there has been many other worked white house has been doing starting with the media campaign and a phone call that president trump had to discuss north korea and iran. a lot of work going on not making it to the front page because of the efforts to push back on this book. >> eric: steve bannon is expressing some regret. he is speaking out for the first time about the harsh comments. what did he say? >> his reaction is why continues to be in the headlines. some of the more controversial statements contained in fire theory were allegedly made by bannon. he's quoted calling ivanka dumb as a brick. and the meeting at trump tower including donald trump junior's treasonous and unpatriotic. they're not disputing the quotes

by everything he wrote. >> thank you. >> foreign-policy news is president trump voices support for antigovernment protest in iran. he would be open to talks with north korea. now ahead of the sit down between north and south korea, the first high-level diplomatic meeting in five years. in the one president trumps tough talk helped bring about. >> the north koreans are behaving out of fear. they're concerned that america, for the first time is serious about the nuclear icing the peninsula. they're trying to find a place to reach out. we will wait and see how the conversation goes. >> molly is life with more. >> the u.s. ambassador to the united nations says there may be a time of the u.s. talk directly
with north korea. before that north korea would have to stop the missile testing and be willing to talk about banning nuclear weapons. >> were trying to make sure we don't repeat what is happened lost 25 years. which is them acting like they're coming to the table, asked for money and then cheat their way through. were going to make sure whatever happens makes the united states safer i make sure we d nuclear as the peninsula. >> this after comments that the president would be willing to talk with north korean later. but the u.s. has a firm stance towards the kingdom. the president republican leaders met yesterday. it included a briefing by james mattis. trump said it would be a great thing for all of humanity the
peaceful solution could come out of talks with the leader, kim jong-un. i'm not messing around. not even 1%. he understands that. >> in iran, the revolutionary guard, loyal to the nation supreme leader said it has ended antigovernment protest that began on december 20. protesters rallied against high prices, high unemployment and corruption. iran blames the u.s., saudi arabia for financing the protests. the cia director denies. >> false. this was the iranian people. started, created, and continued by them demanding a better set of living conditions in a break from the regime that has been with them since 1979. >> at least 21 people were killed and hundreds arrested.
>> eric: more information on the russian investigation. president trump denies colluding with moscow. a parent of top republican senators are looking at an investigation. the former british intelligence -- carolinas in washington with more. >> democrats and republicans cranked up the fight over what the justice department should focus on in the russian investigation. potential collusion with the trump campaigner how they handled information with the clinton campaign. >> if you believe robert mueller should be looking at the trump campaign, count me in. if you ignore this stuff, your blind.
>> he means in part how the doj handled information coming from crystal steal. he's behind the unverified dossier with trump. one of the sticking points for graham said steele's research was partially funded by the democratic national committee. the fbi still considered putting him on the payroll for more information. others are complaining about how some justice department officials favored hillary clinton over trump. there were also part of the team investigating the e-mail. graham hit the top a card. >> i want to special counsel to look at how mr. steele conducted himself the what the fbi did with the dossier. and if the lead investigator had a political bias against trump or clinton to the point it was a sham investigation. >> it doesn't take a genius to see why there because they're being badgered by the white house to do it. >> robert mueller continues his investigation into potential
collusion between russian the trump campaign. >> the first blizzard of 18 has created disruptions for air travelers coast to coast. jfk airport was hard-hit is still dealing with
a backlog of flights. travelers were stuck there for days of facing long lines were shorter fuses as they try to figure out how to get to where they're going. brian is live with the very latest. >> a nightmare at jfk. according to flight radar 24, a service that tracks flights, so far eight have been diverted in the last hour away from jfk landing in boston, atlanta and montréal.
there been cancellations and delays with the frigid weather compounded by this, a water main break four hours ago. the water main frozen cold temperatures resulting in a flood of international
terminal four. water cascading on the baggage claim area. there are no international arrivals at terminal four at this time. departures are not affected. this is leading to more traffic. passengers were waiting for five plus hours. some reported no bathrooms, water or fruit. people have slept in the airport for two days. too many flights landed at the same time overwhelming the system. and not enough gates. they had to bring up portable
staircases to get people off the plane and bring them to the terminal. at baggage claim they had to wait longer. many left without their bags arrived at their destinations to find their bank never made it. then occlusion of two planes that clipped one another on the tarmac. no one was injured. port authority release the statement quote jfk's runways and taxiways are fully operational. airlines are in recovery mode rebooking passengers. frigid temperatures cause equipment failures. customers may experience residual delays. a live like here at the misery met. the two most miserable travel places tomorrow here in jfk. flights are delayed on average two and half hours.
