2:00 am
u.s. intelligence officials believe terror groups may have improved on their bomb making skills using every day electronics. electronics to hide bombs.
2:01 am
>> when you are given immunity that means you've committed a crime. >> now he's asking for immunity and the lawyer for former national security agency michael flynn says his client has a story to tell. also -- violence on the streets. protesters show their anner w nh paraguay's president. i'm natalie allen. >> i'm george howell. newsroom starts right now. we begin with a cnn exclusive. u.s. intelligence officials believe isis and other terror groups found new ways to hide bombs and laptops. >> big league terrorists have testing their abilities to steal airport screening devices.
2:02 am
cnn has learned the intelligence on this helped prompt the recent u.s. ban on large electronic devices in the cabins of certain u.s. bound flights from some airports in the middle east and africa. barbara starr has more. >> reporter: u.s. officials have grown creasingly concerned about the threats against aviation that they are seeing, not just from isis but also al qaeda in syria and al qaeda in yemen. u.s. intelligence and law enforcement agencies believe that isis and other terror groups have developed innovaty wa -- innovative ways to plant devices. the concern is heightened but it's suggested terrorists have obtained sophisticated airport equipment to test how well the bombs are concealed. cnn learned this new
2:03 am
intelligence was a significant part of the decision earlier this month to ban laptops, tablets, and other electronic devices from the passenger cabins of planes flying directly to the united states from ten middle eastern and northern african airports. demanding they be stored in checked luggage. >> elevated intelligence shows terrorists are targeting aviation and we're trying to undermine their attacks. >> reporter: officials have told cnn there was credible and specific intelligence that isis would try to attack aviation assets and a hint from a top u.s. commander about why the accelerated effort on the ground in syria against the group. >> there's an imperative to get isolation in place around
2:04 am
raqqah. because our intelligence feeds tell us that there is a significant exalternatival operation attacks planning. >> reporter: al qaeda's affiliate yemen has for years been active trying to target commercial airliners destined to the u.s., looking for ways for bombs that contain little or no metal content including hiding explosives in the batteries of electronic devices like laptops. and in 2016 a wake up call. when a laptop bomb according to somalia authorities was used to blow a hole in this somalia passenger jet. the plane landed safely despite the attack claimed by the al qaeda flait affiliate al shabaa. they removed parts of the dvd drive. cnn was given a statement noting
2:05 am
why they won't discuss specific intelligence they continue to monitor all the threats that they see and that they will change security procedures as they see fit. barbara starr, cnn, the pentagon. joining now to talk more about this is bob barry, cnn intelligence and security analyst. always good to have you with us, bob. first of all, given the new information we have, how significant is the risk? >> we're missing a lot of things in this report. but i would say they are closer to being able to get on an airplane with a small amount of explosives or a chemical mix and with one of these bombs placed in the right position and that's against the skin of the airplane, against the fuselage they are closer to being able to knock out an airplane. >> this new information suggests that they are able now to use some of the screening equipment
2:06 am
that's in airports. bob, i don't know if our viewers around the world know this but that was your job to build and test, to understand these bombs back, you know, during your time at the cia. explain to us the level of sophistication when using the exact equipment we see in airports today. >> well, that's exactly it, george. they were very good to begin with. these are engineers. there's a saudi we know of who has got along very well in making airplane bombs. it's technology that does go back 40 years. i constructed these things, groups that got past american security, tsa security. this is very doable. and we do that they have been testing these things whether it's in somalia where a hole was blown in a plane's fuselage. the plane was low enough that it didn't break up. they also are understanding how to get a chemical mix on
2:07 am
