1:00 am
ah, i'd love to, but people get really emotional when i sing. help from a team that will exceed your expectations. ♪♪ hello and welcome to our viewers joining us here in the united states and all around the world. you are watching "cnn newsroom." i'm rosemary church. just ahead, free to focus on the future after wrapping up donald trump's second impeachment trial. he still faces major legal issues. america's vaccination program is picking up with nearly 53 million doses in arms, but is it fast enough to stay ahead of the variants? we'll take a look. prince harry and his wife meagan are expecting their second
1:01 am
child. we will have a live report with reaction from the royal family . good to have you with us. there may be some in washington, d.c., who are moving on from donald trump's second impeachment trial, but debate over the former president's acquittal still rages on in some quarters, specifically over house impeachment manager's decision against calling witnesses. however, they point out the republican loyalty to trump has remained largely unshakeable. that remained conviction unlikely despite the evidence. >> we could have had 1,000 witnesses but that could not have overcome the kinds of silly arguments people were hanging their hats on.
1:02 am
>> just so the american public is aware, witnesses in a senate hearing do not come and stand before the senators and make any statements. it's a deposition. it's videotaped and that is brought before the senate. so i know that people are feeling a lot of angst and believe that maybe if we had this, the senators would have done what we wanted but, listen, we didn't need more witnesses, we needed more senators with spines. >> meantime, president joe biden is focused on his agenda with a top priority getting support for his economic stimulus plan. he's pushing for gun reform. on sunday he called on congress to pass laws that would ban assault weapons and end immunity for gun manufacturers. sunday was the third anniversary of a deadly high school shooting in parkland, florida. trump may have been acquitted but he is facing the
1:03 am
possibility of legal action. we have more on that. >> reporter: legal issues for the now former president only continue. the attorney general in new york state conducting a civil investigation into some of the former president's finances and real estate dealings. also, the manhattan da's office conducting a criminal investigation into the former president's business dealings. remember, they had asked for eight years of his taxes. they're waiting to get that information from the supreme court. that decision is pending. the attorney general in washington says they are going to be investigating the president for his comments, for his speech on the day of the insurrection. the attorney general in d.c. has been looking into the inauguration. his daughter had to be deposed for that investigation and, of course, there are civil laws
1:04 am
that are still pending against the president, mainly from two women who had accused him of defamation. so the legal problems for the former president certainly will continue. he can no longer claim that he is the president of the united states, that he can't be sued or that he can't face any kind of criminal investigation as a result of his position. so all these investigations and all these laws are now expected to continue and perhaps we can see an escalation. cnn, washington, d.c. trump still commands the loyalty of many republicans, but he has sharply divided his party. maryland governor larry hogan represents one view that republicans must move past trump for the good of the country. >> i think there are far more people that agree we've got to move on from donald trump, that agree he was part of inciting
1:05 am
this mob at the capitol, they're disgusted by how he treated mike pence and -- as they're building gallows and talking about hanging mike pence. a lot of republicans are outraged but they don't have the courage to stand up and vote that way. they're afraid of being primaried or lose their careers. you have to look at what's best for the country and not worry about the next election or whether you're going to be elected to something or not. >> most republicans hold views like senator lyndsey graham who say trump holds the key to victory. >> if you want to win and stop a socialist agenda, we need to work with president trump. we can't do it without him. to you, president trump, you need to build a republican party stronger. i'm into winning, and if you want to get something off your chest, fine, but i'm into winning. >> so let's talk about this with cnn's senior political analyst
1:06 am
david gergen. he is a former presidential advisor to nixon, ford, ragan and clinton. always great to have you with us. >> thank you, rosemary. good to see you. >> you, too. despite overwhelming evidence presented by house impeachment managers, 43 republican senators still voted to acquit donald trump, including senator mitch mcconnell who then went on to say that trump's conduct was a daze disgraceful dereliction of duty and holding him practically and morally responsible for provoking the riot on january 6th but he wasn't courageous enough to hold him responsible, was he? he's leaving that up to the judiciary. what is your reaction to all of this? >> well, it's been a distasteful several weeks. i think the worst transition we've ever had in american history, one that we're glad is over and maybe we can start talking about the future instead of the past. look, nobody won on this.
