tv   New Day With John Berman and Brianna Keilar  CNN  November 9, 2021 2:59am-4:00am PST

2:59 am
*door unlocks* ♪ ♪ well, i can bust curfew-breakers in an instant. well, you all have xfinity home, with cameras to home security monitored by the pros. *laughs* learn more about home security or get our self-monitored solution starting at just $10 per month. good morning. i'm brianna keilar with john berman on this new day. a new round of subpoenas targeting former allies in president trump's orbit who the january 6th committee wants to hear from this time. and the investigation into the deadly astroworld concert is turning to toxicology and the possible role of illegal drugs.
3:00 am
reunited and it feels so good. many families celebrating this morning after emotional reunions nearly two years in the making. and astronauts made their long journey back home, but why on earth were they wearing diapers? ♪ good morning to our viewers here in the united states and around the world. it is tuesday, november 9th. the house committee investigating the january 6th attack on the capitol issuing new subpoenas to trump allies. all six targets top members of trump's re-election campaign who helped spread the big lie that fueled the capitol insurrection. they include trump 2020 campaign manager william stepien. former cam tapaign adviser, jas
3:01 am
miller. the trump campaign's national executive assistant. and former new york city police commissioner and ex-felon, who worked with rudy giuliani to investigate voter fraud that never existed. also subpoenaed, john eastman, a trump lawyer who crafted a plan for using vice president mike pence to invalidate the election results. >> and all we are demanding of vice president pence is this afternoon at 1:00 he let the legislatures of the state look into this so we can get to the bottom of it, and the american people know whether we have control of the direction of our government or not. >> finally, there's michael flynn, trump's former national security adviser who discussed invoking martial law after the election. >> if he wanted to, he could take military capabilities and place them in the states and basically re-run an election.
3:02 am
>> so these people have beenish s -- been issued subpoenas, but will they comply. you might wonder if compliance is optional, as the justice department has yet to decide whether to prosecute steve bannon for publicly, brazenly refusing to testify. merrick garland and the department haven't determined whether to charge him with criminal contempt. joining me, washington correspondent for the "new york times" maggie haberman and former prosecutor jeremy toobin. maggie, subpoenas tos out to si people, many whom were at the willard hotel, this historic hotel near the white house, where there was a lot of discussion about how to overturn the election. >> of the six subpoenas, i don't think the willard meeting ties to it. it is one or two other people, but mostly, these were people in varying stages of being around trump starting after november
3:03 am
3rd. his former campaign manager is one. john eastman we talked about a lot. mike flynn was in this meeting on december 18th at the white house, accompanied by sydney powell, who was working in some capacity president trump campaign as a lawyer at that point, of the apparatuses seizing the voting machines and rerunning the election. you're deal winning a broad group of people. it's not tied to one event. there were many different prongs. this wasn't just a meeting the night before january 6th. they'd hit a benchmark, and a deadline would pass. they'd move to another thing. trump had various irons and fires and one of the people who knew what was going on. >> one thing they have in common is none of them worked for the government at the time. legally, as i understand it, none of them have a remote claim to refuse to testify under executive privilege. but they can delay things in
3:04 am
court if they want to tie things up. that's what this goal seems to be here. and you have the simultaneous situation of the justice department dithering on steve bannon. you know, steve bannon, the house voted for him in contempt on october 21st. the justice department has done nothing. the message to these six is, well, you know, the justice department not going to rush to prosecute you, so why bother to comply with the subpoena? that's the real problem. >> mr. jason miller, what incentive do you have to do anything until the justice department decides what to do with steve bannon? >> even if they prosecute steve pan non, it is likely to be a multi-month process with legal proceedings that will go to the district court, potentially the supreme court. so the options for delay here, even if they decide to -- the justice department finally gets its act together and prosecutes
3:05 am
