tv   Early Start with Christine Romans and Dave Briggs  CNN  July 10, 2018 2:00am-2:59am PDT

2:00 am
court. "early start" continues right now. this is cnn breaking news. >> brett kavanaugh is the -- has the proven equipment to the equal justice under the law. >> brett kavanaugh is the president's pick for the supreme court. who is he? what is his legal background? can democrats stand in his way? the administration will miss the deadline to reunite all migrant families with kids under 5. now the judge says the government cannot extend how long it holds migrant children. and the crews racing to bring out the last trapped boys. four boys and the coach are still in. two successful mornings there. we are hopeful the last boys will come out this morning.
2:01 am
we have ivan watson standing outside that cave. i'm dave briggs. >> i'm christine romans. it is 5:00 a.m. in the east. while waiting for developments at the cave, let's talk about developments here and the political sphere. left and right preparing for battle now we know the nominee to replace anthony kennedy on the supreme court is 53-year-old brett kavanaugh. introduced by the president last night. the yale educated lawyer worked on the ken starr investigation of bill clinton. he worked in the george w. bush white house. sources close to the selection process say the president was encouraged by the conservatives who came to kavanaugh's defense. >> after the announcement, the nomination fight was under way as you expect. senate democratic leader chuck schumer issuing the statement within seconds.
2:02 am
president trump has put reproductive rights and health care protections for americans on the chopping block. >> my judicial philosophy is forward. a judge must be independent and interpret the law and not make the law. a judge must interpret the constitution as written. informed by history and tradition and precedent. >> vice president mike pence kicks off the white house campaign to pressure red state democrats to support kavanaugh. pence is supporting kavanaugh to take him to the office of mitch mcconnell this morning. >> sources of both parties say because of the lengthy paper trail of a judge, moving his nomination along quickly could be a challenge. for the latest, let's go to boris sanchez at the white house. >> reporter: christine and dave, no one more qualified for the position. that is how president trump
2:03 am
described brett kavanaugh. his choice to replace anthony kennedy following his retirement from the supreme court. two sources close to the decision making process showed that president trump showed favor to kavanaugh long before kennedy announced his retirement and after a conversation with the retired justice, president trump felt more strongly. the president talked about his criteria for choosing kavanaugh. >> what matters not a political view, but whether they can set aside the views to do what the law and the constitution require. i am pleased to say that i have found, without doubt, such a person. >> reporter: some democrats have come out in total opposition to the nomination. he could potentially win some favor among red-state democrats. previously kavanaugh made statements suggesting that he
2:04 am
would respect legal precedent and potentially uphold roe v. wade. dave and christine. >> boris at the white house. thank you. >> let's bring in michael moore from the cnn center in atlanta. and writer phil wegmann. phil, what do you make of the pick? what does this is a? >> this -- what does this say? >> this is a job well done if you are a conservative or republican. president trump referred to the list of two dozen justices and kept the promise from the campaign trail. in kavanaugh, we have someone interesting in that we heard him say it last night and we have seen it in the more than 300 cases he already decided. this is someone who will defer to history, tradition and precedent. i think more than anything, when it comes to these sticky social
2:05 am
issues which are contentious political fights at the court, he will be more likely to kick that to congress and force the legislature do their job. >> michael moore, let's talk about what you think is the main attraction for the president for the pick. that is his strong support for presidential power. senator ed marke yerks twey twe. it is not a coincidence he was elected. let's bring up the past kavanaugh statement on presidential power. having seen first hand how difficult that job is, i believe vital that the president focus on his never ending tasks with few distractions as possible. it is not to put the president above the law, but deter litigation until the president is out of office. you think this is going to bring a great deal of controversy for the president? >> this is a lot like the king sending out his favorite knight
2:06 am
into battle in the confirmation process. i think that is really where we are right now. think about kavanaugh's position. he is qualified academically. no question about that. he has taken the floating positions about presidential power. on the ken starr committee. he wrote the report talking about things that bill clinton should face while in office. he flips around and talking more about the president almost the king. he shouldn't be touched in office because he has so many things he has to do. i think trump set him out on the field of battle in the field of process. by all accounts, he is guaranteed to face controversy. it took three years for him to get confirmed through his appellate court hearings. you will see that. there is no way for kavanaugh to step back now and say look. i don't want to talk about those issues because they may come up before me. we hear that line all the time in the confirmation hearings.
