tv New Day Weekend With Christi Paul and Boris Sanchez CNN February 5, 2022 3:00am-4:00am PST
welcome to your "new day." i'm krp. >> good morning. i'm boris sanchez. he strikes back saying the former president is wrong and could have overturned the last election. we learn new details about who trump was speaking to before the attack. there's promising news in the fight against the coronavirus. there's hope across the country.
democratic party chair demanding an investigation after some senior citizens say they were duped into changing their party affiliation. and aiming for gold, the first medals are handed out at the winter games. we're going to take you live. "new day" starts right now. take a nice deep breath as you get into your saturday morning. i hope you are still in your pjs. we clearly are not. good morning, boris. >> not in the pjs you see up here. the suit and tie stays on. >> that's a very good point. nobody knows what's going on. let's talk about what's happening with former vice president mike pence. he's calling out his former boss by name saying, quote, president trump is wrong in claiming he
could overturn the 2020 election, meaning the vice president could do so. >> right. price has previously defended his actions on january 6th, though, trump has ramped up his push for the big lie. yesterday's remarks are pns's most forceful pushback yet. cnn's paula reid has the story. >> reporter: on friday former vice president mike pence rebuked former president trump yet saying trump was wrong. his remarks come 13 months after the insurrection, which he once again called a dark day in the history of the u.s. capitol and then called out trump's big lie. let's take a listen to what he told a crowd in florida this weekend. >> earlier this week we heard trump say i had the right to
overturn the election. he's wrong. i had no right. the right belongs to the american people and the american people alone and, frankly, there's no idea more un-american that one american could choose the president. under the constitution i had no right to change the election and kamala harris will have no right to overturn the election when we beat them in 2024. look, i understand the disappointment many feel about the last election. i was on the ballot. but whatever the future holds, i know we did our duty that day. >> if we lose faith in the constitution, we won't just lose elections. we'll lose our country. >> pence's remarks take on new significance as we learn about the pressure he felt on january 6th from trump and his allies
and the investigation into the attack. two of pence's top advisers have recent le testified before the committee, but it's not clear if pence will also cooperate with lawmakers, and the split in the gop evident this week when at the rnc winter meeting in salt lake city, they voted to formally scensure adam kinzinge and liz cheney. adam kinzinger responded. the gop clearly at odds with itself. paula reid, cnn, washington. >> thanks, paula. we should note the house select committee investigating the insurrection now has records that provide new details about a phone call that former president trump made to republican congressman jim jordan. >> the committee is drilling down on many ways donald trump and his allies including those in congress tried to overturn
the results. here's cnn's ryan nobles. >> reporter: boris and christi, this is new information. we still don't know how many times we talked to him, but we now know for sure there was at least one phone call that was initiated by president trump on the morning of january 6th that was takeen in the residence of the white house and lasted for ten minutes. now, basically every time jim jordan's been asked about his communications with donald trump, he's given a different answer. he said he talked with him maybe during the morning, during the attack, after the attack. then he told the house rules committee he only talked to him once and that was after the attack. the chairman of the rules committee jim mcgovern saw our report, saw what jim jordan said in response to our report, and said that directly contradicted his testimony to the committee last october.
when we asked jim jordan about the new report on friday, he had yet another answer to when he spoke -- about when he spoke to the former president. this is what he told us on friday. >> as i said, i had a number of calls with -- i talked to the president a couple of times a day, but i don't remember the times. i don't remember. >> you don't remember if it was the morning? if there was one in the morning before -- >> i don't recall, but i know i talked to him after we left off the floor, but i don't recall. >> that was jordan talking to our annie grier. that was the first time he talked to anyone as he was leaving the house floor on january 6th. this some of great interest to the committee. they want to know what jordan was talking to trump about in part because he was one of the leaders to on ss to object to election results. the committee believes tt
played a big role in leading to the violence and chaos on january 6th. they've asked jim jordan to appear before their committee voluntarily. so far he's turned down the request. they're struggling with whether they have the ability to submit subpoenas to make them appear before members of congress. boris and christi? >> thank you very much. let's talk with political commentator errol louis. errol, always appreciate you getting up bright and early for us. thanks for joining us. let's start with mike pence. the video we watched a minute ago, a very different mike pence than we've seen even just a few mont ago. he seemed more robust in his rebuttal of donald trump who later responded to him saying that the former president was wrong and calling overturning the results un-american. what do you make of this version
