tv   Anderson Cooper 360  CNN  July 6, 2016 5:00pm-6:01pm PDT

5:00 pm
clear than anything else out there right now, and i'll tell you, erin, the activists here who have seen the video have made it very clear they believe that this was a murder caught on camera of a black man at the hands of two white police officers. erin? >> all right, nick, thank you very much. it is absolutely just unbelievable to watch that footage. thank you all very much for joining us. "a.c. 360" begins right now. good evening. john berman in for anderson. tonight, breaking news, word from attorney general loretta lynch no charge against hillary clinton or anyone else. also talks under way for a joint, clinton-bernie sanders next week possibly him to endorse her and more on that shortly. we begin with donald trump, fresh from speaking out against hillary clinton and against fbi director james comey and against a system he calls rigged and to some degree, controversially praising saddam hussein and for the first time saying he wishes his campaign would not have taken down a tweet that some saw
5:01 pm
as anti-semitic. his words came at a fiery event in cincinnati. fiery is an understatement. here's some of what he said. >> rigged system, folks. remember, i used to say it. i'm the one that brought that word up. now everybody's using it. bernie sanders is rightfully using it because, honestly, what they did with him was not good. i wake up, and i turn on the television. donald trump loves saddam husse hussein. he loves saddam hussein, and i was just asked a question by the cincinnati inquirer inside and -- there trump, is it true that you love saddam hussein? essentially like sort of that, you know? i said that's not what i said. that's not what i said. that's the narrative that goes around. i actually put a press release out and the people who saw it said that was great, but they are liars. these are bad people. these are bad people, and what i did say -- and what i did say is
5:02 pm
that he was good at one thing. he was really good at killing terrorists. he didn't wait around. so one of my guys who is married to a jewish woman, this is a very fine person, dan skovino, he put out a tweet talking about crooked hillary clinton, and on the tweet was a star. a star. like, a star, and i said -- because when i looked at it i didn't think anything. all of a sudden it turned out to be in the minds of the press only because it could have been a sheriff star, it could have been a regular star. my boy comes home from school, baron. he draws stars all over the place. i never said that's the star of david, baron, don't -- it's a star. have you all seen this? it's a star! the democrats, ooh, was there a mosquito. i don't want mosquitos around me -- i don't like mosquitos!
5:03 pm
i don't like those mosquitos. i never did. okay. speaking of mosquitos, hello, hillary, how are you doing? >> that was donald trump just moments ago. cnn's sara murray was there and she joins us now from cincinnati. sara, it's safe to say this was not the teleprompter donald trump. >> reporter: i think that's fair to say, john berman. this was pretty classic, old-school donald trump. he was going after the media and he was reviving controversies that seem to have mostly put to bed. you saw him talking about the tweet that had the six-pointed star and had hillary clinton and piles of cash and it invoked anti-semitic imagery and he got a lot of criticism for that on twitter as well as from the anti-defamation league and his campaign deleted it. they covered it with something else. his social media director put out a statement saying i never meant to offend anyone. they didn't go so far as to apologize and that was a couple of days ago and donald trump
5:04 pm
brought it all back and in addition to the comment about saddam hussein that he made last night and he started on message and he started talking about rob portman is a great senator and bashing ted strickland and he ended on message and there were some tangents in there, as you noted. >> he did talk about james comey and the fbi and some emails and that is what a lot of republicans want him to focus on almost exclusively at this point and tomorrow donald trump heads to capitol hill and he'll meet with members of congress and he'll try to reassure some members of congress. do you think to not's event and tonight's speech will be reassuring on capitol hill? >> reporter: well, when it comes to prosecuting the case against hillary clinton, donald trump does that just as energetically as he does pretty much everything else. he said she lied about her emails and it was clear and anyone else who did what hillary clinton did would have been going to jail and she's managed to get away with it. so i think you will hear more of that when he goes to talk to republicans on the hill and he tends to do better with the
5:05 pm
closed-door meetings with republicans where they can ask him questions and talk to him more about the fundamentals of his campaign and his strategy going into the general election, but the donald trump that you get on the stump on the campaign trail on nights like these where he is very fired up especially against the press is a totally different thing than what you will see behind closed doors in washington. >> he's an energized, donald trump, that's to be sure. >> donald trump going to capitol hill tomorrow and the fbi director james comey also will be there. he will be in congress going to answer questions about his recommendations against criminal charges with hillary clinton and a recommendation that loretta lynch accepted. director comby is facing heat from donald trump and republicans accusing him of a double standard and charging him under similar circumstances, but not charging her. this is something comey tried to nip in the bud yesterday. >> all of the cases prosecuted involved some combination of clearly, intentional and willful
