4:00 am
o raise them. i intend to do that. you know, with god's help. [music playing] have done, i plead he threatened to go medieval his jury told him to go to jail. i'm shepard smith. this is the news on cnbc steve bannon, guilty. >> i stand with trump and the constitution >> what bannon's contempt of congress conviction means for him and for others who refuse to cooperate with the january 6th committee. eight hearings down -- >> doors have opened, new subpoenas have been issued and the dam has begun to break. >> what's next for the committee investigating the insurrection as it seeks to build on new
4:01 am
evidence. donald trump and mike pence face off in arizona, dueling rallies in the battle for the republican party. california governor newsom takes a page from the texas abortion bounty playbook in texas you can get paid for suing those who aid abortions. >> the supreme court said this was okay it was a terrible decision. >> now in california you get paid for suing gun makers and sellers. the details and the political battle president biden's condition as he battles covid. the attack on a republican candidate for new york governor. and inside the global air travel luggage nightmare live from cnbc, the facts, the truth, the news with shepard smith. >> again it took less than three hours for a jury to reach a verdict and convict steve bannon of contempt of congress this is the first conviction related to the january 6th committee's investigation. the jury found steve bannon
4:02 am
guilty on both counts of contempt for refusing to testify and turn over evidence to the committee. bannon had vowed to make his criminal case a misdemeanor from hell as he put it for federal prosecutors. after the lightning-fast conviction, bannon insisted it's not over >> we may have lost the battle here today but we're not going to lose this war, okay >> this didn't seem like the misdemeanor from hell, mr. bannon, what happened? >> this is round one, that's what happened. this is a bulletproof appeal. >> bannon and his lawyers didn't even present a defense during the trial. no witnesses at all. nothing at all to convince the jury that he was innocent of failing to comply with the january 6th committee subpoena his lawyers tried to argue only that the subpoena was improperly signed contempt of congress cases are extremely rare the last time there was a conviction was nearly a half century ago. it was 1974. president nixon's fixers pleaded
4:03 am
guilty in the watergate scandal. let's bring in renato mariotti what message to this send to anyone else who refuses to cooperate with the committee >> i think it sends the message that there can be significant consequences mr. bannon thumbed his nose at the committee, didn't even take seriously the congressional subpoena and he paid the price for that i think anyone who doesn't want to comply with a congressional subpoena better have a sophisticated strategy to do so. >> well, bannon's attorney didn't seem to have much of a strategy at all but he did sound confident about appeal, called it bulletproof do they have any case at all >> they do have a case on appeal because the judge shut down some of their defenses. whenever a judge precludes the defense from putting on certain facts, certain evidence, there's always a chance on appeal. but i would never counsel one of my clients that i have a bulletproof anything in court. and certainly a criminal appeal is always an uphill battle.
4:04 am
>> do you think he sees jail time or no, renato >> i think so. in fact there's a minimum of 30 days in prison so unless the judge allows him to appeal before serving any of his sentence, he's going to serve at least the 30 days i think he's going to get more than that. frankly, that's bannon's own fault. he had a very ham-handed approach, thumbed his nose at the committee, didn't try to make gestures towards compliance like meadows did, so i think he was asking for it. >> thanks so much. the big question now is has the january 6th committee laid out enough evidence of potential crimes for the doj to prosecute former president trump a committee member who led last night's bombshell public hearing seems to think so. >> the department of justice doesn't need to wait on us to do something. i sure as hell hope that merrick garland has an open criminal investigation on donald trump. with what we've laid out and all
4:05 am
of the public information that's available. no one needs to wait for some formality from our committee to have that ball in motion. >> last night we heard how president trump sat in the dining room in the white house for hours, watching the insurrection unfold on tv, watching the violent mob of his own supporters attack the u.s. capitol. but witnesses testified he refused to call them off or do anything to stop them, even as everybody else in the white house seemed to be begging him to intervene we heard how mr. trump did not make one single call to bring in the national guard or any law enforcement. >> did the commander in chief -- you've got an assault on the capitol of the united states of america. and there's nothing? no call? nothing? zero >> the committee detailed how much danger vice president pence and his security team were in, as the mob closed in, calling for him to be hanged we heard chilling radio transmissions and testimony about mr. pence's secret service
4:06 am
