12:00 am
we got to cut back." they'll always have sentimental value. >> my dad says, "this is my wedding gift." >> wow. >> it is absolutely nice to share something that you love with somebody you love. you can't get any better than that. [crowing] right here onst for a news conference reveals striking new details about the gunfire death on a movie set i'm shepard smith. this is "the news" on cbs. >> obviously, it did fire a live round. >> new questions raised in the alec baldwin shooting. what the amorer told investigators, the mistake made by the assistant director and the potential for criminal charges. >> no one has been ruled out kids abandoned, one murdered and left to rot. now, charges brought against a mother and her boyfriend what police say happened inside this house of horrors.
12:01 am
car prices surging and criminals stealing cars. >> they just drove off with it, all within 45 seconds. >> what's causing the national spike in auto theft? the biden agenda hacked up paid family leave likely gone. other key provisions on the chopping block what it means for democrats and the rest of the plan left in the dark after a nor'easter imran back to the table for nuclear talks. and the u.s. issues its first x gender passport. >> live from cnbc, the facts, the truth, "the news with shepard smith. >> good evening. the assistant director who handed alec baldwin that loaded gun on the movie set admitted to investigators that he didn't check the revolver carefully enough that's just one of the new and troubling details we're learning from a search warrant released today we're finding out what key crew
12:02 am
members at the center of the deadly shooting told detectives. the assistant director and the armorer who were in charge of the prop guns for the film investigators say when they asked the armorer about live ammo on the set, she responded no live ammo is ever kept onset. but the sheriff says it appears it was a real bullet, a live round in baldwin's revolver that killed the film cinematographer. it struck her in the chest, before hitting the director behind her, the bullet lodged in his shoulder >> we have the spent shell casing from the bullet fired from the gun the actual lead projectile fired has been recovered from the shoulder of mr. souza. the facts are clear, a weapon was handed to mr. baldwin, it was functional and fired a live round, killing ms. hutchins.
12:03 am
>> and the detectives found each more suspected live round os tha - rounds on that set the district attorney says she will prosecute if there is a crime. >> reporter: in the first briefing since the deadly shooting onset, the sheriff shared his thoughts on the incident >> i think there was some complacency on this set. >> reporter: and the district attorney called it a very complex set. new court documents revealed an interview with the assistant director david halls and armorer hannah gutierrez-reed who told investigators on that day, she checked the dummies, referring to the ammunition, and assured they were not hot rounds she described locking up the firearms during a safe, but during lunch, the ammo was not secured with a long-time hollywood armorer says that goes against best
12:04 am
practices. >> ammo should not be left unintended simply not over a break like lunch. >> reporter: another potential issue, when gutierrez described handing the gun to alec baldwin a couple of times, and also handed it to david halls >> the question i have is, why an a.d. was handling the weapon. that should never happen there's no reason for an a.d. to have hands on the weapon >> reporter: he says the a.d. is supposed to be a safety check, examining a weapon held by the armorer before handed off to the actor. >> procedure would be to open the cylinder and then spin it so you can see all six cylinders were empty but had dummy rounds. >> reporter: but halls told investigators, he could only remember seeing three rounds he advised he should have checked all of them but didn't and couldn't recall if she spun the drum >> he should have checked all of them and he should have, every single
12:05 am
time there was some negligence on the set. >> reporter: investigators say alec baldwin is cooperating and has been interviewed by detectives they also spoke to a cameraman onset who said baldwin was careful around the firearms and during the filming of a different scene, he made sure a child wasn't near him when they were firing a weapon >> but there are these reports that people on the set were firing rounds with target practice before it started >> and the sheriff acknowledged those reports. he says that is something they are investigating, whether or not someone was shooting live rounds as part of target practice that morning before the accident >> vallerievalerie, thank you trial attorney jeff harris is here. jeff, they found live rounds on the set. they admitted that what does that mean legally for the people involved? what charges could potentially be on the stable >> i think everyone is in agreement there is literally no reason why you would ever have a
