6:00 am
all day. >> can you sing it out for us. ♪ ♪ and guide her clsh reporter: breaking news overseas. the death toll is climbing in baghdad after a bombing at the hands of isis, killing 142, many of them children. a deadly reminder isis can apparently strike at will. i'm gregg jarrod in for bill on "america's newsroom." reporter: it was one of the worst attacks baghdad has seen
6:01 am
in a year. john huddy is live in our middle east bureau. what more do we know about this attack? >> the death toll continues to climb. and we are learning more details about how this cause carried out. the associated press is reporting the death toll is at 149. we have seen death tolls of 15. bodies are still being pulled from the rubble and some are beyond recognition so dna testing is being done. the attack happened around midnight in a shopping district in baghdad when iraqi officials say a truck, it may have been a fridge curator type of storage
6:02 am
truck that rammed into a building that housed a shopping center and various restaurants. it was one of the worst attacks since 2007. as gregg was mentioning, isis claimed responsibility. it's not the first attack isis has threatened to increase its attacks during ramadan. reporter: so many innocent people were killed, but why in this particular area? reporter: it's a busy shopping district, and it's predominantly shiia and has a high christian population. isis is a sunni muslim group. so they target shiia neighborhoods and tarrin -- andt
6:03 am
christians as well. people were out eating after fasting all day. this happened around midnight and a lot of people were out on the streets. isis threatened to carry out more attacks towards the end of ramadan. reporter: john huddy, thank you. we appreciate it. gregg: a outside bomber detonating an explosive vest early this morning in the western city of jeddah near a hospital. and embassy. it's unclear if the u.s. site
6:04 am
was the target of that attack. but it come just days before the end of the islamic holy month of ramadan. reporter: hillary clinton speaking out about her highly anticipated interview with the f.b.i. she says she has been eager to talk to the f.b.i. and is pleased to bring her interview to a conclusion. >> we have seen the evidence and facts that emails have come out. this is something she voluntarily did that last summer she wanted to do. so i think this is something that's routine. we'll be seeing the investigation closing up. reporter: katie, thanks for being with us. you had a chance to listen to
6:05 am
senator booker calling this just routine. this is the democratic nominee for the presidency. is there anything routine about her speaking to the f.b.i. two weeks before the convention? >> absolutely not. despite the clinton campaign calling this a security review, this is in fact a criminal investigation. for hillary clinton now to come out and say she volunteered for this, she is happy to do this. this wasn't a voluntary thing for her. she didn't have a choice whether she had to sit down with the f.b.i. or not. she refused to participate in the investigation of her private email server. hillary clinton has been anything but transparent. also when the scandal broke a
6:06 am
year ago hillary said she never sent or received classified information on her server, and that story changed to i never sent or received marked classified information. i'll bet the f.b.i. had some questions about why her tory changed. reporter: reince priebus from the rnc said hillary clinton has just taken the step of being the first main candidate for the presidency to be interviewed by the f.b.i. as part of a criminal investigation surrounding her reckless conduct. has the situation just opened the door for the other side, for republicans, for donald trump to talk about her trustworthiness? >> sure. i think that brings up the point
6:07 am
that she shouldn't get pegs treatment. the director of the f.b.i. james comey has done investigations of the clintons before, and he has said repeatedly that there will be no political influence in term how this case comes down. i think this presents two problems for hillary clinton. if she isn't indicted it create a bigger trust problem with the secret meeting between loretta lynch and bill clinton. she'll be the on nominee for the presidency to be indicted, if she is. as a number of legal scholars have mentioned, there have been many people who have been charged with a lot for far less than what hillary clinton has done in terms of what we already
6:08 am
know. gregg: another name tossed up to the mix of who might be donald trump's running-mate. peter doocy live in washington. how well did the trump meeting with governor pence go? pair threatically it's always a good sign when the big guy asks you to play a round of golf after you meet with him. reporter: afterward the governor said quote what i could tell you was, this was very enjoyable personal time between two families, and we got to know each other a lot better. that came as a another member of the establishment seemed to warm to trump.
6:09 am
we aren't doing enough to take the fight to the islamic state and we are living with the consequences of it now. we have to get tougher when it comes to our intelligence and law enforcement practices. >> tomorrow he start to swing through some battlegrounds beginning with north carolina. gregg: i want to ask you about the uproar about the tweet featuring the star of david. >> there was controversy or whether this tweet using the star of david to attack hillary clinton. trump's former campaign manager said truck critic were pay off. >> sheriff's departments use it