1:07 am
senator mcconnell, who's very clever on this as you well know. first he held up the paperwork so that -- this trial could have started when donald trump was president. by holding things up, donald trump left the presidency, he was replaced and then senator mcconnell who had held things up says, well, we can no longer convict him because he's no longer president and that means it would be unconstitutional to do that. so mcconnell trying to have it both ways. >> so senator lyndsey graham and other republicans who lined up behind trump think he is the man to lead them and yet trump lost his own election and was the reason why red states turned blue and why tens of thousands of republicans are leaving the party. so why do they still think trump is the man to lead the republican party? all polls are indicating that's not the case. >> they don't think he should be
1:08 am
leading the party, they're just too darn afraid of him to say so. their cowardess is contagious. trump still is the dominant player in the republican party. he has been battered by this. his reputation within the party, especially outside the party, has hurt him badly, but even so, he remains the most powerful person and who can mobilize his base and the off year election is in two years. he can get involved in the election in 2024. if he's still around, if he's healthy, he can run for president again, but i think this episode has tarnished the republican party. we know now donald trump will go down in history as one of the worst if not the worst american president we've ever had. the republican party will go down in history as the most radicalized party since the 19th century and all of that is going
1:09 am
to mean that our politics is -- no longer sets the example for the world and our democracy is under heavy, heavy pressure. we may suffer blows to our democracy and come to regret this really badly. >> david gergen, thank you so much. >> thank you. good to see you. >> you, too. well, now to an increasingly tense situation in myanmar where the military chief has just amended the country's penal code appearing to target protestors, journalists and critics of the coup. the country is on edge since the military seized power two weeks ago. protests continue for a tenth straight day despite a heavy mill tear ri presence. internet services have now been restored for an eight hour blackout. attention was on full display sunday night.
1:10 am
that video shared showing myanmar military forces firing several rounds to disperse protestors. we're following the protests from seoul. paula, what is the latest on the military's intentions on the streets of myanmar? >> reporter: rosemary, it's certainly clear that over the weekend, sunday night we saw that the level of force the military is willing to use to try and disperse protesters is escalating. that video you referenced there showing that they did open fire on protesters to try and disperse them. we don't know for sure whether they were live rounds or rubber bullets, and we're also trying to see if there's any official word on whether there were any injuries, but you can clearly see and hear people fleeing the area, people panicking. the water cannons also being used. there is a real concern that
1:11 am
this level of force being used could continue to escalate. up until this point it's not making any difference to tens of thousands of people who are still coming out into the street, calling for the military leadership to step down and reinstate the democratically elected government. rosemary? just ahead, we will have a live weather report on winter storms battering the u.s. and leaving hundreds of thousands without power. you'd never wash your dishes in this. your dishwasher looks clean but, when grease and limescale build up, it's not as hygienic as you think. use finish dishwasher cleaner its dual-action formula tackles grease and limescale. finish. clean dishwasher. clean dishes.

welcome back, everyone. researchers say they have made a troubling discovery in the fight against covid-19. they've identified a batch of similar mutations in coronavirus samples circulating in the u.s. that appear to make the virus more transmissible. top health experts have been warning about the emergence of variants and the critical role of vaccines.
