tv Early Start with Christine Romans and Dave Briggs CNN July 31, 2018 2:00am-2:59am PDT
right now with a report that north korea could be working on new missiles. new revelations overnight that north korea could be building new missiles. the work picking up after the singapore summit. we're live in seoul. paul manafort's trial begins today on financial crimes. a lot riding on the case against the president's one-time campaign chief. and the carr fire in california now chewing up over 100,000 acres. 19 people remain missing in one of the most destructive fires in state history. it looks like triple digit temperatures for the next five days for the folks out there in california. good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm dave briggs. >> i'm laura jarrett in for christine romans. there are new signs that north
korea could be building more missiles. "the washington post" reporting that satellite evidence is showing that there is work on intercontinental ballistic missiles in the suburb of pyongyang. if true, the work of the icbms would be a serious blow to the diplomatic efforts between president trump and kim jong-un. for the latest, let's bring in paula hancocks in seoul. paula. >> reporter: laura, we are hearing from a u.s. official that the report from "the washington post" is consistent with what is already publicly known. that kim jong-un has not made a full promise to denuclearization after the summit with president trump. he said he would work toward denuclearization. now the same u.s. official when talking about the liquid fueled icbms saying it is not a big worry because it takes a long
time to put the missile together. u.s. agencies would have advanced warning if this were going ahead. we heard from the u.s. secretary of state mike pompeo last week at the senate hearing saying north korea continues to produce fissile material and even agencies believe kim jong-un is continuing with the production and with those programs. the big challenge for the u.s. at this point according to one u.s. official is to find out exactly what north korea has ahead of time so when kim jong-un comes up with an inventory of the activity that they have with the nuclear missile arsenal they claim they will give them up to make sure there is nothing in reserve. make sure that is transparent as many north koreans have said from the past they have not been transparent and kept many of the other facilities secret away from the united states. laura.
>> we will watch the situation very closely. paula, thank you for the report. jury selection begins later this morning in the federal trial of the former trump campaign paul manafort for alleged financial crimes. the first test for special counsel robert mueller and his prosecutors although russia is not the center of the trial. we have more from evan perez from washington. >> reporter: dave and laura, paul manafort, the former campaign chairman, is going on trial in virginia on federal tax and bank fraud charges. this is the first trial to come from robert mueller's investigation. don't expect the trial to be about russia or collusion or president trump. prosecutors and attorneys plan to stick closely to the issues in the charges which have to do with the government's accusations that manafort used secret foreign bank accounts to hide millions of dollars he earned working for the ukrainian government and failed to report it to the irs.
manafort has pleaded not guilty to the charges. in the hours before jury selection begins, the two sides are squaring off over what evidence the jury will be allowed to see. manafort's lawyers asked the judge to block the government from seeing 50 pieces of evidence. including e-mails and photos that they say are irrelevant and prejudicial. the prosecutors say the evidence is important to show how manafort earned $60 million working as a political consultant for the ukrainian government. manafort faces another trial later this year on charges from washington, d.c. dave and laura. a white house official confirming the obvious. the president's press team is not coordinating with rudy giuliani concerning the legal team. that was apparent on monday when giuliani made a bizarre series of claims on "new day." including he is not sure collusion with russia is even a
crime. for context, the criminal code doesn't use the word collusion, but it could include crimes like conspiracy. >> giuliani suggested before the meeting in 2016 at trump tower, several aides met for a pre-meeting to discuss the strategy. >> lannie said there was a meeting two days before with donald junior and jared and manafort and two others. gates and one more person. >> it is important to know, rick gates, the right-hand man to paul manafort, is cooperating with the robert mueller investigation. after requests for clarity, rudy giuliani later said the meeting never happened and insists his description came from questions by reporters. speaking overnight, giuliani appeared to blame the confusion on "the new york times"
