tv   CNN Newsroom With Alisyn Camerota and Victor Blackwell  CNN  September 14, 2022 12:00pm-1:00pm PDT

12:00 pm
the top of the hour on "cnn newsroom." i'm victor blackwell. >> i'm alisyn camerota. >> amtrak has canceled all its long distance routes ahead of friday's potential strike. union officials are still meeting. if a contract deal is not reached before midnight, friday, 60,000 workers could walk off the job. >> it would be catastrophic to the supply chain and disrupt an estimated 30% of all u.s. freightshipments. kaitlan collins and adrian broad
12:01 pm
does join us. >> amtrak workers are not involved, but many of the amtrak rails are owned by those freight railroad companies. this news was just announced moments ago in a statement. amtrak said started thursday it would cancel all long distance trains. as you mentioned, that is to avoid possible passenger disruptions while en route. obviously both sides are still negotiating and trying to reach an agreement before friday. it's not only the amtrak lines that will be impacted. for example, here in chicago already at least nine of the 11 metro lines have been suspended due to this possible strike. one travel expert who we heard from says this will be more if that strike happens than a travel nightmare. listen in. >> it's really going to bottle up the freight system. we have supply chain problems already. the ports are clogged.
12:02 pm
you throw in a rail strike and tens of thousands of containers can't get to where they want to go. that affects stores in our everyday lives. >> if this happens, alison and victor, it will touch all of us. you see the tracks behind us. these are not just amtrak rails. we're talking about freight rails, too. all types of trains run through here. victor and alison. >> adrien set the table for us. kaitlan, what do you know about the talks that we understand are still happening and include secretary walsh? >> they've been going on for some time now. this isn't the first time these sides have tried to discuss this, tried to head off this disagreement and come to an actual agreement. this is something that's been going on for weeks now. it's actually in person happening here today at the labor department where the labor secretary marty walsh is meeting with both railroad characters and union representatives.
12:03 pm
we saw those representatives walk into the labor department and i was told that meeting is still going on, speaking the the level of the complications here, the discussions here. they did say they are still involved in these good faith negotiations and they are all staying at the table today, obviously trying to come to an agreement, but the big question is whether or not they actually will. it's not just secretary walsh voft. transportation secretary pete buttigieg as well, as well as agriculture secretary tom ville sec. president biden has made calls to these carriers and the union. the concern is, if this does happen, if there is this strike and no agreement by this deadline of friday, that it could be potentially incredibly disruptive in the sense that they're trying to come up with contingency plans for things typically delivered by frustrate. chlorine to wastewater treatment, coal plants. all of that is something that the white house is taking into consideration. they're trying to develop
12:04 pm
contingency plans if they don't come to an agreement. secretary walsh and these representatives are still in a room even as this meeting is stretching on for several hours. >> we should also let our viewers know that the northeast corridor, which so many of them rely on to commute on, those have not been affected by the cancellations. adrian broad does, kaitlan collins, thank you. ukraine's president zelenskyy seeing firsthand how the tide has turned on the battlefield. today zelenskyy toured izyum which wasn't possible a week ago. now izyum is back to ukraine control and part of the 3,000 square miles he says ukrainian forces have taken back from russia. also this just in, a local official says russian forces have been run out of a town just north of kherson, the first city occupied by the russians. >> while in izyum, zelenskyy saw the destruction and death that russian troops left behind. he compared the scene to what he
12:05 pm
saw in bucha. regional officials in the east say ukraine's counteroffensive will slow a bit now that they've lost the element of surprise. russian shelling continues and is taking a toll elsewhere. a local official reports two people were killed, six pounded in the southern port city of mykolaiv. ben wedeman is in kyiv. yes, the ukrainians are making progress, but the u.n. warns that the end of this war is far away. what are you learning? >> reporter: certainly let's keep in mind, victor and alison, that the russians still control large parts of the country. this offensive in kharkiv was a serious blow to the russians, but there are no signs coming out of moscow at this point that they're going to compromise in any way. now today antonio guterres, the u.n. secretary-general did have
12:06 pm
