tv   New Day With John Berman and Brianna Keilar  CNN  June 9, 2022 4:00am-5:00am PDT

4:00 am
116-100 win and good news, john, in nba finals history teams that have won game three in a series tied at 1 won it 82% of the time every time. >> i like those numbers. very physical game, finals getting very rough. coy wire, thank you, deliver more news like that for me. i appreciate t "new day" continues right now. ♪ ♪ foorpg to viewers here in the united states and all around the world, it is thursday, june 9th. i'm john berman with brianna keilar. what goes up is going higher. gas prices ever so close to $5 a gallon. the national average now $4.97, the 13th straight day of new highs, the 30th in the last 31 days. >> it may be cold comfort, but still worth noting that when you
4:01 am
adjust for inflation price right side not actually at record highs, but what is the white house plan for handling soaring prices and inflation that are affecting americans so severely. joining us is gene sperling, he is currently the white house american rescue plan coordinator and a senior advisor to president biden. he was a national economic council adviser in the clinton administration. gene, let's talk about maybe what can be done to take some of the edge off here. is another release of more barrels from the strategic reserve a possibility here? >> look, we're trying to do everything we can. you know, when you are talking about looking in real inflation adjusted terms, the day that putin moved troops to the border of belarus gas prices were at $3.31, that was actually below the average that we had over the last decade. as you say, it's now $4.97, that
4:02 am
is $1.60 -- that's over $1.60 tax, putin tax, on the american pu public. little comfort that it's higher for families in canada or europe and it's why the president as you said has already committed to releasing 180 barrels from the strategic petroleum reserve, which is actually a million a day that is still going on in addition he has asked other countries, he's asked oil companies who are still sitting on 9,000 leases who have $35 billion in profits to do more of what they can do. he has, as you know, allowed e-15 gas over the summer to put more downward pressure. but, look, there is no question our families are taking a hit from this unthinkable aggression in russia and we need to have everything on the table, not just bringing gas prices down, but why don't we do more things?
4:03 am
why doesn't the republican congress work more with us to bring down the cost of prescription drugs, insulin, child care. these are things we can do. they may be in different areas than gas, but they all help the pocketbook of american families. >> do you have a sense -- can you tell us how much the releases from the reserve have dropped the price of gas? >> look, there's no question it's helped. it has increased supply and we're pushing our foreign allies to also increase supply at the same time. we are hoping that this helps -- >> can you quantify it, though, gene? can you quantify it? i mean, are we talking cents? >> that is an interesting question and it's always a tough issue, how much worse would things have been if you had not taken the positive action that you had. i think that -- that it is bringing oil down, but, again, if you look at just the price of oil in global markets, brent,
4:04 am
that was $87 when putin made this first move, that's over $125. so, yes, it is -- it has given some relief compared to doing nothing, but it's not enough and i understand it's going to be very little comfort to an american family going through the grocery line, going through the gas pump to know it's even worse for a family in canada or europe and or would be even worse if the president had not taken historic action on the strategic petroleum reserve. i promise you this, there is openness to virtually -- to a variety of different policy options that we could get if we could get bipartisan cooperation to do even more to bring down the price of gas or the price of other basic goods or the cost of other basic things from prescription drugs to child care for the very same american families who are dealing with this putin tax hike. >> what about a windfall tax for big oil so that some of the record profits go back to
4:05 am
treasury? >> well, you know, as i said, there's a lot of options being considered and i think, you know -- i think that -- >> is that one of them? >> they're saying hold it. oil profits are $35 billion in the fourth quarter, they were four times higher normal averages and you can't do more to keep prices down? you can't do more to use your existing oil permits to increase supply? i think that basically begs a lot of policymakers to start looking at whether that's a source of relief, but i don't want to, you know, get ahead of the president. i would just say that there are lots of ideas that are on the table that are being considered and you will know when the president feels ready to make a decision and also when he feels that there is enough bipartisan support so that it has a true chance of passage in the united states congress and actually having a positive impact for the
4:06 am
american families dealing with this unthinkable russian aggression that is hitting us home at the gas pump. >> if the white house, gene, determines the economy is going into a recession will the white house tell the american public so that they can be prepared? >> look, we're -- we are more reassuring than some of those who are raising the dark clouds and i think if you look at the last job report it gives some reason for that. >> no, but i'm saying if -- if you -- if you determine that, though. so you're reassured, but if you determine, can you assure them that if you were to think that this is where it was headed that you would give them a heads up so they could prepare? >> brianna, we will always be straight with the american people. one of the things we've said and we've said so far is that the type of record growth, the highest growth in 40 years that you saw in 2021, the record job
