tv   New Day Weekend With Victor Blackwell and Christi Paul  CNN  January 16, 2021 4:00am-5:00am PST

4:00 am
listen, it was a shocking moment. i don't know where you were when you were watching what was happening at the capitol. it wasn't just jolting to all of us who were watching it. it was jolting to the world. and newspapers worldwide are an indication of that. >> yeah. let's look at a few of them. this is from new zealand, they spoke with rioters there, and the quote huge in red "you did not win." >> "democracy under siege there." >> and from the west australian which read "last days of trump." the next hour of "new day" starts now. the american capitol now a fortress.
4:01 am
unprecedented scenes as washington and the country brace for more violence. >> the american people can be confident. we're going to ensure that we have a safe inauguration. >> we are seeing an extensive amount of concerning online chatter. >> there was a guy ripping my mask off. he was practically foaming at the mouth. >> more than 2 million people have now died from coronavirus. >> the vaccine rollout in the united states has been a dismal failure. >> we were a bit too rigid. we were not getting the vaccine doses out in the most efficient manner. >> new warning from the cdc says there's a new more contagious coronavirus variant that could become the dominant strain. >> we're seeing viruses do what viruses do -- they mutate. this is "new day weekend" with victor blackwell and christi paul.
4:02 am
capitol hill, and 25,000 national guard troops around that region. we will, of course, go into that area with our reporters in just a moment. because law enforcement officials say that there are -- they're tracking dozens of people who may be headed to washington. the u.s. capitol bracing for more protests. maybe more than protests, ahead of president-elect joe biden's inauguration. and the department of homeland security, along with other agencies say that domestic extremists pose the most likely event to that event on wednesday. >> and we are learning more about that attempted coup on january 6th. there's an internal report that details major security and intelligence failures now. cnn's pete muntean is following the latest from washington, d.c. we know that several states and d.c. are ramping up security in anticipation of these armed protests leading up to the inauguration, pete. but talk to us about what you're seeing there near the captain right now. >> reporter: it is layer after layer of security here, christi.
4:03 am
in fact, we just learned from the secret service that we need to leave where we are, blocks away from the capitol, so they can do a secret service security sweep. we're not exactly close. and we are separated from the capitol complex by this giant eight-foot fence. on the other side of this, 7,000 members of the national guard, according to the major general welcome walker of the d.c. guard. he says that 25,000 members of the guard may be nearby inauguration day. they are armed with m-4s. he said they are ready for this challenge, but they may be here for at least another week. here's what he said. >> so, the guardsmen on the ground right here, right now, they understand that they'll be here until the end of the inaugural period, which is 24 january. now, if conditions change, they'll stay here longer. so the bottom line is the national guard will be here, as long as we're required to be here. as long as we're needed.
4:04 am
>> reporter: major general william walker talking to me in his dress blues after speaking to house leadership trying to reassure them that the guards' presence here will make this a peaceful transition of power. the flip side of this is that this will be a very quiet transition of power. almost nobody here right now, near the capitol, a place that would typically be filled with people. you can see it off in the distance there. and we are not exactly close there. this is going to be an inauguration like no other. >> indeed. hey, pete, before we let you go, we've seen the pictures of the rioters. a couple of them with zip ties. we have seen the video of them chanting "hang mike pence." but feds have kind offed rolled back, or walked back, the claim that rioters attempted to capture and assassinate elected officials. do you know why? >> reporter: it's a pretty big shift in the narrative, victor. but it does not get at this security presence, not necessarily back for the armed insurrection last week.
