Thursday, November 8: Mueller's New Boss
It's Thursday, November eighth in Robert Mueller has a new boss. We start here. Hours after the twenty eighteen midterms go into the books, President Trump pushes his attorney general out the door. This was a fire and just like that. A public critic of Muller is now overseeing his investigation Democrats promised to protect him. But they're not in charge yet. They just want him to do one thing. Let Bob finish what the White House and congressional Republicans are saying about their next steps and don't look now. But another campaign is underway. Nancy Pelosi is clearly the front runner right now who will lead the Democrats as they take over the house from ABC news. This is start here. I'm Brad milkey. Remember the last time we had a big national election. The newly elected president sent out Sean Spicer to do battle with the press. This was the largest audience to ever witness in inauguration period will yesterday the day after the midterms the president's to showed up himself the Blue Wave that they talked about. I don't know if there ever was such thing, but could have been if we didn't do the campaigning problem. What's the word bonkers? Yeah. I in a bunkers press conference, President Trump declared Tuesday of victory we lost the house. He said but Republicans did expand their lead in the Senate. Rick Scott one, and I helped him then the president started pointing fingers I I've Republicans who refused to cling to him amid a wave election, but Mia love gave me no love and she lost to bed. Sorry about that. And then reporters who asked him questions about his tone on the trail, your your weight, and this became a huge moment as he clashes with C N N's Jim Acosta there a White House. Intern reaches over and tries to yank the microphone out of. His hands a cost of puts his arm up and holds on. Let me ask you. If I may ask the question as president. Are you worried enough? That's that's one of the other folks that's enough. Pardon me, ma'am, later that night, the White House announced it had suspended a cost as access to the White House in part. They said for laying his hands on an intern, which he didn't this is Jim Acosta. I am in front of the White House. The cost of tweeted the moment the secret service informed him right before he went on air. But I am now giving my heart pass to the secret service. But I want to go back to that exchange because he was just one of several reporters to ask about this investigations both from congress they can play that game. But we can play better and from special counsel, Robert Muller. I let it just go on. They're wasting a lot of money. And the question came that the president has been avoiding from months, you know, you said you're not a fan of your attorney general Jeff Sessions. So would you ever fire him? And with no election in front of him. No backlash from voters. Elaine congress. The president took a pass we're looking at a lot of different things including cabinet. I'm very happy with most of my cabinet, but minutes after he left the podium. We learned that. There was a plan. This is ABC news special report, and it was already in the works. Attorney general Jeff Sessions has now resigned at the request of the president takes effect immediately. And you might not have realized it then. But at that moment, there was a new acting attorney general his name is Matthew Whitaker, and that makes sense, right? That sounds like a baby step right wrong. This is huge. This is the only thing that matters today. Because at that moment, Matthew Whitaker was placed in charge of Robert Muller's Russia probe. Remember, the only reason you even know deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein name under mounting pressure. From Capitol Hill attorney general Jeff Sessions, stepping aside is because Jeff Sessions had recused himself from anything to do with Russian election meddling Rosenstein became that guy. Well, no sessions. No need for Rosenstein Whitaker is now the new sheriff in town. We're gonna go to ABC's, Mike Levin. He covers the Justice department. And that is where he is right now. Mike first question was this resignation or was Jeff Sessions fired? This was a firing. This was not sessions choice as one DOJ person told me he had no choice. So this was a firing. Also, how did it go down about your attorney general, and your deputy attorney general do they have long term job security answer that at a little bit different time. While that press conference was going on. I was at DOJ walking around the courtyard, and you can tell something was going on. There were a bunch of black SUV's more than usual sort of driving around the courtyard. We saw security personnel. There was something going on. Then we learned concessions had been had in fact resigned officially at Trump's request and sources were everyone here. Justice department officials say they were stunned that it happens so quickly after the midterms. So it's just a matter of hours after the results came in. That Mr. sessions was fired. Yeah. You were there as sessions left the building, and he was flanked by rod Rosenstein, along with that new acting AG Matt Whitaker you've dealt with Whittaker. Right. Who who is he he is listening? He is a solid conservative. No question about that. He does have experience of the Justice department at one time. He was the US attorney out of Iowa. He's a former football player quite gregarious Izzo gregarious that he's made public comments in the past about the Muller investigation on TV or I see a scenario where Jeff Sessions is replaced. It was a recess appointment, and that attorney general doesn't fire Bob Muller. But he just reduces the budget so low that his his investigation grinds to absolutely almost he's written columns criticizing the Muller investigation. And so there are questions about what that will mean four molar and for everything moving ahead. I just so we're clear then I mean, if this guy wants to he can shut down the Muller investigation like right now. Right. Well, he is again, he's technically the head of the investigation. The over. Seer of Muller reports to the attorney general and right now, the acting attorney general is Matt Whitaker at the same time Muller has done so much already. He's collected so much evidence. He's already brought so many indictments. He's brought so many people before the grand jury even if this investigation were to get shutdown tomorrow. It's not like everything goes away sound like things go poof. There is still so much to move forward with the low weight, Mikey any he's the boss, right? Are you saying he'd legally can't fire Muller? Or are you saying it's more like a political impossibility? I would say that is a political impossibility. And Mr. Trump, the president himself said that at that press conference yesterday, I could fire everybody right now when I don't wanna stop it. He said he doesn't want to stop because he knows that. It's just politically can happen. And Whitaker has been on record using some of the president's logic in defending that infamous Trump Tower meeting between his son the campaign staff and the Russian lawyer he told CNN once you would always have somebody from the campaign take that meeting and here that personnel. Sounds very much like Donald Trump. He also said investigating the president's finances would cross a line and he wants to just cutting off Robert Muller's funding. I mean does that impact whether he should oversee him? I think if if that were to happen. It would be that Whitaker has to accuse himself from the investigation just like sessions did and to do that he has to determine with career officials inside the Justice department that there's just too much of a conflict of interest perhaps based on previous statements. He's made about the Muller investigation and that he has to recuse himself. But I asked the very senior Justice department official if there's been any talk with senior officials ethics officials inside the Justice department about Whitaker recusing himself. And