4:00 pm
hampered because of how long the remains have been in the sea. wolf? >> let's hope they find it soon. thanks very much, rene marsh, reporting for us. that's it for me, erin burnett "outfront" starts right now. "outfront" next, breaking news. protests and arrests tonight after a donald trump rally. we will have a live report. and more breaking news. trump and house speaker paul ryan, they will speak one-on-one tonight. is trump about to win a crucial endorseme endorsement? plus trump's war with women calling hillary clinton a low-life and labelling elizabeth warren pocahontas. tonight those women are firing back. let's go "outfront." and good evening, i'm jim sciutto in tonight for erin burnett. and "outfront" tonight, breaking news. anti trump protesters fighting with heavily armed police in riot gear, demonstrators
4:01 pm
throwing rocks. police making arrests tonight. the clashes following a large trump rally in anaheim, california. just days before that state's primary. and it comes on top of last night's protests in albuquerque, new mexico. also, erupting after a large trump rally. this as we are also following more breaking news. cnn learning that trump and house speaker, paul ryan, will speak one-on-one tonight. trump still seeking ryan's crucial endorsement. a key to getting the party behind his campaign. we will have more on that in a moment. but first we want to go to kyung lah, "outfront" tonight at the site of those riots in anaheim, california. kyung, tell us what's happening now. >> reporter: well, you're looking here, jim. i want to walk you through some of the police officers here. these are officers clearly dressed in riot gear. what they are doing now, and i'm going to have my cameraman, mike love, take a look down. you can see the police officers on horseback. they're still trying to clear the streets here.
4:02 pm
we just spoke to a city spokesperson. what they're doing is attempting to open the streets. there have been three pockets of protesters -- of protest groups outside, beyond the original protest site, right outside the trump rally. so these are three different small protest sites around the city. these are protesters who have broken off, trying -- i want to show thank you tape we have been sending back to cnn for the last hour or so. we have seen at least five arrests. now we did call the city to find out what's happened with the people who have been taken into custody. and what's happened is that they don't know at this point if all of those people will be booked, but what we have seen are police officers targeting the protesters who appear to be the main leaders of these protest groups, taking them into custody, and trying to clear the street. so back here live, you can see that officers, again, dressed in
4:03 pm
riot gear. they are walking the streets, trying to make sure that traffic ask move through the city of anaheim. we should point out, too, i can see disneyland from the position i'm walking. this is a major destination in southern california. the city tells us they have not had any interruptions with disney land, but certainly this is a major public safety issue for the police officers who are here on the street, jim. >> enormous police turnout. kyung lah, from an mime, california. also tonight, donald trump unleashing a biting verbal assault on prominent democratic and republican women. trump lashing out at both elizabeth warren and hillary clinton. >> pocahontas. that's elizabeth warren. i call her goofy. she's got a big mouth, and that's about it. but they use her, because hillary is trying to be very presidential. she's stopping with the shouting, okay? but then i listened before, and i'll be honest with you. i cannot listen to her.
4:04 pm
>> and trump, who is trying to make in roads with latino voters, attacking new mexico's republican governor. that is susana martinez, one of the most prominent latinos in the party and the nation's first latina governor. jim acosta is "outfront" tonight. an interesting target for him to pick a fight with, jim. jim, are you hearing us there? >> reporter: hi, jim. yes, i can. that's right, donald trump has no shortage of targets this week. all of the main people he is going after are not only in the democratic party, they're also republicans, as well. and they all happen to be women. but jim, they are all firing back tonight. ♪ >> donald trump is on the general election war path, unleashing his arsenal of one-liners in every direction. on hillary clinton -- >> crooked hillary. she's as crooked as they come. >> reporter: trump is tangling with his likely democratic
4:05 pm
opponent over his comments on how he was looking to make money buying cheap real estate during the housing crisis. >> she goes, and donald trump is a terrible person! and he wanted to buy housing when it was at a low point! who the hell doesn't? >> reporter: clinton ripped into that. >> he bragged about what he did. he said, profiting off working people losing their homes would be a, quote, good result. so a good result in donald trump's world is he gets his and you get hurt. >> reporter: the presumptive gop nominee is also firing off his patented zingers at massachusetts senator, elizabeth warren. he is hitting her past claims of her native american heritage. >> pocahontas. that's elizabeth warren. i call her goofy. >> reporter: but when trump tweets, goofy elizabeth warren is all talk, no action, she seems to enjoy the fight.
