tv   Early Start With Christine Romans and Laura Jarrett  CNN  November 11, 2021 2:00am-2:59am PST

2:00 am
see if you can save by switching today. comcast business. powering possibilities. tears, testimony, and a take down from the judge. what it all means in the trial of kyle rittenhouse. americans are paying more, a lot more. how much longer the price spikes could last. and the former president scrambling after a judge ruled again he cannot keep key documents about the attack of the capitol under wraps. it is thursday, november 11th, veteran's day, folks.
2:01 am
it's 5:00 in the morning. thanks for joining us. i'm christine romans. >> welcome back, christine. i'm laura jarrett. we begin with testimony in the trial of kyle rittenhouse. the defense team plans to call several more witnesses today in the teen's murder trial including a doctor and a kenosha police officer. rittenhouse broke down in tears on the stand wednesday describing the moments before he fired his ar-15. he insists he was acting in self-defense and didn't do anything wrong. >> everybody that you shot at that night you intended to kill, correct? >> i didn't intend to kill them. i intended to stop the people who were attacking me. >> by killing them. >> i did what i had to do to stop the person who was attacking me. >> by killing them? >> two of them passed away, but i stopped the threat from attacking me. >> one problem with that testimony, in cross-examination rittenhouse said he knew one of the men he killed was unarmed.
2:02 am
the nation is watching closely toe see the next move from the defense. the prosecution, and a judge whoa made headlines of his own. sarah sidner starts us off this morning from kenosha. >> reporter: christine and laura, kyle rittenhouse took the stand in his own defense on wednesday. it is a rare move in a criminal case to have a defendant in a homicide case, a double homicide case take the stand, but that's exactly what he did. in his own words he explained why he shot and killed two people and wounded another. he got extremely emotional in some of that testimony, talking about what happened when the first person that he ended up shooting and killing approached him. >> my plan is toe ge get out oft situation and go back down sheridan road where the car slot number 2 was. >> and did you get back? were you able to go in a
2:03 am
northerly direction? >> i wasn't. >> describe what happened. >> i -- once i take that step back, i look over my shoulder and mr. rosenbaum -- mr. rosenbaum was now running from my right side, um, and i was cornered from in front of me with mr. zaminsky. and there were -- there were three people right there -- >> take a deep breath, kyle.
2:04 am
>> -- >> reporter: the judge then stopped the case to allow kyle rittenhouse to gather his thoughts and then came back. when kyle rittenhouse returned, he was composed and he talked about and described why and how he ended up shooting the other two people that night, one of whom was killed, anthony huber. we also heard the prosecution go after him. first of all, trying to point out some inconsistencies, and also asking him why he was here after curfew that night, and why he had hold of a firearm, an ar-15 to be exact, that the prosecution says he knew he shouldn't have had. >> so you're telling us that the reason that you wanted dominic to buy you an ar-15 as opposed to a pistol, the only reason was because you you felt you couldn't lawfully possess a
2:05 am
pistol? >> correct. >> you didn't pick out the ar-15 for any other reason? >> i thought it looked cool, but no. >> you didn't pick it out because you wanted to go hunting with it, did you? >> no. >> you didn't pick it out because you were going to use it to protect your house, correct? >> correct. >> you picked it up because it looked cool? >> i thought it looked cool. >> reporter: some of the fieriest moments in the trial actually had to do with the judge and the prosecutor, and the jury never saw any of it. the judge telling the jury to leave so that he could talk to the prosecutor about his line of questioning, saying he tried to bring in evidence that the judge had excluded from the case in pretrial motions, and he admonished the prosecutor for questioning kyle rittenhouse about why he asked for an attorney when he turned himself in to police. >> i was astonished when you
2:06 am
began your examination by commenting on the defendant's post-arrest silence. that's basic law. it's been basic law in this country for 40 years, 50 years. i have no idea why you would do something like that. i have heard nothing in this trial to change any of my rulings, so why -- pardon me? >> that was before the testimony. >> don't get brazen with me. you knew very well -- you know very well that an attorney can't go into these types of areas when the judge has already ruled, without asking outside the presence of the jury to do so, so don't give me that. you're an experienced trial attorney and you're telling me that when the judge says, i'm excluding this, you just take it upon yourself to put it in because you think that you found a way around it? come on. >> reporter: that was just a bit of the back and forth where the judge gave the prosecution a tongue lashing and the defense seized on that, saying to the judge that they plan on filing for a mistrial in this case.
