2:00 am
we're following breaking news overnight. a u.s. navy plane going down off the coast after japan. search and rescue operations are right now underway. we'll bring you the latest in just a moment. >> he totally denies it. he says it didn't happen and you know, you have to listen to him also. >> no endorsement, but no doubt president trump wants roy moore in the u.s. senate despite allegations that he is a pedophile. and new sexual harassment claims against the dean of the house of representatives. now michigan's biggest newspaper wants john conyers to resign after he used taxpayer money to settle with another accuser. welcome to "early start." it is wednesday, november 22nd. about 5:00 a.m. on the east coast. and breaking news overnight, a u.s. navy plane carrying 11 crew members and passengers crashed overnight southeast off the
2:01 am
coast of okinawa, japan. the plane was headed to the uss ronald reagan aircraft carrier in the philippines sea. already this year four u.s. navy warships have been involved in accidents in those waters. cnn's ivan watson was in okinawa on a different navy ship. he's been following the developments all morning from hong kong. there are some survivors but there's still so many questions to be answered. >> reporter: that's right and we don't know the state -- the current state of those survivors. those details coming from the japanese defense minister who says that eight of the 11 passengers and crew have been rescued from what he identified as a c-2 transport plane. now, that is an aircraft fixed wing that has two propellers and is used by the nay va to land on board aircraft carriers and be catapulted off and the navy says in its statement that the crash took place within the last five
2:02 am
hours in the philippines sea, somewhere off the coast of the japanese island of okinawa. it hasn't explained why the plane crashed and says that the search and rescue operations are still underway. the japanese say they have dispatched ships to assist in this process as well. the plane was flying according to the u.s. navy to the u.s. aircraft carrier ronald reagan which had just days ago been conducting exercises along two other aircraft carriers in the pacific region. exercises and demonstration of military might that greatly angered north korea which of course is at odds with the u.s. right now. and as you pointed out, this is coming on the back of what has been a very difficult and deadly year for the u.s. navy in the asia pacific region with at least four navy ships involved in collisions, two of them quite deadly in june and in august,
2:03 am
the u.s. destroyer's fitzgerald and john mccain, 17 sailors killed in those collisions with commercial shipping vessels and the u.s. navy concluded that those accidents could have been avoided, fired a number of top navy officers and concluded that they were the results of mistakes by commanding officers. >> yeah, ivan, a vice admiral with the 7th fleet of the navy was relieved of his duty. we'll see if any changes come as a result of this accident. thank you for following that story for us. president trump never actually used the e word, endorse, but on tuesday he strongly defended roy moore. at least eight women have accused the embattled alabama republican senate candidate of pursuing romantic relationships with him when they were teenagers. a few of them also accused moore of assault, but tuesday on his way to florida for the thanksgiving holiday, the president seemed much more concerned about the idea of another democrat in a closely
2:04 am
divided senate. >> we don't need a liberal person in there, a democrat. jones, i've looked at his record. it's terrible on crime, it's terrible on the border. it's terrible in the military. i can tell you for a fact we do not need somebody that's going to be bad on crime, bad on borders, bad with the military, bad for the 2nd amendment. >> as for why the president only spoke up now after two weeks of silence, a republican source close to the white house says that president trump doubted moore's accusers and he identified moore's experience as similar to the accusations levelled against him during the 2016 campaign. senior white house correspondent is traveling with the president. he joins us with more. >> reporter: president trump doing something he has not done for the last two weeks, directly and personally weighing in on that explosive senate race in alabama. before flying here to florida where he'll be spending his
2:05 am
