tv   New Day With John Berman and Brianna Keilar  CNN  August 12, 2022 2:59am-4:00am PDT

2:59 am
♪ good morning to viewers here in the u.s. and around the world it's friday august 12th. i'm brianna keilar alongside john berman. after a day of extraordinary developments, former president trump says overnight he will not oppose the release of documents related to the fbi's search of his mar-a-lago home. in a late night post trump says he is, quote, encouraging the me immediate release of those documents. his attorney says it doesn't appear they will object to the release. trump's legal team has until 3:00 p.m. today to formally respond in court. attorney general merrick garland says he personally approved that decision to seek the mar-a-lago
3:00 am
search warrant. >> just because trump says he wants the documents released, doesn't necessarily mean that is what his lawyers will tell a judge. trump had possession of these documents since monday. and has chosen not to release them. so this could very well develop throughout the day. also another potentially mammoth bit of reporting overnight from "the washington post." i'll read from it right now. their lead is classified documents relating to nuclear weapons were among the items fbi agents sought on monday according to people familiar with the investigation. now, this would put the possible concern over these documents at an entirely different level. so let's work through all this new information this morning. cnn kaitlyn poe lants in washington. >> reporter: good morning. this late night announcement from donald trump saying he's encouraging the immediate release of these documents i just checked the court files.
3:01 am
and there is no filing yet from either the justice department or anyone else related to trump saying what the final position of his attorneys will be in court. of course, this is a court process now. trump could release these on his own. he could post them on social media if he wanted to, but right now we are waiting to see what is going to happen in court before 3:00. now, that story in the washington post, it really does add to what we know about the urgency of this search, saying that there was a search to locate classified documents related to nuclear weapons. but that even comes upon information that we at cnn were able to confirm as well yesterday that when those 15 boxes had been removed earlier this year by the national archives inside of them, there was special access program material, s.a.p. material. that is highly secretive and controls who can access it. that really, too, can also include people who have access
3:02 am
to nuclear information. and so, this urgency, filling out this timeline of what was being sought there, we are seeing quite a lot of need, if indeed, there were nuclear related documents in these boxes for the justice department to go in this week. of course, we're waiting to see exactly what the court filings will reveal, if they will get into that level of specificity. >> stick around for us. i want to bring in cnn counterterrorism analyst and former fbi intelligence adviser phil mudd, errol louis. phil, classified documents relating to nuclear weapons. put this into context for us. >> boy, let me give you a couple perspectives. i neshlly down played this because when you think of classified documents, if you think about a car on a car lot from a 15-year-old clunker with
3:03 am
200,000 miles to new maserati, this is at the new maserati end of the car lot. you can look at documents that might have been explainable in mar-a-lago. for example, maybe the president kept transcripts of his conversations with presidents in europe. documents how he decided to withdraw from the climate treaty. i would have said, you know, i wouldn't worry about that too much. nuclear stuff, let me give you a clear picture of how significant that. i had a top secret code word clearance for 25 years, deputy director of national security at the fbi, i do not believe based on my understanding of these documents that i would have had the clearance to view them. i don't know what else to say. this is serious stuff that very few people get access to, brianna. >> serious stuff that people don't get access to. it changes your perception of this entire thing. >> yes. >> dave, to you, how would it
3:04 am
affect the urgency with which the department of justice would act. >> a lot. here is why, there's no way an institutionalist like merrick garland or christopher wray appointed by donald trump or a federal magistrate would have walked into this buzz saw, this political hornet's nest over something like trinkets. comes to a vital issue of national security, something so urgent as nuclear information, now you see why. plus, it does put trump in a whole new area of legal jeopardy. because it's not so easy to declassify nuclear information. there's a federal law that requires him to go to the department of energy. this whole defense as president he can just unilaterally declassify it, doesn't hold water when it comes to nuclear secrets. >> what does this do to all of the republicans who have been backing trump up, saying, oh, this is just them maybe getting papers in order and this is the
3:05 am
weaponization of the justice department and the fbi? >> if they adhere to the facts, it will back them up a little bit. they will pause i think and think about it. there's no assurance they will do that. we have seen other instances where in defense of donald trump people will say the most outlandish things that are clearly false. but in this case there really is a big difference between sentimental papers or even something to write a book based on and so forth and things that i think everyone understands are clearly dangerous, clearly not supposed to be trifled with. we see the way donald trump uses courts and laws and procedures are for his own personal, political benefit. it will be one of those make or break moments once again for republican relationship to decide if they want to ride down that path with him. >> phil, back to you with one more question on this subject. if there were, again, i'm going to read "the washington post" reporting here because it's very specific, classified documents
