3:01 pm
democratic leaders. chuck schumer and nancy pelosi calling it a brazen violation of his oath. we want to welcome our viewers from around the world. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." we're following multiple breaking stories tonight including a school shooting near denver that's left seven people injured. police there have just announced they have two suspects in custody. also breaking, secretary of state mike pompeo making an unannounced trip to iraq to discuss growing tensions with iran. cnn has learned that intelligence shows iran moving short range ballistic missiles by boat and sources say that's among the reasons u.s. warships are heading toward the region right now amid fear of a possible strike on u.s. forces in the area. there's more breaking news. a meeting of democrats on the
3:02 pm
house sje judiciary as mcgahn joining barr in defiance. our correspondents and analysts are standing by with full details. let's get the latest, first of all, on the school shooting near denver. it's happened again. nick watt is joining us. what are you learning? >> we have just learned that the lockdown in that school district has now been lifted. two suspects in custody. swat teams were going room by room through that school to make sure that there was not a third shooter. on those suspects we hear from the local sheriff that she believes they are juveniles but no more information on them. so far no indication whether they were students at this
3:03 pm
school. we're told the shooting, they believe began in the middle school and there was luckily a sheriff substation just a block away. officers were on the scene very, very quickly. they report shots were still being fired as they entered the building. they also reported some kind of struggle going on between the suspects and people from the school. we're waiting to get more details on that itself. as you mentioned, wolf, seven or possibly eight people injured right now. this is a large school. 1850 students k through 12. we have spoken to local hospitals. one hospital where five people are being treated. we are told that one of those people is in fair condition and four others are in serious condition. no word yet on the ages of those victims. as you mentioned, this is just seven or eight miles from columbine and that shooting just over 20 years ago where two
3:04 pm
students killed 13 people and so man many lessons learned from that to try to keep as many people safe. >> we'll stay in close touch with you. you get new development, let us know. thank you very much. another breaking story we're following. the secretary of state mike pompeo surprise unannounced trip to iraq. barbara starr and kylie atwood are working on the story. barbara, what are you picking up? >> mike pompeo at this hour back in the air making his way to london after meeting with iraqi officials today. he told president trump last night that he was going to change his plans and leave germany today and make this unannounced trip to iraq because of rising tensions with iran in the region and what the u.s. says is a rising iranian threat.
3:05 pm
he talked to the iraqis about a number of matters related to iran but from the pentagon point of view, they say u.s. officials are seen intelligence about a rising threat. the latest that iran is moving short range ballistic missiles around the region by boat. that would make them dangerous mobile platforms. it could pose a threat in the persian gulf to the red sea to the west where ships come out of the canal. it could pose threat to civilian populations. this has the u.s. concerned. not to say that there isn't plenty of skepticism out there about the intelligence. there are long memories in the region about 2003 when the u.s. incorrectly claimed that iraq had weapons of mass destruction and went to war over it. there are plenty of skeptics about the intelligence and septics about the hawkish attitude that the trump
3:06 pm
administration had to iran and questions about the intelligence right now. u.s. officials tell us it's a very serious matter that they believe iran is moving this kind of weaponary around. >> pompeo cancelled a visit with the chancellor of germany to make this unannounced visit. what are you learning about the discussion that took place in iraq with the iraqi leadership while the secretary of state was there. >> secretary pompeo called president trump last night and they agreed that on this trip it would be important to position iraq so it's relationship with the u.s. remains strong. obviously, iraq is one of those kun tricountries that faces the escalating threats that the u.s. has been pointing out coming from iran. pompeo wanted to discuss that. he was on the ground for just over four hours. he met with the prime minister. he met with the president and official that i talked to from
3:07 pm
iraq ahead of this trip was hoping that this would be a opportunity for the u.s. and iraq to kind of recalibrate where they were in their relationship and share some information with one another. what we don't know is if there was an actual specific intelligence information that pompeo shared with his iraqi counter parts when asked by reporters traveling with him to baghdad if there was a tipping point, he said there wasn't. it was more about the escalating threats from iran. we're waiting to learn more about what his conversations looked like and what he shared with the iraqis. >> thanks to both of you. this story is continuing to develop. mpb there's another story that's breaking. democrats on the house judiciary committee planning to move forward with a vote on the
3:08 pm
contempt charge against the attorney general william barr now don mcgahn is joining him in ignoring the committee's subpoena. the trump administration is defying house democrats on multiple fronts. >> reporter: they are. this is just another step of that. this time at the center is don mcgahn. man who is critical to robert mueller's report and whose name was mentioned over 150 times. now he's ignoring a request at the instruction of the white house to turn over documents to house democrats. the white house is not yet asserting executive privilege but they want democrats on capitol hill who are trying to conduct oversight know they feel they have the ability to do so when it comes to mcgahn. tonight the white house is stopping don mcgahn from turning over documents to house democrats. the latest jab in the oversight showdown with the administration. in a letter current white house
3:09 pm
letter telling the house judiciary committee that the former white house counsel will be ignoring their subpoena. arguing that president trump may want to assert executive privilege in the future and mcgahn does not have the legal right to disclose these documents to third parties. house investigators subpoenaed the documents as part of their investigation into obstruction of justice. we're hoping to make mcgahn their star witness. >> harassment, embarrassment and eating tried chicken like fools is not part of it. >> we had two years for mueller to take a look at this. he filed a report. it's on the internet. everybody can see it. it's over. >> reporter: the gap between them and democrats is wide. with democrats still trying to gain access to the full unredacted mueller report.
