tv New Day Saturday CNN January 7, 2017 4:00am-5:01am PST
start at 4:35 eastern. then the lions kicking off at 8:15. christi, the holidays are over but it's still the most wonderful time of the year. three days of football. finishing offer with the national title game. i love this time of year, christi. >> in your glory. we love to see that, thank you, coy. next hour of "new day" starts right now. >> and there were four that i heard, bam, bam, bam. >> these people started running out said somebody is shooting, shooting. >> i felt something hit my back. the bullet had entered my backpack, hit my laptop. >> we have the shooter in custody at this point it looks. >> the intelligence community's report on russian hacking concluded that, quote, putin and the russian government developed a clear preference for president-elect trump. >> we are not going to tolerate a country like russia trying to enter severe in our election process. >> we're going to take
aggressive action to combat cyber attacks. and protect the security of the american people. ♪ it's good to have your company as always, i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. good to be with you. we're follow two developing stories, first the shooting at the airport in ft. lauderdale. new details of the man accused of opening fire, killing five people, wounding several others. the question is who is esteban santiago? what led this iraq war veteran to allegedly unload a checked pistol into a crowd, sparking chaos inside that terminal. also this morning -- ordered by putin. a declassified intelligence report showing how the president directed an influenced campaign, it's called. the goal, they say, to hurt hillary clinton and help donald trump. we've got new reaction overnight from the president-elect on this stunning report.
first to new details inside a florida airport, though. new images just into cnn, showing police escorting a handcuffed esteban santiago to jail there on the left. the fbi said santiago and the iraq war veteran unloaded a hand gone inside a crowded terminal of ft. lauderdale hollywood airport. this airport has reopened up. cnn's rachel crane is live inside the airport. she has new information agency well. rachel, good morning. what are you learning? >> reporter: well, christi, things are starting to get back to normal here at ft. lauderdale hollywood airport. it has reopened. behind me, a plane is about to take off. the first one we've seen take off today. we've seen a steady stream of passengers coming through the airport. but first, the focus for law enforcement would be the investigation. >> okay. they want to us hold for the tango line. guess there's firing going on in
the terminal. >> reporter: chaos and confusion at ft. lauderdale's airport. after a gunman opened fire inside a baggage claim area. killing five people and seriously wounding eight more. some people fleeing the scene ran away from danger on to the airport tarmac. >> there was one real close one next to me. and then there was four that i heard, bam, bam, bam, bam. it was like boom. we didn't know what it was. everybody looked. boom, boom, boom, boom. and then people taking off. >> reporter: the splgt identified as 26-year-old esteban santiago apparently had a. weed in his checked bag. one source said he went to the bathroom to get the gun out of his luggage and came out firing. he was taken into federal custody shortly after the attack. >> he is unharmed. no law enforcement fired any shots. the subject is being interviewed by a team of fbi agents and broward sheriff office homicide
detectives. >> reporter: this morning, new information about santiago who through to florida from alaska friday. he served in the puerto rico national guard. the army reserve. and the alaska national guard. he was deployed to iraq in 2010 where he received a combat related honor. santiago was discharged from the alaska army national guard in august. law enforcement officials said santiago visited an fbi office in anchorage several months ago. he was accompanied by associates who are concerned because santiago said he was hearing voices. santiago told the fbi that an intelligence agency was telling him to watch isis videos. the fbi asked local police to take him to the hospital for a mental evaluation. santiago voluntarily checked himself in. authorities are now working to determine the motive. and if it's terror-related. they say it's a complex investigation that stems several states. >> we are looking at all
avenues. we have not ruled out terrorism. and we will be pursuing every angle to try to determine the motive behind this attack. and any associates, any connections, communication. >> reporter: as we pointed out, this investigation does span several states. and we do know that yesterday, the fbi spoke to santiago's aunt who lives in union city, new jersey, to try to get a better sense of who he is. and what he was interested. also we know that the fbi has not ruled out terrorism. and there will be a briefing held here at ft. lauderdale hollywood international airport later this morning. hopefully, more information will be revealed then. but meanwhile, one of the main challenges for officials here at the airport is returning the some 20,000 bags that were left behind during the evacuation. christi. >> all right. rachel crane, thank you very much. the fbi says the suspected gunman followed the law by
