tv   New Day With John Berman and Brianna Keilar  CNN  June 7, 2022 4:00am-5:00am PDT

4:00 am
school safety measures and investments in mental health. remember, the killers in buffalo and uvalde were 18 and used semiautomatic ar-15-style weapons. this would not be a ban on sales to those under 21 of those style of weapons, which the president has called for, but an adjustment. we'll have details in just a moment. since friday, gun violence killed more than a dozen people and injured dozens more in 13 mass shootings in the united states and this morning, new insight in the last month's school shooting in uvalde from a teacher who stared down the gunman. >> the kids started asking out loud, what is going on, and i said, i don't know what's going on. but let's go ahead and get under the table, get under the table and act like you're asleep. as they were doing that, and i was gathering them under the
4:01 am
table and told them to act like they were going to sleep, is about the time when i turned around and saw him standing there. >> for more i want to bring in rosa flores who is live in uvalde, texas. what a horrifying glimpse into that classroom on that day, rosa. . >> brianna, these details are chilling. let me take you through these details. now the man you saw and heard, he is a teacher at robb elementary school, and he spoke to abc news, and he says that on that ill-fated day, he was in his classroom with his 11 students. they were all watching a movie when gunshots rang out. his students turned to the teacher and asked him what was going on. he said that he told the students to go under the table
4:02 am
and pretend that they were sleeping. that's when he says that he turned around and saw the gunman. he saw the gunman right there and that gunman opened fire. reyes says he was shot multiple times. the gunman hit his arm, his lungs and also his back. this teacher says at that point he couldn't move. he did see that the gunman then turned the weapon on his students. take a listen. >> one of the student from the next door classroom was saying, officer, we're in here. we're in here. but they had already left. he got up from -- behind my desk and walked over there, and he shot over there again. >> now process this with me for just a second.
4:03 am
as i said, mr. reyes says there's 11 students in this classroom when the gunman opens fire. he says, none of those students survived. all of those children died he says. reyes goes on to say for 77 minutes he played dead in this classroom surrounded by his students and we've been covering this from the get-go. there's so many questions about this investigation. we know that officers were there and as you describe, he heard the officers just outside the classroom. he said he heard the students asking for help. of course we know now those officers did not go in there and stop the threat. what stopped the threat in this case was a federal law enforcement officer who eventually went into that classroom, shot and killed the shooter. brianna? >> i don't think i can process that, rosa. i imagine you can't either, as
4:04 am
you try to understand what happened there. rosa flores, thank you. so witnesses who interacted with the far right proud boys on the day of the capitol attack are among those scheduled to testify at the january 6th first public hearing which is thursday night. this is extra significant now that justice department has charged the head of the proud boys enrique tarrio, and four other leaders with seditious conspiracy in the capitol attack. this just happened, escalating the criminal case against members of the proud boys. cnn's senior national correspondent sara sidner joins us now. you have done unique and groundbreaking reporting on the proud boys, including conversations after the january 6th attack with enrique tarrio the leader who wasn't there on that day. >> yeah. >> but what did he tell you as part of these discussions into the subject of planning come up? >> we should talk about -- a little bit about the new indictment because it does bring some fresh detail. as you mentioned enrique tare
4:05 am
yoshgs who was then the chairman of the proud boys national organization wasn't even in washington, d.c., on january 6th, but the government says he was involved in the planning and then responded afterwards as well with glee and joy as to what was happening inside the capitol, those pictures that we all saw of people going in, breaking in and terrifying members of congress. in the latest indictment we noticed some things that were different. in the beginning several members of the proud boys were charged. he was not. but this new indictment talks about encrypted messages that were being sent that were created in an encrypted group created by enrique tarrio, according to the indictment, and shared with dozens of proud boys. a few of the core group listed in this indictment were aware of what the government says were
