>> so, we were covering the rallies that the president was having throughout that period after the election. and this particular event we knew was happening. i actually said the night before that -- i was sort of half joking and i said, you know the president is going to tell everyone to march on the capitol. this is the night before january 6th. and we sort of prepared for that potentially hang. >> how did you know that the president would call on people to march on the capitol? >> the volume of rhetoric and sort of the belligerent that was coming out was so significant that, in my mind, there was sort of -- it eventually had to end with something violent. even if you look at the way the campaign was going before, the idea of the election being something that was going to be irregular was already coming up during that time as well. so to me, january 6 doesn't happen by itself. >> it was the culmination of what you had been hearing on the
campaign trail, or even after the election? >> absolutely. to me it wasn't surprising, and it's obviously awful to say this, but in some ways it's like i thought it would be even worse. >> why did you think it would be worse? what did you hear? what did you record? >> if you're telling 75 million people that their election doesn't count and they believe you, you're their president and they voted for you and you're saying their election doesn't count, what else is going to happen? >> are there revelations from your interviews with donald trump that will shock people? >> i believe so, yes. >> do you get a sense that president trump wanted violence to occur on january 6? >> i think the president saw it as inevitability in that the people that were there were doing what he thought was to be correct, which was that they were fighting for their election and for their votes to be counted. >> and alex holder told us the

cbs news app on your cell phone or connected tv. i'm matt piper, cbs news, new york. >> announcer: this is the "cbs overnight news." in the past few weeks we have heard gripping new testimony from the january 6 hearings. but what we learned today was particularly egregious. three former high-level justice department officials testified that the president of the united states repeatedly sought to pressure and manipulate the d.o.j. to, in the words of president trump, just say the election was corrupt. and when those officials told the president over and over again that there was no evidence of fraud, trump sought to replacement attorney general with an environmental attorney with no experience. we also learned of an oval office showdown on january 3rd.
that was just three days before the insurrection. we've got more on that in just a minute. the other big headline from today's hearing, that six house republicans asked for pardons for themselves from the white house. cbs's nikole killion starts us off, all those details. good evening, nikole. >> reporter: good evening, norah. this appears to be another case of the former president ignoring advice from his own administration as he tried to pressure senior justice department officials to overturn the 2020 election. >> between december 23rd and january 3rd, the president either called me or met with me virtually every day. >> reporter: testifying under oath, top former department of justice officials told the house select committee investigating former president trump that - relentlessly pressured them to investigate false claims of election fraud. >> we had concluded, based on actual investigations, actual witness interviews, actual
reviews of documents, that these allegations simply had no merit. >> reporter: weaving previous interviews with live testimony, committee members painted a picture of a desperate president attempting to force former acting attorney general jeffrey rosen and his deputies to cast doubt on election integrity. >> you also noted that mr. rosen said to mr. trump, quote, d.o.j. can't and won't snap its fingers and change the outcome of the election. how did the president respond to that, sir? >> he responded very quickly and said, essentially, that's not what i'm asking you to do. what i'm just asking you to do is just say it was corrupt and leave the rest to me and the republican congressmen. >> reporter: instead jeffrey clark, an environmental lawyer at d.o.j. with no experience in elections, wrote a draft letter that he intended to send to battle ground states trump lost, saying the department had identified significant concerns that may impact the outcome o onat w false.efhe january 6th attack on the capitol, a tense hours long oval office
