good evening and welcome to NTV news I'm

Stephanie Cox here are today's top

stories a federal court judge has denied

the Justice Department's request to

block a book from being published the

former national security advisors memoir

is scheduled to be released on June 23rd

the mesh the Navy will not reinstate a

captain who was fired from raising

concerns about the virus an

investigation says he's partly at fault

for letting a ship's outbreak spread

Colorado passes major police reform it

bans chokeholds and makes way for

state-level civil rights lawsuits

against officers a new york city is

entering phase two of its reopening plan

but one small business owner took it

upon herself to decide when her store

should close and reopen


Attorney General William bar said in a

letter today that President Trump has

now fired a top federal prosecutor

Jeffery Berman who publicly refused to

step down yesterday Berman said he would

only step down when the Senate confirms

a nominee US Attorney General William

bar says the president is replacing US

Attorney Jeffery Berman

but Berman said he refuses to go yet

Barr announced that Berman would be

stepping down Friday night Berman said I

learned in a press release from the

Attorney General tonight that I was

stepping down as a United States


I have not resigned and have no

intention of resigning my position

Berman went on to say I will step down

when a presidentially appointed nominee

is confirmed by the Senate President

Trump is planning to nominate Jay

Clayton and he appointed Craig Harper

Nieto to serve in the interim while the

Senate considers Clayton's nomination it

goes into effect July 3rd according to

US law the president can remove any US

Attorney but the Attorney General cannot

but some legal experts say this

situation is different because Berman

was appointed as an interim attorney

they say he gets to keep serving until

the Senate confirms a permanent

successor but many experts point to a

1979 memo it says the president can

remove any US attorneys regardless of

how they got their position Berman led

the prosecution against Jeffrey Epstein

he still has not brought charges against

any of Epstein's associates Berman OSA

probed several people who were close to

the president including his lawyer Rudy

Giuliani House Judiciary Chairman Jerry

Nadler accused Attorney General Barr of

helping the president he said Berman is

welcome to testify about it on Wednesday

on his way to his rally in Tulsa

President Trump told media that he

trusted Attorney General bars decision

and that he's not involved and the US

District Court has denied the Trump

administration's request to block a book

by former national security adviser John

Bolton the court and administration

however are predicting that the release

of Bolton's book will end up hurting

Bolton in the end a federal court judge

has turned down the Trump

administration's request the blood the


of a book by John Bolton his book titled

the room where it happened lays out

details of the 17 months Bolton worked

as Trump's national security adviser the

order allows the book to be distributed

president Trump fired Boland last year

over policy differences the president

said he considers every conversation a

person had with him as classified

information so that would mean that if

he wrote a book and if the book gets out

he's broken the law and I would think

that he would have criminal problems I

hope so US District Court Judge Joyce

Lamberth denied the request because he

said the administration did not

demonstrate that an injunction would do

any good the judge pointed out that

national security was already put at

risk since the book had been distributed

widely Lamberth also said Bolton now

stands to lose his profits from the book

deal exposes himself to criminal

liability and imperils national security

the president expects that Bolton sealed

and publication of the book will

ultimately backfire on him the US Navy

is reversing course on a decision to

reinstate a captain who was fired for

raising virus concerns the news comes

after an in-depth investigation found he

didn't properly handle the situation the

us Navy will not reinstate captain

Bret Crozier as commanding officer of

the USS Theodore Roosevelt they will

also put Rear Admiral Stewart Baker's

promotion on hold an in-depth

investigation found fault with their

handling of a virus outbreak on the ship

in late March

Tom Navy officer Admiral Mike Gill D

says Crozier and his boss were slow to

move sailors off the ship and they

released some people from quarantine too


Crozier won't be able to hold another

command position on shore or at sea but

he could be considered for other key

Navy positions over 1,000 sailors on the

ship got the virus one died from it the

investigation found the ship probably

got infected during a port visit in

Vietnam in late March Crozier wrote a

letter to the Navy asking them to pull

sailors off the ship the letter was

leaked to the media the next day on

March 31st after the leak the Navy

announced they were already taking

measures to evacuate and Crozier had

been fired the letter was sent outside

the chain of command and through an

unsecured on

aasif I'd email acting Navy secretary

Thomas moly said it raises alarm bells

unnecessarily and made it look like the

Navy was ignoring Crozier the ship spent

two weeks in port in Guam

crew members went on shore for

quarantine the ship returned to

operations on June 4th with a reduced

crew Colorado's governor signs a major

police reform bill into law it's one of

the first states to pass police reforms

following the death of George Floyd the

governor of Colorado signed a sweeping

police reform bill into law it makes way

for civil rights lawsuits against police

officers at the state level but that's

just one change bans chokeholds it

creates new standards for the use of

force it includes requiring all piece

out for officers who interact with the

public where body camera duty for police

officers to intervene if they see a

fellow officer engaging in an

inappropriate use of force the aclu

hailed the decision calling it historic

for ending qualified immunity but it

can't actually end the federal level law

of qualified immunity which acts as a

shield for officers instead Colorado

created a state-level civil rights law

without the legal shield for officers so

now Ledge victims can sue in state court

Colorado's Fraternal Order of Police

says the bill was rushed and they were

shocked at the negative consequences it

would have on officers initially but

they say they managed to get lawmakers

to make some changes to the bill for

some black lives matter is a rallying

cry against police brutality but critics

of the movement worried that its aim

isn't really to quell racial tension

NTDs Miguel Moreno has more from a

Harlan pastor who says the movement is

pitting black lives against others black

lives matter protesters are calling for

police reform racial equality and an end

to racism


but critics of the movement are

concerned that its selective which

brings its purpose into question

pastor James Manning from New York is

one of them black lives matter only

comes to some sort of prominence or not

prominence but only come to the calls of

people that are potentially that are

killed by white people the worth of a

black man is only measured if he's

killed if he's killed by a white man

manning takes a tough stance against a

movement calling it a life or being

selective for example rather than

address the tragic and deadly black on

black violence of young men in chicago

the movement focuses on incidents

involving white police officers and

black men Manning says the movement is

pitting people against one another they

will pick black people against if you


southern people or more conservative

type people they will dwarf the power of

the Tea Party and the Trump voter and

really prepare for a racial war that's

what they are capable of doing the BLM

organization says they want to eradicate

white supremacy and stop police violence

against blacks its co-founder patrice

color says the group does have an

ideological frame adding that both she

and another co-founder are trained

marxist marx advocated violent

revolution to overthrow capitalism

through struggle or conflict between

different classes in society whether

people are aware that the co-founders

are trained marxist is debatable

nonetheless some BLM protesters have

protected police officers from violence

and others have emphasized peaceful

protests while demanding police reform
