12:02 am
claimed he invaded ukraine because nato was getting too big and too strong in his own backyard? how did that work out? today, nato formally invited sweden and finland to join its military alliance. the move is a significant blow to putin himself, and boosts nato's eastern flank. finland shares an 800 mile border with russia. the finns also have a solid military that has trained extensively with american and nato troops. today's decision also means that sweden is ending more than 200 years of military neutrality. today the secretary-general of nato spoke to reporters in the madrid. they asked whether ukraine could join nato next. he said the alliance would offer other types of support. >> allies will continue to provide major military international help. also it's very clear that allies are prepared for the long haul. wars are unpredictable, but we
12:03 am
have to be prepared for the long haul. >> ukrainian president, vladimir zelensky, released of this video today. he says it shows the moment a missile, a russian missile, hit a crowded shopping center in central ukraine on monday. zelensky says moscow had wanted to kill as many people as possible in an act of what he called state terrorism. ukrainian officials say the attack killed at least 18 and injured dozens of others. in a moment we'll hear from the former nato supreme allied commander, admiral james to read it. first, senior white house correspondent kayla toussie traveling with the president in madrid. putin is now responding. >> he is, shep. vladimir putin this evening warned russia would respond in kind if nato's footprint expanded north, and he suggested he could pursue different tactics in ukraine to achieve his goals, which he said have not changed. nato, for its part today in madrid, said that russia's actions to date have permanently altered the
12:04 am
security, doubling down on defense of allied territory and multiplying by eight the number of nato forces ready to deploy quickly. the united states is adding an undisclosed number of troops to the 100,000 already stationed in europe, in poland the first permanent forces on the eastern flank to serve as sort of a hub for deployment in the region. new road paving brigades in romania and the baltics and various air defense systems and personnel in western and southern europe. tonight president biden said the threats are coming from all directions. >> hooton has shattered peace in europe and attacked the very tenets of rule-based order. the united states and its allies are going to step up. >> today mr. biden met with turkey's president. before the cameras they discussed the global supply of oil and grain. president hartigan has said he would again request new f-15 fighter jets from mr. biden in

12:06 am
ukraine? >> this is a very good day for nato and a very good day for the west, and a very good day for sweden and finland to come and join the alliance. let's put this in business terms, shep. this is cnbc. this is an acquisition. it is a blue-chip acquisition. it has very high cash flows. it is two companies, if you will, that are ready to go. they are turnkey operations on security, and they share a long border, which does nothing but complicate vladimir putin's security planning. look, i commanded these troops in afghanistan. they were part of our nato forces that went to afghanistan. they were part of the war over libya, high tech, super professional, deeply capable, and long history of antipathy to russia. we want them on the team.
12:07 am
bottom line, great day for nato. >> are you concerned at all, admiral, that this could lead to increased aggression from the russians? >> i'm not, because putin is in the process of breaking his phalanx, if you will, on ukraine. ukrainians have fought him to a standstill, and he's now forced to consolidate all of his troops in this relatively small strip of territory on the southeast corner of ukraine. he has no capacity to go after sweden or finland or estonia or latvia or lithuania. again, hooton has been a clever tactician at times. he is a dumb strategist, because he's back to his nation into a strategic corner that's going to be very hard to get out of. >> admiral james starides, thanks very much. we just got brand-new information from the january 6th committee, a very important subpoena has now been issued to someone inside the former president's inner circle. we'll have that information coming up for you in just a few moments.

