tv   CNN Newsroom with Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto  CNN  November 1, 2019 6:00am-7:00am PDT

6:00 am
jim sciutto. breaking news this friday morning. i'm jim sciutto in washington. she had the plan, but now she's telling us how she will pay for it. presidential candidate elizabeth warren unveiling the $20 trillion proposal just moments ago and she is still pledging there will be no middle class tax hike necessary to fund it. cnn political correspondent mj lee has more on this. mj, explain the details here. $20 trillion. how does warren plan realistically to pay for that without a middle class tax increase? >> yeah, jim, this is an issue that she has been being asked about for weeks now and has been criticized a lot for not having an answer to how she plans to pay for medicare for all. and now she has put out a plan detailing how she planned to do that.
6:01 am
and the big question that she has been asked since she hasn't been able to answer is will middle class tax goes up under medicare for all? today she is saying no. she writes, we don't need to raise taxes on the middle class by one penny to finance medicare for all. now politically speaking, this is a very interesting split screen because, of course, medicare for all is written by bernie sanders and sanders himself said this week he doesn't believe it's yet necessary to put out a full detained plan explaining how to pay for it. and warren saying it's important to fight any misinformation out there by putting out this detailed plan. let's talk about the numbers. the price tag is $20.5 trillion of new federal spending over ten years. she is saying that this will be paid for in a number of different ways as you see on the screen there, including employers continuing to make their contributions. that accounts for at least around half of the total. and then there are things like cracking down on tax evasion and fraud and targeting the
6:02 am
financial sector and large corporations with more taxes. and then beefing up the wealth tax. this is her signature plan on taxing the wealth of some of the we wealthiest americans. she's already put out that plan and now saying i amend that and i'll have the billionaires pay a little more than what i initially imagined. there are a lot of numbers here that analysts and experts are going to chew over and her critics will certainly say this is still not realistic. you can't really get to that number, but again, politically speaking, it's significant that she has finally put out a plan trying to answer questions about how she plans on paying for all of this. and just one quick financial note and an important note at that, she says that she's going to put out yet another plan in the coming weeks on how she wants to transition to medicare for all. this is significant because bernie sanders imagines the transition period being four years. so if she's going to put out a plan of her own on transitioning to medicare for all, perhaps she
6:03 am
could envision a scenario where that transition is longer than what bernie sanders envisioned. so we just don't have the answer to that. >> $20 trillion. that's a thousand billion for each of those trillions. mj lee, thank you. christine romans and senior political analyst ron brownstein joining me now along with mj. christine, first, help me with the math here. what sticks out to me is more than half of this $20.5 trillion figure is going to be covered by corporations it looks like if you put the numbers back on the screen. $8.8 trillion from employers. 5.8 from financial companies and big corporations, large corporations. first of all, they're not going to like that. >> no, they're not. >> when you look at these numbers, is this realistic? does this math add up? >> this is why she's not popular along the c suite elites. they look at her trying to remake capitalism and health care and they are the ones who are going to have to pay for it. you look at cracking down on tax
6:04 am
evasion and fraud. she's clearly points out this is going to be focused on wealthy americans. she talks about her wealth tax which is 3 cents on every dollar of net worth above a billion. she already had that. she's going to add another 3 cents for people who have net worth above a billion. also the investor class. she wants to change the long-term capital gains and have those taxed annually, not just a point of sale and have that rate to be much higher than the current 20% for long-term capital gain and 37% for the richest americans who do that. so this is clearly a populist positioning. do the numbers work out? you'll have everybody crunching those numbers all day today. certainly the $20.5 trillion is less than some of the other plans we've seen but she puts the burden on the backs of investors and companies here. >> a trillion here. trillion there. eventually talking about real money. ron brownstein, we should note the big picture here as well that medicare for all, which was
6:05 am
an idea that was from the fringes of the far left. now you have two of the leading candidates, this as a central part of their platform. and if we can show the numbers from the latest iowa polling which just came out today, iowa one of the early voting states, look where warren and sanders are. it shows that these kinds of proposals have appeal among democratic voters. >> yeah, there's a piece of the democratic audience that liked this. a couple other realities here. first, jim, this is a very plausible thing to raise $20.5 trillion. $24.5 trillion is at the very low end of estimates of what medicare for all will cost. the urban institute just estimated it will cost $32 trillion over ten years. and you know, she will -- maybe the transition plan helps keep down the cost but a lot of the way she keeps down the cost, deep in the plan, she severely cuts rates reimbursement rates for providers, including hospitals down to about what medicare now pays which is a lot
