tv   CNN Newsroom With Brooke Baldwin  CNN  September 14, 2016 11:00am-12:01pm PDT

11:00 am
. i'm brooke baldwin, thank you so much for being with me. this is cnn, 55 days until the presidential election and many of you have concerns. you will be casting ballots in the dark. both candidates here famous but not necessarily well known and both still keeping key details about themselves out of public eye. now donald trump is responding to the growing chorus of demands releasing more details today on his own personal health. the whole episode giving political observers a proverbial case of whiplash. first, this was hailed trump would make the big reveal on the
11:01 am
dr. oz show which, by the way, taped this morning here in new york. then a couple hours ahead of when trump was said to appear the campaign actually said, no, no, there will be no disclosure of the physical that he underwent with his own personal doctor last week. but then trump reversed course, presenting, according to the campaign, a one-page summary of his physical exam results to dr. oz. so what do the results show? let's get to kelly plat who happened to be in today's audience, she's a pharmacist intern who plans to vote for trump. so, kelly, thanks for stopping by and welcome. >> thank you for inviting me. >> so how did it go? how healthy is donald trump? >> i think the show went very well, i was very impressed with donald trump, impressed with his health report. the crowd was excited to see him there. it was a once in a lifetime
11:02 am
opportunity to be there to hear his speech, to hear his -- i would say his plans for everybody, plans for things that he wants to implement in the united states. >> okay, let's just stay on his health, if we can, kelly, and i understand he talked a little bit about in the past having higher cholesterol and that he wants to lose a little bit of weight. what do you recall from that piece of the conversation? >> well, i know he stated that he gave letters from his doctors that he is the epitome of health and i believe him on that, you can see it. he looks it. you can see he's a very healthy man and dr. oz agreed with him after dr. oz even read the letters from his physician and everybody can have the opportunity to lose a little weight, just be healthier and lower your cholesterol and that's one thing donald trump mentioned was that his cholesterol was high at one time
11:03 am
and he was put on statins to lower his cholesterol and he has zero health issues, he has no heart problems and no other health issues which will be harming him for his presidential run. >> did he talk, kelly, at all -- you talk how he's the epitome of health. did he talk about what he eats. i know he has a penchant for fast food on the trail. >> sorry, can you repeat that? >> can ydid he talk about what eats? >> he eats very healthy from what he said. occasionally he might want to go for a quick hamburger. but that ice -- whoever has to go for a quick hamburger if they're hungry if they go to a fast food place. as long as you don't go frequently, everybody can be on a healthy food plan. >> i know he's a busy man, i can't imagine the zigzagging ahead of november 8 but does he exercise? did he talk about that at all?
11:04 am
>> he said he does not exercise but just going to all these functions where he's meeting with 35,000 people, 45,000 people and you're sitting walking through everyone, to me that is exercise so you may not be going to the gym and lifting weights but going to all these political functions where he's constantly walking, walking is very good and walking is a part of the exercise regimen. >> did he say anything that surprised you or did you have a favorite moment? >> i know he likes to play golf but he hasn't had time to play a lot of golf, being on the presidential run and the campaign trail, there's not a lot of time for extra curricular activities where he can go play golf but i know he can play golf with the pga players and i believe he's telling the truth on that. >> he said -- he remarked he's so good at golf he could do the pga tour.
