hello, and welcome to all of you watching us here in the united states, canada and all around the world, i'm kim brunhuber, ahead on cnn newsroom, days after the suspected chinese spy balloon was shot down another unknown object is found floating above the u.s. why president biden didn't wait for this one to travel any further. plus, more classified documents found in the homes of both donald trump, and mike pence. how the feds are dealing with the new information. >> the desperate rush to get aids to survivors as temperatures are freezing in the earthquake zone. live from cnn center, this is cnn newsroom with kim brunhuber. for the second time in less than a week u.s. fighter jets have taken down an object flying
1:02 am
over american air space. the latest one was sht down friday over alaska's coast over joe biden's orders. it was smaller and not as well equipped as that chinese surveillance balloon. another difference, this object was an altitude of 40,000 feet, and posed a risk to civilian aircraft. the reaction to this object comes after republicans like alaska senator lisa murkowski blasted the biden administration for waiting until the chinese surveillance balloon was safely off the east coast to shoot it down. here she is. >> at what point do we say a surveillance balloon, a spy balloon coming from china is a threat to our sovereignty? it should be the minute, the minute it crosses the line. and that line is alaska. >> and republican congressman mike walt says he has questions
1:03 am
after the second incident. listen to this. >> i'm trying to understand why this much smaller by their own admission. much less capable balloon with a much smaller payload was deemed such a threat that the other one wasn't, and it can't just be the altitude. i guarantee you if we put an object over beijing or over some of their sensitive sights at 40 to 60,000 feet for days collecting sensitive intelligence they would take action. we need to take reciprocal action and again make that clear up front. >> all this took place on the same day the white house announced that president biden will travel to poland to mark one full year of the war in ukraine. cnn's phil mattingly has more. >> reporter: for president biden one press conference, two very significant news developments. one of which was expected, the announcement that president biden will be traveling to poland in commemoration of the one-year anniversary of the russia's invasion of ukraine, the other very much was not and actually wasn't even rolled out
1:04 am
without a question to elicit the response, and that was related to yet another object being shot down by u.s. fighter jets that was near or around u.s. air space. now, that came just six days after a chinese spy balloon was shot down over the atlantic ocean. apples and oranges in terms of what these two objects actually were when you talk to u.s. officials. the difference are critical. another decision, how quickly the decision was made by president biden to give the order to shoot down the object. officials say they first became aware of the object on thursday evening, president biden was briefed about the object on thursday evening adds well. on thursday -- or on friday morning he was told by the pentagon that they recommended he shoot down the object. he gave the order to do so. and a few hours later the object hb shot down. now, when officials describe the object they make clear, they believe it's an apples to oranges comparison when it comes to the chinese spy balloon. the chinese spy balloon
1:05 am
obviously significantly larger when he talked to u.s. officials, had very significant intelligence capabilities, which this object appeared not to but beyond that, there are not a lot of answers. u.s. officials are very candid about this. this was how national security spokes pan john kirby framed things. >> we do expect to be iable to recover the debris since it fell not only within our territorial space, but on what we -- what we believe is frozen water. so it -- a recovery effort will be made, and we're hopeful that it will be successful, and then we can learn a little bit more about it. >> the decision-making process from the pentagon and the president very clearly tied to fact this object was flying about 40,000 feet. that is at the upper end of where commercial air traffic basically resides to some degree, and u.s. officials decided it posed a real threat
1:06 am
at that point, the chinese spy balloon that was up about 65, 70,000 feet. that's a clear difference here. but there was also the political implications of what has happened over the course of the last week and a half, officials saying that had no impact. it will be interesting to see whether or not that's the case in the days and weeks ahead but the critical element of the days and weeks ahead, the recovery of this object to glean more information about what it is, perhaps most importantly, its origin. u.s. officials at this point in time saying they don't know what it's from, whether it's from a nation state, whether it's from a private entity, a commercial entity, there are not a lot of answers, no attribution at this point. again, all this coming at the same time it was announced the president will be traveling to poland, a critical visit to continue to send a message to try and rally the western coalition to support ukraine who will meet with polish president duda and leaders from eastern flanked nato allies. other meetings are possible as well. a big news day on the foreign policy front, and big news day
1:07 am