6:17 am
executive experience. if you were to say all those things and check all the boxes, that's mike pence. i was part of an effort to draft him into the 2012 race and he served in the u.s. house with my dad. gregg: he's got bad ratings. >> mike pence has deep roots in the conservative movement. he used to run a conservative think tank in indiana. he has been governor of indiana for a period of time. i think he has what it takes for trump to have a legitimate presidential candidate and gives him something i think mike pence is a great communicator as well. >> well, you know, newt gingrich has a huge fan in the current vice president joe biden. take a listen to this, then i'll get your reaction. >> the job is so big, and it's
6:18 am
gone the so broad and the world has changed so drastically, you need someone who is value added. >> newt and i disagreed. he's one of the brightest guys i know. donald, i want to make it clear, i'm not endorsing him. i'm saying he's bright as hell. gregg: joe biden said he would be fine with newt gingrich replace him as vice president. >> i think they were all be super great tore democrats come ask november. he has a list of people who were always picked last in gym class. these are a bunch of failed candidates for president. they are to most people have never heard of. there are people that disagree with him on major issues.
6:19 am
gregg: talk a little more about joni ernst. there is no question donald trump has a problem with the polling data with women voters. also there are a lot of folks in the military who are quite sceptical of a president donald trump as commander-in-chief. she is a veteran and distinguished one. >> she has a strong appeal in regards to the female vote, veterans vote, but she is a appreciateman senator. if you were to look for potential female vice presidential candidate, i'm surprised someone like nikki haley or someone like that has not made the short list. if he's looking for a female vice presidential candidate there might be stronger options than joni, not to say she's not
6:20 am
doing a great job in the senate right now. >> i suspect that there are a lot of the people that get picked last in gym class all the time. when you look sat joni ernst in particular, we are head towards a ticket that has the least experience in modern history of any ticket. i don't think she would even take it. if you are a republican with a bright political future like she might be, why tie yourself to this guy. gregg: a lot of people say that but then they jump fat it. >> now i can be a vp pick. gregg: happy ins even day. poll there are nearly a year after president obama says isis

6:32 am
molly: istanbul, bangladesh, and now baghdad. isis carrying out three terror attacks, showing it remains an
6:33 am
enemy, despite the loss fallujah. >> there is reason for more concern than director brennan last week listed all the reasons why isis is still virulent. it's have much losing territory and at the same time expanding its global presence. when people are self-radicalized as we have seen in the youth and don't share their plotting with others it's tough to stop. molly: retired commander chuck nash. '. following the retaking of fallujah be people believe this is a revenge attack. if they lose territory do they go back to tore guerrilla root,
6:34 am
the terror incidents? >> that's how they started. al qaeda in iraq which morphed into isis. what you have got is this virulent side of the sunni part of the religion has been fighting the shiia, and he seasonally trying to stir up and create a civil war inside of iraq which we have come right up to the brink to every times. isis, they have got. >> three-fold effort with these strikes. demonstrate to the population that the government is unable to shield the population from isis to kill as many shiite as they can, again, trying to foment that civil war to get the mostly shiia military and security forces so even ranged that they will continue their pattern of atrocities against the liberated
6:35 am
sunnis. three, to counter the headlines they are losing. they want to appeal to the sicko losers thinking they are going to be jihadis and go out there and d do it. >> there is a perception isis is escalating with these most recent attacks. do you get that sense as well? >> absolutely. this is part of -- when they went into liberate fallujah what they found were rooms where the floor was littered with facing hair. thee shaved off all their beards and melded into the crowd and disappeared. those people will wind up reconstituting somewhere when they repatriate to their home countries. you have people worldwide who are looking to make a name for themselves by tying themselves
6:36 am
to that black flag of isis. they are demonstrating what can be done with these open venues and airports. there are a lot of disturbed people out there, and this mess and is reaching their little brains. >> would donald trump or hillary clinton be better in handling these issues? >> i don't either one of them have displayed what i think is the necessary strategy and outlook that planning and reliance on our military leaders that will be necessary to succeed. >> he seems so disenheartenned, do you agree with senator mccain? >> senator mccain's position from the beginning is to take an offensive role to support the moderate syrians break away from the army that were anti-assad.
6:37 am
but the situation evolved so quickly into a mayor mash of groups, and we had nobody on the ground to sort out the wheat from the chaff. it got to be sufficient a mess. eventual hi we have got to get the people in the remember to fight this fight. we can't fight their war. they have to fight their war. if they want to live with a group of throat-slitting people who kill their children, that's up to them. the idea of putting u.s. troops on the ground is a non-starter. molly: thank you for your analysis. gregg: it was a big night for main league baseball in a big way.
6:38 am
fort bragg hosting the miami marlins. huge crowds on hand there. packed full with servicemen and women who were completely humbled by the opportunity to catch a big lead game in their backyard. >> to cop out here and play, interact with soldiers, it does not get any better than this. gregg: it was a scoreless game until the inning. the braves beat the martins 5-2. we lost the gape with you bit an unbelievable honor and privilege to be part of this day. i think the fans all had a great time. there was a lot of energy out there.

