president reached up towards the front of the vehicle to grab at the steering wheel. mr engel grabbed his arm. 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 capital. from ktvu . fox two news. this is the fourth cassidy. hutchinson provided the explosive account during a surprise hearing called by the house committee. welcome to the four i'm cristina rendon . this is just one of several bombshells revealed during hutchinson's testimony. boxes madeline rivera begins our coverage from washington. and today's surprise hearing the star witness and aid to former chief of staff mark meadows revealed some stunning outbursts from former president trump after his aides tried to rein him in on january. 6th. thank you. you may be seated, former white house staffer cassidy hutchinson, testifying before the january 6th committee tuesday, hutchinson served as an
4:01 pm
aide to chief of staff mark meadows and said he was aware of the threat days before the capital riot something to the effect of there's a lot going on, cass, but i don't know. things might get real real bad. on january, 6th committee replayed her prior private depositions where she said, a white house official told former president trump about weapons at his rally that day and suggested the president had no issue with his supporters marching to the capital armed just to be clear, miss hutchinson, is it your understanding that the president wanted to take the mags away and said that the armed individuals were not there to hurt him. that's a fair assessment. hutchinson described in dramatic detail how trump demanded to be driven to the capital after his speech and lunged at his security detail and tried to grab the steering wheel from him when he was told he could not go, the president said something to the effect of i'm the acting president. take me up to the capital now. to which bobby responded, sir. we have to go
4:02 pm
back to the west wing. trump lasted hutchinson on his social media accounts, saying he doesn't know her and called her bad news in washington. rivera fox news force him inside into this latest testimony and its impact we are joined by uc hastings law professor david levine. david always appreciate your time. i want to start with some late breaking info here, seeing some reporting that the secret service agents in question are prepared to testify under oath that mr trump never lunged for the wheel broadly here explained the seriousness of the oath. all these witnesses take here. well the oath uh, is your promise that you're going to tell, of course, famously tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, but it's a way of confirming that you have obligations under federal law to tell the truth or your potentially going to be held in crib for criminal perjury, so it's a very serious moment. it's something that we've used for hundreds of years
4:03 pm
to confirm that solemn moment. i know. sometimes there are swearing contests. sometimes people remember things differently. and in the case of mr trump, supposedly lunging for the wheel, miss hutchinson was careful to say she got that story from somebody else. she named the secret service agents . uh so it would be very interesting if they were to testify under oath. ah and we're different, but but sometimes that happens. we do call those swearing contests because people see things differently. they remember things differently. david at the end of today's hearing, vice chair, liz cheney suggested there may be some examples of witness tampering for this committee as they continue their work. how severe are these allegations? well, it's proven those are also very serious federal crimes if you if you could prove that somebody was intentionally tampering with a witness intentionally trying to get them to change their testimony. sort of thientially y serious. that's uh, that's a
4:04 pm
felony. david with that in mind , as you watch these public hearings is the community does as well how much of what we are seeing, do you believe is meant to try and get the attention of attorney general eric carlin and his office and have you seen examples that could very well lead to charges. i think an awful lot of it is directed to the justice department to say look at what we have. and how can you not pursue an indictment or certainly to investigate? here there's any number of charges. remember when, uh, the impeachment occurred. the second impeachment occurred. it wasn't clear that mr trump was part of the conspiracy to have these things happen. uh it wasn't clear that he was deliberately inciting the crowd that he had participated as much as he had in trying to change the outcome , votes, the electors, the different states, and what we've learned through these hearings is that mr trump was front and
4:05 pm
center through the whole thing. it really was a big conspiracy. and mr trump was in the center of it, and there's just no question. i think if you look at this evidence that he and many other people are potentially guilty of quite a few very serious crimes, david very quickly here in closing. do you think what we heard today has the power to change anyone's mind. i do think so, in a sense that look, there's a large number of people that aren't paying enough attention that will never have their minds change, but i do think that there's a certain element of people where there's at least a little bit of reasonable doubt and a little bit of room to say . wait a minute. at least this is not the person who should be put in power. 31 thing is to say it's somebody has or has not committed a crime should or should not be indicted. but gosh, given what we've learned. is this really the person you want to give the nuclear codes too? really? yeah all right. we have to leave it there. you see
