4:02 am
end this way. >> more on jacob's abduction and how his family was able to save countless other children. >> my favorite color is blue. >> jacob was just 11 years old. october 22nd, 1989, would be the night that would forever change a family, a city, an entire state. >> it looks sort of like nylon things as a mask. >> jacob was abducted while riding his bike his brother and a friend. >> he grabbed jacob and told me to run as fast as i could into the woods or else he'd shoot. >> there's no explanation. i don't feel the anger yet. i just want him home. >> i'm very optimistic. my son is pretty intelligent. if there's anyway that he can help pull himself through this, he's going to do so. >> searches were conducted through the air and on foot. the slogan jacob's hope got
4:03 am
national attention. >> can you hear our prayers? we love you. >> but weeks and then months went by with no sign of jacob. his family, however, has never given up hope. in 1990 they established the jacob wetterling foundation, a national database that helps families of missing children. >> i'm fighting for the world that jacob knew and believed in. >> in 2010 investigators used backhoes and searched the farm property of the wetterling's neighbor. nothing was found. >> never had nothing to do with the jacob wetterling kid. never knew him. >> jacob's case garnered world
4:04 am
wide attention, was recently featured on the hunt with john walsh. coming up we're going to have an in-depth look at that. let's turn to politics now. mike pence says that he will release his tax returns, something that donald trump still has not done. he did say, though, that donald trump will release his taxes at the end of an audit. but there's no legal reason for him not to do so now. watch. >> you guys have higher ground on this issue, on this whole idea of transparency and accountability if you guys were as transparent, releasing the tax returns, him releasing his tax returns. whatever you want to say about the clintons, we know this because the information has either been dragged out of them or it's been disclosed. we don't have your tax returns yet. >> donald trump and i are both
4:05 am
going to release our tax returns. i'll release mine in the next week. donald trump will be releasing his tax returns at the completion of an audit. >> but that won't be before the election. >> we'll see. >> i want to start with you, because you're a senior advisor. you know the strategy here. the trump doesn't gain anything from talking returns because donald trump hasn't released his. why didn't governor pence release his tax returns when tim kaine did? instead he says he will. >> it's up to governor pence when to release his tax returns. actually on this network an
4:06 am
attorney from steptoe & johnson said he would never advise his clients who are under audit to release their tax returns. >> that's not a legal reason. >> there are attorneys who are specifically saying if their client was under audit, they would not release tax returns. tax returns actually don't provide any information that's pert noeinent to the voters. >> how could both of those things be true, that there's nothing in these tax returns that is valuable. but there's so much that this attorney is trying to protect that he adamantly discouraged trump from releasing them? >> if you look at anybody under audit, audit means the irs is doing a review of someone's taxes.
4:07 am
attorneys do not give advice to not release your tax returns, to not make those public and put that information out there. that's the case. donald trump has said it over and over again for months now. yet the media continues to pound the story. must be a slow news day. >> okay. i think boris makes a point here. >> the issue here is really transparency and making sure that this gentleman who's running for president will basically abide by the standard that's been put in place for 40 years. everyone who has run for president in the last 40 to 50 years have released their tax returns. one of the things that donald trump can do while his 2009 and beyond tax returns are being audited, he can release his 2008, 2007, 2006 tax returns. but he refuses to do so.
4:08 am
every day that goes by that he refused to show the american people his tax returns, it totally gets into his credibility to talk about tra transparen transparency. >> that's pretty rich for you to talk about transpar paparency clinton supporter. >> my point is that you guys with this fbi investigation with the release of the documents and with her questioning you have pounded hillary clinton and her campaign over the answers. my point is that your argument is not relevant because you guys refuse to release the tax returns. you cannot continue to criticize the clintons. >> you cannot equate not releasing your tax returns voluntarily when under audit and lying to congress, to the fbi and the american people as hillary clinton has done. >> let's go on the record here.