11:05 am
kelly plat, you had quite the experience today. thank you so much for sharing it, fast food and dr. oz, welcome to the 2016 presidential race. let's talk bigger picture here. joining me, a doctor who is an assistant professor at the university of school of medicine, mark preston is our cnn political editor and with drew griffin, cnn investigative correspondent so hello to all of you. first to you as the doctor, as the m.d. on the set, my question is, listening to kelly and hearing specifically trump said he wanted to lose 15 to 20 pounds, she said epitome of health. total transparency, you've never examined mr. trump. >> sure. >> quick assess. >> in general, for somebody who's that age who had high cholesterol in the past who likes fast food you'd screen for heart disease to make sure that cardiovascul
11:06 am
cardiovascularly, that person is okay. >> she says he speaks to 45,000 person crowd and that's exercise. your assessment? >> walking a lot is. we have concerns about people having a sedentary life-style but there's no standard history in physical exam. there's three different ways doctors approach it. first they look at the symptoms people are reporting so for him the focus would be a little more on his cardiovascular health. then people do general screening tests so for example what kind of tests would you do with that person and then there's a third type of test where you have a pre-op test, can you stand the stress of presidency and do more intensive tests based on that. >> so we don't know whether he was told to hop on a treadmill, blood tests that kind of thing, we don't have that. drew griffin? you look at me and you laugh. you chased down -- is it dr. bornstein? >> dr. hard bornstein.
11:07 am
he's mr. trump's doctor who gave him this assessment. let me play a piece of your interview just recently. >> you fully -- whatever you wrote in that letter you fully believe mr. trump is capable of being president physically? >>ee, absolutely. there's no question. >> why did you write that letter? was it a joke in the words you chose, the way you wrote it. >> i was rushing, i had people to see. >> tell me more about his background. >> he graduated from tufts university, he took over the practice from his father who's a harvard medical grad, he's been on the upper east side for 30 years, he's been trump's doctor as long, they met apparently in jamaica queens through his mother, the doctor's mother brought the trumps in as clients so they have been trump's physician for quite a long time and he probably has a long, long history of knowing what trump's
11:08 am
ailments are. at question at the time was that very terse little verbose language he wrote in his one page summary. the guy is not your standard doctor. that's not marcus welby there. he's a little different but i don't think that says anything about the value of his treatment for donald trump. clearly trump seems to be a healthy man and this doctor says, look, i've examined the guy for decades, he's healthy. >> do you know if we'll be getting more from him publicly this week? >> after that interview, i guess you would call it, his wife broke it up. there was a lot of tense situations going on and the wife doesn't like the attention she's getting clearly. but i wrote him a letter and hi called me back and said "call me any time if you have any questions if i don't have to violate patient confidentiality i will talk to you." >> sure. >> when i heard donald trump was having another physical i picked up the phone and called him and his office said "call the campaign, with e we're not talk
11:09 am
you anymore." that's how it ended. >> for the political piece, 20,000 foot view, it's donald trump on dr. oz and this is the big reveal. >> not surprising given the nature of the campaign, wholly inadequate given that we're talking about the next commander-in-chief but wholly inadequate, quite frankly, for hillary clinton as well that they have been forced to reveal more information. we'll see what that is. i think this is an issue that we will talk about for a couple day, clearly from what we've or what we've been told, there doesn't seem to be any glaring red flares but this is an issue that will probably go away or won't have a major impact on the campaign, specifically on the donald trump side. >> you think it will go away? >> i think there are bigger issues people will address, the taxes donald trump hasn't released, his whole company in the business relationships as we've seen from "newsweek" and the entanglement he has overseas. it fits into a bigger narrative of both candidate, quite frankly, not being as honest and
11:10 am
trustworthy or open about important issues. >> also just quickly, when you think about daytime tv, huge female viewer shoip that can't be a mistake that he's thinking voters, women, november 8. >> let me go back to the obama administration for a white house that perfected reaching out to alternative media so to speak, the "entertainment tonight"s and what have you to get their message across. this isn't something knew he would decide to go on to a quote/unquote talk show to do this. we've seen this through entertainment television. the obamas have done a fantastic job spreading their message beyond us. >> did you want to jump in. >> agree it goes away unless he stumbles or somebody digs up some episode in the past where there's a medical issue but we haven't found any yet. >> on both of these candidates, as you mentioned, we are supposed to get more on hillary clinton's medical history, how detailed, how far back, we don't know. as an m.d., what's your biggest question? >> i think it's fair for viewers to ask, for voters to ask what
11:11 am
is going on with their health. if you go for a regular job you have to take a pre-employment physicals. but it's fair to see if they can do an adequate job at the presidency. >> all right, dr. debbie, mark, and drew, thank you all so much. coming up, colin powell thinks donald trump is a "national disgrace" according to leaked e-mails. the bigger question is who hacked him and why? plus the attorney general here in new york now investigating the trump foundation. we'll look into the fallout. that's ahead. and more of my discussion, candid, fiery, fundis cushion inside this atlanta barbershop. we talk race, politics, don't miss this. you're watching cnn, i'm brooke baldwin.

