tv Early Start with Christine Romans and Dave Briggs CNN July 27, 2017 2:00am-2:57am PDT
>> a horrifying accident at the ohio state fair. people sent flying from 20 feet off of one of the most popular rides. good morning and welcome to "early start," i'm dave briggs. >> i'm christine romans. thursday, july 27th. it is 5:00 a.m. exactly in the east. some apparent infighting at the highest levels of the white house with the president's new communications director seeming to suggest white house chief of staff reince priebus had a hand in leaking his financial disclosures. now anthony scaramucci says he's going to the fbi. this bizarre episode began with a cryptic tweet from scaramucci. here it is -- "in light of the leak of my financial disclosure info. which is a felony, i will be contacting the fbi and justice department. #swamp." look at that. he tagged reince priebus. >> now the reference to priebus is not at all clear. but cnn contributors tweeted this, "in case there's ambiguity in his tweet, i can confirm scaramucci wants the fbi to investigate reince for leaking."
all this coming after a political story that listed millions in earnings and salary from his stake in the company called sky bridge before he left to go to the export/import bank in june. not clear whether politico got the document by leak or public record. in an interview taped before all this happened, scaramucci said this -- >> i know i'm in the cesspool called washington or a swamp called washington. so it will be virtually impossible to get rid of every leak. but i think we can take dramatic steps to get rid of leaks. one of the big problems here that i'm discovering in the comstein is that senior people are doing the leaking, and they're asking junior people to do the leaking. i'm proud to be reporting to the president to seal off the coms team from this sort of nonsense. >> that drew this response from the department of justice. "we have seen an astonishing number of leaks in the classified national security information in the recent months.
we agree with anthony that the staggering number of leaks are undermining the ability of our government to function and to protect this country." >> after all this went down, scaramucci deleted the initial tweet and sent this one -- "wrong! tweet was public notice to leakers that all senior administration officials are helping to end the legal leaks." again, he tagged priebus. we reached out and found that scaramucci does want reince priebus, the chief of staff, to be investigated. >> and our digital politics reporter in the washington bureau. the obsession with leaks, anthony scaramucci yesterday on "new day" said this would be top of mind, getting the leaks under control. what's interesting to me is some of the leaks are coming just because of the out-of-the ordinary nature of business in the west wing, right? i mean, some of the leaks are in response to the climate in the west wing, the climate in
washington. you know what i mean? like what came first? >> there's a lot being painted with a broad brush here. keep in mind, every administration, a lot of capitol hill offices, various entities in washington sort of selectively leak information to reporters that they want to get their message out there. so you know, there's a bit -- that's not necessarily counter to the agenda of the office. it's just a way of getting information out there. there's something behind the back, something designed to harm someone else. then you have folks who believe that some information that may be classified is so important that the public needs to hear it. and so they work with reporters to get the information to the public. so there's a lot of different kind of stuff that happens in washington. and to sort of cast them all in
the same light is a bit challenging and difficult to impact exactly what the white house is upset about here. and like you said in the introduction, we don't even know if what scaramucci's referring to is a leak because financial disclosure forms become public. this could have been a freedom of information act request for all we know. >> right. >> yes, anyone could have access to this very material. the bottom line is the oval office has become a firing squad. a circular firing squad. and anthony scaramucci has not begun to clean that up. let's talk about the mess that the president continues to create via twitter. changing major white house and military policy on twitter, announcing a ban of transgender community in the military. we don't even know if those 4,000 members of the military can continue to serve or if they could be kicked out immediately. sarah huckabee sanders could not answer that question. is this in your opinion a military budgetary decision, or
