6:03 pm
good evening again. breaking news throughout the hour including a new video showing the deadly police shoot. we begin with donald trump in ohio on well, an epic tear against many, many things including a mosquito. also, including hillary clinton, the lack of charges against her in the e-mail investigation. also including the tweet his campaign sent out with a picture
6:04 pm
of hillary clinton, the money, and the six-pointed star that some saw as anti-semitic. tonight he said he wished it had not been taken down. that's not all he said. take a look. >> hillary clinton, i said, bad judgment. she is incometent. the only good they know she's ever done is get out of trouble when anybody else would have been in jail by now. that's the only thing that i've ever seen her do that was a great job. i have to give her credit. i have to give her credit. i have to give bill clinton credit for going to that plane and saying for 39 minutes he talked about his grandchildren and he talked about golf. there is no way you can do that. i told you. two minutes for the grandchildren. two minutes for golf. we got 35 or 36 minutes left. what are we -- let's talk about hillary. and hillary then talks about, i think i would reappoint the attorney general.
6:05 pm
and you're waiting for a decision by the attorney general. and you are saying you're going to give her a job. you're not allowed to do that. that's bribery, folks. raised $51 million, right? even newt couldn't believe that. right, newt? $51 million raised. so here's what's going to happen. and i just started in the middle -- this sounds like a football game. newt, newt, newtful are they booing or saying newt? it is one of those names. right in they love newt. we do love newt. we all love newt. newt gets it. i'll tell you one thing, folks. i'm not saying it is newt but if it's newt, nobody will beat him in the debates. we have a president who is right now, what he wants to do, all he wants to do is campaign. he has a good time campaigning.
6:06 pm
i want a president that will be focusing on knocking the hell out of isis. the democrats, oh, there was a mosquito. i don't want mosquitos around me. oh. i don't like mosquitos. i don't like those mosquitos. i never did. okay. speaking of mosquitos, hello, hillary, how are you doing? so we have unbelievably dishonest the video. you see the star, which is fine. they shouldn't have taken it down. i said too bad. you should have left it up. just leave it up. that is just a star. >> all right. sarah murray was at this event. it is clear donald trump was enjoying himself. he did discuss hillary clinton and her e-mails but he discussed a lot of other things. many, many other things. he heads to capitol hill to meet with republicans.
6:07 pm
some of whom want him with a greater message discipline. how do you think tonight's speech will play there? >> i certainly think other republicans will look at his criticisms of hillary clinton saying she is a liar, she gets away with things other americans would go to prison for. they'll like that part. i think the parts where they won't like it is where he doubles down on compliments. he offers to saddam hussein, he doubled down on his campaign sending out this tweet the six-pointed star and the piles of cash behind hillary clinton which many felt evoked anti-semit anti-semitic. and that's not something they like to answer for. he doubled down on x, he doubled down on y. do you agree with him? when he meets with these folks in a smaller setting, i think they get a better sense of what's going on with his campaign. of him personally. it is possible he may be able to
6:08 pm
win a couple people over that way but he is not doing them any favors when they get stopped and to have answer for things like a tweet that has been slammed by their own leader sxhip the anti-defamation league. >> we heard him talking about newt gingrich. that he is on the possible short list. trump said newt will be involved in government at some level if he is selected. dropping a lot of hints there, sarah. >> we are in full on veep stakes mode, john. you know this time period all too well. so we're looking for any hint that he may be closing in on. one thing you can tell when he and newt gingrich were campaigning together. they feel very comfortable together. gingrich has become an asset to this campaign in a way he certainly wasn't early on. and he has become comfortable, not only with donald trump but members of trump's own family. one of the things he's said, he's still trying on decide whether he wants someone who can
6:09 pm
bolster his military credentials or on the political side. so that could be a key part of whether he might go with someone like newt gingrich or someone with more of a military background. >> all right. thank you so much. so newt gingrich. he introduced donald trump. he is clearly on the short list. two others though, it doesn't seem like they are anymore. joni ernst who made noises today about staying in the senate. she doesn't want to be part of the selection process anymore and tennessee's bob corker who introduced donald trump last night. he flat out said no thanks. i spoke to senator corker earlier tonight. earlier today up you were withdrawing yourself from consideration because you don't feel comfortable playing the role of a political attack dog. you said, it is a highly political job and that's not who i am. the thing is, that's what the vp job is. if you're not comfortable with it, why did you let yourself get