people, the options for delay can go for months and months. i think the odds of them actually testifying are remote. >> there are some people who are actually doing some form of dealing with the committee. people were subpoenaed and did not claim they were protected by executive privilege. i don't know all these folks are going to do this. it depends, in some cases, how many legal fees they want to incur on their own. i don't think they're getting blanket coverage from the trump folks. >> can we talk more about michael flynn? >> sure. >> as you said, it was part of your reporting that he discussed seizing ballot boxes. he discuss ed the possibility o martial law here. he plays an interesting role in american history over the last few years. >> no question. look, it begins with, he gets fired as national security adviser for several reasons, one is that trump has already begun getting sick with him which gets overlooked. trump was upset he hired his son. there were all these reasons. then there was the issue of his talking to the russian ambassador, which white house officials all said that he was
3:06 am
not truthful about, pboth with the vp and other officials there. this leads to the investigation. he then became a hero in the eyes of maga because he pleaded guilty, and jeffrey might know more about this, but he pleaded guilty then tried to undo it, not cooperate it, and he got pardoned. so now he has become a hero to these folk it is, and he was a key voice in trump's ear. i don't think trump likes or respects mike flynn, but he is happy if somebody is going to do something on his behalf. >> he's in the room talk about martial law. >> right. he is in public talking about martial law. the words "marshtial law" was never said in the oval office. he was talking about the government interfering in the election. he was talking about it with a wide group of people. >> chances we hear from michael flynn? >> close to zero. he is, with bernie carrick, the
3:07 am
truest of the true believers in the group. the problem with this entire january 6th committee here -- investigation, is that the tools the committee has to force reluctant witnesses, if they exist at all, are likely to take months and months, which the committee doesn't have. >> maggie, overnight on twitter, i noticed you were doing some reporting on a speech that the former president was giving to the nrcc in tampa. >> tampa. >> there was a lot in there. >> yeah. there was. so it's really funny, i was getting messages from folks in the room who said, oh, he's on message. he's not talking about january 6th or november 3rd. than he got there eventually. he started talking about glenn youngkin, the incoming governor of virginia, who kept trump at a very noticeable arm's length in the final weeks of that race. most youngkinfolks tfolks think made him win, he wasn't hugging
3:08 am
trump. trump, bhowho makes everything about himself, was insisting, you can rely on me. then he was railing folks who voted for biden's agenda. then he talked about november 3rd and january 6th. he said the quote, unquote, real election was november 3rd. he is saying this to a room full of lawmakers who were at the capitol when this riot took place, many hiding or concerned for their safety. there was some applause in the room. that tells you everything about where the party is, his hold on it, and his willingness to keep saying things that are not true but are all about himself. we're over a year since the election, and he has continued to make it all about him. >> just review, cheers when he said the real insurrection was november 3rd. >> from some. it wasn't a rally crowd but yes. >> also, glenn youngkin would not have won without him.
3:09 am
>> would have lost badly, and glenn knows that. something like that. which is not true based on the polli ing polling. but he'll keep with that message pause the fear is that youngkin is right. if you distance yourself from trump, that you can actually do okay. so trump, i think, is trying very hard to convince people the other thing is not true. >> let's end then on this theme if we will. this gets into a different argument that he's been having now publicly with chris christie. chris christie, i think we have the tape, said this out loud. let's listen. >> we can no longer talk about the past and the past elections. no matter where you stand on that issue, no matter where you stand, it is over. >> then former presi er presidet a statement. chris christie who just made a speech was just absolutely massacred by his statements that republicans have to move on from
3:10 am
the past. everybody remembers that chris left new jersey with less than 9% approval rating, a record low, and they didn't want to hear this from him. jeffrey toobin, student of humanity, what does this tell you? >> as maggie said, it's always about him. youngkin won by distancing himself from trump. whether that model works in more republican districts is, i think, very much an open questionm question. if you look how the republican party seems to be embracing him. chris chriskchristie is a lonele in the party at the moment. that attitude is not widely shared in that party. >> he is right. i also think that the cohesion around donald trump did not happen overnight. i think it'll take not just christie but probably other voices saying it as well. see if others join him. about that statement, the thing that is -- christie didn't have 9% approval rating.