3:10 pm
today staff from the house judiciary committee met with justice department officials to try to reach an agreement on the matter. the committee is preparing to hold attorney general bill barr in contempt of congress if he doesn't turn it over. democrats had a blistering response to mcconnecconnell's c that the case is closed. >> our leader says let's move on. it's like richard nixon saying let's move on at the height of the investigation of his wrong doing. >> reporter: house speaker nancy pelosi said trump is basicing his own case for obstruction of justice. >> trump is goading us to impeach him. that's what he's doing. every single day he's like taunting taunting. he knows that it would be very divisive in the country but he doesn't really care. just wants to solidify his base. >> i'm honored to be here today. >> reporter: today the fbi director breaking with the attorney general. >> yes, i think spying did occur. >> reporter: telling lawmakers
3:11 pm
he doesn't agree with bill barr's use of the word spying. >> that's not the term i would use. there are lots of people have different phrases. i believe the fbi is engaged in investigative activity and part of that includes surveillance activity of different shapes and sizes and the key question is making sure it's done by the book. >> reporter: barr said last month the trump campaign was spied on during the fbi's investigation and to potential collusion with russia. an assertion wrey said he couldn't back up today. >> at this time, do you have any evidence that any illegal surveillance into the campaigns or individuals associated with the campaigns by the fbi occurred? >> i don't think i personally have any evidence of that. >> reporter: as far as mcgahn goes, the democrats could still choose to initiate a contempt
3:12 pm
proceedings to hold him in contempt but whether or not they will do that still remains unclear. >> over at the white house, thanks very much. let's get some more on all of this. michael bennett of colorado joining us. he's a democratic presidential candidate. thanks so much for joining us. i know you've been following this latest school shooting in your home state of colorado and highlands ranch. our hearts go out to the community there. every one affected. you also have a lot of experience as the former superintendent. first of all, i know you're monitoring this. what can you tell us on the very latest? >> reporter: i think that you have the same information we do which is that so far we know there are eight people wounded to varying degrees and they have two suspects in custody. it's a k-12 stem school in highlands ranch, colorado which
3:13 pm
is in douglas county south of denver. the school district that i used to be superintendent of and as we are talking, my understanding is that parents are still waiting to be reunited with their children. obviously, this is a very terrible situation for all of them. >> it's an awful situation. it's awful every time we hear about a school shooting. do law enforcement agencies, where you are, not right now but in colorado, have the resources they need to respond. unfortunately, it's happening all too often. >> it's not just a matter of law enforcement. we got to have the resources in our school to prevent this kind of thing from happening to begin with. i don't want to really talk about policy today but i will say that i talk to my daughter on the way over here tonight, she's 14 years old and at home. she said i heard it was two
3:14 pm
kids. i said i think the number is eight. she said, i thought it was a small shooting. now it's a big one. our kids are having to worry about this when they go to school and that, every day when something like this happens. it's not right. they shouldn't have to do that. i just hope that the parents are there to find their children, find their children and reunited and law enforcement and others need to be first he respondsers here including the doctors and nurses get the support they need from our community which i know they will. unfortunately, what you know in colorado like so many other places around the country we have faced more than our share of this columbine was now 20 years ago when 12 children were killed and one teacher was shot and then we had the aurora movie theater shooting. it wasn't that long ago either.
3:15 pm
it's obviously a terrible day for everybody. >> i've spoken to so many parents who are also upset that it's almost become a regular routine matter that these young little kids in elementary schools and middle schools and high schools they now on a regular basis have to have these so called shooting drills to practice, god forbid, if something were to happen at their schools. the kids come home and say we had to do x, y and z. how does a community deal on a regular basis especially in colorado where you're from? >> yeah. that's it. the kids, every time one of these things happen, we sit in my living room. we have a conversation with our daughters about this. they do drill for it, regularly. you can see in the photos of the school today that there are kids who know how to line up.
