tv Erin Burnett Out Front CNN October 11, 2017 4:00pm-5:00pm PDT
she needs light. she needs her daily medicines. these are basic things. these are basic things. three weeks after maria, she can't get. >> what a heartbreaking story, layla santiago doing extraordinary work. we'll stay on top of this story. that's it for me. erin burnett "outfront" starts right now. "outfront" next, breaking news. los angeles police respond to a 911 call at the home of harvey weinstein's daughter as we're learning that weinstein could be facing possible criminal charges. and more break iing news. president trump promising a miracle tax cut for the middle class. but is it a miracle? well, maybe for somebody, but not the middle class. plus, we're learning that the roex of the vegas shooter was called in minutes before the carnage began. we have the stunning dispatch audio tonight.
let's go "outfront." and good evening. i'm erin burnett. this evening, the breaking news. the la p pd responding to a 911 call to the home of harvey weinstein's daughter. police would not confirm the nature of call, but it comes as more and more women are coming forward with allegations of sexual assault. and his wife said she was leaving him are their children. also tonight, hillary clinton speaking on the television for the first time since the scandal broke. she had been silent against weinstein. a major democratic donor and she called a friend until yesterday. five days after the allegations surfaced. here she is tonight speaking to our fareed zakaria. >> i was just sick. i was shocked. i was appalled. it was something that was just intolerable in every way. and you know, like so many people who have come forward and
spoken out, this was a different side of a person who i and many others had known. in the past. >> would you have called him a friend? >> yes, i probably would have. and so would so many others. people in democratic politics for a couple of decade appreciated his help and support. and i think these stories coming the light now and people who never spoke out before, having the courage to speak out, just clearly demonstrates that this behavior that he engaged in cannot be tolerated. >> right, a lot more of what she had to say ahead because there is a lot more. we begin though with stephanie elam in los angeles tonight and stephanie, what do you know about this 911 call? >> well, what we understand happened, erin, is that los
angeles police department officers responded to the house of the daughter of harvey weinstein at about 10:37 a.m. they're not giving out a lot of details. they're saying they're currently investigating, but obviously, this is noteworthy considering all of the turmoil around this man. all of the accusations that are coming out about him, but little mag on what that mapped, who was there and what may have happened that would lead his daughter or someone who was there to make that call. >> thank you very much, stephanie, as we try to figure out the nature of this. now to mark preston, stacey honowitz and brian steltser. brian, let me start with you and what you're hearing about weinstein. >> certainly in recent days, his friends have been worried about him. he traveled in a very elite group of media ceos, hollywood big shots, people like that. i spoke with a ceo of a major media company earlier in week who said i am concerned about harvey. i'm concerned he's going to lash
out in the wrong way and that he's not going to take the right lessons from this ordeal. earlier in the week, he was blaming his brother, bob, saying this was all bob's plot to force me out of the company. as of last night, his representative said he is on the way to rehab. there were reports he might be fly iing to europe for rehab b. as of right now though, he's still in los angeles. he said to page six, i am going to go to rehab. i don't know where yet. i'm doing therapy. this sounds like a man that is more with himself and has his friends concerneded. >> and still in l.a. we don't know the nature of the 911 call, whether it was related to him or his state at this time. mark preston, what do you make of hillary clinton coming out and look, she had not said anything for five days given the 90 minute talk in which he talked about sexism and didn't bring it up. she did put out a statement. but these are her first comments we are hearing in depth and
there's a lot more we're going to play in a moment, but in depth, you heard her say how she felt when she heard this about a person she called a friend. >> so a couple of things, one is as you pointed out last night, it took her five days to put o statement out. now, you've got to give someone the benefit of doubt. maybe a day or two after "the new york times" break, however to wait five days then a sixth day to go on camera and address it, especially since that was a major plank of your campaign, the empowerment of women, specifically young women in the workplace and advancement in breaking the glass ceiling, so that is where she field as did president obama. i had a republican call me today. somebody who folks would see as very centrist thinking. they said i'm frus freighted that if this would have been a republican, the media would have gone after him a lot harder! the media went after hillary clinton and barack obama plenty hard for the past few days. aren't we holding them to a much
higher standard? hillary clinton has said a lot more than president trump has about this. >> we're comparing apples and oranges. we can talk about donald trump, the hollywood access tape, the republican party, we can talk about that any other day. at the moment, we're talking about somebody who's campaign was based upon the empowerment of women and to wait that long is really absurd and i will say this. the republican did say, the republican did say, that we had done a good job, but overall, i do agree with him. that there wasn't as much made out of this if it had been a republican instead. >> so, stacy, let me just play here. another part of the exchange between fareed and hillary clinton when fareed asked her whether people knew and again, the context here for everyone watching is hillary clinton call ed him a friend. she did today. she said he had been a friend. that is very clear and someone who had been a major donor to her presidential campaign, her senate campaign and to democrats everywhere and a democratic