2:07 am
the judge said he would take it into consideration. but the trial is continuing and we expect to hear from one of rittenh rittenhouse's in this case, the friend who bought him that ar-15. laura, christine? >> sarah, thank you. a lot to unpack. let's bring in ayesha bell, coauthor of justice at western university. we heard rittenhouse testify he was afraid for his life in the moments before he fired his gun, killing two people. how effective do you think his self-defense argument has been so far? how do you think the jury is receiving this? >> so, that's ultimately -- good morning, first of all. let me say good morning and thank you for having me. that question is ultimately the one that only those 12 jurors will be able to weigh in on, right. but as we are watching this trial at home in our respective places, you know, it's clear
2:08 am
that some believe that his testimony yesterday nearly hurt his credibility because of the way some view him as milking to try to get those tears go, and toe try to get those sobs going. it really may have hurt his credibility. but in terms of the legal sort of requirement that he has to prove, you know, that the prosecution actually has to prove three times over that he did not act reasonably and necessary in the face of an imminent threat to protect himself, you know, that burden in wisconsin, as in many other states in this country now, sits solely with the prosecution. he didn't have to take the stand in order for them to still have that very heavy burden to meet. and they were going to have to prove that beyond a reasonable doubt. his lawyers decided it was worth the risk to put him on the stand in the hopes that that emotional testimony would sway the jurors. and it also provided an
2:09 am
opportunity for him to make the case for why he had the gun and what his intent was at the time of having that gun. >> so the prosecution got rittenhouse to admit that he knew it was illegal to have owned that gun in the first place. he shouldn't have had the gun in the first place. but he's sticking to the argument that he only fired it in self-defense. can he have it both ways here? he knows he legally couldn't have the gun, but then he says he was legally defending himself with it? >> interestingly enough, he actually has to have it both ways in order to win under the wisconsin statute. specifically what i'm talking about is, yes, if he illegally has a gun, the law does not allow him to use the self-defense claim unless he's able to show that despite his provocation, he retreated and did everything he could to avoid
2:10 am
using deadly force. but nonetheless had to in order to protect an imminent threat of death. and so, and so in order to be able to reclaim the self-defense law in the light of his illegal conductor the self-defense, you know, motive, proof for acquittal, in order to do that he has to be able to show that he testified about the fact he did everything he could to retreat and avoid the threat of harm. but nonetheless had to use self-defense. >> professor, we also saw some testy exchanges between the prosecutor and the judge yesterday. judge schraeder stopped the trial twice so he could scold the prosecution, especially during his cross-examination of rittenhouse. he's concerned about the constitutional implications much commenting on the defendant's silence. how big of an effect do you think this judge's rulings have had on the trial? he's made some controversial ones in the past already.
2:11 am
>> yeah, wow. so, i know even watching it at the beginning -- at the top of the hour here, right, i know that causes many people at home to be shocked and, quite frankly, shudder at the harsh words coming from the bench. from my perspective, the only thing that was surprising to me was that it wasn't done at a sidebar, outside of the hearing of everybody except for the court reporter and the lawyers. yes, i know the jury was excused from the room at the time, but the judge's practice of not using a sidebar is really the only reason why we're talking about this today, because otherwise we wouldn't necessarily know all these intricate details. us lawyers would have to speculate and probably rightfully would be able to do so about the fifth amendment piece because it is quite settled. i was surprised to see the prosecution ask the questions related to his silence after the
2:12 am
time he was arrested. this isn't the civil jury. this isn't the civil trial. the reality is that under the fifth amendment, any criminal defendant has the right to not ever say anything, and certainly taking the stand in their own defense is their choice, and all prosecutors know you're not to ask a line of questioning around that decision. >> yeah, the judge made a big point of having an open courtroom. he allowed cell phones in the courtroom, which is unusual. he obviously knows cam razz are there. he's paying attention to our coverage in particular, so very interesting. we'll see how this all plays out. professor, so nice to have you this morning. thank you again. >> thank you for having me. all right, just ahead more damning evidence in another big trial, this one in georgia with the father of gunman travis michael told police moments after the shooting of the jogger ahmaud arbery. so anyone who says lactaid isn't real milk is also saying mabel here isn't a real cow.

