anything i think is wrong. by anybody. whether it be editorial boards, or the president. i'm going to do what i think is right. >> barr also promised to quit if the president crossed the line. >> if someone tried to stop a bona fide lawful investigation to cover up wrongdoing, i would resign. >> but barr did hedge on one issue that may cause trouble for democrats. cnn's jessica schneider has more on that from washington. >> dave and christine, an anticipated contentious hearing was actually quite calm with top committee democrat dianne feinstein saying this, so far, so good. and even delaware democrat chris coons said he's going to seriously consider supporting william barr's confirmation. and the reason for that may be barr's strong stance, defending robert mueller, pointing to their 30-year friendship and
vowing to protect the russia probe and make as much as he can about mueller's final report public. >> will you commit with providing whether mueller with the resources, funds and time needs to complete the investigation? >> yes. >> will you commit to assuring that special counsel mueller vm is not terminated without good cause, consistent with department regulations? >> absolutely. >> will you provide mueller's report to congress, not your rewrite or summary? >> my objective and goal is to get as much as i can of the information to congress and 9 publi the public. i don't know at the end of the day what will be releasable. >> barr did say he that he won't fire mueller, saying it will take something egregious saying he knows what type of investigator mueller is but in one issue that could rankle democr democrats barr was asked ask a
sitting president be indicted. >> for 40 years, the view of the executive branch is you can't indict a sitting president. >> i'm asking you what your view is right now. >> i actually haven't read those opinions in a long time but i see no reason to change them. >> now, barr was also asked several questions about presidential pardons. while he did say it is within the president's power to pardon individuals, he stressed it is also possible that the president can abuse his power by issuing certain pardons. and barr wouldn't rule out the possibility that mueller could subpoena the president. overall, barr wanted to take away that he will be the independent attorney general. with lawmakers at an impasse over border wall funding, the government shutdown is now in its 26th day. 800,000 federal workers and the families they support. real people, are the ones feeling the pinch. >> he is earning his paycheck, but he's just not getting it. >> the shutdown isn't just a
washington, d.c. problem. it's affecting real people here in iowa. >> getting our pay stubs on thursday and seeing zero dollars is just very disheartening. it makes it hard to wake up and want to go to work. >> liz runky is a mother of two in summerville, south carolina, and she depends on food stamps. >> it's important that the people that maybe around so affected by it, whether, you know, they don't have a government job or they've never received assistance, they need to see the faces of the people that it is affecting. >> coast guard is the only branch of the military not getting paid during the shutdown. in monterey, california, dive shop employees just down the road from the coast guard station decided to start a food drive to help their friends. the irs says it's bringing back 36,000 furloughed employees to work without pay. that means americans will get their tax refunds at the expense
of those employees. on tuesday, a federal judge denied a request from a federal employees union to require the government to pay air traffic controllers who have been working without pay. and bad news for federal employees looking for help from the public. cnn has obtained a alert to homeland security employees warning that accepting money from gofundme or similar sites could be illegal. the president's economists doubled projection of lost economic growth each week of the shutdown. the chairman kevin hasek calculates shutdown reduces economic growth by 0.13 percentage points. standard & poor's projected $1.2 billion in losses. how? workers don't get paid and that means they don't spend. jamie dimon told reporters the shutdown could reduce growth to zero in the country if it goes on for the whole quarter.
and it could hurt airlines. delta on cnbc. >> one of the other issues to us is that we're seeing reduction revenues in the month of january. not huge, but about $25 million, due to the fact that government contractors and some government officials are not traveling the way they would anticipate because of the shutdown. >> in many ways, shutting down the government costs more than keeping it open. the ceo of citigroup on a conference call said this, right now, we see the biggest risk in the global economy as one of talking ourselves into a recession. well, if you think washington, d.c. is a mess, take a look at the chaos across the pond in the uk. >> nos to the left, 432. >> prime minister theresa may's deal crushed. a humiliating plan to guide out of the european union. they face another no confidence
vote today. the british people facing a very uncertain future. let's go live to downing street and bring in cnn's hadas gold. another vote for may? can she survive this or does jeremy corbyn or boris johnson have support of parliament? >> reporter: i mean, we are in fascinating times in the united kingdom. theresa may is in power, but especially powerless. she's not able to get enough to support her deal. historic margins, 230 votes, the last time we saw a margin like that was 1924. but she's handling on despite that no confidence vote tabled by jeremy corbyn who himself wants to be prime minister. she said she'll be addressing them as a parliament across different parties, seeing what she can get, sort of consensus with them, going to brussels, going back to the european union to negotiate with them to see
what she can put on the table next week. that no confidence vote will take place at 7:00 p.m. tonight. but she is expected to survive. the numbers aren't there for jeremy corbyn. however, the labor party said they will continue tabling the no confidence vote. if theresa may loses a no confident vote that could trig a new prime minister or a new ruling party. all of this does not change the calculations, though, on the brexit itself, which we're barreling towards 72 days towards that march 29th deadline where the uk could crash out of the european union without a deal. that matters a lot not only to people living here, to european citizens who live here, are but also businesses who have been frozen in time. they can't plan for the future. and all they want is just some clarity on what's going to happen, dave. >> original in 2016, the exit votes were about 1 million plus. is there any talk of a new referendum? >> reporter: there is some talk of a new referendum but may said