4:06 pm
hastings law professor david levine always appreciate your time, sir. always a pleasure, greg. see you later. we will have continuing coverage of the january 6th committee public hearings. they are expected to resume in july after the independence day holiday break, though a date has not been set for the next one. you can also go to our website ktvu .com for the latest information. we want to get to some breaking news. now that we're following in the sierra foothills. these are live images coming to us from nevada county of a new wild this afternoon. this is near the community of french corral, which is along highway 49 just north of grass valley cal fire calling this the rice fire and we do know there's already evacuations underway evacuation warnings as well for other parts of neighborhoods in that area. early reports that we're following say that this fire started as a structure, fire and then spread to vegetation you can see here it is growing rapidly. strong flame shooting high into the sky visibility and issue for fire crews there. one
4:07 pm
estimate puts the fire at 150 acres and growing again. this is the rice fire. in nevada county , just north of sacramento. little bit northeast of sacramento will update you as we learn more but again, this wildfire now burning with mandatory evacuations in that area, for some will keep you posted. we moved to san jose, where police there are investigating the city's latest hit and run a woman was killed, crossing a busy street early this morning, and the driver took off. ktvu s mark sayer joins us on jackson avenue near highway 6 80 with the latest details mark well, christina sends a police say the woman was crossing from the west side here to the east side of jackson avenue when she was struck and killed and now san jose police are asking anyone who may have seen this incident or possibly has any video. to please come forward. at the scene of the fatal accident or some fresh police markings and a shopping cart off to the side of the road full of personal belongings, while police are not identifying the victim, nor saying if any of
4:08 pm
these items are connected to the victim or to the crash, they do say the victim was not in a marked crosswalk at the time of the collision. when officers arrived, they discovered an adult female pedestrian who had been struck by an unknown vehicle, possibly a 2000 and 18 to 2022 honda accord. that driver remains unidentified. it is not in custody. the incident was called into police around 4 45 tuesday morning and resulted in an investigation, which closed jackson avenue for several hours. this also marks an alarming increase in pedestrian fatalities in the city of san jose. so far this year, there have been 33 fatal traffic related incidents resulting in the deaths of 21 pedestrians. at the same time last year, police recorded 25 traffic fatalities with eight pedestrian deaths. obviously the reasoning behind that is many factors as a group and public here in the city of san jose. we want to encourage drivers to follow the rules of the road.
4:09 pm
make sure that they're looking out for pedestrians, bicyclists as well as motorcyclists. back at the crash scene resident francisco lopez says it is not unusual to see vehicle speeding along this stretch of jackson avenue, despite recently installed signs asking drivers to slow down. he says he was also sadly not surprised that the driver did not stop because people act stupid are going to continue acting stupid. so if you're speeding, you're not supposed to hit someone you're going to just take off and hopefully they find him because , like it's not an elderly people. now santa's a police say they are indeed paying extra attention to traffic related violations. right now, for example, beat patrol officers are actually doing traffic enforcement in between their regular calls. san jose police well aware of the rising pedestrian fatality rate, and they're doing what they can to have safer roadways in the city reporting live in san jose, i'm mark sayer, ktvu fox. two news mark. thank you. judge has

4:11 pm
truth in our state. just as well as we've seen across the nation is that the epidemic of hate we saw spurred on during the pandemic remains clear. and present threat. take a look at these numbers, according to the report. hate crimes targeting black people remain the most prevalent and increased 12.5% in 2021. that's up from 456 in 2022 513 last year. have once again increased dramatically rising 177 and a half percent from 2020 to 2021 reported hate crimes involving a sexual orientation bias also increased significantly up 47.8. i'm coming up with roe versus wade overturned and now about there's questions about how the law varies across the country. we're going to take a look at the so called trigger law states and why they are not all the same. and demand for emergency

human services announced its response to the supreme court's reversal of roe versus wade h. h s secretary, xavier buscetta shared details about access to abortion pills and whether the white house can help women traveled to states where abortion is legal. fox's aston westfall joins us in nashville, tennessee state moving to ban abortion. austin is a biden administration now saying. christina as far as abortion pills go, the administration is saying that federal law mandates that abortion bills can be given out in special circumstances. no matter what state you're in those special circumstances include the situations like rape
