tv New Day Weekend With Christi Paul and Boris Sanchez CNN June 19, 2022 3:00am-4:00am PDT
only from us... xfinity. good morning and welcome to your "new day." i'm boris sanchez. >> and i'm in for christi paul. the key points that drove the decision and when vaccinations can begin. plus, election officials that former president trump personally pressured to overturn the last election are set to testify publicly this week. with a we can expect to hear from them and what the january 6th committee plans to focus on. >> any effect on the fishery especially up here, i mean,
that's people's livelihoods. >> yeah, yeah. >> people get pretty upset. >> the impact demand for water from the colorado river could have on those who depend on it for their livelihoods if left unchecked amid the worst drought in 1,200 years. and the scorching summer temperatures refusing to let up across the country. where it's expected to feel like 110 degrees this week. good morning. we are thrilled that you are starting your sunday and your week with us. it is sunday, june 19, juneteenth. happy father's day as well. >> yeah, i have to say happy father's day to my dad and husband while i have the chance. good to be with you, boris. so the white house is saying shots can begin as early as this week now that cdc director dr.
walensky and signed off on the pfizer and moderna covid vaccines for kids ages 6 months to 5 years old. and this marks, of course, a major milestone for millions of parents who have waited anxiously to get protection for their children. >> roughly 17 million kids are eligible for the vaccines which will mostly be administered at the offices of pediatricians and pharmacies nationwide. cnn's miguel marquez has more on these vaccines. >> reporter: kristin, boris, it is official. this is the last big tranche of americans who were, until now, unable to get vaccinated. almost 20 million under 5s are out there and able to be vaccinated against covid-19. it is not clear, though, how many parents are going to take them up on that option to get them vaccinated, at least immediately. look, the panel that recommended this spoke and discussed this
for several hours on friday and then several hours on saturday and two unanimous votes to allow both those vaccines to be distributed and administered to under 5s. a few things that they keyed on during those discussions. one, the vaccine is effective in under 5s in preventing severe illness, that the vaccination is better than previous infection. a lot of parents saying my child had covid some time ago so he or she is inoculated against it in the future. they found it is still better to be vaccinated and ensures especially as the covid-19 virus is changing much better to be vaccinated than rely on a previous infection. while there are side effects, just like for me or for you whenever we got this vaccine, there are side effects, they believe they are manageable. they will watch very carefully as this rolls out.
and then they discussed a lot about the practicality of both distributing and administering all these vaccines as they get out around the country so that practitioners know how to use them and to give them to younger people because it is a slightly different regime. the two different vaccines they voted unanimously to approve the moderna vaccine is a two-shot regimen. the pfizer vaccine is three shots. and now that they have approved it, they were already being ordered up by some states and already on the way to certain locations, so we could see shots in arms in the next couple of days. boris, kristin? >> miguel, thank you so much. so they resisted pressure from donald trump to help him overturn the 2020 election results. now state officials are going to share their stories with the nation before the committee investigating the january 6th insurrection. a member of that committee
congresswoman zoe lofgren says these officials put the rule of law ahead of politics. >> these individuals are republicans. they voted for trump. they supported him. but they wouldn't do illegal things that he asked them to do, so we expect to hear in some detail about the pressure that was placed on them and why they were true to the law instead of the pressure. >> cnn congressional reporter daniella diaz joins us. why does the committee want to hear from these individuals in particular? >> reporter: kristin, i think zoe lofgren, who sits on this panel, puts it perfectly. these were republicans who supported trump and refused to bow to his intimidation to try to work in their states to overturn the 2020 election results. they represent, of course, battleground states that trump
needed to win the 2020 election. one of them being rusty bowers, who is the republican and arizona state house speaker. we plan to hear from him directly. bowers will join georgia's election officials, republican secretary of state brad raffensperger and gabe sterling, who is his deputy. they also plan to testify. now bowers supported trump's re-election bid in 2020, but he refused to bow to intimidation and attempts to get him to back efforts in the legislature to decertify biden's election in arizona, and he previously described how trump and then president trump's lawyer rudy giuliani called him after the 2020 election to convince him to somehow involve the legislature in the state's certification process before sending its presidential electors to congress. we're also going to hear, as i said, from raffensperger, who, of course, if you remember, was part of that now infamous january 2021 call where trump
