tv   CNN Newsroom With Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto  CNN  September 5, 2022 6:00am-7:00am PDT

6:00 am
good monday morning. i'm erica hill in for jim and poppy today. thank you for joining me on this holiday issue. president biden hitting the road with stops in two key states. he'll head to milwaukee, wisconsin, and then back to pennsylvania on the heels of
6:01 am
former president donald trump's rally in the keystone state where he lashed out again at the fbi over the search of his mar-a-lago home calling agents vicious monsters and labeling president biden an enemy of the state. one congresswoman, also a member of the january 6th committee, said the former president's remarks are also potentially incitement. meantime, one of the busiest travel weekends of the year lives up to the billing. hundreds of flight delays, thousands of cancellations as more than 12 million americans to travel over the labor day weekend. let's head to milwaukee with omar jimenez is expecting president biden's arrival there today. what can we expect in terms of the president's message? >> reporter: it's labor day in america and the white house says president biden will be celebrating the dignity of american workers when he gets here to milwaukee. labor day marks the unofficial start to crunch time leading up to election day. this is a state that president
6:02 am
biden carried by just a little more than 20,000 votes back in the 2020 election. when he gets here, the stakes of the senate on the line will likely be felt as part of his speech. we have a tightly contested senate race, of course, going on here in the state between lieutenant governor mandela barnes and incumbent ron johnson. it's unclear if barnes will appear or meet with president biden today, but we do expect to see wisconsin governor meet with president biden. evers in his own race to get re-elected in the state, of course. president biden will be speaking at labor fest, a festival put on by the unions here in milwaukee. he won't just be here today, of course. he has a busy day ahead. he is expected to depart from here around 10:00 a.m. this morning and with remarks scheduled around 12:15 local time. he'll then head to pittsburgh around 1:40, which will end in another speech at 5:30 before he heads back to washington. while he's in pennsylvania, he's expected to meet with john
6:03 am
fetterman, who's going for senate in the state along with josh shapiro, the democratic gubernatorial candidate there as well. that will be his third time in pennsylvania in less than a week. obviously, trying to really make a point and be part of what is the beginning of the final push before an election day, that will be here before we know it, erica. >> certainly will. buckle up, omar. good to see you this morning. joining me to discuss, associated press white house court. nice to see you both this morning. i thought it was interesting, as omar point out, it's not clear whether lieutenant governor barnes will be appearing or meeting with president biden today. we've started to see a slight uptick in his approval ratings. 42% right now in this average of polls. we've also been hearing this more forceful, i would say, message from the president. he is really owning this threat
6:04 am
to democracy. is this making president biden more welcome on the campaign trail for some of these democratic candidates? >> well, certainly there's been an uptick. i found it really interesting that wisconsin governor tony evers is going to be with president biden later today. we knew earlier this summer when the white house was potentially planning a visit to wisconsin that tony evers didn't exactly want to be there. i will point out when president biden goes to ohio later this week, another interesting political state in this midterm season, tim ryan, the democratic candidate, will be present there as well. there is definitely a warming of sorts for candidates toward president biden. i think that is definitely related to two things. first of all, the string of legislative accomplishments we've seen from president biden over the last several weeks gave him a little extra pep in his step, making democrats feel better about the midterms this fall, and the more forceful rhetoric we've seen from president biden in the last several days. it's really that kind of posture is certainly what some
6:05 am
democratic -- some democrats have wanted to see more of from president biden in recent days and weeks. >> we'll see if that gets him more invitations or if we see him with more people out there on the trail. it's interesting, he's making his way back to pennsylvania today. former president trump was there over the weekend where he was supposed to be stumping. the speech was a little more focused on other things. here's specifically what he had to say in terms of president biden. >> he's an enemy of the state. you want to know the truth. the enemy of the state is him and the group that control him, which is circling around him, do this, do that. joe, you're going to do this. i think philadelphia was a great choice to make this speech of hatred and anger. his speech was hatred and anger. >> continuing to attack the fbi in that speech. continued airing of grievances in terms of a message. i wonder is that losing steam at
6:06 am
