"newsroom" starts now. thanks for joining me, i'm fredricka whitfield.
new details in a possible motive for friday's shooting at a colorado planned parenthood. suspect robert lewis dear talked about baby parts to investigators after his surrender. a law enforcement official says dear told police that he has anti-government and anti-abortion views but did not explicitly say that is what moved him to kill three people including a veteran police officer. five other officers and four civilians were wounded. we've also learned propane tanks were found near the suspect's car, possibly intended to create an explosion. and we're learning more about the remote area where the suspect lived 65 miles west of the colorado springs planned parenthood clinic. we spoke with some of dear's neighbors. >> they were nice. really nice guy, you know? was talking to us and everything. gave us some anti-flyers, little pamphlets and i didn't even really read them. i just -- i think i used this'm to start the fire in our
campfire that night and i saw him at the post office on wednesday. said hi to him. >> but did he have anything to say? meanwhile, the department of justice is reviewing the incident as possible domestic terrorism. they're also looking at possible hate crime charges. dan simon is live in colorado springs so, dan, what are local officials telling you about the investigation? >> well, hi, fredricka. the portrait that has emerged of the suspect, 57-year-old robert dear, is that this guy was a complete loner. he lived in a trailer in central colorado. before that he lived in a similar setup in north carolina far away from civilization. in terms of his criminal record, he didn't have any. he didn't have any convictions. over the years he had encountered with law enforcement but none of the charges stuck. in 1997 his wife at the time accused him of domestic assault but no charges were brought forward. a few years later he was charged with being a peeping tom but, again, no charges came as a
result of that. and just a short time ago i had a chance to talk with the mayor and he said because there seemed to be no violent episodes associated with this suspect, it's very hard for law enforcement to keep tabs on someone like robert dear. take a look. >> we've had examples of this in the past. this guy is kind of shaping up to be like a ted kaczynski type of character. perhaps not quite the loner. but it's very difficult for law enforcement to deal with individuals like this who don't commit serious crimes a s and g themselves on the radar that way. unless a threat is posed beforehand that they can respond to. as authorities work to come up with a firm motive, we know the suspect sur reverended in the planned parenthood. he apparently felt cornered.
a bear cat progrrammed into the building and the suspect gave up. he will have his first court appearance tomorrow afternoon. fredricka? >> dan simon, thank you so much. colorado governor john hickenlooper addressed the shootings on cnn's "state of the union" and expressed his concern for frequency of shootings in the u.s. >> i think we have to come back and look at all aspects of why these shootings have continued to occur in oregon or south carolina or colorado. the frequency is unacceptable and i don't -- you know, i'm not willing to say we just have to sit back and accept this as a cost of freedom. i think we have to really look at how do we address -- how do we make sure people have -- who are unstable, who have violent histories. if somehow a level of domestic violence made it much more difficult to get a weapon made
we'd not only keep our communities safer but also cut down on domestic violence. governor hickenlooper ordered flags on all public buildings in the state be lowered to half-staff. suspect robert lewis dear, while he'll appear in court monday, right now the focus in colorado springs is on the victims in this tragedy. i want to talk more about this with eric singer, a reporter from the "colorado springs gazette." good to see you. you attended both vigils. how are people doing? what are they telling you? >> well, frederica, it was a tale of two vigils. the early morning one at the all souls unitarian church was one of a community coming together in mourning but looking ahead. in that vigil they were talking about planned parenthood support. in the night vigil, the university of colorado at colorado springs, there was more mourning but there was also a cherishing of life, talking about officer swasey, his family and his love of duty at the
university of colorado in colorado springs. i did have the opportunity to speak with students and staffers who said he was a man who really loved what he did and he knew the risks of what he did. >> we know the department of justice is reviewing the case, looking into whether it, indeed, meets the criteria of domestic terrorism and even a hate crime. what have people in the community been telling you about their feelings about how this crime should be classified? >> well, at this point, i haven't had the opportunity to speak to members of the community specifically on that topic. right now they're still in that grieving process. thinking about officer swasey's family. thinking about what's next in this investigation and speaking of what's next, just moments ago on the colorado springs "gazette." we learned the name of the other victim. it was officer swasey and two civilians. moments ago we learned kiar
