tv   New Day Weekend With Christi Paul and Boris Sanchez  CNN  May 15, 2022 3:00am-4:00am PDT

3:00 am
♪ >> good morning to our viewers in the united states and around the world. welcome to your new day. >> i am boris sanchez. >> i am christi paul. we want to give you that shooting in buffalo, new york. ten people were killed when a gunman opened fire. this was at a supermarket in a largely black neighborhood in buffalo. >> i have seen the guy go in.
3:01 am
army style. bent over just shooting at people and i saw three people laying down. >> officials say that peyton gendron, a white 18-year-old man was wearing body armor and military-style clothing when he pulled up yesterday at the top's friendly market, and began shooting. he picked that spot specifically for its demographics, according to officials. they say he drove more than 200 mile ace way to carry out the attack in an area that had a significant black population. >> he was very heavily armed. he had tactical gear. he had a tactical helmet on. he had a camera live streaming what he was doing. >> the suspect was immediately arraigned on first-degree murder charges and more charges are expected to follow. federal agencies are now investigating the shooting as a
3:02 am
potential hate crime and a case of racially motivated domestic terrorism. >> they are reviewing a 180-page manifesto, reportedly written by the shooter, where he describes his perceptions about the dwindling size about the white population. cnn's polo sandoval is with us from buffalo right now. polo? >> certainly, investigators are basically pouring over that manifesto you just mentioned. as for the neighbor itself, christi and boris, the community is heavy with sorrow as this community will wake up as they continue to mourn the loss of many community members. the yellow tape that you see still surrounding the grocery store this morning will likely go up for some time, as authorities very quickly announced they will be handling this, at least at the federal level, as racially motivated violence -- violent streepism. in fact, just a few hours after that heavily armed and
3:03 am
armor-wearing suspect allegedly pulled up to this grocery store, the federal authorities were very quick to say that he was fueled by hate as he got out of this vehicle and methodically began to shoot people. 13 shot, ten of them killed. 11 of the victims were black. that paints a clear picture of what happened here, and -- and also speaks to the apparent motivation investigators are working with right now. in terms of where he came from, talking about a three-hour drive. i want you to hear from erie county sheriff, john garcia, as tries to describe how this investigation is being handled up to this point. >> this is pure evil. it was straight-up, racially-motivated hate crime from somebody outside of our community, outside of the city of good neighbors as the mayor
3:04 am
said, coming into our community, and trying to inflict that evil upon us. >> reporter: that suspect already charged with first-degree murder yesterday afternoon but as you mentioned a lot of those charges will likely add up, with more charges expected not to mention that federal component of this investigation. but there are -- there is so much evidence to pour over. there is the 180-page manifesto they believe may have been written by the suspect, and had been posted online just days before the shooting itself. and also, witness statements and of course what he could potentially tell investigators as well, as we will today seek to learn more about the people, the families affected, including a security guard that tried to actually shoot the suspect. in fact, actually man aged to land a round. because the suspect was wearing that body armor, that round was
3:05 am
ineffective and that is when the suspect, the police say, turned his attention on that security dpard and shot and killed him. i had opportunity to speak briefly with attorney general letitia james yesterday saying among many things they will be reviewing are social media platforms, including the one used to live-stream a portion of that attack. of course, that company has spoken out, boris, saying they are devastated and they took down that live stream only minutes after the violence began. >> polo sandoval, appreciate all the details. thank you so much. want to go to cnn white house reporter, jasmine wright. jasmine, always good to see you. i know, president biden has been briefed on this shooting, obviously. what is the response from the white house? >> well, president biden is mourning the victims of this tragic shooting but also calling for action, after he was briefed on saturday. in a statement released late last night, he said more needs
3:06 am
to be learned about the motivations for this shooting making way for a thorough investigation. and one thing is clear -- i want to read you this part -- he said a racially motivated hate crime is abhorrent to the very fabric of this nation. any act of domestic terrorism, including an act perpetrated in the name of a repugnant white nationalist ideology is ant i thinkcal and in the statement released last night, he also thanked first responders and other law official -- law enforcement officials. we will see the president leaving, heading to washington, d.c. where he is expected to attend the national law enforcement officer memorial, where he and the first lady will give remarks.
