tv   Early Start with Christine Romans and Dave Briggs  CNN  October 25, 2018 2:00am-2:59am PDT

2:00 am
>> president trump pointing the finger hours after the assassination attempts on several of his favorite political targets and us here at cnn. it is being treated as domestic terror. and a manhunt is under way. rough day for the markets. dow and s&p 500 erasing all gains for the year. the nasdaq in correction territory. and no winner in last night's powerball. the jackpot now a cool $750 million. most people spent more time thinking about the lottery than the stock market. good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm dave briggs. after a difficult day, it is thursday, october 25th. 5:00 a.m. in the east. the big question this morning is is it over? the series of mail bombs sent to prominent democrats and here to cnn in new york. none exploded. a source tells cnn the fbi is handling the investigation as domestic terrorism.
2:01 am
the bureau says more devices may have been mailed to other locations. the new york police commissioner echoing that concern. >> this is open-ended. we have to operate under the assumption there are more out there. >> law enforcement trying to track down a package addressed to former vice president joe biden. that packaged considered suspicious because of similarities to others. it was misaddressed and sent back to the same address printed on the other packages. the florida office of congress member debbie wasserman schultz. on monday, a package sent to george soros. >> and late tuesday, a pipe bomb package was sent to bill and hillary clinton at their new york home. wednesday's explosives on the way to the obamas d.c. home. and then maxine waters' with a device at the mail facility. and a package for john brennan
2:02 am
arrived here at cnn. for the record, he actually works for nbc as a national security analyst. >> a source says the package may contain powder from the bomb itself. for the latest on what officials are looking for, here is cnn's miguel marquez. >> reporter: christine, dave, the biggest concern is are there more devices out there or being delivered. a national hunt on the way for whomever is responsible for sending these bombs. investigators now looking into several things. both looking at videotape in the new york area and others. the packaging of the bomb to see what they can glean from that or any dna left or fingerprints on the bomb and the bomb itself. pipe, the trigger, the glue, the tape, the explosive itself to see if there are signatures that will help them understand who did this. several of the bombs had also had stamps placed on them, but had been hand delivered.
2:03 am
that may play into the investigation. right now, a national hunt for whoever is responsible and the hope is in releasing that picture is no one will be injured by similar packages out there and it may jar someone's memory or give them information on leads that officials are now desperate for. christine, dave. >> miguel marquez, thank you. the terror threat did not change the president's schedule. he still showed up for the political rally in wisconsin last night. he clearly had the failed pipe bombings on his mind. >> by the way, did you see how nice some are behaving? have you ever seen this? we're all behaving very well. and hopefully we can keep it that way. >> don't hurt yourself patting yourself on the back there. after an earlier call for unity, the president did not
2:04 am
acknowledge his role in the heated political environment. kaitlan collins was at the rally. >> reporter: christine and dave, president trump brought up the attacks on stage here in wisconsin. he denounced the attacks and called for unity. one thing we did not hear from president trump were the names of the people those packages were addressed to. former president barack obama, or hillary clinton. maxine waters. any of the president's favorite political targets at rallies like this, he did not mention them when he got on stage nor did he mention cnn. another favorite target of his while discussing these attacks and calling for unity. however, he did point to the media at one point saying they need to be the ones to make sure they are setting a civil tone. here is what he said. >> any acts or threats of political violence are an attack on our democracy itself. those engaged in the political arena must stop treating political opponents as being morally defective.
2:05 am
as part of a larger national effort to bridge divide and bring people together, the media also has a responsibility to set a civil tone and to stop the endless hostility and constant negative and often times false attacks and stories. have to do it. >> reporter: for the rest of the night, we did see a slightly more subdued tone from president trump. whether or not the president moves forward with the subdued tone and stops calling out hillary clinton at the few rallies he has before the voters go to the polls in the midterms, that is still an open question. what we did see tonight is president trump call for civility, but made no point about anything he said or the critics have said was uncivil. christine and dave. >> thank you for that kaitlan. white house officials not
2:06 am
discussing the issue over president trump to tone down the rhetoric over the crazy things and violence that people want to do. that being said, here is what the president said about the people targeted about those bombs. >> fake as hell, cnn. the worst. >> don't worry. i don't like him either. >> hillary is a dishonest person. if you look at the things she says. they are dishonest. >> i think brennan is a bad guy. if you look at it, a lot of bad things happened under his watch. he's a very bad person. >> and of course, the legendary low iq maxine waters. low iq person. >> it was polarizing under president obama. unbelievably polarized under president obama. >> he'll go to a person holding a
2:07 am
sign who gets paid by soros or somebody. >> you heard the president talk about john brennan as a very bad person. last night, brennan had this to say about the pipe bomb addressed to him here at cnn. >> donald trump has not helped to encourage the type of civil discourse and public engagement. his rhetoric too frequently fuels the feelings and sentiments that now are bleeding over into potentially acts of violence. >> the white house did not reach out to president obama or clintons or any of the officials who received the pipe bombs. >> in fairness, the president is not the only politician using overheated rhetoric. conservatives quick to point to comments like these. >> if you see anybody in that cabinet, in a restaurant, at a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them. and you tell them they're not
2:08 am
welcome. >> michelle says when they go low, we go high. no. no. they go low, we kick them. that's what this new democratic party's about. >> in the wake of the pipe bomb attacks, you might have expected a softer tone from the talk show circuits. instead conspiracy theory and fear mongering. >> not one bomb went off. if the democratic purpose is to make it look like there are mobs everywhere. the mobs are not just democrat mobs. >> it is a high probability that it is a false flag to gain sympathy and get our minds off the hordes of illegal aliens approaching the southern border. >> and telling them you are not wanted anywhere anymore. all of a sudden, pretending to be the party of peace. this is hypocrisy at its worst.
2:09 am
>> two hours after the news of the pipe bombs broke, the president's re-election team sent out an e-mail signed by mr. trump's daughter-in-law, laura. it said i have breaking news for cnn. that is the real america that exists outside of the liberal bubble. now the president's campaign manager apologized claiming the e-mail was pre-programmed and automated message that was not caught before the news broke. late night hosts did address the pipe bombs. >> the white house issued a statement condemning the suspicious packages sent to the clintons and obamas and new york city cnn headquarters. trump ordered the fbi to look at several individuals. including the clintons, obama and cnn. >> cnn evacuated everybody from the offices. i assume wolf blitzer did his show from the situation bodega. >> we have to unify. we have to come together. >> both sides must come together
2:10 am

