tv   CNN Newsroom With Ana Cabrera  CNN  May 31, 2022 10:00am-11:00am PDT

10:00 am
of har per's bizarre magazine. it's the first time in the magazine's history the first lady has appeared on the first cover. mrs. biden saying when she and the president disagree, they don't hash it out in front of the secret service. instead, they argue it out by text. ana cabrera picks up our coverage right now. hello. thank you for being here. one week later, we are still piecing together what exactly happened on the day a gunman terrorized a texas elementary school for more than 70 minutes. more disturbing audio is surfacing from the day. this time of what appears to be a child saying they had been shot. listen to this. >> are you injured? >> i got shot. >> where?
10:01 am
>> cnn has not been able to confirm if that voice was a student, but the man who recorded the video says the audio came from the dispatch radio in a customs and border protection vehicle. we are also hearing today for the first time from an off-duty border agent who ran to help when his wife, a fourth grade teacher, texted him. that agent was getting a haircut when the shooting happened. so he borrowed a gun from his barber and raced to the school. he ended up outside the door the gunman was behind. he had no tactical gear. here's what he says happened next. >> i was there at the door fixing to go in. once again, i didn't have any gear. i wouldn't have been a smart move for me. all those guys had their gear and stuff, so like i said, i pulled back. >> obviously there's a lot of scrutiny about the police response. what's your take on all of that?
10:02 am
>> to me, i believe everyone there was doing the best they could given the circumstances. yeah. i believe everyone there was doing everything in their power. >> outrage over the response has been building in uvalde and across the country. we'll talk more about that in a minute. first, more on the community and memorial services today. nic is in uvalde. what's happening there today? >> reporter: it is still raw here with emotion. it is almost like this whole town is going through a funeral, and it's today when they begin to bury some of the yupgest victims of tuesday's massacre. amerie turned ten two weeks before the sooting. her funeral is expected to be held later today according to her father she was on the phone with 9-1-1, what her class mates told him, when she was shot and killed. her classmate is also expected to have a funeral later today, maite rodriguez.
10:03 am
she had dreams of becoming a marine biologist. the dreams will never come to fruition. in addition to the two funerals, there are visitations and rosaries for three other victims. including those classmates of the two i just mentioned. nevaeh bravo has a visitation underway right now. her cousin told "the washington post" the child put a smile on everyone's face. her father telling cnn he's not sure how somebody could have shot and killed his daughter who was so sweet and kind. jose florez junior is also expected to have visitation and rosary services today. gary tuchman interviewed the family last week, and it was in that interview that the family was surrounded by the three siblings. jose flor us junior was the oldest of four siblings. when the dad said he went to the hospital, he asked for his son hoping that the child was still alive, but he was led to a room with a chaplain, he said at that
10:04 am
point he knew what had happened. in addition to those two visitations and rosaries, the beloved teacher, one of two teachers shot and killed last week, irma garcia, 48 years old, her visitation and rosary expected to be held later today. she was a teacher at the school for 23 years and it was just a few days after her shooting death that her husband died as well. these are just a handful of the victims from last week's tragedy. and it was just a short time ago that our affiliate, kbbwaio spoke with one of irma garcia's friends. listen to what she had to say. >> i just looked out the window, and i see this guy with a gun walking up. and i just told my class, get on the ground. get on the ground. get to the corner. i just kept hearing shots fired. i just kept praying god, please don't let him come in my room. please don't let him come in this room. and for some reason, he didn't.