it is not fun. a tough weekend for many. >> i feel so bad for many. thank you. >> frozen temperatures still gripping the east and midwest and extending as far south as florida. look at the manatees. they are huddling and backwater canals for extra warmth. it is a natural response for them as they try to ride out the cold winter. officials are saying do not harass them. they are considered a threatened species. >> arthel: just sessions is under fire as he is facing growing calls to resign. will president trump push him out? plus, a new lease on life for the iran nuclear deal. how the trump administration is planning to fix it instead of
scrapping it. no insights are head. heated rear seats, a panoramic sunroof, built-in 4g lte wifi, apple car play compatibility, surround vision, safety alert seat... wow. and teen driver technology. all of that, is in this one car? yeah, and to get all of these features, you would have to buy all five of those crossovers. (gasp) man: whoa! moderator: oh, and the lexus nx. that's insane. moderator: yep, all six of these, and you still wouldn't get everything that's in this equinox. man 2: chevy's raising the bar. woman: six cars in one. man 3: yeah, i like that. man 2: chevy's raising the bar. mayhem? what are you doing up there? no more mayhem. it's my new year's resolution. so what are you now? i'm a lightning rod. waiting to protect your home from a lightning strike. that's boring. you know what, tell me something i don't know. i'm allergic to pet dander. i was being sarcastic. i thought you were being a lightning rod? you're cute. whatever. can you get my plane? yeah, i don't do planes. i just do lightning. ♪
>> arthel: just sessions is taking hate from both sides of the aisle. democrats and republicans pushing back against his decision to resends and obama era policy and marijuana. he gives authority the green light -- more more gop lawmakers are calling for sessions to resign. the russian investigation showing no signs of ending. lindsey graham is coming to the defense saying mr. sentience did the right thing. >> the idea of just sessions been able to investigate the campaign he was on is unacceptable. just sessions did the right thing. it will be impossible to look into the trump campaign activities. mueller had to be investigated but we need a special site special counsel. >> arthel: can he survive? let's bring in jamie.
we just heard senator graham coming to the defense of the attorney general. others out there asking this question not necessarily in the ag favor. asking if they're trying to piece president trump. >> i think they have been embattled since day one or shortly after. donald trump has publicly traded him. he said the op-ed that two allies of donald trump row calling for just sessions to resign. basically for the way he is not protected donald trump which the president thinks he should be for this russian investigation. then you have another wing of the party, the libertarian wing of the senators from states where marijuana is functionally
legal. there are upset with reversing the policy that exempted the states from federal prosecution season embattled man had i think he will be embattled with the attorney general from day one. >> you cannot say specifically of there's a group of lawmakers that are putting the pressure on the attorney general. just in general what is the follow-up. >> there's a lot of pressure. sessions has already offered his resignation station several months back. and trump rejected it. even if he doesn't like what he has done there is an appearance problem. if they fire just sessions it won't look good.
go like what he did with james, try to cover something up. i think there's a lot of pressure not to allow push just sessions out. "fall by the wayside. i think another wrinkle that has been added to the problems just sessions is a longtime ally of steve bannon. it is bannan who got session to endorse donald trump. in the wake of this book there's reports that donald trump is going to the people close to him and steve bannon saying that you have to choose sides. that's how we saw steve miller to tv bashing steve bannon. that's right rebecca mercer came out said she had no ties to ban
them. have to wonder if that ultimatum has gone to sessions who is close to both men. and whether he'll come out publicly rebuked steve bannon as well. >> steve bannon us and he regrets making those comments, not apologizing but regrets making them. >> only to don junior. he did not say he regrets about ivanka trump and jared kushner. is a very carefully worded statement that he put out. how much of the waters under the bridge quite yet. >> what happens to the mueller investigation is sessions
resigns? >> it still goes on. trump is still have a hard time getting another attorney general in place. the senate is evenly divided and people do not want to see him fire sessions try to get a loyalist in their supposedly donald trump on someone in the doj to do. i don't think sessions is fired i think donald sharp is strongly advised not to go that route. >> is people is out there putting pressure on the attorney general. we'll leave it there. >> arrests and iran are slowing down. the claiming victory over antigovernment protesters. the opposition continues to bring freedom to iran. meanwhile, the trump administration trying to fix the nuclear deal. rather than back out of it completely.
