6:02 am
me. just 60 minutes from now we could get an answer from the u.s. supreme court on two huge issues. first is there a constitutional right to same sex marriage. plus obamacare. if they broke the law by offering it to familyiesfamilies, more than six million people could see their subsidies disappear. we could have answers in the next hour. also major developments in the manhunt for two escaped killers. and the second prison employee charged with helping them escape maybe without even knowing it. according to prosecutors palmer gave the inmates a screwdriver and pliers to fix an electrical box behind their cells.
6:03 am
palmer is accused of providing the contraband and trying to cover it up. he allegedly accepted paintings from the men as payment. after the escape palmer allegedly burned or buries those paintings to destroy the evidence. and are the killers now armed? searchers operateing on the assumption that they may have stolen guns from the cabin. >> reporter: officials have been operating under that assumption that these escapees are armed, especially considering the number of seasonal hunting cabins in this area. yesterday at a press briefing officials told us that most of these cabins have weapons inside. however, it's impossible to tell if these men actually took weapons because there's no inventory of all the weapons in all the cabins in this area.
6:04 am
as the vrgsinvestigation in owls head continues, the investigation at clinton correctional facility is heating up. a second corrections officer arrested in connection with that jailbreak now out on bail. 57-year-old prison guard gene palmer expected to plead not guilty to charges of promoting dangerous prison contraband tampering with evidence and misconduct. the guard allegedly carrying frozen hamburger made embedded with tools to the escapees. officials say palmer who worked in the cell block that housed the two convicts was actingal at the request of joyce mitchell who hid the tools in the meat and brought it into the jail. palmer's lawyer telling cnn his client was unaware that there were hacksaw blades and drill bits inside that meat. he failed to screen the meat through a metal detector
6:05 am
violating prison policy. >> he was conned by joyce mitchell. she duped him. he knows that he made a mistake and he shouldn't have done what he did. >> reporter: officials searching palmer's home finding the tools he gave to the prisoners including a screwdriver and needle nosed pry er edd pliers. >> he allowed them to go into the back of the cell into the cat walk area and fix the breakers that were there so they could use their hot plates and cook their food. >> reporter: palmer telling investigates he supervised the prisoners doing the work and took the tools back before tend of his shift. court documents also show that after the escape palmer burned several paintings given to him by tinhe inmates. he also tried burying some of them in the woods near his home. he is out on $25,000 bail and
6:06 am
due in court later today. >> joyce mitchell's attorney denies he was having a sexual relationship with inmate david sweat. listen to what he told cnn's jason carroll. >> he has indicated to me and to my knowledge to the police that she never had sexual relations with david sweat. and that's all i'm going to comment on, because she has indicated that i believe on multiple occasions or denied that on multiple occasions. >> he did, however, refuse to comment on whether mitchell was involved with richard matt. an exinmate tells cnn there is no doubt in his mind that mitchell was involved. >> giggling like a schoolgirl. it's like when the superstar football player asks a girl out on a date for the prom or something like that. i believe they were getting it on in that back room.
6:07 am
i believe the way they were acting with each other that it was going on for a while. you know what? it was too comfortable. you know what i mean? i believe that his whole plan was to get out of there. >> joining me now to discuss all after this james conway. thank you, sir, for being with me this morning. >> thank you for having me. >> is there any doubt in your mind that something was going on between sweat and joyce mitchell? >> no. it was too close of a relationship. >> are you surprised no one notice this side relationship as in her supervisors? supposedly she was bringing in baked goods and she was giving them special favors and everybody on that cell block knew she was having some sort of relationship with sweat. >> i am. based on what i read there was an investigation some time ago
6:08 am
