"4 .15 I'm Shawn Anderson. I'm Anne Kramer thanks for joining us. President Biden's son Hunter Biden is open to testifying in public before the Republican led House Oversight Committee as part of an impeachment inquiry of his father President Biden his lawyer in a letter sent to the panel today it says could happen as soon as December 13th but the question is will it happen? Well joining us live is CBS News Senior Investigative Correspondent Catherine Herridge. Catherine good to talk with you again this afternoon. So why is Hunter Biden's team pushing so hard for his public testimony here? Well in the letter attorney from his to the Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee Abby Lowell says that they would prefer to have an open testimony rather than an interview behind closed doors because he says that in the past they've seen strategic leaks that can distort the evidence that's presented in the testimony but that wasn't enough for the Republicans who are point making the that this is part of how they've been operating the investigation. They first do depositions and they have open testimony. And to go into that a little bit how are Republicans on the Oversight Committee reacting to this request? Sure, so what we anticipate at this point is that the Republicans have in effect shut the door on public testimony from the president's son on December 13th. They're saying that he must be held to the same standard as someone else who subpoenaed to appear before Congress and the subpoena was for a closed -door deposition and then providing documents. Their argument is that they like to do this in two stages. They have the closed -door deposition as kind of a fact -finding stage they and have then the public testimony where they say they can be more targeted in their line of questioning. And it true is that that's how they've handled some of these whistleblowers who've come forward from the IRS behind closed doors and then that very public testimony. So that's where it stands, but it's not clear whether Hunter Biden and his team will agree to those terms. So how much of a reaction and overall is this having to the investigation of Hunter Biden himself with this request? In terms of the congressional investigation, I think it's really starting to reach its climax in a lot of ways, but all of this is unfolding against a backdrop of the special counsel David Weiss. We know through our reporting at here CBS News that a grand jury is sitting in California and considering the president's son's case and whether tax charges will ultimately be brought in that jurisdiction and charges even that relate to foreign lobbying laws. If that happens and if it does, the expectation is that it would be felony because the misdemeanor deal fell apart in the summer. President's son is looking at potentially prosecutions in two different states, California and then the gun charges in Delaware and then what's happening on the Hill. So it's not getting more streamlined, it's in getting fact just more complex. Catherine, always good to talk to you. Thanks much for helping. Thank you.

"Service and devices, actual speeds vary. This is WTO P news. 1245, and I'm Mark Lois, we're learning more about what appears to be classified U.S. documents that recently turned up online. The Pentagon says those leaked materials pose a serious security risk, giving the world a rare look at how the U.S. gathers intelligence on adversaries and on allies. He or CBS senior investigative correspondent Catherine herridge, getting reaction to the league. We don't know who's behind this. We don't know what the motive is. Pentagon officials are working to identify the source of leaked war documents meant for senior decision makers like the joint chiefs of staff. Pages seem to be drawn from classified military briefing books, including CIA updates. Not even The White House can say if the crisis is contained. We don't know. And is that a matter of concern to us? You're darn right it is. How serious is this situation? This is very concerning. Republican congressman Mike Turner, chairman of the House intelligence committee, was briefed Monday. The access to these documents would presuppose some access to even additional and more documents that might be of greater concern or higher classification. The leaked information is largely focused on the war in Ukraine, with the spring offensive against Russia approaching the documents apparently reveal Ukraine's reported need for new munitions, so acute, its air defense could crumble. A former Intel official says it also indicates that the U.S. and others may be keeping tabs on the Ukrainian president's conversations. I think it's really a new frontier in many ways. HR McMaster, former national security adviser and CBS News contributor says the apparent mix of authentic and doctored records looks like disinformation warfare. The combination of elements of truth with falsehoods to advance and adversaries agenda. He also warns it could potentially impact diplomatic relations. Some of these leaks can draw into question our reliability, our trustworthiness with allies who are going to have to do some damage control. Pentagon investigators are tracking who had access to the classified material the Justice Department has opened a criminal probe, the head of the House intelligence committee, told CBS News, it could amount to espionage.

