out consistency not trying to have any big moments not trying to start any fights with other candidates just getting her message out there keeping that momentum going but you mentioned Joe Biden a very different situation with a former vice president who will be on stage on Wednesday night with Kamala Harris who he clashed with last time around and Senator Cory Booker who has criticized the vice president for his role in the 1994 crime bill that is setting up for potentially a major clash between these candidates but I want you to take a listen to Peabody Judge mayor of South Bend Indiana he's going to be on stage on Tuesday night along with Warren Sanders and better work he's taking a more down he's taking a more subdued approach to the debate take a listen well I'm not gonna do it for its own sake but of course I'm gonna vigorously defend what I believe in and when there are contrasts to be drawn we're gonna draw them but for me this is not about having some canned moment this is about making sure that the American people can understand what we believe in and why my candidacy is not like any of the others so some other candidates are under a bit more pressure to break through in these debates I want you to take a look at some of these tweets yesterday from Andrew yang and Senator Michael Bennet yang is going to be on stage on Wednesday night he jokingly jokingly tweeted that he's going to spend his time on the debate stage going after Michael Bennett he's tweeted at Bennett you know what you did Bennett tweeted back jokingly that yang had uncovered he failed a precalculus class in high school they went back and forth it was a little light-hearted moment in this campaign another light-hearted moment on the campaign trail yesterday in Iowa senator Cory Booker shaved the heads of some supporters in exchange for some donations to charity we don't imagine there will be any of that action here in New Hampshire on the campaign trail with Warren today but again the challenge for Warren and all of these candidates in the top tier as well as Harris Joe Biden is to keep this momentum going into the debate to have a night that continues to grow support for their campaigns so that's what we're going to be watching for here in New Hampshire today Jessica Victor alright Rebecca buck thanks so much and the lineups are set for the CNN Democratic presidential debates two big nights ten candidates each night the first round Tuesday night at 8 p.m. then make sure you tune in for round 2 Wednesday the live action gets underway at 8:00 p.m. Eastern live from Detroit and it's only on CNN well it's not just Joe Biden going after his rivals ahead of the CNN debates congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard targeted senator Kamla Harris this week saying she lacks the temperament to be commander in chief joining me now to discuss this CNN commentator Bakari sellers who has endorsed senator Kamala Harris Bakari welcome back good morning good to see you guys now I don't know if that smile is that you just happy to be here with us on the show or if you're responding to what you're hearing from congresswoman Gabbard but I want to hear your response to her criticism of Senator Harris the smile is I'm just happy to be here with you guys this morning with 2 6 month-old twins that's all good but with congresswoman Gabbard there's an old Negro proverb that says don't come for me unless I send for you and I think that what's going to happen on that stage is when congresswoman Gabbard comes for Carla Harris that will not go well for her everyone knows her history of homophobic comments our history of homophobia everyone knows that she's an Assad apologist I just don't anticipate that exchange going well for congresswoman Gabbard and at the end of the day I think that what senator Harris is gonna do is just remain above the fray be presidential and only hit when swung yet I mean I think the people actually are looking for a fighter someone to take on Donald Trump and so you can't let hits go unnoticed but she's not gonna go swinging down by any stretch congresswoman Gabbard wants the moment just senator Harris is not the one to play with is there any merit to the concern about her being prepared for foreign policy questions because I think that was the heart of the criticism from congresswoman Gabbard well I mean it sometimes it's not the the question sometimes it's the questioner and so when you when you look at someone who has a history of congresswoman Gabbard especially in relationship will be share all the side that that is not the correct however that is a valid question Victor I mean I think that is one of the things senator Harris is going to have to do is dig into her experience on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and talk about the things that she's learned and explain to people what her worldview is remember we had a great president for eight years Barack Hussein Obama who came in with not very much foreign policy experience however our global stature arose we were not in any we didn't find ourselves in any new unending Wars but you know we he had a foreign policy that outside of Syria most people found to be sound and you understood what his doctor and it doctrine was especially compared to this president that seems to conduct foreign policy by tweet and so yes she's gonna have to outline that in fact they all are because during the first debate I'm not sure we had any foreign policy whatsoever so I expect her to be able to answer those questions it's just very difficult to answer the questions and not just laugh at congresswoman Gabbard with our background well you also have some