tv   At This Hour With Berman and Bolduan  CNN  June 5, 2015 8:00am-9:01am PDT

8:00 am
thanks so much. thank you for joining me today. i'm carol costello. "at this hour" starts now. a shocking claim. a woman comes forward to say denny hastert abused my brother but the question is are there more alleged victims? it could be the biggest cyberattack against the u.s. government ever. the breach impacting millions of americans and setting up a showdown with china. trapped above 13,000 feet. more than 100 climbers including americans facing landslides and storms. crews right now racing to save them. good morning, everyone. i'm john berman. >> i'm kate bolduan. bombshell revelations in the scandal involving former house
8:01 am
speakerhastert. she says her brother was sexual abused by hastert when he was a wrestling coach in the 1970s. the first name of an alleged abuse victim to emerge since hastert was indicted for unrelated charges alleging bank fraud and lying to the fbi about trying to pay out $3.5 million in hush money. >> during the interview, the woman describes when her brother first told her about the alleged abuse. >> i asked him, when was your first same-sex experience? he just looked at me and said it was with dennis hastert. i know i was stunned. i said why didn't you ever tell anybody? he was your teacher. why didn't you tell anybody? he just looked at me and said who is ever going to believe me?
8:02 am
in this town, who is ever going to believe me. >> was it your sense this happened more than once? >> i said, was it all through high school? he said yes. all through high school. here was the mentor, the man who was basically his friend, who was the one abusing him. >> want to bring in cnn investigations correspondent chris frates. these are stunning allegations. >> they really are, john. this is the sister of one of denny hastert's former students telling abc news that hastert abused her brother throughout his high school career. steve was abused by hastert in the 1970s while he was a high school wrestling coach and the boy was the equipment manager. his sister says her brother first told her about the alleged abuse in 1979 and that was the year he revealed to her that he was gay. when her brother, steve, died in
8:03 am
1995, hastert had attended his funeral. she was very, very angry about that. she first confronted him about these allegations at that funeral. federal prosecutors allege that hastert had agreed to pay a different man $3.5 million to hide his past conduct. hastert is now being charged with trying to hide the payments to this other victim and for lying to the fbi. we've reached out to hastert's attorney and the fbi for comment. we've not heard back yet. it's interesting to note that hastert has not made a public statement since he was indicted last week and we'll see on tuesday when hastert is scheduled to make his first court appearance here in chicago what else we can learn. >> the silence has been deafening. chris frates, thanks so much. we want to get further insight into the new details here. joining us now, cnn legal analyst and former prosecutor
8:04 am
tom callan. leave aside banking issues and lying to the fbi and statute of limitations here. denny hastert is accused of by this woman is a serious, serious crime. >> absolutely serious crime. if this were to happen today in illinois, it would be class a-1 felony under illinois law punishment by 4 to 15 years in prison. by the way, mandatory prison sentence. no probation. no community service. mandatory prison had he been prosecuted today on this charge. >> this happened back in the early 1970s. at this point when you hear the story, you wonder if this family has any legal recourse now. >> sadly they don't because of statute of limitations issues. they could have grot a civil case within ten years of
8:05 am
becoming aware of the abuse but the ten-year period is gone because they knew about it as far back as 1979. they'll not have an ability to sue. this suggests there's more than one victim here and who knows how many other victims because it's been my experience as a prosecutor that in these kinds of molestation cases, there are multiple victims, not only one. >> these events took place as far back as 1970. he told his sister 1979. he died in 1995. the time line here is very long. what's the legal impact of the possibility that there are more people out there? there is this deceased man and individual a named in the indictment. any legal impact to having more than one person here? >> there will be in terms of the indictment itself. this is a clever use of a federal banking statute and lying to the fbi statute really to reach back in time and impose
8:06 am
