tv   Early Start With Christine Romans and Laura Jarrett  CNN  October 8, 2021 2:00am-2:59am PDT

2:00 am
how do things look on your end? -perfect! because we're building a better network every single day. good morning, everyone. it is friday, october 8th. it's 5:00 a.m. here in new york. thanks so much for getting an early start with us. i'm laura jarrett. >> i'm christine romans. a catastrophe averted. they vote ed to raise the nation's debt limit through i recall december and head off a disaster. the deal in shroud till the very end. mitch mcconnell throwing a lifeline while triggering a divide in his owen party. 11 republicans joined democrats to take up the bill and break up the filibuster leaving other
2:01 am
republicans critical of his strategy. >> you do? why? >> we had a plan. we can't let threat of changing the rules drive us every time. >> i think the democratic threats to destroy the filibuster caused him to give in. i think that was a mistake, serious mistake. >> were you surprised? >> yes. >> after the vote, senate majority leader chuck schumer laid blame on the republicans for leading the nation on the brink of default triggering visible frustration from one of his fellow democrats. >> leader mcconnell and senate republicans insisted they wanted a solution to the debt ceiling, but said democrats must raise it alone by going through a drawn-out convoluted and risky
2:02 am
reconciliation process. that was simply unacceptable to my caucus. and yesterday senate republicans finally realized that their obstruction was not going to work. >> the senator in the back of schumer there, that is senator joe manchin, of course, a key vote for democrats with his hands over his face, rubbing them. apparently not troubled by the gop obstructionism on the debt ceiling, but by the majority leader's lack of, quote, civility. >> i just think we need to find a pathway forward. we have to deweaponize. we can't be playing politics. none of us can on both sides, okay. both sides have been very guilty of this and the frustration was built up, and i'm sure chuck's frustration was, but that was not a way to take it out. we just disagree. i would have done it differently. >> cnn's daniela diaz has the latest from capitol hill. daniela, good morning to you. it was sort of a nail-biter right up until the very end there on this vote.
2:03 am
we are now going to be in basically the same spot by december. so where do democrats go from here? >> reporter: well, first the house has to pass this bill, laura, so they can avoid defaulting on the nation's debt. of course, we were barrelling towards that october 18th deadline. that is why all of this chaos happened in the past couple days on the senate side. because treasury secretary janet yellen was warning that if congress did not address the debt ceiling, the nation would default on its debt by october 18th. so now it is looking like that's not going to happen, but it's not a permanent solution. it's just a two-month delay on this. but i really think you guys laid it out perfectly. there is a divide between republicans and democrats in the senate how this was handled. both republicans and democrats mad at their own leaders for how they handled this. you played that clip from senator joe manchin. he is incredibly upset that senate majority lieder chuck schumer took to the senate floor to slam republicans on this for
2:04 am
refusing to do this in a bipartisan way which has been done since 2011. he did not think that this is how politics should be working right now. you know manchin has always been an advocate for bipartisanship. as a moderate democrat. on the other hand, republicans such as ted cruz, rand paul, lindsey graham who are incredibly upset that senate minority leader mitch mcconnell cut a deal with schumer in the first place. mcconnell had originally said that democrats would have to go at this alone, and they would have had to figure out how to raise or suspend the debt ceiling alone and republicans would not aid in this. but earlier this week he cut a deal with schumer to pass a bill so that they could suspend the debt ceiling until december, and that is what happened and why conservatives are angry. so lots of divides here that happened in the senate last night. lots of anger from rank and file members. but it's important to note that this has only bought democrats time until they have to deal with this permanently.
2:05 am
mcconnell has argued by doing this, now democrats have time to deal with raising the debt ceiling using a very complicated process, using budget reconciliation, which means they could include this in a budget bill, and pass it using a simple majority, and the important thing here is they would have to put a number on where they want to raise the debt ceiling to. and democrats would have to own that. that is why mcconnell did this. also, he was concerned that democrats would have to change filibuster rules so that raising the debt ceiling would happen using a simple majority, and he did not want that either. so it was really a crunch time here and that is why they did this. laura, christine? >> all right, daniela diaz, thank you so much for all your reporting as usual. >> so, the midnight deadline has come and gone for donald trump's most loyal aides dodging subpoenas from the january 6 select committee. a trump lawyer told them not to cooperate according to a "washington post". the former president said he will try to assert executive privilege to keep house investigators from gathering insurrection evidence. a tactic that led to this
2:06 am
warning from the chairman of the senate judiciary committee dick durbin. >> i would suggest modestly, follow the law instead of the ravings of had former president. he doesn't have the power to pardon you any more. probably i hope never will again. and be careful. follow the law even if the president is begging you to stay away because of the evidence that you might present. >> which get more this morning from cnn's jessica schneider. >> reporter: laura and christine, the former president and his legal team are starting to set up major roadblocks for the january 6th select committee that could eventually lead to lengthy litigation. the "washington post" is reporting that an attorney for the former president is instructing four former aides who have been subpoenaed by the committee not to comply. thursday night was the deadline and it's not clear how the committee will move forward, especially because they want four of those key members of the trump administration to come in for depositions next wieeek.
