tv Early Start With Christine Romans and Laura Jarrett CNN January 20, 2020 2:00am-2:59am PST
the rules for the president's impeachment trial still under lock and key just a day before the trial gets underway. the 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 arguments over ten days like the clinton trial, four sources tell cnn senate gop leaders are considering two 12-hour sessions for both sides 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 people might hear. and there's a second reason. he's afraid that more damning evidence will 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 it quote the framers worst nightmare. they called it a brazen and 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 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 newly named member of the trump legal team. he argues abuse of power and
obstruction of congress even if proven do not amount to impeachable offenses. 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. >> what a difference a couple of decades makes. trump ally senator lindsey graham says the president wants very much to deliver his "state of the union" speech on february 4th with the impeachment trial behind him. and the president was on the road in texas last night speaking to farmers. the loudest applause came when the president went off script talking about impeachment. and without question the crowd at that texas rally had the president's back. cnn's vanessa has more. >> reporter: 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 kmael 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 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 was doing everything he did was for our benefit and we need to recognize that and left this move forward. the politics of it doesn't help us on the ground at all. it needs to go away.
>> i go by what we see and impact us directly. that's just the nature of washington, d.c. but as far as that goes it doesn't have any impact on how i vote the next time around. >> farmers we spoke to say while they will be paying attention to impeachment it is not top of mind for them. what they really want to focus on are these two new trade deals which they say are promises that have been delivered by the president. ryan and laura? >> thanks, and breaking overnight "the new york times" editorial board bucking tradition with its highly sought after endorsement in the democratic primary. >> in this perilous moment both the radical and relist models warrant searrist consideration. for this we're breaking convention and putting our support behind not one but two candidates, elizabeth warren and amy klobuchar. >> "the times" editorial board writing, quote, ms. klobuchar
and ms. warren right now are the democrats best equipped to lead that debate, may the best woman win. >> it tinkers at the edges of critical issues, but, quote merely restoring the status quo will not get america where it needs to go. and an almost trumpian take down of senator bernie sanders. "the times" writes we've seen little advantage to exchanging one divisive figure for another. >> sanders directly attacking bidens record but also forced to admit a video that one of his aides promoted probably should have had a fuller context. that video supposedly showed biden back cuts to social security. in reality biden was mocking cuts proposed by former republican house speaker paul ryan. what's interesting about that times endorsement is yes they didn't pick a clear winner there but in iowa where you pick first and second is important, so that could be part of the thinking

the queen, the commonwealth and my military associations but without public funding. unfortunately that wasn't possible. >> cnn's max foster is live at buckingham palace. max, the prince saying this was his decision, he is taking the pressure off of his wife. at least that's what it seems. >> yeah, and his wife shares the same values as the queen. it does shed more light on it, doesn't it, this situation where the duchess has been over in canada throughout this whole process and didn't even dial into that meeting, the crisis family meeting where they tried to thrash all of this out. this is prince harry really fighting against the narrative the duchess was behind all this, that she's changed since they got married. he's deflecting all of that and taking full responsibility for it but also expressing his sadness for the fact he's having to give up all these worked for all his life, these military positions in particular he's having to drop them and how he had no choice, effectively he
was given no choice by the queen. but it's the queen that draws the line on those things and there was an impasse and interesting to hear his point of view on that. >> and, max, the palace has given us some clues about meghan and harry's future. what can you tell us about that? >> only they'll be spending most of their time in north america. that means they can only spend a number of months in canada if they don't have residency. that does suggest to me a lot of time will be spent in the united states although the palace not confirming any of that. they will retain their cottage here in windsor. they're repaying the renovation costs on that because they are distancing themselves completely from the public money associated with a public role. partly because they're giving up their public roles but also so they can argue there are private individuals and deserve a private life.
last thought on that video you were seeing earlier on, i was told this event was happening. i wasn't told what was in the speech. no media was invited to that speech and it was filmed by a member of staff on their phone. and it was placed on their instagram feed. so this is how they're moving forward. entirely private individuals, any other private individual probably would have done the same. they're no longer public figures in their mind. >> the new era of harry and meghan. thanks for that report. 139 new cases of pneumonia in china including a third death all caused by a new strain of coronavirus. the health officials say the rep pruatory disease related to sars has spread from the central city of wuhan to beijing and officials are concerned it may spread further. south korea has now confirmed its first case. the u.s. says the cdc -- in the

