12:00 am
how much is this again-- a million bucks? you know, maybe i'll just buy one of these. everybody's going to die. (sharks laugh) see you next time. "the news with shepard smith" starts now test. new tonight, the bodies of two children pulled from the collapse in florida. i'm shepard smith. this is the news on cnbc >> this is a hot verdict for us. >> bill cosby set free the disgraced former tv icon released from prison after the pennsylvania supreme court vacates his conviction for aggravated indecent assault families hurting, rescue workers still searching for survivors. >> we continue our search and
12:01 am
rescue efforts, 24/7 without stop >> the growing legal push to uncover what caused the collapse, as more bodies are pulled from the rubble criminal charges expected against the trump organization what the company faces, and why more indictments may be coming donald rumsfeld, dead at 88. the former defense secretary and original architect of the war or terror the heat wave turns deadly new documents in britney spears' court battle and toasting pride, with queer beer live from cnbc, the facts. the truth, the news with shepard smith. >> good evening. bill cosby walked free today after the supreme court of pennsylvania overturned his assault conviction, leaving his accusers stunned cameras captured cosby returning
12:02 am
to his home outside philadelphia, just hours after the ruling came out. the judges pointing to a vast violation of cosby's due process rights in the decision so what happened well, more than a decade ago, a prosecutor decided not to charge the actor. cosby agreed to testify in a civil case. and during that admitted giving quaaludes to a woman he was pursuing. that became key evidence in the subsequent criminal trial. the judges ruling that should not have been used, writing he must be discharged and any future prosecution on these particular charges must be barred we do not dispute that the remedy is both severe and rare, but it is warranted here, indeed compelled. they say he cannot be re-tried on these same charges. his attorneys said today he never should have been charged in the first place of the bill cosby came out of his house with his lawyers today, who talked to reporters there. cosby was silent but later gave an interview to a radio station.
12:03 am
>> this is for all the people who have been imprisoned wrongfully, regardless of race, color or creed >> mm-hm >> because i met them in there people who talked about what happened and what they did, and i know there are many liars out there. >> his accuser in this case, andrea constand said she is disappointed and hope it is does not discourage other women from coming forward in 2018, a jury convicted cosby of three counts of aggravated indecent assault against constand constand accused him of drugging and sexually assaulting her in his home in 2004 bill cosby has denied all accusations of wrongdoing and said his contact with constand was consensual he served three years of his three to ten-year sentence more than 60 women have accused of sexual assault.
12:04 am
and at the time the cosby conviction was considered the first major win for the #metoo movement david, where does this case go from here if anywhere? >> shep, i think the basic answer is nowhere. in theory, it could be appealed to the united states supreme court, but the supreme court's very unlikely to take this case up because it largely circles around state law so i think this is it. bill cosby's not going to face prosecution. >> likely shocking for many in the public to read on social media, it was. were you surprised >> i am surprised, because basically, the court carved out a new rule which means that when a prosecutor make as public statement that he's not going to prosecute an individual that is correct is correct, that is equivalent for a deal for immunity.
