tv CNN Newsroom With John Berman and Poppy Harlow CNN March 23, 2017 7:00am-8:01am PDT
a couple of weeks ago that we'll hopefully get answer to tomorrow. >> reporter: did you show the committee members the data, the information, the intelligence report that you saw that you didn't show them that? >> we don't have it. so it's just a matter of time. hopefully we get some or part of what i've seen. >> reporter: did this come from the white house? did this information that you got come from the white house? >> as you know, we have to keep our sources and methods here very quiet. i've told the american public several times that we want people to come to us, to bring us information if they have it. over the course of this investigation, we've had many sources who have come to this committee. and as you can imagine, some, many, don't want you to know, they don't want anyone to know who they are. i think you guys in the press understand this, you have your own sources. >> reporter: but there's suspicion that this is engineered by the trump administration to muddy the waters and give them political cover. >> look, i came out here and
briefed you guys yesterday. i said, this is what i'm going to do, so that you knew. the president didn't invite me over. i called down there and invited myself, because i thought he needed to understand what i saw and needed to try to get that information because he has every right to see it. i have a health care committee i have to get to. i apologize. i'm sorry. [ inaudible question ] just a judgment call. i mean, you know, it was -- i mean, there was a lot going on yesterday, and it was a judgment call on my part. at the end of the day, sometimes you make the right decision, sometimes you make the wrong one, but you've got to stick by the decisions you make. all right. thank you, guys. >> reporter: you deny that any of this information came from the trump administration? >> look, on this committee we are not going to ever reveal
sources, if not who's ever going to come down to the committee. thanks, guys. >> all right. that was house intelligence committee chair devin nunes, the day after he made this big announcement that he's seen data that members of the trump transition team were picked up on incidental conversations and he went to the white house to tell the president that. he would not reveal where he got the information, reporters asked him directly did you get it from the white house and nunes refused to say where he got the information. our manu raju, i think i recognized manu's voice, asked him directly if he showed the members of the intelligence committee that data that made him so angry and he said he didn't have it. manu, we have manu here, is that how you read it? >> reporter: yes, he did not
show the members of the committee the information. it looks like it was just a discussion about what he actually saw. so he said we don't have those documents. when i asked him, do you have those documents, have you shown those members, he didn't have those. also he refused to say how he got this information. now, as you know, there's been a lot of suspicion, particularly among democrats, that perhaps this was engineered by the trump administration, by the white house to give him information, to muddy the waters, to create a narrative that president trump was being surveilled, being spied on, and to give him some political cover. now, he did not quite -- he didn't say where this is coming from because he said we need to protect our sources and methods. he said that we as an intelligence committee take that very, very seriously, which is why we can't reveal exactly how this came from. and of course he defended his move to actually go and talk to the president before discussing
it with democrats, even the ranking democrat on the committee. he said it was a judgment call to do that the way that he did. so he's still a bit on the defensive, but this coming after this meeting, which is actually still ongoing, as they discuss this key issue. it sounds like they want to continue to move forward with this investigation even as a lot of democrats believe he may have compromised it. >> all right, manu raju, thank you very much. it is interesting that he didn't show this to the committee and he says he saw it yesterday. >> i don't think we even know what "this" is. it's something. there's some physical thing that he saw. >> we'll see if we get any response from democrats on the committee, including the ranking democrat, adam schiff. let's bring in our congressional correspondent sunlen serfaty. there's more than one big story on capitol hill today. the other is, this is the day the house is supposed to vote on the gop health care bill. how are things looking? >> reporter: this is indeed the day, poppy. i have to say, there is still so
much left in the air at this point, before they hold that vote. so the situation is best described as fluid. we have the house republican leaders who were going to brief their full caucus this morning about the bill. that meeting has been delayed, postponed until potentially later today. that indicates that a deal has not yet come together. so you have this push to get to a vote at some point tonight. but there's no time for that, there's no framework for the bill. it has not gotten out of the rules committee. the cbo has not scored it yet, the members want to see the score before the final vote in the house. a lot needs to come together in a short period of time. you have this frantic effort on capitol hill to pull together and cobble together the votes that they need. meantime you have president trump really trying to make some more personal pleas. we know he is calling members on their cellphones, lobbying for votes.
