tv   New Day Weekend With Christi Paul and Boris Sanchez  CNN  June 19, 2022 4:00am-5:00am PDT

4:00 am
i mean, you. good morning and welcome to your "new day." i'm kristin fischer in for christi paul. >> i'm boris sanchez. president trump is said to have personally pressured them to overturn the last election and they are set to testify publicly this week. what we can expect to hear from them and what the january 6 committee plans to focus on. plus, the cdc signs off on covid vaccines for kids as young as 6 months old. the key points that drove the decision and when those vaccinations can begin. and scorching summer temperatures refusing to let up across the country. where you can expect it to feel like 110 degrees this week.
4:01 am
>> we're going to have 80% of the staff we need. we're hopeful we'll get to 80% of the pools that were able to open. >> a shortage of workers is forcing some summer staples like community pools to stay closed. the concerns that could lead to a rise in violence. thank you for joining us this sunday, june 19th. juneteenth. happy father's day to all the dads out there. kristin, great to be with you as always. >> great to be with you, boris. they resisted pressure from donald trump to help overturn the 2020 election results. state officials will share their stories with the nation before the committee investigating the january 6 insurrection.
4:02 am
zoe lofgren says these officials put the rule of law ahead of politics. >> these individuals are republicans. they voted for trump. they supported him. they wouldn't do illegal things that he asked them to do. we expect to hear in some detail the pressure placed on them and why they were true to the law instead of the pressure. >> election officials from georgia, brad raffensperger, set to testify at the hearing along with house speaker rusty bowers. bowers was able to block a bill that would have given the state legislature the power to reject election results. let's give you more in-depth preview of what we can expect from tuesday's hearing. we are joined live from capitol hill. why does the committee want to
4:03 am
hear from these specific individuals? >> reporter: boris, congresswoman zoe lofgren summarized it, these are republican officials who supported donald trump in the 2020 election who refused to bow to his pressure to overturn the election results in the states they represent that were key battleground states that trump needed to win the 2020 election. now you said, of course, that rusty bowers, that republican who is also the arizona house state speaker, he will testify and that he has his own personal experiences. for example, he refused to bow to intimidation and attempts to get bowers to back efforts in the legislature to decertify biden's victory in arizona. there's also, of course, brad raffensperger of georgia, the republican secretary of state and his deputy gabe sterling. raffensperger was part of the now infamous january 21 phone
4:04 am
call where trump pressured him to, quote, find the votes for him to win the georgia election, the georgia state for the election, now, of course, raffensperger resisted and he's already spoken to the committee. remember, this is for the american people to hear their stories so we will plan to hear more from them as they testify on tuesday about their experiences from trump as they were pressured to overturn the election results in their states. boris, kristin? >> a big day on tuesday but what more can we expect after tuesday's hearing? >> reporter: we know that tuesday, kristin, is the fourth hearing out of what we expect to be at least seven from this committee. all of them in an effort to show the american people and weave that narrative that trump tried to overturn the 2020 election results and incited that violence on january 6 during that insurrection, but we also know that the next hearing that
4:05 am
will happen after tuesday, which was originally postponed. it was supposed to happen next week, will focus on trump's efforts to use the justice department to help support his false election fraud claims. so this is just one part of a bigger part as we continue to see as the committee wants to show the american people its research that they've conducted behind closed doors over the last 11 months and we expect to see that happen after tuesday. kristin? >> several more hearings to go. daniella diaz, thank you. let's dig deeper with former federal prosecutor who is the host of the on topic podcast. good morning. appreciate you coming on with us to talk about this. you've argued that trump's best defense is that he was, quote, detached from reality despite several advisers telling him that his claims of a stolen election were baseless. theoretically, though, he would only need that defense if there's a criminal prosecution. so what do you think the odds are that doj files charges?
