House GOP members fell into disarray on this opening day of the new Congress, refusing by more than a dozen votes to elect McCarthy in multiple rounds before finally adjourning until noon tomorrow. McCarthy is fighting to become speaker as his party takes slim control of the chamber. The mood was tense as voting by all House members left McCarthy well short of the majority he needed. McCarthy was battling right Flank conservatives who refused to give him their votes. We're going to speak live with national journalist editor in chief at 7 ten. So stay with us. New this evening locally, some students at a top ranked high school in the area have gotten national honors, but a delay by fairfax county public schools and telling them means the owners were not included in their college applications. Now, Virginia's governor says that is grounds for an investigation. This involves kids that Thomas Jefferson high school for science and technology in fairfax county and the impacted students were honored by the national merit scholarship corporation as commended students in governor Glen yunkin says he stunned notification of this achievement was delayed. He wants a Commonwealth's attorney general Jason Millar is to look into this because he says students and parents deserve answers. Mars office says it's reviewing the allegations. Shawna yasha tells WTO her son didn't know until November when students normally are notified about this in September. It's stressful enough on these kids when they're applying for universities. You never know what these colleges are looking for. School system says human error was behind the delay of notifications. Mike Morello. A fairfax county public school statement says the people in charge know about the governor's letter and will cooperate with the state if there's an investigation. The school system also said this already begun a third party independent investigation. Tonight, the superintendent, doctor Michelle Reid will speak with parents at the school, WTO has a reporter there. 7 O 5, a change that's been a long time in coming to D.C. and how it penalizes crimes is a legislative hockey puck between the mayor and the council this evening. Mayor muriel Bowser has announced plans to veto the revised criminal code one lawmaker says her veto won't stand. Mayor muriel Bowser sent her veto and a letter stating her concerns about passing the revised criminal code act to council members. Anytime there's a policy that reduces penalties. I think it sends the wrong message. In response, chair of the public safety committee, Charles Allen issued a statement stating the council would override her veto and noting the legislation as a product of, quote, a 16 yearlong effort. The overhaul of the more than century old code would lessen the sentences for most nonviolent offenders, while allowing prosecutors to seek harsher penalties for more serious crimes. Allen says quote, a veto sends a message to keep the status quo, one that is clearly shown, it doesn't keep us safe. 2023 has started the way 2022 ended in the district at least when it comes to this terrible gun violence tonight. Police are investigating 5 separate shootings across the nation's capital since only yesterday and there may be even more this evening. Detectives are investigating crime scene evidence and reviewing surveillance video. The last shooting was Monday night in a bus bay at the Congress heights metro station. Police say a 17 year old was shot and killed, the 14 year old with him is expected to survive. D.C. police commander John bran says he's tired of having to come to these shootings. We

"To that top job. After the first ballot resulted in votes for several Republicans in the next two rounds, saw McCarthy's opponents coalesce around a new contender, congressman Jim Jordan of Ohio. He was a long time McCarthy ally, it is the first time though in 100 years the majority party has failed to agree upon a candidate for speaker, and it's not clear what McCarthy's next steps will be. Stay with double D TOP for frequent updates from our Mitchell Miller on Capitol Hill. Being among the national merit scholarship corporations commended students is a big deal, and it's an attention grabber on college applications, those students at a top ranked school in fairfax county say there was a big delay in finding out about their achievements. And that has Virginia's governor calling for an investigation. Normally commended students find out from their school in September, but students at fairfax county's Thomas Jefferson high school for science and technology didn't find out until late November, well after they applied to college, this delay has Virginia governor Glenn youngkin stunned and in a letter to attorney general Jason VR as the governor wants this looked into. Fairfax county public schools says human error led to the delay in telling students, but Shauna yasha, a parent of a commended student told WTO, she was told by a staff member that the delay was intentional. The other students who didn't receive the awards wouldn't feel so bad about not getting them. Mars office confirmed it received the governor's letter and is looking into the allegations against the school, Mike Murillo WTO news. The fairfax county public school system says it's aware of the governor's letter, and it says it shares the governor's desire to get to the bottom of what happened tonight, fairfax county public school superintendent, Michelle Reed is going to talk with parents at TJ, WTO will be at the meeting. 