12:02 am
from "the new york times" reports the incident commander in charge, the school district police chief, pete arredondo, showed up without his police radio to communicate the times cites a law enforcement official familiar with the investigation the newspaper reports arredondo decided in the first minutes to fall back after the gunman's bullets grazed a couple police supervisors. he reportedly called a police landline from his cell phone to request more backup. and said the gunman was contained. of course, we now all know that the children were trapped inside that classroom with the gunman, cowering in fear some playing dead, others calling 911, begging for help. so instead of confronting the gunman immediately, like they had been trained since columbine, police officers held back for more than an hour as we reported, border patrol agents eventually ignored that police chief's orders and led a stack ofofficers in the classroom to kill the gunman
12:03 am
the times reports they were done waiting for permission they continued even after one of them heard a command crackling in his ear piece, do not breach. it's not just the police chief under fire, either the father of one of the murdered students is now going after the maker of the ar-15 style rifle used in the shooting a company called daniel defense. the father has hired the same lawyer who successfully sued remington for sandy hook families that suit settled for $73 million. the attorney is seeking information from daniel defense about its marketing to teens and children look at this one week before the shooting, the company tweeted this photo, a toddler holding an assault-style rifle in his lap cnbc's perry russom live in uvalde tonight perry. >> shep, we also have a teacher who is going after the gun maker. they filed a petition here in court. this was filed at 7:01 yesterday, central time, at district court, which is right
12:04 am
across the street from where thousands have come to remember the 21 the first legal action is being taken in the uvalde school shooting robb elementary teacher amelia marin has filed a petition asking to depose daniel defense. according to the petition, daniel defense designed, manufactured, marketed, and told the rifle to the gunman through a local dealer marin is asking for testimony and evidence for a potential lawsuit. today, investigators for the district attorney are back at the school checking the door the gunman used to get in. frustration continues to build on the delayed response from police rubin's great granddaughter lexi was killed in the shooting >> that was my purpose, to see how quickly they would get there. >> on sunday, he went to the memorial downtown and pulled a knife on police. >> i got a knife >> i hollered at them that they didn't have the cajones to do

12:06 am
prayers saying they will help with the investigation shep >> perry russom live in uvalde can the u.s. economy fend off inflation and avoid a recession? some of america's top business executives appear to be growing more pessimistic new today, the tesla ceo, elon musk, says he has what he calls a super bad feeling about the economy. it echoes the message earlier this week from the jpmorgan jace ceo jamie dimon about a looming economic hurricane reporters today asked president biden about musk's comments. he brushed off concerns. >> well, let me tell you while elon musk is talking about that, ford is increasing their investment overwhelmingly. so you know, lots of luck on his trip to the moon >> the president applauding the solid jobs report out today. data from the labor department shows the u.s. added 390,000 jobs last month. that means we have now recovered almost all of the jobs lost during the pandemic. the unemployment rate steady at
12:07 am
3.6% and average hourly wages were more than 5% higher than the year before. >> that's a sign of a healthy economy. with steady growth, rising wages for working families everyday costs easing up, and shrinking the deficit. that stability puts us in a strong position to tackle what is clearly a problem, inflation. >> the markets wincing the dow fell more than 300 points today, closed down more than 1%. cnbc's senior markets commentator mike santoli live from the new york stock exchange cnbc pro calls it not too hot, not too gold just the goldilocks moment we need what does that mean? >> well, shep, it shows the underlying job market is very healthy. 390,000 net new jobs is absolutely quite strong, especially with unemployment already this low, but there was a little bit of slowdown in wage growth that was one element that a lot of investors were watching, the federal reserve is watching.
