sure. still yes! you can get it too. welcome to the party. introducing gig-speed internet from xfinity. finally, gig for your neighborhood too. an explosive new report contradicts the u.s. attorney general about his meetings with the russian ambassador to the united states. plus, this -- after six months on the job, the press secretary sean spicer hands his resignation in in another white house staff shake-up. also ahead -- tensions on the streets lead to violent clashes in jerusalem's old city. cnn is live ahead in jerusalem. live from cnn world headquarters in atlanta we want to welcome
2:01 am
our viewers here in the united states and all around the world. i'm george howell. "cnn newsroom" starts right now. it is 5:00 a.m. on the u.s. east coast. the trump white house once again dealing with an unprecedented amount of turmoil that threatens to undermine its agenda. first, the press secretary, sean spicer, he resigned his position on friday after a stormy six months on the job. also, the administration dealing with new revelations about the u.s. attorney general attorney general jeff sessions. and discussing campaign issues with sergey kislyak at least two times last year. based on what kislyak told his boss that he was being monitored by u.s. intelligence. it's possible that kislyak was
2:02 am
misrepresenting remarks. speaking with anderson cooper about these revelation, take a listen. >> we knew about the meetings, we knew mid-march that sessions did not disclose them when he was appearing for his hearing, we were trying to figure out what was the nature of those contacts, what was discussed. so, what we learn is basically what kislyak sent back to moscow. one in april, a second in july of his contact with sessions. >> while sessions didn't seem to remember any specifics about these meetings, kislyak sent back specifics? >> yes, at the end of his conversations i assume he gets in his wacar, goes back to his residence and writes a report. that's the way most ambassadors operate. >> what did he tell them?
2:03 am
>> campaign issues, in other words, what the relationship would be like from a future trump presidency. kislyak was doing exactly his job, what was basically meeting with people in the trump campaign, trying to get information about how that campaign would actually deliver on some of its rhetoric during the campaign if he was elected and that way putin could talk about the wake of that relationship. >> the u.s. justice department said this, the attorney general stands by his testimony from just last month before the senate intelligence committee when he specifically addressed this and said that he never met with or had any conversations with any russians or any foreign officials concerning any type of interference with any campaign or election. all right. now, let's compare that to what jeff sessions said back in march of this year. listen. >> let me be clear, i never had
2:04 am
meetings with russian operatives or russian intermediaries about the trump campaign. and the idea that i was part of a, quote, continuing exchange of information, during the campaign between trump surrogates and intermediaries for the russian government is totally false. that is the question that senator franken asked me at the hearing. >> all right. let's talk more about this with james davis. james from the university of st. gallion in switzerland. dean of the school of economics and political science. it's good to have you here on "newsroom." we just heard a moment ago, jeff sessions, what does he stand right now, given that this report directly contradict what is he said that he didn't have meetings first. and that he didn't have meetings
2:05 am
about the campaign or policy issues? the story keeps changing. >> right, the story keeps changing and attorney general jeff sessions just can't clean with all of the stories. i think that's the problem with this administration. every time it's about russia, people seem to have forgotten meetings, and downplayed meetings, and drip by drip we get more. obviously, kislyak was doing his job. that's what they do, there's absolutely nothing wrong with the senator meeting with a foreign ambassador. on top of that, of course, we have the interview with the pled last week in "the new york times" where he himself suggested he's somewhat disappointed with his selection of session, i think all of this
2:06 am
taken together puts sessions in a precarious position. >> as you pointed at atime when the president offered very sharp rebuke for his attorney general. the very most recent in "the new york times." let's look at what he had to say and we'll talk about it in a minute. >> so jeff sessions takes the job, gets into the job, recuses himself. i then have -- which, frankly, i think it's very unfair to the president, how do you take a job and recuse yourself. if he would have reused himself before the job i would have said thanks, jeff, but i can't -- you know, i'm not going to take you. >> this is a president who meet s very clear loyalty is honored highly with president trump. this is a gift to president
2:07 am
trump during a time when the relationship is rocky between both men and the president is facing some serious legal questions here? >> i would ask where did this conversation come from precisely at this moment. seems to me that somebody's got it out for the attorney general. now, he has even more reason to suggest that the time might be coming to replace the attorney general. the president is clearly concerned about the russian investigation. we saw that in "the new york times" interview, the remarks he made about special counsel mueller, and trying to challenge the ability of that investigation, in particular, the investigation were to get into the financial dealings with the trump family. all of this suggests there's quite a lot concerning the white house and the president trying to get on top of his story. but, of course, he can't, because the story is now sort of taken a life on its own, largely
2:08 am
because his team has refused to or neglected to come clean on all of these issues. >> it is important you that point out that the simple fact, this leak, it's a very big -- very important bit of information that's come out. and the question where did it come from. president trump has indicated before that he wants to crack down on leaks. also important to mention the context here that there is a rocky relationship between this president and the intelligence community. you'll remember, president trump has discredited the work, hard work of many of those men and women in intelligence, even with world -- other world leaders. so, just questioning where that came from is a big -- big question for sure. i want to talk about this question, now, what happens with attorney general jeff sessions? does he stick around, or is there a chance that he could be shown the door? >> well, i think there's two questions. the first question is, you know,
2:09 am
what is the -- what does the president think about the attorney general right now? does the president still have confidence in the attorney general? and does the president think the attorney general is an asset to him? the minute he thinks he isn't, then the prospects for attorney general are probably precarious. the other question is what does the attorney general think? does the attorney general want to be the focus of this type of attention? does he think that's hindering his job? i think the position is very precarious at the moment and we'll see where it comes out. it's going to be a very interesting week. we have the president's son. we have mr. manafort, we have jared kushner all going up to the hill to testify on this russian investigation. and we'll see what comes out of this ongoing investigation. but i think the big story is, of course, this story isn't going away. >> james, stick around with us
2:10 am
for a moment, i want to set this up with our viewers and get context from you in a moment. the white house shake-up that has happened. spicer did not want to leave that job, but after six months spicer resigned on friday after mr. trump hired anthony scaramucchi as the new fbi director. >> reporter: a seismic staff shake-up, sean spicer out as press secretary as six tumultuous months. spicer submitted his resignation months after scaramucchi accepted the job as communications director. >> i like the team. let me rephrase that, i love the team. >> reporter: sarah huckabee sanders will move into spicer's role.