3:11 am
it was low, but it was not 9%. it is done to throw a brush back. the more you start seeing people, if we start seeing people, not reacting to that, not being brush ed back, that's the only way republicans move away from trump. >> we're here again, a time of choosing. now we will see how people react. jeffrey toobin, maggie haberson, thank you is -- so much. we're learning more about the astroworld concert. plans did not include a specific contingency for a surging crowd. that is despite three people being trampled and hospitalized at the same festival back in 2019. in the days since the event, scrutiny of travis scott and the festivals organizers has mounted. at least 18 lawsuits have begun piling up. in scott's netflix documentary, a showman j manager describes h difficult it is to control the crowds at his events. >> kids push up against the
3:12 am
front and spread all the way across to fill in the front floor. the pressure becomes great up against the barricade. you'll see crowd surfers and kids just trying to get out and get to safety because they can't breathe. you don't know how bad it can be. >> before scott look the stage, houston's police chief says that he had a meeting with scott to discuss his concerns. he tells cnn that scott had a responsibility for the safety of the crowd at his festival. >> everybody there that was providing security, including the performer, they have certain responsibilities. they have a vantage point that most people do not. the concert was so loud, jake, that even, you know, a mile down the street, you can hear the music. so the communication there, it's very difficult. but there were certainly indications and reports of people approaching the promoters, the security that was
3:13 am
there, and letting them know there was an issue. at one point, even mr. scott noticed, i believe, an ambulance in the crowd. so there was something going on. i truly believe, you know, that at some point, if the lights would have been turned on, the promoter or the artist called for that, it would have chilled the crowd. who knows? who knows what the outcome would have been. >> all eight of the victims who were killed in the disaster have been publicly identified. scott has vowed to cover their funeral expenses. scores of other concert-goers i 9-year-old who is in a medically-induced coma to combat brain trauma. the "wall street journal" reports that police are looking at whether a batch of counterfeit pills possibly laced with fentanyl played a role here. coming up on "new day," we'll be speaking to the family of one of the concert victims who died

here in a few hours, testimony resumes in the trial of three men accused in the killing of black jogger ahmaud arbery. in court on monday, jurors heard from the first police officer who responded to the scene and saw graphic photos and video of the fatal shooting. cnn's ryan young is live for us in brunswick, georgia. it was an emotional day, another one, ryan. >> reporter: yeah. good morning, brianna. that testimony lasted for more than five hours with that first officer who arrived on scene. a lot of questions about his actions when he arrived there. there was also a conversation, especially about the body cam
3:28 am
video, between him and william roddy bryan, about what happened before the shooting. he admitted they tried to stop ahmaud arbery five times before the shooting happened. on february 23rd, 2020, former glen county police officer rir responded to a suspicious call. he was the first on scene. >> i hear two loud pop sounds within a couple seconds apart. >> reporter: he took the stand monday and told jurors he saw two white men and a black man with a gunshot wound. one of the white men was william roddy jr. minshew testified about what bryan told him that day. >> how many times did he say he blocked ahmaud or cornered him?
3:29 am
>> after reviewing the body camera, it aprocedureppeared to times. >> did he say he saw ahmaud commit a crime, to the point where bryan decided to leave his house? >> no, did not report anything to me. >> did bryan say he was trying to make a citizen's arrest of ahmaud? >> no, ma'am. >> reporter: minshew also testified that bryan told him he never said anything while he was being chased. >> did bryan ever say ahmaud made any verbal threats toward him during this time, when he was being chase snd. >> no. he never heard him say anything. >> any verbal threats toward anybody at all? >> no, ma'am. >> reporter: appearing on cnn's "cuomo primetime," arbery's mother said she'd wanted to know what happened in his last minutes. >> it's very heartbreaking, knowing that ahmaud had, like i said from the very beginning, that he ran. i didn't realize he had ran so long.