reporters who suggested he spin a potentially damaging story. the former head of the human resources of fema accused of trading sex for jobs. cnn reviewed a summary of the preliminary investigation. finds cory coleman experienced relationships with female subordinates. he pressured the women and demoted them if they tried to deny him. the first accusation dates 2015. coleman resigned when approached for an interview. his name does not actually appear in the summary, but a source confirms he is the subject of the report. coleman resigned when they approved him for the interview. the allegations are deeply disturbing. cnn has been unable to reach coleman for comment. a federal court in california ordering broad changes in how the government detains and treats migrant children in the facilities. it is requiring the government to stop imposing conditions that delay releasing minors to parents or relatives. the judge said the government violated a 1997 settlement that
dictates how refugee children are to be treated in the system. the justice department declined to comment. progress is slow, but it is being made as crews battle the carr fire raging in northern california. the monster blaze has consumed more than 103,000 acres and it is 23% contained. six people have died and 19 are missing. more than 1,100 structures burned making it the seventh most destructive fire in california history. one girl doing what she can to help. chelsea recording her daughter handing out burritos to firefighters working the carr fire. we get more from nick watt in redding, california. >> reporter: dave and laura, firefighters fighting this fire have described it as chaotic and unpredictable. they talk about how a gust of wind at any moment can cause a
problem. this fire started more than a week ago. this fire was under control for a few days until the weather conditions turned. temperatures soared and humidity dropped. this fire using fuel with the dead vegetation just spread through the area. it is interesting to note that of the top 12 biggest fires in california, 7 of them have taken place since 2015. the personal cost here has been huge. six people have been killed. two firefighters. what will happen next with the fire? well, the forecast is for 100 degree temperatures for the rest of the week and no rain in that forecast and that could make this fire tricky to get ahold of. back to you. >> awful news. thank you, nick watt. fires in oregon with 1,000 evacuations there. both states in deep trouble as the heat continues.

any time they want to and i don't do that from strength or from weakness. i think it is an appropriate thing to do. >> do you have pre-conditions for that meeting? >> no. they want to meet, i'll meet. >> president trump's words on a sharp departures from the words he used last week. but secretary of state mike pompeo did seem to layout conditions moments later. >> demonstrate a commitment to how they treat their own people and agree it is worthwhile to
enter into a nuclear agreement to prevent proliferation, then the president said he is prepared to sit down and have a conversation with them. >> president trump has been a harsh critic of tehran with the administration pursuing a strategy many see as essentially regime change. "the new york times" bureau chief is live in tehran. thomas, thank you for joining us. >> reporter: thanks for having me. >> please give us your latest reporting on what is going on there. >> reporter: well, of course, iranians are now in a tough position because president trump has so openly invited them to talks. they knew already through diplomatic channels and remarks made by donald trump that the united states is ready to sit down with the iranians which is old american policy.
obama tried to do the same thing. bill clinton tried to do the same thing. iranians never wanted to do this because they are ideologically against the united states. they had the nuclear talks where they sat down with john kerry. now donald trump laid down the cards and said i'm ready to sit down with you guys without pre-conditions. of course, secretary pompeo has made conditions. you can be sure iranians are looking at donald trump and it poses the question are they ready to sit down? iran has a long history of talking secretly to the united states. they don't mind to talk to america behind closed doors to make deals as long as for the greater public this doesn't happen. if president trump has a meeting in mind between him and president rouhani, that will be hard ideologically to swallow for the iranians. at the same time, more and more voices here in iran will say look, our government has to make
amends. the economic situation in iran is going fastly do quickly down. the push for iran's leaders to actually sit down with donald trump, a man they really dislike, is really great. >> thomas, thank you for joining us there in iran. time for an early start on your money. the trump administration looking to cut another $100 billion in taxes mainly for rich americans according to "the new york times." steve mnuchin told the times at the g20 summit that his department was considering overhauling how the capital gains tax is calculated to allow taxpayers to adjust the asset like the home or shares of stock for inflation when selling. mnuchin said the treasury department is considering bypassing congress to make the tax cut happen. analysis shows that over 97% of the benefits would go to the top