of mike pence, someone who clearly has aspirations for 2024? >> well, good morning, boris. it's a sign of how farthings have gone that simply standing up and saying the plain truth generates a headline, becomes news, is somewhat out of step with where the rest of the party is going because you've got this thing going on on the other side of the country in salt lake city where they passed a resolution saying the violent attack on the capitol was, quote, political discourse. so what we've got is mike pence finally saying that the people who were violently evading the capitol, chanting slogans, trying to find him, setting up a scaffold saying, "hang mike pence" were in the wrong. it's a little bit left. there's some thing that even mike pence is not going to swallow, and that tells you, i think, how far and how outrageous the effort to tell
lies about donald trump has become. >> errol, let's talk about that event in salt lake city, the rnc voting to censure liz cheney and adam kinzinger. the pressure is growing on minority leader kevin mccarthy to take even further steps against them. do you think he's going to be able to hold off on the right wing of his party, especially if he wants to be speaker? >> well, no, of course, not. the far right wing is in full control of the party, and that's what that vote represents, frankly, boris. there's nothing else they can do with adam kinzinger. he's decided not to rerun, so he's going to step off the stage. they're going to try to defeat liz cheney. that will be up to the votering of wyoming. it's a very small state. because of her well-known name,
she might hang on. make no mistake. it's not the elected responsible leadership or quote, unquote the responsible leader that is an angry base, that wants to believe against all evidence that somehow donald trump won the 20 election, and that's who's driving the ship at this point. >> errol, we just heard cnn's new reporting from ryan nobles on capitol hill, the call between jim jordan and president trump on january 6th. it lasted about ten minutes. the j-6 committee deciding on it. it's acknowledged it's a complicated issue. do you think jim jordan and others could be subpoenaed? >> they might be. the reality, boris, you're not going to gem the get the truth of jim jordan.
[ no audio ] >> and nancy pelosi in retrospect was very wise to keep him off of the committee. they had suspicions back then he was not going to be dealing in good faith and likely would have been conveying informing to all kinds of people who should not have received it. the subpoena question is a minor technical point compared to the effort to find the truth. if you're looking for the truth, jim jordan is not your man. >> we've got to leave the conversation there, but, errol, we always enjoy your perspective. thank you. >> thank you. so, you know, two years ago when the pandemic started, i don't know that any of us thought we would be where we are right now, this milestone of 900,000 americans who died from the virus since the start. president biden marked the occasion yesterday. he called each soul lost to covid-19 irreplaceable.
families certainly would agree with that. he urged more people to get boosted or vaccinated. unvaccinated are 97% more likely to die from the covid than those who received the shots. yesterday moderna offered two doses. meanwhile president biden celebrating good news on the economic front. >> that's right. the jobs report beat expectations, adding nearly half a million jobs, and it comes at a welcome time for this white house, the white house struggling to battle inflation, supply chain issues, and a sinking popularity rating left. 's take you to the white house and cnn's jasmine wright. she's actually in delaware traveling with the president. jasmine, after weeks of dismal economic news t white house was r ready for this when?
>> reporter: that's right. the president is having a good week for a change here, boris and christi. the white house is taking a victory lap. we saw the president out touting the surprisingly good jobs report where the u.s. add fourth degree 67,000 reports and pro provided job support two months previous. take a listen to the president taking that victory lap. >> i know it hasn't been easy. i know january was a hard month for many americans and know that after almost two years, the physical and emotional weight of the pandemic has been incredibly difficult for people to bare. here's the good news. we have the tools to save lives and keep businesses open, keep schools open, keep workers on the job, and sustain this historic economic comeback. >> reporter: so there we heard
from the president that he's trying to show his administration is in place once again at least domestically to turn the corner after a few bumpy months where we saw a record number of covid cases because of the omicron variant. so they are really ready to do that. now internationally, the white house really touted their success, what they called successful mission after they did a successful raid that killed the top isis leader in syria. the white house took a victory lap on that. but -- there's always a but, right. they're not out of the woods yet. we know there's still tension with russia as they do the troop buildup on the ukrainian border and back domestically the president has to deal with that record number of inflation and, of course, those poll numbers that are currently under water. so the president is not out of the woods yet, but, yes, they had a good week, and they are certainly celebrated, boris, christi? >> jasmine wright, we appreciate it so much as always.
