2:00 am
we're waiting for another press conference later today. we may learn a little more about the four people that are being kept in custody, especially the shooter. >> at the top of the hour we continue to cover this awful tragedy that took place in christ hunch. two mosques in that city. 40 individuals attacked about 8:40 eastern time. you mentioned that manifesto, 70 plus pages in length. a news conference concluded a few minutes ago involving new zealand's police commissioner. a number you were curious about which this gentleman who was accused with this, charged with this murder was on police or intelligence radar. as you say he wasn't that forthcoming with information given the fact this man has been charged but did say he, this individual and the other three that were taken into custody were not on police or
2:01 am
intelligence radar. >> reporter: that's right. a lot of these people slipped through. these could have been very ordinary citizens that have been plotting this for a while and there was no suspicion of this. it's fairly easy to get a gun in new zealand. you can buy one for self-defense purposes but a lot of people do have guns in new zealand. not on the same scale as the united states. so it wouldn't have necessarily raised alarm bell if somebody was collecting a certain number of firearms. so they could have gone about their daily business of planning this attack, accumulating firearms without raising too many eyebrows in the country. as you mentioned, we're waiting for more details to come out. see if there are other connections to this. if there are other people involved in this. it doesn't appear there was anybody else involved. but, yeah. it looks like these guys did something very under the radar. they didn't raise any alarm bells. they western on any particular
2:02 am
watch list. so we'll probably learn more about them during the course of the day and exactly how they plotted this attack and if there are any other accomplices involved in this. >> for those people just joining us because we're at the top of the hour i want to bring everybody up to date and if you could help you walk through exactly what's taken place in new zealand over the last couple of hours. i would appreciate it. again 49 people killed in a mosque shooting in new zealand. four people currently in custody. one person currently being charged and appearing in court tomorrow for the murder of these 49 people. the other three not necessarily know what their involvement in this shooting is as of yet. bring everybody else up to date what we know with regards to the shooting. >> reporter: a mass shooting in new zealand this morning. police said 49 people have been killed. that death toll has been climbing all morning. they also say at least 20 people are in very serious condition.
2:03 am
so, you know, the death toll may go up even further during the course of the day. and this doe seem to be new zealand's worst mass shooting. new zealand's prime minister jacinda ardun described the attack of unprecedented violence as one of the country's darkest days. she acknowledged many of those people affected in this mass shooting may be migrants or refugees, from a very desperate group of people looking for a new life. she said this is being categorized as a terrorist attack. now we know the shootings occurred at two mosques in the christchurch area of new zealand. it happened during friday prayer. that's also a very busy time for muslim worshippers. friday is, obviously, a working day of the week but will take some time off during lunch to go to the mosque to pray. so, obviously, this was planned to happen at the busiest time at the mosque.
2:04 am
one of the attacks happened at a mosque called masjid al noor in central christchurch. that was the site of the deadliest of the two attacks. 40 people lost their lives in that mosque. as you and david have mentioned four people are in custody. one person has been charged with murder and we're waiting for more details on these people that are inside. >> what's the latest in christchurch. there was a lockdown, schools were closed, great deal of concern in christchurch. what did we hear from the police commissioner where things stand now? >> reporter: we're hearing from witnesses as well, many of the residents there are dazed and confused. people are gathering at local watering holes and other places to talk about what has happened, to see if anybody they know has been affected, to know if everybody is all right. we heard from one witness
2:05 am
earlier saying this is not new zealand. what happened here will change the face of the country forever. so, yeah, there's a lot of confusion there. but the schools were in lockdown this morning. that lock down on the schools have been lifted. it's unclear whether the lockdown on government buildings have been lifted. police said anybody thinking about going to a mosque today should avoid them at all costs. >> obviously, we'll continue to follow this throughout the morning and get updates from police in new zealand. president trump is poised to hand down the first veto of his presidency after the senate approved the resolution to overturn his emergency declaration on his border wall. lawmakers in that chamber approved the rebuke of the president yesterday in a 59-41 vote. before that vote nine republicans said they would support the measure but that figure grew when senators marco
2:06 am
rubio, roy blunt and roger wickr got on board raising the number of republicans voting in favor of the legislation to 12. one republican who didn't vote yes, thom tillis who reversed course minutes before the vote and stood by the president after previously expressing his support of the bill. despite the increased republican support senate democrats are still short of the 67 votes that would be needed to override a veto by president trump. should be noted of the 22 republican senate seats up for grab in 2020 all but susan collins of maine stood with the president on this matter while senator lamar alexander voted to rebuke president trump he's not running for re-election. >> after the measure was approved trump tweeted veto before elaborating in another tweet, i look forward to vetoing in just passed democrat inspired resolution. i thank the strong republicans
2:07 am
