tv Inside Politics With John King CNN June 3, 2022 9:00am-10:00am PDT
everybody, welcome to "inside politics." i'm john king in washington. the breaking news this hour, a federal grand jury in washington has indicted the former trump white house adviser peter navarro on criminal contempt for charges. it's from the refusal to cooperate with the house january 6th committee. paula reed, tell us more. >> this is not a big surprise. we know last week fbi agents
showed up to navarro's home and served him with a subpoena specifically asking him to provide to a grand jury documents related to his refusal to comply with the house select committee. including any communications that he had had with former president trump or his lawyers. peter navarro has been public about his efforts to undermine the outcome of the 20 20 election. he was subpoenaed by the committee last february and refused to comply with that, citing executive privilege. the committee, though, at the time, said look, there's a lot of things we want to talk to you about that you've spoken about publicly. you have published in your book, and that would not be covered by executive privilege. come in and answer our questions. he refused to do that. he refused to provide any documents. the house voted to refer him to the justice department for criminal contempt. he's been indicted by a grand jury. >> what happens next in the legal process? >> he's expected to appear in court later today. now, the case against peter navarro is actually a strong one
in terms of con tenlt of congress. interestingly, the committee has expressed a lot of frustration that the justice department has not done enough to help them enforce these subpoenas, but the navarro case is much stronger because he has not provided any cooperation unlike, for example, former chief of staff mark meadows who did provide some documents and explosive stuff the committee has uncovered before he stopped cooperating. navarro was also not one of the president's absolute topped a vie vors. he's already missed about privilege are unlikely to shield him in this case. >> appreciate the hustle and breaking news. let's get to capitol hill with manu raju. now you have the indictment of peter navarro. >> following steve bannon. the committee has wanted and democrats have not just in the committee but wanted the justice department to do more investigating january 6th. investigating donald trump's role in all of it and to go
after the former president. you'll hear that from a lot of house democrats. and the committee were concerned that there was not enough effort by the justice department to take their contempt of congress charges more seriously. but this indictment undoubtedly will get some cheers on capitol hill among the democrats on the committee. the two republicans on the committee are still hoping that mark meadows, dan skaveno will be charged. navarro is important for the committee. they have said he could provide key information about what donald trump's knowledge, discussions, everything in the runup to january 6th. bennie thompson, the chairman of the committee said at the time the committee referred him for contempt charges, they said donald trump voiced support for the plans to overturn the elections. plans navarro was talking about privately with the former president. ultimately next week we'll get the first sense from the committee when they have a public hearing about new information. they have uncovered gaps they
may have in their information and whether people like peter navarro have information that could fill in those gaps. the question will be now that he is indicted, what will they get any of the information they're seeking here. no question about it, democrats will be happy this development today. >> let's bring in evan perez. help us understand the mark meadows referral is still pending. he has given the committee some information that he stopped. why does the navarro indictment matter and what about the rest? >> i think for the justice department, this is a big step. obviously you know that the attorney general merck garland has been getting a lot of criticism about the case of some of the investigations that have to do with january 6th. this is not directly related to anything that happened on january 6th. this is more about navarro's trying to obstruct essentially. that's what the prosecutors are trying to allege here, the investigation that's being done by this committee on the hill.
