tv Early Start with Christine Romans and Dave Briggs CNN December 17, 2018 2:00am-2:59am PST
health care once again in limbo for some 20 million americans. a texas judge scraps the entire law. will the ruling stand on appeal? and a huge spike in the number of teens vaping nationwide as other drug use and alcohol on the decline. for seniors in high school, the spike is the biggest on record? >> the largest in the 43-year history of the survey. drinking is down and use of opioids is down. good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm dave briggs. it is 5:00 a.m. in the east. it is days from a partial government shutdown unless the president and congress can real a deal on the border wall. the white house is demanding $5 billion for the wall, which, remember, mexico was going to pay for it. congressional democrats rejecting that request. the white house senior adviser stephen miller taking a hard line on "face the nation."
echoing the president's demand. >> we will do whatever is necessary to build the border wall and stop this ongoing crisis of illegal immigration. this is a very -- if it comes to it, absolutely. this is a fundamental issue. at stake is whether or not the united states remains a sovereign country and establish and enforce rules for entry into the country. >> "the new york times" reports that house republicans have a more immediate problem. members retiring or defeated in november don't want to show up to vote any longer. many have been skipping votes since the midterms and gop leaders are unsure if they will show up. chuck schumer says they are not sure if they have the votes to get billions for the wall. >> president trump should understand there are not the votes for the wall. in the house and senate, he will not get the wall in any form. >> if a partial shutdown happens at the end of the week, the consequences could trickle down.
of course, nothing concentrates minds in washington like a holiday. the president is scheduled to leave for christmas vacation this week in florida. 16 days in mar-a-lago. a damning report claiming silicon valley may have done the bear minimum to help the senate russia investigation. the report commissioned from an online intel firm. social media companies could have done a better job providing data about russian accounts that posed as americans. "the washington post" has a separate report for the intel committee. it finds the russians used every major social media platform to influence voters to elect president trump and worked harder to support him once in office. >> in the meantime, president trump's attorney rudy giuliani says his client may have been involved in the conversations about trump tower moscow significantly later than previously known. the president's former personal attorney michael cohen claimed those talks ended in january of 2016 before the primaries. and when cohen pleaded guilty to
lying to congress, he said those talks lasted through june. now the talks could have lasted longer through the campaign. >> did president trump know that michael cohen was pursuing trump tower moscow into the summer of 2016? >> according to the answer he gave, it would have covered up to november of 2016. he had conversations with him. >> cnn reported last week that special counsel robert mueller is still interested in interviewing the president in person, but giuliani is having none of it. >> good luck. good luck. after what they did to flynn and trapped him into perjury and no sentence for him? 14 days for papadopoulos. i did better on traffic violations. than they did with papadopoulos. they are a joke. they're a joke. over my dead body, but you know, i could be dead. >> for more on that, we have boris sanchez from the white house.
>> reporter: dave and christine, rudy giuliani in clean-up mode this weekend after michael cohen was sentenced to three years in prison and made negative comments about the president in public. giuliani effectively trying to discredit michael cohen and put distance between the former fixer and the white house. giuliani insisting the payments made to stormy daniels and karen mcdougal were not campaign contributions. >> it is not a crime. it's not a crime, george. paying $130,000 to stormy whatever and paying $100,000 to the other one is not a crime. if there is another peurpose, it's no longer a campaign contribution. suppose he used his campaign funds to payoff stormy daniels? it would be a campaign violation. it's not. >> reporter: in the southern district of new york, michael cohen plead guilty to campaign finance violations for those specific payments. there is what rudy giuliani is saying and what is actually happening in court. we should point out we may not
have heard the last of michael cohen. representative elijah cummings said he would like to invite michael cohen back to capitol hill to testify once more. dave and christine. >> boris sanchez there. a new poll shows americans find the president is lying about the russia investigation. in the nbc poll, 62% think the president is not honest of russia. a new cnn poll has mixed news for the president. from the first in the nation caucus state. 2/3 of iowa republican voters would definitely vote to reelect mr. trump if the general election were held today. the caucus is to pick the 2020 general election candidate. nearly 2/3 of the polled said the state party should welcome
challengers to the president. the future of obamacare once again up in the air. a federal judge in texas striking down the entire affordable care act as unconstitutional. you may remember back in 2012, the supreme court did uphold the law claiming the individual mandate was a legal tax. last year, the tax was reduced to zero and the judge cited zero tax means zero individual mandate. the argument without it, the whole law is false. >> the affordable care act covers people with pre-existing conditions. it lets states expand medicare. and medicaid and lets kids stay on their parents policies until age 26. these are really popular parts of obamacare. president trump declared that the decision a great ruling for our country. some republicans are not sold. maine senator susan collins believes the ruling will be overturned on appeal. >> there's no reason why the individual mandate provision can't be struck down and keep all of the good provisions of the affordable care act. >> a group of states led by california vowing to appeal the decision and another judge considering a case brought by maryland defending obamacare.
