difficult. the family members were in the room with the six coffins and they don't know who is in the coffin, on the island or in the room there. can you imagine having to endure that after everything else the families have had to go through this week. >> i can't, will. 10:17 p.m. in new zealand. great reporting live, will ripley. it's an incredible scenario from the beginning. and videos emerge of a tour group on that island. 15 minutes before this volcanic eruption. a lot of questions ahead. >> also for the people who were injured and you need skin grafts in new zealand asking for more skin from the united states. a bald eagle held tight in the water by an octopus. what a people of salmon farmers did to set it free.

was paying close attention, as the republicans and democrats were going back and forth on the house judiciary committee. now, all this comes as the senate majority leader, mitch mcconnell, says he is going to be coordinating with the white house counsel, pat cipollone, closely, on what that senate trial is going to look like. that's something the president has been turning his attention on. he wants to be vindicated when it comes to the time to have that senate trial, which mcconnell says will be in the early year. one interesting thing that did happen is as the president behind the scenes has been privately complaining about impeachment, his campaign manager was touting what they see is the political benefits of what's happening in washington right now. they say they're able to fund raise faster and get more volunteers and ignite this game behind their supporters because of impeachment because the supporters see the president and think he's being attacked and think his presidency is being
attacked. they think in the long run, that's going to help them. >> kaitlan collins, thanks. breaking overnight, a decisi decisive, historic outcome in the u.k. election. >> it looks like the one nation conservative government has been given a powerful, new mandate. to get brexit done. >> boris johnson's conservative party, capturing an absolute majority, winning at least 355 seats. that's the best result for the conservatives since margaret thatcher's landslide win in 1987. there's already plans for leadership changes in the labor party. max foster, good morning. >> reporter: a huge night for boris johnson. he wasn't taken for years in politics. looked like he was on his way out at one point. now, he gets this victory. a type of victory that the conservatives haven't had since margaret thatcher's day.
his campaign message, we spoke about on the program, was get brexit done. he has a mandate to do that. we are leading. it will be a manage withdrawal by the end of january. that's what he promised. we're expecting that to happen. there will be a negotiation process with the e.u. to get a trade deal. but donald trump has stepped in saying the u.s. could get the u.k. a bigger trade deal than the e.u. this has national repuercussion, and you think this might affect the united states. one slight member in the works, may be the scottish nationalists. they campaigned on a referendum on scottish independence, something that boris johnson has ruled out and he's got a problem
there. >> still a rocky road ahead. max foster in london. you saw boris johnson with his dog. he went to the polling station with it. 50,000 people tweeted about dogs at polling stations. this guy showed up. reindeer were at the polling station, a consequence of the timing, just before christmas. let's say it was a very interesting and colorful day in the u.k. >> aren't they supposed to be a-political, the reindeers? >> we don't know who they voted for. >> still. avenfter months of negotiations, president trump has signed off on a phase one trade deal with china. the two have been arguing over specifics. cnn's david culver is live in beijing with the latest. hi, david. >> hey, amara. let's look at this agreement. this includes a delay on tariffs on chinese gods that were scheduled to pick in on sunday. these are consumer goods. the deal also includes reducing
the existing tariffs. that's important because that's the october deal, similar to where we are now, fell apart. the chinese insisted they wanted a bigger rollback on tariffs. the chinese will go forward with that. china will make a return for products. that's big for the base, in particular. and they made the same agreements in the past. the thing is, they have failed to follow through on those. the question is, if they go forward, they will agree to that. all of this does not address the major structural changes to china's economy that trump has been calling for. assuming the phase one goes through, it may be held up before we talk about a phase two or three. especially when we point to what we're hearing today out of beiji beijing. the rhetoric in particular. china's foreign minister, lashing out at the u.s. hear what he had to say.
this almost paranoid behavior, seriously damaging the hard-won foundation of mutual trust between china and the united states, and seriously weakening the united states' own international credibility. coming down hard on the u.s. notab notably, they don't mention president donald trump by name. but this is not speaking positively to this relationship going forward. one positive note we can say, u.s. futures looking upwards and arab nl mark asian marks closed with gains. 2020 democratic hopeful, elizabeth warren, sharpening her attacks. she is calling out pete buttigieg and michakchaekchael . warren took a series of unmistakable shots. the common theme, her rivals' reliance on campaign cash from rich donors, which she says
makes them untrustworthy and not out to help the working class. >> now, unlike some candidates for the democratic nomination, i am not counting on republican politicians having an epiphany and supporting the tax increases on the rich or big business accountability they've opposed under democratic presidents for a generation. i'm not betting my agenda, on the naive hope that if democrats adopt republican critiques of progressive policies or make vague calls or unity, that somehow the hewealthy and well-connected will stand down. >> the debate calendar for 2020, taking shape. cnn and des moines register will hold the iowa debate january 14th, the last debate before the
