to save 30% on all the medications we carry. so go directly to petmeds.com now. every semi-automatic weapon used in the ter rost attack on friday. will be banned in this country. >> new zealand prime minister announces sweeping changes to the country's gun laws. as the nation repairs for more funerals from friday's ddly mass shooting. a stunning claim about what he wants to happen with the mueller report. and after two deadly plane crashes u.s. justice department issues subpoenas in a criminal investigation into boeing 737 max passenger jets. welcome to our viewers joining us here in the united states.
12:01 am
of course around the world. i'm rosemary church. this is cnn "newsroom." new zealand prime minister says history chapged on march 15 and the country's gun laws will too. less than a week after the mass shootings killed 50 people. announcing a ban on all assault style semi-automatic rifles. the country is grieving and burying the dead. more funerals are taking place thursday. and a mass burial is expected on friday. we do want to bring in cnn ivan watson. joining us live. ivan, the most significant part of this weapons ban is it came so swiftly. less than a week after the deadly terror attack. and it's immediate. how is this going to work?
12:02 am
>> that's, it's immediate. that's one way of putting it. it's comprehensive. listen to what the prime minister had to say. >> today i'm announcing that new zealand will ban all military style semi-automatic weapons. we will also ban all assault rifles. we will ban all high capacity magazines. we will ban all parts with the ability to convert any other type of firearm into a military style semi-automatic weapon. we will ban parts that cause a firearm to generate semi-automatic or close to automatic gunfire. in short, every semi-automatic weapon used in the terrorist attack on friday will be banned in this country.
12:03 am
>> so in other words, as the police commissioner put it. up until 3:00 this afternoon, if you were in possession of one of the weapons and you were a licensed gun owner, as of 3:00 p.m. that gun that firearm if it falls into the new categories is illegal. however, they're not going to arrest people who have them. or fining them. there's fwoing to be an amnesty and transition period. authorities have been urging gun owners to voluntarily surrender their weapon. there will be an online form that will come active this weekend for people to register the weapons. to return them. with the police. and they have announced a plan for a buy back. a buy back that could cost in the area of between 70 and $140 million u.s. for people to give the weapons
12:04 am
back. there will be exemptions as well for hunters. for farmers. for pest control. but one of the measures that clearly want to do is limit the number of rounds that a given weapon can fire. and thus make it far potentially less lethal. i'll add one last point. that the suspect behind what he's accused of the deadliest terrorist attack in new zealand modern history, he was a licensed gun owner in new zealand. all the weapons he purchased he acquired through legal means. the authorities say he had modified some of the weapons. to make them illegal under the preexisting rules. all of that kind of thing is now illegal and banned by the new order. >> this ban on the amnesty and the buy back program sounding similar to the australia. in the wake of the 1996 massacre.
12:05 am
i want to talk about how bold this move is. it's one that has been commended here in the united states. with democratic presidential candidate bernie sanders tweeting this is what real action to stop gun violence looks like. we must follow the lead, take on the nra and ban the sale and distribution of assault weapons in the united states. and then this is what democrat tweeted. >> sandy hook happened six years ago. and we can't en get the senate to hold a vote on universal background checks. christ church happened and within days new zealand acted to get weapons of war out of the consumer market. this is what leadership looks like. why is this such a reluctance to take on the gun lobby here in the united states? and show some leadership on the sorts of issues. particularly the number of mass shootings we witness in this
12:06 am
country. >> look, in the u.s. everybody knows that there's the second amendment. and gives americans the right to bear arms. there's a very entrenched lobby in favor of the right to have guns. and the u.s. unfortunately tragically has become the type of mass shootings that happen there almost a monthly basis. it happened down the road from where i grew up in the u.s. at the sandy hook elementary school. babies were mowed down by an american carrying a semi-automatic weapon. here new zealand has never experienced violence on this scale before. there was opposition in the past to new gun control legislation. the deputy prime minister was on record after the orlando shooting in the u.s. speaking out against this. he's in support of the new gun
12:07 am
safety regulations which suggest that the scale of the atrocity last friday was such that it has built almost over night consensus if a dramatic change in the gun ownership laws in this country. even though there's a massive amount of the firearms in this population. between 1.5 million guns under a country of 5 million people. i don't know how many of the firearms fall in the category that are banned. and it maybe too early to see whether or not there will be an organized opposition. certainly the circumstances here look dramatically different from the hot button and very contentious debate in the u.s. that continues to swirl around the issue and we have already seen politicians in the u.s. jumping on what the new zealand government is doing. to try to set some kind of example for their own country. and their own situation.