thanksgiving vacation, the president fully embraced roy moore. he said he did not necessarily disbelieve the women who have come forward to accuse him of wrong doing, but he did accept roy moore's denials. >> he denies it. look, he denies it. he totally denies it. he says it didn't happen and you know, you have to listen to him also. you're talking about he said 40 years ago this did not happen. so you know -- >> the president all be giving his endorsement. he said he would potentially think about campaigning with roy moore in the coming weeks before that special election in december. so in trying to get a sense of what went into the president's thinking into his abruptly supporting roy moore, aides close to him say that simply the noise and confusion from this tidal wave of cases across the country that have rippled from hollywood to politics to media made it easier to stick with roy moore. in the words of one republican in the white house, it's harder to tell who the bad guy is now
2:06 am
and the white house eager to keep that seat from alabama in republican hands. >> thank you for that. a new accusation of sexual harassment has surfaced against democratic congressman john conyers of michigan. a former female staffer alleging the incidents occurred in 2015 and '16. now the free press is calling on conyers to step down following reports that he paid a woman to settle a separate sexual harassment claim with taxpayer funds. the newspaper says that conyers' resignation would send a clear warning to other members of congress. the free press writing quote, it is a betrayal that breaches the most fundamental trust that exists between a public servant and the people that person represents. even if conyers could prove that he did not make inappropriate advances to his former staffer there's no defense for having used dollars from his office to settle a claim. the house ethics committee announcing yesterday it is going to launch an investigation into
2:07 am
congressman conyers' conduct. he is the longest serving lawmaker in the house of representatives serving more than 50 years. let's bring in our digital director, zach wolf. he's live for us in washington this morning. we'll get to conyers in just a moment but first i wanted to discuss the white house's changing tune on roy moore. i think we have a montage of how they've shifted over the past two weeks. listen to this. >> is this senate seat that important? >> there's no senate seat more important than the notion of child pedophilia, chuck. >> the principle is there's no senate seat that's worth more than a child. >> the president believes these allegations are very troubling and should be taken seriously. >> we want the votes there the senate to get this tax -- this tax bill through. >> the president wants people, both in the house and the senate that support his agenda. >> roy moore denies it. and by the way, he gives a total
2:08 am
denial. >> well, zach, it went from, you know, no senate seat is more important than the notion of ped fe -- pedophilia and what does this say about the white house right now? >> i think they really want that tax reform bill passed. if they lose that vote that will be a crippling development for the math of not only the tax reform bill, but you know, any number of other things that they try to do, particularly with a simple majority if they try to do other things through budget reconciliation. so yeah, you can certainly see the change in tone there where they've gone from really, you know, skepticism about moore and these -- and these claims to maybe not an endorsement, but pretty close to it. >> and zach, how does this play for democrats? president trump yesterday left
2:09 am
the door open to potentially going down to alabama to campaign with roy moore. that's a campaign ad that writes itself. >> reporter: it sure is. he's running out of time to do that and you know, that would be a remarkable thing, i think, given these allegations against roy moore. that's a full-on endorsement if he were to decide to do that. but leaving the door open to it he's definitely playing around here with the language and you know, dancing up to an endorsement which is essentially an endorsement in itself. but you can definitely tell that they really -- they really want to keep that vote. i want to play another sound byte for you from president trump before he headed to florida yesterday. he talked about this being a special period for women. here it is. >> women are very special. i think it's a very special time because a lot of things are coming out and i think that's good for our society and i think it's very, very good for women.