but from a larger point -- from a larger standpoint, you've seen a flurry of activity from the justice department. you know that merrick garland doesn't say a lot about what's happening. we've seen subpoenas being sent to fake electors, so called. people who were involved in the overall process by the former president to essentially stay in office. and so you're seeing the justice department pick up some of the activity that we've been long promised by the attorney general, was actually going to happen. we're now seeing it come to fruition. so at least i think for going into next week's hearings, right, it's very important for the justice department to telegraph to the world, to the country, that they are on the job and doing something about what happened on january 6th. >> important context. evan, thank you. let's get more perspective from elie honig. the congress would say this is
overdue. this is i'm not understating the importance of this, but this is a process question. the congress says you refuse to cooperate with us. we want you held in contempt. and then there's the larger justice department investigation and potential criminal behavior between election day, the insurrection and up to inauguration day. help with context? >> yeah. so first of all, focusing on the narrow issue of peter navarro, this is bad news for peter navarro. this is serious. this is a federal indictment. united states versus peter navarro, if he's convicted he can go to prison for up to a year. it's important to note, this is an unusual law that says if he's convicted, he has to go to prison for at least one month. the stakes here are very real. and bigger picture, john, it somewhat answers the question of well, will the justice department back up the committee and congress when people defy their subpoenas. as we know, here peter navarro was one of several people who defied subpoenas. congress held peter navarro in
contempt. sent to it doj, and doj has now charged peter navarro with a crime. there's a message to other people who may be considering defying the committee. however, it does bear noting this makes quite clear that doj is nowhere near charging mark meadows. the mark meadows contempt referral got sent over six months ago. this one got sent about two months ago. so it raises the question will doj will charging meadows, seems like not. will doj will charging dan skavino held in contempt the same day? there's a mixed message. i think if i'm somebody thinking about well, should i comply with the subpoena to testify in hearings? i'm taking note of this indictment of navarro, and i could push me toward testifying. >> help me with the question. we know peter navarro was involved after the election of trying to help, trying to find ways to sometimemy the results, steal the election. that's peter navarro. we know from text messages that
mark meadows was much more central, the gate keeper to the president, the chief of staff. but he did give the committee some text messages and then stopped and said i'm not going to cooperate any further. is that the reason for delay? take us in the room when prosecutors are saying he koornted some but then stopped. where's the line? >> it looks to me like prosecutors are considering two factors. one is executive privilege. the defense that mark meadows and navarro and dan and steve bannon are all have raised or will raise is executive privilege. they'll say we don't have to testify about our conversations with the president. steve bannon had no claim of executive privilege. he wasn't even in the white house at the time. by contrast, mark meadows was chief of staff. he has the strongest claim of executive privilege and i think navarro and ska vino fall in the middle. the second factor, as you said, is was there any compliance here? mark meadows, as you noted, did
partially comply. he turned over thousands of texts. and then he stopped. so in contrast to peter navarro, and the others who completely stone walled and turned over nothing. from a prosecutor's point of view, it's a stronger case against someone who completely refused as opposed to a case against mark meadows to partially complied. >> appreciate the important insights and contexts. we'll continue the context in the room. in studio to share their reporting and insights, our panel. let's remind people, navarro was president trump's trade adviser, the architect of some of the tariffs on china policy. he then became a conspiracy theorist and election denier. one of the few people the president trusted not only inside the white house but in touch with trump outside the white house. >> he was extremely active and championing some of the efforts to overturn the election. i think navarro was one of the
top spokesperson we saw on many different networks carrying trump's flag and arguing the cases, and i find it interesting that the justice department is raising these indicting navarro, but i question will they go further? i think it's a big step to indict him. but will they take the next step in regards to the points about what the house is going to be investigating? >> so let's listen for those of you who may forget what he looks like, what he sounds like and how he talks. i navarro on january 5th, the day before the 6th, describing the plan. >> the plan was this. we had over 100 congressmen and senators on the hill ready to implement the sweep. we were going to challenge the results of the election in the six battle ground states. these were the places where we believe if the votes were sent back to those battle ground states, and looked at again, that there would be enough concern among the legislatures
