tv   CNN Newsroom With Carol Costello  CNN  September 9, 2015 6:00am-8:01am PDT

6:00 am
that is? >> this is a beautiful example. thank you chloe and grandma. it's time for "newsroom" and carol costello. good morning. good morning. "newsroom" starts now. good morning. i'm carol costello. thank you so much for joining me. we begin today with hillary clinton speaks out on the iran deal one day after finally apologizing for using a private server while she was secretary of state. these are life pive pictures fr walk. but also urged lawmakers to be, quote, clear-eyed about iran's behavior going forward. she tries to turn the page on the e-mail controversy that has over shadowed her campaign. jeff zeleny joins me now with
6:01 am
more. >> reporter: the obama administration's iran nuclear agreement is a welcome change of subject for hillary clinton today. now, she of course helped open the door to these negotiations with iran when she was secretary of state. but it's her decision to set up a private e-mail account to use at the state department that is still causing her so much grief. she's gone from defiant to now being contrite. this is what he said last night. >> even know it wthough it was i should have used two accounts, one for personal, one for work-related e-mails. that was a mistake. i'm taking responsibility and i try to be as transparent as i possibly can. >> reporter: she amplified this on a message on her facebook page. she said, i know this is a complex story. i could have and should have done a better job answering
6:02 am
questions earlier. i'm grateful for your support and i'm not taking anything for granted. now, this is a dose of humility for the clinton campaign as she tries to rebuild something she lost over the summer. that's trust and credibility with some of those voters. carol. >> and hillary clinton is supposed to speak actually in just about eight minutes on this iran deal. and i know she's trying to change her image because she ree's trying to make her image softer, which is probably why she apologized. but with this particular appearance she wants to appear presidential. >> reporter: no doubt about it. carol, so interesting on this, she did start brokering this iran deal when she was secretary of state, opening the door to some of these communications that paved the way for this. she's not had a chance to talk much about it. that's why is this speech is so interesting today.
6:03 am
it's a contrast to what's happening just across down on capitol hill where donald trump, ted cruz and sarah palin are going to be blasting the arrangement. this speech is a moment for her to put this controversy aside and talk about substance for once. . today the embattled kentucky clerk who refused to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples is taking a day of rest to be with her family. that's according to kim davis's legal team who says she will return to work on friday or monday. she was locked up because of refusing to issue licenses because of her religious beli beliefs. >> you're a strong people! we serve a living god who knows exactly where each and every one of us is at.
6:04 am
just keep on pressing. don't let down. because he is here. i love you guys. thank you so much. [ cheers and applause ] >> republican hopeful mike huckabee taking center stage at that rally standing side by side with davis. earlier today he talked with alisyn camerota and said davis will not violate her conscience. >> the supreme court can't make law. they can interpret law. but they can't make it. only congress can make law. the dread scott decision of 1857 said black people weren't fully human. i don't think anybody would like to go back and say that's the law of the land. it's never been repealed but it was soundly ignored.
6:05 am
there's a basic understanding of what it means to follow the constitution. >> a judge has ordered davis not to interfere with her deputies issuing same-sex marriage licenses. the european union now revealing a quota plan, imploring leaders in 22 countries to provide shelter for the hundreds of thousands of syrians fleeing in desperation. pressure mounting on the united states as we continue to see stunning scenes like these. growing outrage after a hungarian camera woman is caught tripping a sprinting migrant. she then kicks another person. the news site has fired her, calling her behavior completely unacceptable. arwa damon is along the serbia-hungary border with more. >> reporter: right here we have another scene that is a byproduct of these refugees and
6:06 am
migrants once again pushing their way through police blockades. they did this begin at the hoag holding center. on this bus is a family that we met a short while ago. if we go a bit closer we might be able to see them and say hi. they're from kobani in syria. this is that town just across the border from turkey where last year there was fierce intense fighting between isis and the kurdish fighting force. the family fled back then when isis was eventually pushed back. they returned to kobani and then isis launched several smaller scale attacks, trying to retake kobani and that was when they finally decided to leave. this family's story is incredible. the mother was pregnant when she was aboard the dingy.
6:07 am
in fact, she was almost due. when the dingy finally arrived on greece's shores she couldn't walk any longer. she began getting contractions. she gave birth in greece. then she walked the entire day with what is now an 11 day old baby. this just shows you the lengths to which some of these families will go in their attempt to secure a future for themselves. but for many more importantly secure a future for their children. >> oh my goodness. that is one strong woman. arwa damon reporting live for us this morning. thank you so much. there is growing pressure on the united states to do more. here's how the numbers break down. of the some 4.4 million syrian refugees, nearly half are now residing in turkey. 1.1 million in lebanon. hundreds of thousands of others are in neighboring countries. what about north america? 10,000 syrians have resettled in canada. that number drops to 1500 here in the united states.
6:08 am
the obama administration says it's considering bringing in more, noting that the united states has provided over $4 billion in humanitarian aid since the crisis began. still to come in the "newsroom," hillary clinton's iran speech in minutes. could this moment be a game-changer? and baltimore officials voting right now on the $6.4 million settlement with the freddie gray family. how would this affect the trials that are soon to be held? diabetes, steady is exciting. only glucerna has carbsteady, clinically proven to help minimize blood sugar spikes. so you stay steady ahead.