meeting took place where trump threatened to replace rosen with clark. >> toward the end of the meeting, the president again was getting very agitated and he said, people tell me i should just get rid of both of you. i should just remove you and make a change in leadership, put jeff clark in, maybe something will finally get done. >> reporter: also at that meeting, steven engel and former acting attorney general richard donohue, they helped knock down claims of voter fraud and told the former president they had hundreds of attorneys at d.o.j. who would resign immediately if he went through with his plan. only then, donohue said, trump backed off. >> and i began to explain to him what he had to lose, and what the country had to lose and what the department had to lose. and this was not in anyone's best interest. >> reporter: jeffrey clark did not testify today, but invoked the fifth amendment at a previous deposition. and yesterday federal
investigators raided his northern virginia home. meantime, the committee named more republican lawmakers who sought pardons after meeting with the former president to strategize ways to block the certification of the election. norah? >> it's like there are new revelations every day. nikole killion, thank you. let's go now to the other big story today. the supreme court and the most significant case regarding the second amendment in more than a decade. as the nation deals with a recent wave of mass shootings, the supreme court expanded gun rights, nullifying a new york law that required applicants to show a special need for a concealed carry permit. the ruling could jeopardize similar laws in five other states. we get more from cbs's jan crawford. >> reporter: striking down some of the nation's strictest gun laws, the court emphasized the second amendment is not a second-class right. writing for the 6-3 majority, justice clarence thomas said conceal carry laws in new york and five other states prevent
law-abiding citizens with ordinary self-defense needs from exercising their right to keep and bear arms. new york said the ruling was a blow to public safety. >> this decision has made every single one of us less safe from gun violence. >> my response to that is that's the same clap trap that they have been using for 20 years. >> reporter: but gun rights advocates like tom king who challenged the law said it did nothing to solve the real problems of gun violence or stop mass shootings like the one in buffalo. >> it's not the gun owner. it's not the carry pistol permit holders. it's the criminals that are causing the violence and the gun problem in new york state. >> reporter: the ruling follows the court's 2008 landmark decision that individuals have a right to have a gun for self-defense in their homes. 43 states allow legal gun owners to carry concealed weapons in public. half don't even require a permit. but new york as well as five
other states went beyond standard permitting requirements and made gun owners prove they had a special need to protect themselves. in dissent, justice stephen breyer, writing for the court's liberals, said the court severely burdens states that want to pass laws in various ways who may purchase, carry or use firearms of different kinds. several conservative justices stress there are limits to the second amendment. some say the ruling does not invalidate other state gun licensing requirements and suggesting that states can still restrict who can lawfully possess a gun and, norah, what kind of gun they can own. >> and, jan, we are still waiting for that big decision from the court about abortion rights that could overturn roe vs. wade? >> reporter: that's right, it could come any day, norah. >> jan crawford, thank you. all right, tonight the fda made it official, announcing a ban on juul, e-cigarettes and nicotine pods. the action is a devastating blow to a company that once dominated the e-cigarette market that is
sparking a surge in teen vaping in the u.s.. the food and drug administration said the company was unable to supply the data to determine hill health risks of its products. juul said it will appeal. there is now more than 170 cases confirmed cases of monkeypox in the u.s.. the youngest patient so far is 20 years old. new york city started offering shots to at-risk groups today, but demand was so high that walk-in appointments were cut off and scheduled vaccinations are already booked into next week. it was a terrifying scene wednesday at the world a qualityics championships when an american swimmer anita alvarez lost consciousness and sank to the bottom of the pool. the 25-year-old swimmer appeared lifeless near the end of her routine. coach andrea fuentes, a four-time olympic medallist swam to alvarez and got her to safety. >> i just went as fast as i could to grab her and pull her up to the surface. and once i pull her up, i was just -- my goal was only to make her breathe. >> well, fuentes says a similar
incident involving alvarez happened last year. alvarez is okay now, but it's not clear whether she's going to compete in the finals tomorrow. to finally lose 80 pounds and keep it off with golo is amazing. i've been maintaining. the weight is gone and it's never coming back. with golo, i've not only kept off the weight but i'm happier, i'm healthier, and i have a new lease on life. golo is the only thing that will let you lose weight and keep it off. who loses 138 pounds in nine months? i did! golo's a lifestyle change and you make the change and it stays off.

