tv   New Day With John Berman and Brianna Keilar  CNN  November 1, 2021 5:00am-6:00am PDT

5:00 am
jeff bezos and elon musk. the bloomberg puts his net worth at $31 billion. the fore tune grew 9.3 billion alone in one day. over the weekweekend, musk responding to someone who tweeted that cnn story "if the u.n. can show on this twitter thread exactly how $6 billion will solve world hunger, i will sell tesla stock right now and do it." adding "details must be open sourced accountings so the public sees precisely how the money is bent." $6 billion is less than 2% of musk's fortune. beasley later replied let's talk. too m it's not as much as falcon heavy. is musk serious? the vast fortune grows. the net worth has doubled during the pandemic, the u.n. world
5:01 am
food program won the 2020 nobel peace prize for its work on world hunger during the pandemic. >> i bet the world hunger program could find a use for $6 billion, no doubt about that. christine romans thank you so much. "new day" continues right now. good morning t is monday, november 1st. i'm john berman with brianna keilar. wolf blitzer also joins us from scotland this morning, where president biden has arrived at a critical stop on his visit to europe, he's attending a climate summit in glasgow. while he is overseas he could be poised finally for a major legislative victory here at home with key votes on his domestic agenda likely this week. >> overnight the president rolled out a long-term strategy to get the u.s. to net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. there are five key things, five key points. 100% clean electricity by 2035,
5:02 am
switching over to electric cars and buildings, helping people transition away from old wasteful appliances. reducing emissions from super pollutants and scaling up carbon renewal. a new report from the world meteorological organization says record levels of greenhouse gases are propelling the planet into uncharted territory with far-reaching repercussions for current and future generations. wolf blitzer is live with more on the summit that is so important for the future of the u.s. and the world. >> it is critical what is happening over the next several days in scotland and the words are powerful but the deeds, the actions that follow will be so much more important if in fact the actions really do follow. i want to bring in our chief
5:03 am
white house correspondent kaitlan collins with me in scotland and bill weir is with us as well. kaitlan, the president of the united states has arrived, arrived in edinburgh a while ago and thousands of the delegates are all over the place, trying to focus the world's attention. >> the president is trying to come with the message that the united states is leading the world on this issue. hopefully giving the speech along with several other world leaders talking about what the united states is prepared to do on this, the sense of where the delivery can match the rhetoric, the question, not just about what their goals are for 2050 often a year that you hear from these world leaders but what they're doing in the next decade, something the white house has been talking about, including the president's climate envoy, john kerry traveling with him here today.
5:04 am
several cabinet officials, a lot of lawmakers, former president obama coming next week. when the president speaks his aides will show he's making a personal commitment to combating climate change. john kerry says two big things are making sure they get a global ambition when it comes to containing a rise in temperatures and encouraging other nations to do more as well as reaching out to the private sector because they think that is going to be a significant aspect of this as well. we should note the context how the president is entering the summit. part of this is convincing other world leaders to take similar steps, china and russia are not going to be present here, something that the president said was a disappointment to him and what he is going to say about his own agenda back at home, it is not final ooirzed yet, the president says he hopes it will be this week. it's been scaled back from where it was initially because of senator joe manchin the moderate from west virginia who has ties
5:05 am
to the fossil fuel industry, also a question some of the world leaders may have for president biden. >> bill weir covers this extensively for all of us. bill, what do you think, will the strong words, we're going to hear a lot of strong words from those leaders who have actually gathered near scotland. will those words be followed up with not just tens of billions but hundreds of billions of dollars in action to get the job done. >> that is the question so many people in the global south in developing countries are asking wolf because this summit really 30,000 presidents and foreign ministers and heads of finance and scientists get together. this is a summit about trust. can you trust the richest countries in the world, which are responsible for 80% of the damage done to make good, to pick up the check for all of those poor countries that contributed nothing to the problem but are suffering the wrath of nature here. it's about corporations that are making all these grand pledges.
