5:02 am
your company. thanks for being here. >> great to be with you, christi. we start with the omicron variant. pressing u.s. hospitals into crisis mode this morning. several states now relying on national guard personnel to fill the staffing gaps as sick health care workers miss work to recover from the virus. >> the icu beds across the nation are filling up. more than a dozen states are reporting less than 15% capacity left for patients who need it. now, to help stop the spread, the biden administration is planning to make high-quality masks available for free. the cdc is now urging everyone to wear the most protective masks they can find. saying swapping out cloth masks for those n95 masks will offer better protection against the virus. cnn medical analyst dr. leigh went said a cloth mask isn't enough. >> we have known for over a year that the virus is airborne, it's
5:03 am
best if you wear a kn95 or n 95 mask. if you're unable to do that a cloth mask with another underneath that but a single layer cloth mask is just not enough. >> testing for the virus remains a major obstacle for the united states. a white house representative said the united states is moving but not moving fast enough to fix the shortage ahead of time. >> here's the thing, starting in time, a lot of you can get at-home covid tests through your private insurance. >> christi and boris this is. happening right now. most americans with health insurance can now walk into a pharmacy, store or go online and get at-home covid-19 tests for free, through their insurance. how this works depending on your plan, you can get an over-the-counter at-home test at no cost up front or you may get reimbursed. so you may have to still
5:04 am
purchase the test but submit the receipt to the your insurer for that reimbursement. so remember to save those receipts. and another thing, some insurers may set up a preferred network of pharmacy stores or online vendors where you can get your free test. if you purchase a test outside of the network, insurers put reimburse up to $12 a test. and for those who don't have health insurance, the biden administration says it's launching a website on january 19th, where any american can request a free at-home test. the sadministration says it's limiting orders to four rapid tests per household. of course, boris and christi, with the ongoing spread of the omicron variant increasing testing has been a major focus of the white house. back to you. >> and obviously, we're seeing this all over the country. it's not just a case load in hospitals that's so dangerous. facilities are deal with
5:05 am
critical staffing shortages. in california, health care workers who test positive, or are exposed to the virus can now return to work immediately, without isolation or testing. as long as they're asymptomatic and they wear an n95 mask. it's not sitting well with a lot of people on the front lines as you can imagine, in a recent op-ed, kathryn kennedy president of the nurses association writes this. we need more infectious disease controls not more casualties. surging pandemic numbers are warning to strengthen safety measures not weaken them now. these with us, cathy kennedy, cathy, thank you for the work you that do, for all that you've been dealing with in the last couple of years. i wanted to ask your opinion about the fact that, we're hearing so many different things from front line workers. and you're so stressed out. help us understand what you're hearing right now, with this
5:06 am
information from governor newsom? or op-ed in the "sacramento bee" is titled governor newsom is letting hospitals make covid-infected nurses work. that will kill people. is that a sentiment of the front line workers you that know? >> absolutely. you know, we've been at this for the last two years, and so when i heard the news, when i was at work last weekend, you know, i was just amazed. i thought, this is unconscionable. i mean, for them to allow asymptomatic health care workers that even test positive to come to work, wearing an n95, you know, we're guaranteed to cause our patients, visitors and other health care workers to get this virus. and it's just something that never should have happened. you know, we're moving the goalpost, you know, just to fit the needs of the corporations.
5:07 am
to make sure that, you know, their revenues keep coming in. so, this is a problem, not allowing health care workers, registered nurses to quarantine and get well is a problem that is amazing to us, to me. >> so the "l.a. times" is reporting that the california health and human services secretary says this is not a mandate per se, from the governor. that the guidelines or requirements are asking hospitals to rely on this as a last resort. you have all seen so much. do you feel like there are front line workers who feel they will do it, because of the urgency of the situation they're in, even if they don't feel up to the task? >> you know, here's the thing. as a registered nurse, we're there to, you know, make sure that the patients get well. so what we -- we expect the
5:08 am
employer to really make sure that all those protective measures are in place. this is the public health crisis. we're in a pandemic. and it hasn't gone away. i mean, now, we have this highly transmissible variant that's causing so many people to be not only exposed is, but, you know, die. and so, now, you know, to say that asymptomatic health care workers, nurses, even if they test positive, wear an n95 mask and come to work, because we need you. and so, nurses want to take care of patients. they don't want to get sick. and so, they don't want to work in unsafe environments. so, you know, it's a big concern to us. we're exhausted. >> i know. we've heard that, and we see it. and we feel for you because you're saving lives, and yet, you're risking your own health at the same time.