6:06 am
less than private insurance and a lot of questions about even with some adjustments she talks about, whether hospitals can survive at that level of reimbursement. if you raise the level of reimbursement you raise the cost and the tax that you have to then summon. by the way, even $20.5 trillion is nearly as much as the personal income tax, the total personal income tax is projected to raise over the next decade. and on the politics it's worth noting that support for this idea is -- does exist in the democratic caucus, but it's stalled out at about half of house democrats. only about half of house democrats are supporting the legislation to do this. and i was in a group of columnists that interviewed nancy pelosi earlier this week. and she said maybe medicare for all is a destination but it's not a place to start. so the prospects of this, even with a democratic president, would remain very, you know, uncertain. >> listen, a little more than a year ago, less than a year, the whole government was shut down over the issue of obamacare which was a smaller issue.
6:07 am
the government shut down a number of years ago but then another attempt failed narrowly in the republican-led congress. mj lee, this establishes a clear difference between elizabeth warren and bernie sanders here in terms of how this will be paid for without taxing middle class at all. is that a deliberate move by elizabeth warren to distinguish herself there? >> absolutely. this kind of collision course is really politically fascinating. the fact that medicare for all is entirely bernie sanders' idea and a whole bunch of progressives have gotten behind that idea but now warren is almost sort of saying what you have put out and the details that you've put out clearly isn't enough. she's very aware of the fact that the last debate, the cnn/"new york times" debate, she got a ton of criticism from her rivals. she has been getting asked this question by reporters on the road, by some voters as well. i think we've reached a point where we saw the position that she was taking to be politically
6:08 am
untenable. for her to get asked over and over, how are you going to pay for this. will middle class tax goes up? and for her to not have a clear answer when, i think her brand has so much become the candidate that has a plan for everything. i think she quickly realized or actually, i shouldn't even say quickly. it's taken her a long time to realize that that positioning was not tenable. and i think the fact that now she has a plan for paying for bernie sanders' medicare for all while at the same time sanders is saying i don't think it's necessary to put out those full details yet is really fascinating. >> mj lee, ron brownstein, thanks very much. christine, if i could ask you to stay. this, of course, the other breaking news. 128,000 jobs added in october. this is higher than anticipated, particularly in a month where you had a major strike going on. of course, the gm strike now resolved. how did those numbers manage to stay up despite losing tens of thousands of manufacturing jobs to the strike? >> yeah, you can see that gm
6:09 am
strike, that six-week gm strike but the overall numbers were stronger than expected and showed still steady hiring. what the president is tweeting about this morning is that you had upward revisions for august and september. september was stronger as well. so the end of the summer was stronger than anticipated. manufacturing was a weak spot because of that gm strike. manufacturing has been faltering in recent weeks. in less than an hour we'll get a really important manufacturing number here. food services, though, strong hiring in restaurants and bars and in business. health care had another 15,000. the segue from health care, 400,000-some health care jobs added over the last year. this is an important part of the economy to get right whoever is trying to tinker with health care, and manufacturing losing 36,000. that's 100% of the gm strike. the unemployment rate, 3.6%. that's up just 0.1%. i'm not worried about that movement. and the reason why is because
6:10 am
325,000 people came into the labor market. that means ten years into a jobs recovery they are starting to believe it. and they're starting to go out there and look for jobs. so now they're being added into the labor market. that's why you saw that number go up. still, the earning pace of hiring, it's not as robust as it's been the past few years but still holding in there, jim. >> it is. and another number coming out in less than an hour on manufacturing. we'll be watching that. christine romans, thanks very much. as the house prepares for the next phase of the impeachment inquiry, we'll soon see public hearings, you and i are going to be able to watch these as well as full witness transcripts released. next, a new poll shows the high stakes and the real split evident here for democrats. plus, a fast-moving fire breaking out overnight forcing thousands from their homes in california. this happening across the state. fire crews nearly trapped in the flames in this one. we'll be live there. and racial slurs, threats, bullying. think that will get you kicked off facebook?

