tv   CNN Newsroom With Fredricka Whitfield  CNN  July 21, 2018 11:00am-12:00pm PDT

11:00 am
>> reporter: maybe critics have to resign themselves from bealing deranged. jeanne moos. cnn. >> derangement syndrome. >> effectively call bush derangement syndrome. >> trump derangement syndrome. >> make yourself great again, rezine. hello again, everyone. thanks for being with me. i'm fredricka whitfield this saturday. after a week of intense damage control following president trump's stunning and controversial meeting with russian president vladimir putin, the white house is remaining silent so far this weekend. still no official readout on that summit, but we are hearing details not from the trump administration but from russia. the kremlin sharing their version of events and the russian foreign minister saying the meeting was "better than super." now president trump says he's
11:01 am
ready for round two. this time he's hoping putin will come to the white house this fall. we have cnn's ryan nobles in new jersey nearby where the president is staying this weekend and cnn senior international correspondent sam kiley, he's in moscow with details on the summit and cnn global affairs correspondent elise labott, reaction from the trump administration. begin first with you, ryan in new jersey. talk more about this second planned meeting. >> reporter: yeah, fred. the white house remaining pretty silent as to exactly what this second meeting between vladimir putin and donald trump could entail. the only real information we have at this point is a tweet by the press secretary sarah sanders that said the national security adviser john bolton was going to extend that invitation to vladimir putin and we know the secretary of state mike pompeo described it as being a good next step in the process of the conversation between the two countries, but there is a lot of angst in washington about what
11:02 am
this second meeting could mean. especially when you take into account we are still hashing out everything that happened in that first summit between donald trump and vladimir putin. no one knows for sure exactly what the president and the russian president discussed in that meeting. even some talk the translator in the room could be called before congress or the national security council to give her version of events because we just don't know. now, the timing of all of this could also be pretty precarious. especially for the republicans in congress who are in swing districts or if they're in a state that is up and hotly contested in the fall election. that's because the timing of this meeting could happen either right before the midterm elections or right after the midterm elections, and that means no mat whir it takes place it will be a talking point on the campaign trail. something that republicans are going to have to face. do they support this idea of a second putin meeting or not? fred, honestly now there are a lot of republicans in congress uncomfortable with this idea, in fact, the senate majority
11:03 am
mitch mcconnell, president putin will not be invited to congress if he comes to washington. >> thanks very much. sam kiley from moscow. what's the kremlin's take on the content of this helsinki meeting? >> reporter: one of considerable delight, because at the moment they're pretty much writing the story the way that they want it to be told. so in the media aftermath of this helsinki agreement they suggested that they, the ministry of defense here in russia was preparing for a future peace talks over arms reduction, over renewal of the s.t.a.r.t. treaty. then a suggestion there were negotiations or talks, suggestions perhaps at this secret meeting between donald trump and vladimir putin at which the sharing of information, perhaps counterterror operations discussed and more ironically
11:04 am
over cyber operations, given the effects on the 2016 presidential elections in america and elsewhere in europe of russian cyber hacking, somewhat ironic there. then i think even more controversial perhaps is a suggestion coming out of from the russians that donald trump may have agreed or at least agreed to talk about further a deal that would bring syrian refugees back into syrian government-held territory nap is completely at odds with american policy rules this out and backed by russia. bear in mind, of course, russians are still bombing syrians as we speak. at the moment, very much a situation in which the russians are writing the story of the helsinki summit. fred? >> all right. sam kiley, thanks so much in moscow. so now for a look at how the trump administration is handling the news of this second summit. cnn's global affairs
11:05 am
correspondent elise labott is joining me now. what are you hearing how this may be planned or played? >> reporter: fred, right now a tweet from sarah sanders, because nobody has been given any instructions in terms of what happened from the first summit, on how to implement any policy. people still trying to find out in dribs and drabs kind of crumbs, if you will, on what happened at that summit, and as sam said, the narrative is really being run by the russians. secretary of state mike pompeo perhaps one of the very few people that have a real inkling what went on. take a listen to him yesterday at the united nations when asked why it was important to invite vladimir putin for a second meeting in washington. >> i'm happy that the two leaders of two very important countries are continuing to meet. if that meeting take thats place in washington it's all to the good. those conversations are incredibly important. we have our senior leaders meeting all across the world
11:06 am
with people when we have deep disagreements with. it is incredibly valuable to the people of the united states of america that president putin and president trump continue to engage in dialogue to resolve the difficult issues our countries face between each other. it makes enormous sense and i'm hopeful that meeting will take place this fall. >> -- so a lot of talk why it is valuable and what the dialogue is about these certain issues and why there's confusion and a deep frustration within the trump administration about the kind of lack of a kword's acoor strategy how to follow up from the summit. communication strategy? instructions implementing new policies? a lot of bafflement i would say throughout the administration. >> bafflement? probably describes the reaction that we saw from the director of national intelligence, dan coats, as well. that he wouldn't know that there was this discussion or even
