11:00 am
to build a wall. they cleared the way for the government to spend $2.5 billion. it lets the administration tap into money while a lower court decides if the president had the power to divert funds. boris sanchez is joining us from the white house. is this victory lap a bit premature. >> you could see it that way. this is a victory for the white house, but it comes with a caveat. they weighed in on whether it was appropriate for the white house to use this money. in other words, the supreme court ultimately decided to unfreeze these funds as the bigger case makes its way through the lower course. the supreme court could decide that it's inappropriate for president trump to use these military funds to build his
11:01 am
long-promised border wall. president trump is celebrating anyway. the president writing, quote, big victory on the wall. the united states supreme court overturns lower court injunction, allows border wall to proceed. big win for border security and the rule of law. no question, this is a win for the white house. albeit a temporary one because so far it hasn't been determined whether the president can use that money or not in the long term, fred. >> all right. and then, boris, there has been swift reaction to the president's twitter attack on elijah cummings. the president writing the district is a disgusting rat-infested mess. if he spent more time in baltimore, maybe he could ep clean up this disgusting place. that coming from the president's twitter. talk to me about the reaction not just from cummings but from
11:02 am
the house speaker and other members of congress. >> that's right. there are obviously questions about race baiting and a president speaking this way about a member of congress and about a community that in which a diverse group of people live, not only ethnically, but in terms of income. representative cummings fired back on twitter. mr. president, i go home to my district daily, each morning i wake up and go and fight for my neighbors. it is my constitutional duty to conduct oversight of the executive branch, but it's my moral duty to fight for my constituents. nancy pelosi wrote that elijah cummings is a champion for the country. she writes a hashtag, elijah
11:03 am
cummings is a patriot. this attack from president trump coming just a few days after elijah cummings was on the house oversight committee challenging officials on immigration. the president not taking well to this and this is how he lashes out, fred. >> boris, thank you so much. with me right now, katelyn diggerson, and laura lopez. good to see you both. so, you know, laura, let's talk just briefly, you know, about the president's twitter rant, how he wants to spent time doing this, singling out, you know, a leader of congress who so many have said is an advocate for so many and the president would take it to these levels using
11:04 am
the word "infestation" all that. what's this all about? >> so he does this because he knows it riles up his base. this is a pattern with president trump. he has said this about not only cummings but four elected women of color in tweets just a few weeks ago saying they could go back to countries from which they came when actually three of those women -- all of them are american citizens, but three of them were born in the united states which then elicited a "send her back" chant at his rally. he very much whether it's from immigration or these tweets about cummings is opening to make the 2020 election about racial identity which is something he did as well in 2016. >> and, katelyn, you don't want to dignify the president's tweet
11:05 am
with talking about it. but we need to talk about it this is the leader of a country making disparaging remarks about fellow members of this country. people have choices to make. >> it's unfortunate to have to have this conversation at all. but it's important to point out that the president is drawing from an age-old playbook, if you will, over how to invoke race-based smear campaigns. he's done it in campaign rallies, he did it after protesting in charlottesville, it's not a mystery, but it is important to point out that it's a strategic move. it's not an accident that words like infestation, rats and rodents are being invoked. it's something we've seen in history and he's repeating that now. >> let's talk about this supreme court decision allowing the
11:06 am
president at least temporarily, you know, to use u.s. military money for his wall project and this really helps, laura, the president revive his mantra during the 2016, build the wall, build the wall, and now he's able to step it up a notch. how advantageous might it be for the president. >> this is something that the president is going to be talking about nonstop. immigration is going to be a huge policy topic for him. while he may have had a small victory when it comes to being able to use these funds in the immediate sense to try to get the ball rolling on building a wall, one of his big promises during the 2020 election is that mexico would pay for the wall. and that's the case for the victory he's claiming from the supreme court -- >> might his supporters have forgotten about the that. >> potentially, although, i find
