tv New Day Weekend With Victor Blackwell and Christi Paul CNN September 7, 2019 3:00am-4:00am PDT
in my 35 years in abico bahamas, it's the first time i ever see something like this. >> we lost a lot of lives. some bodies are still recovering bodies right now. >> close us down. my dog dead. some clothes i lost. most everything i lost. >> the government got to send big ships and get the people out. an impeachment inquiry into the trump administration is about to ramp up in a major way. >> the house judiciary committee is going to expect to take on wednesday its first formal step to essentially make it clear the procedures for moving forward
with an impeachment probe. they're drafting a resolution detailing exactly how that investigation will look like. well, good morning to you, and thank you so much for spending your saturday morning with us. i'm christi paul. >> i'm alex marquardt. >> thank you for being here. what a story -- >> lots of stories. big saturday morning. lots going on. >> first of all, it's just total devastation in the bahamas. we have the brand-new video that we have most recently gotten in, coming in for you. survivors say it was like an atomic bomb went off. hundreds if not thousands of people are still missing. and moments ago, the united nations said there are more than 70,000 people who are homeless now. we're live throughout the day from the worst hit areas in the bahamas. in fact, victor blackwell is there and will be joining us in a bit. >> 70,000. incredible. plus, we're keeping an eye
on possible impeachment action in washington, d.c. learning about a major vote coming up next week which could pave the way to impeaching president trump. and conflict of interest? there's a new investigation into whether military spending's been directly benefiting president trump's golf resort in scotland. we do want to start with you today with house democrats escalating its impeachment investigation. >> that's right. sources are telling cnn that the house judiciary committee will vote next week on a resolution bringing democrats closer to impeaching the president. cnn's joe johns is at the white house this morning. this resolution ultimately, joe, gives house democrats more power to conduct these investigations. >> reporter: that's right, and also it's going to sort of lay out the ground rules. this is a very important step reported by my colleague up on capitol hill, manu raju. essentially the house judiciary
committee deciding that they will work toward on wednesday voting on a resolution that sort of lays on out the procedures for their impeachment inquiry. this would include how to handle witnesses, how to handle hearings, how to handle secret grand jury information. all of this is important for a number of reasons. first because there is precedent and there's history including, of course, the impeachment work on richard nixon back in the 1970s. they're expected to use the guidelines that were laid out there, at least in part. so why does ault -- does all of this matter? the president's lawyers here, the white house counsel and others, have argued including the president that this is simply a witch hunt, there's no legislative purpose for what the house judiciary committee has been doing. what this vote will do if it occurs as expected sometime on wednesday or thereafter, it will
essentially say that the house judiciary committee is now operating under the rules laid out directly in the united states constitution using the power provided to the house judiciary committee and the congress to investigate questions of impeachment involving the president of the united states and that they're serious about it. so an important step. if it happens next week, we'll see what happens. back to you. >> joe johns, we appreciate it so much. good to see you this morning. thank you, sir. we want to get some analysis now with errol lewis, holocaust of "you decide" and cnn political commentator, as well. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> this has been a long time coming, they've been talking about this. what is -- what do you make of the fact that they seem to finally be here making some sort of decision, especially despite the fact that there hasn't been a lot of support from speaker pelosi. >> that's right. there's a subtle difference, but
a really important one in the stance that the investigation will now take. once you decide or once you declare that this is about impeachment, that that could lie at the end of this road, it will help the house democrats in their endless court fights when the congress is trying to compel the white house to respond to subpoenas, to answer requests for documents, to produce witnesses that they want to speak to. the courts have been, you know, a little back and forth on that. sometimes yes, sometimes no. if congress says this is about an impeachment inquiry, it's a way of dramatically ratcheting up the seriousness of the inquiry, and they hope, in fact, to sort of get more documents, more witnesses, more subpoenas answered because they're saying there is very serious business. this is not just the regular political back and forth. >> errol, game this out for us, if you will. we are already looking ahead, of course, to 2020. one of the reasons that so many democrats have been reluctant to push for impeachment hearings is because they know it's futile.