2:07 am
the judges say i can't talk about them. i don't want to address something that may be before the court. he has written about it. we know what he thinks. he will have to answer the questions which will raise problems. >> will he answer the questions? we have become quite accustomed to the non answer. it is an art form at the hearings. phil, let's put up the senators. susan collins and lisa murkowski. collins offered a statement that looked favorable upon this pick. there are the democrats. there are ten democrats up for re-election from trump states. including those five we highlight. man manchin, heitkamp and jones and tester. what can they really do to hold up this pick and could it cost them crucial senate seats, phil? >> they need to do something more than last night. it was laughable on the supreme court protests where people were
2:08 am
again with signs with fill in the blank. ready to protest whoever the president nominated. they did it with gorsuch. it is now with kavanaugh. it is not just protesters who showed up late night. it is groups like the women's marches. they sent an e-mail blasting the nominee before he was named. we know as a matter of fact that mainstream democrats, chuck schumer, will oppose the nominee. we knew that before he was named. as far as the questions about whether or not the president should face investigations, i think with kavanaugh, you have someone who saw it from both perspecti perspectives. i think looking back to the experience in the starr investigation, he realized that this should not necessarily be a partisan thing and this hampers the president from fulfilling his executive duties. again, what is interesting here is those red state democrats think donnelly and heitkamp and
2:09 am
manchin. they'll not have the arguments. they need something much more to justify voting no come november. >> michael moore, this is why the spoils go to the winner of the election. how much distance can they do? >> you know, there is not a lot they can do. face it when you look at the numbers in the senate. we hear the shifting sands of the precedent. we have him talking about one thing over here and he is talk about executive power. he changes his opinion when it is another administration. i don't know that is necessarily an increase in the judicial intellect. it is shifting sands at a convenient time. that gives discomfort to susan collins and lisa murkowski over roe v. wade. you raise a good point about the non-answers that the nominees give when they go to confirmation hearings. they are trained on what to say.
2:10 am
they go through briefings on the practice runs with the hearings. the concern will be that we will see a shift in what he said about following precedent and issues like gay rights and abortion. women's right to choose. those things out there. contraception. that is a concern. i think he is a nominee who has made contradictory statements in the past and that will come up and be used in ways to say maybe you don't follow precedent. you have shifted around before. he will have to answer the questions in the hearings. >> you have mentioned collins and murkowski. that is all they need to hear. 51-49 edge. if they need mike pence, they can bring him in for tie breaker. here is what susan collins said. impressive credentials and experience. did hold up a little bit saying i will conduct a careful vetting of the pick. murkowski did not go as far.
2:11 am
simply saying i intend to review decisions and writings. she did not go as far as susan collins collins did. phil, is it sooner rather than later? you don't want this to go right before the midterms? >> as far as timing, that is interesting. on both sides, republicans are expecting this to help rally the base come november. same with democrats. the timing is still up in the air. earlier as you stated. kavanaugh has a long paper trail. we will see due diligence from senators on the right and left. they will do their job of advising and contenting. we will -- consenting. we will see. this is going to continue and e define the run-up to the midterm
2:12 am
elections. >> phil and michael. thank you. only eight hours after the pick. lots to mull over. >> indeed. thank you. the operation to rescue the four remaining boys and soccer coach from the cave in thailand has resumed this morning. officials are hoping the rescue efforts end today. let's go to northern thailand and bring in cnn's ivan watson. ivan, what is the latest? >> reporter: dave, the rescue operation resumed again at 10:00 a.m. local time. it has been under way for six hours. resumed earlier than originally telegraphed by the authorities here. they say the goal today is to rescue the remaining four boys and the 25-year-old coach who had been trapped inside that mountain behind me at a depth of 2.5 miles to rescue them all today and bring out as well the doctor who has been with them since rescuers were able to
2:13 am
reach them some weeks ago as three navy s.e.a.l. officers who accompanied them and stayed with them in the cave since day one. this precarious and dangerous operation is under way yet again. there has already been remarkable success since sunday and monday where the rescuers were able to rescue four boys each of the days and then rush them to nearby hospital for treatment. we know some more details about the rescue operation itself. the boys are dressed in wet suits for the long journey out because they are taken through submerged tunnels and rushing and cold water in the dark. doctors say they emerge at the end of the long journey, a process which takes hours, their bodies are colder because of the cold water and with the wet suits and they are also
2:14 am
