mickelson coming in second for a sixth time. >> "new day" starts right now. this is "ñew day" with boy, oh, boy. i am chris cuomo. it's june 17th. it's monday. 6:00 in the east. just when i thought it couldn't get more exciting, you hear james earl jones saying your name. how much better? >> does that mean we arrived? that is how i would like to start my day every day. good morning, everybody. i'm kate bolduan. thank goodness this day is finally here. a little butterflies, but feeling good. >> we've got a lot of fancy new digs behind us, but we're going áo have fun. think you might see behind the scenes stuff as we work out the kinks. >> exactly. everything is brand new here, including the show, but also the poll we ha+e this morning, brand new. we're talking about a dramatic shift in the president's numbers
as he begins the g-8 summit in northern ireland. president obama's approval rating dropped eight points since just last month, from 53% to 45%. the number of people who disapprove of obama went up 9%. also, after a week of revelations about the nsa's surveillance programs, 40% say the government has gone too far when it comes to restricting civil liberties. what does it all mean? coming to break it all down is john king, cnn's national correspondent. d8glad to see you, brother. >> welcome. glad to see you all. >> the question is how do you explain this drop? >> reporter: don't overinvest in one poll. never overi'vest in one poll, but there are clear flashing danger and warning signs for the president in our new numbers this morning. number one, let's look at younger people. the president back in the election, both elections, the people have been great for the americans. young americans more than anyone
concerned about privacy. they don't like their phones, their e-mails being looked at by by young voters, down 17 points in one month. that's a huge swing in one month. that's a key part of the president's base. that's a big deal.ç now look at independents. the president is going to win rating right there in just a month. pqr(j they hear about this, they're concerned. they actually support the idea of the government tracking terrorists. they think this president might have gone too far. little big. people get to the competence question, can a democratic president, a president who believes in the government as an instrument for good, if people start to doubt he can manage the >> let's unpack it one step at a time, john. the first is trustwort$iness. no politician wants to take a hit to that, right? is fair point. what does that mean in context? we're not just talking about policy. we're not saying we don't like the economy. we're not saying it's this one program. we don't trust you. >> reporter: and that becomes a
huge problem for a progressive presi"ent who needs to tell people, let me use the government to make you) life better. if you don't trust him, his disapproval rating is up and you think government is too big -- 6 in 10 americans now think government is too big, that he can't manage it effectively. this is like a political version of an underwater mortgage, if you will. his disapproval is above 50. people don't trust the government. you look at this coming out, is he trustworthy? 49% say yes. that's up 58% since just last month. so he's taking a hit. something has americans stoppint and saying, hey, wait a minute. when you're early second term with the midterms just around the corner, don't invest in one poll, but if you're president and you know the clock is ticking, that's trouble. >> it's one thing about the nsa or about a policy, but if it's whether or not he's believable, it makes it difficult to come back, even it's just one poll. john, thank you very much for helping us unpack it. we'll have you on plenty on "new
day." still two hours ago, the president arrived in northern ire lapped for the g-8 summit, this as an explosive report in a british newspaper, "the guardian," who claims uk intelligence officials spied on their allies at two g-20 summit meetings in london in 2009. the source for the story is familiar, nsa leaker edward snowden. jessica yellin is traveling with the president. she's joining me from ireland. jessica, welcome to "new day." >> ry8orter: thanks, kate. good morning. it's already a busy day here. mrs. obama surprised a crowd of irish students, introducing her husband before a big speech she jusá gave on peace. she and the girls made the trip, and they will go to dublin to çee some obama family history. as for the big story you just talked about and the president and the latest revelations from "the guardian," they're certain to put a chill on an already tense set of meetings this
afternoon. the report alleges classified documents show the u.s. tried to intercept then russian president dmitri medv vedyev's phone call. the president will talk to russia over syria, afghanistan, and the fight against terrorism, and this latest report is not going to warm the mood in that % room, kate. >> have you gotten any specific reaction from the administration on this report? >> reporter: the administration is not commenting directly on the report, but you could argue that "the guardian" article will take some heat off the u.s. because it alleges that the british were busy in 2009 setting up fake internet cafes to download foreign diplomats' e-mails, accounts, and passwords. if true, then you know the u.s. isn't alone in its snooping. the u.s. says all of these reports are irresponsible and egregious and will damage
counterterrorism efforts. all these revelations, all the snowden news are certain -- and the timing of this release are certain to ensure maximum discomfort at the meetings today, kate. >> i would say that. jessica yellin traveling with the president for us. not what they want to be talking about. major economic issues. >> it's not going to go away. let's stay on the issue of sur+eillance. in that exclusive cnn poll released just moments ago, it shows most americans support government surveillance of phone records. 51% of those polled say it is right for the government to track americans' phone calls. 48% say it's wrong. let's bring in dana bash joining us from capitol hill, where we're learning new information this mornr'g about just how much information the nsa was given by apple and facebook, among other companies. dana, welcome to "new day." d8it's great to have you. what's the latest? >> reporter: thank you. great to be here.
