3:00 am
former white house chief of staff, has four hours to show up before congress or face contempt charges. the committee investigating the insurrection has demanded to see him and says it's done waiting. meadows' attorney issued a statement saying he would not cooperate until courts ruled on the former president's claim of executive privilege. in the meantime, that decision is now being delayed after a federal appeals court agreed to halt delivery of the requested presidential records thursday, handing former president trump his first win in the matter after a series of losses at a lower court. now a three-judge panel from the d.c. circuit court of appeals all appointed by democrats set oral arguments for november 30th. let's go now to cnn's kiera scannell live for us at the d.c. circuit court with more. cara? >> reporter: good morning, brianna. the pressure is really intensifying against trump's former chief of staff mark meadows.
3:01 am
the house select committee giving him a deadline today at 10:00 a.m. to show up with the documents and be prepared to testify as part of their investigation. now, this letter to meadows came after the white house informed his attorney yesterday that president biden would not assert executive privilege over any of these documents. that caused his lawyer to say he would not cooperate. his attorney george wilaker biden is the first president to make no effort whatsoever to protect presidential communications from being the subject of testimony. mr. meadows remains under the instruction of former president trump to respect long-standing principles of executive privilege. it now appears the courts will have to resolve the conflict. that's where this is heading. a three-judge panel of the federal appeals court here in washington, d.c. agreed to give a momentary stay or pause the production of documents from the national archives to the house committee. that is a momentary victory for former president trump, but the three-judge panel which are all democrats as you said,
3:02 am
appointed, two of them by president biden, one by -- excuse me, two by president obama, one by president biden. they say that this decision should not be construed in any way to reflect their feelings on the merits of this case. now, the issue here, of course, the former president is trying to prevent these documents, 46 documents, from being turned over. those include white house visitor and call log. also includes three handwritten memos from meadows. a lot at stake for meadows in particular. the house committee has already referred steve bannon to the justice department for criminal prosecution. we are awaiting decision on that. the question is does meadow join him. the three-judge panel timing said they will hold oral arguments on november 30. we could have a decision in early december. brianna, john? >> all right, kara, thank you so much. kara scannell. >> chief legal analyst jeffrey toobin. there are things tied together loosely. lately we're in this period of limbo. let's start with mark meadows
3:03 am
who i don't think is going to show up at 10:00 because he told us he's not going to and he could be in the steve bannon situation, which is that congress has voted him or referred him to the justice department to say, charge him with criminal contempt. we're waiting on merrick garland to decide. >> correct. and the one theme that is consistent throughout this is that time is passing. and this congressional committee does not have an unlimited amount of time. in fact, they want to wrap up this investigation at least by the middle of next year. and by not get being the witnesses they need, by not getting the documents they need, they are losing. and even though this decision by the d.c. circuit yesterday to -- was a brief delay, it's a delay. and delay hurts this committee. >> let's take these in sequence. merrick garland needs to decide what to do with steve bannon. >> correct. >> and that's enormously important for the parties
3:04 am
defying the committee at this point. frankly, i find it bizarre that the garland justice department has taken almost a month and counting to make what is really a fairly straightforward decision, which is should they prosecute him for contempt, even though he has clearly shown contempt in a literal and legal sense for the committee's subpoena. >> if they decide to prosecute him, one can reasonably assume mark meadows could be next. so one can see how this decision with steve bannon has a huge impact on everyone else. then there is the d.c. circuit court of appeals which has agreed to hear this. this was three democrats on the panel who said, hang on, the archives doesn't have to turnover the documents today, but they are going to hear the case in a much more rapid fashion. >> right. basically what they said implicitly was, if we didn't issue this stay, that would be, in effect, deciding the case. that would be saying to the archives, turnover the documents today. what they did was they issued
3:05 am