different pairings here with the second debate that you didn't have with the first we'll see that play out with Booker Biden and Harris together center stage on Wednesday let me ask you about the polls though because after Senator Harris's approach – I'll say it that way the Vice former vice president and the first debates she took a bump in the polls was within single digits of the former vice president now you look at the latest Fox News poll and she's down to 10% Biden at 33 what happened nothing I think what you're gonna see is is that that's what polls do I mean I have to remind people often that this race is very very similar to 2008 and in my opinion Joe Biden is more Hillary Clinton 2008 than here's 2016 I mean we have I believe four more debates including the one this week coming up and what Senator Harris is doing is steadily ticking upward what's in it what what Vice President Biden is doing is and and Bernie Sanders are ticking downward you look at the two people who were rising consistently one is Elizabeth Warren other is Senator Harris which is where you want to be in in South Carolina we go back to those polls I remember rock Obama South Carolina campaign and let's put in South Carolina polls keep going but I want people to see that specifically the numbers with african-americans because if we're continuing your 2008 analogy here and if Harris is is she's at 12% he's at 51 what does she have to do to get those numbers up so I mean that they're two things one Barack Obama at this time was not only behind Hillary Clinton but he was also behind a young man named John Edwards and there were Washington Post piece that pieces that they came out that said that Barack Obama's having trouble with white voters excuse me with black voters and one of the things that I've looked at when you look at the crosstabs in that poll is that still 30% of South Carolina black voters who do not know who Kamala Harris is yes so everybody in the words of Aaron Rodgers the great quarterback from the Green Bay Packers are e lax relaxed this is a long way to go people just have to run in their lanes run their campaigns run through the tape this primary is making people stronger talking about someone's record is not attacking them Barak Obama said it best he was stronger after the very bitter primary he had with Hillary Clinton and so just everybody run their race so you can criticize people's record to be critical of policy all of that is good because when you go up against Donald Trump you're going up against something that we have not seen in American politics and George Wallace is going to be a question of identity and who we want to be as a country and so the gloves it will not be pittypat with him to say the least all right Bakari sellers always good to have you thank you good to see you all right this morning the president attacked another member of Congress on Twitter this time it's House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings he wrote this Cummings district is a disgusting rat and rodent infested mess if he spent more time in Baltimore maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous and filthy place no human being would want to live there infested it's usually reserved for references to rodents and insects but we've seen the president invoke infestation to criticize lawmakers before you see a pattern here just two weeks ago President Trump attacked for minority congresswoman why don't they go back to the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came reminder three of them were born here all of them are American infested he says a week before his inauguration January 2017 Congressman John Lewis has spent more time on fixing and helping his district which is in horrible shape and falling apart not to mention crime-infested Donald Trump has tweeted more than 43,000 times he's insulted thousands of people many different types of people but when he tweets about infestation it's about black and brown people September 2014 at the height of an urgent health emergency why are we sending thousands of ill trained soldiers into in bola of Ebola infested areas of Africa bring the plague to the US Obama is so stupid infested he says there's a revolution going on in California so many sanctuary areas one out of this ridiculous crime-infested and breeding concept infested he says the president says about congressman Cummings district that no human would want to live there you know who did mr. president I did from the day out was brought home from the hospital to the day I left for college and a lot of people I care about still do there a challenge is no doubt but people are proud of their community I don't want to sound self-righteous what people get up and go to work there they care for their families there they love their children who pledge allegiance to the flag just like people who live in districts of congressmen who support you sir they are Americans too we'll be right back seventeen injured after a balcony floor collapsed and a South Korean nightclub some of those hurt were members of the men's and women's US water polo teams there for competition and CNN sports correspondent Vince Cellini is here with more what do we know this one yeah just a horrible turn of events here we go the teams were actually celebrating in the city of Gwangju the women's team had just won the gold medal in the FINA World Championships involving various water sports it happened around 2:30 a.m. local time the balcony floor at the back of the coyote ugly Club collapsed crashing down on those below one witness saying it fell some 15 feet or more around 370 people were in the club at the time two people