tv   Early Start with Christine Romans and Dave Briggs  CNN  March 29, 2019 2:00am-3:00am PDT

2:00 am
with ridiculous [ bleep ]. >> president trump in full attack mode in his first rally since he was cleared of collusion. i have overridden my people, we're funding the special olympics. >> the president will keep funding for the special olympics after his education secretary spent two days backing up the proposed cuts. and no shortage of madness, one seed barely hangs on and two seeds are headed home. i'm jessica dean. welcome to "early start." >> haech friday. i'm dave briggs. it is march 29, 5:00 a.m. in the east. we start with breaking news this morning in the boeing investigation. according to the wall street journal, preliminary findings show a stall prevention feature.
2:01 am
that is believed to be the same sensor that brought down a lion air flight last october. let's bring in robyn kriel with the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dave. as you said, this preliminary report coming out of from what we understand a high level faa briefing. double edged sword really for boeing. at least it is the same system that failed in both cases so it is the mcas system failing. but they will have to answer many questions about why they didn't take care of this after the first lion air crash that killed hundreds of people. but at the same time at least it is not another problem with the plane. so a double-edged sword there for boeing. eight americans were killed on this flight, 157 people killed in total from 35 different countries. good news though for ethiopia airlines if this does intends turn out to be true because it will vindicate the pilots if it
2:02 am
does turn out to be the mcas system failure because it will likely not be blamed then on pilot error. but as you say, the preliminary report. it could take up to a year we understand for the final report to be released. >> robyn kriel live for us in ethiopia. thank you. some democrats are refusing to move on from clufollusion ano too is the president. here he is from his first rally since he was effectively cleared of collusion. >> after three years of lies and smears and slander, the russia hoax is finally dead. the collusion delusion is over. the democrats have to now decide whether they will continue defrauding the public with
2:03 am
ridiculous -- partisan investigations or whether they will apologize to the american people. >> adam schiff still maintains there was collusion even if the special counsel could not prove it beyond a reasonable doubt. he is facing full throated attacks from republicans on his committee. >> your willingness to continue to promote a false narrative is alarming. findings of the special counsel refute your past and present assertions and have exposed you as having abused your position. we have no faith in your ability to discharge your duties in a manner consistent with your constitutional responsibility and urge your immediate resignation as chairman of the committee. >> my colleagues may think it is okay that the russians offered dirt on a democratic candidate for president. but i don't think it is okay. i think it is immoral, i think it is unethical, i think it is
2:04 am
unpatriotic and, yes, i think it is corrupt. and evidence of collusion. and the day we do think that is okay is the day we will look back and say that is the day america lost its way. >> republicans certainly disagree with schiff's claims but at least one person on the president's favorite network agrees with him. >> i think that congressman schiff is correct and in that report will be evidence of the existence of a conspiracy. not enough evidence to prove the existence beyond a reasonable doubt. >> the mueller report is 300 plus pages. so far we've only seen that four page summary from attorney general barr. democrats are demanding the full release of the report by april 2, but the primary obstacle is the presence of grand jury information. >> jerry nadler offered to bar the opportunity to work together
2:05 am
to get a court order to release the grand jury information. an aide to natdldler says barr open to nad ear suggestion. a federal judge striking down a trump administration rule that allows small businesses to band together to set up health insurance splan plans to skirt the requirements of the affordable care act. the judge calling it a clear attempt at an end around. the justice department now considering all of its options before responding. >> republicans on capitol hill growing anxious hoping for guidance from the white house on obamacare alternatives, but so far crickets. and after a failed repeal effort in 2017, mitch mcconnell wants no part of this fight. he says i look forward to seeing what the president is proposing and what he can work out with the speaker. so what is the president proposing? >> we're working on a plan now,
2:06 am
there is no very great rush from the standpoint that we're waiting for decisions in the court. >> no very great rush. vice president pence's chief of staff said the opposite just the day before. >> the president will be putting forward plans this year that we hope to introduce into congress. >> it's been an eventful week for efforts to tear down obamacare. monday the justice department reversed its position and said that the entire affordable care act should be struck down. wednesday a federal district court judge blocked the administration's efforts to allow states to impose work requirements on medicaid recipients. funding for the special olympics will continue now that the president says he is overruled his education secretary. betsy devos spent two days on capitol hill defending the decision even though she said she wasn't personally involved in making it. >> let's not use disabled
2:07 am
>> madame secretary, eliminating $18 million out of an $80 billion budget i think is shameful too. >> devos went on to say the special olympics already gets a lot of private donation that the federal budget is tight but after she made the case, president trump publicly undermined her. >> i've been to the special olympics. i think it is incredible. and i just authorized a funding. i heard about it this morning. i have overridden my people. we're funding the special olympics. >> shortly after the president's comments, devos issued a statement saying i'm pleased and grateful that the president and i see eye to eye on this issue. it is funding i have fought for behind the scenes over the last several years. devos proposed similar cuts in previous years. she did donate a portion of her salary last year to the special olympics. the "washington post" has