4:05 am
the threats keep coming in, according to the fbi. and the secret service and the pentagon about more possible armed protests here in washington. all of this is about the potential of what is to come. >> pete muntean in washington. thank you. let's go to the white house reporter sarah westwood. sarah, we know the president obviously making his plans to exit. but we know that there is somebody who visited him recently who is hoping that he is still going to have a second term. what can you tell us? >> reporter: yeah, that would be mike lindell, the ceo of my pillow who is someone who is pretty close to president trump. and he was photographed heading into the white house yesterday with notes, about suggestions that he gave president trump behind closed-doors in a meeting. among what lindell said he told the president was evidence of voter fraud. that's what lindell claims. of course, there's been no evidence of widespread voter
4:06 am
fraud presented since election day. nonetheless, it gives you insight as to what trump is discussing as he waits in the last four days of his presidency to tick by. vice president mike pence has been filling a lot of public-facing duties at this time. and frankly is acting more presidential than president trump at this moment. pence on thursday called to be his soon to-be successor, vice president-elect kamala harris and offered assistance. and also hosted a briefing at fema. on the importance of keeping the nation's capitol safe on election day. that's something we haven't heard from trump. and cnn is reporting that pence was upset with the way trump handled the events on january 6th and there's clearly discomfort among administration officials about that day. house secretary alexa czar submitted his resignation letter this week, and in it, he
4:07 am
criticized the way trump handled that insurrection, i want to read you part of that letter. "unfortunately, the actions in rhetoric following the election especially this last week threaten the history legacy of the administration. he goes on to say it's an assault on democracy on the peaceful transitions of power that the united states of america first brought to the world." azar will staying on through the 20th, biden's inauguration day. that's not the case for everyone. white house press secretary kayleigh mcenany has completed her last day. her deputy also left, so the white house press shop very empty during the last few days of trump's presidency as he prepares to leave office, victor and christi. >> thank you, sarah westwood at the white house for us. now, there is still no time line as to when president trump's second impeachment trial might start. house speaker nancy pelosi is expected to send that lone
4:08 am
impeachment partial to the senate next week. let's talk to constitutional attorney here page pate. >> christi, it's up to the senate how they start the trial. the trial has to happen but the constitution does not set any specific date or time limit. and it's really up to the senate. with the senate changing hands and we're going to have a new majority leader, i know there's attention between the leadership that want president biden's agenda to be fully addressed before they get distracted by an impeachment trial. so there's going to be a lot of back and forth, perhaps they're going to bifurcate the senate, have part of them listening on the trial, part of them listening on the agenda. it's going to be one of the most
4:09 am
important issues that the new senate will face. >> and the president's attorney has and how much does that hold, is there truth to that or a gray area? >> there is a gray area, christi, it's not just deschowitz. the constitution sets up impeachment as pay way to remove someone from office. the argument is pretty simple, if the president is already gone, if his term is already ended then you can't impeach him, he's gone. but really, we have seen impeachment used in the past, in our history, for people who have already left office. we've already had president impeached by the house of representatives. so the only thing that's remaining is the trial. so, i think the better argument, and one that's supported by history is that you can have an impeachment trial, even after the president has left office. >> based on precedent. so an abc news/"washington post"
4:10 am
poll finds more than half of america, about 56% of americans who were polled do feel that congress needs to remove trump from office and disqualify him from holding elected office in the future. the intention here, at this point now, with only 4 days, 4 1/2 days to go before inauguration day and president-elect biden comes in any way, it seems like the intention is to make sure he cannot run for office again. is impeachment the only avenue by which congress has to try to make that -- to try to solidify that? >> yes, it is. so, i think impeachment is important to disqualify trump from holding federal office again. and it's also important, i think, to send a message that congress and the american people will not tolerate the kind of actions that president trump has been taking recently. and really, in the past. and needs to send a message. because if impeachment's going to mean anything, then congress has to be able to move forward,
4:11 am
courageously move forward, and impeach a president who has broken the law. so, i think it's important for the disqualification, but also for the principle involved. >> okay. i want to ask you before i let you go about the potential of self-pardons here. the president still has four days to make this happen. i get this pick in my head of the president just going to the oval office and signing it and going, oh! all right, it's done, that's it. i'm wondering what constitutional parameters are there, are in place, to guide the validity or the lack thereof, of this happening? >> nothing. i mean, that's the short answer. nobody can stop president trump from pardoning himself. the question becomes will that pardon be enforceable? and that's going to be a tough call, not just legally but politically. will a biden administration want to take the politically dangerous step of trying to prosecute a former president trump. i don't think they're going to
4:12 am
do that because, given the distractions and the uncertainty, but i do believe if trump pardons himself that will make it more likely he's prosecuted, not less. because then i think the biden administration will feel the necessity to challenge the idea that a president can pardon himself and make himself above the law. so, i think if he tries to self-pardon, he's more likely to get prosecuted, not less. >> all right. and set a precedent, any way it goes. page pate, we appreciate you so much. thank you. >> thank you, christi. >> good to see you this morning. tonight, be sure to join cnn's anderson cooper for a special report on the capitol insurrection. he's going to take an in-depth look at the people who pulled off. who are they? where are they now? "the faces of the trump insurrection" tonight at 10:00. remember when the trump administration said releasing
4:13 am
vaccine doses could help boost the slow rollout? yeah. turns out the stockpile no longer exists. and now we're hearing from the governors who were waiting for those vials. oh yeah. i think i might get a quote. not again! aah, come on rice. do your thing. only pay for what you need. ♪ liberty. liberty. liberty. liberty. ♪ to be honest...a little dust? it never bothered me. until i found out what it actually was. dust mite droppings? ewww. dead skin cells? gross! so now, i grab my swiffer heavy duty sweeper and dusters. dusters extends to 6 feet to reach way up high... to grab, trap and lock away gross dust. nice! for dust on my floors, i switch to sweeper. the heavy duty cloths reach deep in grooves to grab, trap and lock dust bunnies... no matter where they hide.

