2:08 am

2:09 am
burning up parts of los angeles. meteorologist kiran mcginnis has the latest. karen, hello. >> yes. we're watching that central atlantic basin. this is what we're talking about. this is irma. over the next five days it starts encroaching across land. we don't know that it will make landfall, but certainly is going to approach the lurieu ward islands. i wants to show you this in miles per hour as we go into monday. still look at a category 3 hurricane approaching the windward islands or leward
2:10 am
islands. our spaghetti models. you plug different things in the computer and you see. it converges a little bit toward the end of the next five days, but certainly if you live anywhere knew the leward islands or turks and caicos, you'll want to pay attention. beyond this, we're not exactly sure. the computer models would be all over the place if we projected it out. maybe it would completely bypass the coast of the united states. maybe this troubled area between cuba and south florida, maybe they could dart through that s vicini vicinity, especially with the warm temperatures. here's one of the models that brings it in. all right. i want to show you about the fire. this is in vicinity of burbank.
2:11 am
it's shut down activity in both directions. there are about 260 firefighters battling this blaze. this is called the le toux na canyon fire. it's because of the hills and canyons here. but the temperatures, natalie, have soared in this area. they've been between 38 and 2 celsius or between 100 and 110 degrees. the firefighters may not get a break until the beginning of the workwe workweek. >> all right. thank you for both of those storying. coming up, robert mueller may have more on the investigation between the trump campaign ties and russia. but now it's our turn to take control with stelara® stelara® works differently for adults with moderately to severely active crohn's disease.

welcome back. in the state of utah, police have apologized for arfting a nurse for refusing to withdraw blood from a patient. it was captured by cameras. take a look at this tense exchange. >> no, no. >> we're done. you're under arrest. >> somebody help me. stop! stop! >> i said we're done.
2:15 am
>> university of utah nurse alex wubbels says she was following hospital protocol. jeff payne said his supervisor told him to arrest her. she was later releasinged without charges after sitting in a police car for 20 minutes. payne and another officer are now on leave as an internal investigation looks into what happened there. u.s. president donald trump is revolvesed to announce on tuesday whether he'll keep obama's protection in place for immigrants who came in as children. daca protects young immigrants known as d.r.e.a.m.ers from deportation. the president said he's still considering what he'll do. >> should the d.r.e.a.m.ers be worried? >> we love the d.r.e.a.m.ers. we love everybody.
2:16 am
>> he said it's something congress has to fix. >> there are people who are in limbo. these are kids who know no other country who were brought here by their parents and don't know another home, and so i really do believe that there needs to be a legislative solution. that's one that we're working on. and i think we want to give people peace of mind. so i've had plenty of conversations with the white house about this issue, and i think the president as well has mentioned he wants to have a humane solution to this problem and i think that's something we in congress are working on and need to deliver on. >> in the meantime special counsel robert mueller may have new information in the investigation between the trump campaign and russia. we get more on this from cnn's jessica schneider. >> reporter: special counsel robert mueller has knew details about the real reason james comey was fire. they handed over a letter that
2:17 am
was drafted to comey but never sent in which the president explains his rationale for the firing. the details of that letter have not been disclosed. the "washington post" reports it was a multi-page letter that details trump's frustration that states comey said the president was not part of the investigation. there was a different one written by deputy rod rose enstein sent. he faulted the former fbi chief for his handling of the clinton e-mail situation. he says his lawyers are working with mueller. >> to the extent the prosecutor is interested in these matters, frankly i don't have anything to add beyond that. >> the letter comes as the president's lawyers a s ars are the case. a source familiar with the memo
2:18 am
says the legal team lay out the president's constitutional right to fire for any reason and argues that comey's questionable credibility prompted the firing. but it was the president himself who admitted to nbc that he fired comey in part because of the russia investigation. >> in fact, when i decided to do it, i said to myself, you know, this russia thing with trump and russia is a made up story. >> reporter: mueller's team is also coordinating with snyderman delving into the financial matters. any threat a prosecution from schneiderman could prompt manafort to cooperate in the broader russia investigation. meanwhile a congressman is insisting they were not behind
2:19 am
the wikileaks matter last year. he met with them in london where assange was granted asylum. rohrabacher is promising to brief the president on the details assange disclosed. >> and i understand that a meeting with myself and the president is being aarranged. but the purpose is the alert the american people to the truth. >> reporter: and the russian american lobbyist who was inside that meeting is telling his story. the "financial times" reports a man testified before a grand jury. special prosecutor counsel mueller is using on august 11th. he took the meeting when he was promised damaging information. he has agreed to sit down with the senate judiciary committee for a meeting behind closed doors as the investigators dig
2:20 am
into the 2016 meeting. they revolves him to appear as soon as this month. it estill unclear if don junior will testify, but they say an open session is still on the table. on another related russian front, it's a diplomatic tit for tat that's been building for mondays. friday was the deadline moscow gave the u.s. the number of diplomats to reduce. now russia's foreign minister sergey lavrov said russia didn't start it, and when talking about the relations, he used the dance analogy. >> translator: regarding the usa, as the president repeatedly said, we have not looked for fights with the american people.
