1:01 am
kind of missile and poses a military threat. this is "early start." i'm christine romans. >> good morning. i'm dave briggs. thursday, july 25th. 4 a.m. right here in new york and in puerto rico and that's where we begin this morning. breaking news overnight. puerto rico governor ricardo rossello announcing he will resign. that set off wild celebrations in the streets of san juan. the embattled governor releasing a video confirming he will step down on august 2nd. >> translator: despite having the mandate of the people who elected me democratically, today i feel that remaining in this position represents a difficulty to continue the success that's been reached. >> the capital has been jammed with protestors for days puerto ricans demanding he leave office over a series of leaked group
1:02 am
chats that included homophobic and sexist language and joked about hurricane maria victims. we get more this morning from raphael romo in san juan. >> reporter: david, christine, an explosion of joy, singing, shouting, dancing people here in old san juan after they learn governor ricardo rossello will be resigning his position effective august 2nd at 5:00 in the afternoon. you can see how people have been celebrating after they heard the news and the reality is that they have been here protesting on a daily basis for the last 12 days because they said they have lost all trust in their governor and the reality is that governor ricardo rossello didn't really have too many options. he was facing what would have been a very embarrassing impeachment process. he had already lost many members of his cabinet and it was becoming very difficult for him
1:03 am
to govern the island. in announcing his resignation he said he had dedicated all of his time in the governor's office to help the people of puerto rico especially when two hurricanes hit the island in 2017, that he had also worked for women's rights and also to improve the financial situation of the island, but the reality was that there was not a whole lot that the governor could do to convince these people that he should stay as governor of puerto rico. dan and christine, back to you. >> terrific reporting there. now to the nation's capitol and the mueller hearing. a lot of tense moments, but not much to change any minds. during robert mueller's appearance on capitol hill. a among all of the impeachment talk, political spin and legal battles the most important message was clear. russia interfered and the trump campaign did not refuse the help. moscow is still trying to influence american democracy and
1:04 am
americans should be aware and concerned. >> it wasn't a single attempt. they're doing it as we sit here and they expect to do it during the next campaign. i hope this does not become the new normal, but i fear it is. >> house democrats now plotting their next move. in a closed-door meeting last night they pressed leadership about impeachment. speaker nancy pelosi wants to let the legal battles play out. she is open to talks about impeachment, something she has resisted so far. >> you said there is no chance because republicans control the senate. is that still your concern. >> if we have a place for impeachment, that's the place we will have to go. the fact why i would like it to be a strong case is because i don't -- is based on the facts. the stronger our case is, the
1:05 am
worst the senate will look for just letting the president off the hook. >> cnn legal analyst says house democrats already have the information they need to move on impeachment if they choose. >> let's just say it, the book was better than the movie today, okay? it was better than the movie, but now we're putting form over substance. it was already there. all the information you would need to bring it to life, it's already in the actual report. the idea of kicking the can down the road to say, hey, will this be enough now? it's like a wizard of oz moment here, ladies and gentlemen. you already had the power to go home all along, congress. are you going to exercise it or not? >> that was good. hours of testimony mueller rarely took the bait from democrats, but he did have some damaging things to say about president trump. he reiterated, contrary to the president's claims, mr. trump was never exonerated. >> the report did not conclude
1:06 am
that he did not commit obstruction of justice, is that correct? >> that is correct. >> and what about total exoneration, did you actually totally exonerate the president? >> no. >> mueller essentially said the president lied in some of his written answers. >> director mueller, isn't it fair to say that the president's written answers were not only inadequate and incomplete because he didn't answer many of your questions but where his answers showed he wasn't always truthful? >> there -- i would say generally. >> the special counsel also objected to the candidate trump welcoming help from wikileaks. >> this wikileaks is like a treasure trove, donald trump october 31st, 2016. boy, i love reading those wikileaks. donald trump, november 4th, 2016. how do you react to that? >> well, it's probably --
1:07 am
problematic is an understatement. >> for weeks democrats argued that having mueller testify on camera would bring his dry, 448 page report to life. instead, there was an awful lot of this. >> i direct you to the report. i rely on the report. i send you back to the report. i am not going to get into that. i can't get into discussions on that. i can't get into it. >> mueller deferred or declined to answer questions 206 times. that performance had president trump declaring victory. >> i think robert mueller did a horrible job, both today and with respect to the investigation. the democrats lost so big today. their party is in shambles right now. they are a mess. this was a devastating day for the democrats.
