tv   CNN Newsroom With Poppy Harlow  CNN  June 11, 2016 12:00pm-1:01pm PDT

12:00 pm must be gerry. hey... in means getting more from your car insurance with the all-powerful drivewise app. it's good to be in, good hands. you're live in the "cnn newsroom" on this saturday, i'm pamela brown in washington. nice to have you along. right now we're keeping an eye on pittsburgh, pennsylvania, that's where a donald trump friendly crowd is waiting for the man they're rallying around, the presumptive republican nominee. it's a venue that donald trump really likes, an airplane hangar frequently with his private jet in the background. when trump arrives and takes the podium, we'll bring that to you live. this week, something in the presidential race shifted. it's when it became
12:01 pm
officially/unofficially became a two-person contest. sanders by the way will not be campaigning this weekend. cnn's kristen holmes is at that pittsburgh airport hangar where donald trump is set to appear shortly. teddy schleifer is in park city, utah, where a former republican nominee tore into donald trump and not for the first time. teddy, we'll come to you in a minute. first to kristen. donald trump was in florida this morning. he's now headed to pittsburgh. which donald trump is speaking today, the scripted statesman or the free-wheeling, name-calling donald trump? what can we expect? >> there are no teleprompters here today. if his speech is anything like what he said in florida, we'll see trump unscripted. when he was in tampa, he went after hillary clinton and elizabeth warren before turning
12:02 pm
to members of his own party, calling mitt romney a, quote, stone cold loser. that's in response to romney's comments that the character of america would change under a trump presidency due to what he called, quote, trickle down racism. trump also warned republicans who weren't coming on board with the trump candidacy yet, saying that he -- they should be careful or else risk losing their re-election battle. here's what he had to say. >> i mean, i've had more opposition from the republican party than i do from the democrats. crazy. with that being said, i think it's coming together. i think it's coming together. don't forget, i'm an outsider. they're not used to it. they sign a pledge. they go into the rnc. they use all of their information because they signed the pledge. they took, i guess you could say, millions of dollars worth of free information, and then they lose and they don't honor
12:03 pm
the pledge. >> now, trump, of course, you know -- excuse me, a gop operative that i spoke to pushed back against trump's comments there saying that they just simply want him to unite the republican party, adding that for every two steps back, there seems to be about 1 1/2 steps back. so, you know, they are pushing back against those claims saying he is not getting more opposition from the gop than he is from the democrats. now today in pennsylvania, this will be his third trip to a battle ground state in the last 24 hours. these are his first visit to the swing state since he became the presumptive nominee. it's taking place just as hillary clinton is ramping up her same efforts in these swing states. she will be here in pittsburgh early in the week. pamela? >> all right. of course, it will be interesting to see if he addresses former republican nominee mitt romney who tore
12:04 pm
into him today. he's already tweeted at mitt romney criticizing him. what exactly did romney say? >> yes, mitt romney here was speaking to his yearly conference of about 300 fund-raisers, donors, allies, people who have been in the romney fold for a while. and romney pretty much not only tore into donald trump but also people who he kind of thought enabled his rise. he said of the current republican party, seeing this is breaking my heart. at times pretty emotional, he seemed to be beating back tears as he spoke on a stage before people who admire the man. he also had sharp words for fellow republican candidate, who mitt romney said did not adequately challenge trump during the primary season calling out ted cruz and john kasich in particular. this is a very emotional moment for governor romney. at times he seemed to be trying to implore them to change their mind, maybe act differently. this conference is not a, quote,
12:05 pm
unquote, never trump retreat. there are several people who are prominent fund-raisers, prominent supporters of the trump campaign. if they were looking for a signal from the man they respect tremendously, mitt romney today, he was pretty clear that he is obviously not helping out trump and he doesn't think that's the right path forward. >> all right. and we are just learning that donald trump's expected to retaliate against hillary clinton with a speech of his own. that's going to be on monday in manchester, new hampshire at 2:30 p.m. as of now. very interesting. we will be waiting for that anxiously. kristen holmes, teddy schleifer, thanks for bringing us that reporting. pennsylvania, new hampshire, florida, ohio, that's no accident. they are fierce battle ground states. we are waiting for donald trump to take that stage there in pittsburgh in a state that's not supported a republican for president in the past seven election cycles.