12:08 am
which would imply at least kind of affirms the idea that perhaps inflation has peaked and wage growth at least might not be a driver of that, so that's why you get the sort of not too hot piece of an otherwise very strong jobs report >> these warnings and concerns from musk and dimon, what are they telling us? >> it's difficult to know what elon musk is saying about the overall economy. it's a relatively vague comment from him, but maybe it just means his company has been growing so fast, they might have overhired over the course of the last few years maybe it feels like they're not quite the right size when it comes to jamie dimon, he runs the largest bank in the country, and he's mostly naming what the federal reserve is likely to do to fight inflation, raise interest rates quite a bit over the next several months and also withdraw some other stimulus measures that they have put in place since the pandemic, buying up a lot of treasury bonds. that's one measure he also flagged the possibility
12:09 am
of oil going to $150 or $175 a barrel, assuming the war in ukraine continues to wage. and those things he felt as if raise the risk level for some kind of bad economic outcome, maybe a recession eventually, though i would point out, jamie dimon's kind of paid to worry about these things he's saying currently, his customers, consumers, and companies, they're still spending, they're still in decent shape they're not falling too far behind on their debts or anything like that it's much more about what might come down the road as opposed to the way the economy looks right now. >> mike santoli, live at the stock exchange thank you. weather alert. tropical storm warnings in effect for the southern half of the state offlorida. right now, a system is strengthening in the gulf of mexico, forecasters say they expect tonight it will become tropical storm alex. if so, it will be the first named storm of the atlantic hurricane season that started just two days ago. a live look now in key west. the national hurricane center reports parts of south florida and the keys could get up to a
12:10 am
foot of rain over the next 24 hours. accuweather senior meteorologist adam dell roso tracking it for us tonight lots of rain >> oh, yeah, shep. this has a lot of tropical moisture with it, and this is going to cause a lot of flooding problems as we head threw tonight and the day tomorrow that precipitation to tampa and orlando. this thing is still fairly unorganized which is why it has not officially become a tropical storm. but as you mention, in the next 12 to 24 hours, we are expecting that to change, as it gets closer to landfall in the middle of tomorrow morning. we have those tropical storm warnings in effect here, all those counties shaded in orange, where we're expecting gusts 40 to 60 miles per hour across the keys, up toward cape canaveral as well as sarasota. future radar showing that landfall sometime in the middle of tomorrow morning near cape coral. it quickly makes its way across the peninsula, taking some of those heavier downpours with it. also need to watch out for isolated tornadoes as this is making its way across land notice by sunday, the heaviest
12:11 am
rain gone, but there could still be some spotty downpours that linger into the second half of the weekend. the biggest issue will be that flooding we have flood watches all across central and south florida, into the keys where we're expecting 8 to 12 inches of rainfall from naples over toward west palm, southward through ft. lauderdale, miami, into the keys even as far north as tampa and daytona beach, expecting 1 to 2 inches of rain hurricane season getting started with a bang here, shep >> adam dell roso, thanks very much >> a former trump senior adviser arrested at the airport. the indictment and the court appearance on january 6th, at the capitol, we know there were chants of "hang my pence." now, we're learning new details about how concerned his inner circle was about his safety and the actions they took just one day before and an escaped killer in a shootout with police on the run for three weeks, then a murder spree. how the cops' takedown came too

on january 5th last year, vice president pence's secretary of staff called him to his office in the white house. according to a report from "the new york times" just today, the chief of staff, marc short, had a message for the agent. the president was going to turn publicly against the vice president, and there could be a security risk to mr. pence because of it. the next day, january 6th, a mob of trump supporters stormed the capitol shouting "hang mike pence. in the days leading up to the insurrection, president trump pressured pence to overturn the election results during the congressional certification process. of course, he refused to do so, saying correctly, he did not have that power. the times report comes as the

january 6th committee gets set to hold its first public hearing coming up this thursday night in primetime. today, justice department officials did what members of the committee asked them to do they charged the former trump adviser pete navarro with contempt of congress and took him into custody navarro has refused to talk to lawmakers on the committee, but he has been more than willing to speak to reporters he's done it again and again including just yesterday with msnbc's ari melber >> you're risking going potentially to jail, not to talk to them, but you're out here talking in public. you do realize these investigators can hear you when you talk on tv >> well, we're talking about now, ari, is the case law itself and the constitutionality of executive privilege, testimony immunity >> it's just not true. navarro spoke again today after appearing in federal court this afternoon. he slammed the january 6th