11:07 am
planning. who will be involved in a planned summit at the white house? >> reporter: i think in terms of why dan coats didn't know, the white house was saying that they tried to reach the dni's office. weren't able to talk to him directly. so they wanted to avoid leaks. so he wasn't briefed on the latest invitation. certainly was surprised and in fact seemed to indicate he didn't think maybe that there should be another summit. i think the whole administration if there was a second meeting, would be involved. certainly national security adviser john bolton. secretary of state mike pompeo, if there is nuclear talks obviously defense secretary mattis would help prepare the president for this, but since, again, you know, as everybody is saying no one really knows what was kind of agreed to or what was put, you know, for further discussion at this summit, they don't know how to help the president or brief the president. i think in the coming days and weeks we'll have to hear what
11:08 am
went on at this summit to know why it's so fortunate have a second one. >> all right. elise labott, thanks so much. talk more about this. bring in angela stint, director for russian eerchd european studies at george town university and a former intelligence officer for the national intelligence council. good to see you. >> good to be back. >> so right now it appears as though vladimir putin is in the driver's seat of, you know, post-helsinki. what was agreed upon, what wasn't. do you see he'll continue to be in the drive are's seat for this planned second meeting, albeit at the white house? >> if nothing changes i think he will. i think the summit was pretty much a success for him. he had the american president treating him as an equal. we trying to isolate russia because what it had done in ukraine and other places, in syria, that seems to be over now. as your correspondents says all we know ap what happened during that 90-minute meeting is what
11:09 am
the russians are telling us. i think someone in washington needs to step to up this and begin to take control of the narrative and up to now we seem to have at least two policies. we have the policy of president trump who's obviously very forward looking. in terms of russia. and thinks he can really make a deal with putin. and then the rest of the administration that's much more cautious, and wants to have, if you like, pursue a more conventional policy and understands the pitfalls of just accepting the russian narrative. >> if the white house were to now step up and try to take the reins of the narrative it is really too late to do that? >> i don't think it is. i mean, i think there is are issues like arms control where i think both sides, we need with the russians to extend this strategic arms treat they expires in 2021. i think that is a good way to begin with the russians. i think everything else is going to be much more difficult.
11:10 am
for instance, syria, where i think we have rather different views, as we heard. so it's not too late, but i think we -- we have to pick the issues. we have to set that agenda. >> do you believe this confusion, this bafflement, this really is exactly what vladimir putin had been gunning for? >> i think so, except i think what the russians didn't realize is the domestic backlash to what president trump did in that press conference with putin. they didn't reckon with that and now i think they have to understand that this could make it much more difficult to move forward on their agenda, too. >> hmm. so is it your feeling that the interpreters, that their notetaking would suffice to understanding what may or may not have been promised? or do you believe that putin or maybe even, you know, the finns may have recorded this conversation?
11:11 am
some sort of documentation? >> well, part of me would be very surprised if someone hadn't recorded it, although i have no knowledge of that. the problem is, the interpreters, they're focusing on interpreting the meaning of what the different presidents are saying, and they don't have a broader overview. i think they work for the president, and they're under no obligation to brief anyone else. so i think the sooner that -- the sooner our administration gives us some readout about what happened, whatever the terms are, i think then that will assuage some of the concerns about whether things were agreed to that we'll never know about. >> if there is indeed a white house meeting in the fall, how do you see it might be -- you know, coordinated differently? >> well, i think you just have to have a proper interagency process preparing for it, which is what normally happens in the different bramplg branches of t government. i assume a working visit. if it was a state visit it would
11:12 am
be a much bigger deal and we haven't had a state visit with president putin i don't believe since he's been in power. that's for 18 years. i think you just need enough time to prepare and you need proper interagency coordination. >> is it your feeling perhaps vladimir putin wanted this to be private? perhaps the way in which it was played out really are the hallmarks of his, you know, choreograp choreography? >> i think he -- he looked pretty happy going into that press conference and i think from his point of view, again, i think it worked out pretty well, except for this unexpected domestic backlash, but he may still believe he can interest president trump in proposaling that the russians want but that aren't necessarily in america's national interest. >> angela stint, leave it there. good to see you. >> thank you. still ahead -- a survivor of that duck boat tragedy who lost several family members describes the moment that she thought she would drown. >> and i was yelling. i was screaming.
