1:00 am
a warm welcome to our viewers here in the united states and around the world. i'm paula newton. police in the uk call the killing of a lawmaker an act of terrorism. in the united states a capitol police officer faces charges in connection with the insurrection and protests over one of the strictest vaccine
1:01 am
mandates anywhere in the world and why some say it is a form of discrimination. we begin in the uk where police are calling the fatal stabbing of a member of parliament an act of terrorism. the suspect has links to terrorism. the second member of parliament to be murdered in five years. police quickly arrested a 25-year-old man believed to be a british national of somali
1:02 am
heritage. >> the police say this was a terror incident. the murder so gruesome. this must be so much for the community to take in. >> absolutely. the outpouring of shock and grief has been great. we've seen people coming to leave flowers and expressing sadness at the loss experienced. they are waking up to this terrible news that this incident is being treated as a terrorist incident being taken over by the counter terrorism policing unit and they have said the early evidence is that this attack could be linked to islamic
1:03 am
extremism. they don't suspect any other individuals were involved. they are not looking for any other suspect. they have arrested the 25-year-old british national and are appealing for any evidence that the public can provide including cctv footage and dash cam footage. you can see the nation's media is all here. this is an incident that has captured the incident and created shock waves and people are distressed by this. a few meters behind us is the church where sir david was stabbed. it is a shock that in this small seaside town something like this could happen. >> gruesome to think he was brutally stabbed and even though
1:04 am
first sresponders were there quickly, they were not able to save him. i want to point something out, after joe cox's murder that was murdered in 2016. her husband tweeted, my thoughts and love are with david's family but also saying how the pain has come back and remembering how much the public gave us after the loss of joe and i hope we can do the same here. he also tweeted that this is an attack on democracy itself. >> that's right. that's the concern we are hearing from the statements. not just tributes to him and grief but what does this mean for the policy. in talking about jo cox in 2016,
1:05 am
you mentioned this was not the first to be killed this way. in 2010, another mp was killed in meeting with voters in a similar circumstance although he survived. there is a concern about how things can continue. it is not just the violent events, the out course of the mood and events that are parts of an mp's daily life. it is a core part of their job which is meeting the people that they represent intimately, one on one spending time and listening to them. a key dynamic and core pillar of how democracy works in this country. even before the death of david
1:06 am
amos, there was concerns about prioritizing accessibility is perhaps out of date and unsafe. we are hearing promises to address this and it does seem a tipping point has been reached. in the event that that happens, it will ultimately be viewed as a diminishing british democracy. >> your right to point out about everything going on online. we've heard about abuse and threats they get on a consistent basis. >> thank you to you both. the murder of jo cox we were talking about shocked the uk days before the brexit referendum and it drove for calls for more protection around lawmakers. here is what a colleague of sir
1:07 am
david and cox said on friday. >> i do know of people who stood down in the election because the threats against them were more than they could take, and quite rightly. i know of others who decided not to stand. frankly, this is why this matters so much. the murder of jo and david are not just an attack against them, a horrific attack against them, their family and friends, it is a fundamental right to choose who they wish to represent them. what we have seen is the ability to communicate rage more easily than it has been. before, you would have to pick
1:08 am
up a pen, write a letter, get a stamp. it took so long do it and people calmed down before they fed it. now we know we can move much more quickly than that with an email. they are finding ways in which we remember that our words have actions and it doesn't matter how important or unimportant we think we are. the reality is that he we are part of what shapes nearer and it is very much up to us as individuals. wherever you live to conduct yourself as you like, your democracy to operate. we can all poison the well or we can all save it. >> some perspective on this, i'll bring in the professor of security studies at kings college. good to see you again. i wish it were under
1:09 am
circu circumstances. the police very quickly uncovered this as a possible terror incident. >> they discovered the name of the suspect in a prior investigation. they probably came across him or he was reported in the so-called prevent scheme, preventing radicalization of the government. what they are doing now is going through all of his possessions, especially through his laptop and mobil phone to see who else he is connected to to make sure that this was an act on his own or whether he was receiving instructions from other people or there were other people involved in preparing this act of terror or something else. that's what they are busy with right now. >> so far, they are searching
1:10 am
these two addresses, they are saying they don't believe they are looking for another suspect. the uk's history of battling against terrorism has been deep. you mentioned prevent strategy, the uk's counterterrorism strategy, you've even said as comprehensive as that can be, it can only go so far. >> we've seen a shift over the past 15 years, as you know, paula. in 2005, the terrorist attacks in london, seven seven. that was a coordinated attack with groups that were organized. that wasn't so easy. that doesn't happen anymore. what we are seeing now are these
1:11 am
lone attackers that are part of jihad extremists they are hovering around. there are plenty of them. it is not clear to what extent they are ready to act. the police have several thousands of people like that. you always have the risk of one of them basically doing something on their own in a place like essex where you have not a lot of police on the ground. it is a different dynamic than 15 or 20 years ago. >> absolutely. the threat and posture keeps changing. you've given your expert opinion in the united states about what should be done. i can tell you this story is resonating beyond the borders of the uk so many looking at their own security because they see
1:12 am
the extremism every day in their social media feeds. what p can you try to do to quell this am if i indication? >> you are right. and this has been reported all over western europe. social media has led to a polarization to a discord between people and politicians. if you can't have politicians speak in a normal way to people anymore. social media has not helped. we have seen people leave politics. the chances to protect politics better on the ground which is sad. you want them to interact and to
1:13 am
