3:00 pm
hello. thank you for joining us. top of the hour. i'm don lemon. you are in the "cnn newsroom" live this evening from boston. here is the latest the boston bombing investigation. responding to news a russian wiretap intercept ad communication of the bombing suspect's mother discussing jihad with someone who may have been one of her sons. why did russia wait until a few day ace go to turn over that information? would the fbi have done more if it had that information sooner? our experts fwhaeg on that. the only man that knows a motive behind thees keeping his mouth shut today. the suspect is staying quiet, dzhokhar sar nef. boston's baseball caps piling up at the memorial for the victims behind meear from the emotional visitors for the next two hours here on cnn. meantime, let's get to the latest. attorney general eric holder taking some heat for defending the timing on reading the boston
3:01 pm
bombing suspects his miranda rights. white house core departments and at the white house correspondents dinner last night holder spoke exclusively to cnn about his decision. athena jones has more from washington. >> reporter: attorney general eric holder under fire from republicans for agreeing to a judge's decision to read the boston bombing suspect his miranda rights. dzhokhar has since clammed up. valuable sfogs out of reach. speaking to cnn holder answered that for the first time at white house correspondents dinner. >> the decision to mirandize him is one that the magistrate and totally consistent with the laws that we have. we had a two-day period we were able to question him under the public safety exception. i think everyone was done appropriately and we got leads. >> reporter: republican party king shooting back saying investigators may never find out whether others were involved and
3:02 pm
how the brothers became radicalized. >> the fact is that the fbi was only 16 hours into an i interrogation and got buto much more was -- still not there. eric holder now is saying he approved the interrogation being stopped is disgraceful because that interrogation could have ended up saving many american lives. we don't know what full consequences will be. >> reporter: king and other republicans say that hold corps have pushed to extend what is called the public safety exception torviewieading him his rights. not so says democrat adam schiff. >> f to interview as long as they can to get into what happened overseas and full nature of the plot. but the public safety exception only goes to protecting the information they need to do that that's the full length and dimension of that exception. >> reporter: that debate is sure to continue in washington. house intelligence committee mike rogers has demanded more answer prosecutors the justice department on how this decision to read the suspects his rights
3:03 pm
was made. >> athena jones at the white house. thank you very much. remember this just here in the states. it extends all the way to russia where the tsarnaev brothers poeshgs traced their roots. susan candiotti. i want to talk about the russian angle to the bombing investigations. in the past few hours we learned that the russian government had their suspicions about the tsarnaev family. what's that about?ihi don. as we have been telling you, there are many more questions tonight about the russian wiretapping of the suspects' mother in this case. and you will recall that we learned that the russians according to sources with knowledge of the investigation, that a phone call was made from one of the suspect -- phone call was made from one of the to his mother
3:04 pm
in russia in early 2011. now, our sources are telling us that the content of the conversation or this wiretap was vaguely talking about jihad. what we don't know is what that means. were they talking about a ruggle? was there specific talk about an attack? and how long had the russians been eavesdropping on the mother of the bombing suspects in this was the information only shared with the recently within the last few days? that's why there is a lot why it happened in this fashion, don. and finally, we want to know if that information had been shared much earlier back in 2001 might that have been able to make a difference in this -- possible future attack here in the united states. don? >> we got the call late last week that the suspect had been moved to the medical center. you are outside of that medical center where he is being held. how much do we know about this facility? about the inside, more like a
3:05 pm
hospital prison combination? >> reporter: it is a combination of both. and the area where the suspect is in this case dzhokhar he is housed with 30 other inmates. mitt from the prison spokesperson here that in fact she talking. he is talking to his doctors, the people who are taking care of him, and, of course, he is under 24-hour surveillance. the suppose people here what they aren't telling us, whether he had any visitors. for exam frm his own attorney or talking with the fbi. or exactly what his medical condition at this hour. only that he is talking with the people taking care of him. >> all right. an candiotti. we appreciate that. let's talk about the conversation now as people have been talking about the intelligence from the tsarnaev brother about reading him his miranda rights and about intercept with the russian government. let me bring in now national
3:06 pm
security analyst. talking abou stove piping everybody has been talking about. some people are saying the information is not being shared. others are saying it is transparent. it is being shared. who are we to believe here? >> i think that where we are now is in terms of what we now know about the russians and what they did not give up is that this may be less a problem of the historical stove piping 9/11 commission said was the problem amongst all of the u.s. and intelligence and law enforcement agency there was good position and that good information wasn't being shared. we weren't able to stop a terrorist attack. now appears that this is not a stove piping problem. good information was not shared to the fbi by the russians. fbi had month reason too go from thinking that he was just sort of another person that was -- told bay foreign country it might abbad guy into one of the more exclusive and, therefore, intrusive watch lists. if you look at the -- where the u.s. -- how other u.s. agencies dealt with his name whether it
3:07 pm
is the cia, dhs, travel all of those are fact that the fbi didn't get an fbi should whatever else, i'm sure they will go back to that. >> that's a big question. where does the bus stop? which one agency that should be responsible? before you answer that, i want to youwmakers talking about it. it has become a political issue. listen and we will talk. >> i don't think we have seen the stove piping issues that pre-dated 9/11. we had fixed a lot of the problems. what remains here in a way, more striking conclusion that is -- that in a free and open society, even when you do everything right, you still may not be able to prevent group of people willing to kill themselves using low-tech relativelyv: low-tech means. some of these things are going -- doing everything we can but, you know we have to be right 100% of the time. and they only have to be right 1%. >> do you agree that something