on the domestic policy front as well as we try and figure out what's actually going on in the days and weeks ahead, phil mattingly, cnn, the white house. turning now to the investigation into the classified do you means, the fbi found at donald trump's mar-a-lago estate last august. a source tells cnn that trump attorney evan corcoran testified for four hours last month before a federal grand jury in washington. the panel is looking into trump's handling of national security records at mar-a-lago. meanwhile, trump's legal team has turned over more classified materials and laptops to federal prosecutors and the fbi is expected to search the washington office of trump's former vice president mike pence in the coming days. cnn's jessica schneider has more on a classified document found at pence's house and the latest on the trump case. >> reporter: two new developments on the classified documents front. first, we've learned the former president's legal team has actually turned over more classified documents to federal prosecutors in recent months, and it really suggests that
1:08 am
these efforts to get classified material back from the former president it still continues, all as the special counsel investigation, which is a criminal investigation, is ongoing. so we learned that this turnover of material happened in december and january. it included not only classified documents, but also a laptop belonging to an aide. plus, an empty folder marked classified evening briefing. we're told that trump's attorneys discovered these documents in december while they were searching through boxes at mar-a-lago. they then turned them over to doj, but of course that discovery was two months after the fbi search at mar lago in august that yielded hundreds of classified documents. we also learned that a trump aide had even copied some of these documents on a thumb drive, not realizing they were classified, we know that the thumb drive and the laptop have also been handed over to investigators. . then on top of that on friday the fbi conducted a five-hour search of former vice president pence's home. they uncovered one classified
1:09 am
document, plus six additional pages that weren't marked classified but were still taken by the fbi for review. now, this search was done in cooperation with pence. he was actually in california visiting his family when the search happened. but now the question really is what comes next for the former vice president? we know the fbi is expected to search his washington, d.c. office in the coming days. but the question is, will there be other searches? also, what will the justice department do now? will they ultimate have to name a special counsel to look into this issue with the former vice president? especially because we know that mike pence is considering announcing a run for 2024, the presidential run. jessica schneider, cnn, washington. more than 24,000 people are now confirmed dead from the powerful earthquake that devastated turkey and syria on monday. in turkey emergency crews from around the world have been digging through the rubble for five days now, hoping every
1:10 am
minute to find another survivor. and on friday they rescued three brothers from the wreckage of a five-story apartment building. state media reports they appeared to be stable after being trapped almost 120 hours. rescues like these are becoming increasingly rare. first responders aren't losing hope of finding more people alive. cnn's nick paton walsh is in southeast turkey with more on the rescue operations there. >> reporter: at times the city can be early quiet, silence falling, almost ghostly, when rescue crews join with each other and try and silence the excavators so they can hear more closely the noises that may be emanating from the rubble for the possibility that somebody is still conscious or trying to cry out for help after over 100 hours. and sometimes they see success. what you're about to see, 109 hours after the tremors. >> over 100 hours after the
1:11 am
worst quake in nearly 100 years and still there are lights that won't go out. naked feet, a reminder this happened in everyone's sleep. and this new dawn so welcome, no better way to show you're alive than this smile. the crowds at each site, larger, louder in success, the number of living buried is smaller. this woman's husband was pulled out moments before her. they don't have to go far to be reminded how so many searches end. the preciousness of each moment of hope is most acute here, where military helicopters and ambulances, form a stream, rushing the injured to hospitals in other turkish cities because so many here are crippled. we see a 3-year-old girl conscious, her 2 months old sister the same. it is unclear if they know where
1:12 am
their mother is. nobody here does. >> they're trying to take off, another ambulance arrives with another injured person who urgently requires treatment elsewhere. >> reporter: the old are rushed on too, but also, too, so tiny, they share a stretcher. on board, must be carried in their arms. they, too, fly without their parents. about 15 patients in total this morning. remember, though, this is how most stories are ending here, hurried graves in cemetery, dug by hand, and card board, even this a relative luxury in a time of nothing. two families of four who died in
1:13 am
the same building. across this city, though, the task of burying so many also urgent. back at the same rubble site another search has begun, this resident explains its interior. the hope now is for yeshim's brother, mother and father, a nurse, she's been here since tuesday. >> i've been struggling for five days. everyone has lost hope now and is sending me condolences. officials told me they'd only find a corpse and now two people have come out alive. we need professional rescuers. the fire brigade quit on us. we found those two just now with construction workers. i brought three body bags, maybe i need them and a graveyard.