a phone conversation with russian president vladimir putin. but afterwards he said, in his words, there's no cease-fire in sight. but one cannot deny that this is a massive victory in kharkiv for the ukrainians. it really underscores the shortcomings in the russian war effort. poor morale, poor training. the troops are poorly supplied and poorly led and largely in disarray. what we're hearing from the ukrainian military is that the russians, for instance, are pulling out the s-300, a very sophisticated air defense system from within ukrainian territory to inside russia because those systems are vulnerable according to the ukrainian military to these himars, that's high mobility arcticry rocket systems supplied by the united states. victor, alison. >> ben, it sounds like there's some infrastructure that is
12:07 pm
coming back, for instance, some mainlines of electricity were restored in kharkiv. what do you know? >> reporter: yes. they were damaged during this offensive by the russians. what we're really seeing is that the russians on the battlefield are performing very badly, but what they are doing is striking civilian military. we understand that south of kyiv a few hundred kilometers, a reservoir was hit by russian missiles causing some serious damage. this seems to be the pattern, hit civilian infrastructure because they can't make any progress on the battlefield. we did have one interesting development today. for the first time since april a commercial airplane flew from ukrainian out of the country. now, this was a whiz air a hungarian low-cost airline, flew an a-320 plane from lviv near
12:08 pm
the polish border to poland. it's only 35 miles away, so no great risk. that really underscores how after more than six months the russians cannot control the airspace over ukraine. in fact, the ukrainian military said they flew 11 sorties against russian targets today. so certainly the landscape of this war seems to be changing dramatically at the moment, but no end in sight. victor, alison. >> really interesting developments, ben wedeman. thank you. jill dougherty was cnn's moscow bureau chief and now adjunct professor at georgetown units. cedric leighton is a retired military analyst. i want your reaction to what we just reported, that russian forces have been cleared from a town north of kherson, the first city occupied by the russians. also the military advise tore
12:09 pm
president zelenskyy said they're fighting and trying to open up their way into the luhansk region. if they can make some advances in those two areas, what that means for the ukrainians. >> it's a big deal for the ukrainians, victor. i think the key thing here is to look at this whole operation in the northeast, in luhansk, the donbas and in the south as being a really coordinated effort on the part of the ukrainians. some of us thought that perhaps the southern operation because there was so much publicity around the operation around kherson, that that might have been a faint instead of the actual operation. now it looks as if it's not just a faint, it's a real bona fide operation that's going forward. it's just going a lot slower than what is going on in the northeast, and that is because the russians moved a lot of their forces down to the south, and they also have obviously a lot of logistical problems maintaining the forces that they
12:10 pm
have left up in the northeast. so we're seeing them move quite a bit of equipment out there as you reported. there are also some other things going on which are going to create some real difficulties for the russians going forward. >> jill, the effort to so-called liberate luhansk and donetsk was the reason for the invasion. if the ukrainians can make military advances there, what's the political potency domestically for putin? >> it's very interesting to watch how the russians are explaining or let's say spinning this because it does look very bad for president putin and his forces not to -- to be able to pull back and not to be able to
12:11 pm
stand up to the offensive by the ukrainians. this is not just ukraine. this is nato, the united states, europe, all of these countries aligned against us. that's i think an excuse for why they're not doing that well. and also there's a very interesting and i think something to be noted and watched which is, okay, what do you do about this? there is great pressure among the people who are, i'd say, on the far right of the equation in russia who are much more militant who are saying we ought to have martial law. the president of chechnya is saying we ought to have martial law. we ought to take it to the enemy and really not stop. there's a lot of this bellicose rhetoric at the same time that the word that is all over the internet in russia is panic, don't panic. i think there's a lot of concern. maybe not panic, but something
12:12 pm
close to that of wondering how can this happen and then what do you do about it? >> what's the value of president zelenskyy showing up in izyum? what's the message to ukrainians and also to russians? >> it's a big message from a publicity standpoint and morale standpoint, victor, the fact that president zelenskyy was in izyum or is in izyum, that makes up for like a thousand words. this is something that is really important because it shows the ukrainians are confident that they can keep izyum and the other territories that they've reoccupied. so with that in mind, they are trying to capitalize on the momentum they've had in the last few weeks. that is going to, i think, carry them forward at least into the next month or so. >> jill, let me turn to something different here. former ambassador and governor bill richardson was in moscow for talks.