stewart is another victim identified. we learned that from kktv. so keyar stewart is the other man. so we're waiting for the identification of the third person killed that day. >> well, cnn has not confirmed that but as you said the "gazette" is reporting that as well as a local affiliate. we also understand investigators have shared this kind of information with reporters saying robert lewis dear spoke about body parts after his surrender. what more do we know about what he said and what kind of planning may have gone or the motivation? >> well, that has not been
verified. we reached out to the sheriff's office within the last half hour to 45 minutes. they said they are not confirming that and any official sources are coming from them so we have not been able a-to-eto identify or confirm that statement. >> locally there, what should people expect? we understand centennial boulevard which is where the planned parenthood office was, portions of it remain closed. what more do you know about how this is impacting colorado spring, the town, how people are able to get around and about and how they can resume to some normal normalcy? >> frederica, this is a densely populated area, it's in northwest colorado springs. it's about two blocks behind me. in this area there's shopping centers, homes, open spaces,
this is densely populated so we have a king's supers, we have numerous other stores attached to the king's supers and this shut down. this goes north and south, fill mortar goes east and west. there's a lot of traffic. now we have fill mortar east and west continuing to be a major thoroughfare but behind me probably about 20 blocks that is still shut down. remember, this is still an active crime scene behind me. >> i spoke with one woman yesterday who was an eyewitness who crouched in her vehicle when the shooting was taking place and she said that grocery store that she was in the parking lot of is one she would frequent all the time but now she doesn't feel like she'll be able to return, she'll change her patterns that she has used for years now. have you heard that from other people there? >> you know what i've heard from other people is we're looking ahead. we're grieving now but we're a
community in mourning but ahead we have a lot to pause for and one of those things to pause for is something mayor john sutzu z- suter said, we will be defined by the heroes, not the shooter. >> thank you, we'll be right back. whatever you're doing, plan well and enjoy life... ♪ or, as we say at unitedhealthcare insurance company, go long. of course, how you plan is up to you. take healthcare. make sure you're covered for more than what just medicare pays... consider an aarp medicare supplement insurance plan insured by unitedhealthcare insurance company... you might give this a try... the only medicare supplement plans that carry the aarp name,

jim acosta joining me live from paris. jim, the paris attacks obviously looming large over this conference we know leaders of many countries will be talking about it, how will they also tackle the climate change issues? >> well, they're determined to do it and president obama said before he left for paris he's on his way right now that this would be one way to show isis that the world can come together and tackle these big problems no matter what happened in paris a couple weeks ago and the white house is determined to see something come to fruition here. the president is bringing with him the secretary of state, secretary of interior, energy, epa administrator, so you name it, every relevant cabinet official will join the president for this but hanging over this summit will be a lot of tension. this will be a city on edge over the next few days as more than a hundred leaders from around the world descend on paris for these
climate talks and we saw that tension on the streets of paris earlier today. as you said, there were 200 arrests after these clashes between protesters and police, demonstrators were protesting the fact that there are new rules in effect that bar these large-scale demonstrations, that's because of what happened on november 13 here in paris. those paris attacks. and the french president francois hollande, who will be meeting with president obama tomorrow evening for dinner described these protests as being scandalous, he's very upset these protests took place but nevertheless the president will be working hard on that climate issue but at the same time he is going to be deal with this issue of how to go about defeating isis. he'll sit down with francois hollande, the french president at dinner tomorrow night. they'll catch up on hollande's meeting with vladimir putin last week. hollande would like to see the u.s. coalition and russia work together to defeat isis but all indications fredricka from out
of the white house and crekreml is that president obama and president putin are not there yet. but at the same time the president is determined to see the climate talks produce something in the end and they're hopeful what they can do is have nearly every country on earth gathered here come to an agreement to commit themselves to limit bar ccarbon emissions the next decades. it's something that's a big priority on the president's agenda but he has a lot to tackle when he gets to paris in a few hours from now. >> as it pertains to terrorism and isis, among the nation's leaders that some are hoping might get together we know turkey's erdogan is trying to meet with russia's vladimir putin. last we reported and knew putin was giving turkey the cold shoulder. any news you can report out of paris for us?
