5:02 am
good morning, everyone. it is saturday, november 19th. i'm really cold just looking at the pictures of the snow. shivering, thanks for waking up with us, and, martin, thank you for being with us this morning. >> it is a pleasure. great to be with you. let's begin in western new york where millions of people are getting slammed by a massive lake-effect snowstorm. snowfall totals are nearing, listen to this, six feet, in the town of natural bridge. and 5 1/2 feet in the town of orchard park. but more areas have seen just over an inch of snow. >> it looks beautiful, but unfortunately, the winter storm has been blamed for at least two deaths. officials say two people died after suffering cardiac arrest while shoveling or blowing snow. >> if you're going to be outside and you're going to be shoveling, if you're going to be doing some type of strenuous
5:03 am
activity out there because of this heavy snow. please know your limitations. better yet know your neighbors or just wait it out. >> this is an area familiar with heavy snowfall, even though, officials are taking no chances. a state of emergency is in place for 11 counties and erie county is issuing travel bans and travel advisories to keep people off the roads. the storm has cancelled air flights, knocked out power to thousands of customers and the nation is bracing for more. >> yeah, it's not over yet, gloria, how miserable are you? i guess you're not miserable enough yet. and what are the warning officials are giving? >> reporter: good morning, amara, martin, let me tell you, i have been out here since yesterday. and i have been sort of fascinated watching what the storm has been doing. early this morning, around 4:00,
5:04 am
i could barely see out my window. now that the sun is up, you can really see just how much snow has been dropped here in the downtown area of buffalo. the southern part of the area, the southern towns, were pummeled by the storm yesterday. and overnight. we got a lot of the action as well. now, cleanup has started. you can see a crew down there, but there are really just trying to keep up with things here. because as you said, this storm is not quite over. it's somewhat clear right now, but because of the way the storm is behaving, it's going to be coming in and out in bans. and that is where it's key to remind people that they need to stay off the roads. and they seem like it's clear enough to go out there, but officials are asking people here in the area to stay home. several people had to be rescued from their vehicles overnight.
5:05 am
the city, the county here, erie county, is issuing more than 300 tickets to motorists who did not obey the driving ban. had to be rescued. several vehicles were abandoned. and as you mentioned, unfortunately, two people have died as a result of the storm. so be very careful. this is very heavy, solid, it's packed with ice underneath. it's extremely hard to lift. so if you're going to go out there, know your limitations, and if you don't really need to be out there, just wait it out, stay home. let the professionals take care of it. and try to enjoy the beauty of it, but do so safely. >> very good advice. gloria pazmino, thank you for out there in it for us. we want to bring in the mayor byron brown. mayor, thank you very much for joining us. let me ask you a question, how are you and your citizens holdingup.
5:06 am
>> we're holding up, martin. this is not the typical snowfall for the city of buffalo, let me say is that first of all, or for our region. this is a very heavy snowstorm. but we are battling it. we have been out since the storm hit on thursday. in fact, even before that, we were presalting our streets. we got hit very heavily in the southern portion of the city of buffalo. south buffalo, keiser town, over four feet of snow. other parts of the city, where the snow band shifted north last night, we got hit between 1 to 2 feet of snow. so, we've got crews working the mains and secondaries. and in the southern portion of the city, we have crews that are actually lifting snow out and moving snow, because there's no place to plow it right now. >> and just so much snow, we're
5:07 am
talking about here. and we also heard from our reporter, mayor, on the ground, you know, the snow is wet, which means it's heavy. which means that if it piles up on a roof or on power lines that could spell danger. >> it really could. the snow has come down very fast, very wet, very heavy. last night, the snow was falling at a rate of 2 to 3 inches per hour. and as your reporter said, that can make driving very treacherous. visibility very, very low. fortunately, we have a break right now, where it's not snowing giving our plowing crews the opportunity to get in, plow snow in other areas. the ability to take snow out with high-lifts and dump trucks so that we can open up our residential streets as well.
