children before your own, in my view you should find another job. >> reporter: the rampage lasted 77 minutes until border patrol agents breached the classroom killing the gunman at 12:52 p.m. school district police chief pete airrredondo testified they prioritized getting children evacuated over approaching the attacker. my thought was we're a barrier, get these kids out. >> we need to get these kids out of here. come on, kids. >> reporter: while officers evacuated students chief arrendondo tried to talk to the gunman. >> this could be peaceful. could you tell me your name, anything i can know, please? >> reporter: that gunman firing 142 rounds. the majority before any first responders even entered the building but there were still survivors in the classroom while officers waited outside. >> on the phone with multiple victims. >> they have victims in there. called 911. >> reporter: dispatch heard
7:08 am
telling officers there were survivors, but it would be at least 47 more minutes after the first 911 call before they finally went in. the committee stating given the information known about the victims who survived through the time of the breach and who later died on the way to the hospital, it is plausible that some victims could have survived if they had not had to wait 73 additional minutes for rescue. the report also found a breakdown f school safety measures. the school's alert system delayed due to wi-fi issues and none of the three exterior doors to the west building were locked giving the shooter unimpeded access. the committee confirming he walked inside room 111 through a door with a lock that had been broken for months. a possible motive also released in the report. the shooter was a former student of robb elementary school and attended fourth grade in room 111. his former teacher testified he was bullied that year. the mother of rojelio torres one

7:10 am
and open defiance of a congressional subpoena, steve bannon is about to go on trial. bannon faces two counts of contempt of congress in a trial that begins today with jury selection. although he was fired as a white house chief strategist just seven months into the trump presidency, he remained a loud and confrontational trump ally, a key player in trump's efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election. fanning the flames with his war room podcast in the weeks after the election. >> what we need now is patriots like in lexington and in concord that will hold the line. if you hold the line, we're going to win. >> reporter: the january 6th committee subpoenaed bannon last september. >> all hell is going to break loose tomorrow. >> reporter: pointing to his own words one day before the attack. >> it's not going to happen like you think it's going to happen, okay? it's going to be quite extraordinarily different and all i can say is strap in. >> reporter: bannon refused to cooperate citing executive
7:11 am
privilege, the right of a president to receive confidential advice. but bannon's claim was highly questionable. he did not work for the white house on january 6th and, in fact, had been fired 3 1/2 years earlier. in october the house voted to hold bannon in criminal contempt. the committee saying he had, quote, specific knowledge about the events planned for january 6th before they occurred. earlier this month as his trial date neared bannon suddenly said he would agree to testify. >> give me a date, time, room number, microphone and holy bible i can take the oath on. >> reporter: prosecutors alleged the offer was nothing more than an attempt to help his criminal case. the federal judge overseeing his case threw out bannon's claims of executive privilege. bannon's trial comes as the january 6th committee prepares for what may be its final hearing on thursday. >> chief legal analyst dan
7:12 am
abrams joins us as well as jon. you look at the pretrial hearing and seems like he was telling him going to trial is a waste of time. >> the defense will have to be was it intentional and was it deliberate and that is the legal standard at this point. bannon's basically admitting that it was intentional and deliberate outside of court. so inside of court he's going to have to argue, i guess, i thought we were still involved in a negotiation. i didn't know the date was a certain cutoff, et cetera, but that's a tough argument. this judge basically said we're not turning this in a political trial. he wanted too to call all sorts of witnesses and committee members. this judge a former clarence thomas clerk so this is not some liberal whacky judge here. this is someone who decided based on the law that bannon doesn't have much of a defense. >> bannon's attorneys will try to argue he can't get a fair trial because the january 6th committee tainted the jury pool. >> and because of all the media attention, et cetera. look, every high-profile case
7:13 am
i've covered, the defendant says i can't get a fair trial because there's too much publicity, et cetera. and in every case, you listen to jury selection, and it's amazing how little people are following the news. i mean the bottom line is this notion that everyone knows who steve bannon is just isn't true. you're going to be able to find jurors who haven't followed the steve bannon case. >> might not be that hard. meanwhile, jon, the january 6th committee is preparing for what looks like its final hearing on thursday. laser focus on president trump inside the oval office on january 6th. >> reporter: yeah, george, regardless of what you think about trump's ultimate responsibility for creating the riot, creating the conditions that led to the attack on the capitol, there is no question that while the capitol was under attack he did nothing to stop it. what the committee has done here now and will present in this possibly final hearing is a look at 187 minutes between the end of his speech outside the white house and the moment when he finally released the video calling on his supporters to go
7:14 am
home. the ultimate dereliction of duty reconstructed with white house records and testimony of those who talked to donald trump on that day and those who were inside the white house and witnessed his actions and inactions. >> jon karl, dan abrams, thanks very much. t.j. we turn now to what large parts of the country are now dealing with. dangerous summer heat. reaching triple digits but we're not just talking about the heat index but the actual temperatures. ginger here now. i guess, ginger these qualify as literal hot spots you're keeping an eye on. >> a map will show you daily records that could fall. dozens from washington state to florida up into the northeast. but it's not about daily records. this is about all-time heat records like salt lake city tied 107, second summer in a row. oklahoma city which should flirt with their hottest july temperatures by tomorrow but texas really took the brunt of the heat since many are still in
7:15 am
excessive heat. that's why we want to check in with wfaa meteoologist greg fields. >> we'll be close as we're looking at daytime highs around 108, 109. record is 110 and that's going to be the neighborhood we'll be over the next few days at least through the middle of the week, 108, 109 through the middle of the week and temperatures will come down some. 22 days and counting for us with the triple digit heat, that's above our average of 20 100-degree days we typically see during the summer so we're looking at another long stretch of triple digit heat over the next few days here, so we'll add to that number, and so far, the third hottest summer on record going back to 2011 and 1980. >> thank you so much, greg. there in dallas, it's just one area where we see the heat but it is going to spread east. check it out. challenging, grids everywhere, detroit into the 90s, new york cit, we should get our second official heat wave of the summer. we'll track it as it heads east, amy. now to the very latest on

