working to combat asian hate, go to good morning, everyone. welcome to "new day." i'm amara walker. >> good morning, amara. i'm boris sanchez. we have new video on what happened on january 6th including chilling conversation between nancy pelosi and vice president mike pence. new details about the shooting in south carolina. what we're learning about the victims and the potential charges the shooter could face. and we're going to take you inside the battle of kherson in ukraine, a fight that could be critical to the ukrainian counteroffensive. and ian's devastation on full dissplay on florida's farms. the impact that the storm is having on the state's citrus crops and the families who

depend on it. ♪ welcome to the weekend. good morning. we are so grateful to have you this saturday, october 15th. great to start it with you as well, amara. >> we're right in the middle of october. 16 days until halloween. looking forward to it. always good to be with you, too, boris. and we do have more video as boris was mentioning this morning showing the dangers faced by congressional leaders after they left the capitol building during the january 6th riots. >> and we credit the filmmaker, nancy pelosi's daughter. it's footage from fort mcnair.
4:03 am
vice president pence was on a loading dock. they discussed their personal safety with pelosi begging him to keep his location a secret. >> hi. mr. vice president, hi, yeah, we're okay. we're here with mr. schumer, mr. mcconnell, the leadership, house, and senate, and how are you? oh, my goodness. where are you? god bless you. i worry about you being in that capitol though. don't let anybody know where you are. >> we now know the real danger pence, mike pence faced that day as rioters attacked the capitol. many were chanting hang mike pence as you can hear there. and outside the building, the mob built a gallows with a noose. and in another clip we hear discussions between the former vice president and speaker
4:04 am
pelosi as they work on a contingency plan to clear the capitol and finish certifying the 2020 election. >> fort mcnair has facilities for the house and senate to meet as backup plan should they have something like this. they logistically want to bring all the members of house and senate nanyway. we're just making a judgment. we'd rather go the capitol and do it there, but it doesn't seem safe. roy do you think, mr. -- but he spoke in terms of going back to the capitol, which is what we want to do too. mitch was talking about going back to the capitol. yeah. well, we would like to go back -- that would be our hope as
4:05 am
well. the security is telling us that it's going to be a while before the capitol will be able to do that. >> the fact that these conversations had to take place. portions of these videos were used in the final public hearing before the midterm elections of the january 6th committee. the house committee used the video and new testimony to demonstrate how former president donald trump knew he had lost the election but still went forward with efforts to overturn the results. the committee also voted to subpoena the former president. in response, trump issued a 14-page letter repeating false election claims and slamming the committee, not indicating whether or not he would comply. joining me now to discuss is former federal prosecutor shan wu. i just retweeted it out for you. you say in that piece, you know,
4:06 am
the fact that the january 6th committee voted to issue trump a subpoena, that just underscores we're in a constitutional crisis. how so? >> absolutely, amara. i think there's been a lot of talk we averted that on january 6th and we certainly averted a coups on january 6th, but we didn't avert a crisis. we're already there. first of all, if you look at the state of union right now, trump really defines the stresses that can occur on the constitution because he's basically defying the usual norms, and the other branches have not been able to discipline him at this point. there are legal losses. the supreme court rejected the mar-a-lago issue. but essentially he operated outside the norms, and at this point it's up to the executive branch. one thing is the stresses and the branches not being able to
4:07 am
check the defiance. >> you also mention you have the wife of a supreme court justice, ginni thomas, who's a well-known conservative activist. we've heard her say she believes the election is stolen, yet justice clarence thomas hasn't recused himself from january 6th cases. the mechanisms in place to force him to do so. how concerned is that in itself? >> it's very concerning. when you think about it, it's the supreme court of the land, and they themselves refuse to adopt the code of judicial ethics. it seems very odd they won't do that, letting them police themselves. again, there's no check on them. there's no effective review of them. they get to decide when they have a conflict or don't have a conflict, and that just doesn't make any sense. and it certainly has undermined our trust in the court. >> and i don't mean melodramatic, you're saying the
4:08 am
fate of the democracy rests with the department of justice and the next moves they make, but sit too little too late? >> hopefully it won't be too little. it is late in the day, and a lot of that is the dilemma that the department and merrick garland find. they're look at the department looking very political the way it was turned into a political weapon under bill barr and the trump administration. but ironically that very concern may end up being a problem because try not to be political can be political in and of itself. and, really, the way to have blunted some of this, you know, partisan dilemma going on in the country, would have been to have brought charges earlier. the closer it gets to midterms, the closer it gets to trump declaring a likely candidacy again, the worse the backlash is going to be. >> how department are you that charges will be brought against
4:09 am
trump? >> i'm confident that there's certainly enough evidence to do that, and i think it's very much a matter of prosecutorial discretion at this point for ag garland weighing whether or not he wants the justice department to take this step. i think the evidence is there. i can't really predict which way they're going to go with that right now. >> shan wu, a very important conversation, thank you very much. >> good to see you. the justice department is now asking a federal appeals court to get rid of the special master in the mar-a-lago documents case. the doj says the judge who ordered the third-party review of the documents overstepped her authority. we've got details now from cnn senior justice correspondent evan perez. >> reporter: the justice department formally appealed the palm beach judge's order that appointed a third-party special master to review more than 21,000 pages of documents that were seized by the fbi in the search of donald trump's beach
4:10 am
club. in an appeal to the 11th circuit court of appeals in atlanta, federal prosecutors say that the lower court judge aileen cannon exceeded her authority by asserting herself into a criminal investigation that at this point has not produced any charges. prosecutors quote from an earlier opinion by the appeals court which said that cannon abused her discretion when she blocked federal investigators from being able to access about 100 documents marked classified. the appeals court overturned cannon on that part of a ruling, and now the prosecutors want the appeals court to go further, saying trump shouldn't be allowed to use the master process to delay it by talking about claims of privilege, writing part trump has no plausible claim to such a privilege with respect to the records-bearing classification markings or any other government

