are you a christian author with a book that you're ready to share with the world? get published now, call for your free publisher kit today! welcome to all of you watching us here in the united states, canada and around the world. i'm kim brunhuber. ahead, criminal charges against the trump organization and its cfo are expected to be unsealed in just hours from now. what are the likely charges and what does it mean for former president trump. plus -- >> mr. cosby can celebrate tonight but this will continue. >> bill cosby's accusers vow to continue their legal fight after
1:01 am
he is freed from prison. why the pennsylvania supreme court threw out his sexual assault conviction. and later, prince william and harry will unveil a statue honoring their mother, princess di diana. we're live for their closely watched reunion. in a matter of hours criminal indictments against donald trump's family business and one of its top executives are due to be unsealed. we don't know the specific charges yet, but sources say they are related to fringe benefits the trump organization gave to employees and whether taxes should have been paid on them. paula reid has details. >> reporter: a grand jury has returned charges against the trump organization and allen weisselberg.
1:02 am
they are expected to contain allegations that both the company and employees likewise weisselberg didn't properly did crow perks doled out and did not pay proper taxes. the allegations here really stem from alleged tax crimes. it is very unusual to charge a company criminally for not paying taxes on company perks, especially because so many employees at different companies receive these kinds of perks. when it comes to private school tuition, weisselberg may have a difficult time defending that as opposed to a free apartment or a car service. but we know that new york prosecutors have been engaging in a pressure campaign on mr. weisselberg to get him to cooperate, to get him to flip on his former boss, former president trump. now, at this point there is no indication that the former president or any member of his family will be charged. but we know that this investigation is active and
1:03 am
ongoing. we expect that there will be court proceedings later this afternoon, but after that, this investigation continues, prosecutors will continue to press mr. weisselberg to cooperate. he has made it pretty clear he doesn't intend to do that, but sometimes after criminal charges are filed, people change their mind depending on the strength of the evidence. we know prosecutors are also scrutinizing other trump organization executives including a long time trump executive matthew calamari and his son. again, at this point no indication that the former president or any member of his family will be charged, but this investigation will continue of a it are today. >> that is paula reid reporting there. weisselberg is expected to surrender to authorities in the coming hours and formally charged later in the day. legal analysts say the former president is safe from prosecution for now. >> if you are donald trump, this is a good news/bad news situation. the bad news is that your company is about to get
1:04 am
indicted, the company that bears your name. that means that they will have a long expensive difficult legal battle and if convicted, it means that they could pay major fines, restitution and even could spend the end of the trump org. the good news if you are donald trump you are not going to jail. no individual acan go to skral ba b jail based on indictment of a cooperation. and i think that you could conclude that prosecutors don't have enough or not ready to indict donald trump individually. >> there is no modern precedent for this. there have been some allegations about the business dealings of former presidents of both parties. but we've never seen an event like this again. the opening salvo prosecutors have reportedly made clear that they will continue to investigate and that means that donald trump is at substantial
1:05 am
risk, including if mr. weisselberg decides that the possible prospect of jail time isn't appealing to him and cooperates with prosecutors. >> trump lashed out at the prosecutors saying the investigation led by two democrats is political wly motivated. bill cosby is waking up this morning a free man for the first time in nearly three years. his sexual assault conviction was overturned by the pennsylvania supreme court wednesday, the court rule being saying that he was unfairly prosecuted. cosby thanked his supporters in a tweet saying he's always maintained his innocence. here is what he had to say after his release. >> did you ever think this day would come and sooner than most expected? >> yes. i don't know if you've ever seen
1:06 am
the special on the fellow who shot martin luther king. there is an interview with the chief of police, and he says a guilty person knows more than anybody. well, i'm not guilty. >> many of cosby's accusers say that they are outraged by the ruling. one attorney representing several of the women called it a slap in the face. more now from jason carroll. >> reporter: walking free, bill cosby leaving prison after pennsylvania's highest court vacated his conviction. >> he said his heart was racing, he couldn't believe it. >> reporter: the 83-year-old now home after being released this afternoon. the court deciding that prosecutors violated his due
1:07 am
