tv Early Start with Christine Romans and Dave Briggs CNN September 25, 2019 2:00am-3:00am PDT
nancy pelosi officially launching an impeachment inquiry against the president. the president is accused of pressing the ukrainian president to investigate joe biden at the same time military aid was be withhe withheld. this sets up a fierce battle. pelosi resisted impeachment calls for month but she now seems to believe necessity outweighs possible political fallout in the 2020 election. >> the white house is expected to release two key documents to slow democratic momentum. as early as today it will release the whistle-blower complaint. they'll put out the call. unclear how much we'll see before joseph maguire appears before the house committee tomorrow. adam schiff says the w
whistle-blower wants to speak to his panel. more now from manu raju from capitol hill. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, christine and dave. house speaker nancy pelosi finally got behind the idea of moving forward with an impeachment inquiry after democrat after democrat in her caucus called for the impeachment inquiry to begin, at least to move forward. >> the actions of the trump presidency revealed the dishonorable fact of the president's betrayal of his oath of office, betrayal of national security and betrayal of the integrity of our elections, therefore, today, i'm as nowing the house of representatives is moving forward with impeachment inquiry. the president must be held accountable. no one is above the law. >> the straw that broke the camel's back was the complaint by the whistle-blower as well as
the substance of the allegation, the president himself talking on the phone with ukrainian's president. she said that's one reason why -- the major reason why we need to move forward. at the same time what does that actually mean. she's saying six committees have already investigated on capitol hill. they'll decide whether to move forward with the article fs of impeachment. if so they'll move forward and the full house would vote but only to remove him from office you ontario need two-thirds of the majority of the united states senate, which is unlikely to proceed. so this process could take a few months. speaker pelosi says she wants this to be done expeditiously. it's a historic move since the
president himself would be only the third president in american history to be impeached by the house. back to you. >> thank you. the groundswell for impeachment is rapidly growing in the house. 196 democrats now back an impeachment inquiry. that's 83% of the members, an increase of 50 in a single day. a good number of the holdouts were democrats in swing districts. the ukraine whistle-blower fallout for john lewis was simply the final straw. >> i have been patient when we tried every other path and used every other tool. we will never find the truth unless we use the power given to the house of representatives and the house alone to begin an official investigation. >> democrats said they hope to have it concluded by the end of the year. this is the last week in session for the house before a two-week
recess. yeah. obsessed with impeachment. that is how president trump is trying to paint democrats after speaker pelosi's announcement. the president's campaign team releasing this dramatic video less than 30 minutes after pelosi's announcement. cnn has learned it was prepared weeks ago. the campaign's communication director said, quote, we were ready in case the democrats were that dumb, and they were. former vice president joe biden following nancy pelosi's lead going further than he has so far on impeachment. >> if we allow a president to get away with shredding the united states constitution, that will last forever. if he continues to disrupt congress and flautd the law, donald trump will lead congress
no choice but to lead to impeachment. that would be a tragedy of his own making. overnight more extensive reporting from the "washington post" detailing just how the president's personal lawyer rudy giuliani pursued a shadow ukraine agenda while key foreign policy officials were neutralized. the timeline involves the abrupt removal of the u.n. ambassador to ukraine, senior officials being circumvented, and the suspension of hundreds of millions of dollars in aid. >> several officials describe tense meetings on ukraine and national security personnel with some stating the president was prepared to gain leverage with political gain. it will be interesting when president trump and president zelensky meade at the u.n. today. let's bring in matthew chance live there this morning.
matthew, good morning. what's the reaction there? >> reporter: the reaction has been pretty muted. he basically said, look, i can't be pressurized because i'm president of an independent country. there were brief comments he made in relation to the telephone scandal that the ukraine finds themselves sucked into. they want to keep a good relationship not just with the current u.s. president but future u.s. presidents as well and they hate the fact they've been sucked into this american political drama because they feel it undermines them in their confrontation with russia. diplomat ukly they're trying to get back crimea which was annexed in 2014. this was reiterated by the foreign minister i spoke to earlier. he said this whole scandal is handing a victory to the creme
limb. >> definitely open champagne, yeah, definitely. >> why? >> for them, it's the best way to drive a wedge in the unique -- by unique, i mean bipartisan support for ukraine. so now, you know, the russians should be -- should be crazy happy about that. >> do you hold the president trump of the united states for driving in that wedge? >> no, but -- >> well, he's the one who made the request to investigate joe biden. >> firstly we still have to find out the facts. but we also, remember the position, during the jug7 summi and to get the russians back, they would deliver on nothing. for me, look, you'd not make america great again by letting
putin feeling better. >> well, the ukrainians had hopes they could focus on strategic issues between the two countries. the fact is we're expecting a transcript of the controversial call in question to be releasinged later today. it seems like that is going to be overshadowing this meeting between these two leaders. >> it just may. matthew chance live in crew crane this morning. again, in the words of the diplomat, they should be crazy happy and opening champagne. the latest on brexit. parliament is back in session after the supreme court ruled the suspension was unlawful. cnn is live with the latest next. about the weather is it's unpredictable. so we make the most of it when the sun does shine. that's why bp is partnering with lightsource, europe's largest solar company.