4:06 pm
responding, fling as much mud as you want. your words and actions disqualify you from being president and i won't stop saying it. after violent protests both inside and outside his rally in albuquerque, trump is also mixing it up with new mexico's republican governor, susana martinez. a gop rising star who still hasn't endorsed his campaign and skipped his event. >> she's not doing the job. hey, maybe i'll run for governor of new mexico. i'll get this place going. >> reporter: a martinez spokesman wasn't amused, saying in a statement, trump's pot shots weren't about policy, they were about politics. and the governor will not be bullied into supporting a candidate until she is convinced that candidate will fight for new mexicans. a trump adviser said the real estate tycoon was only responding to a snub. >> like most campaigns, elbows get up under the basket. we saw a lot of that last night. >> but donald trump has other worries inside the gop after a trump campaign source told
4:07 pm
reporters yesterday that house speaker paul ryan was on the verge of endorsing the presumptive gop nominee. a spokesman for the speaker said that is not the case, and then ryan said later today that susana martinez is a good governor. trump and ryan are scheduled to have a phone call to iron out some of these differences later on tonight. and trump is hoping that clinton's e-mail scandal will rally republicans. he joked that vice president joe biden may swoop in for the democrats and rob bernie sanders of the democratic nomination. of course, that's wishful thinking. that is not likely to happen, jim. >> jim acosta, covering the republicans tonight. former communications director for marco rubio, alexcanant, former communications director for ted cruz, amanda carpenter. here in new york. joseph bir eli. jonathan at that seeni. and trump supporter, scottie nell hughes. so trump's meetings with ryan, these phone calls, like we're going to see tonight, they're intended to unify the party. and yet in the last 24 hours, we
4:08 pm
have donald trump going after really one of the rising stars the republican party. first latina governor in the country. how does he square that circle? >> i think governor martinez needs to take a hint from paul ryan. follow her suit. paul ryan actually sat down and met with mr. trump 50/50. mr. trump is not going to sit there and pander to politicians. and these politicians that expect him to come with hat in hand and sit there and try to work for their vote. that's not how it works. they all need to work together for the people. somehow we lost that kind of balance within the republican party. and so you know, what mr. trump did was after susana martinez said i'm too busy to come meet with mr. trump when he's in town. well, considering her state last year in 2015 was the number one -- received the most money, basically on food stamps, relying on the federal government, i think she needs to have a pretty good relationship with possibly the next president of the united states. it was she who chose this, and he was just saying, listen, you've got to work with me. i'm not going to come and pander to you like so many other
4:09 pm
politicians obviously have. >> so amanda, do you think that's fair criticism? is that the requirement, you need to show your loyalty? >> i think donald trump would like people to do that. what i think is interesting with paul ryan and the governor of new mexico, he's essentially trying to bully them into endorsements. the trump campaign saying, oh, paul ryan is about to endorse me. then the ryan people said, no, no, no we're not. paul ryan has played some pretty good ground work. before he said i'm not ready to endorse donald trump. he said, i think, follow that up by saying, he's three things i want to work with donald trump on. maybe tax reform, maybe albuquerque obamacare repeal. because republicans right now do have leverage against trump, if they will use it to push him where he should go on these issues. but if you're just going to let it be wide open and say i'm not going to meet with him, donald trump is going to make a fool of you when he comes into his state. because he has no shame when it comes to this. so i think -- >> joe, i do have to ask you, is it bullying? those are strong words.
4:10 pm
bullying republicans to come out and support him? >> no. it's not bullying. you see from paul ryan, the one thing you don't see, rather, from paul ryan is really any declarative statement he's not going to endorse donald trump. and there's no question in anyone's mind that the two will come together. as far as susana martinez, she should be ashamed of herself to some degree. she's the governor of a state, you have the presidential candidate of her party in her state, and she decides to snub her? if she thought that donald trump wasn't going to hit her back, she obviously isn't watching the news. >> to be fair, she's not the only republican who has been slow to endorse him s. that a snub to wait to -- >> no. >> to endorse? >> we had a divisive primary. we have covered that to a great extent. but now you see paul ryan making the roads to come on board. you see people like rick santorum. you see a lot of people, establishment republicans, conservative republicans, getting on board. shame on her as the head of the republican governor's association for not. >> there's two different things going on here, though. there's the -- how do you get on board, how do you agree on policy or disagree.
