7:00 am
it has facial recognition technology. and so all you do is turn it on, it's going to hover, it's going to find my face, carol, and i can move around, and it will basically follow me around. it's basically the unending selfie. if you need a selfie, this is a great product for you, you can just walk around and you constantly have a camera on you at all times. it shoots 4k video. this is incredible. >> it is so weird. it's like a weird kind of pet. okay. we'll expect to see that video, i'm sure it's fantastic. andy scholes reporting live for us this morning, thank you. the next hour of "cnn newsroom" starts now. and good morning, i'm carol costello, thank you so much for joining me. in just a couple of hours donald trump will be face-to-face with intelligence chiefs he slammed for weeks. trump and vice president-elect mike pence will be briefed by the director of national intelligence, the heads of the
7:01 am
fbi, cia, and nsa, on a new report detailing russia's cyber attack, meddling in the u.s. election, one day after a new report detailing russia's hacking included intercepted conversations of russian officials celebrating trump's win, even congratulating each other. trump is also meeting today with magazine editors including "vogue"'s chief, a vocal hillary clinton fundraiser. we begin with cnn national correspondent jason carroll, live outside trump tower. good morning, jason. >> reporter: good morning, carol. that meeting is set to begin at 12:30 with all these intelligence officials that donald trump has basically been criticizing over the past few weeks. during that congressional hearing yesterday it became very, very evident that his continued questioning of the intelligence that is out there about the russian cyber attacks has been hurting the intelligence community,
7:02 am
undermining the community, hurting morale. that was made very clear during congressional hearings yesterday. having said that, kellyanne conway early this morning on "new day" speaking to our own chris cuomo made it very clear in her eyes that the president-elect is not going easy on russia. >> he's not sheltering russia. and don't you say that again. he's not sheltering russia. >> how is he not? i don't understand how the legitimate answer to the question is to blame the current president. >> i'm not blaming the current president. i'm asking you a question. all of a sudden we're all frothing about russia. do you think president obama's legacy vis-à-vis russia is going to be one of a tough guy? >> let's say it's terrible. it's say the legacy of obama and russia couldn't be worse. how is president-elect trump helping by ignoring russia's role in the hacks in the election? >> it's going to help, the russians didn't want him elected because he has said very clearly during the campaign and as
7:03 am
president-elect that he is going to modernize our nuclear capability, that he is going to call for an increased defense budget, he'll have all and gas exploration, all of which goes against russia's economic and military interests. donald trump got elected in part because the american people want a tougher leader in the white house. >> reporter: despite all the back and forth, carol, 17 intelligence agencies have already come to the conclusion that russia was indeed behind the cyber attacks and did try to affect the u.s. election. trump for his part tweeting on a number of issues this morning including one of his biggest campaign promises, and that's to build the wall in the u.s./mexico border. as you recall, he would chant over and over throughout the campaign that mexico is going to pay for this wall. but now what we're hearing from gop officials is that actually that trump is going to be asking for american taxpayers to foot the bill, at least at first,
7:04 am
that according to donald trump. he tweeted about it this morning, just to clarify, saying the following: "the dishonest media does not report that any money spent on building the great wall for sake of speed will be paid back by mexico later." trump's critics are already saying, what does that mean, does that mean mexico would pay it back in a year, two years? a number of his critics, as you can imagine, carol, not confident that mexico would end up paying the u.s. back for that wall. not only will trump be having that meeting on cyber security but he'll also be meeting with editors at conde-nast. that should be taking place just about now. >> jason carroll live from trump tower, thanks. today's briefing comes after yesterday's marathon hearing on capitol hill where intelligence officials defended themselves
7:05 am
against donald trump's criticisms. >> i've been in public service for many years, i've never seen anything like this in my lifetime. the fact that the president-elect is tweeting on this issue and taking it to the public and in many ways undermining the credibility of the very intelligence agencies that have to provide information to him in order for him to be president of the united states, this is just unheard of and unprecedented. >> for more on this, let's bring in cnn's phil mattingly, live in washington. good morning, phil. >> reporter: good morning, carol. as you know, there aren't exactly reams of bipartisan areas where both sides seem to get along, except here, yesterday. in the hearing, you noted there were 2 1/2 hours where intelligence chiefs not only clearly rejected what the
7:06 am