this point? >> well, for president trump's most faithful supporter, that red meat continues to be something they're yearning for. they continue to be very animated by his rhetoric and the fact he's willing to say things that no former president would say, calling a current president an enemy of the state. when it comes to the broader electorate, the moderate voters, the people who turned away from president trump in 2020, it's not clear that rhetoric will bring people back. president biden has a job to do. his poll numbers are still under water with independent voters. he's trying to make this a stark choice between that kind of rhetoric from the former president, which is very angry and incendiary, and the kind of normalcy that he promised to bring back. that president joe biden promised to bring back, by making it a stark choice between those threatening democracy, threatening normalcy and the current presidency trying to bring back a sense of normalcy to the country. >> when we look at where we're
6:07 am
at, and let's focus specifically on pen nsylvania. when we look at the senate race, there's so much snarky back and forth. that's what we see on a national level. but on the ground there, are voters in pennsylvania actually getting a good sense of who these candidates are or is that snarkiness overshadowing everything? >> well, i think a lot of it on a national level it's been a campaign of trolling, particularly on -- you know, john fetterman's campaign has been very much pushing the fact that dr. oz is not from pennsylvania, that he's actually a new jersey resident, he's kind of this quack doctor that made his gains -- that made his riches that way. if you talk to voters on the ground and you talk to what really matters, i think they'll tell you what matters is what, you know, voters across the country are saying. obviously, abortion is a largely motivating factor in that race, in the governor's race as well. the economy and inflation
6:08 am
remains a major issue. i think this is why the debate over debates in the pennsylvania senate race has gotten a lot of attention. it's the feature of every competitive race but it is because we haven't heard the issues aired out from these candidates for a very long time. i think there's going to be pressure to -- on both sides to hear more of their views pretty soon. >> when we look at -- we're also focused today on wisconsin, that's the president's first stop. there is all this focus on pennsylvania, but i wonder in a number of respects, is wisconsin actually a better barometer at the moment? >> wisconsin was a closer race in 2020, as omar said. president biden only won by about 20,000 votes there. it is a very tight state where we do see reflections of some of the different debates we see across the country. issues like abortion, issues like inflation, education are all going to be on the ballot there in wisconsin. it's going to be a tight race because you do have a republican
6:09 am
incumbent who has been in favor of what we saw from the former president and has tried to moderate himself in some ways. but it's very clear that some of the things we're seeing nationwide are going to be on the ballot in wisconsin. you do have this question of whether or not president biden is popular enough in wisconsin to have the senate candidate show up with him when he campaigns there later today. >> good to see you both today. thank you. a bit of a rough weekend for some holiday travelers. you may be one of them. since friday, more than 500 flights have been canceled across the country. more than 12,000 delayed. cnn's aviation correspondent pete muntean is at reagan international airport. fun fact, he lives there. a lot of people trying to get back home. in general, how is travel looking today? >> reporter: i don't look here, although i have asked about office space. today, so far, so good, erica.
6:10 am
we just checked flightaware, 612 delays, 62 cancellations so far. but the day is still pretty young. consider the fact that just last week, on last tuesday, barely a week ago, we saw 800 cancellations in a day. so when you consider this entire weekend, the worst day was yesterday, 210 cancellations, that's about a quarter of the worst day of last week. just checked on faa-imposed delays around the country. right now there is only one and it's a very minor departure delay. pretty good if you're traveling today. passengers remain relatively undaunted. the tsa said it screened 2.3 million people on thursday. what's interesting about that number is it's actually about 200,000 people more than the same day back in 2019, before the pandemic. we have to put this all into context.
6:11 am
this summer has been really bad for airlines. they've been struggling with staffing shortages. 45,000 cancellations by u.s. carriers in total since june 1st. what is so interesting is now that this rush begins for many people coming home, the department of transportation has posted a dashboard online showing you what you are entitled to in the case of a cancellation or delay. what's really interesting about that, erica, in many cases the airlines have rewritten the fine print attached to your ticket and in some cases have improved the policies, making it easier for you to get a meal or hotel voucher, erica. >> i would say those are great developments. always great to see you, pete, thank you. still to come, liz truss will replace boris johnson as britain's prime minister. what does it mean for the united states? a manhunt for two suspects that police believe are responsible for a stabbing spree that left at least ten dead.

