The National for October 30, 2017: Manafort’s indictment, Liberal’s ethics questioned


>>Heather: GOOD EVENING, I’M HEATHER HISCOX AND THIS IS “THE NATIONAL.” [♪♪♪]>>CRIMINAL INDICTMENTS IN WASHINGTON.>>DO YOU COLLUDE WITH RUSSIA?>>TWO ARE CHARGED WITH CONSPIRACY AND MOUNT LAUNDERING. A THIRD PLEADS GUILTY TO LYING TO THE F.B.I.>>TODAY’S ANNOUNCEMENT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE PRESIDENT.>>ORDER.>>Heather: MORE CABINET MINISTERS ARE USING A LOOPHOLE TO KEEP CONTROL OF THEIR ASSETS.>>WHY WON’T HE TELL US WHO THEY ARE?>>Heather: WICKED WEATHER IN CENTRAL CANADA, YET ANOTHER DIRE WARNING ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT.>>>PLUS, A 24CARAT FAKE. THE MINT IS INVESTIGATING.>>THIS MAY BE THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG.>>Heather: FOR ALL THE WHITE HOUSE DENIALS AND DEFLECTIONS ABOUT COLLUSION IN THE U.S. ELECTION CAMPAIGN, THE RUSSIA INVESTIGATION IS TAKING ITS FIRST REAL SHOTS AT THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. A PILE OF SERIOUS INDICTMENTS AND AN ADMISSION OF GUILT. THE BIGGEST FISH NAMED TODAY FORMER CAMPAIGN MANAGER PAUL MANAFORT. HE AND AN ASSOCIATE FACE A TOTAL OF 12 CHARGES, INCLUDING CONSPIRACY AGAINST THE UNITED STATES. AND ANOTHER CAMPAIGN ADVISOR HAS ALREADY PLEADED GUILTY TO LYING TO THE F.B.I. SO HOW DID THE WHITE HOUSE REACT TO ALL OF THIS? AND WHAT IS NEXT? WE HAVE EXTENSIVE COVERAGE TONIGHT, BEGINNING WITH LYNDSAY DUNCOMBE.>>Reporter: THE INDICTMENT AGAINST PAUL MANAFORT READS LIKE AN EPISODE OF LIFE-STYLES OF THE RICH AND FAMOUS. TRUMP’S FORMER CAMPAIGN MANAGER ACCUSED OF LAUNDERING MILLIONS. USING THE CASH TO BUY HOMES, FANCY SUVS AND CLOTHING. THE INVESTIGATION ALLEGES MANAFORT AND HIS LONG TIME ASSOCIATE RICK GATES MADE CASH WORKING FOR PRO-RUSSIAN POLITICIANS IN UKRAINE, DIDN’T PAY TAXES ON IT AND LIED WHEN THE F.B.I. CAME CALLING. THE CHARGES INCLUDE CONSPIRACY AGAINST THE UNITED STATES, CONSPIRACY TO LAUNDER MONEY, AND POSING AS AN UNREGISTERED AGENT OF A FOREIGN PRINCIPLE. BOTH MEN PLEADED NOT GUILTY TODAY. MANAFORT’S LAWYER CALLED THE INDICTMENT RIDICULOUS.>>THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THAT MR. MANAFORT OR THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN COLLUDED WITH THE RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT.>>Reporter: NONE OF THE CHARGES IS DIRECTLY LINKED TO THE CAMPAIGN. WHICH MANAFORT RAN FOR JUST FIVE MONTHS. STARTING IN MARCH OF 2016. AND CONTINUING THROUGH THE PIVOTAL WEEKS WHEN TRUMP CLINCHED THE REPUBLICAN NOMINATION. THE PRESIDENT’S TWEET WAS PREDICTABLE. SO TOO THE WHITE HOUSE RESPONSE.>>THE ANNOUNCEMENT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE PRESIDENT, NOTHING TO DO WITH THE PRESIDENTS’ CAMPAIGN.>>Reporter: PERHAPS IN ANTICIPATION OF THE DISMISSAL, ANOTHER DEVELOPMENT FROM MUELLER’S TEAM, ONE FEW SAW COMING. DOCUMENTS UNSEALED TODAY, SHOW GEORGE PAPADOPOULOS, A FORMER FOREIGN POLICY ADVISOR TO THE CAMPAIGN, SEEN HERE IN A TWEET FROM THE PRESIDENT’S TWITTER FEED LIED TO THE F.B.I. WHAT DID HE LIE ABOUT? CONTACT WITH RUSSIA. WHAT PAPADOPOULOS INITIALLY CONCEALED AND LATER CONFESSED, EXTENSIVE CONTACT WITH THE PROFESSOR IN LONDON WHO HAD TIES TO THE KREMLIN. AT ONE POINT, THE PROFESSOR TOLD PAPADOPOULOS THE RUSSIANS HAD DIRT ON HILLARY CLINTON. SAYING THEY HAVE THOUSANDS OF E-MAILS. PAPADOPOULOS TOLD THE F.B.I. HOW HE SHARED HIS RUSSIAN CONTACTS WITH THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN. INCLUDING AN UNNAMED HIGH RANKING CAMPAIGN OFFICIAL. THE LAWYERS SAID RELEASING THAT INFORMATION ON THE SAME DAY AS THE MANAFORT AND GATES ARRESTS SENDS A MESSAGE.>>IT IS A WAY OF PUTTING PRESSURE ON OTHERS WHO THE GRAND JURY IS LOOKING AT, THAT HEY, WE ARE SERIOUS ABOUT THIS. WE WILL CHARGE INDIVIDUALS.>>Reporter: THE WHITE HOUSE CLAIM THAT PAPADOPOULOS WAS A MERE VOLUNTEER WITH NO OFFICIAL ROLE WAS CONTRADICTED BY AUDIO FROM THE WASHINGTON POST WHERE TRUMP PRAISING HIM BY NAME.>>AN ENERGY CONSULTANT, AN EXCELLENT GUY.>>Reporter: ON THE WHIRLWIND OF A DAY, ONE TAKE AWAY, THE CHARGES AGAINST MANAFORT AND GATES WILL TAKE MONTHS AT BEST TO RESOLVE. THE WHITE HOUSE SAID IT EXPECT THE MUELLER INVESTIGATION TO WRAP UP SOON. IT WON’T. LYNDSAY DUNCOMBE, CBC NEWS, WASHINGTON.>>Heather: SORTING ALL OF THIS WILL GO ON FOR SOME TIME. IT IS WORTH LOOKING BACK AT EVERYTHING THAT LED US TO THIS POINT. DURING THE REPUBLICAN NOMINATION CAMPAIGN, TRUMP NEEDED SOMEONE WHO COULD HELP HIM GET CLOSE TO THE PARTY ESTABLISHMENT. ENTER VETERAN REPUBLICAN STRATEGIST PAUL MANAFORT. WHO BECAME CHAIRMAN AND CHIEF STRATEGIST. AFTER TRUMP WON THE NOMINATION IN JULY, DONALD TRUMP Jr. AND KUSHNER AND MANAFORT MET WITH A RUSSIAN LAWYER WHO ALLEGEDLY PROMISED THEM DAMAGING INFORMATION ABOUT HILLARY CLINTON. A MONTH LATER, WIKILEAKS RELEASED NEARLY 20,000 INTERNAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY AND CLINTON CAMPAIGN E-MAILS. PROMPTING AN F.B.I. INVESTIGATION. SOON AFTER, MANAFORT QUIT AS TRUMP’S CAMPAIGN CHAIR AMID REPORTS HE RECEIVED $12 MILLION IN UNDISCLOSED CONSULTING PAYMENTS IN UKRAINE. IN MAY OF THIS YEAR, ROBERT S MUELLER WAS NAMED SPECIAL COUNSEL TO INVESTIGATE THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN’S POSSIBLE COLLUSION WITH RUSSIA TO INFLUENCE THE ELECTION. MANAFORT’S HOME WAS LATER RAIDED. AND PROSECUTORS WARNED THEY PLANNED TO INDICT HIM. THEY HAVE DONE. ALONG WITH HIS BUSINESS ASSOCIATE RICK GATES. THOUGH, THE CHARGES ARE UNRELATED TO THE INVESTIGATION. BUT THEN TODAY, THE SURPRISING GUILTY PLEA FROM GEORGE PAPADOPOULOS WHO HAS ADMITTED TO LYING TO THE F.B.I. ABOUT MEETINGS HE TOOK WITH THE RUSSIANS WHILE SERVING AS TRUMP’S FOREIGN POLICY ADVISOR IN 2016.