bringing his weapon in a checked bag. >> cnn's rene marsh has more on u.s. security rules involving guns on planes and in airports. >> christi and victor, he retrieved his checked luggage in baggage claim. and sources say esteban santiago went into the bathroom and emerged firing the gun. now, it is legal in some states to carry a gun and sam in addition in your checked luggage only. tsa has very strict guidelines on this. and by all accounts, the shooter followed all of the procedures. airport police in anchorage, alaska, where he originated, said that the suspect declared the gun before the flight, and had it in a proper casing and stored it properly in his checked luggage. again, those guidelines are very strict. the firearm has to be unloaded. it has to be stored in a hard-sided case. that case has to be locked. and only the passenger can have the key or the combination to that case. and it has to be declared at the
ticket counter. he followed all of those rules but, again, it appears as if he took advantage of the fact that every airport across the country has a soft target. there are all parts of the airport before the security check point. it's a nonvulnerability. and law enforcement officials say it's virtually gobble to get that vulnerability down to zero. christi and victor. >> rene, thank you so much. new this morning, president-elect donald trump is claiming the democratic national committee is in part responsible for last year's cyberhack. but mr. trump is still not -- let's say he's reluctant to say that russia is responsible for the hacks on the u.s. political system, this despite receiving a full briefing on the dlafed version of an intelligence report which says those efforts were recorded directly by russian president vladimir putin. cnn's sunlen serfaty is there with the very latest outside of trump tower. good morning, sunlen.
>> reporter: good morning, victor, yeah, donald trump hitting that high-level intelligence briefing here at trump tower yesterday, afterwards, he called the meeting constructive, but notably, he's still refusing to acknowledge the intelligence community's findings and conclusions that russia was nonld behind the hack but behind the hack to influence the election. rather, we saw trump's response this morning on twitter and overnight, trying to focus on pointing the finger at the democratic national committee for what he believes is less efforts by them to really protect themselves. here's a tweet he sent out last night, quote, gross negligence by the democratic national committee allowed hacking to take place. the republican national committee had strong defense. now, lawmakers on capitol hill have been, of course, sharply rebuking this trump comment, especially democrats. this from adam schiff who
tweeted in response to trump. quote, gross negligence by donald trump to urge foreign adversary to hack opponent's campaign. worse, the neps to deny it when russia did. and many democrats and members of donald trump's own party, many republicans are also calling for further investigation into this hack. now, the president-elect for his part said he will appoint a team, within 90 days of taking the miscellaneous to really look into cyber attacks and more broadly cyber attacks at large. >> sunlen, we now have an official from sources, but the trump transition team has announced they've made a selection for the next director of national intelligence. tell us what you we know about retired senator dan coats. >> reporter: that's right, guys. this is something that the trump condition team formally announcing this morning, although cnn reporting it in the last 24 hours, dan coats would go on to be -- to be taking
place, having a large role in the intel community now if potentially confirmed by the senate. a little bit about dan coats, he retired from the senate after not seeking re-election. he was in the senate a decade from 1989 to 1999. he left to become ambassador to germany under george w. bush's administration. >> sunlen serfaty there at trump tower. thank you so much. the russian campaign to undermine the election and a declassified intel report is pointing the finger directly at russian president vladimir putin. donald trump said his team will have a response. our team of political experts we'll talk about it. plus, the messy mixes, snow and rain and ice making the southeast. and the mid-atlantic as well.
we'll tell hue is getting it the worse. and president obama challenging republicans, he said if they have a good health care plan, he'll endorse it. >> if you can in fact put a plan together that is demonstrably better than what obamacare is doing, i will -- i will publicly support repealing obamacare and replacing it with your plan.