we didn't accomplish exact -- i think we accomplished what major league baseball wanted it to. gregg: these are some of the best trained troops in all the world at forward brag. world -- at fort bragg. it would be great if some of our other professional sport went to some of our military bases. molly: a fabulous job. gregg: those guys are great. molly: new warning signs are up at disney world about the presence of alligators as we learn more about that deadly attack last month that claimed the life of a 2-year-old boy. gregg: health officials have been sounding the alarm about the zika virus. but it doesn't seem people are

6:46 am
affected, that zika could possibly have. >> it's interesting you bring that up. with ebola. people got distracted by that. they got panicked and worried. because we didn't see the same scale of threat. people are concerned about zika afterwards. but there are huge differences between the two. ebola was a lethal virus. if you got infected with ebola, you got different times of care that could keep you alive. but with zika we don't have a treatment, we don't have a virus. even if you find out when you are pregnant that you test positive for zika or the fetus may be infected. there is nothing we can do. we just wait and watch and monitor. even then, put that aside. then you have the children that are actually born.
6:47 am
not just in the u.s., but brazil, the younger population, that can devastate the entire economy, the fabric of the country. poll will be this will take money for the states to get out there and start killing mosquitoes now. >> there are genetically engineered mosquitoes that might be able to fight the mosquitoes. and there is bacteria that can infect zika. we tried to stop mosquitoes in the past for den ga denday -- fe denghai virus. the cdc issued a travel warning for the caribbeanian and south american countries. people should check that website. if they can avoid travel to

best defense of hillary clinton. gregg: right. >> common theme both clinton herself as well as surrogates she needs to earn the voters trust. she has been in the public eye for more than a quarter century. what else do we know about her? i have hard time thinking what anything she can do at this point to earn our trust. gregg: the other part of this, even if she isn't criminally charged with indocument, i wonder how damaging that will be, because a great many folks will say, you know what, the fix was in from the beginning. donald trump is certainly going to say that. the private secret meeting with bill clinton for half an hour with the attorney general, only aggravates that impression. >> right. and the attorney general herself admitted as much. so this is, the obama administration trying to preserve its legacy. hillary clinton is embodiment of the obama legacy. hence he needs to protect himself by not prosecuting her. also very disconcerting as
7:08 am
american, hillary clinton as secretary of state was embodiment of foreign policy and while in the position as secretary of state she accepted foreign donations from governments that had no respect for human rights or no respect for women's rights. that is complete hypocrisy. it was like the secretary of state office was for sale to the highest donor. gregg: that is also part of the fbi investigation. she grant ad very quick interview with msnbc on the very day she spent 3 1/2 hours with the fbi answering questions. here's what she said in defense of the question, didn't you have classified documents on your unauthorizedded server? she said, i never received or sent any email that was marked classified. and when it was mark classifieded it was done retroactively. that is blatantly false, isn't it? first of all not all classified emails were retroactively marked. some were not and second of all how they're marked is
7:09 am
irrelevant. she was given a tutorial the first day she took office that taught her it doesn't have to be marked to be classified and here is how you know if it is classified. so isn't her defense no defense at all? >> you're absolutely right and this is, you know, she likes to say she is woman of substance and woman of policy, but this is really the focus of the campaign at this point. it is hard for her to get away from the cloud of suspicion. we heard from the state department, they're deciding to refuse to release emails under foia. we as journalists respect the freedom of information act. state department will not release emails until october 2018, well after the election. gregg: one of the things that we're not going to see but we've heard about, one of the classified emails that was on her server were u.s. spy satellite images of north korea's nukes. now, hillary clinton's argument seems to be well, if it wasn't marked i wouldn't know that is classified.
7:10 am
isn't that clearly and obviously classified? if she says she didn't recognize a document for what it wasn't she arguing her own incompetence? >> comes down to a question of judgment. do we question someone or do we trust someone who will put the sensitive information in a personal server? it really comes down to control, it comes down to the fact that she is not transparent person and i think that is what voters -- gregg: quick question. joe biden repeated what president obama said, gee, it wasn't intentional. one of the statutes is it doesn't have to be intentional. negligence is good enough. >> right. gregg: and president obama actually described hillary clinton's actions as reckless, which is the equivalence of negligence. didn't he essentially indict her by using that term? >> well, he did at that point but he is sipping a different playbook at this point. as i said he has to preserve his own legacy. she was his secretary of state after all. gregg: kerry, thanks. >> thank you, gregg. happy 4th.

