police responded to a call of shots fired found the rv blaring a recorded warning to evacuate that it would explode in 15 minutes. and then to begin counting down the minutes. the explosion destroyed dozens of buildings and disrupted cell phone service in several states. three people hospitalized in stable condition but many more lives could've been lost if not for the six brave nashville police officers who immediately evacuated nearby civilians. authorities about 30 miles away in lebanon tennessee are searching a suspicious box truck parked at a stripmall playing audio similar to what was blaring from the rv and nashville. they detained the truck driver and appears to be no threat, it is not clear if this is related to the nashville explosion. charles watson is live in nashville right now please enter. >> authorities confirming the suspect in this case anthony warner was killed in the rv explosion and they also say they have been able to positively
3:02 pm
matches dna to the human remains that were found at the massive explosion site, police say this initially kicked off after they recovered a vehicle identification number from the site of the explosion and use that to find a vehicle that was registered to the 63-year-old suspect, once they knew a name officials say they were able to positively identify warner by the remains in the personal belongings and dna of relatives. >> tennessee bureau of investigation as well as the fbi laboratory in virginia completed their dna testing of a sample of human remains recovered at the scene. those results were consistent with the suspect identified by u.s. attorney cochran. >> right now authorities say they have no reason to believe any other individual were involved in this massive explosion, police are looking at the suspects activity online and
3:03 pm

3:04 pm
600 - $2000, is expected on the floor tomorrow and contingent on president trump signing the massive combination covid relief government funding bill. he has refused to do so unless congress boosts those checks which republican lawmakers generally have opposed. all this as enhanced unemployment coverage for millions ran out last night, fox team coverage, jacqui heinrich in wilmington, delaware with president-elect biden's reaction but first mark meredith live in west palm beach, florida near the mar-a-lago a state where the president is spending the holidays. >> in evening, president trump is not tipping his hand whether he will sign or veto the massive package. but tonight lawmakers appear to be more frustrated with all the confusion, we have not seen the president speak with reporters since he arrived in south florida on wednesday night but he has been reaching out to lawmakers on twitter telling them what he wants them to do
3:05 pm
writing $2000 plus $2000 plus other family members not 600, remember it was china's fault, this is a tweet from the president, congressional democrats are saying they're willing to increase payments but the house will vote on that tomorrow. the government faces a potential shutdown tomorrow night and hansen appointment benefits lasted on saturday in an eviction moratorium will expire this week. a bipartisan group of 11 lawmakers are sending a direct message to the president and the letter they released today, they pleaded with him to make a decision, never before in your personal, professional or political life have you been characterized as the man of action, now is not the time to sit idly by, please do the right thing and sign or veto this bill immediately. pennsylvania senator pat toomey republican does not support increasing the stimulus payment but he is calling on the president to take the deal right in front of him. >> i understand he was to be remembered for advocating for big checks but the danger he
3:06 pm
will be remembered for chaos and misery and erratic behavior if he allows this to expire. i think the best thing to do as i say, sign this and then make the case for subsequent legislation. >> we see the president continue to criticize republicans over the last few days claiming they're not doing enough to change the outcome from november and the president tweeted moments ago about a rally in georgia ahead of the senate runoff early next month, the president is expected to remain in south florida through this week and will see if that changes as ago she asian's continue on capitol hill. jon: mark meredith live in west palm beach. president-elect joe biden is calling on president trump to sign bipartisan covid-19 relief bill, he warns any further delay will have devastating consequences for americans. jacqui heinrich live in wilmington, delaware with more on that. >> good evening john the president-elect urge president trump to sign the bill passed by
3:07 pm
congress calling it an evocation of responsibility with devastating consequences, joe biden wrote in november the american people spoke clearly that now is the time for bipartisan action and compromise and it was hard to see members of congress he that message and reach across the aisle and work together. president trump should join them and make sure millions of americans put food on the table and keep a roof over their head this holiday season. biden called a down payment on more action needed next year saying the passage is critical to retain unappointed benefits for 10 million americans and resources for small businesses while extending government funding for vital services like the military, biden pushes for economic relief from the pandemic, vice president like kamala harris is urging the public health guidelines to bring down virus cases preaching tweeted it took over nine months for california to pass 1 million coronavirus cases, we had 2 million cases two weeks later, please do your part to reduce the spread of the virus, every hospital and healthcare worker
