tv   Erin Burnett Out Front  CNN  June 3, 2022 4:00pm-5:00pm PDT

4:00 pm
so it's important to control of the senate and i would argue it's important to who wins the presidency. >> yes, so once again, the headline that david mccormick has conceded to dr. mehmet oz. there was a recount going on but mccormick simply concluded he did not have the necessary. >> no longer candidate, back to being a business man. >> thank you very much to our viewers for watching, i'm wolf blitzer in "the situation room," erin burnett, "outfront," starts right now. "outfront" next, 100 days of war. putin's deadly invasion hitting the 100 day mark as his forces are seizing cities and towns across the east of ukraine and tonight we're learning the u.s. and allies are discussing ways to end the three-month war. plus, trump's former adviser hand-cuffed, laggshing out in court after being indicted for january 6th investigation.
4:01 pm
then, i don't want to die, quote of a student who called 911 as a gunman was inside her cl classroom. did the police on the scene ever eve hear her plea for help? i'm erin burnett, 100 days of war, destruction and death, grim milestone in putin's invasion of ukraine. his blitzkrieg on kyiv failed but tonight, ukrainian military officials say once again putin is ramping up, flooding ukraine with more troops and reenforcements and artillery as i speak and they say he's said to have, quote, partial success in the east of ukraine in a key city of severodonetsk. but success in this horrific war for putin, again, just means leveling places, utter destruction, rendering them unhabitable. it's unclear how much of is left of severodonetsk at this point and the red cross, as destruction rushes past in eastern ukraine, in their words, defies comprehension. these images show what is left of a high school in the east in
4:02 pm
another town, every single window blown out. there's nothing left, it's a high school. no one is going to be able to do anything there, right, unhabitable. and latest intelligence from the united kingdom predicts russia will control the entire region of luhansk in two weeks. obviously, a significant expansion over what putin had controlled in occupied regions of there prior to february. now zelenskyy saying russia controls 20% of ukraine, he is defiant, saying ukraine will be ours and ukraine will take back all territory. today, though, president biden not striking the same defiant tone as zelenskyy. >> it's their territory, i'm not going to tell them what they should and shouldn't do. >> but he went on to say, it appears to me, i'm quoting him, at some point along the line there's going to have to be a negotiated settlement there. different than defiant and
4:03 pm
taking back all occupied territory. matthew, you know, obviously, you were there when the russians attempted that eventually failed blitzkrieg on kyiv. you spent a lot of time there throughout the war. so what is the latest on the ground tonight. and how have things changed over the course of the 100 days? >> in terms of the military situation, it's still very dire. there's fierce fighting taking place, not here in kyiv but in the east of the country, reporting where russia has been making slow but significant gains. and there's been fighting in a counter-offensive that the ukrainians have undertaken to the south of the donbas region because their assessment is that russia is overstretched in the donbas, it is leaving the areas, or some of the areas it's already conquered exposed and so they're attempting with some success, they say, to take those areas back. and they're sort of claiming dozens of settlements in that
4:04 pm
southern part of eastern ukraine, sort of on a daily basis. and so it's an eb and flow in fighting. in terms of the situation in kyiv, well, i mean it's amazing, because when i was last here back in march and, you know, from the start of the war, the city cleared out. people were, every night, taking refuge in bunkers, in subways, to shelter from the barrage of cruise missiles and air strikes that were hitting the ukrainian capitol. that stopped. people have come back into the city. life has resumed and i was walking around the streets today and you could almost forget that a war had taken place, but of course, you scratch the surface of that and you know that this country is traumatized. that just to the north, in the suburbs, north of the ukrainian capitol, terrible human rights abuses of the type that we haven't seen for a generation in europe. the destruction of infrastructure, the millions of people who have been displaced
4:05 pm
around the country, but there is this resilience here, still, and a commitment to continue fighting no matter what. >> matthew chance, thank you very much, live from kyiv tonight. and "outfront" now, dan rice, he is now the special adviser to general valerie salusney, commander in chief of all ukrainian forces and with me retired army brigadier general mark kimmett former assistant secretary of state for political affairs as well. let me begin with you, i mentioned the latest assessment from the uk, intelligence arm of the defense ministry. they say russia is likely to control all of the whole of the luhansk region, donbas, within two weeks. when up look at what's happening on the ground, do you think this is accurate, that russia is making these sorts of gains? >> well, i really do. i think the british intelligence is about right, but i think it's important to understand that the fight is for the entire donbas.
