hello and welcome to "inside politics." i'm john king in washington. thank you for sharing your day with us. deadly deja vu. for the second time this week gun violence infects another american town. this time chesapeake, virginia, and a walmart packed with thanksgiving shoppers. >> it is just a horrendous event. our hearts are just completely broken this morning yet again in the commonwealth of virginia. it's a horrendous senseless act of violence and today we have to come around families and support them. >> plus, count them up. a miserable day for donald trump's legal team ends with a supreme court loss and allowed a signal that the mar-a-lago case
may not break in the former president's favor. a big flip-flop puts a threat to impeach the homeland security secretary on the table. republicans take control in 41 days and attacking more to the right because he still lacks the votes to become speaker. up first, an american flag and a shooter shatters six families. bullets interrupted the normal routine of picking up stuffing and employees shuffling off and on the floor. this hour six are dead. four of the victims are hospitalized, their conditions unknown. police giving few details so far. the gunman, a walmart employee, entered a break room and opened fire with a pistol. a source says that individual was a manager at the store and overnight listen to a witness describe from calm to chaos. >> i'm talking about just left
out the break room. come in there, started capping people up in the -- started shooting. bro. i'm whole but sadly we lost a few of our associates. pretty much came in here and started dumping. he went in there, man. by the grace of god, you know, man, i don't know. >> police say they arrived on the scene within two minutes of the first call to 911. by the time they got there, the gunman had turned the weapon on himself. police cautioned they're piecing together what happened will take time. just processing the crime scene will take days. we do not know the motive. let's get straight to the scene and brian todd is there live for us. what else do we know? >> reporter: well, john, we can confirm from a source familiar with the situation that the shooter was an overnight manager at the store. i think you mentioned he was a team lead. there is a woman whose is a
survivor, briana tyler and told abc news this was a manager she had been told, quote, look out for because there was always something going on with him just having an issue with someone, end quote. briana tyler gathered with co-workers in a break room on tuesday night for their shift, that she looked up and her manager opened the door. at that point they saw the shooter opening fire, he wasn't aiming at anyone specifically according to her and did not say anything as he moved around the room shooting at people. quote, he looked directly at me but luckily he missed my head by an inch or two telling abc news this was a manager that she was told to look out for because there was always an issue with him. police filled in a couple of other gaps, police saying that this shooter used a pistol in this attack. not aware of any other weapons that he used. the time frame from when first 911 calls came out at
10:12:00 p.m. eastern time to the time police entered the building, four minutes, entered at 10:16 p.m. eastern time and secured the building as safe at 11:20 but can tell you in the overnight hours police were taking a long time to get information to reporters because they were still combing through this building for hours looking for anyone who might be a survivor, anyone who might be hiding, a lot of places to hide in a walmart and had to take several hours to process this scene, john. >> brian todd, appreciate the on the scene reporting. joining me the former homeland security official juliet chyme. juliet, let's listen more to briana tyler. >> yeah, he just started shooting throughout the entire break room and i watched multiple people just drop down to the floor, whether they were trying to duck for cover or they were hit.