4:15 pm
, incest and whenever the mother's life is at stake, are explained that all federally supported programs and services should comply with the law, regardless of what state you're from, although he did stop short of guaranteeing that all states will comply, he says. ultimately it might still depend on each state's policies. we will continue to try to clarify for you, but mostly for the american public what their rights are what are authorities are and so that way they know if indeed anyone, whether a state politician or a provider in your state is violating your rights will try to be there. and we'll try to make it clear what your rights are. now on monday, louisiana court blocked enforcement of the stage trigger bans on abortion, allowing the procedure to resume for now. a similar suit was brought up in utah on monday and another in texas today. on the flip side today in tennessee, a federal court announced that it will allow the state to ban abortions as early as six weeks into
4:16 pm
pregnancy. so here are the states where abortion is protected by law. aside from these states, basara was asked about using federal land like national parks, or v, a facilities to build abortion clinics. he says the administration is considering the idea, but no decision has been made yet. but sarah was also asked the white house will help people travel to protected states to get abortions. he kept his answer vague, saying that they're still exploring what their powers are. as far as that goes. and what kind of money they have in order to do things with those powers. ultimately he did say that they're keeping all their options open on the table. and nashville, tennessee, austin westfall. ktvu faxed to news thank you. one bay area telehealth company is reporting a 5000% increase in demand for emergency contraceptives since friday's historic supreme court ruling favor is a digital health company that can provide birth control help in all 50 u. s states. company executives say women are contacting them in record numbers. now that rovi

4:18 pm
fertility industry are worried about the ramifications. this may have on the work they do, and for people seeking help getting pregnant by using in vitro fertilization. joining us now is dr heather huddleston, a specialist in reproductive endocrinology and fertility infertility at ucsf. dr huddleston. thanks so much for joining us. first off. how are you and others in the industry feeling about what we just witnessed last week in the supreme court? um i would say, for the most part, everyone in you know, in our field. it's pretty concerned just because we do see, uh, access to safe and legal abortion as being so important for women's healthl ff us in our field, in addition to being reproductive specialists are trained in o b, g, y n and so there's a strong awareness that this is going to you know, potentially be very dangerous for women. explain that. can you expand a little further because it's still unknown how the ruling could impact your work, but a lot of people are now shifting their focus to the
4:19 pm
future of ivf treatment. explain the concerns around that. well, so with ivf, you know, major tenant of it is that we do create embryos, and we often will create more embryos than are ultimately going to be used. that's one of the ways that we are able to achieve. success is that we're creating more embryos and then able to select the embryo we think is most likely to implant but some of the states since the roe v. wade ruling are really elevating the status of an embryo essentially staying that, you know, potentially personhood or the right to be protected by the state. begins at conception, which is one in egg and sperm. when a sperm fertilizes an egg, so we are handling large numbers of embryos on a daily basis, and which you know by these new statutes would potentially be considered. persons that would be deserving of protection, meaning that if they became discarded at some point, if there was at lab er at any time with this mean that ivf clinics work work criminally liable. so
4:20 pm
i think you know, right now there's a lot of work to really understand the different trigger laws. um there's not really any thought right at this minute that any state right now would prohibit ibf but there really could be some very significant unintended consequences that are going to come from these rules that are coming down in various states. yeah, i mean, there's already talk that some fertility clinics could face potential wrongful death claims may be criminal charges when they do describe those embryos. i am assuming those concerns really do have merit, though, because when you look at the future of what could come, is there any terms any kind of plans that fertility clinics are now doing or putting into place to get ready for potential of that reality? i mean, i think right now the main organization that sort of the main organization for fertility providers, the american society of reproductive medicine is actively investigating and trying to understand from a legal perspective. what all of these rules mean. i do think that at
4:21 pm