5:06 pm
mishandling of classified information or vast quantities of information, exposed in such a way to support an inference of intentional misconduct or indications of disloyalty to the united states or efforts to obstruct justice. we do not see those things here. >> republicans including jason chaffetz who is chairing the hearing, they disagree and they want to know more even though in chairman chaffetz's case, he recently praised director comey and would probably accept his upcoming decision. >> his finger is on the pulse of this. nothing happens without him and he will be the definitive person to mack a determination or recommendation. >> that was then. right now let's turn to cnn's manu raju. director comey met with loretta lynch today who announced he's not going to press charges against hillary clinton or anyone else connected to this. what can you tell us about today's meeting? >> john, this does not come as much of a surprise as loretta
5:07 pm
lynch previously announced she would accept the recommendation from the fbi no matter what it was and with comey saying he didn't think a credible case could be made against clinton, she clearly agreed. she met with comby and federal prosecutors who investigated the matter for a year and said in a statement that no charges would be brought against quote, any individuals within the scope of the investigation. now, in the wake of bill clinton's meeting with lynch on an airport tarmac this week, many republicans simply don't think the attorney general is impartial and she will be on capitol hill next week, john, testifying and answering questions from republicans. >> what can we expect to hear from director comey when he appears before chairman chaffetz's committee. he will get a grilling from house republicans and chairman chaffetz and he broke the law and should be prosecuted and there will be multiple grounds of questioning from members of both sides of the aisle and house republicans are saying this is just the start of a political pressure campaign that
5:08 pm
is just going to intensify all of the way up into november, john. >> earlier today, manu, speaker ryan spoke about the fbi decision and spoke about what actions congress might take against hillary clinton. what was he saying? >> speaker ryan suggested that he believed that hillary clinton got preferential treatment and when i asked him today if he thought congress should push for a special prosecutor he did not rule that out. he said that all option are on the table, but ryan had been very clear that clinton should not get access to the country's secrets during the campaign. listen to what he had to say. >> i was on the ticket in 2012. after the convention you get the full, deep, classified information as part of the transition and as part of being a nominee. i think the dni claeper should -- should deny hillary clinton access to classified information during this campaign given how she so recklessly
5:09 pm
handled classified information. >> now republicans on the house intelligence committee privately met this morning, and i am told they discussed whether there was any legislative recourse to deny clinton access to intelligence, so watch out for that, john. and interestingly, i asked senate majority leader mitch mcconnell if donald trump would be briefed on classified intelligence and he would not answer and instead he called on clinton to release the transcripts of her fbi introduce, john. >> 2016, manu raju, thanks so much. i want to bring in basel smigel and christine quinn, trump supporters, katie mcnerney and they were caught in the middle of it all and conservative trump kritdic, kailey, we were talking about tonight's donald trump's speech. not the teleprompter trump which received a lot of praise from capitol hill. do you think this will be of concern to people who liked donald trump painting within the lines? >> no, because this was donald trump taking control of the
5:10 pm
narrative being set forth by the hillary clinton campaign who takes any small incident, blows it up and manufacturers outrage and tries to create controversy where it does not exist and it was up to donald trump to set the record straight. hillary clinton said x, y and z about he and this is my rebuttal. that was most important and it was important to give those rebuttals. >> rebuttals to the star of david or the tweet controversy, which no one was really bringing up today, kayleigh. today was focused on the fbi and focused on james comey and focused on the emails which no republican thinks is a fertile issue and councilman, this is what donald trump said unprovoked in cincinnati today. watch. >> so we have unbelievably dishonest media. so think of that. you have the star, which is fine. i said you shouldn't have taken it down. they took the star down. i said, too bad. you should have left it up. i would have rather defended it.