is it entirely political? >> i mean, it's very hard to say what exactly went into a decision made by the president. certainly it's a -- a nontraditional way of announcing such a major policy change. without some really key questions answered -- >> sure -- >> you know, keep in mind john mccain quickly put a statement -- the chair of the senate armed services committee -- we can't have such a policy announced by twitter. this needs to go through the proper channels. the defense department has been reviewed this issue in-depth when the president seemingly acted alone. while this was happening behind the scenes on capitol hill, there was a government funding debate where there was a dispute over whether to include an amendment that would specifically cover transgender reassignment surgery. there's a bit of sort of wonderment whether the president just decided to take that debate
and end it, but almost in a nuclear way, and go very far and rejackpot transgender people -- reject transgender people in the military altogether. >> we're showing for comparison, the president talks about the costs, the unbearable costs of transgender people in the military. you can see on the left side of the screen, this is the rand corporation numbers. they're estimating we'll go on the high side, $8 million for the cost of hormone and gender transition treatments for the people in the military seeking them. and then by comparison, you see, you know, the president's seven trips to mar-a-lago cost $2 million. about the same as the low end of the estimate. that's just for comparison. when you're talking about the humongous, two million each, wow, it is two million each -- >> per visit. >> to mar-a-lago. if he's worried about costs, there are other ways. that's why it makes this look political, right? >> yeah, certainly. and the other question here is what sort of thinking went into
this thinking before they happened and what went before generals before analyzing this. the other mood music in all of this is, of course, this came as there was increasing questions about his sort of war on attorney general jeff sessions which has the deep risk of alienating his base who very much respect jeff sessions. this is something that may fire up his base. there are questions about what decision making led to this announcement out of the blue. >> and this sends a message around the world. let's talk about look. a big day again. now it's the skinny repeal that is subject to be voted on. and that brings to mind notions of a reality star's margarita brand or latte at starbucks. this is the nation's health care, so it cheapens that a bit. are there the votes for the skinny repeal which gets rids of the individual employer mandate, device tax, and does this go
anywhere to improving the country's health care? >> i think people are probably getting sick of this answer which is we don't know. the reason you keep hearing it is because in remarkable fashion we don't know. this is happening in realtime without a plan of how it will go which is extremely unusual for what we see for votes, especially in the senate where things are controlled and usually the outcome is preordained. this is getting still, you know, finally written with is being dotted and ts being crossed. we're still waiting for information as to what the impact will be. democrats have asked cbo for information. because we don't fully know what's going to be in it, it's difficult to say. and we don't know whether the votes are there. they don't look to be there. again, until the vote is skaft, there's -- is cast, there's incredible suspense in the senate today.
>> suspense is one way to put it. >> dysfunction is another. >> suspense. we'll talk to you in a few minutes. thanks for getting up early with us this thursday. >> see you in a bit. one person killed. several others in critical condition after a horrific accident at the ohio state fair. it's leaving officials and witnesses shaken. >> i heard a girl scream, "help." i look over and seen someone fly out. and then i seen it flat to the ground. voluminous original mascara from l'oreal. in black and now in blue l'oreal's creamy formula builds 5 times the volume the soft-bristle brush separates every lash it's america's #1 mascara for a reason the one and only voluminous original mascara from l'oréal paris

video because of the graphic natur nature. you can see where we stopped the video. what you can't see is one of the cars on the fireball ride spins off. the entire car broke off and slammed to the ground. >> ohio governor john kasich ordering all rides at the fair to be shut down and plans to travel there today. kasich offering his condolences. >> it's kind of hard to imagine that you have family that goes to a state fair and those calls come that there was a terrible accident, a terrible tragedy, and somebody you love was involved. >> after the accident, people rushed in to help. witnesses say cars were thrown 20 feet into the air when it detached. >> the ride, it goes really, really fast and goes in circles and rocks right to left.
