members involved. >> the repercussions are just beginning. a top recruit from the dallas area is stating he will decommit and go elsewhere. current member eric striker denounced the video on snapchat. he said he was hurt by the video and what it brought on to the university. >> it is laying out straight and it is out there. i'm not saying it hasn't happened before. this is something that really extreme. not saying the little things that happened before should be pushed under the rug. we believe that president boren is taking the right actions and investigating and doing the right thing. more than just suspensions and expelling these students. the people responsible for it. the people on the bus. this is how we feel that that action should take place. students should get expelled
that had to do with that. the ones on the bus. >> early monday hundreds of students and faculty members marched silently to protest the video. they were joined by university president david boren that real sooners, he said are not racist. new demonstrations in madison, wisconsin after the shooting of the unarmed teenager. students walked out of classes and walked to the state capital. ryan young has more. >> reporter: john and christine, we saw the frustration here in madison, wisconsin as thousands of people walked to the state capital to show displeasure of the shooting death of the teen. you could see the growing memorial for 19-year-old tony robinson. it has been growing throughout the afternoon. they have been raising signs to show support for the young man. they tell us they plan to have more protests. a lot of questions involved in
the case. originally police were called because of a disturbance. once a police officer arrived, he heard noises on the inside of the home. once he went inside a struggle happened and shots were fired. the 19-year-old was pronounced dead. the community wants answers. one thing we have noticed, the protests have remained peaceful. this is not another ferguson according to the community here. they plan to ask questions and get to the bottom of this. >> thank you. the subject of ferguson the judge resigned after the scathing report accusing ronald brockmeyer. the missouri supreme court is also tasking richter with restoring public trust in the ferguson courts. he will begin his post on march 16th. extraordinary tension with
the white house and republicans after 47 senate republicans signed an open letter to iran. that letter declares that unless congress has its say any nuclear deal with iran could be null and void after the president leaves office. arkansas senator tom cotton leading the charge. >> i support a deal that stops iran from getting a nuclear weapon today and tomorrow and forever. the president said that a deal could have as little as a ten-year sunset on it. the national security advisor said that iran could have uranium enrichment abilityiesabilities. whatever else the terms of the future deal might be those terms make the deal unacceptable to the united states and world because they pave the way for iran to get a nuclear weapon. >> from the white house, cnn's michelle kosinski. >> reporter: john and christine, we have seen some in congress bring up legislation to give them a vote on any nuclear deal
with iran. now 47 republicans have written the unprecedented open letter to iran. asserting they have an important role in the process. acting as a warning. given the way the deal is currently worked on, the president doesn't have to send to congress for a vote. they write we will consider any deal for nuclear weapons not approved by the congress as nothing more than an executive agreement with the president and ayatollah khomeini. this letter came quickly from the white house calling it a bizarre desperate ploy. it weakens america's hand and particularly interesting was hearing the white house say that what they are trying to do amounts to back channel communications with iranian hard liners. >> i think it is somewhat ironic
to see some members of congress wanting to make common cause with the hard liners in iran. it is an unusual coalition. >> reporter: congress would have a vote in this process on removing those tough sanctions from iran or not. if that is part of a deal. the white house now says that would come years down the road from a deal. it would take a number of years, they said to first see if iran was in fact compliant. by the way, iran responded to the letter calling it a propaganda ploy. john and christine. >> thanks michelle. the vice president joe biden not happy with the 47 senate republicans who sent the letter to the iranian leader. the vice president released a statement saying the letter express edly designed to undercut a sitting president in the middle of negotiations is beneath the dignity of the institution i revere.
this ignores two precedents to negotiates with other nations on behalf of the united states. secretary of state john kerry will return to switzerland to resume nuclear talks. new developments in the struggle for tikrit. america's top general joint chief chairman martin dempsey is in baghdad vowing that isis will be defeated. let's bring in cnn's ben wedeman. >> reporter: good morning, christine. general dempsey was here yesterday meeting with the iraqi prime minister and defense minister. here perhaps to stress that the united states is and international coalition are playing a key role in the fight against isis. the u.s. officials have made clear that the international coalition since last september
launched more than 2,000 strikes. coalition has trained or is in the process of training more than 5,000 iraqi soldiers. although there is a lot of talk these days about iran backing up the iraqi forces outside tikrit indeed the coalition is providing significant support and of course looking ahead to mosul. that support will be critical if isis is to be driven out of that iraq's second largest city. as far as tikrit goes we saw iraqi forces which appear to be led by the shi'a para military forces. we saw in the last three days they moved about 50 miles to the very edge just one mile outside of tikrit. we watched as they were firing rockets into the city. a lot of forces gathered there for a push forward toward the
west. we did however also see that indeed there is iranian involvement. i had a chance to speak discreetly with four iranian advisers. they told me or described their role there as volunteers. i also spoke to the head of the largest shi'a militia. he said as far as the coalition goes we don't need it and we won't need it. we will be able to liberate all of iraq from isis by ourselves. when he was speaking about the iranian advisers the iranian role in the operation, he said we thank them deeply. >> ben wedeman. we thank them deeply before our signal cut out. thanks, ben. niens after the hour. two french medalists were those killed in a helicopter crash in

tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto® tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is proven to reduce the risk of dvt and pe, with no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for me. ask your doctor about xarelto® today.

world. >> the president responded suggesting that senate republicans are essentially forming an alliance with iranian hard liners who also oppose a nuclear deal. >> i think it is ironic to see some members of congress wanting to make common cause with the hard liners with iran. it is an unusual coalition. i think what we are going to focus on is seeing if we can get a deal or not. >> vice president joe biden lashed out at senate republicans at a statement. the vice president said the letter expressly designed to under cut a sitting president in the middle of international negotiations is beneath the dignity of the institution i revere. the guise ignores two centuries of precedent and undermines any future president to negotiate on behalf of the united states. nuclear talk was iran resume

so given that all eyes in iraq are on tikrit, where there is -- eye -- ran yan involvement. as far as the situation in tikrit goes iraqi forces which are led by the shi'a paramilitary forces with the iraqi army forces playing a supporting role seem to be making significant progress. we saw at the frontlines of smoldering vehicles. in three days in fact the iraqi forces managed to advance 50 miles to the very edge of tikrit. when we were there, they were one mile to the east of the center of the city. yes, there is an iranian role being played there. i had the opportunity to speak to four iranian advisers at the
front line. they described themselves as volunteers. what we did hear from the iraqi commanders is that yes they say they're proud and happy to have the iranian advisers on the ground helping them. one of them telling me it is better to have four iranian advisors on the frontline than 400 american advisors in the green zone in baghdad. thank you, ben. >> hillary clinton will answer questions on what some are calling the e-mail scandal that has been dogging her for weeks. a conference or sit down interview could come within 48 hours according to a source. the former secretary of state is expected to say she did use a classified government e-mail system at the state department but cannot use it with her blackberry because the system was too antiquated. the white house says the president and the former secretary did exchange e-mails during her tenure at the state

terrorism cases can put people under questioning for up to six days in terrorism cases without laying charges. some point along the line though we suspect he will come out and say what these charges are against the four people. the most startling of the four is the police woman who worked not only a police woman involved but worked at one of the police intelligence agencies in the eastern suburbs of paris. a super secret operation. she apparently according to reports, converted to islam two years ago. about three weeks ago, she told her superiors that she knew coulibaly and she knew the associate of coulibaly who was apparently her boyfriend who was picked up. she was suspended at that point from her duties at the center. >> raises a lot of questions. again, the suspects will be in custody or people in custody for
