10:00 am
document retention policies and trump's personal involvement in preparing documents. they say graph has agreed to answer questions next tuesday. thank you for joining "inside politics" today. i hope to see you tonight as we count the votes. ana cabrera picks up our coverage right now. hello. thank you for joining us. today a fierce battle for the future of the republican party. right now voters are hitting the polls in five states, but in georgia drama unfolding between two people not even on the ballot today, or are they? former running mates now rivals. president trump and his vice president mike pence are backing two different candidates in the gop primary for governor. pence's pick, the incumbent governor brian kemp, the same man who rebuffed trump's efforts
10:01 am
to overturn the election results in 2020. trump's pick, purdue, the man who is peddling trump's election fraud claims. we have a lot to unpack in this race. jeff zeleny and e vo mccann are in atlanta and also steven fouler. thank you all for joining us. jeff, trump lashed out at pence and pence took what seemed to be a vailed swipe at trump and his 2020 obsession. are georgia republicans worried about how ugly this is getting? >> i think georgia republicans are doing what they do on election day. that's voting for the current republican governor if you happen to be a republican and happy with the direction that the state is going. governor brian kemp is trying to do one thing here. remind georgians that because of him they have a gas tax holiday. they're not currently paying sales tax on gasoline. it makes gas one of the cheapest places in the country that he's brought economic development
10:02 am
here to the state of georgia. he is just trying to focus on his policy and his role. the politics is playing out. talking to voters the last several days, there's not a sense necessarily that people are voting for or against donald trump. they're just not following this lead. in many respects, some leaders are just tuning him out. that's what brian kemp has been doing as well. but listen to the words carefully from former vice president mike pence last night at a rally here as he talked about the future of the republican party. >> when you say yes to governor brian kemp tomorrow, you will send a deafening message all across america that the republican party is the party of the future. >> the future is the keyword. much of this race has been in the past. just a quick refresher course for people who haven't been following this as closely as georgians have. the whole reason that former president trump has been angry
10:03 am
at governor brian kemp is because he voted to certify the 2020 election that showed president trump narrowly losing to joe biden. he lost the race, and ever since then the former president has been really had this grudge against governor kemp. but as we head into the really second half of election day here, hours left to vote, there is a sense on the ground here that this could be one of the biggest defeats yet of the former president. he's been all in on that race. and tonight he might lose. >> and trump's choice in the primary david purdue has gone lock step with trump in his message regarding the false election fraud claims but he closed out his campaign using racist rhetoric to attack the democratic candidate, stacey abrams. let's listen to that. >> hey, she ain't from here. let her go back where she came from, if she doesn't look it here. the only thing she wants is to be president of the united states. she doesn't care about the
10:04 am
united states. when she told black farmers you don't need to be on the farm and she told black workers, you don't need to be, she's demeaning her race. i'm over this. she should never be material for a government for any state, much less our state where she lives. >> how is she responding? >> reporter: listen, stacey abrams is a black woman returning for governor in georgia with a long political career. so she certainly has heard this type of rhetoric before. she seemed at a news conference frankly to not be bothered with it really. her central more generally is whether it's purdue or incumbent governor brian kemp, they seem to be more focussed on attacking her than addressing the issues of consequence that she's identified of as consequence to georgians like maternal mortality, like expanding
10:05 am
medicaid, like gun violence. take a listen. >> the challenge i have is that the answer from republicans, from our former senator to our current governor, is to fight me instead of fighting the problems that are facing georgia. and i urge everyone to pay less attention to rhetoric and more attention to the record and to the results. and i'm here to provide results for the future of georgia. >> so abrams larger argument today is that she is running a campaign based on one georgia. based on bringing margin alized communities into the fold and speaking to people maybe who haven't historically voted or participated in the process waking them up and trying to reach them as well. >> steven, trump has been trying to tump georgia voters against kemp for over a year now going all the way back to the 2020 election. but based on the polling, heading into today, that hasn't happened. why not? >> well, the message never really resonated with conservative voters in georgia who have three years' worth of
10:06 am
brian kemp's record to look at. he's slashed taxes for people. he's passed teacher pay raises. he's an active conservative legislation around abortions and elections and firearms. and really he's the total package for what conservative voters in georgia want. and for the last six months on the campaign trail, they have said as much. there are still plenty of republicans in georgia that love donald trump, but they love brian kemp, too, and david purdue's message of not being brian kemp just simply hasn't been convincing. >> so do you think, though, trump's attacks on kemp in some way have backfired in georgia? i was reading another report, a pennsylvania post piece, which they talk to voters in dpa georgia who voted for trump who really love trump but who are now saying they want to just vote for someone who trump isn't endorsing, because they felt that his attacks against temp were unfair. >> right. i mean, i talked with a lot of