11:07 am
it surprising that they would have given it was one of his biggest claims during the 2016 campaign. but this money is coming from military personnel and from training programs. >> this ruling might give the president, you know, temporary license to use that money because there's still a lower court that has to decide whether the president did a good job establishing that this was a national security issue, a national emergency in which to have this wall built. katelyn, the president touting yesterday this agreement with guatemala that it would act as a place in which migrants could stay if they were speaking asylum. but it's still unclear the details, you know, of this arrangement with guatemala. where does this take the president in his direction of, you know, securing the border, or using methods, perhaps, even
11:08 am
this plan as a deterrent for those seeking asylum. >> sure. i can we can think about actually both of these, what we're calling wins t supreme court's decision on a border wall and this what's known as a safe third-country agreement with guatemala as symbolic victories for the president but ones that have down sides. i've covered immigration for a long time. there is consensus among federal enforcement officials that a wall is not necessary to decrease the already lowering numbers of border crossings and when you look at the agreement made with guatemala, this is one to require central americans to apply for asylum in guatemala first before they can come to the united states. but, fred, the majority of people who are seekin asylum in the united states right now are from guatemala. so the idea that they might find a safe haven in guatemala is
11:09 am
really hard to understand. it's also important to mention that this agreement that the guatemalan government made flies in the face of a recent decision there that determined the guatemalan president could not sign an agreement with the united states government would approval from the guatemalan congress. they've gone ahead and done so anyway. these are symbolic wins for the president, but when you look at the numbers and the way the immigration system is going to be affected they don't make sense or follow along with what experts a exper experts are suggesting. >> what would be the incentive for guatemala to engage in plan like this who would be trying to seek asylum in the u.s. would then make guatemala home if not temporary, then permanently. >> right. there have been questions about
11:10 am
trump placing pressure on these latin american countries whether by tariffs or different agreements that they could potentially have. and so the increased pressure from the administration on trying to come to the table on these agreements i think is what may be forced guatemala's hand. of course, katelyn has covered this much more extensively and she may have more details on that. >> the united states is an important trade partner for guatemala. mexico, central america rely on the united states government in order to trade, in order to support their own economies. and so that's why now, seen the government move forward with this agreement. that's why you've seen the government of mexico agree to crack down on asylum seekers who are crossing through that country because the united states has a lot of power over the economies of these places and president trump is using that to try to achieve his own goals even if it means keeping asylum seekers out of the united states.
11:11 am

11:15 am
welcome back. as president trump openly feuds with house democrats, the number of them calling for impeachment is growing. now at 101. jerry nadler escalating the fight saying he's going to court to try to enforce a subpoena for former white house counsel don mcgahn that could prove to be a big step into launching an impeachment inquiry. >> we are continuing an investigation of the president's malfeasances and we will do what -- and we will considr what we have to consider including whether we should recommend articles of impeachment to the house. that's the job of our committee. we may decide to recommend articles of impeachment at some point, we may not. >> i'm joined by michael zeldin.
11:16 am
nadler asking a federal judge to release mueller's grand jury materials. what kind of material would be in there to help support any kind of impeachment inquiry? >> all of the underlying witness testimony is what is contained within the grand jury that nadler wants to see. it's a way of getting the testimony of witnesses that the white house has blocked from appearing before his committee so it's a back-doorway to get to see what they said directly. >> congress has the sworn duty, right, of impeachment as a process of holding the president accountable. but nadler is circumventing the progress. could that backfire? is there any real difference there even? >> i like to think of what nadler is saying or interpret what nadler is saying.
