show any disrespect to president obama. >> reporter: against white house wishes israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu will make a landmark speech to congress this morning. in it he'll make his case against an emerging nuclear deal with iran that he feels puts israel at risk risks he outlined at a pro-israeli conference monday in washington. >> it vows to annihilate israel, if it develops nuclear weapons, it would have the means to achieve that goal. we must not let that happen. >> reporter: the u.s. and five nations are working to finalize an agreement by april that would eliminate iran's ability to build a nuclear weapon for at least a decade in exchange for an easing of economic sanctions. at the same conference, national security adviser susan rice said no one should expect iran to fully stop its nuclear pursuit but defended the agreement. >> a bad deal is worse than no deal. and if that is the choice, there
will be no deal. >> reporter: president obama will not meet with prime minister netanyahu while he's here and will not attend his speech. >> we think it's a mistake for the prime minister of any country to come to speak before congress a few weeks before they're about to have an election. it makes it look like we are taking sides. >> reporter: secretary of state john kerry continues talks with his iranian counterpart in switzerland today, helping to broker what could be an historic deal. now, the speech happens here on capitol hill right around 11:00 a.m. eastern time. it also comes just about two weeks before elections in israel when netanyahu's job is on the line. that's leading many here lauren, to accuse netanyahu of coming here for political reasons. >> susan mcginnis, thank you. it's reported that hillary clinton used a private e-mail account to conduct official business when she was secretary of state possibly breaking federal law. "the new york times" reports
clinton did not have an official government e-mail while serving at the state department. federal law requires e-mails and other communications to be preserved. two months ago clinton turned over 55,000 pages of e-mails according to "the times." other secretaries of state also used personal e-mails to conduct business. her successor, john kerry, is the first to use a standard government e-mail address. now to the weather and much of the nation is in a deep freeze this morning. there are winter weather advisories and warnings posted in more than 30 states from montana to massachusetts. more snow tonight and tomorrow could break a 20-year record in boston. the city has gotten more than 100 inches this year so much snow there's no place to park. and now the city is starting to remove all the things like chairs and those orange cones that folks use to reserve the parking spaces they've dug out. many residents are less than thrilled. >> i think it's only fair if
they get rid of the snow. we have more mounds of snow than we actually have parking spaces. and people can't park here. and it's not right. >> some residents fear removing the space savers will increase parking disputes. there was lightning off the coast of southern california yesterday, but the really unusual weather event was the hail. a rare sight in huntington beach. police say it's only happened three times in the last 30 years. investigators are going over video taken of a deadly confrontation between los angeles police and a homeless man. police say the man grabbed an officer's gun. police shot him dead. but the incident was captured on at least four cameras including two worn by officers. daniel nottingham reports. >> reporter: los angeles police struggled to detain a robbery suspect on this sidewalk sunday afternoon. while two officers confront a woman who picked up a baton, the
others attend to the suspect in the background. over the clicking sounds of a taser, you can hear an officer shout something about a gun. >> he's got a gun! >> reporter: and then police say three officers opened fire, killing the suspect. lapd police chief charlie beck says the officer's words appear to tell why. >> the one that i heard the most clear is the officer saying "he has my gun." and he says it several times, with conviction. >> reporter: but some witnesses disagree. >> you're being tased, you'll be flailing. you're not necessarily reaching or grabbing for anything. >> reporter: the lapd an independent inspector general, and the l.a. county district attorney are investigating what happened here. authorities are reviewing cell phone video as well as surveillance footage taken from this area. police released an enhanced freeze frame showing what they say is the suspect's hand on the officer's weapon. they also showed a photo of the gun with its slide pulled back and a bullet partially ejected.
>> this is indicative of a struggle over the weapon. >> reporter: body cameras worn by two of the officers are also being examined as part of the investigation. danielle nottingham, cbs news, los angeles. cleveland's mayor says he's sorry for insensitive language in a court filing about the killing of 12-year-old tamir rice. frank jackson was responding to anger about wording that said the boy's death at the hands of police were his own fault. >> we are apologizing today as a city to the family of tamir rice and to the citizens of the city of cleveland for our poor use of words in our in our insensitivity in the use of those words. >> rice had been playing with a toy gun at a playground when he was killed in november. a rookie officer fired within two seconds after getting out of his squad car. a virginia man on the fbi's most-wanted list is in custody

nemtsov was shot four times in the back on his way home from dinner with his girlfriend. this is the spot where nemtsov was killed. and you can see the pile of flowers that keeps growing. but what has shocked people most about his murder is that it happened literally just a few steps away from the kremlin. in 1997 nemtsov served as deputy prime minister. but under putin's reign, he became an outspoken critic of government corruption and russian involvement in ukraine's war. do you blame president putin for your friend's death? >> i blame state and state propaganda in creating such kind of pro-violence pro-terror in public atmosphere in countries. >> reporter: no matter who pulled the trigger, he said the message is clear. those who speak out can be a target. so what is the future of the opposition in russia? >> i think it's -- nobody knows.
not only what few opposition we have, no one can see what future for russia we have. >> reporter: nemtsov had reportedly received death threats in the past and his friends claim that he was planning to publish further evidence of russia's military involvement in ukraine, involvement that russia still strenuously denies. clarisa ward, cbs news, moscow. coming up on the "morning news," splintering stocks. shares of lumber liquidators take a dive after a "60 minutes" investigation. and controversy over a portrait of bill clinton that contains a reference to monica lewinsky. this is the "cbs morning news." fibrillation an irregular heartbeat not caused by a heart valve problem. that puts jim at a greater risk of stroke. for years, jim's medicine tied him to a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but now, with once-a-day xarelto®, jim's on the move. jim's doctor recommended xarelto®.
