tv   New Day Weekend With Victor Blackwell and Christi Paul  CNN  June 16, 2019 3:00am-4:00am PDT

3:00 am
the u.s. targeted russia's electrical power grid and malware and it's reportedly been placed without president trump's knowledge. >> what makes this particularly interesting to the chairman of the joint chiefs, the intelligence officials and others are reluctant to give very in-depth briefings to the president on issues related to russia. >> the president can't be trusted with this information, therefore, the security services are hesitant to give it to him. >> joe biden does not have what it takes. now, i see that pocahontas is doing better. i would love to run against her, frankly. >> you can expect some attacks on joe biden, but you are going
3:01 am
to see more attention on elizabeth warren. >> hong kong people have been lied to so many times, we have learned that the governments cannot be trusted. good morning to you. you're up early on a sunday. we're glad for it. i'm christi paul. >> i'm martin savidge in for victor blackwell. happy father's day. >> happy father's day to you. "the new york times" reporting the u.s. has deployed potentially crippling computer code into russia's electric power grid. >> "the times" calls it a land mine in a foreign power network. they report it can be used for surveillance or attack. either way, it's sending a message, quote, intended partly as a warning and partly to be poised to conduct cyber strikes if a major conflict broke out
3:02 am
between washington and moscow. >> you might expect the president to be directly involved in signing off on something like this attack. you would think so, right? well, two administration officials told "the times" they believed president trump had not been briefed in any detail. about this u.s. computer code. he and he lashing out now on that report. >> we are covering this story from a number of different angles. we have cnn white house reporter sara westwood live at the white house and cnn's matthew chance live from moscow. let's start with matthew first. good morning. i know it's not morning, but what are we hearing from the russians on all of this? >> reporter: hey, martin, it's been a meted response so far. it's a sunday morning. the kremlin so far hasn't issued a statement. the response in the russian press, which is always a way of gauging what the kremlin will do, has been relatively muted.
3:03 am
they said it's not surprising the country should be probing each other's cyber defenses in this way. a number of them have been pointing at the hypocrisy of this, saying what would the hysterical reaction of the united states been if russia had plant this disruptive code into the u.s. infrastructure? in general, though, it's not obviously going to be a good thing for the relationship between the united states and russia. it's strained over a whole issue of things. vladimir putin gave an interview saying the relationship between the u.s. and russia is getting worse and worse. it's already strained over syria and ukraine, over allegations of russia meddling in u.s. elections. >> we appreciate it so much, thank you. the pentagon and intelligence officials told "the times" there was, quote, hesitation in briefing the president on the malware operation. so, we want to go to cnn white
3:04 am
house reporter sarah woodwood because i think most people would expect the president to know something like this. >> that's right, christi. most people would, but "the times" reports that administration officials were able to conduct this operation without presidential approval because of it is notice powers that were slipped into the military authorization bill that congress passed last year. basically, it allowed the military to conduct certain operations, clandestine operations in cyberspace the same way they would conduct routine land or air operations that didn't need express permission from the president to be carried out. that's what cyber command used in this instance to be able to inconduct these incursions into the russian power grid without seeking presidential approvappr. "the times" attributed this to brief president trump that that, perhaps, he would discuss this with foreign leaders or he could do something to rock that
3:05 am
relationship he seems to value so highly with russian president vladimir putin. reacting to "the times" reporting yesterday, president trump denied the story. he wrote on twitter, do you believe that the failing "new york times" just did a story stating the united states is substantially increasing cyber attacks on russia? this is a virtual act of treason by a once great paper so desperate for a story, any story, even if bad for our country? "the new york times" responded in a statement defending its reporting and writing, accusing the press of treason is dangerous. we described in the article to the government before publication, as our story notes, president trump's own national security official said there was there were no concerns. that is, indeed, noted in "the times" reporting that "the times" reporters brought this reporting to national security officials who didn't have a problem with it. "the times" speculated perhaps
3:06 am
that was because the u.s. wanted these incursions to be known. neu th now this is all out publicly. >> there's no question the president is fuming over this one. sarah westwood, thank you for that. this was not a case of the president sitting in the situation room surrounded by advisers as they coordinated the operation. for more on why that didn't happen in that way, cnn spoke to one of the co-authors of "the times" report last night. >> what makes this particularly interesting, though, as we know from other reporting in other cases that the chairman of the joint chiefs, the intelligence officials and others are reluctant to give very in-depth briefings to the president on issues related to russia for the uncertainty about how he'll react. >> cnn political analyst, white
3:07 am
house reporter for t"the washington post", good to have you here with us. have you ever seen a situation like this, a scenario like this, dealing with national security where the president would not be advised? >> no, this is an unprecedented set of circumstances where the president's advisers are treating him kind of like a faberge egg where they do not want to have his ego impacted by the fact they're moving against russia. they know the president can be imp impetuous at times and he can take well-laid plans about national security and we've seen the president spill information to russian officials in the oval office that was classified. we've seen the president stop plans by about the national -- by his treasury department to levy sanctions at the last minute. it's very clear that the national security officials who are part of this program are not wanting the president to learn about this and stop it before
3:08 am
they can move forward with a very complex set of plans they have to borough into the russian power grid. we've seen in a number of mueller report, a number of tell-all books, they are worried he might take actions to up-end the plans they worked on for months to protect the national security of the u.s. >> are intelligence officials required to alert the president of something like this? >> in most cases you would say yes, but in this case it does appear they do have the authority as some military officials have in the field to take action without coming to the commander in chief in first. they have broader authority to act on their own. it seems they're using that to the full extent they can to make sure they can act without briefing the president in full and the president has said he's going to leave a lot of the decision-making to his generals out in the field. we think that mostly in terms of military action in the kinetic way but it also applies to cyber
3:09 am
warfare, which happens online and in the cyber arena. it does appear the president gave this authority to his officials and they're using it to his full extent. >> now, you know, we heard the reaction from russia there from matt saying that they -- russians are saying this is very hypocritical, the u.s. would be hysterical if this happened the other way around. especially it did happen the other way around, didn't it, with the 2016 election. >> yeah. "the new york times" story lays out clearly the u.s. officials realized that after the 2016 elections and after the russians became much more aggressive intruding into not only the u.s. power grid but the u.s. electoral system that they needed to do more. i think that's -- this is what we're seeing from this "new york times" story, is that this is a reaction to what the russians have already done. >> is there concern, do you think, that russia could use
3:10 am
this as its own reason, it's own reasoning to react and do something similar? even though we know, obviously, russia has already tried to infiltrate the u.s. on cyber level in some case? but could they see this as provocation from the u.s. and react? >> yes. that is the delicate balance that these various cyber security officials are dealing with. they realized they don't want to escalate things too far and have a situation where another cold war in the online space with russia but they want the russians to know we're able to take action if they don't pull back because they've seen the russians be aggressive, not only in the u.s. election system but taking steps with ukraine and u.s. power grid to show they have the opportunity and ability to infiltrate our system.
3:11 am
so, i think the national security officials wanted to show they have the ability to punch back if russia decides to take any action but they didn't want to go to the full extent, to the extent we're in a cold war with russia and it's clear they didn't want the president to know about this because the president also does not want to be in a cold war with russia either. >> goodness. thank you, sir. >> thank you. demonstrators are flooding the streets of hong kong. they're protesting a controversial extradition bill. what they're demanding be done. we'll take you there live. and the crew of an oil tanker attacked in the gulf of oman has arrived safely in dubai. we're talking about how they're doing and what's next. also, two tornadoes hit parts of indiana. we'll take a closer look at the damage they left behind. we'll be right back. ♪ ♪ award winning interface.