2:11 am
october is tough. a major adjustment in the stock market environment. investors are coming to grips with the golden days of the rich tax cuts for companies and low interest rates. that great combination is right now and will likely begin to fade next year. as the big companies report profits and beginning to note higher costs from trade disputes and wages. here is the tech damage report. netflix down 9%. facebook dropped 5%. amazon lost 6%.

"the washington post" reporting that haspel listened to the audio of the killing of jamal khashoggi during that trip. we could learn more about what happened. we have cnn's nic robertson in istanbul with the latest. she will come back and tell us what she learned from the turkish authorities? >> reporter: absolutely. we heard president erdogan say the material released has been verified and he has high
2:17 am
confidence. they shared with haspel other material. could be a smoking gun linked to the saudi hit team with crown prince muhammad bin salman. a lot of speculation that turkish investigators may get a second look at the consul-general's home here. we are learning that saudi officials refused to let turkish investigators when they got here a week ago, refused to allow them to look in a large, deep well in the basement here. the consul-general's residence is key because after jamal khashoggi was murdered in the consulate. that so-called hit team drove here, a couple minutes away, to the consul-general's residence. one vehicle went in and disappeared from closed circuit cameras. it would seem from the turkish investigators point of view to

the boston red sox halfway to another world series title. coy wire has more in the bleacher report this morning. good morning, my friend. >> good morning, dave. red sox now won six straight in the post season. the team with the highest payroll in baseball is looking on the way to another title. 40 degrees for game two in boston. fans started to feel things heating up in the fifth. bases loaded for j.d. martinez. he smacks the single to right field. that puts the sox up for good. boston wins 4-2. starting pitcher david price, once drafted by the dodgers out of high school, had control of the mound. with his 17 month old xavier after the game, not so much control. >> that was sharp. fastball command is the key for

