tv   CNN Newsroom With Pamela Brown  CNN  October 30, 2021 3:00pm-4:00pm PDT

3:00 pm
alec baldwin tells paparazzi the shooting on the set of his latest film "rust" was a, quote, one in a trillion event. >> we were a very, very, you know, well-oiled crew shooting a film together, and then this horrible event happened. >> reporter: as the january 6th commission investigates donald trump's role in the insurrection, new details on the huge trove of documents he's trying to keep hidden from congress. >> from his point of view there's no good that can come
3:01 pm
from any light being shed on his activities. >> reporter: january 6 committee member jamie raskin weighs in. just days before the polls open in virginia's high-stakes race for governor -- >> he wants to force you to join a union. he wants to laysraise your taxe. >> reporter: the candidates are making final pitches with more than a million early ballots already cast. >> bwe work with reasonable republicans, but glenn youngkin is not a reasonable republican. kids ages 5 to 11 could start getting pfizer's covid-19 vaccine as soon as tuesday. >> there's a really good reason to have the children vaccinated. i'm pamela brown in washington. you are in the "cnn newsroom." for the first time since the shooting that left a sinninni to -- cinematographer dead, alec baldwin is speaking out.
3:02 pm
natasha chen now, what did baldwin say? >> reporter: yeah, pamela. baldwin was being followed by cameras. he was with his family, and he stopped his car to get out and talk to paparazzi, really taking his time but being careful not to say anything that would affect the ongoing investigation. the person you see next to him, the woman there with her phone out, as well, is his wife. here is all four minutes of the interaction with paparazzi. >> i will -- >> what do you want to know? >> what's the correct state of what's going on with the case -- >> i'm not allowed to make any comments because it's an ongoing investi investigation. i've been ordered by the sheriff's department in santa fe, i can't answer any questions about the investigation. i can't. it's an active investigation in terms of a woman died. she was my family. she was my family. the day i arrived in santa fe to start shooting i took her to dinner with joel, the director. we were a very, very -- excuse me -- we were a very, very, you
3:03 pm
know, well-oiled crew shooting a film together, and then this horrible event happened. now, i've been told multiple times don't make any comments about the ongoing investigation. and i can't. i can't -- i can't. that's it. what other questions do you have other than that? >> you met with the -- i forget her name, you met with her family -- >> halyna. her name is halyna. if you're spending this much time waiting for us, you should know her name. >> halyna hutchins, i met with her husband. [ inaudible ] i wouldn't know how to characterize it -- >> you guys, you know -- no details. >> do me a favor, i'm going to answer the question. >> i appreciate he was very upset. >> the guy is overwhelmed with grief. this is something that -- you know, there are incidental accidents on film sets from time to time, but nothing like this. this is a one in a trillion accident, one in a trillion.
3:04 pm
and so he is in shock, he has a 9-year-old son. you know, we are in constant contact with him, as we're very worried about his family and his kid. and as i said, we're eagerly awaiting what the sheriff's department tells us what the investigation has yielded. what else do you have? >> would you ever work on another film set that involves firearms of that nature? >> i couldn't answer that question. i really don't have -- i have no sense of it. i do know that in an ongoing effort to limit the use of firearms on film sets is something i'm extremely interested in. but remember, something that i think is important -- that is how many bullets have been fired in a film and tv shows for the last 75 years? this is america. how many bullets have gone off in movies, on tv sets before? billions. the last 75 years -- nearly all of them without incident. so what has to happen now is we have to realize that when it does go wrong, and this horrible
3:05 pm
catastrophic thing, some new measures need to be taken place. rubber guns, real -- [ inaudible ] it's urgent that you understand i'm not an expert in this field. so whatever other people decide is the best way to go in terms of protecting people's safety on film sets, i'm all in favor of. and i want cooperate with that in any way that i can. >> do you have any further projects in the works at the moment, or is everything on hold? >> no. that's irrelevant to what we're talking about. >> do you think production will start up again -- >> no, i don't. >> why vermont, alex? >> that's -- no, that's -- that's private. >> anything else? >> okay. >> just do me a favor -- my kids are in the car crying. >> because you guys are following us -- >> as a courtesy to you, i came to talk to you. i'm not allowed to comment on the investigation. i talk to the cops every day. every day. >> they know where you are. >> i'm cooperating with them, of course. my point is is that -- that i'm asking we sat down as a courtesy now to talk to you.