6:12 am
very soon -- actually these are live pictures out of washington where hillary clinton is expected to deliver remarks on iran. as soon as she takes the podium, we'll take you back to washington life. . now to baltimore, though. soon we'll hear from that city's mayor on a 6.4 dollar proposed
6:13 am
settlement to the family of freddie gray. the city accepts responsibility for his death but does not acknowledge any wrongdoing by police. in a statement the police union, it ripped the timing of the settlement writing, quote, to suggest there is any reason to settle prior to adjudication of the pending criminal cases is obscene and without regard to the fiduciary responsibility owed to the tax paying citizens of the city. there has been no civil litigation -- miguel marquez is in baltimore outside of city hall. >> reporter: i think the mayor is going to tell us why she thinks it was prudent and smart to do it right now. this will certainly further divide an already divided city.
6:14 am
it already is both sides of the spectrum, saying that it is either too much money and it comes at the exact wrong time or they should have held out and gotten a lot more. lawyers from the freddie gray family likely would have filed suit in federal court seeking many more millions of dollars, the lawyers and the mayor will say. so doing it now was heading off a long and tough and expensive legal battle for the state. the problem is that there is a change of venue hearing for those six officers tomorrow and people believe that this will deeply affect the judge's decision about whether or not those individuals can get a fair trial here. at his hearing last week, the judge suggested that he could probably get -- or at least go through the process of trying to get a jury in baltimore before deciding to move it elsewhere. now that may change his opinion. the board that has to approve this thing was meant to start meeting about 15 minutes ago.
6:15 am
they are delayed. that may mean something. they expected to approve it. and then it will set off a chain reaction across the city. the mayor are speak. the attorney for the family of freddie gray will speak. pastors will come out. there is lots of discussion and talk in the neighborhood about what this settlement means for the gray family and for the city. an interesting time in a city that has been under fire for many months now. >> is there any indication at all right now, before this press conference by the mayor, why the city decided to settle so early? why didn't it just wait? >> reporter: the concern was if they waited, because there are caps on state settlements in the state of maryland, if they waited and all of that stuff came out during trials and the lawyers for freddie gray's family had all that information years down the road, that it would have amounted to much more. they would have filed in federal
6:16 am
court where there's no caps. they would have sought much more money. it would have been $6 million or more just to fight it legally, just to pay the lawyers. and they wouldn't have ended up on the right side of this. i may tthink the mayor, the gra family, they all wanted it done. the mayor approached the family with this settlement and they took it and it's done as far as they're concerned. >> we'll get back to you when the mayor starts speaking. hillary clinton is expecting to speak on iran and that nuclear deal in moments. when she takes the podium we'll go back to washington but i've got to take a break. i'll be back with much more in the "newsroom." it's a fact. kind of like mute buttons equal danger. ...that sound good? not being on this phone call sounds good. it's not muted. was that you jason? it was geoffrey! it was jason. it could've been brenda. ...you want to eat, who wants to (woman) you weat... eat... (dog) do i want to eat?
6:17 am
yes, i want to eat. (woman) do you want to eat? (dog) do i want to eat, yes. that's like nine times you've asked...yes. i mean it's beneful. i can actually see the meaty chunks and carrots right there...look at it. it's beautiful. mmmmmmm, thank you so much... but you know tomorrow night... ...how 'bout we just assume i do want to eat... ...you know speed things up a little.

6:21 am
>> also, bob ein hohorn and tam. i appreciate strobe's reference to the event last night and the continuing dialogue about urgent issues facing our nation and the world. that's what brings me here today. back to brookings to talk about the question we're all grappling with, how to prevent iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. and more broadly, how to protect ourselves and our allies from the full range of threats that iran poses. the stakes are high and there are no simple or perfectly satisfying solutions. so these questions and in particular the merits of the nuclear deal recently reached with iran have divided people of goodwill and raised hard issues on both sides. here's how i see it.
6:22 am
either we move forward on the path of diplomacy and seize this chance to block iran's path to a nuclear weapon. or we turn down a more dangerous path leading to a far less certain and riskier future. that's why i support this deal. i support it as part of a larger strategy toward iran. by now the outcome in congress is no longer in much doubt, so we've got to start looking ahead to what comes next, enforcing the deal, deterring iran and its proxies and strengthening our allies. these will be my goals as president. and today i want to talk about how i would achieve them. let me start by saying i understand the skepticism so many feel about iran. i too am deeply concerned about iranian aggression and the need
6:23 am
to confront it. it's a ruthless, brutal regime that has the blood of americans, many others including its own people on its hands. its political rallies resound with cries of "death to america." its leaders talk about wiping israel off the face of the map, most recently just yesterday. and foment terror against it. there is absolutely no reason to trust iran. now, vice president cheney may hope that the american people will simply forget, but the truth is by the time president obama took office and i became secretary of state, iran was racing toward a nuclear capability. th mastered the nuclear fuel cycle, meaning they had the material, scientists and technical know-how to create
6:24 am
material for nuclear weapons. they had produced and installed thousands of centrifuges, expanded their secret facilities, established a robust uranium enrichment program and defied their international obligations under the nuclear nonproliferation treaty. and they hadn't suffered many consequences. i voted for sanctions again and again as a senator from new york. but they weren't having much affe effect. we needed to step up our game. so president obama and i pursued a two-pronged strategy, pressure and engagement. we made it clear that the door to diplomacy was open if iran answered the concerns of the international community in a serious and credible way. we simultaneously launched a comprehensive campaign to
6:25 am
significantly raise the cost of iranian defiance. we systematically increased our military capabilities in the region, daeepening our cooperation with partners and sending additional fire power, battleship, strike aircraft and most advanced radar and missile defense systems available. meanwhile, i traveled the world, capital by capital, leader by leader, twisting arms to help build the global coalition that produced some of the most effective sanctions in history. with president obama's leadership we worked with congress and the european union to cut iran off from the world's economic and financial system. and one by one, we persuaded energy-hungry consumers of iranian oil, like india and south korea, to cut back. soon, iran's tankers sat rusting in port. its economy was collapsing.
