tv New Day With John Berman and Brianna Keilar CNN September 7, 2022 2:59am-4:00am PDT
and jack harlow finished third with first class. that means summer is over, right? welcome to fall. thanks for joining us. "new day" starts right now. hims charges in new york state. it is wednesday, september 7th and i'm brianna keilar with john berman. new overnight the long-time trump ally is expected to surrender thursday in new york to face charges for a llleged doouping donors who gave money to fund a wall along the u.s. mexico southern board. we build the wall raised more than $25 million. according to prosecutors bannon
falsely told donors that all the money contributed would go toward the construction effort. >> federal prosecutors charged bannon with the same basic alleged crime in 2020 but he was pardoned by donald trump as trump was leaving office. presidential pardons do not apply to state investigations. cnn's kara scannell is here with the latest. this has a familiar ring to it, but steve bannon, these are serious charges. >> yeah, these are serious charges and a serious investigation by the manhattan district attorney's office. sources tell me that bannon will surrender, a expected to surrender tomorrow here in new york to face these new york state charges. the conduct he is being charged with is very similar to the conduct that he was charged by federal prosecutors in 2020 and that was for allegedly along with co-conspirators misleading donors who donated money in this fundraising effort to raise money to build a wall along the southern u.s. border, an entity called we build the ball. bannon was charged in august of
2020, he was then pardoned as former donald trump was leaving office. that's when the manhattan district attorney's office opened their investigation and because he was pardoned before he was actually gone to truly or pled guilty or was convicted prosecutors in manhattan believe there is this issue of double jeopardy doesn't apply so they've been conducting this investigation and as we reported in june some of the closest people to bannon were brought before the state grand jury. that was a signal that this investigation was really picking up some steam. now we're learning that prosecutors have obtained an indictment from that grand jury and bannon is going to surrender in new york. he has called these charges phoney and said that they are nothing more than a partisan political weaponization of the criminal justice system. of course, this comes just two months after bannon was convicted of federal charges of contempt of congress for failing to comply with a subpoena by the house select committee investigating january 6. >> double jeopardy, some people may remember that paul manafort
was convicted and pardoned of federal charges, but the difference is bannon never wept to trial. >> bannon was charged in this case and it was going through the criminal justice system but he had never gone to trial, it hadn't come up to trial, he didn't plead guilty to it, he pleaded not guilty and denied those charges and he was pardoned before it ever got beyond that. lawyers i've spoken with say it doesn't apply in the same way in this context. >> very interesting the legal problems mount for steve bannon. kara scannell, thank you. a big development this morning in the investigation into highly classified documents found at trump's mar-a-lago resort. the "washington post" is reporting that a document describing a foreign government's nuclear capabilities was among the files seized in the fbi's search last month. the post writes, quote, some of the seized documents detailed top secret u.s. operations so closely guarded that many senior national security officials are kept in the dark about them. joining us now is cnn political and national security analyst david sanger. he is also "the new york times"
white house and national security correspondent and the author of "the perfect weapon." how big of a deal is this, david? >> it depends on what's in the documents. there's a lot here we still don't know, the post did very good work but we don't know what country we're discussing here and what country's nuclear program. you can kind of narrow the field here. there are only nine nuclear weapons states right now, some declared, some not declared. seems unlikely that donald trump would have a particular interest in, say, britain or france's nuclear program or even israel's. he long had a deep interest, brianna, in, of course, north korea when he was negotiating with kim jong-un in those summits, he said, in fact, that the end of the first summit he was certain they would begin turning over their nuclear weapons within six months. they've never turned over a single one. and of course he had a deep interest in iran. so i think those would probably be the most likely.
