"Were peaceful protesters in Lafayette Square near the White House on June 1st marching chanting And then this house at about 6 30 half on hour before a citywide curfew was supposed to go into effect. Police advanced and was seemingly little warning fired tear gas and smoke canisters into the crowd. This was just before President Trump walked across Lafayette Square to pose for a photograph in front of ST John's Episcopal Church. The problem with how this unfolded is that if police wanted to clear the area, they had to warn the protesters first. And they had to do so loudly, so people who didn't want to be arrested could get away. The rules of engagement on DC streets were part of a settlement agreement reached in 2015. It ended a class action lawsuit filed on behalf of people who were caught up in the mass arrests in D. C in 2002. Moreover, Haley in Hilliard founded the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund, which represented some of the hundreds of people arrested back then they were held for 20 for 27 hours or more people were hog tied and stress and duress positions risk the ankle, A US federal judge approved a settlement agreement that's spelled out in detail. Exactly how police in DC needed to warn protesters before moving in. These procedures are very particular. They include, and that's why we wrote them this way, not just that. They have to give notice an opportunity. They have tohave officers at the farthest reaches of the demonstration who are certifying that they've heard that notice. But instructions from the police in Lafayette Square on June 1st were hard to hear..

Obama urges Americans to honor John Lewis' legacy by voting

"For the funeral of Congressman John Lewis rose to its feet with an up roar of applause during a eulogy from former President Barack Obama. Mr Obama talked about the selfless sacrifice of the civil rights leader and that the voting rights he fought for our under siege by President Trump, who's floating the idea of delaying the election. Joining us live to talk about CBS analyst Leonard Steinhorn. Great to have you, Leonard? Happy to be here so to other presidents were on hand. But it was poor former President Obama, who offered this impassioned defense of democratic ideals that he says are being threatened. He's been more outspoken, but not like this. Can you talk about it? Look essentially what President Obama was saying is, if we wanna honor John Lewis's legacy, truly honor it. We need to finish the work of John Lewis's lifetime. Which is to ensure voting rights, for all with no obstacles in anyone's way and in effect. What he did with his rhetoric is he entered the political fray not directly not through partisan attacks, but with clear and pointed assaults on those Particularly Republicans, who were doing exactly what John Lewis fought against all of his life, which is to undermine the voting rights of the American people, So he did it through lofty and impassioned rhetoric. But his message was clear. He was definitely part former president and part preacher today, talking about the protests as well, something that Louis energized in his day is a civil rights leader, nearly losing his life in the fight. Can you characterize what Mr Obama said, and its relevance at this moment in history? So, in essence, what President Obama did was draw a straight line from Bloody Sunday on the Edmund Pettus Bridge from Bull Connor in Birmingham. ER, George Wallace. The black lives matter. And the civil rights struggles of today are voting rights struggles of today. So you know, he basically said Bull Connor may be gone, But today we witness with our own eyes, police officers. Kneeling on the next of black Americans. George Wallace may be gone. But then, he said he worries about the federal government's sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators. Clearly referencing what happened in Lafayette Square when President Trump wanted to go to the church and hold up his Bible. So he drew a straight line from John Lewis in the 19 sixties tow what's happening today, and clearly, that was a strong message that this next generation now has to take the torch. And continue on with the fight that John Lewis began when he was just Ah, young, a young man in 1960 CBS News political analyst Leonard Steinhorn Thanks so much for being here. Thanks Always. By the

But then he had fever, chills, shortness of breath, but is thought it was a cold. You just couldn't shake off. Not have a couple of days. I felt like a backtrack and I was just really run down. This thing lingered and lingered, eventually got a free corona virus test from the city. It was positive. Alvarez and his wife, who also got infected never ended up in the hospital. But he says there were some scary days there. We thought if this starts getting much worse, we start thinking about how we're going to deal with it, how we're gonna pay for it. It was just abject terror as the one that was gonna happen. He lost his health insurance a year ago when he was laid off from his day job in construction safety.