5:11 pm
just leave it up and that's not the star of david. that's just a star. were you surprised, councilman to see donald trump again tonight unprovoked when so much question on hillary clinton and emails bring up this controversy again. >> you reach a point when you are so frustrated with the manufactured anger coming like things from the star of david to his trip to scotland. one of the things he spoke about at length was his trip to scotland and how the clinton campaign used golf videos of him for years ago that he used it to solely play golf. you get frustrated and see this take a larger precedent in the media over some things that hillary clinton is doing like the fbi investigation, et cetera, et cetera. >> my point is it wasn't taking today, at least a larger role in the media. today it's been all about the fbi. it's been all about the, mails. it's been all about the hearings that will take place in congress tomorrow. patrick healy, you are with donald trump today and with you
5:12 pm
he was bringing up the star of david? >> sure. shortly before his rally today we sat down at his office and he was so clear . it was galling him. it was this idea that he was pushing and trafficking antisemitism and he said i wouldn't have deleted it. i would not have deleted it. to me i saw this and i saw a star. he understood his staff took it down because of sensitivities and sensibilities, but he wanted to fight, and i think the thing that was just so striking, john, is that as you know, you know, republicans dream of a kind of week like this where the fbi director is getting up there. barack obama's fbi director and giving to hillary clinton and serving up these softballs and donald trump instead is just really kind of still seething over a tweet that nobody really wants to talk about. you think that he didn't want to talk about anymore and he's not pounding on the judgment and on
5:13 pm
the confidence and on the instinct questions that now were so fertile that he could be raising against hillary clinton. go ahead. >> it kind of baffles the mind where he would go back to this unfortunate, at best, unfortunate incident and i think it reminds americans that he's kind of irrational and doesn't really have a sound sense of judgment and that makes you question, in my opinion, his stability and character as it relates to being president of the united states, but beyond that, his staff members said that they picked it off of some anti-hillary website, when in fact, that exact imagery, the star of david with words like corrupt in it, on top of a pile of money has been well documented as an image used on anti-semitic websites and it's not just the media or hillary supporters. you cannot assail the qualifications of the anti-defamation league. >> the obama administration -- >> hold on --
5:14 pm
>> let's put up the tweet for that. if this is the tweet that donald trump now says he wishes was not taken down and, tear a the issue and i don't think they'll agree if this was antisemitic or not, but the issue is that by and large, this was litigated in the press, litigated in the public discourse two days ago. >> right. and it wasn't going to be discussed as much as it is now unless donald trump did what he did was the politically unthinkable which was bring it up himself at a rally in cincinnati. >> on a day when hillary clinton, her email scandal and the fact that the fbi director has to go in front of the congress for hearings. these are all things like patrick said, and we talked about this earlier. these should have been death blows to hillary clinton and her campaign, but no, instead donald trump is obsessing over a mistake that his campaign made four days ago. he's still talking about that. he wasted time when all of the
5:15 pm
networks are covering him, rehashing that issue. not only did he waste time on that bringing it back up so now we're talking about this instead of going after hillary clinton, he brought up the scotland golf thing again. he's bringing up all of these other, dredging up stuff and he wasted so much precious time going on and on about himself and other controversies and he spent more time criticizing cnn and the media instead of talking about this country and going after hillary clinton, her record, her problems instead of hammering that message home. he did that for about -- >> he hit hillary clinton. >> he did that for three minutes and he went off on these crazy tangents again. >> everyone expects him to be this crazy politician. >> but he is a real person. >> when he is accused of things that are unsavory and discussing accusations, he will address them. >> unlike the secretary of state who stood up today in atlantic city and tries to disbarge someone's business record. >> he did not deceive the fbi
5:16 pm
