"Whether it's in D.C., or along the I 95 corridor, a little later in the show. We're going to talk about your weekend outlook. So stick around for that and our rain chances for now back to you both. All right, thanks, Samara. Meantime, new this hour, a third person hit by lightning in Lafayette park right across the street from The White House last night has now died. All D.C. police are saying at this point that it was a 29 year old man. This follows the earlier news that a husband and wife from Wisconsin in their mid 70s died overnight after being struck in Lafayette square at the same time, a fourth person who was hit remains in critical condition. Also, today is slow down a show down between the U.S. and China over Taiwan is looming. It was triggered by House speaker Nancy Pelosi's recent trip to Taiwan, where is it all going? WTO P national security correspondent JJ green joins us live with details what do you have JJ? Hillary China does not want this conflict because it's seeing the backlash that Russia has faced over what happened in Ukraine, but it believes that it can't just step back off of its rhetoric that Taiwan belongs to China. Speaker Pelosi essentially defied them when she visited Taiwan this week. And that's not something Xi Jinping is willing to tolerate right now because it makes them look weak. So both countries are looking for ways to diffuse this. But as is always the case, there is the possibility for mistakes and miscalculations with China firing missiles flying planes into Taiwan's airspace and ships moving around all that just complicates this situation. That's why the U.S. postponed previously planned military drills in the region, reporting live, JJ green, WTO news. Well, JJ, what is Taiwan? I have to say about all this. Taiwan's president Tsai ing Wen was defiant earlier in the week as she was hosting House speaker Nancy Pelosi and China was furious about all of that situation going on there with that visit. She said, facing deliberately heightened military threats, Taiwan's not going to back down. She said, we will continue to hold the line of defense for democracy all the while thanking Pelosi for being there. The question that's being asked tonight was, would she say that if Pelosi wasn't there? Is it the essentially the equivalent of her standing behind Pelosi saying, yeah, we're big. We're bad. And this is the way I'm told China is looking at this. They were upset about it because of part of what she said, but also because she said it while Pelosi was there, so it's really a very complicated intense situation now. Thanks so much, JJ. You're welcome. Keep it here on WTO. Lots of rain some thunderstorms mostly affecting the northern part of the beltway and a little bit of the western portion details next. It's 5 36.

"Pookie felt like a loser for not backing Brian's play, but it was just too much. All that death, Robin. Baldwin Metz, Jesse Cheryl, rich verdi. All killed by something that Pookie still couldn't truly accept as real. And what he'd seen in that cavern. How close he'd come to dying himself for now at least. Brian clouser was on his own. Chapter 58. Holding hands. Kissing. Two girls kissing, hands rubbing on backs, soft and tender. Hidden in the shadows of Lafayette park, holding hands. Chameleon felt that cold rage churning inside his chest why did they get to kiss? Why did they get to have each other when he had nothing? No one could stop him now. Sly said savior was dead. The police had staked out ocean beach and Golden Gate park, chameleon's favorite killing grounds. But the police were just human. One pair of detectives had walked within two feet of his position. They didn't notice chameleon, because chameleon looked just like the tree behind which he hid. He hadn't killed that night, but the next night he had it wasn't hard to wait. He waited like a spider. If you sat still and quiet long enough, eventually a couple would come to you. Then you just took them. Chameleon stood the base of a small tree. His chest and left cheek against the trunk. His arms wrapped around the other side. That was how you hid. You just hugged the tree, then made your skin feel and look like the tree. The shadows took care of the rest. The girls drew closer. He wouldn't have even known one was a girl from looking at her. She had short hair and wore a boy's shirt and pants. But he knew how women smelled. No matter what she wore, that was a girl. A girl who would soon be dead. Chameleon thought it was funny to kill in Lafayette park. So close to savior's old house, the house sly had told him to watch for so long. But savior was gone. Sly was in charge now, and sly gave chameleon respect. If chameleon wanted to hunt, that was fine with sly. Maybe this time, chameleon would cut off a head and bring it home for new mommy. She was changing. Changing so fast, but she wasn't ready to have babies yet. Maybe the reason old mommy could have babies was because she ate brains.

Why Is There No Congressional Committee on Afghanistan?

