6:00 am
the new england patriots, why i really know about it at all. >> it is popular? >> yeah, yeah. nfl football is popular there. and some teams including the patriots have gone into germany to try to recruit players to come play in the nfl. they go through colleges here and then play in the nfl. >> the things i learn from you. >> there you go. knowing is half the battle. cnn's coverage continues right now. very good morning to you. i'm jim sciutto. we're following major breaking news out of ukraine just in the last few minutes. heavy fighting has broken out today at the azovstal steel plant in the city of mariupol. surrounded by russian forces and widely that steel plant seen as the city's last line of defense. and where hundreds of civilians remain barricaded under constant russian bombardment. the mayor says he's lost contact with the ukrainian fighters there, that several civilians including more than 30 children
6:01 am
are still stuck inside there. awaiting evacuation. all this as russia says it will destroy nato convoys of weapons into ukraine. could that mean an escalation? also back home, outrage across the u.s., protests in several major cities following the release of a supreme court draft opinion that would overturn abortion rights in this country. more on that in just a moment. plus, politics, cnn projects that j.d. vance will win ohio's gop senate nomination, the race billed as the first test of trump's influence in the upcoming midterms. we'll break down the polling numbers, what they say. we will begin this morning with cnn international security editor nick paton walsh, he's reporting from kryvvi rih, ukraine. this news now about a possible russian advance now on that steel plant, cutting off the defenders there, but also hundreds of civilians still left behind. what do we know?
6:02 am
>> reporter: yeah, the precise number of civilians there unclear. there are apparently 30 children there, according to the mayor of mariupol who also broke the news of this renewed bout of fighting. some context here, over the last days we have seen probably north of 100 or so individuals emerge from the basement, multiple cat combs beneath the steel plant. we met some yesterday coming in yesterday to zaporizhzhia. this involves artillery, air strikes, you name it, frankly, and it does according to the ukrainian mayor of that city seem to suggest a renewed russian onslaught against it. there are ukrainian wounded soldiers within that steel plant, and, of course, possibly hundreds of ukrainian defenders still trying to hold russian forces off. there have been cease-fires that allow the evacuation of those 100 or so civilians, but clearly deeply perilous situation for those still trapped inside
6:03 am
there. there are evacuations under way, we're told by ukrainian officials again with the auspices of the united nations and the red cross, but not from the steel plant itself. instead of other civilians from around mariupol. that mechanism perhaps getting under way, really unclear. but no comfort for those inside the steel plant. we spoke to anna, who had spent the last two months there, with her 6-month-old son, a third of his life there yesterday, and here is what she had to say. >> now i smile because i can smile finally because all this month i was crying a lot, every day. emotionally it was very, very difficult. when we didn't have any food, water for him, we just took a candle and we heat water on the candle. now when there are a lot of noise, i have, like, reflex to
6:04 am
hide myself. >> what will you tell him when he's older? >> i just tell him that he was really very, very brave boy, very brave. he's very calm. he's the best child in the world. i can say. >> he's sleeping well. that's good. >> yeah, yeah, all the time. yeah. and also i can say that i don't want for him to repeat this story, or to repeat this story with his child. >> relief there, and also still the legacy of the sheer terror experienced in that basement. remember there are dozens of separate cat combs it seems in which there are possibly in some 30, 40 people still hiding there. numbers reduced because that first evacuation. that onslaught, though, brutal. the russian defense minister saying they have reliably
6:05 am
blocked the steel factory. this may be some russian bid to try and draw a line, a murderous line under what is happening there ahead of may 9th and the victory parades that russia want to have then. it also has been the situation where ukraine's had its vote as well and held the russians back. they have been encircled for quite some time now and this recent attack after the singular evacuation does appear to be some sort of escalation by moscow, jim. >> goodness. and so many left behind here and so many apparently the deliberate targets, once again the russian military, civilians. nick paton walsh, thanks so much. also this morning, the european union is preparing to hit russia with a new round of sanctions which could include banning the purchase of russian oil as well as holding individuals accountable for war crimes. and we have seen so much evidence of war crimes in the country in recent weeks. cnn's anna stewart joins me with more. the key questions here are what will be targeted, but crucially
6:06 am
on what timeline, right, will this be immediate or will it take weeks and months as many of these measures have taken so far? >> well, it really depends on what we see from the eu later this week. this is a major escalation. the most significant we have seen yet. and the biggest elements that have been proposed so far today was disconnecting russia's biggest banks, bank from the s.w.i.f.t. international payments network and a ban on russian oil this year. now, that is really significant. before this the current plan was to wean itself of russian oil by 2027. this plan gives them just six months. and the escalation we're seeing in the sanctions very much reflects the escalation of the conflict on the ground. the eu commissioner president said earlier today, take a listen. >> this sends another important signal to all perpetrators of the kremlin, we know who you are, we will hold you accountable, you're not getting away with this.