6:10 pm
so far in the vetting process? >> i didn't use the word attack dog. someone else used that to describe the job. when someone asks you to consider something, i think all of us look at i fully. i felt like there was a better way to serve and that there were other people who would be a better vice presidential candidate. it was very positive. i certainly appreciated the time with the candidate. donald trump certainly have an appreciation for who they are and how they conduct. they. >> you've also been somewhat critical. you said you were discouraged by the results of some of the advice you've been giving him. did that come at all into your decision not to keep your hat in the ring and be his running mate? >> it really didn't. i just view myself, if write to serve in an administration, i would serve in a different way
6:11 pm
than being a vice presidential candidate. but it really dm. i think they've made moves in a very positive direction. they'll make a lot more moves in that direction and they are, i think they're gearing up. and they're going to have a very professional campaign as they move ahead. >> where would you like to see the most growth for donald trump as a candidate? >> well, you know, i think, i don't know if you've been to one of the rallies or not. you have -- yes. i think you would agree. it is pretty amazing, the energy that is there. so i think he is tapped into something that none of the other candidates did. i think that people see that he loves being with them. he derives energy it from. so it is to be able to capitalize on that energy. and the way that he is tapped into the american psyche during
6:12 pm
this race. and to do so, and to build the momentum without committing any unforced errors. there will be a few obviously but i think that's the biggest thing they have to overcome. >> senator, you said that donald trump has committed unforced errors on the campaign trail. others think that donald trump has said things that are just false. for instance, he keeps on saying that he is on the record, opposing the iraq war before the invasion. there is no record of that. and there are other things as well. do you have concerns that sometimes he plays fast and loose with the truth? >> look, we've got a candidate who has been a business person all of their life, which brings a lot of strengths as people look to washington to challenge its trajectory. again, i think you're going to see a lot of differences moving ahead. i have to tell you, the caricature that i think has been
6:13 pm
portrayed of him, he is a very different person than i think the public sees him to be because of some of the unforced errors. and i think they're putting into place the discipline that's are necessary in races like this. my first race, i certainly wasn't near as good. at the beginning of the race as at the end. >> but good and truth rockville two different things. you served in business. i'm wondering if you think he needs to work harder to stick to it. >> look, i think they have recognized over the last several weeks that they're moving into the general election, the group of people are making the adjustments they need to make to rise to that occasion.
6:14 pm
i think that they do. >> just ahead for us, hillary clinton and the truthful hillary clinton and trust. will the scathing comments from the fbi director sway voters already wary of the secretary? i am rich. with fans clamoring for our next hit album, we return to our extravagant private studio, where we turn gold into platinum. yes, i am rich. that's why i drink the champagne of beers. 80% try to eat healthy, yet up to 90% fall short in getting key nutrients from food alone. let's do more. add one a day men's gummies. complete with key nutrients plus b vitamins to help convert food into fuel. one a day. my cousin's wedding is c♪ming soon. i like the bride more than the groom. ♪ turquoise dresses... so excited. did all her exes get invited?

6:16 pm
6:17 pm
hillary clinton spent the second day since james comey talked about it, not talking about it. >> when this casino collapsed because of how badly he managed it, hundreds of people lost their jobs. shareholders were wiped out.
6:18 pm
lenders lost money. contractors, many of them, small businesses, took heavy losses and many themselves went bust. but donald trump? he walked away with millions. and here's what he says about the whole experience. he brags about it. >> it remains to be seen whether the message will stick. whether people will trust her. it is perhaps her biggest challenge and it has been years in the making. >> 2008 in the heat of the democratic primary, hillary clinton describes a harrowing flight and a dash for safety in bosnia a dozen years earlier. >> i remember landing under sniper fire. there was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport but instead we ran with our heads down.
