when big tobacco's products were found out to be killers, they promised smokers safety. they called it a filter. but this filter wasn't safe or useful, just small and made of microplastics that have endangered us all. for far too long, they have polluted the earth. they're literally everywhere. there's no need to search. big tobacco, you'll have to answer for your despicable ride, for your wake of destruction. your one little big lie.
8:14 pm

8:15 pm
self-defense. the justices 6 to 3 decision struck down a new york gun law is expected to directly affect about half a dozen otherostate. and that does include california. this is the high court's first a major gun decision in more than a decade. many people who are supporters of gun reform worry that this ruling takes new york and the nation backward. >> meanwhile, this is just in the u.s. senate has voted to approve a bipartisan gun violence bill. this clears the way for final congressional approval. it comes at a time when congress is grappling with how to respond to recent deadly mass shootings in new york and texas alone. people are still mourning the recent deaths of some 31 people from mass shootings. the bill is believed to be the most far-reaching response in decades to the recent mass shootings. california lawmakers are speaking out against that supreme court move. governor newsom and% attorney general rob bonta were. >> quick to put out statements
8:16 pm
about the supreme court ruling saying that california will continue to lead the fight to keep people safe from gun violence. governor gavin newsom wrote, quote, this is radical decision. today's court thinks that gun regulations to be frozen in time. and if there wasn't a similar law in existence in the 17, 100's or 18, 100's, then a state can't pass it. now, no matter how important it is to protect people from the modern horror of gun violence. the governor is promising to sign 60 new gun safety bills next week, including a bill that will allow people to sue gun makers and distributors. attorney general rob bonta says he's committed to preventing gun violence by advocating for common sense gun laws seizing guns from those who are prohibited from having them ending the sale of illegal firearms through litigation against ghost gun retailers and improving transparency by expanding gun violence related data to the state releases 2 researchers. today's january 6 committee hearing focus on the

8:18 pm
well, i'm just asking you do is just say it was corrupt and leave the rest to me in the republican congressman, both top officials said the president wanted someone in charge at the doj who would do what he wanted. but neither donahue or rosen would go along with his wishes. united states justice department functions on facts, evidence and law and those are not going to change. so you can have whatever leadership you want, but the department's position is not going change. evidence also shows there was an effort by pennsylvania republican congressman scott perry to get a new attorney general in position before january 6th. the january 6th hearings will resume after summer recess. >> reporting in washington. i'm basil, john. >> the federal government is canceling about 6 billion dollars in student loan debt. the move affects about 200,000 people who attended for-profit schools such as corinthian colleges. it take a technical is to 10 other summer trade schools and applied for a loan cancellations. a class action lawsuit was filed against

