being overly involved. welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm john berman. it is tuesday, january 17th. 4:00 a.m. in the east. new trouble for the nominee. a cnn report has democrats calling for an ethics investigation of congress member tom price. the president-elect pick for health and human services. did he use influence for personal profit. price bought as much as $15,000 of a stock in a hip and knee implantmaker. days later, he introduced legislation that would benefitted the company. the hip act would have delayed the change in medicare and medicaid reimbursements to hurt the company and not long after price fired the bill, the political action committee for the company donated $1,000 to price's re-election fund. follow the bouncing ball.
1:02 am
after keeping silent, a price aide said the stock was purchased without the congress member's knowledge. any effort to connect the introduction of the legislation co- sponsored to the democrats with the campaign contribution is false. dr. price is fully complying with the recommendations of the ethics office. all this has senate democratic leader chuck schumer with a call for a review of price. this is not just a couple of questionable trades, but a pattern of congress member price trading stock and using the office to benefit the companies in which he is investing. the previous trades cast down on whether price is fit for the office. price promised to divest from his companies.
1:03 am
price would be a key player in repeal and replace obamacare. mr. donald trump will unveil the act after price is koconfirmed. time is running out to complete the review process. 14 cabinet picks must sit for senate hearings and five have finalize the required paper work. our jeff zeleny previews the senate this week and what to expect. >> reporter: john and christine, three days to go before donald trump takes office and another round of confirmation hearing on capitol hill. betsy devos is up for hearings today. both of these nominees are expected to be confirmed, but there are questions about some of the policies. one thing that some republicans are concerned about.

it took seven months, but federal prosecutors believe they have enough evidence to charge the wife of omar mateen. the gunman who killed 49 people at the pulse nightclub in orlando. police arrested noor salman at her home in san francisco. >> no doubt in my mind based on the information that i knew and received from the fbi for the past seven months that she knew and aided and she could have prevented the tragedy. >> she is expected to make an appearance in federal court later this morning. we get the latest from pamela brown. >> reporter: good morning. we learned investigators pressed charges after the seven-month investigation. obstruction of justice and aiding and abetting her husband based on what noor salman told investigators and her story not standing up to the facts.
1:17 am
we learned she told investigators that her husband, omar mateen, the man responsible for the rampage at pulse nightclub was abusive to her and times feared for her life. officials say she was complicit in other actions based on free will. officials tell us she accompanied mateen to targets in the weeks before the attacks. she went with him to buy the guns. she told investigators that she did not know of her husband's plans. officials tell us mateen put documents, including his life insurance policy in her name before the attack and bought her expensive jewelry before the shooting. the night before the shooting, she saw him leave the house upset with guns in his bag, but did not call authorities. during the three-hour massacre, the two allegedly exchanged text messages and she called her husband. salman's attorneys released a statement saying noor salman had

1:23 am
deliver a final shot at the obama administration. sergei lavrov seemed to suggest that the trump administration should bring up more pragmatic approaches to problem solving. let's bring in jill dougherty with more on this. jill, what did lavrov say? >> reporter: what he did say, i think, one of the most interesting things was they are not really counting on exactly what donald trump will do. in fact, he said the foreign policy of trump is very different from republicans or democrats previously. it is as he put it, the world as donald trump sees it. that said, what the russian foreign minister is saying, let's forget about values. values are the fig leaf for regime change. let's be pragmatic. i think this is the approach they will take which is saying
1:24 am
donald trump, you are a businessman. let's forget about all this value stuff and let's work together concretely on certain issues. one of those would be terrorism. then also specifically remember we were reporting that mr. trump proposed a deal if the u.s. gave up sanctions and the russians could have some type of agreement on reducing nuclear arms. minister lavrov said i don't see it. then that said after dismissing that, he did say but for both of us a priority is strategic stability and we should work together on that. then one final dig at the obama administration. strategic stability that was destroyed by the obama administration. john. >> carefully chosen words to be sure. jill, thank you. the suspected gunman opened fire in the istanbul nightclub on new year's eve were arrested late monday. now he is speaking to

1:26 am
scouring the country looking for him. they had over 7,000 hours of video surveillance they were going through to try to find him. they arrested 50 people at 150 different raids arresting 50 members of isis according to the turkish authorities. they are glad that not only were they able to stop him, but able to capture him alive. then they will be able to get valuable intelligence after they interrogate him. istanbul, turkey is breathing a sigh of relief today. we are hearing from the nightclub owner who feels this rush of relief going through him. a huge weight has been lifted off his shoulders of not just him, but the victims and families that this man is no longer walking the streets. really the country is relieved that two weeks after this attack they finally got the man.
1:27 am
>> that added level of terror to commit that and slip away into the population. certainly, certainly a relief. thank you, ian lee. with the process of repealing obamacare under way, the man charged with replacing it in danger of a messy confirmation. the cnn investigation that democrats will certainly be asking about. that's coming up. sometimes you just know when you hit a home run. that's how i feel about blue-emu pain relief spray. odorless and fast-acting. it soothes all my muscle aches and pains. and it's convenient for those hard to reach places. and if you're like me, you'll love blue-emu super strength cream. it's made with real emu oil, it's non greasy, it's a deep penetrating formula that works itself down into your joints.