we're told that intelligence agencies might declassify details of thwarted plots as soon as today, chris, thanks to pressure from lawmakers here who now have to publicly defqnd these programs they've secretly been voting on and overseeing for years. a full court obama americans' concerns about secret surveillance programs led by the republican house intelligence chairman. >> if you can see just the number of cases where we've actually stopped a plot, i think americans will come to a different conclusion than all the misleading rhetoric i've heard over the last few weeks. >> reporter: intelligence agencies are now working to declassify specifics a!out dozenses of terror plots that the national security agency director told congress the secret service programs helped disrupt. over the weekend, the government unlocked a terror. they helped prevent terror lots "here in the homeland and in more than 20 countries around
the world." supporters of surveillance programs tried to beat back thoughts that the government is listening to phone calls in the u.s. >> it's against the law for the u.s. to record and monitor americans' phone calls. >> reporter: another sup(orter, dick cheney, someone who rarely agrees with the obama white house, does on this. the gop vice president on the day of 9/11 says these programs cát have prevented that attack. >> i guess i'd ask everybody to pause and don't automatically fold the nsa in with the other stuff that's going on in the obama administration because this is a program run by professionals. it's done great work. it has saved lives. >> reporter: but nay sayers like colorado democrat mark udall are not giving up. >> i don't think that collec$n% millions and millions of americans' phone calls -- this is the metadata, time, place, to whom you direct the calls -- is making us any safer. >> reporter: mark udall is one of several lawmakers who have been pushing in closed,
put more curbs on these programs. he's hoping, now that they've become public, he'll have better luck doing that, chris. >> dana, it seems there's a lot of talking around the actual facts here. when are we going to hear, here's what the program's doing, here's what's wrong, here's what justifies snowden coming out. here's why he's a patriot and not just a leaker. when will we get the there there? >> reporter: when it comes to declassifying information, which is really how they hope to show the there there, we'll probably see it as soon as today. the problem that we have, as you uz know, is there are a lot of people inside the intelligence agencies who are not comfortable revealing anything that's classified, especially on foiled terror plots because they're concerned about revealing sources and methods. so there's a very big risk, internal debate going on, on just how to do that. but there is pressure on not just lawmakers, but companies you referred to, apple and t got to
show americans why we're doing it. we have to prove it. we hope these details will help. especially when you have the leaked documents out there. dana bash, thanks so much for your reporting. we appreciate it. there is cautious hope this morning that iran's new president elecd this weekend could help ease re&ations with the west. the country's new president is while vowing to release scores of political prisoners. live from abu dhabi this morning, the question for everyone here in the u.s. is what could this mean for tense or nonexistent u.s.-iranian relations, particularly on the critical issue of the country's nuclear program? what are you hearing? >> reporter: it's still way too early to say, kate, but certainly this is a candidate who's come in and injected some optimism and hope that maybe iran can improve its relations with the west. coming into this campaign, many thought this was a sham
election, that the supreme leader and the hard line establishment hp" set the stage for one of their loyalists to come in and win. but in comes hassan rohani, a dark horse, who starts passionately criticizing the regime, calling for improved relations with the west, and the opposition movement, the @&hc reformists responded to him. they came out en massq he not only won, he trounced the field. however, he's not going to be able to change things by in the end, the big man in charge in iran who decides everything about the nuclear program is the supreme leader, and he's the final decider. certainly some optimism in iran after this win. >> some optimism in a country where they doesn't seem to be much very often. reza sayah, thanks so much. we're going to be speaking to christiane amanpour with much more on this and other topics. a lot going on with big implications for the u.s. >> just because it seems like it's far away, always has implications with what we do
here at home. >> the iranian nuclear program. let's get to the stories developing right now. the man known as the principal architect of the september 11th attacks in court today, khalid sheikh mohammed and four suspected co-conspirators expected to appear in a program. the pretrial hearings could take much of the week. and the motion changes. a hit man and key witness testifying today against mob boss james "whitey" bulger. the two, once very tight, will meet face to face for the first time in 31 years. john martorano's testimony could be pivotal. he's expected to describe murders they allegedly committed together. bulgq) is charged in the murders of 19 people along with corruption and racketeering charges. was the super bowl ring intercepted, or was it a gift?
a spokesman for the patriots owner robert kraft says he was just spinning a yarn for laughs when he said rusárp' president vladimir putin swiped his bling. putin's spokesman says it was a gift and called kraft's story weird. you can count on having much more in the next hour. miami heat heading home, facing elimination in the nba finals. last night the spurs took a 3-2 the spurs manu ginobili knocked down 18 points. tuesday night, game six in miami. chris, pop the popcorn. a game is happening. take a look at this. a shocked teenager in washington state grabbing her phone when she saw a bear run past her car. >> oh my [ bleep ]! i'm following a bear. >> we've got a foot pursuit, people. 18-year-old daniela matthews used some pretty colorful when she was in hot pursuit.ut,
the bear jumped a fence in a neighbor's yard. by the time animal control arrived on scene, that bear was g-o-n-e. i don't know. i guess i wasn't in that car. i don't think i'd be chasing after a bear. >> can i tell you? i did this. there was a coyote in my neighborhood a couple of months ago. o idea why i decided to chase it out of the area with my car. >> how did it end? is >> i'm slightly embarrassed i just told that on national television. it just was instinct. >> i was going to place a citizen's arrest. >> i'll take chasing the bear rather than the other way around. >> the bear chasing you? >> any day. story of the morning, sports, but important to get at. deja vu all over again for golf's phil mickelson sunday at the u.s. open. the man known as lefty, the fan favorite, coming so close as he has so many times before. mickelson finished two shots behind the winner, england's justin rose, kudos to him. beautiful round played by him.
good enough to tie for second for mickelson, and that's great. this is a record sixth time he's been runner-up. of course, in sports, you want to be number one. cnn's rachel nichols has more on this. g second, not a bad word in itself. perfectly respectable, but in this place, at this sporting event, for this man, it is the very definition of anguish. and on sunday, when phil mickelson finished runner-up at the u.s. open for a record sixth time, it was almost too much to take. >> for me, it's very heart breaking. this could have been the big -- a really big turnaround for me and how i look at the u.s. open, the tournament that i'd like to win after having so many good opportunities. >> reporter: in 2006, mickelson led this tournament heading into thq final hole, then hit his driver into the roof of a nearby tent, followed by a shot straight into a tree. this year he started the week in california, attending his daughter's eighth grade graduatrjjy
he then hopped a cross-country red eye, went straight to the course, and teed off for his opening round on no sleep. so when mickelson went into sunday, father's day, with the lead here once again, even eventual winner justin rose thought a mickelson win was fated. >> he really showed the true spirit of father hood, being at home for his father's graduation earlier in the week, and putting the tournament as his second priority. that's very admirabladmirable, for him. >> reporter: it wasn't just father's day. sunday was mickelson's birthday, his 43rd, a reminder of his dwindling chances here. more salt in an already open toughest for me because at 43 and coming so close five times, it would have changed the way i looked at this tournament. if i never get the open, then i look back, and i think that -- every time i think of the u.s. open, i just think of heart break. >> look, he's won his majors. i love lefty. i believe he's such a great
competitor, and you saw how he went to see his kid's graduation first. it's tough to be second. you want to be first. but he's the real deal. >> as the great band journey put it, don't stop believing. > and a new twist in colorado's worst wildfires in history. were they caused by an arsonist? plus, is this man who's lived in minnesota for decades a former nazi leader? is one report says yes. the family fightin(p()y i want to make things more secure.

for these firefighters to hold the perimeter, and go into the fire, find any hot spots, and put them out. >> george, you're talking about 65% containment. that's a big jump from over the weekend. weather was not cooperating last week. was it weather, or were the firefighters just finally able to get in front of it? >> reporter: it was a combinatrjz of both. on friday we got this big rain shower, and then saturday the same. that helped with firefighters because t$at's when they were going in. they were putting out many of those hot s(ots. they're making a lot of progress. kate, the hope is that more rain comes here today, mav!e in the next day or so. that will help him to put this fire out. >> put the fire out, and then the investigatio' continues. george howell on top of it for us. thanks so much, george. if you care about the àdefense of marriage act or affirmative action, it could be a huge, even historic day at the supreme court. justices are about to rule on some controversial and divisive cases that could redefine what it means to be an american.