process writes writing the subsequent decision by d.a. to prosecute cosby violated due process rights. he must be itdischarged and any future prosecution must be barred. according to the court, he was originally promised immunity if he testified in a different case but then a decade later the prosecutor used the testimony against him in a criminal trial. >> we didn't think that he treated fairly and the system has to be fair. and fortunately the supreme court agreed with us. >> reporter: in 2018, kospi was sentenced to three to 10 years in state prison for drugging and sexually assaulting andrea c constad. he has long taught for his release denied appeal in 2019 and denied parole just last month. this was the first high profile
1:08 am
celebrity case in the me too era. and his release dealing a below to the multiple woman who accused him of sexual assault, a lawyer for three of the accusers tweeting he is not released because he is nchbt. he innocent. he is released because a prosecutor promised him years ago that he would not be brought to just. the woman at the center of the criminal case and her lawyers releasing a statement saying in part today's majority decision regarding bill cosby is not only disappointing but of concern. despite the ultimate outcome which resulted from a procedural technicality and we urge all victims to have their voices heard. but cosby does have support from i a co-star saying that miscarriage of justice is corrected. jason carroll, cnn, pennsylvania. and bill cosby's attorney
1:09 am
says she believes the court made the right decision because the criminal trial was never fair. listen to this. >> i have no problem with a just and verdict if you get there in a fairway. but if you cheat to get there, there is no just in that verdict. you also had a jury that heard evidence that they shouldn't have heard both in the form of the deposition obtained illegally and a jury that heard evidence from frankly other bad act, other accusers it should never have occur the because we don't try people's character, we try crimes. so i don't believe we had a fair trial and it prevented mr. bosqbcosby to tell his story from the witness stand. so this is not just a technicality or what really happened. you don't know what really happened. this trial would have been entirely different and should never have apehappened in the ps
1:10 am
pl first place. >> several accusers spoke with cnn about what they felt about the ruling. >> i'm totally overwhelmed. when i got the call this morning, i felt like i was hit by a train, you know. he deserved to be what he did because what he did is unjust. he's out on a technicality, but it doesn't change the fact that he is a predator. >> he is still professing that he is innocent, but he is not innocent. he is a notorious rapist. and he just got away with it. and this just sets back victims for wanting to come forward and give their voice because they feel like if you have enough money and you have enough time and money to work with someone that will help you and you can pay them, you can get off just about on anything. so it is just a new fight that we have to go back to. >> so while cosby can't be tried on the same criminal charges again, his legal troubles may not be over.
1:11 am
attorney gloria allred who represents several accusers say that she is moving forward with a civil lawsuit against the actor in california that had been put on hold pending the pennsylvania supreme court ruling. u.s. president joe biden will travel to surfside, florida today to meet with families and rescue workers searching for those still missing in the tower collapse. the beows bodies of two childre 4 and 10 have been pulled from the rubble. it has been one week since the building collapse and despite rain and thunderstorms, search and rescue teams are not giving up. two people staying nearby recorded this video showing water just before the collapse and also there is a crack in the concrete of the pool equipment room and it matches the damage in another photograph from earlier this yeek. more now from boris sanchez.
1:12 am
>> reporter: new glimpses of the scene at champlain tower south moments before it collapsed. video captured by a couple staying they're by owing showing debris and water gushing into the underground garage, an area inspectors said needed repairs years earlier. a 2018 inspection report warning the pool slab right above the garage had major structural damage. the couple say that they were on the pool deck of the hotel last thursday when she heard a loud crash. and she became alarmed when their building shook and she saw pieces of concrete on the ground. she told roberto the tower would collapse. >> i never thought that it would collapse because in america never that happen before. i told my wife, don't worry about it, it won't collapse. >> reporter: the couple watched as residents rushed to their balconies, confused about the
1:13 am
sound. and she and roberto scrambled into the street trying to wave for residents to evacuate but they couldn't understand her. the couple has trouble recalling what happened next, remembering only flashes. >> glass and then glass, rock and then i start running for my life. >> reporter: it took a few minutes to realize what happened. >> oh, my god. >> reporter: bruised and bloodied, the couple in disbelief. >> i said where are the people on the balaconybalcony, the buis not there. >> reporter: and that image remains in my mind, for me, it has been very difficult thinking of everyone who lived there, she says. minutes later, emergency crews began arriving on the scene with new dispatch audio's vealing immediate calls for extra help. >> we have multiple victims outside the building.