12:06 pm
trump strategists certainly know that. jeffrey lord is one of them. he is here now with bernard witman, a rebecca berg is a political reporter for real clear politics. jeffrey, on that note, let's start with you. we know donald trump is in pennsylvania. he's going to be speaking there any minute now. hillary clinton shows up there on tuesday. how does trump reverse the democrats' 28-year winning streak in that state and these other states that are traditionally blue? >> right. pamela, i have to say, not for nothing do they call pennsylvania a battleground state. i've been involved in pennsylvania presidential campaigns in pennsylvania, from the ground up. i remember very distinctly when the sort of moderate republican wing of the party said that ronald reagan should never be nominated because he would lose pennsylvania. they went with gerald ford and he lost pennsylvania and four years later they said the same thing. ronald reagan won it twice and
12:07 pm
then his heir, george h.w. bush won it a third time. it hasn't been won since. i would suggest donald trump is the first republican nominee since 1988, that has a real considerable chance of carrying pennsylvania. he's in exactly the right place today in pittsburgh, western pennsylvan pennsylvania, where the state is a bit more conservative. he'll be coming back here to where i live in harrisburg, central pennsylvania, and what we call in pennsylvania the "t" which goes from the middle of pennsylvania straight up to the new york border and left and right over to erie and wilkes-barre scranton. i'm sure he'll be doing that and hitting those suburban counties in philadelphia. traditionally, republicans become more moderate in recent years. i think certainly he'll be targeting that as well. it's a battle. there's no question about it. >> now we have another factor at play here, jeffrey lord. that's president obama campaigning on behalf of hillary clinton. >> right. >> he did well in 2012 in white counties, particularly in ohio,
12:08 pm
another battleground state. how much of a threat to you see him as? >> there's no question the president will play a role here. it's not often we've had popular presidents or reasonably popular presidents who can do anything. the president eisenhower was sort of kept sidelined in the nixon campaign. they later thought that was a mistake. president reagan went all out for george h.w. bush and it helped him. bill clinton was a bit of a drag on al gore because of his impeachment situation and the gore people were not too happy with him so they kept him out, which i think in retrospect was a mistake. george w. bush was not a help at all to john mccain. in this case, i think president obama can be a bit of a help here. he can also be a bit of a help to donald trump in the sense that if you're not an obama fan and there are people in pennsylvania who are not, he can energize those folks as well. >> all right, bernard, let's go to that. regardless of all of that, president obama does have high
12:09 pm
approval ratings. how effective do you think bernard president obama can be in transferring his popularity to clinton out on the trail considering her unfavorables are still pretty high? >> i think it's going to be extremely powerful out on the stump, because he is -- has highest approval rating he's had since his second inauguration. the base loves him. independent voters are starting to look at the president, compare him to donald trump and say you know what, maybe president obama actually hasn't been so bad after all. we have had years and years and years of economic expansion, not to the degree we need it but he remains very, very popular. i tell you, this election will come down as most elections do, to turnout. when you have half of donald trump supporters saying you know what, i'm going to have to hold my nose and come out and vote for him, turnout will be huge. the president is beloved by members across the democratic party, particularly key stwi constituents like african-americans, latinos, love the president. i expect to see him go all out.