inflation watch, shoppers have been paying more for months now. prices aren't coming back to earth any time soon. consumer prices rose 6.2% since louis oosthu last october. even when you strip out food and energy prices, prices rose 4.6%, the biggest since 1991. everything from steaks to eggs, milk and flour all jumping since october last year. cereal was 5% more expensive. baby food prices rose almost 8% annually. shoppers have been dealing with rising prices throughout the recovery thanks to a mix of surging demand, material shortages and choke points in the global supply chain. the news is not something americans or the white house are
2:18 am
happy about frankly. both the biden administration and the fed have said these price spikes will be temporary. in a statement wednesday, the president said inflation hurts americans' pocket books and reversing this trend is a top priority for me. october's report raises questions about the fed whether it needs to roll back its stimulus even faster. shoppers already preparing for higher prices during their holiday shopping sprees. >> is there any rhyme or reason to which things -- is there any rhyme or reason to which things might come down faster? are there some goods we can say give it a minute? >> look, it's all things are coming down fast -- going up fast and not coming down soon: white house has limited options here, right. the prices crashed last year because we weren't gobbling up all these things and demand was back. they're bouncing back and the white house is promising to do something to reverse it. it is unclear toe me what they can do. >> pace themselves, and tolerate it. if they think this is the abyss,
2:19 am
they're more unhappy. >> next year things should start to be more normal. that's next year, not right now. now to the breaking news overnight, we could be just 24 hours other way from a trove of documents former president trump wants to keep secret, being handed of handed over to the january 6 committee. trump tried to stop the release of these materials. >> he now needs to try his hand at the court of appeals. the judge already ruled against trump tuesday, knocking down his claims that executive privilege, informing him he's not president any more. >> what part of "no" don't you understand, is what she's saying to trump. i told you this yesterday. he said he filed a renewed emergency motion. clock is ticking and he's sweating. he will, of course, go to the court of appeals, but he said, just give me the time. freeze the line backers until i go there. she said, no, there's nothing new here. things haven't changed since
2:20 am
yesterday. no means no. go to the court of appeals. this is one of the most urgent questions that is facing us as a legal system, and i think as a democracy today. >> if donald trump is allowed to run out the clock with his usual strategy of delay, lose all the battles, but win the war by running the clock out, that means that the committee may not get to the bottom of what happened on january 6. they won't be able to prevent the next insurrection. it won't be able to consider legislation. and, chris, donald trump is still doing it, that same incitement, that same big lie. >> the issue could be headed to the supreme court, but it is highly unlikely trump's lawyers will have enough time to get a favorable ruling before tomorrow. >> i think he's going to be really sweating. there's basically no way this can happen. he would have to go to the court of appeals first, and then get a ruling from them, and then go to the supreme court and there's just not enough time. all right. well, programming note for you

2:26 am

2:34 am
ease inflationary pressures and bring the cost of goods down. you know, yesterday he was in baltimore and he cited specific provisions in this newly passed infrastructure deal which he will sign into law on monday. that will aim to address some of the pressure points of inflation. he said specific funding will aid ports like the one he spoke from yesterday in baltimore and will help ease supply chain issues which is driving up the cost of goods. you know, biden acknowledged yesterday that the economy is something the americans really, really care about, especially the fact that gas prices are going up, the cost of food is going up. inflation rising. he said consumer prices are one of the most pressing economic concerns of the american people. he said, quote, and it's real. take a listen to what he said yesterday while he spoke addressing americans directly in baltimore. >> today's economic report showing unemployment continuing to fall, but consumer prices
2:35 am
remain too high. tells us the american people in the midst of the economic recovery is showing strong results. not to them. they're still looking out there. everything from a gallon of gas to a loaf of bread costs more and it's worrisome. >> reporter: on one hand he is touting this $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill that passed the house last week. as i said, he will sign into law on monday. but then, on the other hand, the white house is still pressuring democrats to try to pass this separate economic bill that will likely be around $2 trillion, that would have funding to help americans directly with universal pre-k, funding to combat climate change that would create thousands of jobs, would have funding for child care, expand the child tax credit, expanding the nation's social safety net is something that would help put money directly in americans' pockets and ease some of these pressures of driving costs across the country, which is something that the white
2:36 am
house is trying to pressure congress to continue to work to pass. but, of course, there's still some hold ups there. bottom line is the recess is happening here right now. there are not lawmakers here, so we'll likely get an update on that next week. christine? >> daniela, thank you so much for that. nice to see you. it is time for three questions in three minutes. let's bring in zack wolf, senior politics writer, author of what matters newsletter. inflation is running hot, highest since 19920s. you write, inflation infrastructure usually incite only professors and policy wonks and me. but everyday americans need to bone up. infrastructure is the major accomplishment that could save joe biden's presidency. inflation is the force that could doom it. say more. i mean, i argue there is not much, frankly, that the white house can do about prices, especially gas prices at this point. >> i know. i feel bad answering this question for you, professor romans, but i will try. so, i think that the problem for
