7:02 pm
today, nato formally invited sweden and finland to join its military alliance. the move is a significant blow to putin himself, and boosts nato's eastern flank finland shares an 800-mile border with russia the fins also have a solid military that is trained extensively with american and nato troops. today's decision also means that sweden is ending more than 200 years of military neutrality today, the secretary-general of nato spoke to reporters in madrid they asked him whether ukraine could join nato next he said the alliance would offer other types of support >> allies will continue to provide major military and financial help also it's very clear that allies are prepared for long haul wars are unpredictable but we have to be prepared for the long haul. >> volodymyr zelenskyy released this video today he says it shows the moment a

7:04 pm
the united states is adding an undisclosed number of troops to the 100,000 already stationed in europe in poland, the first permanent forces on the eastern flank, they'll serve as sort of a hub for deployments in the region. new rotating brigades in romania and the baltics and various air defense systems and personnel in southern and western europe. today, president biden said the threat are coming from all directions >> in a moment where putin has shattered peace in europe and attacked the very tenants of rule based order, the united states and allies are going to step up. >> today, mr. biden met with turkey's president for the cameras they discussed the global supply of oil and grain the president erdogan has said he would again request new f-16 fighter jets from mr. biden in this meeting which came after dropping turkey's opposition to sweden and finland's membership bids a senior u.s. official denied
7:05 pm
the two actions were linked. but the white house seemingly endorsed this deal the assistant secretary of defense for international security affairs telling reporters this today quote, the united states supports turkey's modernization of its fighter fleet because that is a contribution to nato security and therefore american security and while the alliance very clearly today declared russia as the most immediate threat, its ten-year framework also called out the people's republic of china, warning in a lengthy rebuke of its opaque ambitions and growing nuclear arsenal. >> kayla tausche live in madrid. for analysis, admiral james stavridis, author of the book, to risk it all. nato expanding is the opposite of what putin was trying to accomplish strategically, though, what does it mean for the fighting in ukraine? >> this is a very good day for nato, and a very good day for the west, and a very good day
7:06 pm
for sweden and finland to come and join the alliance. let's put this in business terms, shep. this is cnbc this is an acquisition it is a blue chip acquisition. it has very high cash flows. it is two companies, if you will, that are ready to go they are turnkey operations on security and they share a long border which does nothing but complicate vladimir putin's security planning. look, i commanded these troops in afghanistan they were part of our nato forces that went to afghanistan. they were part of the war over libya, high-tech super professional, deeply capable, and long history of antipathy to russia we want them on the team bottom line, great day for nato. >> are you concerned at all, admiral, this could lead to increased aggression from the russians >> i'm not because putin is in the process of breaking his fall, if you will, on ukraine.
7:07 pm
ukrainians have fought him to a standstill, and he's now forced to consolaolidate all of his trp in this relatively small strip of territory on the southeast corner of ukraine. he has no capacity to go after sweden or finland or estounio or latvia or lithuania. again, putin has been a clever tactician at times, he's a dumb strategist because he's backed his nation into a strategic corner that's going to be very hard to get out of >> thanks very much. >> we just got brand-new information from the january 6th committee. a very important subpoena has now been issued to someone inside the former president's inner circle we'll have that information coming up for you in just a few moments. first, a verdict today in the case of the deadliest peace time attack in french history. a court found the chief suspect and 19 others guilty in the

7:31 pm
investigating the january 6th insurrection has just subpoenaed the former trump white house counsel pat cipollone. in a statement that just came out moments ago, the committee leaders wrote, the select committee's investigation has revealed evidence that m mr. cipollone repeatedly raised legal and other concerns about president trump's activities on january 6th and in the days that preceded it. the committee says it needs his testimony on the record. it comes after a former top aide to the former white house chief of staff, mark meadows, testified publicly just yesterday. and a string of denials today. longtime trump ally rudy giuliani and former white house chief of staff mark meadows both deny their ever asked for pardons after the insurrection yesterday, his aide, cassidy hutchinson, testified under oath that they did. the former chief of staff has refused to answer questions under oath in front of the committee. they voted to hold him in contempt, but the justice
7:32 pm
department declined to charge him. after the hearing, former white house lawyer eric hirschmann also cast some doubt on the testimony about a hand written note she said she jotted this one down as meadows and hirshman dictated to her language she said they wanted the president to include in a statement as riotered breached the capitol. hirshman says he actually wrote that note. and as we reported here last night, secret service agents are disputing hutchinson's claim that former president trump reached for the steering wheel and lunged at an agent inside the presidential suv she testified another white house aide told her it happened after the president learned he would not be going to the capitol with the rioters hutchinson said the agent he allegedly lunged at was in the room when she heard the story. and that he did not deny it then they do agree he was angry and wanted to go to the capitol. cnbc's senior congressional correspondent ylan mui tracking the fallout tonight.