3:06 pm
now please would you stop following us, just leave us alone. >> go home. go home. >> thank you. condolences. thank you. >> turn it off. >> so you can tell a very tense interaction, but relatively courteous. he did take his time to answer the questions that they have. keep in mind that baldwin is not only an actor in this movie but also a producer, as well. the comment he made about talking to police every day, that tracks with what we've heard from the sheriff's office here in santa fe, new mexico. a source telling my colleague josh campbell that investigators have been in touch with him whenever they have followup questions, that he's willingly answering them. at the same time, on friday we saw the armorer release a statement through her lawyer saying that she has no idea how a live round got on the set. the sheriff here is interested in doing a followup interview with the armorer, hannah gutierrez-reed, as well as the assistant director.
3:07 pm
pamela? >> all right, natasha chen, thank you so much. and now we pull back the curtain from behind the violent scenes of january 6th. there are new details tonight on t the tactics deployed as the u.s. capitol was under siege in a potential coup that was under way. many revelations involve the man you see speaking right here -- that is john eastman. you see rudy giuliani beside him, and like him, eastman is a former trump lawyer who spoke at the january 6 rally to promote the big lie that the election was stolen. eastman had been pushing for vice president mike pence to block congress' vote to certify the electoral college results, something the constitution didn't allow pence to do. and that only enraged the r rioters more. [ chants ] >> we want pence! >> it's over! >> as the mob came dangerously close to a fleeing pence, eastman fired off a shocking
3:08 pm
email. he told a pence aide that the vice president was to blame for the violence. quote, the siege is because you and your boss did not do what was necessary to allow this to be aired in a public way so that the american people can see for themselves what happened. end quote. joining me is one of the reporters who broke this story, josh dossey of "the washington post." nice to see you. it's interesting that in the email -- and i know there were a series of email exchanges that you were reporting on, he said what happened as though there was widespread fraud. we know that there wasn't, and it was a fair and free election, josh. tell us more about what you have learned here. >> what we learned is in the days leading up to january 6th, the vice president and his team had had multiple meetings with john eastman, the trump lawyer, and the whole series of different theories, arguments, how the vice president could actually not certify the election in his mind.
3:09 pm
and the vice president did not agree. and then when they got to the capitol on january 6th and the rioters approached the capitol and they were in the chamber, greg jacob, a top lawyer to vice president pence, his chief counsel, sent an email to mr. eastman and said, basically, he's -- he said basically your actions are why we're under siege, saying all of his arguments and mr. jacobs' mind were snake oil. that's when he wrote back, no, you're under siege because of what you did. later that night, even after the rioters had been cleared out of the chamber and vice president pence had gone back up to the dais to try and finish the certification of the election, mr. eastman sent either email asking them to reconsider certifying the election after all this had taken place. >> even after all of this he sent another email asking. it's stunning. how is eastman responding to this? >> so eastman says that the only
3:10 pm
reason he wrote that email on january 6th was because of the response from mr. jacob, vice president's chief counsel who is going to respect a member of the republican bar. and mr. jacob wrote pretty detailed draft op-ed saying that mr. eastman and others should face potential bar disciplining, you know, should be in trouble for what they did. he said because they repeatedly, in his mind, knowingly misled the president of the united states. mr. eastman continues to say the election was rigged. he has not -- he's not changed his course on that and said that nothing that he did in the days leading up to the election was wrong. and he took no contrition for the emails he sent on the 6th. ju . >> thanks for your reporting from "the washington post." we appreciate it. >> thanks for having me. cnn has uncovered audio of john eastman four days before the capitol attack, putting pressure and a potential bull's-eye on pence.