6:26 am
these new measures were effective because we made them global. american sanctions provided the foundation, but iran didn't really feel the heat until we turned this into an international campaign. so biting that iran had no choice but to negotiate. they could no longer playoff one country against another. they had no place to hide. so they started looking for a way out. i first visited oman to speak with the sultan of oman in january of 2011. went back later that year. the sultan helped set up a secret back channel. i sent one of my closest aides as part of a small team to begin talks with the iranians in secret. negotiations began in earnest after the election of 2015.
6:27 am
first the talks lead by bill burns and jake sullivan that lead to the interim zbreemt. th now there's a comprehensive agreement on iran's nuclear program. is it perfect? well, of course not. no agreement like this ever is. but is it a strong agreement? yes, it is. and we absolutely should not turn it down. the merits of the deal have been well argued so i won't go through them in great detail here. the bottom line is that it accomplished the major goals we set out to achieve. it blocks every pathway for iran to get a bomb. and it gives us better tools for verification and inspection and to compel rigorous compliance. without a deal, iran's breakout
6:28 am
time, how long they need to produce enough material for a nuclear weapon would shrink to a couple of months. with a deal, that breakout time stretches to a year, which means that if iran cheats, we'll know it and we'll have time to respond decisively. without a deal, we would have no credible inspections of iran's nuclear facilities. with a deal, we'll have unprecedented access. we'll be able to monitor every aspect of their nuclear program. some have expressed concern that certain nuclear restrictions expire after 15 years. and we need to be vigilant about that, which i'll talk more about in a moment. but other parts are preermanent including iran's commitment to enhanced inspections under the additional protocol.
6:29 am
others have expressed concern that it could take up to 24 days to gain access to some of iran's facilities when we suspect cheating. i'd be the first to say that this part of the deal is not perfect. although the deal was allow for daily access to enrichment facilities and monitoring of the entire nuclear fuel cycle. it's important to focus on that, because being able to monitor the supply chain is critical to what we will find out and how we will be able to respond. but our experts tell us that even with delayed access to some places, this deal does the job. microscopic nuclear particles remain for years and years. they are impossible to hide.
6:30 am
that's why secretary moniz has confidence in this plan. some have suggested that we just go back to the negotiating table and get a better, unspecified deal. i can certainly understand why that may sound appealing. but as someone who started these talks in the first place and built our global coalition piece by piece, i can assure you it is not realistic. plus, if we walk away now, our capacity to sustain and enforce sanctions will be severely diminished. we will be blamed, not the iranians. so if we were to reject this agreement, iran would be poised to get nearly everything it wants without giving up a thing. no restrictions on their nuclear program. no real warning if teheran suddenly rushes toward a bomb. and the international sanctions regime would fall apart, so no more economic consequences for
6:31 am
iran either. those of us who have been out there on the diplomatic front lines know that diplomacy is not the pursuit of perfection. it's the balancing of risk. and on balance, the far riskier course right now would be to walk away. great powers can't just junk agreements and expect the rest of the world to go along with us. we need to be reasonable and consistent and we need to keep our word, especially when we're trying to lead a coalition. that's how we'll make this and future deals work. but it's not enough just to say yes to this deal. of course it isn't. we have to say yes and, yes and we will enforce it with vigor and vigilance. yes and we will embed it in a broader strategy to confront iran's bad behavior in the region. yes and we will begin from day
6:32 am
one to set the conditions so iran knows it will never be able to get a nuclear weapon, not during the term of the agreement, not after, not ever. we need to be clear. and i think we have to make that very clear to iran about what we expect from them. this is not the start of some larger diplomatic opening. and we shouldn't expect that this deal will lead to broader changes in their behavior. that shouldn't be a promise for proceeding. instead, we need to be prepared for three scenarios. first, iran tries to cheat, something it's been quite willing to do in the past. second, iran tries to wait us out. perhaps it waits to move for 15 years when some, but not all restrictions expire.