11:13 am
finally i said, lord, just let me die. let me die. i was saying, i can't -- i can't keep drowning. >> a report, next.

11:18 am
boat accident. a mother who lost nine family members including her three children shared her story this morning about what happened onboard as conditions worsened. >> they told us they're up here. this is where they are. they showed us where they are. they said, don't worry about it, you won't need it. said, okay. so when the captain took over i thought at some point he would say, grab the jackets now. but we told to stay seated and everybody stayed seated. nobody -- nobody grabbed -- when that boat is found, all of those life jackets are going to be on there. >> that is difficult to hear every time you hear. a cnn correspondent, joining us live from branson mos, missouri. what are investigators saying at
11:19 am
this juncture? >> reporter: tea coleman, heard her shedding light on an important question investigators will be asking the other survivors of this tragedy. that's, what about those life jackets? the boat still at the bottom of his lake. se salvages the boat intact will be port. the ntsb leading this investigation tells us, it would be, they expect, could be a year before they're able to issue a report that details what led to the death of 17 people. as they said, speaking with survivors will be key as well as eyewitnesses and first responders. stunning eyewitness video of the moments that this boat capsized and sank were captured. you mentioned, the ag in town. the state's top law enforcement officer for a briefing. many of the ntsb hasn't been on the ground much loaninger than

just a few days for the first trial in the special counsel's russia investigation. paul manafort, president trump the former campaign chairman is set to go to trial around the end of the week on bank and fraud charges. manafort's attorneys are submitting a last-minute kwecht to keep evidence on his foreign consulting work out of the case arguing material could confuse and mislead juries. cnn's jessica snide hechneider e on what this highly anticipated trial might look like. >> reporter: paul manafort will soon emerge from his jail cell to face a judge and jury inside a virginia courtroom. >> won the primary process with a record number of votes. >> reporter: the man who served five months as donald trump's campaign chairman now faces 25 criminal charges in two separate
11:26 am
cases in virginia and washington, d.c. amounting to a maximum of 305 years in prison if convicted on all counts. manafort lost his fight to move this week's trial away from alexandria virginia, just across the potomac. manafort faces 18 counts of bank and tax fraud in virginia where prosecutors from special counsel mueller's team laid out 580 pieces of evidence to present. including pictures of manafort's five home s spanning from matma- manhattan, and also a watch from the most expensive store in the world. >> we're excited about that. >> reporter: one month after that announcement and donald trump clinching the republican nomination paul manafort was forced out. he left the campaign in august
11:27 am
2016 amid questions about his past lobbying work for the pro-russian ukrainian government and payments received. more than year later in late october 2017, the special counsel's team indicted manafort charging him with hiding money in ukraine to avoid paying taxes and lying about his debt to secure new loans. manafort's lawyers have been fighting the charges for months on two fronts. in addition to the virginia case, manafort is charged with seven other counts in washington, d.c. including failing to register as a foreign agent. that trial is set to start in september. in june, the d.c. district judge revoked manafort's $10 million bail included house arrest and sent him to a jail two hours south of washington. the judge scolded manafort after prosecutors said he contacted witnesses in his case and asked them to lie. >> i have no foreign clients now. i have no clients. one client. donald trump. >> reporter: the man who
11:28 am
arguably ushered trump to the republican nomination is more recognizable for his mug shot. the trial is the first major spotlight for the special counsel's team already secured five guilty pleas including manafort's former deputy rick gates and former national security adviser michael flynn. so far special counsel robert mueller has brought 191 criminal charges against 32 people and three companies as part of his ingue investigation to russian meddling at the elections. and oit will be up to the judge if he decides to force those five to testify. a hearing in manafort's case scheduled for monday will determine what evidence is allowed in and jury selection is expected to begin wednesday setting up a trial to start for the end of the week. jessica schneider, cnn, washington. let's discuss this big trial
11:29 am
and what could be at stake. with me now, areva martin. good to see you. >> thank you. >> robert mueller asked the judge to grant immunity to five potential witnesses. how unusual jshl. >> not at all. this case is a huge and complex tax fraud and heard over 600 pieces of documentary evidence the mueller team asked the judge be allowed admitted during the trial. we should expect to see and hear testimony from rick gates. key to this. we know he's already take an plea deal with mueller and was so close to paul manafort during the decade working in the ukraine. he could be that smoking gun and provide that testimony that ties manafort to the charges that have been brought against him. >> how nervous potentially should manafort be particularly for gates' testimony?