>>>KEITH BOAG HAS BEEN KEENLY WATCHING ALL OF THE DEVELOPMENTS IN WASHINGTON. WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF TODAY’S EVENTS?>>Reporter: WELL, HEATHER, FIRST AND FOREMOST, CONTRARY TO WHAT THE WHITE HOUSE WOULD HAVE US TO BELIEVE, THE MUELLER INVESTIGATION HAS NOT LOST INTEREST IN RUSSIAN COLLUSION. EVEN THOUGH THEY BEGAN BY CHARGING MANAFORT AND HIS ASSOCIATE WITH WHITE COLLAR CRIMES SUCH AS TAX EVASION AND MONEY LAUNDERING. THOSE KINDS OF CRIMES ARE EASIER TO PROVE WITH DOCUMENTARY EVIDENCE. YOU DON’T NEED A LOT OF WITNESS TESTIMONY FOR THEM. WHEN YOU HAVE THAT EVIDENCE, YOU CAN THEN LEVERAGE TO SAY, WE HAVE A STRONG CASE, NOW YOU TELL US WHAT YOU KNOW. GIVE US THE KIND OF SWORN TESTIMONY THAT IS NOT GOING TO BE FOUND IN DOCUMENTS. SO, I THINK, THAT IS PROBABLY THE WAY THEY ARE PROCEEDING. THE OTHER IMPORTANT THING, OF COURSE, IS THAT EVERYTHING WE FOUND OUT IN THE PLEA AGREEMENT WITH GEORGE PAPADOPOULOS INDICATES ENTIRELY THAT THERE IS STILL THE INVESTIGATION — THE INVESTIGATION IS IN THE COLLUSION ANGLE.>>Heather: LET’S TALK ABOUT THAT IN MORE DETAIL. HERE WAS THE GUILTY PLEA, THE PLEA DEAL. THAT WAS THE REAL SURPRISE OF THE DAY. WHAT MADE IT SO AND WHAT IS THE PARTICULAR SIGNIFICANCE?>>Reporter: IT WAS A BIG SURPRISE. THAT IS PART OF THE STORY. THE PLEA DEAL THAT PAPADOPOULOS MADE HAD BEEN SEALED SINCE HIS GUILTY PLEA. THAT IS FOR A NUMBER OF WEEKS NOW. AND IT SUGGESTS THAT SINCE THE TIME THAT HE WAS FIRST ARRESTED IN JULY, HE HAS ACTUALLY BEEN WORKING WITH THE F.B.I. IN FACT, THEY SAID THAT ONE OF THE REASONS THAT THEY WANTED THE AGREEMENT SEALED WAS TO PROTECT HIM SO HE COULD SERVE AS A PRO-ACTIVE COOPERATOR WHICH A LOT OF EXPERTS IN THE FIELD BELIEVE HE WAS WIRED, WEARING A MICROPHONE AND RECORDING CONVERSATIONS. IF THERE ARE PEOPLE IN THE WHITE HOUSE WHO HAVE SOMETHING TO HIDE AND HAVE BEEN TALKING TO PAPADOPOULOS, THEY WILL HAVE A LOT OF SLEEPLESS NIGHTS AS THEY WONDER WHAT HE CAPTURED UPON TAPE OF WHAT THEY MAY HAVE SAID TO HIM.>>Heather: THANK YOU.>>>IT IS A PERFECT TIME TO CALL IN OUR WASHINGTON INSIDERS. THEIR TAKE ON THE INVESTIGATION AND THE RAMIFICATIONS COMING UP A LITTLE LATER.>>>THE FINANCE MINISTER BILL MORNEAU HAS BEEN RAKED OVER THE COALS IN RECENT WEEKS BECAUSE HE DID NOT PUT HIS SUBSTANTIAL ASSETS INTO A BLIND TRUST WHEN HE MOVED FROM BUSINESS INTO POLITICS. WELL, IT TURNS OUT, SEVERAL OTHER LIBERAL CABINET MINISTERS ARE USING THE SAME LOOPHOLE. TODAY’S REVELATION FROM THE ETHICS COMMISSIONER BROUGHT RENEWED ATTACKS IN THE HOUSE. A TIT FOR TAT RESPONSE FROM THE PRIME MINISTER.>>IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW WHO THE CABINET MINISTERS ARE.>>Reporter: AFTER ATTACKING BILL MORNEAU, THE CONSERVATIVES WENT AFTER HIS COLLEAGUES, FOLLOWING REVELATIONS THAT THREE OR FOUR MORE UNNAMED CABINET MINISTERS DON’T HAVE THEIR ASSETS IN BLIND TRUST EITHER.>>LIKE THE FINANCE MINISTER, THEY COULD BE PROFITING FROM INVESTMENTS AND STOCKS WHILE MAKING DECISIONS THAT COULD IMPACT THE VALUE OF THEIR OWN ASSETS. IF THE PRIME MINISTER IS SO SURE AND SO PROUD THAT THEY ARE CALLING ALL THE RULES, WHY WON’T HE TELL US WHO THEY ARE.>>Prime Minister Justin Trudeau: THE MECHANISM THAT THE FINANCE MINISTER CURRENTLY HAS IN PLACE ARE VERY SIMILAR TO THE MECHANISMS THAT THE PREVIOUS CONSERVATIVE FINANCE MINISTER HAD IN PLACE.>>Reporter: RIGHT THERE, FROM THE PRIME MINISTER, YOU HEARD THE BEGINNING OF THE COUNTER ATTACK. THE LIBERALS COVERING THEIR ASSETS BY ATTACKING THE ASSETS OF CONSERVATIVES.>>THE FORMER FINANCE MINISTER, JOE OLIVER, WAS THE SOLE OWNER OF A CORPORATION THAT HELD PUBLICLY TRADED SECURITYS.>>Reporter: THE FINANCE MINISTER USED SIMILAR STRUCTURES WITH KEY DIFFERENCES. JOE OLIVER OWNED A PRIVATE COMPANY AND ALSO DID NOT USE A BLIND TRUST. BUT OLIVER’S COMPANY OWNED POOLED FUNDS LIKE MUTUAL FUNDS AND ALLOWED UNDER THE CONFLICT OF INTEREST ACT. BILL MORNEAU’S PRIVATE COMPANY OWNS STOCKS IN THE FAMILY COMPANY. A COMPANY THAT DOES SOME WORK IN AN INDUSTRY HE REGULATES WHICH IS WHAT HAS FUELLED THE OPPOSITION ATTACK.>>THE FINANCE MINISTER IS MIRED IN AN ETHICAL CESSPOOL OF HIS MAKING AND SEEMS HAPPY TO REMAIN THERE.>>Prime Minister Justin Trudeau: THE FINANCE MINISTER, ALL MINISTERS IN THE HOUSE AND THE MINISTERS OF THE PREVIOUS CONSERVATIVE GOVERNMENT FOLLOW THE ADVICE AND THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE CONFLICT OF INTEREST AND ETHICS COMMISSIONER.>>Reporter: AS EXPLANATIONS GO, THE N.D.P. SAID THAT IS WEAK.>>TO SAY HARPER DID IT, SO NOW TRUDEAU WILL DO IT. IF THAT IS THEIR ARGUMENT TO CANADIANS, THAT IS A REVELATION.>>Reporter: WHAT THE CONSERVATIVES CALL AN ETHICAL CESSPOOL WAS SIGNED OFF ON BY THE ETHICS COMMISSIONER. THAT IS WHY THE N.D.P. WANTS THE RULES THEMSELVES TO GO UNDER THE MICROSCOPE. THEY ASKED THE PARLIAMENTARY COMMITTEE TO STUDY THE CONFLICT OF INTEREST LAWS AND RECOMMEND CHANGES.>>Heather: THE NATIONAL INQUIRY INTO MISSING AND MURDERED INDIGENOUS WOMEN AND GIRLS MOVED TO NOVA SCOTIA TODAY. THIS IS THE FOURTH STOP AFTER WHITEHORSE, NORTHERN B.C. AND WINNIPEG. THE FINAL HEARINGS BEFORE THE REPORT IS PUBLISHED LATER THIS WEEK. ONE FAMILY TOLD THEIR STORY OF LOSS AND MISTREATMENT TODAY. TOM MURPHY HAS THAT TONIGHT.>>Reporter: A FIRE IN A TEPEE. PRAYERS ARE OFFERED. A SOURCE OF STRENGTH FOR THOSE WHO WILL TESTIFY. THE SANDERS FAMILY WOULD NEED IT.>>Interview: I WAS ASHAMED TO BE INUKE.