2:01 am
it is friday may 8th. it's 5:00 a.m. in the east. we have breaking news from the united kingdom. a stunner of an election. this one was supposed to be close. more than close. like deadlocked. they were expecting overtime here. days to form a governing coalition. no! much closer to a blowout. the incumbent conservative party will remain in power. prime minister david cameron keeping his job. actually in some ways expanding his power. let's go live to erin mclaughlin live in edinburgh. >> reporter: you know many people thought the british prime minister david cameron was going to struggle holding on to downing street. all polls pointing to a hung
2:02 am
parliament. right now, according to some projections, the conservatives stand to gain a majority seats in parliament. shocking many people. prime minister tweeting out a picture of himself as well as his wife samantha in celebration. promising a better future for everyone. >> some people say, in fact i often said there is one opinion poll that counts. that's the one on election day. i'm not sure that has ever been truer than today and tonight. >> reporter: meanwhile, up north, the revolution. scottish national party. the party responsible for the referendum referendum they wanted independence for scotland. they now have 56 seats. the most that party has ever had
2:03 am
in u.k. history was 11 seats. those gains made on the back of the labour opposition party here in the united kingdom. we expect to hear from ed miliband to resign and expecting a victory speech from prime minister david cameron. john. >> a seismic result not the one that was expected. erin mclaughlin, thank you. new england patriots quarterback tom brady doesn't have any reaction to an nfl report concluding he likely knew about footballs being deflated during the afc title game. coy wire joins us live now with the latest. you know he even said there's been only 30 hours since the report came out. i am not ready to react yet. how can he not prepare a statement? he has a team advising him? i'm surprised he did not have a statement. >> i'm with you, christine.
2:04 am
i think a lot of people are as well. he made his first public appearance and first comment since the wells' report was released. he was aware of the deflation of footballs in the afc title game. he was in front of a crowd at salem state university. he said he hasn't had time to digest the deflate gate report. here's exactly what he said christine. >> i don't have really any reaction. our owner commented on it yesterday. it's only been 30 hours. i have not had much time to digest it fully. when i do, i'll let you know how i feel about it. >> is the super bowl tainted? >> what do you guys think? neither do i. >> has this however, detracted from your joy of winning the super bowl? >> absolutely not.
2:05 am
>> why not? >> because we earned and achieved everything we got this year as a team. i'm proud of that and our fans should be too. >> brady played to the crowd and addressed the position. he never stuck his flag in the ground. his agent don yee told anderson cooper that he had no knowledge of footballs deflated. this is his addressing the wells report saying it had flaws. now we will wait to see what the nfl has to say in terms of punishment. will brady get a suspension? will the team lose draft picks? the nfl hasn't given a timeline, christine. they will respond to this in the next few days. i'm with you, christine. i think a lot of people were wanting a bit more from tom brady. >> there are others who say it is time to move on.
2:06 am
john berman hasn't stopped crying. he is not weeping, anymore, coy. this process isn't over. it sounds as though don yee, his agent, are fighting the process. >> it is seems like brady didn't want to go out on record before the punishment. he wanted to keep his hands clean. he is happy to have his agent do the dirty work. coy wire thanks so much. >> you're welcome. developing this morning, the fbi holding a conference call with local law enforcement today to define violent extremists in the u.s. extremists like elton simpson and nadir soofi. both shot dead by police as they tried to attack a texas contest to draw cartoons of the prophet muhammad. james comey told reporter there is are perhaps thousands of extremists in the united states like simpson being fed what he
2:07 am
called isis poison online. multiple officials tell cnn that simpson was in private contact with overseas jihadists encourageing some attacks. also learning the fbi did warn police in garland, texas about simpson's interest in the cartoon contest. let's get more from pamela brown. >> reporter: john and christine, james comey met with a small group of reporters and said the fbi actually sent a warning to local authorities in garland, texas, three hours before elton simpson arrived with the accomplice and opened fire. we learned that the fbi sent a picture to local authorities and a possible license plate. this was just a bulletin. the fbi apparently had no idea that elton simpson had left his home here in phoenix, arizona and was driving to dallas in order to launch this attack.
2:08 am
it saw simpson's social media post talking about the event. the concern was he was someone, an extremist they had their eyes on that they had an investigation on tweeting about this. so they alerted authorities. apparently the fbi had a list of people of possible extremists who may want to target the event and elton simpson was part of that list. also director comey talked about the hundreds if not thousands of people in the u.s. following isis online. he says it is a big concern and there are hundreds of investigations into possible extremists. he said it is like finding a needle in a haystack and increasingly that needle is invisible. john and christine. >> pamela, thank you for that. senior commander for al qaeda killed bring a u.s. drone strike. nasser al ansi had become a public face in the terror group.

