1:03 am
officers. the president said if we feel we are losing control at the border and if we feel there is a danger of people getting hurt, we will temporarily close the border. that is what they did. the mexican government said they plan to depart any of those people they manage to identify who tried to get into the u.s. the border did reopen after a few hours after the agents managed to get things under control. they beefed up the staffing in anticipation of the protests suspecting something may go wrong. it did. they closed the border and they dealt with it. polo, christine. >> nick watt there. the incoming mexican government is denying any deal was made with the trump administration for asylum seekers to remain in mexico while the cases are deciding.

1:06 am
rosenstein and whitaker who could sit on it permanently. >> whitaker could have to go to congress before releasing the report. so far, there is no indication he has been briefed on anything related to the russia investigation. trey gowdy looking for middle ground with the fight with james comey and the judiciary committee. chairman bob goodlett has requested for information in the 2016 campaign. comey wants to testify publicly. gowdy is the compromise. >> the remedy for leaks is not to have a public hearing where you are supposed to ask about 17 months of work in five minutes. i think the remedy is the videotaped deposition. i hate leaks. i think they undercut the
1:07 am
investigation. the remedy is not to have a professional carnival atmosphere. >> he would know. gowdy would know about the carnival atmosphere. he oversaw the benghazi investigation. he subpoenaed former secretary loretta lynch. ukraine says russian boats opened fire on three ships near the kerch strait. the standoff is another complication with russia days before presidents trump and putin are expected to come face-to-face with the summit in argentina. we have matthew chance with the latest from moscow. matthew. >> reporter: polo, thank you very much. that fact that presidents trump and putin will meet at the g20
1:08 am
summit is one of the reasons why russian television is saying this took place. they are accusing of ukrainian authorities of orchestrating it to disrupt the meeting. the fact remaining the ukrainian navy says three ships were fired upon and boarded by russian special forces in the kerch straight between the crimea peninsula and russia. that was yesterday local time. there was dramatic video of a russian patrol vessel apparently ramming the ukrainian tugboat. the ukrainians say the second incident, at least sailors were injured. the fate of the crew not known at the moment. video has emerged of the three ships detained by russia in the port of kerch in the crimean

1:16 am
winds and reduced visibility. kansas city airport closed down at one point yesterday. it is a system pushing across the midwest and northeast. snowfall is not in the picture. get to the higher elevations and interior portion of the new england and it is all about wintry weather. disruption to be had here and a lot of disruption on the monday in the ohio valley and tennessee valley as well. this is part of the frontal boundary which kicks up winds up to 50 miles per hour. look at the temperatures getting to the freezing mark in kansas city and indianapolis and places in minneapolis with highs of 21 degrees. >> thank you for that. after two and a half weeks of historic destruction, the camp fire in northern california is finally 100% contained. it is the state's deadliest fire
1:17 am
by far. at least 85 people killed. the fire has destroyed nearly 14,000 homes and nearly 5,000 other structures. it has burned more than 153,000 acres. 249 people are reported missing. that number is down from more than 1,000 a few days ago. search for remains was halted temporarily friday because of rain and strong winds which made fire-weakened trees dangerous. it helped douse some of the fire. the deadly shooting at the alabama mall on thanksgiving night has taken a disturbing turn. hoover police say the man they thought fired the shot and sent people in the panic was likely not the shooter. the officer shot and killed 21-year-old e.j. bradford as he ran from the scene.
1:18 am
>> bradford might have been involved, but the gunman may be on the loose. bradfo bradford's family says authorities have not contacted them. >> they assassinated my nephew on thanksgiving night. as far as i'm concerned, he was assassinated. somebody has to have accountability for this. i will never stop the fight until the day i die. i will get justice. >> the man in the blue tie is benjamin crump. he said bradford did have a conceal concealed carry permit. the officer who shot bradford is on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation. the pentagon identified the u.s. soldier killed in afghanistan over the weekend.
1:19 am
21-year-old leandro jasso was on combat operations. he was evacuated to a medical facility where he died. he was part of the elite ranger regimen from washington state. he is the tenth u.s. service member to be killed this year and the second just this month. a critical moment for are brexit. the eu approved, but parliament gets a say and signs are not good. we are live at 10 downing street next. i am a family man.