6 O 5, there may not be enough judges to handle the strain a new law could put on D.C.'s judicial system. It is one of the reasons mayor muriel Bowser says she will veto an overhaul of the city's criminal code, but now the council is firing back with plans to override her veto. Investigative reporter Megan clarity has our report. For 16 years, work has been going on behind the scenes at city hall to overhaul the criminal code to essentially change the consequences that D.C. assigns to certain crimes. Chair of the committee for public safety Charles Allen says in a statement, he won't let mayor muriel Bowser's veto stand. Quote, you couldn't ask for a more thorough process to craft a bill that modernizes an overhauls what is consistently ranked as one of the worst criminal codes in the United States. End quote, Bowser sent a letter to the council with her concerns about the revised criminal code act. What this law would suggest is that the number of trials would skyrocket. There are still 8 judicial vacancies where the city's criminal cases are tried at D.C. superior court. Meghan cloher a WTO news.

"Always have unfinished business in Waco. It's early April, week 5 of the standoff. At the FBI command post Byron sage sits at a desk, waiting for an important meeting, a meeting that could set the standoff on a new course. After Gary nesse was removed as chief negotiator, sage stepped in as the de facto leader of the negotiating team. He was sorry to see Nestor go, but he's continued to push hard for a peaceful solution, even if progress has been slow coming. Sage has spoken on the phone with David koresh and Steve Schneider almost every day for 5 weeks straight, but it's been two weeks since any adult has walked through the doors of mount Carmel. Koresh hasn't released any children in more than a month. Sage stands up. It's time for his meeting with the FBI's commander Jeff Jamar. Sage walks past rows of agents all huddled over computer monitors. They have dark rings under their eyes, and they look worn fin, just like sage. Everyone is sick of living off cold pizza and they're tired of David koresh and having to organize their lives around the whims of a madman. Sage enters to Mars office, the commander is hunched over his desk, his expression stern. He gestures for sage to sit and asks if there's been any progress in getting people out of mount Carmel. Sage size and shakes his head. Jamar leans in. He wants to know the truth. Can they get David koresh to surrender? Sage takes a moment, swallows hard. It's difficult to admit after weeks of effort, but he tells Jamar what he believes. The negotiator seemed to have exhausted their options. At this point, sage is convinced that David koresh doesn't care about anyone inside. All he sees are ways to fulfill his own grandiose vision. Sage bites his left before offering his final assessment. He's not sure what koresh will do if they don't act soon. Jamar nods, he says he's glad sage has come around on the point because the agency has a new solution in mind. It's a plan codenamed Jericho. Sage recognizes the name Jericho from the famous siege in the Bible. Jamar picks up an aerial photograph of mount Carmel. He points to the compound and explains that according to the plan, tanks will approach mount Carmel with specialized equipment, outfitted with 30 foot arms. These arms will act like pipes that can penetrate the compound. Through these pipes, the tanks will then inject tear gas going room by room. They'll release the gas over a 48 hour period. They're not looking to force the Davidians out immediately. Instead, they'll gradually shrink the living space inside the compound until the entire building is saturated with tear gas. At that point, the Davidians will have no choice but to come out. Jamar looks up from the aerial photograph. He says that once they put Jericho into action, they'll need someone to tell the Davidians about the tear gas and to help talk them out of the building. He wants sage to fill that role. Jamar also explains that the highest levels of the FBI are on board. Soon, the FBI director will help present the plan to Janet Reno. President Clinton's new attorney general. And if Reno gives the okay, the tactical team will immediately put the plan into action. But right now, Jamar wants to know if sage is on board with the plan. Sage lets his mind imagine what will surely be a frightening scene inside mount Carmel. He can picture the thundering tanks, the white clouds of tear gas filling room after room. It's a risky plan, but keeping koresh in place feels even riskier. This