10:07 am
voters who say hey, the whole reason we don't like stacey abrams is we don't think she has the best interest of georgia at heart. why is donald trump doing the same thing? he's not from georgia. he doesn't understand georgia's economy or people, and so there are plenty of republicans who say hey, stay out of this. we've got our guy and we want to keep it that way, and that's what the polls have shown. that's what fundraising has shown, and at campaign stops all across the state, we've seen republicans have this sort of reaction to trump. >> and so the bigger picture comes next in terms of how this election then translates to the national stage as we move forward through election season. thank you, steven, eva, and jeff. we'll all be watching closely what happens tonight in our live coverage starting at 7:00 p.m. eastern right here on cnn. don't go away from that. president biden will be returning now to american soil shortly. this morning he concluded his asia trip by convening the quad,
10:08 am
leaders from japan, australia and india along with the u.s. and he tried to clean up comments from when he said yes, the u.s. would respond militarily if china were to invade taiwan. >> mr. president, is the policy of strategic ambiguity toward taiwan dead? >> no n. >> would you explain? >> no. >> mr. president, would you send troops to taiwan if china invades? >> our policy has not changed at all. i stated that when i made my statement yesterday. >> you heard jeremy diamond opening the line of question. he's joining us now. the president may have put the allies in an awkward spot with that taiwan comment looming over the meeting. how strong is this alliance as he leads, and what did they accomplish? >> reporter: well, listen, the president's comments about taiwan have left a lot of
10:09 am
questions about the u.s.'s policy towards taiwan and toward a potential chinese invasion of that island which china has claimed as its own sovereign territory for decades, but there are a few signs, if any, frankly, at this point that those allies in the region have been unsettled by the president's comments. many of the region are already growing extremely uneasy about china's increasingly aggressive military posture in the region. some in these countries including in japan and south korea pushing for less ambiguity as it relates to what exactly that military response would be to china should it choose to move and try and invade taiwan. but as it relates to the president's own comments on taiwan, look, he initially appeared to throw out strategic ambiguity altogether. then you heard him in response to me and one of my colleagues there saying that policy was back on and refusing to even elaborate on what exactly he means as it relates to china,
10:10 am
trying to reinject some ambiguity. while those comments on taiwan may have shifted the focus, the news focus of this trip, ultimately it does seem like president biden was able to accomplish some of the major objectives that he set out for himself with this trip. the primary one of which is shoring up these alliances in the region, bolstering the alliances. we saw him announce in south korea an intention to try to scale up the military exercises with south korea, to shore up that alliance both militarily and economically. he announced a new indo pacific economic framework to try to push back on china's economic influence in the region. and then we also saw him have that quad summit, meet with allies and also talk broadly about the impact of the war in ukraine, and how that also relates to china, an attempt at deterrents, perhaps, beyond the military, but also just talking about the sanctions that russia has faced, an attempt to deterrence for china as it relates to taiwan.

10:16 am
thousands killed, cities levelled. we've seen ukraine's will to fight. something many russians just don't have. and today russia is now responding to one of the latest high profile protests of this war. this is a 20-year russian diplomat who just resigned over putin's aggressive war. his words. the diplomat writing also never have i been so ashamed of my country. those who conceived this war want only one thing, to remain in power forever, live in pomp pous, tasteless palaces, sail on yachts. he goes onto say to achieve in a, they're willing to sacrifice as many lives as it takes. thousands of russians and ukrainians have already died just for this. nic robertson is live in geneva. we know how dangerous it can be for russians to speak out against the kremlin. how is russia responding? >> reporter: yeah. they're taking a very
10:17 am
interesting tone, if you will. sort of semi dismissing it, and also sort of casting him as an outlier. peskov, the spokesman for president putin said, and let me coat you here, the diplomat has a position in which he condemns the actions of the russian leadership and the actions of the russian leadership are supported by almost the entire population of our country. that means this gentleman has spoken out against the general consolidated opinion of the country. according to peskov, he is against this. well, in most other countries what this diplomat has done is something called democracy. he's had a voice that is different to the government and spoken out. i spoke with the general a short while ago and asked if he had any regrets about the position he's taken. he said no. he doesn't. he thinks it's a significant stand that he's taken. it's about the russian people. it's about the ukrainian people.