he just opened fire. he looked directly at me but he luckily miss the my head by like an inch or two. he just came around the corner and he just started shooting. the first person in his eyesight he shot him down and then next thing you know he started ringing throughout the entire break room and did not say a word. >> what are the questions at this moment from an inves investigative standpoint? clearly motive but the other thing that strikes me the jaweed at the top of the show and witness speaking in almost matter of fact tones about this. as if it's something they talk about all the time. >> right. i mean, it is part of our culture and a part of people who are in their 20s and 30s. we don't call them generation lockdown for nothing. the 20-year-olds like the woman or the people in the room looked like talking to, 20 and 30,
they're used to -- a generation used to the idea of mass shootings in a way that i think people in their 40s and 50s are not talked like that and also in shock so i think their description may seem offputting but it may be they haven't processed what they were close to. it is narrowing, the investigation. we didn't know what it was and walmarts are large. it now appears that they -- he's known, the reason why he was at the store is known. maybe we don't know the trigger but we know the weapon and the victims are an isolated group, unfortunately, so the investigation will mostly and you have a dead killer so no trial. so the investigation mostly will go to motive at that particular moment, what issues he was going
through and then also what kind of supervisors knew him. that will be investigated as well. >> you watch them play out and, again, i can't find the right word for this, i get depressed every time you do one of these stories, and sometimes you think you do so many you would learn to blaze through it. a graphic. 20 mass shootings involving casualties of five or more fatalities across the country, there have been 600 plus mass shootings in 2022. save me the thoughts and prayers we need to do more -- >> a lot of us did not rest well and will not until we get a handle on this gun violence. for all the people who are saying that their hearts and prayers go out to these people. i don't want to hear anymore about that until they get serious about gun violence
prevention. >> in this case the congress is not poised to do anything at the moment. in the case of a semi assault weapon you have one conversation. this is someone who worked there walking in with a pistol as you heard one of the witnesses saying a manager she's been told to watch out for so anger issues of some kind. anything here from a legislative standpoint, anything that can be done? >> well, the difficult policy issue is whether or not the country or individual states want to try to restrict access to weapons from a law enforcement homeland security perspective it's about trying to identify whether there are warning signs and having family and friends bring that to law enforcement and virginia state police want people to bring individuals to them and bring warnings so that law enforcement potentially can have a better idea of how to prevent it but, at the center for american security we did a survey of a focused group of cross section of americans to try to figure out what are people most afraid of.
mass shootings by far top the list. when we were looking at the timing of when could we actually do this survey we thought, well, there was just the -- we did it last summer. there was just the buffalo shooting and then we looked at, well, what if we waited a couple weeks and would have run into highland park and chicago and this happens constantly in america. >> happens constantly in happen. juliette, carrie mentioned buffalo, that was a supermarket. this is a walmart. among the softer targets especially in the holiday season, employees going in and out, people going in and out and someone carrying a pistol, easy to conceal. >> yes, i mean, look, there is no society that you and i want to live in where you can be safe, right, because -- what would that mean? it means your experience going to the store or walking down the street would be so fortified it's not even worth it anymore so the idea that we can get -- that we can defend our way into
the solution is ridiculous at this stage. this is a walmart. i don't know what kind of security they have at the door but it was an inside threat. you won't be able to stop a manager hell bent on wanting to kill employees so we will continue to have a never ending conversation about gun control but i think carrie and i are also reflecting on a sort of, you know, i think we have to admit it that without that gun legislation, it is going to take a stepping up by community members, family members about whether someone in their midst is a threat. they have got to consider the rest of the community and not wish it away. this is where we are now in the absence of control over gun and gun usage and responsible gun ownership at this stage. >> right. again, another mass shooting. more than 600 this year. hopefully this conversation is due, tough time to have around
thanksgiving. they'll be back this a few moments. moving on and learning about the troubled past of the suspect who opened fire inside an lgbtq plus colorado springs nightclub killing five people. next hour the suspected shooter anderson lee aldrich will make an appearance and rosa flores is covering it for us. what else do we know? >> reporter: john, we just learned from the court that cameras will not be allowed inside the court but there will be a live stream which means that this will be the first time that we will be able to see the suspect as he was beaten and subdued by those heroes who stopped the carnage. this is a first appearance. here's what will happen. a judge will inform the defendant of his legal rights and then the charges will be read as they are in the charging documents. now, we're expecting these will include five counts of first degree murder and five counts of hate crimes. now, this is not an arraignment.
