tv Early Start With Christine Romans and Laura Jarrett CNN April 6, 2022 2:00am-2:59am PDT
this is cnn breaking news. good morning. welcome to our viewers in the united states and all around the world. it's wednesday, april 6th. i'm laura jarrett. >> i'm christine romans. brianna keilar is in ukraine. breaking news this morning. brianna? >> laura and christine, beginning with breaking news. the western part of ukraine is under attack. officials say air defense officials say they shot down missiles in borodakiv.
the situation in mariupol is worsening with no light, heat, medicine or water as heavy airstrikes pound the city. even as russia sticks to the story that the troops are not targeting civilian homes or infrastructure, things we know to be untrue. this security footage shows the moment that an ambulance parked outside of a children's hospital in mikolaiv was hit by an artillery shell on monday. it is images like these, horrible images like these along with sickening pictures emerging out of bucha that left president vold mer zelenskyy outraged when he addressed the u.n. security cou council. today president biden will speak to the council. what are we expecting?
>> so, brianna, let's talk about the fighter jet attacks overnight. what we've seen is that these are being shot down by air systems according to the ukrainians. so success there, there were some no injury. missiles did strike successfully in radekhiv. what this shows is that russia continues to use this capability, these long distance precision cruise missiles fired from the air, fired tofrom the a to knock out key areas.
they hit a command post. the whole idea here is regardless of what is taking place on the ground, russia has this ability to degrade the support networks that are keeping ukrainian soldier's morality up. >> are there any indications it's hurting their morality? >> the ukrainians don't say that. what the ukrainians are not admitting this is having an impact, but it's very difficult to see how it wouldn't at some point in some way be impacting the way the ukrainians are at the very least responding to this. they have to be anything about how they resupply their fighting units, how they get fuel to the front line, how they do, in fact, keep their forces moving in such a way that they are not vulnerable to these attacks. >> can we talk a little bit about mariupol? obviously there's been so much -- there have been so many
problems with getting people out of mariupol. what is ahead for that city right now? >> so the situation quickly remains the same. 130,000 people still there, no food, water, heat. dire situation. russian forces moving in on all fronts. it's been surrounded for a long time now. the extraordinary thing is the ukrainian defense is holding out. the defense has been so desperate they are continuing to fight. the russians are responding to that continuing to squeeze the civilian population and bombarding civilian airways. the convoys are aren't getting through. >> there's little information getting out of there and so few pictures but so important to keep our eye on mariupol because
that is where the worst of it is happening. thank you very much, phil black. the top u.s. military officer appearing before the house military committee. chairman of the joint chiefs of staff mark milley telling lawmakers he does not think the conflict in ukraine will be ending any time soon. >> but i do think this is a very protracted conflict and i think it's measured in years. i don't know about decades, but years for sure. this is a very extended conflict russia has initiated and i think that nato, the united states, ukraine and all of the allies and partners that are supporting ukraine are going to be involved in this for quite some time. >> let's bring in retired army lieutenant daniel davis who is a senior affiliate at the think tank. how do you see the contours of this war ahead? what do you think the time line
will be? >> i'm not completely sure. i believe it's going to go years for the fact that i just don't know it can. i don't know any side can hang on that long if you continue the fighting. i think what you see, what your correspondent was mentioning there about the russian ability to continue to hit critical military infrastructure throughout the country, not just in the east but the western part which is where all of the aid from the west is about to come through. i was talking to a source i have on the ground not far from mariupol a couple of days ago specifically about logistics issue and he said the ukrainian forces are having a terrible time getting stuff to the front and that's showing you how successful some of this process is for the russians in that they are having a hard time getting the stuff they need just to continue the operation. now as you may know, probably
the biggest fight possibly of the war is shaping up in the donbas area right now where ukraine is sending as many reinforcements as they can. russia has repositioned a lot of the troops that were up north of kyiv and they are preparing for an assault in the donbas area where they could potentially trap up to 50,000 ukrainian soldiers. if they close a pocket around them, it could get very dire indeed for the ukrainian side. >> so the u.s. right now has authorized another $100 million in anti-armor systems to ukraine. how effective are thesis snems and what more do they need? >> well, you know, the anti-armor systems have had a tremendous impact. all of these pictures of hulks and burned out tanks are helpful. what ukraine needs far more than that are the killer drone systems, the switchblade weapons
we've talked about coming in, up to 100. that needs to be in the thousands not just the hundreds because the anti-armor systems, especially in the eastern fight, is in much more open terrain. the russians have a lot farther range of attack so they can destroy these guys -- ukraine farther out but the drones can obviously be done from miles behind in a safe area, devastating effect. i think we need to send them a lot more of that kind of weapons systems. >> all right. colonel, thank you so much for being with us. colonel daniel davis, we appreciate you being with us. ivanka trump answering questions before the january 6th committee for eight hours. what the panel's chair is revealing about how it all went down. what the former president said about the true outcome of the election when he's behind closed doors.