5:06 am
are they really in it for the health of the planet or is it trying to buy as much time social license to keep business as usual, but what's interesting about the president's pledges to decarbonize so quickly, his plan has been watered down so dramatically in congress it's all carrots and no sticks. incentives for folks to buy electric cars but no incentives for power plans to switch from coal. could buy a tesla but you may be charging it up with coal fired power. that is joe manchin's doing and another element to this is the supreme court has agreed to take up a case that led by republican states, energy states that would challenge the epa's power to regulate sort of planet cooking pollution right now. so every country it was so disappointing for so many environmentalists coming out of the g20 is they committed to "significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions takinging into
5:07 am
account national circumstances." well, national circumstances are why we've been kicking the can down the road for 30 years. every nation has some excuse why they need to keep digging coal or burning oil. india burns more coal than the united states and europe combined, they wanted promise from the g20 some of the poorest nations would get it, they didn't get it. boris johnson hosting the summit in the uk wants to relegate coal to history to the age of charles kic dickens. the competing international interests will make it tough. >> it certainly will. we'll hear extensively from president biden coming up fairly soon, his speech on setting the scene actually for what's going on here in scotland. unrelated to this, but i'm just curious, jen psaki, the white house press secretary sadly come
5:08 am
down with covid-19 herself, not on this trip. what is the white house saying? i know the president has been tested almost on a daily basis to make sure he's not positive. >> the president was just tested yesterday to enter the united kingdom, that's a requirement even for the president of the united states to get a coronavirus test. he has gotten his booster shot so doesn't seem to be a big concern for the white house but we learned late last night jen psaki, the press secretary who did not come on this trip, the day before she said she was not coming on the trip and they sent her deputy in her place remained home because members of her household tested positive for krch and she took a test every day and yesterday tested positive for coronavirus. she was revealing it out of an abundance of transparency but not been around senior white house staff since wednesday, not seen the president in person since last tuesday. when they did they were outside and wearing a mask. we heard from several physicians who said it's unlikely she could have infected president biden. it reveals the concerns and cautions.
5:09 am
at cop26 the global climate summit speaks to that. president world leaders were supposed to do a check-in and update on previous commitments sooner than this delayed because of the pandemic. >> they didn't have the confidence last year because of the pandemic, having it and getting together this year but extensive testing going on and they asked everyone to be fully vac nated. they can come provided they're tested on a daily basis and jen psaki is grateful she was fully vaccinated, that helps in her speedy recovery from covid-19. brianna, john, it's windy and chilly here but the words will be very powerful in setting the scene for hopefully some dramatic action in dealing with this critically important crisis. >> yes, it is so important and we'll be awaiting to see what happens. wolf, thank you so much, kaitlan thank you to you as well. in a critical breakthrough over the weekend house
5:10 am
progressives will support the bipartisan infrastructure bill and the social safety net bill when they come up for a vote which could come early this week. cnn political director and the host of the cnn political briefing podcast david chalian. the door isn't completely closed on the bill. prescription drugs, explain this provision to us. >> you know because you've been on the campaign trail for years, this has been a rallying cry not just of the left actually. this has been one of the issues where republicans have realized the popularity in campaigning on the notion of allowing medicare to negotiate with drug companies to lower the prices of prescription drugs, having some sort of government negotiation. many people feel prescription drugs are too high in this country so this is something year after year, every politician is promising they're
5:11 am
going to work on and it hasn't come to fruition, and so you say the door's still open. the door is still open because the time line keeps slipping and so with the door still open we learn from lawrence fox this morning that nancy pelosi, the speaker of the house and kiyrstn sinema ma, one of the moderates in the senate were meeting on this very issue because sinema has been sort of the road block throughout this process of getting a more robust version of prescription drugs into this bill. seemingly is apparently open to somewhat of a scaled back version and of course pelosi would love to turn to her caucus and say we're able to get this in, though we thought it was out. >> people can understand what a scaled back version looks like. we had congressman dan kilde, looking like drugs have been on the market long enough they'd be gen generic. a new drug comes out, super
