tv   CNN Newsroom With Brianna Keilar  CNN  March 17, 2021 11:00am-12:00pm PDT

11:00 am
. hello i'm brianna keilar. and moments ago the president spoke about the killing spree in georgia that put americans across the country on edge. this after months of asian-american attacks that many say were original eight natured by the racist attacks against asians from mc. >> the question of motivation is still to be determined. but whatever the motivation here, i know that asian-americans are in very -- very concerned.
11:01 am
because as you know, i've been speaking about the brutality against asian-americans for the last couple months. and i think it's -- it is very, very troublesome. but "i" making no connection at this moment for the motivation of the killer. i'm waiting for an answer. >> police say the man arrested for the rampage has admitted to the shootings. eight people are dead in a ninth wounded in the atlanta area. but as you heard from the president it's not clear if anti-asian racism was the motivation here. six victims were asian women. the other two victims were white. investigators say robert aaron long gunned down four people first in a spa in cherokee county and shot a fifth who is expected to survive. investigators say long then traveled less than an hour south to atlanta, shooting and killing four more people at two massage businesses across the street from each other. today the sheriff in cherokee county where long is in custody says he is talking to convertings and telling them a
11:02 am
sexual addiction drove him to violence. cnn's natasha chen is in atlanta. and natasha, officials say the suspected gunman was headed to florida when he was arrested. it also seems like there are some outstanding questions when it comes to the motive. >> reporter: absolutely, brianna, there are a lot of questions left. yes, the authorities believe that he was on his way to florida when they stopped him. it required a pit maneuver. it was aided by the fact that the family called police when they saw his images released by police in surveillance video, surveillance images. they were able to track the suspect's can cell phone. here is what they said about catching him on his way south. >> so the police then also were talking to the press today at a press conference about the fact that they interviewed him, that he talked about a potential
11:03 am
sexual addiction. now cnn also learned by speaking to a former roommate of long, that' spent some time in 2020 at a transition house and had spent time in rehab for sexual addiction. this roommate asked not to be named and also did not specify where the transition house even was and what state it was in. that this roommate did say, though, that he never heard long say anything racial, that he seemed to harbor a lot of self-hatred, and that these acts yesterday didn't make sense to this roommate. so a lot of questions there as well as far as going back and seeing what might have led up to this, brianna. >> i'm sorry. we didn't have the sound byte ready on the moving on to florida. and the potential of that. but i'm glad you brought that up, natasha, because this was one of -- there were many interesting parts of the press conference. but this was perhaps the most alarming because it sounded like according to officials this could have been so much worse. >> absolutely.
11:04 am
and what they said during the press conference is that he seemed to be proceeding to florida to potentially carry out more similar attacks. that's what the mayor of atlanta said. and she said that it was the quick action of multiple law enforcement agencies that really stopped this from becoming significantly worse yesterday. >> yeah. definitely. natasha, thank you so much. reporting live from atlanta. i want to turn to georgia state representative sam park, a democrat. charka county, sir, the investigators this at this point they say this does not appear that anti-asian hate was behind the attacks. it appears so far they may be going on the report from the suspect who is blaming a sexual addiction. is that your understanding? do you have any additional questions? >> that's the information that we have received so far. i'm happy to be here with you brianna. all that to say, you know, there are six asian-american women who
11:05 am
are no longer with us. and i think it's important to make sure that, you know, we provide as much support to the victims and families during this difficult time. >> definitely. and i think, you know, looking at this be, they look at -- they have fears already, the asian-american community in this country, because they have been watching -- i mean, the anecdotal reports are backed up by the numbers, the statistics, that they are increasingly experiencing hateful rhetoric, that they are experiencing crimes against them because they are of asian descent. what have you been hearing from your community about what they have been experiencing when if comes to harassment and discrimination and violence? >> so there's been a lot of concern with the asian-american community, particularly given the surge in violence and discrimination we have seen over
11:06 am
this past year. a lot of it being driven by racist political rhetoric. and i think that context is important, again, regardless of the motivation, given the concerns the community already has, in light of all the attacks we have seen, particularly against asian-american women and the elderly. i thinks in a reminder in which we need to do everything we possibly can to protect the most vulnerable among us. >> there are certainly some actions that are being taken legislatively. what else would you like to see? what do people need to know to make sure that people stay safe? >> particularly for asian-americans, you can maybe -- maybe facing discrimination or hate or feel unsafe, make your voice heard. reach out to your community members. reach out to elected officials, law enforcement. and raise those concerns so that we can do as much as we can to
11:07 am
provide support and hopefully prevent tragedies like this from happening moving forward. >> representative sam park. thank you for joining us today. >> thank you for having me. president biden is making many headlines in an interview with abc news today. i wanting to to go through each of them before we discuss them because there are quite a few. let's start with hig take on the filibuster. up until now he has been opposed to get rid of it to maintain rules of the senate. but he now says maybe they should only preserve the talking version of the filibuster. >> i don't think you have to eliminate the filibuster. you have to do what it used to be back in the old days when we used to be around there. that is a filibuster you had to stand up and command the floor. and keep talking on. you couldn't call for a -- no one could say, you know quorum call. one you stopped talking at a that you lost the option and
