been erased from the internet. ♪ good morning to our viewers here in the united states and around the world. it is thursday, september 23rd. and dive teams will be back in the water today near the florida home of brian laundrie. the fiancee of 22-year-old gabby petito has not been seen now for nearly two weeks since returning home from their road trip alone. a large boat arrived midday wednesday in a swampy 25,000 acre reserve where laundrie told his parents he was headed last week. after four days of searching, there is still no sign of him >> new clues what may have been the final hours of petito's life. a couple who said they witnessed
3:01 am
an incident involving petito and laundrie in a restaurant. it may have been one of the last sightings of gabby before her death. the couple reports seeing a commotion that had petito visibly upset >> amara walker is on the story for us in venice, florida, with the latest on the search for brian laundrie. amara, what are you hearing? >> reporter: good morning to you both. yeah, yesterday a specialized team of divers was on scene all day. but we're told their search turned up nothing. so law enforcement will be resuming that search here at the carlton reserve for brian laundrie. and they say they are trying to cover every acre. still no signs of brian laundrie this morning, as investigators expand the urgent search for gabby petito's fiancee >> we have deployed numerous resources. we are trying to cover every acre in this reserve. >> reporter: authorities using canines to help search on the
3:02 am
ground and flying drones over the 25,000 acres of swamplands of this florida nature reserve. specialized under water dive teams arriving to assist while high-water vehicles navigate through waist-deep water. >> physical searches like that and that type of remote were area present all kinds of problems. it's a marshy area. it's thick with foliage. it's very hard to get into certain spots. >> reporter: laundrie going missing after returning to the family home the couple shared with his parents without petito september 1st. the fbi is asking the public to help find laundrie. >> it is usually a sign that you have a very challenging manhunt on your hands. >> reporter: they are also seeking assistance to piece together the timeline of petito's final days. august 12th, petito sharing this photo on instagram. that's the same day a witness dialed 911 to report a domestic dispute between her and laundrie, prompting police to
3:03 am
pull them over. >> we have been fighting all morning. >> reporter: one week later -- >> i love the van. >> reporter: the couple posting this video on their youtube page, documenting their cross country journey. jessica schultz ten telling the "san francisco chronicle" she saw laundrie a week later in his van, close to where they found petito's remains. >> i was checking out to see if it was a couple or solo dude. it was a solo dude as far as i could see. >> reporter: youtube bloggers also say she spotted the vehicle. she saw him in jacks son, wyoming that day, describing a commotion where petito was in tears and laundrie was visibly angry. >> she was hysterically crying. and she walked out and she was crying and standing on the sidewalk. and i was watching the whole thing unfold. he walked in four more times to talk to the manager and tell the
3:04 am
hostess. >> reporter: the same day and affidavit that petito's mother received an odd text from her daughter's phone that referred to her grandfather my stan, which she never did. witness tips can help move a probe further. >> right now the focus has to be on trying to locate him, dead or alive. >> reporter: so the fbi of course is focused right now on finding brian laundrie. but they're also focused on this timeline from august 27th to the 30th. they want to know what happened between gabby petito and brian laundrie. they are asking anyone who may have had contact with them or even just saw their seek in the grand teton national park to give them a call. brianna. >> amara walker, thank you for that report. i want to bring in andrew mccabe, former deputy fbi director and author of the "the threat how the threat protects
3:05 am
america in the age of terror and trump." this new bit of reporting from randi kaye who has been out in wyoming, this restaurant, where a couple saw, you know, a heated exchange between brian laundrie. gabby petito physically upset. may have been the last time anyone saw her alive. how does that fit into the puzzle for investigators? >> john, these reports are incredibly helpful to investigators primarily because they put the victim and the potential subject in a definitive place at a specific time. so that helps them build this timeline to kind of bridge back to that moment of when gabby was killed. as for the kind of personal remembrances of people who may have seen their interaction, that becomes less helpful. we all know that eyewitness testimony is typically -- can be very inaccurate. people's remembrances of things change over time. being able to pin them down a lot a particular day in time is
3:06 am