5:12 am
expensive, they have excl exclusivity, no generic. not all drugs get to be negotiated but generics are. so progressives aren't getting everything they want here. >> without a doubt, not everything and i'm sure you'll see an effort because there's been such an industry around this in politics to take another bite at the apple down the road on a more robust program but again, progressives who have been sort of holding out and dealing with disappointment that many of their priorities had gotten out of this bill, even though the bill would be transformative and would be such a big win for the democrats at the end of the day when they get it across the finish line, this would go some distance to assuage some of the democratic priorities left out. >> big picture, this is a huge deal. >> really big deal. think about this. joe biden is president and's got a democratic majority in the house and the senate. slim, slim majorities in both but this is his best opportunity to enact longlasting agen da
5:13 am
items and presidents usually try to front load their presidencies to do that. that's what joe biden is doughing with this, the core of what he campaigned on, this notion of both the hard infrastructure and bringing the parties together and doing something positive for the country as well as the social safety net spending priorities, universal pre-k, home health care, even getting some aid, hearing aids to seniors or what have you. so this is, there are key components, the extension of the child tax credit that would be transformational for many americans. joe biden says it will give breathing room. history suggests democrats may lose one or both of these chambers in next year's midterm elections. this represents the best moment in time for joe biden to try and get through a big ticket item like this, and he's on the cusp of doing so. >> so many slipped deadlines, it's almost easy to forget how
5:14 am
big a deal this is. this will define his legacy. david, thank you so much. >> sure, no problem. it is a race to the finish for tomorrow's big elections in virginia and new jersey. one of the candidates on the ballot is going to join us next and alec baldwin breaking his silence for the first time since the deadly shooting on his film set. why his exchange with reporters got heated. what is former president trump trying to hide from january 6th investigators? turns out a very long list. strad plan to generate income, even when you're not working. a plan that gives you the chance to grow your savings and create cash flow that lasts. along the way, we'll give you ways to be tax efficient. and you can start, stop or adjust your plan at any time without the unnecessary fees. talk to us today, so we can help you go from saving...to living.

polls close tomorrow in key governors races in new jersey and virginia, the results could offer the first clues what's in store for next year's midterms. . new jersey, phil murphy is facing republican jack chitarelli. if murphy wins re-election he'd be the first democrat to do it since 1977. history is not on his side. joining is new jersey governor phil murphy. thank you for being with us. i know you just want to keep your job, that's what you were concentrating on between today and tomorrow. what do you think the results of this election and to a lesser extent, different extent in virginia as well, what do you think the results of this election will tell tell us? >> listen my nose is pressed against the jersey glass. i have less of a perspective
5:19 am
nationally or specifically to virginia although i wish my friend terry mcauliffe all the best. i think it says in new jersey if we win and that's what we're trying to do what we've been doing for the past four years is working and folks want to see more. we talked about a stronger, fairer new jersey that works not just for some but for everybody, from raising the minimum wage to a millionaire's tax to allow us to give the middle class a tax base to strong environmental and gun safety policies, strong union state, a whole mix of things that we've done toward that objective of stronger, fairer state. if we win, i think people will say you know what? we like what we've seen, we want to see more of it. >> what has the impact been of the president's popularity on your race, his popularity which frankly has been sagging nationally lately. >> listen, i will always stand by this president. we go way back. he was new jersey's third senator for decades. he was in new jersey a week ago
5:20 am
today and i was proud to stand by his side, in fact we did two events, one was pre-k expansion, new jersey is expanding it unlike any other american state, the other the portal north bridge which is a game changer for our commuters and we're doing a the lo of the stuff getting debated in congress and it's working not speculative. you don't have to wonder whether or not this stuff works. it's happening and working in new jersey. i was proud to stand with him. >> doesn't address my question, though, whether or not his popularity has had any impact on your race. you are a big supporter of joe biden. why is it do you think the rest of the country isn't seeing it quite like you are right now the popularity around 43%. >> my nose is pressed against the jersey glass but if i had to guess it's the following.