"Being with us tonight. President Joe Biden has signed a bill requiring declassification of intelligence documents related to the origins of COVID, the new law directs the federal government to declassify any and all information relating to potential links between the Wuhan institute of virology and the origins of COVID. CBS senior investigative correspondent Catherine herridge joined our Dmitri sodas and Hillary Howard with more. This will be a multi agency declassification and the director of national intelligence as the nation's top intelligence official has a 90 day window to provide the declassified declassified documents to Capitol Hill. So we should see it sometime in the next three months pending a release from lawmakers. Are there intelligence reports that stand out here? Absolutely, if you think back to January of 2021, there was a State Department fact sheet that was released that talked specifically about several researchers inside the Wuhan institute of virology who had become sick in the autumn of 2019 with COVID like symptoms. And this is considered extremely important because it predates the identification of the virus here in the United States and other parts of the world. So understanding what the underpinning was for that finding is super important. So from the beginning, there's been a lot of focus on the Wuhan institute of virology. Why has it been so difficult to actually figure out where this originated? Well, there's been so much focus on the Wuhan institute of virology because they were doing research with the closest cousin to COVID-19. And they've had spills from that lab in the past. And the Chinese government has not been transparent about the work that was done there. Some of which we know through our reporting had the support of U.S. grants from NIH as well as USAID. The bottom line is that there's this lack of transparency, the Chinese government has wanted to find an animal link to the pandemic, perhaps more than anyone else. And we had recent congressional testimony that about a 100,000 animals had been tested and still they had not found the host for COVID-19. So it's a lack of transparency. It's the complexity of the pandemic. And not really being able to understand with total clarity what the nature was of the research in Wuhan and why those researchers became sick so late in 2019 before the pandemic was declared. That is CVS senior investigative correspondent Catherine herridge.

"And I'm Shayna Steen, thanks for being with us. Two of the four Americans kidnapped in Mexico have been found dead. The other two have been rescued. One of the two survivors severely injured, the group of friends traveled from South Carolina. So one of them, a mother of 6, could get a medical procedure in Mexico. Joining us live on Skype CBS News senior investigative correspondent Catherine herridge, Catherine, what are you learning about the cartel that may have been behind this attack? Well, a U.S. law enforcement source has told CBS News that investigators believe a group called the gulf cartel is one of the oldest organized crime groups in Mexico is responsible for the attack on the Americans. Based on our reporting, though it's not clear yet to investigators, whether this was an ambush, a case of mistaken identity that they were drug traffickers or somehow caught in the crossfire of these warring factions with the gulf cartel. What has the State Department confirmed for us about these Americans? Well, the State Department didn't have a lot of additional information, but they confirmed that two of the Americans had returned to the United States and they were working to repatriate the remains of the two that were killed by the cartel. It's a difficult situation to say the least, but it does seem that they've been working expeditiously to try and get the return to the United States. Yeah, I imagine. We've been reporting that one person has been arrested, at least Mexican officials say that. How does the Justice Department fit into all of this? Well, the attorney general told reporters that he's getting regular briefings from the FBI. He didn't go into what prosecutorial steps might be next door and investigative steps. But we know through our reporting here at CBS News that it would not be unusual for the U.S. to seek the extradition of a suspect for prosecution in the United States. And this is a fairly routine as these kinds of cases go. So this would certainly be a possibility in the murder and the injury of these Americans. Catherine, thanks as always, appreciate it.