agents calling their families to say good-bye >> they're entered the building, hold >> if we're moving, we need to move now. >> copy. >> if we lose any more time, we may have -- we may lose the ability to leave so, if we're going to leave, we need to do it now. stand by i am going down to evaluate. >> go ahead. >> we have a clear route if we move quickly there is smoke, unknown what kind of smoke it is. copy >> clear, we're coming out now, all right? make a way. >> the members of the vp detail at this time were starting to fear for their own lives a lot of very personal calls over the radio, so it was disturbing i don't like talking about it. but there were calls to say good-bye to family members >> that from the proceedings last night we also saw outtakes from president trump's prerecorded speech from the day after the
4:07 am
riot those outtakes were telling, said many. the former president struggled to criticize the rioters and even refused to say the election was over. >> to those who broke the law, you will pay you do not represent our movement you do not represent our country. and if you broke the law -- i can't say that i'm not -- i already said you will pay this election is now over. congress has certified the results. i don't want to say the election is over. i just want to say congress has certified the results without saying the election is over, okay >> last night was just the season finale. we learned another season is coming the committee vowed even more hearings in september, as more witnesses come forward and new evidence continues to emerge cnbc's senior congressional correspondent ylan mui is live with us now. >> reporter: well, shep, stay tuned. the committee is still trying to figure out what happened inside
4:08 am
president trump's motorcade after his rally on january 6th the three security officials who would have witnessed trump's, quote, irate behavior, that's anthony ornato, robert engel and the driver all retained private lawyers according to one of the committee members. zoe lofgren said while they said they would testify under oath, they have not done so yet, but the committee did say that the dam is breaking as new witnesses come forward and new information raises new questions >> and then there's witnesses who have come in before. knowing what we know now, i think we probably need to go back and call some of those people again because we have a better understanding of the circumstances so we can go back and ask some more pointed questions. >> reporter: on his social media platform, trump is keeping up a steady drumbeat of false claims that the election was stolen and he attacked the witnesses, committee and so-called disloyal republicans. yet new polls data suggests that
4:09 am
the hearings could be swaying public opinion a reuters survey shows 40% of republicans now believe that trump is at least partly to blame for january 6th, up from 33% six weeks ago. still some conservative voters in key swing states are not quipsed. >> i don't think he did anything i think the people uprised and couldn't take it no more i don't think trump did wrong. >> reporter: shep, if trump announces another run at the white house this fall, that could throw a curveball into the committee's plans for more hearings in september. >> ylan mui, thanks very much. let's go back to renato now. out of all the testimony and evidence presented yesterday, what would the doj most likely latch onto >> they would latch onto the pieces of testimony we heard that reveal donald trump's motives to his intent and so on.
4:10 am
for example, kayleigh mcenany coming in and saying he did not want the word "peaceful" in that tweet. the testimony of a metropolitan police officer that donald trump wanted to go back onto the scene. the testimony we heard a moment ago from a capitol police officer or, excuse me, a white house security officer that was disguised saying that, you know, donald trump wanted to go back to the capitol and that would have turned a rally into something else i also would say what was missing is some of, for example, we heard some objected to testimony regarding executive privilege and we also didn't hear from mark meadows testimony that i think the doj could obtain via a grand jury subpoena. >> a lot of data that this committee likely has no access to, but when the doj subpoenas data, it's a whole different
4:11 am
situation. i mean the granular evidence of what was happening and communications between one side and the other, not just the day but for weeks before >> yeah, absolutely. you know, you saw here that the committee essentially often had to take what it was going to get. for example, from mr. cipollone, they took what he gave them which was his own thoughts, his own opinions and then what he heard other people say besides trump. it's a totally different story if you have a grand jury sp subpoena i think in that circumstance executive privilege will not hold up. he'll have to testify as to what trump told him that day and it's going to be very evealing. so it's up to the justice department to conduct that investigation. >> the secret service agents who have lawyered up with private attorneys, of course they have a right to do that, everybody does, but congresswoman lofgren called that unusual. what does that signal to you, if anything >> it is unusual what it suggests to me is that they think they may have their
4:12 am
