tv   New Day Weekend With Christi Paul and Boris Sanchez  CNN  June 4, 2022 5:00am-6:00am PDT

5:00 am
good morning, and welcome to your "new day." i'm boris sanchez. >> good morning, boris, i'm chris ta paul. this morning, two former trump officials will not face charges for stone walling the january 6th committee. the reaction from committee members and why the doj declined charges just days before some high profile hearings are set to begin. plus, new details on the deadly mass shooting in uvalde, texas, that left 19 children dead. also, we're watching a
5:01 am
tropical storm system closing in on florida. it's bringing heavy rain. there's already some flooding, as you can see, from these pictures we're getting in. there are 10 million people under tropical storm warnings right now. the timing and potential impact coming up. plus the show goes on despite the queen's absence. the platinum jubilee celebrations that are under way today. ♪ we are so grateful you're starting your weekend with us. it's saturday, january 4th. good morning, christi. >> good morning, boris. let's talk about the two former trump administration officials. they will not face charges for contempt of congress in the january 6th investigation. now the department of justice says it won't indictment former white house chief of staff mark meadows and former jeopardy chief of staff dan scavino.
5:02 am
it could hinder the committee's efforts to enforce subpoenas. another trump ally is facing charges. a grand jury indictmenting former adviser peter navarro for contempt of congress over his effort to stone wall the january 6th investigation. the select committee begins its first public hearings this thursday. the panel expected to reveal evidence and witness testimony that we have not yet seen or heard before. for more on the january 6th investigation, let's bring in cnn national security reporter, zach cohen. zach, fill us in on the justice department, their decision to indictment navarro, as opposed to mark meadows or dan scavino. >> yeah, good morning, boris and christi. the january 6th committee making clear it flat out disagrees with the justice department's decision not to pursue criminal charges against scavino and meadows. two people they cast as key witnesses in their investigation
5:03 am
so far and they believe they should have to comply with a congressional subpoena even though their former senior white house officials and do enjoy some protections given their status of their former jobs. now, again the committee was reiterating this last night in a statement where it said, quote, as a select committee has argued in district court, mark meadow's claim he's entitled to absolute immunity is not justified or correct based on the department of justice office of legal council of memoranda. and it concludes, no one is above the law. now, these two cases scavino and meadows are complicated than some of the other criminal referrals we have seen the committee send to doj for witnesses that have resisted complying with their subpoenas and that's because both meadows and scavino did cooperate to some extent or at least engage in negotiations about cooperating, which really makes their case a little bit different in addition to their status as former white house
5:04 am
officials. now, it remains to be seen what exactly the impact of this is on the committee investigation, as you said. we're really approaching the public hearing phase of the committee investigation and it's hard to see if this will have a tangible impact. >> so i want to ask about what is upcoming this week, the committee holding its first public hearing. we do know, as boris had mentioned, that there are some revelations that could be coming in the form of documents and witness testimony. what do we know to expect here? >> well, frankly not a whole lot. the committee has been keeping really close hold on details about the upcoming hearings and really just announced formally the first hearing that's going to take place in primetime this coming thursday. now, what we do know and as you mentioned the committee promised to reveal new material that hasn't been seen before. it's going to feature witness testimony. and it's going to really -- the first hearing will be about laying out a path forward and summarizing what the next hearings we'll see. we'll see what details come out
5:05 am
closer to the hearing but little is known. >> zach cohen, we appreciate the update. thank you. let's speak with a legal expert now, defense attorney and former federal prosecutor wu is here with us this morning. always great to have you. appreciate you sharing part of your weekend with us. i want to ask you about peter navarro's claims that his arrest was unconstitutional. he said he wasn't allowed to make a call from jail, his attorneys weren't contacted. was there any detail in his arrest that would lead you to believe that something improper took place? >> no, absolutely not. i thought he was saying he was defending himself. so i'm not sure who they would have contacted in terms of his attorneys. it's a little unusual that white collar case they wouldn't have allowed him to self surrender. that could indicate, it was hard to reach him and he might flee, given he was representing himself. and two, may have been trying to send a message. i don't think it's a coincidence of the timing that they
5:06 am