11:30 am
>> this is a really stunning trial. the fact that manafort has not already entered into some kind of plea deal with the government is shocking, because the evidence against him is so persuasive and compelling. we should expect that paul manafort's team are going to go after rick gates if he testifies, go after him hard and say this guy has lied to accountants, lied to lawyers. lied to the treasury department. and even to fbi agents. so why should you believe him now? so we should expect a very, a rigorous cross-examination of rick gates if he takes the stand to testify against paul manafort. >> what does it say to you that manafort hasn't cut a deal yet? i mean, if it's jury selection next week, seems that window is closed, and stoeecond to that, s it mean he's the biggest fish and perhaps mueller team doesn't want to cut a deal with him
11:31 am
because of no real leverage? >> interesting question. haven't heard much about a deal or negotiations with federal prosecutors. seems he prepared to go to trial and assert innocence. part of his defense will probably be he didn't have control over these accounts and didn't have specific intent to defraud the government. so it's curious as to why he hasn't given the mounds and mound of evidence against him, paper evidence. got to be compelling to jurors sitting there looking at all of these lavish, you know, things, watches to homes to the incredible bills he racked up on things like suits and clothing. >> yeah. and then how does it impact whether it's jury selection or the case telephone it, that manafort lost privileges? he had house arrest. then he ended up in jail without the privilege of being able to enjoy any of his number of, five properties while awaiting trial.
11:32 am
how does that color, i guess, jury selection or even set the stage for the trial? >> i don't think those facts in particular will cover jury selection, but i think what will be stunning. think about the average juror. so it's a jury of your peers, but not many peers have experienced the kind of lifestyle paul manafort has. you're asking jurors to look at this evidence. this guy with leading an incredibly lavish lifestyle shopping at the most ex-pressive stores in the world if not the country tuned believe somehow he didn't know he was, you know, breaking the law. he didn't know he had to report this income he was earning overseas. he was inflating his income and lying about his debts to get additional loans. i think he's going to have an incredibly hard time convincing jurors of his innocence in a case of this magnitude. >> so his attorneys would know that. what are they up against? because they have to humanize him. whether you're wealthy or not.
11:33 am
the attorneys have to connect with jurors to say, okay. erase all that, forget the fact that he's wealthy or may not be able to identify with your lifestyle, but this is what i need you to consider, and this is why you need to look at him as a, an innocent man? >> this is a very difficult job for lawyers. we don't know if his lawyers haven't been trying to encourage him to enter into some kind of plea deal. ultimately, it's his decision. not the decision of the lawyers. you're right. the lawyers have to try to get the jurors to see him as a person. obviously they'll try to point their fingers at the prosecutors as the big, bad government. they'll say this is all politically motivated, that these charges were just brought because of his affiliation with donald trump. as we know, paul manafort has been allegedly under investigation for years before he joined the trump campaign for that brief period. so their best defense, this is the little guy and the big, bad government coming after the
11:34 am
little guy and we can't let the government overreach in this way. hard story to sell, but one that has to be made by his defense team. >> we'll be watching. areva martin, thank you. president trump, his tariffs are taking aim at foreign product, but what effects are they having right here in the homefront? coming up, why some farmers say they will suffer the most from the white house's current trade policies. we can't stay here! why? flat toilet paper! i'll never get clean! way ahead of you. charmin ultra strong. it cleans better. it's four times stronger and you can use less. enjoy the go with charmin.
