tv Early Start With Christine Romans and Laura Jarrett CNN August 10, 2022 2:00am-2:59am PDT
than anyone else. call and start saving today. comcast business. powering possibilities. welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world. it is wednesday, august 10, i'm christine romans. new details this morning about the fbi search of donald trump's residence at mar-a-lago. a source tells cnn the certainly was authorized in part because officials believe the former president and his team had not returned all the material that belonged to the government and also that some of the documents had national security implications. the source says there were suspicions that trump representatives were into the being truthful with
investigators. for their part, they say trump's team will push the argument that he did not have classified information because he declassified it while still president. more now from jessica schneider in washington. >> reporter: new details about the fbi search of mar-a-lago are emerging as republican congressional leaders cry foul about the target and the timing. >> i know doing this 90 days before aen election reeks of politics. >> reporter: kevin mccarthy tweeting the department of justice has reached an intolerable state of weaponized politicization, warning about investigations if republicans take the house in november wri wri wri writing ag garland -- >> come and answer our questions about this action today which has never happened in american history. what was on the warrant, what were you really doing, what were you looking for, why not talk to president trump and have him give the information you are after? >> reporter: trump was in new york at trump tower when the
search began monday morning. his son eric said he alerted trump about what was unfolding in florida. >> the purpose of the raid from what they said is because the national archives wanted to coop corroborate whether or not touchdown had any documents in his possession and my father has worked so collaboratively for them for months and the lawyer was shocked. said i have such an amazing relationship with these people and no notice and they send 20 cars and 30 agents. >> reporter: national arrchives asked the justice department to investigate his handling of documents after they discovered that some of the presidential records had been torn up or contained classified information. sources say that the search was focused on trump's office and personal items at mar-a-lago and examining where records had been kept to make sure everything had been previously handed over to the archives. cnn has learned four federal
investigators visited mar-a-lago in early june. sources say trump's attorneys met with the investigators and took them to the basement room where boxes of material were stored. with the investigators later leaving. however a source says some of the documents had top secret markings and trump's attorneys later received a letter asking them to further secure the room where the documents were stored. >> i really don't believe that the department would have taken such a significant step as getting -- pursuing a search warrant for the president's residence about information that they already had back. there had to be a suspicion, a concern and indeed specific information that led them to believe that there were additional materials that were not turned over. >> reporter: trump releasing a lengthy statement, these are dark sometimes for our nation a beautiful home is currently under siege, raided and occupied by a large group of fbi agents. nothing like this has ever happened to a president of the united states before. also noting they even broke into
my safe. trump later called into a virtual rally for sarah palin where he referenced the raid again. >> that's right, another day in paradise, this was a strange day. >> reporter: and our team has learned trump was aware of federal investigators probing the potentially classified documents that he took to mar-a-lago. in fact trump interacted with investigators when they visited his florida home earlier this year and in april and may, aides to trump at mar-a-lago were actually interviewed by the fbi as part of this probe into the handling of presidential records. meanwhile so far there has been no comment from attorney general merrick garland or fbi director chris wray. jessica schneider, cnn, washington. let's bring in now david aaronburg, state attorney for palm beach county. so nice to see you. this is -- look, this is historic. first time in american history a former president's home is searched as part of a criminal investigation.
what is the legal peril the president is facing? >> he is facing potential jail time and also potential sanction that he would be barred from seeking office. so there is a lot at stake here. this is also a counterintelligence operation because the feds are very worried that the sensitive documents that he possessed involve national security because they would not go after him if it was just trinkets from kim jung-un. this is about more than that. and i know personally that the feds have been interested in chinese espionage because our office prosecuted a case a couple years ago where you had a trespasser who we couldn't charge with espionage, but she was trying to get into mar-a-lago. and it wasn't the first time someone tried to do it. so that is why the feds are really interested in these documents and the way that the former president is holding on to them. and that is also why they didn't send him a subpoena, they sent agents to retrieve these documents because they didn't trust him to respond to the subpoena the right way. >> what do you make of the
defense we're hearing from some republicans now that it couldn't have been classified information there because the president declassified it himself? >> well, it can't be retroactive. i know kash patel is the one saying this that he has the power to declassify power. and he did while he was president. but not as an ex-president. and that is the difference here. so i think they are trying to make a retroactivity argument. but we'll know soon enough because the feds took out 12 boxes of documents and we'll know through the inventory, which trump can release at anytime by the way, but he won't, what they took and whether they were indeed classified or declassified. >> also hearing from some republicans that they want to hear from merrick garland the attorney general, they want to hear more from the government about why, why this happened. what do you make of the strategy to remain silent if there is an investigation going on here? >> i love being a prosecutor, christine, but one of the drawbacks is that we have to remain silent during investigations. while the other side can run
their mouths with impunity. but if merrick garland decided to speak up, he could jeopardize the bhool investigation. you jeopardize your sources, you tip off targets and you allow a judge down the line to perhaps throw everything out because of due process concerns, because of concerns over getting a fair trial. we as prosecutors are not allowed to litigate cases in the press. especially before there has been a single charge. so mitch mcconnell and the others, they know better. they are just trying to poison the waters with this political stuff to say plarmerrick garlan knowing that they have a different set of rules. doj is doing the right thing, they need to stay quiet as much as possible to ensure that everyone gets a fair trial and the investigation continues. >> so separately, we've also learned that just hours from now, the former president will be deposed by new york's attorney general, this investigation is about the trump organization's finances. he could answer questions, he
could take the fifth. what would you advise him to do if you represented him? >> trump is in a pickle. there is a reason why he did not want to sit for this deposition because this is a civil case. so he can take the fifth, but if he does so, that creates a negative inference in any civil trial. so he is caught. and anything that he says can be used against him in the parallel criminal investigation in manhattan. that is the one that has been stalled. my counterpart d.a. alvin bragg sort of pushed it aside. but if trump says something, and he has a habit of saying things that could incriminate him, then the d.a. in manhattan could reignite the criminal case. and if you think the civil case isn't a big deal because it is just civil, ask ivanka and the trump foundation. their charitable foundation was shut down because of an action by attorney general tish james who is leading this investigation as well.