pressured him to, quote, find the votes so that he could win georgia, kristin and boris. it's going to be very, very interesting to hear from these three on the panel tomorrow as they tell their stories of what they went through, of course, during the 2020 election and the pressure they received from trump. >> yeah, daniella diaz, thank you so much. let's take a closer look at what we've learned from the select committee hearings and what we can expect ahead. a contributing editor for "wired," garrett, the committee has held three hearings so far. you say that what we've learned is far more disturbing than even you expected. how so? >> i think what we have seen this was a plan, and this has been the committee's argument since the start of the hearings, this was a plan that was more carefully considered. it was multifaceted, and it was consistent. it was also a plan by the
president to try to overturn the legitimate certified election results that he was told was wrong, that he was told consistently was illegal, that there was no standing for the officials to try to do the things that he wanted them to do, and that, nevertheless, he persisted. >> as we look ahead to next week, another big week for this committee, georgia secretary of state brad raffensperger is one of the election officials set to testify before the committee on tuesday. and you'll remember he's the official donald trump pressured to find enough voters to overturn joe biden's victory. remember this? >> so, look, all i want to do is this. i just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have, because we won the state. >> so, garrett, how damaging is
that, and how critical is raffensperger's testimony? >> i think one of the things to remember in the context of this whole wild series of events that unfold between november and january 6 and ultimate ly januay 20th, that telephone call with the georgia secretary of state on its own would be one of the most remarkable and corrupt election interference efforts that we have ever seen in modern american political history. and, of course, it was dwarfed just days later by the january 6th insurrection at the capitol as protesters tried to disturb and stop the certification of the electoral college. but that telephone call on its own was a remarkably krupcorrupd direct effort by the president to overturn the legitimacy of
the election. >> yeah, i think that's been one of the interesting things about this hearing just how much material they have, that call being one of them. garrett, last week we heard so much about trump's effort to pressure vice president mike pence to overturn the election and, you know, ultimately pence refused to go along and is praised for that. do you think he deserves credit for doing the right thing, for following the law? >> i think he deserves at least partial credit for doing the right thing. one of the things that did come clear on thursday the extent to which mike pence did the right thing only after making a very concerted and wide-ranging study to make sure that there wasn't an argument for him to do the wrong thing. that he entertained the idea that he could interfere in the election. he studied it. he asked his predecessors whether he could.
and only after, effectively, every single person in his orbit told him he needed to hold strong and there was no basis for him as vice president to interfere with the certification of the electoral college did he hold strong. now, of course, he has been unwilling to testify before the committee. they clearly would like him to do so, would like him to talk more about those efforts and his experience on january 6, because one thing the committee made clear was just how close we came to a much bigger constitutional disaster and real violence on capitol hill as the protesters, angry at mike pence, storm the capitol and came within, according to the committee, about 40 feet of finding the vice president himself. >> yeah, just dangerously close. garrett, one more thing before i let you go. you've written a book "watergate: a new history."
this is the 50th anniversary of that scandal. what lessons do you think we still need to learn about half a century later? >> i think one of the things that has really stood out to me in watching these hearings is that when you look back atwater gate how much it took to protect and preserve american democracy. it took all of the institutions in washington, the media, the fbi the justice department, the house, the senate, the courts, and what a critical role congress itself plays in protecting democracy. and what we are seeing right now is the committee doing some of that important work, but we still don't know where we are in the arc of the story of january 6th. we don't know as a country whether we will look back on this as a turning point for the country or a warning that got ignored. and judge luttig on thursday told the committee clearly and plainly that donald trump and
his allies are out there saying that they will steal the next election, and i think we need to take that warning seriously, and i hope congress takes its responsibility to protect american democracy just as seriously as the watergate committees did in the house and the senate in 1973 and '74. >> all great points. we have several hours of these hearings to go. garrett graff, thank you so much. >> always a pleasure. still ahead this hour, ukraine's president vowing that he's not giving up even an inch of territory to the russians just as new explosions rock the country's capital. we'll take you live to kyiv for the very latest. plus, why one political analyst says democrats should not dismiss a second term for president biden. that's still ahead on "new day." , so i can lock in moisture, feel hydrated, and look healthy. cerave facial moisturizing lotions.

