li. i'm craig melvin. thank you for watching. money. the picture that tells the justice department's story of what it found at mar-a-lago. i am shepard smith, this is the news on cnbc. 100 documents with classified markings in 13 boxes. why the justice department contends there is evidence that records were concealed and removed. what it means for former president trump. policing columbus release video of a third officer involved shooting in eight days.
4:01 am
this one deadly. the frame by frame body cam video showing what happened when cops arrived to serve a warrant. water crisis in jackson, mississippi drags on. >> this has been an issue for me since i came down here in 1991. i was always told not to drink that water. >> the white house and a promising federal hope. the city's mayor joins us to answer questions about the decades of trouble. a national crisis on the road. >> we have to redesign our race. >> the actions cities are taking in response to more people being killed in car crashes. what is different about the new covid boosters just authorized? u.n. inspectors arrive at the nuclear power plant in ukraine. and the new study on what the blue light from screens is doing to our bodies.
4:02 am
top-secret documents at mar- a-lago were likely moved around and hidden from federal investigators who were urgently trying to get them back for months. that s the new and explosive accusation from the justice department in a court filing late last night. the doj claims it has evidence that the stash of documents was likely concealed and removed from a storage room at mar-a lago to obstruct the federal investigation into the missing records. the justice department releasing this evidence photo from the fbi search earlier this month. federal agents say they found these documents inside former president trump's office in a container. you can see the folders are clearly marked top-secret and secret. those of the highest levels of possible classification in america. in other words, america's most closely guarded secrets. some of the documents were so sensitive that investigators needed to get higher security
4:03 am
clearance themselves just to look through them. according to the doj, mr. trump was under federal subpoena to hand over these very documents. but he did not. according to the fed, we are now learning from the filing that just two months before the fbi search, the trump legal team returned a stash of top secret documents. they claimed that was all they found after a diligent search of mar-a-lago. but when fbi agents came knocking on august 8th they found more than 100 classified documents still inside. some of them in mr. trump's own office in his desk. the feds say that is more than twice the amount of classified documents that they received from the trump team back in june. the doj's bombshell court filing -- and determine whether any of them is protected by executive privilege and off-limits to investigators.
4:04 am
we begin tonight's coverage with cb and c washington correspondent. >> reporter: the doj is arguing and its filing here that there is no need for a special master and that it would actually harm national security because it could block intelligence officials from determining the risks that may have resulted from exposure of these highly sensitive documents. they're also arguing that trump claimed he declassified the documents doesn't hold water, and part, because trumps home lawyers didn't say anything about declassification or executive privilege in their exchanges with government officials about all of this over the summer. anyway, they say trump doesn't have the right because it'll belong to him. under the law they belong to the united states. not a former president personally. if the drug does go ahead they are asking to limit the scope of that to just the issue of attorney-client privilege. this filing also puts trumps legal team in an awkward position. the doj says on june 3rd --
4:05 am
assured the government in writing that trump employees had done a thorough search for any documents and -- from opening or looking inside boxes in a key storage room back on june 3rd -- about his record keeping habits. in a post on his social media site trump wrote, in part, terrible the way the fbi during the rate of mar-a-lago through documents haphazardly all over the floor. perhaps pretending it was me that did it. and then started taking pictures of them for the public to see. the trump team has until the top of the hour tonight, 8:00 p.m. eastern, to respond to the filing. the judge will hold a hearing on all of this at 1:00 p.m. tomorrow. the expectation is a decision on the special master issue will come sometime after that.
4:06 am
>> thanks very much. for legal analysis now, were you on the trunk legal team what would be her biggest concern from this filing? >> for one thing, the justice department mentioned that they have significant evidence of obstruction of justice. that is clearly a focus. i would also, if i was on the trump legal team, i'd be concerned about my own criminal liability because it appears that somebody on the trump legal team signed a false statement, false certification to the justice department. and then somebody made false verbal statements to the doj and the fbi. they have their own potential criminal liability themselves. >> the doj lawyers bent a lot of time in this filing arguing against appointing a special master. they referred multiple times to the nixon case law on executive privilege. did they need the burden of what is needed to convince this judge? >> i think any reasonable judge yes.
