6:00 am
>> i couldn't imagine what it would be like living in a tent, under a tarp or in your car when it's 100 degrees outside or just super hot. it's unimaginable. >> a small gesture like water and food means a lot. >> it is. that man says he's grateful for the volunteers because people like him deserve care and compassion. cnn's coverage continues right now. it is the top of the hour. good monday morning. i'm poppy harlow. jim has a well deserved day off. we are following several stories this morning. in california a huge raging wildfire has scorched more than 15,000 acres since friday. officials say they have no containment on what is now the oak fire burning near yosemite national park. right now, more than 6,000 people have been evacuated. firefighters are facing excessive heat warnings and
6:01 am
temperatures, hitting record highs across the country, at the same time they are trying to battle this. plus, troubling signs for the u.s. economy. second quarter gdp, how much the economy grew and it's expected to shrink as president biden faces several economic challenges. inflation, continued supply chain issues, gas prices high but coming down. all of this overshadowing a 3.6%, very low unemployment rate. several key economic indicators expected this week. we'll talk about what's ahead. and republican congressman and january 6th committee vice chair liz cheney says a subpoena for ginni thomas, the wife of supreme court justice clarence thomas, is not off the table. anxiety is growing among republicans over the committee's revelations about former president trump and many in the party are now encouraging other republicans to jump in the 2024 race for the white house. let's begin with the wildfire in california. our national correspondent
6:02 am
camilla is at the scene of the fire in mariposa county. is it still this morning zero percent contained? >> reporter: unfortunately, it is, poppy, despite all of the efforts, despite additional resources. more than 2,000 people working on this fire, zero percent containment. i'm standing in one of the areas that makes part of those more than 15,000 acres that are already burned. so, what's left behind is a lot of these hot spots. the ash and the very, very thick smoke. thankfully, though, temperatures are lower. this is very helpful for firefighters. this is the time when they tried to make progress because in the afternoon, it gets really difficult for those firefighters as the temperatures increase. cal fire saying it's been difficult for a number of reasons. first of all, the drought. they say there's so much dry material in this area that it makes the flames spread quickly. so, that's challenging for those firefighters. they say the afternoon
6:03 am
temperatures are also a really difficult time in the day for those firefighters. and then they say the terrain, it is very steep. it's hard to get to those flames in some cases. we've seen round after round of fire retardant being dropped throughout the day. and yet no progress. so, that's difficult. and then they say it's hard to get to the people in this area. a lot of them big in five acres of land, surrounded by forest. a lot is overgrown and dry. what authorities are saying is, look, if you're under an evacuation order, please get out because it is going to be very difficult to come back and get you after those firefighters or those sheriff deputies have already gotten people out of this area. unfortunately, though, i have talked to people who say, look, i just don't want to leave. i want to stay here. i want to protect my property. someone i met yesterday even had his own fire truck. so just people not wanting to leave their house and their animals behind.
6:04 am
the reality is that there's still a lot of work to be done here as we're still at zero percent containment. >> so much work to do under the worst of conditions for them. thanks to you and your team on the ground. more than 60 million americans, talking about this record heat, are under heat alerts this morning as temperatures in the northeast could surge as high as the upper 90s again today. we certainly felt it all weekend. several cities including boston and philadelphia saw record heat yesterday. the heat wave turned deadly in new york city. at least one person died from heat exposure over the weekend. palo sandoval joins me and chad myers in the cnn weather center. it's so dangerous, hot and dangerous for people that don't have air conditioning, for the elderly, for children in certain circumstances. this is not expected to let up. how are things where you are? >> reporter: poppy, that's one of the reasons why people did whatever they could to stay cool. cooling centers are open
6:05 am
throughout the region to make sure those without air conditioning at home could at least have a cool place to get through the latest heat wave. now with the forecast calling for no more record-setting temperatures in and around the area today, that is certainly being met with some relief. it was a scorcher of a weekend. just look at the numbers that were logged over the weekend not far from here. newark international, 102 degrees. that was the fifth consecutive day that that particular observation station saw triple digit heat. five straight days in a row. that is the longest stint since they began to take the national weather service started taking temperatures at that location in the 1930s. in new york city, 98 degrees, tying a record. in boston, 99. that's one of the reasons why the heat alert last week was extended through yesterday, and still in place today because of the combination of high temperatures and humidity level still going to pose a threat for people in boston. what you hear from new york city mayor eric adams, saying it
6:06 am