>> well, i think that is going to be one of the topics that the president will have to deal with when he gets here to paris. i was at the press conference last week, president obama made no, he made no bones about it, the united states is standing with turkey in defensing its airspace, defending its territory. we saw the turkish president offer some words of condolences to the russians for the downing of that aircraft but it didn't go as far as the kremlin wanted and it goes to show that the president has a very big problem to deal with in syria right now and that is you have various players with various agendas and sometimes there can be big problems when these two military forces, the united states and its coalition and russia clash with one another over the skies of syria and in the view of the turks over the skies of turkey and so that will certainly be something they have to iron out. the u.s. is not saying at this
point, fredricka, that president obama will meet with vladimir putin. they're not supposed to have a bilateral meeting but it's likely. every time they have one of these big gatherings those two leaders meet on the sidelines. when we were in turkey as you remember the cameras were roll and we saw presidents obama and putin talking to one another. it was fascinating to see. perhaps we'll see that again in paris. >> sometimes it produces opportunities thanks so much, jim acosta, appreciate that from paris. >> that's right. straight ahead, new details about the suspects still on the run in the paris attacks. we'll go live to brussels for the latest on that. eal on prescriptions. we found lower co-pays... ...and a free wellness visit. new plan...same doctor. i'm happy. it's medicare open enrollment. have you compared plans yet? it's easy at medicare.gov. or you can call 1-800-medicare. medicare open enrollment. you'll never know unless you go. i did it. you can too. ♪
new details on the lead suspect still on the run after the paris terror attacks. a source close to the investigation tells cnn that salah abdeslam bought detonators before the attacks in france. al and have field is in brussels with more on the story. what more are we learning, alexandra? >> hey, fredricka. we know salah abdeslam is the most-wanted man in connection with these attacks and authorities have over the last couple weeks spelled out what they believe parts of his alleged role may have been. we know his brother was one of the suicide bombers, we know salah and his brother rented the cars used in the attacks but we are now learning from
investigators that salah abdeslam did purchase detonators prior to the paris attacks. a french newspaper is reporting the detonators were bought at a store north of the paris and the owner or the manager of that store contacted police to let them know salah abdeslam had made the purchase after seeing his picture which was released as a part of this manhunt that has been going on since the night of november 13. that's when salah abdeslam was able to make his way out of paris and back to brussels. he slipped through that police dragnet in a car with two other men because at the time police didn't know who they were looking for yet. the question now, where is he? it's an international hundredth but you have the u.s. homeland security committee chair weighing in saying he believes investigators are closer to finding the man they've been looking for. listen to what he told brianna keilar on state of the union just this morning. >> mr. chairman, do you know anything about whether investigators may be closer to finding abdeslam? do you think they have a sense of whether he's still in europe
forinstead he may have made his way to syria? >> well, i can't get into that level ofspecificity. i don't want to compromise their investigation. i think they're closing in on him and that's good news. there are many involved in this plot. it's a very sophisticated plot, an external operation that we've seen from isis. you mentioned the bombing of the russian airliner. this is a new isis, a new chapter for them to conduct three external operations in just recent times. >> throughout brussels and belgium there is concern about where salah abdeslam could be and whether or not he has a network helping to hide him here from authorities, the terror alert level was at its highest for most of the week, level 4. it's dropped down to level three but the hunt for salah couldn'ts. authorities are looking for another man who was seen with
salah abdeslam two days before the terror attacks. >> alexandra field, thank you so much. so, again, the detonators purchased by salah abdeslam in france but he, the primary suspect, still on the run. thanks so much. back in this country, republican presidential candidate donald trump inviting several african-american religious leaders to meet with him tomorrow but many are saying no. next, we'll talk to a pastor in atlanta who says he was invited to the meeting. we'll find out if he plans to attend, next. plaque psoriasis... ...isn't it time to let the... ...real you shine... ...through? introducing otezla, apremilast. otezla is not an injection, or a cream. it's a pill that treats plaque psoriasis differently. some people who took otezla saw 75% clearer skin after 4 months. and otezla's prescribing information has no requirement for routine lab monitoring. don't take otezla if you are allergic to any of its ingredients.