justice on denny hastert for these alleged offenses. >> is that what's going on here? >> it's absolutely going on. i think justice started investigating this and looking at this and when they opened this door, they found this thing that shocked them. they found sexual abuse, statute of limitations that expired and now these two offenses that he's charged with are both five-year offenses. one of them, the lying to the fbi charge, opens the door to discussion of all of these other charges because he's lying about what he's using the money for. and if he chooses to contest this in court, the feds can come in and say we're going to prove you were covering up a history of sexual abuse of children. that's why you told the lie to the fbi. >> the sister said in that interview the fbi reached out to her and came to speak to her. when you talk about statute of limitations and the fact they caught him with these other charges, bank fraud and lying to the fbi, why was the fbi wanting
8:07 am
to speak to her? purely part of the investigation to see if there was anything there or was it to be kind and let her know this was about to happen? >> i suspect they were talking to her in the event that they would use the family's testimony in the lying to fbi count because, remember, the fact that the statute of limitations is gone and family can't prosecute doesn't preclude federal prosecutors from saying he lied because he didn't want this to come out. it would have been destructive of his career as a lobbyist and opened other allegations against him and provides a strong motivation to lie to the fbi about why you're taking all of this money out of the bank and paying it somewhere. >> now we have this story and still individual a, that person not named in the indictment. that person is still out there of course. we'll be following this. there are developments. thank you so much. >> thank you, kate. coming up for us, dozens of climbers including americans are right now trapped after an

earthquake rocked one of the world's highest mountains. we'll find out how crews are right now trying to reach them. a history making cyberattack just days after a tense military staredown. china versus the united states. is there a new quiet war under way? her son left to join isis and now she has a warning for parents across the united states. what does this mother think about the alleged attacker who was killed in boston. why should over two hundred years of citi history matter to you? well, because it tells us something powerful about progress: that whether times are good or bad, people and their ideas will continue to move the world forward. as long as they have someone to believe in them. citi financed the transatlantic cable that connected continents. and the panama canal, that made our world a smaller place. we backed the marshall plan that helped europe regain its strength.

8:12 am
suspect today. his brother admits that usaama was shnot shot in the back as initially thought but said he wasn't connected to isis or planning to behead anyone. >> we dispute it. we don't know that to be a fact about usaama. we're a muslim american community. i think really you have to start speaking more about the muslims of america and not the muslims in syria who were doing bad things that don't like america. speak about the muslims who live here and like america. that's me. that's the rahim family. >> so if what police say about rahim is true, what is it that draws kids to isis? what is it? a group called mothers for life is trying to take on the terror group to combat just that. posting an open letter on social media to try to open the eyes of
8:13 am
families to terror recruitment. joining us now is one of those mothers. her 22-year-old son was recruited by isis. he ultimately died in syria. as we listen to the family of usaama rahim and they say they knew nothing about him being radicalized and what could be going on are in disbelief that it actually happened, we heard that before when people say we had no idea this was happening to our family member. you, yourself, that happened to you. how is it possible? it surprises folks that the family wouldn't know when someone is being radicalized. >> i think it's because we always want to think it's going to happen to someone else first and foremost and it's difficult for us to realize that it could happen to us as well. and it's all walks of life and any family dynamics, social economic dynamics. it doesn't make a difference.
8:14 am
and these signs that we see, they have been taught especially now it's changing, they are taught not to show any signs to parents on how to keep it hidden. as a mother, you can still feel that change. you can feel that disconnect and you can see it within their social circles if they're withdrawing from the usual group of friends. signs you would see for depression, suicide, someone who is joining gangs, going through any of those difficult times. you have to keep your eyes open and determine what path they're following. >> it says it's possible that this brother did really have no idea and it's possible that he was radicalized without brother's notice or family's notice. as you look back on your own experience, are there signs that you can point to that you missed that you look back now and say uh-huh? >> at that time he left in 2012.