3:11 pm
cnn's k team has this exchange between eastman and former trump adviser steve bannon. >> are we to assume that this is going to be a climactic battle that's going to take place this week about the very question of the constitutionality of the electoral count act of 1877? >> i think a lot of that depends on the courage and the spine of the individuals involved. >> when you said the courage and spine are you talking on the other side of the football? that would be a nice way to say a guy named -- vice president mike pence? >> yes. >> eastman has since downplayed how sound his legal theories were and how seriously they should be taken. but as we just heard, that was not the tone of his message before the siege on the capitol. and also new today, a laundry list of documents that former president trump wants to hide from house investigators focused on january 6th. overnight the house told a federal court trump has no legal right to protect those papers. let's break it down with our
3:12 pm
senior legal analyst and former prosecutor ali hoenig. let's start here, what specifically does the president want to block? >> pam, what we have is what appears to be a treasure trove, for lack of a better term, of what trumps saying and what people in the white house were writing down on the days before january 6th and on january 6th about election fraud and the certification of the presidency. so these are not documents we've seen. all this is is a list so far from the national archives that was put in a court filing that details the itemization of all of the things that donald trump does not want to have out there in the public. what we know is it's white house visitor logs, call records, it's 30 pages of trump's daily schedule, it's officials' notes and memos on efforts to undermine the election. there's handwritten notes from the chief of staff, mark meadows, about election integrity, trump's election
3:13 pm
fraud push. there's 600 pages in binders from the press secretary about talking points related to the election, and all of this is about january 6th. it's documents the house is pursuing as they investigate that attack. and these are things that trump says right now should be privileged, should be kept secret to protect the presidency. >> all right. so ali, let's bring you in. this is caught up in court. when could we find out more? could these documents potentially be released soon? >> yeah. pam, so there's a hearing scheduled on this for thursday, november 4th. a few days from now. the parties will make their arguments about executive privilege. and then the judge i believe will rule quickly because there's a november 12th deadline here at which point national archives will turn over these documents. i would expect the judge to give the ruling on november 12th. important to keep in mind, though, this is the district court, there is the trial court level, the lowest of three
3:14 pm
levels of courts that we have in the federal system. whoever loses here is surely going to go right to that next level, the court of appeals, ask the court of appeals to put this on hold while they rule. whoever loses at the court of appeals is likely to try to get this to the supreme court. on one hand the supreme court takes very few cases presented to it. on the other hand, it's hard to think of a case that more squarely presents constitutional issues that the supreme court might take. this is going to take months to play out. this week is going to be crucial. >> basically though, this is significant, this isn't just a few document t-- few documents. it's hundreds of documents around the election and just before january 6th and after. this is significant. >> not only are these important documents, i think these could be the most important single documents in the entire case. you're talking about documents created by the key players about the key players at the key days and during january 6th. i mean, looking at this from my former prosecutor's lens it's
3:15 pm
hard to think of a more important trove of documents that you could have than these. >> all right. thank you both for helping us better understand just how significant in is. and congressman jamie raskin from the committee investigating the riot is here to drill down on all of this in just a couple of minutes. you're not going to want to miss this conversation. also ahead tonight, taxes, tariffs, even some truffle as joe biden wraps a critical day at the g20 summit. kids 5 to 11-years-old could start getting covid shots as soon as tuesday. the chief of infectious diseases at johns hopkins all children's hospital joins me live to answer parents' questions about all of this. and then get set for a light show in the sky that puts clark griswald's christmas decorations to shame. you're in the "cnn newsroom."

