olympics. no bolt. no michael phelps. losing two once in a generation type athletes. >> 30 years old and has to retire. >> rough. >> 30. >> rough life. >> thank you, andy. >> have a good one. we have learned some fbi counterintelligence agents spent election day huddled in a war room looking for fake news. >> these types of endeavors end up beingexpeditions. >> the russia story is a fabrication. >> what's under investigation is trump campaign conspiracy with the russian meddling and possible obstruction of justice. >> investigators working for robert mueller asked the white house for documents related to former national security adviser michael flynn. >> with this much smoke, there's a fire somewhere. >> he's had a lapse of judgment and it'll get him in serious trouble. >> i have this morning for would-be leakers, don't do it. >> the leaks are real. you know what they said. you saw it. >> the leaks are a bad thing.
leaks are concerning because leaks can often compromise national security. >> we must end this culture of leaks. >> announcer: this is "new day weekend" with victor blackwell and christi paul. >> grateful to have your company, as always. we begin with breaking news with you this hour. after a national man hunt in northwestern university professor and oxford university employee have been arrested and tracked down in california. professor wyndham lathem and andrew warren are suspects in the stabbing death of a chicago koz -- man. >> trenton cornell-duranleau was found with multiple stab wounds. sarah sidner is following this story for us. good morning. how did investigators find these two? >> they turned themselves in,
quite simply. the chicago police department this morning saying they are thankful this didn't end with more death and tragedy. one man turned himself in here at the federal courthouse. professor lathem turned himself in at oakland. the other turned himself in in san francisco, to the san francisco police department. they'll both be heading to court on monday. >> reporte the nationwide man hunt is over. wyndham lathem and andrew warren are under arrest in california. both wanted for the stabbing death of trent cornell-duranleau. lathem surrendered at the federal courthouse friday night. warren turned himself in to the san francisco police department. >> running the individual's name, we confirmed he had a warrant out of chicago for murder. >> reporter: 26-year-old cornell-duranleau was found dead
on july 27th in lathem's chicago apartment. a police official said he was savagely murdered. police recovered what they believe to be the weapon in the attack. a broken knife blade. his death occurred on the same day that one of the suspects walked into a public library in lake geneva, wisconsin, and made a $1,000 cash donation in cornell-duranleau's name. >> any connection geneva? >> none whatsoever. >> reporter: on friday, lathem sent a video, which hasn't been released, to his family and friends, apologizing for his involvement in the murder, calling it, quote, the biggest mistake of his life. >> it's very typical in crimes of passion, which is what i think we can call this, for the person that committed the crime to have remorse and buiguilt afterwards. >> reporter: the big question is why? why take somebody's life? at this point though, the two
men are expected to be in court coming monday. of course, the court is closed on the weekend. victor, chris christi? >> thank you so much. baltimore is tasked with a peace challenge. in fact, not just this morning but all weekend. after community leaders and activists are enforcing a city-wide cease-fire for 72 hours. they've been in the streets, urging drug dealers and gang members to please back off, put their guns down this weekend. so far, there have been 208 homicides this year in baltimore compared to 318 for all of last year, 2016. now to the cnn exclusive. sources tell us that dozens of fbi analysts watched twitter and facebook, other social media platforms, on election day. they tracked specific accounts that they thought were spreading fake news in an effort to harm
hillary clinton. the conspiracies and false information is believed to have been pedalled by russia. >> this all happening as the special counsel for the first time asks the white house to turn over information related to the russia hacking of the 2016 election. robert mueller is reportedly looking into secret payments ousted national security adviser michael flynn took from a foreign government while he was part of the trump campaign. >> and the former russian ambassador is defending his past conversations with national security adviser michael flynn. he told reporters there were no secrets with flynn. adding that he did not discuss sanctions with anyone. flynn was forced to resign amid revelations that he discussed u.s. sanctions with kislyak the month before president trump took office. >> attorney general jeff sessions promising to shut down leaks by targeting reporters. >> good morning. i want to thank -- they cannot place lives at risk with impunity. we must balance the press's role with protecting our national
security. >> sessions is now reviewing policies on sending subpoenas to journalists, prompting questions, if he is considering taking legal action to appease the angered president after what have been tense weeks, as you've probably noticed. the fbi says it was forced to monitor facebook and twitter for russian propaganda in the 2016 election. however, they risked freedom of speech protections in the process. our pamela brown is here with cnn's exclusive reporting. >> good morning, victor and christi. our team learned some fbi counterintelligence agents spent election day huddled in a war room looking for fake news. what they could see was negative stories posted about hillary clinton. some having to do with her health that were fake stories generated from accounts with suspected russian links. according to multiple sources we've spoken with. in fact, the fbi agents could see how the fake news was