2:08 am
uncovered documents that allegedly show president trump frequently exaggerated his assets while he was a businessman. the "post" reports trump would hand out documents outlining his finances and assets, the accuracy of those documents coming up at michael cohen's hearing just last month. >> did the president ever provide inflated assets to an insurance company? >> yes. >> just some of the highlights from this report -- mr. trump said name sake tour has 68 stories, it has 58. he claimed he owned a vineyard. land records show about 1200 acres. and mr. trump said he had 55 home lots to sell in southern california when records show he had 31. that is a $72 million difference in revenue. no comment from the white house nor the trump organization. the city of chicago is demanding jussie smollett pay $130,000 for the police investigation into his alleged attack. he was indicted for staging a
2:09 am
hate crime against himself in chicago. but all charges were are dropped this week. >> given that he doesn't feel any since of contrition or remorse, my recommendation when he writes tcheck in the memo section he can put the word i'm accountable for the hoax. >> prosecutors insisting their case was solid even after the charges were dismissed. >> president trump is calling for a federal review on twitter. neither the fbi authorize doj have said that they will do so. >> that case is an absolute embarrassment to our country. and somebody has to at least take a very good hard look. >> the i willinois prosecutor b association says dismissal of the case is abnormal and unfamiliar. in another twist, office for the top prosecutor kim fox now says she did not formally recuse herself from the smollett investigation. her office saying that she only

caution. the embattled ceo of wells fargo tim sloan is stepping down. sloan has worked at wells fargo for three decades and says the company would benefit from a fresh perspective. the bank's board plans to replace him with an outsider. wells fargo has struggled to overcome a litany of scandals. in 2016 there was national backlash over employees creating millions of fake accounts to meet sales quotas. and wells fargo admitted charging borrowers for auto insurance they didn't need and mortgage fees they didn't deserve. ahead, the uk was supposed to leave the european union today. instead they will forvote for a third time on a deal that has failed twice. we're live at 10 downing street next.

2:31 am
were on board that flight ethiopia airlines et 302, eight americans were on board. all of them perished in that crash. and i spoke earlier to a family member who is still out here waiting to hopefully take the remains of his brother back to israel. i asked him how he felt knowing that potentially the cause you was this mcas failure. and he said while it was good to know the cause, it ultimately does not bring his brother back and they are still devastated. just in terms of what this means for boeing, perhaps a double edged sword because on one hand at least at the know what the problem is, that it is this mcas system that failed pushing the nose down as pilots were trying likely to fight to keep it up. but at the same time at least it is not another problem, so at least they have identified the problem. ethiopia airlines we spoke earlier to one of their press people, they say they are in a high level meeting, they didn't say what it was about, but we
2:32 am
can only assume that it is likely about this faa news that was the -- that the "wall street journal" reports occurred last night. and also the minister of transport saying a few days ago that they did notice that there were these similarities from the preliminary report from the lion air crash and the ethiopia air crash. >> robyn kriel for us in ethiopia, thanks so much. some democrats refusing to move on from collusion and so too it seems is the president. here he is at his first rally since he was effectively cleared of collusion. >> after three years of lies and smears and slander, the russia hoax is finally dead. the collusion delusion is over. the democrats have to now decide whether they will continue defrauding the public with
2:33 am
ridiculous -- partisan investigations or whether they will apologize to the american people. >> hope your kids aren't up at 5:30. if so, we too apologize. the mueller report has 300 plus pages. so far we've only seen a summary from attorney general bill barr. politically appointed. the primary obstacle to getting it released in full is the presence of course of grand jury information. >> cnn has learned jerry nadler offered barr the opportunity to work together to get a court order to release the grand jury information. an aide to nadler says barr is open to nadler's arguments but is still a far cry from where the chairman is right now. >> let's go live to washington and bring in your reporter for the "washington post."
2:34 am
good to see you, sir. so this adam schiff back and forth is where we are clearly headed over the question of was there actual evidence of collusion. all nine republicans in the house intel committee signing a letter calling on schiff to resign. and there was this back and forth yesterday. we have no faith in your ability to discharge your duties in a manner consistent with your constitutional responsibility and urge your immediate resignation as chairman of the committee. >> my colleagues may think it is okay that the russians offered dirt on a democratic candidate for president. but i don't think it is okay. i think it is immoral, i think it is unethical, i think it is unpatriotic and, yes, i think it is corrupt. and evidence of collusion. and the day we do think that is okay is the day we will look back and say that is the day america lost its way. >> okay. so a reminder.