12:08 am
>> we'll watch to see what resistance there is in new zealand. and the hours ahe. no doubt a lot of debate on this very topic here in the united states. thank you so much. for your live report. appreciate it. >> and we have exclusive cnn polling on how americans feel about impeachment and the russia probe. it shows 36% say president trump should be impeached. that's down 7 points from december. following house speaker nancy pelosi saying the move would be divisive. the poll shows 48% approve of how special counsel is conducting the russia probe. and a massive 87% say the mueller report should be made public. now despite trashing the probe, even the president claims he wouldn't mind if the findings are released. reporting from the white house.
12:09 am
>> reporter: for the first time president trump claiming he wants the world to see special counsel mueller's impending report. >> let it come out. let people see it. that's up to the attorney general. >> that coming right before he returned to his usual litany of complaints about the investigation. first suggesting mueller's report is coming as a surprise. >> it's interesting that a man out of the blue just writes a report. 63 million votes. and now somebody writes a report. it's ridiculous. i want to see the report. >> then attacking mueller hils. claiming mueller was denied a job at the fbi. the day before his appointment as special counsel. >> i told him he wouldn't be working at the fbi. then the following day they get him for this. i don't think people get it. >> mueller not his only target. trump launching attacks against kellyanne conway's husband.
12:10 am
conservative attorney george conway. after he questioned trumps mental fitness and claimed he has personality disorders. >> he's a whack job. no question about it. i don't know him. i think he's doing a tremendous dissefs to a wonderful wife. kelly ann is a wonderful woman. >> going further on twitter. often referred to as mr. kellyanne conway. is very jealous of his wife's success and angry i with her help didn't give hip the job he desperately wanted. george's response the president is extremely juvenile. and boorish. kellyanne conway taking the president's side. saying you think he shouldn't respond when somebody a non-medical professional accuses him of having a mental disorder? she should take that sitting down? speaking to the "washington post" tuesday her husband says the stinging president is therapeutic. the incompetence it's maddening
12:11 am
to watch. the tweeter is the way to get it out of the way so i can get it off my chest so i don't end up screaming at her about it. in an interview well before the latest dust up. kellyanne conway pointed out her husband was once a trump supporter. >> george was so excited. crying with joy in his maga hat. on election night. and so in that way, he's changed. he's changed his opinion. on i guess matters or the president the presidency. i haven't. donald trump hasn't. >> here at the white house officials are on high alert for the mueller report to be delivered any day. the white house lawyers expect to preview whatever the attorney general gives to congress to have this opportunity to assert executive privilege. democrats on the hill particularly democratic congressman nadler who over sees the house judiciary committee are pushing back on that.
12:12 am
saying the white house gave up its opportunity to assert executive privilege because it cooperated with mueller. the white house says that's not the case. it didn't need to because mueller is within the executive branch. this is a preview of the political battle to come with the report is delivered. >> president trump is intensifying his attack on the late senator john mccain. he restarted his feud with mccain who died last year after battling brain cancer. he continued his attack on tuesday during a joint news conference with the visits leader from brazil. and on wednesday the president who had multiple defermentings to avod the draft during the vietnam war lashed out again at mccain. a man who spent a lifetime serving his country. encolluding five years as a prisoner of war. >> i have to be honest.
