Jeffrey Toobin suspended by The New Yorker, on leave from CNN

"About. Jeffrey Toobin, CNN's chief legal analyst and longtime writer and reporter for The New Yorker, has been sidelined. Because he exposed himself during a zoom call with colleagues in what he says was an accident. A New Yorker says they suspended to have been following the incident and they're investigating the matter, Toobin says. I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake believing I was off camera. I apologized to my wife, family, friends and co workers. I believe that was not visible on zoom. I thought No one on the zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the zoom video. So if you mute on zoom, that's the sound right? Correct. It's not the picture. And you have the little icon of the microphone, which you can draw you.

Donald Trump denies NYT report he tried to interfere in Michael Cohen probe

"That President Trump tried to interfere in the federal investigation of his former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen. The president is now denying New York Times story that he asked then acting attorney general Matt Whitaker to put a Trump supporter in charge of the pro supporter. US attorney Jeffrey Berman had already recused himself from the investigation. And the times reports the president soured on Winokur when he was unable to make this happen. Auspey congressman Roque of the oversight committee and our correspondents analysts have full coverage of the day's top stories us, go straight to our White House. Correspondent Caitlyn Collins. Caitlyn take us through this truly remarkable report alleging that the president tried to influence the Michael Cohen investigation. Yeah. Wolf if you're starting to sense of pattern here. I'm not sure anyone can blame you an explosive report in the New York Times that claims that the president asked then acting attorney general mad. Whitaker to reach out to the US attorney in the southern district of New York and try to get him to unrequir- himself from overseeing that investigation into Michael Cohen hush money payments to women an investigation that is tied to the president. And this report wolf that the president today denied. Stunning report in the New York Times, claiming President Trump asked then acting attorney general Matt Whitaker to put someone who is supported Trump in charge of investigating hush payments made by his former fixer Michael Cohen. I think he's done a great job. Bombshell. Trump to nine today. No. Gave you that us. More fake news. A lot of a lot of fake fake news out there. No, I did the person Trump wanted in the job US attorney for the southern district of New York. Jeffrey Berman had ardor himself from overseeing the pro according to the times it's unclear how Whitaker responded, and there's no evidence he took steps to intervene despite telling us OC, it's that he knew part of his job was to jump on a grenade for the president still Whitaker remarked that the New York prosecutors required adult supervision, according to the times while Berman is recused from this probe. He has not recused from another that could touch Trump one looking into the president's inaugural committee the times adding Trump soured on Whitaker after his inability to make the change and he has since been replaced by Bill bar, but Whitaker could be facing bigger problems. He recently told a congressional committee under oath that the president had never pressured him regarding any. Investigations at no time has the White House. Ask for nor have I provided any promises or commitments concerning the special counsel's investigation or any other investigation. Whitaker is now under scrutiny by house. Democrats. Potential perjury today at DOJ spokesperson said he stands by his testimony and Trump is standing by him to very very straight shooter. I watched him during the hearing some of it. I thought he was exceptional since Trump told advisors deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein, assured him the Cohen investigation had nothing to do with him. The New York Times reports he has since wondered if Rosenstein was deliberately misleading him to keep him calm. The extensive report is also claiming Trump's told advisers and February twenty seventeen they should say he asked for Michael Flynn's resignation because quote that sounds better pressed by Sean Spicer, if it was true Trump reportedly. Responded say that say that I asked for his resignation, according to the times White House lawyers were so concerned about what Spicer said from the briefing room podium that they compiled an entire memo laying out his misstatements the White House counsel reviewed and determined that. There is not an illegal issue. But rather a trust issue. The report coming amid headlines that former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe who was fired last spring briefed congressional leadership about the counterintelligence investigation. He launched into President Trump purpose of the briefing was to let our congressional leadership know exactly what we've been doing opening a case of this nature. Not something that an FBI director, not something that acting FBI director do by yourself, right? And that no one raised concern congress, and I told congress what we had done anyone object. That's the important part here. So that no one of Jack not on legal grounds, not on constitutional grounds. And not based on the facts. Now wolf the times also notes the president has had private conversations with Republican lawmakers about a campaign to attack the Muller probe something he's done over eleven hundred times and could very well serve as a public relations strategy in addition to a legal one will developments. Indeed, art, Caitlyn facts very much. Let's bring in our Justice reporter Laura Jarrett, and