as of now, it seems like that has not happened. Well, and. There's been speculation. Right. That Robert Mueller might wrap up his investigation by the end of the year. If he's sitting on stuff right now does this affect when he might release whatever he's got. I don't see that happening Muller is such a by the book guy that I don't think he's going to change course, if Whitaker or someone else is going to try to stand in his way Muller is going to do what he has to do. And he's going to you know, just going to move forward. And in terms of weather reports come out or hear anything, you know, Muller falls new pressure. I just I don't see that happening. All right now. Dumps for now says my hey, thanks for filling us in. Thanks for. As you just heard. There are rules in place for this kind of decision contingencies. One person gets ousted you go to the DOJ rulebook and take his place. But what about the man who made the decision in? What about the people who could make rules to protect Robert Muller to bring an ABC senior congressional correspondent Mary Bruce. She is at the capitol right now and ABC's Johnson Tucci who is as plugged in as anybody to the inner thinking of this White House, and so John let me start with you. Because the president had a lot to talk about yesterday. Right. He had things to celebrate. So why fire the attorney general now we'll Brad every person I've spoken to close to the president is saying the same exact thing they thought the president was going to make this move in the coming days. But at the end of the day, it was shocking to everyone. And especially after they felt the president had a really good night in their opinion. The president himself was in a very good mood. All evening apparently didn't get much sleep because he was so happy about the results coming in from the. Senate and then to see this happen. I mean, one aide said to me he felt in Bolden. He just wanted to do it. And here we were it happened. Well, and Mary what was the reaction congress shock as well. Yes, the shock is a safe way of saying in shock and a lot of confusion, and then a lot of urgent call to get to the bottom of what really happened here. You are already seeing Elijah Cummings who's in line to become the chair of the powerful house committee on oversight and government reform saying that they need to investigate the real reason behind this firing to confirm that the new acting attorney general Whitaker, I will recuse himself from the special counsel probe and he wants to ensure that the DOJ has some safeguards in place to preserve the integrity of the Muller investigation. You're also seeing congressman Nadler who's in line to become the chairman of the has judiciary committee saying that they're going to issue immediate letters trying to to get information from key officials to preserve all the relevant documents related to this action. Look, congress is spooked and freaked out a little bit by this action. They wanna protect the special counsel. Title and already you're seeing Democrats who of course, now have subpoena power and a lot of other power behind them here on Capitol Hill on the house side using that that new power flexing. Some of that muscle to say, we gotta get the bottom of this. We'll be say that because he's New Democrats are about to be sworn in in a couple of months, but I mean this is moving day by day if they want to protect Robert Muller with legislation they need Republicans. Can they get that support remains to be seen? But you are seeing some Republicans at least voicing some concern. Look, look, you have, you know, incoming Utah Senator Mitt Romney stressing in a tweet that the Muller investigation needs to be allowed to be preceded unimpeded, and you have had, you know, over the previous months and weeks as there's been concerns that the president could take this step. There have been a lot of Republicans who have drawn some red lines saying that that Muller, you know, needs to be protected needs to be allowed to do his do his work here without the president or the Trump administration getting in his way the question is now whether they're going to take any action to try and make that actually come to fruition. But you know, if I could just jump in there for a second. Brad because you know, Mary's totally right. We're hearing the same thing over at the White House. They do not want the president to do anything that could cause any type of crisis that could result in some form of investigation potentially impeachment. If he didn't even to get rid of Bob Malo, did he could dig him further into a whole totally they they want. Bob Muller to finish be done and go away that is the thing right now that we're hearing from Trump orbit. They just want him to do one thing. Let Bob finish. Don't do anything to piss off. Bob, don't do anything to screw up. Bob, just let Bob get done. And let's move on. This investigation. Fatigue. Been a long time the obvious question. John is is the president personally worried about what Robert Muller hats, you know, every conversation. I've had Brad. I mean, the president obviously said it multiple times during that long press conference got nothing zero. You know, why? Because there is nothing. But you know, everything we hear that he has been very confident. You know, I've got nothing to hide. I did nothing wrong. I didn't know about these meetings that my son and my campaign chairman Paul Manafort were having with that Russian lawyer in Trump Tower, or they are adamant about that. I mean, he is repeatedly saying it's a witch hunt because he just doesn't know what. Bob Muller can find. I think at the end of the day. And I know we've said this before it's going to be less about what Bob Muller fines related to Russia and the other investigations that are coming out of this. What we're gonna see on Capitol Hill. What we're going to see coming out of the southern district in New York. What we're going to see out of the New York state attorney general's office. A lot of different threads that are coming out from Bob Muller. And if I could just jump in there to look you have to remember that Republican leaders appear top Republicans for months have said that they don't need to take action here to protect Robert Muller because essentially the president, you know, wouldn't be so dumb as to as to take some kind of action to impede this investigation. I haven't seen clear indication yet that we needed to pass something. To keep him from being removed because I don't think that's going to happen. Democrats. Of course, have not shared that sentiment. And now, you feel Democrats are getting very nervous. What's happening is people? Don't like the results, and therefore the effort is let's shut him down. And that would be a big mistake. But both were green in the same way. That Santigi said that those at the White House want Muller's simply to be left alone. That is the overarching sentiment here on Capitol Hill. A question is just whether they need to actually formalize some parameters. And now, of course, you have all these calls from Democrats to have the White House and the administration fork over some documents. Yeah, you and the reporters in DC were warning us before election day, you guys this could get real real quickly. And I know you guys are running on a full tank of gas right now. Right. Oh, yeah. Totally. Yeah. Marion aren't gonna go do another round right now. You want to easy week not stretch to them at all. I'll see you later. Thank you. Brad. Next up on start here. They've been to the minority for eight years. Now, it's time for Democrats to get their house in order. Have a dream. But don't know where to begin. I didn't want him limited looking for wisdom for women who've already been there, you will constantly be given the opportunity to lose yourself. Welcome to ABC's. No limits. I'm your host, Rebecca Jarvis. And each week. We're talking to the game changing women about success lessons learned along the way. And of course, the worst advice, I really thought about this worst