documents related to his official duties. trump's law veries have until november 10th to respond followed by another response later. the review is ongoing and is expected to be complete by mid-december. evan perez, cnn, washington. new this morning, prosecutors say the 15-year-old alleged gunman behind the mass shooting in raleigh, north carolina, will be charged as an adult amid growing calls around the country to curb gun violence. >> a few details have left what they have happened. the suspect opened fire in an unsuspecting neighborhood. cnn's ryan young has the details.
4:12 am
>> reporter: 911 calls detail the mass shootings that left five people dead in raleigh, north carolina, including a 16-year-old boy and an off-duty officer. >> an officer was shot. >> we heard some shots outside and i looked out my window, and the neighbor is on the ground, i think. >> we'll have to make sense of this infuriating and tragic act of gun violence. >> reporter: 49-year-old sue karnatz, a mother of three, also a victim. her husband writes on facebook, we had plans for growing old, always together, now those plans are laid to waste. two others were hurt in the shooting including another police officer and a 59-year-old woman who's in critical condition. >> we grieve for them today. our prayers are also with those who are injured. >> reporter: the district attorney says the 15-year-old gunman will be charged as an adult. he was taken into custody and is
4:13 am
in critical condition. police say the crime scene is extensive, covering more than two miles. there has not been a source for the attack, but the shooter was wearing camouflage, had a camouflage backpack and a long gun. a teen girl didn't want to be identified. >> having somebody do that with my age, you know, the fact that they didn't care what they were doing, it's just -- it comes to show that the world really needs to find why they're doing this. >> reporter: ryan young, cnn, raleigh, north carolina. >> when will all that gun violence end? still ahead, russia unleashes new rounds of attacks on ukraine with comekamikaze drones and missiles as ukraine fights to take back territory. ed a the midterms near, latino voters are going to play a critical role on election day.

>> nick paton walsh is in the capital of kyiv. nick, help us understand. what do they mean by kamikaze drones. >> they were purchased from iran, using the camera off it to feed back live footage of what it is they're essentially targeting, and then they throw the entire device t drone and explosive within it at that particular target. there have been numerous reports across ukraine since the first wave of attacks happened back on monday and earlier, indeed, of the drones being used. kyiv's region as well is being hit today. i should point out we're seeing less attacks per day than the horrifying way we saw monday that dragged on into tuesday. but this news comes as ukraine is on the counter-offensive as well, pushing toward further into the cher son region. we saw what the front lines liked like there just yesterday.