6:16 am
conservative party has decided the next prime minister, liz truss. this comes as britain is facing a dire economic outlook, especially heading into the winter because of a severe cost of living crisis triggered by soaring energy bills and a looming recession. joining us now, cnn international diplomatic reporter nic robertson, who's at downing street. walk us through how and when all this happens and what it really means. >> reporter: the next step, liz truss will go to scotland
6:17 am
tomorrow, balmoral, to see the queen. she will have seen boris johnson who gave his resignation. she'll come back here and give a speech from downing street later tomorrow afternoon. that's when it gets real. she's already got an outline of what a cabinet could be, but she'll be appointing key cabinet positions, who gets to be foreign secretary filling in for her, who gets to run the economy in the country from the chancellor, who will be at the home office, she'll be doing those jobs. what she said she's going to make very clear is she's made very clear already is she will be cutting taxes. she is expected and said she will give a speech within the first week about how she is going to handle this energy crisis in the country. the expectation is she will borrow to keep those costs down. economists in the uk are concerned that that could ultimately lead to inflation, but she thinks that will encourage businesses to grow. that's her broad plan.
6:18 am
but she was very con dgratulato for boris johnson, the outgoing prime minister. >> boris, you got brexit done. you crushed jeremy corbyn. you rolled out the vaccine and you stood up to vladimir putin. you are admired from kyiv to carlisle. [ applause ] >> reporter: a couple of things in that that the british audience will jeremy corbin, the leader of the opposition. the other interesting thing that gave an indication of one of the many problems she faces domestically here in the uk, not just a fractured party but a fractured country. she said boris johnson was popular from kyiv to carlisle, carlisle is the northernmost border town in england with scotland. the conservatives are not
6:19 am
popular in scotland. in fact, the scottish people are pushing to have another independence referendum. that's another challenge liz truss will face very quickly. a raft of domestic, economic and political challenges ahead for her. >> we know you'll be continuing to break it all down for us. appreciate it. right man two men accused of stabbing and killing ten people are on the run. police launching a man run. police say the men injured at least 15 people sunday. we're talking about multiple crime scenes in saskatchewan. the suspect is 31-year-old damien sanderson and 30-year-old myles sanderson, both described as armed and dangerous. cnn's paula newton joining us live from ottawa with more. what more do we know about these suspects and also the victims? >> reporter: yeah, at this hour still such troubling information. the information we do have. imagine, it's now been more than 24 hours.
6:20 am
police seem no closer to tracking down these two suspects, which as you said, are still armed and dangerous. chilling to think how long this crime spree police say went on. it was hours. can you imagine, erica, those who were injured were, in fact, trying to take themselves to hospital and medical clinics. police are also asking those victims to come forward. they believe there are more. key here, though, is that they don't seem to have much information about motive. they say some of the attacks were targeted, others were, in fact, random. and this goes to the point that police in several jurisdictions now asking anyone who has any information to come forward. they are believed to have been on the run for several hours, possibly in a black suv. what's so troubling here is police are trying to wonder, how are they going to end this without any more blood shed, given, as you said, these are incredibly dangerous suspects and could be anywhere. really an area covering thousands of miles. i also want to point out that,
6:21 am
in fact, prime minister justin trudeau did issue a statement saying they were -- that i am shocked and devastated by the horrific attacks in james smith cree nation and saskatchewan that claimed the lives of ten people and many more. as canadians we mourn with the victims of this tragedy. this started in a close-knit indigenous community of a few hundred people and went to a neighboring community of, again, a few hundred people. hard to know what went on there, especially given, you know, law enforcement there might have been behind the eight-ball from the beginning. trying to piece together so many crime scenes and so many acts of violence. >> it does complicate it, paula. thank you. surveillance cameras captured the moment a memphis man forced a teacher into an suv. the latest on trying to find

at this hour, memphis police are searching for a 4-year-old mother and teacher who was abducted while jogging. eliza fletcher was shown on video being forced into an suv. cleotha abston has been charged with her kidnapping. gary tuchman joins me from memphis. gary, what led to this arrest?