those are not the formal charges. they could be presented next week or the week after that. we also know that the suspect is being held without bond. all this as we're learning more about his troubled past. now, all of this is -- has been digging, done by cnn investigates, a lot of our producers working hard on this. i'll go in chronological order and bear with me. i'll start with the mother and father of the suspect's mom has multiple charges in her past that include falsely reporting a crime, dui, the suspect's father was a porn actor then mma fighter and was out of the picture which left the grandmother to raise this child. by the time the suspect was 15 there were online records that show vicious, vicious bullying of the suspect and before he turned 16, there was a name change from nicholas f. brink to anderson lee aldrich and in 2021 there's that report, john, that we've been talking about, the
mother of the suspect calling police about her son having weapons and ammunition and a homemade bomb. those charges were dropped and now last thing we learned the suspect identifies as nonbinary, john. >> rosa flores on the ground for us in colorado springs. we await that later. up next for us one day, four different courtrooms with cases involving donald trump. showcasing the major legal challenges he's facing a week after announcing, yes, he's running for president again. pool partities... tailgates... holiday parties... even retirement parties. man, i love parties. subway keeps refreshing and refreshing this is what real food looks like fresh real meat and veggies. the food dogs where built to eat. the farmer's dog is changing the way weeed our pets. visitryfarmersdog.com to see your dogs personalized meal plan.

plus, a state judge in new york set a trial date for the new york attorney general's suit scheduled for october of 2023. just in time for the presidential election. and there's more. senator lindsey graham was forced to testify before the special georgia grand jury investigating trump's effort to reverse the 2020 results there and the former trump chief of staff mark meadows lost a bid. with me to sort through it are evan perez and carrie cordero and also joining us is caitlin polantz. where to begin. let's start with the taxes debate. trump has fought for years. he kept saying he would release. he has fought to keep them private. the house has them and in the trump organization trial under way in new york right now, the testimony said that he didn't
pay personal income taxes for a long stretch of time. what is the significance of that? the democrats lose the house in 41 days. does it matter they have these documents now? >> they have a short period of time in which to tri to say what they think this means as far as legislation is concerned. that's what they said this was about, right? they wanted to look at possible legislation on auditing by the irs and it does raise questions, right, of why this has been -- what the former president says, there has been this long-running audit but learned from that testimony yesterday that going back to 2010 and years afterwards he was claiming these huge number -- sums of losses which meant that he didn't pay -- he wasn't paying taxes on those numbers. and that has become -- that's going to be a big part of what letitia james is going, essentially he was fudging
numbers to avoid paying taxes. >> this also gives you a little finality of the long arc of house power. the house is getting tax returns after pursuing them for three years in court. and you're also seeing the end of this house select committee particularly powerful investigating their own body, an attack on their own body. for them to get stuff right in the nick of time really underlines the power of congress. >> the other case, one of the other cases, mar-a-lago documents and the idea the hearing, the three judges in the 11th circuit, do you need a special master? is that necessary? what is the significance if they say no? >> the significance of this case goes far beyond this particular search and that's why i think the justice department is pushing so hard to get an appel yacht court to throw out the special master because at its core, any individual who was the subject of investigation who is the subject of a physical search that the fbi conducts person to a warrant obtained on a probable
cause from a federal judge which is what happened in this case, each individual who is in that situation across the country does not get a special master appointed to their case to review the documents and that's the arguments the justice department is making is that in this case the judge ordered the special master, gave former president trump basically a special privilege, treated him differently than anybody else would be treated and the justice department needs to think about all the other national security investigations and regular criminal investigations where they don't want that precedent set and that's why i think also the 11th circuit is open to these arguments that the justice department is making. >> the chief judge says because donald trump has former president before his name, other than the fact this involves a former president everything else about this is indistinguishable. we've got to be concerned about the precedent that we would create. that's to carrie's point that, you know, if they come to my house and serve a legal search warrant can i tie up the system for months and months fighting? >> by the way, when he was