12:13 pm
neither his organization nor the white house are commenting on what the focus of those talks, but we know paul whelen and brittney griner are being held. ambassador richardson was helpful in freeing trevor reed. what's the value or the utility of richardson for the russians versus what they could get from a dip catdiplomat from the stat department? >> i think it's precisely because he is not a diplomat from the state department. what the russians are saying is we want to use the usual channels, we want to do it quietly. remember you and i and other anchors had a great discussion on this about a month ago when it was all very public, how will president biden get brittney griner and paul whelen out. then it was very clear that that public diplomacy really wasn't
12:14 pm
working. the russians were furious about it. so it kind of went behind the scenes which doesn't mean that it's not very important what's happening. in fact, i think that visit by mr. richardson, the former ambassador, is very important, that this conversation continue, but probably that it not be public at this very, very delicate time. >> the u.s. put that prisoner swap on the table and that unfortunately has not made much progress. jill dougherty, colonel cedric leighton, thank you both. on the heels of yesterday's huge selloff on wall street, new economic data out "today" shows signs of improvement on inflation. mourners lined up for miles in london to pay their final respects to queen elizabeth ii. we're live from westminster next. go! only pay for what you need. jingle: liberty. liberty. liberty. liberty.

let's take a live look here at london where thousands of mourners are waiting for hours to pay their respects to queen elizabeth as she lies in state at westminster hall. this morning king charles, prince william and prince harry were reunited as they walked behind the queen's casket. >> london's transport commissioner says the planning around today's events and monday's funeral has been more challenging that the 2012 london olympics. senior international correspondent matthew chance is there with the mourners who have just left westminster hall. doors opened about three hours ago. what are you seeing? >> reporter: well, we're seeing a constant procession of people, people from all over the country, all over the world in
12:20 pm
fact, spending hours upon hours standing in that line of people, that huge kuwaiting to go through into westminster hall where they can file past in silence the casket of queen elizabeth ii. there's only one way out, by the way, once you've gone through that process, and it's this exit system here put in place. all these people here have already just within the last few minutes filed past the coffin to pay their respects. let's see if we can speak to someone. excuse me, would you be able to tell us -- >> oh, no. >> have you just seen the cassette. >> yes. >> what was that like? >> it was absolutely wonderful, worth every minute. >> how much hours did you queue? >> six hours, got there at half past two. >> what was the atmosphere like inside? describe it? >> you could hear a pin drop, it was so quiet and still. not a sound in there. absolutely wonderful. >> you're constantly moving
12:21 pm
through. >> yeah. it was absolutely wonderful. something i would never have done in my life. it wasn't my friend. we've done it together. >> why was it so important for you to pay your respects in this way? >> i think that she's been such a wonderful queen for everybody, and i just wanted to pay my respects and say thank you for what she's done for this country. >> is that how you feel as well? >> definitely. >> where have you come from today? >> croydon way. >> there's people from all over the world. >> we thought we would have to queue for hours and hours. six hours is pretty good. >> still quite a long time. well done for sticking it out. >> thank you. who are you with, by the way? >> we're with cnn. thank you. there you have it, victor, alison. you're getting the same story from everyone you speak to. there's a constant stream of people coming out now. people are going to be lining up
12:22 pm
all through out the night, all through out the next several days until, of course, the state funeral of queen elizabeth on monday morning when this process will come to an end and dozens of world leaders will be coming to the united kingdom, coming to london to attend that state funeral which will mark the end of the commemorations of queen elizabeth ii. back to you. >> it's nice to hear those six hours in line were well worth it and she wouldn't have missed it, that it was really important for her to do that with her friend. matthew chance, thank you very much for that. now back here, a key inflation report out today showed wholesale price increases are beginning to ease. the producer price index rose 8.7% in august compared to last year, but that was slightly beating economists' expectations. prices fell by .1% from july. u.s. stocks are down about 140 points in addition to yesterday's steep selloff driven by concerns of another steep rate hike.
12:23 pm
cnn business correspondent rahal solomon joining us now. tell us what this mean. >> it was a slight decline. this month marks the second consecutive month where we've seen a decline in producer inflation. i want to show you monthly what ppi has done, factory level, producer inflation. the last time we saw consecutive declines of ppi, producer inflation, was early in the pandemic, february, march and april. that is noteworthy. what we're seeing here is what we saw in the cpi report, energy behind what we're seeing. for us consumers, that means lower prices at the pump. the national average right now 370, much lower than a month ago, but still higher than a year ago. what we're seeing in this report for producers of goods and services, the energy prices are funneling into things like diesel prices, declines there, declines in home heating oil, furniture.