"Com today and schedule your free in home estimate We have breaking news on WTO P, Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner have been subpoenaed by the special counsel investigation of former president Donald Trump's effort to overturn the 2020 election results. The New York Times reports that special counsel Jack Smith is demanding the pair testify before a federal grand jury. This news comes just two weeks after mister Smith subpoenaed former vice president Mike Pence. Mister Pence plans to fight the subpoena by arguing that his former role as president of the Senate shields him from certain Justice Department demands. Keep it here on WTO P, we will bring you more on this developing story. For 11, we now know the transportation secretary Pete Buttigieg will be traveling to east Palestinian Ohio tomorrow a day after former president Trump's visit to that area. CBS senior investigative correspondent Catherine herridge joins us live on Skype hello, Catherine. Hi, thanks as always for having me. Thanks for being here. So you've been investigating this derailment in Palestinian. What are you learning? We've been working with the environmental advocate Erin Brockovich and she's had a number of whistleblowers come forward and in one case they provided documents to her. It's an internal document from the EPA regional office in Chicago to the Norfolk Southern railway company and the key thing here is the timeline. It was written on February 10th and it talks about these toxic chemicals either known to have been or continue to be released into the air, the surface soils and the water. And that does not sync up with the public claims from the governor two days earlier that it was safe for residents to return to east Palestinian. One of the many questions here was whether or not there was an option to contain the chemicals rather than burn them. Was there indeed an option here? Well, Erin Brockovich said that she'd heard through a number of whistleblowers that there was an option to try and contain the materials to sort of in effect suction them out from the railcars. But in instead, what she told us is this hole was dug, and then the fire was started and in her view, contaminating the water table. And that this decision up front is what has made this spill into derailment so much worse and sort of the critical question from our point of view is was this a decision that was made in isolation by the real company or was it done in concert with the state or the federal authorities? Catherine also today there's a new report that physical attacks on the U.S. power grid rose 71% over the past couple of years. More serious incidents are even expected this year. Can you dive into that for us? So we first got an FBI, what's called a sort of situational awareness report in January that was circulated to state and local law enforcement. And it confirmed, in my view for the first time that there are dozens of open FBI investigations into attacks on the power grid in more than a dozen states. So what explains it? They're seeing theft. They're seeing arson, they're seeing tampering and then also shooting, like this alleged plot in Baltimore recently. And in many cases, they think these are opportunistic or criminal, but of course we all understand that when these groups are successful and there's an ideological component, it takes on even greater ramifications. Catherine good to talk to you again. Thanks so much. Thank you. Catherine herridge, CBS senior investigative correspondent. It's four 14

"A nearly 6 decades, one of the first black officers in the army's elite green berets will get the Medal of Honor, which is the nation's highest combat award for his heroism in Vietnam. On Monday, President Biden personally called retired colonel Paris Davis, who now lives in Alexandria with the news. CBS senior investigative correspondent Catherine herridge first reported on the Davis case two years ago, she joins us live now on Skype. Catherine good to have you back. Thanks much. Thanks as always for having me. So what explains the delay here? Well, in 1965 and then again in 1969, Paris Davis Medal of Honor paperwork was lost twice by the army. Davis and this team of volunteers, many of them veterans say race was a factor. And then this was compounded by the bureaucracy, which unfortunately can have the habit of perpetuating these injustices. But its remedying that Catherine, and it's because of what happened on the battlefield in Vietnam in 1965. In 1965, at the battle of bong song, then captain Paris Davis was ordered to clear out by his commanding officers. And he disobeyed that order because he had two soldiers who were pinned down by snipers on a rice paddy, one of them had been shot in the head, the medic and the other had multiple gunshots to his legs and could not walk and Davis crawled out over several hours onto that field and he pulled both of them to safety. One was Billy Wong, who went on to have a very celebrated career in special forces and CIA and the other Robert Brown never regained consciousness, but he was able to die at home in Ohio with his family. What a story. Are there other deserving veterans who should be recognized but are tied up in this red tape? One of the things we learned in our investigation is that there are probably hundreds of deserving veterans like Paris Davis who will never be recognized in part as one historian told us the service award system is broken. And the paperwork for many of these veterans is just on index cards. It's not digitized. And a lot of that history is being lost. I know another veteran here in the Washington D.C. area very similar action to Dave's. But there's just not simply any paperwork to begin this process of proper recognition. So they can't make a commitment to remedy this. Well, the Defense Department and the archives could absolutely make a commitment and that just may be our follow on story because we are losing history every day and the records of these service members.