6:16 am
bolton, that will be key. house speaker nancy pelosi says the first public hearings will begin. you and i can watch these. this is all happening as a new abc news/"washington post" poll shows the country split right down the middle over whether the president should be impeached and removed from office. cnn's senior congressional correspondent manu raju is live on capitol hill. as we look at events today and in the coming days, certainly a partisan split here up on the hill, but we are entering a second phase with high stakes for both sides. >> yeah, no question about it, jim. but next week we'll be an interesting one because it's a busy one scheduled for -- it was a number of key witnesses behind closed doors. and there's a significant chance that none of these witnesses actually show because the people they have asked to come interview are, say, high up within the food chain of the white house and the state department, former officials, people who have yet to commit to come. that includes on monday a busy day with four people behind
6:17 am
closed doors, including john eisenberg, someone who heard those complaints about the president's phone call with ukrainian president zelensky and a top deputy for mick mulvaney, robert blair and former chief of staff for the manager independent, brian mccormack. amid questions about the role the energy secretary rick perry played in all of this. yet to get commitments for those ideas. and then later in the week top officials from the office of management and budget, when the office of management and budget indicated they have no interest in complying with the democratic request. and the big one later in the week in john bolton. someone who is said to have been very concerned about the efforts to push for -- to withhold ukrainian aid to push for these investigations into the president's rival. someone who has been mentioned throughout these closed door depositions, but he has yet to commit to coming through an attorney and said he would only come if he were yet to get a subpoena. he'd definitely come if he got a
6:18 am
subpoena. if the democrats don't get any cooperation next week, adam schiff is warning this could ultimately all get rolled into more evidence in the democrats' view of obstruction of congress before they move into that public phase which could happen the week after. so we are heading into a new phase, jim, but potentially next week we can see a lot of stonewalling from the white house. and democrats pushing back. >> true. >> although it's been notable that many of those officials and current ones have ignored the white house stonewalling and gone ahead and spoken. for more on how the white house is reacting to all of this, let's speak to senior washington correspondent joe johns. he is outside the white house this morning. joe, we saw house republicans stuck together yesterday under enormous pressure from the president and the white house here. does the white house believe its strategy is working? >> well, it's clear that the white house is happy with what happened over on the house side. the senate is the big deal for the president of the united states because if the president is impeached, the senate is
6:19 am
going to hold a trial and it's important for him to keep all the republicans together over there. and a question, of course, is how is he going to do that? one way to do that is certainly to reach out to the public and try to shore up your support there. the president suggesting in an interview with the "washington examiner" an 80-minute interview, that he might actually hold a fireside chat and read the partial transcript of that telephone call he had with the profit ukraine on july 25th, which is the basis for a lot of the stuff going on in the impeachment inquiry. and so the question is, why would he do that? it's pretty clear the president is very skillful at creating a few different catch phrases which he uses to impart his message on a particular issue. the president has said again and again the call was perfect. no problem with the call. and, of course, as you know, jim, if you do that in a situation like that and you have
6:20 am
the megaphone, the president of the united states, your supporters are going to listen. so the president is hoping people won't talk about the questions of self-dealing and $400 million being held up from ukraine. >> right. speaking of self-dealing, and perhaps intentionally, the president snuck into the news cycle yesterday. a confirmation that he's moving his permanent residence from new york to florida. of course, notable, florida has no state taxes. was this about taxes? >> well, good question. what he did was he -- in september, he filled out a declaration of domicile stating that palm beach florida, which is where his mar-a-lago club is, would be the place where he intends to stay. his home in other words. and we do know that the taxes are very high in new york and new york city and all told for this president something like 16%. if he moves to florida, at least as domicile, certainly it will
6:21 am
be reduced. but also important to point out that the president has taken a lot of heat in new york city recently. cyrus vance, the manhattan da going after his tax returns. and he's not widely liked in new york city either. so he is closely associated with new york nonetheless, moving to florida he says. >> so closely associated that he's lived there for decades. joe johns, thank you. joining me to discuss this, jackie, author of "the washington post" power up and cnn national security and legal analyst susan hennessy, a former nsa attorney. the gop played up the fact that yesterday's vote, at least on the procedures of an impeachment inquiry was very much party line. two democrats leaving their party to join with republicans in voting against. do republicans have a point here when they say this shows this is a partisan impeachment inquiry? >> no, they don't because what we haven't seen here yet is the public aspect of this hearing
