"President Trump is acknowledging that he downplayed the impact of the deadly Corona virus earlier this year, telling reporters on Wednesday cannot show A sense of panic or you're gonna have bigger problems than you ever had before ABC News chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl. It's all on tape President Trump bluntly acknowledging the Bob Woodward he fully understood the deadly threat posed by Corona virus and that he was misleading the American public about it.

At Corona Virus quote will be the biggest national security threat you face in your presidency. So Biden's reaction memory said he wasn't by the intelligence community. How bad it wass.

President Trump doesn't dispute downplaying COVID in order to reduce 'panic'
"There are a few games for every president. One of those games is that at some point, Bob Woodward will write a book about you. While you're in office, the Democratic National Committee is trying to solve this prime minister. Began before dawn Saturday when five intruders were captured by police inside the offices of the committee in Washington. By Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein broke the Watergate story since then Woodward has done his thing where he talks to literally everybody can at the White House and writes up the narrative that emerges to do that he often talks to sources on deep background that means names aren't used not even their direct quotes. The reason I bring this up is don't talk to him. Someone else will and the best way to get your version of the story out there is to give him a call. I. That is how he managed to get interviews over the. Last several months we begin tonight with those bombshell recordings. We yesterday we finally learned what is in Bob Woodward's latest book about President Trump. There were lots of revelations in the Washington Post report, but the biggest was the claim that the president intentionally misled Americans about how bad the novel Corona virus was at a critical moment and this admission do not come from a bunch of unnamed sources it came from President trump himself. Let's ABC's chief White House correspondent Jonathan, Karl John We've now learned the president did a ton of on record interviews with Bob Woodward. What did he tell him? Well, he did eighteen interviews with Woodward Woodward tape them, and now we we hear the audio here the President's voice in this headline on the virus, which is you see the president's progression slee we only have five people hopefully everything's GonNa be great. They have somewhat of a problem, but hopefully, it's all going to be great but we're working. With China just so you know and other countries very very closely. So it doesn't get out of hand February seventh interview. So this is really we're starting to grasp the the severity of the pandemic overseas, not necessarily here in the United States yet the president tells Woodward quite candidly that this is really bad. It goes through Air Bob that's always tougher than the touch. You don't have to touch things right. But the air, you just breathe the air that's how it's passed. This is more deadly than the flu more deadly than even the most strenuous flus. So. The president is acknowledging on February seventh to Bob Woodward that this is a really dangerous threat. And in and by the way. The virus fast forward that working hard looks like by April and theory when it gets a little warmer. Miraculously goes away. That's true. We know what the president was saying publicly was largely downplaying the threat. This is a flu. This is like a flu within a couple of days is going to be down close to zero. Now it's turning out not just all people. Today and yesterday. Some startling facts came out. It's not just old all. Were asked him about that in a in a subsequent interview in the middle of March, and the president quite candidly says that he likes to. Downplay the threat basically because he doesn't want to get people to work up, I, wanted to. Play it down I like laying it down. Because I don't want to create panic. And you were sitting in the White House briefing room waiting for the press secretary as this was all dropping yesterday, right like Woodward's audio recordings playing on CNN's. What was the response from the White House? Well, this is an extraordinary story of Woodward and scientist Woodward's reportings. We often get in his books. There's actual tapes of the President's Voice essentially acknowledging that he had been misleading the American public I mean. This is this is there other details of the book that were also you know embarrassing so clearly, a little bit of damage control in real time is going on in the white? House the. Breathing was pushed back by fifteen minutes than another fifteen minutes than another fifteen minutes and eventually Kelly Mac, in any of the press secretary comes out. So this president does what leaders do good leaders it stay calm and resolute at a time when you faced an insurmountable challenge, that's what this president is not that the president lied to the American College about the threat posed by the president has never lied to the American public on Cova actually say. That the president. Did Not downplay the coronavirus threat never downplayed the virus. Once again, the president expressed calm. The president was serious about this when Democrats were pursuing their sham and. Hear the president's. Own Voice telling Bob Woodward. Always play it down I still like playing down likes to play it down because he doesn't want to create a panic and then after macanese briefing, the president came out made an announcement on related about his potential judicial nominees. And he was asked about this and said you know so did you mislead the public well I think if you said in order to reduce panic perhaps that sell fact is a cheerleader for this country I love our country and I don't want people to be frightened I don't want to create panic as you say, and certainly I'm not going to drive. This country or the world into a frenzy, and he acknowledges right there right there what he said on the tape to Woodward yes. He he does downplaying worried about creating panic. Well. So what is the justification of that though John Jonkers? I didn't WANNA start a panic but on the other hand, if somebody hears, you say this is no worse than a flu and they act like that and then they get the coronavirus and have horrible health from vacations I mean, what do you say to that the White House? It's a tough one because this is a president the. Leadership and not creating a panic isn't about like lying to
Biden says Trump downplaying coronavirus threat was 'almost criminal'
"We begin tonight with those bombshell recordings president trump giving journalist Bob Woodward, eighteen interviews, and during those interviews, the president admits to downplaying the coronavirus in the US early on telling. Woodward. He knew the virus was deadlier than the flu saying privately, it goes through the air. That's. How it's passed, the president telling Woodward an early February that the virus would be deadlier than the flu but weeks later, his words in public telling the American people that the virus was like the flu it was in March the president talks about the toll with Woodward, not just on older Americans but revealing its quote young people to plenty of young people. During interviews president trump admits to intentionally misleading the American public because he didn't want to cause a panic. Tonight how the president is now explaining those comments how different they were in public versus private at his opponent Joe Biden's response to ABC's chief White. House. Correspondent Jonathan Karl leading US off. It's all on tape president trump bluntly acknowledging the Bob Woodward he fully understood the deadly threat posed by corona virus and that he was misleading the American public