Transcript for ABC News Live: Key takeaways from former White House aide’s Jan. 6 testimony
BEFORE THE ATTACK. >> HE LOOKED AT ME AND SAID SOMETHING TO THE EFFECT OF, CASSIDY, ARE YOU EXCITED FOR THE SIXTH? IT'S GOING TO BE A GREAT DAY. PRESIDENTS GOING TO BE THERE, HE'S GOING TO LOOK POWERFUL. >> CONFUSED, SHE SAID SHE WENT AND TALKED WITH HER BOSS, TRUMP CHIEF OF STAFF MARK MEADOWS. >> HE DIDN'T LOOK OUT FROM HIS PHONE AND SAID SOMETHING TO THE EFFECT OF THERE IS A LOT GOING ON, CASSIDY, BUT I DON'T KNOW, THINGS MIGHT GET REAL, REAL BAD ON JANUARY 6TH. THAT EVENING WAS THE FIRST MOMENT THAT I REMEMBER FEELING SCARED. >> HUTCHINSON SAYS WE'LL MEADOWS ACKNOWLEDGE SOMETHING WAS WRONG, HE DID NOTHING TO STOP IT. EVEN ON THE MORNING ON JANUARY 6TH, THE WHITE HOUSE LEARNED THAT SOME OF TRUMP SUPPORTERS WERE ARMED. >> I GOT THREE MEN WALKING DOWN THE STREET, CARRYING AR-15S. >> AS THE PRESIDENT PREPARED TO DELIVER HIS REMARKS, HUTCHINSON WAS BACKSTAGE. SHE SAYS TRUMP WAS ANGRY THAT MORE OF THE CROWD WASN'T BEING ALLOWED INTO THE SECURE AREA. SHE SAID TRUMP DEMANDED THE SECRET SERVICE REMOVE THE METAL DETECTORS BECAUSE HE WASN'T THE TARGET. >> I OVERHEARD THE PRESIDENT SAY SOMETHING TO THE EFFECT OF, I DON'T EFFING CARE THAT THEY HAVE WEAPONS, THEY'RE NOT HERE TO HURT ME, TAKE THE EFFING MAGS AWAY. LET MY PEOPLE IN, THEY CAN MARCH TO THE CAPITOL FROM HERE. >> THE PRESIDENT TELLING THE CROWD HE WOULD MARCH WITH THEM. >> WE'RE GOING TO WALK DOWN AND I'LL BE THERE WITH YOU. >> SOMETHING THE SECRET SERVICE AND WHITE HOUSE COUNSEL PAT CIPOLLONE INSISTED TRUMP COULD NOT DO. >> MR. CIPOLLONE SAID SOMETHING TO THE EFFECT OF PLEASE MAKE SURE WE DON'T GO UP TO THE CAPITOL, CASSIDY. KEEP IN TOUCH WITH ME. WE'RE GOING TO GET CHARGED WITH EVERY CRIME IMAGINABLE IF WE MAKE THAT MOVEMENT HAPPEN. >> SHE SAYS THE PRESIDENT WOULDN'T HEAR IT. WHEN HE FINISHED SPEAKING AND GOT IN THE MOTORCADE, SHE SAYS TRUMP EXPECTED TO JOIN HIS SUPPORTERS. BUT HUTCHINSON SAYS LEAGUE SECRET SERVICE AGENT ROBERT ANGLE REFUSED. SAYING IT WASN'T SAFE. HUTCHINSON SAYS SHE SAW ANGLE AND DEPUTY CHIEF OF STAFF TONY ORNADO SHORTLY AFTER THEY RETURNED TO THE WHITE HOUSE. DESCRIBING ANGELA IS LOOKING DISCOMBOBULATED AND LOST. >> PRESIDENT SYSTEM TO THE EFFECT OF I AM THE EFFING PRESIDENT, TAKE ME UP TO THE CAPITAL NOW. TO WHICH BOBBY RESPONDED, SIR, WE HAVE TO GO BACK TO THE WEST WING. THE