who voted to support strong border security. the president has ten days to officially declare a veto. in a statement following the senate's vote, nancy pelosi said this. the congress has voted on the an overwhelming and bipartisan basis to reject president trump's effort to ignore the constitution with his sham emergency declaration. president trump's emergency declaration is an unlawful power grab that does violence to the constitution and fundamentally alters the separation of powers. this is not an emergency. and the congress has declared in a strong bipartisan voice that the president's fear mongering doesn't make it one. lindsay graham chose to defend the president's actions over the wall. >> president trump will prevail. his veto will be sustained. maybe we can change the statute in the future to help alleviate some concerns but i want my
2:08 am
colleagues to know i appreciate and respect their concerns. but to me this statute allows the president to use military construction money in a national emergency and i think we have one at the border. and i think he's within the scope of the statute and if you don't like the statute, change it. i'll definitely work with people to see if we can change it. i think the president is on solid legal footing and his veto will be sustained. >> information congressman beto o'rourke kicked off his 2020 presidential campaign with a three day trip across iowa and a message of party unity. >> we're all americans, we're all human beings and we do everything within our power for one another, for this great country and for every generation that follows. this is democracy. any single democrat running today and i may not be able to en e say every single one will be
2:09 am
better than the current occupant of the white house. >> he said every single person from the state and territory made donations to his campaign. o'rourke said his 2020 campaign would be much like his 2018 senate run which called quota campaign of people not packs. o'rourke was endorsed by four democratic members of congress. meanwhile president trump mocked o'rourke when asked to weigh in on him jumping into the race. take a listen to this. >> i think he's got a lot of hand movement. i've never seen so much hand movement. is he crazy or is that how he acts? i've never seen so much hand movement. i watched him this morning during some kind avenues conference and i actually never seen anything quite like it. study it.
2:10 am
i'm sure you'll agree. >> o'rourke responded to trump's comments saying i have nothing to say to that. people want to rise above the pettiness, smallness. they want us to be big, bold and ambitious. >> with an interview with breitbart news president trump issued a warning to his political opponents. he suggested his supporters are tougher than demonstrate and then said i have the support of the police, military, support of the bikers for trump. i have the tough people but they don't play it tough until they go to a certain point and then it would be very bad, very bad. >> not the first time president trump has made a comment along those lines. here's some of what he said before the 2016 election. >> they are tough guys, right? where are the bikers for trump? where are they? police? where are the military? they wear the tough black outfits. oh, i would never suggest this
2:11 am
but i will tell you. they are so lucky we're peaceful. law enforcement, military, construction workers, bikers for trump. how about bikers for trump? they travel all over the country. they got trump all over the place. and they are great. they've been great. these are tough people. these are great people. because we're tough as hell. we're going to stay. don't forget, we've got the police. law enforcement loves us. >> got to love it. joining us now from washington, senior writer at world call, neil. neil, could to have you with us on this friday morning. let's talk about the resolution to overturn the national emergency. this is an open rebuke of the president by senate republicans. how is this going down in washington right now? >> so, the question really is going to be whether or not the
2:12 am
president goes hard after those republican senators who rebuked him on this sheet or not. and certainly the one who is getting the most attention because he ultimately ended up voting with president trump is tom tillis of north carolina who is up for re-election in 2020. but, really, the big question is if president trump is re-elected, particularly if the group of senators who are up in 2022, which is like, feels like eternity from now, but if those people who are up, are the people who face the blow back from the president. >> so good to talk to you because there's no better expert on the deliberative body than you. you have followed the senate for a long time. a two part question. what did you make of how many defections there were yesterday on capitol hill. give us your sense of what we can expect ahead of this veto. we mentioned a couple of tweets
2:13 am
we got from the president of the u.n. what are the consequences going to be? >> second part first. i wouldn't be surprised with congress out of town effectively now for another week, trump is going to have the stage to himself largely and so he'll sort of be firing presumably at these members of congress without them being able to quickly respond to him. and just more broadly i was not surprised by the number of defections because a lot of them were members of the appropriations committee who probably intend to be members and senators of the propositions committee and manage federal spending long beyond the trump presidency. >> talk quickly about what this really means because as we know the president will veto this resolution and move forward with this national emergency. that being said the president is being sudden over this national emergency. now the senate is on the record saying we don't agree with what you're doing. talk about the dynamics of all that. >> well, that's exactly the
2:14 am
point. i think a lot of this is going to be fodder for the courts. i would not be surprised to see an amicus brief from the democrats and nancy pelosi wherever the litigation is filed and it goes forward. i'm sure that this will be in the evidentiary record of whatever court proceedings go on these votes in both the house and senate. >> and make those cases stronger. thank you. we'll talk to you again in just a little bit. still ahead continuing coverage of that mass shooting in new zealand. what we're learning about the alleged gunman and many victims. >> and boeing's stop new delivers of 737. students come together to file a class action lawsuit in the wake of the huge college bribery scandal. that and a check of the weather when we come back.