military officials say air defenses were able to engage enemy target and that so far, fortunately, there have been no casualties. >> the attack on kyiv happened while ukrainian president zelenskyy was making a rare trip outside the capital paying a tribute to odesa where he met with regional leaders and toured a hospital treating injured troops. live in kyiv, ukraine, could you hear the explosions this morning? >> reporter: what we did hear was the air raid siren sounds. ukrainian air defense systems that intercepted russian missiles. the last time kyiv was targeted was about june 5th. it's a rare occurrence but a russia of russia's capability to hit the capital long after their retreat. it comes a day after president zelenskyy made his first visit
visiting two cities targeted by russia's attempts to take control of the black sea. dozens of soldiers were killed or wounded. you saw president zelenskyy dressed in military type clothing walking and seeing the destruction in civilian neighborhoods and it's a continuation of his strategy. he's been an ever-present leader, a source of morale for his countrymen and that's what he wanted to carry with him is that message of solidarity for those on the front lines. he handed out med aals and told them to take care of ukraine and moved on to odesa, russian forces have occupied so much of that southern coast along the black sea. it's odesa that gave port access. they are forced, not allowing them to export grain and other important things. it's a visit to boost morale
again on the front lines and to remind for president zelenskyy, his soldiers, they are outmanned, outgunned. he says we have a greater will to live than they have a number of russian missiles. >> as you noted, control from the black sea is one of the kremlin's goals in this invasion, so much import and export critical to ukraine's survival that runs through that body of water. where does russia's effort to stop ukraine from accessing the black sea stand right now? >> reporter: the black sea in and of itself has become a flash point, a place where conflict has spread. much of the ukrainian navy was destroyed during the crimea conflict. even though they are outmanned, outgunned, they have been able to inflict damage. ukrainian officials say they sunk a russian tugboat, that
all-important supply in april when a major naval war ship was sunk. you heard that in zelenskyy's message, we must secure our waters, be able to take control of the black sea. >> great point. thank you. so the 2022 midterm elections are months away but in washington there is already speculation about the next presidential election. president biden faces sinking poll numbers as some people in his own party are calling for another democrat to run for the white house. biden does intend to run again. let's discuss with cnn political analyst, julian. appreciate you getting up bright and early for us. you wrote an op-ed that
democrats should not write off a second biden term yet. debates over whether he should run again, quote, only weaken biden's standing, diminishing his political capital in washington and making it more difficult to act as a strong leader in the coming years. where do you see opportunities for democrats to capitalize on the incumbent president's strengths? >> well, first, the incumbent president is always in a better position than any other person in the party to run for re-election. it's unclear who democrats have at this point, who would be more formidable in this particular election. second, he has a record that he can run on from his legislation, the american rescue plan and infrastructure to the way he has maintained nato that i think is often taken for granted because he's in difficult times. and then i would just add presidents recover from
difficult second years. president obama did it in 2010. and finally when presidents don't run for re-election such as johnson in 1968 or harry truman in 1952 it often makes them weaker and gives an opportunity for the opposition to win. >> i want to dig deemer on something you just alluded to, people taking biden's achievements for granted. he did pass a massive covid relief package, the infrastructure bill, the response to the war in eastern europe are major wins. americans are facing crushing inflation and record breaking gas prices. how much do you think it outweighs the complaints of voters in november? potentially years from now in 2024. >> look, the bad economic times cannot be ignored if there is no improvement in 2023 or 2024