and should the weather change, yet again, our natural gas can step in. to keep the power flowing and the lights shining. no matter the forecast. at bp, we see possibilities everywhere. to help the world keep advancing. the in-laws have moved in with us. and our adult children are here. so we save by using tide. which means we use less. three generations of clothes cleaned in one wash. anybody seen my pants? #1 stain and odor fighter, #1 trusted. it's got to be tide. i'm about to capture proof of the ivory billed woodpecker. what??? no, no no no no. battery power runs out. lifetime retirement income from tiaa doesn't. guaranteed monthly income for life. nooooo!
woman: i'm here, and suddenly my migraine takes me somewhere else, where there's pain and nausea. but excedrin pulls me back in a way others don't. and it relieves my symptoms fast for real migraine relief. i felt i couldn't be at my best for my family. in only 8 weeks with mavyret, i was cured and left those doubts behind. i faced reminders of my hep c every day. but in only 8 weeks with mavyret, i was cured.
even hanging with friends i worried about my hep c. but in only 8 weeks with mavyret, i was cured. mavyret is the only 8-week cure for all common types of hep c. before starting mavyret your doctor will test if you've had hepatitis b which may flare up and cause serious liver problems during and after treatment. tell your doctor if you've had hepatitis b, a liver or kidney transplant, other liver problems, hiv-1, or other medical conditions, and all medicines you take including herbal supplements. don't take mavyret with atazanavir or rifampin, or if you've had certain liver problems. common side effects include headache and tiredness. with hep c behind me, i feel free... ...fearless... ...and there's no looking back, because i am cured. talk to your doctor about mavyret.
two-thirds and two-thirds and.wr the supreme court declared in a historic ruling that prime minister boris johns's suspension of parliament was unlawful. he's flying back early from the u.n. general assembly. let's go live and bring in melissa bell. hi, melissa. >> christine, it's overstated to say what a blow it was to the prime minister and to the brexit strategy that the supreme court would deliver such a stinging rebuke and that the mps can get back to work as though nothing had ever happened. this was his response in new
york last night. >> we respect the judiciary in our country. we respect the court. i disagree profoundly with what they had to say. >> reporter: now, it was a fairly unrepentant response in its tone, and that's what we expect to hear from the british prime minister after he lands back in london. whether he's going to face those who just came back from suspension, who get back to work in over an hour's time. they're going to be even more angered and tie his hands so he can't continue with that ambition of heading toward the deadline with the possibility of a no deal brexit. it was partly why he decided to suspend parliament for such a long time. he can no longer do that. what you can expect to see are very angry m.p.s coming back and
making sure he does not crash it. the is a weakened london. >> weakened boris johnson. thank you so much for that, melissa bell in london. in a short while hassan rouhani will speak after president trump tore into his speech tuesday. >> no spobsable government should subsidize iran's blood lust. as long as iran's menacing behavior continues sanctions will not be lifted. they will be tightened. >> let's go live to tehran and bring in fred pleitgen. >> reporter: they certainly are saying that under these circumstances they're not going to be willing to speak with the united states and certainly not with president trump himself.
it was quite interesting to see in president trump's speech for the first -- the largest part of that segment on iran, that he absolutely ripped into iran saying he was definitely going to tighten sanctions and not loosen the sanctions. but in the end there seems to be maybe sort of an olive branch to iran and said the u.s. does not plan to seek further adversaries and will wait to embrace, leaving the chance there may be some sideline meetings. iranians for their part are saying it's absolutely not going to happen. hassan rouhani gave an interview last night. he believes that right now president trump has taken away any sort of possibility of direct talks between these two countries, whereas the iranians for their part in the past few days say there might be circumstances where they would be willing to speak to the united states. but they say they want sanctions relief first. it's quite interesting.
the french right now making an effort to get the two sides together. president emmanuel macron says if president trump and hassan rouhani don't talk, it will be a missed opportunity, dave. >> i wonder if he gave a preview where he told chris wallace wherever america has gone, terrorism has expanded in the wake. it will be interesting to see. fred, thanks so much. we'll shift gears and talk a little sports. the washington nationals punching their ticket to the postseason with an old friend bryce harper and the opposing dugout. carolyn manning with the "bleacher report." that's next. >> good morning. e of emotions like... the relaxing feeling of knowing you're getting the best price. these'll work. the utter delight of free wi-fi... . oh man this is the best part. isn't that you? yeah. and the magic power of unlocking your room with your phone. i can read minds too.