as long as she's in power, there will not be a second referendum. it causes people to doubt the british democracy, because everybody had their say in 2016. what is the point of coming back two years later and do another referendum. however, others in parliament have been pushing for a second referendum. especially members of the labor party and remainors, as they're called, in theresa may's own party. so far that does not seem to be a likely outcome. >> 72 days away from brexit. hadas gold live for us in london. two leading newspapers calling for congressman steve king to resign. the des moines editorial board writing, quote, he has lost even the potential to effectively represent his iowa constituents because of his abhorrent comments about white nationalism and white supremacy. and the sioux city general says if he cares deeply about citizens of the 4th, and we believe he does, king should do
what is in their best interests and step down from office. >> house voted 421 to 1 to approve a resolution rejecting white supremacy and white nationalist. king also voted for the resolution meant to criticize him. >> that ideology never shows up in my head. i don't know how it could possibly come out of my mouth. >> but it did come out of his mouth. he told "the new york times," quote, white nationalists, white supremacists, western civilization, how did that language become offensive? back home his iowa support for the congressman is mixed. >> all people are of equal value in the sight of god and our policies should reflect that. >> they're overreacting, you know, magnifying it a hundred times what it should be. >> i'm hoping they'll get him cleared out of office is what i really hope. >> nobody can just dismiss what the people voted for. >> and he's been overwhelmingly

welcome back to "early start." i'm dave briggs. >> i'm christine romans. it's day 26th, the longest shut down in government history. keep that little giggle in the back of your head. president trump's nominee for attorney general setting the tone in a confirmation hearing that had both parties mostly pleased. william barr breaking from the president and his aides on talking points, among them disagreeing with the president's claim that special counsel robert mueller is on a witch hunt. vowing that he will not allow mr. trump or his lawyers to correct or spin mueller's final report. >> barr also did his best to reassure senators he will allow mueller to finish his work. >> i am not going to do anything that i think is wrong. and i will not be bullied into doing anything i think is wrong by anybody. whether it be editorial boards, or congress or the president. i'm going to do what i think is right. >> barr also promised to quit if the president crossed the line.
>> if someone tried to stop a bona fide lawful investigation, to cover up wrongdoing, i would resign. >> he did hedge on one issue that could cause trouble with democrats. cnn's jessica schneider has more on that from washington. dave and christine, an anticipated contentious hearing was actually quite calm. with top democrat die nanne feinstein saying so far so good. and chris coons saying he's going to support the confirmation, and the reason may be the strong stance of robert mueller pointing to their 30-year friendship and vowing to protect the russia probe and make as much as he can about mueller's final report public. >> will you commit to providing mr. mueller with the resources are funds and time needed to complete this investigation? >> yes. >> will you commit to assuring
that special counsel mueller is not terminated without good cause, consistent with department regulations? >> absolutely. >> will you provide mueller's -- excuse me -- mueller's report to congress, not your rewrite or a summary? >> my objective and goal is to get as much as i can of the information to congress and the public. i don't know what -- at the end of the day, what will be releasable. >> barr did say that he won't fire mueller, saying it will take something egregious since he knows the type of investigator mueller is but in one issue that could potentially rankle democrats, barr was asked can a sitting president be indicted? >> for 40 years the position of the executive branch is you can't indict a sitting president. >> i'm asking you what your view is right now. >> you know, i actually haven't read those opinions in a long time. but i see no reason to change them. >> now, barr was also asked
several questions about presidential pardons. and while he did say it is within the president's power to pardon individuals, he stressed it's also possible that the president can abuse his power by issuing certain pardons. and barr also wouldn't rule out the possibility that mueller could subpoena the president. but overall, barr wanted the take away to be that he will be an independent attorney general more in the second round of hearing that starts this morning. >> jessica schneider, thank you for that. let's bring in cnn politics digital director zach wolf in washington. good morning. something that struck me about all of this, here's bill barr, talks about robert mueller, calls him bob. their wives are friends together. mueller went to weddings of both of the barrs' daughters. he broke with key issues he
won't call the investigation a witch hunt. i wonder if you're the president of the united states this morning, after watching that confirmation hearing yesterday, what are you thinking of your pick? >> well, i think maybe what you should be thinking is that you picked somebody who is going to get confirmed. who democrats are going to have a hard time opposing, who said a lot of the right things to congress. what you're probably potentially thinking if you're president trump and far be it for me to ever get inside of his mind, but what you may be thinking that you also found somebody who is also at least going to publicly pledge to be independent of you specifically, and that could be troubling for trump, because he's somebody who prizes loyalty above all other things. >> yes. trump insinuated he wants his own protector. it didn't sound like he was getting that quickly, zach. do you think any democrats vote for barr, if so, who are they? >> it certainly sounded like several of them. if dianne feinstein is saying so
