w actly what we're doing with fort magic. i know what our plan is. i know where we are going forward. and i'm just really excited about the future for our company. it's midnight on the east coast and 9:00 p.m. on the west. i'm shepard smith and this is the news on cnbc. the former president appearing before the new york attorney general. he declines to answer questions in the civil investigation against his business practices. and alleged plot to kill

12:02 am
and stonewalling investigators as he faces mounting legal pressure on multiple fronts. mr. trump pumping his fist in the air as he headed out of the new york attorney general's office after his deposition today. the ag investigating whether trumps company artificially devalued his company to avoid paying taxes. mr. trump refused to answer questions for six hours. in the past, mr. trump has refused to take the fifth and has suggested that it means you are guilty. >> taking the fifth, i think it is disgraceful. >> the mob takes the fifth amendment. if you take the fifth met it means you are guilty.
12:03 am
>> the fbi searched his home in florida, and the slew of investigations he is facing has prompted him to change his mind on taking the fifth amendment. he says, quote, that when you are facing an unprecedented witchhunt by prosecutors and the fake news media, you have no choice. many republicans have pounced and are accusing democrats of weaponizing the justice department. we don't know for exactly what the feds were looking. we do know that the search warrant was related to classified documents that the former president allegedly kept and brought to mar-a-lago after he left office. the times has previously
12:04 am
reported that some of those records are so sensitive that they can't even be described in public. senate majority leader mitch mcconnell is demanding transparency from the justice department on why the feds needed to search president trump's home. notably, former president trump and his lawyers could release the search warrant and provide more details. they have declined to do so. last night house republicans had dinner with former president trump at his golf club in bedminster, new jersey. they said that he had made his decision on whether he will run again in 2024, but lawmakers said that he didn't reveal what that decision is. let's bring in albert gonzales. he led the doj under former president george w. bush. sir, is there any surprise that the president would plead the fifth in this case?
12:05 am
>> there is very little that former president trump does that surprises me. it is within his constitutional right to do this in this legal proceeding. >> on the fbi's search of his home, should we read anything into the fact that it was the national security division of the doj that requested the warrant? >> no, listen. obviously this was a historic act by the fbi and the department of justice, and it's going to create a great deal of speculation about why this was necessary at this point in time. but who knows? i think they often get involved in these kinds of investigations when it relates
12:06 am
to high-class information. it is just pure speculation on my part. >> the justice department is, as you know, under extreme pressure to provide some sort of explanation. you served as attorney general. is this particular call the right call? >> i think there is a long standing practice at the department to keep investigations, detailed investigations confidential. we do so so that nobody is subjected to charges who may be totally innocent. when you start talking about details about an ongoing investigation, you compromise that investigation. you want to be careful about that. obviously this is an unprecedented case. it could be possible -- i suspect that the attorney general michael up to the hill and meet with congressional leaders in private
12:07 am
conversations, at least make himself available. but again, the attorney general is going to have to be very, very careful on the kind of information that is conveyed even to congress. because we know that sometimes conversations that occur with members of congress, those conversations -- if anything compromises the investigation, that is the first priority, quite frankly. the attorney general has to navigate through this to ensure that at the end of the day the reputation of the department remains intact. >> alberto gonzales, thank you for your time tonight. $300,000. that is how much an iranian operative was ready to pay somebody to kill the former national security advisor john bolton. that according to justice department officials today. john bolton, a longtime harsh critic of iran. justice department officials say that this man was behind an attempt to kill him. they say that he is a member of
12:08 am
the iran revolutionary guard quds force. he is not in u.s. custody and there is very little chance he could ever be caught. here is how feds say the plot was hatched. he reached out to somebody he met over social media. he asked that person to take photos of john bolton for a book he was writing. that person put him in touch with somebody else who said he could take the photos, but that person turned out to be an fbi informant. eventually poursafi offered money to the informant to do the job. he even sent a photo of the money and told the informant that the money was for an upcoming job he had for him.
12:09 am
we just heard from john bolton. >> yes, that's right. he said that in all seriousness he is concerned that iranians are targeting additional u.s. officials. here is what he said. >> i think there are additional people who are vulnerable to these iranian efforts, and unfortunately i think that we may learn more. >> according to the affidavit, iranians were willing to pay much more money, $1 million to pay to kill another former trump administration official, former adviser . mike pompeo. because the person hired for this was an informant, there
12:10 am
was no chance for success, but that doesn't make the effort any less concerning. the justice department said that these kinds of threats in the united states are rising. >> we face a growing threat from terrorist regimes seeking to spread across borders it, including into the united states. this is an appalling example. >> according to an fbi affidavit, poursafi told the u.s. source that he didn't care what method was used to kill bolton, and not to worry if the murder was traced back to the iranian government. in november, the source traveled back to washington, d.c. poursafi allegedly said that a parking garage would be a good place to kill bolton, but the assassination of course never took place.
12:11 am
>> thanks very much. inflation is still very high, but for the first time in a long time there might be reason for cautious optimism that things could be easing. the labor department reports today that consumer prices jumped 8.5% in july compared to a year ago. that is a hair lower than the 9.9% year-over-year reported in june. lower energy costs really help drive the overall cost down. the labor department reports that the cost of gas and airfares down nearly 8% from a year ago. used cars down 8%. but other necessities still on the rise. pay more for electricity, food and rent compared to a month ago. still, president biden says it is a promising sign in the fight against inflation. >> we are seeing a stronger labor market where jobs are moving and americans are working. we are seeing some signs that inflation may be going down. >> but the president does warn
12:12 am
that americans could still face economic headwinds in coming months, citing the russian invasion of ukraine and pandemic shutdowns in asia. steve, gas prices are down but food and rent are up. how are we supposed to see this? >> so the headline was that they are both better than expected, but they are both too high and the result of a combination of headwinds and tailwinds hitting the economy. let me explain. you have gas prices falling as well as commodity markets. but some prices may be falling because consumers are having sticker shock. think of the airline fee, as you are talking about. they have fallen for two straight months now, but that is after they were up 38% year- over-year. some americans could be thinking twice about taking that trip because of those high fares. then more than sticker shock is just affording essentials. gas prices are down but remain
12:13 am
high. housing and medical care are both elevated as well. so americans have to be careful with disposable dollars. this inflation reduction method is going to take some doing. the question remains whether it ends up in a recession or a hard landing. today though, a little more hope that we might squeak out with a soft landing. >> steve, thanks very much. the crash that killed kobe bryant at the center of the trial that began today in los angeles, but not over how it happened. this is about what l.a. county first responders allegedly did after they arrived on scene. as uvalde, texas officials prepare for kids to go back to class, governor abbott promises a new addition to every school in the district. china ending its military drills near taiwan, but could today's comments by speaker pelosi change this? the facts, the truth, the

