>> reporter: it was unbelievable, no stopping us now. in an interview with reuters the president making his thoughts known. he could take the investigation if he wanted, i can do whatever. i could run it if i went but i decided to stay out. i could be involved if i wanted to be. i haven't chosen to be involved, i will stay out, that reference to rod rosenstein to fire or replace mueller. the president raised concerns about speaking to mueller warding -- saying he says something, my word against his, mueller might say even if i'm telling the truth that makes me a liar, that is no good. the president went on a twitter rent saying disgraced and discredited bob mueller, 30 hours in the white house counsel, for purposes of
transparency, anyone who needs that much time when they there is no russia conclusion is looking for trouble, and ruining people's lives and refused to look at corruption on the democrat side. there is so much more, mueller's angry dems looking to impact the election, a national disgrace. the president's attorney rudy giuliani downplayed the cooperation indicating he would not be allowed to sit down with mueller sarcastically saying this. >> you give us the questions, not under oath or q&a. and you write a report that i'm innocent before questioning it. >> if it left any doubts where he stands he will address it in a rally in west virginia tonight. >> we are looking forward to that. >> many on the left accused the
president of collusion, obstruction of justice and even treason. >> at some point democrats have to pick a story and stick to it. >> some critics have to get their narrative right. either donald trump is obstructing justice or he isn't. the narrative is donald trump obstructed justice, refusing to meet with special counsel and attacking mueller, obstruction of the investigation and found out the president about his white house counsel to spend 30 hours with mueller. he waved executive privilege and attorney-client privilege to do it and they say he made a mistake. the president of the united states is behaving like someone who says i didn't collude with russia and what speed it up and get going. >> the 15 month russia probe has yet to offer any evidence of wrongdoing by the president. >> the last known nazi
collaborator in the united states is deported to germany. ice agents arresting 95-year-old at his home in queens, new york. according to the justice department this man served as an armed guard at a death camp in world war ii and lied immigration officials about his role in the war. a judge revoked his citizenship for deportation in 2005. it is unclear he will face prosecution in germany. 95 years old. celebrating the men and women who protect our border, throwing support behind i sent border patrol agents. >> my administration will not rest until you have the resources, the tools and the authorities you need to do it properly. we love you, we support you and
we will always have your back. >> the president vowing to stop america's catch and release policy which allows some immigrants who have been arrested to be released by the immigration hearing. >> donald trump vowing not to make concessions in the release of andrew brunson. the us has done everything right. >> the us has been disciplined in how they approach this with turkey. they started with quiet discipline, they gradually demonstrate their frustrations. >> turkey proposed the us will spend billions of dollars of find and drop the investigation into a turkish bank in exchange for andrew brunson's release, the white house rejected that offer, donald trump's message to disgraced cia director, bring it on, the worst cia director in
the country's history, it will be easy to get his records, texts, emails and documents to show not only the poor job he did but how he was involved in the mueller rigged witchhunt, he hit the sunday talkshow circuit admitting he had been contacted by lawyers and is willing to file a lawsuit over security clearance being revoked and hinting at doing the same thing for cia analysts philip mudd after what he called an unhinged tv appearance. rob: the first lady preparing for her first solo trip to africa. she visited several countries in africa in october, more about issues coming on the same day she spoke at an anti-cyber bullying summit. >> most are aware of the benefits of social media. we still need to do all we can