4:07 am
growth, the, you know, four, five, 600,000 jobs a month, we've been very clear, that kind of job growth and growth was great in getting our economy back from this historic pandemic, but we don't expect that that can go on forever. what we are saying to people is we do think there's going to be a move to more stable growth that will have lower prices but we have also wanted to be -- and are rightly reassuring that the u.s. has shown greater resilience than virtually any country because those strengthened job markets, at fact that the last market showed another 300,000, 400,000 people now 4.2 million as part of this great return to work means that there is resilience in the economy. so we are being straight with people, hey, you are not going to have record job growth go on every month, but that we are better positioned than any country in the world to make that transition to more stable balanced growth with lower prices and without giving up
4:08 am
these job gains. so that's what we see. i think that's what a lot of chiss in the world see. there will always be different opinions by economic forecasters and we are not going to play economic forecaster, but we're straight that we need to get to more stable growth, we're not going to pretend you can have the record job growth we have had every single month, we're not going to suggest that a team could hit 12 out of 15 three-pointers all the time but we think we are well-positioned because the american rescue plan, because of the strength of this recovery, because of the number of people coming back into the workforce who are working to have resilience. that's what we see and we will always be straight about how we see the economy, that's where we see it right now. >> gene, thank you so much for being with us. thank you. we do appreciate it. >> appreciate you having me. thank you. we do have new video overnight showing the fbi
4:09 am
raiding the california home of the 26-year-old man charged with plotting to murder supreme court justice brett kavanaugh. police say he called emergency services after arriving outside kavanaugh's maryland home and said he was having suicidal thoughts and had a firearm in his suitcase. that all led up to his arrest. cnn's whitney wild has been reporting on this story and joins us now with the very latest. whitney? >> reporter: john, this man told police that he was angered over a pending supreme court ruling on abortion, he was angered over what he saw in uvalde as well. he thought that by killing the supreme court justice and then killing himself he would give his life purpose. it is the very type of crime federal officials have been warning for months is possible in this heightened threat environment and it is particularly alarming for law enforcement throughout washington as a series of high profile events descends on the city. a california man is in custody this morning after he told police he wanted to kill a
4:10 am
supreme court justice and then kill himself. he said to give his life purpose. upset over the leak of a draft ruling overturning roe v. wade the mass shooting in uvalde texas and the possibility that the court could loosen gun laws authorities say the man went to justice brett kavanaugh's home with a gun, zip ties and other tools, but after seeing two deputy u.s. marshals outside he called 911 on himself. >> this kind of behavior is obviously -- is behavior that we will not tolerate. threats of violence and actual violence against the justices strike at the heart of our democracy. >> reporter: attorney general merrick garland and law enforcement vowing to ramp up security in the nation's capitol as the january 6th hearings are set to begin tonight in prime time and washington gears up for a potentially volatile june. that's when major supreme court decisions, large-scale protests and more tours at the capitol will converged in an already heightened threat environment. >> there's, i think, a lot of
4:11 am
vitriol. >> reporter: capitol police steve tom major a is ramping up security while d.c. police are activating their riot cops throughout the month. these moves come as the department of homeland security warns of the possibility of a violent summer and fall fueled by conspiracy theories and extremist ideologies. a major concern the pending abortion ruling. intelligence analysts warn of potential threats toward lawmakers, supreme court justices, abortion providers and religious groups, the threats coming from both sides of the abortion debate. >> i am worried about the violence, i'm worried about the lone actor coming in and doing something dangerous. >> reporter: protests related to abortion and gun laws could bring thousands of people to washington just as the highly anticipated public hearings into the january 6th insurrection begin. and more visitors are expected to flow into the capitol after a two-year covid related closure. sources say capitol police are
4:12 am
now adding overtime shifts. >> the focus is really on what the protests that are going on at the court, the protests that are going on at the homes of the justices. i understand that tension could very quickly turn to, you know, to the capitol. >> reporter: that tension already surfacing on social media and captured by intelligence analysts from d.c.'s homeland security agency. >> this is occurring almost on a daily basis in terms of any types of threats. the posts that concern us the most are threats against individuals or specific places. >> reporter: intelligence analysts have flagged roughly a dozen threats as credible enough to be investigated further. >> we're seeing threats from all parts of the political spectrum. >> reporter: federal officials say that this tense environment, again, is going to continue through the summer and very likely through the fall as we lead up to the midterm elections. fending that off comes down to resources, it comes down to the number of officers and agents -- agencies have k. put up to fend against this potential risk.