>> reporter: john and christine, the federal appeals court re veals the stockpiles of telephone data is illegal under the patriot act. the collection exceeds the scope of the law as intended. the judge wrote the sheer volume of information sought is staggering. the court did not rule it was unconstitutional unconstitutional. they sent it back to the lower court. the section of the patriot act that the government interpreted to collect the phone data expires next month anyway. it is up for review. the patriot act was established in 2001 after september 11th. it was renewed by president bush and president obama. president obama says now it is expiring it should be reformed. there has been legislation proposed and ideas such as this data could be collected, but stored by a third party so the government would not own it and control it.
2:11 am
the government would have to ask permission on a case-by-case basis when it wanted to access this data. some in congress lately especially with the threat of isis have been saying let's take a look at this and not water down this kind of legislation because it is necessary to national security. john and christine. >> thank you, michelle. time for an early start on your money. good day so far for stocks around the world. european shares up getting a boost from the u.k. election. asian shares are up as well. blue bell ice cream will not be back on shelves soon. the government report shows that the company knew about listeria contamination as far as 2013. it did not recall products until last month. inspectors found the process for cleaning equipment was

the u.s. military is now training syrian rebels for the fight against isis. this program launched wednesday in jordan. the pentagon plans to train more than 5,000 hand picked syrians each year at locations in qatar
2:24 am
and saudi arabia and jordan. >> these are highly vetted individuals. that's an important part of the program. second, the training takes place in a secure location. third, our people participating in the training are very experienced. >> i want to bring in senior correspondent nick paton walsh. nick how are they deciding who to train and arm here? >> reporter: a complex vetting process which is involving psychological testing and background checks. at this stage, it is 90. we are losing power here. you may not be able to hear me. we are talking about 90 in the first wave initially trained of a group that will go on to be 400 strong in terms of the vetted on the list. that is a list of 3,000 who applied to be part of the program.
2:25 am
the 400 u.s. military trainers. the question is does that 3,000 expand to other numbers? there are tens of thousands of rebels of various description that play on the syrian battle field right now. the question is what to do. the u.s. trained troops will be better equipped and have better weaponry. the radios and medical training as well. vehicles. do they though as initially thought, just end up defending their towns from isis or be dragged into other fights that may have more radical ideology than them? the second question the u.s. must be asking is what happens if these rebels come under attack and they spent all this money and time training. do they come to defense with power and artillery? some say it is far too little as far as western intervention. over a four-year long conflict.
2:26 am
where does this stop for the western allies. >> thanks for that nick. we have breaking news. at least six people are dead in pakistan. a military helicopter carrying foreign diplomats crashed. the military spokesman tweeted two pilots and four foreigners killed. the chopper crashed into a school and exploded into a fire ball. we need more details. including the nationalities of the non pakistanis in the crash. other breaking news this morning. big night for conservatives in britain. big changes in scotland. election results are in. we are breaking it down for you next. it begins from the second we're born. after all, healthier doesn't happen all by itself. it needs to be earned... every day...

