tv   CNN Newsroom With John Berman and Poppy Harlow  CNN  January 10, 2018 6:00am-7:00am PST

6:00 am
i am john berman. >> i am poppy harlow. the administration blasting a judge for blocking. the president sticks to a bottom line demand for a wall after oscillating a lot in that meeting yesterday. >> the judicial order came overnight throwing things into turmoil just after the president's 55-minute public display of competency, so what feat of strength comes today. >> reporter: it is fascinating, john. it certainly adds a level of uncertainty to the tug-of-war over the d.r.e.a.m.ers. it's only temporary and, by the way, the justice department, the trump justice department is
6:01 am
standing by its assuretion the order for daca that was put in by president obama was a circumvention of the powers of the united states congress and they say they will continue to litigate over this issue. very interesting also that the executive branch in this case is advocating for the powers of the legislative branch, and that's where we are. we have more of that on a statement from the ruling from white house press second sarah sanders this morning. we find this decision to be outrageous, especially in light of the president's successful bipartisan meeting with house and senate members at the white house on the same day, and an issue of this magnitude, she says, must go through the normal legislative process and adds that the president is committed to the rule of law and is going to work with members of both parties to reach a permanent solution that correct the
6:02 am
unconstitutional actions taken by the last administration. this fight apparently is going to go on, and the ruling from the west coast is only temporary, john. >> joe, it's interesting, sarah sanders says this meeting yesterday was successful. successful in what? do we now know what the president wants on immigration? >> reporter: no, it's muddy and murky right now. as you might remember the president did seem to back off a bit from what he said on the campaign trail about a wall all the way along the southwest border, suggesting there will be places where it's not needed, and then he came back and tweeted something completely different. what we do know are the administrations priorities, that's enhancing border security and ending chain migration and ending the diversity visa process he talked so much about, and also protecting the
6:03 am
d.r.e.a.m.ers. a big part of that is protecting the d.r.e.a.m.ers, which is something democrats want as well and the wall seems to be the big sticking point. >> joe johns at the white house, thank you for that. with us now, our national security and legal analyst, susan hennessy. in this judge's ruling, a federal judge from california, rescinding daca -- rescinding the trump move on daca, calling it arbitrary and capricious, and also talking about what this judge says, it's broad and sweeping across the united states and not just northern california. what does this mean for daca? legally where does this thing go? >> this is just a preliminary injunction and it's the first step that prevents the executive branch from recenting daca while the underlying issues are litigated. it's more of a pause. the government will almost certainly appeal that preliminary injunction so they
6:04 am
could get the temporary pause reversed in the near future and win on the merits. this is the legal affect here is certainly temporary and the entire sort of legal question might be mooted if the legislature reach as solution in the interim. >> it's a more political question than a legal question, but you can make a case this removes the urgency as long as this judge's order is in place, it removes the urgency for congress to do anything, so protection for d.r.e.a.m.ers existed at this second? >> yeah, that's one way to think about it. the alternative read is this is going to be keeping it in the headlines, and if there's going to be on the ongoing litigation, every time a new order was issued that was headline news and it did push this narrative that maybe the president would rather not be a headliner front page news so it's possible this could have the opposite affect and keep this front and center
6:05 am
