1:00 am
. welcome do to all of you watching us in the united states, canada and around the world. the u.s. justice department releasing the document that led to the fbi search of former president trump's private home. what it revealed about the classified files he was keeping there. plus, the zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant is reconnected to the ukrainian power grid. and china's climate change
1:01 am
goals are put to a test. live from cnn center, this is "cnn newsroom," with kim br brunhuber. we're getting our clearest look yet into the u.s. justice department's investigation into classified documents kept a former president trump's mar-a-lago resort. the affidavit to obtain a search warrant details what they expected to find, including taking national security materials as well as items about obstruction. we have more on the key take aways from the unsealed
1:02 am
document. >> reporter: now public, a heavily-redacted version of the affidavit that led to the fbi search at former president donald trump's mar-a-lago home. in it, shocking new details. the fbi telling a judge that there was probable cause to br br bl believe that additional documents remain at the premises, and evidence of obstruction would be found at the premises. the affidavit also revealing startling details about improperly-handled details marked with the highest levels of security clearance. >> it's just, it's really, re really bad. >> reporter: this is a classification designed to protect people working around
1:03 am
the world for the u.s. government. 184 document also unique classification markings. 67 marked as confidential, 92 marked as secret and 25 marked top secret. >> the top secret stuff and compartmental can get people killed. it is completely alarming. nobody down there except, well not even trump anylonger anylon clearance at all. >> reporter: prosecutors explaining in their legal memo to the judge information in the affidavit could be used to identify many if not all of these witnesses. if witnesses' identities are exposed, they could be subjected to harms, including retaliation, intimidation or harassment and even threats to their physical safety. we're also learning new insights as to what led to the
1:04 am
investigation in the first place. the national archives made a criminal referral to the doj in february saying there was significant concern after finding the boxes retrieved by the archives contained highly-classified records intermixed with other records and not properly identify, this leading the fbi and doj to launch their own investigation. and ultimately the search of mar-a-lago. trump leaning in to it and calling it a subterfuge by the fbi. they have reviewed a number of civilian witnesses as part of the investigation and sources tell me that the fbi's interviewed former and current trump aides which helps explain why tfbi believed there was
1:05 am
classified information at mar-a-lago which is why they took the step to issue the search warrant and they took away 11 sets of documents marked as classified after the search warrant was executed. pamela brown, washington. >> donald trump isn't the only one defending his actions in the wake of the fbi raid on mar-a-lago. his allies have been standing behind him and lash being out at his critics. >> my father has worked so collaboratively with them for months. in fact the lawyer that's been working on this was totally shocked. it's like what we thought about the guess tau poe. >> do i know that the boxes that they took from mar-a-lago, that they won't put things in those boxes to entrap him? how do we know they will be honest with us? >> earlier i spoke with areva martin, and she weighed in.
