tv   New Day Weekend with Victor Blackwell and Christi Paul  CNN  March 2, 2019 4:00am-5:01am PST

4:00 am
>> you know, when they told me this happened, i'm like, where was that? anywhere in our vicinity? >> it's not. the i'm not going to peru. nothing against peru, just very opposed to spiders of that size. why did some of the president's closest advisers like curb near get access to security without clearance? >> i wouldn't do it. >> why does he keep lying about this stuff? the parents of an american student who died after being imprisoned in north korea have lashed out at the president. >> he tells me that he didn't know about it. and i will take him at his word. >> it is not normal for a president of the united states to praise one of the worst dictators on the planet. the president of the united states insists he likes kim jong-un.
4:01 am
>> he's very smart, he's sharp and he's a natural leader. >> the president is a negotiator. he's smart enough to walk away from the deal and say, mr. chairman, thanks but no thanks, got to go. well, good morning to you on this saturday. the weekend always feels pretty good, doesn't it? i'm christi paul and -- >> i'm phil massi imattingly, y haven't kicked me out yet. >> his active chief of staff called it a masterful performance. we'll hear from the president for the first time. >> president trump will speak at the conservative political action conference this morning. and it comes at the tail end of a rough week at the white house. joining us for what to expect today. cnn white house reporter sarah westwood. sarah, we've been talking about the week that was.
4:02 am
what are the expectations add cpac? >> well, phil, president trump is recovering from a week of headlines both from foreign policy agenda and domestic agenda. we'll see the president try to put a positive spin on it. take a look at the headlines that came out this week. first, you had congressional testimony from trump's former liar and fix eer michael cohen which raised questions. and trump walked away from the talks in north korea empty-handed. there were reports that trump granted his son-in-law jared kushner, a top security clearance. and the house committee announced that felix sater will testify on moscow tower. and then the words of otto warm brooe
4:03 am
bier, that he believed jookim jong-un. so obviously, president trump is trying to turn the page after that rough week when he headed to cpac. it will be a very friendly audience. it's a conservative gathering that he has not missed since he became president. and lots of people trace the launch back to his speech he gave in 2011. so this is president trump returning to an event that has shaped his political career. we will expect to see president trump try to argue that this week was not as tough for him as it appears to have been, phil and christi. >> obviously, the president intends to go off script in cpac, thank you very much. >> "the new york times" ordered a security clearance for his son-in-law jared kushner. this is over the objections of other white house staffers. the congressional reaction to that report wasse immediate.
4:04 am
the chairman said he wants to see documents on monday. what comes next. page pate is with us now. let's talk about that. they're saying they want to see the document acheatiodocumentat house does not produce that by monday, what is the consequence? >> ultimately, we may end up in court. we have a very aggressive democrat-led congress. they want to investigate a lot going on in the white house. they're making requests, eventually, they want to issue subpoenas. what happens when the white house says, no? we're not going to participate in this? well, it's comblplicated, becau normally, when they want to enforce a subpoena, they go to the department of justice and require the person to go to court to respond to it. are we going to see that cooperation when it involves the white house? it's going to end up in court to determine whether congress has the authority to get a lot of the documents and testimony that they requested. >> also.
4:05 am
i want to ask you about paul manafort because we had representative gerry connolly of the oversight committee saying it seems like paul manafort is fishing for a pardon. do you see elements of that? >> he's been fishing for a pardon since day one. that's the reason they went to trial in virginia. there was no solid legal defense to the tax fraud allegations he was facing. he knew he was looking at a lot of time. i think always, he believed at the end of the day, the president was going to issue a pardon. now, why it taking so long? i think they're concerned potentially about state criminal charges. so the president can't pardon for state charges, only fed charges. perhaps paul manafort is thinking i'm going to get my sentence and do some time but once the statute of limitations runs, then i'll be out. >> when is that? >> it depends on the crime but usually five years.
4:06 am
we may see him sit in prison for a few years but eventually, we'll see the president pardon him. >> and the fbi says that releasing any information that is related to comey, the comey memos which this is coming from a new court filing, cnn is trying to get those released. the fbi says that's going to compromise the mueller investigation. is there credence in that? >> could be. we don't know what is in the memos. we don't know where mueller is in the investigation. we've heard reports they're about to issue the final report. it's about to go to the department of justice, the attorney general. but we don't know. that's interesting for me to see, and other lawyers watching this, especially people concerned about transparency in government. how much of this investigation are go going to know about? congress is going to try to get at did if we don't hear it from the department of justice. but we're going to see this same issue pop up. congress cannot compel the department of justice to full them the full memo.