about it in his book rage Woodward writes that National Security Adviser Robert O'Brien. Told President Trump on January twenty eighth that Corona virus quote will be the biggest national security threat facing your presidency ten days. Later, Woodward interviewed the president and they spoke about the virus. Here's an excerpt from the audiotape obtained by CNN breathe the air that's how it's. passed. And so that's a very tricky one. That's a very delicate one It's also more deadly than your. You Know Your even your strenuous lose for more deadly. This is five per you know this is five percent versus one percent less than one percent you know. So this is deadly stuff but just three weeks after that the president told the American people krona virus is like the flu directly contradicting what he told Woodward. This is a flu. This is like a flu within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero. That's a pretty good job we've done. You may ask about the coronavirus which is. Very well under control in our country in another interview in March, the president candidly acknowledged to Woodward he wasn't being upfront with the American people. Starting out, it's not just old people, which is today and yesterday. Some startling facts came out. It's not just old old exactly able to plenty of young people. It's clear just from what's in the public record that you went through a pivot this to Oh my God the gravity is almost inexplicable unexplainable I think bob? Really. To be honest with year I want you I wanted to I wanted to always play it down I still like playing down. Yes. Because I don't want to create a panic and the very next week the president said this America will again. And soon be open for business. very soon a lot sooner than. Three or four months at somebody was suggesting. Lot sooner we cannot let the cure be worse than the problem itself. The president today was asked directly. If he was misleading the public in order to prevent a panic and he acknowledged again, he had been well I. Think if you said in order to reduce panicked perhaps it. So the fact is a cheerleader for this country I love country campaigning in Michigan today Joe Biden who has made the president's handling of krona virus a centerpiece of his campaign called the president's comments to Woodward, a disgrace he knew and purposely played it down worse. He lied to the American people he knowingly and willingly lied about the threat posed to the country for months he knew how dangerous it was. All this deadly disease ripped through our nation he failed to do his job on purpose. Was a life and death betrayal of the American people. And to let's bring in Giancarl, with us, tonight in the white. House was pressed on this today really in a question that many folks at home are likely asking tonight why? Why would the president offer Woodward such a detailed account of the dangers of the coronavirus yet deliver a different message to the American people didn't he know that talking with journalists that this would ultimately reported? Well David. It's extraordinary. The president did eighteen separate interviews with Bob Woodward over the course of several months as he was working on this book his National Security Adviser just a short while ago said this was the president's decision to do those interviews and that he was quote willing to go into the lions ring with Bob Woodward but I can tell you I think another factor here is that when Woodward wrote his last book. The president was upset that his staff turndown Woodward's request to get an interview with him He believes that he can talk himself out of anything and if you could talk enough to Bob Woodward's, he would have a positive portrayal in his book
Trump Vows to Issue Executive Orders if Coronavirus Relief Talks Collapse
"Breaking news on the economic front the White House and Democrats say talks of the economic stimulus package they have hit a wall president trump is threatening to take executive action on his own. Let's get details on that from our chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta. Americans they are in desperate economic pain right now but stimulus talks seem to be going nowhere right now what's the latest? Well, that's right. Wolf with negotiations falling apart over Corona Virus Relief Bill White House officials say president trump is now expected to take some kind of executive action to provide financial support to Americans who are struggling to find work during this pandemic the executive orders are likely to include some kind of effort to provide enhanced unemployment benefits as well as some kind of. Action on suspending evictions from rental homes. There may be some other proposals in the mix, and in the meantime, we should point out the president just hinted at the path ahead in the last hour tweeting, we're going a different way that tweet coming from the president in just the last hour, and in the meantime administration officials are throwing cold water on the president's gold having corona virus vaccine ready by election day one senior administration official told me earlier today that timeline is highly unlikely. President trump's claim that a corona virus vaccine could be ready by election day is receiving an injection of reality as top administration health officials are saying, don't bet on it. Then November third. Oh I. Think I think in some cases. Yes. Possible before. But right around that time, a senior administration official told CNN that timeline is just not realistic saying it's quote metaphysically possible but highly unlikely and Corona Virus Taskforce Dr Anthony Fauci said. May Have to wait until November or December just to find out of a vaccine really works adding maybe we'll get an answer as early as October but I doubt it trying to put a finer prediction on the timetable right now I don't think any of us have enough information yet to know how that's going to shake out. The pandemic Bennett economy recovered somewhat in July with the unemployment rate falling to just above ten percent with one point eight million jobs added even with so many Americans still out of work congressional Democrats and White House officials have been at odds all week over Corona Virus Relief Bill with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, pointing the finger at top aides to the president. Now, that's been in the White House when the president's land that table and walked out that's really what Mr. Meadows. Did I on the table can't shoot staff Mark Meadows Jabbing right back I think for those that are suffering they. They should be asking the Democrats in the House and the Senate why why have you failed to meet the needs that we have so rightly expressed without a deal the White House is signaling Mr Trump will take executive action that legal drafting is complete. We've had this intense discussions about this. In the last several days, I don't WanNa make predictions. Democrats are also keeping an eye on election day accusing the administration of making changes to the nation's postal system that could slow down mayland balloting in a letter, the Postal Service Inspector General, a group of Democratic senators wrote the changes appear to pose a potential threat to mail in ballots and the twenty twenty general election President Likes Mail in voting in Florida but not another states like Nevada Florida's got a great Republican governor and it had a great Republican. Got Run to scientists Rick Scott, the president is seizing on comments made by Joe Biden, you seem to say African Americans are less diverse and their political views Latino voters unlike the African American community notable exceptions. The Latino community is incredibly diverse community. With, incredibly different attitudes about different things Biden try to clean that up tweeting in no way. Did I mean to suggest the African American community is a monolith not by identity not on issues not at all Mr Trump, tweeted biden is no longer worthy of the black vote I don't know what's going on with them, but it was very insulting. The president's attack on Biden are tricky for Mr Trump, who has a long track record of racially offensive behavior including sharing this video, featuring a supporter shouting white power. Now the US intelligence community issued a startling statement on election security today as the US closing in on the fall campaign. In that statement intelligence officials warn Russia is trying to damage from where Vice President Joe Biden. His chances to win the white. House the statement also from the intelligence community says, she prefers that president trump fail in his bid for a second term. These warnings from intelligence officials come at a critical time for American voters who were largely unaware that. The Russians were interfering with the election for years ago this time the voters know all too. Well, what could