even at this point. and out with a new twitter video this morning. >> you were told that you could keep your plan and keep your doctor. you were given many, many false stories. the fact is you were given many lies. go with our plan. it's going to be terrific. you're going to be very, very happy. call your local representative. call your senator. let him know that you're behind our plan. >> reporter: a lot of last-minute moves in the wheeling and dealing on capitol hill. leadership worked well into the night last night briefing members about potential changes that are being considered. a lot of those revolving around health care benefits, which would attract freedom caucus
members but risk losing moderates. speaker ryan met with moderates last night, one member indicating to cnn that it was very tense last night, a lot of moderates not happy with the changes. it's two steps forward, one step back, as they inch toward a potential final vote tonight, john, poppy. >> fascinating to watch this as it develops, sunlen serfaty on capitol hill for us. we have a lot going on on capitol hill. joining us, a senior republican strategist. a couplist for "the new york post." and former democratic congressman from new york, steve israel. doug, in addition to working for the rnc you worked for leadership on capitol hill. you have the scars to approve it, right? you must be having a nervous tic
today watching this internal battle going on. where do you think it stands, the idea that the white house and leadership might give the freedom caucus what they want on essential benefits, will that get this bill over the finish line or might it alienate too many moderates? >> i don't know yet. the news that the conference committee meeting has been cancelled means the vote is, as sunlen serfaty said, fluid. as congressman israel knows very well, i'm still trying to get, we have a long history in the gop of losing votes and pulling votes and not being able to get the 218 votes. one dynamic is the republican president, obviously donald trump has been on a massive charm offensive. the white house bowling alley has been in overdrive. he saw the youtube video this morning. if donald trump pushes this through, it will be a massive success for him. if he's unable to, his agenda is
imperilled, tax reform will be harder, and republicans will have a real problem demonstrating whether they can governing and whether a charm offensive turns into scorched earth. watch president trump's twitter feed. >> we always do. when we talk about stripping essential benefits, these are things like covering maternity care, ambulance services, things like -- >> mental health coverage. >> mental health coverage is another big one. this may help them through the house with the freedom caucus. the question is what happens in the senate. let me read you reporting from our lauren fox, a house goper coming out of the meeting with paul ryan last night saying, "we're going to railroad this thing through, there's going to be even more people pissed off, our constituents, the
stakeholders." that's what they're up against. >> the sausage making is always a mess. there's so many moving parts. these guys come from so many different districts with diverse needs and populations. i agree with doug, if trump is able to get this over the finish line, i think that is an incredibly big win for him. it shows that this sort of disrupter that they put into the white house is actually very effective when it counts. you know, the last whip count that i've heard is, it's really close but leaning toward being able to pass. the problem i think for the president with the freedom caucus is, they have a tendency to move the goalpost once they get something that they want, then they're like, no, no, we want something more. i think that's his biggest challenge right now. >> steve israel, you are a democrat, yet if the president is able to work with the republicans and get this through the house today, just the house
today, because god knows what happens tomorrow once it gets to the senate, but if it gets through the house today, does the president deserve some credit for twisting arms? >> there's no question if the house passes it, i don't think today, i think tonight, and there are all indications that it will be a late vote, but if the house passes it, that is a tactical win for the president. but then the hard work begins. it goes to the senate. you've got some senators who cannot tolerate a reduction in medicaid in their states. so it becomes repackaged, reformulated there, comes back to the house. look, i've been talking to my house most of this morning, and here's where we stand, from what i'm told. number one is, the bottom line is nobody knows what the bottom line is. now you need 215 votes to pass with one democratic absence. we know the rules committee has been meeting for 12 hours. they still don't have a bill. we can expect a late vote. this, john and poppy, will be like a marathon college basketball game that goes abortiback