and addressing all of the various myriad of contradictions that james comey pointed out. she didn't address the issues. donald trump addresses the issues and takes them head-on like any real person would do. >> i want to get you into this discussion because kayleigh's right, secretary clinton has not spoken out publicly about the emails and what the fbi director said and about the investigation at this point. she hasn't talked yesterday and hasn't spoken today. should she? >> i don't know if she will, but the investigation is over. loretta lynch said that today. the investigation is over. what's going to happen, is the republicans unsatisfied with this finding who have pinned their white house aspirations on hillary being indicted will continue to prosecute her in the shadow prosecution by bringing james comey down to congress, a man who has been lauded by people on both the right and the left and all of a sudden now these findings are somehow flawed. >> hang on -- >> but the point is that i don't know if she's going to address
5:17 pm
them. she addressed them -- >> shouting out questions. >> reporters are always shouting out questions. >> in comments that she made yesterday in the release from yesterday, but the fact of the matter is this is going to continue to get dredged up, and it's not about finding systemic problems and changes that can be made. it's about prosecuting her. >> all right, guys. stand by. investigation may be over and this discussion is not over and nor are the questions over because tomorrow james comey will be on capitol hill and there is much more to discuss about these hearings and later, hillary clinton on donald trump's old turf, atlantic city, taking dead aim at how he ran his hotels and casinos and ran, what she says, into the ground. what muscle pain? what headache? what arthritis pain? advil makes pain a distant memory nothing works faster stronger or longer what pain?

5:21 pm
just before donald trump began speaking in cincinnati tonight word came down that attorney general loretta lynch would not pursue charges against hillary clinton or anyone kecked to her. trump reacted. watch. >> this happened, as you know, with the attorney general of the united states saying no problem. no problem. no problem. you know, i wrote out a couple of things about hillary, crooked hillary, crooked, so crooked. [ applause ] she made so many false statements. is she going to be brought before congress or something? is something going to happen? is something going to happen?
5:22 pm
because it's a disgrace. >> back now with our panel. patrick healy, i want to start with you because the democrats to your right they suggest the investigation is over and this issue is completely over. this is not over. not when james comby is going to capitol hill tomorrow to answer questions and next week the attorney general will appear before another committee and not when the house will consider legislation to bar classified information to go to the secretary of state while running for president. this is kind of a big deal with the fbi director going to capitol hill tomorrow. >> i think it is the beginning of something. it's the end of the investigation and the beginning of a difficult period for hillary clinton. the question is are the republicans who will meet with donald trump will say, this is how you will prosecute the argument. you have her on the hot seat like no nominee has been in years. this is how you have to go after her because this could be the kind of story that lasts for weeks for her and as we know with hillary clinton, she's not
5:23 pm
the greatest at sitting down and taking ail questions and saying i'm going to answer every last question that comes at me, but people are going to be pressing her on this. people will be shouting questions at her, and if he figures out a way to really focus on the mistrust, the judgment, then he'll start being able to reach, i think, undecided voters whereas the conspiracy theories that he's sort of trading in a lot of the times, people roll their eyes. >> when you say she's not the best at answering questions, she didn't really hold news conferences. >> if i can just -- >> if i can just tweak that a little bit. i would take a little issue with that because when she was asked to testify at the benghazi hearings, one of them was an len-hour session and she was prepared to sit down and answer questions related to these very tough issues, but what i think what the voters will look at ultimately is that we spent $7 million on these investigations and the last report hit with a thus. no new information there, and i think what the american people will want to know is you can
5:24 pm