and we know of course that he kept his letters, what he used to call the love letters, from kim jong-un which he then voluntarily turned back over to the government. >> why hang on to them, though? what would the point be of hanging on to this information? keep in mind this is the information that was taken in the search of mar-a-lago most recently, so he hung on to this after multiple requests to get this from the federal government. >> this is one of the great mysteries and there are many different theories. of course, he always said these documents are mine, he didn't really have a concept of the presidential records act saying that they actually belonged to the american people, that they are under the control of the archives. i imagine that he could have thought about using them as he has said for memoires or his presidential library, but donald trump does not seem like the kind of person who has spent a lot of time thinking about writing a memoire or putting his
library together. there's also the possibility that many other states that he might want to be dealing with in the future, either on -- in a business sense or in the role of an ex-president have a deep interest in this. i mean, all of the arab states that he dealt with obviously are very fixated on the iranian program. >> a federal judge has okayed a special master, a third party, going through these documents. what does that look like now? if you are talking about information that is so sensitive and clearly has nothing to do with attorney/client privilege and so few people even are supposed to see it, how does that play out? >> it's a really hard question because presumably who the special master would have to have a clearance, but even a clearance isn't going to help you with that subset of documents that we saw in that famous photograph that indicated sci, sensitive compartmentalized
information, which is available only to a very small circle, even of people who have clearances. that's what makes the nuclear nature of these documents so interesting because one would assume that if it's sci it may well have to do with operations against some of these programs and of course of the programs that we know of the two the u.s. has focused the most on in running operations that we've revealed in the "times" in past years to try to stop or to slow have been north korea and iran. >> fascinating. david sanger, thank you so much. such important context as we look at just what this means. >> great to be with you. >> we're going to get some reaction from mark esper the former secretary of defense from the trump administration ahead. so california narrowly avoided rolling brachouts overnight as extreme heat taxed the state's energy grid. this comes after state officials declared a stage 3 energy emergency there for several
hours last night, asking for, quote, maximum conservation by consumers. bill weir cnn's chief climate correspondent, this was touch and go. >> it really was. >> for the most populous state by far in the country. >> it looks like californians avoided these rolling blackouts by conserving, maybe setting the air conditioner higher than they normally would have for comfort levels. sacramento yesterday all time record 116 degrees fahrenheit, and this is a place that has seen the longest dry spell on record in the last year, 212 days, broken up by the rainiest single rain event ever, 5.5 inches in a day and then the driest start to the season, now the hottest day, it's this whiplash of extremes. >> the extremes really are extraordinary. we know from covering weather events for years heat can actually be the deadliest weather disaster. >> it is. >> now there are movements across the country to start naming heat waves.
>> exactly. >> like hurricanes are named. what's the reasoning behind that. >> it is. it's so educate the public, seville, spain, became the first community to do this officially. naming a heat wave like you would a hurricane. california has passed through their house and senate, just needs the governor's signature that by 2025 they want to categorize heat waves the way you would hurricane events. it's the silent killer. it kills about soo 150 people a year, but you don't think about it in the same way. there have been meteorologists conventions recently where they are talking about what colors to use. like we've run out of alarming colors when it comes to more extreme tornadoes or heat waves now, but it's important that people understand it's here, it's deadly and it's extended. >> and the idea would be to create a mental shift among the population that this is really bad. >> this is bad and to look out for the vulnerable. >> let's talk about the united kingdom. >> okay. >> there is a new government there, liz truss is the new prime minister there, she met with the queen yesterday and
named her cabinet. the most diverse cabinet in the history of britain. the person she has named as energy secretary is jacob reese mog who is someone who has suggested that there's been too much attention to the notion of climate change, overreaction he has suggested to climate change and he thinks instead of trying to stop it people should just adapt to it. >> he's been on record in op-ed pieces that climate alarmism is to blame for high energy prices or that, you know, the met office, the weather meteorological office of the uk can't predict next week's temperature forecast so how do we know what's going to happen in ten years from now. it's troubling for climate activists in the uk who saw boris johnson as somebody who talked a good game but really didn't back it up with who will si or budgets but now what's happened on a global if you back off in the rich democracies, it happened in australia, happened here in the united states, there's this pendulum between
