tv   CNN Tonight  CNN  June 10, 2022 7:00pm-8:00pm PDT

7:00 pm
heard of, in all the -- the studying i've done, the reading i have done about cases being a genealogy nut for years. i have never heard of anything like this. and that's what was so shocking about it because the implications were that the child being missing had to have had something to do with the murder. and to realize, 40 years later, oh my gosh, this child's been possibly, you know, in the accompany of somebody that killed her parents. so, it's a very unusual case, very unique. >> yeah. allison peacock, thank you for sharing. we appreciate it. >> uh-huh. thank you. and now, welcome to a bonus hour of cnn tonight. i am laura coates still and don lemon is off tonight. now, on the heels of the first comprehensive look at the january-6th committee's findings,s justice department just released brand new video from the riot at the capitol. now, i warn you this is graphic video and it does include strong
7:01 pm
language. >> get him! get him! get these motherfuckers! we're coming through! we're coming through! ah! ah! >> for nearly a year, the january-6th committee has been trying to piece together how this happened, different vantage points, who was involved, from the bottom to the top? and last night, they up veiled some new video of its own and concerning findings. and it's very first public hearing. >> president trump was yelling and, quote, really angry at advisers who told him he needed to be doing something more. and aware of the riot rioters' chance to hang mike pence, the president responded with this sentiment. quote, maybe our supporters have the right idea. mike pence, quote, deserves it.
7:02 pm
>> wow. wow. what the american people deserve are answers and information and the truth. and of course, the people who fought to defend our capitol that day -- well, they deserve it, as well. and among them, former d.c. metropolitan police officer, mike fanone, who is now a cnn law enforcement analyst. i want to get his take on the hearing that happened just last night. michael fanone, i am glad that you are here, and you are precisely who we wanted to hear from because you were there. we remember the battle. we remember what was described even last night, to refresh our memory, if we had forgotten, about the mortal hand-to-hand combat. and i want to know what was your take? how did you think the hearing on the first day went? do you think people have more insight into what really happened? >> i mean, i think it is a good foundation. um, a good start. uh, i mean, i -- i always revert
7:03 pm
back to my time in law enforcement. you were a prosecutor. you know this was a great opening statement. um, what i am looking for in the future is for the select committee to build on that. i mean, they have done a good job so far, at least in my opinion, of lining up the activities of january 6th and -- and the days leading up to it. and specific statements that were made not just by trump but also by, um, those in his inner circle. and what was, you know, partially his thought process but -- but also those around him pertaining to the results of the 2020 election. >> you know, i want to know the idea of the questions that you have, in particular. we know the law enforcement collectively outmanned, overrun. we know -- we saw this. i mean, you know it intimately. what do you want answered?
7:04 pm
your vantage point was what none of us really had -- approximating right there. you saw this unfolding. what are the questions you are looking to, even outside of what the commander in chief and the president of the united states was doing? do you have questions about how this could have happened, in the first place, in terms of intelligence failures or security protocols? what are your questions? >> yeah, i mean, s it was never forte. i spent most my time in narcotics but i don't need to be an expert in civil disturbance to tell you this was a catastrophic failure of planning and preparation. um, and, you know, that is not to criticize the individual officers that responded. i mean, it was -- it was in spite of their leadership, that they were able to able to hold the lip the line at the capitol. you know, i am not a cop anymore but i certainly shed my fair share of blood at the capitol
7:05 pm
that day. and i think that, um, u.s. capitol police' leadership owes to their officers and to the agencies that responded that day to assist, um, to be transparent in their failures. and also, to show some accountability. i mean, quite frankly, there are people in leadership positions within that agency that have absolutely no business leading men and women in -- in situation like that. they should be removed. >> you know, and i -- i'm -- i'm hopeful that we are going to have the clarity that you are talking about and the transparency. and light as that antiseptic but i also wonder and you and i know washington, d.c. very well. i mean, there is a phrase about things happening inside the beltway and what concerns those inside the beltway versus those who are outside.
