3:00 am
and welcome to your "new day." i'm boris sanchez. >> i'm christi paul. the fbi releases the new classified document on its investigation into the september 11th terror attacks. what we're learning about who may have helped at least two of the hijackers. plus, the u.s. capitol police is recommending disciplinary action in six cases against its own officers following the january 6th attack on the capitol. what we know about those cases and the concerns surrounding another rally planned for this week. >> we got double, at least double the requests for assistance since sb 8 has passed. >> abortion rights advocates in
3:01 am
texas are going door-to-door to help women afraid to seek out their help following a restrictive new law banning abortions after six weeks. why they say the new law endangers women. >> this is, like, my first game. i get it to go on campus. i am so excited. plus, fans are back in the stands. how colleges and the nfl are handling the kickoff of a new season amid the pandemic . welcome to sunday. it is the 12th of september. we are so grateful to have your company. hi, boris. >> good morning, christi. thrilled you are with us. we start with the declassification of this new fbi document. it's part of the investigation into the september 11th terror attacks 20 years after the
3:02 am
horrific events of that day. and this document details the investigation into whether a saudi official and a suspected saudi intelligence officer provided support for two of the 9/11 hijackers. >> this is the first of several documents that are expected to be released under an executive order signed by president biden. family members of those killed on 9/11 have demanded the information be made public. cnn international diplomatic editor nic robertson live from kabul, afghanistan. what do we know about this document and what stands out to you, nick? >> reporter: the families are saying that they think that there is a trove of useful information while they, you know, you are disappointed so much of it is redacted. they feel this gives new evidence of saudi government involvement of course that was part of the mystery here. omar, who was suspected by the fbi of being a saudi agent, of
3:03 am
working for the saudi government, funneling money for the saudi government for two of the suspects who were aboard the flight that flew into the pentagon, they traveled to los angeles from asia. they were not speaking english very well. according to the fbi in this newly lee leased document, thepd them with translation, travel, assistance, lodging and financing. now, the saudi government all along has insisted he was not an agent of theirs. he wasn't working for the government. he wasn't involved for them. wednesday the saudi embassy in d.c. said they welcomed in new released report with adding further clarifications. very haven't heard yet back from saudi sources now this document is published precisely what they
3:04 am
think about it and what they think about how this moves the case forward, but certainly this huge pressure that's come from the families to have more information that could allow them to get financial or other redress from the saudi government is going to be the key part of the focus. and bayoumi's role and the details from the fbi despite much redaction lend more information to and credibility to the understanding that he did have connections with the saudi government again. still not entirely clear the precise nature. >> okay. nic robertson, so appreciate it. thank you. so the release of these documents come as communities across the country paused yesterday to honor the nearly 3,000 people killed in the 9/11 terror attacks. >> here's cnn's paolo sandoval. >> reporter: at dawn the unfurling of a flag over the
3:05 am
sight of the pentagon hit by a jetliner 20 years ago signaled the beginning of a day of tributes. ♪ >> reporter: it's one of three sites where americans gathered in sommer remembrance, honeering each one of the 2977 people killed in the terrorist attacks on september 11th. at the footprints where the twin towers stood over manhattan president biden and the first lady were joined by the obamas in a sea of 9/11 families to memorialize those lost two decades ago. at 8:46 a.m. the first of six moments of silence marking the instant the first hijacked airliner struck the north tower. sara was a flight attendant on that plane. >> we redrcite the names of tho we lost, that memory goes back to that terrible day when it felt like an evil spector had descended on our world.