memoir, claiming he helped found the ukraine self-defense legion, an offshoot of the nazis. his son claims he's innocent. >> the associated press intentionally and maliciously defamed ou) father, michael karkoc. >> reporter: the associated press alleges mr. karkoc lied about his military service when he entered the u.s. in 1949, was in charge of the nazi directed divisio' when it nearly wiped out the polish town, and the unit may have taken part in the ruthless oppression of warsaw during the end of the war. even the associated press admits there is no evidence mr. karkoc was directly involved in any of it. >> to quote ap, "records do not show that karkoc had a direct hand in war crimes," my father was never a nazi. >> reporter: still the ap says it sticks by its reporting, and the department of justice will only say it looks into all
credible allegations of nazi w!ñ crimes. if this one is found to be credible, trying mr. karkoc in court could be a long process. >> what they will try to do is try to strip him of his united states citizenship and then deport him. >> reporte9: so what would have to happen, he would have to be denaturalized as a u.s. citizen, deporte", and then tried eventually in either germany or poland. all of that could take a long time. at over 90 years old, it's not clear he would make it it t$rough that entire process. back to you guys. >> still quite a set of revelations. d8much. still coming up on "new day," a big league pitcher carried off the field after being struck in the head by a vicious line drive. is it time for baseball to think more about safety. also an amazing recovery in there we'll tell you about. and a beauty queen has a brain cramp. the morning miss utah would like to forget. ahead on "new day."

morning from 53% last month. that's eight points. now 54% of people disapprove of the president. here to help us break it down, john king, cnn's chief national correspndent. john, welcome back on the show. good to have you. obviously, they're troubling. obviously, it was a big drop. the question is how do you think the administration will try to package this? >> you try to move on. you try to focus on things that are your strength. chris, kate, and michaela, good morning to you. you're a second term president. the clock is ticking towards the midterm election where history tells you your party is going to suffer. you're trying to get things done in the first couple of years. d8he wants republicans to work with him on immigration reform, some of his spending priorities. he wants to go back to conservative democrats and maybe make a second run at background checks and gun control. everybody in office will look at these pollings and say you have a weaker president at the moment. don't overinvest in one poll. remember how he won two elections, independence and young voters. look at the numbers, a 17-point drop in his approval rating in
just one month. they don't like people reading their e-mails, tapping their phone calls. now the government says theje accusations by mr. snowden are overexaggerated. independents, the president down ten points in just a month. when you look at this and you're the president trying to get things done, you need to try to turn those numbers around. if you're a republican or democrat who might disagree with the president, you're going to look at these numbers and say, i don't need to play with him right now. he's weak. let's see if he can turn it. >> you list out the major points. startling. 18 to 29-yqp)-olds dropped in their support by 17 points. you just mentioned the independents dropping by 10 the president doesn't have to worry about re-election. o work with him. what about democrats especially who are worki'g towards what do these numbers say for them? >> reporter: that's the problem here. if you look back at the last couple years of the george bush presidency, rising opposition t% the iraq war, katrina, and people thought especially repu!licans, president was trying to push immigration, trying to push social security,
and democrats started backing away. if they start backing away from president obama, it's a big deal. they have a very polarized washington. the president's personal characteristics down too, now 49%. a big drop just from may. it's a democratic president trying to convince you, as the government implements the obama health care plan, trying to convince you government is an instrument of good. 57% of americans now disagree with the president's views about the size and the power of government. 53% say he can't govern, can't manage the government effectively. again, it's only one poll, but if those numbers stick, especially for a democratic president, getting tough things already hard gets even tougher. >> especially when, john, having problems with policy is one thing. when it's pe)sonal, much more difficult to deal with politically. true enough. >> reporter: the great strength of this president has always been through the tough times that people like him. always been his rallying base when you do have. remember he went through a very tough economy. one of the striking parts is that the economy is actually
starting to get better. when the president's nus!ers are going down but the economy is going up, if you study politics, it's that rising tide of an economy that holds a president in trouble up. if you're team obama and people are feeling better about the economy but your numbers are going down, the new warning light is flashing. >> john, thank you for that. appreciate that. maybe see the president doing some more feel good appearances coming up. >> that's exactly what we're going to see. president obama is in northern ireland for the g-8 summit. his trip comes aá a difficult time. the british newspaper, "the guardian," has dropped yet another security bombshel&. it claims in 2009 british intelligence spied on its allies at two g-20 summit meetings in london. our jessica yellin has more from the g-8 summit in ireland. >> reporter: kate, president obama arrived at the summit site, and he will sit down for his first one-on-one meeting in the next hour, and it's with british prime minister david casq) cameron. the two now have something new in common. the latest report from "the
guardian" fingers both the u.s. and the uk for spying on foreign leaders. d8g-20 summit british and amerin spy agencies tried to intercept calls and e-mails from leaders, including the russians. the british are putting out a round of no comments on the report. the u.s. says all these reports about spying and surveillance are irresponsible and egregious and put the u.s.'s fight against counterterrorism at risk. but u.s. officials won't confirm or deny whether the u.s. tried to eavesdrop on russia's prqár"ent in 2009. this latest report, time to release the very first day of this g-8 summit is bound to spread the outrage here. now g-8 leaders can be angry at powers on both sides of the atlantic. kate? >> and changing the focus of what the summit is all about. major economic issues globally we'll still be dealing with. and now the focus is going to be
on are you spying on me or not? >> got to talk about what's on the table. áhe white house trying hard to convince americans the nsa's secret surveillance is good for the country. it is a tough sell. take a look the aa brand new cnn/orc poll. 51% of americans think the government conducting records is the right thing to do. distinguished with this, 48% saying it was wrong, pretty much equal if you factor in the margin of error in the polls. let's bring in dana bash live from capitol hill this morning. da dp'a, again, welcome to "new day." what do these numbers mean in terms of where the policy will take us in washington? >> reporter: it means that government officials who say that these programs, these surveillance programs help stop terror plots are going to have to prove it. we're told that could happen as soon as today by declassifying details that show that these surveillance programs actually stop terror plots, made americans safer, and all of this is going to happen because of pressure from lawmakers who approved it and powerful executives at internet companies
who are forced to make it happen. a full court obama administration press to cals americans' concerns about secret surveillance programs led by the republican house intelligence chairman. >> if you can see just the number of cases where we've actually stopped a plot, i think americans will come to a different conclusion than all the misleading rhetoric i've heard over the last few weeks. >> reporter: intelligence agencies are now working to declassify specifics about dozens of terror plots that the national security agency director told congress the secret programs helped disrupt. over the weekend, the government unveiled a teaser. this document claiming phone data collection programs have helped prevent terror ploás, "here in the homeland and in more than 20 countries around the world." supporters of the surveillance programs are trying to beat back suggestions the government is listening in on calls in the u.s. >> it's against the law for the and monitor u.s.,
americans' phone calls. >> reporter: another supporter, dick cheney, someone who rarely agrees with the obama white house, does on this. the president says on the day of 9/11 these programs could have prevented that attack. >> i guess i would ask americans to pause and not lump the nsa this program has done great work. it has saved lives. >> reporter: but nay sayers like colorado democrat mark udall are not giving up. >> i don't think collecting millions and millions of americans' phone calls -- this is the metadata. this is time, place, to whom you direct the calls -- is making us any safer. >> reporter: and mark udall is one of several lawmakers on the intelligence committee who say they've seen the intelligence, and t$ey just don't believe these terror plots the intelligence agencies are saying were stopped really aren't helped much but the programs,
but supporters say that's simply not true. they're begging on the fact that, when it's releaseded to the public, they'll say, it's tangible. i understand it. >> when is the key word, dana. thank you very much for the reporting. when are we going to hear what's in the leaked documents? when are we going to know what's going on? we'll talk about nsa operations with house majority leader eric cantor. as a result of security threats by passengers, flights disrupted. a colorado bound flight and an egypt bound flight diverted to skwot lp scotland. pamela, what's going on? a very scary weekend for passengers. >> reporter: a very tense weekend, especially for nervous flyers like me. imagine being tens of thousands d8something is wrong with your that's what happened to passengers over the weekend.
