wouldn't need a life jacket. also this hour the hundreds of thousands of rohingya refugee. one human rights effort says it was a planned effort to push them out of their homes. we want to welcome our viewers here in the united states and all around the world. i'm george howell. >> i'm natalie allen, we are wide aweek. wide awake. >> stay awoke. >> stay awoke. >> "newsroom," we think, starts right now. >> 5:01 on the east coast the top story the u.s. president, before he took office, we now know his former attorney secretly recorded his client discussing a playmate to a former playboy model. >> karen mcdougall said she had ap affair with mr. trump in 2006. he denies that. the recording was made with
michael cohen about two months before the election. >> it was one of the many times the fbi seized earlier, when mr. trump found out about the tapes, he said, quote, i can't believe michael will do this to me. jessica snyder explains what we know so far. >> reporter: michael cohen secretly recorded multiple conversations and those tapes are now in the hands of federal investigators. two months before the election, cohen reported a conversation with a payment with karen mcdougall. mcdougall claims she had a nearly year-long affair with the president right after melania gave birth to baron in 2006. >> i was attracted to him. yeah. he's a nice looking man and you know i liked his charisma. >> reporter: mcdougall said trump tried to hand her cash after the first night together. >> after we had the incident, he tried to pay me.
i actually didn't know how to take that. >> did he actually try to happened you money? >> she did. >> mcdougall said she didn't take the money that night but sold her story to the national enquirer for $150,000 the tabloid never published it. guiliani said he didn't know he was being recorded. on the tapes, they discussed the right of buying the story from ami the parent company of "the enquirer." the recording was one of several seized by the fbi during a raid of cohen's hole room, apartment and office back in april. there are other tapes of michael cohen and powerful individuals the fbi seeds beyond the president that could be embarrassing on the tape according to a source familiar with those tapes. prosecutors in new york city are examining possible election investigation for sexual
encounters with trump. stormy daniels received $130,000 to keep quiet about an alleged affair. she then sued trump over that agreement. daniels attorney is urging him to release the recordings. >> if michael cohen is a true patriot like he wants the american people to believe, then michael cohen should release all of the audio recordings and i will tell you for a fact, there is more than one. there is multiple recordings. all of them should be released for the benefit of the american public. >> for now, michael cohen isn't complementing. he's been seen on the streets of new york city, but stayed mostly silent. he sat down with george stephanopoulos off camera this month, signaling his willingness to work with robert mueller, stressing his family, not the president comes first. late last night, cohen quoted the legendary broadcaster walter
cronkite and said it is never important now for everyone to distinguish between innuendo and fact. >> the tape, of course, raises new legal issues in the cohen investigation and particularly raises issues for the u.s. president. let's bring in cnn legal analyst areva martin. thank you for being with us. from what we know ab this tape, does it hurt the president? one of his lawyers, rudy guiliani says, it won't. has he explained that? >> well, one thing we know for sure is that the president lied to us. the story broke in 2016 the "wall street journal" broke the story trump knew about the negotiated deal between karen mcdougall and ami, the parent company for national enquirer. when asked about that deal, donald trump denied any knowledge of this tape of donald trump talking to michael cohen
about purchasing or trying to acquire that non-disclosure agreement entered into between ami and karen mcdougall, clearly, clearly reveals the president knew that karen mcdougall was telling her story or potentially telling her story about an affair she says she had with the president. so nothing else, it proves that trump and his administration have not been honest with the american people. >> that's one factor. the other big question is does the tape reveal in the payments made to miss mcdougall, did the payment violate campaign finance laws? >> that's a big question. of course, rudy guiliani says the tape exonerates the president. because there is no conversation. there is no mention during the 90 seconds or two minutes of this tape, where there is any conversation about the election
or suppressing information. it remains to be seen him we don't know what another information may be available. we know there were millions of documents seized from his office and his home. we don't know what they reveal about what trump and michael canen were doing leading up to the election. we do know from the tape, from the deal that ami and karen pittsburgh dougeal and the payment to stormy daniels, that trump had real issues about alleging affairs. he didn't want those stories to break before the election. whether they can be proven that payments made by donald trump were, indeed to prevent negative information from coming out right before the election it remains to be seen. >> cohen typically secretly recording meetings. this is the only one of substance with donald trump.
