tv   CNN Newsroom With John Berman and Poppy Harlow  CNN  October 6, 2017 6:00am-7:00am PDT

6:00 am
john berman here. breaking news this morning, preparing for a direct hit. what looks to be a hurricane to hit smack in the middle of the gulf coast. this is not harvey or maria or irma, but no, this is nate. louisiana, mississippi, alabama, all under hurricane watches this morning. nate already claimed the lives of 20 people in central america bringing torrential rain, flash floods and mudslides and it could strengthen as it moves over the gulf. cnn meteorologist, chad meyers, tracking the storm in the weather center. here we go again. >> i know. landfall from the national hurricane center, tomorrow night, john, somewhere around 80 miles per hour. that's plus or minus 20%. you can't take your eye off the ball. this could be a category 2 hurricane.
6:01 am
the wind keeps blowing it and it's moving quickly, and that's considered shear. that should not allow it to get too much stronger than a category 1. we will see. biloxi, st. louis and all the way to new orleans, that's right in the cone, all of this right in the cone right now. hurricane hunters are in the storm right now flying around, and those are the two airplanes flying around, and 997 for millibars. this is not harvey or irma or maria, but as it gets over the gulf of mexico it could certainly strengthen. the u.s. and the european model over the same place. it's important to note the storm turns to the right quickly after or close to landfall. you could see some storm surge from this.
6:02 am
there could be three to five feet of surge. that's not the surge we saw from katrina which was somewhere in the ballpark of 22 feet, but enough surge to get into the land areas where people live. don't look at this as a category 1 hurricane, this is a land falling storm that will have surge and wind damage. the wind gets all the way into mississippi and alabama, and bringing down power lines in georgia with the wind because we are still at 40 to 50 miles per hour right over atlanta, and that's never a good thing in a big city with a lot of old trees, power lines come down and the surge here from morgan city almost over to mobile that could be three to five feet or higher in the storm gets stronger. right now three to five is the number. >> the key is this thing will make a direct hit, and it's coming fast so not much time to prepare. appreciate it. more breaking news. a headline in the u.s. economy
6:03 am
that sticks out like a sore thumb. the economy lost 33,000 jobs in the month of september. 33,000 jobs. much worse than predicted. the first decline in seven years, but there's a reason. cnn's chief money correspondent. >> two reasons, harvey and irma. this is a hurricane report. no question. we knew the hurricanes would cause a lot of problems in the numbers, and it's true. 11 million people with jobs lived in counties that were declared a disaster. all of those really a big impact. 33,000 net job loss. it's the first time we have seen private sector job loss overall in years, breaking an impressive streak. you can see the pain for paycheck to paycheck workers in florida and texas.
6:04 am
105 bar and restaurant jobs lost. bars and restaurants took the brunt of it, though. health care continuing to be the bright spot. but, john, let's look at the unemployment rate. this is important. 4.2%. again, the lowest since early 2001. this is a really remarkable number. we looked into this. what happened here? 575,000 people enter the labor market. >> that's good. >> most of them got jobs. >> that's great. >> that pushed down the unemployment rate. this is a tail of two labor markets. one was hurt by hurricanes, and the other is still doing well here. i will take a look at the overall job creation this year, slightly slower than last year, but have to wait for next year. wages, 2.9% wage growth. in the coming months you will see job creation pick up in florida and texas, and high-skilled construction jobs, and they will need those and
6:05 am
they pay better. new this morning we are learning the man that murdered 58 people in las vegas wanted to see what he was shooting at. this is a new piece of information about his movements and actions in his weeks before the massacre. the gunman tried but failed to buy tracer ammunition at a gun show in phoenix. as to a possible motive, new information that falls somewhere between odd and mystifying. "the new york times" says there was a note left behind. this was not a suicide note or manifesto, but a list of numbers. those numbers are now being analyzed. all 58 murder victims have been identified and are remembered by these new markers on the las vegas strip, hand made by a man in illinois and delivered yesterday. cnn's jean casarez has the latest for us on the investigation. jean. >> reporter: law enforcement
6:06 am
sources are telling us in recent weeks paddock did go to phoenix to a gun show and wanted to buy tracer bullets that allow you to identify your target. he was not able to purchase them. he did purchase a lot of other ammunition, however. our law enforcement analyst explains to us, our tracer bullet, especially under the cover of darkness would provide the accuracy. since he did not have it, he would be spraying into the darkness not knowing where he was going at all and the accuracy would not be there. we know two rounds hit a 43,000 gallon jet fuel tank that was 1,100 feet from where the concert venue was. it did damage the fuel tank and we obviously don't know if he was aiming toward that or if it just happened to spray with all of the other bullets. law enforcement is not at all publicly saying what they