that most or all of those states would decertify the election. >> that was january 5th th this year. one year after essentially the insurrection. he makes it sound like this is perfectly normal. >> yeah. >> it's not. >> right. and there he is on television talking about this plan that he details in his book. so the idea that somehow this is executive privilege, that he can't talk to the committee, seems like an absurd argument. the justice department at this point not buying and saying compelling him, essentially, to talk to the committee. this is a committee that has done, i think far more extensive work than anybody thought they would going into this. they've had some people stone wall them, but many people cooperating to give hours and hours of testimony. and we'll see some of that start to be unveiled in the weeks to come. and i think this certainly, again, spotlights the kind of work they've been able to do, and we'll see i think bomb shells maybe coming in the next week of information we hadn't known before about the detailed
plan that so many people throughout the administration had to overturn the election. >> forgive me. the detail. the detail, that's the most significant part here. i know there are people watching. some people are just tired. they don't want to talk about this anymore. they were trying to steal your country. and it's the details. in the sense we know this was corrupt. we know there's nothing to support the allegations of big fraud. it's a lie. the question is were there people involved who were trying to actually do things? is it the fake electors? get pence to do things? was there a plan in place to break the law or was it just spewing lies and conspiracies or can you get the details? >> it was definitely the latter. was it the former? but there's no person probably on the government's dime on the taxpayer funded salary, he was a trade adviser, but he had long left that portfolio aside. he became one of the highest ranking government officials who was trying to overtake the election. so obviously that's what the committee is going for. they don't necessarily need his testimony. they built a timeline and a case that we're going to see unveiled
starting next thursday evening in the first hearings. what they -- what he could offer probably as you said, was this -- how detailed was this crime? was his work with the president to overtake the electors in that's probably what they're going for. peter navarro now finds himself in trouble. he's talked a lot for a long time. he wrote a book now as ellie was saying. the federal case is against him. so they don't need him for the hearing. but he has his own legal situations to worry about. we should point out, no one closer, few people were closer to president than him in making the argument. >> tight in the steep end. and was -- what's interesting when you look at the indictment, papers count two, testimony, one thing we've learned from the january 6th committee is they're bringing in a lot of members to talk from the trump inner circles, but the papers, that's how you piece it together. emails, notes, conversations, documentation to prove the point. >> like you said earlier, it is
about the details. and what is going to come out in this? and what impact is it going to have on the american public? let's remember with the investigations on trump, the robert mueller investigation, some of that was so much buried in legalese that it didn't necessarily penetrate as well. but this case, congress has an opportunity to really have an impact. >> reporters are going to stay with us. we'll continue the conversation and continue to track the legal developments. president biden's urgent plea for gun reform even as republicans are saying no. most of what the president wants. can a cream really reduce wrinkles? in blind clinical testing more than one hundred women tried revitalift triple power moisturizer, following a dedicated clinical protocol. a dermatologis showed me my results, to see that my smile lin and the wrinkles have dimished. it iproven.

the american people to help him. he spoke to republicans already saying no to most of what he wants. the president posing this question. >> how much more are you willing to accept in how many more innocent american lives must be taken before we say enough? >> the president's address to the nation included a wish list and reflected the political reality in washington. the president knows there are not enough votes for most of what he wants. the president using the word enough 11 times in his speech last night. >> how many more innocent american lives must be taken before we say enough, enough, enough? enough. enough. don't tell me raising the age won't make a difference. enough. enough. enough. enough. my fellow americans, enough. enough. it's time for each of us to do our part. >> the chief white house correspondent here with more on the president's ideas and
importantly kaitlyn, his strategy to pressure the congress. >> yes yrngs and he's doing that as he did in his evening address, that 17-minute speech delivered by the president. he doesn't appear to be doing so directly yet. because he told reporters today that his staff is having constant conversations with lawmakers and their staffs about this, and that he is being updated by his own staff on the latest on those negotiations on the talks that are playing out between democrats and republicans on capitol hill. but the keyword there, don, is staff. it does not sound based on what the president said and told reporters this morning that he is ready to get directly involved yet beyond delivering an address in the form he did last night where he did lay out specifics he wanted to see. it doesn't appear the president himself is getting on the phone, having these conversations with lawmakers, and the white house has said that's because they want to give it space for the negotiations to play out between the lawmakers themselves and when the time is right, the president will get involved. you heard him last night, being cautious on this, saying that it