advice ever you can hear new episodes of no limits every week on apple podcasts or your favorite podcast app. Everything to do with Jeff Sessions. Of course has completely overshadowed. The fact that in fifty five days new members of congress will take over and at the house, we'll flip to the Democratic Party. President Trump is tweeting about the race to be the next speaker of the house writing, quote, Nancy Pelosi deserves to be chosen speaker of the house by the Democrats without actually means in the corridors the capital is that a new race has already begun to see who will control that democratic house and what they will do with their new power ABC's. John Parkinson is stationed in his perch above the house floor as always John. How's it going? Brett good. So so the big question, I guess is Nancy Pelosi going to be the next speaker of the house. I think if I had to put any money on it, which of course, I won't. I would say yes, Nancy Pelosi is clearly the front runner right now. And she faces no challenges for speaker. I heard the president say I deserve to be speaker. I don't think anybody deserves anything. It's not about what you have done. It's what you can do. And really the surprising thing to me is that. Her top deputies, Steny Hoyer and James Clyburn. They're going to both run for majority leader and majority whip respectively, and they're not really facing any solid challengers yet either and that surprising to you. Because John you thought some young progressives might come up here. Yeah. I thought maybe, you know, you'd see some some of the younger members who really fought against Pelosi when she was in the minority and tried to to seek concessions from her. Then I thought that maybe some of them would step up. You know, you've seen some of these people like Joe Kennedy out on the trail really stumping for Democrats and hop CEO's making three hundred times their average worker is not right? Someone that you know, maybe thought of close it doesn't get there could be somebody that could unite the caucus. So there is one challenger to James Clyburn for majority whip. And that comes from congresswoman Diane to get from Colorado. She announced yesterday that she's going to enter that race. But right now, we got to think that Clyburn with all the support of the Congressional Black caucus. He's really clearly the front runner for that number three position as well. And so let's talk about what Democrats actually want to do because it's it's very easy to be the opposition to be United as the opposition to the White House gets a little trickier when you're actually in charge, right? Yeah. Definitely gets a little bit harder to actually legislate. But now they're that democratic check against the president here in Washington, and they wanna put every single major Trump administration policy along with the president and his business empire under the microscope here and really examined him through the committee process. I think and through their oversight responsibilities. Yeah. Mary told us earlier about Elijah Cummings becoming that oversight chair. I guess that'll be the next thing to get ironed out who actually gets all the committee assignments that they want John over in the house. Thank you. All right. Thanks, brad. And one last thing, let's not get too ahead of ourselves. The midterm elections are still sorting themselves out right now votes remained to be counted their voices that were waiting to be heard Stacey Abrams has still yet to concede. The Georgia governor's race. She thinks she might be able to force a runoff against secretary of state, Brian Kemp and Senator Bill Nelson says he is still in recount territory in Florida, and they want to be the first candidates saved by a big stack of ballots counted at the last minute, New Jersey Democrat Andy kin leaped in front of his house opponent because of Malin votes. A New Mexico Democrat won her race after absentee swung in her favor. Meanwhile, in the house a couple more seats have gone in the favor of the Democrats, New Jersey Democrat, Andy Kim went from trailing two leading just because of mail-in votes. But there are still about ten seats yet to be decided and forget about candidates for a second. Sometimes the things that really tell you about a place or it's ballot measures in an election where people campaigned on. Healthcare three red states, but it to expand Medicaid Utah. Nebraska and Idaho to states Kansas in Maine selected governors that could likely join in in Alabama and West Virginia abortion is still legal. It has to be because of Roe v.

Tired of spending hundreds of dollars for prescription glasses. Xeni offers thousands of Ford -able eyewear styles starting at just six ninety five. No ridiculous markups. No hassles. Just quality affordable. I wear delivered right to you visits. Any today at Xeni dot com slash CNN. Good evening from Washington DC. There's breaking election news out of Florida hand recounting ordered and the undecided. Senate contest there, and it turns out that this happened without more than seven hundred thousand ballots from Florida's second biggest county the reason for that. It deadline missed by just a few minutes. No recount in the governor's race. Which now appears all but over or bring that shortly. We begin though tonight keeping them on us with an eruption of presidential anger at the rush investigation. Well, however, you see it. It's clear the Robert Muller is very much on the president's mind. He's been meeting with lawyers going over ridden answers to questions that one of his attorneys told the Washington Post included, and I'm quoting here possible traps with the special counsel is next legal move expected shortly perhaps involving people close to the president the president woke up this morning and began tweeting, quote, the inner workings of the mother investigation are total mess. He tweeted they have found. No collusion. Have gone. Absolutely nuts. They are screaming and shouting at people horribly threatening them to come up with the answers they want. They are. Graced to our nation and don't care how many lives that ruin these are angry people, including the highly conflicted. Bob Muller who worked for Bama for eight years. They won't even look at all the bad acts and crimes on the other side. And then in all caps, quote, a total witch hunt like no other in American history. Now in a subsquently. The president says quote, universities will someday study what highly conflicted and not Senate approved. Bob Muller and his gang of democrat thugs have done destroy people. And clearly he's not a fan, but keeping them on us. You can take dim view of the investigation any number of grounds without uttering a single false it which is not the president. Does here for starters have Robert Muller's thug. He's a registered Republican one as for the president's claim he worked eight years or President Obama suggesting was Mr. bama's FBI director. He was not it was the country's FBI director for four years during the Obama administration in eight years during this president's tenure. Thank you all for coming. General. Thank you for being here is my honor to nominate Robert de smaller of California to become the director of the Federal Bureau of investigation. That is well known democrat, George W Bush as for not being Senate approved Robert Muller was confirmed ninety eight zero in two thousand one hundred zero when President Obama renominated him, but no special counsel. He was not cynic confirmed as because special counsels don't receive Senate confirmation as for the president's claim that the Muller investigation has found no collusion with Russia during the campaign or subsquently. That's not a factual statement, the special counsel has said nothing one way or another. We have no idea what if anything Muller's found regarding allegations of collusion, we do know he's already indicted Russians for literally collaborating with Americans. He's already indicted one of the participants that now famous Trump Tower meeting during the campaign is