2:10 am
and i'm very happy a lot of these things are coming out and i'm very happy -- >> do you believe the accusers? >> he's very happy it's being exposed but the president himself has an interesting relationship with women. consider that source -- a republican source close to the white house told cnn part of the reason the president hadn't weighed in on roy moore is because he was afraid of starting a conversation about the accusations against him. >> but he decided to weigh in on al franken which started the conversation anyway. it's always going to be difficult for this president having weathered the allegations against him especially during the campaign to talk about this stuff. it's going to be one of the most uncomfortable things for him going forward especially in this c change moment we're encountering where so many women are coming forward. it's never going to be comfortable for him. >> we have to talk about representative john conyers. he now apparently has a mixed
2:11 am
legacy. he's known as a civil rights hero, but now we're hearing reports that he allegedly paid a former staffer more than $27,000 for her to deny that her allegations, her initial complaint against him ever happened. should he resign? >> well, you certainly see the paper there in michigan calling for it. this the complicated way that they sort of hid the payment or seemed to have hid this payment so that it was off the books makes it even, you know, more shady, i guess if true. so it's going to be hard for him to stay in office at some point, especially now that we've learned that there's another accuser who filed papers, but then when they couldn't be sealed tried to basically drop that lawsuit. so it's not an isolated incident at this point and when it's not an isolated incident it becomes more difficult for somebody like conyers to stay on. >> we appreciate you being up

2:32 am
crew members and passengers crashed southeast of okinawa japan. the plane was headed to the uss ronald reagan airplane carrier in the philippines sea. eight people have been pulled from the water. already this year four u.s. navy warships have been involved in accidents in these waters. ivan watson was in okinawa a few weeks ago in a different navy ship. he's been following developments for us. what more are you learning? >> reporter: i have some good news to report. just now the u.s. navy 7th fleet put out an updated statement and an officer confirmed to me by phone that eight people who were rescued from the 11 passengers and crew aboard the transport plane that crashed, eight of them have been rescued and are in good condition. however, the search and rescue operation continues for three other missing people from aboard
2:33 am
this transports plane. a navy public affairs officer also saying that the plane was believed to be enroute to the uss ronald reagan when the crash happened. we still don't have an explanation for why or how close the plane was to the aircraft carrier itself when the crash took place. for instance, was it on the final approach and these planes, these transport planes which have two propellers, they land aboard the aircraft carrier and they use a hook and cable system to come to a screeching halt. i've flown aboard a u.s. aircraft carrier on this type of plane and you come to a jerking haltd when you land. we don't know how close it was at that moment when the crash took place. so the search and rescue operations do continue. as you pointed out, this comes during what has been a very difficult year for the u.s. navy's 7th fleet in the asia pacific region. there have been four collisions
2:34 am
with ships this year. two of those collisions involving destroyers. the uss fitzgerald and the uss john mccain and in those cases at least 17 sailors were killed. the u.s. navy concluded that the accidents could have been avoided and that they were the result of mistakes and a number of commanding officers were relieved of duty, essentially fired for those accidents. of course, in this case, this involves a navy aircraft and we'll wait to learn more about this. >> these are some of the busiest waters in the world. it's still concerning though that there have been so many accidents in such a short span of time. thank you for the reporting. back to the states now, president trump never actually used the e word endorse, but on tuesday he strongly defended roy moore. at least eight women have accused the embattled alabama republican senate candidate of pursuing romantic relationships with them when they were teenagers. a few of them also accused moore of assault. but tuesday on his way to
2:35 am
florida for thanksgiving, the president seemed much for concerned about the idea of another democrat in the senate. >> we don't need a liberal person in there, a democrat. jones, i've looked at his record. it's terrible on crime. it's terrible on the border. it's terrible in the military. i can tell you for a fact, we do not need somebody that's going to be bad on crime, bad on borders, bad with the military, bad for the 2nd amendment. >> as for why the president is only speaking up now after two weeks of silence, our republican source close to the white house says that president trump doubted moore's accusers identifying moore's experience as similar to his own and the accusations that were levelled against him during the 2016 campaign. our correspondent is traveling with the president. >> reporter: president trump doing something he has not done for the last two weeks, directly and personally weighing in on
2:36 am
that explosive senate race in alabama. before flying here to florida where he'll be spending his thanksgiving vacation, the president fully embraced roy moore. he said he did not necessarily disbelieve the women who have come forward to accuse him of wrong doing, but he did accept roy moore's denials. >> he denies it. look, he denies it. he totally denies it. he says it didn't happen and you know, you have to listen to him also. you're talking about -- he said 40 years ago this did not happen. >> the president all be giving his endorsement. he said he would potentially think about campaigning with roy moore in the coming weeks before that special election in december. so in trying to get a sense of what went into the president's thinking into his abruptly supporting roy moore, aides close to him say that simply is noise and confusion from this tidal wave of cases across the country that have rippled from hollywood to politics to media simply made it easier for him to stick with roy moore. in the words of one republican
