>> the white house pushing back on investigations by house democrats. the strategy could involve withholding documents. north korea has begun rebuilding part of a long-range missile test facility. work began right around the summit between the president and kim jong-un. and a new drug has been approved to treat severe depression. major news for millions who haven't been helped by other anti-depressants. good morning, everyone. welcome to "early start." i'm dave briggs. >> good morning, i'm christine romans. it's wednesday, march 6th. for the second time in two weeks we're learning that the president overruled security officials on personal grounds. three sources tell cnn president trump pressured top aides to grant a security clearance to first daughter and senior aide ivanka trump. now ivanka contradicting that to abc news three weeks ago. >> president had no involvement pertaining to my clearance and my husband's clearance.
>> so, no special treatment? >> no. >> not clear what red flags were holding up ivanka's clearance. several sources telling cnn it's possible she was unaware there were any concerns raised during her background check or her father's involvement. but it followed the president ordering a top secret clearance for ivanka's husband jared kushner. cnn correspondent pamela brown with more from washington. good morning, we're learning that president trump pressured his white house steve of staff john kelly and don mcgahn to grand ivanka trump against recommendations. this is an authority speaking to me and my colleague kaelyn collins. and but after concerns were raised by the personnel office, trump pushed kelly and mcgaine to make the decision, so it
didn't appear he was tainting the process in his family's favor. after both refused, trump granted the security clearance. now, this development comes on the heels of the "the new york times" reporting that trump ordered kelly to grant ivanka's husband jared kushner top security clearance, despite concerns raised by intelligence officials. white house press secretary sarah sanders said the white house cannot comment on security issues, nor can it respond to every anonymous source. kelly declined to comment. cnn has learned that the concerns about granting the security clearance to ivanka trump were separate from those of her husband. and cnn also being told the white house is rejecting the white house oversight demand for document and interviews about the interviews of some of trump's closest advisers including jared kushner. president trump signaling the white house will push back against the barrage of congressional investigations targeting his political and
personal lives. west wing officials say the strategy here is to limit the number of documents provided to house committees. the president accusing democrats of launching probes to hurt his re-election chance making a curious reference to his predecessor. >> essentially what they're saying is the campaign begins, instead of doing infrastructure, instead of doing health care, instead of doing so many things that they should be doing, they want to play games. president obama, from what they stem, was under a similar kind of a thing. didn't give one letter. they didn't do anything. they didn't give one letter of the request. many requests were made. they didn't give a letter. >> it's not clear what letter president trump is talking about, but president obama did hand over documents, lots of documents to the investigations launched by congressional republicans. you can see all of them there. now, white house officials are bracing for congressional efforts to go after mr. trump's
tax returns. there's only one democrat on capitol hill to officially demand the tax forms the ways means chairman richard neal. he said he does not have a time line, he will seek the forms only after his committee has built a case to do so. michael cohen back on capitol hill today. he'll be finishing his testimony to the house intelligence committee behind closed doors. his appearance comes one day after the new york state finance department slapped a subpoena on insurance broker aon plc, a few days after cohen dropped this potential bombshell. >> to your knowledge, did the president ever provide inflated assets to an insurance company? >> yes. >> aon says it intends to cooperate. the new york state finance department can impose heavy fines. and while it does not have the power to bring criminal charges, it can refer its findings to state prosecutors. breaking overnight, new satellite images appearing to
show north korea rebuilding part of a long-range missile testing facility. the work taking place around the same time that president trump was meeting with kim in hanoi at a summit that ended abruptly. paula hancocks live from seoul with the breaking details. paula. >> well, christine, this is tongchang-ri, this is a missile engine test site. the north koreans had been disassembling over the past recent months. it's one that north korean leader kim jong-un had spoken to the south korean president moon jae-in about, as being part of the declaration, saying they were pulling it apart, also talking about they would have independent inspectors to go and look at it and check it was out of action. now, of course, over recent days, potentially weeks, you see the satellite images showing that there is a door being put back. there's a roof being put back. and the intelligence agency here, in south korea also saying that they are seeing indications
that they are real assembling what they have already taken apart. now, the key here is the timing. when exactly was this happening 38 north, the think tank, says it's anytime between february 16th and march 2nd. so it could be before, during or after the summit between kim jong-un and the u.s. president. because that's not clear at this point, many experts are reticent to say definitively that this is a sign from the north koreans to say that they are not happy that hanoi summit ended without any kind of agreement. what we have to wait for now is if there will be any kind of comment from the trump administration. christine. >> all right, paula, thank you for that in seoul this morning. six minutes past the hour. house democrats plan to update their resolution condemning anti-semitism to also include anti-muslim bias. democrats face pressure to condemn anti-semitic comments by freshman ilhan omar of minnesota and also defend her from