president-elect donald trump is still reluctant to blame russia for seib attacks on u.s. political parties last year. >> he received a full briefing on the classified version of the intelligence report just yesterday. that report saying with high confidence those orders were ordered droktsly by russian president poout put. let's talk about this with errol louis and thank you both for getting up early to join us. we're going to get to, lynn, from you, what is your reaction to senator dan coats, and his nomination to director of national intelligence? >> oh, it seems that it's an
experienced hand in dealing with intelligence who has come up through senate committees where they have been briefed who strikes me as somebody with his track record who would appreciate the professionalism of the various intelligence services. and what will we'll see is, if he can serve the incoming president in a way that can help him organize and digest the various intelligence report that come to him in a way that could be useful. that's the big thing we don't know yet, is if he finds this intelligence credible. and to make the changes he will be able to make as president to find out how to make his intelligence credible which is a little forward-looking question. i would like to put out there, if -- very soon, january 20th at noon, you got to perhaps think about about, well, if i don't like the quality of intelligence i'm getting. i'm the president i can change it. what do i want to do what do i
tell my new director dan coats to do to get me what i need to make decisions in policy. >> well, errol, there have been reports that the donald trump team they may be considering ways to lilt that position. >> well, that's right. there's talk about reorganization. and, frankly, there -- it's sort of or potentially could pick up on existing discussions within the intelligence community. the agencies themselves have often squabbled. they're not entirely happy about the level of bureaucracy they have. there's always been sort of a reform push even from the intelligence community. that should end up dovetailing with the political choices of the new president. they could end up pulling in the same dreshgsz rather than have ago a kind of hostile standoff that we're seeing in public right now. >> let's talk what has been making news in the last 24 hours. i want to read a portion of dump's statement on the intel report he's briefed on yesterday. he says in response to the
question of what is in his report and how he will respond. he says i will appoint a team to give me a plan within 90 days of taking office. the methods and tools and tactics we use to keep america safe should not be a be a public discussion that will benefit those who seek to do us harm. he still does not say that russia or putin specifically, orchestrated these attacks. will this plan that he's going to set into place in 90 days, do you believe it will include russia? >> well, the plan, if it's a plan to deal with intelligence, of course, it would include russia. obviously, i don't know, no one knows, what the russia factor will be, when you just look at the question of what a president gets in terms of incoming intelligence. you know, this question, i think, for more useful discussion might be broken down, did russia try to influence the
election? yes. if you don't believe it, then perhaps it would be useful to also hear, as the days unfold, what is it that everyone sees that he doesn't? and then get your own people in, if this is what it takes. though i don't know if this will ever be resolved, based on what we've seen in the pattern of new incoming president trump, he might choose to move on. that's what i'm trying to get to the point of what will the policy be? because you will have many voices now. democrats and republicans, intelligence professionals, saying that the -- you know, saying these are findings. and certainly, if anyone ever has access to seeing russian government tv called rttv you can tell for most americans it is a propaganda tool. i saw it for the first time when i was in stockholm.
i thought, whoa. you know, some people who are conspiracy-minded, it's very hard to, you know, discuss certain situations like this. even when you try to break it down against trump. some of this, i must say, it's new territory. we'll see. >> errol, i wanted to ask you about a tweet by a top russian parliamentarian alexi pushkov. all accusations against russia are based on confidence and assumptions. the u.s. were just as confidence of the wmds hussein had. what does it say to you that a russian parliament member, though, is mirroring what a president-elect is asserting? >> you know, it's almost a cliche. but it does sound more proper coming in sort of a russian accent, just how swarmy and dishonest of a propaganda smear
that is. in talking about the wmd question almost a decade behind us at this point, as opposed to dealing with the real issues that we have in front of us, it's nothing but a dodge. this is, by the way, what trying to undermine democracy looks like when you have not just putin, but some of his allies, like we just heard from, who are trying to sort of make it seem as as if all is confusion, all is lost. that democracy can't find its way in a straight line to finding the facts and making intelligence decisions. that's what their goal is. and that's all that he's been saying. so to the extent that donald trump even echoes faintly that stuff, he does himself a real disservice. >> and goes back to saying that all the people that were in office at that time during the bush administration -- >> here again, they're not trying to undermine an
administration, they're trying to undermine the very foundation of our system which does, of course, cross administrations. >> lynn sweet, errol louis, appreciate your insight as always. >> let's list them off. georgia, alabama, north carolina all issued states of emergency due to winter storm watches and warnings for the southeast. it is coming down in some of these places. we have an update for you. on my long-term control medicine. i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment with breo. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo is specifically designed to open up airways to improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid.
