1:00 am
live from cnn world headquarters in atlanta, welcome to all you watching us here in the united states, canada and around the world. i'm kim brunhuber. this is "cnn newsroom." well, presidents are not kings. the federal judge hands donald trump a big loss in his efforts to keep january 6 documents sealed. in court, a key witness details what kyle rittenhouse told him during a night of shooting and unrest in wisconsin. >> i tell him to walk outside. he said, i had to, i had to
1:01 am
shoot someone. >> and the role fentanyl-laced drugs may have played in the horrific stampede at the texas concert as families struggle to cope. >> we just wanted everybody -- our brother, strong, handsome, beautiful person that he is. >> a man who died trying to save his fiancee. one of the heartbreaking stories emerging. >> announcer: live from cnn center, this is "cnn newsroom" with kim brunhuber. former u.s. president donald trump has suffered a major blow in his fight to keep records from presidency under wraps. a federal judge ruled the house committee investigating the julian assange 6 insurrection should have access to documents from his presidency leading up to and about the capitol riot. now, this could help the house
1:02 am
as it pursues more information from those around trump who have been subpoenaed but haven't yet spoken to the committee. in her ruling, the judge said, quote, the court holds that the public interest lies in permitting not conjoining the combined will of legislative and executive branches to prevent such ooevents from ever occurri again. as of now, the national archives is on track to turnover documents on friday. cnn congressional correspondent ryan nobles explains what they could receive. >> reporter: this is a significant victory for the january 6 committee. they have hungz of documents from the trump administration that happened around the january 6 attack. call logs, visitor logs, includes some of the documents that were created during the trump administration's time in office. and also handwritten notes that the president himself had authored during that time frame.
1:03 am
>> also in a forceful rejection of trump's attempt to withhold records, the judge wrote, presidents are not kings and plaintiff is not president. he retains the right to assert that his records are privileged, but the incumbent president is not constitutionally obliged to honor that assertion. cnn analyst preet bharara reacted to the judge's ruling. >> when a judge speaks like that and uses language that's sort of ringing about the nature of american democracy and that pres presidents are not kings, she's speaking to the parties and the history. that shows how strongly she felt about the matter. >> trump's legal team says it will appeal the ruling. the balance of executive president past and future from the outset was destined to be decided by appellate courts.
1:04 am
president trump remains committed to protecting the office of presidency and will see this through. a probe into the january 6 insurrection issued ten more subpoenas to former trump white house officials. among the latest stephen miller, senior adviser to the former president and kaylee mcany, the former press secretary. they will be asked to turnover documents relevant to the capitol riot probe with lawmakers looking to hold depositions in december. republican congresswoman liz cheney is one of few republicans trying to hold trump responsible for the riot. take a listen. >> we are confronting a domestic threat we have never faced before. a former president, who is attempting to unravel the foundations of our constitutional republic, aided by political leaders who have made themselves willing hostages
1:05 am
to this dangerous and irrational man. political leaders sat silent in the face of false and dangerous claims are aiding the former president who is at war with the rule of law and the constitution. >> arizona republican congressman paul gosar is facing intense backlash for photo shopped video on twitter and instagram. it depicts him king kong woman ocasio-cortez with a sword and swinging two swords at president biden. ♪ and the congressman later tweeted another cartoon in response. the message, it's cartoon,
1:06 am
relax. then he put out a statement which says, in part, the anime is symbolic of policies and is in no way intended to be an attack on ms. cortez or mr. biden. condemnation has been swift and stern mostly from democrats. even the congressman's sister spoke out against the video. here she is. >> this is something i have to openly wonder, does he have to act on it himself before we believe that he is a sociopath? where is the accountability? >> house speaker pelosi says, quote, threats of violence against members of congress and the president of the united states must not be tolerated. other democrats are also condemning the video. >> paul gosar creates this video glorifying violence against one of our colleagues who has already been the subject of death threats, and that's
1:07 am
perfectly okay. >> there is no place for any type of violence or that type of language in the political system and it should not be happening and we should be condemning it. >> democrats have called on house republican leader kevin mccarthy to take taction and so far he said nothing. meanwhile a republican congressman has been targeted with hate-filled voice mail in response to congressman upton's vote in favor of the bipartisan infrastructure bill. >> you're a traitor, [ bleep ], [ bleep ] traitor. that's what you are. i hope you [ bleep ] die and everybody in your family dies you [ bleep ] trash [ bleep ], [ bleep ]. you're stupider than he is and he can't even complete a [ bleep ] sentence, you dumb [ bleep ] traitor. piece of trash. hope you [ bleep ] die, hope everybody in your [ bleep ],
1:08 am
[ bleep ] dies. you piece of [ bleep ], [ bleep ]. traitor. >> just to say your days are numbered. you're a dumb [ bleep ]. >> the threats follow the "up to the minute" postings of another member of congress, marjorie taylor gaethje. she tweeted out the numbers of republican house members who voted for the infrastructure bill writing, quote, these are the 13 republicans who handed over their voting cards to nancy pelosi for take over of infrastructure. she posted their phone numbers. president biden is calling on republicans to quit threatening retaliation against their own colleagues in a conversation with the democratic national committee chair. biden thanked democrats and republicans for passing the infrastructure plan, noting it was something his predecessor was unable to do. >> i hope we can get back to a place where there is more civility in politics. i really mean it.
1:09 am
i've never seen it this way, you know. the republicans who voted in the house of representatives for the infrastructure vote are seeing in the press the other republicans are trying to strip them of their standing in congress, if they're a chair of a committee, trying to strip them of their chairmanship. i've never seen it like this before. it's got to stop. >> president biden will under core the benefits of the infrastructure measure in a visit to baltimore later today. he'll explain how it will pay for upgrades at ports which will strengthen supply chain and prevent disruptions. there are new developments on the u.s./china relations. president joe biden is expected to meet virtually with chinese president xi jinping as early as next week. that is according to a source familiar with the planning of the meeting. but specific details haven't been released yet. now, comes as china said in a statement it is ready to properly manage differences with the u.s.
1:10 am
investigators in texas are now examining the role illegal drugs may have played in the deadly concert tragedy in houston. the wall street journal reports police are looking into whether some of the deaths and the injuries were caused by pills laced with fentanyl. news chief spoke to cnn earlier. >> there were drugs involved. we don't know exactly what they were. we administered lots of narcan. narcan is the medication used to coun coun counselor opioid overdose. >> the investigation is also looking at how the eight people died during the crowd surge. houston's mayor says authorities are looking at everything from the very beginning, all the missteps, gaps and failures and aren't ruling anything out. meanwhile we are learning more about the victims, including 27-year-old who died trying to save his fiancee from the crowd surge.
1:11 am
>> we don't want anything like this ever happen to anyone else, and we just want everybody to remember our brother, a strong, handsome, beautiful person that he is. >> anything that he did, he put everyone before himself, and that's what he did till he died, till his last breath. and i want the world to know that. i want everyone to know that we're confident in my brother's life and he did not deserve to die. >> the houston fire department says three people injured at the festival remain hospitalized with two of them still in critical condition. that includes this 9-year-old boy who is reportedly in a medically induced coma. his family wants us to caught him e.b. he was sitting on his father's shoulders when they got call up in the crowd. e.b. fell and his grandfather says he suffered brain trauma. the nfl has fined the green
1:12 am
bay packers and two of the team's players, aaron rodgers and alan lazard for violating rules. he takes responsibility for misleading people about his vaccination status. back in august he said he was immunized against covid but he was never actually vaccinated and recently tested positive for the virus. he also made misleading comments about covid-19 vaccines and the virus. he returned to the radio show where some of his comments sparked a firestorm. listen to this. >> i made some comments that people might have felt were misleading, and to anybody who felt misled by those comments, i take full responsibility for those comments. i'm an athlete. i'm not an activist, so i'm going to get back to doing what i do best, and that's playing ball, like i shared my opinion.
1:13 am
it wasn't one that was come to frivolously. it involved a lot of study and what i felt like was in my best interest for my body. >> critics say rodgers misleading comments lead to problems surrounding covid misinformation. this alarming study from the kaiser foundation highlights this point. 78% people in the poll said they are unsure of at least one piece of covid-19 misinformation. people believe it contains a micro trip. 21% believe vaccines can change your dna. kaiser surveyed just over 1500 americans and the poll raises serious questions. cnn asked the u.s. surgeon j general to weigh in. >> this is daunting. no question this is a profound champe. it is important to say to everyone out there there is no vaccine that contains a microchip for covid-19, and that the vaccines do not cause
1:14 am
infertility. they do not cause mutations in your dna. there is no science to back any of those claims up. europe's covid surge appears to be going from bad to worse. according to a new report from the world health organization, europe is the only region where covid cases and deaths are trending upward. the region now accounts for 63% of all new cases and more than half of all new deaths. the situation has some countries considering new restrictions. in denmark the government has proposed bringing back covid health passes. remember just two months ago denmark lifted the last of the covid restrictions saying it was no longer a critical threat. meanwhile austria has banned people from hotels and large amounts and officials say the new rules will likely remain in place through christmas. france is leaning on a tougher health pass system and booster shots to help curb cases. starting next monday anyone older than 65 will be required to have a covid booster shot to
1:15 am
remain eligible for their health pass. the government is also opening up eligibility for third shots to anyone over 50 years old. in the uk, england is planning to require vaccinations to for national health service workers workers starting in april. anyone who would refuse to get vaccinate would lose their job. a similar effect takes place for home care workers. scott mclane is in london. scott, vaccine mandates as you know are political in the u.s. how is this new requirement being received in the uk? >> reporter: it is controversial in the uk, but governments across europe are increasingly feeling the pressure to stem the tied of the virus which is becoming quite serious. a few days ago the w.h.o. said europe was the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic. germany has just hit record-high case counts, and just last night french president emanuel macron said case counts were up 40% in
1:16 am
just the past week and hospitalizations are rising quickly as well. it seems in jen, governments, the response to all this is to at the very least keep in place the restrictions that they have already. but in many cases they are tightening them or even adding new restrictions. in france, the president as you mentioned, said there are no plans to get rid of the health pass system which is required for people to get into restaurants and to ride public transit. of course, that health pass shows that you are vaccinated. there are also no plans to scrap mask mandates. mask mandates on public transit and in schools as well. all of this with the aim of trying to get people vaccinated. president macron gave a call of a responsibility for the 6 million french people who remain without any vaccination at all. in austria as you said, the government there tightening restrictions, requiring vaccination for people to get into restaurants and cafes. unless they can prove that they
1:17 am
have natural immunity. again, the aim there is for the government is quite open about it to nudge people toe get people to actually get the vaccine. you mentioned in the uk they are putting pressure on nhs workers, health care workers to get the vaccine if they are front-facing with patients. that will take place by april. now, while there is undoubtedly a worrying trend of cases rising across the continent, there is definitely a noticeable east/west divide. i want to show you say couple graphics that illustrate that point. this is case counts in ukraine, croatia, romania and the uk. you can see general they are high. but as we change slides, keep an eye on that red line of the uk. this is death rates. you can see the uk's is much, much lower than romania, than ukraine, than croatia. in fact, romania and ukraine are -- have hit record highs and
1:18 am
cr croatia seems to be on its way. what is the difference here? the difference is vaccination rates as you can see in the last slide. the uk is far and away ahead of these other countries in getting people vaccinated. romania in particular is dealing with some serious vaccine hesitancy. croatia and ukraine are both tightening restrictions. the restrictions that they have in place at the moment. all the while western countries are moving on to the booster shot as these eastern european countries are simply trying to convince people to get the first two shots in the first place, kim. while things are looking not great across the continent, it's certainly more manageable in countries, predominantly western europe where vaccination rates are much, much higher. >> that's exactly right. scott mclane, thanks so much. still ahead on cnn, a witness details what kyle rittenhouse told him the night he shot three people in wisconsin. stay with us.

1:23 am
protests in kenosha, wisconsin, last summer. on tuesday prosecutors wrapped up their arguments and now the defense is making its case, trying to prove rittenhouse fired? self-defense. cnn's omar jimenez has the report. >> reporter: the next phase moves forward as the defense begins its case, starting with those who were with rittenhouse on august 25th, 2020, before and after his shootings that night, following heavy protests in kenosha, wisconsin. >> he repeats, i just shot someone over and over. and i believe at some point he did say he had to shoot someone. i tell him to walk outside and turn himself in. he had said, i had to, i had to shoot someone. >> reporter: the next witness said rittenhouse even personally reflected on what had just happened. >> do you recall him saying anything? >> he pulled back really hard. his comment was, my god, my life might be over. >> did kyle respond to anything that was said? >> yes.
1:24 am
>> what was that? >> that was that he had to. >> reporter: it was in these moments that kyle rittenhouse shot and killed joseph rosenbaum, the first of two killed that night, and it was those moments that were a large focus of the end of the prosecution's case. rosenbaum was shot four times. once in the left thigh, once in the hand, he suffered a graze wound to his head and then he was shot in the back, the lethal shot. >> gunshot wound is the one that would cause death as a result of the injuries to the lungs and the liver with the hemorrhage and the injury to the organs themselves. >> reporter: the doctor's testimony came with graphic pictures, especially of the gunshot wounds to the head and back of rosenbaum. all the while rittenhouse appeared to be visibly shaken. at times averting his eyes similar to what many jurors why doing as well. prosecutors focused on when rittenhouse fired the four gunshots at rosenbaum and from what position. >> the first gunshots are while
1:25 am
mr. rosenbaum is facing mr. rittenhouse? >> yes. >> and you said at least one of those was intermediate out to 4 feet away? >> yes. >> reporter: then came the graze wound to the head and the shot to the back. >> and is it your opinion to a reasonable degree of medical certainty that the back to front shots to the head and then the kill shot to the back would have been while he was falling or perpendicular to the ground? >> the only way that the trajectories of the gunshot wounds to the right side of the head and back make sense is if he's more horizontal to the ground and that is occurring at the time that the last two gunshot wounds are heard on the video. >> reporter: the defense wanted to underscore how fast this deadly interaction occurred. >> the fourth shot is 76/100 of a second after that. that is how fast the four shots were fired out of my client's gun. and he's -- goes from the furthest, 4 feet, to touching
1:26 am
the gun, correct? >> yes. >> so if i was charging like a bull and diving, that would be consistent? >> it would be. >> reporter: the rifle used by rittenhouse that day was displayed in court both by the prosecution and the defense to give jurors a better idea of the gun's positioning as this unfolded. but prosecutors went back to the first two shots, implying any diving or falling motion from the first shot to the thigh up through the hip wasn't voluntary. >> the injuries you noted would be consistent with falling after being struck in the hip? >> yes. >> reporter: omar jimenez, kenosha, wisconsin. >> you're watching "cnn newsroom." still ahead, a deal on election, goals from cop-26 climate summit when the world hopes to produce all zero emission n cars and va. stay with us.

1:30 am
transportation day at the cop-26 climate summit is expected to bring global progress on electric vehicles. reports say the u.s. and china and germany are resisting. a proposed deal would commit countries to work towards all sales of new cars and vans being zero emission by 2040. meanwhile, prime minister boris johnson is asking them to pull out all the stops to limit global warming to 2.5 degrees celsius above current levels. i understand a draft agreement has been put out. what's in it? >> reporter: that's right, kim. so what we've seen is a draft agreement of some of the final language that this conference
1:31 am
has been building up towards. a couple key points, mostly revolving around 1.5 degrees being the target for limiting average global temperature increase. some interpretations suggest it's a little bit stronger than it was previously. others suggest not as strong as it should be. and the other key point is it does indicate that countries whose commitments are not on target to coming back, to not on target to achieving 1.5, around there, need to come back by the end of 2022 with new tar gets, more ambitious targets. that's still going to be threshed out over the next few days. and what we know at this point is that those commitments, what has been agreed here so far, is simply not sufficient towards achieving that big target of 1.5 degrees. the reason and the reality check comes from a respected project, climate action tracker which closely follows and analyzes individual's countries commitments and actions. it has found at this point in
1:32 am
the crucial conference all that has been decided is still on track toward catastrophic climate change of 2.4 degrees celsius. that is a long way from 1.5. the reason is simple. the science says countries have to start cutting deeply now and not enough have indicated they are willing to do so. here's some more context from one of the report's authors. >> well, with the current pledges, all the things countries propose, we see a roughly stabilization of greenhouse gas emissions until 2030. so they're not going up any more, which is good, because in the past they have always been going up by 1 to 2% per year. with current action they're flat lining until 2030 which is okay, but not good enough. they need to be halved by 2030. so we are emitting twice as much as we should. >> reporter: so, this report illustrates the real world outcomes, the likely real world outcomes of what we already knew. lots of countries come into this conference pledging big long-term commitments taking net
1:33 am
zero carbon around the middle of the century. the science is very clear. without detailed plans, without a willingness to start cutting hard and fast right now, those promises are simply not credible, kim. >> still a big gulf between what's neetd and had what we're doing. phil black, thank you so much. in the coming hours, u.s. vice president kamala harris will sit down with french president emanuel macron in paris. our visit to france is aimed at revitalizing relations between the two countries less than two months after the country's decision to help australia sunk france's deal. it comes after joe biden and macron met on the side lines of the g20 summit. let's head to the french capital where melissa bell is standing by. melissa, these vice-presidential trips are ceremonial. this seems there might be more substantive. take us through the aims of this visit. >> reporter: well, we've seen
1:34 am
that attempt, those attempts over the course of the last few weeks to unruffle ruffled french f feathers over the rou between the united states and australia that had been as president biden himself acknowledged announced in a way that was clumsy, that had lacked grace. the french had taken it very badly, so this visit really about continuing those efforts. first of all, to show that the united states, its oldest alliance, matters to it. there will be all the ceremonies around the world war i armistice day tomorrow. it looks at where concretely they can continue to collaborate and reminding one another that they remain staunch allies. so things like the indo-pacific region and how they can collaborate there, things like the global pandemic as well. but you're right, this time it is much more about
1:35 am
re-establishing the strength of that relationship, although even at a time, kim, when in fact all that has happened goes in the direction of the french president who for a long time has been arguing that europe needs to be less reliant on the united states. he is very much in favor of things like the creation of european defense force, something that a lot of european countries are opposed to and really what he wants is american backing for the idea that a strong european defense force, european army, more strategic independence for europe is not in compatible with its continuing to work with the united states in the context, for instance, of nato. that is the background. of course, there will be all the ceremonies that go with it to remind one another of just how historically strong the bond between the united states and france has been, kim. >> all right. you'll be covering that visit throughout the day. melissa bell, thank you so much. on the border between poland and belarus, thousands of migrants are being used as political pawns in a move some
1:36 am
fear could lead to acts of violence. over the past few weeks, the migrants have set up makeshift camps at the polish border hoping to cross into the european union. many of those are women and children camping out in freezing temperatures, forced to sleep on the ground. poland and the eu accuse president alexander lukashenko of creating the crisis. cnn's fred pleitgen is following the story from berlin. tension at the border. you were doing some reporting at the german border. bring us up to speed. >> reporter: yes, certainly. massive implications across this entire region. you just have to look at the actors who are involved to see just how devastating the situation can get. you obviously have the one side have belarus and its biggest backer which is, of course, russia with its president vladimir putin. you have poland on the other side which is obviously a member of the european union and nato, and both of those organizations have already said that they
1:37 am
fully stand behind poland and the way that poland has been handling this crisis so far. and what we're seeing right now, especially over the past couple of days, kim, is really that situation as you said, really escalate a great deal. for the first time two days ago what happened was a very large group of migrants was sent to the border according to polish authorities, sent there by the belarusian authorities and camped out there. it was the second night the very large camp has been there. the temperatures as you noted -- i was actually monitoring them overnight. they went well below freezing overnight. so devastating situation on the ground there for the people who are camped out there with obviously very little in the way of supplies, nothing in the way of infrastructure. poland does say in the past hours there have been several attempts to try and breach that border. there apparently were two successful attempts to get through the border, but poland did say it turned a lot of people back and detained nine people as well. the polish defense ministry --
1:38 am
defense minister this morning went on polish radio and he there said, yes, the situation remains very difficult. yes, there are still what the poles call attacks on their border. but they do believe that they have the situation under control. they believe they have the forces necessary there to keep the situation under control and they also say that that essentially wall of barbed wire they built is still managing to keep things under control, kim? >> we'll keep watch on the story. thank you. danny finishster is accused of sedition and terrorism. if convicted of sedition he faces 27 years in prison. he was arrested as he tried to leave the country in may. he's being held in the notorious insane prison since then. all right. still to come, cnn is marking its first call to earth day. we'll look at how young forsters
1:39 am
are helping plant a new generation of giant california redwoods. stay with us. i don't just play someone brainy on tv - i'm an actual neuroscientist. and i love the science behind neuriva plus. unlike ordinary memory supplements, neuriva plus fuels six key indimore brain performance?ce. yes, please! neuriva. think bigger.

1:42 am
over the past ten days we've been covering the environmental challenges facing our planet. these issues can sometimes feel vast and overwhelming, but we want to put the big focus right now on solutions and conservation education. today on our call to earth day, cnn is celebrating the people creating a more sustainable future, those who are driving awareness and inspiring action. from hong kong to new delhi, new york to beijing, cnn correspondents across the world will bring you stories throughout the day about extraordinary individuals protecting our planet and about young students who are learning to do the same. and some of those students attend the rainbow school paris,
1:43 am
and that's where our cyril vanier is live. cyril, i know you have some special guests behind you there, so tell us how they are making a difference. >> reporter: good morning, kim, and welcome again to this little corner just outside of paris. this park where dozens of children from the rainbow school, international bilingual students, are learning to engage with nature. now, we're talking about 6 to 9-year-olds here. so there's no talk of climate change, nothing like that. it's really about learning to engage with your immediate environment. so these students here learning to recognize different trees, leaves, insects, these students were on a scavenger hunt just moments ago. these are city kids so they don't interface all that much with the outdoors. they are being taught to engage and understand their immediate environment. this is my favorite workshop right here. let me introduce you. good morning, kids. let's see -- >> good morning. >> reporter: let's see what's
1:44 am
going on. can somebody, somebody explain to me what you are doing at the moment. all right. we've got one raised hand. what are you doing right now? >> we're making a bird house for all the birds to eat. we're putting peanut butter and bird seeds so they can eat for their snack. >> reporter: that was a fantastic explanation. they're making a bird feeder from recycled material. you're seeing the cups, the sec skewers, that's been recycled. the idea is to give back to nature with recycled material so you don't take from nature and you give back to nature so there is going to be food for these feeders in the park and the kids will be taking them back home. let me speak to dorian cliff. dorian, thanks for being with us this morning. >> of course. >> reporter: explain to me why you're doing this this morning for the kids. what is this about? >> this is about giving the kids an opportunity to connect with nature and have these foung dagsal experiences of being able to give back in a way that's
1:45 am
recognizable for themselves. here it's a bird feeder. they're going to feed a few birds in their backyard which is small scale, but something they'll remember much later on. >> reporter: dorian, thanks very much. and thanks to you'll the kids from the rainbow school in paris. kim, changing the word is a big thing when you're 6 to 9 years old. learning to change your immediate environment by staking concrete steps is what they're learning this morning. kim? >> that and trying to learn to get face time in the camera there. that was just too cute. cyril vanier, thank you so much, appreciate it. the san francisco bay area is home to many tech giants including facebook, twitter and google. but centuries ago, the bay area was ruled by a different kind of giant, red woods. cnn's bill weir has more on one organization hoping to bring them back. >> reporter: since they are an all too rare tourist attraction today, it can be hard to believe
1:46 am
giant red woods used to line hundreds of miles of northern california coast. living for more than 2,000 years, as the tallest organisms on earth. now, david malark and his arc angel tree archive are trying to plant a new generation of giants. he takes clippings from the tops of the old skest and largest, s 200 feet tall, back to his lab in michigan. there specialists use a technique called micro propagation to grow them into sapplings. he said from a single sample, a team of scientists can grow a -- an unlimited number of clones. the problem, how to get them all in the ground. it will probably take an army. and that is where these little soldiers come in. they are tree schoolers at the cal hollow school in san francisco.