Norah ODonnell, anchor of the CBS Evening News
"Today O'Donnell joins us on skin from the couch. She is the anchor and managing editor of the CBS Evening News, making her the third woman ever to so anger, a network evening broadcasts before taking the helm of the evening news. She was the CO host of CBS this morning for seven years norad. Thank you for joining us welcome skin from the couch. Thank you for having me, so we're GONNA. Start off with Skim your resume for us. Will I went to Georgetown University I was Law Sophy Major? I was interested in a lot of different things in college so I had internships at always worked and worked at a law firm I. worked at the World Bank, and and then I injured ABC News and I think you know journalism really was what was the right fit for me? Just a deep curiosity about the news, deep curiosity about world events and people have to graduating from college I got a job at National Journal on a publication, a called the hotline, which was the original kind of aggregate her of news before the Huffington. Post and others got into the business of aggregating news. Even like you guys in some way, remember it well, and that also was like a crash course in politics, too, because we would. Sum Up every Senate and House race across the country, all the polling who all the key consultants were, so that really was a great crash course in politics, and then I got hired at NBC and MSNBC when I was twenty five years old to be you know it was one of the youngest correspondents at NBC history, and had a great career at NBC and had three kids, and then we all work on intelligent news underwear like personal services contracts. All of us have anywhere from two to five year contracts. In, so you know in each of those contracts, come up! You have an opportunity to reevaluate your next step and CBS came to me with an incredible offer to be. The chief White House correspondent for Obama's last term, and to be the substitute anchor for face, the nation, and I had always been ambitious about wanting to anchor a Sunday broadcast I love politics, and so to be able to substitute for the legendary Bob Schieffer at thought. This is really an an excellent opportunity, so. and. CBS. News and then Kinda. The rest is history should I keep going? No, that was perfect so something you definitely don't know I. and turned at MVP when I was nineteen in the specials unit, and I was like my first week on the internships. Let's say day two or three in you opt into the office. And you're the first professional famous news anchor I ever seen in person and I literally I stopped breathing I was so excited all I wanted to do is to be a news anchor at the time, and I was so nervous, and when you walked out of the room I asked one of the producers. What is she liked you work with her I will never. Never forget their like she's the best of the best, and I was like what makes her so good. And they said that she always does her homework and I think about that a lot and I'm curious. What is something that you your fans and people like us your big fans? What does the thing that we don't know about you that we can't Google? What I wasn't as good about doing my homework in college. And I did just fine at Georgetown. But I do I think certainly a professional that is dry. Always did know my homework because I do believe that preparation builds confidence and confidence build success, and so for me, you know certainly early on my career as a young correspondent with so many famous people at NBC legendary careers. My confidence wasn't a tie, and so I thought how can I be the smartest person in the room and no more than anybody else and. You know I just really did my homework. I really worked really hard to make sure I knew everything. The thing that people may not know about me. You Know I. Guess would be that I'm from a military family. You know I mean that certainly is my resume, but it's the one thing I mentioned because you know I remember in covering certainly the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq after nine eleven, a lot of people would say on television and Mike Barnicle on morning. Joe would say this a lot that Oh, no less than one percent of people have someone in the military who didn't understand these wars, but I grew up in the military. My father was drafted during the Vietnam War. State for thirty years I lived overseas and so I really do have a deep appreciation for those who serve my sister-in-law surgeon in the army and so I do have a really keen sense of the sacrifice that many people go through, and I do in some ways I almost wish that it was mandatory almost like in Israel that we had to sir because. I think you know certainly the discipline that they have is unlike anything I've seen those who sir. Let's actually start with that because I think it's fascinating talking about how you grew up and living overseas. How did this love of news and growing up with that military background kind of come together for you? You know I think one of the. First crystallized for me in some ways when Elena, Nachman Ost, who is still the vice president of talent at NBC? News said to me when I met her. When I was twenty five years old, and she said you know we like hiring correspondents who have from a military background, because they're very flexible and adaptable. They don't complain about being sent to different cities or states or around. Around the world they can talk to anybody because they've sort of been put in that situation where they have to be totally adaptable. Moment's notice

Fauci Says US Death Toll Is Likely Higher
"The Corona Virus death-toll here in the United States is down more than eighty. Three thousand people almost one point four million cases. Globally there are no more than four point three million cases and almost three hundred thousand deaths but tonight sources telling CNN that the trump administration that serious senior trump administration officials are questioning the accuracy of the death toll and whether the number is actually being inflated just yesterday on the other hand Dr Anthony Fauci told US lawmakers.

Dr Anthony Found. She who said deaths are likely being undercounted as some residents and hard hit New York died at home and we're never counted as cove in one thousand nine fatalities so direct. Answer to your question. I think you are correct at the number is likely higher. I don't know exactly. What was that tire? But almost certainly is higher. The president suggested. New York's number of dead was too high last month. I see this morning. Where New York edit three thousand deaths because they died and then now saying rather than it was a heart attack? They're saying it was a heart attack caused by this trump allies on Fox News zeroed in on found she. As an obstacle to reopening the country blasting the doctors cautious approach to the pandemic.

