tv   Early Start With Christine Romans and Laura Jarrett  CNN  November 10, 2021 2:00am-2:59am PST

2:00 am
to build a future of unlimited possibilities. good morning, everyone. it's wednesday, november 10th. it's 5:00 a.m. here in new york. thanks so much for getting an early start with me. i'm laura jarrett. christine is off today. welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world. we begin with break being news. a fed lral judge will not keep president trump's documents
2:01 am
secret. it is outweighed by the current president and getting to the bottom of the attack on the capitol. in a 40-page ruling, presidents are not kings and plaintiff is not president. closely guarded secrets could be in the committee's hands within days. cnn's ryan nobles starts us off this morning. >> reporter: good morning. no doubt this is a big win for the january 6 select committee. a federal judge saying they may have access to hundreds of documents from the trump administration around the time of the january 6 insurrection. this includes communications in the white house, visitor logs, call logs, also handwritten notes by the former president himself that the committee believes is a central part of their investigation. in her ruling, the judge in this case weighing the balance between executive privilege and the public interest. and she says that in this particular case it is the public
2:02 am
interest that wins out writing, quote, the court holds that the public interest lies in permitting, not enjoining the combined will of legislative and executive branches to study events that occurred january 6 and prevent such events from ever occurring again. now, the committee chairman bennie thompson, was actually in an interview with cnn at the time that this ruling came down, and this is how he responded. >> well, it's a big deal. we have a lot of information we have requested. now based on a judge, judge's decision that donald trump brought the lawsuit, we fought him in court. we have the law on our side. and, you know, we are a nation of laws, so if you take your issue to court and lose, then you need to man up and deal with it and not be a spoiled brat.
2:03 am
>> reporter: the chairman making it clear that it is a big deal. and also to a certain extent daring the former president not to file an appeal in this case, but his legal team has already weighed in saying they plan to file an appeal. the question is will that appeal play itself out in time for the release of the documents which could happen as soon as this friday. it is unlikely that an appellate court will make a decision, but could they weigh in with some sort of injunction or stay to prevent the release of those documents while the appellate process plays out. that's something we're going to have to wait and see. at this point the committee feels that they are in a strong position to get that information and get it as soon as possible. >> thank you for that. let's dig in here. three questions in three minutes, here to help me is former federal prosecutor michael zeldin, host of the podcast, that said with michael zeldin. michael, good morning. first i want to get your reaction to last night's ruling from the judge. >> i think it was anticipated
2:04 am
this would be the ruling. former president nixon tried the same thing when he attempted to withhold from congress and the judiciary his incriminating information in the watergate case, and he lost. and so it was pretty clear that with the presidential records act and the precedent trump would lose and he did. >> he did engage in that careful balancing as you mentioned in sort of the nixon era cases where he's not saying that the former president doesn't have any interest here. it's just that those interests are outweighs by the current executive and, of course, congress's prerogatives here. this week we've seen two different batches of subpoenas from house investigators. on the one hand you have this batch that is focused on efforts to stop the vote count, the stop the steal. but then yesterday's subpoenas go deep inside the white house. a bunch of white house staffers, and they seem to be get being at more of what trump was doing and saying around january 6. i wonder, michael, what does
2:05 am
this tell you about the larger picture of where this committee is going with their investigation. >> well, it seems, laura, that they have three prongs. one is the rioters themselves and what they were doing. second is the lead up to the events, who funded it, who orchestrated it, who spoke to whom about it. and then finally, and what we see in these last subpoenas, is what was trump and his advisers doing in the white house during this critical 2 1/2 hour period when the riot was ongoing. and that's what we see most interestingly in this new batch of subpoenas. >> although there are people who actually worked in the white house arguably would have a better claim, if there is any claim to executive privilege than people like jason miller who were not even in the white house at the time. in this latest batch there are familiar names. people like kayleigh mcany.