11:13 am
i know more about isis then the apprgenerals do. age. john mccain, a war hero. he's not a war hero, he's a war hero because he was captured. i like people that weren't captured ok.
11:14 am
donald trump compared his sacrifices to the sacrifices of two parents who lost their son in war. how would you answer that father? what sacrifice have you made for your country? i think i've made a lot of sacrifices, built great structures. i've had tremendous success, i think... those are sacrifices?
11:15 am
no... they feel good? you wouldn't put up with part of a pair of glasses. so when it comes to pain relievers, why put up with part of a day? these are not useful. live whole. not part. aleve. . we're live, i'm brooke baldwin. trump has a new problem. new york's attorney general is now investigating trump's charitable foundation. attorney general eric schneiderman tells cnn why he
11:16 am
launched the probe. >> my interest in the -- this issue is in my capacity as regulator of nonprofits in new york state. we have been looking into the trump foundation to make sure it's compliant with the laws that govern charities in new york. >> the trump campaign fired back calling schneiderman "a partisan hack. who has turned a blind eye to the clinton foundation for years and has endorsed hillary clinton." let me brink in paul callan, attorney and former new york city prosecutor and betsy mccoy, trump supporter and members of trump's economic advisory council and former lieutenant governor. >> i'm not a member of the economic advisory council. >> oh. >> because i'm a columnist so i'm just a supporter. >> forgive me. bad information, i apologize. but turn former lieutenant governor of this great state of new york. >> i was. >> welcome back. >> thank you. >> paul callan, what's the basis of this inquiry? >> it's not unusual for the
11:17 am
attorney general of any state to have power to investigate charitable foundations in a state. so schneiderman has jurisdiction in this area. what's unusual is that it's happening of a presidential campaign in a presidential year. a lot of a.g.s, i think, might back off and say -- >> so there's the question of political motivation. >> whether it's politically motivated. i don't know what schneiderman's specific facts are but if he has evidence that he thinks supports fraud by the trump foundation he has a legal right to commence an investigation. >> much of this came from the reporting in the "washington post." we've had their reporters on. to me, as we've heard from trump and others that he has donated tens of millions in charitable donation, why not come out and say "here you go." address this publicly and embarrass schneiderman? >> first of all, it shocks the conscience what schneiderman has done. for the top law enforcement official in new york state to
11:18 am
join the clinton campaign's leadership council and launch an investigation against hillary's opponent is unethical. he should recuse himself. >> i understand the frustration but -- >> wait a minute. expect calls for his resignation. expect to hear calls for his resignation because this is so extraordinarily unethical. >> okay. so on the question of why not come out and be public and show schneiderman and the public here are the millions of dollars that -- in charitable donations, case closed. >> i don't expect there will be irregularities found. after all, the "washington post" in a frenzy to find some way to discredit trump and the foundation. >> why not release the records? >> let me go on. it went back 24 years, found what they called five discrepancies, three of which became false claims within 24 hours so they haven't found anything but i would be very reluctant to be the subject of an investigation by eric
11:19 am
schneiderman. he has shown himself to be partisan. in fact, just a couple years ago he said "there is no room for conservatives in new york state." >> i understand you are turning this back around on him but i go back to the question, why not release the records. >> release them to an impartial person. >> will they do that? >> i don't speak for the campaign but the trump foundation all the filings have been made, unlike the clinton administration. >> would you advise them to release them? >> i don't know what you're talking about, releasing. >> saying here are the millions or tens of millions of charitable donations we have given. >> i run a charity so i know what you have to file in new york state. you have to file all of that in new york state so believe me eric schneiderman has copious data on the trump foundation -- >> let me pause on that and ask you. that would be the case based upon her knowledge of philanthropic donations that he would have his that information
11:20 am