10:05 am
>> it's a devastating loss of 21 lives here. 21 people who will never see another day on this earth. we've been standing outside of this memorial here in the middle of town, a memorial that continues to grow by the hour, and there are young children that are coming here as well as adults with tears in their eyes. just trying to make sense of what happened. they know at some point the cameras will leave here and they'll be left with their grief likely for the rest of their lives. >> a lives beautiful, the pictures precious. thank you for helping to lift up their memories and shining light on their lives. joining us now is senior law enforcement analyst charles ramsay, the former philadelphia police commissioner and former d.c. police chief. commissioner, as we honor the lives and we search for answers and try to make sure they didn't die in vain, to look at what could be different to prevent another tragedy like this, i just want to first focus on the investigation, because we are
10:06 am
now hearing from that border patrol agent who ran into the school giving us a little more information about what happened that day, but why do we still not know everything about what went on outside that classroom? it's coming out in drips and draps, small pieces. is that hurting the investigation and public perception? >> well, the public perception, i don't think it's going to hurt the investigation. it makes it even more important that that investigation take place, the doj is planning. it needs to be thorough and deplete. the only way we're going to get an accurate and verified timeline and know exactly who did what when is through this investigation. which obviously is not just about the incident at the school. they're also going to have to take a look at the gunman, how he obtained a gun. leading up to the actual shooting and in the events in the immediate aftermath. so i'm looking forward to that investigation, but it's going to be a while before it's actually available. >> right. the doj investigation could take
10:07 am
a while. i understand it's important for the third party to get to the bottom of what happened. are you concerned not getting information sooner could take some of the urgency out of any momentum there may be to take action? >> well, i hope not. but that remains to be seen. i mean, listen, we've had a sense of urgency before around these school shootings. and if you're referring to whether or not there's going to be any legislative changes or whatever, it hasn't made any difference before. so we just need to really take a look at this investigation. really learn from it. change whatever needs to be changed. but that's not going to happen until those thorough and complete investigation. right now everything is coming out in a piecemeal fashion which is not helpful at all. >> put yourself in this commander's shoes, the commander who made the call not to charge that room, not to take out the suspect as fast and as swiftly as possible. what would you do right now? >> well, first of all, if i was on -- and i've been on scene of
10:08 am
some of these types of incidents, not like the robb elementary, but many barricades and things of that nature. i would have definitely probably not done the same thing that person did, but right now he's kind of like -- i guess laying low. he's not coming out publicly. and i understand that. i mean, this is a very difficult thing that he's going through right now. because people are talking about criminal charges, they're talking about all kinds of things. it may or may not happen. the real problem that i believe -- that i would be having right now is you've got to live with this. you second guess yourself even if you make the right decision, you second guess yourself even if there's nothing else you could have done. i can only imagine what he's got to be going through right now psychologically. so it's just a tough period of time. and not just him, but the other officers that were on scene, but didn't take the action that most people believe they should have taken. >> we'll continue to scrutinize the response, but in terms of
10:09 am
preventing attacks like this, talks continue on the hill. we're still hearing from some republicans who say the solution is not to reforming gun laws. it's in hardening the schools. would that have prevented this? >> well, i mean, listen, we can go back and forth an oh lot of things. are there lessons learned there? yeah. there does need to be things done to tighten security. and my understanding is they have protocols there. someone propped the door open. that takes away from the security measures. but anyone in charge of a school ought to be looking at security protocols, video buzz in doors, all those kinds of things. the reality is it's very unlikely anything of significance will happen on capitol hill. i mean, it didn't happen after sandy hook. it didn't happen after parkland. it hasn't happened after any other cases. and i doubt if it's going to happen now. i'm sorry to be pessimistic, but i have no faith in our congress being able to do anything meaningful at all. they're dysfunctional.
10:10 am
>> commissioner ramsay, we'll continue to press and look for answers and press on our elected officials to take action. thank you for your time, and offering your expertise. and since uvalde, 17 mass shootings in america have taken place. 17. we're talking about individual incidents with four or more people shot. today a bipartisan group of senators will meet virtually to discuss gun safety legislation and cnn's tom foreman has a look at the last time lawmakers actually did enact a major piece of gun legislation, back in 1994. tom, that was an assault weapons ban among other things, that expired in 2004 after congress failed to renew it. what impact did it have? >>. >> let's talk about the nature of the assault weapon. general characteristics, they're semi automatic firing. that means every time you pull the trigger, you get a bullet. many weapons are semi automatic.