4:06 am
planning tactics, tactical planning, getting things like armor, things like hotel rooms, planning on where they were going to be, where they were going to meet, so it's really interesting to read through some of the conversation that was going on there between enrique tarrio and some of the members all of that. he was talking with a person talking about a plan to occupy several buildings, including the house and senate, and that they wanted to flood it with as many people as possible, so a lot of details here that explained why these charges have just come up now. i do want to talk to you about what happened in february. february 24th, after the charges against some of his proud boys were already put in place, but he had not been charged, we were able to sit down with him. i have talked to enrique tarrio for many, many years, over the years, and he agreed to sit down with me. i asked him about the people who
4:07 am
had been charged and whether he condemned them. let's listen. >> so was it a mistake to even go into the capitol? >> was it? >> yes. >> do you condemn those who went in, vandalized, threatened police officers, broke windows, do you condemn those people? can you say that right now? >> i can't say that because i think condemn is a very strong word and i think it's a little bit too strong. >> what happened was really violent and very strong, right? >> i'm only responsible -- i guess to speak, i'm only responsible for what the proud boys did, right. you listed a whole thing. i would like to go through that. there's eight members of the proud boys that decided to go in. i think that was -- i think that was a mistake to go in, but they're painting it like we coordinated to go into the capitol previously and that's untrue. >> so let's just parse what he said. he says there, again, this is before he was indicted, he says
4:08 am
there, we didn't plan this. this was not coordinated. and he didn't go all the way to condemn those who went in, but he says, it was wrong. that is a very different story than you are getting from the details that are inside this indictment in these encrypted messages going back and forth between him and people who were there, like his very close buddy joe -- >> talk to me about joe biggs. you spoke to him. >> i did. very different scenario. once the indictments came down we decided to go and try to speak to some of the people who were charged with the most aggressive charges, the proud boys being some and the oath keepers as well. we have an exchange here between me and joe biggs. we went to his home to see if he would -- to speak to us. we tried calling him. he did not respond. we went directly to his home. in this exchange you will hear him deny some of the things. let's listen to that. >> it's right there.
4:09 am
yeah. >> this guy is one of the most well-known, a far right personality known for spouting extremist views, long before january 6th. >> what's going on. this is joe biggs. >> reporter: 37-year-old joseph biggs is an arm y veteran, and also a leader in the far right, violence prone proud boys. his violent rhetoric got him banned on social media sites. on january 6th in washington, d.c., it wasn't just rhetoric. prosecutors say he did aid, abet, counsel, command, induce or procure others to unlawfully enter the u.s. capitol by means of destruction of federal property. this is biggs as he helps lead the proud boys to the capitol steps. once there, one of his proud boys, this guy, broke into the capitol. according to court documents, 20 seconds later, biggs is seen inside the building. biggs is charged for an alleged commanding role in the insurrection. a judge ordered he could go home
4:10 am
on house arrest. we visited him there. >> mr. biggs. i'm vare with cnn. all we want to ask you is whether you were in the capitol on january 6th and what you were doing there. i'm sorry? >> you're calling the police, you said? are you an insurrectionist? >> i wasn't. >> he later goes on to me and threat and curse at me saying he was going to call the police. at that point in time we left. you see video of him there on january 6th, front and center, sort of walking with a whole bunch of guys, some of them proud boys, some of them not, as they are going around the capitol. in this indictment it is those encrypted messages that seem to be the key to why all of these people are charged with seditious conspiracy, which is the most difficult, most largest charge we've seen brought, the most serious charge we've seen
4:11 am
