4:00 am
it's hell on earth from this molten sparkler and popping and groaning and sometimes violently exploding. >> it shows me the power of god. the power of our earth. this lava bomb came and hit right here. >> some of these fissures are interconnected and spread out many directions across the southeast section of the island. >> this might all disappear. >> it's man versus mother nature. ♪ >> announcer: this is "new day weekend" with victor blackwell and christi paul. >> good morning to you. the breaking news. the stunning pictures out of hawaii where the erupting volg is se volcano, as you heard there, lava bombs and blasting dozens of feet in the air and we are there live in a few minutes. >> after a royal wedding that
4:01 am
captivated the world the newlywedding are set to return this weekend. >> we ask how it is challenging the plolitical satire. the lava spewing into the air and chunks of the flying debris and explosions that sound like jet engines. >> in fact, just moments ago, we got news that the streams of lava have reached the pacific ocean. not only closing down part of a main evacuation route, but potentially creating another hazardous health situation there. cnn's scott mcclain is in pahoa, hawaii. scott, it looks like things are much worse, quite frankly, than they were when we saw you last hour. help us understand what is going on. >> so we have actually moved
4:02 am
locations and let me show you. you mentioned those lava flows that have reached the pacific ocean. i'll show you where they are coming from. these are several fissures that have sort of morphed into one and it looks like giant water fountains but as we know, this isn't water. it's not water that glows in the dark. it is molten lava coming out of the ground. it's amazing to see just how much of it that there is. you hear the explosions in the background and that is from a separate fissure which is maybe half a mile away from where we are that continues to explode and erupt more violently. we are noting that here. with the lava, they are admitting it's turning into a fast flowing stream of lava. you can see it there moving along. just to give you an idea of how much lava has filled in here the last 48 hours we were actually doing a live shot there yesterday and where our shot
4:03 am
would have been, would have been somewhere buries moopting the ll -- amongst the lavr right now. this is going into a valley and when it's all said and done, it will be a little bit of a hill rather than a valley. people here, they are concerned about the lava flow. homes being cut off from help as that lava flow reaches the ocean and cuts off roads. they are also, of course, worried about the fissures that are erupting much more violently and sending lava into people's homes. homes nearby that i showed you last hour and people there are trying to protect them. other people just gathering what they can and trying to get out. as that lava flow continues to move and just hopefully and just hoping i should say that it doesn't divert and reach their home. >> scott, did i hear you right, that where you were just an hour ago is now under lava?
4:04 am
>> no. so where we were live just 48 hours ago. >> oh, 48 hours ago, all right. >> is under lava now. we are talking about it's probably some 10, 12 feet worth of lava and we would have been buried by, you know, several, maybe 50 yards in, at least from what we can tell from this vantage point. i can try to show you here. it's a little bit dark but if you see where some of those hills come up where the lava flow is there is methane gas burning there. from my rough estimation, where we were doing our live shot 48 hours ago would be have that imagine a methane mass is burning there. if we were staying there we would be in trouble. the other thing i should point out, victor, as this lava moves along, it will burn brush. in fact, an evacuation in
4:05 am
another neighborhood i should say earlier today just because those brush fires had gotten out of control and they wanted to make sure that people were out of their homes and they had an escape route if things were to get any worse. >> it's so remarkable to me how fast the lava is moving too. scott, thank you so much. can we just stay on that shot there for a moment while we bring in cnn's allison chinchar? >> just get in tight over scott's left shoulder there on the geyser of lava there. allison, we are looking at amazing pictures coming out of pahoas. can you explain what the jet engine sound it? >> you often here them talk about this is the edge breathing and the lava spewing out of the fissures and intake and air flow going in and out and you're basically hearing mother nature breathing. watching scott's live shot i was even impressed andive seen
4:06 am
hundreds of videos of lava. it looks like a river behind him and i want to talk about that because that is actually key. that is why we now that that one lava flow has made it into the ocean because the consistency of the lava is now changing. prior, it had been slow running almost like pudding if you will. now it is runnier and that is allowing it to move faster. fissure 17 and 18 up on my top screen where scott is located. further south is fissure 20 and 22. they came together and started flowing towards the pacific ocean. they have now entered the pacific ocean. you would think this is great, it takes it off land and away from people. the problem that also creates something called laze. when the lava reaches the ocean and mixes with the salt water and creates steam and the stream is made of hydrochloric acid gas and tiny glass particles so you daytona to be near that area.