climate concern and the denial or delay. the uk having influenced so many other countries around the world, these developing nations look to the u.s., the uk, the eu for clues on how to avoid the industrial revolution, mistakes of the past. we will see how this plays out. he says his main concern now is energy prices for britain. same kind of, you know, touch points we see in the united states here, but liz truss she was the environmental minister for a while, she didn't care for solar panels on the rolling green fields of england, she wanted the country side reserved for sort of agriculture and maybe move the clean energy to the cities, but who knows how this will play out. it's the early days of the government. >> the pendulum swings, sometimes it's hard for the u.s. pendulum to swing to line up with other nations to get things done and make progress. >> great to see you, john. this morning the texas department of public safety
suspending two officers amid an investigation of their actions during the uvalde school massacre. the agency says it's also revising its training for mass shootings in the wake of the deadliest school shooting in texas history. cnn's shimon prokupecz has more. >> reporter: john and brianna, the texas department of public safety not revealing why these officers are now under formal investigation with the inspector general, these five injuries and these two officers who have now been suspended with pay. the agency is now releasing or giving up any information as to why they have taken this step, but we know that 91 department of public safety officers were on scene on may 24th, some of them inside robb elementary, many of them outside, you know, much of the blame for what police didn't do that day has been placed on the now fired school police chief pete arredondo. many here criticize the head of the department of public safety for coming out and placing all
that blame on one individual and now it seems that there has been some indications here that something has turned up in the internal investigation that the department of public safety has been conducting which has now forced them to have this formal investigation and then suspending these two officers with pay. john, brianna? >> shimon, thank you for that report. 17 months in the biden cabinet remains the same. that is in sharp contrast to trump's musical chairs. plus, the obamas return to the white house today for the unveiling of their portraits. we will break down the history and some drama of unveilings past. and one of america's rising young tennis stars exits the u.s. open. vented car vending machines and buying a car 100 percent online now we've created a brand new way for you to sell your car whether it's a year old, or a few years old we wanant to buy your car so go to carvana enter your license plate answer a a few questions

remains the same and we all saw it yesterday as all 24 officials gathered for a meeting at the white house. this stands in contrast to the changes made by donald trump during his administration. with us now is cnn politics reporter and editor at charge chris cillizza. it was a familiar picture we saw yesterday, chris. >> it was, john. let me just illustrate that for you. look, this is -- we showed this when joe biden's administration started, there have been absolutely zero changes in his cabinet and his senior sort of -- the senior level, you have director of omb, small business administration, all of these people were there at the start. now you say, okay, what's the news? here is donald trump's cabinet at this point. and i want to highlight a few things here. it wasn't just small changes. rex tillerson, his secretary of state, was gone. tom price, his health and human services secretary was gone. his chief of staff was gone and
john kelly had moved over to be his chief of staff. that was just right now, what about two years on? a lot more x marks. again, really important people. we know about tillerson. jim mattis his secretary of defense was gone. jeff sessions had been fired the day after the 2018 election. ryan zinke had resigned in major controversy. secretary of veterans affiars was gone. donald trump went through -- let me get this out -- donald trump had gotten rid of by the time this was all over -- i'm going to write it on here -- he had gone through four chiefs of staff, he had gone through five secretaries of homeland security, john. the turnover here is telling, i think, of who these two guys are. joe biden is an institutionalist, spent his life in the senate, he has had the same people around him in terms of top aides for years and years
and years and years. donald trump is a guy who got famous by telling people you're fired, right? he is someone who looks to blame, tends to look for a scapegoat, likes change, likes to make changes on a whim. i think you're seeing different personalities come through. joe biden is not a guy who jumps or makes changes quickly, sometimes to his detriment candidly, but i think that's why you're seeing what you're seeing here. >> i think trump may have been the overliar compared to past presidents. we will see what happens in the after the midterms. it would be unusual if there wasn't at least some change after the midterm elections but we will wait and see on that. chris slil sza, wonder to see you. former president obama and first lady michelle obama are unveiling the official white house for traits. the unveiling of official white house portraits is a decades long tradition that former president trump broke when he declined to host the obamas.
