More than one thousand people to be as news. White House correspondent ouija Jiang reports President Trump says Mexico could easily and quickly stop illegal immigrants from crossing its border, but it does not so to penalize Mexico for the surge of migrants. Five percent tariffs would kick in on June tenth, they will be removed if the legal migration crisis is alleviated. But if not the tariffs will increase by five percent every month until October, then remain at twenty five percent, backing White House. Chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, said the White House will judge Mexico success. By whether illegal border crossings decrease, but he did not provide specific target. Mexican president Andres Manuel Lopez Oberdorfer is sending delegation here to the White House today.

"Fine. Bill Rakoff in for Steve Dorsey this week and joining us from the White House's CBS news Justice correspondent, Paula Reid. We're talking about the release of the mullahs report a lot of politics this week going on about the we'll get to that in just a second. But interesting filing from former presidential attorney Michael Cohen this week saying he's got a whole lot of extra information. He has to give the congressional authority and forgive me. If there's some skepticism of by some people, but some are wondering about the timing of this a month before he's supposed to report to prison nitrite with just thirty days to go before he reports to prison. Michael Cohen sent a letter to lawmakers letting them know that he has accessed a hard drive that apparently contains about fourteen million files, and he says he's willing to help them go through them. He's only gone through about one percent of them. So far includes images voicemails, possibly other recordings. But he says look I'm going to prison if you want my help with this perhaps we can get my sentence delayed or reduced not on federal prosecutors are going to go this no matter what lawmakers say 'cause they have criticized Coen's cooperation as being incomplete. The mullahs report is we mentioned is getting a lot of attention because of the action on the hill this week House Judiciary authorized chairman Jerry Nadler to be able to subpoena the attorney general for the report itself in any other surrounding evidence, and that sort of thing Republicans mad about that saying look the man's agreed to turn over the report the men degree to come before congress. Why are we going through this dog and pony show? Paula why did they go through this dog and pony show? Well, Democrats have renewed their focus on the Russia investigation of this week. You've seen him sort of escalate their overall investigations into all things Trump as you said they were trying to subpoena. The full Muller report. There is a belief that there could be politically damaging information in there. While the special counsel found no evidence of collusion. There was open question on obstruction of Justice. And now based on anonymous reports from several news outlets democratic leaders are seizing on this idea that perhaps the attorney general withheld some information that could be damaging to the president. And they want to get it. But the fact is the attorney general he's been working on a redacted version of the report he says it'll release that in mid April. And at this point, no judge is going to seriously consider a subpoena for this report until at least the attorney general has had a chance to release that redacted version and bar is gonna be on Capitol Hill next week, not necessarily about the Muller report for budget reasons. But it's a sure bet that he's going to face questions anyway. Yes. Absolutely. In a lot of folks, maybe were a little surprised that they didn't try to reschedule. This lawmakers may not be able to get as much out of him on the Muller probe because they don't yet have. And they're unlikely to have the redacted report and he's only been on on the job. For a few weeks now. So he's spending a lot of his time preparing for this hearing, not necessarily working on that redacted report. I absolutely expect. He will face a firing squad of questions about the special counsel investigation. As part of this overall effort by Democrats to renew focus and really doubled down in their efforts on the Russia investigation. But it's unclear how much he's actually going to be able to share with lawmakers before he releases reducted report CBS's Paula Reed. This is the weekend roundup. The debate is intensified in recent years over the electoral college in which delegates elected by their states cast, the deciding votes for president in the wake of the two thousand sixteen election were Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, but lost Donald Trump who won the electoral vote. Many Democrats are pushing to eliminate the electoral college, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren running for president is one of them. We can have national voting, and that means get rid of the electoral college. Steve Scott is one of the anchors that are great CBS affiliate WCBS in New York. He explores the pros and cons of the electoral college with former Reagan White House counsel, Peter j Wallison now at the American Enterprise Institute, Mr. Wallison, we thank you for joining us in. We'll start with us. What is the best argument for keeping the electoral college system? I think actually the best argument is that it creates legitimacy that no other system can create. Let's think about it in terms of hey, Bill Clinton's election. He never did win a majority of the popular vote. He always had Bo forty eight forty seven percent of the vote, but he won enough electoral vote that there was never any question about whether he was the president and the legitimacy of the president is very very important that of course, is one of the issues that we've been talking about. Now for two years because of the challenges to President Trump, but we can't dismiss that the question of legitimacy to the American people believed if the president would be legit legitimately elected. And he is when he gets two hundred seventy electoral votes for more than he has seen by the American people as the president and vitally important another advantage. I think of the electoral college is that it creates in effect our two party system because it is necessary for a person who is running to assemble two hundred seventy electoral vote that requires that we have a two party system because only a two party system can produce one candidate who get at least two hundred seventy electoral vote. How would you counter? Those who say listen. The candidate with most votes in the country should be elected president, whether a majority or plurality if I get ten more votes than you. I win. Well, the only way to deal with that question is to think about what would happen if we didn't have the electoral college, if we just had the candidate who receives the most popular votes become president. What would happen in a case? Like that is that we wouldn't have two party system because any party could then elect a president a with much less than a even something close to charity with much less than say forty seven forty eight percent of the vote the electoral college was established in seventeen eighty eight. Could it if nothing else be spruced up a bit changed a little maybe allow proportional distribution of votes rather than winner-take-all in the states? Yes, you could. But again, the same problem with probably. Arise as occurs in a case where you have seven or eight or nine parties running with special issues. We do not have a parliamentary kind of system where we can put together several parties into some kind of majority. We have a system where we have to elect a president with a who is acting alone, and is elected hopefully, by in a system that allows most of the American people to believe that he has been or she has been constitutionally, democratically elected, and that's what the electoral system does former.