10:11 am
that the yourself assault rifles. often they have depatchable and possibly large capacity magazines that clip on. you get a lot of bullets. a pistol grip or something else for better control so it doesn't walk away from the power of the shooting of it. all of this comes together in a package that frankly, looks more like a military thing than most people would expect. and according to john hopkins for gun violence solutions, it results in more shots fire, more wounds per victim compared to attacks with other firearms. so this is just a very attractive weapon in general, huge seller in this country, but particularly people with these kind of assaults. those who feel a ban does work look to these statistics. before the ban pre1994. no assault weapon is read here. the assault weapon is here in the white. during the ban, very small, and after, look what happened. huge climb here. important to bear in mind, though, look at the scale.
10:12 am
yes, these are a lot of people who die in this period of time. but in a country of 300 million, this is a very small number. so there could be many explanations as to why this happened. but control, they say look at it. maybe the ban is really the reason why. there have been other states that have enacted their own dwun laws, and the bluer they are, the more intense those laws have been to try to deal with this after it expired. with these back in the game, you have to look at the fact that this kind of shooting, these weapons, have shown up in some awfully big events that made the news. the las vegas concert shooting. that was semi automatic assault weapons involved, 2017. 2017 also sutherland springs church. remember when that happened. the orlando nightclub. sandy hook, 26 killed. this is one of the reasons assault weapons continue to be
10:13 am
targeted. because opponents of this say look, we think this is low hanging fruit. we don't see the practical use for these, and we do see the attraction of these for mass killers whereas gun enthusiasts say we see the attraction of this, and most people are kwluzing them legally. don't go after this. try to do something else. this is why this is coming up. because of where it shows up and what it does. >> great perspective. when it comes to guns and gun violence, the u.s. stands alone not just in the number of weapons or deaths they cause. but in our absolute inability to do anything substantive to curb the violence. other countries around the world have taken action, and have seen results. take a look at australia, for instance. in 1996 a gunman used an ar-15 to kill 35 people and injure dozens of others at a resort in tasmania. just 12 days later, the prime minister who was a conservative, announced sweeping gun reforms
10:14 am
removing about a million private firearms in a buyback program banning semi automatic rifles and pump action shotguns. adding a waiting period to buy guns in a national registry. gun deaths have been declining in australia in the decades since. that country has had just one mass shooting since those reforms were passed 26 years ago. for comparison, the u.s. had 230 mass shootings so far this year alone. let's take a look at the uk. a country with some of the strictest gun control in the developed world. that wasn't always the case. in the summer of 1987, a gunman armed with two semi automatic rifles killed 16 people. a year later, pump action shotguns and self-loading rifles were banned. 1996, 16 students and one teacher were killed in a school shooting, and this time the shooter used four handguns. by the next year, the british government waned the private
10:15 am
ownership of all handguns and tightened licensing procedures. the uk now has one of the lowest rates of gun violence deaths in the world compared to the u.s. which has nearly four violent gun deaths per 100,000 people. that's one of the highest rates in the developed world. the uk has one of the lowest gun ownership rates while the u.s. owns roughly half of the world's guns. new zealand has taken action. just a few years ago after a gunman murdered 51 people at two christ church mosques. the government immediately moved to ban military style semi automatic weapons, assault rifles and high capacity magazines. a short time ago president biden sat down with new zealand's prime minister and promises he will be meeting with members of congress on gun measures in this country. right now the president is meeting with the head of the fed. his priority in this meeting? fighting inflation. it's part of a month-long plan to focus on the economy.

