blackwell. a very busy sunday. >> it is. we begin with the deadly clashes at venezuela's border. sources say at least five people are dead and more than 285 are injured. venezuelan security forces fought with prefers near the colombia border and venezuelan president maduro is still cling to go power and cut ties with colombia and stopping the opposition leader juan guaido from bringing aid into country. >> so far, the main flash point has been the bridge which connects venezuela to colombia. saturday, the venezuelan national guard scattered protesters with tear gas and rubber bullets. nearly all trucks carrying supplies were either blocked or burned. secretary of state mike pompeo slammed maduro tweeting the following.
let's get to cnn senior international correspondent nick paton walsh where he is in columbia. what are you seeing there this morning, nick? good morning. >> reporter: the border crossings will be closed today and tomorrow while they take stock of the damage done here in colombia. that is one of the busiest crossings and a life line to hungry venezuelans in the past year to get food in to them. yesterday, the attempt failed. some of the organizers say they got what they wanted with the terrifying scenes of clashes there andduro government did little to help their penal. 60 venezuelan soldiers defected during that violence. here is what we saw yesterday.
the images are troubling here so i should warn you. >> reporter: refuges would take their homeland back across the busiest board bridge with colombia. but it was closed. blocked physically by venezuelan riot police. behind them, violent pro government gangs. the young police taunted or begged into changing sides. i'm venezuelan, she said, holding off her i.d., and my father was a sergeant. how can you stop me from crossing? today was a day for venezuelans and collapse is hair hunger and the heat and thirst. the water you're drinking, she says, is colombian, because your president doesn't give you any. bring him out here to us. i eat or drink soda whenever i want here, he says. the hardest pain is how my grandfather died because he didn't have medicine.
for a brief moment, the anger dissipated. the police lowered their shields, talked calmly. down the road the promised aid convoy arrived and a huge crowd intent on pushing through. tension mounting here. the shields have gone back up again and the protesters are recommending people start to move back. this is why a slow march of opposition protesters. peaceful in as far as they would not take no for an answer. fast collapsed into tear gas. the day's lofty goals soon lost in a routine exchange of hatred. rocks against rubber bullets and rocks thrown back. did you expect to have blood on your shirt today?
did you expect that happen today? >> the blood? it's a symbol of freedom. >> reporter: as they lost their start on the bridge, the protesters took a fight underneath. they, many, but maduro's police are mightier. they have only whatever they could make. none of this chaos got any aid across here but it showed the uncompromising verocity of the government. carried out the mobs both cursing and cheering. the opposition -- amnesty. this will only get uglier. seen the mobbing of pro madouro militia here, battered by the
crowd and spared only by colombian police and if the symbolic bid to get aid in peacefully failed, then these scenes are what venezuelans are left with. the question really is what opposition leader guaido is no longer in venezuela and detract from his ability to meet with vice president mike pence in the colombia capital and will i look like a leader on the world stage in we are going to see probably more venezuelan soldiers defecting. the real issue is how do you get food into a starving people? none of this standoff has fixed that issue. back to you. >> nick paton walsh, thank you for you and your crew, we hope you're safe today as well. a little dicey yesterday. >> indeed. thank you, nick. our next guest grew up in venezuela and left and came to the united states as a student back in 2016. >> daniel demartino wrote an
article recently and he described how socialism destroyed his home and he is with us this morning. thank you for being here, daniel. your story is so fascinating and we will get to that in a second. i want to ask you since we are coming out of those images, what is your reaction to what you have seen the last 24 to 48 hours there in venezuela and do you have still have family there and are they okay? >> maduro has shown the last 24 hours he is willing to starve his people and to starve my people to cling in power. this has just shown and proven the theory that most people from venezuela had this regime will only get out of power with the use of international force. >> are you suggesting u.s. military forces milita forces? >> i am suggesting that president guaido when he meets with the vice president mike pence he need to ask for an intervention led by the colombia
and brazil and united states rally all of the region around this purpose. because, look. there is no other way. 300,000 children are going to die in venezuela if we don't do this of starvation and 30,000 people are being murdered and a crisis of epic proportions. >> can you help us understand what it was like for you growing up in venezuela for you and your family? >> well, my childhood, when i was little, it was much definitely better than now. i did have what i needed but as time progressed, starting in around 2010 when i have some memories when i was 11 years old, as well as a little earlier, you could see shortages of food and especially milk and toilet paper. by the time i left venezuela, we didn't have electricity, at least once a week. water, sometimes when out for weeks long. i was privileged, let me tell you, because i know people who live in the rural areas instead