3:06 am
it was also a time when many people acted above and beyond the ordinary. >> reporter: the tributes continued throughout the morning with the nation pausing five more times. the moment each tag win tower f, the moment the pentagon was attacked. >> it truly an honor to be with all of you at this field of honor. >> reporter: along with vice president kamala harris, president george w. bush who served as commander in chief in 2001 led a memorial at the site. the 33 passengers and seven crew of flight 93 could have been any group of citizens selected by fate. in a sense, they stood in for us all. the terrorists soon discovered that a random group of americans is an exceptional group of people. >> reporter: at the pentagon, general mark milley, chairman of the joint chiefs, honored the victims of the attack and service members who died at the subject war in afghanistan. >> never forget those who were
3:07 am
murdered by terrorists. never forget those who rushed to save their lives and gave theirs in exchange. never forget the sons and the daughters, the brothers and sisters and mothers and fathers who gave their tomorrows for our todays. >> reporter: the sky over lower manhattan lights up again with the annual tribute and light a reminder of the nation's resilience and iconic symbol honoring those who were killed and the nation's unbreakable spirit. >> thank you. now, the anniversary of the september 11th terror attack comes two weeks after the last u.s. troops left afghanistan and president biden it defending his handling of that withdrawal even as he had to pay -- chose, of course, to pay tribute to the people who died on 9/11. >> cnn white house reporter jasmine wright joins us live from wilmington, delaware. she is traveling with the
3:08 am
president. president biden is trying to move beyond afghanistan but he is facing questions and criticism. how he is responding? >> reporter: that's right, boris. the president made the case yesterday once again that the u.s. was in that war for too long. look, the white house had intended for the message on september 11th to focus on the lives lost, but again instead those questions about the chaotic afghanistan withdrawal really followed the president. now, he went to the trio of memorial sites as we just heard from paolo starting in new york, going to pennsylvania and then ending in pentagon right outside of d.c., really trying to focus the message on their calls for unity and their calls to focus on the threats of the future. but while visiting the fire department, that was first on the scene of that united 93 crash in that rural field in shanksville, pennsylvania, president biden once again had to defend his decision.
3:09 am
take a listen. >> 70% of the american people think it was time to get out of afghanistan spending all that money. the flip is, they don't like the way we got out. but it's hard to explain to anybody. how else could you get out? we pulled up a c-130 and said we are going to, you know, let anybody who was involved with being sympathetic to us to get in a plane. you would have people hanging in the wheel well. >> reporter: but the fact is, boris and christi, those images that president biden just described, people falling from wheel wells, that's exactly what you saw at the kabul airport during this exit. and now defense secretary lloyd austin defended the administration yesterday when talking to our own wolf blitzer. he made the case that, yes, it would be more difficult to biffle assess the threat and monitor the threat in afghanistan now that they were
3:10 am
no longer bots on the ground but not impossible. remember this is an administration that spent the last two weeks since that exit trying to focus on domestic issues. we saw president biden turning the focus to his infrastructure package, to that 3.5 social spending package, $3.5 trillion social spending package. to him mandating new things, trying to get past the pandemic. and so if yesterday was meant to be a bookend on afghanistan, there is no doubt that there are certainly still questions about the administration's exit. boris, christi. >> jasmine wright, thank you. so, obviously, the taliban back in power in afghanistan, but the key question that remains is whether the country is going to once again become a haven for terrorists. >> yeah, and we heard jasmine reference defense secretary
3:11 am
lloyd austin. cnn's wolf blitzer talked to him and asked him two questions. one, is the u.s. safer, and two, what was accomplished in the ceo's longest war? here is how the secretary responded. >> we went there to go after the people who attacked america and to hold them accountable. we held bin laden accountable. we significantly degraded the al qaeda network and i would point to you the fact that no one has attacked the united states and especially from that region in 20 years. that's not an accident. >> is the united states safer today than it was 20 years ago? >> wolf, i think if you look at the fact that our capabilities are greatly increased from what we had 20 years ago, if you look at the fact that the way that we
3:12 am
operate in the interagency is far beyond what we would have ever imagined 20 years ago, i think we are safer all together. yes. >> and as jasmine alluded to a moment ago, secretary austin says even though the united states no longer has a presence in afghanistan, that, quote, we have a robust capability in the region. still ahead, u.s. capitol police announcing disciplinary action for some officers who were working on january 6th for actions like improper sharing of information. what that means and the latest in their internal investigation next. also, new cdc data quantifies the risk of staying unvaccinated such as how much more likely are you to be hospitalized with covid-19 if you have not been. that's still ahead.