in years. when the government refused to back down and only after raging battles took place here and violence did the government suddenly blink and back down. ultimately one of the big problems here is the people we see here do not trust neither the government of hong kong, and this is more important, nor the central government in mainland china, which would never tolerate mass shows of dissent like this. neither in the media nor out in the streets. christi? martin? >> cnn's ivan watson giving us the breakdown as to exactly why this protest is taking place. >> ivan, thank you so much. cnn correspondent matthew rivers is with the protesters now. what are you seeing in the midst of everything, matt? >> reporter: well, i'm seeing a protest that shows no signs of slowing down. in fact, people where we are are trying to join the march. and they're not going anywhere
3:18 am
because there's so many people. look at what's behind me here. the street that you see at the intersection down the road there, that's the main march route. all the people that are closer to me, they're just waiting to join the march. and they can barely do that because there's so many people in that street that they can't actually join because no one's moving. yet, they're not leaving. they're still here. it shows how passionate these people are. it's very calm but very energetic. they are demanding all the things that ivan just laid out. he's right. i live in mainland china normally. i'm just here covering this story. they would never be allowed in mainland china. in addition to the extradition bill, part of the reason these people are here -- let's show them one more time, natalie -- part of the reason they are here, they do not want to be like mainland china. they don't want to have democratic freedoms and that's why these protesters aren't