i heard a girl scream, "help." i look over and seen something fly out. and then i seen it flat to the ground. >> the whole part broke off. >> two people flew out in the air. i was able to get off the ride. it happened simultaneously. looked to the right, seen the car flying, two people flying out of their seats. it was crazy. >> it just looked like, i don't know, something i never seen before. >> i feel terrible for those people that they've left behind, their families. you know, you come over, you think you're going to have a lot of fun. then you end up with something like this. this is really a shame for those families. >> the fair's chief ride inspector says there were no red flags when the fireball ride was examined before the tragic accident. state officials say the fair will be open this morning with all other activities resuming as scheduled. a huge win for president trump's jobs promise. foxconn, the taiwanese manufacturer, is coming to wisconsin. flanked by governor scott walker
and house speaker paul ryan, the ceo says foxconn will invest $10 million in an lcd panel plant which the president takes credit for. >> to make such an incredible investme investment, chairman gao put his faith and confidence in the future of the american economy. in other words, if i didn't get elected, he definitely would not be spending $10 billion. [ cheers ] >> foxconn employs hundreds of thousands in china assembling products for apple and microsoft. they teased shifting production to the u.s. shortly after trump's inauguration. he promised that with little result. in 2013, foxconn announced a $30 million plant in pennsylvania that still has not been built. this time what's different is generous tax incentives -- the state offering up to $3 billion in incentives to create the 13,000 jobs. that translates to about $230,000 from taxpayers for each job there.
what's interesting about the back story about the foxconn promise is the president had been in kenosha, wisconsin, saw this big empty spot of land, and he said to reince priebus, they should do something there. they should build something there. someone should build something there. when he heard that foxconn was scouting around the country for a place to do manufacturing here, the president said, you know that spot in kenosha? they should go to kenosha. immediately reince priebus, paul ryan, scott walker, the governor, worked hard to attract foxconn there. >> it could have been arguably the best day in the six months for the trump administration if it weren't for twitter. meanwhile, the u.s. and jamaica going to the wire in the gold cup soccer final in california. andy scholes has more in the "bleacher report." what a match. ♪ ♪ i'm... i'm so in love with you. ♪ ♪ whatever you want to do...

u.s. mnt trending on twitter because team usa protecting home soil, winning the sixth gold cup. >> andy scholes has more in this morning's "bleacher report." good morning. good morning, guys. there were nervous moments in this before team usa was able to pull it out. it would be an unlikely hero coming to the rescue. take a look at the highlights. in the 50th minute, 22-year-old jordan morris, seen here, loses track of his man. jamaica's going to score off the corner to tie the game up at one. morris would get redemption. 88th minute. he gets the ball in the minute of the box, and he buries it. and morris just a winner. he won a national title at stanford, a title with seattle. now he can add a gold cup to his resume as the u.s. wins 2-1.
>> no chance of making the next qualifying round -- [ laughter ] for the world cup -- [ cheers ] >> for the first time ever at the world championships, katie ledecky did not bring home the gold in an event. ledecky coming in second in the women's 200-meter freestyle. she lost to italy's fredricka pell greeny, the world recordholder. ledecky, the most dominant female swimmer in the world, had been 12-12 for winning gold over the past three championships. she said afterwards she didn't have her a game in the race. marlins rangers, third base man adrian beltre was warming up nearly behind home plate. so much so that you could see him on the normal broadcast view there. the first base umpire told him, get back on the on-desk circle.
and beltre wanted to have fun and moved the circle to the spot of his liking. that prompted the umpire to throw him out of the game. and beltre and the rangers' manager, jeff banister,. happy. they were probably extra grumpy, too, because they lost the game 22-10. finally, if you were ever fortunate enough to own $150,000 earrings, here's a tip -- don't wear it if you go to the lake. atlanta falcons star julio jones learning the lahard way. he was jet skiing and fell. when he came out of the water, it was gone. he hired a dive team to look for it. they went down as far as 65 feet. the diver said finding that earring is going to be impossible. >> yeah. it's in the belly of a small-mouth bass. >> guys, if you ever feel bad about losing sunglasses or something at the lake, don't feel too bad. they weren't $150,000. >> i always keep my $150,000
diamonds under lock and key. >> yeah. you don't go fishing with them? i wonder what a dive team costs. i mean -- >> i don't know. >> it had to have been a deal, right, where if they found it he would give them $20,000. if it's like $1,000, if you find the earring -- i didn't find it. >> i hope he had a rider. >> if only i had julio jones' problems. >> hope high had a rider on his insurance. the man at the white house bringing mixed messages. does anthony scaramucci want the fbi to investigate the white house chief of staff? how's your cafe au lait? oh, it's actually... sfx: (short balloon squeal) it's ver... sfx: (balloon squeals) ok can we... sfx: (balloon squeals) goodbye! oof, that milk in your coffee was messing with you, wasn't it? try lactaid, it's real milk, without that annoying lactose. good right? yeah. lactaid. the milk that doesn't mess with you.

