4:10 am
iotsi members, camera members, makeup artists, sound and lighting teches and other crew they will still have to vote to approve the deal but the tentative agreement includes this, 3% wage hike, improvements in pay, in conditions of streaming productions. martin luther king day as a holiday, a ten-hour daily rest period and 54 hours of rest on the weekends of course, not all workers say those terms do enough. some members compare the 3% annual raises to a now 5.4% inflation rate this year they are obviously under water others say ten hours of rest a day is not enough to sleep, eat and commute. the union reports members will get the details of the agreement in the coming week before an online vote to ratify it meanwhile, thousands o other workers across the country are still on the picket line a strike by about 10,000 john deere workers entered its fifth day today, and community members now say they fear the impact of
4:11 am
a prolonged walkout. one farmer told an nbc affiliate he worries about not having enough parts shod his equipment break down and a john deere parts supplier says he was closed on friday because of a lack of work he says long term the strike would be very detrimental to his business some health care workers in hawaii and in northern california also could be heading for a strike it would be part of a kaiser permanente walkout that includes some 31,000 members at the moment the strike expansion would add to the picket line more than 1,500 pharmacists, physical therapists and speech pathologists strikes across america in february of 2020, ahmaud arbery was shot while jogging in a georgia neighborhood two months later, video of what happened leaked. then allegations a local prosecutor was helping the men accused. then local laws overhauled today more than a year and a
4:12 am
half after arbery died, the trial begins. for the first time, former president trump sits for several hours of questions the civil lawsuit at the heart of his videotaped testimony. and shoppers providing a boost to the economy, but will it last? cnbc's steve liesman on the push to keep you spending through the holiday months >> announcer: the facts, the truth, the news with shepard smith back in 60 seconds
4:13 am
the trial for three white men accused of killing a young black man began today in georgia. attorneys started vetting hundreds of potential jurors a year and a half after the shooting of ahmaud arbery. prosecutors say he was out jogging near brunswick, georgia in february of last year they say three white men chased him down in their trucks the suspects are greg and travis mcmichael, father and son, and
4:14 am
their neighbor roddy bryan graphic video is shown with the mcmichaels confronting arbery and we're pausing the video right before the young mcmichaels shot him. they claimed they shot arbery in self-defines bryan followed in his truck and this morning ahmaud arbery's mother says she wants justice for his son. >> justice looks like all three defendants going to jail forever. today i'm very thankful that we've reached this stage of the case to pick a jury. i'll stick with these men behind bars for a long time. >> legal analysis from david henderson, legal rights attorney and defender what should prosecutors push for during jury selection? >> more than anything you want a
4:15 am
diverse jury we've seen it time and again in these types of cases you want at least two people on that jury who can sympathize with ahmaud arbery and those will be black two, at least two to have a fight chance. >> did you see the defense trying to use a self-defense argument here? >> they are definitely going to try to use that self-defense argument and ridiculous though i believe it is, got to remember we've gone through four prosecutors and the second prosecutor bought it the second prosecutor said they committed no crime because they were defending themselves based on extremely flawed logic. >> david what, will you be watching for specifically during the early stages to see which side is getting the upper hand legally? >> shep, more than anything else is has to do with how they pick that jury. any good lawyer knows and would never admit you don't change people's minds can you only appeal to what they already believe. i want to see how they handle the jury selection also, the defense is walking a tight rope in trying to say this had nothing to do with race
4:16 am
because travis mcmichaels was caught several times using racial epithets after he shot and killed ahmaud arbery so how they manage that will be critical in the early phases. >> david henderson, thank you. for years former president trump was been able to avoid giving video depositions for a slew of lawsuits against him today that changed under a judge's order mr. trump was deposed on camera and under oath by a group of protesters who say they were roughed up while demonstrating outside of terrorism tower in 2015. tom winters is with us donald trump facing really a pile of civil lawsuits fair to say that this deposition could be kind of a beginning >> i think you're absolutely right, shep, and good evening. i think the allegations here are pretty serious when you have people saying that they were punched in the head by trump's personal bodyguard in his right-hand man keith shiller there'sin a allegation that another protester was nearly
4:17 am
choked and that some of the things that they wore and the things that they had to demonstrate those signs and what they were wearing were taken from them and what they say was a violation of their rights of free speech. this lawsuit moving forward after the trump organization and the president's attorneys have strenuously denied and have been denying the allegations contained in it. they did try to effectively have the case dismissed, but today's deposition nearly four hours in length is, as you said, the first time since the president became the president and since he's left office that he's had to sit down for one of these one of the attorneys involved in this lawsuit representing these protesters ben dicter spoke after about the nature of the evidence. >> there is evidence to submit that donald trump has directed his security guards to engage in force on numerous occasions both
4:18 am
before and after the incident at issue during his presidential campaign and thereafter. >> shep, the former president also coming out with a statement today which we can look at saying that the -- he's thankful that he finally has the opportunity to speak about what happened here, and he called -- called the allegations essentially ridiculous in his statement, and so the president leaving trump tower about an hour and five minutes ago east coast time on his way back presumably back to mar-a-lago and leaving his former residence here in new york as you alluded to these troubles that he's facing here in new york state court could perhaps be the tip of the iceberg. he faces other lawsuits including defamation suits from two women, lawsuits from democratic members of congress about january 6th, and he's been firing back with his own lawsuits suing his niece mary trump as well as today looking to block some document being turned over to that january 6 committee. shep. >> tom winter live in our

4:33 am
the office of intelligence and analysis to one building in washington where they could start watching the movements of migrants also a big part of this is watching social media, building grip s -- building algorithms to see where smugglers would meet with the migrants oftentimes it's disrupting information, information that tells immigrants now is the time to come. if you come now, you can stay. they think that if they can get to those groups and interrupt those messages faster, they will be able to interdict and keep people from making the trip to the united states, and in the case where they do make the trip, they think they will be able to better allocate resource thoz those parts of the border so they are not caught by surprise like they were in september when those haitians that you mentioned arrived. >> you know, these large care advance, we've been reporting on them for years there's nothing new here why this program now >> well, it's interesting. a number of officials that i