6:07 am
putin must pay a price, a high price for his brutal aggression. >> and the price here, jim, is really high. the eu is russia's biggest customer, last year in just in terms of oil it brought in $95 billion in revenue. but there is also a price here for the eu. that's something the kremlin spokesperson spoke about earlier today, he called the measures a double-edged sword. the eu will have to replace a third of their imported oil from somewhere else, it will hit some eu member states harder than others, those more reliant on russian oil. and that's why there is huge opposition earlier in the week. germany is on board. that's critical. look at this tweet from the hungarian spokesperson saying, we do not see any plans or guarantees on how a transition could be managed based on the current proposals and how hungary's energy security will be guaranteed. to enact this proposal, it has been to be a unanimous decision and there seems to be some
6:08 am
holdouts here. so bringing those on board will be important. if there are exemptions, extensions, that will weaken the impact that the sanctions are supposed to have. jim? >> and politics supreme here, right? remembering hungary's ties to the putin regime prior to the invasion. do those still survive in some way? anna stewart, thanks so much. politics now, former president trump's endorsement power holding strong so far. at least in big primaries in ohio and indiana last night. ohio, the trump-backed candidate j.d. vance won the gop primary for senate in the first big midterm test of trump's influence. >> i have absolutely got to thank the 45th, the president of the united states, donald j. trump. ladies and gentlemen, they wanted to write a story that this campaign would be the death of donald trump's america first agenda. ladies and gentlemen, it ain't the death of the america first
6:09 am
agenda. >> he didn't say former president, he said the president. vance will face off with tim ryan who won the democratic senate primary. cnn national correspondent kristen holmes is in columbus this morning. some signs that that endorsement was decisive, at least in the primary. what do we know? >> reporter: well, absolutely, jim. remember this, vance was trailing in the polls before he got the endorsement of the former president. it really boosted him and separated him in a field of many people who were trying to get that endorsement running on a trumpian agenda. so interesting to see that actually play out. there were a lot of eyes on that race. many believing that this is a litmus test for the former president. just how strong is his grip over the republican party? and if last night is any indication, at least here in ohio, president -- the former president has an enormous amount of influence and power, still
6:10 am
within the republican party. now, vance is going to run against as you mentioned democratic congressman tim ryan. ryan easily won his primary. the two are competing in the fall for retiring republican senator rob portman's seat, a critical seat republicans need to hold on to that if they want to take the majority. and the other race i want to point out here is that of the governor. the ohio governor, the incumbent, mike dewine, won his primary against more conservative challengers last night. he will face off in the fall against nan whaly. she won her primary, she's a democrat there, a former mayor of dayton, ohio. but the big thing here to keep in mind is this is just the beginning of an incredibly busy month of primaries and big question is how exactly will that trump effect go moving forward? what is that going to look like? sources close to the president say they believe that this is actually going to give a boost of momentum to other trump endorsed candidates across the country, something we'll be watching very closely to see if there is, in fact, a ripple
6:11 am
effect, jim. >> mike dewine did not have trump's endorsement, we should note that, won his primary as well. kristen holmes, thank you so much. i'm joined by the political reporter for, covering ohio politics. jeremy, good to have you on this morning. here's the question, primaries different from the general election. we don't know yet, but is vance in ohio the stronger candidate for republicans in the general as well as in the primary? >> well, that's certainly the argument that donald trump made when he made the endorsement for vance. he argued that vance was the strongest candidate to beat tim ryan this fall. in ohio, you have to understand that ohio is a solidly trump state, he won here both in 2016 and in 2020 by more than eight points. so vance enters the general election campaign as the favorite. even though tim ryan is perhaps the best candidate that the democrats could field, given that he has sort of a --
6:12 am