is going to be an uphill battle for there to be some kind of consensus or agreement on capitol hill. he said it was unconscionable he believed a lot of senate republicans are not involved in the discussions at all. he sounded cautious today when he said he will try to see if there could be some progress to be made, but for now, that's far from clear. >> kaitlyn collins live at the white house. let's go to capitol hill and our chief correspondent. the big question the day after is did the president move the dial at all, specifically where it matters most, senate republicans? >> it's unclear, john. the senate has been on a week-long recess this week. they don't get back into session until next week, and that's really where the rubber is going to meet the road. we're going to have to make some decisions about whether or not they can get consensus on the narrow deal that could actually become law. and these are discussions they have been happening behind the scenes. staff level discussions are happening today, i'm told, and member level discussions will move forward next week. but the question will be ultimately if they do get a deal, will it be what the
president has called for? will it be satisfactory to a lot of people who wanted congress to do much more? at the moment, it's clear that democrats have already made a number of concessions on gun restrictions. access to guns. of course the assault weapons ban is something that is a nonstarter that joe biden has been pushing for, but also raising the age of 18 to 21 to purchase assault style -- semi automatic rifles. that's something that i am told that republicans are very skeptical of. it's unlikely at the moment they could get in the bill. can they get a narrow bill? will it be enough? can they get the support in all big questions as they come back to congress and make key decisions next week. >> live on the hill, thank you. let's bring the conversation in the room with our great reporters. here's what the president asked for. he said let's ban assault weapons and moved onto if we can't do that, let's move the purchase from 18 to 21. tougher background and new red flag laws. 19 states have those already,
and repeal liability shields for gun manufacturers. a detailed list after the president talking about congress doing something. he seemed to know the answer from the senate. >> it's an ambitious and democratic wish list. you have to figure out if you can get ten republicans. you got to listen to what mitch mcconnell is saying. he seems to want something more narrowly focussed on schools, on mental health. does that translate to some sort of red flag laws maybe money forward red flag laws or encouragement for law enforcement to enact the red flag laws. that's up to the state. and we've already seen many states try to enact the red flag laws. but they're either sold or vetoed at the state level, so we'll see. i mean, is this time different i this is the big question, given the spate of killings we've seen over the last two weeks and the mass number of deaths, particularly the kids in texas, is this time different and do
republicans feel some sort of pressure in a way they hadn't before. >> and the president speaks, president now, vice president the obama years, nearly four decades in the united states senate. he has been in this debate many times over the years which is why he knows there are a handful of republicans in the. but there are no new gun restrictions. the american people raised the question about senate republicans. >> my god. the fact of the majority of the senate republicans don't want any of these proposals even to be debated or come up for a vote, i find it unconscionable. we can't fail the american people again. >> the president says unconscionable. some people at home are going to get mad at me, but i want to get to the mold political map. this is a map of the battle ground states for the senate. a red states are currently held by republicans. if you look at the red states currently held by republicans, maybe pennsylvania with a strong
gun culture but the philadelphia suburbs. that's a laboratory if you want to fight the election. when you look at the red states, republican seats, those are states where they don't worry about not passing new gun reforms. in the states republicans are trying to take away from democrats, can you sell it in nevada? if you look at the map, there are one or two places where mitch mcconnell might think okay, this potentially is bad for us. one or two you can deal with. that's why he feels no pressure. >> he feels no pressure, and that doesn't get to the number of ten. there's no one who understands the difficulty of this assignment more than president biden. we all saw him during sandy hook when he walked the halls of congress literally, and if those 26 deaths weren't horrific enough to prompt legislation back when the senate had 54 democrats, it's impossible to imagine that something broader can get done. it is day ju view. the question is is the time different? is there just enough of a sense that people are fed up about
this? i remain incredibly skeptical about this. even on background check laws. perhaps the trigger laws. that doesn't mean the president shouldn't try or give speeches like that. that is what his moral authority is for. that's what the megaphone is for. but even people i talked to at the white house, the president himself, you know, skeptical that anything is different this time. >> you pose the question this time. you pose the question, too, after newtown, after pick, after a church in south carolina. a supermarket in buffalo. the question comes up, a nightclub in orlando, florida. so john cornyn, the republican senator says this. if the senate can't agree on a legislative response after, it will be embarrassing. if you want progress, that's encouraging. the question is what's on the table. let's listen to a house hearing yesterday. everybody says will this time be different? if you think about the debate in the house, it doesn't seem so. >> you know what didn't have due
