2:00 am
alisyn camerota and john berman. >> welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world. it is friday, november 15th. it's 5:00 here in new york because this is a special edition of "new day" and cnn's coverage of the impeachment inquiry into president trump. this morning, day two of the hearings. this morning, former ambassador to ukraine, marie yovanovitch will testify. she claims she was the target of a smear campaign, allegedly orchestrated by rudy giuliani and carried out by president trump's media allies like sean hannity. yovanovitch is expected to spell out how she was recalled by president trump, who told the ukrainian prosecute that yovanovitch was going to go through some things. later today, house investigators will go behind closed doors to question a diplomat who reportedly overheard president trump ask ambassador to the e.u., gordon sondland, about the, quote, investigation about the bidens, in the july 25th phone call.
2:01 am
and form, a long-time employee with the office of management and budget is expected to break ranks and testify about the hold jeup of military to ukraine. if you listen closely this morning, you will hear just how carefully democrats are choosing their words. house speaker nancy pelosi is making the case that the president's actions constitute bribery. that's a specific word that's listed in the constitution as an impeachable offense. "the washington post" reports that focus groups in key battleground states says that bribery is the most compelling description of the president's conduct. this is a big day. a lot to get to. let's go to cnn's suzanne malveaux outside the hearing rooms. >> reporter: we're just four hours away from her testimony. yovanovitch's testimony has attracted media from around the world. there's media staffers who overnighted here in the house, in the hallway to save their
2:02 am
camera positions. early this morning, i spoke with a friend of yovanovitch saying this is round three ff her. round one was enduring the bullying. round two was the smear campaign by president trump. round three, she expects to face off with attacks from republicans. this morning, marie yovanovitch returns to capitol hill for the second public impeachment hearing this week. the former u.s. ambassador to ukraine targeted in president trump's july 25th phone call with the ukrainian leader, where according to the rough transcript, mr. trump called her, bad news, and despite having fired her months earlier, cautioned, she's going to go through some things. >> interestingly, i think what we have going on here is a potential confluence of both the political self-interests of the president, getting her out of the way so he could do his deed in ukraine. >> reporter: in her private deposition, yovanovitch was warned to watch my back because of trump lawyer rudy giuliani and his associates.
2:03 am
on wednesday, deputy assistant secretary of state george kent described giuliani building a smear campaign against yovanovitch. >> i became alarmed as the efforts bore fruit. it hampered u.s. efforts to accomplish rapport with the zelensky administration in ukraine. >> reporter: nancy pelosi and democrats intensifying their stance on impeachment. >> i said it's perfectly wrong. it's bribery. >> reporter: while the president praised his republican allies. >> the republicans, they stick together. i mean, they have really stuck. >> reporter: as they continue their defense of trump, saying the impeachment witnesses so far, only have second-hand information. >> we heard from the witnesses, was that they had never spoken to president trump. >> reporter: speaker pelosi shut that down. >> don't fall into the second-hand stuff. that's such a fraudulent proposition put forth by the
2:04 am
republicans. >> reporter: but republicans' argument could end later today, when david holmes, a state department staffer, who overheard a phone call between trump and u.s. ambassador to the e.u., gordon sondland, appears behind closed doors. his boss, top u.s. diplomat to ukraine, bill taylor, testified his staff member, says the conversation happened one day after president trump's call with the ukrainian leader. >> mr. sondland told president trump the ukrainians were ready to move forward. >> reporter: sondland will share his side of the story in public testimony next wednesday. and house democrats have high expectations. >> it's never too late to do the right thing. if the ambassador has some new memory, catch up, that he'll let the american public know about this phone conversation, as well. >> reporter: house investigators may have another closed-door deposition hearing this weekend. that is with mark sandy, with the office of management and budget. he would shed some light on how
2:05 am
that money, that aid, was held up, and how it was released and when, to ukraine, just following the money, if you will. that will be a special deposition session to be held on saturday, john. so, we'll be here over the weekend, as well. >> yeah. there's a lot to learn in public today. also behind closed doors. suzanne, thank you for being there. keep us posted over the next several hours. new details this morning about the california school shooting that left two students dead and three injured in 16 seconds. police say no motive is known at this point. and it's unclear if there's any connection between the victims and the shooter. cnn's stephanie elam is live outside of the high school where this all happened. stephanie, i know it's even earlier there. what are you learning this morning? >> reporter: good morning, john. talking about just 16 seconds for this alleged shooter to walk on to his high school campus, pull a backpack over, open it up, and pull out a .45 pistol and begin shooting. he shot one student without saying a word.