"I wanted to Get into a number of big issues here with you. First of all. We still have American citizens. Behind enemy lines. In the country now controlled by terrorists and backed by China and Russia. Have you noticed our elites? Now I say elites, not because they're superior to us elites because They claim control and power and superiority over us. Have you noticed our elites? Don't give a damn Is there a reason why we have a commission or a committee on January six, but we don't have a committee about Americans right now behind enemy lines in Afghanistan. Is the reason why the Democrat Party leadership Says nothing. Or if they say anything, they don't seem all I worked up about it. Is it amazing to you that General Mattis and General Kelly who were very outspoken about Lafayette Park, which was nothing Have nothing to say about any of this. Isn't it amazing to you? It's amazing to me. The Sunday shows to the extent it was mention, hit and run. Hit and run. And, of course, as you know, in addition to American citizens behind enemy lines, There are Afghans behind enemy lines. Who helped us fight the enemy helps save American lives.

"Of all. The question was not asked is well, really. What was your recommendation to the president? As to whether we should hold on to Bagram or not? And then if your recommendation is to let go of it or to let it go? How do you justify that from the military standpoint, especially considering you know, I I don't even think where you can argue or using the retrospective scope now, But in fact I think that's a reasonable question to ask, Um Regardless. And then finally, let me just ask you that, you know, General Milley had no problem John in front of a microphone, attacking Trump after Trump. Walked through Lafayette Park, and that seems really kind of trite to be complaining about that when you consider what's going on here. Yes, sir. I completely agree. I didn't think there was anything wrong with what he did. Uh, um To be honest with you. I mean, that was a show of that was a show of unity and for like, a better term force. Let me ask you this before we run out of time. How did you find you? You We worked with him What you reported to him when he was a colonel. How did you find him to be as a colonel?

"You feel to. What extent could you. How did you approach the dilemma. That a lot of these people particularly as you get further into twenty twenty and the president is saying inject yourself with bleach or something to that effect during a pandemic are trying to You know they're involved in a reformation project for themselves. You know that yeah. I i guess your question. It's a good one. I like it sam. Is i think more and more. It's incumbent on reporters like myself and phil To sorta show our work like a math class like we. We want to explain to people how we do it in the era of of fake news. And how successful. Donald trump was in in promoting that idea that reporters are making stuff up. I wish i you know if it only it were so easy will be a lot easier to be a reporter. We made stuff up but no. We actually corroborate everything. There are many things we don't publish because we're so careful Even though we think they are true we have to mean a very high standard. I feel as though what's really important is to show our work. And in this instance many people spoke to us on background because they're afraid of the pain in vindication that trump could bring down on their heads if they spoke out against him publicly. That will change over time. I'm sure but we were on guard for folks trying to rewrite history in a way that was more favorable to them. We were on guard for people who are trying to burnish A slightly damaged reputation and tell a story in which they were brave or stronger or more more of an obstacle to donald trump's dangerous ideas than they actually were and what we found was when we went to corroborate some of the claims With people who work fans of those individuals their story stood up and the ones that didn't we didn't publish you know we had to to test these with documents with independent objective witnesses and that was important to us when one of the things that you have to talk about was lafayette park right. Then and then. I guess you also reported in the book that Trump really wanted to bring out the military for for black lives matter protesters and then was was more or less dissuaded from that. But let's talk about the the lafayette park because there was a new inspector. general report. Came out. I guess A month and a half ago maybe two months ago where how did how did that lineup. For the inspector general report says now that they were clearing it for the sake of donald trump but they were clearing it because they needed to put up fencing. Josh is just seems bizarre to me like maybe you wanna do that at night. When nobody's there As opposed to having to bring in a person like well. What's your sense of what happened there. I'm with you. I mean. I think of i reported this in real time. I reported on this Shortly after the fact in a reported it again for the book and each time i learned something new and it did not dissuade me from my earliest instinct. Which is the secret service. Something i know fairly well is never gonna cross that square with a group of protesters gathered there and take the president across it unless that park is entirely cleared and there was no reason to clear the park urgently other than the president's decision that afternoon and his coordination with white house chief of staff and his secret service team to to go across the square for a photo op. Remember that monday morning. June one began with the president livid. I mean trying to rip the skin off people's faces. He was so angry meeting with his chief of staff. His chairman of the joint chiefs staff mark milley. His chief of staff. Forgive me i'm gonna blank mark meadows. His defense secretary mark esper-. He's meeting with them in. Why is he angry. He's angry that it's been reported that he had to be taken to the bunker a couple of nights before. he's not mad that he was taken to the bunker. He's mad that it looks weak that he had to hide from the protesters. The black lives he says to them. Well what are four leaders thinking. I can't even control my own capital my own white house. I can't. I must look weak to them. He wants this fixed and his solution that he devises with his daughter. Ivanka trump that afternoon is instead of bringing ten thousand military troops to the square. He's going to walk across lafayette square and hold up a bible to show that he's got control over this city. He's able to walk out the front door. Sorry that's a long winded. Answer to your question That report by the way that you mentioned. I'm sorry that's a completely incomplete picture of what happened. The inspector general in that case appointed by donald trump Did not interview the key people at the white house or anyone at the secret service. So how can it answer the question of what the purpose was. If you don't talk to do people who were planning the only urgent reason to clear the square that afternoon. I i mean i'm with you. I mean it sounds like just a bizarre decision like we need to do this right now. Coincidentally after we do it the president is here like we need to put this fencing up right now. When there's thousands of people there it just doesn't make any sense whatsoever and and it's not only logistically. It's it's not only rationally dubious. The facts indicate that. I mean the reporting we did for. The book indicates that the real order came from the white house. And and and. I think i i think it was bar If i remember correctly in the sequence of the bar had said that it was his decision that he walked out there and said we. We're going to go across. The whole thing sounded dubious. But it also i find disturbing the idea that like the inspector general which is supposed to be sort of function as as close to an ombudsperson as we can get in the context in this context. Is that highly politicized right. Like i mean like we're that's they're supposed to be independent. And i am wary of reaching a conclusion without facts that the inspector general is politicized. I'm just mentioning a fact. Which is that. He was appointed by trump. He insisted at the time of the report. The politics trump's appointment have nothing to do with the way he's sculpted the report but as a reporter. A journalist researcher that tries to gain the exact same information. I really wouldn't have complete story if i didn't talk to the people who were arranging for the reason to clear the report cleared the square. I hear you i will. I will make that conclusion. Since i don't have those bona days tori exactly exactly Are well let me ask you about this. What did you notice. I mean because one of the things that that That again for me with a with a a story like this for for donald trump is the people around him right like Twenty years ago. If everything was the same you would not have however one hundred plus Congress people and whatever Half a dozen senators vote to decertify the election on january six but the republican party has changed and there may have been people in the white house a year ago. who were trying to put the brakes. On what trump was doing. Don't bring out the military to deal with black lives matter. You know milly your reporting suggested that he thought there was at the very least some attempt at a you know i guess. A coup for lack of a better word..