12:06 am
live, ballistic round on a movie set. there's just simply no explanation why that would ever happen so it's clear that if you have a live round on a movie set, it's allowed to migrate its way into an operational firearm that firearm is likely to get pointed in front of somebody those are all the kinds of things that clearly spell negligence and in typically negligence is something that occurs in the civil context, and if you have gross negligence, which is the kind of negligence that can likely to result in someone's death, that's criminal negligence and i frankly think that if you have a movie set where you've got live ammunition that's intermipgle in intermingled with dummy ammunition and fwlanks, that rises to the level of gross negligence and i do believe someone will be charged with at least criminal negligence in this case. >> according to the documents,
12:07 am
it appears alec baldwin took the assistant director at his word, that the gun was not dangerous to use does that fact, that he didn't do more to check the status of the gun, open him up to any kind of liability or no >> that's a great question if you point a gun at somebody in the real world and you accidently discharge it, and that person is injured or killed, you're going to be charged with manslaughter if they're killed, and you're going to have a negligence suit filed against you. but on a movie set, there may be reasons why you point a weapon at someone for artistic reasons. and so it's a different question so really the question here is, should alec baldwin have done something to confirm what the a.d. says to him frankly, i've heard different answers. some will say no, it's okay for alec baldwin to rely on at least the armor er or someone else tha
12:08 am
confirmed it and others would say no, part of the training he should have received is checking the weapon himself and confirm it's empty it may boil down to really a question of whether or not the actor was appropriately trained in the use of firearms that would fall on the production company and absolve him of negligence. >> jeff harris for the legal look, thank you. a key corner stone of joe biden's entire legislative agenda is now on life support at very best. sources tell nbc news, paid family leave is likely to be dropped from the reconciliation bill, as democrats strip major planks of that package to strike a deal according to sources, it's because of opposition from this man, senator joe manchin the change would be a massive blow to the president, and confirmation that he was unable to keep a key promise of his campaign but some lawmakers we're told are not giving up.
12:09 am
at this hour, there is still no vote, not even firm word of a deal on the social spending bill at all, even though democrats said they wanted to secure an agreement before the president leaves for europe. that's tomorrow. how is this possible democrats talked consistently weeks on end, paid family leave, paid family leave, you'll get it now it's apparently gone >> reporter: shep, one of the biggest proponents of that proposal is senator kristen gillibrand she said it would be devastating if this got dropped, but she told me today that she wants to speak directly to senator manchin to make her case, and another source says that house speaker nancy pelosi is also fighting to preserve this measure. and that is why the deadline for a deal keeps moving. democrats are trying to nail down exactly where each member of their caucus stands, because they were under enormous pressure from their base to get something done there was a rally today on capitol hill, where activists
12:10 am
urged lawmakers to stay focused on their priorities, like child care, green jobs they're upset that immigration isn't even part of these talks but the two senators at the center of this puzzle remain the same, kyrsten sinema and joe manchin. they met with white house officials. she said they're making progress he praised the president for working on this deal 24/7. but manchin did not sound sold on a new idea for paying for this package, and that is taxing billionaires on money they haven't even made yet. >> people in the stratosphere, we ought to be pleased this country is able to produce the wealth i don't like the connotation we're targeting different people there's people that basically have contributed to society and create a lot of jobs and invest money and give a lot to philanthropic pursuits >> reporter: he's not the only one skeptical. richard neil said that idea had not been vetted yet.