1:14 am
>> reporter: rescue workers have not stopped working the scene since and with the search soon entering the eighth day, exhaustion is setting in. >> they are running on adrenalin right now and we had one of theo got exhausted, he needed to get ived up and got him to the hospital and he is good to go, he is back on site. >> reporter: and we confirmed wednesday that federal investigators will be looking into the causes of the collapse. the national institute of standards and technology launching only the fifth investigation of this kind in the agency's history. getting answers though may take some time. these investigations can take several years. boris sanchez, cnn, surfside, florida. cnn is learning that those living in the tower right next door are getting maintenance updates for their own building.
1:15 am
several repairs are expected to begin this week. the ckcondo association says so weren't urgent but will be taken care of to reassure residents. and there will soon be monitoring sensors on support pillars throughout the property. in los angeles, a police bomb squad truck blew up wednesday injuring at least 17 people. it was a massive explosion. officers responded to a call about illegal fireworks seized in a huge stash of commercial grade materials as well as some improviseddevices. the l.a. ti"times" says that th were trying to safe ly detonate it but it failed in spectacular fashion. homes and vehicles were damaged. an investigation is under way. from britain to bangladesh and australia to the u.s., the delta variant is spreading faster than the pace of docovid
1:16 am
vaccinations. >> if you are fully vaccinated, there is good evidence that you have a high degree of protection against this virus. but if you are not vaccinated, you are in trouble.

1:20 am
the highly contagious delta variant is driving up covid cases all over the world and thousnow detected this all 50 u.s. states. here is the past two weeks versus the previous two weeks. a lot of green there are the new infections were falling. and here is the situation now, a lot more red and orange marking where new cases have gone up in the past week, and that is mostly because the delta variant is spreading quickly. experts are making it clear that the best way to escape is to get vaccinated. >> what the data tells us so far and the reason cdc made its earlier decision on masking, if you are fully vaccinated, your chances of getting sick and transmitting the infection are low. so the key message really from delta is get vaccinated. it is the best way to protect
1:21 am
yourself from this variant and from the other variants that we've seen before. >> the uk is also heading towards another for poe tential wave of coronavirus cases. the country just reported its highest number of new infections since the end of january. meanwhile health officials in scotland say about 1300 new cases there have been linked to euro championship events in england. salma abdelaziz is standing by in london. i read the strain accounts for some 99% of new covid cases there. that is incredible. but how big of a worry really is this? >> reporter: i think everyone is really watching and waiting to see what happens here in the uk because quite unintentionally, this has become the battleground for that great battle between vaccines and variants. because you have a highly vaccinated population here, over 85% of adults have received at least the first dose, at the same time you have the delta variant first identified in india, described as aggressive
1:22 am
and highly transmissible, spreading quite quickly. so the highest number of cases reported yesterday, over 26,000, highest number of cases seen since late january. government officials will argue with you that the number that actually matters is the death toll. so, yes, over 26,000 cases, but 14 deaths. i'll compare that to late january the last time that the case number was that high. at that point, there was 1245 deaths. so 14 deaths versus over 1200 deaths. and government officials will tell you that is down to the vaccination program, that has created a layer of protection that is keeping people out of the hospital and keeping people from getting seriously ill. that is why the authorities say it is still okay to lift the final restrictions in a few weeks time, but they want to see more people get those vaccinations. the goal now is to get two thirds of adults both shots by
1:23 am
july 19. but what we're also seeing is that because vaccination program here went by age, the group that is most vulnerable is the young. so one of the breeding grounds for the delta variant is schools. in the second week of june, one in 30 students had to his school for covid element are r-related because if somebody tested positive, everyone had to go home. so you have a delta variant spreading quickly, a vaccination program ramping up. officials say that they have it under control and they are beating this battle with the variant and they will be able to reopen and to ease restrictions here and sort of resume normal life despite this variant spreading. >> so the bottom line, be careful but don't panic. thank you so much, salma abdelaziz in london. bangladesh is now under a seven day lockdown, no one is allowed to leave their homes
1:24 am