2:11 am
spicer decided to step down instead, a move that shocked white house staffers. a source familiar with the changes says the president has been pushing to add scaramucchi to the staff for sometime. but spicer opposed the move since scaramucchi isn't a washington insider. >> i don't have any friction with sean, i don't have any friction with reince. this is the white house. >> reporter: and downplayed tensions with steve bannon whose sources tell cnn oppose scaramucchi's hire. >> i want to keep my head in the game and work with steve bannon. >> reporter: scaramucchi pledged to advance his role that he says the media isn't paying attention to. >> i was in the oval office earlier today, we were talking about letting him be himself, letting him express his
2:12 am
identity. >> reporter: spicer first stopped up the day after the podium to lecture the media about the reports that the crowd size was significantly less than president obama's first inauguration in 2009. >> this was the first live audience to ever witness an inauguration period and around the globe. >> reporter: in recent weeks, spicer was replaced by sarah huckabee sanders. spicer's place was widely spoofed on the "saturday night live." spicer tweeting it's been a honor and privilege to serve potus @real donald trump. i will continue my service through august. >> i'm grateful to sean spicer, i wish him continued success as he moves on to pursue
2:13 am
opportunities just look at his television ratings. >> in that same vein anthony scaramucchi was asked if we could see a return to the regular televised press briefings. to that end, scaramucchi would only say stay tuned. jessica snyder, the white house. >> here's what sean spicer said early to yo fox news. >> he's been very gracious throughout this process. he wanted to bring some new folks in to help rev up communications. and after that, i gave anthony and sarah a lien start to start from so they can talk about the president's agenda and help move it forward. and he, back and forth, understood that the offer i was making was within the best interest of this administration. i thanked him for the
2:14 am
opportunity. and i'm looking forward to watching anthony and sarah do a tremendous job. >> sean spicer on fox news. again, let's make some sense out of it with james davis from switzerland. are you surprised by this? >> well, not surprised, but, of course, i think the white house is once again demonstrating that it's really amateur hour there. we have not had a white house that's been able to keep on message since the inauguration. i don't think this week was a week that they wanted to have them -- the week end with basically personnel stories, whether it's the resignation of spicer, the appointment of scaramucchi, the controversy surrounding the attorney general. and we have a white house that is not able to keep on message. the idea is we're going to bring
2:15 am
in mr. scaramucchi and he's going to bring discipline to it. but we understand that the president is the one who is bringing the undisciplined approach to the white house. and scaramucchi, whether he's going to be in a position to get this guy on message, on target. you know, ending a week like this is not helpful when you're trying to move a legislative agenda forward. so, we're getting nowhere on health reform, and personnel. >> what about the viewers who may hear what you say this is amateur hour and push back to say, well, there are changes in this position by other administrations. this happens. it's common. is that a fair question? and the other part of that is what can scaramucchi bring to the press office that hasn't already been delivered? >> no, you're absolutely right. administrations always have to adjust as they move forward. and there's nothing unusual
2:16 am
within the course of the first year of an administration, some people move in, some people move out. people don't always perform as you thought they would. but i don't think that's the issue here. the issue here is, the white house is able to put out a coherent message because largely the president is so unpalestiniu undisciplined. he contradicts himself day do day, whether a question on health care reform or policy on syria. the number -- the examples of him contradicting himself within the space of a day by twitter are numerous. so, the question is, is this guy, mr. scaramucchi, going to be able to bring the kind of discipline that's necessary to have a coherent message. and you have to have a coherent message to govern. obviously, he's been a successful businessman. he knows how to organize his
2:17 am
affairs and i think the most important asset he brings is he's obviously got the trust of the president. the question is, of course, does he know much about communication? he's made his career in hedge fund management, we'll see if he can transfer his skills into this. >> thank you for being with us. the tragic shooting of an australian woman in the city of minneapolis. we're following that because the police chief in that city has stepped down. some activists are making it clear it's not enough. plus, more violence in jerusalem and west bank. and later, u.s. tourists may have to cancel their vacations. washington's latest move against pyongyang. geico has a 97% customer satisfaction rating! and fast and friendly claims service.