2:06 am
seemed to clear a jam inside of the gun, according to law officials, and then, went on to shoot four more students before turning the gun on himself and shooting himself in the head. obviously, when students start to hear this before school actually began, there was mayhem. take a listen to what students were saying. >> i heard the first shot and everyone thought it was a balloon. and it got really quiet. and then, two more shots went. and then, everyone just started running out of school. >> we were waiting outside of the locker room because it wasn't open yet. and all of a sudden, we were with all of our friends and we heard the gunshots. we're like, let's go. let's run. >> reporter: and in all of that running, children were running everywhere, into neighborhoods, seeking refuge inside neighbors' homes from the school. we know two children lost their lives. a 16-year-old girl died at the hospital and a 14-year-old boy also died at the hospital.
2:07 am
one patient remains there in critical condition, at this one particular hospital. one person was treated and released. we believe they were all students who were shot there. the other thing to note about this, as well, is that there were three law enforcement officers who were dropping off their students at saugus high school and heard the shots and began triaging the students that were hurt and getting them the aid they needed. they could have saved lives because they followed instincts and responded so quickly. >> thank you so much. we're going to speak to law enforcement there this morning about what they have learned overnight. thank you for all of that. what do we expect from today's testimony? and what does rudy giuliani plan to do if he is thrown under the bus? we have giuliani's new plan, next.

welcome to fowler, indiana. home to three of bp's wind farms. which, every day, generate enough electricity to power over 150,000 homes. and of course, fowler. at bp, we see possibilities everywhere. you are watching cnn's special coverage of the impeachment hearings, as we preview the second public hearing. this morning, lawmakers will hear from former u.s. ambassador to ukraine marie yovanovitch. witnesses say she was pushed out of her job because of a smear campaign orchestrated by rudy giuliani. here to talk about what we expect, is abby phillip and jim bakker, who served as general counsel of the fbi. great to have you both here. to understand what marie yovanovitch endured, you need to
2:13 am
understand the media allies and state department has said, making stuff up out of whole cloth about her because she was in the way of this corrupt ukrainian oligarch, whom she wanted investigated, but who was actually paying some of president trump's friends and allies. and so, they wanted her gone. >> yeah. >> she's going to explain what it feels like to be in an upside-down world. all of the things she had spent years and years working on, pushing ukraine to address corruption, were being turned on its head. and she was being accused of standing in the way of corruption by people known to be corrupt. and on top of that, you have a conservative conspiratorial ecosphere, which is shaean hanny is part of this. there was a point where they
2:14 am
tried to go to sean hannity and his producers to find out where the heck all of this information was even coming from. >> the state department -- she believes, made a phone call to sean hannity, saying where are you getting your information? >> they knew that is a direct line to the president and that was how this information was getting straight into the white house. so, she's going to be able to explain all of that. and i think it will be really fascinating. it's a big window in how information gets to the president from some of the sort of dark corners of, not only the internet, but the corrupt corners of ukraine. >> i agree this is fascinating, the conservative allies, as part of this. but you don't need that because you have the president's own words. and you have marie yovanovitch, as well and the phone call to president zelensky. this is p-104. at the bottom of the page, reading her this phone call, well, she's going to go through some things. what did you understand that to
2:15 am
mean? yovanovitch answers, i didn't know what it meant. i was very concerned. i still am. question, did you feel threatened? yovanovitch says, yes. one of the things that's interesting here, jim, is that yovanovitch is not a direct witness to the phone call. she was gone by that point. but she is a witness to rudy giuliani's actions, the months' long actions behind the scenes there. and i also think she might be bait, for this temptation, that republicans on the committee, are going to have to really resist because if they go after her hard, she is, again, one of the career public officials with a decorated record. >> yeah. that doesn't seem to matter so far. they're willing to go after a lot of different people in a lot of different bases. i wonder why they are calling her this early. i'm worried about it because there is a lot of, as abby was saying, there's a lot of facts and things that she's been through, so to speak,