4:07 am
i have to say that the executive privilege argument why the trump team is very bizarre and unprecedented. they are essentially saying that the executive branch should receive its own documents back and asserting executive privilege against the executive branch. it is like if one of my clients wanted his own documents back and i said no, attorney-client privilege. it is his own privilege. it is bizarre to invoke executive privilege against executive branch. >> the former head of the doj's counterintelligence section tweeted today, based on the doj filing it is hard to imagine no charges in this case. and the only question really is how many defendants will there be? do you agree. >> i think it is likely that there are going to be charges here. i am always more cautious than a lot of other commentators out there. i will just say, if this was my client, if mr. trump was my client i would tell him he is
4:08 am
likely to be indicted and he should plan accordingly. >> what you mean plan accordingly? the former president of the united states likely to be indicted. how do you plan for that when he has had a hard time getting decent lawyers? >> not only get a legal team, you need to find and pay better lawyers, but he also needs to, for example, prepare his businesses for the impact of an indictment. he needs to prepare his family. i spent a lot of time with clients trying to prepare them for what, you know, the impact it has on their life. it is quite substantial usually. there are press releases about you. it can turn someone's life upside down and mr. trump needs to be prepared. >> former president prepares for indictment. you wonder what that would look like. >> it is astounding. but that is, i think, where we are at. i have to say, really trump and his legal team have themselves to blame. back in may when they got that grand jury subpoena, if i was on that legal team i would say we are going to comply. they didn't do that and that is
4:09 am
why they are here. millions of americans could be eligible for an updated and new covid booster as early as next week. what is the difference? we will get there. the fda authorized the new shots today. a key step in the by demonstrations planned to get more people protected as workers returned offices and students head back to school. the agency signed off on moderna's poster for all adults and pfizer's shot for everybody 12 and older. both companies report their updated vaccines target the omicron sub variant that is running wild right now. in addition to the original covid strain. now it is up to the cdc to weigh in. the agency's advisory panel is scheduled to vote on the plan tomorrow. some health experts warn the new shots might not make a huge impact long-term since the virus is constantly evolving. at the fda's top vaccine regulator and since it is not the case. >> the public can rest assured that a great deal of care has been taken i the fda to ensure that these updated boosters
4:10 am
meet our rigorous safety effective and manufacturing quality standards for emergency use authorization. >> dr. peter marx added the risks of long covid alone should be reason enough for all -- united nations inspectors heading into the war zone to try to prevent a nuclear catastrophe in ukraine and across europe. they arrived in the city of separation to inspect europe's largest nuclear power plant. for months now russian troops have occupied that plant, allegedly forcing the staff to work at gunpoint. ukrainian officials have accused the russians of turning the nuclear power plant into a veritable military base. and using it as a shield to launch artillery strikes and hide military vehicles inside. because the ukrainians obviously can't fire back. nbc's josh letterman was there when inspectors arrived. truck for weeks the international community has
4:11 am
been demanding that u.n. nuclear inspectors be granted access to the nuclear power plant. today we watched the convoy of u.n. vehicles rolling in as they prepare for a perilous last leg of the journey to the power plant in russian occupied territory where there has been shelling for weeks. i spoke with the director general as he arrived here. he told me he is confident they can carry out this mission safely. he also told me that despite any potential efforts by russia to conceal what has been going on there, he is confident that they will have a very good sense of what the situation is by the time they finish this mission. which he says he expect it will take several days and also hoping over the longer-term to establish a permanent presence here so the world has eyes and ears on what has turned into a major flashpoint in the war in ukraine. do you believe the russians will let you see what is really happening? >> we are a team of very experienced people.