impacting the conversation online. now, the idea of monitoring for fake news was certainly uncomfortable and somewhat new territory for the fbi. as one official told me, quote, we were right on the edge of constitutionality because of, of course, first amendment protections. but it was something they believe they needed to do because it was important and better understanding how fake news played into this. what role it had and whether or not anyone in the trump campaign, in the trump world, worked with the russians in this disinformation campaign. alid a amid all this, we learned there was coordination between the fbi, department of homeland security, as well as dni, holding conference calls every three hours with the team in the white house, to discuss any possible problems. at that time though, during these conference calls, the focus was, of course, this notion that the vote could be tampered with, that the machines could be tampered with by hackers. while the fbi says that didn't happen, there is still this open question of whether the disinformation campaign by the
russians, according to the intelligence community, impacted the outcome of the election. it's something we frankly may never really know. victor and christi? >> here to discuss, lynn sweet, washington bureau chief, and eugene scott, politics reporter. good morning. >> good morning. >> lynn, i'll start with you. the former russian ambassador to the u.s., kislyak, saying this morning to a reporter saying there were no sanctions discussed with former nsa michael flynn. that does not correspond with the reporting u.s. officials say they, indeed, discussed u.s. sanctions. >> well, we will find out as the investigation unfolds. there were intercepts of conversations or real-time contemporary records of conversations that will be substantial information as to what happened. more than -- which is usually more credible than what somebody
is saying now, using recall or not addressing the question in the way you and i might understand it. so, you know, there are so many pieces of this puzzle to put together. some of this, before we even get to the question of if there's criminal actions that have been taken, is just this one part, showing how hard it is to understand. also, there are other conversations on the way to sanctions that people could have. as we know from the famous june meeting in trump tower, where trump says the conversation was about russian adoptions, well, russian adoptions is really a conversation about sanctions. that's why we had the issue. >> retaliation. >> yeah. >> eugene, let's stay with michael flynn. the "new york times" reporting the special prosecutor -- special counsel, i should say, bob mueller, is requesting documents from the white house about flynn and trying to get to the idea or the potential of his having received secret payments
from the turkish government. evidence of a broadening investigation here. >> yes, indeed. we've seen this past week that the special counsel is moving the investigation into a more financially focused area, which is something the trump administration has expressed some frustration with. the reality is, as lynn was saying, it is not that the first conversation always leads to something that people, investigators, would find problematic. there are conversations leading up to that they want to pay close attention to, to see what could have possibly happened. part of it, flynn had to repeatedly update his disclosure forms. they've shown each time that he has received more money from foreign, perhaps, governments or companies he was not open with in the initial filings. interesting to see if there was illegal activity in the transaction. >> receiving money from the turkish government is not a
crime in itself. >> right. >> it is not -- it is the lack of disclosure of receiving that money, maybe hiding it in this business and not filing as a foreign agent. >> absolutely. campaign with hire whoever they want. may be political implications if you're hiring people seen as registered agents for foreign governments who are advising your campaign. once you move into the white house and don't do disclosure, you are asking for trouble, even if you don't have a special prosecutor after you. certainly, it looks like the trump organization at the time -- not organization -- the business of the trump campaign wasn't aware of it. certainly, vice president mike pence, for whom flynn eventually was ousted, for not being -- for lying to him about his contacts. it looks -- look how long it is taking just to get everything out in the money trail of flynn.
this certainly also shows us how much of this probe is focusing on him. >> flynn was nsa for 24 days, and we're now at day 197 in this administration. eugene, on this cnn exclusive reporting that fbi agents on election day were watching social media and the russian disinformation campaign, we know we have a new fbi director, chris ray, who started this week, who says there is no reason not to believe the u.s. intelligence community's findings that russia was involved. the president has equivocated on that topic, at best. is the fbi any closer, any better, at finding and controlling potentially the disinformation that comes from russia? >> they seem to be better at monitoring it and acknowledging it and making it public, that this is something that they will have to keep an eye on in future elections. what we will be able to determine is if they actually are better in 2018, next year when this is expected to happen
again. russia's interests and interfering in american elections is not over. >> eugene and lynn, stay with us. we have more to talk about. jeff sessions issuing a warning to those who want to publicize sensitive information about the trump white house. he says, don't do it. how the justice department is planning to combat leakers. also, president trump is on vacation. two and a half weeks. bedminster, his resort there. arrived yesterday. white house officials say this is a working vacation. what does that mean? what will he be doing?

