arizona. 5.7 million spent on the ninja turtles going through all the ballots. >> ninja turtles, mm-hmm. the gop led arizona recount confirmed that president biden won the state in 2020. thanks for your time today. hope to see you back here tomorrow. busy news day. ana cabrera picks up our coverage right now. hello and thanks for being with us. i'm ana cabrera in new york. we're following several big stories right now. new stunning insight into just how close the u.s. came to a full-blown constitutional crisis. former president trump asking the department of justice not once but nine times to undermine election results. we're going to break down next pleasive report. plus, brian laundrie's dad just moments ago seen here in this red truck entering a nature reserve after remnants of a campsite were found.
10:01 am
what does this mean in the search for a fugitive? we've got a former investigator standing by, but, first, it's the nuts a lot of parents and pediatricians have eagerly awaited. pfizer has officially filed for fda emergency use authorization for its covid-19 vaccine for kids ages 5 to 11. if this gets the green light it would mean 94% of all americans would be iljibl for vaccination against covid, 94%. let's begin with cnn's elizabeth cohen. if authorized this would be the first covid-19 vaccine for younger children. what data does pfizer have and how soon could we get the grown light? >> ana this, could happen quite quickly and the reason we know that is when pfizer applaud for emergency use authorization at the end of last year it was a matter of weeks. let take a look at what that could mean for children. so, before the fda does anything
10:02 am
their external advisers, a group of people advisers to the fda, they meet on october 26 to look at all the data. now, for adults when the cdc gave the green light it was just two days after those advisers met, so, in other words, the advisers met and two days later the cdc said yes, we can get the vaccine so it is very possible that by halloween we could have a vaccine for children ages 5 to 11, not for sure but it's certainly looking like it could be possible. let's take a look at the data. pfizer is dorg a clinical trial, more than 22% children and they gave the children the a -- gave the children a dose up-third the size of those for the adults and said the vaccine created a robust antibody response. it's good but not what the fda is really looking for. they want to know the children in the clinical trial when they got a vaccine, were they less
10:03 am
likely to contract covid-19 and get sick compared to children in the clinical trial who did not get the vaccine, and we don't know yet, but we do expect to learn that data before the october 26th fda advisers meeting. ana. >> that's just a couple of weeks away so very soon. thank you, elizabeth cohen, for all of that. >> thanks. >> this is a game-changer. former fda commissioner scott gotlieb says he thinks once kids 5 to 11 are eligible for the vaccine plus the merck antiviral pill, once that's authorized, we're looking at a pivotal moment in the fight against covid. take a listen. >> i think those two things will be sort of a bookend on the sort of pandemic phase of this virus and we're going to be entering the more endemic phase, becomes an omnipresent risk but not the extreme risk. >> let's bring in the head of vaccine development at children's hospital. do you agree that this could be
10:04 am
the end of the pandemic fades? >> i certainly hope scott gotlieb is right. i would love it, but we have some hard realities especially in this part of the country, ana. only 33% of the 12 to 17-year-olds were given the covid-19 vaccine here in the south. most of the southern states compared to 80% in the northeast, so once again you have this geographic divide where parents are holding back on vaccinated their adolescents, and i have to believe they will probably hold back on vaccinated the younger kids as well so we may be looking at very low up take of this pediatric vaccine in the south and also in the mountain west, and that's going to be a problem that's going to slow us down. you know, the bar to halt transmission of covid-19 it's doable, but it's a high bar. we're talking about 15%, 95% of the entire u.s. population vaccinated. you might say that's impossible. it's no. we do it every year for males
10:05 am
and for diphtheria, pertussis and it takes a while to build the ecosystem and that will hold us back. >> so when do you think we'll get there? >> we have to keep trying. i think we're not doing enough to reach across the aisle and a lot of there are coming out of conservative groups out of defiance, and i think we need to work harder at it and keep plug away. the biden administration is doing all it can at the federal level in terms of federal mandates. >> well, they could -- they could do travel vaccine mandates on planes and trains and oh, you know, public transportation, interstate commerce sort of things, right? >> oh, absolutely, but, again, that's only still going to get us part of way there. we have about 75 million americans that we'll need to vaccinate and so much of vaccinations are regular rated at the state level, especially vaccine mandates at the schools, so the hard part -- the heard of the part is going to be working
10:06 am