"Weekend, Police found guns, ammunition, body armor and drugs at a hotel near course field in Denver. One of the four suspects arrested as a result says, however, there was no plot to shoot fans taking part in festivity surrounding the baseball All Star game tonight. Still, speculation is swirling about how those weapons were going to be used. Joining us live on Skype to talk more about what she's learned CBS News senior investigative correspondent Catherine Herridge Catherine We know the FBI is deeply involved here. What is their assessment? Well, Based on our reporting here at CBS News, the Denver police remain the lead agency. But the FBI in Denver has taken the unusual step of putting out a statement that they had no reason to believe that the weapons, the ammunition and the body armor or in any way connected to terrorism or a direct threat to the game through my own reporting. What I've learned through my contacts is that investigators have been very busy scrubbing the digital media of the suspects, so phones and Computers and social media to try and determine whether this may have been part of a broader conspiracy. Or it was limited to the four individuals they've already arrested. While these four suspects have been in court, what are we learning about the weapons and the drugs and a possible motive? Well, one of the suspects recorder. Rodriguez did a jailhouse interview with the CBS affiliate in Denver. And in that interview, he described the arsenal that was in the hotel to include a handful handful of sniper rifles as well as some assault rifles, ammunition and body armor. He claimed that the individual who brought the weapons to the hotel room, which is really just A block from Coors Field was trading the weapons with individuals collecting them as part of a debt and maybe even training trading them rather for drugs. So he emphasized that this was not about the game. It was about something completely different. Observers say. The hero in all of this is the hotel housekeeper saw something and said something. Do we know anything more about that? Well, the housekeeper has really stayed in the background for now, But what we learned at a news conference is that the hotel had really trained people on what to be on the lookout for and then how to act if they saw something that was suspicious, and this is really a reflection of what was a seminal moment for big events like the All Star Game and then also hotel security, which was the shooting in Las Vegas. In 2017 when that lone gunman opened fire on the music festival and killed dozens and injured hundreds more And really, security has never been seen the same way again and we saw that play out.

Utah Senator Mitt Romney sat completely still, as he watched video of Capitol Police officer Eugene Goodman direct him away from incoming rioters. He later said it was overwhelmingly distressing an emotional and said he looked forward to the chance to thank Officer Goodman later. Democrats, in particular, were very upset to watch footage of writers hunting for Speaker Pelosi in the capital and then banging on the door of a conference room where several members of her staff had barricaded themselves just moments earlier. This is Rebecca Kaplan on Capitol Hill. This is a law enforcement source tell CBS News of new leads in the riot investigation, one of them concerning advanced trips to the capital.