projects a blue collar image, similar to u.s. senator sherrod brown, the democratic senator from ohio. >> that is my next question, because sherrod brown, there is always this debate now currently, is ohio now largely a red state or is it still a purple state? sherrod brown, he won state wide in 2018 as a democrat. what is your view? is it too early to declare ohio reliably republican as we look forward to the midterms? >> i think the past couple of elections it has been reliably republican with the exception of sherrod brown. however, i learned a long time ago not to call elections before they happen. and tim ryan, you can't count him out. he has strong name i.d. from being a congressman from mahoning valley for many, many years. and there is also some
6:13 am
disappointment with j.d. vance. while yesterday was a very, very good day for trump, every candidate he endorsed in the ohio primary won last night, not just vance, but other congressional candidates like former aide max miller and madison gilbert. she -- basically it is going to be an interesting campaign that is going to be determined by money and both of them will have a lot of money going into the senate race. >> what does dewine's win in his primary state about the need for a trump endorsement? he did not. dewine is a governor who bucked the former president on issues for instance covid policy, and other stands. is that indig tiff at all as to where the party stands in ohio right now? >> as you heard, trump didn't endorse in that race. >> yeah. >> and dewine at least until
6:14 am
pretty recently has been considered to be a pretty conservative public official who has been in ohio for 40 years. and for the main reason that dewine won last night is because he had a split opposition, he had three candidates running against him, dewine got less than 50% of the vote. and if there was one candidate running against him, there is a much bigger chance that dewine would not have made it. but as it is, he did. >> jeremy pelzer, thank you for breaking it down. >> thank you. coming up next, enhanced security now at the supreme court as protests erupt over the draft opinion that shows the court may be set to overturn roe v. wade after some 50 years. we'll speak to a lawyer who is breaking down the domino effect this could set off in states across the country. plus, new surveillance video emerges of the alabama corrections officer who broke an inmate out of jail.

6:19 am
right now, officials are ramping up security measures around the supreme court after the leak of a draft opinion that would overturn abortion rights in this country after more than 50 years. that leaked decision sparked large protests in washington outside the court as well as in other cities around the country as you see there.
6:20 am
chief justice john roberts ordered an investigation into the leak, calling it an egregious breach of trust. the implications, though, for this country have overturned the landmark abortion rights decision are far and wide and to some degree unknown. experts are now contemplating how far anti-abortion lawmakers will go to put limits on lawful abortions performed in other states, if the draft opinion holds. vice president harris calls those efforts a direct assault on freedom. >> those republican leaders who are trying to weaponize the use of the law against women, well, we say how dare they! how dare they tell a woman what she can do and cannot do with her own body! >> joining us to discuss is rachel revulashay. rachel, good to have you today. you say that if this draft
6:21 am
opinion holds, and we may know in a couple of months, the u.s. will move to a divided country, some having a right to abortion, some not. they speak of 26 states that would immediately move to allow or greatly limit this. is that what we're looking to, that part of the country, women will be able to do it, part of the country they will not? >> i think that's right. 26 states are ready to ban almost all abortion if roe v. wade is overturned through a variety of means. some have passed trigger laws, laws that state once roe is no longer the law of the land, abortion will be banned, it will be criminalized. other states have kept their pre-roe laws on the books and the other half of the country, you have states that are actively protecting abortion rights, like connecticut, california. you have another set of states like potentially my state, pennsylvania, that won't rush to ban abortion, but may leave some of its restrictions on the
6:22 am
books. >> question, abortion, anti-abortion rights activists are already saying that they won't stop there, that their goal will be a nationwide ban. how does that play out in the courts? will we see court challenges in blue states, abortion right states if we want to call them that, that keep abortion rights laws on the books? will they then be challenged and what happens if they go to the highest comfurt, does a court uphold a state's right to decide this? >> it is interesting because justice alito's draft, the leaked draft, the thrust of that opinion is that abortion laws should be a topic governed by states, states that should decide whether or not to permit abortion and to what extent. and so i think it would be interesting if the supreme court in a challenge to a state that is seeking to expand abortion rights would then say a state doesn't have the power to do
6:23 am