president, that's exactly what he was able to do. he was successful in being able to do that and that was a big theme of the hearing yesterday. the two judges who previously ruled against him and even the judge that we were watching -- >> in two of the three are trump appointees. >> right, exactly but what was a big theme was trump's legal team kept saying they didn't want special treatment but that's exactly what he's looking for and what the judge in florida gave him and so that's the reason why i think you heard a lot of skepticism from these three judges yesterday saying, you know, you're not special. you know, after all and so you can't expect that you're going to be treated differently and especially because you're the one that commingled classified documents were personal items so that's not the government's fault. >> another person who fought and fought and fought, you'll notice the theme, to try to refuse testifying was lindsey graham who did have to testify in fulton county, georgia. we know from the former secretary of state, the current
one, brad raffensperger got a call, we know about the call from donald trump. can we find 11,000 votes and change. he says he got a call from lind i graham, listen. >> an implication that, look hard and see how many ballots you could throw out. >> so how important is this testimony in the, okay, lindsey graham made the call, that's well documented. wouldn't the question before the grand jury be who asked you to make that call? >> we don't know know what lindsey graham answered. there's lots of ways he was able to decline to answer questions and he was already set up by the supreme court. they said, you know, we're not going to block your testimony in full. you do have to show up but he can still come back to court if he wants to. the georgia grand jury can take him to court and try to litigate these things. it takes time to work that out especially with people in protected positions, elected officials where speech or debate clause, sorry, related to
congress would apply around them. but graham is in a different position than trump, right? trg issues, go to the supreme court in their last rounds, that he's getting some sort of finality now. there is a force field that's falling around them. people are testifying, so even if graham doesn't give answers, there may be others who would be able to fill in the blanks that graham is unwilling to answer to. >> and i think, you know, the other takeaway from this is that a sitting senator testified pursuant to legal possess after exhausting his legal remedies and the sky didn't fall. what we're seeing whether it comes to the 11th circuit looking at other cases or the release of the tax records or whether it comes to the fact that the senator finally did give testimony and answer questions is that some of the other institutions and the court in particular are holding them up. >> patience is a virtue, i guess that's it. >> something like that. >> but it works. all right. up next marjorie taylor greene leaning in for her pick of speaker of the house. will it be kevin mccarthy?

will investigate every order, every action and every failure will determine whether we can begin impeachment inquiry. >> that, what you just heard there, a big shift in tone for mccarthy who finds himself short of the votes to be speaker 41 days from when the new congress convenes. secretary mayorkas has no plans to resign and saying, quote, members of congress should come to the table and work on solutions. here in studio to share the reporting, cnn's maeve reston, toluse olorunnipa and you heard kevin there. he wants to be speaker. he wants votes. quite a different tone than what you told you a month ago when he said this, i think the country wants to heal. if you spent all too time arguing against using impeachment for political purposes you got to be able to sustain exactly what you said. his point was, republicans criticize the democrats for impeaching trump. they weren't going to do that. i think the country wants to
heal. what happened? >> well, i think he realized he didn't have the votes to be speaker. he has a math problem. republicans will go into the majority with a four-vote majority and right now he's got at least half a dozen republicans who said i'm a hard no or leaning against voting for him and that doesn't mean everyone else will vote for him either on the republican side, so he's doing everything he can right now to woo some of these conservatives that think he won't be hard enough on the biden administration. >> here's five of them. you mentioned his math them. congressman ralph northam, matt rosendale have said they won't vote for kevin mccarthy. a friend of theirs is marjorie taylor greene who has been a mccarthy critic who tweeted this, video of the border visit saying this should give conservatives a glimpse of the kind of speaker kevin mccarthy will be and why i'm supporting
