♪ good morning to our viewers here in the united states and all around the world, it is friday, june 24th. i'm john berman with brianna keilar. just say it was corrupt and leave the rest to me and republican congressmen. a sentence that rang across the halls of the capitol and this morning might very well be ringing into the courtroom. after a day of sworn testimony about how former president trump tried to weaponize the justice
department to overthrow the results of the 2020 election, even some former trump administration officials and allies are acknowledging to cnn that the revelations were damaging. the most damaging yet. even bleak. so why, why so damaging? and what now? that is the focus this morning. testimony about a relentless almost daily effort to push officials to say things that were not true and do things that arguably were not legal. a scheme that seemed minutes from success to install a man named jeffrey clark, an environmental lawyer, an election lie promoter into the top job at the justice department. federal investigators raided clark's home wednesday, the day before he was to be the focus of this congressional hearing. clark described the raid overnight. >> at one point, you know, 12 agents and 2 fairfax county
police officers went into my house, searched it for three and a half hours. they even brought along something, tucker, i have never seen before or heard of, an electronic sniffing dog and they took all of the electronics from my house. >> in the meantime cnn has brand-new reporting that georgia investigators are scrutinizing rudy giuliani's appearance before state lawmakers in 2020 where he peddled baseless claims of voter fraud an encouraged legislators to appoint a new slate of presidential electors. cnn has also learned federal investigators are pursuing information in all seven battleground states that trump lost, but where his campaign convened fake electors. let's bring in cnn's sara murray for a broader look at yesterday's hearing. there are so many things from this hearing that were rather ground shaking. >> i know. there really were. it was a lot to take in because i feel like these witnesses really just brought to life how close the former president was
to achieving his attempt at pulling off a coup. >> reporter: stunning testimony from top justice department officials detailing the repeated attempts by then president donald trump to pressure the department of justice to subvert the 2020 election. >> so between december 23rd and january 3rd the president either called me or met with me virtually every day with one or two exceptions, like christmas day. the common element of all of this was the president expressing his dissatisfaction that the justice department in his view had not done enough to investigate election fraud. >> reporter: during multiple meetings and phone calls in the weeks after the election trump instructed the officials to endorse his unfounded claims of voter fraud. >> just asking you to do is just say it was corrupt and leave the rest to me and the republican congressmen. >> reporter: in a conversation on december 27th with then acting attorney general jeffrey rosen and deputy attorney
general richard donoghue trump tried to pressure them to say the election was corrupt according to handwritten contemporaneous notes taken by donoghue. >> were any of the allegations he brought up credible? did you find any of them credible? >> no, throughout all of these meetings and telephone conversations he was adamant that he had won and we were not doing our job, but it did escalate over time. >> reporter: the department did investigate numerous claims of voter fraud. >> the fact that i put myself in the position that i could say that we had looked at this and didn't think there was fraud was really important to moving things forward and i sort of shutter to think what the situation would have been if the position of the department was we are not even looking at this until after biden is in office. i'm not sure we would have had a transition at all. >> reporter: during a contentious meeting with doj officials and white house lawyers on january 3rd trump suggested appointing doj environmental lawyer jeffrey clark as attorney general.