6:22 am
which is what the resolution accomplished yesterday. if anything, the fact that they're seizing on that argument shows how little strategy there is for the gop going ahead because what democrats did yesterday did really strengthen their hand politically. the gop had been clamoring for weeks to hold a vote in order to make this an official nonsecretive inquiry. and nancy pelosi did just that. and what yesterday's vote also showed is that democrats actually believe that they have a substantive case here. that they have enough to make this -- to make a public argument as to why the president should be impeached. >> fair point. i get it. and, of course, things could change when you have the public testimony. when you see, for instance, an alexander vindman in his army officer uniform testifying as to what he witnessed firsthand on this and you can see that changing public opinion, but we had a sample, susan hennessy, of what faces republicans who step out of line. francis rooney on this broadcast a couple of weeks ago told poppy
6:23 am
harlow, his mind was open to impeachment. have a listen. >> it's clear to me you're saying at this point you are not ruling out the possibility that this is an impeachable offense for the president. >> i don't think you can rule anything out until you know all the facts. >> okay. >> every time one of these people testifies, we get more information about what was going on over there. >> in the immediate hours after that, he was haranged by people in his district, elsewhere and within 24 hours, he announced he is retiring. that gives you an example of when you stick your neck out as a republican or even in the face of a public inquiry. >> it's one reason we saw so much pressure being brought to bear on republicans in the house to ensure this was a pure party line vote. that they really couldn't afford even one or two people crossing the aisle and having them forfeit this talking point. that this is a purely partisan endeavor. and that's because the republicans lost their other major talking point yesterday which is they've spent the past five or six weeks clamoring
6:24 am
about a procedural unfairness. >> they are still complaining they don't have -- you and i have talked about the history here. it's not entirely true but they're still complaining they don't have all the leeway they'd like. >> that said, the bare fact is they've still said the past couple of weeks claiming they wanted more process and procedures, claiming a wanted a vote and then voted against that. have been claiming they wanted open hear,s, that the closed proceedings are unfaur and now abruptly make this shift to oppose open hearings. that's a difficult position for republicans to maintain. >> new abc news/"washington post" poll shows the country split right down the middle. and we should note this is on impeachment and removal which is different from just impeachment. in there, the number that stood out was independents evenly split and with a slightly, and granted that's within the margin of error, against impeachment and removal. how troubling should that be for
6:25 am
democrats as we head into the 2020 cycle. >> while this feels like it's been going on for years already, we're really at the beginning. y the public part of this hearing is going to be important. what nancy pelosi and house democrats really showed yesterday is that it's all but inevitable this is going to be a public trial. it's going to make it to the senate. we'll see this on television. six days a week. up through potentially the new hampshire primary. and when you have people like alexander vindman, a very decorated iraq war, sober minded veteran, publicly, you know, agree to publicly testify before congress and before the public, you know, that doesn't bode well for this president, especially when all the arguments they've made so far have been on a procedural, tactical standpoint and not on substance. >> here's a new argument you're starting to hear. "the wall street journal" had this in their editorial yesterday. put the quote up on the screen. i'll paraphrase for time. democrats want to impeach mr. trump for asking a foreign
6:26 am
government to investigate his political rival for corruption though the probe never happened and for withholding aid to ukraine that in the end wasn't withheld. we're seeing a trial balloon on an argument that, okay, this was bad. it was an attempted abuse of power, but it didn't happen. therefore, it's not impeachable. does that argument stand up? >> it doesn't stand up. of course, attempting a crime is itself a crime. one reason we're seeing republicans resort to this is because it was successful and after the mueller report came out. it showed the president very clearly attempted to obstruct justice but mueller said, look, he was thwarted a lot of the times. he tried to do this but people didn't follow his -- >> also willing to accept foreign help for the investigation in the trump tower meeting. that was their defense there. they're going to try it whether you think oos substantive. >> it's not a particularly strong argument. the fact this is sort of the best they can come up with is an indication the substantive defense here just isn't there if the only thing you can say to defend someone's conduct is, well, it didn't work. he didn't get away with it.
