breaking overnight, two u.s. troops killed in afghanistan at efforts wrap up to bring that 17 war to a close. and do family tours and staff departures mean the special counsel is done? and jared kushner uses whatsapp to communicate with foreign leaders. why his attorney says it is not a problem. and for the second time in a year, mississippi is trying to ban abortions before some women even know they have a baby on
1:01 am
the way. good morning, welcome to "early start." >> it is finally friday, march 22, it is 4:00 a.m. in the east. we start with breaking news overnight. two u.s. service members killed while conducting an operation in afghanistan. information still coming in. let's get straight to matthew chance live from moscow. what are we learning? >> reporter: well, we don't know much at this stage, but there has been a press statement reached by nato resolute support saying that two u.s. service members were killed while conducting an operation on this day march 22 inside afghanistan. the statement says in accordance with the u.s. department of defense policy, the name of the service names killed are being withheld until 24 hours after their next of kin has been
1:02 am
notified. so it may well be until tomorrow. but it does bring to fore the number of service personnel killed just this year alone, more than 2300 have been killed since the war began more than 17 years ago now. and that is underlying concerns and the urgency being felt in the united states to try to bring america's longest running conflict ever to an end. the united states president donald trump has said that he is accelerating diplomatic efforts to try to achieve that. diplomats have been meeting with negotiators from the taliban, the militant group that was toppled back in 2001 but which has been resurgent in recent meetings, they have been meeting to try to get a peace proposal together. the afghan government, which is a strong ally of the u.s. and others, is very concerned about that because they have been kind of cut out of the process and they feel that they may be abandoned to taliban if the united states and its allies
1:03 am
should leave. but the fact that another two service personnel have been killed underlines the urgency and need to bring that conflict to an end. >> matthew chance live for us in moscow. thank you. the mueller watch in full swing here. robert mueller has the world on edge this morning, the special counsel appears close to delivering his final russia report. belt way insiders and the president's lawyers are on high alert and here is why. members of mueller's team are bringing family members to the office for on visits with some staff members carrying out boxes. the top prosecutor is leaving for another assignment and the special counsel's grand jury has not been seen in two months. >> when mueller does file his report, it could take weeks for most americans to find out what he learned. the special counsel is required to hand over his report to attorney general bill barr. the justice department would then share portions with the
1:04 am
white house. cnn reported that the white house wants to review is it before lawmakers do to claim executive privilege where it sees necessary. >> and emmet flood and his team have already prepared responses to whatever becomes public based on several potential scenarios. sources tell cnn there appears to be a sense of relief within the white house that they managed to navigate the entire mueller episode without this president ever sitting down for a face-to-face interview. from the white house point of view, it is a big win. meanwhile elijah cummings claims several senior white house officials have used personal email and messaging accounts to conduct government business. in a letter to the white house, the maryland democrat alleges jared kushner has been using whatsapp to communicate with foreign leaders. according to cummings, kushner's attorney insists his client is complying with the presidential records act because he takes screen shots of the whatsapp messages and sends them to his
1:05 am
white house account or the national security council. >> so why not just use the official email for that? >> begs that question. >> it is not clear whether kushner communicated classified information. cummings also claims that casey mcfarland and steve bannon received e-mails on their accounts about the transfer of sensitive nuclear technology to saudi arabia. these new revelations come as president trump continues to attack hillary clinton for using a private email server when she was secretary of state. he built a campaign around that. and now his own administration questioned about complying with presidential records act. >> they are still chanting lock her up at the rallies because of that. boeing meanwhile paying a heavy price for two deadly crashes involving its 737 max 8. indonesian carrier wants to cancel an order for 49 of the jets. boeing stock down 11.7% since
1:06 am
the most recent disaster. in ethiopia, that is over $27 billion in market cap gone. in the face of the crisis, boeing's cnn dennis muilenburg made $23.5 million last year, a raise of 27%. and now the "new york times" reports that the pilots of both doomed jet liners lacked two notable safety features that could have helped them. it seems boeing only offered them as extras. tom foreman has more on the safety features and what the company is doing now. >> the heat around boeing is just getting hotter. these were considered add-ons by boeing and they would tell you that the pilots inside the plane, it would tell them that if these sensors on the front of the plane were reading that the plane was heading more up or if it was heading more down or if they disagreed with each other. readouts in the plane and also a
1:07 am
warning light, these are two separate systems. boeing says that they will make one of these things no longer something that they charge for, no longer an add-on, but a standard part of the plane. but this is really ratcheting up the tension around boeing because people are saying if these are safety measures, to make this plane safer, why weren't they free all along. why weren't they considered a standard part of the plane. one of the answers is these types of add-ons are a big market for companies like boeing. nonetheless, this will make the investigations of boeing which we know now from the fbi, justice department, just go even more energetic at this point. what are they looking at in all of this? any sign that boeing was taking steps that effectively by omission or co-mission allowed a dangerous circumstance to come into play which has taken hundreds of lives. >> tom foreman, thank you.
1:08 am
another we're sorry from facebook, this time from its handling of the passwords of hundreds of millions of you. facebook says it stored them in an internal database that staff had access to. a facebook prvice president sai they were not visible to anyone outside facebook. a year of constant issues for facebook. cybersecurity concerns, regulatory scrutiny in the u.s. and europe and a lengthy outage last week. at the same time that misinformation about vaccines is appearing on facebook and instragram weeks after both sites said they would minimize contract. earlier this month facebook he said it would reduce the rankings of pages that spread misinformation by not including them in recommendations or predictions when users type a search. but two weeks later, this is still an issue. business review showed facebook recommending content in the search bar that links vaccines