spend all of this time and all of this money trying to go after this woman, but you can't muster the fortitude to create good gun control. >> tara, i want to ask you, james comey will be in the so-called hot seat tomorrow. there's one guy who can handle the hot seat it may be james comey. do the republicans run some risk here by putting the heat on him? >> i think if they don't overreach. as long as they ask legitimate questions, congress has oversight capacity over the fbi and the department of justice and they have every right to ask the fbi director how the investigation was conducted and how he came to the conclusion that even -- what's the difference between extremely careless and grossly negligent. i think he has the american people -- have the right to hear a full explanation of that and as long as they don't overplay their hand and i think what happened at the benghazi hearing, was there missed opportunities, was there new information in the report that came out last week, but at the hearings, there were some things
5:25 pm
and there were some missed opportunities there and as long as it isn't a rehash of that, i think that this still could have political upside for the republicans for sure, but he's not capitalizing. >> i'll change the subject completely because donald trump said something very interesting about the man who was on stage with him tonight. newt gingrich, former speaker of the house, he went out of his way to praise newt gingrich, saying i'm not going to say it's newt, but if he is in the debates, he is not going to lose. do you think he is one, two or three? >> i think he's a finalist in the veep stakes and i think he would be a great choice including people who were not willing to be considered were all very good picks. i think newt does bring a lot of gravitas and brings a lot of mainstream, republican support and brings a vast manage of policy which i think donald trump could benefit from and i want to ask one question to basel's point if you would indulge me a second and it's the
5:26 pm
question hillary clinton won't answer is why -- you have bold-faced lied to the american public about sending emails and not deleting them. you bold-faced lied to the american public on benghazi, what you told your daughter versus what you told the public. how do you answer that -- >> she didn't lie about deleting emails? >> i never sent classified emails. >> you asked me about deleting emails. >> she lied about sending classified emails. >> no, no, no. number one, number two, with respect to the conversation with her daughter, if you remember what was said in the testimony, it was that there was an -- this was an ongoing event, obviously, right? things were evolving -- >> why did she first say one and then the other? >> one of the things she said to her daughter including some of the comments made by susan rice was relative to information that they were just getting, but not settled on. it was an evolving event and these were conversations -- >> what about an event that evolved about not sending classified email and she ought to have known.
5:27 pm
why was she so willing to lie when directly asked several times on this question? >> i think it was very clear in the way the secretary conducted herself at the benghazi hearings and the degree to which those ended up as a show of really no new evidence of any wrongdoing. it shows she was not lying, and again, i want to say tomorrow at the hearing when the fbi director is there. tara raises a very good point about will they go too far again, and what i believe will happen regardless of how the congress members conduct themselves, within the appropriate way or they go out of their way to attack a dignified, highly regarded public servant, donald trump will go out of his way to be outrageous again. >> she shouldn't be charged and you should accept the fact that he basically said what we all know is that she lied about this. >> the words lied and never -- >> that was -- don't put words in such a distinguished public
5:28 pm
servant's mouth. let's not forget, joe, wait! let's not forget, donald trump just yesterday raised the specter that the fbi director, a man who has taken on republicans and democrats with clear, you know, patriotic focus, that he had made this decision because he was being coerced into staying on as the fbi director. that's what will happen. you have donald trump that will act in a way that is disrespectful, un-american. >> and we will take a quick break and talk more about this coming up because clearly, there is a lot to discuss right now. there is also more to discuss about hillary clinton and her day to day. she went to atlantic city to talk about donald trump and his businesses in atlantic city. failed businesses and she gave a scathing speech and she stood in front of a fading trump name and his latest casino and what hillary clinton told the american people and what james comey told the american people. that's next.

5:32 pm
hillary clinton was in atlantic city today.