we may get duelling rulings here. enrollment for 2019 ended on saturday. president trump's acting chief of staff has not always had kind are words for his boss. listen to what mick mulvaney said during a campaign debate in 2016? >> i believe trump as enthusiastically as i can. in fact, i think he is a terrible human being, but the choice on the other side is just as bad. >> on friday, trump tapped mick mulvaney as the acting chief of staff. the newspaper in south carolina stated that mulvaney's remarks were at the time. and a new interior secretary
after ryan zinke is out. he faces multiple investigations. he calls the claims false. the white house had been pushing zinke to resign for weeks and he was told he had until the end of the year to leave or be fired. possible replacements include david burnhardt and david heller. the president says he is reviewing the case of army major matt golsteyn. he is the green beret charged with killing a bomb maker in afghanistan. this came up in a 2011 cia job interview. according to "the washington post" golsteyn admitted the killing. he did it according to orders by superiors. this military prosecution states that rarely do officials weigh

latest from london. i am hearing from high profile economists saying the real world impact of the messy divorce is too damaging to the british economy and british people. >> reporter: that is right, christine. last week was especially punishing. a bruising week for british prime minister theresa may. she is expected to come out today before the house of common swinging and hitting back at growing calls for a second brexit refer dendu -- referendu. she is despite media reports that members of her cabinet and her chief of staff are prepaying for that eventuality. reports that they are denying. theresa may, nevertheless, has hope she will get this deal through and she will be able to extract further concessions from the european union for a
meaningful vote to happen in january. the fact of the matter is the mess inside westminster is not adding up in her favor. if she fails to achieve this, there are limited options. including the dreaded no deal which seems to be catastrophic for both sides of the eu and uk. a no deal could result in a 7% hit to the gdp of the uk. that is seen as really unrealistic at this point and we are seeing the calls for the growing referendum and take the brexit back to the british people and have them decide. >> a 7% hit to the gdp. that is millions of people out of work. businesses closed. that's not something that can be sustained. they have to figure this out. er erin, thank you. okay. after two weeks of tense climate talks, nearly 200 nations, not
including the u.s. helping with rules on curbing the climate. leaders know this is not enough from the critical levels in the climate. we have melissa bell with the latest. melissa, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dave. this two-week negotiation is a day late in delivering the rule book putting in the ambitious targets for the end of 2015. you may remember the paris climate accord was signed by all those countries. this is about the rule book to ensure the implementation by 2020. remember those ambitious targets aimed to keep global warming under 2 degrees higher from previous industrial levels. those are looking not ambitious enough. two weeks of wrangling and extra day of negotiation allowed that
rule book to be signed. it is already considered too little too late. as proof of that, a major sticking point is whether or not to welcome a u.n. report that suggested that in fact the world was heading for 3 degrees this century. a catastrophic new set of findings by the u.n. should the conference welcome that report and even on that they were not able to agree. united states and saudi arabia and russia blocking the welcoming of that u.n. report. instead, its completion was welcome which is a reminder, dave, that as the world seeks to come to the agreement and compromise, it is all looking like it is far too little and far too late. >> it does, indeed. melissa bell live in paris. thank you. ahead, we will talk sports. philadelphia eagles finally look like the defendng champs as they try to sneak into the

we are less than five days until a partial government shutdown unless president trump and congress can reach a deal on funding for a border wall. the white house is demanding $5 billion for the wall, which, remember, mexico was going to pay for it. congressional democrats rejecting that request. the white house senior adviser stephen miller taking a hard line on "face the nation." >> we will do whatever is necessary to build the border wall and stop this ongoing crisis of illegal immigration. this is a very -- if it comes to it, absolutely. this is a fundamental issue. at stake is whether or not the united states remains a sovereign country and establish and enforce rules for entry into the country. >> "the new york times" reports that house republicans have a more immediate problem. members retiring or defeated in november don't want to show up to vote any longer. many have been skipping votes since the midterms and gop leaders are unsure if they will ever return. chuck schumer says they are not sure if they have the votes to get billions for the wall. >> president trump should understand there are not the votes for the wall.