ivanka trump in the hot seat. former president trump's daughter and senior adviser met virtually tuesday with the house committee investigating the capitol attack. she spent nearly eight hours answering their questions. ivanka's testimony coming after her husband jared kushner met with the panel last week. cnn's annie grayer is live in washington with more on this story. annie, the committee is obviously very enthusiastic about getting ivanka in there. she's a key witness. what are they hoping to learn specifically? >> reporter: laura, there are many reasons why ivanka is a key witness for the committee, like you mentioned. number one, she was at the white house on january 6th while the
riot at the capitol was unfolding and, two, she even went into the oval office at least twice that we know of to try and talk to her father, former president donald trump, about the violence that was happening at the capitol and trying to get him to stop that. three, we know from witness testimony that ivanka was in the oval office in the morning of january 6th when her father was on the phone with then vice president mike pence where donald trump was trying to pressure pence to not certify the election later that day. now as you mentioned, ivanka came in for an eight plus hour interview. this was a voluntary interview. ivanka did not come in under subpoena and neither did her husband who met with the committee last week, jared kushner. i spoke with the committee chairman, democratic congressman bennie thompson while the interview was going on yesterday and he told me that ivanka was
answering questions but didn't describe her as particularly, quote, chatty was the word that he used. so, you know, it's going to be really interesting to see what we can find out about what the committee learned from ivanka yesterday. >> yeah. it's interesting, you know, him saying i'm not aware of when asked if trump was citing the fifth amendment protection of self-incrimination or any other type of privilege. it sounds like she was forthcoming. what happens remains to be seen. want to ask you this, the house is set to vote on contempt charges for the two former trump advisers as part of the january 6th investigation. any chance that they're not found in contempt? >> reporter: so the house is voting today. you know, we're looking for -- we're assuming that's going to pass on party line vote but likely including the two republicans on the january 6th committee who were part of the
group to initially make this referral. so these two trump aides are peter navorro, who's trump's one-time trade adviser and dan s scavino who was trump's former chief of staff and they're being held in contempt. peter navorro has talked publicly about his efforts to try to subvert the 2020 election and working with trump to do so but he has claimed executive privilege when the committee has tried to ask him to answer the same questions that he's talked about publicly. dan scavino has used a number of delay tactics to try to evade the committee's investigation. he is a long-time trump aide who was in the white house on january 6th to provide key testimony. now the house is going to be voting on a contempt referral to the doj for a third time today. they've done it twice pre
previously. it's important to note that that's been picked up by the department of justice. as you can see, this is a process the committee uses frequently to try and hold those that they want to hold those in content and corroborate their investigation, this is a very lengthy process. >> yeah. annie, thank you for your reporting as always. appreciate it. we are following breaking news out of western ukraine this morning. the region apparently targeted by russian strikes. we are live in lviv with the very latest next. and for unexpected heartburn... frank is a fan of pepcid. it works in minutes. nexium 24 hour and prilososec otc can take one to four days to fully work. pepcid. strong relief for fansns of fast. i don't just play someonee brainy on tv - i'm an actual neuroscientist. and i love the science behind neuriva plus.