at his fingertips. >> yes, there's a tremendous amount of information the attorney general has access to because it's his job to monitor these charitable foundations but i wonder, betsy, would you support schneiderman investigating the clinton foundation. >> oh, well, yes. >> that would be okay, not the trump foundation? >> let me point out -- >> if i could just finish for a moment. unless there's really compelling evidence of criminality or fraud it would seem to me that neither hillary clinton nor donald trump should have their foundations investigated in the midst of a presidential campaign. >> you are quite right about that. >> i think we could wait until december and do just as good as a job as opposed to facing claims this is a politically motivated action. >> forgive me, lieutenant governor, but you can understand if you all -- forthe trump campaign has called on the clinton foundation to shut it down, that's the chorus. you can understand why the reverse is being called upon. >> no, let me point out
11:21 am
something that hasn't been added to this discussion yet. >> sure. >> eric schneiderman is already aware that the clinton administration violated new york charity law by failing to disclo disclose donations from foreign governments specifically and individually report them. he gave them a pass. $225 million in donations from foreign governments. >> true? >> yes, he's -- well, yes in the sense that there's been public information about this. but all 50 attorneys general in all 50 states are aware of this and not everybody's starting an investigation of the clinton administration or the trump foundation because we have a presidential election under way. somebody in new york has decided, hey, i've got to do this and i think it's raising legitimate questions as to whether it's politically motivated. but, incidentally, i also think it would be a mistake to go after hillary clinton at this particular point in political time. >> getting muddies, all the politics, quickly, final thought. >> yes, but as you can see mrs.
11:22 am
clinton's foundation failed to disclose 1,100 donations from foreign entities despite an agreement she signed as condition of becoming secretary of state to disclose those donations and in violation of federal tax code, she had to file amended returns and once she file those amended returns and said "because foundations, like people, make mistakes." well, the mistakes have piled up for the clinton foundation and isn't it ironic that eric schneiderman instead has gone on a fishing expedition against the trump foundation. >> okay, that's it. thank you, paul lann lacallan, you. coming up, former secretary of state colin powell thinks donald trump is a quote/unquote national disgrace. that's according to leaked e-mails. but the bigger question, who hacked him and why? we'll talk about that ahead. also, more of my conversation with michael render, a.k.a. killer mike, rap,

11:26 am
11:27 am
in yet another example of hackers infiltrating the 2016 presidential race, the private and personal e-mails of former secretary of state colin powell have been made public, including some pretty critical comments about donald trump. secretary powell, who oversaw the state department during a
11:28 am
portion of the george w. bush administration has not endorsed trump, has not endorsed clinton, either, for that matter, has avoided public comments about his own party's nominee. behind the scenes it's a different story. in an e-mail obtained by d.c. leak, an organization affiliated with other recent hacks of high-profile figures, secretary powell is quoted as writing "trump is a national disgrace and an international pariah." one of his aides confirms the authenticity of that e-mail to cnn saying "the e-mails are accurate. no further comment at this time." so i have mike baker here, former cia covert operations officer. tim neftali, former director of the nixon presidential library and in moscow, cnn international correspondent matthew chance. so first to these two men sitting next to me. >> and, yes, we did coordinate our fashions and we're doing a dueling pianos show later. >> glad we can have a laugh in
11:29 am
all of this, my purple men. tim, just on the politics of this. seeing the words "national disgrace and international pariah" from a man who served under a republican president, what do you make of his candor. >> two things. first of all, colin powell is the victim of a crime. when we talk about transparency, we're talking about when people are in office. he's retired so the first thing we have to make clear is that we don't want to get used to stealing people's private e-mails. it's aed be thing. given that they're out. he is saying in those e-mails what the gop foreign policy experts expressed in that letter that over 120 of them signed, including the man mo my right, in may, where they said donald trump should not lead this country. these are loyal republicans who looked at trump's statement, who looked at his background, and said this is someone who lax a judgment. >> why do you think he hasn't
11:30 am
