Transcript for Trump administration confronts travel ban fallout
Cecilia, thanks very much. Let's bring in Jon Karl for more on all this and start with general Mike Flynn right now, the national security adviser. Hard to be him this morning wake up to stories in all the major papers talking about turmoil inside the national security council and "Wall Street journal" saying reince Priebus is leading a review to see if he should stay and almost seems as if the white house is trying to send him a signal, go on your own. Reporter: No question about it. You talk to senior officials and you ask them directly, does the president have confidence in general Flynn? They can't give you an answer to that. They also can't answer the next question, will he remain as the national security adviser? Remember, one of the big problems here is he misled the vice president and the vice president went out on national TV and said that he -- Flynn had had no contact with the Russian ambassador about those sanctions, but, George, that was the second time that he had misled the vice president. During the transition the vice president also went on television and said that Flynn's son had no role in the transition. It later turned out he did have a role. And then his son was, of course, fired. Had two conversations with the vice president on Friday. Meantime, white house chief of staff reince Priebus meets with him at mar-a-lago and tweets out maybe it's time for reince Priebus to go as well so he's doing damage control. Reporter: Yeah, no question. One senior official said to me the first person in line to go is Flynn, prooebs is in a stronger position. This was Chris ruddy, longtime trump friend, a member of mar-a-lago, but ruddy after saying that actually put out two tweets late last night, one saying that he had talked to reince Priebus and Priebus had shared his plans and looked promising and another saying he heard from Jared Kushner, of course, the president's son-in-law saying that they have full confidence in Priebus so a little bit of damage control. Ruddy heard from three cabinet members who he said expressed concerns about prooebprooe Priebus.
