3:02 pm
not a country built on hatred. we are not a country built on anger, on pettiness. we are not a bitter, angry, petty, bigoted people. >> reporter: that was aimed at trump. >> i have been doing it nine months, the other guys 35 years, boom, boom, boom. we are knocking them out like corn flakes. >> reporter: he says he will continue to battle. >> i am in for the distance as long as we have a viable path. i am competing to the end. >> reporter: he dualed with pro-trump supporters. >> indiana doesn't want you. >> you are entitled to your right. sir? america is a better country -- >> without you. >> thank you for those kind sentiments. let me point out, i have treated you respectly.
3:03 pm
>> reporter: cruz, his wife and carley fiorina are making ten stops tomorrow. some establishment opposition soften toward jump. they are finding unpledged and cruz delegates. he kissed off his gop critics saying he would prefer unity, but could do without it against clinton. >> i don't think it matters, but i think it would be nice to have the republican party come together. with that being said, i think i will win anyway. >> reporter: bobby knight has been running off. trump leads in polls by 9.3 points. if the results exceed that, trump could get close to a sweep. 27 delegates go three at a time to the winner in each of the nine districts. cruz tried getting it by -- carley fiorina would be his
3:04 pm
running mate. all of which has done little to boost him in the polls. if trump does win the hoosier state, across the country, his opponents know it could be hard to stop the developer. to that end, they recognize there's only one opportunity left, it comes a month from now, june 7th, the last day of primary voting in california where trump leads the polls there, too. >> you are in south bend. the former notre dame coach. >> reporter: lou holts. he's got coaches aplenty. in indiana, that matters a lot. >> donald trump will be on hannity. during that interview, trump tells sean, in the general election, he can win over cruz and kasich supporters, but democratic socialists as well. >> a lot of the young people with bernie sanders will come to my side. they want jobs.
3:05 pm
they see what's happening. bernie sanders and i agree on one thing, trade. the difference is i'll make great deals, he doesn't know what to do. he's a socialist, he doesn't know what to do. the people with bernie sanders, the young people, i believe they are going to vote for me. i think a lot of the people with hillary are going to vote for me. >> see the full interview with trump on "hannity" tonight at 10:00 p.m. eastern time. bernie sanders fights for indiana votes while hillary clinton looks ahead. she headed south and east of the hoosier state, hoping to mend fences with voters and dealing with another statement that has her in some hot water. senior political correspondent mike emanuel with the story from west virginia. >> reporter: hillary clinton is on a two-day swing trying to connect with rural, white working class voters. >> you have taken a huge hit. you know, it's something that i
3:06 pm
am really worried about because it's a ripple effect. it is december maiting communities. >> reporter: clinton is trying to clean up a mess she made in march with folks in coal country. >> i'm the only candidate which has a policy on how to bring economic opportunity, bringing renewable energy in in the coal country. we are going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business. >> reporter: west virginia senator was furious. he appeared with clinton and notes she has apologized. there are signs the residents here have not forgotten. clinton may have to apologize to native americans after the swipe to trump. >> i have a lot of experience dealing with men who get off the reservation in the way they behave. >> they took to twitter saying she meant no disrespect.
3:07 pm
they released their april fund raising numbers with clinton beating sanders $26.4 million to $25.8 million. it's a drop off from the $43 million he raised in march. he's taking a play from the clinton play book saying it is rigged. >> we have won, at this point, 45% of pledged delegates, but we have only earned 7% of superdelegates. so, in other words, the way the system works is you have establishment candidates who win virtually all of the superdelegates. >> reporter: sanders is promising drama for democrats in philadelphia in july. >> the convention will be a contested contest. >> reporter: clinton is now hinting at her husband's role if she is elected.