1:08 am
>> inside politics anchor john king explains why trump was so confident. >> i think he's happy today because you do not have that viral movie trailer moment of robert mueller looking directly into a camera and saying something in 15 or 20 seconds that the democrats can spread around the world about there's a case for you to impeach or i would have indicted if i could have but i was stuck. he didn't say any of those things. >> cnn's marshal cohen joining us live from washington. nobody knows the russia investigation better. >> yeah. >> good to see you on this day, sir. >> good morning. >> look, obviously the book is often better than the movie, as christine romans often tells me. they didn't need a blockbuster movie, marshal. they simply needed an audio book. why was robert mueller unwilling to provide that? >> we've been wondering that basically since his very first answer yesterday. you take a look at his style, his record, the culture clash there that was on the stage,
1:09 am
right? where you've got someone from a different generation with an honor code and the justice department told him, don't talk about this. don't talk about that, and he basically said, okay. whatever you want. even though time and time again he refused to answer questions that he could have answered. there were times when he said i'm not going to tell you. i'm not going to say that. then we just opened up the report and found the information right in there. so it's not like there was a legal basis to some of this. i think a lot of this comes down to his style and his unwillingness to become that made for tv political campaign ad. >> he was unwilling to read his own report as ted lu tried to press him, simply read one sentence. it wasn't just style, it was substance. he did not want to provide anything. >> this is a guy who -- i mean, his 88 previous appearances, you know, on capitol hill, we had a mashup of them yesterday. he's not the kind of guy who
1:10 am
falls for the optics. he just isn't. that's not his style, right? >> it's sort of the opposite of the grandstander. we saw a lot of grandstanding in hearings -- >> yeah. >> -- over the years about 2016 and 2016 candidates. it was -- i don't know exactly grandstander, but that was yesterday. and also at times he seemed frankly a bit unfamiliar with his 448 page report. his aides were routinely pointing him in the right direction of what to look at. he asked lawmakers to repeat their questions many, many times throughout the day and he didn't seem to have 2that, you know, ability to have that recall of obscure things in the report that you generally might expect from the author of the report. >> yes. that's what i thought stood out. you have more in depth knowledge of these 448 pages than seemingly the author of this report, but let's move onto the impact of this. and is the impeachment movement
1:11 am
dead? everyone seemingly said, yes, it has to be dead. but jackie spear said this from california late last night. >> i think that the speaker is softening to the idea of an impeachment inquiry to begin. i don't know that the numbers of members are at a critical mass yet, but i do think it's growing. >> growing? did they see a different hearing than the rest of the country? >> i'm not sure that a single lawmaker came out in support. i haven't totally been keeping track of all of the numbers, but i haven't -- if you were looking for a flood gate opening, that didn't happen. democrats by the latest count, they still need to double and then some the number of democrats who support impeachment, forget about the republicans. they have a long, long way to go on that front, but maybe in speaker pelosi's eyes this was
1:12 am
more of a box checking procedure. >> sure. >> you can't possibly support impeachment before you hear from the special counsel even though he gave us somewhat lackluster and shaky performance at times. maybe for the speaker it was just a box checked and now they can move onto the next fight and they have more fights. >> there's an election. if democrats feel they have a constitutional reason to impeach trump if they believe that he obstructed justice, you're rn g i running out of time, right? because you've got an election. or you let the people sbeek what they think about the process. >> that's the james comey position. he always said, don't impeach him. beat him at the ballot box. there's probably a lot of democrats that think you can do both, frankly. the republicans tried to impeac bill clinton in 1998, 1999 -- >> also in a very good economy. >> in a great economy and then the republicans won the
1:13 am
presidency a year later. they didn't suffer any consequences for that. they're probably saying there is damning evidence in the report, it's true, but the optics didn't really tell you that yesterday. >> let's get to the substance when you come back in about 20 minutes and ask you about ongoing russian interference. perhaps the most important part of yesterday's hearings. marshall, see you in just a bit. american rapper asap rocky is being charged with assault. he will remain in custody until the trial. various celebrities and president trump have called for his release. the president told sweden's prime minister he would personally vouch for the rapper's bail or an alternative. a spokesman was told the swedish government will not try to influence the judicial process.
