6:00 comes early on saturday. we're glad you're up with us. i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. good to be with you. this just in. >> what an ad for hillary clinton slamming donald trump for not releasing his tax returns. what's interesting about this ad, she doesn't say anything, there is not a picture of her. but this coming after bizarre revelations that donald trump allegedly posed as his own publicist years ago. >> all this coming just as things seem to start going his way after his meeting with speaker paul ryan, his big push to get republican leaders to back him. >> reporter: donald trump taking a hit from hillary clinton in a new video that asks, why won't he release his taxes? >> he will not follow the example of every single democratic and republican presidential nominee since 1976. >> reporter: but the billionaire, he's not budging. >> when the audit ends up i'll
present them. i hope it is before the election. >> reporter: sounding down right defiant. >> what is your tax rate? >> it's none of your business. you'll see it when i release. but i fight very hard to pay as little tax as possible. >> reporter: he's not required to release his taxes -- but -- >> i think mr. trump's got to make a decision sooner rather than later about whether or not to release his tax returns. >> then there is this voice from the past. >> what's your name again? >> john miller. >> that sounds a lot like the voice from the present. what do you hear? trump dodged by questions whether he posed as imaginary staffers to deal with reporters' questions about his love life and his personal drama. listen to this "people" magazine interview uncovered by "the washington post" about his break-up with marla maples. >> what kind of comment is coming from your agent or from
donald? >> he really decided he didn't want to make a commitment. he's coming out of a marriage and he's starting to do tremendously well financially. >> reporter: trump has admitted to using a pseudonym on the past says the voice on that call was not his. >> no, i don't anything about it. you're telling me about it for the first time and it doesn't sound like my voice at all. i have many, many people that are trying to imstate my voice. you can imagine that. this sounds like one of the scams, one of the many scams. doesn't sound like me. >> reporter: but there is some evidence that the presumptive gop nominee is settling in as a party leader. when his former long-time butler argued on facebook that president obama "should have been taken out by our military and shot as an enemy agent" seem trump acted fast to say, we totally and completely disavow the horrible statements by him regarding the president. >> i think donald trump did the right thing by disavowing that statement and distancing himself from it. >> a lot to get to this morning
so let's bring in jeffrey lord, cnn political commentator and donald trump supporter. evan siegfried, former rubio supporter and republican strategist. >> good morning, dr. blackwell. >> good morning to you. let's start here with the taxes and this new ad out this morning from the clinton campaign. jeffrey, how long can this campaign go on without the disclosure of those tax returns? >> it go on quite a long way. victor, i have to say this has only been going on for about 40 years. now that we've gotten into this, i think this is a worthless exercise and a political gotcha exercise. at this point, we've had plendy of great presidents who never released their taxes. this has only been going on for 40 years. this is one ever these politically correct things. >> you say only 40 years as if it's only 40 minutes. your boss released them, ronald reagan released his going back to '76. we've got a lot to get to. he have been, weigh in on the
tax disclosure. >> well, i find it a little strange. on april 15th, trump said he looked forward to releasing his taxes. you guys at cnn actually reported that donald trump has previously released his tax returns when it comes to the state gaming officials when he wants to build a casino. but he's up for the ultimate job interview, president of the united states. it is the people's business to find out whether or not he's doing any shady business dealings. that's really the bottom line. >> let's get to this recording from the early '90s. jeffrey, start with you on this. do you believe that this john miller character is donald trump? >> he says, unequivocally, unequivocally, i have to add, that it wasn't him. and in this day and daj, victor, where you can have photographs "of abraham lincoln having tea with adolf hitler with photo shopping -- >> but he has admitted to doing this in the past. >> yeah, but we don't know about this tape.
i just am wary. the more i have gotten into this thing. i just think the whole thing is silly, to be perfectly candid. >> evan, what's the context here? >> jeffrey is right, on its own this thing is entirely silly. but it goes toward character. it shows that this is a guy who is a shameless self-promoter and he'll say anything. really when you start talking about character, we are talking about donald trump who's openly admired the chinese for the tiananmen square massacre, and commending kim jong-il for getting rid of his critics. >> a member of the gop with deep rockets supports republicans cycle after cycle, sheldon adelson. his contribution to trump alone could exceed $100 million.
to do that he'll have to go through a super pac. let me read what donald trump said in october relating to super pacs. a quote through a statement from his website, i am self-funding my campaign, and therefore i will not be controlled by the donors. special interests, rob leeists have corrupted or politics and politicians for far too long. i have disavowed all super pacs, requested the return of all donations made to said pacs and i am calling on all presidential candidates to do the same. reportedly this commitment of monies came through a personal call between adelson and trump. is it at the very least, jeffrey, a contradiction and maybe a full flip-flop? >> we're now headed into the fall campaign, and as you know once you become a nominee of the party, money goes to the party. it is a whole different ball game. i'd like to see how this works itself out. >> rt roedly adelson is shopping for a super pac to support
specifically trump. >> i think super pacs are the bain of our political existence and get rid of them and just contribute directly to candidates. that's not happening. donald trump has said what he's said and i think that's the end of it there. >> is that not a direct contradiction to what he said just a couple of months ago? >> no, i don't think so. a super pac is not donald trump himself. >> he disavowed those. evan, let me come to you. we heard from donald trump in october. disavowing the super pacs supporting his campaign. he said that those super pacs, the dark money is what has ruined politics. and now he's having a conversation with sheldon adelson who is committing what could be more than $100 million. >> listen, donald trump went out from day one of his campaign and said he was going to self-fund his campaign, yet he had a donate button on his campaign website since day one as well. he has releetedly said when he was pitching voters, he said, listen, i'm going to self-fund, i can't be bought, i can't have any super pacs behind me, nobody
can control me. now he's having to go around and beg for money. it is going to take half a billion dollars to be successful in the presidential race. that's just in terms of his candidacy alone. for get super pacs. and he is very wealthy. he claims he is a multi-billionaire. he could easily throw that in on his own but now he wants to raise money and be beholden to the very people he's slammed throughout this campaign. >> we'll continue the conversation this morning, gentlemen. thank you both. also new this morning, in an extraordinary move, drug giant pfizer is making it more difficult to carry out lethal injections. the second largest pharmaceutical company in the world is blocking its drug from being used in executions. pfizer says it wants is drugs used to enhance and save lives instead of being used for capital punishment. lethal injection is a primary means of execution in all 31 death penalty states.
los angeles police investigating a shooting involving one of their officers this morning. officers say he was injured last night around 8:30 pacific time. that suspect is dead, the officer is in stable condition. police have not given a lot of details about what happened or led up to the shooting. also the tsa will speed up the hiring of more than 750 additional screeners in the coming weeks to grow with growing security wait times. if you've been to the airport, you know what i'm talking about. and with the travel season arriving, you know this cannot come soon enough. airports and passengers have both been complaining, but loudly, over "insane" wait times of up to two hours. lot of frustrated travelers have to turn to social media as well venting using the #ihatethewait. a new jersey family has come forward as the sole winners of the $430 million powerball jackpot. a mother and her seven adult children elected to split a lump sum payout which comes to $35
million a piece prior to taxes. the matriarch of the family apparently chose the winning numbers based on a dream! listen to your dreams, people! >> it's amaze that on mother's day she gave her children $35 million each. >> pretty happy with that. >> congratulations to them, by the way. let's turn to a serious issue now. the issue of gender identity. . very emotional battle over transgender americans, bathroom use in schools angering and frustrating parents and lawmakers. >> we'll talk about that. also, taking the fight to the terrorists. the isis strong hold in syria now thought to be under a state of emergency as it prepares for a possible onslaught. and later in the hour, a young man who gave hope to others desperate to escape the gang culture he grew up in is found shot to death. >> it was positive and it was inspiring. because we know that all of our
we ate anything. until i decided we both needed to eat better. now jake gets purina cat chow naturals indoor a nutritious formula for indoor cats with no artificial flavors. it helps to control hairballs and maintain a healthy weight. so these days, we're both eating better. naturally!! purina cat chow. nutrition to build better lives.
a branch catches me here.our. you think that stopped me? i was about to be the first 3rd grader to jump the cook county creek. jump 50 feet over the rapids and i crash land. mom patched me up. check out my scar. there's nothing there! you didn't jump the creek! what? now there's a new neosporin antibiotic that keeps her protected and minimizes scars. new neosporin plus pain itch scar ram trucks are reaching new heights when it comes to capability and efficiency.
the ram heavy duty is the most capable full-sized pickup on the road today. and, the ram 1500 is the most fuel-efficient, full-sized pickup. ever. so what does that mean? it means ram trucks give you the best of both worlds. so go big. and go far. guts. glory. ram. kind of like this look. i'm calling it the "name your price tool" phase. whatever. school districts across the country face a choice. allow transgender students to choose which restroom they use or face consequences. >> in a joint letters, the dv s departments of education and justice issues new guidelines to
all public schools -- fall if line or lose federal funding. but some states are putting up a fight. here's cnn's nick valencia. >> we will not yield to blackmail from the president of the united states. >> reporter: the federal government calls them guidelines. but several states, including texas, see them more as a threat. >> this goes against the values of so many people. it has nothing to do with anyone being against a transgender child. >> reporter: at a friday morning press conference, texas lieutenant governor dan patrick says a line has been crossed by the federal government after the department of justice sent a letter on transgender bathroom use in public schools across the united states. >> i'm telling all the superintendents in texas right now, you have about three weeks left of the school year. do not enact this policy. >> reporter: in the letter, attorney general loretta lynch writes, there is no room in our schools for discrimination of any kind, including discrimination against transgender students on the basis of their sex. under the guidelines, public
schools that receive federal money are obligated to treat students consistent with their gender identity, even if their records indicate a different sex. access sex segregated facilities consistent with a student's gender identity and protect a student's privacy related to their transgender status. the action sets the stage for a legal battle that's been in the making since march. house bill 2 in north carolina began the recent controversy. the law requires trans people to use the public restroom related to the gender on their birth certificate, not how they identify. candice cox has been one of the most outspoken against the law. she's a transgender woman and has met with the north carolina governor. >> the fact that we are not talking about transgender people and who they are, but rather we don't want someone who "looks" like a man or "looks" like a
woman but identifies as the opposite gender lets me know we are still discriminating on aesthetics. >> north carolina and the feds have traded accusations and lawsuits. some states, including arkansas and texas, insist there's been government overreach. the feds say civil rights have been violated. >> this is not just a north carolina issue. this is now a national issue. >> reporter: nick valencia, cnn, atlanta. >> target is not backing down from its stand for transgender rights. the ceo is defending the company's policy allowing transgender people to use the restroom based on their gender identity. >> if we went back to the mid '60s, our company was one of the very first to use african-american models in their advertising. and back then, it wasn't well received. we had a lot of tough feedback. but sitting here today, we know we made the right decision. if there's a question of safety, i can tell you and others -- our
focus on safety is unwavering and we want to make sure we provide a welcoming environment for all of our guests, one that's safe, one that's comfortable, and that's our commitment over time. >> the ceo says the stores will install family bathrooms at all of its 1,800 locations across the country. a lot of the controversial centers around the idea that women and girls need to be safe from men in public restrooms. but a lot of people are concerned obviously for transgender people who aren't accepted in either restroom. this is a real struggle for everyone involved here. so today on "cnn newsroom" at 10:00, you'll hear from two young people, one a transgender man and another a transgender teen girl who are sharing their struggles with gender identity with us and the fear that comes with using the wrong bathroom and the things that they're now being asked to do. we hope you'll be with us at 10:00 because it is an important voice to hear. >> we into ed to hear from all