him. he is requiring mayorkas to resign or face investigations leading to impeachment. more things like this to come. >> it shows you exactly what the republican party's problem is is that really what people were voting for out in the country and what they wanted them to be focusing all of their time on so it's such a good example of how, you know, this very small amount of people can continue dragging the party to the right along pursuits that don't aggress what the concerns are of the voters on inflation and all the things that led them to vote for republicans in the first place. >> and yet before you jump in just if we could show those five again, these are five people who would support aggressive oversight even investigations moving on to impeachment, ralph norman is on the left of your screen. this is why he says he just can't do it when it comes to
kevin mccarthy. >> i'm not going to support kevin mccarthy. andy biggs is knowledgeable and there are a growing number who have lost faith in that mccarthy could do the job. >> and so that's where mccarthy sees the worry. to maeve's point, any possibility that a group of more centrists or pragmatists emerge and say we'll withhold the votes too. we don't want so many investigations because we don't think that's what the american people want. >> incredibly difficult to they would this caucus together. districts are freshmen and want to stay in congress and show he can work across the aisle and do not want to be focused on investigations and the president's son trying to impeach people and very interesting to see the difference between what kevin mccarthy said in his language which is somewhat nuanced, we'll consider impeachment and someone
like marjorie taylor greene who interpreted kevin mccarthy's statement as we will impeach the department of homeland security secretary. so it's very clear that mccarthy will have difficulty trying to keep various wings together. >> right, and, again, as you watch this play out, we had the election. they want a much smaller majority than they thought he would win. he will have four or five votes to spare. one thing you could have heard. i'm at the border because it matters to us. we want more border security. if president biden will give us that we're willing to listen to a solution on the dreamers and a guy from central california to a guest worker program. none of that. this was not about policy at all. >> no, absolutely not. this was just a red meat play 100%. i think the irony here, though, is the argument on the far right with these hard-liners is that he is not conservative enough and mccarthy will do and say anything just to get the votes. they frankly don't trust him so look the ahis comments saying i
don't want to do impeachment for political purposes and look at what he did yesterday and they're like which mccarthy is this? so i don't know if this helps him a ton with the far right nor the moderates coming from biden districts who want to hold on to their majority in 2024 and don't want to spend time on this. >> he looks weak as he does this. same kevin mccarthy who said after january 6th donald trump bears responsibility then counted to ten and ran to mar-a-lago to say, sorry, never mind. you want to be speaker, you have to project strength, do you not? >> you should, but in a caucus this fraught with such a slim majority you have to try to bring people together and it's difficult because there's so many different personalities, so many different political constituencies represented by the republican caucus that kevin mccarthy has not yet quite been able to rally everyone around him saying they could hold it together the way nancy pelosi did with the democrats. she was able to be the one person to hold everyone
together. it's not quite clear yet that mccarthy has that level of stature within his party just yet. >> 41 days. we'll see. the issue is do they have an alternative? up next more politics. you won't want to miss this. herschel walker got a tax break by listing his texas home as a primary residence. that's the same herschel walker running for senate in georgia. the most epic sandwich roster ever crcreated. ♪ it's subway's s biggest refresh yet!
because he listed a texas home as his mrprimary residence this year. a local texas official says he took that for both 2021 and 2022. that being after launching his senate bid in georgia. walker is the republican trying to unseat senator raphael warnock in a december 6th runoff election. our great reporters are back with us. this is not hard. basic campaign 101, check the tax forms, your housing forms, everything else. he is taking a tax deduction on a primary residence in texas while running for the senate in georgia. bad. >> not good. not good, folks. in terms of the fact that this happened in 2021 and 2022 after launching his bid potentially after winning the primary, it just shows sort of the lack of vetting that is in this process on the republican side in the state of georgia in part because former president donald trump decided to give herschel walker his stamp of approval and didn't not need to be vetted as a
result and voters decided to follow trump's lead and now there are a number of republicans in georgia who are unhappy with the fact that herschel walker is their candidate. he was trailing in the original race and now we're going to a runoff and seems like a lot of the steam is running out of his campaign. we don't know what will happen when voters vote but this is not the kind of headline you want to try to motivate voters in georgia to say that you should represent them. there are already a number of georgians that say he should not be our representative. the fact that he's claiming a tax break in texas doesn't help. >> it doesn't have a lot of room forerer, 200,000 voted for brian kemp who did not vote for the senate candidate so you already have a republican enthusiasm question. if you're starting to see headlines, the guy who wants to represent you is getting a tax break for a house in texas, not helpful. >> there's a huge enthusiasm gap. i think that's only going to increase now that democrats for sure have control of the senate. i mean adding another democratic senator would help them in terms of what they're able to do but i