1:14 am
>> the dusk to dig inches carefully forwards with no time limit it will guarantee they'll find anything. the city center swamped in dust and the heavy knowledge the longer their patience in struggle, the less likely it is to be rewarded. now, slowly the focus here will shift from trying to get those who are alive from out of the rubble to keeping those alive who are above the rubble, and survived the quakes. that's an exceptionally large challenge for any government. and the city of millions here is in absolute ruins and a slow deterioration you begin to feel of the fabric of normal life. we got a glimpse of how that might look in the last hours, when a false rumor was started amongst the crowds here that a dam nearby had broken and we're about to be flooded. that caused people to pile into any car they could and just try and drive out as quickly as possible. of course the roads were jammed and that was impossible. it turned out to be false information. but shortly afterwards some
1:15 am
local men chased down other local men who they say were trying to rob an abandoned building. a sense of tension there that will surely build as the frustration is at desperation, the absence of normal things you'd expect in daily life here built in the freezing, bitter weeks ahead. nick pate ton walsh, cnn, turkey. and we're joined from istanbul, nada, time is a factor, not just for the search for survivors but for those above the rubble as well. >> reporter: yeah, absolutely, kim, as you saw there in nick's reporting, of course, this is becoming less of a rescue operation, and more of a recovery operation, that death toll, though, only growing higher as the days go by. but of course the concern now is for those that have been impacted now many of course have lost their homes, are struggling in what is freezing temperatures in parts of southeast earn
1:16 am
turkey and northwest syria. there's a real focus now on getting aid to those who are so desperately vulnerable right now. there has been a real push by the turkish government, president erdogan has been focusing on visiting the zone, he says the government is dedicating and focusing all of its departments on those efforts to support those impacted as well, of course, on the rescue effort, more than 140,000 people working on that effort, according to the turkish government. we've seen here in istanbul aid distribution centers being set up in large warehouses, and hangars, even a ship now being sent from istanbul this morning towards the earthquake zone in order to offer support there. housing, people have lost their homes as well as providing a medical facility on board. so a real effort, of course, not only by the international community, but by the turk irk government itself. there is, of course, still concern, though, for those in northwest syria where it has proven hugely difficult to get
1:17 am
aid across the border. there is that one border crossing used by the united nations and other aid organizes to get that aid across. the u.n. says it has now successfully sent a second batch of aid across the border. but so much more needs to be done, so much more needs to get across. and of course this is coming days later. and there are so many in need, in northwestern territory. more than 4 million heavily dependent on humanitarian assistance. you can imagine the struggle that they are facing now, the syrian state government for its part says it is permitting aid coming through damascus to travel through the government-controlled areas to rebel-held territory, of course that was a real sticking point before, and the government has been accused of playing politics as opposed to prioritizing the humanitarian effort. we've heard from aid groups, including the white world food program, both saying that more needs to be done to broaden the access to aid, there needs to be a clear and transparent path for aid to come through damascus to
1:18 am
those rebel-held territories in the northwest. they're not seeing it just yet, despite comments from the syrian government. and of course this is a race against time because those who weren't killed or injured by the earthquake directly are now facing the very real threat of a secondary humanitarian crisis, many now made homeless not for the first time but multiple times after years of war, and conflict, now struggling in freezing temperatures, of course many young children as well left without family members, without parents. so there is a real sense of urgency, and concern there, the consensus from aid groups is that more needs to be done to put pressure on the syrian government to allow for that aid to come through. there is a focus, of course, on getting the aid across the border from turkey into syria, but it has proven logistically very challenging. while the actual crossing is structurally intact, the roads leading up to the crossing have of course been damaged and proven difficult for those aid groups to get across.
1:19 am
that is the focus and that will continue to be the focus now for many weeks ahead. kim? >> yeah, the need is so great, and just growing. a anna baashir, thank you so much. easy prey during patles in eastern ukraine, a vitd of ukrainian attacks that left russian generaling takes heat. the super bowl quarterbacks talk about why they owe their success to their dads. emerge tremfyantnt®. with tremfya®, most people saw 90% clearer skin at 16 weeks. the majority of people saw 90% clearer r skin even at 5 years. serious allergic reactions may occur. tremfya® may increase your risk of infections and lower your ability to fight them. tell your doctor if you have an infection or symptoms or if you had a vaccine or plan to. emerge tremfyant®. with tremfya®. ask your doctor about tremfya® today.

