salvage his travel ban. and a warning to the citizens of the united states. >> plus, japanese prime minister shinzo abe head to the golf course after president trump confirms commitment to japan. >> welcome to our viewers here in the united states and around the world. i'm george howell. cnn newsroom starts right now.
2:01 am
it is 5:00 a.m. on the u.s. east coast. after a major defeat in court to the president's travel ban the trump administration is now exploring all of its legal options over the weekend. we now know at least one of those options is apparently off the table for now. a source familiar with the situation says the case will not be appealed to the u.s. supreme court at this time. mr. trump has suggested he might start over with a brand new travel ban possibly as early as next week or he may choose to keep defending his current directive. cnn has learned new information about the ongoing investigation into allegations raised in a collection of memos. those memos created by a former british intelligence agent for political opponents of then candidate donald trump. evan perez and pamela brown are working on this story and spoke to jim earlier. >> why is this corroboration of
2:02 am
some details contained in this dossier porpimportant? >> until now they said none of the contents had been verified but now we're being told that intelligence interaccepts of foreign nationals confirm it took place in the same details and the same days as contained in the dossier. it's based on interrepresentatiinterceptions they continue to actively investigate its contents. we should be clear that cnn has not confirmed the content of the calls or whether any of the content actually relates to then candidate trump and none of the newly learned information relates to the salacious allegations in the dossier. sean spicer said quote, we
2:03 am
continue to be disgusted by cnn's fake news reporting and i should add that the fbi, department of justice, cia and officer of international intelligence all had no comment on this story. >> there's a lot of information in the dossier. explain to our viewers what they have confirmed and not yet confirmed. >> remember the goal of the counterintelligence investigation is to figure out whether there was truth to those allegations and that russians were seeking to compromise president trump. the author is someone they had already been familiar with as having credible sources. and the memos detail about a dozen conversations between senior russian officials and other russian individuals and that was one of the starting points and one thing that the u.s. has is a collection of foreign call intercepts so they use that information to seek to
2:04 am
verify some of the alleged conversations contained in the dossier and u.s. intelligence officials are emphasizing to us that the conversations they verified were solely between those of foreign internationals but some of the individuals involved in the intercepted communications were known to the u.s. intelligence community as he havely involved in collecting information damaging to hillary clinton and helpful to donald trump. now, sources would not confirm which specific conversations were intercepted or the con tte of those conversations. >> we've been very careful throughout reporting this story going back weeks of specifying exactly what's been confirmed and what has not been confirmed. help explain to our viewers what investigators still cannot verify at this point. >> that's right. as one of the officials stressed to cnn they have not confirmed some of the salacious things in
2:05 am
the dossier and cnn has not reported any of the salacious allegations. when we first reported this story u.s. intelligence and law enforcement said they could not verify any parts of the memos and what they're now saying is they've corroborated at least some of these communicationcomm. none of the officials we spoke to would confirm they have proof of any alleged conversations or meetings between russian officials and u.s. citizens including associates of then candidate donald trump. they caution they have not reached any judgment on whether the russian government has any compromising information about the president and we should remember that president trump and his staff have repeatedly dismissed this dossier as phony. >> my colleagues talking with pamela brown and evan perez. we'll continue to follow the story. in the meantime there is another scandal involving russia that doesn't seem to be going away. this one focused on the president's national security advisor.
