ahead this hour on "cnn newsroom." in its most aggressive move yet, the house january 6th committee officially serves former u.s. president donald trump with a subpoena for documents and testimony about the insurrection. russia's alleged use of iranian-made drones to attack ukraine has some western nations calling for an investigation on the suppliers. we'll tell you all about moscow's cooperation with tehran. also in iran, a teachers union is calling for a nationwide strike over the recent deaths and detention of students around the country, adding to what has been more than a month of women-led protests against iran's violent crackdown. former u.s. president donald trump has now been officially
served with a subpoena to testify before the january 6th committee. in a series of high-profile hearings this year, the committee documented mr. trump's failed quest to overturn his election defeat, culminating in the violent and deadly attack on the u.s. capitol. the committee has set a november 4th deadline to receive the documents it has requested with november 14th as the date for mr. trump's deposition to begin. it's widely expected that mr. trump will challenge the subpoena in court or even ignore it. we get the latest from cnn's sara murray. >> we are obligated to seek answers directly from the man who set this all in motion. >> reporter: that man, donald trump, now issued a formal subpoena from the house select committee investigating the deadly attack on the u.s. capitol. looking -- >> both for his testimony under oath as well as for documents. >> reporter: the committee writing, in short, you are the at the center of the first and only effort by any u.s.
president to overturn an election and obstruct the peaceful transition of power. the evidence demonstrates that you knew this activity was illegal and unconstitutional and also knew that your assertions of fraud were false. and laying out trump's efforts to overturn the 2020 election, including pressure justice department officials, touting false allegations of voter fraud, and firing off this tweet attacking mike pence during the riot, which the committee says incited further violence by publicly condemning the vice president. the committee calling for trump to hand over documents by november 4th and appear for testimony november 14th. they're calling for a broad range of records, including calls made by trump or at his direction on january 6th, calls to members of congress, documents related to the proud boys or oath keepers. communications about blocking the certification of the election, and anything on destroying materials or contacting witnesses. but it's unclear if trump will comply. >> if they really want to damage me so i can no longer go back to
work for you, and i don't think that's going to happen. >> reporter: the former president tapping two lawyers to take the lead on responding to the subpoena and risking possible contempt of congress if he ignores it. >> u.s. law is if you are subpoenaed by congress, you're expected to come in and speak to us. >> reporter: meanwhile, trump and the justice department still battling over documents seized from mar-a-lago. >> they should give me immediately back everything that they've taken from me because it's mine. >> reporter: but "the washington post" now reporting among those documents seized include some of the most sensitive information the u.s. has on two of the biggest threats on the global stage, iran and china. according to "the post," at least one of the documents describes iran's missile program. and others detail highly sensitive intelligence work aimed at beijing. trump arguing whatever the fbi seized from his florida estate belongs to him. according to court filings, among the documents trump kept from his presidency are six clemency requests and a couple of papers related to immigration and border controls.
prosecutors say those are federal records that belong to the government, offering a glimpse at how trump lawyers and doj are locking horns as they sift through thousands of documents. >> they took it from me in the raid. they broke into my house. >> reporter: and attorneys for trump have now responded to that subpoena from the january 6th committee. they accuse the committee of flouting norms by releasing that subpoena publicly but said that they will respond as appropriate to this unprecedented action. sara murray, cnn, washington. >> mr. trump's subpoena came just hours after his former adviser, steve bannon, was sentenced to four months in prison for defying his own subpoena to appear before the january 6th committee. the contempt of congress conviction also carried a fine of $6,500. a federal judge says mr. bannon can stay out of prison for now while his conviction is appealed. and a u.s. appeals court has temporarily blocked the
president's student loan forgiveness program while it considers a challenge to it. it comes as joe biden has been touting his initiative to younger voters ahead of the midterm elections. >> republican members of congress and republican governors are doing everything they can to deny this relief even to their own constituents. as soon as i announced my administration's plan on student debt, they started attacking it, saying all kinds of things. their outrage is wrong, and it's hypocritical, but, you know, we're not letting them get away with it. you know, they've been fighting us in the courts, but just yesterday, state court and the supreme court said no. we're on biden's side. [ applause ] >> during his remarks, mr. biden also took credit for a drop in the federal deficit even though the loan forgiveness program is set to completely wipe out the government's modest deficit savings. britain's conservative party