in the house and senate, he will not get the wall in any form. >> if a partial shutdown happens at the end of the week, the consequences could trickle down. of course, nothing concentrates minds in washington like a holiday. the president is scheduled to leave for christmas vacation this week in florida. 16 days in mar-a-lago. the optics are interesting. joining us is historian and professor julian zelizer. good morning. >> good morning. >> the house has less than three days. are we likely to have a shutdown? what about the optics of the president kicking back for 16 days and playing golf with a partial shutdown? >> terrible. the only people who like the shutdown is president trump and his base which still supports him fighting for the wall. the problem is there is a disconnect between that and republicans at this point who don't want this to happen who are not voting and who are
thinking exactly of that. images of the president vacationing while the government is shutdown. i think a lot of republicans really don't want this to go through. >> there are trump supporters in the midwest who say we don't need the government. they think the president is on the moral high ground. what we saw from the polling shows that. he was signing his legislature achievement this week a year ago. something he was proud of. now fast forward a year. trump is under investigation. trump organization, foundation, campaign, transition, inauguration, administration. how boxed in is he here? >> he is very boxed in. he doesn't necessarily mind being boxed in. this is a president, in some ways, likes being in an add v--
adversarial position. you have multiple investigations at this point and tremendous instability within the white house. i think the people working around him are worried. it is a question between trump and his base and the rest of the republican party at this time. everyone is worried about where the investigations lead. >> instability may be the word that sums up health care after the ruling by the federal judge in texas. ruling the entire thing unconstitutional. the president celebrated this on twitter as great news for america. susan collins, senator from maine, not so fast. listen. >> there's no reason why the individual mandate provision can't be struck down and keep all of the good proper -- good proper investigati-- provisions affordable care act. >> are republicans concerned at
this ruling? the president may be celebrating it, but are republicans fearing it? >> the republicans wanted it to go away. they pushed for repeal and replace. they lost and lost badly. then in the midterms, this was a big issue for democrats running on this. the last thing they want is this case and the potential for the program all of a sudden to shutdown which would be a crisis of health care for millions of americas. i don't think a lot of republicans are celebrating right now. it is not necessarily in their control. it's in the courts. >> you could argue, the pre-existing conditions was the central issue that democrats ran on. gave them 40 additional seats. >> let's talk about the president's personal attorney rudy giuliani this weekend. he is trying to reframe what legal jeopardy the president is in in more precise terms. >> it's not a crime. it's not a crime, george. paying $130,000 to stormy
whatever and paying $100,000 to the other one, it is not a crime. the edwards case was paid $1.1 million. if it is a personal purpose, it is not a campaign contribution. suppose he used campaign expenses to pay off stormy daniels. it would be a violation. >> we are learning more about how long into the campaign the president -- involved in the trump tower moscow project. what do you make of it? >> it is a total mess. usually in a scandal like this, the administrations are disciplined and focused. everyone on the same page as they fight back against the accusations. this is the opposite. giuliani is saying a million things and saying them at the same time. i think what you see is no one really has the same story. giuliani himself is throwing
everything out there trying to protect the president. even basically changing what the law is on television and describing what happened. i think it reflects the chaos and the tone that the president has set in the oval office. that is what the advisers are reflecting. >> does mick mulvaney, the new acting chief of staff, does he fix it? >> absolutely not. he will be like john kelly and priebus and the chiefs of staff before him. it is the same structure he is going into and it is worse because now he is facing house democrats coming at the administration. we will see if mulvaney even keeps the job for a few months at best. >> if he wants the job. it will be an interesting couple days. thank you. also in the russia probe, a damning report due this week claiming silicon volualley may e done the bear minimum to help
the senate russia investigation. the report commissioned from an online intel firm. social media companies could have done a better job providing data about russian accounts that posed as americans. >> "the washington post" has a separate report for the intel committee. it finds the russians used every major social media platform to influence voters to elect president trump and worked harder to support him once in office. coming up, new u.s. sanctions on north korea could block the path to denuclearization forever. strong words from pyongyang. we will have a live report next. new unbelieva-brow longwear brow gel by l'oreal paris. no smudge. sweat resistant. waterproof. it's unbelievable. unbelieva-brow longwear brow gel. l'oreal paris.

will ripley has reported many times for us from pyongyang. he is live in hong kong with the latest. will, were the sanctions more symbolic? >> reporter: absolutely. it was to add three more names to the long list of north koreans who under sanctions doesn't have a tangible impact. but to publicly shame three officials who i have seen standing on stage next to kim jong-un at events in pyongyang. the head of the state security and propaganda and agitation. you see the media with the increasing warnings not necessarily about the individual sapgs sanctions, but the overall order of the program for north korea and the issue of human rights which they say is nonexistent. people being punished for speaking their mind if the
government doesn't match what they said. and the continued punishment from the united states. this could bring a return to what we saw a year ago. north korea launching missiles and conducting nuclear tests. i don't think they want to see that happen. at the same time, they are trying to tell the united states that if there isn't some movement, that is exactly what could happen. they continue to praise president trump over and over, dave. they say the sanctions are going against the will of the white house. they are clearly trying to play to president trump's ego ahead of the second summit next year. >> still has not ruled it out. will ripley live in hong kong. thank you. to a cnn exclusive. the first look at operation northern shield along the border with lebanon. there are fears the underground tunnels could be used to mount

[ grinding noise ] >> reporter: that's the vibration of digging through