4:06 am
>> i'm not -- i'm not -- i don't think there's a good chance the doj will file charges. it's possible but i think there are significant challenge. we just heard in the last hearing there were lawyers. advancing theories that they, themselves, thought were illegal. john eastman, for example, rudy giuliani, sidney powell were advancing theories that were obviously something that could be prosecuted but obviously they were giving legal advice. i just think that when you look at this as a whole, the justice department will see a coin flip here. a challenge for the justice department. >> renato, we were playing a clip of john eastman, one of
4:07 am
trump's attorneys who pled the fifth more than 100 times to the january 6th committee and also told rudy julian giuliani he sh on the pardon list. if charges were filed, what would the trump defense be that his state of mind was impaired? that he was misled? give us your impressions. >> sure. i think the trump team would say that -- would point to john eastman and say he's the one who gave us that advice. trump was relying on this well credentialed law professor who told him this was a legal scheme. i think mr. eastman himself has much greater peril, is taking the fifth for good reason. he was asking for a pardon. now the issue there, what he's going to say with his defense, i thought this was constitutional,
4:08 am
i was trying -- he has a lot tougher time because the jury is going to have a lot more trouble believing that he didn't know what he was doing. he's the lawyer and he's telling other lawyers he thought this was going to lose 9-0 in the supreme court. notably he did not have that conversation with former president trump who, while he did something i think is reprehensible, it's challenging to prove his state of mind here. >> on the subject of eastman, we know he was apparently exchanges emails with the wife of supreme court thomas' wife. he was aware of heated exchanges, debates between supreme court justices about taking up cases related to trump's claims of fraud. the january 6 committee has put forward they want to hear from ginni thomas. what do they gain if sheep decides to comply with them and
4:09 am
tell her side of the story? >> i do think all of us gain as americans when we find out the truth about what was happening. we don't know what exactly she was saying and doing but there's been a bit of a cloud around her comments. given the fact there are people questioning the integrity of the court it would enhance that if the public was able to find out what happened and hear from her, her side of the story and what her role was. this is a challenge for the court to deal with. i hope she does testify. >> the state officials, two from georgia and one from arizona set to testify before the committee this week, how does their account of what happened in the weeks and months after the
4:10 am
election bolster the argument to the american people? >> i think the committee is trying to show this as a bipartisan investigation and obviously the republicans try to not cooperate with what the committee was doing or most of them. whether a committee is putting on republican witnesses and we've heard from some prominent republicans like judge luttig. i think what this will show is there are republicans who had a lot of integrity and did not do so when pressured. the committee is trying to win over republicans and independents to have a bipartisan consensus that we don't want to ever do this again or be in a situation where our election can be overturned again. i do think regardless of what side of the aisle you are on, that is a very valuable and laudable goal because we don't want our elections to be determined by either crooked
4:11 am
lawyer or just selected by the vice president at the end of the day. >> we have to leave the conversation there. appreciate your time, sir. well, after months of waiting the cdc has finally cleared the way for covid-19 vaccinations for kids under 5. >> and the majority of u.s. states have preordered thousands of doses of both the moderna and pfizer vaccines. miguel marquez takes a closer look. >> reporter: it is official and 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 now able to be vaccinated against covid-19. it is not clear how many parents will take them up on that option to get them vaccinated at least immediately. the panel who recommended this spoke and discussed this for several hours on friday and
4:12 am
several hours on saturday and two unanimous votes to allow both those vaccines to be distributed and administered to under 5s. the vaccine is effective in preventing illness in under 5s, the vaccine is better than previous infection. a lot of parents say my child had covid some time ago so he or she is probably inoculated against it in the future or won't have a very bad case in the future. they found it is still better and ensures especially as the covid virus is shaking much better to be vaccinated than rely on a previous infection and while there are side effects like for you or me when we got this vaccine, there are side effects. they believe they are manageable. they will also watch very carefully as this rolls out. and then they discussed the practicality of both
4:13 am
distributing and administering all these vaccines as they get out around the country so that practitioners know how to use them and give to young 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 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? >> that is great news. still to come this morning, 100 million. that is the number of people the u.n. says has been forcibly displaced around the world. and despite the grim milestone there are stories of hope. and next, just as summer temperatures heat up, thousands of kids could be left high and dry. why hundreds of public pools and

here's a quick check of your morning's top stories. a sad update to something we first told you about yesterday. philadelphia fire officials have released the name of the firefighter killed in a building collapse that happened very early saturday. >> he is lieutenant sean 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 rescued and taken to the hospital. the cause of the fire is still under investigation. and a chaotic scene in virginia after police say someone fired shots in a mall. investigators say that a fight broke out between two groups and during the fight somebody pulled out a gun, fired shots.