has to end on the FBI's terms. So Byron sage tells Jamar, he's in. It's April 14th, 1993, and now day 46 of the standoff. David thibodeau smiles as he bounds up the stairs to the second floor of mount Carmel. He feels light on his feet, his former balk has wasted away after 6 weeks of combat rations, and the hardships of the long siege have purged his last spiritual doubts. For the first time in his life, thibodeau feels like he understands what faith truly means. At the top of the stairs, thibodeau stops and grins. Here, David koresh sits up against the wall, surrounded by a large group of followers, thibodeau sees his own hope reflected on their faces. Earlier today, koresh announced that he will end the standoff once and for all. God spoke to the prophet at the end of Passover. He instructed koresh to write down his interpretation of the 7 seals. Koresh said it will take two weeks, three tops, so he called the FBI and said as soon as he finishes writing the seals, he'll surrender. There will be no change of plans. Thibodeau scans the crowd and spots his wife, Michelle. She sits with serenity, her four year old daughter, who she had with koresh. Thibodeau goes and sits down beside them and serenity crawls into his lap. He smiles at her as she settles in. Settling on koresh is a look of calm and clarity, and then he begins to speak, exalted and proud as if God is flowing through him. He begins dictating the first of the 7 seals next to him, Judy Schneider types furiously on a typewriter. She takes down every one of his words, even though for the last 6 weeks, she's had a wound in her hand where she was shot. Crash's voice rises, he says that he who has chosen to open the seals will be persecuted exactly as he and his followers have been persecuted these long weeks..

"Leaves to Mars office, it's nearly midnight. Time to head back to the hotel and catch a few hours arrest. But when he arrives at his hotel room, he immediately picks up the TV remote. Somehow he can not resist watching the media's endless commentary on the siege, just like the rest of the country, he thinks. The TV set flickers on, and there it is, mount Carmel, lit up by stadium lights as usual. Except, now Nestor can hear high decibel screeches blaring into the compound. Nestor panic, how could they be doing this? Jamar just agreed to call it off. Nestor grabs the phone and frantically calls the command post, but the agent who answers apologizes and says Jamar already went home from the night. Nestor hangs up. He closes his eyes and clenches his jaws. The.

"In the hand during the raid, and he's eager to get her to a hospital. He finds his former wife sitting on the bed, holding a two year old girl. Judy had this blond haired girl with David koresh. When Schneider first heard that Judy was pregnant, he could have killed koresh. But since then Steiner has come to love the girl like his own daughter. He wants to make sure she gets out safely. Snyder continues to the lobby where a crowd of followers is already waiting expectantly with their packs on. Snyder takes a deep breath. It's time to get moving. He picks up a phone and calls the FBI. Schneider tells them that everyone's ready. All that is left is to get koresh into a stretcher. He knows the FBI can hear the relief in his voice, but he doesn't care. He just wants this ordeal to end. Schneider hurries back up to the hallway, koresh sits there alone, his eyes glazed over with pain. Schneider speaks gently. David, everything's ready downstairs. The guys will come up with a stretcher and load you on. Don't bother with his stretcher. Come on, David. You need a stretcher. You can't walk out here in your condition. Koresh pauses and with a faraway look, he strokes his own face. Steve, we're not going anywhere. Call it off. Schneider steps back, stunned. What? No, no, everyone's ready to go. The FBI is waiting. God spoke to me, Steve. He told me to wait. Schneider feels his legs and arms go weak. He starts a shake. But David, we made a deal. You said so on tape, if you're a sermon was broadcast, will surrender. If we back out now, the world would think we're liars. You've always had such limited vision. Who cares what a bunch of non believers thinks. This is God's will. We're staying here. But David, what do you think the FBI is going to do now? We can send out a few more kids later tonight. That'll buy us some time until God tells me the next step. Schneider wants to say more, wants to argue and shake some sense into David koresh. But he stops himself. He then turns from karash and walks slowly down the stairs. The people gathered in the lobby look up, and right away, they can see that something's wrong. Snyder breaks the news and sees the shock and fear ripple through the congregation. He can't help but feel responsible. After all, he personally recruited a number of these people. He invited them to share in a heavenly Salvation, but if David is truly delivering God's word, the lord has instead condemned them to a terrible fate. American scandal is sponsored by peloton.

