3:01 am
states across the country to reach those still unvaccinated and convince them to roll up their sleeves. >> we're going to take you to the meat market that's serving up candy corn rat wurss. >> blah. >> i'm with you on that one. how does it test? we'll find out. we're thrilled to have you bright and early this sunday, october 17th. thank you so much for waking up with us. >> let's start with what we are really watching this morning, this kidnapping of 17 american missionaries in haiti, north of port-au-prince. >> a source tells cnn the group was abducted by gang members. the missionaries are affiliated with an ohio organization called
3:02 am
christian aid ministries. let's get to cnn's matt rivers. matt, reportedly, these folks were on a bus, and they had just left an orphanage. wha what else do we know about what happened? >> reporter: yeah. we were on the phone with a source of ours, basically late into the evening yesterday, trying to get a sense of what's happening here and what the latest information that we have and the source in the haitian security forces stressed to us this is an ongoing situation and we'll learn more this morning, hopefully, the numbers we have right now, 17 american missionaries as you mentioned, 14 of whom we're told are adults, three of whom we are told are under 18 years old, we don't know specific ages at this point, and you were right, they were there doing missionary work in haiti. the group had apparently left the orphanage where they were visiting and they were on their way to another part of haiti, a small village north of the capital port-au-prince, traveling through port-au-prince, when they were
3:03 am
abducted by gang members in the city and, you know, strikingly, according to the "washington post," one of the missionaries posted in a whatsapp group a call for help as this was happening, allegedly saying, please pray for us, we are being held hostage, they kidnapped our driver, pray, pray, pray, we don't know where they are taking us. and that's basically all we know at this point. i can tell you that haitian security forces very much involved here right now, knowing how much attention 17 americans now being held hostage in haiti is going to bring on the security situation there. that said, the number of kidnappings in haiti that we have seen since the beginning of this year generally speaking have skyrocketed. according to one nonprofit who tracks these kinds of things in port-au-prince, they released data this month before the latest kidnapping and say at least 628 kidnappings since january 1st, a 300% increase in
3:04 am
kidnappings since july, 29 of the people who are kidnapped were foreigners and again that data comes from before this latest incident which is certainly something the biden administration, the state department says they're aware of it, though they're not confirming this has happened yet, this is something on everybody's minds in washington, d.c., as we go through the day today. >> no question about that. keep us posted on the latest. matt rivers, thank you so much. we should update you on the status of former president bill clinton. he's expected to be releed from a california hospital some time this morning. >> for five days doctors have been be treating the 75-year-old former commander in chief for a serious blood infection. here is natasha chen. >> reporter: former president bill clinton is expected to be discharged from the hospital on sunday after having spent five nights here at uc irvine medical center for a urinary tract infection that seeped into the blood stream.
3:05 am
he checked in here initially on tuesday when he started feeling extremely fatigued. he was here in southern california for a private event for his foundation. on saturday evening his spokesperson released a statement on twitter saying in part, he is in great spirits and has been spending time with family, catching up with friends and watching college football. he's deeply grateful for the excellent care he continues to receive and thankful to the many well wishers who have sent kind words to him and his family. he's looking forward to getting home very soon. and among those well wishers, we're told from a source familiar with the situation, telling our colleague jamie gangle, he's received phone calls on saturday from vice president kamala harris, former president george w. bush, and his own vice president al gore. he also spoke to president biden on friday. doctors and staff say that he's been able to get up and walk around and, in fact, according to this source telling jamie gangel, the staff had to tell him to slow down. we've also seen secretary hillary clinton and daughter
3:06 am
chelsea clinton visiting him on saturday, spending some time here in the hospital. again, he has been staying this long because of the iv antibiotics treatment which can take three to five days to complete and doctors and staff say it's very important to have that completed before he gets back on a plane to go home. back to you. >> natasha chen, thank you so much. pivoting to politics and the subpoena showdown on capitol hill. the committee investigating the january 6th insurrection is planning to vote this week on criminal contempt charges against trump loyalist steve bannon. >> banon refusing to comply with a subpoena from the committee and claims he can't testify or provide documents because former president trump is covered by executive privilege. legal experts dispute that, though. let's bring in cnn congressional reporter daniella diaz. talk to us about what's expected this week in terms of how this is going to play out and good morning.
