6:32 pm
american history that a search warrant has been issuedn on a former president. and, given the political implications, approval came from the very highest levels of the department of justice. white house officials say president biden had no prior knowledge of the search, and current f.b.i. director christopher wray was appointed by trump five years ago. cbs's robert costa is here in studio, but we begin tonight with cbs's major garrett with all the details from palm beach, forida. good evening, major. >> reporter: jericka, good evening. a trump lawyer who was at mar-a- lago yesterday told us the f.b.i. pretty much arrived in full force, with agents and personnel numbering more than 30. they brought a box truck for document removal. the search, this lawyer told us, targeted three rooms: the former president's bedroom, his office, and a storage room. his office and a storage r the f.b.i. executed a search of mar-a-lago, former president trump's primary residence, around 10:00 a.m. monday. two sources told cbs news, investigators seized boxes
6:33 pm
and paper documents, but no electronics. the secret service maintains a constant presence at the former president's home, and facilitated the f.b.i.'s entry. authorities also opened trump's safe. at least two of trump's attorneys were present during the search. >> that's right, another day in paradise. this was a strange day. you probably all read about it. >> reporter: the documents are believed to contain classified information. trump and federal investigators had been in negotiations over the records, and the f.b.i. visited mar-a-lago in june. mishandling classified materials is potentially criminal. federal law requires presidential records to be turned over to the national archives. it is not known what documents were taken by federal authorities monday. the justice department has, so far, declined to comment. as night fell monday, pro-trmp protestors gathered outside mar-a-lago. more assembled there today. what do you think will be the practical political reaction for people who favor or support
6:34 pm
former president trump after yesterday? >> i think he will win in a landslide in 2024. >> reporter: trump was not home, but released a statement alleging that he was a victim of a politicized justice department. a sentiment echoed by former vice president mike pence, who said "the appearance of continued partnership by the justice department must be addressed." congressional republicans rushed to trump's defense. house minority leader kevin mccarthy said republicans would investigate attorney general merrick garland's role in the f.b.i. search. >> what the hell are these people doing? >> reporter: south carolina republican lindsey graham spoke to trump today and called the search of mar-a-lago suspicious and dangerous, yet helpful to the president's political fortunes. >> one thing i can tell you, is that i believed he was going to run before-- i'm stronger in my belief now. >> reporter: trump, eager to portray himself as the victim, sent out two fundraising texts to supporters. speaking of money, in a separate
6:35 pm
development, a federal appeals court ruled democrats on the house ways and means committee can obtain former president trump's personal and business tax returns-- something trump argued unsuccessfully congress had no legitimate right to pursue. later tonight at his golf club in bedminster, new jersey, trump will huddle over dinner with more than a dozen conservative house republicans. jericka. >> duncan: major garrett for us in west palm beach tonight, thank you. for more on the possible criminal and political implications of this f.b.i. search, let's bring in cbs's robert costa. robert, good evening to you. what sort of implications does this have for a potential run for the former president, which is looking at a possibleed bid in 2024? >> reporter: it could speed up his decision on 2024. cbs news has learned tonight that many top republicans on the trump side of the party are calling him, saying, "get in now, consolidate the base around you, block out rivals from running, and complicate life for the justice department-- become a federal candidate, even while you might be under
6:36 pm
federal investigation." others are saying, "hold off, wait, see how this develops." >> duncan: and donald trump has endorsed nearly 200 candidates already since he left office. what are republicans saying in reference to him being the sort of de facto leader? by some-- some would say that's what he is, in the party? >> he is the leader of a wing of the party, but the party isn't universally behind him. as major said, about a dozen house republicans are going to be in new jersey tonight, rallying at his side, but the mood inside the senate g.o.p. in some quarters-- wait to see how this plays out, because they know that trump is still a risk for the party in many ways. but at the same time, so many in the party are ready to aggressively go after the justice department in 2023, should republicans win the house majority this fall-- house republican jim jordan and others preparing investigations. political war on the horizon. >> duncan: all right, robert costa for us tonight, thank you. now to some breaking news-- the manhunt in albuquerque,
6:37 pm
new mexico is over. police say they have made an arrest in the killings of four muslim men whose deaths sparked fear in muslim communities nationwide. cbs's omar villafranca is there. >> reporter: tonight, the manhunt in albuquerque is over. >> this crime made our community feel like it was under attack. >> reporter: authorities announcing they have arrested muhammed syed, 51, after finding evidence that ties him to the murders of two muslim immigrants. >> this is the kind of work, this collaboration, that will yield results. this is law enforcement, and all partners at their best. >> reporter: investigators are charging syed with two counts of homicide, and are investigating other charges related to the other two murders. authorities say they matched gun casings from the crime scenes with the gun found at syed's home. police say the suspect may have known the victims to some extent, and describe an interpersonal conflict that may have led to the murders. >> as we know, over the last
6:38 pm
few days, our community has been rocked to its core by the loss of members from our muslim community. >> reporter: the break in the case comes after four men were shot in ambush-style attacks, three in the last two weeks, and one in november. 25-year-old naeem hussain was shot friday just hours after attending funeral services for muhammad afzaal hussain and aftab hussein, who were killed in similar attacks. last year, 62-year-old mohammad zaher ahmadi was murdered in a similar-style attack. tonight's arrest ends the cloud of fear that gripped this tight-knit community, but police say the investigation continues. >> there is still a lot of work that needs to be done, there is still a lot of evidence that needs to be verified. this case is not resolved until we have a successful prosecution and people are held accountable. >> reporter: police credit the muslim community for sending in hundreds of tips that led to an arrest. and, even though a suspect is in custody, police say they will keep up the increased patrols around mosques and islamic centers.

( laughs ) >> i know you're joking, but can you-- >> i'm not joking. >> reporter: then, just hours later, came this bombshell essay in "vogue," where williams writes, "i have been reluctant to admit that i have to move on from playing tennis. it comes up and i start to cry." next month, williams will turn
6:40 pm
41. >> her mind and spirit would love to keep playing, but she realizes her body is just saying, i'm done. i don't think the benevolence was like, first and foremost in her mind-- "oh, let's let the younger generation"-- because she would love to crush them. >> reporter: having grown up before our eyes, williams has won 23 grand slams, including six u.s. open titles and seven wimbledon championships. on the court, williams is a superstar. off the court, she's a brand. forbes puts her net worth at $260 million, and she's used her influence to speak out on civil rights and motherhood, and just how it feels to miss a major milestone. "she took her first steps... i was training, and missed it. i cried." her daughter olympia greeted serena after monday's match. moving toward the end of her storied career, she boils it down to just one word. >> freedom. >> reporter: the news brings
6:41 pm

6:43 pm
tom caulfield is the c.e.o. of global foundries. what stage are we at in this chip shortage? >> takes years to put capacity on. and i think, for the better part of the next five to ten years, we'll be chasing supply in this industry, not demand. p>> reporter: the u.s. only produces about 12% of the world's chip supply, and it will take years to ramp up production here, which means, for now, americans will still have to pay higher prices on everything from appliances to cars. jericka. >> duncan: got to start somewhere. thanks, meg. the pain at the gas pump is easing, but is the relief here to stay? we'll show you, when we come back in 60 seconds. in 60 sec onds. eels... ...when it comes to our skin, what if it could feel differently? say hello to opzelura for the treatment of mild to moderate eczema. opzelura is a steroid-free cream proven to help clear skin