5:08 am
>> you know, a lot of communities when you get feet of snow, they would be paralyzed for a week or more. i'm sure you're accustomed to dealing with heavy snowfalls. how long do you think this will take to clear? >> we are accustomed with dealing with heavy snowfalls in the city of buffalo but it is important to note this is beyond the typical snowfall in the city of buffalo, much more than we usually get. we're hoping that the snow will taper off and end completely, sometime early sunday. and that we will get back to a full sense of normalcy in the city monday or tuesday. that is the hope but we'll see what mother nature has in store for us. >> clearly, the snowplows cannot keep up. where are you able to put the snow right now? >> yeah. >> we have a snow fighting plan in the city of buffalo and we have designated areas where snow
5:09 am
can be dumped when we have to haul it out. we're now hauling snow to those areas which will give us the ability to open up the southern portion of the city, that has been hit very hard. over 4 feet of snow in that area. we're asking people to stay off the roads, the driving ban has been in effect in the entire city of buffalo, the entire city, since 8:00 a.m. this morning to give the opportunity to give police the ability to do their work, police, fire, ambulance, and the crews begin to open up the mains and secondaries and residential streets. we're hoping to get back to a sense of normalcy monday or tuesday. but this has been a very unpredictable storm, with the snow bans moving back and forth, north to south.
5:10 am
mostly hovering over the southern portion of our community. >> it's time to hunker down. mayor byron brown, thank you so much for speaking with us this morning. we issue you the best, and please stay safe. cnn meteorologist allison chinchar is following this from the cnn weather center, of course. so, look, it's not yet over. you heard the mayor say he's hoping it to clear by monday or tuesday. what are they in for between now and then? >> you're going to have a few more rounds to go through in that time line. here's a look at where it's snowing right now. yes, it's just north of buffalo. just to north of watertown. but we also have other areas getting hit hard right now because of that wind shift. again, we're getting a little bit of a break. but it is going to come back down into buffalo. come back into watertown. we anticipate that later this evening, right after dinnertime, and we'll continue to the overnight hours. it's going to look a lot like
5:11 am
this. this was taken yesterday in buffalo. you can see it's not snowing where the camera itself is located. just a mile or two off in the distance, that snow is coming down in blankets. as we mentioned, two, three, as much as five inches an hour at times in the last 36 to 48 hours. yesterday, buffalo topped out at 14 inches, a daily record for the city. but if you go just a few miles away in several different directions, you're talking natural bridge getting to almost 6 feet of snow. orchard park, blazedale, hamburg, topping out at 60 inches of snow. for those of you who don't know the locations on the map, you can see a lot focuses in on the northern watertown region, also buffalo, stretching to erie, pennsylvania. those have been the target points in the last couple of days in terms of snow. and they're the same areas that are going to continue to see snow in the next 48 hours.
5:12 am
but areas like not just erie, or ontario, you also have superior and michigan, experiencing lake-effect snow through sunday. in all, we're looking at most areas picking up at least another half a foot to 12 inches. one key thing to note, martin and amara, some areas could pick up to 2 feet on top of 4 to 6 feet that's fallen. >> it's just stunning the difference you can have within a few miles. the other thing is thundersnow. >> right. >> they have incorrectly intense thunderstorms sometimes embedded within these blizzards which is striking for them. >> probably spectacular but frightening. allison chinchar, appreciate it, thank you. u.s. attorney general merrick garland has appointed new york attorney jack smith as special prosecutor to oversee the federal investigations into trump's role leading into the january 6th insurrection and also into the classified documents that were found at
5:13 am
mar-a-lago. >> and sources tell cnn that federal prosecutors have sent out several new subpoenas related to both investigations in recent days. cnn's evan perez is joining us this morning, to talk more about this. good to see you, evan. >> good morning. let's first talk about the significance of this. and you know, why the doj felt that this was the right time to appoint a special counsel. >> well, look, this is not a very common thing at the justice department. they are very reluctant to appoint special counsels, but this is all really triggered by the fact that the former president declared just a few days agatha he is running for the presidency one more time. and for, the former president, at least people around him, one of his motivations, they said, was the fact that he thought, certainly, that by declaring, it would make it less likely for the justice department to bring
5:14 am
charges. instead, what it has triggered, this unusual appointment of a special counsel, jack smith is being brought in to oversee two investigations. and what this appointment by merrick garland, the attorney general, makes clear, amara and martin, is that not only donald trump under investigation for these classified documents retrieved by the fbi that very unusual, very historic, frankly, search of mar-a-lago in august, but he's also front and center of this investigation looking forward to the effort to impede the transfer of power. that is another thing that the justice department had really not said much about publicly. we know now, that jack smith is going to be overseeing it, that the former president is at the center of that. >> evan, how is the former president and team responding to all of this? >> predictable, right. the former president has said that he is not going to
5:15 am
participate. that's one of the things he said last night in a very long rambling speech at mar-a-lago. his appointment -- his spokesman and his lawyers have a very -- have various reactions. one of them says that this is a political stunt by the justice department, his spokesman, but some of this lawyers also point out that the former president is understandably very upset about this. because what this means is that this investigation is not wrapping up very soon. it's probably going to be something that's going to hang over him for a while. >> and tell us more about special counsel jack smith, who is he and he's got quite the cv. >> yeah, he does. look, the department looked far and wide to rye to figure out a person who could sustain or survive, quite frankly, the partisan scrutiny, they're about to get, and they landed on a war crimes prosecutor, he has been
5:16 am
at the hague and investigated prosecutions related to crimes at kosovo. before that, he ran a public integrity, public corruptions at the justice department. previously he was assistant u.s. attorney in tennessee. and he also has some past in the new york, manhattan d.a.'s office. so there's a lot of experience he has. and at least from the justice department's perspective, they believe he has no partisan meaning, and can oversee the investigation, this very obviously, political sensitive investigation in these time. >> quite a notable development. evan perez, appreciate you joining us. thank you so much. and as the university of idaho mourns the loss of four students killed last weekend in a brutal stabbing offcampus, new details emerging.