2:07 am
the four trump allies seemingly -- documents, former chief of staff mark meadows, former deputy chief of staff dan scavino, former strategist steve bannon and kash patel who was the former chief of staff to the then acting secretary of defense. now, we have also learned that trump's team has indicated he will exert executive privilege to prevent the committee from getting information from people who worked at the white house. despite this, the committee is still moving forward. lawmakers just issued two new rounds of subpoenas to more people who are involved in planning the stop the steal rally on january 6th. that was the precursor to the capitol attack. one of the subpoenas issued is to the stop the steal group leader ali alexandre. he actually previously claimed he worked closely with republican congressmen planning the rally and that he also communicated with the white house. so all of those major points of interest for the select committee, we'll see what they
2:08 am
get. guys? >> jessica, thank you for that. subverting justice in more ways than one. a new report from the senate judiciary committee reveals that trump tried nine times to get his justice department to undermine the 2020 election. and it wasn't just trump. white house chief of staff mark meadows also pressed the justice department lawyer to investigate bogus claims of election fraud. the report also describes this surreal three-hour meeting in the oval with trump floating a plan to install jeffrey clark, that's another justice department lawyer, one perceived as perhaps more loyal. he was supposed to be installed as the acting attorney general to somehow some way nullify joe biden's win. the former president was talked out of this move after being told it would lead to mass resignations at the d.o.j. all right. vaccinations are key to the economic recovery and to recovering all those jobs lost in the pandemic. the hope is that widespread vaccination rates and rising
2:09 am
wages will get people back to work, especially front line workers. president biden in illinois thursday saying mandates work. they cut the number of unvaccinated americans by a third from 95 million people to 67 million. >> i'm calling on more employers to act. my message is require your employees to get vaccinated. with vaccinations we're going to beat this pandemic finally. for without them we face endless months of chaos in our hospitals, damage to our economy, and anxiety in our schools, and empty restaurants, and much less commerce. >> a key report today on the job situation, economists predict half a million jobs were added back to the economy in the month and the jobless rate slipped to 5.1%. remember, august jobs growth was the slowest since january. 500,000 jobs in september would be more than double august report. perspective here, the economy is still down 5.3 million jobs since the pandemic began.
2:10 am
so we've got to start picking up the pace here. there is a lot of hope maybe these numbers will be strong today because kids are physically in schools again. so some parents might have been able to get back into the work force because they are not physically taking care of children all day long. but the child care component of this is still a real problem. >> you're going to be on phoenix open of it, right? all right. still ahead for you, the manhunt for brian laundrie continues as more information comes to light about his movements before he went missing. we have the late east coast on that case next. there is something i want to ask you. oh um... the new iphone 13pro is here, with the most advanced iphone camera ever. and i got it at t-mobile. whew, i thought you were going to talk about...

2:15 am
three weeks ago. authorities are still combing a wilderness reserve near the family's home on thursday. brian laundrie's father joined that search showing police the trails he and his son hiked in the past. cnn's randi kaye is in north port, florida, with more for us. >> reporter: good morning, christine and laura. we're getting some new information from the north port police department about brian laundrie and the days before he disappeared. we are now learning that authorities did not speak to brian laundrie before he disappeared, but they were surveilling brian laundrie. i'm told by the north port police department that they were doing what they could legally do because, remember, there was no crime at that time. gabby petito's remains had not been found. wore also learning more about the couple's cell phones. you may recall that brian laundrie, after returning to town just a few days later on september 4th, had bought a new cell phone at an at&t store here in north port, florida. well, now i've confirmed with
2:16 am
the north port police department that they do not have brian laundrie's original phone that he had on that trip out west, nor do they have gabby petito's phone that was on the trip out west. they were not in the van, in gabby petito's van, which brian laundrie drove back here from wyoming to florida. but we did speak with a former fbi agent and attorney, and he said that you don't actually need the physical phone to get some of the information off, that they can track the phone. they can check geographic location. you would also be able to see not only where gabby petito was, but where the phone was when some of these text messages were sent. we know there were a couple of what her family thinks were pretty bizarre text messages sent in late august that they don't believe she actually sent. so it would be interesting to see where the phone was at that time. he also said the text messages are stored just for a few days, but there's other information that would be stored on the cloud much longer, including internet searches that gabby petito may have done which could prove to be very valuable for investigators.