have police there impeding that. it is unfortunate but it seems to be necessary. >> peter, so good to have your perspective on this. appreciate it. we want to go back now to leon sea. we see boris johnson there. members of the community are so shocked by this crime. the details are so gruesome. this was a man, an mp in his office taking open office hours and he was brutally stabbed several times. despite the fact that first responders arrived, they were unable to save him. you see boris johnson there called the mp, sir david amos
1:14 am
one of the nicest, kindest people he had known. a member of boris johnson's conservative party. boris johnson really reflecting a lot of the shock over what happened and now the sobering reality of this death and murder and the investigation to follow. we remind you, as you see there, the officers paying respect with flowers. those investigators now saying this was an incident of terror, which widens the scope of investigation. we still believe police are searching two addresses in london. we'll continue to stay up on the story and see if boris johnson has more to say after this visit. we return to the united states where the u.s. house is embroiled over legal dprontation
1:15 am
o over subpoenas. an indictment has been laid against one of their own. we have the details. >> reporter: a capitol police officer is being charged with obstruction of justice. accused of warning someone who participated to pull down their pictures of the insurrection from social media. michael a. riley, a 25-year-old veteran of the force is accused of sending private facebook messages to jacob and wrote pictures of the day and wrote, feeling cute, might start a revelation later. an officer who, quote, agrees with your political stance. take part about being in the
1:16 am
building. they are currently investigating and everyone in the building is going to be charged. the chief responding quickly and placing riley on leave. obstruction of justice is a very serious allegation. the department was notified several weeks ago, upon his arrest, officer was placed on leave. new video merges from that day that shows metropolitan officer michael being pulled from inside the capitol out into a mob by a rioter. then a rioter puts a tazer on the back of his neck. he later had a heart attack and is still dealing with this. >> the chair said he will do
1:17 am
whatever they can to hold the people responsible. meeting to place charges against bannon who said he is following trump directives not to testify. on thursday and friday, the committee has scheduled depositions of three different people who planned and executed the event. making it clear, no one, including the former president is above the reach of their investigation. >> i will say this at this point, nobody is off limits to a subpoena from this committee. >> they are hoping their aggressive stance with bannon will send a message to other potential witnesses that they are not messing around. >> we have the power to get to these answers and we are dang determined to do that. >> as for that capitol police
1:18 am
officer charged, his attorney sending cnn a statement saying that he plans to fight the charges. he's also getting some support from his police union. the chair putting out a statement saying there shouldn't be a rush to judgement against riley and that he is innocent until proven guilty. reporting from capitol hill. >> joe biden says those who refused subpoenas should be prosecuted. >> i hope the committee goes after them and holds them accountable. >> do you think they should be prosecuted? >> i do, yes. >> to be clear, those comments are the strongestiest from the white house. still ahead, the u.s. cdc says masks and vaccines are a

1:24 am
vaccine protection was high. in august, there was erosion. look at johnson and johnson. it fell to just three. >> i think it is better than as a two-dose vaccine. more people are getting a booster everyday than getting a first shot. unvaccinated adults are 19 times more likely to be hospitalized and 11 times more likely to die. >> i urge everyone eligible for a vaccine to get them. >> proving testing or be vaccinated. >> even the ones that are like myself believe a forced mandate is absolutely wrong. >> what we've seen from others is a lot of misinformation, half
1:25 am
truths and flat out lies in order to produce an insurrection and we are not having that. >> finally, november 8, fully vaccinated foreigners can enter the country. >> probably news you didn't want to hear, the cdc updated guidelines from the holiday season. outdoor gatherings still best. inside, wear a mask. top of their list, just get vaccinated. >> we've heard about the police in chicago. chicago isn't alone. it is a problem across the united states. a new report says covid has killed more police officers in the last two years than anything
1:26 am
else. >> this was horrible. this did not have to happen. >> with the police force 18 years. >> his wife pleaded to get the vaccine. he remained skeptical. >> i feel like mike did not get vaccinated because he didn't have all the facts. there was a lot of information moving around, moving parts. when that happens, rumors, misinformation, science leaves the picture and it just becomes chatter. it attacked his lungs and made them look like baby swiss cheese. >> across the country, she lost

1:28 am
since the start of the pandemic, more than four times as many officers have died from covid as from gun fire. despite being the first groups having access to the vaccine. >> the right to be vaccinated is an individual right. i firmly believe in that and encourage people do that. >> across the oous, some officers are resisting. in miami, and in san francisco, at least 120 officers will be off the street for a failure to comply. the national police union is encouraging vaccinations but is not in favor of a mandate.
1:29 am
>> the police union is telling officers. watching the battles rage, she hopes this can be a lesson to other officers. >> do you think mike dying has helped other officers? >> yes. to this day, i still get letters and calls and copies of people's vaccination cards in the mailbox that i don't know. >> you hear the idea of other officers and their families, you can understand the amount of impact. the two cars behind me belong to some of the unit that belonged to mike's unit. this hit his department as well but she doesn't want to see mandates forcing officers.
1:30 am
she believes if people can talk and encourage officers but less about mandates forcing them to make decisions. reporting from florida. to new zealand now. it is holding a super saturday event to get people vaccinated. the goal is to vaccinate one in 12 residents in a single day. taking part in the vaxathon to build that support. right now, just over 53% of new zealand's population are vaccinated. in italy, the covid-19 vaccine green pass is needed for all workers. italians think a government mandate like this has no place in health care.
1:31 am
we have the latest from rome. >> italy has become the first western democracy to issue a health pass on covid. starting friday, everyone who pulls a paycheck have to show a green pass to show they are fully vaccinated or have a recent covid test before they go to work. if they don't have it, they can be fined. and employers who don't demand it can face fines. up to 80% of the public are vaccinated. some people have taken to the streets to protest. gathering here in rome to make their voices heard. reporting for cnn, rome. just ahead for us, while the u.s. president is optimistic about his expansive spending package, he is also suggesting some programs may have to be dropped if it is to be passed.