>>Reporter: HER DAUGHTER WENT MISSING AND THRUST INTO THE SPOTLIGHT.>>Interview: SHE HAD THE BEST LAUGH.>>Reporter: A BLOND HAIRED WOMAN WHO DID NOT AT FIRST GLANCE APPEAR INDIGENOUS. AN HONOURS DEGREE STUDENT IN HALIFAX, WRITING HER THESIS ON MISSING AND MURDERED WOMEN AND GIRLS. SHE WAS PREGNANT. EXCELLING AT SCHOOL AND THEN SHE WENT MISSING.>>Interview: I DIDN’T REALIZE HOW BIG OF AN ISSUE IT WAS UNTIL IT HAPPENED TO MY FAMILY.>>Reporter: THE FEAR THAT THE POLICE WILL NOT TAKE SUCH A CASE SERIOUSLY, A REALITY FOR SO MANY FAMILIES OF THE MISSING AND MURDERED.>>WHEN MY DAUGHTER FIRST WENT MISSING, THEY HAD A WHITE WOMAN WITH THEM AND I STARTED TO CLAP BECAUSE — I KNEW THEY WERE GOING TO — >>Reporter: SHE THOUGHT THEY WOULD HELP HER.>>Interview: I WOULD CALL TO THE INVESTIGATORS AND THEY WOULD ANSWER ME, I WOULD TALK PERSONALLY TO THE INVESTIGATORS.>>Interview: WHEN A WHITE WOMAN GOES MISSING, THERE IS SO MUCH MORE EFFORT PUT IN. THERE IS MORE PUBLIC OUTCRY.>>Reporter: THE POLICE ARRESTED LORETTA SANDERS KILLERS, HER ROOMMATES WITHIN DAYS OF HER DEATH.>>I SAW HOW HER — IT HELPED THE SITUATION.>>Interview: I AM STARTING TO SEE A LOT OF BLESSING SINCE LORETTA HAS GONE TO HEAVEN.>>Reporter: A BLESSING, A FIRE HAS BEEN SPARKED IN MARIANNE SAUNDERS TO FIGHT FOR HER PEOPLE. THE ANGUISHED TURNED ACTIVIST.>>Interview: I HAVE BEEN INTRODUCED AS THE QUIET ONE. GUESS WHAT, WE ARE NOT QUIET MORE. THANKS TO MY DAUGHTER. SHE LEFT SOMETHING IN ME THAT I WILL NEVER LET GO. NEVER.>>Reporter: AS MORE PEOPLE LINE UP TO TELL THEIR STORIES, THE COMMISSION IS LOOKING FOR MORE TIME TO HOLD SIMILAR HEARINGS. AS THE INQUIRY REACHES A CRITICAL MILESTONE. THE RELEASE OF AN INTERIM REPORT ON WEDNESDAY. TOM MURPHY, CBC NEWS, NOVA SCOTIA.>>Heather: COMING UP, A CAUTIONARY TALE ABOUT POSTING REVIEWS ONLINE.>>>PLUS…>>>COULD THIS BE A FUTURE OLYMPIC SPORT? NOT UNTIL ONE BIG QUESTION IS ANSWERED.>>ARE YOU CANOEING OR SURFING.>>FIERCE WINDS AND HEAVY RAIN IN EASTERN CANADA. THIS IS WHAT THE OTTAWA AREA LOOKED LIKE TODAY. STRANDED CARS IN KNEE DEEP WATER. 10 CENTIMETRES OF RAIN FELL BETWEEN YESTERDAY AND THIS MORNING. THAT IS MORE THAN THE ENTIRE MONTHLY AVERAGE FOR OCTOBER.>>>IN QUEBEC, WIND GUSTS OF 90 km/h UPROOTED TREES AND KNOCKED DOWN WIRES. POWER WAS OUT TO 200,000 HOMES AND BUSINESSES. TONIGHT, PARTS OF WESTERN NEWFOUNDLAND ARE EXPECTING WIND GUSTS UP TO 150 km/h.>>>SCIENTISTS SOUND THE ALARM TODAY ABOUT A RECORD AMOUNT OF CARBON DIOXIDE IN OUR ATMOSPHERE. THE WORLD METEOROLOGICAL ORGANIZATION SAID CO2 LEVELS IN 2016 ROSE AT A RECORD PACE TO A LEVEL NOT SEEN IN 800,000 YEARS. RESEARCHERS BLAME THE SPIKE ON HUMAN ACTIVITY. AND A STRONG EL NINO SEASON.>>WE CHANGED THE CLIMATE AND HAVE SEEN NOT ONLY WARMING BUT WE HAVE SEEN CHANGES IN THE RAIN PATTERNS, FLOODING.>>Heather: THE UNITED NATIONS WARNS THAT AT THIS RATE, TARGETS SET JUST TWO YEARS AGO IN PARIS WILL NOT BE ENOUGH. CALLING FOR DRASTIC ACTION AT A CONFERENCE IN GERMANY NEXT WEEK.>>>LATER THIS WEEK, OUR SCIENCE CORRESPONDENT BOB MacDONALD WILL ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS ON CLIMATE CHANGE. TUNE IN FRIDAY NIGHT FOR A SPECIAL EDITION OF ASK BOB ON “THE NATIONAL.”>>>CBC NEWS HAS LEARNED THE SURPRISING FREQUENCY OF STATE SPONSORED CYBERATTACKS ON CANADIAN GOVERNMENT COMPUTERS. THEY NUMBER IN THE THOUSANDS. A NEW PUBLIC SAFETY CANADA REPORT SAID FOR THE MOST PART, DEFENSES ARE HOLDING. BUT SOME ATTACKS ARE GETTING THROUGH. TOM PERRY HAS THE DETAILS.>>Reporter: THIS STUDY BY CANADA’S PUBLIC SAFETY DEPARTMENT DEPARTMENT IS A BIT OF THE REPORT CARD ON THE GOVERNMENT’S EFFORTS TO PROTECT THE COMPUTER NETWORKS. THERE ARE SOME GOOD GRADES AND SOME AREAS WHERE THERE IS ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT. A PUBLIC SAFETY LOOKS AT STATE SPONSORED CYBERACTIVITIES AGAINST CANADIAN GOVERNMENT COMPUTER NETWORKS. FOREIGN REGIMES TRYING TO BREAK INTO CANADIAN COMPUTERS. THE REPORT SAID THAT BETWEEN 2013 AND 2015, THERE WERE ON AVERAGE, MORE THAN 2500 INCIDENTS PER YEAR OF STATE-SPONSORED ACTORS TRYING TO BREACH THE GOVERNMENT’S NETWORKS. YOU DO THE MATH. THAT IS ABOUT 50 ATTEMPTS A WEEK. THE REPORT SAID IN 2015, ONLY ABOUT 2% OF THOSE ATTEMPTS WERE SUCCESSFUL. BUT THERE IS NO MENTION REALLY OF HOW SERIOUS ANY OF THOSE BREACHES MAY HAVE BEEN. THE REPORT DOES SAY THERE IS 2% FIGURE IS DOWN FROM EARLIER YEARS. IN 2013, IT SAYS 6% OF THE ATTEMPTS GOT THROUGH. NOW, THE REPORT NOTES THERE ARE PEOPLE IN GOVERNMENT SAYING THERE SHOULD BE A ZERO TOLERANCE FOR THE TYPES OF BREACHES. THERE ARE OTHERS WHO SAY IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO STOP THEM ALL. AND JUST TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF HOW MANY ATTACKS THE GOVERNMENT IS DEALING WITH, THE COMMUNICATION SECURITY ESTABLISHMENT HAS TAKEN A LEAD ROLE TO PROTECT THE GOVERNMENT’S NETWORKS. IT SAYS IT BLOCKS HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF ATTEMPTS TO FIND WEAKNESSES IN OTTAWA’S COMPUTER SYSTEM EVERY DAY. IT WILL NOT BREAK DOWN WHERE THEY COME FROM. IT SAYS IT DOES CONTINUE TO SEE EFFORTS BY STATE SPONSORED ACTORS TO ACCESS GOVERNMENT OF CANADA SYSTEMS.>>Heather: A U.S. FEDERAL JUDGE BLOCKED DONALD TRUMP’S PLAN TO BAN TRANSGENDER PEOPLE FROM SERVING IN THE MILITARY. TRUMP HAD DIRECTED THE MILITARY TO STOP ACCEPTING TRANSGENDER RECRUITS. AND TO DISCHARGE T THOSE IN THE SERVICE BY NEXT MARCH. TRANSGENDER SERVICE MEMBERS CALL THE DECISION A WIN. THE U.S. JUSTICE DEPARTMENT SAID IT IS DISAPPOINTED AND WILL REVIEW THE RULES.