12:10 pm
i was around in 2000, huge mistake for al gore not to use bill clinton. hillary will not make that mistake. >> okay. and rebecca, i want to talk to you about mitt romney's criticisms of donald trump. he really came out and doubled down on donald trump, saying he is unfit for office, that he's going to hurt america's values and america will never be the same if he's president. let's listen to sound from donald trump. >> when i heard he was going to run again and i was thinking about running, i let him know. i said, the guy is a stone cold loser. he choked and when you're a choker, you can never give a choker a second chance. it's too important. >> your reaction, rebecca? >> of course this rivalry, pamela, is nothing new. mitt romney is one of the most forceful rebukes during the republican primary of donald trump when he gave his speech,
12:11 pm
calling donald trump politics unbiased bigotry. he's been an outspoken critic for a long time now of donald trump. what makes mitt romney stand out from other republicans is that he has maintained his strong criticism of donald trump even as he's become the nominee. mitt romney is in a different position than many republicans. he's not currently in office. he's not a current leader of the party. he's a figure head but he doesn't have any sort of obligation to keep the senate, keep the house, any obligation, any constituents of any kind. it gives him a unique position to air his criticisms about those sorts of potential consequences you could see down the ballot in terms of fund-raising and getting out the vote for these republican candidates. it is interesting that he is keeping up pressure on republicans as we saw from his summit in utah, encouraging them to soften their support for donald trump or withdraw their support for donald trump. it's interesting that he's mounting this pressure cam pane because certainly none of these
12:12 pm
republicans who have endorsed donald trump and still are criticizing him, none of them are in a very easy political position here. they have responsibilities to continue to elect republicans down the ballot and, of course, they're under pressure from republican voters at the same time. it really lays bare some of the divisions in the republican party and these are not going away any time soon. >> what do you make, on the heels of what rebecca said, jeffrey, there are some republicans who say we're going to vote for trump come november but he's a racist and they condemn what he says, then you have others like john kasich who basically say, look, my values are not in line with his, i'm not going to vote for him. what do you make of that? >> i do think that divide is there. frankly, i think this is the surfacing of a divide again that has been there in one way or another for decades, going all the way back to thomas dewey in 1948 before any of us were
12:13 pm
around. >> for someone like a paul ryan to do that, that's not very typical of the party's leadership. >> well, i remember a time when president ford says that ronald reagan was an extremist and could never be elected president. there were plenty of republican establishment types that took that view of ronald reagan themselves. i have seen this before. i do think this is the time to pull together. it disturbs me. the romney thing, i must say, his father pulled the same stunt, if you will, in 1964 when he was governor of michigan and refused to endorse barry goldwater. he was the founding father, if you will, of the political version of conservatism and george romney went at him with a vengeance when he was the sitting governor of michigan, refused to campaign with him in the fall. mitt romney is following in his father's footsteps. this business about trickle-down bigotry and all this kind of thing, we can all recall in 2012 the tape that was made
12:14 pm
frequentfrequen secretly of mitt romney standing in a closed private room deriving 47% of americans who were never going to vote for him. 23 th if they were going to vote for president obama, aka what. that was flat out bigotry and it was wrong. >> the three of you will be back after the break. we'll talk about the speech we're now expecting to hear from donald trump on monday going after hillary clinton. stay right where you are. coming up, donald trump is hammering hillary clinton as we said, we're appointi -- for app major donor to a security board. we'll get those details. >> they all looked, where did this guy come from? he made a contribution of 250,000. all of a sudden he's on this important and vital board. this position dealt with tactical nuclear weapons and had
12:15 pm
top secret clearance. and he knew nothing about it.

12:18 pm
and right now as we speak, we are watching for donald trump to come out and speak any minute now in pittsburgh, pennsylvania. this is a state that's not voted republican in a presidential general election since 1988. a new hillary clinton ad mocks donald trump, trump university promotional ad. it claims to tell the true story about his defunct trump university. >> now you too can be a source of trump's wealth with trump university. follow these three easy steps. step one. >> sign up for trump university. >> step two, pay for trump university at the amazing price of everything you have. >> the instructions include encouraging people who couldn't afford the courses to pay for them with multiple credit cards.