>> i made the point that jeff clark is not even competent to serve as the attorney general. he has never been a criminal attorney, has never conducted a criminal investigation in his life. he's never been in front of a trial jury and he kind of retorted by saying, well, i have done a lot of very complicated appeals and civil litigation and environmental litigation and things like that and i said, that's right, you are an environmental lawyer. how about you go back to our office and we will call you when there is an oil spill. >> reporter: clark was in attendance at that oval office meeting and the white house logs even listed him as acting attorney general. the environmental attorney had written a letter for the department of justice to send to officials in georgia, falsely claiming prosecutors had, quote, identified significant concerns with the vote there and asking them to reconsider their slate of electors. >> when he finished discussing what he planned on doing i said [ bleep ] a-hole,
congratulations, you just admitted the first step as attorney general would be committing a felony. >> reporter: the doj officials in the room threatened to resign in protest and said there would be mass resignations at the department if clark was instated. >> suppose i replace him, jeff roach, with him, jeff clark, what would you do? i said, mr. president, within 24, 48, 72 hours you could have hundreds and hundreds of resignations of the leadership of your entire justice department because of your actions. what's that going to say about you? >> reporter: the select committee investigating january 6th also named six republican members who allegedly asked about pardons after the january 6 capitol attack. most have denied asking for one or not publicly admitted it. congressman mo brooks told cnn he spoke of pardons with trump on more than one occasion. he says he was advocating for republicans who voted against certifying the election in arizona and pennsylvania to receive pardons claiming he was fearful democrats would
prosecute and jail them after president joe biden assumed office. committee chairman benny thompson says the committee has proof. >> the only reason i know to ask for a pardon is because you think you've committed a crime. >> all right. sara murray, stick around. with me now laura jarrett "early start" anchor who covered the justice department for years and ryan goodman professor at nyu school of law and former special counsel to the general counsel of the department of defense. lawyer ration that was a great overview of the totality of what we saw yesterday, the enormity in some ways of what we saw yesterday and after it was done trump administration officials and allies told our kaitlan collins they thought it was the most damaging hearing yet, even pl bleak. why? >> because you had three trump appointees, not democrats, lifelong republicans, going on the record saying that the former president of the united states instructed them to tell a
lie, to tell a lie about election fraud that did not happen and the only reason that brought him back from the brink, the only reason that he didn't go through with it was that he was told the optics would be so bad that the entire justice department top ranks would quit. that's the only reason he didn't go through with it and we have a peek behind the curtain into his intent directly now from donoghue, the acting deputy attorney general, who was told to just say it was corrupt, which means just say -- just say a lie, just say it didn't happen and that speaks to his intent and i think that was a key part of what is so damaging in the eyes of even trump allies. >> just say it was corrupt and leave the rest to me and republican congressmen. and to be clear, donoghue, rosen had repeatedly told him it wasn't corrupt. that the idea it was corrupt was a lie. ryan, my question to you is if everything we heard yesterday there was that sentence, there was a sentence which jumped out
at me where donoghue testifies the president said to him you guys may not be following the internet the way i do. of all of it where is the greatest legal jeopardy for donald trump? >> so i think we heard it in part from eric herschmann white house lawyer he says to jeffrey clark if you go through with this your very first act as acting attorney general will be to commit a felony. so there is a felony in trying to send this letter to georgia and other states on the basis of a false hood and say you need to decertify before january 6 that's interfering in an election. the other is a political coercion act, you are not ever able to coerce a u.s. official to intervene on behalf of a candidate. they were threatening rosen with his very job if he didn't go through with their scheme. >> laura, the letter which you are holding in your hand. >> yeah. >> this letter was not sent. >> no. >> explain to me exactly what's wrong with this letter in your mind and also why it could still
be a legal issue even though it was not sent? >> you don't have to have the conspiracy actually completed to actually have the intent to commit a crime here and we know that the president knew about this letter, we know this is how jeffrey clark curried favor with him was he was trying to convince the top levels of the justice department, people who testified yesterday, people like rosen and donoghue, to sign on to it, which they thought was nuts, and even pat cipollone the former white house counsel said you go through with this it's essentially a murder-suicide pact i think was the amazing quote. the idea is that they were going to tell georgia something that wasn't true, tell them that they had identified significant concerns that would affect the state's election results. again, this is all part of this phoney scheme to sort of disrupt the electors and to submit fake electors and so if you had to send it back to the states they could potentially send up new people. but even though it wasn't completed, even though it wasn't sent i think it does speak to
questions surrounding the former president's intent. now, what prosecutors do with it i don't know, but i think it's interesting that the feds were at clark's house for over three hours wednesday morning, something tells me they want to see the drafts of this letter. >> that's behind door number two here. behind door number one in the congressional hearings, behind door number two or maybe door number one was this raid by federal investigators at the home of jeffrey clark wednesday. what does this tell you about what they might be focused on? >> it's extraordinary. i mean, this is a breakthrough. up and to this point we never knew whether or not the fbi was investigating this part of the scheme, up until now all we knew is that they were investigating the alternative slate of electors on the state level. so this really does speak to what attorney general merrick garland told the country that they will pursue anybody criminally responsible.