kate bennett is here with all the details. kate? >> well, you know, michelle obama has not been back to the white house since she left in 2017. this is of course a tradition that goes back many, many, many years and it is resuming after that break during donald trump's presidency. >> reporter: a tradition returning to the white house, former president barack obama and former first lady michelle obama to visit the white house for their official portrait unveiling. this is the first time the former first lady is visiting the white house since leaving in 2017. while former president obama attended an event at the white house earlier this year. obama and biden share a close bond after biden served as obama's vice president for eight years. >> president biden and dr. biden are honored to have former president obama and firster first lady michelle obama back to the white house for the
unveiling of their portraits which will hang on the walls of the white house as a remembrance of hope and change. >> it is a long-standing tradition. >> president clinton and senator clinton welcome back. >> welcome back to the house that you called home for eight years. >> reporter: sitting presidents host their immediate predecessors to unveil their official portraits in a bipartisan light-hearted event as seen when the clintons welcomed the bushes for their unveiling. >> as americans look for ways to come together to deal with the challenges we face today they can do well in looking to the lives of president and mrs. bush. >> thank you, president clinton, for those overly generous words, as a kind assessment of what and so many here in this room tried to do. frankly i needed those kind words. >> reporter: former president donald trump broke this tradition and declined to host
the obamas for their portrait unveiling. trump even moved the portraits of former presidents bill clinton and george w. bush to the rarely used old family dining room. biden returned the portraits back to their original displays in the grand foyer last year. the tradition started with former first lady jackie kennedy who began the policy of pro during life portraits of the presidents and first ladies. the kennedys portraits were unveiled in 1971. the event has served as a time for presidents and first ladies to honor their predecessors. >> george, you went out of your way to make sure that the transition to a new administration was as seamless as possible. >> i'd like to take this opportunity to thank laura for providing such a wonderful model of strength and grace for me to follow. >> reporter: and also crack jokes. >> president bush, if i looked half as good as you do when i
leave office i will be a happy man. >> when you are wandering these halls as you wrestle with tough decisions, you will now be able to gaze at this portrait and ask, what would george do? >> it is an interesting tradition and of course you have to welcome back the guy who beat you or you didn't campaign for and he's going to move into your room and work in your office and live in your house. it is a strange thing, but i will say also it's important to note that the white house historical association pays for these portraits, people always say who pays in does the taxpayer pay? it is the white house historical association raised by donations it's nonpartisan and they are different than the portraits at the national portrait gallery. the white house fportraits are officials. the trump portraits we hear are in the works for the white house. now, whether the bidens decide to invite the trumps back to unveil we will have to see but the trump's portraits for the
national portrait gallery are also in the works. >> are they going to pick up that tradition after trump that trump himself did not. it will be a big question. >> it will be. i have a feeling they will. this as we just saw something that is a jovial lighthearted moment no matter what the animosity is it's nice to seen it return back to the white house. >> one of the remarkable things we heard is we heard past presidents, we heard george w. bush say welcome home when you heard barack obama say welcome to the place that you called home. could you conceive of donald trump having said that to the obamas when he was in the white house? and frankly it's hard -- i just -- in this political environment it's just hard to imagine a moment like that. >> well, also we have to remember there was no exchange -- i mean, the trumps left that day, there was no, you know, helping out for transition, they just took off. so there's no indication that that would have been a ceremony that they would have attended anyway and may not attend in the
future, we will have to see. >> great report. thank you for sharing it with us. >> thank you. a border battle, the escalating war of words between chicago mayor lori lightfoot and texas governor greg abbott over migrants. light foot accusing abbott of treating them like freight. american frances tiafoe returns to the court today.

chicago's mayor lori lightfoot and texas governor greg abbott is escalating over migrants. abbott's operation lone star has transported nearly 10,000 newly arrived migrants to the nation's capital and new york city by bus and now the republican governor is busing more of them to chicago. >> it is not a governor who wants to collaborate and cooperate with us, there's a way to do it, it's real simple, pick up the phone, send me an email. that to me would show that he's -- importantly that he's regarding these folks as human beings who are deserving of respect and dignity and not treating them just like freight to be shipped across the country. >> cnn's omar jimenez joins us now live from chicago on this. omar? >> reporter: brianna, mayor lightfoot says that she has been -- her office has been in regular communication with people on the ground in texas, but that, as you heard, governor abbott is not one who wants to coordinate or cooperate. she's said that he is