otezla may increase... ...the risk of depression. tell your doctor if you have a history of depression... ...or suicidal thoughts, or if these feelings develop. some people taking otezla reported weight loss. your doctor should monitor your weight and may stop treatment. side effects may include diarrhea, nausea, upper respiratory tract infection, and headache. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take, and if you're pregnant or planning to be. ask your doctor about otezla today. otezla. show more of you. five years ago, on any given night, you know, almost 75,000 veterans experienced homelessness. we have reduced those numbers by almost half, but despite the great progress that we have achieved, there are still too many veterans who still need a place to live. this project is a comprehensive rehabilitation of the center's facility here in downtown boston to create permanent supportive housing, transitional housing and service spaces, a facility that really delivers on society's commitment
to people who have served in the military. citi® was the financial partner because they were able to come with the resources, both the capital resources and also the human resources, the experts in their fields, and without citi's partnership we probably would not be in construction right now. the goal for us in this project is to be more effective in the services that we provide so that veterans who have committed to put their lives at risk to protect this country have a home in this country.
hello again and thanks so much for joining me, i'm fredricka whitfield. a meeting tomorrow between republican presidential candidate donald trump and a group of african-american religious leaders may not turn out like the campaign planned. some of the leaders say they are avoiding the meeting all together and others are attending but not necessarily endorsing the candidate
afterwards. bishop corletta vaughn who appears on "preachers of detroit" was invited but posted this on her facebook saying "trump is an insult and embarrassment but he represents the country we have become. zero tolerance, flaunt ago ticket of unbridled bigotry, sexism, racism and everything that is wrong with america." the trump campaign said today that will be an informational meet and greet but added a number of attendees are expected to endorse trump:. the campaign canceled a press conference following that meeting. bishop paul morton joining me in atlanta, the founder of the gull pos gospel baptist church in atlanta. good to see you. >> good to be here. >> you were invited? >> i was invited to the first meeting in atlanta, that was the foundation as they was laying it out in atlanta and i refused to go. the pastors that was organizing
here. >> why? zblauz. >> because i feel as though if i'm a kingdom representative, i represent the kingdom of god, so they kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. what donald trump is representing right now, the insults, the degrading is not what we're all about so for me to endorse somebody like that where you have no respect for people. with the women, i think that was a disgrace and just the disabled reporter, that is unbelievable. even the way they pulled the man out, black lives matter. it's like a bully in the 21st century. it's not presidential. i think if you're going to be a president you have to be presidential. now i don't mind -- i want to make it clear i don't mind pastors going that go and way for mr. trump but in the prayer i think that they need to say to
mr. trump, listen, you need to apologize to women, you need to apologize to immigrants, the list goes on and on and if he comes out and says, look, i just met men of god and women of god and i'm sorry then you can look at him differently but right now he doesn't believe in apologizing so that's not what i'm looking for. i'm leading people and the casa kind of people he's hurting, how do i go back and say "we're endorsing him but he's talking bad about us." >> so you have justified why not to endorse. what would be the harm in meeting or is there concern that meeting trump might be misconstrued as an endorsement just by being in the same room, having dialogue? >> well, i see that there is kind of a change in the meeting now because it was supposed to be a meeting to endorse.