president-elect trump has suggested, but you saw senators from both parties doing that as well. also what you saw was senators and intelligence officials laying the groundwork for that meeting today with the president-elect. obviously a closed-door meeting, transition officials say it starts at 12:30. we're getting a sense for what the president-elect will be looking for, what he'll be asking about as he heads into that meeting, as skeptical as he's been up to this point. take a listen to future press secretary sean spicer. >> there's a question that needs to get asked. the dnc says the fbi never looked at their server. the question is, regardless of who is right or wrong, if the server was never looked at, how do you in the intelligence community come to this conclusion? it's a fair question to ask. he'll ask questions, not questioning the intelligence but how the conclusions were arrived at. >> reporter: what you hear from sean spicer there is kind of the doubt that has been sewn by the
7:07 am
president-elect and his team. the interesting element here is this. when you talk to trump transition officials, they say the biggest frustration on the president-elect is the continued questioning of the legitimacy of his election. you hear that from democrats. where you don't hear that from is from intelligence officials. james clapper, director of national intelligence, saying repeatedly yesterday during that hearing, this didn't change votes, they don't have any indication whatsoever that it may have. but you saw again last night from the president-elect tweeting out, as leaks were coming out about this final report that would be presented to president obama, that he has questions whether the intelligence community is being political, whether that's why these leaks are happening. that's what's surrounding this meeting today in just a couple of hours. >> oh, to be a fly on the wall. phil mattingly live from washington, thanks so much. malcolm nance is a former u.s. intelligence officer and the author of "the plot to hack
7:08 am
america." david brody, welcome to both of you. so the dnc didn't turn their servers over to the fbi, a third party did, both of you say it's only a deflection. >> the assets are strategic assets or human intelligence it' assets. we collect against our targets. the intelligence we're going to get is going to be from the actual systems that penetrated the dnc system. so, you know, we know that fsb, former russian intelligence, which is the old kgb, and russian gru military intelligence hackers, are going
7:09 am
into a united states entity, we're going to focus on those hackers. >> so that's standard operating procedure. >> yes. nine out of ten times the fbi doesn't actually have to look at the server. this is normal. so it's really deflection and spin. >> why do you think they're still spinning before this intelligence briefing? why not just stop, listen, and then talk? >> i have a lot of -- a lot of people in the intelligence community who come to me every day. and, you know, former u.s. ambassador to russia michael mcfall made a good statement, he said this has moved from the ludicrous to the suspicious, these denials have gone to being a coverup, it's gone from silly to suspicious to whatever is the only thing left. >> suspicious in what way? >> the absolute vehement denials, they defend russia, he
7:10 am
is acting as the defense lawyer for russian intelligence and a former director of the kgb, is absolutely amazing. anyone else in my community who would ever speak like this, there would be a counterintelligence investigation going on that would be ripping their lives apart. >> you heard what kellyanne conway said, david, she said russia is more afraid of donald trump than hillary clinton because donald trump is muscular when it comes to national defense, he wants to, you know, make america's nuclear arsenal better, right, and -- i don't understand what she meant about the oil, because didn't exxon want to drill oil in russia and that would benefit -- but anyway, what do you think about that, is that possible? >> the most evidence we have are these tweets. there's been a clear pattern that he's tweeted negatively and aggressively toward china and had a much more positive tone in his tweets towards russia. to be fair to trump, what
7:11 am
matters is what he does after january 20th. and the key question is these new sanctions, and the previously existing sanctions that obama put in regarding crimea. if he loosens those sanctions or weakness them anyway, then you'll have a lot of questions asked about what he's done. this could be -- you know, i'm trying to be fair. people say the president-elect is thin-skinned, he feels the intelligence reports question the legitimacy of his election win. maybe that's just it. or is he very sympathetic towards russia and he'll reduce these sanctions? we'll see what he does. >> the latest bit of information to come out of these intelligence briefings is that russian officials were captured celebrating and congratulating themselves on trump's win. which could mean nothing at all. >> well, i certainly wouldn't want to discuss anything related to special intelligence. but with regards to russia's beliefs, we have seen throughout the course of this election that
7:12 am
donald trump's adamant support for russia and supposedly wanting to reset the relationship with russia, there is nothing wrong with that for a president or prospective president of the united states to want to help u.s./russian relations. it's the methodologies that russia used to influence this election and trump's approval of it. he went from what michael morell, former deputy director of the cia said, an unwitting asset, he went witting on july 27th when he said, russia, if you're listening, release hillary clinton's hacked e-mails. he knew at that point that russia was working in his favor to get him elected. >> you don't think that was just a joke? because that's what he said it was. >> within four weeks the cia came to the conclusion that russia was doing this. this would have taken a very large what we would call an information warfare management cell by russian intelligence to get all of that stolen information out, turned over to wikileaks. it was released with great precision in time to support donald trump. the u.s. intelligence came to that conclusion.