going home and these protests are likely to continue for quite some time. >> when we talk about the enormity of this crowd, last sunday i think they said they -- they anticipated or they had estimated about a million people were involved there. do you believe this is bigger? >> reporter: it certainly has the potential to either reach that number or get bigger. i'm not really sure, i'm no expert on crowd size, but the amount of time i've been out on these sdpreets every single street you go to, it is jam packed with people. if it doesn't hit a million, it's probably going to get very close. that shows how motivated people are. just a week ago there were a million people out there. we thought there might be protest fatigue. it doesn't look like there's any fatigue here. >> very good point. matt rivers, thank you so much. all 23 crew members from that oil tanker attacked in the

3:28 am
>> i'm sorry. i just wanted to say, what do you think they're going to specifically ask of these candidates? >> well, we're going to release a moral poverty budget tomorrow as well. they're requesting to be talking about living wages. thafr going to be talking about how we need to -- they're going to talk about why health care is so critical. they'll ask candidates questions like, what do you think about the fact that we've seen racist voter suppression like we haven't seen since the days of jim crow. guess what, the persons that mostly benefit from racist voter s suppression, when they get in policy they pass policies. they are interlocking
3:29 am
injustices. we'll be raising, first, the awareness and then talking about why we've got to get rid of this racist voter suppression. why we need health care for everybody. why we need to fund public education, so on and on forth. >> you say we need to get honest about the politics of rejection. what do you mean by that? >> that we are rejecting too many people. this poor people's campaign and our work is a game-changer. it's saying, let's focus on the rejected. we cannot continue to keep rejecting the poor. that's the only way for this country to be disempowered. this is bigger than the next election. this is about whether america can be america itself. it's about our long-term -- you cannot have 45.3% of your people ignored. we cannot have campaigns like 2016 and not have one hour of

race to the finish for the u.s. supreme court. the high court has until the end of the month to rule on two dozen cases. two of which could impact elections for decades to come. and with the balance at five conservative and four liberal justices, there's a lot more added scrutiny on the court. ariane de vogue joins us now. good morning. >> good morning, martin. >> let's talk about first about what has to get done and also what would be considered the
3:44 am
most consequential issues the court's tackling. >> right. we're reaching the end of this term. as soon as monday, we could hear whether the supreme court is going to take up a case about daca. that's that obama-era protection. that trump administration moved to terminate it. that was blocked by the lower courts. we could hear monday whether they'll take that up for next term. also, we're waiting for opinions. one of the biggest cases of the term is that census case. whether or not the trump administration can add a citizenship question to the 2020 census. challengers here say that is pretext. that that question is there to intimidate minorities and hurt their political representation. there's another case on partisan gerrymanderi gerrymandering. the court will decide how far

3:46 am