1:14 am
by the way, sweden has no bail system. an historic heat wave coming up. we'll talk about it in europe. triple digit numbers even threatening the fire roof of the notre dame cathedral. since my dvt blood clot
1:15 am
i was thinking... could there be another around the corner? or could it turn out differently? i wanted to help protect myself. my doctor recommended eliquis. eliquis is proven to treat and help prevent another dvt or pe blood clot...
1:16 am
almost 98 percent of patients on eliquis didn't experience another. ...and eliquis has significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. eliquis is fda approved and has both. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. what's around the corner could be surprising. ask your doctor about eliquis.

1:19 am
will ripley is tracking the latest developments live. will? >> reporter: christine, this is the latest chapter in what we've seen in the selective escalations trying to get president trump's attention. back in may north korea launched a couple of short range missiles. now they've launched a couple more, what south korea believes are a new short range missile. one traveled 300 miles and one traveled 500 miles. these could carry nuclear warheads, pose a threat to tens of thousands of people in south korea. this missile test always a signal, of course, from kim jong-un comes after north korea released these photos of kim inspecting a missile capable submarine. all of this is essentially north korea trying to let the united states know what could happen if
1:20 am
they don't get what they want, which is sanctions release sooner rather than later. the problem is in any communication has ground to a halt. working all discussions haven't resumed and the north koreans are not expected to work with mike pompeo next week. they were hoping talks would resume. >> will ripley for us this morning. thanks so much, will. relentless, record-breaking heat is gripping europe. widespread warnings. temperatures expected to top 102 degrees fahrenheit in the u.k. the hottest temperature was

1:32 am
people here there old san juan after they learn governor ricardo rossello will be resigning his position effective august 2nd at 5:00 in the afternoon. you can see how people have been celebrating after they heard the news and the reality is that they have been here protesting on a daily basis for the last 12 days because they said they have lost all trust in their governor. the reality is that governor ricardo rossello didn't really have too many options. he was facing what would have been a very embarrassing impeachment process. he had already lost many members of his cabinet and it was becoming very difficult for him to govern the island. in announcing his resignation he said that he had dedicated all his time in the governor's office to help the people of puerto rico especially when two hurricanes hit the island in

1:34 am
normal but i fear it is. >> house democrats now plotting their next move. in a closed-door meeting they pressed leadership about impeachment. speaker nancy pelosi wants to let the legal battles play out but she says she's open to more detailed talks about impeachment. something she's resisted thus far. >> you have long said that there's no point in moving forward with impeachment inquiry because republicans controlled the senate. it's going to die in the senate. is that no longer your chief concern? >> i have never long said that. if we have a case for impeachment, that's the place we will have to go. the fact that -- why i'd like it to be a strong case is because i don't -- it's based on the facts. the stronger our case is, the worse the senate will look for just letting the president off the hook. >> cnn legal analyst laura coates said house democrats already have the information they need to move on impeachment if they choose. >> let's just say it, the book
1:35 am
was better than the movie today, we all agree. now we're putting form over substance. it was already there. all the information you would need to actually bring it to life, it's already in the actual report. the idea of kicking the can down the road to say, hey, will this be enough now? it's like a wizard of oz moment here, ladies and gentlemen. you already had the power to go home all along, congress. are you going to exercise it or are you not? >> in his hours of testimony, mueller rarely took the bait from democrats. he did have some damaging things to say about trump. he reiterated, contrary to the president's claims, mr. trump was never exonerated. >> the report did not conclude that he did not commit obstruction of justice, is that correct? >> that is correct. >> and what about total exoneration, did you actually totally exonerate the president? >> no. >> mueller essentially said the president lied in some of his written answers.