very helpful. >> i want to talk about the search for brian laundrie. they keep going back to the nature preserve. now they have divers searching under water. do they have to have some sign of shred of evidence to keep on doing this, or is this just hoping for something? >> you know, law enforcement on the scene has been very definitive saying they will search every acre of that property. 25,000 acres. that is approximately 40 square miles of turf they've got to cover. they are at 80 miles of hiking trails within that park. it's a big place. at some point if they find no sign of ryan whatsoever, they will have to redirect the resources to other investigative efforts. >> how hard would it be if he were to be on the run right now? how long could someone like that do it, do you think? >> it's incredibly hard to be on the run. i can tell you in my 21 years in law enforcement and the fbi, i have seen very few people do it
3:07 am
successfully for a long time. you are thinking about whitey bulger, eric robert rudolph, the olympic park bomber, who lived in the woods five years before we found him. you have to have money, you have to have support from your family, from the community, and you have to have a deep level of kind of cunning and street smarts to be able to kind of bridge from one place to the next. there is no indication that brian laundrie has any of those things working to his advantage at this point. and if he's, in fact, in that reserve, that is an incredibly harsh environment in which to try to sustain yourself. . >> you brought up the family there. we have no indication that the fbi is investigating the parents or the family in connection with any of this. but you brought up eric rudolph, whitey bulger, sometimes the family can help you. at this point if anyone were trying to help, and it would be very hard because the fbi is there -- >> that's absolutely right. it is those efforts to support a fugitive that lead the fbi right to the fugitive's doorstep. they will be looking closely at
3:08 am
any sort of communications, access to financial instruments, all sorts of things that might connect someone in the community vie va family member or otherwise who might be supporting or communicating with brian. that could actually direct law enforcement to his location. >> you know, i asked you -- you talked about the preserve and it would be hard to hide there. again, if he is on the run, and we don't know that he is, and we don't know that he is a suspect, per se, if he's not there, how far away could he be reasonably at this point? if you were in the fbi, what would you be thinking? . >> well, certainly he has time on his side. he had several days's lead on the law enforcement effort to find him. and that would definitely be to his advantage. however, in this case mr. laundrie is widely known by the public, right? he is on television. his picture is on television. his social media posts for the weeks leading up to this. so he would be very recognizable were he to leave the reserve and try to make a run for it, as we
3:09 am
say, on the economy just through local society around where he lived. >> you hear a lot of people say he had a head start before the fbi started looking. is that actually something you think is real? >> i think he did. there's no question the family didn't even tell law enforcement he was gone until the 17th. they said he left the previous tuesday, the 14th. so if you think of it, they don't start looking for him until that friday or saturday. and he's been gone since tuesday. that's a pretty good head start under normal circumstances. however, as i said, with as recognizable he is, to go out into the world and try to do it on your own, very tough. to live in that reserve, probably even tougher. >> thank you for the inside look at what might be happening. >> thanks, john. fighting for votes within their own caucus. can the president hold his party together? the fda authorizes the first booster shots for some republicans. we will answer your questions.

3:16 am
from the biden administration. and then on top of all of this, biden's approval rating is sinking. his agenda is facing serious jeopardy, not only because of republican opposition but also because of these hardliners in his own party. let's talk about this now with cnn political commentator with jess macintosh. good morning to you. just give us the context here of how big a week this is for president biden. >> good morning, brianna. actually, i don't think it's hyperbolic to say this could be the biggest week of biden's presidency. and that's surprising. but the brinksmanship is surprising considering how widely popular this agenda is. i know there's a tendency to say that he's stuck between progressives and centrists. but given the reality in this country, the objective reality that we need to upgrade our infrastructure so that we can mitigate the effects of climate
3:17 am
change, we need to create the kind of economy that allows families to care for each other without going bankrupt. these are just the realities in this country. and given that, i would say that he is stuck between progressives and obstructionists. largely, the entire republican party and several members of his own. we have seen republicans many times now start negotiations, start down the path towards a deal and then turn against it even though they have participated in the process. with he saw it right away with the american rescue plan. we have just seen it again with police reform now that republican tim scott rejected the final offer and that is dead. we are seeing them with votes against the bipartisan infrastructure framework. bipartisan ship is lovely. but if it doesn't help with caring for an aging parent or child without losing everything, it doesn't matter. it's the process. . >> he doesn't need bipartisan ship to get this $3 trillion
