tv   Early Start With Christine Romans and Laura Jarrett  CNN  January 20, 2020 1:00am-2:00am PST

1:00 am
the much coveted "the new york times" democratic endorsement is out and more than one candidate has a reason to celebrate. two officers dead, two people unaccounted for after a deadly rampage in hawaii. and super bowl 54 is ret and 49ers square off for the lombardy trophy.
1:01 am
good morning. welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world. this is "early start." >> so glad you're here, ryan. it's monday, january 20th, 4:00 a.m. in new york, just two weeks until the iowa caucuses. rules for the president trump's impeachment trial still under lock and key just a day before the trial gets under way. republicans who are already trying to limit new evidence democrats can introduce are now trying to limit the trial duration as well. instead of 24 hours of opening statement arguments four sources tell cnn gop candidates are considering two 12 hour sessions to move things along. with no formal plan in place democrats are ramping up pressure on the majority leader. >> why is mcconnell being so secretive about his proposal? well, there are two obvious answers. one, he wants to rush this thing through so quickly because he's afraid of what the american
1:02 am
people might hear. and there's a second reason. he's afraid that more damning evidence will come to light. >> schumer says he's prepared to force votes on additional witnesses and documents as early as tomorrow if mcconnell's proposal doesn't include that. that demand echoed by house impeachment manager jason crow. >> let's call the witnesses, then. he has said his call was a perfect call. he's said he's done nothing wrong. so let's have the people who are in the best position to confirm that, come in and testify before the u.s. senate. >> president trump has until noon today if he wants to file a trial brief with the secretary of the senate. his lawyers fought back ferociously this weekend after democrats' 111-page trial memorandum called it the framers worst nagt mare. the president's lawyers called the articles a brazen and unlawful attempt to overturn the 2016 vote and interfere with the
1:03 am
2020 election. republican senators already lining up to support that claim. >> my personal preference, chuck, would see this thing dismissed out of hand because i think it's a illegitimate process in the house. >> this is hit job and what they're doing to the presidency is a danger to the institution itself. >> we've seen the president in public ask the ukrainians to get involved, ask the chinese to get involved. >> well, those are just statements, political. they make them all the time. >> allen degsworts argues abuse of power and obstruction of congress even if proven does not amount to impeachable offenses. he didn't always feel that way, though. >> without a crime there can be no impeachment. so it certainly doesn't have to be a crime. if you have somebody who completely corrupts the office of president and who abuses trust and who poses great danger to our liberty you don't need a technical crime.
1:04 am
>> trump ally lindsey graham says the president wants very much to deliver the "state of the union" speech on february 4th with the impeachment trial behind him. >> meanwhile the president on the road in texas last night speaking to farmers, the loudest applause came when president trump went off script talking about impeachment. and without question the crowd at that texas rally had the president's back. >> reporter: hi, ryan and laura, the president speaking to a couple thousand farmers here in austin, texas. and he did not waste any time touting his two big trade agreements. the phase one trade deal with china and usmca which he plans to sign very soon. but his biggest applause line actually came when he mentioned impeachment. take a listen to how the crowd here reacted. >> we're achieving what no administration has ever achieved before, and what do i get out of it, tell me? i get impeached. that's what i get out of it.
1:05 am
by these radical left lunatics, i get impeached. but that's okay, the farmers are sticking with trump. they're sticking with trump. >> you hear the crowd really giving their support to the president. so we wanted to ask farmers how do they feel about impeachment? >> trump is innocent. he didn't do anything he shouldn't have done. he was doing everything he did was for our benefit as this country and we need to recognize that and move forward. the politics of it, it doesn't help us on the ground at all. it needs to go away. >> i go by what we see and impacts us directly. the political side of it, there's always going to be that. that's just the nature of washington, d.c. but as far as that goes that doesn't have an impact on how i vote next time around. >> farmers say while they will be paying attention to impeachment it is not top of mind for them. they want to focus on these two new trade deals which they say are promises that have been
1:06 am
delivered by the president. >> thank you for that report. and an odd development at the white house. the head of european and russian affairs at the national security council, andrew peak, escorted off the grounds. he had been set to travel with the president to the economic forum in switzerland but no longer. both who testified to the house impeachment inquiry about the ukraine affair. and "the new york times" editorial board bucking tradition with its highly sought after endorsement in the democratic primary. >> in their perilous moment both the radical and realist models want consideration and for this reason we're breaking tradition and putting our support behind not one but two candidates.
