tv   Way Too Early With Jonathan Lemire  MSNBC  July 15, 2022 2:00am-3:00am PDT

2:00 am
founding leaders of faith works, thank you so much for joining us tonight. we appreciate it. that does it for us tonight. we'll see you again tomorrow. and i'll see you on my show over on peacock, on sunday nights here on msnbc. "way too early" with jonathan lemire is coming up next. palestinians and israelis deserve equal measure of freedom and security and dignity. and access to health care. when you need it is essential to living a life of dignity for all of us. >> that's president biden speaking from an east jerusalem hospital just moments ago after announcing new funding to support the palestinian people. he's now meeting with the president of the palestinian authority, and is set to deliver remarks just a short time from now. we'll be watching that, and we'll bring you all the latest
2:01 am
investments. plus, the latest in presidential politics as donald trump all but confirms that he is going to run for president again. what he says about the timing of his official announcement. and the u.s. secret service accused of deleting messages related to the january 6th attack on the capitol. we'll have the agency's explanation. good morning. welcome to "way too early" on this friday, july 15th. i'm jonathan lemire. thanks for being here. former president donald trump's bid for the white house gain seems all but certain. in an interview, in my own mind, i have already made that decision. he says the only thing left to decide is whether to announce before or after this november's midterms. trump told the magazine that a benefit to announcing before
2:02 am
november would be to potentially clear the republican field, saying quote, i think a lot of people would not even run if i did, because if you look at the polls, they don't even register. that of course, is actually not true. recent polls show that florida governor ron desantis is tied or ahead of trump in a handful of key states. however, trump claimed in the interview that he doesn't even consider desantis to be a real rival. the topic of the many state and federal investigates into the former president came up. he denied that shielding himself from prosecution is among the reasons for running, that quote, i did nothing wrong. there are very few republicans mind you that want to see him jump in before november fearing it will be a distraction of the midterms where they feel like they will do well. meanwhile the secret service is being accused of deleting text messages that could be critical to the investigation into the events around the insurrection. in a letter this week to both
2:03 am
the house and senate homeland security committees, the dhs inspector general writes that after his office requested full electronic records for an evaluation of the capitol attack, the secret service deleted a significant number of text messages from january 5th and 6th of 2021. this letter was obtained by nbc news, after its contents were first reported by the intercept. meanwhile, the secret service is denying that the messages were deleted with any sort of malicious intent. in a statement, a secret service spokesman claims that some data was lost during a pre-planned device replacement program that began in january, 2021, before the dhs probe into the insurrection even began. the spokesman also notes that the secret service has been fully cooperative with the dhs probe, but this revelation sparked a lot of questions from lawmakers yesterday. we haven't heard the last of this. well we'll now turn to the
2:04 am
war in ukraine. and at least 23 people were killed yesterday, after more missile attacks on a civilian location. ukrainian officials say cruise missiles from a russian ship in the black sea damaged a medical clinic, offices, stores, and residential buildings in the city of vininytsia, deep in ukraine, 160 miles south of kyiv. police say among the dead are three children younger than ten years old. more than 100 other people were also reportedly injured in the strike. russia meanwhile continues to deny targeting civilians, despite a growing number of strikes against residential areas in recent weeks. nbc news correspond ellison barber now joins us live from dnipro, ukraine, with more on this. thanks for being with us again today. horrible images coming from these attacks. we know that three young children are among the dead.