3:08 pm
sounds like the former president would serve as a manufacturing jobs renaissance czar in the white house to focus on putting people back to work. brett? >> mike, thank you. the virginia governor's plan to restore voting rights to felons won't happen without a fight. the state's republican lawmakers plan to file a lawsuit challenging terry mcauliffe's action allowing 200,000 convicted felons to vote in thov. they say it is a move to help hillary clinton get votes. mcauliffe says those who have served their time should get a second chance. the master mind behind the u.s. attacks was killed five years ago today. osama bin laden's death has not put to rest questions surrounding 28 pages of reports held around the terrorist attacks. the pages are a thorn in the side to the obama
3:09 pm
administration. as reported tonight, there are more calls for the 28 pages to remain classified. >> unco-ob rated, unvetted and inaccurate, the words cia director john brennan used to spill the 28 pages from the 9/11 report that some believe could shed light on saudi support for the 9/11 hijackers. >> they were fully investigated reviews. the preliminary review that put information in that tl that was not co-ob rated or vetted. >> reporter: former new jersey governor tom cane and former indiana congressman lee hamilton wrote, based on the evidence available to the commission when the commission issued the final report, we found no evidence that the saudi government as an institution or senior saudi officials individually funded al qaeda. it comes five years after osama bin laden was killed in a raid.
3:10 pm
even as the still classified remnants continue to cause political disruption for the white house. >> hiding the information as to the relationship between saudi arabia and the 9/11 hijackers has been the epitome -- >> the cover up has gone beyond cover up. it's aggressive deception. it's incredible it would take over 13 years to review 28 pages. >> reporter: white house officials say the president hasn't read the 28 pages but asked them to review the contents for possible release. >> the intelligence officials indicated they expektd to complete the process by the end of june and we'll look forward to their decision at that point. >> reporter: critics say, it's been long enough. >> if those 28 pages are showing a link, let's find out what it
3:11 pm
is and deal with it. >> reporter: they said the 28 pages contain information that is accurate and inaccurate. he added, interestingly, he was puzzled they are fighting so hard for their release. brett? >> kevin, thank you. news overseas now. we are weeks away from britain's vote on whether to stay or exit the european union. the question has been hotly contested among world leaders, including president obama. many britains felt should not have weighed in on the issue during his recent trip there. i'm joined by kate hope one of the leading campaigners. thanks for being here. >> pleasure to be here. >> for american who is have not been following this closely, what the driving the push? >> i think it's a democratic argument. we have an area between the 28
3:12 pm
countries. that's what people joined originally. what it's become now is really a move toward the political union. it's a bit like your trade agreement with mexico and canada. the american people wouldn't stand for our court in mexico to overrule what your courts said. they wouldn't stand for being told you can do this or you can do that. we feel that we want to be a free international trading country, again. goat back to our roots and of course that means close relations with the united states as we have always had. >> there was feeling that president obama overstepped during his trip. >> i'm not american, i don't blame president obama much. i blame david cameron. probably he was quite pleading with obama. he's concerned because the polls are looking at if it's going to be close. i think he thought obama coming
3:13 pm
and telling the british people we would go to the back of the cue, i don't think that's a word you use in america. our prime minister asked him to do it. interestingly enough, people liked him being there. it's nice to see the queen and visiting the palace and all of that. the polls didn't actually reflect. we didn't influence it. i think it's important that the american public understand this is not about breaking away from a relationship in the united states. we want to be like the americans, tread freely, be democratic, organize ourselves, not be subject to the over riding rule of 27 other countries. >> you mentioned the polls. we have a look at the economist as a con volation of the polls. you can see the line there, by the way, the president's visit. the blue line kind of takes a job down. it looks like it's essentially
3:14 pm
even right now. >> it's very, very even. i think it's all going to depend on your election, on turnout. we felt strongly ability leaving and we think it is the right thing to do. there is momentum behind us. the people that want to stay, it is the establishment, the institutions. they got it so wrong over the fact that when we didn't join the euro, we were told that, you know, the country would fall to pieces. they have all been proved wrong. i think this is going to be about the establishment, the leader's role in the party against the people who feel disillusioned. i feel confident it was a very good chance. >> how much is immigration driving this? >> of course, another thing that we have is over 500 million people for many of the other 27 countries come to the united
3:15 pm
kingdom. again, you wouldn't have that. you wouldn't allow them to walk in and come -- because you have a free trade agreement. what this is about is many people within europe wanting to get a closer union. they want a united states of europe. the united kingdom is in a country with a great history and past. we don't want to be part of the united states. we want to trade. we want to cooperate on security matters. we work very, very closely with the united states and nato. we would still be members of nato. a lot of international bodies. i's a win l/win for us. >> when you hear donald trump talk about immigration -- >> we are not against it. many of us are -- >> sure, illegal immigration, stopping it. >> every country has to have the right control of who comes into
3:16 pm
their own country. we don't have that at the moment in the united kingdom, you do in the united states. it's very, very important. >> warren buffett told people on friday, he wouldn't vote for him. he thinks it's not going to ruin the world if it does pass, but he thinks it would make great britain financially a step backward. >> i think he's wrong. i think he's very wrong on that. i think it will improve. we are already creating, as the united kingdom outside than inside. that won't continue and why we won't be able to increase our trade. it's about our country getting control back, becoming democratic. when we vote for politicians, put me and others into parliament, they want to know we can do what we say we are going to do. not be stopped by unelected commissioners who are failed politicians. >> thank you for your time. i know you are catching a flight back to london. >> it's been great.

