tv   Early Start With Christine Romans and Laura Jarrett  CNN  August 24, 2022 2:00am-2:59am PDT

2:00 am
sfla gflorida governor desantis challenger. can crist derail him in the fall. and two democrats fighting for one house seat in new york. >> welcome on to our viewers, it is wednesday, august 24th, i'm omar jimenez with the one and only christine romans. >> nice to see you this week. early bird gets the worm. crist is now facing the colossal
2:01 am
challenge of taking on desantis in the fall. and the florida senate race now has its final match-up. val demings is facing off against marco rubio. a race the gop believe has it can win easily. but also where democrats have been widely outspending republicans and think that they have a chance to flip the state blue. >> also big night in new york, two powerful democrats capping off a highly competitive race. cnn projects jerry nadler will unseat carolyn maloney. redistricts forced them into the same districts with the nastier primary races of the year. and pat ryan beating the republican in a swing district. and so let's bring in cnn political analyst jackie kucinich, washington bureau chief for t"the daily beast." so much to talk about. >> so jackie, in florida
2:02 am
democrat charlie crist won his primary and will face off with governor desantis in november. crist is a former governor of course and former republican. is his past experience and name recognition enough to knock off the gop powerhouse like desantis? >> it will be a tough uphill battle. democrat fortunes statewide have been a bit mixed and challenging over the past year. crist hasn't been the governor since he served in 2006. and has had a mixed record of -- a record running statewide himself. that said, he is a prolific fundraiser. he is someone that as you noted has very wide name recognition. but taking on desantis really is -- i mean, he hit a tough primary, and now it gets even tougher. >> and as you mentioned, so many races talk about. jerry nadler winning over carolyn maloney.
2:03 am
but of course it became a nasty battle from what many people saw as two similars. what what was the biggest factor here? >> these two individuals, they are both powerful members, not a lot different about them in terms of their record. but it really got nasty in the final days with carolyn maloney questioning nadler's competent sense i, whether he is senile on camera. and so it really did devolve. but nadly is someone that they really campaigned hard, laid the ground work here. and ultimately won. in this very liberal district, malone any couldn't get over the line. >> and fighting out have we little daylight between their
2:04 am
ideologies, but that is how it goes i guess. and democrat pat ryan won a special election. molnaro was expected to win in a district that narrowly went for biden in 2020. and so what role did abortion and the roe decision have in this race and it kind of up ends some of the conventional wisdom about midterms there. >> sure. this was a race that i think a lot of us were watching to see what potentially democratic fortunes could look like, someone who is using the abortion issue a lot throughout the campaign. and it turns out it actually worked out for him. as you mentioned, this was obama, and then trump, and then biden, and it was a very, very narrow margin. so i think that you will have o ryan's playbook and seeing how
2:05 am
it can be applied in the general elections. >> thanks for getting up early for us. and back down in florida, a federal judge is now giving former president trump's legal team until friday to refine their legal arguments. and the judge means explain why they are requesting a special master to oversee the evidence that was seized in the mar-a-lago search. the judge is also asking trump's lawyers to clarify why they believe the court even has the ability to step in. and so joining us here this morning, criminal defense attorney and former federal prosecutor. so andrew, the court is criticizing the nature of trump's motion because of legal deficiencies. the main question here, how could they possibly refine their argument by this friday, not to mention we're still waiting on a deadline for the potential unsealment of the fbi search affidavit which maybe it would have been affected if filed early? >> i think what we're waiting for is information about the
2:06 am
affidavit, what will we see about it, is it going to be able to tell us anything. i think that people on both sides of the oil want to know everything that they can possibly know about what is in there. it will come in dribs and drabs and it will be a long time before we have a good idea of all the evidence that supports that affidavit. tr trump's filings have shown that he is struggling with his legal team. the court responded showing they deficiencies in the filings so i think that they are trying to be creative in their legal approach to say it nicely. i don't think that they have a lot to go on in erms terms of asking for what they are asking for. they are asking for an external resource to review everything that is going on. not unprecedented, but an uphill battle. >> and you have the media, the public, the congress wondering what was in the documents and the damage potential. and we know that the national archives sought to share the
2:07 am
classified documents that have been taken from mar-a-lago earlier this year with the intel community months ago. what does that tell you? >> it tells me that it is really important to them and i think that that is what we have to look at in everything that is going on right now, is that the fbi and doj in going to mar-a-lago is communicating very clearly that this is something very serious and something that could have an impact on national security. on the other side, donald trump is saying that he had the right all along to declassify these documents and maintain possession of those documents and so i think ultimately that is going to be the battle. did the former president while he was sitting in office haves right to take these documents and effectively turn them into nonclassified documents so that key keep them for his own presidential documents and his own historical motivations. >> and this time of year, it is almost hard to ignore the politics backdrop of things. obviously this is a strictly legal -- these are strictly legal proceedings. but when you step back for a
2:08 am
second, do you think that this will end up as a maga versus the world sort of momentum leading up to any potential presidential announcement by president trump? >> i think that it of course is going to. the doj has a relatively strict policy of not conducting political style investigations close to elections. there is approaching that season and i think that there is going to be an impact on it. frankly, i think those who believe in donald trump and believe in the maga type of policies will also think that there is some sort of conspiracy or injustice sis going on justi types of investigations. and so we have to hope that the courts can instill confidence in the public that they are going about this potential prosecution fairly and through a process that is dig nid filed of a former president. >> certainly the former president using it to fund raise
2:09 am
and also using it to continue the narrative that they are out to get him, another witch hunt. andrew, nice to see you. >> nice to see you in person this morning early. just ahead on "early start," we have a lot to talk about this morning. six months of a bloody war, hard to believe, and ukraine is bracing for a russian onslaught. and big news coming today for americans burdened by student loan debt.