3:08 pm
went wrong and that obviously, one full proof system as i said before you heard that one agency that's responsible for all of this? and who should that impossible bece's so much intelligence coming in and there are rightfully different rules about who we can get intelligence about and whether they are here or abroad. whether tfuy are u.s. citizens or not. if we are going to change that that's a much bigger debate than the boston bombings. about theess. some of this are rules that we have alr may regret them in hindsight but the truth is they are for rules. we don't want a foreign intelligence agency of the u.s. government invade our privacy or -- number of agencies that are involved with intelligence at s a reflection of the different rules and standards. is there one person responsible for this? i think that's what we immediate to find out. >> how do you -- how do you separate the real let from the noise that is -- that -- >> that's going to be, i think, after action. if you have half a million namsystem
3:09 pm
environmental system then a bunch of others what are the standards to ration a name up prepare they consistent? i think that's the thing we have to look at because there's in way you can -- i mean, no way you would want to actually focus on half awm million people. it is too broad. you would want more specific intelligence. the mtcc director of national intelligence is to take the noise and to focus it. but i think that what may have happened is it is not clear whether wethe noise on this side. i know that's hard for people to believe. if the russian has stuff that was not triggering investigations we would like the see what t fbi did. this information coming out this weekend, justice story, more complicated. >> it does. for the average viewer lot of information that you are giving. seems in this particular situation, it is a big world. that less is more.s so many people and so many hands that were in this. somebody did -- what was going on. who is going to eventually take the fault? someone has to. >> i can't predict that.
3:10 pm
i have seen how these unfold. look at how they unfolded last week. we had have to just be dash see if there is an individual and particular agency. i thai that you knowa lot of noise and information. one of the things we can learn from this is that -- because of the threat has changed, congressman said and it is more nimble it is also less december ruktive. we should remember that. the threat we are facing is much different than 9/11 than our agency has to be -- >> thank you. thinking about the viewer at home going wait a minute what are they talking about? what's all this information? thank you. we appreciate it. so -- this whole debate over the miranda rights, reading the suspect his miranda rights has become a political debate. is it distracttive from thwarting another attack? we will debate that coming up. if you think running a restaurant is hard try running four. fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards
3:11 pm
on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back into our business. this is the only thing we've ever wanted to do and ink helps us do it. make your mark with ink from chase.
3:12 pm
3:13 pm
from washington and beyond everyone is talking about how the u.s. is handle thing investigation. how the suspect is being interrogated. could this have all been prevented? i want to bring in now ll.g. granderson and anna. she is a cnn contributor. l.z. is a contributor and senior writer for espn. i want you to listen to the attorney general eric holder. he was at the white house correspondents dinner last might suspect his miranda rights and peter king this morning blasting him. take a listen. >> can you comment on the suspect being miran appropriate? >> well i mean the decision to mirandize him is one that the -- magistrate made and was totally
3:14 pm
consistent with the laws that we have. we had a would-day period we were able to question him under the public safety exception. i think everything was done appropriately and we got good leads. >> the fbi wanted to continue on and eric holder now is -- said he approved that interrogation being stopped and is absolutely disgraceful. because that interrogation could have ended many american lives. we know what full consequences will be. we don't know who was involved who can be involved in the future. we may not know because of eric holder. >> okay. i want to start with you now, anna. there is a legal debate here obviously, but there's also an emerging political lines. that efforts to prevent a attack? that should really be a focus here and to prosecute this one could be bogged down by politics? >> i'm not. you know i really don't see it as political as maybe you do. i have heard democrats ask same questions and heard republicans say that it was right to mirandize him. there is a lot of -- what i do
3:15 pm
know is this. people in congress get classified briefings and get information that folks like lfshg z. and me and you on tv don't. i think it is appropriate to ask some questistions that need to be asked. that's why we have government oversight committee and homeland committee. why we have intelligence committees. these questions need to be asked because at the end of the day it is not political. it is about how we keep america safe. when a terrorist strikes, he does not ask for your political affiliation. what he wants is to hurt america and hurt anna is right. people on both sides of the political aisle, they want answers. they have a right to have answers. someone dropped the ball here. peter king is moan for being outspoken. but he makes someg as much as possible about thisy, to prevent others and -- some people made mistakes here. we can't let that happen again. take responsibility. what's wrong with asking questions? >> nothing is wrong with asking a
3:16 pm
problem with the peter king or anyone asks the e to keep in mind thatr this is a u.s. citizen. had is a u.s. citizen that's innocent until proven guilty. even though the overwhelming evidence points towards him may be -- we have to treat him as a u.s. citizen. i think if you were to ask the american people that if the federal government held a u.s. citizen for two days before reading their rights if they thought that was fair or not, they would have some things -- they would have questions of themselves they would want asked as well and answered as well. i agree with everything that's coming out of the administration in terms of how this was handled. when you think about the fact for two days this person was questioned and then they were read their rights as a u.s. citizen, i think that is the -- you know the maximum amount we would expect in that type of situation. once it was determined he was no long area threat to the american people. >> i don't know how you determine that you know it is no longer a threat to the american people. that's a key question.