As a wise, man, once said, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, not their own fax words have power and words have consequences. Joe and I are honored to be joined today by award winning author and chief White House correspondent for the New York Times. Peter Baker Peter is covered four presidents, as a reporter, President Trump and Obama for the New York Times, and George W Bush, and Bill Clinton for the Washington Post, he is also the author of five books, including Obama, the call of history, days of fire Bush and Cheney in the White House and inside the impeachment and trial of William Jefferson Clinton, Peter Baker, welcome to words matter extra for sure. Joe since you and Peter have history together. The White House press room will let you lead off today is so long turn the tables on here. This is this is going to be hard this bad. I wanna talk about your book, you wrote if not the but one of the most definitive books on the Obama presidency in the upside down world of Donald Trump, he had to go back at it and. Kind of writing new version of it based on what happened after you know, in the last year. I'm most interested in both contemporaneous. We and then looking back how they handled Russia, and how they handled the election. And I think interference and meddling. He's talking about words, mattering, if we'd called it, something more sinister. Yeah. The beginning. I think that's this might have turned out different way. But let's call it interference right? Yeah. No, that's look. That's the thing about presents. Right. They look different year after they leave office in two years, and five years, ten years, and we're constantly reevaluating them President Clinton your president. Look different in two thousand one he look different two thousand eight two thousand sixteen every time you know they were still political arena, but we were reevaluating his presidency and his place in history. And that's certainly true. I think for President Obama's heart. Not look at President Obama through the prism of President Trump. They probably both hate that, but they are linked together in some ways, I think in history because they're so opposite there. So. So much the, the all Star Trek episode, where you had the, the two aliens who are the exact opposites of whatever and Trump has made so much of his tenure about undoing the Obama presidency that you can't evaluate that ministration without seeing what follows, so I think that that was when we used to go back and do the book and the first version with a picture book coffee table book. So the text let's face it. Nobody reads the text of picture book, that's not the point. That's not why you buy it. So we took the taxed and then blew it out and doubled. It almost in Incisa it like a regular book for a new audience. I wanted to ask about the how the twenty sixteen election impacted President Obama's relationship with secretary Clinton because in the book and you talk about that election night, and how Odom a handle debt and some of the conversations he had with secretary Clinton in the wake of the election. And, and on that evening. And you say that Obama blamed Clinton who quote brought many of her troubles on herself and ran a quote scripted Solis campaign. Can you talk a bit about how the election impacted the relationship between Obama Clinton? I think the prisoner is people were understandably perhaps a little defensive about what happened in the election was this, their fault in some way, both because of the Russia thing, did they do enough on Russia. And then largely, you know, if your presidency is successful, why would it lead to something like Donald Trump? If you Brock Obama, it's a natural question to ask, and I think that they look that it's a way to second. You guys are putting the finger us. But how about the candidates she's the one who was out there in, in Las we were on the ballot and you know, it was kind of a corporate campaign, that Hillary Clinton ran in some ways, they pull tested or focused tests. I think something like eighty five slogans before ending up with, you know, stronger together. And I think that it's not surprising to see a president who's frustrated by the outcome of election expressing that about the candidate. Again, Bill Clinton Al Gore, had this out in the final days of of their presence. He after gore loss and Clinton thought he squandered, what was a pretty good record. So I don't know. That it's personal. I don't think that there's any animosity there. But I think that there are certain defensiveness on the part of, of the people who were leaving the White House about why it was their party lost. Yeah. It's, it's interesting that you bring up Clinton and gore because I think there's two different dynamics, but with the same result, I mean, I think Bill Clinton thinks that Al Gore ran away from him and his record and that hurt him. It's one of these things where in both of these cases, you can argue because it was so close, you can put any one variable. That say boy Bill Clinton had been in Florida that last weekend, he certainly would have gotten seven hundred more votes. Or. But with Hillary Clinton, I think she was running in some ways as I'm the third term there were differences. She, you know, distance herself from TPP, which was a political decision. I, I don't think that helped her much, but maybe the knock you waited her on some of the trade stuff. But how much do you think Obama still ruminates this on Hilary's failure? I know that a lot of his staff everything you row ranked true from what I've heard from the staff, Iowa obviously not talk to President Obama about it. It didn't come up at the closing didn't come up with the closing. Thank you. Thank you for that. We'll do a special show on that next week. Chose real estate. The latest the help. Start asking much harder. Question this keeps up, but do you think this is something that you know, should pick them off for a week? And then you've done, or is he caught in the, which I think Clinton was for President Clinton furrow for a while. The real you know, kind of what I'd call political depression of look what they've done to what I felt. Yeah. It's a great question and hard and Harmon answer. Because unlike President Clinton, I don't think President Obama shares a lot of his internal life with even with people who are close to him and his staff. There are moments which I thought was interesting. We learned about in the days after the election when he talked with Ben Rhodes and others and tried to sort of put this in history. Right. How does this happen in effect? And he seemed to go through as they describe any way, kind of multiple stages of grief right, anger denial and I don't know if we got to acceptance or not sometimes, I think I came along twenty years too early said at one point did we push too hard? I don't hear him from his aides description anyway wonder why. He dating wrong and presence often don't, I'm not sure he says during regrets doing healthcare, or regrets, you know, his policy on Syria or the Iran deal, or something like that. I think it's natural for him to smart. Guys, awful guy to try to understand why it is that America would pick not once but twice the first African American president of the Asli progressive leader and then turn so radically to the other side, some not, not somebody who's different ideologically. That's kind of normal after eight years, but somebody who literally denied President Obama's right to have the job. The whole birther conspiracy theory that Trump was out there promoting. And so, I think I think troubles in my I think, I think it troubles because it's hard not to look at that and say, I did all this. I worked so hard. We, we made so much progress and to watch sort of unravel has to be painful, but in public anyway, and even I think, in private with his aides he tries to zen approach this, too shall pass histories eggs, and then zags we're in Zagreb. Now but will zig back. But I'm looking forward to his book, which we're still waiting for right? Because you coughed. I'm taking the next