1:16 am
>> in south africa. people got sick, recovered, and got reinfected which tells us that prior infection does not protect you against reinfection, at least with this particular variant. somewhat good news is it looks like the vaccine is better than natural infection in preventing you from getting reinfected with the south african isolate. >> despite improving coronavirus numbers, the spread has medical experts worried about what could happen over the next few months. cnn's natasha chen has the story. >> reporter: fewer than 70,000 people in the u.s. are in the hospital with covid-19, a level we haven't seen in about three months. but looking ahead at the next three months, another 130,000 people are expected to die of
1:17 am
coronavirus by june 1st. what could make things worse? analysis of existing research in the u.k. suggests the variant first identified there makes the virus more severe. >> it makes people more sick and it's more likely to lead to serious complications. the somewhat comforting news is that the vaccine that we are now currently distributing, the moderna vaccine and the pfizer vaccine clearly work against this variant. >> reporter: some teachers are now among those receiving the more than 50 million vaccine doses administered across the country, including in colorado where teachers became eligible this week. >> it's very exciting and it's a step closer to what everyone wants which is schools open full time with teachers and students. >> reporter: michelle walensky is a proponent of vaccination, she wants procedures such as
1:18 am
universal masking. >> it sounds to me like you're asking for 100% mask compliance and a number of measures that we're never going to be able to achieve and that makes me feel like, boy, i don't know if the schools are ever going to reopen until everybody is vaccinated. >> there is literature out that shows if people wear masks you can safely open schools. this is directly related to how much disease is in the community. we have more flexibility in opening schools as our disease rates come down. >> reporter: the effort to stop community spread includes stopping crowds. 40,000 people are at the cheer sport national competition in atlanta though they are staggered events. it's the largest event hosted in atlanta since the event began. in new orleans, crowds on bourbon street more than a week ago prompted them to shut down bars this week until tuesday.
1:19 am
>> i think it's terrible. the worst part is they didn't announce that until everyone had already come in. >> this haunted history tour guide supports the move. >> we have to keep everybody safe so we can celebrate mardi grass for years to come. >> while new orleans keeps bars shut down through mardi gras, new york state through sunday night is extending the hours that restaurants, gyms, casinos can stay open. they can stay open until 11 a.m. that's because of declining hospitalization and infection rates. natasha chen, cnn, atlanta. joining me now from omaha, nebraska, is dr. ali khan. he is the dean of the university of nebraska medical center's college of public health. good to have you with us, doctor. >> always a pleasure, rosemary. >> so we have just learned that researchers have identified new u.s. covid mutations that appear
1:20 am
to make the coronavirus more transm transmissible, which is what all the other variants appear to do as well. so how concerned are you that as the cases, hospitalizations and eventually deaths start to trend down, these various mutations will derail those positive trends if we can't speed up vaccinations? >> absolutely. these variants really do risk our positive trends we've seen, for example, of 37 declining cases in the last two weeks in the united states. so these viruses are very sloppy when they copy themselves. so there's thousands of variants and most of the variants usually are detrimental to the virus. a handful are detrimental to us as humans. this is expected in countries that fail to get the disease under control. the virus has a chance to mutate and become the variants of concern. >> that's the frustrating part especially when we have the vaccine there.
1:21 am
dr. anthony fauci says sobering data on the south africa variant reveals that current vaccines are less effective against it than the u.k. variant or the original virus. what will need to be done to ensure all of the vaccines can fight the south african variant or anything else that comes out? >> the variants are still susceptible to good public health practices. masking, social distancing, washing hands, contact tracing, those measures still work. yes, we believe currently getting vaccinated decreases disease in our community. decreases the chance of diseases spreading. over time there is the likelihood that just like influenza we will need to have a booster for whatever variant is out there in the community. >> the good news in the midst of
1:22 am
this that 53 million covid doses have been administered so far. 2 million in just one day. that is exactly the direction we need this to be going. how much faith does that give you, that all of those americans who want a vaccine will get one in the next few months? >> so the vaccination news is absolutely excellent. vaccinating over 1.65 million people a day. the goal was 1.5 currently so we're beating that goal. states are vaccinating approximately 75% of the doses they have are being administered. so good efficiency going on at the local and state health department. it looks like come april there will be more than enough vaccine for everybody. eastern by the end of march we're expected to have 200 million doses of vaccine available. >> dr. ali khan, thank you so much for joining us. >> you're welcome. mask on, america. >> good message. thank you. >> thank you.