10:20 am
welcome back. right now president biden is set to meet with the person in charge of the government's response to inflation. federal reserve chair jerome powell, it's part of a renewed focus by the white house to tackle high prices. today the president laying out actions he's taking to give americans relief in a new op ed
10:21 am
including staying hands off with the fed, releasing oil reserves to bring gas and energy prices down and reducing the federal deficit. let's break it down with matt eagan. kaitlyn collins is at the white house. matt, facts of the economy show it's not all good or all bad. let's take the politicians out of it. give us a sense of where we are right now. >> the economy is in a strange place. there are bright spots. unemployment is historically low at 3.6%. i'm sure down dramatically from the peak a year ago. a record number of job openings right now. if you want another job, you can probably find one. wages are growing at a pace the obama administration would have killed for, but inflation is even hotter. after little to no inflation, consumer prices are rising at the fastest pace in 40 years. prices for food and gasoline and housing, three biggest expenses
10:22 am
for families are going up rapidly. i think adding to the confusion is the mayhem we've seen in the markets. after really big gains in 2020, 2021, u.s. markets down sharply all three major indices down on the year, the nasdaq lost almost a party of the quarter this year. 401 k plans and investment portfolios have gotten smaller. that can cause ang sky for people. >> kaitlyn, the president meeting with the fed chief. the white house is feeling pressure. how concerned are they about the economy dragging on the agenda. >> reporter: they're very concerned n. it's dragging on the approval ratings because economy and the inflation is the number one concern of voters right now. they are taking the steps to try to showcase what they are doing to address it. you see they are kicking off starting today this month long effort to talk about what president biden is doing when it comes to inflation, to really mainly show voters he is paying attention and does understand this is something that's really affecting them. it started with that op ed you
10:23 am
referenced that the president published yesterday. he also as a meeting with the fed chair. the president is meeting for the first time since he renominated him. he's expected to make remarks friday. you're going to see effort not just by the president but also the top economic aids who are serving more as spokes people this week, talking about what they're doing on the economy. the bright spots that matt was referencing, but also they've got the tough spots which is what's happening with inflation. and there's only so much the president can do when it comes to that, and the president himself has acknowledged the limits on that. i think the concern for them and the struggle for them is that you've seen the efforts before by putting a big emphasis on what he's doing, it hasn't changed voters' opinion much of how the president is doing. they don't approve of his handling of the economy overwhelm dpli right now. i think that's going to be a challenge for them. >> in fact, public opinion in the latest polling shows it's going the wrong direction in terms of people supporting and having confidence in the president's ability to turn the ship around.
10:24 am
is there anything, any relief in the near term that we can see based on what the president has done, what he's outlined and what does the timeline really look like? >> i think in the near-term, unfortunately, it doesn't appear that way, and even when you think about the fed raising lates, there's a lag. about six to nine months. the fed recently started raising rates and will continue to do so. we're going to see a lag in the markets in the economy in terms of how long that expects. that said, there are perhaps a few signs that inflation may be moderating. we got two key inflation reports over the last weeks. it shows inflation wasn't dropping precipitously but appeared to be moderating. june 10th th is when we get the next consumer price index report. if it shows further easing, that could be a sign that what we've seen is a sign of the trend to come that inflation may have peaked if it doesn't show that next friday, that could mean that what we've seen was a one-off. that won't be good.
10:25 am
>> we've seen the president take action on gas prices. they're still going the wrong direction. >> the national average hitting 4:62 a gallon. 52% more expensive than a year ago. they're $0.39 higher than the day before president biden announced that record setting release from the strategic petroleum reserve. i asked the secretary general about this. she defended the strategy and said the president is obsessed what she described as outrageous gas prices. demand is strong. people are traveling again. an estimated 35 million americans hit the road this holiday weekend. that's up 5 % from last year. but supply is just not keeping up. opec not pumping as much as before covid. u.s. oil companies under pressure from wall street. they're not providing as much supply. then the war in ukraine that's scrambled global supply chain, and another development today with european union agreeing to phase out 90% of russian oil
10:26 am
imports by the end of the year. that's driven oil prices higher again today. brent crude up 1%. and that could signal even higher gas prices. >> not good at all if you're an average person who needs to drive to get around to meet your responsibilities. but kaitlyn, the other thing that stands out to me in the op ed from the president is that he's saying he supports the fed and the action they're taking. at the same time, he is kind of keeping them at arm's length saying they're acting indpebtly. he's laid out ideas to make things more affordable for families, whether it's prescription drugs or something else. but he's saying it's up to congress to take action. to make sure those things can happen. does the white house feel like the president actually has other action he can take? >> i think when it comes to immediate action, they feel pretty limited. because everything that you have heard officials talk about as part of the effort to show he's paying attention to inflation, you've had officials talking about what they're doing, nothing is immediate term. everything is long-term solutions to what's going on. and so it's going to take some time.