"Of dissent from his ranks so why? Publicly break with the president. Well, you're right. He doesn't like me. Cabinet secretaries contradict him in public, and this defense has been pretty good about trying not to do it when he can't avoid it, but I think you know. He felt a lot of pressure from the professional ranks the military, and so this was an opportunity. I guess for him to recast himself a little bit exhibit, little independence and give voice to the concerns of the armed forces that he is in charge of. You Know Peter. What's interesting is from the story that you've just laid out. This entire episode begins with the President wanting to use the military to. Confront these protesters and getting rebuffed and then coming up with plan. B A workaround. And that is to go visit the church and make a show of strength that way. And that visit is carried out with so much force and so much violence that then creates a backlash that ultimately undermines the very case for using the military in the first place. Yeah, I think there's something to that I mean the basically. The images we saw from Monday night were so striking that the idea of a further escalation of militarization of the streets became politically much harder and already probably too hard, but It in effect. He undermined his own opportunity to do so now. What they say is the mere threat of. It was all he really needed to do that. They didn't necessarily want to follow through on hundred they didn't have to. And the main goal was to send a message and to project toughness in that sense. Perhaps it worked certainly to his voters. He now looks like a decisive figure, but in terms of actually sending American troops into the streets. That now seems to be much much more politically fraught than even had been on Monday. Peter. You've covered this presidency since it began nearly four years ago and you live in Washington DC so. I wonder in the end. What you make of this entire episode of what happened at Lafayette Square. Well I think this is going to be. One of these moments is indelible in our history books. Maybe I'm wrong, but it feels like. You know a few handful of scenes or episodes. Really stand out right. We think of Jimmy Carter in the Malays speech or Ronald Reagan after the Challenger or George W. Bush on the firetruck at nine eleven or worse for him. The mission accomplished speech on the aircraft carrier. Right you, you'd rather as a present have the triumphal moment. Not The embarassing moment will decide which one this is later right now, if people see that through their own lands, but for a lot of Americans, it's going to go down as the moment when he used force in order to clear square peaceful protesters have a photo op. Is So I. think that twenty years from now. When we look back at the trump presidency, this is going to be one of those moments that stands out in the history books for future generations to remember. Peter, thank you very much. Thank you..

"That's the sound of. A mob of counter protesters last night pushing physically against. Police officers until one of. Those cops pulled out a can of pepper spray and just I the crowd this is all going on in Washington DC, right near Lafayette square joining, us now is win Delano WMA. Elle reporter who was there yesterday got. To see a lot of this. Action wind good morning Hey good? Morning Vince how are you good sir so so tell us, first of all the principle purpose of all of this in DC cops and DC metro everyone sort of assisted in getting. This there were these twenty or so so-called, unite? The right ralliers these white nationalists who showed, up right, in Lafayette, square a were you able to get in proximity to where they were actually assembled It's really interesting so. One of the things that it was notable was the fact that these people, do not really follow their own schedule so they. Were scheduled to assemble at foggy bottom March down on Pennsylvania Avenue at, five PM, and a, lot of the counter protesters there were still anticipating that even though they Kessler actually arrived at three thirty with his small group people. Were still expecting more to show up so I think there was a lot of confusion. In the in the race but I did see them walk into the park? Now these guys have been described as anti meaning the reaction to, this the, other the hundreds if not thousands of people who showed up, who, weren't the. White, nationalist have been? Described, intermittently. As counter protesters as, anti hate protesters I've seen Antigua I've seen black block and I'm sure there are a lot of onlookers can you give us. A sense of what the composition of that crowd was I. Would say that the majority of the counter protesters were just, you know people that were people who showed up this part of this Shut it down DC coalition which was. Several dozen groups there wasn't a president of mtpa and there was a presence of black lives matter I actually spent most of my. Day walking around a collection of maybe I'd say one hundred black-clad members of Antigua mass and all, and so they were there and they were. Sitting at the entrance on the corner of Pennsylvania Avenue and seventeenth street where, Kessler was trying to enter and exit now how. Many, of them would you estimate being there of this anti antiques of, the groups, I would, say I asked him it'll be about one hundred and fifty maybe two hundred people so was that a lot was that turnout out. Also a lot lower than expected it seems as if there weren't as many people as. Was expected on both sides well I say there were a lot of of? Kanter president at least it was over a thousand in the counter, protesters and, I mean if you do the comparison math here you have Thousand maybe more and twenty went I I think obviously we're in. Washington DC so could have been you know a a higher counter protests turned up there was? Rain started roughly around I'd say four thirty and I think that's what, the organizers said called. Off the rally and that? Rain might have also been turned out when did you? Spend much time at that corner of seventeenth and Pennsylvania I did spend most of. My, day okay so so from that vantage point I did, see some footage yesterday that suggested there were protesters who are. Shooting fireworks over, the heads of the cops are also, throwing eggs Well one one instance. Of that, there was someone from the crowd and again, I can't I didn't see exactly who it was but it came from that crowd that was sitting there with this primarily members of. NT and they, did throw a lighted firecracker and. That went over, the head, of a group of about sixty. Police, officers who were guarding that kind? Of entrance to that road in front of the White House and it didn't hit anyone that, looks like but it did go over and make a, back what kind of reception. Did the press get from the counter protesters were actually they they, pretty much, just ignored us you know there were. Quite a few press people there, and as long as, we stayed out of the way they stayed out of our way, and that's kind of the unspoken assumption there some of them you know would speak to me others would just you know? Shake their heads and move along now. Would. You say that it was it, was peaceful because we do know that a man was was arrested after pepper spraying someone and they found a slingshot shards of glass stones Middle bolts on him did you Only one set of eyes and. I only be in one place. So. Take that as you, will yeah, from what I saw you know there were swarms of people that were kind of marching up. And down the street kind of I. Did not see any overt violence the, closest it ever came was again, a group of protesters from Tucson or counter protesters from two sides actually went up in camp surrounded a group police on the, corner of h. and seventeenth streets. But least dispersed, in the didn't you know they they just kind of let them coalesce and. There was any punches thrown there I know, that when Kessler tried to exit there was a crushes people tried. To kind, of get towards him but again I I like to emphasize a lot of people in that. Crowd didn't know where tesla was there were still expecting a group of three or four hundred white. Supremacists to come down Pennsylvania Avenue so there. Really wasn't a. Lot, of organization they're all. Right well thank you so much when we we appreciate you putting yourself out. There yesterday I don't. Know, if that's something I. Would be, happy doing so thank you for doing that My, job wins wins wins ready? For it I knew it before I even left I was.