4:19 am
no one was injured by gunfire but three people were hurt while trying to leave the mall. no suspects taken into custody. investigators say they're looking through video taken at the time. tsa officials say this past friday was the most popular air travel day of the year so far. tsa says it screened nearly 2.5 million people friday, the most since the sunday after thanksgiving. several factors contributed to the surge in passengers but this is the first time the stock market and banks are closed for the juneteenth holiday, it coincides with father's day so overwhelming crowds make perfect sense. >> perfect sense. boris, a trip to the pool right about now would be pretty nice considering the really high temperatures we're seeing across the u.s. cities across the country are having a really tough time finding something that used to be taken for granted really,
4:20 am
lifeguards. >> it seems there are triple digits just about everywhere you look. experts say more than 100,000 public pools may not even open this summer because of the lifeguard shortage. >> reporter: had you ever been a lifeguard before? >> i was a lifeguard when i was 16. >> reporter: how long ago was that? >> i'm 70 now. >> reporter: this summer robin is taking the plunge, getting back in the pool in philadelphia to be a lifeguard, 54 years later. >> i want to do something and feel worthwhile, purpose or something. >> reporter: she found her calling after she heard the philadelphia parks and recreation department wouldn't be able to open all of their 70 pools this summer. they're facing lifeguard shortages and so is the rest of the country. one-third of the 309,000 public pools nationwide will not open. how many do you think you realistically will be open? >> we'll have 80% of the staff
4:21 am
we need. we're hopeful to get to 80% of the pools. >> reporter: it's part of the fierce competition for workers in a red-hot summer job be market fueled in part by the lack of foreign workers following covid immigration restrictions. there are 11.4 million unfilled jobs with an unemployment rate of 3.6% and despite raising wages, a marketing campaign on tiktok and free certification, the philadelphia parks and rec department can't find enough lifeguards. >> we have people say target is offering $18 an hour. i'll be in the air conditioning and i get a little discount. who doesn't want a discount at target? >> reporter: right? how do you fight that, though? >> it's hard. >> reporter: when public pools don't open it leaves something without an escape from the heat and crime. >> we're experiencing a huge uptick in violent crimes, gun violence. critical for us to have safe spaces like this.
4:22 am
>> reporter: and across the country ymcas which serve lower income families have 75% of the 250,000 staff members they need to operate. >> we have competition in our cleaning and cooking staff with anything that would fall under the hospitality industry. >> reporter: and those camps more than 1,700 of them nationally, also act as child care when kids are out of school, critical so parents can work. >> we still have most of our camps and need for staff to take children off the wait list. >> reporter: as they wait for philadelphia pools to open, she now sees her role as more than just a lifeguard. how do you think it will be different this time around? >> well, i'm hoping that being a mother and a grandmother i'm hoping i'm a little wiser now and that's what i want to bring natural, just that warmth. don't test me, though.

4:35 am
more now on its history and the long road for its national recognition. >> reporter: juneteenth is a celebration that marks the end of slavery in the united states. also known as emancipation day, many consider it to be the country's second independence day. it was on june 19, 1865, that union soldiers led by this man, general gordon granger, arrived in galveston, texas, with orders to inform residents that the civil war had ended and to tell enslaved african americans they were finally free. the message came more than two years after president abraham lincoln had issued the emancipation proclamation. his order was difficult to enforce, so many slaves didn't see freedom until the end of the war. many african americans have marked the anniversary for years. but it was a woman from texas named opal lee who started a
4:36 am
movement to make juneteenth a federal holiday. known as the grandmother of juneteenth, the 95-year-old campaigned on the issue for decades. she even held a two and a half mile march each year to commemorate the two and a half years it took for slaves in texas to learn they were free. >> please, please continue the kinds of things you know we need to become one people. it's not a white thing. it's not a black thing. it's an american thing. >> reporter: in 198 texas became the first state to make juneteenth a state holiday. 47 states and the district of columbia followed suit. a dream come true for low and
4:37 am
for so many others. >> by making juneteenth a federal holiday all americans can feel the power of this day and learn from our history and celebrate progress and grapple with the distance we've come, but the distance we have to travel. >> reporter: a historical marker can be seen in galveston, texas, at the site where general granger and his troops set up their headquarters announcing the end of slavery. today americans recognize juneteenth with parties and gatherings, and the day is marked as a celebration of african american freedom and achievement. >> i would scream it from the house tops that unity is freedom. people have been taught to hate, and if people have been taught to hate they can be taught to love. >> reporter: fredricka whitfield, cnn. >> thanks to fredricka for that story. our next guest makes the argument that this year's