with autism. of course that is not borne out by science. a spokesperson called the effort to curb the misinformation a long term commitment. this weekend trump world will be remembered for the president's in-says santa attacks on the late senator john mccain. in an interview thursday with fox business, he yet again slammed the deceased war hero calling mccain horrible for his 2017 vote against a measure to repeal obamacare. and claiming the arizona republican gave explosive dossier on alleged trump ties to russia for, quote, very evil purpose. the president also said this -- >> he can't punch back. you punch back, but he's dead. >> i don't talk about it. people ask me the question. i didn't bring it up, you brought it up. >> you talked about this week. >> you asked me the question. >> fact check, that is not true. president trump went after mccain unsolicited twice on
1:10 am
twitter last weekend and did it again this week during a speech intended to focus on the economy in ohio. >> yeah, what you're looking at, no one asked the president right there about john mccain. he went on a lengthy tirade about john mccain the late senator and are war hero. president trump overturning five decades of policy in a single tweet announcing it is time for the united states to fully recognize israel's sovereignty over the golan heights. it handles benjamin netanyahu a significant foreign policy victory just weeks before israelis head to the polls. want to bring in oren liebermann. politically for netanyahu, this was important. >> reporter: absolutely. netanyahu was facing a very difficult re-election campaign. he had been slide management polls a little bit and this could easily reverse that trend
1:11 am
polls a little bit and this could easily reverse that trend. the u.s. recognition of israeli sovereignty where i'm standing now in the go plan heights. this has been considered as occupied territory. no one recognized it until now. there didn't seem to be any pressing reason to make this announcement even if the international community was opposed to it. there wasn't anyone pushing back. so why now? and that answer perhaps the elections. trump handing netanyahu such a big victory, certain to give him an election boost. when asked about it, secretary of state mike pompeo who was visiting here didn't mention the election, netanyahu never mentioned the elections and trump said it wasn't really a consideration, but that is hard to believe. here's what he said to fox. >> it is not about netanyahu he'd re-election? in in. >> no, i wouldn't even know about that. i have no idea. he was doing okay. i don't know if he is doing great, but i hear he is doing okay. but i would imagine the other
1:12 am
side whoever is against him is also in favor of what i just did. >> reporter: though it is certainly true that all israelis will support this move, not likely to sway anybody in the international community. we've seen condemnation from syria saying this is the u.s. being blindly biased toward israel. russia saying the u.s. can't simply overturn enter nags cint. and netanyahu will be meeting with trump and stair in ty in tr house. so just a part of the trump administration lobbying for netanyahu to win. >> all right, thank you, sir. ahead, 25 states at risk of serious flooding this spring. some of them already saturated. farmers are getting desperate. we're on the ground in iowa next.

