tv   Inside Politics With John King  CNN  May 11, 2022 9:00am-10:01am PDT

9:00 am
hello and welcome to "inside politics." i'm john king in washington. thank you for sharing your day with us. brand new cnn reporting on the january 6th committee plan for a public hearing. expect video from the riot and possibly video from the trump family's behind closed door testimony. hungary now objecting to new and punishing sanctions targeting russian energy. a fracture of the western alliance comes as vladimir putin near ascii militar y objective.
9:01 am
the president visits a family farm in illinois today. a new government makes clear that inflation is here to stay. it suggests the worst might be behind us. the consumer price index rose 8.3% compared with last year. that's a big number. 8.3%. it's down from a 40-year high from last month. look at it month to month. inflation 0.3% in april. that's down from the 1.2% gain in march. a closely watched data point within the report was up not down. beware of anyone who tells you they are certain things are trending for the better. even if inflation is retreating from the highest tide, prices are still up at the fastest rate
9:02 am
in nearly 40 years. we start with a look inside these numbers and with cnn's christine romans. >> reporter: issue number one for the american family. the cost of living. so many categories it has been going up for almost a year now. those headline numbers in normal times would be very, very scary. they appear to be moderating, leveling off, peaking as one economist said today. it's not getting hotter but there's a fire. at this point, that's what we take for good news on the inflation front. when you look at a line chart of inflation. you can see what happened over the past year. a little bit less than a year than what we've experienced. 8.3% the annual inflation rate. as you pay more for everything, that means you have less purchasing power. right. the money doesn't go very far. we've seen that in the polls.
9:03 am
food and shelter two big parts, as well. we saw overnight gas prices, as measured by aaa hitting a fresh nominal record of $4.40. if you live on the west coast, you know it's more than that. gas prices have picked up here heading into the early summer driving season. so this is going to be a problem. those higher gas prices are not reflected in that cpi report. you can see the pandemic consumer behavior in spades in these numbers. when you look at airline fares, they're up 35% just over the past three months. they're now back higher than they were before the pandemic began. you can see evidence here that there are supply chain problems but american consumers who want to spend their money after two years of covid crouch, frankly. you can expect higher prices for
9:04 am
things like that to persist. >> uncertainty in the economy makes for uncertain politics. that farm visit by the president is designed to give him a firsthand look at stresses caused by pandemic supply chain issues. inflation. now the war in ukraine is impacting world food supplies. the white house now. an important day for the president. the question is, how does he talk about the new numbers? >> reporter: yeah, john. we covered the president's big speech on inflation on your show just yesterday. part of what he talked about is the fact that inflation is really, really complicated. he said that it manifests itself in so many ways. as you said, the war in ukraine has made things even more complicated. he said, look, i get to do a better job of explaining things to people better. explaining to people what is happening across the country. this is a part of the reason he's traveling to illinois today. he's going to a farm just 60 miles outside of chicago.
9:05 am
he is going to be talking about supply chain issues. ways to boost food production and lower food prices. this coming on the heels of the new inflation data that we saw coming out this morning that christine walked us through. i want to read a part of the president's reaction to those numbers. he said in a written statement this morning while it is heartening to see that annual inflation moderated in april, the fact remains that inflation is unacceptably high. as i said yesterday, inflation is a challenge for families across the country and bringing it down is my top economic priority. now, john, i can guarantee that white house officials are not going to be celebrating the fact that we did see inflation moderate a bit in april. they are going to want to see a whole lot more data and they are certainly not in a position to make any predictions right now. particularly in terms of whether they think this is the worse and the worst is behind us, john. >> thank you. we'll watch the president as he travels. we'll bring the conversation
9:06 am
into the room with cnn's abby philip, arkansas let saenz, and catherine lucy. the president has to be careful here. part of the idea to get him on the road to say i get this. i want to hear from you directly. not a guy in washington an isolated politician standing at the white house saying i understand you. >> yeah. and the white house is very aware of the political dynamics of inflation and other concerns about the economy. you consistently look at polling and that is where american voters say they are most concerned at this moment. eight in ten americans in the poll that cnn released last week felt the federal government hadn't done enough on inflation. that's why you see the president biden holding the speeches like he did yesterday. going out into the country trying to see the real impact that farmers are experiencing with this today as they're trying to show they have this at the front of their minds and they're trying to do something about it. even though the actions they've taken so far really haven't.