2:26 am
dave and christine, that young man takes the show. >> never take a kid to the podium. it is always a curve ball from them. it is nice to have the world series go to 70 degrees in l.a. after 40 degrees in boston. >> thank you. >> romans. a manhunt after a domestic terrorists after an attempted assassination from two former presidents and secretary of state. now the president says it support to the media to change. ? she's saying a whole lotta people want to buy this house. but you got this! rocket mortgage by quicken loans makes the complex simple. understand the details and get approved in as few as eight minutes. by america's largest mortgage lender. up here at the dewar's distillery, all our whiskies are aged, blended and aged again. it's the reason our whisky is so extraordinarily smooth. dewar's. double aged for extra smoothness.

2:32 am
to former vice president joe biden. that packaged considered suspicious because of similarities to others. it was misaddressed and sent back to the same address printed on the other packages. the florida office of congressman debbie wasserman schultz. on monday, a package sent to george soros. >> and another package addressed to the clinton's new york home. wednesday's explosives on the way to the obamas d.c. home. and then maxine waters' with a device at the mail facility. and a package to eric holder sent to debbie wasserman schultz instead. and a package for john brennan addressed here at cnn. just note, he works for nbc. not here at cnn. >> the powder in the package macmay contain white powder from the
2:33 am
bomb itself. we have tom fuentes with the latest on this story. where should the investigation be this hmorning? >> i think there will be several things going on. they will scan social media for anybody that is possibly claiming credit for this or possibly threatening this in the last few weeks. as far as the devices go, they will be sent to the fbi laboratory in quantico. this is a meticulous process. can they get dna from the stamps? were they licked on the package? when the packages opened, are there hair or fibers or skin foli folicles? and how were the devices wired? what were the means of detonation? the power? the manner in which they were assembled which may reveal a
2:34 am
certain style and specific style that makes all of them match each other. all of that will be going on. of course, the outside investigation. cameras in the soros neighborhood and areas where the clinto clintons' home and other homes. they are relatively affluent areas. you expect a number of homes up and down the block to have security cameras. they will scour all security cameras, including traffic cameras and cameras at postal facilities if they can determine anybody going to the facility or dropping them off. and if they were all mailed or hand delivered or the means. we know ones s we know oness back and forth in florida. >> thank goodness nobody got hurt or something did not go wrong with those returned packages. i noticed a lot of tape on the
2:35 am
package that came to cnn. maybe for forensic purposes, that may give clues. and misstoppipelling on the lab. maybe something they can glean. john brennan's name spelled wrong. his package came here and he doesn't work here. clearly they will figure out who got that here and who paid to have that delivered here, no? >> they will try to trace back to identify the courier and identify that company and who with arranged the package to be delivered if they can trace that back. if the courier can provide any information about who gave them the package. those are all very good points. to your point, christine, about the misspelling, that would be something else. in social media, if somebody is writing to somebody else, the threats or credit, did they misspell the names the same way
2:36 am
or did they indicate the mistake and where brennan worked for example not at cnn, but working at msnbc. things like that are part of the investigation. >> let's talk about the device itself. at first glance, it looked like something that was put together by wile e. coyote. does this appear it was capable of a lot of damage or just rudimentary? >> it is rudimentary. it could be put together with the same iq as wile e. coyote. these are easily put together. peopleinafter net for a -- gone on the internet for a couple of hours and gone to the home supply store and put it all together. none of this appears to have
2:37 am
been military grade material where they would have to have access to that. very easily and readily available items that could be put together by almost anybody. >> obvious destruction. sometimes the point of terror is not the attack itself, but disruption to the economy or people or the fear it spreads. one wonders in the person watching this coverage yesterday and maybe worried about copycats and concerned of more devices. >> absolutely. there could be devices in the mail system that didn't arrive yesterday and will be delivered today or the next day or some time in the future. you are right. the person is probably relishing their 15 minutes of indirect fame that they did this. similar to somebody pulling a fire alarm in a school even if they don't get caught, they like the fuss it caused. in this case, terrorism doesn't require that somebody actually be injured by a device or device