2:21 am
you need two to tango. so far in our opinion the american party has been performing a solo break dance again and again. >> you never knew break dancing would make its way into this situation we are in with russia, but where are we in the break dance as far as did we comply, the u.s., that is, with moscow's kwi wishes as far as reducing diplomats? >> well, at least now what the united states argues, this is all an issue of parody. so the u.s. and russian would agree they have the same number of diplomats because it's drawn down and the same 234u78 ber of consulates and that's what the united states was arguing when it ordered the united states to close that consulate in san
2:22 am
francisco and two annexes, one in new york and one in washington, d.c. that response by sergey lavrov sounded kind of tongue in cheek. you have a comment that is being quoted in the russian media from a senior aide to president putin saying this is essentially this is a raider takeover. and then on the website there was a statement from a spokesperson calling this a blatant violation of international law and also saying that the u.s. secret services have said that they ar conduct a search, forcing diplomatic parties to leave
2:23 am
their apartments. i'm sure we'll get a reporting today which is supposed to happen today, which is saturday. that's the deadline for the russians to turn over or to at least vacate that consulate. it's become very sensitive. in fact, there are almost echos of the cold war, natalie. there was video of smoke coming from one of the chimneys of one of the consulate of san francisco. the fire department said don't worry, it's just a smoke alarm. it's not a fire. but then there were allegations by one u.s. lawmaker that this is, indeed, kind of cold war burning documents, et cetera. there's no cover fir nation of that, but it gives you a feeling of the level of concern and anger, i think, now on the russian side. there's been anger on both sides. so the question is where i think vladimir putin is going to take
2:24 am
this. he's the person who will have to decide how they -- in a direct sense respond to the americans. and it could be tit for tat or it could be something more serious. but it's certainly a very, very disturbing chapter right now in the relations between the two countries. >> absolutely. thank you, jill. we're going to talk now with research of american political science and the author of "america after obama," amy green. she 's also a professor and she joins us from paris. thanks for meeting with us. we go back to the trump story and his issue of whether to do away with this daca program that we heard paul ryan say should be saved, texas doesn't like it, wants the president to get rid of it. what kind of situation is president trump in on this and it sounds like he's kind of softening his heart for these children. >> yeah. i mean trump has always been
2:25 am
sort of ambiguous. one of his campaign promises was to repeal daca the day after his election. the sum porter base, they're clearly not happy with president trump not adhering to his promise. at the same time he's saying these d.r.e.a.m.ers are close to his heart. obviously the objects of the decision having to be made now, and apparently it's coming out on tuesday are terrible because as you mentioned texas is not particularly, you know, pleased. they're the second largest, i think, population of daca of d.r.e.a.m.ers. and so obviously to make any kind of announcement in revoking this plan especially given what texas is going through now would be a cat stloastrophic time for president. also for members of within his party as you mentioned paul ryan among them. >> right. and texas has said it will take
2:26 am
this matter to an unfriendly court if the president does away with it. but he did tell them the recipients should rest easy. he says, i really understand the situation now. so something, yes, has impacted him in this situation where it's the same like we heard one thing on the campaign trail, he gets into office, he hears more, learns more, and then softens. >> right. it's possible. as you mentioned, one of the state's attorneys general from texas brought about the complaint, but then again you have the population situation which is quite different. and, of course, you know, that's one of the great ambiguities of trump. but no matter what happens with his decision to stop daca, modify daca and restrict it or maintain it in some other form asking congress to find the solution. in a way the damage is already