anti-muslim rhetoric. >> omar, one of the first two muslim women to serve in congress, once again under fire for repeatedly suggesting support for israel is tied to jewish money. her comments sparking calls from some jewish groups to remove her from the house foreign affairs committee. the chairman eliot engel says he's not close to doing that. a surge of migrants and families ag it's u.s./mexico border has officials at a, quote, breaking point. 36,000 people were apprehended crossing over illegal in february. 76,000, that's the highest number in any february over the past 12 years. slightly fewer than 10% were unaccompanied children. more than half came with family members. the previous years single adults have made up the majority of migrants. this happening as congressional republicans grapple with trump's national emergency declaration, in order to build this signature border
wall, gop leaders saying planning to block the declaration next we're. four senate republicans have said publicly they will support the resolution which pushes it beyond the simple majority needed to pass but they expect to fall well sort of the majority. experts calling it the biggest advancement in years to fight depression. the food and drug administration approving a new nasal spray sold as spravoto. the medication designed for adults who have not benefited from other anti-depressant drugs. that's about a third of americans. it's based on a powerful tranquilizer known as ketamine or special k. it will carry a black box warning by the fda with abuse with suicidal thoughts and side effects. people will have to be monitoring for at least two hours to guard against that. and eye-popping deficit
numbers from the u.s. treasury department. the deficit grew 77% in the first four months of fiscal year 2019. the deficit, $310 billion up from $176 billion a year ago. now, the budget deficit ballooned as tax revenue plummeted and government spending rose. but interest rates are still relatively low, right? so, you can finance all of this debt, longer term is it sustainable. larry kudlow said this on fox news. >> we are making an investment in america's future. it's already beginning to pay off. if that means we incur additional debt in this short run, so be it. >> in the short run, but these forecasts do not look good. the numbers come as the white house gets ready to release a new budget sometime this month. the congressional office estimates the deficit will reach roughly $900 billion. the spending went up on military, veterans affairs and
interest on debt. and the government took in a whole lot less because companies got a big tax break and so did individuals. when you look further out, you're talking about in a decade or less when we're spending more on interest on our debt, with that pile of debt. interest on the debt is bigger than all discretionary spending. think roads, bridges. >> larry kudlow said it's the short term. bravo. >> i thought republicans hated deficits. very scary moments on a norwegian cruise. oh, the ship tilts severely at sea after being hit by hurricane-force winds. ♪

we'll also have r. kelly speaking out saying he's innocent of the accusations. it's 5:30. we start at the white house. for the second time in two weeks we learned the president overruled security officials on grounds president trump pressured aides to grant a security clearance to first daughter and senior aide ivanka trump. the revelation contradicting ivanka's admission to abc news just three weeks ago. >> the president had no involvement pertaining to my clearance and my husband's clearance. >> so, no special treatment? >> no. >> it's not clear what red flags were holding up her clearance. several sources tell cnn it's possible she was unaware there were concerns raised during her background check. or she may not have known of her father's involvement. but it followed the president's ordering a top secret clearance for her husband jared kushner. cnn pamela brown has more from washington. >> good morning, we have learned
that president trump pressured his chief of staff john kelly and white house counsel don mcgahn to grant ivanka trump security clearances depend their recommendations. while the president has legal authority to grant clearances, most inferences are left up to the white house security office which would determine whenever a staffer should be granted one after the fbi conducts a background check. after concerns were raised by the personnel office, trump pushed kelly and mcgahn to make the decision. after both refused, trump granted the security clearance. this development comes on the heels of the "the new york times" reporting that trump ordered security officials. the white house's sarah sanders saying they cannot comment on security issues.
and kelly could not be cleared for comment. and after granting a security clearance to vane ivanka were separate from her husband. the cnn being told the white house rejected documents about security clearances of some of president trump ace closest advisers and that raises the likelihood of subpoenas from elijah cummings. >> and joining us this wednesday morning, zach wolf, you're raring to go. 5:33. >> and it's hump day. >> we see from the contours that's going to be the democratic strategy to investigate the president in any way, shape and form. here's how the president yesterday pushed back. >> essentially, what they're saying is the campaign begins, instead of doing infrastructure, testify doing health care. instead of doing so many things that they should be doing, they want to play games.