4:07 am
the fissures and lava flows, things like that. we also have the concern for the summit of kilauea. two explosive eruptions have taken place the last 24 hours at the summit. not only does ma mean you have the lava and toxic gas. you can see from the observatory from the ash coming down thick throughout much of this area. here is the other thing that poseses a problem. when the volcano erupts it sends lava and toxic gases into the air but also the ash. the main concern here is inhalation for people. this could be incredibly toxic and deadly in high doses. but, also, some of the things that the airport on the big island have been keeping a close eye on is the airplanes because the ash can be a big deal for airplanes as well. here is why. as that ash goes inside of those engines, it melts but you have so much air flow coming in that
4:08 am
it also then rapidly cools down and becomes sticky and sticks to the inside of that engine. but then, unfortunately, that disrupts the air flow. so that is why they are paying very close attention to whether or not they will need to, at some point, cancel or delay and divert flights out of the hilo airport. >> these pictures are just -- they are breath taking and frightening all at the same time. it is something. allison chinchar, thank you so much for the breakdown there. we will keep you posted as scott is there and we will have him with us throughout the morning. ♪ also this morning, texas governor greg abbott is attending a church service in santa fe, texas, where eight students and two teachers were killed there in santa fe. there five of the ten victims
4:09 am
you see there. >> we are getting new information how students sheltered in closets next to the bodies of dead classmates as that teenager fired shots and taunted them from outside. one victim's mother says she thinks that one of the shotgun shells was for her daughter. >> my daughter was going up to my mother, telling my mom for the past four months and my brother that he had been making advances on her and that she finally stood up to him because her younger sister was being bullied in school and she was showing her, look, this is what you do. you got to stand up to him and let him know, no, it's not right. and this is the outcome. you know? i don't -- i don't know what else to say. >> according to official documents, the shooter said he acted alone and spared people he

♪ >> just a view of the highlights from the royal wedding of britain's prince harry to meghan markle now known as the duchess of sussex. this morning, the null l newlyw coming back to -- >> you don't want to get dehydrate on a plane. we don't know much about the
4:16 am
party. they deliberately made and this very private affair and the only thing a few leaks in the britain tabloids and some people went up to london afterwards and carried on. who knows. they might not have been to bed yet. we will check there. the bags under their eyes as they head back to kensington palace today. they are the next engagement really is on tuesday. buckingham palace and garden party and supporting his father and their charitable work and can put their public work ahead of the honeymoon. i think a deliberate message. they are going to throw themselves into the public world. we have seen that already with meghan markle who is on a huge amount of visits before the wedding to know the uk and i think next an international step and come to the united states even for an event in the summer. and then off to the commonwealth as well. so they are going to throw themselves into work.