2:06 am
people we haven't heard of interest you most in ways. tell me about that. >> right. there are two people, keith kellogg and cassidy hutchinson. both were in the white house during the events. one was pence's national security adviser, one was legislative affairs assistant to trump. and they were there watching trump's actions and inactions. and i think they will, therefore, have important testimony, and testimony that could box in mark meadows who also was there and who has not yet agreed to testify. they're boxing around what he'll say, what the scope of that deposition will be. also ken klutowski, who was special counsel to assistant attorney general jeffrey clark. remember, clark was subpoenaed. he refused to testify. he is the one who theoretically was hatching a plan to get rid of a.g. rosen so he could step in, announce there was fraud,
2:07 am
and give credence to the trump stop the steal. so those three are of particular interest to me. >> i should also mention all these subpoenas are not happening in a vacuum. this committee is moving forward with its investigation despite radio silence from the justice department on the prosecution of >> st steve bannon. he defied the committee's subpoena. now they expect cooperation from these folks. >> that's right. and, laura, if i could add one thing, we talked yesterday about whether merrick garland would wait until there was decision from the court to decide whether to go forward with the bannon case. >> right. >> now that the case has been resolved and there is no executive privilege, if bannon continues to refuse, then he really is in a contemptuous position and it makes it much e easier for garland to move forward. >> great point. michael zeldin, always great to have you, my friend. thank you. >> thank you. more legal news here. oklahoma supreme court reversing

2:13 am
president biden is in baltimore today trying to keep the focus on the economy which is improving, but americans are just not feeling it. mostly because of inflation. gas prices are at a seven-year high. the cost of thanksgiving is about to soar. and cnn has also learned that burgers, hot dogs and deli meats will soon cost more. daniela diaz joins us from capitol hill. daniela, good morning. how is the president using lessons to learn from tough losses in places like virginia to now push forward on his social safety net package? >> reporter: it really appears, laura, that president joe biden and the white house are listening to america's struggles, what americans are feeling and in terms of inflation, rising gas prices, the rising cost of groceries, things that are really affecting america's pocket books. this is why he is putting renewed pressure on congress to pass the second part of his infrastructure legislation which is the economic bill that would
2:14 am
expand the nation's social safety net, do things such as combat climate change, have paid leave, if that ends up staying in the senate version of this bill, these are things that could help americans and help them relieve some of the pressure they're facing because of rising prices in this country. biden is recognizing that many american families are struggling, especially after they lost this race in virginia as a result of this. and this is why he's pitutting renewed pressure on this. he is starting his sales pitch today in baltimore on the second bipartisan infrastructure bill that passed congress last week. he still hasn't signed, but they are working on implementing funding from this to actually help with transportation in this country and supply chain issues, another issue that we're facing ahead of the holidays. of course, i talked go how this economic bill would combat climate crisis, improve public transit and alleviate some of those supply chain issues
2:15 am
americans are facing. take a listen to what president joe biden said yesterday in a virtual town hall about what americans are facing right now with these issues. >> i know a lot of folks don't feel the progress we're making to the economy. i get it. i know the coast of gas, groceries and rent seems to be harder and harder to handle. for four years long, four years old long, the last president told us we were going to get the infrastructure done. but they couldn't get it done. so it was left to us, and we got the job done. and now we need to do it again with my build back better plan. and i'm confident we're going to get it done. >> reporter: ahead of his visit to baltimore today where he plans to tout this bipartisan infrastructure bill that passed congress last week, the white house announced a new set of immediate and short-term actions that would have effects in
2:16 am
alleviating some of the supply chain issues that the nation -- at the nation's ports, waterways and networks. as they are taking steps to address this issue. another thing president biden is doing, he spoke with the c.e.o.s of four major u.s. companies including walmart, u.p.s. and target. these are major companies that he -- he's doing this on purpose. these are companies that have an effect on supply chain issues, especially ahead of the holidays, and that is why he met with them to discuss these problems. but the bottom line here is americans are feeling the real effects of this and that is why the white house, the biden administration is really putting pressure on congress to pass the second legislation of his domestic agenda. laura? >> all right, daniela diaz, thank you for staying on top of all this as always. so, while the president is looking forward, he is also scolding house republicans for considering retaliation against 13 gop members who voted for his
2:17 am
bipartisan infrastructure bill. as daniela mentioned last week, some conservative lawmakers have discussed stripping those colleagues of their committee assignments for this. the president condemning that approach for playing into this growing partisan divide. >> i'm hoping we can get back to a place where there is more civility in politics. i really mean it. and i've never seen it this way. it's got to stop for the sake of america. i know i get in trouble when i talk about bipartisan. people say why in the devil do i like any republicans. well, it's important. unless we get a consensus in america, we're in trouble. >> the president talking there about civility. that is clearly an uphill fight. in the last few days we heard the threatening tirade left for michigan congressman upton, one of the 13 gop members who voted for the bill. and paul gosar, a fierce