1:06 am
>> what we're hearing from a lot of republicans is that he somehow declassified all of these documents and implicit in their arguments is that because he engaged in these broad kale declassifications is that the documents belonged to him. we know donald trump had the idea that government property was his property and he had the authority to do whatever he wanted include handling them in such a negligent and cavalier way. we don't know when he made those notations on the documents. what we do know is that surveillance tape was turned over to the department of justice and that they saw people going in and out of the storage facility. they saw boxes of the documents being stuffed into containers. and there was lots of concerns about how safe at all these
1:07 am
documents were. we don't even know if duplicates were made, photocopies were made, pictures were taken f the documents were uploaded onto some sort of computer system. there's so much we don't know, but what we did learn today, kim s that kim, is that donald trump removed documents that he was not authorized to do so and remained in possession of them almost 18 months after he level the white house. >> and his lawyers responded to a judge's request that he elaborate on his request that a court appoint a special master to oversee the review of that evidence. what if anything do we learn from that? >> we learn that the legal team that donald trump hired to file that motion is incredibly incompetent. the documents that they filed, first of all , it's the wrong court, before the wrong judge,
1:08 am
issues with the service of the filing that was made by these attorneys, and theven this dona trump-appointed judge said look, demonstrate to me that i even have the legal jurisdiction to make a ruling, to make a determination consistent with what was requested in that motion. so it is very clear that he is having a difficult time finding competent counsel since he has left the white house. >> that was cnn legal analyst, areva martin. and can you head to for a deeper dive into what the affidavit does and doesn't say. and it breaks it down into easy to understand language. u.s. stock markets ended the week in negative territory. that was after investors got a warning about inflation from the federal reserve chairman. the dow jones closed down some
1:09 am
3%. the s&p fell more than 3%. the nasdaq closed nearly 4% lower. all three indeces were down about 4% for the week. protesters in the uk say people will die this winter because they won't be able to heat their homes. >> whose streets? >> our streets y. >> the country's energy regulator has approve add huge price hike starting in october. average household bills could climb to more than $4,000 a year. cnn's scott mcclain has more from london. >> reporter: well, the steep rise in energy prices is not by any stretch unique to the uk. it is a huge problem across europe. france and yaerm are reporting record-high electric prices and ministers are now planning to convene an emergency meeting to discuss what to do about the
1:10 am
newfound energy war with russia. electric and gas will rise by 80%. it is now almost three times what it was a year ago. now this price cap is really a cap on profits that companies can take above the wholesale price of gas and electricity. for the average british family with average energy usage, it means about $350 u.s. is spent per month on gas and electric, which is more than 10% median of the income. the reason that prices are going up is that post covid the economy bounced back quicker than expected, creating more demand and because of cuts in russian gas exports to europe, which are down some 77%, compared to the same time last year. the head of the british energy regulator tried to put all this in context like this. >> when i look at the prices in
1:11 am
winter they're already 15 times what they normally are f that wto happen in petrol, it would cost us more to fill up our car. we do need to reflect that cost. >> this is all likely to put major pressure on not only the caretaker prime minister boris johnson who has already announced a series of measures meant to ease household budgets, but also on his successor who polls indicate will likely be liz truss. it has so far been modest and nonspecific. she is pledging to cut taxes and increase domestic oil production, something that may help in the long run but certainly not right away. scott mcclain, cnn, london. bearing the victims of war. just ahead, how cities that were

the scenes of atrocities in the earl days of war still suffer with grief. a look ahead at why the french president is praising algeria. stay with us. yep, them too. it's an invigorating rush... ...zapping millions of germs in seconds. for that one-of-a-kind whoa... ...which leaves you feeling... ahhhhhhh listerine. feel the whoa!

1:16 am
ukraine appears to have dodged a bullet in the latest incident involving its zaporizhzhia nuclear plant. the facility is now back online and reconnected to ukraine's power grid. the plant lost the connection on thursday after fires damage add k a key power line. that created fears of a nuclear accident. president zelenskyy later warned the situation will be back to square one if the plant is disconnected again. here he is. >> translator: i want to emphasize that the situation remains very risky and dangerous. any repeat of yesterday's event, that is any disconnection of the
