2:00 am
see if you can save by switching today. comcast business. powering possibilities. live from cnn world headquarters in atlanta, welcome to all of you watching us here in the united states, canada and around the world. i'm kim brunhuber. this is "cnn newsroom." a show of force in taiwan and it comes amid new tensions with china. iraqis are voting today to decide their country's future. plus, the january 6th insurrection and executive privilege. can donald trump prevent people from testifying about what happened?
2:01 am
live from cnn center. this is "cnn newsroom" with kim brunhuber. taiwan's military was on full display sunday in an extraordinary show of defiance towards beijing. a parade marking the anniversary of the chinese revolution allowed taiwan to showcase some of the most advanced and sophisticated weapons. nothing subtle about the message. xi jinping infuriated taipei when he called for taiwan's peaceful reunification with the mainland. cnn's will ripley was at the national day parade and has more from taipei. >> reporter: this may not match the massive scale of military grace in mainland, china, but for taiwan, this is an extraordinary site. four types of missiles rolling through the capitol in front of taiwan's presidential palace. an ominous sign of escalating regional tensions. taiwan's military has not played
2:02 am
such a role until this year. while the overall atmosphere is festive, this island is increasingly concerned about the behavior of mainland, china. provocative behavior. with those ariel incursions come new propaganda videos from the taiwanese air force saying they will defend their national sovereignty and the weapons on display here. taiwan is vowing to up its national spending on defense by billions of dollars. in 2020 alone reports say they bought $5 billion of weapons from the united states including f16 fighters and patriot missiles. increasingly calling on the support of the united states and other democratic regional allies to come to taiwan's defense. taiwan's president spoke in front of the presidential palace
2:03 am
laying out the situation as a fight for the future, not just of taiwan, but the world. >> translator: at this moment free and democratic countries have been alerted to the expansion of authoritarianism and taiwan is on the forefront of the defense line of fellow democracies. >> reporter: defending that future comes at a cost. taiwan is having to up its military spending even as they struggle to get a volunteer military force after phasing out most mandatory description here on the islands. will the weapons, the help of the united states military be enough to defend against the threat of an increasingly assertive china, as president xi jinping vows to reunify the two areas. taiwan points out that they have never been ruled by the communist party in china and they say they plan to keep it that way putting their military
2:04 am
on full display here. will ripley, cnn, taiwan. for 70 years taiwan's had an important roll in advancing and protecting america's interests in the indoe pacific region. retired u.s. army general stanley mcchrystal spoke to pamela brown about the u.s. being a strategic u.s. ally. >> if you look at this, there's an argument they make. however, since 1949 taiwan has been acting as a sovereign or independent element and it has been part of our defensive strategy in the region, so now it has become a flashpoint between china's rising military and stronger political muscle as well as economic so it's become a place where we could very easily find a flashpoint that could lead to conflict between
2:05 am
the united states and china. >> that would be terrifying, right? >> what do you think? is involvement worth risking war with china? >> there would be an argument that the chinese would make subtly it is not. they would encourage the united states to quietly back away. there are a number of reasons why i think we shouldn't. first, taiwan has been a good ally. they are key to our supply chain on chip production and they are part of the community of nations in asia. so if taiwan were suddenly to be essentially abandoned by the united states, japan, south korea, and other allies and potential allies in the region would probably recalculate their relationship with the united states so it has wider geopolitical implications. >> that was retired u.s. army general stanley mcchrystal
2:06 am
speaking with cnn. iraqis are voting in their country's general election today in a mark for boycotts and predicted low turnout. there's corruption, unem unemployment. we have the baghdad bureau chief. thanks so much for being with us. louisa, this election was brought on in large part by protests and lack of government services. you might think this would be a great day but it doesn't seem as though that would be the case. what have iraqis been telling you? >> i think because the pras protests that triggered this did not lead to the improvement they wanted to see, people are disappointed.