2:37 am
close to the white house it's harder to tell who the bad guy is now. and of course, the white house eager to keep that seat from alabama in republican hands. >> thank you for that, jeff. let's bring in our politics director zach wolf live from washington. thanks for staying up with us. first and foremost, what do you make of this apparent shift? the white house earlier staying mum on roy moore and now through kind of read between the lines language saying vote for him. >> we had been waiting to see what trump himself was going to say. earlier we heard his spokes people, kellyanne conway and others talk about no senate seat is more important than a child and that sort of moved its way into well, this is a really important seat and we want to get things done and trump comes out with finding a way to disbelieve these multiple consistent accounts from these
2:38 am
women in alabama, and saying, you know, despite this pattern and clearly it is a pattern that you have to look at roy moore's side too, which is kind of an interesting way to go about it, but you've definitely seen a shift here on the part of the white house going from kind of seeing what's going to happen to essentially endorsing moore, at least trump is, on his way down to florida. >> i hate to distract from what is a vital important conversation to have, but the president is up early and on twitter attacking a new favorite target, lavar ball. i want to share with you some of the tweets he sent out moments ago. it wasn't the white house, it wasn't the state department it wasn't the people on the ground that got his son out of a long-term prison sentence. it is me. lavar is just a poor man's version of don king without the hair, just think, lavar you could have spent the next five to ten years during thanksgiving
2:39 am
with your son in china, but no nba contract to support you, but remember lavar, shoplifting is not a little thing. it's a really big deal especially in china. ungrateful fool. it's not the first time that during a serious incident something that requires attention the loss potentially of american servicemen and women abroad, the president has taken to twitter to discuss something that doesn't really seem that consequential to a whole lot of people. >> i think you're nice saying to discuss it. he's basically trying to keep this fight he's got going with lavar ball going. he seems to enjoy it. the two men have kind of -- were built for each other the way that they, you know, the bravado that they use. but twitter is essentially a window on what's on his mind and he's seen somewhere -- some mention of lavar ball and probably that interview on cnn which was incredible with chris
2:40 am
cuomo and it's channelling straight on to his twitter feed. >> the comparison to don king i also find interesting and there's a lot to dissect there but we do have to move on to john conyers of michigan. he's being accused of not only misconduct but using taxpayer funds to try and cover up those accusatio accusations. the detroit free press editorial board wrote this, quote, it's a betrayal that breaches the most fundamental trust that exists between a public servant and the people that person represents. even if conyers could prove that he did not make inappropriate advances toward his former staffer, there's no defense for having used dollars from his congressional office to settle a claim. what do you make of these accusations? can he survive this? >> i think with the second accuser who didn't come forward, but it became clear that she tried to bring a suit and wanted to keep it secret and that's kind of a complicated side story, but if there are multiple
2:41 am
accusers and if they tried to secretly use government money to -- for payoffs, that gets very difficult. that gets very dicey, i think. it's hard to see a path forward for him, you know, but he denies these claims and we'll just have to see what happens, but this is not a good situation for the congressman. >> all right. we should note that conyers denies all the allegations. i did want to get to roy moore and some interesting polling out. people were asked, should roy moore be expelled if he wins and becomes a senator? overall, 60% said yes. 28% said no. similar numbers for women, a slightup tick there, 66% saying yes, he should be expelled but look at the number for republicans. almost half of republicans do not believe that roy moore should be expelled if he becomes senator. we're going into a 2018 that is going to be contentious. already we saw in virginia the potential for a democratic wave.
2:42 am
how do democrats use this against republicans next year and should republicans do more to buffer themselves, to prevent them from becoming as jeff flake said the party of roy moore? >> well, you know, you've seen this for the past couple of elections where democrats have tried to turn themselves essentially into the party of women. i think they're only going to double down on this after -- after roy moore and if he -- if he is in the senate, you know, it will -- it will only happen -- happen more. there had been some talk of trying to kick roy moore out of the senate. if he gets there i think we'll have to cross that bridge when we come to it but the republican number is interesting. republicans control the senate and they want to pass a tax bill so that would be a very difficult thing to kick him out. >> thank you so much for being up early with us and sharing your thoughts on a wide variety of topics. have a great thanksgiving if i don't talk to you before then. >> you too. north korea violating the arms disagreement with south korea by chasing a defector who crossed the border. he was shot five times.