3:06 am
relating to nuclear weapons, those were among the items the fbi agents sought, if those were at mar-a-lago, why would the department of justice, the fbi, the counterintelligence division of the fbi apparently because that's who signed off on it, why wouldn't they want them at mar-a-lago? >> well, if you look at the security at place like the department of justice, look at the security place like the department of energy, compared to a beach house, are you kidding me? one of the reasons the department of justice would have asked from the videos of mar-a-lago, ask basic questions you would never have to ask if these documents were properly secured. for example, who brought stuff in? do we have the stuff that they brought in? or did it disappear on another day? more significantly, who went in that room? i'm going to guarantee you, national security stuff related to nuclear weapons in there, that people who went in that room not all of them had the appropriate clearance. so you don't know what's in
3:07 am
there. you don't know who is accessing it. you don't know if those people know how to secure these kind of secrets. i don't know what to say, john. you're keeping nuclear stuff at a beach house that i couldn't review at the cia. enough said. >> and mar-a-lago has been a target for spies. we know that. right? >> we have actually. there was a woman who was arrested who i believe was a chinese national found with all kinds of recording devices getting into the property a few years ago. it was a court case we had to go down and cover because it was such big news that someone was able to get so close. and that there also was this target there, right? where people clearly were trying to get into mar-a-lago, who may have other interests than just visiting the beach. >> so dave, i want to move on to the other bit of new information -- one thing i want to say as we're closing up the nuclear secrets notion here, first of all, the reporting is
3:08 am
they sought nuclear documents. we don't know why they thought there were nuclear documents there. that's one bit of information we obviously would still need to find out. we also don't know if they took classified documents about nuclear documents that remains to be seen from mar-a-lago. let me put that out there. now donald trump saying that he wants this information released now, where does that leave us this morning? he's saying it, but couldn't he have released on monday if he wanted to be this trance participant. >> he doesn't want us to know that he could have done this on his own already. also, there's little daylight here. he's saying, yeah, i want it released. but his lawyers may say something different and throws up his hands. hey, i can't help it. my lawyers are doing this on a legal basis. but he is in a box. kudos to merrick garland. he knows how to play this game better than a lot of us thought he did. trump is in a tough position because if the stuff comes out, he gets hurt by it. if he tries to obstruct and block it, then it undermines everything he and his supporters have been saying for the last few days and really looks bad.
3:09 am
so, either way it's merrick garland is going to win. so heads he wins. tails trump loses. >> yeah. that's the box he's painted himself into. calling for transparency, people supporting him by saying there must be transparency. well, the transparency is now the ball in donald trump's court. >> a lot of this will be fact dependent. i'm glad you raised that. the fact that they went there looking for things doesn't mean they found them. or that they were ever there. and so, you know, explaining this extraordinary action, the extraordinary action was stepping on to the property with a warrant and searching the former president's home. what we find and whether or not it's going to sort of be clear what it is really remains to be seen. the list itself will be politically speaking quite damning if it's a list of here are the things we thought he might have taken. and then, you know, if they find it was taken, that will be another issue. >> talk about what these documents actually are and are not that may be released as soon
3:10 am
as i guess what, 3 p.m. >> yeah, there will be an inventory that would be released. now, watch for this. i think when the documents are released, if they are, you'll see some redactions. there has to be. and those redactions will be capitalized upon by donald trump. he will look at everything that's blocked out and say, see, here it is. here is where it would have said trump is innocent. here is where it would have said the fbi planted evidence. he will try to capitalize on that. it won't work for most people but for his base they're going to believe anything he says. >> but this isn't the affidavit. they're not going to release the affidavit that explains why they wanted the search warrant, what they'll release, my understanding is, would be if they release it, would be a search warrant which might indicate what laws they had probable cause to believe were broken? >> and that's the key here. it will be one of the attachments. where hopefully they will mention the laws that may have been broken. that's how you know if this is a case of the presidential records act or if it's something much more sinister, like espionage. >> phil, is it possible it's not
3:11 am
a bomb shell at all, these documents that may be released? >> i'm sure it is. but i think there's one missing point here that we have to bring to the table. we know that there is an informant who talked to the fbi about what was there. not only about presumably what the documents were, but had enough knowledge about the inner workings of mar-a-lago about where this stuff was. the fbi obviously didn't search the entirety of mar-a-lago. so let's take you inside the room with merrick garland and the fbi director christopher wray. they've got to have some certitude that those documents relate to something serious beyond a confidential level thing to me confidential documents that don't mean nothing. secret documents, that don't mean nothing. that informant or others have to be telling the department of justice it's really worth you going in there. so if it's not nuclear stuff, it better be something else. otherwise i think even if there were stuff improperly stored, lower level classification, you're not going to raid that place. >> very interesting point. phil, everyone, thank you so much for the discussion this morning. >> thanks. now, another major story