2:07 am
security hasn't improved. corruption is worse than ever. we have a new election law. then anyone who wants to challenge this system is really going to struggle. independent candidates are trying to organize, being intimidated. we've seen the assassination of dozens of activists. that may not seem like a big number but it's sent a message. i think one of the things that we're really sort of learning when we speak to iraqis about this election, they don't see it as an election to reform the system, even though that's what they've been promised. they want to relegitimize the system. >> so for the vote itself, what is the security situation there
2:08 am
like now? >> reporter: well, the security situation is pretty calm and they're right across the street. across iraq, outsider violence by the government, by the security forces and by militias, things have been relatively quiet. i was in ramadi five days ago for the first car bombing in five years. the security forces seemed to have it under control. >> i understand the initial results will be here within 24
2:09 am
hours. and then it will be some time before they divide up control. what happens next. >> that's where you have the election results which will come out in 24 hours and then you have the government formation which has traditionally been a difficult process. in years gone by, this has taken absolutely months. it has paralyzed the incumbent government. it has meant they couldn't take major decisions the country needed. now that may happen again but there's also a reason to wonder whether or not it might be quicker this time. i think a lot of the parties who are involved in the government formation, they want to keep the system as it is. we're hearing the horse trading started a while ago. it could be that it's a little faster than we imagined but it will still take a while. >> all right. listen, we'll keep following this story. thank you so much for being with
2:10 am
us. washington post, louisa loaf lovelock in back dad. -- baghdad. retired general died of cancer on friday. he was 67. he commanded the division credited with capturing dictator saddam hussain in 2003. he would go on to oversee the troop surge. he was promoted to army chief of staff. odierno felt the cost of the war. his son lost his arm when his humvee was attacked in baghdad 2004. he was once the world's youngest head of government. sebastian quartz resigned on friday. he stepped down a few days after his office was raided. opposition parties threatened to
2:11 am
bring a vote of no confidence against him. we have the story from london. selma, take us through the events that led to this. >> reporter: absolutely. so prosecutors raided the office of mr. kurtz. he and nine of his associates are now under investigation for allegations of corruption and bribery. essentially the allegation here is that public state funds were used to obtain polling that was favorable to kurtz and then to have that polling published in the tabloid, published in the media. those are the allegations. he has denied them of course, but in a speech he said it was time to step down for the stability of the country. he will still be a mainstay in politics. he remains the head of the people's party. he will still be seen in political circles. he's proposed the foreign minister will take his place. we'll see what happens. while austria scrambles to figure out what's next for the leadership, who is the next
2:12 am
chancellor, this has larger implications across europe. kurtz, as you said, was a young, charismatic leading conservative figure at a time that conservative political parties across the continent are losing momentum, are losing votes. i'm going to give you the example of germany i was there last month when in a stunning defeat angela merkel's center right party lost to the social democratic party. this was a period in which germany is now trying to figure out its future after merkel who is stepping down now after 16 years. so a lot of conservative politicians were looking to kurtz as the sort of new face of that conservative across europe. the other concern here is much like happened in germany with the cdu, with lang merkel's party, that inability to galvanize support, the inability to reach out to voters meant
2:13 am
losing the young vote on one end. people wanting a more green agenda, wanting a more progressive agenda and on the other end losing more right wing voters who in germany and austria were gravitating towards more far right groups. so the concern here for austria is, yes, what happens next in terms of leadership but also across the region at large when you're looking at the face of conservatism in europe, kurtz was one of the key figures. now what happens next can these movements fit into the new demands for a climate driven agenda, an agenda that is progressive but be able to meet the demands from the right for a more conservative move? without kurtz, a lot of questions being asked there, kim. >> we'll have to see if this has any wider implications. thank you so much. appreciate it. still ahead on cnn, waving executive privilege. the white house says congress can have access to a trove of documents from the trump

bipolar depression. it made me feel like i was trapped in a fog.