eight months after rioters stormed the u.s. capitol officials are recommending disciplinary action in six cases against capitol police officers after internal investigations into what happened on january 6th. >> six officers were suspended with pay. 29 others were placed under investigation back in february for their actions during the insurrection. here is cnn's daniella diaz joining us from capitol hill now. good to see you this morning. detail what we know about these cases. >> we know that capitol investigators have recommended disciplinary action against six police officers for what they did during the january 6th riot at the capitol. look, this is what this investigation determined. it found that three officers were singled out for unbecoming conduct. one officer for failure to comply with directives. one officer for improper remarks. one officer for improper dissemination of information. the capitol police released the
3:18 am
statement late last night. they didn't actually include any details about who those officers were and details about the recommended disciplinary action. but they also said there would be no criminal charges filed as the u.s. attorney's office did not find sufficient evidence to do so. so, look, this investigation was actually conducted by the office of professional responsibility and as y'all said it covers 38 investigations but investigators weren't able to identify 12 of those officers involved in these cases. and capitol police also said that one investigation into an identified official who was, quote, accused of unsatisfactory performance in conduct unbecoming still remains open. now, if y'all remember, you know, there is countless videos of -- that reveal what some of these officers did during the capitol attack. some of these officers, of course, defended -- most of
3:19 am
these officers defended the capitol. some videos reveal that these officers, you know, were aiding some of the capitol rioters and being lenient with them. but it's unclear who these officers were and none of the names were released. but capitol police defended most of capitol police officers' actions that day. they said in their statement last night that the capitol police is committed to accountability when officers fail to meet standard governs by the u.s. capitol police policies and the congressional community's expectations and said the violations should not diminish the heroic efforts of the officers that day. we got some insight into what the capitol police is doing to remedies plinary actions against these officers who did not aid in defending the capitol that day. boris, christi. >> still a lot of questions to answer regarding these investigations and still a lot of footage out there, daniella, that has not reviewed by
3:20 am
investigators. daniella diaz live from capitol hill. thank you. so yesterday former president george w. bush alluded to the capitol hill riots in fact when he was condemning violent extremism. >> president bush was speaking from shanksville, pennsylvania, the crash site of flight 93. he called on americans to confront domestic extremists, comparing them to violent extremists in other countries. listen. >> there is little cultural overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home. but then there is disdainful pluralism in their disregard for human life, in their determination to defile national symbols. they are children of the same foul spirit and it is our continuing duty to confront them. . >> notably, one of the capitol rioters who threatened to kill speaker of the house nancy pelosi has pled guilty.
3:21 am
>> he drove from colorado to washington with two guns and 2,500 rounds of ammunition. in text messages he threatened to kill speaker pelosi on live tv. the charge carries a maximum potential prison term of five years. prosecutors say they will ask for as much as just two, but a cnn analysis has found about 10% of the defendants charged in connection with the deadly riot have reached plea agreements at this point. up next, college football, it's back and have you noticed the packed stadiums? a lot of schools are not mandating those masks or vaccines. we have a doctor weighing in. stay close. i wonder how the firm's doing without its fearless leader. you sure you want to leave that all behind? yeah. stay restless with the rx. crafted by lexus. experience amazing at your lexus dealer. ♪ ♪ life is full of unexpected surprises. for your first day of school. but other times, it helps knowing what to expect.