5:17 am
the coroner says the students were likely asleep before being attacked. and that each person was stabbed multiple times likely from the same weapon and that some of the victims had defensive wounds indicating there was possibly a struggle. >> police also say that the night of the stabbing, two of the victims used a private party, their words, to get a ride home from a food truck. not an uber driver as was previously believed. investigators also note there was no signs of forced entry into that home. that the two surviving roommates who are the males seen in the food truck video are not involved in the crime. and announcing a democratic bid for leadership as house speaker nancy pelosi announces she's stepping down. what it means for the future of the party. plus, a website meltdown, sky high prices and completed chaos to snag taylor swift
5:18 am
concert tickets. and now ticketmaster is under scrutiny and, yes, facing major backlash. also, we're just a day away from the world cup put there's no shortage of controversy surrounding the game. now fifa's president is lashing out at critics. if advanced lung cancer has you searching for possibilities, discover a different first treatment. immunotherapies work with your immune system to attack cancer. but opdivo plus yervoy is the first combination of 2 immunotherapies for adults newly diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer that has spread, tests positive for pd-l1, and does not have an abnormal egfr or alk gene. opdivo plus yervoy is not chemotherapy, it works differently.
5:19 am
it helps your immune system fight cancer in 2 different ways. opdivo and yervoy can cause your immune system to harm healthy parts of your body during and after treatment. these problems can be severe and lead to death. see your doctor right away if you have a cough; chest pain; shortness of breath; irregular heartbeat; diarrhea; constipation; severe stomach pain; severe nausea or vomiting; dizziness; fainting; eye problems; extreme tiredness; changes in appetite, thirst or urine; rash; itching; confusion; memory problems; muscle pain or weakness; joint pain; flushing; or fever. these are not all the possible side effects. problems can occur together and more often when opdivo is used with yervoy. tell your doctor about all medical conditions including immune or nervous system problems, if you've had or plan to have an organ or stem cell transplant, or received chest radiation. your search for 2 immunotherapies starts here. ask your doctor about opdivo plus yervoy. a chance to live longer.
5:20 am
there's a different way to treat hiv. it's every-other-month, injectable cabenuva. for adults who are undetectable, cabenuva is the only complete, long-acting hiv treatment you can get every other month. cabenuva helps keep me undetectable. it's two injections, given by my healthcare provider, every other month. it's one less thing to think about while traveling. hiv pills aren't on my mind. a quick change in my plans is no big deal. don't receive cabenuva if you're allergic to its ingredients or taking certain medicines, which may interact with cabenuva. serious side effects include allergic reactions post-injection reactions, liver problems, and depression. if you have a rash and other allergic reaction symptoms,
5:21 am
stop cabenuva and get medical help right away. tell your doctor if you have liver problems or mental health concerns, and if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or considering pregnancy. some of the most common side effects include injection-site reactions, fever, and tiredness. if you switch to cabenuva, attend all treatment appointments. every other month, and i'm good to go. ask your doctor about every-other-month cabenuva. two loads of snot covered laundry. only one will be sanitized. wait, what? adding lysol laundry sanitizer kills 99.9% of bacteria detergent alone, can't.
