eight years as vp and high name recognition put him at the top of recent polls. but he faces a democratic party far different than the last time he ran for office. progressive issues now front and center. not so much foreign policy. >> sources say his team thought about releasing the announcement yesterday. but they were warned it might be a bad idea, drawing attention away from a 2020 forum focus on women of color. several candidates in the race appeared at the she, the people event. here are some of the highlights. >> i will have a woman running mate. to me, it's really clear that we do. >> women of color are the heart and soul of the democratic party and heart and soul of our nation. they're critical. >> we also need an equal rights amendment ratified in this country so that no one can be discriminated against on any basis whatsoever. >> why should women of color choose you as a nominee for president? >> because of my track record my entire life of focusing on women of color.

the democrats are trying to win 2020. the only way they can luck out is by constantly going after me on nonsense. >> house oversight chairman elijah cummings calls is a massive and growing pattern of obstruction. he says these employees and their personal attorneys should think very carefully about their own legal interests rather than being swept up in the obstruction schemes of the trump administration. it was, quote, like pulling teeth to get the white house to pay attention to attempted russian interference ahead of the 2020 election. we're told one reason it was so hard is that senior west wing staff felt it wasn't a good idea to bring up issues related to russia in front of the president. >> one person who does not need to be reminded about russian influence is hillary clinton. president trump's 2016 opponent penning a new op-ed for the "washington post." she writes the debate about how to respond to russia's sweeping
and systematic attack and how to hold president trump accountable for obstructing the investigation and possibly breaking the law has been reduced to a false choice. immediate impeachment or nothing. history suggests there's a better way to think about the choices ahead. >> clinton urges house democrats to conduct hearings to help the public better understand the allegations in the mueller report and she adds, obviously, this is personal for me and some may say i'm not the right messenger. that hine was retweeted by george conway, the husband of presidential counselor kellyanne conway with the note, perhaps so. probably so. but if she's with the constitution, i'm with her. >> a man who carried out one of the most disturbing hate crimes in the country's history has been executed in texas. 44-year-old john william king is one of three convicted for the murder of james byrd joish. king, brewer and shawn berry

big problems reported earnings on wednesday. tesla and facebook. both reported huge losses in the first quarter. tesla snapped its profit streak, losing $702 million. its revenue also fell 37% to $4.5 billion. earlier this month, tesla revealed it's delivered about 63,000 vehicles to customers in the first quarter, a 31% drop from the fourth quarter last year and the single largest decline it's every reported. if you think $700 million is bad, facebook preparing to pay 3 to $5 billion in fines related to an ongoing investigation by the federal trade commission. the company set aside $3 billion in legal expenses related to the investigation which cut into it profits for the first quarter. facebook's profit fell for the first quarter, 51%. to $2.4 billion. that marks the company's first year over year profit decline since 2015. >> hmm. how much screen time is actually

washington, the defending champion capitals are going home. the carolina hurricanes were down two goals on the brink of elimination. they fight back to tie it with this. all we see is five caps defenders. all at the back of the net. about 2:00 to go, the caps could have taken the lead. look at brock come flying in knocking the puck away. with effort like that, carolina forces o.t. then double o.t. and guess who was there to deflect in the game winner, brock mcginn. that ends the third longest game 7 in nhl history. 4-3 carolina. the underdogs moving on to face the new york islanders in round two. with the caps eliminated, this is the first time that all four division champs fail to make it out of the first round. speaking of underdogs, the l.a. clippers went on the road to face golden state and refused to let the warriors sink their series last night. williams came off the bench to wreak havoc on the defending
champs. 33 points in a 129-121 win that forces game 6 in l.a. tomorrow. coach doc rivers says there probably wasn't a ticket sold because -- the warriors shouldn't have been looking ahead. they have fight. >> mix of arrogance and just hard work. you know, we have a lot of young guys. we have a lot of veterans, guys that want to prove their names. we were wrote off early in the year. people saying we weren't a good team. we take those things, digest it and make as much as we can out of it. it showed in the series. >> houston rockets get extra rest as they wait to face the winner of the warriors/clippers series. punching their ticket to the second round with pay 100-93 win last night. clint capela is ready for a date with golden state. >> this is what i want. i want to face them.