1:07 am
>> the editorial board acknowledging divisions within the party writing quote mrs. cloep char and ms. warren right now are the democrats best equipped to lead that debate. any hope of restoring unity will require modesty, willingness to compromise and support the many demographics that make up the democratic coalition. for senator klobuchar that's acknowledging the depth of the nation's dysfunction. >> the decision is a blow to the front-runner and former vice president joe biden. the editorial board writes his agen agenda tinkers at the issue of health care and climate but merely restoring the status quo will not get america where it needs to go. and "the times" writes, quote, three years into the trump administration we see little advantage exchanging one over promising divisive figure in washington to another. >> both almost 80 over social
1:08 am
security, sanders directly attacking biden's record but also forced to admit a video his aides supported should have more context. two police officers shot and killed responding to domestic violence call in hawaii. authorities say the first officer to arrive outside a home found a stabbing victim. when she and other officers approached the home suspect jerry hanal opened fire. officers tiffany, enrique and -- were killed. the honolulu police chief says the families and department are just devastated. >> they left in the morning alive and they come to the hospital and find out that their loved ones are no longer around, so very emotional, very
1:09 am
emotional. i'm sorry? i did. they were like my kids. >> the gunman also allegedly set a fire that completely destroyed at least seven homes. police say it will take several days to process the scene. the work includes removing the possible remains of three people now unaccounted for. two women and the suspect. the fbi and local law enforcement in virginia all responding to threats of violence at a big gun rights rally today in the state capitol of richmond. federal authorities already arresting several suspected neo-nazis in the country concerned they were planning violence. governor ralph northam declaring a state of emergency after it was learned hate groups planned to attend. acknowledging there is a bit of a different atmosphere at the annual gun rights rally. >> it just didn't start today. this started back in november. we peacefully demonstrated throughout the commonwealth. and if anything bad comes out of tomorrow, i hope that the world
1:10 am
understands it's not virginia gun owners that are causing this. it is the same kind of terrorist organizations that have caused unrest in other places. >> virginia's republican house leader says that anyone spreading, quote, white supremacist garbage is not welcome in richmond. and i've covered richmond for several years. there are a lot of people nervous about what's going to happen there today but they do feel law enforcement has it under control. >> northam clearly trying to avoid another charlottesville. prince harry speaking candidately why he and his wife are avoiding royal duties.
1:11 am
1:12 am
1:13 am
1:14 am
prince harry making his first public statement since buckingham palace announced he and his wife meghan would give up their royal titles and would no longer represent the queen as working members of the royal family. >> the decision that i have made for my wife and i to step back is not one i made lightly.