own individual liability so, for example, it may be that they either destroyed evidence or they're concerned that they may have testified inaccurately before congress. either of those could create potential liability for them or they don't want to cooperate. >> thanks for your time tonight. i didn't mean to interrupt it's tough with szoom good to see you, thank you president biden's covid symptoms are improving and he's responding well to treatment that is the positive update from the white house doctor in a letter he wrote the president had a slight temperature last night but it went down after taking tylenol the doctor added he's still tired and continues to have a runny nose and loose cough dr. ashish jha says president biden has used an inhaler a few times since he tested positive yesterday morning but the doc insists the president us still breathing just fine. >> it's great to see the president doing better he's doing better because he is
4:13 am
vaccinated, he is boosted, he's getting treatments >> president biden says he's working as he isolates in the white house residence. today he met virtually with his economic team about gas prices >> i apologize for my voice. i'm feeling much better than i sound. >> mr. biden smiled and flashed a thumbs up when reporters asked how are you feeling? an 18-year-old shot in the face and killed by an off-duty new york corrections officer why police say they think it could all be tied to a tiktok trend. the wwe's vince mcmahon accused of sexual misconduct and paying to cover it up. today the decision he made about his future and the world he helped to build. and a republican candidate for new york governor attacked in the middle of a campaign event. why the suspect has already been released >> the facts, the ut
4:14 am
4:15 am
afn off-duty corrections officer in new york city killed an 18-year-old, shot him in the face now police are investigating whether a popular tiktok trend might have played a part that's from law enforcement sources who spoke with our station nbc 4 new york those sources say authorities found a toy water gun, kind of like these, inside the teenager's car they're popular right now, thanks to what they call the orvy's challenge on tiktok they shoot bead pellets filled with water videos show people shooting their friends, sometimes from moving cars. now, so far police say there's no evidence that the teen actually fired the toy gun at the officer. in new york city, here's cnbc's valerie castro. >> reporter: it's packaged and sold as a children's toy, but the orbee's gun is the focus of
4:16 am
a tiktok challenge leading to deadly consequences. it shoots pellets filled with water or gel, a step down from a full-on bb gun the challenge, to shoot unsuspecting people. like this woman with a baby stroller in florida. new york police say they are looking into if that's what played out thursday night in the bronx. an 18-year-old now memorialized with candles outside his home was shot in the face sources telling nbc 4 new york an orbee's gun was discovered in the car. an off-duty police officer was arrested, accused of killing the teen with a real firearm prosecutors charging him today with murder and first and second-degree manslaughter the nypd tweeting a warning that bead blaster type guns are air rifles and considered illegal. law enforcement in florida have made several arrests in similar cases like this one. an amazon delivery driver shot by someone passing by. the same challenge was blamed for the death of a 17-year-old
4:17 am
in ohio, beaten to death after police say a fight broke out after one group of teens fired the gel pellets at another group playing basketball the three accused of murder have pleaded not guilty and tonight we're outside the victim's home where his friends dispute that this had anything to do with a tiktok challenge. they say this was simply a summer water gun fight between friends. the correction officer's union issued a statement saying deon middleton fired his weapon where he felt his life was in immediate danger and after feeling something hit his back middleton left the scene and went on to work. the department of corrections says he is currently assigned to the firing range at the correction academy shep. >> valerie castro live in new york city. an arrest now in the deadly ambush of two cops in new york police in rochester say a gunman killed one officer and hurt another. the police chief there said the officer who died was a 29-year
4:18 am
veteran. >> last night officer mezurkowitz and his partner were attacked in a cowacowardlyambush >> just jed yesterday the mayor declared a state of emergency. the announcement in response to a surge in shootings the two officers were working on a murder investigation the gunman hid in some bushes and fired about 17 rounds at officers sitting in an unmarked car. cops say ambulancies took the officers to nearby hospitals where one officer died his partner is said to be recovering at home they say a bullet also grazed a 15-year-old girl inside a nearby home she's okay but after the shooting, officers then combed the area they found the suspect hiding in a crawl space inside a vacant home he's facing murder, attempted murder and other charges

4:22 am