i want to ask you, the president has waved privilege on this recording, according to two sources on the legal discussion. what's the significance of that move? >> well, natalie, there is some reporting that donald trump and his team waved privilege and they made thistable tape available to the media. they were trying to divert the attention to the week the president had, beginning on monday where he stood side-by-side with vladimir putin and pretty much agreed with putin that despite evidence from our national intelligence and our law enforcement agency, that they did noter fear in the 2016 election. it's not clear to me at all why donald trump wanted this tape released and guiliani's theory this somehow exonerates the president. >> will cohen, the former fixer
for donald trump, will he be a danger? will he cooperate with the investigation? does this give any hint which way he is going? >> i think you look at the tweet made by one of the new attorneys, it's clear there has been a shift the way he looks at the president a shift, a month ago, he talked about taking a bullet for the president and being one of his most loyal confidants. we saw with his most recent interview with stephanopoulos. he said, look, my children first. he hired a new legal team. it's clear michael cohen is frustrated. he doesn't believe the president has his back and is trying to undermine his credibility. it's not so certain that michael cohen is going to continue to be loyal to the president. the lawyer he has hired is a former u.s. attorney in the southern district of new york and that suggests to some michael cohen is gearing up to
try to strike some kind of deal with the federal prosecutors if and when he is charged with a crime. >> legal analyst, areva martin, thanks, as always, for helping us understand. >> thank you, natalie. the trump administration is defending its decision to invite the russian president to visit washington this fall. this is what secretary of state mike pompeo said friday speaking at the united nations. >> i'm happy the two countries are continuing to meet. if it takes place in washington, it's all to the good. those conversations are incredibly important. we have our senior leaders meetling all across the world, where we have deep disagreements with. it is valuable to the people of america, president putin and president trump continue to remain in dialogue i think this makes sense. i am hopeful that meeting will
tase i take place this fall. >> four days after that summit in helsinki, we know what was said during the news conference. we know about the backlash after the news conference, the damage control from the white house. what we don't know, we don't know what those leaders said to each other or perhaps even agreed to when they met privately. so let's talk mar about this with our correspondent covering this story. sam. you know, look, traditionally, you would hear the u.s. version of events. the russian version of events. the two would be different, right, in the take aways and what was agreed to? but in this case, we're not hearing much from the u.s. side. it seems the russian side and president putin owning the narrative here. >> yes. it's a very strange phenomenon. as you say, you would have a situation if which both sides would say, have been agreed in either detail, broad terms and where they had agreed to
disagree, where they were miles apart. that is the nature of international diplomacy. there is nothing wrong, pacific, it's in all forms of diplomatic theory. talking is the most important step forward some that would be a good thing, having mr. putin come to the white house as per the invitation that's come from donald trump. where things go awry and where there have been opportunities for the russians to start toic ploit this, and also to come across almost as if they're doing a public relations for donald trump rather than donald trump's own west wing is if selective leaking or suggestion about what was agreed. so let's take the first thing, ministry of defense here said both sides have agreed to restart and start working towards the weapons reduction treaty renewal. not particularly controversial. the russian defense saying they are getting involved in that. then they suggest there has been
an agreement to work towards the repatriation of syria refugees into syria. this is problematic. not clearly so from this statement. because the american position is that there will be no repatriation of any syrian refugees into any area under the control of the syrian regime stroke russia. so there immediately is the russians trying to set up a degree of friction between the administration and the policy makers within the administration in the occupation. then again they suggested out of moscow, there was a proposal to have a referendum in eastern ukraine, where russian forces and their proxies have been into destabilizing and effectively captured a large territory broadly known as the dumbask. the white house pushinged back previous to the meeting. during the meeting, it's not clear from any of this whether donald trump recalls what went on there or whether he
understood it. therefore, the russians will come out looking on top and more competent at the very least. >> the russians looking on top, confident, clearly owning the narrative and the details on the american side, not much. thank you for the reporting. ahead here, the heart breaking story of a woman who lost nine members of her family when their boat sank. there were eight other victims as well. we have more about it coming up. plus the u.n. warns, if it fails, it could mean war. the latest on after effort to save an israel-gaza cease-fire. more throughout the newsroom. dr from maybelline new york. precision tip. easy grip. applies with ease. waterproof. no smudge. all-day precision. maybelline's master precise all day. only from maybelline new york. gives you lasting protection from tooth sensitivity. new listerine® sensitivity

that gives you the edge you need. alright one quick game of rock, paper, scissors. 1, 2, 3, go. e*trade. the original place to invest online. . >> welcome back to cnn "newsroom." we have a story about a woman after she swiempbd a boat sinking. >> we have more from our affiliate klor has our story. >> reporter: a duck boat tour usually travels on land and water. tia coleman said she was told the tour would go on the water excursion first because of the incoming storm. she describes the captain take over once he reaches the lake. >> once he takes over, it's