in a way that mounts more pressure on wanting a legislative solution and certainty for these many of hundreds of thousands of individuals. >> don't go far, we will come back to you in just a moment for more legal advise. me meantime, joining us is our cnn political correspondents. it was a victory for transparency. >> 54 minutes of cameras. >> beyond that, two key questions, right? what does it accomplish legislatively and what does it prove? what did it accomplish in terms of hammering out a deal for d.r.e.a.m.ers? are we any closer to a deal? >> i think one could argue that we are not. if anything, you see how far apart the two sides are. i think what you do see is a lot of ambiguity of where the president stands. the president comes to the table saying we will make it work and
6:06 am
at times seems to align himself more with democrats and then you see mccarthy saying, you don't understand, i don't think mr. president what fieinstein is saying is a clean bill, and he says i do understand. you said the president wanting to show that he is mentally sound, i think, the timing can't be ignored and also the president really wants a deal. >> let's listen to that exchange. let's play it. >> i would like to ask a question, what about a clean daca bill now with the commitment that we go into a comprehensive immigration reform procedure? >> i think that's basically what dick is saying, we will come up with daca and then start immediately on the phase two, which would be comprehensive -- >> mr. president, you need to be clear, though. i think what senator feinstein is asking here, when we talk about just daca, we don't want to be back here two years later
6:07 am
and you have to have security as the secretary will tell you. >> i think that's what she said. >> no, she is saying something different. >> kevin mccarthy said you need to be clear here, mr. president, and we know from the reporting the goal of the meeting was, of course, getting something done legislatively, and also according to our jeff zeleny for the president to grab the microphone and clearly display his competency, grasp of the issue after his mental fitness was called into question by michael wolff's book, "fire and fury." did he do that? >> no, you can see it on display right there. the idea of the president being on different sides. a portion of that was not included in the white house transcript of that meeting. kudos to them for opening this up and giving us a window into how president trump operates, but they should also be honest in how they district transcripts. you can see on display president trump and his lack of knowledge
6:08 am
on some of the policy details and some of the intricacies of immigration policy, which these senators and members of congress have been involved with for a long time. you saw them sort of republicans step in, but everybody left the meeting unclear of where president trump actually is on this, which is kind of what the whole meeting was about, to get clarity on how to proceed particularly on the more imminent question of the daca situation and they left the meeting with more muddle over how to proceed. >> it's no small thing, right? the clean daca question is no small thing. it's not an ancillary part of the discussion but the central part. the president had to have kevin mccarthy tell him what he thought, no, no, mr. president, that's not what you think and this is what you think, and it was remarkable and maybe counter to what the white house was trying to display.
6:09 am
and the other theme is the idea expressed he has no view on any of it. he said i will sign what you all bring to me in this room even if i don't love it. that, too, a very interesting stance. >> yeah, interesting and also a problem for congress and for the president who wants to pass his agenda. the prevailing wisdom among members of congress is the president will say -- when you are in a meeting with him -- what he thinks you want to hear and then days or a couple weeks later take to twitter, and he did that with the obamacare compromise, and he did that with democrats when he dined with them last fall to talk about the d.r.e.a.m.ers. bottom line, a year into his presidency trump does not have a working relationship with congress. they have had to figure out how to work with him and around him.
6:10 am
i don't see how the president tries to leverage congress to get what he wants going forward if they can't trust his word. >> let's switch gears here, guys, because there's new reporting that white house aides and high ranking folks inside the cabinet and white house have been told to make your decision by the end of the month about whether you are going to stay or leave. and zeleny is saying that includes two big names, the white house counsel, and mcmaster. he's not saying they are going to leaf bve but it's an open question. if they left, what impact would that be? >> john mcgahn has been mired in the russian investigation. i am not sure how much weight he brings to the table.