8:15 am
in north america we hadn't heard of people joining foreign fighters or no such thing. blind to it completely. when i saw changes within the aggravation, much more rigid views, conspiracy theories, a lot of other issues that he never raised before, i found it shocking but at the same time i figure, okay, he's going through a learning process and will level out over a period of time because i didn't understand that these were warning signs to watch for. >> the family right now are clearly having a very hard time believing allegations against him. from your experience, when did it become clear that your son had been radicalized and that this had happened? >> once i realized where he really was and i started researching and understanding the whole phenomenon going on, then i can look back and say, okay, he started going through
8:16 am
his changes back in 2011. i had start searching and looking and think this changed his mood instead of being peaceful, calm and grounded, he became very aggravated, agitated. instead of us seeing his friends like we normally did, his new friends we never met. phone calls that he would receive he took outside to talk to them instead of speaking in front of us. so he almost had like a private side that he was trying to keep away from us. >> you know, we keep hearing the phrase radicalized online by isis. i'm not sure we fully understand what that means. radicalized by whom and exactly how? how does this manifest itself? >> well, there are actual recruiters out there looking for young, vulnerable people that are looking and seeking for something more fulfilling in life. if they express that, they are online, on twitter, tumband the
8:17 am
build this network and family online where kids can become part of that and feel like they connect and belong without necessarily feeling that this is a violent movement. they discuss what's happening is the media's twisting everything around so what we're seeing is not actually true. >> chris, you are now fighting back. i have seen you say you're fighting fire with fire. you are going to social media to try to open families eyes and trying to fight isis in this regard. how do you do that when you know that the isis presence online in social media is so huge and only growing and you're one woman up against it. >> i'm not one woman. there are several mothers part of our group and they have parents as part of their group. it's a team effort. we're increasing that as we go
8:18 am
along and as awareness comes out. other parents are saying we want to join forces with you. that's what we'll continue to do. they'll continue to recruit, and so can we keeping our children home and safe and realize this is what it is and really what it stands for and what love and peace is really about and it's not about picking up a gun and not about fighting and we can connect at home. just by working together and using those things, social media platforms they're using, we'll turn it around and fight harder for our kids. >> well said. i for one certainly believe in the power of a lot of mothers here. you can do good things. thanks so much. >> thank you. an earthquake at 13,000 feet. now more than 100 climbers trapped including americans. new information on the desperate race to save them. >> cnn goes to the scene of the exact spot where a lion mauled a young american woman and she
8:19 am
died. we'll see what happens next. guys, it's just the two of you. the setting is just right. but here's the thing, about half of men over 40 have some degree of erectile dysfunction. well, viagra helps guys with ed get and keep an erection. and you only take it when you need it. ask your doctor if your heart is healthy enough for sex. do not take viagra if you
8:20 am
take nitrates for chest pain; it may cause an unsafe drop in blood pressure. side effects include headache, flushing, upset stomach and abnormal vision. to avoid long-term injury, seek immediate medical help for an erection lasting more than four hours. stop taking viagra and call your doctor right away if you experience a sudden decrease or loss in vision or hearing. ask your doctor about viagra.