11:17 am
he's conducting a preliminary inquiry to determine whether or not a full impeachment hearing and articles of impeachment are warranted. he's taking the preliminary steps to zbagather the informat he needs. whether it could backfire is a political question and we'll have to see whether the american people are tired of this or the mueller testimony still, you know, spurs them to want to know more. >> and in fact, house speaker nancy pelosi is saying essentially wait, gather more information, that it is vital to do so. without grand jury materials or any kind of subpoena enforcement, is there another route in which to get information, the kind of information that pelosi or even nadler would be talking about? >> it's going to require court assistance for that to happen. the president has asserted
11:18 am
executive privilege and other immunities for these witnesses that have been called. congress and others have sought relief from that objection and if the courts comply, then they'll get that information that way. otherwise if the stonewalling continues and the grand jury material is not presented, then nadler may have to open a full, you know, impeachment proceeding in order to give the committee more rights to get this information. because once you open up a full impeachment -- call it an impeachment inquiry, your rights to gather information expand. >> michael zeldin, thank you so much. >> thanks, fred. still ahead, a chaotic scene in south korea. a nightclub balcony collapses. details right after this.

welcome back. we're following this developing news in hong kong where anti-government protests are turning increasingly violent. police in riot gear are launching tear gas at protestors
11:23 am
who were marching against last weekend's violence. they confronted a group as the demonstrators emptied fire es es ting wisher. >> police had arrived, they were telling us to move on. it was really just the media. we came up the escalators and this is where inside the train station which is where the attacks last sunday took place were a few hundred protestors, probably about 100 media and 150 hard-core protestors. we were standing there, waiting to do the live shot with you and suddenly tactical police ran up the stairs, charged at not just
11:24 am
protestors, but also at the media, they hit our security guard with a baton and they were just -- they were just hitting people, hitting people left, right and center. it was absolute chaos. everybody surrounded them and i guess there was this feeling of what are you doing? why are you behaving this way? particularly considering we've been here since 3:00 this afternoon and things have been quite orderly with the police. they move in a line. they beat their shields. they come up with a sign, i should say, telling protestors they're going to disperse tear gas. now they're cornered inside this station, the police run up these elevators and just hitting
11:25 am
people. it was absolute pandemonium. it was nothing that we have ever witnessed before. and the protestors as well. they despis the police after the brutality that happened on the first of july after the attacks that took place here last sunday, it took police more than 40 minutes to respond. and then for these police to charge protestors and the press. we are wearing bibs. i'm not quite sure what is happening now. okay. it looks like they are -- there's an older man asking protestors to go home, to go home. that is what he is saying. he's asking people to go home. certainly from some of the protestors that we've spoken to -- that's right frchlt the protestors we have spoken to, they can't believe that the police behave this way. >> thank you so much for your reporting out of hong kong. a championship celebration
11:26 am
quickly turned to chaos for the u.s. water polo team. four players from the men and women's teams were injured last night when a balcony at a nightclub collapsed. those athletes did not get seriously injured, but this was a deadly accident. >> we shouldn't lose sight of the fact that sadly two people did die in the incident. at the end of competition, it would be traditional for athletes to go out and enjoy a night out and let your hair down. and that's what was happening here. they were celebrating a third straight title for the women's
11:27 am
polo team beating spain in the showdown there. but what happened here was that there were injuries to four athletes in total. i want to quickly run through them. we can put names on them as well. first up, kaylee gillcrest, she suffered a laceration to her leg, her teammate, she suffered injuries along with the men -- the water polo players there, johnny hooper and ben hallick they were also hurt. but they're not serious injuries. we got a statement as well from the u.s. federation for that sort confirming that incident. i want to get to this, all usa water polo athletes are safe and accounted for. thoughts are with all of those as well. there were other countries as