inside itself declared capital of raqqa, syria. >> this comes as u.s. defense forces are starting to surround the isis strong hold. our pentagon correspondent barbara starr has more. >> reporter: u.s. military officials have been closely monitoring social media and other reports that isis has declared a state of emergency in raqqa, itself declared capital inside syria. that is a stronghold isis holds very dear. they've been in control of it for some time. what does this state of emergency really mean? u.s. officials have some evidence isis fighters are moving around in the city, some of them trying to leave the city, that they're putting up covers, shades, trying to cover sidewalks, areas where they may be. all to try and stay hidden from potential air strikes or ground
action. isis may in fact be getting nervous in raqqa. they have seen militia movements move closer and closer. all of this making the group, maybe for the first time, very nervous about being able to hold on to the city that they consider their capital barbara starr, cnn, the pentagon. one of osama bin laden's sons could be preparing for a bigger role within al qaeda. another video has surfaced that apparently features the voice of hamzi bin laden. this is an earlier recording. he's now in his 20s. one of the newer tapes, at least this one, bin laden calls for unity among jihadi militants fighting in syria. it is the second recording of his voice to appear in a year. thousands of people lined the streets of coronado, california to mourn a navy seal killed in iraq when a handful of
advisors were killed by more than 100 isis fighters, charles keating iv was sent in to rescue him. you see them honoring him there. his death is the third american combat loss since the u.s. redeployed forces to iraq just about two years ago back in the summer of 2014. certainly thoughts and prayers to his family and to all of the folks there. prince's sister makes a big announcement on facebook in memory of the music icon. also, more politics and hillary clinton's strategy against donald trump. should she counter his attacks? should we take the high road? wait until you see the new ad that she released this morning.