5:21 am
in washington it's what do we think about happen if we do "x" or y" if we fund this program or that program. in new jersey, we're doing it. we know what will happen. people benefit. people love it when you are all in on climate resilg yentcy, on gun safety, expanding pre-k and child care to cover for our mom's especially our single moms, making college more affordable, making health care more affordable. it's not speculation here. we're doing it and folks are reacting to it and they say we like what we see. >> what else' the role of the former president in this race, former president trump. how much do you think he is weighing on voters' minds or should? >> i'm running against a guy who has got a very extreme right wing set of policies which is very inconsistent, by the way
5:22 am
with the history of new jersey including the republican party. we've had republican governors in new jersey, moderate. tom cain sr., christy todd whitman, not radical right politicians so for whatever reason my opponent spoke at the stop the steal rally, he thinks early in-person voting was a bad idea. i'm on the side of opening up democracy. he's wishy-washy on vaccines and mas masking. i see the influence of the former president through the policies. i don't get it, i don't think it's consistent with where we are as a state but that's why we play the game. we'll know tomorrow night. >> how much do you think trump is on voters minds in new jersey? >> it's on the finds of the
5:23 am
folks supporting my opponent and probably on the minds of a lot of folks on our side who don't want toe go back to the us versus them reality that tore us apart. i suspect a fair amount. >> governor phil murphy trying to make history to be the first democrat reelected since 1977. appreciate you being with us this morning. >> thanks for having me, john. what is the former president trying to hide from january 6th investigators? here's a hint t includes a white house daily diary. happening today, the supreme court is about to hear oral arguments on the texas abortion ban potentially sealing the fate for roe v. wade. football, is a game of inches. but it's also a game, of information. because the nfl is connected. and at any moment, the fate of the season can come down to this. billions of secure connections, per second. when the game is on the line

(all cheering) it feels too good to be true. it's kicking back and relaxing as we pick up your car. and when you get paid on the spot, it feels like scoring big. you know the feeling. you just never imagined you could get it from selling your car. well, with carvana, you can.
5:28 am
experience the new way to sell a car. time now for "5 things to know" for your "new day." president biden arriving momentsing aat the site of the global climate summit in gloss gao, expected to speak later today trying to convince world leaders the u.s. is prepared to lead on climate. still not a done deal but president biden's domestic agenda is a big step closer to reality. most house progressives have signaled a willingness to support the bipartisan infrastructure bill and the larger social safety net bill, both likely to come up for a
5:29 am
vote this week. jen psaki is suffering mild symptoms after testing positive for coronavirus. psaki is not traveling with the president and last saw him on tuesday and biden has tested negative. a man dressed in a joker costume has been arrested in tokyo after brandishing a knife and starting a fire on a computer train. the incident left at least 17 people injured as one man was stabbed in the chest and panicked passengers scrambled to escape. has leia hutchins fatally shot on the "rust" film in new mexico was laid to rest in a private funeral sunday. alec baldwin has spoken publicly for the first time on camera about the accidental shooting. >> she was my friend. she was my friend. there are incidental accidents on film sets from time to time, but nothing like this. this is a one in a trillion episode. >> that's five things to know
5:30 am
for your "new day. " >> january 6th in real time, sometimes it's blatant beyond trump's chronic lies like tucker carlson's fox nation docs suggesting it was a false flag operation or trumpite congressmen protending the attackers were tourists and calling them political prisoners or this jackassery. >> did trump win or lose the election? >> i don't know. >> well, there you go. >> because here is the problem. >> the world does. >> sometimes the rewriting of
5:31 am
history comes in more subtle forms like the talking point that it's time to turn the page. parroted by mike pence who the mob wanted to murder or mitch mcconnell's decision to kill the initial january 6 commission or the 200 republicans who voted to save steve bannon from a contempt charge they were afraid of the wacko birds in the base. or the playbook in virginia sidestepping the big lie admitting that biden won only after his own primary was in the bag and then declining to say whether he would have certified the election. right now inside the gop there seem to be two primary ways of dealing with trump's attempted coup, disinformation and downplay. every day we get more information about why this fight over the facts matter so much. a court filing this weekend suggests that trump's trying to block approximately 750 pages of records from being released, these include white house records and phone logs around january 6th, as well as speech drafts, emails, and talking
5:32 am
points around his attempt to overturn the election. now first, administration records belong to the american people, not the ex-president. second, the fact that's trying to stop the release has little to do with executive privilege and everything to do with trying to hide evidence. trump knows that the truth will not set him free because the new details that do emerge paint a damning picture. read sunday's massive "the washington post" investigation which provides new evidence the attack was not spontaneous but spurred by trump's lies, online threats far earlier and more extensive. this was a coup attempt based on a lie spread by the ex-president nothing more serious. the vast majority of republicans rolled over the big lie. you care about democracy or you don't. the waters aided by the biden's tepid charges to date the 650 or
5:33 am
so people arrested. that was the message from a blistering statement from the bench she accused the doj sending muddeded and skets phrenic messages about the attack. no wonder parts of the public are confused whether what happened on january 6th at the capitol was simply a petty offense of trespassing with disorderliness or shocking criminal conduct that represented a grave threat to our democratic norms. let me make my view clear, the judge said, the rioters were not mere protesters. the judge is right on this one, treason must be made odious as andrew johnson said with the civil war. the charges fit the crime, not trespassing and obstruction of conspiracy to submit insur insurrection, solidified by the passage of laws like reform of the electoral count act to make sure that nothing like this plot can ever be pursued again.