4:06 pm
the russian separatist pretty well control hluhansk so i thin it's important the battles are taking place showing the russians are gaining a bit, but i don't think this is going to end up being a strategic victory for the russians if they take luhansk back because the real goal is to take the entire donbas and they're nowhere near doing that now. >> that, of course, is the big point, zelenskyy saying russia controls 20% of ukraine. to anyone listening, that sounds like a lot. it is a lot. double to what they had claims pri to have the invasion, when they had just parts of the donbas and crimea. so you spent time with the general, commander in chief of the armed forces. what is his state of mind right now? >> well, i think they have done an amazing job from 2014 through 2022 to get ready and prepare for this war so the rest of the world might not realize but when russia took crimea in the donbas
4:07 pm
in 2014, ukraine knew they were coming back so they've been preparing a warfoot and get really did an amazing job and u.s. special forces prepared them for this battle very well, twained 26,000 ukrainians and as did national guard and western nato nations, they trained them, armed them and got them ready for this so i think the world owes congress and don't say this often, but thank you congress, actually did right, two, three administrations, did it right. general sslusney now i think is very confident they can win -- >> even with the steady setbacks, small but consistent now? >> absolutely. winning the battle of kyiv was an amazing military victory and that was due to better leadership, better strategy and really two weapon systems, the stinger, and the javelin, which could reach out and have 93% kill rate in combat so it would stall the convoys coming through
4:08 pm
the four major avenues of advance. so they'd hit javelins then pour artillery. artillery killed most of the russians, the 30,000 russians but javelins are key, because of its precision. now on the offense going back and trying to reclaim that land, that's not necessarily the weapons they need, they really need artillery. they're out-gunned tremendously, 20 to one in some placines. you can't have artillery advancing across the open planes. >> it is very open, yeah. >> so he thinks if he has the right weapons and basically needs long-range artillery from the west, multiple long range rocket systems which have just been approved, which is fantastic, and needs drones to see the enemy and scout it. but if he has that, he thinks they can take it and they don't want to concede crimea or the donbas. >> and general, when you say that's western thinking, they're saying go back to the lines before 2014 which i think does
4:09 pm
kind of shock some politicians in the west. right? they kind of see that as something, a no-go line, but general, when you hear president biden say it appears to me that at some point along the line there's going to have to be a negotiated settlement here, i see daylight, big daylight between him and zelenskyy because there is no negotiated settlement where ukraine is taking back territory in donbas or crimea. >> i think that's right. president zelenskyy is not only the military commander but also is the chief rallier for the ukrainian troops. i don't necessarily believe he can keep the troops in the field at some point if he believes that in his heart of hearts, that he has got to make a negotiated settlement at some point, but look, wars end when both sides feel they're losing. both sides now think they're winning but i really believe that having been an artillery officer for 30 years, and understanding how the russians fight, i think at this point,
4:10 pm
it's going to end up being much like the frontlines of world war i, a frozen conflict where neither side can do much more than inflict tremendous losses on both sides and unable to take significant amounts of land from this point forward. i hope i'm wrong, the ukrainians deserve more than that, but that's the reality. >> and so general, do you expect the losses that zelenskyy talked about, 6,800 ukrainians today, staggering, do you expect that to continue? >> i do. in fact, i think it could very well be this new general they brought in, devornikov certainly understands the russian tactics using fires instead of maneuvers, i think will continue to rubble the area in front of him and unfortunately that area is going to have not only infrastructure but a whole lot of civilians as well, and ukrainian troops. >> and dan, a final word to you. the commander general.
4:11 pm
is he prepared for that? the troops prepared for that? the continued staggering loss rate? >> yes i went on battle field with several of the commanders and toured the battle of kyiv battlefield and they are resolute in this. you hear him talk about donbas and crimea, talk about a kid ten years old now drafted in the russian army fighting against his own people in ukraine. they can't tolerate that. so even if this is a stalemate like i believe general kimmet is correct could end up in a stalemate, they want to punish russia until russia has to pull out so i think the negotiated settlement could be russia pulling out after they realize they have to get out or the sanctions won't be relieved. >> we'll see whether there's that will from the west, you know, so much of this depend on governments that are not ukrainian. thank you both so very much, appreciate your time. next, top trump white house aid indicted, arrested, brought to court today and then lashed out as you see our evan perez was there inside the courtroom. he's "outfront" next.