[ purple rain purple rain ♪ >> his fans continue to mourn the death of musical icon, prince. his family is now planning to pay tribute to him this summer. >> prince's sister announced on facebook a plan for a public memorial and tribute. this will happen in august, she says. the news comes as his church prepares a memorial for him tomorrow. the singer was found dead in an elevator at his paisley park estate last month. he was just 57 years old. america's so-called toughest sheriff could face jail time if a federal court ruling later this month goes against him. a federal judge yesterday found sheriff joe arpaio of maricopa county, arizona in civil
contempt for not doing enough to halt racial profiling by his deputies. a judge could refer the case for criminal contempt charges at a hearing that's on may 31st. arpaio's department has been under fire ever since a federal investigation found a widespread pattern of discrimination against latinos. the gun used to fatally shoot trayvon martin will stay on the auction block, at least for the next few days, according to the website where george zimmerman has put his .9 millimeter handgun for sail. prank bidders have dogged the site ever since. at one point a fake bid of $65 million was offered. new this morning, in fact out in just the last few minutes, hillary clinton slamming donald trump in a new ad for refusing to release his tax returns. this comes of course after trump denied posing as his own publicist back in the '90s. >> meanwhile, donald trump did
meet with paul ryan in washington hoping to win his support and they released this joint statement, "while we were honest about our few differences, we recognize that there are also many important areas of common ground." should hillary clinton hit back at donald trump in donald trump style or stay as she has said she would, above the fray? the 20-year-old clinton scandals keep coming up at rallies for the presumptive rop nominee, but former secretary clinton has not yet answered trump's attacks directly. as we hear from our randi kaye, her supporters seems divided over how to fight moving forward. >> reporter: they came to hear bill clinton speak in patterson, new jersey. but long before the former president arrived, these voters were already fired up. >> why do you stoop down into the gutter with someone that wants to bring you there? >> reporter: the gutter is where many of these hillary clinton supporters believe donald trump is trying to drag her, using personal attacks about her husband's extramarital apares
da affairs dating back 20 years. >> she was an unbelievably nasty, mean enabler. and what she did to a lot of those women is disgraceful. >> reporter: instead of hitting trump back on his own personal transgressions, mrs. clinton is sticking to the issues. >> i have said repeatedly, i am not going to respond to the insults and the attacks coming from donald trump in this campaign. >> is hillary clinton playing tough enough? >> well, i think she's playing tough enough because i don't think that slander is the name of this game. i think that she should stay focused on the agenda at hand. >> i done believe in mud slinging. i don't think that helps anyone. >> reporter: but not responding to trump's personal attacks is risky. >> are you at all concerned that this could backfire on her? because look at what happened to the other 16 republican candidates who didn't take on donald trump. >> right. i believe, as time approaches closely, that she should maybe
take a couple of shots but nothing too extreme. because she doesn't want to be anything like donald trump. >> are you at all concerned that those kinds of things could sink in to the american public's view of her if she doesn't say something? >> i think the american people are intelligent enough to know what to look for to do their research, to do their homework and to not fall into the games of name saying. >> reporter: there's also the question of how hillary clinton should handle donald trump's harsh words for her husband. trump has called bill clinton the worst abuser of women in the history of politics. hillary clinton hasn't responded to those remarks either. a few here feel strongly that mrs. clinton needs to defend her husband and her family, that she's making a big mistake letting trump "bully her." >> you don't stand up to a bully, they keep going. for her to sit there and let him get away with it, it's like a cancer. if you don't treat it, it metastasizes. what's going to happen? you're going to die. >> reporter: how exactly should
she strike back? use trump's favorite weapon against him, says this supporter. >> you think she should go after him on social media? >> yes. he's using twitter. let her use twitter. >> i would hate to be in her shoes to have to take all that. >> reporter: and staying above the fray may be harder and harder the closer we get to election day. randi kaye, cnn, patterson, new jersey. as the clinton campaign prepares to take on donald trump in the general election, she still has an opponent in the primary race and bernie sanders is not backing down. he's hoping for a contested convention. now there is a group of sanders supporters out there looking beyond the convention and they're circulating a draft proposal. it calls for sanders to concede the race, possibly endorse clinton, then take on trump himself. okay. a democratic strategist and bernie sanders supporter is with us. i want to ask you about this draft that says sanders would be a powerful surrogate for clinton. in what arena do you see that happening? >> so this draft is -- i don't
know where this mysterious draft came from. there are no authors. they barely published where it came from. a lot of the language sounds very similar to some of the clinton language. so i think that everybody on team sanders right now is very passionate about moving forward. he's won 17 of the last 18 races. he has 45% of the pledged delegates. and most likely will win the majority of the next couple of states, including california where they are in a statistical tie. >> california has very sizable delegates at stake. but just to be clear, are you asserting that this draft is coming from the clinton camp and not -- >> yeah. or some sort of independent expenditure. they have a lot of different operations, including correct the record which is a david brock operation. some of the sanders supporters read it very similar to the language of a lot of the correct the record language, using language like "breaking
barriers," "attacking fascism and donald trump." it is not necessarily something that the sanders campaign endorses. reporters report on a lot of things if they're tipped off, obviously. >> i want to get to some of sanders' language here, something that was at a fund-raising e-mail that's using some -- some incendiary language to some degree. it says the sanders campaign revealed their thinking, obviously saying hitting clinton hard, saying that she's very close to trump in the polls. here it is. we're going to have a contested convention where the democratic party has to decide if they want the candidate with the momentum who is best positioned to beat trump, or if they're willing to roll the dice and court disaster simply to protect the status quo for the political and financial establishment of this country. i read that and i think a lot of people wonder, who is courting disaster aimed at? is the disaster donald trump? or is it hillary clinton? >> well, the disaster is shown in the polls.
bernie sanders is the only person right now who beats donald trump in swing states. nationally. he's the only candidate who has the most likely chances of beating donald trump electorally. he is the only candidate who can win that very important working class white -- unfortunately, just white male vote which is what it is going to come down to this year. he is the only candidate that cannot only get the base of democratic voters but view independents and young people and has the momentum. what he's basically saying is, if we want to win in november, which is essentially what the democratic party's mission statement is, is to win and to find the candidate takes most electable, then bernie sanders is that choice. >> okay. when you talk about winning, that requires some money. and also notable in this fund-raising e-mail that was sent out, he is making people to make $3 contributions to continue his run for wins in oregon and kentucky on tuesday. how financially sound is sanders' fight at this point? >> campaigns are expensive. we've all noticed over the past five or six months he's been
hitting record numbers. last month wasn't as strong as previous months but it was still very strong, one of the strongest out of all presidential contenders. sew continues to raise money and he is doing it in a nontraditional way, he's crowd sourcing it, he's getting it from individuals. he's basically breaking, hacking the system of presidential campaigns right now. presidential campaigns usually, either you have to be somewhat of a self-funder, or you have to raise money from very unlikely and unfriendly to the democratic process type types, whether it is having super pacs that raise money from dark shadow -- dark money groups and corporations or accept money from lobbyists, as hillary clinton is, and even the democratic party is right now. or he decided to go the honest path. he's doing it well and he's the most electable candidate. >> he did go an opposite way, i suppose, in terms -- if we talk about conventional elections. and it does seem to be working for him, no doubt about it. we appreciate you being here. thank you. >> sure. i want you to see the video
here of this young man. he was featured in a recent cnn documentary series. he gave hope to a lot of people. but he was found shot to death before he could escape the violence of chicago. we'll examine what tragically cut this young man's life short and hear from his mentor and former principal. also, an olympic doping scandal getting a lot of attention this morning involving russian athletes and reports of widespread cover-ups. why do so many businesses rely on the us postal service? because when they ship with us, their business becomes our business. that's why we make more e-commerce deliveries to homes than anyone else in the country. here, there, everywhere. united states postal service priority: you why do people have eyebrows?i. why do people put milk on cereal?

agency. >> emanuel makes this announcement in an op-ed for "the chicago sun times." in this he says that the city will replace the independent police review authority with a new civilian investigative agency that has more independence and more resources. but this essay offered few specifics about the agency. this is a bold move, because it comes as the mayor tries to navigate the controversy that erupted late last year when the city released this video of a white police officer shooting an unarmed black teen. the mayor's announcement comes as the city's violent crime spikes as well. most recent victim is a man who has been featured right here on cnn. >> his name was lee mccullum. he was featured in the series "chicagoland" that aired in 2014. the show documented his struggle to overcome homelessness and gang violence and eventually go on to college. but that dream ended suddenly when he was shot and killed early thursday morning in chicago's south side. cnn's ryan young has more on the
former prom king and honor student. >> 2013 prom king, y'all give it up for mr. lee mccullum! >> reporter: for once he was a king, known to viewers of the 2014 cnn documentary "chicagoland," lee mccullum gave a rare glimpse into his struggle for survival and escape from his gang riddled neighborhood. but mccullum's story ended tragically thursday morning after he was gunned down in the streets of chicago's south side. >> i don't have a plan. >> what do you think about maybe in january, what do you think about going away to college or to trade school? >> i wouldn't mind going away. >> gi >> give me your word and we'll meet up next week. you know me, i keep it 100% real. i don't want to be going to your funeral. >> reporter: words that have new meaning for his former principal. >> that was so hard when they played that clip back. i just -- i forgot i had said that to him because i was
worried about him at the time. there was some things going on in his life that weren't on the up and up. >> i ain't had no hopes and no dreams of going to college. >> reporter: 22-year-old lee mccullum, a former gang member, turned honor roll student and prom king never made it out of the tough south side. despite getting accepted to college, he never enrolled, and thursday morning, lee was murdered, shot in the head and left to die in the streets. >> i remember his as a freshman he used to get on my last nerve that he had. he was in a lot of trouble and lot of issues. but we really wrapped resoerss and support around him. he joined the basketball team. you could slowly see him begin to shift to really when he graduated, he was prom king. he had been on the honor roll. like he really changed his life. and it was positive and it was inspiring because we know that all of our kids have that potential. i think that he was up against incredible odds. >> reporter: this wasn't

the hour now. russia is denying new allegations that it ran a doping program for the 2014 winter olympics in sochi. >> andy shows has been looking flu this and has more in this morning's "bleacher report." >> if these allegations are true, this was a massive scheme to cheat at the sochi olympics by the host nation. the director of russia's antidoping laboratory and he said they would swap out dirty urine samples with clean ones. he said with the help of russian intelligence, the swaps would
happen in the middle of the night. he has since fled russia because he said he feared for his life. now we must note not a single russian athlete was caught doping at the games. russia did win the most medals. a spokesman for president putin told reporters that these allegations look absolutely groundless. two russian olympians who won medals at the games denied the allegations. the international olympic committee, meanwhile, is calling for an immediate inquiry and called the report by the "times" "very worrying." guys, this whole thing reads like it is something out of a movie. for example, he said to speed up the absorption to show up in the detention window, he dissolved the drugs in whiskey for the men, martinis for the women. thiss how they got the drug into their system. he seems credible but it is his word against -- >> is there any evidence?
>> two of his colleagues have recently died in russia and their deaths were considered suspicious. >> that is suspicious on its face. of all the questions that surround this story, whiskey for the men and martinis for the women just jumped out in my head -- why was that choice made? >> don't know! >> maybe that's a preference. >> ladies could drink me under the table. drink that whiskey straight. >> i'm not one of them. >> no, no, and i don't drink -- anymore. >> i was going to say. let's be honest here. andy sholes, thank you so much. we appreciate it. okay, so there has been this conversation out there, amongst some celebrities, that they would move to canada if donald trump becomes president. so if you are thinking the same thing, guess what? there is a new app for that. a dating site wants to help you find your perfect canadian match.