10% of income earners in the united states. senate republicans rejecting president trump's threat to shutdown the government in september if he doesn't get his funding for his border wall. at least for now. >> finish up the set of appropriate measures. we have been considering for several days and take four more big steps toward our goal of completing a remember appropriations process and funding the government in a timely and orderly manner. >> the president wants to shutdown the government, you know, that's his prerogative. i think it would be a mistake and i don't think it will be necessary. >> even members of the president's own party are learning to shrug off or simply ignore his sporadic impulses. >> still the president persists reiterating the shutdown threat on monday. >> after many, many years of talk within the united states, i would have no problem doing a shutdown. it's time we had proper border
security. >> according to a white house aide, chief of staff john kelly trying to soothe anxious members of the white house legislative affairs office. kelly saying the president is still on board with the agreement struck with republican leadership at the meeting that did not include threats of a government shutdown before the midterms. on september 11th, president trump gets the full bob woodward. the investigative reporter releases "fear." his first book on the trump administration. the book is based on memos and documents and notes, including some handwritten by the president himself. a source tells cnn that woodward went back to shoe-leather reporting of the watergate days knocking on doors at night and talking to officials to talk to him all on tape. >> you know, woodward, associate

lebron sat down with don lemon. he said he would never sit down across from donald trump and have a conversation with him because he thinks the president is using sports to divide the country. >> he is dividing us and what i noticed over the last few months that he has used sports to divide us and that's something that i can't relate to because i know that sport was the first time i was around someone white. i got an opportunity to see them and learn about them. they got the opportunity to learn about me. we became very good friends. i thought this is all because of sports. sports has never been something to divide people. it is something that brings someone together. >> you can see more at cnn.com. lebron giving cnn a tour of the public school for at-risk kids. the first class is comprised of third and fourth graders. it will expand until it is one

california now chewing up over 100,000 acres. 19 people remain missing in one of the most destructive fires in state history. welcome back to "early start." i'm laura jarrett. >> i'm dave briggs. 100 degree temperatures for redding, california. we will have an update for you straight ahead. we start with politics. signs that north korea could be building more missiles. "the washington post" reporting satellite images show that work is under way on the new intercontinental ballistic missiles in the suburb of pyongyang. if true, the work of the icbms would be a serious blow to the diplomatic efforts between president trump and kim jong-un. for the latest, let's bring in paula hancocks in seoul. six weeks ago, you remember the president tweeting there is no longer a threat from north
korea. what about these claims, paula? >> reporter: dave, even then it was thought that north korea observers it was premature. "the washington post" report saying one or two liquid fuel icbms are currently being built in north korea. one official tells cnn this is consistent with what is known. kim jong-un is not fully agreed to denuclearization after the summit with president trump. he agreed to work toward denuclearization. also, we understand from the u.s. official, that washington is not too worried about the liquid fuel icbms for the reason they take so long to put together. that the u.s. intelligence agencies would have advance warning. clearly the challenge at this point according to the u.s. official for the trump administration is to find out
exactly what the north koreans have and what is in the program ahead of kim jong-un giving inconvenieventory and potentialg he would give that up. many experts saying they are likely to try to hide some of their facilities. are there secret facilities? will they admit to the arsenal they have here? this is an issue that previous administrations have come up against and now this is an issue for the trauump administration well. dave. >> curious how the president tweets about this in the days ahead. paula, thank you. a white house official now confirming what is plainly obvious. the president's press team is not coordinating with rudy giuliani concerning his comments on behalf of mr. trump's legal team. that was apparent monday when giuliani went on to make a series of bizarre claims on "new day" including the fact that he is not sure that collusion with