1:32 am
iliv comes up to us cries, she's not only lost her home. her only sister is gone. i have no father, no father, she tells us, she was my everything. in seconds every life here upended. for days fatima hasn't let go of 10-year-old funduk, whenever he hears sirens his entire body shakes. when the earthquake happened i thought it was doomsday, she tells us. we're living an apocalypse. her daughter melus was preparing for her wedding. now they're living in the back of a truck. they say they're thankful to be alive but it's all just too much. these girls went to show us their tent, they're from syria, but turkey is the only home these children have known. inside the tent ibrahim who fled the war in syria, he lost 18 members of his extended family in the earthquake. he says he thought the days of carrying his children to safety
1:33 am
protecting them from collapsing buildings was behind him. >> you're saying they were terrified when the earthquake happened but they're just glad that they are safe. god bless the souls of all those who died. she says. >> reporter: no parent can shield their child from this reality. surrounded by death and destruction, there's no escaping this nightmare. jamana carache, cnn, turkey. survivors face a secondary disaster of snow and cold, leading to what they call worsening and horrific conditions. cnn meteorologist derek van damme has the local forecast. >> challenging weather conditions continue for the earthquake recovery site in southern turkey, and northern syria. this is the latest satellite loop and i want you to notice that there's no real cloud cover across the region. so with clear skies, allows what we call radiational cooling to take place overnight. and any heat that's trapped up
1:34 am
during the course of the day radiates right back into the atmosphere and temperatures are cold. that's going to be particularly challenging for people living outdoors or anyone too afraid to stay indoors for the fear of further aftershocks. now, you can see just in general no precipitation in store. so i guess that's the bit of good news. we won't have to contend with rain or snow going forward with the recovery process. but it is the overarching theme here, cold weather continues for the days ahead. here's a look at the forecast, temperatures, and some of the hardest hit areas, you can see the aftershocks that occurred throughout this region, kind of making almost a t-shape pattern. we have forecast temperatures for saturday afternoon to stay below freezing for most locations in central and southern portions of turkey, and ooze we head a little further south, maybe jump bumping up just above freezing but it's the overnight lows i'm particularly concerned about. you can see the forecast here staying well below zero for southern sections of turkey, we're talking about anywhere
1:35 am
from negative single digits to negative teens. again, that is for forecast minimum temperatures through the course of the weekend and into nerl next week with temperatures rebounding. no significant weather changes in store for the next seven days but also no major weather systems moving through. that's the good news. back to you. >> the u.n. liaison officer with akut search and rescue association, joining us from adana, turkey. thanks so much for being with us. describe what you're seeing there, and the scale of the challenge for your search and rescue team. >> thanks, kim, i mean, the -- i haven't been in the field for a few days now. the sheer level of how widespread the devastation is, is completely unprecedented in terms of what we've seen before in turkey. the fact that the cover is almost ten provinces, and, you know, there are -- there's --
1:36 am
mammoth amount of rescue efforts out here in the field but because the field is so wide, geographically, and with the weather conditions that you're mentioning in your report, below freezing, getting to the, you know, we're approaching the end of the search and rescue window. and plus the probability of finding survivors under the rubble in below-freezing temperatures is becoming a lower probability. and the other thing is that, of course, rescue teams have been on the ground for some days now and the cold weather and extreme fatigue is also beginning to affect the rescue teams. so we're faced with challenges from multiple angles. >> given all those challenges it's incredible that we're still seeing miracles. i mean, people still being pulled from the rubble after more than 100 hours. it must be incredible, and inspiring to see. >> yes, of course. this is why we're here, and this is what we do what we do, to be
1:37 am
able to be there for them until the very last minute because if there's even the slightest possibility of a live victim being found, whether that's by voice or detection by technical equipment, then the rescue teams will go for it, and it is for those moments that we keep ongoing, despite the challenges. >> sadly, though, as the hours and days go by, hope is starting to fade in terms of finding survivors. how are those who have lost so much coping mentally and emotionally with all of this? >> yes. i mean, currently we're working rubble sites and work sites throughout the region, we still see families of those who have already lost their loved ones watching us in -- working at those work sites because for the sake of others they want, you know, people from their communities to survive, and
1:38 am
so -- but in terms of how they're coping with the atmosphere and the environment is, as you said in your report, some cities are reduced to ghost towns and plunged into complete darkness overnight with people living in trucks or cars or makeshift tents, with little bonfires, as much as they can find in the cold weather, and it is the emotional and physical distress that they're going through is -- is, at least for this region, hasn't been gone through. it hasn't happened in decades. >> it's so tough to see, and the people you're working with, and your team, i mean, the vast majority of them are volunteers who themselves might be affected in terms of their homes, or even their own relatives. >> that's right. and of course remember that a lot of these -- a lot of our volunteers that we have currently, just under a thousand on the field across the ten provinces, a lot of our volunteers' families have lived through earthquakes and have been affected by them in -- at