reportedly focusing on others, and now could be on the verge of indicting one or more Trump associates in connection with ties to WikiLeaks, which in turn is. IT emails hacked by the Russians. Now, of course, it's possible. The president's rage stems from being falsely accused but Robert Mueller has yet to accuse him of anything. It's also possible the presidency's the walls closing in and his lashing out. Whatever the case he seems once again to be saying things that increase not diminish the scrutiny on him. There's reporting as well tonight's Washington Post, we touched on it briefly at the top of the broadcast, Josh dossier. Got additional word on the ridden. Questions. President Trump is working with his legal team to answer. And which ones could be trouble. So Josh which questions from Muller or the president's lawyers planning on answering, and which ones aren't they plan answering? Do you know? Well, if they're good question Anderson, I could not give the answer to that. Today. I talked to Rudy Giuliani. The mayor the president main lawyer today, the obviously the former mayor of New York who said they had received the written questions they were nearly done with them. And they had not decided if we're going to answer some because they thought they could be traps or legally problematic. I pressed him on what questions those were. And he would not say what we know is that there are at least two dozen questions are so that all focus on pre twenty sixteen election day the campaign, and they focus on veg collusion, according to mayor Giuliani. So we know about the questions up to November twenty sixteen. The president's lawyers have met with him for maybe ten or fifteen hours as we looking them, and they're still wrangling with how many of them they want to answer. And how many of them don't? So are the questions focused on on the pre before the president became the president? When he was president elect and ran during the campaign because that's all Muller was interested in it. Or because that's all that the president's team were willing to answer. Well, that's all they thought they have agreed to answer Anderson. They have not agreed to answer anything about obstruction or anything post election day or transition. The president's team has been very Radisson to agree to any sort of questions after he began president citing privilege saying that that should not be part of the investigation. And there's a lot of internal discussions going on about whether they will answer any of those in the future. The only thing they've agreed to consider questions before election day. And as we reported this afternoon it's unclear whether they're gonna even answer all of those or not and Giuliani wouldn't specify which questions create more legal issues for them than others. No lot. He would not less, Leslie. I know you have some new details about a conversation between Lindsey Graham and acting turning general Whitaker. Right, Senator Graham, Gano Republican Matt with acting attorney general Whitaker on Capitol Hill today, Senator Graham spoke to tonight, he said, the acting attorney general said he would not recuse himself from the probe as many Democrats, including Senator Mark Warner want him to do. So that he did not need to recuse himself. But then he also had not spoken to two special counsel maller about the investigation yet and would be following regular order where special counsel Muller reports to rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general cinema Graham city also committed to not shutting down the investigation of his meeting and said, that whatever's opinion theat and the private sector before coming in Ivy Asli Matt would it go was very critical of the investigation would not be a part of his thinking now. So we shall say. All right, Josh dossier. Appreciate the reporting. Thank you. Thank you wanna get more perspective. Now from one lawmaker who may soon be looking closer to all of this, California. Democrat Eric swallow sits on the house, intelligence and judiciary committees. I spoke to him just before air. This notion that the president is team are not entering any questions about possible obstruction of Justice or anything about his time as president. Does that surprise you the Miller went along with that will I think Muller wants to give him every opportunity to give his version of events. So that knowing the way the president conducts himself and that he undermines an attacks investigation. When report comes out. I don't think Muller wants the president to say I didn't have my chance to tell my side of the story. So I think it's brilliant the way that molars doing impatient. Said he's showing and the president is certainly not acting like an innocent person. And I think he's just giving the president more and more rope to hang himself Giuliani was interesting saying to to the Washington Post. There are some issues legally for them some of the questions create more issue's legally for them than others. That's what someone who would have a lot of exposure would probably say again, if you didn't do anything wrong, you typically don't have anything to worry about. And you would just answer the questions and come clean. So the notion of a perjury trap. You don't buy. I a perjury trap can only capture perjures. And so I I don't buy that. If the president didn't do anything wrong the as far as Whitaker's assurances to Lindsey Graham, according to Lindsey Graham, and the Washington Post that he won't shut down the molar investigation. Do you put much faith in that? Because frankly, all we know about Whitaker's opinion of it is based on what he said prior to swimming power and prior to him actually having access to the information. We know a few things about what we know that he's prejudged the molar investigation. We know that he has plotted with President Trump, according to vox reporting to put himself into this investigation and to wind it down. And so I I don't really necessarily trust Lindsey Graham opinion. I'd rather see Whitaker ask the office of ethics as to whether needs to recuse himself, and for that opinion from the ethics office to be made public. You think he should recuse themselves? Yes. Well, I think he should ask. But I I don't see how there's not the perception of conflict for two reasons. One his prejudging. But also the relationship he has. With a key witness in the investigation Sam Clovis, he was Sam Clovis treasurer simple. This was a key witness in the George popadopoulos part of the investigation, and we're guilty. Yeah. The the the I mean, I know you said that you want congress to pass a Bill to protect Muller Republicans show. No sign of having any interest in that. Even after the Democrats soon power in the house. There are still going to control the Senate. Mitch McConnell has shown no sign of having an interest. But bipartisan Republicans from Chuck Grassley and others on the judiciary committee in the Senate passed legislation to protect Muller McConnell is subverting the will of the majority not even allowing vote now on the house side. You're right. We haven't seen any interest at all. But as we have this budget showdown Democrats are telling Republicans in the house that if you want us to give you votes because you've ever been able to get the votes on your own you're going to need to put protect Molin legislation in that you're optimistic. It's still could happen. Yes. If they want our votes in for two years, the Republicans have controlled the house the Senate and the White House, and they've not been able to pass a budget without democratic votes. And this time we're going to say that the cost of that is going to be to protect the rule of law and to protect Molin congressman swallow, thanks. Yeah. My pleasure. Well, let's talk about people with us on it. So many almost feels like election night. The author of the last palace your turbulent century and five lives in one legendary house. Also, David challenged Gloria borger Kirsten powers, Paul Begala. Rick Santorum and David urban centers