an advocacy level there is an you know, major movement going forward to make sure that people's ability to build families when they want them and to have families when they want them is protected. and so i think that you know we're uniting with all of our providers across across all field and all parts of reproductive medicine to really see what we can do to ensure that women have the rights to have families when they want them and everything that's in, you know, it's part of that. but specifically, you know, beyond advocating at state level and at the national level to some degree, our hands are tied. i mean, i think that this ruling or overturning of a ruling has really made, um you know, has has opened us up to a type of regulation by the state. i'm gonna type of control. um over what we do. that is unprecedented, and i don't think anyone really knows where this is going. but it's very destabilizing on that note. is there any concern as well for
4:22 pm
women who choose to freeze their eggs and what kind of ah, implications that this ruling might have on them. you know, i think it's a good question. i mean, i think for right now, i would say that is likely to be something that will still be able to happen because there is if the definition of life is going to be at the point of conception, which is when the sperm fertilizes the egg. eggs are before that point, and so eggs are not a human being at that point, um so i would really hope that at no point would that be something that is, um you know, going to be subject to sort of regulation under these rules. but it's really more the use of eggs. the combination of egg and sperm which we do you know, of course, on a daily basis before we let you go. we know here in california. the governor has already said that they will protect women seeking abortion. they will have safe legal access to abortions. what can you say about the work that you're doing? have people flooded your office with calls do women. what kind of questions
4:23 pm
? are you being asked? and do you think that you will receive more women coming forward seeking your help? i means to be in california, which is going to, you know, do everything i can i think to protect people. there's no real concern right now that states like california are going to be. um subject to some of these, you know significant concerns that are going to be you know, in other states such as oklahoma or texas, so i think i hear important to know that people living in california don't need to really be concerned right now, and we get patient asking these questions. but we have to reassure them that what's happening is that states are now able to decide things. and we're in a state that, at least for now appears to want to protect people along these lines now whether patients will start to leave other states or whether there's going to be difficulty pursuing fertility treatments in certain states that have very significant restrictions. that's a possibility. and then in the same way as abortion care, you
4:24 pm
may see that there's more traveling. to various states like california to provide services in a way that, um is you know the best care for the patient in and you know, in an unfettered way. so we will have to see but certainly we're ready to do whatever wehelp women from other states again be able to have the full access of reproductive health care. dr heather huddleston with ucsf. we appreciate you joining us and giving us your insight. thanks for your time. thank you. instagram and facebook have started removing posts offering abortion pills for women who might not otherwise be able to get them. social media users report some posts about how to obtain the pills through the mail had been taken down. offers to sell or donate. the pills have also been removed. meta which is the parent company of both facebook and instagram, says it has a policy against giving or selling any pharmaceutical drugs. but it says it does allow users to share information on other ways

fourth of july weekend just days away, and it is prime time for fireworks. but the national fire protection association is warning fireworks are responsible for more than 8000 fires and could be risky due to fire season. ktvu tom vacar joins us live from dublin tonight one of the few places that allow them and provide places to set those fireworks off, doc. well, today is only the very first day of the permitted sales of so called safe and sane fireworks, and already, inventories are low. dublin has 15 locations were licensed nonprofit groups may also called safe and sane, state approved, non exploding and non flying fire workers from june 28th. through noon july 5th. these sales are a major fundraiser for service. sports educational, music and church groups. very important because it makes you aware of where the money is going for these boots and things like that, and so
4:35 pm
it's really helpful to get the community coming out. and buying things from, you know, local charity in the case of dublin, united soccer, it's using the money for inclusion. all of the funds that we raised during the fireworks sales goes to our players that aren't able to afford full scholarship. first soccer due to the realities of inflation prices are higher due to supply chain disruptions. supplies are limited definitely sooner than later. a lot of the assortment packs are still locked up at the ports. so what inventory we got now is definitely much more limited than it has been in the years passed in most of the bay area, fireworks of any kind or flat out illegal to fire danger is made worse by three years of drought. even here in dublin. there are places celebrators can and cannot use safe and sane fireworks in town. they are allowed at single family residences, as well as four local parks. but only at shannon, alamo creek. emerald