>>>CONTROVERSIAL U.S. SOLDIER BOWE BERGDAHL TOOK THE STAND AT HIS SENTENCING HEARING. HE OFFERED AN EMOTIONAL APOLOGY TO THE COMRADES WOUNDED IN THE SEARCH TO FIND HIM AFTER HE WALKED AWAY FROM HIS BASE IN AFGHANISTAN IN 2009. BERGDAHL WAS LATER CAPTURED BY MILITANTS. HE FACES LIFE IN PRISON FOR DESERTION AND MISBEHAVIOUR BEFORE THE ENEMY.>>>A U.S. MILITARY OFFICIAL SAID THEY HAVE CAUGHT ANOTHER SUSPECT IN THE DEADLY 2012 BENGHAZI ATTACK. CAPTURED IN A RAID IN LIBYA. FOUR AMERICANS DIED IN THE ATTACK ON THE U.S. DIPLOMATIC COMPOUND FIVE YEARS AGO. THE SUSPECTED MASTERMIND OF THE ATTACK IS CURRENTLY ON TRIAL IN WASHINGTON.>>>CIVIL SERVANTS IN CATALONIA WERE BACK AT WORK TODAY FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE MADRID SEIZED CONTROL OF THE REGIONAL GOVERNMENT OVER THE WEEKEND. CATALONIA HAS BEEN LEFT IN A LIMBO OF SORTS. THE PARLIAMENT DISSOLVED. FUTURE UNCERTAIN. AND NOW, SPAIN HAS ANNOUNCED CHARGES AGAINST SEPARATIST LEADERS. MARGARET EVANS HAS THE LATEST FROM BARCELONA.>>Reporter: BARCELONA STREETS ARE NOT AS THEY SHOULD BE. ESPECIALLY FOR THE START OF THE WEEK. THE TAXI DRIVER SHOULD KNOW. HE SAID CATALONIA’S CRISIS HAS BUSINESSES LEAVING, TOURISTS STARTING TO STAY AWAY.>>GOING DOWN. THEY ARE LOSING SO MUCH MONEY. YOU CAN SEE IT IS LATE, IT IS NOT BUSY.>>Reporter: THIS IS NOT JUST ANY WORKDAY. IT IS THE FIRST SINCE SPAIN IMPOSED DIRECT RULE ON CATALONIA OVER THE WEEKEND. LEAVING MANY CIVIL SERVANTS BEWILDERED. THIS WOMAN, AMONGST THEM.>>Interview: PEOPLE FROM THE SPANISH GOVERNMENT THAT WANT TO COME HERE TO — I THINK THEY ARE NOT GOING TO SEE — TO HAVE THINGS EASY.>>Reporter: CROWDS OF JOURNALISTS AND CURIOSITY SEEKERS GATHERED OUTSIDE THE SEAT OF THE REGIONAL GOVERNMENT ALL DAY LONG. THE GOVERNMENT THAT WAS FIRED ON MASS ON SATURDAY. IF WE PAN UP TO THE TOP OF THE BUILDING, YOU WILL SEE THAT BOTH FLAGS, SPANISH AND CATALONIAN ARE FLYING. BUT AUTHORITIES IN MADRID SAID MAKE NO MISTAKE, THEY ARE THE ONES WHO ARE IN CHARGE. SPAIN’S STATE PROSECUTOR MADE HIS MOVE AT A PRESS CONFERENCE TODAY. ANNOUNCING CHARGES OF REBELLION, AND MISUSE OF FUNDS AGAINST THE MAIN CATALAN LEADERS. AS FOR THE DEPOSED PRESIDENT, THEY SEEK HIM HERE AND THERE.>>WHERE IS HE?>>I DON’T KNOW. I CANNOT — THE PRESIDENT SHOULD STAY.>>Reporter: HE IS IN BRUSSELS REPORTEDLY. RUMORED TO BE SPEAKING TOMORROW. MEANWHILE, THE SPANISH GOVERNMENT MOVES AHEAD WITH ITS PLANS TO HOLD NEW ELECTIONS IN CATALONIA IN DECEMBER. BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN THE DREAM OF INDEPENDENCE WILL FADE.>>Interview: MAYBE IT IS ONLY THE BEGINNING. BUT I THINK SOMETHING HAS CHANGED FOR GOOD.>>Reporter: MAYBE LITTLE HAS CHANGED. TWO FLAGS ARE STILL FLYING OVER A DISPUTED HOUSE. MARGARET EVANS, CBC NEWS, BARCELONA.>>THE ALLEGATIONS AGAINST AN OSCAR W ♪ [theme] Reporter: Rolling Stones fans
were absolutely delighted with the judge’s decision not
to send their hero to jail. Noting that Keith Richards
isn’t your usual drug addict the judge imposed an
extraordinary sentence, including the obligation to give
a special benefit concert for young people
here in Toronto at the Canadian National
Institute for the Blind. I feel very good
about it, obviously. I think it’s fair.
Slightly strange. Reporter: Richards told the
news conference that he wouldn’t recommend
the use of drugs. But he wasn’t about
to become a preacher. I guess our music will
reflect the change — any changes in attitude that
are prevalent amongst society, and amongst people. We can’t do any
more than that, you know? Michael Vaughan was there to see
Richards serve his sentence. ♪ ♪ Vaughan: Only 9,000 tickets were
available for the two concerts, and of those, nearly a third
were given free of charge to blind people. Other rock fans,
not to be denied, perhaps the only Rolling Stones
concert of the year, eagerly paid $75 a ticket
to scalpers. ♪ [Rolling Stones’,
“Star Star”] The performers are collecting
no fees or travel expenses for these shows. However, rock concerts
are expensive to stage and the Canadian National
Institute for the Blind expects to show little,
if any, profit. ♪ ♪ For Keith Richards, these
concerts were a condition of his probation
and suspended sentence resulting from a drug
conviction recently in Toronto. But the federal Department of
Justice wants to appeal for a stiffer sentence
for Richards, perhaps the sentence of jail. There are plans for him
to meet authorities tomorrow to be served with the official
notice of that appeal. ♪ [theme]>>Heather: THE QUEBEC MAN AT THE CENTER OF AN AMBER ALERT LAST MONTH WAS CHARGED IN THE DEATH OF HIS GIRLFRIEND AND AN ELDERLY MAN. HE FACES A FIRST DEGREE MURDER CHARGE IN CONNECTION WITH THE DEATH. HE HAS BEEN CHARGED WITH SECOND DEGREE MURDER RELATING TO THE DEATH OF YVONNE LACASSE. HE WAS ARRESTED AFTER A 6-YEAR-OLD BOY WENT MISSING. THE CAR HE WAS DRIVING AT THE TIME BELONGED TO LACASSE. THE 71-YEAR-OLD’S BODY WAS FOUND DAYS LATER.>>>KEVIN SPACEY HAS APOLOGIZED TO AN ACTOR WHO ACCUSED HIM OF SEXUAL MISCONDUCT IN THE 1980s. IT IS WHAT HE ANNOUNCED AT THE SAME TIME, THAT IS STIRRING ANGRY REACTION. ANTHONY RAPP SAID WHEN HE WAS 14, SPACEY MADE INAPPROPRIATE ADVANCES TO HIM. SPACEY SAID HE DOES NOT REMEMBER THE ENCOUNTER BUT APOLOGIZED IN A STATEMENT. HE REVEALED HE IS CHOOSING TO LIVE AS A GAY MAN. THE PRESIDENT OF THE GAY RIGHTS GROUP GLAD SAID COMING OUT STORIES SHOULD NOT DEFLECT FROM SEXUAL ASSAULT. OTHERS WENT FURTHER…>>>SUED BY A CONTRACTOR, DUMPED BY A DOCTOR, DENIED A REFUND FOR A REPAIR JOB THAT NEVER HAPPENED. SOME CONSUMERS WHO HAVE VENTED ONLINE ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCES ARE NOW FACING NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES. AND AS ROSA MARCHITELLI FOUND, THEY HAVE VERY LITTLE LEGAL PROTECTION.