the scheme he was involved in is directly tied to donald trump it does speak to where this might go. >> what came into clear view yesterday is how many levers donald trump was pulling when it came to u.s. government departments and agencies. it wasn't just doj that he was pressuring relentlessly. dhs, dod, trying to get them to track down the conspiracy theories. >> one of the most outrageous things that was confirmed yesterday that he did was try to pressure the justice department and the department of homeland security to actually seize voting machines. he wanted to know if he could use the law enforcement capacity of the united states federal government to further his completely unfounded allegations that the election was invalid. if they would have done it, that's what he wanted. i mean, he really wanted them to actually go out, physically seize voting machines and stop the count.
>> you had the defense secretary joe walsh who was calling up the american defense attaché in italy trying to track down this conspiracy theory, totally baseless, about satellites changing votes, this having to do obviously with the italian satellites in this theory. what did you think learning that? >> nuts, but so dangerous and, brianna, you said it, the president used all these levers of government to, as carrie said, pressure everybody to lie. think about that. he was using the powers of his office to pressure almost every government department to lie. i went to bed last night thinking that prosecuting a former president is difficult and risky, but prosecuting a former president who used the powers of his office to overturn an american election isn't. isn't. and he pressured the top law enforcement officers in the country to lie. >> bill barr talked about this a little bit in his interview and
this is how he explained why they were chasing some of these things for trump that actually this was important in the scheme of things to make sure that there was a peaceful transition of power. >> i think the fact that i put myself in the position that i could say that we had looked at this and didn't think there was fraud was really important to moving things forward and i sort of shutter to think what the situation would have been if the position of the department was we are not even looking at this until after biden is in office. i'm not sure we would have had a transition at all. >> he's saying they had to placate trump, right? >> yeah, and in some ways that seems crazy because there was no evidence, but he still felt the need to look, but in other ways i think bill barr maybe at this point thought he was still dealing with a rational individual, that he may be able to say we've looked into this, we've contacted a number of states, you know, this satellite thing has been investigated and we haven't found anything, you
know, it's time to accept you lost, it's time to move on. i think what bill barr came to realize is he was no longer dealing with somebody who was behaving like a rational individual. >> is bill barr right, do you think, joe, in his assessment there, we had to do this, or is it also convenient to explain why they were doing it? >> i think it's convenient and i think, again, bill barr and so many of these people around the president they all knew this was bs and they did placate him and they are all covering their backs a little bit right now. >> yeah, i don't think it's a story of heroism on bill barr's part. there is a lot of reputation rehabilitation going on in his deposition which he knew might be used in a public format and, frankly, an fbi investigation or a justice department investigation is only supposed to be initiated when there are some factual basis or credible threat indicating that that investigation should be launched. it shouldn't be launched on conspiracy theories and so frankly the fact that he even
launched some kind of investigation or was doing inquiries using the resources of the federal government based on baseless unfounded facts is not actually a great story. >> stick around for me, we have so much more to talk about here. some new fallout over the revelation that half a dozen republican lawmakers requested presidential pardons following the insurrection. plus, what the january 6th committee asked a documentary filmmaker who was embedded within trump world for nearly six months and why they're zeroing in on his interview with ivanka trump. over night a key step forward on the gun safety bill with 15 senate republicans voting yes. l, the auburns value time spent together. to share wisdom... i got some of my gold before i came to this country. i got some of my gold before you passed the bread. encourage one another... i can buy gold for this?! you can buy gold for this. and talk about life's wins and misses. responsibly sourced lilike my gold but not responsibly y cooked.