3:18 am
bill passed. he is really stuck between the two factions of his own party. he has the majority in the house. he has enough votes in the senate. it seems he would be more likely to attract all democrats than he would be to win over any republicans. i do want to ask you. we are seeing lines drawn by both of these factions. we had congresswoman jayapal on yesterday ahead of the caucus. she said essentially it's a red line. how serious is this ultimatum that progressives are putting out there in the house that either pass it all, both the bipartisan bill and this big bill only by democrats, or get nothing. how real is that? >> i think anything that results in doing nothing for american people facing multiple crises. we have gone through the worst
3:19 am
year and a half of most people's lives in this country. that requires a massive response. i honestly can't speak to what the obstructionists in our own party are thinking. i know joe manchin and kyrsten sinema have smart people around them. someone had to tell them it will be a bad slogan for the election. the ones willing to embrace widely politically popular solutions. that's the current reality right now. >> are they really going to settle for nothing? are progressives really going to settle for nothing? >> i mean, i know that the progressives that i talked to, they are motivated by helping people fix their lives. there are a lot of things that are broken in this country right now. so i am sure that the ultimate goal of what progressives are doing is to get as much as possible to the people who need it the most. i would be surprised if they
3:20 am
were happy with nothing given that reality. but i think it's really important that they take a stand, that they say, this is not negotiable. fixing our infrastructure to handle climate change is not negotiable when you still have people without power, you still have people fleeing smoke and fire and floods. that's the reality in america right now. so the idea that we could negotiate a solution to help people handle that away, i think that can't be the first thing that they come to the table with. >> yeah. look, it's a pivotal week ahead, as you say. jess mcintosh, thanks so much. >> thanks, brianna. >> more proof that former president trump and his allies attempted a coup. plus, an emergency room physician who spends her free time spreading dangerous disinformation about the pandemic. and that's not the only big lie she's connected to. cnn confronts her.

it was a how-to guide to subvert an american election. a six-step plan for mike pence to overturn the 2020 election results. the memo came to light and bob woodward and bob kos co ta's new book "peril." this is the next slide into thor terrorism says our next guest. in a twitter thread that went viral, brian kloss wrote, one simple question what could slow down the gop march towards thor
3:26 am
terrorism. joining me is brian klaas. thanks so much for being with us. we talked about it on this show before. there is an old, chilling saying which goes what do you call a failed coup? and the answer is practice. why do you think that's a relevant quote here? >> well, i think we have information that shows there was an organized attempt to effectively install a president in power despite the fact that he lost an election. that is thor terrorism. now, what i'm worried about is how this could end or reverse itself. every trend i'm seeing is it is accelerating with a ratcheting effect. the reason for that is very simple. if you put yourself in the shoes of a moderate republican, someone who in their heart of hearts believes in democracy, they are looking to their party and seeing the rising stars are people who are embracing donald trump's lies about the election, embracing attempts to install
3:27 am
him into power despite his election loss, praising january 6th. people who criticized donald trump are watching their careers die. people who stand up for democracy are becoming pariahs in the gop. extremism has been a litmus test for the party and that is moving the base towards, i fear, an inevitable slide towards authoritarianism. >> you mention there are no counter availing forces here. the opposite. people who are moderate -- i'm not talking about politically moderate or on the partisan scale, but sort of intellectually, culturally moderate or want to moderate extremism. it is not a reward structure. it's the opposite of that. >> exactly right. and i think there is a phenomenon going on right now with the stardom that comes with authoritarianism extremism. it had been amplified by the breakdown of party control and
3:28 am
social media. somebody like marjorie taylor greene who said unbelievably abhorrent things, amplifies lies is a breakout star in the party rather than the pariah that she should be. what signal does that send to somebody else? if you follow in her footsteps, you too will become a breakout star in the party. i can't answer the question, as someone who studied authoritarianism, i see now signs of this reversing itself, i see no evidence of moderates saying we disagree on health care and taxes but we agree on this. their careers are dying. they are pariahs. the tea leaves are difficult for republicans to read. that is why it has become the rational strategy for rising republican politicians to embrace. >> we put up on the screen this sort of several step plan or reason why you think there is