2:18 am
defender of the president who engages conspiracy theories himself, he posted this anime on social media that depicts him killing alexandria ocasio-cortez and killing president biden. gosar's own sister horrified. >> i wonder does he have to act on it himself before we believe he is a sociopath? no one -- no one holds him accountable. >> republican leaders in the house have said nothing in response. and gosar, not one to back down, instead now gaslighting, telling people to relax because the anime video was not meant to depict any harm or violence against anyone. coming up for you, a massive communications failure. no cell phone service, no open lines between emergency responders at astroworld. more new details at the deadly

and present, can continue to get the tools they need to build a future of unlimited possibilities. new signs this morning of a communications break down at the houston music festival that left eight people dead over the weekend. houston fire chief now says that firefighters outside the venue didn't have radio contact with third-party medical crews hired by concert organizers. they only had cell phone numbers. now, no comment yet from that third-party group, but some members wouldn't have helped much. one person at the concert told the houston city council, cell service wasn't even working there. >> there was also no phone reception while i was trying to

2:31 am
planning of the meeting says specific details have not been ironed out yet, but plenty on the table to discuss, including china's military aggression against tie huang, its recent testing of hypersonic missiles, the climate crisis and space race could also be on the table. all right. to covid now. as many kids are rolling up their sleeves for a shot before thanksgiving with grandma, another high-profile celebrity is casting some doubt on vaccines really for kids. actor and potential candidate for texas governor matthew mcconaughey says while he has taken the vaccine, he's taking a bet before getting his younger children their shots. >> i want to trust in the science. i think that there's any kind of scam or conspiracy theory, hell no, i don't. i'm not vaccinating mine, i'll tell you that. >> you're not? >> i'm not vaccinating mine. i've been vaccinated. my wife has been vaccinated. we have a high-risk person in our household, my mother, she is 90. she's immune compromised.
2:32 am
i couldn't mandate having to vaccinate the younger kids. i still want to find out more information. >> and the truth is mcconaughey is not alone here. some parents say kids on average tend not to get seriously ill if they happen to get covid, so the argument is let's just wait it out. but the reality is after weeks of declines in cases, cases in children have risen 6% in the last week. the longer this virus circulates uncontrolled, the more likely it is another variant emerges, one that may actually stand up to our vaccines. here's the surgeon jen on this. -- surgeon general on this. >> covid is not harmless in children. they have died, hundreds of thousands have been hospitalized. as a dad of a child ho who has been hospitalized for another disease, i wouldn't wish it on any child to end up in the hospital. >> schools are suffering from their own form of what you might call long haul covid and shutting their doors. seattle public schools will be
2:33 am
closed friday and public schools in denver will shift to remote learning for at least two days this week. both due to staffing shortages. >> teachers, educators, there's nowhere else that we want to be than in the classrooms with our students. but we are also so exhausted right now because so much has been added to our plate and nothing has been removed. >> there is a growing trend away from masking in schools across the south here defying cdc guidelines. miami dade and broward county, two of the biggest school districts in the country are no longer required to wear masks. texas schools aren't allowed to require masks although some districts have ignored that rule. all of this is part of why the biden administration says the time is now to make such an aggressive push to boost the number of vaccination sites for children. testimony is set to resume in just a's few hours in the trial of three men in georgia accused of killing ahmaud arbery. prosecutors have tried to undercut this defense argument
2:34 am
about why the defendants chased this you think armed black jogger in the first place. cnn's martin savage is on the ground in brunswick, georgia, for us. >> reporter: good morning, laura. for a third straight day the prosecution continued to hammer at one of the basic pillers of the defense, and that is that all three defendants, their attorneys say, were actually trying to conduct what is a citizen's arrest under the old georgia law. however, on the witness stand on tuesday, who we heard from was actually the first police officer on the scene who got to interview gregory mcmichael, and the point that the prosecution, linda de la kowskyi made, did gregory mcmichael say they were trying to conduct a citizen's arrest? here's that exchange. >> did he ever tell you while you were talking to him he was attempting to make a citizen's arrest? >> no ma'am. p >> did he ever use the word
2:35 am
