tv   Early Start With Christine Romans and Laura Jarrett  CNN  February 24, 2021 2:00am-2:59am PST

2:00 am
♪ welcome to our viewers in the united states and all around the world. this is "early start." i'm christine romans. >> and i'm laura jarrett. it's wednesday, february 24th. it's 5:00 a.m. here in new york. 2:00 a.m. hin california, where we have new information on tiger woods' condition afternoon his car crash. more on that in a moment but first, prepared for war. federal officials paint a damning portrait of a historic security failure before the deadly attempt to overrun the u.s. capitol. three former officials testified
2:01 am
they did not receive an fbi memo warning of violence and war in washington. >> in a critical hearing on capitol hill, we learned lapses included a missed email. and a larger failure to act on the threat posed by right wing extremists. two officials were at odds on a critical piece of the law enforcement response. when exactly was the national guard requested? >> senator, from my recollection, i did not receive a request for approval for national guard until shortly after 2:00 p.m. >> mr. sund, do you know when you asked for national guard assistance, 1:09 or 2:00 p.m.? >> 1:09. >> from whom did you ask for assistance. >> mr. herbie. >> the chief conversation in that time frame, 1:28, 1:30.
2:02 am
and in that conversation, he indicated that conditions were deteriorating. he might be looking to -- for national guard approval. >> all of this confusion and lack of clarity in the time line, raising the stakes even more for next week's hearing. that one focusing on the defense department and delays in employing the national guard. cnn's jessica schneider reports from washington. >> reporter: laura and christine, this is the first time we've heard directly from the officials who made the decisions on that fateful day, we're now learning they did not have all of the crucial details. they knew there could be violence, but they weren't prepared for the beating of officers from everything from pipes to flag poles. or the fact that rioters had their own radio system to coordinate the attack. now, we know leaders also didn't get alerted to a crucial fbi bulletin. "the washington post" reported last month that the fbi bulletin voted individuals saying be ready to fight. go there ready for war, we get our president or we die.
2:03 am
but steven sund who stepped down as capitol police chief days after the insurrection said he only found out about that bulletin this week. >> i actually just in the last 24 hours was informed by the department that they actually received that report. they received the evening of the 5th. reviewed it. and forwarded over to an official at the intelligence division over at u.s. capitol police headquarters. >> so, you hadn't seen it yourself? >> no, ma'am, it didn't go any further than that. >> reporter: d.c. acting police said more should have been done to alert officials especially since this bulletin was only delivered via email. >> i would certainly think that something as insurrection warranted a follow-up call or something. i think the intelligence did not make it where it needed to be. >> reporter: it was also revealed that most of the police officers were not equipped with riot gear or the right kind of
2:04 am
training to respond to the violence they faced. there will be more details. additional hearings will be held next week with the fbi, and of course, the defense department where will there will be more inquiries and maybe more answers why it took so long to respond. new overnight, tiger woods is awake, responsive and recovering from surgery in a los angeles hospital this morning after that horrifying rollover crash on a dangerous stretch of california road. downhill and winding, local authorities say the stretch is known as a spot where it's easy to pick up speed. overnight, tiger's management team tweeted that he had been through a long surgical procedure on his lower right leg and ankle. doctors say he suffered significant orthopedic injuries. >> tiger was trapped but conscious in his battered suv when emergency responders reached the accident scene early yesterday morning. >> the interior of the cabinet of the vehicle was more or less
2:05 am
impact. the front end was totally destroyed. the bumpers, everything was destroyed. air bags deployed all of that. however, thankfully, the interior was more or less intact which kind of gave him the cushion to survive what otherwise would have been a fatal crash. >> let's go live to ucla medical center in los angeles and bring in cnn's josh campbell. josh, what's the latest at this hour? >> reporter: yeah, good morning. the golfing legend continues to recover at this hour behind me here at ucla harbor medical center. after this crash yesterday, he was brought here, about eight miles from the crash site to the local level 1 trauma center. that's because he received very serious injuries. our colleagues at the los angeles times reporting his injuries included a shattered ankle, two broken legs, two fractured legs, again very serious injuries. this occurred just after 7:00 a.m. local time in the area of