4:12 pm
plus texas state senator gutierrez will be back, tells us the commander who led the response to the elementary school shooting in texas didn't even have a police radio with him during the massacre so did pete aradondo know about the repeat 911 calls? gutierrez is my guest. and biden blaming one person for the rising price of food and gas. >> this is the putin price hike. putin price hike. moderate to severe eczema still disrupts my skin. despite treatment it disrupts my skin with itch. it disrupts my skin with rash. but now, i can disrupt eczema with rinvoq. rinvoq is not a steroi topical, or injection. it's one pill, once a day, rinvoq is not a steroi topical, or injection. th's effective without topical steroids. many taking rinvoq saw clear or almost-clear skin while some saw up to 100% clear skin. plus, they felt fast itch relief

4:16 pm
tonight two major developments in the house select committee investigation into january 6th, navarro, appear after being indicted, and charged with contempt feel congress. and new york times tonight reporting on january 5th, the day before the insurrection, then vice-president chief of staff, mark short, said trump would turn against pence and it could create a security risk for pence. that's a pretty sun a he thing, now secret service official tells cnn that they insist the concern about violence directed at pence or any risk posed by trump's actions was never communicated, but obviously, you
4:17 pm
know, this is a pretty incredible thing to say. evan perez is "outfront" and you were in the courtroom, let's star start with navarro when he faced the judge, fireworks for lack of a better word. what did you see? >> it was an airing of grievances by peter navarro. these hearing as you know tend to be very short, brief, magistrate lays out the charges you're facing and you're on your way. in this case, peter navarro decided to explain why he believes he should not be charged with these two counts, but by the justice department for contempt of congress, and he went into not only his grievances against the fbi, against prosecutors, i said that the committee is a sham committee, he said this is an abuse of power by congress and the justice department, he also complained about the fact that
4:18 pm
he lives just across the street from the fbi building across the street from the fbi and was not arrested there, he was arrested instead at national airport on his way to take a flight to nashville, he says. obviously, this was a bit of a performance by peter navarro and the judge warned him that, you know, we know you like to talk to the cameras, be careful what you say when you leave and of course, he went to the cameras at the end of the hearing, erin and told us that among the punishments he endured today was that the fbi -- sorry, the u.s. marshalls, through him in the jail cell of john hinkley jr., that's how it went. >> and immediately, the performance art. i mean it is pretty incredible to imagine. in a sense, it's -- oh, just make a mockery of the system. evan, please stay with me, i want to bring eli honig to the
4:19 pm
conversation. so, before peter navarro i want to start with mike pence news. his chief of staff reportedly warns the secret service trump was knogoing to turn on pence p to ha, prior to the insurrection and then of course, that happened. >> mike pence, i hope you'll stand up for the good of our con constitution and the good of our country and if you're not, i'm going to be very disappointed in you. >> all right. so he said he's going to turn and he does, and then the day before the insurrection, according to the new york times, short says to secret service that this could create a specific security risk for pence. right? so this is like, a security risk, right, actually something could physically happen to him, also turned out to be true as we remember from the mob chanting hang mike pence, hang mike pence, he's escorted out. his life is in danger. so eli, what does it tell you that the former vice-president's
4:20 pm
chief of staff reportedly warns the secret service the day before the insurrection that essentially, there could be violence at the capitol where mike pence was going to be. that's what this warning would sum up as. >> yeah, erin, tells me all the signals were there. one of the big questions we're all going to be looking for as we head into these hearings next week is to what extent to the administration know there was a risk of violence the next day. mark short knew, he predicted it almost to a tee and that's not because mark short is some magical soothe sayer, it's because the information was right there and one of the main things mark short bases his ultimately correct prediction of violence on was donald trump's own words and actions. and erin also underscores for me the real key witnesses we hear from at the hearings, we don't know specifically, i think it's very unlikely we hear donald trump's inner circle, the mark meadows, kevin mccarthies, but
4:21 pm
there's a whole world of deputy and see chiefs of staff like mark short that can tell the tale so i'm looking at mark short as potentially crucial witness as we get into this. >> so evan, i want to emphasize here, mark short, as the new i don't remember times is reporting, then he's telling the secret service there could be a security risk at the capitol because that's where mike pence was going to be during the protest. on january 5th, that's why, i want to keep emphasizing what this is, that he wanted to raise a flag on this and i know, evan, select committee will hold the first public hearing on thursday night, that short will be called to testify before the committee. so what do you think happens here? >> well, look. i think this makes mark short and the testimony from the other aides of mike pence, look, we're not going to hear from mike pence, the former vice-president