5:09 am
>> absolutely. >> regarding this call to have nurses who are positive come in any way, how do -- do you know how the leadership at many of these hospitals, the executives at hospitals absorbed this news. and do they plan to really utilize it fully? >> you know, we have -- it's out there. and so, the hospital that i work at, again, you know, they're saying if you're asymptomatic, you don't have any symptoms, wear an n95 mask and come on in. the problem with that is, you know, if you're asymptomatic, right, and you come to work, who's to say that all of a sudden while you're working that you do become symptomatic. >> uh-huh. >> then that means you've got to be replaced. you need to go home and who have you exposed? so, really, it doesn't make any sense. you know, weakening these guidance, confusing people is not what we need to do. we need to strengthen them.
5:10 am
making sure that people are vaccinated, boosted. making sure, you know, if you have patients that are under investigation or questionable covid positive, making sure that you're isolating them properly. you know, contact tracing. expand the covid testing. proper quarantining. all of those things, we've been asking for them for two years. two years, you know. >> yeah. >> and here we are. >> you also wrote, and i only have a couple seconds left, but you quote, this is reckless guidance given by a hospital industry focused on maintaining business operations, revenues and profits. what evidence do you see of that? >> well, take a look. you know, a lot of these health care corporations have made billions of dollars, even during the pandemic. so, it's clear, you know, that they are looking at making their profits, instead of making sure that patients are getting the care that they need. you know, health care is a human right.
5:11 am
and it's very important that we -- we have been sounding the alarm for two years. and we will continue to sound the alarm. we're here to make sure that patients are safe. but also nurses and other health care workers have what they need, if they are infected. they need proper quarantining. allow us, them, to get the rest that they need to be healthy and come back to work. >> cathy kennedy, we appreciate all that you all are doing. please note that. we appreciate it. thank you. >> thank you very much. >> of course. >> of course. more than 65 million people ranging from the midwest to the east coast are under winter weather alerts, as a massive storm plows through different parts of the country. many states already preparing for what meteorologists warn could be a crippling ice storm. some regions are going to see rain, snow, sleet, and freezing rain, all in just 24 hours. let's get straight to cnn's
5:12 am
allison chinchar live from the cnn weather center. allison, what are you expecting? >> a pretty widespread storm. i think that's one of the biggest takeaways as to how many states are really going to be impacted by this particular storm. we take a look at where it is now. we started to see that transition from rain over to snow for areas like st. louis, kansas city, and that system is going to continue to push down to the south and east. as it does it's going to bring a lot of colder air with it so you're going to start to see that changeover for a lot of other cities, nashville, knoxville, in towards atlanta. this is where you have the winter weather alerts even an ice storm warning for portions of the carolinas and georgia. it goes to show you how many people are impacted by this particular storm. throughout the day today, the low will dive down deep into the southeast, eventually sliding ever so slowly across the southeast before then shooting back up against the eastern seaboard impacting areas of the mid-atlantic and northeast once we get into sunday and monday. ice is going to be hands down
5:13 am
the biggest concern with the storm. widespread, about a quarter inch. some places could pick up three quarters inch of ice obviously going to cause huge widespread power outages and dangerous road conditions. heavy jest snowboards between nashville and charlotte. the higher elevations could see up to two feet. >> yikes. and it's not just what the storm is going to bring when it's around, but also the next few days, the effects are going to be lingering, right? >> gentlemen, absolutely. yeah. you'll get some melting during the day as temperatures go back up. but then a refreeze at night once the temperatures go back below freezing. >> allison chinchar thank you so much. >> thank you, allison. this morning, firefighters are battling a massive 11-alarm fire in a chlorine manufacturing plant in passaic, new jersey. look at that, miles away, you can see it. the fire also led authorities to issue air quality warnings for
5:14 am
the region. >> cnn's polo sandoval is following it. what's the intensity of the fire? >> reporter: guys, it's about 16 miles east of where the fire is actually burning. folks here advised to basically -- or at least told that they could potentially see and smell the smoke. here in new york city, giving you a sense of how intense the fire was no reports of any injuries thus far. crews on the scene making sure there are no flare-ups. this facility was used to store plastics. you can bring it in for the viewers to see it for themselves. and crews were battling constantly that fire overnight through the cold. this warehouse is run by a company that makes pool treatment products. the mayor saying it's about 100,000 square feet of production sprod. an 11-alarm fire that caused