Centro, you're watching us congressman swallow their when he says that that would occur is compromised because he was the treasurer for campaign Sam Clovis, you say that's just absurd. I mean, really I mean, it's just. So attenuated even the even the assertion that he's prejudged the case. I mean, the the reality is that he was a pundit on this network, and he made comments that you know, he did as a private citizen making making punditry comments before he'd actually seen any actual documentation a word. Great ground here on. Okay. So you want to be attorney general? That's it. I'm done. So no, the he's now on a roll, we as a responsibility. If you look at the way, he behaved as you know in the attorney general's office. He's going to he's going to do what the president, you know, says with respect to being attorney general, except as you heard Lindsey Graham with respect to the MO investigation. I think he's, you know, he's this is Linda is going to be the chairman of the judiciary committee. He sat down and talk with him. I think he's gonna I no matter I don't know him. Well, but I know well enough he's going to do the job. He's not going to inject himself into the middle of the Muller pro. But let me assure you Paul the job is to starve the Muller produce awards that Mr. Whittaker used this president, God bless him. He's so transparent. It's interesting. He lies all the time. About matters spent about his own thoughts and feelings, I I really admire how he's so wide open in an interview to the daily caller. They asked him about maybe Chris Christie permanently replacing Whitaker. What to? Trump say he didn't say we'll Christie attorneys qualify. He started talking about Muller, he explained to you. He talked about the legal opinion that said that that he could appoint Whitaker. And then he said, and as you know, I'm concerned, this is an investigation should have never been. Brought it it should never have been had. It's something that should never have been brought it's an illegal investigation. So you ask him about Matt Whitaker. And he says the investigation is illegal because that's all building his defacto ordering Whittaker to shut down and Whitaker's do it. If they don't know. He's just watch been nonstop that Whitaker Muller nonstop. So that's what he's talking about. Of course. It's up. Yes. Kristie asking about neighbor's house hires op, how are you? I don't have the Domino's guy chained up in the basement. To try to hang not gonna stick garrison. I just don't understand why what that would occur says as a pundit isn't relevant. I mean, you're acting like there's some magic wall between what happens here and the rest of the Enron. Don't take to take an oath of office. Taking all your opinions expressed here don't just disappear because you took an oath. I mean, he expressed some pretty severe opinions. I would say including talking about you believe that's why he got shutting. Yes. Absolutely. I mean, the president. There's no question the president of wants somebody who's going to do his bidding on this. And so I I don't know how you can just be so dismissive of the things that he said, I don't think so much about shutting down the Muller investigation. Because I do think there'd be an outcry, and I do think rod Rosenstein, by the way is still involved Whitaker is his boss, but Rosenstein is still involved. I think we're Whitaker becomes hugely important is when Muller issues his report does he redact it does he say, this is not for the American public to view this needs to remain private. And then you end up with a huge constitutional fight here on your hands. And I think the president would like it to be deep six, and maybe Whitaker would agree with him on that. And that's a problem just moving onto the president's tweets. Why do you think he is? So. Worked agitated worked up, whatever. However you wanted to describe clearly. Clearly, it's in his mind going over with his lawyers about it. I mean, exactly that's why I would imagine, you know, we we now know we've been reporting he spent three days the last three days with his lawyers, can you? I mean, look at Donald Trump and how he has behaved both as a private citizen as it comes to legal matters. And now as president relating to this probe. We know how much this probe is under his skin. So sitting in a room with his lawyers being forced to confront the reality of this probe. And not just the created reality on Twitter for Donald Trump is a whole different universe. And so he's clearly a frustrated but be trying to set a predicate for this report whenever it comes out for how it's going to be received in public at the only thing is I would say to you. We know from Donald Trump that there's one reason Jeff Sessions was fired. Right. One reason because he recused himself from the probe. Correct. So the Winokur replacement was to get someone who did not recuse themselves from the probe. That's the entire reason. We're Whitaker's why sessions by the vacancy existed, and he found somebody who he wouldn't have that kind of original sin with. That's how you get horses out of the barn. I mean, you can't you can't put the molar pro back rewind. I mean, it's there it's probably close to the conclusion they're going to be issuing a report you kiss cancer. Is to deny reality like to deny Trump's Trump's idea of what he would agree that that he picked Whitaker because he wanted someone who is going to be tough on the pro. Okay. But it sounded like you did nothing. But the reality is he he does. But the reality is he can't be and won't be because it's just politically untenable. But is not right. There are thousand ways that he can choke off that Whitaker can choke off this, and he's signaled them on CNN as the president was sitting in his pajamas eating and watching television. And that is why the president picked it. And you cannot be certain of what Whitaker will do. He can cut the funding he can refuse to turn. That report over he could gut the report there can be a court fight about executive privilege on the report with the president has done. This is not just a question of his outrageous behavior toward sessions because of sessions in. Independence. This comes into pattern of firing Komi as well. The president wants a lapdog and that is contrary to what we get at the department of Justice. That's not a left. I'll just skip forward. We get to the report. Let's assume report comes out what in the glorious part. There's going to be excised. The house is going to ask for it. This is actually this is a political exercises. You all well know, right? The president is not going to be indicted. He's not gonna this is about impeachment, which is a political exercise. Is it the political will about Chris it'll be it'll be it'll be it'll be it'll be a battle about executive privilege at the end of the day. This is will the house representatives impeach the other high crimes and misdemeanors that the president is committed to the house will move to impeach us about otherwise it's going to be over and everyone's going to move on. But isn't there some value in in just understanding what happened whether or not, it's absolutely? But I'm saying this is really this is why is the president tweeting Wasi doing this political battle Senator was there. I was there in the Senate for the impeachment of Bill Clinton it. How Senate didn't wanted teach Bill Clinton the house wanted to teach him? And ultimately he wasn't impeach because it was a political loser. And. And that's what's trying to be set up here. I guarantee with it gets the Senate if the house doesn't peach it'll be dropped like a hot potato just like the Clinton impeachment. Go. Oh, I think that's that's going to happen. At the end of the I think the president has spent the last month before crowds that adore him. And he was all excited about the election. And it didn't go that. Well, he comes back to the stark reality of three days with your lawyers, which will drive anybody crazy and he realizes in the answers. I mean, this is an open book take home tests