investigations. all of this as the a.g., attorney general, comes under fire from his boss over how he is doing his job. lynn sweet, eugene scott, cnn analyst joey jackson now, all joining us for this conversation. thank you all for sticking around. i want to listen here, lynn, to some sound from paul ryan after he addressed sessions' comments shortly after that speech yesterday. let's listen. >> leaks are a bad thing. leaks are concerning because leaks can often compromise national security. but that's the problem of the leaker, not the journalist. >> which is opposite, lynn, from what sessions is saying. how is that being received there in d.c.? >> journalists are going to -- every journalist organization, i am guessing, will speak out against anything that has a chilling effect on journalists doing their news gathering here. and part of what the trump white house is doing, i think, is c
conflating leaks that are annoying to president trump about palace intrigue, dinner parties, meetings, communications issues, as opposed to what you correctly said was the important stuff, classified information. not all classified information puts lives at risk. sometimes it's just the opposite. the most important thing i hope we think of when we continue this is that there's not one size that fits all on this. not every bit of information that is leaked is negative. sometimes it has been very important information that the public needs to know. i'm sure every journalist is going to argue very strongly that anything that is seen as a chilling effect is not good for the nation. certainly, journalists are going to continue, in the meantime, to do their job. >> eugene, the top democrat on the senate intel committee, warner, said leaks reflective of a chaotic white house, but
congress should investigate. if that would happen, i mean, how would that -- what would the protocol be there? would the intel community investigate? would that fall under judicial hands? >> it depends on exactly what it is that they would want investigating. i mean, we have to realize that so much of the information that has been leaked has contradicted much of what the white house has told us on the record. we haven't had an incredibly forthcoming white house. so the reality is, the leaking of information that americans care about, it's been beneficial to them, who want to know more about what this administration is doing. whether or not what this administration is doing and what's being leaked is illegal or problematic or a national security violation, that hasn't been proven yet. but if it is, that is what we would see congress investigate and look into in terms of finding wrongdoing. >> all right. joey jackson here. kellyann conway in an interview this week said it is easier to figure out who is leaking than the leakers may realize.
then she was asked whether lie detecters would be used to determine who is doing what. she said, well, they may. they may not. how likely would that tactic be employed, joey jackson? is there any legal red light you see going off? >> i see so many legal red lights. we are living in different times. i think what will happen to the broader issue is that this president, through his attorney general, will push this issue, i mean, as far as it can be pushed. let's be clear about something, obviously, the intent of even releasing information and saying, look, we're going after you now, is to deter it from occurring, right? in the event you don't want leaking, you have to serve notice that there will be action taken against the leakers. but then, of course, when you start talking about, okay, lie detecters, who is going to take the test? call in members of the press, your administration? it's not admissible in court. what is the theme to deter it? i think what we all need to
really take solace in is the fact that there is a separation of government, right? i think that any push in terms of attempting to go after the press, attempting to do lie detecter tests, anything, will ultimately end up in a court system. courts have held that we have a first amendment. that first amendment is very valuable. the press needs to do its job. historically, you go after leakers, not the publishers, which are the press informing the public, attempting to educate people as to what's going on. so i think, although this is pushed, although the attorney general could start trying to say, i want to jail, you know, people from the press, i want to do lie detecter tests on people, i think the reality is, the press will continue to be vigilant in reporting information and informing the public. i think the courts will protect their right to do so. >> lynn, how much do you think the leaks can be contributed to the rotating doors of this white house? we've already seen, you know, flynn and spicer and priebus
rotated out. new people rotated in. how is that affecting all of this? >> well, for the stories that are dealing, again, with the palace intrigue, the more people you have that are in and out of the trump white house, the more sources that reporters have of people who are kind of more easily gettable to. when you talk about national security leaks, you really have a more close community of journalists and news makers. of people who know them. these sources and figures just are not as well-known to the public. if you knew who some of them were, you wouldn't know them, as opposed to people who are more or less in front of a camera or who have been in the news. so there's -- when you have a big investigation like this, one of the other things, you have lawyers for a variety of people. lawyers have clients and different purposes in getting things out. so if you're a journalist, you
have many points of entry, depending on the story you're pursuing. so it is not just the rotating door of a white house. it's a sprawling investigation where you have four congressional committees, a special prosecutor and now a lot of people with attorneys. that means a lot of people know different aspects of what's going on. >> lynn sweet, eugene scott, joey jackson, grateful to have you in this conversation. thank you. >> thank you, christi. president trump criticized president obama for going on vacation. even saying that obama ought to get off the golf course. now, trump is at his golf resort for the next two and a half weeks. plus, russia and iran now saying they'll cooperate with each other more closely as both countries face u.s. sanctions. s. 40 million americans are waking up to a gillette shave. and at our factory in boston, 1,200 workers are starting their day building on over a hundred years of heritage, craftsmanship and innovation.
today we're bringing you america's number one shave at lower prices every day. putting money back in the pockets of millions of americans. as one of those workers, i'm proud to bring you gillette quality for less, because nobody can beat the men and women of gillette. gillette - the best a man can get.