10:18 am
these are crimes he has said against the ukrainians and the russians, crimes against the russians he said because what putin is doing is denying them the possibility of a prosperous and free future, and that's really what his he's standing for, and he's critical of russia's foreign minister. i think this is also going to resonate with other russian diplomats saying that lavrov is no longer eninterested in diplomacy. i think it's become very apparent that sergey lavrov no longer behaves like a diplomat. these are stinging rebukes about both president putin and about the russian foreign minister from the diplomat. >> he wanted his opinion out there, but i wonder if he is scared for his life now. did you ask him about that? >> reporter: yes.
10:19 am
he is concerned about his safety. at the moment he feels that his -- where he is and what he's doing at the moment, he feels that it gives him some safety, and he has people to lean on in that regard here in switzerland. but he felt that it was very important that the significance of what he wanted to say and the strength of his feelings, they needed to be communicated, and that was worth standing up and doing it. >> nic robertson, appreciate your reporting. thank you. today in ukraine, fighting remains most intense in the eastern donbas region. and in the decimated port city of mariupol, a devastating discovery. a ukrainian official says that 200 bodies have now been found in the ruins of a high-rise building there. and for the first time, ukraine's military is releasing this footage. a foreign made calm cause zi

10:29 am
as cases continue to slowly tick up around the globe. right now in the u.s. there's just one confirmed case in massachusetts, but there are another six probable cases that officials are monitoring in a few different states. now, globally they're tracking more than 250 confirmed and suspected cases across 18 different countries. the good news is a monkey pox vaccine already exists and the cdc is in the process of releasing from the strategic national stockpile for those at high risk like health care workers possibly treating infections and people with weakened immune systems. i want to bring in someone who has had monkey pox. a veterinarian who contracted monkey pox in 203. he joins us now. thank you for sharing your story with us. i just want to first understand what happened in your case? how did you contract monkey pox? >> thank you very much for having me.
10:30 am
i love going through this story. i first contracted monkey pox by coming in direct contact with a prairie dog that had been infected by a rat that a client of mine had imported through chicago and purchased. >> that's pretty wild that it obviously had moved from animal to animal eventually to humans. what can you tell us about the symptoms you experienced and how bad did it get? >> well, initially i had handled this particular prairie dog, and it took about several days or so before i started to feel like a rough flu was coming on. chills, fever, aches, headache, maybe mildly swollen lymph
10:31 am
nodes, kind of dizzy. not quite feeling well. the interesting part was one of the reasons why we were looking at that one prairie dog was to euthanize it so that we could send it to the wisconsin state lab for analysis and testing, because my client and his sister were both ill after he had lost the rat and a numb of his prairie dogs. so we were doing that in an effort to find out what was wrong. within about a week, then, i started developing some pox like lesions and a particularly nasty one developed on my thumb. >> and how long did it last? and how did you get over it? >> well, interestingly, the initial thing that i did for my client east prairie dog was an antibiotic combination. all of his prairie dogs
10:32 am
recovered which is unusual for a pox virus type situation. he is placed on antibiotic. i was placed on antibiotic when i went to the hospital and notified them of a possible outbreak going on, and i responded quite well to antibiotics. so the illness phase was fairly short for me. however, the box lesions that i had lasted about two weeks. the lesion that i had on my thumb actually had become quite serious. i was in fear of possibly losing my thumb and not being able to practice anymore. >> and i believe we have a picture of your thumb, too. continue. i just want to show our viewers what you're talking about. >> absolutely. and so i ended up going in and having that lesion excised, and bi biopsied. that was submitted for analysis. it was during this time that
10:33 am
monkey pox was diagnosed from a biopsy that was taken from a young girl in marshfield, wisconsin who had a pox-like infection. they were very concerned about the possibility of smallpox, but when they evaluated at the labs, they found that it was a pox virus, but of the monkey pox subtype. that's how we understood that that probably came in from west africa, from the gambian rat and con contaminated all the prairie dogs that came in. >> thank you for your story. do you have any lasting side effects from that? >> no. not at all. once it was gone, it was gone, kind of like chickenpox. i have a star from my thumb, but that was it. >> it's like that war wound. right? proof that you survived. thank you so much, doctor. >> plenty of those. >> don't we all.