nice to see you. judge said on a train, bus, uber, the judge ordering mr. giuliani to appear in court. can they continue to delay an in-person court appearance at this point? >> yeah, yesterday's hearing with judge robert mcbyrney was interesting. giuliani while he does have a heart condition and just recently had surgery that would make it so that it might be difficult for him to travel according to his doctors, it doesn't mean that he can't come down here to atlanta to testify. he said that it is very important that any further delays are notified to him this week. he said he is not going to be interested in giuliani's lawyers potentially proposing that another delay happens monday or tuesday of next week given that he is sis slated to testify a w from today. they are interested in making sure that there is open
communication channels to say if there is any further issues that he is not going to tolerate a lack of communication or anymore explosive last minute delays or emergency motions like we saw this week. >> senator lindsey graham has said that he would fight the subpoena and denies any kind of meddling in the georgia election, saying that conversations he had with the secretary of state was what you do as a member of congress, protected by the nature of his job. does that hold, do you think fulton county has made any real head way in this investigation? >> the things that we already though about gabout graham's ca is from graham himself and the people he made the calls to. in the court filings, while graham was inquiring about georgia's absentee ballot requirements and policies around election administration in 2020, they showed from their own inquiry with georgia secretary of state that he felt pressured by graham at the time to
potentially find some new outcome or some change in policy. he did not see the situation basically the same way that graham was describing it in his own court filings. so that will be a very interesting case to see that if this is actually -- was actually in his capacity as a senator whether that holds up in both federal court and potentially state court here into n. atlanta if he is required to testify. >> more on those conversations about trying to find ballots to -- mail-in ballots to disqualify so that the election tips there in trump's favor. that is what they are really looking into. the d.a. in this case fani willis has been accused of conducting a politicized inquiry here. do you think that she's ruled out calling trump as a witness, is he the ultimate goal here in terms of the final word? >> it is very clear that willis' team is getting closer and closer to trump's inner most circle. when you are subpoenaing the president's former lawyer, that means that you are really interested in both his direct
actions and his communications going into january 6 and prior after the 2020 election. we actually know from our own reporting here at the "washington post" that the district attorney's office has been requiring about connections between the trump white house, trump campaign, and their orders to state level republicans on the ground. that is the line of inquiry that really does show that it will feed its way back up to trump if they are successful in making the legal argument that he was ultimately the mastermind behind the plan to overturn the 2020 election here in georgia and it will be interesting to see if what -- to what degree that they are able to prove that or find the communications between trump, his lawyers and state republicans who were down here constituted pressure to overturn election results or to cause election interference which is actually a crime here in georgia. >> matt brown, so nice to see you this morning. thank you. a separate development in the multiple investigations involving the former president.
a federal appeals court app approving a request by the house ways and means committee to obtain the former tax returns. the ruling is a blow to trump and his argument that the request was retaliation by house democrats making it invalid. it stems from a lawsuit first filed in 2019. and mississippi grand jury deciding whether to indict the white woman whose accusations led to the lynching of emmett till. first cnn on the ground in the last holdout for the ukraine community. >> my house. my house. >> but it is so dangerous. there is bombs and explosions and -- and now we're providing 88 billion dollars to support undnderserved communities... ...helping us all move forward financially. pnc bank: see e how we can make a difference for you.

possibly. he was discovered driving toward texas. investigators say that he was arrested in the city of santa rosa. and this happened just as investigators began searching -- executing a search warrant at their home. in a surreal scene just hours before the announcement, we were inside muhammad syed's home speaking with his family and his daughter telling us that about an hour before police arrived, he said that he was going to drive to texas, that he had plans of moving his family there. they told us that despite all of this and what police are saying they do not believe that their father is responsible for these murders. but despite that, investigators here insist that muhammad syed is the prime suspect and that they can link him to right now at least two of these four murders. back to you. >> thank you for that ed. no major u.s. city is seen as immune to homelessness which spiked during the pandemic. several states are tare now considering new tactics to clean up tent cities but tennessee is