suffering from malnutrition. they have not had solid food for more than two weeks. they are wearing full air face masks because they are not trained in sub cuba diving. this claimed the life of a former thai navy s.e.a.l. diver. i am getting breaking news i'll bring to you now. dave and christine, according to two sources, thai navy source and member of the rescue team. a ninth boy is out of the cave and is at the makeshift field hospital. this is breaking news. two sources now involved in the rescue operation. thai navy source and member of the rescue team tell cnn that a ninth boy has emerged from the cave complex and is now being
2:15 am
treated and reviewed at the field hospital at the mouth of the cave. we don't know anything yet about the condition of the ninth boy. now six hours after today's process has begun, we can report a ninth boy has emerged. dave and christine. >> what can you tell us about the boys treated medically? they are wearing eye masks because they have not seen natural sunlight in two weeks. a couple of boys have lung ailments. the condition overall, the boys are doing okay? >> reporter: yeah. that's what the health authorities have said. they gave a detailed briefing today saying all eight who with have been rescued sunday and monday are in pretty good physical shape and pretty good mental shape. yes, they were outfitted with bli blindfolds and later sunglasses because they have not seen
2:16 am
natural light in more than two weeks. they are also rationed solid food because they have not eaten solid food. they have been given gel packs from the divers for nutrition. they are not allowed to gorge themselves us though they are talk -- themselves although they are talking about food for some time. two have inflammation of the lungs and infections. they were not allowed to, the first group on sunday, have not been allowed to touch, hug or kiss their parents. their parents saw them monday evening through glass windows in the hospital ward. they are quarantined to keep conditions sterile. they don't want the immune systems to be weakened to virus and germs.
2:17 am
the thai government doesn't want to have anything go wrong in the critical and vulnerable period in the hours and days after the rescue. >> you have a good point, ivan. they were said to evacuate the strongest first. are we led to believe that process continued and we should be cautious? there is still a long way to go if you believe the three remaining boys could be among the weakest as swimmers or conditions physically? >> all right. ivan is working the scene. we lost his audio. we will let him get out and do more reporting. boy number nine is out of the thai cave. matt rivers has been reporting from the hospital location for a few days now. he has watched each of the boys come there for treatment. another boy is on your way,
2:18 am
matt. >> reporter: yeah. if it follows the proprotocol, e and christine, over the last couple days, as ivan happened, boys will get treatment at the field hospital at the cave and taken to the ambulance to be taken to the military helicopter. it will land at an old airport south of where we are located and the ambulance will drive past us and go into the emergency room. that is what we are expecting. each time the boys have come out, they are trying to get them to the hospital as quickly as possible. we don't know the condition of the ninth boy who emerged from the cave. we know the conditions of the eight boys here which were rescued the last couple days. thai officials are saying they are in good shape all things considered. two had lung infections and responded to treatment. five of the eight had low body temperatures. not surprising with the temperatures in the cave. they had to dive through cold water for hours and hours.
2:19 am
all of the boys are alert and talking and craving food as ivan talked about. they wanted chocolate and fried chicken. that hopefully is the pattern as more boys come out tonight. they will be treated by doctors and evaluated with blood tests for dehydration and put in isolation for seven days. dave and christine, there is a fear the immune systems are weakened. they are put in isolation unit. parents can come see them. they cannot touch or hug them. that is marked improvement from two weeks ago. we are hoping that all of the beds which have been put aside for the boys here in the hospital will be filled up by the end of tonight. >> impressive. the families have banded together and wrote a letter to the coach saying they don't blame him. they are a family. the wild boars. they hope to watch the world cup. matt rivers, thank you.
2:20 am
>> the good news is now it is a matter of when they get to hug their parents and eat delicious meals again. let's go back to ivan watson not far from the cave for the last word on the three boys and coach remaining inside that cave. ivan. >> reporter: we'll be following closely the continuation of this rescue operation. remarkable multinational effort which has some 90 people and number of international divers and thai divers conducting this per perilous operation. the chief predicts the four boy notice cave at the start of the -- boys in the cave at the start of the day and the lone adult with them will be brought out today as well as the doctor and three navy s.e.a.l. officers who have been with them since authorities have been able to reach them at the depth of 2.5
2:21 am
miles deep into the mountain behind me there on the border between thailand and myanmar here in northern thailand. as we hear more about the remarkable rescue effort, we will bring that to you. i have to caution to you this is dangerous stuff. it claimed the life of the former professional navy s.e.a.l. driviver last week. nobody is taking chances and they are taking every possible precaution to make sure the people have been trapped and the rescue workers all emerge safely before this is all concluded. dave and christine. >> painstaking work. huge operation. ivan watson, we will come back when you have more information. when you look at the scale of the operation and the water they were pumping out of the cave had to be put somewhere. pumped into the rice fields and flooded them out after they planted for the season. the government will reimburse the rice farmers.