2:16 am
paraphrasing the president. why are they calling her so early? because she doesn't have direct knowledge of phone calls with the president and the ukrainian president. >> you think it would be trouble for the democrats? >> i was worried about that. when speaker pelosi talked about bribery and brought that word up again, i went and looked at the federal bribery statute and focused on the word corrupt. in order to prove a crime under that statute, and this is not a criminal proceeding, it struck me that when you talk about corruption, in connection with bribery, you have to have intent to do an official act in exchange of something for value. this is about corruption. what they did to her was corrupt, getting her out of the way so they could engage in the types of activities they want to engage in, from a variety of different angles, the ukrainians and giuliani and his cohort. maybe this is part of telling that story, explaining the
2:17 am
corrupt intent that all of the actors had and hopefully linking it to the president. obviously, if the facts are there, and trying to think about what they're doing. that's the best i can make of this. otherwise, i'm worried it will be a distraction and she will be open to criticism from the republicans. you don't know anything. you were gone by may. >> that's a good preview and everyone should be prepared to see that. but giuliani was making a ton of money from ukraine and ukrainian sources. coming up, we'll figure out what he will do if he is thrown under the bus. >> also somebody else answering questions, albeit behind closed doors, david holmes. he said he heard the phone call between president trump and the u.s. ambassador, that surprised during the first public hearing. sergio's coffee tastes spectacular. because costa rica is spectacular. so we support farmers who use natural compost. to help keep the soil healthy. and the coffee delicious.

2:22 am
welcome back to cnn's special coverage of the impeachment hearings. after today's public hearing, which will be interesting in and of itself, lawmakers will hear from a key state department official who says he overheard
2:23 am
president trump discussing the investigation of the bidens on a phone call, between president trump and ambassador gordon sondland. that happens behind closed doors. tomorrow, the first official with the budget office is expected to break ranks and speak to lawmakers, as well, in private. back with us, abby phillip and jim baker. according to jim holmes, who overheard the phone call, because he could hear president trump's voice pleading through a cell phone in kiev, the day after the phone call between the two presidents, what does it add to the story? >> my head almost exploded, in terms of the operational security debacle that is. the president and his ambassador having a phone call. it's possible that it was a secure cell phone. but they're talking about this. you know, it's just -- it's so bad, in terms of security. that was really -- that drove me
2:24 am
out of my mind. look, the claim from the republican side has been that nobody knows -- nobody heard exactly what the president was saying. nobody was in direct contact. this is all hearsay here's somebody that heard the words of the president himself. and who heard the word from the president's mouth, the investigations, in the context of a conversation with gordon sondland about the call. it undercuts that to some degree. i don't think this will be the final word. but this is a step along the path that i think the democrats are going, which is probably the right thing to do, to try to get at people who spoke directly to the president about this whole mess. >> david holmes is described by colleagues, smart, confident, long-time officer. his main job was to determine what was going on in ukrainian politics. good luck. and he often accompanied top officials as a notetaker. okay. that would be helpful. he is trained to listen to top
2:25 am
u.s. officials and diplomats for any sort of bread crumbs of what's happening in ukrainian politics. >> even potentially if the president might happen to be on the phone. he's trying to listen to that, too, evidently. the big question, though, for him, is going to be in this closed-door deposition, why now? why did it take him so long to reveal the existence of this conversation? >> to bill taylor. >> bill taylor said he was told by his aide last week. taylor testified several weeks ago. and so, it's a real question. i think it will be a source of pressure for him on the republican side. and it's one that i think everybody ought to have some annalses to. maybe he didn't think it was material. maybe something jogged his memory. maybe he thought he would have an opportunity to talk about it w but was never actually called. the other thing would be, what else is there? is there more about the
