Aired p ET Aired January 14, - They continue that message of wanting to work with Russia, but you really have to kind of probe behind the scenes. And we have the issue of the sanctions he appears to be talking about.
Are the sanctions that the Obama administration imposed after the hacking allegations and information came out, there were also other sanctions that have been in effect for quite a while about Ukraine and Crimea.
So we would also want to get a very precise definition of what sanctions he would want to get rid of. The Senate Intelligence Committee is promising to look into Russian cyber activity and possible links between Russia and individuals associated with U.
What are the expectations and how would that potential be received there in Moscow? Well, they dismiss it here in Moscow out of hand.
What they want to do now is move toward this new relationship which will start in just a week and -- or even less -- and try to smooth the way as much as possible. They want to work with him. Jill Dougherty in Moscow, thank you so much. Senator Chris Coons said this call was, quote, "very suspicious.
This kind of contact with major foreign government is to be expected. You would expect Mike Flynn to make this kind of phone call. He had to have been telling him something like that behind closed doors. Is that something that would happen during a transition period, laying that kind of groundwork while the current administration is sending a different signal?
And Mike Flynn is setting the tone for a different relationship with Moscow. Right now the U. So the relationship does need to be restored. And then Trump making that argument in the "Wall Street Journal" that good things could happen.
So is that also setting the stage for what his hope would be, what kind of operations coming out of the U. State Department as it pertains to Russia? Could that be militarily, could that be with some sort of cyber-response? They keep telling me, stay tuned, watch what we do.
Kim Dozier, thank you so much in Washington. Pamela Brown has more. FBI director James Comey is facing renewed scrutiny on both sides of the aisle. House Democrats left a confidential briefing with Comey on Russia on hacking fuming. All I can tell you is the FBI director has no credibility.
Democrats mad about his decision not to sign on to an October letter from the intelligence community saying Russia was behind the election hacks, and refusal to speak publicly about ongoing investigations into people formerly connected to the Trump campaign and Russia.
Other Democrats who recently had a briefing with Comey, a registered Republican appointed by President Obama, are coming to his defense. Jim Comey is an honorable person who I think made a bad decision. Comey is at the center of another political firestorm for briefing the president-elect on unsubstantiated allegations against him last week.
CNN has learned Comey had a one on one conversation with Trump after the intel meeting to brief him on the allegations. FBI director James Comey, are you going to ask for his resignation? I think that I would rather not comment on that yet.
As of now, Director Comey is only three-and-a-half years into the year FBI director tenure, and people familiar with the matter say he has no regrets about decisions he has made surrounding the recent investigations and has no plans to step down.
The week ahead will once again be packed with many more confirmation hearings. As of now eight cabinet nominees will face questioning by senators. Will you commit to giving the commander in chief, the president, unpleasant news that may be inconsistent with his policy preferences based on the best intelligence that the CIA can develop?
I have shared with him that my role is central to him performing his function and important and critical only when I perform my function in that way. Joining me right now on the phone is retired General Wesley Clark, a former NATO supreme allied commander and was also the commander in chief of the U.