with some of the governors of the red states to convince them around school mandates and to get better buy-in and a greater level of advocacy and going beyond just saying everyone is free to do what they want. that's not going to work for us. >> there are 70 million americans who have yet to get that first shot as you point out, so looking at state of play, this is interesting. right now more people are getting their booster shot per day than people getting a first or second shot according to the cdc. what's your reaction to that? >> well, remember, we've lost now 100,000 americans over the summer from covid-19 overwhelmingly here in the summer despite the availability of safe and effective vaccines. this is not defiance, not from misinformation or it is information, i call this anti-science aggression coming from political extremism on the right and that's a reality. we have to figure out a way,
10:07 am
100,000 merpts have lost their lives due to anti-vaccine aggression. >> covid-19 has taken the parents or grandparents of 140,000 american children according to the cdc so that's as many in 1 in 500 kids in the u.s. put that into perspective for us, and what do you see as the longer-term impact of this? >> yeah, and a lot of that -- both those pre-and post-vaccines, pre-vaccines down here in text yeah, and we've spoken about this before, especially in the hispanic communities in south texas, here in houston. so many, you know, 40, 50, 60-year-old parents lost their lives and orphaned a lessents and young adults and, you know, i testified before the congressional hispanic caucus and said this is historic decimation of an hispanic that

10:14 am
democracy itself. a short time itself the senate judiciary committee released the most complete account so far of donald trump's efforts to overturn the election results. its conclusion in short, the nation teetered on the brink of a constitutional crisis as a sitting president plotted to launch a bloodless coup. evan perez joins us along with whitney wild. evan, what else are we learning from this senate report? >> ana, every time you hear new details and you read the transcripts of what went on in those week -- week and a half at turn of the year, you are just -- you just find it astounding to see what was happening as top justice department officials were under tremendous pressure from the former president, from mark meadows, his then chief of staff to try to get the justice department to intervene and to try to get the justice department involved in some of
10:15 am
the bogus fraud claims they were making to try to overturn election. a number of things that stood out in the report. there were at least nine times that the president himself reached out to jeffrey rosen who was then the acting attorney general, to richard donahue who was his deputy, the acting deputy attorney general to try to get them to do something, to try to say that the doj was finding some irregularities which, of course, there were none. trump was also pushing to get jeffrey clark, another official down at the justice department who he thought would be willing to do this, to have him become the acting attorney general and then it became so much that during a key meeting in september, pat cipollone and other lawyers told the president they would resign with a number of other justice department officials and essentially if he had put jeffrey clark in this group would be a suicide pact.
10:16 am
strong words and it gives you a sense of what was happening. republicans said after this rap that in the end he listened to his advisers, yes, he listened to them but the extraordinary pressure they were under is because of the them standing up to him. and this report was done by the senate january committee and there's still a problem with the select committee in the house. what is the stat tus today for anyone. we're in a holding pattern. the time looinch here is impo
10:17 am
important. the committee wanted a week to assess the documents that were supplied to them and then start these depositions. the idea, of course, is that you want to ask informed questions before you start bringing in these key players because they know they might not get very many opportunities to actually interview them so the fact that we don't yet know what information has been supplied or if any information has been supplied makes it more apparent that perhaps if the house select committee can't get what it wants the timeline becomes stickier. right now we're in a holding pattern for thee four people but other people believe in the solidity of the subpoena basically saying they plan to comply. other people, specifically members of the rally organization, the real organizers rather who were a part of that stop the steal rally movement on both january 5th and january 6. we know at least some of those people on that list plan to comply so there will be information provided. it just depends on who and what questions they are able to s. at
10:18 am
this point we're in the very beginning of that investigatory process. >> thank you both for your reporting. joining us to further discuss is known political analyst gloria borger and elliott williams, a former federal prosecutor and legal analyst. i want to start with you on the explosive new senate judiciary committee reporting that's giving us new insight into what was happening behind the scenes in the white house and, you know, the top echelon of the justice department just before the insurrection and this report is damning. what is your top takeaway? >> look, it's stunning and astounding and not jet surprise. what we have is a meeting inside the oval office where the president of the united states was effectively trying to orchestrate a coup and you had people standing up to him, pat cipollone, white house counsel, saying don't do that, so the president had the match. he was going to light the fire