3:17 pm
you know that's why there is this public safety exception. and -- i think we all agree on that. >> anna hang on. >> they have not proved he was lined with the taliban, al qaeda or any warring nation or group. if we found that out during the two days of investigation, then yes, he would be enemy dom battant. none of that seems to be true. all the pointing to two renegades. if given that and the one you have is an american citizen you have to treat them as a u.s. citizen. >> l.z. miranda issue and the -- hang on. anna, i don't have time -- anna i don't have time. you if i say i don't have time you have to stop. there is a delay here. we shouldn't get the enemy combatant mixed up with with the miranda. those are two different issues. let's go on and washington is still abuzz about last night's correspondents dinner. listen to conan owe sxwrin then we will talk.ovi >> as youknow the
3:18 pm
president is hard at work creating jobs. since he was first elected, number of popes has doubled. and and the number of tonight show hosts has tripled. congratulations. >> anna you were there. you were in washington. what stood out to you? >> i think that will was some great jokes some very hardq, stingers. i thought president obama did a very good job yesterday. he has the delivery down pat. and i think it was particularly funny because a lot of it was ause he was talking to a room that really knows the nuances of the political jokes. frankly, because he followed ed henry who droned on forever and ever and ever. it was great relief and very comic >> l.z., what did you think about the dinner and the jokes? president versus conan o'brien? >> you know i thought that -- i thought conan was -- starting
3:19 pm
off. i kept waiting for him to get it in with president obama. that came out later. i think the president's delivery has always been impeccable. he seems to be at ease in the public spotlight. i want to point out the fact this was a fund-raiser. $100,000 was raised scholarships for generous people like you and i, don, to help keep this profession alive. to me that's the most for part happened last a lot of young women and lot of -- >> next we will get back to boston. the restaurants and the stores closed down. the bombings. they will reopen their coors. we doors. we will talk to them next. >> no higher purpose than folks putting themselves in harm's way. >> a tremendousonal and physical burden we put on our folks that's unprecedent. >> we always going to have some effect.

3:30 pm
talk to them before he was mirandized maybe they may have gotten more. as more evidence is obtained in the investigation. maybe that could have been used to get dzhokhar to change his story. i think they were satisfied the immediate threat public safety issue, had been satisfactoried in terms of that. i don't think that that was as big of an issue. it was two days. this was coming and that there would be a magistrate come in and was right. >> the suspect's father had planned to come to the states to help the investig health. is that frustrating to the fbi? what could the father add to this investigation? >> i don't know what. i don't know if that was originally for humanitarian purpose, to come and bury his dead son and maybe visit and console the second son who was s in thedothat. i think that you know that this something between the russian government and the state
3:31 pm
department of the u.s. as to whether or not they would issue visas for the two of them to come back here and the mother and father come back here. i think that the more we are learning about these russian wire taps or the more we hope to learn, i should say, we won't know whether maybe there is reason the father and mother are worried they could get arrested if they come here. maybe they think we know more than we do and the russians have shared more than they have as toe6!o whatting activities they were doing in dagestan. >> yeah. you read my mind. it doesn't behoove them to come back especially with her facing charges and him -- wanting to talk to him, i don't think it behooves any of them to come back here. they probably won't come back any time soon. >> no. agree with you. i think that they place themselves in legal jeopardy if they do that. but -- you know i would like to make a point onhing about the wiretap that russia apparently had in place on the
3:32 pm
mother back in 2011. you know, when the russians alert the fbi initially that they -- take a look tamerlan bemes radicalized and now it becomes clear they are watching the mother and listening to the mother and then his conversations come up and at the time they don't know if it is him for sure or the young brother. but in those discussions, russia's worried about russia. they weren't furnishing that information to us because they think that hey, he is going to do an attack in the united states. none of these groups have ever attacked the united states. all russia has ever had to contend with since early 1990s was these groups from chechnya attacking them. so -- when the fbi does the investigation that says we find nothing here give us more they will fuentes, thank you. >> you're welcome. up next we will take you around the memorial here in boston and talk to some of those who are paying their respects to the victims of the bombings.