is moving quickly to choose a new leader and prime minister by next week with as little drama as possible. outgoing prime minister liz truss abruptly resigned on thursday amid the fallout from a disastrous economic policy. well, now three candidates are leading the pack to replace her. former chancellor of the e checker sunak has reached the threshold. penny mordaunt is the first m.p. to confirm she is running. and british media reports say former prime minister boris johnson has indicated he plans to join the race. cnn's salma abdelaziz is live for you in london, and she skbjoins us now. salma, still no signs of a general election. >> reporter: absolutely. that's not taking place here. what we're going to see is a lightning speed process for the conservative party to choose their own leader, who will in turn, of course, also be prime minister of the country. to give you an idea of how quick this is happening, the last
leadership contest, the one that prime minister liz truss to power, that took about three months. this is going to all take place in just about one week's time. this weekend, that leadership race is absolutely heating up. you mentioned the three top contenders there. what they need to do is get 100 conservative mps to back them by 2:00 p.m. monday. that is when nominations close. after that we're going to see a vote that happens in the house of commons. that's going to happen monday afternoon, turning that around very quickly between those three nominations. those three nominees, if that's what it comes down to on monday, that will be whittled down to two in that vote. then there will be a second indicative vote. this is to allow conservative party members to get a sense of what mps want, and there's also a hope there that might whittle down, might force someone to step down from their nomination, leaving only one person, one nominee, the person who would take office. if that doesn't happen, the last two nominees would go back to conservative party members.
that's roughly 200,000 people, a tiny group of people who will get to select the next prime minister of this country, the third prime minister this year. that's why you hear so many people upset about how this is taking place, demanding a general election, saying that the conservative party has simply lost the public support, the public will to carry on, that they need to get back the mandate. again, under british rules, you do not have to have a general election. this is up to the conservative party. and whoever does win this nomination will have a massive task ahead of them. first of all, they have to unite the conservative party. it's a party that is deeply divided right now, that is bruised, that is broken, that is hurt by so many political rivalries over the course of the last year, that's been hemorrhaging public trust and confidence and sliding in the polls. then of course there's leading the country. you've had this disastrous economic plan. you have to lead the uk out of this economic turmoil, this economic impasse through a
period that is post-brexit while a war happens on european soil. it's a huge task, laila. >> huge task indeed. salma, thank you so much. the communist party in china has wrapped up its week-long national congress with xi jinping set to be named on sunday to a third term as general secretary of the party. it is the most powerful position in china because the leader of the only ruling party also controls the government and the military. and in a sign of his tightening grip, mr. xi could also be given a new title. and there was also a surprise in the final session. let's bring in cnn's beijing bureau chief, steven jiang. let's start with that. what happened? >> reporter: laila, in a bit of high drama, at least by chinese standard, during the closing ceremony, former chinese top leader hoe jing to you, who is mr. xi's predecessor, was seen led out of the room accompanied by two male staff members.
now, in videos captured by foreign media outlets, including cnn, we could see mr. hu actually was seen talking to the male members, the staff members briefly. and then being led out at least initially appearing to be reluctantly. and on his way out, he also appeared to have had a brief exchange of words with mr. xi and also patted on the shoulder of premier li keqiang. both men seem to have nodded in acknowledgement. because of the opaque nature of chinese politics, we really don't know for sure the circumstances surrounding this highly unusual moment in this otherwise highly choreographed moment. as soon as we started talking about this moment, the chinese censors blocked cnn's signal here, and the state media here has not reported this at all. other than this moment of surprise, the proceedings seems to have largely gone according to plan, and the delegates on
saturday selected a new central committee. that is nominally the party's leadership group comprising some 205 members, and in another signal that xi jinping is further tightening his grip, li keqiang, as well as the number four current party leader, they are both out, losing their party position, meaning really even though they may keep their government titles for a while, they are no longer at the center of the party's power structure. if we could show our viewers this hierarchy of the chinese communist party, these 205 newly selected committee members will meet on sunday to select the innermost circle of power in the party. that is the 25 member politburo. from that bureau, they're going to further select the seven men, politburo standing committee. and of course another convention mr. xi has been breaking is, of course, he is now no longer the first among equals. he is the one man whose decision
that matters. he is really the man who is calling all the shots. laila. >> steven jiang reporting from beijing, thank you very much. ukraine is warning about a possibility manmade catastrophe looming. still ahead an alleged russian plan to blow up a major dam and cause massive damage. plus, a deeper look at the drone attacks in ukraine. why three countries are calling for a u.n. investigation into the matter. nothing kills more viruses, including the covid-19 virus, on more surfacaces than lysol disinfectant spray. lysol. what it takes to protect.
