2:01 am
pat cipollone who spent hours with the house select committee friday. committee members say they will air clips on that interview. >> he was able to provide information on basically all of the critical issues that we are looking at, including the president's what i will call dereliction of duty on the day of january 6. >> steve bannon says he is willing to testify now. this after former president trump lifted a claim of executive privilege. he is set to appear in court today a criminal contempt charges filed after he ignored a congressional subpoena. let's bring in host of the podcast that said. good to see you this morning. as we look at what is potentially what we will likely learn more about at the hearings what are you most interested in? >> we are up to part six and
2:02 am
seven of the seven part conspiracy outlined on day one. these parts are trump assembled and summoned the mob and directed them to go to the capital, and then stood by and did nothing while they ransacked the capital. i am interested to see what they are able to do to tie trump to the mob that attacks the capital, the insurrection on january 6. a prerequisite to any kind of conspiracy especially seditious conspiracy charged against trump. >> we look at what is to come and talk about these extremist groups, specifically the old keepers in connection with january 6th, what about trying to link as you just laid out? you talk about potential criminal charges, not the role of this committee. there are a lot of folks out there wondering if that could ultimately happen. how important and how difficult
2:03 am
perhaps could be? >> it is important from a prosecutor standpoint if the attorney general is going to bring seditious criminal conspiracy charges they are going to need to draw that line much more boldly than it has drawn so far. from a political standpoint, understanding the relationship between the white house and the old keepers-proud boys group i think is important for americans to know. maybe the proud boys type that is going to testify tomorrow will be able to drive it out. maybe pat cipollone will be able to draw that out. at the willard hotel on the morning of january 6 and the day before the problem is, roger stone and others were all assembled. maybe pat cipollone, who participated in trying to distract the president from interacting with them or mark
2:04 am
meadows from interacting with them can shed light on that. >> in terms of cipollone we know that he was there for hours . cnn has since learned he was asked about a number of topics that in fact there were not limitations, but that he did invoke executive privilege. we are expecting to hear some of that testimony, those clips we played. he answered or addressed all of the critical issues. in your mind what are the most critical ? is that about cooperating what we heard from cassidy hutchinson? >> what we want to know from cipollone is what did he see? who did he speak to? what did he try to prevent? what crimes was he worried about? how was he trying to keep the train on the tracks, which is why he stayed so long, until the bitter end actually. so that we get a sense of what was going on to the run up to
2:05 am
january 6, and then importantly on january 6 itself. cipollone is said to have been in the dining room with trump as trump was watching the tv and the insurrection unfold. by all testimony so far did nothing to stop it and may have even cheerleader it. cipollone could offer a lot of insight into the president's state of mind on january 6 and in the immediate run-up to it. >> this letter comes from the former president saying he is relieving steve bannon. if they can come to an agreement and a time and place for this testimony there are reports the better would like the testimony to be public. committee members say that is unlikely. they have a lot of questions that will take hours and alive four not be best. what you think there is this sudden change?
2:06 am
>> well, i think there are either two things going on that one is banning is actually on the eve of his trial concerned about being convicted of criminal content and facing a year in prison. and/or trump and he had inspired to have steve bannon come in and try to blow up the hearing with testimony which is accusatory of the committee, you know a witch hunt, rigged, and all the words that we have so often heard from the president, benin, and those alike. it's one of those two things most likely. i am very skeptical of band and finding a spine to tell the truth about what he was doing. we will have to see. >> we will be watching. thank you. paul ryan sobbing as he watched the capital riot unfold on tv.
2:07 am
he said he never thought trump's grievances would result in the violence. that is part of his forthcoming book thank you for your servitude. a copy of which obtained by cnn. in it he writes something snapped in him, noting i spent my whole adult life in that building. it really disturbed me foundational. he is kept a low profile since leaving congress in 2019. what president biden could do next to preserve abortion access. plus, flames right now threatening some ancient american treasures. and the protesters who dared to take a dip in the presidential swimming pool.

2:12 am
mass shooting survivors and victims families. it is the mark of historic legislation signed into law last month. it was a wide-ranging measure that congress has now approved. some critics note this is not enough. already it has been overshadowed by the mass shooting in allen park on july 4. the shooter took the lives of seven people. president biden says he is considering whether to declare a public health emergency as part of an effort to protect access to abortion in the wake of last month's supreme court decision overturning roe versus wade. jasmine, how exactly with this public health emergency work? what would it achieve? >> i think that is one of the things the white house is trying to figure out. the president said yesterday to reporters that he asked health officials within his administration to basically take a look at whether or not he had the authority to
2:13 am
actually put that in place, also what the impact would be. on friday we heard from the executive director of the gender counsel. she told reporters her office had looked at it and found two things. one, that it would not actually free of many resources. they also found it would not provide the president with a lot of authority. that is why at that point they had not done it. certainly a white house that is trying to figure out what options it has, especially as it faces down real pressure from progressive democrats, lawmakers, even moderate lawmakers and abortion advocates really trying to push them to act quickly and boldly to find some sort of way to protect women's access to abortion. the president on sunday when talking to reporters he was asked about the images we saw of women protesting in front of the white house, trying to get them to do some options.