marketplace, prompting more concern about the sustainability of the affordable care act. we have a check up on the president's signature. >> health insurance costs will rise again. >> too many sick people. that means costs go up. that's why we are seeing united pull out and seeing $650 million in lawsuits. that's why we are going to see rate hikes this fall. >> reporter: losing hundreds of millions of dollars annually offering obamacare plans, united health care, the nation's largest insurer is scaling back involvement in the government health exchange. in total, they have lost billions in obamacare. to adjust, experts say insurance companies will raise premiums again for 2017, as they have in previous years. one analyst says the obamacare market is developing. insurance companies will make money and premium wills

3:30 pm
exploded in baghdad, killing 18 and wounding 45. isis claimed three bombs in the last two days as they attack major cities. last month, 741 iraqis were killed. the month before that, over 1100. political unrest swept across the capital this weekend as hundreds of shia protesters stormed, accusing the government of inaction. they took over the hearts of parliament as the country veered toward instability. behind the protesters were the shiite cleric. the rad cleric, once a vocal supporter of attacks on the u.s. troops has been involved in the uprising that shreds the country. today, the state department denies the protests would affect the battle against the terrorist group, but acknowledge change
3:31 pm
was needed. >> the long term answer in iraq is, good governance. we have said that many, many times. that's the way to defeat die eesh. you have to have the government. >> reporter: once the events unfolded in baghdad, that good governance seen far away. behind the call of political change, many see the hand of iran. if the protesters get their way, than iran will have more influence in the country and the u.s. a lot less. that does not bode well for the fight against isis. brett? >> benjamin, thank you. more than 250 deaths reported in a week in syria's largest city as fighting there continues between the government and opposition. but, today, talk of progress toward stopping the bloodshed. we have the latest moves in the
3:32 pm
ongoing syrian civil war. >> reporter: after months of relative calm, the fighting in syria resumed and it's intensifying. in aleppo, civilians are caught in the cross fire. opposition groups say regime forces have bombed several hospitals killing more than 250 people in the last week. the assad regime is focusing all fire power on the key northern city, but denies targeting medical buildings. in damascus, the cease-fire is holding. today, the syrian government announced they were expanding the truce for an additional 48 hours. the latest round of violence comes as diplomats return to geneva to revise peace talks. john kerry said today, there are several proposals on the table. >> a lot of conferences taking place yesterday, the day before,
3:33 pm
today and we are getting closer to an understanding, but we have some work to do. that's why we are here. >> reporter: kerry stopped short of saying what the proposals were. the u.s.-led coalition launches air strikes against isis in both iraq and syria. insurgents are increasingly losing ground. they are still able to strike. for five years now, the international community held dozens of meetings and formed several military coalition. an end to the bloodshed in iraq and syria remains as distant as ever. brett? >> connor, thank you. indiana in the spotlight. are the candidates playing their cards right? our panel weighs in, next.

3:37 pm
indiana is facing a choice a very simple choice, between supporting a campaign based on
3:38 pm
yelling and screaming and cursing and insults versus unifieing behind a campaign that is a positive, optimistic forwards looking conservative campaign. i am in for the distance, as long as we have a viable path to victory. i am competing to the end. >> he has no road to victory. he can't win. he's the first person in the history of the united states who picked a running mate, carley, who picked a running mate. he picked a running mate, even though he has no chance to win. >> well, they are all talking about indiana. as we take a look at the primary there tomorrow, both on the republican and democratic side, 57 delegates up for grabs on the gop, 83 on the democratic side. as you look at the latest poll from the gop side of the race, donald trump in this poll, nbc wall street journal with a 15-point lead. the average, however, is
3:39 pm
tighter. there have been several polls that have been showing donald trump with momentum in recent days. we will look at the gop side, first. let's bring in the panel. laura ingram. charles krauthammer. is it over if cruz doesn't win in indiana? >> i think it is. this is the last chance t. polls had looked a lot tighter before. now they look closer. if donald trump beats him there and performs like the poll numbers say and win big in california, it's all done. it doesn't matter cruz lined up a lot of people that want him on the second ballot. >> i agree with mara. ted hates hearing this and thinks the media is against him. at one point reality sinks in.