2:17 am
this is art inspired by real stories of people living with bipolar depression. i just couldn't find my way out of it. the lows of bipolar depression can take you to a dark place... ...and be hard to manage. latuda could make a real difference in your symptoms. latuda was proven to significantly reduce bipolar depression symptoms and in clinical studies, had no substantial impact on weight. this is where i want to be. latuda is not for everyone. call your doctor about unusual mood changes, behaviors, or suicidal thoughts. antidepressants can increase these in children, teens, and young adults. elderly dementia patients on latuda have an increased risk of death or stroke. call your doctor about fever, stiff muscles, and confusion, as these may be life threatening... ...or uncontrollable muscle movements, as these may be permanent. these are not all the serious side effects. now i'm back where i belong. ask your doctor about latuda and pay as little as $0 for your first prescription.
2:18 am
the investigation into the january 6th insurrection at the u.s. capitol is picking up steam. on friday authorities finally managed to track down former trump aide dan skavino and serve him a subpoena after struggling to find him. cnn's arlitt saenz reports. >> reporter: president biden wants to ensure that the house select committee investigating the january 6th insurrection has all the documents and information it needs. so president biden decided not to assert executive privilege over those trump administration documents that the former president, president trump, is trying to do. the white house counsel, dana remus, sent a letter to the national archives outlining their reasoning and she wrote in
2:19 am
part, the constitutional protections of executive privilege should not be used to shield from congress or the public information that reflects a clear and apparent effort to subvert the constitution itself. a reference to efforts to overturn the election. and white house press secretary jen psaki echoed that argument as well. take a listen. >> there are moments throughout history where presidents and white houses have asserted executive privilege. we will continue to evaluate those on a case-by-case basis. we are investigating a dark day. that context is important here, too. >> now psaki would not say what kind of documents this would include, whether it was phone records or visitor logs, but it's also worth noting that this decision applies to an initial set of documents submitted to the biden white house and former
2:20 am
president trump's attorneys in early september. the white house has said they are reviewing other documents and that decisions will be made on a case-by-case basis, but this all sets up a possible legal fight between the biden white house and the former president. many legal experts argue that the decisions over executive privilege sit with the current president, not the former, but it's totally expected the former president will try to fight this. but bottom line with the biden white house, what they've tried to argue is that they want to provide as much information as possible to that house select committee as they're trying to get to the bottom of what transpired around the january 6th insurrection. >> arlitt saenz, thank you for that report. cnn contributor john dean tells our pam brown why he believes the strategy won't
2:21 am
work. >> first of all, we know executive privilege is a qualified privilege, whoever invokes it. it can be balanced against the person who wants to hold it or it cannot be. i think in this instance they're going to lose. this is an investigation of an insurrection. executive privilege doesn't cover that kind of behavior. that's clearly why the white house has said we're not putting any executive privilege on this first batch of documents that have been requested from the national archives and that is going to undercut it for whoever else tries to rely on it. so, pam, i don't think it's going to work. i think it's a stall tactic and it's an effort to make these more protracted and maybe go away if they can drag it out long enough. >> that's the question, right? does this claim of executive privilege from trump slow or stop the panel from being able to ask questions and compel coope cooperation? what realistically could the
2:22 am
committee do if this does get tied up in court? >> well, if it -- first of all, we've gone through this drill recently with don mcgann when he was white house counsel. he decided to litigate it. he successfully lit at this gated it and only because he agreed to settle and compromise did they get him before the house judiciary committee, but that left the law in a mess. the court of appeals, their three-judge panel, says the house has no statute to base a civil action on to enforce a subpoena, unlike the senate which does have such a law. the house has done nothing about correcting that. the house does have inherent powers. again, they've done nothing to exercise those inherent powers. there's a resolution that was introduced by ted lu, congressman from california in the last congress which could fix that where the house could,
2:23 am
indeed, hold somebody in contempt and then fine them as long as they remained in contempt and it could get quite expensive for somebody who didn't comply. i'm not sure, pam, why the house isn't getting its act together and making these things very effective when they do subpoena them. >> that was cnn contributor and former nixon white house counsel john dean speaking with our pam brown. u.s. health experts are cautiously optimistic that the country may be turning a corner on the pandemic. hospitalizations, cases and deaths are all declining nationwide. the country is now averaging fewer than 100,000 new cases a day. some of the lowest numbers we've seen in weeks. vaccinations continue to tick up. 66% of eligible americans are fully vaccinated. that's over 187 million people. meanwhile, brazil's covid death toll has topped 600,000.