arrest? >> no, ma'am. >> what did he say was the reason he got his gun? >> don't know if he was armed because the man stuck his hands in his pants. >> okay. and what did he say about that at the end of line 24 and 25? >> i don't take any chances. >> so what we have heard now over the past two days is three law enforcement officers talking to the defendants in this case, and at no time did those defendants ever say to law enforcement they were trying to conduct a citizen's arrest. meanwhile, the defense is pushing back and saying, what really matters here is what was in the minds of the three men when they gave pursuit of ahmaud arbery, and they will say the men were thinking that ahmaud arbery had done something criminally wrong and that it was their duty to protect their neighborhood by pursuing him. laura? >> thank you for that. the trial of kyle rittenhouse, that young man charged with shooting three people during protests last year
2:36 am
in kenosha, wisconsin, is moving fast. the defense team is doing their able best to poke holes in various witness testimony. things got heated during cross-examine yesterday of a freelance journalist. he left out a key detail when he first spoke to police about rittenhouse shooting a paramedic. >> he had his firearm out, pointing at kyle. >> and as the gun is pointing at kyle, what happened? >> kyle shot mr. grosskreitz. >> you saw mr. grosskreitz point his gun at mr. rittenhouse? >> yes. >> that's nowhere in your statement. >> correct. >> that wasn't important to include september 11th? >> like i said, i'm not a detective. >> a chance rittenhouse could take the stand as soon as today. cnn's omar jimenez is in kenosha. >> reporter: good morning. we are now headed into a 7th day
2:37 am
of testimony in this trial, and the second day for the defense. in total, the prosecution called 22 witnesses, and a large focus at the end of its case really centered on the moments around the killing of joseph rosenbaum. he was the first of two people shot and killed by kyle rittenhouse back in august of 2020. rosenbaum was shot four times, once in the left thigh, once in the hand. he suffered a graze wound to his head, and was shot in the back. the lethal shot. the prosecution focused on when rittenhouse fired his weapon and from what position. take a -- >> is it your opinion to a reasonable degree of medical certainty that the back to front shots to the head and then the kill shot to the back would have been while he was falling or perpendicular to the ground? >> the only way that the trajectories of the gunshot wounds to the right side of the head and the back make sense is if he's more horizontal to the ground, and that is occurring at
2:38 am
the time that the last two gunshot wounds are heard on the video. >> reporter: now, the defense underscored that all four shots of that deadly interaction happened in less than a second, and that if rosenbaum was charging like a bull, to use the defense attorney's words, that downward bullet trajectory could still be possible. now, the doctor's testimony came with graphic pictures that were shown throughout trial on tuesday, and kyle rittenhouse at many times had to avert his eyes, visibly shaken by what was being shown as did many jurors. after the prosecution wrapped its case, the judge issued a decision to drop charge number 7 against kyle rittenhouse as the curfew citation charge. rules that the prosecution didn't show enough evidence that a curfew was actually in effect back on this night in august of 2020. rittenhouse, though, still faces five felony charges that include murder and reckless homicide along with the misdemeanor of

being a minor with a weapon. he's pleaded not guilty to all of those. laura? >> omar, thank you for being there for us. now to a potentially devastating life changing mix up at a fertility clinic. a southern california couple has filed a lawsuit claiming that the clinic implanted the wrong embryos during in havitro fertilization. they trusted the center for reproductive health and their doctor to help them after years of trying for a second child with no luck. they successfully went through ivf, but once the couple's baby was born, they knew something wasn't right. the dna test later proved the child she birthed was not related to her and not related to her husband. they had to switch babies with the couple who had their biological daughter >> losing the birth of the child that you know for the genetic child that you don't even know
2:40 am
yet, it's a truly impossible nightmare. >> instead of breast-feeding my own child, i breast fed and bonded with a child i was later forced to giveaway. >> the story does have a good ending, though. the two couples ultimately agreed the infants would stay with their birth mothers and fathers. we'll be right back. they drove to safelite for a same-day repair. and with their insurance, it was no cost to them. >> woman: really? >> tech: that's service the way you need it. >> singers: ♪ safelite repair, safelite replace. ♪ bye mom. my helpers abound, i'll need you today. our sleigh is now ready, let's get on our way. a mountain of toys to fulfill many wishes. must be carried across all roads and all bridges. and when everyone is smiling and having their fun i can turn my sleigh north because my job here is done. it's not magic that makes more holiday deliveries to homes in the us than anyone else,

it's the hardworking people of the united states postal service. to be a thriver with metastatic breast cancer means asking for what we want. and need. and we need more time. so, we want kisqali. women are living longer than ever before with kisqali when taken with an aromatase inhibitor or fulvestrant in postmenopausal women with hr+, her2- metastatic breast cancer. kisqali is a pill that's significantly more effective at delaying disease progression versus an aromatase inhibitor or fulvestrant alone. kisqali can cause lung problems, or an abnormal heartbeat, which can lead to death. it can cause serious skin reactions, liver problems, and low white blood cell counts that may result in severe infections. tell your doctor right away if you have new or worsening symptoms, including breathing problems, cough, chest pain, a change in your heartbeat, dizziness, yellowing of the skin or eyes, dark urine, tiredness, loss of appetite, abdomen pain, bleeding, bruising, fever, chills or other symptoms of an infection, a severe or worsening rash, are or plan to become pregnant, or breastfeeding. avoid grapefruit during treatment.

