6:18 pm
leakinti this informaon that somehow michael cohen is ready to finger the president as knowing about this infamous trump tower meeting. i would take a step back and say the bigger significance is clear, michael cohen wants to cut a deal. what's not clear is why is he basically buying a billboardn times square, doing it that way. that's not clear. >> why isn't he getting a deal if he's really got something? >> that's the other thin a couple prosecutors say they're not ready. the, quote, queen for a day idea, where prosecutors decide if you have something that's worth doing. the other thing, for him to become credible -- when you have somebody who ishen caught lying and then he decides to turn right and flip in order to make that flipped witness credible, they have to cop tome ing. they need to plead guilty to something. i'm admitting what i did. i'm telling you what he did. is he going to admit it? prosecutors admit, we're not

6:21 pm
believe is a trumped up charge. what's interesting is theba ador was telling me, he faid all the russian press, you have an idea what may have taken place in the russian president. it isn't what mike pompeo is saying, it looks like they talked about montenro, spent a lot of time talking about this mcginn ski act, let's do a quid pro quo. they talked a lot about potentially syria and what to do with iran. a any referendum in kraine for the crimea issue. it appears a lot of the most controversial parts o the lationship between the two countries were discussed in that private meeting. mike pompeo didn't seem the details. >> we may never know what transpired in that meeting. know.on would you take vladimir putin's word? that's heproblem. we basically have the two translators. >> who is os the show t weekend? >> we're going to try to get a