6:07 am
believe the motive of all this was, why he did what he did. at a recent press conference, though, there was a question about a note, a piece of paper that was found in the room. the chief said, you know, it was not a suicide note and it was not much to do with it. well, we found out "the new york times" is reporting there were numbers on the piece of paper, and law enforcement analyst are trying to discern what the numbers mean at all, if anything. john? >> thank you so much for your reporting. we have one other piece of information, and a reporter spoke with the gunman's bar tkpwbarber. she was told two months before the attack the shooter's girlfriend was going to the philippines. >> the last time i saw him was probably only two months ago. it was about two months ago.
6:08 am
he came in and he got his hair cut, and he, again, smelled of alcohol. his girlfriend was with him. again, just kind of doing her thing. he sat down and was telling me about her leaving to go to the philippines, and he was going to be home alone and hanging out for a while hanging out by himself. you know, it wasn't -- it wasn't anything weird or anything that seemed off. >> joining us now is a law enforcement consultant and former new york city police detective. we have a barber suggesting the girlfriend knew she was heading to the philippines three months before, and we are hearing it was two weeks. >> it's troubling. this guy is a bit of an outlier to begin with.
6:09 am
he does not fit the general profile of what we have seen in regards to the mass shootings we have had in the past, right? he has a law enforcement problem, and no criminal record. he was a bit of a social recluse. didn't talk to a lot of people. there were not many people aware, really, not anybody aware at this point of issues that he had or anything that made him snap. also something to make him send his philippines -- >> we have been told she was sent there in the weeks before, and she had an idea she was going there two months before. it's those inconsistencies law enforcement will take a look at. it will perhaps lead them on other avenues to investigate. >> there has been speculation as to whether or not she knew anything about this. anything is possible. is it possible she didn't know anything about this or some sort of clue that something was going
6:10 am
off the rails with him in the last year or so and he amassed 30 weapons in 11 months? there's something. there's little pieces of the puzzle she will be able to fill in. her being able to come forth with the information, that's her choice. it would help with investigators trying to piece this together. >> great to have you with us. the other bit of information cnn reporting overnight, the killer tried to buy tracer bullets. it was weeks before the shooting. you know he had been planning this for weeks, and at this point that seems obvious. the second point is why do you buy tracers? you buy tracers so you can see if you are hitting what you are shooting at right now, which tells you something about his mind-set? >> yeah, as we know we look at the weapons he bought. i am not surprised. we kind of talked about it when we were out in vegas about how come he didn't have tracer rounds. tracer rounds, i believe, are
6:11 am
legal in nevada. arizona, they are restricted. you have to register. you have to pay a lot of money because they are classified as a dangerous munitions. they are for military use. i familiarize myself with them. law enforcement doesn't use them here. usually every fifth round in a machine gun, and sometimes you put them in the bottom of a magazine so you know when you are running out of ammo. >> one idea would be you do want them or need them if you want to target something specific. we don't know if that's the case. >> i think that's why he was trying to buy them. it allows you to keep your weapon on a specific area, and that would have helped him out in this case and there would be
6:12 am
a higher casualty count. >> the numbers he left behind are being analyzed right now. the public, all of us, keep wondering is there a motive? how much do you think authorities know they are not telling us? >> i think they know a lot. i think they have an idea of what the motive is here. that's interesting. these numbers, there are they a code? he's an accountant and very organized and smart individual. are those references to a code or something he left behind to have law enforcement go down a rabbit hole instead of the real investigation. >> the important thing is 58 people are dead. is the answer that you want to find out what was behind this to make sure, a, there's nobody else connected to it, and also to learn what to look out for
6:13 am
going forward? >> yeah, well, and not only that, but also you would like closure for families and victims of this horrific incident. we want to make sure this guy -- i hate to use the term lone wolf, and he did it on his own without any kind of terrorism of any kind and the buck stops here, and maybe some of the information he leaves might be able to help us in expanding a profile of what a maniac like this will be doing next time. >> yeah, want to help the future. thank you for joining us. appreciate it. an interesting and maybe ominous message from the president. listen to this. >> you guys no what this represents? maybe it's the calm before the storm? >> what storm you might ask? why did he say it while