brought against anybody, including those in the oath keepers. they are the only two groups that have -- let me tell you, how did this happen, why is this happening now? it appears that one of the proud boys cooperated and so the government was able to get more information. >> we have a lot more to learn about how they got from the previous charges to these charges as more information, no doubt, that will come out. it's fascinating to hear your conversation with him in that moment in time. thank you so much. we have new cnn reporting this morning on a military investigation into whether a u.s. service member carried out an insider attack against a base in northern syria. four americans were injured in this attack back in april. cnn's barbara starr is live for us at the pentagon. barbara, what can you tell us? >> well, good morning, brianna. we've been tracking this since it happened in april, and now, the u.s. military is confirming it's investigating a military member for the possibility of whether that person deliberately in the middle of the night set
4:12 am
off two rounds of explosives at a u.s. military base in northeastern syria. for the first time now, u.s. military investigators providing cnn with a statement and let me just read it in part, it does say, and i quote, a possible suspect, a u.s. service member, has been identified. at this point these are just allegations. all suspects are presumed to be innocent until and unless convicted in a court of law. so this whole incident began on the night of april 7th at place called greenvilleage in northeastern syria. at that time there were two explosions. the military put out a statement saying they believed they had taken fire from forces outside the base, a rocket or a mortar, and it does happen in that region of northeastern syria. a week later, they corrected themselves in a new statement, and it says, the explosions in
4:13 am
greenvilleage were not the result of indirect fire, but rather the deliberate placement of explosive charges. what we know is, as you said, four military members suffering traumatic brain injury. the explosions, we are told, were not insignificant, larger than a hand grenade, if you will. we know a military member is being investigated. no charges filed. no one is in custody. right now, the really open question, of course, what was the motivation? why would some service member do this to their fellow colleagues? brianna? >> yeah. huge question. barbara starr, live at the pentagon, thank you. joining us now to talk about this is cnn national security analyst peter bergen. i remember -- i think we both remember when this happened, and it seemed like it was an attack from outside and then it seems they learned, no, this came from within potentially their ranks. what do you think about this development? >> i mean, it's less uncommon
4:14 am
than we might think. think about fort hood, texas where major natal husan, an army psychologist dilds people. there was an attack by specialist lopez in 2013 that killed three people. an attack by the u.s. military contractor not far from where we're sitting in the navy yard several years ago which killed 13 people. so kthis happens. two members of the armed services, active duty, reserve, national guard, hundreds of thousands of contractors, they suffer the same issues the normal population suffers, except they're under even more stress. they're in a war zone. but i do think this is quite unusual. when we think of insider threats, usually in afghanistan or iraq, usually that's an iraqi who comes in, carries out some attack or an afghan, we saw a lot of that in afghanistan. >> from a partner security force. >> when general scotty miller,
4:15 am
commanding general in afghanistan, pulled his open weapon in 2018 because there was an insider attack that wounded an american brigadier general. it's unusual in war zone and what's interesting about this also, this person appears to have wanted to get away with it. when these attacks happen often, major ha san, he saw himself as a jihadist hero, he went in and killed 13 people unfortunately at fort hood, was wounded himself in the attack. he didn't try to disguise it. here this seems like a ser repetitious attack. >> does that tell you anything about the motive of whether it may or may not be a political statement? we don't know much about that at this point. >> that's an interesting question. if it was political you would -- you would make a statement yourself. this seems like maybe a private vendetta. we don't know. but it doesn't seem like an attack where we've seen a jihadist carry out an attack and sort of announce the fact that
4:16 am