12:11 am
another democrat said he is fine taxing the rich but doesn't want to soak them pelosi announced she will be moving forward to advancing this bill to the floor. the goal is to show the president and her party that the progress is real >> thank you cnbc weather alert a monster storm barreling through louisiana and mississippi tonight. look at this video this is orange, texas, right on the louisiana border a powerful tornado ripping trees out of the ground near en interstate 10. one tornado left a trail of destruction in beaumont, texas you can see the tornado ripped the roof off this home, and flipped over an rv no injuries reported officials say the tornadoes hit about 100 homes in that area the storm system is so big, it's splitting the country in two this map shows it stretching

the commissioner roger goodell says the league promised to protect the identities of the people who cooperated. at the nfl owner's meeting today, he said, we're very conscious of making sure that we're protecting those who came forward. they were incredibly brave and open, and we respect the pain that they probably went through. all over again to come forward but some of those very people say they don't want protection, they want details. two women, formally employed by the washington football team are dedemanding that the league release its findings some of the emails uncovered have already leaked. the fallout caused jon gruden to resign as head coach of the las vegas raiders. he made derogatory comments about women and gays and people of color those prompting what other things might be in there no ticket, no i.d., just biometrics at the airport. the tsa and delta airlines

tomorrow night on the news hundreds of people in georgia showing up for jury duty in ahmaud arbery case. prosecutors say three white men chased arbery, a black man, in their trucks while he was out jogging. the men say they thought he was a burglar, and one of them shot him in self-defense. the defendants were at jury selection today, six days into the process. prosecutors and defense lawyers cqualified just 36 potential jurors the judge says they need 64 to move on. the problem, finding people who haven't developed a bias around this case. david henderson is here, cnbc contributor. david, does the defense have the upper hand here as a result? >> absolutely. they have the chance to transfer this trial to another location, knowing everybody in this town knows all about it the fact that they chose to stay here means they knew something about this process and this judge. >> is it taking longer, the
12:37 am
process than usual for a murder case >> for a murder case, absolutely even in a state like texas, most judges would give you a day, an average to pick the jury at this rate, they have to go another week, maybe two, just to have a pool big enough to start selection. >> this isn't about familiarity with the case. it's about a perceived bias that's already engrained >> that's right, shep. basically, you have to be able to sit and be fair and impartial to participate in jury service if you're the defense, you want people who identify as law and order people the tough part is, if somebody shows up for jury duty and you ask, can you follow the law despite the fact that you have opinions about this case, they're always going to say yes. another way that favors the defense. >> david, thanks a major decision by the judge in a murder trial of 18-year-old rile rittenhouse he faces felony homicide charges
12:38 am
in the death of two men, in kenosha, wisconsin last year this is the video. police say rittenhouse shot the men with an ar-15 style rifle after he crossed the state line. the shootings happened following the police shooting of jacob blake, a black man the judge in charge of the case ruled the attorneys could refer to the men that the teen shot as rioters or looters and arsonists but not as victims and not as alleged victims. david is back with us now. the judge says the term "victim" is a loaded term your thoughts? >> he made two rulings, and the way to think about this is, the first ruling was the right ruling for the wrong reason. and saying you can't refer to people as victims in a guilt, innocent phase of the law is consistent with the law. but, again, that's just the
12:39 am
first part of the problem here >> the second part has to do with what he said afterwards >> is that right, shep so the theme here should be you can't mislead the jury on the law. calling people victims in the first phase of the trial misleads the jury, because it gets past the presumption of innocence. the problem with calling people rioters, arsonists, even if you prove that, suggests to the jury -- it's just victim shaming. >> how tough is this case to prosecute? and does this change, make it even tougher >> if i was the prosecutor, this doesn't make it tougher for me, because honestly you don't want to use words that make you sound like a lawyer. you want to call people by their can names. the broader context is you have a kid out here with an assault rifle, and the police agree to him being out there, even walks by them with his hands up and
12:40 am
his assault rifle strapped across his body. details like this will make this case difficult to prosecute. >> the judge said those words like "victim" and the rest, are not normally allowed but you know, the second part has so many courtroom observers wondering if that doesn't engrain a bias >> shep, that's going to be the problem here, because the question isn't when a judge says, if you prove an arsonist, shouldn't you call them an arsonist it's when the defense uses these terms without proof whatsoever and you make it sound as though people were participating in wrongdoing, which they weren't, which will never be proved, it legitimizes wit >> david, thank you. the brazilian president

could face criminal charges related to his handling of the pandemic a senate panel recommending prosecute herbs charge ball -- balls that are -- they hold him personally responsible for half of the 600,000 deaths they have the second highest death toll in the world. the panel found the administration ignored offers for vaccines and touted unproven covid treatments the brazilian president denies any wrongdoing experts say it's unlikely he will be charged with these crimes, because his attorney general and most of the lower house support him. the iran nuclear deal might still have a chance. in a major turn around, iran announces it's coming back to the negotiating table to possibly revive the team