our chief legal analyst Jeffrey to then the Lord is President Trump's alleged request of Winokur to replace the person leading the cone investigation of struck to what some are suggesting could be obstruction of Justice the legal question in this case as always what was the president's intent if he wanted to have Berman on the case because he thought he was a better lawyer. And he thought that the US attorney zombie was not doing a good job that might be legitimate. But if he wants Berman on the case because he thinks he's going to protect him. Somehow, that's where we tread into the land of whether he's doing it for corrupt reasons and where obstruction could come into play. But the other point is that the New York Times lays out more. More than just the fact that he wanted Berman on the case, they lay out a month long campaign of trying to undermine the Muller probe. And

"Also had some other signs that maybe something was going on this angle the Roger stoning. So we showed up at his house this morning. We were the only ones there and lo and behold, the FBI agents did Kona arrest them imagine that lo and behold. Yeah, something was having a Thursday that normally happens Friday, so. We're the only ones that showed up and then when the FBI shows up they didn't kick the media out. They welcomed him. I wonder if ahead box of doughnuts and coffee for them. The FBI had doughnuts and coffee for and was it the other way around it CNN bring coffee and donuts for the FBI. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. We showed up in. They're the only ones there the FBI agents say they came and arrested him, and that was really really cool. Allison. The Russia investigation big news in the Russia investigation. This isn't a Russia investigation. And it has been for over a year now later on CNN. They calmed down. Just a little bit John Berman. This is later talking to the author Garrett Graff. Groff about the arrest of Roger stone Berman says, so what are your thoughts now on all of this? It's hard to know at this exact moment is whether this is all that Muller has on Roger stone. Or is this the beginning because it is notably an indictment that's focused only on really those false statements in that obstruction. And it doesn't get into some of those charges that we would expect to see like conspiracy against the United States or campaign finance violations that could point to those larger questions of collusion. So the question is is that still to come? Let me translate. So this guy Garrett Graff looked at the hole. Where's the Russia's stuff in this? Where's the collusion stuff in this? Where is all a working with Russia? Steal the election. Where's that stuff in this? Well, it's not in there. And if this guy had his wits about him when he read the indictment. It would find out isn't going to be in there because the indictment pretty much acknowledges that there wasn't any collusion. Now CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin. Who is very much aware. What I just told you this is his spin on that. Yes. Actually, I think people will say this is yet another is term. I just heard process crime that it is lying to Mahler. But it is not the underlying offense of colluding with Russia. Now, you're not in great shape. If you are parsing, the kinds of crimes with which people in your campaign charged with, but I do think it is true that this is all under the rubric of obstruction rather than the underlying substantive crime. But what he's lying about may be the underlying crime Jeffrey, you've never heard of process crime. You're the legal analyst at CNN, and you've never heard the term process crime. I don't believe that. I think you're saying that simply as a means of deflecting its relevance and importance because I can't believe. That term has been used on your own network that terms been used since Martha Stewart everybody knows what a process cry is. You are the chief legal analyst. For CNN. This is a term. I just heard process crime that is it's lying Muller. But it's not the underlying offensive colluding with Russia. And then after some Gook, he says, yeah, I think it's true. This is all under the rubric of obstruction rather than the underlying substantive crime. Meaning collusion there isn't any. You know, the Muller knows. There isn't any Rosenstein knows Komi all these people in charge this investigation. No that there was no collusion with Russia. Now, the media folks, I can't begin to tell you because I I think these people are so poisoned with hatred that they are capable of believing. What they want to believe just like they get triggered by a make America great again hat. They look at a seventeen year old white teenager, lesean mortar read Trump had enabled conclude racist bigot hatemonger, and they will acknowledge this kid needs to be destroyed. Just because of the cap that he's wearing. So is it hard to believe that they've got all these sources they trust the leak and all this Bs for two years that Trump colluded with Russia? So I don't know I the idea that they are willing dupes in this is in possible be, but it's not they wouldn't just be willing dupes. They would be participating knowingly participating willful dupes. Because I'm gonna tell you this. If they know if Tuban these EMMY of them, if they know that this is all bogus. If they know what you, and I know that there was no Russian collusion, if they know that then they are every bit as guilty in participating this hawks. Participating in this oaks in perpetrating as the investigators are. And about that. I can I don't care what the truth is. I would not have trouble believing. They're either idiots and dunces or they are very much aware. What's going on and engaging in it? Anyway, let's take a brief timeout as we must have. We'll be back in continue. After the.

