tv Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans CNN January 26, 2016 2:00am-3:01am PST
democrats running for president face-off. hillary clinton and bernie sanders making their cases six days until the iowa caucuses. what came out on top? and will donald trump boycott the next debate? and the anti-abortion activists who secretly taped planned parenthood employees and created a political fire storm now indicted. welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm boris sanchez. there are just six days left until the iowa caucuses. the democrats battled in a cnn
town hall and drawing sharp distinctions on policy. bernie sanders with the harshest criticism yet on casting doubt on hillary clinton's judgment and authorizing the war in iraq was brought to center stage. we have cnn's jeff zeleny there. >> reporter: christine and boris, martin o'malley and hillary clinton and bernie sanders took questions from undecided voters. what stood out to me here in des moines at drake university was subjects and questions about judgment. presidential judgment. bernie sanders directly answered the question if he has the judgment to be president. this follows on the heels of president obama slightly tipping the scales and raising the question if bernie sanders has the experience and judgment. >> president obama's obviously right. being president is an enormously
difficult job. a job that entails dealing with a million issues. i think i have the background and judgment to do that. i will remind the viewers that in 2002 when george w. bush and dick cheney said we should go to war in iraq, bernie sanders listened carefully and i said no, i think that war is a dumb idea. i helped lead the opposition to the idea. >> reporter: on that vote, secretary clinton responded to this for more than eight years. she said her judgment was validated by president obama selecting her as his secretary of state. >> first of all, i have a longer history than one vote which i said was a mistake because of the way that was done and how the bush administration handled it. i think the american people have seen me. when that hard primary campaign
was over and i worked for president obama and he asked me to work as secretary of state, it is because he trusted my judgment. we worked side by side over those four years. >> reporter: martin o'malley said he is a new generation of leader. he urged all of the iowa supporters to hold fast next monday night. of course, with six days remaining until the first vote until the 2016 campaign, the candidates are back out campaigning across the state. they have six more days. christine and boris. >> great work, jeff. here to help us break down the town hall is goldie taylor. nice to see you this morning. late night for all of us. >> yes. >> give me your assessment. >> nobody really won. i say that because no one walked away with one more voter than they walked into last night.
they did hold their own and did not do harm to themselves. they did not grow their base. >> i have a question for you about hillary clinton. one of the very first questions she was asked from a young voter is a lot of people don't trust her. we have seen a gap in trust with her and others. how much bernie sanders support is perceived of the lack of honesty? >> it has a great deal to do with it. if you were to do a word test with hillary clinton around it, you will find a good many people for whatever reason to come up with a word of distrust or not always telling the truth. whether or not that's true or not, that's the perception that many people have if you look at public opinion polling. the clintons have had an intimate relationship with voters. to get in the middle of that is to say you don't trust her.
that is a viable way to disaffect her from her base. >> and one of the answers from hillary clinton last night. she was asked by a veteran, muslim-american veteran mother of three, who said how do i make sure the united states is the best place to raise my children given the climate in the political debate. this is what hillary clinton said. >> one of the most distressing aspects of this campaign has been the language of republican candidates, particularly their frontrunner, that insults, demeans, denigrates different people. he has cast a wide net. he started with mexicans. he's currently on muslims. >> she went on to say impassioned that parents are telling her kids don't want to go to school because of the climate. >> she is right. we are in a distressing moment
in the nation's history in the discord. there are things that we didn't think would be the kind of thing that would leave a candidate viable moving forward. in one or two cases, those candidates have grown in stature. that's what hillary clinton was taking on. she has to continue to sharpen that argument. >> that was a primary argunt. >> that was a primary argument. she has to make it, come general time if we see someone like donald trump victorious over the gop nomination. >> let's talk bernie sanders. at the beginning of the campaign, democrats mostly played nice. first debate, he said nobody cares about hillary's e-mails. jeff talked about going after the iraq war vote and keystone pipeline. here's what he said. >> on day one, i said the keystone pipeline is a dumb