choppy, everybody started getting like, hey, this is a little too much. then it got really choppy, deep as wells came into the boat. a huge wave september over. when it swept over, the last thing i heard my sister-in-law yell, grab the baby. my head pushed up to the top of the water. i lost control. i didn't have anybody with me. it felt like i struggled for at least an hour, but it was probably like ten minutes. and i just remember i kept sinking. i kept singing. >> she was drowning and described the waters a very cold. >> i started floating up to the top. i felt the water temperature raise to warm him then i felt it raise, i jumped up and i saw the big boat that's out there, i don't know what kind of boat it is, it was huge, ho. >> it was a rescue boat with people throwing life jackets into the water. >> i seshlgsd jesus, keep me so i can get to my children, keep
me, lord, i was swimming as fast as i could. i couldn't reach, i could not reach the life jacket. >> she had to swim to the rescue boat. >> i swam over to the boat, my legs and arms were so heavy from trying. it was so heavy. >> she was then transferred to the hospital and is still in the process of recovering. coleman toll me about the ten family members she was with, starting with her sister-in-law. >> she was there with her 13-year-old, her soon to be 3-year-old i was there with my husband and our three children who were 9, 7 and 1. my inlaws were there. my mother-in-law, my father-in-law and the uncle who lives with them. >> she also told me there were life jackets on board. >> they told us, they're up here. this is where they are. they showed us where they r. they said, don't worry about it. you won't need it.
we said, okay. so when the captain took over, i thought that at some point he would say, grab the jackets now. but we were told to stay seated and everybody stayed seated. nobody grabbed -- when that boat is found, all those life jacks will be on there, because nobody pulled one you a, you weren't supposed to grab one unless you were in distress, which we were, but he told us we don't need them. it was i don't know what to say, it was definitely life changing. life altering event. >> i think she's still in shock at this point. in the meantime, vigils have been taking place in pedestrianson to mourn those who died. 17 died. it's still fought clear why the
boat sank, why it went out in threatening weather conditions. transportation safety officials expect to release a preliminary report in a month. it appears the cease-fire along the border that targeted a hamas military post in gaza. israel says it happened when the border fence was breached. at the same time, civilians near the border have been toll to return to their normal routine. >> all of this follows friday's fighting, this after an israeli soldiers with shot and killed. hamas reports three members of its military wing were kill. it reports a truce is in effect. >> let's get the very latest from our ian lee, he is there in gaza city following a development. hello. >> reporter: hi, natalie. it is the calm right now, despite that incident that took
place earlier today. i think we call this gaza calm. because this happens time and time again. you can still hear the drones overhead. earlier, you could hear warpl e warplanes. the situation calm but tense yesterday, a lot of people were thinking this is going to head to a war. we heard from the u.n. special coordinator for peace saying that everyone needs to step back from the brink and not let this get to a bar. what we're hearing from a hamas official is that behind the scenes, there was quite the effort by the u.n., by the egyptians to broker some sort of cease-fire that we've seen time and time again. i want to take you back to last weekend, where we saw a very large uptick in violence in gaza, where you had over 200 rockets and mortars fired into israel. they have the largest bombing
campaign since 2014. again the u.n. and the egyptians were able calm the tensions, but this uptick in violence, it's cyclical. we are seeing it time and time again, without any cease-fire permanent truce between the gaza faction and israel. >> you know this all goes back to march when these protests were planned, but they were to ends in may, weren't they, ian? >> yeah, they were leading up to the embassy move when the occupation was inaugurateing the u.s. embassy in jerusalem. the protests were leading up to the state. they continued open a weekly basis. we've seen various degrees of violencech since these protests began along the gaza border with israel in march. over 140 palestinians have been killed, thousands have been injured. yesterday was the first time an israeli soldier was killed in
this violence and israel says for their part, they are protecting their border for the palestinians, they want to return to lands lost in the 1948 war, but when you talk to him, you think that will actually happen? it's quite skeptical. this was simmering. one other thing we have seen are fire balloons, they start these prussia fires. israeli says they consider those rockets, mortars flying over, no end in sight, natalie. >> for now, gaza calm. ian lee, thank you so much for your reporting. still ahead on "newsroom," the bromance and the backlash, while the u.s. president speaks glowingly about the president of russia. what about america's biggest allies? how are they taking all of this? >> what caused more than 100,000
everyone else, no way. we let calls from any of your devices come from your business number. them, not so much. we let you keep an eye on your business from anywhere. the others? nope! get internet on our gig-speed network and add voice and tv for $34.90 more per month. call or go on line today. >> coast-to-coast around the united states, you are watching cnn "newsroom" live in atlanta. >> a tape reveals donald trump and his attorney talking about buying the rights of a playboy model. the reporting was made by mr. trump's lawyer, michael cohen
and seized by the fbi earlier this year. >> we are learning more this day about a tour boat accident in the u.s. state of missouri. an accident that killed 17 people, including nine people from the same family. this boat was carrying 38 people when it sank near the town of branson, missouri, during a violent thunderstorm. >> israel says one of its tanks targeted a hamas military quote post on saturday after a breach of a border fence. on friday, it said it hit dozens of targets. facebook says it suspended another if i recall. it is investigating how crimson hexagon has been using data. they reportedly examine data.