1:17 am
plant from the grid, any actions by russia that could trigger the shut down of the plant could put the plant one step away from nuclear disaster. >> we're joined from london. let's the latest? >> reporter: well, as they laid out there, the nuclear plant may have been reconnected to the grid, we saw the second power unit reconnected late yesterday evening in ukraine. but there is still real concern over the security situation around the plant. it is of course a precarious frontline falling under russian control. there have been accusations from both sides, the ukraine government accusing russia of holding the power plant as hostage, even accusing russian armed services of stealing military hardware. knowing that the ukrainian forces could not strike the
1:18 am
plant due to fears of a nuclear accident. it is increasingly difficult to verify the situation on the ground. there have been repeated calls by the united nations for its nuclear watchdog, iaea to be granted access to the plant to assess the safety of the plant and the situation on the ground. we heard yesterday from the russian foreign ministry spokesperson saying that the russian federation will do everything it can to facilitate such action, but we heard this sort of rhetoric from the russian government time and time again with little to no concrete steps actually being taken to ensure such access to the nuclear power plant. and as you heard from president zelenskyy, this really was a worrying situation, moments away from a potential nuclear accident. and that risk that is correct threat of a further nuclear accident continues to persist. so there is real concern from
1:19 am
the international community about the impact this could have, not only on ukraine and the situation there, but obviously for the european continent as a whole. >> still a very precarious situation. and on the positive front, good news about the amount of grain that's been exported from ukraine, what more can you tiel us there? >> reporter: it really is a milestone according to zelenskyy, some 1 million tons have been exported from ukraine's southern black seaports over the last month, and this is all part of the black sea grain initiative deal, which was brokered by turkey and the united nations, with both representatives from ukraine and russia present in order to secure the safe passage through the black sea, through the turkish straits and onward to the global market. this deal was off to a rocky
1:20 am
start. we saw the attack on odesa just a day after it was signed. just yesterday, another maritime corridor was established and opened by the joint coordination with the hope of shortening the transit time for exports from ukraine onwards to the global market. and that will help vulnerable nations most dependent on ukraine's grain exports, and there is hope that has been expressed by the turkish government, bit uni by the unit nations, that this could lay the ground work for further talks between russia and ukraine. >> that impact huge on millions. thank you so much. u.n. human rights office estimates nearly 5,000 ukrainians have been killed
1:21 am
during the war. cnn's david mckinzie takes a closer look at how ukrainians are reeling from the impact of past horrors and bracing for new ones. i want to give you a warning, the images in this report are graphic. ♪ ♪ >> reporter: in bucha, they lived in peace, had families and names, but they died in a war that no one here wanted. behind each number, an unknown victim. ♪ ♪ a life worthy of the father's prayer. each person had their own life, and each had one and only one, he says. it's not just bodies that we are burying. for us, these are people who lived once. people to whom the russians brought suffering and death.
1:22 am
bucha is now synonymous with the horrors and brutality of russia's war of choice. when the army retreated, their burnt-out tanks were cleared. bucha seems almost normal now. almost, but not. not here, not anywhere in ukraine. because they are still discovering the dead. a police forensic team gathers etched at a shallow grave. they say a man was shot as he fled. they found more than 1300 bodies in greater kyiv alone. everything chainenged on februa 24th says kyiv's police chief, they invaded our country and star started killing people. you never expect such cruelty.
1:23 am
the cruelty, the sheer loss is hard to understand. this is where the shots were fired he says and where the car was on fire. his family, like others, tried to flee the russian advance. they came to bucha from ukraine's war in the east. they were happy here. they were inseparable. the boys a joy for their father. but, as they escaped bucha, he says the russian armored vehicle struck their car again and again. everyone died. only alexander lived. my oldest would have been 10. my youngest 5, he says. it's very hard. justice must be restored.
1:24 am
everything must be done to destroy the russians, to destroy the nation completely. probably, you can't say that. but i want this whole nation to not exist at all. so that they would not be so much grief. so much grief, too much for any nation to bear in a war that still shows no end. david mckenzie, cnn, bucha, ukraine. >> a huge symbol of the former soviet empire that once included the baltic republic of latvia has been demolished. a 260-foot tall monument was toppled and it was to commemorate victory over nazis.