is this rare, or could it be the norm? it's not the way passengers expected to arrive in denver on saturday. take a look at this cell phone video. a bomb squad, firefighters, and police rushed to a frontier airlines plane flying from knoxville after a man on board the flight claimed he had a bomb in his backpack. >> if you looked around, you could see everybody's eyes were real wide, and their jaws were dropped. >> reporter: nick dannonberger says he was sitting across the aisle from the unruly passenger and describes how the crew quickly jumped into action. >> they went and tried to remove the backpack from the guy and took him to the very back of the plane. then they started insulating it with other people's bags and seat cushions and what not. >> reporter: no bomb was found in the bag, and the man was new york's jfk airport found a threatening note inside a plane's bathroom, saying, i'll set this plane on fire. the flight was diverted to scotland. no one was harmed, and police
are still investigating the incident. >> my concern is are we seeing a large trend of nonviolent terrorist threats on aircraft? >> reporter: flight experts say passengers behaving badly is on the rise. this picture shouj a passenger duct taped to his seat after he became disruptive on a flight from iceland to new york in january. and just last month, a man on a flight from anchorage, alaska, to portland, oregon, attempted to open an emergency exit, passengers restraining him with seat belt extenders and shoe laces. these incidents can not only be frightening, but costly and inconvenient. >> you're talking about tens of thousands of dollars of cost to the airlines. you're also talking about obviously a lot of passengers being put out. >> and an air scare of a different kind. president george w. bush's flight was delayed after a pilot reported smelling fire on board.
everything was fine. but pilots say it's proof thpá aviation safety measures are working. still it's clear that these types of incidents take a tremendous toll in other ways. >> i was also thinking, as we were watching t$is, there's those scenarios where you think this happens to someone else. it doesn't happen tz me. they're happening more and more. unfortunately, they're bound to happen to you. >> it's very unsettling. that's what they're saying. travel has become so much more of a hassle, so much more inconvenient, and that puts people over the edge, according to experts we're talking to. >> i make a point of looking at the passengers i'm on the plane with now. i never used to do that. i geá into my book. i make eye contact, watch people, watch their behavior now. i never used to do that. >> now you have to watch a person at the emergency exit. are they going to try to open the door in flight? that's very troubling. >> cuomo is an air marshal. >> you've got layers of problems. flying is scary, and on top of it, just our national history what's happened with airplanes, and the threats of terrorism take it to a new level. that's why everybody is always on edge, as you saw with the passengers with the guy duct
taped to the seat. thank you very much. moving on to another story that is developing. a crime scene that covers 16,000 acres. that's what officials in colorado are dealing with as they look into the most destructive fire in the state's history. by the way, still burning and dangerous. let's bring in cnn's george howell in colorado springs. george, welcome on the show again this morning. what's the latest? >> reporter: chris, good morning. we know that an arson investigator is here on the scene. they're looking into arson as ját of many possibilities as it falls in the scope of scrutiny to be considered a crime scene. they're working to determine the point of origin. tpáuiut narrowing that down. we still do not yet know the cause for fire. want to bring your attention back to the sun coming up there. you see no smoke on the horizon. that's great news. yesterday we learned this fire is now 65% contained. the hope is that there will be more rainfall today as we saw over the weekend, chris. to help with this fire fight.
again, good news at this point. 65% containment with this fire. >> george, thank you very much. 65% is great. let's remind everybody. not over there yet. please keep your eyes and your hearts thinking about colorado. in less than three hours, we expect to hear from iran's newly elected president. many are calling hassan rohani a moderate. many are wondering how much of a reformer he really is. cnn's chief international correspondent christiane amanpour joins us. >> delighted to be here with you. >> here's the basic question. is the new boss the same as the old boss? s what the answer? >> you know, in a word, no. appearances matter. he is more centrist. we had eight excruciating years of the bombastic ahmadinejad. with this new man, who has publicly said he's a centrist, a moderate he's in the reformist camp. he wants to do something di#ferent. he said it for inside iran and outside iran. that will make a difference.
it will calm down the temperature and perhaps provide at least an opportunity. >> he wins big, gets a majority vote with multipeople in there. 18 million votes, they say, were cast. so that's good. on the other side, since '79 a fixture in the government. he's alignedkhomeini. he is known to have suppressed pro democracy movements. how do you balance? is >> not pro democracy movement, and everyone was aligned with khomeini. these are the founding fathers of the revolution. all of these were moderates, but within the system, there is a group of people who are more centrist and who want a better day for iran, particularly with the united states and the west. now is a huge time of trouble in iran, and this man wants to work his way out of it. will he be able to? will the united states seize the outstretched arm? we'll wait and see. >> the word syria now enters into the dialogue. already a pledge of support, you understand this world so much better. iran, shiite, helping assad, the head of syria.