we are less than a week away from the major league baseball playoffs, and the washington nationals punched their ticket with two big wins yesterday. >> and carolyn manno is here this morning. hi, carolyn. >> what a season. here they are. the postseason begins officially next tuesday. we still don't know exactly who is in and who's out. seven teams are fighting for spore spots entering last night.
there are only three remaining. nationals and phillies playing a doubleheader. the nats took game one, down 4-2 in the nightcap with trea turner at the plate, gets ahold of one in a big way. way out of there. grand slam for turner. 18th homer of the year for him. but this is up there for the hit of his career as he vaults the nationals into the postseason, and you know what this means. if the champagne tasted a little sweeter than normal, it's probably because the gnats also eliminated their division rival the phillies from postseason contention which includes bryce harper who signed with philadelphia for $330 million before the start of this year's regular season. down in tampa, a pair of jungian keys fans had a night they'll never forget. not only did they get to meet

he is politely requested that september 24th be known as national gritty day from here on out. >> hold on. was there anyone there? >> i think he had a bodyguard with him for safety's sake. >> there's no children because they would have been terrified. >> no children there. >> if nobody throws you a birthday party, you throw one for yourself. >> i like that, gritty. carolyn, good to see you. a historic moment by nancy pelosi with impeachment inquiry after president trump tried to dig up dirt on joe biden according to a whistle-blower.

impeachment inquiry. this was at the very same time military aid was being withheld on the president's orders. this set us up a fierce battle between the house majority and a president who has fought oversight at every turn. pelosi resisting impeachment calls for months but she now believes necessity outweighs possible political fallout in the 2020 election. >> as early as today the white house the rwill release the transcript of the telephone conversation. joseph maguire will appear before the house committee tomorrow. chairman adam schiff says he or she wants to speak their mind to the panel.
more from manu raju. >> reporter: good morning, christine and dave. after months of infighting, house speaker nancy pelosi finally got behind the idea of moving forward with an impeachment inquiry after democrat after democrat in her caucus called for the impeachment inquiry to begin, at least move forward. >> the actions of the trump presidency revealed the dishonorable fact of the president's betrayal of his oath of office, betrayal of our national security, and betrayal of the integrity of our elections. therefore today i'm announcing the house of representatives is moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry. the president must be held accountable. no one is above the law. >> now, she made very clear that what was the straw that broke the camel's back was the complaint that was issued by this whistle-blower and the president's handling of it as well as the substance of the allegation, the president himself talking on the phone with ukrainian president, that
becoming the sh sreason why she seized the moment to move forward. she said the six who have been investigating on capitol hill including the house judiciary will continue their investigations and will decide on whether to move forward on the articles of impeachment. if they do, they'll move forward to impeach the president and then the full house. but to remove him from office, you only need two thirds of the majori majori majority, which is unlikely to proceed. this process could take months. nancy pelosi wants it done expeditiously. it's a symbolic but historic move since the president would be only the third president in
american history to be impeached. back to you. >> the groundswell for impeachment is growing in the house. 196 democrats now back an impeachment inquiry. that's 83% of the members, an increase of 50 members in a single day. now, a good number of the holdouts were democrats in swing districts and close allies with speaker pelosi. but for many like civil rights icon john lewis, the ukraine blowout was simply the final straw. >> i have been patient while we tried every other path and used every other tool. we will never find the truth unless we use the power given to the house of representatives, and the house alone to begin an official investigation. >> democrats said they hope to have an investigation done by the end of the year. this is the last week in session for the house before a two-week rece recess. obsessed with impeachment, that's how president trump is trying to paint democrats after
speaker pelosi's announcement. and the president's campaign releasing this dramatic video less than 30 minutes after pelosi's announcement. cnn learned it was prepared weeks ago. the campaign manager said, quote, we were ready in case the democrats were that dumb, and they were. former vice president biden going further than he has ever before on impeachment. >> if we allow a president to get away with shredding the united states constitution, that will last forever. if he continues to obstruction congress and ft. lauderdale the law, president trump will leave congress no choice but to initiate impeachment. that would be a tragedy, but a tragedy of his own making. >> several of biden's 2020 democratic rivals said they believe congress should take up
full impeachment proceedings. overnight more extensive reporting from the "washington post" detailing how the president's personal lawyer rudy giuliani pursued a shadow ukraine agenda while key can foreign policy officials were neutralized. senior officials being circumventeded and hundreds of millions of dollars in aid. >> several officials describe tense moments on ukraine. it should be an interesting visual when president trump and the ukrainian president zelensky meet at the u.n. today. approached by russian tv tuesday, zelensky said nobody can put pressure on me. joining us this morning is brian stelter. we'll start with you. given the timing here, the
transcript we believe will be released today and the white house is prepared to release the entire whistle-blower complaint, they say. after two years of wavering, why now? >> it's been a head-spinning week. e feel for the viewers at home, in the last 48 hours, what a difference it makes. democrats at home were under increasing pressure. i spoke with a house speaker who said, look, the people holding back the dam were starting to buckle one by one. 50 in the past 24 to 48 hours. the answer here is there's been a long list of impeachable conduct that's been piling up for two years, but they believe this ukraine story is more understandable, digestible, and easier to explain to the public and now they're going to go out and explain why they're doing what they're doing. we know president trump is a master manipulator with his base. not the country but his base. now they need to know how do it with theirs. >> i love it.