airplanes. which are very hard to detect. again, detect, even tsa equipment can't detect it because they don't emit. >> i traits. they detect bombs they pick up traces of nitrate when you go through a scanner. this is a genuine threat and i think they have imposed this ban on computers and ipads and the rest of it for very good reason. it doesn't surprise me they are getting better at this. and more determined as well. >> cnn intelligence and security analyst bob behr. there's a new twist into the investigations of russia's interference in the 2016 atlantic city. michael flynn wants testimony. he'll testify if he is guaranteed he won't be
2:08 am
prosecuted. ine a tweet the u.s. president donald trump appeared to encourage flynn immunity deal but later walked out of the room when a reporter pressed him on it. >> thank you, everybody. you're going to see so very, very strong results very, very quickly. thank you very much. >> were you trying to tell the justice department to grant immunity to michael flynn? were you trying to do that? was that your intention, mr. president? mr. president, was that your intention. was that your intention, sir? >> flynn's conditional offer to testify done appear to have any takers. law enforcement sources tell cnn there's no indication the fbi wants to talk to him again or give him any kind of immunity. for more on thisory, jim acosta reports. >> any comment on michael flynn, mr. president? >> reporter: president trump biting his tongue on michael flynn's request for immunity before testifying on questions about campaign contacts with the
2:09 am
russians. flynn's attorney explained his client's position in a gamt. general flynn certainly has a story to tell and he wants very much to tell it should the circumstances permit. >> is the white house concerned that general flynn has damaging information about the president, his aides, his associates about what occurred during the campaign with respect to russia? >> no. >> reporter: sean spicer said the president is encouraging flynn to testify. spicer tried to make the case the real story is the president's allegation that mr. trurp and his team were unlawfully surveilled. >> it sound like you are just as the president is alleging that the obama administration conducted unlawful surveillance on the trump campaign and trump transition team. >> as i said in a assignment i believe that we, what has been provide and will be provided to members of both committees i think should further their investigation. >> reporter: but the ranking
2:10 am
democrat on house to intelligence committee adam schiff who was invited to review materials today insisted flynn's proposal is significant saying we should first acknowledge what a grave step it is for former national security adviser to the president asking for immunity. lawmakers from both parties are balking at providing immunity to flynn. >> i don't think it's a witch00. it's mysterious to me why general flynn is out there saying he wants immunity. >> reporter: the concern echoed time and again could interfere with an fbi investigation. >> there's no way immunity would be granted and granted by the department of justice if and only if it provided a bigger fish. >> lock her up. >> reporter: then the question of hypocrisy during the campaign
2:11 am
when legal questions were aimed at hillary clinton both flynn -- >> when you are given immunity that means you committed a crime. >> reporter: then candidate clinton mocked the idea of immu immunity. >> we'll go to our political reporter in london. good to have you with us. let's first start by talking about flynn seeking immunity. we heard a couple of sound bites in jim acosta's piece. the president is encouraging the immunity deal the same president on the campaign trail saying anyone seeking immunity must be guilty of a crime. michael flynn said the same thing as well. how would you characterize the optics. is this harmful for this administration? >> it's definitely harmful. we're in a situation where we have more questions than
2:12 am
answers. a president going about an ongoing investigation in an one orthodox way tweeting he should be granted that immunity and testify and, you know, tell everyone what he knows about the alleged meddling of russians in the campaign. as you said and as we heard moments ago they have the same people, flynn and trump saying that if you ask for immuneilty you're probably guilty about something. so the question is here aside from the hypocrisy why is flynn's lawyer putting out such a public statement asking for immunity for his client instead of going to the doj and sharing the information they have and agreeing to something a bit more privately to take this investigation forward. of course now flynn is alone although the white house and sean spicer yesterday said, you know, they are still behind him and still think flynn should get the story out there.