6:27 am
>> reporter: well, first of all, i will tell you, erica, we don't know what happened to eliza fletcher. that's the most important thing. there is grave concern. we can tell you that police say the man they've arrested for her kidnapping is not talking. this all happened three mornings ago right wherer with standing, next to the university of memphis campus. there's a surveillance camera to my right that captured all of this. it shows a man in a black suv. he comes out of the suv, grabs a woman jogging here, struggles with her, brings her to the suv, drives into the parking lot where we are standing, parks for four minutes and takes off. according to court records, police say at the very least they believe she suffered serious injury. according to an affidavit, u.s. marshals located the same suv at the suspect's house later in the day. they also interviewed a witness earlier, a witness who said she saw the suspect in the same vehicle. according to the police, the quote was, she stated that she
6:28 am
saw cleotha abston cleaning the interior of the gmc terrain with floor cleaner and stated he was behaving oddly. local media say they've talked to the da's office and we've seen the court cases that indicate this man in 2000 was arrested for kidnapping. the man he kidnapped, a local attorney who later escaped. either way, he went to prison for 20 years, this suspect. he just got out november 2020, a year and a half ago. we can tell you that according to the people we have been talking to, there is hope. the family and friends hope their loved one is still alive, but they are so distressed, as you might understand and they're reaching out for any kind of help they can get. >> she's a teacher and she has two young boys that, obviously, we're worried about. just great lady. really the best mom. >> more than anything, we want to see liza returned home
6:29 am
safely. the family has offered a reward for any information that leads to her safe return. we believe someone knows what happened and can help. >> reporter: the search for this wife, mother of two and a pre-k teacher continues today. erica? >> gary, important updates. appreciate it. thank you. gun violence, perhaps not surprisingly, marring the holiday weekend across the country. take a look at this video from new york. as you watch this, maybe it feels a bit like a movie scene. it's not. a witness videoed this chaotic car chase and robbery. martin savidge has the details. >> reporter: a car chase and robbery caught on camera. in a video obtained by law enforcement in new york, a car crashes into this silver suv on a busy street in manhattan saturday afternoon. >> he's got a gun! >> reporter: a man emerges and
6:30 am
approaches the suv wielding a firearm. the victim reported that $20,000 was taken, but law enforcement says there are some inconsistencies with the amount. in virginia seven people were shot in norfolk after a fight broke out at a house party early sunday morning. >> the preliminary investigation reveals there had been a party at that location that had been advertised on social media. apparently a fight broke out at the party. once the fight started, then somebody pulled out a gun and started shooting. >> reporter: 25-year-old zabre miller and angelia mcknight were shot and killed. several of the victims were students, including mcknight, a second year pre-nursing student from new york. the university's president writes her life is important and every spartan is a key member of our campus. we will continue to work together. >> violence has no place in the city of norfolk.

6:32 am
day, according to cnn affiliate wjla. >> i heard that in one of the movie theaters, they had said, you all are going to die, which caused the crowds to flee. >> of course, the holiday weekend isn't over yet. today the focus of law enforcement will shift somewhat to the roads and highways as millions of americans begin the journey back home. erica? >> martin savidge for us. thank you. former president trump blasting the fbi as monsters for searching his mar-a-lago resort. now he's being accused of potentially inciting violence again. we'll discuss next.

