tv   Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans  CNN  August 19, 2015 2:00am-3:01am PDT

2:00 am
hillary clinton defending herself of her private e-mail server. the questions do not end. president obama facing new opposition to the nuclear deal with iran from within his own party. happening now, investigators hunting for the man behind a deadly bombing in bangkok. we are live with how they plan to track him down. good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. it is wednesday, august 19th. 500 a.m. in the east. nice to see you. john berman is off today. hillary clinton is defending hearses, aga herself, again. she took more questions from reporters at a town hall meeting in nevada. she says she never received anything marked classified from her private e-mail account and she does not know if her private server was ever wiped clean. this following an nbc news
2:01 am
report the server was cleared before it was turned over to the fbi or tried to be clear. the fbi is looking to recover any data. clinton now getting testy with reporters over questions about that server. >> my personal e-mails are my personal business, right? so that is all i can say. >> you wiped the server? >> i'm not -- you know, i have no idea. that's why we turned it over. >> you said you were in charge of it. you were the official in charge. did you wipe the server? >> like, with a cloth or something? >> i don't know. you know how it works digitally. >> i don't know how it works digitally at all. >> cnn's jeff zeleny has the latest for us. >> good morning, christine. hillary clinton was defiant on tuesday night at a campaign stop in nevada, saying she did not receive or send any e-mail messages their marked classified. she was there for a town hall meeting, but she took questions from reporters afterwards and the e-mail questions dominated the conversation. >> whether it was a personal account or a government account,
2:02 am
i did not send classified material and i did not receive any material that was marked or designated classified, which is the way you know whether something is. what you're seeing now is a disagreement between agencies saying, you know what. they should of and the other saying no, they shouldn't. that has nothing to do with me. if it had been a government account and i said, release it, we would be having the same arguments. >> reporter: of course, she is facing questions from reporters, congressional hearings are just around the corner and even a justice department investigation about this ongoing e-mail controversy is still in front of her. this all goes back to her decision to use a private e-mail server while she was secretary of state. now running for president is all about navigating obstacles and she sure has a few in front of her. of course, she has manage advantages. she is the front running candidate, she is some 20 points ahead of senator bernie sanders of vermont but she does have obstacles. whether it's the black lives matter activists that have been following her and other presidential candidates around,
2:03 am
or if it's answering questions for yet another day about the controversy over that private e-mail server she decided to use as secretary of state. she is defiant saying she did nothing wrong and she closed her time in nevada saying, i know there is a certain level of anxiety or interest in this, but the facts are the facts. christine, i can tell you those questions will keep on going as she keeps on campaigning. back to you. >> they certainly will. thanks for that. on the republican side, candidates are converging on new hampshire today. jon kasich, jeb bush, chris christie and bobby jindal expected to speak at an education new hampshire. donald trump is holding the first town hall event. no doubt immigration will coming up. that is the first cornerstone he has put in his domestic agenda. the controversial plan is forcing much of the gop field to tackle this notoriously sticky subject. candidates are weighing in both for and against the elements of the trump's agenda. >> what about the 14th amendment to the constitution which the
2:04 am
courts have said automatically grant citizenship to children born in the united states, even if their parents are here illegally? >> well, i think that's going to require a little bit more discussion. the fact is that we have operated under that assumption really since the 1800s. and to change it, it would require some strong will, either on the part of the president. >> our southern-based border is being penetrated every single day by drug cartels and pushing drugs, firearms, human trafficking, and no sovereign nation should be in position with that happening. as president, i'm going to secure the border once and for all, and i will uphold the laws of the great united states of america. >> i don't agree with that. i certainly think we have to do a better job. i'm opening to prevent things to prevent people from deliberately coming to the u.s. and taking advantage of the 14th amendment but i'm not in favor of appealing it. >> the idea we would go out in cars and hunt people down, it's not doable and, secondly, i don't think it's right! i don't think it's humane!
