6:07 am
but said she heard it from tony or nato. the former white house chief of operations and with angle present the president is the anecdote was the most startling of many shared by the former white house aide at tuesday's hearing. one that was urgently announced after the committee said it received new evidence, one white mail house. how police audio from january 6 revealed guns had been spotted among the crowd, gathered near trumps, rally hutchinson said backstage she heard trumps say the event should not have had metal detectors. i overheard the presidency on the super tough. you know, i, i don't, i think her that they have weapons. they're not here to hurt me. the suing violence contributed to the deaths of at least 7 people and injured a $150.00 police officers. hutchinson said, she watched the riot unfold from the white house, just doors down from trump. she recounted this conversation between her boss, chief of staff, mark meadows, and the white house of top lawyer. i remember saying,

july, heidi joe castro al jazeera washington. melanie sloane is a former counsel to the us house judiciary committee on a partner with some strategy. she says the testimony is damaging to dawn from. it was explosive testimony. i don't think anybody had any idea that cassidy hutchinson would have so much as so important so many important things to say. but not only did she talk about the efforts of the, the president to grab the steering wheel. but i think it's also just as important, if not more important, that she talk at length about what president trump said about the people with, with firearms who were there that they weren't there to attack him. and that means that he had awareness that there were people with guns and that he got up there and he incited those people. and that i think has been one of the questions, was the president just engaged in 1st amendment protected political speech?
6:10 am
or was he actually inciting seditious conspiracy? and knowing that there were people there with guns who were ready to attack other people. and we also heard that he didn't care mike pence did get hung, suggests that the justice department may well be able to make a case against mr. trump. the consequences of his testimony are a potential prosecution of donald trump. this is the 1st time we've had someone testify about exactly what donald trump said on during the stay. at the time all of this violence was starting to take place. it also shows that he had an intent to be there what part of him grabbing the steering wheel, trying to push the secret service agent to be there, shows that he was, he wrote, you really wanted to be a part of it was prevented from, from being further part of it, and in the past, we've only had trump at the white house, serve as a bystander to all the violence. but this is the 1st time we had someone really putting him in the violence. the british, a social like elaine maxwell has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for helping

6:19 am
you will, when you, when you, unless you in reality there was no strike on the shopping center. the russian armed forces use precision weapons to strike hangers with western weapons and munitions received from the united states in europe and countries in the area of the kremlin shook road machinery plant. those weapons and ammunition were spread throughout the warehouse area for further shipment to ukrainian troops. in dawn bass fil a group of western council members accused russia of attacking residential areas and civilian infrastructure. in recent days, a un official noted the latest wave of air strikes and muscle attack happens far from the front lines, killing or injuring many civilians. according to the un, since the start of the conflict, 4700 civilian ukrainians have been killed and other 5900 injured and those are just the casualties who have been verified. the war and ukraine dominated the summit of the well 7 richest nations g 7 latest pledge, $4500000000.00 to find growing hunger,
6:20 am
and the conflict pushes out the global fee prices. they made the commitment during the final day for meeting in southern germany. steadfast a report from that. it was the summit of strong language amid scenic views, lead us up to 7 highest income countries, stressed how united they are in the condemnation of russia's war in ukraine. missile attacks on q and a crowd, a supermarket, and comment joke taking place during the summit. only increased their anger, we have addon fighter, we will continue to hold up and drive up the economy and political costs of this war for president putin and his regime to that. and it's important to stand together also during the long haul, and that will surely be at stake here to learn interesting. and we will also resolutely counter the russian narrative that this is actually a conflict with. and we're only the west and the so called global west is condemning this attack. and otherwise the world is watching what russia is actually doing. that is not the case leaders acknowledge the fall out of the war is increasingly being felt around the world and needs urgent action. but they sat