12:24 pm
yesterday in the cpi report we saw furniture prices still increasing. lumber continues to fall. i want to put this in perspective. this is not something we'll be going on the street and celebrating. inflation is historically high. if you look over the last five years or so, you can see it's very high, very elevated. it is an encouraging sign. here is why this matters. what do inflation producer inflation figures sunshine it tends to signal what we could see a few months down the line in the cpi report. it is an encouraging sign that we could see some relief a few months down the road. fingers crossed. >> fingers crossed, rahal solomon, thank you. trump ally and pillow salesman mike lindell says he's been served a subpoena by the fbi for the contents of his phone. what secrets does his phone hold? details next. he's in adelaide between his daily lunch delivery and an 8:15 5 call with san francisco.

an update now on the january 6th committee investigation. chairman bennie thompson tells cnn that the panel has gotten significant information in the
12:30 pm
last week regarding the deletion of secret service text messages around the capitol attack. >> the department of homeland security inspector general has claimed those secret service messages were erased as part of a device replacement program. joining us is cnn justice correspondent jessica schneider. jessica, what significant information did they get this week? >> they're still looking through all the documents. we did get confirmation from the secret service that they have resumed this handing over of documents to the committee. that actually restarted about two weeks ago. they've already handed over, they say, thousands more documents. this is all part of the committee probing why texts from that crucial period around january 6th seem to be missing, what texts might have existed in the first place. the secret service saying they weren't retained during the routine phone replacement. in other news, members are saying they're looking at resuming public hearing the final week of september. one of the members, congressman jamie raskin said they want to
12:31 pm
complete the story of what they've already told in previous hearings and focus on what they perceive as on going threats to democracy. the committee saying they're still weighing whether they'll actually make a criminal referral to the justice department. really at this point doj has numerous, on going criminal probes in all areas circling around the former president and his allies. victor and alison. >> trump ally and my pillow ceo mike lindell says that the department of justice has subpoenaed his phone. what do you know about that? >> so we've learned now this is all part of an investigation into an election security breach that allegedly happened in colorado during the 2020 election. mike lindell, he's been talking a lot about this. he even shared companies of the subpoena he received from the fbi. he told our team that what agents asked him, they approached him with questions about tina peter, the mesa county clerk who is facing
12:32 pm
charges for a scheme where she allegedly allowed an unauthorized z person to access voting machines. lindell says this happened yesterday afternoon when he was in minnesota at a drive-through at the fast food spot hardee's. here it is. >> cars pulled up to the front of us, to the side of us and behind us. i said, those are either bad guys or the fbi. well, it turns out they were the fbi. >> lindell said he actually thought the agents were approaching him related to the january 6th investigation. of course, victor and alison, we know it's in relation to this on going colorado probe into this possible election security issue with voting machines being breached in mesa county. guys -- >> jessica schneider, thank you. let's talk more about these
12:33 pm
investigations. david aronberg is the state attorney for palm beach county. is mike lindell in trouble? >> a lot of trouble. this further shows the danger of eating fast food. to get a search warrant for someone's phone, you've got to have probable cause that a crime occurred and that evidence of that crime would be found on his phone. yeah, he's in a lot of trouble. >> they must think he's connected to this mesa county election breach of voting machines. >> oh, he is. he knows all the players involved. he kept one of the players in one of his safe houses for a while. it's so bizarre. one of the main perpetrators is this surfer turned qanon conspiracy theorist who lied and said he was a tech guy and stole the voting machine. he is going to be charged. i think mike lindell eventually will be charged. >> okay. about all those classified and top secret documents that the fbi had to go and retrieve from mar-a-lago, the department of justice says that the delay, as
12:34 pm
you know, the judge has sort of frozen this while they worry about a special master, try to agree on a special master. the department of justice says they are doing irreparable damage by delaying this basically to national security, because who knows what top secrets have been spilled or breached somehow. what the judge said was, well, go right ahead with your national security investigation, just stop the criminal probe. the department of justice is saying we can't, they're inextricably linked. why can't you separate it out? >> the cia is not a domestic law enforcement agency. when you do this review of the damage caused by keeping these documents at mar-a-lago and palm beach, you can't do it without the fbi's help. to say the fbi cannot be involved any longer means that they can't do the review, it means the human sources are put at risk. we're talking about lives at stake. >> by the way, we still don't know if all the classified
12:35 pm