4:13 am
capitol police say they are still down hundreds of officers and so they are doing everything they can to recruit more officers, they're raising the base pay, they're adding a retention bonus and also opening up the opportunity for federal officers and other agencies to lateral over because they know at the end of the day this becomes a manpower issue. further, john, up on capitol hill there is still some -- some effort to try to look for creative ways and further ways to add security, especially when it comes to the supreme court. there is a bill up for debate still that would extend the security from the supreme court police to members of the supreme court justices' families, staff and anyone else that the marshall of the supreme court deems as necessary as needing that enhanced security, john. >> whitney wild bracing for potentially dangerous month. thank you for your reporting. let's bring in cnn anchor and chief national affairs analyst kasie hunt and political analyst david gregory. theoretically we were worried about threats and now we understand why there has been so
4:14 am
much of a concern, david. >> absolutely. and this is horrifying. i mean, activism has its place, of course, speaking out has its place, but to threat a supreme court justice and his family outside of his home is beyond the pale, cannot be tolerated, every politician has an obligation to stand up, condemn this and to do something about it. and the truth is that a lot of people on the left who are in political power are being so hypocritical about this. they lecture us all the time about the excesses of the right, including donald trump on january 6, fomenting mob violence and yet they are out there countenancing as they have with statements before that it's okay to stand outside these people's homes. >> can we listen to that sound? this is former white house press secretary jen psaki as well as senate majority leader chuck schumer. >> i know that there's an outrage right now, i guess,
4:15 am
about protests that have been peaceful to date and we certainly continue to encourage that outside of judges' homes and that's the president's position. >> if protests are peaceful, yes, my house is -- there's protests three, four times a week outside my house. that's the american way to peacefully protest is okay and i've been -- that's my wife, sorry -- >> she's protesting. >> maybe there is a protest outside. >> it's not a laughing matter as we're thinking about it now. just to be clear those were statements made after that abortion draft was leaked. >> right. but the problem is, yes, peacefully protest but what's happening -- i mean, i go back to, you know, bill clinton's admonition, right, about right wing radio, be careful on whose ears these messages fall. you go outside someone's house, that is menacing when there's children there who are not protected by security. the justices are, their families are not and they're going off to
4:16 am
school in the morning. it's intimidating. then you can have an instance here where you apparently have someone who by any, you know, measure appears to not be mentally well and is talking about suicidal ideation and turning himself in, but this is what can happen when you have this kind of intense incendiary atmosphere. >> also there is this house bill that's hung up. they could have acted on something to protect the family members as david talked b it's not been passed yet. >> right, so the senate unanimously said, okay, if the officers of the court think that family members or other staff members need protection they should be able to call for that. it's still hung up in the house of representatives. i think it's going to be important to watch what is the timing on this? i mean, we are expecting -- we're heading into the final days of the court's session, always the most volatile and intense, we're expecting obviously a potentially earth-shattering decision on roe v. wade, there's also some gun decisions coming out. i'd like to know whether that bill is likely to get through the house of representatives before that happens.