announced a declamation of scavino and meadow's cases and also sending a hard message of arresting navarro. may have been to make that point they're not fooling around. when they indictment, they're going to treat people quite seriously. >> navarro says he can't cooperate with the probe because the former president exerted executive privilege. the committee points out he already wrote about a lot of the topics they want to ask him about in a book that was recently published. give us your assessment of the strength of his privilege claim here. >> i think he has a no-privilege claim whatsoever. one, he's written the book. and two, he's taking this hard line position that that privilege is still trump's to assert at this point. and it's really not. it's a privilege that attaches not to a person but to the office. so, i think on the legal analysis side of that, he really -- it's a slam dunk against him. >> and how about the department
5:07 am
of justice telling the january 6th committee last night that it would not indictment mark meadows or dan scavino after congress referred them for contempt charges. what do you make of that announcement? >> yeah. that's an interesting announcement. it certainly shows a.g. garland and the department's very cautious approach towards these kinds of charges. and that can be a good or bad thing. there are distinctions, as zach was reporting, meadows and scavino were higher up. they have cooperated at least in part, meadows turned over documents. it's clear reading the tea leaves that that's what doj is parsing very carefully versus someone who blatantly defying the subpoena the way navarro did. but, overall, i think the committee has a very strong point that you need to either make everyone obey the law and comply or not. i will say to me it does not bode well that the department is
5:08 am
parsing it this finely, even at the very low-level charge of these misdemeanor contempts if they're going to look for these sorts of distinctions and be concerned about them, i think they would find it a very hard decision to make to actually charge higher up members of trump's inner circle. >> important indicator there. now, speaking specifically of meadows, cnn published a trove of text messages that the former chief of staff exchanged with fellow republicans during the insurrection. they were urging him to get president trump, the former president, to stop the violence at the capitol. they believed he had the power, the agency, to stop it. how do you think these messages might factor in to their hearings and to their inquiry? >> well, i think those will be very powerful pieces of evidence for the inquiry. i think it's a great challenge for the committee how and such compressed amount of time do they present the story to the american public. i think they'll have to make
5:09 am
some choices. how much do they focus on visuals, the actual violence and how much can they come across as to the intent and thinking of these inner circle people with trump and text messages like that will shed a lot of light on that thinking. >> we know the committee is still reaching out to witnesses, including at least two people directly tied to the former vice president, mike pence. what does that tell you about what the committee is trying to present through witness testimony? >> well, i think unlike a trial, we have to remember this is a hearing, not a trial, they need to really lay out a presentation of the evidence. like a trial, it still has to be really compelling. they have an enormous amount of evidence to figure out how to marsha that. we understand they will use live witnesses which is very important thing to do. what you don't want to have happen is have this mountain of
5:10 am
paper evidence turn the presentation into a bunch of power point pictures and doumts. it has to be told from a human standpoint. the people perhaps who witnessed the violence, victims of it, the officers and the people who actually were in touch with trump's inner circle and were privy to the president's thoughts that were underlying his actions that day. >> yeah. making it as compelling as possible for as larged ean audience biggest challenge. shan wu, appreciate the free legal advice. >> good to see you, boris. >> that is true, isn't it. we appreciate that from shan. listen, still to come this morning, no clear steps forward in the wake of the massacre in uvalde. parents in the community still don't have answers on the mistakes made during the response to robb elementary school. but a texas state lawmaker pushing for accountability now is with us next. you'll hear from him. also, take a look at what's happening in florida this morning. cars are flooded in the streets.

there is growing frustration this morning among parents and families in uvalde, texas, after that shooting at robb elementary school. a meeting of the uvalde school board ended last night with no clear answers on next steps for the school. the superintendent, though, did announce that students would not be returning to that campus. but parents in the room were still left with a lot of unanswered questions. >> i have a fourth grader that was in the room next door that's terrified. my niece died. i have a 6-year-old that just told me i don't want to go to school. why? to be shot. i have one going into junior high. i have a third grader. we want answers to where the security is going to take place. this was all a joke.