3:12 am
yesterday that might help put all of this in context or reframe how everyone is looking at this. a man armed with an ar-15 style rifle and a nail gun was killed in a standoff with police after he tried to enter the fbi field office in cincinnati. the man has been identified as ricky schiffer, that's according to three federal law enforcement sources. now, an account bearing his name on the trump social media platform truth social, includes violent rhetoric, references to his attempt to storm an fbi office, and encourages others to prepare for a revolutionary-type war. our brynn gingras has been following this story and all these developments. what have you learned? >> a lot, john. there's a lot in that social account. it details a person who clearly believes the election was stolen in 2020. who admits to being in d.c. on january 6th. and, as you said, wanted to wage a war with the fbi.
3:13 am
and also as you said, the account bears his name. the account picture matches a government id of the man killed after that hours long standoff that ended in his death. cnn has not confirmed the account belongs to the suspect, but there's this. a post minutes after sources tell us schiffer walked into the cincinnati fbi field office with an assault rifle and a nail gun and says this, well, i thought i had a way through bullet proof glass and i didn't. if you don't hear from me, it is true, i tried attacking the fbi and it will mean either i was taken off the internet, the fbi got me, or they sent the regular cops. post ending possibly abruptly as the report ensued because that's around the time it was posted. this user fixates on pushing violence against the fbi including one on monday after news broke about the search of mar-a-lago. this poster encourages people to go to florida writing this.
3:14 am
this is your call to arms for me. tyranny becomes the law. rebellion becomes duty. kill them, referencing fbi agents that get in their way. so this is just a disturbing look into the possible mind of schiffer, again, now dead. we don't know yet exactly why he tried to breach the fbi building, but what happened yesterday may, of course, guys be the first example of an act of violence against law enforcement, specifically the fbi as the agency warned this could happen in the current climate of all this rhetoric spreading. >> deeply concerning. i know you'll stay on this. thank you so much. we'll talk about this with two former members of the fbi, including former deputy director andrew mccabe right after this. also, details of how the secret service stalled an investigation of their actions related to january 6th. they were scrapped in a report to congress. we have new cnn reporting. and the house january 6th committee meeting with still more trump cabinet officials who

3:20 am
to everything else that has happened this week. your view. >> john, it's just such an incredibly potent example of the state of the threat in this country right now and how easily that threat of political violence can be accessed by donald trump and directed by him. and i think that's what we saw yesterday. assuming the investigation bears out that this individual's motive was, in fact, to attack the fbi, he made statements immediately following the search warrant at mar-a-lago on monday. so, this is what counterterrorism experts and observers and folks like myself have been talking about for months. donald trump has an amazing amount of influence over people who harbor these sorts of beliefs when he baselessly floats out an allegation, as he
3:21 am
did on monday, about the fbi possibly planting evidence in his residence, which we all know there's been absolutely zero proof produced for that. he knows that that could have an -- that can have incredibly inspiring effect on people who harbor these extreme beliefs and compel them to move to take violent action. it is incredibly dangerous. >> phil, he is not the only one, right? all of this gets amplified. you hear people who support him, elected officials the kind of rhetoric that they're using. what are your concerns? what's your message to republicans who are, as they complain about the weaponization of the doj and the fbi are in a way weaponizing that rhetoric. >> my message is professional and intensely personal and the professional piece, let me focus on radicalization, whether you're dealing with isis or al qaeda, during the days of islamic terrorism, isis and al
3:22 am
qaeda, you needed radicalizers. if an individual wants to commit an act of violence, often there's a case of someone they respect who will validate that person's feeling. you're 18, you're 20, you're 25, you're 30 angry about america, i'm telling you as a respected figure you can use violence. we're seeing that from the fringe to a core movement among far right conservatives telling people that it may be appropriate to use violence for political purposes. so this is about radicalization that you would see in a lot of terror circumstances that i witnessed. let me close quickly on a personal note. this morning i woke up having received the most vicious piece of personal hate mail i have received in years. it appears from my reading of
3:23 am
this hate mail that it results from someone who was radicalized by what they saw us say, including me, in response to what happened in mar-a-lago and what that person is seeing their political leaders say. if you think this isn't significant in america, it's across our country. and it is comprehensive, brianna. when people tell someone to be radicalized, people will radicalize. >> this note threatened you, your life, phil? >> i get a lot of hate mail. this is borderline criminal referral. i will not refer it. but this individual told me i need to be smacked around and that i'm the scum of the earth. i will not get into the additional pieces of this. i get this kind of stuff pretty regularly, but this is more significant than what i have received in a while. again, first question was whether it goes to police. it won't because it doesn't have some specifics i look for, but man, this is emblematic of what we have in this country, john. >> andy, how much risk in this
