4:00 am
in charleston. i did it. certainly a lot to unpack with you this morning. welcome to saturday. i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. one of the oldest, most revered rivalries in college football kicks off this afternoon. guess who is there? one mr. coy wire. >> it's a balmy 29 degrees. we'll hear from some of the players. one of the cool traditions. new uniforms for the game. i'm not sure whose are cooler, since victor blackwell is already playing fashion police this morning. and yes, my decisions are questionable. >> it's just the hat. we'll get to that in a moment. let's get to president-elect donald trump offering a stunning rejection of u.s. intelligence after reports that russia
4:01 am
meddled in the election to help trump win. >> this after president obama orders a full review of russian-related hacking. overnight, an infamous intelligence flop is being offered up as evidence. >> his team says these are the same people that said saddam hussein had weapons of mass destruction. this threatening to fuel an early feud between the top u.s. agencies and the white house. we're getting new reaction from moscow. >> we have a team of cnn reporters and experts standing by to have these conversations. we begin with christen holmes. she's outside trump tower for us. what are you hearing from new york this morning? >> reporter: good morning, christi. repeatedly during the election, president trump praised vladimir putin. it became quite a topic on the last debate.
4:02 am
his opponent calling him a puppet, saying russia wanted him to win because he could be a puppet. it's important note that this is not the first time donald trump has dismissed claims of russian hack. earlier this weeblg in a "time" magazine interview saying he didn't think russia had anything to do wit. it could have been them, could have been china. could have been someone in new jersey. i want to pull um the statement. it comes from the office of the transition. it reads, these are the same people that said saddam hussein had weapons of mass destruction. the election ended a long time ago in one of the ig best electoral college victories in history. it's now time to move on and make america great again. what is important to note is trump is basically mocking, essentially insulting the intelligence community. these are people here to give him the presidential daily briefing. inform the president of the
4:03 am
united states of national and security issues. something we have not seen before. we've reached out to the white house for comment on the latest remarks. we have not heard back. we'll keep you posted on that. it is unprecedented to see someone attack the -- the intelligence community set up to keep americans safe here on our home front. >> all right. kristen holmes, thank you. let's say good morning to jill dougherty. and errol lewis. jill, what are you hearing from the kremlin? >> well, both from the kremlin and from the foreign ministry. they're both saying essentially prove it. dmitry peskov, a spokes person for president putin says there are no new conclusions here. looks like they have no evidence to be blamed on. and he's also saying that it looks as if it's another attempt
4:04 am
to influence the incoming president. with a bad impression about russia. and then the same thing coming from the foreign ministry. in fact, the spokesperson saying, look, we have asked the united states to provide this information. they haven't done it. and so, again, prove it. but, as we have been doesing, it would be very difficult for the united states to say precisely how it got the information. it could compromise sources and methods and ways that they get this information. >> they would have to disclose far too much to explain all that. let me come to you, errol, with this three-sentence dismissal, essentially, of the u.s. intelligence community from the trump tans six team. no signature here. it's not pinned to a specific person. is this reluctance to accept the findings of the intelligence xhoou community limited to russia?
4:05 am
or will this show a bigger rift? >> this is the first important foreign crisis of this incoming administration, that's my sense of this. they'll have to do much better than an unsigned kind of flippant dismissal of information. other sources have chimed in with the same theme and theory. for the first time in over 100 years, the head of mi-5, the british intelligence service, went public and talked at length about subversion, espionage, cyber attacks coming out of russia. they're alleged to have hacked the german parliament. this is a shadow war, analogous with the cold war. this is not fought back with press releases opinion unless this transition team, soon to be administration, gets really really serious, they're going to beover womened by events.
4:06 am
>> errol, let me stay with you. if donald trump is not going to listen to the advise or the findings of the cia, do we know who he's listening to? he hasn't offered any support for this refuting claim that russia was not involved. he said maybe it's china. maybe it's some guy in new jersey. maybe it's some guy who is 400 pounds, he said in the debate. but no support. who is he listening to? >> we have to make sure we're always, with donald trump, interpreting his words the way they should be interpreted. when donald trump says it's not important, it means he's going to have a problem if those facts turn out to be true. that's fine. it's pure political speech. >> jill, let me come back to you. i want to ask you "the new york times" reporting on rex tillerson who is potentially,
4:07 am
according to their reporting, at the top of the list to take the job of secretary of state. the president and ceo of exxon-mobil. we found part of a conversation of mr. tillerson talking about his relationship with russian president vladimir putin. let's watch this. >> my relationship with vladimir putin, which dates back almost 15 years now. i have known him since 1999. i have a very close relationship with him. i don't agree with everything he's doing. i don't agree with everything a lot of leaders are doing. but he understands that i'm a businessman. and i have invested a lot of money. our company has invested a lot of money in russia. very successfully. >> so their relationship goes back some period. he understands he's a businessman. this could be a windfall for putin, especially when you compare tillerson to a mitt romney who has been very
4:08 am
critical of putin. back to the 2012 election. >> there's a theme emerging. business deals. i mean, the way the trump administration seems to be coming out with the idea of foreign policy is let's do a deal. essentially everybody can do a deal. and it doesn't quite work that way in the world. now, i have to say, here in russia, there are a lot of people who share that belief. president putin may very well share that real politic idea that you can just make a deal. it's a lot more complicated. if that is the approach, it would be a very different way of dealing with american foreign policy. >> and we may be having the conversations if tirlson is the pick about moving from the private sector to the federal government that we're having about donald trump and some of those challenges separating himself from his business dealtings. we may have those conversations
4:09 am
about tillerson as it relates to russia. to qatar. >> no one could have as complicated a business life as donald trump. so i would be surprised. we'll find out if tillerson has holdings and deals and investments and hedge funds and everything else. i suspect he'll have a didn't kind of a problem. i mean, jill put her finger on it. a foreign policy is not just a series of deals. it includes things like values. it includes things like treaty obligations. things like strategic moves to make sure freedom is expanded around the world. things that don't necessarily lend themselves to the bottom line type calculation that business people are used to. >> errol lewis, jill dougherty, we're just starting to have conversations about rex tillerson. a lot of names were on the list. they tell us romney is still on.