6:33 am
and third, iran ramps up its dangerous behavior in the region including its support for terrorist groups like hamas and hezbollah. i believe that the success of this deal has a lot to do with how the next president grapples with these challenges. let me tell you what i would do. my starting point will be one of distrust. you remember president reagan's line about the societies. trust, but verify? my approach will be distrust and verify. we should anticipate that iran will test the next president. they'll want to see how far they can bend the rules. that won't work if i'm in the white house. i'll hold the line against iranian noncompliance. that means penalties even for small violations. keeping our allies on board, but being willing to snap back sanctions into place
6:34 am
unilaterally if we have to. working with congress to close any gaps in the sanctions. right now members of congress are offering proposals to that effect. and i think the current administration should work with them to see whether there are additional steps that could be taken. finally, it means ensuring that the i.a.e.a. has the resources its needs, from finances to personnel to equipment to hold iran's feet to the fire. but the most important thing we can do to keep iran from cheating or trying to wait us out is to shape iranian expectations right from the start. the iranians and the world need to understand that we will act decisively if we need to. so here's my message to iran's leaders. the united states will never allow you to acquire a nuclear weapon. as president, i will take
6:35 am
whatever actions are necessary to protect the united states and our allies. i will not hesitate to take military action if iran attempts to obtain a nuclear weapon. and i will set up my successor to be able to credibly make the same pledge. our national commitment to prevention will not waiver depending on who's in office. it's permanent. should it become necessary in the future, having exhausted peaceful at telternatives to tuo military force, we will have preserved and in some cases enhanced our capacity to act. because we've proven our commitment to diplomacy first, the world will more likely join us. then there's broader issue of countering iran's bad behavior across the region. taking nuclear weapons out of
6:36 am
the equation is crucial. because an iran with nuclear weapons is so much more dangerous than an iran without them. but even without nuclear weapons, we still see iran's fingerprints on nearly every conflict across the middle east. >> we're going to break away from this press conference held by hillary clinton talking about the iranian nuclear deal. and we'll analyze it. but i've got to do that after a break. i'll be right back with more in the "newsroom."
6:37 am
6:38 am
what did iran's supreme leader get in the nuclear deal? to start with, $100 billion. they keep their nuclear facilities and ballistic missiles. there won't be surprise anytime-anywhere inspections. and after ten years, restrictions are lifted and iran could build a nuclear weapon in two months. congress should reject a bad deal. we need a better deal. so you're a small business expert from at&t? yeah, give me a problem and i've got the solution. well, we have 30 years of customer records. our cloud can keep them safe and accessible anywhere. my drivers don't have time to fill out forms. tablets. keep it all digital. we're looking to double our deliveries. our fleet apps will find the fastest route. oh, and your boysenberry apple scones smell about done. ahh, you're good. i like to bake. add new business services with at&t and get up to $500 in total savings.

6:40 am
6:41 am
hillary clinton speaking in washington on why she supports the iranian deal. her signature line today, distrust, but verify. she would send a message to iran, as president, that if they violated the deal, she would use military force if necessary. cnn is covering all angles of the story. thanks to all of you for being with me to try to analyze this speech and dig a little deeper.
6:42 am
jeff, i want to start with you, because one of the most surprising things that hillary clinton said, either we move on the path of diplomacy with this iran deal or we take on a much riskier road. she didn't say if we didn't follow through the iran deal it would lead to war as president obama has said. >> she did say that, carol. but what she made clear in this speech was that there are severe repercussions if the u.s. were to back away from this deal. this is not just a deal reached with washington and tehran, but much of the globe here. the deal is essentially done in terms of having enough support in congress to support the president's move on this and to block any attempt to override it. i think what this moment is,
6:43 am
carol, it's a good and appropriate pause in this very chaotic presidential campaign we've seen that points out that presidential campaigns matter. whether you support this deal or don't support this deal, we'll hearplenty from the other side this afternoon. she's absolutely right about whoever the next occupant of the white house, it's going to be someone they are going to own and inherit this. this is a very important day, important speech, important topic. >> and jeff is right, elise, because donald trump is going to hold a rally this afternoon and he says he's going to renegotiate the deal. is it possible to renegotiate this deal? >> in short, carol, no. look, there's a lot that's said on these campaigns about renegotiating a deal, about violating the deal and kind of ending it. once this deal is in train, it's
6:44 am
going top impossible for the international community to walk it back. and they're not going to want to. everyone's eager to get back to business with iran. i think what secretary clinton did in this speech is, look, she took credit a little bit for bringing iran to this point. you know, she was involved in the creation of sanctions in the obama administration and she also was as secretary of state with her aide started those secret talks with iran. what she did was, she took credit for it, but said then we have to take it a little bit further. this is not the start of some broader diplomatic opening. we shouldn't expect this deal to lead to a broader change in their behavior. she talks about the deal plus. how can you strengthen u.s. efforts to secure israel, to secure the gulf states, to counter some of iran's proxies. this administration is talking in broad strokes, but clinton
6:45 am
puts a little bit of meat on the bones where as president she says she would make sure this deal is enforceable not obviously about iran's nuclear program but about countering some of iran's other behavior in the region. >> i know hillary clinton is still speaking but she didn't do much to allay the fears that many americans have. say iran is prevented from developing a nuclear weapon, but it can now because all this money will be infused into iran because the sanctions will be lifted, it could buy other kinds of weapons and destabilize that region even more. >> well, i have been a bit lukewarm on this deal, but i think she offered assurances that the nonnuclear component of the deal, iran's behavior and support in syria for hamas and hezbollah, its attacks on israel, its messing around in the region, releasing hostages,
6:46 am
four american hostages, that she would be an enforcer and she would extend the deal to ensure that iran's behavior is critical. and i think also she takes credit for what brought iran to the table, oil sanctions, access to international financing. she worked relentlessly to make that happen. and at the same time she can say that she supports the president. she's loyal to the president. but i think what is being missed here is her statement that we would use military action. you know, right now if there's a violation, we say military action is on the table. i thought she said very clearly that to block iran's path to go to get nuclear weapons, she would use military action. that was very, i believe, presidential. i think this is a turning point in her campaign with the apole -- apology on the issue of the
6:47 am
e-mails. and now iran focusing in the congress, the vote. i think she's turned the page in the campaign and she'll regain the momentum that perhaps was lost with this e-mail issue. >> do you think so? because she did apologize on abc news for her use of a private server during the time when she was secretary of state. she also teared up a bit. and i found that interesting too. >> well, she did. i think that was necessary, the apologize, you know, although in my view i think the fact that secretary powell used the private server, that it was legal at the time, that it created a lot of confusion. i think the american people want to hear, okay, a mistake was made, i was sorry. ho hopefully it will put aside that issue. i doubt it, but it's a major step. a president, the main responsibility is protecting the
6:48 am
country, national security. she was presidential. foreign policy is her wheelhouse. she was a good secretary of state. it was a well delivered speech. it talked about israel. hopefully the jewish community, which is traditionally democratic, will start moving back with the democrats. >> i've got to take a break. we'll be back with much more in the "newsroom." diabetes, steady is exciting. only glucerna has carbsteady, clinically proven to help minimize blood sugar spikes. so you stay steady ahead.