3:29 am
nothing to check tauthor authoritarianism. even more important than the ones at the beginning. no counter availing forces. the rise of social media. i'm always hesitant to put all the blame on social media. the medium, as it were. i think if there weren't a receptive audience, it wouldn't be effective. it is easy to blame facebook for marjorie taylor greene. why not talk about the masses of people who want to be susceptible to her? >> you're absolutely right. it's not just social media. it is institutional factors like how you win an election in america. because of gerrymandering or because of primaries that amplify the voices of extremists, the people who vote like clockwork in primaries, the reward structure is to become more extreme. the only way to lose a lot of these competitive districts is
3:30 am
to compromise with democrats, embrace democracy. so you have a perfect storm effectively. you have the institutional incentives, in other words the way you win an election, combined with social media stardom means that that is the right strategy if you want to get re-elected. so until the party is either dealt a crushing defeat or until democrats reform the system to insulate the institutions from authoritarian attacks, i think united states democracy is in grave, grave danger for the short to medium term. >> you just touched on where i want to go next. my inclination is to ask you, well, what fixes this. your entire point is you don't see what fixes it. if you're a rational democrat now, you talk about the rational choice for republicans is to gravitate towards extremism if they want political success. what's the rational choice for a democrat? >> the rational choice for a democrat is to wield the power they have to protect democracy. i have studied authoritarian
3:31 am
regimes around the world, breakdown of democracy from sub saharan africa to asia. rebuilding it is nearly impossible. it takes decades. protecting it while you have political power is much, much easier, much more effective. so the point is voters have given democrats a mandate. they have given them control of the white house, the house, and the senate. democrats need to stop messing around. they need to recognize this is a grave authoritarian threat and wield the political power voters gave them to shore up the institutions about an a authoritarian attack we know is happening. what's going to happen in 2022 or 2024? we know what's going to happen. now is the time to act. >> they wrote it down. it's on paper. brian klaas, i appreciate you being with us, professor. thanks so much for the discussion. . >> thank you. so, despite the presence of a life-saving vaccine, the u.s. is now seeing the highest number

the fda has authorized a booster dose for pfizer's covid-19 vaccine for people 65 and older, as well as people with high risk of severe disease. this is coming as the country sees the rate of new cases slowing at this point in time. deaths, though, have hit over 2,000 a day. that is the highest in six months. and the pace of vaccinations is the slowest that it's been in two months. former fda commissioner dr. scott gottlieb is with us now. his new book is called
3:37 am
"uncontrolled spread, why covid-19 crushed us and how we can defeat the next pandemic." doctor, thank you for being with us. >> thanks a lot. >> so i want to ask you, because you see the numbers, two numbers going in the wrong direction. vaccines trending down after an uptick. deaths at 2,000 people every day. and there is a vaccine that can largely prevent those deaths. how do you feel watching that as a doctor? >> well, look, it's tragic. this is now an avoidable death certainly. and if we can get more people vaccinated we can start to bring down the numbers. i wouldn't take too much solace that the case numbers are declining across the country. that is driven by the fact that cases are collapsing in the south. they had a dense wave of infection. we are seeing it in the midwest
3:38 am
in states like kentucky, the pacific northwest with a dense wave sweeping through those states. ohio. there is a perception that higher vaccination rates in the northeast and i'm here in the northeast today and we have immunity from prior infection impervious to a delta wave in this part of the country, i don't think that's necessarily the case. i think we will see infections pick up as kids go back to schools and the weather gets cold and people start to go back to work. >> i know you talk to experts around the world. are you talking to a doctor in new zealand or england where the vaccination rates are so high and looking at what's going on in the u.s. and they think it's nuts. what do you say? >> yeah, look, we have a lot of difficulty in this country getting people vaccinated. the overall rate of vaccination rates of adults over age of 18 is about 77%, which is pretty
3:39 am
good. we have been building that over the course of the last six, seven months. the biden administration has been pushing out the vaccine, doing a pretty good job getting people vaccinated. but it's not enough. we need to get to 80% to 85% to have enough vaccination in the population that you start to see case rates decline and the velocity of spread start to slow. we have immunity in the population from prior infection. that does count. people previously infected do have some immunity from continued infection. we don't know how long it will last. people who are relying on natural immunity they, too, will need to get vaccinated at some point. >> what does winter look like here in the u.s.? >> yeah. i think this delta wave may be the last wave of infection. assuming nothing unexpected happens. we don't get a variant that