11:28 am
well including new zealand and australia and happy to report there that no injuries, no serious injuries to those athletes. >> this was as simple as just the building, a portion of it, just compromised. >> yes. >> and collapsed. >> yeah. the balcony up above, reports indicate that an investigation is ongoing. we'll continue through the weekend to try to ascertain what happened in that nightclub. as for the u.s. teams, next order of business for them, lima peru for the pan american games. we have the opening ceremony to that on friday. that's now officially under way. they're going to be beginning competition there august the 4th. again, it will be interesting to see. are we going to be seeing those athletes competing -- >> with injuries -- >> we're watching that very closely. next year it's the really big one, the summer games, the
11:29 am
olympics in tokyo, japan. >> and hopefully everybody is ready for that one. 2020 candidates preparing for round two of the debates. it's three days away. what they need to do to break away from the crowded field, next. ouldn't be at my best for ily. in only 8 weeks with mavyret, i was cured and left those doubts behind. i faced reminders of my hep c every day. but in only 8 weeks with mavyret, i was cured. even hanging with friends i worried about my hep c. but in only 8 weeks with mavyret, i was cured. mavyret is the only 8-week cure for all common types of hep c. before starting mavyret your doctor will test if you've had hepatitis b which may flare up and cause serious liver problems during and after treatment. tell your doctor if you've had hepatitis b, a liver or kidney transplant, other liver problems, hiv-1, or other medical conditions, and all medicines you take

11:33 am
are canvassing across the country making their cases to voters. and among them, senator elizabeth warren who is hosting two events in new hampshire this afternoon. she'll take part in a town hall. cnn political reporter rebecca buck is in new hampshire. >> reporter: we're here in new hampshire with elizabeth warren. it's her first of two campaign spots today on this predebate weekend. she's trying to carry this momentum all the way to detroit on tuesday night when she's going to be sharing the stage with bernie sanders. they're first meeting on the same stage in race. we're waiting to see will elizabeth warren try to start trying to draw contrast to bernie sanders, will she stick to her core message on the debate stage. i want to bring in rob, he's a
11:34 am
community organizer. he isn't supporting a candidate in the race but i would like to get your take on what you want to see from elizabeth warren in this debate on tuesday. >> i think the key question is the difference between the public option and medicare for all. and if she can explain what i have yet to here from anybody who favors medicare for all explains exactly what would happen in the first year of that transition from private health care to medicare for all and i think it's a very difficult sale. >> what do you think she should do with bernie sanders on that stage? do you think it's important that she draw contrast with sanders on policies, style, or do you think she should stick to her own policy. >> i think she should stick to her own policy and platform. she's got maybe the best
11:35 am
organization in new hampshire and she's setting out to have -- buy coffee for every voter in new hampshire and she's well on the way to doing that. she's doing just fine. i think she should stay out of interparty squabbles and tell us what she plans to do. >> thank you so much. of course we will be watching the debate. elizabeth warren hit a very important milestone this week in her campaign, meeting one million donations for the very first time, a huge number for her campaign, reflecting the enthusiasm that we're seeing in the polling and on the campaign trail. the question, of course, heading into detroit is will elizabeth warren be able to build and continue that momentum. we're going to see here today the approach she's taking, the themes she's hitting, the message we might hear from her later this weekend. fred? >> thank you so much. some of the candidates out on the campaign trail honing their messages today as they prepare to face off in the
11:36 am
debates. as gloria borger explains, for those who don't find a way to stand out, it could mean the end of a campaign. snoelt ♪ ♪ >> at his kickoff rally, eric swalwell was center stage. but at the first primary debate, he was nearly off the stage. >> walking out is -- that is really intimidating. i'm pointing, i'm waving and you feel like you're completely vulnerable and everybody is looking at you. >> that debate would be his last. >> today ends our presidential campaign. >> our polling stayed flat. i didn't go anywhere. >> remaining at less than 1%. and as the field lines up for the two cnn debates, the pressure is really on, because in the fall, securing podium spotting will be twice as hard.