idea. [ applause ] >> senator, okay. >> i think the pipelines in vermont and new hampshire are dumb. we have to break independence on fossil fuel. why did it take a long time for hillary clinton to come into opposition to the keystone pipeline? >> not exactly an aggressive attack, but he is going after her. do you expect to see this if the campaign get deeper on the democratic side? >> in fact, i do. maybe not as -- once we get on the other side of iowa and new hampshire, when things meet the open road of south carolina and new hampshire, i'm sorry, nevada. we will see senator sanders take on the attack with greater fervor. i was there when you weren't. he will continue to double down on that. that is not negative campaigning, but drawing a contrast. hillary clinton will have to fire back on that. she will make sure she
appropriately insularanclates aw how she supported women's equality and certainly she's been there. she will have to show where she's made the appropriate judgments on war votes. she will have to fight back with her own record. no one is really better at doing that than she. >> we had an interesting interview yesterday. wolf blitzer and donald trump. he talked about the next debate and megyn kelly, the co-host. that spat coming to the floor again. he didn't say he would absolutely commit to this debate. listen to what he told us. >> you haven't 100% decided? >> no. >> why not? >> i'm not 100%. i'll see. if i think i'm going to be treated unfairly, i'll do something else. i don't think she can treat me fairly. i think she is biassed. that doesn't mean i don't do the
debate. >> i had trouble diagramming that sentence. however, what do you think he's going for there? >> this is lovers. you can go after a couple of people in the world and get away with it. used car salesmen and journalists. that resonates with the gop base and it resonates with his collection of voters that he strung together. he can continue to fire that line again and again without really doing any harm to himself, but raising his profile. then, he has been able to leverage it, maybe not with this network, but others. he has been able to leverage that in the way he frames himself as being unfair to him. when you look at how he's questioned and brought on air, i think some people do play him with kid gloves because of the way that he insulates himself from media attacks. >> he certainly energizes his base every time he gets out. a sentiment is engrained. >> thank you so much. we will see you again at 5:30.

a startling development in the planned parenthood controversy. a grand jury in houston, texas has cleared planned parenthood of accusations it profited from the sale of fetal tissue. instead, the grand jury indicted planned parenthood's accusers. two anti-abortion activists charged with using forged driver's licenses to infiltrate the organization to shoot videos of the officials. the indictments came swiftly with the presidential candidates calling it sad and shocking. more from pamela brown. >> reporter: good morning, christine. this is a twist. the anti-abortion activists are charged with tampering.
then relating the purchasing of human organs. he posed as a bio-technician and secretly recorded planned parenthood officials. the center released the videos last summer and showed how planned parenthood was trying to sell fetal tissue for profit. the videos are the topic of debate on the campaign trail and the center of the grand jury investigation. planned parenthood has denied the claims since the beginning and released a statement reacting to the indictments saying these anti-abortion extremists spent three years creating a fake company and fake identities and lying and breaking the law when they could not find illegal activity, they made it up. one of the people indicted, david deladin released a statement reacting to this saying we respect the process of the harris county district attorney and note buying fetal tissue requires a seller as
well. the texas governor released a statement saying this will not impact the state investigation that is still ongoing into the matter. boris and christine. >> all right, pam brown, thank you. president obama moving to ban solitary confinement for juvenile and low level offenders in federal prisons. he wrote the practice is overused and could have devastating psychological consequences. the longest the first-time offender punished with solitary is 60 days rather than the 365 day maximum. the reform affects 10,000 inmates. the manhunt intensifies for three inmates who escaped from the orange county jail last week. they cut through bars and through plumbing and repelled from the roof from bed sheets. the three are considered armed and dangerous. the fbi raised the reward for
information leading to capture to $50,000. the flint, michigan city administrator says the city is reeling from the water contamination crisis. he says the growing number of residents are refusing to pay for water service and the city's water fund could be out of money by year's end. the people of flint are outraged being forced to pay for water that is poisoned. day three of the digout from the epic winter storm. schools and federal offices will be closed again today in d.c. the mayor expects to deal with snow issues all week. air travel, more than 1,600 flights canceled on monday. the storm is blamed for 36 deaths. >> many here in new york. many who went out to shovel driveways. >> others who went to the car to charge a cell phone or stay warm and died of carbon monoxide.