6:52 am
i want to take you to ba baltimore now where mayor stephanie rawlings-blake is going to the address city after
6:53 am
the voters voted to approve a $6.4 million settlement with the family of freddie gray and this is after the change of venue for the trial of the six officers involved in the case. this is along with the former assistant u.s. attorney for district of columbia joining us, and i want to start with paul callan, because the police department is furious about this, and the criminal case has not been heard yet, and they believe it is poisoning the well. >> yes, a number of people who work in this field were very, very surprised by the settlement, because it is sending the message in advance of a number of very, very important criminal trials that the city of baltimore has made up the mind that the cops were in the wrong, and if you are struggling to keep the case in ba
6:54 am
baltimore, i don't believe that is the case that you want to send the message to the judge that we are sending a very public judge. so it is a surprising thing to do, and you can settle the cases after the criminal trial which is when they are usually settled. >> laura, why didn't city of baltimore just wait? >> well, you know, it is interesting they didn't just wait. there was no civil suit brought yet by the family, and they could have waited. what they were trying to do is to essentially try to avoid what happened the day before in cleveland with, i believe kenneth smith when he had a civil suit against the off-duty officer for $6 million, and the city was trying to preemt other suits against the city, but paul is exactly right, it is going to send a message that is going to be very difficult to find an impartial jury to say that we on
6:55 am
behalf of the officers paid $6 million to the family because of a wrongdoing, and it is very difficult to find an impartial jury at this point. >> i suppose that the junl could say, you are not allowed to mention it in court with six cases, but the whole city is going to be paying attention to the hot button case that affects them. >> and the judge is going to say not to watch television, and not to follow it, but of course, everybody going to be following it, and they severed all of the six cases instead of trying them together, they are going to be having six separate trials, and so you can imagine the building publicity, and how in the world could you get a fair trial in baltimore. >> okay. say the first trial takes place, and the officer is cleared, but the city of baltimore has deemed this officer guilty and they have a problem with rioting h in the city of baltimore, and what
6:56 am
might that do? >> it will have a negative impact on the city's morale, and that is the reason that there have been issues around the nation when there is a drop in the morale and the fundamental mistrust and the clearly the system of justice has evolved, because consistent examples where the officers are exonerated, so you will have, and if an officer is in fact cleared given this high s settlement, it is going to spur additional mistrust for the criminal justice system when there is a police department. >> all right. th thanks so much, and again, we are waiting for baltimore mayor to speakers and laura coates and paul callan, stick around and we will get your take on what she says. more cnn newsroom after the break.

good morning. i'm carol costello, and thank you for joining me. we are watching two live events for you. first the mayor of baltimore, stephanie rawlings-blake, and talk about why the city decided to settle with the freddie gray family for $6.4 million, and it is a settlement that has enraged the police union. and then you can see that hillary clinton is talking about her support for president obama's iranian nuclear deal. and we will talk about how the support of her being very strong about it. what did you get from her statement? >> she was very strong in her support, and she said they should have all of the candidates be very strong to pledge their support or walk away. and there were hardly a soft
7:02 am
glove on iran calling it a ruthless and brutal regime, and she was ready to take on the regime the if elected president. >> my approach is distrust and veri verify. we we should anticipate that iran will test the next president. they'll want to see how far they can bend the rules. that won't work if i'm in the white house. >> and also a reminder that these presidential campaigns that we watch everyday are important, and about something regardless of the point of view, and we will see the other point of view this afternoon on capitol hill when donald trump and ted cruz and sarah palin testifies against this deal, and so there is going to be enough support against this deal, and so there is going to be a real cause and effect many this presidential campaign that is a campaign that seems not as serious. >> i wanted to point out the
7:03 am
settin settings, because mr. trump is going to be surrounded by sarah palin and glenn beck and mark levin who has called the president's iranian deal as sowing the seeds of world war iii, and so this is a very different type of event as the one that hillary clinton is h d holding right now. >> yes, so many much passion against this deal because of the support of israel, and carol, important to point out many democratic skeptics as well. chuck schumer who is trying to be the top democratic leader of the senate does not support this deal, a sointd is very not specifically drawn down the party lines, but the reality is that it is not the u.s. and iran alone, but a world community, and this deal has been e negotiated so long, and moving forward and the speeches are
7:04 am
coming a little bit after the fact now, because there is enough support now on capitol hill to back the president. >> and jeff zeleny, many thanks to you. >> and now to the growing refugee crisis in europe. thousands of refugees are taking this route of freedom for many happening in turkey. whole families cramming on boards trying to make it to greece. ivan watson and the crew capturing this desperate group trying to escape. look at the family on the tiny boat with ivan watson, and describe what we are seeing. >> what that is, it is one of the ways that the migrants are going to use to float across the aegean sea like the greek eislad oflessbos which is the unofficial entry point for hundreds of thousands of migrants into greece. the incr is saying that there are hundreds of thousands of
7:05 am
migrants landing there on that greek island and another island of cos everyday. they have these rubber pontoon boats traveling on choppy seas. we are in a substantial swell here trying to get over to the islands, carol. here on the turkish side of the channel here, we have seen a booming smuggling business where in towns and cities, you can see the syrians on every street corners carrying around backpacks with plastic backpacks sold openly on the streets, and waiting for the smugglers to call them, and they go down to coast to wait for the smugglers to push them out into the open waters, and what is even crazier, these refugees that i have talked to in the last day or so, they have only just