arguably the best player and the chiefs have been waiting 50 years to get back to the super bowl. and once again they had a slow start followed behind by double digits to the titans but mahomes would not be denied. look at the determination on this run. he just would not go down. 27 yards in for the touch down. mahomes and the chiefs came back to beat the titans in the afc. >> it's amazing obviously being able to do it home and do it for the fans and everybody like that was awesome. we fell short last year and we learned from it, and we built every single day and now we have the chance to get to miami and the ultimate chance which is the super bowl. >> the chiefs get the lamar hunt trophy. the afc trophy was named after him in 1984 and it's going to stay in kansas city for the first time ever.
hunts son and widow were on the stage to accept that trophy. her late husband lamar, he was the one who came up with the name super bowl. 49ers meanwhile going to be looking for their sixth super bowl title. they haven't won it since 1945. they dominated the packers on both sides. san francisco only attempted eight passes. that's because raheen mostert was running wild for this one. it's been quite the journey for him since being cut by seven teams until finding a home in san francisco. >> the journey has been crazy. not everybody can deal with that type of stress and pain and agony that i went through, but like i said i kept the faith in not only myself but whoever gave me the opportunity. and this organization has done a
great job with that. >> all right, it's going to be niners and chiefs february 2nd in miami and odds makers say it's going to be a great game. the chiefs opening with 1.5 point favorites over the nines. >> one of the best defenses against one of the best offenses in the league. it really could be a terrific matchup. thanks so much. and laura, you've already started -- you're looking at the odds right now to place your bet. >> i'm on it. three years to the day after he was sworn in as president, president trump is a day away from facing an impeachment trial. why are the gop plans for that trial still private? the gillette skinguard has a guard between the blades that helps protect skin. the gillette skinguard. wean air force veteran made of doing what's right,. not what's easy.

he's afraid that more damning evidence will 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 the democrats 111-page trial memorandum called the president's conduct the framers worst nightmare. the president's lawyers called the articles a brazen and unlawful attempt to overturn the 2016 right 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 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.

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 which he signed just last week 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. 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 was doing everything he did was for our benefit and we need to recognize that and let this move forward. the politics of it, it doesn't

acknowledging divisions within the party writing, quote, ms. klobuchar and ms. warren right now are the democrats best equipped to lead that debate. may the best woman win. >> now, the decision could be a blow to front-runner and former vice president joe biden. the editorial board writes the biden agenda tinkers at the edges of critical issues but quote merely restoring the status quo will not get america where it needs to go. in an almost trumpian take down of senator bernie sanders who i can guarantee did not expect to give this endorsement "the times" writing quote we see little promise in exchanging one divisive figure for another. >> and sparring this weekend between biden and sanders both almost 80 over social security. sanders attacking bidens record but forced to admit one of the videos his aide released should have shown more context. in reality biden was mocking cuts proposed by former republican house speaker paul
ryan. >> "the times" will probably get some criticism for not picking one candidate. in iowa with does matter a little bit different because you do get to pick first, second third. i have to think at the emd of the day voters in iowa will perhaps care a lot more of the endorsement of the des moines register. >> and there will be some debate whether you should be endorsing anyone at all. >> yeah, voters are making this decision on their own not with the help of an editorial board. impeechlt may be the focus in washington, but in other parts of the world there are more pressing concerns. what matters and why that's next. feeling sluggish or weighed down can be a sign your digestive system isn't working at its best. taking metamucil every day can help. its psyllium fiber forms a gel that traps and removes the waste that weighs you down. it also helps lower cholesterol and slows sugar absorption, promoting healthy blood sugar levels. so, start feeling lighter and more energetic by taking metamucil every day.