when we started our business we were paying an arm and a leg for postage. i remember setting up shipstation. one or two clicks and everything was up and running. i was printing out labels and saving money. shipstation saves us so much time. it makes it really easy and seamless. pick an order, print everything you need, slap the label onto the box, and it's ready to go. our costs for shipping were cut in half. just like that. shipstation. the #1 choice of online sellers. go to shipstation.com/tv and get 2 months free. we planned well for retirement, but i wish we had more cash. they have no idea they're sitting on a goldmine. well they don't realize that if you have a life insurance policy of $100,000 or more, you can sell all or part of it to coventry for cash. even a term policy. we've got to tell them! hey, guys! you're
country at this hour. we're getting reports that rockets have been seen flying over the southern city of mykolaiv, and that a number of other cities have seen explosions and power outages. and all that is happening as ukraine is raising the alarm over an alleged russian plot to blow up a major river dam. if the dam is destroyed, that would cause not only major flooding downstream but also possible safety risks at ukraine's zaporizhzhia nuclear plant. clare sebastian is monitoring those developments for you, and she joins us now from london. what more have you learned, clare? >> laila, this morning obviously we're seeing more of the same of what we've seen from russia. reports of sort of a barrage style attack. this time it seems to be targeting western regions of ukraine, reported hits to energy infrastructure. residents being urged to stay in shelters, conserve water. this is something that we've seen over the past couple of weeks from russia in an attempt
to sort of test the resolve of ukraine going into winter by destroying parts of its energy grid. clearly this is impacting the civilian population, leading to blackouts, and those are ongoing this morning. but as you say, there is a very serious situation unfolding in the south of ukraine in the kherson region where this dam, according to president zelenskyy and his defense intelligence unit of the defense ministry, warning that russia has been mining parts of the dam. zelenskyy also saying they have been mining units of the nearby hydroelectric power plant there as well. and the defense intelligence unit saying that they have not only been mining elements of the dam but have also driven onto the dam two military tented vehicles loaded with explosives. now, if anything was to happen to this dam, the fallout would be extremely widespread. president zelenskyy has warned that 80 settlements could face flooding. not only that, but of course the
hydroelectric power plant is part of that power grid in ukraine that continues to face hits. so that would be another blow to that. plus, of course, the water from this dam is used in part to cool the reactors at the zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, which of course has been occupied by russian forces really since the very early days of this conflict. so a very dangerous situation. russian officials in the region saying that it's nonsense that they're trying to mine the dam. state news agency tass reversed those accusations on ukraine, saying they are trying to hit that dam and calling for the u.n. to stop them. >> president zelenskyy also blaming russia for slowing down grain shipments through the black sea. >> reporter: yeah, president zelenskyy in his nightly address really coming out and accusing russia of attempting to go back on what really was the only
military, diplomatic step forward in this conflict. he said they are trying to slow this down, and this could have a significant impact. take a listen to what he had to say. >> translator: as of today, more than 150 vessels are in a waiting line to fulfill their contractual obligations concerning delivery of our agricultural products. this is an artificial queue. it only arose because russia is deliberately delaying the passage of the ships. >> reporter: he said the object of this was for russia to sort of further impinge on the global food supply, which is something that we, of course, saw happening up until this grain deal came into force. 150 ships, by the way, would be more than half of the number that had already sailed as of october 7th according to the u.n. so a very significant number. meanwhile, this grain deal is expected to expire towards the end of next month. the ukrainians want to keep it going. u.n. efforts to salvage it continue, laila. >> clare sebastian reporting live from london, thank you.