jeanne moos has this one for us. >> reporter: you may not think of donald trump as a matchmaker, but he could inspire cross-border romance between americans and canadians if maple match ever gets off the ground with its catchy slogan -- >> make dating great again. >> reporter: the website's mission -- maple match makes it easy for americans to find the ideal canadian partner to save them from the unfathomable horror of a trump presidency. austin, texas resident and hillary supporter, joe goldman, dreamed up maple match. >> i've always liked maple syrup. i have about 12 liters of machle syrup at home. i am a real fan of the flavor. >> reporter: he says maple match started as a fun experiment, but within days 20,000 americans had signed the wait list, and 5,000 canadians. every day the number grows. sure, people have been joking about moving. >> will donald trump be our next president? >> no!

since yesterday afternoon. we'll keep you up to date. hillary clinton's attack ad going after donald trump. a new ad over his
tax returns. watch part of it. >> he will not follow the example of every single democratic and republican presidential nominee since 1976. >> mitt romney posting it is disqualifying for a modern day presidential nominee to refuse to release tax returns to the voters. >> this of course comes close on the heels of trump's denials of allegations that he posed as his own publicist years ago. after trump's visit to washington, obviously is when this thing surfaced. just as republican leaders seem to be coming around to the idea that, you know what? trump may be their guy. want to bring in cnn producer kristin holmes right now. this has only been out, this ad, couple of hours at this point. what are you hearing about it?
>> well, this is exactly what some gop sources have told me. this is what they were worried about. this is what members of the party were worried about when donald trump became the presumptive nominee, specifically the kind of baggage that a non-traditional candidate like donald trump can have. this was a
week where, as you mentioned, donald trump really could be touting his efforts to try to bring the party together. he came down to washington. he met with republican leaders and he even released a statement with speaker ryan saying they wanted to bring the party together. instead he is answering questions on his refusal to release his taxes. he is answering questions on, as you mentioned, a tape in which it seems to show that he -- sorry, not show, but sounds like he was impersonating a spokesperson for himself named john miller so that he could talk to reporters about his love life and his business dealings. now trump has denied those allegations, as well as a former butler of trump's coming out and
arguing that president obama should be taken out and shot like an enemy. political analysts say that this could hurt trump in the general election not just with voters but with donors, something he didn't have to worry about in the primaries. >> kristin holmes, thank you. donald trump is trying to unify the party, bring the gop establishment into his fold. rally around and behind him. now of course this bizarre tape we just told you about could create problems for him. >> i can tell you this. >> i can tell you this. >> you understand that. >> you understand that. >> he's probably doing as well as anybody. >> i know politics as well as anybody. >> i hold up the bible as well as anybody. >> so lot of people looking at this wondering could it be that donald trump's worst enemy may just be donald trump of years past? cnn's senior investigative correspondent drew griffin takes a closer look here for us. >> reporter: if this is not donald trump on these tapes,
then an audio expert we talk to said someone has done a master full job of sounding almost exactly like donald trump. the fact is, the mysterious pr man in donald trump's past may not have been a real secret at all. the real amazing story of donald trump's old spokesman, as "the washington post" headline writes, may be that it's been such an open secret for so long, it's hard to believe that anyone is still questioning it. >> what is your name again? >> john miller. >> does he work with -- >> yes, that's correct. >> reporter: it was back in the 1980s. and when the flashy new york real estate mogul needed to get a bit of news out, the newspaper reports it was common knowledge among new york reporters that trump just assumed a different name and handled the media calls himself. like this call from reporter sue carswell at "people" magazine concerning trump's break-up with girlfriend marla maples. >> what kind of comment is
coming from your agency or from donald? >> he really decided that he wasn't -- you know, he didn't want to make -- he didn't want to make a commitment. he really thought it was too soon. he's coming out of a marriage that he's starting to do tremendously well financially. >> reporter: if that "john miller" sounds like trump, it is because audio forensic expert tom owen says, in his opinion, it is. >> i can conclude with a fair degree of scientific certainty that it is donald trump's voice. >> reporter: this afternoon, owen compared the john miller on that phone call with "people" magazine to the real donald trump interviewed on cnn's "larry king live" in the 1990s. >> i don't talk about relationships. i don't talk about the personal aspects of it. >> reporter: due to the quality of the old recordings, he couldn't use his biometric analysis that he says would be absolutely certain, but based on pitch, tone, cadence and his
expertise, john miller and donald trump are one and the same. >> i'm confident that it is donald trump based on my analysis of the critical listening, listening to the two recordings, and drawing a conclusion based on various factors, pitch, mannerisms, syllable coupling. >> reporter: trump even tacitly admitted under oath to using one of his false pr names in a 1990 court testimony when he said, "i believe on occasion i used that name. trump was confronted with the taped phone call and "the washington post" story on friday's "today" show. >> no, i don't think it -- i don't know anything about it. you're telling me about it for the first time and it doesn't sound like my voice at all. i have many, many people that are trying to immate my voice and you can imagine that. and this sounds like one of the scams, one of the many scams. doesn't sound like me. >> reporter: according to one donald trump biographer, trump may have learned this "trick"
from his father, fred trump, who was also known in the new york real estate media as a "mr. green." >> drew griffin, thank you so much. donald trump has not done too well in recent polls when it comes to women voters but one woman could be the presumptive nominee's secret weapon going into the general election. >> with him, what you see is what you get. even if you don't like his viewpoint on a certain topic. >> ivanka trump is a savvy, powerful business woman and she's helping her father win over female voters. we're going to talk more about this coming up later this hour. want to tell you in you this morning, los angeles police are investigating an officer-involved shooting. authorities say that an officer was injured last night around 8:30 pacific time. the suspect in the situation is dead, the officer is in stable condition but police have not said how the officer was injured. we understand he was not shot.
they also have not revealed what led up to that shooting. an open water search in the gulf of mexico for a missing cruise ship passenger goes on this morning. the 33-year-old woman is believed to have fallen overboard about 200 miles south of galveston, texas. the carnival cruise ship left galveston thursday for a four-day trip to mexico. in an extraordinary move, drug giant pfizer is making it more difficult to carry out lethal injections. the second-largest pharmaceutical company in the world is blocking its drugs from being used in executions. they say that it wants its drugs used to enhance and save lives instead of being used for capital punishment. lethal injection is the primary means of execution in all 31 death penalty states. look at this. it is amazing video from costa costa rica. a volcano erupted. it began erupting thursday,