he is carrying out the attack. we saw that in pensacola, florida, with an insider attack with a saudi military officer in 2019 who killed three u.s. sailors. it doesn't look like it's political in that sense. >> we'll see how this plays out in the disciplinary process and hopefully we'll be learning more details there. thank you as always for your insights. >> thank you. so it is election day and cnn's senior data reporter harry watching a number of races across the country today, including the most populous state, california. really important races there, harry. >> you know, i don't oftentimes go and do district attorney races, but this one has got me going. chess sa budsen is facing a recall, a simple yes or no. a lot of republicans got involved in that. more than that, this is a statement about where the country might be going. he's one of a number of
4:17 am
progressives who have been targeted in recalls. a lot of progressives d.a.s that got elected in the last few years and a lot of folks will be looking to this race to say the liberal city of san francisco can a progressive d.a. survive there. we'll have to find out. >> los angeles mayor's race. >> you know, saying in the golden state, this one is another interesting race, so look, it's a nonpartisan primary. there are no party registration on the ballot. essentially what you have here is a three-way, the top candidates, karen bass, rick caruso, kevin deleon, bass running as a progressive, caruso running hard on a law and order campaign. here's the thing because we have multiple candidate fields you need 50% of the vote plus one, otherwise there is a runoff in november. even if one candidate gets -- leads with 40%, if they don't get to 50 plus one, the election will go on. >> crime like in san francisco,
4:18 am
is a major issue in this election. >> yes. that's exactly right. rick caruso came out of nowhere basically running on this law and order campaign. this is something we saw in new york last year as well. with eric adams. we saw byron brown in buffalo, able to survive an attempt to knock him off. this is one of those things. crime is something even if it's not due to a national issue, it is a huge urban issue. >> there is a peculiar thing on the ballot in south dakota. >> i will admit i've done a lot of political segments over the last four plus years and i don't think we've gone to south dakota frequently, not that i don't love the state of south dakota, but look, amendment c would make some ballot measures get 60% of the vote to pass instead of 50% plus one. you might be saying why would they do that? republicans want to get it on the ballot ahead of a medicaid expansion ballot measure in november would need 60% instead of 50% plus one. a lot of republicans don't want
4:19 am
that to pass. >> this would make this harder to pass. while we're up in south dakota, let's go next door. >> to the great state of montana. we've gone to montana a few times. the montana first congressional district, gop primary, why are we going there in because of this guy, ryan zinke. donald trump backs the former interior secretary. remember zinke was a member of the trump administration and a fun nugget after redistricting montana went from one to two congressional districts. >> that's a change. this is new because they have a new district. a shiny new district. >> where are we in the primary calendar at this point? >> you know, the more i go, it just seems like life is passing me by more quickly. after today, 40% of states will have held primaries. feels like we haven't been in the primary season that long and 40% will have voted and we're five months until the general election in november. we will have a lot of ton doing it. >> the countdown is on. >> the heat is on.
4:20 am
>> thank you very much. so critical development in pennsylvania's high stakes senate race. the health of democrat john fetterman under scrutiny. a former obama white house adviser reacts to dysfunction inside the biden white house as the president grows more frustrated over his poll numbers. >> a drowning man begging to be saved. what body cam video appears to show officers doing while it happened. find your rewards so you can reconnect, disisconnect, hold on tight and let go! stay two nights anand get a free night. book now at motrin works fast to stop pain where it starts. like those nagging headaches.

4:25 am
cnn's natasha chen has more on this developing story. tell us about this and how the man ended up in the water in the first place. >> brianna, three officers are now on nondisciplinary paid leave pending this investigation. they responded to a call just after 5:00 a.m. on saturday, may 28th. initially about an alleged fight between the 34-year-old man sean bickings and his companion. the officers get there and the two people say there's no physical violence at all. the city says under standard procedure the officers ran their two names for a background check. as they're running their names, they're making small talk with them. you can see that in the video. they're talking to bickings as they're by this railing, by this reservoir and a pedestrian bridge. the video we're able to show you from the body camera footage shows bickings actually climbed that railing and got in the water.