well, the united nations says the war continues to take a tremendous toll on civilian lives in ukraine. more than 6,300 civilians have been killed since the war began according to the office of the high commissioner for human rights. more than 9,000 others have been injured. but the office says these are only the victims it was able to verify, and the real numbers are probably far higher. now, the uk, france, and germany are urging the u.n. to investigate russia's alleged use of iranian drones in ukraine. diplomats say iran may have violated a u.n. security council resolution by supplying drones to moscow. tehran denies the claim, but france wants the u.n. to probe the matter by going to ukraine and collecting the remains of the drones. the >> iran did sell drones to
russia, that those drones are being used inside ukraine. and the third thing we declassified and talked about yesterday was the fact we know there are iranian individuals in crimea right now that are providing technical support and training to russian operators to use those drones. so it's a bald fact. it's out there. and iran can say what they want, and so can russia. but it's true. they are on the ground. they're using their capabilities to help the russians kill more ukrainians and to strike at ukrainian infrastructure. >> earlier, i spoke about the drone attacks with sam bendet, an adviser with the center for naval analysis, where he researches russian defensive technology. i asked him why russia appears to be turning to iran for support in ukraine. >> it basically tells us that russia looked to its partner nation to fill a very key capability gap. it probably speaks a lot to some of the issues in the russian-owned defense industrial
sector, an inability to manufacture a certain key technology that russia needed for the war. but it also speaks a lot to the fact that russia was able to get that technology relatively quickly from a willing partner like iran. >> why is it iran helping russia? what's in it for tehran? >> well, both countries are allies on many issues. both countries look to each other for international support. and as the war intensified and continued and as russia became more and more isolated internationally, russia looked for willing partners for political, economic, and military support. and for iran, of course, russia has been a reliable, long-term partner on many issues in the middle east and around the world as well as russia was able to lend support to the iranian policymaking on specific issues. so this is a mutually reinforcing decision as both nations are drawn even closer now when it comes to military
technical cooperation and possibly long-term alignment on many political goals. >> let's talk a little bit more about the drones that are being used. the u.s. controversially pioneered the use of killer drones for its global war on terror. how are these cheap drones different? what are the challenges that they pose. >> you hit on a very important point. they are very cheap drones. they can cost anywhere from $20,000 to $30,000 each, which is a big difference from the more sophisticated drones that united states, israel, and a handful of other nations are also flying right now. so russia can procure many hundreds, perhaps even thousands of these drones and send them in waves against ukrainian targets to stress ukrainian defenses, to overwhelm ukrainian defenses, and to cause a number of military as well as multitude of civilian casualties. these are very cheap drones. they could be manufactured rather quickly.
a lot of them have civilian components. certainly iranian drones used by russia in ukraine today have a lot of civilian components which are easily acquired on the regular civilian market. and so these are really cheap, available technologies that could be acquired not just by russia but many other nations. >> and that was sam bendett for from the center for naval analysis speaking with me earlier. five weeks after the death of an iranian in custody of the country's morality police, outrage among protesters only seems to be growing. and now a hard-line cleric is calling for even tougher action against demonstrators. details next. plus, as the u.s. midterm elections draws closer, early voters are setting records as candidates in the hotly contested senate race in georgia make a big push for voters. that after the break. artisann vanilla cinnamon batter.
welcome back to our viewers all around the world. i'm laila harrak, and you're watching "cnn newsroom." ahead of the u.s. midterm elections, president joe biden is predicting the tide will turn on the economy, especially as he touts his student loan forgiveness program to young voters. cnn's phil mattingly reports. >> reporter: they were remarks that were supposed to be about the deficit reduction over the course of the last fiscal year, but president biden was willing to lay out some dynamics in the political landscape that perhaps he hasn't been as candid about before.