4:17 am
i'm sure there will be a honeymoon. we don't know where or when. i think they want to keep that a bit quiet. >> understandably so, yes. i want to ask you about something that people noticed yesterday. this empty chair in st. george's chapel there and speculation that was in honor of princess diana. are you hearing anything about that, max? >> reporter: i don't know. there was so much symbolism there. they wouldn't really confirm any of the diana references. we just had to read into into it what we would. i think this is what is interesting here. when i asked people close to the couple, you know, is meghan markle saying something in the ceremony about femininity and diversity and you have to look what they are doing here. all that i could be told they wanted to do things in their own way. and whether there is symbolism people want to take out of that they can do that.vitably
4:18 am
inevitably, so many diana references there and only started talking about it with william the last couple of years and i think probably the chair was symbolic of that but we will never have it confirmed because i think that was between harry and diana. >> max, i got to ask you about this american bishop from chicago who is getting some mixed reviews and mixed responses we asaw there. having gone to black churches my whole life. 13 minutes is how long he spoke. people have spoken 13 minutes after i sneezed. so this didn't seem very long to me. what was the reaction there? >> you know, you're probably referencing the giggling in the church. >> yeah. >> but i think what i will say is, today, i think that choir was, obviously, a big headline
4:19 am
in the united states. it's also a big headline here and i think in a really positive way. people were very surprised to see that in an english church. you know we knew that it was going to happen. but seeing it was a real moment for people here and really embraced as well. these church services, high church services are desperately boring and this was a flash of light and people loved it. when you're talking about the giggling, and i've spoken to a couple of people who were close to the people in the church, it was on harry's side but in reference to a joke the bishop said, you know, you all need to get married and it was in response to the joke, i think, to be fair to them. but people are taking the giggles out of context to say they were giggling at him, you know, and suggesting that was the serious part of the address. i don't think actually that was the case. >> thank you for the clarity, max foster. very good point to make.
4:20 am
>> one question for you, by the way. can i ask you a quick question? >> yes. >> we lost anna stewart and we keep seeing her, you know, eating cakes and drinking tea and we think she has gone awol again. can you find her? >> you are so go at transitions, max. so good. he knows where we are going next. we have found anna and she might have, you know -- >> he is just jealous. >> a little bit of tea or cake. >> the celebration is not over because i don't see any cake in your hand there but i'm sure there is cake all around there. people are still celebrating. what are you seeing where you are? >>. >> reporter: max is a little bit jealous. i was worried that wedding blues would hit the entire nation and a bit of a hangover but not here around windsor. we are just steps away from the
4:21 am
windsor castle and today everybody is enjoying tea and cucumber sandwiches and talking about the highlights and i've been asking what the favorite bits were. lots of analysis on the dress. was it a cool glass of water or was it dull? the american bishop that max is discussing. people absolutely loved to see him. it was such a refreshing moment in what is as max said rather a boring part of a service, normally, i think, in uk weddings. the aqua marine ring given to meghan markle and plenty to discuss here. the locals around here have, you know, had a slightly trying few weeks, i'd say, that have been road closures and all of the potholes are filled and lamp posts painted and trash cans have been replaced with extra secure ones and there have been
4:22 am
100,000 people on their doorstep so i think a slight party to enjoy the fact it might all be over. >> go and get yourself some cake now, an in. >> and some tea. >> anna stewart in windsor, thanks so much. president trump, as we switch gears here, is attacking robert mueller's russia investigation again. next what is he calling the justice department to do now. your company is constantly evolving.

4:28 am
john bolton they might be traeted li treated like libya. the fbi planted an inform apartment inside of trump's campaign. cnn has been told informant that gather some information from trump advisers were not embedded to campaign trump. now it's important to point out that the just department says it's withholding documents related to the informant out of concern for the safety of its source and its ability to recruit future sources. trump and his allies, however, have accused the fbi of political bias and are pressing to get those documents released any way. christi? >> thank you very much, sarah.
4:29 am
appreciate it. >> thank you. the russia probe may be expanding beyond russia, potentially. there are new reports of other countries allegedly hoping to influence the 2016 presidential election in favor of donald trump. now according to "the new york times," donald trump jr. met in just three months before the 2016 election with a man who claimed to represent two arab princes and a media expert was there and a lawyer for trump jr. says nothing came from the second trump tower meeting. but according to one of the reporters who broke the story the relationship didn't end after the election. >> after trump is elected, george nader, working as an adviser for the uae, he's mr. zamle, the israeli social media manipulator owes him a lot of money. maybe $2 million according to some reports. some of that money goes to provide a presentation showing what a big help to the campaign social media was.