what's called an administrative stay, and the difference between an administrative stay and a stay on the merits is that the court is not saying there is any merit to the trump position. it's just that we want to hear this case. and what they did was, by court of appeal standards, this is a lightning-fast schedule. exchanges of briefs, and then an argument on november 30th. they clearly understand the time pressure here. so i have to believe there is going to be decision in early december. if trump loses that decision, they will certainly ask the supreme court to hear it which could lead to a delay of many months. >> it could, although couldn't the supreme court do it as quickly as the court of appeals? >> or they could simply refuse to hear it at all, which would make it a final decision, and the documents would have to be turned over. >> does the fact that the court of appeals is doing more due diligence, hearing these arguments, increase the likelihood that the supreme court would say, this has been
3:06 am
discussed? >> not really, i don't think. an administrative stay is everyone in the court system understands that is really not a decision on the merits at all. look, i think if this case winds up before the supreme court, the conservatives will want to hear it anyway. i don't think what the d.c. circuit did yesterday affects that calculus at all. >> again, the first likely shoe to drop is garland deciding what to do with steve bannon and other things as well, at least for the witnesses. >> the witnesses, the documents, they are not being produced and time is passing. >> jeffrey toobin, thank you. the testimony is done and now the prosecution and defense in the kyle rittenhouse trial have the weekend to prepare their closing arguments. for eight days, more than 30 witnesses, including the defendant, described what happened last year during protests in kenosha, wisconsin. rittenhouse shot three people, two of them fatally. he claims it was all in
3:07 am
self-defense. cnn's adrienne broadus is in kenosha after a very dramatic week, adrienne. >> reporter: indeed, we saw some clashing inside of the courtroom. but keep in mind, members of the jury were excused during those testy moments. and on monday when the closing arguments take place, we know the prosecution will show video clips, totaling at least 30 minutes from that night kyle rittenhouse shot three people, killing two of them. the end of the kyle rittenhouse trial likely days away, with closing arguments set for monday. >> we are going to break for the weekend at this point. >> reporter: three final witnesses testifying before the defense rested its case thursday afternoon. including media commentator drew hernandez. >> did you see, in reviewing your videos, did you see mr. rittenhouse on the 25th? >> yes, and at that point kyle
3:08 am
rittenhouse came out a car and attempted to de-escalate the situation. >> reporter: hernandez taking this video of joseph rosenbaum who is wearing a red shirt before rittenhouse shot and killed him. hernandez described rosenbaum this way. >> rosenbaum was charging kyle rittenhouse from behind. >> did you hear that real-time? >> hear it and saw it in real-time. >> reporter: and rittenhouse? >> your contact with kyle that evening was just in terms of what you observed, i'm asking. did you observe him acting in an aggressive manner to anyone that you observed? >> in no way, shape or form. the first time i saw kyle, he de-escalated a situation. >> reporter: prosecutors asking hernandez who works for a right-wing media outlet this. >> have you ever posted anything on social media -- >> yes. >> -- in support of kyle rittenhouse? >> one could argue yes. >> reporter: a use of force expert also testifying for the defense, focusing on the time
3:09 am
between the two fatal shootings when an unidentified man went after rittenhouse. >> what occurred first, the kick to the face by jump kick man to my client or the first gunshot? >> based on my analysis, the kick to the face occurred prior to the gunshot. >> reporter: the defense also asking john black about the time between rittenhouse's killing of andrew huber and the wounding of gage grosskreutz. >> 2.23 was the time between the shots. >> the total between the shooting is less than 7 seconds. >> are you asking me to put both those figures together? >> yes. >> 6 1/2 seconds. >> prosecutors pressing black how long it took for rittenhouse to shoot all three victims. >> can you tell us the amount of time that passes between the first shot of number 8 to joseph rosenbaum and the final shot to
3:10 am
mr. grosskreutz? >> 1 minute 20 seconds. >> in that approximate 1 minute 20 seconds, the defendant fires all eight shots that we see, is that correct? >> yes, sir. >> reporter: judge bruce schraeder lashing out at the prosecution for the second day in a row, this time about admissible evidence. >> is there something that i'm seeing that draws the face that you're making? go ahead, say what you want to say. >> i have to say, your honor, yesterday, i was the target of your ire for disregarding your orders. i was under the court's ire. >> what i want to talk about -- >> fundamental fairness on the issue, your honor. >> say what you want to say. >> if i'm being held to obey the court's orders, i'm asking that the defense be held to that, too. >> i was talking yesterday about the constitution of the united states and how the supreme court has interpreted it for 50 years. >> reporter: the judge also making an offensive comment