12:05 am
they didn't say bill cosby's innocent, and they clarify, this prosecutor made a deal under the table not to prosecute him because he has been sued in civil court. this is an instance where two wrongs don't make a right. >> was this a strong case for reversal, david? >> i don't think there was a strong case for reversal, shep, because i've never seen a court do this before it's legal for detectives to lie to suspects. prosecutors make misrepresentations on a regular basis trying to get convictions. i'm not saying it's right, but the time they chose to clamp down is on a victim of sexual assault. >> how rare is this for a vacated decision >> i can't think of another example quite like this off the top of my head what's important to point out is the supreme court said they had a problem with the way the evidence was used after bill cosby gave a deposition in a civil case what they could have done was said it was wrong to use that
12:06 am
evidence, so we're sending this back down for a new trial without admitting that evidence during the course of the trial that's what's surprising that it didn't happen. >> david henderson, thank you. some of bill cosby's other accusers are reacting today the rosemary connors now, she covers the trial for nbc 10 philadelphia what are the other women saying? >> well, shep, i was in that courtroom for both of cosby's trials and listened to the testimony of the accusers. it was raw the emotion was palpable and tonight many of them are sharing disappointment but making clear today's decision was not about cosby's guilt or innocence one accused cosby of drugging her when she was 19 years old and said it was a miscarriage of justice. this is about procedure, not about the truth of the women another accuser told the "new york times" she had been preparing for this possibility but was still stunned, saying,
12:07 am
quote, i'm feeling sad because this was absolutely a perceived loss on my part. many were in court avevery day, and so was gloria allred earlier today, she held a news conference slam ng >> because hming theot decision >> because he is not in jeopardy of being criminally prosecuted, he will not be able to invoke his fifth amendment privilege against self-incrimination in our case so he will be compelled to answer questions under oath in our case >> as mentioned, shep, cosby's conviction came at the height of the #metoo movement and was card major win for that movement. they say it is proof that they still have a lot of work to do
12:08 am
and that the reckoning has not gone far enough. the death toll continues to climb in surfside, florida officials have just confirmed search teams pulled two more bodies from the wreckage today, one week after the condo building came crashing down. a total of 18 people now confirmed dead the mayor of miami-dade county just revealed that the two victims are children, ages 4 and 10 147 people are still unaccounted for, and the painstaking search for possible survivors does still continue take a look at this. the concrete so pulverized searchers are using shovels to dig into the massive pile as if they're shoveling dirt or sand the fire chief says giant concrete slabs are crumbling as they try to move them with heavy machinery. crews have been working tireless think throughout the day and the night, in the dark, with headlamps in 24-hour shifts.
12:09 am
and to make matters worse, it's hurricane season now, and a tropical storm is brewing in the atlantic officials are still calling it a search and rescue operation. the mayor of the town of surfside says families have been asking whether it will turn into a recovery operation he says they told them they're not leaving anyone behind. let's bring in a rescue specialist with florida's elite special team has your team come across any large void spaces or anything that might lead you to further hope we heard something of tunnel this is morning. >> good evening. we have found some void spaces that are ranging from inches to possibly a foot, maybe a foot and a half, but unfortunately, we have not found any void spo spaces that contain live victims. >> the video up close there, it looks like there's just no
12:10 am
space. it looks like sand and rocks not like, you can't even make out that there are large pieces of concrete in some of the video, i mean, look at this,'s incredible, really >> it's true, yes. it's been very difficult there are some large pieces that we've been able to remove with heavy machinery, but the bulk of the rubble pile is crumbled. it was, as everyone's been listening, a pancake collapse, which technically means that there's floor over ceiling over floor over ceiling, and the interior walls tend to just pulverize, making it very difficult to search in the rubble >> your business is communication through the department, and i know the last thing you want to do is miscommunicate or communicate inaccurately, how do you manage the thought process on the messaging for these families now? >> we do it by just considering the families first and foremost. this is what we're here to do, even the rescuers.
12:11 am
our mission here is to try to bring some peace and some closure to these families. so everything we do is with them in the forefront of our thoughts, because any one of us could easily picture ourselves being the ones involved and exactly how we would want tois e we all work. and it's bee be rt wrenching. >> maggie, i know you are trying treat ♪ h tr treated is how we want to be treated. >> things you are finding came out of the apartments. can you give us an idea about what you have been able to deliver in the way of mementos >> i'm not 100% sure that we've been able to deliver anything to the families yet, but we are finding a lot of personal effects such as pictures, identifications, passports we've unfortunately also found a lot of toys, car seats everything that the team finds on the rubble we immediately mark with gps.