minutes past the hour. the list of democrats running in 2020 jumps to 20 today because joe biden will announce his presidential bid this morning. the former vice president rallied donors and supporters on a conference call yesterday. he offered a brief preview of his campaign's message saying the soul of the country is at stake. biden under scored the importance of a strong fundraising performance right out of the gate. >> source tells us the pennsylvania native will hold his first campaign event in pittsburgh on monday. then he'll hit the road to iowa, south carolina and new hampshire. biden's decades in the senate, aet years at vp and high name recognition and years as vp put him at the top of recent polls. he faces a democratic party far different from the last time he ran for office. progressive issues are now front and center, not foreign policy. >> sources say biden's team thought about releasing the announcement video yesterday, but they were warned it would be a bad idea to draw attention away from a 2020 forum focused on women of color.
several candidates already in the race appeared at the she the people event. here are some of the highlights. >> i will have a woman running mate to me. it's really clear that we do. >> women and color are the heart and soul of the democratic party and heart and soul of our nation. they're critical. >> we also need an equal rights amendment ratified in this country so that no one can be discriminated against on any basis whatsoever. >> why should women of color choose you as a nominee for president? >> because of my track record my entire life of focusing on women of color. >> the focus on women yesterday prompting speculation that john mccain's widow cindy mccain and daughter meghan would endorse biden. long-time friend of late republican senator. cindy mccain denied the speculation tweeting joe biden is a wonderful man, however, i have no intention of getting involved in presidential politics.
let's bring in nathan gonzalez, a cnn political analyst. good morning, good to see you, sir. >> good morning. i didn't get drafted in the nfl, but i appreciate you having me on still. >> still waiting for your call, like me. keep waiting for that call. joe biden's call comes this morning in this online video. we're expecting it shortly. we keep saying as we just did, that the party moved so far to the left since he left the stage, but i keep wondering, if the party has moved so far left, how is biden entering as the clear front-runner? >> well, i think first of all, democrats love joe biden. i think particularly they love vice president joe biden. a what will be interesting, he steps into becoming a presidential candidate. how that shifts. one of the downsides of being a front-runner, the other candidates have to cut him down. he's going to be the subject of either some covert or -- attacks. because he's one of the frontrunners. the thing most fascinating about joe biden getting into this
race, demographically, he no longer fits the democratic party. ideologically, he no longer fits the democratic party. if he's the candidate viewed as the most likely to defeat president trump, then that could smooth over some other areas where he doesn't line up neatly with the party right now. >> my point is, it's the loudest voices in the room that have moved so far to the left. if biden's party is moved too far left, he would not be the leader. that's the point i'm trying to make. i don't think we can settle the debate by saying it's moved left. >> couldn't it be familiarity and his -- all the independents out there, people who might have voted for trump last time around looking for something else. is biden the clear appeal at this point to that group? >> well, i think if we look at primaries overall and we look at primaries at the senate level and house level, the people who vote in primaries are often the most ideological. the most conservative on the republican side or the most
liberal progressive. that plays, dave, to your point whether -- even if a majority of the party isn't shifting to the left, the most likely primary voters, i think, are shifting to the left. so that's why that's an important constituent si to have. in capturing the heart and soul and the minds of the democratic party is important. but it's combining that mind with the heart. where do they feel like they are ideologically. defeating president trump is the most important priority for democrats. that's where things get more complex over the next year. >> i can't help but wonder if he's going to campaign on defending obamacare and fixing it and signaling that he's not necessarily moving left on that medicare for all. a lot of questions will be answered over the weekend. let's turn to the man who occupies the oval office. who biden could be taking on. president trump is defiant, stonewalling congress on all fronts. here's what he said about that
yesterday. >> we're fighting all the subpoenas. look, these aren't like impartial people. the democrats are trying to win 2020. the only way they can luck out is by constantly going after me on nonsense. >> to you now, a reminder of all the things that the white house is stonewalling from congress. the latest, the bottom there, stephen miller won't testify on immigration. nathan, this is on all fronts an assault against congress's duty as a check. their oversight. is this the tone that the president wants to set? is this what we will see for the next two years? really, an us versus them, forget about policy? >> i think this is what this president and this white house has been. the tone that they've had. i think it's the tone they're going to have. >> he's relishing the fight. >> i think it's no surprise. this is what the base wants. they like it when the president
is defiant toward the media, defiant toward democrats. i think where things get tricky is that democrats aren't really -- they have this investigative power and the subpoena power, but in the campaign, they don't talk about the president as much. democrats are unified in defeating the president. they don't have to bring it up all the time. as far as a campaign message, you'll hear democrats talk about health care because that's what helped them in the 2018 elections. that's going to be the forward-looking message that you'll hear from the democratic party. >> all right. thanks, nathan. >> good to see you, sir. >> the boy scouts of america says it believes more than 7800 of its leaders sexually abuse children. new court testimony shows the number nearly 3,000 more than previously known. it includes scout leaders, scout masters across the country. the abuse happened over the course of 72 years. more than 12,000 alleged victims have been identified. the boy scouts in a statement