12:15 am
committee, called it unconstitutional said prosecutors are lunching a preemptive strike on the civil lawsuit he filed against the committee. navarro once again claims he can't cooperate because president trump invoked executive privilege. >> untenable constitutional position we have here, and there's a whole lot of other issues with those subpoenas, is i have testimony immunity, and the president, there's trump executive privilege. >> he's wrong on the facts navarro did not enter a plea today, and he's currently representing himself though he's not a lawyer nbc's senior national political correspondent sahil kapur is here has this committee responded since navarro's arrest and statements >> well, shep, peter navarro was charged and arrested today on two counts of contempt of congress one for failing to show up to his scheduled deposition testimony, and the second for
12:16 am
refusing to provide documents as per that lawful subpoena the committee has not formally commented on this indictment, but we know this is something the committee wanted they had been hoping for a more aggressive enforcement posture from the justice department. as recently as two months ago when they met and voted to hold navarro and dan scavino, another trump aide, in contempt. adam schiff, one of the members of the committee, responded abstractly after the indictment saying prosecution of those who refuse to comply with the subpoena is essential for this committee to fulfill their oversight committees navarro is a former trump trade adviser who involved himself in the plot to overturn the 2020 election he worked with steve bannon, he was coordinating 100 workers on it then-president trump was onboard with the plan. the committee called him up and
12:17 am
said you have information that is very relevant to our investigation. they issued a subpoena he did not comply. the committee's hope is this is the beginning of a more aggressive posture by the justice department that will also include charges and arrests against other members that the committee has cited but the doj has not acted on most notably dan scavino as well as mark meadows, the chief of staff at the time. >> what are we expecting from the committee's first hearing in primetime next week? >> it will be next thursday starting at 8:00 p.m. eastern. the committee has held its cards close to the vest, not revealing much we don't officially have a witness list, although there are some indications the committee is looking at people in former vice president pence's orbit the reason being pence is a crucial foil to then-president trump because he refused to go along with that effort to overturn the election by discounting electors he had a very public break with the former president ever since then we know the committee has a desire to convey to the american public what happened on january
12:18 am
6th. the violence on the capitol but more importantly the bigger picture. every that led up to it. sources on the committee described it as a fire that had been kindling for month and months according to liz cheney, the vice chair of the committee, a republican, they also want to talk about then-president trump's role in pressuring the justice department to overturn the results of the election and stay in power even though he lost >> sahil kapur live tonight. thank you. >> we'll be airing the january 6th hearings live beginning thursday night, 8:00 eastern, and through the evening, right after the news on cnbc thousands of dollars worth -- i should say thousands of dollars a month for life-saving drugs. but what do you do if you can't pay? tonight, the story of one woman forced to make that choice, and she's not alone. and pennsylvania's recount in the republican senate primary is not over. but tonight, a winner. but tonight, a winner. who just

dr. mehmet oz will be the republican nominee for the open senate seat in the state of pennsylvania just last hour, we learned david mccormick conceded after he said he realized the state-wide recount would not give him enough votes to make up the deficit. he says he called dr. oz to concede. before the recount, oz led the race by a razor thin margin. fewer than 1,000 votes that triggered an automatic recount. mccormick's decision to concede sets up a general election between oz and pennsylvania's lieutenant governor john fetterman. today, earlier, the democrat announced he nearly died when he had a stroke just days before his primary. >> in other news tonight, the world's largest meeting on cancer research is under way in chicago. thousands of doctors and researchers from around the globe getting together in person for the first time since the pandemic started

they're there to learn about the latest advances in treating cancer but those medical breakthroughs, and they are amazing, are also very expensive patients often expected to shell out more than $100,000 a year on the new treatments some cancer doctors have coined a new term for an unexpected side effect of these drugs financial toxicity meaning some patients don't even take the medications that could save their lives cnbc's meg tirrell spoke with one of them. >> retired nurse lynn spent much of her career helping her patients navigate how to pay for costly cancer drugs. then, she was diagnosed with leukemia her medicine keeps her cancer in check, but it costs almost $16,000 a month. even with her medicare, she would still be on the hook for $12,000 out of pocket each year. >> come on you don't pass that kind of money. not me

12:31 am