that his lawyers have done the answers for for him. They're going over these answers, and it's difficult as Rudy Giuliani pointed out, and by the way, if I were the other lawyers I'd be so furious at Giuliani at it because he shouldn't be doing this giving interviewing, but yeah, I mean t- saying this some of these are problematic. Some of them are relevant. Some of them are perjury traps. Really? I mean femme can ask what he wants. It's not gonna help the president for Rudy to be saying this out out loud. And then so the president now they have to they have to make sure everything is accurate. And so they've written these. Answers the president to sit down with him and his to say well, yes. And no it happened that way, and it didn't happen that way. And he's frustrated because he doesn't like the process, and by the way, there's no guarantee that he won't have to testify on obstruction. This is just part one this collusion. There's another. It will be a whole different set of constitutional be privileged. But Muller has not given him any promises about part two Bono. But Muller, actually, Bob Muller has said they will follow the DOJ guidelines, right, but part on is very problematic. Remember Giuliani says we can't answer some of this. Lawyer. It's the president realizing oh my God before I even get to what we thought was the problem obstruction? I got collusion problem. And that's why you get these crazy tweets collusion. No collusion. Let's take a quick break. We're gonna pick up the conversation when we come back and also later how Florida US Senate recount will play out and all the uniquely Florida factors that played into making this such a closing chaotic raise.

Join me in the president's anger against the rush investigation. And the breaking news about the questions that he and his attorneys or said to be working on right now and have been for several days, and what Robert Muller's team might be getting ready to do now that the midterms behind us. It's really making plenty of suspense intention apparently a bit of venting by the president back now with our team does gore. I mean when Rudy Giuliani speaks like this does he have permission from the is this like an organized strategy. No. But I do think that I think that the lawyers who are doing the Raskin's which we're married couple or doing the go. She aiding with with Muller team. And I think Rudy Giuliani is sort of the president's spokesman, I think the president would like to have Rudy Giuliani more involved. I think the other attorneys would like to have Rudy Giuliani less involved. And so I think it's a sort of a bit of a tug of war. The president is very close to Rudy. He trust him. He thinks Rudy understands what he's thinking. And he believes. Giuliani has done a good job. And I think he's right about this in discrediting Muller. So why would agree to just focusing on to not dealing with any questions about obstruction and not anything? Well, while the president was president. Well, Bob is a shrewd player having worked on cases with them having been against him. I think that he has wanted to go into a a delay of game in a four corners offense. He's using the clock to build his cases. I mean Anderson look you've got the guilty pleas got over thirty charges thirty people in companies indicted. He's been a turning he's got Cohen in his corner. Now man afford gates. He's building case he's taking this time. Trump thinks oh great negotiating for all these months now Bob is using the time. He knows what he's doing. He's getting answers on Kalou. Asian people thought, well, maybe the president is is an exposed. Now, we know from Rudy. There's some uncomfortable questions there. There is potential exposure for the president. And I don't think just because he isn't asking about obstruction. Now that we should assume that Bob Mueller is never going to play to ask questions about obstruction. What just how much time I mean? We don't know what time I would be. I'd be very surprised. So here's the question. No dish, whatever Joey. Jodi justice. No that's over move on the question. That's how it's going to be answered. And that's it. Maybe he's not asking about obstruction because he has such a powerful case because the president can't shut up. It's the television. On twitter. Maybe as all the evidence, he needs I tend to -gree with David. We don't know all he wants stretching questions face to face. So he can look the president in the eye size him up most entire lifetime. Sizing defendants, and I think that's the key to this. So you do not believe that this is coming to an end. Oh, it's coming to an end. But I don't think that if I were I wouldn't he's way better than I am. But wouldn't allow written questions on state of mind? I don't want the president's lawyers to write up. This is what I was thinking. We do have evidence already of what he was thinking he told Lester Holt, he fired Komi, quote because of this Russia thing, I don't know. Maybe he fired him because at this Russia thing, which suggests that obstruction of Justice. I would I would I would want. I would want it film. So the American people could see my boss got. Interrogated by Ken Starr, about obstruction of Justice and the whole world sought and I want this president under oath asked why he took these steps to obstruct Justice, and the I think the evidence is clear that he did. But I still think that he ought to have the chance to answer those. The only reason that might not happen is because I don't think either side wants a lengthy subpoenaed battle, right? And the presence lawyers would say you're not going to get him because of privilege issues, these are privileged conversations. And if Muller disagreed with that and they'd have to go to subpoena fight. And this is where Mr. Whittaker comes in because before you can get a subpoena, you have to go to rod Rosenstein, or now that would go to that would be that would be decided by the court that would not be, but you have to get permission. I mean this way Pena him without that. Pena him without approval. So if wait occur or Rosenstein said, no, then they couldn't do it. So so I look again, we talked about off camera. The the Woodward book, you talk about Ty, Cobb going and see seeing Muller and saying, hey, look, I dare you. I double dog. Daria drop the mic and walked out of the room. And you haven't seen much since then. Sort of central. Do you think this is going to become a do you think Muller will get a chance to ask face face of metal version? Of course, not that'd be malpractice on the part of the his his lawyers to allow that to happen. So why well because he's guilty. That's only this because he's killing. The presidency as well. We we know we know why why why? Because it no look if he's done if he was trying to have stuck to us as he did a horrible job because he's done. He's allow official then still corrupt official. He's not incompetent the reality. Is he is not he's upset about it. He's vetted vented about it. He said some intemperate things, but he has never done anything to obstruct this investigation. Fire komi? Well, there's a whole lot of reasons incompetence and probably be a big thing comment. The Democrats Lardy clap. Yeah, come on. I mean, this is a guy who said a comedy of errors. The election is what was that? He said in an interview that he fired him because of the Russia probe. The Trump says lots of things you're sitting here telling me that you actually believe the president would actually said this because most of the time you tell me you think he lies all the time. When he's when he likes about facts, he tells the truth about. Transplant so horrible things about women because that's what he thinks about women. It's he gets facts he likes change your life. So she does every night. And your here. Doing right now. Are you? The president says things on the heat of the moment that sometimes don't accurate reflect reality. That's why you don't put him in front of this. Clear. You don't want him. Semi Toby numbered. You put your client road. No, you fight