4:26 am
>> i'm sorry. [ inaudible ]. >> what are you doing, my friend? huh? >> what are you doing? >> i'm going for a swim. i'm free to go, right? >> you can't swim in the lake, man. >> i'm free to go. >> you're not allowed to swim in the lake. [ inaudible ]. >> you can see him swimming away there and you can hear the officers saying he's not allowed to swim in there, but he's also not under arrest. they can't detain him. the city did not show the rest of this footage, saying that the actual drowning itself is sensitive in nature but did give us a transcript of what happened next. let's put that on the screen. the officer at one point says to
4:27 am
bickings as he's in distress, what's your plan now? bickings says i'm going to drown, the officer says no, you're not. one of the officers tells him to get to a nearby pylon to hang on. bickings continues to say i'm drowning, i can't, and that officer responds i'm not jumping in after you. at that point fire and rescue -- the fire department, the water and rescue team is called. i asked the city what happened after that point how it took for folks to get there and help out, because it took several hours to finally find bickings. the tempe officers association gave us a statement which i will read here saying that these officers received in training in water rescues, nor do they have equipment to help people and attempting such a high risk rescue could result in the death of the person in the water and the officer who could be pulled down by a struggling adult. the city of tempe is reviewing its policies around water incidents like this, what type
4:28 am
of equipment the officers need and what type of equipment is needed around bodies of water and nearby scottsdale police is helping with an internal review of the training and policies in place at the point that this happened. meanwhile, the city of tempe is doing its death investigation after which the state, arizona department of public safety, will review that. brianna? >> natasha chen, live for us, thank you so much. >> thanks. frustration within the west wing as the white house struggles to get its message out. we're joined by former president obama's communication director on what he thinks need to change. could four-day workweeks be the thing of the future? the biggest trial run under way. >> woman: i have a few more minutes. let's go! >> tech vo: that's service that fits your schedulule. go to >> singers: ♪ safelite rerepai, safelite replace. ♪

democratic senate candidate john fetterman focusing on his recovery and staying off the campaign trail until at least next month according to his wife after suffering a stroke revealing a heart condition and admitting he almost died. questions are growing about why the campaign was not more transparent about his health. cnn's jeff zeleny is live for us in pittsburgh with more. jeff? >> good morning, brianna. the pennsylvania senate race is one of the biggest contests of this midterm election year where democrats see their best opportunity to pick up a seat. that seat is from retiring republican senator pat toomey. the democratic candidate, just five months from tomorrow, election day, john fetterman is still sidelined and those health questions loom large over the race. >> thanks for coming out, everybody. >> reporter: it's been 25 days since john fetterman has stepped on to the campaign trail in pennsylvania. his wife now tells cnn, he may not reappear until next month. >> i think he deserves a month
4:34 am
break to come back as strong as ever. this is going to be a tough race and a really important race and i want him to be fully ready for it. >> so maybe in july? >> maybe. i think so. that's my hope. >> reporter: that hope shared by democrats watching her husband's recovery from a stroke and previously undisclosed heart condition in increasing alarm in one of the top senate races, with questions and concerns mounting, fetterman revealed the severity of his illness last friday, acknowledging in a statement, i almost died. we sat down with his wife in their hometown of braddock outside of pittsburgh. she defended their commitment to being transparent, pushing back on suggestions they downplayed his condition. >> it's a hiccup. families go through health crises. our family is not unique in what we've gone through. only we've had to go through it very publicly. >> reporter: that spotlight is likely to only intensify, considering the heart patient is now running against a celebrity heart surgeon.