2:06 am
rancho verdes. you can see a very violent collision agency the golf superstar was driving down the hill. authorities say this is a slope known and prone for accidents. take a listen to what the sheriff said about how this violent incident occurred. >> no skid marks no braking. apparently, the first contact was with the center median. from there, then, crossed into the opposing lane of traffic. hit the curve. hit a tree. and there were several rollovers during that process. >> reporter: now, authorities and medical experts say it's nothing short of a miracle that his injuries were not even more severe or possibly fatal, again, going down that slope, the speed, crossing over into incoming traffic into a wooded area. that vehicle rolling over multi time times. authorities say they didn't notice any sign of impairment. after a car accident, they'll look for whether a person is intoxicated or under the
2:07 am
influence of some medication. authorities saying they did not see that, they did not notice that with tiger woods, whenever they responded. again, he was brought to the hospital where we are today where he was recovering from the injuries. it's also worth noting that tiger woods is no stranger to injuries. he his back surgery last month. the fifth surgery of his career. he talked to cbs sports on sunday and was asked if he would be looking forward to competing this april in the masters tournament in augusta. he said he homed so. of course, this raising conditions about what his condition would be, christine, laura. >> josh, thanks so much. tiger's legacy extends far beyond the golf course. will he ever play again? that is the big question here. andy scholes, this accident adds more questions about the legend's future. >> yeah, good morning, christine. no question, tiger woods, he's a legend. i've been to so many golf majors. some when he's playing, some when he's not. there's just a different type of
2:08 am
feel to a tournament when tiger is out there playing. i mean, he brings just so much energy and excitement to the game of golf. at 45 years old, you know, tiger was already basically in the ninth inning of his golf career. one thing for sure, you can't ever count out tiger. in 2019, he won his fifth masters title which was his first major victory in more than a decade. in december, he had that fifth back jurg with the mopes of recovering in time to play the masters this april. over the weekend, tiger hosted the genesis invitational in southern california. yesterday he was on his way to continue shooting a series for golf tv and he gave celebrities lessons, nba great dwyane wade was learning from tiger on monday. >> i picked up the golf club like many in the black community because of tiger woods. i got that opportunity yesterday to get out there and -- you know, he taught me a few things. hopefully, it translates. but, you know, to be out there with the g.o.a.t., in my eyes,
2:09 am
in this sport. and to be able to talk to him about sam and charlie and his father. it was just a great day. >> last time we saw tiger in competition was back in december playing alongside his 11-year-old son charlie until a father and son tournament. so many golfers on the tour idolized tiger growing up. they now call him friend. world number three justin thomas struggled to answer questions ahead of this event in florida. >> i'm sick to my stomach. you know it hurts to see one of your -- now, one of my closest friends, you know, get in an accident. i just hope he's already. just worry for his kids, you know. i'm sure they'll struggle. >> your friends and fans reacting on social media, many offering thaugts and prayers to woods and his family in this difficult time, phil mickelson his rival for so many years
2:10 am
tweeting we are all pulling for you, tiger. we are so sorry you that and your family are going through this tough time. everyone hopes and prays for your speedy recovery. former president trump also released a statement shared by one of his campaign advisers. it reads, get well soon, tiger. you are a true champion. laura, here's hoping tiger recovers and we get to see him back out there one day. >> yeah, certainly glad he's okay. but a long road ahead for him. that is for sure. >> andy, thank you. appreciate it. still ahead for you, a critical tool to stop the pandemic abandoned by the last white house now back on the table. that's a very good question. will there be an ev for me? what about me? an ev for me? what about me? can i get one too? an ev for this princess? what's an ev? and there better be one for me. and what about michelle from michigan? me? what about me? us? will there be an ev for me? me? me? me? me? ♪