12:12 am
we then proceed to give that to the police department. they have an evidence storage unit where they are saving all these precious items so at some point we can make sure that every family member gets all of these precious memories back to them >> maggie castro, to those who toil in and around the pile, thank you, thank you so much >> thank you in less than 24 hour, criminal charges are expected to hit the trump organization the impact on the former president's business and what you could see tomorrow the house votes to create a special select committee to investigate the january 6 attack on the capitol the two republicans who joined democrats in the vote to jump start the investigation. and, as the wildfire season officially begins, president biden moves to give federal firefighters a pay raise the facts, the truth, the news with shepard smith, back in 60 seconds

prosecutor prosecutors set to file tax-related criminal charges against the trump organization tomorrow that's what two representatives of the trump organization tell nbc news the "wall street journal" reports the company's chief financial officer, alan weisselberg will also be charged. cnbc has not confirmed that reporting. the manhattan district attorney's office has been investigating the trump organization for more than two years. recently, it's been looking into specifically whether alan weisselberg and his son who also works for the company avoided paying taxes on things like cars and apartments a lawyer said the charges are absolutely outrageous and politically motivated. the lawyer also said former president trump will not be charged tomorrow the former president has denounced the investigation as a
12:15 am
witch hunt and called cy vance rude and nasty what is the company facing here? >> when you charge ha coa compa, you're not going to show up on fifth avenue and put handcuffs around one of his buildings or businesses what happens with respect to his relationship with banks and vendors and employees. do employees want to work in an organization that has been criminally charged by the manhattan district attorney. those are key questions going forward, as we know, this is an ongoing investigation as to whether there's bank fraud involved in this by the trump organization so i think the question's going to be is if there was bank fraud, and if that's something that is eventually charged
12:16 am
it remains to be seen, chshep >> the charges do not mean the investigation is over, right far from it. >> that's exactly correct. three or four months ago if you had told me they are charging the trump organization, i would have said that's probably going to be the end of the investigation, it appears that that calculus has changed. now they're going strictly for the trump organization and alan weisselberg they're trying to put pressure on weisselberg and the trump organization first there's a whole trove of documents here that we have no idea what they say, that's trump's tax returns and more importantly the underlying documents that support them. i think this investigation, given the volume of paperwork involved with t git, is far fro over >> tom winter, thank you the house of representatives voted today to form a special
12:17 am
committee to investigate the january 6 attack on the capitol. the vote was 222-190 all democrats voted in favor and joining them, just two republicans. representatives liz cheney and adam kinzinger they will have subpoena power and making recommendations on how to prevent any future attack speaker pelosi moved forward after an effort to create an independent bipartisan committee failed in the senate last month. this special select committee will have 13 members, eight chosen by the house speaker, five by the republican leader kevin mccarthy, though speaker pelosi will have veto power. the big question now is who they'll choose that will have significant influence over the direction of the committee. speaker pelosi has remained open to appointing republicans, she said and has not ruled out we're told naming someone like liz

12:31 am
especially in ones with very low vaccination rates. australia, south africa and germany have reimposed lockdowns and safety measures and japan is considering doing the same ahead of the summer olympics in tokyo. in a moment, meg tirs variant.r, but first to dr. murthy. there's a lot of confusion over this delta variant and the spread in this country you said you're concerned about it when it comes to the unvaccinated, but what about people who are vaccinated? >> well, shep, it's a great question, and i'm concerned about the delta variant. it has proven to be far more transmissible. the good news is that if you are vaccinated, you have a high degree of protection, particularly against hospitalizations and deaths. that's the good news the bad news is if you are not
12:32 am
vaccinated you are at significant risk so that is why i am urging people to get vaccinated as quickly as you can it's the safest way to keep yourself, your family and your community safe from this virus >> the mrna tests have come back very good against the delta variant. what do we know about those who've taken johnson & johnson shots? should they continue to wear masks with delta spreading >> what we know, shep, yes, the mrna vaccine has demonstrated that it has a high degree of efficacy, about 88% in protecting people against covid-19 if they get both doses. in the study they found that people who only got one dose had a markedly lower level of protection as far as johnson & johnson, we're still awaiting direct studies. we have reason to be hopeful the j&j vaccine has proven to be quite effective against preventing hospitalizations and deaths but all the variants we've seen
12:33 am
to date. the astrazeneca vaccine, can you think of it as a cousin. it's quite effective at preventing hospitalizations and death against the delta variant. more data to come but reason to be hopeful that you are well-protected if you've had the j&j vaccine. officials at the world health organization and some in the united states are asking the vaccinated to wear maxsks indoors. should they? >> here's what the science tells us if you are fully vaccinated, your chances of getting sick with covid or transmitting it to others is low. it's a low risk. now, it's, nothing is zero risk. and there are some people who may decide they're in an area that has a high degree of viral transmission, or if they are living at home with someone unvaccinated that they may want to wear a mask, that's okay. the cdc and guidance is giving
