2:00 am
hillary clinton faces the house select committee on benghazi. facing tough questions about what happened on that compound, facing questions about her e-mail. what will her strategy be? >> paul ryan could be speaker of the house if he wants it. new support overnight from congress's most conservative republicans. >> how joe biden got to know. we have new information about the decision he made, how late he made it and who knew, when did they know it? there were a lot of people surprised yesterday. >> i'm john berman, welcome to "early start." >> i'm christine romans. this morning, hillary clinton goes before the house benghazi committee. the committee says the focus willing on the 2012 attacks on the u.s. diplomatic compound in benghazi, libya, attacks that killed ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. the republican-led committee is
2:01 am
expected to ask then secretary of state hillary clinton about what she knew, about reported problems at the compound and why the u.s. even had a diplomatic outpost in benghazi. there are huge political stakes here. hillary clinton is running for president. and democrats say this is all about the campaign. cnn's elise labbit has the latest. >> reporter: after months of anticipation, the day is finally here and it's going to be a long day. we understand there will be four two-hour rounds of questioning of secretary clinton with breaks. aides to clinton says she is ready, spent the week preparing with policy and legal teams, going over potential questions and studying up on events leading up to and following the benghazi attacks. it was a long time, after all. there have been more than than a half dozen investigations
2:02 am
following the benghazi attacks. democrats maintain it was designed as a takedown of clinton and you had a string of comments recently by republicans almost backing up those accusations. committee chairman trey gaudy says he will prove the committee is not about politics with the hearing that is respectful of clinton and focuses on the facts surrounding the benghazi attacks. democrats, republicans, the state department, all be watching this hearing putting out their own spin, their own talking points but for secretary clinton, this is really a chance to defend her record as secretary of state and argue that this committee is retreading old ground here. you know, in some ways it's a chance to lay out her approach to foreign policy as they campaigns to be commander in chief. so clearly this hearing, a key moment for both clinton's presidential campaign and the future of this committee. john, christine? >> thanks so much. breaking overnight,
2:03 am
congressman paul ryan cleared a pretty big hurdle in his bid to become the speaker of the house. overnight, a super majority of the house freedom caucus, the group of conservative republicans voted to back ryan. they say to support him. he didn't get fight enough support for a formal endorsement. >> the freedom caucus supports him but didn't fully endorse him. what does that mean in practical terms? >> it means we couldn't get 80% as our rules require but we got more than two-theirs of the group that said they wanted to support paul for speaker. if he has the votes that we all think that he has in other portions of our conference, he has enough votes to be the speaker of the house. >> paul ryan had earlier set a firmal endorsement as a condition by his bid. by last night, two-theirs with be that was enough for him. he put out a tweet, i'm grateful for the majority of the support from the house freedom caucus. i believe this is a positive step toward a unified republican team. the other two groups almost a certainty.
2:04 am
this is essentially a done deal. new details about joe biden's decision not to run for president. the vice president he ended mo s -- months of speculation with this announcement in the white house rose garden. >> but while i will not be a candidate, i will not be silent. i intented to speak out clearly and forcefully to influence as much as i can where we stand as a party and where we need to go as a nation. >> biden's decision is big news for hillary clinton. polls shows she's likely to benefit the most from his absence. let's get more on this from senior washington correspondent jeff zeleny. >> good morning, john and christine. in the end joe biden followed his head, not his heart as he decided to back away from what surely is his last chance to win the presidency. in closing the door to weeks of self-induced speculation about joining the 2016 presidential race, he opens the door to the rest of the democratic campaign. was he ever serious at all?