Swallowed up by some very big counterpart crowds there, were all kinds of shouts of go home and this was at. Washington's foggy bottom subway station in the afternoon and you had police officers escorting the group as. They make their way towards Lafayette square park if you've ever been there There's a crowd of counter protesters chanting Nazis go home there were confederate flags there. Were shouts of shame shame shame and, these anti-racist protestors have. Been gathering as part of a series of what they call? Counter protests planned in DC led by members of forty anti-race, ISM groups the shutdown DC coalition would be one of them a lot of people. Talked about that they had their own rally at. Noon on Sunday to counter the unite the right to is that. That's what it was called so large large crowds from all over the place mostly the counter. Protesters were the bigger crowds They, were you. Know they were all. Over the place and I'll, tell, you, what in the last couple of months there's been massive anxiety over racial bias and racism and we've seen these instances that keep coming up where police are being. Called out to sometimes innocuous situations which is very. Very sad because this is something that should be taken seriously obviously in the meantime you have the story of the immigration lawyer of Milania Trump's parents pushing back against. Trump's immigration, proposals so what does that mean well. The lawyer representing first lady Malania Trump's parents Again are taking a hard line as far as the stance on her family's family visa, that really kind, of paved the way for the inlaws citizenship so now what. A. Crazy story that, is if you think about it because I'm here she is the first lady so you have Michael. Wilde his name is who? Said, it's unconscionable to scare people into believing that This things are just going to this whole notion of chain migration is a, beautiful kind of bedrock of immigration law and policy called family. Reunification while says that he's talking about his, personal beliefs and not on behalf of the, first lady by the way, or her family and their. Lawyer he says imagine this people will work harder and harder in love More and do more for America knowing that their loved. Ones their, immediate relatives are parents our children can bring one relative and not another relatives is ridiculous I can understand some of them may be in jeopardy he might not want to retool them he went on and on about that he. Was one of the talking heads that we saw? Over the last couple of days as far as politics, is concerned so again the immigration lawyer for the first lady's parents, push back against what the, immigration proposal is saying that it's ridiculous and he also by the way you said that. Melania Trump absolutely knew he was coming on, Aaron brunettes CNN. Program so how.