4:07 am
>> we know michael cohen is going to be talking again to the house intelligence committee. this will be the fourth meeting he had in a week's time. did you see any of his testimony this week? >> i did. yes. >> what was your takeaway? >> i think cease presehas shown people may be involved. we've known people that relate very close to the president and individual one himself which we now know is the president, i think there is clear evidence, there are campaign finance violations that occurred here. but perhaps the southern district is saying, look, it's department of justice policy. we can't prosecute a president. so, i don't know how much more of an investigation they're going to pursue. >> i want to can you about that, again, representative connolly said, i think, wednesday or thursday, he was talking about the optics of hearing from the family. of course, now, the committee wants to hear from ivanka and
4:08 am
don junior. and he was saying two subjects of the criminal probe of these people in the southern district of new york, and he says it may be better to let that play out before the committee and talk to them afterwards. what is your thought process? >> that make sense. i think normally, and they've done this so far, congress is trying to keep their investigation on one track and not interfere with criminal investigations. because at the end of the day if they do anything, if congress does anything to upset, interfere, i wouldn't say obstruct, but in some way affect the criminal investigation before it's completed, it could jeopardize that investigation. these people don't want to talk publicly until they've resolved their criminal trial. >> real quickly, how vulnerable is the president based on what we though so far? >> i think very vulnerable. that doesn't mean anything is going to happen to him in the office. we've heard people suggest that the southern district is preparing this case to indict him once he leaves office. that's possible. they could indict him, put it
4:09 am
under seal and on pause, we don't know. >> page pate, appreciate your insight. >> thank you. bernie sanders is hitting the campaign trail returning to his roots in brooklyn for a rally this morning. a source tells cnn expect to hear deeply personal remarks. also, the u.s. is planning to scale down large-scale military exercises that it has had with south korea. so what does that mean for north korea? we'll talk about that. and major league baseball looking into a heated altercation between san francisco giants ceo larry baer and his wife pam. pam baer has now given us a response to that video. and you're going to see the video as well. stay close. one hour pickup order?

13 minutes past the hour right now. in the field of candidates for the 2020 race for the white house. it's growing every day. >> it's less than 100 but more than 10 at this point with the possibility of getting to 100? >> absolutely.
4:14 am
look at the screen. the washington senator jumped into the crowd of candidates yesterday. and we're still waiting to hear whether texas congressman beto o'rourke will jump in. >> he was supposed to announce by end of february. and this morning, bernie sanders is returning to his roots for a campaign rally in brooklyn. according to a speech given by the campaign, the senator will discuss his working struggles. i'll discuss this. joining me now, elijah kahn. and former spokesman for darrell issa. aliza, i run into you on capitol hill. kurt, we've dealt with you in your old life. the personal touch from bernie
4:15 am
sanders in 2016. it's not something is that we saw in 2016, why are we seeing it now? >> we did not see it in 2016 but we're seeing it now because bernie sanders has to set himself apart. the field is much more crowded. in 2016, bernie sanders really li realized he was a long shot bid. but it's aligned on policy so he has to set himself apart. he also has a story that his campaign is hoping there rez son nature with voters. going to brooklyn, he's able to talk about his immigrant family. in chicago, he can talk about his activism. and it's sort of an appeal to thing some sort of those people that he was not able to bring in 2016. >> yeah, it's fascinating to watch. how does he differentiate himself, one more for you, eliza, a news avalanche. but there was a new hampshire poll that came out, bernie
4:16 am
sanders at 26, joe biden at 2. elizabeth warren at 7%. new hampshire is, i would think, would be elizabeth warren's place to make a move. this is a big problem for her? >> it could be. i think it's very early. new hampshire is also very close to vermont that is also bernie sanders country. but we could really run into a situation where we have such a big field that different candidates are winning each of the early states. we don't know who a front-runner is for a while. but new hampshire is certainly a place that he should be polling higher. so, i think her team probably was nervous seeing that poll, but we still have a long time. >> the always important caveat. all right. i want to get to you on a couple things, your past life, but also a column you wrote talking about kind of what the fallout would be from this week. i want you to take a listen to a sound from debbie wasserman schultz with michael cohen.