7:06 pm
do you have concerns that the audience who is watching this sort of -- the -- the jury of the american electorate -- do you think it is getting to where it needs to be? do you think that this is translating in a way that you're not just preaching -- by you, i mean, the committee -- not just preaching to the choir but try to have a broader tent. you think it is going to get through? >> um, i mean, in all honesty, no, i do not. i think that, um, you know, at this point, our country is too polarized in its politics. people are, for the most part, incredibly entrenched in their side of the political aisle. and there is very few people left in the middle who are open to, um, you know, negotiation. but i -- i don't think that the american people necessarily is the only audience that the select committee is or should be
7:07 pm
addressing. i think ultimately, i said last night, that the department of justice is the -- the last line of defense when it comes to our democracy. >> well, we will see if they indeed will hold that line, in particular. michael fanone, thank you so much. >> yes, ma'am. thank you for having me. i want to bring in ron brownstein and van jones to talk about how these hearings played out and get some reaction from them, as well. gentlemen, you heard michael fanone just now. we have been watching him. we saw what happened on that day. there are others -- many others -- who we watched in horror as to how they valiantly tried to fend off this crowd of people. when you hear him wondering about whether it is gaei going o translate and definitively saying he doesn't think it will overcome the entrenchment. i wonder from your perspective, ron -- i will go to you first -- do you think he is right?
7:08 pm
>> well first of all, i think that the -- the committee, to a degree that i don't think has been fully appreciated today, is reframing the whole question, laura. i mean, what we have been debating mostly for the 18 months is what role did donald trump's words on that day and his tweets play in summoning the mob and directing them toward the capitol and the attack on the capitol itself has been the -- the central issue. the committee reframed the question that americans have to be asking because they frame the atang on the capitol as just one component of a larger attack on the democracy. i mean, they have made very clear that, in their slew, the atechnical on the capitol, that was the final stage of a seven-stage effort to overturn the election and to subvert american' dmemocracy. and i was struck, as well, by the repeated language from -- particularly, from representative cheney, that what trump did was not only wrong, not only in the broad sense of
7:09 pm
violation of his oath of office, but that it was illegal. and so, i think they were, both, paving a path and pointing a finger at the attorney general in terms of making very clear that this was a multifaceted plot to try to subvert the election result and that there is legal culpability there. and so, look, you know, there aren't that many people that can be moved in the country but the parties are really closely divided so it really doesn't take that many to -- to matter. um, and -- and that's like kind of one lane. the other line is the legal lane and i think they laid out a much broader and even more consequential indictment, broadly speaking, against the president -- former president, than we heard so far. >> van, i want you to weigh in here. the second impeachment hearing as you all know was really about whether the words were incendiary. whether they were inciting the insurrection. now, it is more about this seven-part plan they have spoken about. the idea that there was a statement made that, look, on the morning of january 6th,
7:10 pm
president donald trump intended to remain the president of the united states. and we are seeing the way they have framed the discussion. when you were listening, though, van, and, you know, youings, very early on, were one of the people to predict donald trump's victory in -- in -- when he first ran because you were having your pulse, you know, with them on the pulse of what people were thinking even outside of the box. what do you make of their presentation and its ability to sway? >> if anyone listened to liz cheney, in particular, she did an extraordinary job. uh, of laying out just how diabolical, how the -- the -- the methodology. we were facing democracy hanging by a thread, and that thread is still unraveling. um, and so, the problem is the people who most need to hear from her won't listen. that's the big tragedy that you have a cheney, liz cheney,
7:11 pm
daughter of dick cheney. this family is a pillar of american conservatism and, yet, the conservative movement will not listen to them as she is begging for american democracy to survive and begging for people to look in the eyes of a coup attempt that played out -- >> by the way, van, looking into the eyes of her own party. i want you to respond because i want you to hear this reminding people about what congresswoman liz cheney spoke about. she is obviously in a very vulnerable position now in wyoming. it is no guarantee she will retain her seat. in fact, looks like a very uphill battle but here is what she had about the legacy of those who essentially won't listen. >> in our country, we don't swear on oath to an individual or a political party. we take our oath to defend the united states' constitution, and that oath must mean something. tonight, i say this to my republican colleagues who are defending the indefensible. there will come a day when donald trump is gone, but your
7:12 pm
dishonor will remain. >> van, is that the snoemt moment? >> sorry? yeah, i mean, that's it. that's -- that he is powerful stuff. i mean, i -- if you study the american conservative movement as i do and as i have. if you had told anybody, even two years ago, three years ago, that the -- that the cheneys would be standing against the entire conservative movement, saying that an obvious coup attempt is a coup attempt, and wouldn't be listened to, it would be hard to imagine. and the dir likz of duty on the part of this president. can you imagine if the 10,000 muslims that attacked our capitol in the middle of a joint session of congress -- joint session of congress and the president of the united states -- what -- he would have instantly had a response. if it had been black lives matter. if it had been 10,000 smurfs. it had been 10,000 anything. this is not somebody -- donald trump -- who is afraid to use force. he wanted black lives matter
7:13 pm