6:19 pm
>> but video of her smiling, hands, posing for pictures proves the story is not true. and cleanse backtracks. >> i made a mistake in describing it. >> so help me god. >> congratulations. >> almost since she came to washington, her trust worthiness has been under fire. amid stories of her real estate deals and firings at the white house. the conservative columnist called her a congenital liar. time and again her actions have given opponents ammunition. >> do you think new york state should recognize gay marriage? >> no. >> no. okay. >> she opposed same-sex marriage. >> i support marriage for lesbian and gay couples. >> as the obama administration was saying the benghazi attacks grew from a spontaneous protest, she was privately e-mailing that it was the group of an al qaeda-like group. >> state department experts knew the truthful you knew the truth.
6:20 pm
>> well, congressman, there was a lot of conflicting information. >> a two-year congressional throw produced no evidence of overt wrongdoing such as the fbi investigation into her e-mail produced no proof of a crime in what she has called a mistake. >> you defended president obama's immigration policies. now you say they're too harsh. you supported his trade deal dozens of times of you called at this time gold standard. now last week you're against it. will you say anything to get elected? >> i have been very consistent over the course of my spire life. >> plenty of her supporters seem content with it and they know anyone's political views can change. they dismiss many of the critics as political end ms. just as she dismisses the idea that this could crater her campaign. would you vote for someone you don't trust? >> well, people should and do trust me. thank you. >> but polls show most voters still do not. tom foreman, cnn, washington. >> thanks.
6:21 pm
back now with our panel. joining the conversation. cnn david gergen, and regional vice chair, a donald trump surrogate. i want to start with you. you get on this issue of trust and this issue of truth. we talk about the e-mail and what director comey discussed yesterday. hillary clinton said she never the sent or received the e-mails. she said she never sent or received any e-mails marked classified. that's not the case. hillary clinton said she turned over all of her e-mails. the fbi director said that's not the case. this gets to the issue of trust. this gets to the issue of leveling with the american people. do you see how that is a problem for her and why she would need to address it more? >> a couple things. on the e-mails in question, i think the campaign has been cheer. they have not seen, and i don't know if they have yet, the e-mail that the director is referencing. so we can't really speak to what their response is on that.
6:22 pm
the facts from their perspective, sense they have not yet seen the e-mails. not that they should have but that is the facts. we don't know what e-mail he is referring to yet. i think secretary chin has herself recognized on the campaign trail that trust is an issue. she understands that. it is not surprising after 30 years of a cottage industry attack the clintons. but let's also recognize that donald trump has incredibly high negative numbers. and also has incredibly high numbers of people believing he is not qualified to be president. >> two quick points. we don't need to see the e-mails to know what the fbi director said. what she had clald to the merge people isn't true. that's according to what the fbi director just. . number two, clinton said something which you often hear from the clinton team. people don't trust her because have 30 years of a right wing attack. you actually worked in the cleanse white house.
6:23 pm
you saw some of the attacks. don't they bear responsibility? these attacks aren't coming out of thin air. look at the one with the e-mails. there are legitimate questions about whether she was telling the truthful. >> there are legitimate attacks and nonlegitimate attacks. and i think she's been subjected to a lot of illegitimate attacks that had no basis. donald trump repeated that kind of thing today when he claimed that the attorney general of the united states was bribed by the clintons and there is no evidence of that. but i must tell you that not answering the charges from the fbi for a day and a half, saying nothing. i think that's very disappointing. an awful lot of americans would like to be able to vote for her. because they're not happy with donald trump but they would like to look to her for leadership and guidance. that's what they're not seeing. it is imperative. whatever you think about the facts, it is imperative that she
6:24 pm
come forward and answer a lot of questions on people's minds. she was one of the highest ranking people in the world who is being accused of being extremely careless about her national security secrets, and running a state department that was extremely lax. she needs to respond to that. >> publicly? >> of course. absolutely. i think she either needs to sit down with journalists, i'll answer all your questions to the best of my ability. or she will have to go in front of one of these committees. either way, can she handle it? she showed in benghazi she can handle it. >> you said there are illegitimate attacks but you said there are legitimate questions. >> absolutely. this is a tough report. yes. he came to the conclusion, the fbi came to the conclusion they would not recommend prosecution. but it was a scathing report. and news organization after news organization has said basically, the fbi blew holes in her story.