>> announcer: this is cnn breaking news. >> the breaking news, a search and rescue mission right now for a u.s. service members after the marines are calling a mishap off the coast of australia. >> we know that the marine s boats and planes are searching for the service members in a search and rescue mission. we'll follow this. as we get more information, we'll pass it on to you. new details on the breaking news story this morning. northwestern university professor, oxford university employee, as well, wanted for murder, are now in custody in california. wyndham lathem and andrew warren surrendered after police searched the country for them. >> they're suspects in the stabbing death of a chicago man, trenton cornell-duranleau. he was found dead last week with multiple stab wounds at lathem's chicago department. on the day of his death, one of the suspects walked into this public library, near chicago, and made a $1,000 cash donation
in his name. the suspects are waiting to be extradited to illinois this morning. also this morning, president trump waking up at his bedminster, new jersey, golf resort. he is on a working vacation. it'll last for 17 days. plus, former russian ambassador to the u.s., sergey kislyak, saying he did not talk secrets with michael flynn. this as the "new york times" is reporting special counsel robert mueller is asking the white house for documents relating to the former national security adviser. in an exclusive report, cnn is getting information that the fbi monitored social media on election day for fake news believed to be from russia on hillary clinton. cnn's white house reporter is in new jersey right now. you are, of course, near where the president is staying. what do we know about his itinerary for the next couple of weeks? >> reporter: well, it's day one of his 17-day vacation here.
deputy press secretary lindsey walters told reporters on air force one yesterday this will be a working vacation for the president. you know the west wing is undergoing several renovations right now, getting spruced up, including a new air-conditioning system. they're billing this as a working vacation for the president. as you know, this is the same president who said that congress should stay in washington, d.c. until they had a health care bill measure passed. he also, as a private citizen, regularly criticized barack obama for taking too many vacations, for too long, and playing too much golf. >> kaitlian collins, we appreciate the update. we bring in former trump campaign adviser to join us. we have jack? okay. we do not have jack yet. eugene, start with you. working vacation. what's that mean from the white house perspective?
what will the president will doing? >> well, we will see. right? i mean, this is something he constantly criticized the former president, barack obama, for, taking long vacations. this working vacation is actually longer than any that we have seen president barack obama take on the record. but what his party is hoping he focuses on is moving forward to issues like tax reform and infrastructure. projects they said were priorities during the campaign that they were hoping to table after health care reform was passed. since that was not passed, they're now trying to figure out ways to keep that promise to the american people, even though they weren't able to focus on the first one. >> jack is with us. >> i'm here. >> you know where i'm going, jack. >> i'm here. >> all right. let's play it. this is the president. >> i love working. i'm not a vacation guy. i don't take vacations. i'm not like obama, where he takes air force one to hawaii. i don't take vacations. i promise you, i will not be
taking very long vacations if i take them at all. there's no time for vacation. other people go away for weeks and weeks. i don't like taking vacations. obama likes relaxing and going on vacations. me, i like working. i like working. i really do. if i get elected president, i'm going to be in the white house a lot. i'm not leaving. we have dealing to make. who the hell wants to leave, right? >> i'm not leaving. dozens of days at his properties away from the white house. two and a half week vacation. how is this anything other than hypocrisy? >> fair criticism. i'm not going to debate it. i do think that, you know, those are sound bites that are certainly useful. they drive a point. i do want to say this though, historically, presidents are unable to go on vacation. they simply change venues. they take most of their key staff and key communication methods with them. give you a couple examples. in 1862 -- >> hold on. before we get to 1862, wait a
minute, jack. >> but -- >> to say presidents don't take vacations, yeah, they do. yes, they take their advisers with them. yes, he's taking his chief of staff. but he is going to a golf resort for two and a half weeks. >> i can promise you, victor, he will be making big announcements. he will be in the press. he will be making decisions. i don't know if he's going to have heads of state. want to point out that ronald reagan did, many times, entertain heads of states while on vacation. in california. george bush did at his ranch. i'll point out, if you'll let me -- >> this president said he wasn't going to do this. go ahead to 1862 quickly. >> i'll give you that point. 1940, franklin roosevelt worked out the lease program on a ten-day fishing trip. ronald reagan fired the air traffic controllers while on vacation in california.