that. if the federal government, if congress passes a national abortion ban, well, that would preempt state laws that seek to protect abortion rights. and the nature of whether or not that law is constitutional, that certainly could be litigated, but i think it would have -- it would be an interesting strategy to see what kinds of constitutional challenges would be brought against a nationwide ban. but in the meantime, states are going to be able to regulate per their own politics and i think you're right, i think that the end goal here for those who oppose abortion is not just to ban abortion within a state, but to ban it across the country. >> interesting, folks talk about congressional action to protect abortion rights. and certain political environment you could have congressional action to do the opposite. i want to ask about medication abortion. many pregnancies ended today perhaps half i think is the latest data by a pill, rather than visiting a doctor.
6:24 am
you say that the portability of medication abortion changes the access landscape. is that going to be a replacement in effect, and is there a potential legal challenge to that means of abortion? >> well, i think, you know, if roe v. wade is overturned, and states are able to ban abortion, they'll be able to ban all abortion. medicational abortion, surgical abortion, abortion by aspiration, and i think how medication abortion is changing the landscape for access is the rise of telehealth for medication abortion. since the fda has lifted a rule that required patients to go through a healthcare facility and pick up the first drug and medication abortion, since that rule has changed, there have been proliferation of virtual clinics that offer medication abortions through telehealth means. and so you can have a provider
6:25 am
in maine prescribe and send abortion pills to a patient in new mexico. that is really changing the question of access in fundamental ways. but there will always be a need for brick and mortar clinics. medication abortion is effective or proved by the fda before ten weeks of pregnancy. so after that point, you still need to -- you'll still need to find a healthcare facility if you're seeking to terminate a pregnancy. >> so many implications of this and we'll be digesting them for some time. rachel rebouche, thank you for breaking it down. >> thank you. still ahead this hour, a new watchdog report shows just how far the trump administration went to downplay u.s. intelligence about russian interference in the 2020 election. those findings coming up. print! print! print! do you suffer from cartridge conniptions? be conniption-free, thanks to the cartridgdge-free epson ecotank printer.r. a rididiculous amount of ink!

a damning new report from the department of homeland security's inspector general, the watchdog found that former president trump's dhs led by his former appointee for acting secretary appears to have deliberately downplayed russian interference in the 2020 election. why? because it could make trump look bad. cnn law enforcement correspondent whitney wild following the story. what are we learning about what exactly was altered and why?
6:31 am
>> what we're learning is this ig report addresses suspicions that zach cohen brought up in september of 2020 when he reported on whistle-blower complaint. this ig report is a damning look at the way the dhs office of intelligence and analysis dealt with intelligence related to russia's interference in the u.s. election. remember, the u.s. intelligence community announced during the 2020 campaign that russia was actively meddling in the election to weaken then candidate joe biden. at the time trump downplayed those findings and promoted false claims about biden that aligned with russia's disinformation efforts. the watchdog found the dhs office deviated from standard procedures when handling some of these intelligence products, for example, the ig says then acting homeland security secretary chad wolf participated in the review process multiple times, despite lacking any formal role in reviewing that product. that caused delays. the ig also followed up on a july 2020 meeting mentioned by a
6:32 am
whistle-blower who claimed wolf had asked for an intelligence report to be held because it made the president look bad. according to the notes of the meeting obtained by the ig, one top official wrote as 1 will hurt potus, kill it for his authorities. the official told the ig the notes meant that acting secretary -- the acting secretary had told him to hold that intelligence report because it would hurt the former president. wolf denied saying this, and added that he asked for the product to be improved because as written it simply wasn't valuable to the people who would be receiving and using that information, those are the state and local partners on the ground, who regularly use these intelligence products produced by dhs. the bottom line here is that the ig believes those delays and disruptions put the office at risk of creating the perception that the office was being politicized, jim. >> seems obvious when you look at it. and fits aa pattern of what we saw in 2016. thank you very much.