10:34 am
>> thank you for having me. >> thank you. i want to head to germany right now. some good news for a lot of parents stressed right now. trucks packed with baby formula are arriving at an air base. the next u.s. bound shipment taking off tomorrow as the nation continues to battle a crippling shortage. elizabeth cohen is there at the air base. elizabeth, how is this going down, and where will this shipment end up? >> so just less than an hour ago we watched a truck come in, the final truck for the shipment tomorrow morning. they loaded it up in palets. it's powder formula just like the shipment before. also both high po allergenic. that is because a lot of the problems that parents have been having is when they have a child that can't tolerate cow's milk, they're allergic. they've been having a tough time. on the flight tomorrow, it's
10:35 am
108,000 pounds of this powdered formula. on sunday it was 73,000 pounds. the one tomorrow will be larger. and together that can make 1.5 million eight-ounce bottles of baby formula. so what's interesting is the shipment that went out on sunday was sent to hospitals and doctor's offices and pharmacies and places like that. this next shipment, we've asked but haven't gotten an answer, whether it will go out to store shelves and certainly parents would like to go to stores and start seeing more product. these shipments, as large as they are, will probably not make an immediate difference for parents. they need to be inspected. they're imported from a foreign country. the fda needs to inspect them. 1.5 million bottles is a lot, but think of the millions of babies in the united states who drink infant formula. parents might not see a really
10:36 am
visible difference on supermarket shelves for many weeks. >> okay. elizabeth, we know you'll continue to track all this. and in the meantime, the defense rests. amber heard's legal team wrapped up its case in johnny depp's defamation trial, but we could be on the brink of the most dramatic testimony yet. we'll l discuss.

the drama intensifying as johnny depp's defamation trial enters the final days. amber heard's team rested their case without calling depp back to the stand. depp's team is rebutting the testimony. we are closely following all the disturbing details for us. gene, the goal is to poke holes in the credibility of amber heard and her witnesses. how are they doing about it? >> right, and all the way around. we always think about this as a defamation case. johnny depp versus amber heard, but she is counter suing. she tried to get all this dismissed when that didn't happen, she counter sued johnny depp for defamation for $100
10:42 am
million. and what they're really relying upon are articles in the daily mail that heard is saying that adam waldman who was the attorney for johnny depp, he got the information in these articles for the daily mail saying amber heard is a fraud and many other things. april 2020 through june 2020. they're saying depp was behind it and defamed her was the acting roles didn't come after that came out. she's asking for $100 million. today depp's team called the president of d.c. films which is a division of warner brothers, walter hamada to testify as to why she wasn't getting the starring role in aquaman ii. it's via deposition. >> what if any creative concerns did warner brothers have about asking amber heard as mira in
10:43 am
"aquaman ii ". >> concerns, did the two have the chemistry? i think editorially they were able to make that relationship work in the first movie. but there was a concern that it took a lot of effort to get there. and were we better off recasting, finding someone who had better more natural chemistry with jason momoa moving forward. >> so the rebuttal case is continuing. we believe it's going to be the next two days. but once again, this is depp's side being able to present the witnesses in rebuttal to amber heard. >> okay. jean, thank you. authorities are hunting for his daughter. wanted in an apparent love triangle murder. the father of kaitlyn armstrong insists she is not responsible. here he is on good morning america today. >> i know her. i know how she thinks. and i know what she believes.

the choice for attorney general is clear. democrat rob bonta has a passion for justice and standing up for our rights. bonta is laser focused on protecting the right to vote and defending obamacare. but what's republican eric early's passion? early wants to bring trump-style investigations on election fraud to california, and early says he'll end obamacare and guard against the growing socialist communist threat. eric early. too extreme, too conservative for california.