3:07 am
really, returning to that as this nation mourns this tragic event. christi? boris? >> jasmine wright traveling with the president in wilmington, delaware, thank you so much. let's get straight to some expert analysis now with cnn national security analyst juliette kayyem. juul yet, always great to have you. unfortunate it is under these circumstances. cnn has independently obtained these shooter's alleged writings much of it lifted from the darkest corners of the internet. the shooter describing himself as an anti-semite, exposing a fringe-conspiracy theory that white people are being systematically replaced in this country. it is very similar to other far-right terrorists that we have seen before. this strikes me as a copycat-type attack. is that a fair assessment? >> it is. and i think the manifesto exposes -- i think the limitations of the way we tend to think about these kinds of
3:08 am
attacks as sort of lone wolf, what can we learn about him? what motivated him? i think what we see is there is an entire apparatus of connected tissue, connecting these cases, connecting this hate, and the hunt that we saw on saturday. the manifesto, itself, is -- is not rambling. we shouldn't think of these people as crazy. -- it's actually just absorbing the -- the -- the language of hate that we hear in the public space, that we hear in the media space. and in particular, as you note, white-replacement theory of -- of -- of racism and -- and it matters because a white replacement theory is base on a belief that the pie is limited, the american pie is limited. and that the existence of the other -- in this case, african-americans -- but we have
3:09 am
seen it with hispanic americans with the rampage in texas -- the existence of them threatens my ability, as the white man, to be able to exist in america. and therefore, it justifies violence. in other words, it is a -- it is not just racism. it is a violent racism because you have to rid yourself of these people. and this is the -- the -- the motivation that is leading to what we call, you know, violent extremism. this isn't mere extremism. it is violent extremism because it is justified in their theory of i have to protect my piece of the pie. >> and that kind of thinking is echoed often, even by some of the most popular hosts on -- on cable news. >> yeah. >> and other similar terrorists. people that we know shot up a mosque in new zeelaland, a chur in south carolina. the shooter in his own writing seems to acknowledge that he was radicalized online. just an 18-year-old kid. walk us through that process of
3:10 am
radicalization. are some people more susceptible to this sort of thing than others? >> little bit. one is some are more susceptible to it because it confirms maybe the beliefs they have, or the beliefs they have raised in. and then the way algorithms work on social media, the way we get information is if we like something, more of ha information will come to us over time so you are inundated with that lane. so why? there is lots of people we see doing this, though. so, why it he become the one who took out a gun? but i hate to say in terms white supremacy, in terms of hatred in this country, you can hear political leaders, media leaders, right, they are espousing the same thing but they are doing it in a way that is relatively generic. and so, they have plausible
3:11 am
deniability. they didn't know this guy. they didn't tell him to do it. but what they are giving him is a network of support. as i wrote yesterday, his herd. he is not a lone wolf. he has his herd. and why, particularly, him? we will find out over time but that is basically how the radicalization works and they are supported by leaders. i mean, they don't view themselves as aberrations or crazy. they are -- they are watching leaders mimic this language. >> you are so right. it -- it's often coded. it's the idea that somehow demographic change is going to displace certain people and -- and harm certain people. >> right. >> i am wondering how you think law enforcement can monitor and track some of the sites where this stuff festers on the internet while also respecting the first amendment and freedom of speech? >> and it -- it's hard balance. i mean, certainly some -- some of the platforms have -- either don't exist anymore or -- or
3:12 am
they are getting more careful and i think -- so i think this is important there -- there is a law enforcement part which we are seeing through the hate crime and federal hate crime statutes that is only individual-based. then, there is going to be the means part, right? the access to the guns, the debate we have after all these shootings. you know, even if he had this gun lawfully, should he have had this kind of gun lawfully? remember, he is engaged in a firefight. this has nothing to do with whether other people should be armed to kill him. he just survived because he has body armor and the third part which is the hardest which is that -- that the community that supports this kind of hate. we can bring it down. our laws are not good at targeting social media accounts. there is a huge debate about whether the platform should be responsible for content. it hasn't changed yet, and so what it is also going to take is -- is naming and shaming. i mean, it is -- it is essentially calling it racist
3:13 am
violence that is supported by some of the top political media leaders in this country. we use coded language like racist sentiment or, you know, supporting extremism. no, they are -- they're actually supporting racist violence. i mean, that is essentially what it is. and i think we have been fearful of calling it out maybe we were too coy or too polite. we really shouldn't be at this stage. they know -- they know the consequences of their language. we should not be fearful -- the vast majority of americans who condemn this -- of calling it that. >> juliette kayyem, always appreciate your perspective and analysis. thank you so much for joining us this morning. >> thank you of the. quick programming note for our viewers. cnn's dana bash is going to speak with new york governor kathy hochul on state of the union. you can watch that right here on cnn at 9:00 a.m. we continue to follow the latest developments out of buffalo all morning, of course.

