crime. they are going to find him and bring him to justice. >> and a young girl playing at a nearby playground says she thought the gunshots were fireworks. >> i realized, oh, no, this is serious, and there was a gunshot. they really frightened me because i was right there at the park playing, and i would never have thought ever that this would've happened. >> in new york city, total crime has surged 38% since last year at this time. grand larceny is up 50% and robbery up 40%. that's just to name a few, according to the nypd. the boyle president, "we cannot simply allow this epidemic of gun violence to continue." as a last check, the killer is still on the list. back to you guys. >> carley: let us escape really don't have a motive or no if it was targeted but what an

absolute tragedy. thank you. a memorial service for two file in el monte police officers is set for later today as a new report reveals the probation officer hadn't seen him in at least six months. this comes at 37 los angeles county cities have now issued a vote of no confidence in district attorney george gascon. >> joey: joining us now is rachael hart, who was hit by a car while pushing her baby in a stroller. she's now calling for gascon to be recalled. good morning. >> hi. good morning. how are you? >> joey: we come here this morning with new tragic news, a mother shot and killed here in new york, and how we look at gascon and some of the things that have happened there. l.a. county is not a good place. are you intimately involved with this we call yourself? >> you know, i wasn't initially, but i am now. if you go to the website for the
1:04 am
recall campaign, the first thing you see is a video of me popping up telling you to sign the recall petition and how to do that and turn it in. there's a memorial service for the two el monte police officers later today, and the parents of one of the officers, they joined us earlier this month. take a look at what they had to say. >> he needs to give his job to somebody who is going to -- how many more lives to have to lose before something is done? >> gascon needs to be recalled immediately. he has destroyed so many lives and completely destroyed hours. >> and the killer was a known gang member who should have been in jail for being a felon in possession of a gun, but because of gascon's soft on crime policies we are now learning that the probation office hadn't seen this guy in six months.
1:05 am
the oversight is absolutely infuriating. >> it's devastating. if this guy continues to stay in office, unfortunately even if we get the signatures we need for the petition to get him on the ballot in november he is still our d.a. until november. this is going to continue to happen. the guy that hit me and my child was out on probation at the time. all of these problems start from the top down. the probation officer certainly made a lot of mistakes, it sound like, but had it not been for gascon's soft-on-crime policies this guy would be behind bars by now. >> joey: you have a personal reason to be upset about this. the rest of visit you and your family and baby. where are the residents of your area and the residents of l.a. who have to deal with this every day? do they feel like this is something they are intimately
1:06 am
afflicted by? is crime really rampant in every neighborhood or do you have to be personally affected understand it? >> i think the crime is rampant in every neighborhood, but at least for me it was a huge learning experience. i didn't understand that the d.a. can have such a negative or positive impact on the entire county. los angeles is an enormous county and everybody is being impacted by this and it's really hard to wrap your head around the fact that one person can be responsible for so much disaster. like i said, from the top down, he is the ultimate party who is responsible for all of this. speech he would happen to you is horrifying. you've been such incredible advocate for the injustice that youth faced. what happened was you were walking down the street pushing your baby stroller, and we are playing the footage right now, which is horrifying to see.
1:07 am
this teenager was going the wrong way and a stolen car and you say you made eye contact dominic eye with him and he veered into on purpose. what was your reaction to that? >> i was infuriated. i still m. we were told by the detective not to expect anything to happen, we are told by police officers. i spoke to one of the deputy district attorneys who guided guided me through this process because i didn't know what to expect. he said, "unfortunately, don't expect anything to happen." and i thought maybe he would get five years. five months is what he got. >> joey: back to your personal story, watching that video makes me mad and upset all at the same time to see something like that.
1:08 am
in my mind, that is attempted murder. when you look at how this young man was charged, was that ever even on the docket? was that proposed that intent would be charged? >> in a normal situation, that would totally be on the docket. with george gascon, absolutely not. you can't charge a minor with a felony offense -- i'm sorry, a strike offense. so the toughest charges we are able to bring against him, mind you, i had to fight for these charges. we told he would be charged with one count of felony hit-and-run and because he met with the juvenile d.a. and pushed hard for the toughest charges possible we were given two counts of assault with intention to harm and one felony hit-and-run. >> carley: we are so glad that you are okay, and your baby is okay. thank god. but this is such an injustice
1:09 am
that you faced and we thank you so much for waking up early this morning. this clearly means a lot to you and for good reason. thank you. >> thank you for having me. and please sign the petition to recall george gascon. >> carley: absolutely. the recall effort will likely appear on the november ballot, but they are still collecting signatures, so that's important to get in. thank you so much. >> joey: let's turn to this. testimony from the january 6th committee's surprise witness on tuesdays being called even further into question. >> carley: the secret service is refuting cassidy hutchinson's allegations against former president trump and is calling out the panel saying they were not consulted before her claims were aired. the latest details. good morning. >> good morning, guys. the secret service is the january 6th committee did not reach out before moving forward with tuesday's testimony by former trump white house aide