3:08 pm
is counting on us. biden had no public event this holiday weekend but transition is at work with cabinet nominees, bernie sanders said today biden has so far fallen short on establishing a coalition cabinet the republicans are working to keep biden's pick the middle of the lane. >> the progressive movement is probably 35 or 40% of the democratic coalition and i believe the progressive movement deserves, seats in the candidate that have not happened. >> your previous guests would probably like them to move more to the left but i been pushing to try to keep them in a more moderate place where he is willing to reach across the aisle and work together with republicans. >> there are three remaining cabinet positions left to fill but to cabinet level positions that are still open, biden is more than two weeks late on his
3:09 pm
self-imposed deadline to pick his nominee for attorney general. >> jacqui heinrich in wilmington, delaware keep it and i on the president-elect. thank you. jon: tomorrow, house lawmakers will vote to override president trump's veto of the 740 billion-dollar defense bill, he is calling for changes to section 230 of the communications decency act which grants social media community for content posted by users. kt mcfarland is president trump's former deputy national security advisor, also the author of revolution trump, washington and we the people. kt, i mentioned section 230 is from the communications decency act, the national defense authorization act is what the president has vetoed, what does one have to do with the other? >> there is a thing in washington and it's called a christmas tree a gestation and a christmas tree legislation is
3:10 pm
wind every congressman and senator puts his ornament on the tree it's his blackmail, his pride, i want this for my constituents or my special interest group. that is one of the reasons president trump is vetoing this, there's a lot of stuff that has nothing to do with what it's supposed to do whether the defense department or give relief to the american citizens. i think he is right to do it but there's a particular part which is even more sinister i think which is the social media, big giant liability protection. jon: he warned in early december that he would veto the bill if there was not some kind of change to section 230 but a lot of observers think it's because the president is angry at twitter and the other social media companies that it been giving him a hard time. >> i think they're two separate things, i think the problem with this is what big tech has done in social media, they serve on one hand, they let their platforms be used by russia,
3:11 pm
chinese disinformation to show dissent and destruction within the american society and on the other hand they use their ability of censorship not to censor the russians or the chinese but to censor conservatives. they are playing politics at exactly the wrong way, what they should do is not censor american political conversations and they should censor or get involved with other countries are trying to abuse our freedom of press and freedom of speech to screw up our political conversation. jon: adam king's anger is congressman from illinois, you know him well i'm sure, he is an air force veteran, part of the president's party and he thinks the veto is a huge mistake. >> this is something that we have done for 50 some straight years, it was vetoed for nonsensical reasons, the section 230 which has nothing to do with national defense or the nda,
3:12 pm
somebody has got to the president and convinced and this is a great deal under bill goes after china and russia into shore up our cyber defenses as we've seen are extremely want to borrow to sustain the president's veto after he voted for this bill i still understand. jon: the fact of the matter is, there are enough votes already, this passed overwhelmingly in the house and senate, it only takes a 23rd majority to override the presidential veto and they already seem to have those numbers, isn't the president tilting the windmill? >> i think it's an important point to make, every president is blamed when he doesn't veto the christmas tree bills. president trump is in a unique position, he's not running for reelection, his election is over he will only be in office a couple more weeks, why not take a principal stance, i think it is right, there is very good cyber defense money and very good money to defend against china and to defend against
3:13 pm
russia, there is a lot of junk in there that does not belong, i think the president is oddly enough despite what the codex a i think he's taken a principal stance particular he of what you just said, he knows legislation will pass. jon: let's talk about what he accomplished overseas during the past four years in the a compliment are significant, we can put some on the screen right now the usmca trade deal, signing the phase i china trade deal and declaring beijing a currency manipulator, three american detainees were freed from north korea, american pastor andrew got out of nearly two years of detention in turk turkey, the peace agreement in the middle east in which morocco, bahrain, the ua and sit on have not recognized israel and began to normalize relations in the death of isis leader al-baghdadi and the u.s. taliban agreement to begin reducing