and forth but it's the last two minutes that count. doug lived through those two minutes, i've lived through those two minutes. that's where it gets interesting. >> you've said the force of party discipline is incredibly strong, only in the rarest of instances has party discipline failed. does party discipline win the day? >> nobody can predict what's going to happen with any certainty including the speaker of the house or the president of the united states. party discipline usually prevails. the controversial vote that i remember that was put on the floor was the t.a.r.p. bill. the bill went down, so did the dow jones, and it had to be voted on together. here is what i think counts, here is where you see drama. in the last two minutes, you're
going to see a lot of the vote count slow down to a crawl. democrats will put their votes on the board very early. republicans who are voting yes will put their votes on the board very early, they want to try and show there's quick action to get to 215 votes. but then it slows to a crawl. that's where the carrots come out, the sticks come out. if you're a lean yes, you're leaned on. that's where you get that last minute horse trading. and what it comes down to is this. if you're one of those members looking at that voting board, not sure where you're going to go, it comes down to are you going to vote with your party or are you going to vote with the politics of your district? usually when that happens, party discipline prevails. >> or are you going to vote with your pocketbook, the koch brothers won't give me money if i don't vote this. still to come, cnn's
exclusive reporting into links between the trump campaign and russia. also -- >> breaking news out of london, isis claiming responsibility for the attack that killed three people. we'll have the very latest. he's a nascar champion who's she's a world-class swimmer who's stared down the best in her sport. but for both of them, the most challenging opponent was... pe blood clots in my lung. it was really scary. a dvt in my leg. i had to learn all i could to help protect myself. my doctor and i choose xarelto® xarelto®... to help keep me protected. xarelto® is a latest-generation blood thinner... ...that's proven to treat and reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots from happening again. in clinical studies, almost 98% of patients on xarelto®

cnn has learned new details into the fbi investigation into potential links between individuals associated with the trump campaign and the russian government. >> let's bring in our crime and justice producer who broke this story along with evan perez. >> the fbi has information that associates of donald trump communicated with suspected russian operatives to possible coordinate the release of information damaging to hillary clinton's campaign. fbi director james comey made his bombshell announcement on monday before congress that the fbi is investigating that
information which includes human intelligence, travel, business, and phone records and accounts of in-person meetings. the information is raising suspicions of fbi investigators that coordination may have taken place, although officials cautioned the information was not conclusive. the fbi would not comment, nor would the white house, although trump officials have denied there is any evidence of a collusion. >> shimon, this gives us more insight into what we heard fbi director comey say on monday. >> that's right. if you recall, comey said the investigation includes looking into trump associates. he explained the legal standard for the fbi to look into this. take a listen. >> don't you need some action or some information besides attending a meeting, attending a conference where a picture was
taken, before you're open to investigation for counterintelligence by the fbi? >> the standard is, i think there's a couple of different at play. a credible allegation of wrongdoing or reasonable basis to believe that an american may be acting as an agent of a foreign power. >> one law enforcement official said information suggests, quote, people connected to the campaign were in contact. and it appeared they were giving the thumbs up to release information when it was ready. but other u.s. officials who spoke to cnn say it's too early to tell from the information gathered so far, since at this point it's mostly circumstantial. the fbi cannot yet prove that collusion took place. but the information suggests that collusion is now a large focus of the investigation. >> shimon, what about who is being investigated? do we know exactly at this point? >> we don't know exactly, john. what we do know is four people who have some attachment to the trump world, to the trump orbit, have been under scrutiny.
it's michael flynn, paul manafort, roger stone, and carter page, for their contacts with russians known to the u.s. intelligence. all four have denied improper contacts. we've also learned that one of the issues the fbi now faces is that communications between trump's associates and russians have stopped in recent months, given the focus of all the media coverage on russia. we've also been told that some russian officials have changed their communications methods, making it a little more difficult for the fbi to conduct their surveillance. >> shimon probikupecz, thank yo very much. we saw house intelligence committee chairman devin nunes make those remarks. yesterday he went to the white house, saying he told them that trump or his team were incidentally connected.