activists shot down in the streets. and so, the idea that somehow this rough, tough president that likes to knock heads together and punch people, somehow for two, three, four, five hours has nothing to say about the american capitol being attacked? and yet, he is not a part of the coup and the idea that he is going to continue to be an unindicted co-conspirator in the face of this i think is also shocking. but liz cheney, no matter what happens to her electorally, has secured a place in history as a true profile-in-dourj. >> ron, i mean, the invoking idea of the inindicted co-conspirator is reminiscent what happened with michael cohen and the idea will this person be named? there was a lot made about the proud boys last night and the discussion surrounding their planning, their strategizing, the dock yum tarn testified as well. this was all in primetime. the future herings may not all be in prime-time. what do you make of the ability to not only retain the attention but to have it at a -- for a
7:14 pm
sustained pace and sustained period of time for the american public? >> well, look, there is a very different world than watergate when there were fewer options for people and everyone was pretty much drinking from the same fountain in terms of the information they were getting. so obvious i will, it is going to be more diffuse. i am less pessimistic than some that there is no audience that is willing to hear this. i mean, it is true that, you know, roughly 40 or 45% of republican voters say that they essentially only listen to conservative media but there is a piece, there is a quarter of the republican electorate that does -- does not echo the big lie that says even little more than that that say they to use mainstream media sources and i think the quality and the quantity of the evidence that is being put forward is going to, you know, be a challenge for them. you know, big movement is not possible anymore in -- in american public opinion. but small movement can have big impact and i don't think this is a big, you know, factor in the 2022 election midterms are a
7:15 pm
snapshot on the condition of the country and inflation dominates everything. but the question of whether americans want to trust donald trump with executive power and the nuclear codes and control of federal law enforcement after this all this, i think it is too early to say this -- this will have no effect. i will say bun last point about liz cheney. you know, she said that the verdict of history will be on republicans. i think that is pointing a little too far into the future, laura. because not only are so many republicans looking away from what happened. they are mobbinving the opposit direction with laws in the states making it harder to vote, with laws in the states to making it easier for partisan meddling in tabulation of the results and advocates of the big lie running for election positions in virtually every swing state that will decide 2024. so i mean, this is happening here and now and the party really has to decide how far it is willing to go in trying to undermine democracy. and second, what will the public
7:16 pm
do if they don't? >> well, that is the question or statement was it is a republic if you can keep it. they try to give you last word here, van, they really tried to hone in the notion that this was a continuing threat. it wasn't just a retrospective look into history. it was about trying to ensure that this was not a dry run. did they make that case to at least frame the conversation for the american public to know this continues? >> look. for the people who are watching, i think that -- that's what should come away for you. that's why your blood runs cold. it's not just the -- the -- the -- the seeing the violence, it's recognizing this was a massive plot. and none of the people who were behind that plot are in jail. in fact, they are still out there plotting right now and that that is very frightening. >> ron brown stone, van jones. thank you pour joining me. i will note the doj prosecutor has at least charged more than 800 people but we will see where all that meets out. now, to the investigation in uvalde. lot of excuses from law enforcement as to why it took so long to confront the active

7:21 pm
nearly three weeks since 19 children and two teachers were killed in a text text elementary school, the uvalde police chief is finally giving his first detailed account on why it took 77 minutes for officers to confront the gunman. according to texas tribune, chief pete arradondo told reporters there was no way to breach the classroom's steel-enforced doors. they had to wait for keys. now, in the meantime, he did what he could. he told officers to break windows of other classrooms to evacuate teachers, and kids as he called for tactical gear, a sniper, and keys to get inside. and when those keys arrived, he tried dozens of them but none of them worked. and despite all of this, arradondo maintains that he never considered himself the scene's incident commander.
7:22 pm
saying, quote, i didn't issue any orders. i called for assistance and asked for an extraction tool to open the door. now, his belief was that someone else had taken control of the larger response, and he was just a frontline responder. i g get perspective now from the first responding officers to the sandy hook school shooting. chief, i'm -- i'm glad you are here. i do want to play for you, a quick clip of a conversation that i had with a reporter from the tribune, who was talking about that idea of being an incident commander or -- or not truly being. listen in. >> when the gunman was able to get inside the classroom, uh, that is when arradondo says sort of the situation gets flipped and it becomes very difficult for law enforcement to get inside, break down the door as people have suggested, um, and -- and now, the shooter is inside, with potential victims
7:23 pm
and that is what is when a caused the delay. >> chief, what do you make of that? i mean, the idea of him not only saying he didn't think he was an incident commander. but just the explanation for why there was that delay. what is your reaction? >> laura, i did read the chief's interview. and i have to say i am even more confused now that i have read it. um, the fact that he said he intentionally left his communication gear behind, his radio, just doesn't make any sense as an excuse. also, the fact he went in there without a bulletproof vest also tells me that this is somebody totally unprepared to handle any situation, which is strange being that his only job is to be a school officer. and he has a six-man department and he only has a certain number of schools he has to patrol. so the fact that he didn't have that equipment and did not have a key, a master key, to get into every single room, um, just, you know, just is unbelievable.