4:12 am
we will have a pretty good idea. of what's going on. >> reporter: this nuclear crisis playing out just north of where ukraine has launched a major counteroffensive to start to reclaim territory in the south of ukraine and push the russians out of the area. russia claiming today that it has been an unsuccessful counteroffensive so far, but ukraine says it is going according to plan. >> josh letterman for us. police in columbus, ohio serving an arrest warrant. they shoot and kill a man in his bed. the body can video released. what happened in the moments leading up to the officer opening fire. new york officials expanding the boundaries of time square. the new strategy aimed at preventing gun violence. remembering princess diana. 25 years after her shocking death, dedo you have a life insurance

4:33 am
situation reached crisis levels earlier this week when flooding damaged part of the main water treatment plant. the mayor is with us now tonight. thanks so much. will most jacksonians have water tonight, and if not, when? >> first of all, thank you for having me and lifting up this circumstance in my city. i cannot make assurances that most residence in jackson will have water. it is a difficult equation to be able to give a precise number of individuals. yesterday in the early hours we were able to establish some gains in our system. over the last evening the system actually regressed where the chemistry of the water coming into the plant, due to the flood, created more complications for a bad batch of water. the system then was, you know, caused distributing more water into the system in an effort to
4:34 am
have a better chemistry or better jar test of what they were producing. that meant that the residence were draining what was left at that point in the clear wells. this is happening, you know, at a time where we have support at the water treatment facility. we welcome their support with open arms because we believe that our residents are worthy of a full effort to correct this challenge. >> it don't mean to interrupt but our time is limited. every mississippian nose, and i'm one of them, there's been problems with the water for decades. staffing issues have been chronic and severe. the epa says there's no evidence the city made evident to recruit and train workers. why not? >> i do believe that is fully true. in fact, we've even gone as far as taking the epa's advice itself. efforts to, you know, work with the rural water association. efforts to bring in the mutual
4:35 am
aid agreement to bring the support of other cities that exchange those water professionals. we have 10 people training to be class a water operators, which our system requires, as we speak. it is not as simple of an equation to bring people in. if you have a college degree it takes two years to become a class a operator. if you are without a college degree it takes six years to be a class a operator. we've even looked at measures of how we attract retired employees to come back under the hourly rate that does not threaten their retirement. we tried to contract, and in fact, we do have some contract employees that don't clock in so it doesn't register the number of water professionals we have there. we're trying to look at a third- party operations firm. there are some complications in terms of the negotiation right now but i do not want to get
4:36 am
into. >> it is just such an awful look mr. mayor. our state has lasted so many categories, now we can't even get water to the people in our capital. here's a question. how would you describe your relationship with governor tate reeves and how much of a larger problem is on his administration? >> i don't think it would be fair to put the challenge -- this is years of work that needs to be done. >> has icon? how may times have you conversed in the last year? >> not many. >> like a handful? one or two times? have you spoken with him at all
4:37 am
during this crisis? >> i did speak with him yesterday and i was grateful for that communication. i think there is a time to review how often we talk, but i want to focus on the collaboration that is taking place. that is what i have to focus on. >> my sister is lawyer. by way of example she is in a law office with toilets that don't flush, is schooled on the street offering showers for people, and a lot of people with kids just heartsick. it's been going on so long most jacksonians can remember when water wasn't a problem. all the best to you and your city, thank you. >> thank you very much. officials in cities across the country are lowering speed limits as deaths from car crashes sore all of a sudden. federal transportation officials released new numbers earlier this month. look at them. they show traffic deaths hitting a 20 year high in the first three months of this year. national highway traffic safety administration estimates more

impact in terms of safety. >> reporter: the institute of transportation engineers reports if you are working in the street and you're hit by a car going 32 miles an hour you have a 25% risk of death. that risk drops to 10% when the car is going 23 miles an hour. according to the national highway safety traffic administration the number of people dying in car crashes started declining in 2017. then rose when the pandemic started in 2020. transportation secretary pete buttigieg calls it a national crisis. >> it is disproportionately impacting some americans more than others. people of color, native americans, low-income communities, people in rural areas are more likely to die on our roads. >> reporter: this month speed limits are being lowered in tacoma, washington. madison, wisconsin. and port st. lucie, florida. in new york the governor assigning a new law authorizing cities and towns to lower speed limits to 25 miles an hour. is that all they have to do? lower the speed limits to fix this issue? >> speed limits are an important part of the package but it needs to be coupled with
4:40 am
redesigning our roadways. >> reporter: he says in parts of chicago roots of been narrowed, speed bumps are on the ground, and warning signs are up. >> those changes upon a long way towards mckay people drive more safely. >> reporter: here in chicago, different parts of the city, they have speed cameras that are up. get a ticket if you are going six miles an hour over the speed limit. this is generating millions of dollars for the city so naturally people are complaining. there is a pitch to move it from six miles an hour to 10, but it is staying at six. >> same in new york. hate them. 25 years ago today, on a late-summer night in paris, the world shook as news of princess diana's death filtered out. we will never forget it. tonight, reflecting the life she lived, and the legacy she left. the wounded -- killed hundreds of native americans hudo you have a life insurance policy you no longer need? now you can sell your policy - even a term policy - for an immediate