of the city i lived and they sometimes didn't have electricity for weeks. now people are starving because they don't have basic food. >> that is why. help people understand why that is under that socialist society. >> that is exactly right. so the reason for this is that the regime took away most private businesses. they started with the excuse it was being accumulated under a few wealthy people in venezuela which this was just lie. most was owned by middle class by just farmers who wanted to produce and create wealth for themselves as well. at the end of the regime close to the borders like they are doing now with the humanitarian aid and destroy the private industry and destroy the private and price controls, there is nothing left to eat. >> hard to believe, given venezuela has the largest oil reserves in the world and has adequate water reserves as well. but i want to ask you about something else you wrote on this in the "usa today" column is a word of warning to u.s.
political leaders and alexander cortez and borernie sanders and the shift toward the democratic policy in the united states. how would you warn voters in this country? >> look. is there no further proof of my argument than bernie sanders statement a few days ago. he refused to say that maduro was a dictator and refused to recognize guaido as the president of venezuela. something nancy pelosi and other democrats have done. this is dangerous. democratic primary voters really need to push out these from their parties because not all democrats are that way. he urge by party compromise on this issue because if we continue venezuela with socialism and produce these policies toward the united states, united states might get closer to what we are seeing right now in venezuela. >> to be clear, not that bernie
sanders is pushing for a venezuelan style of socialism. they want the green new deal and medicaid for all but you're saying that is perhaps a path down that road but it's great to have your perspective. daniel di martino, thank you for your time. >> thank you for having me. >> thank you, daniel. >> this venezuela crisis unfolds. secretary of state mike pompeo will be jake tapper's guest on "state of the union" this morning today at 9:00 a.m. eastern on cnn. this morning, pope francis speaking on the final day of the clergy abuse summit at the vatican vowing once again to hold perpetrators of abuse responsible. the pope has had his most scorching words yesterday for priests who abuse children, calling them tools of satan and wolves. critics argue the sum mited mit lacking in solution for a more contreat plan to tackle the scandal. up next, the memo against paul manafort, it was unsealed

who went through this memo. >> reporter: paul manafort will face a sentencing next month. the memo told us an overview of what he did and what he did wrong detailing his crimes from the past decade, his deceit to his own counsel, congress, special counsel investigators, and how that should cause him to basically, if the judge agrees, spend the rest of his life in prison. he'll be sentenced in virginia and in washington next month in two separate cases. he was convicted on eight counts at trial and pleaded guilty to two more. the memo basically says he is unrepentant and if he ever gets out again, he probably would break the law again, suggesting to the judge put him away for a good amount of time. but, of course, as you know, the president might get the final say on this if he wants to. it's within his authority to
grant a pardon to his former campaign chairman, possibly give him some clemency from that potentially long prison sentence. >> marshall cohen, we appreciate it. >> if you didn't catch the lies. the lies are spectacular and so vast, we had to make graphic who paul manafort was honest with we are not clear. he lied to tax preparers and banks and special counsel and members of congress and his own legal team and many more. >> a pardon may not save him. let's be very honest. we don't know yet. >> if bloomberg news is right in that tax state charges are prepared in new york, those are not exempt. those are exempt from a pardon. >> we have to wait and see. >> we shall see. another big story we are watching this week with you. r&b singer r. kelly is expected to be in court again tomorrow. >> according to his lawyers he
spent a second night in jail because he couldn't make bail. cnn's sara sidner has the latest on this case in chicago. >> reporter: a judge set r. kelly's bond for $1 million, 250,000 dollars in each of the four alleged victims' cases. r. kelly would only have to pay 100,000 of that after he has been charged with ten counts of criminal sexual abuse. the prosecution today laying out some very sexually explicit details in this case to the judge, including sexual and physical abuse of several of the women that are now alleged victims in this particular case. the case brought yesterday. there was an indictment from a grand jury first and then the prosecution filed charges against r. kelly. the details include physical and sexual abuse against women who are now of age, but were minors at the time, under the age of 17 but older than 13 is how the prosecution put it.