"No more answers from the president on this one. They would make an exception. He said of Muller does ask that question. The answer is simple. The answer is we don't know. We don't remember. Okay. So the question about whether Giuliani is lying for the president. Now involves Giuliani's tombstone. Can you explain that? Well, he was asked in one of the publications, maybe the New Yorker about about the the notion that, you know, this is his legacy about whether or not he's worried about that. But the way that it potentially came across in that interview was the suggestion that he admitted that he's lying from the for the president. So I asked him if that was what he meant to say. And here was his answer to me. He said I am not lying for the president. The reason I said that everybody's concerned with legacy. I can't figure out why. Because you don't get a chance to whatever you do in life. You don't get a chance to shape the way people see it later. So do what you think is. Right. So that was his his answer to that. He said that mitt he agreed to do this for the president. He knew half the country would be angry at him. He said he's used to that from. The campaign. Remember, he was the only guy to go out after the access Hollywood tape came out that weekend and defendant. Explain it speak for the president. You said they've been friends for decades and decades and somebody has to defend him. I don't know we're calling for is the most problematic thing that Giuliani has said in recent days, but what he says the New York Times claiming to be directly quoting the president about the length of discussions for Moscow tower project. He now says he didn't even say that. Right. Well, yes, I talked about that he disputes that that the president gave that quote, he said he was speaking hypothetically, that's not what he meant. He says he doesn't it? Didn't mean any of these interviews whether on Sunday, Jake or or subsequently tried to explain it. He didn't mean to say anything different than he said a month or two ago, which is that the president doesn't remember exactly when he stopped talking about the Trump Tower Moscow project with Michael Cohen. He thought it was the beginning of twenty sixteen but they left with. Room because he just doesn't remember? All right, then bash. Thank you a lot to get to tonight with chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin USA calmness. Carson powers and form orange c- chief-of-staff, Mike Shiels. So Jeff I mean Rudy Giuliani says he's not lying for the president. But something's going on the something is going on. I think the core issue with Giuliani. Now is that the president has locked himself in with these answers to Muller these written answers, and those answers almost certainly are different. From what the president was saying when he was just candidate Trump during the campaign, especially about the issue of these negotiations with with Moscow. So what I think he's doing is trying to sort of move the president's position closer to the written answers without admitting that the president was lying during the campaign, and that's basically impossible, Mike. I mean Giuliani says the president is not upset about all these contradictions and walk backs should the president be upset by that. The there's lawyers muddying the water so much or is that too just went by design. Well, I mean, he's he's assigned Rudy this job and. You know, we know he's a tough critic of his representatives when they speak because he likes to speak from self, and it's really hard for him to watch somebody else doing this. And and and it's, you know, Rudy Giuliani's job as sort of defense lawyer is to read the jury and the jury is the American public, right? This is a political trial, and they're represent the American public is the Jerry and their representatives will decide this if trial, meaning if there was an impeachment trial on this. And so it looks like as Jeffrey said he's trying to create wiggle room for that public to sort of say, well, it could be in this zone or it could be in this zone, and we're going to find out later, and so my job is to kind of create wiggle room for him. And when he does that it comes across as awkward, and so, you know, the president has the decide how much he he wants to do as a Republican..