3:11 am
about the lunch selection. >> i hope the -- it's not one of those boats on long beach harbor. >> reporter: 31 witnesses taking the stand, over eight days of testimony, including rittenhouse testifying in his own homicide trial. >> there were -- there were three people right there -- >> reporter: his mother, who was also in the courtroom wednesday, was asked if she believed rittenhouse had a fair tliel during an interview. >> the judge is very fair. people that i talk to that live in kenosha all their lives, they told me that judge schroeder is a very fair judge, and he doesn't allow no nonsense in his courtroom. >> reporter: the only man to survive the shooting speaking
3:12 am
out about rittenhouse's turn on the stand. after serving as a witness himself monday. >> specifically to the defendant's testimony, i can't say that i was, one, particularly impressed, nor convinced. to me it seemed like a child being upset because they were caught, not upset because of what they had done wrong. >> reporter: and on monday the judge has given both sides 2 1/2 hours forecl closing arguments that includes rebuttal time. he will spend 45 minutes reading the instructions to the jury before the fate of kyle rittenhouse is in their hands. and, brianna, at the end of the day it comes down to whether or not this jury believes kyle rittenhouse was the attacker, or whether they saw him escalating
3:13 am
the situation by firing on unarmed men who possibly perceived him as the threat. brianna? >> all right, adrienne broadus live from kenosha, thank you. coming up, we will analyze what each side needs to do here in closing arguments. plus more on kyle rittenhouse's mother weighing in on her son's homicide trial. and also the most important job that most americans have never heard of. who will president biden pick to make key decisions on the economy. and if you're fired in iowa for refusing to get a vaccine, you may qualify for unemployment benefits. the experts at safelite autoglass came right to me... with service i could trust. right, girl? >> singers: ♪ safelite repair, safelite replace. ♪ ♪ ♪ there are beautiful ideas that remain in the dark.

3:18 am
trayvon martin case, mark o'meara. and ayesha bell hardaway. i wonder, first off, ayesha, what you thought of the mom going on fox news, going on hannity and what you heard from her? >> so it's really clear that this mom is comfortable in this courtroom. that the judge's efforts to hold court, if you will, in the way that he has throughout this trial has reassured her in many ways that her son is going to get what she deems to be a fair trial. and of course i think that equates to an acquittal here. those conversations she's been having with those particular jurists reinforces for us how in many ways polarized this trial has been. >> you know, mark, looking at
3:19 am
what legal experts are saying here, even if maybe they want to say that kyle rittenhouse appears to have a lot of blame here, they say when you look at what's happened in the court, the defense has done a good job. and right now things are looking good for kyle rittenhouse. what do you think? >> they truly are for me. pretrial rulings, to his behavior throughout. but even from the first state witness. it helped the defense. the first person who was videotaping. and all the way through, there's no question that there is an extraordinary amount of reasonable doubt here. the only thing the defense needs to do is make sure they get the jury to the jury box. the only thing the prosecution can hope is to focus on a couple of jurors and see if there is a way to miss try the case by a hung jury and a chance to try it again. >> i wonder, some of the colorful moments involving the judge, i wonder what you think
3:20 am
about them. we played one where the judge made a comment about lunch, hopefully it's not the asian food out there in long beach harbor. what did you think of that job? >> well, that joke, outside the hearing of the jury, you know, in many ways probably won't have an impact on the outcome of this trial. i've heard throughout this trial a lot of people speak to tpheus nearly 40 years of trying cases there in kenosha that, you know, it's miss his custom and practice to operate in this way, to not do sidebars and to have a very open courtroom. i would say at the point where, you know, in the presence of the jury, the judge appears to be partial and doesn't have the appearance of impartiality. and in many ways seems to be favoring one side over the other, that that causes some real questions and problems with
3:21 am
people having confidence in the overall outcome of the case. i say that primarily because, as we saw yesterday, this judge decided to open court by applauding essentially the defense's first witness for the day, dr. black, who is going to testify about the camera footage and the length of time it took for certain things to happen. in that moment where everyone is applauding for veterans day and he announces that dr. black is in fact, a veteran and apparently the only veteran in the room, that really i think sends a strong message to the jury that this judge favors the defense, and in some ways, he may end up being the head juror even if he's not back in the jury room. . >> what do you think, mark? >> wholly inappropriate. the judge has to maintain impatient. with the social implications, the suggestion by this judge that he is not going to allow