11:08 am
someone could move the question. >> you're for bringing back the talking filibuster. >> "i" that's what it was supposed to be. >> biden also dismissed the suggestions that he is encouraging migrants to come to the u.s. as his administration struggles to process thousands of unaccompanied minors. >> i can say quite clearly don't come. we are in the process of getting set up. don't leave your town or city or community. >> and this was significant. he weighed in on calls for new york governor andrew cuomo to resign as investigations have begun into sexual harassment allegations against him and over his handling of covid nursing home deaths. >> if the investigation confirms the claims of the women, should he resign? >> yes, i think he probably end up being prosecuted too. a woman should be presumed to telling the truth and should not be scapegoated and become victimized by coming forward. number one. but there should be an investigation to determine what she says is true.
11:09 am
>> and on foreign policy, president biden had tough words for russia. >> you know, vladimir putin. you think he is a killer. >> um-hum, i do. >> what price must he pay. >> the prices going to pay, you'll see shortly. >> he says there will be consequences for russia's interference in the u.s. elections. >> he will pay a price. we in a long talk he and i. i know him relatively well opinion and the confidential started off i said i know you and you know me. if i establish this occurred then be prepared. >> this also stood out. biden admitting it's going to be tough to meet president president trump are trump's lyman of getting all troops out of afghanistan by may 1st but he said his predecessor is partly to blame for this. >> the failure to have of an orderly transition from the trump presidency to my presidency, which usually takes place from election day to the time you're sworn in, has cost
11:10 am
me time and consequences. that's one of the issues we are talking about now. in terms of afghanistan. >> let me -- >> biden talked about his vice-president kamala harris. he said that on these tough decisions she is filling very much the same role that he did as vice-president to former president obama. >> i'd give my opinion as the last guy and i get to leave. but he is all by himself to have to make that decision. that's the big difference. >> is vice-president harris the last person in the room. >> most of the time, yes as a practical matter, yeah, she is. >> and biden made sure to encourage people to get their covid vaccines knocking down the idea that resisting it is somehow a badge of honor. >> i honest to god thought that once we guaranteed we had enough vaccine for everybody things bo start to calm down. well they have calmed down a great deal. but i just don't understand this sort of macho thing about i'm
11:11 am
not getting the vaccine. i have a right as an american, nigh freedom to not do it. why don't you be a patriot, protect other people. >> a lot to talk about there. joined by cnn chief political correspondent dana bash just to do that. let's talk first, dana, about the filibuster, because this is the first time we heard president biden open to the idea of changing the filibuster rules. so tell us what that would mean for the filibuster effectively. >> well, let's start with what is the bill fuvrt, because we've been hearing about it. we talk about it as if it's second nature. but a lot of people doesn't don't know its genesis. george washington was to have said to thompson jefferson that they should create the senate to cool house legislation like a saucer cools hot tea. but the notion of a filibuster is no in the constitution. it's a practice of what is effectivively endless debate that evolved and became more
11:12 am
common as time went on. early on in american histories senators did not use endless debate to obstruct legislation they didn't like. it wasn't until the mid-1800s more and more senators began to talk legislation to death that they opposed. it started happening so much in the mid-19th century that the term filibuster was born drvd from the dutch word free booter and the spanish word filibuster os raiding a island. but there was no mechanism to overcome filibusters for the centurien a a quarter. >> free booter. is that what you said. >> that's the word. >> i wish that's what they called it. then everyone would pay attention. how and when did the senate change the rules to get around this talking a bill to death? >> it wasn't until 1917 that this happened. it was at the urging of a frustrated president woodrow wilson that the senate adopted what is known as rule 22,
11:13 am
allowing senators to vote to break a filibuster. and it was still is known as you know brianna as invoking cloet yur. the first time the rule was used was to overcome the filibuster for the treaty of versailles in 1919. but at first the threshold was supermajority, 67 votes. but that became too hard to reach. so in 1975 it was brought down to the 60 votes we have today. >> that's very interesting. and you know, people look back, look at the filibuster say it's a relic of jim crow. explain that. >> because southern senators took advantage of the filibuster for years to block civil rights legislation. including anti-lynching bills. you see strom thurmened there in 1957. he spoke for 24 hours 18 minutes against the civil rights act of 1957. that was the longest uninterrupted filibuster in senate history. it wasn't until 1964 that senators finally overcome the filibuster to pass the large
11:14 am
simple rights bill under lyndon johnson's watch. you remember, brianna i think we covered at the senator hat 2013 pb, the majority leader harry reid got so fed up he made a change for judicial nominees and executive branch nominees now only need a simple majority. >> you mentioned that thurmened talked more than 24 hours. i think the filibuster or free booter or fill burts ohs with -- i love the words -- we are familiar with those from mr. smith goes to washington where jimmy stewart talked for a day straight until he was like crazy. that's not done much anymore. occasionally i remember when i covered the hill we'd see the cots rolled out overnight occasionally. that is the part of reform president biden is talking about. >> that's right what happened in recent years is that senators use the filibuster so much that the expectation is that legislation will need 60 votes to pass.