president obama, from what they tell me, was under a similar kind of a thing. didn't give one letter. they didn't do anything. they didn't give one letter of the request. many requests were made. they didn't give a letter. >> a couple of things there, everybody seems -- some of the refusal to grant interviews or information from the republican side. some of these refusals, commit requests have started. but you hear the president talk about the obama administration didn't give one letter. now, zach, i seem to recall a republican congress that was really aggressive with investigations into the president's administration fast and furious, with benghazi, how many hours of testimony was there on benghazi? that was a multiyear effort. the irs targeting conservative groups and they gave over lots of information. what's the strategy from the white house? >> i think what wee swe see her are witch hunt part two.
they're trying to imply that democrats are bent on impeaching trump. so we're going to see everything tooth and nail. it short of makes sense the way he sparked the mueller probe, the way he starts any investigation. the first thing you have to do in trump's mind clearly is kneecap the investigation and make it seem unfair. that's clearly going on here. and the most predictable thing, he's not going to want to help at all. why would you help people trying to bring you down. >> he thrives on this fight. it kind of plays to his strength. >> it absolutely does. but the first part of what he said, this notion that you can't legislate and investigate at the same time. but i must have missed the white house proposal on infrastructure or the health care bill to protect preexisting conditions. i don't see either side trying to legislate. >> right. >> is this what the next two years look like? >> well, i mean, he also had two years with complete republican control in which to legislate.
they got one huge achievement in the tax bill. but that's also made it more difficult, i think, for them to do something like infrastructure, because as you guys were talking about earlier, this hour, the u.s. budget deficit is exploding. so, it's hard to pay for any sort of new legislation. >> and that deficit is exploding from exactly things that this administration has championed. military spending, veterans affairs. interest on the debt. and then companies are paying less in taxes. and people are paying less in taxes. so that's a big gap. >> he had only two hours to speak the other day, no mention of an agenda. no mention of proposals or legislation coming this way. so, let's turn our attention towards 2020 and where the fight is headed. michael bloomberg is the latest to say he will not run. and he said something interesting here, he said a warning to democrats, quote, we cannot allow the primary process to drag the party to an extreme that would diminish our chance in the general election and
translate into four more years. who is michael bloomberg warning of? and what is he warning of? is it the green new deal? >> i think he's warning, largely, about bernie sanders, if i had to guess, without naming him. that left lane in the democratic primary is looking extremely crowded right now. and the middle lane doesn't really have, you know, it doesn't a top voice. sort of emerging to be the person that people rally around. you know, that's essentially the same warning that howard schultz made, what michael bloomberg just said. there is i think, a lot of concern amongst a lot of democrats about where the party is going to land at the end of this primary process. >> it's one of the people talked about, sherrod brown's name is swirled around in him. he has a populism that to him is not that progressive. all right. it's going to be interesting. guess what, this week, exactly a
year, zach, from this week is super tuesday, if you want to put it in your calendar. >> yeah. it's already there. >> it's already there. i'm sure it is. zach, nice to see you. michael cohen back on capitol hill today. he'll be finishing his testimony to the house intelligence committee behind closed doors. his appearance comes one day after the new york state finance department slapped a subpoena on the trump administration insurance broker aonplc, just a few days after trump posted this bombshell. >> to your knowledge did an trump assets to an insurance company? >> yes. >> it can refer to state prosecutors for that. breaking overnight, new satellite images appearing to show north korea rebuilding part of a long-range missile testing facility. the work apparently taking place around the same time kim jong-un was meeting with president trump
in vietnam at a summit that ended abruptly with no deal. paula hancocks live from seoul with the breaking details. hi there, paula. >> hello, dave. well, these are commercial satellite images which appear to show, according to 38 north and ciss, that north korea is rebuilding part of this missile engine test site that they had already dismantled. now, we have been seeing over recent months that they were dismantling part of it. we know that north korean leader kim jong-un has spoken to the south korean leader moon jae-in, and they were discussing having independent investigators going to this test site to show it's out of action. but this is also corroborate greated by south korean intelligence agencies here saying that they are also seeing that a roof, a door has been reassembled. they are seeing vehicles that
are moving materials around this particular area. of course, timing is key. we don't know exactly what date these images are from. we know from 38 north it's anything from february 16th to march 2nd. so, it could have been either before, during or after the summit in hanoi. so, because of that, many experts are waiting to see exactly when it was. they don't want to say at this point, this is north korea shows definitively that they were unhappy there was no deal made. dave. >> paula hancocks in seoul. thank you. house democrats planning to update their resolution to also include an anti-muslim bias. the resolution is likely to come to the floor for a vote tomorrow instead of today. after ilhan omar of minnesota and also to defend her from anti-muslim rhetoric. >> omar one of two muslim women to serve in congress once again under fire for repeatedly