4:22 pm
pence, but what we're going to hear from are people very, very close in and people who were in his presence, people who were there as he was being evacuated from the senate. and so what that's going to help the committee draw a picture of is exactly what they were hearing, not only from the former president in the days leading up to the day, but also just the day itself, right? and what we know now, what has emerged in the last few days is that they had a plan, they had a plan to try to get pence to essentially recuse himself or remove himself from the equation and perhaps put senator gransley to put, to get in some ways, set aside the election results. again, for the committee, they want to be able to draw a picture not only of all the different ways pence was pressured, but also what else they had in mind as their plan b. >> look, for history books, for accuracy, and in the near term, of course, politically for the
4:23 pm
midterms how the hearings go is immensely important. eli, we know hundreds of people fed into that but peter navarro not among them, he gets indicted and the whole performance act today, but two months after referred for contempt. we've not heard from steve bannon, dan skavino, who was there with social media for the president, we haven't heard from mark meadows, chief of skaftaffd not going to hear from these guys as you point out so will the committee deliver what it needs to deliver, a full, fair story, without them? >> i still think they k erin. as a prosecutor, you don't always get to put everyone you want on the stand. a lot of bad guys in the prosecution, not exactly saying that's exactly here, but a lot of the main people you want to question you, co can't, they wo tail take the fifth. you can make a case, though, based on other witnesses, on
4:24 pm
text, recordings and one thing about the indictment of peter navarro today i think sends a message from doj to any other witnesses out there. we saw too many people casually brush off the subpoenas without consequences, well this is very real. peter navarro can put all the history on it he wants but the reality is if he is convicted here, will go to federal prison at least a month, that is what the law says. so there are real consequences here and anyone else out there on the borderline, should i comply next week, will take a lesson from this that there could be real criminal consequences. >> all right, thank you both. next, terrifying new details about one of the 911 calls of a child made to police during the school massacre in uvalde texas. plus, pennsylvania's razor thin primary, that pitted mehmet oz against hedge fund and treasury executive, david mccormimick.

4:29 pm
rob elementary school shooting did not have a police radio with him during the massacre, according to state senator gutierrez who i'll speak to in a moment. we're finding this out as a teacher's aide who was wrongly cows accuse of propping the door open, letting him in. >> reporter: it was supposed to be an end-of-the-year class party, before it became a nightmare. >> she saw everything from the time he wrecked, to the time they were taken out of there. >> meeting a coworker for food for the party when she saw a car crash, she saw, went to get her phone and called 911 to report the accident. then returned to the door. >> she looks and sees him. he has a weapon that she can't identify but a big weapon slung over him and he hops over the fence and starts running towards
4:30 pm
her. >> reporter: so she kicks the door shut. >> she expect it to lock? >> absolutely, she thought it would lock. >> she scrambles into a nearby classroom as she hears gunshots. >> she hides. the 911 call drops, she doesn't call back, doesn't attempt a call back because she doesn't want to make any noise. there's a counter she hits but it's exposed she said at that point she thought she was going to die and made her peace with death. >> reporter: so she hears every single gunshot. >> every single goneshot. >> reporter: but she was one of the lucky ones who survived. days later though, hears law enforcement say she had left the door the shooter used open. she's second guessing herself? >> made her second guess her own mem memories and she already spoke to the fbi and rangers and told them what happened. >> reporter: rangers eventually
4:31 pm
corrected the record. as community grieves, a flurry of unanswered questions linger, including more about texas state police chief arredondo acting as commander during the shooting. >> i had been told this person, the incident commander did not have radio communication, and i don't know as to why. >> reporter: that question as the 911 calls were properly relayed to first responder on the scene. one of those 911 calls from a 10-year-old student inside the classroom and according to transcripts reviewed by new york times, the student said there are a lot of bodies and i don't want to die. my teacher is dead. my teacher is dead. please send help. send help for my teacher. she is shot but still alive. the call lasted about 17 minutes. gunfire was heard in the background at times and the call was made more than 30 minutes after the shooting began, the times reports. the teaching aide, amelia marin
4:32 pm
now filed legal documents to get a deposition from daniel defense, the manufacturer of the gun used in the shooting with her attorney saying because the shooter got the weapons on his 18th birthday, was likely planning the purchases beforehand. >> the motivation to get that gun was from since he was a minor. are there, you know, gun company that is are marketing to minors? is that what they're doing? how many mass shootings do we have to have by 18-year-old men? it's just cookie-cutter. so what are they doing to change? >> reporter: and it's worth noting that presupposition doesn't formally accuse the gun manufacturer of wrong-doing but looking to investigate whether amelia marin has any basis to file a claim. separately tonight, we've been following the first school board meeting, i should say, in uvalde