5:17 am
>> we're now also hearing more chilling details about failures among police on that terrible day. cnn's omar jimenez has more. >> reporter: it was supposed to be an end of the year class party before it became a night mare. >> she saw everything from the time he recked to the time she was taken out of there. >> reporter: special education aide imelia was meeting a coworker with food for the party chen she saw a car crash. so her lawyer said she propped the door open, went back inside to get her phone and called 911. but to report the accident. then, she returned to the door. >> and she looks and sees him. and he has a weapon that she can't identify but a big weapon slung over him. he hops over the fence and starts running towards her. >> reporter: so she kicks the door shut. >> she expect it to lock? >> absolutely she thought it was going to be locked. >> she scrambled into a nearby classroom as she begins to hear gunshots. >> he's inside now.
5:18 am
she hides. the 911 call drops. they don't call her back. she doesn't attempt to call back because she doesn't want to make any noise. there's some sort of counter she gets under, but it's exposed. she said that she thought that at that point she was going to die and she made her peace with that. >> reporter: so, she hears every single gunshot. >> every single gunshot. >> reporter: but she was one of the lucky ones who survived. days later, though, she hears law enforcement say she had left the door the shooter used open. and she's second guessing herself? >> right. even made her second guess her own memories. and she had already spoken to the fbi and the rangers and told them what happened. >> reporter: the rangers eventually publicly corrected the record. ♪ as the community grieves, a flurry of unanswered questions linger, including more about texas school's police chief pete arradondo, acting as incident commander during the shooting. >> i have been told this person
5:19 am
did not have -- this person being the incident commander did not have radio communication. and i don't know as to why. >> reporter: a question if the 911 calls were properly relaid to first responders on the scene. one of those 911 calls came from a 10-year-old student who was inside the classroom and according to transcripts reviewed by "the new york times" the student said, there's 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. teaching aide has now filed legal documents to get a deposition from daniel defense the manufacturer of the gun used in the shooting. with her attorneys saying because the shooter got the weapons on his 18th birthday, he
5:20 am
was likely planning the purchases beforehand. >> so his motivations to get that gun was when he was a minor. are there, you know, gun companies that 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 cookie cutter. so what are they doing to change? >> thanks to omar jimenez for that report. let's bring in roland gutierrez. appreciate you joining us. great to be with you. first i wanted to ask how you're feeling and what you've heard from the families that were impacted by this about how they're holding up. >> well, boris, i went to another funeral yesterday, another viewing, and saw another little fourth grader in a coffin, a little angel. and it's just not normal. it's not normal for any of us to see it. it's not normal for those poor,
5:21 am
grieving parents. it's been tremendously hard and their suffering is a million times more profound. >> sir, you told me last week when we spoke that you were assured you would have a detailed report on what happened as far as the police response by now. apparently the district attorney intervened and you didn't get that report. do you have any further clarity on why? >> well, boris, i'm told there might be some presentation to a grand jury, that that's normal protocol when there's officer-involved shootings. at the end of the day, i'm asking for logistical positioning of the officers that are account to believe the state legislature. that's the state troopers. quite frankly i should get to know where all of those officers were situated. i was told at any point in time there were between two troopers and as many of 13 of the 19 officers in that hallway. a lot of finger pointing in this
5:22 am
whole situation. and i think that everybody ered. all of those law enforcement officers ered in their judgment n their ability to follow protocols. i want to know that the ones that work for the state of texas, i want to know which one of them were in that building. >> senator, do you know what is being presented to a grand jury? is that the standard operating procedure? >> well, i mean, it's -- you know, the guy is dead. who are we going to indictment? are we going to indictment a bunch of cops who made mistakes? i doubt that's going to happen. and so, what are we doing here other than just this continued attempt at a cofferup. i don't know if that's what it is. it seems kind of extreme to say that, but it's a point -- at one point or another you have to pull the band aid off of this. the state spent $4 billion over the last year increasing border security, all of these officers are in the area. and yet when it came down to
5:23 am