4:10 am
giuliani is off. we'll examine this throughout the morning. thank you both. >> thank you. well, next, the disturbing confession of an accused mass murderer. dylann roof, admitting to the fbi he purposely murdered black church goers to propel his ideology. it's being called a military miracle. an air force fighter pilot's replains returned to his family, ten years after his death. >> i have been waiting for that homecoming for ten years. and i got it. they think that it's sad.
4:11 am
i think it's important for everyone to know that there is so much more to memory support than the stigmas you hearabout. that these residents still have lives and their lives still matter and that they are still living their lives. that they're not locked away and that they still have a lot to live for, you know, that they have people that care about them and they have people that love them and i love them, so (laughs). call now to find out how we can put our 30 years of understanding to work for your loved one today.

fighter pilot who died ten years ago protecting american troops in iraq. over the years, the u.s. military was only able to recover some of his remains. now, the rest were found and returned to his family. barbara starr reports the family is finally getting some what others call closure. >> i love you. >> i love you. >> reporter: chandra gilbert ravella has been an air force windowco for a decade. ten years after her husband, troy gilbert, died, his body is coming home. >> i've been waiting for that homecoming for ten years. i got it. >> reporter: a heartbreaking ten years during which troy's body was used in propaganda videos. then, call to her in august. >> he said troy's been found. and i was um -- i was blown
4:23 am
away. >> reporter: this summer, an iraqi tribal leader approached u.s. forces in iraq. his tribe had the flight gear and body of troy and they wanted to give it back. his f-16 crashed on november 27, 2006. at the time, u.s. special operations forces on the ground were in imminent danger. >> he was single handedly taking out the enemy. and saving our guys. >> reporter: general david goldfing, currently they had of the ire force, headed the investigation into gilbert's death ten years ago. >> he was so e intensely focused on taking the tart out. savoring american lives, that he didn't give himself enough road for the recovery. >> reporter: ginger served this photo. it's an image taken from a drone watching the battle just 30 seconds before he crashed. >> you can see him in this right here. >> reporter: the investigation found gilbert was flying low. using his guns to make sure he

4:27 am
and reduces the risk of them happening again. yes, eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. both made me turn around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily ...and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis the right treatment for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you.

welcome back. so good to have you with us on a saturday morning. i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. so good to start the day with you. >> good to have you back. >> good to be back. this morning, president-elect trump waking up in new york. he'll be heading to the army-navy game this afternoon. while he's there, he'll meet
4:30 am
with mike pompeo. a day after he dismissed the findings of the intelligence community that the russian government was behind cyber attacks during the election to specifically help trump win. >> the statement came after president obama ordered a full review of hacks going back to 20088. meanwhile, the secretary of state still ongoing. rudy giuliani is out. according to "the new york times" donald trump may be seriously considering rex tillerson, the exxon-mobil ceo. trump just tweeted this. rudy giuliani just took himself out of consideration for state. cnn learned that giuliani was told this week he would not get the job. new this morning, the government just averted a shut down. they funded the government through the end of april. the 66-33 vote just before a
4:31 am
midnight deadline when the government could have run out of money. >> reporter: democrats took a funding battle to the brink last night. nearly shutting down the government in a fight related to coal miners' health benefits. it was included in the bill to keep the government past the friday midnight dead lynne until april 28th. there's a four-month extension of the health benefits. democrats wanted a year-long benefit. all day long, behind the scenes, led by governor joe manchin, they wanted to drum up support. they were unsuccessful to get enough democratic support to side with them. a lot of other democrats had oir priorities. another complicating factor, the house has left town.