6:15 am
how much money do you think you'll need in retirement? then we found out how many years that money would last them. how long do you think we'll keep -- oooooohhh! you stopped! you're gonna leave me back here at year 9? how did this happen? it turned out, a lot of people fell short, of even the average length of retirement. we have to think about not when we expect to live to, but when we could live to. let's plan for income that lasts all our years in retirement. prudential. bring your challenges. i've always had that issue with the seeds getting under my denture. super poligrip free. it creates a seal of the dentures in my mouth. just a few dabs is clinically proven

6:18 am
new this morning, even the president of the united states just foreshadowed a great global conflict or grouped a bunch of sounds and syllables together that mean absolutely nothing. you choose which is better for america. listen to what the president said while surrounded by the military leaders, whose job it is to keep you safe and keep you
6:19 am
out of harm's way all over the world. >> do you know what this represents? maybe it's the calm before the storm. >> what is the storm? >> you'll find out. >> so is the united states about to face some serious military conflict? did the president just say that's in our next episode? cnn's joe johns at the white house. it's 9:18. any sign of a storm yet? >> what the president meant by that is anybody's guess. it's clear he was meeting with the military leaders. the white house put a readout of the president's meeting with the military leaders and it doesn't shed that much light on what we already knew. we know the president talked about north korea and the threat there. we know the president talked
6:20 am
about where three green berets were killed, and they talked about isis and iran. the president has been talking about decertifying iran's nuclear agreement, and cnn was told he plans to do that as early as next week because he doesn't think the plan goes far enough. it was signed during the obama administration. the president issued a bit of a rebuke for his military leaders, in his view they need to get him military options quicker when he asks for them. >> moving forward i also expect you to provide me a broad range of military options when needed at a much faster place. i know government bureaucracy is slow but i am depending on you to overcome the obstacles of
6:21 am
bureaucracy. >> what storm was the president talking about? well, they did talk about actual storms. the military response to the hurricanes that have occurred here in the united states over the past few weeks. maybe that's the storm they were talking about, john? >> hmm. thank you. joining me now, barbara starr, molly balls, cnn political analyst. barbara starr you are better sourced at the pentagon than anybody i know, and are your sources aware of any imminent storm that might face those military leaders gathered around the president last night? >> well, yes, there are a number of things the u.s. could face at any minute. think about north korea, right? that could blow up, and i am speaking figuratively. you have the situation in west africa where green berets have
6:22 am
just been killed. you have thousands of troops in harms way around the world, in iraq, syria and afghanistan. but that is the business that these commanders around the table you are showing are very calm about and capable of dealing with. these are commanders, men and women who are not particularly inclined to drama, to high-drama statements like the one the president made in front of tv cameras. they are very calm and methodical. many of them have been in combat before and under fire and commanded troops in combat, and work on military options around the clock every day. let me just mention two guys around that table, head of u.s. central command and he made two parachute jumps in combat under fire, and you will never get him
6:23 am
to talk about it. tony thomas will talk about his experiences, and they are not very inclined to drama. >> molly, one interpretation of this, and we have seen it beginning in the campaign and all the way through the presidency, is president trump is a guy that says stuff, period. full stop. what do you make of it? >> that's been my analysis based on covk covering him. it's so interesting barbara describing the military temperament, and that's opposite of the president's personality. he loves to create drama. he's always thinking of new ways to put people off balance and get under peoples' skin. it's possible he is thinking
6:24 am
about the affect of a statement like this and how it will get people spun up and tuned in for the next episode. it's possible he has something on his mind he has not told the military about. we have seen him spring things on the pentagon. it's possible there's something on the president's mind that nobody else knows about and we will find out when we find out. >> yeah, in the next episode. i don't mean to make light of it when we are dealing with thousands of lives all around the world. general, something else the president said. this did seem deliberate and planned and not off the cuff, when he wanted advice from the military leaders more quickly and not filtered through the bureaucracy, and could it be a rebuke of maybe his own defense secretary, james mattis?