3:30 am
hearing the testimony from the last couple days, you know, is reassuring that ahmaud actually ran for his life. >> reporter: inside the court, the defense team tried to show inconsistencies from the former officer's statement. >> in your police report summarizing the conversation you've been testifying to today, how many times did you report that mr. bryan blocked mr. arbery? >> none. >> reporter: another witness taking the stand on monday was sergeant sheila ramos, a crime scene investigator with the county. sergeant ramos identified unsettling images she took of ahmaud's body after he was shot and killed. >> this is a mid-range of the gunshot wound underneath his arm to his shoulder. >> reporter: ramos also testified that fingerprints were not recovered from the weapon on the scene because the shotgun was deemed ed biohazard covere blood. as the arbery family left the
3:31 am
court, their attorney struck an optimistic tone. >> the evidence continues to give us confidence that these defendants will be found guilty, held accountable. >> reporter: prixone of the thi that stuck out to us watching this was the reaction by arbery's mother, especially after they talked about the first officer responding, not really doing anything to help him when he was on the ground. there's a lot of conversation about that, especially with the officer saying he feared for his life. he wanted to make sure the scene was secure first. there are questions about how long it tokok to render aid. court begins today at 9:00. another officer will testify. more body cam video will be admitted. we'll see some of the procedures that took place. this is all about the background of the investigation comeing up how things got standrted after e
3:32 am
shot. >> joining me is judge hatchet, founder of the hatchet firm and host of the "verdict," and also host of "the law and crime network." the prosecution got a lot of details into evidence yesterday, including that there were no reports that ahmaud arbery said anything as he was being chased. he was chased and chased and chased. the defendants never reported seeing a crime committed by arbery. they never reported making a citizens arrest there. why is all this important? >> right. very important. the prosecution had a, in my opinion, a great day yesterday. very interestingly, as a matter of background, georgia actually repealed the citizens right to make a citizens arrest back in may of this year. but before that, the statute basically said that you can make an arrest if you have immediate knowledge that a crime was committed. none of that has happened in this case. and so the defense is hanging on
3:33 am
the point of it being a citizens arrest and them having acted in self-defense. those defenses are very, very thin, in my opinion. and so the fact that this truck blocked arbery for five different times, that he literally was running for his life, i think is going to be very, very compelling. coupled with the second -- ramos' testimony and those graphic, graphic pictures of literally his chest being blown apart by a shotgun. >> robert, if you were in the jury, what do you think landed h hardest yesterday? >> i think what is most important as a former homicide prosecutor is that it became very clear that there was not a crime being committed for which they had a right under the georgia law as it existed at the time to even be pursuing him anyway. the second thing i think is most
3:34 am
compelling is, as a person who presented homicide evidence to juries for many years, it is literally hunting a man don. a guy who is running for his life. the visceral reaction of that demonstrable evidence to a jury is going to be very compelling, that he is trying to flee. there's three against one. they come out with a shotgun at the end of it. i mean, literally, to me, it looked as if a man is being hunted literally for no reason, other than -- even if they have the argument that they thought maybe he suspiciously was involved in something, i don't think the jurors will buy it. when they see him lying in a puddle of blood on the ground, this is a prosecutor's dream in terms of demonstrative evidence. the beauty of it is it was a self-inflicted wound, the taking of the video by one of the defendants themselves. to me, the impact of this is really extraordinary. lastly as a prosecutor, i'm
3:35 am
thinking, is the defense scoring points in any way, shape, or form that i have to clean up? when i was covering this case yesterday, i was saying to myself and guests, i don't understand where the defense is going with the cross-examination of these police officers. i think it was a great day for the prosecution in this case, on an emotional and legal level. >> judge, what about the defense case? >> well, i think it is going to be interesting. you note that one of the defendants, in fact, the one who took the video, his attorney has reserved opening. so the other -- the prosecution and the attorneys for the father and the son have done their opening argument. the strategy seems to me that he is waiting to see what the state evidence will be before he makes the argument. and i don't know that that is a great strategy at all in this case. because they have heard from the other side. they have not heard from him. at the end of the day, i think the defense of self-defense is
3:36 am
just absolutely ludicrous, frankly. when you have three men there, they're literally hunting him down. he is running for his life. then you're going to say somehow that this was a citizens arrest, but, yet, the first officer on the scene testified very clearly that they didn't talk about a citizens arrest at the time. i think that came up as part of the defense strategy afterwards. i think the defense has a tough, tough situation. although, obviously, we know the burden of proof is on the state. but i am really -- i don't know where they're going to go when it is time for them to try to defend this case. i don't. i don't understand that. >> judge, robert, don't go far. we want to talk again about this trial also deeply fascinating happening in kenosha, wisconsin. see you shortly. >> i'll be right here. thank you. >> okay. so you can't tell by looking at these smiling faces, but
3:37 am

four astronauts splashing down off the coast of florida and their spacex drew capsule after six months in space. this wasn't the most comfortable ride because their capsule's broken toilet left them relying on diapers for the nine-hour trip home. cnn's kristin fisher joining me. we're reporters. nine hours, no problem. >> you learn how to hold it, right? nasa would never call these diapers. >> that's right. >> they're calling them undergarments. the astronaut on board described the situation as sub-optimal. very nasa astronaut speak, right? the bottom line is, the toilets on board the spacex crew capsule were out of order for this nine-hour trip back to earth. spacex realized there had been an issue on one of the other capsules, so they decided to say, let's take it extra safe and cautious.