2:05 am
>> this constitutionally protected right and i don't support revoking it. there is a way to use leadership to solve abuses for people that are coming into the country, having children so that their children can be citizens. that is a legitimate problem. in a targeted way, you can deal with this issue, but to suggest that people born in this country are not united states citizens and they don't have this in the constitution, i just reject out of hand. >> be sure to join us tonight for a cnn special report, the donald trump interview. the republican front-runner sits down with chris cuomo to discuss his campaign. thas that is tonight at 9:00 p.m. only on cnn. now to the iran nuclear deal.t is tonight at 9:00 p.m. only on cnn. now to the iran nuclear deal. another top democrat coming out against it. this time, it's new jersey senator bob menendez, the senior member of the foreign relations committee. he says the deal allows iran to use the money it gains to
2:06 am
further destabilize the region. so how could the senator's opposition hurt the president's effort to get lawmakers on board? cnn's senior white house correspondent jim acosta tells us. >> reporter: christine, the list of democrats coming out against the iran deal is growing, as expected. the senate foreign relations committee's former chairman bob menendez announced his opposition to the nuclear agreement and joining senator chuck schumer who has also sided against the deal. here is what senator menendez had to say about his opposition to this deal. >> i have looked into my own self and my decision to principle may unfortunately lead me to a an popular course, but if iran is to acquire an nuclear bomb, it will not have my name on it. >> reporter: menendez is hardly the biggest setback for the white house. that distinction goes to republican senator jeff flake who likely ended any white house hopes for bipartisan support for the deal. a white house official did say that the president is engaged on this issue, while he is on vacation here at martha's vineyard adding, quote, we remain confident that ultimately a majority of democrats in both the house and the senate will support this deal.
2:07 am
that is critical, as republicans face an uphill battle, needing 11 more democratic senators to defy the president, vote to block the agreement, and then join gop efforts to override any presidential vetoes. that is not to mention the dozens of democratic defections republicans are also seeking in the house, which explains why senate majority leader mitch mcconnell was quoted by reporters in kentucky this week saying the president has a great likelihood of success. christine? >> jim acosta, thanks. >> bangkok's erawan shrine is back open this morning two days after that deadly pipe bomb attack. investigators are hunting for the man believed to be responsible. a police spokesman now saying authorities are, quote, very sure sure this man here in the yellow shirt, is the bomber. this morning, thailand offering a big reward for helping track him down. cnn's saima moosin is live in bangkok this morning. you are near the shrine where
2:08 am
this attack happened just two days ago. >> reporter: yes, christine, the shrine has opened up two days after that dreadful bomb attack. people coming here to pay their respects. they are lighting incense and saying their prayers and leaving flowers right around here. we have seen people, locals, foreigners come here and that is what this shrine is all about, christine. it's about people of all religions and no religion coming. people from all over the world coming together, which is why there was so many international tourists caught up in this bombing and that is why we are now seeing high visibility of policing as well. that is the name of the game now for the government. they want people to feel secure. they want them to be safe and they are saying that every police officer around the city is being deployed. anyone who is available. take a look at why, christine. the damage from that blast has torn through the windows so high up of this upscale mall.
2:09 am
this area is -- actually, a major crossroads and arterial road and intersection and train station and shopping malls on each corner and why this is so central in this area. now, that bombing you mentioned, believed to be the main suspect, he came into this shrine. he is identified as the man in the yellow shirt. he stood and looked around for a while, observed what was going on and then the backpack he was wearing, he took off and left to be what we believe under a bench. there are benches lining all the way around this shrine. left it under the bench and then ctv footage saw him leaving without that backpack. they believe he planted that bomb inside the backpack. they are on the hunt for this man. new information, as you say, 1 million reward released.
2:10 am
that is about over $30,000. the sketch released today of what they believe he looks like. they are trying to piece together more imagery of this man and asking the public, like police did after the boston bombing after that marathon attack, asking people for footage from their mobile phones and photographs, trying to bring it together and because there is so many people here taking pictures, filming what is going on, they are hoping they can piece together more evidence, more imagery and because they believe this man was not acting alone, they are trying to find his accomplices too. >> we hope there is a lot of cell phone footage to help them put those pieces together and refine that picture if they need to. thank you for that. 10 minutes past the hour and time for an early start on your money. stocks around the world mostly lower. asian shares down worried about the china's economy and a

at least it looks like some improvement. going from 90 in the northwest to the 70s. unfortunately with all of this comes gusty wind and the concern around the fire threat over the western portion of the u.s. look at this footage. this is coming out of an area near the soto fire in boise, idaho. what is known as a fire tornado developing over this region. in fact, it's nothing exactly like a tornado. you get differences in air masses that create tornadoes, but in this case you have tremendous heat rising from the flames in the vicinity around 2,000 degrees fahrenheit and turbulent weather in the vicinity of this area picks it up and brings rotation with these columns of air that is in this firenado as it's known. has the potential to cause large-scale damage and it brings debris with it and lofting it. and causing additional fires. what the firefighters have to deal with when you're talking about starting spot fires downstream. across the eastern part of

another brawl erupting at an nfl training camp.