6:25 pm
they dismantled her story. whatever you want to say. so a lot of people, she is not above everybody else. she has to show, i get it. this is serious. this is a serious investigation. i'm going to respond to it. i think i'm right. she has a very good case on the classified documents. let's wait and see. but i think she has to say voluntarily, i want to get to the bottom of this. i want to answer questions. >> the fbi has a different version of the story than hillary clinton. i want to bring john into the conversation. she doesn't get a lot of press conferences. that would be news in and of itself. john, you've been around a long time including in new york where hillary clinton ran. there have been questions a long time but they keep winning. bill clinton won a lot of elections. hillary clinton won secretary of state, she got through the benghazi hearings most people think completely unscathed. why doesn't it stick? >> hillary clinton is not bill
6:26 pm
clinton. what she is doing now is insulting to the american people. she has run this entire campaign in a controlled environment. she refuses to be accessible to the press. she, serving controlled where she is the only one talking shelf doesn't answer questions. because she can't. >> i know you were involved -- it's new york. >> she won the primaries. so it didn't stick. you think this time will be different. >> yeah. i do. let's face it. the democrat party blocked everyone out. you have an open seat for president of the united states of america and there are really only two candidates and one of the candidates, you know, a 70 some odd-year-old socialist. snowed competition. it was a joke. the vice president decided not to seek the presidency. >> i don't -- >> we talked about this. >> i don't understand. who dispatched whom? we had four candidates. you had the jv team. >> i don't know about that.
6:27 pm
>> there were four candidates in this race. two of them dropped out. bernie sanders for all intents and purposes is still in this race. >> no, no. let's be clear, attacking and asailing somebody's age is disrespectful. why did you attack his age? >> let's talk about -- >> it's the -- >> listen, listen. to be clear, hillary won new york soundly. number one. number two, she has won more votes in this election than anyone. >> including donald trump. >> and i would add going to the bernie sanders influence, he has influence and hillary's own background has influence. a democratic platform that democrats across this country
6:28 pm
will be incredibly proud of. so don't talk to me about sort of, we got everybody out of the race. we had a substantive race. >> i've been working very hard. trust is a vulnerable issue for hillary clinton. is donald trump the right candidate to prosecute that issue? >> no. because why do you think there are people on my side of this who don't want donald trump as our nominee. we're upset by the fact, that we couldn't have a worse candidate. he is such a liar. and he says things that are so blatant untrue. and it is almost a wash. so we're going into a general election now where people to have choose between who is the least liar. that is awful for this country. it pains me. donald trump has a huge problem
6:29 pm
with the truth. >> your colleague brought it up first. >> either hillary clinton is massively incompetent for not knowing the law or she deceived the american public. throws the two options. the deception argument is the much stronger one. hold. on these are facts. she signed a nondisclosure agreement agreeing that she would suffer criminal charges if she mishand classified information and she sent a memo to state department employees saying, remember, don't conduct work business on private e-mail accounts. she is a yale educated attorney. choose. incompetence or deception. >> we all. . david gergen agrees. she needs answer in a news conference which would be a great idea. thank you very much. stick around. coming up, donald trump says saddam hussein was bad, very bad. he did say that saddam hussein was good at killing terrorists.