white house lawyer that at least six republican members of congress asked then president donald trump to grant them pardons in connection to january 6. scott perry, matt gaetz, mo brooks, louie gohmert and marjorie taylor greene. we all remember from the first hearing when liz cheney talked about members of congress asking for pardons. i think all of our ears perked up and we wanted to know, okay, who are they and what do they have on them. they, carrie cordero, had the receipts yesterday. >> they brought an actual white house aide to the president who testified in her deposition which is under oath and they have it on video and showed it in the hearing yesterday that specific members and she named them gaetz, brooks, biggs, gohmert, perry and she said marjorie taylor greene had asked another white house lawyer for a pardon. what i think is remarkable about these was the scope of the pardons that some of the testimony indicated they were
asking for prospective, so a pardon based on crimes that haven't even been charged that they didn't know necessarily were being investigated but it reflects what i think several of the hearings have drawn out which is that so many people knew at the time that what they were doing was probably illegal and unconstitutional. >> and, brianna, so many members of congress, republicans, knew at the time. that haunting line of trump's, leave it up to me and the rest of the republican congressmen, we will take care of it, they were in on it. trump believed he had republican members of congress lined up to help him steal this election. >> joe, what it seems they will behind mind is what mo brooks put this that letter requesting a pardon pursuant to matt gaetz's pardon where he basically says the left doesn't look us, they're going to come after us and use every lever of government against us.
he's not saying we did something wrong and we need cover, we went out on a limb for the president, he's saying they're going to use the government in a way they shouldn't to come after us. >> mo brooks wanted everybody -- every republican who voted not to approve the election that night pardoned as well. gaetz wanted himself pardoned for everything he had done since he had been born. >> that was breathtaking, the scope of the pardons. the scope of the matt gaetz pardon it makes you wonder what did he think he was going to be doing for the rest of his life that he that he felt like he needed a pardon that was this extensive. seems like a convenient explanation to just say we believe the democrats are going to come after us. >> what did you think, sara, about the fact that you have members of congress who were asking for pardons saying at the time, no, i wasn't, or they're saying, actually, no, that didn't happen and it is in text messages? >> yeah, what was strike to go me was scott perry yesterday after this hearing he said he didn't seek a pardon, he said he was never pushing jeffrey clark
to, you know, move up at doj and in this hearing they are reading text messages between scott perry and mark meadows where perry is talking with meadows about elevating jeffrey clark. it just points torques one, how brazen they feel about this and two, how convinced they are that there is just not going to be any accountability for their actions, that they are willing to just come out and say that thing that they presented evidence for in writing, no, we didn't do that. >> do you think there will be accountability, joe? >> i hope so. and the other thing is they've learned -- these republicans have learned from trump just lie, lie, lie, lie, lie. don't stop lying. that's what perry was doing yesterday. >> and the only reason that some of this is coming out to begin with is because there are certain white house officials who are willing to go under oath. i mean, these are people who didn't want to not cooperate and be referred to criminal contempt and potentially expose themselves. so you see a difference between people's public statements in which they don't necessarily
tell the truth and the difference in people who are under oath and understand the gravity of the situation, the power that the committee holds and the potential out there justice department risk that they might face. >> brianna mentioned the mo brooks possible defense going forward on the pardon issue. i want to explore for a second as we look forward about what next how donald trump and his allies might defend themselves against some of the things that have come out. our evan perez did reporting on donoghue and rosen who testified yesterday, for everything that they said and for as upset as they seem to be about the norms being upended, evan reports that if asked they would say that they didn't believe that they were asked to do anything that would break the law. that donald trump wasn't asking them to break the law is their opinion. the documentary filmmaker told our don lemon that he came to believe that donald trump really did think the election was stolen. so is that a defense? >> it's not a defense against multiple federal crimes.