4:17 am
it's not right now on track to do that. i think to david's point, too, there's no question, yes, peaceful protests are part of being american, but there is a responsibility for people in leadership positions to talk to people who believe in them and who elected them about where is the line and where should we be drawing that line, especially when we're seeing political violence seep into more and more of our conversations, whether it's january 6th or what's going on with brett kavanaugh here. at what point do we say our public servants deserve to be able to live a private life in safety. if you want to show up at the supreme court and protest, maybe that's the place to do t that's clearly not where democratic leaders are right now and i think it's because of their base. >> i should just say real quickly steny hoyer did say relatively soon, but there is no hard and fast date -- >> you can't keep tearing down institutions and saying to people they are political actors and protest them. you have to protect the supreme court as something that's above
4:18 am
politics, even when there is politics involved in some of what they do, we have to do that for their safety. >> stand by for me, if you will. biden telling jimmy kimmel he trusts mitch mcconnell even on issues like guns. >> this has negotiations intensify on capitol hill. we're joined by the top democrat involved in those talks. and for us at this means - free cancellation on most bookingsgs. it's a bit functional. but we'll gladly bebe functional. so you can be free. booking.yeah finding the perfect developer isn't easy. but, at upwork, we found her. she's in prague betwee the ideal cup of coffee and you can find her right now (lepsi?) on (lepsi.) when the world is your workforce, finding the perfect project manager, designer, developer, or whomever you may need... tends to fall right into place.

4:23 am
democratic negotiator on bipartisan talks on gun reform legislation. thanks for being with us. can you give us the latest on these negotiations? >> so we are making real progress and let's be honest, there is a reason why congress hasn't passed any serious anti-gun violence legislation in 30 years, it's really been since 1994 since we have attacked this problem. this is the most politically complicated, emotionally fraught issue that congress deals with, it too often incentivizes both sides to retreat to their political corners and just run to litigate the issue in the next election. this time does feel different. most part because the american public are just freaked out, frightened, anxious about the state of safety today and they want us to act. so we're talking about -- we're talking about red flag laws, we're talking about improvements to our background check system, we're talking about targeting 18 to 2 is year olds to try to make sure only the right people get their hands on weapons and we are talking about a massive and
4:24 am
historic investment in mental health and school safety. we think we can get that done, but we worked late into the night last night trying to get agreement. >> and i do want to ask about each of those issues you just brought up in a moment but i also want to mention a gun safety activist who is a survivor from parkland met with you yesterday and he said just met with chris murphy, feeling the most optimistic i have ever felt, he said. why did you give him such grounds for optimism? why did he emerge from that meeting so optimistic? what did you tell him? >> i don't think you can be anything other than comparatively optimistic. i've been part of many, many negotiations before, since sandy hook, obviously my life is devoted to this cause on behalf of the victims and i have never been part of a negotiation that's this serious. our group continues to grow in size, no one has walked away from the table. i mean, listen, i still think
4:25 am
there are more paths to failure than there are to success, but we've never gotten this far on complicated comprehensive negotiations before. >> when do you think you will be done? by the end of this week? >> i mean, i certainly had targeted trying to get an agreement by the end of this week. we're still driving towards that goal, but, again, this is -- this is complicated law and we want to make sure that we get it right, not do it fast. so everybody is still at the table, nobody is walking away and i'm still confident we have a path to get there. >> does it get harder, though, if it depose on past this week, other events sure to happen? >> yeah, that historically has been the difficulty here, time is never our friend when we're talking about getting people to the table on something as difficult as gun laws and gun violence. i think that phenomenon likely
4:26 am
still applies except for the fact that something different is happening out there in the american public in both conservative states and more democratic-leaning states you have parents that just are not going to accept nothing as an option this time. they're sick and tired of talking to their kids about where their kids are going to hide when a gunman walks into their school. so the urgency from the american public doesn't seem to be going away and i'm glad about that because it will keep the pressure on us. >> i want to ask you about red flag laws which does seem to be an area that you were very focused on with your republican colleagues in discussion here, but i also understand there is some difficulty in the negotiation. i'm trying to understand what that difficulty is because there are red flag laws in some states around the country including republican-led states. i don't believe you're talking about federally mandated red flag laws, you're talking about incentivizing states to do it, so where is the tension? >> i think there has been some