again, i don't mind pastors going. i think it's our obligation, we meet with anybody. that, to me, is important. but we should be meeting to counsel. to counsel you. what are you doing, mr. trump? >> do you think this meeting could back in to those leaders who have said yes to meeting and have the same views and trepidations that you just expressed? might they or is it possible that some would take that opportunity to say let's talk about what we don't necessarily agree with or what we are what concerns us about your rhetoric. >> with mr. trump, i think that would be dangerous. if you invited mr. trump to the church, to say "meet us at the church, we want to talk to you." but on his grounds at trump towers? he would say "all of y'all get out of here."
so to me that would be a problem but i think it's necessary for somebody to speak into his life: if he's serious about being president, you can't keep insulting everybody. you're supposed to be bringing people together and i know you may be rich and all of that but you have to respect people. that's the problem they had in the bible. there was a king that was just intoxicated with power and when you get drunk with power and think you don't have to apologize to anybody, you don't have to humble yourself, you're not going to make it. so i think that that's the job of a preacher to really speak that into his life. the best way to speak is "i'm not coming until you do better. >> is it customary for you to mix politics and the pulpit? have you in the past openly endorsed a candidate? if you were to endorse one, would it be unusual?
>> no, it would not. we encourage our pastors, our providing bishop even encourages pastors to get involved in politics. we have to, we're making major decisions in our lives so we want to make sure the right people are in place so we have endorsed. i think that that's important. but you sit down, talk first, don't rush. you have to see who is in. what is your policy? so that's what we have to look at. yes, i have no problem in endorsing but right now in this particular situation, no way. >> you're talking this situation, not trump. is there anyone in the landscape right now who you feel comfortable? who you think does represent the principles that you just spelled out? >> i know we often say african-americans go with the democrats but i want to talk with the democrats because now they're encroaching on the grounds of the church as it
relates to what the church believes in, what the bible believes in. so anybody that goes with the bible, i want to know is the churchgoing to protected as it relates to these things coming out? laws are for the land but the church must be protected and i want somebody to stand up and say no matter what the church will be respected. the church will be protected? >> so that's a point republican ted cruz has been making. do you like anything else about what ted cruz may have said that would entice you? that would be enough that he would win your endorsement? >> oh, no, that's not an -- you know, again, i listen to people's heart and that's what's important so that's why i carefully carefully pray and choose. carefully pray and choose. at this particular time there's nobody that i'm seeing that's answering the kingdom agenda for me. >> so the jury is still out? >> the jury is still out.
>> bishop morton, thank you so much for your time, appreciate it. >> thank you, bless you. >> thank you. the next republican presidential debate right here on cnn, tuesday, december 15. 9:00 p.m. eastern. innovative sonicare technology with up to 27% more brush movements versus oral b. get healthier gums in 2 weeks guaranteed. innovation and you. philips sonicare save when you buy the most loved rechargeable toothbrush brand in america.