take a listen. >> the polls have been all over the place. i think that we're going to see one more shift back to our side in the closing days, and let me tell you why i think that. we're starting to see some of the good news on the economy. it's mega maga trickle-down. mega maga trickle-down, the kind of policies that have failed the country before and will fail it again. >> reporter: the president's references there were critical for a couple reasons. first, an acknowledgement that seemed clear were meant to swing back towards republicans with just 18 days until the midterm elections. the president predicting it's going to come back towards democrats. something we saw in the summer in large part because of the summer. something that has been a primary vulnerability for democrats running in their districts or states in the last several weeks. implicit in that comment according to officials was the reality that gas prices have once again started to tick down. they see a very clear
correlation between the president's approval, democratic prospects in the midterms, really the mood of the country when it comes to the prices at the pump. the president also making clear something else. that in his view, this is not necessarily a referendum on his administration or on democrats in power. it is a choice, a choice between republicans and democrats. the president, as he's held smaller, not major campaign rallies, but smaller policy-driven events over the course of the last several weeks, has been trying to make the point that they have delivered on a lot of things the president campaigned on. on friday, that was talking about student loan cancellation. well, in 22 million borrowers have already applied for cancellation of up to $10,000 in student debt. that's young voters. that's young black voters. you're seeing the white house very carefully calibrate events. they will be expanding those events, larger campaign events in the closing days leading up to the midterm elections. it is still very much anyone's guess how things are going to end. and republicans have made very clear they feel good about the
current direction of things. the president, however, saying publicly he thinks it's going to swing back their way. phil mattingly, cnn, the white house. early voting in the upcoming u.s. midterm elections has already begun. officials say nearly 6 million ballots have been cast across 39 states. georgia is reporting record turnout with more than half a million people voting since monday while candidates in georgia's u.s. senate race are making a final push for votes. in a contest that could affect the senate's balance of power. cnn's eva mckend has more. >> reporter: at a campaign rally here in peach tree city, senator raphael warnock spending much of his remarks to voters talking about health care, touting a provision in the inflation reduction act that he authored aimed to loyer the cost of insulin. meanwhile, his republican opponent, herschel walker, campaigning in south georgia, making his case to voters in
amare cuss and columbus. >> you want to ask me why i'm running? a lot of people are campaigning for you. they're telling you lies. they've been telling you this is the new normal. i'm going to tell you it's not the new normal. but what we need right now, we don't need politicians. we need warriors, warriors that's ready to go to washington and tell people that right now, you're not going to separate my people. you're not going to tell us that you're no this or that because i remember dr. king. he's trying to tell you because of the color of your skin, you're no good. you're an oppressor or you're a victim. i'm going to tell you you're victorious. >> my work in the senate really is an extension of that lifelong commitment to service. fighting for health care, which is why i'm glad that i was able to get something done on that front. you know, i believe in health
care so much, i've gotten arrested a couple of times fighting for health care. [ applause ] >> good trouble. >> i got arrested in the governor's arrested. i got arrested in the united states capitol, in the rotunda, fighting for health care. now, i pass through that rotunda nowadays on the way to my office where i right the medicaid legislation. >> peach tree city where many of the residents travel by golf cart. it's in fayette county, increasingly competitive in recent years. democrats here feel pretty good about their chances. they believe they can flip this county blue. e eva mckend, peach tree, georgia. u.s. senator lindsey graham has asked the supreme court to block a subpoena from a georgia special grand jury which is investigating efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election. the republican lawmaker filed
the request after an appellate court ruled that the grand jury could seek testimony from him, and that his efforts to exhort georgia election officials are not constitutionally protected as he has claimed. hundreds of demonstrators took to the streets in southwestern iran on friday. many of them chanting "death to the dictator" outside a police station. the protests come three weeks after dozens were killed during what's become known as the bloody friday demonstrations. the protests in iran and outside the country have been sparked by the death last month of 22-year-old mahsa amini. she died in the custody of iran's morality police, who accused her of not wearing a headscarf properly. t a staggering number of people have been arrested in iran since these protests erupted some five weeks ago. now at least one hard-line
cleric is calling for even harsher action against these demonstrators. >> reporter: that is the concern, laila, that this crackdown by the iranian regime could still continue to intensify. we've already seen hard-line tactics being employed throughout the last few weeks over the course of these demonstrations. according to one human rights organization, more than 200 people have been killed so far amidst these protests although it isn't possible for cnn to independently verify that death toll. as you laid out, we are seeing those mass detentions of protesters, many of them of course peaceful protesters who have now faced the oppression of the iranian regime. it is estimated tens of thousands of people have been arrested by the iranian security forces over the course of these protests. but it is difficult to ascertain the full and clear picture of just how many people have been detained.