liberal activist, so free to ask whether people knew and here's how she responded. >> well, i certainly didn't and i don't know who did. but i can only speak for myself and i think speak for many others who knew him primarily through politics. but the courage of these women coming forward now is really important because it can't just end with one person's disgraceful behavior and the consequences that he is now facing. this has to be a wake up call and shine a bright spotlight on anything like this behavior anywhere. at anytime. >> of course, stacy, that's the right thing to say and the important thing to say. obviously, yes, it would have been great if she had said that days ago, but that is the right thing to say. >> yeah, absolutely. i don't really think this is a partisan issue. i mean you're somebody that's
facing sexual assault charges and all these things are in your background, i don't think you can expect your friends to know it's going on. you always hear those stories where a rabbi or a priest or the man down the street you thought was so nice, turns out he's committing crimes, sexual crimes among kids and the first thing you say is oh, my god, i never would have thought. i don't think the real close friends of his other than in the circles of hearing they whe was creep, i don't think they knew that he was doing this to all these women. i think that's she's trying to say. i don't know about her timing. i don't know why she waited. she's doing what she has to do now and that is to talk about that she did not know and that what he is doing is abombable and she's not going to stand for it and nobody else should stand for it. >> that's another thing she said was actually about the money. as everyone knows, plenty of democrats, in fact, you know, democrat after democrat from
kristen gillibrand, richard blumenthal, on and on, have said they're going to return u the money. if not return, they're saying they'll donate it. here's what she said when fareed asked about that. >> senator blumenthal says people should give back the money he donated to him. he donated to you directly and indirectly. would you give the money back? >> well, there's no one to gif it back to. what other people are saying, what my former colleagues are are saying is that they're ging to donate it to charity. i give 10% of my income to charity every year. this will be part of that. there's no doubt about it. >> mark? >> well, 10% plus, right? or is this 10% there of. the bottom line is hillary clinton, other democrats, was on the receiving end of a large amount of money from harvey weinstein as well as those people who had supported him and had backed him and he would hold
fund-raisers. it's not just the amount of money that came out of his pocket. it was the people that would show up that he would hold. the problem is that you have to answer for the misdeeds of others and in this case, democrats happen to be on the short stick of this one and they had to pony up and address it. you see the body language there. she didn't seem to want to address that. but she had to. >> no, and that's what's interesting about it, she didn't want to address it. for someone who is -- >> well ahead of time about other topics. >> right, but she knew this was going to come up. she knew this was going to be a crucial part of it. and she didn't want to. at least on that part. really delve into it. which again just raises the question. she wants to be and she is for so many women, the leader of women's causes and women's rights in this country. >> in some say, she and barack obama serve as alternative
fantasy presidents. you look at the way they act when tremp says something disturbing. they weigh in. they jump at the opportunity to serve as that president in waiting almost even though none of them are ever going to run again. is it too much to ask for consistency? whether it's a democrat or republican, when these stories happen, when these scandals break, i think what most americans want is just consistency of outreach. >> consistency of outrage. >> there's such a sense of embarrassment on anyone's part thatt ehad a relationship with him. they're going the say how could i be friendly with this person. i think they feel the same way. obama's daughter was an intern for the weinstein company. do you think if he knew this was going on o, he would allowed his daughter to go work there? now, i'm caught. let me give back, step up, do the right thing. that's the kind of framework we're in right now. >> of course, mark, the big
question is what's to stop it from happening again? eventually, this story will happen again and it will just be another name. we've seen it with roger ales. bill o'reilly. we've seen e it now with harvey we weinstein and with donald trump. >> what we're seeing now in the last 24, 42, 8 hours is that women feel like they can come out and speak because they feel there's a level of protection around thim, bem, but what happn the news environment is people soon forget. this is one of those instances that you hope now five days from now, five weeks from now, five years from now, that we don't recycle this and have to go through all these steps again. that our memories are a little longer than programs what they usually are. >> thank you all very much. trz and next, president trump selling his tax plan as a middle class miracle. it is a miracle. and we'll show you how. and breaking news. historic destruction that's hard to believe and getting even worse tonight as infernos