endorsed hillary clinton. >> george schultz, brent scrowcro scrowcroft, they have made clear they will not support donald trump. this issue here is there's nothing in the e-mails we are seeing today that contradicts what people, republicans in the foreign policy community have been saying about donald trump for months. they don't believe he has the judgment required to lead this country in the era of terrorism in nuclear threats. >> what do you make, mike, on the hacks themselves. ? >> it's a little surprising that someone with colin powell's experience in government and in dealing with sensitive issues isn't more circumspect or discreet knowing that everyone in every organization is vulnerable to hacking. >> you're saying he should have
11:31 am
been aware in the back of his head? >> anybody should understand now days. anything you right could end up being on cnn being talked about by us. >> we're really there. >> and so -- but the hacking itself, look, you know, i'm one of those who believes that what we're looking at -- and i suspect, like others do, that this is probably a russian -- persistent threat, not a state sponsored. there's probably levels of cutouts between the entity that's been engaged in this activity and that is now getting these e-mails and things are government. but the long game here they're not trying to influence who wins the election but the long game is more of a traditional battle where they're trying to erode trust in the democratic process. that is a very consistent that effort the russians have been engaged in for decades and decades. >> on that, matthew, in moscow, listen, again, we can not say for sure that this was russia but what would the advantage -- by the way, this was also not
11:32 am
the only noteworthy high-profile hack what would the advantage be for russia to medal? >>. >> r you're right. we have in the past year or so seen an upsurge in the number of hacking attacks which law enforcement officials say is not much evidence of. but there's not such circumstantial evidence. not so much targets that are chosen for instance in that are aligned with the perceived targets in the russian state. they never attacked the friends of russia, they only ever attack the rivals and critics and enemies. when it comes to u.s. political process, your next guest is right. public sentiment is in favor of
11:33 am
trump in comparison to hillary clinton. she's seen as an outspoken critic of russia. she compared putin to hitler at one stage not so long ago over the annexation of crimea and there's lots of things she did when she was secretary of state that was opposed to russia interest. she's a despised figure in this country whereas trump makes these positive sounds. at the same time, kremlin officials, they still have misgivings about trump and they know he's an unpredictable figure so there is a sense in which they genuinely don't know which horse to back in that race, but there is a sense in which they would like to see in general terms the undermining of the democratic system, of the presidential process in russia and so that may be what the aim of these hacks really is. >> okay, and maybe his last point is significant because there's always sort of been this perceived preference of putin and trump versus the bad blood that's been widely discussed with putin and clinton but if
11:34 am
colin powell speaks critically of trump if it were to be russia, why would they want to publicize his feelings? >> the russians are talented but they don't have a subtle understanding of our policy. it's an advantage to us. they use a hammer when they should use a scalpel. if they're behind this it's a sign they don't understand us. this has helped hillary clinton and weakened donald trump. >> final thought from you. >> that's correct. the russian intel apparatus has had a shotgun approach. if we go after one potential source they're pitching p inings of sources and say "what sticks against the wall?" to this day they have a hard time playing a subtle game but if they keep at it, i suspect we are going to see a barrage of
11:35 am
leaked e-mails. >> which could be the october surprise. >> exactly. it's important for people to understand it's consistent with the way the russians have operated since the cold war. they've never felt the cold war ended. >> mike baker, tim neftali, pleasure, thank you both. matthew chance, thank you very much to you as well in russia for us. up next, moments ago bill clinton talking about hillary clinton's health including an update on her battle with pneumonia. she's been off the trail resting up. also ahead, politics and fiery discussion. see what happens when i talk to voters inside this atlanta barbershop. across new york state, from long island to buffalo, from rochester to the hudson valley, from albany to utica, creative business incentives, infrastructure investment, university partnerships, and the lowest taxes in decades are creating a stronger economy