they know it will not get through a republican-controlled senate, and there is this risk of firing up the base. the president's base, i should say. so put it into 2020 presidential terms for us. >> look, in presidential terms, the reality is that all of the leading democratic candidates for president have said that they want this to go forward. so at some point, the democrats in the house were going to have to answer this anyhow. it will help focus the factual basis that the presidential candidates are talking about. referring to the mueller report at this point, people's eyes glaze over. it's not clear. it's not entirely certain what it is they mean when they say the mueller report. this, on the other hand, is likely to produce new information. the presidential candidates will probably pick it up and run with it. the trump administration has -- candidates trump tries to run for re-election, they're going to be furious and be fighting back. there is going to be front and
center. it's going to be really, really important. by the way, another part of calling this an impeachment inquiry means that what i'm looking for is that we'll expect the house to have rules that will include allowing nonmembers, meaning professional staff, to conduct a lot of the public inquiry. and that all by itself will really sort of focus the public's attention on what is being alleged with regard to hush money payments, other forms of corruption, and, of course, the russian collusion that was part of the probe in the first place. >> and of course democratic members are looking at their own bases, as well, who are more reluctant than they are it seems to go ahead with this impeachment inquiry. of course, congress now coming back after six weeks of recess. so all eyes on capitol hill. all eyes on speaker pelosi. >> no doubt. >> errol lewis, thank you so much for breaking it down for us. >> thank you. >> thanks, errol. all right.
on to our other major story of the morning. this morning the united nations is saying that it believes that hurricane dorian left at least 70,000 people homeless on abaco and grand bahama. thousands more are missing, and many are feared dead. >> the official death toll, in fact, yeah. 43. >> right. >> they expect that to surge significantly. this is a tragedy that's unfolding beyond words really as we listen to people who are there. officials are bringing in more body bags. they say they're still trying to recover bodies from some of the hardest hit areas. in fact, gary tuchman who's there says -- and i hate to say this -- his best characterization he says when are you there you just smell death. >> people like gary have seen such situations, and we're hearing the superlatives not just to make this sounds like a sensational story but because it is a sensational story, unique
in its horrors. one of our correspondents, our anchors, who has witnessed these horrors in the last few hours and days is our victor blackwell. he is in nassau and has been spending time in marsh harbor in abaco. in is part of what he has been seeing. >> reporter: the strongest storm to ever hit the bahamas, the strongest form on the planet this year. this is what those superlatives look like up close. this business apartment in those 180 mile-per-hour winds collapsed on to itself. you can see a counter here, but what this was really isn't decipherable by what's left here. let me take you to this side. the only thing that's left here are stairs and the beginnings of a porch. i can't tell what was here those winds were so strong. for nine hours, from one points where the eye of dorian approached abaco, came on land, to the time the other side of
the eye exited, it was nine hours the winds were here, gusts up to 225 miles per hour. as far as you can see from marsh harbor, there is damage, the area is decimated, and it will take a very long time to rebuild. >> that's part of what he saw. victor is with us now from nassau. victor, i know that you have been through this before, through hurricanes, you've seen the aftermath. help us understand how this might be different. >> reporter: good morning to you. the scale here is unimaginable. i mean, when we flew over and landed several times on abaco and there in marsh harbor, just -- it's not a very large island, but as it stretched on and on you saw how much work ahead there is not only to rebuild but to find those potentially in what's left. what many people do not get an appreciation for on camera, a screen, a television screen,
your cell phone you're watching the video, is the depth, the height of these piles of rubble. in their you've got boards of lumber and building materials, but also containers from the port tossed in. so imagine the -- the care it will take to lift the huge containers but still respect that there might be bodies there, as well, and do that carefully. listen, let me tell you what's going to start after sunrise if today is like every other day this week, rescue flights, choppers, the u.s. coast guard, planes that have been chartered, others, boats, as well, they will try to go back to abaco, a 90-minute flight by chopper roundtrip, and bring people here. the headline of the local paper, of those people waiting, sums it it up. "the guardian," "we've had enough." hundreds were crowded at the edges of tarmacs. at marsh harbor airport. and treasure key airport. we spoke with one boy who was there at marsh harbor, 14 years
old. his name is velsen renee, was there with his family, had been there all day. the temperature in the high 80s, feels like 98 degrees. and he tells us what he experienced sitting in with his family in a small room as the hurricane came ashore. >> my nephew's mom died with a baby because she was trying to go back in the house to get the bottle for the baby. then when the water hit her, she just gone with the baby. the home like -- feel kind of -- i don't know, worried because -- i don't hear a lot from my family members. >> reporter: who haven't you heard from? >> from my cousins. from my sister. she's in the united states, but she's okay. but my dad isn't here. he's in -- on vacation and can't come back because the planes haven't been traveling a lot.