3:40 pm
dzhokhar dzhokhar is gone. won't see the images anywhere take a look. >> a deleted instagram account sources say belonged to dzhokhar. it has not gotten much attention since his arrest. say dzhok used the name j. meister but it was removed before the april 15 bombing. a digital trail shows images that he liked in the past. several include references to chechnya that are marked with dozens of hash tags. one those the warlord from terrorist attack in russia. but was killed in 2006. several showed dzhokhar intera with others. an understanding of chechnya. what they say he used instagram for social purposes. so how will we be able to resurrect them? here is how it works. >> we are looking at a photo from instagram on a site called
3:41 pm
statagram. it is a copy what exists today. these users liked it and we can see there are six comments on here are the hash tags. howeve can also go back in time and thanks to the google other data around that april 10 of the same photo. we the same six comments today. and here is a list of users that liked the felt opponent. most of which are already on there. there have been new ones. like it as well. there there is one that liked it in the april 10 version of the page. it is not on the current version. >> law enforcement experts say the deleted account is likely to get a close look from investigators. if i were an investigator now, obviously the platform he deleted matters the most. were there clues embedded in the combination of images that can tell us something about what dzhokhar was thinking? some of the pictures are benign. some of them standing line do not mean anything. digital footprints continue to get bigger as people become more and alreadyilling to put their lives online.
3:42 pm
>> let's bring in cnn money correspondent laurie segal in new york now. how can we -- how come we haven't heard about the instagram account before? we knew about dzhokhar's account. he tweeted after the attack. >> sure. that's a good question. the idea is he deleted the account before and also don, this account wasn't wide ployn about. we called a lot of his friends and a hey, i know dzhokhar and i would know if he had an instagram but they didn't know. we were able to confirm it from sources close to him. it does look like only a handful of people followed him and knew about the account. it is definitely one you can imagine that law enforcement could be interested in now that this is out there. >> all right. thank you very much. has the boston marathon bombing changed the spectator sports forever? will fans take the risk of being terror attack victims to cheer their team. we are talking about it next.

is it true that even the nfl draft had tighter security this time? >> don, you're absolutely right. we're in a whole new world. we're never going to go back to that old world and it goes further than what you just said. the head of nfl security said the nfl is likely going to ban any sort of bags to its football games. think about that. we're going to get to a point where the only thing you can carry into an nfl game is one of the ugly foam rubber we're number one type of things. talk about the nfl draft this week in new york. it kind of stacrted there. this time it had metal detecters set up they were frisking people. not only just spectatorse ersors but also the prospects, their families and also nfl officials. >> yeah. i can say, yes, i can testify to that. i saw it. i was in new york earlier in the week and i saw the cameras and all of the security there. can -- here's a question though we have been asking.
3:48 pm
can ant ever be truly secure terence? >> well let's just start with this okay? this is the 50th anniversary of the jfk assassination. and a few days before kennedy was killed he told people if somebody wants to kill the president, there's nothing anybody can do about it. and it's somewhat that same sentiment with what we're talking about here. i tell you what don, there's been 47 super bowls. i've covered about half of them. every super bowl the security gets tighter and tighter. new orleans, your hometown this year you know you walk in you got to go through the metal detector. they had the bomb-sniffing dogs right there. then just the media going from gate to gate getting to the press box. they had one of those little computerized guns to check your press pass about four five times. here's my point. in thell that you had this horrific blackout yet to be explained, which could
3:49 pm
have been a terrorist delight. >> okay. yeah. let's talk about the draft a little bit more. not security. manti te'o got drafted by san diego but a lot later than once thought. number 38 pick overall? >> yeah. you know what the most interesting thing about this is there were a couple officials of nfl teams who admitted the tru and that is they did not take manti in the first round simply because of his fake girlfriend. now, don, i want to tell you why this is significant. over the last few weeks, last few months we've been hearing from nfl players, nfl executives about how tolerant nfl locker rooms have become over all sorts of things. well by this we see that that tolerance thing, not so much. so if you've got gay out there, what have you, i don't know, they might be thinking twice about coming out. >> well and also too, they're worried about this following him and they're going to have to talk about it all the timay overshadow the actual team and what happens on the field.