5:33 pm
she did not answer questionser give any explanation about the email story and what the fbi director has said about her practices as secretary of state. instead, she hammered donald trump's business failures in atlantic city and warned essentially that a president trump is a gamble the country could not afford. on the boardwalk in front of a trump plaza casino she talked about multiple bankrupties, stiffing contractors and job losses during his stint running casinos there. >> when this casino collapsed because of how badly he managed it, hundreds of people lost their jobs. shareholders were wiped out. lenders lost money. contractors, many of them small businesses took heavy losses and many themselves went bust. but donald trump, he walked away with millions. and here's what he says about the whole experience. he actually brags about it. atlantic city was a very good
5:34 pm
cash cow for me for a long time. the money i took out of there was incredible. >> jeff zeleny joins me now. what else was she saying about trump and his business record and why? >> reporter: it was song and verse about the long business record of donald trump, particularly here in atlantic city. it certainly has seen its better days and donald trump is not to plame for all of the economic issues of atlantic city, but he certainly has bankruptcies in his history and record history. she came directly to the heart of the boardwalk here and literally turned behind her and looked at the sign where trump plaza used to say. her point here is this. he got rich. other people did not. that is her whole anthem of her campaign here. she believes that he is trying to, you know, defraud and mislead working-class voters across america so she's trying to at every turn get them to pay a little bit more attention here
5:35 pm
to his actual business record. john, i got the sense that today it might be replayed again in the form of a tv commercial with clinton turning behind her and looking at that trump plaza, formerly trump plaza sign. >> one of the things that might give you that impression is the clinton campaign had cameras there filming which is how it was in the clinton campaign ad and it would focus that and not the emails. loretta lynch announced it would accept the director comey's recommendation. hillary clinton's not talking about it, but how is the campaign reacting? >> she's not talking about it publicly yet, john. she will at some point, we know. a tweet from her spokesman a short time ago said this. with the attorney general accepting director comey's recommendation, the case is resolved. no matter republican's attempts to continue playing politics. again, they say the case is closed. the case is resolved and legally, that may, in fact, be true, but politically speaking, this case goes on and in fact,
5:36 pm
it will go on tomorrow morning on capitol hill before the house oversight committee when director comey is answering these questions. one interesting thing. the clinton campaign has been working on house democrats to shape some of these questions here to get some context out and their side of the story out as well here. so the hearing is not just one-sided with republicans. it will be with democrats asking questions, as well. >> those will be fascinating tomorrow. jeff, you have other news and political news on the democratic side. the idea of possible democratic unity, and a possible joint appearance between secretary clinton and bernie sanders next week? >> we are learning that tonight. there is a potential meeting next tuesday in new hampshire with hillary clinton and bernie sanders. the -- behind the scenes they've been working on this for quite some time and the details aren't yet worked out. they're holding out hope for a couple of more things and the outcome of a platform meeting, a democratic platform meeting this weekend in orlando, if that goes well, if the sanders campaign gets more things that it's been
5:37 pm
asking for, they believe that he will appear on tuesday in new hampshire and will, in fact, endorse her. if things don't go well he may not hear. finally, this is coming together. patience is really running thin on some democrats who want to get on with this. she's already appeared with the president, of course, and the vice president come friday, but they want to get this out of the way before the democratic convention which is really just slightly under three weeks away, john. >> jeff zeleny, thanks so much. as you heard there, secretary clinton talked about the property as a great investment and always rigged it, she said so he got paid no matter how badly the company performed. she's been digging into trump's business history. this is what she found with one rub of the genie's lamp, donald trump became the self-proclaimed king of atlantic city. ♪ ♪ >> it was april 1990 when trump
5:38 pm
opened his third casino in atlantic city, the trump taj mahal to extravagant fanfare and his signature bravado. >> they talked about a million dollars a day. i think, bucky, we've done that in the first few hours. >> within days, trump's new trophy was tarnished. it almost immediately began losing money, but you wouldn't have known it from what trump was saying publicly. he talked to larry king less than three weeks after the opening. >> we've broken every record and we're seeing numbers nobody's ever seen before. it's a great building. >> trump's boasts didn't stop the alarm bells from sounding at the casino control commission. in the summer of 1990 the commission issued an internal report flagging the fact that several of trump's atlantic city casinos were generating an insufficient level of cash flow, pushing the trump organization toward complete financial collapse. >> he didn't run a company that served atlantic city well. he didn't run a company that served investors well. he didn't run a company that served its employees well. he left a lot of damage in his
5:39 pm
wake. >> tim o'brien documented trump's financial woes for years as a reporter for "the new york times." >> the reality is he got too big to fail and atlantic city couldn't afford to let him run aground because he'd gotten control of such a big part of the market. >> reporter: the financial fallout was felt throughout trump's properties. the castle casino owed $20 million to bond holders in 1909 and as the deadline on that approached, gaming officials expressed concern to the casino control commission about a ripple effect. the casino considered pulling trump's gaming license and feared an industrywide collapse. the commission instead approved a $65 million bailout, the money coming from nine banks. it also put a strict limit on trump's personal spending, budgeting him $450,000 a month for the first year with decreasing amounts for the next five years. ever the outward optimist, donald trump touted the bailout as a win. >> we had a great victory.