2:13 am
but he's been fired. he's alone and he has some grievances. this could take some very interesting twists. >> you're right to point 0 that out. important to point the context that the press secretary sean spicer did say that, you know, when it comes to immunity this is different, basically saying this would be whatever he has to do to get that story out. let's talk about what's happening abroad on the other side of the pond the president's secretaries of defense and state are abroad. they are walking back many words that the president used to describe nato and his description of improved relations with russia, his hopes for that. is the tension between the west and russia now worse or better than it was the previous administration in your point of view? >> reporter: well, i think it's definitely coming because russia and vladimir putin hoping things would have improved especially considering trump's statements on nato being obsolete on
2:14 am
possibly recognizing russia annexation of crimea. you have tillerson and mattis coming over here to europe and saying they support nato and basically u tu-turning from the president's interest. you have this investigation in the u.s. about the meddling of the russians in the campaign. so you got the u.s. distancing itself from russia and on the other hand coming back to europe and saying you believe in nato, we have to take this forward, it's not obsolete. everybody has to contribute their military spending up to 2% to nato. the alliance is still strong. russia is being pushed further away and this is not what putin is hoping for when trump got elected. >> the many questions vong chairman nunes and the house intelligence committee, is there a sense that this investigation can to be done fairly and
2:15 am
thoroughly given all the questions that are coming from this committee? >> reporter: that's a very good question. i'm afraid i don't have the answer to that because it's very confusing. nunes apparently got his information from the white house, then he went to brief the press about it and then went back to the white house to brief the president on what he learned from the white house but he also said he never received that information from the white house. it's completely confused and, you know, probably democrats don't trust nunes being in a position to be impartial about this and now apparently adam schiff has learned and has m the same access to documents new fess reviewed. too early to tell. he's probably a little compromised. >> thank you so much for your insight. still ahead on cnn newsroom protesters were outraged in p a everyone raguay. they set the congress on fire. we'll explain why they are so
2:16 am

2:19 am
the ruling party for trying to pass the law to allow the president to run for another term. >> reporter: the demonstrators stormed the congressional building and set it on fire. there were also clashes with police on the streets surrounding the building. the violence stems from a decision by the ruling party to create an alternative senate with the purpose of passing a law that would allow current president to seek re-election which is forbidden under the current constitution. a group of 25 senators started holding sessions for that purpose. the 45 member senate requires a simple majority of 23 votes to pass leverage jays meaning the rogue senators have two more votes than required. meanwhile protesters indicated they will stop the violent demonstrations once they get a commitment from the president that he will stop seeking re-election. in a statement issued by late friday the president said democracy is not attained
2:20 am
through violence built living under a dictatorship. the president a military officer took power after a coup and ruled the country for the next three and a half decades. let's bring in lawrence blair on the phone with us. so one of your most recent tweets said it looked like a war zone. you told us things have calmed down a bit but you were concerned that protests could pick up again. what's the situation there right now? >> reporter: yeah. i think it's still hard to say what will happen today. i think right now, the time here is 25 past 5:00. as paraguayans wake up and take a look what happened last night we could see more anger.
2:21 am
i just mentioned to you right now the death of a young member of the opposition party in the party's headquarters seemingly at the hands of police a few hours ago and that, in particular, will really put fuel on the fire with public outrage right now. i think a lot will depend on how the opposition party, in particular the liberal party chooses to manage this situation. i think if there's a degree of coordination, if the liberal party calls off its supporters and tries to have a cohesive elective movement we could be seeing some fairly large protests. it's the weekend which means a fair amount of people are readily available to come and join those protests, which i think we might see today. but, you know, just in the past two hours or so from downtown
2:22 am