7:24 pm
>> remind the public, though, he is now a city councilman. so there is additional responsibility in addition to what he once was but the idea of barricaded doors -- i know you are going in that direction right now. because he with heard, initially -- you and i had this conversation about this being a barricade situation or an active shooter. and you and i saw this timeline, in fact, the timeline that's been now partially confirmed that givens us some of what happened on that occasion. there is still this huge delay and this question of if there were still shots being fired, how could it be thought of as a barricade? talk to me about that. >> it -- it definitely was not a barricaded subject. once that -- there were shots fired and we knew that this person was in a -- in a school building and, especially inside of a school classroom, right then, tells you it's -- it's a active shooter and that that active shooter has to be taken down. i don't know why, you know, they
7:25 pm
talk about the door. the door was probably the exact same door that was there when the school was built. it's probably a sturdy door due to fire codes. and of course, it is a commercial building so it has to have a steel casing around it. so it's gonna be a sturdier door than you would find in most homes. however, i don't know why he said it wasn't breachable. did he try? did they throw a couple officers against it to see what would happen? the other interesting point is that in one of the interviews that one of the survivors gave, she talked about how the shooter shot through the window in the door. so, we do know now there were actually windows in those doors that could be shot through. and so, why they didn't try any number of -- of -- of, you know, different types of assaults and plans to try to shoot that shooter, um, is unbelievable, especially since there were more officers there than just his own department. i am very surprised that -- >> some of those officers, chief, excuse me, we heard from some of those officers in fact we got some body-cam video and
7:26 pm
listen in to what conversation were actually happening in the hallway. it really is foreboding, really. do we have that clip of them talking about what the -- what they were hearing? if we don't have it, i will just describe it and it is the notion of at one point, them saying hey, if there are kids in there, we have got to go in. another saying look, we have to wait and see who gives us the direction. i am paraphrasing the aspect of it. the idea of direction. well, if there was no incident commander, if there was no sort of chef in the ditkitchen so to speak, i mean, what do you do? >> well, there is a lot of confusion about who the incident commander is. the incident commander is the person who takes charge outside of the hot zone. their complete job is logistics. they run that whole show. from media to finances to incoming dements and where they should stage. the person that is actual in there dealing and gonna breech
7:27 pm
the door, that person is just part of your initial-strike force. still, that officer, that chief, if he was the highest-ranking person in that hallway, then yes, he was in charge, there is no doubt about it. i am just surprised that, you know, officers from the state police or the sheriff's departments that had rank didn't basically just step over him and take on the responsibility of going in the door. why they listened to him is beyond my comprehension. >> well, if you are confused, imagine what the laymen of all of us think about this very notion as well and the families who are grieving and want the answers so desperately. chief. >> thank you. >> nature you very much, laura. >> now, to some other victims who also deserve answers. u.s. gymnasts who have been failed on so many fronts. sexually abused by the longtime doctor for the u.s. women' gymnastic team. dozens of them are now seek damages from the fbi, including star olympians like simone biles

7:34 pm
alex. i want to just clarify something because the headlines for some might read there is a lawsuit. this actually isn't a lawsuit. the way it works under the federal tort claims act, you have to first give notice about the opportunity or intention to sue. and then, they have to have about a six-month period before you have to actually either settle the case or they can decline to engage in that. so right now, you are at a state where you have given notice. um, how do you see this playing out, though? >> we filed the tort claims. they have six months to respond to those, to evaluate them. and we don't know what they are going to do. i think that's what 's been shon through this process is we don't know what the doj is going to do. um, when our clients reported to the fbi, they expected a certain result to come of that and they were grossly, grossly disappointed, as you could hear from makayla's testimony. so, we don't know what the result is going to be. they have six months to respond
7:35 pm
to either attempt to evaluate the claims, to settle them, or to deny them. um, and we will react to whatever they choose to do. >> you know, one thing we do know they are not going to criminally prosecute those fbi agents. we know there was a declination to prosecute. what do you make of that decision? >> it is outrageous. it's simply outrageous. we have a report from the insp inspector general's office, indicating that these agents engaged in misconduct, concealed evidence, and ultimately allowed larry nassar to return to michigan state and sexual lay because dozens of others. so, the idea that that can happen, um, and nobody is criminally charged for it is simply outrageous. >> now ultimately, your clients are seeking a monetary, um, amount. but i do wonder. i know just from hearing their riveting testimony, the power of their words and that lingering question of what is the point? i mean, just the idea of i -- i