feet from one of the most popular rides there. three people still in critical condition. welcome back to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm dave briggs. we'll talk about the tweet from the president about major white house policy. "the daily news" calls the president the commander-in-hate. we have more in a minute. some apparent infighting, first, at the highest levels of the white house. the president's new communications director seeming to suggest chief of staff reince priebus had a hand in leaking his financial disclosures. now anthony scaramucci says he's going to the fbi. this bizarre episode began with the cryptic tweet from scaramucci. here it is -- "in light of the leak of my financial disclosure info. which is a felony, i will be contacting the fbi and justice department. #swamp." and he tagged reince priebus. >> now the reference to priebus is not at all clear. but cnn contributors tweeted this, "in case there's ambiguity
in his tweet, i can confirm scaramucci wants the fbi to investigate reince for leaking." that's after a politico story that listed earns in scaramucci's stake in the company called sky bridge. before he left to go to the export/import bank in june. not clear whether politico got the document by leak or public record. freemg freedom of information request. before this happened, scaramucci said this -- >> i know i'm in the cesspool called washington or a swamp called washington. so it will be virtually impossible to get rid of every leak. but i think we can take dramatic steps to get rid of leaks. one of the big problems here that i'm discovering in the comstein is that senior people are doing the leaking, and they're asking junior people to do the leaking. i'm proud to be reporting to the president to seal off the coms team from in nonsense. >> that drew this response from
the department of justice department. "we have seen an astonishing increase in the number of leaks in the classified national security information in the recent months. we agree with anthony that the staggering number of leaks are undermining the ability of our government to function and to protect this country." >> after all this went down, scaramucci deleted the initial tweet and sent this one -- "wrong! tweet was public notice to leakers that all administration officials are helping to end the legal leaks." again, he tagged priebus. we reached out to get reporting. and scaramucci does want priebus investigated by the fbi. >> we have more from our washington bureau. the tweets, the mess, what does it say about the level of paranoia, about the communication problems that still exist even though anthony scaramucci is here to clean up just that? >> yeah. the level of paranoia seems to be strong within the white house. and you know, it seems almost
silly to talk about the way an administration would normally function because i think it's well established that the administration doesn't feel bound by what's considered normal. a communications director director in the white house is often designed to keep the administration out of the news unless they want to be in the news and want to be in the news for policy decisions. that is not how this trump communications department is operating. you see that there scaramucci. he's channeling trump himself. if you feel on defense, go on offense. they're going on attack on this problem of leaks even though it's not entirely clear what they're referring to. certainly there have been some, for example, the private contents of trump's meetings with foreign officials that perhaps it's understandable that they're concerned about that getting out. but there are some that the white house is working on a piece of legislation which often
a com shop intentionally wants out there. so it's a really broad brush, but it's certainly a completely different communications strategy than what we're used to seeing from the white house. >> that aside, less than 24 hours ago, the president sort of stunned i think his military -- >> yeah. no question. >> -- and the media and everyone involved with this announcement that he was going to ban transgender people from serving their country in the united states military. "after consultation with my generals and military experts, please be advised that the united states will not allow transgendered individuals to serve in any capacity." you see it there. he talks about the tremendous medical costs and disruption the transgender people cause in the military, without any evidence, he says that. and this is how his hometown "daily news" plays it. "command "commander-in-hate." sharp response. "cruel betrayal built on lies." dave and i were saying if it hadn't been for the transgender
decision yesterday, i think his luring of foxconn to a new plant in wisconsin might have a top story. >> no question. one of his best days. >> the 5:00 p.m. job announcements might have been the headline. instead it was a series of tweets that seemed to catch his own administration offguard. >> that's absolutely right. let's talk about what was happening behind the scenes before the tweets on. one hand you have the con -- before the tweets. on one hand, you have the constant tweets from the attorney general, popular with his base. that was happening. the president likely wanted to change the subject. also there's debate in the house about how to move forward on a defense spending package that includes money for the president's wall which he wants very much. and cnn has learned that there were conservatives who were debating whether to include an amendment that would have prevented money for transgender