except to get essentials and troops are patrolling to enforce. there were nearly 9,000 new cases and they are waiting on a shipment of 2.5 million doses of the moderna vaccine from the u.s. just two day after setting canada's highest ever recorded temperature, aville annual is being evacuated due to a fast moving wild fire, just one of more than 40 burning across british columbia fueled by extreme heat. dozens of wildfires are also burning across the western u.s. as temperatures soar. presen pedram javaheri is joining us with the latest. what are you watching for? >> this is exactly what we saw in the works here with the extensive heat, of course the long duration setup of the heat and drought that we already know existed. but you take a look at some of these images, these are out of
1:25 am
british columbia, not too far from litten with a 120 degree observation, hottest ever observed at the 50 degree parallel mark, shows you how far north the heat had extended to. but just 7 kilometers away from litten is where this fire is considered out of control. and fear conditions have been rampant. to date we're seeing about 180 more fires than where we should be for the ten year average and of course the wildfire season essentially peaking here in the next couple months and just getting started, but you will notice throughout the u.s., over 29,000 active fires observed and 25,000 is the ten year average for the u.s. as well. and the extreme heat that has been responsible kind of setting the stage for everything to flourish in the last couple days shifting a little farther toward the east. the northern plains portions of the midwestern u.s. now getting
1:26 am
in on the big time heat. look at chicago, holiday weekend approaches, temperatures soar to their warmest temperatures of the season there up into the ne ni 90s. it will cool off a little next week. but the national perspective shows you some relief there. mother nature in action across seattle and portland, temperatures that were in the one teens have cooled off to the 70s and 80s. in the northeastern u.s., they were also close to 100 degrees in the past 24 hours and they will be cooling off into the aets with some rainfall coming in. and this is tropical depression 5, it has poised to become what would be troms tropical storm . and it takes it eventually into the caribbean and yes, by early next week, we'll be watching this very carefully to see where it ends up, whether it be florida, gulf of mexico. we may be looking at a tropical system, of course we know the season beginning to warm up and it certainly is looking like it
1:27 am
when you look across the atlantic. >> thanks, pedram javaheri. appreciate it. crews are working to clear mud and debris at zion national park in southern utah after flash flooding on tuesday. several businesses suffered damage including two hotels. the park is now modified operations and says visitors should expect traffic delays, debris on roads and possibly trail and parking closures. up next, investigating the insurrection, how u.s. democrats and two republicans plan to get to the bottom of the january 6 capitol riot. agreeidegreeing calls for a to the violence in afghanistan as troop withdrawal could wrap up in a couple days.

many republicans say it is just another chance to attack donald trump, but two of them joined with democrats to approve a house investigation into the u.s. capitol riot six months ago. ryan nobles has details. >> reporter: the house of representatives will have a select committee that will be charged with investigating the events leading up to the january 6 insurrection this after a vote in the house on wednesday largely along partisan lines although two republicans, adam k kinzinger and liz cheney did vote yes, both seen as possible apupon thees to this committee by the house speak are nancy pelosi who has hinted that she may appoint a republican as part
1:32 am
of the eight people that she has to select to be put on this committee. the other five will come from the republicans, at least in consultation with kevin mccarthy. he's been coy as to how he will cooperate with this panel, he told me that he thinks the whole thing is too political, that could be because mccarthy himself could be a big part of this investigation. bennie thompson, current chair of the homeland security committee, seen as a frontrunner to become the committee chair of the sleelect committee, this is what he said about mccarthy's role in january 6 and how the select committee may investigate that. >> he has being acknowledged th had a call and other republicans said he had a call and that would be part of the collection of evidence necessary to produce a report. >> reporter: what it also means is that those five republicans should they be appointed because there were so many that voted no in forming this select
1:33 am
committee, that that crop will likely be people who voted against forming this committee to begin with. so it will likely begin its work in a very partisan manner. still pelosi said that the point of this is getting to the truth. she wants it to be transparent and open and hopefully able to come up with a consensus as to what went wrong on that day and prevent it from happening in the future. ryan nobles, cnn, capitol hill. the military architect of the u.s. war in iraq and defense secretary to presidents ford and georgia w. bush has died. donald rumsfeld passed away tuesday at his home in new mexico, he was 88. he served in the dgeorge w. bus administration when the u.s. invaded iraq and afghanistan. critics blamed him for many failures that followed in iraq but rumsfeld refused to accept that. the u.s. embassy in kabul is calling on the taliban to end