welcome back. i want to take you now to the u.s.-mexico border. cnn is there on the ground in mexico where migrants are anxiously awaiting the green light to cross the u.s. border. it looked like that was set to happen soon until a federal judge just days ago blocked the administration from lifting title 42. that was a controversial pandemic-era policy which has allowed to u.s. to quickly turn away people for public health reasons to help limit the spread of covid. >> reporter: are you nervous that the authorities are not going to allow you to enter the country? >> translator: yes, very much so. more than the nerves, it's the uncertainty of not knowing how long we will have to be here, especially for the baby. he's only a year and a half old, so yes, it's difficult. >> cnn correspondent matt rivers
10:50 am
is live now from the border. this is in ciudad juarez, mexico. >> reporter: we just played that sound byte. that was an interview we did yesterday with a venezuelan migrant who was here with his family at a shelter not too far from where we are in ciudad juarez, which is just across the border from el paso, texas, and what we're seeing is kind of a microcosm of what we're seeing up and down the border, going from south texas to southern california. this part of mexico, the border towns, are basically inundated with a number of migrants. thousands of migrants are arriving every single day. that shelter that we were at is completely full. they can't accept any more people, according to the shelter's director, unless some people leave, but the problem is that no one is leaving at the moment. part of the reason they're doing that is because this title 42 obligation in the united states has been extended after that federal judge's ruling in louisiana, and so you're not giving people an incentive to leave these shelters here to go try and apply for asylum in the
10:51 am
united states. that means one of two things. either people are trying to cross illegally or they're staying here in mexico and the shelter's director told me that even though title 42 has been extended, ana, he sees no world in which the number of migrants arriving here in northern mexico will slow down, meaning title 42 being extended just kicks the can down the road in terms of dealing with this immigration issue in a substantive way. >> so many lives in limbo in the meantime. i want to pivot, matt, to another issue facing the biden administration as the u.s. is preparing to host a summit of latin american countries next month. officials are scrambling to prevent a bitoycott of this summit. >> reporter: this is a summit, ana, that happens once every three years with countries throughout the americas attending. it's designed to encourage diplomatic dialogue between all of the countries here in the western hemisphere, at least in this part of the western hemisphere, and there is a diplomatic controversy brewing because the united states, as host, gets to set the guest list, and the united states has said they were likely not going

to invite venezuela, nicaragua and cuba, three socialist countries where the united states has serious issues with, not the least of which is venezuela and nicaragua where they regard the presidents as being illegitimately elected. other leaders around this region, however, including the president of mexico, have said they will boycott the summit of the americas if not everyone is invited. they're going to do so, according to the words of the mexican president, in solidarity with those leaders. you could also see a boycott of presidents from countries like bolivia and honduras and even the president of brazil, one of the countries most important in this part of the world is also saying it might not send its president as well. >> okay, matt rivers, thank you. if you feel the need for speed, check out a new passenger jet that may be just the ticket. a canadian company has unveiled what it calls the world's fastest and longest-range

purpos purpose-built business jet as part of an effort to resume super sonic passenger flights for the first time since the concord was retired in 2003. let's get to cnn aviation correspondent pete munteen. how fast are we talking? tell us about this plane. >> we are still subsonic, not quite supersonic, not quite the speed of sound but really, really close. we're talking about an airplane called the global 8000, just rolled out yesterday at a big aviation conference in europe. 8,000 comes from the range. 8,000 nautical miles. really long. the speed is key here. mach 0.94 is the top speed. 94% of the speed of sound. can fly up to 19 passengers. this is not a commercial airliner. this is a private jet. but just want to give you a little perspective on the speed here. a typical airline, mach 0.8. the global 8000, mach 0.94. this is all about bragging rights. not near as close to the concord. we haven't seen that fly in
10:54 am
almost 20 years. it was going mach 2. new york to paris in 3 hours. concord, this is one of the last flights. in 2003, sort of a sad state of affairs. it was beleaguered by problems. there were fatal accidents. it was really tiny inside. it was the lap of luxury, though, and this is what private jet manufacturers are trying to appeal to. they just did a test flight of the test bed for the global 8000. this plan is called the 7500 but in a bit of a dive with an f-18, they were able to get this plane over the speed of sound, mach 1.015. nothing in the civilian market has ever been that fast in a long, long time. so, we will see, ana. this is the new standard for luxury. it's all about speed, and the big thing here is the range. the city pairs. you can essentially go really long distances on the same amount of fuel.
10:55 am
l.a. to singapore, 12 hours. houston to dubai, the oil route, also 12 hours. london to perth in australia, 12 hours. this is going to change things. we will see when it comes to the market. hopefully in 2025. big market for private jets, still going up even though commercial airliners are going down because of the pandemic. >> i want to know when it's going to be available for the vast majority of us who, you know, always never have enough time. >> yeah, you know, $78 million is the price tag on this, ana, and you can see why. look at the interior here. pretty plush. >> oh, man. >> you can see the mahogany there, the leather seats. four different zones on this. it's all first class on something like this. >> do away with the first class stuff and make it cheaper so that the rest of us can appreciate the convenience of it. thank you. >> it will be a little while. that does it for us. see you tomorrow, same time, same place. the news continues right after this.
