7:08 am
about the circumstances of comey's firing and not even the justice department are immune. special counsel robert mueller turning to the justice department as his investigators dig into whether president trump or anyone else tried to derail the ongoing probe of russian interference into last year's election. although he has not criticized mueller recently the president has not hidden his disdain for the probe. >> the entire thing has been a witch-hunt. >> reporter: mueller's team asked the justice department turn over e-mails and other documents relating to attorney general jeff sessions recusal from the russia investigation and president trump's subsequent decision to fire comey. so far he has refused to publicly discuss what he told him about axing comey. the justice department and the special counsel's office declined to comment but sessions has said he willcooperate with the special counsel. >> per, we're learning the publicist that set up the don
7:09 am
that publicist is set to talk to robert mueller. >> rob goldstone said he's keen to talk and put his recollection on the record so that june 2016 meeting at trump tower remains in focus and jared kushner who attended that meeting has recently been accused by senate leaders of withholding information about additional contacts with the russians. but kushner's attorney said he's cooperating fully and kushner rejected additional offers of meeting with the russians. >> it continues. thank you. let's bring new hampshire cecilia vega, also our chief political analyst matthew dowd with me. cecilia, let me begin with you and saw that reporting from pierre. mueller now reaching into the justice department also reaching pretty deep now into the white house. it is clear the president is also being investigated. >> reporter: yeah, he just a few days ago, said he himself is not under investigation. but i mean as you say, certainly his top aide, his close advisers are definitely part of this probe, in fact, in just the coming days we know one of his
7:10 am
communications director will be sitting down with mueller's investigators, same for the white house counsel don mcgahn. no one can saying they're nervous. this is very much business as usual for this white house. privately we know everyone has lawyers. you can't imagine that certainly this is not and front and center in many minds. >> absolutely, matt dowd, you know 24 from experience and ran into a trump associate yesterday who said once you get to this situation inside the white house it's every man for himself. >> absolutely. they're all going to be looking for their pathway exit out but the problem is everybody in the trump organization from the president on down said there's been no contacts with the russian, had said there was no contacts with the russians. we now know there's been 30 or 40 plus contacts they figured out. either there is mass amnesia or the russians have a neuralizer from "men in black." >> let's talk about roy moore as well. pretty clear over the weekend on "this week" i had the
7:11 am
mark short on there. they want this issue with roy moore, these questions about roy moore's accusers to just go away. >> reporter: they want to talk about tax reform this week. this is front and center. but you pushed mark short repeatedly during that interview as we have here at the white house to push aides to ask whether the president is comfortable with roy moore being the next sitting senator from alabama and you can't get a straight answer here. i was struck by another aide who on the sunday shows said that he doesn't know -- the president doesn't know who to believe when it comes to roy moore's or his accusers so a lot of questions still we haven't heard directly from the president. >> this is a lose/lose for the white house. >> it absolutely is. the president i think in the midst of all this, every single step he seems to make in this is like -- his tweets yesterday are a perfect example of how he only hurts himself in this. jeff flake, he attacked jeff flake whose vote he needs and go

[ applause ] come on. >> thank you. >> helping us get into the giving spirit as we get ready for thanksgiving. you had me at awaken the giant within. you did back in the '90s, you awoke this giant within me. 'tis the season. it's thanksgiving week. you know, there are a lot of people that are trying to get into that -- into that spirit. how can you help us do it. >> the fastest way is to get outside yourself. all the stress people have at home because we have a 2 million dollar brian that is designed to look what is wrong. if you let it run the show instead of your heart you'll be in trouble. they start react. we used to worry about sabre tooth tigers. nothing like that. so people think of us, how will
8:44 am
my mom respond to my date argue with my brother so i tell people the fastest way to get out of it is to trade expectations at how things are supposed to for appreciation of what you have. i work with feeding america. when i was 11 we had no food for thanksgiving. and we were fed so when i was 17 i fed two families, four, eight, got to a million, 2 million, 4 million people and interviewing for my new book these 50 brilliant people, warren buffett and cut food stamps by $7 billion. that means every family that gets help has to give up food for a whole week every month if we don't step in. i thought what if i fed 50 million people a year so i'm feeding a billion people over seven years in partnership and we've already said -- we've already fed 300 million. 100 million every year, 80 million this year and reaching out, anyone watching, if you want to get in the spirit, all the research shows if you do things for yourself, you feel okay.
8:45 am
but en them give away their toy or give away their goodies they're more excited and test your chemistry to show. i'll match any amount you give to, forward splash tony robbins. we want to do another 20 million meals before the end of the year. [ applause ] >> wonderful. also i want to put this down. whenever you're here you always give us a little something to walk away with and to help us to get into that because we want to pay it forward just like how you are doing so help us with an exercise. >> one thing to do realize focus equals feeling. when people think about the holidays they think about all the time, the time crunch. you don't have a pressure cooker for the turkey but for the feeling too. ask better questions. if i said to all of you, just try it. something simple and said what are you grateful for in your life? that's what thanksgiving is about. think of something or someone you're grateful for for a
8:46 am
moment. who can think of something experience. close your eyes and for a moment, think about that moment and step in like you're there like you're seeing as it was happening and breathing how you're grateful. what's the look on your face when you're overwhelmed with gratitude or joy. raise your hand if you can feel that feeling now. try another one. think of something you could feel really proud of and i don't mean eagle proud. but proud of your children or proud of yourself because you've really done something. how do you breathe when you're proud. if you're a little kid and proud what shows up on your face. you don't hide it. when you can feel that proud. and then do one more real quick. try excitement. if you really want to be excited about something, how many can think of something you could be excited about. so just focus on it. focus, where focus goes energy flows. focus equals feeling. if you want to be prepared for thanksgiving think of your family in advance and oh, my god, what is going to happen. what do i love about them.
8:47 am
what made us laugh our or made us feel so close. you've primed your brain to react in a different way than the stress way. >> we can do this.