It's march 2nd, 1993, and day three of the standoff at mount Carmel. In the FBI command post, Gary nesse nurse surveys his team. They look tense and nervous. For hours, they've been huddled together, waiting for the Branch Davidians to march out of mount Carmel. The chosen hour has come and gone and still the Davidians remain inside the compound. Nasser squints at a video monitor, still no sign of movement. Suddenly, the radio crackles, it's a member of their tactical team, the elite agents trained in hostage rescue and battlefield tactics. He's demanding an update. Tells the agent that they've been trying unsuccessfully to get Steve Schneider on the phone. They're calling again now. Messner gives a thumbs up to a negotiator who rings the compound. Snyder's voice finally comes over to the line. He sounds nervous and apologetic. No one is coming out, he says, the lord spoke to koresh and told him to wait. The deal was off. Nestor wants a scream, but he fights to contain his anger. He needs to try and salvage the deal. He scribbles a quick note to the negotiator, telling him to remind Schneider that the FBI held up their end of the bargain. The negotiator then tries to get David koresh on the phone. Schneider says that koresh is busy praying and hangs up. Nestor feels his frustration slide into panic. His team did everything right, but he knows they'll be blamed now the koresh is backed out. He has to move quickly and contain the fallout. Nestor stands, telling his deflated team to radio the tactical team, the surrender is officially off. He hurries out of the room and races through the command post looking for Jeff Jamar, the special agent in charge. When he reaches to Mars office, he encounters another man. Dick Rogers, the head of the tactical team, both men looked furious. Nestor relays Snyder's message. It's a huge disappointment he concedes, but this setback shouldn't change the goal of ending the standoff peacefully. At that Rogers jumps, he accuses koresh of deliberately toying with the FBI. He's furious and wants to move tanks onto the property as a show of force. Jamar nods in agreement. All day, he says he's been glowing to the media about the surrender deal. Now he has to walk it back at the press briefing. The FBI brass will be furious, even president Clinton will have to answer questions about this screw up. Messner tries to calm them. He reminds them that his team was able to get a few more children out this morning, plus two older women. That victory can not be discounted, even without a mass surrender, a trickle of exits could become a flow, and then a gush. They need patience, not aggression. Rogers flushes, looking even angrier than before. He says he's having none of it. They should stop oddly. His.