2:05 am
what more have we learned? are survivors still being pulled out? do we think the death toll could rise? >> it is hard to find the words to describe what we're seeing here, and a number of ukrainian officials are calling, demanding for russia to be declared as a state sponsor of terrorism. 71 people are hospitalized because of this attack. 117 people reportedly sought medical assistance. 18 are still missing. 23 people are dead, among them, three children, one who has been identified by the regional governor as a 4-year-old named lisa. there is one just utterly horrific photo from the scene, believed to be of lisa, showing her lying in the street next to a stroller. her tiny shoes spattered in blood. shortly before the missiles hit, her mother had actually take an video of them walking along the street, she posted it on social media. she's been described, this
2:06 am
child, as sunny lisa, you see her walking and this video is what we should remember, her smile, her head nod and i keep thinking about the shoes in the first photo, how small that they are, the fact that they are velcro and too young to possibly know how to tie her own shoes, but this video, this face, this is what we should remember, and the future that was stolen from her yesterday. we see attacks like the one we saw here in a-lot in ukraine but they are so much more than just a headline. yesterday we were at at hospital here in dnipro and we met a man who had been at work at an oil depot in the area back in june when a missile hit him. he suffered severe burns all up and down his arms. the back of his head. his neck. he showed us, he has been in the hospital for weeks. he is 24 years old. he is not a member of the military. he said he was just at work. when the missiles hit. i asked him if he could say anything to the people who did this, if he had a chance to talk to people who fired those
2:07 am
missiles, to russian soldiers, what do you want to say to them? and this is what he said. >> i have no words what to say to them. these are just not humans, the people who are doing this, and i would not want their children to see this. >> a spokesperson for the general staff of the armed forces of ukraine says russia fired five missiles at that city, two of them were intercepted by ukrainian air defense, three of them hit the city center. jonathan? >> just heart-breaking video of that poor little girl, ellison. it does seem like what russia is doing here is analysts have described it as a terror campaign, the the real fighting remapes in the donbas, traditional warfare, but it seems that russia is firing indrimtly ever so often, with missiles in other ukrainian cities and they have no
2:08 am
objectives to control or invade those cities any longer and they just want to cause death, destruction and fear. >> right, that's certainly the feeling that you get from when you speak to the ukrainian people here. they believe that russia knows exactly what it is doing, that they are purposefully targeting civilian areas. there have been a number of instances where we've seen things like anti-ship missiles being used to describing locations on land. those things are not incredibly accurate when they're not used for their proper purpose, which is not in a land or urban type environment. and then you see things like the shopping center being hit, people dying as a result, you see other instances that have been well-documented by human rights organizations, of russia continuing to use cluster munitions, something that most states agree should not be used at any time, because they are so indiscriminate when they explode, they have sub-munitions that cause collateral damage and more often than not, civilians
2:09 am
are the victims. and here in ukraine, with zelenskyy, and people you meet on the street, they believe russia knows exactly what they are doing, they are doing this on purpose to make people terrified to live in this country and force people to flee and to make them not want to be part of this country anymore and they will tell you every time this is an intentional attack again and again and they believe genocide is taking place here. >> russia's actions under scrutiny and condemnation as many world leaders at the hague this very week. nbc's ellison barber, thank you very much for that report. we also now have some other news. the latest on the sudden death of a member of the trump family, ivana trump, the first wife to former president donald trump was found dead inside her new york city apartment yesterday. she was 73 years old. nbc news chief white house correspondent kristen welker has the details. >> reporter: in the 1980s, they were one of new york's power couples, the brash real estate mogul donald trump, and his glamorous first wife ivana, the
2:10 am
former president announcing her death, calling her a wonderful, beautiful, and amazing woman, who led a great and inspirational life. her pride and joy were her three children, donald jr., ivanka, and eric. she was so proud of them, as we are all so proud of her. ivana trump grew up under communist rule in the former check slow vaca. as a child she was a competitive skier, and later fleeing to canada and then new york where she met mr. trump, and becoming a prominent new york socialite an executive at the trump organization, working on key projects like trump tower in manhattan, and managing the plaza hotel. >> we're working as a team, and you're working on the same thing. donald and i together. >> managing one specific diamond like the plaza hotel. i don't think there's anybody better. >> she would later become a fixture in the tabloids during the couple's very public divorce in 1992, and even making a cameo
2:11 am