11:37 am
so detroit could be the end of the trail. >> maybe 12, 13 candidates, there's not going to be another shot after this. not qualifying for the next debate is a death sentence. >> there's a lot of ways to screw up at a debate. what's essential is to think about what can i do so there won't be a total disaster here. >> mccain attack phrases, bladly attack praises. >> stewart has prepped republican candidates from george w. bush and dick cheney to mitt rockny. >> before a debate, you look at your polling and say, who do i want to talk to? >> what really drives coverage in these debates is friction. it is taking someone on. >> as kamala harris did, attacking joe biden's record on bussing. >> there was a little girl in california who was part of the
11:38 am
second class to integrate her public schools and she was bussed to school every day and that little girl was me. >> she's defined herself and she got her bio in. you like that person and you're pulling for that person. >> i didn't seem contrived -- >> there's a difference between prepared and contrived. i think prepared is you've thought about it. she's comfortable talking about race and it shows. >> biden was uncomfortable being challenged in that way and that shows too. >> you walk in a room, people usually applaud and you're not used to having somebody get in your face. >> if you were advising joe biden right now, what would you tell him to do? >> be on offense. be on offense. you are there to win votes. you are not there to defend your lead. >> that's fine if you're biden or if you're elizabeth warren and bernie sanders fighting over many of the same voters. but if you're not a name-brand candidate, breaking out can be
11:39 am
hard to do. >> this other alternatives up there that are acceptable. there's this question like, why are you on the shelf? do we really need eight variations of barbecue potato chips? >> when you're speaking, you feel the glare of the moderators looking at you like you're not a top-tier person. >> you had five minutes? >> four minutes, 45 seconds. >> who's counting? what can you do really in that amount of time? >> have a moment that gets replayed. >> we're going to solve the issues of climate chaos, pass the torch. if we're going to end gun violence for families, pass the torch. >> do you think you got a little too torchy there? >> i thought all of these issues, someone who's worked on gun violence, many of them are
11:40 am
generational. >> did it look a little contrived? >> maybe i could have done one fewer torch. >> in these debates, preparation can be everything. >> they get into a lifeline. it's them, the camera, the -- >> no phone a friend? >> and they're going to sink or swim. this is an important test in the process. >> after all of that studying and rehearsals, how does it feel backstage when your candidate goes off script? >> it's a very special feeling when you're standing there watching the television and you're thinking, what are they doing? that is not what we said, right? on the other hand i will say, as a campaign manager, there is no way for you to know what it is like. >> public failure is never easy, but with 20 candidates, it's more than likely. >> you have to be willing, first of all, to admit that you're probably going to lose and be willing to lose and stand for something. you can try too hard running for
11:41 am
president and it will always come back and bite you. >> so it's a fine line for every candidate on stage, impress, but don't look like you're trying too hard, you know, fred, just be yourself. >> so fascinating. thank you, appreciate it. don't miss two big nights of the debates, this tuesday and wednesday, live from detroit. it all starts at 8:00 each night on cnn. up next, a massive man hunt under way in canada. police say the killers could be getting help from unsuspecting people. more, right after this. can't see what it is what is that? that's a blazer? that's a chevy blazer? aww, this is dope. this thing is beautiful. i love the lights. oh man, it's got a mean face on it. it looks like a piece of candy. look at the interior. this is nice. this is my sexy mom car. i would feel like a cool dad.

about one month of the company's revenue. when word of this fine came down a few weeks ago, facebook's stock price went up. so i think, you know, they really did get away with quite a lot here. and it was quite a serious breach of trust. there was the camera bridge analytica scandal, but they were asking users for their phone numbers to help them as a security feature, but they were targeting users with advertising using their phone numbers as a result of that. >> how does this deal with facebook protect users from future privacy breaches? >> yes. there's quite a few mechanisms in the deal for that including that mark zuckerberg is going to have to certify that facebook is

the week that during the first democratic debate, there was a huge surge of interest in the u.s. in the days after that, gabbard's google ads account got suspended which means when you search her name, the campaign wanted to provide ads to say vote for gabbard. it was suspended for a few hours. google says it was a mistake. they say it was something more. >> all right. always good to see you. thank you so much. and thank you so much for joining me today. we'll have so many more straight ahead in newsroom. i'll see you again tomorrow. anni it's a win for all of us.