9:07 am
>> we're in the middle of may. it's a problem in americans everyday life. never mind the fact it's a political year. the clock is ticking. the challenge is voters at home will decide who they blame it is. the president is in charge. that's the price you pay. the question is, there's no escape from this. look at the report gas up 44%. used cars 23%. chicken, coffee, new cars, health insurance, air fare, milk, beef, fish, rent, eggs, bacon, furniture, flour, electricity. ev everywhere. it's every second of every day american consumers are seeing this, which is the president's challenge. >> yeah. you cannot deny it's happening when people go to the grocery stores. their bills are eye popping. this is coinciding with this administration for a long time
9:08 am
thought their biggest challenge would ultimately be the coronavirus pandemic. now i think they feel like most americans, for good or bad, maybe they shouldn't, but most americans have moved on. americans have moved on. they want to move into the next phase of their lives. maybe they book summer travel, maybe eating out more, and finding that all of that is so expensive it borders on unaffordable. so that's the reality that americans are living with. and the white house is keenly aware of that. they also recognize there are some aspects of people's lives that just don't feel the same. so you go down the street in your town and stores that used to be open are closed. things you used to be able to find on the store shelves are not there anymore. there is a psychological element to this, as well, which is a recognition that people are experiencing weirdness in their economy. things that are not back to what they consider to be normal. i think bit by bit the white house is going to try to address
9:09 am
those where they can, if only to say i understand that this is what you're experiencing and we're trying to do a little bit here, a little bit there to try to ease some of the strain you've been experiencing. >> and to your point about everything, look, the president of the united states does not control the supply of baby formula in stores around the america. at this moment, a time you're dealing with inflation in everyday life. we went through about everything you encounter in the course of your day. there's a shortage of baby formula in many parts of the country and it makes mothers anxious. >> it's terrifying. it's fterrifying when it's the only true source of nutrition your baby gets. you almost cry. >> it's scary to walk down the aisles and see empty shelves and honestly not be able to find the exact formula we need. >> you would think it wouldn't be a problem to feed your baby but it's now scary.
9:10 am
>> again, you know, is that the president's fault? i think that's a stretch. he's the president of the united states at a time when people are already stressed in their life and you get this. >> yeah. certainly baby formula shortage is not his fault. the white house said they're looking at thing in this case can do in this. it's deeply unsettling, to abby's point, troubling to parents to think they can't feed their children. this is compounded by all the other economic pressures that people are feeling. so if you're the white house looking to the midterms and you want people to feel better, to feel good about their daily lives, this is not helping. one of the things the president is trying to do now is not just say he's working on things but also say that compare me to what the republicans are going to do. one of the things you heard yesterday, one of the things that was in his statement today about inflation numbers was this argument that republicans would raise taxes. this would be -- things would be worse. i'm trying to do things. he's hinging a lot of this on a proposal from senator rick
9:11 am
scott. a proposal that some republicans distanced themselves from and mitch mcconnell criticized but ultimately history tells us it's hard to turn a midterm election from a referendum into a contrast choice. it just is hard to do people are upset. they're upset with the party in power. >> a lot is because of the covid. a lot it is an impact of the pandemic. people are tired and frustrated. we'll watch it. next reporting the january 6th committee will share. the focus and the potential witness list.