2:26 am
conversation he heard, other than the word investigations, that would shed light that came out of trump's mouth. the rest of what taylor testified to, was sondland told this aide, after the fact, that the president was more concerned about biden than ukraine. was anything else overheard in that conversation, that would tie that directly to something the president himself actually said. i think that's becoming kind of a big source of contention on the republican side. the democrats will have to make sure this potential witness is someone who, you know, if he comes forward publicly, can stand up to that questioning. >> we'll wait to hear what he is asked behind closed doors. meanwhile, talking about rudy giuliani. i think it was a fascinating discussion you brought up before that we may hear a lot more about him because he has the width of corruption involved in everything having to do with ukraine right now. he was asked in the interview with "the guardian," this british newspaper, about whether or not he was going to be thrown
2:27 am
under the bus, if he was worried that the president would throw him under the bus. are you worried? he says, i'm not, but if i do, i have a very, very good insurance. if he does, all my hospital bills will be paid. so, look, there's people who read that -- >> colorful. >> -- and thought, rudy giuliani is saying, he has insurance if the president throws him under the bus. his lawyer says he was kidding, if he gets run over, he has insurance to pay for it. all that said, rudy giuliani is a central player here. >> most certainly. >> and may be the window into the corruption you're talking about. talk about how you think he will be used in the coming days? >> he will be very difficult to get on the witness stand because he is, as far as we know, he is the president's lawyer. he was the president's lawyer, and so, there is going to be a claim, i think, that he was -- his communications with the president are privileged. i don't think it will be
2:28 am
possible for congress to get that out. however, to the extemnt he was engaging in all of the quasi diplomatic activities, i don't know how he will claim privilege of that. i think the democrats will build getting him on the stand. he will resist. he will go to court. i don't think that will happen. but this comment about the insurance policy. i read it. it seemed like a joke to me. as abby was saying about mr. holmes, why didn't he come forward before? donald trump traffics in fear. and employees of the federal government and people around him are afraid. and so, i think that's one of the main issues here. so, to the extent that people aren't afraid, they'll come forward, we'll see what happens. >> here's one thing i think giuliani is important for. the republican argument is that trump was so concerned about corruption, this is why he brought all of this up. what yovanovitch is going to be doing, is how jgiuliani was pressing for people who were corrupt. and that turns the argument on its head.
2:29 am
>> george kent said that giuliani was working with corrupt ukrainians. >> and why aren't democrats saying more about how much more money giuliani was making from ukraine than hunter biden? they don't bring that up often. maybe that will come out at some point today. thank you very much. great to talk to you. all week, cnn has been traveling outside the beltway to see how people across the country feel about the impeachment hearings. up next, we hear from voters in arizona. are their opinions on this shifting? make family-sized meals fast, and because it's a ninja foodi, it can do things no other oven can, like flip away. the ninja foodi air fry oven, the oven that crisps and flips away. ithere's my career...'s more to me than hiv. my cause... and creating my dream home. i'm a work in progress. so much goes into who i am. hiv medicine is one part of it. prescription dovato is for adults who are starting

past, his history. there wasn't anything that stood out. he wasn't a loner, wasn't awkward, involved in student activities and student athlete. this was out of the blue, shocking everyone that knew him. >> that is shocking, sheriff. this is often a profile for the school shooters like this. they're disaffected, isolated, bullied, lonely somehow. and he doesn't fit any of that. what have you learned? >> to date -- to date, he doesn't fit that expectation. we're still digging and going through all of the social media. our homicide investigators, being assisted by the fbi and the atf as we trace the weapon involved. still, we don't have the answers we're looking for. >> let's talk about the weapon. where did he get that gun? >> that is still a question. it's a .45 semiauto pistol.