seems like people heard the warning to stay cool and take care of each other because they did not see a significant increase in heat-related -- people suffering heat-related illness at area hospitals. >> it appears throughout the media and notifications people are taking the notice seriously. we only had one heat-related death that was reported thus far. but we have cooling systems. i believe people are really responding. >> reporter: finally with a potential break on the horizon, as you're about to hear, there are still heat related advisories in new york, philadelphia, boston, with temperatures combined from area thunderstorms will make for high heat index. >> thank you. chad, to you, i was reading this morning this is expected in new york city to last for the week, is that right? is that the story across a lot
6:07 am
of the northeast? >> the cold front does come through today with some thunderstorms. we're not going to be running close to 100 for the week at all. 100 in boston, though, at logan, near the water, i mean, that's really telling you something. this heat just had no let up this weekend. across the cape, temperatures were in the middle and upper 80s to lower 90s. today we're still going to be one more day of heat, but that cold front should probably arrive in new york city somewhere around 4:00. a little later in boston. we still have those heat advisories for today proper because it is still going to be hot. but it's raining across parts of saratoga springs. that rain is headed to the east and that's what the cold air behind it is pushing this humidity up, pushing it away and we'll be much better for the rest of the week. some of these storms could be severe. some storms could slow down the airports. some storms could be on top of new york city, boston, philadelphia, with a lot of lightning around. keep that in mind if you're
6:08 am
outside walking around. notice we are in the 80s, not the 90s or even approaching 100. in fact, the 100s have shifted out towards the pacific northwest. heat advisories, estes heat warnings, temperatures well above 100 from portland to med ford and all across the pacific northwest, poppy. >> polo sandoval, chad myers, thank you very much. to the economy, growing fears this morning again that the united states could be headed toward a recession. you have new consumer confidence numbers out tomorrow. the federal reserve indicating another rate hike as we wait for second quarter economic growth numbers. gdp expected to shrink. christie romans back from a well-deserved vacation back for all this data. it's a big week. >> so many guideposts along the way with conflicting. pointing to a recession on one hand, and you look at the labor market and things look fantastic for the labor market. this will give some clarity.
6:09 am
the fed will likely raise interest rates this week. we expect 75 basis points, three-quarters of a percentage point. that's kornt for consumers. this is the fed in the midst of trying to beat back inflation at a 40-year high and it means your borrowing costs are going to rise. there's a consequential event this week, which will be higher interest rates for you up. mentioned, poppy, thursday, that first reading of second quarter gdp, there's a possibility this is a negative number. two consecutive quarters of negative growth. that's one of the factors that can be used to determine a recession. there is a vigorous recession guessing game happening in the united states right now. we won't know for sure until it's already over. there isn't a yes/no button at the white house or wall street that says this is or isn't a recession. that's determined by economists later on. >> yellen, treasury secretary yellen yesterday said we're not in a recession, we're not headed there, but it matters so much how people feel. you have those consumer
6:10 am
confidence numbers coming out tomorrow. at the same time gas continues to fall six straight weeks. >> and people feel pretty lousy. i'm pretty sure the consumer confidence numbers will show that. john berman asked brian deese at the white house this morning, what is the state of the economy? he was pointing to those lower gas prices and other factors. he said resiliency. listen to how he put it. >> we have seen extraordinary resilience in this economy due largely to the resilience of our business and consumers but we need to take action right now to make things more affordable. >> he's talking about prescription drug issues and a bill in congress to try to help chip manufacturers do more production. there are some issues he's talking about there. but i think the bottom line is people don't feel great still about the economy. you tell them the gas prices have been falling for six weeks. they say, yeah, but they're still higher than last year. >> you go to the grocery store and you look in shock, as i did yesterday, as my kids are
6:11 am
throwing things in the cart. >> i know, poppy. i can't bring them at that age to the grocery store. >> i know. this is my wise mother friend over here. thank you very, very much. still to come right here for us on cnn, new reporting by cnn that a growing number in the republican party are pushing for more republicans to jump in to the 2024 primary field. the white house as we have new details about the message the former vice president mike pence will give in a speech tonight on the future of his party. plus, vice president harris heads to indiana today as lawmakers there hold a special session on abortion laws. this comes after the supreme court overturned roe versus wade. the wide-ranging implications for women in that state ahead. and in ukraine, details on a so-called plan b to try to get so much grain out of that country following russia's attack on the port of odesa. we're live. to your financial plan. bill, mary? hey... it's our former broker carl. carl, say hi to nina, our schwab financial consultltant.