4:11 pm
versus donald trump's abusive language. and he's abusive towards women, democrat or republican women. this is the kind of standard and the environment that he's creating. and it's a sham. it's a complete -- >> what i'm saying -- >> what i'm saying is, it's fine to say come and meet, let's talk about policy. how do we come together and unify. but the kind of abusive language that donald trump uses repeat repeatedly against particularly women but against men and women -- >> no. >> is the language abusive, reuben? >> if you look at when he went to go and see paul ryan -- so and now to say that governor martinez should come and see him, there's a double standard here. there's a difference in treatment. paul ryan still hasn't said he endorses donald trump. and so she has every right to hold off, just like paul ryan is. but again, to attack her and whatever he feels she's doing -- and not doing -- >> let me get alex in here. >> the only chance that donald trump has to win this fall is first and foremost, he has to unite the republican party. he has to earn the vote of
4:12 pm
republican leaders like ted cruz. like paul ryan. like governor susana martinez. and when he goes out and attacks them as he did last night, that is a step in the wrong direction. >> that's his style. >> how can you unify with that kind of back and forth? >> the politician or the people? mr. trump has sat here and time and time again -- record turnout, the top turnout for the gop. hold on. but now let's also realize -- let's get the facts right here. the facts do matter. she first came out and assaulted him and talked bad about him in front of the governor's association. verbally assaulted him first. >> she loudly criticized. >> what did she say? >> that was the governor's association. >> what language did she use? when she was -- he was coming to her state. >> what language? the criticism, he was not being very presidential and will he she didn't like his remarks. but -- >> you can't justify the language he's using based on what she said, which is -- >> supporters throwing chairs across --
4:13 pm
>> it makes me upset. you were very sexist. you immediately said mr. trump -- language against women. and -- you said mainly because it's sexist. i'm sorry, mr. trump is sitting here, he's not going to -- be nice to politicians. he puts the people -- which, by the way, the republican party, he has a lot of leverage, because he has incentivized and engaged more people than any other politician in republican history. to go to the polls. >> a small thing, he's an equal abuser. he abuses people. he abuses people equally with horrific language that is debasing the political debate. >> not the end of this discussion. we're lucky, we're going to have the whole panel next block. but "outfront" next, one of the most powerful women of the democratic party. why is her job said to be on thin ice. and trump wants to ban muslims from the u.s. so why is he investing in a country with the largest muslim population in the world. plus, hillary clinton's e-mail use slammed in a state department report. will it hurt her on the campaign trail?

tonight, a scathing new report by the state department's inspector general has found that hillary clinton never got permission to use a personal e-mail or personal e-mail server as secretary of state. and that there is no evidence she even asked for it. that directly contradicts clinton's repeated statements she did have approval from the state department. the report also revealing there were attempted hacks of her personal e-mail, and more than one time. "outfront" now, cnn justice correspondent, evan perez. so evan, a lot in this report. but one thing that was clear, it wasn't just one time that hillary clinton had said she was allowed to use personal e-mail on a private server. it was, in fact, multiple occasions. have a listen. >> what i did was legally permitted. number one. first and foremost. >> was allowed under the rules
4:18 pm
of the state department. and again -- >> so nobody signed off on it. >> no, no. it was allowed. >> i saw it as a matter of convenience. and it was allowed. others had done it. >> my personal e-mail use was fully above board. it was allowed by the state department as they have confirmed. >> evan, did the report back that up? >> no, it did not, jim. the report says that this -- the setting up of the server and using this private e-mail server exclusively for her time as secretary of state was not only in violation of state department rules, but also in violation of the presidential records act. she was supposed to when she left office turn over all government -- all e-mails, having to do with government business. she did turn over 55,000 pages, 30,000 e-mails. but only way, way, way later after she had left office. because the state department was being sued under freedom of information act requests. >> another key issue, of course,
4:19 pm
is the security of this server. hillary clinton said and has said repeatedly, there were never any security breaches. here is her saying that. >> there were no security breaches. so i think that the use of that server, which started with my husband, certainly, proved to be effective and secure. >> so did the inspector general back up that it was secure to use the server? >> no. the inspector general certainly raised a lot of concerns about whether or not the system was secure. and it reported there were a couple of attempted hacks. there is no proof that anybody actually got in, jim. but it does describe a really remarkable sequence, where secretary clinton reports that she feared she was getting hacked. she reported to an adviser that she thought she was being hacked. and the adviser's solution to this was to unplug the server. which is certainly not the way
