pennsylvania was a big state. condition text that mueller went the people that voteq for trump beyond what was asked of him. in 2016 that put him in the oval it seems that he wanted to lay office, what is the sense among out all of this evidence so it those types of people about this was known to the attorney general before he wrote that mueller report, is it something letter, katy. they are hearing or do they feel >> less than a thousand pages. the washington post has been reporting. wh it is a vindication for the what do you make of the length of the report verses the length president? >> i think by and large the of the summary. mueller report is now >> look, some people talk about the cliff notes version from yesterday's news for republicans bill barr which is like a book report on war and peace. and for democrats, it is not it is about russia. we know nothing about what's in news yet because it has not been the mueller report and it is not just the evidence that they'll issued. the president needs some be fighting over. we need to know the analysis, traditionally rural democrats to vote for him. why exactly as director comey >> it is a unique combination of would say did mueller do this voters for trump to win very, very perplexing thing of not reaching a bottom line. reelection in those states verses some suburban voters, did he do it to leave it congress. if he did that and the attorney general decided to basically traditionally republicans voted counter man &him, that's a & for secretary hillary clinton.
problem. that's a problem for the >> is it the worst thing in the political official as comey says world to stop talk about this to take on himself and it means and talk about healthcare? that the judge was taken outs of >> making it for healthcare won't work. congress' hands. >> would it be the worse thing that would be something that for the president to stop talking about the mueller report congress, i think would want to and the russia investigation and reassert its rights about. start talking about policies in >> let me play you what the terms of his 2020 chances? judge is saying about the report >> i think republicans are on "fox business" of the better right now focusing on prediction that he's making, what democrats are focusing on. harry. >> in the 700 page summary of >> i am saying half of the the 2 million pages of evidence, democratic candidates percentage wise want to no longer have there is some evidence of a conspiracy and some evidence of private healthcare insurance. obstruction of justice. most americans are not going to once the 700 pages come out and agree with that. if we focus on democrats want to move the healthcare debate and acknowledge of the house care this is my criticism on the system we have right now, attorney general, he should not republicans are in a much better tipped his hands-on this. position. the democrats will have problems if we are talking about getting rid of the aca. and a field day of what's in >> i don't want to be doing there. right. if there were no evidence of conspiracy and no evidence of >> right now where the trump campaign is and policies are

the new york times has talked to many of them. schiff. it was reprehensible. mass killings as well. >> talking about gun violence what i do think is important is that the american people had a can lead to sudden spasms. hearing in public that they can listen to and listen to experts on russia. former ambassador of russia. two parkland students died by former ciaa desk chair of suicide. on monday, the father of a russia. little girl killed at sandy hook and experts who just written the also took his own life. putin play book part two. their death put a spotlight on we need to get serious of the survivor's skills on what need adversary nature of russia to change in washington so loved engagement inta our state. ones don't feel like they are being left behind. joining me now is the father of the young man that spoke a week they all say that our system is after the parkland shooting. too poor. two of his sons were in the i don't care if you are a school and they republican or a democrat, you want to make sure your vote counts. if you have putin trying to put his thumb on the scale and affect our elections, we are in
deep trouble. >> do you agree with congressman schiff that there is evidence of collusion. >> i hate the word collusion. it is conspiracy or coordination. was there an interest in coordination with the russians? has taken his own life as well. you bet there was. i love what don jr. said when he it is a very stressful time in got the e-mail and was asked if the country as far as these he wanted to meet with the types of events have have occurred and it is a very, very russians who had dirt on hillary clinton and you have paul trying time. manafort meeting in a cigar bar >> does it make you worry about your son? >> it does, my wife and i are in new york city with kilimnik talking to them constantly about who has ties with the russians' what has occurred and how they're feeling and checking in gbu which is their kgb or spy with them and we talked to him operations. he hands them polling data? several times a day, and she i think it is pretty clear there still going to stoneman douglas was an effort to engage and of and he is talked to very course the hacking of the dnc regularly also. and the dump and the president i conditionaled a business trip this week so i could be there is saying, you know russia show and be around for the kids who us where the e-mails are for are on break this week, but we have to be really communicating