overnight news." i'm jan crawford in washington. thanks for staying with us. run away inflation and rising mortgage rates are threatening to cool off the red hot housing market. as mortgage rates spiked above 6%, applications for new loans plummeted, and morgan stanley announced it is cutting hundreds of jobs in its mortgage business. what does that mean if you're in the market for a new home? kris van cleave has the story from st. louis. >> reporter: with inflation, soaring interest rates, cooling the market here in st. louis, pending home sales were down nearly 10% in may compared to a year ago, and there are parts of the country where property
values are actually falling. cheryl lesli is house hunting in fort worth, texas, hoping to move closer to her grand kids. >> this is cute. so i'm looking now so when the prices come down just a tad, i'll be able to know exactly what i need and what i want and where to go. >> reporter: but as interest rates surge past 6%, hitting their highest point since 2008, an estimated 18 million households who would have qualified for a mortgage in january are essentially frozen out of the market, no longer eligible for that loan. and those who can still afford to buy, a typical new mortgage payment has spiked 52% over the last six months. >> the market is going to change dramatically. >> reporter: mark zandi is chief economist. >> the price will decline in the juiced up markets. in my mind that's a correction when house prices start to go lower. >> reporter: mortgage applications are down more than 15% compared to 2021, dropping
5% in may alone. that's prompting nearly one in five sellers to drop their price. this week realty company red fin announced it would cut hundreds of jobs because of the slowing housing market. >> the housing market is in a downturn right now. it's sickly call. it just doesn't support the number of employees we had before. >> reporter: this home in arlington, texas, has been on the market for 28 days, not selling even after the price was dropped. only a few people came to the open house. >> six bedroom, 5 1/2, 4282 square feet. >> reporter: realtor tina says that's a marked change. this home, i imagine six months ago, would have sold -- >> very quickly. >> reporter: it would not have been on the market two weeks later. >> no, no. >> reporter: now, there is still more demand than supply for homes, so you can't call it a buyer's market yet. but even in red-hot dallas, the compass realty agent that's working with cheryl in our story there is starting to tell sellers not to expect a bidding
war, especially if it's a house that needs work. >> that was kris van cleave in st. louis. with the cost of nearly everything on the rise, food companies have found a way to keep some prices the same while protecting their profits. it's called shrink-flation. trinity chavez explains how it works. >> reporter: you probably wouldn't notice when you're shopping at the grocery store, but many products on the shelves are shrinking. >> i started noticing changes in product when i would simply go to the store to buy them. >> reporter: mary is a consumer advocate, and last week she spotted gatorade for sale in a new bottle. >> newer bottle is a little bit slimmer. 32 ounces down to 28 ounces, and they were both exactly the same price. >> reporter: it's called shrink inflation. more and more products with less inside, a small box of kleenex now has 60 tissues. a few months ago it was 65. a popular yogurt went from 5.3 to 4.5 ounces.
and the dawn detergent on the right is a half ounce less, but the packaging looks similar to the old one. >> usually we see shrink-flation coming in waves. and at the moment because of inflation, it's a tidal wave of shrink-flation. >> reporter: edgar is the founder of consumer world.org. he says manufacturers, production and shipping costs are going up, and many companies don't want to raise prices. >> they know consumers are price conscious, and they're going to catch that. or they can do it the more subtle way. take a little bit out of the product. >> reporter: and some companies are up front about the changes. earlier this year, when chicken prices soared, dominos announed it would be shrinking the number of chick in wings in its carry-out deal from ten to mpanieneverut zirsre reallydy want tou aers a package that says, look, 20% more. unfortunately we're never going to is see one of those that says, look, 20% less.
>> reporter: some manufacturers may reintroduce larger packages when inflation eases. once a product has downsized, it usually stays that way. trinity chavez, cbs news, new york. the lack of workers has led to a crisis that's affecting every nursing home across the country. according to a recent survey, 87% of providers are facing staff shortages and the lack of qualified care givers has led to unsafe conditions for many of the nation's seniors. mark strassmann has the story. >> reporter: jackie rojas sanchez is a cna. a certified nursing assistant and the face of a staffing crisis that her boss amber mcintosh knows all too well. >> i think covid took it to a different level. >> reporter: without cnas, nursing homes really captain function. >> absolutely not. they're the backbone. >> reporter: sanchez looks after eight residents each shift at abernathy laurels, a nonprofit outside charlotte. but deandre clark, a traveling cna in the same area, sometimes
has to look after 20 or more. >> i have never been to a place that was fully staffed yet. >> reporter: what's the impact on care? >> it's really bad. they be hollering. some of them done fell out the bed. you go in their room and they're on the floor. >> reporter: last january north carolina sanctioned this nursing home after two deaths there. one nurse and two cnas cared for 98 people. in a recent survey of nursing home operators, 98% report having trouble hiring. 60% say they are losing money. nearly three in four say staffing issues could force them to close. >> the status quo is unsustainable. for workers in this industry, for the residents that are cared for, and for the best employers. >> reporter: to recruit more ynas like sanchez, abernathy laurels raised pay to $16 an hour. and started paying to train and certify new cnas.
>> it's a measure of how much the world had changed. >> that's right. it was an investment. >> reporter: most nursing homes remain under staffed, some dangerously so. >> this is the form of neglect and i don't want to be part of that. >> reporter: part of an industry where too often help just isn't there. mark strassmann, cbs news, newton, north carolina. the "cbs overnight news" will be right back.