get ready for another scorcher this weekend, extreme heat already blanketing most of the country. and now meteorologists say it's going to stick around. according to the national weather service, new york city, for example, is on track for its longest heat wave in nearly a decade adam del roso is with us, senior meteorologist at accuweather, sticking around for how much longer, adam >> well, for some of us right into next week so i feel like i'm starting to sound like a broken record talking about all of the records broken amid this ongoing heat wave so far this month across the country, more than 300 records have been broken here. the worst of the heat today across the central plains into the midwest with high temperatures back up into the triple digits for cities lik wichita and colby, kansas. heat advisories in effect for us for the weekend into early next week, even across the 95
4:23 am
corridor as you get around philadelphia, new york, boston, heat advisories for us as well we got into the mid-90s and it's only going to get hotter saturday and sunday. the other element is the humidity, the moisture in the air. we've got dew points up into the 60s and 70s. when numbers are that high and your body tries to sweat, normally it cools by evaporating that moisture but with that much moisture in the air, it has no place to go. this ridge staying in place across the desert southwest but the jetstream takes a northward bump into canada across the northeast so that heat is allowed to spread eastward the hottest day coming on sunday even tomorrow places like louisville getting up to 100 new york city mid-90s for us with accuweather real-feel temperatures even hotter than that i mentioned already sunday going to be even worse along the 95 corridor, across the southern and central plains into the west coast, accuweather real-feel temperatures 100 or
4:24 am
greater. more than 160 million impacted here with this heat. look at these temperatures for sunday afternoon newark, new jersey, 105. philly expecting to get up to 100. that would be the first time in ten years that we've been that hot. both of those would shatter the daily records set back more than a decade ago now, we want some relief thankfully that is coming for us in new york city as we head toward early and middle parts of next week. notice as we head to monday and tuesday, temperatures are back into the mid-80s but you get into houston and across the rest of the southern plains where we're on track for the hottest summer on record, we stay up close to 100, which is about 10 degrees above normal. shep, i've got a feeling the pools are going to be crowded. >> yeah, i bet they well adam del rosso live with us. thus. california governor gavin newsom turning the tables on texas governor greg abbott the first of its kind gun bill modeled after one of the strictest abortion laws in the
4:25 am

now. one guy, though, had a bit of a different purpose. he's a czech prince. his family had entire castles and thousands of cultural artifacts stolen not once, but twice. well, now this young prince is turning technology so that safeguarding his family heirlooms and legacy can be helped cnbc's technology reporter, mackenzie started her week in paris and now she's in prague where she's been following the prince and his entourage hi, mackenzie. >> reporter: hey, shep so a 700-year-old noble family in the czech republic had their castles and 20,000 cultural artifacts first stolen by the nazis, then by the communists and now this 27-year-old prince is turning to the blockchain to protect and preserve these historical objects >> when we first came back to the czech republic and restitution began, it was the wild west. we really didn't have any
4:28 am
business plan whatsoever. >> reporter: restitution, or the process of restoring stolen items to their rightful owner, is not the fairy tale it's turned out to be it took 25 years and most of those castles and ancient artifacts were in terrible shape. but his family was determined to restore these recovered landmarks and open them up to the public that's when he decided to experiment with nfts as a way to raise funds. >> we try to bring people on the journey of philanthropy. we've taken a painting that needs restoration. it can be a hole in the canvas, it's damaged in some way and we create an image of the nft and sell it at the price of the restoration of the piece. >> reporter: they have sold nfts of music that hasn't been played in 250 years others are infrared images so you can see through the invisible layers of the canvas that have been painted over. but william and his family are
4:29 am
turning to the blockchain to protect his cultural legacy so it can be preserved in perpetuity. >> what i'm doing right now i don't think is any different from any of my predecessors. each prince did something completely different based off of the times they lived in. >> reporter: so keep in mind, william and his family do not live in these castles, and they never intended to. from the beginning they wanted to give as many people as possible access to these historical monuments, so this really is a labor of love, shep. >> it sure seems it. mackenzie sigalos live in early saturday morning in prague. well, an economic warning light is flashing red, and that's what's topping cnbc's on the money. private sector output is shrinking. that signal from the purchasing manager's index. it's a leading survey that tracks trends across the manufacturing and service industries anything above 50 signals a healthy, growing economy but july's reading is 47.5
4:30 am