4:17 am
there's a new projection from the team at the university of washington. that's the one that creates the coronavirus models that are used by the white house. nearly 567,000 people dead because of covid-19 by may 1st. that's their number. they expect the pandemic to peak in february. but they say more rapid vaccination efforts can bring that number down. >> yeah. despite more than 31 million doses that have been distributed thus far, actual shots in arms, only number 12 million. and now we're learning those reserve shots that we heard so much about, that so many people could hope to be released to boost that rate, well, they don't exist. and governors are really upset about it. >> it is not debatable that the
4:18 am
united states did this more poorly than any nation on earth. they were lying. they don't have any doses held back. >> let me be very clear, this is deception on a national scale. >> what we really need is a new administration. we need president biden, secretary becerra to restore some confidence and sanity in this to figure out what the hell is going on. and if they have extra doses to get them out. >> and adding to the urgency, the warning from the cdc, the new variant, particularly the one in uk, threatens the numbers in march. dr. roy davidson had this wish list for the incoming administration's covid-19 response team. >> system of testing is still broken in the states that there are far too many cases happening to be able to test and trace, that we have health departments
4:19 am
have been disinvested for decades that can't keep up with the need to vaccinate and test. we need a doubling of the efforts to fund those state and local health departments. and, frankly, i just need them to speak with one voice. an entire government voice, telling people to wear masks, to stay home. i understand people are going to resist. but i think if we have one message coming out, that is going to at least get those folks who are listening, who are receptive to do the right things and to protect people. >> well, the reality of the pandemic in california is especially grim. los angeles county alone is getting close to 1 million total coronavirus cases. hospitals and morgues are at capacity. and this is a startling statistic. one person dies every six minutes. >> the state's governor is pointing out there are signs of -- and i'm quoting here -- light at the end of the tunnel.
4:20 am
here's cnn's paul vercammen. >> reporter: victor, christi, finally some good news in the covid-19 center in california. two mega covid-19 vaccination sites now open. one in disneyland. one here in dodger stadium. they open as southern california is feeling the ravages of holiday get togethers and events. two signs of this, on the mortuary grounds a freezer truck filled with bodies because there's not enough room inside the funeral homes. and hospital treating patients overwhelmed inside a gift shop. but here at dodger stadium they began the vaccinations. health care workers driving through. they started with an effort of vaccinating 2,000 on the first day. they ramped that up to 4,000 it was going so well. so this is a reason for optimism for the organizers. >> but at the same time, it's when we see the folks actually getting those vaccines out into
4:21 am
their arms, it's -- it's all those things kind of fade away. >> reporter: the goal here at dodger stadium is vaccinate 12,000 people a day. they say they have enough of a vaccine to last themselves until wednesday. they're not sure if the supply will continue. and they've heard the reports about the supply shrinking fast. but they say they're going to dig in and keep putting needles in the arms here at dodger stadium. reporting from los angeles, i'm paul vercammen, now back to you, christi, victor. >> thank you so much. more than 10 million people here in the u.s. have been vaccinated against covid-19. among the latest one living legend of american music. country king willie nelson he got a shot at a drivethru facility in texas. he's 87 years old. he shared with get your shot. take care of yourself. now it's more than 1 million people in texas who received

their first dose of the vaccination at this point. >> good for willie. so, the president has kept fact-checkers busy over the past four years from mexico paying for the wall. you know, the election claims. coming up, we've got the number of false or misleading claims from the president. that's right, the gum balls are back. sofi made it so easy to pay off my student loan debt. they were able to give me a personal loan so i could pay off all of my credit cards. i got my mortgage through sofi and the whole process was so easy. ♪ express yourself ♪ ♪ ♪ express yourself ♪ ♪ ♪ express yourself ♪ honey honey? new nyquil severe honey is maximum strength cold and flu medicine

4:25 am
4:26 am
here's one of them. now, if you watch our show regularly, then you know why i have this. a jar of gum balls. if you don't, let's get you caught up. do you remember this party game at kids' birthdays and baby showers there's a big jar of candy. everyone guesses how many piece are in the jar.