2:17 am
back to you. >> randi, thank you for that. how have they not found him yet? >> it's been such a mystery. >> it's amazing. well, getting shots in young arms could be just weeks away. opening up 28 million for protection in the fight against covid. we have the details for you ahead. i don't just play someoe brainy on tv - i'm an actual neuroscientist. and i love the science behind neuriva plus. unlike ordinary memory supplements, neuriva plus fuels six key indicators of brain performance. more brain performance? yes, please! neuriva. think bigger. ♪ i see trees of green ♪ ♪ red roses too ♪ ♪ i see them bloom ♪ ♪ for me and you ♪ ♪ and i think to myself ♪

2:22 am
the surgeon jengeneral says eve though the fda promises to move quickly, they're going to be right. >> one thing they're not going to do is cut corners in this process. they want people to know when they make their decision, and if that ends up being in support of a vaccine for kids, that people know that the vaccine is both safe and highly effective. i think we'll see vaccines for kids under 5 come not too long after that. >> an estimated 28 million children would be eligible for the shots in the u.s. if regulators give them the green light. cnn's elizabeth cohen has more on this. >> christine, laura, the news that pfizer has applied for emergency use authorization for children ages 5 to 11, well, it's game changing for parents of children that age. a panel of fda advisers, their external advisers to the fda, they are going to meet on october 26 to take a look at all of pfizer's data, and that gives us a hint as to the time line when pfizer might get in the ua.
2:23 am
when we looked at last year when pfizer asked for ua, the cdc gave the green light five days after they met and said it was authorized. let's look at pfizer's data. pfizer has a clinical trial with 200 participants ages 5 to 11 those children were given the dose one-third the size given to adults, and pfizer says that the vaccine was safe and generated a robust antibody response. but the fda wants to know is the children who got the vaccine in the clinical trial, were they less likely to get sick with covid later on. in the clinical trial half the children got the vaccine, half the children got a shot of saline, a placebo that does nothing. so what the fda is going to want to see is when pfizer followed those children, were the vaccinated children less likely to get covid-19. now, we expect to see that kind of data before the october 26
2:24 am
meeting of the fda advisers. christine, laura? >> all right, elizabeth, thank you. yet another reason to be vaccinated. one hospital is requiring the shot before an organ transplant. the university of colorado hospital says people who are vaccinated will not be eligible for a new organ. hospital officials say unvaccinated transplant recipients have a much higher risk of death if they become infected with covid-19. they say it is standard practice to require organ recipients and donors to be vaccinated against infectious diseases. this morning in florida, school officials are feeling the pain after putting safety first. the state board of education voted to sanction eight school districts that required masks without letting their parents opt the children out. now, the schools say they defied the governor's executive order for the safety of the students and staff. cnn's nick valencia explains what these sanctions could mean. >> reporter: laura and christine, the science is pretty clear. wearing a mask helps reduce the chances of somebody contracting the coronavirus, but wearing
2:25 am
masks was still a topic of discussion that was debated at thirst's department of education meeting in florida. with the board there unanimously voted to sanction eight school districts in the state for being in non-compliance of the department of health's emergency ruling there in florida to prevent universal masking protocols as well as having students exposed to covid-19 stay home. the commissioner there in the state from the board of giuliani indication recommended that the pay of the school board members in those districts where there are mask mandates have their pay be docked. also he recommended that state money be withheld from those districts to offset any federal grants that were given to those districts that could be perceived as encouraging mask mandates. the meeting was tense at times that offered chances for superintendents to offer a rebuttal, but just listen to the commissioner here layout his recommendations for those sanctions. >> i recommend that the state board find that the district is out of compliance with the department of health emergency rule 6r 4 der 2115.