4:32 am
leaving the senate with one option, accept the package or shut down the government. it's a step too far for a lot of democrats. this was the first big post-election fight for democrats and republicans, especially for the democrats who struggled to win over white, working class voters. some believed pushing on the coal miner health plan could help them with a key constituency that has been voting for republicans. manu raju, cnn, washington. let's go to ohio. anti-abortion rights activists are claiming victory. two bills were passed. >> one would ban abortions after the heart beat could be detected. the latest would ban the procedure after 20 weeks. backers say this is a sign of a new america under donald trump. opponents are planning to fight it. >> everyone is watching ohio governor john kasich. as the bill sits on his desk. here's courtney unifrom wcmh.
4:33 am
>> we live in a state whose motto is, with god, all things are possible. >> reporter: that's what janet porter says. they did everything they could to make sure the heart beat bill passes. now she hopes the governor will sign the bill into law. >> i think it will take internal vigilance for us to make sure he maintains his pro-life promises. as passes the bill to protect babies whose heart beats can be heard. >> whose choice? >> my choice. >> reporter: a protest erupted outside the governor's mansion. >> not the church, not the state, women must decide our fate. >> reporter: protesters argue abortion before viability is a constitutional right. >> this is a horrible attack on ohio women. this blocks access to a safe and legal abortion procedure. >> reporter: gabriel man with pro choice ohio says the next step is to challenge the bill in
4:34 am
court. >> the u.s. supreme court rejected an appeal to preserve north dakota's. so ohio legislators are signing up the tax payers for a very expensive court battle they'll probably lose. >> reporter: porter believes it will be upheld. >> i think we have brand-new day here in america. and, we're going to see a brand-new supreme court with pro-life justices. by the time this law gets to the supreme court, i'm confident it will be upheld. >> joining me to talk about this, joey jackson, cnn legal analyst. thank you so much. as you saw, both sides saying look, they're looking forward to victories in higher courts. how far do you think this will go? how do you see it playing out? >> well, christi, good morning. i think it will go very high. now, just taking a step back, of course. the law's always based on precedent. since roe v. wade in 1973 said
4:35 am
woman has a right to choose. and 19 years later in 1993, it said the states could restrict abortions, but you can't unduly burden a woman. the major concern is not what the current appointee, what happens when we get a new appointee. we know it's 4-4 for the supreme court. and justice scalia who is conservative, he died, as a result, it's 4-4. we know donald trump will replace him with someone conservative. the concern down the road, christi, is who else donald trump appoints to the court. i would take a look at someone like anthony scalia, excuse me, someone like kennedy on the court, who has really been pro abortion, or at least a swing vote. he'll be 80. i would look at ruth bader ginsburg. she's over 80 and liberal. depend foing on the mix of the
4:36 am
court, it could change. the law is what the supreme court says it is as the end of the day. we could point to precedent. ultimately, if the course reverses that long term, we could see a major shift. i think that's what emboldening states like ohio opinion. >> there is one of the most restrictive. banning it at the moment a heart beat is detected is at about six weeks. do you see other states falling suit? >> we have seen this before. in arkansas, they tried to pass such a measure. it was rejected as unconstitutional. as we saw in the piece, north dakota attempted the same thing. gn that was rejected, too. conservative justices were there, but it didn't make to it the supreme court level. justices said, you know what, the law is what it the.
4:37 am
we're bound to follow precedent, regardless of our personal views. but again, i think, ultimately, this ohio bill, i do believe, as it goes through the channels will be declard unconstitutional, if the governor science it and it becomes law. long-term, in the event you get two conservative appointees on the supreme court, you could see a seismic shift. and planned parenthood versus casey. when can a state restrict abortion? liability? when you are detecting? sit a heart beat flow that is deemed viability? or are they going to adopt some other measure? we're not there yetd. we're far from it. i don't have immediate concern that the court is going to change or women's rights to choose are going to change. but long term, if we get into two justice appointees and a
4:38 am
republican president, we should expect a shift. >> governor kasich has had misgivings about previous attempts to pass heart beat bills. kasich sid on several occasions in the past two years, he opposed the heart beat bill because of constitutional concerns. so, joey, i mean, he's hinted. that this may not withstand legal challenges. really at the end of the day, what do you think? >> i think, as it's currently constituted, i don't think that this bill, the heart beat bill, if cow can detect a heart beat at six weeks, that that will carry the day. i do believe it unconsistent nugs nal. arkansas struck down same kind of law. north dakota struck down same such law. there's a new level of commitment. looking long term, if there's a shift in the supreme court,
4:39 am
which really says what the law is, then you have a better chance long-term for something like this to see the light of day. not only in ohio, but other states to follow. and so it will really depend on not on the immediate appointment. we should alert everyone that all donald trump will be doing is replacing antonin scalia. he was conservative. very anti-abortion. he's been on the court. it's been what it's been. women's right to choose. if you get another appoint tooe, like kennedy, who is a swing vote but supporting a borgs rights. or ruth bade er ginsburg retiri, you have changes. women continue to have the rights and abilities to make decisions about the most personal things and aspects of their life. >> joey jackson, always appreciate your insight, sir. thank you. >> thank you. let's talk about beefing up