7:06 am
arrived in turkey, and just flown in from syria to turkey to escape the war with the express intent to move on from greece to europe. so europe dealing with the flood of migrants tense of thousands of people, and they have to get ready, because thousands more are on the way and planning to head in that direction. carol. >> unbelievable. ivan watson reporting live on the water there in turkey. and we are seeing more pressure on the united states, because the international rescue comm committee is gathering more than 60,000 signatures on a petition pfor the u.s. government the to do more. of the 4.4 million syrian refugees, nearly half are residing in the turkey. 1.4 million in lebanon, and hundreds of thousands in neighboring countries, and in north america? 10,000 syrians have resettled in canada, 1,500 have resettled in the united states.

the obama administration is considering bringing in more noting that the u.s. has provided more than $4 billion in humanitarian aid since this crisis began. and now, we will will be hearing from the mayor of baltimore for the settlement of the city to the freddie gray family. the city will not acknowledge any wrongdoing of police, but in the meantime, a change of venue hearing is scheduled tomorrow for the six officers charged in the case. we have miguel marquez outside of city hall there this morning. good morning. >> good morning, that press conference is about to start, and all of it is happening very quickly after baltimore's board of estimates met briefly to consider the long agenda, and one added item was a simple
7:08 am
page, and third maybe of $6.4 million settlement to the freddie gray can family, and the city solicitor george nelson saying that it would keep the city from picking a scab created in april from being picked, and pick and picked over again in the years can, and the mayor has said over and over again in the meeting at the press conference that the settlement does say nothing about the guilt or the innocence of the six officers involved in this. everybody ak a cross the board saying that it has no bearing on the criminal case against those six officers, but the police union cease it different, and a lot of the police officers see it differently, and certainly a lot of people in the city see it differently, and people in the police union call it obscene, and way too early to consider a settlement, but from the mayor and the city's police point of view, look, we are facing years
7:09 am
of legal action, and facing a federal civil suit of which there is no cap for, that and we are looking at tens of millions of dollars, and the deputy solicitor general pointed to the two cases, one that was settled on the federal level of $39 million, and another one for $24 milli million, and saying that this case had all of the earmarks to hit that and if not higher so they believe that they are saving the people money, but it is hard to talk people into that in baltimore. this settlement has now divided in city more than it already was, carol. >> all right. miguel marquez, we will check back. thank you so much. the embattled kentucky clerk who refuses to marry same sex couples because of religious beliefs is now taking a little time off after after being released from jail. tuesday, her supporters rallied around her at a demonstration. >> i just wanted to say, that
7:10 am
you are a strong people. we serve a living god who knows exactly where each and every one of us is at. just keep on pressing. don't let down. because he is here. he is worthy. i love you guys. thank you so much. >> you can see mike huckabee there, and of course, he was at davis' side, and he spoke with cnn this morning, and he said that davis will continue to violate her conscious. >> and what is really outrageous, this is not just about someone being violated, but this is about someone who was sent to jail without bail, a nand is unprecedented a watershed moment when a person,
7:11 am
a elected official, and democrat, too, by the way, and this is not some republican right wing person, because democrat person elected by the people and sent to jail for her belief beliefs, and trying to carry out what she believes is the law. >> and joining me is martin savage in morehead, kentucky, and he has been following this all of this. good morning, martin. >> good morning, carol. this is a remarkable thing, i have to say. even kim davis is shocked by the developments, and clearly you could see that. and nobody thought that she would be released from jail with the way she was with the exception of the judge who knew exa exactly what was happening. and ted cruz was also, there and this is interesting, another one running from president, and you didn't hear anything from him, and you have seen the report in "the new york times" that maybe it appears one of the aides that was assisting with huckabee
7:12 am
assist ed ed in the meeting, an don't know because we didn't witness it firsthand, but clearly kim davis has struck a chord with the christians, and the fact that she has stood up, and fought for her religious fr freedom and that for others is why you can hear mike huckabee saying, this is not just what is happening in this county in kentucky, but moving forward, but it is not just will you stand up with kim, but will you stand up like kim suggesting that this kind of objection may be spread across the country in other political offices. >> scotty, i am talking to my director -- can you put up that pick chu of tture of ted cruz, was in kentucky, and he was to pick up to kim davis, and we saw
7:13 am
not hide nor hair of him sh, ane are not to question the political sincerity of these political candidates, but i am a skeptic and a cynic, martin. >> and talking to the clerk, there have been a total of ten marriage licenses that have been handed out, and given out in the absence of kim davis, and none of them have kim davis' name on it, and seven of them have gone to same sex couples, and that is the total as of today, and when you talk to the people today, there are media camped out sosi and demonstrators out there, and one of them delivered quite a religious diatribe to them, and they realize they are under the gun here so to speak, and they are doing the duties imposed on them, and i said, what is going to happen when ms. davis return, and they said, they don't know, and so it is one of those that
7:14 am
is where everybody is hanging what they don't know, and will she not issue the license, and nen we are back to those. >> and she is scheduled to appear again to work friday. martin savidge, thank you. and you could see the smoke, and one of the passengers said that the plane had just caught on fire. y insurance company understands the life behind it. those who have served our nation. have earned the very best service in return. ♪ usaa. we know what it means to serve. get an auto insurance quote and see why 92% of our members plan to stay for life.

