"the news with shepard smith." good evening you can deny, but the recordings do not lie kevin mccarthy blaming president trump for the deadly capitol riot the latest leaked tapes are from days after the attack on january
11th he admitted he bore some responsibility. >> let me be very clear to all of you, and i am very clear to the president. he bears responsibilities for his words and actions, no ifs, ands or buts i asked him today does he hold responsibility for what happened does he feel bad for what happened he told me he does have some responsibility for what happened and he needed to acknowledge that >> of course, former president trump has never apologized or accepted any responsibility. leader mccarthy voted against his impeachment. still, these leaked recordings could threaten leader mccarthy's chances of being speaker of the house. sh shamari stone with the fallout and reaction. >> kevin mccarthy's private views public showing his short-lived anger at president trump's role in the january 6th insurrection.
>> i know this is not fun. i know this is not great i know this is very tough, but what i want to do, especially through here is, i don't want to rush things. i want everybody to have all the information needed i've had it with this guy. what he did is unacceptable. nobody can defend that and nobody should defend it. >> the new audio comes a day after mccarthy denied a "new york times" report that he planned to urge mr. trump to resign he called the report, quote, totally false and wrong. but audio released thursday night contradicts his denial in a call on january 10th, 2021, mccarthy told congresswoman liz cheney. >> again, the only discussion i would have with him is that i think this will pass, and it would be my recommendation you should resign. i mean, that would be my take, but i don't think he would take it but i don't know. >> nbc news reports that
mccarthy called mr. trump last night to apologize and say he was paying cheney blitzers mr. trump wasn't upset and the washington post reports he was glad he didn't recommend he resign his grip on the republican party is strong. >> a sign, this is a maga party now. >> president biden reacting to the recordings. >> the people who know better are afraid to act correctly because they know they'll be primaried. >> reporter: spokespersons for liz cheney and steve scalise deny leaking the video another person close to trump says unless something else drops, trump will not likely ditch mccarthy for another member to be speaker carl >> shomari, thanks. russia is revealing a much larger and bicker goal for the
invasion of ukraine. they want to gain control of southern ukraine and eastern ukraine all the way to maldova he had been scaling back and refocusing on the east ukraine's defense ministry is calling this new plan imperialism. moscow is admitting this was a land grab all the way along instead of a war against mythic call nazis another mass grave has been discovered in a nearby village satellite images appear to show the excavation this comes after putin declared victory in the besieged city we're reporting in the city of western ukraine. you have reaction from president zelenskyy tonight. >> reporter: good evening, carl. in his nightly video address president zelenskyy saying the plans to get to maldova are the
same as day one. this is about russia trying to expand its territorial boundaries by crushing the sovereignty of other countries and now maldova seems to be in their sights the russian defense ministry tonight laying out its plans about their second phase in the war, to take the donbas area to create a land bridge between crimea and donbas and then t take control of southern ukraine creating another corridor to transinistra and maldova which has russian separatists in it and is sympathetic in part to russia if they did get there, carl, that's a very vulnerable country. it has no 23functioning army to speak of in order for them to get there, they have to break through odessa, which the ukrainians have heavily fortified
the russians have shown time and time again that they have no compunction about destroying entire cities to gain battlefield momentum and achieve their objectives they don't seem to be very optimistic about holding peace talks either sergei lavrov saying today that peace talks had hit a rock bottom blaming ukraine again for russia's -- for russia not being interested in talking to this country and the head of the u.n. is heading to meet vladimir putin on tuesday for a face-to-face talk but expectations of any sort of tangible breakthrough in those talks are also extremely low carl. >> ali arouzi in ukraine, thanks ian, always great to have you. thanks for your time the russians are trying to connect the donbas region to crimea do they have what they need to prevent that >> they have enough that they're
defending themselves pretty well, but i think if you're making a bet right now, you would say not by may 9th, not by victory day, but in the course of the next one to two months the russians are likely to be able to take almost all, maybe all of the donbas, which is about 2/3 more in the territor in southeast ukraine than they occupied before february 24th. once they do that, the russian troops will be spent the morale will be very low. the ukrainians will have the capacity to attack back. i don't think we should -- even if the russians are able to accomplish the main goal of this so-called second phase of military operations, i don't think anyone believes that the war ends there. >> for 56 days, ian, we've talked about what would be a game changer for nato. is the addition of maldova as a potential target one >> no.
i want to make it clear i don't think the russian general actually said that the statement that was made was they wanted to have greater access greater access doesn't mean island bridge. he did not make a specific discussion of territorial acquisition or of a land bridge, which is what they are talking about and what they do hold presently between crimea and donbas now president zelenskyy, of course, then said, well, this means they want to take maldova. this means they want a war to another country. of course, he's going to say that he's winning the information war and his country has been forcibly invaded for no reason other than putin's territorial ambitions. i get it and everyone's covering it, but it would be irresponsible to believe at this point. they don't remotely have the military capabilities for it right now and they're not positioned for it at all.