6:27 am
and that's your defense to abuse of office. that doesn't sound like a winning strategy. >> susan, jackie, great to have you on. hope you have a good weekend. house republicans stand united on impeachment while two democrats did stray away from party lines. we'll ask one house democrat what that means for the future of this impeachment inquiry. that's coming up. pampers is here to help every parent love the changes a baby brings.

right now house democrats are pressing forward planning for the next phase. the public phase of their impeachment inquiry into the president. house speaker nancy pelosi has not given an exact timeline about when those hearings will go public. but last night she did tell stephen colbert she expects them to happen soon. i'm pleased to be joined by florida democratic congresswoman debbie wasserman-schultz. she serves on one of the committees investigating the president and hearing witnesses the last couple of weeks. we appreciate you taking the time this morning. >> my pleasure, jim. thank you. >> so you're well aware of the vote yesterday. republicans voted in lock step against these rules here. two democrats voted with republicans against them. i'm wondering, are you concerned that republicans were able to stick together here but democrats were not? >> what i'm concerned about is that republicans seem to be shrugging their shoulders at the president's gross violation of his oath of office and his massive abuse of power.
6:33 am
every american should be asking their own member of congress whether they think it's okay that the president broke the law, used his position of power to pressure the president of ukraine to -- by withholding foreign aid and trying to insist that he initiate investigations against the president's political opponents. that is unacceptable and not okay, and the republicans have sanctioned it. >> i get that argument, but the fact is, for this impeachment inquiry to proceed to the possibility of removal in the senate, you, democrats, have to convince some republicans, several republicans that that's true. and i thought there was a telling sign in this new abc news/"washington post" poll just out today that shows independents crucially split down the middle and if you put the numbers up on the screen, leaning against impeaching and removing the president. those are the independent numbers down there. 49% say no there. is that a sign that you're not
6:34 am
convincing folks outside the democratic party in sufficient numbers to support impeachment and removal? >> we're going through a process, jim. and we will, as we've approved -- as we approve the rules for the road of the impeachment inquiry yesterday, we'll move into the public phase of the inquiry. i think as the transcripts are released and the american people hear the evidence that i've been able to hear over the last number of weeks and a spotlight is shown on the witnesses that come before us and corroborate each of their own testimony that the president abused his power and pressured the president of a country that vitally needs our assistance to keep our foreign enemy, russia, at bay and withheld foreign aid and demanded investigations, pressured him to initiate investigations against his opponent in the public light that will, i think those numbers will change and the polling right now shows that more than 50% of the american people do
6:35 am
believe that the president should be impeached and removed. so that will play out. but no one comes to congress to impeach a president. i'm focused on lowering prescription drug costs, ending gun violence but we have to hold the president accountable because no one is above the law. >> you were in the room when tim morrison, the president's top adviser on russia and europe testified under oath. of course, we were not in the room. we have the benefit of having seen parts of his opening statement where he does say that what he heard on that call, he was worried about the political implications of it. it coming out. how that might affect the relationship. but he said not illegal in his view. can you tell us anything about how, you know, how he detailed that position and do you believe that his further testimony backed up that statement? >> you know, i can only generally talk about the deposition that we heard yesterday from mr. morrison. and that is to say that he most definitely corroborated, particularly ambassador taylor's
6:36 am