PRESIDENT REACHED UP TOWARDS THE FRONT OF THE VEHICLE TO GRAB AT THE STEERING WHEEL. MR. ENGEL GRABBED HIS ARM. SAID SIR, YOU NEED TO TAKE YOUR HAND OFF THE STEERING WHEEL. WE'RE GOING BACK TO THE WEST WING. WE'RE NOT GOING TO THE CAPITAL. MR. TRUMP THEN USED HIS FREE HAND TO LUNGE TOWARDS BOBBY ENGLE AND WHEN MR. ORNADO HAD RECOUNTED THE STORY TO ME, HE MOTIONED TOWARDS HIS CLAVICLE. >> HUTCHINSON SAID IT WASN'T THE FIRST TIME THE PRISON EXPLODED IN RAGE, DESCRIBING THE CATCH SHE SAW DRIPPING DOWN THE WALL AFTER TRUMP LEARNED HIS ATTORNEY GENERAL BILL BARR HAD PUBLICLY REJECTED TRUMP'S FALSE CLAIMS OF ELECTION FRAUD. >> THE VALET HAD PARTICULARLY -- PRESIDENT WAS EXTREMELY ANGRY AT THE ATTORNEY GENERALS AP INTERVIEW. AND HAD THROWN AT HIS LUNCH AGAINST THE WALL. >> AS TRUMP SUPPORTERS REACH THE CAPITOL ON JANUARY 6TH AND VIOLENTLY FORCE THEIR WAY INSIDE, SHE SAYS THE CHIEF OF STAFF INITIALLY DID NOTHING. >> I SAID HEY, ARE YOU WATCHING THE TV, CHIEF? HE SAID YEAH. RIOTERS ARE GETTING REALLY CLOSE, HAVE YOU TALK TO THE PRESIDENT? HE SAID NO HE WANTS TO BE ALONE RIGHT NOW. >> HUTCHISON SAID CIPOLLONE FINALLY GOT MATT'S ATTENTION. >> SOMETHING TO THE EFFECT OF MARK SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE OR PEOPLE ARE GOING TO DIE ON YOUR EFFING HANDS. >> THE PRESIDENT WAS UNMOVED. EVEN WHEN TOLD THAT -- MARK HAD RESPONDED SOME TO THE EFFECT OF, YOU HEARD HIM PAT, HE THINKS MIKE DESERVES IT HE DOESN'T THINK THEY'RE DOING ANYTHING WRONG. >> INSTEAD TRUMP SENT A TWEET CONDEMNING PENCE WRITING HE DIDN'T HAVE THE COURAGE TO DO WHAT WAS NECESSARY. >> IT WAS UNPATRIOTIC, IT WAS UN-AMERICAN, WE WERE WATCHING THE CAPITOL BUILDING THAT HE FACED OVER A LIE. >> NOW HUTCHISON ALSO ADDED IN THE DAYS AFTER THE ATTACK, MARK MEADOWS WAS SEEKING A PRESIDENTIAL PARDON RELATED TO JANUARY SIX AND WE ARE NOW HEARING FROM OTHER MEMBERS OF TRUMP'S INNER CIRCLE, PUSHING BACK AGAINST OTHER PARTS OF WESTERN SYSTEM ONE. INCLUDING PUSHBACK FROM A FORMER WHITE HOUSE LAWYER UNDER PRESIDENT TRUMP. AND AS FOR THE PRESIDENT HIMSELF, HE IS ALSO QUESTIONING CALLING INTO QUESTION OTHER PARTS OF HUTCHISON SESAME. DISPUTING PORTIONS OF HER ACCOUNT. HE RESPONDED WITH A FLURRY OF ONLINE POST IN REALTIME. DIANE, IT'S CLEAR THE FORMER PRESIDENT IS PAYING VERY CLOSE ATTENTION HERE. >> HE SURE IS, MARY BRUCE THANK YOU. AND THE SECRET SERVICE NASA'S AGENTS ARE PREPARED TO