those can easily overwhelm the accomplishments, could set up the possibility for republicans to do pretty well in 2024 and in the long term bad economies can be defining. president george h.w. bush in 1992 went from the person who was successful in operation desert storm to the person who couldn't handle the recession and went on to become a one-term president as did president carter in 1980. the condition of the economy in the next couple of years will be extremely important for the temperature of the electorate. >> julian, you mentioned the r-word, a recession. some economists believe we're already in one. the white house is insisting that a recession is not inevitable. is that the right messaging from the white house? >> obviously they can't ignore the threat and think it's wrong just to say that americans are
not suffering but that's not what they're saying. the point is how deep are the economic problems and can recovery happen in the next year? we're in an unusual moment this post pandemic situation and it's not even post pandemic but economically something we haven't been through. it's fair to try to walk the electorate through why this might not be your normal recession and there's ways for improvement to happen more quickly than at other times. >> i want to ask you about president biden's potential 2024 opponent. it is a foregone conclusion that president trump will run again, he's weighing a 2024 bid even before the mid-term elections. what are the pros and cons of announcing before versus after the midterms, julian? >> well, before a lot of people
are paying attention to politics. if the former president is relatively confident the midterms will go poorly, it sets up a narrative. he announces democrats do poorly in the midterms. biden is blamed and he can then accelerate his campaign very quickly. waiting until after, just see how everything settles and that's when you begin the story telling. that's not going to be the decisive factor, the before or after. i do think the midterms could easily provide a boost to the former president in a re-election bid. >> great to get your expertise in these matters. thanks for joining us. in just one week eight people died trying to cross this river. and now border patrol agents in texas are undergoing new training to save lives. ure balac , , so you both stay comfortable and can help you get 30 minutes more restful sleep peper night. save 50% on the sleep number 36060 limited edition smart bed.

an update now to a tragic story we first told you about yesterday. philadelphia fire officials have released the name of that firefighter that was killed in a building collapse yesterday morning. >> yes, he is lieutenant shawn williamson, 51 years old, and a 27-year veteran of the philadelphia fire department. the mayor of philadelphia saying in a statement for 27 years he dedicated his life to protecting the people of our city. the building collapsed after a fire early saturday morning. six people were trapped in the building. five were rescued and taken to the hospital. the cause of the fire is still under investigation. meanwhile, officials at the southern border say they're on high alert as crossings reach record levels, sweltering desert heat and roaring canal waters are making it even more dangerous. >> eight people killed in just one week.
cnn's priscilla alvarez shows us how they are responding. >> reporter: in these roaring waters first responders train for the worst, migrants who have been swept away while trying to cross the u.s./mexico border. >> you get pushed underneath, you get pushed out t. could mean life or death. >> reporter: already authorities say there have been eight deaths here in the span of a week signaling a grim outlook for the summer as migrants journey to the border in extreme conditions. the canal here intended to get water to farmers poses a unique danger with higher water levels and a fast-moving current. chris menendez, captain of the el paso fire department water rescue team, is bracing for more rescues and potential drownings. >> we can throw a rope, throw them a ring and they can rescue themselves off that device, but a lot of times that's not the case. we come in when it's too late,
they're deceased. >> reporter: since october there have been more than 14,000 searches and rescues along the southwest border according to u.s. customs and border protection compared to over 12,800 in fiscal year 2021. border officials are on high alert issuing warnings about the sweltering desert heat and crossing dangerous waters. migrants will also try to climb over the border wall and fall in the process in the el paso sector there have been over 229 injuries since october from those falls. agents will try to render aid or take migrants to the hospital if necessary. >> a lot of the people at the shelter have been deported. >> reporter: built-up pressure and insecurity has driven migrants to make risky decisions. >> it's an index of desperation, an index of pain, and an index of frustration, of not being able to access the water.