testimony and really virtually every witness that i have heard testimony that the president did, indeed, use the authority of his office to pressure the president of ukraine to initiate investigations against his opponent and the leverage that he used was withholding foreign aid and a vital meeting that president zelensky needed to be able to advance his efforts to keep russia at bay and reduce corruption. >> you are saying his private testimony corroborated the quid pro quo that there was a quid pro quo here? >> what i'm saying is that throughout the testimony, each witness has subsequently confirmed the direct line that the president's own words in the transcript of the call confirmed that he used the power of his office to try to get the -- as in his own words, zelensky to do us a favor, though, and initiate
6:37 am
these investigations. and he withheld foreign aid. and dangled the meeting that president zelensky vitally needed to be able to make sure we can keep our enemy at bay. >> i want to ask you about another -- you're well aware of the fiery exchange you had in a hearing earlier this week -- >> yes, i certainly am. >> i want to play that exchange just for folks at home who may not have seen it and then also get your reaction to ken cuccinel cuccinelli's response to it. then we'll come back. >> you and mr. trump don't want anyone who looks or talks differently than caucasian americans to be allowed into this country. >> that's false. >> i'm sorry. please don't interrupt me and i'd like the time back. >> that's defamatory. >> there's nothing defamatory. >> the gentle lady controls the time. you want to block all immigration and make life harder for immigrants and you'll pursue this heinous white supremacist ideology at all costs, even if it means making critically ill

children your collateral damage in the process. >> i am not a white supremacist as you alluded. >> you have had -- >> nor is the president. >> i'm under oath and she is literally protected to lie by what's called the speech and debate clause of the constitution. i'm not even sure she's aware of it, but it allows legislators, for good policy reasons, to be able to say anything. it's to leave them uninhibited. i don't think the founders ever intended for it to be a shield for lying and planting narratives out in the public. and that was what she was doing. she makes her speech. she wasn't at much of the committee hearing. she came in late on her smears, both me and the president. all completely false. and then wasn't there much longer. got on her broom and left. it was just a fly-by for her, and to get her little sound bite. >> do you stand by your
6:39 am
accusation of cuccinelli that the policy, the immigration policy led by him and the president is white supremacist in nature? >> what i stand by is that ken cuccinelli is the tip of the spear of the president's immigration policy that has persecuted and gone after people of color since day one of his presidency and that, yes, i used my ability as a member of the oversight committee to call that out and to insist, rightfully so, that ken cuccinelli has advanced a white supremacist ideology that i think is a thread through the president's immigration policy. h started his presidency by initiating a muslim ban that was repeatedly thrown out by the courts. the subject of the hearing itself was the separation, the persecution of sick children who have been allowed into the country that he sent a letter to and they had to -- they were
6:40 am
demanded to leave initially in 33 days until our oversight committee stopped that from happening by shining a spotlight on it. he advanced a policy of separating children from their parents at the border who were fleeing persecution. we've now required through this policy political applicants for asylum to stay in another country, living in tent cities and in horrible conditions? yes, ken cuccinelli is the tip of the spear of a white supremacist ideology that is the thread of the president's immigration policy targeting people of color. and i'm a member of congress on the oversight committee, and i had an opportunity to call it out, and i did, and i don't regret it. >> congresswoman -- >> patronizing comments about me but that's not surprising either. >> understood. thanks for explaining your position. debbie wasserman schultz, hope you have a good weekend. >> thank you so much. several hundred firefighters in southern california trying to battle a new wildfire that is