6:11 am
mcmaster is a different element. mcmaster is a huge part of the administration's foreign policy initiative. for better or worse, he held on to some of the conventional foreign policy views this country has had towards north korea and towards iran and what have you. aside from just these big names leaving, i think a bigger question is the vacuum that it holds. you don't have a huge bench who is going to come in and fill these spots. i have not heard a name that could replace general mcmaster. he and the president have not seen eye to eye on many issues, but for better or worse he held on some stability. >> an interesting point. you use the word vacuum. and there's a case a vacuum already existed in the white house. doug high, our friend who wurpbged for republicans for a long time said there are people unwilling work in the white house and a lot of people in the white house are not willing to have come in. is there anything that could
6:12 am
change that problem? >> the question is how do you fill these types of positions when there has been turmoil and turnover in the first year. you think about the cast of characters around the president at the start of the administration and most of those people have left. i think heading into the second year, and into a pretty important year ahead of the midterms how they fill those positions, because as doug eludes to and as we hear all around washington, people being approached and declining and they are not interested in working for the white house, so how they fill those positions that open up and those that are still vacant, there's a lot of vacancies as john eluded to, not only in the white house but in the state department and other various aspects of government that they are having trouble recruiting for. >> and that, in itself, and i don't mean to interrupt, it's stunning. that would be a great thing to add to your resume, and you
6:13 am
would have job offers after serving in the administration, and here people view it as a true liability. >> like any job you weigh the pros and cons, and right now the trump administration has a lot of cons to working for them. it's in turmoil and it's historically unpopular and they don't seem to know where they are going, and the additional legal and financial implications if you work for this white house and robert mueller wants to talk to you, you have to lawyer up and pay that out of your own pocket. right now cons are outweighing the pros. >> we appreciate it. breaking news. hundreds of people waiting to be rescued this morning in california. the deadly mudslides and the flash floods have already killed 15 people. remarkable images. 300 people are stuck in their homes and rescuers cannot get to them. it's so bad officials say they have no idea how many people might be missing.
6:14 am
paul is in phaupb smontecito. >> reporter: there's active search and rescue still going on and this is what they are ruckening with. an unimaginable in some ways debris flow. wood mixed with trees and mixed with parts of windows, brick, houses, sofa. these houses side by side about a mile north of the ocean here in montecito. as you pointed out, john, in another part to the northeast of me, romero canyon, and first responders saying these people sheltered in place because nobody could get to them because of enormous boulders and as we have seen time and time again, these trees that just seem to cause huge barriers, walls, if you will, so when that sun comes up they are going to start at daybreak rescuing or taking out people via helicopter. it's been an amazing thing to see in person, not far from me
6:15 am
is the major artery, the 101 freeway. it's completely shut down. mud, cars stopped, surf boards and everything mixed together here. just a little to the north of me, this water came cascading off the ashy hillsides, and it's as if it hit a slip and slide straight down and over ran a creek and then turned streets into rivers. further up the road, houses completely ripped off their foundation and that's some of what we are seeing right here. back to you, john, poppy? >> thank you. those images are stunning. please bring us more as the sun comes up. we have a lot ahead, including the president sending a message on daca, making it clear they will take it up to the higher courts. the president, he will take your radio show and your tv gig you didn't have now, and that's certainly how it seems as steve bannon is out now.
6:16 am
also, did the investigations into russian meddling just implode. no outrage over the release of a closed-door testimony -- ten hours of testimony about that dossier. does protecting the environment only matter in red states? the white house says it's okay to drill for oil off the u.s. coast, just not the florida coast after the republican governor of florida cries foul. to most, he's phil mickelson pro golfer. to me he's, well, dad. so when his joint pain from psoriatic arthritis
6:17 am
got really bad, it scared me. and what could that pain mean? joint pain could mean joint damage. enbrel helps relieve joint pain, and helps stop further damage enbrel may lower your ability to fight infections. serious sometimes fatal events including infections, tuberculosis, lymphoma other cancers, nervous system and blood disorders and allergic reactions have occurred. tell your doctor if you've been someplace where fungal infections are common. or if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores, have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure or if you have persistent fever, bruising, bleeding or paleness. don't start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. since enbrel, dad's back to being dad. visit and use the joint damage simulator to see how your joint damage could be progressing. ask about enbrel. enbrel. fda approved for over 14 years.