6:16 am
this morning cnn has new reporting there are growing fears inside of the gop about former president trump's potential legal woes, prompting a growing number within the party to openly cheer for other republicans to jump into the 2024 primary field. let's get to capitol hill. this is your reporting. it's fascinating. encourage everyone to read it. what more are you learning? and is this a result of the tide changing because of the january 6th hearing and all the hearings over the past few months? >> i think it was a combination of things. it was the hearings, the growing investigation, general trump fatigue, just the idea they're worried about trump running again after he lost in 2020. what we have seen is a number and growing number of republicans starting to cheer for take competitive 2024 primary and encouraging candidates to get into the race. john thune, a member of gop leadership, says he thinks will will be other attractive candidates aside from trump
6:17 am
echoing comments from mitch mcconnell. dan crenshaw says he hopes it's competitive and there's a lot of people to choose from. he said he does not think that trump will be the automatic front-runner just because he jumps into the race. and then the republican study committee, a large conservative caucus here on capitol hill, hosted mike pence for a meeting last week where they encouraged him to run in 2024 and thanked him for his actions on january 6th. now, if trump does run and becomes the nominee, most republicans are going to fall in line. but what we are seeing is that there is a proxy battle that is starting to really heat up for 2024. particularly among mike pence and donald trump. both gop leaders spoke at competing rallies in arizona last week for their preferred candidates in the governor's race. and this week both of them will be delivering separate speeches at various think tanks. my colleague, mike warren, actually got his hands on a preview of mike pence's remarks tonight. i want to read you just one part
6:18 am
of his speech from tonight. one line that really stood out to me is mike pence is going to say, some people may choose to focus on the past, but i believe conservatives must focus on the future. so, clearly a veiled shot at trump there, who has continued to focus on his lies about the 2020 election. and this is really teeing up what could be a collision course between mike pence and donald trump. poppy? >> fascinating. thanks for the great reporting. joining me now to talk about these headlines and more, political investigations and enterprise reporter for "the washington post," and margaret hoover, host of pbs's "firing line" and worked in the george w. bush white house. i just wonder what your reaction is to what may happen in your party, pence, what he says tonight. >> a reckoning with trump is long overdue in the gop, poppy. it's no secret that's my feeling. that's my feeling for a long time.
6:19 am
i would like to see pence square off. i don't want to see all of these republican candidates jumping into the fray and actually giving trump the advantage because in a multicandidate primary where trump is the incumbent and has a firm grasp on the gop base, all he needs is 33% and everybody divides the rest, trump clears his path to the nomination again. you could see it happen all over. >> that's an interesting point. very notable that the editorial boards of two newspapers, both owned by former president trump media ally rupert murdoch, condemning the former president for his ablctions on the 6 thd action. trump's silence on 6th of january is damning. "the wall street journal" says the president who stood still on january 6th. how significant? >> it does show that parts of the party, definitely not the
6:20 am
full party, but parts of the republican party, parts of the conservative movement are moving away from the former president. they see what happened on january 6th, as we have seen with the activity of the january 6th committee where they've shown exactly what president trump was doing. they showed the 187 minutes where he did not act where he could have acted and ended some of the blood shed. for some republicans, that's a bridge too far and they're looking for alternatives. they're looking for someone who can carry the trumpism, conservative policies that trump backed, the populist policies he backed he was able to use to galvanize millions of voters without all of the toxicity, without the negativity, without the unconstitutional activity he also engaged in. there is a segment of the party, definitely not the full party but a segment of the party looking to move on. >> georgia, you know, the criminal investigation there clearly really heating up. that could change the calculus as well for folks. margaret, when we had you on on
6:21 am
friday, we were talking about what liz cheney said at the end of thursday night's hearing about the strength of women particularly as witnesses in these hearings. i want you to listen to what congresswoman cheney told my colleague jake tapper yesterday about why it's worth giving up her seat if that what happens, losing her seat, if that's what happens, in her election to do what she has been doing. listen. >> i'm fighting hard. no matter what happens on august 16th, i'm going to wake up on august 17th and continue to fight hard to ensure donald trump is never anywhere close to the oval office, ever again. >> if you end up losing your job in congress because of your work on this committee, it will have been worth it to you? >> there's no question. i believe that my work on this committee is the single most important thing i've ever done professionally. >> it may cost her in her state, but what about nationally,
6:22 am