3:26 am
unvaccinated covid-19 patients that are putting a major strain on the nation's hospitals. >> the cdc data shows people who are not vaccinated were ten times more likely to be hospitalized from coronavirus than people still gathering regardless of vaccination status many times without masks. in fact, over the weekend football stadiums across the country were packed with thousands of fans. unlikely -- unlike last season, we should point out. many are foregoing covid-19 restrictions. nadia romero has more for us. >> reporter: the nfl kicking off its season this week. and if there is an outbreak among unvaccinated players, teams may have to forfeit a game. college football is back on the campus of the university of georgia. uga is run by a board of regents that won't allow masks or vaccine mandates. >> i wear my mask in class and everything. a lot of my teachers, like, are
3:27 am
requesting that we do, but they can't really enforce it. so it's on and off. it depends on the class. >> reporter: in the heart of s.e.c. country it feels like 2019 not. covid protocols really at all. no masks or vaccine mandates. its up to the fans to decide. and some students tolell me the don't want to talk about covid at all. >> we don't want to talk about it. we are done with the covid talk. we are ready to be over with it. >> reporter: lsu remains the only s.e.c. school to require negative covid-19 tests or vaccine to watch game in its stadium. the battle continues in florida between some school districts fighting to enforce mask mandates against the governor's orders. >> the long-term benefit of doing the right thing absolutely outweighs the short-term fear of the consequences, particularly when we're talking about salaries. and the administration has taken proactive measures that should
3:28 am
that be the case, those funds can be replenished. >> reporter: in kentucky -- >> i want to go home. but i can't go home because i can't breathe still. >> reporter: unvaccinated billy fights covid-19 as the state's general assembly overrode the governor's veto. no school mask mandates. >> i do believe that endangers kids. my hope is every superintendent makes the right decision. >> reporter: on monday at least seven k through 12 schools in the atlanta area back to remote learning after a spike in covid cases. it's not just humans in danger. at the atlanta zoo some gorillas have tested positive for traces of the virus. >> thanks for that report. let's bring in primary e care physician dr. matthew. appreciate your expertise. what do you think when you see all those young people and fans
3:29 am
packing football stadiums as was noted in the report, a lot of these schools not requiring vaccines. what comes to your mind? >> you know, i'll tell you what, boris. we've seen this happen over and over again and i can't imagine that when this virus is raging as it is right now, let's remember compared to last year post-labor day, our viral counts are much higher. we have over 1,000 people dying every day. look at this, boris. my laminated cdc vaccination card. i have used it one time when i went to paris two months ago. i should be using it like a driver's license to get in sports stadiums and restaurants. that's what they are using in paris, using a qr code. plus, as president biden mentioned, yes, mandatory vaccines may be difficult and private organizations, but we are not also mandating masking. so lots of different issues come to my mind. but the most important thing with those stadiums filled with
3:30 am
a lot of people is give it a couple of weeks. so many people will fall sick. unfortunately, a good number of them could potentially die as well. >> so, dr. matthew, i wanted to ask you about what you noted regarding president biden. a few days ago he announced he would institute new vaccine rules, vaccine and testing mandates for companies with over 100 employees on top of requiring vaccinations for federal workers and members of the military. i'm sure you have seen on social media people calling the president a dictator over these moves. what do you say to those who argue this is a step towards thor ternism? >> i would say that enough is enough, boris. i'm tired of seeing 30 and 40-year-old young men dying and leaving their wives and kids behind. you know, the whole mandating of vaccines is the only option moving forward. i remember talking to you about this, you know, two or three months ago and people were rolling their eyes at me on social media and twitter saying,
3:31 am
what do you mean we should be mandating vaccines? we have tried everything else, boris. we have tried to bribe. we have tried to, you know, give incentives to people as employees. nothing has worked. and the only way moving forward is to mandate vaccines. regarding the 100 employees or more, i know it will be difficult if you are not a federal employee to mandate vaccines, but we should be mandating masks as well because if you are walking around without a mask and you test positive on friday, you have potentially exposed a lot of employees. >> yeah. and on twitter, doctor, you said that you think that the faa should require commercial airline passengers to also show proof of vaccination. make the case. what impact would that have on covid case rates? >> i think it would have a significant impact. let's think about this for a second, boris. even during some of the biggest surges in the u.s. we have had millions of people traveling. that sector of america continues
3:32 am
to flourish, if you will. people are traveling regardless of whether the surges are high or low. so if you have got a captive audience, why can't we mandate vaccines so travel is even safer? remember, it's not air travel as much as being in crowded spaces and tight spaces. so i think president biden needs to look into his authority over faa. what about also requiring pilots, flight attendants and also the tsa employees that are basically amongst so many millions of people at the airport? so i definitely think that would be one way to get the vaccination rate up high very quickly. >> we have to leave the conversation there. dr. matthew, thank you for the time. >> yeah, thanks. across the country many hospitals have been forced to ration care and now some are requesting whether medical professionals should give priority to vaccinated patients
3:33 am
leaving the unvaccinated as a low priority. next hour we are going to pose that question to an expert on medical ethics. also up next, since texas abortion restriction law went into place, women are now looking for other options. we hear from some of the providers trying to help. incomparable design makes it beautiful. state of the art technology makes it brilliant. the lexus nx. experience the crossover in its most visionary form. experience amazing at your lexus dealer. the dove beauty bar makes my skin feel fresh. i've encouraged serena my best friend to switch. feels moisturized and clean. my friend stefanie, her skin was dry. i'm like girl you better get you some dove. she hooked me up. with a quarter moisturising cream, dove cleans effectively and cares beautifully.