2:35 am
we have not -- none of those republicans nor democrats have seen the mueller report. they have seen a four page summary by a politically appointed attorney general who called it fatally misconceived, the obstruction argument there. so where are we headed? >> we learned during the course of the mueller investigation that there were a number of links between the trump campaign and russia. we learned about the meeting in trump tower with donald trump jr., the president's campaign manager and son-in-law and russian lawyer offering dirt on hillary clinton. so can expect when we finally do see the full report that it will have more information that not necessarily exonerates the president and his campaign from any wrongdoing even if they were not able to establish a criminal conspiracy. as adam schiff said, there were a number of comments that make it very questionable as to why the president's campaign was spending so much time working with russian officials, talking with russian officials, exchanging information with russian cutouts. and i think that is something that the democrats want to continue to talk about and
2:36 am
continue to investigate even if the mueller investigation did not establish a conspiracy. so the idea that the president says that the russia investigation is over and that collusion delusion is finally dead, that is not exactly what we'll see. not only are we going to see the president sort of talking about it and trying to sort of claim victory on this issue for several weeks if not months to come, but we'll also see democrats continuing to push on this issue, continue to turn over different types of information to find out what the president's campaign was doing, why they were in touch with so many different russians. and even if there is not a criminal conspiracy, representative schiff wants to find out whether there is any compromise, the president may be proper xriz compromised by the russians. >> and you'vele written about the latest turn in the health care debate. we have president trump saying now that he wants to become the party of health care. and this taking people --
2:37 am
republicans on the hill quite by surprise. typically we would see the president working with people on the hill, with lawmakers, to make sure that this is all rolled out in a very carefully planned way, especially something like health care. this seems though quite chaotic. is that the impression you're getting? >> definitely very chaotic. this is a president who has a slogan on health care but doesn't have a plan. and that took a lot of republican senators by surprise that the president even wanted to pivot to health care because they saw the losses that the republican party experienced in 2018 in large part because democrats were campaigning on the issue of health care. republicans have been campaigning against obamacare for nine years but they don't have a specific plan how to repeal it. and they spent the last two years trying to do that. they tried in 2017 and they failed and a lot thought they finally moved on from the idea. and now the president wants to jump back into this battle.
2:38 am
he feels that it is a promise he hasn't been able to fulfill from his campaign, but he doesn't have a plan and its has become a political grenade where republicans in the senate is saying the white house should come up with the plan, the white house is saying the republicans in the senate should come up with the plan. no one wants to actually touch the issue but the president wants to campaign on it. >> i checked bill cassidy's twitter feed and he has a tweet about a limited edition beer koozie that they are selling, but nothing about a health care plan. what they would like to continue to talk about is the economy and of course immigration. the president's signature issue which took an interesting an ugly turn late last night in grand rapids. listen. >> they are all met by the lawyers. and th following phrase. i am very afraid for my life. i am afraid for my life. okay.
2:39 am
and then i look at the guy, he looks like he just got out of the ring, heavyweight champion of the world. he's afraid. it is a big fat con job, folks. >> so asylum seekers, some fleeing domestic violence, gang violence and many in fact fleeing for their lives is a big fat con job. what is your reaction to that and will the strategy of demonize and divide continue to work for this president? >> this has been the president's strategy for the past two years. it hasn't necessarily worked electorally as they did suffer a big loss in 2018, but it also doesn't line up with the facts. the majority of people coming across the border illegally are families. this includes a lot of young children, their mothers trying to flee the violence and trouble that they experience in central america. and i don't think that anyone else in the president's administration is saying that all of these people are sort of trying to con the american public and that they aren't facing dangers within their
2:40 am
countries. now some of them believe that the asylum process has been taken advantage of and that the laws need to be tightened up, but the idea that all of these people are just walking and leaving their countries just because they want to con the u.s. government is not something that is widely believed by people who follow this issue very closely. so the president is sort of isolated on this issue. he believes that it is a strong issue for him for 2020, but it hasn't really -- we haven't really seen that in the elections that we've seen since 2016. >> and won michigan by 11,000 votes. will that expand on that number? time will tell. good to see you, sir. the city of chicago now demanding jussie smollett pay $130,000 for the police investigation into his alleged attack. he was indicted for staging a hate crime against himself in chicago but all charges were dropped this week. >> given that he doesn't feel
2:41 am
any sense of contrition and remorse, my recommendation is when he writes the check in the memo section he can put the word i'm accountable for the hoax. >> prosecutors insisting their case was solid even after charges were dismissed. >> president trump calling for a federal review on twitter. neither the fbi nor doj have said they will do so. >> that case is an absolute embarrassment to our country and something has to at least take a very good hard look. >> the illinois prosecutor bar association says the dismissal of the smollett case is abnormal and unfamiliar. in another bizarre twist, the office for the city's top prosecutor kim fox now says that she did not formally recuse herself from the smollett investigation. her office saying she opt separated herself from decision making out of an abundance of caution. one woman, two wombs, three children. all less than a month. that story coming up next.