1:23 am
well, more than half a million customers across the u.s. are without power as brutal winter weather blasts the country from coast to coast. from washington state to washington, d.c., nearly half of all-americans are under a winter weather advisory. president joe biden has even declared a federal emergency in texas. so for more on that, i want to turn to meteorologist tyler morton. how bad will this get and for how long? >> pretty rough pretty much all week. we have this arctic air plunging down and it's really engulfed the entire plains where it is currently minus 37 degrees in international falls. it is 22 degrees right now in houston, texas. this entire area is under a wind chill warning, and you can see why. we have had wind chills already reported in the 30ed and the 40s. that's what it feels like on
1:24 am
your exposed skin. the wind chill warnings stretch from the canada border down to new mexico. some areas could see wind chills all the way down to minus 50. it is certainly going to be well below average. we'll see our temperatures 50 degrees below average in some spots monday going into tuesday. is this record-breaking territory? absolutely. in the next 24 hours we could see more than 250 temperatures be broken. it's not all about the temperatures. we have some precipitation to deal with. we have thunder snow and thunder ice currently occurring in houston, texas. we have heavy snow in dallas and we have the rainfall, the snow, some ice across portions of the lower mississippi valley. this is where we have winter storm warnings in effect, too. those warnings stretch from the southern plains all the way to new england as the system pushes to the northeast.
1:25 am
heavy snow to bitterly cold temperatures and ice will accompany this. this is impactful. we're going to see travel disrupted. we're also seeing power outages currently. the power outages are going to grow in number over the next 48 hours. heavy snow is certainly possible. we're going to see a swath of about 12 inches of snow across the ohio river valley and heavier amounts off the lakes. in addition, we are going to see just some detrimental ice accumulation, especially in portions of alabama and tennessee where we could see up to half an inch of ice. that is certainly enough to take out some power lines, rosemary. >> hopefully if you can stay inside and stay safe. tyler, thank you so very much. still to come here on cnn, the u.k. reaches a significant milestone in its battle against covid-19. what can the rest of the world learn from this? a live report from london. that's next.

welcome back, everyone. there is a renewed push to pass u.s. president joe biden's $1.9 trillion covid relief bill. mr. biden is also focused on getting more cabinet nominees confirmed by the senate now that donald trump's impeachment trial is over. cnn's arlitt saenz has more from washington. >> reporter: with the senate impeachment trial in the rear-view mirror, president biden can now push his agenda up on capitol hill with their full attention. that includes trying to get his nominees confirmed as well as passing the $1.9 trillion covid
1:30 am
relief package. the house is continuing the markup of the legislation later this week and the president will also be holding hearings at the white house. he will be taking his sales pitch on the road. he is hosting a cnn town hall in milwaukee, wisconsin, on tuesday and thursday traveling to a pfizer facility in the state of michigan. all of this as the president is trying to promote that covid package. there are still some details related to that measure that need to be hammered out in the coming weeks. the president is willing to negotiate on who would receive the $1400 stimulus checks as democrats and republicans have talked about the need for them to be more targeted. right now the key priority is getting the $1.9 trillion package passed. arlitt saenz, cnn, the white house. south africa will reopen 20 land border crossings that were
1:31 am
shut last month to try to stop the spread of covid-19 infections. travelers will also be required to show a negative covid test upon entry and the government is cracking down on fake tests saying they carry a heavy penalty. what's the latest on all of this and the vaccine rollout? >> reporter: i think it's a sign that the authorities believe that south africa is getting out of this brutal second wave which was driven by the variant discovered here in south africa late last year. you had last month the 20 land border checks and it stopped traffic between the countries. it had a pretty major impact on this region. they have decided to open it up again. it is required to have a negative test and as you say there is a clampdown on the
1:32 am
alleged fake tests, up to five years in prison. it shows they are more confident. i'm looking at the stats every day like we all have been across the world. positivity rates are down. death rates are down. the level of confirmed infections are down. the worry, rosemary, with increased travel between countries and the opportunity for super spreading events that you could see another wave, a third wave in this region as you hit wintertime later this year. now they thought vaccines would be the answer. there have been complications as we've been reporting because astrazeneca vaccine in particular has been seen as not as effective against mild and moderate covid-19 because of the new variant. there is good news that the scientists are saying they could roll out as soon as this week a very large implement study with health workers of the johnson & johnson vaccine which has seen