but numerous human rights organizations have detailed the detention of peaceful protesters, journalists, lawyers, political actors, human rights activists in iran. this is something we've seen in the past, but it appears to be picking up as these protests continue to gain momentum. while these figures are staggering, what is perhaps of most concern right now is the conditions and the situation being faced by those being detained amidst these protests. we have heard reports from human rights organizations of protesters being detained without a warrant, arbitrarily by security officers in disguise, some even according to some reports in hospitals and clinics, targeting those protesters coming in for treatment following a crackdown by the iranian security forces. it's once they're in detention where there is further concern because many of them are unable to speak to their lawyers, to contact family members or relatives. some family members have described not being able to find out where their loved ones have been, where they're being held
for weeks at a time. we have heard from amnesty international and other human rights organization of the excessive and lethal force being used by the iranian security forces. there have been concerns raised about the treatment of those protesters who have been detained. possible ill treatment, torture even, and some of them reportedly being killed. so there are real concerns here. but these protests are continuing despite that crackdown, and they are still gaining momentum. laila. >> thank you very much. a common respiratory virus is filling up u.s. hospitals and worries parents. coming up, the latest on the rsv outbreak and what you can do to help keep your child safe.

rsv nationwide and in particular when it comes to kids having to go to the hospital, we're seeing hospitals in many parts of the country being overwhelmed with the number of kids being admitted. we know that rsv is a common lower tract respiratory illness in kids usually under the age of 1 and causes about 58,000 hospitalizations a year in kids under 5. typically we treat it symptomatically and most kids do well when they are hospitalized with supportive care. we think we're seeing this uptick in part because of covid mitigation strategies which really prevented kids in many parts of the country from being exposed at a time when they normally would. most individuals have rsv before they reach the age of 2 but here we have a population of children who never had the ability to develop immunity because of those mitigation strategies. also moms who may not have passed along immunity to their babies because of decreased exposure to moms over the past two years. in terms of what parents need to know, we want to make sure they pay attention to things like runny nose, sneeze, cough,
fever, wheezing, or in young infants, decreased activity or irritability or difficulty breathing. if any of those things get worse or a child is unable to stay hydrated, looks like they're having respiratory difficulty, it is important to get to the emergency room. pediatricians do have tests to help differentiate this from covid and the flu. that's another important thing to note. finally, keeping kids safe, this is transmitted basically in similar ways with cough and sneezing and viral particles that can land on hard surfaces and actually live there for several hours. so it would be important to cover coughs, to wash hands, to disinfect and clean surfaces and really avoid contact with people who may be sick, particularly paying attention to your younger children and keeping thaem way from anyone who may be exhibiting signs that could be rsv. free covid vaccines for some could soon be coming to an end. drugmaker pfizer says as government contracts end, vaccine doses will be sold for more than $100 a dose.
that means once the measures are commercialized, uninsured adults would lose access to free vaccines. for now, the vaccine is still free, and the government has renewed its public health emergency declaration for another 90 days. but congress has yet to act on the biden administration's request for billions more in funding. when we come back, there's a new hurricane taking aim on mexico, getting stronger as it crossed toward popular tourist resorts. we have an update for you from the cnn weather center up next. some are of intensity, others, joy. all are of - ahhhh. listerinine. feel the whoa!

it is going to move just to the north of that, but where does it make landfall? it's so important because this is a game of miles. it's the center of circulation that matters the most because that is the area that has the strongest winds, the greatest surge, and the greatest potential for damage. and this storm is a very compact storm as well with hurricane conditions extending about 15 miles from the center so 30 miles in diameter. even though the national hurricane center doesn't explicitly show a category 3 or higher making landfall, it is likely especially with the latest trends and the sat lie imagery and some of the reconnaissance aircraft data that this storm will be teetering or be at that by the time it reaches the coastline of west central mexico, into jal jalisco. here's the warnings. you can see that in the shade of red. hurricane watches to the north. this is the projected path and timing.
you can see by late tonight, saturday night local time, into early sunday morning, that is when we anticipate that landfalling hurricane, could be a major hurricane, just to the north and west of puerta vallarta. again, this is a popular tourist destination with 200,000 people calling this particular location home. the threats here, storm surge, strong winds, and the potential for landslides and mudslides as well. >> thank you. nasa has picked 60 people to lead its highly anticipated study on ufos. scientists, former pentagon officials, and a veteran astronaut will begin the study on monday. they'll spend nine months looking at unclassified data on so-called unidentified aerial phenomena. then they'll recommend how that data can be used to better understand mysterious events in the sky. in short, nasa wants to explain the unexplainable, and it says the study could benefit both national security and air safety.
