tv   Early Start With Christine Romans and Laura Jarrett  CNN  November 10, 2020 2:00am-2:59am PST

2:00 am
welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world. this is "early start." i'm christine romans. >> and i'm laura jarrett. it's tuesday, november 10th. it's 5:00 a.m. here in new york. and we begin this morning with disruption, disinformation, and denialism over the election results. republicans in washington aided by those on fox unmoved by facts, peddling false hope that trump could some how emerge the winner of this race. it's a strategy rooted in
2:01 am
nothing more than frivolous claims now slowing down critical aspects of the transition including most importantly national security. attorney general bill barr up ending decades of previous guidance now telling federal prosecutors around the country they should look into allegations of voting irregularities before states certify their results. it's a reversal so disturbing that it prompted the top election crimes prosecutor at the department of justice to resign in protest last night. bar sent this letter hours after meeting with mitch mcconnell, the senate majority leader had been viewed as a potential working partner for the president-elect. but mcconnell, still refuses to recognize biden as the rightful winner of this election. >> the system in place to consider concerns and president trump is 100% within his rights to look into allegations of irregularities, and weigh his league options. >> so mcconnell seems determined
2:02 am
to have it both ways. he praised republican gains in the election but would not acknowledge biden's victory on literally the same ballots. republican efforts to sow doubt even extending to the georgia senate race, the georgia secretary of state, a republican rejecting a call from both gop candidates that he resign. they allege mismanagement of the election. they offer zero specifics or evidence. the bottom line, trump remade the gop, now the party clearly believes they need him and his megaphone to galvanize republican voters as he spouts bogus claims of fraud to hold off his inevitable exit. >> reality is setting in that the period leading up to his inauguration may be more challenging than he assumed. of critical importance right now. president-elect biden is not yet receiving highly classified intelligence briefing because as we mentioned yesterday, the trump administration still hasn't officially signed off on
2:03 am
designating biden as the president-elect. now, legal action may be on the table here. cnn's jessica dean joins us live this morning from wilmington. jessica, nice to see you, appreciate you getting up. walk us through what exactly is happening now with the general services administration, essentially digging in, not willing to designate this transition. >> right. well, good morning to you, laura. it's great to be with you guys this morning. look, as is absolutely customary, by this point and in a normal race, ie in 2016. the gsa would go ahead and trigger the formal transition process and that is a formalized process. it allows the president-elect access to money to fund payroll for transition employees, for security, for travel, but even more importantly, maybe, it allows them access to federal agencies. so the people that are going to assume the roles on january 20th are allowed to get in there and begin this process. remember just how big the
2:04 am
federal government is. we're talking thousands and thousands of employees trying to get a handle on where each agency is. trying to get up to speed on where different projects are. and you mentioned also, this is key, access to classified briefings. of course the president would have access to the highest classified information and typically the president-elect begins getting what's known as the presidential daily briefing. the pdb. that has simply not happened. so president-elect biden does not have access to a lot of key information that we would expect he would have access to by this point. and that means he's not getting the most up to date information on whatever is happening in iran or with north korea, whatever the security situation may be. the bottom line on this, laura, is this is not typically at this point in the game. the gsa has tried to compare this to 2000 when al gore and george bush were deadlocked in
2:05 am
florida. remember, that was one state. a much smaller margin, and at this point, the race had not been called by the networks, it was not at this point. it still hung in the balance. this was different, and that is the case that the biden campaign is making that we are now at a very different place in all of this. and as you mentioned, people close to the campaign are now realizing that this may be a lot harder than they thought it would be. president-elect biden himself over the weekend wanted to give republicans time to get used to the results of this election and come around. he thought they would. so far, here we are on tuesday, that has not happened. it remains to be seen. perhaps it will, you know, in the coming days. but if it doesn't. they believe they have a lot of options on the table, including legal options. laura? >> jessica dean thank you so much for that. appreciate it. five minutes past the hour. president-elect biden is not receiving those national
2:06 am
security briefings as president trump deconstructs the entire apparatus as the biden team tries to get in the door. the lame duck could be anything but quiet. the president fired park esper yesterday. a few of top administration officials who would regularly push back on president trump, he's among those who urged the president to release security aid he tried to use as leverage over ukraine that got minimum impeached and tried to distance himself from president trump's photo op where he held up the bible after tear gassing protesters. >> cnn has learned that gina haskell and fbi director chris wray could be in jeopardy. accusing haspel of delaying the release of documents they say would expose deep state plots against the president's first campaign. they have no support for that. fbi director chris wray has provoked the president's ire with his frank testimony about
2:07 am
the threat of white supremacy, and the threat of russian addition information. firing wray, however, would provide an opening to the biden administration of course as wray is only three years into a ten-year term. >> transition trouble overshadowing, biden's biggest priority containing coronavirus. there could finally be mope on the horizon. even more. chop salsas, spoon thick smoothie bowls, even power through dough, and never stall. the ninja foodi power pitcher. rethink what a blender can do. let's be honest. quitting smoking is hard. like, quitting every monday hard. quitting feels so big. so try making it smaller, and you'll be surprised at how easily starting small can lead to something big. start stopping with nicorette.