manufacturing a humanitarian crisis. this goes back to last week when migrants first began arriving here in chicago, another 50 got here sunday afternoon and mayor lightfoot says chicago will continue to offer them food, shelter, medical care, if necessary, as she wants chicago to be a welcoming city, but she's also said that governor abbott as you heard is treating please migrants like freight being shipped across the country and went so far as to call him a man without morals, shame or humanity. well, governor greg abbott's office is responding through a statement that reads in part, instead of lowly personal attacks on the governor and complaining about a few dozen migrants being bused into their sanctuary city mayor lightfoot should call on president biden to take immediate action to secure the border. customs and border protection has seen record amounts of interactions and encounters along the border, but homeland security secretary alejandro mayorkas has said when a state
official acts unilaterally like this it's thrown the federal system for processing migrants out of whack. the state of texas has already spent more than $12 million busing migrants to various other cities since the governor began doing this earlier this year, april into the summer. now, mayor lightfoot says she does plan to travel to washington, d.c. later this week to meet with legislators and try to coordinate federal resources for here in chicago and other cities as well to process some of these migrants. chicago of course is the third major city to receive these migrants from texas on bus of course joining new york city and washington, d.c. brianna? >> omar, we will be watching this. it just seems to be getting bigger between governor abbott and these mayors and democratic cities. the u.s. military is formulating long-term plans to help shape and support ukraine's military, so what could those plans look like? we have new cnn reporting ahead. and cnn sits down with

this morning sources say the pentagon is working on establishing its long-term plans to support ukraine. not just the now, but the five years after the war is over. cnn's barbara starr is live at the pentagon this morning. barbara, what exactly does this mean? >> well, good morning, john. look, what do you want the ukraine military to look like? that's the question before the pentagon right now. general mark milley, chairman of the joint chiefs, spear heading this analysis, what kind of weapons, what kind of strategy, what should the ukraine military be capable of doing even once this war is over to defend itself against future aggression. so deep analysis, deep dive into all of this in coordination with the ukrainians, of course, about what kind of weapons they might need, what kind of strategy do they want? do they want to be a ground force, do they want to have air
power, do they want to be strictly defensive, do they want an offensive capability? all of this on the table right now. now, it is a delicate matter of course because it puts the u.s. in the position of telling ukraine what it thinks it needs possibly, but ukraine of course sovereign nation, they could decide to move ahead and go to other countries and seek to get the weapons they believe they need. but right now this could lead to billions of dollars in additional multiyear contracts, long-term military training for ukraine by the u.s. it sets the stage essentially for beyond the war, but, let's face t also beyond a biden administration. what it all may look like in the coming years. and all important right now, this morning, in fact, defense secretary lloyd austin and general mark milley, chairman of the joint chiefs taking off for germany for a meeting tomorrow with the ukrainians, nato and about 40 other countries talking
about future arm sales, future contracts, future support and all of this setting the foundation for what the ukraine military will look like against the russians possibly in the coming years. john? >> this is a long-term investment to be sure. barbara starr, thank you very much. >> sure. foreign fiefters on the front lines say ukraine is making slow but definite progress in retaking the southern region of kherson. the main challenge is being outgunned and jout numbered. sam skiely has more. >> reporter: among the most forward troops in ukraine's latest counteroffensive, this really is normal. when the crunch of incoming artillery is this intense -- >> guys. >> reporter: -- casualties in in
reconnaissance unit which includes three foreigners are inevitable. this man from britain was lightly wounded on day one of the offensive, on day two he was more seriously injured in the leg by artillery alongside michael, a former u.s. marine from kansas. he was hit in the hand, stomach and head. they joined ukraine's army together, but met fighting isis in syria. zaffer is the former u.s. marinas kurdish code name. as recon troops they have been the tip of ukraine's attacks on its soren front in the fight to recapture kherson. >> looking out to my left and pop, i couldn't see anything for a bit, everything looked the same, everything came to, looked at my left, looked fine, looked at my right, okay i'm [ bleep ] there, i'm [ bleep ] there. to the hole. >> reporter: it's going to be a slow grinding fight they say whatever the claims of the ukraine's government. this counteroffensive is being
billed as kind of a quick process. do you think that that's -- >> no definitely not. it won't be quick. i mean, it's hard, slow fought. position by position, but we haven't got resources to do a massive blitzkrieg. >> reporter: u.s. weapons and other nato equipment have proved useful, but not decisive as ukraine has captured a handful of villages since the counteroffensive began. here russian troops wave a white flag of surrender after precision artillery strikes by u.s. supplied howitzer's are monitored by this unit with a drone. russia has motivated its troops with false claims they're liberating ukraine from nazis. >> do you feel sorry for the russians? >> no. no. not at all. it's not like ukraine has invaded russia. they've invaded ukraine. they're here, killing civilians, killing our soldiers.