3:16 pm
it's somebody happens. tonight is not the night to talk about what to do about it. it's saddening that children have to endure this in our country. other generations of american children haven't had to endure it. this is a burdens we have placed uniquely on the next generation of americans. it's deeply unfair. >> it certainly is. it's unfortunate sign of the times that these little kids have to go through a drill like that and come home and tell their moms and dads. they practicing in case a killer, a shooter comes into the school. it's a sad commentary. i know you have a lot going on. we're grateful to you joining us. we'll have a substantive policy discussion on many issues down the road. >> i appreciate your having me. thank you very much. >> senator michael bennett of

we're following multiple breaking stories. democrats meeting tonight as former white house counsel don mcgahn joins the attorney general william barr in defying a subpoena from the panel. our senior congressional correspondent is on the scene for us.
3:22 pm
democrats on the judiciary committee are discussing their next steps. what are you learning? >> reporter: that's right. the committee staff and the justice department have been engaged in discussions for much of today about trying to head off a vote to hold the attorney general in contempt tomorrow. this comes as democrats have demanded the full mueller report and the underlying evidence to be turned over by capitol hill. the justice department has defied a subpoena saying that's not legitimate oversight question n question. jerry nadler made it clear the committee still plans to hold a vote to hold the attorney general in contempt. >> will you hold the vote tomorrow? >> it's still scheduled. >> reporter: he wouldn't discuss other next steps including holding don mcgahn in contempt. we do expect the committee to release a statement tonight in the aftermath of the white house instructing mcgahn not to turn over records to the committee
3:23 pm
citing potential breach of confidential discussions. democrats have rejected any effort to try to injoke executive privilege. they still want don mcgahn to appear in public. they have a subpoena that says by may 21st he's to appear. uncertain whether or not he will do that and whether or not the white house will take steps to block that. democrats on multiple fronts battling the white house and do plan to hold the attorney general in contempt at the moment unless last minute deal can be reached. >> all right. thank you very much. mpblt we're followi seven people, maybe eight are injured after a school shooting near denver. we're awaiting a news conference by authorities. we'll take a quick break. we'll be right back. >> tech: you think this chip is nothing to worry about?

3:29 pm
not going where they need to go between house democrats on the sjudiciary committee up to and including chairman nadler. i think democrats are well within their legal rights to proceed to contempt at this point. attorney general barr has held them in contempt in the formal legal sense of completely waiving them away and brushing them off. what i wonder is whether democrats have played this right our smartly politically. they could have had the attorney general in front of their committee last week if they had not insisted on having their staff counsel interview him instead of members interviewing him. they could have gone with the way that attorney general barr wanted to do it and wrangled later about getting the full unredacted report. i suspect we're headed to court and i wonder when we'll see attorney general barr before the committee. >> this could drag on and on. jerry nadler met with democrats on the panel after the meeting
3:30 pm
between committee staffers and department of justice officials. it ended without a resolution today. are house democrats any closer to seeing the full, unredacted mueller report and the underlying evidence, they want that as well in. >> the fact they are moving forward with this vote suggests this is going to drag on and on and on. you can see as david referred to, the political gamesmanship that is at work on both sides. democrats while they are highlighting just how obstructive they believe the administration and the doj, specifically, are being, republicans are saying this is over. mitch mcconnell said case is closed as concerns the mueller report. republicans are trying to portray democrats now as over stepping. as being irrational, rash. the longer this drags on, the more republicans will potentially be able to make that case. there's a risk for democrats in
3:31 pm
making this a fight. >> all this kocomes as they are telling don mcgahn not to cooperate with congress. what is the administration so afraid mcgahn may reveal give dn fa -- given the fact he spent 30 hours with mueller investigators and we read all the explosive information he provided in the mueller report. >> we read it but he hasn't said it. a lot of people haven't read 450 pie pages. i expect he will be clear minded and talk into millions of living rooms. question one, did the president ask you to fire robert mueller? yes or no. let's say he says yes as the report talks about. mr. mcgahn, did you interpret
3:32 pm
that as an effort by the white house to obstruct or impede the investigation? if he answers yes to that, the democrats look around, nancy pelosi and others say we're looking for facts that determine whether we had to pursue obstruction because mueller didn't. the white house counsel got an order that he thought was obstruction. i think this has tremendous potential to embarrass the white house and beyond that. >> does nadler's threat have real legal consequences? >> it has legal consequences because contempt is a legal judgment rerndered by congress but it doesn't have practical consequences. it's not going to result in barr being disbarred, going to jail. he'll get a pat on the back from the president of the united states who is advising him to defy congress in every respect. what democrats are learning is
3:33 pm
the limitations of their power because even if they are right legally, and i think they are mostly right legally, the long journey through the courts that hasn't even begun yet on all of these document requests and testimony requests have the ability to diffuse my of these investigations and that's the purpose of the objections by trump administration. >> let e's get to other breakin story. what do you think is behind mike pom pay you pompeos trip to iraq? >> this is the intelligence we have and this is why we're concerned. the second answer is more significant. the iraqis including the individual that mike pom ppeo he incredibly tight relations with the russians. he will explain the seriousness
3:34 pm
of which we take threats and he will ask the iraqis to talk to their friends next door. the americans are onto you and their serious. >> relations with neighboring iranians as well. >> you look at not only the iraqi military which has had some engagement with iranian militias. the president of iraq has talked to iran for years havieven duri the time saddam was there. the president of iraq can pick up the phone to iran and say be careful. everyone stand by. there's more news including bernie sanders policy position. where they are rooted. we have new information. stick around. imagined your drear as something fast. then one day you decide it just needs to be safe enough to get her to college and back. principal. we can help you plan for that.

