tv Early Start With Christine Romans and Laura Jarrett CNN May 10, 2021 2:00am-2:59am PDT
all right. monday is here. welcome to the viewers in the united states and around the world. we're live this morning in jerusalem, london, hong kong, and tokyo. i'm christine romans. >> i'm laura jarrett. this morning a cyber attack on the country's largest fuel pipeline causing an emergency declaration in 7 state -- 17 states and the district of columbia. colonial pipeline took certain systems offline on friday after
learning of the attack trying to contain it. the pipeline carrying more than 100 million gallons of gas and other fuel from houston to new york harbor daily. almost half of the east coast supply. we'll have more in a few minutes. all right. 5:00 a.m. at the top of the hour. another night of clashes in east jerusalem between israeli police and palestinian protesters and new overnight israeli officials temporarily stopped jews from attending a holy site. what is happening there? >> reporter: hundreds of palestinians have been injured in the past few hours during clashes with israeli police. it's the third straight day of violence in jerusalem's holy site where tensions are absolutely boiling here. we've seen multiple video clips of stun grenades being fired into the mosque as well as palestinians throwing rocks at police outside. officials were concerned of what
today would bring after several days of tension. that's partly because today is also what is known as jerusalem day. that's what you see people preparing for behind us. it's when israel marks when it took control of the western wall. in a few hours, expecting a march of tens of thousands of israelis through the old city of jerusalem. as you noted, police said they're preventing nonmuslims from visiting the temple. it's a revered holy site for both jews and muslims. and though police may be hoping that such an act would potentially help calm things down a little bit here, as we're seeing in the past few hours, things are just getting more tense. the situation is really escalading here. we're also seeing some rockets overnight and this morning being fired from gaza. there's a feeling of tension here. it could be a test for the biden administration, though the israeli/palestinian conflict is
not necessarily the highest on the list of foreign priorities now, the situation here cannot be ignored. we're getting more and more com comments condemnation from other countries and international organizations and members of congress. so it is a question of will the biden administration get more involved in the situation? what will they say? there's a lot of concern of what the rest of the day will bring here. >> keep us posted. when can the masks come off inside? dr. fauci believes it's time to start loosening the rules as more people are now vaccinated. the cdc recently relaxed the guy cans on wearing masks outside but recommends masks in public indoor spaces like offices and stores. critics believe that approach is too cautious at a time when more people need incentives to get vaccinated. the "new york times" reports states are turning down hundreds of thousands of vaccine doses as demand drops. pfizer is looking for a full fda
authorization, hoping that will reduce hesitancy and decrease demand. all right. this morning we mentioned that cyber attack on the country's largest fuel pipeline. we have a reporter with us who covers the department of homeland security for cnn. niece to see you this morning. bring us up to speed. >> reporter: good morning. one expert is calling it the most significant, successful attack on the energy sector. cyber attack on the energy sector. one former official telling us the group behind the incident is a group, a criminal group known as dark side. a group originating out of russia. the company, over the weekend, coming out and saying it was an incident of ransom ware but not saying what the demands are. this is a type of malicious code that they have put into the
system asking the company to -- asking the company to hold up their systems in order to threatening -- threatening the company -- national security experts have warned this might be a problem. they have warned we might see these type of attacks on ageing infrastructure. we also mentioned at the top here this emergency declaration 17 states, d.c., as well, if you can still hear me, geneva, what does it mean for the next few days? what does it do? >> reporter: it's the company and the customers in a tough spot. at this point, they're not saying whether or not they have any concerns about fuel prices unless it goes on for a long time. the company is trying to get their systems up and running, which they've started to do over the weekend. they've got some of their smaller pipelines going but the main pipeline is still down. at this point, gas prices are not expected to go up unless
there's a prolonged shut down. but officials have been warning for weeks of the threat of ransom ware and now we're seeing a real world example of this incident. >> yeah. of course the issue on gas prices a big one. thank you so much. i appreciate it. this bombing outside an afghan school killing at least 85, many of them young girls. can the future there be secure as the u.s. pulls out? stay with us.