1:39 am
some point earlier in their lives. and so they have been through something similar that many of the volunteers here we have, or the victims here that we face on the ground. and because we're just an ngo, and we don't -- we only go by donations. and our volunteers are not paid to be here. they're here because they want to be here, and because they want to help as many people that we can, and as quickly and as safely as possible within the very, very tight window that's remaining. >> yeah. we only have a minute left. you did mention donations. the need is so great. what more can the international community do? >> there is a great effort for like relief items such as food and shelter for those -- for those, the victims that have survived so far. but a lot of the teams on the ground, because of the extreme cold, we're starting to see more malfunctions in technical equipment, especially when it comes to technical visual
1:40 am
seismic equipment, and that kind of donations, if we can get those on the ground as soon as we can, then that will -- that will probably give us a little more chance of finding survivors because the adverse weather and the low temperatures is affecting the technical equipment that we're using currently. >> yeah, i can imagine. well, listen, we wish you all the best luck to you, and your team across the country, as they try and help so many people still in need, thank you so much, appreciate it. >> thank you, kim. in mosques around the world, an outpouring of prayers for the victims of the earthquake in turkey and syria. have a look in indonesia, many gathered to express their sorrow. they said they hoped aid moving into the quake zone will do some good. indonesia is sending food and medicine, as well as a search and rescue team. special services were also held in india, with worshippers holding signs to show their support for victims, some praying for mercy for anyone still stuck in the rubble and
1:41 am
similar scenes in pakistan, where mosques were packed with people remembering the thousands who have died. and if you're looking for information on how to help earthquake survivors, you can go to, and there you can find a list of organizations working on rescue and relief efforts. again, that's a washington state grocery store, and a big act of kindness, donating its share of lottery winnings to a food bank. that story is coming up after the break. please stay with us. ist. connect to nature. moderate to severe eczema still disrupts my skskin. despite treatment it disrupts my skin with itch. it disrupts my skin with rh. but no i can disrupt eczema with rinvoq. rinvoq is not a steroid, topical, or injection. it's one pill, oe a day, that's effective

1:46 am
i'm joined now by todd cam meyer president of fred meyer stores and debbie christian executive director of the auburn food bank. thanks so much for being here with us. i'm going to start with you, todd, more than $750 million up for grabs, the fifth largest jackpot in history, how crazy was the rush to buy tickets and what was the build-up like to the announcement? >> well, obviously when the jackpot gets that big it's definitely a big rush from the public to go out and buy lottery tickets. we definitely saw that is the -- the dollar amount continued to build, and then earlier this week we were just delighted and super excited to hear that the winning ticket for the power ball happened to be sold in our auburn, seattle fred myers store, and again, very excited. not only for us, but also our store associates were just thrilled with the winning ticket being sold in their community. >> and debbie, i mean, were you following this lottery at all?
1:47 am
>> not at all. >> well, it's a big thing as well, because the state lottery gave your store a $50,000 selling bonus. so walk us through the decision to give it all away. >> when we heard about the $50,000 win that -- or the amount that would come to our store we thought about how can we give back? that's when we really decided to give that back to the community, in the form of a donation to the food bank. and our -- we really wanted to do that on behalf of our store associates. that's when we got in touch with debbie, and her team, to really make that happen. and we just couldn't be more excited and proud, on behalf of our associates, to make this presentation to them to benefit so many. >> all right, so then, debbie, you know, we just played some video of your reaction at the time when you got the money.
1:48 am
so explain to us what was going through your mind, through your mind when they told you that you were going to get this -- get this money? >> you know, you're always speechless. your heart races. you're trying to figure out maybe if it's really real and they got the right information. the gal that called was sort of stuttering and trying to get it out because she was so excited. and, you know, then she's trying to explain it. and let me know that this money's coming to us from the store, and you're still processing and you're trying to figure out who are they really? are they really calling me? and of course for us, one of her questions was, will you accept it? and it's like, i'm crazy not to. so we are very blessed. fred meyers has always been good to us. we get donations of food from
1:49 am
them every morning. we're a partner already. but to have this come to us in this cash form is a huge blessing. this has been a hard year. >> that's exactly it. what kind of blessing is it, then $50,000 to help your community in the environment that we're in right now? >> so it's hard to make purchases. it has been since, you know, mid-covid all the way through. and then coming out of covid you kind of thought everything was going to go back to normal and we'd all be fine but the stores were still struggling to get their shelves filled, and when they don't have it on their shelf, i can't buy it either. this money to help us continue to buy food. and right now the biggest thing we've been down on has been fresh produce. so that will be definitely one of the first purchases that we turn around and try to make and try to keep some fresh stuff in the store. >> listen, it's a small example