10:19 am
and in the end they talked him out of it, but you have to take a step back and say wait a minute, what's the context of all of this, and the context is that the president of the united states had been repeatedly dozens of times been calling state and local officials trying to exert the same kind of pressure on them to reopen voting saying that there was fraud, et cetera, et cetera, and he had been rebuffed. he had been rebuffed in arizona, in georgia, in michigan and on and on so this was just kind of an extension of that, and what he was saying was, okay, if you guys won't do it, i'm going to fire the guy who is the acting head of the department of justice, and i'm going to put in my guy who will do whatever i want, and that was when pat cipollone, the white house counsel stepped in, said you can not do this or we'll all walk
10:20 am
out the door and that will really create a firestorm. >> elliott, the senate judiciary committee has issued some preliminary recommendations based on the repeat and they described jeffrey clarke, the doj official who was will to go along with the election lies. where do you see this going? >> to piggyback on this point we're not or shouldn't be surprised by anything we're leverage. obviously this is putting more meat on the bones of a story that we've known for the last six or eight months. the senate judiciary committee is making clear recommendations as to how to avoid getting to this kind of cries at some point in the future and that's number one clarifying the ways in which the president, the white house can mun kate with the justice department addings that kind of communication at state level because the guidelines don't currently have that so number one clarifying what constitutes a threat to officials and also
10:21 am
here the jt modifying its own policy of not interfering in standing elections so that's very important. you know, i think we grouse a lot in washington about why did this happen? what stops it from happening george bush, and i think it's very important that congress, the body that oversees this make clear recommendations. you know, notably they have not made any criminal referrals here and practically i think they should not, it's early and they should wait until the end of their investigation if possible. >> that's a recommendation when it comes to accountability, that's an important piece of all of this and yet, gloria, republicans are still sticking by former president trump. they issued a counter report in fact saying trump did nothing wrong because he ultimately backed away from that plan to replace rosen the then acting attorney general. what do you think of that argument? >> i think it's absurd that they can't even say that the
10:22 am
president didn't do anything wrong. i mean chuck grassley notably said he didn't do anything wrong because it didn't happen so he didn't follow through on what he wanted to do so if you want to rob a bank and you go in and you decide, you walk in the front door and you have your gun in your pocket and you tell people to get on the floor but then you decide maybe you don't want to robert bank and you leave, is that okay? you didn't do anything wrong. you didn't rob the bank. >> but he did take -- he took action that resulted in an insurrection. >> i'm not the lawyer here. elliott is a lawyer rlt it's difficult to figure out legally what you can do with this and it raises all kinds of questions as elliott was saying, but it's crystal clear what the president's intentions were here, and, you know, what's shocking to me is that republicans just don't come out
10:23 am
and say this is wrong. he should not have been doing this. he should not have been trying to interfere in an election as he was clearly doing and we need to figure out a way to make sure that this doesn't happen again. >> elliott separately but related, over 2,000 pages of court documents reveal trump allies rudy giuliani and sydney powell testified under oat that they did little to check out some of the uncorroborated claims that they made about 2020 election fraud before they went on to amplify them on the national stage. they are lawyers. what's your reaction to that? >> yeah. that goes right to potentially defamation suit against them is the main thing is you're suing someone for making a false statement follow damaging you. it's now clear that they have
10:24 am
making false statements. they have established on the record now that we knew and didn't investigate these claims, number one. number two, yes, it's one thing for a politician to lie and misrepresent facts. it's another thing for a lawyer to do it. look, i love a good lawyer joke as much as everybody else but at the end of the day when lawyers are being dishonest as mayor giuliani has clearly said that he is, it hurts the entire process and the entire profession and the entire legal system and it's disgraceful conduct that will likely bring some kind of sanctions from the bar be it new york or anywhere else. >> elliott williams on gloria borger, thank you both for the conversation. >> another major developing story right now. brian laundrie's father is with police or his son apparently went hunting. we'll have a live report from florida next. customization. that's why i love liberty mutual. they customize my car insurance, so i only pay for what i need.

