7:34 am
the nypd's intelligence division actually supplied a key lead in. because there is a character that we had seen in an earlier case some time ago. so what you have is you have the person behind the main number of these and the copycats. the person behind the main number is first of all your typical bomb scareer, this person is a typical coward. they hide behind the shadows. they work from a distance and their goal is to instill fear. and doing that behind the shadows shows that they're not willing to come out and confront whatever the issue is. they want people to jump through their hoops. this guy is using technology. he's using a voice changer that makes him sound like a fe maim. he is using voip technology on the phone. using phone spoofing. sometimes to make it appear that not only is the call not coming from the number he is using, but mi
7:35 am
location that he's threatening. so we have an offender with some technical prowess here. >> what do you had advise jewish centers to do if they get a call like this? >> anthony, we have been in conversation in new york. what we talked about is a measure of response, remember our offender characteristics. this person actually wants to instill fear. but it also wants t cause disruption. so the measured response is rather than evaluating the whole building of the first call, which fits all of the elements of the pattern, do a perimeter search with the police, do an superior search with the police and/or explosive detection k-9. if nothing is found, don't give the payoff to the threat. >> that is quit obviously a threat. >> john, how do you tell the difference between someone who legitimately wants to do harm and someone who is pulling a prank to create chaos?
7:36 am
person who is legitimately trying to do harm doesn't calm ahead to diminish the amount of harm that he or she is doing, most of the time. but that's a -- that's more a guideline than it is a rule. so you have to hasn't him those things seriously. on the other hand, when you have a defined pattern with the defined characteristics and a large number of these fake calls, then you get into territory where you know exactly what is going on in all likelihood and while you need to respond to it by checking it out, you may not need to use the full-on response that is going to deliver the type of disruption that keeps this person going. >> but you are confident, they're going to catch this guy? >> everything that this individual does, every technological piece that they add in to avoid detection, is going to leave a different kind of fingerprint that when this person is identified and the fbi is running this case, because it's a national threat that are going to help identify this
7:37 am
person. >> there is coordination across state lines on this? >> so what have you is a case that started in the tampa field of the fbi. they're the office of origin, as it spreads throughout the country, leads all come into that central investigation, the headquarters, hate crimes division within the civil rights division, who is running the big picture of this and police departments like new york citys are working their own investigations and coordinating those with the fbi. so there is a lot of people working on this day and night. >> that's good. that's very good to hear. you are the deputy commissioner of nypd. while we have you here we want to ask you about one other thing. protecting donald trump has cost $25 million. is the nypd, i know, want the federal government to reimburse nypd for those costs? >> we certainly do. a letter recently went from the police commission tore all the members of the new york delegation. you know, norah, what this is, is we have an obligation to protect not just the president of the united states while he's in
7:38 am
but also all the residents of trump tower, both when he is here and not here. this is basically an unfunded federal mandate. you know, it's not like the federal government -- >> how much does it cost per year, hundreds of millions? >> if you talk about the 25 million that was before the election, how much it will cost every year is going to depend largely on how often he comes here. so far he hasn't been here as much as people thought he would. but put that aside, trump tower where his family lives, it's his known residence and now because of his name becomes a symbolic target when he's not there. >> that means not just the residents of trump tower, but everything around it becomes a mart of that protection package. >> that all counts the city shouldn't have to pay for that from its taxpayers for walk. it's not like the u.s. government said, just do this, if you guys can fit it in. they said, we need this protection. we're running up a bigil

8:03 am
coming out against this, meaning the hospitals the doctors, the nurses, aarp, are you confident this can get through congress before april 7th when congress goes on recess? >> yes, very confident. and remember, this is one of three phases to repeal and replace obamacare. this is the first phase going through. you have to think about why are we currently where we are and why are we repealing it? remember what obamacare did? it gave greater control to health care to the federal government. it was the exchanges and then it was expansion of medicaid. neither of those in the past. when you look in the changes today, one-third of all the counties of america, there is only one provider, humana was recently pulled out. it gives 16 counties in tennessee with no provider and medicaid is on a path of destruction. it's going to cost $1 trillion within the next ten years for one year and that's the equivalent of how much we spend on discretionary spending for all of government. so you can't let thi
8:04 am
it's going to collapse upon itself. we have to solve the problem. this is the first phase, it's going to reconciliation, which makes it with the senate rules a little more difficult than the second phase will be with tom price and health and human service secretary and the third phase will all start moving at the same time. those bills take 60 votes. overall, you will have a very good bill that solves a problem that lowers the premium's price and brings greater quality to health care. >> the hospital associations that norah mentioned are warning this will result in a substantial reduction in the number of americans who are covered. do you disagree with that? >> yes, i disagree with that. because if you want to sit back and say the argument that the federal government is going to mandate that everyone gets covered, look for the -- what has taken place today. if people can't get care. obamacare created 23co ops and provided more than $2 billion in a short amount of time 18 of those collapsed. if y
8:05 am
tennessee that don't even provide any coverage at all, how can that provide coverage to them? then you look at what the providers are actually saying, they're calling eight death spiral within it comes to obamacare. we can't sit back and see people go without health care. we bought the to provide a system that would actually lower the price and bring greater quality. >> congressman, this is all happening remarkably fast. your colleague in the senate tom cotton tweeted guidance to you this morning, how it can't pass senate without major changes to my friends in the house, pause, start over, get it right, don't get it fast. will you heed that had vice? >> we have heeded that had vice. we have spent the last six years seeing the obamacare and failures of it. we have sat back and watched this thing getting collapsed. what we are doing is keeping the promise of what we said we will do. we will repeal it and replace it. unfontly, we have to do it in three phases. under the rule of the senate it does notow

in one simple vote. so that's why we are going through three different phases, regular order. you watch through committee, through energy and commerce and ways and means. it will go to bug then come to the floor. this is the way legislation is produced in america. this is the way that, one, we can actually keep the promise to lower the price of health care. >> i know that president trump is taking an active role in lobbying some of the more conservative members of your caucus who oppose this bill, particularly the tax credits who they call an additional entitlement, bringing some of them to bowling tonight at the white house. is that going to work? >> look, president trump supports this bill because he understands it lowers the price. what's more importantly, tax credits is a conservative idea. few look back to what heritage said in 2007, tax credits is the way to provide greater health care in the process, so i believe when people sit and read this bill and understand that this is phase i in the process, you will find much more support as we go through. >> all right. vengressman mccarthy, thank you

the concern that the president has and why he asks the senate house intelligence committees to look into this is to get to the bottom of what may or may not have occurred in the election. >> minutes later, he was handed a slip of paper and revised what he said. >> i just want to be clear on one point, which is there is no reason we have to think the president is the target of any investigation, whatsoever. >> who seniors are asking the justice department for copies of warrant applications or court orders for wiretaps of the president or his campaign. >> it is important to make that clarification. >> indeed, it is. >> yeah. every second is critical for victims of a stroke. ahead, how patients can see the doctor and start treatment before they reach the hospital. this is thanks, to a new high-tech ambulance.