3:40 am
pierces the immunity by vaccination. so assuming that doesn't happen, and i think it's unlikely, this will be the last major wave. this becomes a more systemic endemic risk. you have spread but not at the same rate as it is right now. it settles into more of a seasonal pattern and becomes a seasonal flu, something on par with the flu. the challenges that we already have with flu, and if we have covid circulating, the cumulative death and disease is going to be too much for society to bear. we will have to do things differently in the wintertime to cut down on the risk of things like work and schools, improving air quality in indoor spaces, air infiltration, putting in place hand washing stations, encouraging hand washing stations, wearing masks voluntarily in public spaces during peak covid and flu
3:41 am
season. you will see masks becoming more culturally acceptable in parts of the country. once we get past this covid epidemic, it becomes a more endemic risk. >> you said yesterday we're heading in a direction where masks will become optional. can you be clear on that about where we are now on masks indoors. we are looking at schools, for instance. when do you think we are heading to a place where masks are optional? >> yeah, look. we need to base this on prevalence. once the prevalence starts to decline, a lot of the steps we have been taking become more routine and fade into the background, become more optional. people wear masks when prevalence is high and take them off when prevalence declines. right now prevalence is still very high. if you look at the south during the peak of their epidemic this summer, states like florida, mississippi, alabama had 110 cases per 100,000 people per
3:42 am
day. new cases diagnosed. that is exceptionally high. new york city in the summertime, when they had their mini delta wave, they had 20 cases per 100,000 per day. that is the level we will see on the back end of this wave. i don't think we will get down to levels where it's two to four cases per day which is what we had in june and july. i think we're still going to have a lot of cases this winter just because it's the wintertime. this is a winter pathogen. it likes to spread in the cold weather. when it goes down, you will lift some of the mandates and masks will be optional. people will wear them if they are at risk. but i don't think you will be mandating the use of masks. but we're a long way from that. we have to get through another surge of infection around the country. this isn't over. just because the south is coming down and the national average looks like it is falling, this has been highly regionalized
3:43 am
epidemic and will continue to be so. >> when do you think masks will be optional in schools? >> yeah. i think we're going to have to get to a point where the vaccines are widely available in schools. they aeurpren't inherently safe environments. masks are one tool. testing. implement twice a week asymptomatic testing of students you can cut down the risk dramatically. and keeping them in defined social pods. not letting students enter mingle but keeping them in their class and having them move around the school house within their class. you want to prevent outbreaks in those settings. a lot of people talk about the fact that covid hasn't been deadly in children, and thankfully it thats not. this would be a whole different ball game. but we don't know the long-term implications of this virus. you don't were want to see it become epidemic in children.
3:44 am
there are states in the south where this ripped through school houses. that is deeply unfortunate because we don't understand the long-termism indications of covid. >> you sit on the pfizer board. we have seen the recommendation for older americans and for people who are vulnerable. of course this is still going through the process this week with the cdc. the white house got ahead of this process talking about a rollout for all americans of a booster shot. do you think they jumped the gun? do you think the president jumped the gun? >> no, i don't. they didn't have to talk about a specific date. that created the perception they were getting in front of the regulatory process. if you want to make boosters available to an older population particularly in nursing homes, it takes weeks to get that in place, to get the logistics in place to deploy the boosters.
3:45 am
if they want to start administering this month or early next week, they need to have anaprox mat date. it took four weeks to vaccinate 1.34 residents in nursing homes. this was over a time period when we were losing 7,000 people a week in nursing homes. we had to wait four weeks to get into the nursing homes to start vaccinating because they hadn't planned into advance to go into the facilities. it took a long time to get consents with the patients. you had to get the concept by the families. the biden administration didn't want to make the same mistake. they wanted logistics in place. they were just trying to get the logistics nailed down so they could get ready to administer the vaccines. and they will be. >> dr. got hraoeb, we appreciate your perspective. your book out now is "uncontrolled spread."