a heartbreaking scene the families burying their loved ones here. this is what we feared this vacuum of the united states leaving would encourage the insurgents, maybe the taliban who long opposed the education of women. >> reporter: the taliban officially said they were not behind this attack through their twitter account. it's fair to say that one tweet doesn't necessarily encompass all the different strands of extremism and moderation that are part of the taliban insurgent movement after 20 years of war here. it's, i have to say, one of the most shocking attacks i can recall in the 20 years of afghanistan because the number of victims that have risen from initially 25 to 85 confirmed dead, according to the office of the second vice president. but also because many of the victims are schoolgirls. as you mentioned, the taliban insurge si, at times, female education has been abhorrent. they keep slightly modifying
changing their position but many other extremist groups, particularly the brand of isis in afghanistan, fingers have been pointed toward, it's something that is abhorrent. what is shocking the bomb, that first detained placed inside a car went off around 4:00 outside the school just as the girls were leaving their education. these are simply young women trying to get -- girls trying to get a foothold in life. they were hit by one blast and as we tragically saw, and frankly often see in attacks like this, as people ran in to help and investigate, secondary devices went off. to add to that, as well, this is one of the holiest days of the holiest month in the muslim calendar in ramadan. in the days since, we've seen,
of course, condemnation, agony, shock, fears among the particular part of the kabul population. the shiite minority is often targeted by extremists, too. they can't rely on the government to defend themselves. at the same time, too, as you mentioned, this broad general fear that we're seeing a security vacuum open up as the u.s. withdrawals. felt it would be the case but, also, too, an ugly competition between parts of the insurgency to show who is the more hard line and the more psych -- sickening, in our opinions, and we may see more shocking angst in the ahead. >> thank you. still ahead, all bets are off for kentucky derby winner after a failed drug test. five blades and a pivoting flexball designed to get virtually every hair on the first stroke. so you're ready for the day

"early start" continues now. good morning! this is "early start." i'm laura jarrett. >> i'm christine romans. it's 30 minutes past the hour. a criminal group from russia behind a cyber attack that temporarily shut down colonial pipeline, one of america's top gas suppliers. it carries 100 million gallons of gasoline and other fuel each day from houston to new york harbor. analysts worry the shut down could result in a spike in gas prices ahead of the summer travel season. prices already rising before this pipeline shut down. drivers in pennsylvania, illinois, and washington already paying $3 a gallon. it's $4 a gallon in california.
the department of energy, the fbi, department of homeland security all involved in the response here. the department of transportation now says tanker truck drivers will be allowed to work longer hours after a federal emergency was declared for much of the east and gulf coasts. colonial said some of the smaller lines are up and running but the main lines still shut down. it could trigger challenges for jet fuel deliveries. many major east coast airports maintain three to five days of inventory. a pipeline suspension could have direct implications on airports. it shows the threat cyber criminals pose. it's one reason it's a big week for president biden, too. he'll push key priorities that could define his first, including his sprawling infrastructure plan. cnn's jasmine wright is live at the white house. the white house is scrambling
after the pipeline had to be shut down. what you learning? >> reporter: it's a critical week for president biden's economic agenda. white house officials have to divert some of their intention to deal with the fallout of this cyber attack. so we know they launched an interagency working group over the weekend to address some of the concerns and "new york times" is reporting a long time planned executive order to beef up cybersecurity, now people are asking whether or not it's going to be enough. and that would affect fellow agencies and contractors. but if we take a few steps back, right, it comes as president biden is really about to continue his push on this massive $4 trillion infrastructure and jobs package for the first time testing out whether or not he can work with republicans in these high profile oval office meetings taking place this week. on wednesday he'll meet with the big four congressional leaders
including mcconnell and mccarthy. an official tells us it would be the first time that both of those two gentlemen will be in the oval office since president biden took office. these are conversations that are now starting to happen. on wednesday biden offered shelley moore capito to the white house. they'll sit down and talk about infrastructure bills. and the plan not yet a bill. white house officials, i think if you ask them, they don't think anything firm will come of it but will set the precedent whether or not widen -- biden can work with republicans obv -- on a comprise. >> what president biden said he wants to try to find common ground with republicans on his economic ventures that have been bipartisan in the past. building bridges, building roads, connecting people with
broadband, umm, building electric charging stations for roads of the future. all of these things. these shouldn't divide our two political parties. most republicans have given a speech about how we need to fix the bridges, roads, highways, or infrastructure. people stand up and give speeches about how people should have affordable child care. it's basic, basic things that we're putting forward and, again, i think they should have bipartisan support. >> reporter: so to get that support, laura, white house officials have been working the phones. we know an official told us that transportation secretary pete butt buttigieg and the education secretary have been reaching out to lawmakers and governors and mayors on both sides trying to drum up consensus and comprise for the bill. the question going forward is what does comprise look like? now last night in a local interview, mcconnell said that