4:35 am
with dr. mehmet oz declaring victory. >> the primary is over. now left wing radicals are rolling into pennsylvania. >> reporter: republicans are wasting no time trying to brand fetterman as extreme and he's pushing back by reminding pennsylvanians that oz moved here from new jersey to run for senate. yet, questions about fetterman's health hang heavy over the race. in whispers among party officials and among some voters who privately raise their concerns. alyssa catalano, a friend of fetterman's who owns a business down the street from his home, says the family has tried to balance medical and political obligations. >> being personally close to the family, my priority at that time was like, don't just focus on getting better, don't worry about everyone, but i understand that he has a responsibility right now, but i think what i would say to those people is put yourself in their shoes. >> reporter: pennsylvania voters offered a mixed view. >> i think that his wife will keep him on track, so i think that if his doctors feel
4:36 am
confident he can be released and campaign i'm not concerned. >> i think it creates a dangerous situation, as much for him as anything. >> reporter: it wasn't until friday that fetterman revealed he left a series of heart issues untreated for years. in a statement he confessed, i should have taken my health more seriously. the stroke i suffered on may 13th didn't come out of nowhere. >> i hate that he had to learn it the hard way, but i'm grate that will he's alive and will make a full recovery and now he is the one who listens the most, not only to me, but to the doctors. i hope that other folks can learn from him and not have to experience it like he had to. >> reporter: this morning, fetterman is up with new campaign ads introducing himself to the general election electorate in pennsylvania, but he is not planning to campaign potentially until july. there have been so many concerns from democrats here in the commonwealth as well as in washington if they would have to
4:37 am
device strategies to perhaps replace him on the ballot. the deadline is august, but in my conversation yesterday with gisele fetterman, she said that will not be necessary. he will be campaigning and more importantly, she said, his doctors believe he can too. brianna. >> so interesting to hear from him. jeff zeleny, thank you. new reporting on messaginging struggles within the white house. isaac reports, quote, being familiar never makes the feeling less dreadful. white house aides e-mailing each other during one of president joe biden's stops on the road tracking who is covering what he's saying and which tv channels are taking the speech live and realizing a number of times that the answer was none. your thinking, one person said familiar, why are we doing this? joining us is dan pfeiffer, former senior adviser to president obama and white house communications director and is the author of the brand new book out today "battling the big lie how fox, facebook and the maga media are destroying america."
4:38 am
it's great to have you. so much in this book that's exactly relevant for stuff that's happening in the news today. that report from isaac was revealing there are people within the white house who feel like they're not getting their message out. how true? >> definitely true. and i put myself in the top percentile of americans sympathetic to the challenges they have. when i worked in the white house, it was hard to get our message out because the media environment was so chaotic and hyperbolic and there was this emerging right wing media machine that was starting to drown out our message. that problem is exponentially worse now. the white house, even if you put aside all of the crisis happening outside of their control dominating the news, the presidential bully pulpit is small and this is a huge challenge to democrats. we are losing the messaging wars as i wrote in the book, republicans have spent decades building this apparatus of the cable news, the digital sites, youtube personalities, facebook
4:39 am
messaging, that is pushing right wing disinformation and propaganda at the expense of normal political conversation in this country. >> is it just that, though? or are there choices this white house is making that's making it harder to get their message out? >> we can say everyone can always do a better job. what are you going to say and how do you get people to pay attention. biden has nailed the first part. his agenda is popular, his messaging is good. not enough are hearing it. you have seen in the last few weeks a shift in what the white house is doing. some of it is in the cnn report. the president is getting out more, he's been doing more interviews and going to be on yim my kimmel tomorrow night. he gave a prime time speech. they're recognizing democrats have to work extra hard to be omni present in the political conversation because we don't have an yap rat pus that's going to do that for us. >> the op-eds, you mentioned this in your book, something that president biden has tried to do, written two op-eds, one
4:40 am
on inflation and the other on gun safety. is that sort of the new approach? that feels awfully old school. >> if you think of the op-eds as something that is designed only for the readers of the dead tree editions of the newspaper that have fallen that is very old and an inefficient way to communicate. a way to kick-start a political conversation in the digital space where everyone is reacting to that op-ed, doesn't really matter where it is, but you are putting content out there, you are pushing your message in every available means, right, doing late night with jimmy kimmel, op-eds, traveling, doing local television, progressive media, all of those things have to be part of the mix. we're seeing more from this white house now. >> i want to come back to this white house in a second, but i want to focus on another thing we're learning which gets to what your book is about, which is that the first night of the january 6th select committee hearings will be in prime time thursday night, all the major networks are covering them, except for fox news will not broadcast these hearings.