so i haven't heard from cousins, aunts, a lot of people. >> reporter: listen, the bahamian people are resilient, but there's an exhaustion here, and you could feel that in my conversation with velsen. and there are a lot of people waiting to hear from loved ones. they want some confirmation that they are safe, that they are in some place of comfort. when we landed at marsh harbor, there was a family of four, the marows, they were trying to be evacuated but there wasn't room enough for four on our chopper. my crew and i invited 14-year-old malik marow and 21-year-old kenly victor, today is his birthday, to board our chopper. this had been the first time they had seen the scope, once we lifted off the ground. remember, they have no access to television because the power is out. cell phone service is bad. no internet available for most people. so as we took off, kenley looked
out the window and shook his head. as he saw just how much had been damaged and to the extent, he couldn't believe it. i wanted to ask him about what he experienced as the storm hit. and he immediately said, "i don't want to talk about it." i backed off, and we were silent. about 15 to 20 seconds later he said, "because when people ask me about it, i feel like it's a nightmare, and i can't wake up." and he also told us that he had not slept since he came out after the storm was over, but he did get some sleep on that flight. both the marow family and kenley, they're in nassau with family. that's the story of so many people. as you reported, the u.n. reporting that 70,000 people have lost their homes on grand bahama and on abaco. the local paper reporting that the prime minister says there's no way that nassau can absorb 70,000 people. the question is what happens
next. how many people even after abaco is rebuilt, after grand bahama is rebuilt, will go back. a long recovery for the bahamas. >> my goodness. victor, cannot imagine what you're seeing. boy, just these people, it's unfathomable really. thank you so much, victor blackwell. >> thanks for bringing that home. stay safe, victor. >> it's been a week, a week since these people are dealing with this. now we've got north carolina. >> and just that incredible shot of that young man in the helicopter, perched on the edge, in the opening there. just seemingly dazed and stunned as they flew over what was once his home. i can't imagine what he is trying to process there. >> i agree. all right. the story of hurricane dorian continues back here in the united states. several cities are cleaning up after the hurricane made landfall on cape hatteras, north carolina. five deaths are being blamed on that storm so far here in the
u.s. you're looking at an aerial view of north carolina's opacoke island. disastrous flooding there. that's what left behind -- was left behind by hurricane dorian. residents say they had to wade in waist-deep water in their own homes, a lot of people had to be rescued from the upper floors or their attics. they had to be rescued by boat. those floodwaters are slowly starting to recede this morning. there's a lot of work that has to be done there. we want to remind you, i know a lot of times we watch and think, i want to help but i have no idea what they need, what i could possibly do. in the bahamas or here in the u.s. we have -- we're try to make that possible, go to cnn.com/impact for ways that you can, indeed, offer some help. >> please head over there. we have lots of stories that we are following this morning. there are new developments on the iranian oil tanker that was seized by great britain back in july. it was thought to be carrying oil to syria, which is in
violation of sanctions against iran. iran has denied it, and the ship was eventually released. but now the national security adviser, john bolton, saying that there is evidence that iran was lying. we will show you that evidence, the satellite images, when we come back. an incredible story of survival here. >> i just see this mountain lion jump on it. and then it -- it kind of pounces on to me. i pick up a stick trying to jab it in the eye. >> that 8-year-old boy is going to tell us more about how he was able to free himself from the jaws of a mountain lion. something great from mr. clean. stop struggling to clean tough messes with sprays. try clean freak! it has three times the cleaning power of the leading spray to dissolve kitchen grease on contact. and it's great for bathrooms! just keep pumping the power nozzle to release

there are new developments on the iranian oil tanker that was seized by great britain in july. it was thought to be carrying oil to syria, in violation of sanctions against iran. iran denied it, and the ship was eventually released. >> a few hours ago, u.s. national security adviser john bolton tweeted this satellite image. take a look here. he says this is the same ship. and he claims it places the tanker two nautical miles from a naval base in syria. he goes on to say anyone who says the ship was not headed to syria is in denial. cnn's ben wedeman is joining us from beirut. what do you make of if bolton's correct, if it is that close to