7:33 pm
a critical subpoena just in from that committee >> yeah, shep. the committee has been calling for white house counsel pat cipollone to testify for weeks if not months now. and tonight, it finally sent that official request. in a statement, the committee said that it appreciates m mr. cipollone's earlier informal engagement with that investigation, but it now needs to hear from him on the record now, the subpoena comes after that dramatic testimony yesterday from white house aide cassidy hutchinson, who claimed that cipollone told her he was worried about getting charged with, quote, every crime imaginable if trump went to the capitol on january 6th now, earlier today, committee vice chair liz cheney dismissed cipollone's fear that his cooperation could violate executive privilege. she tweeted, his previously stated concerns about the institutional interest of his prior office are outweighed by the need for his testimony now, his statement could also be key to bolstering hutchinson's credibility as a witness after several people have been
7:34 pm
disputing her testimony. the secret service told me that the committee did not reach out in the days leading up to yesterday's hearing about hutchinson's account of what happened in that presidential suv. and an agency spokesman said it plans to formally respond to those allegations and will make any member of the agency available to the committee still hutchinson's lawyers are defending her actions. in a statement, they said she stands by all of the testimony she provided yesterday under oath to the select committee and members of the committee themselves said they too welcome anyone with information to come forward. >> nobody is challenging the central material facts of her testimony that donald trump and mark meadows were perfectly aware that there were armed people in the crowd. i fully expected that ms. hutchinson would come under attack, but from my estimation, she spoke with entire credibility and authenticity yesterday.
7:35 pm
>> shep, the committee says it's gotten a wealth of new information since these hearings began. but cipollone could be a critical witness if he cooperates back to you. >> ylan mui, thanks very much. >> china is buying up some american farmland. the question is, is china doing that to spy on the u.s. military some lawmakers and intel officials say it's a real concern. the question centers around a controversial land sale between north dakotaens and the company with ties to beijing eamon javers spoke with key players behind that deal >> this is grand forks air force base in north dakota, home of some of the nation's most sensitive technology, including the rq-4 global hawk surveillance drone and this property sits just about 20 minutes down the road more than 300 acres of prime farmland earlier this year, three north dakotaens who owned parcels there sold this land for
7:36 pm
millions of dollars to a subsidiary of a chinese company that says it wants to build a corn milling plant now the transaction has come under scrutiny here in washington, d.c. where some in the intelligence community warn that the deal should be blocked because it could offer chinese spies unprecedented access to the american base. it's an only in america kind of fight. pitting the property and economic rights of a community against national security warnings from high ranking officials in the nation's capital. the chinese company at the heart of the controversy is the fufung group. its american subsidiary says the company is not a threat. >> we're under u.s. laws i'm an american citizen. i grew up my whole life here, and i'm not going to be doing any type of espionage activities or be associated with a company that does. >> the city's mayor says he just wants to do business >> it's a $700 million plant that would really be the largest single investment in the city's history. the fbi, you know, didn't say
7:37 pm
there was any immediate concerns they said if you see something, say something. >> the air force hasn't taken any official position on the chinese investment but an air force major composed an alarming memo in april obtained by cnbc, laying out what he believes to be the intelligence threat. he wrote, some of the most sensitive elements of grand forks exist with the digital uplinks and downlinks inherent with unmanned air systems and their interaction with space based assets the air force says major jeremy fox was only speaking for himself but he's not the only one with security concerns in a report released may 26th, the u.s./china economic and security review commission wrote, the location of the land close to the base is particularly convenient for monitoring air traffic flows in and out of the base among other security-related concerns. that's why senator kevin cramer says he opposes the project in hiown state despite the economic
