lea gabrielle is live in annapolis, maryland. explain the back story here. >> trace, this all started about seven years ago, in july of 2011. that's when a columnist of the "capital gazette" wrote about a criminal harassment case against ramos. that column was about a case that involved a online relationship that ramos tried to create with someone he went to high school with, a classmate. the baltimore sun that owns the "capital gazette" reported that ramos later allegedly call her vulgar names. he told her to kill herself and he tried to get her fired. ramos pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor harassment charge and he received probation. he later brought a defamation suit against the kcolumnist. ramos made threats towards the "capital gazette" on social media. the police say there's clearly a
12:04 pm
history. >> it's a targeted attack. we can't fathom why that person chose to do this. we don't think we have anymore clear and present dangers to the citizens of anne arundel county. >> the capital says the former publisher said i remember telling our attorneys, this is a guy that is going to come in and shoot us. trace, he also told the baltimore sun that in 2013, he reached out to the anne arundel county police department about ramos in 2013, but nothing came of that. he also considered filing a restraining order but decided not to after consulting with attorneys, trace. >> trace: yeah, we've seen the pictures of the victims. what more are we learning about them? >> today, trace, people have been coming here, putting flowers downs and balloons, messages on notes here at the
12:05 pm
scene. the "capital gazette" detailed the stories of some of the victims in its paper today. one of them was john mcnamara. he was remembered for his flexibility, concise writing and extensive knowledge of regional sports. rebecca smith was a recent hire at the "capital gazette." a co-worker said that she already had proven herself as a valuable asset. wendi winters built a reputation as a freelance reporter and a well-known community resource. and gerald fischman was clever and quirky. and rob hiaassen was the brother of an author from the "miami herald," rob hiaassen. he loved his children and could talk for hours about his
12:06 pm
children. one of the other ways these victims are being honored, the co-workers putting out the paper and reporting on the stories. >> trace: our prayers go out. lea gabrielle is live. thank you. the people of annapolis planning to honor the victims tonight. the city announcing a vigil at 8:00 p.m. in the capitol square. from there, there will be a waterside service. the major of annapolis is with us. it's been a difficult day. our hearts go out to you and your city. give us an idea of how your city is dealing with this on the day after. >> thanks for having us. i think a lot of us have tried to get a couple of hours sleep
12:07 pm
and then open their eyes and realize that it wasn't just a dream, that it did really happen to our city. very personal for us. we know the journalists, we know the journalists that survived. we know the police officers that stormed the building. so you know, it could have been worse. still doesn't make anybody feel better. >> trace: i know you have said, this paper was not liberal. it covered your childrens soccer matches and local subjects. yet there appears to be all accounts a vendetta this man had against the paper. it's inexplicable. >> it's unbelievable that a guy with this many red flags can get his hand on a weapon. i don't know what the answer is to that. when we have to talk about mental health, we have to talk about gun control. we have to find out why we are
12:08 pm
so tightly wound as a community. we have to stop hating one another because we vote for a different party or different opinion. i'm hoping this vigil today can bring people together and we can talk about hope and love and the future. >> trace: yeah, he made the threats on social media talking about jarrod ramos, this went on for years. we know there was no security in that newsroom. you, mr. mayor, have been in the newsroom. it's kind of odd there was no security. but then again, these types of things don't happen in the united states. they happen in mexico and happen in columbia. but attacking journalists is extraordinarily rare in this country. >> yeah, we -- that's the first thing i wanted to know. i'm close friends with the editor. we hope that it wasn't an attack on journalism. these guys do the job just because they love being journalists. it's not a way to get rich. you do it because you have a
12:09 pm
passion for information. they've been doing an exceptional job. i'm sure that when they went to college, when they went to study journalism, they didn't think it would be in the job description. >> yeah, it's amazing to me. you have also spoken to the journalists. we saw these guys in a parking garage trying to get the newspaper out. you have spoken to some of them. what was it that drove them to make sure they got the paper out this morning? >> just a testament to the people that they are. you know, they're committed people. not only are they amazing for what they did and their dedication, i saw a journalist walking behind -- we never had this many cameras and this many journalists in the city. you must feel it yourself. look, any newsroom is susceptible to something like this. i've been in that newsroom a lot of times. i walk in there and there's a
12:10 pm
low front reception desk and a bank of tables. there's no where to hide, nowhere to run. so they must have been terrified. what i have really think also that we have to pay attention to is the first responders that got into the building, they didn't know whether this guy had a machine gun or, you know, a grenade or anything like that. they went through the motions of the drills we practiced. they stepped over victims to get to the gun. the guy threw his gun away and hit under a table. >> they did hero's work, mr. mayor. so good of you to join us. our heart goes out to you and your community. the best to you on this, mr. mayor. thanks for joining us. >> thank you for having us. >> trace: meantime, president trump speak about the deadly shooting. the president offered his con delenses to the victim's families and said no journalist should have to be afraid while doing his or her job.