we also heard from r. kelly's attorney steve greenberg. he came out and he said initially when r. kelly was arrested and we saw him go in to be booked last night, he said that all of the women are liars and called them liars very starkly and clearly. today, he backed down a little bit from that but he said you can't believe everything you hear, that he should be given, like any other defendant, the presumption of innocence. he also mentioned the 2008 trial where r. kelly was put on trial for 14 counts of pornography, child pornography and he was acquitted in that trial. he said people should give him the same kind of presumption of innocence as other defendants. he did recognize that there was a lot of media attention here. he recognized that there were some women who were in the courtroom here today listening and emotional. we can tell you that one of the victims, the alleged victims in this case, was inside the courtroom. she was emotional herself. this has been a very difficult
time for the women who have come out and accused r. kelly of sexually abusing them when they were minors. where do we go from here? steve greenberg, r. kelly's attorney, says he does not think that r. kelly has $100,000 just hanging around so will he get that money and get out of jail before his next hearing, which will be monday. sara sidner, cnn, chicago. five people are dead as violent clashes continue on the venezuela/colombia border. will the u.s. step up its involvement in the growing crisis and what would that look like? we will ask a member of the house foreign affairs committee next. catch the cnn presidential town hall with president bernie sanders live from washington, moderated by wolf blitzer tomorrow night at 8:00 p.m. eastern here on cnn. ♪

we are following this morning the deadly clashes on the venezuelan border. sources say five people are dead and more than 285 are injured as venezuelan security forces fought with protesters near the colombian border. take a look what is happening there. the opposition leader juan guaido was forcibly stopped by maduro from bringing aid into the country. that is what they were trying to do. there were buses of aid that were completely wasted because they were set on fire. >> devastating. in response, guaido is urging those not to be royal of those burning medicine and food in front of the sick and hunger. on saturday, the venezuelan national guard spread rubber bullets and tear gas on
protesters and joining me now is democratic congressman tom malinowski from new jersey. good to see you, congressman. let's talk about the crisis in venezuela and the secretary of state mike pompeo tweeting about the situation there. he was asked what kind of a sick tyrant stops food from getting to hungry people? the images of burning trucks filled with eight on sickening. are you supportive of the trump administration actions there or are you optimistic for a peaceful ending for the people from the venezuela? >> i'm not normally supporting the trump administration but i think this time they have gone about at the time right way and leaned us up with the european union and built a coalition of countries that are standing behind what i think is the legitimately elected government of the venezuelan people. i think we have got to stay the course here. we have got to stand tough, push
for humanitarian aid to go in and work with our allies in the region and europe. and let's not do anything stupid like escalate for a military confrontation. >> therein lies the question. what is the next step? marco rubio, your colleague in the senate, tweeted about that possibility and he says after discussions tonight with several regional leaders, it's now clear that the grave crimes committed today by the maduro regime have opened the door to various potential multilateral actions not on the table just 24 hours ago. would you warn against any type of military action there in venezuela? >> i think the main thing is we got to maintain the legitimacy of our policy and that means standing behind the countries in the region that have been tag the lead rather than doing something unilaterally. we shouldn't be dropping hints of military intervention, that we may not be willing to back up with actual actions. the policy that we have with sanctions, with a focus on