11:15 am
it's kind of baked in. majority leads tend to schedule the cloet yur vote to overcome a 60 vote threshold right away. the talking filibuster would be more of a change in practice than senate rules. for senators to do what you are looking at here. this happened the past ten years or so, rand paul stood up and talked for like 13 hours about the use of military drone strikes. ted cruz filibustered obamacare. but so here is the thing. this is important. experts that i talked to say that they don't really expect that the talking filibuster would do much to change obstruction. and here is why. let's say republicans are fill unfortunate bustering hr one the voting rights legislation. if they have 25 gop senators or ten or five who want to talk and take turns going through the night and talking days and days. they can. the process would change. but the result may not, bri. >> dana, that was quite the tutorial.
11:16 am
i appreciate it dana bash thank you. >> thanks. and next the cdc says it may change its travel guidance for people who have been axe eighted. this as dinnedless in california announces plan to reopen. plus mitch mcconnell tries todown play president biden's achievements op the rollout. and new migrant children not showering for days. sleeping in shifts because of a lack of space. an immigration attorney helping families at the border right now joins me live.

dinned lz and the sister park california adventure will end the year long closure. there will be limited capacity. but park officials say more than 10,000 cast members return to work. here are other coronavirus headlines from correspondents around the globe. >> i'm elizabeth cohen. today the director of the u.s. centers for disease control told congress that vaccinated people may be getting some new advice about travel. last week the cdc said that people vaccinated still should not travel but she said that that may change. and she said the question about travel for vaccinated americans is a key question. >> in berlin as the european union has unveiled its plans for a green travel certificate or a vaccination passport. essentially what this is supposed to be, supposed to give people vaccinated the chance to
11:22 am
travel within the european union more freely. but it's not only for people searching the vaccine but also for no objection who have a negative pr test or for people who have already had covid-19 and therefore have antibodies. now the european union says it wants the project on the way by summer ready for the summer travel season. >> i'm paula newton in ottawa. canadian public health officials say despite european concerns they are expanding the rollout of the astrazenica vaccine to include those over 65. officials say they have seen the data, believe that this vaccine is completely safe, and they are now recommending it for all adults over the age of 18. all of this comes as canada's vaccine rollout continues to go slowly. and that is of concern as this country awaits to see whether or not it will have to go through a third wave of the pandemic. at issue now are those variants which continue to spread throughout the country.
11:23 am
and key, hospitalizations in some hot spots in canada continue to rise. thank you to my colleagues for the reports. president biden says every american should be eligible to receive the coronavirus vaccine by may 1st. even so, senate minority leader mitch mcconnell took to the floor in an apparent effort to take the shine off the biden administration's biggest achievement. >> the president announced another supposedly audacious goal on thursday, that all adults in all 50 states should be eligible to schedule vaccinations by may 1st. here's the problem. dr. fauci said a month ago we'd be there by april. quote. i would imagine by the time we get to april that will be what i would call open season. namely, virtually everybody and anybody in any category could start to get vaccinated.