things are fairly quiet right now and no signs as yet that protests are beginning to pick up in a fury again. >> for our viewers in the u.s. and around the world who may want to follow your reporting the twitter is blair492. you say paraguay and politics like life come at you fast talking about the fact that there have been so many people injured, the number of casualties still unknown. help our viewers explain the sense of anger that people have with this young democracy given this very delicate issue of re-election. >> reporter: yeah. that tweet was mentioning the fact that 18 hours or so ago the president was tweeting about a large investment conference which is happening this weekend, various presidents of central
2:23 am
bank, investors, investment types have come to talk about the country and talk how well in many ways it's doing. i think that's been the focus of the government. it's really sort of trying to improve paraguay's image to the rest of the world and done that very successfully. the problem is the government hasn't explained and really convinced the public that the amendment in favor of re-election is necessary. there's been very little communication from the parts of the presidency in the past week. he's been hunkered down in the presidential palace without actually coming out and saying this is why we're trying to change constitution. and there are, there are arguments in favor of re-election and there are, there's a degree of consensus that perhaps it might be a good thing to change the constitution
2:24 am
to allow for re-election but if done through perhaps a more deliberate process, constitutional reform rather than this quite quick amendment which many see it as making a quick change without consulting anyone. >> so many protesters frustrated by that quick change. again lighting the congressional building on fire. lawrence blair on the phone for us from asuncion. we turn now to venezuela. both the president and country's national defense counsel are asking the supreme court to review a ruling that critics say amount to a government coup tat. maduro vowed to step in after the attorney general slammed that decision. >> translator: as the head of state, invested with authority and constitutional power, this
2:25 am
impasse will be resolved in the quickest and best way possible. we will hand over to our people another constitutional victory through dialogue, throughing the heights of politics, through the heights of the state. >> some are wondering whether venezuelans are moving to a dictatorship. this ruling sparked violent clashes in the capital. they are having a lot of economic problems already in venezuela and now this. but mr. maduro is calling for dialogue with types. let's talk about weather. powerful tornado caused some pretty bad damage to homes near virginia beach, virginia. >> you're following that for us. a stormy week. >> we caught that moment or some did on their cell phone with that funnel cloud dropped from the sky in virginia beach and we want to take to you that foot skag so you can see that moment. according to the virginia beach fire department 50 homes were damaged when this funnel cloud actually reached the surface. 25 of these homes were
2:26 am
moderately damaged. unfortunately 12 of the homes were deemed condemned or completely destroyed. so you can just imagine what this means for the residents of virginia beach. very difficult morning to wake up and to have to clean up after a dramatic event like that. let's talk about the same storm system as it continues to race up the east coast. but the further north in latitude it travels we start to see temperatures drop and we see that precipitation change over from liquid equivalent to frozen variety and we have a full fledge snowstorm taking place across parts of new england including boston where you want to double check your flight if you're flying in or out of the international airport there. you have a good six inches of heavy wet snow on the tarmac. there are around six and a half million americans under a winter storm warning. another six and a half million americans under a winter weather advisory thanks to this system
2:27 am
moving out. it's still part of the same storm system that brought severe weather to the mid-atlantic states or the virginia beach area. the footage you saw just a moment ago. it will exit the region by later this afternoon and evening. you still have several hours of rain/snow mix along the coastal areas of maine and into upstate vermont, new york and new hampshire as well. here's a look at the storm. we're just tallying these up. three confirmed tornadoes. 16 hail reports. five reports of wind damage. now we focus our attention on the potential for severe weather today across sferl texas but look at sunday. this is when things ramp up all the ingredients coming together. houston, you have a moderate risk of severe weather. some of these tornadoes could be particularly dangerous. let's take you to juneau, alaska. this is an avalanche that fell from the mountain slopes, it's in a precarious position this particular town or city.
2:28 am
i've been there and seen it with my own eyes. the mountain slopes very sleep and unstable snow pack like this falling from the sky. you can see the images that are left behind. the most stunning part no one was injured but the avalanche stopped 30 feet from a neighborhood. you see everybody running right there. all right, glad everyone is okay. thank you very much. newsroom will be right back right after this. it's my decision ito make beauty last. roc® retinol, started visibly reducing my fine lines and wrinkles in one week.

2:31 am
it is 5:31 on the u.s. east coast in atlanta georgia. welcome to our viewers. you're watching cnn newsroom.