margaret? >> liz cheney is just a paragon of principle right now. somebody that epitomizes what the founders wanted in a public servant. she's serving the public despite her political seat. she's most likely going to lose it. i think she knows that. she knows that's a price worth paying in order to further democracy, this experiment in democratic republicanism that the founders bestowed upon us. it's up to our generation to keep it up. that's you and me and all the public right now to learn from these hearings and take the lessons away in order to continue in this experiment. bless her for doing it. what it means for the republican party is at least there are some people who are willing to stand in a principled way for the constitution. >> the fascinating axios reporting on friday about, you know, if trump were to win office again and become
6:23 am
president again, reinstilling the so-called plan f, which is essentially to replace many, many civil servants, tens of thousands with those who are on the trump agenda. let me read you part of that reporting. trump allies are preparing to radically reshape the federal government if he's re-elected purging potentially thousands of civil servants, filling those career posts with loyalists to him and his america first ideology. this follows the supreme court decision in west virginia versus epa, which stripped away a lot of administrative powers. you can see how this changes agencies in a significant way. what do you make of that reporting? and the real, real emphasis on it, should president trump get re-elected? what would that mean for america? >> well, it would be a direct tar -- targeted direct attack on the civil service and the idea that people serve across administrations. they don't serve a political party as they're working in government. president trump has said he wants people to be loyal to him.
6:24 am
even said that to the fbi director. he wants that loyalty across all segments of the government. he would potentially, if he were to go forward with this policy, which he actually did sign this policy when he was about to leave office in 2020, this would be a major shift in the way we engage in government service in this country. it would be almost as if government officials across the government would have to have a loyalty test to a party it, a president. if they did not pass that loyalty test, they would be fired. that would be a major shift in the way our government operates. >> that's right. biden rescinded it, but what would happen if you were put back in place with more time to implement over years? thank you much. vice president kamala harris is heading to indiana today as the state considers strict -- new restrictions on abortions. we'll have a live report coming up. we're moments away from the opening bell on wall street. futures ticking higher.

6:30 am
welcome back. right now vice president kamala harris is heading to indianapolis to discuss the fight to protect reproductive rights. state lawmakers are preparing to convene for a special session to consider restrictions on abortion. the legislation in indiana under consideration right now would ban abortion in the state with the exception of rape, incest and the life of the mother. i will alexandra field joins us from indianapolis. i believe this is the first state to work to enact this type of legislation that wasn't already triggered post-roe. >> reporter: exactly. as soon as that decision on roe came down, you had a number of states that already had laws on the books. they implemented them almost immediately that resulted in the
6:31 am
rash of abortion bans. now we're seeing the next wave, republican-led states that will look to curb access to abortion. indiana leading the charge. their governor was among the first to call for a special session after the supreme court's decision came down. that means legislators are coming back into session now. they'll take up two bills related to abortion. one, which would increase funding and resources for expectant mothers. the other, which would restrict access to abortion at almost any stage of pregnancy except, of course, in those cases that you point out, rape, incest and cases where the life of the mother is potentially in danger. now, these bills, which are set to be discussed here at the capitol are, of course, drawing a lot of interest. we're expecting to see hundreds, perhaps thousands of people turning out to voice their opinions. either in support of the bill, against the bill or some saying it should come with even greater restrictions or stepped up enhancements in terms of
6:32 am
penalties for abortion care. people who want to be heard on the issue are actually welcome to be heard. they can sign up to testify in front of lawmakers. lawmakers will be hearing that testify this afternoon and again tomorrow. we're not expecting a vote from the senate before friday. then this would go over to the house. poppy, i have to point out that this is happening in a state that has seen an influx of women from other states who have come here to get abortion care because they are not able to get it in states that have already banned abortion. of course, this is also the place we first saw the controversy unfurl over a 10-year-old rape victim who had to travel from ohio to indianapolis to receive abortion care. the physician that provided that care has come under fire. she has responded on twitter about this bill, saying it would strip patients of the ability to rely on her in their moment of crisis. she has also now penned an op-ed for "the washington post"
6:33 am
talking about the bill itself and how it has left her with feelings of desperation, anguish and anger, poppy. >> alexandra field from indianapolis. we'll watch what happens with that legislation throughout the week. in the meantime, russia strikes ukraine's black sea, the port of odesa, hours after both countries signed that significant deal on grain exports from ukraine. what does this mean for that agreement? i'll talk to the former president of ukraine next.