4:20 pm
to deal with something like that. according to the inspector general. and so that clearly was not the right way to deal with the -- with a security situation like that. >> no question. evan perez, thanks very much. my panel is back with me now, along with the executive jam of the new york state democratic party, a hillary clinton supporter. reuben, i do want to begin with you. we heard this explanation from secretary clinton repeatedly over the last several months. i had permission. the state department lawyers knew. now the state department inspector general found there was no record of her asking. >> we welcome the conclusion of this review by the inspector general. because it confirms a number of things. number one, it confirms that her actions were consistent of that of a former secretary of state. it also confirms -- >> not entirely true. the report did say she used personal e-mail far more than -- her predecessors. >> but they all used perm personal e-mails, as well as members of their staff. it also shows none of the -- her server was never, ever hacked.
4:21 pm
and she, unlike everyone else, she put forth 55,000 pages of e-mail, and no one was ever subjected to putting that much information forward. >> to be fair, you didn't answer the initial question. she said she had permission. the report found she does not have permission. how damaging is that? >> i don't think it's that damaging. i think this continues to put us a step forward in terms of the conclusion of this issue. when we go around and speak to many voters and we speak to folks, they want to talk about the real issues at hand, just like bernie said early on in the presidential primaries. we need to move forward on the server issue. >> so jonathan, remind our viewers, you're a sanders supporter. i have to ask, you famously said, we're sick -- america doesn't want to hear about your e-mails. does sanders see an opportunity here? does this keep him in the race longer? >> he's in the race until the convention. we will not have a nominee and i keep repeating to everybody, we will not have a nominee until the superdelegates vote at the convention. i do think we will make the argument and the superdelegates will see this. this is a question of
4:22 pm
credibility. we don't have to make that argument, because donald trump is going to make that argument. and if we want to put forth the strongest candidate to defeat donald trump in the fall, it's clearly going to be bernie sanders, because he's believable. he's trustworthy. and he's not someone who will be challenged and questioned about these drip, drip investigations. it is clear, as you introduced this. hillary clinton told everybody there was nothing there. the state department has found the contrary to that. we still have to wait for department of justice investigation that may look -- >> i want to get a republican view if i can quickly. amanda? >> let me just add. as a communications professional, i don't understand why the clinton campaign is not able to get ahead of this scandal. >> it was coming. >> crisis 101, get in front of the problem. don't surprise people. and yet today they were clearly surprised by this report. and they were surprised by the inaccuracies in the report. they were surprised that -- how is it that we learn from this report that she refused to cooperate with the ig?
4:23 pm
why wouldn't she be more up front about that? >> how much are they salivating over this revelation? >> this is tremendous, largely because hillary clinton is whiffing on it so hard. but the one thing that this ig report confirmed is that hillary clinton lied. she misled the public at every opportunity in this investigation. and it shows she cannot be trusted with matters of public record and a long-standing history with problems of public disclosure. >> accusation of a lie. >> listen, there is nothing untoward here. the fact of the matter, this report doesn't shine any light on anything new. everything -- everything that this report says -- everything that this report says is consistent with hillary clinton. >> to be fair -- to be fair, that point about her not having permission, that part is new. >> or -- the fact -- the fact of the matter is that her predecessors did the exact same thing. her predecessors did the exact same thing. >> no. >> and the truth is, she was concerned about cyber security, raised it and the majority of
4:24 pm
this report actually does talk about that. so i don't really see the inconsistency. i don't see the newness of this report. and truth be told, i honestly think that the american public, as reuben has said, wants to move past this. the scandal that has been -- the so-called scandal in this does not exist. >> relying exclusively on a public server for official business. >> others have done that. >> it's one thing for the republicans. but basel, this is not good for us. because it clearly does show that hillary clinton was not forthcoming, and not transparent about this. this hurts -- >> can she be trusted? >> excuse me. this hurts us if she's the nominee in the general election. and you're not telling -- we have to be honest as democrats. you're not being truthful about this. >> i am being truthful. >> this report says that hillary clinton did not tell the truth. >> well, was bernie sanders truthful when he said -- the american public is ready to get past this? if there was an opportunity for him to attack her on this, he chose not to.