2:23 am
this time it was between the cowboys and the rams. andy scholes has more in this morning's "bleacher report." >> earlier this month we saw a couple of big fights break out when the texans and redskins practiced together. the cowboys and rams took it to another level. two teams were holding their second joint practice in oxnard, california, and two fights would break out between them. this is video from the second fight. you can see punches flying, players going to the ground. dez bryant ran in there at one point. he actually got punched right in the face p.m. as y. this fight spills into the fans who were watching on the side. coaches decided to end practice after this fight. cowboys gm steven jones says something needs to be done about this if teams want to continue to practice with one another during training deflategate sag this morning. the judge richard berman said

from iowa. after iowa protested, the little league world series decided to have a one-game playoff between the two teams and, guess what. iowa would come out on top in this one beating washington 4-3 to advance to the semifinals. iowa to lose to rhode island in the semifinals game so they are also just like washington. the moral of this story is you play to win the game! you never play to lose. if you do, bad things are going to happen. >> even if the rules are crazy. you play to win the game! >> thanks so much. hillary clinton on the defensive bombarded, bombarded by new questions about her use of e-mail as secretary of state. how she is responding, next. when you're not confident you have complete visibility into your business, it can quickly become the only thing you think about. that's where at&t can help.

♪ ♪ hillary clinton making jokes, even as she is bombarded with questions over her e-mail use as secretary of state. how the campaign is handling the controversy this morning. another democratic senator coming out against the iran nuclear deal. how this new opposition could hurt the president's plan ahead. happening now. a manhunt to find the person behind a deadly bombing in bangkok. we are live with the new developments. welcome back to "early start." i'm christine romans. john berman hat morning off. half past the hour. up first this morning, hillary clinton defending herself as questions mount about her private e-mail server. she took questions from reporters after a town hall event in nevada. clinton repeating her stance. she never sent, she never
2:30 am
received anything marked classified from that priest e-mail account. but she also says she does not know if her private server was ever wiped clean. this following an nbc news report that an attempt was made to clear the server before it was turned over to the fbi and the bureau is looking to recover any data. clinton now becoming testing with reporters over this repeated questioning about the server. >> my personal e-mails are my personal business, right? so that is all i can say. >> you wiped the server? >> i'm not -- you know, i have no idea. that's why we turned it over. >> you said you were in charge of it. you were the official in charge. did you wipe the server? >> like, with a cloth or something? >> i don't know. you know how it works digitally. >> i don't know how it works digitally at all. >> cnn's senior washington correspondent jeff zeleny has more. >> good morning, christine. hillary clinton was defiant on tuesday night at a campaign stop in nevada, saying she did not
2:31 am
send or receive any e-mail messages their marked classified. she was there for a town hall meeting, but she took questions from reporters afterwards and the e-mail questions dominated the conversation. >> whether it was a personal account or a government account, i did not send classified material and i did not receive any material that was marked or designated classified, which is the way you know whether something is. what you're seeing now is a disagreement between agencies saying, you know what. they should of and the other saying no, they shouldn't. that has nothing to do with me. if it had been a government account and i said, release it, we would be having the same arguments. >> reporter: of course, she is facing questions from reporters, congressional hearings are just around the corner and even a justice department investigation about this ongoing e-mail controversy is still in front of her. this all goes back to her decision to use a private e-mail server while she was secretary of state. now running for president is all about navigating obstacles and she sure has a few in front of her.