republicans want comprise and he envisioned that most want somewhere between $600 to $800 billion. again, that falls far short of president biden's $2.3 trillion initial asking price. the question is whether it's enough for the white house. laura? >> all right. jasmine wright live at the white house. thank you so much. it's time for three questions in three minutes. let's bring in cnn correspondent john harwood. for months, the prevailing narrative has been that the president is trying to transform the american economy, but this morning you write the biden's economic agenda isn't quite as transformative as it seems. you take the contrary view. explain yourself >>well, what i'm saying, laura, yes, it's a large plan with very major spending proposals that will affect the lives of americans and effect the status of american infrastructure in substantial ways. however, it is not a
revolutionary plan. we have done many of these things before. we have the child tax credit, for example, which is large and going to people who weren't previous eligible. they didn't have income to claim the credit. this is something that existed for more than two decades. we've invested at higher rates in the past. for example, in the mid 1960s, when we were going to the moon, when we were paying for the great society, building eisenhower's interstate highway program, we invested 6% of the size of the economy in washington's investment and growth in the future. now we are investing under 3%. if we were still investing at 2%, we would be spending about twice as much every year in addition than what joe biden is proposing. so these are things they freedom transformational because they're set against the conservative era of the last 40 years, but they're not dramatic and the tax
increase is falling into that category. the president wants to raise the corporate rate to 28%. it was over 30% for decades before it went down to 21%. the top rate he wants to take to 39.6%. ronald reagan signed the first tax conut down to 50%. >> more historical than transformational. big debates sparked on friday a about the jobs report, which was not as strong as we expected. right. and you're starting to see, i think, it's interesting this talk of a worker shortage. at the same time, you've got all the people in south carolina, arkansas, montana some of the republican governors taking steps to curb the $300 a week in jobless benefits. they said it's discounseloring people going back to work. it took $300 a week for americans earn a living wage. it might be hard to go to the way things were before. what about you, john harwood?
>> well, look, i think we first of all, have to admit we don't know why the jobs report was so bad. >> exactly. >> a lot of people expected us to gain a million jobs. we're scratching our heads to try to figure it out. it's likely a mix of factors, including the safety -- security blanket of the unemployment check, but also fear of the pandemic, lack of child care, other things that make it difficult for people for supply chain issues, as well, where some factories can't open because they don't have microchips. all the things play into why more people didn't go back to work, we think. but what is happening is people on the side of governments doing too much, in some of these red states, they'll seize on the fact it happened to confirm their belief that governments shouldn't have been spending this much money. they want to pull it back and see what happens. this is a once in a century pandemic and the recovery from it is going to unfold at
unpredictable ways. >> yeah. >> john, i want to get your thoughts on politics now. house minority leader kevin mccarthy is officially backing congresswoman stepfanik to take over cheney. they're going to oust one of their own for telling the truth. we're seeing a few republicans step up opposing this. take a listen to maryland governor larry hogan. >> i'm concerned about retaliation from the president. they're concerned about, you know, being attacked within the party and, you know, it just bothers me that you have to swear royalty to the dear leader or you get kicked out of the party. it doesn't make any sense. it's sort of a circular firing squad. we're attacking members of our own party instead of focussing on solving problems. >> congressman adam kinzinger compared the party to the titanic.
is he right? >> well, the republican party is in a difficult place. the irony is they're in a difficult place even though history would tell us they're likely to take back the congress next year. this is a party that is not organized around philosophy or ideas or policies. it is motivated by the fear of a segment of the american population they're being left behind. it's principally blue collar white voters. they're desperate for someone to be their champion. they see donald trump as their champion, but that is a shrinking demographic over time. that's not a winning long-term formula. and the question is when do republicans feel the motivation to change their message, change their approach, to try to reach out to a broader cross section of americans? that's how they're going to grow and thrive in the long run. this is what kinzinger was saying about the titanic. they're getting tighter and tighter organized around this particular group and this particular leader and that is
something that will take them down in the long-term. the question is what is that time frame? if they win the congress next year, history would say they would, they're down a few seats, and almost always the president's party loses seats in a midterm. is that going to motivate them to change? probably not. we have another presidential election in 2024. they've lost the popular vote seven of the last eight times. they haven't gotten the message to change on it yet. >> all right. john, it's great to have you. i appreciate it. all right. now to this. the government watchdog over the u.s. capitol police set to testify that the department lacks important counter surveillance resources which may have hobbled it during the u.s. capitol riot. inspector general michael bolton released a summary of the much-anticipated report. lawmakers will grill him about it later today. lapses in communications intel have an a central focus for members of congress investigating the january 6th
