THE JANUARY SIX COMMITTEE IS SET TO HOLD A NEW HEARING TODAY ON CAPITOL HILL. COMMITTEE MEMBERS MADE THE SURPRISE ANNOUNCEMENT AFTER PREVIOUSLY POSTPONING THE HEARINGS FOR SEVERAL WEEKS. THEY SAY THEY PLAN TO SHARE RECENTLY OBTAINED EVIDENCE AND SOURCES FAMILIAR WITH THE MATTER TELL ABC NEWS FORMER TOP ADVISOR IS TRUMP CHIEF OF STAFF MARK MEADOWS, CASSIDY HUTCHINSON IS SCHEDULED TO TESTIFY. CHIEF WASHINGTON CORRESPONDENT JONATHAN ACCRA HAS MORE FROM CAPITOL HILL. >> GOOD MORNING, DIANE. TODAY THE JANUARY SIX COMMITTEE WILL HEAR FROM A WHITE HOUSE ADVISER WHO WAS RIGHT THERE IN THE WEST WING ON JANUARY 6TH AND IN THE DAYS AND WEEKS LEADING UP TO THE ATTACK ON THE CAPITOL. HER NAME IS CASSIDY HUTCHINSON, HER APPEARANCE WAS FIRST REPORTED BY -- SHE WAS INNOCENT TO MARK MEADOWS, CHIEF OF STAFF. IF SHE WAS IN THE WEST WING WHILE THE ATTACK ON THE CAPITAL WAS UNFOLDING. DIRECT WITNESS TO THE EFFORTS BY THOSE CLOSEST TO DONALD TRUMP TO TRY TO GET HIM TO DO SOMETHING OR TO SAY SOMETHING TO CALL OFF HIS SUPPORTERS, TO GET THEM TO STAND DOWN. SHE HAS ALREADY TESTIFIED THREE TIMES IN CLOSED DOOR BUT TAPED POSITION BEFORE THE COMMITTEE. AND BASED ON WHAT SHE HAS TOLD THE COMMITTEE, INVESTIGATORS BELIEVE THAT SHE IS TRULY ONE OF THE KEY, ONE OF THE STAR WITNESSES OF THEIR INVESTIGATIONS. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT SHE HAS TESTIFIED ABOUT ALREADY IN CLOSED-DOOR DEPOSITION, I'M TOLD, IS THAT SHE WOULD MISSED MARK MEADOWS ACTUALLY BURNING DOCUMENTS IN THE FIREPLACE IN THE CHIEF OF STAFF OFFICE IN THE WHITE HOUSE. SO THIS SHOULD BE POTENTIALLY VERY INTERESTING, VERY COMPELLING TESTIMONY, DIANE. >> JOHN CARL, THANK YOU. LET'S GO TO ABC'S ALEX FOR SHEA FOR A LITTLE BIT MORE ON TODAY'S HEARING. ALEX, HUTCHINSON HAS, JOHN JUST MENTION, TESTIFY THAT MEADOWS BURNT DOCUMENTS IN HIS OFFICE. WHAT CAN WE EXPECT TO HEAR FROM HER TODAY AND THE LINE OF QUESTIONING PUT TO HER? >> I THINK THAT'S GOING TO BE SOMETHING THAT CERTAINLY WE'RE WATCHING FOR. IF THERE WILL BE MORE TESTIMONY ABOUT THAT PARTICULAR INSTANCE. BUT ALSO, HUTCHINSON HAD SOME PRETTY KNOWLEDGE TO WHAT WAS GOING ON IN THE TRUMP INNER WORKINGS. SOMETHING THAT WE'VE ALREADY HEARD THAT, FROM APRIL COURT FILINGS THAT SHE TOLD INVESTIGATORS IN HER FORMER BOSS MARK MEADOWS WAS AWARE OF SECURITY CONCERNS AND INDICATED POSSIBLE VIOLENCE AHEAD OF THE JANUARY 6TH RALLY. AND SOMETHING ELSE TO PAY ATTENTION TO IS THAT FILING ALSO REVEALED THAT HUTCHINSON HAD OVERHEARD MEMBERS IN THE WHITE HOUSE COUNSEL'S OFFICE SAY THE PLAN TO HAVE ALTERNATE TRUMP ELECTORS MEET AND CAST VOTES FOR TRUMP WAS NOT LEGALLY