12:19 pm
>> step three, there is no step three. you won't actually learn anything. it's that easy. >> and meanwhile, donald trump is slamming hillary clinton over some newly released state department e-mails from when she was still secretary of state. they reveal that a big-time clinton foundation donor wound up on a sensitive government intelligence advisory board and he didn't even seem to have much experience in that field. cnn investigative correspondent drew griffin has the details. >> i'm raj fernando, founder and ceo of chopper trading. >> reporter: raj fernando is a chicago-based stock trader. for a very short period of time he was an appointee to the u.s. estate department's international security advisory board. what qualifications did he have? apparently none. what he did have is big money
12:20 pm
ties to bill and hillary clinton. he has donated $1 million to $5 million to the clinton foundation. he donated to mrs. clinton's 2008 primary campaign and served as a bundler of large campaign donations for democrats. on the campaign trail today, donald trump called his appointment just another example of his crooked hillary campaign theme. >> she even appointed to the national security board someone with no national security experience, instead, he was a donor, a recent donor, to hillary clinton's campaign. >> reporter: it is clear raj fernando had no diplomatic experience or background in international security affairs which could explain why just one month after taking this photo during his very first meeting with the board, raj fernando was writing a letter to secretary clinton resigning. and e-mails just released show behind the scenes political panic was setting in as a state department official struggled to
12:21 pm
explain what this big donor to the clinton foundation was doing with top security clearance inside the state department. on august 15th, 2011, an e-mail from an abc news producer asks for fernando's qualifications. the follow-up e-mail shows state department officials scrambling to come up with an explanation. they discussed how the appointment came directly from hillary clinton's long-time aide and state department chief of staff, cheryl mills. the true answer is simply that cheryl mills added him, the state department official writes in an e-mail. he was added at their insistence. someone else writes, can we dig up a short paragraph about his distinguished career and a sentence about our selection and approval process? the next day, a senior adviser e-mails we must protect the secretary's name as well as the integrity of the
12:22 pm
board. through a colleague, cheryl mills chimes into the e-mail chain asking the state department to stall in its response to abc news for 24 hours. no real qualifications for fernando were ever sent. instead, the next day, august 17th, raj fernando suddenly resigns. >> happy friday. >> at the state department today, answers on why were hard to come by. >> if he was at all qualified, why did he resign so suddenly after abc news started asking questions? >> i mean, you'd have to ask him. >> reporter: drew griffin, cnn, atlanta. the clinton campaign is now responding to drew griffin's reporting saying this was an unpaid volunteer advisory board and one of several foreign policy focused organizations that he was involved with as the state department itself has said, the isab charter called for a diverse set of experiences for its members. that's all there is to it. i want to bring in our panel again to get your thoughts. bernard, naturally i'll start with you to get your thoughts.
12:23 pm
the clinton camp are seemingly downplaying this. at the same time, this could feed into the perception that hillary clinton was involved in shady business. does this review blunt hillary clinton's momentum she's garnered this past week? >> i don't think so at all. maybe he wasn't the best choice but many americans would be surprised to know how our ambassadors get picked. many of our ambassadors get chosen because they deliver a lot of money to the campaign. many people are chosen for all sorts of hundreds and hundreds of these advisory boors exist all across government. a lot of time people who donate money or raise money are appointed to the boards. the truth is, the board charter itself wants people from a diverse set of backgrounds, a different set of experiences. he obviously was cleared from a security standpoint. maybe it wasn't the best person to choice. ultimately when the hubbub came up, he didn't want to be an embarrassment, he said, i'm going to resign. beyond that, i don't think it's that relevant. >> i have to ask a follow-up.