2:17 am
and those least able to shoulder the burden has been hardest hit. >> here's what he means, even though the jobless rate fell last month, unemployment much lower for white workers at 5.7%. while the unemployment rate for black workers is 9.2%. you can see the disparities there. the pandemic has forced millions of women to drop out of the labor force to take care of kids or older parents and they aren't counted in the unemployment rate. 2.5 million women have simply dropped out. 5 million jobbed held by women have disappeared since february. powell says some parts of the economy like house having recovered. you're seeing a boom in jobs in some parts. but more help is needed for the overall economy. he testifies again later today. >> christine, why aren't women being counted in the figures? >> it's a funny thing the way the statistics are gathered, really. if you drop out of the labor market. you lost a job but you're not actively looking you're not counted as unemployed. you're counted as unemployed who
2:18 am
are actively looking for another job. there are a lot of people afraid to go back to the old job. there's not a jobe to go back to. the needs trump the need to go back. think about the children, family workers who you've taken from an elder care facility or assisted living and keeping them at home to protect them, that means somebody has got to be home. in many cases that's women. >> that's an undercounting there. >> he's highlighting that and that's important. still ahead, a firm timetable for the house to vote on president biden's coronavirus relief plan. will it pass enough to help all of those at risk of losing unemployment benefits yet again? we have a live report from capitol hill, next. so that's what we give you. introducing career services for life. learn more at phoenix.edu dry, distressed skin that struggles? new aveeno® restorative skin therapy.

>> good morning, laura. i'm christine romans. 31 minutes past the hour. we're going to have live updates on tiger woods' condition. new details tonight after his car crash. that comes in a moment. but first, protesters preparing for war, the capitol police in the dark. former security officials paint this damning portrait of historic security failure before that deadly attempt to overrun the u.s. capitol. three former officials testified they did not receive a critical fbi memo, saying these protesters were preparing for war. lapses included a larger failure to act on the threat posed by right wing extremists. >> two top officials were at odds on two critical pieces of law enforcement response here. when exactly was the national guard requested? >> senator, from my recollection, i did not receive a request for approval for national guard until shortly after 2:00 p.m. >> mr. sund, do you know when you asked for national guard
2:32 am
assistance? was it 1:09 or was it 2:00 p.m. >> it was 1:09, sir. >> 1:09. who did you ask for assistance, mr. irving, in the company of mr. stenger as well. >> first conversation with mr. sund in that time frame was 1:28, 1:30. and in that conversation, he indicated that conditions were deteriorating. he might be looking for national guard approval. >> fuzzy time line here raising the stakes even more for next week's hearing, that one focused on the defense department in deploying the national guard. more on that in a few minutes. new this morning, tiger woods is awake, responsive and recovering from surgery in a los angeles hospital after a horrifying crash on a dangerous stretch of california road. downhill and winding, authorities say it's a spot known as a spot to easy to pick
2:33 am
up speed. overnight, the team reported that he had been through extensive surgery in his right lower ankle for, quote, significant injuries. >> tiger was conscious at the scene when emergency responders reached the scene early yesterday morning. cnn's josh campbell is live at ucla medical center in l.a. josh, the medical examiner said this crash could have killed tiger who thankfully was wearing a seat belt. >> reporter: absolutely, you look at the images of the crash that occurred here in the south los angeles area. it's nothing short of a miracle that the injuries were not severe. tiger was traveling in an suv going down the hill. crossed over into incoming traffic into a wooded area. that vehicle flipping, rolling multiple times sheer miracle that the injuries are not worse than what they are. he is here at this level 1
2:34 am