so we might just be the number bone issue on the minds f americans as the holidays approach, gas prices. >> it hits your pocket. i'm just doing my best to drive less. >> i spend like $60 per week. so it's a lot. before it was like 20. >> i would say probably about ten, $15 more, which is significant if you drive long,
2:45 am
long distances. >> it's driving all the prices up on my jobs and everything, you know, along with everything else. >> matt eagle agan joins us liv. what can the president actually do here on gas prices? and what can he not do? >> reporter: well, laura, that's right. u.s. presidents have enormous power, but they can't simply make gas prices go lower. really there are no easy fixes here, but let me run you through some of the options that are being talked about and some of the draw backs for each. first he could get on a horn with opec again. opec has not been doing the president any favors. they have not increased production to the degree that the white house wants. so far energy diplomacy hasn't really worked. two, senate democrats have urged the president to consider banning oil exports. now, experts i'm talking to don't think that's going to work. they think it could backfire
2:46 am
because this is a globally traded commodity. if you limit supply, prices could actually go higher. three, the strategic petroleum reserve. that is the nation's stockpile used during natural disasters, times of war, and there is pressure on biden to consider tapping the s.p.r. again, that's not a long-term fix. it does not fix the underlying issue of not enough supply and soaring demand. there is another idea that maybe he could team up with other countries to release barrels from other reserves, and that could possibly turn up the pressure on opec and also have a little bit of a bigger impact on prices. another idea is that maybe the president could meet with the oil industry. maybe he could cut some red tape and encourage them to pump more oil. but, laura, that's not going to happen because it would undercut his climate agenda. they are colliding right now with economic reality. >> bottom line sounds like he
2:47 am
can't do much, but he's going to feel the heat politically no matter what. matt, i also want to ask you about the next big inflation report card due out today. it kind of excites christine romans and you, i imagine. for everyday people, all they know is they're paying more for stuff and that's why it matters to everyday people the. what are >> congress mists telling you? is it going to go away any time soon or is it here to stay for a bit? >> reporter: laura, unfortunately a lot of people think that this is actually going to get worse before it gets better. and, listen, sticker shock is real. let me run you through some of the items that are getting a lot more expensive over the last 12 months. obviously gasoline, we just talked about that, up 42% over the last 12 months. used cars 24%. bacon beef 24%. shoes, rent. the latest inflation report due out in less than three hours is unfortunately expected to show an acceleration of inflation. prices, consumer prices expected

to be up 5.8% over the last 12 months. that is a pickup from what we saw in september. also it would be the biggest 12-month gain since december of 1990. a little context there. back then george h.w. bush was still in the white house. bill clinton was the governor of arkansas. so it's been a very long time since we've seen an inflation number like that. the irony here, though, prices were falling in early 2020 when the pandemic erupted. used cars, gasoline, hotels, airfare, everything was getting lower. that's because the economy was completely shutdown. now demand is picking up. supply can't keep up. and that is why we've seen prices go um. >> matt, the holidays are just arounded corner and shoppers are seeing something that they don't like, out of stock, you see it everywhere. you're at that big shopping center. i can see the best buy behind you. what are people telling you? you spoke to shoppers. what are they saying? >> reporter: well, laura,
2:49 am
shoppers that i've spoken to this week, they say that they are concerned that some of the things they want may not be in stock. some of them are shifting their strategy. they're going earlier. they're considering different items. some have been forced to trade up to more expensive items. let's play the sound on some of the shoppers i talked to. >> yeah, i'm a bit frustrated that prices are up. i think that so much competition, you would expect them to be lower. so it's quite frustrating with all the money being funneled into free money instead of economy causing inflation and everything. so with that comes higher pay raises for my employees, and higher operating business expenses for my business. so it is quite frustrating, but it is what it is. >> i'm not doing holiday shopping. i'm shopping for the small business i work for. their printer selection is pretty bad. looks like they're getting chip shortage affected by that.
2:50 am
>> reporter: now, the chip shortage, of course, is a big deal because chips go into everything that have an on/off switch. everything from computers, smart phones, to exercise machines. now, best buy for its part says unlike some of its competitors, their inventory situation is getting a little bit better because they've been chartering their own transportation in some cases. best buy said there may be products hard to get including smartphones and bluetooth speakers. online shoppers are also having some issues with out of stock. adobe has this report out showing that out of stock has been up 33% over the last year. 325% from two years ago. laura, big picture, this is going to take sometime to sort out and that means that this holiday shopping season people are going to be seeing higher prices and fewer options. >> fewer deals, fewer coupon codes. not great. matt egan, thank you for being there with us, helpful to get your point. as we're talking about all the shopping, it's the end of an