documents are back in safe keeping, if the top secret documents are back because, as you'll remember, there were dozens of empty folders that said classified documents. where are the contents of those? also, who knows what donald trump did with boxes of classified documents that were so sloppily mishandled. the house oversight committee has sent a letter about this, and they say, this was the letter to the national archives. the committee is concerned given this pattern of conduct mr. trump may consider to retain records at non-secure locations. the national archive staff informed the committee the agency is not certain whether all presidential records are in its custody. now what? >> well, i think that means they may go ahead and start searching other trump properties like bedminster. why stop at mar-a-lago? if you believe he still has some of these very important documents. you're talking about human resources -- human individuals,
12:36 pm
spies, who could be put at risk. the way they know and believe he has those documents, they've got someone on the inside, whether a secret service agent or other people really close to donald trump. let me tell you, that must drive him crazy. drum demands complete loyalty even if the loyalty is a one-way street. >> in other words, you think there could be another search we could see at bedminster or something like that, like the kind we saw at mar-a-lago? >> the only reason we know about the search about mar-a-lago is because trump disclosed it. the doj is really good at keeping secrets. trump is not. this could be very far along. they could be in the process of trying to plan a search of other properties as we speak. one thing we know about merrick garland, he is good at keeping a secret. >> congressman carolyn malone many is looking for a personal certification from donald trump that he surrendered all the classified documents and all the thousands of pages that don't belong to him. given his less-than-stellar
12:37 pm
track record of telling the truth, why would she want a personal certification? >> she wants him on the hook, 1519 against him. right now he can throw lawyers under the bus, christina bob who signed the certification saying we gave everything back. it's a bad idea when you signed a letter written by a different lawyer who refuses to put his name on the letter. she's in the doj's crosshairs. the congressman wants the former president's name on the line. a new study suggests taking a multivitamin could help older people stay sharp, have higher brain function, why researchers were shocked by the results next. my little family is me, aria, and jade. just the three of us girls. i never thought twice about feeding her kibble. but about o years ago, i realized she was overweight.

a new study says older adults who take a daily multivitamin may benefit from improved cognition. >> researchers from wake forest and brigham and women's hospital add the benefit appears to be greater for those where a history of cardiovascular disease. cnn medical correspondent dr. tara narula has more on the study. researchers say they were shocked by these findings. what was so shocking? >> this was an interesting study. they took about 2,000 older americans, over 65, and wanted to see if giving them either a cocoa supplement or multivitamin might help their cognitive function. they anticipated benefit in the cocoa group because they have a compound called flavonoids which is associated with dilatation of
12:43 pm
the blood vessels. in fact, no significant benefit in that group. instead, they did see a benefit in the group that got the multivitamin, about a 60% decrease in cognitive aging or 1.8 years. as you mentioned, this was enhanced in those with underlying cardiovascular disease. the effect was more profound. actor ryan reynolds recently let cameras in for his colonoscopy, inside the medical suite, inside the room. to clarify that. sorry, ryan. let's take a look. >> i'm going to eat a graham cracker. >> you did such a good prep that i was able to find an extremely subtle polyp on the writ side of your colon. this was potentially lifesaving for you. i'm not being overly dramatic. this is exactly why you do this. you had no symptoms. i'm thrilled. >> thank you so much for this,

judge and the prosecution. they expected at least 40 more witnesses to be called. the judge, elizabeth scherer, she scolded the defense for wasting the court's time. >> there is the most uncalled for, unprofessional way to try the case. you -- you all knew about this, and even if you didn't make your decision until this morning, to have 22 people plus all of the staff and every attorney march into court, be waiting as if it's some kind of game, the state's not ready, they're not going to have another witness ready. we have another day wasted. honestly, i have never experienced a level of unprofessionalism in my career. >> cnn's carlos suarez joins us live from broward county now. carlos, that -- that was quite a tongue lashing from the judge. >> reporter: that's exactly

right. the judge has had issues with both sides throughout there case. just a few weeks ago she accused both sides of treating her courtroom like a, quote, classroom. this morning she was upset that the decision had been made to cut -- that the defense had made the decision to cut their case pretty short. this morning's heated exchange did play out before the jury was brought in. the defense was expected to call two witnesses today, and they gave no indication that they were going to cut their case short. everyone was expecting several more weeks of testimony from dozens of more witnesses including nicholas cruz's own brother zachary. now when the defense corp-- def attorney tried to explain, the judge, she cut her off. >> you're insuddening me on the record -- insulting me on the record in front of my client -- >> you can make that later. you've been insulting me the entire trial. so blatantly, taking your headphones off, arguing with me, storming out, coming in late
