6:26 pm
project could still still finish well before 2030. up next at 6:30, lashing out at democrats, president trump responds to the impeachment inquiry over his phone call with ukraine's president. plus -- >> what if you could stop mass murderers before they kill? maybe we can. i'm senior investigative reporter begad sheban. we investigate the mind of a murder, next.

6:30 pm
york. >> normally push me, yes. >> in other words, no pressure. because you know what? there was no pressure. >> reporter: and after resistance from the white house, the whistle-blower's complaint about the phone call was released to congress and reviewed by members of the house intelligence committee. today the white house released its official account of that phone call. the notes show immediately after president zelensky said he wanted to buy american missiles, president trump said, quote, i would like you to do us a favor, though, and went on to make a series of requests, including ukraine's help investigating former vice president joe biden and his son hunter, who used to work for a lucrative gas drilling company in ukraine. >> this is how a mafia boss talks. what have you done for us? we've done so much for you, but there is not much reciprocity. >> reporter: the noteses also show the president repeatedly urged president zelensky to coordinate the investigation with attorney general william barr and his personal attorney rudy giuliani.
6:31 pm
>> if the president gets away with this, i'm not sure what checks and balances remain. >> reporter: republicans leading the same words, but seeing no wrongdoing. >> from my point of view, to impeach any president over a phone call like this would be insane. >> it turned out to be a nothing call. >> reporter: a call that makes him only the fourth president in history to face a threat of impeachment. the whistle-blower could meet with lawmakers as soon as tomorrow. also tomorrow, the director of national intelligence is sc leaders about his handling of the whistle-blower complaint. terry? >> janelle, thank you. ready to fight for endangered species, california's teenage up with 17 other states to battle president trump's proposal to tear apart the endangered species act. state attorney general xavier becerra held a news conference today at the bypass wildlife area up in davis. he says 18 states now suing the trump administration so the federal government cannot roll back regulations that protect endangered species. >> we don't challenge these actions because we want to pick

6:33 pm
seven people gunned down last month in odessa, texas. 22 people shot and killed just a few weeks earlier at a walmart in el paso. here in california, three people, including two children, died in a mass shooting at the gilroy garlic festival in late july. more than n thu.s. each year. now two scientists, one in palo alto, another in albuquerque, new mexico believe they can stop the killers before they pull the trigger. >> you can intervene, you could perhaps avoid the dire consequences. >> reporter: dr. hans vogel is the director of neuropathology at stanford university. is there a specific part of the brain that actually triggers a mass shooter to act? >> i think we're getting -- getting there in terms of finding areas of the brain that
6:34 pm
may explain homicidal behavior. >> reporter: at stanford university, on the second floor of a research lab, behind this door and inside a locked cabinet is some of dr. vogel's most infamous work. inside is the brain belonging to stephen paddock. he was the gunman in that las vegas mass shooting two years ago that left 58 people dead. >> i was asked to diagnosis and rule out certain disease processes that might have contributed to his behavior. >> reporter: and so they leaned on you to determine whether something in his brain may have led him to commit that act of violence? >> yes. >> reporter: whoo what did you find? >> he took his own life with a bullet wound to the back of the brain, but it still left a considerable amount of the brain that was amenable to examination. >> reporter: in the shooter's brain, vogel found large amounts of what could be described as a type of scarring of the brain
6:35 pm
tissue. diseases like alzheimer's and parkinson's can cause that, but pinpointing exactly how or even why it forms remains a mystery in modern medicine. >> the quasi scarring process in the brain was higher than the average 60 something-year-old male, yes. but the significance of it is totally unknown. >> reporter: so whether or not it could have played a role in his behavior that day, we don't know? >> don't know. >> reporter: that sort of scarring was spotted on parts of the brain responsible for fear areas of the brain. >> it's linked to parts of the brain that had to do with emotion and anger and so forth. >> reporter: and decision making? >> and decision making, yes. the frontal lobes are very interesting, and they're very complex in humans because they involve a balance between restraint and initiative. >> reporter: more than a thousand miles away in new mexico, cutting edge research inside prisons is revealing even
6:36 pm
more about the minds of murderers. >> for such a big problem, it's really surprising that this is the first study of its kind. >> reporter: dr. kent kiel specializes in studying psychopaths. he is a neuroscientist and psychologist. he and his team designed a mobile brain scanner and drove it across the u.s. to study inmates at ten decade, he has conducted mri scans of nearly a thousand prisoners in order to examine the brain differences of killers versus nonkillers. >> there are regions of the brain in individuals that committed homicide that truly are different. >> reporter: he and his research team found the brains of killers are wired differently. specific sections of the brain responsible for controlling emotions, impulse, and social awareness are less developed among those who have taken a life. >> we're finding for the first time that they are quite different. now it's a question of how did they get that way, how might we
6:37 pm
understand this information. >> reporter: kiehl says medicine or therapy can physically transform the brain to reduce the risk of dangerous behavior. >> we're going to try to imp. treatments that we know work on those systems of the brain, then we would hopefully see changes that would then prevent these types of things from ever happening. >> reporter: kiehl believes some people are born with those brain differences. and while that doesn't necessarily mean they'll commit murder, he says his research reveals some strong connections. understanding who might be even literally changing people's minds. dr. kiehl is already getting requests from parents around the country who want their kids tested for potentially violent behavior. the scans and analysis run about $10,000 per child. now this type of examination does raise some ethical question, but it could very well be years before this kind of testing becomes widely available here in our area or at other medical centers across the country. back to you.