12:31 am
it's the bottom of the hour. time for the top of the news. the house committee investigating the january 6th insurrection has just subpoenaed the former trump white house counsel pat cipollone. in a statement that just came out moments ago, the committee leaders wrote, the select committee's investigation has revealed evidence that mr. cipollone repeatedly raised legal and other concerns about president trump's activities on january 6th and in the days that preceded it. the committee says it needs his testimony on the record. it comes after a former top aide to the former white house chief of staff, mark meadows, testified publicly just yesterday, and a string of denials today. longtime trump ally rudy giuliani and former white house chief of staff mark meadows both deny they ever asked for pardons after the insurrection. yesterday, his aide, cassidy hutchinson testified under oath that they did. the former chief
12:32 am
of staff has refused to answer questions under oath in front of the committee. they voted to hold him in contempt, but the justice department declined to charge him. after the hearing, former white house lawyer eric hirschman also cast some doubt on hutchinson's testimony about a handwritten note. she said she jotted this one down and meadows and hirschman dictated to her language they wanted the president to include in a statement as writers breached the capitol. hirschman says he actually wrote that note. and as we reported here last night, secret service agents are disputing hutchinson's claim that former president trump reached for a steering wheel and lunged at an agent inside the presidential suv. she testified, another white house aide told her it happened after the president learned he would not be going to the capitol with the rioters. hutchinson says the agent he allegedly lunged at was in the room when she heard the story, and that he did not deny it then. they do agree he was angry and
12:33 am
wanted to go to the capitol. cnbc senior congressional correspondent elon moye tracking the fallout tonight hurco a critical subpoena justin from that committee. >> the committee has been calling for white house counsel pat cipollone to testify for weeks, if not months now, and tonight it finally sent that official request. in a statement, the committee said that it appreciates mr. cipollone's earlier informal engagement with that investigation, but it now needs to hear from him on the record. the subpoena comes after that dramatic testimony yesterday from white house aide cassidy hutchinson, who claimed that cipollone told her he was worried about it and charged with, quote, every crime imaginable if trump went to the capitol on january 6th. earlier today, committee vice chair liz cheney dismissed cipollone's fear that his cooperation could violate executive privilege. she tweeted, his previously
12:34 am
stated concerns about the institutional interest of his higher office are outweighed by the need for his testimony. now the statement could also be key to bolstering hutchinson's credibility as a witness after several people have been disputing her testimony. the secret service told me that the committee did not reach out in the days leading up to yesterday's hearing about hutchinson's account of what happened in that presidential suv. an agency spokesman says it plans to formally respond to those allegations and will make any member of the agency available to the committee. still, hutchinson's lawyers are defending her actions. in a statement she said she stands by the testimony she provided yesterday under us to the select committee and embers of the committee themselves said that they, too welcome anyone with information to come forward. >> nobody is challenging the central material facts of her testimony that donald trump and mark meadows were perfectly aware that there were armed people in the crowd. i fully expected that ms. hutchinson would come under attack, but from my estimation, she spoke with entire
12:35 am
credibility and authenticity yesterday. >> the committee says it's gotten a wealth of new information since these hearings began, but cipollone could be a critical witness if he cooperates. >> elon moyen north dakotaens and the company with ties to, beijingthanks ve china is buying up some american farmland. the question is, is china doing that to spy on the u.s. military? some lawmakers and intel officials say it's a real concern. the question centers around a controversial land sale between north dakotans and a company with ties to beijing. cnbc's ehmann jabber's spoke with some key players behind that deal. >> reporter: this is grand forks air force base in north dakota, home of some of the nation's most sensitive technology, including the ark you 4 global hawk surveillance drone, and this property sits just 20 minutes down the road, more than 300 acres of prime
12:36 am
farmland. earliee intelligence community that the deal should br e blockh dakotans who owned parcels here sold this land for millions of dollars to a subsidiary of a chinese company that says it wants to build a corn milling plant. now that transaction has come under scrutiny here in washington, d.c. where some in the intelligence community warned that the deal should be blocked because it could offer chinese spies unprecedented access to the american base. >> reporter: it's an only in america kind of fight, hitting the property and economic rights of a community against national security warnings from high-ranking officials in the nation's capitol. the chinese company at the heart of the controversy is based in shandong, china. it's american subsidiary says the company is not a threat. >> we are under u.s. laws. i'm an american citizen. i grew up my whole life here, and i'm not going to be an

concerns they said if you see something, say y something. espionage activities or be associated with a company that does. >> reporter: the city's mayor says he just wants to do business. >> it's a $700 million plant, so that would really be the largest single investment in the city's history. the fbi didn't say there was any immediate concerns. they said if you see something, say something. >> reporter: the air force hasn't taken any official position on the chinese investment, but an air force major composed and alarming memo in april, seen by cnbc, laying out what he believes to be the intelligence threat . he wrote, some of the most sensitive elements of grand forks exist with the digital uplinks and downlink's inherent with unmanned air systems and their interaction with space based assets. the air force says major jeremy fox was only speaking for himself. he's not the only one with security concerns. in a report released may 26th, the u.s. china economic and security review commission wrote, the location of the land, close to the base, is particularly convenient for
12:38 am