4:27 am
i'd stare and guess it on size and shape. it really is a guess. the person who gets closest wins a car. according to the fact checker "washington post" president trump has made 1,950 false and misleading statements since january 19th, election day. that's stunning but also hard to grasp. so, i thought how do i make something conceptual like a false statement concrete, tangible. then i think remembered that game i hated as a kid. the jar of gum balls. 1,950, i know, because i put them there. 3,001 false claims. 6420 gum balls. 7546. 9014. 15413. we're now up to 28 jars. so, the team at the "washington post" is still working through the latest torrent of false claims.
4:28 am
but just before the election, they found in 2017, trump's first year as president, he averaged six false or misleading claims a day. that jumps to 16 in 2018. 22 in 2019. at that point in 2020, the president averaged 27 false or misleading claims a day. now, at that pace, the president would have surely exceeded, they said, 25,000 claims before election day. and here's what that looks like. 25,000 false and misleading claims in 67 jars. now. we have to switch up the jars because the original jar was discontinued. but this is it. 25,000, i know because i counted every one myself. and yes, it's sure, it's easy to smirk at because it's candy. i get it. but the point is to show the mass of the deception and the lies that this president, the president of the united states,
4:29 am
has just flung at you for four years. >> we have the biggest audience in the history of inaugural speeches. [ inaudible question ]. >> they come in and buy i lottery. they give us our worst people. they put them in a bin. but in his hand when he's picking them is really the worst of the worst. congratulations you're going to the united states. >> you just got one of the biggest pay raises you've ever received. >> you haven't gotten one in more than ten years. >> if you have a windmill anywhere near your house, congratulations your house just went down 75% in value. and they say the noise causes cancer. >> it would take you to billions and billions of dollars in tariffs from china. >> anybody that needs a test gets a test. >> it's a little like the regular flu that we have flu shots for. and we'll essentially have a flu shot for this in a fairly quick matter. >> veterans choice, veterans
4:30 am
accountability, and they've been trying to get that passed for decades and decades and decades. and no president's been able to do it, we got it done. >> when trees fall down after a short period of time, 18 months they become very dry. they become really like a match stick. you know -- there's no more water pouring through. and they become very, very -- they just explode. >> with me now is glenn kessler, editor and chief writer at the "washington post" fact checker. glenn, good morning to you. i thought trying to see how president trump compared itself. but let me start with what does it take to fact-check this president and all of the speeches and interviews when there's so much? >> well, it's taken a lot of long nights and weekends. the torrent of false claims just
4:31 am
before the election was astonishing. he's now over 30,000. and the -- and it took him just five months to go from 20,000 to 30,000. so it was truly quite a traffic for me and my staff to get to the final point where we are right now. >> you know, he didn't tell these alone. i think the clearest example is what we're seeing now, with this -- with this claim that he won the election. or the democrats stole it. and the more than 120 members of congress who backed the texas lawsuit. and those in the senate who backed the objections. when do you expect the residue of this period, this strategy of just outright deception will be? spin is not new. but just flat out lies. what do you expect that will mean for washington and for the country? >> well, it's interesting, i mean, you know, ultimately, trump lost re-election.
4:32 am
so, you know, politicians didn't want to try to replicate this level of lying. might look at him and say, you know, it didn't work for him in the end. we found that he started to make more false or misleading statements when he felt cornered. or when he felt in trouble. just like before the 2018 election when the republicans lost the house. just before this election, when he lost re-election. but, you know, certainly, what you've seen in the last couple, few months, virtually all he talked about was his alleged election fraud. 75% of the false or misleading claims since the election have only been about the election. and he's certainly convinced a fair number of republicans that he was telling the truth. and that's pretty disturbing because he lost just about every case in court. justifies, you know, ridiculed and said, none of this makes any sense. so, and now you see the
4:33 am
consequences of it. where a group of people raided the capitol because they believe what the president said. >> we talked a few times over the years. and we've talked about the distinction that you make and "the post" makes about calling these false and misleading statements, instead of lies. the last time we spoke there was just one lie. that you identified. and that was that he did not know the source of the money to pay stormy daniels. are there others that are now identified as lies? >> well, we're certainly calling the election claims lies. i mean, the issue always with lie is, you know, you have to get into someone's head and determine whether or not they actually believe what they are saying. and we did create a category called bottomless pinocchio where we identified time where is he said things over and over, scores of times, even though it had been fact-checked as false.