10:27 am
i think that's the concern. and you see in that op ed, when the president lays out his three steps that he's doing to try to tame inflation, the first one is leaving it up to the federal reserve. and saying that it's up to them, and you've heard the federal reserve chair say the inflation is their number one concern. they want to make sure they are moderating it so they don't tip the economy essentially into a recession to try to cool things down too much from being overheated. it's a concern there's not much they can do in the immediate term. that strategic oil release they did which they talked about being historic. they talked about the efforts they were taking. it didn't bring down gas prices. they're higher now. it was only briefly they went down. it's a huge concern for them. they want to show voters they're talking about it, but the more they talk about it, voters are reminded. every time they go fill up their cars, about how high the prices are. >> kaitte thank you all. russia is making gains in eastern ukraine.
10:28 am
but do the kremlin's war machine take a big financial hit? the e su cracking down on the oil it's imports from russia. we'll talk more about that next.
10:29 am

10:33 am
the european union's top diplomat says the new ban on russian oil imports will cut into russia's ability to feed the war machine. the eu says 90% of russian oil imports will be stopped by the end of this year. that's a big deal. because the eu is currently the biggest buyer of russian oil. but will its effects be felt soon enough? anna stewart is in london for us. there are some key exceptions to this ban. so can it really have the impact on russia that the eu is predicting? >> reporter: when this was announced, a month ago by the eu commission, it was going to cover all of the russian oil imported into the eu. that has clearly been weakened. it's only 90%. and they just couldn't really agree on this embargo because of some holdout countries who rely so much on russian oil. so the exemption will be a stretch of pipeline that delivers oil to hungary, czech
10:34 am
republic, slo vok ya and the countries that needed to be appeased. overall, that is only 10% of the russian oil that heads to the eu. it is still significant if we're looking at the finances from russia's point of view. currently the eu pays russia 10 billion a month just for oil. so by the end of this year, that will suddenly drop off to just $1 billion a month. the problem, of course, is oil prices are tight. i know you were talking to matt about that in the last block. they're at a two-year high. they are high. the market is very tight. so at this stage, russia doesn't need to sell as much oil to make the same amount of money and there are customers looking for it in china and india. customers that already use russian oil are seeing it as cheaper. it is trading as a discount right now. russian oil at $34 a barrel cheaper than benchmark crude. you can see how attractive this is. the eu has to find oil from
10:35 am
elsewhere within this market. as china exits lockdowns. that market is going to get even tighter. will opec or the u.s. be able to ramp up enough oil to meet that? at this stage, it's unlikely. we're looking at high oil prices for some time to come. >> thank you for that updade. zblrchgs more russian soldiers have been sentenced for committing war crimes in ukraine. a ukrainian court sentenced two russian soldiers to 11.5 years prison for violating the rules of law. both men were accused of firing rockets toward kharkiv. both pleaded guilty. last week another russian soldier was sentenced to life in prison for killing an unarmed man. in ukraine, the fierce battle over a key city in the east is intensifying. ukraine's military says russian forces are focussing on taking control of the eastern city. multiple officials say the u.s. is preparing to step up the kind
10:36 am
of weaponry it is offering ukraine by sending this. long-range rocket systems. but there is a caveat. president biden says the u.s. won't send the rockets themselves that are capable of hitting targets inside russia. cnn's barbara starr joining us from the pentagon. how does this work if you have the system but not the rockets? >> well, they may get rockets, but those rockets under the president's view right now will not be capable of hitting inside russia. there are shorter range rockets. there is a system that ukraine desperately wants to push the russians back from eastern ukraine. the u.s. willing it appears to give it to them under a 40 billion drawdown program that is currently being sourced in congress and with the pentagon. so what we're talking about is some kind of multiple launch rocket system, but with rockets that are of a shorter range that
10:37 am