6:25 am
>> the one thing the military does exceptionally well, among the many tasks it has been asked to perform and it performs routinely, and the military plans very well. on the shelf today there are multiple different plans for regions of the world and multiple scenarios and contingencies against which the military has to be prepared. that includes all elements of powers. it includes diplomatic efforts as well. to go to the military and say i need plans more quickly, essentially what he's saying is i want you to polish it and bring it to me, and that's what the military does. i am not certain i fully understand what is under the president's skin in terms of not having a dod. that's what the military does, reach out over the horizon in anticipation of what is coming up, and they allocate and come
6:26 am
forward with an array of options. that's what the military does and is prepared to do, so that's why i am baffled by his criticism of the dod. >> maybe he's talking about t iran. he will say iran is not carrying out its end of the bargain anymore. general, first to you on this, the international observers, most u.s. officials say technically speaking the nuclear part of the deal, which is the deal, iran is complying. >> correct. a decertification is a bad idea. we have international cigna tories to that deal. that allows us to engage with
6:27 am
iran. look what happened when we isolated iran over the course of four decades. now we are working with them and that's a good thing. we have a relationship, and build to see if we can build trust. this gives us an opportunity to do that, and what we want to do is have a diplomatic solution so we don't break more things around the globe. the united states knows how to do that well. >> barbara, it seems over the last few days and weeks, among the people who would like the united states to stay in the deal includes mattis, and mcmasters and tillerson. there's pressure from within on the president not shaking things up too much. >> i think there is. secretary mattis has been making the point if the deal is obeyed, if you will, if everybody obeys
6:28 am
the rules of the road he believes it's good for national security. it goes back to the point just made, you will find around the world it's the u.s. military that is the biggest advocate of diplomatic solutions. they do not look for more military conflict. they want to see diplomatic solutions in iran. they want to see diplomatic solutions in north korea. before anybody starts talking about military options in a serious fashion, just contemplate this. you, right now, have so many military assets tied up, and it's a key point in hurricane relief in puerto rico, the pentagon yesterday said some deployments to afghanistan could get delayed and some deployments to the pacific could be delayed and the delays could be until next year because resources are tied up in puerto rico.
6:29 am
>> one interesting aspect of what the president seems to be, it will be up to congress to reimpose the sanctions on iran, which would tear the deal up deeply. we are getting the blind quotes and all the articles being written today where leader are saying thanks but no thanks, we don't want to be the ones to tear it apart. >> the relationship with the white house are frosty at this point and they don't feel a obligated to carry the president's water, because they don't feel he's been good with the leadership. the president has sort of a symbolic case to make that he has done what he promised to do, which was get rid of the deal that he was so critical of and said was the worst ever. we have seen actually in multiple ways this administration trying to have it both ways, and try to keep the
6:30 am
status quo and not disrupt things, but on the other hand fulfill the promise that was made to upend the status quo. daca, for example, there's an issue where the administration didn't want to take the heat for canceling, so sort of left it in place or tried to keep it in place but at the same time was on the hook for promised to end that, and even a symbolic move can have big effects. it may not, in fact, continue the status quo. it creates uncertainty. >> iran gets a say in this, not to mention allies around the world. thank you all very much. the headline making russian dossier, and the author questioned by the office of the special counsel. new details ahead. allergies?