5:40 pm
i'm happy as hell. >> the casino position lachlted the position it was forced into. >> if you have those casinos going out eventually some people will relocate to other casinos and not the entire workforce which constitutes a drain, i would think, economically on atlantic city. >> in 1991, one year after it opened the taj mahal filed for bankruptcy, and trump's other properes in atlantic city followed suit. despite those failures some still credit donald trump for infusing atlantic city with the energy to make it the east coast gambling destination in the '90s. augie renna says trump's early years were the best days here. renna spent four and a half years working at the trump plaza, working as the head of player development. >> he was an excellent leader and an excellent boss. he picks the very best, most knowledgeable and most talented people. >> donald trump defends his bullish business ways. >> i had the good sense, and i've gotten a lot of credit in the financial pages, seven years ago i left atlantic city before

>> as we've been reporting hillary clinton today attacked one of donald trump's favorite bragging points, his business dealings. clinton slammed trump's bankruptcies and his failure to pay contractors and the jobs that were lost during his attempt to build a casino empire. trump responded at a rally in ohio just a short time ago and imitated hillary clinton talking about him. >> donald trump is a bad person. donald trump made a lot of money in atlantic city, but he hurt the little people. she calls it the little people. he hurt the little people. i didn't. i made a lot of money and government, what they did. did you see that sham? i left seven years ago. >> back now with our panel. patrick heel, the term swift boating comes to mind which in political terms means go after
5:46 pm
your opponent's perceived strengths. one of his perceived strengths is a businessman and made a lot of money so the clinton campaign is hitting him on his business practices. how far can they go with this? >> they think they can go far. it was a picture-perfect so well-executed campaign for hillary. this is what they do, when the message is bad like with the fbi they go to atlantic city. they stand right in front of that -- of that image and see that trump faded sign and they want to push it just like barack obama planned to go after mitt romney as much as he could about the down sizing of bain, the layoff of workers and this hits people where they live and they bring the message to the undecided voters of pennsylvania, ohio and michigan where donald trump is hoping to make serious inroads and this is a guy who is a billionaire who lives in a penthouse apartment and puts people out of work, cashed out and took the money
5:47 pm
away and it's a powerful argument. the thing is donald trump has a powerful counter argument about a different narrative about her trust, but he doesn't make it in the same way that she can execute that is so clearly and cleanly. >> as the woman here. >> proudly. >> they hit donald trump on this. do you think they did it less effectively than hillary clinton? >> obviously, they lost. i said for months that they needed to go after his business record and make it more human and bring the human interest stories into this so people could see and hear the actual words and rhetoric that donald trump used in the '80s and '90s to get these casinos and the promises that he made that ended up being completely untrue, and compare that to the same language that he's using and making promises to the american people which will turn out to be untrue also. atlantic city is a microcosm of the trump campaign right now. for example, you know, i hate to
5:48 pm
agree with hillary clinton. it pains me, but she's 100% right on his business record there. not only did he put people out of work, he put people out of their homes with eminent domain. he lied to the gaming commission down there to the point that they were, like, we don't really believe what you're saying. they almost didn't approve things. his father came in and signed off on the leases from the mafia, by the way. they didn't get into the stories about his ties to the mob in atlantic city, by the way. >> alleged. >> they didn't talk about the fact that they fined his casinos for work discrimination to appease an alleged mafia figure. didn't talk about how he wanted to take over one of the casinos there and promised the gaming commission. let me take over because what happened when he took over? it went bankrupt in a year. >> you must have a different view. >> i suggest you take a look at it. >> no, no, no. it's fact and not conspiracy.