4:41 am
what does that tell you? >> it tells me that idea that fox is some sort of quasi right leaning journalistic organization during the day and right wing opinion at night, is completely not true. right. this is the entire operation at fox, and it has been amplified by a bunch of sort of fox like online versions of fox, is the goal is to create a hermetically sealed information bubble to dictate, to give people a specific alternative version of reality, alternative facts as kellyanne conway would say, for the purposes of motivating republican voters and winning elections. that is what it is. >> that's one thing that's interesting to look at, a segment of the country for which those hearings, i suppose you're saying, will not exist. >> they will not exist. it's the same thing on the economy, right. when -- within the right wing media ecosystem, when donald trump was president, the economy
4:42 am
was great. jobs numbers were the single most important thing. right. the greatest economy in history according to fox. once, you know -- obviously the economy is very complicated right now, but the idea that we are having historic job growth, one of the greatest in history, is not a piece of information being communicated to a large swath of the population because right wing media outlets and the billions that fund it do not want people to know that. >> i'm going to ask you to summarize in 30 seconds what the last third of your book is about. it's a challenge but what do you do about it? >> it's not the democrats and this white house don't understand. >> they absolutely understand. >> what's happened and what environment they are now in. so how do you beat that? >> so there are no simple solutions. we are decades behind the right wing here. but there are three things we have to do. one, as a party and a progressive movement we have to invest in progressive media not at the expense of mainstream media, it's an and both strategy. we have to invest in ways we can communicate with people and tell our story on our terms.
4:43 am
second, i think we have to radically rethink communications in this. political communications is not public relations. it's information warfare in the digital age. we have to be on a war footing and build up a different operation. last thing is, and i think this is the only way that progressives are going to beat republicans at this is, we have millions and millions of democrats around this country who are taking time out of their day to text and phone calls and call strangers on the phone. we have a great volunteer base. we need to turn them into a messaging army and give them content and tools to spread our message. think of each one of them as an adjunct to the white house press secretary carrying our message. that requires a lot of work. we have agencies here and there are things we can do. we have to understand the problem, to explain where this came from and how it works and what we can do about it. >> the book is "battling the big lie." it is out today and deals with things in the news today. great to see you. the state of texas ordering

in addition to the crisis surrounding infant formula, supply chain shortages are ensnaring other aspects of health care, including diagnostics. the closure of ge's health care -- a ge health care shanghai plant because of covid lockdowns in early april has led to a shortage of contrast dye, the medium that doctors and hospitals use in diagnostic scans like ct scans, and that has led to a delay in diagnoses
4:49 am
and treatments. our chief medical correspondent dr. sanjay gupta has been investigating this issue and joins us now to tell us more. sanjay, what does this dye do and how can this lead to missed or delayed diagnoses? >> yeah. just like you said, this is called iv contrast. it's intravenous, a contrast that contains iodine, which is going to show up well if you image this on scans, you inject this into the bloodstream and it's basically to try to find abnormalities that you might otherwise miss. someone is having a stroke, for example, try to find exactly where the blood clot is that's causing that stroke, this is something that can be use. for that. let me show you my world of brain imaging, why says to useful. if you take a look at a brain image such as this one, you may not be able to tell just exactly what's going on there. this doesn't have any contrast that's been injected. if you inject the contrast take
4:50 am
a look especially in the upper right corner of the scan and you see that big bright white spot there, brianna. that's a tumor. that's a brain tumor. it's not very clear at all on the noncontrast scan. you inject the contrast it becomes clear. someone who is getting their liver imaged, for example, concerned about cancer. on the upper left corner, the liver looks pretty normal. you inject the dye again, and those two spots there that are with the yellow arrows, those are indications of areas where now you have evidence of cancer in the liver. may have missed that if you didn't have the dye. that's why this is so important. and as you point out, brianna, this is as a result of that zero covid policy in shanghai. early april to just this past week, two weeks this ge healthcare plant was essentially not able to manufacture this dye, that plant, you know, this
