6:16 pm
senators total. in some ways i think the there were only 12 and the fact that 11 of the 12 weren't up -- one 2020er had the guts to vote against theenpres every other republican senator up for reelection in 2020 voted with him. even ones in tough general elections. they're so worried about the primary. one h you consider 12 senators rebuked him. the other han i think the power he has over his party shows you it's only 12 senators. >> the u.s. typically considered as we know an authority in aviation.th ultimate authority, really. but there is international criticism after these two plane crashes in five months. talk about the fallout with boeing and these planes. >> it's on boeing first and foremost. they have a lot more questions to answer for, considering this seems to be -- there was concerns after the i sandonesia
6:17 pm
crash. i think the trump administration has to be concerned that you have a former boeg exec who's the acting defense secretary. was the slow response of the deral government at all -- right, is there any because of the connections that the federal government has with ng. i think that you got to be careful. boeing is suchha an -- the ties to both parties. this isn't something you just put on the trump administration, in fairness to them. boeing is abipartisan, if you company.e of that's i think the trump administration -- i tell you, the oddest thing of it all was the fact that trump himself announce it. it should have been the faa. this goes to a larger issue if trump continues to sort of try to bring the entire white house into him that he makes himself the lone ash or the of everything, the wall, the announcement of a ground, that is all and that goe to -- i think that creates bigger problems for him, i think in
6:18 pm
running his administration, that is something that doesn't go over well withths in the administration. >> seems like every friday for weeks now we've been hearing that this special counsel investigation is -- we're almost, it's almost finished. we have the paul manafort ngntenced, we're hea a couple top people from that investigation are leaving for her jobs. what's going on? where do we stand with this? >> in fairness i didn't think it was going to happen today because i didn't think would submit the report on the ides of march. repo you don't hand reporters and television makers that easy copy like that. that washe one reason i didn't it would happen today. >> next friday then? >> you have the fact that the one thing we did hea from him today an extension for one of the witness he had flipped,