5:49 pm
>> the atlantic city argument is that people walk down the streets of manhattan and they look up and they see trump towers. they go to the beach in florida and they see mar-a-lago. i went to las vegas and there is trump tower. he has a successful business. he has 500 businesses and one went wrong in atlantic city -- >> five. >> it is a rather good record. he's created a $10 billion enterprise. >> that's not documented. >> and no one has done that. hillary clinton has employed precisely zero. that is the problem with that argument and it's a losing one. >> he lied and schemed and tell that to the people he promised jobs to that didn't get them. tell them to the people in indiana when he promised another riverboat casino there and he would have the thousands of jobs for the local workforce there and none of that came to fruition. tell that to the cabinet makers in atlantic city that worked for him because they believe in the trump name whose family business went out of business because donald trump did not pay them because one of his bankruptcies tell that to the piano salesman
5:50 pm
who was intimidated paying 70 cents on the dollar because donald trump said he wasn't going to pay him what he wanted. that's real. >> tara, i assume you haven't seen the contracts >> they're in the bankruptcy. they're in the bankruptcy. >> have you seen them? >> yes, i have. i've seen the bankruptcies. >> you haven't sustain contracts. >> so those people are lying? >> trump did not create a $10 billion enterprise by not paying people. >> keep, how did all this get in front of voters? hillary clinton and her campaign and her super pac spent millions and millions of dollars buying tv air time in battle ground states. they're going to flood the airwaves with commercials like the one that jeff described. and donald trump is just so far behind on this. to come one the counter argument as strong as she is making it.
5:51 pm
>> we have to take a break. he does have new money in the bank. $26 million for his campaign. $25 from the republican party. maybe he will go on the air with a message. we are going to take a quick break. we have some breaking news to discuss. cnn has obtained new video of a police shooting in baton rouge. the images the clearest yet of the final moments of this fatal encounter.

deadly shooting in baton rouge, louisiana. these are extremely graphic. if there are children watching, this would be a good time to have them step away. the first you'll see pinned to the ground is a man named alton sterling. [ yelling ] [ bleep ]. >> this is not the only video of the shooting. previous video showed mr. sterling being tackled before the shots were fired. look at this.
5:56 pm
>> get on the ground! get on the ground! [ bleep ] [ yelling ] [ bleep ] oh! >> you do seem to hear someone shout he's got a gun before the police officer opened fire. it has sparked outrage and now an investigation. martin? from what we know, what led up to the moment we just saw.
5:57 pm
>> reporter: what led up to it according to authorities, let me tell you, we're outside the triple s mart. this is where all of this happened. a very large crowd on hand like there was last night. tonight there are a number of things going on. a prayer vigil. perhaps you can hear singing behind me. the crowd and the traffic. it has all been very peaceful and the calls have continued to be for people to maintainer to. a lot of people are gathering just to see what happens next. as to your question, it was a phone call, according to authorities, that came into 911 on that monday night that reported a man wearing a red shirt, who apparently had acosted the caller with a gun, threatening him stoex man came in of a man at this food mart threatening people with a gun. that's what police say they were told and that's the attitude they had when they arrived. >> all right. and sterling's family, the man
5:58 pm
who was killed. they spoke out today. what do they have to say? >> well, they believe this is murder. murder double by the police. they don't believe that there was any justification, either for the action that the authorities took, or even for some of the evidence that the police say they have. there are family member who's don't believe he has a gun. never said that he had a gun. he did talk about needing protection in the neighborhood but his mother said she recommended a knife. they didn't say there was a gun. that's one of the things in great dispute. the family says the video shows and the store owner backs up, that he was not being aggressive and there was no gun in his hands at the time that the police arrived. >> no gun in his hands but maybe in his possession. that's what is in dispute. the officers involved. what's the latest? >> well, they're on administrative leave. that is the standard practice here. and now it is being told that
5:59 pm
there has been an initial interview done with them. this is in keeping with actually had a is the law in the state of louisiana, and in baton rouge. if officers are involved in any kind of shooting like this, there is an immediate interview that is done of them by detectives. so that's taken place. it took place before the federal authorities got involved. both those officers say they believe their actions are justifiable. we should point out that kind of evidence, those kinds of statements are not admissible. it is merely for police understanding of what happened. >> all right. in front of peaceful protests there. thanks so much. we have lots more to discuss in this two-hour edition of "360." a busy day and night on the campaign trail. hillary clinton and donald trump hammering each other. plus the list for a running mate for trump just got a little shorter. bob corker out of consideration. what is up with that? o gluten,