russia is even a crime. now, for context, the criminal code does not use the word collusion. that is true. it is also generally understood that as a broad term, that could include more specific crimes like conspiracy. >> giuliani also suggested before the trump tower meeting with the russians in 2016, several trump aides met for a pre-meeting to discuss strategy. >> lannie said there was a meeting two days before with donald junior and jared and manafort and two others. gates and one more person. >> it is important to know, rick gates, the right-hand man to paul manafort, is cooperating with special counsel robert mueller's investigation. after requests for clarity, rudy giuliani later said the meeting never happened and insists his description came from questions by reporters. speaking overnight, giuliani appeared to blame the confusion
on the new york times reporters who compelled him to potentially spin a damaging story. got that? >> no. >> let's bring in phil wegmann. phil, good morning. what is going on with rudy giuliani right now? the confusion is everywhere. he was all over the place yesterday. i want to let you listen to just a little bit of what the folks over at fox news had to say. political editor had this to say about it and we will come back and talk about it. >> it became apparent that as giuliani was listening, he said egad. i made a mess. i better clear it up. line one, long time viewer, first time caller. rudy from new york. what do you have to say? no ditto today. >> i tend to agree with mr. hume on this which is i do not think
this is strategic chaos. i think this is just plain chaos. >> so, phil, is chris right about this? is this just chaos? >> it seems to fit the brand of the administration when it comes to crisis communications. giuliani is out in front of the cameras and it is clear he is not coordinating with sarah sanders or anybody else in the white house. this is creating more problems than fixing. the main take away, the main policy take away was that the president's laura degrwyer agre the president. it is no longer that trump did not collude with the russians, but even if trump did collude, it is no longer a crime. that is something the president has been saying since december. something he has been able to get away with putting it out there. the difference is now giuliani is saying or codifying that
sentiment especially with the foreign powers who may be interested in running a similar play in 2018 or 2020. >> my take away is this tap of the head apparend hit on the ta did not come up with good strategy for giuliani. president trump reiterated the claim along side the prime minister of italy saying if he doesn't get that big beautiful wall, he is prepared to do a shutdown. listen. >> after many, many years of talk within the united states, i would have no problem doing a shutdown. it's time we had proper border security. >> when republican leadership was asked about this, they collectively said meh. john thune said i hope it is a negotiating tactic. i recognize the look of the republican leadership. it is one my kids give me when i make a completely hollow threat. what do you make of the reaction
of republicans based on the threat of the shutdown? >> on one hand it is understandable. donald trump from the very beginning said he wants the border wall. that is his main brand. republicans have not delivered on. that on the other hand, donald trump is in interesting territory. what he is in danger of doing is implying to his base. those people in the house and senate cannot give me a border walla as it is. why show up to vote. president trump has tax cuts. he will have a second supreme court justice. it is a head scratcher as to why he would bring up the shutdown threat rather than talk about actual accomplishments. >> phil, does president trump care if republicans lose the house in november? an interesting editorial in "the wall street journal" that suggests he may be okay with a
nancy pelosi. goes on to say, mr. trump may not welcome a democratic house, but not fear it as long as republicans keep the senate. what is your take? does he care? >> president trump has had a hard enough life as it is when republicans are control of the house. he will not enjoy life when there are all sorts of talks of impeach. with people in the house -- impeachment with people in the house probing into his personal business. trump is more transactional than ideological. he may survive if democrats take over the house. it is a different ball game if they do. let's not kid ourselves. life is more comfortable for him as long as a republican is banging the gavel. >> i'll give you the most influential donors on the right. koch brothers are not making it easy. they are prepared to spend millions, but not giving it all to republicans.
not backing the republican running against heitkamp in that senate race. how significant is that break? based on the fact that republicans have forgotten conservative financial principles. >> this is huge. it shows that the koch brothers are more interested in principled wins than trump tribalism. they will back candidates who are in support of free trade and support of welcoming immigration policy. i think what this really does is this takes the wind out of the sails from a lot of people on the left who want to make the koch brothers the political boogie men. this is more about policy than partisan wins. that is why we see a lot of feathers ruffled on the right with this announcement. >> there are still conservatives concerned about massive deficits. phil, good to see you. thank you.