4:17 am
>> was ivanka, jared, or don junior still involved in the russian tower deal at that time? >> the company was involved in the deal which meant that the family was involved in the deal. >> if mr. trump and his daughter ivanka and son donald junior are involved in the russian trump tower deal, it possible that the whole family is conflicted or compromised with a foreign adversary in the months before the election? >> yes. >> now, kurt, in reading your piece, i think you and i may have had the same reaction in watching that, which people are laying the groundwork for something. to some degree. is that kind of your take on what that hearing meant for the family? >> yeah, and i thought, what stood out for me forfor
4:18 am
congresswoman debbie wasserman schultz. cohen had talked about things that happened at the dnc that made a lot of sense to go down that path, but she didn't. but instead, she went down his line of the trump family. what that told me, this is of interest for the committee, getting a corroboration on the record, naming names and those names are clearly the path of this congress and the pursuit is going to go for these people for depositions or hearing or documents or anything with their name on it that they were aware of. you heard them ask, were they involved in meetings? were they believed? how many times did that happen? that's going to be a huge focus for the oversight committee going forward. and cummings said that yesterday. chairman cummings said all you have to do is look at the transcript to know where they're going to go next. >> yeah. kind of made clear the targets. look, can you take us behind the closed doors. you've been behind closed doors when the new chairman comes in
4:19 am
and has subpoena power. what are the plans of the democrats when they look at the sheer scope? >> that right there, there are so many threads to pursue. and so many other committees to looking at things and a lot of overwrap intersecting. so there has to be clear communication and clear lines for each committee to follow. and rhetorically, you have to let the facts go where they're going to go. going out and making declarations frankly and candidly, we as republicans working on the committee, we would make declarations and making sure facts aligned. i think you're seeing from cummings, a different tract, a very deliberative and retorque rhetorical tract. and you'll see that's where all democrats across the entire congress need to look at it. don't make announcements, don't
4:20 am
make assumptions, don't make guesses, just let the evidence speak for itself. >> and eliza, what are the odds that kurt is saying that all democrats will come in line and get what they're searching for? >> i think so far democrats have done a really good job of being united. leadership has sent a message down, we're not talking about impeachment. weed me to make a case. democrats ran. they said we want to get trump's tax returns as soon as we take power. they have not done that yet. they have had hearings. and the chairman of the ways and means committee can request tax returns. he's not done that yet. but there's sort of a growing anger on the progressive wing of the party that they aren't moving fast enough on the tax returns. now that there are names being named. we're going to see the progressive wing expect those people to come in and expect
4:21 am
some answers. so, i think right now, they've done a good job of staying united. but i'm not sure how long that will last, the more that things come out. >> yeah it gets a little more complicated. kurt bardella, thank you so much. eliza, i'll see you in the hallways on monday. >> see you monday. the u.s. said it will most likely have a much smaller military exercise with south korea this year. we'll talk about how that will impact north korea. or its si? in crossing harsh terrain... or breaking new ground? and to do these things once... or seven times over? this is the mercedes-benz suv family. get the 2019 glc, starting at $40,700. mercedes-benz. the best or nothing.

4:25 am
we've been waiting for you. 25 minutes past the hour on this saturday. i'm christi paul. >> i'm phil mattingly. you're awake at 7:25 on a saturday. you must have kids. we want to talk about the u.s. and south korea right now because they are expected to announce the annual military exercises between two countries are going to be scaled back.
4:26 am
u.s. defense officials say they will have exercises in a small level that could involve virtual training. >> this is known as full eagle and key resolve had been scheduled for the spring. this all comes as president trump who likes to be known for his art of the deal, walked away from the north korean summit without the art of deal in hand. >> the president really is a master negotiator, and he was able to walk away from the deal to tell you, listen chairman, i really appreciate this. thanks but no thanks. got to go, okay? and did so in such a fashion to keep all of the connections, all of the relationships still intact. so that you can pick up a discussion whenever you want do in the future. there's no wounds to be healed. >> now, this might surprise you but democratic presidential candidate senator elizabeth warren, well, she disagreed. she said the president is making
4:27 am
it look back on the world stage. >> president trump proved once again that he is a terrible negotiator. he showed up without having done his homework. he then thought he could come in and sort of roll through it without any real preparation. and he walked away empty-handed. he doesn't make america stronger. he makes it the laughingstock. >> now, president trump is clarifying his comments regarding american student otto warmbier's death. >> the warmbier family had sent out a scathing statement after the president's defending of north korean leader kim jong-un. cnn's brian todd has the story. >> reporter: analysts called a low point in an already dismal news conference. >> he tells me he didn't know about it and i will take him at his word. >> reporter: the president saying he supported north korean leader kim jong-un's stance. that kim didn't know of american student otto warmbier's deteriorating condition in a prison. >> i don't believe he would have
4:28 am
allowed that to happen. >> reporter: otto warmbier a opportunity at the university of virginia was arrested after allegedly stealing a political sign in pyongyang. during what was widely seen as a show trial he left. >> reporter: north korean diplomats abruptly asked for a meeting with their u.s. counterparts and told them the young american was in a coma. warmbier was quickly evacuated and died a couple days after returning home. trump initially attacked kim. >> we need only look at the depraved character of the north korean regime. >> reporter: and he embraced warmbier's parents even exciting them to the state of the union address. >> you were powerful witnesses to a menace that threatening our world, and your strength truly inspires us all. >> reporter: analysts said that seemed to be a far cry from his comments this week. >> he felt badly about it.