2:14 am
his message was to keep going. take a listen. >> keep protesting. keep making your point. it is critically important. do a lot of things to accommodate the rights of women in the meantime. fundamentally nobody is going to change this unless we have a national law that reinstates role versus way. that is the bottom line. >> reporter: that by my for the president, he says his main goal was to figure out a way to reset roe versus wade three law codifying it. the only way to do that was for americans to elect a pro-choice congress this november in the midterms. he is using that line go vote. of course that is something falling short, feeling to meet the urgency a lot of advocates want to see. i am sure that will continue. >> that is certainly the criticism. also with us tyler pager
2:15 am
from the washington post. you have some reporting about that frustration with the president and this administration for failing to meet the moment and lacking the urgency, especially for an opinion that they basically had the outline for 2 months ago. how did the white house and the president get caught so flat- footed? >> i think that is the question a lot of lawmakers and advocates are asking themselves. i think after hearing the president and his advisers say different things with regard to be public health emergency and whether or not to declare it. when you talk to people inside and outside the white house they both say the president and his team did not respond in the forceful way they were hoping to. them president did not immediately speak after the decision before going to europe. the toner rhetoric that we heard then was very different from the forceful tone we heard
2:16 am
on friday. i think that gap is something a lot of people are questioning. lawmakers are questioning why wasn't the white house not more prepared? they say at the white house that they spend weeks and months planning for contingencies. i think that the question remains why was the policy still not settle? how was the white house and the administration not clear on what authority the president had and what sort of response they want to see old inside and outside the white house. i think that gap is one to keep an eye on. >> we keep hearing more more trick a lot about it. it is interesting as a look at this in part of your reporting you write some democrats are pushing for this administration and for democrats to take a page out of the republican playbook and to offer a more. even if they are ultimately struck down.
2:17 am
similar to some reporting that we had here, that the president kind of needs to get caught trying. is there an appetite for that in the democratic party right now? >> i think there is. voters and lawmakers want to see the president take more aggressive action. that will be a mobilizing tool for the press to get out and vote. remember, it is a message that we've heard from president biden. i think it's what we heard about trying to challenge them. we've seen them run into trouble on that front. we see that with the rules they tried to put in with mandates. if you talk to your people out on the street who want to see more forceful action they say that is a mobilizing tool that shows the president is eager to take action and is doing all that he can to do so. >> the push to get out and
2:18 am
vote, we know historically overturning roe versus wade was very effective for republicans and they may sure that word. you look at where we are at now, young immigrant seen really frustrated by what they are seeing or frankly not seeing. is there a concern that despite all of these pleas for people concerned about access post roe versus wade the best thing to do is to vote. is there a concern this lack of action is turning out some of those voters, particularly younger voters? >> we heard that sentiment in the reporting we did for this story. we listened into focus groups where we heard that younger voters are really concerned about the overturning of reverses way. they are not as inspired to fight back as some democrats would hope that they might be. this was a hugely animated issue for decades. they saw this 40+ year effort resulted in what they were hoping for, the overturning of this law. democrats are trying
2:19 am
to harness that outrage and that energy and bring it into electoral victories in november. i think as you said these voters want to see action, the same outrage they feel reflective in leaders. i think for some of them they feel the president and his team are falling short. >> coming up the secretary of state in japan ahead of the funeral of its assassinated former leader. and how fighters are trying to steer flames way from yosemite's historic sequoia trees.

at least 15 people killed in a russian strike on an russian strike in ukraine. more victims may still be trapped under the rubble. russian forces are ramping up efforts to control over the entire region. john mclean joining us live from kyiv this morning. the big question for a lot of folks it's rather not the ukrainians have the firepower and manpower to hold on to that region? >> this is precisely the question that will be answered over the next few days as the fighting ramps up. both sides have reported the fighting has intensified in the northern part of the region with heavy shelling taking place.
2:42 am
ukrainians say they managed to push the russians back in many places. the russians also claimed they have captured one glitch on the ukrainian side. that is significant because that river has been a natural barrier preventing the russians from easily moving forward. the ukrainians say the shelling has really not stop. even in the same town where after two missile strikes on an apartment building rescue efforts are continuing to try to pull people out from under the rubble. this building, part of it looks like it has been absolutely alliterative. a sea of people confirmed dead by local authorities. eight have been pulled out alive. what is not clear is whether or not that eight includes the two people the ukrainians say that they have been able to talk to from under the rubble as they have worked to get to the and freedom. the situation is much different in the southern part of the country. this is where the ukrainians have stepped up efforts to hit russian supply lines.