once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. learn more about better breathing at mybreo.com.
hunker down for the long haul here because the mid-atlantic and southeast slammed with snow, ice, sleet, rain and we know that today, the heaviest snow is going to be hitting parts of north carolina with raleigh expecting up to a foot of it. >> yeah, cnn's polo sandoval is in raleigh this morning. he's put on the hat now. stay warm, stay safe out, there polo, what are you seeing? >> reporter: i hope the layers will eventually start coming off, victor, because things could potentially clear up around lunchtime. we have seen that rain turn to sleet. that sleet now turn to some snow. so, there is a little debate about whether or not we're going to see that one foot. but i will tell you what is causing problems is the ice. some of the precipitation that we've seen in the last several hours it's likely going to freeze. according to several reports here, we're not going to climb above 30 degrees until possibly tuesday. so that means all of this mess
will likely stick around causing issues for people through the weekend. possibly early next week. what is helping today, this is saturday. it's not a commuting day. we're not seeing a whole lot of people out and about except for a few vehicles. then there have been time to prepare here. folks here on the ground have been advised about this for several days. we visited the grocery store yesterday. we saw people stocking up. many people telling us, victor and christi, unless they have to go out, they don't plan on doing so. this is a weekend, that live give authorities a head up. and the snowplows and drivers that could end up stranded. guys. >> polo, thanks so much. president obama to the gop, repealing obamacare with no plan in place is quote, simply put, irresponsible. his words -- we'll talk about it, ahead. ok. they're delicious side dishes with
the protein of beans, whole grains... ...and veggies! mmm, good. my work here is dooooone! bird's eye protein blends. so veggie good. everything your family touches sticks with them. make sure the germs they bring home don't stick around. use clorox disinfecting products. because no one kills germs better than clorox.
when you hit 300,000 miles. or here, when you walked away without a scratch. maybe it was all the times it got you safely out there. or all the times it got you out of there. maybe it was the day your baby came home. or maybe the day you realized your baby was not a baby anymore. every subaru is built to earn your trust. because we know what you're trusting us with. subaru. kelley blue book's most trusted brand. and best overall brand. love. it's what makes a subaru, a subaru.
welcome back. so grateful for your company as always, i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. 28 minutes after the hour now. the fbi is trying to figure out why esteban santiago may have shot five people at the ft. lauderdale airport. more information could come from a press conference we know is set to start in about 2 1/2 hours. a few months ago, santiago told fbi officers he was hearing voices in his head, telling him to fight for isis. that triggered a mental investigation. now investigators have not ruled out terrorism here. but before the shooting santiago
only had minor offenses on a criminal record. now he's being held without bond on a murder charge and set to make an appearance in court on monday. again, we'll bring you that update at 10:00 a.m. when hopefully we'll learn more. russia is firing back at the obama administration for blaming them for undermining the election. a top russian official tweeted the democratic process in the united states is undermined not by russia but by the obama administration and the media which supported clinton against trump. still reluctant to accept that russia was behind the cyber attacks despite ban intel briefing and conclusions pointing definitively at the kremlin and vladimir putin. gross negligencely the democratic national committee allowed hacking to take place. the republic cath national committee had strong defense. that tweet from the president-elect. >> we're going to discuss that in a moment. but first, president barack obama challenging republicans to reveal their plans to replace
the affordable care act. he said if a new plan works, if it's cheaper, he's all for it. >> i am saying to every republican right now, if you, in fact, can put a plan together that is demonstrably better than what obamacare is doing, i will -- i will publicly support repealing obamacare and replacing it with your plan. but i want to see it first. i want to see it first. [ applause ] >> he goes on to say that if donald trump does repeal obamacare without a replacement that's ready, there are so many people that will be left out in the cold. cnn's miguel marquez spoke to members of a coal mining community in kentucky who would be directly affected if that happens. >> reporter: the coal-laden hills of eastern kentucky -- >> we're going to bring the coal industry back. >> reporter: -- trump country. neal, a democrat and coal miner
for 35 years initially supported hillary clinton but -- >> i voted for trump. maybe a mistake. but i heard him say he'll bring coal back. >> reporter: a mistake maybe because yunts now suffers from black lung disease. >> from here throw. >> reporter: he voted for trump to bring jobs back now fears trump's promise to kill obamacare will also end his black lung benefits. >> if they're going to eliminate obamacare, they may eliminate all the black lung care. it may all be done. >> reporter: three sentences in the affordable care act made it easier for victims of black lung to get monthly benefits if they worked 15 years or more in the mines. and if they died, the benefits automatically extended to their widows. >> i will be drawing $643. and i think 42 cents. >> once a month?