1:33 am
to be effective particularly with severe disease. the trouble is is how do you get to a stage if you have a much larger amount of vaccines coming into the country that work, that is still being worked on, but at least shots could be going into arms late this week and that is a good sign. rosemary? >> yes, that is certainly a very good sign. david mckenzie joining us live from johannesburg. many thanks. australia is making anyone travel in from new zealand quarantine in a hotel for 14 days. new zealand locked down the largest city, aukland, because of a small cluster of cases there. the country had success containing the virus last year with an early and strict lockdown. aukland's mayor tells cnn they did the same thing this time. >> we have been really successful in dealing with containing covid after the
1:34 am
initial outbreak and we were on a learning curve then. what we discovered was that the best way to contain the virus is to go strongly and go early. so for much of the period of the last, you know, 2 or 300 days we've been able to live our lives practically normally going about life without the need for facemasks, without the need for social distancing, but in a world that's -- you know, wrnl covid is so rampant you will be seeing it. the latest case is a family of three. the woman of the three worked in a service providing food and laundry services for international airlines and we suspect that that may be the connection and then her daughter and husband have contracted the
1:35 am
virus. we've decided we should respond in the same way. after a bit of a weekend after watching america's cup races and people enjoying the sunshine and the beaches and the parks and the festivals, suddenly we are in a 72-hour lockdown. >> the mayor of aukland there, and he went on to say mass testing might allow the lockdown to end after just 72 hours. in the u.k., prime minister boris johnson says his country has reached a significant milestone in its battle against the coronavirus. the u.k. has now administered 15 million first doses of covid-19 vaccines. mr. johnson calls it an extraordinary fete. it factors into the decision on when and how to lift the lockdown. the country's health secretary says that judgment will be made this week. meantime, the prime minister will be hosting joe biden later
1:36 am
this week as part of a virtual g7 event on fighting the pandemic. mr. johnson spoke to cbs about his relationship with the u.s. president. >> i am thrilled that president biden has also got a slogan build back better. i think i claim that we used it first, to be truthful. we nicked it from someone else before i started using it, but it's the right slogan. we've got to learn from this pandemic. we've got to learn how to share information, to how to share drugs properly, how to make sure we don't hoard things like personal protective equipment as you saw earlier on in the pandemic. we want to make sure we are distributing vaccines. >> cnn's scott mcclain joins us now from london. good to see you, scott. it has to be said, the u.k. did struggle at the start of this pandemic but is now doing very well when it comes to administering covid vaccines.
1:37 am
>> reporter: hey, rosemary. you're not wrong to ask that obvious question. how is it that the u.k. got so far ahead in the global vaccine race, especially considering this country has taken a lot of criticism on the handling of the pandemic. it was slow to lock down, slow to close the borders, reluctant to close the borders and not that successful in tracking the vi virus. it's offered everyone who's living or staffing a care home and everyone over the age of 70 a vaccine. the uptake has been more than 90%. the key to success here seems to be a combination of a smooth national health service rollout of the vaccine but also some early big bets on then unproven vaccines. >> in our line of work you're not normally seeing it. >> reporter: one by one the needles are uncapped, viles
1:38 am
drawn and shots go into the arms. while the work here is routine, the setting is not. >> i've been in the foreign service for 30 years and seen some things but i've never thought i'd see this. >> reporter: this has turned into a covid vaccination center. elsewhere, stadiums, racetracks, mosques, cathedrals are being used as vaccination sites all coordinated through a nationalized government-run health system that looks remarkably sufficient. >> does it feel like a war-time effort? >> absolutely. >> reporter: into the third national lockdown with one of the highest death rates on earth, not much about brittain's battle against the coronavirus can be called a success. the u.k. has injected more than germany, france, space, italy, belgium, poland combined. >> reporter: how is it the u.k. got so far ahead?