2:26 am
order compliance within 28 hours and withhold state phoenix suns in an amount equal to any federal project safe grant funds or successor grants awarded to the school district for its noncompliance with the department rule 64 dr 2115 in addition to state funds of each school board members annual salary. >> reporter: they did offer parents of students in those districts to comment. a majority of those that called in voiced their disapproval for mask mandates. a handful did call in to support their district. we should mention quickly six of the districts filed a joint lawsuit challenging the department of health's emergency ruling there in florida banning universal masking protocols. it was in july that the governor issued an executive order banning mask mandates in schools. laura, christine? >> all right, nick, thank you so much for that. all right. the treasury secretary calling out those d.c. antics that
2:27 am
threaten the full faith credit of the government. >> it's flirting with a self-inflicted crisis. >> a crisis averted, but what next? each day looks different than the last. but, whatever work becomes, the world works with servicenow.

i brought in ensure max protein, with thirty grams of protein. those who tried me felt more energy in just two weeks! ( sighs wearily ) here, i'll take that! ( excited yell ) woo-hoo! ensure max protein. with thirty grams of protein, one-gram of sugar, and nutrients to support immune health! ( abbot sonic ) a good friday morning. this is early start. i'm christine romans. >> i'm laura jarrett. it's 30 minutes past the hour here in new york. we know that covid vaccine mandates are working.
2:32 am
the evidence is there. get this. the number of unvaccinated people in this country has dropped from 95 million people to now just 67 million people. still a lot to go, but it's progress. president biden is making his case for why mandates are needed and pushing more companies to make their workers get the shot. cnn's jasmin wright joins us live. jasmin, good morning. you know, the president has been clear. he didn't want to use these mandates as the first line of defense. >> he called it tough medicine, right? >> at this point he seems out of options. >> reporter: yeah, look, the president yesterday, he turned his focus back to the pandemic after what had seemed like weeks of focus on congress and his economic agenda. and yesterday in the chicago toe -- chicagoland area, he said he was trying to do everything in his power to get more americans vaccinated. and trying to do it through the mandates. he was hesitant to do it at first, but here we are. now, his remarks really came after the white house released a
2:33 am
report, really touting the success of the mandates as they have led to more americans getting vaccinated. it comes after weeks of the same messaging from the white house really pushing back on any republican criticism that these things weren't needed or they weren't working. and now, remember, president biden really announced that september rule that federal workers, health care staff, and large employers would have to get vaccinated or test negative weekly to continue working. and he said yesterday that the labor department would actually issue that rule shortly. but bottom line, laura, is this administration recognizes not only are they going to be judged by the american people on basically if they're getting these economic agenda items passed, but also their managing of the pandemic. yesterday's remarks and this continued messaging that vaccine mandates work are really just multi-tasking from the white house, trying to make sure that
2:34 am
everything is good as they continue to work on their economic agenda. >> and you know i talked to business leaders this week who said the president's mandates have spurred them to move faster with their own mandate. it gives them cover. they're given a day off, maybe some financial incentives, but they're saying, you have to do this or you're going to lose your job. the president also says he's taking action against another kind of epidemic we're dealing with, unruly passengers on planes. what's the plan there, jasmin? >> reporter: the president said he asked his justice department to address that rise in violence that we see on planes. i think we've all as you can see on the screen right now, have seen kind of viral videos of people acting violent after really rebuking that mask mandate online. president biden said his d.o.j. will now take a look at it. he said it yesterday in the direction of united airlines c.e.o. really saying that they will get it done. the white house has kind of worked closely with the airline industry, trying to get them to really impose more mandates on
2:35 am
their personnel. we have seen the rise in vaccines going up in the airline industry. so as you said, this is another part of the president trying to provide cover to businesses to make it more favorable to them to impose really these mandates, trying to get more americans vaccinated. >> i'm just shaking my head looking at this video. the crazy people. >> thank you. hats off to all those flight attendants and the people who work for the airlines. the crisis management they're dealing with and the way they can de-escalate situations. i know the united c.e.o. said -- >> people were clapping as they took him off the plane. >> thank you, jasmin. the debt ceiling on hold now. treasury secretary janet yellen said we can't keep playing with the nation's full faith and credit this way. >> we do need to settle it longer term. you know, what we're really talking about here is can you count on the government to pay its bills. it's not about future spending
2:36 am