1:15 am
there was so maybe months of talks after so many years of challenges. and i know i haven't always gotten it right but as far as this goes there really was no other option. what i want to make clear is we're not walking away and we certainly aren't walking away from you. our hope was to continue serving the queen, the commonwealth and my military associations but without public funding. unfortunately, that wasn't possible. >> cnn's max foster live at buckingham palace. max, the prince says it was his decision, not meghan's. >> reporter: yeah, which is interesting. there's several nods to meghan obviously during the speech and it does shed more light how this unfolded, why the duchess was in canada, not here. he's making it clear it was his decision to do this. this is against a backdrop of this narrative that the duchess
1:16 am
is manipulating him. she's changed since she got married. he also said this is the same woman that i married. so this is him taking responsibility for this huge seismic decision for the british monarchy and trying to protect his wife which what he's always been about all along, since he got married, since he had archie he's just been concerned about protecting his family and feeling guilty frankly his presence is affecting their lives. >> so, max, we do know that the palace did release some details about harry and meghan's future roles. exactly what can you tell us about that? >> he gave a nod to it in that speech where he's expressing his sadness. he wanted to keep some of his royal roles and then move to canada and carry out a private life. the queen clearly put her foot down on that, very firm on it saying you're either in or you're out. and if you want to go out you're
1:17 am
going to have to let go all the public duties which are publicly founded and that includes all the military associations close to his heart. you've got to remember this is someone who's dedicated his entire life to his royal work and supporting the monarchy. it's going to be a bit of a shock to him going to the outside world having a bit of a different lifestyle and also not having the support around him that he probably takes for granted. >> max foster, thanks for that update. three top officials fired in puerto rico after a warehouse filled with unused disaster supplies was discovered. when we started our business

1:24 am
in his acceptance speech pitt did not take himself too seriously. >> i've got to add this to my tinder profile. let's be honest it was a difficult part, a guy who gets high, takes his shirt off and doesn't get on with his wife. there's a big stretch. >> as if on cue pitt's ex-wife jennifer aniston later picked up a trophy for the backstage drama of the morning show which is nothing like this show, right, laura? >> everyone went crazy last night seeing jen and brad just be nice to each other. >> there's a little bit of drama. as we observe martin luther king, jr. day the navy is set to name a $12.5 billion aircraft carrier after the first african-american to receive a cross for valor. he was awarded for his heroism
1:25 am
during the pearl harbor attack in 1941. he manned a machine gun on the uss west virginia. at the time african-americans were not allowed to operate guns in the navy. super bowl liv will feature the kansas city chiefs and the san francisco 49ers. the 49ers defeated the green bay packers 24-20 in the nfc championship game. and had a rushing game rushing for 220 yards and four touch downs for san francico. the kansas city chiefs defeating the tennessee titans. this is going to be a powerhouse matchup. the chiefs have at least sixth ranked office. the niners have the second best defense. super bowl liv february second in miami. and those are the two teams you
1:26 am
predicted at the beginning of the season. >> do you have a favorite? >> i don't know maybe the afc because i'm a buffalo bills fan. why are gop plans for the president's impeachment trial still private? democrats demanding mitch mcconnell release the play book. and vaporize it. ahhhhh! shhhhh! nyquil severe with vicks vapocool. the vaporizing nighttime, coughing, aching, stuffy head, best sleep with a cold, medicine.

1:32 am
clinton trial four sources tell cnn that senate gop leaders are considering two 12-hour sessions for both sides to move things along. but with no formal plan in place democrats are ramping up the pr pr pressure on the majority leader. >> why is mcconnell being so secretive about his proposal? well, there are two obvious answers. one, he wants to rush this thing through so quickly because he's afraid of what the american people might hear. and there's a second reason he's afraid that more damning evidence would come to light. >> president trump has until noon today if he wants to file a trial brief with the secretary of the senate. his lawyers fought back ferociously this weekend after democrats 111-page trial memorandum called the president's conduct the framers worst nightmare. the framers lawyers called the
1:33 am
articles a brazen unlawful attempt to overturn the 2016 vote and interfere with the 2020 election. republican senators who will serve as jurors already lining up to support that claim. >> my personal preference, chuck, would be to see this thing dismissed out of hand because i think it's an illegitimate process in the house. this has been a political hit job. this is political revenge, and what they're doing to the presidency is a danger to the institution itself. >> we've seen the president in public ask the ukrainians to get involved, ask the chinese to get involved. >> well, those were just statements political. they make them all the time. >> allen dershowitz is a new member of the trump legal team. he argues abuse of power and obstruction of congress even if proven do not amount to impeachable offenses. but he didn't always feel that way. >> without a crime there can be no impeachment. >> so it certainly doesn't have to be a crime. if you have somebody who