4:33 pm
since the shooting happened. parents have been slipping up and sharing their pain about how they've been processing. one mother got there and pleaded with the schoolboard to help keep her son safe saying my son is deathly afraid of school now and the school superintendant saying he didn't have updates on the investigation but reiterated these students would not be going back to rob elementary and share a plan on their schooling in the future when they have one. erin. >> thank you very much, now to texas state senator, rolan gutierrez, appreciate your time tonight. what more can you tell me about chief arredondo's communications at the school from what you know? >> well, erin, there's not a whole lot i can tell you. it's pretty sad that i'm here having to break news like i did yesterday. that's not really what my role should be nor what i want it to be, and i don't want to lose sight of what we're really talking about.
4:34 pm
today i went to a funeral where i saw a little fourth grade girl in a coffin and i consoled her parents as best i could and i would like the focus to be on that but i understand the world wants to know where the failures happened. the failures clearly happened with law enforcement at every level. a real concern with regard to him not having that communication is why in the world should anybody keep suggesting he's the incident commander if he doesn't have the necessary communications at the time? and so , if indeed, doesn't hav his radio, how in the world are the other law enforcement agencies suggesting that man is the incident commander? the folks accountable to the sledge legislature are the straight troopers, i asked a report of how many were in the hall way at that time, what i got was anywhere between two and 13 officers in that hallway. why in the world did they tie it
4:35 pm
to mr. arredondo or anybody else suggesting he is the incident commander. none of this makes sense to me, and with all of that, little children might have died that could have been saved. >> yes, i mean when you say how many of them were there and they answer because they are accountable to you in the state legislature, two to 13 of them, two to 13 of them there during that entire time, 40 plus minutes while children were killed. you did tell me last night, senator, you had requested the detailed report to get all this information and more and that it was not going to be released today. do you have any update on that? they told you when you're going to get it? >> no, so what i've been told is i am no longer getting reports and neither is the media. that it's now in the hands of the district attorney's office of that region, and that, you know, she is going to be entitled and in charge of the entire investigation going forward from here.
4:36 pm
my point as a policy maker, the third function of my job is to make sure this doesn't happen again. how in the world are we going to be able to do anything if we can't figure out what happened in that building in those 40 minutes? the governor wants to talk about school safety, i think that the issues here are bigger than that. how in the world are we going to find out if the school is safe or not if we don't have the information. the errors that occurred here, the systemic failure, human errors that ended up with this terrible loss of life, everybody is accountable. every one of the law enforcement agencies in the building, including the legislatures and including our governor who has done nothing on this issue, this is now the seventh massacre and he's refused to do anything about this issue. >> senator, i mentioned the 911 call, from a 10-year-old girl, ch chloe torres, still alive, thank god, but so many her classmates
4:37 pm
not. one of the calls, there's so many bodies, i don't want to die, my teacher is dead, my teacher is dead, please send help, send help for my teacher. she is shot, but still alive. that call lasted 17 minutes. the gunman was still firing during that call. so more people died. what more are you learning senator, do you know anything more about what happened in that room when police stood outside and heard it for 45 minutes? >> what i issued yesterday a press conference probably left more unanswered questions but again, we need law enforcement to have these briefings, not the local elected official or the senator from the area. what i know is that the police department dispatched the calls and they have a list of 17 different first responders that they dispatch those calls to, including the school district is on that list, dps is included on that list, along with other police, along with sheriff's department and so on, along with
4:38 pm
the federal government, the cbp. and so, what we don't know is who those calls were dispatched to. which of those agencies? we don't even know if those calls were dispatched to the isd chief, arredondo. we know he didn't have his radio at this time to be able to get them, whether he was communicating that information or not. and so, if every one of those officers or those units are receiving those 911 calms, then i've got a very, very big concern. but unfortunately, right now, you and i are not getting that information, and it appears that folks are hiding behind a so-called criminal investigation when i really think that the public and community at large in uvalde needs to know the very specific answers of how their local law enforcement failed, and how their state law enforcement failed.