COOPERATE WITH THE JANUARY SIX COMMITTEE. THEY'RE EXPECTED TO PUSH BACK AGAINST PART OF HUTCHINSON'S ACCOUNT OF WHAT HAPPENED IN THE PRESIDENTS VEHICLE. ON JANUARY 6TH. ABC'S CHIEF JUSTICE CORRESPONDENT PIERRE THOMAS DIDN'T HAVE MORE. HI PETER. >> DIANE, GOOD MORNING. THAT'S RIGHT, THE STATEMENT SAYS THAT AGENTS ARE PREPARED TO GIVE A SWORN TESTIMONY IN RELATION TO THESE NEW ALLEGATIONS. TWO SOURCES FAMILIAR WITH THE INVESTIGATION TELL ME THAT WHEN PRESIDENT TRUMP RETURNED TO HIS MOTORCADE, AFTER GIVING THAT SPEECH ON JANUARY 6TH, HE REQUESTED THAT AGENTS TAKE HIM TO THE CAPITOL. THOSE SOURCES TOLD ME THAT ROBERT ANGLE WASN'T THE AGENTS IN THE CAR SYSTEM TO THE EFFECT OF THAT BEING UNWISE OR DANGEROUS. AND THAT THE MOTORCADE WAS GOING TO RETURN THE PRESIDENT OF THE WHITE HOUSE. A SOURCE CLOSE TO THE SECRET SERVICE TELLS ME THAT THE PRESIDENT WAS APPARENTLY NOT HAPPY WITH THAT ANSWER BUT THAT AGENTS IN THE CAR OR PUSH BACK AGAINST ANY ALLEGATION OVER THE ASSAULT PRISON TRUMP AND THE ALLEGATION THAT HE HAD REACHED FOR THE STEERING WHEEL. DIANE. >> PETER THOMAS, THANKS. I WANT TO BRING IN ABC'S ALEX PRESHA IN WASHINGTON FOR MORE ON THIS. ALEX CASSIDY HUDSON TESTIFIED THAT MARK MEADOWS SAID DAYS AHEAD OF TIME THAT JANUARY 6TH COULD GET QUOTE REAL, REAL BAD. SHE SAID TRUMP KNEW HIS SUPPORTERS WERE ARMED, HE TRIED TO GET THE MEDAL DETECTORS TURNED OFF SO THEY COULD JOIN THE RALLY. AND THAT HE WANTED TO LEAD THEM TO THE CAPITOL HIMSELF. HOW ARE LAWMAKERS REACTING TO THAT? >> DIANE WE KNEW THAT CASSIDY HUTCHINSON WAS GOING TO ACT AS THE DOG CONNECTOR IN THIS NARRATIVE. SHE HAD A PERSPECTIVE THAT MANY FOLKS DID NOT. WORKING WITH THE FORMER CHIEF OF STAFF AND ALSO HAVING ACCESS TO THE PRESIDENT'S CALENDAR. FRANKLY, THERE'S BEEN A LOT OF SHOCK AND I WILL SAY IT'S BIPARTISAN, CERTAINLY WOULD EXPECT THAT FROM DEMOCRATS BUT EVEN YESTERDAY WE HEARD FROM REPUBLICAN LAWMAKERS SPECIFICALLY JOHN CURTIS OF UTAH. WHO SAID THAT THIS TESTIMONY WAS SOBERING. AND SO YES, THERE IS GOING TO BE A PICKING APART AND A RE-DISSECTING OF HER WORDS FROM YESTERDAY IN THE COMING DAYS. BUT AT LEAST RIGHT NOW, HER TESTIMONY WAS VERY, VERY POWERFUL AND STRIKING A CHORD. >> ALEX, THE SECRET SERVICE, I MEAN SECRET, LITERALLY THE FIRST WORD IN WHAT THEY DO. THEY ARE VERY BIG ON PRIVACY AND YET WE'RE NOW HEARING THAT SECRET SERVICE AGENTS MAY TESTIFY. TO PUSH BACK AGAINST SOME OF