the uncertainties i don't wantof hep c.with or wonder... ...whether i should seek treatment. i am ready. because today there's harvoni. a revolutionary treatment for the most common type of chronic hepatitis c. harvoni is proven to cure up to 99% of patients... ...who've had no prior treatment. it's the one and only cure that's... ...one pill, once a day for 12 weeks. certain patients... ...can be cured with just 8 weeks of harvoni. with harvoni, there's no interferon and there are no complex regimens. tell your doctor if you have other liver or kidney problems, or other medical conditions. and about all the medicines you take including herbal supplements. harvoni should not be taken with any medicines containing amiodarone, rifampin, or st. john's wort. it also should not be taken with any other medicine that contains sovaldi.
7:16 am
side effects may include tiredness and headache. i am ready to put hep c behind me. i am ready to be cured. are you ready? ask your hep c specialist if harvoni is right for you. spending the day with my niece. that make me smile. i don't use super poligrip for hold, because my dentures fit well. before those little pieces would get in between my dentures and my gum and it was uncomfortable. even well fitting dentures let in food particles. just a few dabs of super poligrip free is clinically proven to seal out more food particles so you're more comfortable and confident while you eat. so it's not about keeping my dentures in, it's about keeping the food particles out. try super poligrip free. all right. let's head back to baltimore where the mayor stephanie rawlings-blake is going to speak about the settlement of the city
7:17 am
with the family of freddie gray. >> i want to speak about the settlement to resolve the city in all of the potential liability of the city in the death of freddie gray. i want to talk about the decision to solve the civil claims is unrelated to the criminal case that the officers face. and the city's decision to settle the civil case should not be interpreted of passing judgment on the guilt or the innocence of the officers, and this settlement is about making the right fiscal judgment for the city of baltimore, and like every other potential claim, we have to weigh the potential cost of the cost of going to court, and the potential exposure to the city if we are unsuccessful
7:18 am
in court. and to that matter if we are successful in court, in this case, faced with the prospect of s significant legal expenses involved in an extend ed federa lawsuit as well as the potential liability that could come with the unfavorable jury verdict, our city's attorneys came to the conclusion that the $6.4 million settlement is in the best pro k protech is shun of the taxpayers. i ultimately agreed with the recommendation. in looking at the settlement, i acknowledge that it is relatively unusual for the city to choose to settle a civil claim of alleged police misconduct prior to the resolution of a criminal case, but in the limited number of cases involving unique or extraordinary circumstances, the city has decided to settle civil liability prior to the adjudication of the criminal
7:19 am
charge charges. the purpose of the civil settlement is to bring an important measure of closure to the gray family, to the community and to the city, and to avoid years and years of protracted civil litigation, and the potential harm to the community and the divisiveness which might result. by reaching a civil settlement now we avoid the continuing anxiety and distraction of more legal procedures going on for years after the six criminal trials are over. both for the six officers, but as well as we eliminate that anxiety and distraction for the community. for the city as a whole. to cover the costs, more than sufficient funds are available entirely from other unrelated litigation, and despite this
7:20 am
high profile civil settlement, it is important to point out the overall gains that we have made by improving community police relations. we have seen reductions in the number of complaints alleging police misconduct, and police discourtesy as a well as a number of lawsuits filed against this city. and on a final note, i want to extend my most sincere condolence s condolences to the family of mr. freddie gray. i realize that money cannot bring back the loss of your son, your brother, and your loved ones. but i hope that the settlement can bring a measure of closure to the family, and friends, and i open up to questions. >> how long was this negotiated? >> i don't know the specific amount of days, but the settlement e negotiations have been going on for some months. >> and with the federal litigation, is that part of the
7:21 am
consideration? >> absolutely. >> and what triggered the notification? >> with the notification of intended federal litigation. >> and with the intention of the possible impact that this s settlement would have on the potential criminal litigation against the officers? >> did we consider it, yes, we did. >> to what exthe tent? >> we evaluated many parts of -- we will go away from that, because that was mayor stephanie rollings blake who explained the settlement a that the city reached with the family of freddie gray. and let's talk about this, an, with us is paul callan, our cnn
7:22 am
legal analyst, and also our legal analyst as well. how is this possible, paul? >> well, it seems that the police were apprehending freddie gray, and confining him and injuring him as he was transported back to the stationhouse, so you can't say it is unrelated and any person saying this is going to be saying that the city of baltimore is conceded that the police did wrong, so i think that it is going to affect the criminal trials. >> laura, it seems that the city has made up its mind, because at the end of the news conference, the mayor sends her condolences to the family of freddie gray. >> yes, and this is what the
7:23 am