thank you. so let's talk about the international arena. russia denies u.s. accusations that it's planning a false flag operation in ukraine while vladimir putin and xi are out there on the world stage. plus the jury handing down a guilty verdict, with after 'nati stealing from stormy daniels. we'll break down the details after a quick break. stay with us. ♪ at zales. the diamond store is now a good time for a flare-up? enough, crohn's! for adults with moderate to severe crohn's or ulcerative colitis, stelara® can provide relief, and is the first approved medication to reduce inflammation on and below the surface of the intestine in uc. you, getting on that flight? back off, uc! stelara® may increase your risk of infections,

robertson live from moscow. let's start with you. what is russia saying about the accusation of a false operation in the works. th . >> he's saying they point to that. there have been these reports of a full flag operation. this has more detail, sounds more graphic. we heard from the british government that russia plans to install a puppet government after he invades the country and takes control of it. it's becoming obvious to everyone. essentially that it's untrue. also, you know, on rushsia's tv as well when asked to give a
conference about the false flag operation as they often decline to do because they don't want to reveal sources and methods, he and the issues have been trolled on russian state media to re-emphasize from the kremlins' point of view, there's no substance in it. so the kremlin quite literally trying to use this against the united states. >> i want to pull you into the conversation. there's been clearly a break between the u.s. and ukraine in the past few weeks when it comes to how to interpret the intelligence. have you seen a narrowing of the gap, particularly in response to the false pretense of war? >> on that question of the false flag operation, you know, the ukrainian foreign minister has been speaking to that, christi, saying the u.s. had warned us about this, the information is coming out, but they have yet to give us any details. they're going to be looking out for that. you're right.
in terms of the assessment of how graiv and imminent the russian threat is. ukraine is preparing. we spent the day in chernobyl t site of the 1986 catastrophic nuclear disaster, watching the space to be used for a potential invasion. but we took the opportunity to speak to the defense minister, christi, put the operation of the false flag operation to him. he wouldn't speak specifically to that late piece of news, he did speak over the last course of weeks. have a listen. >> we have the same facts but a different perception or different estimate. >> the difference is on the question of intention. you don't believe they intend to invade. >> i hope that in kremlin, they didn't make their decisions
still. >> >> now what they explained is they weren't in position yet and that was going to take some time. >> i want to show you the meeting between vladimir putin and beijing. they're both aggressively pursuing efforts to reclaim territories that are independent that they claim are theirs in ukraine and taiwan. i wonder what you see and the message they're trying to send to the world. >> yeah, definitely this was a great platform at this moment for president putin but for president xi as well. both have common enmity to the united states. both have reason to join together and send a message to
the united states. in this case, president xi backing what president putin has been saying, that it's nato that's in fault, expanding too far eastward, that it's the united states destabilizing the fringes of europe at the moment, so president xi backing that, but president putin essentially backing president xi on president xi's views over taiwan as being part of china. so, you know, this was a good opportunity for both of them to share the platform, to send that message to the world. indeed, they kind of went beyond the visuals to issue a joint statement saying they are engaging in deeper strategic coordination and this is sort of in the future economic cooperations, high tech, green tech, russia needs support in the current economic tie, signing an oil deal, selling oil to china. and on the security sphere, it's
a message that says whatever you load us with with sanctions, together we can really potentially not only overcome it, but we can work our ways around it. >> melissa, i think a lot of people are going to be looking ahead at this coming week when frens president macron is going to be visiting russia d ukraine. i wonder what the optics will be for the international community after this visit. >> ukrainian officials are clear that it can work. if russia is correct, then, of course, there is room for dipl diplomacy. emanuel macron has been looking for a closer relationship with putin for euros. this is an opportunity to make it work where ukrainians are also hoping continued support,
literature, financial is helping keep russia in check, and that's what they want to continue seeing, christi and boris. >> we appreciate you reporting, melissa bell and nic robertson, thank you both. >> thank you. the ex-police officer who shot and killed 17-year-old laquan mcdonald got an early release from prison after serve three years behind bars, less than half his sentence. there are calls for the doj to step in. we're breaking down the cacase when we come back. instead, start small. with nicorette. which can lead to something big. start stopping with nicorette. plaque psoriasis, the burning, itching. the pain. emerge tremfyant®. with tremfya®, adults with moderate to severe aque psoriasis... ...can uncover clearer sn and improve symptoms at 16 weeks. serious lergic reactions may occur.
tremfya® may increase your risk of infections and loweyour ability to fight them. tell your doctor if you have an infection or symptoms or if you had a vaccine or plan to. emerge tremfyant® with tremfya®... ask you doctor about tremfya® today. kim is now demonstrating her congestion. save it slimeball. i've upgraded to mucinex. we still have 12 hours to australia. mucinex lasts 12 hours, so i'm good. now move! kim, no! mucinex lasts 3x longer for 12 hours.