so take one example. even if donald trump truly believed he won, he can't pressure mike pence to violate his duties. that's understood in the d.c. circus as corruptly obstructing congressional proceedings. example number two, georgia, the fulton county district attorney, the law there is you can't threaten the secretary of state to find the votes even if you think in your heart of hearts you won. it's just not even a part of the argument that a defense could raise for that. we threatened him but i really thought i won, that's why i threatened him with criminal sanction and put his life in jeopardy, which he in his book says that's how he felt. >> you also have to look at the reasonableness of it. everybody and your mother is telling you you're wrong, this is a violation of the law, the acting attorney general says this would violate the constitution, he's been told by pat cipollone this would violate the law, told by donoghue this would violate the plan. if you've been told the plan that you want to go through with
is problematic, even if you're somehow with your head in the sand and your hands over your ears at a certain point it's no longer reasonable to carry that belief. so whether he did or he didn't, at some point i think is going to become not the request he anymore. >> you have the acting attorney general, you have your white house counsel telling you it's crazy and against the law, but donald trump leaned on the internet. donald trump says you guys may not be following the internet the way that i do. again, that may carry legal significance. and then i go back to this question, though, and this is something that took place in the mueller investigation also, none of this ended up happening to its fruition. jeffrey clark did not become the acting attorney general. >> even though they had listed him that way on -- even though he had clearly been given that job. >> well, that is interesting, too. but does it matter in any legal way that ultimately trump did not push out the doj apparatus there? >> so it doesn't in the sense
that the political coercion act actually says an attempt to coerce, so kind of done at that level. and then also conspiracy. as long as an individual in the conspiracy took an affirmative act i do think actually having appointed him as acting attorney general is an affirmative act. trump did it and, in fact, even clark says to rosen you gave me the offer and i accepted it. >> or even the attempt to obstruct an official proceeding. just because january 6 didn't work out and mike pence actually certified the votes doesn't mean they didn't try, they didn't try to stop the certification, just because it didn't go forward. >> counselor, counselor, thank you. and thank you everyone in washington as well. i mean, a very interesting discussion about where we are now this morning. also we do have brand-new reporting this morning on rudy giuliani as georgia investigators close in on his efforts to overthrow the election results in that state. this as georgia governor brian kemp is set to provide testimony to the special purpose grand jury investigating former

brand-new cnn reporting, the special purpose grand jury in georgia has now heard testimony from at least four witnesses regarding rudy giuliani's involvement in trying to overturn the results in that state. state senator jen jordan is telling cnn that it seemed clear to her that trump's legal team and republican lawmakers had conspired to present a false narrative that went beyond just trying to effect public opinion. let's bring back carrie cordero and sara murray who broke this story. tell us what you're learning about this investigation, which is at a county level to be clear. >> yeah, you know, this is an investigation into donald trump and his allies' actions to overturn the election but we've learned in recent weeks witnesses have been asked a lot
of questions about rudy giuliani and his role in the state trying to help donald trump achieve these end. he went before panels of state lawmakers on two different occasions where he spread wild conspiracy claims about voter fraud, he started to play the groundwork that the state legislature could pick a different slate of electors. we talked to a number of democratic lawmakers who went before the grand jury and were describing these hearings came together in an unusual fashion, it was this surreal bizarre experience that giuliani was there, sharing this sort of information, and at the time they kind of felt like, wow, this is such an absurd thing that is happening. now as they look back at it in retro spect and in the context of everything else we've learned what they see is that this narrowly avoid this had constitutional crisis when donald trump wasn't able to flip the election results there. now, i talked to a lawyer for rudy giuliani, we had an interesting conversation. he said the district attorney's office there has been in touch, that somebody tried to ask him
to accept service for a document for giuliani and i said do you think that perhaps might have been a subpoena to maybe appear before the grand jury? and he said, i don't know, because we didn't accept the service of that document. >> oh, so they're yet to be served. >> it's hard to know exactly what they wanted to deliver to rudy giuliani. >> interesting. as of that conversation. okay. so what happens here? is rudy giuliani potentially going to be charged here and what would that mean for trump, carrie? >> i think it's too soon to say that rudy giuliani is going to be charged in the state of georgia, but, you know, one of the things that came out of the hearing yesterday and i think it was acting deputy attorney general donoghue, he emphasized the fact that the states are in charge of elections and so the fact that rudy giuliani went down to georgia and was trying to interfere, trying to overturn their elections in particular gives that state and their state law enforcement authorities the ability to investigate whether their laws or the constitution of georgia potentially or state
laws regarding election laws, whether those laws were violated in particular. i think based on the reporting it's too soon to say whether rudy giuliani has exposure but, look, any of these lawyers who were involved, whether it's at the federal level or in particular states, any of these lawyers, rudy giuliani, john eastman, they all put themselves in the position of furthering what is potentially this broader conspiracy to overturn the election and just because they're lawyers doesn't give them immunity from potential criminal exposure. >> any idea what the nonservice may be about? >> i would have to see more about what that is. clearly his lawyer is not going to accept a service if he doesn't have to so georgia will have to do a more deliberate job if they're intend to go serve him with process. a surreal split screen in america this morning as the senate passes the first bipartisan gun safety bill in 30 years and the supreme court makes it easier to carry firearms in public.