3:22 am
politics into his courtroom would be great if he could actually accomplish it. you can't when it's impwaoued in everything that's happened. you can't make believe it's not there. and he needs to be more careful to be impatient. and i haven't seen it. i like when a judge says you can't call victims victims until the crime is over. but you can't call people arsonists and looters in the same breath. so it was frustrating to me not as a defense attorney but someone watching a trial knowing the rest of the country is watching and has to believe in the jury's verdict, whatever it is. but he needs to be careful putting his thumb on the scales. . >> all of this, ayesha, kind of goes to the same point, which is if the judge in the court of public opinion, even if it's outside what the jury sees, appears to favor the defense, and then you also have kyle rittenhouse's mom going on fox news, the judge saying this is not a political trial, it's really hard to agree with that. >> yeah.
3:23 am
absolutely. on the point of the political trial, you know, he can't conflate his desire for the trial not to be political and at the same time take away the prosecution's right to attack the credibility or the motives of any particular witness based on, right, their political viewpoints or the agenda of a political party, if you will. this is really troubling. and i think in many ways, just regardless of if there's reasonable doubt here on the intentionality piece of this, it's going to cause folks to walk away questioning how an individual could go across state lines, illegally buy an ar-15 and carry it while purporting to be a medic on a particular night and walk away without some severe consequences. >> ayesha and mark, thank you so much. this is such an important case as the entire country watches. we appreciate your perspective. >> thank you. up next, new reporting on

inflation, supply chain issues, and staffing shortages are not the only challenges for business owners. in iowa, people fired for not getting vaccinated are getting unemployment benefits from the state, and business owners are footing the bill. cnn's vanessaier cave itch is joining us live. >> reporter: brianna, the federal vaccine mandate and this new state law came out within days of each other. now businesses are both trying to understand them and imply, creating confusion here in the business community. in rural iowa, sturgeon manor is the only elderly care center.

get through earlier today. the polls said they have detained all those people and sent several back into the belarusian area. >> so what is the eu and the u.s. doing to stop lukashenko? >> reporter: yeah. you know, they're really stepping up pressure. i think one of the things you can see is the eu is coming together. and the u.s. certainly playing its side as well. the u.s. said it wants to implement new sanctions against lukashenko. the european union has a two-fold strategy. it sealed off its border. it says it wants to increase sanctions on lukashenko. it is also threatening the airlines that are flying the people into belarus. a lot of them coming via istanbul and turkey, and some via iraq. there might be a small victory for the european union in this. i just got word the flagship
3:47 am
carrier and turkish carriers as well say they are not going to allow people who want to fly to belarus from istanbul onto the planes any more. that would be very important for the european union. at the same time, you do see this conflict isn't going away any time soon. you have the belarusian strong man lukashenko still threatening the european union. he threatened to cut off gas that comes from russia. we have seen maneuvers by the russian air force with strategic nuclear capable bombers over belarusian airspace. brianna. >> had fred, look, distressing pictures there. you see children there in freezing temperatures. this is very serious, these conditions. fred pleitgen, thank you. on the subject of auto kratz and not completely disconnected, vladimir putin testing u.s. with troop movement raising alarms in
3:48 am
washington. >> our concern is russia may make the serious mistake of attempting to rehash what it undertook back in 2014 when it a massed forces along the border, crossed into sovereign ukrainian territory, and claiming falsely that it was provoked. >> he is referring to crimea. joining me is professor of global politics brian klaas. who gets power and how it changes us, "corruptible." what kind of response could stop him? >> it's a great question. vladimir putin, everything about him is about power. even when we have foreign policy stories like troops a massing at the border, we have to think about what he is trying to achieve. he is trying to achieve con
3:49 am