4:29 am
>> reporter: trump has in fact struck a different tone with kim jong-un. >> and then we fell in love, okay? no, really. he wrote me beautiful letters. and they're great letters. >> reporter: tonight, facing backlash from the family, the president took to twitter saying he had been misinterpreted on thursday. quote, cour shg quote, of course, i hold north korea for otto's death. >> mr. trump wants otto to be reunited with his family in his final hours. the president is saying there's no indication that the president knew what happened to otto wa warmbi warmbier. >> reporter: doctors said they believed he had been in a vegetative statement for 14 months before being sent home. >> if he's in a vegetative state
4:30 am
for 14 months does kim jong-un not know about it at all? >> no, kim would have known as soon as they determined this was something that wasn't reversible. he would have known immediately. >> reporter: brian todd, cnn, washington. >> for more than a week. will, the big question i have with the domestic backlash here, what was the president thinking when he said is that about jun and the warmbier family. was there a strategy there? or was he lost in what was actually going on? >> reporter: i think that press conference, phil, was an attempt by president trump to salvage what was really a diplomatic nightmare that signaled a clear lack of preparation. you don't fly a u.s. president and have a north korean leader travel by train across china to vietnam to come for nothing, to leave without a signed agreement. i mean, the north koreans were so confident they'd have a
4:31 am
signed agreement, they did not have a backup plan, my sources say. so trump at the podium was trying to play nice. trying to still preserve that good relationship with kim jong-un. and not say anything to offend him. hoping that is kind of the string that holds this whole thing together. and clearly, they couldn't come to terms on the key issues and meaningful steps towards denuclearization. >> let's talk about the news of the day here. the u.s./south korea military exercises scaled back. niece have been significant. up to this point, the president has called them expensive and provocative. what are the consequences of pulling back on those, will? >> reporter: well, the suspension of the joint drills has contributed to the easing of tensions on the peninsula, there's no doubt. as has kim jong-un's morning year-long freeze in missile and nuclear testing. but the problem military analysts say, is that when u.s. troops are not able to train in
4:32 am
the narrative they're used to training with south korea forces, over time, as u.s. troops get phased out. and new south korean soldiers come in, the state of readiness for the two to work together in the event of a conflict or crisis continues to diminish. now, you can argue that north korea's missile program suffers to some extent because they're not launching and testing missiles and nuclear devices. but they already have conducted so many tests and learned so much from them, now, all of the money that they're saving from not testing can go into other areas of the nuclear program. and that's exactly what u.s. intelligence analysts have seen happen. there was even a stanford university study earlier this year suggesting that north korea has been able during this diplomatic entente to enrich nuclear fields up to seven weapons. >> no one covers this issue better, will ripley, thank you so much. information says a new leader of al qaeda is surfacing.
4:33 am
>> jake tapper has the newest addition to the most wanted list. >> reporter: like father, like son, osama bin laden's son is the most wanted. offering $1 million for the whereabouts of hamza bin laden. the new leader of al qaeda. >> it's a heads-up that we are looking for you and we will get you. >> reporter: hamza's terrorist pedigree to hamza's wedding to a senior al qaeda daughter in iran. hamza has appeared in propaganda video since he was a child. and documents obtained from a navy s.e.a.l.s raid indicated that bin laden was grooming him. >> his father was writing him fairly sensitive issues when he was on the run. he was supposed to be in the
4:34 am
compound in pakistan when he was killed. >> reporter: it's that raid that may be driving hamza. >> he has threatened to attack the united states in revenge for the may 2011 killing of his father. >> reporter: the u.s. official officially designated hamza as a terrorist in 2017. and now all united nations are required to freeze all of his assets. al qaeda which perpetrated the 9/11 attacks is rebuilding. attacks that led to the u.s. war in afghanistan, the nation's longest war with 14,000 troops still in the country. al qaeda hack wes been weakened recent years. but al qaeda is rebuilding and wants to re-establish itself as a leader of the a global movement. >> al qaeda is showing signs of confidence as its leaders work to encourage attacks against western interests. >> al qaeda obtains both the
4:35 am
capability and intent to hit us. >> reporter: one of the last major al qaeda attacks in the west is the 2005 london subway bombings killing 52 peoples. however al qaeda affiliates have been carrying out attacks recently. in january of this year, el shabaab killed 21 in an north korea in nairobi. the u.s. state department now says they believe hamza is somewhere on the afghanistan-pakistan border. and could possibly cross over into iran. >> somebody like hamza, a younger guy who has been in the group since basically a child, i think, is a significant threat. >> reporter: jake tapper, cnn, washington. >> thanks, jake. up next, san francisco giants ceo larry baer and his wife are apologizing after a very public altercation in a san francisco park. we have the video, police are investigating right after the break. >> also, a reminder four, join us tomorrow for a new special

