7:03 am
>> abc's white house correspondent maryalice parks at the justice department with what happens now. and good morning, maryalice. >> reporter: brian, good morning. steve bannon is facing two charges for defying that congressional subpoena. one for refusing to testify, the other for failing to provide documents that the committee requested and, of course, his case is now raising questions about what will happen to the other allies of former president trump who at this point are also refusing to cooperate. steve bannon is waking up this morning facing criminal charges for defying a subpoena refusing to answer questions from the congressional committee investigating the attack on the capitol on january 6th. for months congressional investigators have wanted to know what role bannon may have had in orchestrating the attack. the house voting last month to hold him in contempt pointing to his own words before the siege. >> all hell is going to break loose tomorrow. you have made this happen and tomorrow it's game day.
7:04 am
>> reporter: bannon has suggested he should be shielded by executive privilege, a president's right to have confidential communication. but in announcing these charges, the department of justice made specific reference to the fact that bannon had been a private citizen for years since he left the white house staff in 2017. arguing there's no reason he should be able to ignore congress. the select committee writing that the charges should send a clear message to others saying no one is above the law. we will not hesitate to use the tools at our disposal to get the information we need. attorney general merrick garland under pressure to keep decisions above the political fray talked about the case last month. >> the department of justice will do what it always does in such circumstances, it will apply the facts and law and make a decision consistent with the principles of prosecution. >> reporter: the big question now, what about others? the committee yesterday was supposed to hear from the former white house chief of staff mark meadows, but he did not show up. they are considering holding him in contemt of congress too.
7:05 am
now, steve bannon is expected to surrender to law enforcement monday and appear in court later that afternoon. if found guilty, he could face up to two years in prison, whit, plus fines. >> all right, maryalice, thank you. for more now we are joined by abc news legal analyst channa lloyd. with the cochran firm as well. channa, good morning to you. it's good to have you here. so steve bannon as we heard there was indicted by a federal grand jury charged on two counts of contempt of congress. how rare are charges like these, and what's bannon facing if convicted? >> typically we don't see charges like this coming forward. so this is highly unusual. however, this has been a highly unusual situation. so their refusal to cooperate with the committee has prompted the doj now to move forward with these charges. each of these charges faces a minimum of 30 days to a maximum of one year in prison. they also carry a minimum of $100 to $1,000 fine as well. >> what about the suggestion from bannon's legal team that he
7:06 am
should be protected by executive privilege? he was no longer working in the white house at the time of the riots. he left in 2017. >> you know, whit, that executive privilege is typically not extended past that period of time. i mean, that's why it's currently on appeal with ex-president trump trying to get that through. now, he does not have the benefit of that, which is why he's going to face these charges and could be found guilty of such contempt. >> so talking about the next steps here, members of the house select committee are warning this should send a clear message to anyone who tries to stonewall the investigation. should former chief of staff mark meadows and other advisers be concerned? >> at this point they're clear that they are going to seek contempt charges for anyone that is not showing willingness to this investigation. so it would be in their best interest to cooperate with this committee if they don't want to seek charges against them, so at this point it's fair game and everyone seems as though they're on clear notice as to how the house, the committee feels about this.
7:07 am
>> so we heard there in maryalice's piece bannon's own words before the event predicting all you know what is going to break loose tomorrow. how much will comments like that play a role in this case? >> comments like that are going to definitely play a role in this case. now, as far as contempt, the contempt is confined to not obeying a court order. now, if there are additional charges that may come out of the information that's found out once he is deposed and the information that -- and documents are turned over, it could rise to other charges such as inciting a riot and other criminal charges as well. >> all right, channa lloyd for us, thank you so much for your time this morning. we do appreciate it. linsey, over to you. >> thank you, whit. >> thanks, whit. now to the pandemic and covid-19 cases are rapidly rising in the u.s. the nationwide daily case average is now up nearly 20% since mid-october. the increase comes as a federal court deals a blow to president biden's vaccine or test mandate. abc's elwyn lopez joins us live from outside of a hospital here in new york city with more.
7:08 am
good morning to you, elwyn. >> reporter: hey, linsey, good morning. that federal vaccine mandate for two-thirds of the american workforce will remain on hold after that decision. this as several states are already okaying booster shots for all adults even before the green light from the cdc. breaking overnight, a big blow for the biden administration. a u.s. appeals court upholding a decision to block the covid-19 mandate for large companies, calling it staggeringly overbroad. the mandate would require employees to get the shot or risk losing their job. this new decision comes as health officials across the country brace for a possible winter surge. >> unfortunately, we're just not out of the woods yet. we have to have a healthy level of caution as we're stepping into this holiday season. >> reporter: the nation seeing a uptick in hospitalizations for four consecutive days, 47,000 patients currently receiving care, yet that is still down about 55% since mid-august. but in colorado, health care workers are being pushed to the brink.