5:22 am
speaker nancy pelosi's announcement that she'll step down from leadership ushers in a whole new potential generation and change for democrats. congressman hakeem jeffries launches a historic bid to succeed pelosi in what would make him the first black person to lead a party in congress. >> yeah, meantime, as republicans move into the majority, their agenda is coming into view with an announcement that they intend to investigate president biden and his family's business dealings among many other things. here to discuss with us now is republican strategist brian robinson. and democrat sick strategist howard franklyn.
5:23 am
welcome both, gentlemen. >> good morning. >> so glad you could make it in here. so, let's start with nancy pelosi. you know, they made her announcement that she'll be stepping down from the speakership, but she'll stay in congress. but talk to me about her legacy. she did talk about in her speech there, she wants to usher in the next generation. you know, hakeem jeffries is, you know, jockeying for that position. tell us how this transition is going to look like, and, you know, a little bit about her legacy as well? >> yeah, 35 years in congress. 20 years at the helm of democratic leadership. i would say this transition is going to look like a lot like the time she's been in congress. a lot has been difficult, but she's made it look so easy. never having lost four votes when taking a position. and one of the stellar operators in washington, d.c. i think a lot of her former colleagues, folks in the senate
5:24 am
now, folks who have served alongside her have said just how impactful she's been and how she's overseen really important legislation that's come through the last 20 years, kind of the political tumult that we're dealing with. >> with the political factions, right, with the democratic party? >> that's right. >> brian, let me ask you, we have with the republicans getting in the house, the first thing they announce the investigation, rather than focusing on the agenda, and the economy and dealing with crime and the border. is that the right move? >> i would come right out of the gate talking about inflation and crime. it's what the republicans across the country ran on. now, what is going to happen, there is this built-up demand among the republican base, among the voters to get revenge. there is this angst among republicans that the entire trump administration was one investigation after another which they found completely
5:25 am
phony. witch hunt to use the word that trump uses. but, look, we've got to capture the middle in this country if we're going to get more than a two or three-seat majority in the future. you do that by taming inflation and being serious on issues like crime. being serious on issues like how do we confront the challenge that china presents over the next generation. >> i guess focusing on investigating, instead of investigating is really the only lever they'll have at this point. republicans won't be able to advance much legislation if they do get it together beyond the house. >> that's a great point, amara. and just to agree, it's a pragmatic approach as hard as that is to believe because, no, they're not going to address inflation. here's the issue with addressing inflation. there's no easy answer. anything that fixs it is going to be hard to get to and probably induce a recession. nobody ran for congress promising to induce a recession.
5:26 am
but investigation is all you need all you need is a gavel. and republicans will have all the gavels. >> sure. we'll go back and forth here, brian, let me ask you this, donald trump announces he's going to run in 2024, not a real surprise. i suppose. but already, we're seeing not the support we had seen previously especially among voters. is that a concern? >> i think it's a concern for donald trump. i think it's a sign of a healthy party that we're having this debate two years out. and looking at who the future may be. the democrats are going through that transition. maybe the republicans are going through it as well. moving to someone who may also be an octobergenarian the next e they took office. but brian kemp right here in georgia had a huge victory over a nationally own stacey abrams. he's got to be in the corporation. republicans have a lot of talent coming up, you're seeing not
5:27 am
only officeholders but trump supporters, undermining him greatly, showing that desantis has beaten trump in all of these stateses that elector important. >> brian, what's going to happen with democrats now that they don't have control of both chambers. it's been a majority in the last few years. are they going to rely on the president for executive order? what's next? >> that's a good question. i don't know that democrats have figured that out. with the early leadership in congress and the amount of diversity brought to you. a lot with republicans so far when you hear a lot about investigations and impeachment, you are going to hear from this new democratic minority in congress, how do we fix the issues around inflation, et cetera. i think we'll have a new generation of problem solvers who are going to lean into those challenges. i think they will have president biden's back.