>> we have no influence except the power of persuasion. we're saying that here seems to be a better idea. we know what is not working. >> reporter: something called housing first has become the primary approach to tackling homelessness, get someone an actual home, not a shelter bed, offer but don't mandate addiction treatment, and the rest should follow. many studies support the approach. cicero does not. >> we don't have decades to wait to build up brand new houses to every one of those people. we need a solution that is angtsiangts i acting right now. >> reporter: he's addressed lawmakers in tennessee and in georgia. >> we can offer you alternative, but you have to move. you need the stick and carrot. >> reporter: and in a nashville suburb -- i can see the issue. >> you haven't seen anything yet. >> reporter: and this is what becky lowe's local park now looks like. >> nothing has been working. nothing has worked. >> reporter: she now supports the stick approach, the threat

let's get a check on cnn business this wednesday morning. looking at markets around the world, asian shares closed lower. europe has opened very narrowly mixed, i'd call that flat. and on wall street, stock index futures are leaning up a little bit. tuesday was a down day for stocks. three down days in a row, all the major averages down but not that much really. investors are waiting critical inflation news later this morning. elon musk is back in the news, this time for selling nearly 8 million shares of tesla stock. the stock sale worth almost $7 billion. the world's richest man raising cash in case he loses his fight to back out of buying twitter telling his followers it is important to avoid an emergency sale of tesla stock. shares have fallen almost 20% this year alone.

almost there at that $4 a gallon mark. it has been such a swift decline since those highs above five bucks in march. do you expect gas prices to continue to fall? >> good morning, christine. yeah, i do. look, 9% inflation, these are zimbabwe numbers. this is unsustainable and the supply chain is catching up in many ways, not just oil and gas, but everywhere. and we've seen like i said drivers drive a little bit less and that always -- you know, when you chop demand even a little bit at the crazy prices we've seen for gas, you are going to see prices go down. so, yeah, i tend to see them moderate a bit more, but i wouldn't get comfortable, i wouldn't say that drivers will see $3 gas again anytime soon. still have a tremendous crisis, energy crisis, going on in europe and that is really affecting the global supply chain. >> hard to get too comfortable when you are heading in to a hurricane season. that can tend to cause
uncertainty as well. so moderating gas prices. you talked about the demand side where consumers are looking at the two cars in their driveway and choosing the more energy official one to drive, leave the suv, take the small car to the grocery store. but there is also supply side here as well a little bit. you saw around the world governments starting to tap into their petroleum reserves and we've seen the opec+ nations slowly raise production. is that part of the story? >> it is slightly the story. i think that it is much more about the supply chain catching up. in many way what's pe 's is op when joe biden asked for more barrels was not give a very positive response. they have been doing increases of about 400,000 barrels to meet the demand that has been coming in. and they say that they are trying to hold off and keep sort of their powder dry for the wintertime when the real crisis
is going to hit. but i really don't think that that is what is going on here. in many ways the saudis, opec and the u.s. oil companies really like the heavy profits they have gotten in the last quarter which were the best ever. >> yeah, those profit numbers pretty stunning and causing a lot of i think political pain. >> yeah, a lot of crying on both sides of the aisle. >> so let's talk about inflation overall. you've seen the gas prices come down. but still people are feeling the pinch from inflation in their family budget up and down including rent. gas prices coming down, but rent and food and all kinds of other things have not been coming down. what are your inflation expectations here? >> again, you know, i really believe that some of the numbers in inflation -- this was a tremendous oneoff in terms of the pandemic and supply chain difficulties. and the numbers that we've seen on inflation were just insane. they are end of days type of inflation numbers, like i say
zimbabwe type numbers. 9%, never seen anything like this. that is not really sustainable. should see some balance of supply chain getting back into the swing of things again with consumers spending a little bit less because prices are so high. i do expect that to mad rate through the rest of the summer. but again, these are very, very systemic problems inside the economy right now and we are headed into probably into a recession because of it. >> and what the economy has been through over the past 2 1/2 years, it is almost -- just almost unbelievable. i mean, you talk about the reset -- >> apocalyptic. >> absolutely. but i have been watching some commodity prices coming down, oil prices coming down a little bit. so maybe the boil is off at least? >> i think that what we're going to take a break here, in many ways i think that there is unfortunate super cycle happening in oil where we're going to see fossil fuels go up over the course of the next two or three years. but they did get well ahead of their skis.
$120 prices for oil this early in the cycle i think was well past where they should have been at this point. so they are moderating to a level at which i think that they should be at this point in the cycle, but again, i don't want consumers to get too excited about that. i think that over the long haul we're still headed for higher prices both with oil, gas and gasoline that you put in your tanks. >> dan dicker, thanks for giving us your perspective. >> you bet. we'll have more on gas prices and also the frustrating flight cancellations all over the u.s. transportation secretary pete buttigieg joins "new day" live. and d new after the investigatioion of donald trump mar-a-lago compound. ole lolot og with farmers policy perks.