11:40 am
and all kinds of perspectives so i wanted to make sure i wanted to hear from all sides so i was in atlanta this week, i heard about trump, i heard about clinton and the impact of the black vote on this year's election. you are about to hear more of our candid conversation, six people including michael render, a.k.a. killer mike, a rapper and activist and the owner. taj baul, a firefighter. jamida orange whose father marched with martin luther king, jr. a local leader who isn't voting on a national level period and christine white, an attorney who is all in for hillary clinton. here's the second piece of our conversation when african-american issues are at the forefront. >> you're voting local but not for president. >> absolutely. >> you're voting for hillary clinton. >> i'm definitely voting for hillary clinton. >> i'm voting for donald trump. i'm voting if for whoever gives me something. if i had to vote on ideal
11:41 am
whoever on that day moves the needle closer to ending unemployment in my community, helping education in my community and giving us a fair shake -- >> donald trump says he will go into these neighborhoods, he will help with the economy, he will help bring jobs. >> he said all of that. everything mike just asked for. >> no, no, he said that so that we'll look at him but he's not talking to us at all. he's talking to those white women moderates to say, hey, i'm not racist. >> really? >> i truly believe that. he ain't talking to us for real. >> why would he talk to us and insult us? it's a complete insult and i don't think -- >> to tell you the facts. >> i don't need him to tell me the facts of my community that i live in. i don't need you to be berate me about my community. if you're not going to come with solutions, i don't want to hear what you have to say. >> i will give you solutions. first of all, go to ponce de leone in home depot, 6:30, you'll see a group of african-americans looking for
11:42 am
contract work. >> they truly. >> and a group of hispanics looking for work. by 9:00 the hispanics are all gone, the brothers are still standing there. so if you start to rail in illegal immigration, you will provide more jobs for african-american men in particular. do not tell me these are jobs men won't do. >> so now we're sacrificing hispanics? >> we're not sacrificing anybody. we're talking about with the plan for black people. >> my plan for black people doesn't include splitting up families. >> i'm talking about railing in illegal immigration. helping unemployment, charter schools. >> one of the most crucial aspects of educational reform are charter schools, we know they work, question may not like them but we know they're charter schools doing yeoman work in our communities. >> charter schools is a new hustle. come on, man. we got puffy -- >> they don't work! they don't work. >> are the kids getting educated? >> no. everyone knows i'm not pro-charter but i have a nephew, charter schools gave my sister a
11:43 am
radically different kid. >> i'm from atlanta, we are indoctrinated with dr. martin luther king, we are indoctrinated from him. jamida's father was an organizer, he taught me to organize. this was the first person to lith rally call me leader. he was not passive in his wheel to push forward. >> but we're fighting about taking a knee. >> exactly. that's what i'm saying. you want us to be concerned with that and the fact that the black boy, he took the knee, right, he took the knee, sold you more jerseys and your punk ass should have been out there with him. i don't even care about the hillster or the donster. what are we going to demand? >> we're so uninformed because we have such an an allegiance to the democratic party. >> the democratic party was the klan's party at first. the slaves were freed by abe lincoln who was a republican. so we got this whole
11:44 am
democrat/republican thing mixed up. >> we are married to the democratic party. we can't front. as much junk as i talk, at the end of the day if i vote more likely i'll vote on the democratic side because they cut the only deals we have. >> is that taken for granted? >> yes. >> absolutely. >> yes. >> we have to protest. >> vote on the local level. >> i'm not saying we don't. but i'm saying for the first time in our life we have an opportunity to tell the democratic party we might stay home. >> i think there are a lot of folks voting for the sake of voting. your father, dr. king and all these folks, they didn't fight for the right to vote just to cast a ballot, they fought for our self-determination. >> i don't want -- i want black people talking about -- voting is a blood oath. it's a blood oath. i will never not vote locally. but, but, i'm not going to let you pea in a cup and tell me it's lemonade. >> absolutely. >> i refuse to not demand something in exchange for my vote. that's it. >> what do you think of these conversations?