3:40 pm
one wonders if ted cruz, he could turn it around and win tomorrow. who knows. say it's a five to ten point victory for trump, i don't know how you keep the narrative going that i'm winning and donald trump is not going to get to 1237. i have the grass roots. i mean, i think it becomes less and less credible. i don't know if he's thinking 2020 or down the road. i think he has an incredible political future regardless of what happens. maybe, at some point, it's time to think about that as you move forward in the race or not. >> he had a number of stops with the indiana governor, mike pence, who endorsed him. then a stop where he confronted a trump supporter/heckler. take a look. >> i'm running to be everyone's president. >> we don't want you. >> you are entitled to your view, sir. i will respect it. >> do the math. you asked kasich to drop out. it's your turn.
3:41 pm
take your words. >> i'm curious. when donald doesn't get to 1237 are you going to call for him to drop out? >> he's going to get more than 1237. >> that went on for, i think, eight or ten minutes he spent time with that trump supporter. >> i'm not sure it helps any candidate to be involved in that kind of exchange nfor that long. cruz is trying anything he can. he tried to coalition with kasich, that didn't work. he tried a vice president nominee. he tried a theme where he throws the kitchen sink campaign. he kind of lost the theme. it's hard to know what it is. what happened is after wisconsin, he did well in wisconsin, had momentum, then trump, with his instinct for the jugular, and for the tactical advantage realize zed he could change the narrative. cruz goes after delegates, perfectly, reasonably, legally,
3:42 pm
within the rules. any other candidate would have done it. trump understands it's the perfect way to strip cruz of his claim and status as it has outsider because the cruz defense is i'm playing by the rules as they exist remember, he ran has a guy who would not accept the establishment rules, would not accept the dictates of the higher ups. called the majority leader of the senate a liar. here he is arguing, i'm going by rules and trump says, the establishment has erected. >> on the democratic side, bernie sanders is talking about a rigged system. take a listen to sanders pitch. >> when we talk about a rigged system, it's also important to understand how the democratic convention works. we have won, at this point, 45% of pledged delegates, but we have only earned 7% of
3:43 pm
superdelegates. it makes it hard for insurgent candidacies like ours to win. she will need superdelegates to take her over the top at the convention in philadelphia. in other words, the convention will be a contested contest. >> okay. take a look at the rcp average in indiana. it is tighter there. hillary clinton holds a slight lead in the average polls. contested convention. >> that's the first time i have heard that. that generally means no one has enough to get enough to get the nomination on the first ballot. superdelegates vote on the first ballot, she will get that. he might win in indiana, by the way. the internal polls have it much, much closer than it is now. even if hillary clinton lost all the remaining primaries by 20 points each, she still comes in the winner. >> she's won 23 states. if he wins indiana, he's won 18.
