that does it for me tonight. we'll see you again tomorrow. "way too early" with jonathan lemire is coming up next. another community is grieving this morning, after a deadly mass shooting. this time, a gunman targeted a hospital in tulsa. killing four people and wounding several others. we'll have the latest from oklahoma. meanwhile, in neighboring texas, the uvalde school police chief says he's not dodging investigators. this comes after a state agency says he ignored them for days. more on the chief's comments straight ahead. and there is some on capitol hill, to get something done in response to that massacre at robb elementary school where a
2:01 am
bipartisan policy on gun reform stands this morning. good morning, and welcome to "way too early." on this tuesday, june 2nd. i'm jonathan lemire. thursday, june 2nd, i'm sorry. still a long week, folks. thursday, june 2nd. thanks for joining us. just over a week since gunfire rang out in uvalde, texas, we begin this morning with another mass shooting in america. and four people are dead, and several others injured after a gunman armed with a rifle and a handgun opened fire inside a hospital in tulsa, oklahoma. the gunman who has not yet been identified apparently also died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound according to police. the chief of police there in tulsa said that officers arrived at saint francis hospital at 4:56 p.m., just minutes after reports of a gunfire were first called in. officers heard shots and made their way to the second floor. where they found the gunman and
2:02 am
victims. at a news conference, tulsa's deputy police chief praised the quick response of officers. there was a three-minute response. so i don't know how long the call took to come in, but it appears as though the whole thing was a four-minute or so time spent, from the time they came in to the time officers made contact, four or five minutes. the response, i cannot overstate how proud i am of the area response to this incident. >> authorities say as many as ten people may have been wounded in the shooting. the victims who have not been identified yet appear to be a combination of patients and employees. we expect to learn more later this morning when authorities hold another news conference. according to the gun violence archive, this was the 233rd mass shooting in the united states so far this year.
2:03 am
a source tells nbc news that senate negotiators have reached a framework for gun safety legislation, a bipartisan group of nine senators, five democrats, and four republicans, met virtually yesterday. and emerged from the talks expressing some optimism that a deal could be reached. democratic senator chris murphy of connecticut was leading negotiations said this. there is growing momentum to get something done and we agreed on a plan to keep working. republican susan collins of maine, added, we are making rapid progress toward a common sense package that could garner support from both republicans and democrats. and democrat richen blumenthal of connecticut says the conversation was quote productive and encouraging, adding, there is still significant work to do and hurdles to overcome. senator blumenthal and senator lindsey graham, republican of south carolina, are part of a sub-group working to address red flag laws. another group is working on mental health services and boosting school security.
2:04 am
while a third is focusing on expanding background checks. when speaking about common sense gun legislation yesterday, senate minority leader mitch mcconnell once again steered the conversation away from guns themselves. >> we have a second amendment to the constitution, which we take seriously, and it is the right to keep and bear arms in this country. and so what i've done is encouraged bipartisan discussions that are going on, in fact, i just had a call with one of the members of it, to see if we can find a way forward, consistent with the second amendment, yet targets the problem, and it seems to me there were two broad categories that underscore the problem. mental illness and school
2:05 am
safety. >> once more, mcconnell doesn't mention guns, we should mention that senator chris murphy, the leading voice on this effort, will be on "morning joe" a little later today. also later this morning, house judiciary committee will hold an emergency session on a large package of gun reform bills. the protecting our kids act, combines eight pieces of legislation. it would raise the age for buying a semi-automatic rifle from 18 to 21, and ban high capacity magazines, with some exceptions, and increase penalties for gun trafficking and straw purchases which are when one person buys a gun for another who cannot legally own one. the democratic-led judiciary committee hopes to get this to the house floor for a vote early next week. even if it does pass the house, it's decidedly not clear the package would get the 60 votes needed in the senate. the uvalde school police chief who faced intense criticism from last week's
2:06 am
shooting is denying reports he has not been helping a statewide investigation. one day after the texas department of public safety said that pete arredondo had stopped requests for a further interview, the commanding issue on last week's shooting pushed back against those claims. >> we've been in contact with dps every day. >> they say you're not cooperating. >> i've been on the phone with them every day. >> they say you're not cooperating. >> just so you know -- >> what is your reaction to -- >> have a good day. >> he was sworn in to the uvalde city council tuesday night is believed to have made the decision to treat last week's attack as a barricaded suspect situation. like a hostage situation, instead of an active shooter. under his direction, the uvalde police officers reportedly stood outside the classroom for an hour while the shooter was inside with children.