was representative gaetz requesting a pardon? >> i believe so. a pardon that he was discussing, requesting, was as broad as you could describe. >> mr. biggs did, mr. jordan talked about congressional pardons but he never asked me for one. mr. gomer asked for one as well. mr. perry asked for a pardon, too. i'm sorry. >> did marjorie taylor greene? >> no, she didn't contact me about it. i heard that she had asked white house counsel office for a pardon. >> former trump white house aides testifying that six republican lawmakers sought presidential pardons following the january 6 insurrection.
here now is democratic congressman josh gottheimer of new jersey, the co-chair of the problem solvers caucus and homeland security committee and financial services committee. the testimony which i'm sure you heard from trump insiders that these colleagues of yours, republican congressmen were seeking pardons after january 6. what does that tell you? >> i think everyone who hears that should react the same way, this was an attack on our democracy and we need to take -- and this is why we're having these hearings -- every step and every measure to ensure there is not an attack like that again on our capitol and including making sure we get to the bottom of every fact and all the information on the table and what we heard yesterday was obviously chilling as we've heard in all these hearings. what you've also heard are democrats and republicans coming together and saying this can never happen again in our country and we need to get -- we need to have total
accountability. >> what questions do you have about these fellow members of yours, these republicans who are asking for pardons according to the testimony? >> i mean, you're seeing those facts on the table now, right? what exactly did they have in mind? why were they asking for the pardons? what else -- what else happened in the days leading up to the attack? what happened that day? and that's what i think all americans want to know and should know. the whole purpose of these hearings to me is making sure we have total accountability and do everything we can, as i said a minute ago, to prevent an attack on our country like that again. so i think the fact that we're getting this information out there is critically important for the country, but also to make sure that we can move forward and protect our democracy. >> in the state of the union address president biden called for additional funding for police across the country. you signed on to a letter or a key figure in sending a letter to house speaker nancy pelosi,
32 sign3 32 signatures, to have the house pass more bills that would give funding for the police including the invest to protect act. why are you sending this letter? >> i think now as we've seen 150 officers this year shot in the country, murder rates up 30% year over year, so many officers shot both in the area where i live, but across the country, you're seeing crime up, we've seen in new jersey car theft up more than 30% this year, we need to just reiterates the importance of investing not in defunding law enforcement and what our package of laws, proposed laws does, and, by the way, these are are all bipartisan bills, what they do is invest in law enforcement, in everything from training and including active shooter trainer and deescalation training to investment in mental health resources for our officers, which are critical, retention
and recruitment. right now we're having trouble recruiting officers and obviously keeping officers. more resources for body cameras. more resources to help our smaller departments obviously which we have these requirements to make sure we have safer departments, they cost money, we need to help our smaller departments out. these are all measures that i think have strong bipartisan support. my bill has nearly 80 members on t including democrats and republicans, it was passed out of the senate judiciary committee unanimously. all we're saying is we should vote on this legislation to get the backs of our law enforcement officers so they can protect themselves and also protect our communities. right now it's critically important that we take those steps and all we're asking for is a vote on these bipartisan bills. >> as you know the supreme court yesterday issued a major ruling on gun safety and the second amendment and made it easier for people to carry weapons in states and cities really challenging new jersey, new york, other state laws. does that make the streets safer in your mind? >> well, obviously i think
that's a step in the wrong direction, but what we're going to vote on today in the house is a step in the right direction. and the good news from yesterday was historic, right? you've got a bipartisan bill out of the senate that we're going to vote on in the house that will take measures to make our children, our families safer, make our schools safer and obviously more background checks, more resources to our states for red flag legislation, more investment in mental health. and i think what we'll see -- and democrats and republicans see these will lead to safer streets and schools and that to me is what we should celebrate today. obviously i disagreed strongly with where the court came out but that's why we need to keep taking these measures to keep our schools and families safer. >> thanks for joining us on "new day." >> it's great to see you. thanks so much for having me. new developments in the case against house speaker nancy pelosi's husband after he was arrested for a dui following a car crash. and we have more on the