breaking moments ago, plo secretary general saeb erekat has died of coronavirus after treatment at a jerusalem hospital. he was 65. he was a veteran peace negotiator for the palestinians going back decades, arguing for a two-state solution for the israelis. he is one of the most prominent leaders to die of the virus. >> the last million coming in the last nine days. by far the fastest pace since the pandemic began. the seven worst days of this pandemic have all come in just the last week. the number of americans
2:12 am
hospitalized right now reaching levels not seen since the spring and the summer. ohio now among states warning hospitals may be overwhelmed in the coming weeks. here's one of the doctors on president-elect biden's covid-19 advisory board. >> what america has to understand is we are about to enter covid hell. 120, 130,000 new cases a day, when at one point we were talking about 23 to 25,000 cases a day, just weeks ago. this number is going to continue to increase substantially. we have not even come close to the peak. >> we are about to enter covid hell he says. the map remains a sea of red with case counts worse or holding steady in all 50 states now. there are spikes around the world but the u.s. far outpacing everyone else. three top aides to president trump have tested positive for coronavirus. chief of staff mark meadows, hud secretary ben carson, and david bossy, overseeing the president's legal challenges. several were at the white house
2:13 am
on election night not wearing masks. >> there are promising developments on the vaccine front right now. novavax, the fifth to enter late stage clinical trials later this month. that announcement hours after encouraging early result from pfizer's covid-19 vaccine. dr. anthony fauci says heallp i on the way. >> you have to go through the hoops to make sure the i's are dotted and t's are crossed. we would be giving vaccine to people likely before the end of this year. that is good news. >> good news, but the vaccine will likely come too late to help with the current resurging pandemic we're seeing. states have already raised logistical questions as well about distributing the vaccine. pfizer's vaccine is one that has two doses that have to be delivered at ultra cold temperatures. but it is a positive step. cnn's chief medical
2:14 am
correspondent dr. sanjay gupta has more on this. >> christine and laura, i think that overall, this is good news. i mean, this is the sort of news we have been waiting for, for some time to basically get an idea how were these vaccines actually doing. how much of an impact could they make. you know, nobody had seen this data. the way this works is there's this independent committee that basically unblinds the data and takes a look and that's what happened on sunday. they called the ceo of pfizer and they said the vaccine is showing 90% effectiveness. i did talk to the ceo of pfizer and asked him specifically how big a deal did he think these findings were. >> 90% is a game changer. 90%, now we are hoping to have a tool in your war against in pandemic that could be significantly effective. how long this protection will last is something we don't know right now, but it's part of the objective.
2:15 am
we will follow up the 44,000 people that they received, they are part of this study for two years. and during this follow up, obviously we will be looking also at their ability of the immune response sgs. >> the numbers are surprising to people. the trial had 44,000 people. people get the vaccine, half the group, the other half gets the placebo, and they see what happens. over time, 94 people became infected. the issue was where who was getting infected, placebo group or vaccinated group. you can see the numbers there. you are far more likely to get infected if you're in the placebo group, so much so when you look at the math, it's about 90% effective. there's still a lot of questions. is this enough data. we're still going to collect more. what about safety? they need to follow these patients for at least two months, which would end at the sort of third week, fourth week
2:16 am
of november, and also, we get an idea that it helps prevent infection. it's 90% effective but does it also prevent severe disease in those who become infected. keep in mind, 80% of people, they do just fine on their own. they have minimal or no symptoms. you have to make sure the vaccine is actually helping people who are most likely to get sick from this. vaccine distribution could begin at the end of the year. probably for the general public, christine and laura, we're looking more at the spring and summer of next year to become available. again, all in all good news. >> it was great news on wall street, showing optimism a post-coronavirus is in site. the dough finished up nearly 3%. it had been up double that, and that falls just short of the february closing high. the best gains were in the areas hit hardest by the pandemic. look at amc theaters.