died both of whom were from South Korea u.s. women's water polo team player Kayleigh Gilchrist you see on the Left suffered a laceration to her leg she needed surgery her teammate Paige hauschild along with men's water polo players Johnny Hooper and Ben Halleck were also hurt us a water polo put out a statement this morning saying all the athletes are accounted for and offering well wishes to everyone involved and severe weather is causing problems at the Tour de France today's stage has been cut in half over concerns about landslides thunderstorms yesterday brought hay landslides cutting that race short as well cyclists who couldn't navigate were transported to the finish line all this as France is just getting over an historic heat wave so somehow life wrapped around sports in this particular report today wishing all the people the best all right Vince thank thank you police in Canada are going door-to-door searching for two teenagers wanted for the murders of three people investigators initially thought these teenagers were missing after their car was found burning on the side of the highway Sunday but two days later authorities named them as suspects saying they should be considered armed and dangerous polo Sandoval joining us now and polo the Canadian Mounted Police are going over a large area now looking for these teenage suspects talk to us about how big this search area is it's massive especially when authorities consider that these two suspects likely went through at least four Canadian provinces here in the search certainly shows no signs of slowing down of anything it has been intensifying particularly this weekend with Canadian police now going door-to-door there in the community of Gillam Manitoba you'll see here on the far right of your screen essentially what we have here are police they're going door-to-door trying to find any trace of these individuals a police in Canada right now believe that somebody in and around that small town may have inadvertently assisted these two young men who continue to be on the run right now in one way shape or form so authorities releasing the surveillance video that was actually shot six days ago in Saskatchewan hoping that it may refresh somebody's memory or hopefully motivates or encourage somebody who may be afraid to step forward to do just that and share some information the meantime for the roughly 1200 people who call Gilliam home there certainly has been a sense of fear and uncertainty that's been prevailing there for the last three days but when you hear from one of the residents there Victor and Jessica you'll really do get a sense of what the terrain is like in and around the area they say these two suspects certainly have mother nature to worry about it's nasty I worked out there I did some diamond drilling there 25 30 years ago and you know if the bears don't get them the bugs will they're gonna be wet and cold now probably a little bit desperate if they're still alive a deputy mayor there in Gilliam adding to what we just heard from that gentleman saying that essentially everybody there is keeping their doors locked right now just taking a wait-and-see kind of approach Victor Jessica back to you big job ahead for authorities their follow signs of all thanks so much a father in New York is in custody his twin babies died inside a hot car so the father says he left the the one-year-old to the back of the car when he went to work yesterday Dianne Gallagher joins us now and Diane what are police saying this morning what are we learning more about this so the father apparently didn't just leave the child in the car according to police he left the child the children in the car for eight hours while he was at work at a nearby VA hospital this is an incredibly sad story it is completely wrecked and devastated a family those two one-year-old twins died the medical examiner is still trying to determine the exact cause of death but their father 39 year old juan Rodriguez has been charged with two counts of manslaughter two counts of criminal negligence it got up to 86 degrees in New York on Friday and when you listen to witnesses describe what the scene was like you can kind of just see what what a horrific situation it was there take a listen on the car talk yelling and screaming some pieces I could hear was like it's not my fault it was an accident when he looked in the backseat all you could see is the officer do this and start shaking his head again those two one year old twins maritza and Phoenix died there on the scene and police believe that they had been in that car for eight hours strapped in again we should point out here this is completely avoidable children should not be left in ate it in a car for eight hours that in a car at any time even if you roll the windows down it's not it's not okay people are forgetful people need help they don't know what to do but you can't leave your children in a hot heart this is what happened you know we have all started our careers in local news and we have covered these stories every summer yeah of children who have been left in those cars eighty-six degrees outside it's no telling how hot it gets inside within ten minutes it heats up within those cars like that even if you leave those windows down eight hours left in a car by themselves one-year-old strapped in those children did not stand a chance it's just devastating all the way around alright thank you thank you well Silla come race policing and criminal justice reform big issues on the campaign trail we're in the twenty twenty candidates stand on those issues that's ahead in the twenty twenty presidential race just this week twenty 20 candidates