>> once the month. >> reporter: patty amburgy got got her first payment. her husband died in 2007. >> he was there 45 years. i went from a strong man to a child is pretty hard. >> reporter: getting the payment can also be difficult. even with the law it took her three years. now her black lung widow benefit along with social security and a tiny $62 a month pension keeps her financially afloat. so, this money is important to you? >> absolutely. absolutely. >> reporter: keeping up with the bills here for many a lifetime struggle. so trump's full-throated promise of jobs was a powerful message. the unemployment rate in webster county 10.3%. more than twice the national
average. >> this area has seen a terrific decline in the number of coal mining jobs in the last five years. and those jobs tended to be high-paying job. >> reporter: steven sanders represents miners applying for black lung benefits. as jobs have evaporated, he says, obamacare benefits more important than ever. >> president-elect trump promised people that he was going to restore mining jobs. i don't think he thought about what the affordable care act might mean to miners who are aplaying for black lung benefits. >> reporter: linda adams' husband tony died three years ago. she's now applying for black lung widow benefits. you supported donald trump is this election? >> i did. i did. >> reporter: if obamacare goes away. >> -- if obamacare care goes
away -- >> reporter: her enormous expectations now squarely on president trump. >> if he don't come across like he promised he's not going to be there. not if i can help it. >> reporter: trump's future opposition already taking shape if jobs don't return and obamacare benefits vanish. miguel marquez, cnn, whitesburg, kentucky. >> let's bring in angela rye, senior political commentator, and betsy mccoy. lieutenant governor, i want to start with you. just to piggyback off of miguel's report there. what we heard from speaker paul ryan about what will happen post repeal obamacare. >> we have a plan to replace it. we have plenty of ideas to replace it. and you'll see, as the weeks and months unfold what we're talking about replacing it.
>> there's a major difference between plenty of ideas and a plan. how, after six years of clamoring for repeal and replace does the gop notvy a consensus of what to replace it with? >> first there is a consensus -- >> where's the plan? >> let me just finish. that's a hostile question. >> how is it hostile? >> yes. of the fact is, there is a plan. there are several variations of it, they're combining it right now. all of the plans preserve the medicaid safety net. all of the plans offer people in the private individual market, more choice and much lower premiums. and all of the plans protect people with preexisting conditions. there are currently 500,000 people in obamacare plans who have preexisting conditions, and they are worse off than they are before. almost all of them had insurance before obamacare.
>> okay. >> just a moment. insurance from high-risk pools. but under obamacare they no longer have access to cancer hospitals in most states. or the special care they need. and they are clamoring to be able to get the care they need. >> so the question was how is they're not a consensus and your answer -- >> there is a consensus -- >> well, the answer. let me come with the next question. your answer then was, all of the plans, but by definition, consensus doesn't make room for a myriad of plans. there's a single idea. >> it does. it is. there are -- they're dithering, and -- >> who's dithering? >> the members of congress -- let me just explain -- are drafting a consolidated proposal that will combine the variations, and, for example, how the subsidies and tax credits will be provided. but the basics. medicaid safety net. lower premiums and much more
choice. and better protections for preexisting conditions, all of those things are common in all of the plans. don't forget, obamacare was passed before anybody read it. and we've been suffering for six years as a result. >> angela, i'm going to let you respond to that. and i've got a question about something the president said. >> okay, sure. let me just say this, there's another popular provision of obamacare, victor, and that is to allow young people to stay on their parents' health care plan. that is one that is personal to me. i was a student who was out of nowhere kicked off of my mom and my dad's health care plan. and had to get something called cobra. like what is that? all of a sudden it was much more expensive health care for less benefits. betsy, you talked for a hundred years, let me just, please, the thing that is so important here. is that we don't play politics with health care of american citizens. you just had this great segment on right before we got started.