2:32 am
i'm george howell. >> i'm natalie allen. here are our top stories. terrorists may have found a new way to get bombs on to passenger airplanes without detection. cnn has learned that u.s. intelligence and law enforcement agencies believe isis and other terror groups have improved techniques to hide explosives in laptops and other electronic devices to evade airport security screening. in venezuela, heated protests on the streets as that nation's president says he'll ask the court to review its decision to strip congress of power. the court's ruling that it was assuming the functions of the opposition led national assembly sparked condemnation from around the world. nicolas maduro offered to step in after the attorney general slammed the court on friday. officials tell cnn there's no indication the fbi will grant my tale flynn immunity in exchange for his testimony on russia. his lawyer made that request after saying his client had a story to tell. the white house appears unphased
2:33 am
urging flynn to get his story out. on friday the top democrat of the house intelligence committee was given access to the same documents that were shown earlier to the committee chairman devin nunes. that sparked a new controversy for the trump administration. >> reporter: house intelligence committee ranking member amendment schiff adam schiff at 1600 pennsylvania avenue to review information offered up by the white house. schiff said he was told the materials he reviewed were the same that house intelligence chairman devin nunes reviewed over a week ago. meantime chairman devin nunes faces continued fallout with new revelations about what he knows and how exactly he learned that information. first reported in the "new york times" a u.s. official now confirms to cnn white house staffers are believed to be two
2:34 am
individuals involved. but still unknown whether these two white house staffers were involved directly in showing nunes the documents when he was on white house grounds last week. as he looked at the intelligence materials that he claims showed trump conversation aides were picked up in intelligence collection. nunes remaining adamant. a soeksman saying chairman nunes will not confirm or deny speculation about his source's identity and won't respond to speculation from anonymous sources. the white house staffers involvement fueling more questions about the independence of nunes investigation from the white house. >> i'm firmly convinced that the president and his aides conco concocted this and drew nunes init and he became advocate and a better to what i think is an absolute fabrication. >> reporter: even more criticism of the credibility of nunes' claim that the information was
2:35 am
brought to him by a whistle blower. >> to me this looks like nothing like a whistle blower case. again, i think the white house needs to answer this instead a case where they wish to effectively launder information through our committee to avoid the true source of the information. >> reporter: the white house attempting to swat down the criticism. >> what de, what he saw and who he met with was 100% proper. we all found out, you, me, everyone else that's coming down here after he held a press conference with your colleagues to say he was coming down here based on stuff he found that didn't have to do with russia, that a whistle blower source gave him. >> reporter: paul ryan is facing increasing questions about whether he stands by the chairman. a spokeswoman says the speaker doesn't know the source. the chairman has the speaker's full confidence. >> at least one person, one trump official seems to take russia's these meddling very
2:36 am
seriously, the u.s. defense secretary james mattis. he met with his british counter part on friday in london and said it was mucking around in the elections. he criticized russia but said nato allies had to do more. here's nic robertson with that report. >> reporter: his first visit to nato hq as secretary of state, rex tillerson came to deliver a clear message. allies must pay their way to meet the 2% gdp defense spend threshold. >> we have three important areas we want to talk about. first is ensuring that nato has all the resources financial and otherwise. >> reporter: a few00 miles away james mattis on his first trip to london as u.s. secretary of defense also offering a correct divisive to president trump's assertion that nato is obsolete.
2:37 am
>> the points i would make is nato stand united the transatlantic bond sue nietd. >> reporter: in london the joined up message received loud and clear. the uk one of only four nato allies meeting that 2% threshold. >> secretary mattis and i have agreed that others must now raise their game. and those failing to meet the 2% commitment so far should at least agree to year-on-year real terms increases. >> reporter: the mattis/tillerson coordination belies what many see as the chaos of trump's administration so far on russia both secretaries also joining forces to contradict trump's early warmth towards putin. >> russia's violations of international law are now a matter of record. >> we want to obviously have a discussion around nato's posture here in europe most particularly
2:38 am
eastern europe in response to russia's aggression in ukraine and elsewhere. >> in two months president trump will be here for a nato leader summit. secretary tillerson has been stressing allies they'd to make their financial commitments clear before then. so he said trump's visit can be quota success. he didn't say what the alternative would be. nic robertson, cnn, nato headquarters, belgium. we'll find out what russia thinks of all of this. first of all many russians are bristling at the treatment they are getting from the american government or public. listen to this voice mail. think about the date today which the russian ministry of foreign affairs put together to punch back. >> translator: you have reached the russian embassy. your call very important to us. to use the services of russia
2:39 am
press two. to request election interference press three and wait until the next election campaign. please note that all calls are recorded for quality improvement and training purposes. >> the message you get when you call up the government. matthew chance is here. i guess we should say lol russia on that one. >> reporter: yeah. the attempt to sort of laugh off the very serious allegations, of course, that russia has been facing for the past several months regarding its actions and its alleged interference in u.s. political process and attempts to manipulate the outcome of that presidential process. of course allegations that they categorically deny, turning to humor as a way of side stepping it. of course it's april fools' day and obviously an attempt to
2:40 am
contribute to that. people, though, won't be laughing in the united states, of course, where there is a very serious investigation under way both in the house of representatives and in the senate to look at the collusion allegedly between u.s. officials and the russians in a run up to those presidential elections and that's something that's as i say deeply serious and is of great concern. a matter of great frustration to people, to officials here in russia. they also see it just as trump does as a witch-hunt as something that the media has perpetrated and pushed forward and as they call it fake news. it's something that they've categorically denied. yet it is something that continues to have traction in u.s. politics. >> absolutely. and much more traction this week and then we heard the defense secretary traveling abroad say russia is mucking around or has mucked around in the u.s.