and we're back now with the breaking news out of western ukraine where the lviv region, that is the region we're in here now, was targeted by russian strikes. ukrainian air defenses said they shot down two russian cruise missiles. no casualties were reported. let's bring in michael bosacue. a senior fellow at the atlantic council and fellow spokesman for the security aregion. we've heard from mark milley this is a conflict that might be measured in years. what do you think? >> pretty extraordinary. of course, ukrainians all tell me they've been living with this hybrid war for eight years. another ten years will be -- could be a death blow to the economy here. already we're seeing a lot of
companies really struggling, even multi-national companies, brianna, who were here have had a lot of damage and they're not covered by war insurance. even if this was a month longer, two months longer, it's going to bring down an economy that was roaring before february. >> what do you think, especially on the heels of what we heard president zelenskyy say yesterday, enough with the conversation. if all you're going to do is talk, then you might as well dissolve yourself. i'm paraphrasing, but not that much. >> i used to work for unicef. i used to work for the u.n. you know what, i think it had to be said. good for him. he has the guts to say that sort of thing. hopefully it will make them think. you know, i've been writing for a long time now, for cnn opinion, how the u.n. is appearing toothless in this conflict. the u.n. was created to stop
these types of conflicts. early on in the war they couldn't bring themselves to calling it a war. they called it an escalating conflict. still to today they couldn't call out the aggressor, russia. it will be interesting to see how far zelenskyy can push the u.n. and other international leaders. this isn't a nice thing to say. we may not listen anymore. >> this isn't a nice thing to say. the atrocities that we're seeing are horrific. we've seen them outside of kyiv. we've seen some reporting outside of mikolaiv. i think the expectation is where russian forces have occupied, this may be the norm if you've had villages completely taken over. >> yeah. >> bucha not being unique perhaps. are you surprised as you see this as the world is? >> no, i'm not. i think the first time you and i spoke was in july of 2014 when
298 innocent civilians were brought down. they knew what they were shooting at. there are other hits there as well. i think ukrainians are shocked, horrified and not shocked at the russian brutality. what remains to be seen this will be the red line for the west. i think sadly there is more to be found. >> what does this do to the ukrainian psyche? does it diminish the will or increase the will to withstand russian aggression? >> absolutely increase. i talked to a lot of ukrainians in the past few days as i always do. the feeling here is it's better to die fighting on your legs rather than to live your life on your knees begging for the survival of your country.
they're going to fight this to the end. it has to be said more and more ukrainians feel they're battling a proxy war. nato is not coming up with a lot of the other things they're asking for or protection of humanitarian corridors. >> very good point. hearing that from so many people. michael, thank you so much for your insights. >> pleasure. back to you. russia's atrocities in ukraine triggering a new round of sanctions against russia. the eu plans to target putin's daughters. and the surprising admission from the former president who usually refuses to admit he lost.

directly to president putin but perhaps one that's not going to fakt his callousness. we know they are targeting european ports and they're banning russian vessels. this part of the new sanctions package would be in essence more of a personal message to president putin and, for example, stopping buying russian coal, which is worth $4.3 billion a year to russia. the european union is considering whether or not to cut oil purchases from russia which would have a much more significant economic impact on russia. if you look at all of the other supplies coming to europe since the beginning of the war, the sum total is over $21 billion in just over 40 days.
the european union is working on this today. it may take a few more days to get this worked out. they have residences in the european union. >> all of that business, europe essentially runs on the energy that comes from russia. russia uses that money to wage war in ukraine, right in trying to break the link. it will be painful. it will take some time. thank you for that. even as former president trump has continued to push the big lie, in reality he knows he did not win the 2020 election. speaking to a group of historians last summer, the former president admitted more than once to losing the race to joe biden. >> by not winning the election,
but when i didn't win the election, and when the election was rigged and lost. >> let's bring in one of those historians. cnn's julian zelzer. so nice to have you. i imagine it was a toozy of a call, zoom call, but the part that we really want to hone in on with you first he claims it was rigged. he claims january 6th was infiltrated by antifa and left wing activists, it wasn't, but then he admits he lost. how do we square all of this? >> well, he used that several times during the conversation. sometimes he coupled the fact he lost the election with his standard rhetoric of it being rigged, a couple of times he did not. i don't know how you square it, but there seemed at least in the free flow of the conversation to be some recognition in those words or some admission of what
actually happened. >> he has to know he lost otherwise he wouldn't have called the secretary of state in georgia to get more votes. he's saying i should have won if everything had been on the up and up. >> right. but that's very different than the argument you hear in public and the argument that's been the basis of the campaign against the election that continues until this day. so i think that's why people are picking up on these remarks when they hear them. >> i think it's interesting, a lot about the psychology of donald trump, that he's trying to rewrite history. he goes on to say he's trying say, no, no, no, write this down about me. really rewriting history. >> no, it's part of the brand in some ways. this is a person before and after the presidency shaping the way we see him and understand
him. that's what he is doing. he had read about this and he reached out to us and he wanted to give us his side of the story. that's what the meeting about was trying to persuade us which isn't how we write history but that was his mentality with this as it has been with most everything else. >> his goal was to shape the narrative as he usually thinks that his persuasive powers would be helpful. what were your take aways? did you learn anything new that was sort of surprising to you? >> well, this when it actually happened was pretty early in his effort to package january 6th as something very peaceful and presidential and almost non-eventful and that's where he first laid out the argument that's now familiar. most important, he saw a lot of what he did as transactional. all he was talking about primarily were the deals that he was able to cut or his prowess
as a negotiator. he saw politics very much as business and that was very clear in the discussion. >> yeah. fascinating read. thank you so much. nice to see you this morning. >> thanks, julian. >> thank you. speaking of history, for the first time in five years barack obama was back at the white house. >> vice president biden. vice president. that was a joke. the former president joining his vice president and current president celebrating the 12th anniversary of the affordable care act. for years republicans vowed to gut the affordable care act.