crowd packed with truck drivers in pennsylvania over his plan to cut taxes. truckers among those trump promises will benefit the most from his plan because tonight, he's selling the plan he calls a middle class miracle saying rich trends are in agreement with him. >> so many people have come up to me and say give it to the middle class. give it to people that need it. give it to people that want to spend it. give it to the middle class. don't give it to us and that's what we're trying so hard to do. >> trying so hard to do. well, apparently, it's far from a sure thing. here's how top economic adviser, gary cohn, responded when asked if he could guarantee the middle class in the united states of america would pay lower taxes under trump's plan. >> there will be middle class families who o get a tax increase on your plan, correct? >> george, there's an exception to every rule. >> so that's a yes. >> look, i can't guarantee
anything. you could always find a unique family somewhere. >> except it isn't a unique family somewhere. an exception to the rule. that is unless you think millions and millions and millions o american families are just exceptions to the rule. one of the people president trump will need to get his plan passed has been clear that the's plan is not as advertised on this issue. senator rand paul tweeting this is a gop tax plan? possibly 30% of middle class gelts a tax hike? i hope the final details are better than this. he was refer tog this report that we have here, which is one in three middle class american families would see their tax bill go up. and the it's very clear. the richest will get the biggest cuts. jeff is "outfront" at the white house and jeff, look, the president out there in the rally environment in which he feels most comfortable sell iing this plan. but it is going to be a tough sell. >> erin, it is indeed. and one of the challenges and draw backs of not having many
details is having a framework of the plan -- others to define it and indeed this plan is being defined by outside analysts and senators like you were just mentioning there and in fact, if you look at the fine print of what the proposals are, some of the wealthiest americans benefit mouch more than the middle clas americans, so this is something the white house knows is a rhetorical challenge to say the least. so i was talking to a senior white house official earlier today who said make no mistake about it. this is still a very, very tough sell. for the reasons also it adds to the deficit. this man is plan is is not paid for at all. many find it difficult to acc t accept. >> so, i want to play something for you totally unrelated and frankly, mysterious. that the president said during his tax speech. here he is. >> america is being respected again. something happened today,.
we're wr a country that totally disrespected us called with some very, very important news. wunl of my generals came in and said, i have to tell you, a year ago, they would have never done that. it was a great sign of respect. you'll probably be hear iing abt over the next several days. >> what is he talking about? >> erin, i wish i could tell you. frankly, some here aren't sure. we did talk to white house press secretary sarah sanders a short time ago. she said they would explain this when they can. this is just another reality show flavored tease this president likes to throw out there. as sort after an example of something how things have changeded under his watch here. but erin, we have no idea what country he was talking about. what threat he was talking about. >> all right, thank you very much. and now, to steven moor and austin goolsby, the chairman of the economic council of advisers under president obama.
steve. a middle class tax cut? i mean, obviously, you've seen the same report i've seen. it is pretty definitive at this point from the bare bones that we have, 30% of middle class families would get a tax cut. not a unique family somewhere. that's millions and millions of people. >> i disagree with this analysis that this is a tough sell to the american people. i think it's a pretty easy sale. i was looking at some polling today that showed that by a 60-30 margin, americans think a tax cut would be good for the economy and that's really the whole point of this. >> what saying is but what if it's not a tax cut for 30% of middle class families? that's a pretty hard sale. >> to be clear, that's the tax policy center and they are a very liberal left wing group. >> we would have identify them, rand paul tweeted that out and we identified them as nonpartis nonpartisan. >> first of all, on this issue of whether the middle class will get a tax cut, if it's, if the middle class, if every middle class family isn't getting a tax
cut, it's not going to pass and rand paul was right to call out the white house and say look, there's some problems with the way you've constructed this. we have to make sure every middle class household going to get a tax cut of several thousand dollars. that's what americans want. when i was driving over here in a cab, i asked the cab driver what do you think of this plan? he said show me the money. americans do want a tax cut, but the other quick point is that the point of cutting the business tax rates is to increase jobs and increase wages to middle class people. i mean, there's a good study that kevin haset of the white house did a few years ago that shows when you cut the corporate tax about two-thirds of benefits actually go to middle class households and even the congressional budget office put out a report saying two out of every three dollars of the benefit of cutting the corporate tax go to the middle class. >> unless they buy back stock. go ahead, austin.