4:27 am
lingering confusion, past proposals have suggested a federal red flag law, i've actually never thought that was a good idea, i don't think you want law enforcement to have to go into the federal courts to take temporarily firearms away from a dangerous individual. so we have to clean up some of the confusion around what we're proposing. we are talking about incentivizing state red flag laws and providing substantial funding to implement them. one of the problems we have seen even in states that have them is unless everybody knows how to use them, that includes law enforcement, teachers, local officials, parents, then they're not as useful as they should be. so we're talking about substantial funding both to help states implement new red flag laws but also to help states that already have them make theirs more effective. >> so what's the hang up, though? is it just the confusion you were mentioning? >> listen, as you know, there
4:28 am
are just some members of the senate, i think a decreasing number, who aren't interested in passing any laws on the issue of gun violence, and it just takes some time to get over people's 30-year reticence to pass any new federal laws on firearms. >> is it still accurate to say as we have been told that raising the age to buy semiautomatic ar-15-style weapons is off the table or not on the table to raise the age to 21? >> i think we continue to try to find a path to 60 votes that includes some provision that recognizes these 18 to 21 year olds tend to be the mass shooters and that many times they have juvenile criminal records or past histories of mental health that should prohibit them from buying a
4:29 am
weapon. so we are zeroing in on this population, trying to find the path to bipartisan agreement. i will say i think there's republican support for raising the age to 21. i don't know whether there are 60 votes for that proposal so we're exploring some other important and impactful options. >> talk to me about the parameters of no he is other options, if you will. explain exactly what that means looking into the juvenile records or having access to juvenile records and how that equates to perhaps a waiting period. >> well, i'm not going to go into the details of our negotiations right now, it's important for me not to negotiate through the press, so all i will say is that i think there is bipartisan agreement that this population merits additional scrutiny and i hope that we're going to be able to find a path to try to make sure that, again, only law-abiding
4:30 am
citizens who present no threat of danger to their neighbors or to their classmates are able to get their hands on weapons. >> would additional scrutiny, though, does that lead perhaps to a waiting period? s>> well, again, there's this complicated question of access to juvenile records, some states seal those records, others don't. there are, in fact, many states now that upload those records into the national database system. these are complicated legal questions and we're sorting through them right now to try to find a path forward. >> i'm just curious when you're talking about getting to 60 votes the republicans you are negotiating with are they negotiating trying to get a majority of republican votes or are they focused on ten, getting ten republican votes for the measures? >> i think you would have to ask them. i think that we can put together a package that will get more than ten republican votes and, again, the reason for that is
4:31 am
the demand there their constituents. you've seen news reports in cnn about senators from very conservative states who are considering voting for this because they have been deluged by phone calls from parents telling them that they need to step up and do something about this. i can't speak to what the goal is for my republican colleagues in terms of the number of votes out of their conference, but i certainly think that we can get well above ten republican votes for this package. >> so cnn has reported that senator mitch mcconnell in private has expressed an openness to raising the age to buy ar-15-style weapons to 21, i'm not going to ask about that but i am going to ask about senator mcconnell. last night on jimmy kimmel live president biden talked about the senate minority leader and how he trusts him in these negotiations. listen. >> i've always had a straight relationship with -- with the majority -- with the republican
4:32 am
leader, mitch mcconnell. you know, he's a guy that when he says something he means t i disagree with a lot of what he says but he means it. >> do you share that trust in the idea that mcconnell is a trustworthy negotiating partner on this issue? >> well, senator mcconnell has empowered senator john cornyn from texas who has been through too many of these massacres in his state to sit at the table with me and others to craft this compromise. my assumption is that senator mcconnell is read into all of the negotiations that we've had and i appreciate the fact that senator mcconnell has given senator cornyn and myself and others the space to negotiate. i can't sort of speak for the conversations that senator mcconnell and senator cornyn have had but i think it is significant that senator mcconnell has empowered these negotiations to happen. >> i also want to play a little
4:33 am