a syrian port? is there a violation there was sanctions? >> reporter: not quite yet, but certainly all the indications point to somehow they're going to try to unload the 2.1 million barrels on this ship. it was released from gibraltar on the 15th of august on the condition or after written commitment was made by iran that this oil would not be sent to syria. but what we've seen is that this ship has been loitering around in the eastern mediterranean now for about two weeks on the 2nd of september, five days ago, it turned off its tracker. and now national security adviser john bolton is tweeting, it appears to be right off the coast of syria, the port of tartus, syria's second largest port. it's not clear exactly what's
going to happen, but certainly it would seem that the intention is to offload that oil, perhaps at sea as opposed to in the port of tartus. but certainly that's the indications that we're getting. now this whole -- the story of this ship is rather interesting. in recent weeks, brian hook, the u.s. representative, special representative for iran, actually sent an e-mail to the indian captain of this ship offering several million dollars in reward if he would take it to a port where the united states could seize it. i inat this point -- at this point as it is off the coast of syria, it's not clear if that's ever going to happen. >> all right. appreciate you so much. thank you, sir. >> thank you, ben. all right. still to come, the devastation in marsh harbor in the bahamas is unimamaimaginableunimaginabl.
thanks to priceline working with top airlines to turn their unsold seats into amazing deals, family reunion attendance is up. we're all related! yeah, i see it. and because priceline offers great deals by comparing thousands of prices in real time, sports fans are seeing more away games. various: yeah-h-h! is that safe? oh, y... ahh! not at all. no, ma'am. nope. and more people than ever are enjoying romantic getaways. (romantic music) that's gross priceline. every trip is a big deal.
i can worry about it, or doe. something about it. that's gross garlique helps maintain healthy cholesterol naturally, and it's odor-free, and pharmacist recommended. garlique back to the bahamas where rescue crews are desperately searching for survivors from hurricane dorian. the death toll as it stands right now is 43, but that is expected to rise. >> significantly. and the people who did survive the storm, they're trying to leave the area. look at these latest pictures we have. there's no running water there. there's no electricity. food is running out, and they need to get someplace where they feel safe. >> it is a very dire situation. relief agencies are there on the ground trying to help as best they can. and bahamas air is offering free relief flights from those hard-hit areas out to the capital, nassau. >> so our colleague, victor blackwell, is in nassau, bahamas, right now. and i would assume that nasa's
doing some scrambling right now as they try to determine what to do with an influx of these people from the other islands. >> reporter: yeah. the prime minister said last evening that there is no way that nassau can aborb the 70,000 people according to the united nations who are homeless on grand bahama and on abaco, that according to the local paper here, "the guardian." some of those people will go to the united states. we know that there is a cruise ship that is taking about 1,500 people from the bahamas to florida, maybe they will stay with family there. still, there has been an influx of people coming here, making the best of what has happened. they've just lost everything, not just their homes, but connections to people. they're still waiting for phone calls, confirmation that loved ones survived the storm. we did speak with several people who survived.
eddie joseph who rode out the storm in his bathroom with his family. when he opened the door, there was just nothing left, only the bathroom of his apartment survived. we spoke with the marow family. they were four of 15 held together in a single room. they rode out the storm together. and jermaine smith was alone in her apartment when the winds strengthened and things started to fall apart. watch. >> next thing i look, i see the roof just flying off and came toward my way. i was inside my bedroom, and i ducked. i duck and i move, a big tree came out of the window i just moved from and just missed it. just like, that the rain started pounding, my roof started lifting. i run inside the bathroom for cover in the tub, they say it's always a safe haven. that's what saved me. i was praying to god to save my life because i was scared. literally didn't think i was going to make it.