1:25 am
latvia passed a law in june to allow dismantling of symbols such as this. the algerian government is being praised for stepping up gas exports to europe. emmanuel macron said the added supply of algerian gas will help european countries to meet energy needs without relying on russian gas. >> reporter: the relationship with algeria has always been cordial. france and other countries need the precious supplies that algeria has in abundance. as he left a cemetery, emmanuel macron had to speak to the issue of natural gas even ahead of the visit, they had been tamping
1:26 am
down speculation that a deal had been made. >> translator: there are companies much more dependent on gas, and in particular russian gas, this is where we need to make a collective effort. this is not just about france. so that is why we're not at all in competition with italy. i thank algeria for increasing the volumes that pass through the pipeline, because the pipeline is not full. there is a margin of increase, and we can increase it a little more than 50% of the capacity in use today. >> reporter: the focus has been much more about the fact that this is a visit they hope that will finally mind the relationships that have been so fraught ever since the french colonial period, ever since the algerian war for independence to look at the historical questions and find some type of understanding about what went on in order that some reconciliation can take place.
1:27 am
what was particular about this attempt, it came in context of course of the desperately-needed gas supplies for european leaders and where france is looking to algeria as a country it needs in order to look ahead. that of course required looking also at the past. melissa bell, cnn, paris. still ahead, the improperly stored, highly classified documents. and donald trump has described those documents as his personal property. look at why it's a typical reaction from the former president and why it could compound his legal problems. stay with us. ase or ulcerative colitis symptoms are stopping you in your tracks... choose stelara® from the start... and move toward relief after the first dose... with injections every two months. stelara® may increase your risk of infections, some serious, and cancer.

cla 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." more on the top story, the affidavit that led to the search warrant on mar-a-lago. it shows that the fbi requested the search after finding 184 classified documents in box recovered from trump in january. the document goes on to say that the fbi believed highly sensitive national security documents hadn't been turned over yet. in a friday night court filing, trump's team reiterated their request for a special master. they cited the affidavit, saying
1:32 am
its release raised more questions than answers. and donald trump insists he did nothing wrong when it comes to the troves of presidential documents he took to mar-a-lago. he's repeatedly referred to those papers as his personal property. and as tom foreman reports, it was a predictable response. >> reporter: they illegally raided my home and took things that should not have been taken. my top secret documents, mine. from the get-go. the former president has heavily implied the fbi seizure was not to protect public records but to plunder his private property. and allies have rushed to his side. >> every damn thing they do is intended to weaken the republican party. >> reporter: but if trump had a legal or legitimate right to hang onto documents and interin intermingle them with other
1:33 am
papers, why was that not made clear before it reached this point? >> i can't think of a good reason where everybody says i understand why the former president would take this incredibly classified information home with him. >> i'm going to bomb the [ bleep ] out of them. i don't care. >> reporter: he has a long history of making everything about him. >> i will build a great, great wall. >> reporter: and laying personal claim to public assets, for example, repeatedly talking about "my generals", "my military". >> my generals are going to keep us so safe. >> my generals and my military. >> reporter: some people close to the armed forces pushed back. >> our defense system belongs to the country. and it's not the president's military. it's the military of the united states of america. >> reporter: but this tendency has appeared time and again, on the campaign control. >> look at my african-american over here.
