with us is the ranking democrat. the allegations were accurate. were some of them accurate? were all of them accurate? were none of them accurate? it's something that we're looking into. it's not really something that i can discuss on this program but this is a matter of deep interest and concern for the committee. >> yes. absolutely relevant but again we have to see whether it could be substantiated. >> when do we expect another hearing from your committee? >> i'm happy to report our committee is back on track. we have a new republican lead. mike conway of texas. he is a very serious guy. we had a number of good conversations since he took the republican reigns. he is quite determined. >> into next week? >> well, we are in the process of agreeing on the first witnesses and
>> will he be called to testify. >> we're hoping so. >> why wouldn't it happen? >> it's not my decision alone. it's important that our committee not only do what we have to do in closed session but as much in open session as we can. bring the public along. otherwise if we go on for months and months and suddenly issue a report i don't think it will have the public's confidence if they haven't seen how we have proceeded with the investigation so i'm hoping where we can we do as much of this as possible in public. >> do you believe when president trump saw what he saw and said what he did about president susan rice?d seen something fro- >> i think and i'm speculating about the president's motive which is is a very tough thing to do but i think that he was looking to make an accusation to deflect attention from the issues involving the investigation and then forced to
back it up and may have dispatched his staff to try to find something. >> she came in at that point when he was trying to back it up. >> it's important not to say that because there's no evidence on that particular charge. in fact they just reported -- >> we're talking about what the president was acting on. >> yeah. so ryan is reporting that he spoke with intelligence sources that said the names of trump associates were masked in those documents that nunes knew. can you clarify that? >> i can't go into the contents of any documents but i can say i think it was reckless of the president to make the accusation against his predecessor that he was illegally wiretapped by obama. it was reckless to accuse susan rice in engaging in criminality. they're not something that the president of the united states
ought to do in any event, level these accusations so we as a part of our ordinary oversight look at issues of whether names were masked or unmasked properly. we're go to review all of that. we were doing that anyway even before the investigation but i don't think casually suggesting people are engaged in illegality makes sense for anyone to do and least of all the president of the united states. >> do you think what nunes did tainted the committee? >> it cast a real cloud over the committee. he made the right decision although i think it was a hard decision to step aside. we now have a fresh start and we have very much back to where we should have been to begin with before the whole white house thing so we are scheduling witnessing. we are agreeing on the process for how to interview them. we'll bring on how to request documents and we're also continuing the review of the classified documents so all of that is preceding the way it should and we're bac
restoring the integrity of the investigation. >> you also see .380est information on north korea, correct? >> yes. >> north korea may now possess between 10 and 25 nuclear weapons and that's on top of u.s. estimates that they have the world's largest chemical weapons stock pile. can you confirm that? >> i can't confirm the specifics of it because that would require me to use information from a classified basis but i can say probably the most serious national security crisis this president is going to face is when the regime gets to the point where it can put a device on intercontinental ballistic missile. that point will probably come during this four year term of the president so that challenge is coming if something doesn't change and the key is china. getting china to crack down on north korea's programs. thus far china has only been
superficial efforts to do that. i think we can take steps to press upon china the need to do much more and it's not going to come from asking nicely or asking unnicely. i think what it will come with is an acceleration of the implementation of theater missile defense, a greater naval presence in the region and telling china we're going to have to impose secondary sanctions, that is sanctions on your banks for doing business with north korea if you don't act. these are steps they don't want to see happen. they don't want a greater presence by them in the region. we're going to have to do this to protect ourselves and our alabama lice a allies and maybe that gets china to act. >> is it tough to be able to militarize it. >> they're both a challenge but a challenge they're on the path to overcoming. they're making progress with
missile program that we have to reasonably expect that they will get there if things don't change. >> within four years you said. >> i believe so and prudently i think we have to expect so. it still may not be enough even if we get china's help but we need to explore every diplomatic possibility because i'll tell you, the military options are all terrible and it's part of the reason why the president is on very dangerous ground. >> when you he said he was sending an armada there and that turned out not to be the case. >> it turned out not to be the case because it's more than embarrassing because if the provocation of saying that caused the north to he react and we didn't have our capabilities in the region that would compound the problem but north korea can devastate seoul with conventional artillery. they don't need a nuclear weapon to do that so this is a very combustible situation and i think the president needs to be very careful not to either

drivers pay a toll to avoid traffic while helping ease congestion. >> we have found here on 95 that we have more capacity one way and people opting in. >> many infrastructure projects and 15 states do not allow them. is this tunnel project a cautionary tale for the trump administration? >> yes. i think that what is most important is they need to look very closely at how the project is being funded and at the end of the day, what are the taxpayers going to be responsible for under the arrangement that they make with these public private partnerships? >> after the tunnel project virginia changed the way they approached public-private partnerships. first the state must show that a private industry can deliver at a lower cost to taxpayers
itself. there is room to expand public-private partnerships in the u.s. they make up only about 1% of infrastructure projects here. in europe it's closer to 10%. >> thank you, chris. one of the most influential chefs in american cuisine might be someone you have never heard of but you should, his name is jeremiah tower and he's in our green room right now with anthony bourdain. ahead a new documentary highligh

voice, a unique vision that came along and changed not just the way we eat. the way we looked at american ingredients and american sourcing and the role of the chef in the dining scene as suddenly the chef is someone you wanted to see in the dining room and whose opinion you wanted. >> and then stars that really transformed in many ways created the template the open kitchen. >> why do people not know more about jeremiah? i knew about him from something we have done together. >> victory is -- history is written by the victors. i think jeremiah wasn't around for awhile and allowed people to create out of laziness a narrative that persists and people became --

>> i read the memoir and was outraged at an injustice of the history of california and new american cooking and the book also made me realize that hi been cooking dishes that were influenced by he and his work for much of my career without even knowing they were his work. it's the lobster or the fish. >> so many of the restaurants i worked with had been directly effected and changed by the great innovator and i thought i'd like to step in and do what i can and correct the record. that was originally in the film. >> you did that. >> but also i think it's a great character story about what it takes