12:13 am
i have never liked him much. it hasn't been for me. i've really probably never will. but there's certain reasons for john mccain received the fake and phony dossier. he said two hours before he was voting to repeal and replace. he went thumbs down. mccain didn't get the job done for a great vet and the va. we're in a war. in the middle east. that mccain pushed so hard. >> scott lucas is professor of the international politics at university of birmingham. also founder and editor of ea world view. he joins us now from birmingham. good to have you with us. >> excellent morning. >> for days now, the president of the united states has been attacking one of the country's greatest war heros. the late senator john mccain.
12:14 am
is this about distracting us from other issues or is this something else going on? >> i think john mccain's daughter summed it up earlier this week. she wrote the late senator lives rent free inside trumps head. that is in part because donald trump blames mccain for supporting the russia investigation of mueller. he blames mccain for not repealing obamacare. and i think most importantly he is threatened by mccain. seven months after the senators death. trump still sees a man who is lauded for honor and integrity. some part of trump realizes many people find him being a man of honor. and so he lashes out. even as you noted there the fact that john mccain showed the highest sacrifice by serving five and a half years as a pow in vietnam. while trump never stepped foot inside the country during that war. >> the president is not only
12:15 am
obsessing about the late senator mccain. he can't stop feuding with the husband of his senior aide. another distraction? or is something else going on. why are we seeing these sorts of feuds these obsessions going on? >> would you like to be at dinner at the conway household? donald trump is facing the claims from george conway. that trump is a narcissist and unstable. possibly with a personality disorder. kellyanne conway's job because she runs a pr agency. her client is trump. she unwittingly revealed the source of the discomfort when she said her husband george was a former trump supporter. because george conway is not a even former trump supporters in washington and beyond are worried that this president is
12:16 am
unstable. that he causes damage with each and every statement. and i can see why they have the concern. >> of course while all of this plays out. president trump says he wants mueller's russia probe to be made public. we all seem to think it's about to come out. we don't know that. that's not what he said in the past. why the change of heart? >> because it's an all out offensive to trash the mueller report. what you saw yesterday in the extraordinary statement was just the continuation of it. it doesn't matter if it comes out next week or month. or during the summer. the white house is now going today by day try to tell americans you should have no faith. not only in the report. no faith in the man. and when you have donald trump making this non-sense statement that somehow the mueller investigation is a threat to 63 million american voters. that's the real target. or when trump repeats the non-sense that mueller and all
12:17 am
his team are democrats. involved in a deep state plot against him. it is part of the go on the offensive, do not defend against the report. and fact of the matter is is that we know it is having some effect. you cited the polls which say more than half of americans now think the mueller report is a witch hunt. no evidence of that. more than half of americans believe that because they get that from the white house day in and out. the white house wants to suppress the report. they don't want it to see the light of day. if the details of the report are laid before the american public and show there was illegal behavior, then that is what the trump card is. and trump doesn't want that to be played sfwl interesting that mueller's approval rating has gone up and people do want to see that report. now the president does, we'll see whether we actually do. thank you so much for joining
12:18 am
us. appreciate it. >> thank you. >> let's take a short break. still to come theresa may under pressure to get her brexit deal through parliament. and might grant her an extension with one major condition. plus days after boeing 737 max airplanes were fwrounded around the world, u.s. investigators issued a slew of subpoenas looking to learn more about how the plane was given the okay to fly. we're back in a moment. pardon the interruption but this is big! now with t-mobile get the samsung galaxy s10e included with unlimited data for just $40 bucks a month

12:22 am
british prime minister turned on uk lawmakers blaming the entire brexit mess on their indecisiveness. with eight days until they leave the eu. may is headed back to brussels to ask for a three month delay. that will only work if the british parliament passes her brexit deal. which they have rejected twice. now she's appealing to the public to urge lawmakers into action. >> this delay is a matter of great personal regret. for me. and of this i am absolutely sure
12:23 am
you the public have had enough. you're tired of the fighting, tired of political games and procedural riles. tired of mps talking about nothing else but brexit. when you have real concerns about our children's schools, national health service, knife crime. you want this stage of the brexit process to be over and done with. i agree. i'm on your side. >> theresa may there. correspondents covering this story akros europe. phil black in london. and bell is live from brussels. so phil, the british prime minister attacking lawmakers. an interesting strategy. she wants their support frs brexit deal. what could be the ramifications? >> you're right. she's never considered especially skilled in
12:24 am
persuasion. now at this last stage of the process she's not pretending anymore. she's scolding and blaming and shaming members of parliament in the hope they will swing behind the brexit deal which they have rejected twice. accusing them of nasal gauging. speaking to the people. and saying i'm on your side. deliver what you voted for. it's parliament that is getting in the way. the problem with this of course, is that it appears to ab solve here of blame. many people here really believe it is the prime minister's leadership. her style and competence and what they consider to be her flawed policy. unwillingness to listen and compromise. these are the things that they believe are responsible for the entire brexit mess. and the very last minute nature of the panic you'll see here in west minister next week.