WHAT HUTCHINSON SAID HAPPENED IN THE PRESIDENTS MOTORCADE. HOW SIGNIFICANT IS THAT AND HOW IS HER CREDIBILITY WEIGHING OUT NOW THAT THERE IS BEEN A LITTLE BIT OF TIME AFTER HER TESTIMONY? >> DIANA, SO I THINK THAT'S A BIG THING. IS THIS WITNESS CREDIBLE? AND CERTAINLY, SECRET SERVICE HAS AGENTS THAT ARE READY TO TESTIFY AND PUSH BACK AGAINST THAT ACCOUNT. THAT WOULD GO TOWARDS THE ARGUMENT OF THAT SOME WITHIN TRUMP'S INNER CIRCLES HAVE SAID THAT THIS WITNESS CASSIDY HUTCHINSON IS NOT A CREDIBLE PERSON. I KEEP IN MIND THAT THIS WAS A SECOND HAND ACCOUNT THAT SHE WAS DISCUSSING YESTERDAY. TESTIFYING TOWARDS. BUT ALSO IT DOESN'T TAKE AWAY FROM THE FACT THAT HER KNOWLEDGE, HER FIRSTHAND KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THAT OFF THE RECORD TRAVEL PLAN FOR THE PRESIDENT TO GET INSIDE THAT SUV AND GO TO THE CAPITOL. THAT IS SOMETHING THAT SHE HAD KNOWLEDGE WITHIN CERTAINLY THIS INCIDENT ALLEGED INCIDENT WITH HIS SECRET SERVICE AGENT THAT ANGLE WHO IS PROTECTING THE PRESIDENT. THAT CERTAINLY ONE OF THE MORE INFLAMMATORY ANECDOTES FROM YESTERDAY'S TESTIMONY. BUT I THINK ALSO THE FACT WAS THAT THE COMMITTEE IS TRYING TO CONNECT THE DOTS BETWEEN THE PRESIDENT MARCHING WITH THESE RIOTERS UP TO THE CAPITOL AND THAT IS SOMETHING THAT CASSIDY HUTCHINSON HAD FIRSTHAND KNOWLEDGE OF ANTICIPATED TO EFFECTIVELY. >> ALL RIGHT ALEX PRESHA THANK YOU. AND PRESIDENT BIDEN IS IN MADRID FOR THE NATO LEADER SUMMER WHEN HE ANNOUNCED THE EXTENSION OF SOME U.S. TROOP DEPLOYMENTS IN EUROPE AND SOME NEW MILITARY AID TO KEY NATO ALLIES. BIDEN ALSO SAID THE U.S. WILL ESTABLISH A PERMANENT MILITARY HEADQUARTERS IN POLAND. I WANT TO BRING IN FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT TOM SUPERAGENT UKRAINE AND A WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT MARY ALICE PARKS. WHO'S TRAVELING WITH THE PRESIDENT FOR MORE ON THIS. TOM I WANT TO START WITH YOU. AND PRESIDENT BIDEN ANNOUNCING THE STRONGER MILITARY PRESENCE IN EUROPE. WHAT IMPACT THAT HAVE ON THE WAR IN UKRAINE? >> DIANE I THINK THIS IS ABOUT THE IMPACT IT COULD HAVE ON THE WAR IN UKRAINE AND MORE ABOUT DETERRING RUSSIA FROM TAKING ACTION AGAINST OTHER SOVEREIGN EUROPEAN NATIONS. SO IT'S AN INCREDIBLE INCREASE IN THE U.S. TROOP PRESENCE AND MILITARY PRESENCE ACROSS EUROPE. PARTICULARLY ON THE EASTERN FLANK. WE'RE TALKING ABOUT MORE F-15 SQUADRONS IN THE UK. MORE TROOPS IN