5:15 am
crews to draft water from a nearby river. i want you to hear from the mayor as they offered an update on social media overnight. >> fire is still raging, we're going to continue to pour water on it. we have confirmed, that it was used for storage of plastic. a portion of the building did have chlorine in it. that seems to be under control at this time. we'll be monitoring that certainly throughout the night but certainly far from having control of the fire. >> checking back to see how much progress they've made, but at this point, you hear that the building was vacant at the time. no reports of major injuries. and the new jersey fire is on scene there. as you heard from the mayor he was recommending to people who live nearby simply shut their windows overnight because they weren't sure whether or not it was actually posing a threat for
5:16 am
neighbors. >> all right, polo sandoval, thanks so much. >> thanks, polo. listen, we're forming breaking news, tsunami advisory for the wet coast after a massive volcano eruption in tonga. the area is now under advisory, what you know about it. and the u.s. is saying it has information that russia is preparing a false attack for ukraine. we'll tell you how putin is responding to that, next. more brain performance? yes, please! neuriva. think bigger. this is a warrior. midnight to morning, she's in command. all-day comfort. all-night shift. head nurse. heart on her sleeve. so, when leaks show up, our protection helps keep them dry. depend. the only thing stronger than us, is you.™ (vo) subaru and our retailers volunteer and support charities all year long.

5:20 am
breaking now into the cnn newsroom, the western u.s. coast under a tsunami advisory. this is after a tsunami hit tonga's largest island and reportedly sent waves flooding into the capital. take a look at this video, you can see waves coming in, inundating the coastline. this happening after an underwater volcano in the south
5:21 am
pacific exploded in a violent eruption. you can see as the waves get into some parts of the tonga capital, hitting homes and here's the massive ash cloud as the volcano erupts sending shock waves spread sfrg the center. >> yeah, how about that we can see that from satellite right now. meteorologist allison chinchar back with us. allison, when you see this, what do you know about it? >> right. i mean, it's very impressive. i mean, you see these things often where you can see a lot of these from space but this is pretty impressive when you take a look at the scope of it. there you see the initial eruption and the shock waves around the edge here that takes place initially afterwards. again, it's a pretty large shock wave that takes place. this happened about 7:00 a.m. local time and 11:00 a.m. eastern time. norfolk island, about 4.2 feet but we've even observed tsunami waves on hawaii which is why
5:22 am
they do have a tsunami advisory in place over every single hawaiian island. if not just hawaii though we do have a newly issued tsunami warning for areas of the west coast. the timing of those waves would be at the early left, 7:30 a.m. pacific time. continuing to about 10:00 a.m. pacific time this morning. again, that variation being just because of how far away they are from the original point of where the tsunami initiates. again, you're looking between 7:30 a.m. pacific time up to about 10:00 a.m. pacific time for any of that unusual wave activity to finally make it to the west coast. >> we know you'll keep an eye on that for us, allison chinchar from the cnn weather center. thank you. new this morning, ukraine has invited president biden and president vladimir putin to take part in a meeting until part for the security for that region. it comes as russia may be
5:23 am
preparing to conduct an operation in eastern ukraine, attempting to create an excuse for an invasion of that country. >> cnn senior international correspondent sam kiley is following all of this from kiev. sam, a spokesman for putin said those reports are unfounded. i don't know that you would expect anything different from that. but what more are you hearing? >> reporter: so, first, the false flag, as it's called attack that the pentagon say that they have intelligence has been uncovered in the donbas region, that's in the eastern ukraine area, occupied in 2014 by russian-backed rebels. now false flag attack, as you know is when a government, or an agency attacks itself, or its own people, in order to blame a third party. so, in the past, russia has been accused of doing this relating to chechnya, russia was blamed
5:24 am
in the end for attacking its own people and blaming the chechans. and undercover operatives from the donbas region is planning to attack in that area and blame the ukrainians and use that as an use for making war. at the same time, ukrainians say they've uncovered a similar plot that they say is under folding in moldova also against russian troops that they say they would then get blamed for. we've got no evidence to support these, other than the claims from these two national intelligence agencies. and the russians flatly reject it. but there has been increasing amount of tension, of course with 120,000 russian troops gathered on the ukrainian border with the russians taking an increasingly hard line after the failure of a week's diplomacy in which the russians were demanding that east europe turn the clock back to 1997, before