anthony, police asking laund roy's father to help them in the reserve. is that unusual or is this routine? >> i would call it very unusual. the only thing is you've got a lot of ground there to cover. maybe the father has some type of mileage where brian preferred to go in that area, i don't know, but with all of that manpower needing to bring in the father issed to me, and i real wonder what they are trying to do with this. >> and there was this campsite discovered that we learned about in the last 24 hours. this is a sprawling 24-000 plus suker. what does that mean going forward? >> it's significant. you have to know if that's part
10:33 am
of the crime scene or not, the site of the homicide or some type of other activity. that's a positive so the police don't have to do -- still has toss do their work and the fbi still has to do their work with this found campsite but until we have brian laundrie, we really don't have much. >> yeah. >> but how -- how do they go about determination whether laundry was at that campsite and how quickly could they make that determination? >> well, you could -- you could look at forensics. could you look for evidence, maybe some personal effects may be there. maybe something there belonged to gabby, i don't know. but that is something that they must throat as a possible crime scene so it has to be protected. it the has to be gone through by forensic specialists, you know, csi, and look for anything that could be an indicator that could link it back to mr. laundrie. >> speaking of his parents' role in all of this, their timeline,

on capitol hill, a deal is struck, and a crisis averted. or at least delayed. a short time ago, senate majority leader chuck schumer announced a short-term agreement to extend the debt ceiling after a three-month stalemate with republicans, so the immediate threat of a first-ever government default is kicked down the road a couple of months until december. cnn's lauren fox is on capitol hill, and, lauren, disaster averted but not for long. >> reporter: well, that's right, ana, and they still have some details to work out on this short-term increase to the country's borrowing limit. just because schumer and mcconnell agree doesn't mean that every single member is ready to move this along quickly. one of the holdups that we're getting a sense of at this hour as lawmakers are going into their private lunches is than the republican side there are some objections to going ahead and moving this with just a
10:41 am
simple majority vote. instead, what some conservatives want to see is they want to require a vote at a 60-vote threshold this. sounds of kind of in the weeds, but the reason that this is important is because this would give republicans an opportunity to have to vote in part to help democrats increase the debt ceiling. remember, it's a 50-50 senate. if you have a vote and you need to advance that legislation, you need some republicans to help you with that step. right now, there's a question. which republicans would be willing to help democrats advance this legislation? republican leaders had hoped and they are still hoping in this private luncheon to take their members off the ledge to just let democrats have this vote at a simple majority threshold so they can pass it on their own without any republican fingerprints, but you can see here why the republican leaders are in a little bit of a conundrum. they are trying to work through it. we'll see if they can in the next hour or so.
10:42 am
>> this would provide the opportunity for the democrats to focus on some of the legislation they have been battling over internally. where do things stand right now on infrastructure? >> the expectation, of course, is that the debt limit will be increased one way or the other but then democrats, like you said, can go ahead and pivot to the bipartisan infrastructure bill that needs to pass out of the house and the bigger safety net bill. we know joe manchin was at the white house having some discussions. he's been one of the key holdouts given his concern about the top line number. he wants it to be around $1.5 trillion. originally it was sitting at 3.5 trillion. democrats realize they will have to slink this bill a little bit and some of the tough conversations are still in the works, and it's going to take several weeks for this to play out on capitol hill, so, yes, democrats are going to be able to pivot soon to that process, but there will be a lot of weight on their shoulders as they try to figure that out. >> great job, lauren. thanks very much.