3:19 am
extremism. witnesses described this just horrific scene. take a look. >> i heard him shooting at people. then i saw three people laying down and i didn't have a phone on me. so i was just screaming for somebody to call the police, and -- and then, he came out. he put the gun to his head, to his chin. then, he dropped it and he took off his -- uh -- bulletproof vest. and then, he got on his hands and knees with his hands behind his back and they arrested him. it's shame because there is a lot of people in there. >> my daughter's best friend was in the bathroom hiding when it all heaped. she said she heard gunshots and she ran into the bathroom. she is scared for her life. >> i spoke to one of the workers on my way here. and she said that, you know, her family members are calling her and her co-workers and it was just, like, something out -- out of a war movie. just nonstop shooting. people running, screaming. the person was in tactical gear.
3:20 am
a lot of guns, a lot of some kind of armor. >> think about the horror. you are in the grocery store, and then this happens. police say the alleged shooter was not from the area. had actually traveled hours just to carry out this shooting. still want to tell you what is happening with finland's foreign minister because they just announced the country has decided to apply for nato membership. this move is happening as the form ministers are actually meeting in berlin. russia blasted the decision calling it a quote radical change in foreign policy, that will force moscow to retaliate. the big question is what happens next? finland says it hopes to apply for membership without delay. the next steps include a vote by the finnish parliament, which has to approve that decision. and then, all 30 current members of nato must approve the new applicants. want to get some perspective from jim townsend now. former secretary of defense for
3:21 am
european and nato policy. jim, so fwgrateful to have you with us. what was your initial reaction to finland's announcement? >> well, great joy, quite frankly. i have worked with finland since 1990, sweden as well. and this is a historic journey they have taken and i didn't think i would see their membership in nato in my lifetime. and so, seeing it now, i am very glad that they are joining. it is good for nato and good for finland, given what is happening in their neighborhood. >> so that was my next question. given what is happening in ukraine, because of attacks from russia, does that give more credence to this application? >> well, it certainly does. i think the alliance was always gonna be ready for -- for sweden and finland to join. but given the situation now, this is an important signal to putin that what he has done -- this gamble -- has gone wrong, and instead of putting nato back
3:22 am
on its heels, he has added two new members and finland is an important member. it shares a long wet boundary line with russia. so this is obviously something putin is upset about but obviously something putin is not going to be able to do much about. >> secretary townsend, the thing is turkey might be able to do something about it. we know that turkey opposes both finland and sweden from joining nato. do you see any potential movement? because i know that ti, um, finland's foreign minister called his counterpart in turkey to, quote, take the tensions down. do you see a space here for any potential movement from turkey to embrace this? >> yes, i do. the -- the parties are talking right now. and of course, at the foreign ministers' meeting over dinner last night and again, i think, probably today as well, conversations are happening, um, among the allies with turkey to
3:23 am
work on these issues turkey has and this is something we have seen from turkey in the past. this is not unusual, that if turkey senses something that it could get from a deal, they are -- they're going to go for that -- using that kind of leverage. sweden and finland both have kurdish populations. both of those countries are not seen as strong about the pkk terrorist group from -- from there in northern iraq as much as turkey would like them to be. turkey wants them to have a harder line. so i think if there is going to be any kind of compromise made, think both those countries are going to have to talk about their view about pkk and terrorism and their own kurdish populations. so there is some talking that is going to have to happen, but i think something will come out of it, and turkey will eventually agree for both these nations to come into nato. >> kremlin spokesperson dmitry peskov gave an interesting statement, saying russia's reaction would depend on how far
3:24 am
and how close to our borders the military infrastructure would move and now today, putin saying this could force us to retaliate. what is your expectation of what russia will do if this continues? >> well, i have a couple things. one is we have lfr seen the russians cut off the electricity that -- that finland buys from the russian net. but that is only 10% of the finnish requirement. so they have been able to deal with that and weren't surprised so it is that kind of retaliation we are going to see there russia. it won't be military. there is going to be perhaps a lot of harsh rhetoric. think we are going to hear that. we might see some cyberattack of some type. we are going to see a lot of misinformation coming out of moscow, trying to scare the finns and swedes about what russia may do. they are ready for that. they don't scare easily, those