3:07 am
>> good morning christi, boris. it's as you said, christi, the committee that is investigating the january 6 capitol attack is going to hold, they say, this trump ally, steve bannon, a former white house aide n criminal contempt for his refusal to comply with their subpoena. banon was schedule to meet with the committee on thursday, but he didn't show and his lawyer says that the -- wrote to the panel and said his client would not provide testimony or documents until the committee reached an agreement with former president donald trump over executive privilege or a court weighed in on the matter. of course, all of this despite the fact that bannon was not in the white house or working at the white house the day that capitol attack happened on january 6th. what happens next? well the committee is going to hold a meeting on tuesday, looking forward to next week, where they will vote on holding bannon in criminal contempt. once that happens it goes to a full house vote. now remember, democrats are in the majority, so this is likely to pass. once the full house votes on
3:08 am
this, then it goes to the justice department where they will make their determinations for prosecuting. now, any individual who is found liable for contempt of congress is then guilty of a crime that may result in a fine or up to 12 months of imprisonment. i really want to stress, guys, that the likelihood of this process being invoked is low. this rarely leads to jail time. in fact, this is an incredibly unique process. the last time this happened was during the reagan administration. this is unique, but bottom line, it's a message that committee is trying to send to all the witnesses, all the people they subpoenaed, to comply with this investigation that if they don't comply, they're going to move forward with criminal contempt and take the steps needed to make sure that they comply with this investigation, that the congress, the biden administration, is taking incredibly seriously. boris, christi? >> let's talk about house lawmakers returning this week with other major items on their
3:09 am
to-do list. democrats still divided over the president's economic plans. what have you learned about the strategy for trying to really salvage that agenda? >> that's exactly right. but the thing is there's still time. there's a new self-imposed deadline of october 31st to try to pass both this bipartisan infrastructure bill that has stalled in the house because progressives operately want to vote on a different legislation, the economic bill, set for $3.5 trillion, but two moderate democratic senators are holding it up, kyrsten sinema and joe manchin. that's what democrats are working on. democratic leaders are working on. they're going to try to figure out before october 31st what krysten sinema and joe manchin want. however there are a lot of sticking points they have to work out these next couple weeks, especially this week when they come back, it's crunch time before october 31st. they are trying to figure out climate provisions. there is a climate provision in the currently written bill, $3.5
3:10 am
trillion bill, christi and boris, that says that they need to slash greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 that manchin does not agree with. he comes from a coal state. he's from west virginia. he says he listens to his constituents so that's what's going on here. bottom line, the bickering is happening openly. on friday, bernie sanders put an op-ed in manchin's hometown newspaper, touting this bill. lots of open discussions happening with moderates and progressives as they try to figure out how they're going to pass these bills before october 31st. >> daniella diaz, great job wrapping it up for us, thank you so much. cnn political analyst julien zell zer with us now. it's good to see you again. i feel like it's been a while. terry mcauliffe -- i'm sorry, i want to start with steve bannon. based on what you heard daniella talking about, what does history tell us about whether we will
3:11 am
hear from bannon? >> well, the history suggests we won't or we'll just hear what bannon wants to say, meaning he is willing to wait out this process where the odds are unlikely to result in any kind of big punishment and this is a team, the former president's allies, that doesn't feel shame from these kinds of investigations. as we saw with the whole impeachment process, figures around the former president, including bannon, are more than willing to challenge congressional oversight and not say anything. >> so i want to move to what's happening in virginia right now with the gubernatorial race. terry mcauliffe and glen youngken. we've had people say what happens in the virginia race is going to happen in not just 2022 but 2024. it seems the slogan for terry mcauliffe is stop trumpism.
