6:15 pm
let's listen to what he had to say and then we want to get your take on the other side. >>f we don't get a fair deal from congress, the government will either shutdown on february 15th again, or i will use the powers afforded to me under the laws and the constitution of the united states to address this emergency. >> interpret that for us. >> he needed to show that he has some leverage left. if you're going to fully cave, which he d, he's taking the exact same deal that was on his desk on december 21st. okay. four days before christmas that was passed by the senate, this ng the exact same deal exact funding was go to run out february 8th now in this one funding runs out februa 15th. but the same deal. it was a face saving move. he needed to sho his base that i'm reopening the government but
6:16 pm
i'm still going to fight for this, and i'll use that national emergency power if i can. i don't know if he has this kind of leverage, because the problem he'soing to have this time. i don't think republicans will go along with shuttg down the government. it's possible they pass a bill that they create the paycheck protection act. we've protected paycheck during shutdowns for military, protected social se payments. i feel a feeling there's going mto beentum all full-time workers, maybe not contractors, have their paycheck protected. i think he lost a bunch of bu leverage here, he had to put out something that shows he's willing to keep fighting. it 5 days, he said earlier can go on for months, i don't care. >> we heard them asking about -- >> why today. everyone is saying we woke up with this roger stone stone thing and he's a master of distracti
6:17 pm
distraction. is there anything to that? >> i really believe if you saw -- when he waived the white flag on the state of the union that to me was signalinge wanted out. he was looking for a way out. he wanted a fig leaf, tomething et him out. but i don't think stone had the influenc you had christopher ray and an extraordinary video he put out showing anger and trying to raise morale of unpaid fbi agents, unpaid fbi agents who went to roger sto's house today, they were not being paid at the time. you had the fact more republicans voted emr the ratic bill in the senate than democrats did for his bill. so i thinkle it was the cion of all of this. he realized he was about this -- republicans -- senate republicans were yelling at each other. they were turning on each other. the party was turning on each other. you had ron johnson going after mitch mcconnell and a punch of people yelling at mike pence. this was going to rip the republican party art today.
6:18 pm
this still might but at least they have a cease-fire. >> you had a ground stop at laguardia. you start shutting down our air travel we're in a world of hurt. >> the trump ioorganiza's airplane is always on the ground at laguardia when you go there. you see ituite a t. so his own family might not have been able to fly today. so i think the laguardia also had impact. i do. >> we don't want to overlook the roger stone indictment. very big deal and very significant charges. obstruction of justice, lying to congress, where does this leadi he big picture of the mueller investigation. >> we've had all our legal analysts. we've been cutting into programming, i know you've been foto see a loot of this. there's two parts of the t. indictme this is mueller's clearly upset at how much he tampered with witnesses and obstructed justice. they brought down the hammer on him othis. the other part of the indictment
6:19 pm
was the beginning of the road mapf collusion. he started to lay out the case he has for collusion, at least between the trump campaign and wikileaks. now there -- that's not a connection yet to the russians. obviously the u.s. vernment believes wikileaks is a front or an arm or asset of t russian intelligence. but the fact that he's at least got that laid out,at connects wikileaks, stone and therump organization, you start to see where this could be going. to prove collusion at least with wikileaks is a big giant step forward in this mueller probe. >> who do youave on on sunday? how do you begin to encapsulate this? >> we have a grelineup, i take your point, i got the lead republican in thehouse, kevin mccarthy, very tight with then presi jeffreys, leadership on the house democratic side. and marco rubi which i think he wants to talk about >> get in line. >> this is one heck of a week
6:20 pm
nd we haven't gotten to venezuela and thethings. we may be -- you know, who knowl the u.s.ary may be brought in to a least rescue diplomats at some point in venezuela. itee like that's on a back burner because ofverything else. >> we're counting on you to break it down for us on sunday. >> i also ha a new wall street journal pole comg out sunday. >> will you be doing any dramatic threats that roger stone's people made -- >> i feel we could play "god father ii" without having to pay fee. ights >> thank you for your perspective. and you can catch "meet the atss" here on 4 starting 10:30 sunday morning. next at 6:00, tracking the arctic ter storm, the air making it feel like it's