shiite, in what was seen as a sunni-shiite conflict, or is it a thus! in the eye to the u.s.? does this man make it more likely we'll have to get involved? >> rohani, i don't think, will make it more likely. what i do think is the united states has committed itself to doing something very little so far. we don't know what the president is actually going to do beyond small arms. take it as a negotiation. you and i, we all know, if the president wants a negotiated settlement to syria, he's got to have a balance of power. right now assad is winning. so what the u.s. wants to do is try to bolster the rebels a little bit to make it a little bit more of a fair and level playing field because they want to have a peace conference. >> you know what people are worried about here, christiane. we can'tútake another incursion. we can't put more boots on the grou'd. we're still not out of iraq. you have afghanistan. how do you think this helps shape the dialogue for people here at home? >> first of all, there will be no boots on the ground. the president has made that very clear. and everybody's made that it's certainly not necessary. the idea is to try to arm and %
train the opposition, who the president has already put america's backing behind. if you back the opposition, you've got to give the moderate opposition the wherewithal to be able to stand up and create a level playing field in the event that either they win or you can have some kind of negotiated settlement. the president has brought the united states out of iraq. afghanistan will happen. and you're right, nobody wants another engagement. this is a vital issue, and the bad guys, iran, hezbollah, are aligned withxassad. >> christiane amanpour, thank you so much for the perspective. >> thank you. congratulations to all of you. >> we'll be listening what we hear in this spqq(r from president rohani. >> very important. we'll all bq listening. coming up in less than three hourák supreme court justices may rule on some controversial and very divisive cases that could redefine what it mea's to be an american. cnn's crime and justice correspondent joe johns is in d.c., outside the supreme court, with more. joe, we've got same-sex marriage. issue of affirmative action.
what could we see today? is >> reporter: we could see any of the four big cases, kate. this is the supreme court returning to the culture wars in this country, as they do occasionally. as you said, we have affirmative action. that's a question of whether you can use race in college admissions. voting rights. the question of whether the 1965 voting rights act could be a thing of the past. of course, those two big gay marriage cases and whether gay marriage ought to be treated the very same as heterosexual marriage in this country. these are issues right on the fault lines of red state and blue state america, and we could see any one of those four cases dehided today, kate. >> joe, on the issue -- on the same-sex marriage, on the is struck down or however the justices decide, it's a little convoluted thinking, but i wanted to get your thoughts on this. if the defense of marriage act, if the justices strike down that part of the defense of marriage
act any time, obviously, in this coming month, that leaves -- that creates more questions than answers for so many states, especially states who currently do not allow same-sex marriage. if they strike down that restriction against gi+ing federal benefits to same-sex couples, what does that mean for the states who don't allow same-sex marriage? >> reporter: it's really just a mixed bag, kate. as you know from covering this, all about how the court actually decides the case. so if you have a number of states -- and we do -- that say they don't believe in gay marriage, doesn't work for them, it creates a real conflict between them and the other states. a lot of people suggested you have sort of two americas going forway once again, red states and what they believe in and blue sáates and what they believe in. all about how the court decides a case. there are probably 20 different iterations of how they could, kate. >> joe johns, tracking it all for us. joe, thanks so much. >> you bet. >> huge cases.
again, another crazy end to the session. >> my mom says my tie's not straight. is it better now? all right, mom? better? >> thank you, mrs. cuomo, looking out. thank you, thank you. you want to continue? >> my whole morning's blown. >> you'll be fine. we'll play through. >> chris won't make it through. it's a very busy news morning. let's get to michaela pereira with the other stories developing. we begin with a major about face for north korea. it is proposing high level talks with the u.s., saying it is ready to discuss easing tensions and pulling the plug on its nuclear ambitions. a top north korean official says they're willing to meet at any time and at any place the u.s. wants. it also proposed talks with south korea this month, but that agreement fell apart. a bloody weekend in chicago. the chicago tribune reporting a staggering 46 people shot, 7 of them fatally, in separate incidents of violence. cnn has not been able to independently confirm these numbers yet.
chicago has seen a large dip in overall homicide and shooting numbers so far this year, but this latest rash of shootings is casting doubt on the chicago pd's crime fighting strategy. >ñ> it is week two of jury selection of the george zimmerman trial. the neighborhood watch volunteer charged with second degree murder for killing an unarmed florida teenager trayvon martin. zimmerman claims the shooting was in self-defense. so far, 29 jurors have passed initial screening by the prosecution and the defense. the six-person jury will be sequestered during the trial. today julie hermann takes over as athletic director of rutgers university. hermann replaces tim pernetti, who was forced to resign after coach mike rice was caught on tape physically and mentally abusing his player. some former volleyball players at the university of tennessee says hermann abused them when she coached there back in the '90s. she is denying those charges.

kraft was only joking when he accused vladimir putin of swiping his super bowl ring. putin denied it, saying it was a gift. here's john berman. he has more on the international swipe scam suggestion. >ñ it is a new day here at cnn. the qutáurjy is it a new day for the cold war? is it beginning again? president obama set to sit down with russian president vladimir putin in just a few hours with some of áhe world's most important issues on the agenda -- syria, nuclear proliferation. but no issue perhaps more contentious and more confusing than super bow& jewelry. vladimir putin is an imposing character, but is he a jewel thief? you decide. russian president vladimir putin was a kgb agent, martial arts expert, goes topless, and has intercontinental ballistic missiles. new england patrruj owner robert kraft, he has tom brady. so it's pretty much a fair fight. a fight between a nuclear super power and a football su(er power
over all things, jewelry. not just any jewelry, it's a brewing international incident over a ring, a super bowl ring. >> i'm tremendously humbled by this great honor. >> at a gala in new york city last thursday, kraft told the crowd that putin altjtáñ swiped his super bowl ring back in 2005, when they met in st. petersburg. according to kraft, putin admired the ring encrusted with 124 diamonds and said, i can kill someone with this ring. kraft went on to explain, i put my hand out, and he put it in his pocket, and three kgb guys got arou'd him and walked out. putin, a thief? a spokesman for the president says, nyet. "i was there when it happened. so what mr. kraft is saying now away from him and mr. putin and saw and heard how mr. kraft gave this ring as a gift." maybe it's a case of lost in
translation. literally, maybe he lost the ring because of translation, or maybe there were bigger global forces involved. "the new york post," which broke the story of kraft's comments on thursday quotes kraft as saying that white house officials urged him to say the ring was a gift. in the interest of u.s.-soviet relations. and now mr. kraft seems to be can baing off a bit. the patriots releasing a statement, "it's a humorous anecdotal story that robert retells for laughs. he loves his storing is at the kremlin, and as he stated in 2005, he continues to have great respect for russia and the leadership of president putin." >> so the 94 carat ring, which is big, is in the state library where all officials gifts are kept. it's worth $25,000. you know what's nice for robert kraft? his team has three super bowls.