1:31 am
democrats skipping inauguration is climbing. how high will it go? will the president-elect reach out to stop it? welcome back to "early start." i'm john berman. >> i'm christine romans. nice to see you this morning on inauguration week. trouble for trump nominee this morning. democrats calling for ethics investigation of congress member tom price. the president's pick for health and human services. the question is did he use his influence for personal profit. our review of house records shows price bought as much as $15,000 of a stock in a hip and knee implant maker. company named zimmer bio net. days later, he introduced legislation. the hip act would cause a change in the medicare and medicaid act. not long after price filed that

1:33 am
services. price has promised to divest from 43 companies. as secretary, price would be a key player in the effort to repeal and replace obamacare. he proposed plans four years ago. the president says he will unveil his replacement for obamacare after price is confirmed. that could be the real impact here. perhaps further delaying or complicating that process. >> he is an orthopedic surgeon. he knows the world of the knee implant and hip implant. for many years, there were no restrictions on congress members trading stocks. >> that changed over the last few years. tom price is one of many facing hearings this week. time is running out for them to complete the review process. 14 picks must sit for senate hearings. five have finalized the paper work. our jeff zeleny previews who is on the senate hot seat this

when he went after the immigration policy calling it catastrophic. many people said he was weighing in to their domestic policy. telling another head of state whether to do. now secretary of state john kerry is giving his opinions sdplch. >> i thought frankly it was inappropriate for the president-elect of the united states to step into the politics of other countries in a direct manner. and he'll have to speak to that as of friday. you know, he's responsible for that relationship. >> as for merkel, she will wait until after trump's inauguration to engage with him. cia director john brennan is taking a shot at president-elect donald trump. he is not responsible for leaking details on the president-elect as donald trump suggested on sunday. brennan called the president-elect's comments comparing the u.s. intelligence

1:40 am
bmw is the largest u.s. exportiexporte exporter. it is a great analogy for globalization. german company building cars here. more cars it can sell in the united states. it is expanding in mexico. donald trump says if you build in mexico, i'll tax them. bmw is saying go ahead. >> none of this is easy. breaking overnight. search for flight 370 has been suspended. a statement statement with australia and china and malaysia, said despite the best science, they have been unable to locate the aircraft. mh-370 disarreppeared three yea ago on the way to kuala lumpur. the family support group issued a statement. in our view extending the search area defined by the experts a

from the reina nightclub shooting where that took place. this was a massive operation all over the country. thousands of police officers were involved. they raided 152 different locations. 50 people were also arrested with, they say, alleged isis supporters with links to this man or to this attack. so that noose was tightening around him. two weeks after place, they nabbed him. the owner of the nightclub says this is a relief. a weight off the shoulders of the victims and families and knowing this man is no longer walking free. i think one of the key things here, john, they were able to take him alive. there will be a treasure trove of information, hopefully he can give turkish authorities.
1:47 am
>> following a lot of leads. thank you, ian lee. america lost another space pioneer. gene cernan was died. one of a dozen to walk on the moon. the commander of the apollo 17 mission in 1972. >> i would like to let what i believe history will record that america's challenge of today has forged man's destiny of tomorrow. >> gene cernan was one of three astronaut whos who went to the twice. his passion for space exploration never waned. cernan was 82. it is hard to believe 44 years ago. >> he was a phenomenal pilot. the ultra rich making their way to davos, switzerland. >> i say it like you.