reassignment surgery. that debate was perhaps holding up a little of the bill. it's possible that president trump interpreted that by going full bore and announcing on twitter that transgender individuals would not be allowed to serve in the military. so all these things were happening behind the scenes. you're absolutely right -- this was not a policy decision that came out with a lot of followthrough. it was a series of tweets that sent everyone scrambling and completely usurped the message the white house probably wanted to send that day. >> you think this is american heroes week. these are thousands of people serving their country. >> wow. >> that put their life on the line. it's american heroes week. i've got to move on to jeff sessions, the attorney general. another thing that is not normal and should not be treated as normal. the president continued to attack the country's top law enforcement officer on twitter. several republicans have stepped up to defend jeff sessions. to name a few -- lindsey graham,
orrin hatch, shelby, cornyn, i could go on and on. almost unanimous support for jeff sessions. and those speaking out against the potential appointment, recess appointment, of a potential replacement. what's the end game here for the president? and is there any way he could fire jeff sessions and appoint his replacement before the august recess? >> there's a lot going on there. when you talk about recess appointments, the interesting thing is this is something that came up during the obama administration. it's something that president obama tried to use and actually generated a supreme court case that went not in favor of the former president and found that you can't make a recess appointment unless the senate formally adjourns. so there's already an effort underway to prevent that from happening in august. since that supreme court decision, congress hasn't officially gone on recess. they meet in what are called pro
forma sessions. just to keep the appearance of being open. so a recess appointment, the two to be long -- the too long not to read version, would be difficult to do. you asked about the end game. it's not clear to me that there is an end game. you know, one of our colleagues wrote about how as much as he's known for saying "you're fired," president trump doesn't really like to directly fire people. >> it's true. he's a people pleaser. the people around him, he is a people pleaser personally when he's in a small group. >> he had his bodyguard deliver a letter to the fbi director while the director was in california. >> right. >> just to give you some context on how he fires people. >> quickly, on -- it's great. the gop still searching for a way forward on health care. >> yes. >> they wouldn't do a straight repeal. now what? what is the path forward for them? >> again, we don't know. and you know what, mitch mcconnell doesn't know either. and that's what's remarkable about this.
we're actually seeing in realtime the senate figure it out. so there's going to be proposals put forward today. we're going to see how the votes fall. people may not know how they'll vote until the last minute. it is an incredible spectacle, if we want to talk about the end game, with the spaghetti approach, you throw enough at the wall and see if something sticks. we don't know how the votes are going to fall. >> a seven-year fight to repeal and replace obamacare might be over within 24 hours. >> the thing is -- >> we'll see. >> -- maybe i'm crazy, but for seven years they've been saying they had a better idea. i don't see it yet. it's not here. i mean, maybe they should polish that up a bit. >> perhaps. >> thank you very much. nice to see you. and lowering premiums has been a consistent theme during the health care debate. a skinny repeal of obamacare will do just the opposite. it eliminates a few things that keep costs lower like the employer mandate requiring
companies to provide insurance for all full-time workers or the individual mandate compelling all americans to have health insurance or pay a penalty. the individual mandate has met mixed reviews. but insurers, experts, and advocates, they all stress how important it is to stability because it brings in younger, healthier people into the insurance market. and those people offset the higher costs for those who need more care. without it, the congressional budget office says premiums would rise about 20% over the next decade, leaving 15 million fewer people with health insurance. and rising premiums also cost the federal government. you'll have to pay more in subsidies to help people afford their coverage. >> and what they hope is to get this to a conference committee where somehow the house and senate can come up with an agreement which to trey gaudy's point should be the seventh sign of the apocalypse if that happens, a republican. >> seven years of promising repeal and replace, and they're not clear how they're going to replace. seven years of promises. >> big day in the capitol. ahead, one person killed.