2:22 am
many say those are al children too. we -- those are our children too. >> we will return to thailand when we hear about the latest on the remaining in the cave. ahead, a struggle to cut a brexit deal is leading to the biggest crisis of theresa may's leadership. ahead, the latest from london. i'm worried i can't find a safe used car. you could start your search at the all-new carfax.com

2:32 am
now the judge says the government cannot extend how long it holds migrant children. and a ninth boy pulled from the cave in thailand. a tenth is very close. we will go live to the cave in a moment. i'm christine romans. >> i'm dave briggs. 31 minutes past the hour. they expect the rescue from the thailand cave to be faster now they are confident and surroundings and know the path and hopefully it is a matter of when all boys and coach are out. a live report straight ahead. we start with the supreme court. the left and right preparing for battle now we know the nominee to replace anthony kennedy on the supreme court. 53-year-old brett kavanaugh introduced by the president last night. the yale educated lawyer worked on the ken starr investigation for bill clinton and worked in the george w. bush white house and worked 12 years as an appellate judge. the president was encouraged by
2:33 am
the conservatives who came to kavanaugh's defense. including ann colter and members from breitbart. >> senate democratic leader chuck schumer released this statement. president trump has put reproductive rights and health care protections for americans on the chopping block. >> my judicial philosophy is forward. a judge must be independent and interpret the law and not make the law. a judge must interpret the constitution as written. informed by history and tradition and precedent. >> vice president mike pence kicks off the white house campaign to pressure red state democrats to support kavanaugh. pence is supporting kavanaugh to mitch mcconnell's office today.
2:34 am
sources in both parties tell us because the lengthy paper trail as a judge, moving the nomination along quickly could be a challenge. you may expect e-mails to be subpoenaed dating back to the bush administration. >> before we have discussion, i want to let you know a tenth boy has been taken out of the cave in thailand. we will go to ivan watson in a second. we will bring in former u.s. attorney michael moore and in washington, writer phil wegmann. michael, you think this will generate controversy? >> i do. i think if trump would pick somebody to stir up the pot, this is the nominee. you have a guy who took three years for kavanaugh to go through the process in the appellate court nomination. a lot of writing. he has been a political insider. he worked in the bush white house. you look back. he worked for ken starr rather.
2:35 am
you look at it. he has taken the position that a president when he was working with ken starr that the president could be held to the office for impeachment and talked about what bill clinton did wrong in office. he shifted in what he is saying. a president is above the law. we don't think he has time to deal with the trivial things. including civil lawsuits. i think trump picked somebody and i said this last segment. he picked lancelot and sent him out in battle. this will stir up for the democrats. we expect the itssues to make te way to the supreme court. trump picked the person who overtly said a president should not be subject to indictment and not subject to the lawsuits and other things which are distraction to the presidency. those things are clear to inflame the passions on the
2:36 am
other side. the shift you see doesn't give comfort to see if he will stand by reproductive rights and gay rights and that type of thing. >> the 2008 writing from the minnesota law review where he says the president should focus on the never ending tasks with as few distractions as possible and defer litigation to investigations until after the president is out of office. phil, that is going to be the attack line of the left. what is the reality here? it is 51-49. there are several red state democrats who are on the spot. let's put up the key senators in all of this as republican susan collins and lisa murkowski. then donnelly and heitkamp and tester and jones. what is the message to the conservative base? >> we already knew it would be contentious regardless of the
2:37 am
nominee. his writings on presidential indictment, obviously, provide a new angle of attack to democrats. let's go back to the minnesota law review article. i think kavanaugh argued persuasively from his perspective that we would have been better off if clinton was focused more on osama bin laden than paula jones. take a closer look at what he said. he didn't say that the courts should protect a president from anytime of indictment -- any type of indictment. he said congress should pass a law so the president should be indicted after the fact. once he leaves office. again, this is in line with what kavanaugh's basic jurisprudence. if there is not a law, congress should go pass it. he expressed his personal opinion back then. he did not say the courts should
2:38 am
provide insulation to the president. this is the line of attack. i think we will find this persuasive for massachusetts senator elizabeth warren. not so much for joe donnelly or west virginia democrat joe manchin. >> one wonders how much resistance is for the cameras. he will interpret the law and not make the law. michael, is this what happens when you win elections? you get to appoint supreme court nominations. >> tell me one supreme court nominee hasn't said they revere the constitution? they all say that. the bottom line is you look at what they have done in the past and look at positions they have taken and look at law review articles and cases and opinions they decided and written. you make the decision if they stand by that or the precedent. you don't want a judge with a shifting sand of precedent. you get out there and because it suits the needs of the day or