doing functionality of their work, they didn't follow protocols. the other guys didn't follow protocols. the other law enforcement units didn't follow protocols. it wasn't until the federal government guys said the hell with this, we're going in. >> it sounds like -- >> complete breakdown. >> and it sounds like you are hesitant to call this a coverup, but i'm wondering why it is that you think the school district police chief hasn't come forward and cleared the record and explained these are why these decisions were made in light of so much scrutiny and in light of so much pain. >> i think they all need to. i think that we've heard from dps several different stories. a lot of finger pointing, some clarity at times. but they all need to come to a committee, not a special committee to talk about how many doors or yesterday i found
5:24 am
another state legislature on the other side of the aisle talk about shields that every cop should have a shield in texas. there was enough shields in that room to breach that room. enough shields in the hallway to go breach that room. they should have done their jobs. everybody has to account for this. one little girl died with a single bullet wound through her kidney. she might have lived. everybody has to account for this. you and i didn't sign up to be police officers. that's what we -- we didn't grow up and say i want to be a cop. the guys that grew up and said i want to be a cop, took an oath to do all the things they're supposed to do including this. and didn't happen. >> senator, you say you've been told that a uvalde police officer was receiving 9 11 dispatch calls but the school district police chief, the incident commander didn't have a radio on him. do you know in the communications that other officers were getting were being
5:25 am
shared with the rest of law enforcement agencies that were there on the scene? >> so boris, it's sad that i have to go play private investigator to get answers, right? >> yeah. >> i spoke to the commission on state emergency communications and the protocol in this community for this incident what i was told was to the extent they know is that upd gets the dispatch calls. that's the only person. the 911 calls come into upd and they can dispatch up to 17 first responders, including on the list are isd, sheriff, police, dps, cbp, a myriad of folks. who they dispatched to, we don't know. i understand that they dispatched to some folks on pd. i don't know who. and they couldn't have dispatched to arradondo because he didn't have comps. as to why he didn't have comms, i don't know either. he didn't have his radio, obviously why he didn't have
5:26 am
comms. so here we are in this space looking for answers. i keep trying to find answers anywhere i can. just more questions get a rise out of this whole thing. >> it does say something that you've been the most forthcoming official to give us these answers about law enforcement's conduct when they could very easily just come forward and explain their decision making. before we go, i did want to ask you one more question about what comes next because when we spoke, you mentioned that there were some republicans who were open to considering at the state level some change to gun safety legislation, perhaps raising the age to buy an ar-15-style weapon. have you heard any more from your colleagues at the state capitol? >> no, unfortunately not, boris. but let's be clear, this is an absence of leadership from the very top. the governor should demand a
5:27 am
full accounting, a full accounting to this body. especially when he calls these nonsensical special committee meetings. we have been there done that with this governor after every massacre, round tables, you know, groups with recommendations and nothing is followed. special committee is meaningless unless we have what is called a special session where we can ask questions and take action. in other words, create laws. his inability to be able to ask for an accountability from his own officers, from the police task force that he put down and stands by and spent $4 billion in one year on is pathetic. it's ineffective leadership. and it's an absence of leadership. greg abbott likes to talk about the evil among us. the only evil here is when you have a glaring problem staring you right in the face and you do absolutely nothing to fix it and
5:28 am
you call a special committee and it's just a snow job to the voters and the people of texas. >> notably if you'll recall the governor said he was livid that someone misled him about what happened in uvalde. but as of yet we have not heard that anyone was fired or held accountable for apparently misleading the governor. state senator roland gutierrez, we have to leave the conversation there. we hope you'll come back in the future and continue this conversation. >> thank you, boris. thank you for your reporting. >> of course. stay with cnn.

5:35 am
been going for the better part of a day now. they are having a difficult time keeping up with all of that water. you can see some of the flooding that has led to a number of cars being stalled in downtown miami as well as the brickle financial district. we're told that the city of miami fire rescue has a number of firefighters and at least six trucks going around town, trying to get anyone who might be stranded in their cars, trying to get them out safely. authorities spent the better part of the week warning folks this was really going to be a rain event. and that story has held all across the southern part of florida over in ft. myself and naples. folks there have been seeing rain anywhere between 5 to 7 inches. the good news going into the latter part of the day is we are expecting that most of this bad weather will make its way off the coast of florida come mid afternoon. however, the rain totals, they're expected to go up. right now again, we are seeing