abraham lincoln spent half the year outside of washington at soldiers hill during the civil war. all of them working while they were gone. it was a change in venue. i promise you, the president of the united states, particularly in today's age of communication, they can't get away. >> okay. we'll see by the fruit of this vacation, if he actually has accomplished anything. lynn, i'll come to you. let me put up this "newsweek" cover, depicting the president in and as a lazy boy. writing on the cover, donald trump is bored and tired. imagine how bad he'd feel if he did any work. i mean, he heads to this two and a half week vacation without any major legislative win. >> that's true. the only thing that seems to be functioning very well in washington right now is the bob mueller investigation, which is chugging along. sessions, who he tried to get rid of it, is doing a lot in the justice department. but let's divide up this vacation question. because i agree, a president is always on duty.
i think that's easily agreeable to, no matter where you are and what the venue is. but you cannot ignore that stream of video you just played, victor. where president trump went on the attack of obama for taking vacations. and he leaves the white house on multiple weekends. here's what's interesting when you talk about the lazy boy cover, is how uncurious about using the awesome power of the presidency to make a difference in the country. when trump leaves the white house, he has yet to go west of the mississippi, except i think for one trip to iowa. in six months in office. his weekend trips are to his homes. his comfort factor is going from the white house to a trump property, to a trump property, to a trump golf course. so think how insulated already president trump is just from sampling the riches of america that he could on his travel.
can you even imagine him taking a walk in a national park? >> for example, maybe what would have if he actually went to the middle east and met with a muslim country, a jewish country, a christian -- wait a minute. he's already done that. >> jack, i'm not arguing with you that he's done some foreign trips. i'm talking about he criticizes other people about vacations. and he takes them himself. of all the things to be hypocritical about, this is a misdemeanor rather than a felony. >> it is important to point out, as he was criticizing president obama, president obama went with many of the same advisers that he is now going with. i guess, of course, in his white house. eugene, one news conference, 197 days. typically, the president before heading off on his own august break, as congress is on the august recess, he holds a news conference. this president did not and has had one. that was back in february.
>> yeah. i think what that has led to, as we've seen repeatedly, is that when he does speak publicly, be it for something related to the boy scouts or athletes coming to the white house, you see reporters ending up asking him questions that they would be able to ask him if he actually had news conferences. i think the president has a message and ideas and an agenda he wants to communicate to the american people. doing so via news conference would be in his best interest. we'll see if he maximizes that opportunity now that he'll be out of the white house for 17 days. >> jack, what's your expectation on the president and his social media, on twitter and facebook? the first week of the new white house with general kelly now as chief of staff, the president has been fair lly tame on twitt. do you expect the next 17 days, we'll see more of this? >> you know, i can't predict the president on twitter. he does communicate with over 100 million people when he does it. it is a very important tool for
communication. but he is goins to g to be work. i'm excited about general kelly. i think we'll put in much-needed processes, which all white houses need. i do want to say this though. i think the real criticism in this town is right now with the legislative branch. the president has pushed an agenda, but he has come across this piece of jell-o that you can't push and can't pull called the u.s. congress, of which i am a proud alumnus. the same hand, who brought down health care, who dragged on tax reform so far and infrastructure and so many other things? i think the president has really pushed an agenda, but he has met opposition from the other party and his own party. >> understood. but we have to remind viewers that republicans are in control of house. republicans are in control of the senate. in some of those same rallies we played, the bits about the vacation a moment ago, the president said that, i'm a deal maker. i can bring people together.
if the at the rnc speech he said, i alone can do it. to not be able to push the jell-o doesn't seem to meet up to what he said in the campaign. thank you, all. former russian ambassador sergey kislyak is opening up about his meeting with former national security adviser michael flynn. next, what he says they talked about and what they did not, according to him. plus, new hampton politicians are not happy about president trump's comment about their state being a drug-infested den. they called him wrong and disgusting. they're not the only ones who are angry. we'll hear from some new hampton voters. minds, nobody does it better. she also builds her own fighting robots. destroy. but when it comes to mortgages, she's less confident. fortunately for sarah,

former russian ambassador kislyak says he talked about terrorism but not about sanctions when he met with former national security adviser michael flynn. in an interview with russian state media, kislyak said he talked about topics important to u.s./russia cooperation. >> for more, let's go live to cnn correspondent oren lieberman in moscow. good morning to you. >> morning. we're getting insight from sergey kislyak, former russian ambassador to the u.s., in these conversations. we know kislyak had ties with michael flynn, the former national security adviser, going back at least a few years. the critical part here is the transition or links during the trump transition. that's where kislyak is giving insight. they only spoke of, quote, the simplest things and there were no secrets, at least on the russian side. he says they spoke about