3:14 pm
hostility in america's longest war, it is a significant list, how are historians going to judge the trump foreign policy and should president biden continue down the same path? >> in the middle east particularly, this is a significant achievement, we really don't even know how good this is more and more countries are joining, it's the first peace agreement between israel and arabs and not just ten or 20, it's a couple of thousand. what it has done what president trump has done if everybody was paying attention elsewhere, he was able to craft an agreement and convinced the arabs that their only prosperity platform, the only way they could get peace and prosperity was by having a peace agreement with israel, israel and the arab states that are really united so they see potentially abide in a administration going into enabe iran to have nuclear weapons,
3:15 pm
enable iran to support nuclear, i think he put in place abraham which i don't think even the biden a administration gets through that one. the other thing that is significant his approach to china, he stood up to china, nobody stood up to china, china has a no secret that they plan to replace the united states as a dominant power in the world and rewrite the rules of order to favor them at our expense and president trump was the only political leader to stand up to china, i hope the biden a administration continues, i don't think they will but it will be a darn shame if they go back to the china first policy by jettisoning america first. >> joe biden has said china is essentially not our enemy, they are not bad folks. >> yeah, he ought to go read what the old leadership is saying, the united states days
3:16 pm
are over, china plans to take over the worldwide communication network by building the internet infrastructure of the future, the 5g network china plans to push the united states out of the south china sea the world's most important maritime trade group, china plans to beg, borrow, steal whatever they have to do to be the technology kingpin of the world of all the world's critical technology and then they make no secret of the fact that they will rewrite the rules, china is when you be in charge, everybody else in the world has to fall in line or else china will use warrior diplomacy, they are ruthless on how they will pursue their own special interest, if joe biden think that is fine, i think is making a big mistake in particular concerned because i think his family has business relationships with china and the chinese government for way too long and way too deep. jon: given what we know about hunter biden's business dealings over there which may involve
3:17 pm
payments to joe biden, do you really expect joe biden is going to be tough on china? >> joe biden could have been tough on china and could've stood up to china ten or 20 years ago it would've been easy, it would've been so easy to force reciprocal relationships and equal trade agreements but he never did, now it is hard, china is in a position to really put the screws to every country but particular to the united states. do we really think that joe biden who did not taken seriously when it would've been easy will taken seriously now when it's hard for tickly when his family has financial interest with the chinese leadership? jon: it is going to be something to watch as the new administration takes over beginning january 20, kt mcfarland, thank you very much. >> thank you. jon: california business owners feeling the pinch from the

3:32 pm
this is agents sift through evidence of the crime scene in the city downtown. >> based on the evidence that we gathered at this point, we come to the conclusion that an individual named anthony warner is the bomber. and he was present when the bomb went off and he perished in the bombing. right now were looking at any and all possible motives were not in a position where we can speculate now, were interviewing individuals that we identified that are known to the suspect. jon: david spunt takes us through what authorities have learned so far. >> yesterday fbi agents armed with a search warrant combed her warner's home in the nashville suburb of antioch tennessee, neighbor say up until a few days ago and rv sat in warner's driveway and authorities believe that was the rv seen in downtown nashville christmas morning before it exploded, at this
3:33 pm
point officials believe warner was killed in the blast and the rv exploded after recorded warning told people to evacuate the area within 15 minutes and something unusual for the crimes reporting to bomb experts, this morning the national police chief said those anxious about visiting the city. >> we feel nashville is safe, there are no known threats to the city at this time. >> even though authorities named warner as a suspect, they're still looking for information. if you have any call the national police department or the fbi, you can name anonymous. jon: david spunt at the justice department. thank you. the fbi haverhill analysis team in virginia is helping in the nashville bombing investigation trying to figure out the suspects motive. joining us now danny colson former fbi assistant director and commander of the fbi hostage rescue team. when i heard about this bombing i was reminded immediately of
