h modern history. >> and still many people behind will you paying their respects and all right action. thank you. and was the boeing 737 max 8 ever a safe plane to fly? the justice department has issued several subpoenas into boeing certification and marketing of the 737 max line. the faa and others say data from the lion air crash in october similar to the ethiopian's crash last week. a criminal investigation seeking answers on two accidents that killed hundreds, justice correspondent evan perez has the latest from washington. >> reporter: justice department prosecutors have issued multiple subpoenas as part of an investigation into boeing's certification and marketing of 737 max aircraft. now, this is the plane that has been involved in two fatal crashes in less than six months. sources tell us that the investigation is in its early stages and that it began after the indonesian crash in october.
1:05 am
elaine chao asked the agency's inspector general to investigate the max certification. criminal investigators have sought information from boeing on their training manuals, pilots and how the company marketed the new aircraft. it is not clear what possible criminal laws could be at issue in the probe. among the things that investigators are looking into is the process by which boeing itself certificate fid the pled safe. a boeing spokesperson says the company does not respond or comment on questions regarding legal matters. the planes have been grounded worldwide after the crash last week of a max aircraft operated by ethiopian airlines. >> evan perez, thanks. the faa says boeing has developed a software patch and flight crew training to address
1:06 am
the issues and investigators are looking in to whether faulty data drove it into a steep dive. roit ertz reported yesterday that the pilots were reviewing a land book to figure out why the plane was lurching down but simply ran out of time. meantime the u.s. air force has ordered a review of training procedures for military pilots flying large cargo and transport planes. that includes air force one. the military brass wants to ensure pilots know how and when to turn off automated systems if they encount tkouncounter prob.7 the acting defense secretary was a top boeing investigation executive for more than 30 years. inspector general looking at whether he was too close with husband former employer and openly critical of boeing competitors. the ig has not yet concluded whether a violation occurred.

1:08 am
president's mental fitness tweeted a response, you period are period nuts. but the president wasn't finished. >> he is a whack job, no question about it, but i really don't know him. i think he's doing a tremendous disservice to a wonderful ly kellyanne is a wonderful woman and i call him mr. kellyanne. >> and for her side, telling commit company trump left it alone for months out of respect for me, but you think he shouldn't respond when a nonmedical professional accuses him of having a mental disorder, you think he should just take that sitting down. and then later during a speech in ohio, the president once again refused to let senator mccain rest in peace. >> so i have to be honest. i've never liked him much. hasn't been for me. mccain didn't get the job done
1:09 am
for our great vets and the v.a. i gave him the kind of funeral that he wanted, which as president i had to approve. i don't care about this, i didn't get thank you. that's okay. but i wasn't a fan of john mccain. >> that did not get the big applause lines that you sometimes hear at these appearances from the president. in fact our reporters who were in the audience said especially from the military members that were there, absolute stoic silence as the president was attacking a war hero. at alone one republican senator has had enough of the attacks on mccain calling hcomments deplorable. lindsey graham who has been mostly silent now says president trump's comments hurt the president more than they hurt mccain's legacy. a potential misstep for former colorado governor john hickenlooper. last night dana bash asked whether he would consider picking a female running mate

andepolice itsed groans from the audience. m . >> would you do the same? >> again, of course, but i think that we should -- i'll ask you another question. how do we aren't -- >> i'm not asking the question. >> i know. but you how come we're not asking the women would you be willing to put a man on the ticket. >> when we get to that point, i'll ask you that question. >> the nation has never had a female vice president. still hickenlooper standing by his answer. >> he said maybe i've missed it, it meaning women being asked, but women feel that it is a form of discounting. for the record a reporter actually did ask elizabeth warren if she would consider selecting a male vice president and she did not directly answer that question. >> come on, give us a break here people. it just got a lot easier for employers to dump the pensions of retirees.
1:11 am
the treasury department quietly issuing a notice earlier this month allowing employers to buy out current pensions with one time lump sum payment, that reverses an obama era policy that banned the practice. many employers have stopped offering pensions which guarantee a monthly in-do for as long as someone lives in retirement. pensions still cover 26.2 million people. that number has been shrinking rapidly has companies close their pension plans to new hires. >> instead they do 401(k)s and the like. they are overing a different ki -- offering a different kind of benefit. the federal reserve voted to hold interest rates steady and went from expecting two interest hikes to none. >> the u.s. economy is in a good place and we will continue to use our monetary policy tools to help keep it there.

>> the fed officials also downgraded their gdp growth forecast 2.1% now on concerns of slowing domestic and global gle growth. >> growth is slowing somewhat more than expected. financial conditions tightened considerably over the fourth quarter. growth has slowed in europe and china. >> previous estimate was 2.3% growth this year. that is significantly lower than the trump administration's forecast of 3%. the announcement not good for bank stocks. banks make more money on higher rates when lending. the lower growth forecast could also raise concerns about the ability of americans to pay back mortgages and loans or the demand for loans. ahead the mom behind the popular fantastic adventure youtube channel is facing serious charges. what police say she did to the kids when they couldn't remember their lines. for real cold and flu protection

just eight days to go until brilt contin britain is scheduled to leave the european union. theresa may travels to brussels, she will request an extension of the deadline, that where require unanimous approval from all 27 eu members. what happens if all sides agree, what happens if all sides don't agree and what in the world is going on in the uk? phil black is joining us from outside parliament. and i don't mean to make light of it because this is incredibly serious, but pushing a deadline to june 5th still creates all kinds of unseicertaintuncertain. >> reporter: the prime minister is asking for a short extension,
1:25 am
something close to the end of june. it looks likely that she will get it. those are the indications from eu leaders in brussels. the details will be thrashed out today. but what we do know, that there will be a very strict condition attached and that is that the extension won't become official, it won't be locked in unless theresa may is able to get parliament here in london to back the negotiated divorce agreement that parliament has already rejected twice. so that is a really big condition, that remains a really big challenge for the prime minister and tlg hait will have happen before march 29 because that remains under british law the official brexit date. so if the deal doesn't go through, then the uk is still very much looking at the possibility of crashing out of the european union without a deal in place on march 29. and that is widely expected to be a pretty catastrophic scenario economically both for