"It was a year ago on June 1st that we all saw the U. S. Park Police clear Black lives matter. Demonstrators out of Lafayette Park across from the White House followed a short time later by video of President Trump walking to the park for that famous photo op, holding a Bible in front of a church. Well. The official report on that incident was released yesterday and it concludes the decision to clear the demonstrators had nothing to do with the photo op. It was done so that the security fence could be installed. Timeline shows The plan to install defense was underway several hours before the park. Police knew the president was headed there and the park Police knew nothing about the Bible photo, so a big chunk of the media Thought that it was all Trump's fault. Got it wrong. Trump is vindicated. And on Fox Sean Hannity was triumphant as he slammed the now debunked headlines. Remember these fake news headlines last summer NPR Peaceful protesters tear gas to clear the way for Trump Church photo op. NEW YORK TOILET Paper Times quote How Trump's idea for a photo op led to havoc in a park and his guests tacos Mark Levin agreed completely that The New York Times just Lied outright. They covered up the Holocaust. Of course, they're going to lie about what took place in Lafayette Park, and he quoted with candidate Joe Biden said at the time when Americans peacefully protest outside the White House, this president tear guest and for a photo op. Liar. So there you have to conservatives. It doesn't get more conservative than Hannity and live in saying the mainstream media. Got it wrong and Biden got it wrong and who got it right? The impartial inspector general for the Department of the Interior. It occurs to me. This is the exact type of independent investigation that the House approved for the January 6th attack. This tells me there's a chance that it too might completely vindicate Trump. Imagine how much trouble the mainstream media would be. And then So here's my idea for getting Republicans to support that the inspector general who led the Lafayette Park investigation the investigation that left Hannity and live in deliriously joyful is a career official by the name of Mark Lee Green Black. He was appointed by Trump two years ago and confirmed it a voice vote utterly UN controversial. Put him in charge of the January 6th investigation. How could handle he be against that? How could trump be against that? He appointed the guy. So that's my idea. And if that doesn't get Republican support Then they must have something to hide. 7 38.