3:19 pm
we are getting a glimpse of documents that former president
3:20 pm
donald trump wants to conceal from the house select committee investigating the january 6th attack on the capitol. they include visitor logs, call records, and even handwritten notes. democratic congressman jamie raskin is on the committee, and he led the impeachment prosecution of trump on charges he incited the insurrection. congressman raskin, thanks for being here with us. >> i'm delighted to be here with you, pamela. >> let's talk about these documents. how critical is it for the committee to see these documents? do you think they can provide a roadmap? >> we want to document a complete record of everything that was going on really minute by minute during the day of the insurrection. but to my mind, having gone through the impeachment trial, they're essentially backing up things we already know. trump tweeted out in the middle of the violence when scores of police officers had been hit over the head with confederate battle flags or lead pipes, when there were all of these injuries, when the vice president is being hunted down, and nancy pelosi is being hunted down -- he tweeted out that mike
3:21 pm
pence didn't do what he needed to do and was not showing the proper courage. so he continued to mobilize the kind of pressure that was suggested by "the washington post" article today. i mean, there was very clearly a plan on the political coup side to mobilize a campaign to get mike pence to block certification of the electoral college votes. there was simultaneously the mobilization of the oathkeepers and the 3%-ers, the proud boys and aryan nations and militiamen and the qanon followers to lead a violent insurrection against the congress. and what's starting to come into focus is how the two streams of activity came together. the political coup directed not against the president but against the vice president, and the violent insurrection directed at congress and the vice president to try to overthrow the election. so to my mind the call records, the travel logs, the handwritten notes, all of those things are filling in the portrait, but the
3:22 pm
basic storyline we knew coming out of the impeachment trial. >> then why haven't you subpoenaed john eastman who is emerging as a clear figure here in what you call the political coup? >> well, first of all, eastman's activities are perfectly clear at this point. he was the architect of the legal strategy to claim for the first time in american history that the vice president had the unilateral authority to reject electoral college votes that were the results of popular elections in arizona, in pennsylvania, in georgia. he was the one pressing that theory that was repudiated by the vice president, by his staff, by his private attorney, richard cullen, all of whom rejected it and said that was ridiculous. but what's coming out now is the way he's continuing to press it. and he's obviously a figure of intense interest to the january 6 select committee. >> does that mean we can see a subpoena coming in the next few days? what can we expect? >> i don't want to talk specifically about what's going on in any particular case, but i
3:23 pm
will say that anybody who's got any information -- especially people who have the most information -- are targets of great interest for us because we want them to be able to turn over all of the information that they have. and we've seen remarkable cooperation across the board from people who understand it's not just their legal duty, but really it should be their civic honor to be providing information about the worst attack on the u.s. capitol since the war of 1812. an event that threatened something like civil war-type action in the city of washington. >> i just want -- what do you mean by remarkable cooperation? i think there have been nearly 20 subpoenas sent from the committee, but very few from our reporting have actually shown up to speak with the committee. we know even like one of them, mark meadows, our sources are telling us that the committee is growing frustrated, wearing -- patience is wearing thin with pence. what do you mean by remarkable cooperation? >> there have been dozens and dozens of interviews that have taken place with people who were
3:24 pm
involved both on the political coup side and on the insurrection side, and other people have information about what was taking place. obviously we had to vote out criminal contempt charges to refer to the u.s. attorney to take to the grand jury in the case of steve bannon because of his blatant refusal to comply with a congressional subpoena. he just didn't show up. but we're being reasonable as the courts have always asked congress to be reasonable. we have the right to all this information, but if somebody can't show up thursday at 4:00 and they want to come monday at 9:00, if they've got a doctor's appointment, they got something else going on, we're going to, you know, participate in a process of accommodation with them. and people have raised different kinds of objections to this or that. again, we're trying to be reasonable and accommodating them. >> but like on meadows, for example, patience is wearing thin we're told. when will the committee get more forceful with, you know, being more aggressive to force his
3:25 pm
compliance? >> well, i mean, nobody is more interested in immediate compliance than we are because the clock is ticking. we know there are people who want to run out the clock for the 2022 elections. we're not going to allow that to happen. the request for records that we made in the national archives is completely reasonable. it's everything having to do with the january 6th insurrection which is based on our statutory authority by the legislation that created our committee. and so we have the right to all of that information. and the supreme court said as long ago as 1821 in anderson vs. dunn that congress has the right to get all of the information it needs for its legislative research. and we need to know what we need to put in place in order to prevent this kind of attack on congressional process in the future, and attempt to overthrow presidential elections. nothing could be more important in terms of our democracy than securing the processes of the presidential election. and we saw an attack both on the
3:26 pm
formal process of the election and also on our physical sitting in the house of representatives and in the senate. in the senate, of course, was occupied by insurrectionists marauders who came in and took over people's desks and put their feet up, you know, with the president -- the president of the senate's desk and so on. it was absolutely shameful, scandalous assault on american democracy. so we're going to get to the bottom of it. we're going to make a complete report to the american people about exactly what happened, what caused it, how the action went down, and then what needs to be done to make sure this never happens to us again. >> okay. stay right there, congressman. a few more questions after this break. stay with us. you could fret about that email you just sent. ...with a typo. aaaand most of the info is totally outdated. orrrr... you could use slack. and edit your message after it's sent.