2:31 am
we have breaking news from the united kingdom. this had been forecast as a close election but it wasn't. returns coming in show solid gain force the incumbent conservative party. prime minister david cameron will keep his job. he is on his way to meet the queen. let's go live to erin mclaughlin live in edinburgh. this is not what the polls predicted. >> reporter: certainly not, christine. shocking and unprecedented. all words used to describe the election in the coming hours of the projections. prime minister david cameron is expected to meet with the queen to request permission to form a government. really unexpected result today. poll after poll after poll in the weeks building up to the elections showed all signs pointing to a hung parliament.
2:32 am
now as it stands it looks like the conservative government poised to form a majority. the prime minister tweeting out a picture of himself and his wife samantha promising a better future for everyone. take a listen. >> some people say, and in fact i only said there is only one opinion poll that counts and that is on election day. >> reporter: now in stark contrast to what is happening down south, here in scotland an absolute political earthquake. the scottish national party is the party that was responsible for the referendum that failed back in september. they want independence for scotland and more powers for scotland. they managed to go from six seats overnight to a record for them 56 seats. the most seats this party has ever had is 11.
2:33 am
that is, of course, on the back of labour. scotland being a labour strong hold. in the coming hours, we expect to see ed miliband resign. christine. >> thank you, erin. new england patriots quarterback tom brady says he has no reaction to the report yet that he had a general general awareness that the footballs were deflated before the afc championship title game. he spoke before salem state university's out. coy wire he spoke, but did not say much coy. >> that is right. tom brady made his first public comments since the wells report was released. that report, as you mentioned, brady was aware of the deflated footballs before the afc game. he was in front of the crowd fighting new england patriots fans at salem state.
2:34 am
he said he hadn't had time to reflect. >> i don't have any reaction. our owner commented on it yesterday. it's only been 30 hours. i haven't had much time to digest it fully. when i do i will let you know how i feel about it. >> is the super bowl tainted? should there be an asterisk? >> what do guys think? >> has this however, detracted from your joy of winning the super bowl? >> absolutely not. >> why not? >> because we earned and achieved everything we got this year as a team. i'm very proud of that and our fans should be too. >> brady, you saw him playing the crowd. he addressed the situation, but
2:35 am
the wells report jabbed at him. his agent don yee told cnn brady did not have knowledge of deflated footballs. yee said the report had tragic flaws. now we will see what the nfl has to say. will they punish them? will there be any punishment at all? will brady get a suspension? will the patriots lose draft picks? it has to be in the coming days. >> i mean i think what brady is waiting for is to see what the nfl is going to do. what punishment will be levied. it will be interesting to see if he gets suspended. if he lashes out the way his agent did, that is not a side that tom brady gets to experience with the public. and seeking help finding violent extremists.

both men shot death by police as they attacked a texas contest to draw the prophet muhammad. the fbi director telling reporters there are perhaps thousands of extremists in the u.s. like simpson being fed what he called isis poison online. multiple officials said simpson was in private contact with overseas with jihadists. sources say simpson likely chose the target on his own. we are learning that the fbi did warn the police in garland about simpson's interests about the cartoon contest hours before he attacked it. pamela brown has more. >> reporter: john and christine, fbi director james comey met with a small group of reporters and said the fbi sent a warning to garland, texas authorities, three hours before elton simpson arrived with his accomplice and

opened fire. the fbi sent a picture to local authorities and possible license plate. this was just a bulletin. the fbi apparently had no idea that elton simpson has left his home here in phoenix, arizona and was driving to dallas in order to launch the attack. it only saw simpson's social media post talking about the event. of course the concern was that he was someone, an extremist that they had their eyes on and they had an investigation on tweeting about this. so they alerted authorities. apparently the fbi had a list of people of possible extremists who may want to target the event and elton simpson was part of the list. also, director comey talked about the hundreds of thousands of people in the u.s. following isis online. he says it is a big concern and there are hundreds of investigations into possible extremists. he said it is like finding a

2:42 am
victoza is not insulin. do not take victoza if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include swelling of face lips, tongue or throat fainting or dizziness, very rapid heartbeat problems breathing or swallowing, severe rash or itching. tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck. serious side effects may happen in people who take victoza including inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis) which may be fatal. stop taking victoza and call your doctor right away if you have signs of pancreatitis, such as severe pain that will not go away in your abdomen or from your abdomen to your back with or without vomiting. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. taking victoza with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. the most common side effects are nausea, diarrhea, and headache. some side effects can lead to dehydration,

which may cause kidney problems. if your pill isn't giving you the control you need... ask your doctor about non-insulin victoza. it's covered by most health plans. they're custom made trains. you can't get any better than that. siemens trains are not your grandparent's technology. they're something that's gonna change the cities we live in today. i find it so fascinating how many people ride this and go to work every single day. i'm one of the lucky guys. i get to play with trains. people say, "wow, we still build that in the united states?" and we say, "yeah, we do!"