Joe Biden and Cory Booker went after one another after bright Biden proposed a twenty billion dollar grant program aimed at eliminating mandatory minimum sentences for nonviolent crimes and here with me to discuss all of this is CNN contributor and national reporter covering law enforcement and justice for the Washington Post Wesley Lowery Wesley thanks for being with me of course thanks for having me as we mentioned a big topic criminal justice within the Democratic primary it's been an issue people like Kamala Harris and Cory Booker have used to attack Joe Biden but biden releasing that criminal justice plan this week which as we mentioned undo some parts of the 1994 crime bill that he's been criticized for do you think this is enough for him to stand on when he's inevitably attacked on that issue next week at the debates well so I think you're right I think there's inevitable attacks coming and I think Joe Biden thus far has has shown us that his plan is to counter-attack a little bit to say as he did in the last debate well you know I was a public defender while Connell Harris was a prosecutor he's in counter attack to Cory Booker said well you ran a police department in Newark how about we look at how well they did and I think there are some legitimate points there what what I think is gonna be key for not only Joe Biden but for all the Democrats on this stage because I think that we have this conversation via the lens of Biden often and understandably he's polling way out in front of everyone else but almost every Democrat on that stage has some real inconsistencies in rhetoric and policy over the course of their long careers because there's been a drastic shift in democratic politics and in public and societal expectation around issues of criminal justice so the key for Biden and for any candidate is not just to take all the right positions today and decry their old positions but to tell a comprehensive and understandable narrative how they got from one point to the other right so one really quick example Joe Biden used to brag about how in the crime bill he got all these new death penalty's you know all these all these crimes that before you couldn't get the death penalty for and now you can he would about it right now he rolls out a criminal justice plan where he's against the death penalty he needs to lay out the narrative of how Joe Biden who earnestly believed we should be killing more people now doesn't believe we should be killing anyone and that is a challenge for as you said so many candidates to lay lay out that comprehensive narrative I want to take a look at this new poll out of South Carolina it's a new Monmouth poll it shows Joe Biden with a commanding lead there in South Carolina the first contest where black voters will make up a majority of the primary and also knowing criminal justice reform aimed at ensuring people of color are treated fairly protected from discrimination within the justice system what do you draw from that poll and primary voters thoughts on criminal justice reform what do you think we can glean anything from that well certainly I mean I don't know that this poll provides much insight that the rest of the polls around this have not but but that said I think that those lessons have been pretty consistent the first is that Joe Biden is a clear front-runner as it relates to black and brown voters what we know very often is that the most consistent black and brown voters especially in a primary skew a little bit older skew a step more conservative than say the young black activists who are driving black lives matter right and so that does matter when we're talking about how much he might be punished for a thing like the crime bill or something else but beyond all of that right what we know is that black voters generally like especially in a primary like politicians they are familiar with and fluent in who they know who have been around Joe Biden definitely it's points for that but they also want people who can win even when you go back to Barack Obama and John Edwards and Hillary Clinton right Barack Obama did not get black support until he won Iowa right and so at this point Joe Biden is polling so far in front of everyone else that black voters are kind of saying well we want to we're going with the winner because we think it's important to beat Donald because we want to beat Donald Trump right and this is not theoretical for us we need the Democrat to win if someone else wins Iowa and then if someone else wins New Hampshire those candidates might see a surge in black support as those voters give them a second look and I before I let you go I want to talk about these new tweets from President Trump this morning this rant about congressman Elijah Cummings district involved more victor so eloquently talked about them earlier in our broadcast but he said coming district is a disgusting rat and rodent infested mess if he spent more time in Baltimore maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous and filthy place Wesley this is an American president calling an American city disgusting it's also a president who just attacked for congresswoman because he said they didn't love their country what do you make of this rant this morning these tweets well first of all as you noted the president states just very recently said that if you don't love America you can get out we can go back to where you came from and so I forget which European country his ancestors immigrated from not too many generations ago or which country Melania is from but perhaps the president would go want to go back there if he doesn't like Baltimore right but but that said right these