all right. the spurs and warriors going head-to-head last night. both off to historic starts. only one can come out on top. >> we have coy wire with the bleacher report. we expected epic proportions, instead steph curry sat the fourth quarter. >> it was ugly, christine and boris. the match up could be considered the best match ever in nba
history. both team was the highest combined win percentage after 40 games by two teams that played each other. we are talking 78-10 combined. tim duncan sat this one out. they could have used him. he had a sore right knee. defense struggling. steph curry doing what he wanted to do. three steals in the game early. boris mentioned, spurs had no answers for the reigning nba champs. golden state's 39th straight win at home. spurs coach greg popovich not too happy. >> my game plan sucked. maybe i didn't have them ready mentally. again, it was men and boys in almost every facet of the game. not much else i can say. that's the truth. >> let's go to the tennis courts. serena williams taking on maria

audience. what stood out to me here in des moines at drake university was questions about judgment. bernie sanders answered the question if he has judgment to be president. this follows on the heels of president obama tipping the scales to hillary clinton raising the question if senator sanders has the experience and judgment. >> president obama is right. being president is an enormously difficult job. a job that entails dealing with a million different issues. i think i have the background and judgment to do that. i would remind you and remind the viewers that in 2002 when george w. bush and dick cheney said we should go to war in iraq, bernie sanders listened carefully and i said no, that is a dumb idea. i helped lead opposition to the war in iraq.
>> reporter: and in opposition, hillary clinton responded to this for more than eight years. she said her judgment was validated by president obama selecting her as secretary of state. listen to her answer. >> first of all, i have a much longer history than one vote which i said was a mistake because of the way that it was done and how the bush administration handled it. i think the american public has seen me exercising judgment in a lot of other ways. in fact, when that hard primary campaign was over and i went to work for president obama and he ended up asking me to be secretary of state, it is because he trusted my judgment. we worked side by side over the four years. >> reporter: martin o'malley made a case to supporters. he is a new generation of leaders. he asked all to hold fast next monday at the iowa caucuses. with six days remaining until the first votes of the 2016 campaign, the candidates are now back out campaigning across the state. they have six more days to make
their final arguments to voters. christine and boris. >> jeff, thank you. here to help us break down the candidates' town hall performance and the rest, daily beast editor goldie taylor. let's start off with the young voter who asked about hillary clinton's perceived lack of trust among young voters. >> if you are new to politics and the first time you really paid attention, you go, oh, my gosh. look at all of this. you have to say to yourself, why are they throwing all of that? i'll tell you why. because i've been on the frontlines of change and progress since i was your age. i have been fighting to give kids and women and the people who are left out and left behind a chance to make the most out of their own lives. >> she's using her record there to draw applause from the crowd.
how does she shed the perception? >> it comes down to retail politics. she will have to go door-to-door and kiss the babies. she will have to overcome that in a really intimate way. the fact of the matter is she has been on the public stage for nearly four decades. with that comes an awful lot of push back and public discourse. she has a lengthy record to prosecute. i'm sure the democrats and republicans will attempt to do that in meaningful ways. she that's fight back the fact of her record. >> there was a moment when a mother of three stood up, a veteran. a woman said is there islamaphobia? how did i raise my kids in the best country on earth? hillary clinton did not say donald trump's name, but this is what she said about the climate right now in this sound.
>> one of the most distressing aspects of this campaign has been the language of republican candidates, particularly their frontrunner, that insults, demeans, denigrates different people. he has cast a wide net. he started with mexicans, he's currently on muslims. >> she didn't say his name, which i thought was interesting. that looked more like something you will see in a general election if she is going to be up against donald trump. this is going to be her platform. >> absolutely. she continues to position herself as the presumptive nominee. as the person who walks away with the votes at the end of the day to face donald trump or ted cruz in the general election. she is positions herself while staving off attacks from bernie sanders. she is positioning herself as the person willing to take on donald trump. this kind of push back will sharpen over time.