question, it'd be cough again. You have to leave fell. Many real so many, there's new there's there's new rule show. I like timely humor. It doesn't have to be funny, but it's timely on Obama. The thing that really intrigues me and I wish you know, there were certain you know, this better or at least as well as I do that there were days that I wish Bill Clinton didn't share, much of his, his inner thoughts of people around him who they would share them with you. But the, the whole birther thing is the thing that intrigues me because it really does go to the woods Chitimia of Obama as a leader in essay, historical figure in both the United States in the world. I'd love to figure out how far into your head. He got, you know, through him and around him on that particular got into I think Trump got into his head, I do, and he's very careful about not trying to characterize at least publicly opposition to him. As race based not that you denied it. But he just didn't want that to be the defining characterization of his presence. He didn't want to be the first black president. He wanted to be the first president who happened to be black. Right. He didn't want to be president of black America. You want to be president of all America, it diminishes him if he's defined entirely by race. And therefore, I think he thought it diminished him as well if he complained about the opposition to him being based on race, although obviously part of it was, but in private. And again, we get this through through Ben Rhodes who I thought provide a window in which we had not seen before we had a conversation with president bowel points. What why do you think people are so strongly opposed you? He says, because I think my election, drove some white people crazy. And he'd never said that in public. It was interesting to hear him say that in private. He in fact, does, of course, not surprisingly see some of the option particularly President Trump as based on race. And the birther thing clearly gone is my one day. He's back at home in Chicago during his presidency is rummaging through boxes, and the adequate, Ernie finds a sort of. Hospital your baby born Khanna, like handout, certificates that they give a new mom from Hawaii when his when he was born and he brought it back to the White House when he gets back to wash a see what I got here guys. Look what I found. And of course, didn't prove anything, really, it's not a legal document. But it led him to say let's get the actual long form verse to go and put it out there and Joe power..

"Chief White House correspondent Jonathan. Karl congresswoman Alexandria Cossio. Cortes of New York is here for her first Sunday show interview since taking office congressman welcome to this week. Thank you for joining us, Chris. Thank you for having me. So what you said, you watch that whole interview play out. Does this change the calculus on impeachment? I think every day that passes the pressure to impeach growth. And I think that it's justifiable, I think the evidence continues to come in, and I believe that with the president now saying that he is willing to break the law to win reelection. That, that goes that transcends partisanship. It transcends party lines. And this is now about the rule of law in the United States of America. There's a new poll out this morning and BBC news that shows significant growth in democratic support for impeachment and the survey was done before Georgia's interview Pelosi though speaker Pelosi is really held her line on this house that flying with progressives. I think for me this question has should not be about polls. It should not be about elections. I think that, that impeachment is, is incredibly serious. And this is about the presence in evidence at the president may have committed a crime in this case more than one. And so, I believe that, that our decision on impeachments should be based in our constitutional responsibilities and duties, and not in elections or polling that being said with the increase in polls, I think the American people are now recognizing. In, in a much broader scale the depth and the severity of the misconduct coming out of the White House and a demand to protect our institutions and protect the rule of law in the United States, and at least opening an inquiry into into possible misconduct. So how real is that progressive frustration that speaker Pelosi said, at least so far, she seems to be really holding the line that she's not ready to do that. I think it's quite real. I believe that there is a very real. Animus and desire to make sure that we are that, that we are holding this president to account what have you told her about this? Well, you know, I think we come together as a caucus, and we have these conversations and those as, as this bigger likes to say they are family conversations. There are ones that are held in confidence. But I do believe that. That this is truly again. And I've said this publicly said it privately, I've said it when we subpoenaed, the attorney general and secretary Ross today on the census. I mean this week on the census that this is about the rule of law, and we have to make sure that we that we are holding this president account is holding government to account forty one freshman Democrats that are in seats that were held by Republicans. And from everything I've seen virtually all of them. These are your majority makers all of them oppose moving forward with impeachment. I, I would disagree with that assessment. I think that some of these dynamics are changing, I would never, I would very much not say, all of them are opposed to impeachment. I think many of them are extraordinarily concerned about the misconduct coming out, and I I it really you have to look at the process. There is opening an impeachment inquiry. There's the impeachment voted self ROY there may be some that are out on the impeachment vote itself. But I think that there is a growing sentiment. Even among many of these frontliners has we call them swing district. Democrats think we should at least open an inquiry and look into the abundance of evidence, ten counts of -struction of Justice four with rock, solid evidence. We have violations of the emoluments clause, we need to at least open an inquiry so that we can look at what is going on. And that is what opening an impeachment inquiry means, isn't there a risk, and I take your point about not wanting to do this for politics, politics, very real here. If even if. If you open the inquiry, there's a vote, the president is impeached, obviously would still have to be convicted in the in the Senate with a supermajority that's not going to happen. Right. So, don't you risk handing him a political victory here? So there's a couple of scenarios here one, there's always the possibility that you open impeachment inquiry, and it does not result in a referral that we opened the inquiry victory. Look at everything, though, I think that this is about us doing our jobs. And if we're talking about what's going to be victory for Trump and what's not gonna be victory for Trump. Then we are politicizing and we are tainting this process, which should again should be removed from politics that being said, Lindsey Graham himself, set, a very low bar for impeachment in nineteen ninety eight nine in the late nineties with the impeachment of Bill Clinton. That impeachment did not result in a vote by the Senate. But I think for us what we need to really realize. Are we doing our job as a member? Of the house, and the Senate has their entire responsibility. Mitch McConnell has over one hundred bills. He hasn't brought election security to his feet. And let's not forget that he's involved in this mess to his, his wife. Transportation secretary Elaine Chao just was revealed by the New York Times for having a whole web of potential conflict of interest, and as it relates to bringing projects to Kentucky as well. I mean, there's a whole other separate set of issues in the Senate. But I think we need to be concerned with our job in the house. They will be right back after this from our ABC stations. This is the sound of.