process? you know who didn't have their constitutional right to life respected? the kids at parkland and sandy hook and view vauld, and buffalo. the list goes on and on. to spare me the bull [ bleep ] about constitutional rights. >> this is a seven round magazine that's lawful. it doesn't fit. so this gun would be banned. >> that is not loaded. >> i'm at my house. can i do whatever i want with my guns. >> to make progress on anything that is difficult, you need to have a conversation. everyone needs to come in with an open mind. it doesn't exist. >> it really doesn't exist. it's almost amazing what has happened in congress, in washington. the ability to get something done is almost impossible on so many different issues. this kind of reminds me, like, there's so much talk about wanting biden to take executive action, to take other steps, but we've seen how hard it is to make the ball move on certain
issues like immigration, for example. and if biden tries to do something by himself, to take action, you just showed that map of all the red states. critics from the states, attorney generals from those states are going to come out and file a suit. and you're going to be all over this. i think what it really shows is just how the challenges of the system in washington today and how hard it is to get anything done in the democratic way. >> we'll see. we'll see. that's a great point. back to your point, will the president travel the country this year, even if he's going to lose, will he travel the country to make the point? that's something to watch. a brand new report tells us the committee keeps adding jobs and wages are climbing. the president says it is a historic recovery. but inflation still has many americans in a sour mood. this... is the planning efeffect. this is how it f feels to knw you have a wealth plan that covers everything that's important to yoyou. this is what it's likeke to he a dedicated fidelity advisor

today's new jobs report is strong. very strong. the american economy added a robust 390,000 jobs in may and the unemployment rate at 3.6%. president bide an short time ago celebrating the numbers as historic. he also acknowledged persistent inflation is straining family budgets and making americans pessimistic about the economy even though the jobs report and other indicators do show strength. >> today is good news. a lot of americans remain
anxious. i understand the feeling. there's no denying that high prices around gasoline and food are a real problem for people. there's another reason for the american people to feel confident that we'll meet the challenges. because of the enormous progress on the economy. >> let's get important perspective from the host of public radio's "marketplace". great to see you. let's focus on the jobs report. hiring across sectors. when you look at the new data, what does it tell you about the fundamentals of the economy? >> the fundamentals of this economy are and have been strong for a long time. if you want a job in this economy, you can get one. if you're trying to move ahead in the economy, you can do that. the catch, of course, is as the president said, and as we all know, inflation at 8.3% by one measure is just -- it's eating into people's livelihoods. we all see it every day. that's the challenge. but look, here's the thing to take away from today's numbers. if you're jay powell trying to
run the economy, this is too good for you. you don't want to see 390,000 new jobs. wage pressure drives inflation. they are trying to cool the economy a tiny bit. >> sometimes good news can be too good? >> yes. >> and you talk about jerome powell and the fed. the president is hoping the fed can help him and bend the inflation arc for american families and his own politics. you look at the university of michigan consumer sentiment index, and you almost don't need to look at the numbers. just look at the right side of your screen. consumer sentiment, even though the economy is adding robust jobs. if you have a job, you're probably getting a raise. if you want to switch, you can. the americans are in a funk. that's the two by four of inflation. gas prices and food prices hitting them in the head? >> that's right. consumer sentiment is interesting. we feel terrible about the economy with some reason. i'm paying 6 $.39 a gallon at the gas station across the street from my house. it's california, but on a national average, it's 4 .70.
that's not doable. when you look at consumers feeling bad, the flip side is the consumers are still spending. because yes, wages are slowing down a little bit. but in the aggregate, wages plus the number of hours worked plus the ability to get a job in this economy are staying just a little bit ahead of inflation, and that is why consumers are still spending. as we all know, consumer spending, or spending on behalf of consumers by the government is 70% of economic activity. and that's what's driving the growth in this economy that the fed and others are seeing for this quarter and for the outquarters. >> grateful for your insights. thank you. >> glad to do it. >> let's come back to the reporters in the room. let's put up the graphic again, consumer sentiment. this is one of the graphics i use in covering the campaigns over the years. if you look 2012, line is mostly up, obama wins.