6:38 am
so, as we just mentioned and you saw alexandra field reporting from indiana, that state is holding a special legislative session on abortion. right now vice president kamala harris is in indianapolis, discussing abortion. with me now is dr. tracy wilk wilkinson, a pediatrician and assistant professor of pediatrics at university of indiana school of medicine. her research is focused on improving access to reproductive health for young people. thank you for your time this morning. let's begin with the vice president's visit today to indianapolis. there are some things this administration can do on abortion rights, but there's a lot it can't do because of the supreme court's ruling. i wonder what you want to see from her, from the administration as a whole. >> yeah, we are so grateful for
6:39 am
vice president harris' visit today and bringing attention to our state, as well as the legislative session that gets started today. i think that this moment highlights the importance of, you know, national politics, but also state level politics. the attack on reproductive rights and abortion access has been happening for decades at the local level. and it's now time for us to activate all of our networks to push back. and we're seeing that happen in indiana today. >> when you say push back, in what ways? to what extent? i mean, you have major concerns. you've talked about a lot of your concerns and, you know, one of them -- one of the big concerns you've had for younger patients is that abortion legislation is often written by politicians without a medical expertise, without this background. explain why and then talk about specifically what you actually think the administration could do at this point. >> yeah. you know, indiana is the first
6:40 am
state to attempt to pass legislation after the supreme court decision. and i think when you look at this legislation, it really exposes the fallacies of trying to legislate medicine. this is an abortion ban in indiana. although there are exceptions for extreme cases, no person should feel safe living in our state with laws that are passed by legislators and do not have any medical expertise. i tell people all the time that there are no two patients that are alike. when you try to write a law that applies to every single clinical situation, you are going to get in trouble. >> let me ask you specifically about that because indiana state senator susan glick is the one who wrote the bill to ban abortion in indiana. she says the bill does not affect treatment of miscarriages, for example. that's been a big concern because treatments for miscarriages are often the same or similar to treatments for abortion. you wrote a piece in "the new york times" recently noting,
6:41 am
quote, lawmakers can claim the laws are not intended to hurt patients but they still fear providers that have implications for patients, nonetheless. can you speak to that and how that is affecting especially the work of your colleagues and you in reproductive health? >> yeah. we just watched one of our colleagues have her, you know, career in question every single part of her medical decision-making on national television. and there's an incredible chilling effect happening in indiana and all over the country that any one of us could be next. any one of us could be prosecuted or investigated by an attorney general who has intentions of trying to scare us for doing our job. so, while senator glick can say that this bill includes exceptions for our miscarriage care, she cannot be at every single clinical situation where
6:42 am
doctors are going to have to choose between criminalizing themselves or putting their patients at risk. and this is the inherent fallacy of trying to legislate medicine. we should not allow governments to legislate medicine when these decisions belong to patients and their clinical providers. >> let me end on this because nebraska's abortion ban is set to take effect thursday. there were a lot of sort of on the book trigger laws that took effect or could take effect when the supreme court handed down its decision in dobbs. so, in nebraska, the ban includes exceptions for rape or incest, and it also specifies there that the use of the dilation and evacuation method can only be used in the case of a medical emergency. now, the american college for obstetrics and gynecology referred to as evidence-based -- that form of treatment as evidence-based and medically preferred because they write that it results in the fewest complications for women compared to alternative procedures. how would a restriction like
6:43 am
that affect a doctor's ability to provide care when you can only do dilation and evacuation methods when it is deemed a medical emergency? >> yeah. i mean, there's no line in medicine between the health and life of a patient. and with these abortion bans, with these exceptions, you're asking physicians to interpret these moments and restraining from offering all the options that we not are evidence-based. that's incredibly dangerous. layered on top of that are the fears of prosecution, which happened to our colleague in indiana just last week. so, you are asking for interpretation of these laws on the ground and that is incredibly, incredibly dangerous for our patients. >> dr. wilkinson, thank you for your time very much this morning. >> thanks so much for having me. ahead, the fbi is investigating chinese-made equipment near military bases and its ability to potentially

one of two americans who recently died in ukraine's donbas region has been identified. his mother says she was informed of her son's death by the state department. officials did confirm over the weekend that two americans died there but did not provide any details or the circumstance around their deaths. the state department says it is providing assistance to the families. our thoughts with this them this morning. the united states is working with ukraine on a plan b to try to get all of that grain out of
6:49 am
ukraine after an attack on the key port city of odesa. the war has trapped millions of tons of grain in ukrainian ports exacerbating a global food crisis. on friday, though, russia, ukraine and turkey, as the mediator there, and united nations signed a deal to restart exporting all of that grain from ukraine. now ukraine officials say the deal is at risk after these bombings one day later. russia acknowledged the attack but says it struck legitimate military targets and infrastructure targets. let's begin with former ukrainian president president poroshenko. thank you for your time this morning. i wonder your reaction. we also just got this headline from sergey lavrov, the foreign minister in russia says, look, this deal does not exclude these ports, and it is legitimate for russia to strike what they are deeming to be military targets, like they're saying they struck in the port of odesa. what is your reaction to that?