6:21 am
of bricks where you are up there, manu. >> yeah, it infuriated grassley, who said by doing this it would undermine the investigation going forward. according to the transcript from the co-owner of fusion gps, and he defended his decision to hire christopher steele to investigate trump's business background and according to mr. simpson, mr. steele was so alarmed about what he found out about contacts between russia and trump associates and all the like that he had to go to the fbi to inform the fbi about what he found back in the summer of 2016. according to this transcript, simpson says this. chris said he was very concerned about whether this represented a national security threat, and he said we were obligated to tell somebody in the government about this information. he thought from his perspective
6:22 am
there was a security issue about whether a presidential candidate was being blackmailed. in addition to this, simpson also testified that somebody in the fbi had essentially believed what steele was saying because of an inside source, a trump campaign source, who had been giving them similar information. we have since learned that source referred to an australian diplomat passed information about the former trump campaign adviser, george papadopoulos, and discussions he had with the russians, and papadopoulos has since pleaded guilty of lying to the fbi about the contacts with the russians. at the same time both republicans and democrats on the committee are reacting to the release of this transcript with one democrat, chris coons, telling me yesterday this could effectively end the bipartisan investigation going forward. >> i think it's really unfortunate that the majority
6:23 am
and minority on the judiciary committee really have come to an impasse in terms of being able to make progress. i think in some ways this is the signal in the end of bipartisan cooperation in the judiciary committee. >> and they were concerned about about how two have lied to the fbi about his contacts with the news media back in 2016, and they are asking the justice department to investigate that. >> susan hennessy back with us. as you have gone through this transcript, what is your main takeaway in terms of what open questions does it leave, and what holes, what blanks does it fill in? >> we should keep in mind the representations, it's hearsay,
6:24 am
it's like the dossier itself. what is pretty apparent and sort of strikingly apparent in the tr transcripts is the look that there are two separate investigations, and that really is baring out two different lines of questioning. >> simpson tries to make clear that his mind was that christopher steele went to the fbi only after he had concerns from the investigation that he uncovered. you bring up the congressional committees. are they broken right now? we hear coops saying the judiciary committee is done because they are at an impasse, and house intel is in a mess, and where does that leave congress caring about the russian meddling?
6:25 am
>> what we have seen one by one in various committees, initially there was bipartisan commitments to have an investigation to get to the bottom of things and we saw that in early january and february, and one by one they have fallen apart. that means the investigation may be coming to a close soon. you know, really the last man standing here is the ssci, and they continue to sort of try their best to maintain that sort of partisan cooperation in a sense of hey, look, our job is to get to the bottom of this to inform the american people, you know. we will see what happens if these other -- it appears the partisanship and the other committees has unified the ssci and they are committing to trying to have the last man standing here.
6:26 am
>> the senate select committee on the intelligence is the ssci. so the viewers no. >> do you think there's merit to chuck grassley, to his argument that, you know, a big reason why he didn't want this transcript of glenn simpson's testimony released because he said that will make it more difficult to bring other witnesses before the judiciary committee voluntarily? >> it's unusual for a vice chairman like dianne feinstein to yomake a transcript public. it's possible for a witness to decide in advance that they want the transcript to be made public and that's a condition carter page made, and so in this case simpson was actually calling for the transcripts to be released and he was doing so after he felt the majority mischaracterized the nature of that engagement and his
6:27 am
statements. whenever grassley says it's going to make it harder to bring in witnesses in the future, and usually they do have that if they release transcripts over their objection, and in this case the witness himself is asking for the transcript to be made public. how that would affect somebody like jared kushner moving forward, it's hard to understand the logic. >> and then any legal grand to stand out here to sue buzzfeed, and does he have a high burden to disprove the claims in the dossier? >> malice standard is a high standard and it's going to be a difficult case. that said, buzzfeed did make a decision that most other media organizations -- all other media organizations decided not to. lots of outlets had the dossier
6:28 am