1:34 am
completely corrupts the office of president and who abuses trust and who poses great danger to our liberty, you don't need a technical crime. >> trump ally senator lindsey graham said the president very much wants to deliver his "state of the union" speech on february 4th with the impeachment trial behind him. the president on the road in texas last night speaking to farmers. the loudest applause came when president trump went off script talking about impeachment, and without question the crowd at that texas rally had the president's back. >> reporter: the president speaking to a couple thousand farmers here in austin, texas, he did not waste any time touting his two big trade agreements, the phase one trade deal with china and usmca which he plans to sign very soon. but his biggest applause line actually came when he mentioned impeachment. take a listen to how the crowd here reacted. >> we're achieving what no

1:37 am
the status quo will not get america where it needs to go. and an almost trumpian take down of senator bernie sanders "the seattle times" writes three years into the trump administration we see little advantage into exchanging one over promising divisive figure in washington for another. >> sanders directly attacking bidens record but also forced to admit a video of one of his aides promoted should have included fuller context. that video supposedly showed biden backing cuts to social security. in reality biden was mocking cuts proposed by former republican house speaker paul ryan. two police officers shot and killed responding to a domestic violence call in hawaii. authorities say the first officer to arrive outside a home in waikiki found a stabbing victim. when she and other officers approached the home suspect jerry hanel opened fire.

prince harry making his
1:44 am
first public statement since buckingham palace announced he and his wife meghan would give up their royal titles and would no longer represent the queen as working members of the royal family. >> the decision that i have made for my wife and i to step back is not one i made lightly. there was so many months of talks after so many years of challenges. and i know i haven't always gotten it right, but as far as this goes there really was no other option. what i want to make clear is we're not walking away and we certainly aren't walking away from you. our hope was to continue serving the queen, the commonwealth and my military associations but without public funding. unfortunately that wasn't possible. >> cnn's max foster is live for us at buckingham palace. max, he says he wanted to try to figure out a way to do this, to keep serving without public funding. why couldn't he do that? >> reporter: because that's the
1:45 am
halfway house the queen wasn't willing to accept. you can't some elements of your public service and keep the bits you like and then go out on private income. you're either in or out, and he's mentioning there those military associations which were the core elements of what he wanted to keep doing, essentially. but those are public service roles which he was only given because he was a senior royal. he's giving that up, and that's the price he pays for this move he wanted to make. and he said he's sad about this, he's expressing his sadness and this is the first sort of sense we've had from his side how this was a compromise ultimately and everyone lost out a bit here. >> and the palace released some details over the weekend about harry and meghan's future role. what can you tell us about that, max? >> reporter: fair future roles have yet to be carved and one of the topics they're still working
1:46 am
through is the brand of sussex royal and the website is sussex royal as well. but it does look as though they're going to have to take the title out of there or that's at least part of the debate because the big question now is how they continue and earn private incomes without seeming to be cashing in on the royal brand? so there are no commercial agreements signed as yet, but they're clearly looking at them. they're going to need them. there's also questions about staffing, the public service staff here. how they're going to match all of that up. so we're learning more about their future roles but it's going to be outside this entire fold which is what harry is sad about. interesting as well in speech distancing meghan from all of this. she was obviously in canada as all this played out. he's saying it was his decision to reach this deal, and that she's the same person that he married. so that is really speaking to this narrative that perhaps meghan was behind all of this. he's saying that was not the
1:47 am
case. >> clearly trying to push back on the idea she was the cause of all this. max foster, thanks so much for that. 139 new cases of pneumonia in china including a third death all caused by a new strain of coronavirus. health officials say the respiratory disease related to sars has spread. officials are concerned the disease may spread further as chinese tourists travel for the lunar holiday. airports in new york, san francisco and los angeles will start screening passengers arriving from guam. opposition leader juan guaido making a surprise appearance in neighboring columbia. guaido is recognized as venezuela's rightful president by the u.s. and 60 other