we'll start with that breaking news out of new zealand where 49 people are dead after gunmen opened fire inside two mosques in christchurch there. authorities are saying dozens of others were injured. new zealand's prime minister is calling it an extraordinary and unprecedented act of violence and one of new zealand's darkest days. police also said a number of explosives had been found attached to vehicles near the scene of the attacks. here's one eyewitness describing what happened inside. >> people who were there for my engagement. you don't think something like this could happen in new zealand, christchurch, we're such a small community. we're kind and loving. i don't understand why someone would hurt us like this and in such a way, just like an animal. >> dozens of victims being treated at christchurch hospital. one person has been arrested anticipate charged with murder. three others are in custody.

2:32 am
our constitution. this is not about the president or about border security. >> no president ever used the national emergency act in this way. >> we can be supportive of border security and the president's priorities without ceding our authorities under the constitution. >> reporter: for all the talk there's no teeth since the resolution set to die on the president's desk with a, as he put it, veto. for the first time ever president trump will be forced to use that power to kill something congress wants since there aren't enough votes to override him. >> doesn't matter. i probably have to veto. it's not going to be overturned and we'll have the whole thing. >> reporter: the president previewing a 2020 strategy, fire up his base, but arguing he's fighting the establishment on border security. president trump has ten days to veto that measure once it makes
2:33 am
it to his house. joining us now from washington again senior writer at world call and here at the table professor of preliminary science at brown university and the author of "the oath and the office," corey. corey, let me get your sense of the symbolic import of this vote yesterday. we talked a little bit about that as the president tweeted there, simply in one word veto. we'll veto this resolution. what does this tell you >> even if he vetoes and there aren't votes for an override it's sending a clear constitutional message. what the congress is saying to the president in this country under our constitution it's the senate and house that make the law that allocate funds and president is supposed to executive the law. what this really is a first draft of the constitutional argument that we're about to hear that says really in our system the president has exceeded his authority and as in the youngstown case when
2:34 am
president truman tried to seize steel mills he acted unconstitutionally. they are setting the stage for the dour the courts to block this president. >> so what does this mean as we head towards 2020? >> almost without exception and the exception being susan collins and she's up for re-election in maine and that's a very different circumstance from the rest of them, there's no one else who actually is running for re-athletic in 2020 -- reelection in 2020 who pushed back against president trump on this. to the professor's point some of the floor speeches that we saw, particularly lamarre alexander, the republican from tennessee who is retiring really made the point about there may have been even other money that the president could have accessed to try and get the wall that would not have gone down this particular path of a constitutional question over the
2:35 am
power of the purcellville. >> corey, i want to ask you, again, the laser focus on this relationship between congress and the president. do you see this as portending for more disagreement between the house. there's a lot of criticism from democrats and republicans as well you have a republican congress in lock step with the president of the united states. does this indicate to you we'll see more of this, more members of the president's own party willing to take disagreement with what the president is doing? >> yes. it's significant it's a majority of the senate in this case. and in other issues a majority would be enough to stop a president. the other significant thing is that you're seeing a wing of the republican party starting to say this is not a normal president. the comedian john mulaney says the horse is loose. the president has been violating constitutional norms for a long time and this senate is taking a clear stance against it. both with the vote but as
2:36 am
significantly saying what we really care about is the separation of powers, our system of the rule of law. >> talk quickly about tom tillis here. from what we heard yesterday at one point he was going to vote as well for this resolution. he was going to vote to knock down the president's national emergency. then we heard vice president mike pence was in his ear lobbying him to switch and ultimately he did just that. >> there's been reporting there are potential republican primary challengers that he could be facing in north carolina including congressman mark walker. so he's hearing it from all sides. but it is really remarkable that someone who went out and had an op-ed in the "washington post" blasting this early and still out there and ultimately voted with the president. >> then jumped ship. corey, while i have you, weigh in on this other story, being that you after professor at
2:37 am
brown university and you're getting this question a lot, this college scam that's been going on. what's the reaction from your colleagues inside of brown right now? >> i think that the whole country including my university, universities around the country are really deeply concerned that the admissions process has to be fair and equal and this is really a threat not just in these cases but to the whole system. so there has to be very serious investigation and we have to make sure it certainly doesn't happen going forward. >> thanks so much. unanimous vote house republicans joined democrats to demand special counsel robert mueller's final report on russian meddling in the 2016 election be made public. the nonbinding resolution urged william barr to release any report given to him by robert mueller except those prohibited bylaw. chuck schumer called for a vote on the measure but was blocked by senator lindsey graham. graham said he supported mueller's investigation but asked the resolution included an
2:38 am
amendment calling for the appointment of a special counsel to investigate the fbi's handling of hillary clinton's e-mail use and the surveillance of former trump adviser carter page. senator schumer refused. >> i'm deeply disappointed in my good friend from south carolina. this amendment appears to be a pretext for blocking this very simple noncontroversial resolution. this resolution should pass the senate in the blink of an eye. i have absolutely no idea why a member of this body would object to this basic level of transparency, whatever their concern on other issues. >> a trial date has been set for long time republican confidant roger stone. during a brief court hearing yesterday the judge announced the trial for november 5th suggesting that it would run at least two weeks long. stone is charged with lying to congress, witness tampering and obstructing a congressional investigation into russian