6:50 am
>> in the long five years of my experience, how to negotiate with russia and with putin i have to advise how this point number one -- don't trust putin. and point number two, don't be afraid of putin. and with that situation, this is -- we definitely should know and count that putin signing up this type of agreement only for lifting the sanctions for the export of grain, fertilizer, and to improve his financial situation, and to break his isolation. and i think this is the exactly right thing to do now. this is the plan b. because under plan b, we need to stop all ration exports, to stop all the commercial vessels that
6:51 am
are exporting russian goods. so we need to understand if we want to win of russia, there would be no energy, no russian oil, no russian gas, no russian -- any type of resources. and with this situation, that would be successful. because paper, which signed by russia, was no paper there written on. and plan b is the only key way out. >> so you're talking about a plan b that is not a reality right now, and i don't know that it will become one given europe's reliance on russia for energy. let me talk about plan b that the secretary of state talked about, given this attack on odesa, a day after the agreement was signed. the world food program estimate
6:52 am
47 million people are in a state of hunger because of the war in ukraine. 49 million people are at risk of famine as a result. so do you think that a plan b should include, for example, western allies send naval vessels to ensure the free flow of grain from the black sea ports? you have russia saying turkey is going to accompany this, but is that enough? >> it can work only if russia would understand their responsibility. if they violate the way how to export russian grain and how to save the life -- can you imagine, 50 million people around the globe. and this is the russian strategy, this is the putin strategy, to weaponize food and energy, to weaponize oil. and we need to understand the world will they have be again
6:53 am
like before 2014 or before the 24th of february this year. with that situation, we should be united, create an anti-putin coalition and take decisive action who can stop putin. and what -- it should be the complex steps, not only the need to export vessels, not only to stop and arrest russian commercial, but also more himars. i just returned back from the frontline. i just was there where the american citizen was killed. with that situation,d very positive news about using the ukrainian troops the himars. this is the game changer. this is extremely good accuracy and efficient, and we snead to do the operational, which is happening earlier this year.
6:54 am
and i think this is the great breakthrough. and if we receive just a little bit more himars, just an anti-aircraft missiles, just to continue the training of ukrainian pilots on f-16 or american jet fighters and bombers, that is their demonstration to putin, this is a dead end. you please out from ukraine your troops and stay there. otherwise, the world answer will be very efficient. >> you were born near ukraine's border with moldova. and yet, my colleague, fareed zakaria, spoke with the prime minister of moldova. for people who aren't aware, you have russian backed breakaway areas and russian forces are still based there. he asked her what the threat from russia to moldova is.
6:55 am
this is what she said. >> this is a very difficult position, not just for moldmold but any small country. if a country can start an annexation war without any regard for, you know, international law, then in this sense, nobody is safe. >> do you share her concern that nobody is safe? >> first message, nobody is safe in the world, because this is the war not against ukraine. this is the war against the whole civilized world. me as a commander in chief for the five years of the -- of russian aggression against ukraine, i know exactly that it's possible to save moldova or other neighbor states, only ukraine, which would be equipped, which would be

prepared, and please help us to do -- to save you, to do your job. and with that situation, i am very much appreciate the great leadership of the united states, of the united states president, congress, united states people, and we need to stop putin here in ukraine, because to stop him in moldova, in baltic states, in poland, that would be significantly more bloody and much more complicated. >> former president of ukraine, thank you for your time and for telling us what you saw just coming back from the frontlines. >> it's a pleasure, thank you. today, the governor of georgia will testify in that state's investigation into former president trump's atechlts to overturn the 2020 election. details on that, next. phone loo?