"Major Garrett who's the CBS news chief White House correspondent as a new book out called Mr. Trump's wild ride that thrills the chills the streams and occasional blackouts next door neighbor presidency and major Garrett welcome. I think for the first time to the Bill Cunningham show, a major how are you? Great to be with you Bill. Thanks for having me. Let's go back to election night. Maybe a day or two before on election day itself. The Trump clan you come through. Of course, I'm headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, which is a key state. So I had the Trump plan on a regular basis on election day itself. It was like two oh five. Donald Trump junior was gonna come on. It's election day. He comes on about two calls and I picked up the hotline we talk a little bit. And he says to me, you know, Bill. My dad could have won this. And I said, what do you mean, you say, well, we didn't have Walker in Wisconsin didn't have case again, Ohio didn't have Bush in Florida. I just had a sense that we could have won this thing about three or four hours later. I got a text from him saying that it's worse than we thought the exit. Polling is terrible. And we're going to lose Ohio by eight points gonna lose Florida by five and I said, well, you know, just what can I say, good luck? You ran a good race by nine thirty. I get a text that says. Doll catches car. What we do. Did you have a sense that the Bush family, I'm sorry that Trump family, not the Bush Bush families on my mind, but the Trump family did not believe including the president never gonna win the election. They did not they they thought they had a chance they thought that they had a punchers chance if you will. And I I write in the book about election night, and that exact process that they went through and that some of their Trump supporters in key states, like Florida, I talk about Susie wild to that don't believe the exit polls. I think Florida's winnable don't give up as a matter of fact, I talk in the book how Don jR, and Eric were deployed to get on every radio show. They could in the handle, right? Try to Trump supporters. Don't despair get out there. It's not over. And as the number started coming in from Florida than North Carolina and elsewhere as the evening progressed starting at about nine thirty things looked better and better internally. It wasn't obvious at the network level. Although I counted the book about ten twenty that evening. I was one of the first if not the first network reported to say in Trump Tower, they are beginning to see this thing turn. Inning and see not one not stupid, maybe three paths to victory. So. But one thing I say in the book about President Trump and candidate Trump is he has a very deep sense. I've got instinct, and he thought he had a chance. And he didn't necessarily believe the exit poll numbers were the true reflection of what was going to happen as the numbers and turn out came through because he saw the crowds. And he has a very NHL sense of what this movement is. And how people responded to him. So did they predict it? No, did I predict it not at all. They thought they had some kind of a chance. But as I recount the book, just as you did when those first exit poll numbers came in. There was some places like oh boy. Well, the county it came back to me the other night. I'm watching what's happening in Macron's France and Macron was elected the forty percent of the vote or communist and the other forty percent were like Nazi types character over the countryside was very unhappy. They had the left and the right wing was like forty percent of the electorate, and I'll look back over the past ten years. I contend the main reason that Barack Obama one was there was a sense. He was an outsider he beat Hillary. We wanted something different. And then I had a sense in two thousand sixteen that Trump is the ultimate outsider. We didn't want Jeb. We didn't want Hillary Glenn again. And when I see going on in France that middle class Americans are like rebelling at seven dollars a gallon gasoline, and there was a rebellion against the status quo with the Bush and the Clintons back and forth. And that's why Obama was elected. And that's why Trump is going to be elected. And then in twenty twenty. God knows what's going to happen. But can you tell me major Garrett? Why do you think it happened? What wasn't on election week election day twenty sixteen that caused it to happen when it was completely unpredicted by all the experts? Well, what I say in the book is there a couple of big issues. One that's idea of an outsider the ultimate outside or someone who really stood a score politics wasn't not just a Clinton or Bush. But someone who said, you know, I dealt with politicians on both right and left them both checks. I know how the system works crime. I'm not that that gave Donald Trump kind of credibility that literally nobody else could talk to the sense that he was self made his supporters believed and that he could not be bought. I can't tell you. How often Bill I heard that during the two thousand sixteen campaign, which I started covering in twenty fifteen I tended more than seventy five Trump rallies. And I talked to these people at every rally I went to to get the perspective. Learn what they had to say that was a big part of it not only outsider, but couldn't be bought the book. Also that there was a sense in Washington for the entire conversation. Our country by immigration was settled, guess what it wasn't. It wasn't settled. No, Donald Trump had a very different message. Most Republicans and Democrats in Washington DC thought about and talked about immigration, and that as resonant as anything else, he said touched a chord, and I write in the book, if you don't agree with Donald Trump's policies on immigration, you better understand. But there are lots of Americans who do and if you wanted different set of policies, you better figure out a way to talk to those people and get them on your side. Because if you don't we they're going to be just immigration standstill over the policies that Donald Trump campaigned on. And it's done every single thing. He said he would do to enforce are gonna remain here. I think that was a big part of that twenty sixteen conversation. Major Garrett I'm in the mid west you travel, the whole country. I guess in the southeast southwest is a bigger issue. I don't see the Democratic Party over the next several weeks capitulating and giving him his five billion dollars for the wall. Because the base of the Democratic Party would like rebel. They don't want that. So I think this immigration issue is going to continue to be Yuejin twenty twenty am I wrong. I think that's the best way to think about it until there's a dramatic shift and one part of that is going to be resolved in the next couple of weeks one way or the other because we have to fund the government. No one's going to have a perpetual government shutdown over wall funding, but there's probably going to be a day or two or so maybe longer, and there's gonna be some push and shove, and then some give and take it. What's the dollar amount? Gonna be how is it defined for border security, all that is subject to negotiation. But this issue is not going to go away. I totally agree with you. And the other thing in twenty twenty alongside immigration, and it was important in two thousand sixteen higher chapter devoted to it. In the book, what happened to the supreme court because Donald Trump was elected president. What's happened to the federal bench because he is