2:27 am
done. you see this immobilization among d.r.e.a.m.ers ginn the rights to fully emerge as members of society with the protections that would allow them to live productive lives within the united states and there's this sense of fear of this almost existential fear. i spoke to some people who say there's a notion of a real threat. whatever the decision, whatever the president announces on tuesday, in a way, the damage is also there, letting the populations know there is -- nothing is safe. so i think that no matter what, you have a degree of damage. and even if trump has the idea of rebuilding daca, they would have to start engaging with communities that are already in opposition to his presidency. >> we thank you, amy green. next, it will be tax reform, the burj, and his wall. he threatens to shut down the government if they don't give money for the wall.
2:28 am
we'll talk about that prapsz some other time. thanks for joining us, amy. still ahead, floodwaters receding. protection by the u.s. military and an army of volunteers. we'll have that story for you live from texas. that's why you . with 9 grams of protein, and 26 vitamins and minerals... for the strength and energy, to get back to doing what you love. ensure, always be you.

in texas. at least 16 people were killed, mostly children. it's killed more than 1,200 people across the region since june. south korea says it has agreed from principle with the united states to bilateral ties. president trump says he'll still consider weathhether to protect undocumented d.r.e.a.m.ers. his decision is revolvesed tuesday. u.s. house speaker paul ryan is urging the president to keep the program and says it's something congress has to fix. parts of the los angeles metro area are under a mandatory evacuation order because of this growing wildfire. the fire broke out friday afternoon and has now consuming
2:33 am
more than 800 hectares, some 12,000 acres. about 200 homes have been evacuated so far. the death toll from hurricane harvey has risen to 50. they asked congress for nearly $8 billion in emergency aid. the president will visit the state on tuesday. more explosions and fires are likely after the factory's cooling systems were knocked o it in the storm. george howell is back with us live there in texas. george, even though there are so many issues that this state has to deal with, it's still so wonderful to see that people from all even are still coming in to help them out. >> there is a resilience among residents here and certainly those people who are coming in to this state to help. but, natalie, as you point out, there will many towns in and
2:34 am
around houston damaged. there's a town called wharton, texas, the birthplace of renowned anchor dan rather. we get more from our affiliate. >> reporter: this has been a staging area for first respoernlds. these are first responders all the way from phoenix, arizona, los angeles, even oakland, california. fema is here and the atf are here helping the city of wharton. video from sky eye. it's been cut off from all directions for days now. we were able to get in earlier on a big monster truck. there have been a number of water rescues over the last several days. shelters have opened up, but since the town has been so hard
2:35 am
to get to, supplies have been running out. dried goods on an atv truck on the way. a big mission to help the livestock and the floodwaters here. we spoke with john hale who organized this mission using an app. >> what would have happened? >> they would have been dead in the water because this really helped. when these guys were telling me how do you know these people are needing help, we knew because of zill zillow. >> reporter: the animals are getting scrubbed down and disinfected. in the other lane pets are being scrubbed down before they go to shelters. the good new, the floodwaters are going down.