"Keyes, Illinois's governor, is sending some 500 National Guard members to the nation's capital to help with security. At the request of the Defense Department. The announcement this week comes one day after the U. S. Department of Homeland Security issues a rare warning of threats from violent domestic terrorists who have been emboldened by the deadly assault on the U. S Capitol earlier this month. The agency says the environment could continue for several weeks. CBS News Senior investigative correspondent Catherine Herridge joins us with more but this is the first alert of the Biden administration. And what we know through our reporting here at CBS News is that the Department of Homeland Security does not have intelligence about specific or credible threats, but they are anticipating that more violence is possible in the weeks ahead. Especially the targeting or possible targeting of elected officials as well as federal buildings. So what groups are they talking about? Are they talking about single people or groups of people? And are they talking about a particular political leaning? One of the striking things about this bulletin? Alison is that it's very politically neutral. It doesn't label groups on the left or on the right. It talks about domestic violent extremism. Or what law enforcement calls DVDs and based on the way the document is written, it says they have a number of grievances. Whether it's the 2020 presidential election grievances that are based on false information or false narratives, and then also the impact of the cove in 19 lockdowns. So was talking about not just individuals. It also groups acting in concert to carry out violent acts. So are they suggesting that there's anything that the general public should watch out for our public buildings or elected officials being targeted here? This bulletin is what I would call a situational awareness document. It's put out very publicly, so all of us can read. And if you do see something that seems off for a little out of place, We're asking the public to speak up not to remain silent. I'm wondering, Catherine, you've been covering this beat for a long time. And it seems like for the last several months, the whole Mantra out of law enforcement has been terrorism, terrorism, terrorism. Do you think that this is going to shake out and calm down any time soon, Or is this something that we need to look out for the long haul? Well. This document from Homeland Security says they believe that this heightened threat environment will go on for at least several weeks. The document does not expire until April. What also has my attention. Alison is that it talks about the impact of the successful breach on January 6th at the Capitol. It talks about that act may embolden some of these groups. In other words, people who've been thinking about taking violent activity saw what happened on January 6th and what they perceive as the successful breach of that building and this will give them The mo mentum to carry out the acts themselves and really briefly. I understand that there are lawmakers now that say that they are in fear of their personal safety and the wake of that attack on the capital. We confirmed here at CBS News that bipartisan group of House lawmakers about the 30 have written to congressional leadership, and they're asking to use some of their office allowance for personal security. When they're outside of Washington, and they don't have the protection of Capitol Hill police and that's a direct reflection of this heightened threat environment. CBS News Senior investigative correspondent Catherine Herridge Federal investigators are looking closely at the role of far right nationalist groups such as the three percenters, the oath Keepers and the proud boys and whether they communicated during the attack on the Capitol that left five dead and whether they had a role in helping to plan the assault. CBS is Lilia Luciano has been covering the proud boys and joins us with the latest since Social media Platforms did something about the radicalization, the hate speech and all that and removed a lot of accounts out of whether was Facebook and Twitter. Lot of these groups have gone underground. In a way they're converging in places like telegram and it's and they're kind of competing in the way that I think the algorithms in the past and YouTube Would AH push content towards you. That's more extreme. Now. The groups like groups like the Boogaloo Boys, and The Proud Boys almost seems like they're competing amongst each other to see which one is more radical. So a few months ago or several weeks ago I interviewed and to get that video the chairman of the proud boys who likes to say, You know we're not racist. Look at me. I'm after the Latino. I'm Cuban. We're not, you know, anti Semitic were not male showman is just show Veniste's basically, you know, West, his best kind of ideologies. Where is that was the messaging before now, after the insurrection. Ah, lot of their messaging has become just pure hate speech. Ah, lot of their their means are more offensive than they were. Well, maybe a little bit kind of like they were in parlor. But I think a lot more radical because in places like telegram, they more anonymous. It's not like your personal profile as much as just whatever nickname you have, so they're communicating. About things like that. Another thing that's been interesting about the proud boys for say's that they've kind of turned on Trump ever since President Trump denounced the insurrection and didn't pardon the people who took part in it. They're they're just turning on him, too. And they're they're trying to, uh, assemble and elevate the So called patriots or what they would call Patriots is some kinds of heroes and anybody who considers into radical to be, I guess against their valleys. So are they. Are they advocating for more violence in the wake of the storming of the capital and this new and their new animosity toward the former president? Or are they just in the process of organizing more deeply now? I think it's there were more in the process of organizing. A lot of their messaging is is hateful and can be violent. But I haven't seen anything like you know, actually the day of the inauguration. I did see some some videos that seem to push for gatherings or protest or things like that. And the messages that were used were very offensive and very violent. I haven't seen that right now. I think now they're kind of in the business of growing they're following and doing so, in the most radical ways. CBS is the Leo Luciano, California.