4:25 pm
>> folks, we're going to -- >> forget the -- >> that was the most important. >> we're going to have to leave it. one thing proves, this conversation is certainly not over. "outfront" next, while republicans worry about a fractured party, is it actually the democrats that are unraveling? as talk over ousting the party's chair increases and despite his calls to ban muslims, donald trump is doing big business in the most populus muslim nation in the world. we'll have a special report tonight. no way, it's a chevy. oh wow! it's the chevy memorial day sale. time to get the crossover that's right for you. trax, equinox, or traverse. it's very impressive. it's awesome. this is incredible. it'd be a good road trip car. the wi-fi is cool. it's fancy. i love it.
4:26 pm
get more than you expect for less than you imagined during the chevy memorial day sale. current qualified competitive lessees can get this chevy equinox lt for around $189 a month. plus find your tag and get an additional $500 lease cash on select equinox vehicles in stock. [ boss ] it is a very smart plan. so we're all on board? [ paul ] no. this is a stupid plan. hate drama? go to research. price. find. only helps you get the right car without all the drama. only helps you get the right car
4:27 pm
hey, ready foyeah. big meeting? >>uh, hello!? a meeting? it's a big one. too bad. we are double booked: diarrhea and abdominal pain. why don't you start without me? oh. yeah. if you're living with frequent, unpredictable diarrhea and abdominal pain, you may have irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea, or ibs-d. a condition that can be really frustrating. talk to your doctor about viberzi, a different way to treat ibs-d. viberzi is a prescription medication you take every day that helps proactively manage both diarrhea and abdominal pain at the same time. so you stay ahead of your symptoms. viberzi can cause new or worsening abdominal pain. do not take viberzi if you have or may have had: pancreas or severe liver problems, problems with alcohol abuse, long-lasting or severe constipation, or a blockage of your bowel or gallbladder. if you are taking viberzi, you should not take medicines that cause constipation. the most common side effects of viberzi include constipation, nausea, and abdominal pain. stay ahead of ibs-d... with viberzi.
4:28 pm
4:29 pm
developing tonight, a showdown among democrats that could shake the party to its core. democratic national committee chair, debbie wasserman schultz, is right now at risk of losing key support and her job. as democrats become increasingly concerned she may be too toxic to unite the growing divide within the democratic party. my senior washington correspondent, jeff zeleny, "outfront" live from los angeles. jeff, you're talking to both campaigns tonight. what are they saying about the fate of the head of the dnc? >> well, jim, it's no surprise, the sanders would like to see a change in leadership at the dnc. but that is not their decision to make here. they can have a say in that, of
4:30 pm
course. there are three players, one is the white house. the president will is a say in this and the other is hillary clinton, of course. the clinton campaign is fine publicly with what's going on at the dnc. they believe none of these grievances here are the fault or responsibility of this particular leadership. she didn't make the superdelegate rules. this is not her doing. but jim, we were struck today by the lack of support that was sent her way. chuck schumer, the leader of the democrats in the senate, told our manu raju today no comment when he asked if he supported her staying in that position. that no comment carries a lot of weight, jim. he just wouldn't answer. several other senators said the same thing. so i'm told the clinton campaign will be willing to discuss some type of new leadership if that would bring unity between the sanders side and clinton side after all of this is over. but jim, this is still a long way to go. just a series of conversations
4:31 pm
here now about this. but as for debbie wasserman schultz, she is saying tonight, talking to reporters a short time ago on the hill. she said, look, i am staying focused on the general election here. the democratic national convention starts in 60 days from today. she would not entertain any speculation about her future. jim, i can tell you tonight, she's thinking about that privately. these conversations are very real. jim? >> jeff zeleny, thanks very much. and "outfront" now, democratic congressman, steve israel from new york, former head of the house democratic campaign on the dccc. thanks for joining us tonight. >> thanks for having me on, jim. >> you have come out publicly in support of the dnc chairwoman, debbie wasserman schultz. you don't believe that replacing schultz would solve anything. why is that? >> look, i have two concerns, jim. first, debbie wasserman schultz is not the issue. democratic party unity is the issue. and for as long as we are divided on who is chairing the