>> hey, look, we know that the treasury had a report on its website that suggested that only 18% of a tax cut for the biggest corporations would go through to wages. and they purged that from the website. now, the president went to the truck drivers today and the goolsbys know all about trucking. my cousin was a truck driver. an uncle. i have another uncle who started a truck driving firm and my father worked at a truck manufacturing company. no truck driver that i have ever spoken to has ever said anything about the desire to cut the estate tax by a half trillion dollars. i never heard any truck driver say you know what we need in this country? we need to cut the tax rate of millionaire and billionaire past throughs to make sure that that will trickle down to the rest of us. i think this is nonsense. and i think when the middle class sees the details, they're going to recognize it for what it is. >> well, also, you have one of trump's own economic advisers.
another one. not gary cohn. this is his budget director. asked last week what p percent of the benefit of this plan will go to the 1%? right, the president says there's no tax cut for the wealthy. but he was asked what percent of the gain will go to the top? he admitted he couldn't even say. here he is. >> no, i don't think anybody can. anybody who says they can is lying to you. why is that? because the bill is not finished yet. >> how can he come out and be honest and say i don't know? at the tax policy center says all the gains, the vast majority of the dwanes top gainers are going to be the wealthy. but the president just denies it. i mean, would you admit, steve, that wealthy are going to get a tax cut? >> yeah. everybody's going to get if you have a job and you earn an income and you pay income taxes, you're going to get a tax cut. you're forgetting and there are
a lot of thipgs that are going to be fulled back, for example, getting rid of the staten local tax deduction which costs the treasury about a million dollars. that's the benefit of that goes to the wemtiest americans. by the way, austin, this is what the, what we did back in 1980s when reagan was prosecutesident. >> oh, my gosh, you do it again. all right. i just want to squeeze one more thing in here, which is accord to gabe sherman writing in "vanity fair," steve bannon has told people that he thinks trump has only a 30% chance of serve ing full term. okay. let ta sink in for a second. here's the full quote. several months ago according to two sources with knowledge of the conversation, steve bannon told trump that the risk to his presidency wasn't impeachment, but the 25th amendment. the provision by which the majority of the cabinet can vote to remove the president.
when bannon mentioned it, trump said, what's that? according to a source, bannon said he thinks he has a 30% chance of making it the full term. austin, agree? >> the 25th amendment is about the mental state of the president. i am not in the president's head and if i were, i would evict myself. i know they are trying to do something with this tax plan that is going to massive cost the american people money. they've outlined about $5 trillion of tax cuts and they have outlined virtually no pay fors and if they do that, he probably doesn't deserve to finish his term. >> because good luck getting those tax ded dethose back. >> your response saying that the cabinet would basically remove the president. >> ipg there's a 60% chance that donald trump is going to be
re-elected. but it's all about growing the economy. getting jobs back. it was people like my friend austin who a year ago were saying gee, we can't get to 3% growth. we're at 3% growth now. the economy is growing at 3%. we believe we can get it to up to 3.5, 4% with this cut. you're seeing what's happening with the stock market. you're seeing the confidence in business. this is the next big part of trump's economic revival plan and i think if he gets it done, we're going to see big increases in growth and if that happens, as you know, the deficit is going to come down. >> thank you both very much. i know we'll have you back for take two through ten and plus more. next, breaking news, the infernos are spreading. it is the deadliest california wildfires in the quarter century. 21 people now u have died in this inferno. plus, could the las vegas killer's rampage have been stop ed? we have new audio tonight. a warning sounded by the security guard. >> call the police.