Will I have to say I mean, some of the details in this are quite remarkable, including just again to underscore this piece on director Ray and appears his only gripe with the FBI director is the fact that he hasn't been aggressive enough in going after Clinton for this uranium one deal that we've heard so much about again that is the issue that Jon Huber a federal prosecutor the top prosecutor out in Utah has been looking into for some time. And we all kind of wondered kind of how all of that would hash out eventually even at the time some suggested that the fact that Jeff Sessions had appointed him in the first place might have been viewed as political given there hadn't been any real allegation of impropriety other than on French sites. And by the president. Self. So we're going to have to do more porting, obviously on all of this including ro role if any Matt Whitaker, the new acting attorney general had in any of this. And whether he was privy to any of these discussions, will that's a very very serious potential that we need to investigate. Let me just read a couple of more sentences from this article Carris Canellas with us. I want to carry you to weigh in on this. Ultimately, the lawyers warned Mr. Trump could be voted out of office voters believed he had abused his power views presidential power. And then the article says this for decades White House aides have routinely sought to shield presidents from decisions related to criminal cases, where even from talking about them publicly presidential meddling could undermine the legitimacy of prosecutions by attaching political overtones to investigations in which career law enforcement officials followed the evidence and the law, so potentially this is explosive. If in fact, the president would have ordered the Justice department to law. Launch this kind of prosecution that could be seen as an abusive presidential power. That's right. I mean in it's sort of the red line the third rail this political interference in DOJ investigations. And so if there is evidence that the president did assert himself in this that that's a big problem in the department of Justice is supposed to be independence not supposed to be an arm of the president investigate his enemies or his his foes. So that is a that is a real key issue here that, you know, more reporting us to to get to the bottom of is that you know, was there any interference? Did this message ever make it to DOJ into they act on it? I want to bring in our chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin, who's now gone through this article Jeffrey, give us your thoughts because as I've been saying, it's all very potentially explosive. I'm sorry wolf, you're you're you're breaking up. I didn't. I didn't get that. I've I apologize. I could could can you go to. Hey. Here's a little thick. We'll fix your earpiece over there. We'll get back to you. Let me bring in Laura it's also explosive if the president would have gone forward with this order to the Justice department to launch this prosecution of Hillary Clinton and James Komi. That's right. And you know, it's interesting in the article he appears to be saying began don't I have the thority to do this. He's fixated at least on the idea that inferior as the head of the executive branch. Of course, he can make this type of order, but the question is should he and is that a good idea is that the kind of thing that we want and the kind of norms that we wanna be establishing between the White House and the Justice department, and of course, you know, it still has shades of what we've seen from him as Maggie said his public behavior calling on Twitter all the time for Jeff Sessions to investigate Komi in Clinton repeatedly..

"Yes. I believe that there that the FBI to your point is is it should be compelled to do its job in terms of doing the completing their background investigation. And that's not being done Harris's, blaming the White House and Justice department for not giving up direction to the FBI on this matter. Well, but that would take a long time if they were going to do a background check on this particular party. They would have to nail down. You know, try to nail down who was there. Start talking to people interviewing people individually were that were at the party that to start with when and where. Because nobody's sure of that. That'd be difficult which is also a effing impossible. Which is also why it was interesting to me that cavenaugh came out yesterday and said I was not at that party. I thought that was a weird move. He's a lawyer. He knows better than me. But I just thought that was a weird move. I don't remember anything about this. And I was not at that party seems incongruous to me. What did she say? Did she say the town the party was Bethesda? Yeah. I again, that's not a conclusion I would need that explained to me. I could not say with certainty. I was never at a party in a particular town or part of town or anything I no way from way back then not a chain for the record. The Justice department signal that the FBI does not plan on reopening Kavanagh's background check for now noting. It forwarded information about Ford's allegation to the White House consistent with federal guidelines, and I quote, the F this DOJ spokes whole the FBI's role in such matters is to provide information for the use of the decision makers. That was that's the only thing Cavanaugh has said so far that I thought what the only, but again, he's a lawyer he's being coached on this. I'm just surprised and said somebody said you were at a party in one thousand nine hundred eighty five in great bend, Kansas. I'd say I I couldn't say I've never been to a party there. I don't think I have. But I I certainly couldn't swear to it. As far as background checks. Go ABC's chief legal analyst, Dan Abrahams weighed in the FBI is not investigating crime here with the FBI is doing is effectively a background check. And what the Democrats want is that investigation to continue and the issues going to be does that investigation move forward. Do they spend a lot more time on that? Or does it simply become a question of watching him testify again and potentially hurt? I thought the best thing Cavanaugh said so far is she must have me mistaken with somebody else because that is such a believable story..