5:34 am
rewriting history to protect the guilty was a civic sin, fear and greed in pursuit of short term political gain where we're seeing play out right now, the fever of the big lie will break only when republicans realize that it is a deal with the devil that leads to political defeat. that's your reality check. >> rewriting history is one of the biggest symptoms of totalitarianism, something that should alarm perfect >> that's right. >> john avlon, thank you very much. some new york city fire companies shut down, the companies not the firehouses but the companies have been shut down over staff shortages. what will happen later today when a vaccine mandate goes into effect. southwest airlines is investigating a pilot for what he said over the intercom about president biden.

we saw president bide an rife moments ago noticeably
5:39 am
absent from the global event is the russian president vladimir putin, putin did not attend the g20 summit in rome over the weekend. joining us now to discuss is fiona hill the former top russia adviser for president trump, and the author of the new book "there is nothing for you here." fiona, thanks so much for joining us. as you know, putin skipping trips to the g20 in rome, now the climate summit in glasgow. what is this calculation for sitting all this out? >> well i think the biggest calculation, wolf, is the pandemic, because if putin leaves right now, it's sending a bad signal at home. russia actually has its highest infection and mortality rates from the coronavirus, highest than any other point in the last couple of years. so this is really quite a test for him on the home front. so i think there was no choice really about whether he stayed or came to gloss gao but of course in his absence there's going to be a lot of scrutiny
5:40 am
what might russia do on the climate change agenda. >> president biden says it's disappointing that russia and china for that matter aren't showing up with climate commitments. how much can world leaders actually accomplish, fiona, in glasgow without their specific participation? >> look, i think it can do a lot in terms of tone. they need to find inspirational message here. this can't be another high level leaders meeting all bureaucracy and process and people talking to each other about grand plans. they have to strike a chord. we've heard from greta thunberg at the head of a youth movement that kids the next generation president biden's grandchildren's generation are extraordinarily worried about what's happening. we've heard an older generation the queen of england, queen elizabeth the ii caught off guard on an open mic saying how
5:41 am
frustrated she is with all the politicians just talking and not doing anything. we're getting messages from all sides, show us you can do something. president biden has to find the inspirational tone, dig deep and get momentum there that china and russia will have to respond to. >> we'll be hearing from president biden very soon opening remarks at this summit. the president is showing up without a finalized deal on his economic and climate plan back in washington. how do world leaders view the dysfunction of american politics what we've seen in recent weeks. >> fauci is a very big black mark for us here and does undercut biden's ability to mobilize everyone else because the united states is always shown leadership on the issues. the rest of the world is well aware during the previous administration there was a complete denial about the
5:42 am
climate change and refusal really to do very much about it. they're worried about the mid terms here in 2022 and then again about the presidential election in 2024. wondering if any momentum that biden gets on the global stage is going to be undercut here back in the united states. i think again when he's trying to get this inspirational message for collective action globally he's going to have to make some commitments he and former secretary kerry in marge of the climate change agenda have to show they can deliver something in the united states. eight not just setting a rhetorical tone but a policy tone, what are we going to do concretely in the united states as a populous as well not just a set of politicians. >> fiona hill thank you for joining us. appreciate it very much. brianna, back to you. >> thanks so much, wolf. >> thank you. the trump lawyer who laid out the plan to overthrow the

election makes a stunning admission. and could justice brett kavanaugh be the deciding vote on abortion rights in america? the monumental case heads to the supreme court today. it's my 4:05 the-show-must-go-on migraine medicine. it's ubrelvy. for anytime, anywhere migraine strikes, without worrying if it's too late, or where i am. one dose can quickly stop my migraine in its tracks within two hours. unlike older medicines, ubrelvy is a pill that directly blocks cgrp protein, believed to be a cause of migraine. do not take with strong cyp3a4 inhibitors. most common side effects were nausea and tiredness. ask about ubrelvy. the anytime, anywhere migraine medicine.