9:16 am
brand new cnn reporting how the january 6th committee plans to roll out the evidence and findings. a series of hearings begins next month. cnn is told a series of hearings focussing on key themes including what donald trump was doing as the violence unfolded and a close look at the organizing and financing of january 6th events. cnn is part of the great reporting and joining us now to tell us more. >> reporter: there's no doubt the expectations for the committee are great. especially when it comes to the hearings they've been working for for 10 months. we're less than a month away from their first hearing, which is scheduled for june 9th. that means we're getting to crunch time. we're told they're finalizing their plans and closed door hearings. it's difficult to get ahold of committee members. they've been in meetings preparing for the hearing taking place on and the month of june will be dominated by the hearing. we're told that members have told their personal staffs to
9:17 am
clear their schedule in preparation for some hearings taking place during the day. others expected to take place during prime time hours. there is broad overview to kick things off and a number of other topics including what president donald trump was doing during the riot. call logs show there was big gap. and false election law claims, and the organizing and financing the january 6th rulely. one thing they haven't decided on yet, is exactly who they're going to call to appear publicly to ask questions in an open forum. basically all the questions outside of some conversations with law enforcement have been behind closed doors. the question is, do you bring someone like ivanka or jared kushner or donald trump jr. to testify publicly. they videotaped pretty much all
9:18 am
the depositions. even if they decide not to bring the individuals forward, or if the individuals decide they don't want to come forward, they still have the option of playing those video taped testimonies or at least a portion of it as part of what we're told will be a multimedia presentation as part of these hearings. >> as it happens, ryan is staying with us for the conversation. the committee had 10 months to do this. they're going to have the hearings in june of a midterm election year. number two, as trump stumps for republican candidates, it gives every indication he plans to run in 2024. what is their test? history? future trump's political career? >> that's the question. obviously they feel the weight of history. clearly they're putting a huge amount into making these major presentations. but a lot of country has made up their minds. we see from polling it's not really clear who is going to be swayed at this point. maybe there are some independents still who would be looking to this for the fall.
9:19 am
but some of it does is marking what they've done and explaining and laying out to the public rather than necessarily moving trump supporters to a different column. >> it's fascinating in the age we live in now. everything is on the television and internet. pete aguilar asked if you're going call mike pence. >> we understand the interest in talking to the vice president and we haven't made decisions, at this point, but i can tell you that we continue to receive ample evidence that will help us in this discussion. >> it's the last part that is interesting. ryan knows best. if you talk to people involved in the committee. they have a thousand plus interviews. they talked to a ton of people who see the schedule every day and the principles every day. the paperwork every day. the mid level aids that are critically important to the anywhere in the country. potential witnesses include names that might not be household names at home. jeff rosen the acting attorney general at one point. richard donahue was a deputy in
9:20 am
the justice department. mike pence's chief of staff. so there are a lot of people who have critical information who might not seem like hollywood witnesses. >> yeah. and, you know, we got a little bit of a taste of that in a court filing that the committee made a few weeks ago. an aid to mark meadows testified to a lot of information about what was going on behind the scenes between the chief of staff and then president trump at the time. so the long list of mid level aids who know one would recognize or whose names are completely unknown to the vast majority of people who have useful information, that could be a fairly substantial list. and members of the january 6th committee have indicated as much. i think that to the question of where this all goes, one thing that has become clear is the efforts on, you know, the issue of the efforts to overturn the election results. to create the falsehoods that lead to the lie yacht.
9:21 am
that is not really over. i mean, that is still happening as we speak. there are candidates across the country running on those very same lies. so i think they have a role to play in sort of laying out the scope of the falsehoods. the scope of the conspiracy that lead to january 6th. that, too, will be important not just for 2024 but coming up on an election cycle now in which those people are on the ballot. >> right. that's why it's interesting. the committee has done meticulous work. they have done more research and gathered more evidence than people thought. let's be honest, every person on the committee said they knew donald trump is a threat to democracy. they've said it publicly. can they change any minds to the point here as you go forward or want to lay out the evidence for anybody else who wants to have it? >> it's probably going to be a little bit of both. i think one thing that will be interesting to see is how president biden engages with these hearings. he doesn't speak that often about what the committee is
9:22 am
doing. is this going to be a forum for him to maybe step up his attacks against former president trump. one of his most forceful denunciations of the former president was on january 6th. on the anniversary. could president biden seize on these upcoming hearings and insert himself a little bit more? >> and the other thing that is important, john, i don't think has gotten enough attention is republicans treat the falsehoods related to the 2020 election and that period after the election in january 6th and the insurrection itself as two completely different issues that have nothing to do with each other. what the committee wants to emphasize you do not get one without the other and the creation of the misinformation, the anger and the angst it created directly lead to what happened on january 6th. i think what part of what they are in charge in the hearings how they are definitively linked and the possibility that perhaps there's some sort of conspiracy or even criminal activity related to it. >> whibehind the scenes work ha
9:23 am
been impressive. we'll see if they can bring it into the public sphere in a public way. a new york judge making a significant ruling involving donald trump. ™ and subway's refreshing everything like the new honey mustard rotisserie-style chicken. it's sweet, it's t tangy, it's tender, it never misses. you could say it's the stepeph curry of footlongs. you could,d, but i'm not gonna. subway keeps refreshing and refreshihing and re... the more information i found, got me more curious. it showed how much my family was really rooted in camell county. we discovered that our family s been in new mexico for hundreds of years. researching my family has given me purpose.