in the movie "the first wives club". >> she said recently, she was on good terms with mr. trump, saying they spoke once a week. >> in a statement, her family writing, our mother was an incredible woman, a force in business, a world class athlete, a radiant beauty, and a caring mother and friend. she will be dearly missed by her mother, her three children, and ten grandchildren. >> ivana trump, 73. still ahead here on "way too early," the january 6th committee weighs its options for an interview or testimony from former vice president mike pence. plus, the predicted fall covid surge appears to be ahead of schedule. where covid cases and hospitalizations are rising the fastest. those stories and a check on the weather as well as the president's trip to the middle east when we come right back. pridesent's trip to the middle

covid-19 hospital admissions are again rising around the country. as the newest highly contagious omicron subvariant circulates widely. cdc data shows since earlier this week, hospitalizations are exceeding 31,000 over a seven-day average. but admissions from the subvariant are 80% lower than they peaked at the start of the year, and deaths also remain relatively low. hospitalizations are the highest in the south, including in texas, arkansas, louisiana, new mexico, and oklahoma. early data suggests the new subvariant is not more deadly but far more contagious than previous versions. a republican senator has blocked a bill that would allow women to travel to other states to access abortion legally. democratic senator nevada wrote the freedom to travel for health care act to cross state lines to receive an abortion and as well
2:16 am
as those doctors who perform them and an oklahoma senator blocked a bill, accusing democrats of seeking to inflame the what-ifs. >> i come back to the most basic thing. there's a child in this conversation. does that child in the womb have the right to travel in their future? >> the bill is one of the options democrats are exploring to protect abortion seekers and providers because they don't have enough votes in the senate to codify roe v. wade into federal law. a horrifying case in ohio is highlighting the deep divide in this country over abortion. following the supreme court's reversal of roe v. wade. police have arrested a man for raping a 10-year-old girl who had to travel to another state to get an abortion. several politicians and media outlets are now walking back their previous skepticism over
2:17 am
the story. nbc news national correspondent gabe guiterrez has the latest. >> reporter: in columbus ohio, a judge ordered 27-year-old rape suspect held on two million bail. >> it is my understanding that she just turned ten years old. >> according to court documents, he confessed to raping and impregnating a 10-year-old girl and she travelled from ohio where it was banning most abortions to neighboring indiana to end the pregnancy. the case has become the latest flashpoint in the national abortion debate. following the supreme court's reversal of roe v. wade. it was first reported earlier this month by the indianapolis star newspaper, citing a single source an ob-gyn in indians. the story went viral. last week, president biden brought it up. >> imagine being that little girl. just i'm serious, just imagine being that little girl. ten years old. >> over the next several days, republicans including ohio's attorney general cast doubt on the story. >> we have regular contact with
2:18 am
prosecutors and local police and sheriffs, and not a whisper anywhere. >> then, after the suspect's arrest, the issue of the statement, my heartaches for the pain suffered by this young child. i'm grateful for the diligent work of the columbus police department in securing a confession and getting a rapist off the street. "the wall street journal" editorial board had also previously questioned the story. now, it's published a new ed controversial, correcting the record, writing, it appears president biden was accurate. still the indiana republican attorney general says he will investigate the ob-gyn who performed the procedure for failing to report it. that ob-gyn says in part, doctors must be able to give people the medical care they need when and where they need it. the case now highlighting deep divisions in this country, as states scramble to clarify their own laws from supporters of abortion rights. >> it's a hard truth to realize that these horrible things are going to happen to children and other people in your state because of the really severe
2:19 am
restrictions that are placed. >> to those who oppose abortion. >> with so many questions about what really happened, it's a real shame that the biden administration rushed to exploit this poor little girl's situation. >> a 10-year-old girl. still ahead here on "way too early," the very latest on the president's trip to the middle east, as he wraps up his visit in israel. we're going to go live to saudi arabia for a preview of biden's controversial next stop. he'll get there later today. we're back in a moment.

2:23 am
sporting organizations as well as medical records purporting to show a history of injuries that have resulted in severe chronic pain by the wnba star. the defense also submitted a document granting permission for the use of cannabis for medical purposes to treat severe chronic pain issued by arizona's department of health, and the player's doping test results, all of which were negative. griner also appeared in court yesterday, for testimony from character witnesses, including the head of the russian club she plays for in the off-season, and a teammate from that squad, as her defense appeals for leniency in a case that carries a sentence of up to ten years in prison. griner has been held in custody since her arrest at a moscow airport in february. the russian officials said they have found vape cartridges containing cannabis oil in her luggage. last week, griner's lawyer says she acknowledged to the court that the cartridges were hers and that she had packed them by mistake. the u.s. considers griner wrongfully detained by russia.