he said this had nothing to do with russia, and claimed this was normal, legal collection. this does not have anything to do, he says, with the wiretapping claims that president trump made against president obama. nunes says there is still no evidence of that. this is a drip-drip of information, now fueling calls for an independent investigation into the trump campaign team and potential ties to russia. do we know what drove him to go to the white house? did the white house call him, did he go to the white house? >> reporter: unclear if anyone from the white house reached out to the chairman. we know he said he was alarmed by what he found in these intelligence reports. one associate said he was steaming. that may partially explain why he decided to talk to the press, and then to the white house, and then to the press at the white house, before talking to people, to democrats on the house intelligence committee. i can tell you guys that right now, according to my colleague manu raju, the meeting is still
ongoing. it's possible that more could come out. it's possible we could hear from the top democrat on that committee. but chairman nunes did come out and speak to reporters belierie. he said he told reporters he did not show the committee the records of what he received. he refused to say how he got the information. and he said when asked why he went to the white house, that it was a judgment call on why he told the press and the president before he told democrats. here is more of what he had to say about that yesterday. let's take a listen. >> it concerned me enough to have to notify the president because it was him and his transition team that were involved in this. it's not fair for him not to know what's in these reports while the past administration and many agencies do know. >> reporter: so he was arguing it was fair for the president to be told about this. that still may not answer the question of democrats on the committee who say, fine, tell the president, but certainly tell us. and you also of course have
democrats raising questions about just why he did feel the need to personally brief the president. here is the top democrat on the house intelligence committee, adam schiff, talking about that. take a listen. >> the chairman will need to decide whether he is the chairman of an independent investigation into conduct which includes allegations of potential coordination between the trump campaign and the russians or he is going to act as a surrogate of the white house, because he cannot do both. >> reporter: he cannot both chair this committee that is tasked with looking into russian meddling in last year's election and into potential ties between trump associates or surrogates and russian officials while at the same time heading to the white house to keep the president abreast of every development. adam schiff in that same press conference says this makes an even stronger case that there needs to be an independent commission, an independent investigation into all of this. nunes' actions raise questions about whether that committee can
credibly look into this. and one more thing, guys, chairman nunes' also raise other questions. who are these other officials or foreign persons that members of the trump team were in contact with that would have been subject to what he called multiple fisa warrants? so in the end, it doesn't seem that chairman nunes' actions helped out in the white house in the way it seemed he was trying to do. >> athena jones, thank you very much. it's also odd that he didn't show whatever he was reading to his committee in an hour-long meeting just this morning. >> just had a meeting, manu raju asked him outright, did you show everyone else what you read, he says no, i don't have it. very confusing. we'll have more after the break.
he's a nascar champion who's she's a world-class swimmer who's stared down the best in her sport. but for both of them, the most challenging opponent was... pe blood clots in my lung. it was really scary. a dvt in my leg. i had to learn all i could to help protect myself. my doctor and i choose xarelto® xarelto®... to help keep me protected. xarelto® is a latest-generation blood thinner... ...that's proven to treat and reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots from happening again. in clinical studies, almost 98% of patients on xarelto® did not experience another dvt or pe. here's how xarelto works. xarelto® works differently. warfarin interferes with at least six blood-clotting factors. xarelto® is selective... ...targeting just one critical factor, interacting with less of your body's natural blood-clotting function. don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor as this may increase risk of blood clots. while taking, you may bruise more easily, or take longer for bleeding to stop. it may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding.

indicates that associates of president trump communicated with suspected russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to hillary clinton's campaign. i want to bring in bob baer, cnn intelligence security analyst. bob, thank you for being with us. that news broken by a terrific cnn reporting team. my question is simple. how serious is that if in fact it's true, and how difficult would it be to prove? >> it's very serious, john. a couple of years ago i worked for the united nations in an assassination investigation. we were using metadata, not human sources. once you take this metadata and compare it with the e-mail hacking, visits, credit cards and the rest of it, you can get an indictment. at the very least on rico. so if they're looking at the leaks and the -- i mean, the e-mail hacking, visits of carter page, roger stone and the rest of it, you can pretty well draw a picture and reach the
conclusion that there was collusion. this is very serious. and exactly what the fbi is doing. and this is not to mention the national security agency probably has at the very least incidental collection on the trump aides, which gives you a whole picture. this could be very serious. of course we're not seeing the evidence, but we will eventually. >> and this reporting does not, you know, prove collusion, right, this is the fbi having information that indicates these connections and a potential effort to hurt the hillary clinton campaign. but john mccain was asked about this this morning. here is what he said. >> i've been around this town long enough to know, when there's something of this consequence and this enormity, there's always additional information that comes out before it's concluded. we're already see that, by the way, this morning with the, quote, allegations that there was coordination between the
trump campaign and the russians. and i've seen them before, matt. there's more to come. >> he says there's more to come. this is also the same senator that said there are more shoes to drop just a few weeks ago. you have such in-depth experience with the intelligence community, how often have you seen a lot of smoke, no fire? rarely. the fbi hates these fishing -- hates fishing expeditions, i don't think this is one. they wouldn't be pursuing this unless they have evidence, they would have dropped it a long time ago. they hate investigating a sitting president or his aides. and there's other parts of this investigation that we're not looking at. like deripaska, the olioligarch that was paying manafort. he was deep connections with the fsb and is an arm of the fsb in many ways. so manafort was getting paid in
essence from the russian government. he can deny it all he wants, but anybody who knows these oligarchs will tell you the same thing. >> manafort does deny it, we did a piece about that in the last hour, there's a lot going on with that. let me ask you about devin nunes, house intelligence committee chair, who said that trump campaign officials were picked up in incidental communications. how unusual is it from your perspective for him to then tell the president that, and does that call into question the ability of this committee to do what it's supposed to do? >> well, my opinion is, he's providing cover for the president, for his claims that the gchq, the british intelligence service was tapping his phones, or obama. incidental collection is misunderstood by a lot of people. it happens all the time. your phone, my phone, has probably in the last couple of years, at least once, subject to
incidental collection. it's the other person we're calling or who is calling us whose phone is tapped. this is a red herring, to mix a metaphor, that's not going to hold water in the long run. incidental collection is just unimportant. the fact is that nobody was tapping trump's phone. >> bob baer, great to have you with us, appreciate your perspective, sir. >> thank you. breaking news out of london right now, we learned moments ago an american man, an american, is among those who were killed in the terrorist attack. his wife was injured in that attack. and now isis is claiming responsibility.