clinton. >> so do you think there is and really looking for signs. and you know, signs are not evidence of openness to always apparent, but we have to coordinate as you just laid out. be looking for several and make what's the remedy in congress? sure that our kids are not >> the remedy in congress is to perceiving this in the wrong get serious. i mean very serious about our way. >> how are your sons doing? voting systems throughout the >> well i would say there are decent days and bad days. you know it has been very few country. high moments in the past 13 they provide the hardware and months. it is still a struggle. software and many buzz in that sam has been on the road so to software. it is poorest and hackable. speak, exercising and using his and if we care about this as one of our witnesses today said all voice to push out sensible gun european countries are using reform, and matthew on the other paper ballots. hand has been not talking about it very much, and that of course >> if you believe the campaign does worry us about him a little is evidence is an effort to conspire or openness to conspire, what's the remedymuel bit, but we're staying in touch. my wife is very close to the kids and we're trying to keep shows there was not enough to find him guilty or indicted of a
crime our finger on this as best we >> that's something that needs to come out before the american can. >> in the aftermath of shootings like this, there is a ton of public. it is interesting that we spent attention paid to those that the last week basically spouting survived and the victims on what the president have said themselves, but as the time goes on that attention shifts when we have not seen the report. the republicans and democrats elsewhere. and even though people don't forget, it can seem like the should not wait to see the country has moved on. report. what do you think survivors need let's see how damming, if it is damming about the obstruction of in order to make sure they feel justice and the interest in like they are not being left cooperating or coordinating. i think this is far from over. i think the victory lap is very behind and may not have been forgotten. >> i think there is two parts to premature. that answer. >> jared kushner is back on the we need to push forward on legislation, and currently there hill today, if you were in front is, i believe, 79 bills in of that committee, what would you be asking him? various stages of getting >> i would be asking him about why he was so interested in a back channel to russia. approved or not approved pd. i would be asking about his engagement with -- i would ask we need our laws enforced. engagement with -- i would ask him of lastly and most importantly, and his family has in saudi there seems to be a mental health initiative because we,

that's the only way as americans to finally get a clear picture of why or why not people were lying and why they were really involved in this case and let america decide and put all the chips on the table. mueller and what the president himself has. >> i realize the campaign is looped -- luke warm about connecting with russia. but trump has been talking about russia his entire run. >> regardless of what the campaign may have said to you, you believed that donald trump really wanted to have a better relationship with us. >> by the time i joined in 2016,
donald trump was vocal of having some working relationship with russia. the campaign was fully aware of what i was up to regarding and trying to set this meeting up between trump and putin. i told donald trump to his face and jeff sessions to his face of that infamous march 31st meeting that i can do this for you and it is in the interest of the campaign. jeff sessions was thenthusiasti about it and i proceeded. i ended up introducing trump to the egyptian president. that was my job. i was a foreign policy adviser. my role was designed to help him with the speeches and help him fashion and articulate a really interesting foreign policy perspective and introduce some type of leaders around the world. there was nothing illegal about vladimir putin. that's what i was trying to do. >> why do you think donald trump wanted to be close to vladimir putin. do you think because he was trying to build a trump tower in
moscow? >> you know i have nothing to do with candidate trump or president trump's business so i have no idea. i do think it was a strategic logic behind working with russia. if we don't work with russia, china is a huge threat to the u.s. interest. they're in syria and ukraine, that's what my firm believed why donald trump wanted to work with russia. >> the russia attacked our elections, do you think it is a good idea to work close with russia of all that you know now? >> leading up with my involvement to my campaign, i was hostile to russia. if luyou look at my work, everything about my career leading up to joining these two presidential campaign of ben carson campaign and donald trump campaign were about undermining russian influences around the world. i have no reason to believe that russia did not try and interfere with the 2016 election and i
believe that many other government tried as well. any presidential campaign of the election season is the most highly watched event around the world. both allies and foes are going to try to interfere. if russia is the high topic and we are going to focus on them, we should. they should be punished but we should look at other facts as well. >> our intelligence agency have concluded. george pappapadopoulos, thank y for joining us. >> appreciate it, katy. >> president trump wants to replace obamacare for the election, just do not ask them how. >> what is the plan so 20 million americans are not suddenly without health insurance? >> you should rest assured that 20 million americans -- why should i be rest assure if there is no plans?