12:24 pm
you see the e-mails where it appears that they're scrambling about how to respond to this abc producer. if they didn't think it was bad optics, why would they be doing that? >> why should the focus of the secretary of state's office be on an obscure board that no one ever heard of that doesn't really do a whole lot to be honest. >> it was more the donor, though, not the board. >> right. but what i'm saying is, it brings all this attention to the secretary of state's office over some obscure board, a guy was in a volunteer position. it wasn't paid. the easiest thing to do in a politician situation is end it. the guy said you know what, i don't want to be a distraction to the secretary of state's work, i'm going to resign quietly. >> jeffrey, your thoughts? >> yes, i mean be i think she has a problem with this. i think bernard is right, this story will last about 24 hours in the news cycle and we'll be on to something else. i think it adds, as a part of a larger mosaic that's a constant
12:25 pm
story from the clintons, all the way from whitewater to her conduct in the state department, you get constantly into these stories of interest peddling, contributions, that type of thing. donald trump will give a speech on monday. i have a feeling this will be, everything including the kitchen sink on this topic. and that is going to be a huge issue in a general sense in this election. >> and i want to go to you on that, rebecca. we are expecting trump top give a speech on monday. what do you think he needs to do, given that hillary clinton has had a lot of momentum this week, becoming the presumptive democratic nominee, garnering president obama's support, what kind of trump do you think we need to see on monday? is it the teleprompter trump or the free-wheeling trump? >> i think it's clear, pamela, we do and especially republicans, will be looking for the serious teleprompter trump. because over the past few weeks he had a five-week head start on
12:26 pm
hillary clinton going in and transitioning into the general election. and many republicans feel at this stage that he squandered that head start by wasting his time campaigning in states like california, that didn't really matter for him by starting various controversies that didn't have anything to do with trying to attack hillary clinton and define his own message, leading into the general election. and so, what he needs to do with this speech is what republicans have very publicly, including senator mitch mcconnell, been urging him to do. that's to focus, get on message and to start attacking hillary clinton, the democratic nominee for president. i think that's why we will see the teleprompter version of donald trump on monday, because he has points he needs to hit. when he's speaking off the cuff as we've seen, he doesn't really hit the points that he's needing to hit. we saw a preview of this in his speech to the freedom coalition meeting here in d.c. on friday. he started talking about the
12:27 pm
clinton's history of being corrupt, easily corruptible, influenced by money. i think we're going to -- using government to enrich themselves. i think we'll see a continuation of these themes in his speech on monday. >> the speech on monday is in the afternoon, new hampshire, 2:30 p.m. thank you so much. >> thanks, pamela. >> thanks, pamela. we're following new developments in the shooting death of pop singer christina grimmie. police say they identified the shooter and the cold-blooded killing was all planned. the latest on this investigation, up next. plus, trump supporters get ready for their man to take the stage in the battleground state of pennsylvania. of course we will bring that speech to you when it happens. you are live in the "cnn newsroom." so, live there. even if it's just for a night.

welcome back. we just learned that donald trump's plane has landed in the battle ground state of pennsylvania. we do expect him to take to the podium very shortly. we will be monitoring this for you. there is the trump plane. we see all of his supporters there raising their cell phones taking pictures. they're at an airplane hangar there in pennsylvania. that was moments ago. meantime, turning to a really disturbing story, police say the man who shot and killed pop singer christina grimmie traveled to her concert last
12:32 pm
night specifically to carry out the cold-blooded crime. video taken during grimmie's show revealed a happy and talented 22-year-old and what would be her final performance. ♪ >> just imagine shortly after leaving the stage right here, grimmie was shot dead while signing autographs for fans. the shooter then fatally shot himself after being tackled by her brother. cnn's boris sanchez has been following the investigation. he joins me right now from the venue of where the shooting occurred. what more do we know about this man, boris? >> right now we're working hard to find out more information about him. we don't have many details just yet. shortly, just a few moments ago we got a clarification from
12:33 pm
orlando police. earlier at a press briefing they told us the suspect was a 21-year-old man. they just clarified that to say he's a 27-year-old man. he's a little bit older than we thought. aside from them, it's unclear his motive as to why he did this. as you said, the belief is that he came here to orlando specifically to carry out this attack against christina grimmie, the 22-year-old youtube sensation with more than 3 million followers online. she was also obviously a finalist on "the voice" finishing in third place. she just finished performing, she was at a meet and greet signing autographs when this 27-year-old man approached her and opened fire. here's more details about what we know so far about the gunman from the orlando police chief. >> the suspect in this case is not from orlando. the suspect travelled to orlando, apparently, to commit this crime and then had plans to travel back to where he came from.