the border in syria and will be returned to russia. this comes as tensions escalate between turkey and russia. russia announcing a set of economic restrictions against turkey just as turkish president erdogan offered to meet vladimir putin at this week's climate conference in paris. i want to bring in liz wall, a journalist and former anchor at "russia today." good to see you, liz. do you see on the horizon putin would meet with the turkish leader or will they continue to give him the cold shoulder? >> based on his actions right now it looks like he is not really very warm to a possible meeting with the turkish leader. it seems like he does want an apology. from what we've seen with putin's actions so far he does portray this role of a strong man and he wants to portray that projection of power and it's not in his nature to back down and it seems like an apology is what
he's searching for it doesn't look like he'll get that so even with the turkish president trying to show a gesture of wanting to talk, i could see a snub from putin the way things are going right now. >> at the same time, is there a feeling from, say, perhaps russia's point of view that there is some need of cooperation with turkey given that turkey stands right in between that flight route to syria? so for how long can i guess talks between turkey and russia or some sort of arrangement go on? >> right, well i think -- i always say with my experience the headlines and rhetoric coming out of the kremlin and russian media can be indicative of what we can expect. right now we're seeing rightly
heightened rhetoric coming out of russian media. we hear from the kremlin saying turkey is an accomplice to terrorism. a top russian official hinted turkey is buying oil from isis which is unsubstantiated and the, theish president fired back at that. so you have to think that obviously this is a very, very serious incident, the shooting down of the jet, but for years now this kind of aunt nato climate has been ramped up in russian media so for a long time now there's been this kind of climate of fear against nato and against western powers portraying nato as the aggressor. and as russia kind of being in this position as needed to defend its borders so i think unfortunately this underscores this greater, i guess, issue or possibility of russia being able
to work in coalition with nato to defend isis and this is just kind of another roadblock in what hopefully hollande met with both leaders in the u.s. and with russia it seems like a point of a coalition against isis is becoming less feasible as these events unfold. >> liz, i wonder if -- is there a simple explanation as to what's behind vladimir putin's allegiance to bashar al assad? >> well, i think it has to do with -- well, it's interesting. when he first intervened in syria it raised eyebrows what his intentions were there. well, i think one of those is to distract from what was going on in ukraine which is a frozen conflict right now. i came back from the baltic states and there's widespread fear there that people are
forgetting what's happening in ukraine and the greater implications of that and if that was one of the goals that's helped because everyone is talking about syria and not youk. so the -- ukraine. and bashar al assad is his ally. it enables him to prop up one of his only supporters and allies in the middle east and have a say, some power over the future of syria and we're seeing in the many theaters and many aspects, putin trying to insert himself into the geopolitical stage right now. >> all right. good information. liz wahl, good to see you. still ahead, republican presidential candidate ben carson now talking about his visit with syrian refugees in jordan. >> in these camps they have school, they have recreational facilities that are really quite nice. >> we'll talk about what else he says he learned from that trip.
ridiculous number of miles... a or there's a fee to use them. i know. it's so frustrating. they'd be a lot happier with the capital one venture card. and you would, too! why? it's so easy with venture. you earn unlimited double miles on every purchase, every day. just book any flight you want then use your miles to cover the cost. now, that's more like it. what's in your wallet?
republican presidential candidate ben carson is wrapping up a trip to jordan today after visiting two syrian refugee camps there. earlier he appeared on cnn's "state of the union" and detailed what he learned from this trip. >> the thing that i've really learned here in listening to the refugees themselves is their intense desire to return to their own country and be repatria repatriated. there's so many people who think that the ideal for everybody is to come to america. >> joining me right now from the white house -- >> fred, there's a perception that talking about meeting with these refugees firsthand does
help boost up at least his knowledge of what's going on in the region. you saw ben carson going out on many of the sunday shows talking about his visit to jordan meeting with syrian refugees. this comes at a time when he's under pressure to show his level of experience. this trip on the part of ben carson's campaign to really boost up his knowledge base in the region. he spoke today. really what his key takeaway seems to be from those conversations with the refugees and which he asked them would you rather stay here at this refugee camp in jordan or prefer to be resettled in the united states. here's what he said on "state of the union" about what he concluded over the weekend. >> their true desire is to be resettled in syria. but, you know, they're satisfied to be in the refugee camps if the refugee camps are adequately
funded. recognize that in these camps, they have schools, they have recreational facilities that are really quite nice and they're putting in all kinds of things that make life more tolerable. would it be better to integrate them into the society? yes. and i certainly talked to some people about that. but you have to make progress as you go. >> and ben carson later went on to say that he believes that the united states should basically be spending more money and aid to these refugee camps rather than just taking in more refu e refugees. >> sunlen serfaty, thank you thech. frank gifford on the news that he suffered from a brain disease at the time of his death. plaque psoriasis...