new this morning -- could isis be in a state of emergency? the pentagon says they have seen new evidence that the terror group is scrambling fighters inside itself declared capital of raqqa, syria, possibly preparing for a siege. >> this happening as u.s.-backed forces starting to surround the strong hold cutting off supplies in recent months. our pentagon correspondent barbara starr has more. >> reporter: u.s. military officials have been closely monitoring so many and other reports that isis has declared a state of emergency in raqqa, itself declared capital inside syria. that's a city that isis holds very dear. they've been in control of it for some time. so what does this state of emergency really mean? state officials say they have some evidence showing isis fighters are moving around in the city, some of them trying to leave the city, that they're putting up covers, shades,
trying to cover sidewalks, areas where they may be, all to try and stay hidden from potential air strikes or ground action. isis may in fact be getting nervous in raqqa. they have seen militia movements move closer and closer. some of the areas surrounding raqqa now not necessarily under isis control. all of this making the group maybe for the first time very nervous about being able to hold on to the city that they consider their capital. barbara starr, cnn, the pentagon. somebody who's been watching this closely, cnn military analyst, retired lieutenant general mark hurling. when the u.s. says isis is declaring a state of emergency inside this capital, what does that mean? >> it means that the intelligence officials in central command and in the state that's fighting both isis in iraq and syria are getting
something called atmospherics. that's all sorts of intelligence chatter. it is not only things from the enemy, the isis forces in these two major towns, but it is also from people fighting them, twitter feeds, facebook, about a little bit of bravado from the syrian democratic forces, the syrian coalition, the peshmerga, all of the forces that were choking these towns, both raqqa and mosul, to prepare for an eventual attack in the city. but the attack is still a long way off. they are attempting to literally secure the areas around so there is freedom of maneuver against isis forces once they get there. >> so how would a breakdown in raqqa for isis affect some of these other attacks that we've seen in other countries? >> yeah. this is really important, because what you're seeing with not only the bravado from the forces that are fighting isis, but you're seeing atmospherics from isis itself saying, hey, we're moving forces around which allows for more targeting.
they're covering areas with covers, marketplaces, the places that allow them to move between it places with overhead covers so they don't get bombed. but i think any kind of movement from a former commander's perspective, any kind of movement of the enemy in a desert environment allows for more aerial bombardment and more understanding of what they're doing. but once you really hold them in these two major cities -- raqqa an mosul -- it influences their ability to affect operations in other cities. now some of that influence may be increased attacks in places like europe or even in libya and other areas where isis is. but it also indicates that they are undergoing quite a bit of problems from the attacks and the financial network being attacked and the lack of flow of fighters. >> that's part of what i wanted to know. we're coming to summer, a lot of people are looking at trips to europe and wondering are they safer, are they not safer based upon what's been happening there. >> i don't think you're going to
see any significant upticks in europe because i think the recent attacks in paris and brussels has caused an increased intelligence sharing. now that doesn't mean there's not going to be any attacks or any kind of attempts at attacks. it just means that the intelligence and security forces in europe are more prone to be watching very closely. >> the u.s. involvement in the war on isis was predicated on the iraqi government kind of getting its act together, we should point out. were you surprised when you heard that there were bombs and things going off in baghdad? because that's what everybody was watching for, whether isis would be able to infiltrate baghdad and what does that tell you about their strength. >> yeah. it's not only in baghdad, but it's also in ramadi. there were several suicide bombs in both those places. but again, when i was in iraq, you could never judge the status of security by the number of car bombs that were being set off because there is always goi to be some. the more important thing is the
abadi government in baghdad is still under a lot of pressure. if he can hold that government together, continue with his anti-corruption campaigns, start pleasing the people, all of those are important things to be watching. . car bombs in sadr city and in eastern parts of baghdad, what's going on in ramadi as isis attempts to continue their attacks even though they're being pushed back and put on the defensive, those are all things to watch, all of those atmospherics give indicators of what's happening there. >> all right. lieutenant general mark hertling, thank you for being with us. if you're headed to the airport where prepa airport, prepare for very long lines. that is miserable to stand there for hours. a lot of people are fed up. rachel crane is live at laguardia. >> reporter: yeah, certainly people are fed up. the tsa getting a lot of criticism this week for lines

>> he will not follow the example of every single democratic and republican presidential nominee since 1976. >> mitt romney posting, it is disqualifying for a modern day presidential nominee to refuse to release tax returns to the voters. >> hillary clinton released several years of her tax returns early in the campaign. that's in addition to her returns released for the 2008 campaign. >> because of that, she's already had to face questions over her financial success. >> reporter: on the campaign trail, hillary clinton highlights her humble beginnings. >> i didn't make much money but i could afford to do it because i was paying back a low percentage on interest. >> reporter: but she avoids drawing attention to the vast wealth she and her husband have accumulated since entering the public eye. >> millions. >> yes. yes. indeed. >> reporter: millions, indeed, the clintons earned nearly $141
million over an eight-year span from 2007 to 2014, according to tax returns released
by the campaign. they own two posh properties, a five-bedroom four billion bathroom home in chappaqua, new york and a four-bedroom house in a ritzy d.c. neighborhood that came with a price tag of $2.8 million. the clintons' financial comfort affords them luxurious vacations from marsha's vineyard to the caribbean. last summer the couple rented out a home in the hamptons. bill for one week -- $50,000. clinton's comments about her economic status has tripped her up before. >> we came out of the white house in debt. we had no money when we got there and we struggled to piece together the resources for mortgages for houses for chelsea's education. you know, it was not easy. >> reporter: that dead-broke
remark prompting a quick clean-up. >> i regret it. it was inartful. it was accurate. >> reporter: the clintons did have debt when they left the white house estimated between $2 million and $10 million. >> it is factually true we were several million dollars in debt. >> reporter: but coming off eight years in the white house, the couple also stood ready to cash in on their political fame. hillary clinton's books raked in multi-million dollar deals, last two getting at least $8 million a piece. even more lucrative for the clintons, the speaking circuit. according to cnn's analysis of the family's financial records, the clintons earned more than $153 million from paid speeches over a 14-year period with the average speech bringing in more than $210,000 a pop. clinton's democratic rival bernie sanders has seized on her speeches to wall street in particular. >> now what i have said is if you're going to get paid $225,000 for a speech, must be a
pretty good speech. >> reporter: clinton though says she does not regret taking the fees for those speeches. >> look, i made speeches to lots of groups. i told them what i thought. i answered questions. >> but did you have to be paid $675,000? >> well, i don't know. that's what they offered. >> reporter: cnn, washington. >> digging deeper on this. former hillary clinton presidential commentator is joining us now. and also a democratic strategist and bernie sanders supporter. ladies, thank you both for being with us. i want to get back to this ad. it's only been out for about two and a half hours this morning. she is really starting to hit trump over not releasing his taxes. is that a dangerous game to some degree when she's being asked to release her paid speeches and that has not been done? >> yeah, i think it's a little
bit dangerous. let's not forget she released the ad at:00 ona saturday morning and maybe it is something that she had to do to please her support and to raise money. but it is dangerous territory. if a strategist is sitting there saying he is going to respond, he'll probably respond over the weekend and talk about the drip transcripts to get that conversation topic out of the way. but the transcript situation is very serious. not just that she gets $225,000 per speech, she made $11 million in 2014. she and bill clinton made $150 million off of these paid speeches since early 2000. more importantly, the associated press -- they did a report about a month ago basically saying that 82 of the firm's corporations and trade associations that they've given speeches to have direct interests with the u.s. government. they have tried to lobby for government contracts. so this is a very tricky situation for hillary clinton. not to mention that she continued to give these speeches up until two weeks before she announced she was running for
president and now she's giving $500,000 to her own campaign from personal interests. >> what do you have to say, patty? give me your assessment of how effective you think the ad that was just released against donald trump could be. >> well, first of all, let me just say that i think that comparing the tax returns and the transcripts of the speeches is like comparing apples and oranges. every president since -- or every presidential candidate since 1976 has released their tax returns and the idea that donald trump won't release his really raises a lot of questions and the prominent question is what exactly is he hiding by not releasing these returns? and i think the ad was extremely effective. as to to the transcripts, i think hillary got it right. when other presidential candidates start releasing transcripts of their private speeches to private audiences, then she'll release hers. but i don't foresee that happening with donald trump since he won't even release the basic tax return. >> patty, how does she overcome
this though? on one hand you think, who am i to judge what somebody makes? you could hear it in the laughter of that when anderson cooper said, $600,000-some for a speech? she says that's what she offered. really, if you're honest with yourself, how many people would turn it down. at the same time, it does hurt her relatability to the general electorate. how does she balance this? >> well, look. certainly if someone offered me $225,000 to give a speech i would give it. but this is what former secretaries of state, former presidents of the united states do. they go on the speaking circuit and they talk about their experiences, their time, and in her case, she talked about everything from -- >> she did. >> -- killing -- >> but how does she balance it with people say you don't anything about my life and how i'm living. >> hillary clinton wasn't born a
millionaire like donald trump was. hillary clinton came from a middle class family in the suburbs of chicago. she worked as a student. she had student debt. she got loans to go to college, like i did, like many people have. so she's very relatable. she knows exactly what people are feeling. >> i think we're missing the real argument here. it is not just about the relate ability. that's obviously a campaign optic situation. the question is what do you get in return? this is a woman ha was secretary of state whose husband was giving $350,000 speeches while running the clinton global initiative and the clinton foundation. now we know 82 companies had interest in lobbying the government for contracts. it is a legal issue, not just about relate ability but about what the government defiance as corruption, what the law defines as corruption. anybody in their right mind who was secretary of state whose husband is a former president who plans to run for president should not be giving these speeches especially when her presidential committee was set up in january and she's giving
those speeches five months into her presidential campaign. >> i'm sorry, we've run out of time. i've got to go. i have to leave it there. patty and nomiki, thank you both. ivanka trump seems to be proving to be a secret weapon of sorts for donald despite everything that we've seen happening in the last 24 hours. she's quite a voice for him it seems. >> it is clear why. she is a successful business woman in her own right. poised, well spoken, connects well with women voters. >> she's an asset. somebody when she walked away said, oh, my god, she should be running for president.