"Lot of questions surrounding what happened yesterday at the capital from a law enforcement Point of view. You could definitely say it was a massive failure. ABC is Erica Turkey is with us from New York, senior investigative reporter at the bureau. Erin, I'm having a hard time wrapping my arms around this. I mean, even once we saw the march had toward the Capitol. There's no additional law enforcement showed up. What happened? What was the crux of the failure yesterday? Well did that there was clearly a failure in the question is, you know, um Was it complacency? Was it somehow deliberate? Wasn't a lack of planning was a misreading of the intelligence. Those who some of the questions that are being asked today because there's no way that this should have happened. You know, Ordinarily you walk around the Capitol grounds. If you step you know, off the sidewalk onto the grass you got, you know. Seven guys around you being like what the heck and here with seeming ease. Hundreds of protesters than thousands of protesters were able to breach the capital. Um, without much resistance and the way we heard today from both Democrats and Republicans of bewilderment about how that was allowed to happen. Aaron. It literally took hours for reinforcements to arrive. What's the explanation? What our Capitol police saying? What air the jurisdictional leaders saying? We did way We've gotten some clarity about, you know that there were calls for the National Guard. And you know that there seemed to be some hesitancy that seemed to be resolved within a half hour or so, according to the Army secretary who had to clear it with the defense secretary. And, you know, there were even questions about whether President Trump was involved. There was Resistance initially from from Washington, D. C. To have federal agencies involved. They didn't want a repeat of Lafayette Park, which is when protesters were forcibly cleared with tear gas away from you know, Lafayette Park in the White House so the president could go to his photo op. But this was something a little bit different. And there was a mutual aid system activated for the first time since 9 11. But apparently that was really rusty, because when the mutual aid arrived, we're told that They arrived to chaos and confusion and uncertainty as to why they were even there. You know, it's the Capitol Police took several hours to restore order with the help of the Metropolitan police officers and in Washington, But there were few arrests on the hill. Just 14 know many more in the streets of D. C on DSA. There've been a number of questions about How these protesters were treated versus other protesters and why they're just once in a bigger show of force. That's interesting. You say that Aaron, we keep seeing photographs back when black lives matter. We're protesting around the capital compared to yesterday's riots, and the security was much greater back then, and that seems to be very disturbing image. What is being done? What's being talked about to prevent this in the future? What are people saying? We got inauguration coming up in a couple of weeks, and that's the fear is that you know this is going to really change. Posture and you know, on one hand, the Congress has always been viewed as the people's house, right and the grounds even though they are secure, Ordinarily they there's some permissiveness. They're Americans are supposed to be able to walk around. Protests are supposed to occur at the Capitol. That's sort of the whole idea. And, you know, many expressed the fear that that would now be curtailed because of what happened when, in fact, you know we've heard from some of the rank and file capital officers. This was just Uh, poor planning on the part of leadership, ABC senior investigative reporter Erin Cutter Ski with us from the East Coast. Thank you so much. Erin. Thank you. It is 4, 38 and Wtmj.

The night was also devoted to unrelenting and largely unfounded attacks on Joe Biden warnings about a country at risk descending into violent chaos.