SOUND. >> ALEX, WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT THIS NEW EVIDENCE AND NEW WITNESS TESTIMONY THAT THE COMMITTEE SAYS IT HAS? >> WELL, YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT THIS IS THE ALEX HOLDER THEY'RE GONNA USE, A DOCUMENTARIAN WHO HAD ACCESS TO TRUMP AND HIS INNER CIRCLE. MONTHS OF FOOTAGE. I WANT TO CAUTION, WE DON'T KNOW IF WE'RE GOING TO SEE OR HEAR ANY OF THAT FOOTAGE TODAY. THERE ARE A COUPLE OF OTHER HEARINGS STILL SCHEDULED OUT FOR LATER ON IN JULY. BUT I CAN TELL YOU THAT LAST WEEK, COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN BENNIE THOMPSON WAS ASKED WHAT CAN WE EXPECT FROM THIS HOLDER VIDEO. AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT HAS BEEN CIRCULATED IS WHETHER OR NOT THEY'RE GOING TO BE LOOKING AT CONSISTENCIES, SPECIFICALLY WITH SOME OF THE TESTIMONY OF TRUMP'S INNER CIRCLE. SPECIFICALLY HIS DAUGHTER, IVANKA. >> AND ALEX, NOW ATTORNEY JOHN EASTMAN SAYS THE DOJ HAS SEIZED HIS PHONE. WHAT ARE INVESTIGATORS LOOKING FOR THEIR? >> SO EASTMAN'S, HE'S A RIGHT-WING LAWYER AND HE WAS THE ONE WHO DRAFTED A PLAN FOR THE THEN PRESIDENT TRUMP TO CLING TO POWER BY FALSELY CLAIMING THAT VICE PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE COULD REJECT ILLEGITIMATE ELECTORS DURING THE CERTIFICATION OF JANUARY 6TH. AND SO I THINK THEY'RE GOING TO BE LOOKING FOR EVIDENCE IN POINTS THAT. AUTHORITIES SEIZED HIS CELL PHONE AS HE WAS LEAVING A RESTAURANT. THIS PAST WEDNESDAY. BUT WE'RE STILL WAITING FOR MORE DETAILS ABOUT THAT. >> ALEX PRESHA, THANK YOU AND YOU CAN TUNE INTO OUR LIVE COVERAGE OF THE JANUARY SIX HEARING AT 1 PM ON ABC NEWS LIVE AND ON HULU. PRESIDENT BIDEN MEANWHILE IS ON HIS WAY TO MADRID WHERE HE PLANS TO ATTEND A NATO LEADER SUMMIT BEGINNING TODAY. HE'S EXPECTED TO PUSH FOR FINLAND AND SWEDEN TO BECOME FULL NATO MEMBERS WHILE KEEPING THE ALLIANCE UNITED AGAINST VLADIMIR PUTIN. THE MEETING COMES AFTER THE PRESIDENT MET WITH G7 LEADERS IN GERMANY, ISSUING A JOINT STATEMENT COMMITTING TO FIGHT FOOD INSECURITY, FIGHT RISING ENERGY PRICES AND SUPPORT THE RECONSTRUCTION OF UKRAINE AS WELL AS COOPERATE ON CLIMATE CHANGE. I WANT TO BRING IN ABC NEWS WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT MARY ALICE PARKS IS STRUGGLING WITH THE PRESIDENT OVERSEAS RIGHT NOW. SHE'S LIVE FROM MADRID, MARYALICE, GOOD MORNING. UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT VOLODYMYR ZELENSKYY IS PUSHING NATO FROM MISSILE DEFENSE SYSTEMS FOR -- WHAT'S THE ALLIANCE CONSIDERING IN TERMS OF NEW AID TO UKRAINE? >> DIANE, THIS IS THE KEY QUESTION FOR THE ALLIANCE. THEY'RE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET AID TO UKRAINE