2:32 am
of course, she has many advantages. she is the front running candidate, she is some 20 points ahead of senator bernie sanders of vermont but she does have obstacles. whether it's the black lives matter activists that have been following her and other democratic presidential candidates around, or if it's answering questions for yet another day about the controversy over that private e-mail server she decided to use as secretary of state. she is defiant saying she did nothing wrong and she closed her time in nevada saying, i know there is a certain level of anxiety or interest in this, but the facts are the facts. christine, i can tell you those questions will keep on going as she keeps on campaigning. back to you. >> thank you, jeff, for that. on the republican side, candidates are converging on new hampshire today. jon kasich, jeb bush, chris christie and bobby jindal all scheduled to speak at an educational summit. donald trump is holding the first town hall event. no doubt immigration will be on that agenda. that is a cornerstone of his agenda and forcing much of the
2:33 am
gop field to tackle this notoriously sticky subject. candidates are weighing in both for and against the elements of the trump's agenda. >> what about the 14th amendment to the constitution which the courts have said automatically grant citizenship to children born in the united states, even if their parents are here illegally? >> well, i think that's going to require a little bit more discussion. the fact is that we have operated under that assumption really since the 1800s. and to change it, it would require some strong will, either on the part of the president. >> our southern-based border is being penetrated every single day by drug cartels and pushing drugs, firearms, human trafficking, and no sovereign nation should be in position with that happening. as president, i'm going to secure the border once and for all, and i will uphold the laws of the great united states of america. >> i don't agree with that. i certainly think we have to do a better job of preventing. i'm opening to prevent things to prevent people from deliberately coming to the u.s. and
2:34 am
purposely taking advantage of the 14th amendment, but i'm not in favor of appealing it. >> the idea we would go out in cars and hunt people down, it's not doable and, secondly, i don't think it's right! i don't think it's humane! >> this constitutionally protected right and i don't support revoking it. there is a way to use leadership to solve abuses for people that are coming into the country, having children so that their children can be citizens. that is a legitimate problem. in a targeted way, you can deal with this issue, but to suggest that people born in this country are not united states citizens and they don't have this in the constitution, i just reject out of hand. >> be sure to join us tonight for a cnn special report, the donald trump interview. the republican front-runner sits down with chris cuomo to discuss his campaign. this is tonight, 9:00 eastern, only on cnn. now to the iran nuclear deal. another top democrat coming out against that agreement.
2:35 am
this time, it's new jersey senator bob menendez, the senior member of the foreign relations committee. he says the deal allows iran to use the money it gains to further destabilize the region. so how could the senator's opposition hurt the president's effort to get lawmakers on board? cnn's senior white house correspondent jim acosta tells us. >> reporter: christine, the list of democrats coming out against the iran deal is growing, as expected. the senate foreign relations committee's former chairman bob menendez announced his opposition to the nuclear agreement and joining senator chuck schumer who has also sided against the deal. here is what senator menendez had to say about his opposition to this deal. >> i have looked into my own self and my devotion to principle may unfortunately lead me to a an popular course, but if iran is to acquire a nuclear bomb, it will not have my name on it. >> reporter: menendez is hardly the biggest setback of the week for the white house. that distinction goes to republican senator jeff flake who likely ended any white house hopes for bipartisan support for the deal.
2:36 am
a white house official did say that the president is engaged on this issue, while he is on vacation here at martha's vineyard adding, quote, we remain confident that ultimately a majority of democrats in both the house and the senate will support this deal. that is critical, as republicans face an uphill battle, needing 11 more democratic senators to defy the president, vote to block the agreement, and then join gop efforts to override any presidential vetoes. that is not to mention the dozens of democratic defections republicans are also seeking in the house, which explains why senate majority leader mitch mcconnell was quoted by reporters in kentucky this week saying the president has a great likelihood of success. christine? >> jim acosta, thanks. >> bangkok's erawan shrine is back open this morning two days after a deadly pipe bomb attack. investigators are hunting for the man believed to be responsible. there he is. a police spokesman now saying authorities are, quote, very sure this man here in the yellow shirt, is the bomber. this morning, thailand offering a big reward for helping track
2:37 am
him down. cnn's saima moosin is live in bong dock. you are there near the shrine where this attack happened just two days ago. >> reporter: yeah. the shrine has final opened up and people coming and lighting their incense on the lamp and they take it over to the shrine, say a prayer, take some flowers as well. a lot of flowers here today. it's normally a busy shrine, but we have seen a lot of people, much more somber mood coming to pay their respects today, christine. in fact, actually, the shrine here was dedicated to the lord poro but all people come here. it also has shrapnel marks, some kind of damage from that bombing. such was the velocity of that attack. as you say, they are looking for the man behind that attack. the man that we have seen in the
2:38 am
cc-tv footage, a sketch released today, christine, of him. a young looking man with sloppy hair and slightly asian looking. they want to find this man. but they believe he was is not acting alone. they have released a statement saying they will also offer a reward of more than $30,000 for anyone who can help lead to his arrest. now, police have also asked for a warrant for his arrest should he be found. they plan to charge him with intents to kill and making a bomb. they can do that without having the suspect's identification or name. so as it stands, there is a reward out for his arrest. they believe he wasn't acting alone. and they have a warrant ready for him. >> we certainly hope all of that cell phone video can be pulled together to refine that image and find that suspect.
2:39 am