>>Reporter: ONLINE REVIEWS LANDED A COUPLE IN COURT. AFTER THEY POSTED ABOUT A BAD EXPERIENCE WITH A CONTRACTOR. A DEFAMATION LAWSUIT WAS FILED. GO PUBLIC SPOKE TO VARY. HE WANTS TO WARN OTHERS AND IS WORRIED. SAYING…>>Interview: I WAS SHOCKED.>>Reporter: THE FOUNDER OF HOME START.>>I HAVE A REAL CONCERN WITH IT. YOU KNOW, I THINK THERE SHOULD BE FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND CONSUMERS HAVE THE RIGHT TO THEIR OPINION.>>Reporter: ACCORDING TO COURT DOCUMENTS, THE CONTRACTOR FILED TWO LAWSUITS AGAINST THE COUPLE. ONE FOR BREACH OF CONTRACT. AND AT $3 MILLION DEFAMATION SUIT. THE COMPANY ALLEGING IT SUFFERED AND CONTINUES TO SUFFER A LOSS OF REPUTATION. AS A DIRECT OR INDIRECT RESULT OF THE COUPLE’S REVIEWS. REVIEWS LIKE DESIGN SPEC HAS UNPROFESSIONAL STAFF AND DID NOT TAKE OWNERSHIP OR RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE MISTAKES. MOST OF THE OTHER REVIEWS ARE EXCELLENT. THE COUPLE STRUCK A DEAL IN THE END, PAYING OUT 100,000 FOR SUPPLIES AND LABOUR. THE CONTRACTOR PROVIDED. AND IN EXCHANGE, THE CONTRACTOR DROPPED THE $3 MILLION DEFAMATION SUIT. NOTHING WAS PROVEN IN COURT. JESSICA WAS DUMPED BY HER DOCTOR AFTER POSTING A NEGATIVE REVIEW ON RATE MD.COM.>>I WANTED TO GET MY EXPERIENCE WITH HIM OUT THERE.>>Reporter: AN APPLIANCE REPAIR COMPANY TRIED TO STOP HEATHER FROM WRITING A REVIEW AT ALL. IT OFFERED A PARTIAL REFUND AFTER PROBLEMS. BUT ONLY IF SHE SIGNED AWAY A WRITE TO POST ONLINE.>>I THINK IT IS DISGUSTING. WE LIVE IN A WORLD IS WHERE WE HAVE OUR VOICES.>>Reporter: THE LAWYER SAID LAWS ACROSS THE COUNTRY NEED TO BE UPDATED. TO PROTECT THE BUSINESSES ONLINE REPUTATION AND AVOID WHAT SHE CALLS LIBEL CHILL.>>Interview: WHERE THE THREAT OF LAWSUIT MAY PREVENT A CONSUMER FROM SPEAKING THEIR MIND.>>Reporter: NEITHER THE COMPANIES OR THE DOCTOR INVOLVED WOULD ANSWER OUR QUESTIONS. CBC NEWS, CALGARY.>>Heather: WONDERING WHY THE U.S. SPECIAL PROSECUTOR WENT AFTER SUCH BIG FISH TODAY? OUR WASHINGTON INSIDERS ON TODAY’S CHARGES AND LEVERAGE NEXT. ♪ [dreamy] Reporter:
This is Roger Tetreault. He’s a Montreal
bill collector– that’s his job. He also holds
news conferences– that’s his hobby. [speaking French] Reporter: Here’s Tetreault three
years ago, posing as the president
of a fictional group called “Water Aid For America,” urging that Canada
ship its water to the drought-stricken US. The national media
gobbled it up. News Announcer:
Here is the CBC News. A group of Montreal residents
wants to pressure the Canadian government
into diverting water from the Great Lakes into
the Mississippi River. Reporter: The French language
network of the CBC believed Tetreault was also
a nuclear expert. [speaking French] Reporter: Here he is telling
a national audience how the Chernobyl disaster
could rain down assorted horrors
on North Americans. The now-defunct
Montreal Daily News had him under another name,
Tuball Cane, and yet another vocation. It’s been going on
for years. In 1971, the Montreal Star
thought it had a scoop. An internal
CIA memo outlining covert operations
in Quebec. It even made
The National on CBC. Under a CIA letterhead,
the document reads “Subject: Quebec.” Reporter: It was Tetreault’s
work, of course. Around the same time,
he suckered the Toronto Star Weekly with
a phony FLQ terrorist camp in the Laurentian Hills. I told myself,
“If they want fiction, I’ll give them fiction.”
So I gave them fiction. Reporter: Tetreault says there
are many others like him, only nowadays, they’re known as
“media consultants” and “spin doctors.” Whoever’s got
an axe to grind, they give
their spin to it, and they get
into the media, and that’s the story
that goes out. He’s absolutely right. Governments, anybody
who’s covered governments or followed things
they do know that they engage in this, whether you want to call them
trial balloons or disinformation,
they do it frequently. Reporter: Is Tetreault’s career
as a hoaxer over? Perhaps. But he says he’ll
certainly keep trying, guided by
the firm belief that there’s a reporter born
every minute. He mouthed two words,
the first word of which started with F and the second
word of which started with O. Well, it’s a lie, because
I didn’t say anything. Reporter: Sir,
did you mouth it? What does mouth mean? Reporter: Move your lips. Yes, I moved my lips. Reporter: In the words
you’ve been quoted as saying? No. [crosstalk]
What were you thinking when you moved
your lips? What is the nature of
your thoughts, gentlemen, when you say fuddleduddle
or something like that? God! Well, the big topic
on Parliament Hill today wasn’t the Constitution,
it wasn’t the economy, it was the Prime Minister
and his language. I heard him say
very clearly [bleep]ing bastard. I convey to the Speaker my regrets for
any inconvenience and I convey to any honourable
member of the House of my regrets to them. Just quiet down, baby. [laughter, oohing] Reporter: Liberal Sheila Copps
didn’t think the remark was very funny. I’m not his baby,
and I’m nobody’s baby, and I’d like him to
withdraw those remarks. The House is no stranger
to heated exchanges, but few have been this heated
or this strange. -Did he–
-For shame. Now, I hear the word racist
from that side. Do you have the fortitude
or the gonads to stand up and come across here
and say that to me, you son of a bitch?
Come on! [oohing] -Darrel.