7:36 pm
have prosecuted so many delayed sexual reporting cases, and talking to victims and survivors of this abuse. and we encourage people to report because we hope there will be accountability and justice to be doled and meted out. what, for your clients, how will they define accountability and justice here? it's not just about the number. >> no, it's certainly not just about the number. what accountability looks like is understanding what happened. last summer, we got the report from the inspector general's office and they gave us a lot of the who, a lot of the what, a lot of the when, and finally gave some of those answers. but the most important question that our clients want answered is, why? why did this happen? why did highly-trained fbi agents, um, who presumably have handled cases like this before -- why did they botch this so, so horrifically? and -- and that's what this is
7:37 pm
a about. it is understanding why this happened and these women have come forward, you know, going on nearly seven years ago now. um, and all they wanted is their voice to be heard and they wanted, um, to know why their complaints weren't acted upon. so you know, money aside, that is the most important thing is getting to the bottom of what happened so little girls in the future don't have to go through what they went through. >> at any time, and i don't mean to suggest that this would, by any stretch, be enough -- but at any time, has anyone stepped up to the plate and offered some semblance of an apology? some offer of an explanation of the why? helped to try to convey some sentiment? has any of that happened? i mean, i have heard from them. we have heard decision not to prosecute. have they ever had anyone take
7:38 pm
the time to at least recognize, on this level, that they were heard? >> you know, i think there was a step taken, um, by the testimony provided to congress. but these women have heard, um, lip service from num -- numerous organizations. from usa gymnastics, from michigan state. and they are hearing the same things from the fbi. recently, they have been quiet. um, but what they want is those answers, and what they want are -- are real answers to the questions that, um, you know, linger in their mind about how these girls who came after them could have been prevented this horror that they suffered. >> alex, thank you so much. we will continue to follow this really important story. >> thank you, laura. we turn now to a health crisis for one of pop music's

and be associated with a lot of fa facial pain, ear pain, and then that is followed by a rash, looks like chickenpox vesicles on the ear, and then facial paralysis. i didn't -- in the video, of course, the resolution is not great. i don't see the chickenpox vesicles that you might see with it but you don't always have to have that. so presumably, he has been diagnosed by a physician. and usual, yly, you do recover. sometimes, it can take several weeks or months before that happens. the older you are with it, it's more common to see this in 60 to 70-year-olds. the less likely you are to have a full recovery but hopefully, as a young, healthy guy, he will do okay with it but it could take some time. >> and i should note you have not treated him, um, at all. you are not his medical provider but i do wonder about this -- the bell's palsy, as well. because it piqued my interest
7:46 pm
when you spoke about dough covid 19 and others as well, other illnesses. what are the distinchzs between what you are seeing with this idea of ramsey hunt syndrome compared to, say, bell palsy? >> well, there is overlap. and the two can look similar, and sometimes it presents a diagnostic dilemma. usually, with bells palsy, there is less severe. 90% of the cases resolve. and -- and i think the big differentiator is less -- much less pain and not associated with characteristic rash, the appearance of vesicles. so, that is, you know, just looking -- looking at his video, i guess that is one possibility but presumably, he didn't come up with ramsey hunt on his own. he must be under the dcare of a physician. whether it is a neurologist or some other type of maybe an infectious disease physician who is -- who feels comfortable making that diagnosis. maybe, they are seeing vesicles in the ear or mouth or it's hard
7:47 pm
to really read the tea leaves of the video, of course. >> well, let me ask you. how -- how does one reverse the paralysis? is it -- is it a form of physical therapy? is it taking its time and having to wait? what is it? >> well, there are a few things. with ramsey hunt, it is actually caused by a reactivation of the chickenpox virus. so, you take an antiviral drug, whether it is a -- and so that's of -- of number one importance. second, sometimes steroids can help resolve the inflammation. that is exacerbating some of the facial paralysis. and the third, of course, the most important is time. it takes time to -- to resolve. and it can take a few months sometimes. >> dr. hotez, thank you. we have educated us on something that many people probably have not heard of. thank you so much. and -- and coming up, we will have chilling new audio of the man authorities say showed up outside the supreme court