1:34 am
its on going violence. statements coming with the u.s. now just days away from completing its troop withdrawal from the country and as military officials voice concerns that afghanistan could descend into civil war. cnn is in afghanistan covering all of the developments. so let's turn to anna dcoren wh is this kabul. i imagine for many what is happening is confirming their worst fears. what are they telling you? >> reporter: yeah, kim, there is a real sense of disbelief and abandonment. afghans knew that the u.s. were obviously going to withdraw. there was a deadline put in place september 11 was set by president biden, obviously the 20th anniversary of the september 11 attacks. the whole reason why the united states came to afghanistan. but they did not think that the u.s. would be leaving this
1:35 am
quickly. we are hearing reports that u.s. troops could be out of country within the coming days. they are going to leave about a thousand troops here, 600 to protect the u.s. embassy, the remainder to secure the international airport until turkish forces come into play. but the afghans that i've spoken to say that this is not the right time, that the americans are leaving while the taliban are on the offensive. they are gaining ground daily. you can go by districts. roughly it is about 100 districts of the 370 that have fallen to the taliban. that is the official data that we are getting. but regardless of whether or not the government says that that is not accurate, we are seeing the
1:36 am
propaganda videos that the taliban are releasing on a daily basis. and they are taking over outposts afghan national security posts. and they are surrendering peacefully, but they are handing over u.s.-funded equipment, weapons, ammunition, humvees, armored vehicles. and the optics are extremely distressing. we should note that the taliban have yet to take over any provincial capitals. and general us a ten austin sco who is in charge of the withdrawal here, he is the one who said that an himpending civl war is in play because of what is taking place in afghanistan. he said that afghan forces should retreat to the cities, get out of the countrysides, the
1:37 am
districts, and retreat to the cities and secure those areas. that will be the focus of the impending battle as the taliban get closer and closer to these major cities. >> very worrisome. thanks so much for your reporting there on the ground, anna coren in kabul, appreciate it. human rights watch says myanmar's detention of an american journalist is outrageous and unacceptable. denny fenste rfltr was detained charges of spreading false news. human rights watch is calling for his release and for all charges against him to be dropped. he appeared in court today after almost a month in jail. the chinese communist party is celebrating it 100th anniversary with a massive display of pageantry and patriotism.
1:38 am
tens of thousands gathered in beijing's tiananmen square to mark the milestone and hear leaders tout china's prominence. president xi jinping said no foreign power should dare to bully china or interfere with its affairs. steven jang has been following this for us. a lot of pageantry and plenty of threats. take us through the day. >> reporter: that's right, and also there is a major thunderstorm sweeping through the city right now, so i'm sure the country's most powerful leader in decades and this carefully selected crowd of 70,000 people are feeling relieved that the big party did not get rained on. but for the vom ucommunists it about reminding the people what the party has given them. and so in the hour long speech
1:39 am
president xi as expected he extolled the party's virtues and its many accomplishments. from a very humble beginning, this is now the biggest ruling party boasting more than 95 million members and commanding the world's second biggest economy. but what is missing from the official narrative of course are the many dark chapters in the party's history that critics say has resulted in the deaths of millions of chinese including the bloody crackdown in 1989 in the very place that they held the celebration thursday in tiananmen square. that missing piece of course is a reflection of the party's ruthless nation and crushes any forms of dissent both within or outside the party, but it also shows how the party has managed to not only survive but also thrive after these dark periods because of its willingness to shift ideologies and the priorities. that is why the leadership launched its reform in the late
1:40 am
1970s to usher in deck and is of rap ped economic growth and why xi jinping has been increasingly reasserting the party's dominant role in every aspect of chinese society to make sure that the party maintains its monopoly on power in this age of new technologies. and the party of course has also taken advantage of its top down power structure to deliver economic benefits and effective governance, more recently caning t containing the covid virus within its borders. so all of this of course allowing the party to tout the superiority of its political system even as it is increasingly on a collision course with the united states and other democracies around the world. >> steven jiang, thanks so much. in the coming hours, a redesigned garden will be the setting of a new stat which you statue of princess diana.
