7:05 am
copy at 14th and independence. >> as the president prepared to deliver his remarks hutchinson was backstage. trump was angry that more of the crowd wasn't being allowed into the secured area. trump demanded the secret service remove the metal detectors because he wasn't the target. >> i overheard the president say something to the effect of i don't f-ing care that they have weapons. they're not here to hurt me. take the f-ing mags away. let my people in. they can march to the capitol from here. >> the president telling the crowd he would march with him. >> i will be there with you. >> something the secret service and pat cipollone insisted trump could not do. >> mr. cipollone said something to the effect of please make sure we don't go up to the capitol, cassidy. keep in touch with me and we'll get charges of every type imaginable if we make that happen. >> the president wouldn't speak of it. hutchinson said lead secret

service agent robert engle refused saying it warrant safe. she saw ingle and deputy chief of staff ornato looking discombobulated and lost. the president said something to the effect of i'm the f-ing president take me up to the capitol now. to which bobby responded sir, we have to go back to the west wing. the president reached up towards the front of the vehicle to grab at the steering wheel, mr. engle grabbed his arm, and said sir, you need to take your hand off the steering wheel. we're going back to the west wing. we're not going to the capitol. mr. trump then used his freehand to lunge towards bobby engle and when mr. aronato he referred to his clavicles. >> it waint the first time the president exploded in rage describing the ketchup she saw dripping down the wall after
7:07 am
trump learned his attorney general bill barr had publicly rejected trump's false claims of election fraud. >> the valet had articulated that the president was extremely angry at the attorney general's a.p. interview and had thrown his lunch against the wall. >> as trump supporters reached the capitol on january 6th and violently forced their way inside, she says the chief of staff initially did nothing. >> said, hey, are you watching the tv, chief? he said, yeah. the rioters are getting really close. have you talked to the president? he said no. he wants to be alone right now. hutchinson said cipollone finally got meadows' attention. something to the effect of mark, something needs to be done or people will die and the blood will be on your f-ing hands. she said the president was unmoved even when told that his supporters were chanting to hang his own vice president mike pence. >> mark had responded something to the effect of you heard him,
7:08 am
pat. he thinks mike deserves it. he doesn't think they're doing anything wrong. >> trump sent a tweet condemning pence saying he didn't have the courage to do what was necessary. >> it was unpatriotic. it was un-american. we are watching the capitol building get defaced over a lie. >> hutchinson added that in the days after the attack mark meadows was among those seeking a presidential pardon related to january 6th. this morning we are hearing from some members from trump's inner circle who are disputing other portions of hutchinson's testimony including one of trump's former white house lawyers. as for the former president himself he responded in a flurry of online posts and also calling into question parts of this testimony. michael, it is clear donald trump is paying close attention here. >> absolutely. as expected. thank you very much, mary. let's bring in our chief justice correspondent pierre thomas. the secret service has issued a statement in response to
7:09 am
hutchinson's testimony. >> michael, good morning. that statement says agents are prepared to give sworn testimony in relation to these new allegations. two sources familiar with the investigation tells me that when president trump returned to his motorcade he requested that agents take him to the capitol. those sources told me that robert engle, one of the agents in the car saying that was unwise or dangerous and that the motorcade was going to return him to the white house. a source close to the secret service told me that trump was not happy with the agents and the agents in the car would push back against allegations of an assault by president trump and the allegation that he reached for the steering wheel. >> pierre, thank you. let's bring in our chief washington correspondent jon karl. bombshell allegations, but big picture here. what does this impact, this testimony, how does it impact the hearings going forward from here? >> well, the big question is will others come forward?
7:10 am
cassidy hutchinson was one of very few people who was right there in the west wing, steps away from the oval office, a direct witness to the extraordinary events in the white house on and around january 6th and she has done what many others have just refused to do which is to come forward under oath, live before the world to tell her story, and it is an extraordinary story of an unhinged president willing to do anything, anything to cling to power and as extraordinary as it is, it is entirely consistent with what we had already known. remember, it was around this time that we have reported that members of the trump cabinet were considering invoking the 25th amendment declaring him mentally unfit to be president. that was the portrait of a mentally unfit president that cassidy hutchinson told the world about. >> jon, in her closing remarks congresswoman liz cheney pointed to possible witness tampering.
7:11 am
>> really extraordinary stuff here. multiple witnesses, liz cheney said, were contacted by people before they came in to give their depositions, reminding them to stay in the good graces of trump world, that he reads the transcripts, remain a team player. this is mafia-like stuff, and i tell you, whit, don't be surprised if they come after cassidy hutchinson very hard and try to make her pay for what she's done. >> jon karl, our thanks to you. robin? whit, we'll move on now to the war in ukraine and we hear from the family of one of the americans captured by russian forces saying he's been in contact with the state department. our foreign correspondent james longman is there for us in ukraine. good morning, james. >> yeah. good morning, robin. more evidence is coming to light on the mall and the factory. this as one of the two u.s. veterans caught here in ukraine. the family of alex drueke has been speaking to abc news. this morning the family of alex