ITALY. BUT CRUCIALLY THE U.S. IS SAYING THIS WILL BE THE FIRST TIME IT'LL HAVE A PERMANENT MILITARY BASE ON THE EASTERN FLANK IN POLAND. AND MORE TROOPS IN THE BALTIC STATES TO. AND PRESIDENT ZELENSKYY'S PITCH TO THAT NATO SUMMIT TODAY WAS THAT COUNTRIES LIKE LITHUANIA ONE OF THE BALTIC STATES ARE IN PRESIDENT PUTIN'S CROSSHAIRS AT THE MOMENT. HE SAID THAT THIS WAR IN UKRAINE IS ABOUT MUCH MUCH MORE THAN THE SOVEREIGNTY OF THIS NATION. AND FOR THE FIRST TIME ONE OF THE FIRST TIME SHE'S ACTUALLY PUT A FIGURE ON THE AMOUNT OF FINANCIAL AND MILITARY SUPPORT HE WANTS FOR THIS COUNTRY TO DEFEAT RUSSIA. HE SAYS THE COUNTRY NEEDS FIVE BILLION DOLLARS EVERY MONTH. A HUGE AMOUNT OF MONEY. >> MARY ALICE TURKEY HAS AGREED TO PAVE THE WAY FOR FINLAND AND SWEDEN TO JOIN NATO. SO AS THE SIGNIFICANCE OF HAVING THOSE TWO COUNTRIES JOIN THE ALLIANCE AND WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR THEIR SECURITY OVERALL? >> DIANE, THIS IS A BIG DEAL. IT SEEMS LIKE NATO IS SET TO GROW. IT WILL BE 32 COUNTRIES INSTEAD OF 30 COUNTRIES IN THE NEAR FUTURE. TURKEY HAD BEEN THE ONE LONE HOLDOUT THESE LAST FEW MONTHS. AS SOON AS FINLAND AND SWEDEN SAID THAT THEY WERE INTERESTED IN JOINING THE ALLIANCE, UNITED STATES PUT THEIR FULL SORT OF SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGEMENT BEHIND THIS. WE SAW THOSE TWO LEADERS AT THE WHITE HOUSE WITH THE PRESIDENT. THE PRESIDENT SAYING HE THOUGHT THIS IS A GREAT IDEA TO CELEBRATE. TURKEY HAD BEEN A HOLDOUT, SKEPTICAL, WARNING ONE-ON-ONE TALKS WITH THOSE TWO COUNTRIES. IT SEEMS THAT THEY COME TO AN AGREEMENT AND THAT THEY'RE GOING TO MOVE FORWARD. THERE IS AT LEAST AN UNDERSTANDING OF THIS IS GOING TO HAPPEN. AND WHATEVER -- IF THEY ARE, IF THIS DOES HAPPEN, WHEN THIS DOES HAPPEN NOW, THEY WILL HAVE THE PROTECTION OF NATO. THAT ARTICLE FIVE. THOSE -- ATTACK AGAINST ONE IS AN ATTACK AGAINST ALL AND THAT THEY WOULD, AT NATO, THE ENTIRE ALLIANCE WOULD HAVE TO COME TO THEIR DEFENSE. SHOULD, FOR EXAMPLE, RUSSIA ACROSS THOSE BORDERS. IT'S HARD TO IMAGINE SOMETHING LIKE THAT HAPPENING BUT IT DOES SHOW JUST HOW NATO HAS BECOME SO MUCH MORE POPULAR AND THESE COUNTRIES WANT THAT KIND OF COLLECTIVE DEFENSE. >> AND TOM, IN HIS ADDRESS TO THE UN SECURITY, UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT ZELENSKYY SHARED THIS VIDEO. SHOWING THE MOMENT THAT MISSILE HIT A SHOPPING MALL IN CENTRAL UKRAINE. >> I