joanna hayes, ilhan omar, lae alexandria ocasio-cortez. and thank you tour being here. i want to ask you out of the gate, i understand you asked each of these women whether they would vote for impeachment. what reaction did you get from that? >> well, i think the reactions really ran -- they were really on a spectrum, i guess, starting with johanna hayes who was a little bit more cautious about it. she said, you know, i don't know that i would vote for that today. i think we need to figure out -- we need to get the report and we need to have all of the details before we move to do that. ilhan omar who grew up in somalia, before she was an immigrant to the u.s., she said that, you know, every time
4:48 am
countries overthrow a dictator, that's a really big deal. we need to be careful about that. she spoke about her fear of what a pence presidency would look like if trump was impeached. nancy pelosi, the speaker of the house, who obviously has the most power in a decision like that, she said, you know, this is a real resource-intensive process. we need to wait for the mueller report, we need to really figure it out. and then you have representative ocasio-cortez who is like, yeah, no question. i would absolutely vote to impeach. and i have no reservations about that. i don't know why it would be controversial. >> speaking of aoc and nancy pelosi, obviously very different experiences that they're bringing but nancy pelosi, as i understand it, was very open about talking about her skepticism of the new green deal. >> yes. >> and that's something, of
4:49 am
course, that is a hallmark of aoc's policy and what she wants to promote. how do those two come together? >> so, one thing that's really interesting about -- and part of the reason we wanted to have these women on the cover together, is because they do have this really interesting dynamic which they both spoke to in each of the interviews. nancy pelosi talked about having these protesters, including, alexandria ocasio-cortez, stage a sit-in her office in november demanding action on climate change. and she said, you know, that's how i got into politics in the first place. i was an activist. i was an organizer. i was on the streets carrying signs, asking why our representatives were going back to washington and compromising. and she said, i have a different role now. i'm the speaker of the house. my job is to build a coalition and to achieve compromise. and make sure that whatever legislation we're getting, we're putting together, we're going to
4:50 am
get passed. you know, she's never lost a vote in the house. and ocasio-cortez, in her sk interview said the same thing. she said i know that nancy pelosi has a responsibility to build consensus. i know she's but my job is to shift the overton window, that's her term. and make sure the conversation we are having is the most aggressive possible. >> that kind of gets to the heart of their respective reactions to the green new deal. alexandria ocasio-cortez is talking about this huge plan that includes jobs guarantee and addresses healthcare disparities, social justice issues. nancy pelosi is saying, you know, there is a lot of good ideas in there, but i want something that can pass. >> all right. hey, thank you so much for being here. very interesting article. great cover. we appreciate your time. >> thanks. >> absolutely.

4:58 am
you are talking well over a foot high. the problem there is it is likely going to slow the mushers and the teams down, here's a perfect something of this, this is why i want you to understand why this so important and video of cute dogs always help. these are dogs trying to push through the snow. they're trying to make some forward progression. it's very difficult because of how deep the snow is. i will point out the iditarod dogs will be slightly larger than this it's difficult to push those sleds forward when the snow is so deep. that's the problem we v. they begin the ceremonial start in anchora anchorage. tomorrow is the restart. this is when the quote/unquote real race begins and they will continue up to gnome. widespread depths of 10 to 15 inches are already on the ground. here's the other thing to know, a lot of these locations could potentially pick up as much as an additional foot of snow
4:59 am
before the race ends. christy, likely, most of the teams will end tuesday or wednesday the following week. given the amount of snow, it's more likely to be on wednesday. >> puppies running in snow is a nice play there there. it is worth noting, alaska is not the only area getting hit, there are 75 million people this morning under a winter alert. >> let's focus on the northeast. you got boston, fork, philadelphia, that are expected to get several inches out of this next system. here's a look. it really starts to develop overnight tonight around the arkla-tex area. it will bring snow to texas, illinois and noticohio. by tomorrow afternoon and evening it starts to push into the mid-atlantic and into the northeast. yes, places like philly, about two-to-four inches. new york about there-to-five, boston, could pick up potentially four-to-six inches of snow before it's done. >> it's this time of year