a university of north carolina football player has turned himself in less than 24 hours after his accuser held a news conference to tell her story. cnn does not usually name alleged victims of any kind of assault but this case sophomore delaney robinson came out publicly and claims that linebacker alan artis sexually assaulted her. she says she decided to break her silence because after months of waiting for authorities to press charges she finally took matters into her own hands. robinson walked into court, she told her story to a judge and that judge determined there was enough evidence to move forward and issued a warrant for artis to be arrested.

robinson said that from the night she was raped the justice system has treated her like the suspect. >> yes, i was drinking that night on valentine's day. i'm underage and i take responsibility for that but that doesn't give anyone the right to violate me. i didn't ask to be raped. after i was raped i went to the hospital and gave an account to what i could remember from the sexual assault nurse then i was quizzed again by a dps investigator who asked demeaning and accusatory questions, what was i wearing, what was i drinking, how much did i drink. what did i eat that day, did i lead him on, have i hooked up with him before, do i often have one night stands, did i even say

no, what is my sexual history, how many men have i slept with. i was treated like a suspect. >> i have brynn gingras standing by live in north carolina for us. also joining me is cnn legal analyst joey jackson and, full disclosure, unc chapel hill is my alma mater, this is personal. we know artis was charged with misdemeanor sexual battery and assault on a female. you just talked to the d.a., what do they say? >> yeah, i talked to the d.a., brooke, and even just more recently i want to bring your attention to the fact that we were just in the courthouse. he had a court appearance, he didn't have to be there, his lawyer appeared for him but that was a formality. the next court date was set for later this month and he's out on $5,000 bond. also important to note his defense attorney snuck out a back door so we didn't get to ask him any questions about his side of the story which is what we're waiting to hear. as for the d.a., what you were

asking, he's sort of kind of bewildered by this, he says "our investigation wasn't complete so we're acting in a way we don't know what to do next, we need to look into it." because they had to still work through their investigation before she went ahead and had these misdemeanor charges filed. but it's important to note that delaney robinson says "i did everything that i was supposed to do." after this happened she went to get a rape kit done, she talked to investigators, had pictures taken, she went through this and felt that the d.a.'s office was dragging its feet. here's what the d.a. told me. >> is there evidence that prove this is case beyond a reasonable doubt? i think the unc police department has been working in that vein. and it can take a long time in certain cases to gather that type of evidence. >> he says that case was still open and it's unclear where they
11:53 am
go, the d.a.'s office, from here. >> joey, let me turn to you on a legal perspective. what struck me is that here she is speaking publicly in front of cameras, this is never really done. >> it really isn't and good for her that she should do it. we want to point out that unlike other cases we've talked about, brooke, there have been cases, for example, in california we've talked about brock turner. >> stanford university. >> absolutely. this is an accusation at this point. and what's going on is they're parallel investigations. what am i referring to? the district attorney's office is investigating the case, apparently they've been doing so since february, she feels they're dragging their feet and she has serious concerns which is why she went to a magistrate. i should also point out under north carolina a citizen can go forward in front of a judge, allege facts that are sufficient to show there's probable cause to believe that a crime was committed and based upon that they can haul you into court. the other thing we should point

out, the parallel investigation, the school itself under title ix is required under federal law to do an investigation themselves and the distinction is you heard the d.a. there, the district attorney said in a criminal case you have to prove this happened beyond a reasonable doubt, high standard. the title ix investigation is is it more likely than not it happened? one belongs to the school, university of north carolina chapel hill and the other belongs to the district attorney. what happens next depends upon the evidence they gather and whether they believe, the district attorney, that they can prove this case. >> brynn, stay on it for us. brynn gingras in north carolina, joey jackson, thank you to both of you. back to politics, donald trump sharing some of his results of his physical with dr. oz today, what did they show? we'll tell you coming up.