that's the lowest level since the throes of the early pandemic according to the survey, the downturn indicates a further loss of momentum across the economy. the wwe chairman and ceo vince mcmahon stepping out of the ring mcmahon announced his retirement late today the 76-year-old stepped aside last month amid an ongoing sexual misconduct investigation. he took over the wwe in the 1980s and helped propel professional wrestling to new heights. wwe went public in 1999. traders, eh, they're not doing much with the news after hours. and the hard seltzer craze starting to fizzle hard seltzer emerged as a sort of healthier alternative to beer a few years ago, maybe lighter anyway, it got hot quick the frenzy for low calorie fruity booze led bud, corona, coca-cola and many others to jump in the fight for shelf space. now hard seltzer retail sales

4:32 am
in arizona pit former president trump against his former vice president. >> you are looking live. prescott, arizona, mr. trump set to speak there at any moment he's there backing kari lake, a republican candidate for governor in the state. this rally just hours after mr. pence spoke 95 miles away in peoria he was stumping for lake's rival, karen taylor robson mr. pence slammed kari lake for her past support of democrats. >> i'm always happy to welcome converts to the republican cause, but arizona republicans don't need a governor that supported barack obama and hillary clinton. >> the race is really a face-off between the republican establishment and a trump candidate who's all in on the big lie. we're seeing similar races playing out all across the country, and we could eventually see the former vice president
4:33 am
take on mr. trump for the republican presidential nomination for 2024. of course the rallies come after yesterday's january 6th hearing on capitol hill. former white house aide sarah matthews told the committee that president trump's tweet condemning mike pence was akin to pouring gasoline on the fire. we're waiting to see if the former president responds tonight. vaughn hillyard is live in prescott where we expect to hear from the former president pretty soon vaughn, you were at the pence rally earlier. how is this race being defined >> reporter: you know, shep, i think we need to make it clear that today, july 22nd, 2022, is the clearest choice in which the republican party's voters have been presented two paths one is the trump coalition he is campaigning here today with the likes of kari lake, candidate for governor, a fellow election denier, someone who has propagated conspiracy theories that have been echoed by donald trump, but also u.s. senate candidate blake masters.
4:34 am
but we were down earlier today in the phoenix area with mike pence, who is campaigning with an opposing candidate for governor, karen taylor robson, a real estate consult ankt they were joined by the likes of current arizona governor doug ducey who also caught the ire of donald trump when he certified joe biden's win in the state in 2020 for the last year we have been asking the question, you know, would the likes of mike pence come out and come on the campaign trail for somebody like karen taylor robson. today he answered that question and that is where ultimately it's republican voters we are looking at a primary election on august 2nd who in this mano a mano battle will decide which direction it will go you have seen mehmet oz, herschel walker and other candidates come out on top but this is the first time you've really seen mike pence after these january 6 select committee hearings come out and really
4:35 am
play a key role on the campaign trail and stick his neck out on what of a major political candidate. ultimately, it's going to be the voters of arizona who decide which path they want shep. >> that's how it works in the end. vaughn hillyard live prescott, arizona, as the crowd gets riled up. let's turn to the republican strategist mike murphy now mike, is this a defining race for the future of this party or at least the beginning of it >> yeah, i think so. i think it's very important. now, it's a close race the regulars, as the report said, are all behind karen taylor robson who worked in the reagan white house and has good republican credentials and she can win the general election kari lake is essentially a vote for a democratic governor. even if lake wins the primary, the polls show her two or three or four points ahead, the party is now split down the middle that sure wasn't the case a year ago. i think there's a good chance
4:36 am
and i think pence is pretty clever, pretty shrewd, that robson -- excuse me, taylor robson will upset and put that race into play for the republicans in the general. >> we saw the polling from republicans a little bit earlier in this newscast is it your sense that the january 6th hearings are beginning to affect republican voters and how they view the former president >> yeah. you know, as we say back home in detroit after a wreck, i think president trump politically had his frame bent you know, his politics are never going to drive the same. and what you see is a lot of republicans saying, you know, i like the guy, i voted for him, he did a good job, but now all he wants to talk about is that it's time to move on we don't want to trash him but move on to something new and the ultimate test, you see folks like governor desantis in florida, mike pence and others starting to go out on the trail and set up potential presidential campaigns against him, which would have been unthey thinkable 18 months ago