12:25 am
and so it's possible this risky strategy could in the event in the final event per happen cost the support rather than win it over. at this stage it seems the prime minister feels she has nothing to lose. >> that's the way it looks. let's go to you in brussels. she is now asking for an extension. from the eu. so she can get the brexit deal through parliament. how likely is it that she'll get that extension if she can't get support for her deal? >> all the indications are that the eu would be willing to grant the united kingdom an extension for the limited period in order to allow it to organize an orderly brexit. that's the message we're receiving as we head into the beginning of the summit. european leaders expected to arrive here this afternoon. in order to discuss that. not just the if of an extension but the how. of course we know theresa may is asking for an extension up until
12:26 am
the 30th of june. because of course it is the first of july the new year of parliament comes in. european leaders have been saying that an extension beyond the 23rd of may. the beginning of the election period. would be complicated because it will take all kind of maneuvers and to allow that to happen. with the united kingdom feel candidates for parliament term in which it won't sit. all would be questions to be resolved and no doubt discussed today. what is so interesting about europe stance at this stage is in a sense after the last couple years they have so often essentially agreed to what the united kingdom was asking for. to see the government go back and have it rejected. we might agree on an extension but the first thing that has to happen is the british prime minister has to get the deal through parliament in a vote for
12:27 am
leaders to meet again before the end of next week. since we're a week and a day away from that march 29th deadline in order to say the uk parliament has authorized this and backed this deal. we will formally allow this extension. they're saying west minister it is up to you first. today we'll hear more about what might be -- how far they're willing to go. the timetable. the formal acceptance, awarding of the extension will be done once west minister had a say. sp backed the deal. third time lucky perhaps. >> perhaps. eight days to go. if they don't get it right they're crashing out. reporting there live from brussels. phil black in london. thank you both. before the deadly crash of the ethiopia flight another airline had iz disaster with the boeing

military style semi-automatic rifles. as more funerals were taking place. president trump said wednesday he is okay with the report from special counsel mueller being made public. this despite his still calling the russia probe a witch hunt and a hoax. exclusive new cnn poll shows a massive majority 87% of the polled say the mueller report should be made public. british mime minister urging lawmakers to back the brexit deal. as she heads to brussels to ask for a delay until june 30th. they warned against expending the deadline beyond march 23. to avoid taking part in the election. >> under intense scrutiny after two deadly crashes involving the
12:33 am
same type of airplane craft. now we have learned the u.s. justice department has been issued subpoenas as part of a criminal investigation into the way boeing was regulated by the faa. more now from cnn even perez. >> prosecutors issued subpoenas part of an investigation into the certifica t the certification and marketing. sources tell us the investigation is in its early stages. and it began after the indonesia crash of lion air 737 max in october. transportation secretary this week asked the agency inspector general to investigate the max certification. criminal investigators have sought information from boeing on the plane safety and certification procedure. including training manuals for pilots and how they marketed the aircraft. it's not clear what possible
12:34 am
criminal law could be at issue in the probe, among the things that investigators are looking into is a process by which boeing itself certified the plane as safe and the data it gave to the faa about the self-certification. the company does not respond or comment on questions regarding legal matters. the planes have been grounded worldwide after the crash last week of the max aircraft operated by ethiopia airline. >> meantime, boeing says there's a software patch and pilot training program to address issues with the 737 max. involved in the lion air crash. it's not clear when the planes will fly again. since the fleet has been grounded. but the faa has said the boeing updates will address the maneuvering characteristics augme augmentation system. which may have given faulty data
12:35 am
that sent the plane into a nose dive. the final desperate moments for the lion air flight crew. investigators search for possible links between the crash and last weeks airline tragedy. here's tom foreman. >> reporter: for nine terrifying minutes the cockpit recorder captures a crew fighting to pull up a plane repeatedly diving forwards the sea. scouring the manual for any explanation. battling an on board computer that is forcing the dives. this is what is reporting tonight from sources familiar with the lie yn air crash off indonesia last fall. the crew seemed oblivious to the fact the tail was automatically tilting. they didn't know the trim was moving down. they thought about air speed and altitude. one pilot issued a short prayer.