5:25 am
any of the east european countries had nato forces stationed in them. and get a written undertaking that ukraine would never be allowed to join nato. that's really the crux of the issue, the united states, european union, western allies all agree that's up to nato and ukraine, not the kremlin. >> sam kiley reporting from kiev, thank you so much. let's bring in aboigail stander now. congresswoman, we appreciate you spending your time with us. let's talk ukraine, with the sanctions if it invades that country, sanctions didn't work in crimea. the threat of sanctions don't seem to deter vladimir putin. so if you're looking at all of the options how far should the united states go to protect ukrainian sovereignty? >> well, thing first and foremost, the phrase that they're using, crippling sanctions against putin, all of his cronies and counterparts,
5:26 am
certainly, i think there are more aggressive stems as it relates to sanctions that the united states could be taking than what we've taken in the past. but notably, the information that is out in the public is leading to this discussion is the excellent work of the men and women of intelligence agencies throughout the world. so, certainly, at this point in time, the men and women of the u.s. intelligence agencies are digging into the information that is available to us. analyzing, providing that information, of course, back to the white house. and back to lawmakers. and military and diplomatic leaders. and that's going to be incredibly pivotal for us to fully understand the scope of where we are, and what the threats are, before making any forward movements on final decisions. >> congresswoman, i do want to pivot to a domestic issue that i know you are passionate about. you're one of a growing number of lawmakers backing bills that would bar current members of congress and their families from
5:27 am
trading stocks. you've actually introduced the trust in congress act, along with republican congressman chip roy. this is a bipartisan proposal that has a lot of support from both sides of the aisle. why is this issue a priority for you? >> this issue is a priority for me because it's a priority for the people i represent. it's a priority for the american people. we need to ensure -- we, congress, need to take active steps to ensure that every american knows that we are spending every day working on their behalf. not on behalf of our own financial stockholdings, and in the early days of the pandemic when we saw reports of members of congress who were buying and selling certain stocks that were to most people's view pretty related to the early stages of that pandemic, that was just another example in the american people's eyes at look at those lawmakers. we're in this pandemic and they're buying and selling stocks. in my own district, we sent out
5:28 am
a survey asking my constituents what do you think, should lawmakers be able to buy and sell individual stocks? and we had more than 3,000 responses in fewer than 24 hours and 93% of people said absolutely not. this is an active step we can take to ensure that people know that we are working to further gain their trust. not to just avoid impropriety and the actions of illegal stock trades or informed stock trades but also even the mere perception of that impropriety. limiting ourselves in this way, not allowing members of congress, their spouses or independent children to buy or sell individual stocks is a step we can take. that's why we see so many members of congress across the political spectrum, across geographies, across lengths of service getting behind this bill. that's why we have a companion piece on the senate side,
5:29 am
senator ossoff and senator kelly. and senator hawley with his own bill. so it is sort of a priority taking hold across congress, on both the house and senate side. and i look forward to building a coalition until we bring this bill for a vote. >> and yet, congresswoman, a key member of the house is not supportive of the idea. speaker nancy pelosi has effectively said that we live in a free market economy. and lawmakers should be free to participate in that economy. what's your message to the speaker? >> my message to anyone who would sort of say that we can do what we want, we're just like everybody else, we're not. we're members of congress. we have access to information that others don't have access to. we vote on things that could potentially move the markets. and i think we should be held to a different standard. members of the media. members of the intelligence
5:30 am
community. members -- depending upon where your job is, stockbrokers, people in different professions have different requirements placed on them based on access to information. or based on the idea of ensuring that there's no viewed potential conflict. members of congress, we have a lot of responsibility. we have a lot of access to information and we should be held to the highest standard. many members of congress agree with me on that point. i think it's entirely valid to put such limitations on ourselves and our immediate family, spouses and dependent children. and i hope over time, for those in congress who have hesitation, they'll see the value in affirming our intent. the value in telling the american people we are only working for you. and i hope they'll join our efforts. >> why do you think speaker pelosi won't put it on the floor for a vote? >> well, there's a couple steps to move forward. the bill needs to go through for