earlier they suspended cambridge, analytica. back at a story we have been following, the backlash against president trump. his performance at the helsinki summit is not letting up. >> a former republican said this, the leader of the free world actively participated in a disinterested campaign. >> this time set in washington, d.c., secretary of state mike pompeo says it's a great idea but many on capitol hill may have a different penalties on that, cluck some republicans. >> so after the back tracking the walk back and damage control, many are wondering, who won in helsinki? >> brian todd reports. in moscow the answer is clear.
>> vladimir putin is in full swagger, as the fallout from the helsinki tropical storm humberto over trump. >> trump is weak. he provides him an opportunity to communicate to the russian people overall that russia is back as a great power again. >> there is this high-tech talk. putin's team releasing new video of sophisticated russians developed and two missiles they say fly faster than the u.s. sound. they say they aren't close to being operational. >> putin showing russian weapon systems is a part of the deterrence part from his end saying we have very apable defenses. you might as well stop trying.
>> reporter: since the summit, there will be gloating in putin's state media the colonel got the upper hand on trump. >> we will hold both countries responsible. i think the united states has been foolish. we have all been foolish. >> they pounced on that with a cruel insult of trump. >> when he said because of the foolishness of the occupation, we have bad russian relations, this smells like she a kremlin agen agent. >> another popular sign, reports of a secret offer. according to bloomberg, he proposed to hold a referendum. the report says trump asked putin not to discuss the idea publicly. supporting what would likely be a sham would run counter. the nsc now says trump won't
support that referendum and analysts say there is glowing precedent to stand up for his leader. >> i think the president needs to some making statements that make putin seem like a good guy. >> analysts aren't certain they will get tough and turn it around on putin. every time they show a backbone saying he'd be the worst enemy, he waivers and invites putin to washington for a sum. plenty of talk about for sure, to do so we have the deputy attorney general at the international institute for strategic studies and the deputy director at the u.s. state department under former president george w. bush and a professor at cnn london bureau. good to have you all with us. look, plenty of backlash for
sure from helsinki, now, president trump is forging ahead with a second summit. let's look at the past craze he's had for president putin. >> i think we're doing really well with russia as of today. >> a good competitor he is. i think the word is a supplement. >> i think the occupation has been foolish. i have president putin. he just said it's not russia. ly say this, i don't see any reason why it would be i have great confidence in my intelligence people. i will tell you that president putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today. >> let's start with you. all this praise in contrast to what mr. trump has said to traditional allies, does this
mean for them a great deem of uncertainly when it comes to defending western value? >> i think at one level there is a great level of uncertainty, that has been there since president trump has been in the race and discovered attacking nato and so on was going to get into traction at home. on the other hand, i think we have to see this is a very complex pick. because in regard to actual nato deployments, the europe pen members stepped up their europe pen spending and commitments to nato actually president trump has achieved something by accident or design is mack european members much more aggressive militarily. there has been sanctions and so on. so yes at one level there is uncertainty the rhetoric is unpredictable. on the other hand, i think there are some major material factors
which would suggest the opposite. i'm not sure there is a clear winner or loser in this episode since the trump-putin summit. >> cory, we've seen these leaders standing side-by-side in helsink helsinki. now we see them together in a way you may never imagine. the cover of the "time" magazine, the president of the united states his head with the russian leader putin's face all morphed towing. as the sight to see. as allies look at that, what should they think? >> well, allies should be very worried. he is right, george the trump administration's policy have done a number of practical things that constrain russia and penalize it for its bad behavior in elections and the seizing of
crimea, but president trump, himself, with his statement done with his actions largely negate those positive policy stats. because people wonder deeply and profoundly whether the united states can be relied upon to protect its allies and immediate interests. because of the president's odd affinity for president putin and russia. the united states has played -- >> no, no, go ahead, please. >> i was going to say russia is playing a big hound, the occupation of america is an extremely hard place to play. president trump is skwaupdering it. >> to your point i feel the journalists are analyzing this understanding the new dynamics of play here. one of them, i spoke about earlier, just the narrative
here. cory, this question to you, typically, you would here the vugs version of events, in this case, it seems that vladimir putin is pushing the narrative forward with detail. >> absolutely, because the white house did not say anything, they are leaving a story on our interests and our allies. it's extraordinarily damaging that we are not transparent about what we are doing and we're letting the russians tell the story. you are exactly right. >> looking ahead at this other summit, the second summit the u.s. president is forge ahead with, what itself the plus-minus for the white house and u.s.