minister theresa may is expected to address parliament on bricex. agreed on a post-brexit future. does may have the votes she needs to pass? we have the latest from 10 downing street. nic robertson, what does this mean now? >> reporter: it will get gripping. it may come to a cliff edge soon. the next major step here is obviously the vote in parliament which is expected in a couple of weeks. today, theresa may, in an hour's time, will meet with the cabinet. over the weekend, she published an open letter to the british people. she will give a speech in the house of commons in five hours time. over the next couple weeks before the vote comes, we can expect her to double down on her message that she has delivered the best deal possible and this is what we heard from the
1:25 am
european union over the weekend. there is no going back. this is the deal. she will say this deal delivers on what the british people wanted which is control of the borders, meaning migration and immigrants coming into the country. that is part of the big sell. it is to take back money in the uk. rather than giving money to the eu, there will be $500,000 a week to go into the national health service here. these messages will resonate, but the numbers are stacked against her. rebels in her party and her key allies from northern ireland is against her. the majority was razor thin. she doesn't have the numbers at the moment. perhaps part of the calculation is she may fail at the first hurdle of the vote which will cause the pound to drop off the
1:26 am
cliff. a week later, she may go back for a second vote when everyone feels chase. >> this is a dangerous game. nic robertson, thank you so much. breaking news. a british student accused by the uae of being a spy and sentenced to life in prison has been pardoned. this is days after 31-year-old matthew hedges family made a plea to the government. hedges was arrested in may after a research trip. he is a specialist in middle eastern studies in durham. hedges was forced to sign a confession in arabic although he doesn't read or speak the language. is this an invasion or maybe people seeking asylum? the pictures, christine, that came out of the border yesterday depends on who you ask.

1:50 am
president's message that climate change is a hoax. this report finds climate change could cost hundreds of billions a year. the southeast will lose half a billion labor hours due to extreme heat. in the midwest, farms will produce less than 75% of the corn they produce today. heat stress could cause dairy production to fall between .60% and 1% over the next 12 years. heat stress could cost the industry $1.2 billion in 2010. it is getting a lot of attention that this report was buried in the holiday weekend. >> something that was to be released in december. a story to look out for today. mars about to get a new visitor from earth. nasa scientists saying if all goes well, the "insight" spacecraft will land near the
1:51 am
mars equator this afternoon. the scientists who designed the "insight" probe calling the landing seven minutes of terror. why? out of 44 attempts to land it, 18 have been successful. once inside -- once it lands on mars -- it will go inside the core of mars. and what elon musk told tesla and his plan to go to mars. we will get a check of cnn business next. this isn't just any moving day.

1:57 am
facebook not giving people access to user data. in this case, the president of the smaller tech company happened to be in the uk and uk parliament which is aggressive going against facebook trying to find out more about what has happened with brexit on facebook and fake news, they seized those documents. now they are at parliament and they might reveal them, although a judge in the u.s. is trying to stop that. we will listen today as they have this hearing about disinformation and find out if the documents are finally revealed to the public. maybe we can find out why facebook doesn't want us to know. >> samuel, this is coming during a perilous time for facebook. we have seen mark zuckerberg testify before lawmakers here. apparently the company tried to release a lot of details over the thanksgiving holiday. tell us about that. >> reporter: polo, you and i know this is the thanksgiving
1:58 am
news dump. a company has information they don't want people to see and they feel people may be asleep at the wheel. we were awake and we saw when facebook released a statement which they hired the firm and the article how facebook worked with them. they hired the group and sheryl sandberg said she did not know about that, but now she did in fact had e-mails saying they did hire the group. facebook admits they hired the group to go after george soros. so many groups will use anti-semitic issues against george soros. a rich jewish billionaire trying to influence politics. now sandberg saying we did not want to use that for attacks.
1:59 am
now she said being jewish is a core part of who i am and our company stands against hate. the idea our work is interpreted as anti-semitic is abhorrent. sandberg and zuckerberg are both jewish. it must be particularly difficult to know that much of what they were paying for was at least interpreted in this way by many people. >> so much criticism of the company executives for not getting in front of all of this sooner. you know, that criticism is not going anywhere. nice to see you, samuel. according to the tesla ceo elon musk, tesla almost died earlier this year. musk said tesla faced a threat of death during the model 3 production. >> essentially the company was bleeding money like crazy and if we didn't solve the problems in
2:00 am
a short period of time, we would die. it was difficult to solve them. >> musk added tesla came within single digit weeks of death before meeting the production goals. he sees a 70% chance he will live to ride a spacex rocket to mars. >> 47 years. stick around. "early start" continues right now. drama at the border. hundreds of migrants overwhelm police. the move bound to inflame the heated rhetoric on immigration. tensions increase with russia and ukraine. a tugboat rammed. ukraine says russia fired. grab your digital wallets. cyber monday deals today. what