tweets and Victor captured this very eloquently right these this is exhausting it's clearly a not even veiled racism that Elijah Cummings a prominent black member of Congress is not allowed to criticize what experts are calling concentration camps at our southern border because he happens to represent a an inner city it racism is not always about the intent of the speaker although I think the president knows what he's doing here it's about what the listener hears right and so what they see is this black congressman who the president is saying this person is corrupt they are angry they run a crime wrote infested city and what that says to his supporters is oh yeah we don't listen to that guy he's the worst of black America right it plays on every stereotype of black men and black women and our cities and so it's as Victor's comments noted though it's exhausting to be a black person who has to show up time and time again hear this racist vitriol from the president states feel like you're not welcome in this nation and then have to explain it in all these kind of earnest factions but is it really racist or technically is it we're you know for so many people on these issues you read tweets like that and you either know in your gut in your heart what's being said or you want to play a semantic game and I think that that does that's a really point of demarcation right in the divide in our country all right well Wesley Lowery thank you so much for your insight this morning we appreciate it anytime House Democrats are ramping up their impeachment fight against the president how a new lawsuit may be their way of least just yet instead the House Judiciary Committee filed a lawsuit Friday to get grand jury information from the Moller report CNN Sullins efrati has more Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee are going farther than ever admitting the investigation they are already conducting into President Trump could lead to recommending articles of impeachment against him without the full house ever formally voting for an inquiry in fact we are going to see what remedies we could recommend including the possibility of otoscope impeaching we're not limited to that the committee filing a lawsuit in federal court to get the underlying grand jury material from former Special Counsel Robert Mahler's report arguing quote the committee is conducting an investigation whose purposes include determining whether to recommend articles of impeachment committee chairman Jerry Nadler now openly threatening impeachment proceedings the house must have access to all the relevant facts and consider whether to exercise its full article 1 powers including a constitutional duty power of the utmost gravity recommendation of articles of impeachment while also readying a second court case to compel former White House Counsel dawn McCann to comply with his subpoena this court filing is the first time that you're seeing us Telegraph to the court that one of the remedies we have is impeachment I would say we are an impeachment investigation this comes as a 100 Democrats support opening up an impeachment inquiry and a some are growing impatient with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi strategy worried the window for starting impeachment proceedings may be closing no I'm not trying let's get sophisticated about this okay we won't proceed when we have what we need to proceed not one day similar but pressure is growing behind closed doors from top deputies like Chairman Adler who has pleaded with Pelosi privately to allow him to lean into impeachment we may decide to recommend articles of impeachment at some point we may not it remains to be seen and there's no point speculating on whether the speak or anybody else will agree with our decision and that was sunlen Serfaty reporting for us from Capitol Hill Oracle may be trying to undermine Amazon's attempts to win a highly sought-after defense contractor named president turning President Trump against it excuse me yeah tech giants have been battling it out to get the contract to build the Pentagon's cloud computing networks for themselves so we bring in CNN's Michael Warren now to tell us a little more about this controversial contract Michael that's right Jessica this is a big contract ten billion dollars over ten years and Amazon is considered the leading bidder for this contract but President Trump has been speaking out about this recently in the past several days saying it's a contract that may need to be looked at CNN is reporting that President Trump has seen a document prepared by Amazon's competitor Oracle that alleges essentially a conspiracy at the Pentagon in order to grease the wheels for Amazon to win this contract this document is a sort of a flowchart that's got photos of former Pentagon officials Amazon employees and even includes a photo of former Secretary of Defense Jim mattis and and and this flow chart has been seen by the president we don't know exactly how it got to the president desk and Oracle executive telling me that nobody from his office got this document to the president the White House did not return our attempts to get a comment Michael Warren thanks so much next this morning twenty twenty candidates are putting forth their immigration plans and how they're different from president Trump's but before we go to break there's a new cancer vaccine being tested on canines and if it works researchers say it could be tested on humans someday there's more in this week's mission ahead let's go this way go right in here Frasier is here this morning to actually finish off enrollment for a new clinical trial called the backs trial the