welcome to "early start." i'm alex marquardt in for dave briggs. >> i'm christine romans. radio silence after lawmakers getting briefed by the justice intel officials about the confidential source in the russia investigation. it is not clear if the standoff with the house republicans and department of justice is diffused or about to erupt. two briefings and hours of talks with no clarity from the house chairman devin nunes. he is threatening to hold deputy attorney general rod rosenstein in contempt for not turning over documents which the source said he did not get. >> the allies claimed the fbi used a confidential source to spy on the trump campaign. the source was not a plant. the briefings on thursday included an appearance by a trump staffer which was
1:02 am
questionable. more now from justice reporter laura jarrett. >> reporter: a surprise appearance from the white house lawyer and now many more questions about what comes next as the president's lawyer rudy giuliani essentially says the team needs to know more about this fbi confidential source before agreeing to let the president sit down with the special counsel office. the anticipation surrounding the briefings and what they entail was building all week with the guest list changing minute by minute. then emmet flood showed up. the latest addition to the white house team raising questions about the man participating in the presidency would be involved with the congressional oversight. the white house saying nothing to see here. he and chief of staff john kelly were only there for the start of the meeting and did not actually participate in the briefing. on the substance of what they heard, democrats say they have not heard anything to support the theory about the spy or mole

embedded in the trump campaign. >> nothing we heard today changed our view. there is no evidence to support any allegation that the fbi or any intelligence agency placed a spy in the trump campaign or otherwise failed to follow appropriate procedures. >> reporter: the republicans are not saying very much either. they have not suggested they need anything further at this point. in fact, the senate majority leader mitch mcconnell saying he did not hear anything that was particularly surprising. alex, christine. >> laura in washington. thank you. cnn learned that president trump's lawyers and robert mueller's team discussed the possibility of the january 27, 2018 interview before talks talked. raising the issue of the investigation may have concluded by now. the january 27th date would have been days after trump told reporters he was eager to sit
1:04 am
down with mueller. the president's lawyers have come to believe an interview is unlikely, but the two sides continue to trade proposals. cnn learned that robert mueller's team is looking into the finances of the long-time trump adviser roger stone and including his tax returns. it is not clear if it is connected to the russian meddling or something unrelated. stone insists he played no role in the collusion despite the tweet predicting trouble for john podesta. the future relations of the u.s. and north korea very much uncertain at this hour now that president trump has pulled out of the singapore summit. >> many things can happen and a great opportunity lies ahead potentially. i believe that this is a tremendous setback for north korea and indeed a setback for
1:05 am
the world. >> issues with the two sides have been building. a senior official tells cnn north koreans were a no show in singapore for preparations for the now canceled summit. that raised alarms with the white house. >> strong language. president trump sending a letter to kim jong-un saying you talk about your nuclear capabilities, but ours are so massive and powerful that i pray to god they never have to be used. later, if you changed your mind having to do with the summit, don't hesitate to call or write. >> all of this moments after the north koreans announced they destroyed the northern nuclear test side. -- site. will ripley reported to some that president trump pulled out of the summit. >> reporter: we were sitting

>> reporter: relatively measured statement coming from the foreign ministry of north korea given the rhetoric we heard recently, alex. we reiterate to the u.s. we are willing to sit face-to-face at anytime and any way. president trump's statement on the north korea and u.s. summit is not in line with the wishes of those who hope for the peace and stability of the korean peninsula and the world. that is what people who are upset about the fact the summit will not happen and are looking for hope. at some point, there could be another date set. there was wiggle room in the president trump statement. he said he is willing to meet at some point. there could be a summit down the road. that is what people in this part of the world in china and japan and south korea, that is what people are hoping. this is a massive disappointment. no one more than president moon jae-in of south korea. he put in a ton of work as middle man between the two sides as recently as a couple of days ago as he went to washington,