2:17 am
it did last month, it could run out of money by the end of the year. that stock rose 51%. cruise lines like carnival, norwegian, royal caribbean, they also soared. shares of the major airlines rose. a vaccine is critical to getting back to a new kind of normal. there were some notable market losers monday. stocks that have benefitted from millions of people working from home. zoom shares fell 17%. peloton down 20%. clorox fell 10%. you know, laura, the s&p 500 right now is up just about 10% for the year. i mean, think about that, wall street has been doing fine basically, main street and wall street still kind of disconnected here. >> very disconnected. still ahead for you, thousands rush the field, now fans of the fighting irish are going to have to face the consequences.

2:30 am
national security. attorney general bill barr up ending decades of previous guidance. he is now telling federal prosecutor, they should look into allegations of voting irregularities before states certify results. it is a reversal so disturbing it prompted the top election crimes prosecutor of the justice department to resign in protest. barr sent his letter hours after meeting with mitch mcconnell. the senate majority leader had been viewed as a potential working partner for the president-elect. mcconnell refuses to recognize biden as the rightful winner of the election. >> we have a system in place to consider concerns and president trump is 100% within his rights to look into allegations of irregularities and weigh his league options. >> mcconnell seems to want to have it both ways here praising the republican gains in the election but won't acknowledge biden's victory on literally the same ballot. republican efforts to sow doubt even extending to the georgia
2:31 am
senate race now. the georgia secretary of state also a republican i might add rejecting a call from both gop senate candidates for him to resign. they allege mismanagement of the election. they offer zero specifics. bottom line here, trump remade the gop. now the party clearly believes that they still need him and his megaphone to keep galvanizing republican voters even as he spouts bogus and false claims of fraud to hold off his inevitable exit. >> so what does all of this means for the biden transition. for one thing, reality is setting in among biden allies that the period leading up to his inauguration may be more challenging than any of them assumed. of critical importance, president-elect biden is not receiving highly classified intelligence briefings. the trump administration has not signed off on designating biden as president-elect. cnn's jessica dean joins us live this morning from wilmington. hi there. >> well, good morning to,
2:32 am
christine. it's great to be with you guys. look, it's very interesting with the, it's called the gsa, the administration that is supposed to ascertain, which just means essentially validate the winner of the election. and that triggers the official transition process. now, part of that process as christine and laura just explained is the president-elect getting those presidential daily briefings. those are those highly classified intelligence briefings that's critical as the president-elect prepares to move into office. now, so far, all indications are that biden and his advisers are not getting access to that information because this process has not been triggered. joe biden is doing his best to move the process along. take a listen. >> this election is over. it's time to put aside the partisanship, and the rhetoric that is designed to demonize one another.
2:33 am
>> now, typically a president-elect receives these briefings the day after the election. so it is odd that here we are on tuesday morning and this is still not happening, christine. >> on election night, joe biden was really on offense, quick to claim the mantel, he would win, he did win. you know, biden is notoriously different than trump and has preached unity here, but how long until he or someone close to him has to get more aggressive to claim their ground here? >> they're definitely thinking that mother nature to happen. joe biden himself oever the weekend, let's give republicans time to come to terms with the election, to accept the results. let's not press too hard. in that name of unity, and remember at his heart, joe biden is a traditionalist. he believes in the institutions of government. he believes people will ultimately do the right thing. he wanted to give everyone time to do that. but the problem is we continue to move, again, more into in week, and this administration,
2:34 am
this agency that's supposed to be triggering the formal trar transition process is not doing that, comparing it to 2000 when al gore and george bush were deadlocked in florida, which it is not a similar situation because that was one state, smaller margin, and we hadn't called the race at this point. a bigger margin, more states, we have called the race. they do realize now they may have to take other options and legal options may be available to them, but christine, expect to hear a lot more public pressure from biden's surrogates and ally. >> jessica dean bright and early in wilmington, thank you. >> so president-elect biden is not only missing out on national security briefings, president trump is deconstructing the entire national security apparatus as the biden team tries to get in the door. the president fired his defense secretary mark esper on monday, one of the few top administration officials who pushed back on the president. he was among those who urged the president to release the security aid that he was trying
2:35 am