2:46 am
he used six rounds that he fired and saved the last round for himself. we're looking to see where it came from and how he came in possession of it. turns out, since 2010, this is the 142nd shooting in a school, where a minor had access to a firearm. >> god. it's just horrible to have this pattern repeat over and over and have to report on this time and again. >> yes. >> what can you tell us, sheriff, about the shooter's family? was there any history of violence there? >> nothing that would stand out, no. his father passed away of natural causes in 2017. and living with his mother. really nothing remarkable. history of calls for service at the residence doesn't jump out at all. >> some is suggesting that the father was an avid hunter. that the father may have taught him to shoot, that the father had guns. can you make a connection whether or not he used a family
2:47 am
gun? >> that still hasn't been determined yet. we're working closely with all of the investigators. we'll -- hopefully we'll have answers for that today. >> what can you tell us about the victims? was there any connection that you have figured out between this shooter and the five victims, some of whom are still in the hospital and struggling this morning. or was indiscriminate indiscriminately? >> well, the video surveillance shows he walked into the quad area where the freshmen congregate. and he was just standing there, really not engaged with anyone, by himself. at one point, he took off his backpack, reached in, retrieved the pistol from his backpack and fired one round. appeared he had a gun jam. he cleared the malfunction and then fired again at the remaining four victims and saved the last round for himself. so, the whole thing transpired in 16 seconds. there was no -- he wasn't chasing anyone. it appeared to be who was around
2:48 am
him, available at the time, he decided to do it. >> god, it's so mystifying and sickening to have to report all this. sheriff, we know you're looking for answers. we look forward to getting those, as well. thank you very much for coming on "new day." >> anytime, alisyn. >> john? former massachusetts governor deval patrick has officially entered the democratic race. what will his role be? what are his answers? before you say, oh, oh, it's so, so late, this changes nothing -- stay tuned. what drew me to capital allocation in health sciences was the potential to help many people through investments that help fund medical innovation. my team and i often choose to invest at the very early stages of human trials. investing lets me use everything i've learned as a doctor to help make a positive impact. so that's why i go beyond the numbers.

2:53 am
it is official. a new democrat has joined the crowded 2020 race. former massachusetts governor, deval patrick, made his announcement thursday morning. joining me now is terry mcauliffe, former governor of virginia, and former gubernatorial candidate in florida. i want to start with you here. deval patrick has come out against medicare for all. he has suggested or tried to position himself maybe somewhere between joe biden and the more progressive candidates. what do you see his role in this campaign is? where is he running? >> first of all, we have to take the entrance of governor patrick seriously. he's governor two times over of an important state, with a good record intact. i believe his entrance into this race, frankly, will create more of a problem for joe biden. i think he's going to try to, basically, be the alternative to joe biden, and say i can get
2:54 am
moderates and extend my reach into what might be otherwise progressive lanes of the party. i would also suggest that maybe governor patrick is also concluding that in this race, where no one yet has been able to penetrate the vice president's hold on the black vote, largely in south carolina, could he give him a run for the money, especially when you consider joe biden's standing right now has mostly been buoyed by the fact that the black vote has been with him, along with moderates who have made him their choice. >> terry, you know, governor mcauliffe, deval patrick admits it's not a hail mary. it's a hail mary from two stadiums over. no matter how hard wes clark tried to make this about his ideas, he had to answer questions about what was wrong with the other candidates? why was he getting in so late? and that's something that
2:55 am
governor patrick will have to face. >> i think the same thing for michael bloomberg. we have a great field of candidates. let me start right from there. hand-wringing democrats worried to death, i don't buy it. a poll out today has joe biden winning in north carolina. well, if we're winning north carolina, we're winning ohio, we're winning the electoral college. so, we've got great candidates running today. anybody is entitled to run. john, you make a valid point. it is hard at this stage. you now have -- we're about 70 days away from the kickoff in iowa. then, you have the big contests. you have to spend about $25 million in the first couple contests. and then, march 3rd, just a couple months away, that's a $7,500 day. the new candidate, michael bloomberg, he doesn't have to worry about it. patrick has to have people on the ground. and how do you raise money that quickly? >> it is interesting.
