7:03 am
conducting most of the attack. it's part of a broader set of regional tensions between the sunni of isis and the shia of iran. >> obviously they're adversaries as you point out, but then again, striking right in the heart of tehran, striking at the shrine outside tehran. what is the likely retaliation that isis or elements of isis might see? >> the concern is iran would retaliate against other sunni countries like saudi arabia in the region, and th could be the spark that could ignite a broader regional war. that's something u.s. officials will have to keep their eye on. >> thank you for that sryhi morning. another major story. a slew of new developments around donald trump and the russia investigation. it's all happening one day before this explosive testimony on capitol hill tomorrow. there's a report today that then fbi director

7:05 am
to get the agency to back off the investigation into russia and form a national security adviser michael flynn. near the end of the briefing the president asked everyone to leave the room except for coats and mike pom ppeo. also this morning "the new york times" reports the day after president trump asked comey to end his investigation into flynn, comey told jeff sessions he did not want to be left alone again with the president. while comey believed the attorney general should protect the fbi from white house influence, the times reports sessions couldn't guarantee the president wouldn't try to talk to comey alone again. when asked about comey's upcoming testimony, the president said only this. >> i wish him luck. >> sources say when he testifies thursday, he's likely to detail a pattern of what
7:06 am
were inappropriate conversations with the president about the russia investigation. but he's not expected to accuse the president of obstruction of justice. one pro trump group set to air this add attacking comey's credibility. >> james comey, just another d.c. insider only in it for himself. >> late tuesday the president's son lashing out at tho who oppose his father's administration. >> i've never seen hatred like this. to me, they're not even people. it's so so sad. morality has just gone, morals have flown out the window. >> reporter: this morninne details about turmoil between the president and the attorney general. a source close to the administration desc trump's huge level of frustration with sessions. not just for unnecessarily recusing himself from the russia inquiry but monday morning quarterbacking other decio john spicer refusing to

7:08 am
consumed the president on every level. the report about the director of national intelligence was more than just -- he wanted him to go to comey and say lay off of mike flynn and the russia investigation. in talking to people very close and supportive of dan coats, he's been concerned all along by the atmosphere of the relationship between his interactions with the white house and intel. he testifies today. there's two days of hearings. comey's tomorrow. but he testifies today and that's going to be a big part of this conversation as well. he's going to help add to this obvious nature where the president is just consumed. >> we don't know what james comey is going to say but there are reports he will stopho of accusing the president of trying to obstruct justice. might we have a situation where we're talking about the legal definition of obstruction versus the emotional definition of obstruction? >> yes. it's by obstruction of justice
7:09 am
on this point. but the fact is all of the circumstantial evidence re says the president is trying to do everything he could to stop this investigation for one reason or the other. we don't have the motivation behind it just yet, and he's asked people to step in multiple times. yes, james comey is going to have to explain why if he was so concerned to write a memo that he didn't take it to his superior. in this case, either the attorney general or the deputy attorney general. we're in a crisis i think as a country with our institutions. if the reasoning is what the director of the fbi is saying that he didn't know who the trust at the situation. if we're in a situation where the director of the fbi can't trust his superiors, now you have that superior offer his resignation to the president. where are we? we're not in a very good place, and folks on capitol hill -- it's another check moment for them. >> a role for congress to play. >> yes. >> we