hank cassidy hutchinson. she claimed he launched at an agent and tried to grab the steering wheel of the presidential vehicle in order to steer it to the capitol engineer six. a spokesperson telling politico, "we are not asked to reappear before the committee in response to yesterday's new information and we plan on formally responding on the record. we have and will continue to make any member available. we want to do so again in public," but she says she stands by her testimony despite criticism. "because of this courageous woman and those like her, your attempts to hide the truth from the american people will fail." this after she admitted it most of what you told the committee are second and third-hand accounts and in some cases drawn from conversations she had only overheard. kevin mccarthy says the left is
1:11 am
hell-bent to take trump down at any cost. listen. >> remember who they hired to put this on: an abc producer. they are obsessed with trump and this is all they want to do. but this hearsay would never be allowed in a court of law. >> former president trump also responded to these claims on his social saying he has no memory of even working with her. carley, joey? >> carley: let's get to the media reaction to this. ari fleischer says the media is in the bag for democrats. watch. >> it staggers me to see how the american press corps is from venus and the american people are from mars. when you look at the press corps and a lot of the democrats on capitol hill, almost all of them, they think the entire election is about january 6th. they think the entire election is the american people have risen up in favor of roe v. wade instead of being equally divided about roe v. wade. they are so out of touch with the american people. they think everyone is glued to their tvs watching these january 6th hearings and they

1:13 am
meantime, vice president kamala harris is sounding off accusing the governor of politicizing the tragedy. >> the governor of that state's response really of the problem, because his response, where there are 50 bodies in his state, is to go straight to politics instead of dealing with the realities of the issue. >> but governor abbott is firing right back, accusing the vice president and so-called border czar of not doing her job. >> i forgot she was the board to czar while she and joe biden twirled her thumbs and do absolutely nothing to solve this catastrophe that took place just this week. speak of the political debate not likely to end anytime soon especially as federal prosecutors move forward with their case against the driver. investigators are charging him with smuggling resulting in death. the texas native is scheduled for his first court appearance

1:15 am
biden. >> joe biden is america's washed up boyfriend. every hot-blooded lib with a pulse is flirting with the white house right in front of him. it's only been 16 months into joe biden's presidency and other democrats are openly workshopping presidential runs. i've never seen this before. we are not even at the midterms yet. >> i can't get it out of my mind, having been in this position for the night before, writing air force one back and forth, it's this moment when mayor pete, david air force 2, kamala harris' plain. she's the next in line, the heir apparent, and he is asked by the press corps, "are you going to run into any 24 guilmette" and rather than saying the present will run, he said it's 2021 and the whole point of campaigns in elections is eager to govern. it's her michael. but this goes back to last year. >> carley: kevin mccarthy making this promise that he finds himself back in charge of
1:16 am
the house after the midterms. >> i promise you this -- when i am speaker, he will not be on the intel committee anymore. you know what else? eric swalwell outcome either. i don't know if this is a high bar but these relations with a chinese spy, he shouldn't be allowed to be on intel committee. we are going to raise the bar. >> we may remember that eric swalwell sent shock waves through washington when it was reported he had a personal relationship with a suspected chinese spy. republicans immediately demanded speaker pelosi remove him from his committee assignment. and also going after condiment adam schiff after one of his former staffers allowed late-night comedian stephen colbert's crew to trespass on capitol hill. he also played a big role in president trump's impeachment trial. >> joey: supreme court justice stephen breyer set to officially retire at noon eastern time today after announcing his intent to step down in january. he reflects on his time on the court in a letter to

1:18 am
back in 2020 about that day. >> they sacrificed their lives. i keep saying over and over, why me? this medal represents them. >> joey: corporal williams will lie in state in the west virginia capitol rotunda on saturday. he'll be laid to rest on sunday. >> carley: what an incredible life you lead. i got a chance to interview him during the medal of honor event in florida. what a special man, and he will certainly be missed. >> joey: oorah, as we say. a violent brawl breaking out at sea. we will tell you what set off this massive site on a cruise ship. >> carley: that is not good. and chaos in the air as well is hundreds of more flights are canceled ahead of the busy holiday weekend. now washington is stepping in.

all of this instead of having more cops on the street as crime surges. what is your take on that? >> remember, the concept of defunding the police depends on the idea that money can be spent on alternatives that will reduce crime. but that's not what we are seeing and it's not something that can be done in the midst of a crime wave and a time of great unease. when you look at the data coming in, these been a major increase in crimes reported, which, by the way, are incredibly heinous crimes. murder and aggravated assault. >> joey: when we talk about the crime there in l.a. county, i would imagine republicans are going to win any time soon. as they hope to correct this? we had someone on earlier this morning who was ran over, her and her baby. is there an opportunity to get policies in that will change this? >> what this really is, another attack and attempt to defend