dr. anthony fauci sounding optimistic about where the nation stands on the coronavirus. fauci says the worse may be over with the omicron variant. >> we can't predict whether or not another variant is going to come from someplace else. remember, delta came from india. omicron came from africa. if we are staying with the virus we have now, we can feel comfortable that as we go out there's enough background immunity in the population, either from people who have been infected or people who have been vaccinated and boosted, that it is unlikely that you're going to see a big surge in hospitalizations again if we don't get another variant. so for this particular virus now, i believe we are out of the woods of seriousness. >> that's the good news, but fauci does say that it's a big problem that the senate's new
$10 billion coronavirus aid deal doesn't have funding for national assistance. a major bank predicting the u.s. is headed for a mild recession. plus -- >> hand him off. >> i've got him. come on, darling. i know, darling. give me another one. come on, princess. >> the dramatic body cam video shows police rescuing this family from a sinking car. that story ahead.
beginning late next year because of the higher interest rates. let's bring in a washington post opinion columnist. nice to see you this morning. the economists at deutsche bank write inthis. we no longer see a soft landing. we expect the aggressive tightening of monetary policy will push the economy into a recession. last year it was the strongest economy since the ragan administration. now we're all trying to guess when the next recession will happen. >> a number of other banks have also raised the probability of a recession at the very least. goldman sachs and some others have placed the odds at about 1/3. so deutsche bank is still an outlier, but we do see this sort of darkening of the economic outlook right now among a lot of forecasters and economists and it's partly because, as you just
read, the fed is tasked with getting inflation under control. and historically when they have done that, when they have raised interest rates, most of the time that has accidentally tipped us into recession. it was always going to be a really challenging task for them to figure out how to dampen inflation to get it under control. >> part of the problem is everything is hitting at once. >> yes. >> inflation was already running at a 40-year high, now russia invades ukraine and now we see these lockdowns in china which can't make matters any better. >> yes. it was always going to be a difficult and narrow path for the fed to follow. to raise interest rates just enough to deal with inflation, not enough to tip us into rece recession, that has gotten better. there are shocks that are hitting not just the u.s. economy but the global economy.
you have the unprovoked russian war in ukraine on one hand which is causing obstruction and making things a lot more expensive. and then in china you have this zero covid policy that's caused the huge lockdowns in shanghai and other places that are disrupting supply chains. again, going to contribute to inflationary pressures which is going to likely nudge the fed on the margin to raise interest rates even more. so all of those things together means that it's less and less likely that the fed will achieve the so-called soft landing and that's why you see a lot of worry out there. >> and we're seeing new sanctions on russia from the eu and the u.s. today. i think it's important to point out again that russia sells gas to europe, uses that money to wage war against ukraine and the west and western institutions.
breaking that link is going to be difficult. it could cause a recession in europe. it will be painful. but as jamie dimon, the banker said this week, we need to turn up sanctions as a stand against evil. i think the sanctions regime is going to be the new normal, right? >> at least for the foreseeable future as long as this war continues. again, it's easier, as jamie dimon pointed out or as you have pointed out for the u.s. to turn up sanctions because we are less reliant on russia particularly for energy. it's going to be a lot more painful for the eu. the goal is to punish putin, to punish russia, at least to minimize the pain that's suffered by those trade partners and that's going to be really, really challenging, particularly since energy prices are already quite high, especially in the eu. >> if you are in europe, punishing putin you're going to feel some pain, too. the hope of sanctions is to make
sure the target of the sanctions feels more pain than you do in delivering them. katheryn, so nice to see you. thank you. >> thank you. let's get a check on more cnn business this morning looking at markets around the world. asian shares have closed mixed here. europe has opened down. stock index futures leaning lower. it was a down day on tuesday after hawkish remarks from lail brainered. he said the fed would need to race rates. the fed soared to 2.56%. twitter leveled off as investors digested the news elon musk would serve on the board of directors. the dow fell just under 1%. s&p down 1.3%. the nasdaq down more than 2%. incredible police body cam capturing the dramatic rescue of a maryland family of four