>> what you're looking at now is some of that fire. that has this area concerned. this is southern sonoma county. this is an area that is under evacorders. that's a house that's been threatened by fire. as the winds change, this is what they're worried about now. that big change in winds. it is start tog rain ash on us. the winds are starting to move. it could hit as high as 45 miles per hour and we could see whole new communities wiped out. erin. >> unbelievable. 45 miles an hour. ash literally coming down. it is a deadly environment there right now. thank you. as we continue covering that,al new tonight, a heart stopping firsthand account of a mandalay bay worker who was one of the first people to encounter the las vegas shooter. that engineer was forced to dodge bullets as the gunman started shooting at him and a security guard and tonight,
we're hearing one of the first calls for help. scott mcclain is "outfront" in las vegas. >> call the police. someone's fire iing a gun up he a rifle on the 32nd floor county the hallway. >> copy. >> newly released police dispatch audio adding clarity to an evolving timeline of the las vegas massacre. sheriff joe lombardo on defense. police originally believed mandalay bay security guard was shot in the leg after the suspect had fired ton concert. the sheriff now says campos was shot six minutes before the shooting at the venue began. lombardo told kalas no one is trying to hide anything and what we want to do is draw the most accurate picture we can an i'm telling you right now today that that timeline might change again because it's human factor
involved. the individual that put the time stamp associated with the radio call they received, maybe their watch was different. maybe they lookeded at a different time when they put it down. a revision leaves open the question of why he stopped firing when he did. since police didn't arrive on the 32nd floor until two minutes after he fired his last shot and didn't enter his suite until an hour after that. the company that owns mandalay bay, mgm, is skeptical of the new timeline. in a statement, a spokesperson wrote in part, we cannot be certain about the most recent timeline that has been communicated publicly. and we believe what is currently being expressed may not be accurate. the timing of the shots is not all that's changed. sheriff lombardo says paddock checked this three nights earlier than thought. traveling back and forth between the hotel and his home in mesquite, nevada. mgm says on two occasions, a bellman helped him bring bags up to his room through the service elevator. they've spotted him on security cameras around las vegas more than 200 times.
alone on every occasion, but none of the sightings have helped explain why he carry ied tout attack in the first place. >> those things that you would expect to find, we have not found. >> campos, the security guard who first spotted trouble, wasn't the only employee who walked into chaos. when engineer steven shuck arrived on the 32nd floor, he was quickly told to take cover. >> my whole family and i appreciate him. at first when the first shooting started, i was kind of frozen for a second. and he, he yelled at me take cover, take cover. if he yelled a second too late, i would have been shot, so i owe him my life. >> and there are plenty of questions being raised about the shift and timeline and how it is that 18 minutes could pass between the time that campos was shot and the time that police arrived on the 32nd floor, but this morning, clark county sheriff joe lombardo that local media that police did everything
right. everyone at mgm did a fantastic job and if you're looking for a fall guy, there isn't one. >> thank you very much. so, look, this is what anyone in the victims, the families of those who died and those who are injured and the american people want to know. we know that the shot happened it shall first shot happened from the security guard six minutes before he shot anybody out that window. we know there was a call to dispatch before the hooting happ happened saying there was a shooter and the police didn't arrive until two minutes after. they say the police and mgm did everything right. did everybody do everything right? >> sure. i served in the federal law enforcement for 25 years. very different from what we do from regular cop work. we do proactive law enforcement. we make a case, we choose the time and place and we go in and go down. one guy is going to get arrest.
we bring ten people. two guys, 20 people. what they had to deal with in las vegas is reactive work. it's not proactive, so you get the call and you have to respond. there's the fog of war, the erroneous reports we know happen in social media. i don't criticize the sheriff of the las vegas metropolitian police department one iota for their response in the tactical resolution realm and i say that as a former hostage team rescue member. what i'm crate krit cal abocrits why would you release a timeline until it's dialed in? the kron ol ji is important. >> when you look at 9:59, it gets called in. isn't until 10:17 when people that can deal with this issue arrive on the floor. right nourk that's timeline we have, okay, it could shift, but are you comfortable saying everybody did everything right? >> yes, 18 minutes. now, i know there are reports that there were police officers at the hotel prior to this on

destruction and the stabilization, insecurity and -- trump himself promise not to intervene. that is so costly and risky and i hope that president trump remains committed to his own words and no longer interfere into affairs of our region. >> ambassador thank you so much for your time. i appreciate it. >> thank you it was my pleasure. on a lighter note, president trump may be having second thoughts about a rapper he called fantastic. here's jennie moss. >> rapper eminem went nuclear on president trump. ♪ >> in a video that aired during the bet hip hop awards. ♪