12:34 am
people flexibility and choice but wanted people to know if you are fully vaccinated your risk of getting this virus or passing it on is low, which is why it's said masks are not required indoors or outdoors if you're fully vaccinated >> doctor, thank you so much for your time and for your service >> thank you so much, shep, take care and stay safe >> thank you covid cases in tokyo are rising yet again much less than a month before the city is set to host the olympics tokyo reported more than 700 new cases just today that's the highest single-day increase there in five weeks so far, only about 12% o govern that they're imposing tougher rules on, both, athletes and staff traveling from countries where the delta variant is spreading. but that's not the only way organizers are planning to try to keep the games safe here is cnbc senior health and science correspondent, meg

terrel tirrell. >> reporter: since 1896, the olympic games have been a symbol of the world coming together, now as tokyo prepares to welcome athletes from 200 countries they serve as a test of preparedness against a virus that shut the world and the games down >> we are getting this virus under control. the games will be a good beacon that that can happen >> dr. mccloskey leads a committee on covid safety. with warnings mounting about the risk the games pose to japan and the world, he detailed what measures will be in place. for athletes, extensive testing, twice before they leave their home countries, then upon arrival at the airport in tokyo. when they arrive at the olympic village and every day until they go home. >> that level of testing is what we think will raise substantially reduce the risk of
12:36 am
a superspreader event during the game >> he acknowledges there will be cases and contract tracing will be done. as for spectators, they'll only be from japan and limited to 50% of a venue's capacity, still, some doctors say more should be done, like banning spectators completely, testing everyone on site three time as day and updating ventilation systems to address the spread through the air. >> we are concerned this could be a superspreading event or a mega spreading event, and we could see the variants mixing to create new variants that are then taken home to every single country, to more than 200 countries to unvaccinated, unprotected populations. if we wanted to create a kind of passive biological weapon, this is how you would do it >> dr. mccloskey tells us they have upgraded some ventilation
12:37 am
systems. you may be wondering how vaccines play a role here. he tells us they didn't make vaccines a key part of the plan, because they knew they wouldn't be available equally around the world. nonetheless, pfizer and biontech donated vaccines for the participants it is offered to all volunteers. >> for more on what to expect, our olympic's daytime anchor these games are going to be really different how are the athletes preparing for both covid protocolsand th competition? >> it's going to be a chal, sheppard, isn't it it's something they've never experienced before some of the athletes experiencing olympics in reio o london if the dining hall now has to

12:41 am
scene. >> buildings are not supposed to suddenly turn into rubble, absent negligent or wrongful conduct. >> reporter: brad stone, an attorney representing at least 20 residents from the champlain towers building collapse filed a suit mere hours after first responders began to rescue those they could documents suggest this could turn into an ugly finger-pointing battle raising the question who should have sounded the alarm the loudest about the building's deteriorating condition. as recently as april 2021 a letter written by the president of the condo board association laid out reasons for the costly repairs climbing to $15 million in the two and a half years since the building was first examined in it, she warned the original scope of work in the 2018 report has expanded the concrete deterioration is accelerating the roof situation got much worse, so extensive roof repairs had to be incorporated the review put the estimated
12:42 am
cost at $9 million and noted evidence of major structural damage to the concrete slab below the pool deck. pictures captured what he called abundant cracking in columns, beams and walls and warned that failure to replace waterproofing would cause the deterioration to expand exponentially most of the deterioration needs to be repaired in a timely fashion. but a month later, minutes from a 2018 board meeting, states that the engineer's report was reviewed and board members told it appears the building is in very good shape. but prieto says he doesn't remember getting the report. it wasn't until last year when he was brought back to once again review the issues and repair work was finally scheduled to begin the roof was in the early stages of the construction when the building gave way last week. >> the complaint, which is the first filing in a lawsuit talks about what the building
12:43 am
association knew or should have known. it also talks about a legal concept that basically say this is thing speaks for itself >> reporter: spokesperson for the condo association says even though they can't comment on the pending lawsuits they remind us that those members of the board are residents themself whose are still dealing with the loss of neighbors and friends, and in fact one member of the board is among those unaccounted for, aside from who may be at fault the question remains how exactly this happened. late today the national institute of standards and technology announced they will conduct a full technical c well, if you arehest, b investigation, but that could take years if you're tired of getting phone calls about the car warranty you don't have or student loan you didn't take out, i have good news. it's about to get harder for