4:37 am
so i think the hearings and general trump fatigue are driving that. >> mike furmurphy, republican strategist, thank you very much. an attack on a republican congressman, lee zeldin, has been released without posting any bail the congressman is running for governor in new york he was speaking to veterans of foreign wars -- a veterans of foreign wars post near rochester when the suspect attacked him. he had a sharp object on his knuckles, kept saying "you're done," grabbed his arm and they tumbled to the ground. people subdued the suspect and zip tied him the congressman suffered only a scratch. a witness who helped tackle the suspect said he was incoherent, he was an iraq war combat vet. it was a plastic self-defense key chain shaped like a cat's
4:38 am
face congressman zeldin criticized new york's cashless bail system is dangerous and vowed if he's elected he'll reform it. california governor gavin newsom following through on his promise to crack down on illegal guns today he signed into a measure, a controversial first of its kind, gun control bill it's built on the same premise that lawmakers in texas used to ban abortions. >> if they're going to use this framework to put women's lives at risk, we're going to use it to save people's lives here in the state of california. that's the spirit, the principle behind this law. >> here's how it works it allows people to sue anybody who sells or manufactures illegal guns in the state of california, such as assault weapons. if they win in court, the state will then award them a minimum of $10,000 for each violation, each weapon. the policy also applies to ghost guns and parts that can be used
4:39 am
to build guns at home. on what drove this new law and the backlash it's facing, here's cnbc's scott cohn. >> reporter: speaking at the site of a mass shooting with a ghost gun that left six people dead in 2013, gavin newsom said he was applying some texas logic to the problem of gun violence. >> get these guns off the street by allowing 40 million of you to be enforcers by allowing 40 million californians to enforce the law of the state of california. >> reporter: californians can now sue gun law violators for $10,000 plus court costs for every instance, just like texans can sue over abortions in the controversial ban upheld so far by the supreme court >> the supreme court opened the door the supreme court said this was okay. >> reporter: newsom even took out print ads in texas, crossing out greg abbott's words on the abortion law replaced by
4:40 am
newsom's on guns gun rights advocates says it's all politics. >> it feels like the governor -- >> reporter: the aclu says just like the texas abortion law, the gun law is an assault on the constitution, unsound and invalid and undermines due process of law indeed if the supreme court strikes down the texas abortion law, the california gun law would automatically go away too. but newsom says these are desperate times. >> we're sick and tired of being on the defense. >> reporter: these are also political times. newsom is favored to win a second term this fall, now raising his national profile with ads like this one in florida. >> join us in california, where we still believe in freedom. >> reporter: so does governor newsom have his eye on higher office like the white house? he claims his interest is
4:41 am
subzero. instead he says he's just trying to get democrats to step up their game, telling nbc news he thinks his party has been playing, in his words, a little soft shep. >> scott cohn live tonight thanks very much. the uvalde school district officials were set to meet tomorrow to discuss the firing of the school's police chief well, today they cancelled that meeting. a district spokesperson released a statement saying in conformity with due process requirements and at the request of his attorney, the meeting to consider the termination of chief arredondo will be held at a later date which has yet to be determined school district officials said last month they put chief arredondo on administrative leave. that after the widespread reports that law enforcement botched the response to the massacre at robb elementary school investigators say arredondo and hundreds of other officers waited more than an hour to confront the gunman who killed 19 kids and two teachers under the district's active shooter response plan chief arredondo was in charge that day but he previously told the texas
4:42 am
tribune newspaper he didn't know he was the incident kmcommander. vladimir putin's invasion of ukraine has led to a food crisis but under a new deal the russians have allowed ukraine to export desperately needed grain. the united nations and turkey brokered the agreement ukraine is one of the world's largest grain producers but for months russian warships have blocked the black sea and cut off the flow of ukrainian grain. just weeks ago the united nations warned of a looming hunger catastrophe due to the russian invasion the world food program's director reported 50 million people in 45 countries were just one step away from famine. when no region seems free from the threat of climate change, where do you go? researchers offer up one idea right here in the united states. and defining image of air travel in the summer of '22. all that luggage lost and