so he's got more. i wouldn't show them off to angela merkel or anything like that. keep it to yourself. >> one aspect of this controversy is did robert kraft have a change of heart because he doesn't think the patriots will win another one any time soon because of the preemin essence of the jets in his division? >> stay tuned for that. >> that's coming, and it's going to be very eye-opening. there's another level of dimension to this. we have to get the moscow reaction. let's bring in cnn's phil black joining us this morning. phil, you understand the dimension of this. what's going on there in moscow? >> reporter: chris, there are many russians who often refer to vladimir putin as a thief, people who don't like him, but they're usually talking about allegations of stolen votes or stolen government money. never before jewelry. now, this precious ring, we understand, is being kept behind those historic red walls of the kremlin in a special vault reserved for the president's most valuable gifts. there it looks likely to stay because his spokesman has said if robert kraft is upset, if
he's suffq)ing at the loss, then president putin is prepared to buy him a new ring of equal value. there is no suggestion the original ring will be returned. we asked him about it. didn't even want to talk about that idea. however that ring came to be in vladimir putin's pocket, it looks pretty unlikely it's going to be returned to the man whose name is engraved on it. chris? >> phil black, thank you very much. here, did a little research. a gift is a legal thing, has legal elements. here they are. one, you must have donative intent. what do we know about that? >> excuse me? >> donative, to give. robert kraft gave him the ring, but then he said i put my hand back out. is that clear giving of a gift? acceptance. vladimir putin takes the gift, puts it in his pocket. known as the third element, receipt, walks away. >> you had me at donative intent. >> my mind just went blank. >> legally speaking, i think the
guy with nuclear weapons wins. >> always wins. >> always wins. weapon? >> i think he is. that's a great point. he's like a merb, multiwar headed intercontinental ballistic missile. >> i don't think he should get it back. it's in the kremlin. >> i would just say have fun with that. i'm not going to ask for it back. >> if this would have been the new york jets, this never would have happened. you only have one ring, you never give it away. >> separating you two. we're not going there today. >> it stings because it's true. let's move on to something that's much more -- >> you say it with authority. >> because my jets are not so bad. >> because you're a liar. very sweet one. a picture of a marine's weddi'g going viral. bree and josh curtis, a couple in lynchburg, virginia, holding hands before taking vows. their eyes are closed, of course. they're trying to avoid one

just the last month. also alarming, his disapproval numbers going up nine points. for the first time, a majority of americans do not believe he is honest and trustworthy. new poll numbers suggest revelations about the nsa surveillance programs and the irs's scrutiny of tea party programs are taking their toll. "the guardian" citing documents from nsa leaker edward snowden reports british intel tracked delegates at the g-20 economic summit back in 2009. this year's syria's civil war looms large at the summit. the u.s., the uk, and france trying to put pressure on russia over its support of the syrian government. frederick is in do maamascus jog us. good morning and welcome to "new day." i want to hear discussion about whether the g-8 is going to change anything. >> reporter: hi, michaela. i don't think anybody on the government side or the rebel side thinks the summit is going
to change anything in the short term. certainly, it will take more than one meeting to change anything simply because the violence is so bad. the street i'm standing on is called the meza highway. it's a major street in damascus. just 300 yards that way, there was a major suicide attack that hit a syrian military base checkpoint. those are the kinds of things you see every day. at the same time, you have the syrian government launching a major offensive in the north of the country. right now people say they're not even inclined to go to the negotiating table. on top of that, michaela, you have the whole thing about the chemical weapons, where the u.s. is, of course, now saying it fqq&s confident the syrian regime has used them. the russians say they believe that is, quote, fabricated. therefore, it's going to be very difficult for these two sides agree together let alone have this make any difference, michaela. >> frederik, we appreciate that. thanks so much. in other news, the couple children and sailing away to cuba are due in a courtroom this
morning. josh and sharon had lost custody of the two boys because o# drug and weapons charges. sharon's parents eventually got custody of the children. josh hakin tied up sharon's mom in her tampa home, took the children, and fled. the cuban government sent them back to the united states. we're told the boys were not injured. they have pleaded not guilty. this is an amazing father's day story sure to tug at your heart stri'gs. after being separated for 24 years, a woman who was adopted found her biological father. it turns out both volunteered at the very same phoenix rescue mission for an entire year but had never crossed paths until she called him. >> incredible to see both of us in the same place so comfortable and so familiar. >> when you start thinking about father'j day, in my mind, i and what he's done for me, and i think how he's blessed me to be a father. it's made my family complete. that kiss on the forehead is what gets me. pastor russell says he gave amy
up for adoption because he was struggling with addiction at the time. i'm p' adopted kid. those kind of stories -- >> people don't know how close to the heart this is. >> those kinds of stories are very, very close to home. it's a beautiful moment when that happens. rá doesn't always turn out great. when you see the reunions happen, it's life changing. >> thank you for bringing that to us. >> differe't kind of life changer we're going to talk to you about now. this blistering line drive to the ear saturday in a frightening scene. cobb carried off the field on a stretcher. he suffered a concussion. big question is an obvious one. is it time for baseball to enact new safety measures? cnn's rachel nichols joining us now. thanks for coming to "new day." appreciate it, rachel. >> it's great to be here. >> tough one. we've heard it before. this one a dramatic example. what does it mean? >> not so great to be at the ballpark over the weekend. fans in the stands, they heard that great crack that normally signifies a home run only that's not what iá was. it was the sound of a baseball going off of alex cobb's skull.