3:31 pm
new today a wide-ranging list of documents that former president trump wants to hide from house investigators focused on january 6th. overnight the house told a federal court trump has no legal right to protect those papers. let's bring back in congressman jamie raskin from the select committee investigating the attack. he also led the impeachment prosecution of trump on charges he incited the insurrection. i want to pick up with what you said in the last block. you said so far the committee has conducted dozens and dozens of interviews. can you give us a better sense of who that entails, and have you talked with any of the people who were actually there at the rally beforehand or outside the capitol building during the insurrection? >> sure. we've got a remarkable staff of people, of lawyers and investigators and researchers. there were hundreds of thousands of photographs taken that day, not just by journalists and
3:32 pm
video cameras in the buildings but also by protesters. all those things have been put up on line. there were millions of text messages and email messages, tweets and so on. all of that is part of the reconstruction of the events of the day, and there were, of course, tens of thousands of people there, many of whom have come forward to talk. there are officers, of course, and we've had testimony from those officers. there were protesters there, staffers, members of congress. there were tons of people in executive branch who were involved in this, and most people were shocked that this took place in the united states of america. and have not gotten over it. and people are only increasingly scandalized that donald trump is trying to portray this as, you know, dr. king's march on washington part two. he said that the insurrectionists or the rioters were hugging and kissing the
3:33 pm
officers as they came in, which is presumably how 140 of them were wounded with broken arms and legs and noses and jaws and necks and so on. >> you said -- you mentioned protesters. how many have you talked to? >> i don't know the -- the right answer on that. >> okay. >> but clearly -- we have a line where people are calling in on. we have people who are very repentant about having been part of this and being pulled into it. a lot of people i've heard say publicly were drawn into it because president trump said that the election was being stolen, which, of course, is the big lie. and they came to washington for that reason. and so we have to rewind the clock, figure out exactly what happened and why, what was the role of the social media, who financed these events, who coordinated the violence with the political efforts to isolate mike pence, to get everybody chanting "hang mike pence" and to go after him. we're going to put together a
3:34 pm
serious chronology of events so america can understand it. >> so let's talk about that. you mentioned social media. i'm going to get to that in a second. what about call records? we know that some sitting members of congress, you have mo brooks, paul gosar, had potentially relevant engagement, conversations around january 6th. would the committee be willing to subpoena their call records? >> well, i don't know whether the chairman has spoken on that issue yet, and i don't know whether any decision has been made about any of that. so i can't comment on that other than to say, you know, every patriotic member of congress and i'm willing to believe that every member of congress is patriotic, should turn over all of the information they have right now and should be willing to submit it because why not? >> so you think mo brooks, paul gosar, they should be -- >> if they didn't participate in insurrection, then they should have nothing to be afraid of. i mean, i certainly would have no problem with having any of my
3:35 pm
call records for the week leading up to that turned over. you know, i don't think you'll find any calls between my office and the white house. but look, this is serious business because we can't go forward in america if we have outgoing president who's have lost their election denying that they've lost the election, claiming that they won it, and then mobilizing political coups and violent insurrections against the government if that's what happened. and that's what we're trying to determine here. >> are you willing -- >> that takes us to a very different form of government from everything we've known. you know, president biden has said that the autocrats of the world, the putins of the world, the general xis, they say to him that they don't -- they say joe biden, you're a nice guy, but democracy can't work. you don't -- >> we covered that extensively on this show, just the state of democracy, what would it mean if
3:36 pm
democracy recedes and so forth. it is a really important topic. i'm just wondering all the people who have not complied with the subpoena, would the committee be willing to grant immunity to anyone? >> absolutely. >> has that happened? >> i'm not speaking to any particular case. as one member of the committee, i would say if someone says "i think i might be incriminating myself under the constitution, under the fifth amendment," we have a privilege against self-inc self-incrimination. we will not use against you any of the information. >> has that happened yet? >> i don't know whether or not that's happened yet. but i have flohave no problem w. and i think -- look, we are not a prosecutorial committee. we're a committee that is charged with developing a report back to america, back to the congress and to the people of the united states about what happened and how we're going to prevent this from happening in the future. >> uh-huh. >> so right now we're turning over all information we have of criminal activity. if someone comes forward and