2:38 am
go off. the terror occurred yesterday when everybody was searching and looking and closing businesses and evacuating the time warner building. all of those things are what tre terrorists do. >> you were on the air, tom, when the alarm went off here at cnn to tell everyone to get out of the building. you were on the air. in terms of fear and terror, this was the most organized and professional evacuation i have ever seen from our personal standpoint. the nypd and how they managed everyone in the street. hat's off to law enforcement. >> tom, thank you for being here this morning. it was on a personal note, not me or you or us here weren't surprised. >> we were in the middle of covering it. >> we were almost expecting when we heard the alarm what it turned out to be. >> we were in the middle of covering pipe bombs.
2:39 am
we got an alert to get out of the building. the terror threat did not change the president's schedule. he showed up in a political rally in wisconsin and clearly he had the failed pipe bombings on his mind. >> by the way, did you see how nice some are behaving? have you ever seen this? we're all behaving very well. and hopefully we can keep it that way. >> after an earlier call for unity, the president did not acknowledge his role in the heated political environment. kaitlan collins was at the rally. >> reporter: christine and dave, president trump brought up the attacks as soon as he got on stage here in wisconsin. he denounced the attacks and called for unity. one thing we did not hear from president trump were the names of the people those packages were addressed to. former president barack obama, or hillary clinton. maxine waters. any of the president's favorite political targets at rallies like this, he did not mention them when he got on stage nor did he mention cnn.
2:40 am
another favorite target of his while discussing these attacks today and calling for unity. however, he did point to the media at one point saying they need to be the ones to make sure they are setting a civil tone. here is what he said. >> any acts or threats of political violence are an attack on our democracy itself. those engaged in the political arena must stop treating political opponents as being morally defective. as part of a larger national effort to bridge divide and bring people together, the media also has a responsibility to set a civil tone and to stop the endless hostility and constant negative and often times false attacks and stories. have to do it. >> reporter: for the rest of the night, we did see a slightly
2:41 am
more subdued tone from president trump. whether or not the president moves forward with the subdued tone and stops calling out hillary clinton when he is at the rallies in the less than two weeks before the midterms is still in question. what we did see tonight is president trump call for civility, but made no point about anything he said or the critics have said was uncivil. christine and dave. >> kaitlan collins, thank you. white house officials not discussing the issue over president trump to tone down the rhetoric over the crazy things and violence that people want to do. here is what the president said about the people targeted about those bombs. >> fake as hell, cnn. the worst. >> don't worry. i don't like him either. >> hillary is a dishonest person. if you look at the things she says. they are dishonest. >> i think brennan is a bad guy.
2:42 am
if you look at it, a lot of things happened under his watch. he's a very bad person. >> and of course, the legendary low iq maxine waters. low iq person. >> it was polarizing under president obama. unbelievably polarized under president obama. >> he'll go to a person holding a sign who gets paid by soros or somebody. >> you heard the president talk about john brennan as a very bad person. last night, brennan had this to say about the pipe bomb addressed to him here at cnn. >> donald trump has not helped to encourage the type of civil discourse and public engagement. his rhetoric too frequently fuels the feelings and sentiments that now are bleeding over into potentially acts of violence. >> the white house did not reach out to president obama or

while you were sleeping, late night comedians found the lighter side of the serious day here in america. >> the white house issued a statement today condemning the suspicious packages to the clintons and former president obama and cnn's new york city headquarters. trump ordered the fbi to look at suspects, including clintons, obama and cnn. >> cnn evacuated everybody from the offices. i assume wolf blitzer did his show from the situation bodega.

2:50 am
like their family didn't love them or being pushed out of their homes. very close to suicide. i mean, just things that really just pulled my heart. i started saying, you know, i am a private person and so i've kept me to my small circle. i started thinking, you know, that is a selfish thing to do at this point. i need to be bigger than that. i need to do something for them. >> cook said being gay is quote god's greatest gift to me. adding he was surprised, but proud to be the first out ceo of the fortune 500 company. he said our own information is being weaponized against us with military efficiency. privacy is the issue that defines the century and the data industrial complex needs