and decided not to publish it. this is a very high standard, however that was a really controversial decision to public the dossier and we will see what happens. one of the most interesting things is that now buzzfeed gets discovery. michael cohen is going to have to produce documentation, potentially communications with the president. new developments in morning in the ongoing odyssey of steve bannon. the president's one-time chief strategist -- oh, that feels like a long time ago, pushed out, stepped down from his post at breitbart after the public feud, the rift with the president. >> the relationship has been unraveling for a while but it really unravelled last week with the release of the book "fire and fury," and then quoted as saying he lost it, and taking aim at the president's family
6:29 am
members. look, i mean, this shows us, right, what happens, can happen when you cross the president. >> right. i don't think that bannon quite realized exactly what he had done when he made those comments to wolff. i told you last week there were three things bannon had going for him, and one was his proximity to the president, and he lost that. the other one was the backing of the mercer family, mega donors, who were funding his endeavors and he lost that, and the one thing he had remaining was a perch at breitbart news and he lost that. it's unlikely he could stay relevant in politics, actually. >> and sirius xm cancelled his radio show, and fox news puts
6:30 am
out something that we are not going to hire him. what is steve bannon, without a home, what does he do? >> that's not clear. people talking to him might say that he is still going to articulate his message and try fighting stuff on immigration going forward, and it's not clear what he's going to do. it's a big change for breitbart. breitbart over the last few years has been defined by steve bannon, and it's his platform and an extension of him. that's going to be interesting. i am told there's an old staff phone call later this afternoon with the editor in chief from breitbart and they are curious what it looks like for the publication moving forward. >> great to have you with us. great reporting. congress told by the president that he will sign whatever they bring him, whatever immigration deal they

6:35 am
immigration negotiate kwraein the works in congress bg but not going that well. an aide said the outlines being considered right now wouldn't get half the support they need in the senate, let alone the house. >> of course you need half to pass in the senate. important. joining us now, democratic senator, tammy baldwin of wisconsin. thank you so much for being with us. there was a big bipartisan meeting at the white house
6:36 am
yesterday. cameras were allowed in. 54 minutes, this free-willing discussion. glass half full. is the fact that the discussion happened and we were allowed to see it, is that a positive development? >> i think it is a positive development. i talked to several of my colleagues in that meeting, and while they describe the situation as a little surreal and some of the things said by the president were more than a little contradictory, i think the fact that they are focused on the d.r.e.a.m.ers and recognizing that is the urgent situation. the d.r.e.a.m.ers have known no other home than america and they need to have our action in order to come out of the shadows. there was bipartisan commitment to that at that meeting and elsewhere in congress. certainly those negotiations can involve some of the border security issues, but that is,
6:37 am
you know, keeping our promise to the d.r.e.a.m.ers has to be the lead priority. i am hopeful we can get it done. >> sounds like maybe you are more open than some of the fellow democrats to giving what the president and other republicans want, a wall, border security. joe manchin said he would be okay with funding for a border wall as long as experts weighed in and said that's the right move, et cetera, in order to protect the d.r.e.a.m.ers. are you onboard for that or are you against even a dollar for this wall? >> i think we should be able to talk about border security in the context of passing the d.r.e.a.m. act and doing right by the d.r.e.a.m.ers. the wall, as the president has described it at times is actually ridiculous. we should be talking about infrastructure, our crumbling
6:38 am
roads and bridges across america with the dollars where he is talking about a wall. just yesterday there was a pretty good report about how his intention to build a wall on the southern border would take resources away from time-tested security technologies on the southern border. we should be talking about border security but not the wall. >> so to be clear, yesterday he said, you know, and you are right, he has changed his position, and his position has moved from time to time on that issue, and he said yesterday, the most recent statement is it doesn't need to be a 2,000 mile wall because there are mountains and -- >> 700 -- >> he said nature. you are open to the idea of increasing border security, so it sounds like you may be open to language where democrats could say we are providing money for border security and later on the president can say, hey, look, we have money for border security that we are using to build a wall in some places.