his performance protested the trump administration at 0-tolerance immigration policy. jillian: we want to know what you think of the latest political digs, send been able to friends first firstname.lastname@example.org or send your thoughts on social media pages. it is august but feels like fall. we are loving this. >> much-needed relief, humidity. but -- i aim to please. rob: you didn't have to say that. >> i love it when you love the weather. 68, less humidity and getting into the season the temperatures cool, not as much humidity. past 24 hours the potential for showers and thunderstorms across the midwest and that will head
eastward as the area of low pressure lengthens, severe threat in the ohio river valley and the interior northeast and that will move to the northeast tomorrow. enjoy the day today because we will see strong to severe storms as we head into tomorrow in the northeast. out west, not getting any relief yet again and temperatures remain very warm especially in the northwest and the rockies. temperatures in the 90s, not good for firefighters. we are not getting the moisture we need to see. still warm across the south and a nice refreshing 76 in new york city, don't you love it? it is like celebration whether. jillian: i heard you singing at the beginning of the show, now i have that song in my head. rob: that is the country version. jillian: so many talents.
rob: something wrong with your ears. 10 minutes after the hour, john brennan blasting donald trump over revoked security clearance but admits officials are making money off of it. >> they serve on boards of directors that require security clearances because the companies involved deal with certain information. rob: it was a swampy soundbite on meet the press. a former cia operative who had security clearance calling out the former cia top boss. jillian: does this look for your? a liberal getting called out for copying our commander-in-chief when we come back with my bladde, the products i've tried just didn't fit right. they were very saggy. it's getting in the way of our camping trips. but with new sizes, depend fit-flex is made for me. introducing more sizes for better comfort. new depend fit-flex underwear is guaranteed to be your best fit.
>> [speaking in native tongue] jillian: the first rocket landing not far from the presidential palace, the second year the us embassy, nobody was hurt, it comes one day after the president announced a cease-fire with the terror group. the world's number one state sponsored terrorism improved its air force around unveiling a new fighter jet overnight as tensions rage in the middle east. state media releasing these images showing president rouhani on hand to witness the first flight. rob: john brennan accusing donald trump of threatening the livelihoods of former government officials if he yanks their security clearance.
>> some of them serve on the board of directors that require security clearances. this could have a punitive and financial hit against them. rob: brennan upset his colleagues might not profit off of their security clearances after they left the post which are to discuss this is the cofounder of diligence, mike baker. you had clearance at one point, they leave their post and go on and take private jobs where they make a lot more money. they might be in jeopardy with this. >> in washington dc and the surrounding area, clearances are a currency. we talked about this in the past.
maintaining your security clearance for senior individuals leaving the government in a variety of agencies has always been a bit of a currency. people at my level on the street when you finish your job and leave the cia use her in that back. i didn't have an expectation of keeping my security clearance, i didn't want the responsibility and i was going to the commercial world. the way it should work there are millions of people walking around the security clearances, 4 million. of those over 1.2, 1.3 million have top-secret clearances. i would like to see this bizarre discussion between john brennan and donald trump out in the public, this feud going on that is very surreal, to be used to do something for the greater good. do we need 1.3 million people
with security clearances walking around? i don't think so. what we should be doing is saying when you have no more need to know, when you don't have a position that requires maintaining and handling information, you turn it back and if you go into the commercial sector and get hired by a company, effectively once you to have security clearance do what you're supposed to do, the company that sponsors you for your ticket and they have to go through the process of getting you your security clearance back. rob: numbers like that, 2 million, 3 million people with these clearances and you wonder why so much leaks out of washington dc. the media says this is unprecedented the president would take away security clearance and a lot of the left in the media are up in arms over this but so is john brennan's behavior and the idea of weapon icing the justice department against the former administration to take on your predecessor hillary clinton's
opponent, this is a lot of unprecedented things here they only focus on the fact that john brennan no longer has security clearance. >> it is unprecedented. even james clapper said it is unfortunate that john brennan is now the issue. he has done something that goes against the grain as somebody from the agency, you don't want to be up front or on the radar screen, you don't want this story. as far as media goes you go back three four years in the washington post was saying they think president obama should fire john brennan. that was when there was the issue of was the agency inappropriately looking at senate computers during an investigation. so as is typical he is in favor, out of favor like james comey, love him and hate him.
john brennan has become the story. for those of us who love the organization, the cia and the intel community, it is a very odd situation. rob: when clapper says bad things about you you probably went too far. mike baker, thanks for your time, appreciate it. 20 minutes after the hour, murder motive revealed, the man charged with killing his pregnant wife and daughter hours from facing a judge and the bombshell claim he just made. is a presidential run in chelsea clinton's future? what the former first daughter revealed about following in mom's footsteps. ♪ school... grade... done. done. hit the snooze button and get low prices on school supplies all summer long. like these for only $2 or less at office depot officemax. where we're changing withs? contemporary make-overs. like these for only $2 or less

this one. rob: the gop uses it in the official website describing his accomplishments, the mayor's spokesperson says it is a common phrase and they are not copyable trump campaign. we will see if he is up to something, why the change in slogan. jillian: french evidence foreign actors are trying to interfere in us politics. jillian: hackers that microsoft just thought ahead of the midterms. >> microsoft uncovering russian hacking attempts against political groups with the midterm elections. microsoft removed 6 internet domains registered by the russian hackers with political affiliation with the russian government. they were trying to spook legitimate websites from us political groups, think tanks here, one of them is the international republican institute, the others being the

republican running against this president because we do have a faction of the republican party that is a never trump and the fact that he is doing this is his right, not surprised it is him. i would not be surprised if there are more of them but i don't think it will have an overall impact. jillian: wide you say wouldn't have a big impact? >> i think trump's base is secure and stolid and immovable. through one controversy after another no matter what happens the flatlined baseline number is enough to carry him no matter what. there is going to be some people who will go, never trump or anybody else comes along, it will be -- is going to be a distraction. what happened in the past when someone runs against an incumbent.

a trump supporter, a republican, no values by the conservative party. i don't think it would be wise for democrats to do that because what democrats have right now is a huge gap in messaging, nobody knows what it means to be a democrat. they can criticize the republicans all they want, if it doesn't in you are pro-women's rights, where does it mean you stand on the issues, people don't know anymore. you just run on resist, we are not republicans and republicans are a mess. it didn't go so well so they would not be smart to do that. i wouldn't be surprised three weeks from now. rob: the democrat primary looks like the republican primary in 2016, all trying to get a mess out. 37 after the hour. alleged isis killer sneaks into the united states as a refugee. how did this happen? one senator is trying to get to

those who oppose it, and not by hillary clinton or barack obama but refused to give him a win outside the traditional republican comfort zones, into something that has been democratic dogma for generation. >> this is what democrats wanted but a lot in your position, i will give this a win for the president because it is something we have been asking for. >> joe is right, it is a step in the right direction and we have to consider the fact that a lot of states and cities have seen this working. i worked at the state attorney's office in baltimore city when we started a program to address recidivism in baltimore and also louisiana, they have seen their prison populations decrease as a result of having these programs, we have got to start somewhere

this guy followed police officers after he was detained for 15 minutes because of the description of the suspect, he followed the offices and continued to curse at them and everything and i found it indefensible and it angers me as an african-american, if officers turned around and physically assaulted him or shot him it would be another unjustified police shooting. i think the person following these offices is tone deaf. >> how much do police officers have to take? any other job, and they called the police. >> this is a conversation we want to continue to have at another time. gold in a different box. and the bandits, well, they got rocks.