vladimir putin expected a swift and decisive victory over ukraine. he thought his mighty war machine could seize the capital kyiv in just two days, according to the cia putin was sorely mistaken. his invasion has dragged on for 100 days now, with no end in sight. this is a time lapse of the russian onslaught from the british defense ministry you can see the full scale russian blitzkrieg from multiple directions fail. the russians retreated from the north in kyiv. they regrouped and refocused o eastern ukraine, where they have had more success the ukrainian president volodymyr zelenskyy says russia now controlss one-fifth of his country, but the invasion has come at a staggering price western officials say they believe more than 15,000 russian troops have been killed in ukraine. that's about the same number of troops the soviet union lost during its disastrous war in afghanistan over nearly a decade once thriving ukrainian cities now decimated to ashes
12:32 am
the united nations reports the invasion has killed more than 4,000 civilians. but the actual toll is likely much, much higher. retires four-star naval officer admiral james stavridis now, former supreme allied commander of nato and now an nbc news international security and diplomacy contributor. zelenskyy says that russian forces occupy 20% of ukraine now. is this a tipping point? >> i think we're at an inflection point, if i can, shep we are beginning by reiterating what you said up front, putin's initial objective was 100% of the country. he's managed to end up now with 20% of the country that's a failing grade on the other hand, it is still a fifth of this vast country of ukraine. so to your point, we are at a tipping point where both sides, the russians and the ukrainians,
12:33 am
are approaching the point where there's going to be a negotiation. we cannot simply go on forever i think in the two to four-month future, we're going to see both sides need to get to some kind of a negotiation, shep >> you know, we're told, admiral, putin is digging in for a long war of attrition, and that he thinks the west is going to blink does he have the upper hand when it comes to the long game? >> i don't think so, but i'll admit that, you know, western attention spans are perhaps not what they should be. but i think the bellwether here is less the american public, more europe. and for europeans, shep, this invasion rattles old ghosts. these are russian tanks rolling to the west. they rape their way across germany at the end of world war
12:34 am
ii they destroyed budapest in '58 they threatened warsaw the europeans understand, i think now, the level of threat they're facing from russia i don't see them suddenly folding up here. defense budgets are rising sweden and finland are joining nato think about that for a minute. i think europe has been awakened to vladimir putin. they're not going to fall asleep again in my view >> you wrote an op-ed last month, and in it you said the next front in the war will likely be in the black sea has that played out the way you thought it might, and what does this mean as the war continues >> it has played out that way, and thank you for asking the admiral to comment on the sea. the point here, shep, is that russia controls the black sea. they have choked off those ukrainian ports, notably odesa, and here's the key
12:35 am
10%, 20% of the world's grain is parked inside ukraine. if we can't get it out, we the big we, the world, the impact on global food supplies is going to be significant, leading to unrest around the world. so i think the next move in this conflict is going to be cracking that russian blockade, probably with nato, western naval assets to escort those grain ships in and out, much like we did in iraq in the 1980s. watch for that >> we will admiral james stavridis, thank you. the ukrainian men's national soccer team is giving the country a brief reprieve from all of the war realities they crushed scotland earlier this week, and now they're just one win away from qualifying for world cup. after the game, president volodymyr zelenskyy thanked the squad for what he called two hours of happiness fans from all over the world
12:36 am
celebrating the win. in kharkiv, a group of soldiers watch the game on a phone there. they liked it, as you can see. excuse me. only once has ukraine qualified for world cup. that was 16 years ago. ukraine set to play wales this sunday in the european playoff final. the winner of that game will take on the united states when world cup play begins in november an escaped inmate in texas died in a shootout with police after he killed a grandfather and four of his grandchildren. cops say they believe the man killed the family members at a rural cabin two hours north of houston, then stole their truck. the convicted murderer, gonzalo lopez, escaped from a prison bus just three weeks ago we covered it here they told us he stabbed the bus driver and ran off into rural farmland they now say they found him driving the stolen truck just last night hundreds of miles
12:37 am
from that cabin. they started following him, they say, and popped his tires with spike strips police say then he started shooting at them out of the truck window with an ar-15 style gun. the cops say he eventually crashed the truck, as you can see. got out and ran away while shooting at police and that, police say, is when officers shot him and killed him. the fugitive killed five family members of the collins family. according to friends who know them, the children ranged in age from 11 to 18. the oldest had just graduated school last week friends of the victims spoke at a news conference. they say the family is devastated one of them got emotional talking about the kids >> those kids were bright shining stars, and we coached them through baseball. and these next few days are going to be tough on all of us