they had a video ready to go in 30 minutes. >> i think in kind of a clear sense we now know what the next year is about. we know what the next 13 months is about. it's going to be about this fight. this country is already traumatized. >> it will test the skills of nancy pelosi to get americans on board and explain to the american people why they're pursuing this and why it's important for the constitution and moral fabric of this country, if that's the case she's going to make. this is what the "new york post" said this this morning, impeaching to the choir. it says this. isn't that what they've already been doing? there have been six committees investigating along these lines already. she hasn't called for a vote for impeople. but this finalizes and formalizes that this will be an impeachment inquiry, right? >> yeah. it felt like a very big moment when she announced they would be
holding these inquiries, but when you dial down what exactly is happening, she's really doing this way without a vote. they're going to have to get on the record about this, those few democrats who are still waffling on it and previous impeachments have had bipartisanship in supporting the impeachment inquiry in the case of bill clinton and richard nixon. it's important the way she's spreading the wealth across all six of these committees, sort of de-emphasizing the judiciary committee, although they would ultimately draw up the articles of impeachment. they're going to can't to go forward and she's sort of holding the lions in her party who really want to go forward with this at bay while they do this more formal process. i think brian makes a great point. are there going to be any more
public committee hearings or is it going to defuse. >> they want to d o it quickly, expeditiously, by the end of the year. is that reasonable? >> they have taken on average around 180 days. i don't know. we'll have to see. they have gathered the evidence already. >> clinton took 127 days. we're 130 days away from the iowa caucus. brian, it comes down to this question. what is -- what are high crimes and misdemeanors? this is an interesting interaction on fox news. their expert lead analyst judge napolitano said this. >> it is a crime for the president to solicit aid for his campaign from a foreign government. >> so that would be -- that to which the president has admitted is in and of itself a crime.
>> yes. >> rudy giuliani said he, too, pressed ukraine officials to investigate biden at the direction, he says, of the administration. is that a crime? >> if that was done in order to enhance the president's reee lelkz campaign, yes. >> your reaction to the fox news legal analyst saying the president has already admitted to a crime. >> to crimes. it's striking because elsewhere people are constantly being told there's no evidence of this, in fact, the crime son the biden sigh. the white house is going to try to get back on the offense by releasing documents, the transcript. this white house lost the benefit of the doubt a long time ago when it comes to releasing accurate information >> i'm going to be looking for both republicans and democrats in congress to be affirming what was released. they want to see this whistle-blower complaint in full. >> we've already seen the
president's supporters who say democrats are wanting impeachment. here's kevin mccarthy. listen. >> i realize 2016 didn't turn out the way speaker pelosi wanted it to happen, but she cannot change the laws of this congress. she cannot unilaterally decide on an impeachment inquiry. >> but, zach, this is not about that. >> obviously bill clinton was impeached after he was re-elected. so was richard nixon. so this is sort of happening in a very political way. is this going to be a distraction from what democrats really want to be talking about heading into the election, that we always thought they wanted to talk about health care, although, they're sort of split on that. they wanted to talk about climate change and all these
things that motivate their base voters, but i think what they started to find is the issue of impeachment was also motivating their voters and they couldn't turn their heads anymore to it. >> it's not just about 2020 but decades to come. what is standard behavior, acceptable behavior for a president. >> it's interesting that nancy pelosi has been so reluctant thus far. i wonder if that helps her or hurts her as she shepherds this. >> the claim has been she's putting on a show so when it comes to this -- they say she knows what she's doing. is she, again, hitting the brakes today. is this impeachment light because there isn't a vote in the house? >> the president has long
believed that impeachment is good for him. >> i think democrats in particular really need to level-set what they expect to come from these proceedings. do they expect to be able to impeach donald trump? i think there's a really good chance they have the votes in their party to do that at the end of the day. would they have the chance of pulling president trump from office which is their ultimate gain? no. i don't think 20 senators are going to flip on trump in the senate unless we learn something we don't know today. so they need to be ready for impeachment possibly to succeed. >> and they still need 22-plus in the house, so a long, lodge way ahead. >> brian, zach, nice to have you on board. another interesting day. 44 minutes past the hour. a new vaping ban as states try to curb an epidemic. we'll tell you where. come on.