7:13 am
the president warned russia but any further interference. now the questions that are only left to be asked are, what did donald trump's campaign know, what did he know it, and was he cooperating or co-opted in any way to support this. >> agree? >> yes. we've been looking at this for months, there have been rumors swirling since july. we haven't been able to confirm any secret channel between the trump campaign and russia. we have to see what happens over time. you hope that intelligence, and frankly law enforcement, the fbi, the department of justice, would be looking at anything like this. to be fair to the trump campaign, i don't know of any proof of any direct communication or any sort of coordination with moscow. >> maybe we'll know more after all these intelligence briefings. unfortunately i have to leave it there. malcolm, david, thank you very much. build that wall. a familiar chant during donald trump's rallies. his supporters may soon get their wish but they may also have to put up the money to make it happen.

7:17 am
7:18 am
critics say donald trump is going back on a key campaign promise that pledged to build a wall and make mexico pay for it. >> i would build a great wall, and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me. and i build them very inexpensively. i will build a great, great wall on our southern border. and i will have mexico pay for that wall. mark my words. >> but as it turns out, taxpayers, as in you, could ultimately foot the bill. trump's transition team is hinting they'll ask congress to pay for the wall or find a way to pay for the wall with mexico reimbursing the united states later, a plan trump first talked about in october. >> remember, i said mexico is paying for the wall, with the full understanding that the country of mexico will be reimbursing the united states
7:19 am
for the full cost of such a wall, okay? we're going to have the wall. mexico's going to pay for the wall. >> okay. so let's talk about this. i'm joined by cnn political commentator david swerdling, and jackie kucinich. welcome to both of you. david, should taxpayers be surprised that they will foot the bill for mr. trump's wall at least for now? >> i don't think people should be too surprised, carol. and i don't think that this is going to be the issue that sort of trips up president trump, even though during the campaign he did backtrack and flip-flop on a variety of issues. when it came to building the wall and making mexico pay for it, i don't think people took at least this one particular campaign pledge that seriously. what the supporters who supported donald trump got and what they liked is that he
7:20 am
talked tough with mexico, he's the guy who put his finger in mexico's chest and said, i'm going to build the wall and make you pay for it. whether or not we wind up paying for it ourselves, i don't think this is what is going to trip up president-elect trump. i think a bigger problem is a trend where he's allowed waffling on this issue, to look soft on the relationship between him and putin, on the affordable care act, these things will start adding up. we're not even to the inauguration yet and it's clear he's softened his stance on a variety of fronts. >> jackie, is david right, will taxpayers care that they'll have to foot an $8 billion billi8 bi that wall? >> he's talking about infrastructure spending, he's talking about cutting taxes,
7:21 am
he's talking about doing a range of things that isn't bringing in money. i know house republicans especially, they're going to want these things paid for. how they do that is going to be an open question. they don't want to go back to the days of the last republican majority where they increased the debt, spent a bunch of money, then got booted out of office for a number of reasons but also because of how much they were spending. so it really is -- i think the overall price tag is going to start weighing on him and being problematic. >> so david, what if, because this is one of mr. trump's ideas, he said he was going to impose a tariff on mexico, that's how he would force mexico to pay for the wall. good idea? >> i don't think a trade war with mexico or china or any other country is a good idea. that is his prerogative, if he can implement that and get the republican congress behind him.