to use as lef rverage over ukra that got him impeached and disagreed on sending in military troops to contain racial justice protesters after the president used esper in a protest. esper tells the military times he has no regrets adding quote who's going to come in behind me. it's going to be a real yes man, and then god help us. >> cnn has learned cia director gi gina haspel and fbi director chris wray could be in jeopardy. the president and allies have become frustrated with haspel, accusi. fbi director wray has provoked the president's ire with the testimony about white supremacy and disinformation. firing wray would provide an opening to the biden administration as wray is three
2:36 am
years into a ten-year term. 71 days until joe biden's inauguration, three questions in three minutes. let's bring in cnn's senior political analyst, john avlon. >> good morning, guys. >> normally we would be talking about who biden is going to put up for important posts like the attorney general, the secretary of state, but instead, we have to dwell on what's happening in this lame duck period because what the republican party is doing isn't just playing games. it's actually sowing distrust in an election, and it's fueling further chaos. look no further than mitch mcconnell saying let's let the process play out. the attorney general has up ended decades of election guidance based on nothing but rumor. the president is tweeting nonstop. this is about national security. i think that people think that it's somehow just about currying favor with the president's ego. biden isn't getting briefed on the most sensitive intelligence aspects. how do you convey how bad this is. >> these people are putting
2:37 am
party over country. they are empowering autocratic instincts, and in their mind, they may say this is about letting the president down easy, and currying benefit for the georgia special election. they're doing something far more dangerous. the firing of the secretary of defense yesterday, and the threats to the director of the fbi, and the director of the cia, underscore that this is, you know, the president may just acting out but the implications are far more serious for the country and the destruction of democratic norms and spreading of disinformation. these people are all culpable for their decisions and they will be viewed in the eyes of history as villains in this effort if they aid and attempt to overturn an election no matter how much they may believe that it's simply catering to one man's ego. a dangerous moment in the country. the system is strong. joe biden won the election, but do not take this moment for granted or allow people to normalize it under the cover of politics. >> sowing mistrust in elections
2:38 am
is affecting the senate race in georgia, both headed to a runoff. both republicans are demanding the georgia secretary of state who is a republican, they're demanding he resign oever the election process. the secretary says he's not going anywhere. the corrosive atmosphere, they are sowing distrust in last week's election, and now the next one. >> you have two republicans saying the republican secretary of state should resign, saying he failed to conduct an honest and transparent election when that's exactly what he has done and why they are upset about it. this is an example of how this entire thing has become a hall of mirrors, and we're not dealing with common facts, and these two republican senators have done themselves great discredit at a time when they are facing a runoff. facts matter and the republican secretary of state saying i'm here to do my job, not to be a hyperpartisan hack like you want
2:39 am
me to be. >> though the president has lost, the country has to confront what he has left behind. we heard from trump voters who refused to accept results and facts. if you want a sense of where the idea is coming from, here it is. >> we don't know how many votes were stolen on tuesday night. we don't know anything about the software that many say was rigged. we don't know. we ought to find out. >> there's no question that mass mail in voting, it's been an unmitigated disaster. we must never allow democrats to force this on our country, given what we're seeing days and days later. >> they want you to believe that this week's vote and same voting counting process is totally normal and above board. do you believe that? they want you to ignore the irregularities, the lack of transparency, the serious instances where the law was broken. >> biden's campaign says they're defending the election. they deny what they're really doing, which is stealing it. >> so they're talking about
2:40 am
stealing votes. there's no evidence of that at all. we could spend time fact checking it, but it would take too long. how on earth is the biden team supposed to get republicans to listen when this is the type of propaganda and misinformation that they're being fed. >> they should be playing offense in the courts to assert their basic rights. they can't act like a partisan lap dog, that's not why the gsa exists. as far as the folks on the right, you can ignore them but also have to talk about facts. making assertions without any evidence. we have to find a way to unite as nation. joe biden has tried hard to do that. some people only respect strength. the country is going to have to be able to overcome these people who are trying to rule if they cannot rule. >> you hear all of these people on the right saying something bad happened, and you say there's no evidence, and say show me the evidence that nothing bad happened. it's completely upside down. how can you have trust in the election system if you have that
2:41 am
kind of -- >> christine is getting riled up at 5:40. >> that's good. get riled up. this matters. the election is over. the counting is still continuing with final tallies, but don't let yourself get set into a place where you feel that disinformation can overwhelm our democracy. it can't. only if we let it. >> they trust the republicans on the down ballot that won, but they don't trust the democrat on the top of the ballot. john avlon, nice to see you. senior political analyst. transition trouble overshadows, joe biden's biggest priority, the coronavirus. the u.s. is the first country to reach 10 million cases of coronavirus. the last million diagnosed in the last nine days, by far, the fastest pace since the pandemic began. the number of americans hospitalized reaching levels not seen since the spring and summer. >> what america has to understand is we are about to enter covid hell, 120, 130,000 new cases a day when at one point we were talking about 23