legendary tennis star arthur ashe not only made history as a black athlete ak selling at a predominantly white sport, he changed the way the world looked at social issues to hiv/aids. citizen ashe takes a fresh look at the impact ashe had both on and off the court. joining us now anson carter an nhl analyst on tv, also a former nhl player and current co-chair of the nhl player inclusion committee. i have to say i'm a bruins fan so it's an honor to get to speak to you in-person today. look, arthur ashe was a black
tennis player in a predominantly white sport. you were a black hockey player in a predominantly white sport. what kind of influence do you think ashe had on you and the sports world? >> yeah,'d tremendous influence on myself and to your point it was, you know, the fact that he was a black player playing in a white sport, i could definitely relate to what arthur ashe went through. it's easy, i think it would be easier if i was a football player or a basketball player to speak out on these issues because you have more support around you with your teammates that look like you, but when you're playing a sport like hockey or a sport like tennis sometimes i feel like you are on a bit of an island. i gain a lot of strength and a lot of courage from watching him, listening to what arthur ashe went through when he played tennis. >> you worked so hard to become and stay a successful player but also worked so hard and developed over time as an
advocate. how hard is it to speak out as an athlete? >> you know, it's hard if you don't have the support of your team or your organization that you work for, but i've been fortunate, you know, now especially being at turner and tnt that we've got great teammates around us, around me that have given me the courage to continue to speak. i'm the co-chair of the national hockey league's player inclusion committee which we have several brilliant men and women, current and former players either in the national teams when it comes to the women or nhl players when it came to the men, but having that support system i think is so critical, but now when you see with social media and the development of, you know, the technology that we have today, a lot of athletes their presence is even larger than even a lot of teams. so when it comes to the sport of hockey, the name on the front of the jersey is bigger than the name on the back, but with tthe
presence with these athletes today you have an opportunity to make a positive impact. >> an honor to speak to you. thank you so much. >> thank you for having me. i appreciate it. >> go bruins. citizen ashe premieres at 9:00 p.m. only on cnn. the documentary filmmaker who sat down with former president trump, his adult children and vice president mike pence reveals what he discussed with the january 6th committee behind closed doors. plus -- >> i'm just asking you to do is just say it was corrupt and leave the rest to me and the republican congressmen. >> why trump world is reeling from the revelations of yesterday's january 6th hearing. we have new cnn reporting ahead. what's on the horizon? the answers lie beyond the roads we know. we recognize that energy demand is grorowing, and the world needs s lower carbon solutions to keep up. at chevron, wewe're working to find new ways forward, through investments and partnerships in innovative solutions.

with another driver last month. the napa county da's office says paul pelosi's misdemeanor charge is based upon the extent of the injury suffered by the victim. police determined that pelosi was at fault after a jeep struck his porsche on may 28. he could serve at least five days in jail and up to five years of probation. "new day" continues right now. good morning to viewers here in the u.s. and around the world, it is friday, june 24th. i'm brianna keilar with john berman. we are tracking the fallout from a fifth day of testimony at the january 6th committee hearings. this morning fingers are pointing, denials are flying and trump world is reeling. cnn has spoken to several former trump administration officials and allies and they acknowledge that yesterday's testimony from former justice department officials was damaging. we have much more -- much more damaging, they believe, than the previous four hearings, even bleak. the officials laid out how trump
attempted to weaponize the justice department for his political gain, pressuring them relentlessly with demands like this -- >> i'm just asking you to do is just say it was corrupt and leave the rest to me and the republican congressmen. >> that pressure, those calls, it was relentless, almost daily. pressure to say things that were not true. that these officials told the president were not true and pressure to do things that arguably were not legal. then there was the scheme to install this man, jeffrey clark, an environmental lawyer and election live promoter into the top job at justice. federal investigators raided clark's home wednesday. the day before he was to be the focus of the congressional hearing. clark described the raid overnight. >> at one point, you know, 12 agents and two fairfax county police officers went into my house, searched it for three and a half hours. they even brought