>> the u.n., ian, said there's growing evidence of war crimes from the troops. does the west look weak the longer they take to respond to that >> i think the west is responding to it when the united states president says war crimes are being committed and there are acts of genocide that putin is responsible for, that makes it very clear that the relationship between nato and russia is broken permanently, and that's why. you have half of russia's central bank assets frozen it's permanent they're not going to be unfrozen that's why you have almost every western multi-national corporation pulling out of russia they're not going back as long as putin is in charge of the country. a lot of things the west might look weak at putin is the one that's holding onto the desk and talking to his defense minister and clearly is failing in every one of the
goals that he has had from this country with this invasion he hasn't gotten rid of zelenskyy and they're well armed and they hate them you have finland and sweden going to join nato >> ian, as always we're grateful. >> good to see you. coverage of the war continues later this hour. dozens of people fleeing ukraine hoping to enter the u.s. what happens when they arrive? extremely dangerous, critical conditions, words that meteorologists say they don't use often but for today they say the warning is necessary. has inflation peaked or are we still in for a ride treasury secretary janet yellen weighs in.
dry weather and strong winds are leading to an extreme wildfire threat fires are already blazing across the southwest and now weather conditions are only going to make things worse. the tunnel fire exploding to more than 20,000 acres right now the fire is just 3% contained. arizona governor warning residents to stay vigilant >> this is the earliest and most intense start to fire season that we've had yesterday the fire was on offense. today our wild land firefighters are on offense. >> the fire threat in colorado was the highest it's been in ten years. grass fires already cropping up in the state this is in lamar, 3 miles east of colorado springs. national weather service telling residents to prepare a go bag in case they have to go michelle grossman is tracking it. >> we are looking at an extremely high risk.
we're talking about this in early fall and it's april and we're talking about the wildfires. let's take a look at what's happening right now and what we can expect for this weekend. there's some sort of fire danger alert and that includes 12 million people where you see the orange, that is your fire weather watch where you see pink, that's a red flag warning that's the highest level of warning. really saying even a small spark could start a large wildfire we have warm, dry, very windy conditions we're going to see winds gusting in some spots up to 75 miles per hour that's going to fuel the fire and fan the fires and make it really difficult to put out any fires that are existing. this is the threat for the rest of the day that is an extreme risk. that is the highest risk we see for denver, lamar, down to albuquerque. through new mexico, low hu
humidity that extends from the plains to the southwest. tomorrow does not let up we'll see very strong winds and low humidity for that we'll see a critical risk again where you see the red, that's in eastern new mexicointo western texas. the panhandle of texas once again we need to be on wind alert. the nation is under some sort of wind alert where you see the purple, that's the high wind alert. stretching all the way to the central and southern plains al the way to the southwest we have wind watches current wind speeds up to 40 miles per hour and 47 miles per hour in lubbock. we're seeing winds gusting higher than that adding onto it, really not a bad dew point. very dry conditions. >> michelle grossman, thanks for that. mask rules across the country have gotten pretty
confusing but in philadelphia it is a whole different level on april 11th the city said it would reinstate a federal mask mandate. now there's four days later and officials say the requirement isn't necessary anymore. the city's health conditioner, there is a covid jacket and the mandate worked. >> it is a short span of time. that's the time we needed to see what was going to happen next. didn't want to miss the chance to interrupt a serious wave. it looks like what happened was that announcement was enough to head off a wave. restaurant groups complained about enforcing it many people disregarded the requirement altogether
very few people at the sixers game wearing masks. >> there's lots of different pressures and direction. i'm trying to follow the data. i said when we announced the mask mandate, if we didn't see the case numbers rise, we would need to change and rethink our old tricks and that's what we're doing here >> they asked about whether the reversal hurts the department's credibility. she refused to answer and she said she's proud she rejected any notion that the guidance is confusing. >> take the stand. the question she did the best to ge
in power after the election. a group of georgia voters are trying to disqualify her she repeatedly deflected questions about her involvement in the insurrection. >> did anyone ever mention to you the possibility that there might be violence in washington on january 6th, 2021 >> i don't remember. >> my question is just about whether anybody at all ever mentioned the possibility of violence >> i don't remember. >> you're not denying it, you're just saying you don't recall >> i don't recall. >> what happens next, attorneys on both sides are expected to release briefs by next thursday. the judge will make his recommendation a week after that regardless of what happens, congresswoman greene could end up on the primary ballot. congress back in session from a recess next week. one of the top items, a bill to