MEAN, THE BLAST IS HUGE. WHAT'S THE LATEST ON THAT ATTACK? >> IT'S ABSOLUTELY SHOCKING. SO THE LATEST DEATH TOLL, DIANE, IS STILL 18 PEOPLE BUT PEOPLE ARE STILL MISSING. THERE ARE STILL RECOVERING BODIES AND THAT RESCUE OPERATION BECAUSE THAT SITE WAS COMPLETELY OBLITERATED. AND WHAT'S INTERESTING IS THAT FROM THE MOMENT THAT ATTACK HAPPENED, IN THE MID AFTERNOON, IN THAT CITY AT THE CENTER OF UKRAINE. RUSSIA STARTED TO QUESTION THE UKRAINIAN ACCOUNT. BUT IN TYPICAL FASHION, THE KREMLIN HAS CHANGED ITS THEORIES, IT FIRST TRIED TO BLAME THE ATTACK ON UKRAINE. THEN IT SAID THAT ACTUALLY IT WAS HITTING AN AMMUNITION DUMP NEARBY AND SOMEHOW THAT CAUSED AN EXPLOSION ONTO THE SHOPPING MALL. AND NOW WE'RE SEEING THAT CCTV FOOTAGE, IF YOU LOOK AT THE CCTV FOOTAGE AND COMPARE THAT TO SATELLITE IMAGERY. IT'S GENUINE, IT SHOWS THE MISSILE COMING. WE'VE SPOKEN TO ABC NEWS, TO PEOPLE AT THE SCENE, TO PEOPLE WHO WERE HIT. THIS LOOKS AND -- THOMAS WHO CONVERSION UKRAINE, MARY ALICE PARKS MADRID. TRAVELING WITH THE PRESIDENT. THANK YOU BOTH >> AND THE DEATH TOLL HAS RISEN TO 15 ONE IN WHAT SAN ANTONIO'S FIRE CHIEF CALLS THE DEADLIEST HUMAN SMUGGLING CASE IN U.S. HISTORY. MIGRANTS WERE DISCOVERED ABANDON IN A TRACTOR TRAILER IN THE BRUTAL TEXAS HEAT. INVESTIGATORS SAY THE ALLEGED SMUGGLER ABANDON THE TRUCK ON A REMOTE ROAD TO GIVE. HIMSELF MORE TIME TO GET AWAY. CHIEF NATIONAL CORRESPONDENT MATT GOVERNMENT HAS THE LATEST FROM SAN ANTONIO. WELCOME BACK, THE ADMINISTRATION'S UNDER PRESSURE TO TAKE ACTION ON ROE V. WADE. THE ADMINISTRATION SAYS IT WILL PROTECT ABORTION RIGHTS INCLUDING INCREASING ACCESS TO MEDICATION ABORTIONS, BUT OFFERED VERY FEW SPECIFICS. ABC'S CONGRESSIONAL CORRESPONDENT RACHEL SPOT SCOTT HAS THE. LATEST >> CONFUSION AND UNCERTAINTY, AS THE FIGHT OVER ABORTION PLAYS THAT STATE BY STATE. >> AND NOW WE ARE ANTICIPATING THAT SERVICES WILL BE ABLE TO BE CONTINUED, SUBJECT TO THE CONSTANT BACK AND FORTH OF LITIGATION. >> IT IS BEING CHALLENGED IN COURT. JUDGE IN LOUISIANA, TEXAS, AND UTAH, ALLOWING SOME ABORTIONS TO RESUME FOR. NOW >> WE WILL BE CALLING BACK THE WOMEN WHO WE HAD TO TURN AWAY ON SATURDAY. SO THAT THEY CAN COME BACK AND GET THEIR PROCEDURE, IF THEY HAVEN'T MADE OTHER ARRANGEMENTS. >> THE PATCHWORK OF ABORTION THAT ACCESS, CAUSING WHIPLASH FOR ADVOCATES ON BOTH SIDES. >> NOBODY BELIEVED THAT THE FIGHT WAS OVER, THAT OVERTURNING