"O. P. S. We've been reporting this afternoon. Authorities are looking into the possibility that last week's deadly ride inside the U. S Capitol was planned. And as that investigation picks up momentum, authorities are also warning of more violence in the days leading up to President elect Joe Biden's inauguration next Wednesday, joining us now via Skype to talk about her reporting, CBS senior investigative correspondent Catherine Herridge Katherine always great to have you with us. What are we learning about this new intelligence fortune? This intelligence bulletin is a joint bulletin from FBI Homeland Security as well as the NCTC, the National counterterrorism center. They track terrorists overseas and then also extremist groups here in the United States. And it's a very long and complicated document. I was able to review it. But I think the most important headline is that it assesses that the successful breach of the capital on January, 6th will on Lee embolden extremist groups to carry out violent attacks not only in the near term but also in the medium term as well. So what is behind these extraordinary threats? Well for lack of a better term, it's like a sort of a witches brew of condition that has come together. So, for example, There is political division racial Division, the tension and pressure of the lockdowns and then the ultramarine tive about fraud during the presidential election, and all these factors have come together to create. Essentially highly toxic environment that has taken these groups from thinking about actions toe actually carrying out these actions, and again, I come back to this idea. January. 6th is so important because it was a successful action in their minds, and it's embolden them or strengthen their resolve to act again in the future. Katherine can you kind of rate the concern Of law enforcement on this. Well, I would just say in my own view. I've been here in Washington since October of 2001. And I first started covering this issue when Tom Ridge was the White House homeland security adviser and the depth and breath of the concern not only for next week, but really in the weeks and months ahead. I think it's probably the gravest I've ever seen it in part because we're living in a time where there's a tsunami of information. And it's extremely difficult for investigators to discern whether Statements made online are credible or whether this is aspirational or wishful thinking on their part part and they have to make these decisions you know, in a very truncated time line, and that's that's difficult under the best of circumstances, but the information flow right now it's just extraordinary.

The board invited immigration officials to explain blind why it was needed. Dominic folder chaired the discussion. This law is from forty years ago from the Cold War period and the bureaucracy that is being applied to administer it is from the same era. How can you justify this. They they onerous for seizure this procedure that causes a lot of difficulty an inconvenience to people. I can absolutely understand that skip your heart Tom doing that but understand us. You're going to know that you start that hot. We've tried to make things easy. System is erratic non-functioning so basically a system has been launched which people like this are expected to deal with the does not work is is that a good way of doing things is about telling your wife that you're already at home. Trust me is went back and forward like these four hours with the immigration officials giving away little to satisfy the frustrations expressed by the crowd and insisting the changes are needed to catch foreign criminals both just going back to this idea of why why this suddenly became because nobody has noticed a particular deterioration and in the security situation in Thailand. It's not apparent on the outside surface things. It's been changing in the country Thailand in all over the world. The the criminal amid is getting stronger. The requirements are so onerous landlords some apartment complexes are erecting signs saying no oy foreigners while others jokingly say the new tourism slogan in Thailand is travel less. A group of experts have launched a petition against it and perhaps even more concerning is the impact on investment with some investors weighing up whether it's just too hard to do business here. Luckily Luckily I have a local office manager. Who's able to help me out with the paperwork but this was just one of the many steps required of me as I madly sought about getting Ching my visa. We started the process even before left Australia bought. It still took three months to gain approval. When I got an interview with the immigration in department fairly soon after my arrival I thought it would sail through but no it dragged on and on and because of the time it took I had to travel in and out of the country a few times to renew my tourist visa and then my husband and I were required to travel to the Thai Embassy in another country to register for a journalist visa. We thought we could go in and out in one day but as we eagerly lined up in a long line of other expensive tie embassy input on pen. We were told it would take three days to process. That's only gave us a three-month visa from there. We had to apply to extend it for for a year. I had started to wonder if I can get my visa before my year-long posting was over then a week later back in Bangkok and after hours of waiting in the immigration office we had good news. We finally gained approval a few days later. I found out I was being posted to our Washington Washington bureau so the process dance all over again. Let's hope this time it doesn't take quite so long. Catherine this with final report out of Bangkok.