12:22 pm
something like that, but i don't think i'm going to be so specific. >> trace: you can watch the full interview on "sunday morn futures". president trump needs every republican vote he can get to push through his nominee. he met with two key gop senators yesterday, lisa murkowski of alaska and susan collins of main. they're pro abortion rights, but they did vote to confirm the president's last nominee, justice neil gorsuch. the president met with three red stated democrats facing tough races for re-election and they voted for justice gorsuch. blake burman was told the president wants to move quickly on selecting a nominee and they did not push back on reports that he could announce his pick before july 10. that's when he's set to leave for his summit with vladimir
12:23 pm
putin. let's bring in alexi, a political reporter for axios. looks like the president has done the math. he knows john mccain is being treated for brain cancer. his margins in the senate are thin. if you're going to get murkowski and collins on board, you don't want to talk about roe v. wade going away. >> the president said he would ask this justice nominee whether or not he would overturn roe v. wade, that would dominate the headlines. his critics would talk about nothing else. the underlying fact is he wants to elect a pro life justice, something that is conservative. he said that before he was elected president. it's clear that he wants to move forward in this way. it will be tough as you mentioned because senators collins and murkowski are the only two republican senators that are pro abortion rights even though they voted to confirm gorsuch. he's keenly aware of the
12:24 pm
political calculus behind it or his nominee might not be confirmed. >> trace: they said if there's any role that the justice would play in getting roe v. wade, they're out. they must have articulated that to the president. >> and he's been having calls with them. don mcgann had a call with senator collins yesterday or wednesday, i believe. so they're trying to court these senators on both sides of the aisle, especially these two republican senators. they need them on board. the thing we should recognize, they're not up for re-election. susan collins' term ends in 2020. murkowski 2022. they have a less of incentive to vote for this justice if they disagree with him because of political calculus or re-election worries. that's something that the president is thinking about. >> sure. they're not up for re-election.
12:25 pm
the red state democrats, joe manchin, heidi heitkamp, different story. the president is trying to woo them saying you could help me out here by voting for my supreme court nominee. >> a former republican senate leadership aide told axios that this is a terrible position for the red state democratic senators to be in. they're the most vulnerable. they voted for gorsuch before and now they're stuck with voted for the next nominee and depressing the democratic voters or voting against the nominee and will rile up and fire up the republican base in their states who are already sort of inclined to vote in a republican senate tore replace them. it looks as if they have no choice but to go with neil gorsuch. >> trace: and i want to get your take on the timing here.
12:26 pm
maybe we heard late summer, early fall for the nominee to come forward. now we're hearing break neck speed. this could happen next week. >> right. the president himself said wednesday that he wanted this decision in 12 to 14 days. by july 10. this is something that the president takes seriously. the court starts in october. they want to move quickly on it because there's a number of legislative issues that they need to focus on in addition to focusing on the mid-term election that is fast approaching november when multiple republican senators and house members are considered vulnerable or facing competitive challenges. they have a whole host of things to focus on. this is one less thing that the president wants to worry about. >> there's a path for the nominee to make it. i want your take on a couple wild cards. we've talked about jeff flake saying no. what do you think about him? he usually tends to come on board. there's always the threat that he won't. >> jeff flake is fascinating.
12:27 pm
he's been an outspoken critic of the president. he said early they are week before justice kennedy announced his retirement he would not support a nominee. and then when he announced, he said never mind. i'm not going to block the nominee. so we sort of see how he's moving back and forth. he will ultimately vote in favor. >> trace: what about dean heller in nevada? that's the only state that hillary clinton won. he's kind of in a pickle of a race out there. maybe he says yay or ney on that. >> he's in a tough position, too, because of the politics of his state. the president just went to nevada and campaigned for him. it would be a slam in the face if dean heller voted against his nominee. it would prove to the president and that dean heller is not loyal to him and how much the president values loyalty. so it would be a politically unwise move for heller to do that especially after trump was
12:28 pm
just in nevada supporting him and encouraging the state to vote for him to re-elect him. >> i hadn't heard the president was valuing loyalty. that's news to me. thanks, alexi. great of you to join us. >> thanks. >> trace: the immigration debate set to bring new protests this weekend. they're expected to be larger than the demonstrations we have already seen. we're live at the southern border for a preview on what we can expect. plus, a new bill giving folks more control over how companies like facebook and twitter use their personal information. this is key. it's fascinating. you're going to want to hear it next. what about him? let's do it. ♪ come on.