4:09 am
james comey said she didn't lie to the fbi. the facts have to be injected here. when you say she lied to the fbi, james comey the director of the fbi said she didn't. >> if you look at the notes, it's clear that hshe did. she told congress she'd turn over all her e-mails. let me finish now. >> this conversation is about taxes. this conversation is about taxes. boris, pause please. let me ask you this. there is in new monmouth poll out now that shows 52% of voters believe there's something in those returns that he doesn't want the public to know. 52% believe he's concealing
4:10 am
something and it's not an audit. let's go to the irs website where there is an audit notify dha that is sent out. it says should your account be selected for audit you'll be notified in two ways, by mail or by phone. in the case of a phone call, the irs will still send a letter. can donald trump release the letter telling him there is an audit? >> you're calling donald trump a liar? >> you asked me if i called you a liar. i'm giving you the numbers. 52% don't belief theve there's audit. >> hillary clinton has spent her career -- >> listen, the question is about
4:11 am
the taxes. will he release the letter confirmed there is an audit. >> he has already spoken about this, as have his attorneys. >> i think you were notified on what the topic was. >> actually, i was not. >> okay. well, we'll make sure you are in the future. ...clear for take off. see ya! when you're living with diabetes. steady is exciting. oh this is living baby! only glucerna has carbsteady, to help minimize blood sugar spikes. and try new glucerna hunger smart to help you feel full. i have to tell you something. dad, one second i was driving and then the next... they just didn't stop and then... i'm really sorry. i wrecked the subaru. i wrecked it. you're ok. that's all that matters.

4:14 am
we've enclosed a picture of our son so that you can get a sense there are real people out here trusting you with their hard-earned money. ♪ at fidelity, we don't just manage money, we manage people's money. ♪ boris epstein back with us. yesterday donald trump was at great faith ministries. there seems to be a discrepancy between what he told the congregation and what he told people at his rallies. let's watch. >> i'm not saying anything other than pathological is a very serious disease. and he said he's pathological.
4:15 am
you don't cure these people. you don't cure a child molester. there's no cure for it. pathological, there's no cure for that. by the way, and again said incorrectly -- and i'm not saying this as a knock. this is one of the finest men. mexico will pay for the wall. what do you have to lose? you're living in poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs. we'll get rid of the crime. our nation is too divided. we talk past each other, not to each other and those who seek office do not do enough to step into the community and learn what is going on. they don't know. they have no clue. >> there's a pattern here that we saw yesterday. why didn't donald trump tell pena nieto that they're going to pay for the wall? why didn't he tell ben carson he
4:16 am
was pathological? why did he tell the people in that congregation they have nothing to lose? >> when ronald reagan was speaking in germany, he said mr. gorbachev tear down this wall. of course you moderate. any good leader does that. >> donald trump yesterday introduced this idea of a new civil rights agenda talking about jobs, talking about education, talking about safety. these are the plan that is the clinton campaign has said that donald trump does not have anything to address. he seems to be on that page now. >> yesterday donald trump was so scripted. he had the questions before he had this interview. so then he went is there and read a prepared statement.
4:17 am
the safest place for anyone to go to have a conversation with african-americans is in the african-american church. when he talks about civil rights, it's credibility there. this is a guy who practiced a lot of civil wrongs. he disrespected muslim americans, women. >> incorrect. >> he does. it's there, boris. >> when was the last time hillary clinton gave a press conference? >> my point is, we must judge donald trump on his actions. it's easy for him to go there and talk. let's see how he acts. let's see if he furthers his out reach to fleafrican-americans throughout the campaign. >> hillary clinton is the scripted candidate.
4:18 am
she has not given a press conference in 274 days. donald trump has given 18. he is absolutely unscripted. he's an authentic candidate. that's why he's winning in the polls. >> be sure to catch our cnn special reports monday night starting at8:00 right here on c. also, hermine threatening to wash outlay boar d labor day pl northeast. >> the track has shifted just a little bit. while that may good news for jersey and delaware, not so good news for folks in other locations.