>> what is the plan going to be from the white house in order to replace it because again we have not seen a plan that has a consensus from many republicans. >> there will be meant of tiple to come and you will see the health and secretary services will be doing that. >> senator, thank you for joining us, i talked to mark shorts at lengths today on "meet the press daily," i asked him over and over again of where is the plan on donald trump's trying to tear down boobamacare. are you hearing anything of what they are working on right now. is there something that's in the process of coming together? >> i almost laughed out loud when he said we got plenty of
time to put together a plan. they had nine years and for him to say well, we were supposed to have 24 million people and we only had about 12. they grossly about strategisabo affordable care act. not many people signed up because they have been doing everything they can to cripple the affordable care act. they don't have a plan. you know it will be amazing if they come up with anything remotely like a mplan. the only plan was making blocks and grants to the state and say you can do what you want with this money and it is a way of u funds for medicaid and undermine. there is a lot of provisions of the affordable care act other than the ones providing coverage for people, for example, being able to keep your kids on your
policies until he or she is 26 years old, that would go away. the donut hole is closing for seniors and medicare on drug benefits. that would go away. there is enormous ramifications. i have seen figure up to 15 million people would have preexisting conditions that would fot not be able to get insurance. well over 300 people would be affected by the appeal of the affordable care act. i don't understand why these people don't want people out of america to have health concerns. it never made sense to me and it certainly does not now. >> how is it going to potentially affect your colleague in main, senator susan collins collins? >> she was one of the ones voted against the repeal efforts in the summerq senator john mccain and lisa
murkowski. she knows that i marched behind her in the parade that summer and saw people coming up to both of us and in a parade they usually say congratulations, happy 4th, welcome to town. this time they said save our healthcare. please don't let them take away the healthcare that this child has today. i suspect that susan collins is going to be a tough sale supposedly replace the affordable care act. >> i wish they start talking to us about fixing it instead of being so in on destroying it. >> do you have any idea of what republicans are telling donald trump? some republicans say now is not the right time and they don't want to relitigate this 2018, those elections basically all about healthcare. you had republicans trying to run under this as well. josh hawley ran on protecting
preexisting conditions. obviously, republicans see healthcare as an issue they need to be stronger on. do they behind the scenes want to keep obamacare in place and keep them steady and don't want the president to take it. what are you hearing? >> i can't report on private conversations. i think republicans are stunned on this move the other day that the president had a good day on sunday where the barr's letter came out and he was taking a victory lapse and it was a self-inflicted wounds to take this step which was against the advice of attorney general and ahead of home and human services which is what we are learning. i think it was advice of a lot of the republicans. they had something that was going for him and all of a sudden, they shifted the ground
to an issue that had a great deal to do with the democrats taking the house in 2018. >> quick question, if the court rules and the president's favor and dismantle obamacare, do democrats have a plan to replace it and they'll be putting forward. there are a number of plans and they'll come forward with those plans when the time comes and the pressure will be on the republican senate and the president to either cooperate and try to work something out or to be intransigent and going back to the position of we don't like people to have health insurance. it is a loser politically. it is bad policy and it hurts people. these are real lives. these are people of the whole thing of k;nppreexisting conditions -- these folks want to take itxñ away.