>> staying on the democratic side. let's talk bernie sanders. the perception he cannot win a general election because he labels himself as a socialist. he talked about taxes. >> we will raise taxes, yes we will. let us be clear, chris. there's a little bit of disinginutity. we will raise taxes, but eliminate private health insurance premiums for individuals and businesses. >> he says there is disingenuous out there. how does bernie sanders shed this label that he is some kind of radical socialist? >> i don't know anyone in modern times who has won an election saying they are raising taxes. he wants to raise the cap for social security to provide medicare for all program which
is -- medicare is typically meant for seniors. he means to make certain that every american is able to get some kind of coverage. by the way, that program needs to be fixed. problems with medicare that simply when you are on it, it is expensive and confusing. if you are going to expand it, it needs to be fixed. to raise that cap and the cap is $118,000 right now, you know, it is high upper middle class, but not wealthy in the country if you are a family of four or five. you are living here in brooklyn, you are barely making it. i just thoroughly think you -- let me take that back. i will say you will have troubles with rent and other things. you are probably paycheck to paycheck. that is a struggle. to raise that cap means that every day americans will pay more in taxes. >> i know rand paul was live tweeting. in five seconds, he just spent
$1 trillion. it got interesting. let's talk about ted cruz. ted cruz, a meeting with evangelical pastors and christian pastors. if donald trump wins in new hampshire and iowa, this is the word he used. he's unstoppable. listen. >> i will say between donald and me, this is neck and neck. it is an absolute dead heat. and if donald wins iowa, he right now has a substantial lead in new hampshire. if he went on to win new hampshire as well, there's a very good chance he could be unstoppable and be our nominee. >> do you agree with him? >> i almost never agree with ted cruz. on this point, i do. if donald trump is able to continue the momentum and campaign and smart about the campaign spending. he hired the best on the ground in iowa and new hampshire to make sure he is highly
competitive there and able to take advantage of the polls and leads in the polls. if all of that comes together for him in iowa and new hampshire and south carolina, which has a little bit more of a diverse down south and where 20% of the population is hispanic, if he is able to open that, i think the game is effectively over. >> goldie taylor, thank you for talking to us. >> thank you for having me. happening right now, a manhunt to find three dangerous inmates who broke out of a california prison. new details on their daring escape next. vo: knactly whhe cae his big pitch. avo: and when craig gets his pitch down pat, do you know what he becomes? client: great proposal! let's talk more over golf! craig: great. client: better yet, how about over tennis craig: even better. avo: a game changer! secretary: your 2 o'clock is here. client: oops, hold your horses.

california. the officials did not realize the inmates were missing until 16 hours later. the officials say the three likely had help from inside. let's turn to sara sidner with more. >> reporter: the investigators say they had a well thought out plan to escape from the orange county jail. you see the barbed wire there over my head? that is where they escaped. in a twist, the sheriff's office have been tweeting out how think escaped. they were able to cut through the screen and force through a plumbing tunnel. they used that plumbing tunnel to get on to an unsecured part of the jailhouse roof. then, in order to get down from the roof, they took their sheets and fashioned rope and repelled four stories down. that is the story about the three men who investigators say
are extremely dangerous and they are warning the public to please take a look at the pictures. they are also pointing to the crimes they are accused of and say it could make them determined and desperate not to go back to jail. here is what they are accused of. hossein nayeri is one of four men accused of kidnapping and torturing a marijuana store. he is accused of kidnapping and burning the owner and severing his genitals in the desert. then nayeri has a prior murder conviction. then jonathan tieu. he is charged with murder and attempted murder in a gang-related attack. investigators say he is believed to be in a vietnamese gang and so is bac tien duong. he is charged with attempted murder. investigators want you to look at these pictures because these men at this point could be anywhere. they have been out for several days now.
there is an investigation into whether they had help inside of the jail or outside. that is ongoing. right now, investigators very determined to try to find these men and bring them back to prison. they have issued 30 search warrants so far. so far, they have not gotten credible leads from the public. boris, christine. >> brazen escape. thank you. a startling development in the planned parenthood controver controversy. a grand jury cleared the agency of misconduct and indicted accusers. two anti-abortion activists have been charged with using forged driver's licenses to infiltrate planned parenthood to shoot undercover video. the group called the center for medical progress claimed a heavily edited video proved that planned parenthood illegally profited from selling fetal tissue. it looks like an ugly day. asi

iran is in europe. president rouhani is building ties with political leaders meeting with the italian prime minister. for the first time in 17 years, iranian president meets with his holiness, the pope. we have cnn's erin mclaughlin with more for us. this is a big change after the nuclear deal and a big warming to the west. >> reporter: that is right. the meeting with pope francis is a closed-door meeting. we are expecting a photo op after the meeting is concluded. this is seen as a big pr gain for president rouhani at a time when he is trying to project iran as a key player on the international scene. vatican officials tell me pope francis has a lot to talk about as well. the full implementation of the nuclear deal. he was a big proponent of the