president and the future of the supreme court, whether it's Donald Trump reelected or somebody else also going to be an enormous part of the twenty twenty conversation. I'm like a normal God fearing American, and the reason I voted for Trump wasn't the tweets. I don't support him now because of some of his. Anger toward his political opponents, three reasons one is immigration to is the court system and three is the economic economic system in America, which I think despite the market being in the crapper is a positive with Trump there, and that's not going to change and to me as an attorney, you know, my wife's senior judge of the high court of appeals. And I want a court system that reflects the values of people like myself, and I saw no hope of that happening in Cavanaugh Cavanaugh, and you spend quite a bit of time on the ups and downs the whole cabinet nomination. And like every day was like a month. Wasn't it every day the one week that was a month? And there are times when other parts of the Trump White House feel that way or the Trump experience feel that way. I have an entire chapter called ten days. In may the first day James Comey was fire. And then everything that transpired since and the next nine days and Bill tell you this. I've had White House correspondents who work right alongside me at the White House. Rather networks are big newspapers did the stories covered L. The stuff they've come up to me and said reading that chapter major. I forgot half of what happened and I wrote about it. I covered it. And I forgot about it is this pace and velocity of things under the Trump era are sort of dizzying, and that's one of the reasons Bill, I must tell you. I wrote the book sort of have a place where everyone could go to find facts journalism. Everything is on the record in the book. No one has assailed anything in the book about the White House. Not anybody, and I'm proud of that because these times needs something that you can rely on that you can verify and itself thera five. That's why there's no blind quotes in my book. Everyone's on the record for that reason. It's like drinking from a fire hose that the Bush presidency at least Bush forty three the first two or three years were unbelievable. But things even doubt Obama was no drama Obama and right now, the dramatic events happening or like unbelievable like like every few days and God help us when Muller issues a report later this month or in January what? What the hell is going to come of that? I mean, and I think probably the Trumpster did commit some financial crime at some point in his life owning thousand company he's gonna do something wrong at some point. But that's going be a launching pad for impeachment. And did you think this? Let me ask you this major Garrett. Did you think Trump's gonna be impeached? I don't because you have to have. Well, right. So so what does that mean does that mean a peach and removed from office? No, I it's it's possible. Possible. I would put it at maybe ten or fifteen percent, no more than that. Based on what we know now on the inclination of incoming House Democratic majority that they would go down that road articles of impeachment and vote on. But if they were asked me a trial in the Senate and the threshold is unreachable. It wouldn't happen. Absent a kind of revelation that is so striking. So. So absolutely gasping do seeing that the political system comes to a fundamentally different interpretation of the motives, and means of this presidency than it has so far that seems highly highly unlikely to me, I do think that there's going to be very serious oversight from the Democrats are gonna ask a lot of pesky questions. The president. I know in the process now is trying to lawyer up the White House in the counsel's office to get ready for that. There's gonna be some some battle royale is about what the president's intentions war. What's people who work for him did or didn't do? And it's going to be hard in that environment is the president said the day after the election to move legislation forward. He said it's one or the other either you investigate me all we do deals. We're not going to do both. Right. That's sort of an operative dynamic as we looked at twenty nineteen major Garrett CBS news..

Harry's with major Garrett from CBS news chief White House correspondent major. I swear to goodness. You are so on you are so why do you work mostly in Washington pretty much down and watching right? Well, if you come to New York career Washington started in nineteen ninety so I've been here ever since. God bless you, man. I tell you what you're more than welcome to go to Hoboken, New Jersey. Baby come on when you're when you're ready make you what happened. This out together. I am. So we it will make news in Hoboken, baby. I I may I was if you go major I will sing fly meeting with the piano player dean on areas. We'll actually it could be ugly. But it'll be fun nonetheless bait major Garrett. Hey, Mr. Trump's while rides the name of majors book, and before we get there, a major if I May President Bush lying in state at the rotunda. All good it worked out what happened yesterday. And who are the notable Warner's there, sir? Well, of course, all of special congressional Washington there and many of the key members of President, George. Herbert walker? Bush's cabinet was there. Mike Pence, the vice president gave a tremendous set of remarks linking not only. George H W Bush to the presidency to congress, which is his son Mike Pence and sun, a marine aviator, George Herbert Walker Bush, a naval aviator, maybe those remarks whereas good as you can get as well as the tributes from the speaker of the house, Paul Ryan majority leader Mitch McConnell, and so many luminaries in the George Walker Bush cabinet there to say. Mattered. He won election, maybe eight loss in ninety two at the time this presidency looked like something approximating a failure in retrospect with the distance and perspective of time. It looks better. It looks a lot better. And that's one thing every president has ever covered. It's always said about the office and the burdens I'm not gonna worry as much as you might think I will worry about today's decision measured by today's standards. I have to think about today's decision measured by the test of time. Wow. And that's that's harder than it. Sounds really hard. Yeah. Politics is instantaneous judgement, so harsh and immediate. And this office requires a kind of patience and the kind of confidence in the longer term evaluation of what you've done that's hard. Doesn't come natural. We'll said major did you have occasion to have a many personal interactions with president George H W Bush. I did not I covered his presidency where I live in Washington literally Joe behind years. No, nothing reporter trying to figure it out. Bathrooms are in Washington. Nineteen ninety ninety two the time of his presidency. I was covering congress a lot what's going on the Bush White House was very energetic. Even though the congress was democratic and hostile. He's got a tremendous amount of work done. Yeah. Campaign was nineteen ninety two. So I saw it H W Bush New Hampshire, so pack you can in there. Let's remember that failed challenge to George Hw. Bush was from that knowledge from the conservative, right, but from the economic nationalist populist, right and the hard line on immigration, right? And what does that sound like now that you plan and was foreshadowing kind of movement that Donald Trump set in motion and bolted himself to the presidency on in two