The molar investigation the president tweeting about it again by the way his press secretary. Says he's not saying that Jeff Sessions has to pull the plug. On the, Muller investigation he's just suggesting that is not all on the up and up in fact bring up the possibility of a conflict of interest for Robert. Mueller, census entire, team, that he hired, for, the rush investigation is filled with Liberal Democrats Dan Abrahams Who's an ABC. Chief legal, analyst dismissed the problem because he says well that's mood because Muller was lifelong quote unquote lifelong Republican I don't know if he was a lifelong Republican. Or, not All I know is was team? Is made up of legal analyst Rachel Hooper former Harris County prosecutor joins us let's, examine this from from strictly a legal standpoint Rachel is there a, potential, conflict of interest at work area, if, you, are investigating. A Republican in everybody on your team is a liberal Democrat I believe their. Ears and, appearance of impropriety here the first. Thing that the Ponant of the president point two, is, the fact that Muller is allegedly a Republican okay well? Let's look at Muller's action one of his first hires a man named Andrew Weisman Weisman on. Election night he was at Hillary Clinton's election night party That really who you want as your. Lead prosecutor on your team what kind of message or you spending so I think the president is correct when he says that there. Isn't a pure of impropriety on bowlers and I hate to say this but DNA should know about this because Dan Abrahams brother-in-law is on Muller's team well That's almost like an. Indictment So so are you one of those people who subscribes to the idea that for whatever reason he doesn't seem to want to do it should Jeff Sessions. Pull the plug on this I think that what Supporters of Donald Trump it any American needs to do is go. Straight to the appointment More that document it's one page it's easily found on the internet guess what Muller's job it's to investigate the Russian government's efforts interfere in our two thousand sixteen election period Then when you see the. Prosecution of Paul Manafort on an. Old case? That was. Previously rejected by the federal prosecutors that has nothing to do with our sixteen election In the world is lower and his team to win So that's. That's what the president. Is talking, about here is right what he's talking about you know this is something that was. News to me yesterday and you just referred to it the fact that this whole Manafort was investigated something, like eight years ago and they all passed on it including Rosenstein Exactly What an incredible situation we're. In, now Paul Manafort case was passed by the federal prosecutors previously rejected. Prosecution and now here we. Are he's walked up during his trial and somehow they're trying to draw some connection between Paul manafort's alleges this deed and our, president and it's This is just about putting the screws. To Paul Manafort isn't it exactly and the judge has called the, prosecutors out on the judge has said all y'all are interested in. Is is trying to make the president look. Bad that's what, you're trying to do here and and hopefully these jurors will see through there I think jurors. Are generally very smart and see what's? Going on and I appreciate the presents for bringing this information to? The, people now this. Is kind of a heady question but. I mean everyone who's an officer of the cord is sworn to uphold the constitution, and to see Justice does this ring of Justice to you this. Whole mess that we've been.

Or is an appointed federal judge appointed. By Barack Obama so there is bias and prejudice. In in in people's hearts but when it's opening obvious like with, Andrew Weisman the pit bull Muller's team who attended Hillary Clinton's election. Night party this just can't be a prosecutor.

About doing this so we're looking for people who share a significant stretches of DNA with the suspect we find them in the database jed match and then we reverse. The, family we reverse engineer the, family tree of, the suspect based on the. Family trees of the people that are sharing DNA with him comedy cases have you been working on and are are continuing to work on, I worked on. About, a, dozen so far but I have many more cases waiting for my attention so I expect that we will see lots. More arrests thanks to genetic genealogy I. Know a lot of families are hoping for that. CC Dan In this case to the. Suspect confessed and you find that a lot of these cases where you're able to use DNA evidence and they can present that to suspect and say look we now have your DNA there's now. New, testing out there that can confirm your our person that leads to a lot more confessions sometimes you don't, even need a. Trial they'll plead guilty etc you know we often talk. About how DNA helps prove people didn't do it also can help prove people didn't. Do it police have to verify the research, and information and sometimes it means. Going through a person's garbage is a problem the court it's actually supreme court case that relates to police going through people's garbage. And in one thousand nine hundred eighty s the supreme court decided that it? Is not a violation of the constitution that, you don't have an expectation of privacy when you put. Your garbage out now if there are particular situations where. If someone's garbage of. Courses in their home or in a closed garage that's the difference Situation but once the expectation of privacy is lost the police are allowed to go, through your garbage Some have concerns saying that innocent people could become suspects do you share. That concern actually genetic genealogy is capable of really eliminating hundreds or even thousands of people from consideration the cases I've been working on. Often have had suspect lists our person of interest lists with hundreds or, thousands of names on them. In genetic genealogy were able to narrow it down to just a handful two or maybe one person, so it's actually helping much less a number of innocent people being investigated for these crimes that's ABC's Robin, Roberts with Dan Abrahams and see Seymour.