4:30 am
so if that campaign -- if that presentation was delivered to the trump campaign as it seems, then here is an offer to help for the campaign and here is a at all of the help we did. >> joining us now is julian water schwab of the governor government ethics. welcome back. >> good morning. >> this is introducing new players here aside from trump tower meeting one in june of 2016, i got the august 2016 meeting where you introduced the saudis and israelis and emirates to help in this campaign. we don't know what the pitch was your obvious concern for agreeing to meet with these representatives is? >> yeah. well, it shows the trump campaign was willing to collude with foreign powers in order to try to win the election. they shouldn't have even had this meeting. i don't care what the pitch was.
4:31 am
and the fact that $2 million changed hands and was paid to somebody who bills himself as a social media manipulator from a foreign country really is deeply concerning. we are talking possible violations of federal election law if it was coordinated with the president. you know, that final link hasn't been established but there is enough smoke here to justify looking into it. the truth is if any other administration was in power and certainly if trump's political rif rival in the last election had won many would be howling and summing people for hearing testimony. i think based on what we have seen the past year and a half, we can be pretty confident that not only will the leadership in congress ignore this, but they will actively try to run interference for him and continue to try to disrupt the investigation. >> you told one of our producers that we are witnessing a betrayal to our people in
4:32 am
congress and it is just absolutely disgusting. interesting that this reporting comes after the release of the transcript from don jr.'s senate testimony. no mention of the meeting there. also no mention of this in the wrap-up or the report that came from house intelligence. another one of these major developments that comes after that. expound on, again, what you're expecting, what you're hoping for from congress. is this just another element that is in this larger saga or do you think this is an action item if not for robert mueller which it likely is, we understand that george nader is cooperating, but from congress? >> yeah. i mean, what i'm examining and what i'm hoping for are two completely different things in this scenario. again, history is just not going to be kind to a congress that has put winning over the interest of the country. they should be deeply concerned with the fact that foreign -- you know, foreign interests were trying to influence our
4:33 am
election. any suggestion by anyone that this is each remotely normal is crazy. in fact, the fbi warned the trump campaign that the russians may try to have a hand in his campaign shortly after he got nominated. that should have put him on notice that any foreign contacts were of concern and the first thing they should have done when they heard from these people is pick up phone and call the fbi. now it's congress' job to find out why they didn't do that and congress should be holding hearings and not the devin nunez hearings are a show to cover for the administration, but serious hearings to get to the bottom of this issue. what they ought to do is pretend for themselves for a minute that hillary clinton is president and go after donald trump with the kind of gusto that not only would we assume they would go after her with, but that we saw them do. turn this into another benghazi hearing. the interference of foreign
4:34 am
influencers in our election is catastrophic and dangerous to our republic. >> we had a commentator on an earlier hour this morning suggesting that what this exposes is the under belly of politics and potentially another campaign might have taken a similar meeting or tried to get the same thing without breaking the law, skirting the law to get as much assistance from foreign governments as possible. do you think this is common, or is this as much of an outlier as the reporting would suggest? >> this is absolutely an outlier. that is a crazy thing to have said. this is not the under belly of politics. this is the under belly of the criminal world. you simply don't do this kind of thing and we have laws on the books. now the truth is the federal election commission has been weak from the start and in its establishment. it's set up with an even number of commissioners on both sides so you have to have at least one party defector to be able to do any kind of meaningful
4:35 am
enforcement, but in recent years it has completely all but ground to a halt in its oversight and that is where there is a gap. we can't trust the normal institutional mechanisms to go after something so abnormal and why we have a balance of powers and congress is supposed to be a check on the power of executive and supposed to be capable offing looking into the sitting president's activities as he tried to become the sitting president. >> walter shaub, good to have you. tune in to cnn this morning at 9:00 a.m. for "state of the union" with jake tapper. cartoons like this one, we will show you here. has the trump era changed his craft? we will ask the cartoonist next. in 5th grade. we got married after college.