3:24 am
environment do you feel that fbi personnel and other law enforcement personnel are this week? >> well, john, there's no question that the work environment for fbi people has been getting tougher and tougher. tougher over the last five or six years, right? so, you know, trump has been basically at war with the fbi since we opened a case on his campaign in july of 2016. that has a corrosive effect on the ability of fbi agents and professional support staff to develop the sort of trust that they need to get their job done. now we've gone one giant step further than that. you have people like this person from cincinnati yesterday online talking about actively targeting fbi agents as they conduct their work in field, as they're out in all of our communities talking to victims, talking to witnesses. you have thousands of fbi people
3:25 am
out across the country every single day doing this vital and important work. and now to know that there may be a core element of extremists really anywhere in the country targeting them is incredibly, incredibly dangerous. and could i just add to address brianna's question, my question for our political leadership of both sides is where are you? it's bad enough that their own rhetoric is pushing some of these extremists in that direction. they should be out actively trying to tamp this down. they should be making statements about responsibility, about true patriotism, no matter how they feel about whatever investigation they're fired up about. there's no -- absolutely no excuse for this sort of provocation to violence. they should all be out trying to tamp this down. >> andy mccabe, phil mudd, our thanks to both of you for the work that you do. >> thanks. we do have some new cnn
3:26 am
reporting concerning accusations that the secret service was impeding federal investigators, looking into the agency's actions surrounding the january 6th attack. and that those details were actually scrapped from a report to congress. cnn's whitney wild is live in washington with the latest on this. whitney, tell us what you've learned. >> reporter: well, the purpose of that congressional report is to alert lawmakers when the i.g. is running into significant challenges collecting information. this memo was obtained by the project on governmentover sight. it was shared with cnn and shows that there was a original language that would have had detailed descriptions from the department of homeland securities inspector general's office of the multiple ways they thought the secret service was stalling the watchdog's investigation. among the accusations, these investigators said the secret service wouldn't identify the reviewers of records. that made it hard to contact them and get the relevant information. investigators also said that the secret service wouldn't give records to the i.g. without an internal review. and when they did hand over
3:27 am
documents, they were heavily redacted. finally, the i.g. investigators said that the secret service wasn't totally up front with them about the totality of the text messages lost from the weeks leading up to the january 6th. so this is the issue we have been talking a lot about. the secret service said that they had this data migration a couple weeks after january 6th, which basically wiped text messages from several people's cell phones. the i.g. thought that was crucial information and they had been going back and forth for about a year to get those text messages. again, the i.g. saying secret service didn't tell us exactly what was going on. the point here is that the warnings were approved for release to congress in april but they never made it into this final report that was issued in june. so something happened between april when they felt like they were ready to go and june when this report was actually sent over to lawmakers. that's raising a lot of questions because about a month after that report came out, the i.g. had this dramatic about
3:28 am
face and took all of these complaints directly to the hill. the secret service is saying that they did and they are cooperating with these investigations. sources within the agency i have spoken with for several weeks now have really pushed back on the idea that they were stalling the i.g. from getting records saying they can't just release internal records without first getting reviews for executive privilege and national security issues, john and brianna. >> all new reporting from you and your team, whitney. this really does create an intriguing time line here. on top of all this, we're learning the january 6th committee met with former transportation secretary elaine chao and set to meet with trump's former national security adviser robert o'brien today. so what's going on there? >> well, chao is significant because she was obviously a member of the cabinet, left the post on january 7th and was among several cabinet members who explored the idea of invoking the 25th amendment. sources have also said that o brian was involved in high-level discussions about the 25th
3:29 am
amendment immediately following january 6th, but in a statement to cnn he says that's not true. he says he was not involved at any time in discussions about invoking the 25th amendment. but, certainly that is something that the committee will ask. he's expected to meet with them virtually today. >> we'll see what he tells the committee maybe if we learn. whitney wild, thank you very much for that. the cdc issuing brand new covid guidelines about testing and social distancing. what you need to know about sending your kids back to school. a grim statement from the family of actress of anne heche following your fiery car crash. we'll have an update on her condition ahead.