3:25 am
two nations, and their peoples have dealt with russia in the past. the russians have talked about moving nuclear weapons which we always expected were there, you know, which juts out into the -- into the baltic sea. so we are not going to see a military-style move by the -- by the russians. we are just going to hear a lot of heated rhetoric and perhaps misinformation campaigns, maybe a sooirn cyberevent. >> former secretary of defense for european and nato policy, jim townsend, thank you for being here. >> thank you. pure evil. that is how one official describes the scene at that buffalo supermarket where a shooting left ten people dead. now, police are calling it a hate crime. the very latest on this investigation when we come back. how am i l looking? looking good! the most cautious driver we got

thanks so much for being with us this morning. the live streaming platform twitch has confirmed the suspect in that mass shooting in new york used its services to webcast the attack to viewers online. >> yeah. we are also learning that investigators are reviewing a purported 180-page manifesto, a screed that was written by the shooter. let's bring in cnn chief media correspondent and anchor of "reliable sources" brian stelter. brian, good morning. we have learned that twitch, actually, pulled that stream in fewer than two minutes after it went live. what more can you tell us about what was broadcast and what the company did? >> in the beginning of the video, it is shot from the point of view of the suspect as he is driving into the parking lot. he -- he can be seen in the rear-view mirror wearing a
3:31 am
helmet and saying "just got to go for it" before he pulls in front of the store. now, we have not been able to review the entire video, including the actual shooting but twitch says it was taken down within two minutes of the beginning of the violence. my follow-up questions have not been answered about whether that means that this was still actively ongoing, or whether all the of gunfire was over he at that point. of course, with a weapon like this, you can do incredible, horrible damage in just two minutes but it is notable that twitch says it took action really quickly because these companies have been under tremendous pressure to be more responsive. and in the past, some of these live-streams of other attacks have actually set online quite a bit longer. the amazon streaming service here, popular among gamers, is saying it did take action very quickly. the user has been indefinitely suspended of course and taking all appropriate action, including monitoring any accounts rebroadcasting this
3:32 am
content and that is really important because, again, in other cases, we have seen these videos go viral. thankfully, in this case so far, i have not seen this video or manifesto being spread as widely in our online circles. still, we are going to hear in the coming days calls from politicians for more accountability. governor kathy hochul saying overnight she wants these companies to do more. >> so i want to ask you about that 180-page manifesto. is it really possible, do you think, brian, that that's not going to spread online somewhere? and -- and do we know -- not that you need to mention it -- but do investigators know -- i mean obviously they do by do we know where it was online? my assumption is it was placed somewhere online with people who are like minded and that's why
3:33 am
it was not reported? >> right. right. a lot of this activity happens on -- on message boards. i would describe them as fringe-message boards but they have a significant number of users and you kind of have to be a member of that club, member of that group, in order for any of it to make sense, to even be involved in those chats. what i think we have in this case, as we have seen sadly way too often, is a case of online radicalization where someone has their mind poisoned by lies on these message boards and then decides to take violent action as a result. um, it is a form of white-supremacy terrorism and unfortunately has been a wake-up call about it now for several years because of what happened in christchurch and el paso, and elsewhere. these kind of manifestos don't spread on facebook normally, they don't spread on twitter but they do show up in the darker corners of the internet. and how you handle those very, dark, ugly corners of the

i know you have heard it. de-centralized and digital cryptocurrency has been described as the future of money. it's made investors extraordinarily rich. others have lost millions. >> including, in the last week, when several cryptocurrencies collapsed, even those believed to be among the most stable. that raised alarm among some of the nation's top-financial regulators. >> reporter: it's touted as nearly impossible to counterfeit, fast to transfer, keeping users anonymous, and not beholden to any central bank. the appeal of cryptocurrency has led to skyrocketing value. its market cap peaking at $3 trillion before, recently, dropping to 1.2 trillion. >> well, it is the future of currency. it is an unstoppable financial vehicle that is going to take over the world. >> i get it. but, uh, what is it, man?