consolidation of power. the prospect of unrest, and craiging down on journalists and human rights groups. he is trying to activate the latent impulse inside our brains to turn to strong men in terms of crises. it happens, as i explain from mid-level managers with dictoral personalities, to actual dictators. creating eyes ease is a good way to consolidate power. the key is there needs to be a strong push back from the united states to make it clear this tactic will not work and he needs to think about his foreign position not just his domestic position. >> you talk about strong men creating eyes ease. this just in, jonathan carl, white house correspondent and abc news is writing a new book called "betrayal," the final act of the trump show, which has to do with the efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election. and this week on abc, just
3:50 am
released audio of an interview that jonathan did with the former president, where jonathan asks him about the calls to hang mike pence during the insurrection and if trump was worried about them. listen to this. >> were you worried about him during that siege? were you worried about his safety? >> no. i thought he was well protected. and i had heard he was in good shape. i heard he was in very good shape. but -- but -- >> you heard those chants. that was terrible. >> he could have had -- well, you know, the people were very angry. because it's -- it's common sense, jon, it's common sense that you're supposed to protect. how can you -- if you know a vote is fraudulent, right -- how can you pass on a fraudulent vote to congress? >> the fact that he acknowledging he was getting reports of the well-being of the vice president is certainly
3:51 am
interesting in terms of the time when he was monitoring. c, what i want to focus on with you, is just the calls to hang the vice president of the united states. what does that tell you? >> i think there's a bigger picture. they are mainstreaming the threat against leaders of the united states. this is happening from the top to the bottom. school board members are facing death threats now for following public health guidance. people in town councils and so on. one of the points i make in the book is that power is magnetic to corruptible people. you can either down play that effect or amplify it. trump's comments amplify it. when power comes with the risk of violence are the worst kinds of people. the republican party is creating a party of corruptible leaders can do it. so good, decent people look at the threats and they are just
3:52 am
going to bow out. i think the story is not just about trump, january 6th. it's about the kind of leaders we're going to get if we don't push back against this violent extremism that is being mainstreamed in america right now and will have dire consequences for people who put their hat in the ring who try to become powerful in society in the future. >> in your book, how do you push back on that? >> i think there is a really important aspect where you have to think who is drawn to power. i use the analogy of a high school basketball team. the try-out is going to have taller kids than usual. with power all have power-hungry people crave power more than the average person. police departments are a great example, right? we talk a lot about what the police do. we need to think about who the police are, who is drawn to policing. as i argue in the book, you can design recruitment schemes that try to amplify the best people in society. you can fix this. this is quite an optimistic book. we can fix this. we need to think more seriously
3:53 am
who is drawn to power and how systems amplify people or keep them out of positions they have no business being in. >> there professor, i do a lot of reading. brianna knows because we talk about it a lot of time. the reaction to power grabs, the reaction to would-be auto kratz. what has history taught us about moderate or tenic reaction to that? >> it taught us it is going to make it worse. there is a ratcheting effect. it is true power corrupts. we have plenty of neuroscience research. it physically changes your brain. as i talk about in the book, this is something that means over time if you don't face consequences, accountability and oversight, you are going to get worse. so i think we need to recognize that and understand, yes, we have a self-selection problem with who is seeking power, but we can counteract that by actually doing more than a slap on the wrist when people in power behave in atrocious,
3:54 am
despicable ways like donald trump did with the comments about mike pence. >> if everyone moves on from the former president to normalize or justify calls to hang the former vice president, that's a problem. that has kwconsequences. professor, thank you for joining us this morning. >> thank you. all right. we have more on this breaking news, including the legal angle of trump getting -- saying he was getting updates about what was going on at the capitol. that could be significant. and meghan markle apologizing for misleading a british court. what she failed to tell a judge. introducing the biggest advancement in the history of small business bookkeeping. having someone else do your books for you.