2:06 am
the u.s. official tells cnn michael flynn discussed sanctions with russia with the kremlin's ambassador. the alleged conversation happened in december before president trump took office while former president barack obama was in office. mr. trump appears oblivious to the allegations on friday. let's listen. >> i don't know about it. i haven't seen it. what report is that? i haven't -- >> reporting that they talked to the ambassador of russia before you were inaugurated about -- >> i'll look at that. >> the vice president of the united states, mike pence, has said in the past that flynn didn't discuss sanctions, but three administration officials say he only knew what flynn told him. a source now tells cnn the only reason flynn hasn't been fired is that the white house doesn't want to look bad. president trump is hosting
2:07 am
the prime minister of japan, shinzo abe. the two leaders and their wives had dinner at the president's resort in florida on friday night. both leaders are expected to play golf over the weekend. earlier friday in washington, the president pledged to continue close economic and security ties with japan and mr. abe also emphasized the u.s./japanese alliance. >> translator: with the birth of the trump administration the new genesis will be built between japan and u.s. in economic relations. >> the japanese prime minister's cordial visit marks something of a turn around from the u.s. presidential campaign. back then the u.s. president indicated that he would make tokyo pay more for u.s. defense aide if he were elected. now mr. trump is underscoring the u.s. commitment to japan's security. he's also changing his tone on
2:08 am
china. >> reporter: president trump with the japanese prime minister facing questions about china. seeming to offer a warning over currency manipulation. >> we will be all at a level playing field because that's the only way it's fair. that's the only way that you can fairly compete. >> reporter: yet it comes one day after the stunning statement from the white house summarizing last night's phone call between president trump and the chinese president. president trump agreed at the request of prt shi to honor our one china policy. a striking about face who has said plenty to rock that boat. >> i don't see why we have to be bound by one china policy unless we make a deal with china. >> they break the rules in every way imaginable. china, which has been ripping us off the greatest abuser in the
2:09 am
history of this country -- >> reporter: chinese president had not spoken to trump since trump took a phone call from taiwan before the inauguration. an unprecedented breach of protocol in this complex and important relationship. ensuring that the u.s. views taiwan as part of china. >> it was inevitable that we would have to back down and that makes us look weak. now, i think our partners and allies in the region are reassured with we're not about to go to war and the relationship with china is stabilized but we're also asking not to be a paper tiger. >> and now comes word from the european union after u.s. officials on the i ran nuclear deal. >> i was assured by what i heard in my meetings on the intention to stick to the full strict implementation. >> reporter: yet again this was
2:10 am
a key issue on which president trump ran for office. >> we can't continue to make deals like that horrible iran deal. >> we're going to rip up the iran deal. >> reporter: a major shift away from the rhetoric reminiscent of president obama's warning to the new administration. >> there are certain things that make for good sound bytes but don't translate into policy. >> it's clear that foreign policy is very much in the shaping stage. there is a new poll out that shows not only 29% of americans believe president trump is respected by other world leaders and only 42% now feel that the u.s. is viewed favorably in the world. cnn, the state department. >> thank you for the reporting. a lot of political story line to talk about this date. to add some context let's bring in our political reporter, live via skype in washington. let's talk about this
2:11 am
information we're learning regarding michael flynn. allegedly talking about sanctions with russia, something he has denied before, but it's information that apparently caught the president offguard and put the vice president, mike pence, in a tricky spot. >> reporter: it certainly did. u.s. intelligence agencies continue to investigate the role of russia in the 2016 election. as you know, they've produced information that said that the government in russia was behind some hacking that had the desire to see hillary clinton lose, but part of these investigations include exploring whether or not there were communications between russian officials and the campaigns. specifically, the trump campaign and what some of this intelligence reveal is that there were communications between flynn and officials in russia. and what it also revealed is that some of those talks involved sanctions. there was some desire from some people in the russian leadership
2:12 am
to see whether or not sanctions would remain in place after the election if donald trump won. >> you know, earlier, we showed a sound byte where mike pence was on the cbs face the nation where he said that, you know, he did not believe that flynn had talked to russia about sanctions, but again, we're hearing this other news. it does put the vice president in a strange position. >> reporter: it certainly does. because the vice president's role throughout much of the campaign especially later and e even this early in the administration has been the cleanup guy, but the reality is, officials are saying that pence just told the american public what flynn told pence. and we saw yesterday aboard air force one that the president himself was not as aware of the goings on regarding this investigation as reporting has suggested so whether or not flynn will experience any repercussions significantly for making the vice president look
2:13 am
unfavorable and quite frankly dishonest is not quite clear yet. >> and you know this topic will be front and center come the sunday political shows. a lot of reporters will be asking this question. let's talk about the president's meeting with the prime minister of japan, shinzo abe. this is their second time to meet face to face. the first time was when the prime minister flew to new york before the president took the oath of office but it does seem that the prime minister is making certain to be front and center to strike a strong relationship with president trump. >> reporter: absolutely. as we have seen, president trump being very aggressive early on and making sure the transpacific partnership did not move forward, we're seeing individual countries including japan reach out to make sure their individual trade relationships with the united states are not only not weakened but strengthened and so that's one of the reasons that we've seen the two connect so personally and professionally in such a short amount of time.