12:36 am
before the crash killed 189 people aboard. authorities are not commenting. analysts say the training was insufficient. >> it must have been just horrifying in the cockpit. for the professionals. it's been stated it should have been a memory item. clearly it wasn't. >> what's more bloomberg reports the jet had the same problem the day before and was saved because an off duty pilot in the cockpit told the crew to cut power to the automatic system. still the plane took off again. >> this is what i call the fly it and watch it attitude. that shouldn't have occurred here flt this was i can't understand why at least it wasn't test flown. or brought out on the ramp and tested again. >> it all raises troubling questions about the fatal jet crash which authorities say looks like the lion air disaster. why did boeing design that antistall software to rely on one sen censor?
12:37 am
why were pilots not given more pointers and training. where was the faa? >> what happened the measures taken by boeing after the first occasion were not enough to avoid. >> in defense of boeing some analysts point out this type of plane has taken off and landed safely ten of thousands of times. since the lion air crash. for the worldwide aviation community that is not enough at this point. they're saying boeing has to prove the planes are safe. before they can carry passengers again. >> joining me now. cnn transportation analyst. she is the former inspector general at the u.s. department of transportation. and she is practicing law and represents crash victims and currently has litigation pending against boeing. always good to have you with us. >> thank you. >> i want to start with some new
12:38 am
information that we have. the federal aviation administration announced boeing developed a software patch and pilot training program to address the problems associated with the boeing 737 max. identified in the october lion air crash. how far does that go to fix this problem as far as you're concerned snd would that make wrou feel safe getting on the plane? >> no. i don't think it will be enough for the regulators and certainly not the investigators. who are investigating boeing. boeing was working on that software patch after the lion air and when ethiopia went down the faa quickly entered an order saying it had to be done by april. in that order, indicated that it might not have been done even at that time. and so now with the questions about the software and training and how many things went wrong, i think that won't necessarily
12:39 am
be approved. there is issues about if the software was the right fix for the tendency of the plane to pitch nose up. and so they put the software and pitch the nose bag down. if the training specified is enough. and people probably i think that it will be determined that it's not enough. that you have to have hands on simulator training. it's a step forward, i don't think this will be enough and won't get approved. >> we're learning the justice department prosecutors have issued multiple subpoenas as part of the investigation into boeing faa certification and marketing of 737 max airliners. involved in the ethiopia and indonesia disaster. what do you expect to come out of the investigation? >> i think it's a really important development because so often in the government investigations and certainly when i was inspector general i had to issue subpoenas and warrants against our own
12:40 am
government. because they weren't forthcoming. so the fact they are resorting out of the box to subpoena and using the power of the united states department of justice and the fbi is also joined in too, that means the information they get won't be filtered. sometimes government agencies give you what they want you to have. instead of all of the documents we have asked for. what they are executing both subpoenas and eventually i would assume warrants. they have a better chance of getting all the documents in the details. really painting a better picture a much more robust and probably more straightforward picture. >> thank you so much. we appreciate it. >> thank you. >> days after cyclone blasted across mozambique. desperate people are fighting to s survive. how bad things and why they could get worse. oh!