2:31 am
i'm jonathan lemire. thanks for being here. president biden is in the west bank this morning, the president met with palestinian leader ma muhamed abbas and the pair are set to deliver joint statements shortly and expected to visit the church of the nativity. earlier, biden visited the east jerusalem hospital network delivering remarks and promising funding for cancer research. biden is unveiling more than $300 million in palestinian aid during his visit. the administration is hoping the package will revive ties with the palestinian authority. the bulk of the funds will go to the united nations program that former president trump stopped funding during his own term. biden will then return to tel aviv after that visit, and from there, he will fly directly to saudi arabia, for high stakes talks. joining us now, white house correspondent from bloomberg news, justin, who is already in saudi arabia, justin always puts
2:32 am
his hands up for any trips where the temperature will get to 100 degrees. thanks for joining us this morning. let's start with the president's visit to the west bank. we know that the trump administration largely derailed the peace negotiations and severed the relationship with the palestinians, this white house trying to repair things. is there a sense that this is a first step? >> yes, i think first step is the right way to frame it. because after the trump administration, the peace process really took, especially the peace process oriented toward the two state solution, took a back step to the relationship between israel and the u.s. and israel's other arab partners in the region. bringing palestinian aid back for the first time in four years and by resuming donations, what president biden is doing real, it is kind of bringing those folks together but you heard him admit earlier on this visit that he doesn't think a two-state solution is coming any time
2:33 am
soon, so had is not going to be a sort of legacy item that we're going to see in the near future. >> and many observers eyes, this whole first trip, israel, the palestinian authority is, just a precursor to the main event of this middle east journey which of course is where you, are saudi arabia, the president will be landing a few hours from now, walk us through his schedule, if you will, and we already know some signs of progress, saudi arabia announcing a few hours ago a rise in fly over air space rights with travel to other country, but the biggest issue is oil. what do we think the u.s. will get from this, in its effort to try to keep gas prices from -- surging again? >> the president will meet with both the team and then later on the crown prince and that's the relationship we are looking at particularly in terms of oil. president biden came to office, saying saudi arabia should be a pariah, knowing the crown prince's role in the killing of jamal khashoggi and critical of
2:34 am
saudi arabia up to a few months ago when russia's invasion of ukraine pushed energy prices up high and put the administration in a place where they needed help on oil. i don't know that we will hear an announcement. both with the u.s. and the saudis, have said that is not imminent. but in the coming weeks, there might be a production increase on oil. what effect it will have on gas prices for americans back home, we'll still have to see. >> justin, walk us through what you think administration officials are saying about the trip and the president was asked in a news conference yesterday and says his views ton are clear but he didn't commit to bringing it up face to face with the crown prince. >> yes, and so that's an indication that i think the u.s. is interested in turning the page here. and the president doesn't bring up the situation directly, that's something the crown prince has pretty directly said that he wants to move past as well. we didn't know until today that
2:35 am
their interaction will be open to the media and we should get at least images of their interaction. there has been a lot of speculation about whether they will fist bump or handshake or embrace, or stay across the table from one another and we will be watching the body language there, and it will be interesting to see, with the president having meetings with the broader coalition of gulf countries tomorrow, and the extent to which he and the crown prince engage when president trump and obama were here, the u.s. and saudi leaders kind of took a dual leadership role in that broader conference, and so we'll see if president biden is willing or eager to engage with the crown prince while he's there on that level. >> and the president's decision to meet the crown prince at all coming under fierce criticism from many in his own party back home. thank you, my friend. travel safe. good luck covering it this weekend. we appreciate you being here. still ahead in business, the futures board is up slightly this morning. after another mostly negative day for wall street. we're live with cnbc, for a look at what could drive today's

2:41 am
healthy but jamie dimon warned that geopolitical attention, high inflation, waning consumer confidence, and the uncertainty around the impact of rising interest rates and quantitative tightening could have very negative consequences on the global economy sometime down the road. so some pretty discouraging comments about the outlook. >> more and more recession talk it seems by the day. lastly, amazon said that this year's prime day event, its annual shopping blitz, was its biggest in history. tell us more, please. >> more than 300 million items were purchased as part of this two-day event. now amazon doesn't disclose the total in terms of sales, they did give us a little bit of color on what people were buying, so let me shed some light on it for you. the top-selling categories in the united states, consumer electronics, home goods, and amazon branded devices. so i think the key take-away here, and what is interesting is that despite the fact that we're seeing a rise in prices, and