6:34 am
6:35 am
a cnn exclusive in the russia investigation, an intriguing interview by the team lead by special counsel, robert mueller. they have spoke to the maker of the dossier. a former british spy, the man who write this dossier, has been an elusive figure to say the least. our crime and justice reporter has the details. what you have learned? >> that's right. it was over the summer, john, we learned investigators working with bob mueller's team met with the former mi6 officer that put together the dossier. much of it has been reported on. it contains a series of memos detailing alleged russian efforts to aid trump's campaign. democrats, you know, the special
6:36 am
counsel is now working to determine whether any of the series of contacts between trump campaign associates and suspected russian operatives broke u.s. law. we don't know what information he may have provided to mueller's team but we know he has previously provided the fbi information on some of the sources he used to put together the dossier, his memos. and the intelligence community has verified some of the details, and parts of it have been corroborated. the president has taken issue with the intelligence community over this, and calling it fake news in previous tweets. despite the president's words, congressional investigators still want to talk to steal. take a listen. >> though we have been incredibly enlightened in our ability to rebuild backwards, the steal dossier, up to a
6:37 am
certain date, getting past that point has been somewhat impossible. >> a part of why that has been impossible is because steal has not yet spoken with them. we are told he has not ruled out talking to the senate intelligence committee though there's no indication as to when that might take place, john. >> very interesting. thank you so much for that. survivors in las vegas fighting for their lives inside the hospital. we will hear from family members helping them fight. parodontax, the toothpaste that helps prevent bleeding gums. if you spit blood when you brush or floss you may have gum problems and could be on the journey to much worse. help stop the journey of gum disease. try parodontax toothpaste. it's clinically proven to remove plaque, the main cause of bleeding gums. for healthy gums, and strong teeth. leave bleeding gums behind. with parodontax toothpaste.

6:50 am
public support of the cause of women's rights. in washington, republican congressman tim murphy of pennsylvania resigning amid reports he urged a woman with whom he had an extra marital affair to have an abortion. murphy is a fierce opponent of abortion rights. here to discuss, cnn white house reporter kate bennett, cnn contributor selena zito. before we get to the meat of the segment, which is really a celebration of hypocrisy. i want to read part of the statement from harvey weinstein right now that he gave after "the new york times" report. he said i came of age in the 60s and 70s when all the rules about behavior and workplaces were different. that was the culture then. so, you know, i mean i read a fair amount of history and i'm unfamiliar, selena, with the era when bosses routinely asked employees to watch them shower which is something part of the "new york times" story. selena, i guess my question to you is, where does this rank in the range of inadequate apologies and explanations?
6:51 am
>> if the rankings were one to ten, i would say maybe 54. i mean, there's no apology there. he's getting tutored on how to behave. i mean, just common sense should dictate to you this is not appropriate way to behave. this is what happens sometimes to people, men and women, in this case a man, when they become powerful and they believe that power makes them above sort of normal, common, decent behavior. and he took it to a new level. his apology is not an apology. if i were any of those victims i would be appalled by what he said. tutored? who gets tutored on how to behave normally? >> yeah. >> kate bennett, not only that, he also took that apology as a chance to lash out at the nra which fast i can tell isn't connected to the accusations against harvey weinstein in any way? >> no. i think he was sort of hoping
6:52 am
for some sort of leeway by using political and sort of national hot button issues right now and a national tragedy which makes his apology pretty deplorable. he also quoted jay-z. he was sort of trying everything he could there in the apology to get sympathy and i think, again, you know, this is an industry that coined the term casting couch. this stuff has been going on for decades and decades in hollywood. and, you know, i was actually happy to see this story come out yesterday because it meant that more women are standing up and taking advantage of strength in numbers and coming forward and the sooner and more people that do this and have that courage, the more this behavior goes away. >> and the bravery, the bravery it took to be named publicly. i mean that is something that should be noticed here. it took a lot for the women to come forward. kate, when we talk about hypocrisy, though, this is liberal hollywood, also liberal
