police are looking for a man in washington state who raped a woman who got in his car. welcome to early start, i'm christine romans. we start with breaking news regarding that crash. pilots flying the boeing 737 initially followed boeing's recommended emergency proceed you ares, but still unable to gain control of the jet. briefed on preliminary findings of the plane's black boxes. let's welcome in robin, live. good morning. >> reporter: hi, dave. the scenarios at "the wall street journal" reporting states the anti-stall systems failed and the pilots of flight 302 followed the emergency procedures to shut it down. they went to shut it down, from
what i can understand, the pilots recognized the problem and deactivated it. they still could not regain, from what we understand, control of the aircraft. they went back and turned it back on again. we are not sure why they did that. however, what we can tell you, if this turns out to be true, it indicates a deeper problem and perhaps the only worse thing for boeing, if the emergency procedures they put in place after the lion air crash failed, if this reporting turns out to be true, the plane continued to plunge to the ground. 157 people killed, david, in that flight, in that crash six minutes for pilots, the two ethiopian pilots fighting the plane to keep it from going into the ground. you can imagine with all the emergency sirens and warnings going off, how terrifying that
would have been. >> a lot of questions left. robin, thank you. whistleblower reports are raising questions about the faa inspectors who reviewed the 737 max planes for certification and whether they were properly trained. according to information from documents reviewed, the faa may have been notified about training deficiencies as early as august, 2015. that's two months before the first of the two deadly boeing crashes. >> an investigation is under way in how the boeing 737 max was certified to fly as prosecutors issued subpoenas as part of a grand jury criminal investigation. one being asked to turn over all communications including drafts related to the boeing 737 max. a security breach at
mar-a-lago resort. a woman carrying chinese passports and malicious software entered the facility illegally late last month. the president was staying there at the time, but was not on site. she gained access through a miscommunication with members of the resorts security detail. >> she was detained after telling a receptionist she was there for an event that didn't exist. they found four cell phones, laptop, thumb drive in her possession. the thumb drive contained ma malware. they say mar-a-lago is responsible for who is admitted to the club, and access to the president. >> a subpoena to get the full, unredacted mueller report that gives jerry nadler the green light to issue a subpoena. he has not said whether he would
do that before attorney general barr released a redacted version this month. the president says release it, but he's agitated. >> i think it's ridiculous. we are going to start the process all over again? i think it's a disgrace. anything we give them is not enough. we could give them a 400 page report, we could give them 800 pages and it wouldn't be enough. >> there's ample precedent for barr to release the full report, including grand jury material. they point to investigations in watergate and former president, bill clinton. they say barr deserves the benefit of the doubt on the report, but top democrats don't see it that way. >> the attorney general is an agent of the president. he auditioned for his job by saying this kind of investigation was wrong and the president could not commit
obstruction of justice. he got the job to protect the president. >> if he came to the job clean, without any history in this investigation, i would say yes, give him the benefit of the doubt. but he didn't. he wrote a 19-page legal memo, a job application, saying if you pick me for your ag, i will have your back on the obstruction of justice case. that's what he's done. >> they voted yesterday to authorize subpoenas in the white house probe. among those targets, robert klein. klein agreed to testify and asked not to be subpoenaed. >> today, we are going to subpoena a guy who just sent us a letter who is willing to come here voluntarily. i have been on this committee ten years, never seen anything like this. >> please. >> never seen anything like this. i haven't.
i haven't. >> we are conducting foreign relations with folks with security clearances via what's app. every day we go on without getting to the bottom of this matter is a day we are putting hundreds, if not potentially thousands of americans at risk. i mean, really, what is next? putting nuclear codes in instagram dms? >> it comes after a white house whistleblower kept 25 instances which denials of security clearances were reversed by the trump administration. the fight over health care reform. he decided to delay the repeal of obamacare until after the 2020 election. listen to what he told the national republican congressional committee last night. >> republicans should not run away from health care. you can't do it. you are going to get clobbered.
if we stay away from that subject, we are going to lose. we have the police. we have the military. we have so much. they have health care right now. we have to take that away from them. >> now have an idea why the president backed away from the health care fight after embracing it last week. several lawmakers, including mitch mcconnell directed him. >> i pointed out to him the senate republicans view on dealing with comprehensive health care reform with a democratic house of representatives. i made it clear to him we were not going to be doing that in the senate. >> many republicans would prefer to see the focus on prescription drug cost. they don't want to see a fight within the party over health care reform like the one that cost them control of the house in november. president trump calling on
house republicans to be pair noud after democratic victories were voter fraud. listen to what the president is telling his supporters. >> we are going to watch those vote tallies. i keep hearing about the election and the various counting measures that they have. there were a lot of close elections that were, they seemed to, every single one of them went democrat. if it was close, they say the democrat, there's something going on. hey, you have to be a little more paranoid than you are. we have to be careful. i don't like the way the votes are being tallied. >> that sounds familiar. the president falsely claimed in 2016 that millions of illegal votes in california, that's what cost him the popular vote. president trump appears to be backing off his threat to close the u.s. border with mexico, at least for now.
he praised mexico for doing more to stem migration from central america. the move could eliminate the move to close the border. >> i really wanted to close it. now mexico says no, no, no, first time in decades. we will not let anybody get through. they have abpprehended people a their southern border and bringing them back into the country. i said, why the hell didn't somebody do that in the first place. >> not sure the numbers are accurate. they called on congress, putting the burden to democrats to come to the table in response to the threats. >> sure, it's going to have a negative impact on the economy. hey, all you hear me talk about is trade. let me give you a secret. security is more important to me than trade.
>> on trade, here is what's at steak. the store shelves and factory stores the entire u.s. autoindustry would shut down in a week. they say every automaker depends on parts from mexico. 16% of parts used at assembly plants and sold in stores originate from mexico. grocery stores would take a hit. 90% of avocados come from mexico. $4.6 million in beer, wine, alcohol, that includes tequila, soybean and dairy farmers. meanwhile, trump's umca is at stake, the new nafta. he's signed a deal, but not approved by congress. history in chicago.

that cited people briefed on the preliminary findings. for the latest, let's go to robin, live in ethiopia. robin, this wall street journal reporting is very detailed and says these pilots did exactly what the boeing manual told them to do and still couldn't right this jet. >> reporter: indeed, christine. from the scenario "the wall street journal" outlined states pilots recognized this problem with the system that pushes the plane's nose down. they followed the emergency procedures. they turned it off, deactivated it, went to manual, a back up, but still could not keep that plane's nose up. they turned the system back on, we are not sure why, perhaps to try to follow other emergency procedures and troubleshoot further. they could not keep the plane from plunging into the ground. i want to read something a pilot
said. normally they are confident because they are highly trained for the job. simulators are where the pilot is trained. you are trained for every scenario that comes in your way. never like the flight et302. it was not in the script. the pilot should never have to fight against a plane. really tough questions are going to be asked of boeing. the emergency procedures put in place after the lion aircraft and the question everyone will ask, why was it not fixed the first time. six minutes into flight, plunging into the ground with emergency sirens and warnings going off in their cockpit, trying desperately, fighting to keep that plane from going down. unfortunately, it did, killing 157 people. enormous backlash in ethiopia, a lot of people asking tough questions. if the reporting turns out to be true, it looks to spell good