5:31 am
markup. certainly, i've heard from some colleagues who say i would put forth this amendment or i would make this adjustment. there's still time where the bill needs to go for a markup and get to the floor. certainly, the biggest coalition of members who support this bill both as co-sponsors and those who intend to vote for it, i think we are moving steadily towards a floor vote. these things don't happen in a day. certainly, we introduced this legislation more than a year ago, chip roy and i, we've been steadily building support for it. i'm grateful for the kind of push from people across the country who have really, you know, recognized this issue as being an important one, of trust within the american population and so we're moving forward. we don't have a date for a floor vote, but there's a couple steps before us. and we're slow but steady, we'll get there. >> please keep us up to speed on that progress. i do want to ask you more broadly about joe biden presidency. we're about one year into it as
5:32 am
of this coming thursday. some of your party's top priorities are gridlocked in congress. national voting rights legislation. the historic build back better spending bill. what do you plan to tell voters if these key items don't pass, come the midterm elections in november? >> i intend to tell voter what is we have done in this year, with democrats in charge in the house, and certainly with the support of my vote and my advocacy, we have passed the american rescue plan. that's a bill that delivered billions of dollars locally to our communities to support our schools. bringing kids back safely. new hvac systems, now counselors in our schools. it's a build that providing billions of dollars across the country for access to broadband activity, certainly a priority across the rural communities that i represent. it's a bill that sent money directly to our localities so that they can continue to recover from the pandemic.
5:33 am
it's a bill that sends money directly to businesses in the form of ppp loans and so many of the small businesses i represent. depends on those ppp loans. even in, you know, tw2021 to continue to stay afloat. then there's the bipartisan infrastructure investment and jobs act. a bill that is bringing billions of dollars to the commonwealth of virginia to repair our roads, our bridges. to continue building out that broadband internet. replacing our pipes, strengthening our water systems and building up our resiliency, particularly in the area of the chesapeake bay and our coastal re regions. so there is so much that we have done and there is so much that we continue to work on and work for. so, that's the message that i'm bringing to voters across virginia. and certainly, the message that i'm bringing to the people that i represent. we have done so much that has real tangible impact on people's lives. and we continue to work for more
5:34 am
progress. that process at times can be bumpy, but what we've delivered so far has been so deeply meaningful and important to individuals, to businesses, and to the larger economy across the commonwealth of virginia. >> congresswoman abigail spanberger, plenty more questions to ask. i hope you'll come back when we have more time. >> thank you. >> of course. stay with cnn, we'll be right back. w bizarre" by omc ♪ no annual fee on any discover card. ♪ ♪ i just wish more people knew how easy it was to get health coverage. i'm only paying $52 a month for there are quality plans for even less. my job doesn't offer health insurance, but with the new law, i found an affordable plan and only pay $47 a month. actually, a friend of mine recommended and now we're paying less than $60 a month for coverage. i was skeptical at first, but it is real. i'm covered with no monthly payment. new law. lower prices.

well, former vice president mike pence is speaking out about the january 6th insurrection. in a recent op-ed piece he wrote this, on washington 6, an angry crowd ransacked the capitol, largely to try to get congress and me as the president of senate to use federal authority to overturn results of the presidential election that had been certified by and this is happening after the leader of the oath keepers pleaded not guilty yesterday. and we're learning that merrick garland was not willing to bring the charge. talk as you about seditious conspiracy. i know it's a charge that's very specific, it's very targeted. what does it mean in this case. >> okay, look, to find somebody
5:40 am
guilty of seditious conspiracy, prosecutors would have to find that two or more people conspired to prevent, hinder or delay any lobby in the united states. now, that sounds obvious, because we watched this play out on camera, right, you saw people in the capitol building. what's so hard? number one, you got to prove there's communication, text messages, phone messages, whatever there might have been between multiple planners and number two, that their ultimate goal wasn't just to cause violence but to stop the carrying out of any law. that's actually high bar. it's not charged very often. i believe the last time they even charged it was 2010 or 2011. and the justice department just didn't want to see these charges get thrown out, i think. that's why it took them so long to bring these. >> the encrypted app communications are potentially what is important here. how so? >> yeah, they're potentially damning because, number one, it's quite clear they were using
