tv   Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans  CNN  March 31, 2015 2:00am-3:01am PDT

2:00 am
the idea of moving back home with your parents may make john berman cringe but this is the smartest move. live with mom and dad. pay down student debt. invest. save for a home. 16% of young people plan to do that. many are putting 50% of their pay on rent with student loan bills, it just makes sense. you can't go home yet. >> i think it is an indictment on our system if you have to move home to afford anything. let me say this i have so many financial questions. i wish there were a place i could get the answers. where could that be? oh there's a new book out. "smart is the new rich." >> you can't change the system. "early start" continues right now. >> trying to reach a nuclear deal with iran.
2:01 am
can an historic breakthrough be reached? we are breaking down the angles of the big story ahead. history of suicidal tendencies and motive to kill. disturbing information about the pilot who flew flight 9525 into a mountain. new backlash for indiana. its religious freedom law criticized into legalizing discrimination. i'm christine romans. welcome to "early start." >> i'm john berman. happening right now, negotiators in switzerland working to reach a deal to curb iran's nuclear program. the deadline to reach the framework of an agreement is today. just hours to go and stumbling blocks remain. breaking in the last few minutes, lavrov is returning to the talks in switzerland. could this be a sign that they
2:02 am
are closing in on a deal. let's get the latest from elise labott who joins us now from the talks. the russian foreign minister on his way back. elise. >> reporter: john when he left yesterday, i thought he was saying get your act together and i'll come back when something is ready to close. by him coming back they could be close. i talked with secretary of state john kerry yesterday. he told me there was a bit of light in the negotiations yesterday, but tricky issues still remain. the issues we have been talking about for the past few days iran wants to continue to research in development the nuclear technology in the end years of the deal. the international community wants to keep restrictions on throughout the 15 years of the deal. we are talking about u.n. security council sanctions. iran wants them lifted on day one.
2:03 am
international community wants to keep them on as iran shows compliance with the deal and and lift them in phases. they want the flexibility if iran violates the deal. secretary kerry says they will work throughout the day to get a deal. they know the importance of today. john. >> just hours left to go. elise labott keep us posted if there are any developments. >> if iran and the world powers do not reach a deal there are concerns that iran would access rate the nuclear program with no outside over sight. in an interview with barbara starr, the head of the agency that monitors testing, iran would almost certainly be caught by seismic sensors. >> if any country that would try today to hide a nuclear test explosion, we have more than 90% chance of detecting it.
2:04 am
>> with the hours ticking down to the deadline on the deal house speaker boehner leading house republicans who will arrive in israel today. boehner is set to meet prime minister netanyahu who is returning a favor. boehner invited the prime minister to speak to congress earlier this month giving netanyahu a high profile platform to speak out against a nuclear deal with iran. let's bring in cnn's oren liebermann in israel. >> reporter: good morning. boehner's visit is a high profile opportunity for netanyahu. it is a big day in israeli politics. swearing in party for the winning party. netanyahu has been speaking out against the deal. he says the deal would not only threaten israel, but more moderate countries in the middle east. netanyahu is getting a very
2:05 am
strong show of support from american republicans from congressional republicans. not only house speaker boehner here with a delegation of republicans, but it was senator mcconnell here earlier this week with senate republicans. mcconnell met with netanyahu and reaffirmed the relationship with the two of them. mcconnell says if there is a deal they would push forward a deal. the prime minister's office here asn't hasn't released details of the meeting. >> oren liebermann, thank you. this morning, we are learning detail btss about the crash of flight 9525. the issue is that andreas lubitz suffered suicidal tendency prior to getting his pilot's license.
2:06 am
he visited an eye doctor who determined his problems were psychosomatic. for the latest on the investigation, let's bring in cnn's correspondent frederik pleitgen in cologne. fred interesting the possible motive here. >> reporter: absolutely john. the investigators are trying to piece together as much evidence as they have. one of the things that a source close to the investigation told us frankly they believe at this stage of the game you will not get a 100% certainty as to what actually drove this man to do what he apparently did. because there is no clear note from him, a good-bye note all they have to work with is circumstantial evidence. as far as a motive is concerned, they tell us that they are now zeroing in very much on the motive being the fact he was afraid. he might lose his certification to fly because of the medical problems that he had. of course we have known for
2:07 am
several days from the state prosecutor here in germany as well as other sources that he had sick notes and he destroyed those sick notes in an apparent attempt to hide his medical condition from his employer. that certainly is something they established in the past. now they are saying one of the working theories is he did this because he was afraid to lose his certification. we also know from the airline that he did manage to pass a physical in summer of 2014. he did have another one coming up this year as well. they say that there was no indication he had problems with his eyes and they never received any word from him that he was suffering from a mental problem and seeing a doctor for the mental problems otherwise it would have been on him to tell them he was suffering from this. >> frederik pleitgen still so many questions. in yemen, the conflict there
2:08 am
there inntenseifying to root out the houthi rebels. air strikes launched overnight to keep them from taking over the city of aden. later today the white house is expected to announce a commitment to a 28% cut in emissions in the next ten years. details of the plan not being released. it is expected to include tough requirements for power plants and stricter emission limits for cars and trucks and limiting greenhouse gasses like methane. time for an early start on your money. big rally for stocks make them positive for the year. dow climbed 1.5%. the s&p 500 nasdaq climbing more than 1%.

2:36 am
they are zeroing in on the very real possibility that the main motive for why he did this could possibly be that he was afraid to lose his fitness to fly certification if in fact his employer found out about the psychological and physical problems that he had as well. that is a source that is close to the investigation telling us. they are looking at everything on the table, but they are probably not going to get 100% confirmation as to the motive would have been. they say at this point in time because you don't have the clear letter from him, a good-bye letter from him stating why he did this all they can do is look at circumstantial evidence and everything that is on the table. at the same time we also have new word from the french investigating body. they say the investigation is progressing as well. they are taking more and more looks at what is on the cockpit voice recorder. they are saying they are working on two things.
2:37 am
it is systemic weaknesses that may have led to the crash. on the one hand the process of being able to lock the cockpit door that is one thing they are looking at and they say they are looking at possible psychological evaluation within the entire process and catching possible psychological patterns they say, for the future. it is of course two things very important right now. one hand getting clarification of why it happened and make sure something like this doesn't happen again. >> fred pleitgen, thank you. new developments of the recovery and the road built to the crash site. we are live with that part of the story in 15 minutes. 37 minutes after the hour. boycotts and backlash over indiana's religious freedom law called legalized discrimination. the governor has a new defense out this morning.