2:14 am
there's a lot of interest in seeing what will happen regarding national security. international affairs and a trade between the u.s. and japan. we're seeing some new poll numbers about how the u.s. president is being viewed abroad from the vantage point of americans and here's what this poll indicates that 29% of americans believe that the u.s. president donald trump is respected by other world leaders. eugene, comparing this to the former president barack obama's number of 67%, the president has some room to grow here. >> reporter: he certainly does. and americans most likely have that view because multiple world leaders including the leaders of the united kingdom, australia and china have been critical of the president already. it's also worth mentioning that many americans have unfavorable views of donald trump's administration. he actually went into office with the highest disapproval ratings of any president in american history since this
2:15 am
polling was conducted. so there's a lot of interest in seeing america's standing in terms of the area of leadership improving internationally. >> eugene scott, live via skype from washington, d.c. still ahead, the u.s. president taking steps to deport undocumented immigrants with criminal records. but one case since he took office is causing controversy. plus, french police say have stopped a terror attack and the suspects may have been inspired by isis. you're watching "cnn newsroom." only at&t offers you all your live channels and dvr on your devices, data-free.

welcome back to cnn newsroom. i'm george howell. mexico is warning the citizens in the united states of a quote new reality after a high profile deportation. a man was expelled from the u.s. on thursday after a routine check in with immigration officials the 35-year-old mother had been in the united states since she was 14 years old but she was arrested in 2008 and convicted of using a fake social security number. five years later garcia signed papers acknowledging that she would eventually be removed from the u.s. her attorney says her deportation now was due to a crackdown on illegal immigrants by the president. cnn reports on her case which some worry is the first of many
2:19 am
more to come. >> reporter: news that maricopa county's 35-year-old was deported back to mexico thursday after more than two decades in the united states spread through the undocumented community in phoenix. a mother of two teenagers, she came to the u.s. when she was 14. now in mexico she says it was sheriff who led a 2008 raid by local authorities at her work place originally meant to enforce a new controversial state law and punishing employers who hired the undocumented. the next year as a result she was convicted of a felony criminal impersonation for intentionally having a fake social security number. >> people would still do it
2:20 am
today. make up a number. >> reporter: she appealed a voluntary deportation order but in 2013 lost the battle. a final removal order was entered and acknowledged by the now convicted felon. >> she would have been told, go home, wait for the letter and then you come back to ice on the day that -- well, we tell you to come back and be ready to leave that day. >> reporter: the obama administration had more deportations than the bush administration, but they were focused on violent felons who endangered public safety. donald trump campaigned using the same terminology. >> the first thing we're going to do if and when i win is we're going to get rid of all of the bad ones. we've got gang members, killers, a lot of bad people that have to get out of this country. we're going to get them out and the police know who they are. >> reporter: but now with the executive order enhancing public safety in the interior of the united states, the emphasis has shifted. topping the list for enforcement priorities are those who have been convicted of any criminal
2:21 am
offense charged with any criminal offense or even acts that kons tuconstitute a charge criminal offense. farther down the list are those just like this mother of two, subject to a final order of removal. >> there was actually a priority list of what to follow. the current executive order seemed to do away with that priority list and make everyone a priority. so i think what we're going to see now is the immigration courts are going to go back to being backlogged. >> reporter: ice has released a statement including this paragraph. ice will continue to focus on identifying and removing individuals with felony convictions with final orders of removal issued by the nation's immigration courts. and her husband, he will now
2:22 am
have to raise the children alone. >> my wife is not a threat for the united states. she's a great person. you know, she's a good citizen regardless of her status. now to brazil and the state of santo. military police have agreed to end their week long strike that sparked violence in the streets. violence that left at least 110 people dead there. police and government officials cut a deal that will promote officers who are eligible and address concerns about the workload. but they won't receive a salary hike. the officers' wives who initiated the strike did not participate in the negotiations. in france, police say they stopped an imminent terror attack. a source says the four suspects who are french nationals appeared to have been inspired by isis. we gained exclusive access into
2:23 am
one of the suspect's apartment and spoke to his roommate. >> reporter: this is the aftermath of an early morning raid. french police say their work here prevented an imminent suicide attack. this is what's left of his home. >> translator: i'm seeing this for the first time. i didn't get home before because i went to the police. i was scared they would think i was an accomplice. >> reporter: neighbors say the police arrived at 6:00 in the morning and blew down the front door. they arrested the suspect and then started to search for evidence completely turning the place inside out. the tenant says the suspect only had two suitcases. he'd only been here for a few days. he met the 20-year-old through the local mosque. >> translator: i knew he was in a tough situation and i just wanted to help. >> reporter: he says the man kept to himself except for his teenage companion believed to be
2:24 am