-Darrel. Order. -I will not have some asshole–
-Order. sit there and
call me a racist! Reporter: Stinson
came within three metres of Liberal John Cannis
before returning to his seat. Reporter: That was too much
for one Liberal MP. [oohing] I did not say fuddleduddle,
that was another generation. I think that
we’ve reached a point where this type of conduct
that’s not only disgraceful, but it’s unacceptable. ♪ ♪ [♪♪♪]>>Heather: IT MAY JUST BE THE BEGINNING OF CHARGES LAID IN ROBERT MUELLER’S INVESTIGATION. DONALD TRUMP’S FORMER CAMPAIGN CHAIRMAN, PAUL MANAFORT AND HIS ASSOCIATE RICK GATES ARE UNDER HOUSE ARREST TONIGHT. AND FORMER TRUMP FOREIGN POLICY ADVISOR GEORGE PAPADOPOULOS PLEADED GUILTY TO LYING TO THE F.B.I. IT IS DEFINITELY A DAY FOR THE WASHINGTON WATCH PANEL. WITH US TONIGHT, THE BOSTON HERALD IN WASHINGTON. IN NEW YORK, OF THE WASHINGTON POST. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE AFTER THE EXTRAORDINARY DAY. AND KIMBERLY, LET ME BEGIN WITH YOU. THE INDICTMENTS, NOTHING IN THE MANAFORT, GATE INDICTMENTS MENTIONS DONALD TRUMP, MENTIONS THE CAMPAIGN, MENTIONS THE WHITE HOUSE. SO WHY HAS ROBERT MUELLER STARTED THERE WITH THOSE?>>Interview: WELL, IT SEEMS THAT ROBERT MUELLER IS TAKING THE APPROACH OF DOING A ROLLING INVESTIGATION. THIS IS NOT AN INVESTIGATION THAT IS GOING TO GET TO THE END. WE WILL FIND OUT WHAT THE CHARGES MIGHT BE. HE IS GOING TO FILE THE CHARGES WHEN HE HAS THEM. THERE WAS ALSO SOME IDEA THAT THERE MAY HAVE BEEN SOME STATUTE OF LIMITATION ISSUES ON SOME OF THE MANAFORT CHARGES. IT IS CLEAR THAT THIS INVESTIGATION IS BROAD. IT IS NOT JUST LIMITED TO THE CAMPAIGN. AND CAMPAIGN ACTIVITY. IT IS LIMITED TO WHATEVER POTENTIAL CRIMES THAT THEY FIND. BUT IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT THESE MAY NOT BE THE ONLY CHARGES THAT PAUL MANAFORT FACES. THEY COULD BE USED AS A CRUCIAL NEGOTIATING POINT IF MUELLER WANTS TO GET CLOSER TO WHAT ACTUALLY WAS HAPPENING TO — WITHIN THE CAMPAIGN AND TRY TO PUSH HIM TO NEGOTIATE.>>Heather: PICK UP ON THAT NEGOTIATING POINT. I HEARD LEGAL EXPERTS TALKING ABOUT LEVERAGE. ONE ACTUALLY SAID MANAFORT KNOWS WHERE THE BODIES ARE BURIED. SO THE STRATEGY OF STARTING THERE AND WHERE IT MAY LEAD. WHAT DO YOU THINK IN TERMS OF MUELLER’S STRATEGY?>>Interview: YEAH, IF WE ASSUME FOR EXAMPLE THAT THERE ARE BODIES THAT ARE BURIED SOMEWHERE, THAT IS TO SAY IF WE ASSUME THERE IS SOME BIGGER PICTURE, COLLUSION, AND BIGGER PICTURE CRIME AT STAKE HERE, BY GETTING PAUL MANAFORT INDICTED EARLY, THAT GIVES ROBERT MUELLER LEVERAGE IN THE SENSE THAT MANAFORT IS A BIG FISH. HE WAS A CAMPAIGN CHAIRMAN AND HAD A HIGH RANKING POSITION WITH THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN. HE THEREFORE COULD POTENTIALLY BE LEVERAGED IN ORDER TO PROVIDE TESTIMONY AGAINST SOMEONE ELSE IF SOMEONE DOES NOT WANT PAUL MANAFORT TO GO TO TRIALS. THERE ARE WAYS TO USE MANAFORT’S INDICTMENT AS A WAY OF GETTING OTHER PEOPLE TO SAY WHAT THEY KNOW. IF THERE ARE OTHER THINGS TO BE SAID, THAT IS ONE REASON WHY MANAFORT MAY HAVE BEEN TARGETED EARLY.>>Heather: OTHER AREAS ABOUT WHICH TO GAIN INFORMATION. CONTINUE ON. I MEAN WE DON’T KNOW IF MANAFORT WILL COOPERATE. IF HE DOES, I WOULD IMAGINE THAT ONE OF THE THINGS MUELLER WOULD WANT TO ASK ABOUT IS THE 2016 MEETING THAT DONALD TRUMP Jr. SET UP THAT MANAFORT WAS IN ATTENDANCE. JARED WAS IN ATTENDANCE. ON THAT EVENT, WHAT WOULD HE WANT TO GLEAN FROM THAT?>>Interview: SOMETHING THAT DREW A LOT OF ATTENTION SINCE REVEALED LAST — EARLIER THIS YEAR, AND THE QUESTION THAT IS REALLY INHERENT THERE IS WHAT DID PAUL MANAFORT AND JARED KUSHNER FOE ABOUT THE MEETING BEFORE THEY WENT INTO IT. DID THEY KNOW DONALD TRUMP Jr. HAD A CONVERSATION WITH THE GUY. WHO HE SPOKE ABOUT THE DIRT ON HILLARY CLINTON. AT THE MEETING ITSELF, IT WAS REPORTED THAT MANAFORT SPENT THE TIME ON HIS PHONE. THAT IS WHAT DONALD TRUMP Jr.. WE FOUND HE HAD NOTES AND HAD BEEN TAKING NOTES OF WHAT WAS SAID THERE. PERHAPS THERE IS MORE TO THE PICTURE THAN WE KNOW. I WILL POINT OUT THAT THIS YEAR, THE POST REPORTED THAT MANAFORT HAD SOUGHT TO SET UP A PRIVATE BRIEFING FOR AN OLGARTH WHO HE HAD LONG STANDING BUSINESS RELATIONS WHO CAME UP FREQUENTLY IN THE INDICTMENT TODAY. THERE MAY BE MORE THERE. MANAFORT MAY HAVE BEEN TRYING TO LEVERAGE HIS POSITION TO MAKE GOOD TO DEBTS THAT HE OWED. THERE ARE ALL THE WAYS MANAFORT — THERE COULD BE MORE TO THE STORY WE DON’T KNOW.>>Heather: BACK TO YOU ON THE OTHER THING THAT HAPPENED TODAY. THAT WAS IN MANY WAYS MORE SURPRISING, THE GUILTY PLEA AND THE DETAILS OF THE PLEA DEAL THAT GEORGE PAPADOPOULOS STRUCK, THE FORMER FOREIGN POLICY ADVISOR. A LOT OF PROSECUTOR TYPES SAID HE MAY HAVE BEEN WEARING A WIRE. THAT IS WHAT WE GET FROM THE DOCUMENTS. HOW DOES THE GUILTY PLEA, HOW DOES THE REVELATIONS, HOW DO THEY FIT IN WITH TODAY?>>Interview: I THINK THAT IS PROBABLY THE MOST INTERESTING AND SURPRISING THING THAT WE SAW TODAY. IT SHOWED THAT THIS INVESTIGATION IS GETTING PEOPLE TO FLIP. GETTING PEOPLE TO COOPERATE WITH THE INVESTIGATORS. IN EXCHANGE FOR A MORE LENIENT DEAL IF THEY ARE — IF THEY TOO ARE FACING CHARGES. THE CHARGES THAT PAPADOPOULOS WAS FACING WAS ESSENTIALLY LYING TO THE F.B.I. NOWHERE NEAR THE SERIOUS CHARGES THAT MANAFORT IS FACING. BUT ENOUGH TO GET HIM TO COOPERATE TO TALK ABOUT THE MEETINGS WHICH IS THE CLOSEST — THE MOST CLEAR INFORMATION THAT WE HAVE HAD SO FAR OF A CONNECTION BETWEEN THE CAMPAIGN AND RUSSIAN OFFICIALS. AND IT IS REPORTED THAT ONE OF THE PEOPLE THAT SPOKE TO ABOUT THE POTENTIAL — TRYING TO SET UP MEETINGS WITH RUSSIANS WAS MANAFORT. SO THIS COULD IMPLICATE OTHER PEOPLE. IT SHOWS AS WE WAIT TO SEE HOW THE INVESTIGATION TOUCHES PEOPLE LIKE MICHAEL FLYNN OR DONALD TRUMP JUNIOR, THE METHOD THAT MUELLER IS TAKING, ESTABLISHING EVIDENCE, HAVING IT IN PLACE AND HAVING PEOPLE WHO ARE WILLING TO TESTIFY AGAINST OTHER PEOPLE.>>Heather: DONALD TRUMP HAS CLAIMED ALWAYS THIS PROBE IS A WITCH HUNT TO USE HIS PHRASE. THERE IS NO COLLUSION WITH RUSSIAN OFFICIALS AND NO LINK TO HIS CAMPAIGN. WHAT DOES THIS GUILTY PLEA, WHAT DOES THE PAPADOPOULOS REVELATION, WHAT DOES ALL OF THAT DO TO THOSE REPEATED CLAIMS?