could not land inside russia. maybe 40, 50 miles as opposed to the most long range systems which are about 185 miles. so right now we are waiting to see what is finally decided by the white house. the pentagon could make an announcement about all of this as soon as tomorrow, we are told. so everyone is watching. it's all part of that bigger package that the congress has passed for another round of military aid to ukraine. but make no mistake, take a step back and look at the bigger picture in eastern ukraine. russia is making progress. slow, clumsy, incremental, but it is progress. they are cutting that wide swath through eastern ukraine that they are now increasingly able to control parts of this. and it will make it increasingly difficult no matter what weapons the ukrainian forces have. difficult for them to push back
10:38 am
the russian forces out of this area, not impossible. they are very strong fighters. but it is getting very tense on that eastern border region. >> all right. thank you so much. barbara starr at the pentagon for us. in another part of the world, one senator's surprise trip to taiwan is adding tension to a fraught relationship between the u.s. and china. tammy duckworth arrived with a delegation on monday reiterating america's support for taiwan. this comes on the heels of the recent comments by president biden, saying the u.s. would intervene militarily if china were to invade. beijing sees taiwan as a province. in a statement the embassy in washington says it firmly opposes the visit. taiwan's foreign ministry says china flew dozens of war planes into the identification zone on monday. who is behind the unprecedented supreme court leak? investigators are digging deep, and they might even snag clerk's cell phones to try to find out.

are you a christian author with a book that you're ready to share with the world? get published now, call for your free publisher kit today! and unprecedented breach now an unprecedented investigation. cnn is learning exclusive details about what supreme court
10:44 am
officials are doing in their search for the source of a leaked draft opinion. we're talking about the opinion that if it holds would overturn the landmark roe v. wade decision, reversing decades of abortion rights. cnn legal analyst and supreme court biographer joins us with more of her exclusive reporting. joan, what exactly are investigators doing? >> reporter: good afternoon, ana. yes, sources with knowledge of the court's new demands tell us they're -- the officials at the court are stepping up their efforts to have clerks sign affidavits, and to retrieve some of their cell phone data. we don't know the scope of that yet, if it involves calls and texts and images, but it's causing reverberations among the law clerks wondering should they obtain outside counsel? how should they react to the requests? you know what's happened with the disclosure. it was unprecedented, but the chief justice four weeks ago
10:45 am
launched an investigation that apparently has not made sufficient progress, and now they're really escalating here. this is one of the most important cases the court is deciding this term or maybe even for decades, given that it would roll back potentially a half century of portion rights and privacy protections, but it's -- this is an intrusion on law clerks and one of the lawyers i talked to who is familiar with the demand said in any other situation in a government investigation, similarly situated employees would hire a lawyer, and he said it would be lip critical -- hypocritical for the supreme court to say don't hire a lawyer. i'm sure the justices wouldn't be saying that, but there might be a lot of pressure inside on the law clerks in terms of how they respond to the requests. >> and the clerks are not the only ones that might have been access to the draft opinion. do we know if others are under this same scrutiny?
10:46 am
>> well, let me tell you wa happens with the draft opinion. the one politico published from february 10th was a first draft. that's the way it was labeled. it would have gone not just to the nine justices and the law clerks but almost twice as many other administrative people inside. other people in the justice's chambers and some key administrative folks. up to perhaps like 75 individuals would have had access. and this is just inside. they're districted both electronically in a closed court m system but also hand delivered by marshall's aides to the chambers. and people can take documents home. there are all sorts of protocols at the court for what does leave the building. but obviously a copy of this did leave the building, and made its way to politico, and i don't know if the law clerks are going to be the best targets for this search, but that's what the supreme court is focussed on