that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. see if you're eligible for 12 months free at words you don't often hear. words we at panera live by. because clean food is food as it should be. with no artificial flavors, preservatives, sweeteners, and no colors from artificial sources. we think clean food tastes better, feels better, does better. 100% of our food will be clean by year's end. every bite will be food as it should be. ♪

small plane crash in november of 2013. molly: senator bernie sanders showing no signs of slowing down as the democratic national convention gets a little closer here. sanders saying over the weekend while the democratic party platform made major accomplishments there is more to be done. the senator writing, we need to have very clear language that raises the minimum wage to $15 an hour, insured the promised pensions of millions of americans will not be cut, establish as tax on carbon and create as ban on fracking. let's bring in the dineen borelli, chief political correspondent for conservative review and fox news contributor, cole graham, a democratic strategist. thanks for being here this holiday weekend. we appreciate it. >> good morn. molly: let's take off from what we heard from senator sanders. he is determined to have a voice at convention. seems like beyond. dineen, is that a problem for the democrats? is that a problem for hillary clinton. >> hillary has a lot of problems
7:17 am
going on here, molly, but when you look at the current proposal for the democrats platform, it looks like the socialist manifesto. they want to go after the earnings and profits in pharmaceutical industry. they want to silence political free speech with the citizens for united ruling. and then also they're calling for an expansion in social security. so bernie sanders ideas and suggestions would take the party even further left because he wants to implement an actual flat-out ban on hydraulic furring. this technology has provided wealth of profits and jobs for our country. we are able to produce more oil and gas than any other country in the world. and it is also keeping our energy prices low. so these are policies that really would be harmful for our country. molly: nicole, what do you think? could his policies, be harmful?
7:18 am
is this something the democrats be concerned about? he is no shrinking violet you have to say. >> first of all ask them relatively educated voter about the 2008 to 2012 platform they voted on personality, party, then platform. i think right now we are focusing on platform and impact but i don't really know what the actual impact will be in november. however i do think that senator sanders has had a large influence on the platform and you know, as molly said, fracking, he wants an outright ban on it, but i live in florida, and the coast of florida, july 4th was closed base of blue-green algae. fracking is a huge issue in florida. i don't think people realize the actual impact it has until it is in their backyard. so i'm not really sure that is the most socialist part of the proposed platform under bernie sanders. and i don't really think that that would be the biggest issue if the platform was to include that.

molly: well, shifting now to the veepstakes, looking at democratic side of things, senator cory booker of new jersey was asked about the possibility if he could be the vp. take a listen to what he had to say on cnn. >> you should talk to the hillary clinton campaign. i do know on the democratic side there are fabulous candidates. >> that is not a no, sir. that is not. >> that is exactly is. if you have a question like that, please direct lit to the clinton camp. molly: what do you think, dineen? the word games are on. the thought that a possibility of cory booker could be on that list. >> well sure, you have to remember that black voters were primary responsible for president obama being elected twice. and so with cory booker, listen, hillary clinton needs the black vote. can't do it on her own, especially by herself, especially with the stats earlier, 66% of the americans don't trust her and 58% think she is corrupt.
7:20 am
she would clearly need black voter support to get her over that line. molly: nicole, quickly we want to bring you in as well. your thoughts on senator booker and she was on the campaign trail with senator elizabeth warren. >> although cory booker is one of the top candidates he himself, although he is excellent candidate has some corruption and possible scandals, specifically his focus on charter schools and i think elizabeth warren, although she would be a dream vice president candidate i'm not really sure besides invigorating maybe some bernie sanders what she would bring. she is from massachusetts, already liberal state. i actually think that you know the ohio senator, he would probably be the best bet. i'm sure, if you asked a very prominent ohioan lebron james.