7:22 am
but i don't think most of congress would describe that as a good idea. there was a reason free trade was supported by both republican house speaker paul ryan and democratic president barack obama. big picture, long term, that was in the economic interests of the united states. i think jackie is totally right that what this comes down to ultimately, whether you're talking about the tariff or the wall, is whether or not republicans in congress will challenge president-elect trump or whether they'll go along. >> okay. so let's talk about the physical wall, because if the united states builds a physically wall, the costs could balloon to what, $25 billion by some estimates, right? so will the wall, jackie, be more like a fence? >> that is an open question, carol. but one of your guests earlier today made the point that a lot of people who come into this country and end up overstaying their visas come in via plane. so it isn't really clear how much this will actually fix at
7:23 am
the end of the day too. that will certainly be part of the debate as well as what sort of form this wall actually manifests itself in. >> because visas are a problem too, people overstaying their visas, david. why not concentrate on that first instead of making the taxpayers foot a bill for $8 billion before knowing how you'll pay for it, or before you reimburse them, i should say. >> right. illegal immigration is a big problem, congress tried to address it a couple of years ago, it get through the senate, not the house. build a wall and make mexico pay for it is a nice slogan, a catchy slogan in any case, but it doesn't address the issues. as you point out, visa overstays where people come by air or by sea, or the fact that right now we have net negative migration coming from mexico. we still have -- or from south
7:24 am
and central america. we still have a lot of undocumented immigrants in this country from all over the world, not just mexico. but it's not necessarily that the wall is a cure-all for that problem. >> i've got to leave it there. david swerdlick, jackie kucinich, thanks to both of you. still to come, speaker ryan vows to threaten planned parenthood funding. up next, the number two democrat in the house weighs in. oh, are you reading why people put milk on cereal? why does your tummy go "grumbily, grumbily, grumbily"? why is it all (mimics a stomach grumble) no more questions for you! ooph, that milk in your cereal was messing with you, wasn't it? yeah, happens to more people than you think... try lactaid, it's real milk, without that annoying lactose. good, right? mmm, yeah. i got your back. lactaid. it's the milk that doesn't mess with you.

7:29 am
thank you so much for joining me. in the last hour, north carolina's governor declared a state of emergency. the carolinas expected to get hit especially hard by a snowstorm headed southeast. in chattanooga, tennessee, the winter weather is already rolling in. chad myers, i expect people are scared and miserable. >> i just got a picture from my wife, there's no celery left. how do you sell out of celery? >> people are going to buy groceries. >> exactly. but the place is a desert. it looks like the old soviet union when there was no food on the shelves. anyway, yes, people are freaking out across the south, carol, as expected, i guess. we expect this because if we're stuck in our houses for 12 hours, you definitely need extra food around. there's sleet coming in for atlanta and the carolinas. but there is a lot of snow coming to the north of that
7:30 am
sleet event. winter storm warnings all the way from mississippi all the way almost to delaware. those warnings include rain for the south part, sleet and freezing rain, a significant batch of maybe one inch deep sleet could be out there, that could be harder to drive on than snow. north of that is where the snow is. a lot of this storm will be rain. we're going to talk about 90% of all the precip that falls will be liquid rain in the warm air. 33 and above. just to the north there's a fine line where we're going to get to 32 and we're going to get that sleet, we're going to get the freezing rain. sleet is frozen by the time it hits. it hits your window and you hear it. freezing rain means it freezes when it hits. that's even more tough to drive on than snow. we'll keep watching for you. i think raleigh could be eight to 12, charlotte could certainly be eight. atlanta, somewhere between two and four, downtown, one to two, because there could be an inch of sleet on the ground before the snow false ls on top of it.