4:24 am
of. it's unclear what the rugs are facing around there. you heard certainly they're facing problems with supplies. there was an order given by the occupying officials in kherson that they wanted civilians to start leaving. it's unclear if that was related to their own internal management officials or they think ukrainian counter-attacks are coming. it's a lot slower. interestingly, though, russian president vladimir putin giving off different signals in kazakhstan with other heads of state talking about how the possibility of a catastrophic war would be and talking about deploiplomacy and a need for go will, a very good sign and a sign that russia is in trouble. >> the need for good will. surprising coming from putin. nick paton walsh, thank you so much.

retired air force colonel and cnn military analyst colonel cedric miller. let's talk about the newest assault. i'm curious to get your reaction. >> not surprised, boris, and good morning to you. the big thing here you're looking at is these kamikaze drones, supposedly iranian trainers are actually being deployed in the kherson or nearby regions to train the russians in the use of these drones. it's somewhat similar to the u.s. switchblade, less technically astute, but it's definitely something that can cause a lot of damage, and it's pretty hard to defend against those kinds of drones if you don't have the right equipment and jam the signals that the drones are getting.
4:26 am
>> our kevin liptak had a conversation about russia's military burn rate. i want you to lchb to what he shared with us. >> they have to make critical choices about what they do in the battlefield because they don't have the tanks they need, the helicopters and missiles they need. we're going to keep doing that as long as that continues. >> colonel, how long do you think russia's going to sustain this recent onslaught if it can't replenish its supplies? >> that may be why president putin is making the statements he's making kazzic zan. i think what you're seeing is a burn rate, if you will, of somewhere around 6,000 pieces of equipment that have been destroyed. these pieces of equipment are not replaceable by the russians because they don't have the industrial base, so i would give them, you know, depending on the
4:27 am
kind of munitions they're going to deploy, somewhere between two to three months of actually being able to sustain the war effort that they have right now and maybe not even that long. >> and the concern is that at that point, if putin runs out of conventional weapons or gets close to it, he might potentially use something more catastrophic, right. >> that's right, yes. you're looking at the so-called nbc type of weapons, nuclear or biological mechanical weapons. we talk about the nuclear weapons as the possibility and tactical nukes being within that arsenal. it's definitely a distinct possibility if he feels he's not getting his way or getting off-ramp he seems to be getting at the moment. >> this week jake tapper spoke with president biden about putin. he spoke about him not being a
4:28 am
rational actor. he speculated on that theme. i'm wondering, watching what you've seen unfold in ukraine over the last seven-plus months, potentially eight months now, what you make of the idea that he's not a rational actor. >> well, i think he's rational. putin is rational within his own context, but, you know, having said that, it's kind f like the rationality of a lot of other historical figures who have performed fairly well within the paradigm they believe, but this paradigm that putin is using is one that's based on faulty information. it's based in many ways on faulty logic and a miss misinterpretation of history. the fact that he's dealing with a lens that is not really giving him a real picture of what's going on or even giving him the right philosophical paradigm to deal with, the kinds of issues that he thinks he's facing, that
4:29 am
involves decisions that are very, very bad, and president biden said he made a strategic mistake by entering ukraine. i agree with that. i think putin really miscalculated and really did not understand the type of resistance he was getting. he believed a lot of his own press and believed his military was stronger than it really is, and his plans are certainly coming to a dramatic end in the way that they were formulated at first at least. >> yeah. hard to imagine that he expected what we just saw unfold after the invasion. colonel cedric leighton, always appreciate your time, sir. thanks. >> you bet, boris. good to be with you. and still ahead, the midterms are just weeks away, and both parties are keeping a close eye on latino voters. next, we're going to take a look at why some hispanic communities in places like texas could be a major test for republicans. before.. & bath fitter. if you have a "before" bath, nonow's the time to call bath fitter