7:32 am
horizontal drilling, right? >> all of it. the theme of the book and it is directly related to what you're talking about, is, you know, because of the new shale oil and gas revolution we have more oil and gas and coal than any other country in the world. every president, gregg, since, you go back to richard nixon, said we'll make america energy independent. we now have the capability of doing that within the next five years. yes, you're right, step one is, let's start allowing drilling on federal lands. i'm not talking about on environmentally sensitive lands but over a third of the land in the united states is owned by the federal government. we should be using that land for coal development and oil and natural gas. we could double our output if we do that. gregg: congress ordered the epa to examine any environmental harm caused by fracking. they did an exhaustive study. i read the summary of it. it said there is no evidence of environmental harm that they concluded it is safe.
7:33 am
i want to go to point number two. let's put it up on the screen. build a national network of pipelines across the country by allowing the permitting for projects like keystone xl and many others. and by the way, steve, the government study of environmental harm concluded that building the xl pipeline would be less polluting than not building it. >> yeah. there is no question because think about this, greg. what is safer way to transport oil and gas? through pipelines or through trucks and rail you see all the time where you have, maybe a rail, you know, a railroad derails and you get spillage of the oil and gas. much cheaper and much more environmentally friendly to do it with pipelines. by the way everyone knows about the keystone pipeline. that is no-brainer. next president should do that in first 100 days of getting that thing built. not just keystone. we need a national network of
7:34 am
pipelines like we have with the interstate highway system to get oil and gas from places like north dakota, and heart of texas all over. i'm in rhode island. we don't have pipelines to get the oil and gas from texas to rhode island. therefore we have to depend on foreign oil and natural gas because we don't have the ways to get it to the markets we need. gregg: once it gets to the destination, there is a deficiency there which is your point number three. we need to build refineries and liquified natural gas terminals in the united states, right? >> yeah. so natural gas is a wonder fuel. it is abundant. it is made in america and it is clean-burning and it is cheap. so everybody should be in favor of natural gas. by the way we get natural gas from fracking. more fracking we do the less greenhouse gases we emit into the environment. what we definitely need ways to refine it. we also need, if we're going to export it, that is part of what we're talking about in the book, we should be exporting our natural gas.
7:35 am
we have the cheapest and cleanest natural gas in the world. but to do that we need what is called liquified natural gas terminals so it can be transported all over the world. think about this, if we could transport it to europe, europe would not be so dependent on russia to get their natural gas. gregg: quickly, number four, put it up on the screen, stop the war on coal. environmentalists have tried to shut down coal production. steve, is coal, in your judgment, can it be an is it being produced cleanly? >> yeah. sure is. if you look at emissions from coal plants in terms of things that are real pollutants, things like lead and carbon monoxide and sulfur, those emissions are down 50, 60, 70, some cases 80%. clean coal is year. we have 500 years worth of coal in the country. we are truly the saudi arabia of coal. we should using all the coal resources. hillary clinton by the way wants to adopt the obama agenda of shutting down the coal industry

7:45 am
as i have looked at it, only non-indigenous animals do the property owner have obligation to protect against as well as those the property owner harbors or captures. but, that does not prevent liability necessarily where the attack is foreseeable. gregg: yeah. >> this will be a really fact-intensive inquiry, where what diddies any know. gregg: sue ann, isn't this foreseeable? they had been warned, disney officials that alligators were causing problems, that people actually were feeding alligators and alligators were getting aggressive, and they knew of prior attacks and yet they failed to protect the patrons, doesn't that constitute negligence? >> absolutely. i think if, to the extent that disney was aware and had previous incidents they were aware of what was happening, that the alligators were
7:46 am
becoming an issue but quite frankly the alligators are in their natural habitat. so the issue then becomes how do you protect against that while still allowing people to come to the happiest place on earth? i think unfortunately this tragedy occurred but i don't think the little boy is going to die in vain. i think the positive side is that, you know, unfortunately he lost his life but the case has brought awareness to the alligator issue. that's the biggest thing that can be done to really protect the public is awareness. now everybody knows, people will be on guard. people will be aware when they're in disney, they will know, hey, listen, be careful at night. be careful near waterways. gregg: richard, i got to tell you, it just seems like a bad idea ever to place people very close to alligators. it seems like per se negligence. you know, don't they need to actually get rid of those very inviting white sand beaches that lead down to to the