league's sexual misconduct scandal front and center. >> this was a similar scene about half an hour ago between the teams. >> during the six minutes at each of the league last night the players stopped the game and locked armed and gathered in solidarity. the fans cheered and gave a standing ovation following an investigative report last week in which investigators claim paul rile, the now former head courage of the north carolina courage used his influence and power to sexually harass player and in one instance coerce a player no sex. the coach was fathered and the league's commissioner resigned. this sunday an all new season of "this is live" with lisa ling begins. lisa will tackle the defining issues that occurred during the past year. a look at what was happening to
10:50 am
the american economy 40 years ago and how it triggered a rise in hate towards asian-americans. that still exists today. here's a preview. >> by 1982, one in five detroit residents were out of a job. >> it's few and far between. jobs are hard to come by. how about you? you hiring? >> the only thing i can say is, move somewhere else. >> suddenly, after a lifetime of well-paying jobs where they could afford a house, two cars, a recreational vehicle, a summer cottage, suddenly it was wiped out. >> the only answer is charity. >> people became destitute. the frustration turned into anger. people want to know, why is this happening to me? who can i blame? in the beginning, the workers blamed the companies. factories blamed the workers. the politicians blamed each other. and in the end, they kind of all reached a consensus, let's blame japan.
10:51 am
>> joining us now is the host of "this is life," lisa ling. lisa, good to see you, and this premier episode, you look at this terrible hate crime that ends up happening, the murder of vincent chen, a chinese-american man in detroit. tell us more about that and why it's so important. >> well, ana, we're looking at this event in history because we're doing something a little different this season. we are grounding all of our episodes in something that happened in america's past that we didn't learn about in our history books because in so many ways, it has impacted where we are today. and in the case of vincent chen, who was a young chinese-american man who was living in detroit in 1982, he was out at a bar celebrating his bachelor party, and two out-of-work auto workers sta st started taunting him.
10:52 am
an altercation ensued. they were kicked out and they waited for vincent outside of the bar. when vincent went out, the two men chased him down and beat him to death with a baseball bat and those two men never served a day in jail or prison. they were fined $3,000 and had to serve some months of probation. but you look at what's happening today, ana, and in the last year and a half, since covid got rooted here in america, asians, asian-americans have been scapegoated and blamed for bringing the virus to america and all over the world, and in so many ways, it has just continued this pattern of scapegoating that really dates back over 100 years, and it's important to recognize these stories from the past, these stories that didn't make our history books, because if we're ever going to move forward, we have to recognize where we've been in order to be able to move
10:53 am
forward and do something different. >> and why focus on vincent chen specifically? that's not a name that most of us have heard. perhaps some of us. but why do you think that his case hasn't had, i guess, more publicity or that it isn't something we talk about more commonly? >> well, it was a case that really galvanized the asian-american community and it became the first civil rights case involving an asian-american in american history, and again, you know, vincent chin's case is an example of this continuous scapegoating that asian-americans have endured in this country, and all of the episodes this season, you know, they're very different. we cover an episode -- or we have an episode about a time in american history when gay people, during the 1950s, were considered a threat to our national security. we also have an episode about
10:54 am
the chicago race riots of 1919. we're talking about something that happened a century ago, but you can draw a line from that race riot and the segregated housing that ensued to what's happening in the streets of chicago today. >> what shocked you most about what you have discovered? >> i think the thing that has shocked me is just the parallels to what is happening today and look, ana, i mean, it's confounding to me that one of the biggest debates happening in government, in local legislatures, in school boards, in families, is around the teaching of history. and i think it's so important to teach a multifaceted or adopt a multifaceted approach to history because this is when young people learn empathy and by understanding the contributions but also things that other communities have endured, this is how we build tolerance and
10:55 am
become more empathetic to our fellow americans. >> i'm so, so looking forward to seeing your reporting, lisa, you always do such a wonderful job, and bringing to light a lot of what isn't always discussed or at least isn't top of mind and is important for us to understand. really appreciate it. good luck with the season. i hope it's a huge success, and be sure to tune in to an all-new season of "this is life" with lisa ling, premiers sunday night at 10:00 p.m. eastern only on cnn. that does it for me. thank you for being with us. until next time, follow me on twitter, @anacabrera. the news continues right after this. listerine® cleans virtually 100%. helping to prevent gum disease and bad breath. never settle for 25%. always go for 100. bring out the bold™ ♪ limu emu & doug ♪