2:05 am
several advisers and friends insist that he was. i'm told the more he knew about race, the more exploring he did in calls to iowa, new hampshire and south carolina, the more daunting his path to victory actually seemed. over the past several days when he was out calling out hillary clinton for saying republicans are the biggest enemies, he wasn't firing a warning shot as much as offering a lesson in bipartisanship for how he thinks washington should actually work. hillary clinton is surely relieved. bernie sanders is now the leading alternative. if democrats are still looking for one. now, biden made clear he would not remain sideline the in the race going forward. urging democrats to embrace president obama and his legacy tightly. but his endorsement may depend on which candidate actually listens. john and christine? >> thanks, jeff. >> if you're keeping score at home, what a 24-hour period, joe biden out, paul ryan essentially in as speaker of the house,
2:06 am
hillary clinton about to face what could be the biggest hurdle in her campaign yet. joining is us, cnn politics reporter eric bradner. good morning. i want to start with the benghazi hearings. hillary clinton, face-to-face with the select committee. there's been so much talk. is this a little witch hunt, is this about uncovering new facts about what happened in 2012? let's quickly listen to representative susan brooks, republican from indiana, what she says she's after today. >> i'm particularly focused on the security incidents and the posture of the state department with respect to the security requests. we have learned through e-mails and through documents that there were hundreds of mentions about security incidents, particularly in 2012. so we have questions for the secretary about what she did with respect to those security requests. >> what do you think the risks are for secretary clinton today? this is obviously right in the middle of her presidential run.
2:07 am
>> right. she believes she's prepared for this. she's testified about benghazi before. there have been several other investigations into this. so she feels like she has a good grasp on answering the questions. the risk is that this is going to be the most politically charged hearing of all of them. this is coming at, as you say, a key moment in her campaign. she's gotten through the hurdle of the first democratic debate. this is next big marker. she's probably going to have terse exchanges with republicans today. she will not start there but won't hesitate to counterpunch. it's a matter of coming out looking good, not looking overly political, not looking like she's trying to politicize this incident. in those exchanges, in what's going to be an eight plus hour hearing. this is going to go all day. one bad moment could be a big problem. >> one bald moment could find
2:08 am
its way into a campaign ad in the months ahead. so every word she's beginning to be scrutinizing here even as she's trying to honestly answer the questions and get to the bottom of this. there is four americans who are dead. what is the risk for new information? what is the hope for new information here? for example, why was there an embassy compound in benghazi in the first place? are there these new e-mails showing exactly all the concerns of chris stevens over security in the region? and did she read those e-mails? >> republicans have been preparing for this exhaustively. they've been practicing. they know this is going to be closely watched. they're well aware of the politics here. they're not going to play this as a political hearing, a political event. they do know they'll be heavily scrutinized. they've invested $4.5 million of taxpayer money, trey gaudy has staked a lot of his reputation on the outcome of this
2:09 am
investigation. they've been prepping for this, they know they're going to have america's eyes on them. so you're right, it's going to be tough to sort of surface new information here. after so many investigations, after such a close look at this. but they do believe they have new points to make and how secretary clinton responds to those will be sort of the key to watch through this entire hearing. >> you get the sense over the last several days that brooklyn, hillary clinton campaign has had one eye on the benghazi hearings, one eye on joe biden. well, the biden hurdle has been cleared right now. >> right. >> what does his announcement, what does it mean going forward? it's not about today, really but about tomorrow once the benghazi was over. >> coming in october it was the first democratic edate, joe biden's decision, whenever that would come and the benghazi hearings. now they're thinking two down, one to go. if they get through all thee of these unscathed without a new opponent, without a really bad
2:10 am
moment, that will be huge. that will send a signal to brooklyn and to clinton's donors and her supporters, especially in early states, that perhaps the worst is over. they've hit rock got on with the e-mail scandal. they've overcome it through this contentious hearing where republicans will take their absolute best shot at her. and if they can get through those three things, they're looking at polls that show her competing much better one-on-one with bernie sanders than she would have against sanders and biden. and they're looking at her debate performance and feeling good about the next five coming in the months ahead. if she can get through this hearing unscathed, she'll be feeling a lot better than she was in the beginning of october. >> let's talk about the negotiating skills of paul ryan. comes out there and says i'll do take this hard job if you do this, this, this and this. it's looking better. >> he said he wanted the endorsement of the house freedom
2:11 am
caucus, this hard line conservative group. the house freedom caucus has a lot of rules such as they need 80% of their nebs members on boo issue an endorsement. they have more than 70%. that's a big hurdle. he put the ball in their court, said i'll run for speaker if you're on board. if you're not, then this one is on you. so he got that endorsement. right now it looks much, much more likely that paul ryan will be the next speaker of the house than it did last night. he has two other groups in the house republican caucus that he needs to get on board. those have always been much more likely than the house freedom caucus. there's a moderate grupp and conservative but not fight as hard line group. they've been ideologically aligned with paul ryan. they've always seen hill as a thought leader. so he's almost certain to get their support. >> it turns out the easy job will be winning the speaker seat, the hard job might be actually holing it and wielding
2:12 am
that gavel. eric bradner, thanks so much for joining us. the world debut on "early start." >> he is officially an "early start" early bird. i'll tell you, the real challenge will be having work/life balance. >> good luck with that. breaking news this morning, secretary of state john kerry meeting with the prime minister of israel right now, the subject, the violence in that region right now. can it come to an end? that's next. re watching this, i'm hacking your company. grabbing your data. stealing your customers' secrets. there's an army of us. relentlessly unpicking your patchwork of security. think you'll spot us? ♪ you haven't so far. the next wave of the internet requires the next wave of security.