6:39 am
that would be okay with you, yes? >> there are walls already in some places. let's not ignore the facts on the ground. i think the negotiations that are occurring in the house in a bipartisan manner and in the senate in a bipartisan manner have always included a focus on security, but we also know we are in an urgent situation right now with regard to the d.r.e.a.m.ers. the president rescinded the daca protections last year. time is of the essence. a promise was made to those d.r.e.a.m.ers, those young people who have known no other home other than the united states of america, and we need to make good on the promise and need to do it now. >> let me ask you about your re-election campaign. as you know there are folks spending a lot of money against you, and new reporting showing $3.1 million against you, and
6:40 am
more than anybody else in your position and other states at this point, and super pacs pouring in another 11 million to fight your re-election, and you think about how tough the battle could be for you in wisconsin, what is your reaction? what also all the talk about oprah maybe running for president. would you want somebody like oprah to come and campaign next to you? >> well, oprah is a daughter of milwaukee, wisconsin. we are so proud of her inspiration for so many, and her life's work. she's done incredible things during her career, so i like many others was deeply moved by her speech the other night. that said, i know there's a lot of talk about 2020 and her future, but as you suggest in your question, i am very much focused on fighting for
6:41 am
wisconsinites and in the context of my re-election, in some ways i am not surprised by the outside spending because we know the special interests have taken an interest in getting rid of me. why? because i am not afraid to stand up to them on behalf of the hard working people of my state, and whether that's the pharmaceutical companies jacking up the cost of life-saving drugs or the folks fighting my efforts to create buy america and hire america policies. i am not at all surprised that they have taken note and it's not going to silence me. i will continue to fight for wisconsin's hard-working people in the senate every day. >> the buy america point -- we have to wrap it up, but that's something you and president have agreed on, that legislation, and you want him to move quickly on that. >> i do and the infrastructure package we are expecting from the president, i think buy
6:42 am
america and hire america should be the centerpiece and that's what i will look for. >> we appreciate it. thank you. >> thank you. days after the administration revealed its new offshore drilling plan, one state's republican governor says, no, not here, and the administration says, okay. is that going to work in other states? when did you see the sign? when i needed to jumpstart sales. build attendance for an event. help people find their way. fastsigns designed new directional signage. and got them back on track. get started at

6:47 am
this happened last week, the allowing of the drilling and it was overshadowed by other news, and now florida says we don't want it so they don't have to do it? >> that's right. that's the case right now, and off the top of last week ryan zinke proposed rolling back a ban of offshore drilling on the coast of florida and california. you are looking at a map there of all the areas that would be impacted. they are also considering allowing leasing on more than 40 sites for natural gas and oil production. again, you are looking at the map there. zinke had not finished making his announcement when the florida governor asked for a meeting to discuss concerns about the plan. fast-forward to last night and we now have reporting that zinke now says that he will remove florida from that list of coastal areas where they would
6:48 am
have this drilling, that will no longer be the case. he said i support the governor's position that florida is unique and its coast are heavily reliant on tourism as an economic driver. that's zinke's words, and other republican governors are saying not in my backyard and they are saying they want the same treatment that florida just got. the question is will the trump administration give equal consideration to all other coastal governors, whether they are from republican or democratic states? >> i will note in addition to the democrats, the republican states you mentioned, massachusetts has republican governors. >> as you bring up the point, is this all politics? many believe rick scott, you know, the president has been pushing him to run for senate
6:49 am
and this makes him look good if after the meeting all of a sudden the policy changed for florida. a little politics -- a lot, i should say, probably, as well. >> renee, thank you very much. this is just what everyone needs, more of tom brady on your screen. a new sort of reality show coming from inside the home of tom brady, and this is everything we ever wanted and more. now you can join angie's list for free.

all right. chairman of the senate judiciary committee, chuck grassley,
6:54 am
furious that his democratic counterpart released a key transcript that he did not want out there from some of their testimony. let's listen in as manu raju just caught up with him. >> -- requested that the transcript be made public? >> uh, yeah. and i think he's probably a little surprised about some of the conclusions people are going to derive from it. i think if you -- if you want to know about, for instance, collusion with russia, all you've got to do is refer you to the twitter of browder, you know, as one example, to show how that was the case. >> so is jared kushner off the hook then? >> no. no, not at all. >> do you think you'll continue to be able to work with senator feinstein in a bipartisan way on this going forward? >> of course. >> reporter: will you bring glenn simpson to the committee, sir?