1:18 am
and some don't think that they will be able to plant a crop this year. we spoke to some of them. >> there is a lot of pain and uncertainty of your future, what you're going to have to go back to, the amount of money that it will take to even possibly try to put your life back together as far as your family goes. >> i need to be able to farm this ground, i need to be able to do my job, i need to be able to do what i do. i work hard at it and to not be able to have that even just one piece of the pie, it is going to be detrimental. it is real tough to see. all right and according to the american farm bureau, farm bank revenues were up about 20%. highest level in ten years. and farmers here are expecting more flooding as record snowfall in the north is expected to melt

a temporary reprieve for the uk. the european union has extended the brexit deadline to overt the prospect of britain crashing out of the eu without a deal next friday. but there are conditions. international diplomatic editor nic robertson is standing by at 10 downing street in london this morning. is this any sign of progress or just more uncertainty and moving the ball down the road? >> reporter: kicking the can down the road, that's what it is. and what we're seeing i think here is the european union in a way trying to take a little bit of control. they were very concerned that with the deadline at the end of the week on the 29th, that theresa may would come back to them at the end of next week at the last moment and say i've failed to get my deal through, now you've got to do this for me. in a what we've seen the european union try to get around that. they have set two deadliness. you can have until may 22
1:26 am
provided you get the agreement signed off on, the withdrawal agreement, the brexit agreement signed off on. but if you don't get it signed off, then you only have until the 12th of april. and the simple reason for that is european elections are coming up and they say that if britain was going to take part in those european elections, it must make it clear before the 12th of april. what the european union here is doing is saying that everything is still on the table, a deal, a bleks dea brexit deal, a no-deal scenario, a much longer extension than is on the table right now is still an option and of course britain can reverse brexit plans completely. theresa may seems to be ruling all of that out. she is saying the people in britain will not vote in the european elections so she is really going back to the position that she was in already, high deal my deal or n. so really it changes nothing. the substance of the agreement,
1:27 am
nothing at all other than that deadline moving it forward in two weeks. we could be back in this place again very soon. >> and there is no roadmap for this really. fascinating. already. nic robertson watching all of it for us. >> you can't help but wonder if at what point another referendum becomes at least something that they discuss. >> but there is also the view that referendum is undoing democracy because the people voted to leave the eu. >> very uninformed vote. >> you don't get a mulligan. >> i think a lot of people do want it. ahead, two u.s. troops have been killed in afghanistan. another devastating blow as the u.s. struggles to close out its longest war. from the first loving touch everything that touches your baby should be this comforting pampers swaddlers, the #1 choice of hospitals,

1:33 am
alliance, that is the operation inside afghanistan involving thousands of u.s. personnel helping the afghan military to combat the taliban as they battle them for territory on the ground. that short statement saying two u.s. service members were killed while oconducting an operation. it doesn't give any details about the operation. but it goes on to say that in accordance with u.s. department of defense policy, the names of the service personnel killed in action are being withheld until 24 hours after their next of kin have been notified. so it could be tomorrow before we find out their identities. but it brings to fore u.s. service personnel killed in action this year loalone, more than 2300 u.s. personnel have been killed in that conflict. and ten times as many have been
1:34 am
left injured with some with obviously very severe casualties. and it underlines how important it has become for the united states to bring that number of u.s. forces down and bring a close to the longest running war in american history in afghanistan. already an order has been issued by the white house some time ago to accelerate negotiations with the taliban who were toppled in 2001, but they have been res resurgent in recent months. but those negotiations have not yet forged a peace deal and this is the result. >> just tragic. matthew chance, thank you for that. also breaking moments ago, north korea pulling out of the joint liaison office it opened last year with south korea. the statement from the south said seoul was notified that the north is pulling out with instructions from the superior authority. the move comes after the u.s. slapped two chinese firms with

1:38 am
engage in discussions with foreign leelders without fear that those communications will be disclosed and foreign leaders must be assured of this as well. a lawmaker is looking into whether there was an attempt to con be seal or misrepresent president trump's contacts with putin. he reportedly kept aides in the dark about the meetings confiscated his interpreter's notes following the meeting with putin in germany. elijah cummings says his committee has not received any documents from the white house on any topic they are investigating. boeing paying a heavy price for two deadly crashes involving a 737 max 8. the indonesian carrier says it ntd with as to cancel an order for 49 of those jets. boeing's stock down 11.7% since the recent disaster. in the face of the crisis, a new filing reveals the ceo dennis mu muilenburg made $23.5 million last year, a raise of 27% just