2:37 am
the biden administration is very simple. he has made this bar, tried to sell this additional spending, trillions of dollars he's gotten, he wants trillions more. all this government spending to make people's lives better. and if everything is more expensive, they're not going to feel that. it's more expensive to fill up their car, to buy milk, to do all these things. they don't necessarily understand that the, you know, 300 or more dollars a month they're getting for children in their paycheck, the essential raise that they've given parents, it might not be felt. so having to explain that complicates this o t $ -- barga he's making. >> he's touting the build back better plan and solutions to inflation. can he convince people, the passage of those bills, they're
2:38 am
going to see it in their grocery bill every month? >> no, he has not. and i think the white house would tell you he hasn't yet either. we're just entering the salesperson pitch version, you know, portion of this effort. first they had to pass it, and that was really hard. and now they have to go sell it essentially, having gotten it put into law. they're going to go around the country and try to make people understand what's going on here. and honestly, i think the things that will help people's lives more immediately, that's in the bill that hasn't passed. >> right. >> the larger social safety net bill. universal pre-k, we're talking about extending the child tax credit, we're talking about giving help for day care. these are the things that help people individually right away. expanding a port is going to help. it's just going to take a really long time. >> that's part of the problem, the time line on this stuff and everyone obviously wants the price to go down right now. fixing a bridge and a port would be great, but it's going to take a really long time. >> the challenge is to say, look, we're going to lower your
2:39 am
child care costs, lower your health care costs, prescription drug costs, do everything we can so costs of everything else will eventually come down to earth. remember, it's reflating from a collapse last year. it's important to put that in perspective. let's talk about the january 6 investigation while you're here. we learned they want to speak to members of mike pence's inner circle. some seem willing to cooperate. what could this mean for trump and mike pence himself? >> it's interesting reading that report. you get the impression there are people who people who might want to talk, or are forced to talk, compelled in some way. will they get all this done in time? that sort of runs underneath everything that's happening here. i also think mike pence is sort of emblematic of the rest of the party. mike pence clearly wants to get beyond donald trump. he wants to run for president. he wants to have a post-trump career, but he's sort of stuck in this accountability phase where, you know, he can't anger
2:40 am
the trump supporters, but he wants to move beyond the trump era. and i think his staffers or former staffers, do they need to be subpoenaed to come in, will they just willingly come talk? what are the optics to the rest of republicans if they do just willingly come talk? and how does that affect mike pence? those are all things i think are really -- watch play out. >> zack wolf, thank you so much for coming on. >> thanks. >> we'll be right back.

2:45 am
>> reporter: yeah, a surprise, but it is very much welcome. one of the big shadows over this conference. we heard it from lots of people has been the suspicion geopolitical differences between the u.s. and china have been hampering, limiting the ability of issues on climate change. they said they're not going to link the other disagreements to the work we need to get done on climate. so it's not rich in detail yet, but it points to an intention to work closely and constructively together. it's a powerful message to the rest of the world. the two biggest polluters saying they are going to work so closely and hopefully build momentum, set examples. the key question, i guess, is can it make any difference to what's happening here in glasgow right now. around 200 countries are working through draft language on end agreements for when this conference closes. there's some important stuff in there. a strong argument for limiting global average temperature
2:46 am
increase based on the science to 1.5 degrees celsius by the end of the century. and perhaps most crucially, instructions for all countries to go away, revisit their emissions targets for this decade, and bring them back in a more ambitious way in one year's time. that is important because what it means is that it is still theoretically possible, even once this conference closes, to achieve what the science says is necessary, which is cut emissions by around 50% by 2030. we know that we are nowhere near close to achieving that right now if countries come back next year and perhaps the year after that. as i say, in theory it remains possible. without that specific language, and it will be under pressure from countries who don't want to do this, it is very likely this conference and, indeed the whole cop process would be considered to be a failure by many people. >> phil, yesterday transportation was the focus of the summit there. transit, of course, responsible for so much of the carbon emissions, cars, planes, trucks, so on. any progress in those talks?
2:47 am
>> reporter: yeah, it is a key issue here as you said because it is such a big source of emissions. the u.s. transport secretary pete buttigieg is here talking about the implications of u.s. policy on climate. including, for example, u.s. plans to get its aviation industry to net zero, a hugely challenging task heavily reliant on big jumps in technology. but the united states did not sign on to a declaration that was really being pushed by the british government here to commit countries to only producing zero-emissions cars by 2040. in the end only about 30 countries did sign on. none of the car-making super powers. not u.s., not germany, not china. we did see some big car companies add their name to it like general motors, ford, volvo, but a lot of them didn't. it would seem that despite the direction of the industry and of the market, it is clearly heading in that direction.