vaccine against canine cancer study and the vaccine is actually designed to potentially delay or prevent a variety of different kinds of cancer simultaneously dog in human cancers look very similar at the molecular level so if it's successful in dogs we're really hopeful that that will provide really encouraging evidence to pursue the same approach in people yeah a nice work we've been working on this for 12 years we made it by screening 800 dogs for the eight major cancers and then we look to see which components were in common across those eight cancers and we took 31 of those and that's what we made the vaccine for the hope is is that when a tumor arises you will have one or more of those components that we vaccinated against and as soon as the T cells see that in the immune system they'll start reacting against that at a very early step and kill the tumor most people in the cancer community will still say that this is impossible because every tumor is personal they may be right our rationale is that if there's a possibility it might work and the impact would be so big it's worth taking that chance today he's gonna get his first vaccine our dogs are our best when T 20 issue heading into the election CNN's Edie Lavandera takes a look at what Democratic candidates are saying about this key issue and how their views differ from president Trump's what happens here along the u.s. southern border casts a long shadow over the 2020 presidential election and Democrats are pushing their own immigration vision in the age of Trump the president thinks that he can turn people against immigrants in order to distract them from the things that are making it so hard to get ahead in this country right now the constant theme for most Democrats is they are the office of President Trump vowing to end what they see as Trump using immigrants to stoke the fears of Americans we can enforce our immigration laws is to a pole or hold on you manatorian obligations in the vanished nation the two Texans in the Democratic field cast themselves as some of the strongest voices on this issue in April who Leon Castro the former San Antonio mayor who served as Housing and Urban Development secretary under President Obama was the first to unveil a detailed immigration plan while immigration is also a constant theme of former congressman Beto O'Rourke's campaign stuffers both as well as many others in the Democratic field call for a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants already in the country citizenship for undocumented immigrants brought to the US as children known as dreamers and funding for more border wall construction they want to close private for-profit immigration detention centers and reform the immigration court system Castro and O'Rourke have clashed over a section of the law that makes it a crime to enter the US illegally Castro wants to repeal the law making illegal entry a simple civil violation they're using section 1325 of that act which criminalizes coming across the border to incarcerate the parents and then separate them some of us on this stage have called to end that section to terminate it some like congressman O'Rourke have not I helped to introduce legislation that would ensure that we don't criminalize those who are seeking asylum and refuge in this country the detention of families over the last year has shaped the rhetoric of most Democrats Elizabeth Warren is like most of these candidates calling for families not to be detained while their immigration cases are being processed tears families apart no great nation locks children we need at the we must the Trump administration's hardline approach on reducing the number of undocumented immigrants in the country has inspired some candidates to call for the end of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency we don't need this ice though that's the other thing I should say this ice as its form now should be abolished most candidates aren't going that far instead calling for ice to be reformed and some of its immigration enforcement duties to be passed off to other agencies I think it's not just ice it is very clear that the immigration system itself um you've heard some of it and there's a lot more we haven't discussed but today is completely broken it's absolutely broken Democrats are facing accusations from President Trump of pushing for open borders and being weak on security it's a question that will follow these candidates and it is part of what this president is trying to do to really miss inform the American people to say that Democrats don't care about border security we have to enforce our laws and keep our borders safe the shadow of the border is casting a deep divide on the presidential campaign trail ed Lavandera CNN Dallas the bullet-riddled signed for Emmett Till were three white University of Mississippi students posed with guns has been removed the students were suspended from Kappa Alpha fraternity after this photo showing them posing with guns in front of the signs surfaced earlier this week now the Justice Department Civil Rights Division is also reportedly investigating that sigh memorializes Emmett Till a 14 year old African American who was tortured and killed in 1955 his death became an important moment in the civil rights movement the sign will now be replaced in October with the nearly 600 pound sign made of reinforced steel previous signs had been vandalized multiple times for the years Vegas is under siege from thousands of grasshoppers my producer knows I don't like this video but we keep showing it I would die well tell you about swarms of the insects are troubling the residents and the visitors there
