5:31 pm
here's the details from washington. >> reporter: day two of the january 6th hearing focusing on donald trump's efforts to spread false information to overturn the 2020 election. >> millions of americans believed him. >> reporter: the committee today laying out a case that trump planted the seeds of fraud before election day and declared victory afterwards. >> the only way we're going to lose this election is if the election is rigged. remember that. >> frankly, we did win this election. >> reporter: fired fox news journalist who worked on the fox political desk during the night they called the election in arizona for trump described it this way. >> you're better off playing the powerball. >> reporter: the committee illustrating that despite advisor after advisor telling trump there was no widespread fraud, he continued to push the false claims. >> you can press a button for
5:32 pm
trump and it goes to biden. >> he said dead people are voting. indians are being paid to vote. we told him flat out much of the information he's getting is false. >> reporter: former attorney general bill barr debunking trump's claims including that dominion voting machines were rigged. >> he's detached from reality if he really believes this stuff. >> reporter: trump ignoring all but his then attorney rudy giuliani. >> they're bringing in thousands of ballots in garbage cans, in waste paper baskets and shopping baskets. >> reporter: the committee trying to prove the former president pushed a false narrative the remain in office and convince his followers they must fight to keep him there. while the committee claims there's ample evidence, there's undetermined if criminal charges will be brought against the former president. in washington, nbc news. >> so what's next here and who's actually paying
5:33 pm
attention to this? we bring in our political analyst larry. what are the key take aways from your mind today? >> the tapes of barr were not flattering to the president. remember, barr said at one time the president seemed totally detached from reality. the fox editor was very impressive because he talked about how arizona went ahead and called the election, and i think we can use that almost as a prototype for other states, which is very important if you're trying to discount the idea that the election was stolen by biden and the democrats. and finally, i think what's interesting at the end, was that the trump defense fund that was mentioned briefly, $250 million in that fund, and by the way, there's no accountability. trump and his people can use it for whatever they want. it does not have to go to fighting the election results or anything else. that's a lot of money to be going around and more still comes in all with this election is rigged type of stuff. >> yeah, three big take aways. we can talk all about this
5:34 pm
testimony, but if fox news and other conservative news outlets are not reporting or following the hearings, how do the truth and details get out? >> that's a good question. fox has its followers, and we know that almost all the followers who watch fox voted for donald trump and i'm not sure you'll ever get some of those folks because they're very dedicated. this is what they believe, and nothing is going to convince them otherwise. the question is beyond that, can you get the republicans who don't watch that? get them to understand. that's what this is all about. get the independents to understand what's going on. and you know, if the committee can let people at least see the facts, that's what's most important here. >> a bay area congresswoman was front and center today. is this her sweet spot and why
5:35 pm
she's on the january 6th committee? >> she has more experience in impeachment, and this is kind of related to impeachment, than any other member of congress. she was a staffer for watergate, a congresswoman for the clinton administration and two times with trump. no one has as much experience as lofgren, and she demonstrated the kinds of questions she asks and digging she did, she was digging for information people sometimes aren't willing to. >> they have five more scheduled meetings. can they win this case, and i don't know what win means here. what's the end game? >> well, win of course would be the hearts of the american people, to have them understand. we're not getting them to fry and vote differently. we want them to understand. but let me me give you one comparison to watergate.
5:36 pm
watergate had 237 hours of hearings. the committee met over 11 weeks. here we're talking about seven hearings, 14 hours, over 83 weeks. this is a big heel for these people to climb on what folks say is a much bigger problem, much more serious problem than we had in watergate. whether they can turn it in a short time remains to be seen. >> thank you for your time and analysis this evening. frame work for stricter gun safety laws is what senators from both parties decided on this weekend. it was enhance background checks for gun buyers 18 to 21 years old. the senators also agreed to help states take guns away from people deemed a threat, close a loophole that allowed some domestic abusers to buy guns despite a violent past, and provide money for school security and mental health. >> it is a substantial compromise that's going to stop a lot of suicides, a lot
5:37 pm
of homicides, and save a lot of lives in this country. >> undoubtedly there will be some further tweaks. we're continuing to meet. >> ten republican senators have signed on to the bipartisan compromise. a positive sign that it could get the 60 votes needed to become law. senators are pushing to vote on the bill in the next couple of weeks and get it to the president's desk by the end of july. today a scary scene at a summer camp in duncanville, texas. this is in the dallas-fort worth area. reports of an armed man at an indoor sports facility. when police arrived, they shot and killed the gunman. none of the 150 children, staff, or officers were injured thankfully. police have not yet revealed the name of the suspect or why he was carrying a gun at the facility. making it easier for teachers to carry guns in schools is the new law of the land in ohio. weeks after the massacre in texas, ohio's governor made a change.
5:38 pm
a new bill drastically reduces the amount of training teachers and staff need before they can have a firearm on school grounds. instead of 700 hours of training, they need 24. >> i'm directing the school safety center to require the maximum number of hours provided by the legislature which is 24. >> the measure also calls for eight hours of prequalification training, active shooter training, and first aid care. the teacher union and gun safety groups oppose the new law. from bad to worse, you probably know by now a rough day for the stock market. the s&p 500 fell nearly 4%, which is a new low for this year. the market is now down more than 20% from its all time high set in january. this comes amidst growing concerns of a recession and ahead of a federal reserve meeting this wednesday. the fed is expected to hike
5:39 pm
interest rates by a half percentage point. also rough for cryptocurrency. bit coin fell as much as 17%, wiping out $250 million across the market. they haven't seen their value this low since 2020. a budgeting nightmare in the bay. soaring gas prices got higher overnight. there was a gallon of gas for $7.15, above the state average of $6.43. to put things in perspective, a year ago it was $4.22. a lot of drivers say they're making changes in their daily routine like incorporating public transit. >> it's making me think about taking bart three days a week. there's a station right up the street that's within easy walking distance. >> some things you can try, use a gas finding app, pay with a gas credit card, and
5:40 pm
plot the most efficient route to your desantis in addition. locally and nationally we know hate crimes against asian-americans have been a big issue during the pandemic. today president biden signed a bill hoping to bring more support and celebration for asian culture. the bill would create a brand new museum, the national museum of asian-american history and culture. he hopes it inspires asian-americans to be more connected to this country's history. >> more than anything else, this will help people see themselves in the story of america, the story that makes us a better america and made us a better america. that's why it's so important to me that this administration looks like america. >> vice president harris was there and discussed her own asian-american background. her mother was born in india. she discussed the challenges facing asian-americans today. actress amber heard is opening up about the verdict in her defamation trial.
5:41 pm
tomorrow on the today show, she'll sit down with savannah guthrie. >> so you don't blame the jury? >> i don't blame him. i actually understand. he's a beloved character. and people feel they know him. he's a fantastic actor. >> the job is to not be dazzle by that. their job is to look at the facts and the evidence, and they did not believe your testimony or evidence. >> again, how could they after listening to three and a half weeks of testimony about how i was an uncredible person? >> hear more of the interview with heard tomorrow and on wednesday on the today show. well, we know the high cost of living here in the bay area. up next, another red hot expensive real estate market on the east coast, and how it's leaving people like here feeling priced out.