2020, it's dropping like a rock. that's the coronavirus pandemic. donald trump loses the white house. then you come to 2022, it is dropping again like a rock. if you're joe biden in your political environment, that's an economic statistic. that's a political whoa. >> a warning sign. they're following that more than anything educational. one of the main drivers, of course the price of gas. that's what generally every voter i talk to across the country, republican, democrat, regardless of where they are, that is what is driving the pessimism, the dark cloud that's hanging over this economy. the up side for this administration is the fundamentals, they are strong underneath. they can get beyond this. but there's no sign that they're going to get beyond this. the challenge for the president is trying to walk this careful line of not talking down the economy. but not saying it's too good, because no one believes that. that's not what they feel. every time he sort of touts the strengths, he also has to say but i feel your pain, and that sort of leaves things stuck in a neutral zone. the reality is there's very
little he can do except watch this unfold. >> you make a key point, the credibility with the american people is critical. it's going to take time. inflation is not going to go away by inflation day. can the president convince the american people he's telling the truth about where we are. gas prices, a new record high almost every day. it's not much a president can do. gas is $4.76 on average a gallon. $5.39 if you buy premium. the president is going to the middle east in europe. his staff says he will go to saudi arabia and meet with the crowned for instance. his staff says that. his staff says in part that's to try to get them to increase oil production. the president was asked about that today. that's not what he said. >> i'm not sure -- i have no direct plans at the moment, but let me tell you that i have been engaged in trying to work with how we can bring more stability
and peace in the middle east. i'm not going to change my view on human rights, but as president of the united states, it's my job to bring peace if i can. >> the last part is you remember candidate joe biden called the crowned prince a pariah because of abuses by the government. >> i think he has been trying to push back and he's concerned about this narrative, not a narrative. he did call the crowned prince a pariah, and he's concerned about the controversy surrounding that. he's talking about going there for -- trying to invoke peace in the region. but obviously you showed the numbers. oil is a huge issue. saudi arabia is one of the big eest producers of oil. the administration, the white house has been there, staff has been there trying to encourage officials in saudi arabia to pull out more oil. and they've only gotten so far. so it is hard not to see that
this is a really big part of it. he's also going to venezuela, this is an issue he's trying to tackle and he's facing some controversy in the process. >> why not just say look, this job is hard. sometimes you got to sit down with bad actors? >> and that is sort of joe biden's kind of political identity. right? he shoots from the shoulder and levels with the american people. this i think gets at a larger problem the white house has with communication and the staff being on the same page as the president. the president saying one thing. the staff saying another. this is yet another example of that, and we've seen that particularly, i think, around foreign policy many times and the staff has had to walk back something. the president said we'll see what happens. but this is critical to the american economy. the idea that sometimes americans have to do business with bad actors all across the world. >> and when the staff says one thing and the president says another, it extends the story. it extends the shelf life of the story that might not be pleasant. this is day 100 of vladimir
putin's war. president zelenskyy says russia controls one fifth of ukraine. ng more than one hundred women tried revitalift triple power moisturizer, following a dedicated clinical protocol. a dermatologist showed me my resultsts, it was pretty astonishing to see that my smile lines and d the wrinkles have diminished.d. it is prproven. triple power visibly reduces wrinkles, firms and brightens. a few of my friends saw me and they're like 'wow.' i saw results in 1 week. it really made me feel and look a lot younger. it absolutely works. revitalift triple power moisturizer from l'oreal paris. it does what it says, simple as that.