2:39 am
political party of the day, they move in that direction. that is what causes discomfort for people like susan collins and lisa murkowski and red state democrats. what can you count on at the end of the day? it is important to remember that he was an author of the ken starr report. he helped write that section. his feeling about the need to focus on the job did not revolve around a blue dress. he wrote about 11 things the president could be impeached on. he didn't say the president needs to be focused on osama bin laden and leave him alone until he gets out of office. we went through a lengthy impeachment process. you have to acknowledge this is fodder for the confirmation process and woven into the reproductive rights. >> the president is tweeting. not about the supreme court nominee. >> you think he would taught
2:40 am
brett kavanaugh -- tout brett kavanaugh. >> let me suggest this to you. he wants this to drag out closer to the midterms. kavanaugh has a beautiful family. he is the picture of what you want to have when you are standing there. you put forward a beautiful family. he may want this to be a fight. he may have out-foxed us all. i know this will draw out into a long battle. this is the guy to drag it out so i can go out and campaign on why we don't need house control by the democrats and we don't need to lose senate seats. >> this is what we agree on. a very, very tough spot for democrats. we have to move on to breaking news from thailand. we appreciate you here. breaking news this morning.
2:41 am
another boy has been removed from the cave where the soccer teammates have been trapped for 18 days. that makes it two out today. rescue teams working right now to bring out two more boys and the coach who remain in the cave. let's go to ivan watson in northern thailand with the latest. ivan. >> reporter: dave and christine, that is right. we can report that an eyewitness part of the rescue operation tells cnn that a tenth boy has emerged from the cave complex and is now being checked over and treated at the field hospital that has been erected outside the entrance of the cave. the rescue operations resumed at 10:00 a.m. local time. that is approaching seven hours ago, dave and christine. since then, we have reports of two boys rescued today. this comes on top of the eight boys who were rescued from groups of four on sunday and
2:42 am
monday and now treated at a hospital at the capital of chiang rai. when the boys are brought out, details of the rescue they are dressed in wet suits to try to keep them warm as they spend hours submerged or possibly submerged in rain or water-filled tunnels for the tricky and dangerous trip out from the cave which is located at a depth of 2.5 miles in that mountain behind me there on the thai/myanmar border. they are also wearing full face air masks because they are submerged. they need air during that trip. according to some of the diving teams we have been in touch with, this is the most dangerous diving ever done. there are sharp rocks and tight corners they have to navigate and in areas where the water
2:43 am
actually lower and shallow, it is harder because the current is stronger and all of this is being done in the darkness as well. we can report that a tenth boy has been rescued in the last couple hours. there remain two boys and the adult soccer coach who are still to be rescued as well as three thai nailvy s.e.a.l. divers and the doctor. they remained with the group ever since they reached them trying to maintain their health and ensure they survive the terrible ordeal. dave and christine. >> ivan, quickly, the boys that have been admitted to hospital, the other eight, these two now are en route at this point. their condition is okay? they are cautious with them,
2:44 am
right? >> reporter: very careful. we're told by the thai medical authorities that they are in pretty good physical health and pretty good mental health. some suffered from inflamed lungs. one had a scratch on his foot. all suffering from malnutrition. some also from exposure. their body temperatures were lowered despite the fact they had wet suits on during the journey out. they are taking no chances. they are under a strict quarantine. parents are not allowed to hug or kiss them. monday night, some of the parents were able to see the first group of four who emerged sunday through a glass. through an i window at -- through a window at the hospital. thailand invested enormous amount. this is an international rescue efforts. they don't want to take any chances. they have not been given solid
2:45 am
food yet. they suffered from malnutrition and have not had solid food. some positive developments in the last couple days of rescues after the ordeal which lasted more than two weeks deep underground. dave and christine. >> thank you, ivan. i'll let you get back to reporting from the scene. we have two more boys. coach and navy s.e.a.l.s and doctor to get out. >> two headed to matt rivers who is live outside the hospital in thailand. matt, what is the latest? >> reporter: we're seeing here is the repeating of a pattern for the last couple days. boys are brought out and traveling in the cave in a group and if this happens the same way as it has over the past couple days and i say if because this is a fluid situation. we don't know the condition of the boys outside of that cave. how much works needs to be done