ROE WASN'T AND ALL. >> IN TOTAL, AT LEAST 13 STATES HAVE NOW STOPPED NEARLY ALL ABORTION SERVICES. AND OVER A DOZEN OTHERS, ARE LIKELY TO TAKE ACTION IN THE COMING WEEKS AND MONTHS. WE WOULD DR. AMY WHITAKER AT A CLINIC IN ILLINOIS. THE STATE HAS QUICKLY BECOME A SAFE HAVEN FOR LEGAL ABORTION, AS THE RULING STATES MOVE TO BLOCK ABORTION ACCESS. >> IT'S BEEN A DIFFICULT COUPLE DAYS, I'M NOT GONNA SUGARCOAT. IT IS SO HEARTBREAKING TO SEE PATIENTS WHO'VE HAD TO TRAVEL SO FAR TO GET BASIC HEALTH CARE. STUDIES SHOW THE STATES WITH THE MOST RESTRICTIVE ABORTION LAWS, HAD INVESTED THE LEAST IN POLICIES IN PROGRAMS FOR WOMEN AND CHILDREN. >> THE IDEA THAT YOU WOULD MAKE A COMPLETE ABORTION BAN WITHOUT HAVING THAT INVESTMENT, WITHOUT HAVING UNIVERSAL ACCESS TO FREE COMPREHENSIVE QUALITY, PRENATAL CARE, WITHOUT HAVING ACCESS TO FUNDED CHILDCARE IS TO ME IS UNACCEPTABLE. >> DIANE, THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION SAYS THAT EVERY OPTION IS ON THE TABLE WHEN IT COMES TO PROTECTING ACCESS TO ABORTION, INCLUDING EXPANDING ACCESS TO MEDICATION ABORTION. BUT THEY OFFERED FEW SPECIFICS, AND CLEARLY THE LANDSCAPE IS CHANGING QUICKLY, STATE BY STATE. DIANE. RACHEL SCOTT, THANK YOU. COMING UP FEDERAL OFFICIALS ARE SUING WALMART ACCUSING IT OF FAILING TO STOP SCAMMERS FROM STEALING HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS FROM CUSTOMERS. HOW THE WELCOME BACK TO ABC NEWS LIVE THE FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION IS SUING WALMART OVER ALLEGED SCAMS THAT MAY HAVE CAUSED VICTIMS MILLIONS OF DOLLARS. THE FTC CLAIMS THAT FOR YEARS, FORMER FAILED TO PROPERLY TRAIN EMPLOYEES DEALING WITH MONEY TRANSFER SERVICES OR ALERT CUSTOMERS ABOUT A RISE IN MONEY TRANSFERS FRAUD. ENTERING THE FTC SAYS CAMERA SWINDLED WALMART CUSTOMERS OUT OF HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS. THE AGENCY NOW WANTS THE COMPANIES TO PAY BACK CUSTOMERS AND PAY SEVER PENALTIES. WALMART SAYS A LAWSUIT IS FACTUALLY FLAWED AND LEGALLY BASELESS AND THE COMPANIES FRAUD EFFORTS ARE ROBUST AND HAVE HELP PROTECT CONSUMERS. FDA ADVISERS ARE RECOMMENDING THAT COVID-19 BOOSTER SHOTS BE MODIFIED BEFORE FALL TO BETTER TARGET MORE RECENT VARIANTS OF COVID-19. THE FDA WILL HAVE TO DECIDE THE EXACT NEW MAKEUP BUT THEY EXPECTED TO BE A COMBINATION SHOT THAT ADDS PROTECTION AGAINST THE OMICRON OR SOME OF ITS NEWER VARIANTS. SINGER R.