"To transform the rule of law and our country during the campaign trump promised to only pick a prolife judges i am putting prolife justices on the court itchy abortion activists are calling it a pivotal moment while abortion rights defenders are saying they are in dire immediate danger the senate should reject on a bipartisan basis any justice who would overturn roe v wade or undermine key healthcare protections democrats insist there should be no confirmation vote at all until after the midterm elections they point to the fact that republicans blocked brock obama's last pick for ten months before the two thousand sixteen presidential election but republican leader mitch mcconnell says there must be no delay republicans are dealing with a razor thin one vote majority in the senate that means they can afford to lose only one that's why you can expect republicans to put intense pressure on three democrats three democrats who voted for neal gorsuch his choice last time around and who are now this year up for reelection it states that trump won big george stephanopoulos and cecilia vega spoke with abc's chief legal analyst dan abrahams san abc supreme court contributor kate shaw looking to answer the question so many are asking after justice kennedy's resignation why now robie wade that's where all the early energy is going to be that's right but let's be clear there's no question that roe v wade could be in jeopardy but that doesn't mean it's going to get overturned everyone's talking about overturned overturned as a practical matter justices liked to show deference to previous opinions meeting it's unusual to say we're simply going to overturn a decision because we now disagree with if it happens on occasion but it's very rare more likely what you see is an opinion effectively get gutted meaning states that want to restrict abortion will increasingly make laws that are more restrictive and more restrictive and then have those laws challenged in the hope that those laws are able to move forward and ineffective would mean that it becomes nearly impossible for women in a number of states to get and you can be sure that whoever president trump nominates is going to do his or her best not to show their hand on roe wade during the confirmation you don't want to admit you know what your position is on any case in the confirmation process the rule is when you're asked about a particular case you say this could come in front of me and as a result i'm night i'd have to see what the facts of the case were but you've got to believe that the president is going to know a lot about any candidate that he considers justice kennedy didn't make from the bench where you surprise you were there we all knew it was a possibility but i don't think anyone in that building really believed he was going to do impart because you know he seemed to send a message with his travel ban separate writing that he had some concerns about some of president trump's conduct and rhetoric he wrote separately to sort of say you need to acting ways that respect constitutional values like equality but in the end you know i think he did want to be replaced by republican president and this was the surest way to see that.

Did you become aware of the Trump Tower meeting stormy Daniels payments, no campaign finance violation. So through lawful. Then the president, he North Korea summit. We now have a day and we have a location. Paradise ignites a difficult thing to watch the floor is unpredictable in his own words. Here, maybe I'll have another five years. Maybe I'll be gone before you hear this. People in events that made headlines when world news this week continues. There's a lot coming at you right now, turmoil tweets, an insane amount of chatter. I'm Brad milkey with ABC news and I'm here to throw you a lifeline. It's a new podcast called start here or are experts give you on the ground access to the biggest stories of the day. We're going to give you some context, some clarity among the chaos, twenty minutes every weekday subscribe now on apple podcast or wherever you get your podcast and start here. What did you know about phone calls that Mr Flynn made with the Russian ambassador? What did you mean in your interview? With Lester Holt about Mr.. Komi in Russia. Those are two of the forty nine questions. Robert Muller's special council wants to ask President Trump in a sit down interview according to a document leaked to the media this week, ABC's congressional correspondent MAry, Bruce on what else is in those questions. The list of nearly fifty probing questions. Special counsel, Robert Muller has for President Trump lines of questioning, Muller shared with Trump's own legal team. The list now published by the New York Times and what the president is now calling a disgraceful leak Russian collusion. Give me a break. Trump insists. Molars list has no questions on collusion, but that's not true. The special counsel has questions about Paul Manafort once the president's campaign chairman according to the times, Muller wants to ask Trump what knowledge did he have any outreach by his campaign, including by Paul Manafort to Russia about potential assistance to the campaign. Muller also wants to ask the president win. Did you become aware of the Trump Tower meeting that infamous sit down Don Jr. Jared, Kushner? Manafort in Russians, they were told had dirt on Hillary Clinton much of Muller's list centers on possible obstruction of Justice by the president. The special counsel wants to know what if I were made to reach out to Trump's fired national security adviser, Michael Flynn about seeking immunity or possible? Pardon. And what did Trump mean when he said this about firing his FBI director, James Komi when I decided to just do it. I said to myself, I said, you know, this rusher thing. Thing with Trump and Russia is a made up story N when Trump told Russian diplomats and this Oval Office meeting that firing Komi had taken the pressure off, what did he mean by that? Another question Muller wants answered, what discussions did the president have regarding terminating the special counsel with the release