we do have breaking news out of london, we've learned an american is one of the victims of the attack outside of parliament. kirk cochran of utah was killed in that attack. you see him there with his wife melissa. she was injured in the attack. they were in london celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary. other news on this today, isis is now claiming responsibility for this attack, saying one of its followers was behind it. britain's prime minister says the person who carried it out was born in that country. nick paton walsh following the developments for us on the streets of london. nick, what are you learning? >> reporter: john, this close to the horrifying spot where kirk cochran lost his life. this is westminster bridge. only in the last hour reopened. it was down this bridge that the one attacker, a british national, said to have been known by british security services for previous links to extremism but considered a,
quote, peripheral figure, according to british prime minister theresa may, that's where he drove his 4x4 car. this is presumably where he hit kirk cochran and melissa, his wife. just imagine, they're on their 25th wedding anniversary celebrating in london, this popular tourist spot. she is now in hospital with a broken rib and other injuries to her limbs and a cuff to her face as well, we understand. this too where the third victim we know of, a spanish citizen, a 43-year-old, a spanish teacher who lived in the uk for some time, lost her life as well. further down here is where that car continued and crashed into the fence, the attacker jumping out, running around the corner. that's where his third victim was killed by a knife, we believe, to the chest. this the scene of horrifying acts of brutality.
the video in fact showed some of the victims flung into traffic by the car, another fell into the river thames nearby, rescued afterwards. this also a crime now claimed by isis, by their affiliated news agency which they have used in the past to claim various disgraceful acts they wanted their name attached to. we have no idea if this attacker had previous connections to isis or if isis is trying to claim connections to the crime. the scene behind me here, really i think gives you an idea, almost exactly 24 hours ago, the scene where this crime was committed. tourists here, relaxed, some of them frankly oblivious to what's gone on 24 hours ago, making their way towards big ben, that enormous clock in the center of the united kingdom, the heart of democracy and government here, the how was parliament, the scene of this devastating crime, the worst to hit the united

issued an apology to members of his own committee, this for some of his actions connected with his release of his claim that trump officials were picked up in incidental communications. this happened in a meeting. democratic congresswoman jackie speier of california was in that meeting. congresswoman, thanks for being with us. what did the chairman apologize for? >> that's not clear. adam schiff first raised the issue, why didn't you tell me, why didn't you go through channels here within the scif, a secure area where we do our business. after a few minutes, devin nunes did apologize in a generic way. >> did the chairman, congresswoman, show you and your committee members the evidence, the intelligence that he says he
looked at yesterday that made him so, quote, steaming mad, according to our reporting, that he ran to the white house to tell the president? did he show your committee that is investigating all of this, that evidence? >> that evidence is supposed to be with the committee tomorrow. so we'll be able to look at the evidence. but i think we've got to go back in time to march 15th, when on tucker carlson's show, he said that he was submitting something to the committee that would somehow vindicate him relative to the wiretapping. >> the president, you're talking about. >> i'm talking about the president. i think this is a badly-produced play, and the president is no william shakespeare. >> so it seems to me, correct me if i'm wrong, you're indicating here that you think that the white house gave this to nunes and this was somehow coordinated. nunes said in his presser less than an hour ago that "i'm not
going to talk about sources but this isn't from the white house, the white house didn't call me." >> if it's not from the white house, it's from someone within the agency. you might recall at the hearing earlier this week, all the republicans could talk about were the horrible leaks coming from the intelligence community. now he's using a leak from an intelligence community as he sees fit. i'm absolutely convinced this either came from the white house or it came from the cia. >> those are two wildly different things. first of all, if it's the white house, there may possibly be a political connection there. if it's from the cia, maybe it's the cia responding to a request from the chairman. you say you "i think." do you know? have you seen evidence? >> no, i don't know. i would suggest it would be mike pompeo or the white house. >> i just want to be crystal clear here. we appreciate you weighing in because obviously you are an expert on this committee and the