take a look. not an easy thing to be part of. it is one of the most disturbing sights in baseball. >> oh! >> reporter: a pitcher, defenseless, getting hit in the head by a ball traveling more than 100 miles an hour and reaching the mound in about a dpthird of a second. tampa bay pitcher alex cobb tweeted that he woke up with, quote, only a minor headache the day after being hit by a line drive, but he's hardly the only victim. just last month, j.a. happ had to be removed from the field, blood pouring from his ear. a year before, brando' mccarthy had to have major brain surgery. he's still struggling with procedures. >> when you see line drives go >> reporter: and it's not just major leaguers. gunnar sandberg was 18 years old
when a ball struck him. gunnar's family would like to d8pitcher's helmets like this prototype. >> i think it would give everyone who wears it confidence out on the field. >> reporter: but while major league baseball officials have studied several possibilities, they know that helmets only cover 40% of a player's head. cobb was hit below the cap line. anything more protective, like a hockey goalie mask, is considered too bulky for a player to wear and still pitch properly. >> whoever comes up with a solution for this, they're never going to have to work again in their life and probably generations of their family won't have to work. >> it seems obvious, right? >> major league pitchers, i've talked to plenty of them. they've wondered how long is it going to be, unfortunately, until someone dies on the field? is that what it's going to take? is they had a batter struck by a pitch who died on the field in 1920, cleveland indians batter. they didn't require batting helmets until 1970, took 50
years. even that sadly might not make a difference. >> what is the balance, though? this may be an obvious question. why not, even if it's just 40% coverage of the head, why not wear some kind of pitching helmet? >> pitchers say that maybe it's uncomfortable. it's not what they're used to. usually big equipment changes like that, they try to get in at the little league level so kids grow up using it. you saw the kid who was 16 years old. he had to have brain surgery where they removed part of his skull. if you're a parent and you have a kid who's on the field and vulnerable. there's no padding. there's no nothing. i think you want to look into this and find out whether your kid should be wea)ing something like this. >> pro level is one thipg. they're big boys. they get to make their own decisions. the kids especially, in a way baseball is even behind football in terms of the didialogue. hopefully, this motivates it. here's to alex cobb and his family. good luck with the recovery. appreciate it. coming up on "new day," a texas mom fights off a carjacker. when i say fights off, i mean,

that orc poll out this morning we were talking about shows a majority of americans support government surveillance of phone records. 51% say it's right for the government to track americans' phone calls. 48% say it's wrong. cnn's dana bash is live on capitol hill with more on this. our chief congressional correspondent. welcome to "new day" what else can you tell me? what is the latest on capitol hill to find out about these nra surveillance leaks? >> there could be news today that intelligence agencies could be releasing declassified information on the terror plots that they say have been thwarted because of these sweeping surveillance programs. now, we heard from opponents of these programs that have been briefed with the classified information. they're just not as productive and as positive as people have said. and that these terror plots could have been thwarted in other ways.
supporters say thpá's simply not true that gathering this data, especially phone records has been incredibly helpful and they hope that tangible information that they see, really, info)mation on how they were made safer to help them digest this idea of having their phone data collected in such a big way. the problem, kate, it's unclep) how much is actually going to be put forward because we are told there is a vigorous debate inside the intelligence community what is declassify. a lot of screamish iis isish an sources and methods in the intelligence community. we'll see what they put forward. >> we'll be tracking that. that's absolutely for sure. dana hill on capitol hill, that's for sure. many a other big stories coming out of washington today. let's talk about them all with congressman eric cantor. the house majority leader and republican congressman from virginia. congressman, welcome to "new day." >> good morning.
congratulations on "the new day." >> i want to get to the poll numbers. new poll numbers out saying many things. couple important points, the president's approval rating has slipped by eight points in just one month. but here's a really interesting point that got my attention. this poll also asked, do you trust and is the president, is the president trustworthy and is he honest? people's belief in that dropped are you surprised that the president's trustworthy rating has take aen a hit? >> well, certainly, i would think it's troubling for the president in the fact that half the american people now don't think the president is trustworthy and honest. and what they're witnessing is a u(árr'gton and a government that has abused its power. and, frankly, has lost focus on the issue that most americans care about which is getting people back to work. that's why we as house republicans are very focused on trying to restore the faith in our government and the trust that people should have in that
government, as well as their faith in the economy. >> congressman, how do you separate when you talk about all the scandals coming out of washington. how do you try to separate congress and the republican house from these scandals, as well. how do you separate yourself from the trust deficit that we're seeing the president has. >> clqp)ly, congress' role is oversight and we're engaged in a very rigorous oversight. many of these agencies that have committed this violation of trust in the american peoplq as the irs issues, in particular, i think raise big concerns. we've got both chairman camp on the ways and meanj committee, as well as chairman issa interviewing the necessary people and reviewing the documents to understand exactly what was going on. as you know, there was news out this morning which indicated the kind of targeting of conservative groups was not just
taking place or was not just made aware and people in cincinnati. it actually was communicated back to washington, which, again, i think, underscores the importance of investigations and hearings. we have to get ño the bottom of this. the facts will lead us to the truth and hopefully all of that will restore people's faith in government. )ight now we have a lot to work to do as this administration abused its power and violated the trust of the people. >> let me ask you about the nsa leaks. who know what when. there is talk from your colleagues about declassifying some of this information to show to the american people. what did you know about the program before it leaked? >> well, these were programs that were put into law after 9/11. àas we knew and saw that day, to think the unthinkable. these programs have assisted
lawmakers in going after terrorists. but, again, i think it's important that the american people can see that we put a priority on national security, but, equally, a priority on civil liberties. that's what makes america who we are and i think the discussion that will unfold through the committee process and the oversight hearings are going to be able to demonstrate that. these programs, hopefully, will be proven to strike that balance that's so necessary in our country. >> congressman, you're talking about priorities and that's an issue facing congress every day because you have kind of conflicting priorities on what you fund and what you do not fund. you're pushing the kids' first act. this is basically, you want to fund research for pediatric disorders and how you want to do that. you want to pay for eliminating funds. d8see private money kind of tak out of the political process, why is that a good way, why is that the good route to go, even
though, obviously, funding >> it doesn't seem the president has put forward his best, you know, off aer in terms of wanting to come to an agreement with house republicans who for years now have insisted that t got to get this debt deficit managed down.this debt we need to bring it to balance in ten years. but it also means we have to set our priorities. americans, as well as conservatives and liberals and democrats and i think all of us can agree that research and science has, in fact, a&lowed america to lead with innovation. certainly if we put our priority on health care research, pediatrics, in particular, we can help kids. we can help cure disease, which also will lower costs. and i tell you, kate, i have a
constituent. her name is katie and she is 12 years old. she was diagnosed with a brain tumor when she was 1-year-old. she is struggling back and forth to st. jude and other hospitals and is doing quite well. but has a condition as a child, as a 12-year-old that, frankly, lot of research around it. and, so, if we can help people and kids like katie, we can, obviously, put them and their families at ease and cure their disease and back on track to a healthy life and also try to deal with some of the $ealth care costs that continue to spiral out of control here in washington. >> a lot on your plate and a busy session heading into the race into the july 4th recess. eric cantor, thank you for your time this morning, sir. >> thank you. clearly a very busy morning. let's get to michaela for the other big stories developing.