1:49 am
that's how i feel about blue-emu pain relief spray. odorless and fast-acting. it soothes all my muscle aches and pains. and it's convenient for those hard to reach places. and if you're like me, you'll love blue-emu super strength cream. it's made with real emu oil, it's non greasy, it's a deep penetrating formula that works itself down into your joints. take it from me. it works fast and you won't stink. blue-emu, it works for me it'll work for you.
1:50 am
1:51 am
breaking overnight. a final parting shot at the obama administration. sergei lavrov seemed to ask that the trump administration take a more pragmatic approach to problem solvinsolving. let's bring in jill dougherty in moscow. jill, lavrov seemed to have lots to say. >> reporter: lots of digs on the obama administration which russia believes ruined the world. broke the pots and they are
1:52 am
ready to work with the trump administration. they did say, however, minister lavrov is not sure exactly what donald trump will do. in fact, minister lavrov referred to the world as trump sees it. that said, what they do want to do is have a more pragmatic relationship. in essence, what this foreign minister was saying is let's do a deal. let's be pragmatic. let's forget about the values which he would argue led to revolution and fighting on the streets. ukraine, arab spring, et cetera. let's work together. we want to work on fighting terrorism. he got back to the issue just that we heard yesterday on donald trump supposedly saying that if russia were to give -- that the u.s. could give up sanctions if russia were to work toward a nuclear deal. the minister said i don't see
1:53 am
that linkage, but that said, if we can work on strategic stability, that would be very good for russia. he argues it is the obama administration that destroyed strategic stability. john. >> jill dougherty. thank you. the tiny mountain town in switzerland where there's a huge meeting of minds. the world economic forum. it happens every year in davos. you see the ultra rich rubbing elbows with the financiers. this year is different. richard quest is there for us as he is every year in davos. he is the head of "quest news business." he wrote the article on cnn money. you say the global leaders need to get real or close up shop. there is a global revolt of the working class against globalization and the people where you are have been
1:54 am
proponents of globalization for the past 20 years. you say they have to change their thinking. >> reporter: it is as if they have been told that the world is flat after all. because christine, for the last 30 or 40 years, the western consensus has been that globalization is good. and the more globalization, the more export of western capital, the more values of large corporations that would be to the benefit. what trump's victory and not to forget brexit and the italian referendum on constitutional reform, that is an awakening. the reality is they are not sure first of all what it means and they are certainly not sure what they can do about it. it is challenging the very core of their beliefs. >> richard quest, one of the few
1:55 am
things probably not in abundance at davos is humility. do you get the sense that the high flyers admit they got it wrong or getting it wrong and begun to be introspective about the why? >> reporter: not a bit of it. there are 400 panels and there is not one panel -- not one -- with the title how we got it wrong or why we were so out of touch. lots of panels about restoring the middle class. making global economy work. the future of wealth. all those sort of things. i'll show you a graph. a chart. as trump prepare s to take office, we are asking everybody with brexit and trump, what do they make on the scale of uncertainty. how uncertain is the world at the moment. look where they all are. they are all over here. the level of uncertainty.
1:56 am
the global economy heading toward ten. these are the issues. trump, brexit, trade, protectionism. if you want to join our char chart, @richardquest. the reality is, they are not sailing on majestically irrelevant to what is happening, but they are having a fundamental introspection of what they need to do. >> richard, they always knew there could be big globalization. benefits to consumers to buy cheaper goods in the united states. low wage workers in developing mark markets, but mostly be to shareholders and investors. i argue they knew that and they just never followed through on
1:57 am
the kinds of reforms to match skills and labor to do education and things you need to do to lift everybody up. >> reporter: absolutely. when the head said you talk about you talk about people against globalization. what about the hundreds of millions of people in india and africa and southeast asia that are being lifted out of poverty as a result of globalization. that is a powerful argument in favor of globalization. unfortunately, they are not the people that actually voted for donald trump or for the britain to leave the eu. >> and some cases globalization hurt those people to when you look at labor standards. in bangladesh, the factory that collapsed that killed the young women making cheap goods for american consumers.
1:58 am
i mean, there have been rough edges of globalization. that is the theme of the elections. >> reporter: one other point. last night i was talking to phillip jennings. on the question of american jobs, he basically says donald trump has fooled those american workers who believe firstly the jobs are coming back. secondly, they will be well paid jobs with benefits and thirdly, he has fooled them into believing that the u.s. economy can be recreated in a model of 4% growth. he is of the opinion, the global trade unionists here that trump has performed a con on the american voter. i put it to him, that's way too soon to say. he says wait and see. it will be proven to be true. >> inauguration in three he days. not more time to wait.
1:59 am
richard, xi jinping due in davos. what are we expecting from him? >> reporter: fascinating. as america appears to be disengaging from the world so that the chinese have roared in. that is how jinping's visit is seen. how he will capitalize not on globalization, but perceived withdrawal of the united states of global leadership. the president-elect made it clear that the u.s. does not want to be the global policeman. guess what? china is wait in the wings on trade and on jobs and on investment and on exports. china waiting in the wings and will start today. today is the first time you will hear china say we are ready to move in. >> i'm told they have a big delegation. it will be interesting. richard quest. >> reporter: huge. >> thank you, richard quest. >> reporter: huge. >> thank you, richard. >> no, no, no.
2:00 am
