tv New Day Weekend With Victor Blackwell and Christi Paul CNN July 27, 2019 5:00am-6:00am PDT
liberty. liberty. ♪ good saturday morning to you. i'm victor blackwell. >> hif, everyone. i'm jessica dean in for christi paul this morning. ahead of the presidential debates next week -- >> we are seeing the first hints of a more aggressive biden campaign as he takes on rival senator kamala harris and senator cory booker. meanwhile, senator warren is staying out of the fray and announcing her 1 millionth donation as she tries to make the case she can run a successful campaign without high-dollar fund-raising. but can she do it in a race against fellow progressive bernie sanders? joining us, rebecca buck.
good morning to you. this announcement, an important moment, this 1 millionth donation, it's interesting she and bernie sanders were the top earning thresholds. >> reporter: that's right. they've ruled out pretty much these high-dollar donations, closed-door fund-raisers with extremely wealthy consisten y c. there's no question elizabeth warren has quite a bit of momentum. the question going into the debates next week is can she continue that momentum and build on it? of course the other can'ts jockeying for position as well and trying to have their moment
in the sun as well, joe biden saying this week he plans on being less polite on the debate stage. that interesting moment he had with kamala harris in the first round of debates. she was asked if she was going to be polite. she said she was raised to be polite. but we've seen her be aggressive on the debate stage before. it wouldn't be surprising to see her aggressive again. pete buttigieg was asked about his approach to the take a listen. >> i'm not going to do it for its own sake but i'm going to vigorously defend what i believe in and when there are contrasts to be drawn, i'll draw them. this is about making sure the american people understand what i believe in and why my candidacy is not like any of the others. >> one of the big challenges is standing out when there are going to be ten candidates on stage each night over these two
nights. andrew yang had an interesting, novel approach to getting attention. he tweeted yesterday that he's putting the press on notice he plans on going after senator michael bennet on the debate stage. he said bennet knows what he did that sparked a humorous, fun back and forth between these two candidates. senator cory booker was in iowa. he had a home in a campaign stop where he offered to shave the heads of his supporters in exchange for money donated for charity. three people took him up on it on the campaign trail. we're not expecting any moments like that on the campaign trail with senator elizabeth warren today. she's really trying to build on this momentum, set up this very interesting matchup between her and bernie sanders. so far she has not been going after him as we've seen among kamala harris, joe biden and
core eey booker but we'll keep eye on that today for you. >> rebecca, thanks so much. >> reporter: joining me former senior aide for the hillary clinton campaign. good morning to you. >> good morning, victor. >> let's talk about this matchup between former vice president biden and senator booker. the vice president is taking incoming on the crime bill and he's put out his criminal justice reform plan. i ask you what i asked the former president of the naacp a few moments ago. is the former vice president on secure enough footing that he can now approach criminal justice reform offensively? he's now going after former mayor booker's record in newark. >> well, his competitors are certainly going to test him. i think about this as styles make fights. you know, in the first round kamala harris found a weakness in the former vice president and she exposed it. i think now the other competitors are looking for
their opportunity to expose it. you could say cory booker was looking for that moment last time around. i think the difference here is he's telegraphing his move a little bit whereas kamala harris sat on that and waited for the right moment in the debate. what the biden folks have shown you is that they're ready. they had a pretty detailed pushback already prepared for cory booker, talking about his record as newark mayor and what they also did was put everybody on notice they're not going to be beat up on, kind of like the former vice president was last time. so it will be really interesting to see whether or not the other candidates decide to back off or decide to be more aggressive with the former vice president. >> do you think it's a mistake to telegraph that punch? because if you don't land it properly, you're let down. >> i see both sides. cory booker has established a subplot for the debate, which is this battle over justice reform
will be something the moderators will pay extra attention to. that's good. but again, you take away that element of surprise. it always helpful to know where in a incoming is going to come from. >> i want you to listen and everyone to listen to former vice president biden back in may, soon after he started his campaign. >> i will not speak ill of any of the democratic candidates. i will not do it. >> i think most people were waiting for when that would expire. that may expire wednesday night on stage between booker and harris. does the democratic primary electorate need to see 2019 joe biden land a punch? because that is what lifted senator harris in the polls after the first debate and everyone's wondering what that debate of a democratic candidate will look like against the sitting president donald trump. >> what the primary audience need to see is joe biden show