donald trump and hillary clinton are likely to set for an epic face-off this fall in the general election thus far as we can tell, hillary clinton vying to be the first female president of the united states. the key question in that match-up is can donald trump pull up his support from women. if recent polling is any indication, he does have a long way to go. this cnn poll shows 73% of registered women voters have an unfavorable opinion of donald trump. despite this, many of his supporters say they aren't worried for one important reason -- his daughter, ivanka. she's a top executive at the trump organization and entrepreneur with a jewelry line, a clothing line, a lifestyle website that celebrates women who work. she's a mom. could ivanka trump be the secret weapon to win the female vote? cnn's jessica schneider has more. >> has anybody ever heard of
ivanka? people love ivanka. >> reporter: ivanka trump is the model of calm standing stoically by her father's side at rally after rally across the country, she is well versed in battling away criticism about his tough talk. >> with him what you see is what you get, even if you don't like his viewpoint on a certain topic. >> reporter: taking the stage at the forbes women's summit in new york city, she spoke about her own brand and her brash father. >> i think people respect the fact that he's bold enough to say what he's actually thinking. >> reporter: donald trump has made disparaging comments about women. including this one. >> you could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her -- wherever. >> reporter: but the 34-year-old mother of three fervently stands by her dad. >> i have witnessed these incredible female role models that he's employed in the highest executive positions at the trump organization my entire life. >> reporter: she's the executive vice president of acquisitions
and development at the trump organization and as her brothers tell erin burnett, she is a deal maker like her father. >> ivanka's very much like him in many ways in terms ef the meticulous nature of things. >> reporter: she also runs her own fashion company, the ivanka trump collection, and her website prominently features the hashtag womenwhowork. >> i don't think i've ever heard the expression working man. yet when it is applied to women there is a connotation and i believe that will change by the time -- i'm hopeful that will change by the time my daughter is an adult. >> reporter: she's been in the spotlight her entire life. >> today we are covering the washington monument in gold mirrored glass. >> reporter: and has even taken part in her own spoofs on "saturday night live," now with donald trump's presumptive nominee status, his oldest daughter's poise and polish is making some women take a second look. >> i saw someone who really loves her father. >> reporter: even so, the women we spoke to who listen to ivanka at the forbes summit were mixed on how she could shape the race.
>> oh, she helps it. there's no question. she's an asset. she is somebody when she walked away said, oh, my god, she should be running for president. >> reporter: she definitely got me thinking a little bit more. but at the end of the day, i think he's done and said too much. >> reporter: jessica schneider, cnn, new york. well, it is the large esst volcanic eruption in costa rica. he is 96 years old proving you are never too old to get your college degree. hey! this is lloyd. to prove to you that the better choice for him is aleve. he's agreed to give it up.

investigation into runway injustices. this is fascinating out. signs of early civilization, a major discovery in florida that has archaeologists really intrigued, possibly rewriting history. we've got that coming up for you. welcome to saturday, to your weekend. we're so grateful for your company. >> you've been pushing yourself every day to get to saturday. you made it. i'm victor black wahl, good to have you with us. >> we want to begin with this brand new ad from hillary clinton slamming donald trump for not releasing his tax returns. you do not hear her voice, you do not see her image. she is nowhere to be found. >> this is after bizarre revelations that he, donald trump, posed as his own publicist years ago. he met with house speaker paul ryan, that went well, a big push to get republican leaders in
washington to back him, that went well, but watch this. >> donald trump taking a hit from hillary clinton in a new video that asks, why won't he release his taxes? >> he will not follow the example of every single democratic and republican presidential nominee since 1976. >> reporter: but the billionaire is not budging. >> when the audit ends i'm going to present them. i hope it's before the election. >> reporter: sounding downright defiant. >> what is your tax rate. >> it's none of your business. i fight very hard to pay as little tax as possible. >> reporter: he's not required to release his taxes, but -- >> and then there's this voice from the past. >> we're going to start winning, winning, winning. >> reporter: what do you hear? trump dogged by questions about whether he had posed as
imaginary staffers to deal with reporters questions about his love life and his personal drama. listen to this "people "magazine interview about his breakup with marla maples. >> what kind of comment is coming from your agency? >> well, it's just that he really decided that he didn't want to make the commitment. he thought it was way too soon. he's coming out of a marriage that -- and he's starting to do tremendously well financially. >> reporter: trump has admitted to using a pseudonym in the past but he says the voice on that call is not his. >> no, i don't know anything about it. you're telling me about it for the first time and it doesn't sound like my voice at all. i have many, many people trying to imitate my voice and this sounds like one of the many scams. doesn't sound like me. >> reporter: but there is some evidence that the presumptive gop nominee is settling in as a
party leader. when his former long time butler argued on facebook that president obama quote should have been taken out by our military and shot as an enemy agent team trump acted fast to say we totally and completely disavow the horrible statements by him regarding the president. >> i think donald trump did the right thing by distancing himself from it. >> all right. let's bring in ashley bell, republican delegate and former commissioner for hall county, georgia and good to have both of you here. >> thank you. >> i want to start here with a
little more of the ad we had about taxes. >> maybe i'll do the tax returns when obama does his birth certificate. >> the state of hawaii released my official long form birth certificate. >> if i'd like to run for office i'll produce my tax returns. >> i am officially running for president of the united states.
>> getting any closer to releasing your tax returns? >> well, i'm thinking about it. >> i can't do it until the audit is finished. >> the audit is no excuse. the irs has made it very clear it's entirely your choice. >> so the ad is clear, the ad is accurate. i'm going to start with you. why isn't he releasing these taxes and should he? >> hillary clinton should know that transparency the better than anyone. >> when is he going to release his taxes and should he? >> he should. he really should. the standard should be equal on both sides. hillary should release hers, tax, transcripts all of that. we want to make
sure that you're going to maintain that transparency throughout the term in office. >> i'm impressed that he's released it prior to being elected. i think it's a general transparency issue and i also
think in general we're going to see something that he doesn't want us to see on his tax returns. there's the potential for investments, contributions to democrats which we know that he's done and i think there's definitely a reason why he wants to postpone that. >> he has pointed reporters to his financial statement, but i want to read something to you and get the two of you do discuss it. we can no longer claim to be the party of freedom when we nominate a fascist and we can't be the party of opportunity if we decide a racist can represent our values. donald trump a fash u.s. and a racist? >> absolutely. a donald trump i think is indisputably interested in serving his own interests. he has an agenda that is entirely his own. i'd say he's a by got and i
don't think we should limit his discrimination to gender because it extends to color as well. >> you know, i don't defend him. i look at it this way. donald trump has a record and i hope that he learns to be a better public servant. he's got a different criteria as a businessman but i like the fact that he met with our speaker of the house so he can understand. you've got to balance your ideas against the constitution. you can't go and say you're going to ban all muslims and not think about the constitutional issues there or how congress plays a role in that. we don't need a ceo of america. we need a president who understands his role. >> the recording of who he says is not him, this john miller person is coming out and these can be small things or grow into a larger narrative, but when i asked you about if you defend
him against being a fascist, or bigot? >> how do you explain hillary clinton taking money from him? he's funded some of her initiatives, so i doubt even hillary clinton is going to say that she knows donald trump to be that, because that's one of her supporters. >> this is something that has been discussed and has not been ruled out. the possibility of a third party conservative, someone to excite the base and help those down ballot races. do you believe that that is -- is there credible effort anywhere? >> there's a huge credible effort on two different fronts. there's still the possibility that we can elect a different republican in a contested convention and there's a ground swell of people who are still never trump that go from crass roots activists to very high profile right wing donors. >> you're going to support the
nominee. >> i always agreed, you support the nominee. >> but do you do so bre grudgingly? >> i'm working on it. >> okay. until next time. thank you both. >> and just about 50 minutes eguess who's going to be coming at you. smerconish, so good to see you and i'm interested in one of the guests that you have coming on because we've been talking about this person who taped the trump publicist interview and you're talking to her. >> sue carswell is going to be my guest in less than an hour and i'm very eager to hear this story from her perspective. she figured out that john miller was in fact donald trump and she wrote that in her story and then there was a followup story which confirms that donald trump himself apologized. so it begs the question, why this week did he deny it? and there's something else that interests me about this story and that is the tape. she did not put this tape in
play. so where did the tape come from? i'm going to ask her. there's an interesting theory that we're going to develop. >> i'm wondering -- i just want your take on this. what is the value, do you think, michael, of looking back at a candidate and what they did 25 or 30 years ago? i think a lot of us look at ourselves and say i'm glad i'm not who i was when i was in my 20s but why is it so relevant in these conversations? >> when i was 12 and 13 i used to call the local drugstore and ask if they had prince albert in a can. but i was 12 or 13. i was not a 44-year-old father of three who today wants to be president of the united states. if he had said yesterday, if he had said well, yeah, it was me and i was caught up in a nasty domestic situation and i was trying to play this thing out, we wouldn't be having this conversation. >> so the onus is the fact that he did not own up to it? >> i think so. if he had i think we wouldn't be
having this conversation, but is it possible that it's a misdirection? because we're also consumed with this, we're talking a little bit less about the tax returns, we're talking a little bit less about the butler. i mean, what a week it's been for donald trump. it started off with such promise and it ends with a lot of republicans scratching their heads and saying maybe i don't want to have a reproachment with him. >> and i'm wondering, what do you think paul ryan is thinking at this moment? as they seemed to make progress and we're seeing all this the last 24 hours. >> the critical question. it seemed midweek like ryan was inching closer to getting on the trump bandwagon and you have to believe he wakes up this saturday morning, pays attention to cnn, re-evaluates what's transpired and says, what do the next several months hold? i mean, every day is a different land mine and surprise with this guy. do i really want to attach my credibility to him? >> all right. michael smerconish, always
appreciate you. thank you for taking the time. >> likewise. >> and do not forget to catch smerconish immediately following this show in just about 50 minutes right here on cnn. there is of course this emotional battle over gender identity now entering public schools. some lawmakers and parents are downright angry over white house guidelines allowing transgender students to use any rest room they choose. and a new discovery. you want to stay with us for this. it could change the foundation of what we know about american history. and what tsa says they're doing to fix long security lines. some passengers are waiting two hours. some even longer. u! it's me? alright emma, i know it's not your favorite but it's time for your medicine, okay? you ready? one, two, three.