of those questions also came word that the special counsel has warned President Trump's legal team, that if the president refuses an interview, Muller could issue a subpoena ABC news, chief legal analyst. Dan Abrahams says, this raises the stakes, let's say it works its way all the way through the courts. The supreme court then says, sorry, this is a valid subpoena and the president says, well, I don't think so, and I'm not going to show up. That's when you have the real potential crisis. We use this word constitutional crisis all the time. I think that the only real crisis occurs if you have in the end, a real war between two branches of government were one of saying, you can't tell me what to do the president. However, maintaining he's still willing to sit down with Muller despite what his legal team is telling him. I would love to speak. I would love to nobody wants to speak more than me back against my lawyers because most lorries they never picked another. I would love to say, what is it like to sit down with a special counsel's team former Trump campaign adviser. Michael Caputo recently did so, and he's detailing the experience to ABC news, chief Justice correspondent Pierre, Thomas former Trump political adviser. Michael Caputo helped in the early stages of a campaign from Trump Tower says he won't soon. Forget the grilling. He says, he took from two FBI juice and a prosecutor with a special counsel's team three hours. Plus they weren't pulling any punches at at some points in time. I, it got kind of frightening. Caputo says the agents knew so much about his life. It scared him. They know everything here. They know more about what I did in two thousand sixteen than I do, but will the investigators after they're talking about the timing of some things that happened at the campaign and at the convention. I think they're completely focused on collusion. With Russia. According to Caputo, there was a lot of focus on the hack of the DNC by Russian operative known as goussev for and WikiLeaks, which published stolen information. This is his stark assessment on whether Muller's anywhere near done, investigating possible collusion. I'm hoping this end soon, but it sounds to me like they have more dating to do today. Give you any sense that they have anything. I believe that they, they think they're onto something what that is. I don't know. They're not messing around. Caputo, says investigators Pepperdine with questions about his friends. The president's personal attorney, Michael Cohen. Paul Manafort who's been indicted on money laundering charges. The president's longtime friend and advisor, Roger stone. The one thing he says, surprised him from the interview. It was remarkable to me that the president was brought up. Nobody with last name Trump came up at all. Speaking of the president's legal team, there were major shakeups yet again this week with top White House lawyer, tie Cobb telling ABC news. Be leaving having, you know, stay longer than I intended, but believing that the end of this month ABC's chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl spoke with Cobb about his departure from the president's team out tie Cobb, the lead White House lawyer dealing with the special counsel replaced by Amit flood who was one of President Clinton's impeachment lawyers Cobb tells me he was ready to leave almost everything that I was brought on to do as Ben accomplished comet employed a strategy of patients with Muller cooperation. Definitely. What is the right move? And and definitely the path that would lead to the quickest resolution. But it was President Trump's newest lawyer, former mayor, Rudy Giuliani who created shockwaves this week when he told FOX's Sean Hannity, that money was not campaign money. Sorry, I'm giving you a fact now that you don't know, it's not campaign money, no campaign finance violation. So they've funneled through law firm. Frontal through over and the president. It. I didn't know Giuliani acknowledging for the first time that the president repaid that one hundred thirty thousand dollars to his personal attorney. Michael Kohn ABC's giancarl with a new explanation from the White House last month. The president, flatly denied knowing anything about the hush money Cohen claimed he paid Daniels out of his own pocket.

Trump's a 'subject' and not a 'target' of the Mueller probe? The White House shouldn't celebrate yet

"China hits back at the US on tariffs and stocks. Take a nosedive plus Robert Muller may not see the president as a target and his Russia probe, but sources say he is still more than a witness and the White House tries to clarify Trump's strategy on Syria. This is the state of American night. We tend to get along with China, but we have to do something very substantial about the trade deficit, the White House's show in leadership here we don't have fair trade with China. China may be targeting the demographic that has voted for the current administration. It is going to the country and specifically where the president has done. Well, he campaigned on this all those good farmers in the mid west who voted for Donald Trump and now we're getting hammered. Sorry. Hello, I'm John Avalon live in New York, and this is the state of America tonight. Not for man who loves to take credit when stock surge. The past few weeks have been pretty brutal for President Trump. The Dow is battling back from a sharp decline after China, retaliated against recent US, tariffs and fears of trade war intensified. China slapping a twenty five percent tariff on US goods, including soybeans, planes cars and chemicals. But just yesterday, the president said, ties between the two countries are strong. Relationship is very good with China, and we intend to keep it that way. But we have to do something to seriously relieve that trade deficit. We can't have five hundred billion dollar a year trade deficit, and just this morning, the president pushed back on any concerns declaring that the US is not in a trade war with China, but a check of his Twitter feed shows that even if it were president wouldn't be too worried. Here's what he wrote in early March