bit more from the president's interview with jimmy kimmel when he talked about whether or not executive actions would help here. listen. >> can't you issue an executive order? trump passed those out like halloween candy. isn't that something that can happen? >> well, i have issued executive orders within the power of the presidency to be able to deal with these -- everything having to do with guns, gun ownership, whether or not you have to have a waiting -- all the things that are within my power, but what i don't want to do and i'm not being facetious, i don't want to emulate trump's abuse of the constitution and constitutional authority. >> so there are gun safety advocates who do wish president biden would do more with executive action. do you think he is as limited as he said? >> well, first of all, that's a good answer. you know, just because trump exceeded his authority under the constitution doesn't mean that
4:34 am
biden should. i think there is a limited amount of changes that the administration can make through executive action on the issue of gun violence. our statutes are broken. they are just broken. right now there are far too many commercial sales that happen without a background check. it is too easy for dangerous people to get their hands on weapons. we aren't doing enough to empower states to temporarily take guns away from people who are posing a threat to their neighbors. the primary problem here is not lack of executive action, the primary problem are broken statutes. the law of the united states needs to change and so i think he is right that it is our responsibility in congress to pass laws that save lives and not just simply pass the buck to the administration. >> so i will say you are projecting a sense of optimism in these discussions and with your public statements that they are going well, that they are continuing, that they are good faith talks. so i don't want to necessarily,
4:35 am
you know, cast a shadow over it, but if they do fail, what will be the reason? how will you explain that? >> i mean, listen, i think i've been honest that while i acknowledge that these are more serious than any other talks we've had, that there is a reason why for 30 years nothing has happened on the issue of gun violence. if we achieve an agreement it will be historic. it won't include everything that i want, but it will break a three decades long log jam. if we fail, i mean, i guess i can't pre diagnose the reasons why we would fail, but i can tell you the stakes. parents and kids and families out there, i think they are already casting doubt over the efficacy of democracy because it hasn't been able to deliver for them economically, they are just treading water out there, but if we can't deliver on the thing that matters most to parents,
4:36 am
the physical safety of their kids, then they are going to ask this fundamental question what on earth are we doing here and that's the request he that i posed at the outset to my colleagues why are you here if not to solve this problem. i think this is a possible crisis for democracy if we don't step up and do something about this when you have so much demand from democratic parents, republican parents, apolitical parents telling congress to protect their children. >> senator chris murphy, i know these have been late nights for you, i know this is difficult work and i do appreciate you joining us. thank you. >> thanks a lot. thank you. and we're back now with kasie hunt and david gregory to talk about what was really an optimistic interview full of so much information there, but i just want to zero in on one thing in particular which was you were agreeing when chris murphy was assess that go republicans are under some pressure because there is a shift in public opinion in their states that something has to be done. >> and you saw this, cnn had
4:37 am
reporting that cynthia lummis the senator from wyoming said people are inundating my office with phone calls on this. i think this has been an ongoing sea change every single time one of these terrible tragedies has happened the pressure has gotten more and more intense. look at what happened in florida after parkland, rick scott, the governor, now he's running for president so the way he talks about it is different, we suspect he's going to run for president, but they all looked at this together and the republican legislature there across the board they made significant changes around a lot of the areas they are talking about here, red flag laws, other ways to try to prevent these things from happening. i think that's one of the reasons -- like the fact that that was possible in a republican state like florida shows you that people -- people in the middle and chris murphy called them apolitical parents, people that don't necessarily pay attention to the process they are engaged on this issue and they're really, really upset. you can see the difference between when we were talk about this after sandy hook to now, there is political pressure on republicans to be seen doing
4:38 am