like hell, no way. You'd never you'd go to the nail. It never walk a client into Bob Muller's office when he was the US attorney in San Francisco, I cut a deal with with the office, a new the client was telling the truth, and I had no qualms at all about putting him there. Other times, you don't we? Time. We know Trump is a born liar. That's nobody on this panel. His lawyers won't put them on. And rick. I'm surprised that you because it's not just talk. It's action by Donald Trump. It's firing Komi. It's helping his son cook up that foamy statement. It's his constant attacks on Muller and the rule of law. We have long this country. It applies to all of us. The president anyone tacking Muller's destruction if not ours if he fired combing he took these other actions, he cooked up there were lots of reasons to fire Janesville did it if he got interfere with this investigation. Lots of fire Jimmy did it to interfere with this investigation to benefit himself, his friend family member and she'll say obstruction of Justice. That's a big and listen Impala tell you the Clinton said lots of nasty things about Ken Starr, the friends said lots of nasty things. That's right. And it's not all the time. They banged on him pretty hard. I think Senator right? That's not obstruction of criticized Muller either. There's an important difference. The president is states when it was Bill Clinton had absolutely no legal power to fire can start. He was unchecked unbalanced and independent cop wholly independent, right? Mr. Muller's and agree with you works directly for Donald Trump in now, the one go between his Mr. Whittaker who is I think going to do everything again as he promised to start this investigation. That's why I'm back. If you're if you're difference attorneys. I imagine one of the difficulties is you're not sure if your client is telling you, the factual verge could be current version. I was just saying Gloria. Why do we believe that? He's being one hundred percent factual with his attorneys. I we know is said things to senators would turn not even people who are in his confidence. And in his circle he doesn't have a track record necessarily a being one hundred percent truthful within I think that's a very big question. Here is the norm. Pose the question if your client normally walk them down all Trump never. All the time. Abnormality of the situation that we're in Bill Clinton had fired Janet Reno should. Director fired his own attorney general he's hired somebody who's stooge for him. We knew the view he's. Lisi? His view that he wants his sweeties Muller tower. Attacks. The sky was US attorney is and what came on this network. It said if you were going to do this. How would you do? Post pundit on this network. All right one. Thank everybody. Good non election coverage. Here we go. Again, the deadline has come and gone in Florida. How many times have we said this over the years with one raise close enough to Henry count? There's late words that the recount in the state's second largest county won't count because they missed the deadline by two minutes. Details on that head. Remember to create an ad like this one visit pure winning dot com slash CNN. Well, it's all happening again, Florida on the hanging chads two thousand but with all the drama including deadline missed by a matter of minutes. The headline is the US Senate race in Florida is now headed to a hand recount. It is just that close. Rick Scott leading Bill Nelson by point one five percent. The governor's race is outside the margin for a hand recount. That's where we stand after the deadline for the machinery counts past few hours ago. But in Broward County the recount didn't count because they missed the deadline by two minutes is ri- nobles talahassee with the latest. I what are you learning about the next phase of the recount? What Anderson we've entered a period of time now where these races have really consolidated after that. I oughta Matic recount of all the machines machine recount. And now we know that the Senate races within a quarter of a percent, which is pretty small in the context of eight and a half million votes. So what's going to happen? Now is all sixty seven counties will begin a second phase of counting. And they're gonna manually recount all the under votes and the over vote that took place across the state. This is a pretty exhaustive process. But they have to have it done by Sunday with the goal of determining whether or not we can definitively say who won this election. I should also point out Anderson that we were keeping very close eye on the governor's race as well. That was within a half a percentage point after the the count finished on Saturday that race pretty much stayed as what we expected the numbers did not change that much at all. So the governor's race that count is over and we can safely say that. Rhonda Santa's will be the next governor of Florida. But it's the Senate race. It's still hangs in the balance numbers have really not changed all that much since the initial count. And so Bill Nelson has any hope of overcoming Rick Scott in this race. They're going to have to really need some sort of a miracle during this hand recount, how is it possible? That Broward County missed the deadline by two minutes. It's really head-scratching Anderson. And nobody really has a good explanation for exactly what happened. And I do think for the people Florida. This is pretty disappointing. It wasn't just Broward County. It was also Palm Beach county that did not make the deadline time. And also Hillsborough county was also unable to make it through the machine recount, essentially, what this means is that they're going to revert back to the initial numbers from the first count that ended last Sunday. So it's not as if those votes aren't going to count, but they just did not get that exhaustive second run through the machines. Just make sure all those numbers matched up. Again. We actually know those numbers from Broward County, they didn't really change all that much. In fact, they were better for Rick Scott when you actually look at the data, but it's really just more about the process and making sure that each one of these voters has their voice completely heard, according to the rules, and that just didn't happen here in Florida this time around all right, right nobles. Appreciate it with legal analyst, Jeffrey Toobin. David boies, who was lead counsel for gore in the legal battle over the two thousand presidential election. David you, obviously know more than just about anyone when it comes to Florida recount, so besides maybe some unwanted flashbacks. You may be going through what goes through your mind when you look at what's happening there over the last several days, I think a couple of things one thing that goes to mind is that things have actually gotten better. We don't have hanging chads. We don't have disputes about whether something ought to be counted because it was dimpled or not dimpled or you don't have the sunlight test with holding up the Mike them defined glass. You now have optical character recognition about it's that are something that you can look at and determine the voter intent manual recounts has gotten better the second thing is this is not nearly as close as two thousand as opposed to tighten to make up four five hundred votes. They're talking about making up more than ten thousand votes. And to do that you're going to have to find that something happened with those machines in terms of not counting all the votes figure that out with a manual recount. But I think the chances that this. Vote changes is much less than it was in two thousand Jeff you made that that point as well. And certainly the what we've seen now in the governor's race in Florida backs up. What would David is saying that it was middle school? I think it was just a handful of votes difference. What do you make though Jeff of the fact that Broward County and others miss the deadline by two minute. Well, two things one is the Florida electoral system is still awful and run by