based on an inappropriate relationship and no action was taken subsequent to that. >> you wonder why no action was taken when this had to be going on for a very long time. was it just a faulty investigation? >> i don't have all the facts. i do know the vast majority of the staff that work for the department of corrections in new york are professional and upstanding and dedicated. we have a few that fall prey to the manipulation that these two inmates appear to have done. >> i'd like for you to take a look at this picture. it shows the manhole where the inmates escaped from in relation to the prison. an ex enmateinmate says you can see the manhole from the tailor shop windows. should that be a concern? should the windows be covered? >> no i don't think so. the way these old prisons were constructed, there are high-rise cell blocks.
6:09 am
you never expect in a situation like clinton or attyto have the inmates tunnel under them. >> we're now showing pictures of these tools that prison guard gene palmer not only allowed prisoners to use, but he said he supervised them. police say they later found these tools in his home. he also allegedly accepted paintings from these inmates and he burned or baur reeuried some of the paintings in his back yard i suppose to hide some of the evidence. do guards often take gift frgss from prisoners and bring them home like that? >> no. obviously the tools are not appropriate to be in the inmates' hands. but this frozen hamburger, is also not allowed.
6:10 am
inmates are not allowed to have raw meat. that's another serious breech that we've had that he even brought them in this meat. >> all right. thank you so much for joining me this morning. i appreciate it. just two hours from now mother emanuel will lay to rest the first of her nine parishioners gunned down by dylann roof. the funeral for 70-year-old ethel lance will be held in charleston. and the faithful gather for the traditional wednesday night bible study, a meeting that usually draws less than 20 people saw nearly 150 people join its ranks. victor blackwell live in columbia south carolina to tell us more. good morning victor. >> reporter: carol, good morning. in addition to the funeral of ethel lance, there will also be the funeral for sharonda
6:11 am
singleton. there will be continued observances today for the state senator and reverend clementa pinckney. after yesterday's viewing here at the state capital, there will be starting at 11:00 a.m. this morning a viewing from 11:00 to 4:00 at a church just outside of charleston at st. johns ame which is in ridgeland and tonight a wake from 6:00 to 8:00. we've seen so many people trying to show their respect and reverence for this pastor and state senator. a lot of people have been impacted not only by the horrific nature of the killing of the nine people but also the response and spirit of forgiveness by their relatives including south carolina senator tim scott. i want you to watch as he fought back tears while speaking from the senate chamber about a
6:12 am
conversation with a relative of one of those kills. watch. >> good caresd cares for his people. god still lives. i was amazed. he said with great enthusiasm and energy a sense of excitement that this evil attack would lead to reconciliation restoration and unity in our nation. those were powerful words. >> reporter: a very emotional scene there from the senate chamber. that's one angle of what's happening here. but there's also the treatment and what to do next with the confessed killer dylann roof. we're learning from a law enforcement source that the department of justice will likely pursue hate crime charges on the federal level.
6:13 am
some might ask he is charged now with nine counts of murder on the state level. will at the very least spend the rest of his life in prison if convicted, possibly face the death penalty, why add on the federal hate crime charge? we're learning that the department of justice, because this was such a horrific crime, nine people killed inside that church and the discovery of that raceist manifestomanifesto, they believe it is just to add hate crime charges to a defendant's docket there, that this is the case to do it. >> victor blackwell, thank you. add alabama to the states reviewing and in some cases remove confederate symbols in the wake of the church shooting.
6:14 am
governor bentley ordered four flags to be taken down at the state capital. here's what he said. >> it is offensive to some people because unfortunately it's like the swastika. some people have adopted that as part of their maybe hillate filled groups. that's a shame. >> a spokeswoman from bentley said the governor did not want the presence of the flag to distract from lawmakers' work on the state budget. later on i'll talk with mississippi congressman bennie thompson. thompson will join me at 9:45 eastern right here on cnn. still to come in the "newsroom"noom "newsroom" president obama boots a heckler from the white house. >> no no no no.