12:15 am
of kobe bryant after he died in a helicopter crash along with his 13-year-old daughter and seven other passengers that's the question at the center of the high profile lawsui did first responders share gruesome photos of kobe bryant and his daughter after their death in a helicopter crash? kobe bryant's widow vanessa suing the police and sheriffs departments for a violation of privacy. vanessa bryant claims that deputies never should have had the photos in the first place. she says they took the photos for personal use, not for any investigation. in the lawsuit, bryant's legal team said that ms. bryant feels ill that first responders caulked at gruesome images of her deceased husband and
12:16 am
daughter. several first responders showed up to the carnage just days after the crash. a firefighter showed photos to coworkers at an award ceremony. attorneys for l.a. county say that first responders have deleted all those photos, and they us insist that none of them has ever been made public. let's turn to cnbc contributor. david , vanessa bryant is seeking compensation. if these photos never made it to the media or online, what chance does she have of winning this case? >> shep, there is a difference between legal analysis that i can perform and what americans think about. they put distinctions around this issue. if they believe that they have the evidence and facts here and that evidence was destroyed, i
12:17 am
think they are going to focus more on the fact that she is a grieving widow who lost both her husband and child in that crash. >> vanessa bryant believes they took these photos for personal reasons, not because they were evidence. how hard is that to prove? >> shep come in this case i don't think it is hard to prove at all, and that is because csi exists for a reason. you have investigators who work with these photos. i have cases where i have seen tens of thousands of photos like these. i can think of very few examples of one being taken by an officer, let alone a first responder. it is only a detective who might follow up with a photo, but first responders obviously have more pressing things to focus on. >> kobe is a legend in los angeles, no question about that. how difficult will it be to get a jury for this trial? >> it is federal court. federal authorities pick the juries, and they don't mess
12:18 am

12:35 am
we all knew about the 15 boxes of information that the former president allegedly took with him from the white house to mar- a-lago after he left office. the question is, for what exactly were the authorities searching when they spent a reported six hours or so inside the mansion yesterday morning and into the afternoon? that is the matter on which the journal is focusing on a story that dropped just a short time ago. sadie gorman is here. she covers the justice department for the journal and is one of the reporters who broke the story this afternoon. sadie, it is my understanding that from your reporting, after the news of the 15 boxes was relayed, somebody else had further information from inside that mansion. what can you report? >> reporter: well, we still have a lot of questions about what happened between june and august, but what we learned today was that some person familiar with these documents told investigators at some point during the time period
12:36 am
that there still may be more classified documents at mar-a- lago. the justice department who had been negotiating with trump over the return of these boxes, you know, basically started to doubt that the trump team was being totally truthful about the whereabouts of some of this material. >> it's your reporting that the justice department got specific information about where to look. >> reporter: we do know that the justice department and fbi agents searched three rooms, including a bedroom and an office and had meetings with trump attorneys. justice department officials had requested to search a storage area and requested that
12:37 am
the trump team put a stronger lock on the door to preserve what was in the room. >> they were able to convince a federal magistrate that what was inside the home was evidence of a crime. >> reporter: that's right. that's the standard that any fbi agent uses to search a house. it does not necessarily mean that they are planning to file criminal charges or that the investigation is wrapping up, but it does mean that there was enough there that they were able to get a federal judge to sign off and approve this search. >> whatever they took out of there, they didn't bring it away in fbi vehicles or anything like that. but you had a specific period. >> reporter: they tried to be as discreet as possible by wearing plainclothes.
12:38 am
they arrived in a ryder truck. they loaded up about 10 to 15 boxes into this ryder truck. so it was low-key. >> it looked low-key until the president sent out a tweet last night. the details came from the former president. there is still no indication, sadie, there is no indication yet of what exactly this relates to. whether it is something about january 6, whether it is about something specifically related to documents outside of january 6th. >> reporter: what we do know is that this search appears to be related to the justice department investigation into trump's handling of classified
12:39 am
material at mar-a-lago. he had taken some documents to the florida resort that he was required by law to turn over to the archives. so we know that that is what the search was in conjunction with. but this is just an escalation of one of several inquiries by the justice department into trumps conduct including in connection with the january 6th attack. so this is just sort of an interesting development in recent weeks. >> yeah, very interesting development. sadie gorman with the wall street journal. this story dropped just a little bit ago. sadie, thanks so much. more buses of migrants from texas arrive in new york city. this time officials were ready. but mayor adams says he is not having it. the accusation directed at texas governor greg abbott that he was quick to fire back on. one company in california