you know, i just holding on to that, but i was scared. >> reporter: and she stayed in the bathtub, she tells us, for eight hours. she's still sleeping every night in the bathtub in what's left of her home because she's not leaving abaco. you saw there she had a black t-shirt and hat. those were branded with the logo of world city kitchen. the jose andreas outfit that is here feeding as many people as possible. she's staying there to help those who have stayed. there are plenty of people trying to get off the island, to get off abaco, to get away from grand bahama. they're leaving on u.s. coast guard flights, some on private flights, as well. you talked about bahamas air. but our gary tuchman went there by boat as the u.s. coast guard tried to save as many people as possible. watch. >> reporter: we're in a section of marsh harbor called mud and
peas. described as a largely haitian community. i've been covering hurricanes for about 37 years now. i've never seen decimation like we're seeing in this town of abaco. we're accompanying the u.s. coast guard as they're looking for the possibility of any survivors. you see them searching through the rubble. this gives you an idea of why it's impossible now to have a firm death toll. for example, you could see this home right here. it's clear no one has gone inside this home. these coast guardsmen are about to go inside this home and other homes to see if there's anyone inside. a short time ago -- we'll give you a look at what they're trying to do -- trying to plot out the next couple of hours, which direction to head. it's important to point out that u.s. coast guard's men and women, their job is to protect the united states, to go drug interdictions, but it's also to help other people. we've spent the day on a carrier with 25 coast guard men and women and two members of fire
rescue from the miami fire department who are here as paramedics looking for people who still may need help. you can see as the camera goes around in a circle just the widespread decimation here in this section of marsh harbor. people are shell shocked. they don't know what to do. we saw more than 200 people lined up at port hoping to get on a ship to get out of here. every one of them have lost their homes, utter devastation. we can't see anything in eyesight that is standing without damage, and most of it is completely gone as far as we can see. so there's a lot to do in determining how many people died, how many people were hurt, and what the survivors here are going to do with their lives. >> gary tuchman there for us on marsh harbor. thank you for that. i want to bring in janelle eli with international red cross based here in the bahamas. thank you for spending time with
us. this estimate from the united nations that 70,000 people, grand bahama and abaco, are homeless, many counted in the estimate from the world food program of 60,000 who will need food support. what is the red cross offing for those who need help -- offering for those who need help? >> right now the red cross is working around the clock to get aid to people in need. we had a planeload of 38,000 relief supplies lapd in nassau. things like emergency shelter kits so people can repair their homes or at least have something over there h -- over their head even if it's a tarp. we know that access to clean water is difficult and can cause secondary humanitarian needs. hygiene items and clearwater are real priorities right -- and clean water are real priorities right now. at the red cross we're working on something that you mentioned earlier which is helping to reconnect families. people i spoke to have been
devastated not just by the physical impacts of hurricane dorian, but by not knowing whether their loved ones are alive. i spoke to so many people concerned of whether their parents made it through the storm or they didn't know whether their sister made it. that's top of mind for a lot of people right now. and in the days and weeks to come, the red cross hopes to start reconnecting family members. >> absolutely. i mean, there are lots of groups here doing good work from the search and rescue we saw from team rubikon to the assistance from samaritans purse. there are lots of people helping. i wonder, though, aside from the tangible support as people will need, wean e in the u.s. that there's -- we know in the u.s. that there's often medical assistance, physical and psychological even if basic. is the red cross offering that type of support? you talked about the anxiety and the worrying you're seeing from people who are rescued from
these islands. >> so at the red cross, one of our big goals is offer that emotional support and just being there for people. so right now, people are coming to the red cross and asking for us to connect them to services in the community. people have so much uncertainty. they just don't even know what their next step is. and so at the bahamas red cross, they're here offering hugs but also offering really tangible help about how to connect to services. i think people don't really think about the emotional toll and all the uncertainty that lays ahead. we're not finished with hurricane season. so people are still worried about what weather might come in the next coming months. right now a lot of people just don't know where they're going to sleep tomorrow, or some have been sleeping on the street now for four, five days without access to food and clean water. there are a lot of -- there's a lot of need. >> reporter: yeah. >> humanitarian aid is working