2:16 am
supporters by publicly claiming it was a palestinian who gave adolf hitler the idea for the holocaust. i want to go live to berlin, bring in cnn's atika shubert for the latest on the talks and the reaction. >> reporter: germany's reaction from germany's chancellor, angela merkel was to simply say germany has taken and continues to take responsibility for what happened in the holocaust and there's no need to revive history. this has been ek code by his kroit critics in israel saying benjamin netanyahu is trying to score political points with his own take on history that has been debunked by hiss torians. prime minister netanyahu said he felt the most reept wave of attacks was incitement by the palestinian side. he said mahmoud abbas needs to,

hillary clinton on capitol hill just hours from facing new questions from lawmakers on the benghazi terror attack. breaking overnight, paul ryan gets the support but maybe not the endorsement of a key conservative group in congress. but that support may be all he needs. >> inside joe biden's decision to not run for president. why insiders say he stayed out of the race. a fascinating 24 hours, ladies and gentlemen. >> if you skip yesterday, man, oh, man you have no idea what's going on. >> welcome back to "early start," i'm christine romans. >> i'm john berman, 31 minutes past the hour. hillary clinton goes before the house benghazi committee today. this question and answer session could last eight hours or more. the committee says the focus will be the 2012 attacks on the u.s. diplomatic compound in benghazi, in libya, that killed ambassador chris stevens and three other americans.
2:32 am
that republican-led committee is expected to ask then secretary of state clinton about what she knew about reported securitied problems at the compound and why the u.s. even had a diplomatic outpost there. there are huge political stakes here as well. hillary clinton, of course, running for president, all the questions about her e-mails. democrats say this is just a campaign show. cnn's elise labbot has the latest. >> reporter: after months of anticipation, the day is finally here. it's going to be a long day. we understand there will be four two-hour rounds of questioning of secretary clinton with breaks. aides to clinton say she is ready. she spent the week preparing with policy and legal teams going over potential questions and studying up on the events leading up to and following the benghazi attacks. it was a long time, after all. there have been more than a half dozen congressional investigations following the
2:33 am
benghazi attacks but there has been a greater political tone to this one. democrats, of course, mann taken it was designed as a takedown of clinton and you had the string of comments recently by republicans, almost backing up those accusations. the committee chairman, trey gowdy says he will prove the committee is not about politics with a hearing that is respectful of clinton and focuses on the facts surrounding the benghazi attacks. democrats, republicans, the state department, all will be watching this hearing, putting out their own spin, their own talking points. but for secretary clinton, this is really a chance to defend her record as secretary of state and argue that this committee is retreading old ground here. and you know, in some ways it's really a chance to lay out her approach to foreign policy as she campaigns to be commander in chief. so clearly this hearing, a key moment for both clinton's presidential campaign and the future of this committee. john, christine?