5:44 am
going to tell you about exciting medicare advantage plans that can provide broad coverage, and still may save you money on monthly premiums and prescription drugs. with original medicare, you're covered for hospital stays and doctor office visits. but you have to meet a deductible for each, and then you're still responsible for 20% of the cost. next, let's look at a medicare supplement plan. as you can see, they cover the same things as original medicare, and they also cover your medicare deductibles and co-insurance. but, they often have higher monthly premiums and no prescription drug coverage. now, let's take a look at humana's medicare advantage plans. with a humana medicare advantage plan, hospital stays, doctor office visits and your original medicare deductibles are covered. and of course, most humana medicare advantage plans include prescription drug coverage. in fact, in 2020 humana medicare advantage
5:45 am
prescription drug plan members saved an estimated $8,400 on average on their prescription costs. most humana medicare advantage plans include a silversneakers fitness program at no extra cost. dental, vision and hearing coverage is included with most humana medicare advantage plans and, you get telehealth coverage with a $0 copay. you get all this for as low as a $0 monthly plan premium in many areas. and your doctor and hospital may already be a part of humana's large network. if you want the facts, call right now for the free decision guide from humana. there is no obligation, so call the number on your screen right now to see if your doctor is in our network, to find out if you can save on your prescriptions, and to get our free decision guide. humana, a more human way to healthcare.
5:46 am
minutes from now the supreme court will convene to hear oral arguments on the controversial texas law that effectively bans abortion after six weeks of
5:47 am
pregnancy. joining me now cnn legal analyst and former prosecutor jeffrey toobin. they let this stand for the time being six weeks ago. what's going on here? >> what's going on here is somewhat of a mystery. the court is acting out of character in the way they have handled this case. first of all, they made this very important decision on the merits, letting the law go into effect with just a two-paragraph opinion but then deciding to hear a challenge to the law in li lightning fast speed by standards. i don't want to get into the weeds. when the supreme court agrees to hear a case they grant certiorari and within months hear the argument. here they took granted certiorari and set the argument a week later which suggests they

realize the magnitude of the case they're dealing with. >> the "new york times" in their writing of this said maybe there was a justice who had if not a change of heart, felt like he or she needed to hear more about this right away and that person could be brett kavanaugh. >> it could be and that could have happened. i don't know it did happen. if you look at the voting patterns of the justices and the history of the justices, it certainly looks like there are four justices who want to overturn roe v. wade, clarence thomas, neil gorsuch, amy barrett her entire history suggests she'd vote that way. brett kavanaugh has been careful not to express an opinion. susan collins the senator who voted for him from maine she said "he believes in precedent. i believe he will not overturn roe v. wade." he allowed the texas law to go

into effect, which suggests a hostility to abortion rights. he seems like the only hope for roe v. wade to survive. >> whatever happens in texas, the mississippi case is a forward challenge to roe. >> what makes today's argument a little weird it is mostly it seems about the procedural aspect of who has the right to challenge the law, not about the law ititself. the mississippi case is a 15-week abortion ban, that will be heard december 1st and that will really decide the fate of roe v. wade even if the texas case doesn't. >> where can we watch the arguments on tv? are you listening? >> nowhere. there nor cameras in the supreme court. however, there is live video, go to supremecourt.gov, it's not satisfactory to you and to me, but it's certainly better than it used to be where you couldn't listen to live audio the aul aat

all. >> can i talk to him about john eastman? john eastman was the guy who wrote the blueprint for how mike pence could overturn the election on january 6th that mike pence did not follow on january 6th, he is the president's lawyer or at the center of a lot of what happened on the insurrection. he gave an interview to steve bannon on january 2nd, four days before the insurrection, that's revealing. let's listen. >> is there an alternative way you see the power through this using either the electoral control act or some decision that made that the vice president of the united states grows a spine and understands his constitutional duty as you interpret it, mr. eastman? >> those slates of selectors are invalid. those states would at least agree because the ongoing contests have not been resolved, we can't count those electors.
5:51 am
>> what do you think of that? >> it's shameful. he in recent weeks has gone back, eastman said well i wasn't saying the election should be overturned. he couldn't have been clearer in that interview that he was saying the vice president should not have certified the vote and what he said in that statement was a lie. there was no contest about those electors. the electors were awarded by the states and just shows how close we came to a constitutional crisis the likes of which this country has never seen if his argument prevailed with vice president pence. >> jeffrey toobin thank you very much. >> all righty, berman. >> brianna? >> here is what else to watch today. >>