we spoke about what they see as the biggest challenge facing this committee. >> the big e challenge is now do we compete with a story of fantasy? how do we compete with the compelling sort of apocalyptic conspiracy theory that we have to take over the government or there's globalists. facts are boring. and i think the thing that we have to do is we have to be able to present the facts in a compelling way. >> reporters are back with us. he says deal account facts in a compelling way. one thing we know, and we could put on the screen, we know who has already met with the committee and it includes a who is who of trump world, including the president's daughter and the president's son and the president's son-in-law and a whole bunch of people inside and outside the west wing close to donald trump. when the committee puts their testimony up, assuming some of it is unfavorable to the former president of the united states, that's a trigger. >> yeah. i mean, we all know how easily triggered former president
donald trump is. anything that is slightly against him sets him off. i'd be curious to see what ivanka trump received, what jared kushner testified and what come out and see how he responds to that. because family, obviously, is a different scenario. that said, i am also interested in how what comes out and whether the justice department does anything with that information. >> will the justice department do anything with it is part of it. we know that some of the focus is going to be about people around mike pence. and mike pence that day. the president of the united states was at the capitol, the crowd was chanting hang mike pence. he defied the president. the president wanted to come up with a theory that didn't exist, block the electoral college. the former chief of staff may testify. former federal judge who helped the vice president go through the legal options and they decided there weren't any. some of the people have credibility. the people do have credibility in trump world, or at least did have credibility in trump world. can they change minds? >> we'll see. i think by this point, it seems
like most minds are made up. those are respected, conservatives. so we will see if any republicans on the hill, their minds can be changed. i think in terms of the viewers, we're going to learn a lot. a road map of the text messages, who was calling and sending messages into the oval office on the afternoon of the sixth. that is just interesting for history. that is what this is likely going to be about. a document for history, a broader understanding of this. >> it may not be more than that. >> i think that's right. this committee has had a pretty good media strategy so far. leaking different text messages from mark meadows in different papers into different outlets. here they are, having this first hearing at 8:00, which typically is reserved for big events that the public should listen so. so in that way, we'll see. they've clearly reserved some of the more damning information for this hearing. you know, in that revealing whatever people like ivanka trump said or jared kushner or some of the other folks.
i think it's going to i think land with the american people in a way that might not change minds but will certainly breakthrough. >> i'll say the same thing about the gun debate. what's the heart of coming into a conversation with an open mind. watch, listen, see. when we come back, russia making key gains in ukraine on this day 100 of the war. age-related macular degeneration may lead to severe vision loss. and if you're taking a multivitamin alone, you may be missing a critical pce. preservision. preservision areds 2 contains the only clinically oven nutrient formula recommeed by the national eye institute

the census tells you a lot about people. you could tell on the census records that at very, very young ages, they were cooks, they were farm hands, they were servants. there's auralia, 4-years old. i have learned a lot about the rest of the family, it was really finding gold. one of my grandfathers, didn't even know his birthdate. i figured out the exact year he was born. the census records fill in gaps, it helped me push the door open.

@zelenskyy marking the 100th day of vladimir putin's war telling the world victory shall be ours. russia is making big gains in the east fast. the last ukrainian stronghold, on the map, invading forces there. already control about 80%. about 80% of the city there. now one fifth of the entire country, the president says. the president zelenskyy says is under russian control. let's get to ben wedeman in key ef f-- kyiv for us. what's the latest? >> well, the latest really is that all eyes are focussed on the situation in the east. in a city that i was in in april, and back then it was taking a daily pounding from russian forces. but the ukrainians were able to hold on, but it appears that the russians are using their massive advantage in terms of artillery just to pulverize that city,
pulverize the resistance, only about 20 % of this city is still under ukrainian control. and we've heard from the ukrainian general staff today that russia is assembling more forces to take a strategic town just about a 25 minute drive north of that city, and that would be where they have tried in the past to take that city. it does appear that the russians have given up their ambitious plans, certainly kyiv couldn't be more peaceful at the moment. they have given up on plans of taking kyiv. the country as a whole, but definitely the east is taking the brunt of the artillery from the russians at the moment. ben wedeman live in kyiv. thank you for your time. hope to see you back here on monday. try to have a nice weekend. ana cabrera picks up coverage after a break. uh, how come we don't call ourselves bikers anymore? i mean, "riders" is cool, but "bikikers"...is really coo.