2:34 am
>> thanks for that. breaking overnight, congressman paul ryan clearing a major hurdle in his reluctant bid to become speaker of the house. a super majority of hard right republicans voted to back ryan but not fight enough for a formal endorsement. >> the freedom caucus supports him but didn't fully endorse him. what does that mean in practical terms? >> practical terms it means we couldn't get 80% as our rules require but we got more than two-thirds of the group that said they wanted to support paul for speaker. if paul really has the veries that we all think that he has in other portions of our conference, he has enough votes to be the speaker of the house. >> ryan earlier said a formal endorsement as a condition for his bid. by last night, two-thirds parentally was enough for him. ryan tweeted i'm grateful for the support of a super majority of house freedom caucus. i look forward to hearing from the other two caucuses by the end of the week but i believe this is a positive step toward a unified republican team. >> new details about the
2:35 am
decision joe biden made not to run for president. he also is vice president. he ended months of untense speculation, much of it wrong about a presidential run. he said the window for a successful campaign has closed. let's get the latest. new details from senior washington correspondent jeff zeleny. >> reporter: good morning, john and christine. in the end joe biden followed his head, not his heart as he decided to back away from what surely is his last chance to win the presidency. in closing the door to weeks of self-induced speculation about joining the 2016 presidential race, he opens the door to the rest of the democratic campaign. so was he ever serious at all? several advisers and friends insist that he was. i'm told the more he knew about the race, the more exploring he did in calls to iowa, new hampshire and south carolina, the more daunting his path to victory actually seemed. so over the past several days when he was out calling out hillary clinton for saying, republicans are the biggest enemies, he wasn't firing a
2:36 am
warning shot as much as offering a lesson in bipartisanship for how he thinks washington should actually work. now, hillary clinton is surely relieved. bernie sanders is now the leading alternative. if democrats are still looking for one. biden made clear he would not remain silent in the race going forward. urging democrats to embrace president obama and his legacy tightly. but his endorsement mae may depend on which candidate actually listens. john and christine? >> jeff zeleny, thank you. let's talk about all this political action. welcoming eric bradner. good morning, nice to see you, 5:36 in the east. you'll get a doughnut in the mail today for coming up so early for us. let's talk about what could happen today. hillary clinton, this benghazi committee hearing, this could be eight hours of q & a. what does hillary clinton need to do to end these questions about benghazi and what happened there? or is there nothing she can do
2:37 am
to stop the questioning until the election is over? >> that's her campaign sense. there's nothing she can do to ever get these questions to go away. republicans have been billing this as the mother of all benghazi hearings. clinton has testified on this before. but the benghazi committee feels they have several questions that she hasn't answered. they want to press her on what she knew about the security situation there, leading up to the attacks, why more wasn't done. and so this is really going to be a political by charged hearing. this is clinton in the midst of a presidential campaign, trying to put this issue to rest and also trying to show that this is something that republicans are really pushing as a political issue. it's an attack on her as the democratic front-runner in the 2016 race. while republicans will be trying to demonstrate despite what house majority leader kevin mccarthy and a couple other republican leaders said, this is about finding the facts, and figuring out what went wrong and
2:38 am
led to the deaths of four americans. >> one of the big questions are the e-mails, the e-mail server.r how much do you think they will ask about the e-mails? what is the political peril for them in pressing that issue and where's the peril for hillary clinton there? >> right. republicans don't want to come off as overly political. they're sensitive to that. but the e-mails will come up. they'll probably come up in the context of what she knew and when she knew it. and whether there were security risks that she created through her use of a private e-mail server. they will come up. for clinton, this is an opportunity to put distance between herself. this issue that has dogged her presidential campaign since she announced her entrance into the race in april. she had to get through the first democratic debate. she had to get through joe biden making a decision about whether he will run. this is the third of three big
2:39 am
issues, the month of october has sort of laid in front of her. she will try to demonstrate that she didn't put american security at risk. but it will definitely come up and she's definitely been practicing, preparing to answer these questions. >> let's talk about joe biden, now we have resolution. joe biden will not run for president. that is a big unknown for the clinton campaign that has now been settled. >> yes, absolutely. hillary clinton had been trying to give joe biden a lot of distance to make his decision but at the same time, her campaign had been sending signals that, you know, if the vice president did get in the race, it would be really hard for him to find a path. one great example is earlier this week she put out a list of endorsements from dozens of mayors in south carolina, which is a key early voting state and one that joe biden would have had to win or perform really strongly in in order to have a shot at the nomination.
2:40 am
clinton did that sort of as a show of strength to demonstrate that she's been organizing for months. she has a lot of democratic officials in her camp. she has a lot of important endorsements and important organization. the vice president would have a hard time replicating that in such a short window. she gave him a lot of space and is certainly breathing a sigh of relief now. clinton's campaign had been preparing, had been sort of laying the ground work to make it very difficult for biden to run. >> eric bradner, great to have you with us this morning. great cnn political reader, read his stuff online at cnn politics. see you again soon. thanks. breaking news, an urgent meeting to stop the violence in israel. john kerry meeting with israel's prime minister. we are live.