7:31 am
we're on the line between rain, freezing rain, sleet, and snow, on and off, all night long, one thing after another, if you don't like it, wait five minutes and it will change. >> is there an emergency plan in place in the city of atlanta? because you know what happened during the last storm, it wasn't pretty. >> you can look online and see all the schools that are leaving early or that closed early. people are going home. we don't have the resources, we're not going to spend billions of dollars on a thousand snowplows and salt trucks, there's no reason for it if you only use it once every three years. the emergency plan is to get everyone home safe, not like last year, stuck on the roads for hours. >> that was so awful, and i lived it with you. chad myers, thanks so much. i'll be right back. listerine® kills 99% of bad breath germs for a 100% fresh mouth. feeling 100% means you feel bold enough to... ...assist a magician... ...or dance. listerine®. bring out the bold™

on the day a handful of house democrats put forth one final challenge to donald trump's electoral college win, trump's special adviser kellyanne conway says it is time democrats stop trying to delegitimize trump's victory. >> speaking of disparagement, i really believe there are those out there that are trying to -- there are those out there trying to delegitimize his presidency, review the election results. and you know it. >> all right. let's bring in house minority whip congressman steny hoyer, welcome, sir. >> hi. >> hi. thanks for being here. so congressman, normally there is a process in congress that's a routine matter, but a small group of democrats plan to challenge the eligibility of some of trump's electors. do you support that effort? >> i think under the rules you
7:37 am
have to have a senator and a house member. as i understand it, we don't have that existing. so yes, some democrats will be raising issues. clearing the issue of the russian involvement in the election raises substantial issues as to the credibility of the election. nobody's doubting that under the rules, donald trump has been elected president of the united states. but the issue of russian involvement, which the cia, the fbi, and the director of national intelligence all agree occurred, that the russians were involved in the election, and generally they agree that they were involved on the side of hurting hillary clinton. whether it was for helping donald trump remains to be seen. but i think a number of democrats will raise this issue, and that ought to be resolved to determine whether or not there was a legitimate information available to the american public
7:38 am
and to the electors when they voted for donald trump for president. >> but congressman, this effort is probably doomed to fail. and you heard what kellyanne conway says. this whole thing about russia and the intelligence briefings are just an effort to delegitimize trump's presidency. and isn't what's happening in the halls of congress today -- >> carol, i heard what kellyanne said. i want everybody who is watching this show to juxtapose that had donald trump lost the election, that the allegation was that the russians had participated in the election to hurt donald trump, that donald trump had received 2.8 million more votes than hillary clinton but the electoral college elected hillary clinton, i want everybody to honestly think to themselves, what would donald trump's reaction have been? it would have been far
7:39 am
surpassing in terms of alleging fixed elections, crookedness, bad procedure, russian involvement. the fact is the allegations raised by the intelligence agencies of the united states are very serious, need to be pursued. i think they will have no ultimate effect today. i agree with that. donald trump will be elected president-elect today by the electoral college. but we ought not to leave this matter untouched. it is a great threat to the american democracy, not just to republicans, not just to democrats. but if in fact the allegations are true, then it is a very, very serious issue that must be pursued as vigorously as possible, investigated to its final conclusion. >> congressman. >> yes. >> do you believe that the russian were in part responsible for hillary clinton's loss?