make more semiconductors here in america. most of them are now made in asia 30 years ago the u.s. accounted for 37% of the global semiconductor production according to the biden administration today it's just 12%. now chip makers pushing lawmakers to bring manufacturing back to america. in albany, new york, tonight, here's ylan muoy >> this is one of the most advanced semiconductor labs in the world. this is where engineers from companies like ibm, samsung and applied materials test and develop the tiny chips at the heart of modern technology >> why are semiconductors so important? >> so semiconductors have become part of our everyday life and everything we do, right? whether it's driving to work in our cars, using our cell phones, which everyone does all the time. >> reporter: there's a good chance the chip inside the device you're watching right now
was designed inside this lab 5 to 7 years ago the chips these massive machines are working on today will power the next generation of technology. >> this technology is several years from being manufactured and put in a lot of our items that we use home this is in preparation for what's to come. >> reporter: i'm holding the future right now >> you are holding the future. >> reporter: while the research is happening here, the majority of the manufacturing is happening overseas america is losing a critical competitive advantage. >> i think the u.s. could directly take credit for inventing the semiconductor industry back in the '50s and '60s and the fact that we lack manufacturing and we lack the leading edge nodes here is to me horrifying. >> reporter: that's why more than 50 companies and research
universities are joining forces to ask washington for help they're pushing for billions of dollars of federal incentives to build semiconductor fabrication facilities in america. this is lobbying to become a hub. it could mean more funding and a growing economy. >> this is another moon shot for us we want to take back the position we've had in the world in the semiconductor industry and we're going to do it with t this. >> reporter: now the reason you have to wear the special suits and why the lighting is yellow is because all of this equipment is so sensitive and precise down to the atomic level. the smallest component is two nanometers that's smaller than human dna. this was invented by ibm right here and it's why officials say, carl, it should be manufactured here in america as well. >> ylan mui in the clean room.

language or asl and his world changed. >> i didn't know any sign from 3 until the age of 12. i started interacting with individuals who are deaf and they were asl users and, frankly, my world and my education just opened right up it felt like all of a sudden, you know, the black and white changed into full color. >> reporter: so austin and the deafengers helped snap chat and the 319 million users learn sal. we learned how this guides you through the asl alphabet. >> now i'm learning the letter h. now i. >> reporter: letting you know when you get it right. >> translator: you're doing well good job. >> when you get it wrong >> whoops, whoops. what's going on? what am i doing wrong? there. there? >> even introducing a new way to swipe. yeah >> my sned.
>> no, i'm wrong >> austin says it's a badly needed tool to help communicate with the deaf community. what is it like being a deaf person using tech today? >> translator: it certainly can be challenging you may have a friend who says, you know, let's go over and catch the show, but where's the interpreter? where is the accessibility >> reporter: snap chat's asl alphabet aims to change that >> you've got it. >> you say this is the start of that journey where are you going? >> really, there's a lot of potential. the sky's the limit. >> this is a huge step forward it makes technology more accessible and i hope this sends a message to other tech companies. there is such a rich opportunity right in front of them to incorporate american sign language in a variety of ways. >> reporter: for millions it helps them create alternate personas now it hopes to unlock a new
world between the deaf and the hearing. >> avengers, there we go good job. >> yeah. >> for the news, i'm erin mclaughlin. janet yellen says high inflation could be here to stay. she warned high inflation could be here for a while but likely won't get worse. >> well, it may peak but inflation has been high and i think the shots from this unjustified attack on ukraine won't prolong inflationary pressures. the outlook is uncertain. >> yellen said the fed is taking steps to lower inflation and she doesn't expect a recession. 18 house republicans asking twitter to keep the records to buy the company. they're all members of the house judiciary committee. it lays the groundwork for a

first, a new twist in the madeleine mccann case. today prosecutors in portugal officially identified the suspect in the investigation into the british toddler's disappearance. they haven't named the suspect but they say they're working with german authorities. madeleine mccann was 3 years old when she vanished in southern port two gall in 2007. her disappearance captured worldwide attention. it became one of the most famous missing person's cases ever. >> reporter: just a few weeks shy of what would have been madeleine mccann's 19th birthday, a suspect has been identified but been unnamed. two years ago german police announced their investigation into this man, christian
bruckner, widely identified by british and german press he's currently serving time on drug charges in a german prison to be followed by a sentence for rape of a 72-year-old woman in portugal that happened in the same town where mccann disappeared they were there on vacation when they discovered the toddler was missing from their room. they went to check on her during a male kate and jerry mccann were named suspects in their own daughter's disappearance but were later cleared. they spoke out on the tenth anniversary of the day she vanished. >> we should have been a family of five for all of that time and it doesn't feel real. >> bruckner's team declined to comment but he has not been charged in the mccann case in the past bruckner has denied any involvement. for "the news" i'm valley castro.