here's the harsh reality. republicans play politics with this for not the first term of president obama, but also the second term. they tried to repeal obamacare care more than 60 times. there was never a repeal plan. victor, to your point, you would hope they would have a replacement plan. >> you know -- >> i'm not finished. speaker ryan said you're going to see it in the coming days. i've never heard him stutle so bad. the reality is this, barack obama is putting his pride aside, putting his namesake aside and saying listen, i will support whatever you produce if it is better. if is stronger. we have an only zbags agency a citizen of this country to do just that. >> angela, let me -- >> betsy -- >> angela, let me ask you, you said we should not be playing politics with americans' health care. but what we know from that
closed-door meeting that president obama says do not rescue the republicans on replacements. do not rescue them. is he not doing that post-repeal? we know this will be repealed. republicans say that but in offering a way to rescue americans who need health care, should not democrats are part of that? >> yes. but i think his comments were lifted out of context. i think when he's talking about rescuing them, he's saying don't give them any breathing room on the obligations that we have as public servantses to provide health dare to american people. it is not a privilege. it is a right to live, thrive in his country and to be healthy. i think that was the real point. i don't think it was about hanging out to dry and making people suffer. i don't think that's ma he meant at all. >> we've got to take a quick break. both of us are coming back. stay with us. we'll continue the conversation in a moment. that'd be devastating. i took warfarin for over 15 years. until i learned more about once-daily xarelto®...
a latest-generation blood thinner. then i made the switch. xarelto® significantly lowers the risk of stroke in people with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. it has similar effectiveness to warfarin. warfarin interferes with vitamin k and at least six blood-clotting factors. xarelto® is selective. targeting one critical factor of your body's natural clotting function. for people with afib currently well-managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle-related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding.
russia was behind the hacks. let's bring back angela rye and former lieutenant governor better. let's go back to you lieutenant governor, describing what will happen and moving forward. let's listen. >> it was as the president-elect said a respect tiff dialogue. the president-elect has made it clear that we're glowing to take aggressive action in the early days of our new administration to combat cyber attacks and protect the security of the american people from this type of intrusion. in the future. >> aggressive action to combat cyberhacks and attacks in the future. you can reconcile that for us, with what we heard from the president-elect when he said announcing this intelligence briefing that it's time for the country to move on to bigger and
better things? it seems to be an inconsistency there. >> i don't see the inconsistency, victor. this is why, the obama ad administration knew about the hacking of the dnc several months ago, way before the outcome of the election but only made it a big deal once mrs. clinton lost that election. president-elect donald trump has said very clearly that he takes cyber security, not only when it's a hacking of a political institution, but of course, for an electrical grid or other aspectses of american life, even more seriously. but there's a difference between doing that and somehow falling into the trap of thinking that this election was manipulated or changed by the russians. the fact is, the russians did not intrude into the political mechanics of the election. they only changed public opinion, perhaps, by reveal something of the dirty tricks at the dnc. and the fact is, that if every
election, from 1796 on, foreign governments have watched the outcomes. and in many cases leaked information about one candidate or another. the american people had a right to know what was going on behind closed doors at the dnc. hillary clinton getting the debate questions ahead of time. john podesta's very negative use of -- >> we have a limited amount of time. i want angela to respond what you just said. >> victor. the thing that old folks tell you sometimes is don't throw stones while living in a glass house. so russia had access to the rnc despite donald trump's tweet and what you heard from betsy but they didn't share that information. we don't want to talk about dirty secrets because god only know what is the rnc has. but what we do know that russians interfered with this election. we do know that russians undermined our democracy.