1:34 am
look at him. >> reporter: dealing with the pandemic. >> i said to my people, slow the testing down, please. >> reporter: and on january 6 when trump repeatedly referred to the mob descending on the capitol as "my people". maye maybe it's just semantics and the way trump talks, but they say the way he's talking about these documents is wrong. they never were his documents and he could pay a price for acting like they were. tom foreman, cnn, washington. just days from now, the u.s. food and drug administration could authorize the first updated booster to protect against covid omicron variants. the cdc would need to sign off on the usage and the shot could go into arms shortly after that. this comes as vaccine producer moderna is suing pfizer and

powerful storms ripped through parts of western massachusetts friday bringing heavy rain and damaging winds. in the town of east hampton, strong gusts knocked down multiple trees and power lines. authorities say there were no reports of injuries. the risk of severe weather continues for other parts of new england includes boston and
1:39 am
bridgeport, connecticut. in mississippi, jackson residents may have to leave. the pearl river is expected to crest well above flood stage. the mayor says those in flood-prone areas should be ready to evacuate within 48 hours. derek, what are you seeing? >> yeah, kim, there's a lot of water flowing downstream from the local tributaries, a lot of that going into the pearl river, which bisects the city of jackson, the capital of mississippi, the most populated area of mississippi as well. can you see the flood warnings ongoing, following the length of the river across this region and some of the localized rivers within southern portions of louisiana and miss msissippi. it's all because of this. even eastern texas, we know that
1:40 am
we've been seeing the pictures and we've seen the imagery coming out of the area. the flooding that people have had to contend with this week has been severe. and now the water's got to go somewhere, right? water seeks its own level, and it is going to flow through the pearl river into jackson, and by tuesday morning is where we expect the crest of the river at 36 feet, major flood stage. they believe this is enough water to bring water into businesses and neighborhoods. this could be a concern especially after the heavy rainfall event we've been dealt with this past week. we still have the potential for additional flash flooding today because of more rain, one to two inches of rainfall are possible with any of these slow-moving thunderstorms. we tend to get a drop in the activity overnight because we don't have the sunshine helping heat things up. but during the afternoon and evening hours we'll see an increase in the shower and thunderstorm activity, so any of these slow-moving thunderstorms
1:41 am
could produce more rain, more flash flood potential and that's why there is a slight risk through at least 8:00 a.m. a marginal risk for this location. in fact all of the gulf coast states thanks to this stalled-out frontal boundary. kim mentioned this part in the northeast. it produced much-needed rain. this is going to put a dent in this. we reported four to six inches. a quick update from the tropics, we are monitoring two potential areas of activity across the caribbean and atlantic ocean. >> thanks so much. now to pakistan where relief efforts are under way following severe rains and floods that have killed more than 900 people and affected at least 33
1:42 am
million. pakistan says it's sending in the army to assist in operation in what it calls the humanitarian disaster. they are helping people find shelter and offering medical assistance to those who need it. a very different scene in africa, which is in the midst of a 40-year drought. the area is set to miss its fifth straight rainy season. it's on the verge of what's being called an unprecedented humanitarian catastrophe. 50 million people are at risk of hunger due to food insecurity, with ethiopia, kenya and somalia particularly at risk. what's worse is the forecast from october through december shows high chances of dryer than average conditions. well, from deadly flooding in pakistan to severe drought in parts
1:43 am
parts of africa, climate change is wreaking havoc. kristie lu stout has more. >> reporter: the challenge is immense. the record-breaking heat wave has been scorching china since june, drying up river beds, threatening crop and livestock, triggeri triggering wildfires and shutting down factories and could jeopardize china's carbon commitments. china is the world's biggest carbon emitter, and xi jinping promised to strictly control coal-powered projects and limit the increase in coal consumption. the goal to reach carbon neutrality by 2060. while china has been racing ahead in the acquisition of renewable energy sources like solar and hydropower, it is beefing up coal power production to keep up with demand. and the extreme heat has clipped
1:44 am
some of the momentum. across sichuan province, drought has cut the hydropower capacity by half. some 80% of the capacity comes from hydropower. to make up the shortfall, sichuan has been running its coal fired plant nonstop and temporarily closing factories to save power. so will the energy fallout from the heat wave make it harder for china to de-carbonize? >> i think there's good evidence that's true, and members of the poe lit bureau have been advocating that they have to go back to coal because it's more reliable. so the chances of them doubling down on the supply of coal-fired power stations i think will be increasingly high. >> reporter: china's top scientists have warned that the country is particularly vulnerable to climate change. in the future, the increase in

regional average temperatures in china will be significantly higher than the world, unquote, as china feels the devastating effects of climate change, plans for international cooperation to tackle the threat have been upended in response to house spea speaker nancy pelosi's trip to taiwan, they cut off climate talks with the u.s. >> we're the two largest carbon emitters. it's vital for the rest of the world that the unit and china continue to talk on climate change. >> in the long term, unless we find ways of cooperating internatio internationally, no country on earth can solve this problem on their own. >> reporter: kristie lu stout, hong kong. just ahead, how this could

live pictures of the artemis rocket right now. and of course nasa's keeping a close eye on the weather ahead of monday's inaugural launch of its next generation artemis rocket. weather conditions to be just right for it to successfully take off. there are two backup launch windows later in the week in case it gets called off. it is set to go around the moon, farther than any spacecraft built for humans ever has. it will eventually return humans to the moon and mayke way for exploration of mars. the main draw, the u.s. open begins on monday but is bittersweet for a tennis legend. she'll try to win her 24th major championship in what may be her last u.s. open in her opening match. she and sister venus have dominated the sport.