almost 22 minutes after the hour now. hermine is gaining strength and threatening to ruin labor day plans for millions of people. >> people under watches and warnings now from virginia up to new york. so we know that it's moving east. we would think that's good news. but you say not so much. >> it's good news for some but bad news for others. the good news is it's going to be better for folks in virginia, maryland and new jersey because it shifted farther east. that now makes more of an impact for folks around montauk new
4:23 am
york and the massachusetts. we're looking at the track. again it kind of brings it a little bit farther east. it's called post tropical cyclone hermine. the one thing i want you to focus on is that it still has a big issue in terms of rainfall. there's still expected to be about three to five inches of rain for massachusetts and rhode island. this is the start time. it's going to start raining in nantucket this morning. but the peak time will actually be tonight through labor day tomorrow. a similar scenario to providence, rhode island, newport, rhode island, even into montauk new york. really the peak is going to be tonight through the day tomorrow and in some cases even into the morning hours of tuesday. you want to still be on your guard because the storm surge is going to still be a threat. remember we talked about it's
4:24 am
now called post tropical cyclone hermine. what does that mean? what we have is a warm core storm. it's warm air from the base all the way to the top. that's what it was when it was saying florida into the carolinas. now we have that front that moved through that added some cooler air into the saint mary's. you've got a mix of colder air and some of the warmer air. atmospherically it changes the name but does not mean the storm has been downgraded or weakened in any sense. if anything, we may go back to hurricane force winds in the next 24 hours. $6.6 million. that's what hillary clinton raised at a single fund-raiser last month. should she keep making the rounds, raising money behind the scenes? or should she get back out to the rallies and speak to voters? plus, a family forced to

4:29 am
friend watched. >> affiliate wcco says a suspect in jacob's disappearance led the fbi to his remains. investigators do plan to release additional details later this week. but his abduction led to an act in 1994 requiring states to maintain sex offender registries and guidelines. >> parents stopping by the st. joe meat market remembered a time when kids used to play outside until the late hours. >> we went everywhere. you knew you had to be home for dinner and bedtime. you could roam anywhere. >> but on october 22nd, 1989, that all changed. >> it kind of took away an innocence. >> 11-year-old jacob wetterling's disappearance changed parenting forever. >> life changed after that very
4:30 am
much. >> sandy stocker used to live in jacob's neighborhood. she says her two children were outside playing that night and saw jacob and his friends before their fateful trip to the convenience store. >> every day things that we took for granted, allowing them to ride their bikes to a park, go to a park recertain. >> annie rogers says it matter where you lived. with jacob's remained found, could we ever go back to that time of innocence? >> it's changed forever. >> it's gone, i think. >> jacob's case garnered world wide attention. it was recently featured on the cnn series the hunt with john
4:31 am
walsh, which details the night that jacob was taken right in front of his brother and friend, the kidnapper telling them to run away or he'll shoot them. >> this guy wearing a mask came out. you could see his handgun. this guy told him to get off their bikes and lay down in the ditch or else he would shoot. he asked them one by one what their age was. after that, he had trevor and aaron, one by one run off into the nearby woods. not to look back or else he would shoot. as aaron was taking off he saw
4:32 am
the man grab jacob's arm. >> when he caught up to trevor and they felt safe enough to turn around and look back, they were gone. they were just gone. >> police asked the boys, are you sure you weren't playing with a gun and jacob just got hurt and you're afraid to tell us what happened? but they were absolutely clear, no, there was this man with a gun. >> we started to search the area of the abduction and start to fan out from there. everybody thought that within a few hours we would get it taken care of. >> when it comes to missing children, time is the enemy. if that child is going to be killed it's going to happen
4:33 am
within the first few hours. >> i never went to bed that night. yeah, we were up all night. it was just crazy. >> there are so many parallels in the wetterling case to our case of adam. i will never forget that night when darkness fell and we started to search for adam. i will never forget that realization and that loneliness. >> a dispute over a girl at a party turns fatal. that's what it's about tonight. anthony boroughs is wanted for killing a man and taking off to the philippines. a little more than two months until election day and
4:34 am