7:38 pm
benefits it might bring. >> i think we grossly underappreciate how effective they are at collecting information, collecting data, using it in nuefarious ways, so would just as soon not have the chinese communist party doing business in my backyard. >> both the chairman and ranking member of the senate intelligence committee told cnbc they also have concerns about the chinese development. now, the city won't build out infrastructure until next spring, and the mayor tells me he's moving ahead with the project in good faith, but he also says he's still waiting to hear if the federal government has any official objection, shep >> what do the people who sold the land say about all this? >> i talked to one of the three people who sold the land to the subsidiary of the chinese company. he said he doesn't see any intelligence threat at all he thinks these concerns are overblown. he sold his land for $2.6 million. he said in this global economy right now, we all have iphones in our pocket that were probably manufactured in china and he
7:39 pm
asked the question, where do you draw the line? that's the question here >> probably know everything already anyway >> maybe >> eamon javerss, thank you. >> so tiktok is back under scrutiny, sort of. one of the five fcc commissioners, one, is taking issue with the company he's a trump appointee who wants the chinese owned social media app removed from apple and google over privacy concerns he's giving both companies until next week to either boot tiktok from their app stores or explain why tiktok should stay so why is this fcc commissioner picking a fight with tiktok now? here's nbc's jake ward >> tonight, tiktok is in deep trouble with the u.s. government fcc commissioner brendan carr demanding in a letter to apple and google that they stop offering one of the most popular social media apps because, quote, it harvest swaths of sensitive information that new reports show are being accessed in beijing this isn't the first crisis for the wildly popular chinese
7:40 pm
founded company. carr's letter cites episodes in which researchers found it was collecting sensitive data including passwords. president trump who appointed carr sought to ban the app in 2020 >> we're looking at tiblth we may be banning tiktok we may be doing some other things >> tiktok is kind of public enemy number one to a lot of privacy watchdogs especially those in the u.s. government who worry about chinese collection of u.s. data >> the u.s. military prohibits it on government devices and india has banned it outright carr also cites recent reporting from buzzfeed news in spite of assurances tiktok has moved their data out of china, leaked audio from the company suggests a tiktok engineer in beijing still have access. tiktok calls reports misleading and told nbc news engineers in locations outside of the u.s. including china can be granted access to u.s. user data on an as-needed basis under strict controls
7:41 pm
neither apple nor google paernlt company alphabet had comment tonight. the letter says tiktok isn't just an app for sharing funny videos or memes. it's, quote, a sophisticated surveillance tool that collects far more data than users realize. >> one of the reasons we're seeing brendan carr, the fcc commissioner, push for the app stores to limit it is that is one choke point for a lot of apps that doesn't necessarily mean it will stop working on your phone, but it would almost certainly you wouldn't be able to download it >> this is not unique to tiktok. it's the business model of all major platforms. for example, shared sandberg pioneered collecting consumer data as a way of targeting a advert advertisement. facebook made over 90% of its revenue that way, over $100 billion in 2021. tiktok now faces deletion for allegedly sharing that information abroad i'm jake ward. >> the fbi is opening up old cases. the allegations against the
7:42 pm
catholic church in one city now under investigation. a police van's sudden stop paralyzes a man. that's what lawyers say. but it's what happened next that has the community demanding action when you become an expedia member, you can instantly start saving on your travels. so you can go and see all those lemons, for less.