far, so good, i think we're on a glide path. >> i thought finestein, durbin, coons and there could be those saying we're not all about the resistance. >> let's get to the shutdown. day 26 right now. all of us have been chronicling how this is affecting real people, the economy. listen to people affected by this have been telling us. >> he is earning his paycheck, but he's just not getting it. >> shut down is not just a washington, d.c. d.c. problem. it's affecting real people here in iowa. >> getting our pay stubs on thursday and seeing zero dollars is just very disheartening. it makes it hard to wake up and want to go to work. >> it's important that the people that maybe around owe affected by it, whether they don't have a government job or they've never received assistance, they need to see the faces of the people that it is affecting. >> zach, what for you
crystallizes the impact of it the most? >> you know what crystallizes it for me, they have tried so hard to inoculate the pentagon, the armed forces, the troops from the shutdown, but they missed the coast guard which officially stopped getting paid yesterday. and the coast guard commandant charles schultz tweeted, today, he said to his service members you'll not be receiving your regularly scheduled paycheck. to the best of my knowledge this marks the first time in our nation's history that servicemembers in a u.s. armed force have not been paid during a lapse in appropriations. that's an incredible thing. members of the armed forces are not getting paid. >> 41,000 under his command, thousands more in the reserves. zach, covering economies, other countries in positions of terrible weakness with terrible governments sometimes give ious
to their military and it's a sign of extreme weakness and vulnerabili vulnerability. this is the united states of america. i think that crystallizes it the most. >> let's turn to steve king. it appears the tides have turned against king. he had the two biggest newspapers in iowa, editorial boards, writing articles strongly condemning steve king and the things he's said. and then this resolution on the house floor that only one person voted against him. steve king even voted for this house resolution. some wonder if this the republicans' way of saying, look, we do not want racism to be any part of this party or supporters. some thing they're trying to cover up things the president has said in the past. here's what the president of the united states has said about steve king in the past. this is 2014. >> a special guy. a smart person with really the
right views on almost everything. and really have to compare notes. i want to see someone who is going to make a country great again which is basically the same thing as steve. >> now, i guess that depends on what the president means we agree own almost everything. what is that almost. what do you think finally turned republicans against steve king? >> well, i think in part, the difficulty they faced in the midterm elections. they've lost a lot of races. he only barely won in a very conservative district. so there's that, you know, that essence of needing to keep his seat at this point. and maybe they also want to send a message about racism. you know, i would point out, however, everyone has turned on steve king except for donald trump. president trump was not weighed in the way other members of his party have, and it's pretty clear, he's not going to. and that's notable, because, let's face it, he is the most
important republican right now. and they do what he says on pretty much everything as a matter of course. >> and he said that he hasn't been following that. it was on the same day that i think he was tweeting about jeff bezos and his marital issues. he's up on the news on some things but not on others. >> you can assume that white house reporters will continue to ask that question. president trump's economic advisers say the shutdown could cost more, chairman of the economic adviser kevin hassett now estimates the shutdown shaves quarterly growth by 0.13 percentage points each week it drags on. now, in dollars, standard & poor's forecast $1.2 billion a week in lost growth. how? well, workers don't get paid which means they don't spend. and that hurt contractors, retailers, landlords, auto sales, all the way down the line. jpmorgan chase ceo jamie dimon told supporters, the shut couldn't do reduce growth to
zero. growth was 1%, 2%, zero is a big change. if you think d.c. say mess, take a look at the chaos in the uk. >> the nos to the left, 432. >> prime minister theresa may's brexit deal crushed on tuesday by a record margin. a humiliating indictment of her plan to guide britain out of the european union. may faces another no confidence vote today. the british people facing an uncertain future this morning. let's go live to 10 downing street and bring in cnn's hadas gold. is there anything that parliament does agree on, other than they didn't like this deal? >> reporter: it doesn't seem as though there's much ground they can agree on, other than they don't like that deal. as you said, may suffered a crushing defeat to portions we have not seen at any other point in modern political british history. now, may will face that vote
tabled by the labor here jeremy corbyn. that vote will happen at 7:00 p.m. here in london. although theresa may is expected to survive that vote, if she does not, that could lead to a new general election. that could lead to a new prime minister and new ruling party. and completely different options for brexit. what theresa may is trying to do is keep her deal going forward. we'll see how that develops over the next few days. here are other options on the table that could happen. she could come back with a completely new deal. she could ask to extend that deal to march 29th to later in the year. she could herself call a snap general election to try to gain more seats to try to gain more people on her side. there's it's option of a second referendum, though theresa may has said they will not ask the people to come back and vote again on brexit, that option is still out there on the table. dave. >> 72 days away from that brexit with no deal, with economists fearing that could plunge the uk
into recession. hadas gold live in london, thank you. the white house wants to relax sanctions against three russian company that could be put on hold today. the senate will vote on a bill to block that move. the russians have ties to a kremlin ally. 11 republicans broke ranks in a procedural vote tuesday. they need two more. steven mnuchin is trying to convince republicans to oppose the bill. >> a 2-year-old in minnesota lucky to be alive after tumbling outside of a moving car, still strapped in her car seat. eee!