"the wall street journal" reports that the select committee investigating january 6th met privately last night. and among the topics discussed was whether to seek an interview with former vice president mike pence. chairman bennie thompson said no decision was made. the committee member adam kinzinger told the newspaper that lawmakers could decide to request a written interview or issue a subpoena to compel him
2:46 am
to testify. kinzinger tells the journal the committee is also weighing whether to ask donald trump to testify, and that it is likely a criminal referral of trump will be made to the justice department. we will follow that in the weeks ahead. joining us now senior reporter for insider, camila thanks would be a blockbuster development and you have new reporting on how the january 6th panel is working to gather evidence that could show how former president trump violated federal law. hence a criminal referral. what can you tell us about those finding? >> good morning, jonathan. the january 6th committee has laid out a lot of evidence in the course of the hearings and we have found out that trump has potentially violated laws, everything from wire fraud to witness tampering, and we have spoken to several legal experts
2:47 am
and they say that trump's legal defense strategy could change depending on what crime he is potentially charged. with and if you go into the inner circle, saying he followed the advice of his legal advisers and to him, his legal defense attorneys saying that he genuinely believed that the election was rigged and that's why he pursued all of these measures to try to overturn the 2020 presidential election. >> federal laws. is that all? and we will talk about what we opened the show with, which are the secret service text messages dating from january 5th and january 6th, 2021, that were apparently erased. obviously the role of the secret service, it has come under tremendous scrutiny here particularly in light of the testimony from cassidy hutchinson that the former president had a heated exchange with one agent in a presidential suv, a charge denied by the secret service and one of the
2:48 am
members who went on to work for president trump, so what do you make of this accusation from the federal watchdog about the missing texts, and how critical could those messages be? what do we think the next steps are here? >> well, very significant watchdog group sent lawmakers a letter detail nath secret service members, the text messages were deleted around this significant period of time. as you mentioned there was a focus on the secret service, especially around the time of january 6th after the testimony of cassidy hutchinson where she said trump lunged at a secret service member. since that hearing, the secret service agents have spoken off the record, you know, in a commission of anonymity, that you know, they disagreed with this, with her testimony about this. so we technically might see raised -- or shed some light on what occurred that day from first-hand accounts of secret service members, and it could
2:49 am
compel the january 6 committee to issue subpoenas to force them to testify before the january 6th committee. >> lastly, give us a brief preview if you will of what we should expect from the next potentially final january 6th committee scheduled for this womaning thursday night in prime time. -- for this coming thursday night in prime time. who do we expect to hear from? >> it is still unclear who we expect to hear from. there are a lot of names being thrown out, and the january 6th committee is still going through the details about what they really want this last final hearing to be. but what we can expect is that they're going to lay out their final argument. and that is that trump had a direct role in what happened on january 6th. this is something that he had in advance and he could have taken more measures and could have put more precautions in place in order to prevent what occurred that day and that's what they want to drive home, time and time again, each hearing about, his role, about the role that his associates or his legal
2:50 am
advisers around him have in it. and this hearing will mark their final call to really draw the justice department to further investigate what happened on january 6th. >> 187 minutes of dereliction of duty, as the committee has deemed it. thank you. have a great weekend. duty, as committee has deemed it. reporter for "insider," camilla, thank you. i'm sure we'll talk to you next week. up next on "way too early," senator joe manchin deals another blow to his party's domestic agenda. then on "morning joe," we'll continue to follow president biden's trip in the middle east. he is meeting palestinian officials in the west bank this morning. we're seeing it right there, before he leaves for high-stakes talks in saudi arabia. plus, capitol police officer harry dunn says he is not accepting the apology given by a convicted rioter during tuesday's january 6th committee hearing. the officer will join our conversation. we're also going to hear

a trump-backed candidate for governor in arizona is getting some help from democrats. lake is an election-denying, far-right candidate that has seen her lead shrink. the democratic party thanked lake's opponent for her past contributions to democratic candidates. it's the latest example of democratic groups elevating far-right candidates in republican primaries. the democrats gambling that they can win those matchups in november. meanwhile, senator joe manchin of west virginia is once again dealing a blow to the domestic agenda of his own party. manchin saying he will not support the democrat's economic package that contains new spending on climate change or tax increases targeting wealthy individuals and corporations.