certainly one of the top contenders for the democratic presidential nomination and many of bernie sanders positions set him apart from the pack. have they changed in the more than four decades sanders has been involved in politics? ryan, sanders is registered as an independent but caucuses with the democrats in the senate and he call himself a democratic socialist. >> yeah. that's right. our team is exhaustively poured
3:40 pm
over hundreds of records from his past. we discovered the bernie sanders of the 1970s isn't all that different from the bernie sanders of today. >> thank you, madison. >> reporter: bernie sanders, one of the leading con terndtenders the democratic nomination. >> there is nothing that we cannot accomplish. >> reporter: preaching a message from similar to his 2016 run. >> people cannot afford the medicine they need. >> they cannot afford the medicine they need. >> start paying their fair share of taxes. >> start paying their fair share of taxes. >> reporter: one that's not all that different from his political posture more than four decades ago as an unknown activist in vermont. >> my name is bernard sanders. we're going to be looking at po poverty in vermont. >> reporter: he drew come
3:41 pm
criticism after tax returns revealed his own income topped a million dollars largely due to two best selling books. >> if anyone thinks that i should apologize for writing a best selling book, i'm sorry. i'm sorry not going to do it. >> reporter: according to a cnn k file investigation, in his early years, he felt differently. nobody should earn more than a million dollars, sanders said in a 1974 article. that's the equivalent of a little more than $5 million today. anything above $1 million dollar, he believed, should be 100% taxed. he said it should be illegal to amass more wealth than a human family could use in a lifetime and that members of the senate should earn the median income of their constituents. that philosophy on wealth disparity became the bedrock of his platform. >> the economic misery
3:42 pm
unnecessary in my view. >> reporter: he was by accident. he avoided the vietnam draft. by time his application was denied, he was too old to be drafted. he was working an a carpenter in vermont when he attended a meeting of a small left wing group called the liberty union party. he emerged as their candidate for u.s. senate. >> we're in the meeting and we have done all our business and here we don't have anybody for the u.s. senate. i turn over and i see this bushy haired guy and i'm saying hey, you. you want to run for this seat. we need some fresh meat to sacrifice on the alter of the ballot. >> i don't think he had any ul lu illusions about winning. he surprised me and surprised himself by volunteering to run for the senate. that was the beginning of his
3:43 pm
electoral career. >> reporter: that campaign included some of sanders most extreme ideas including legalizing all drugs, including heroin and even legalizing hitchhiking which he often did to get from event to event. doris lake campaigned with sanders in 1972. >> bernie was the one who told me this is what candidates do. they go in and shake hands and say to the workers, vote for me and i'll take care of you. >> reporter: sanders lost that election earning 2% of the vote but he continued to sharpen his rhetoric against big corporations and the wealthy. in 1976, he ran for governor of vermont. >> i think it's clear to anyone who follows that both of these people are concerned about interest of the two 2 or 3% of the population who own the state of vermont and not the other 97% of the people who work for living. >> bernie has not deviated.
3:44 pm
>> hundreds of hundreds of billions of dollars. >> the joke is now you turn on the tele, he starts and we finish the speech. >> reporter: he lost that race and every other he entered in the 1970s opinion sanders was socially progressive. it called for abolishing all laws related to abortion, birth control and homosexual relationships. punishing business sz wes who l the state without compensating workers. his first major victory came in 1981 when he was elected mayor by tep von votes.
3:45 pm
>> i have run for office in state of vermont on many occasions. sometimes i've lost. more often i've won. what all of that showed is those ideas were not radical ideas. they were common sense american ideas that the american people supported. >> while much of what sanders advocated for early on in his career remains the same today, there are some of the more radical positions he's changed on. a campaign spokesperson confirming that sanders believes that compulsory education is a good idea. he no longer believes we should lower the voting age to 14. he no longer supports legaling all drugs including heroin. the breaking news continues.