3:34 pm
the oklahoma city bombing and it's my understanding you are one of the commanders on the scene there, are there similarities? >> yes, the case was solved by components of the vehicle, that is how they got to make they trace the vin number from the truck that he used, same thing happened here, the vehicle becomes a key to the investigation and a habit exactly the same way in this case. jon: timothy mcveigh set out to kill as many people as possible did not care there was a daycare center in the building, this guy apparently took pains to try to not kill people, he played the weird recording telling people to clear out of the area that there would be an explosion of 15 minutes in the timer went on down, have you ever heard of something like this? >> no, i am not, when i first heard about it on fox i thought at this time in the day i was just in the neighborhood two
3:35 pm
weeks ago with my wife in the same location or area and i was thinking christmas day, this time a day they were not trying to kill people or he was not, he was trying to make a statement, i don't know what the statement is yet but he did not want to kill anybody put the recording out and self detonated it. it was not a high for tally operation with mcveigh, he was trying to kill as many as he could, this man was not, it will be interesting to see what we get from the investigation of the fbi and the analysis done by the science unit. jon: we mentioned the behavioral science unit is taking a look at this and authorities are asking anybody who knew this guy or knew of his actions come forward with any information they might have as to motives. listen. >> we are interviewing individuals that we identified that are known to the suspect, we are asking the public if they know him or spoken to him or
3:36 pm
know his ideology and might've motivated him. jon: how important is it to figure out what the motive is and that seems like a silly question but he is gone and you know apparently there is no other threat to the city, why is motive important? >> what was his philosophy, a lot of that is going to come from his computer, what was his history of searches, did he leave a manifesto, notes but was he in chat rooms, was he talking to other people, knowing his motive and some clue about 70 us wanted to be a copycat, this is important to know and the fbi will work just as hard in this aspect of it as they did on trying to find out who did it, it's very important that we know this and it could be very viable in the future. jon: federal authorities and police are saying that they would like the public's help in
3:37 pm
knowing whether anybody else might've been involved, here is that. >> the pbi confirmed a match of the dna at both locations belonging to the person of interest in this case. >> there is no indication presently that anyone else was involved in this crime. jon: no indication anyone else was involved, that is welcome news to the residents of nashville and the whole country, when you heard about a bombing on christmas morning, immediately some kind of massive terror attack seemed possible and now this seems to be a very small isolated event that rocked in entire city, the fact that there's only one guy involved and he took his own life in the process, i suppose that is a great relief to authorities. >> exactly when we arrested timothy mcveigh we did not know what we had we didn't know if it
3:38 pm
was a conspiracy, more bombings or whatever, at least they have the knowledge probably no one else involved, but there may be some people out there from a bar he visited or club that he went to that he talks about, they may not of figured out that he was going to do it but they may give us some inkling into what is motive may have been or what is philosophy, why do you do this, you don't just get up in the morning and decide to blow up a bomb in downtown nashville, there's a precursor situation that is in his head and that's important to know. jon: we know he was nit expert he worked in the it field or the technology field but there's a lot of technology people who don't know how to build bombs, where does he get the information. >> off the internet. that's where it all comes from, he's good at technology, you and i can go on the internet tonight and we could build a bomb tomorrow, and it's in great detail and unfortunately we don't censor that and that's where people will get their ideas to get the ability to
3:39 pm
build them based off what they get off the internet. it's all of the play. jon: scary stuff, danny colson former fbi director assistant director who is one of the commanders of the oklahoma city bombing. thank you. >> thank you, i enjoyed it, happy new year. jon: happy new year to you. israel and another coronavirus lockdown and it continues to deal with the rising cases, as a new strain of the virus found in the united kingdom has appeared in canada. a trip around the globe next. honey? yeah? i respect that. but that cough looks pretty bad... try this new robitussin honey severe. the real honey you love... plus, the powerful cough relief you need. mind if i root through your trash? new robitussin honey severe. strong relief for your severe symptoms. we're portuguese? i thought we were hungarian. can you tell me that story again? behind every question is a story waiting to be discovered. this holiday, start the journey with a dna kit from ancestry.