6:30 pm

6:34 pm
donald trump said. at least when it comes to his acumen in killing terrorists. >> saddam hussein was a bad guy. a really bad guy. do you know what did he well? he killed terrorists. he did that so good. they didn't read them rights, they didn't talk. they were terrorists. it was over. >> donald trump reiterating tonight repeatedly that saddam hussein was bad. but that he was good at killing terrorists. and this is not the first time or second time that donald trump has expressed admiration for some of the behavior of some dictators. >> they are some of the most powerful and dangerous dictators around the world and donald trump seems to be impressed. sure, he called kim jong-un a maniac but also called the killing of his political rivals amazing. adding, you have to give him credit. >> he goes in and takes over. he is the boss.
6:35 pm
incredible. he wiped out the uncle. this one and that one. he doesn't may games. >> kim's umpg was accused of turning on the government. he was later executed. still, trump said he would have no problem speaking with kim jong-un. then there is russian president vladimir putin. he and donald trump have enjoyed a bit of a bromance for months. when poenltdly asked about allegations that putin has had journalists and political opponents killed, trump defended him. >> he is running his country and at least he is a leader. unlike what we have in this country. >> he has often talked about gadhafi. even though he vowed to die as a martyr rather than lose power. in 2011 trump said in a video blog that gadhafi was slaughtering his citizens is that the u.s. should knock him out but later changed his tune. >> in february at a debate long
6:36 pm
after gadhafi was shot dead, trump stunned many when he applauded the former dictator's regime. >> we would be so much better off if gadhafi were in charge right now. >> the two have a history. in 2009 trump allowed his west chester estate to be rented to the will he bean leader so co-stay outside in a tent. even sacrifice a live lamb while in new york for the u.n. general assembly. gadhafi ended up not staying there but gadhafi paid him a fortune. trump has admired the tactics of the chinese government for its handling of the 1989 crackdown in baing's tiananmen square. hundreds, if not thousands of students were killed. calling for a more democratic government. in 1990, trump told "playboy" magazine they were vicious, they were horrible. but they put it down with strength. that shows you the power of strength. at a republican debate this year, trump again called the
6:37 pm
crackdown horrible but went on to refer to the protests as riots which is exactly the word the chinese government used to characterize them. kasich said the chinese government butchered those kids. cnn, new york. up next, new video of police officers killing a black man at point blank range in baton rouge. we'll give you the facts when "360" tens. upports regularity with dailycomfort fiber. so unlike others, mirafiber is less likely to cause unwanted gas. love your fiber. new mirafiber. good luck with the meeting today. thank you. as our business is growing, and you're on the road all day long, it's exhausting. holiday inn has been a part of the team. you're on the fourth floor. it makes life on the road much easier. book your next journey at

6:49 pm
officers, shot multiple times at point blank range. several videos of the shooting have surfaced. the justice department is now handling the investigation. joining me, cnn political commentator, law enforcement analyst and retired detective, and cnn legal analyst, mark o'marra. let me start with you. we've seen this video. we've sustain two office orders top of this man. you can't always tell everything from the video but what you've seen as you looked at this, did these officers have other options? >> i like the fact the second video came in. we saw this from a whole different perspective. those officers, you can see in that second video, are both on top of mr. sterling. trying to fight with they wim. mr. sterling did not comply ask therefore this altercation started. when they had him down on the
6:50 pm
ground and looking from that perspective on the video there, one of the officers yells he has a gun. the other officer pulls his weapon. and you can see, the other officer trying gain control of that right arm. now, that right arm is near right pocket where that weapon is. the officer, with the police officer's weapon that is being put into the chest of mr. sterling is telling the man, calm down, stop. or you know what i'm going to do. and at that time, you look at that other officer. he does not now have control of that right arm and those officers at that time believed their lives were in danger. that mr. sterling was able to get near or close to that weapon and they had a fire. now, if you look at the police officer's body language, after fires and moves away, he still thinks necessary danger. and maybe the suspect might have the gun. finally the second officer comes over and takes the gun out of
6:51 pm
pocket. >> there is still a federal i can't litigate based on the videos. we kind of overstep when we do that. i think we don't do the public any justice. i think we enflame rather than educate. but there are things can you see in this video, which is he comes into contact with the officers, he is alive, he is shot at point blanc range and killed. in addition to that, there's one thing that nobody is commenting on. this is something happening in almost every case i have covered and i covered many of these cases, the immediate administration of aid to save the life. i don't know what happens after the video goes off but they see

that he is still alive, they remove whatever is in his pocket that presumably is in the threat to him and still no one tries to stop the bleeding from his chest. this happens in the case of trayvon martin, in timir rice, in the case of eric garner where they checked his pockets rather than delivering and administering cpr. what is it about these particular people that makes people lack the basic human empathy that would say even if i had to shoot you, i now see that you are incapacitated and you can no longer harm me. the least i can do is to try to keep you in line. >> mark, i want to get you in one second. harry, hang on. is there a way to get aid more quickly to people who have been shot like this? harry? >> oh, are you asking me? >> yes. >> is there more aid? i'm sure that the officers as soon as they shot this man, mr.