9:24 am
9:25 am
9:26 am
9:27 am
just in. a stern instruction from a new york judge to the former president of the united states. pay $110,000 in fines or you'll continue to be held in contempt.
9:28 am
let's get to cnn's reporter for more. >> reporter: the hearing completed in new york state court. the judge saying he'll lift the civil contempt finding against former president donald trump but he wants him to pay the $110,000 that have accrued so far. and the judge said he's lifting this contempt on a couple of conditions. one, that the fine is paid. he wants someone from the trump organization to explain their document retention and destruction policy, including how it relates to post it notes. one of the top officials of the trump organization said that is how the former president communicated with his staff. often writing on post it notes. they want to make sure they have all the documents, any records that relate to donald trump specifically and his knowledge of what was going on at the trump organization. this is part of the new york attorney general's investigation into the trump organization's finances and the accuracy of the financial statements that were given to lenders to insurers and
9:29 am
used for tax purposes. the judge saying he wants, by next friday, the completion of a review of five remaining boxes. five of 17 that a third party vendor is going through. the judge laying in the ground work here saying the three conditions need to be met and trump will be lifted from the contempt. he's agreed to let trump put the money in the escrow account. >> we appreciate it. thank you. to ukraine. day 77 of vladimir putin's war. the ground advance not as fast as russia would like. but the new york "new york time this today. it reports putin's army controls about 80% of the contested donbas territory in eastern ukraine. up about 40% from the february invasion. they compare the violence there
9:30 am
to stalin in world war ii. it's one of the bloodiest battles in human history. now to scott mcclain in lviv. >> reporter: first, the belarus troops it was a defense minister said who said they're moving west toward the polish border and northwest toward the lithuanian border. they are going to be moving south toward the border with ukraine in response to what they say is a build up of ukrainian troops in that area. there's no indication that belarus troops would cross the border. i want to talk about her son, as well. an area occupied by the russians for the last two months and the kremlin appointed leaders there said they want to join russia. they don't want to bother with the referendum. they want to go straight to handing out passports and handing out citizenships. the kremlin seems to be on board with this.
9:31 am
they said that it should be up to the people to decide. they're not exactly calling for a referendum either. those leaders say they're not interested in declaring an independent republic. they want to go to joining russia. i want to show you new pictures. these are graphic. they come to us from the fighting force inside of the steel plant in mariupol. we can't verify when or where these photos were taken, but the soldiers say they show wounded soldiers. some with open wounds. some missing an arm or missing a leg. they say they simply do not have the medical supplies to adequately treat these people. they're calling on the international community to do something about it. to try to arrange some kind of a deal to allow these soldiers, at minimum, to be able to get out. now the situation, of course, at the steel plant has been dire for two months. not quite as dire as perhaps we thought. that is because ukrainian high-ranking general of the armed forces said today that
9:32 am
they actually were able to get ammunition and aid into the plant for some time repeatedly. they only stopped doing that once it became known to the public and the russians took out their capability with an air strike. we don't know how they were delivering the aid or ammo or how much they were able to get in or when it was cut off. the latest word from the soldiers, they have enough ammunition for the moment to fight off the russians for now, john. >> scott, thank you so much. and we'll switch maps now. this is the ukraine battle field. one of the reasons it's been successful in keeping the world against vladimir putin is because of this ring of nato countries around. but today word of potential fracture in the european resistance to russia. hungary's foreign minister quoting the putin-friendly president said the european union proposal to institute an embargo on russian oil would be like an atomic bomb to the economy. they'll only vote for the sanctions if it offers solutions
9:33 am
to the problems it would create. kylie, this a diplomatic hooik for the president to the other allyings. >> that's right. the eu is looking to ban the imports of russian oil into the country over the year. hungary is saying they think the timeline is too short. they would need a longer amount of time to essentially secure they could get energy imports from other places to come in place of the russian oil. hungary relies on russian oil for about 50% of the overall oil imports. it's a huge amount. that's why the foreign minister is saying we're not going to agree to this unless there's a solution to the problems this would create. and now when it comes to the united states, they are saying they're in favor of the eu banning imports of russian oil. we should note the united states has done so earlier this year.