1:51 am
her much younger rivals say they're saddened but inspired. listen to this. >> before i was born, there wasn't many, and before serena came along there was not really an icon of the sport that looked like me, and so growing up i never thought that i was different, because, you know, the number one player in the world was somebody who looked like me. >> i think her as an athlete have been not just a tennis player have been one of the most important athletes in the history of the sport. >> i still feel like, you know, i'm just a kid who's watching, you know, and i watch her my whole life basically. she was everywhere because she always, always won. >> she has done so much for the sport. not only for tennis players but for women in general. >> now williams says she doesn't like to use the word retirement or think about her legacy. and williams has talked about
1:52 am
other interests she'll pursue when she hangs up her tennis racket. maybe she'll be enthralled by a new u.s. craze called pickle ball. >> reporter: head to recreational courts in cities across america and you're likely to hear and then see the unusual and addictive sport taking the country by storm. a hybrid of tennis, badminton, ping-pong and maybe a little bit of chess, pickle ball reigns supreme as the pandemic pastime. the sport has a dlecelebrity following for sure, but this is no fad. roughly 5 million americans are playing enthusiastically across the country, not bad for a sport invented by a dad in 1965 trying to entertain their kids. the size of the court is approximately a third of a
1:53 am
tennis court, and the time it takes to play is shorter than a game of tennis, too, lasting only until one side reaches 11 points and wins by two. the emphasis on placement over power is an equalizer that makes the game friendly to all. part of what make this is sport so fun is that absolutely anybody can try to be an elite pickle baller, but it does have a bona fide superstar in ben johns who is considered by many to be the greatest the sport has ever seen. we met up with johns in new york as he's joined the digital instruction platform top court as a pickle ball coach. >> it's really, truly a sport for everybody. i've never seen anybody not like it. it spans a wide range of ages and people of different backgrounds. i'm surprised it's kicked off so
1:54 am
quickly. you've got to make it simple. the less movement you have while you're playing the better. you want to be very stable as well as if you come from tennis, the ball bounces very low, which is a huge part of the sport. in order to hit a lower ball you need to get lower. i know people don't love to bend their knees, but it's one of the important things of the sport. >> reporter: pickle ball is serious business these days with multiple professional leagues in the united states and many overseas associations. it seems like you can find the sport everywhere you look, on tv, store shelves, tiktok and even weddings. >> i think it's kind of funny that the sport has caught on with celebrities and athletes so much because i feel like it's something that levels the playing field so to speak. so you may have a nfl player playing with a nba player. and they're like, hey, we can't compete with each other in our sport, but they can in this sport.
1:55 am
pickle ball's fun and easy to pick up, and can you compete with just about anybody. it's almost like they fight their battles on the court rather than off the court. >> reporter: with a 40% spike in participation since 2020, many are wondering where the sport will soar next. the pickle ball community has reportedly expressed interest in the sport becoming part of an upcoming olympic games. to mount a successful bid, pickle ball needs competitive players in at least 75 countries across four continents. if the trajectory here in the united states is any indication, pickle ball seems poised for prime time. >> if you're interested in learning more about pickle ball, including the big question, where does its name come from, you can read all about it on"world sport." hbo is renewing hou"house o