8:21 am
8:22 am
new today, the frenzy over female viagra. one big step closer to getting fda approval. adviser board voted to okay the dr drug. it helps women with low libido. the agency rejected it twice in the past saying it had too many side effects. >> it could be available in pharmacies later this summer if
8:23 am
given final approval. how does it work? who should be prescribed this drug. let's discuss. joining us is director of women's heart health at new york's lennox hill hospital. thank you for coming in. we call it the female viagra. this is very different than just saying it's female viagra. how is it different? >> let's talk about viagra. viagra works on men very mechanically. it dilates the arteries and leads to an erection. women it's sexual libido is complicated. it works in the part of the brain that deals with motivation and desire and what it does is increases a woman's libido and increases her desire. these are for premenopausal women who have a low libido and it's associated with depression and really having a lack of
8:24 am
quality of life. it's a daily drug because again it's not mechanical. you can't use it just at the moment of. you have to take it every single day because it's working on the brain. >> fundamentally speaking calling it female viagra does a disservice. it's a one-time thing. you take viagra and you go have sex and for female viagra with a name i can't say, it's a change of life. you take it every day to change your chemical balance in your brain? >> that's exactly right. in doing that in taking a daily drug, whatever you do the rest of the day, it is affected. the issue with this drug and reason the fda really hasn't approved it is because of drug to drug interactions and also you cannot drink alcohol. and if you do, it's associated with dizziness and the possibility of fainting. >> side effects are real on this. >> real side effect. that's part of what took the fda a little time to decide. >> success rate is something that we've been discussing actually. it's not just saying you take
8:25 am
this and it's 100%. it's actually -- when you get into how successful it is in improving libido, it's about 20% more successful than taking a placebo pill. fascinating. >> it gets back to what i was saying originally which is how complicated this issue is in women. it's a little different than men. and so it's not that you're going to take this pill and everything will be okay. but for some women it will help. just not for all women. >> in the discussion itself, you know in some ways, is it a fair discussion from the beginning? are men treated differently than women when it comes to this idea of the right and ability to have sex when they want to? >> okay. let's say this. there is an initiative to even the score which has been about this issue. there are 20 medications on the market dealing with men's libido and none for women.
8:26 am
so we have to step back and say why is that? >> is this gender bias at the fda or is it -- >> biology. >> do we not talk about it as much? >> i think it's a little bit of both. i think we have to step back and realize this is an issue that needs to be addressed. this is a reality in women. both premenopausal and post-menopausal but it's not just mechanical. it's so much about the brain, emotions, attachment, all of these other factors go into it but we need to do the research. i think this is such a void that it becomes sexist of an issue. why hasn't the research been done? i think that's part of the problem. it is more complicated in women than in men. we just need to do the work and the research to get there. >> an important start. >> i think it's important that we're talking about it. you don't have to giggle about it. talking about a woman's sex drive, we should be able to talk about it. >> it's part of quality of life
8:27 am
and it's time we have the discussion. >> thank you. great to see you. >> coming up for us, it could be the largest cyberattack in the u.s. government ever and the u.s. is putting the blame right on china. is this an act of war? we'll talk to the former ambassador to china, jon huntsman, coming up next. attacked by a lion. we'll go to the park where a young american woman was just killed. we'll see the lions at work as they rush cnn's car. >> here we go. here we go. whoa. my gosh. ne room and it turned on everywhere else. but that's exactly how traditional cooling and heating systems work. so you pay more than you should. but mitsubishi electric systems give you a better way... with no waste and lower energy bills. control temperatures precisely in one or every room ...

8:31 am
new today, it could be the biggest cyberattack ever on u.s. government systems and it hit nearly every single federal agency. details we're learning today are unprecedented and unnerving. >> hackers believe to be from china may have gotten the social security numbers including the job assignments of nearly 4 million current and former federal employees and that could include workers in sensitive areas of the government like the defense department. the intrusion happened back in december. it was discovered in april. u.s. intelligence says china was behind the attack. chinese officials call the accusations irresponsible. >> i want to bring in someone who knows a lot about this. former u.s. ambassador to china and former governor of utah jon
8:32 am
huntsman. governor, ambassador, thank you for being with us. >> a pleasure to be with you. thank you. >> these cyber shenanigans take a week after we have seen a military face-off between u.s. planes flying over these man made islands in china that china is holding onto. staring them down militarily and we're having this cyberattack on u.s. government systems. is there a sort of cold war here we're beginning to see between the united states and china that is simmering or worse? >> well, what we're seeing is the modern day manifestation of the two most powerful countries in the world. it will only get worse in terms of the cyber aspect which is shocking to everyone if chinese are behind it and i suspect they are were able to obtain by getting the information on 4 million people. for intelligence agencies, this is an absolute treasure-trove. and what's happening in the
8:33 am
south china sea of course will play out for some time to come because these are issues around sovereignty and not easily resolved. this is why in today's world we're talking about the middle east and isis and how to put pieces back together again. there really isn't enough talk about the u.s./china relationship. it's the trarelationship we neeo spend the most time on at the highest levels of government. it's received insufficient attention as of today. >> i have a couple questions on the cyber front. when john brings up man-made islands in the south china sea, you wonder what does the chinese government if it is the chinese government, want with this information but also how threatening are all of these maneuvers? we heard from former deputy director of the cia saying that all of this together, all of this together could lead to a war between the u.s. and china. do you think that's possible?