11:24 am
that was dr. fauci's prediction last month. so the president's announcement of may 1st wasn't ambitious good news. it was actually a walk back. >>s in a stretch. we are talking about the projected date by which all americans should be eligible to receive the vaccine, not vaccinated to be clear. dr. fauci said by april i would imagine. and biden said may 1st which is technically one day after april. that is true. so mitch mcconnell is apparently upset over the difference between six weeks and two days from now versus six weeks and three days from now. now, when only a couple of states have opened up vaccinations to adults of all ages. alaska and mississippi. mcconnell is accusing biden of underpromising to overreform. it is something that biden arguably did with his transition promise of 100 million vaccinations in the first 100 days in office. by the time he entered office, the u.s. was already up to almost ha million dose as day.
11:25 am
it turned turned out to be not hard to hit. but that's not what's happening here with biden's projected date when americans will be eligible to receive a vaccine. mcconnell wants americans to believe that having enough vaccine to have all adults eligible for one by may 1st is not an achievement. he apparently is outraged over a time line that has slid by a day. but that would be very weird from mcconnell who has had no objections to vaccine time line that slid by months. when former president trump promised it would arrive by the presidential election. >> and a safe vaccine is coming very quickly. you are going to have it momentarily. >> we are very close to the vaccine as you know. and i think closer than most people want to say or certainly closer than most people understand. we are on track to deliver and distribute the vaccine in a very, very safe and effective manner. we think we can start sometime in october.
11:26 am
so as soon as it's -- it is announced we'll be able to start. from mid-october on. maybe a little bit later than that. what i said is by the end of the year. but i think it could be sooner that that. it could be during the month of october actually. could be before november. >> we're all set to distribute immediately. as soon as that vaccine comes out, the safe and good and works were pfizer johnson & johnson or anybody else, we are ready to distribute it very rapidly. as scott said, and as you're team knows -- and they're ready. and that could be -- it could be in october sometimes in october or november. i don't think it's going to be much later than that. but i think it could be sometime in october. >> we'll be able to distribute at least 100 million vaccine doses by the end of 2020. and a larnl number -- much sooner than that. >> by the end of 2020 about 2.8 million americans received a dose. mcconnell takes aim at the biden administration for
11:27 am
underpromising and overdelivering. he does after all seem to prefer overpromising and underdelivering. he stood by as former president trump said this. >> it's going to disappear one day it's like a miracle it will disappear. >> we are prepared and doing a great job with it. and tvl go away. just stay calm. >> it's going to go away hopefully at the end of the month and if not soon after that. >> mr. president, you said it was going -- >> it will go away. >> this is going to go away and whether it comes back in a modified form in the fall we'll be able to language it. >> i believe it's going to be gone. >> it's going to be ee radmann rated. >> with or without a vaccine it's going to pass and we'll be back to normal. >> this virus is going to disappear. >> the virus will disappear. it will disappear. >> even without the vaccine the pandemic is going to end. it's going to run its course. it's going to end. >> with the vaccine, the pandemic will obviously end sooner. if enough people choose to get it. as polls show conservatives are more rest sent to get the shot.
11:28 am
perhaps that's where mitch mcconnell could be training his efforts and his outrage instead of splitting hairs with the president, maybe mcconnell could be convis convincing his supporters who don't plan to get the vaccine at all whether eligible for it on april 30th or may 1st. and next, a new u.s. intel report completely debunks the claim of former president trump and his i i ally that is china may have been to blame for the u.s. attacks on the election. plus the president says the russian president is a killer. details for what he says putin will have to pay for.

new evidence that donald trump misled americans as did his enablers. the director of national intelligence, who leads the u.s. intelligence community in charge of 17 agencies and organizations, just put out a new report on the 2020 election. and it says with, quote, high confidence, that china did not interfere in the 2020 election. this is a quote. we assess that china did not deploy interference efforts and considered but did not deploy influence empties intended to change the outcome of the u.s. presidential election. instead, quote, china sought stability in its relationship with the united states and did not view either election outcome as being advantageous enough for china to risk getting caught meddling. this is noteworthy. because for months trump and his
11:34 am
allies talked up china as the real meddler over russia trying to down play putin's efforts. let's roll the the type era tape. >> irch china is the big are problem. it doesn't fit the narrative it's always russia, russia, russia. i say what about china. they don't want to talk about china. they are using the china virus, china must be very happy about it because they hit us with a virus and screw up the election like you will never see. china was behind the interference in the effort to overthrow our government in the election. election fraud. >> when it comes to elections and with the intelligence community has made clear first you have china, which has the most massive program to influence the united states politically. >> i believe it's china. >> what's that. china. >> china more than russia right now. >> yes. >> why do you see that because i have seen the intelligence that's what i have concluded. >> lies. lies giving russia a pass and they didn't end there. trump's own director of national
11:35 am
intelligence john rat cliff wrote a memo claiming the intelligence community undersold the extent to which china interfered in the election. turns out that was bogus. rat cliff's memo is the a example cited by the intelligence community how was politicized in the trump era. the president of the united states misrepresenting threats to his nation to his serve his own interests because trump was incensed by the finding that russia interfered in the 2016 election that he won. . i want in bring in cnn senior political air force analyst. >> it's a big problem when you can't trust your own intel chiefs. that goes for american citizens. it wasn't just the president, president trump at the time saying that china was a bigger threat against u.s. elections but his intel chiefs. it was his attorney general as you just saw in the interview with wolf blitzer. but it's not just americans impacted here. it's our allies.