8:28 pm
>> abortion has been a legal right for women in the united states for nearly 50 years. but that could soon change. u.s. supreme court is expected to rule on its future at any moment. literally. kron four's justine waltman has a look at how roe versus wade came to be. >> in january, 1973, the supreme court ruled the united states constitution protects a woman's right to an abortion. the case was brought by norma mccorvey jane roe, who in 1969, was pregnant with her 3rd child. she wanted an
8:29 pm
abortion but lived in texas where abortion was illegal. her attorneys filed a lawsuit against her district attorney henry wade alleging the texas abortion laws were unconstitutional. the case went to the supreme court where the justices ruled in her favor 7 to antiabortion politicians and activists have sought for decades to overrule that decision. what is before the court now? dobbs first jackson women's health organization. the case centers around a mississippi law that would ban most abortions after the 15th week of pregnancy in may of 2022. a leaked draft majority opinion penned by justice samuel alito hinted the court is prepared to overturn roe with its final decision on dobbs versus jackson. the release of a draft opinion for a pending case is unprecedented in recent supreme court history. justine waldman, kron, 4 news.
8:30 pm
>> the case looming before the supreme court is considered the most consequential in generation to talk about its possible effect and other issues on a very busy day in our nation's capital were joined by donna crane, a political science lecturer at san jose state university. donna, thank you for you know, being with us tonight. there's so much going on. let's start with the abortion issue. it does appear that roe v wade will be overturned. it's the difficult to understand. we hear people in the legal community talk about legal precedents. this has been on the books for almost 5 decades yet. here we are facing is removal as a right for americans. >> how does that sit? how does that unfold? >> here's how it happened when roe versus wade of what became the law of the land in 1973 of the anti-abortion movement set down and mapped out a 3 decade long plan to put enough justices on the supreme court
8:31 pm
that they can eventually overturned the decision. and to do that, you need to elect presidents who will appoint anti-abortion judges and justices and you need to elect senators who will confirm that. and that's exactly what the set about doing. so this is the culmination of more than 30 years worth of strategic work. and it is worth mentioning here that one of the key architects of this 30 year plus long plan was young lawyer. i'm back in the day. and in sam alito. wright, who is now a justice on the supreme court >> donna, this seems there seems to be some conflicting rulings here by the supreme court because they just came out with his gun ruling regarding the state of new york today has a look at the abortion issue. so on in the case of abortion, they're going to rule that states can basically ban abortions within the state's california will have legal abortions. another state to like texas will not. so states have completely different rules in this
8:32 pm
country regarding abortions. but when it comes to guns, they don't have that. california has gun restrictions. new york had a gun restriction. the state. the supreme court said the states can't do that. state want that wants to have gun restrictions can implement those restrictions. is that a conflict or sears because that it's the same court. >> it's legally and logically elected officials and politicians and even judges have very inconsistent views on the concept of federal s. ah. ah, was the concept of how much power should the federal government, however, says the state government's half. and in this case, the simple explanation is, i mean, it's just very obvious, very the justices on the supreme in general have us. there's a 63 majority in favor of gun rights and there is a 6 to 3 majority in opposition to abortion rights. this is these
8:33 pm
decisions are totally inconsistent. and really just purely out space. >> again, we have several things you want to talk on this gun issue of give us a sense of how you see this playing out because that people can carry concealed weapons without a permit. and yet there's still a lot of little caveats involve. how do you see this playing out across the nation at a time when gun violence, mass killings? are you at an all-time high? >> you a friend of have defer to my colleagues who are more expert the issue of gun safety. i will mention one thing that i think it's really important for people to bear in mind. and that is the the country is on the public and the country as a whole actually very strongly in support of reasonable restrictions that assured on safety. and this is one of the areas where congress is really out of step with where the public is. and that's in large part because members of congress still especially in a sense i don't entirely
8:34 pm
represent the country as a the senate is tilted toward more conservative, more rural states. and that means generally states that have stronger views on the second amendment. so there is there has always been a disconnect and i think we continue to see that. and this is how we got to the supreme court to that. >> let's move on to the january 6 hearings set just your impression of what happened today. seems there's some explosive new details about to the former president really pushing hard to overturn the election is basically a coup. >> exactly right to cook from inside the palace, if you well, i you know, i was watching the hearings this morning was that it was said to each other if there were a plot on a television program that follow these contours. we would say this is preposterous and observing completely it's what seems to have been presented today is that the president was hole time from
8:35 pm
the day he lost the election until january 6 when he, you know, spurred an in trying to persuade the department of justice to back up his false claims that he won the election. department of justice is supposed to be independent not. his lawyers workers who work for us to people. and it's just this is watergate level conspiracy here. i've never seen anything quite like it. >> one of the things that stood out to me was when kinzinger mention the fact that there were so many people asking for pardons ahead of time and that you don't. he said you don't ask for a pardon unless you know you've done something wrong. how might that play out legally for the people who did ask for those pardons? >> i would be very nervous, very nervous. was already one of those 5 members of congress that were listed as as being on the record asking for part of i think i think there's
8:36 pm
some potential trouble coming for these members of and if not legal, that certainly feel that at all. i think one of things the committee is trying to do is to sort of separate donald trump and his top lieutenants in this conspiracy from the rest of the republican party to make them a politically untouchable. so that even legally, if someone doesn't follow them, they'll they'll just be a politically toxic and i think the hope hope is that the party will eventually back >> it certainly so it looks like the committee is trying to show, though, that everything emanated from the oval office, all of this was orchestrated from the white house. do you think the former president will be held to account criminally or otherwise? >> i would say i do think the president, the former president will kate, will pay a price politically. i do. understand from my republican friends sort on the inside party elders understand that
8:37 pm
trump is toxic. they sort of want trumpism without chop. and so i think that's one set of one set of consequences face his legal consequences. i confident would give it maybe today about a fifty-fifty chance that he faces any legal consequences. and if he does, i think they're more likely to be coming from the state government and the >> down real quick because we're out of time, of course. but i just want to go back to roll for one quick question. you said it took 30 years to build to this point to overturn roe. for those who want to keep row or something like it. will it take another 3 decades too, restore something like road? >> it will 63 antiabortion majority on the court right and the those justices that were appoint most conservative justices are because of our system will have to wait until they retire or leave office for new justice is to be we're talking about potentially a
8:38 pm
generation. donna crane lecturer at san jose state university. thank you so much for your insight. always appreciate >> thanks, still ahead, a day to top covid official testifies how doctor deborah birx says the trump administration held up its response to the pandemic. >> and never too early to plan ahead for the weekend. your sierra forecast coming up in just a few minutes.

8:41 pm
>> donald trump's former covid coordinator testified on capitol hill today that his administration engaged in a widespread pattern of political interference in the pandemic response. doctor deborah birx spoke before a house panel about her time in the trump administration. she admitted that inconsistent messaging from the white house gave the public a false sense of security about the threat posed by covid-19. she also told lawmakers that members of the administration actively encouraged her to mislead the public. >> created a sense among the american people that this was not going to be a serious pandemic. we still are not effectively communicating the effects of this. both antiviral ys. burks has projected that 130,000 american lives could have been saved after the first wave of the pandemic. >> if the federal government had implemented optimal mitigation as she called it. >> 2 new omicron subvariants appear to be able to evade the antibody protection provided by both prior infection and