i've got no sympathy for them whatsoever. >> reporter: ukraine has imposed a news blackout on the southern offensive and keeps its casualty figures secret but for these men being wounded isn't the end of combat, it's an interruption. >> are you going to go back? >> yeah, once everything heals on my body, probably within three to four weeks i should be right back out there. >> reporter: now, john and brianna, the initiative at least on this southern front seems to be in the ukrainians since this counteroffensive and we're getting similar reports that there are slow advances being made in the kharkiv area in the north of the country, but in the east the process is still being described there by ukrainian soldiers as nothing short of a meat grinder. casualties are escalating on both sides. john and brianna? >> sam, putin made a speech this morning where he said that russia has lost nothing in its special military operation in ukraine. what do you make of that? >> reporter: well, it's
ludicrous and typical of the sort of propaganda that the putin regime is putting out which means that so many russians still believe they're fighting a nazi regime here in democratic west-leaning ukraine that's presided over by a jewish president. there are 40 countries about to meet to discuss the military support going forward for ukraine so they've lost strategically, the russians have lost strategically, they've lost economically due to the gigantic levels of sanctions, they've lost many, many thousands of dead and injured in this war and the indications are that the army itself is coming under deep pressure, it may even be crumbling in its rear because they are now having to reach out to none other than north korea to try to buy more ammunition, particularly rockets and artillery, bombs and shells. so in that context it's very difficult to see where russia hasn't lost. i'd love to hear where he thinks they might have gained. >> sam kiley life for us in

the highly anticipated tech event of the season is here, apple is expected to debut its iphone 14 lineup later today, the keynote event will take place in the company's northern california headquarters, this year's tag line, far out. with me now cnn chief business correspondent christine romans and cnn business correspondent rahel solomon. what can we expect today? >> maybe that far out could be a reference to maybe a satellite connectivity for emergency calls. there's also probably a bigger screen, probably a bigger price tag, better camera, maybe a tell photo lens. lots of -- i find it remarkable
that people turn in a perfectly good working phone to pay $12 $1,000. >> once you have an iphone and you see the newer version suddenly your camera looks like gobbledegook. i think a big draw for this iphone 14 is the camera quality, especially for the selfie lovers out there. >> that's you, john. >> john berman, that's directed at you. cost-wise we expect it should cost about $100 more, especially at the higher end. look, i don't think apple is going to have any issues with demand here. >> my arms aren't nearly long enough to get -- >> i know. >> push back, push back, i don't like it. >> my kids are like don't even try it, mom. >> what about price tag, right? because there has been some inflation here, are we going to see much more expensive iphones. >> that's a big question. the other question, i think maybe $100 is what most people are thinking, $100 more. we are in this period of inflation. but is this a tech essential that people will dig deep for?
apple is betting on the fact that people will pay for it. there's brand employment and the american consumer will pay for its gadgets. >> more people are holding on to their phones so that actually might benefit apple this cycle. wedbush put out recently saying that the 1 billion active iphones accounts by their estimates 240 million hasn't upgraded their phones in three and a half years. that should benefit apple heading into their cycle. >> the selfie from two different angles, i have a cut away camera for the selfie. >> a.mbitious. >> how incredibly fit our bosses are. just what phenomenal shape they are in. the "wall street journal" picked up on this and was talking about buff ceos. >> rich and ripped. >> go ahead, explain. >> this is clearly a thing. rich ceos are becoming more fit.
certainly health conscious. what we're really seeing here is i think what we see just sort of amongst us mere mortals, a more focus on our image because of cameras, because of selfies, because of social media. so, you know, ceos certainly have the means to make sure they look the best among us. >> i think shareholder value now shredded abs, they have theouts, watches, land and now they have the team and time to make a nerd look like thor. that is the ultimate status symbol. when you have the time and the people around you that you can make yourself look to great. i was thinking about this earlier. imagine the ceos of the corporate titans of the '80s and '90s, that he was cigar chomping work ahold licks who maybe played some golf but certainly never looked like anything like this. this is very 21st century stuff. >> lee iacocca looked awesome in a tank top. >> it's not just the ceos.
jim colter is very much having a moment. how many times a year do you hear do you even lift, bro? all the time, right, john? >> people can see. they don't have to ask me. >> jim colter certainly having a moment, but also, i mean, we have seen this explosion of male skin care. men want to look good, too, and ceos are not excluded. and i'm here for it. >> we all do need supple skin. seriously. the advantages of some supple skin, i can't even begin. >> i love that the yachts aren't enough. the yachts and thousands of acres of wyoming ranches aren't enough, that they have to look really great, too. i wonder if that's leveling the playing field. women have always had this public pressure, especially high-profile women to dress perfectly, to be fit, and now -- >> bigger a better, it's not just money. >> it's about time, rahel solomon, christine romans, thank you all very much. so he was once saved by a presidential pardon but steve
bannon might need more than that this time as he is set to surrender to new york prosecutors. >> new reports on an explosive find by the fbi at mar-a-lago. a document describing a foreign government's military defenses including its nuclear capabilities. lly when enamel is gone, you cannot get it back. but there are ways you can repair it. i'm excited about pronamel repair because it penetrates deep intoto the tooth to help actively repair acid-weakened enenamel. i recommend prpronamel repair to my patients. this is the planning effect. if rayna's thinking about retirement, she'll get some help from fidelity to envision what's possible. fidelity can help her ioritize her goals by looking at her full financial picture. plus they'll help her pick an investment strategy, one she's comfortable with. and with a clear plan to get to retirement, rayna can enjoy wherever she's headed next. that's the planning effect, from fidelity.