9:34 am
the u.s. is a lot less reliant on russian oil than these european countries are. and the biden administration has been very clear eyed about that. saying this is not an easy situation that these european countries are in. a lot are heavily reliant on that russian oil. they're going to need something to substitute. but just last week, state department spokesperson ned price said it's undenial that russia's war machine is fuelled by pun tin's energy and the amount of money he's getting for the energy is still incredibly high. so we'll watch to see how the biden administration continues to thread this needle over the next few weeks as the eu figures out its way forward here. >> yeah. west virginia republicans give donald trump his wish. nebraska republicans do not. m c. everybody be cool, alright? with ringcentral we can pull bonnie up on phone, messssage, or video, all in the same app.

two weeks into a month of primaries in may that will tell us about donald trump's continued sway over republican voters across the country. nebraska one of the states that voted last night and nebraska said no to the former president. jim was endorsed by pete ricketts is a term limited governor. a businessman who accused by
9:40 am
multiple women of inappropriate contact he was trump's candidate. he came in second place there. jim will win in nebraska. it's a deeply red state. most likely he'll be the next governor of nebraska because here trump losing in the state of nebraska. but a big win for the president let's move to house races and come to west virginia in the second congressional district in the northern part of the state. it was the first race this year between two incumbent members of congress. west virginia had to redraw districts. it lost a seat. so you had incumbent alex moony against mckinley. mck mckinley voted to create a january 6th independent commission. donald trump didn't like that. he endorsed moony. even though much of the newly drawn district is the old territories from mckinley's district, look, moony won and won convincingly. he's more conservative, yes, than mckinley. last night in his victory speech
9:41 am
he said thank you donald trump. >> this is trump country. president donald trump endorsed me and all in for me. did a rally and had a live rally. that's what voters are looking for. our guests are back with me. i want to start there with wha whawhat mooney said. west virginia was choosing two house republican incumbents and their styles. mckinley is open to bipartisanship. he's open to traditional bring the bacon home politics. mooneys is a big no. what does it tell us? if the house republicans win the majority, it's a more confrontational party for the democratic president. >> 100%. it'll play out in west virginia and across the country. in these republican primaries
9:42 am
it's like a race between trump, trumper, and trumpist. and whoever is in the trumpist category oftentimes is going to get the closest look. because voters, republican voters want their candidates to say no. no to everything. especially donald trump tells them to say no. that's what he said about the infrastructure bill. trump used to, you know, trump was for infrastructure. just not biden's infrastructure bill. and so even that is something that for west virginia is so important. voters do not want their members to comprise with a democratic administration or a democratic senate or house. >> is there a message out of nebraska or just you had a, you know, candidate race and the candidate endorsed by the governor. this is the front page in lincoln today. jim is an businessman. a former -- a friend of the existing governor.