2:36 am
>> reporter: the reporter there with ktrt in texas. now, a small army of volunteers made their way helping with all the rescue operations taking place. adam marr is a military volunteer. he spoke of his story. >> we got down there wednesday as the storm moved over there. conditions were deteriorating. you had one of the largest refineries in the country that's under water and smoke billowing. the clouds are looking very ominous, and everybody's trying to get boats into the water into this residential neighborhoods. when you get to the families and see the looks and faces of despair, it's very hard to swallow. the good light on that, is the hope and just the sense of, hey, somebody's here for me, i'm going to be okay when you
2:37 am
arrive. >> what were people telling you? when you pulled them out of their house and you put them on their boat, what did they say to you? >> just thank you. there's a little bit of shock and disbelief. a lot of people tried to hold down as long as they could or like in port arthur's situation, it came on so fast, they didn't have time to get out. really there's not a lot of talk. you know, you ask them, hey, how are you doing considering the circumstances. a lot of people would smile and give a good spirit attitude of, hey, i'm alive, so i'm making it. that's one thing i want people to take away from this and that's no matter the race, religion, creed, political alignment, what this was was people helping people. it's sad that it had to happen, that hurricane harvey took for it to happen, but i think what you're going to see is this is going to go down as one of the
2:38 am
finest moments in american history. >> now, we are revolvesing the u.s. president to arrive here in the houston area. the white house says it will give $1 million to the houston efforts. at first it was thought that the president was going to give his own money. now that's not entirely clear. we asked for clarification. take a listen. >> do you know if that's going to come from his own money or the trump foundation? >> he's got finalized where all of that is going to go. i would use that as a perfect segue. if you have suggestions, he's open. he's gotten a couple. >> whether it's going to be his personal money? >> i haven't had a chance to do that, but i will. >> so no answer there really. the mayor of the city says 75 to
2:39 am
$100 million to be needed for recovery here. natalie, a lot of money that will be needed for sure. don't forget, of course, if you can help out, visit to find vetted charities that will help in the hurricane disaster zone. natalie, you see these images and you really do understand what people are dealing with here, although, there's that sense of resilience as people push forward. >> certainly hoping that with all the money coming in, perhaps something of this magnitude can be prevented in the future. george, we thank you. we'll see you soon. coming up here, first in kenya, the country's top court throws out the president's election win. we'll tell you how he reacted. in just one hour. ♪ taking care of business

south korea says it has agreed with the u.s. in principle to revise a treaty limiting the range and strength of its ballistic missiles. they spoke on the phone friday as our will ripley reports from pyongyang. there were also signals that two leaders and diplomacy could still work to curb north korea's missile program. >> it seems as if the u.s. has not ruled out diplomacy. in a phone conversation with south korean president. they reaffirmed their view that it is important to apply maximum sanctions and fraesh on north korea so that it refrains.
2:44 am
now, they have insisted sanctions aren't going to work. here in north korea, despite a u.s. flyover involving threats and bomber, there's not the strong retaliatory effort like there was. this time around north korea put out a commentary in the newspaper saying that it's time for the u.s. to change its long-standing position of refusing to acknowledge north korea as a nuclear power. they didn't specifically say that, but they said it's time to acknowledge north korea's position in the world has changed and if the u.s. doesn't change its approach, north korea will continue to develop and put the u.s. in greater danger.
2:45 am
that's them essentially saying recognize us and seat us at the table and don't tell us to throw out all of our weapons. in the past u.s. diplomacy has fallen apart for a lot of reasons. would they allow inspections of their nuclear arsenal? would they really freeze development? there's a lot of complex issues to work out. at least for the time you have both the united states and north korea to indicate a willingness for diplomacy but they still have a long ways to go. kenya's court has ordered a new vote within 60 days. uhuru kenyatta said he respected the court's decision but later called the court justices crooks. our reporter is nairobi. >> the decision is hereby issued

however, the majority ruled. meanwhile in the streets mr. odinga's strongholds, celebration erupted. the decision was clearly felt in areas like this, olympic in the center of the most massive sprawling slum of nairobi, indeed one of the largest in africa. the court ruled friday the country must recast their vote for president in the next 60 days. they laid the blame at the foot of the independent election tore's commission saying the iceb failed and neglected to act in accordance with the constitution. the head of the commission suggested that the discrepancy between the electronic results and the manual count was the