2:56 am
unlike michael bloomberg, patrick is going to run everywhere. he is going to try to qualify for materially states. bloomberg is not doing new hampshire or iowa. i want to change focus and we're talking about iowa and new hampshire, march 3rd. saturday, there's an election in louisiana. the democrat is up for re-election. and president trump was in louisiana last night, campaigning for the republican. you have personal experience with president trump coming to campaign in the days before the election. when you were running for governor of florida, he was there. how much does it help the republican candidate? >> when i was a candidate for governor of florida, we weren't in a situation that we're currently in. and the issues involving impeachment confronting this president. the president has a loyal base of support. can we acknowledge, is this not strange that the sitting republican president is having to go down and to louisiana, and
2:57 am
campaign for a republican, when, quite frankly, that's a state that donald trump won handily, just as kentucky was, and we saw how that went. my guess is, if the suburbs do what they did in virginia, if they do what they did in kentucky, and with trump's latest visit, matsybe it will b the kiss of death and we'll see john bel edwards re-elected to a second term as governor. >> 20 seconds on the race, govern center. >> john bel edwards has delivered. health care is the big issue. that's why we won in kentucky. i make the point that donald trump could not come into virginia last week. he could not drive 1.4 miles into virginia. he wasn't wanted. as you know, we picked up the house and the senate with the governor's mansion for the first time in 26 years. we have all three, now, donald trump, couldn't come to virginia. we're winning on health care, lowering prescription drug prices. that's what john bel edwards did
2:58 am
in louisiana. he's going to win. we won kentucky. we're going to keep louisiana. we will have won nine governorships since donald trump was elected. four legislative seats. ten chambers and house seats. the republican party is crumbling under donald trump. he will be the construction of the republican party. >> we'll see. we'll see when they vote on saturday how much of that ends up being true in louisiana itself. governor mcauliffe, mayor gillom, thanks for joining us. >> thanks for having us. we're hours away from more public impeachment hearings. cnn's special coverage continues right now. former ambassador to ukraine, marie yovanovitch set to testify this morning. >> david holmes was the aide who overheard this conversation. >> in a real court of law, that would be subjected to as hearsay. the republicans are coming. sir, our poll numbers are going through the roof. you think we could keep this
2:59 am
going? the republicans have really stuck together. it's a beautiful thing to see. i heard the first two shots. when i heard the third one, i started running. >> there's a school shooting in california. we are complicit if we fail to act. >> this is "new day," with alisyn camerota and john berman. >> welcome to our viewers in the united states and all around the world. it is friday, november 15th. it's 6:00 in new york. and this is a special edition of "new day." cnn's coverage of the impeachment inquiry into president trump. and we're getting closer to the next round of public hearings. and there it went. >> wow. >> we just had a look inside the hearing room, where -- >> and then, suspiciously, it was cut off, via satellite. >> we'll discuss why they don't want us to see inside the hearing. the lights are off. they're setting up. we'll see much more from there later today, when we hear from ousted u.s. ambassador to
3:00 am
several witnesses say she was the target of a smear campaign by rudy giuliani and corrupt ukrainian insiders. yovanovitch said she felt threatened by the president and may have been an obstacle to his pressure campaign on ukrainian leaders. she is expected to provide insight into giuliani's effort to target political opponents. >> there will also be drama behind the scenes. this afternoon a diplomat who reportedly overheard the call between trump and sondland will testify in private. tomorrow the first witness from office of management and budget is to testify. he could shed light on why those $400 million in congressionally approved military aid was frozen to ukraine. what was the story he was getting? our coverage begins with suzanne malveaux live on capitol hill. another busy day. >> reporter: that's right,