incompetent people with inferior machines. It also has laws that are way too. Strict. I mean, there is absolutely no reason why two minutes should make a difference in whether a more accurate town is reported. So I mean there remain problems in in the Florida electoral system. But as David said the system is better than it was eighteen years ago. The punch card system is far worse than the optical scan system that's in place now. But it's still no bargain. What with what they have David? Do you have recommendations for changes that could be made to make it even better? Well, I think for one thing, I think Jeffrey's entirely, right? The deadlines are too strict some of these counts just can't get done in that time available. I think a second thing is they've gotta have working machines Palm Beach county doesn't have working machines. I actually think that that. If you take this court decision Bush gore seriously that presents an equal protection argument. Because one of the things the court said is that you can't have people in one county not having as good a chance of having their votes counted as people in other counties, and that's exactly what happens when you have defective machines in one of the county's like doing Palm Beach. So I think I think two things one. One is give them realistic amount of time as second make sure the machines are working the optical scaring scanning ballot system is a good balance. But the machines have got to work, and I think that's easily correctable with a trivial amount of money. Gyp good. Well, if I could just reiterate a point David made earlier, I mean, the Bush gore recount in Florida was a matter of ultimately a little more than five hundred votes, the margin here going into the manual recount is more than twelve thousand votes. That's a close election from a political perspective. But it is not a close election as recounts go. I mean, the odds that that Nelson can make up this in a manual recount strike me as close to zero. I mean that is a lot of oats for a recount, and I don't think anyone should be under the impression that this election is on the verge of being overturned. That's right. Said that unless there's some massive problem with machines that that making up this kind of a deficit is nearly impossible. I think that's right. That doesn't mean we shouldn't do it though. I mean everybody who's ahead always tries to end the game. I mean people are head at the end of the eighth inning baseball game. When try to make it an eight in baseball game. This this is situation in which the Florida law is absolutely clear. You've got a manual recount if you're within a certain margin. Clearly, we within that margin. Nobody disputes that. And people ought to let the process work out. Not try to change the rules in the middle of the game. I think the chances that it's going to change our very very small. I think Jeffrey's one hundred percent right about that. But people ought to let the process play out and not try to truncated, David boies. Jeff toobin. Thank you very much. Appreciate it. One more one more piece of election news, bring you call in Maine second can congressional. Democratic challenger Jared golden defeating the Republican incumbent without it brings the number of democratic pickups to thirty three seats seven races all of them close for me to be called by CNN. So stay tuned up next. President Trump facing heat for skipping one Veterans Day event overseas and not holding one here on US soil visits US marines day. I'll talk over Senator Tammy Duckworth, Iraq war vet. Mark Manders five on this edition of our Joe, I'll be joined by sir. Hughes's Titus battle. Off my game. Be more offensive on the ball ways. Beth improve. Playmaking billiard. Well. Five now at apple podcasts and Fatah. You know, the prisoner's been facing criticism for not holding Veterans Day event on Monday and for skipping. Visit to American cemetery and France over the weekend to commemorate the end of World War One today without his backdrop, he went to a pair of military events. This after noon, he attended a White House veterans conference in the first lady also visited the marine barracks in Washington barracks, supports both remonial and security missions in the nation's capital earlier. I spoke about this and more with democratic Senator Tammy Duckworth army national guard veteran who lost both legs when her helicopter was shot down in the Iraq war. I wonder what you make of the president's visits the marine barracks. Given that he had no public events honoring veterans and Veterans Day and skip that World War. One remembrance in France on Saturday g think this was sort of in response to the criticism he received. Oh, I think it's one hundred percent and him trying to make up for the fact that he couldn't be bothered to stand in the rain to honor our our heroic dead on on Veterans Day that he's had a terrible week. And he is trying to pay credit for things that he's not done and turn cover the fact that he's had a miserable week, and he's not been there for veterans. He obviously, you know, oftentimes the strength of the us military his commitment to troops. Does it concern you that he has yet to visit troops in any act of combat zone? Is that hard to square with what he says about his support for the military. There's a lot of things that he says that doesn't square with what he says he does for support the military and exactly if he truly cared about the troops. He would go visit them in a combat zone. He would go. Oh to this Metairie. Whether it was raining or snowing to honor our hero like dead. He certainly wouldn't send five thousand troops to Texas to defend against a caravan that is on its way to Tijuana, and we have eight thousand veterans who have not yet gotten their payments for their housing allotments while they're going back to school in the GI Bill. He's failed miserably when it comes to supporting our troops and their families talking about the troops being sent to the border of defense. Mattis said yesterday when talking to the troops being sentenced on the border and the role that they'd be playing. We're talking about them. He said that they'll be there as quote confidence builders sort of us military's a lot of priorities is confidence building one of them. Now, if anything those five thousand troops being sent to the Texas border when the caravan a thousand miles away is headed towards California and every sent to the border over thanksgiving and potentially over Christmas is if anything it's it's going to bring. The morale. It does nothing if you did this as a political statement, and it doesn't help out troops that doesn't help readiness. If he truly wants to support our troops, and he should pay more attention to making sure that we actually have a strategy for North Korea that he provides the funding to support veterans those going back to school and the GI Bill for homeless veterans that he feels a forty thousand vacancies that exists within the VA right now in programs that have everything to do with homelessness to mental head. I wanna ask you about something that you posted on Twitter that I saw November twelfth you said you were celebrating your quote alive day. Can you just explain what that is? And why you call it that well my alive day is the anniversary of the shootdown the day that I was wounded it could either be a day of great sadness looking back at my injuries or could be a day of really celebration. And thanks, and I give thanks on that day. I choose it to be my second birthday to think the men who saved me, they are my moral, compass, I live every day and every decision I make is to make sure that they're never embarrassment. Shame for the work that I'm doing now in the Senate. To live up to the sacrifices that they made, you know, it's it's it's a real time to really think back on. What are we doing here? What can we do to support troops? What can we do to make sure that military men and women and their families will supported joke worth our? Appreciate your time. Thank you. Thank you.