humanitarian aid encouraging venezuelan military and police to stand with their own people. that is something that we should stay the course with. i think it can work. >> we will get a better sense of the administration's plans and policies with mike pence, the vice president, when he gives a speech there tomorrow in colombia and will meet with guig guai guaido. michael cohen will appear before congress meeting at three different hearings. two closed door and one public. you're not on the committee get to question michael cohen. what are your colleagues after this week? >> i think we should step back and remember what we already know. there is a lot we don't know. but we know that russia interfered in our election to help donald trump win and the trump campaign welcomed that assistance and didn't tell the fbi about what they were hearing
from the russians, that president was trying to build a tower in russia and lying to the american people about it. when the fbi director tried to investigate russian interference, trump fired him. all of that stuff we already know. so, sure, i'd like to hear michael cohen's take on all of that and i certainly would like to hear, in particular, about those dealings between candidate trump and the russians on building real estate in moscow during the campaign, which is an extraordinary thing to have happened in american politics. even as you remember, he was taking positions throughout the campaign designed to make putin very, very happy about the potential course of a future trump administration. so that is what i'd like to learn more about. but we already know enough to condemn president trump for his
cooperation with russia and the stances he has taken potentially as a result of his desire to get close to putin. >> you well know, your republican colleagues will point out he is not michael cohen is not a credible witness but i also want to ask you about something happening on tuesday. the house will vote to block president trump's national emergency on the southern border. presumably the votes are in the house. how many republicans do you believe will join with democrats in the house and then within 18 days, what is its future in the senate and what does it mean if republicans don't stand up for the constitution and vote to block this emergency? >> we were just talking about venezuela, where we have a crisis because a tyrant is usurping the constitution of that country and defying his elected congress. here in the united states, we have a president who is beginning to do the same thing, declaring a state of emergency
to take money from the u.s. military, to seize land from texas ranchers to build a wall that the congress of the united states refuse to give him money to build and that shouldn't happen in a constitution democracy. they don't want to use a precedent that future presidents they don't want and haven't given a future democrat the permission to do. i think a lot of republicans will join with us in the house when we pass it in the house, it goes to the senate and they have to vote. mitchell mcconnell can't block this resolution. every republican will have to say yes or no on a state of emergency in america. >> one republican cosponsor in the house is just -- and one republican in the senate for now susan collins looks like she will vote for democrats but that
is all for now. thank you, tom malinowski. >> thank you so much. >> north korean kim jong-un on his way to hanoi, vietnam, to a summit with president trump. we talk about that next with our expert. senator kamala harris is john king's guest in the next hour at 8:00 a.m. eastern here on cnn. isn't what goes into your soup... just as important as what you get out of it? our broccoli cheddar is made with aged melted cheddar, simmered broccoli, and no artificial flavors. enjoy 100% clean soup today. panera. food as it should be. frstill, we never stoppedss wmaking it stronger.e. faster. smarter.

>> few details are known about the summit other than the two leaders will meet on wednesday and thursday. according to "the washington post," president trump is downplaying expectations from the summit. this is the second sum submmit between the two leaders. >> errol louis is with us now, as well as frank ahm from the institute of peace. good to see both of you this morning. thank you. we get the news that president trump is downplaying expectations. i wanted to ask you, frank, what has to happen here for the president to walk away from this summit and call it a success? >> i think this is t best opportunity that we have had for peace on the korean peninsula the last 20 years. the first summit we had was more symbolic, get to know you meeting. but i think both sides are recognizing the criticisms from that first summit.