2:24 am
it's only the second country to pass the threshold in the united states. russia reported the deadliest day with nearly 970 deaths on saturday. it's the fourth day in a row the country has reported more than 900 fatalities. meanwhile, hopeful progress in portugal. on saturday it became the first country to fully vaccinate 85% of its population. indonesia is among the countries worst hit by the coronavirus in asia. thankfully daily case numbers are much lower now than they were three months ago when the second wave of its virus hit its peak. that surge took a toll on the country's health care workers. cnn's paula hancocks has the report. >> reporter: 35-year-old dr. ric ricken pregnant with her second child became a victim of the very disease she was fighting. >> translator: she contracted the virus on the 4th of july and
2:25 am
passed away on the 29th of the same month. our 8-year-old and i were positive. we recovered but not my wife who was 34 weeks pregnant. >> reporter: she was one of 208 indonesian doctors who died. the highest monthly toll since the start of the pandemic. nearly one of 800 doctors who succumb to coronavirus according to the indonesian medical association. >> translator: in july doctors were exhausted. the covid cases were increasing sharply. so was the workload. >> reporter: overwhelmed hospitals facing a severe shortage of beds and oxygen were forced to turn patients away as the highly contagious delta variant swept through the country. the problem further exas err baited by deaths of health care workers. >> translator: when many were testing positive, my wife risked her life replacing several colleagues who had fallen ill. >> reporter: dr. rickan was not
2:26 am
vaccinated. even those fully vaccinated with the most widely available vaccine in indonesia were not always safe. dr. delrory is a pediatrician who lost her brother to covid. despite being fully immunized, her brother who was a general practitioner, caught the virus and unknowingly spread it to his loved ones. >> translator: 13 members of my family were infected including my father, my mother, my brother's family, his wife and his 2-year-old child. >> reporter: though numbers have started to improve, doctors at the peak of the second wave left a serious dent in the world's fourth most populus country which already have one of the lowest doctor to patient ratios in southeast asia. four doctors for 10,000 people.
2:27 am
>> the hospital system has to turn to recruitment at the moment because of the situation. >> reporter: the government took steps to try to fix the problem offering booster shots of moderna's vaccine to front line workers. vaccination rates among the general public which were abysmally low have risen steadily since july. the country is one in eight in the world to have administered 100 million doses of vaccines, but the distribution is uneven. in the capitol jakarta, 70% are fully vaccinated. elsewhere in the country that number is just 16% putting doctors at risk. paula hancocks, cnn, seoul. before she became a politician, german chancellor angela merkel worked as a scientist. that's why she may have a special honor in storage. she visits israeli reporters. is columbus day on the way

2:31 am
welcome back to all of you watching here in the united states. i'm kim brunhuber. this is "cnn newsroom." german chancellor angela merkel is meeting with israeli officials as her time in office winds down. merkel has held a news conference with israeli prime minister naftelli bennett.
2:32 am
foremore on the latest we have more from jerusalem. how will merkel's leadership be remembered by israelis? >> reporter: it's a working visit but it's a farewell tour with angela merkel. it was initially supposed to take place in august. it was abruptly canceled because of the situation in afghanistan. angela merkel arrived last night and she has a full day today. she's being accompanied by the israeli prime minister naftelli bennett. it gives a show of her importance. she had a press conference with the israeli prime minister. she will miss it the holocaust memorial which she has done on every one of her visits. she will meet with high tech leaders and later will receive an honorary doctorate from the israel institute of technology referring to her time as a physician si 'tis.