3:44 pm
>> she's way ahead of him, 2.6 million popular votes ahead of him. >> trump is more than that for cruz. >> it's hard to make the case this is a rigged system. >> i think something else is going on here. i think he's trying to have an impact on the platform. go with the trade deals, bernie sanders trying to do the foe, democratic thing. trump is making pitches to the bernie sanders voters. i think you are going to start seeing interesting movement to say, look, bernie, you don't like the trade deals, your only chance of not having the deals is to help me knock off hillary clinton or at least push for the platform in the democratic party not to go forward with the ttp. if bernie doesn't want the deals, hillary gets in. they are going to push it through. >> your point, hillary clinton has been talking about president
3:45 pm
obama. president obama has an op-ed in the "washington post" about tpp. >> this is the last bucket list item. he doesn't want to be embarrassed with the 17 countries or so, 5,500 pages, even some in gop leadership are surprised at the triggers in this partnership. most of them haven't read it. it gives countries like indonesia the ability to come to the united states, buy a u.s. corporation, bring their own employees with them. that's chapter ten. if you care about u.s. sovereignty, a deal like this is going to be another raw deal for the people. >> bernie sanders stays in? >> yeah. what else is he going to do? if you are in that long and he's in for a cause, i think he knew long ago, he wasn't going to be the nominee. he campaigned because he believed in a cause. he's the man of a left. he believes in democratic socialism and recently arrived as a democrat in the first
3:46 pm
place. he's in because he wants to leave a legacy. that will be the strength of his campaign, the organization he puts together and the cohort of people who support him who carry it on. he wants to have a say. assuming the democrats win, will carry on the legacy in the future. that's what he cares about. >> jan sanders asked about the fbi investigation, said it would be nice if the fbi moved it along. >> you know, this is one clinton campaign official said to me, well, he's kind of nice in the morning, but by the afternoon, it's a different tune. the sanders campaign has been doing two things at once. talking about defeating donald trump in the fall, unifying the party, then you hear things like that. maybe there's regret they didn't go after the e-mails earlier. >> it's a little late. >> for sure. next up, the fight over those 28 pages. hey, need fast heartburn relief?

3:51 pm
inaccurate. >> is there any reason why the president would not have read those pages you have said previously? he was generally aware. then you said he was briefed on them. why not read them? >> the president obviously reads a lot of material on a day-to-day waives. i'm not sure he felt it was necessary to read those 28 pages. >> the white house today on this controversy 28 pages in a congressional report about 9/11. that some say may show ties to saudi arabia. the royal family, someone in saudi arabia financing at least one or several of the hijackers of 9/11. this, of course, almost 15 years after 9/11. five years to the day after usama bin laden has been killed. and the former chairman of the select committee on intelligence bob graham saying it is incredible that it would take over 13 years to review over 28 pages. back with the panel. charles? >> well, it depends on whether what john brennan

said is true or not. if is a corroboration of material some true some not. all read by the 9/11 commission. and they decided that not be released. then it might injure us if it gets published. i think if that's not the case, we should obviously put it out even if it is going to hurt our relations. but, i mean recommendation the larger story is we have always known that saudi arabia is ultimately responsible for 9/11. the with a hab buy ideology spread all over the world, the that drosses, everything that has come out of it. this was a tiny minority sect of islam which has become world wild and dominant precisely because of the money, influence and occupation of saudi arabia in its spread. whether it was involved individuals in this case or not is, i think, less important than it is responsible. no way to hide it everybody understands it. >> 9/11 widows up on capitol

hill late last week had to say about this whole thing. >> it's been 15 years. it's way past time. to say a resolution of this. and it's not a sense of closure. it's an accountability for mass murder, brutal murder of more than 3,000 people. >> if saudi arabia funded those attacks, it disseminated lower manhattan and killed 3,000 people, it would mean justice finally for other loved ones who died that day. it's time for the bill to move forward and this case to move forward. it's time for justice. >> mara, most people assume what's in those 28 pages is something that points to saudi arabia. wouldn't it be better to release them, redact it if you have to, just get them out there. >> laura. >> it feels the distrust people have for government

right now. probably a lot of people believe what john brennan is saying, rightly or wrongly. i think there have been snippets of this report that have leaked out and regards the two of the hijackers is san diego and saudi government funding of flight training and logistics. when he said uncorroborated or not. let the sunshine in here. i think the victims of 9/11, the american people, our whole life has been upended by 9/11 with tsa and everything else we go through. we should at least know who our real friends are and who pretends to be a friend as they stab us in the back or fund those who blow up our buildings and our people. >> the terrorist threat seems to have obviously morphed, it's expanded. in iraq, for example, it's much different. and we sought piece earlier about the instability there and the iranians playing a role inside iraq. >> there is a direct cops

sequence of our precipitous evacuation. complete evacuation of iraq in 2011. the decisive element influences iran. the leader of those demonstrations threatening the government that we are supporting sad der an agent of iran, in fact, today, he went to tehran essentially to get his instructions. he is going to be the one who decides what the future of the government will be. and that's a result of our abdication after all the blood and swell it's now in the hands of iran. >> that's it for the panel. stay tuned for a list of one candidate's favorite things.