"It's spring 1963 and in Pennsylvania Hershey's chief lawyer steps into the office of CEO Samuel hinkle. Boss, I've just gotten a tip. The Reese candy companies looking to sell to British American tobacco. Hinkle shock, and he should be. Hershey and Reese go way back. Harry Reese worked for Hershey before founding his company in 1923. Reese's Peanut Butter cups factory is just a few blocks away, and it uses Hershey chocolate. Hershey even helped re survive the depression in World War II. What? Why haven't they come to us? We should be first on their list if they want to sell. No matter get me a meeting with them right away. The next day, hinkle meets Reese's manager George maclise at the offices of a law firm. George, word is Reese's up for sale. Mclees nods. It is. The Reese's family feels the business has gotten too big for them to handle, so they're looking for a buyer. You interested? Hinkle most definitely is. Reese's only product Reese's Peanut Butter cups are almost unknown outside the mid Atlantic states, but he thinks they've got untapped potential. They're already outselling Hershey's almond bars in some parts of Pennsylvania. And who knows how much better Reese's Peanut Butter cups could do, if they were so coast to coast. There's another reason too. Thanks to Mars, chocolate coated candies like Snickers and Milky Way are the fastest growing segment in the candy business. Buying Reese would get Hershey into that category and allow it to challenge Mars head on. Hinkle clasps his hands together. I am interested very interested. I also think you'll be better off with us than with British American tobacco. I mean, we've got similar values. We already worked together and you already use our chocolate. So tell me, what's it going to take to get the family to sell to us? Maclise leans back into his chair. I hear you, but what the family wants is a good price. That's the bottom line. What's your offer? $23 million. Mclee smiles. That's more than the races expected. That's a fair offer. Let me talk to the family. The family says yes. For hinkle, buying Reese is a relief. Hershey hasn't created a breakout candy since the war. But now, it's got a product that can help it counter rivals like Mars and M and M's. But hinkle's not the only man making deals. It's 1964 and Forrest Mars is visiting his half sister Patricia at her large home in la Jolla, California. They may share the same father, but they couldn't be more different. While Forrest is all business, Patricia prefers spending the big dividend she gets from her stake in Mars. Or at least she did. Until she got brain cancer. Now, she just wants to secure her children's future before she dies. Patricia knows Forrest hasn't come to see her out of concern. She knows him better than that. He's been after her 41% stake in Mars ever since he returned to the U.S. in 1940. Let me guess. You want my stock. Yes, but listen. Mars is in trouble. Sales have dropped from 50 to 41 million in four years. The company's cutting back on quality. And that's the fastest way to kill a business. You've seen a Snickers recently. It's a joke. The chocolate's so thin, I can see through it. Our father made the best damn candy bars in the business. And they're ruining them. If this continues, Mars will go bust. Patricia knows forests right. She also knows that for all his flaws, he's the company's best hope. Okay, I'll give you my shares. But on three conditions, one, you keep the Mars name. I want our family name to endure. Two, I get non voting stock that pays a guaranteed income so my children can inherit it. Finally, my husband stays CEO. Agreed. Patricia, thank you. Thank you. It's December, 1964, and in Chicago, Mars top executives are waiting nervously in the boardroom. Just minutes ago, they learned that Forrest is now the company's sole owner, and that he's just fired Patricia's husband. And now he wants to see them. The 60 year old forest bursts in wispy gray hair flapping. He heads to the front of the room in turns to the team. You know, I'm a religious man. The executives are puzzled. They never thought of forest having any God other than the almighty dollar. Suddenly, Forrest drops to his knees and clasps his hands together in prayer. Oh, lord. I pray, I pray for Milky Way. I pray for Snickers. The executives stare open mouthed at the bizarre sight. And I pray for three musketeers. Ah, man. Forrest rises to his feet. The executives look at each other. Unsure how to respond. They don't have to think long. These products will now consume your lives. Your every waking moment will be dedicated to them. They are the products consumers buy. They are the products that make the profits and profit is our sole objective. Now, that sounds more like forest altar. In the weeks it follow, a tornado of change, sweeps through Mars. Office walls are knocked down, expensive carpets torn up, and oak paneled walls stripped. The company's art collection and corporate helicopter are sold. Managers who once had private offices find themselves on open plan floors surrounded by their reports. Memos are banned so that all communication is done face to face or by phone, employees are prohibited from having personal items on their desks. Salaries are increased 30% and linked to team performance. A generous bonus scheme is introduced and 12 hour days become the norm. Snickers, Milky Way and three musketeers. Are restored to their original sizes. And to ensure quality, every factory worker is empowered.

Then you know it was probably about six years ago. It started to happen where everything just happened over the phone And we were driving vehicles into people's driveways and having them signed documents on their kitchen tables. So that's shifted a sense cova because we can't do the kitchen table thing anymore but men most of our banks went to electric signatures and Certainly this year with by its smart.