jacob soberoff tells us about one family it didn't take long to find a family they said they fled the war from kyiv the day it started. >> reporter: you were in kyiv and then you went to -- >> poland. from poland to germany germany to mexico to here. >> reporter: that's a long trip. >> yes >> reporter: a trip, she told me, they hoped would end soon on the other side of the border in the u.s. as they unloaded we met up with erica pinero, an immigration attorney who's worked at the border for years i've been to mexico many times, several times with you this is the first time i've ever seen a sign welcoming people in ukrainian. >> it's a very well organized
operation. >> reporter: special treatment no other group of migrants gets, she said inside we ran into pelona again. when the war started, what did you hear what did you see >> early in the morning, i think that -- nearly 5:30 a.m. my sister from odessa called me and say the war has started. >> reporter: you were scared >> yeah sure >> reporter: she said outside the window she saw a building attacked now she hopes she's done running. now it was her family's turn to leave and we went with them.
we're on our way to the border if all goes well, they might be in the u.s. within hours ready to go? >> we are a little nervous. >> reporter: you're nervous? >> yeah. but we hope that everything will be okay. >> reporter: we watched as they walked out of mexico and two hours later they emerged on the u.s. side where they were picked up by the same family friends that met them at the at this j tijuana airport. >> you made it. >> reporter: yes. >> how are you feeling >> happy >> reporter: you're going to sacramento last night we found them settling into their new if temporary home over 500 miles away i'm back it's me again. how are you guys what does it feel like here? >> it's something different. something new for us but we have
so great people here and it's easier to us because we have our friends. >> reporter: they are an extraordinary family she tells me she, her husband and her daughter received one year of humanitarian parole and they will stay in the united states if they try to go back to ukraine if and when it becomes safe others might not be as lucky for their part, central americans, mexicans, others at the border are alleging racism in this plan they have been waiting months if not years to enter the southwest border. >> jacob, thanks. today is earth day and there is no denying the planet is getting warmer in alaska the effects of climate change are clear to see. glaciers in the state melting at record rates climate scientists say this is
bad news for all of us, not just alaska chase cane went there to see firsthand what the earth has lost >> yeah, so the glacier is five miles wide at the very bottom. 25 miles long. goes up to 9200 feet >> reporter: alaska's clash cher's hold almost unreal beauty but what's very real is how quickly they're melting. >> this is all new right here. the ice broke off about two weeks ago. >> reporter: tyler and brian with alaskan helicopter tours brought us over half a dozen glaciers the evidence of climate change almost everywhere beneath us and all around as we landed aside one. >> this is one of the places where you can see the evidence of the glaciers melting. this is lake george which will melt as we get into summer down here these chunks of ice broke off of collin glacier last year and then even along the edge you can see how the ice is
already separating from colony glacier. that's going to be the part of the glacier that breaks off this summer and possibly ends up in the lake and eventually melting. >> what's less visible is the deflation of the glacier we see the margins, that's obvious, and we see it receding, retreating, that's obvious, but the thinning is less obvious and that's really where most of the loss is happening. >> reporter: brian is a climate scientist with the national oceanic and atmospheric administration one giga ton of melting ice would cover new york's central park in water and that water would be deep enough to submerge the chrysler building and then some and scientists say the world is currently losing 300 gigatons of ice a year >> indirectly or less tangibly it's increasing the instance of
wildfire, it's affecting when we can plant crops and overall agricultural productivity. you know, my kids who are teenagers, they talk about what it used to be like here. i mean, so the changes aren't occurring on natural, you know, geologic or subgeologic scales they're occurring at yearly and decadal scales. >> reporter: so alaska is the state that is warming faster than any other united states state. it's about 4.3 degrees hotter than it was just 50 years ago. that's having a profound impact on this landscape, on people here by the way, it's important to point out that what's happening in alaska affects you no matter where you live in the united states affecting weather pattern. we're getting prolonged drought and wildfires out west carl >> chase, what can we do to essentially turn back the clock if that's at all possible?