7:13 am
one man jumped into the water for safety. at least 20 people were killed in the attack and nearly 60 injured. 40 others are still missing. we go inside the hospital where some of the injured are being treated. meet nicolai who worked inside the mall. he tells me about the moment of the attack. it went dark and someone helped me get out. not even the hospital is safe from russia. >> another air raid siren. we'll have to leave. president zelenskyy calling the attack straight terrorisma. >> turkey has now dropped its opposition to finland and sweden applying for membership if this was about russia limiting nato's scope, but the opposite is happening. >> it sure does. michael? >> new to texas and the rising toll in the deadliest human smuggling case in u.s. history. 51 people dead after being abandoned in a tract or trailer. matt gutman has the latest. >> this morning first responders

7:15 am
>> ultimately, 51 would die in what officials call the deadliest smuggling incident in u.s. history and this morning first responders struggling to shake what they saw. >> think about what they went through when those doors closed. i think about the risk that they took. i think about the people being treated worse than animals. >> you can see this memorial behind me with candles and flowers, but also water bottles because so many of those people died from heat stroke and dehydration. the grim task begins of identifying the victims and that could take days. we are told they're from mexico, guatemala and honduras. officials are warning that with temperatures rising and the volume of migrants increasing, you can see more deadly incidents like these in the summer. michael? >> thank you so much, matt. >> whit? >> now to the lawsuits ramping up across the country in the wa wake of the landmark spupreme

court decision. our congressional correspondent rachel scott is tracking it all. rachel, good morning. >> whit, good morning to you. the biden administration says every option is on the table when it comes to protecting access to abortion including expanding access to medication abortion, but offering few specifics as the landscape quickly changes state by state. >> this morning confusion and uncertainty as the fight for abortion plays out state by state. >> right now we're anticipating that services will be able to be continued subject to the constant back and forth of litigation. >> abortion bans are being challenged in court. judges in louisiana, texas and utah allowing some abortions to resume for now. >> we will be calling back women who we had to turn away on saturday so that they can come back and get their procedure if they haven't made other arrangements. >> the patchwork of abortion access causing whiplash on both
7:17 am
sides. >> nobody believed that the fight was over, that overturning roe was an end all. >> in total, at least 13 states have now stopped nearly all abortion services, and over a dozen others are likely to take action in the coming weeks and months. we met dr. amy whitaker in illinois. this state has quickly become a safe haven for legal abortion as surrounding states move to block abortion access. >> it's been a couple of difficult days. i'm not going to sugar coat it. they've had to travel so far to get basic health care. the states with the most restrictive abortion laws have invested the least in policies and programs for women and children. >> the idea that you would make a complete abortion ban without having that investment and without having universal access to free, com prehensive, qualit prenatal care without access to funded child care to me is unacceptable. >> in the wake of roe versus
7:18 am
wade being overturned there has been an increase in demand for over the counter emergency contraceptives like plan b. we are learning that cvs and rite aid are limiting its supply. whit? >> racheling up, we'll have the latest on the deadly amtrak derailment. there have been concerns about popur poo product witing for the hidoming up, but first, let's go to ginger. >> good morning to you, michael. lake charles, louisiana, has been 15 inches below rainfall. you know it's tropical season, we have something trying to form and it's got a 40% shot of doing so, either way, it becomes heavy rain from galveston up to southwest louisiana. let's get to your local weather in 30 seconds. your accuweather,