3:40 am
>> reporter: made possible by blockchain technology, the most popular cryptocurrencies are virtually mined. sophisticated software crunching complex computational math problems with the first to find a solution winning a block of digital coins, which users can then sell. boosted by an unprecedented level of easy money, and low interest rates and stimulus spending, cryptocurrencies soared the last couple of years. >> and it's already changed the way it works. >> investors, entrepreneurs, and even governments bought in. miami mayor francis suarez pushing to make the u.s. the crypto capital and el salvador adopting it as an official currency. but the mining process consumes tons of energy which presents serious environmental concerns. the anonymity also invites crime. crypto has been used for everything from buying illicit
3:41 am
drugs to paying off hackers in ransomware attacks. critics also charge that scams are rampant. the mania has led to instability. prices spiking and crashing and in the last month alone, close to a trillion dollars' worth of value has been lost. given the extreme volatility in cryptocurrency markets, a newer kind of coin has become increasingly popular. stable coins, like tether, are backed by hard assets. things like bonds. similarly, algorithmic stable coins like t are a ausd are not backed by hard asset but a nebulous term financial engineering that ties it to the u.s. dollar. that financial engineering has recently spooked investors and over the last few days, both of these coins have faltered. tether -- the world's largest stable coin -- broke its peg from the u.s. dollar before

rebounding, and terrausd, dropping to just 16 cents as of saturday. terra cease sister coin, lieu that, also lost just 90% of its value in just 24 hours. >> these quite complicated mechanisms that rely on people trusting the system. and as soon as trust evaporates, the entire thing can collapse. >> the drop triggering a panic, with a recent report indicating regulators at the federal reserve are concerned little o oversight could doom confidence in the entire digital economy. >> i think right now is the -- is the kind of pivotal moment for crypto. to either prove doubters wrong there is something new, different, and valuable here or i think the entire industry will start to look like a very bizarre sideshow that people should ignore. >> let's dig deeper now with marcus satirio. he is a crypto analyst at global
3:43 am
block. marcus, thank you for spending part of your sunday morning with us. the u.s. stock market, also, seeing intense volatility in recent days. how do crypto have an impact on the economy more broadly? >> i think in the future, crypto will definitely have a [ inaudible ] but at the moment, we are starting to see global markets actually have a big impact on crypto. so as we have seen throughout the past six months, the fed have started to -- to tighten and this is affected crypto markets as they start correlating with risk on assets like stocks, and that's why we start to see crypto come down over the last six months as we start to see that correlation take place and that is mainly just due to these macro
3:44 am
headwinds and as as crypto has become more institutionalized, we have now seen crypto start to really sort of follow [ inaudible ] head winds are in place. >> perhaps not surprisingly, more oversight would help to stabilize crypto markets. how soon do you think we are going to see an attempt to impose more strict regulations on cryptocurrencies and -- and trading? >> well, i think after the -- the ust stable coin collapse last week, i think regulation not just through stablecoins but also around the whole crypto space is fairly imminent. we saw janet yellen, the -- the day after ust collapsed that stable coins at this moment in time cannot thoroughly impact the global-financial system.

but they have the potential to grow to a size in which they can actually impact the financial system. so we have seen this recognition here, from the top -- top lawmakers here that, you know, that crypto can actually impact the -- the financial system. i think this recognition, um, and the collapse proves that, yes, regulators will come in force but i don't think it will necessarily be -- have a negative impact on crypto. it's certainly necessary if you want the big money and the institution from wall street to come in with -- with size, i think we actually need this regulation and i don't see it as a bad thing -- bad thing at all. >> yeah. it sounds like you are still bullish on crypto, long-term. so what is your advice to someone who perhaps is curious about it? doesn't exactly know how it works but know hes that you can get rich off of crypto and maybe you want to invest some money in
3:46 am
it? >> sure, so i am definitely still bullish for the long-term of crypto. i think over this -- this -- this next decade, we are going to start seeing, you know, have -- have a -- have an exponential increase in user adoption. we are starting -- what we have seen already that crypto's grown at double the pace what the internet did. so, that just goes to show, despite the extreme volatility, that is the actual growth of the networks behind these cryptoassets growing tremendously, and i think you can easily approximabe scared b extreme volatility but if you look behind the volatility in terms of wall-user growth, we are actually growing at an exponential rate. and i think a way in which you can counter this extreme volatility and a way of dealing with it is just invest small amounts but frequently over -- over a set period of time. so then, you can actually lower
3:47 am
your average-entry price and i think whilst everyone is fearful. you might think that -- that is a big scary, i am not sure if i want to invest in something that goes down that much. well i i am not sure we have seen the long-term trend of crypto rise over the past years and there is no reason to believe this will suddenly stop over the long-term. these are great opportunities to -- to be adding into your long-term investment. >> marcus, we will keep watching the markets. we hope you will come back to help us make sense of them. thanks so much. >> cheers. thanks so much for having me. >> of course. >> still ahead. tornados, large hail, and damaging winds. millions of you are under that umbrella today for weather. we will have your forecast, coming up. than seed alonee for full, green grasass. everything else just seems... slow.