2:07 am
it was only after federal agents arrived that they entered the classroom and took down the suspect. meanwhile, secretary of state anthony blinken says ukraine has given assurances that it will not use the advanced rocket systems the u.s. is providing against targs inside russian territory. speaking to reporters yesterday, alongside the secretary general of nato, blinken also pushed back against moscow's accusation that the united states was escalating the conflict by providing these weapons. >> let's start with this. it's russia that is attacking ukraine. not the other way around. and simply put, it is the best way to avoid escalation, is for russia to stop the aggression, and the war that it started. it's fully within its power to do so. >> this, as we are learning more about what's inside the new $700 million military aid package that is going to ukraine. according to the pentagon, the package will include mi-17

helicopters, four high mobility artillery rocket systems, 1,000 javelin missiles. 50 command launch units and 15 tactical vehicles. russian forces are inching closer to capturing a key city in eastern ukraine. the regional governor said the russians now control nearly 70% of sererodonetsk, a town in the luhamsk region, making quick progress to the city center after ground assaults and officials say almost 100% of the critical infrastructure is destroyed and quote cannot be restored. . in its intelligence briefing yesterday, the british defense ministry also confirmed over half of the city has quote, is quote likely now occupied by russian forces including fighters, seveodonetsk is one of

2:10 am
essentially urban combat, moving street by street. according to the u.k. defense department this morning, russia has taken most of severodonetsk and you mentioned 07%, and yesterday we mentioned 60% with a big no-man's land and it is important to say in all of this ukrainian military positions still control part of the city but there are still civilians inside that city, an estimated 12,000. no infrastructure, no heat, no power, no water, no humanitarian aid in, and for the people that are still in that city, jonathan, there's no way out. i want to just run you through what else we're learning from the u.k. defense officials, that just gave their morning update, the next step in the, the next step that the russian forces will look to is crossing the river, and this is a natural barrier, and they will look to push toward this area and the problem is they need a tactical reset according to u.k. defense officials. will that kind of stop or pause or in any way hurt the momentum
2:11 am
that the russian forces have been dealing with this, we'll have to wait and see. the ukrainian forces have had to withdraw from severodonetsk to other positions but there are a lot of miles between you have that pocket and where you have kramatorsk, many other milestones before the donbas region is under russian role. >> there were attacking elsewhere in the nation as well, including some explosions in car kyiv. what more can you tell us? >> i want to quickly bring you up to speed, three different locations that we're also watching, as we have discussed, the russian artillery power has been heavily focused in that luhansk region, in that donbas region, that has taken some of the artillery force from other parts and we were talking about car kyiv in the last several weeks, it has been fairly quiet and yesterday, several attacks, daytime shelling, as well as a shell that hit a school
2:12 am
building, one person killed, according to local officials there, eight people injured on the outskirts of kharkiv, to the northeast of where i am, sorry, east of where i am, excuse me, and north of where that donbas fighting is. the other thing we have been really watching is the kherson counter-offensive, ukrainians took advantage of the focus in the donbas, they launched a counter offensive and russian forces are fighting back quite heavily in that area and russian forces were able to fire some four cruise missiles at the railway infrastructure in the western city of lviv, five people were injured. and a reminder of just how big the range is of russia's military might. >> ukraine's national soccer team got a thrilling victory to put them one step closer to qualifying to the world cup. and emotional victory for ukraine. the whole world rooting them on but so many watching and air-raid sirens going off and a

2:31 am
reporter for axios. thanks for joining us. this is not a name that most americans know, but billed as a key figure in this investigation. what should we expect from his testimony and then secondarily, why is the committee concealing the rest of the witness roster? >> he is a highly influential legal mind in conservative circles. this is a guy who served in both the reagan and george h.w. bush and a former clerk for justice antonin scalia and widely respected in the conservative community and i think the committee is looking to lend a little cross-ideological credence to the arguments that are going to be made publicly in the public hearings, he's also i think going to offer a bit of a forward-looking testimony that looks not just as what happened after the 2020 election, but how in his view and he elaborated on this in a cnn column last month, that president trump and his allies are essentially looking to rig a future presidential
2:32 am