trauma center. we're told he's received severe injuries to his foot, fractured legs. they've been stabilized with the insertion of rods and pins. again that surgery occurring yesterday. he is recovering now. this happened just after 7:00 a.m., authorities received that call, within a matter of six minutes emts were on the scene. take a listen to what the responding officer said. the first person who arrived at this crash. >> i asked him what his name was. he told me his name was tiger. at that moment, i immediately recognized him. i asked him if he knew where he was, time of the day to orient him. he seemed as though he was lucid and calm. >> reporter: now, authorities say there were no signs of impairment. that's typical in an accident. they will try to investigate whether the person was under the influence or impairment. authorities saying they did not notice that. again, just a violent incident yesterday. it appears as though speed was
2:35 am
likely the issue. authorities say the investigation continues as they continue to determine the cause of that accident. tiger woods is here at thick trauma center recovering at this hour from those very serious injuries. >> you look at that crumbled car and you realize how much worse this could be. josh, thank you so much. >> more question about his future, i want to bring in andy scholes. andy, his legacy extends far behind the golf course. i was talking to my sons last night, they say pele, tiger, ali, this is someone larger than life in sports. >> certainly, christine, arguably, no one in history has changed the word the way tiger woods has for golf. he brought so many eyes to the game. so many people growing up want be to be like tiger. i've been to a number of golf majors, such a different feel to when tiger is out there competing compared to when he's not. just the energy, excitement. at age 45, tiger basically
2:36 am
already in the nine indianaing of his golf career. one thing for sure, you can't ever count him out. in 2019, he won his fifth national title, his first victory in more than a decade. he told cbs' jim nantz over the weekend, he still hopes to play in the masters in april despite that surgery. >> a little stiff. i have one more mri scheduled so that we'll see if it's scarred over and finally i can do more activity. >> seven weeks from today, final round of the masters, are you going to be there? >> god, i hope so. i got to get there, first. >> yeah, now, over the weekend, tiger hosting the genesis invitational in southern california. yesterday he was on his way to continue shooting a series for golf tv and golf digest where he gave celebrities lessons.
2:37 am
nba great dwyane wade was learning from tiger monday. >> i picked up the golf club like many in the black community because of tiger woods. i got that opportunity yesterday to get out there. he taught me a few things, hopefully it translates. but, you know, to be out there with the g.o.a.t., in my eyes, in this sport. and to be able to talk to him about sam, charlie and his father. just it was a great day. >> last time we saw tiger in competition was back in december playing alongside his 11-year-old son charlie in a father/son tournament. there's just so many guys on the tour that grew up idolizing tiger. two-time champion tony finau said tiger is the reason he's golfing today. >> he means so much to the game of golf. i can only speak to my experience. he means a lot to my career. i said it time after time, the '97 masters changed the course of my career. without that event, i wouldn't be here. i wouldn't be playing golf.
2:38 am
so, he's definitely changed the course of my life, my career. i think i'm one of hundreds of guys out here who would probably say the same thing. >> fans reacting on social media. many offering their thoughts and prayers to tiger. olympic skier lindsey vonn who dated tiger for three years before they split. tweets she was praying for him. and president barack obama sending my prayers to tiger and his family. if we've learned anything never count tiger out. >> almost 11 years without a major and then he won that masters. that's for sure, never count tiger out. >> if you watch that documentary on hbo max it just shows why you never count him out, right? andy, thank you so much. returning back to the hearings about the mob on
2:39 am
capitol hill. for every video of officers being beaten or hit with tear gas there is a real person who suffered. a person like u.s. capitol police captain carnnesia mendoza. >> i smelled what i believed to be military grade gas. a familiar smell. i received chemical burns to my face that still have not healed to this day. in the multitude of events, in my nearly 19-year career in the department this is by far the worst of the worst. >> let's bring in cnn's senior political analyst, john avlon. john, good morning. >> good morning. >> john, a lot of takeaways from the hearing. it seems to me, the big one, communication failures put people at rick. this was coordinated.
