3:36 pm
complete misinformation. >> reporter: bar, who was silent about his concerns over tramp's false fraud allegations in the weeks after the election described the president's claims as "crazy." >> i said, boy, if he really believes this stuff, he has, you know, lost contact with -- with -- he's become detached from realtime if he really believes this stuff. >> reporter: the man expected to be the star witness today, former trump campaign manager bill stepien was a last-minute scratch when his wife went into labor. the committee showed recordings of stepien's depositions where he urged president trump not to declare victory on election night. >> it was far too early to be making any calls like that. ballots -- ballots were still being counted -- >> reporter: the president did anyway. >> frankly, we did win this election. ( cheers and applause ) >> reporter: egged on by the apparently inebriated rudy giuliani who told trump the election had been stolen from him.
3:37 pm
>> was there anyone in that conversation who, in your observation, had too much to drink? >> the mayor was definitely intoxicated. son--law said he warned th president about rudy giuliani's advice. >> how did he react? said i hadondee in reporter: mike pence who refused trump's demands he certify the ekes will have january 6th defended his >> i'll always believe i did my truth that day. >> reporter: the committee said election lies helped trump raise a quarter of a billion dollars, raised for a fund they say didn't exist. >> it was a big ripoff. >> reporter: millions would be funneled to the president's save america pac which would penned more than $200,000 on trump's hotel properties, 1 million to a foundation led by trump cheech of staff mark meadows, and 5 million to a company that helped organization the january 6th white house ellipse rally that preceded the riot. campaign records show a fraction

now to our exclusive interview. over the last five years we've committed to reporting on sexual assault and hartment within the military speaking of dozens of survivors and families of victims. real changes may oay as the secretary of the army christine wormuth told us. what is is your legacy? >> to reduce harmful behaviors. >> reporter: secretary wormuth spent last year visiting 30 bases meeting with tens of thousands of soldiers. do you still think there's a problem with sexual assault and harassment in the army? >> we do. we've got a problem in the country so i know we have it in the army. every leader at every level is focused on this, cares about it and takes the problem seriously. >> o'donnell: a new government study found reports of sexual harassment and assault in the army continue to rise. >> a lot of it, i think, is training our soldiers, many of whom are just 18 or 19 years old, about what's acceptable and
3:44 pm
what's not acceptable. when they come into our army, we need to be very clear about what's okay and what's not okay. >> o'donnell: congress passed significant military justice reform, taking prosecution of assault cases out of the chain of command. that should help with soldiers who told us they fear retaliation. >> it got to the point where i didn't just wish that i never reported, i wish i had never joined. i wish that i was dead. >> o'donnell: the reason many women and some men don't report is the fear of retaliation. >> that's right. from the u.s. army itself. i think there has been that fear and i still hear about that, when i go and visit army posts. woe are, i believe, making real strides to show our soldiers that they can trust the chain of command to look out for them. >> o'donnell: in all my reporting on this issue, this is a national security problem. we need more women in the u.s. military.
3:45 pm
>> i agree that we will be stronger in the army with more female leaders. i have watched our military leaders go in front of congress ten years ago and say we're going to fix this problem, we're going to fix this problem, so i know there's a credibility gap there but we are working on it every single day. >> o'donnell: a separate priority for the secretary is improving the quality of life thermy's 400,pa >> we did just put a newpolicyms hia. so, for example, in the very sad case of a lost pregnancy, we now provide leave for both men a women when there's been a miscarriage. we've done simple things, frankly, by just allowing women who've given birth to have up to 12 months before they take their physical fitness test. simple things that make complete sense and are really important in terms of retaining the great soldiers that we have. >> o'donnell: secretary wormuth's career start as the pentagon as a presidential fellow when she's just 22 years
3:46 pm
old. today she's the first woman and mom to hold the role as secretary to have the army. >> when i go visit army posts, a lot of young female soldiers come up to me and are excited, and i think it's because they see me and see what they can achieve themselves. >> o'donnell: secretary wormuth told cbs news she wants people to come forward with sexual misconduct claims. she intends to sign a safe report policy to protectet intr. anistoa ne report abouthe and eof the c-1 th a dozen airm stretch crouse canyon. moving his money into his investment account in real time and that's... how you collect coins.