we need tangible outcomes and we need a road map of how this process is going to go into the future and we need to establish working negotiations and we need concessions from both sides. >> how plausible do you think that is going to happen, errol? >> well, there are a lot of different variables. one of the most important is whether or not the white house intends to sort of keep the focus on what really matters, which is the question of the estimated 65 nuclear war heads that north korea possesses. all other kinds of issues. there could be a road map and give people a lot of hope, if those steps are not taken toward actually getting rid of those nuclear war heads, then you really can't call it a full success. to the extent that both the director of national intelligence and the national security adviser is saying that they don't think much has happened since the last summit in that direction, it's really quite troubling. then i guess politically, you also have to be concerned as a lot of chatter, some of it
disconcerting that the white house might try to use some kind of splashy declaration of an end to the korean war as a way to distract the media from both the question of whether or not they are making progress in nuclear talks, as well as to deal with some of the blow-back from domestic issues that look pretty bad for the white house right now. >> as you talk about, you know, the threat there, errol, i want to read you something that is coming from the dprk this morning from their state-run media. the u.s. people will never be cleared of the security threats that threw them into panic and responsibility will be place odd those due. sounds pretty threatening to me. frank, what about you? >> yeah. it's just their own efforts to try to shape the discussion. again, i think as errol referred
to the possibility of end of war declaration. i think that is a great idea if we can get reciprocal concessions from north korea. i think it would be helpful to let the north korean people know peace is possible and the u.s. doesn't have permanent enemies. we fought a war with china and now allies and a brutal war with iran and now a great economic relation and north korea could be number three at that success if there is success at hanoi. >> a trust deficit here with kim jong-un. let's listen to president trump. this is something he actually said this week. >> i think the first trip to singapore was extremely successful. we will be meeting with chairman kim for two days and i think we will accomplish a lot. we started off with a very good meeting and i think we will continue that along. i don't think this will be the last meeting by any chance, but i do think that the relationship is very strong. >> the relationship is strong. he has hinted that this will not
be the last meeting, errol. do you get the sense he is trying to set low expectations for this meeting or is he just trying to establish an ongoing relationship? >> much of that is the way the president speaks when he is kind of treading water, playing for time. uncertain that he can bring home any kind of a tangible victory. you kind of make the entire time frame much longer and see we will see what happens and get talking. if that happens is what is diplomacy is about. the sanctions that crippled the north korean economy and help get conversations going and that will hold out hope even for maybe some discussion about human rights which is, of course, is very important in all of this. it could work out. i mean, we should all be very hopeful, regardless of our personal politics, that the white house will, in fact, pull
out something akin to a victory for peace and for the u.s. >> so, you know, president trump agreed in the last meeting to cancel the joint south korea war exercises and that was a major concession, obviously, for north korea. i understand aides are concerned there could be more surprises in round two. how do you balance, frank, the strong arming with not giving too much? and what would be giving too much this time around? >> right. so i think there is a legitimate basis for concern about the president offering to withdraw at least partially u.s. troops from the korean peninsula. the white house has said u.s. troops are not on the table but, again, president trump has shown to be unpredictable so i think it would be helpful and helpful that the summit is over two days and maybe it gives time for the advisers to caution the president about any risky moves. >> errol louis and frank aum,
thank you both for being here and taking the time for us. >> thank you. >> you never know what happens when the president goes by his gut in those meetings. hollywood's biggest night and i'm talking tonight about the oscars and this year's best picture nominees tackling race and diversity in more ways than one. candles together! ok, let's huff and puff. like you do sometimes, grandpa? well, when you have copd, it can be hard to breathe. so my doctor said... symbicort can help you breathe better- starting within 5 minutes. it doesn't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden symptoms. symbicort helps provide significant improvement of your lung function. symbicort is for copd, including chronic bronchitis and emphysema. it should not be taken more than twice a day. it may increase your risk of lung infections, osteoporosis, and some eye problems. tell your doctor if you have a heart condition or high blood pressure before taking it. symbicort could mean a day with better breathing.

thank you for coming in. good to have you here. >> next time i'm back, some better weather. >> maybe. >> we hope that you maybe good memories today.