Coronavirus task force holds first briefing in months as cases hit record high

"The United States about to hit forty thousand new corona virus cases today. The first time that we've had that many one day, the death toll in the United States closing in on one hundred twenty five thousand people, but if all you did was listened to the president and vice president today, you would be absolutely stunned here what I just said because this is what they said. Today? All fifty states and territories across this country are are opening up safely and responsibly. Well, that's incorrect. It's factually incorrect. They're not I mean eleven. States are currently on pause. Some of them are actually backtracking and closing some things down on plans to reopen Texas and Florida specifically. They are rolling back reopening plans governors of the other nine states. They are not moving forward with the next phase of reopening. So that was incorrect, and then the vice president went on to make this claim. The truth is we did slow the spread. We flattened the curve. So he says we flattened curve, so let me just show you America's curve. So you see, the surge right and then in in March and then you see the plateau. And then you see. The jump there at the end where we are now getting to fifty forty thousand cases today. That was a plateau, and it's on its way back up and I want you to compare the graph to these other graphs. These are countries around the world right? They have that surge at the beginning the UK Germany France Italy Japan South Korea European countries measured in thousands of cases Asian in hundreds, but look what happens at the bottom. They go all the way back down and stay that way. Ours never went down right, and now it's going back up currently with the same steepness of slope as it did at the beginning. And yet the vice president was taking a victory lap during today's briefing and he made sure to credit person number one. Under the leadership of President, trump is the president's made clear credit I believe to our president of the president made that decision. So, where was the president during this briefing while he was somewhere in the vicinity, but he was on twitter, talking about confederate statues, tweeting this image of people suspected of trying to vandalize statue of Andrew Jackson and what he was writing was that many people in custody with many others being sought for vandalisation of federal property in Lafayette Park Ten year prison sentences. It was hours later that the president did finally say something about the pandemic. That's amazing raging right now in the United States like nowhere else here he s. We have work to do that. We'll get it done. while. That's an understatement it. We are learning tonight that people traveling from the United States most likely will not be allowed to even enter the European Union. Banned, because the United States has gotten the virus under control Kaitlan Collins is out front. She's live outside. The White House Tonight Caitlyn. No briefings for eight weeks the White House. Felt like they had to do something here, but then they came out and said everything's opening you safely and responsibly opening fifty states. When that's just you know factually untrue. Yeah. It wasn't the message that some people were expecting the vice president to project from that briefing today after Wednesday's coronavirus task force briefing, and after you're seeing these numbers from this week including yesterday setting a record high of cases per day since the month of April, of course, which is the last time that they had these coronavirus briefings now you would that they would have. have taken more questions. The vice president instead of Aaron only took a handful of them, but before he started taking questions, you saw him arguing saying that he doesn't want the American people to think that because of these new surging infections that the United States where it was two months ago, even though the case numbers per day or mirroring that or beating it and. And of course, the vice president went on to talk about what precautions Americans should be taking. He ticked off a list of things that the CDC has recommended. But Aaron he notably left out wearing a mask when a reporter asked about the fact, that mask have become this political issue. He then only told people that they should be following local or state guidance ignoring the. The fact that the CDC a Federal Agency of course, has recommended that people wear masks when they are out in public, and within the vicinity of other people. He also defended those rallies that he and the president have been holding and encouraging their supporters to come to where thousands of people are put indoors with very little social distancing errand by saying that it was people's. People's right to the first amendment characterizing it more as a personal decision than something that they're organizing and urging people to come in to attend, but I do want to note to striking things that came out of that briefing today was the vice president offering a pretty rosy assessment of these numbers, and then Dr Falcon getting up there and having a very sobering warning. What's to? To come and personal responsibility and this, but also Aaron the vice president saying he believed it's an arguable that the reason that there are more cases in the united. States because there's more testing Dr. burks got up and she was going through these slides and one of the ones she pointed to was Texas where it showed in May as they were increasing testing their positive. Positive test rates were going down in the last two and a half weeks they continue to increase testing, but now those positive test rates Aaron are going up, and that completely refutes with the president and the vice president have been telling people and governors for the last several weeks. All right, thank you very much. CAITLIN absolutely makes the crucial point. Right the percent test rate. Rate is what they're looking at twenty percent of them. Positive that that's that's the relevant point. It's not the absolute number and Caitlyn I. Appreciate Your Time, so let me go now to Dr. Sanjay Gupta and Dr Jonathan Reiner. Who Advise the White House medical team under president? George W Bush currently in Cardiac Cath lab at Gw so so sanjay the vice president today. Came out and presented an alternate reality. he said all fifty states and territories. This country are opening up safely and responsibly. That is quote obviously the have double digit states halting stepping back. They're reopening all together big steps back. Yeah I mean. I. Don't even know where to begin with this particular briefing. You know you think two months. We haven't had a briefing. There's obviously some real trouble spots in the country and I'm. Saying that almost euphemistically I thought there was going to be an acknowledgement that look. We have some problems. Significant ones in here is our plan to address them. Here's what we're GonNa do we're convening the coronavirus task force to to address this? We didn't see that at all. I mean there's the last task force briefing. You can see what the numbers were at that point and obviously just see how the numbers have grown even over the last few weeks. Weeks, so it it it was it was a real concern, and there were a lot of things that were said that were just basically a whitewash of what's actually happening in the country, and that's what I think. Worries me. How are you GonNa fix the problem. If you don't even acknowledge it right well, that's the thing. If you're in complete denial about it, then you obviously don't have a plan to fix it because you don't believe it's their. Running when the president actually gave a nod to this this afternoon, his comment was making a lot of progress with the whole situation, but we have a lot of work to do but he did not attend the briefing instead he was treating about those confederate Mon. Monuments So, you know in the vice president. There was talking about all the encouraging news again. His words talking about Krona virus so. What do you make of this and I guess specifically the president's refusal to be there. Yeah the president. In a tweet about the monument seems to be more interested in protecting long dead confederate traitors. He is in protecting Americans right now. Yeah, I was really appalled.