2:42 am
to 25,000 cases a day, just weeks ago. this number is going to continue to increase substantially. we have not even come close to the peak. >> the map of the country you can see there remains a sea of red with case counts worse or just holding steady in all 50 states now. meantime, three top aides to president trump have tested positive for coronavirus. his chief of staff, mark meadows, hud secretary ben carson, and david bossy, nonlawyer over seeing his legal challenges. several were at the white house on election night seen not wearing masks. the economy needs stimulus even if a vaccine comes. stocks soared on good news from pfizer. wall street is not main street. economists say it's crucial lawmakers don't become lulled into a false sense of complacency or security, or use progress on a vaccine as an excuse to limit or put off relief. lawmakers have to complete the bridge they started building at the beginning o. pandemf the pao
2:43 am
get us to the end of the pandemic when people will feel comfortable going to restaurants and ball games. hopes for a stimulus deal in a lame duck session, debated, failure to provide more aid could mean lasting economic damage. s&p global ratings said even if a vaccine is widely available in the second half of 2021, the hotel industry won't experience a solid recovery until the year 2023. and there is still a jobs crisis right now at this moment. the economy is down 10 million jobs since february. economists at goldman sachs says the job market probably won't recover until 2024. we'll be right back. we are the thrivers.

with a rocky start to the transition in washington, has u.s. diplomats loongiking for guidance on how to discuss the election results. cnn editor nic robertson joins us live in london with more. nice to see you this morning. the diplomats are essentially in
2:49 am
the awkward position of the president's refusing to concede but the election results being clear and the state department in the united states saying nothing? >> this is in the words of one of the diplomats cnn has talked to, a bizarre situation to be in. cnn's talked to five different u.s. diplomats overseas, and they are both frustrated and confused because this is not a normal situation. they would have expected to have guidance from the state department about the transition of power about calling joe biden president-elect, about how they might explain the transition that was coming up or perhaps even been told how to defend president trump's claims of fraud that there's no evidence to back up. they don't have any of that, so, you know, they're dealing with the government's around the world, allies of the united states, enemies of the united states. we think back to that time at the very beginning of the trump presidency where even russia
2:50 am
said we don't know who to call at the state department anymore because the system has been so eviscerated from what it was before. that was their implication. so now you have this situation where diplomats, u.s. diplomats around the world are left hanging. they are the face and the voice of the white house of america of everything that america stands for, a beacon of democracy. its values, with all of these different governments, united states deiplomats are in the position where you have countries with questionable democracies who might be meddling and tainting their own elections of saying don't do that, that's not right, that's not democracy. yet these diplomats now are not being told how to move forward. damaging for the united states' image and reputation, hard for these diplomats. >> hard for these diplomats for sure, but world leaders clearly know what's happening. many have congratulated the

president. they know the truth here. nice to see you, thank you. president-elect joe biden expected to make remarks on the affordable care act, same day as the goes before the supreme court. justices will hear arguments on a case that centers on the long held goal of president trump and other republicans to abolish oba obamacare, health care for millions could be at risk. >> the fate of american health care hangs in the balance. that's because the supreme court at 10:00 this morning will hear arguments on the fate of the affordable care act. the trump administration wants to completely strike the affordable care act down while democrats are arguing to save it. and this all could come down to amy coney barrett, the newest justice, as the deciding vote here. she actually criticized the chief justice john roberts' decision in 2012 to side with the liberals and save the affordable care act. she made that criticism when she was a law professor, but she would not weigh in during her confirmation hearing as to how
2:52 am
she might vote in this case. now, what this all comes down to is the individual mandate. that's because in 2017 congress actually zeroed out this individual mandate, the penalty for people not getting insurance. now republicans are arguing that it effectively is no longer a tax anymore because people are not penalized at this $0 number. the question is, if this is unconstitutional now that congress has essentially eliminated this penalty or this tax for not having insurance, if it's unconstitutional, does the entire affordable care act then get struck down? and of course, it is a huge decision because 20 million people have come to rely on the knock, and now with a global pandemic, this means high stakes. now, of course the supreme court likely won't rule until the spring or the summer, but the fate of american health care hangs in the balance, especially because there is no replacement