3:37 pm
says "i've got extremely relevant information, but i'm afraid that i may have committed a crime," then i would say they could enter into a conversation with our lawyers about use immunity. congress has statutory power to grant what's called use immunity. we won't use against you what you're telling us if you tell us everything you know and you tell us the truth. >> i want to ask you before we let you go about reporting i have with my colleague jeremy herb. it is that the select committee is targeting a 150-year-old law in an effort to prevent another january 6th. and we've heard that law referenced with the john eastman reporting now today. what exactly is the committee looking at? >> are they referring to the electoral count act? >> the electoral count act, yes. >> look, the electoral count act was simply an attempt to put some meat on the bones of the skeleton of the 12th amendment. and the 12th amendment is what governs our joint session of congress when we get together to receive electoral college votes sent over by the chief executives of the states who are
3:38 pm
reporting like the governor of pennsylvania here are the electors that have been decided upon by the people of pennsylvania in our election, okay. so the electoral count act describes what happens. it was in response to a very close con trowverted presidential election in 1876. it took like a decade to try to figure out what these details would be. parts of it are somewhat inscrutable, but we have stuck to it very closely. one of the things that eastman was talking about was just trying to get the vice president to declare that the electoral count act was unconstitutional, and the vice president was going to impose his own system under his dream. fortunately, vice president pence rejected all that. he leased a memo saying i don't have the authority to do what donald trump is essentially asking me to do. but we need to clarify that the vice president's role is an administrative role. it's a chairing role, a ministerial role. it's not a role where vice
3:39 pm
president harris could just say "i don't like the way that state looks, i don't like the way that state looks, i'm going to dispense with their electors." the state legislators from pennsylvania, arizona, and georgia, never asked for their electors to be returned. on the contrary, they were certified -- >> certified, right. >> the governors turned them over, so it was all made up when you've got steve bannon or eastman running around saying the states -- >> if the law -- the point is i think what happened with january 6th and all the efforts to overturn the election results is that this law clearly could be clarified. there could be more clarification -- that isis something -- >> the law could be tightened up to make sure that nothing like 2020, january 6th, ever happens again. that means we can tighten up the procedures for objections, for voting on objections, and for making sure that the popular will is vindicated. the electoral college is an old and somewhat creaky institution to the extent we're going to keep it, we've got to make sure that the popular will is
3:40 pm

joe biden getting a win at his first g20 summit as president. today he got world leaders to endorse a 15% global minimum tax. biden is hoping to reassure them that america is back and committed to its allies. cnn's phil mattingly is in rome covering the president's trip. what's important about this global tax? >> reporter: you know, i think what's most important, pamela, is this has been an effort that's been under way for eight, nine, maybe ten years at this point. and getting everyone in the g20 to endorse this proposal as the leaders did today, nearly 140 countries are behind it, is a significant step forward. now what this proposal actually does, 15% minimum tax on large corporations, and it also shifts where the revenue from that taxation goes to where customers actually buy those products versus where the companies are actually based. that's important because what
3:46 pm
it's going after is basically companies that are locating themselves or perhaps their subsidiaries in low-tax countries in order to dodge taxes from the countries where they sell their products. it's been such a -- an acute problem over the last several years, this goes a long way to starting to address that problem. i think it's important to note that was only one of the things the president secured today. the other was a trade truce with the eu. this has been a -- an issue of significant tension over the course of the last several years since former president trump slapped steel and aluminum tariffs on and then the recommendations from the europeans. that is now put to the side. $10 billion in goods and export will be affected by this. that's another issue that was taken off the plate. you saw the president talk about vaccine equity. every single leader in the g20 pushing the president's push to have 70% of the globe vaccinated by the middle of 2022. the president going the opposite direction of his predecessor, trying to go full on with multilateralism versus what we saw with the former president.