don't think you're going to see many republicans and independents who didn't vote for walker the first time who are incentivized to get out and vote for him this time, right? we have seen republicans try to counteract that. brian kemp is out there with leaflets. they're mailing with just his photo. walker isn't even on them saying please support herschel and cut a direct to tv ad. only tile will tell. >> that's an interesting point about what is kemp thinking in the sense that he campaigned with walker over the weekend. did not campaign at all with him before the general election and campaigned with him over the weekend and mentioned leaflets and got to deal with mitch mcconnell and the ad you mentioned right here. >> herschel walker will vote for georgia. that's why i'm backing herschel and i hope you'll join me in voting for him too. >> didn't say a peep in the normal election. now all on board in the runoff election. why? >> i mean, that's somewhat the
party has got to do to get him across the finish line at this point and to your point a moment ago i was talking to someone involved with the campaign in georgia this morning and thehe will be a huge drop-off in terms of the number of voters that turn out. we saw so many of those ticket splitters this time the kemp/warnock voters, it's really a question, i guess, that the gop is wondering whether those folks will actually be motivated to turn out. and the best case scenario for them is that, you know, the people that had an issue with walker in the first round will just potentially stay home. we don't know how big that group will be but that's kind of their best bet. >> you hear the argument from brian kemp making -- you need to vote for herschel walker to essentially check joe biden. well, two republican senators and the current senator who know they were going to spend the next two years in the minority. ted cruz and lindsey graham with walker doing a television
interview. ted cruz making a similar point. >> chuck schumer has told you, he doesn't want herschel walker to win. he doesn't want a 50/50 senate. why is that? because in a 50/50 senate the committees are even which slows him down. if raphael warnock wins, schumer can expedite confirming radical judges to take away your free speech rights, your religious liberty right, your second amendment rights. >> g.o.t. the effort. >> you're talking about intricacies, 50 versus 51 and lose a lot of seaters when you get into the weeds like that so this isn't as important if it was going to determine who is going to control the senate so there are a number of republicans who may have been able to cross over and hold their nose and vote for herschel walker if it meant control of the senate and a number of these different rights that senator cruz was talking about were more
sort of hanging in the lurch but this is going to be, you know, a democratic controlled senate no matter what and democratic committees will run them and it will lose a lot of voters and be hard to motivate people. >> the flip side if the mood among democrats become, a, we have the majority no matter what happens and, b, we have this race, so i don't have to vote. it's covered which is why obama's coming in, the former president barack obama coming in december 1st five days before the runoff and while warnock is running an aggressive tv ad questioning first on walker's character and here on whether you can trust him on anything. >> the whole country is finished voting and only us left. you think herschel walker would want to explain what he'd do in the senate if he actually wants to represent georgia. instead he repeats the same lies, trying to distract from what we all know is true about him. i think georgians will see the ads for what they are, don't you? >> whether you're a democrat or
a republican or independent, the warnock ads are catchy, they've just been effective throughout the campaign. >> they do land pretty well. people pay attention to them. i think the other thing about warnock that's interesting is he's running a very consistent message like you said, campaign stops all of this week saying the exact same thing, this race is about character, it's about competence, why would you give these powerful tools of the senate to someone who doesn't stand up for either is his message then on the other side you have herschel walker who there's just more controversials coming out, the latest being this, you know, texas residency, so i think that definitely works in democrats' favor going into this. >> the third time warnock -- fourth time he's had to run for this seat in two year, election, runoff, election -- >> he knows what he's doing. >> and it's just how on earth does herschel walker like drive a message with distraction after distraction and, you know, this latest one is different because people look at that and say, well, i don't have those