something, even if it's very small. >> should we get our hopes up? >> it's hard, it's hard if you've been following this. i liked hearing chris murphy, i liked that john cornyn is involved, there have been serious attempts to do some things that are still narrow but important, raising the age -- again, if you look at the data why shouldn't you raise the age from 18 to 21 to be able to purchase a long gun or any kind of assault gun -- >> but that's not what they're talking about, they're talking about more scrutiny for that age group. >> you know, as a parent, you know, my kids have been locked down in school recently, there was a shooting in washington, d.c. that forced the lockdown of two schools. we all confront this in a way where we want added protection at the school, we want armed officers there, but, my god, if guns were the answer we would be the safest country in the world. that's not the answer as much as school security as finding ways to -- to bridge freedom where necessary as we do in other areas, counterterrorism or laws
4:39 am
with regard to safety in our cars to just try to make this harder. as we were talking about just a minute ago we also have to focus on the fact that we do have this epidemic of young people who are engaging in suicidal behavior by carrying out these mass shootings knowing they will get the kind of attention that all of this engenders to ultimately die in the process of it. we have to be able to focus resources and attention on how that's building up in communities and leading to these events. >> bottom line, there is something very significant and important about the idea of congress actually passing something, especially with republican support. even if those measures are relatively limited, they haven't been able to do it before. chris murphy has said out loud that there is value in showing republicans who have not done this in the past that they can do it without losing their political lives. that that could potentially set the stage for more. >> and that it doesn't just have to be a debate about getting rid of guns, i think that's been the
4:40 am
playbook for the left for a long time. it hasn't worked. and the right stands up to its base by saying, no, we can bridge some of what we consider bedrock freedoms in the name of gun safety not in the name of gun control and getting rid of guns which i think is a political nonstarter. >> so great to talk to both of you this morning. thank you. john stamos opening up about the loss of his friend bob sa saget. an about face interest from kevin mccarthy on finding out the truth about the capitol attack, what new audio is revealing this morning. t westers you get rewarded when you stay on the road and on the go. find your rewards so you can reconnect, disconnect, hold on tight and let go! stay two nigights and get a free night. book now a at (mom allen) verizon just gave us all a brand new iphone 13.

4:45 am
and i'm committed to make sure that happens. >> that was house republican leader kevin mccarthy just five days after the capitol riot vowing to find out what happened, even suggesting the creation of what seemed to be a bipartisan commission to investigate. all of this coming out in newly released audio from alex burns and jonathan martin for his book "this will not pass." joining knee now is cnn political analyst and "new york times" senior political correspondent maggie haberman. to hear kevin mccarthy say what he wants is full kentuckying of what happened, though he opposes this committee that's holding these hearings tonight. >> opposes this committee and really just a huge kudos to my colleagues for getting these tapes. we know though that mccarthy was saying things to his caucus that he didn't live up to at all, that within two weeks of donald trump leaving office he went down to mar-a-lago to make peace with him. why? because kevin mccarthy wants to be speaker and this was seen adds the fastest way. donald trump was not getting off the scene.
4:46 am
it was clear that the reaction in congress to what happened on january 6 was just not commensurate with the republican base and so kevin mccarthy moved on quickly and he hindered the work of this committee. he has shown very little interest in finding out exactly what happened and who is accountable and who should be held accountable for t it's startling to hear this audio. >> i want to play a little bit more of that jonathan and alex got here and it has to do with what you might think is important from these hearings over the next week and a half or so it is kevin mccarthy again talking about that day, january 6. listen. >> when they started breaking into my office myself and the staff got removed from the office. in doing so, i made a phone call to the president telling him what was going on, asking him to tell these people to stop, to make a video and go out. and i was very intense and very loud about it. >> this gets to the subject of
4:47 am
what then president trump was doing, which is still for all the video we've seen and all the reporting that has been out there, it's still one of the things that is left unanswered. >> that's right, john. look, the two hearings that i think are going to be the most significant in the coming weeks are going to be the one related to mike pence who in many ways was the target of a lot of this and also was, you know, the hero in this story in terms of standing up and not doing what trump wanted and then insisting that the certification finish that day, and then the other is this 187 minutes and what donald trump was doing. i have had some reporting, cnn has had some reporting, we've all had dribs and drabs, but there is a three-hour timeline that is something of a black hole both about what trump was doing and what activities he and his aides were taking in terms of getting the national guard up to capitol hill and if this hearing can answer those questions i think it would be really important. >> maggie haberman, great to have you on this morning. space slam. how the james web telescope is holding up after being hit by a