12:34 pm
what our detectives are doing right now, they're going through the suspect's cell phone and computer to see if they could find a motive for this crime. the suspect had two handguns on his person. he had two additional loaded magazines for those handguns and a large hunting knife. >> orlando police are commending christina's brother, marcus, as you said, parmalee, he tackled the suspect shortly after the shooting. they said he prevented other people from getting hurt. during that scuffle, police say it's apparent that the gunman turned the gun on himself, taking his own life. again, his motives are a mystery, initially on social media it was reported that he may be familiar to her family as they may have known each other. this afternoon, orlando police dispelling those rumors saying it's not clear there was any kind of relationship between the singer and the 27-year-old suspect. >> one thing we do know, according to orlando police, he
12:35 pm
acted alone. a lot more to learn about this man, boris sanchez, thank you. new revelations from inside the trial that has outraged america. the stanford student convicted of sexual assault claims he wasn't a party boy. but we'll tell you just what the prosecution revealed about his past in newly released documents and read you part of the letter written by brock turner's mom to the judge. the suv that dares to go beyond utility. this is the pursuit of perfection.
12:36 pm
12:37 pm
12:38 pm
welcome back. donald trump now getting off his plane there in pennsylvania as we speak. he's going to be speaking to a crowd there. he is in pittsburgh. we'll, of course, be monitoring this for you. we want to turn now to another story that's really gripped the entire country. we now know just how brock turner, the stanford student convicted of sexual assault was portrayed in court. a decent guy, small town in ohio. this was revealed in a copy of the statement brock turner gave to his probation officer.
12:39 pm
coming from a small town in ohio i had never really experienced celebrating or partying that involved alcohol. a statement that possibly led to his six-month jail sentence. but was it true? according to new court files, the answer is likely no. evidence he sent texts to friends that prosecutors say proves he was a drinker who partied regularly using marijuana and other drugs. joining me now, cnn's brynn gingras. cnn has obtained this letter written to the judge by brock's mom. tell us more about that and how the town is reacting to that and all of this. >> well, pamela, quite frankly, this is a town that seems to want to separate itself from the whole entire brock turner incident. oakwood, ohio is the town where brock turner was raised. this is where he went to high school and competed in sports. we talked to city officials, city employees, residents, neighbors of the turners and really everyone said because this incident happened halfway
12:40 pm
across the country, in california, there's really no up side into talking about oakwood, ohio or how it's affected this town in general. but it is turner's mother, carlene, who brought this town into her statement with the judge during that sentencing phase of the trial. i want to read you an excerpt of what she said. she writes there have been many references of brock being from a wealthy, privileged background and he thinks he is entitled. your honor, this could not be further from the truth. we do not come from money. rather the opposite. dan and i are a working middle-class couple with midwestern values. trust me when i say silicon valley, california, is vastly different from the suburbs of dayton, ohio. one woman who lived across the street from the turners where brock was raised she kind of said, this is how she feels. how he was raised, where he was raised has no bearing on her opinion of brock turner. what does matter is the fact that he committed a crime in her
12:41 pm
eyes and that is all. so that's what we're hear here in oakwood. pamela? >> brynn gingras, thank you so much. we'll continue to follow this story. coming up, we'll speak to the professor who kick started the effort to recall the presiding judge. watch cnn tuesday night at 9:00 eastern, ashleigh banfield and alisyn camerota are hosting a town hall on sexual assault. just ahead, the school valedictorian who made a bold statement during her graduation ceremony. how she felt moments after revealing her biggest secret. plus, trump supporters get ready for their man to take the stage in the battle ground state of pennsylvania. we'll bring you that speech when it happens. you are live in the "cnn newsroom." we'll be right back. hmmmmm...