4:39 pm
>> senator, thank you very much, i appreciate you taking the time tonight. >> thank you, ma'am. next, biden, touting the new jobs report. yet, voters are blaming him for inflation which is getting worse. so what more can biden do? and queen elizabeth will miss a second day of celebrations for the jubilee as millions across england mark her 70 years on the throne. immune system, energy ...even skin. so h healthier can look a lot cvs. healthier happens togetherer.

4:43 pm
he's making our public schools work for all of us. new tonight, republican david mccormick conceding the primary to trump-backed candidate mehmet oz, ackno acknowledging he will come up short in the recount, no claims of fraud, just graciously conceding. the news comes as oz, opponent, to john fetterman who said he almost died, and will take more time to get back on the campaign trail. "outfront" now, former special adviser to president obama, van, i want to start there. obviously, dave mccormick, you know, just forget the fraud, forget all that, just a gracious concession.
4:44 pm
nice to see that in american politics. we're now down to oz and fetterman in this race. it is going to be one of the most important in the midterms, could decide who controls the senate. now have fetterman admitting he almost died, will take more time to get on the campaign trail. you got oz, now, the republican candidate. this is obviously a crucial race and it is going to be unpredictable. >> look, i mean, this is kind of hollywood stuff in that fetterman is known for being the strong guy, he's strong, he's independent, he says what he means, means what he says, dresses like a biker, and now he's in a hospital bed kind of looking weak, that's the one thing you don't want to do is look weak. so i think, you know, it's making people really nervous. at the same time, you know, the condition that he has, a condition a lot of people have. it's not like he's got something that medical interventions don't make a difference for -- they
4:45 pm
do. so i think you'll see him back on the campaign trail being the tough, strong guy, democrats need that from him. but this oz, mccormick show down of what a nail biter, 970 votes separating oz from mccormick, mccormick has to be applauded for being a gentlemen. recount's not over, he said look, i can do math, he's a hedge fund guy, i can do math, i can't overcome this, i'm going to concede. that shows a decpth of characte, unfortunately, that's been missing. now you have, on the other hand, you have oz, trump pointing this out, supporting someone who would be the first muslim in the u.s. senate ever but never mentions that so a very interesting thing. you got a celebrity muslim against a very unusual, unconventional democrat. it's going to be a big match-up, but i think it's a big blow to people who backed mccormick,
4:46 pm
traditional conservatives who thought they could stop donald trump. >> right, and so many people, listen to all of this, 970 votes, would be just yelling fraud, and it is, you know, i don't want to sit here and say how amazing it is or isn't but i think in the world we live in, it's important to emphasize how significant it is that he's doing the right thing. this comes, van, as, when you talk about control of the senate. president biden has a problem with the economy, right, and now he gets jobs out in may, 390,000, says it's excellent. he acknowledges that inflation is a problem today. here's how he put it. >> there's no denying that high prices particularly around gasoline and food are real problem for people. but there's every reason for the american people to feel confident that we'll meet these challenges. >> van, gallop says only 14% of americans say the economy is in good or excellent shape, 85% say poor or fair. how alarmed should biden be?
4:47 pm
>> yeah, pretty alarmed i think they are over there. here's a problem -- his job numbers are good, but what that means is 300,000 people who were sad last month are happy this month they have a job. but 300 million people who are sad last month still sad because of inflation. in other words, good job numbers are good. you judge the president on that, but they only affect the people who got the job, which is always going to be a minority. inflation hits everybody. inflation picks the pocket of everybody so you got 300 million sad americans versus 300 million happy americans, that's his problem. so, you know, he's got to do more on inflation. >> yep, and that is, of course, the big crisis. you get those jobs and money isn't going to buy you as much as before so even that a double-edged sword. van, thank you. next, republicans have called the uvalde school shooting a mental health issue. but when it comes to treating menta