8:34 am
>> it's a highly competitive relationship. and it's going to remain a very competitive relationship for a long time. it means the united states is going to have to be at its very best in terms of how we operate in the asia pacific region and in terms of assets and strategy and policies we put forward. in terms of the defenses that we put in place against cyber attack. cyber, as we're all waking up to again this morning, is the newest domain of warfare. we have looked at sea and land and space and now cyber is the fourth domain the warfare. we traditional haven't recognized it as such and our defenses are inadequate. >> what do you think if it was the chinese military or if they are connected to this or behind this, what do they do with 4 million records? social security numbers, payroll records? >> well, we'll know shortly who the aggressor was.
8:35 am
if it wasn't the state, it was probably a state linked group. if wasn't a state linked group, it may have been one of many private organizations linked to universities within china who do this routinely and they're very good at it. i would say there's a real motive here and the motive is to better understand the organization of the u.s. government and what better way to get in personnel files and having been through this myself several times, you fill out this highly invasive sf-86 form which details your whole background, where you have lived, who you're related to, addresses, et cetera, et cetera. so this not only allows somebody, maybe the chinese in this case, to understand how our government is organized, who is in key slots, but also some very specific personal information that even security codes are sometimes based on. so this is one step toward
8:36 am
gaining greater access to intelligence so it's a step by step approach but i have to say this one with 4 million people involved would have to be considered a real treasure-trove for at least the counterespionage efforts on the part of china. >> governor, a quick final question for you. this relationship will be an issue on the campaign trail for sure. i just want to get your take on kind of the state of where the race for the white house stands right now. specifically because during your time as ambassador to china, you served with then secretary of state hillary clinton. i have heard your father say that hillary would make a fine president. i want to get your take on where things stand. do you think hillary clinton would make a fine president? >> well, i'm not in a position to be able to make those political determinations. i would only tell you that as secretary of state i was able to work with her. she was hard working. she was professional.
8:37 am
she was on top of the issues and we'll see how she does on the campaign trail. as a republican, as a registered and committed republican, i'll no doubt be finding the best candidate in that field. the world is growing ever more complicated and i heard it said that the 2016 election cycle will bring with it much more talk about national security and foreign policy. i hope that's the case because we've been meandering too long in terms of america's role in the world and what our interests are and how to deal with allies and friends and indeed a broader overlay, a strategy, that will get us well into the 21st century. it's been lacking and we have a perfect opportunity around the 2016 election cycle to have that conversation and i encourage the candidates to get out there and begin that conversation. >> i think we can both agree that you can be a very important part of that conversation. governor, great to see you. thank you so much. >> pleasure to be with you. >> of course. we'll have you back. coming back, hundreds of

down to the bottom of the mountain and temperatures run into the 90s. this is monsoon season. this earthquake took place just about 33 miles away but nonetheless it caused falling rocks. that destroyed their path. it was nightfall and it's made it very treacherous to go down this mountain and as a result, 137 people stranded here and the weather has been severe thunderstorms, lots of rain and that is adding to the potential for those helicopters to be stranded or to stay on the ground and not be able to go up and rescue these people. back to you guys. >> karen, thank you so much. karen maginnis looking at that. 137 people still trapped on that mountain. a cnn crew went to the south african park where a lion mauled a woman who later died because of those injuries. you want to see what happens. this scary situation when a lion starts to jump at the car while our crew is in the park. that's ahead.