some life. i do think you've seen signs of life from the biden campaign. they clearly went to school on their performance last time and licked their wounds. you've seen the former vice president has actually had more of a strategy of being a little more open with doing interviews and telegraphing he's not going to be taken advantage of on the debate stage just because he is the front-runner for all intents and purposes now. but i think that the primary electorate is looking for a can't th candidate that can stand on stage with donald trump. biden takes advantage of this issue of electability, that he can fight and counter donald trump better than anybody. you can't do that if you can't even take oncoming from your rivals like a kamala harris or cory booker. he's got to pass that test so primary voters can understand he can be that candidate. >> there's an op-ed today that says mueller's performance was bad for biden, sanders and
trump. "raising the question of a candidate's age may be insensitive but it not irrelevant," suggesting there is carryover from the criticized performance by 74-year-old robert mueller and now you have two men in their late 70s and the president 73 this year. do you think that holds water that the performance that people saw from bob mueller this week hurts biden, sanders and maybe the president? >> you can find an audience for any thought. i'm sure there are some segments of society where that's true. i think more broadly what people are paying attention to is content and what people are able to deliver. bernie sanders is 78 years old. he's probably more enjergetic than people two decades younger
than him and joe biden and donald trump are eaccepssentiale same age. the age i think is less material to what they do when they are challenged, house of representatives -- how they react. biden's problem is not his age. it that he's been slow to react and his campaign has been slow to react. that's what he's got to push back on. there is a broader generational discussion here that does not work in biden's favor. the actual number age, whether you're 60, 70, 80, that's less important than your style and show yourself as somebody that is going to fight back and push for your values. >> bernie sanders is in his late 70s standing next to 37-year-old pete buttigieg, literally half his age.
joel payne, good to have you on the show. >> thanks for having me. >> the house judiciary committee filed a lawsuit friday to get grand jury information from the mueller report. >> reporter: democrats onare gog farther than ever, admitting the investigation they are looking into on donald trump could lead to an inquiry will against him. >> reporter: is there no difference between what you're doing now and an impeachment inquiry? >> in effect, weir going to stee what remedies we could recommend, including articles of impeachment. we were not limited to that. >> reporter: arguing, quote, the committee is conducting an investigation whose purposes include determining whether to recommend articles of
impeachment. committee nadler opening threatening impeachment proceedings. >> the house must have access to all the relevant facts and consider whether to exercise its full article i powers, including a constitutional of the utmost powers, recommendation of articles of impeachment. >> reporter: while also readying a second court case to force done mcgahn to comply with his subpoena. >> reporter: you're seeing us teledpraf th telegraph that one of the remedies we have is impeachment. >> reporter: as some aare growig impeachment with nancy pelosi's strategy worried the window for starting impeachment proceeings may be closing. >> no, i'm not trying to run out the clock. let's get sof fephisticated abo this, okay? we will proceed when we have
what we need to proceed, not one day sooner. >> reporter: but pressure is growing from top deputies, like chairman nadler who has pleaded with pelosi to lean into articles of impeachment. >> we may pursue articles of impeachment, we may not. there's no point speculating on whether the speaker or anybody else will agree with our decision at that point. >> there were pentagon funds laid out for recruiting, aircraft upgrades, training afghan security forces, but now the supreme court says the president can use that money to build a border wall, dealing a win to the white house. it may only be temporary because the court battle is not only. this ruling just allows the money to be spent while the legal fight continues. that is not starting the president from declaring victory. >> coming up, president trump is downplaying north korea's new
act of defiance claiming he still has a good relationship with kim jong un, despite new missile tests. >> and the coast guard releasing this video on a high-speed chase on a boat carrying a lot of cocaine. that's next. who they're texting with, all of that. it's a win for all of us. (vo) the network more people rely on, gives you more. like plans families can mix and match, including the new just kids plan. that's verizon.