thousand sixteen as interesting that you make that observation major, but see the thing is that people are forgetting major, and then we'll talk about the book, Mr. Trump's wild ride. But I think h w would have won he would have won. If it wasn't for Ross Perot? And I've only heard that mentioned once I mean Ross Perot took nineteen percent of the vote at least two thirds of that would have gone to President Bush, correct? Ross Perot was a significant downdraft in ninety two and it took those Republicans who were upset with George. Herbert walker? Bush over tax increases, you remember, he said, famously lamented review. Tax. Yeah. Any changed and ideological Republicans are no tax Reagan Republicans that was just unforgivable all the other things. She did not withstanding. They just couldn't get over that essentially, was deepening. And there was just a sense that Washington wasn't functioning Ross Perot came in there and said, I can fix it. I covered his campaign for the time. It lasted during that spring. Forget ninety two Ross was leading the polls not just a challenger. He was leading in polls for the presidency and then things better control. But the colo- factor was real. But it spoke to this thing that Pat Buchanan, I touched on and then Ross Perot capitalized Republican dissatisfaction with bipartisan, president cutting deals with Democrats. Interesting thing about this, George H W Bush is really kind of a transitional figure in our political way of thinking about loyalty to party and intense loyalty to your partisan ideology and approach you didn't have that loyalty any pay the price for most politicians haven't made that same mistake or tried to avoid making that mistake since Beijing guy with Piscopo morning, major chief White House correspondent for CBS news has a great new book called Mr. Trump's wild ride, which has just gone rave reviews. Major Garrett what spied you to write this book, sir? So I've been covering the American presidency for better part of twenty years in congress for ten years before that and I come with the Trump campaign. I opened the book killers, you know, by saying, you know, I missed some things I blew it. I loosen things. Here are experiencing supposed to be a nodal not a know it all and I wanted to approach my readers admitting that straight up to say, look any journalist comes at you. After twenty sixteen campaign says I do everything I had it all figured out there. Probably well, there's certainly fooling themselves, and they're trying to fool you. So I wanted to try to take this moment and say, we have all this heavy emotional reaction to President Trump and the sense of I do I love him so much. I can't scandal. Eat them these ruining America. So pronounced there's really nobody in the middle about. Well, what is the Donald Trump presidential experience? Like, and I wanted to be as much as I could journalists who just tells people what's happened. What's likely to last from the Trump presidency? I don't get involved in at all. Because I know you've looked at the book was telling people to like or dislike this credit. I don't mean on that at all. You tell you is what's already happened with her legacy items of this presidency and how they happened at how President Trump made them having journalism. It's what I've done my whole life. And I thought if any topic deserve that kind of treatment, it was this one, you know, a major God bless you for doing that man because it's everybody's so slanted one way or the other. I love the way you approach this. And and you went after this like this. Let me tell you to my goodness major. I could talk to you for an hour. We'll save that for for the dinner at Dino, and Harry when we. But one on one major Garrett, Donald J Trump you must have had little interaction there. Yeah. Gives the inside on that. If you would. Well, key is a formidable and charming person he has to bend. This sense of presence when he walks into any room or walks into any place. He owns it. And he knows it, and that projection of his sense of confidence and strength, and charm is unmistakable every politician at that high level has it, but Donald Trump has it to a different degree. And that's one of the reasons he has this rapturous re re relationship with his Trump supporters. I've been the more than one hundred Trump rallies but twentieth. President and about eighty during the campaign I've seen this process. It's unlike anything I've ever seen in American whilst wire man, people really feeling an emotional and deeply in second intense. He's mine I'm with him. We're together we're together in this thing. And that's why I think sometimes the media doesn't understand that when it is covering this. President those supporters feel kind of left out Joe. Is their voices? Come supporters voices. One through the book. I wanted their voices represented as well. 'cause I met I talked to them. I got to know them, and they're a part of this conversation national and they're in the book as well. And you had an exclusive interview with Jared, Kushner, what did he tell you about the crown prince of Saudi Arabia major? So thank you for noticing. In this context. So during the transition President-elect Trump told Jared, you're in charge of establishing my most important foreign policy relationships, and they're accused segments in the Jared on the record talks about how the relationship with the Saudi kingdom got started. He talked to Mohammed bin era parent, the current crown prince all the time during the transition, and it was Jared Kushner and the crown prince put together that first presidential trip to Saudi Arabia. The first time that's ever happened in American history and lay down a marker in the region that America is gonna be different under Donald Trump in terms of a one Israel Saudi Arabia and the entire complex of issues there. And one of the reasons President Trump has been less willing to maybe some Republicans and lots of Democrats wanted to be criticizing or change in relationship with Saudi Arabia because of Jared Kushner's relationship with the crown prince number one and number two. How this president believes there needs to be a counterweight? In the region to Iran and Saudi Arabia is it and that's more important than almost anything else. And if you wanna learn how that all got started you can hear it from Jared Kushner on the record in my book and Henry Kissinger had some interesting advice for Jared Kushner on the diplomatic front, didn't he? With china. He said look one of the things with Chinese always want to figure out is what's the bottom line? They don't know who your dad is. They don't know what his approach is going to be used that. Unpredictability as a strength keep them off guard. And Joe, you might remember, I certainly a breaking news story freaked out about it at the time during the transition. President-elect Trump takes a call from the Taiwanese president on the foreign policy establishment freaks out Jared Kushner said they were able to use that phone call and the questions about whether President Trump wants inaugurated with Keith the one China policy, keeping it was no issue was always going to keep it. But he takes the call from the Taiwanese to do what do you get the Chinese a bit rattled up the summits that establishes a personal relationship between president Xi and President Trump. That's a microcosm of how this president deals with these big issues again all on the record Jared Kushner in the book imager Garrett chief White House. Correspondent CBS news has a great new book.