election and the event that trump or his chosen successor does not win in 2024. >> do we have a sense who else will be testifying when the hearing starts? >> we don't. and an official invitation to judge ludig has not been extended yet, we're confirming that they're planning to send one out to him, but i think the committee is taking a bit of a tight lid on this as long as they can because they are still actually wrapping up the closing stages of the investigation, they just extended the deadline of a subpoena to congressman jim jordan, for instance, so you know, i think they really want to have their entire fact pattern lined up before they start laying out exactly what these public hearings are going to look like. >> and beyond witnesses, what the essential argument of these hearings is going to be, we certainly had, a stagecraft is going to be important and they will need this moment to tell a compelling story, to try to shake america, and you know, to attention, and as to what exactly happened on january 6th,
2:33 am
because there is this -- fear that so many people made up their mind long ago as to what happened that day and do they have a sense of how they will proceed, in this, what will be a real chance to dominate the news for a couple of weeks? >> americans have heard so much about the 2020 election, and the january 6th, at this point, that i think with the committee, the committee has a legislative purpose at its core as well, and i think they're really going to try to elucidate, that and that is, what changes need to be made, what reforms need to be made, to ensure that this doesn't happen again, and to ensure that plans that frankly are already being put into place, to overturn and delegitimize future presidential elections, you know, what can congress do at this point to prevent that from happening to head that off and i think the judge will be a key witness in that respect and i think that's where the committee is going with this. >> such a key point, it is not just about what happened in 2021, it's to prevent it from ever happening again. we appreciate your reporting

2:41 am
talking about that, that would mean a loss for russia, and for the rest of the group, with the oil prices as well, and what is being talked about is removing russia from the output supply deals because other members are concerned that russia won't be able to pump at the rate it needs to given so many countries around the world are no longer buying russian oil including the eu which is phasing out around 90% of russian imports by the end of the year. and it is not that russia will be able to keep up with the deal, and reporting that saudi arabia may be stepping in to pump more, because it certainly is in saudi arabia's interest to keep those oil prices at steady levels. today they see oil under a lot of pressure in the red. >> and the white house advisers considering that as president biden heads to saudi arabia in the next month or so on this idea that even if that is a meeting with mohammed bin salman, a toxic figure on the

2:47 am
portrait of the queen just in time for the event england will mark the occasion with a military parade and a carnival. and queen elizabeth ii took the throne in 1952 after the death of her father king george vi, and her reign has extended through 13 american presidents and 14 british prime ministers. let's take a look, festivities getting under way there in london, there is the parade, and members of the royal family and joining us to talk about this, we're happy to say, is daisy mcandrew, a royal commentator for mbs news. daisy, great to see you. it is a big day. give us a sense as to the atmosphere there in london as people are gathering, huge crowds, starting to show up, watching the parade, as the nation celebrates the queen's 70 years on the throne. >> you're absolutely right. it really is a big day. and it's beginning to feel like a very big day. you can see buckingham palace over my shoulder, we have just in the last few seconds seen the
2:48 am
carriages leaving buckingham palace, the first one with camilla, and with kate, prince william's wife, and three little children, charlotte and george, and we have seen a lot of question mark whether those children would have a ceremonial part amid the events and the palace wouldn't come they were, and harry and william, were about the same age, four and five when they were in the carriage, and i think we will know what the first big picture is of that. and there is a lot more to come. the working royals as they are called and they do the day to day job, the royal family, on their way up to just my left, to join on horseback, princess ann, prince edward, sorry, prince charles, and prince william, who will take the salute of the
2:49 am
military in the place of the queen, and we will be seeing the queen, not once, but twice on the famous balcony over my right shoulder later on today. >> so daisy, as you were speaking, we can see there, the duchess of cambridge, kate and her children, arriving, and we have other members of the royal family expected to arrive in the next half hour or so. give us a broad sense as to what the next four days will look like. and the significance for so many there, in the united kingdom. >> this is a four-day public holiday. that is the first thing to realize. we haven't had an extra bank holiday for a royal occasion like this. so everybody is on holiday. the weather is good. crowds are good, they're expecting a million people to come to london, just today, possibly more than two million over the course of the weekend.