the war in ukraine. president zelenskyy suspended his top two law enforcement officials citing more than 600 cases of treason by government personnel as russia steps up its devastating attacks on civilian targets. our senior foreign correspondent ian pannell has the latest. >> reporter: this morning, ukraine on high alert as president zelenskyy warns there were hundreds of cases of treason and collaboration by his own security services with russia. in a dramatic move the head of ukraine's security services ivan bakanov and iryna venediktova who was in charge of investigating war crimes has been suspended for failing to deal with culprits. in a televised address zelenskyy saying, connections detected between the employees of the security forces of ukraine and the special forces of russia pose very serious questions to the relevant leaders.
7:17 am
bakanov came under questioning for security breaches, and then meeting with merrick garland, just last month under fire in her department as russian strikes ramp up in the south. over the weekend pounding the coastal cities of and he asked them to step up operations across ukraine. while the russian defense minister has his forces in the east to give priority to long-range precision-guided weapon systems to find them, destroy them, that's likely a reference to those u.s. himars systems which match that profile to test how effective they've been. ukraine has been given 12 by the u.s., and yes, ukraine is grateful, but in order to win the war, they don't need 12, they need 112. >> now, ian pannell in kyiv for us thank you. we turn to the oldest golf

7:43 am
tough now given how far out of reach for both renting and buying and with mortgage rates rising, here's how you can think it through. chelsea and ryan have been renters for eight years in orange county, california. but as their family has grown so have their housing needs and now the questions so many are asking, continue renting or take te plunge and buy? >> this one has been on 24 days now. >> reporter: the couple has been working with their real estate agent rita to figure out their best option. >> we're also kind of wanting to see what happens with the market with interest rates higher. we're going back and forth. do we rent? do we buy? >> the interest rate has affected purchase values. >> reporter: so how can you decide whether to rent or buy? consider some pros and cons, benefits of renting include flexibility, little to no upkeep fees and lower upfront costs. >> think about how long you want to be in a home. if you're only going to be there for a couple of years, renting
7:44 am
for a couple of years, renting is probably the better decision. >> reporter: while renting is a good option for some, drawbacks include fewer choices, rising rent costs, and unpredictable increases. >> rental prices are up 15% compared to a year ago and you're probably going to face rental price increases year after year. >> reporter: if you're thinking of buying, consumers should consider pros including more stability and tax benefits versus cons like high up front costs, rising mortgage rates and responsibility for maintenance and repairs. >> you want to make sure you can commit to being in a home for five years or so to make those costs make sense. you're generally locking in the majority of your monthly housing costs, which can be a nice hedge against inflation, which helps make sure that your budget can stay intact. >> while it can sound appealing home prices up 20.4% from last year as interest rates and mortgage rates continue to rise. but the good news for buyers,
7:45 am
the number of homes for sale on the market is going up. >> it's getting easier to find options to choose from even though those options are still getting more expensive. >> reporter: so the bottom line here those three questions, how long are you prepared to live there? if you feel certain it's five years or more buying can be the better option, how important is mobility? flexibility has its own value and finally, could your financial situation change? if you are buying you want to consider the 28% rule. that is no more than 28% of your gross income should be going to your monthly mortgage payment. there are a lot of resources to help you calculate the best option for yourself to rent versus buying. there are calculators at nerd wallet and and bank rate. the process is filled with so much stress and strain, pumping the brakes even if you're told not to can be the best option for your mental and financial health. >> thank you, rebecca. all right, well, coming up here we now know why old mcdonald did not keep an emu on

8:16 am
the key finding out what factors are going on with you so that then you can go on an all out attack and really try to, you know, make it better. >> with what are the treatment options out there? >> listen, i'm literally doing everything. i think that's generally what a lot of people do because of that sense of desperation but the first thing is rest your hair from styling, from color processing, that is massively important. hairstylists and dermatologists will tell you that alike. there are a few over-the-counter oral hair supplements that largely contain multivitamins buy biotin, that can really help. hair extensions, this ponytail is in hidden crown. they can be helpful from people. for me it was increasing protein in my diet since i went vegetarian than scalp injections which are experimental. i have tried them and i saw a huge result. it does take months, they are expensive. they're generally not covered by insurance. but for some types of hair loss you can see the before and after takes about four to six months but that can be really helpful