>> reporter: officials are allowed to turn away migrants. that hasn't dissuaded people and thousands continue to wait in mexico. >> had you come last week the whole place was full. >> reporter: reuben garcia runs a network of shelters taking in migrants. >> over the past several months the numbers have consistently been at 3,000 per week. 3,000 per week. so there were nights we had close to 400 people sleeping here. >> reporter: southern border cities are adjusting to the reality migration flows won't slow down. el paso is now considering a processing center to alleviate stress shelters. what does this say about where we're going? >> i believe this is the new world that we're going to be experiencing and it's not going to be a temporary situation. >> reporter: u.s. customs and border protection stopped migrants nearly 240,000 times last month, a number that has gone up month by month and it raises serious concerns among authorities as the temperatures climb into the triple digits.
priscilla alvarez, cnn, el paso, texas. >> priscilla, thank you for that report. you are definitely feeling the heat if you've been outside lately. more than 15 million people under heat alerts this morning. and this scorching summer is only getting hotter. some places will feel like 110 degrees this week. we'll tell you where you can expect it in your forecast next. the highest level of safety you can n earn? subaru. when it cocomes to longevity, o has the highest percentage of its vehicles still on ththe rod after ten years? subaru. and when it comes to brand loyalty, who does jd power rank number one in the automotive industry for three consecutive years? subaru. it's easy to love a car you can trust. it's easy to love a subaru.

triple digit temperatures and severe storms are expected across the country as we head into a new week with nearly 15 million people under heat alerts today. >> let's get you to the cnn weather center and meteorologist allison chinchar. when can we expect relief? it's just been heat wave after heat wave. >> long term, fall, autumn, by the time that comes around. in the short term likely another week before we really see this next wave begin to break itself back down. high temperature in fargo 101. minneapolis likely to top out at 93. even kansas city topping out at 91. st. louis a high of only 87. all of that heat is going to start to spread its way across the country. even the areas in the mountain west where it's been below average, you are going to start to see those temperatures r receding and getting back to above average, too, in the next 24 to 48 hours. look at these temperatures, again, you're talk being 96 in chicago for monday, up to triple digits by tuesday. atlanta also climbing into triple digits by the time we get
to wednesday, raleigh from 84 up to 97 by wednesday. now that heat is also helping to fuel some showers and thunderstorms that we have across areas of the northern plains. we have the potential for some strong to severe thunderstorms, lots of cloud-to-ground lightning as well. the main focus across north dakota and montana but it will stretch further south into the panhandle of oklahoma and texas and also monsoon season starting to kick off so we do expect some showers and thunderstorms across new mexico as well as arizona. >> allison chinchar, thank you so much. speaking of unbearable heat when water levels in utah's flaming gorge dam start to dip, the water gets too warm for trout to survive. >> and that's one reason residents get upset when the government releases water from it. cnn's bill weir has more. >> reporter: for those who love to chase trout, this stretch of green river provides some of the
best fly-fishing on the planet. >> it's phenomenal. i mean, you get people from all over the world coming to fish this. there's guides from new zealand, from south america. eric clapton's been up here. tiger woods. if you're a fly fisherman, this is one of the places to hit. >> it's a rainbow. chunker. >> reporter: oh, yeah. that's pretty. a big reason why is utah's flaming gorge dam. because it's one of the few dams able to control the temperature of the water flowing downstream. wow. not too hot, not too cold, creating a goldilocks zone for bugs, trout, and people who also flock to the reservoir behind the dam and keep the economy alive. so you'd understand if locals get upset at the sight of this,
the federal bureau of reclamation released enough raging water this spring to drop flaming gorge reservoir by up to 12 feet, a desperate move to help things downstream on the colorado where lake powell is down 170 feet and could evaporate into a dead pool with not enough water for hydro power or the 40 million people who drink, farm and ranch this system from denver to l.a. >> there's a lot of people who just get angry, and it's their water. it's their, kind of, geographic possession. they don't like it going down to desert cities that also need it. >> reporter: because the lower flaming gorge gets, the warmer it gets, and no more goldilocks trout. >> and then any effect on the fishery especially up here, that's people's livelihoods. people get pretty upset. >> reporter: i can imagine. >> or at least heated.