a massive winter storm. many emergency officials are still working to restore power lines damaged by ice accumulations, winds, and fallen trees. among the states seeing the most customer outages are new york, ohio, and tennessee, as well, which accounts for nearly half of the outages nationwide. in virginia. mask mandates in southern school districts can replace for now after a judge granted a temporary restraining order against governor glenn youngkin's optional masking in several schools. the temporary block is in effect until the final ruling on the case, but the state has already said it intends to appeal that judge's decision. meantime the waffle house shooter who killed four people in antioch, tennessee, has been found guilty on all charges including premeditated fi
first-degree murder. he opened fire with an assault-type rifle back in 2018. you might recall when the shooting ended when one customer wrestled it away from him. he was taken into custody when a woman spotted him in the woots after a manhunt. sentencing is expected for later this morning. >> and after several days of deliberations, the jury found michael avenatti guilty of wire fraud and aggravated identity theft for stealing nearly $300,000 from his former client adult film actress stormy daniels. they say he instructed her literary agent to send installments to an account controlled by him, but she had no knowledge of it. here's what avenatti had to say about the verdict. >> i am very disappointed in the jury's verdict. i look forward to a full
adjudication of all of the issues on appeal. thank you. >> cnn analyst and legal criminal attorney joey jackson. hi, joey. i want to ask you first and foremost because i was hearing somebody say yesterday and reminding us, this is a man who got 30 months a while ago for extorting nike. does that conviction add any weight to the potential sentence in this case? >> yeah, it really will. it's good to be with you, christi. good morning to you. what happens is now we move to the issue of sentencing. as we noted he was facing two counts one with respect to identity theft, another with regard to fraud. looking at the case broadly, he was cross-examining stormy daniels as it relates to the paranormal and her beliefs to that and with regard to whether
she speaks to dead people or not. at the end of the day, you can do all that, it's very entertaining, but at the end of the day, were you diverting funds away from the literary agent, et cetera. so i think ultimately it seemed to be -- i did not sit on the jury and i was not in the courtroom, but what we've learned the jury got it right. now the judge has to consider a number of things and will with regard to the prior background of the defendant and instant matter that he's being sentenced on. i think as it relates to the prior conviction, that 30-month sentence in addition to all the other things he's facing, remember he has a california case that he initially had a couple of years ago when he declared a mistrial. so all of that will relate and stack up to, i think, a sentence that will not only be in consideration of the law, but with regard to who he is as an
individual. that's what sentencing is all about. >> real quickly t jury had sent a note saying there was one juror who refused to deliberation. he said, please help us move forward. not going on the evidence, he does not understand the job of the jury two. hours later they came back with a guilty. do you expect avenatti to use that in some way to try to solidify an appeal? >> i think so. the judge simply said all the jurors deliberate in good faith of the evidence. let's turn to chicago here, the former police officer accused of killing 17-year-old laquan mcdonald released early from prison. we're talking about jason van dyke. he was convicted in 2018 of second-degree murder along with 16 accounts of aggravated battery with a firearm. he was released on thursday. he served just a little more than three years of a nearly seven year sentence.
the early release set off protests in chicago. you see there what was going on. it was widely reviewed as a setback between the city's efforts in relation to the police department and black community. this is said to be tied to his good behavior in prison. this does fall within the legal boundaries of his sentence, but do you agree with it? >> i do not, and it does fall within the legal boundariesings, not making it right. if you want to get technical about it, the judge would have sentenced him to aggravated battery. then he would have had to serve more time. of course, now, the issue is now that it falls within that sentence, instead of three and a half years, he was given 81 months, i think they can look at it all with respect to his
freedom and using intentional force intentionally. there's a place for them to do it. i think they will and should do it. >> so i wanted to ask you about that because we've got the ncaa p, bobby rush there all calling for those federal charges. even cook county state's attorney kim foxx said on the sentence of van dyke served, did not fit the 16 shots to the body that killed the teenage eric and, quote, if there's an ability to do something about it on a federal level, by all means something should be done. talk about the plazability and logistics. what kind of time frame are we talking about, joey? >> i think they should do it immediately. the federal government has been investigating it quietly for years. it ice about investigating the case, putting it before a grand jury, securing an indictment based upon the use of excessive force. everybody has a right to be free
of unnecessary force, particularly force that is excess irv and results in death. when it's done in this ways, there's a place to investigate it, bring it before the jury and make an assessment whether he violated his civil rights. for the system to work, there needs to be trust and faith and apply to everyone equally, and you can't have these disparities in sentencing. it's looked at as some get away with things. others don't. people of color say, what is this, when you're sentencing for far less things that you do in a far greater way, and so i think the federal government should look at it, and in doing so, they would engender a lot of trust within the communities. >> joey jackson, we always appreciate your expertise. thanks for being with us. >> appreciate you more. thanks, christi. >> thanks, joey. we'll l be right back. it's clinicallyly shown to help manage blood sugar levels and contains high quality protein