2:40 am
it was planned. people came armed with spray. but a critical memo before that attack didn't even get to him until the day before the mob. listen to this. >> i actually just in the last 24 hours was informed by the department that they actually had received that report. it was received by what we call -- it's a one of our sworn members that's assigned to the joint terrorism task force which is a task force with the fbi. they received the evening of the 5th. reviewed it and then forward it to an official at the intel against at the u.s. capitol police headquarters. >> so, you hadn't seen it yourself. >> no, ma'am. >> that fbi warning had explicit warning about potential mobs. but they were advertising this on social media. i think a lot of experts i talked to said this is not an intelligence failure. this is a failure to act on the intelligence? >> that's right.
2:41 am
usually incompetence is as good as anything resembling that. this was a failure, an fbi memo that did not circulate widely enough. why it was not forced why it was not highlighted, who knows. who knows why the capitol police hadn't actually heard about it until after it was reported to the press. there were reports of the chatter online in mainstream press leading up to the capitol hill attack. >> right. >> so, this was a real failure there's still a lot of questions to answer. this was an essential first hearing. there are going to be a lot more from dod and dhs and other organizations and we've got critical questions to answer. >> john, a few rope cans put on critical display here. ted cruz got a lot of attention, he's one of the senators that objected to the protogetvoke th. there he is on his phone. the big joke is shhe's booking

vacatizaion to cancun. you have ron johnson. and how can senators take that threat seriously when they refuse to confront it? >> you can't take something seriously if you refuse to name it if you refuse to deal with it. senator ron johnson's display was particularly odious. i'll give you a preview check coming up but he's absolutely continuing to double-down on this denialism without any facts. and that was actually the most disturbing thing. i mean, for ted cruz to get attention for not paying attention i suppose is inevitable. but he even called this a terrorist attack yesterday. and that seems significant to me. >> but ron johnson, what's interesting to me about senator johnson is that local republicans in wisconsin some of them have been public saying it's very clear he's going after trump voter who weren't necessarily republicans before. and he is completely animated by
2:43 am
the new part of the republican party. that's all it's about. you might not necessarily believe it, that's all it's about. >> that may be what's going through his mind. the reality is something has changed inside of ron johnson and he's now actually willfully playing to the stupid side of american politics. he seems to be totally reaching for conspiracy theories when confronted with uncomfortable facts and it's frankly pathetic to watch. >> john, i want to get your thoughts on this. the president is trying desperately to get his cabinet confirmed. most presidents lose a nominee or two, right? >> yeah. >> president biden is not getting help with his own party. the democrats are in control of the senate because of what happened in georgia. it seems like people like senator manchin are not necessarily getting in line with the nominees. are we really in a place where 50 votes means you cannot get a functional government in place? >> this has been coming down the pike obviously, for a long time. what 50 means you don't have a

lot of margin for error. look, a lot of this is about the nomination of neera tanden as the head of omb. seen as a partisan warrior hitting the far left and far right but notnetheless, not getting full support. and losing didn't get you the republicans you normally need. yeah, pay attention to the republicans voting against all of president nominees no matter how qualified that will give you a sense of how things are going to break down the line. >> experience is one thing, mean tweets i think are another. if you look at a slew of nominees from the prior president -- >> oh, yeah. >> -- that were easily confirmed with plenty of mean tweets. >> yeah, anyone who voted for rick grenell shouldn't be clutching their pearls about this one. brand-new, a global shortage
2:45 am
of computer chips get president biden's attention. president biden will sign an order for a 100-day review to identify cracks in supply chains. perhaps more critically biden wants to find out how the parts for american parts depend on overseas providers like china. with assembly lines shut down waiting for for the chips to arrive from overseas. biden will discuss the production cracks with a bipartisan group of lawmakers. here's what happened, the pandemic cut the demand for new cars. automakers cut their orders for chip but demand surge in computer systems and gaming system leading a shortage which auto production ramped up. ford production of iconic f-150, that's america's biggest selling truck because it can't get the chips. we saw equipment early on in the pandemic exposing the crisis to front line workers depending on business from abroad. we'll be right back.