we do know that -- >> no. >> it absolutely hurts, but it's real. >> it's not true. >> betsy you love -- anyway, vladimir putin specifically ordered this type of attack to undermine hillary clinton. this was to do everything he could to discredit her. we have to be honest about what the facts say. we have to be honest about what the national intelligence agencies in this country say. and it's very clear. it sounds like mike pence has a different type of agenda, one that puts our democracy over politics. so it will be interesting to see as you brought up initially how they reconcile that. >> angela rye, lieutenant governor betsy mcgaugy, thank you both. dylann roof in his own words. offer nothing remorse in killing nine church members. we have legal analysis. what is going to happen? we'll talk about it when we come back. plus, voice-activated cars
and intelligence robots. we'll show you the technology of tomorrow as thousands of tech companies flood las vegas for ces 2017. healthy, free, the world before me, the long brown path before me leading wherever i choose. the east and the west are mine. the north and the south are mine. all seems beautiful to me.
a jail house diary of con vick tetd charleston shooter dylann roof was read to jurors in the case. in it, the shooter offered no apology or explanation for the massacre that killed nine church members. in fact, he doubled down on his actions saying, quote, i would like to make it crystal clear, i do not regret what i did, i am not sorry, i have not shed a tear for the innocent people i killed. prosecutors plan to wrap up the case next monday. jurors could begin to deliberate tuesday, as to whether roof gets the death penalty or life in prison, want to bring in legal analyst and criminal defense attorney. good to see you. thank you for being here. i want your reaction to what he wrote in the diary, what he said when he is saying i have no regret, i shed no tears. is that the mind of an evil person or is that the mind of a
mentally disabled person or incapable in some way? >> this is an evil person. there are evil people in the world, this is one example of that. we've already deaded the issue of whether or not he has a psychological condition. the judge had two hearings to make sure he was psychologically fit to proceed as his own counsel and the judge found he was. no, this isn't some sort of mental deficiency that the young man has, and it's interesting that he is saying these things in this manifesto while he was in jail, now he is acting as counsel in the penalty phase and providing zero understanding for the jurors. providing no understanding of the gravity of what he did in taking these nine lives, and he is providing zero mitigating factors for them to consider in giving him leniency by giving him prison time without parole. it is interesting to see what exactly he wants in the
situation. from the looks of it, seems like he is leaning to want the death sen tans than be a martyr. >> that was the next question. i know he hasn't even asked jurors to spare his life. will he get the final word? will he get to address the jurors to appeal for his life if he so chooses? >> i mean, he is acting as counsel. he has the opportunity to present evidence like bringing in people to testify on his behalf, explaining what his home life was growing up. there's just nothing he is given. jurors have nothing to mull over but simply the fact that he killed nine people because they were black. that's all that they have. he's given them nothing to factor. all they have is what the government has presented and they prenltd multiple witnesses that talked about what their life has been like without the nine individuals. that's all they have. it is interesting he filed a motion trying to limit the
number of witnesses the government presents because he is saying that would guarantee a death sentence, but you can understand that you know what, he's going to raise the same issue on appeal. what the judge is trying to do is make sure dylann roof understands his rielghts and waiving and giving up. on appeal, bet your bottom he is going to raise the same issues, he was not given a fair trial, that he didn't have effective assistance of counsel. the judge is trying to preserve record for appeal in the event the issues are raised. we will see what he tries to present. as of now, he is presenting absolutely nothing. >> this is what's so difficult for jurors in this situation because the crime is so horrific. you don't want to give the defendant what he wants, but it is hard to determine what he wants. does he want to die? does he want to live? how do jurors balance their feelings, the facts about it, and how they interpret what he might want?
>> well, as a juror they're supposed to balance the aggravating factors that the government presents and mitigating factors the defendant presents. the defendant at this point prenl spren presented zero. there's no redeemable quality they have at this point to decide whether they should give this young man leniency. i wouldn't be surprised if they hand down a death sentence, they have nothing to counter these aggravating factors. he has given them nothing. he was so calculating. victims were extremely vulnerable. it wouldn't be surprising if they came down with a death sentence. >> always appreciate you being here. thank you. >> thank you. >> victor? one of our tech correspondents scored a date with pepper the robot. this is pepper. i know. that's what i say. what? how did it go.