6:38 am
>> one january 6th committee member told cnn trump's attacks on the fbi potentially amount to incitement. take a listen. >> we've seen that sometimes that rhetoric reaches people who are prepared to act on it. for example, the fellow who was killed when he tried to attack the fbi agents in ohio. so, this is not responsible, and the ex-president ought to stop it. >> joining me now to discuss, david priest, former fbi intelligence officer. and presidential historian douglas brinkley with me as well. nice to see you both on this monday morning. david, when we hear that reaction from zoe lofgren saying trump's continued attacks could
6:39 am
amount to incitement, is there any real legal danger for him corrected to that rhetoric? >> yeah, there is if people take action based on his words. that's a lot of what the january 6th committee is investigating regarding that incident. but if there are people inspired directly by this and cite this as a reason why they take action, for example, some violence against the fbi as we saw in ohio a few weeks ago, then there is a potential threat. the bigger threat is just the overall political environment. at a time when the former president should be explaining how it's possible there were all these classified information documents inside his residence, instead of explaining that, he is going on the offensive and taking on people like he calls the radical left leadership of the fbi, forgetting he appointed the director himself. that's a losing argument for him politically except with a very small base. it does put him in some legal jeopardy but i think the bigger
6:40 am
fear at this point is simply that he is not bothering to defend himself of some very, very serious charges. >> it's interesting, too, when we look at where things stand in this country, right? we can all feel on a daily basis how divided it is. yet what i was struck by is a new cbs news/ugov poll that found 65% of americans think political violence will only rise in the coming years. that's actually up 10% from december of last year. 80% of americans believe the country is more divided now than it was during their parents' generation. when you look at those numbers, when you look at this most recent polling, what do you make of that? >> it's what a sad state we're in right now. how democracy is in peril and we all must act and vote and be engaged. listening to donald trump's speech, that was joe mccarthy on steroids. it used to be a big deal in the 1950s if mccarthy would intimate some name on my list as a communist and now we have a
6:41 am
president -- a former president of the united states demonizing the fbi in such a grotesque fashion. and with the mar-a-lago incideinc incident, i mean, imagine what the intelligence community is thinking about right now. 45 empty folders of highly classified information, nobody knows where those documents are and what was in them and and then we find out at mar-a-lago it's been a revolving door of quasi nefarious characters coming in since trump left the white house. it's a huge crisis going on and let's hope the justice department can kind of keep trump accountable for what he has done with these documents. >> as we wait to hear from the judge as to whether or not a special master will be appointed, i was really struck, as a number of people were, by the comments we heard from former attorney general bill barr starting on friday
6:42 am
afternoon, who was pretty clear where he stands right now when it comes to these documents that were at mar-a-lago. take a listen. >> i have a legitimate reason why they could be taken out of the government, away from the government. if they're classified. i think the driver on this from the beginning was, you know, loads of classified information sitting in mar-a-lago. people say this was unprecedented. it's also unprecedented for a president to take all this classified information and put them in a country club, okay? >> david, talk about a big change in terms of what we're hearing from bill barr now, and he was very forceful throughout that interview in terms of what he thinks about this raid, those documents being there. not mincing words. how much do you think that message is getting through? >> i don't think it's getting through to the former president, that's for sure. he's already written off bill barr. but bill barr did work at the cia earlier in his career, so he
6:43 am
probably has a better personal understanding of the nature of these classified documents than a lot of the other president's supporters or some of his lawyers who have never worked with this material before. there's also the factor that some things are almost impossible to excuse. yes, we could have said that about many things in the past. bill barr also was not a fan of what happened on january 6th. but in this case, if you look at the affidavit that went to the judge who authorized the search and seizure, if you look at the government's filings in the special master case, this is not a close call. this is not a matter of fine legal judgment. there is essentially no case for the former president because all of these records are presidential records and as the former president, he has no title or right to possess them. so, the former attorney general of the united states, no matter how politicized he was on some issues, he cannot look at those documents and make any possible case in support of the former president's arguments, such as they are. this is where we are.