(malo hutson) growth is good, but when it starts impacting our quality of air and quality of life, that's a problem. so forward-thinking cities like sacramento are investing in streets that are smarter and greener. the solution was right under our feet. asphalt. or to be more precise, intelligent asphalt. by embedding sensors into the pavement, as well as installing cameras on traffic lights, we will be able to analyze the flow of traffic. then that data runs across our network, and we use it to optimize the timing of lights, so that travel times are shorter. who knew asphalt could help save the environment? ♪
>> arthel: widespread protest whenever any government cooling-off as the revolutionary guard said it has put an end to days of deadly unrest. the iranian resistance is it will continue its opposition to the regime. the tracking the story in the middle east newsroom. >> after more than a week of demonstrations. protests in iran have been losing steam. they appear at least for now to be over. iran's revolutionary guard claiming victory in a statement
and i'm in the most recent unrest in the united states, israel and the saudi arabia. at least 21 people were killed. some 1700 people arrested mostly on university age students. unemployment is high. the main complaints is the awful state of the economy which is plagued by corruption and the low price of oil. protests were not started by urban iranians. so they valued as a reformer not a hardliner. in recent days supporters have had several rallies across the country. despite statements the iranian regime maintains an eye and grip on the country. with the price of world below it to ron and other countries
wanted to be, these economic hardships are likely to continue. >> the trump administration is now looking for ways to salvage the controversial nuclear deal. the u.s. is working to fix it. well mike pompeo is taking the sentiments even further. he's outlining ways in which he thinks the u.s. could tweak the pack. >> they could take some of the weaknesses from the agreement, extend deadlines, put sanctions in place with a could really happen.
and then ultimately the president will have to make the decision about whether to remain in the deal. >> jonathan is with us. always good to see. >> was the most part of the deal that we should tinker with to change. >> of the fatal flaw of the sunset provisions. in about ten years, perhaps less or more will see all the provisions of the 2015 nuclear deal expire. that means iran will have a paid pathway to nuclear weapon. there's going to be little any of us can do. we can either kick the can down the road or we can address it now. other things we probably could look at in terms of centrifuge
productions or access to military sites, perhaps are imposing sanctions, these are ways that we can address the deal as well. as the director noted, the president wants to change aspects of it. >> eric: the iranians want to that they want that sunset clause because it gives them a green light. it has dates and goes to the end says basically you ahead if you want make a nuclear bomb which the iranians have denied his their intent. >> there's no doubt they got just about everything they possibly could have wanted. all they need to do is buy their time and eventually they'll have all the money and the new get the end of it. there's a reason they want to see a change. we can change our loss in the
way we see iran holding to the deal. we can make it such that will we see them launching missiles, when we see them supporting terrorism or other violations that we have the ability to impose new sanctions or setbacks certain sanctions walkway from the deal. >> eric: but with that achieve though? you just talked about missiles that wasn't even in the deal. i'm here pants are getting billions and billions of hours thanks to the steel. they won't change. >> know, and if you look at what we want out of the deal, for able to work it out democrats and republicans come to a bipartisan agreement in terms of when we would start to impose new sanctions or walk away. >> with the europeans follow us
or be defined? there already on record saying no matter what they want change the deal, it's an international agreement, rubber stamp of approval we can change it. >> we can when you look at the power we have through sanctions. there is no power that rivals us economically. there are still some things and influence we can do. when you start to impose sanctions and put other countries and notice they can do with iran or us, but not both there to choose the united states. that's what made the sanctions work the first time around. people forget that. i don't think they would change that. >> well it was either you're with us or not when recognizing jerusalem as the capital.
so is the same countries. the marshall islands, nehru, you think really the french or german spoke on when it goes to cut off the billions of dollars? >> if you put them on notice of and start to implement the policies and i think a lot of those countries really understood the trump administration was serious. i think if we show them how serious we are they may recalculate. we let her foot off the gas and decided we would let other countries take the lead, it had a disastrous effect on our iran policy. an internationally were paying for. the idea is to get back in the driver seat. >> and then a word about the
brave demonstrators on the streets in tehran. some young people sacrifice their lives for the future of their country. what should the u.s. do to support them? >> there's two things to drive home. we need to message to the iranian people just how much they're spending on a form policy. the fact that they spend 15 billion severe in syria were 800 million a year on hezbollah were a couple hundred million on hamas. these things are make the iranian people outrage. that will not be the last of the protests we see. we need to impose sanctions on those entities. particularly the garden the crack down. if we start impose sanctions
that sends a strong message. hopefully we get the international community to jump in as well. >> will see what will happen. thank you for joining us tonig tonight. >> celebrities will be out of full force for tonight's golden glow. hollywood will have more than entertainment on its mine. i've next, the scandal that will have the color black all over the red carpet. plus jeff sessions cracking down on legalize marijuana. when status pushing back hard. a live report up ahead. >> reversing direction is an overreach not just against the city of seattle and washington, but a majority of states in this country >> tech: at safelite autoglass we know that when you're spending time with the grandkids... ♪ music >> tech: ...every minute counts. and you don't have time for a cracked windshield.