donald trump has now visited a black church in a play for the black vote. there were some protesters outside. his message to the congregation was one of unity. very different from his earlier rhetoric in the campaign. meanwhile his running mate mike pence says he will release his tax returns soon. but there's no word from the campaign or trump if he will follow suit. he said he will release his taxes at the end of an audit, but there's no legal reason he cannot release those before then. hillary clinton seems to be staying out of the spot flight so -- spotlight in some way, going around for high dollar fund-raisers. so far ahead in the fund-raising game here than trump is, but continuing to raise a lot of
4:35 am
money because she's spending a lot of money. >> that's right. hillary clinton spent the month of august focused mostly on fund-raising. she raised $140 million, smashed previous records. did 37 events in 12 states. she was candid in these fund-raisers also also spending some of her time focusing on preparing for their first debate coming up on september 26th. part of the reason whether i know on the is trying to raise so much money is in addition to spending on ads in obvious swing states, places like ohio, florida, pennsylvania, her campaign is also looking at some other steps. they recently announced a six figure ad buy in arizona, a state that is consistently reliable in republican presidential elections. hillary clinton's strength with latino voters could force donald
4:36 am
trump to play defense. states like georgia, north carolina could also be in play. >> what's the calculation from the campaign of spending this amount of time at these high dollar fund-raisers versus the rallies. >> part of it is trying to strike while the iron's hot. donald trump had a rough august early on. he was wrapping up that that fight the gold star family, the kahns. by staying off the trail and focusing on fund-raising clinton was able to build on her cash advantage while also allowing donald trump to dominate headlines when he was getting a lot of bad ones. that was part of the -- >> that lead has been cut
4:37 am
significantly for clinton. maybe that could be the withering of the post convention bounce. >> we've seen her lead in a lot of key states evaporate. in wisconsin it was 15 points among likely voters according to a marquet poll. she's facing accusatik yccusati not an accessible to voters. at the same time she's facing this criticism with the clinton foundation, this idea that it perpetuates that regular donors have access that other people don't have.

high stakes on the second day of the g-20 summit, likely the last time as president we'll see mr. obama together with all of these world leaders at once. this was a red carpet rollout as he arrived today. shortly after air force one landed a chinese official got into a confrontation here with a white house press aide. wat
4:43 am
watch. this american staffer apparently made the mistake of telling reporters where to stand. this chinese official reminds her who's in charge. our country there he says, our airport. later the chinese official blocked susan licrice from gett to the president, causing the secret service to step in. michelle kosinski is joining us. a lot of tension there. >> reporter: yeah. i mean, it was definitely strange. it happened more than once. it's been four times now in the two days that this trip has been going on that chinese security officials blocked the press from doing what they thought they were going to be able to do. and from just gaining basic access to events that in some cases are not much more than photo ops.
4:44 am
the tensions that flared up there, you saw one u.s. official said this is our president and our airplane. we're going to give our press the access they usually get. that's when he yelled, oh yeah, well it's our airport and our country. later there was another confrontation the same day. it almost came to blows between a member of the u.s. delegation and chinese security, arguing over what kind of simple access the u.s. press is going to get. it's another stark reminder that they don't treat openness in the press the same way that we do in the united states, not by a long shot. well, there is yet another twist in the controversy surrounding a pro quarterback. >> final cuts were made in the nfl yesterday. 49ers chose to keep colin kaepernick, who continues to sit

look at the all the people who showed up to watch mother teresa be officially declared a saint. tens of thousands filling st. peter's square where the pope was canonized. she devoted her life for helping the poor in india.
4:56 am
she received the nobel peace prize for her work in 1979. let's bring in cnn's vatican correspondent live in st. peter's square. this is such a celebration. amidst it, there are some critics who say she didn't deserve to become a saint. help us understand what's happening. >> mother teresa throughout her life had critics. a lot of the criticism was based on things like they felt she should have spent money for more medical care for the poor or spent money on issues that created povertipor poverty in t place. she said she didn't feel responsible for the masses, she felt responsible for the person who was in front of her. in the same way jesus did and the same way pope francis reminded everyone in the crowd to do. reach out to the person in front of you.
4:57 am