security package of up to about $3 billion. david mckenzie is live in keefe otherwise for us. and a powerful message from the president and symbolic show behind you of strength. tell us about that. >> reporter: it is extraordinary. i counted some 30 tanks, an artillery pieces, heavy firepower that russia lost already during this war. and this is an important anniversary of ukrainians. they told people to stay away because of the threat of possible strikes but they couldn't keep them away. and you look at the messages that are scrolled on these tanks from earlier on in this conflict, six months of fighting between russia and ukraine, at least 9,000 ukrainian soldiers killed according to the ministry of defense this week. it tells you the intense impact this has had on ukraine. and if you look here, ukrainian official said, well, the russians wanted to have a parade
2:15 am
in the center of kyiv when they won the war, so they gave them one. all of these burnt up tanks, artillery pieces, it is a powerful message about the restilre resilience of ukraine even with the threat of those strikes in the last 24, 48 hours. president zelenskyy was near to the spot where i was standing, released a speech a short time ago, an emotional plea for ukrainians to stand fast. >> translator: we're holding on for six months. it is difficult for us. but we dlenched ou eventual w clenched our fists. every new day is a reason because having gone for so much, we have no right not to reach the end. what is the end of the war for us? we used to say peace. now we say victory.
2:16 am
all right >> reporter: i asked the president whether the world will get fatigued as they defend the line that hasn't moved for many weeks. but he said that people need to re remember the plight of ukrainians and that the $3 billion that will announced later today is something that they appreciate because they are still fighting this on the front, the northeast and the south. they have paid dearly for this war of choice by russia, but ukrainians say this they will fight on. >> powerful images. thank, david. elsewhere, president biden ordering airstrikes in syria after they attacked a base last

2:18 am
united states base in syria and along the iraqi border, important for the u.s. troops and their allies, that base was struck by multiple rockets. no damage, no injury, no killed in that august 15th fattack. and the attack early hours of this morning, it does not seem that those bunkers had anything to do with the august 159 th attack, but the message from the united states is clear. you cannot attack u.s. personnel on the ground without expecting repercussions. but as understand, this has wide reaching implications far beyond the battle field. for months now the united states and allies have been trying to revive the all-important nuclear deal. now the question is with the fit f tit for tat attacks, does it falter the efforts. >> a complicated battlefield. thank you for laying that out for us salma abdelaziz.

2:32 am
the best person to beat ron desantis and they said that that person is charlie crist. democrats had a chance to nominate nicky freed who would have been if she won the first female governor in the state history and really had a direct path to making this race on a referendum on the future of abortion access. instead they went with charlie cr crist, a former republican, once called himself pro-life. and so they are really hoping that voters find comfort in a familiar face. you know, charlie is someone who a lot of people talk to that some people trust, that they think that moderate voters will find offensive. and if you ever walk the street with charlie crist, he is someone who everyone seems to know. people shout out hey charlie. and he has been around a long time. and he will be running as sort of joe biden playbook of
2:33 am
promising to be a consensus builder, be a familiar face. and really bring civility back to politics at a time when the rhetoric has gotten so divisive here. but notably the joe biden playbook did not work in florida. trump won here in 2016 and then in 2020 by an even larger far begin. and crist himself hasn't won in 2006. he ran as an independent as lost. and he was the democratic nominee in 2014 and came up short. and now he just has 11 weeks to put up a fight against ron desantis and $132 million that will be used to run a whole bunch of ads. so he will have to work closely i think with the senate nominee va val demings who has brought a

2:36 am
because last week which was last wednesday i believe, i went to peru, illinois and they have my son's car which is a vital piece of evidence. and they said that they move -- i requested to see his car. and they were -- they told me before i got there that they were going to warn me that his car was outside. when i get there, they tell me that they placed his car outside, it has been outside for at least three weeks because they had no storage room in their evidence storage area. when i get there, i see his car under a tarp. and when they open the door, evidence is just all in jelani's car. there is papers on the seat, money on the bacco or
2:37 am
weed on the seat, there is shorts, shoes, the same suitcase that when they pulled this car from down that hill that it was at the at ymca, all that stuff is still in his car. articles ins back of the trunk that are still in his car. they tell me -- like i told them, i'm not the smartest civilian and i'm no miss officer, but when you have a piece of evidence, shouldn't that -- shouldn't the articles inside that evidence, should they be tagged, labeled, numbered and placed in the report so if they need to refer back in an investigation, they have that? they don't have that in jenani's case. they told me that they took out a -- what do you call it? a sip sample where when enthey

2:49 am
it so close to midterms. we have a 3.5% unemployment rate and so certainly hard to just guy when people were being thrown out of their jobs and had an uncertain future. and then there is the issue raised by some as to whether it is putting a band-aid on a broken system. the fact that it is so easy to quaufr regar rauf qualify regardless. you could be going to fharvard r a private college that lured you into signing up for a degree and the underwriting terms are the same. college is just plain expensive stoked by the easy availability of loans. and so that is the elephant in the room that i would not expect to be addressed between new and
2:50 am
midterms. >> and there is an underlying fundamental mismatch. and you got to fix that problem too. this is a band aid on a broken system is a great way to put it. but they will be handing out band aids for sure. let's talk about the housing mar can ke market quickly. are we seeing the fed's medicine working here? >> we are in part. housing is such a big part of the economy. the danger is that the medicine has nasty side effects and it puts the mousing e ie ing housi into recession. mortgage rights have eased off housing market into recession. mortgage rights have eased off somewhat. but they are higher than at the lows. first of all, afford ability is far, far tougher. so you went from having in the suburbs at least all around this country lines around the corner every time there was an openhouse to sort of crickets,
2:51 am