mayor said to marilyn moesby, i hear your calls to no justice no, peace. and what this baltimore mayor is doing is essentially pandering again, and saying, listen, we want to make sure that we have paiece -- peace for the family, and have a civil suit prior to the trials of the six officer, and carol and paul, you are exactly right, it is impossible to believe that a man had a severed spine in the police custody, and the city has decided that there is liability for those officers to the tune the of $6.4 million, and there is no way for the jury to be objective on one hand, and realize that out of their own taxpayer funds that they are now being told to pay for the liability, and it is a very nuanced argument, but it is the same critique that happened for
7:24 am
the original indictment. >> and of course, the police union is furious about this, and they put out the statement -- just as baltimore is trying to restore the city back to the pre-rioting states, this s settlement will put us back to same way. >> i have never seen a way that police officers have done, but in new york, this has happened, and even police unions would complain even after the criminal cases that the city was selling out the police officers, and not being supportive, and the officers are going the say, how can we get a fair trial when the mayor has paid $6.4 million here, and si going to be an interesting argument when they try to change a venue saying
7:25 am
that you can't get a fair trial in this case, and i want to be interested to see those argument s. >> yes, that is tomorrow, and paul callan and laura coates, i appreciate your insight as always. and still to come, it is hillary clinton getting a makeover, and when it comes to politics, how much does image m matter? and zyrtec® is different than claritin®. because it starts working faster on the first day you take it. zyrtec®. muddle no more™ .

and good morning, i'm carol costello, and thank you for joining me. obviously, running for office is a long cruel slog and especially if you are not a performer or campaigner yourself. and so now, one aide says that a reboot will help clinton to talk
7:30 am
about her campaign and e-mails and iran. she starts talking about it now. >> i should have used two e-mail accounts, one for work and personal, and that is a mistake and i am sorry for that and i take responsibility for it and i'm trying to be as transparent as i can. >> and this morning, clinton expressed her readiness to be commander in chief willing to tout her approach to iran. >> my approach is distrust and verify. we should anticipate that iran will test the next president, and they will want to see how far they will want to bend the rules. that won't work if i'm in the white house. >> here to talk about this is patsy cisnernos, a image analyst, and paul avalon, and
7:31 am
political consultant, and john, i will begin with you, and hillary clinton apologizing, and did that surprise you? >> well, i mean, she has been kind of inching out the apology for a few weeks since the campaign realized that the status quo was not working. and there are a times that the apologies feel like a hostage video, but when we learned from "the new york times" that this is a rollout of the new authentic hillary, but when you are cutting it with the authenticity of the memos, it cuts against the grain of being a real person, and that is the biggest hurdle as a candidate, and we are seeing the effects of that in the fall of the presidential year. >> and patsy, we have known her since 1991, and if we don't know hillary clinton as a real person now, can we ever?
7:32 am
>> yes. what you are seeing is the real person, and that is her awe t n authentic self, and that is what people need to know, and either accept or not accept that, that is who she is, and who she will be as president. >> okay. that is interesting, john, and why isn't -- >> should she be elected. >> right. and why not just go with who she s and why reboot? >> well with that, -- well, th is the point. she should just go with that and remember we had the all of the remakeovers of al gore, and remember in 2008 when she teared up a little bit, and that is when she is so at risk at intimacy, and stop being handcuffed by the mental
7:33 am
handcuffed, but when she is tries to manage the words and the image, she is stuck in the muck and the mire, and the media has a little bit of doing that, because of the gotcha game with the politic, but she has to break out of it, and be authentic, and that is why trump for all of his insan the ti is doing well, and people can learn from it. >> so patsy, it is a good idea that she could not appear on the ellen degeneres show, because ellen has a way of making you be yourself. >> yes, and hillary is now scripted, and she has to be scripted for the apology, and she is scripted and you can tell that it is not a comfort for her, and she does not want to be asked any direct questions, and the warmth is not part of her nature or the personality style, and so that would have been uncomfortable for her to do more. you will see. >> and there she is dancing, and
7:34 am
it is not credible. >> and yes. >> i see what you are saying. >> yes, great moves, right? >> well, in a way, that can be endearing, too, right? >> sure. oh, absolutely, and as long as it is her, fine. and that is her. and if she could bust out the moves, that would shock people if she had some real, like rhythm going on there. >> not many candidates do. >> and she wants to be more executive looking, and drier personality, and very direct d, and that is what she is doing. >> all right. >> and talk about jeb bush because he is sort of -- go ahead, john. >> no, just, i mean, own it, and stop trying to sell yourself as a grandma and be the former secretary of the state, and talk about being tough with iran, and being tough with putin, and that kind of awe then tisthen tis --
7:35 am
authenticity riddled with her experience is going to go more. >> and thank you, patsy and john, i have to leave it there. and the candidates will have back-to-back debates one week from today, but tomorrow, we will find out who will take part. still to come in the newsroom, maybe we asked siri for a hint, but it is tim cook who has the answers. we will get a preview of apple's big announcement coming up next. . and free of stuff i don't like. we only eat chex cereal. no artificial flavors, and it's gluten-free. mom, brian threw a ball in the house!