6:33 am
>> you bet. authorities say a corrections officer had a, quote, special relationship with the inmate and accused convicted murderer, by the way, she's helping escape an alabama jail. vicki white and casey white, no relation, disappeared last week when she said she was taking him for a mental evaluation, there was no such appointment. now a woman who testified against casey white in 2015 has a warning for vicki white. take a listen. >> casey white is very dangerous. he's dangerous to everybody that is around him. if she is still alive, get the hell out, run, run, run, run as far as you can and turn yourself in and contact somebody. like, do the right thing before you lose your life. or before somebody else does. >> a stark warning. cnn's ryan young is live in alabama with the latest. ryan, do we know where the manhunt stands?
6:34 am
>> reporter: yeah, that's the big question right now, jim. look, i find that sound bite so fascinating. this woman saw terror in a different way. you think about casey white being convicted and serving part of that 75 year sentence before being transferred to this other jail because he was facing capital murder charges. one of the reasons why i'm standing in the parking lot is not just to stand here, this is where the car was hidden, the getaway car and they drove from that jail, which is about three miles away, took about eight minutes to get here, and that ford edge was parked here. she purchased that a few days beforehand. they had that car ready to go. we believe there was surveillance video in this area that gave police and the sheriff deputies that clue that they were switching to that car. and now they say there may be extra weapons in the car as well. this turned this city upside down. people are saying that vicki was the kind of person you could trust, you could count on, for 17 years she worked at that jail and that facility there is still
6:35 am
baffled by what happened here. but when you see that video from the inside, her taking this man to the -- they were things done wrong in that situation. you're talking about a murder suspect being moved by one person. that's not how things happen here. usually it is two deputies in a van. that mental health evaluation that you talked about, never scheduled. she also said she wasn't feeling well on that day and was going to go to the doctor. that didn't happen as well. listen to the sheriff talk about the special relationship and some things they were figuring out. >> she has occasionally transported, you know, inmates with lesser offenses. but this particular guy and someone on these charges, no, that should have never happened, even if we had to delay getting him to court. my message would be vicki, you've been in this business for 17 years, you have seen this scenario play out more than once, and you know how it always ends. go ahead and end it now. get the phone call, 911, turn
6:36 am
yourself in, and help us get casey white back behind bars because you know that's where he's going to eventually end up. >> reporter: you know sometimes when you're doing stories with law enforcement, they can be really closed off. this is not the case here. everyone here is talking to us and giving us the information that, you know, we sort of need in terms of this investigation. they have been very forth coming. one of the reasons why i feel like they're just sort of shell shocked about how this played out so far. >> and they probably want the public's help in tracking them down. ryan young, good to have you on the story. still ahead, as europe prepares dramatic sixth round of sanctions against russia, russian forces continue relentlessly to bomb cities in ukraine, including civilians. we'll speak with ukrainian government adviser about the status of the war next.