never happened. they might have been fine seeing him out. picture. trump derives his power from being an outsider. so the message that he was communicating yesterday was that he is not a part of the president's club. he is actually portraying himself more as a president in exile, you know, someone who is often the side -- off on the side waiting to take power back. when he was speaking with police and fire officials taking pictures with him yesterday, he was talking about the election. he was reacting to people who were saying it was rigged. so this never-ending big lie story is something that didn't even get a break during the 9/11 ceremonies yesterday. of course, last night he is out in florida. he is doing an emcee sort of job providing color commentary during a boxing match. this was on pay-per-view, you know, it created outrage among some liberals in the days leading up to 9/11. it didn't get a lot of attention
3:50 am
on social media. trump's commentary was pretty boring and vague according to critics to actually watched. so it's this really, you know, strange moment we are in. i was talking with students at georgetown this week where i'm starting a fellowship. i said i feel like we are in the eye of a trump hurricane. it can be calm right now, you might forget anything's going on you might see the sunlight, but the hurricane is still raging. tr trump is claiming he won, the election is going to be decertified and we are not through the storm yet. in some ways i think his handling. 9/11 anniversary, attacking biden, not going to the official events, having a boxing match, it reaffirms we are in the middle of some kind of political storm. >> it is so strange. brian stelter, we are so grateful for you. thank you. >> thanks, brian. don't miss more of this conversation later today. brian is going to be hosting "reliable sources." it starts at 11:00 a.m. right here on cnn. up next, worries of significant flooding along the

the gulf coast is still recovering after being battered by hurricane ida. new flooding is of concern right now. it could be on the way because there is a tropical disturbance developing in the gulf of mexico and that could impact the united states as early as today. >> meteorologist allison chinchar joins us live from the cnn weather center to let us know what we can expect. what are you seeing? >> right, we are starting to see that the tropical wave takes hold, in the bay of campeche. what we expect it to do is to begin to strengthen, become better organized here, which means in the next 24 hours this could become our next named storm, which would be nicholas on the list. now, one thing to keep a close eye on is exactly where this goes.
3:58 am
the track, if it takes a little bit more of a westerly track, it's just simply not going to have enough time to strengthen before it makes landfall. however, it takes a easterly track towards houston, for example, it's going to sit over the very warm waters of the gulf of mexico a little bit longer allowing it to strengthen and intensify into a much stronger tropical storm over the next couple of days. but regardless of whether this is named or not, the amount of moisture that's going to be associated with this storm is tremendous. i cannot emphasize enough how much rain is expected to fall between new orleans all the way down to brownsville, texas, over the next several days. it will begin today. you are going to slowly start to see wave after wave continue through the evening hours tonight and into the next couple of days. just through tuesday look at all of the heavy rain right there along the coastline. see it pink color here? this is in excess of 10 inches of rain just through tuesday. the concern is it's going to keep raining wednesday, thursday, and even friday of the
3:59 am
upcoming week. that's why you have excessive flood outlooks not only for today, but also tomorrow. and you start to see those flood outlooks begin to expand into more communities. they will likely expand even more as we go into tuesday and wednesday of the upcoming week. another thing, too, to note is this is only one tropical system we are keeping an eye on right now. look at all of these different waves. there is not one, but five different ones, christi and boris, that we're keeping an eye on out there. nicholas is the next name on the list followed by odette and peter. when we talk about the season, we are pretty far into the list already. peak season was actually friday. so just two days ago. but that doesn't mean the season ends. we are already at 13 named storms. 14 is what you average in an entire season. we may hit that mark later today if nicholas gets named. >> yikes. >> wow. we appreciate it. thank you. next hour of "new day" starts right now.
