1:03 am
was part of donald trump's strategy to paint hillary clinton as a member of the corrupted political establishment. and cast himself as the candidate of change. but even if he was up on this stage, as he's trailing in the polls it was almost as if there was a moment of introspection. he was talking about how if it comes out on november 8th if he ends up being a loser, this was a waste of not only his time but also his money. back to you, guys. >> there are e-mails hacked from the campaign account and public lehred on wikileaks. trump seized on the e-mails which purport to show clinton spokesman brian fallon communicating with the justice department about the freedom of information lawsuit. trump accused the clinton campaign feeding into it to, quote, be prepared to cover up for her crimes. two of note here, the information in question was publicly available had nothing to do with the fbi

1:15 am
president obama only said donald trump's name one time. but he said he doesn't have the temperament, the knowledge, the desire to obtain the knowledge or the honesty to be president of the united states. and criticizing them for calling donald trump words on that tape disgusting but continuing to endorse him. new toxicology report that the unarmed oklahoma man whose shooting by a police officer caught on camera had the drug pcp in his system. shelby has been charged in the death of the 40-year-old man. those who struggle with addiction should receive treatment, not a bullet in the chest. the justice department is pursuing criminal charges against a fiery arizona sheriff joe arpaio. a federal judge has determined that arpaio ignored court orders

1:22 am
construction projects if you look out in the distance also right now abandoned that's because they have to wait until the water levels begin to recede. which we're told could be days, weeks, perhaps even months for some portions here. so where's all of this water coming from? we're told that the nearby lumber river was already two feet above flood stage before hurricane matthew actually swept through the region. many people here actually thought the worst was over when the storm blew through over the weekend. and then of course, the water levels began to rise. that is the concern now. officials are keeping a very close eye on the water. there have been several rescues that happened in the last several days. in the meantime, many people are hoping the worst is over as they hope to get their lives back on track for the coming days. for now, school is closed and also communications difficult to manage here in this part of north carolina, john and christine.

1:25 am
turned up on the banks of arkansas. watching the implosion of a bridge. >> it's not much of an implosion, it took five hours to come down. the bridge finally budged after the eighth attempt. one man said the 93-year-old bridge was just built so well it could have stood another 100 years. all right, this was quite a game. the chicago cubs close to ending over a century of misery, they went four games. to stun in san francisco last night. chicago's 6-5 victory eliminates the giants. the cubs go to the national league series starting saturday against the dodgers or the nationals. the 4-1 comeback in the ninth was the biggest comeback ever to win a playoff series. a ninth inning comeback. it doesn't really happen like this. you're not supposed to come back that much that late to win the
1:26 am
series. so, now, the giants are done and the cubs are not. so there. donald trump battling hillary clinton and the war on the gop establishment. the latest developments, next. ng together... ...and could this happen again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? i spoke to my doctor and she told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots. but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... ...turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless you doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily...
1:27 am
and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you.

1:34 am
and he's also say that roger stone had been in much ji founder of wikileaks about julian sa song about the e-mail hack. >> so, i think it's a reasonable assumption or at least a reasonable conclusion that mr. stone had advanced warning in the trump campaign. and advance warning about what assange was going to do. >> the trump campaign is also out with new full contact tv ad that attacks hillary clinton over her stamina and her strength. watch. >> hillary clinton failed ever single time. agency secretary of state. now, she wants to be president. hillary clinton doesn't have the fortitude. strength, or stamina to lead in our world. >> the clinton campaign responded to the ad with a statement saying this good to know donald trump's meltdown has continued to his tv buys. as a b-movie script this would be have been rejected as being ridiculous. it's embarrassing and beneath

jobs than in past decades. the federal bank of san francisco put out a figure, the average growth is between 3 and 4%, the so-called new normal growth rate the fed says will be 1.5% to 1.75%. they cite lower productivity and manufacturing jobs. but americans are producing more in dollar terms than ever before, as a result of better technology and more efficient systems. a lot of folks are talk about how is productivity, how is technology factoring into what we should expect in growth rates. president obama has been silent about donald trump's crude comments. at an open microphone 11 years ago. until now until gusto, we should say. the president weighs in overnight. you'll want to hear this.