6:21 am

6:22 am
president obama be protested and heckled at events but certainly it is very rare to see this happen within the white house. a lot of these guests are invited and prescreened. set up an interesting moment. >> it certainly did. i want to turn to the rulings that we could see from the supreme court. is the white house prepared? >> reporter: they're holding their breath. two of the decisions have huge irch cases for the white house and president obama's personal legacy. it could do a lot to turnish that legacy. also could do a lot to boost it specifically on obamacare. this is obama's key domestic pooes piece of legislation. the white house is really warned that 6.4 million americans that receive these tax credits could be really left in a lurch. they have warned that would cause the insurance marketplaces

. and good morning. i'm carol costello. thank you so much for joining me. it has all the makes of a great campaign video, a politician surrounded by his wife and children a casual family gathering in the back yard except it fell a little flat for louisiana governor bobby jindal who decided to secretly videotape his children's reaction at the very moment he told them he was running for
6:29 am
president. take a look. >> we have decided we are going to be running for president. that's good? is that a surprise? or did you pretty much expect it? [ inaudible ] you already figured it out? >> yeah. [ inaudible ] >> now, things are going to change a little bit. >> okay. so it was a nice try, but a little awkward, right? it might have helped if we could actually have seen jindal's face but his head was obscured by that tree branch. maybe this is a sign of the times, but it's an odd way to announce you're running for president. the internet which is never kind agrees. joining me now cnn's senior
6:30 am
washington correspondent and political reporter sarah murray. why did he announce his president with that video? >> i guess this is our youtube world, all unplugged. every moment is here for inspection. they're trying to believe create a unique moment. this was just the beginning of the video that he played yesterday before he came out to address this. they wanted to show he was a family man. it wasn't about him necessarily. i think they wanted to point out that he is a father of three. he's married. and he is also pointing out he's the youngest person in this republican field. he's 44 years old two weeks younger than marco rubio, actually. he's also trying to show he's a fresh face of the republican party. he gave a very interesting speech when he was announcing he went after some republicans. he also tried to show he would be a new brand, a new face of the republican party. he said something very interesting. take a listen. >> in case it's not clear by
6:31 am
now, i am running for president without permission from head quarters in washington, d.c. [ applause ]. >> but rest assured, i am tanned rested and ready for this fight. >> he's tanned rested and ready. what he meant by was that was his way of saying he would add a bit of diversity to the republican party too. he was the first indian american governor in the u.s. kind of an interesting way to point out his differences with the rest of this very large republican field. >> as you might imagine, twitter went crazy upon those words i am
6:32 am
tanned rested and ready. the first thing you see on twitter is the hashtag bobby jindal is so white. >> the interesting thing is as jeff points out, bobby jindal does inject some diversity into the gop field. but that's not the area of voters he's trying to appeal to now. when you listen to his speech he talked about how he need to not be hyphenated americans. and that grantimmigrants need to better assimilate with society. that's not a pitch that's going to bring in new voters. that is a pitch to the core of the republican party, to the folks that think if you should come to america, you should immediately speak english and act like every other white person in america. >> sort of what donald trump has been trumpeting right?
6:33 am
there's an interesting poll from fox news. donald trump continues to create headaches for the gop field. he's now second in a national poll from fox news behind jeb bush and one of only three republican candidates in double digits. only 29% of gop primary voters consider him a serious candidate. what do you make of that? >> one of the reasons his numbers are so high compared to the other republicans is that he's well known, a known quantity. it's also a bit of the none of the above response to these pollsters. people are not sure who they want to be president, so they're picking donald trump. he's talking a lot about what people want to hear. the reality is at the end of the day here he is most likely the candidate of the summer a bit of a protest candidate, if you
6:34 am
will. he make no mistake, carol. he will be a factor in this race because he is criticizing other republicans and particularly jeb bush. so he will be a factor in this race. >> cesar he can put those other candidates' feet to the fire. >> that is the real concern we are hearing from republicans. it's not that they're worried donald trump is going to win a state. it's not they're worried he's going to win the nomination. it's that he could be on that debate stage and other candidates lose the opportunity to have that big break-out moment. could you imagine if a jeb bush is able to have a break out moment when they're up against donald trump? it is very difficult to see how that will happen. >> it will be an interesting

rosa flores has more for you. >> reporter: he killed three people injured dozens and terrorized the nation in the '90s. eric rudolph better known as the olympic park bomber made the fbi's ten most wanted list after bombing the olympic park during the 1996 summer olympics and later bombing two abortion clinics and a lesbian bar. henry shuster and coauthor of hunting eric rudolph followed every step of the manhunt. >> he was smart. he was sly. >> reporter: rudolph managed to evade authorities for five years in the thickly-wooded appalachian wilderness of north carolina. early on authorities say he never stayed in a camp for too long always on the move and one step ahead of search teams. >> everybody's watching their houses. >> reporter: nearby residents
6:41 am
were on alert while hundreds of agents combsed the woods looking for tracks. but the trail ended cold year after year. >> eric rudolph had home field advantage. he'd been playing in these woods since he was a kid. he camped in them since he was teenager. >> reporter: he turned up at the home of the owner of a health food store trying to buy food. tone the owner recognized him and refused. but when the owner returned two days later he found that 75 pound of food and his truck were missing, on the table five $100 bills. he killed bears and sal la-- he would

break into cabins and bundle himself up in piles of leaves. >> he was living off the grid before he actually had to go off the grid. it was as though he had been prepared for this. >> reporter: despite years of searching for rudolph deep in the woods, he was finally arrested dumpster diving in the back of a grocery store. >> it was luck. they had given up the hunt the chase. and he fell into their laps. >> reporter: after his arrest rudolph described his chase with police as a long camping trip that lasted five years. investigators in upstate new york hunting for david sweat and richard matt hope it takes significantly less than half a decade to catch these two wanted fugitives. and still to come on the "newsroom," the boston bomber speaking out for the first time,