2:33 am
germany and israel have had a relationship for years. under lang merkel's term especially that relationship has deepened. she was the first german chancellor to speak to the israeli parliament. she said on the national stage and repeated this, israel's situation is a national priority. that doesn't mean she hasn't criticized israel in the past. today she mentioned that, she said sometimes we disagree on questions regarding whether there should be a two-state solution with the palestinians. we agree there should be a lasting democratic jewish state of israel. under her term in germany they have outlawed displays of the flag of hamas. they have put a lot of investment into combatting anti-semitism. though this is a farewell to merkel, they hope the rel
2:34 am
relationship with germany will continue to be strong. one of the main topics in the relationship between israel and germany is the iranian nuclear deal. the israelis have been opposed to this and a return to the deal, germ anany is a signatory it, their tone on the opposition has softened in some ways in recent weeks and now the israeli leadership want to have some sort of alternative on the table in case diplomacy fails. kim? >> interesting. thank you so much. the man known as the father of pakistan's nuclear program will be given a state funeral in islamabad later today. aq passed away after being taken to the hospital. the atomic scientist was haled as a hero in his native pakistan but was seen as a threat by
2:35 am
providing nuclear material to iraq and iran. we're joined from islamabad. a hero from some but a villain to many others. tell us about the man and his controversial legacy. >> reporter: well, kim, aq khan is one of the few personalities in pakistan that unites all of the pakistanis across the ethnicities, the political spectrum. we've seen an outpouring of support for him. there are reports he'll be buried at the mosque, only one of two people buried there if that does happen. he is somebody who is revered in pakistan for leading the country's nuclear program. pakistan became a nuclear state in 1998.
2:36 am
it is one of the things that pakistan -- it's a very strong part of pakistan's identity, being a nuclear arm state, especially considering the foe and neighbor, india, had been working towards a nuclear program. because of that dr. aq khan is very much a hero here in pakistan. again, the united states has condemned him -- had condemned him back in 2004 for leading one of the world's most extensive nuclear proliferation programs. he's been known for helping north korea, libya, iran with developing nuclear programs. he was heavily criticized and ostracized for that. he was placed on house arrest in 2004 and released in 2009. he's had a heavy amount of security around him. his house in istanbul was very
2:37 am
difficult to access on the outskirts of istanbul. he was not able to speak to the press. his movements were severely curtailed but regardless of that, he was still seen with much criticism by the united states and the eu that pakistan had been very lenient with the way they treated aq khan with allowing him to leave house arrest. he is, like you said, very much a hero here in pakistan. a villain internationally, but someone who leaves behind a very complicated yet interesting legacy. kim? >> thank you so much, sophia saifi in pakistan. here in the u.s. a day after the senate narrowly averted a government default, mitch mcconnell said don't expect republican help next time. the u.s. could face a government shutdown in the middle of the holiday season.
2:38 am
suzanne malveaux has that. >> reporter: the claws are being sharpened going into the weekend on all sides. senate republican leader mitch mcconnell facing criticism from those in his own party for offering a life line to the democrats to temporarily raise the debt ceiling. he is now lashing out. in a scathing public letter to president biden i will not provide such assistance again if your all democrat government drifts into another avoidable crisis. your lieutenants on capitol hill now have the time they claim they lacked to address the debt ceiling through stand alone debt ceiling and all the tools to do it. the senate voted 50-48 on thursday in favor of the extension after 11 republicans, including mcconnell, joined democrats in a separate vote to overcome the filibuster, the 60 vote filibuster it needed. it was a retreat that has them more determined to put raising the debt ceiling squarely on the democrats.