2:41 am
election. we also heard from vladimir putin directly on what he thinks. >> yeah. putin has been relatively tight lipped when it comes to answering these allegations of interference in the u.s. presidential election. he broke that is i lens for the first time since the inauguration of trump a few days ago when he said read my lips no. we did not interfere with the u.s. presidential election. that's the message we've been getting repeatedly from kremlin officials, his spokesperson, other people in the russian government as well. we have to remember that russians are frustrated because they believe that the trump administration was going a positive for the relationship between washington and moscow. donald trump as candidate spoke about the potential of recognizing crime squa as being a legitimate part of russia. crimea was annexed in 2014. he spoke about cooperating with russia in the field of international terrorism
2:42 am
particularly in the war in syria. he criticized natural squo for being obsolete. all of this was music to the kremlin's ears. finally they thought there was a u.s. president that saw the world from the same position, same point of view as they had. but none of that, of course has come to pass. if anything the relationship between russia and the united states, moscow and washington has become much worse than it was before. >> they would like to get on with it but this thing looks like it's entrenched as the investigation continues here and takes lots of left turns and right turns and accusations. you were saying to us, matthew, also that russia kind of likes how messy this issue looks for this new administration in washington. >> well there's an element of the russian attitude towards this which does see it in that way. there's that frustration. it's very real. the frustration i was just describing.
2:43 am
there's a part of the russian establishment as well and russian people that look at this circus that's playing out, unfolding in the united states, this political circus, and it makes them think well maybe the russian system isn't so bad. maybe it is more stable. maybe it is less prone to this kind of chaotic politics. and, indeed, that may have been the intention of the russian authorities when they backed at least morally backed donald trump and his campaign for the presidency. they liked to see the west, western institutions in a state of flux because it weakens their strategic rival but also it makes them look in comparison some what more stable, somewhat more preferable to the alternative. >> interesting perspective on that one. matthew chance for us in moscow. no april fooling around here from our side. still ahead here on newsroom

eu leaders warn of difficult talks over britain's plan to leave. but they are offering the uk an on live branch. we'll explain as newsroom continues.

2:46 am
2:47 am
welcome back. the european union is warning britain it will officially stand by its principles as it laid out its negotiating for brexit. >> talks on britain quitting the eu will be difficult, complex and even confrontational. >> reporter: leaders are saying they are not going to be punitive about the brexit process it's punishing enough. at the same time guidelines that
2:48 am
they released on friday make it very clear they intend to be in the driver's seat especially when it comes to the organization, the order of the brexit negotiations. now the uk has made it clear that it wants to negotiate its future relationship with the eu in parallel to the actual withdrawal. today president of the european council saying that won't happen. the withdrawal will be negotiated first which includes such thorny issues as budgetary issues and fate of citizens living within tuck. once they determine they made sufficient progress in those areas that's when they will move on to discuss a framework for the future relationship. keep in mind the clock is ticking. two quarters is not a lot of time to get all of this done. while eu leaders are saying they want a deal, that that is what they were working towards, at the same time they are preparing for the possibility of no deal. as you likely know scottish
2:49 am