QUICKLY AND EFFICIENTLY AND WHERE EXACTLY THAT LINE IS. HOW CAN THEY CONTINUE TO GET UKRAINE BIG WEAPON SYSTEMS LIKE THIS WITHOUT FURTHER PROVOKING PRESIDENT PUTIN AND. THAT IS SOMETHING THAT NOT ALL THESE NATO MEMBERS AGREE ON. SOME WANT TO BE CAREFUL, MORE CAUTIOUS ABOUT JUST HOW MUCH HEAVY WEAPONRY THEY'RE SENDING TO UKRAINE. WHEREAS OTHER SAY THE TIME IS NOW AND THEY ARE WORRIED. STRUCK BY AN INTERESTING ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE NATO SECRETARY GENERAL YESTERDAY WHERE HE SAID THEY WOULD BE SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASING NATO'S OWN READINESS POSTURE. THE NUMBER OF TROOPS THAT THEY WILL HAVE READY ON NATO'S BORDERS FROM 40,000 300,000. THIS IS THE KIND OF ADDITIONAL SORT OF SUPPORT MILITARY TACTICS THAT NATO IS GOING TO BE LOOKING AT AND DISCUSSING HERE OVER THE NEXT DAYS THAN. >> MARY ALICE, THIS IS THE FIRST NATO SUMMIT WHERE INDO-PACIFIC LEADERS LIKE JAPANESE PRIME MINISTER FUMIO KISHIDA WILL ATTEND. HOW SIGNIFICANT IS THAT? >> THIS IS INTERESTING. THIS IS A BIG PUSH FROM THE WHITE HOUSE. PRESIDENT BIDEN SAYING THAT HE WANTS TO HAVE THESE GLOBAL DEMOCRACIES, PRESENT HERE. THAT HE THINKS IT'S IMPORTANT THAT THEY'RE PART OF THIS CONVERSATION. THAT NATO IS ABOUT STANDING UP FOR DEMOCRACY ACROSS THE GLOBE AND THAT MEANS HAVING CLOSER RELATIONSHIPS WITH DEMOCRACIES EVEN IN FAR EAST ASIA AND INDIA. AND I THINK THAT WE'RE GOING TO SEE HOW THOSE COUNTRIES RESPOND TO SOME OF THESE CONVERSATIONS AROUND STANDING UP TO THE RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT. I THINK THAT'S PART OF THIS TO. THE UNITED STATES WANTS TO HAVE THESE OTHER DEMOCRACIES CLOSER TO THE UNITED STATES TO START, TO PUT A LITTLE BIT OF AN ARMS LENGTH BETWEEN THEM AND RUSSIA. SO PART OF THIS IS KIND OF TRYING TO BRING FRIENDS TO THE TABLE AND SEE IF YOU CAN FORGE BETTER BONDS. >> G7 LEADERS SAY THEY'LL TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION TO SECURE ENERGY SUPPLY AND REDUCED PRICE SURGES. INCLUDING POTENTIALLY USING PRICE CAPS SO WHAT IMPACT COULD THAT HAVE? >> THEY ARE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO HELP THEIR COMMUNITIES BACK HOME, ALL THESE LEADERS ARE STRUGGLING WITH ECONOMIC RIPPLE EFFECTS OF THE WAR IN UKRAINE. GAS PRICE SPIKES AND GROWING INFLATION, THESE ARE THINGS THAT HAVE BEEN MADE WORSE BY THE WAR IN RUSSIA. BUT THE WAR IN UKRAINE, RUSSIA'S INVASION OF UKRAINE. THEY'RE TRYING TO FORGET HOW THEY CAN BOTH FIND IDEAS THAT WILL PUNISH PUTIN, THAT'LL MAKE HIM HAVE TO PAY FOR THE COST, PAY A HIGH PRICE FOR THIS FOR. BUT ALSO WORK ON THOSE ECONOMIC THINGS. SO THEY'RE TRYING TO COME UP WITH A WAY TO