substantia subject. but you have no evidence that it was either mike pompeo or someone in the white house? >> the only evidence we have is a statement by the president on a fox tv show in which he said i'm submitting something to the committee in a number of days. and he repeated it at the end of that interview as well. >> i understand that. but that doesn't, you know, connect the two, that doesn't mean that what nunes is talking about came from the president. i also want to get your take on this, as you know, cnn's exclusive reporting that the fbi has new information that indicates that associates of president trump communicated with russian operatives with the intent of harming hillary clinton's campaign. can you corroborate that? is there any evidence of that that you've been seen? >> i have not yet been given any access to the fbi files. the only persons that have access to it are the chair and the ranking member. our hope is that within short
order, the whole committee will have access to that information. >> because the ranking member last night, adam schiff, said that he's seen more than circumstantial evidence that might lead him to believe collusion. but just to be clear, he's seen things that you have not? have you talked to him about this more than circumstantial evidence? >> yes, we did talk to him about that. he says that's why he wants the entire committee to be able to be briefed on this issue, because he did say it's more than circumstantial. >> so he has seen more than you have seen. members of the committee have seen wildly different things. you say tomorrow you're going to see what nunes is talking about. you also said last night on this network, "this investigation loses all credibility unless he," nunes, "makes a profound apology." if he does not give more of an apology today, is your committee broken? can your committee move forward with a truly independent investigation? certainly politics seem very
much in play in the middle of your committee right now. >> well, we've got to have some confidence in knowing that if we're doing an independent investigation, the chair of the committee is not going to be the white house whisperer. that would be particularly damaging to the unbiased nature of this investigation. and i think the american people would see this as just a joke. and i'm not interested in being part of a joke. >> all right. congresswoman jackie speier of california, thanks for being with us. a lot there from the chairman, the word that adam schiff, she asked him for more than circumstantial evidence, and devin nunes said he would provide evidence of incidental collection tomorrow. >> a lot of headlines there from representative jackie speier from california. still to come, golfer jason day took people in surprise when

was diagnosed with 12 months to live. this is so hard. the doc said she was terminal and only had 12 months to live. i'm glad i brought her over here. it's been really hard to play golf lately and this year. it's been very, very emotional, as you can -- as you can tell. >> reporter: day has been through this before. he lost his dad to stomach cancer when he was 12 years old. and after that he went through a really tough time. but his mom took out a second morton thegage on their home in to send him to a golf academy. it certainly worked out. he brought her to ohio where she's scheduled to have surgery on friday. we of course wish her well. for the first time, team usa has
won the world baseball classic. the u.s. had never finished better than fourth place in the tournament. more can you say stroman pitched six innings of no-hit baseball. he could have played for puerto rico, but he chose to play for team usa. it looks like he made the right call. the u.s. wins big, 8-0, a huge crowd at dodgers stadium chanting "usa." march madness continues tonight. will michigan keep their run going? the wolverines have not lost a game since their plane skidded off the runway two weeks ago. they've won seven in a row. the action also continues on our sister station tbs at 7:39 eastern with number one gonzaga taking on west virginia. kansas taking on purdue. and arizona going up against the only double digit team left in the field, xavier.

"at this hour with kate bolduan" begins right now. >> announcer: this is cnn breaking news. hello, everyone, i'm kate bolduan. we do begin with breaking news on multiple fronts, on a chaotic and sure to be dramatic day in our nation's capital. first, the fate of the president's health care bill right now is hanging in the balance. the vote is supposed to be sometime today. but still no word, no announcement on when that will be. which means it could be a very late night. minutes from now, the president will host a group of skeptical republicans at the