or taxes. we have incurred bills. can the government be counted on to pay those bills. and americans, whether it's people waiting for a social security check or military pay or bond holders who regard u.s. treasuries as the safest asset in the world, they need to never question that the united states will pay its bills. >> there is no question a default would be catastrophic. >> it would be enormously damaging to the economy, to financial markets. i've said and continue to think it would be utterly catastrophic. it should be unthinkable. >> you know, yellen also said it's becoming, quote, increasingly damaging to even set a debt ceiling. >> it's led to a series of
2:37 am
politically dangerous conflicts that have caused americans and global, global markets to question whether or not america is serious about paying its bills. it's flirting with a self-inflicted crisis. and it really involves the government giving their treasury secretary and their president conflicting sets of instructions. >> in the past 50 years, congress has acted 78 times to raise the debt limit, 49 times under republican presidents, 29 times under democrats. let's bring in cnn political analyst and editor of axios. disaster averted temporarily, though. why can't we just get rid of this thing? >> you know, democrats for a second there looked close, christine. that whole debt ceiling filibuster conversation that
2:38 am
almost happened really seemed like a decent solution to this. but then they blinked and i know we said mitch mcconnell blinked. guess what, everybody blinked. this is -- it makes sense maybe i theoretically to have to have votes on the debt ceiling if that were a way to restrain spending, if people in both parties were like, well, we're going to have to take a vote on it to raise it so we better not spend more than we have. but that shoip has totally sailed. president trump and the republicans tax cutback from 2017 cost about the same amount of money as we're looking at now in a modified reconciliation bill, the build back better that we're talking about now. so this is how we got here. you know, the only way to change it is either by bipartisan action. i think we can all agree that's not going to happen. or democrats at this point, because they're technically in charge, finding some maneuver. but instead, this compromise
2:39 am
that was reached is not -- it's not a great deal for the democrats. all it does is force them to all go on the record without any republican votes with a dollar amount attached to it, which is, guess what, exactly where republicans wanted democrats to be. now they're going to have to do it twice because they're going to have to do it again. >> it's for spending that already happened. there is a dollar amount attached to it because we have to pay our bills. >> the democrats argue the $2 trillion hole the trump tax cuts caused is different than their investment in the american work force. they would make that argument. >> but, margaret, i think this deal once again also exposed -- i mean, that's on the democratic side. i think it also exposed something of a rift among republicans. you saw some of them clearly angry at mitch mcconnell yesterday. people like ted cruz, people like lindsey graham. they're mad at mcconnell for making a deal with the democrats. they wanted him to sort of stay transient on that. the former president and his allies are of course, attack the
2:40 am
decision. they're happy to come after mcconnell any time. he did get it done. i wonder in your view does this show mcconnell has some juice with his caucus or does it suggest he's actually losing his grip on power? >> i think mitch mcconnell is still the chief strategist, the actual chief strategist of the republican party. you're right. ted cruz, lindsey graham came out criticizing that decision. s there are a lot of other republicans saying they're angry about it. i don't understand why, other than the messaging proposition. when you look at the impact of it, it gives republicans pretty much everything they wanted. those republicans who you saw cast the procedural vote to allow that vloet tote happen, l who they are. moderates or retiring. the incentive message to the base. by the way, in the actual vote 50 to 48, guess how many republicans were on the record raising the debt limit? >> zero. >> zero. >> margaret, in fighting the
2:41 am
word of the year on capitol hill. i think we can put it on the books. it's october. on the democrat side you have joe manchin and bernie sanders. if they were in the same room to work out the differences on the 3 1/2 trillion dollar bill, it would be like homicide. how do they put their differences aside to get something passed? >> that's fairly epic. the truth is at this moment they don't. that's why we're in a position where congress is treading water and the democrats have to come back in december. look, they represent really different states. what their states have in common is that their states have a lot of precedence, their states have pretty clear ideologies. the problem is those ideologies are really different, really, really different places. and i think when you see the video as you've been showing this morning of joe manchin with his face in his hands when chuck schumer is talking, it gives you a glimpse, a sense of his posture. we also saw bernie sanders --
2:42 am
hadwe had the story earlier this week that did this controversial maneuver inside the party for leaders to support kyrsten sinema on this one issue. it is uncool for people to turn on cameras and follow people in the bathroom. sanders team saying, we'll sign on as long as you add in there that we really wish she would do x, y, z on drug reform. these are entrenched positions and they're real. it will be something democrats have to work through in the weeks to come. >> nice to see you this friday morning. >> thank you. >> programming note, the cnn original series diana introduces viewers to the person behind the princess. it reveals a life more complicated and fascinating than the world knew. it's this sunday, premiers at 9:00 p.m.