together to provide the aid. >> reporter: i apologize for jumping in there. as you'd imagine, we're having some technical difficulties going through a signal in the u.s., the satellite signal, and we're in the same city. i thank you for speaking with us for a few minutes this morning to understandis supporting the thousands of people in the bahamas who need that support. christi and alex, back to you. we're a few minutes from sunrise. the flights expected to start, you'll hear the propellers in the background, as efforts to evacuate those who want to leave grand bahama, who want to leave abaco specifically from this helipo heliport, this airport, will get underway soon. >> thank you so much. we're so lucky to have you there. we will be checking back over the course of the morning. thanks. democratic lobbist j isbist demers was the first one from

one who doesn't win or finishes behind the other. it will have a damaging effect. help us understand the significance of this moment for bernie sanders and elizabeth warren in new hampshire. >> well, historically our next-door neighbor candidate wins the new hampshire primary. and if history bears out what we've seen, we have in 2020 two neighbors running, elizabeth warren from massachusetts, and bernie sanders from vermont. and so you know, the battle for new hampshire is really the battle for their own back yard. and so one candidate, assuming it's a neighbor who wins, that candidates going to have a lot of momentum coming out of new hampshire. the other candidate is going to i think struggle because there is an expectation that they have to win the state in order to have the momentum to move into the southern states, south carolina, afterwards. >> okay. i want to talk about cory booker. he's earned 27 new endorsements
which makes him the leader in new hampshire with 80 key backers, as i understand it. it includes two state senators, 11 state representatives, the mayor of concord, dozens of democratic activists. what is it about senator booker, mr. demmer, that's attracting this kind of support now, and how will new hampshire, if at all, modify, change perhaps the trajectory of what he does? >> reporter: -- >> yeah. i think cory booker is an extremely likeable person. what people see him, they warm up to him. but he has a very unique message, and i think a unique career that a lot of people relate to. that is he has a message of unifying america, unity is the basic theme. and i think there's an awful lot of people who believe that this country is divided beyond anything we'ven seen before. that the next president of the united states has a mammoth task of bringing us back together.
we actually see president trump whose approach is a divide and conquer approach. i think most americans feel like that's not the kind of government they want. so coory booker hasural -- cory booker has really talked about bringing people together, unifying this country based upon the goals and aspirations that we all share. and i think that has resonated with people as they look at these candidates, they don't just judge them here in new hampshire on where they stand on the issues, but they judge them on their personal message. they judge them on likability. i've often said this is the biggest job interview in the country. because people in new hampshire take it so seriously, they come out, they confront and talk to these candidates face to face, and it's one of the few places where that type of campaigning and politics can tame place. >> jim democrid he meaners, thau

even though hurricane dorian has passed, there's still a serious lingering threat here. we're talking about water-borne illnesses. we've talked a lot this summer about the flesh-eating bacteria and cholera and hepatitis. it's frightening, and then you think of the hurricane coming into the carolinas and mixing up the water. jacqueline howard cnn writer for health and wellness is with us now. what are the real risks of that? >> there are risks and that's because after a hurricane, like you said, we do see a lot of flooding. that floodwater can carry with it all types of bacteria, pathogens, and waterborne diseases. some examples of that as you mentioned do include flesh-eating disease. the clinical term is necrotizing fasciitis. it happens when bacteria enters the skin through an open cut or
wound and leads to a severe infection that can break down tissue under the skin. and the reason why we see this happening in some cases, we saw it after hurricane harvey for instance in the houston year, is because while you're leaning up after a hurricane, you might scratch yourself. that can leave an open wound or cut. if you come in contact with the floodwater, boom, you're at risk of an infection. it's rare but it happens. >> so many of these people don't have the resources to -- they're not equipped to deal with these types of things. what are some of the basic things they can do to make sure they don't get this? >> exactly. basic things -- keeping any open windo wounds covered and cleaned. disinfect everything that you can. and be mindful of the risks. that's most important. >> thank you so much. >> thank you. >> great information there. next hour starts in a moment. stay close.