growing from australia to europe to south america to north africa. >> cnn's international diplomatic editor nick robertson fresh off coverage of the iran crisis in the middle east is here with us this morning. nick, thanks so much for joining us here in person. good to see you. >> so many big international stories. put up a map here and show you everything from iran which you obviously covered to venezuela, libya. what stands out to you that's going to have the biggest impact? >> i think iran right now because of the potential for conflict. but also it showed the world the political rift in the united states, you know, the president being called out on the reasons to kill the iranian military commander qassem soleimani. so the united states allies caught off-guard. plus the real impact for the world that the united states and president trump don't seem to have a game plan going forward so that creates uncertainty, but it's also left this narrative well the united states is going
to go it alone and there's a growing sense particularly in europe that transatlantic alliance is not as strong as it was before. that's the big one but perhaps behind all that is going to be climate which we're seeing in australia at the moment. >> it's interesting you point out, you know, the relationship president trump has or the frame relationship he has over european leaders. i do want to play some sound about president trump weighing in on that. take a listen. >> we've been taken advantage of by everybody. europe, who would think europe? europe is in many ways more difficult and is more difficult than china. nobody would believe that. >> nobody would believe that. that's an american president saying he has a better relationship with the totalitarian regime in china than he does with european leaders. how would european leaders respond to that? >> they would take the long view and recognize the relationship and strategic interests but also look at the elections coming and
say is he going to get another four years, and that's a real question at the moment. what we're hearing from european leaders we heard this from angela merkel, she was the one who held this conference over the weekend about to talk briefly about another conflict in the world, libya which is, you know, there's this sort of semicease-fire. so angela merkel said just last weekend we cannot rely on the united states the way we used to. she's been saying this for a couple of years but that feeling is real and we heard it from the british secretary of defense the weekend before as well as wallace saying the united kingdom can't look to the united states the same way. so i think that's how, you know, when the europeans hear president trump says difficult dealing the yourpens you're not going to hear them say this publicly but they're going to think we're having trouble dealing with this u.s. president. but underlying is this the future or is there some kind of
reset with the next president? >> talk to us more about this idea the u.s. going to alone when it comes to climate change? obviously president trump pulling out of the paris climate deal. he's going to davos this week. you're not going, but he's going to be there. >> i'm not going either. >> how's this going to play out there? what's the conversation going to be like in davos around climate change? >> if you look at the world economic forum the host for this event in davos the top five points on their report is about the climate, greta the young climate change activist is going to be tlch to use more public transport, they're going to be given grips for their shoes so they can walk about in the snow rather than take limousines between the different venues. there's going to be a stronger narrative ability that. there is going to be a hope i think to build on what we've heard from some business leaders that they want to put their employees and the climate ahead
of shareholders. this would be a new sort of thinking narrative, but president trump's stance on climate change is just one of many areas where he's sort of out of step with many leaders in the world. but, you know, you won't be having justin trudeau and the french president emmanuel maw crone, you know, who's a big champion of climate change. boris johnson won't be there and britain will be the next host over the climate forum. it is going to be an issue on the table but i don't think you're going to find people confronting president trump on it. they might on other issues. >> speaking of boris johnson a week and a half away from brexit, we've been talking about brexit for so long, is the british government ready for this transition? >> they would say yes. they have a huge majority. so what they are undeniably ready for is to politically move this forward. so boris johnson is in a hugely
different position than prime minister theresa may. britain does lead the european union at the ebld of this month, january, but it's not the end of the story because there's the future trade relationship to be negotiated and boris johnson has put a strict time limit on that and the europen leaders are saying, whoa, hold on a minute this is a negotiation and we don't think that's enough time to do this. so although we think leaving the european union is done and the divorce part of the deal is done, it's like okay how do we move forward? and that's yet to be done. and the indications that we're hearing in the u.k. that britain's going to be further away from eu regulations and sandards which is going to make any deal, you know, harder to agree. and therefore longer to agree. so, you know, we're headed for another showdown towards the end of this year. >> what you're saying is we're never going to stop talking about brexit. it's an indefinite discussion. >> i think you and i could probably agree to put it to one
side but it's going to continue. >> good to see you here on set. all right, well prince harry making his first public statement since buckingham palace announced he and his wife meghan would give up their royal titles and no longer represent the queen as working members of it royal family. >> the decision i have made for my wife and i to step back is not one i have 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, you know, was the prince trying to have it both ways or was he trying to find a workable solution here to not accept public funding? >> i think he was trying to get what he wanted and he got most of what he wanted. the crucial thing he wanted which was freedom to do what he wants where he wants and get that freedom for his wife as well. so that was the priority. the queen clearly put her foot down and said you're either in or you're out, you either receive public money for public work or you don't. he opted for out. he said there was no choice in that. very powerful speech last night showing his sadness. so he had to give up various different roles but the ones most sensitive to him are those military associations. he's part of the military. the queen is commander in chief. he wanted to keep them and he couldn't. so there's compromise on all sides here. you have to remember the queen lost two key members of the royal family who carry out a lot of royal work and step in for here quite regularly but
hopefully i think everyone feels a line has been drawn under this, so we'll wait and see how the rest of the family respond to harry's speech because it was quite poignant in places. >> we've seen some details the palace released about harry and ma meghan's future roles and they have a very robust instagram account. what do you think comes next? >> it's interesting that speech, i was told what was happening. i wasn't told what was in it. and i was told there'd be video but that video was put out on instagram. no media at all were invited to the event. so this is the new future i think. because there are public individuals, they are private individuals, they can do things in their own way. they are publishing their media on their instagram feed like any other individuals do. it's an indication how things are going to go. they're also moving over to north america as well. will they split their time between the u.s. and canada
we'll have to wait and see on that. the other key part is how harry stepped in and tried to get rid of this narrative that meghan is to blame for all of this. he said he made the decision for the family to leave the royal family. and she has the queens value and she hasn't changed since they got married. these are all things you've seen in the papers he was trying to counteract that. >> some notable push back there from harry. max foster in london for us. thanks so much. see you soon. we'll be right back. when you take your lashes to paradise, you take a little paradise with you. lash paradise from l'oréal paris voluptuous volume. intense length. no wonder there's one sold every five seconds. only one mascara can take your lashes to paradise. lash paradise mascara from l'oréal paris.