4:32 pm
dnc, we're not united. we have to consolidate our vote. donald trump is out there, he's cleared the field, he's just wailing away at hillary clinton. and we shouldn't be talking about who the next chair of the dnc is. we ought to be talking about issues that count. which brings me to my second concern. i represent the quintessential competitive moderate section of new york. if i walk into a diner and say what's your position on who the dnc chair would be, one, why is my hamburger so expensive, two, why is there so much traffic and three, why aren't you talking about how to defeat the head of isis. for as long as we're debating this issue of who the dnc chair is, we're not connecting with the american people. >> so to be fair, back and forth we have seen between schultz and sanders. really escalated after he criticized sanders' response to the chaos sparked by his supporters at a meeting in nevada. have a listen. >> unfortunately, the senator's
4:33 pm
response was anything about acceptable. it certainly did not condemn his supporters for acting violently or engaging in intimidation tactics. and instead, added more fuel to the fire. >> in all due respect to the current chairperson, if elected president, she would not be reappointed to be chair of the dnc. >> so these were pretty strong words. particularly from the head of the dnc going right after -- you know, a very close second candidate for the democratic nomination. i mean, when you look at that, you know, can your party afford to get into that kind of fight right now, when -- as you even reference, the national polls show donald trump and hillary clinton very close. >> yeah. and the polls will get better when we're talking not about bernie sanders and debbie wasserman schultz, but how to strengthen paychecks, build infrastructure and keep people safe, which is why we need to
4:34 pm
leave this debate. let me be personal. i chaired the democratic congressional campaign committee. i woke up every morning with people angry at me. i went to bed every night with more people angry at me. some of the criticism was deserved, some wasn't. we've got to keep our eye on the ball and the ball is beating donald trump. >> 20% of sanders' supporters say they can't see themselves supporting clinton and would actually even back donald trump. as we look at this, if it's not important to the big issues of the campaign, would it give sanders say over the next head of the dnc, but by giving him, say, would that be enough to get his supporters to back clinton? is there something there, a quid pro quo, that's possible? >> i just don't believe that people -- choosing between donald trump and hillary clinton are going to have their votes guided by who the chairwoman or the chairman of the dnc is. there are important issues at stake. that's one of the reasons that debby wasserman schultz did
4:35 pm
include many sanders' choices on the platform committee. so their view and their voice will be heard at the convention. they'll have their time and place to prosecute their argument. but if we continue to fight amongst ourselves, we will give donald trump a clear field to be attacking hillary clinton and all the things that democrats stand for. >> congressman steve israel, thanks very much. >> thank you, sir. back with me now, jonathan due seeni, reuben diaz junior. this kind of in-fighting over the dnc head only helps trump in the fall. what's your response? >> i don't agree. last week i wrote a piece for saying here are the two reasons the president should replace debbie wasserman schultz. she's incompetent in her job. the number of seats we lost at the state legislative level, 900 seats, a dozen senate seats. that's under her so-called leadership. she should have been fired long ago. now she has no credibility in terms of being unbiased.
4:36 pm
any of the vice chairs of the dnc would be acceptable and seen as unbiased. and sitting in the chair that everybody would be comfortable with. >> aren't there bigger fish to fry? >> absolutely. and the congressman israel couldn't counting more right. the only one making debbie wasserman schultz an issue is bernie sanders. mathematical mathematically, he can't get it done. and it's time for bernie sanders and supporters to unite so we can go and target down donald trump in november. because look at everything that's at stake here. so i know that it's a difficult personal decision for him to make. but to make debbie wasserman schultz the issue is just -- you know, something that we need to get past. >> scottie, the narrative to this point has been turmoil within the republican party. and there are still divisions, as we know. paul ryan still has not yet endorsed. the republican -- presumptive republican nominee. as you watch this from the other side, does this take away some of that hit to the republican party? >> i enjoy watching it as a republican. but i'll say this. even if you were to replace her at this appointment, what makes
4:37 pm