his fiance who visited every so often. she's also under arrest. investigators believe she planned to join isis in syria just before the planned attack. now his neighbors are furious. how could he allow a suspected terrorist to live among them? but he says he had no idea. he's still in shock. >> reporter: you've seen the attack that happened last year in nice, the paris attacks. did you ever think that something like that could happen here? >> translator: it can happen anywhere. it's sad it's like that. now if i see someone in a tough situation i will just let them be because we don't know anymore who is the person in front of us. >> reporter: cnn. thank you for the reporting. still ahead, the new secretary of education in the u.s. is getting a lesson on twitter. her tweet from her first day on

deportation. a woman was expelled from the u.s. on thursday. the 35-year-old had been in the country since she was 14 years old but was later convicted of using a fake social security number. her attorney blamed her deportation on donald trump's crackdown on illegal immigration. the u.s. president is hosting the prime minister of japan shinzo abe at his resort in florida. the two leaders and their wives had dinner at mar-a-lago. they pledged close security ties between their countries. police in france say they've stopped an iminnocent terror attack. three men and a 16-year-old girl now in custody following a series of raids. a source close to the investigation told cnn one of the men is suspected of wanting to carry out a suicide attack and he tried to travel to syria more than a year ago. with regard to the president's travel ban the trump administration will not appeal its recent defeat in court to
2:30 am
the supreme court, at least not at this time. this is according to a source familiar with the situation. still the president has several options to try to salvage his controversial order after it was blocked by a federal judges on thursday. one alternative is to keep defending the current travel ban in the ninth circuit court of appeals but mr. trump has suggested he may simply scrap the original executive order and sign a new one that can with stand the court challenge. an iranian baby girl could have died due to the travel ban but she is set to receive surgery in the united states to treat her life threatening heart defect. four month old rashad was admitted to a hospital in portla portland, oregon on tuesday. her family had been scheduled to meet with doctors in the u.s. last sunday but they were caught up in the travel ban, that is until the government then let them in. the hospital says the little girl is undergoing preoperative
2:31 am
tests. early indications are promising for her. now back to our story about mr. trump's national security advisor. a u.s. official says micheal flynn and moscow's ambassador discussed sanctions on russia before donald trump became president. >> a bomb shell out of washington. national security advisor michael flynn discussed u.s. sanctions against russia with russ russia's ambassador before taking office. despite both flynn and the white house insisting that was not the case. sources tell cnn the communications occurred in december, just as the obama administration was announcing retaliatory sanctions against russia for interfering with u.s. elections. >> we can do stuff to you. >> some officials were characterizing what was said in the calls. it's not oh this subject came up. it is flynn was conveying a signal here, a clear signal to
2:32 am
the russian ambassador. don't overreact to these sanctions. we'll have time to revisit this later. >> the private conversations between flynn and russia's was explicit contradictions to president obama's actions. >> what i can confirm having spoken to him about it is that those conversations that happened to occur around the time that the united states took action to expel diplomats had nothing whatsoever to do with those sanctions. >> that forceful denial turns out to be false. did the vice president know he was repeating a falsehood or did general flynn lie to pence? vice president pence's office today say the reports are a problem they'll get to the bottom of adding that the vice president had only conveyed what he had been told creating tension between flynn and pence seen here earlier today. wheer's what sean spicer had to
2:33 am
say. >> the call centered around logistics of setting up a call with the president of russia and the president elect. they exchanged logistical information on how to initiate and schedule that call. that was it. plain and simple. >> flynn himself denied the contents of the call when asked wednesday by the post. >> he was adamant. he said no. in fact, he said no twice. we asked him, did you ever discuss this subject with the russian ambassador? no was the answer. and then the answer changed the next day. >> but an aide close to flynn tells cnn his boss quote, can't rule it out that they discussed the sanctions. the shocking revelations might also shed light on the likely reason vladimir putin did not retaliate against the sanctions. >> that's been past practice and you have to wonder whether he was told, hold off, don't do anything. >> soon after putin's decision in december president elect tweeted great move by vladimir
2:34 am
putin. i always knew he was being smart. was he being smart or did he have information the rest of us did not? the new u.s. education secretary took to twitter on her first day on the job just this past week. betsy devos tweeted this. day one on the job is done but we're only getting started. now where do i find the pencils? devos, whose appointment has been controversial for her perceived lack of support for public schools got this tweet in return. another twitter user responded as this. you realize how not funny this is since most teachers buy their own supplies. but i bet you're going to pink slip them anyway. and then there was this response showing a bear and the words, he has them. that came from a twitter user who is mocking devos' comments at her confirmation hearing that
2:35 am
guns might be needed in schools due to a threat from grizzlies. now to this year's super bowl champions. no date has been set for the team to be honored at the white house at this point but at least six players with the new england patriots say they won't be going. some cited their political opposition to the u.s. president donald trump. others though, less forthcoming saying only that they had other plans. former patriots wide receiver say pros fegsal athlefessional the right to decline the invitation. >> you know, the interesting -- the funny thing to me is that people always say that athletes and actors should not engage in politics. i mean, donald trump is a reality tv star. ronald reagan was -- he was an actor. i think these are precisely the people that should be leading the political example.