CAP THE PRICE OF RUSSIAN OIL. THIS IS VERY COMPLICATED, IT IS NOT A DONE DEAL. BUT THE G7 LEADERS FOR WORKING ON THIS A LOT THE LAST FEW DAYS AND I MENTION IT WILL COME UP AGAIN HERE IN NATO. THEY'RE TRYING TO SEE IF THEY CAN LEVERAGE SOME OF THE SYSTEMS THEY HAVE IN MOVING RUSSIAN OIL. TO BE ABLE TO SET A PRICE AND SO THAT RUSSIA CAN'T PROFIT SO MUCH IN THIS MOMENT WITH ENERGY PRICES ARE SO HIGH. >> AND FIRST LADY JILL BIDEN IS ALSO THERE WITH THE PRESIDENT IN MADRID, WHAT ROLE IS SHE PLAYING? >> SHE'S REALLY TRYING TO PLAY COMFORTER HERE ON THE GROUND IT'S INTERESTING TODAY THAT SHE WENT AND SAW REFUGEES WHO HAVE FLAT FROM UKRAINE ALL THE WAY TO MADRID SHE WANTS TO AGAIN PUT A HUMAN FACE ON THIS WAR. IT'S SO EASY TO TALK ABOUT THINGS LIKE WE JUST WERE, GAS PRICES AND INFLATION. SOME OF THE ECONOMIC RAMIFICATIONS AND TO FORGET THAT PEOPLE ARE AT THE HEART OF THE STORY OF COURSE. PEOPLE SUFFERING IN UKRAINE AND PEOPLE THAT HAVE FLED THEIR HOMES THAT ARE HERE IN MADRID. SHE WAS WITH US TODAY, DIANE. MARY ALICE PARKS IN MADRID, THANK YOU. >> COMING UP, NEW DETAILS ON RUSSIA'S ATTACK ON CIVILIANS IN UKRAINE. TARGETING A SHOPPING MALL. OUR REPORTERS ON THE SCENE JUST MOMENTS AFTER THAT STRIKE.

UKRAINE'S PRESIDENT SAYS THE DOUGH THAT STILL COULD BE, QUOTE UNIMAGINABLE THE FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT JAMES LONGMAN HAS MORE FROM THE SCENE IN CENTRAL UKRAINE. >> IN THE WAKE OF THE HORRIFIC RUSSIAN ATTACK ON A SHOPPING MALL, AT LEAST 18 PEOPLE ARE DEAD. MANY OTHERS ARE STILL MISSING. THEY'RE ABOUT 59 INJURES. OFFICIALS ARE CALLING THIS ATTACK A MASH CASUALTY. PRESIDENT ZELENSKYY THAT SAYS THAT OVER 1000 CIVILIANS WERE INSIDE THE MALL RIGHT BEFORE THE MISSILE STRUCK. THIS VIDEO ONLINE SHOWS MOMENTS AFTER THE STRIKE PEOPLE DESPERATELY TRYING TO ESCAPE. FOR THOSE UNABLE TO GET OUT ON THEIR OWN, EMERGENCY WORKERS WERE RUSHING INTO THE SCENE HOPING TO REGISTER ANY SURVIVORS. >> THE RECOVERY OPERATIONS UNDERWAY. THEY'RE TRYING TO GET AS MUCH OF IT OUT. TO SEE IF THERE'S ANY SURVIVORS. LOOK, THIS IS JUST HELL. THE MULLET WAS MILES AWAY FROM THE FRONT LINE WITH NO MILITARY SIGNIFICANCE. RUSSIA HAS REPEATEDLY INDISCRIMINATELY HIT CIVILIAN TARGETS SINCE THIS WAR BEGAN. >> THIS IS NOT ONLY WAR AGAINST RUSSIA AGAINST UKRAINE. THIS IS A WAR OF EVIL AGAINST PUTIN. >> ANOTHER HOSPITAL, ANALOGIZE AND WAIT FOR NEWS. >> [INAUDIBLE] THEY THINK SHE -- I CAN'T REACH OR. >> PLEASANT LANDSCAPE LABELED RUSSIA THE WORLD'S LARGEST TERROR ORGANIZATION. SAYING THIS ATTACK IS ONE OF THE MOST DARING TERRORIST ACTS IN EUROPEAN HISTORY. THIS IS WESTERN LEADERS MEET AT THE G7 CONFERENCE IN GERMANY.