>>Interview: I THINK THAT DONALD TRUMP ALWAYS HAD A SLIDING SCALE INTERPRETATION OF WHAT COLLUSION IS. HE SAID AT THE OUTSET THERE IS NO COLLUSION. THERE IS NO EVIDENCE PRESENT TO SUGGEST ANYONE COLLUDED. IT TURNS OUT HIS SON HAD BITTEN ON AN E-MAIL AND SOMEBODY OFFERED DIRT ON HILLARY CLINTON. HE SAT DOWN WITH A LAWYER. HE IS JUST DOING RESEARCH. DONALD TRUMP HAS MADE THE SAME CASE ALWAYS. WE EXPECT HIM TO CONTINUE TO MAKE THE SAME CASE NO MATTER WHAT DEVELOPS. I DON’T KNOW THAT DONALD TRUMP’S POSITION, HIS POLITICAL STANCE ON WHAT HIS VIEW OF THE INVESTIGATION IS, I DON’T THINK THAT CHANGED TODAY. BUT I THINK HE IS PROBABLY WELL AWARE TODAY THAT ANY IDEA THAT ROBERT MUELLER WAS GOING TO SORT OF SIT ON HIS HANDS AND NOT NECESSARILY DIG TOO DEEP, IF DONALD TRUMP WAS HOPING THAT WOULD HAPPEN, IT WENT OUT THE WINDOW.>>Heather: WE HEARD THE SAME FROM THE WHITE HOUSE, FROM FROM SANDERS, PAPADOPOULOS, MINOR CAMPAIGN VOLUNTEER AND HEARD HER DESCRIBE OR THE WHITE HOUSE DESCRIBE MANAFORT AS A LIMITED ROLE FOR A LIMITED PERIOD OF TIME. AND THEY WERE MAKING THE MESSAGING VERY CLEAR TODAY IN DONALD TRUMP’S DEFENCE. I WONDER THE FACT THAT THEY MOVED SO QUICKLY TO GET RID OF MANAFORT, DISTANCING THEMSELVES FROM HIM EARLY ON AS SOON AS THE EUROPEAN TIES BECAME PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE, DOES THAT GIVE THEM A LITTLE BIT OF — DOES THAT HELP DONALD TRUMP DISTANCE HIMSELF FROM MANAFORT TODAY? IS THIS GOOD NEWS IN ALL OF THAT FOR HIM?>>Interview: YEAH, I THINK IT WILL BE DIFFICULT FOR THE WHITE HOUSE AND DONALD TRUMP HIMSELF TO MESSAGE AWAY POTENTIAL PROBLEMS IF IN FACT MUELLER HAS INFORMATION AND EVIDENCE LINKING THEM TO POTENTIAL TIES WITH THE KREMLIN DURING THE CAMPAIGN. I THINK — THEY WANT TO HAVE THEIR BASE AND GIVE THEIR BASE AND GIVE THEIR ALLIES TALKING POINTS TO SAY TO THE PRESS. AND ON SOCIAL MEDIA. BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY, IT DEPENDS ON THE EVIDENCE MUELLER HAS. WE DON’T KNOW WHAT IF ANY EVIDENCE MUELLER HAS DIRECTLY CONNECTING DONALD TRUMP OR THE HIGHEST PEOPLE IN HIS CAMPAIGN. ASIDE FROM MANAFORT. TO THESE POTENTIAL TIES WITH RUSSIAN OPERATIVES DURING THE CAMPAIGN. MUELLER WILL REVEAL THAT AS WE SEE FROM TODAY, HE WILL REVEAL THAT ON HIS OWN TIME LINE WHEN IT IS — WHEN HE THINKS IT IS RIGHT TO DO SO.>>Heather: GIVEN THAT, I CAN PROBABLY ANTICIPATE THE ANSWER TO THE QUESTION, IS DONALD TRUMP ANY CLOSER TO IMPEACHMENT TONIGHT?>>Interview: THAT IS A TOUGH QUESTION. IMPEACHMENT, IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ANY OF THIS. IT IS A POLITICAL PROCESS. YOU KNOW, THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES IS SOLIDLY CONTROLLED BY REPUBLICANS. THEY WILL NOT MOVE ON IMPEACHMENT OF DONALD TRUMP PRIOR TO THE PRIMARIES NEXT YEAR FOR THE MID-TERM ELECTIONS. AFTER THAT, WHO KNOWS. IT DEPENDS ON WHAT IS REVEALED. 78% OF REPUBLICANS IN THE MOST RECENT WEEKLY GALLUP POLL APPROVE OF THE JOB THAT DONALD TRUMP IS DOING. IT SLIPPED A LITTLE BIT. PARTICULARLY SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THE TERM. REPUBLICANS THINK HE IS DOING A GOD JOB. THEY COME OUT TO VOTE. THE REPUBLICAN MEMBERS WILL MOTTE MOVE QUICKLY TO IMPEACH HIM.>>Heather: WHERE WILL IT GO?>>WE DON’T KNOW. THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING OF WHAT COULD BE A VERY LONG PROCESS. THE WHITE HOUSE IS SIGNALLING TODAY THAT THIS IS NEAR THE END. I DON’T THINK THAT IS NECESSARILY THE CASE. THIS COULD GO WELL INTO 2018. AND WE CAN SEE SOME OF THE INDICTMENTS COME DOWN ON A ROLLING BASIS. I THINK THERE IS A LOT MORE THAT WE DON’T KNOW THAT WHAT WE KNOW AT THIS POINT.>>Heather: I APPRECIATE YOUR INSIGHTS VERY MUCH. THANK YOU.>>>STRAIGHT AHEAD, THERE IS A BATTLE UNDERWAY FOR CONTROL OF THE WORLD’S FASTEST GROWING SPORT. WE WILL DIVE INTO THE DEBATE NEXT. The television show that
challenges all comers is still doing just that
30 years on. Front Page Challenge
is entering its 30th year broadcasting
in Canada. And last night at a glittering
reception in Ottawa, they remembered
and they celebrated those
memorable years. Dan Bjarnason
has prepared this report. Few Canadian institutions
have lasted as long as Front Page
Challenge. And to become more popular,
year after year, is something to
be envied. Bjarnason: That’s the opinion
of viewer at least. Expressed over a decade ago
and now after 30 years on the air, the show is more of
a institution than ever. Announcer: Tonight on
Front Page Challenge… Bjarnason: Hammered out in 1957,
in a producer’s living room, as a summer fill-in,
and in a business where programs fight
for breath and often die
after a few weeks, Front Page Challenge
is one of the most successful TV shows
in history. The program
developed the look of a miniature history of
the 20th century. There was
the silly. Let’s talk
about diamonds. [Zsa Zsa]
Let’s not talk about diamonds. Let me talk to you about your
ex-husband, George Sanders. Are you still
friends with him? Let’s talk
about diamonds. [laughing] Bjarnason: There was
the profound. My whole Christian background
has a great deal to do with my coming to this conclusion that
love and non-violence should be the regulating ideals in any
struggle for human dignity. Bjarnason: Perhaps the show’s
chief drawing card was, until
his death, an endearing scamp,
Gordon Sinclair. Did the personal event happening
to you, cause you to feel happy or joy or euph– eupher-ick-ick? Oops. No euph. [laughter] There wasn’t an ounce of
euphericky in it. [laughter] Bjarnason: On occasion the panel
goofed on the obvious. Well, let’s see
what’s left. The mumbly peg, I guess that
they don’t do that anymore. And this is a sport
where you run around? Is it boxing
by any chance? [laughs]
No, No. Swimming, swimming,
swimming. [laughter] Bjarnason: Not once
in four appearances did they
manage to guess… Gordie
Howe. Hooray! [applause; cheering] Bjarnason: One of the original
moderators 30-years ago, Alec Barris today
is the program’s writer. He recalls some early
disasters such as Winston Churchill’s
son, Randolph. Who was sort of nine sheets
in the wind by the time he got to
the studio. Went to the wrong
studio first. And when he finally got
to the right studio, he insisted that
somebody go out and get him
a bottle of whiskey, which he killed before the show
and he didn’t even need it. Bjarnason:
Then there was the defecting
Russian diplomat, Igor
Gouzenko. And then when he came
in he insisted that A) he had to have
his voice muffled – so it wouldn’t
be recognizable. B) he had to wear
the hood over his face – so he wouldn’t be
recognized. But the funny part came when he
saw that Fred Davis was in the make-up room
getting make-up on, he insisted he had to
have make-up on too even though he was
going to wear the hood. Bjarnason: It’s hard
to imagine now but the critics
panned the show, opening night,
30 years ago. A corpse they called it,
a long 30 minutes. The critics
were wrong. Go! Bjarnason: Last night