7:14 am
james p. spears, as we all know from public records, public records took anywhere from $3 million to $4 million from the estate. >> reporter: britney has previously said she wants her dad to face consequences. >> with jamie spears, britney's father who served as the conservator for her for most of the 13 years, it remains up in the air. if she wanted to continue in that direction and decide to pursue her father for whatever harm he may have caused her, they would have to start a brand-new civil action. >> reporter: in the end no one in the courthouse pushed back to removing the conservatorship, not even britney's dad who insists he was always acting in the best interest of his daughter. okay, so what is next for the superstar? her lawyer says for the first time in a decade that's up to her. linsey? >> a brand-new chapter for the pop star. zohreen, thank you so much. in georgia jurors in the

ahmaud arbery murder trial were shown new body camera video of police responding to reports of possible burglary in the same neighborhood where ahmaud was gunned down just two weeks before he was killed. jurors got to hear defendant travis mcmichael and his neighbors express their concern about seeing young black men in the neighborhood. in earlier video arbery is seen looking around at night. he was not armed and was never seen taking anything. meanwhile in wisconsin, major developments in the kyle rittenhouse trial. the judge now indicates he'll likely allow the jury to consider lesser charges when deliberations begin. that could be as early as monday. now, this decision could be a huge break for the prosecution. rittenhouse is accused of killing joseph rosenbaum and anthony huber and injuring gaige grosskreutz during protests in kenosha last year. turning now to the economy, a record number of people have quit their jobs with millions of positions going unfilled and the cost of everyday items soaring. abc's deidre bolton has more on what it all means especially for your wallet. deidre, hey, good morning. >> good morning.
7:16 am
it is a new record. so close to 4.5 million americans quit their jobs in september, higher than the previous record set in august, 4.3 million quit then. so with more than 10 million available jobs, some wonder what's going on. economists pointing to a few possible reasons for this mismatch, so a misalignment between workers' skills and the types of jobs available. large number of people who outright retired during the pandemic and difficulty finding child care. this tight labor market spells trouble across many industries. retailers are one group scrambling to attract workers ahead of the holiday season. macy's offering referral bonuses of up to $500 to employees who recruit friends or family. some amazon warehouse jobs coming with signing bonuses of up to $3,000. but even though workers' wages are going up, so is the cost of almost every household good. experts say inflation pretty much erasing every single wage gain for workers.
7:17 am
in the government's latest report the pain at the pump is real. gas, 59% higher than at this time last year. that affects hundreds of millions of americans. food prices up across the board as well. so meat, poultry, fish, eggs, about 12% more than this time a year ago. moving forward, the president now walking a fine line touting his infrastructure bill as a key solution to rising consumer prices and inflation jitters, but the highest inflation levels in decades raising new concerns about this massive $2 trillion spending bill before congress. moderate democrats and republicans still wary of that high price tag. brian? >> all right, thank you very much. it is time for the forecast here on a saturday morning. rob marciano live in studio here in times square off the tailgate beat this morning. >> yeah, exactly. >> good to see you, rob. >> do you know how long i've been waiting for brian to introduce me? so good to have you up here from philly, my man, great to have you in the studio. hello, linsey and you too, whit.
7:18 am

7:19 am
highs today low to mid-60's for most. upper 60's where you might see more sun. the accuweather 7-day forecast, that e as as brian mentioned didn't want to miss being in the studio with him. so i'm not at "college gameday," but you know who is. they're down at oxford, mississippi today. joining us live from espn "college gameday" is their analyst, desmond howard. they're already going bananas. forget about the game. it's been a long time since you guys have been at ole miss. what's the grove looking like right now? >> you're right, rob. it's been quite some time since "gameday" has been here, but we're so excited to be in the grove. it's one of the best scenes in all of college football. i mean, they take tailgating to another level here. they're very serious about it, and they have their team taking on the aggies tonight. this is going to be incredible, incredible atmosphere for "college gameday," rob.
7:20 am
>> the aggies will be tough. they've been tough all year for sure. you're looking sweet in that bow tie. i think that's an ole miss thing too. let's talk about the big ten match-ups we have on abc. at noon we have number six michigan facing penn state. harbaugh had a tough loss against michigan state. who do you think has the edge here? >> well, first of all, rob, thank you for noticing the bow tie. i told my buddy this morning, i said, listen, everything is downhill from here because this was the most had to do this morning was make sure i nailed the bow tie. so thanks for noticing. >> you nailed it. >> michigan is playing penn state today. big game for michigan on the road. it's going to be exciting. penn state is always tough at home. the biggest factor, rob, is not a night kick because that whiteout is just a different atmosphere, one of the best in the country. it's a new kick. i think that michigan will have a lot to prove obviously on the road two weeks ago, lost to sparty, second trip -- i mean first trip on the road since that game. we'll see how it turns out for them. >> it helps it's not a night
7:21 am
game. it's going to be tough weather. breezy conditions for that game and not only there but columbus, 3:30 eastern, number 19, the boilermakers take on the buckeyes, number 4 at ohio state. purdue, they've been the spoilers this year. what do you think about this game? >> i tell you what, rob, if they beat ohio state in columbus, you got to change that nickname from the boilermakers to the spoilermakers because this will be the third top four team that they've taken out in this season. don't forget, they knocked off iowa when they were number two in the country. then last week, michigan state rolled up there, number three in the country and they took care of sparty. if they're able to go to columbus and beat ohio state, you have to change that nickname to the spoilermakers. pay attention to one guy they got, a wide receiver they got who i think is very special. he's been playing very well in big games. but ohio state's treveyon henderson, that running back, to me, rob, he's the key for the buckeyes' offense.
7:22 am
c.j. stroud gets a lot of attention, but i think treveyon henderson is the straw that stirs the drink when it comes to the buckeyes' offense. >> we'll see how he does running downhill and we'll see how you do keeping the bow tie looking nifty all through "college gameday." good to see you, desmond. "college gameday" at 9:00 a.m. eastern on espn. then we've got two big ten games. as we mentioned, kickoff for college football saturday on abc michigan agains eastern. ohio state against purdue as we mentioned -- >> rob, you're our straw that stirs the drink. we'll be right back.