7:40 am
>> i don't think there's any doubt that if the russians targeted the dnc, other people in the campaign for hillary clinton, and that in fact we found that putin was involved and directed this and allowed this to happen, then i think yes, there is a serious question. and i think that clearly that, and i agree that the comey letter also had an impact, and that was not, i don't think, influenced by the russians, i want to make that very clear. >> just because hillary clinton ran a bad campaign or didn't make visits to the places she needed to to win the election, i.e. michigan and wisconsin. >> if anybody had said the campaign run by donald trump would have been a good campaign, a winning campaign, two years ago, any political consultant would say, no, no, that will never work. in fact it did work. i think hillary clinton ran a good campaign. but there is no doubt that she
7:41 am
was plagued by the political investigations that occurred in the house of representatives regarding benghazi and the e-mails. none of which resulted in any finding of wrongdoing. the fbi found no wrongdoing. and do i think that hillary clinton could have done things that she didn't do that may have had a more positive result? i think the answer to that is probably yes. but i think the answer to that in every campaign, in every campaign, particularly losing campaigns, is probably yes. when you win, your mistakes and foibles are forgotten. when you lose, every possible failure can be pointed to as the result. >> congressman, last question for you. donald trump is going to have these intelligence briefings today, monday we're all going to be briefed on what intelligence agencies found out about the russian hacking. if donald trump doesn't accept what the intelligence services
7:42 am
tell him, what do you think should happen? >> i think there's a real danger that is occurring where donald trump is either not getting briefings because he thinks they're irrelevant and he knows more than the intelligence agencies, or he has the intelligence agency briefings and denies their finding and rejects their finding and undermines the confidence they have in themselves and undermines the confidence americans have in their intelligence agencies. if that happens, that will be dangerous for our country. there will be a disconnect between the commander in chief and our intelligence agencies. that doesn't mean the intelligence agencies are always right. but to publicly ridiculous them, to publicly undermine them, to publicly display a lack of confidence in our intelligence agencies is a very, very bad action of the president-elect, in my opinion. and it undermines our security. >> we have to leave it there,
7:43 am
congressman steny hoyer, thank you so much for being with me this morning. i'll be right back. ever try something so good,

7:47 am
the glitz and glam of awards season is here, the 74th annual golden globe awards kicks off this sunday. cnn's stephanie elam has more. >> reporter: the glitz. the glamour. the golden globes. hollywood's annual kickoff to awards season looks to honor the best in film and television. with seven nominations, "la la land" leads the pack on the motion picture front. >> it's very exciting. >> it takes a very traditional medium, the hollywood musical, which has been around for a century, and it really does reinvent it for a modern audience. >> reporter: the emma stone and ryan gosling movie is up for
7:48 am
best motion picture musical or cold alongside "20th century women," "deadpool," and "sing street." "moonlight," a coming of age film, has six nominations, including one for best motion picture drama, along with "hacksaw bridge" and "manchester by the sea." with five nods, "the people versus o.j. simpson: american crime story" dominates the tv category, including nomination for best mini series or television movie. for the fourth year, "game of thrones" is up for best drama series. the epic fantasy will face after with newcomers "the crown," "stranger things," and "westworld." taking a stab at master of ceremonies duties this year, jimmy fallon. >> i'm practicing wearing it every single night and just handing out awards to random people. >> reporter: the late night host
7:49 am
follows ricky gervais and tina fey and amy wohlor. from first to last, the show should live up to its title as hollywood's biggest party. stephanie elam, cnn, hollywood. the day after president-elect trump is inaugurated, hundreds of thousands of women will take dc by storm. they have one mission in mind: send a bold message to government on mr. trump's first day in office. 200,000 women are expected to attend. joining me are co-chairs of the women's march on washington, welcome to both of you. you guys don't belong to any political group. yet 200,000 women? like, how did you do that? >> so really a woman by the name of theresa from hawaii put up a post and sent it to 40 of her friends. and when she woke up, 10,000
7:50 am
women were joining her in washington, dc. and so there were other women who also had kind of felt this despair after the election and wanted to find hope. this woman gave her blessing to another co-founder of the march. we've been organizing to ensure we have a solid mission and that we're working towards a program. we have buses that can be parked somewhere. >> you're in charge of buses. >> don't trigger me with the bus conversation. to your point, this is a grassroots effort. because we don't belong to any political groups, we have to loyalties to political groups, we're able to show what ordinary americans are capable of doing. this is going to be from the grassroots up. we have bus coordinators across the country in over 45 states. we have about 144 sister marches happening mostly here in the united states but also globally in europe and places like australia.
7:51 am
we have so many exciting people, america ferrera. >> harry bell aafonte is one of our co-chairs. >> what is the point, what is that bold message that you want to send to the trump administration? >> i mean, look, you cannot ignore, and we're saying 200,000 conservatively, just based on the number of buses that we have. there could be random people and buses that we don't know about yet. we will not be ignored. we want our president-elect and the new administration and our congress and senate, this is not just about donald trump, this is about our government in total, that we are women, we will protect the most vulnerable amongst us, we are intersectional human beings, we are impacted by so many issues, including reproductive rights but also issues of immigration, racial justice, religious freedom issues. we'll be out there, from climate
7:52 am