4:51 am
company serves probably half the hospitals in this country in terms of providing that dye. so that's been the issue. you haven't been able to get enough of that dye over these two months and we're still going to be paying a price for that for some time to come. they're ramping up production again, but it takes a while to catch up. >> sanjay, thank you so much. incredibly alarming. these are tests obviously that need to be done here. so the u.s. sent tens of billions of dollar of aid to ukraine. what is the caost to rebuild. we have a reality check next. leader of the proud boys charged with seditious conspiracy in the january 6th insurrection. the significance ahead. the lows of bipolar depression can leave you u down and in the dark. but what if you could bebegin

the russian invasion of ukraine has had a devastating impact on ukraine's economy. one that could last generations. so, what will it cost to rebuild? john avlon with a reality check. >> 75 years ago this week, secretary of state george marshall gave a graduation address that changed the world. america and its allies had won the second world war, veterans were attending college on the gi bill and many citizens felt entitled to a peace dividend. on june 5th, the former general came to tell college graduates in cambridge that the war wasn't really over. threatened by soviet aggression, europe must have substantial additional help or face economic social and political deterioration. the united states should do whatever it is able to do to assist in the return of normal economic help in the world without which there can be no political stability and no assured peace. marshall was proposing something
4:57 am
unprecedented, that america help rebuild its enemies as well as its allies, this was the opposite of reparations. it was an investment in peace. the words are cheap, right? u.s. president harry truman understood the american people would be need to be sold the idea, and republicans had control of congress and so the effort was bipartisan from the start. truman and marshall cultivated the chairman of the senate foreign relations committee, he balked at spending ten cents out of every dollar of the federal budget back in europe. but vandenberg who was isolationist until the attack on pearl harbor understood that partisan politics had to end at the water's edge so he set about winning over his fellow republicans. a surge in soviet aggression created a renewed sense of urgency. the marshall plan was the olive branch that complemented to
4:58 am
support free people. it was passed with 69 votes in the senate, within months there were ships delivering food and medicine, funding to rye build buildings, dams and bridges. europe was stabilized, spurred growth while taming inflation, political moderates rose rather than extreme parties. in the end, security was strengthened by the creation of nato, trade agreements created the foundation of the european union. you might ask why the marshall plan should matter to you today. it turned enemies into allies and dictatorships into liberal democracies, it reminds us that america's greatness is directly connected to our goodness. and because it helped establish 75 years of relative peace and prosperity in western europe. in recent years we learned the dangers of taking our democracy for granted, and in recent months we relearned the wisdom of those organizations, established by america and its
4:59 am
allies to win the peace after the second world war. putin's invasion of ukraine should have shattered any fashionable illusions about isolationism or the end of history. it should remind us that geopolitical bullies only respect strength. that's why collective security agreements work, ask nations like finland and sweden why they want to join nato now. there are already calls for a new marshall plan. to rebuild what's been destroyed in ukraine. and signs of renewed solidarity among allies with the determination that russia remain isolated at least while putin is in power. but perhaps the best way to honor the marshall plan is to recognize that peace must be waged unceasingly. we cannot wisely retreat from the world, because what marshall and truman and vandenberg understood is still true, if you don't win the peace, you don't really win the war. and that's your reality check. >> and everyone should check out john avlon's book, which deals with abraham lincoln, but also connects it to the marshall

plan, and thereby connects us to where we are today. thank you. "new day" continues right now. good morning to our viewers here in the united states and all around the world. it is tuesday, june 7th. i'm john berman with brianna keilar. negotiations on gun safety late into the night in the senate and we have new reporting on the contours of possible agreement. i can show you a list of some of the things being discussed right now. incentivizing states to pass red flag laws, and then there is this, a possible waiting period for 18 to 21-year-olds to buy semi-automatic weapons like the ones used by teenage shooters in uvalde, buffalo and parkland. this is a new proposal, it would not be a ban o