2:39 am
tuesday the house is expected to vote on the two-month extension and send it to biden's desk for signature and averting an economic calamity. without this it was expected the u.s. market would tank, the dollar would lose value, the credit rating would be downgraded and there would be a big ripple effect on everyone. whether to raise the debt ceiling is not resolved, only kicked down the road as we're going to see in the weeks ahead. republicans are trying to force democrats to own the issue, pay politically and tie it to their $3.5 trillion spending bill. the only way they can achieve that is by forcing democrats to vote for it solely on their ownby 51 votes. the process known as budget reconciliation. while senator chuck schumer says, no way, it's too risky, time consuming to use that strategy, not to mention unfair for democrats to take responsibility for republicans'
2:40 am
contributions to the debt, democrats did use reconciliation to pass their $1.9 trillion american rescue plan and are aiming to use it again to get their build back better spending bill into law. suzanne malveaux, cnn, washington. still ahead, president biden formally recognizes indigenous people's day on the same day normally devoted to christopher columbus. we'll speak with a native american leader about what the president's proclamation means to them. stay with us. on sunday night and every night. nyquil severe. the nighttime, sniffling, sneezing, coughing, aching, stuffy head, best sleep with a cold, medicine.

2:44 am
columbus day be replaced. with the stroke of her pen, maine's governor did away with columbus day in 2019. the president said his proclamation doesn't go this far. >> well, today is columbus day as well as indigenous people's day. i'm not aware of any discussion of ending the prior federal holiday at this point but i know that recognizing today as indigenous people's day is something the president felt strongly about personally. he's happy to be the first president to celebrate and to make it history moving forward. >> vaughn sharp is the president of national congress of american indians and she joins me from lain quinnault, washington. thank you for being with us. president biden became the first president to proclaim friday indigenous people's day but as
2:45 am
we just heard there, unlike many cities and states, he didn't replace columbus day with indigenous people's day. was that a mistake? making this a half measure and not fully replacing indigenous people's day? >> i think it's a step in the right direction. we know as tribal nations there is a truth to be told and there are many truths that make up this country. as we progress and as we reconcile with our past, we're taking incremental steps. ultimately we do see this as a very positive move. >> would you like to see it replaced? >> yes, a absolutely. >> also making news, the president undoing the cuts by the trump administration to two national monuments in utah. this puts 2 million acres back into the national monuments. i went there a couple of years ago to cover that issue when president trump was about to shrink those areas by some 85%
2:46 am
and spoke to some indigenous leaders there about what effect this will have. for our viewers who may not be familiar with the area, why is this so important? >> this is critically important for our effort to ensure that our sacred sites maintain that nature from when time began until the end of time. we have a very spiritual connection with these places. while we've relinquished many million acres, we've never relipg wished that spiritual connection so it's critically important to us. >> tell me about that. there's so much history in that land and having it shrunk and exposed to logging, mining, other things like that, what effect would that have had? >> it would have a devastating effect. when we consider our entire being, mental, physical, spiritual well-being, just where we are as a country in terms of all the implications to our natural world through climate
2:47 am
change and other apocalyptic challenges we are facing, there are many things we don't have control over. those few things that we do and we can make a conscious and intentional effort to protect them, not aljust indigenous peoe but all of us. >> covid affects indigenous people. indigenous are among the highest risk of dieing from covid-19 than any other ethnic group and are twice as likely to die from covid-19 than white people. why have they been at such high risk during this pandemic? >> i think it's important to note that native americans have been incredibly vulnerable even before the pandemic. we have a failed system of our trustee failing to live up to a treaty, commitments and obligations. a u.s. commission on civil rights detailed the broken
2:48 am
promises report. not one federal agency is living up to the trust promises. we are failing on every metric. this exposure just made the world clear and told the world what we've already known long before covid. >> yeah. in canada there have been many tragic headlines this year about the discoveries of the bodies of indigenous children who died after they've been taken from their homes and placed in residential schools. canada still has a long way to go to address this issue. many others when it comes to ab or original issues. the issue of iptdian boarding schools has been largely ignored. there has been a bit of movement on this recently. deb haaland announced investigation. there was a bill introduced in congress to establish an american indian truth and
2:49 am