sterling, that their next procedure now is to handcuff him. all right? once he is handcuffed, you can call the ems. i'm sure the ems was responding as soon as they called shots fired. and the ems responded. i didn't see anything in the video about how fast anybody tried to give this man some kind of have two police officers in the heat of it and you're fighting for your life and you just fired some shots, those police officers might be a little shocked themselves. >> and we don't know what happened after the video. one of the questions will be were those officers fighting for their lives and one of the issues important there, mark, is the disposition of the gun, the police afterward today, we heard in a news conference say that the man was armed there. we did see a gun that appeared to be taken from sterling's pockets after the shooting. if he does have a gun in his pocket, his pocket, would that be enough to justify deadly force?

>> well, it may very well be. here's why. first of all, our prayers to the family and the community that this resolves itself with some peace and some education, as charles said. we have to be very careful speculating, jumping to conclusions. but the analysis is going to be frame by frame. they come to the scene because somebody has been threatening somebody with a gun. >> we're now told that the dispatch called, they were told he was brandishing a gun, i don't know that the word threatening was used by brandishing a gun. >> when a gun is involved, that is a deadly weapon and has to be addressed with that level of concern. now they come to the scene and they do what they're allowed to do, get control of the situation. if he is resisting, maybe because he doesn't know why he's being stopped and harassed by the cops, nonetheless, on the street they are the judges. we give cops the authority to get control of the situation, which is what they do. once they get him down -- now as
6:55 pm
soon as they see the gun, it's pretty apparent the gun wasn't out, but if the cop sees the butt of a gun, that's a gun and if he doesn't have full control of his right hand, he was trying to get control over it, that situation has now gotten much, much worse because a deadly weapon is now in play in their minds. with the premise that he had it before, they now see where it is. and i think we're going to hear, we hear the cop's statements that they saw the butt of the gun. once that's in play, they now have to be aware that that is a deadly force situation. that's why the one cop takes out his gun, the other cop says put your hand where i can see it or whatever he says. unfortunately in the moment in the split second that a decision has to be made, if he is not compliant, if they can't get his arm out because of the bumper of the car or just because of the slight resistance, they have to deal with an a potential active weapon and that's what they did. and unfortunately, it seems as though the way it develops
6:56 pm
quarter second by quarter second, there wasn't a lot more that could happen once one cop said he saw the gun and the other cop reacted that the gun was present. >> we have 15 seconds. >> the department of justice now overseeing this investigation. is that the right authority here? >> i think so. there is nostate and community violence. wa you want is a situation a community of people, the vast majority doing the right thing, trust them enough. right now the relationship is severely strained. >> gentlemen, thanks so much for being with us. we'll be right back my shop, . and open up on time. then i found aleve pm. the only one to combine a safe sleep aid plus the 12 hour pain relieving strength of aleve. now i'm back. aleve pm for a better am.