[ marcia ] clearchoice dental implants gave me the ability to take on the world. i feel so much better, and i think that that is the key. this morning, the european union is proposing a new round of stiff economic sanctions against russia for its invasion of ukraine. these new sanctions include banning all oil imports from russia by the end of this year, faster than they had originally discussed, as well as cutting off russia's biggest bank from the s.w.i.f.t. international payments network, that has a big impact on banks and financial transactions. the sixth round would hold individuals accountable for alleged war crimes in bucha, as well as ban three more state-owned broadcasters from russia from the airwaves in europe. joining us now to discuss the
6:42 am
war, the west response, svetlana, the foreign policy adviser to the ukrainian deputy prime minister. thanks so much for joining us. >> thank you for having me. >> so, this is a tactic we have seen before throughout this invasion and prior to the invasion, trying to squeeze russia economically and these are not insignificant sanctions. but russia is leveling cities in ukraine today, attacking civilians today. will sanctions that take effect over the course of the next eight months make a difference in ukraine, in your view? >> sanctions are not enough. sanctions have to be also worked together with military support, with financing support, but sanctions, if voted the sixth package of the european union, it will be a huge blow on russian economy. let's be honest, embargo on oil is -- i would use russian -- it
6:43 am
will be the militarization of russian economy. indeed, eu is dependent on russian energy resources, but so is russia dependent on its capacity to buy energy resources and get its revenue. and oil revenues were the main wallet for the russian economy. so during the last two months, during this war, they have been getting 1 billion a month, a day for the resources. and oil revenues amounted to more than half of those revenues. so without a doubt when these embargo is imposed, the russians will get less chances to finance the war against ukraine. >> is it fast enough, though? as you say, every month they're getting virtually just as much money from energy exports as they got before the invasion. they could turn that money into
6:44 am
weapons. >> absolutely right. we believe here in ukraine that embargo and energy resources would have worked, immediate embargo would have worked as a red button, as a nuclear weapon in economic sphere against russian ability to continue this war. but we also know that europeans are not ready, because for many years they have ignored, were reluctant to build its infrastructure independent from russia, by its roots, its supplies from elsewhere, ukraine for many years has been informing our partners that russians are using gas and oil as a weapon. >> yeah. there are a lot of warnings in advance about that dependence. the ukraine military says russia's missile attacks which we have seen more of in lviv and the west intended in part to strike weapons supply lines and now russian officials are speaking openly saying that they will attack nato supply lines.
6:45 am
has russia successfully struck the supply routes so far, or are they still open? is nato able to get enough weapons to ukrainian forces on the front lines? >> i'll start answering your question with a little maybe personal kind of reminiscences. today the 4th of may, it would have been 100 years anniversary of my grandmother. and her family suffered much during the world war ii. she personally has been captured by nazis and spent two years in labor camps and she left me a diary and when i read that diary, i thought i had just one thought, it just is impossible. and today we live through those horrors, you know, and yesterday night in kyiv a missile attack on kyiv region and also on other
6:46 am
seven regions in ukraine. and six railway stations have been hit by russian rockets. they are hunting as you say, they're hunting after weapons that is coming from the west. and i have to say that despite those attacks, yes, our infrastructure has been severely damaged, but we also have a capability, a capacity to mandate, to repair it pretty quickly. they cannot destroy those routes. the weapon is coming. and it feels like russians really recognize that the west embrace the idea that ukraine actually can win this war. and started to supply ukrainians with all the needed heavy weapon and i think they start panic, and that's why they increase escalated its attacks on the supply routes of the weapon, close it to the front.
6:47 am
>> we'll see if that continues, if those routes can stay open. svetlana, thank you so much. please be safe. >> thank you. still ahead, a shocking physical assault, comedian dave chappelle attacked on stage right in the middle of a show. the moment an audience member rushed the stage, carrying a knife. and the aftermath. we'll have that next. pssst julius! you should really check in with your team on ringcentral. oh hi caesar. we were just talking about you. yeah, you should probably get out of here.e. ♪ ringcentral ♪ cal: our confident forever plan is possiblee with a cfp® professional. a cfp® professional can help you build a complete financial plan. visit to find your cfp® professional. ♪ he used to worry aut the world's oral health problems. - i think i've got it! - [narrator] then, he invented therabreath formulas, for fresh breath, healthy gums, dry mouth, and healthy smiles. - [dr.katz] wow!