5:28 am
it will be a phalanx of leadership. but we don't know whether there's an appetite between the senate democratically held and the house republican held. >> real quick, who is going to win the herschel walker and raphael warnock? >> i'm betting on senator warnock. just the dynamics have really shifted in his favor since the election. he was the top vote-getter in the general election. but also the lack of fervor for control for republicans from the senate i think takes the steam out of the walker camp. >> brian, do you agree with that? >> traditionally, in georgia, the second place finishers wins the runoff. we've seen that over and over again including with governor kemp in his primary in 2018. it's hard to be the incumbent a talented candidate, herschel walker has got 40 years of being
5:29 am
beloved by bulldogses like me. don't ever count him out. >> we'll see if one will win out over the other, brian and howard, appreciate you both joining us. thank you so much. all right. up next, taylor swift is breaking her silence over the ticketmaster failed fiasco. it comes as we learn about the ticketetmaster investigation in the company. we'll discuss, ahead. evenen when you're not workin. they'll look at yoyour full financial picture and help you create a flflexible strategy designed to balance growth potential and guaranteed income. so you can stop worrying about the future and enjoy the life you've created. that's the planning effect. from fidelity.

♪ baby we've got bad blood bad blood ♪ ♪ take what you've got 'cause baby ♪ that is so appropriate because there is bad blood definitely between taylor swift and ticketmaster after that chaotic sale of tickets for swift's latest tour. >> is that martin bobbing his head and singing?
5:34 am
>> if you don't know about the story, i don't know what rock you've been under. sales for the new tour "eras" began tuesday, bogging down the site, infuriating fans who could not get tickets. in an instagram post, blaming ticketmaster for a rocky rollout. and why fans had hard times getting those tickets. now fans, lawmakers and authorities are calling for ticketmaster to be investigated, criticizing the company's control of the live music industry. joining me now to talk more about that is diana moss who is president of the american antitrust institute. good morning to you. and thank you very much for joining us. >> good morning. >> it is hard to overstate how infuriated fans of taylor swift are to this. but there is no question that politics are now starting to get involved and tennessee's
5:35 am
jonathan skavetti is going to look into whether consumer protection laws were violated after the ticket sale. are these issues that can be addressed at a state level, do you think? >> i think they are. i think we're in a moment here where the museic power has appreciated the monopoly. this goes back ten years to the merger in 2010 which was really a failure of event trust enforcement who has let that through. now, we're doing a lot of damage control, frankly, and cleanup, and that will carve-out a role for the state attorneys generals. but also for the department of justice and also potentially private antitrust suits. >> so, i'm in a quandary here, how much of this is just a technological breakdown because
5:36 am
you had a talent that everyone just wants to go see the show. and the system was overwhelmed. and how much of this really reflects on the monopoly aspect which seems to be the point that congress wants to investigate or states want to investigate? >> good question. i think it's some of both, right? there was an incredible demand for taylor swift concert tickets. but one thing we can say, the crash of the ticketmaster platform is symptomatic of what we see with firms with tremendous market power. right. monopolies don't have much incentive to innovate to provide high-quality service to fans. they have lots of incentives to protect their market power and to exploit their market power, and ticketmaster does that on their platform. and you know, their platform is sort of a combination, a toxic cocktail of preventing fans from getting tickets on the resell
5:37 am
markets. of offering up ticketmaster ticketing services first, before any other competitors. but generally, there's very little incentive for monopolies to really innovate and provide high-quality service. but i do think that it is very symptomatic of what we have seen now for 12 years which is ticketmaster going to all lengths to lock music fans and, frankly, artists because their mon nopoly extends all the way to the market. where they have talent incredible marketing power north of 60%. and have really engaged in practices for years that restrict the resell market. that train and harass the independent promoterses rs ands and so this is all coming to a
5:38 am
head here, in revealing how harmful and damaging a monopoly can be. >> so, we've got less than a minute left. what's the fix? what do you see? is it simply splitting up, taking ticketmaster away from livenation which would remove some of the verticality here? what's the answer? >> i think it's to inject into the sector and to increase choice for fans and artists to lower those ticket fees which can be in excess of 25% of ticket prices. and it's a two-prong approach. we absolutely need an antitrust case brought against ticketmaster. a monopoly case. we need a remremedy. doj can do that alone or with the states but we as need to deal with transparency and
5:39 am
transferability. it's very difficult for fans to engage in the resell markets which are supposed to be very beneficial. >> right. >> making sure that supply equals demand. so, we need this two-pronged approach, legislation and an antitrust case. >> unfortunately, i don't think any of that is going to come in time to assuage those taylor swift fans. diana moss, great to see you this morning. thank you very much for your insight. >> thank you. >> we're talking about this, that's for sure. coming up, high food prices have americans bracing for a costly thanksgiving this year. up next, we're going to take you to one community where leaders are stepping up to help put food on the table.