4:38 am
juneteenth is especially significant as lawmakers investigate an attempt to subvert democracy during the insurrection and amid criticism that there are ongoing efforts to white wash history by blocking students to learn about systemic racism. so let's bring in the director of the center for the study of race and democracy at the university of texas at austin and the author of "the third reconstruction: america's struggle for racial justice in the 21st century." good morning, great to have you on. you're making the argument is just as significant a holiday as the fourth of july, as, effectively, the true birthday of democracy in the united states. make the case. why? >> everyone happy father's day and happy juneteenth to everyone. when we think about juneteenth, it really is a corollary to july. when we think of independent day
4:39 am
like frederick douglass said what the negroes the fourth of july in his famous 1852 speech in rochester, new york. there was always a con stra dix with 1776 because of racial slavery and because women couldn't vote because of what the country had done and settlers had done to native american peoples as well. so juneteenth provides us a context to really become a new nation. abraham lincoln and frederick douglass really all called it a second american founding because it's through juneteenth not just black people but all americans in the 21st century have the concept of birthright citizenship. we have voting rights even though those are under assault and this idea of dignity and freedom. when we think of juneteenth we have to think about those americans who are black and enslaved as patriots alongside the heroes of the american revo
4:40 am
revolution. because of the january 6th hearings and the anti-crt legislation passed that really precludes millions of our young people from learning this history this matters now more than ever. we have to think to ourselves why juneteenth is so important and how it can be a shared moment of national learning but also unity and impact for how we can change the inequalities that really came to the fore in 2020 that allowed us to have this federal holiday. >> i want to share with our viewers a panel of the op-ed. quote, the very fact america now officially commemorates juneteenth is still a sign of hopeful if simultaneously fragile racial progress. the first holiday in the nation's history that reckons with racial slavery and the black contribution to american freedom juneteenth serves as an annual reminder of the power and
4:41 am
potential of a multiracial democracy that remains in many ways as fraught in our time as it was during reconstruction. i want to ask you about that hope and faith and the power and potential about a multiracial democracy because, as i've experienced and i'm sure you experienced, that doesn't sit well with some people. >> no, it doesn't. and, you know, one of the things that we have to come to terms with as americans we've always had this battle between reconstructionist supporters and redemptionist advocates of the racial status quo which was white supremacy. that continues in the 21st century. what's so hopeful, and this is where you get to barack obama and you get to so many different multiracial movements is that we've managed to overcome the most heinous aspects of our history to an extent, to an
4:42 am
extent. we haven't completely defeated it. when we think of juneteenth, sometimes we erroneously cast this day as a day black people were told they're free. that's not true. they are free, they have to do work contracts, they should stay on plantations and they shouldn't go to military outposts. in 1865 military outposts were the only way you could get letters, where you could get information about what was going on. and what black people did was follow the first one but they didn't follow two and three. they didn't just stay on plantations in east texas and other places and they did not stay away from military outposts. what they did is conceive of their own vision and brand of citizenship and dignity right there in 1865 and by the next year they were celebrating juneteenth as emancipation day, as independence day for black people. so when we think about that
4:43 am
legacy, that's how we get to the heroic period of the civil rights movement. that's how we get to rosa parks and martin luther king jr. and the people we all think of as these unbelievable heroes in the 21st century. so juneteenth is unbelievably important for us because it provides us a different way of thinking about american democracy and who the architects of that democracy are. yes, thomas jefferson is one of the architects of american democracy, but so are the enslaved black women and men who made juneteenth emancipation day something that was tangible and real for over a century and a half before we turned this into a federal holiday and as somebody who is a native new yorker and now a texas transplant, i'll say that texas is really important here because, in a way, as goes texas, as goes the united states. and so texas was leading the way here, black folks in texas. a lot of times they're left out of the civil rights history.
4:44 am