2:36 am
these guys -- these people are people that are role models and if you look at it, a lot of these athletes have -- have grown up in these types of neighborhoods where you know, they've come from the bottom and so they relate more to the average person than some of these politicians who are sponsored by a lot of these corporations and have a lot of money. >> in fact, sports celebrities have a long history of using their fame to make political statements. we get more on that from jason carroll. >> reporter: the president's controversial first few weeks in office have inspired a new wave of athlete activism. nba player lebron james, misty cope land, olympic medal winning fencer all speaking out against president trump's policies. super bowl champs chris long and lagarrette blount now joining at least four other new england patriot players passing on a white house meeting with the
2:37 am
president and their team later this year. >> i won't be going to the white house. >> is that a will not? no? >> i will not. >> do you want to ex- pound on that at all or -- >> it's just something -- some of the things -- some of the things that i don't feel welcome into that house. i'm going to leave it at that. >> reporter: bennett will also be a no show shortly after the patriots victory over the falcons he said he won't attend because the president has what he called too many prejudices. >> i'm not going to go. it is what it is. people know how i feel about it. >> reporter: bennett supported hillary clinton during the election and criticized trump's travel ban days after the order was signed tweeting america was built on inclusiveness, not exclusiveness. patriots' leadership firmly on

president trump. trump's make america great again displayed in brady's locker. and while brady visited the white house with his team all three times during the bush years, he skipped it during obama's term citing family commitment. that day brady spotted shopping at an apple store in new york city. cnn has reached out to the patriots and the white house for comment and has yet to receive a response. sports analyst christine brenen says her sense is that more athletes will come forward to express their political opinions. >> my sense is we're going to see more and more athletes speaking out and their fans actually supporting it and thanking them for it. >> reporter: already on the record a number of former and current nba players criticizing trump's immigration restrictions. >> i think it's [ bleep ]. i think it's absolute [ bleep ]. i mean, our country is just -- our country is home of the free and for that to happen i think is [ bleep ]. >> and when underarmour ceo

2:45 am
for these guys. it's about keeping them comfortable. later on this evening at high tide they hope they'll be able to refloat. >> it's an amazing thing to come out here and help these animals. >> the adrenaline's been keeping this afloat. >> it's very sad. >> reporter: an emotional time for all of those on this beach that will carry on into tomorrow. >> again, that report coming to us from emily cooper. for the second time in les than a week a big snowstorm is set to hit the north eastern part of the u.s. julie martin is looking at the timing of this storm and how that will compare to the last storm that came through. >> not expecting quite as much snow with this next system but still, new england will get hit once again. we're looking at sunday in
2:46 am
through monday and lots of folks traveling on monday for work, you'll be impacted by those winds. here's a recap of that last storm. it was just a couple of days ago. perry, maine, picked up 20 inches, about 50 centimeters of snow. anywhere from say a foot to a foot and a half elsewhere. it was pretty miserable out there. do you remember this video? take a look at what folks were dealing with there. downed power lines and trees. this is some video coming in from the police department there in massachusetts. by the way, winds on cape cod gusted to around 70 miles per hour. so we were dealing with hurricane force winds. we just had blizzard conditions, a real mess there in the northeast and now we're getting ready for round two. the good news is i mentioned it's not going to be as big of an event. never theless, a pretty impressive storm. taking a look at the blue on the map, this is a winter storm watch stretching all the way from maine down in through
2:47 am