11:36 am
because let's not forget that china is a big threat. but that's going forward. now you have secretary of state blinken in asia trying to get more of our allies or asian allies onboard to be on the same page with us to fight real problems, ip theft, cybersecurity attacks, democratic values and human rights abuses in china and also what you taking place in the hong kong and aggression in the south china sea. if our allies can't trust our intelligence this is a big problem. that's why all the lies now added up. we see what the reality is. >> president biden is also warning the russia. president that there will be consequences for election meddling. what do you think those consequences could be. >> well that is the big question. of course it was i have to say a bit refreshing to finally hear a president call a spade a spade when asked if vladimir putin is a killer because we know there is a history of his opponents falling out of windows.
11:37 am
things happen. they have heart attacks and obviously the chemical weapons attacks and poisoning of opponents like alexey navalny. the question is what happens next what is vladimir putin going to do? russia recalled the ambassador to the u.s. now. they didn't talk about the interview. but they talked about reassessing and reanalyzeds the relationship going forward. biden can say, yes, he is a killer and i can walk and chew gum at the same time, same said with mbs. it's harder to see where that leads going forward. i think what's ending up happening is after we resign the new start deal another five years we may not have much of a relationship with russia going forward. i don't think biden is interested in having a relationship with vladimir putin. >> it's going to be very interesting to see how this plays out. bianna golodryga thank you very much. president biden telling migrants don't come to the u.s. right now. but already thousands of children and teens held in substandard conditions at the

11:44 am
>> what is the surge? is it -- you mentioned the situation not improving in their home countries. is it also that separation of families is no longer in effect? is this also contributing to the surge? >> you know, we've seen groups of -- waves of people coming to the country for many years. i've practiced 13 years. i've seen it happen multiple administrations. but really the thing is that there was even a surge even after family separation under the trump administration. we have to address the result cause, which is what the biden administration had announced in his bill from the very beginning on the first day in office, giving more -- you know, the biden administration cancelled legal pathways to apply for protection for central america. that is what we are seeing now. but also further cut funding for the region, and adding instability to the asylum
11:45 am
system. so -- so the biden administration is saying they need to get asylum and the immigration system in order. and right now is not the time to come. but people are fleeing from horrible situations, and so they think this is the best thing for them at this time. >> homeland security secretary alejandro mayorkas was testified before congress this morning. and he pushed back on using the word crisis to describe what is happening on the border right now. he offered his own definition. let's listen. >> i will share with you how i define a crisis. a crisis is when a nation is willing to rip a 9-year-old child out of the hands of his or her parent and separate that family to deter future migration. that to me is a humanitarian crisis. >> ruby, i wonder what you think. because when we looked at that
11:46 am
happening in the last administration no doubt that was a crisis. that doesn't necessarily mean what is happening right now on the border is not a crisis. do you see it as a crisis? do you think it matters to recognize it as such so that it will get the attention it needs? >> well, i went to the border three years ago multiple times and still am representing families that were separated under the trump administration. that was a manufactured crisis under the trump administration. we're not seeing a crisis right now. this is not a surge. what we're seeing is that we haven't invested in our immigration system. and we're seeing what's always happening, that we don't have the infrastructure in place. and so people are coming because they are fleeing horrible situations in their home country. but we don't have the systems in place because the biden administration inherited a broken immigration system, especially asylum, which was completely gutted in the last administration.
11:47 am
and what i think the ultimate message should be, this keeps happening but we need to do something different about it. and biden administration has a plan for it. and it shouldn't distract us from the bills that are going to be before congress this week. and we actually need to have immigration reform so that we won't see this in the future. >> ruby powers, thank you for coming on the program. we appreciate it. >> thank you. next, a judge orders the so-called qanon shaman to remain in jail as a new video of him storming the capitol discredits his claims that he was totally peaceful.