i had $20 in my account. i have to figure out how to get it or my kids would get hurt. she ignored his demand to make a curve. >> i thought if i swerve, he's not wearing a seatbelt. she says she then pushed him to the passenger seat and punched d8him in the face and then she made some demand of her own. >> i told him to get out of my car and he said fine and he started running. the next thing i thought, if he gets away, he can do this to someone else. he kind of zagged and i turned intending to clip him in the side or something to get him to stop and i ended up actually running completely over him. >> reporter: martinez was airlifted to the hospital for treatment. baker says she's no hero. she said she did what she needed to do to protect her family.
she has the scars áo prove it. >> that's all i was thinking, get him away from my kids. >> she didn't want him out there doing that to somebody else. >> just amazing. love of the mother. in times of crisis you see it come up again and again. >> don't you think the police will also say, don't do that. it seems like that is a dangerous thing to do. >> it is (sqp)ly a crime of passion when she reacted so quickly as a mother could. >> it gets a little tricky. are you allowed to run him over? one of the things we love about this story, it's good news. we're saying the news is so dark and that's all you peop&e talk about is the bad news. guess what, we get green with you. tell you about the good news out there. stories about people doing the right thing every chance. a heartwarming story out of california about a little boy beating cancer. after going through treatment, showing signs of radiation

nick valencia has the latest >> reporter: hundreds scoured in ohio river bank looking for a missing toddler. they looked through streets and garbage cans to find 18-month-old. her mother, angela, is in jail. charged with child endangerment after her daughter disappeared. the search has been gor'g on for two weeks. >> the baby was injured at one point. she was aware of it and did not seek medical attention for the baby. >> i am not going to say she was directly responsible for anything, but my daughter was in her care at the time this happened and the police are handling it the way they feel they need to. >> reporter: in a missing baby case in unica, new york, because the father waited two weeks before reporting him missing. >> if you know where he is or if he is alive or dead, please, please, call the unica police. >> reporter: the father, javon
said he left his 9-month-old on the front porch after locking he said he walked to the back of the house to find a way in and by the time he got back, little levon was gone. he didn't tell anybody for two weeks. >> the father asked for an attorney and no longer wanted to speak to us. so, at this point, we've had no communication with the father at a this point. >> reporter: neighbors are troubled. >> i'm &ike petrified now because my baby. >> in the casq of both missing children, police are lacking solid leads and they hope that somebody comes forward with info)mation that will lead to a break in the cases. nick valencia, cnn, atlanta. >> our thanks to nick. let's start with what matters most. if you're from unica or toledo. take a look at the pictures. elena 18 months old orange shorts with flowers p'd two feet
tall, brown hair p'd blue eyes. levon seeing wearing nothing but a diaper. if you have information about these missing children, please contact the center for missing and exploited children at 1-800-the-lost. let's bring in hln nancy grace following both cases and joining me from atlanta. welcome to "new day" and thp'k you for being here with us, first of all. >> thank you, thank you for inviting me. good morning. >> good morning. let's start with elena. very curious that starts as a little bit of a custody dispute. the father comes to get the baby and the mother doesn't want to give her up and she goes back and gets the baby and she later tells police the baby was hurt and didn't get her care. that's why she's in jail on bond and future charges maybe. what do you see here? >> well, number one, i have here in my hand the affidavit from
police who have arrested the mother on child endangerment. and what we learned from that, pie careful reading of what police say is that the mother says that the child, her little baby just 18 months old, elena, was "hurt." and she didn't take her for medical treatment. you know what, i'm #rankly disgusted with the. i talked to the chief of police and the paternal grandfather and they told me this is how it went down. the father, the bio dad comes over to pick up the baby, elena. nobody will give him the baby. they screw around on the front porch for like two hours. they hear the mother inside. she then comes out and says, oh, the baby's gone. okay. that is a lie. now, obviously, i am not a lie detector. but that's a lie. i also know that a van, a gmc
sufs safari has been searched. now, why would they be searching a van if the baby was hurt inside the home and why didn't they take the baby to the hospital? last night john david told ñe he had a stomach ache and my mother had to stop me from taking him to the emergency room. this morning he's fine. the most important thing, thq mom is behind bars on this technical charge. she's going to crack and then we're going to hear the truth. >> we also understand, nancy, help me with this. that the discussion that the mother had with the police also led to searching the specific part of toledo and there were questions about the ex-boyfriend and others involved. a lot of speculation. what do we know about where the investigation is leading at this time? >> well, i think that áhere is a parallel investigation going on, that means they're looking for a live child and a dead child.
typically when children are killed following an abduction, they are killed within the first three hours, according to statistics. i want the baby it be alive. dead. i'd also like to know, where is the boyfriend? why isn't he front and center out there begging for help? mom's behind bars, but where is the boyfriend? i only hear from the natural father's family. nothing from the boyfriend who is apparently there when the baby was "hurt." he should be out scouring the streets and bodies of water looking for this child. where is he? >> let me take your attention quickly levon. >> levon. >> i'm sorry, levon. we're told two weeks before he what do you make of it? >> well, this is what we know. at about 11:30 that night. mom is in rehab. number one. that's the jumping off point.
mommy's in rehab. not judging. dad says the boy, the baby boy, 9 months old can't sleep. he takes the boy for a walk around the neighborhood. did anybody ever hear of rocking them? so he goes for a walk, gets home and he's locked himself out. leaves the baby and nothi'g but a diaper on the front porch and climbs through a back window and comes out and the baby's gone, again. to me, both the stories stink and i also don't see the father anywhere looking for the baby. he has not taken part in the searches and, not only that, he waited two weeks and then his mother called the police. "é(hone call to police. it's like these people treat these babies like their pets. >> yet, still no charges in that case. u'like with elena where the mother is right now in custody. >> you know what, these things take time and in some of these jurisdictions, they have never prosecuted a murder case without
a body. so, that's what they're waiting on. but, you know what, i don't think thq-q going to have to wait too long in the first case can baby elena and mother behind pbars. she's not going to take that kindly and she's going to crack and blurt out what happened. then they'll find out the truth and with the other one, it may take a little bit longer. >> thank you for coming on "new day." look forward to having you back. appreciate it, my friend. >> thank you, friend. coming up on "new day," our first day on air here. feels good. doesn't mean that we haven't been spendajt any time together. let me tell you that. look at michaela. also, there it is. that's the part i was waiting for. all right, then, how about this. watch out for that deer. john berman will be here to tell us what he learned on the internet. now, who's laughing the guy getting the beat down or the deer? >> he keeps the shot pretty steady given the fact they were