9:43 am
>> he was endorsed by the governor who is popular. you saw it. and he had the accusations against him which plays into this. it's a state, too, you saw don bacon won his primary. he is someone trump criticized. it is a state that has backed business republicans and that, obviously, continues. >> trump's candidates did very well. a split decision last night and move on. we can show you the primary calendar. we have next week we have north carolina and pennsylvania. two very big senate races there. trump has candidates and republican establishment and other forces of the party have others. and the georgia races, of course. trump has a lot of grudge matches in the state of georgia. >> yeah. i think these coming weeks will be the biggest test for former president trump's hold on the republican party. i mean, what is happening in
9:44 am
pennsylvania is fascinating. he endorsed oz running against mccormack. and now the stories that cathy barnett is mounting this insurgent campaign from behind. i think one interesting thing about her, even though she didn't get trump's endorsement, she's towing that line. she said maga doesn't belong to president trump. it belongs to the people. she's trying to kind of turn it around she didn't get the endorsement. she's espousing those values and maybe even further that that. >> we can show you the new fox poll in pennsylvania. oz has trump's endorsement. he was at 15% in march. he's at 22%. you can argue the trump endorsement helps. that's a surge. is it enough? are there forces at play. you see the republican primaries
9:45 am
in the four way races. they're split evenly until they break at the end. >> a lot of undecided voters and when you're split three ways, it doesn't take a whole lot to experience a surge. it may not be enough. i think we saw in ohio there were candidates who did surge a little bit toward the end. it wasn't enough. i think in this case, though, you're seeing some infighting in the republican party. you have the trump factor but also outside groups trying to throw a grenade into the whole thing. backing barnett at the last minute. will it matter? that's why it's going to be a fascinating race. they're willing to snatch it from trump himself which is amazing to think about. >> yeah. and very few republicans say i'm against you donald trump. there have few republicans make it about him. but we're going to see in georgia. remember the governor brian kemp refused. david perdue is going down to
9:46 am

senate democrats will try to pass a federal law guaranteeing the right toen a abortion. the vote will fail. it democrats will not get the full support of their own 50-member caulk cause. last hour the west virginia democrat joe manchin said he'll vote no. getting every senator on the record is one part of the democrat strategy in the wake of that leak supreme court draft opinion wiping roe v. wade off the books. here's what it would do. make the right to abortion part of federal law. it would eliminate restrictions currently in place in many states. including mandatory ultra sounds, waiting periods, 6 and 20 week abortion bans. health care providers would have
9:52 am
to be required to provide abortion acts. so democrats believe this is important on principle to have this vote. they know they'll lose. >> yeah. they want to do hold this vote so it's a messaging vote. they can pin the republicans against it and hold them accountable heading into the midterm elections. this is all about a trying to show that contrast between what the democrats are trying to do to cod fie into law and republicans standing in the way of it. democrats are really hoping at this point they'll be able to gavel nice their voters to head out those suburban women, young voters, maybe democrats who will sit out. and they're hoping that by tieing these votes to republicans it's going to put them on the record and have something to show heading into the midterms. >> let's listen. this is a sampling of democrats about why this issue is so important. >> i think it's important that everybody be on record and say do you support roe or not.
9:53 am
>> today's vote is one of the most consequential we'll take in decades. >> we need to ensure the freedom for women to make these decisions is guaranteed. that's what the vote is about. >> you see the passion the democrats have. the question is the supreme court we saw the draft opinion and we know the math on the supreme court is stacked against the democrats. the question is, can they make this happen elsewhere. this is a republican senate incumbents on the ballot for 2022. somebody help me on the map. pat toomey of pennsylvania is not there. he's retired. richard burr of north carolina is retiring. those are two places if they're running for re-election, you might think democrats could make a big play in the suburbs. even that might be a stretch. philadelphia area may be more than north carolina. if you look at the map, is there a republican senator who will vote no today.
9:54 am
>> i think democrats will try to make it an issue. grassley is tough as you know iowa well. it has gotten redder. i think that pennsylvania in the open senate race, it will be a big issue and a way they'll try to gavel nice voters in the philadelphia area. the philadelphia suburbs we saw were key to president biden's victory. so they're going to try to use it and then also in house races. some of the house districts, you know, suburban districts they've had a lot of issues with enthusiasm. this will help with women, college-educated women, younger women. but we can't say this enough. it is not the main issue on most voters minds. inflation is the number one issue for most people as we've been talking about day after day. certainly this will motivate some voters and they'll try to push it. they know they need an economic message. >> if the democrats can answer the economic concerns, can they? >> it's the margins. on the margins they move in some races. again this is a historically
9:55 am
monumental decision, if the supreme court issue is wiping away a right that has been on the books for five decades. look at this. monmouth did a poll 75% of democrats want to see a national law passed. 63% of republicans say leave it to the states. again, just about every issue we live with is red and blue america. >> yeah. for sure. and i think that, you know, democrats, the democratic base, they know it's not going anywhere at the national level. they know when democrats had power, they need to improve majorities. they haven't been able to accomplish this. i don't know how far it will go. when it comes to where it matters, it ultimately will be at the state's level. in governor's races in places like michigan and elsewhere. can they gavel nice voters where it matters. where they might be the last barrier between an restrictive abortion law and something else.