3:12 am
he was on with jim acosta last night on cnn and here's what he had to say about the ramifications of the virginia election. >> donald trump will use this as a major victory for himself to help himself for the 2022 midterms and this will be the kickoff for his 2024 race. literally, jim, he has endorsed glen youngkin, not one, two, three, four, six times. and youngkin is a trump wannabe. it's not what we want. we have to stop donald trump. we don't want him back again. >> so does that argument we don't want trump or a trump wannabe as he said, is that enough to move mountains in a race? if it doesn't, what is your take on what happens in the future? >> well, it's not clear. i mean off year elections and special elections can rarely have the significance people give them. they don't reveal where the parties are going, but it's clear that mcauliffe is trying
3:13 am
to nationalize his own race and connect the republican opponent to president trump. i don't know if that will work, however. local still matters a lot, and this is a close race where there's many other factors at play. >> i want to look at a great article that you wrote for cnn.com and i want to pull some of that so we can understand what you're talking about here and this involves this election. you say the heightened scrutiny surrounding the virginia race is in large part due to the challenges president joe biden has faced in the past month sagging poll numbers, stalled legislation, have raised concern about the president's standing and the enthusiasm and support democrats will be able to drum up going into the 2022 midterm elections. the former governor told jim as we said that he's going to be out campaigning with the president soon, that president biden is going to come out for terry mcauliffe, but compare and contrast for me, if you will, the endorsement of president
3:14 am
biden versus the endorsement of president trump at this moment? >> well, you know, i think within the republican electorate that endorsement of the former president has the potential to energize support for a candidate to have supporters see a candidate as something bigger than they did before, as part of a movement, trummism, so to speak, whereas i'm not sure president biden's endorsement has the same weight right now because he's at a moment where there are more problems, where his legislation is stalled, and we see the approval ratings not quite as strong. it could be in this case that the former president has more of an impact with that endorsement. >> julien zelizer we appreciate you taking time for us, thank you so much. >> thank you. right now, a manhunt is under way for a gunman who shot

we are 19 minutes past the hour. right now a manhunt is under way in houston for someone who ambushed three deputies outside of a bar early saturday morning. >> one deputy was shot and killed, two others were wounded in the attack. here's cnn's jean casarez. >> reporter: at a houston sports bar in the parking lot, deputies were called to that parking lot because of something that was going on. they believed it was a robbery. they thought they had the person that was responsible. they were in the midst of arresting the person. the person was on the ground. they were right there. all of a sudden we are told
3:20 am
someone came from around the car with an ar-15 assault rifle and began shooting at the deputies. one was shot in the back. the other shot, who has succumbed to the injuries, and then another deputy came out because of hearing what was happening and was shot in the leg with multiple leg froours. we know the identities of these officers and we want to show you all of them. first of all kareem atkins, he was 30 years old, he had just got back from paternity leave. he leaves a wife and a 2-month-old baby. darryl garrett, he is 28 years old. he was shot in the back. he is now in the intensive care unit. and finally juqaim barthen, 26 years old, he has been a member of the force since 2019. now these officers, they worked together, they knew each other, they were buddies, we are told. i want you to listen to how the constable mark herman talks

3:22 am
he also commemorated the officers who protected the capitol during the january 6th riots. >> particularly appropriate today, is here nine months ago, your brothers and sisters thwarted an unconstitutional and fundamentally attack on our nation's values and votes. because of you democracy survived. >> a major moment in court in georgia expected tomorrow, as jury selection is set to begin in the trial of three men accused of killing ahmaud arbery. arbery, who was unarmed, was murdered in february of last year when he was jogging in pr brunswick, georgia. greg my mcmichael and his son are facing felony murder charges and aggravated assault. a third man who recorded the incident is charged with murder.
3:23 am
all have pled not guilty. embattled attorney alex murdaugh is back in south carolina as we're learning of a new twist in the bizarre legal scandal swirling around him. >> murdaugh was arrested in orlando, now charged with fraud, according to an affidavit murdaugh coordinated with the family of his long-time housekeeper to, quote, sue himself to get an insurance settlement with the intention of giving the money to the family for funeral expenses and compensation. ultimately more than $4 million were paid out to the family of gloria satterfield but the family says they never saw a penny. here's cnn's nadya ramiro. >> reporter: christi and boris, mort we learn about alex murdaugh the more questions we seem to have. we know that he was arrested in orlando, florida, on thursday, charges stemming to the settlement mun that was supposed to go to the family of his late maid, gloria satterfield worked for the family for some 20 years
3:24 am
and she died in 2018. alex murdaugh said she tripped on the family's dogs, went stumbling down the stairs and fell to her death. there was never an autopsy done on her body and now there's an investigation into her death. but the family was supposed to receive about a $4 million settlement. they say they never saw a dime. >> alex did not act alone in making this happen. he certainly needed help and the help came from those who also participated in the settlement, so we filed lawsuits virtually against anybody who touched that money, anybody who participated in those settlements, and it's by and through those lawsuits we intend to make our clients whole again. >> reporter: now alex murdaugh was in orlando at a drug treatment facility. he said that he had an opioid addiction and just the day after, he told police that he hired a man, a former client, to shoot him, shoot him in the head so he would die, so the insurance money, a multimillion-dollar settlement would go to his surviving son.
3:25 am
the scheme didn't work when murdaugh survived. well, now he's still facing charges connected to the settlement money, the satterfields, his former maid, and now insurance fraud charges because of that botched attempt to have himself killed, and his law firm is looking into allegations that he might have stolen be money from them or misappropriated funds. all of these claims and allegations surrounding alex murdaugh, suspicion and mystery as well. boris and christi. >> thank you, nadya. coming up, some, but not all health experts are urging those who got a johnson & johnson covid vaccine to get a booster shot as soon as it's available. we'll explain the discrepancy next. ♪ ready for subway's eat fresh refresh™? that's the new and improved italian b.m.t.®, with new artisan italian bread,