quote, one country USA is losing many billions of dollars on trade with virtually every country does business with trade wars are good and easy to win. Well, time will tell if the president's business acumen proves right on that one, but there's another critical foreign policy issue that's top of mind for the White House. Today I'm talking about Syria. Remember when president said this last week. We're not going to hell out of ISIS. We'll become an at Assyria like very soon let the other people take care of it. Now. Now that unexpected announcement stunned members of Trump's staff who were left scrambling to figure out his strategy. Well, today we all got a little clarity. A senior administration official says, President Trump will keep troops in Syria for the short term, but totals national security team. He wants them to leave soon. And that comes after top commanders told Trump that the battle against ISIS has not yet been one at least one former army. General says, the number of troops could actually increase in the short run. You might see a slight uptick too because that's what general Bootle has asked for along with General Thomas, they know that the toughest part of the fight is after the fights over when you're trying to stabilize the communities. I think many people have been recommending that to the president. Now to subject the president has been surprisingly silent on today, at least on social media. And that's the Russia probe President. Trump's lawyers have been told that he is not a target and brought Miller special counsel investigation. That's according to sources familiar with recent conversations. But those sources also say the president is viewed as more than a witness, meaning that the president could be the subject of an investigation. And that's why it CNN's chief legal analyst says that Trump shouldn't be breaking out the champagne just yet. Trump is a subject and I don't think that's particularly good news for him. I mean, it's a big deal to be under criminal investigation by the FBI, particularly if you're president of the United States being a subject is a very serious thing. That means the prosecutors are determining whether to file charges against you. Got that. Well, here's how prominent Republican congressman Trey Goudy a former federal prosecutor summed up the crucial differences. I don't think those terms target versus subject. The only word that matters to me that criminal Justice system is defend. One witness can take you from being a subject to a target and and unless and until you've interviewed everyone and looked at everything, no one has been implicated, and no one has been exculpated who went on to say that when it comes to Moore's desire to speak one on one with the President. Mr Trump should comply. I would tell you if you did not rob the Bank, there's no reason for you not to sit down and talk to the FBI about the Bank robbery. If you have nothing to hide, sit down assuming a fair prosecutor, a fair prosecutor, and I think more is sit down and tell him what you know. Sage advice. Well, now for more on that roller coaster ride for stocks, I'm joined by CNN money editor at large and host of quest means business. Richard quest, Richard, the markets are clearly rattled, but they are off their lows for the session. Is that a sign that investors think cooler heads will prevail and that a potential trade war between China and the US might be avoided? No, no. That's a toll the situation. I think the markets are off the lows because they probably just thought it was over done this morning. And maybe when you look at the total situation in might not be as bleak as people thought, but anybody who, for one second believes that if these tariffs come into effect in sixty days time and the monkey wouldn't fall out of bed is deluding themselves. The reality is that the market is hoping praying that these tariffs don't come into effect. The Boeing is still being beaten up by two percent. Caterpillar has been beaten up as well. You've still got the president attacking Amazon. You've got three, I'm shares all down and you have a situation whereby the president tweets that it's not a war because they've already lost. But he has to send his new economic advisor chairman of economic council, Larry cudlow. He has to send him out to modify them all kids. I'm glad you mentioned that. I'm glad you mentioned because we've got a clip of Mr. Kudlow that I'd like to play for folks and get your reaction because he says, it's all big, misunderstand it. I would take the president search -ly on this tariff issue. They're carrots and sticks, but he is alternately free trader said that too. Publicly. So he wants to solve this about pain. He is ultimately free trader. This is just a bit gamesmanship. Why can't we get that Richard. We call get because there's always the possibility of not happening. If John, if this is all a massive negotiation strategy that's being done in the full glass of public and then so be it, then we will all find out in three weeks, full weeks, five weeks time that that sold at walls and it's. Well rally back up again. However, if this turns out to be an accident waiting to happen, then you've got, you've got to be ready for that. And that's what gets you can't play with dynamite on simply say, well, we didn't really expect it to blow up in faces. There is always the risk that the other side does something unpredictable which they haven't by the way the other side. So fall China has been absolutely predictable how moderate in its response. The reality is if the administration in Washington that now has to say what its policy is a, what it will do next, if John on this, if they manage to take contain it to the sanctions and tariffs announce. So everything's fair enough. But if we still getting into mine's bigger than y'all's than when teachable sage advice about not playing from economic dynamite from Richard quest. Thank you. My friend. We'll see what happens. Now when the state of America returns, we're gonna be talking trade wars and how China's proposed tariffs just might hit President Trump's face the hardest stay with. The