4:34 am
that's as close we got to a lie. there are about 56 of those right now. certainly in the case of the election, he may have convinced himself that he really won. it's really hard to tell with him. he lives often in his own alternative reality. we just found that the word "lie" was a bit of a conversation stopper. you know, clearly, when people -- you know, raid the capitol based on something that is totally and completely false as affirmed by judges across the country, you can call that a lie. >> yeah. let me ask you about the president-elect. he made a lot of pretty dramatic claims in his speech on thursday, thursday evening. i understand that your team reached out to him, and just compare and contrast the reaction and response you got from the incoming administration to what you've gotten over the last several years. >> well, in the case of
4:35 am
biden/harris transition team, we identified five statements he made. interesting claims, we wanted to know what was the basis for this. within 15 minutes we received citations to those factual statements. and they all checked out. generally, in a trump white house almost never responded to our inquiries because a lot of what the president said could not be defended or explained in terms where he got these so-called facts. i assume biden -- five years of obama and i assume the biden presidency will be a lot like the obama presidency in that they will be responsive and be able to quickly back up what they're saying. and occasionally, the president will go off kilter, particularly when he's speaking extemporaneously and not following something that's previously been fact-checked. >> 30,000 false and misleading claims in four years.
4:36 am
glenn kessler, thank you so much for what you and your team there at the "post" do they're not just the last four years but years beyond that. and thank you for your time this morning. >> you're welcome. >> all right. christi. so, the u.s. capitol being fortified ahead of president-elect joe biden's inauguration. trying to make sure what happened ten days ago can't happen again. another way to prevent another riot, of course, is prosecuting the people who were responsible. and investigators are working really hard right now to find out how security went so wrong that way. here's cnn's ryan nobles. >> reporter: house speaker nancy pelosi still dealing with the fallout from the ryeiots that tk place. she announced that she's going to ask russel honore, a general who came in when things fell apart in new orleans. to look into the questions what
4:37 am
exactly went wrong when it comes to security that day. the speaker being asked by a number of her members to appoint an independent commission and a variety of other things. this is the first step that the speaker plans to take. now, this comes against the backdrop of impeachment proceedings that took place this week. house democrats with a handful of republicans impeaching president trump for a second time. and nancy pelosi expecting to send those to the senate sometime next week. and it appears it won't be in the senate until after the hands of the democrats. and the question remains will there be enough republicans to join with the democrats to ultimately convict president trump. the current majority leader mitch mcconnell who won't be for much longer could hold the keys and something we may not get an answer to until after the
4:38 am
inauguration is in the rear view mirror. ryan nobles, cnn, washington. we're now hearing from some of the officers who were attacked by the mob at the capitol a couple of weeks back. >> i was just, you know, trying to fight as best i could. i remember like guys were stripping me of my gear. these rioters, pulling my badge off my chest. they ripped my radio. off of my vest. started pulling like ammunition magazines from their holder on my belt. and some guy started getting ahold of my gun. and they were screaming out, you know, "kill him with his own gun." it was just like the sheer number of rioters. i mean, the force that was coming from, you know, from that side. it was difficult to offer any resistance when you're only about 30 guys going up against 15,000. a lot of people have asked me,
4:39 am
you know, my thoughts on the individuals in the crowd that, you know, that helped me, or tried to offer some assistance. and i think kind of the conclusion i've come to is like, you know, thank you, but [ bleep ] for being there. >> officer fanone said he tried to appeal to the mob's humanity you by yelling, look, i've got kids. when he did that, he said a smaller group of people formed a circle around him and protected him. he also reports seeing rioters use weapons and batons and tear gas which he believes they took from police officers. we, of course, have more on what's happening in the aftermath after we follow that. and even before vice president-elect kamala harris's journey from california to washington was a mist historic .