allies if this thing happens? >> that's very difficult. i suspects assume, there will be some level of strategy control, better means by which the whole issue will be presented. so it's difficult for our allies and trump the point i would like to make, please, is that i think president trump is in a difficult position. not only a sympathizer. i think he stumbled in when the international system was in a state of flux and change and a degree of crisis. he remains there. i think he is trying to deal with aspects of it. part of that hasening up, if you like, is really to try to deal with some of the big challenges, especially from china and also from russia. >> that seems to involve, in his
mind, possibly a wedge between russia and china to be dealt with first. i think that is what probably is at the heart of it. now, president trump is not a very, very good ambassador for that strategy. steve bannon called him a blind incident. he doesn't appear to be winning constituents on behalf of putin. >> thank you both for your time. >> thank you. >> aid groups are demanding international action for hundreds of thousands rohingya refugees they say were targeted for genocide. a new report is revealing. we'll talk to a person behind it
i'm a small business, but i have... big dreams... and big plans. so how do i make the efforts of 8 employees... feel like 50? how can i share new plans virtually? how can i download an e-file? virtual tours? zip-file? really big files? in seconds, not minutes... just like that. like everything... the answer is simple. i'll do what i've always done... dream more, dream faster, and above all... now, i'll dream gig. now more businesses, in more places, can afford to dream gig.
comcast, building america's largest gig-speed network. welcome back to "newsroom." two new reports reveal the horror of the rohingya violence in myanmar. nearly 700,000 fled that country to bangladesh last year. one report comes from a medical aid group. they had a veg attacked nearly a year ago. their report says forensic evidence support the account of atrocities and abuses. the report estimates
hundreds were killed. security forces fired on civilians, raped women and burned down homes. myanmar security officials say they were conducting terror operations. the aid group says there is no way that is true. >> there is no indication this was an anti-terror campaign as all the fact that so many have multiple times of injuries, they have been exposed to physical violence and sexual violence puts the lie to this notion there is a terrorist company. >> another aid group says they plan to carry out crimes against humantarians. fortify right the game name of the group, documents the steps in a report.
there are some of the preparations security forces made before they attack entire villages. >> the report says they disarmed rohingyas, taking away their knives and train and arm other neighboring groups. security forces deprived civilians of food or aid, physically weakening them before the attacks and the committed other human rights violations. wow, it's a lot to talk about. let's bring in the co-founder and ceo. thank you so much for your time. tell us more about this report, what did you find in this report? what were the conclusions? >> thanks, george. we interviewed about more than 250 eyewitnesses and survivors. we also spoke to members of the
myanmar police and bangladesh officials and aid workers and others, our conclusion were as you described well the authorities made preparations for these attacks weeks and months in advance. this is counter to the government's narrative that it was responding spontaneously to attacks by rohingya militants. essentially what we found is these mass crimes perpetrated and illustrated so painfully as well, we found these abuses amount to the crime of genocide and humanity. >> matthew, you say this was planned months in advance. why? why did it happen? >> this is a population, natalie the myanmar authorities have been attempting to destroy for decades. this is a population used politically, subject to very
raw, very ugly discrimination in myanmar, what appears to have happened is the authorities carried out attacks in october, 2016. when the international community failed to act, they made preparations for a second, much bigger ferocious round of attacks. >> it certainly raised criticism for aung san suu kyi . questions about the government's roam or position with all of this, the government has always denied that there was ethnic cleansing or gen side. is there a concern that no one will be held to account for this? >> that's absolutely a concern. the authorities have given no indication that they are willing or able to investigate or hold perpetrators accountable. in that situation like that, that is precisely why the
international criminal court was created. so this is a situation where there should be a referral by the u.n. security council. we have exposed the names of 22 myanmar army and police officials who we believe should be criminally investigating. >> we have a few seconds left, what is the status of the refugee today? >> i was in the ramps, the difficulties are immense, monsoon season. bang la dish needs to stay vigilant. but there still is a tremendous amount of suffering there. >> we appreciate what your group has done, thank you. >> wrook. belly fat:
