1:00 am
hello and welcome to all of you watching us here in the united states, canada and all around the world. i'm kim brunhuber. ahead on "cnn newsroom," damage assessment, that is what high ranking democrats are asking for from intelligence officials after the fbi seized classified documents from donald trump's home. we'll look at the fallout from the search. groo plus a suspected terror attack in jerusalem, a gunman opens wfire, leaving people wounded. and we'll look at the droughts across the u.s. and
1:01 am
europe with live reports from made grid and the cnn "weather cen center". >> live from cnn centre, this is "cnn newsroom" with kim brunhuber. >> we begin with more fallout from the fbi search at donald trump's florida estate. sources now telling cnn that one of the former president's lawyers signed a letter back in june saying there were no more classified information stored at mar-a-lago but of course we learned earlier this week this federal agents recovered 11 sets of classified documents during their search including several marked top secret. meanwhile two high ranking house democrats are now asking intelligence officials for a damage assess themenment of the documents. writing that the former president 's conduct has potentially put our national security at grave risk. all this comes as the fbi is
1:02 am
dealing with what it says is an unpress departmented number of threats against the bureau in the wake of that mar-a-lago search. katelyn polantz is in washington with the latest on the justice department's investigation. >> reporter: two months before the fbi search of mar-a-lago, a lawyer for donald trump attested in a letter to the justice department there were no classified records to be found on the property, cnn learned on saturday. but despite this claim, when investigators seized the boxes this past monday in this criminal investigation, they found in 11 different praise pl records still marked at classified, that includes three levels even ones labeled as the ones that would require the most strenuous provisions to see dress city si -- secrecy. and these new details flush out the time line leading up to the search of mar-a-lago. we learned just earlier this week of the meeting trump's attorneys had in june and a subpoena for the return of the
1:03 am
records before the search. but this letter from trump's lawyer also adds to our understanding of why federal prosecutors made iy have seen n other way to resecure the records than to go to the grounds for themselves on monday. they weren't going to be given back by the president's team, that is much is clear. donald trump and some of his advisers have claimed that he declassified all the records he had at mar-a-lago when he was president. but when you look at what is being obstructed here, obstruction of justice, criminal mishandling of government records, espionage act, classification status of these records at this time might be immaterial. what matters as justice department investigators continue their work is how potentially harmful it was to have these documents out of the control of the federal government for the last year and a half. all of what happens in june with this letter from the lawyer's subpoenas all likely to become important facts if criminal charges were to materialize here
1:04 am
and as investigators try to narrow down who exactly had their hands on these documents. katelyn polantz, cnn, washington. earlier i spoke with a political analyst about just how unprecedented these developments are. here he is. >> before and after the presidential records act of 1978, post-watergate reform, presidents and also members of their family have been accused of taking things that they weren't supposed to take out of the white house when they left office. the normal process is that the archives, national archives, will say where is this, we need that, can we take a look at that. and there is a process of negotiation, back and forth discussion, and they reach an accommodation. that has always been the case until now. this is different in kind and in nature. the archives have tried and tried, they have been subpoenaeded and they can't get the materials back that donald trump took with him. the question is what did he take
1:05 am
them for, what is he going to use them for. this is highly unusual. >> and we'll have more of my discussion with michael coming up tin our next hour. salman rushdie's agent tells the "new york times" that the author started to speak saturday a day after he was stabbed during a new york book event. while rushdie remains in hospital, suspect the appeared in court pleading not guilty to attempted second xree-degree mu and other charges. he will be back in court next friday. rushdie was stabbed in the s stomach, right eye and chest. and condemnation is still pouring in. in iran where an edict calling for rushdie's assassination was called for decades ago, some are celebrating the attack. more from jomana karedsheh. >> reporter: all eyes on iran to
1:06 am
see if there is any official reaction from the attack on friday. but so far, there has been no official reaction. we have heard from the israeli prime minister yair lapid who tweeted his country's condemnation saturday evening and he also blamed iran saying that it was the incitement that has been led by what he described as the extremist regime into iran for decades that has led to this attack. of course it was back in 1989 that tkhomeini at the time who called for the killing of salman rushdie following the publication of his book that was seen as blasphemous, extremely insulting for some muslims, an attack on their prophet and their religion. in the '90s it did appear that
1:07 am
the iranian government at the time was softening its position, that it might be backtracking on t that, but in recent years, we've seen the current supreme li liter -- leader saying that it is still valid. and while we've not had any official government reaction so far, we have seen reaction on social media as well as hardline conservative publications in iran, one newspaper on saturday publishing this column in which they praised the attacker who they described as him deserving thousands of god blesses, that the hands of this warrior as they described him should be kissed for attacking rushdie who
1:08 am
they described as an apolstate. and anothers disturbing headline, a pathway to hell, along with a picture of rushdie on a stretcher. there is also speculation and questions about whether this suspect in the united states has any links to iranian backed groups or extremist groups in iran or elsewhere in the region. lebanese media were reporting t that lebanese citizen, so he is eligible to vote in the country. something that cnn has not been able to independently verify, but cnn reached out to the iranian backed lebanese hezbollah group asking them if they knew anything about the attacker or this attack. and one official saying that all they know about this attack is
1:09 am
what they have seen in the media, that they know nothing about it and that they know nothing about the suspect. jomana karedsheh, cnn, amman. in jerusalem, the gunman who carried out a suspected terror attack wounding eight people on sunday has turned himself into police. at least four u.s. nationals are among those wounded according to israeli media. hamas gold is joining us live from jerusalem. what more can you tell us on the attack and the victims including those americans? >> reporter: we just got confirmation from the u.s. embassy here in jerusalem that american citizens were moonk th among those wounded in this attack. the american edgembassy is not commenting further citing privacy reasons and that they are gathering more information. but they are shocked and saddened by the attack saying they condemned all acts of terrorism and actions that exacerbate tensions. what we know what happened, around 1:30 a.m. local,
1:10 am
overnight, this shooting started taking place at a bus stop/parking lot right outside of the old city walls near one of the main entrances that people use especially to get to the western wall compound and also the mosque. all the holiest sites of jerusalem are through here as well as king david's tomb. and it is a very big popular area not only for religious pilgrimages but also for tourists. we know that the shooter began shooting at a bus where people were boarding and getting off before he fled on foot. we understand that there were eight victims, at least two are still listed as in serious condition including a pregnant woman who had to undergo an emergency c-section because of her condition. as far as we know, both she and the baby are in serious condition but stable. now, as we noted, israeli media is reporting that at least four americans are among those injured, but the u.s. embassy is not confirming on the exact
1:11 am
number of americans injured citing privacy concerns. in the last few hours the suspect has turned himself into police and police say that they have the weapon as well. and a security source tells cnn that the suspect is a palestinian from east jerusalem who holds israeli citizenship. this of course is coming less than a week after those hostilities between israel and the palestinian islamic jihad, militants in gaza that left dozens dead, more than a thousand rockets fired toward israel. but so far we have no indication that this suspect has any connection to any militant groups. >> appreciate the update. thanks so much. more support is being lined up for a proposal to demilitarized the zaporizhzhia nuclear plant, another powerful voice calling for russian groups to get out of the facility. and plus smooth sailing so far for grain ships leaving ukraine, but potential obstacles
1:12 am
looming. we'll have a guest who will talk about that. stay with us.
1:13 am
1:14 am
1:15 am
1:16 am
demilitarize the zaporizhzhia nuclear plant is picking up steam. the grounds came under artillery fire this week prompting calls from the secretary-general and as well as the u.s. and now the chief tweeted that the plant must not be used as part of any military operation. president zelenskyy says the strikes will backfire on russians including those who are correctly involved . here he is. >> translator: there must be a strong reaction, ukrainian diplomats and representatives of partner states will do everything to make sure that new sanctions against russia are necessarily block the russian nuclear industry. and absolutely all officials of a terrorist state as well as those who help them in this blackmail operation with a nuclear power plant must answer in an international court. this is bound to happen. and every russian military officer who either shoots at the
1:17 am
plant or shoots under the cover of the plant must understand that he becomes a special target for our intelligence, for our special services, for our army. >> for more, david mckenzie is joining us from kyiv. let's start there with the threat to the nuclear power plant. what is the latest? >> reporter: the latest is this diplomatic push that you are describing, kim. and the european chief is the latest to weigh in on this. i have to say the reality on the ground doesn't lend itself to a diplomatic solution at this point because that nuclear power plant is right close to several frontlines to the north toward the town of zaporizhzhia, to the west and north across the river dnipro to these ukrainian positions. so is this a very active front line. and of course over the last week or so, we've been hearing from both sides that there have been strikes close or near to those
1:18 am
nuclear reactors which raises the prospect of a strike directly on one of those reactors. and the push from the u.s., european union, of course ukrainians is getting louder, but there hasn't been much response from the russian side at this point. and given the military importance of that zone, that is why the russians took it over in early march, it appears that there is no movement towards lessening the threat to that side which could of course threaten this country and the wider region. kim. >> i'm looking at the wider conflict here, this has become a war of attrition in recent months. where do you see the key developments? >> reporter: the russian leadership had called for rapid advance of course particularly in the east, but you've had this grinding conflict going on since the beginning. and let's look first in the southern theater. i think this is important to
1:19 am
illustrate. you have the ukrainians claiming overnight that they have struck and destroyed or at least damaged the supply lines across the river dnipro to the russian forces that have occupied khe kherson. why is it important? it could potentially mean that the forces cannot get resupplied unless it is through floating options across that river and it gives the ukrainians the opportunity to have this counter offensive that they have been talking about for many weeks now. if they are able to push the russians out ofof kerr hekherso would be a major victory. but by striking the supply lines, they can cut off the russians from behind the frontline positions. and in the east of the country where it is a critical frontline that maybe hasn't been talked about as much lately, you've had both russia and ukraine claiming that they have made gains to the west of the city of donetsk. why is this important?
1:20 am
donetsk is the area that russia took over early in the conflict. if they can push west and north of that city, then they may have the opportunity to take the whole of the next region, one of the key objectives that the kremlin announced at the beginning of this war. but right now, you have ukrainians putting up a very strong defense according to a military expert and the russians vice president been able to inch forward there. so it points to a much longer grinding out situation.presiden forward there. so it points to a much longer grinding out situation. >> appreciate the analysis. thank you so much. one bright spot in ukraine is offering hope for millions going hungry. president zelenskyy sensays 16 ships with grain have left the port. on friday reuters says the first ship that will bring food to africa arrived in ukraine. the grain exports were resumed
1:21 am
after an agreement signed last month in turkey. this is hoped that it will help 47 million worldwide who the food programs say are having trouble putting food on the table because of the war. for more, we're joined by a business development manager at m maxi grain, a brokerage in the international grain trade. she is in london. thanks for being with us. it must be a huge relief to have seen that first ship pulling out of the port in odesa. >> hello, everyone. yeah, as you mentioned for today 16 vessels including one new coming left ukrainian port. and now first vessel loaded in ukrainian port as well. and so it will be really great relief for people starving all over the world. because as war began, ukraine can't supply around 25 million
1:22 am
tons of different grains. so it pushed prices higher, which means that people in countries like afghanistan, syria, north africa, almost all africa countries can't pay extra money for each slice of bread. so since last month after signing agreement between ukraine, turkey and united nations and separate agreement between russia, turkey and the united nation, we hope that supply of ukrainian grain will increase up to 3 million tons per month and the most optimistic of course are up to 5 million tons per month. which means that around 20 million tons which stuck in ukraine from the previous crop and around 45 million tons of new crop will be shipped to ukrainian buyers all over the world. >> yeah, and i mean the
1:23 am
consequences of this as you say can't be overstated. you talk about that grain that still is sort of stuck there. i imagine speed is of essence otherwise it could basically rot where it is. i imagine that is one of the obstacles that they still have to overcome. >> yes, the main obstacles is that they still have not sure about safety of the vessels which they direct to ukraine. it means that insurance level for these investigation vessels will be higher than for other destinations. it is like an extra war insurance. and it leads to increase in cost of freight. but if we compare what ukrainian farmers face today for delivery of ukraif ukrainian grains, stis much cheaper. for example to deliver grain from central part of ukraine to
1:24 am
romania, cost around $200 per metric ton. so even higher than the cost of grain by itself. and for example if we compare to how much it costs for farnlgers to deliver grain to odesa ports, it is five times longer. >> is the main threat the threats of attack or the mines that might still be there? >> both, but mostly yes, it is floating mines. >> okay. there is still the matter of actually getting the grain to ports, the farmers have to deal with obstacles, we're still in a war, how difficult is actually getting the grain to port? >> firstly farnlgfarmers have t harvest the grain and now it is harvesting time for early crops like wheat, barley and grape seeds which is almost down for today and farmers harvest directly -- literally i mean.
1:25 am
and then they have to clean the grains to deliver it to silos. and from silo, you have to deliver it by rails or by trucks to port. which is not the biggest problem. the biggest problem is that russia daily attack railways or important infrastructure facilities. but the main target for them are civilians, the people seacoast. we see daily attack mykolaiv. and you remember that day after signing agreement, they attack odesa port. so this is the main obstacle in delivery. >> and then one of the other challenges, i mean this is a good news story, but we've also seen unfortunately reports of plenty of grain being stolen. how big of a concern is that?
1:26 am
>> usually before the war grain storage all over the country. since the war began, we lost control of around 25% of the ukrainian territory, which means that we lost 25% of our stock. and this for export from previous season, they exclude this grain. and we still don't understand does russia store it or they kept on this territory because we lost any connection with occupied territories. all we know is that we see daily some vessels which load grain in occupied ports mostly in crimea.
1:27 am
and we see how many trucks go from occupied territories like kherson to occupied ports. and around 87 vessels already involved in delivering grain mostly to syria. >> yeah, that is a lot. but still as i say, is this is positive development and certainly a source of hope for millions around the world as that grain starts to move. so we'll keep an eye on that. really appreciate your analysis of this important story. thank you so much. >> thank you. coming up, california faces a stunning drain on its water supply, we'll have details on the governor's multibillion-dollar plan to fix it. plus western europe experiencing above average heat and drought, we'll have details on that ahead. he's feeling it. yep, them too. it's an invigorating rush... ...zapping m millions of germs in seconds. for that one-of-a-kind

1:31 am
welcome back to all of you watching us here in the united states, canada and around the world. i'm kim brunhuber. this is "cnn newsroom." the unprecedented heat has affected millions particularly in california where experts say the state could lose 10% of its water in the next two decadvale. >> reporter: the big part is to build storage space to hold water when it falls here in the winter months and it doesn't go anywhere. and that is pretty of the opposite of what we see here, this is the los angeles river
1:32 am
de designed to channel the water southbound into the pacific ocean. so begin what governor newsom is trying to say here, we don't need to channel water out anymore, we need to build more infrastructure to keep our water supply, hold it during the winter months. so the four main parameters that we have of his plan right here, building 4 million acres of storage space. so you think cisterns, reservoirs, storage tanks. he also is saying that waste water, water that goes into neighborhood drains which would normally travel into channels like where we are standing now into the pacific ocean that water can be recycled as well. final point is desalination, taking saltwater out of ocean water, what israel does so well, out of water from the san francisco bay and using it for drinking water. take a listen to what newsome said on that point. >> this technology is much older
1:33 am
than i. it is much older than each and he have one of you about and the reality is we need to be more creative and we need to be more aggressive in terms of not just promoting this technology, but delivering on its promise, moreover delivering on its potential. >> reporter: so again, creating new water supplies, preserving the water for storage when it falls in the winter months. just take a look at this, we only have a few centimeters of water in the riverbed right now. in the winter months the water level is several meters high, higher than my head. so of course the name of the game according to the governor new infrastructure to keep that water that falls in the winter months. mike valevalerio, cnn, los ange. let's talk more about this with karen maginnis. >> this is not exclusive to california and these drought seasons are very typical, but
1:34 am
what we've seen in recent times is that they occur earlier. they are much more widespread. and it takes a lot more to recover from them. so he's these drought areas, it won't be just one or two rain or snowfall events in the wintertime that will alleviate the situation, it will be much more long term. and typically hot across the south central united states. but for californians, the interior valleys, this is where it will be excessively hot. temperatures here are going to be in the triple digits. but not just 100, 102 degrees. we're looking at 108 degrees sacramento, it is going to be excruciatingly hot. and we're also looking at just the humidities that will be very dry. and so you get a combination like that, and then we look at that fire danger which has been so critical here over the path decade or so, palm springs, a temperature up to 110 degrees.
1:35 am
phoenix is going to be typically hot. average high is 105. it will be within a few degrees of that. and look at redding. sometimes we see it pop up as one of those cities that is so hot. but even the next several days, 111 degrees, that is excessively hot. we are seeing this monsoonal moisture across the interior west. and in utah, we've seen a lot of rainfall there. they are brief but heavy and they can produce the debris floes. take around phoenix, coming up scattered showers and storms. flood watches are out. and that will continue through the workweek as we've got a ridge of high pressure across the west and the east. so in between this monsoonal moisture from the south, and not going to get much heat relief. but maybe as far as some of the isolated areas and drought, that will be of some minor help. kim, back to you. >> thanks so much, karen
1:36 am
maginnis. europe is suffering through its fourth heatwave since june, and it is affecting water supplies. the river thames has dried up and moved five miles downstream and the rhine is at exceptionally low levels. pore tutu portugal's wildfire is under control but not before burning through a geological park. and forces are joining to help battle multiple fires in france. al goodman is joining us from madrid. let's start there, what is the efforts on the efforts to contain the fires? >> reporter: the main fire is around bordeaux. and officials say it is not advancing. there are signs that it might be stabilized. but the worry is dry thunderstorms which could park new fires.
1:37 am
about 1,000 firefighters are on the scene, and they have been joined by 360 from germany, poland, austria and romania along with their equipment. it is not the only fire burning in france, there are others including a big one near brittany. there is a department in the french al thaps that have banne fireworks. 20 times more land have burned this summer due to just a year ago. and the fire that has just gone down, portugal european union nation with the most land pernlg burned as a percentage of its entire territory. the military's unit that has these water bombers to go out and help local officials deployed their planes late saturday night and announced two new fires, one in the north and one in the east. it has basically been months of
1:38 am
low rainfall here in western europe. kim. >> yeah, let's touch more on that and the drought that is hitting hard across western europe. >> reporter: i can't emphasize enough how much the farmers in northern italy are suffering along the poe river, in danger of losing up to 80% of their crops. it has been low rainfall there not just for several months but since last december. in the rhine river that you mentioned, that is a key artery to move grain and chemicals and coal. because the water levels are low, shippers can still move but the rules say that they have to lighten their load. so that increases the cost and reduces the amount of goods that are getting to where they are going, a supply chain interruption. the kinds of things we're seeing the uk having its hottest july in 80 years, spain here having its hottest july in 60 years. all of these affects the fires,
1:39 am
the drought a result of that. >> absolutely. thanks so much, al goodman in madrid. a tropical storm has been lashing japan bringing heavy rain and winds after making landfall saturday in central japan. hor more than 40,000 are under evacuation orders. and there are alerts for possible landslides, flooding and high waves. new video into cnn captured a loud boom in utah on saturday. the state's governor and the national weather service says that it was likely caused by a meteor hitting the atmosphere. one video from the ski resort web camera captured it streaking across the sky. incredible. still ahead, sweeping

1:43 am
the zu.s. is just a pen stroke away from some of the biggest changes to medicare in nearly two decades. >>s motion is adopted. >> changes are part of the landmark climate tax and health care bill that the house of representatives passed on friday that is headed for joe biden's desk. health provisions will allow medicare to negotiate the price of certain prescription drugs for the first time. it also limits the growth of drug costs and caps how much medicare enrowill have to pay f certain drugs including insulin.
1:44 am
and they say it will tackle inflation. >> reducing costs this medicare reduces the deficit. and then we are helping on the inflation rate as well. so in addition to lower costs for consumers, we're also lowering costs to the federal balance sheet. both are important at this moment. >> while the bill marks a landmark achievement for democrats, it is much narrower than some had hoped. it only helps seniors and those with disabilities enrolled in medicare. and caps on insulin costs only apply to medicare and not to private insurance, that is due to rules democrats had to rely on to get the bill passed in the senate. joining me now is alice chen, an associate professor and vice dean for research at the usc school of public policy.
1:45 am
she is joining me from los angeles. thanks so much for being here with us. so president biden called this game-changing for order finary folks. is he right or do we have any way of actually knowing that yet? >> the policy does help cap out of pocket spending in many areas, especially for medicare patients. there is the cap on insulin, there is the cap on, you know, out of pocket spending at $2,000. so for sure there will be some positive effects that come from the bill. game-changing, that i don't know quite yet. >> so we've gone through the general highlights of this here, but from your perspective, who exactly will benefit most from this and how? >> you know, there is a lot of different players involved here. the hope i think is that we'll have drug-spending reductions and that will benefit the public. though there is a lot of downstream effects that are not yet known.
1:46 am
for example, we might even have higher drug prices come out of this sort of as an incentive from this policy that i can talk more about. so i think that the overall effects are really quite mixed at this point in time. >> certainly older people perhaps who are on very expensive medications, you know, like for m.s. or cancer medications, things like that, will that be helping them a lot here? >> you know, it is a great point. i think the out of pocket cap will definitely help those patients. they have a lot of drug spending. and so it will help them with their costs and access to medications. in terms of overall drug spending though and innovation in particular which i think is the big issue here, how is that going to effect future drugs for patients, that is i think a big question to be answered. >> and we keep talking about the caps and certainly one of the most significant ones is capping the amgtount diabetics enrolledn
1:47 am
medicare will spend on insulin at $35 a month. so that is significant. but with diabetes being a growing problem here in the u.s., democrats hoped to do more to extend it to everybody, not just people on medicare. how big a missed opportunity was that? >> you know, negotiating prices beyond the public sector has historically been very difficult. so certainly reducing prices across the board is a missed opportunity. but something historically that we don't do very much of. >> certainly not with republicans so recalcitrant on this and not voting at all for this. now, this is meant to help curb inflation, though if it does so, it would only do it i guess indirectly and likely only years from now. in the meantime health care costs which unlike many other costs that we've seen, groceries and everything else, energy, you
1:48 am
know, health care costs haven't really been skyrocketing due to inflation, but they could soon be set to go up later this year. so patients could see big price increases due to inflation coming up. how big a worry is that? >> you know, that is an area that i don't know really know too much about in terms of the relationship between inflation and health care costs. it is difficult to predict. we have seen health care spending rising over time. there have been new technologies being developed, new drugs being developed that have improved the way that we treat patients and diseases, so that contributes to that increasing health care spending, the aging population, all these things are bigger factors potentially than inflation itself. >> interesting. and certainly this will have impacts going on for years to come. will it take that long for people to sort of realize the benefits from this in their
1:49 am
pocketbooks? >> you know, some of these benefits will be immediate. for certain patients, for a certain subset of patients. but i think that the really important thing to just keep in mind here is there is this longer term consequence of how does this affect drug innovation and incentives we have given innovators to develop new drugs. in some sense, when you reduce revenues for drug innovators, local be fewer drugs that are being developed undoubtedly. and the question is how many fewer life-saving drugs will we be seeing for sort of the level of expenditure, drug expenditure reduction that we'll be experiencing. so it really is a double-edged sword here that we're trying to balance between reducing costs for patients while also making sure that drug innovation continues to develop. >> yeah, absolutely. really appreciate your insights on this, alice chen, thanks so much. >> thank you. >> we'll be right back. a bluebey protein pancakes
