7:04 am
the republican effort to overturn obamacare. nancy, good morning. it sure was good to see john mccain yesterday. >> it really was. but then that big setback for republicans just a couple of hours later, and what that vote shows is that whatever republicans end up with at the conclusion of this days-long process, it is unlikely to be a full replacement plan for obamacare. this was the latest replacement plan they got and they saw dissection from moderates, conservatives, and some centrists. >> the motion is not agreed to. >> it came hours after the senate narrowly voted to debate. it took john mccain arriving from arizona to put republicans over the top. senator mccain, newly diagnosed with cancer then berated the body he has served in for 30 years. >> we're getting nothing done, my friends. we're getting nothing done. >> he made it clear that while he voted to start debate on the

8:03 am
>> mccain who entered to loud applause and big hugs says congress must find a bipartisan fix to health care. >> i like it. it says john mccain proves he's not the line of the senate but he's a wildcat. >> i love that he came looking the way he did 11 days after the surgery. h was so warmly received. nice to see. president trump returned to ohio at a campaign rally. >> we're now one step closer to liberating our citizens from this obamacare nightmare and delivering great health care for the american people. >> the president called for an appeal of the affordable care act. yesterday he issued attacks on attorney general jeff sessions for recusing himself from the russian investigation. the president himself asked if he plans to fire sessions.
8:04 am
he answered, quote, time will tell. russian officials are blasting a vote in congress for a new package of sanctions. lawmakers in the house overwhelmingly voted yet for the measures in response to russia's meddling in tee lekz. the sanctions also come after the military moves in syria and ukraine. the bill moves to the senate now. charlie d'agata is in moscow. charlie, good morning. >> good morning from moscow. the russians are already considering ways to retaliate as washington moves one step closer to imposing more issues here. they say it only worses relations and they're steering into unchatted territory. another lawmaker says the only course ahead is to come up with a painful response to washington's decision. and the director of the international affairs counsel andre court november said
8:05 am
russians aren't thrilled to be thrown into the same basket as iran. >> three bad guys, you'll get the same treatment from the united states congress. and with all due respect, russia is not north korea. >> reporter: ultimately the only meaningful response or retaliation will come from russian president vladimir putin who has so far remained silent on the developing situation. gail? >> thank you charlie d'agata. the senate judiciary pulled back its subpoena on paul manafort. manafort spoke yesterday with congressional investigators. he also began producing documents. the house intelligence committee interviewed president trump's son-in-law and white house adviser. that lasted almost three hours. republican congressman trey gowdy is a member of the house

8:07 am
2016, the donald trump jr. meeting. he said he left shortly after he got there. there's two e-mails that corroborate that where he's telling his assistant, get me out of here as quickly as you can. the most telling to me was the one the day after the election where he had to ask what's the name of the russian ambassador because he can't remember. that's not good colluding when you can't remember the person you're colluding with. >> let's turn to president trump calling attorney general jeff sessions very weak, an official of the united states order. are those remarks wrong? >> they're not helpful. you should make critiques in private and you shouldn't tweet
8:08 am
it. >> he doesn't work for the president. he works for a woman blindfolded with a pair of scales. this is best discussed privately between two grownups and if he's lost confidence in him, then attorney general sessions can take the appropriate steps. but doing this publicly, i don't think, helps our justice system. >> you were saying the attorney general should have recused himself, aren't you? >> absolutely. he didn't have any choice but to recuse himself, but he also should have told everyone about all the meetings he had with russian diplomats and ambassadors we should haven't to wait on "the new york times" to tell us. he should tell us. >> the president is saying this is the man who told me he's going to do. he would not have nominated him to be his attorney general, which is very strange on its face. >> i don't think so. if i were interviewing people
8:09 am
for the a.g. job, i would want to know, is there any reason you can't do the job? are there any case use would recuse yourself? let's not kid ourselves. jeff sessions is not the only person in america qualified to be attorney general. e can think of a number of people. one of the questions when vetting is are there any cases you ear not going to be able to par tess pate in? he should say, yes, three's a very beg one. >> what happens if the president of the united states fires bob mueller. >> he can't. >> the attorney general can? >> the only person who can fire special council is special counsel who is recused which means its would be rod >> he says he is consults with
8:10 am
advisers that if jeff sessions resigns or is fired while the congress is on recess, someone can be put into attorney general and won't have to be confirmed by the u.s. senate. does that worry i don't like re appointments. i didn't like it whe obama did it. i don't look it when republican deposit. it circumvents it. you can put me in the >> counsel, this is an yes or no question. should robert mueller be fired? >> no. it's a family television show, so i won't give the two-word answer. >> is the first word an "h"? >> yes.