we are condemning any type of violence for any reason. it is something that should not be happening. i think people have the right, and we think, people have the right to peacefully protest. when it comes to violence of any kind, we will condemn it, including when it's towards law enforcement. so that's what we're going to continue to do is condemn that. the president has done that many times when we have seen violence just across the country. >> the house is voting on the inflation reduction act today. do you think that you have all democrats? >> well, first, let me just -- we're grateful and congratulate senator schumer and senator manchin for getting this really critical, important anti-inflation bill out of the senate. now it's in the speaker's hands. we know that she is very ept to get this through with her leadership. so we are confident. we have been involved in helping in any way that we can to make sure that it gets through. the thing i want to say about

this piece of legislation, it is a win. it is a huge win for the american people. if you think about, bro ianna, last 30 years, wealthy special interest groups has tried to stop negotiating medicare so that we can bring prices down, this bill is going to bring prices down for the american people as you look at trugs and pharmaceutical drugs for your seniors. if you look at what it's going to do for climate change, there's been special interest groups again for 30 years those climate deniers who have stopped, try to stop us for putting in significant investments like clean -- for clean energy future, for clean energy jobs. this is going to do that. and also, continue those aca premiums so we keep lowering costs for health care for americans. >> how does it bring it down right now, though? the americans need it right now. >> so for aca, those premiums, average about $800 a month
3:44 am

3:45 am
ten medication out there to start the process so they can start negotiating the lowering costs. but the point that i'm making is that this is an investment -- >> that's 2026, isn't it? for the first ten and then the additional ones phasing into 2029? >> the point i'm making here is they're going to see energy costs, utility bills, that will come down. >> okay. i guess i was trying to speak about the immediate impacts. but i do want to ask you -- >> those are the immediate impacts. when you think about -- >> i'm talking about here in the coming months. i think we have maybe different timeline reference points on that. >> but you're asking me immediate impact. i'm talking about the energy costs. that will be immediate. i'm talking about the aca, affordable care act, those premiums will continue. that's going to lower costs for 13 million americans. 13 million americans. that matters. >> continuing to keep those. >> right. but remember that was not going to happen without. >> that's right. it would have increased just to be clear.
3:46 am
>> yeah. that's a continuation. that's important to 13 million americans. >> no, certainly. they don't want rising cost the middle of all this. >> that totally matters. let's not forget, there's been gas prices we have seen come down everyday this summer. >> yeah. >> that has been the work of the american people as well. >> i do want to go back where i ask you, you are in touch with speaker pelosi. she is quite the whipper. that is her background. has she told you she has all democrats on board. >> we're not going to negotiate in public. we're not going to share our conversations of what's happening. >> do you have a sense of where the caucus -- that's not what i'm asking. i'm not asking about negotiations. do you have a sense of where the caucus is? >> that is part of negotiations, right? when she's talking to the caucus and trying to whip and get them together. look, we trust in the speaker. she is phenomenal. he knows her caucus better than anybody else. so we are encouraged. we're going to continue to be
3:47 am
helpful in any way. look, really the thing is this is the americans winning. we have to not forget, this is a fundamental game-changing piece of legislation that's going to have an impact, something that we have not seen in decades. and it's because of the president's experience. it's because of the president's -- how he saw this country, how best to move it forward. and testimonies as well. and that's what we're going to see today. >> so big vote. we'll be watching. we'll have the answer to that question soon enough. >> very soon. very soon. >> white house press secretary karine jean-pierre, thank you for being with us. >> thank you. there's alarming new research that shows the largest ice sheet in the world is melting faster than previously thought. the latest developments on the climate crisis next.