choose which rest room to use or face the consequences. >> this is from a joint letter. these new guidelines come to all public schools. the message is clear, fall in line or potentially lose federal funding, but some states are putting up a fight. and there's some strong moves coming from officials. >> certainly strong words and this is the most detail we've heard from the federal government since this issue began back in march. this turned into a national conversation and now with this letter that victor and christie were just talking about it is a national issue. we've seen many governors come out and tell their school districts not to follow the new rules. school districts and schools are seemingly caught in the middle. >> we will not yield to blackmail from the president of the united states. >> the federal government calls them guidelines, but several states including texas see them
more as a threat. >> this goes against the values of so many people. it has nothing to do with anyone being against a transgender child. >> at a press conference texas lieutenant governor says a line has been crossed by the federal government after the department of justice sent a letter on transgender bathroom use in public schools across the united states. >> but i'm telling all the superintendents in texas right now you have about three weeks left of the school year. do not enact this policy. >> in the letter attorney general writes there is no room in our schools for discrimination of any kind including discrimination against transgender students on the basis of their sex. under the guidelines public schools that receive federal money are obligated to treat students consistent with their gender identity even if their records indicate a different sex. access sex segregated status.
the action sets the stage for a legal battle that's been in the making since march. house bill 2 in north carolina began the recent controversy. the law requires transpeople to use the public rest room related to the gender on their birth certificate not how they identify. candice cox has been one of the most outspoken against the law. she's a transgender woman and has met with the north carolina governor. >> the fact that we are not talking about transgender people and who they are, but rather we don't want someone who looks like a man or looks like a woman that identifies as the opposite gender. it lets me know that we're still discriminating. >> reporter: north carolina and the feds have traded accusations and lawsuits. some states including arkansas and texas insist there's been government overreach. the feds say civil rights have
been violated. >> this is not just a north carolina issue. this is now a national issue. >> you hear there from governor mccrory in north carolina. late friday he issued a statement which read most americans believe that the government is searching for a solution to a problem that is yet to be defined. he wants the u.s. congress and federal courts to intervene. a lot of steadfast believes in this issue. you have one side thinking that you're making exceptions for a very small percentage. the united nations saying only 15 million transgender people in the world. you have transgender people saying you're looking at us for not who we are but what we look like. isis under siege? and issuing a state of emergency. cnn is live inside syria where the terror group is scrambling its fighters inside it's self-declared capital. and tsa a taking action.

new this morning a lot of people wondering, could isis be in a state of emergency? because the pentagon says they have seen new evidence the terror group is scrambling right now. inside its self-declared capital in syria, possibly preparing for a siege. >> this comes as u.s. backed forces have started to surround
the isis strong hold helping to cut off supply lines in recent months. we're in damascus and joined on the phone with more detailed. do we know if the decision to try to surround these cities and close off their supply lines directly led to what is being considered the state of emergency? >> caller: it's not clear, victor, but certainly the.s. have indications that that could very well be the case. this could also be the result generally of isis losing a lot of ground on the battlefield and also the fact that they seem to be very much afraid of the air power that the u.s. and its allies bring to the table. the latest that we're getting is that inside, what isis is doing it's covering certain key buildings they they have, trying to cover them and maybe shield them against air strikes or at least the drones that are flying overhead and also that they seem to be digging trenches in and around the area possibly getting
ready for a siege there. the general feeling that the u.s. has is that the isis fighters are feeling the effect of u.s. air power, that they're trying to prepare to get away from u.s. air strikes. also that they're feeling the encroachment from two sides, because on the one side mostly kurdish led people and then from the other hand you have the forces as well. but the feeling is that isis at this point is definitely feeling the heat. they're definitely already lost a lot of ground and that they seem to be preparing for some sort of attack and whether they call it a state of emergency is unclear, but it seems as though they certainly are preparing for something that would definitely look like a state of emergency as they continue to lose ground there in that part of syria, their self-declared capital. >> we'll continue to watch it. thanks so much. donald trump says his tax

>> what is your tax rate? >> it's none of your business. you'll see it when i release, but i fight very hard to pay as little tax as possible. >> all right. let's bring in cnn money correspondent. so i know that you've done -- there's an investigative report on this. you've been looking into this whole thing and there's some inconsistencies between the statement that he hopes the irs completes the audit before the election and then there was this letter that his lawyers sent out. what are you finding? >> i think it's important to remind viewers that donald trump's story on his taxes and why he will and when he will release them has changed throughout the months. at the end of last year, beginning of this year, he seemed to suggest that first he would release them when hillary clinton released her e-mails. then in january he said he -- everything was beautiful and he was working on, you know, releasing his taxes, and then we
get this audit excuse, which is an excuse because there's nothing legally that prevents him from releasing his tax returns, and then in march, his lawyer sent out this letter that says even his tax returns that were closed, the ones that are not under audit between 2002 and 2008 should not be released. it was a letter from his lawyers to the candidate saying we advise you not to release these because activities in these are essentially continuing into the ones that are being audited. so it seemed to suggest and i took the letter to several of my sources who said legalese wise, if you read between the lines this seems to suggest the candidate never wants to release any tax information and of course you guys have been talking about this all morning but this really breaks with the last 30 or 40 years of presidential candidates
releasing their tax information. so it's a real issue here, because not only is he -- not only is he presenting this audit excuse, but it's also a changing evolving story from, you know, i'm not going to release my taxes to, you know, i hope this audit wraps up by november. >> yeah. thank you so much for the update there and we should point out that this is also the topic for hillary clinton's latest ad that was just released a few hours ago and we'll be talking about that in a little bit as well. the summer travel season as you know is beginning to ramp up. you're probably making your plans to get away, but some airports are experiencing huge wait times to get through security. look at some of these lines. these are some folks in atlanta who had to stand in line for up to two hours yesterday. >> well, to deal with the problem, the tsa is stepping up the hiring and training of more
than 750 additional screeners, but travelers -- we should all still expect longer than usual wait times at security check points. let's go to our rachel crane. she is at la guardia airport in new york and i understand you just got some new information from the airlines. what have you learned? >> reporter: well, we heard from american airlines that just yesterday they actually held five flights in dallas waiting for 77 passengers who were held up because of these long wait times. and you know, here at la guardia right now the wait is nothing like the lines we've seen all across the country in cities like chicago and atlanta and phoenix, passengers waiting hours to get through security. now, the tsa is aware of the problem and as you pointed out, they're hiring more than 750 new agents. the problem is, those agents don't come on board until mid july, and you know, with summer right around the corner, fuel
prices dropping, ticket prices dropping, we can expect that this problem, it's probably going to get a lot worse before it gets any better and just the other day, the secretary of homeland security urged the american public to have appropriate expectations when they're heading to the airport this summer. >> all right. rachel crane for us there. thanks so much. take a look at this video. it is just amazing, isn't it? this is out of costa rica and what oyou're looking at is a volcano erupting. they have a thermal camera at the top of the volcano there. it began erupting and the debris temporarily closed the international airport while crews cleared the runways. experts say this is the biggest eruption in costa rica in several years. >> we're learning more about a major scovery, a scientific discovery in florida.