1:37 am
i would send you back to the report. i can't beyond what's in the report. i am not going to get into that. i can't get into discussions on that. i can't get into it. >> mueller deferred or declined to answer questions 206 times. that performance had president trump declaring victory. >> i think robert mueller did so bad. they lost so big today. their party is in shambles right now. this was a dem more administrating day. >> i think he's happy today because you do not have that viral movie trailer moment of robert mueller looking directly into a camera and saying something in 15 or 20 seconds that the democrats can spread around the world about there's a case for you to impeach or i
1:38 am
would have indicted if i could have but i was stuck. he didn't say any of those things. >> john king there. cnn's marshal cohen joining us. thanks for joining us. you are our brain trust. every little development in the russia probe. what did you hear? what is your headline, marshall? >> well, it was exactly what was in the report, which was damning for president trump. the trump campaign expected help from the russians, welcomed help from the russians and didn't tell the fbi. that's the collusion/conspiracy part. on obstruction of justice, there were several episodes of obstruction of justice but for several reasons a sitting president couldn't be indicted. you wouldn't have gotten that evidence if you watched the 7 hours of impeachment. some of the questions weren't on
1:39 am
the money and the guy answering the questions didn't want to be there. don't forget that he told us two months ago, the report is my testimony. >> right. >> if you subpoena me, i'll show up, but he didn't want to be there. >> democrats wanted him to bring that report to life. he was not playing ball? i don't know. to even read his own words after being pressed by ted lu. >> i can understand that. there's a high likelihood if he reads aloud those parts, you might see that cut into 30-second tv ads for democrats across the country or by interest groups who were trying to do that. at the same time, it's your own report. those are your own words. it's already out there. you know, it's sort of trying to
1:40 am
split the baby in a very, very frustrating fashion. >> it's fascinating though because he was clear yesterday and in the report but he was clear that he did not exonerate the president. >> yes. >> he was clear that russia was not a hoax. the russia interference in the election was not a hoax and it is going on again and every american should know about that. but where does that all lead us in the impeachment process here? are we one step further to embarking on impeachment or does this send us back? there's nothing new yesterday. here's what congresswoman jackie spire said yesterday. >> i think that the speaker is softening to the idea of an impeachment inquiry to begin. i don't know that the numbers of members are at a critical mass yet, but i do think it's growing. >> growing. was there anything -- i mean,
1:41 am
jackie spears says the numbers were growing. what was in that testimony yesterday that would bring new people on board? >> maybe in some of their closed doors meeting there was some growth there, but i don't think the numbers budged yesterday. they're still very far behind what they need to be able to pass an impeachment on a party line vote. but, look, you know, they didn't get what they wanted. they wanted a show. they wanted viral moments, something that was going to get the attention of people that hadn't 5iihad wasn't paying attention. >> this will be lit at this gated in 2020. when he got bob mueller to say, could you charge president trump with a crime after the term is up? he said, yes.
1:42 am
is there enough being done to stop it and why did that feel like a partisan perspective. they were laying the foundation for their medaling. come back today, it's the year before the election. robert mueller is sitting in that chair this time around us telling us, pay attention. if some of the democratic area, they've said if the russians or anybody puts out hacked material on my opponent, i will not use it. donald trump, the president, has not said yet that he would do that. in fact, he seemed in recent interviews to invite that kind of help and yesterday robert mueller weighed in, which is very rare for him because he's barely issued an ethical program, that's not -- that's
1:43 am
not the right thing to do. it's beyond problematic were his words. >> so much wars we worry about. there are things that people spread on facebook and social media. marshal, so nice to see you. thank you for your analysis. >> thank you. 43 minutes past the hour. the president's plan to force asylum seekers to apply outside the u.s., that's been put on hold by a federal judge. do you want me to go first or do you want to go first, brea?

across the united states so there's no question they've limited competition. there's areas where they've really hurt small businesses. >> so lawmakers have increasingly focused on complaints of anti-competitive behavior of amazon, apple, facebook, google. the doj could call for these companies to be broken up. a spokesperson for amazon told the washington post small businesses are thriving with amazon and that independent sellers, small businesses, make up 58% of sales on amazon. mnuchin told the doj that the probe is the right thing to do and he looks forward to attorney general william barr's recommendation to the president. president trump looking at vetoing three bills. this was a symbolic showing of bipartisan opposition to the administration's relationship with saudi arabia following the killing of journalist jamal