2:50 am
and there is a beacon light ceremony this evening, my time 9:00 and the middle of the night and the middle of the afternoon for you guys, and they will be back at windsor castle for that. then tomorrow, there is a more l element at st. paul's cathedral. that's a service of thanksgiving. we're expecting to see all the royals there, including harry and meghan. we know harry and meghan are coming today, but we haven't seen them yet. they'll be joining the other royals up at the parade. but they will be out on show at st. paul's cathedral tomorrow. then there is a huge concert behind me here outside buckingham palace on saturday evening. again, i think we're expecting the sussexes, harry and meghan, to be there. sunday, it is a sort of big picnic, festival, street party, the big lunch, it's called. again we might see them. there will be a lot of royals and, of course, there will be a lot of celebration of this
2:51 am
extraordinary accomplishment. 70 years on the throne. no british monarch came close. queen victoria was the closest with 63. >> the presence of harry and meghan drawing a lot of attention here on this side of the atlantic. we'll be watching for them in the days ahead. also, this huge gathering also feels like a celebration. it's not necessarily that the pandemic is over, but at least we're in a lighter phase of covid-19. the uk hit hard by the virus. there seems to be celebration. daisy, one more for you. give us a sense of the queen's health. she's had to cancel a lot of public appearances in recent months, very unlike her. she's had remarkable energy and endurance throughout her life. what is the sense of how she is doing, and how much will we see her during this celebration? >> reporter: you know, i think buckingham palace has been doing what the politicians do before elections. expectation management.
2:52 am
we keep being told, you won't know if the queen will attend certain events. today, we'll probably see her once on the balcony. we'll see her three times. my hunch is we'll see a lot more of her than we've been led to believe. she has had these episodes of mobility issues. we know that walking and standing -- i mean, for anybody, for heaven's sake, in their mid 90s, it is difficult, even their mid 80s. she is doing amazingly well. it is no surprise that getting in and out of rickety carriages, steep steps, these are things she doesn't want to do, certainly not in public. i think her health has rallied in the last few months. again, i think that's another thing that people will be celebrating over the next few days. and just one tiny point on what you were saying about the pandemic and also the cost of living crisis we're experiencing all over the world, this is expected to bring a financial boost to the uk economy, which is another element that a lot of people will be applauding when

2:57 am
as we just heard, it's the longest of any british monarch. it is the longest of any female ruler around the globe. tell us how her country and the world has changed with her at the helm. >> well, you know, i was just thinking about this morning. one of the things is the queen had been on the throne for, i think, 12 or 13 years before we even got color tv in this country. so britain has totally transformed, tech knowledge knowledge, diversity, so much has changed since the queen came to the throne. we always talk on occasions like this. i remember the diamond jubilee. are the crowds going to be big? will british people still turn out? are they still that interested in the royal family? the queen never ceases to surprise us. as you've just heard from daisy, there are a million people out
2:58 am
there. it happens every time. there's debates about the future of the monarchy and one thing and another constantly in this country now, but the one really certain thing is the enduring popularity personality of the queen. >> tim, the crown has certainly gone, as you eluded to, has gone through a tough few years. some members of the royal family, well, they live in california now. how does a moment like this help potentially change the narrative of the monarchy, or is it seen as the last moment of a fading era? >> well, that's a good question. i mean, one of the they thinks things that the queen said recently is the most important thing to her throughout her life has been her family. it's a big family. but if you look back over her reign, the one thing that's caused problems to her, the only thing really that's caused her
2:59 am
serious problems, is her family. divorces, various scandals that we all know about. that has potentially -- earlier, you were talking about harry and meghan making an appearance here. they were a controversial couple in this country now. their popularity has fallen greatly. so there is always that backdrop of uncertainty about the family. the scandal over prince andrew. the divorces in the past and so forth. throughout it all, the one thing we can say is that the queen's personal popularity has endured. how much damage those issues have done to the monarchy itself, it's hard to say. >> certainly one of the more compelling questions during this four-day celebration. tim, stay right there, please. we're going to have continuing live coverage of the platinum jubilee on "morning joe," which is starting right now, with royal correspondent willie
3:00 am