oldest known sight of human life. we're joined now by florida state university assistant profess professor. good morning to you. >> good morning to you guys. >> so put into just layman's waking up saturday morning, terms what this means the discovery of these tools. >> so these bones and artifacts show that people were in florida 1,500 years earlier than a lot of people accept the americas were colonized and a lot of us were taught that the americas were colonized by some folks coming through an ice free corridor into north and south america around 13,500 years ago. that ice recorder wasn't open until 13,000 years ago. this site is 500 years older than that and in florida which
is in any stretch of the americas is kitty corner from alaska and so it means we have to re-examine how and when the americas were colonized. >> so this is on its face fascinating, but when i look at the pictures and the images here, it's underwater. >> yes. >> some underwater sink hole? is that what we're looking at here? >> yes, it's a sink hole in the bottom of the river. the people weren't, however, scuba diving 13 and a half thousand years ago. this was a site that would have been an isolated pond about 130 miles from the coast at the time people were here, because sea levels were almost 300 feet lower then and florida was nearly twice as big. >> so we're just learning of this this morning. as a nonarchaeologist, i'm excited about this, but tell me, having discovered this, what you felt, what went through your
mind when you realized the implications of this discovery. >> oh, it was so exciting. to be fair, we were building on research done by a number of archaeologists in the 80s and 90s who had done some excavations at the sink hole. they found a tusk with human made, they said cut marks but it wasn't widely accepted by the community so we were actually there to re-evaluate their claims and so finding the stone knife that we discovered really showed that they had been correct. the stone knife, there's absolutely no way that could be made by nature where as some people had proposed that the marks on the cuts could have been caused by elephants and by elephants i made mastadons stomping around on them. and it wasn't that we lucked into this layer, we were really building on some previous research, but that being said, i
don't think any of us slept the night that we found it. everybody was very excited and it's been so rewarding to be able to work in that sink and find these things. >> i imagine you all were very excited. assistant professor at florida state university. let me get that right. professor, thanks so much for sharing the information, the discovery and the excitement with us this morning. >> thanks for having me. >> sure. so you know, it may look like a glamorous way to make a living. some models say they are getting ripped off. >> i would never let my son or daughter become a model. >> soaring commissions, with held pay, models say they are sick of getting ripped off by the industry. we'll have more in a moment.

models are typically seen in front of the camera, on stage, they're in the spotlight, but they're rarely heard. cnn money goes behind the camera to get their story now. >> and their story means allegations of exorbitant fees, virtually no labor protections but agencies saying investing in fresh faces is risky and they are hired by the models, not the other way around. >> it's like this assembly line of young skinny white mostly
blond girls. younger versions of me and they use them up and they spit them out. >> there's so many cases of labor abuse. it's going to take a civil rights movement. >> these are businesses. they're not set up for the purpose of trying to allure attractive men or women for some type of ulterior motive. >> it's a hidden part of the industry. you're so in the camera, but at the same time, the reality of what's behind the camera is not known. >> we were their friends, we were their protectors, and many of the modelling agents would let them down. >> i was attracted to the industry at first because i saw it as a place where there were a lot of creative, talented, smart women. and it's i think a business that should empower women, not exploit them.
>> i don't think they're being exploit exploited. i think they're coming to new york to enhance their careers. >> the business model of a modelling agency is to take the risk on these young models, you invest in them and if those girls start to work, they start to make money. let's just say it's $5,000 for an 8-hour day. off the top of that $5,000, the model pays the agency 20%. so that's $1,000. >> often models will be charged a lot of fees in addition to the commission, so that might be for the model apartment, for comp cards, for messenger services. >> it might seem like oh it's a dollar here, it's a dollar there, but when you add it up it's thousands of dollars. >> these are a lot of the different financial statements. i can't understand what more than half of these items are. looks like i got my hair done for $75. i don't know what 68 degrees was
and then of course they take their commission. there's years you can make $5,000 and other years where you could make $200,000. >> these are incidentals and if you add all these costs up they'll be minuscule. why would any agency spend money trying to cultivate somebody's career and at the same time try to exploit them and make money off extravagant expenses? >> i don't think that it would be the end of the business to expect agencies to be financially transparent. we're not asking for very much. >> i would never let my son or daughter become a model. >> it's a business which is self-regulated, but for the most part, is very clean. >> if you're constantly finding a new, like, 22-year-old who just sees like, bright lights and isn't going to ask questions, it's very easy to perpetuate this and then they go away. they go back to oklahoma, and they ship the next girl in.
>> so not just stolen pay and extra fees they're talking about, but even sexual harassment and months without a paycheck. we are talking to one of the men you saw there as well as a model, and our guests next say that this is part of the modelling industry. there's often no one to turn to, though, for help and that could be one of the biggest problems. it's my decision to make beauty last. fix. roc® retinal started visibly reducing my fine lines and wrinkles

>> the vast majority of professional models are poorly paid even on high profile photo shoots and they often endure abuse and harassment on the job with few legal protections. that has led to the biggest class action lawsuit. thank you so much for being with us. i want to ask you about this class action lawsuit against modelling agencies. what do young women in this industry need to prove to make some headway with that lawsuit? >> frankly, they'd have to prove that their employees which is ridiculous because to be an employee you have to know who you're going to work for, how much you're going to be paid, how long you're going to work and in the model industry, the models do not work for the agencies. they work for third parties, whether it's chanel, prada,
revlon, so that's number one. if they're not employees i don't think the case would stand. number two, all the damages they're alleging, each is different for every agency. there's different contracts, different rates and different commissions that are paid. >> you have said this is a self-regulated industry. do you think that needs to change? are you seeing abuses of some of your models that you're representing? >> well, listen, quite frankly, in any industry there's certain abuses and our firm has gone after agencies where there were abuses. >> so it does exist? >> well, in every industry something exists, but i think i have to clarify something, that most of the people you've interviewed were with other than major known agencies. i think what a model should do to protect himself or herself is use the media. go to google. find out what agency you may be represented by, and whether
they've had problems and i think you'll find the major agencies don't have the kind of problems which you've been promoting on your piece. i think it's been very one-sided for the models, not to say they don't need protection and not saying you haven't done a phenomenal job, but i think it's misdirected at those agencies that are not really agencies. >> okay. but let me ask you a question, because a lot of people say look, in any industry, modelling or anything else, you have to pay your dues. are some of these smaller agencies that may be part of these lawsuits even though now that it says some of these lawsuits are coming to some of the bigger agencies, isn't that seen as paying your dues? you tart with an agency who might be smaller, more of a boutique agency in order to make it to the bigger, maybe bigger and better i should say agencies that have been around longer? >> listen, nobody can argue with that logic. everybody has a dream. everybody should have an
opportunity. so the answer is, whomever you're working with should treat you with respect, dignity, make sure you get paid on time, make sure you have good living conditions if you need a place to stay. that goes without saying. >> all right. robert hatman, thank you for taking the time to be with us. >> my pleasure. thank you. and do stay close. we'll be back in just a couple of minutes. . >> from scams that prey on young men and women, cnn's money. you can check out the full series, runway injustice. it's a cnn money special investigation series and it is on our website. big congratulations to all

>> make dating great again. >> reporter: the website's slogan, it makes it easy for americans to find the ideal canadian partner to save them from the horror of a trump presidency. >> i've always liked maple syrup. i have about 12 liters at home. i'm a real fan of the flavor. >> reporter: it started as a fun experiment but within days, 20,000 americans had signed the wait list and 5,000 canadians. every day the number grows. sure, people have been joking about moving. >> will donald trump be our next president? oh, if that [ bleep ] becomes president i'm moving my black [ bleep ] to south africa. >> reporter: miley cyrus tweeted i'm going to vom, move out of