3:44 am
you put on these diapers for the trip back home. these are high grade, astronaut grade diapers, built into the space suit. this is also something that nasa astronauts train for. i mean, they are trained to get comfortable with being very uncomfortable. this crew really had to deal with quite a few challenges during their six-month stay in orbit. this crew had to deal with that space station inadvertently being spinning slowly out of control due to those thrusters firing on a russian module. that happened twice. one w this is the crew that also had to deal with a close call with space debris. they had to jump into space suits because they thought space debris could hit the space station while on board. that did not happen. it was a false alarm. still tha still, they really had to deal with quite a few things. during splashdown, one of the capsule's four main parachutes did not deploy fully fast

waving a gun as the pastor is praying with several people kneeling on the floor. the pastor sneaks around the side without the gunman noticing, and tackles him from behind before shots are fired. one of the church-goers said everyone stayed remarkably calm. >> no one was panicking. they were calm, seeing what was going on. that's when one of the pastors -- i would say god used him, you know? he went around like he was about to go off side, and the guy with a gun wasn't paying attention to him. he went around, and that's when he ran and jump on top of him. >> several members helped the pastor hold the man until officers arrived. he is not a member of the church but sometimes attends. he is in jail, charged with multiple counts of aggravated assault. glad that everyone whoo was thee is okay. like a good neighbor, state farm is there, sort of but maybe

this morning, state farm, the insurance giant, is publicly standing by green bay packers quarterback aaron rodgers, calling him a great ambassador after he came under fire for seemingly misleading people that he'd been vaccinated against covid. despite their backing of rodgers, state farm is cutting back on his television ads in a huge way. look at this. only 1.5% of their ads on sunday featured rodgers, compared to
3:52 am
20% two weekends ago. clearly, they're cutting way, way back. joining us now, marketing consultant peter shankman. state farm is saying one thing, that they're standing by rodgers, but doing another, running away. >> they have their executive team trying to have the cake and eat it too. they can't say everything is fine because, let's face it, rodgers lied. he said one thing, and it was entirely a different thing. the problem is that he is still beloved by millions of people. they have a huge contract with him. he technically, if it ever went to court, he didn't violate a morality clause or anything like that probably. they're not about to dump him immediately. 1.5% from 22% is a huge number. >> yeah. look -- >> huge number. >> if you watch football on the weekends, which i do a lot of, he's their main guy, all over their commercials. >> it is -- again, the problem is that he could have come out and said, you know what, i don't know about the vaccine yet and

i'm begingoing to take the prot necessary mandated by the nfl, and there wouldn't be a problem. the fact he did it the way he did it, doubling down by claiming his scientific knowledge comes from joe rogan, right? he is hurting himself in that regard. in the end, state farm way have to walk away. they're hedging their bets. they might walk away. >> they're supportive of vaccines, but they also said personal choice. >> you can't have it both ways. you can't say, you know, if you look at other nfl superstars who have fallen by the wayside or come by cancel culture, they didn't put millions of people at potential risk. there's a question of, is this going to be okay? as the story continues to grow over the next 48 hours, state farm might have to re-evaluate, as other sponsors that he currently has are doing. other sponsors left him already. >> is it possible you can keep him at arm's length, not come out with another statement but stop running the commercials? >> it is possible. we live in a short attention span theater world.

every year it seems to get shorter. paula dean, duck dynasty, they canceled. you've never hard from them again. it is harder to get cancelled in that regard. we might forget about it, but if the story continues to have legs, memes are coming out, people are saying they want to leave state farm because of this, that is a huge alabatross around your neck. >> if they stop running the commercials, is a public statement required? they're talking with dollars. >> it'll be a question of are people leaving. people will tweet about how they're leaving but are they actually going to do it? that remains to be seen. this is a huge contract, millions of dollars. they might not want to spend the rest of the money if it brings that trouble. >> calling him a great ambassador, clearly he wasn't because they didn't run the ads. peter, thank you. this morning, why a man who took part in the january 6th riot and is wanted by the fbi is