1:39 am
>> the speed, scaling up and the ability to deploy at speed. >> reporter: at the forefront of that speed, the vaccine task force that steve bates was a part of. >> i think having a small group that makes decisions easier and faster. >> reporter: unusual mix of public servants and current and former industry executives led by kate bing ham. >> venture capital skill set and biotech mind set is what needed. >> reporter: and having a hotline to the prime minister meant the chains of command. >> reporter: success was no guarantee. >> in some respects i expected to be here justifying why we had spent so much money on something that hadn't worked. we were taking a risk on making doses before those results came out. we might have had to put it all in the bin. >> reporter: the u.k. bet big on the oxford vaccine agreeing to
1:40 am
front most of astrazeneca's vaccine. >> an oxford vaccine that was in trial here and wasn't deployed here. >> reporter: it involved a lot of risk, ditching us and the work was proven invaluable. >> 7 vaccines chosen out of 100. the u.k. was the first country to choose a vaccine. >> we did that because we were click and nimble and clearly not the largest buyer. >> reporter: back at the fire hall they're injecting 1,000 doses a day, around half a million across the country. >> we've had some dark, difficult days. there's a sense there's a light at the end of the tunnel now. >> reporter: and another light at the end of the tunnel, the health secretary said this morning that the government would be deciding this week when
1:41 am
and how it can safely lift some of the lockdown restrictions given the success of its vaccination program thus far. others will have to keep unknown strains of the coronavirus out. government scientists say the dominant strain already here, b117, based on a new analysis of existing data, it appears it is increasingly likely that strain is more deadly than the original virus because it causes more severe illness. rosemary? >> scott mcclain bringing us the latest there from london. many thanks. the world's largest ebola outbreak started in guinea seven years ago, and now that country has declared a new outbreak in one of its southeastern districts. the world health organization is working with authorities in

supporters of jailed russian opposition leader alexey navalny are finding new ways to protest. they're getting their message across while staying out of the hands of the police. matthew chance shows us how.
1:46 am
>> reporter: for the moment russia seemed on the brink. mass protests, angry demands for alexey navalny, russia's jailed opposition leader, to be released. these are very different scenes now sweeping russia. cell phones briefly held up in solidarity with the opposition ca calls. one protesting couple posting a valentine's proposal. this has been intentionally dialed down. >> we definitely needed to retreat and alter our strategy in order to get those people involved who are not ready to withstand police brutality but want to express their solidarity and love. >> reporter: it's certainly not love the riot police have been expr expressing, cracking down hard on unsanctioned demonstrations,
1:47 am
detaining thousands of people nationwide amid protests. international condemnation has been little sign the kremlin is backing down. president putin has made a rare mention of the unrest although he still didn't utter alexey navalny's name referring to this time only as that figure. >> translator: you know what, that figure is being used right now at the moment when people in countries all over the world, including russia, are getting tired and frustration is showing itself. dissatisfaction with the living conditions. >> reporter: and while that figure continues to languish behind bars now appearing in court on liable charges which he denies, analysts suggest the russian government may unveil a new economic package to ease discontent ahead of key parliamentary elections later this year. how shaken, how concerned do you think vladimir putin is seeing
1:48 am
the extent of those nationwide protests with people coming out onto the street? how threatened do you think he is by this? >> i want to believe he's very much threatened. i want to believe he fears them because for the first time this looks like a popular nationwide protest. this is something he has never faced before and something i hope he feels threatened about. >> reporter: they feel the strategy of confronting protesters has paid off. the opposition is planning more mass protests in the spring. for the moment at least putin's grip seems to be holding. matthew chance, cnn, moscow. thousands of protesters in haiti are demanding the president step down. opposition leaders and civic groups saying his term ended last week but he insists he has