6:44 am
>> as we wait for the special master, bill barr said he thought the whole idea was a red herring, a waste of time. i was speaking with somebody about this on friday night. someone else pointed out to me, a special master isn't going to be beholden to the unwritten 60-day rule, where you won't hear much about the investigation in the 60 days leading up to the election. could it be that we would actually, perhaps, learn even more and hear from the special master during that 60-day period? i mean, it could backfire. >> it is possible but no special master that i can think of is going to release classified information. and the bulk of the concern i have is that the investigation into who saw these documents, who had access, were any of them exposed to foreign nationals, or even worse, exposed to someone representing a foreign intelligence service, i want to make sure that that is taken care of and the special master

6:51 am
israeli forces. cnn's haddias gould joining us with the very latest from jerusalem. what more does this report say? >> reporter: yeah. this has been a highly anticipated report since it's been nearly for you months who this journalist, also an american citizen, was covering the israeli raid in may. the idf says it was most likely killed by israeli fire though they are still leaving the possibility they say it could have been other gunfire. this is the same conclusion that multiple media organizations including cnn as well as the united states have come to after their own investigations. now the idf says the soldiers were most likely in an armored military vehicle and that the soldiers did not identify sharene and her colleagues as journalists despite she was wearing a tag saying press on

the front and back of her vest. the israelis did not know they were shooting at journalists and thought they were shooting at the palestinian militant. the idf says they regret what happened and this should not happen, that he did not do so purpose. it's important to note there will be no criminal prosecution, the idf investigatory office said that the soldiers did not deliberately fire at anyone identified as a civilian and in particular anyone identified as a journalist. now the journalist's family in a statement said that the report tries to obscure the truth and avoid responsibility saying that they are very hurt, frustrated and disappointed, and they are still calling on the u.s. to conduct its own proper investigation that they say will include full accountability. >> wow, there's still going to be quite the reaction to that report throughout the day. hadas, appreciate it. thank you. this morning ukraine says at least two members of a nuclear
6:53 am
energy watchdog team will remain at the nuclear power plant. the announcement came hours after they said the mission would end on tuesday. group's troupe is being killed ineffective. joining me now very tired air force cedric leighton. good to see you this morning. the fact that one ukranian official is saying it's ineffective. two team members are staying behind. the big issue, of course, is russia doesn't seem to be willing to play ball in terms of a demilitarized zone. what happens now? >> yeah. that's a good question. it's going to be one of those areas where i think there will be a standoff between the russians and ukranians. the iaea is really there, the two members are going to be there at the, you know, with the acquiescence of the russians, and if the russians say they are going to go, that's going to be a problem for the iaea to monitor the situation there, so it's going to be dangerous, and
6:54 am
we have to look at this as a possible flashpoint going ahead. >> when we look at things stand, ukranian president zelenskyy speaking out very forcefully on his concerns. take a look at this. >> you see they occupied our nuclear stations, six blocks, the biggest in the europe. it means sick chernobyls. it means the biggest danger in the europe so they occupied, it so that is -- that means that they used nuclear weapon, that is nuclear weapon. >> so you hear him there, you know, making the case on "gma" this morning that occupying this plant is essentially using a nuclear weapon. you know, i've heard other people say they are holding this nuclear power plant hostage to use it as a nuclear threat. what do you think the end goal is here for russia? is it simply to use this as some sort of a bargaining chip?
6:55 am
is it to hold out as long as possible? >> i think it's possible that it's going to be a bargaining chip for the russians. of course, things could go very wrong very quickly, so this is an extremely risky playing with fire type of scenario, and it's really a dangerous game for the russians to be playing because the risk is so high. president zelenskyy is right. it will be a tough thing not only to get them out, but it is in essence hostage-taking of a very different kind. >> i know sometimes it can be tough to really assess it, but when we look at where we're now, more than six months into the war, we also heard from president zelenskyy that two settlements in the south and another in the eastern doing next region had been riblated, ukraine talking about some of the losses it inflicted on russian forces in kherson, talking about the ammunition depot. do we have a sense of where this war stands right now?
6:56 am
>> right now it's basically a stalemate. however, the ukranians are making a bit of progress, as you mentioned, and it's one of those areas where the ukranians have a chance to potentially capture the city of kherson. it's going to be a tough slog for them, but it's definitely something they could do. the other thing to think about is the russians are trying to amass a response to a response to the ukranian counteroffensive, and it's not going well. they have a third army corps that they have created and it's not at full strength and not in a position to actually go there. >> carl cedric leighton, always great to have you with us. thanks for being here. >> you bet. >> a manhunt is under way for two armed and dangerous suspects in a mass stabbing that has left 10 dead and at least 15 injured. we're live next.