the taping of a one hour birthday spectacular. [applause] Critics has also predicted that
Front Page Challenge wouldn’t last after
Gordon Sinclair. The critics were
wrong again. Dan Bjarnason,
CBC News, Ottawa.>>You want a vacation?>>Never been to Italy.>>You want to go?>>Don’t know. Never really think about. What we even do? Maybe five day in Venice, coffee in St. Mark’s Square, over night in Siena and drive down Amalfi Coast in convertible.>>Hmm. I feel like you think about this.>>ARE YOU CANOEING? ARE YOU SURFING?>>I THINK YOU HAVE TO DO BOTH. OTHERWISE YOU WILL NOT GET THE MOST OUT OF THE BOARD.>>IT DEPENDS ON THE BOARD.>>NEITHER. I AM TRYING TO STAY UP IN THE WATER AND KEEP UP WITH THOSE GUYS.>>Heather: IF YOU HAVE BEEN IN A LAKE OR BY THE OCEAN IN THE LEST YEARS AGO, CHANCES ARE YOU HAVE SEEN SOMEONE DOING THIS. STAND UP PADDLE BOARDING. IT HAS BECOME A HUGELY POPULAR SPORT AMONG RECREATIONAL USERS AND COMPETITIVE ATHLETES. IT IS UNDER CONSIDERATION AS AN OLYMPIC EVENT. THESE ARE TURBULENT WATERS. AND THEY ARE PUTTING THE VERY FUTURE OF THE SPORT AT RISK.>>IT IS AN AMAZING SPORT. IT IS FOR EVERYONE. IT KEEPS ME IN SHAPE. THIS IS IMPORTANT.>>I LOVE IT. IT IS AGAIN BACK TO THE SURFING. THE FEELING OF BEING ABLE TO FLOAT ON WATER.>>IT LOOKS LIKE CANADA WILL HAVE A GOLD MOMENT. A SPECIAL MOMENT, I AM SURE FOR YOU.>>FANTASTIC.>>IN 2010, A FRIEND REALLY COERCED ME TO STAND UP ON A PADDLE BOARD. I WASN’T REALLY INTERESTED IN IT AT FIRST, BECAUSE I THOUGHT IT WAS TIME TO GROW UP AND, YOU KNOW, NOT ACQUIRE NEW PADDLING TOYS. I ENTERED MY FIRST RACE IN JANUARY 2011 IN NORTH CAROLINA AND I WON. SINCE THEN, I HAVE BEEN, YOU KNOW, I HAVE BEEN PADDLING PRETTY MUCH EVERY DAY. THE LAST YEAR IT HAS BEEN EVERY DAY YEAR-ROUND BASICALLY. YOU KNOW, BEING SOMEONE WHO COMINGS FROM A CANOEING BACKGROUND AND IS REALLY INVOLVED IN STAND UP PADDLING, I RACE AND ENJOY DOING IT. I HAVE A BUSINESS BASED ON IT. I CARE ABOUT BOTH. MY FEELINGS REALLY ARE THAT, I THINK THAT THE INTERNATIONAL CANOE FEDERATION SHOULD PROBABLY STICK TO MANAGING CANOES AND KAYAKS. AND AT THE SAME TIME, INTERNATIONAL SURFING ASSOCIATION TOOK ON PADDLE BOARDING WHEN NO ONE ELSE WAS INTERESTED IN IT. I THINK THEY CAN LAY CLAIM TO IT IN THAT REGARD. I THINK THEY HAVE MADE AN EFFORT TO ADVANCE THE SPORT FOR QUITE A WHILE. THE ICF DOESN’T.>>ARE YOU CANOEING? ARE YOU SURFING?>>Interview: I THINK YOU HAVE TO BE DOING BOTH, OTHERWISE YOU WILL NOT GET THE MOST OUT OF THE BOARD. IT IS TECHNICAL AND FEEL.>>IF IT IS A FLAT WATER PADDLE YOU ARE PADDLING, YOU HAVE THE PADDLE TO YOUR HANDS, YOU ARE STANDING ON A BOARD WHICH IS SIMILAR TO A SURF BOARD. IF THE CONDITIONS CHANGE AND YOU ARE DOWNWINDING OR YOU ARE SURFING LARGER SWELLS, YOU ARE SURFING.>>NEITHER, I AM TRYING TO STAY UP ON THE WATER. I AM TRYING TO KEEP WITH THOSE GUYS. THEY PUSH ME. YEAH. I AM NOT REALLY CANOEING AND NOT REALLY SURFING.>>Interview: THIS IS A SURF BOARD WITH A PADDLE. IT IS NOT A CANOE ADAPTED TO SURFING. IT IS NOT STANDING UP IN A CANOE. IT IS PADDLING WITH A SURF BOARD.>>I CAME FROM A SURFING BACKGROUND. I AM ALWAYS TRYING TO DO A LITTLE BIT OF SURFING. EVEN THE TINY BUMPS, EVEN ON FLAT WATER.>>YOU ARE MAKING A PADDLE STROKE, YOU MUST BE CANOEING.>>THE BOARD IS DESIGNED TO CATCH WAVES IN THE SHAPE OF IT. THE FACT THAT WE HAVE IT LIKE A SURF BOARD. THE WAY THAT WE RIDE WHEN WE ARE MOVING AROUND, WE GET INTO THE SURF STANCE, HOW CAN THAT NOT BE SURFING.>>WELL, IN ONE RESPECT, IT DOESN’T MATTER WHO GOVERNS IT, I WILL GO OUT THERE AND ENJOY THE SPORT AS WILL EVERYBODY ELSE. YOU DON’T NEED RULES, YOU DON’T NEED PEOPLE TELLING YOU WHAT TO DO AND YOU DON’T NEED ANY OF THAT KIND OF THING TO TAKE IT OFF THE CART AND DROP IT IN THE WATER AND GO FOR A PADDLE. I WOULD SUSPECT THAT, YOU KNOW, PEOPLE WILL ENJOY THE SPORT REGARDLESS OF WHO WINS. THEY HAVE AN OBLIGATION AND A RESPONSIBILITY TO PROMOTE THE SPORT. AND HELP IT GROW TO REALLY SHARE IT WITH AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE. IT IS A WONDERFUL ACTIVITY. AND IT WOULD BE GREAT FOR EVERYBODY IF MORE PEOPLE WERE DOING IT.>>Heather: ALL THAT GLITTERS IS NOT GOLD. THAT STO ♪ [funk] All right — Move it! Woo! Yeah! And here we go! It’s fun. Yeah! Take it back. Yeah! ♪ You’ve got to get
my boogie down ♪ And again! Woo! Reporter: At 39 years old,
Judy Sheppard Missett is an excellent advertisement
for Jazzercise. 5’8, 115 pounds,
she has two kids. One fifteen years old,
the other, 10 months old. She works 18 hour days,
and she loves it. And her enthusiasm
is infectious. Judy: We have about 350,000
students around the world, in Canada of course, and the
States, and 15 other countries. Jazzercise is really
dance-technique based, jazz dance-technique based. It’s very simple
and easy to follow. If you can play follow the
leader, you can Jazzercise. We also create in class,
a very theatrical atmosphere. Lot’s of whipping,
and hollering, and singing along
with the music. It’s a very good
emotional release. Be the actor,
be the actress, be the dancer that you’ve
always wanted to be, and just — just let your
mind go on vacation. Reporter: Judy Missett started
Jazzercise long before the current fitness boom. Judy: It all started
with me back in 1969 in a dance studio in Chicago. And I saw a lot of people
coming through my class that — jazz dance class,
that were staying. And I attributed that
to the fact that dance is a very disciplined,
very restricted art form. And many were there just to
get fit, and to have fun, and feel the joy of movement. I turned people away
from the mirrors, I was indeed their mirror, I gave them lots
of positive encouragement, and made the movements very
simple and easy to follow, yet still with the feeling
of dance, and it worked! Reporter: Until 1977, Jazzercise
was a one woman operation. Then Judy Missett trained
some instructors, and the growth
started happening. Jazzercise came to Canada
in 1980 with Lynn Morgan, and now, 11,000 students
in the Vancouver area are dancing to
the Jazzercise beat. Woo! It’s for every type of person. Young, old, of fit condition,
of non-fit condition, dancers, and non-dancers. People who want to be active,
who like to dance, whose husbands may not
take them dancing, and they have a good time
while they’re in class, as well as getting fit. The program is
physiologically sound, so we don’t ask people
to do something stupid. We ask people to do things
that are good for their body. [clapping and cheering] [clapping and cheering] ♪ [funk]>>Announcer: CBC Music presents, the Canadian Music Class Challenge.