missile tests since he agreed to restart denuclearization talks. >> according to state-run media, kim jong un is calling the test, quote, a warning to south korea. president trump said it's not a setback to denuclearization talks. >> they are short-range missiles. many people have those missiles. >> joining us, gordon change, author of "north korea takes on the world" and columnist for "the daily beast." good morning. >> good morning, jessica. weep ju we just listened to president trump's assessment of north korea. do you agree? >> even short-range missiles are a violation of the resolutions and if you let them violate the
resolutions, they will escalate. these missiles target our allies south korea and they almost get to japan. by saying it's not a big deal what president trump is saying to tokyo and to seoul is they can threaten you and that's okay with me. >> short-range missiles mean more when you're within range. let's talk about what this strategically means for north korea. they say this is a warning to south korea, but what's the message to the u.s.? >> the message to the u.s. is the north koreans have not made a strategic decision to give up their missiles and their nukes. american policy under trump since the middle of may has been based that the north koreans have in fact made that decision. if they made that decision, our policy makes sense. but clearly they haven't, which means i think president trump needs go back to the policies that made him successful and those were the policies in place
through the middle of may of 2018. >> do you believe that kim jong un is getting the better of trump in this deal? he's continuing to have these negotiations and continuing to interface with the president, with the united states but at the same time continuing with these tests and all of these other different things like that. do you think he's getting the better of the president? >> since the middle of may of 2018, we've been making all of the concessions and kim has been making virtually none. this is a stark contrast where before the north koreans were making all the concessions and we weren't making any. i think we immediate to go back to a more resolute policy on sanctions enforcement and make sure the north koreans realize they have no choice but to give up their nukes. we haven't been as vigorous as we should have been this past year. >> we're prying to the may '18
footing. where do the military exercises that the president calls war games, with are do they fall in there? should the u.s. return to those with south korea? >> well, yes. in the june summit in singapore last year, president trump said he wasn't going to go forward with the major exercises we have cancelled all the major ones, foul eagle and ultra freedom guardian, but we've done the small ones to maintain readiness. on the other hand, the north koreans have continued with their major exercises are especially their winter training cycle this year, which really is massive. what we immediate to do is, yeah, okay, we can stop our exercises but the north koreans need to stop theirs as well. >> gordon chang, thanks for being with us this morning. >> thank you. >> coming up, why investigators say some good samaritans may have inadvertently helped teens

-- initially thought the teens were missing after their car was found burning on the side of the highway but two days later authorities named them as suspects, armed and dangerous. >> reporter: polo, give us an idea of the breadth of the search area. >> reporter: i can tell up at this point there's no sign that canadian police are going to scale back their search. if anything, it's going more intense. this weekend they'll be going door to door trying to track down some leads. late yesterday they released brand new video of breyer and cam, video shot at a business in meadow lake saskatchewan on sunday, about 800 miles just west of gillam where the search continues now. authorities are also looking into the possibility that these two young men could have received some form of assistance to try to essentially get out of
that area. however, authorities are saying if somebody helped them, that person or persons main not have known who they were dealing with. >> our investigators are also exploring the possibility that the suspects may have inadvertently received assistance in leaving the area. to restate, there have been no confirmed sightings outside of the gillam area. >> reporter: that's rcmp made very clear, because of that they have put out that brand new surveillance video hoping that someone may recognize them and may have come forward because they are running out of laefds here based on what we're getting from authorities. they have confirm ld they do have two kwob operated sightings, the latest one happening on monday in the town of gill yam but authorities are working with possibility,