>> reporter: yeah, i mean, i think we're hearing from the united nations ipcc reports that we've got to cut our fossil fuel emissions. that is key to all of this as the planet continues to warm and alaska continues to lose glaciers and ice sheets. they act as reflector bouncing back the sun's rays. as they melt and shrink, that's exposing land and absorbing heat that's accelerating it. >> would you argue given the way in which alaska is melting faster than other parts of the u.s. or the world that awareness in alaska is greater than, say, in the continental u.s.? >> reporter: absolutely. i don't think you would find a person here in alaska who would say things aren't changing are there people who disagree about the specifics of why yeah, sure, maybe, that's something you run into we heard the climate scientist
talking about his own kids he has two teenage kids and he notices it i'm a climate scientist, i study this we should be looking at this over thousands of years, not in the lifetime of my children. >> chase, thanks so much. meantime, inflation increasing the cost of almost everything and now some people are being forced to make the tough choice between enjoying life and staying healthy. ever been to a wedding with bad food what about one with weed laced food happening to some unsuspecting guests in florida an

switch today. for the first time ever, guns are the leading cause of death for children and teens in the u.s. that's according to researchers who analyzed cdc mortality data from 2020. more than 4300 people between the ages of 1 and 19 died by gun-related injuries that year that's up nearly 30% from the
year before. according to researchers most of those deaths are homicides versus suicide guns killed roughly 400 more children and teens in 2020 than car accidents. a tennessee bill forcing drunk drivers to financially support their victims' children. the bill requires dui offenders to pay child support if they kill a parent or guardian in a crash. the court would determine a reasonable and necessary amount that the driver would have to pay in restitution the court would require the child's financial needs and standard of living they'll have one year after release from jail to continue. they'll have to continue until the child reaches 18 and finishes high school tennessee passed it earlier and governor bill lee is expected to sign it into law. everybody is paying more for food, cars, gas, even health
care current and future retirees will likely see medical expenses make up a bigger part of their budget sharon epperson spoke to some women who are worried. >> when kathy martin turned 50 she hit the gym. >> i want to be active for as many years as possible. >> what worries you about health care costs >> not being able to afford it when you have to prioritize your expenses, that's a problem >> the members are working on staying healthy but worry about the future >> what's going to happen when i get older, you know? how am i going to be able to pay for the care that i need >> reporter: premiums for medical care part b for those 65 and older increased nearly 15% this year, almost double the pace of inflation. according to one estimate, if health care costs remain this high over the next two years, a healthy 55-year-old couple retiring at 65 is facing an
additional $267,000 in medical expenses total health care costs for this same couple could exceed $1 million. that's nearly as much money as they could expect to receive in social security benefits in their lifetime. >> whether you're affluent or whether you're the average person, i'll tell you what, when you look at your social security check, you're paying for health care. >> regular exercise may keep you healthy, but overall health care costs keep going up. if you are worried about rising medical expenses, financial experts say the first thing you should do is understand what your health insurance will and won't cover. >> you really need to look at the coverage in those types of plans to determine what makes the most sense for you >> instructor melanie scala has been teaching this class over a decade. >> i'm here to help them not have medical costs i'm here to help them exercise and feel better.
>> yet staying healthy also requires planning ahead to be able to afford health care costs in the future. one of the best ways to deal with health care inflation is to start saving more money now. in retirement accounts like 401ks and iras and hsas. if you are in your 50s, you have the opportunity to put away more money in these accounts through what's called catch-up contributions. carl >> sharon epperson tonight. a florida sheriff who said we don't meth around just arrested his own daughter. kristen kent was just arrested deputies arrested her earlier this week after orchestrating a controlled buy in which she delivered two ounces of meth the sheriff told two outlets he's going to give his daughter some tough love. he says he never thought his daughter would be the one selling drugs. he wrote on facebook, when you