2:55 am
that's according to a democrat briefed on the conversations the west virginia senator recently had. this marks a setback for party leaders who hoped to enact a broad safety net climate and tax package. joining us to talk about it, white house editor for "politico," our friend, sam stein. put on a tie for us today. >> i did, yeah. >> it is senator manchin once again dealing a crushing blow to president biden's domestic agenda. there is no other way to put it. if we think where build back better was in the summer of 2021 and the amount of things that have fallen out of it, mostly because of joe manchin. have the democrats, the rest of the democrats, the president, where do they go from here? >> there's not many options for them to go to. it's not just where build back better was. it is where joe manchin was. "politico" reported he'd struck a tentative, informal framework
2:56 am
deal with chuck schumer. go back and look at that, it is light years away from where we are right now. what remains in the set of narrow negotiations is a provision to narrow the price of prescription drugs and to extend subsiies to purchase obamacare another two years. that's it. none of the other domestic agenda items will matter, and chief among them is the climate provisions, which was supposed to be a historic investment in clean energy and climate change preparation. that's gone. where do they go from here? negotiations will continue over these much more narrow provisions. the question is, what does biden do with the executive authorities on climate when he returns from overseas? keep in mind, this news came -- manchin delivered the blow while biden was away overseas, which is another knife in the back, i suppose. >> let's remember that manchin scuttled the build back better in december on fox news, another
2:57 am
thing perceived not well, shall we say, in the white house. of course, the climate change provisions come because of the war in ukraine, there's been a renewed emphasis on fossil fuels and oil, trying to keep down prices. a lot of activists in the democratic party upset. democrats were looking to run this fall, not getting much in terms of an accomplishment that they can say, hey, we did this the last two years, re-elect us. >> right. it hurts in a couple ways. electorally, obviously, if you don't have a huge, robust, domestic spending package that includes, you know, child care support, elder care support, climate change, it becomes tough to go back to your main constituencies and say, hey, we delivered, especially for the youth vote which was looking at climate change as an existential threat. electorally, it is a huge problem. obviously, as a strict policy
2:58 am
matter, climate change is a massive crisis that the body politic at some point does have to address, you'd imagine. that's being put off for a few more years at the minimum. you know, activists who are really concerned about this counter it could be decades before democrats get another trifecta that they can use to address it. as a strict policy matter, it is devastating for climate activists, too. >> i think devastation almost doesn't begin to describe the disappointment for so many about this. sam, one more for you. you mentioned, of course, the president heading to saudi arabia later today. we know some of the policy behind it, right? you'll focus on iran. they're certainly going to focus on oil. let's talk about the politics of it. this is a tough one to make. presidents often have to make deals with unsavory characters overseas. it certainly seems that's what's happening with president biden and the crown prince of saudi arabia. what political fallout do we expect the president may face,
2:59 am
if any, back at home? >> i think -- i mean, the white house don't perceive there to be much political fallout domestically. people aren't paying attention as close to this stuff as you and i are. they aren't going to ding him for taking a visit with mbs after calling saudi arabia a pariah state. far more interesting for them is whether they can get oil prices down and simultaneously whether they can build on the abraham accord and build this joint venture between saudi arabia and israel. the president came out with a jubilant statement this morning, noting that there is an aerospace agreement, allowing israelis to fly over saudi air space. that think that'll help them more politically than anyone charging him with hypocrisy or putting aside morality when they came and visited mbs. >> yeah, and there is a hope, the belief that saudi arabia will increase oil production.
3:00 am
probably not for a few more weeks, but that could help the market, as well. >> right. >> "politico's" sam stein, thank you very much. have a good weekend, my friend. thanks to all of you for getting up "way too early" on this friday morning. this is for you, allen.
