12:00 pm
old they would push each other around? >> dana: yes. >> maybe that's the secret. >> dana: that's for joining us. i'll see you on "the five". here's trace. >> trace: we're following breaking news. explosive packages are in london at the train stations. we're also watching capitol hill where two house democrats are feeling the heat. one for comments she made, the other for her campaign cash, a live report ahead. we're learning more about the victims of the nation's deadliest tornado in years including seven members of one family. and the google pay gap. why the tech giant is giving out millions in raises. i'm trace gallagher in for shep. the news starts now.
12:01 pm
our reporting begins in washington. house democrats are finalizing a resolution to condemn anti-semitism by freshman democrat ilhan omar from minnesota. some republicans say may call for her to lose her seat on the foreign affairs committee. the house set to vote tomorrow on the democrat's resolution. the draft does not mention her by name but makes sure that her comments cross the line especially last week when she said israel's supporters are pushing for allegiance to a foreign country. we're stalled staffers for nancy pelosi and steny hoyer and jewish leaders worked on the resolution. omar has been in office two months and this will be the second action against her. she says he's talking about
12:02 pm
policy, not people and is herself the victim of anti-muslim attacks. mike emanuel reporting live on capitol hill. mike? >> trace, good afternoon. the resolution does not mentioned congressman omar by name and some think it should. the draft obtained by numbers news says -- >> a leading democrat today says words matter. >> what i know is i've seen it too many places. we have racism in this country. why is it so politically acceptable to have all of this kind of hatred against so many people? i want to fight back against every ounce of hatred i'm seeing. >> some republicans say they should remove congresswoman omar
12:03 pm
from the house foreign affairs committee. >> why would you have her on a committee that important to our foreign policy if she has those anti-semitic beliefs unless you're willing to tolerate it. she should be removed immediately. >> this has exposed friction with house democrats. democrats don't care for the high profile freshmen making waves, trace. >> trace: another freshman democrat alexandria ocasio-cortez also facing accusations. >> that's right. there's an accusation that her chief of staff funneled $1 million of contributions to political action committees to private accounts. we caught up with alexandria ocasio-cortez earlier today. >> there's no violation. >> you think that's the sign of you taking dark money? >> no, no. >> the complaint notes the money
12:04 pm
transfers were for strategic consulting. that raised eyebrowser. her supporters say it was legitimate. >> trace: let's get more on congresswoman's omar's comments and tomorrow's vote. we have more on this reporting from capitol hill. heather, welcome. even if they don't name ilhan omar this legislation, it's a high rebuke. >> this is the second time that omar has been rebuked in a matter of weeks. i can't think of another time -- i've been on the hill several years -- that we've seen leadership go after a member of their own party, particularly a freshman, so publicly like this. >> trace: yeah, she's apologized a couple times. this time she seems to be standing her grand more. she came out saying it's
12:05 pm
problematic being told that you're anti-american if you're not pro israel. so this time around, she's getting some support from herb freshmen colleagues and she's going to stand her ground and fight more. >> congress woman omar was in afri africa. she went after a junior jewish democrat that called on omar to apologize and retract her statement. congress woman omar said there's nothing to apologize for, these are my positions. we saw she was packed up by her freshman colleagues, particularly alexandria ocasio-cortez who said on twitter today, you know, there's a double standard here for controversial comments that lawmakers make. why are we going after congress woman omar when yes don't pursue other comments that have been made that can be considered controversial and bigoted? it's interesting to see the divide on the hill between even
12:06 pm
within the democratic caucus with senior lawmakers and the younger progressive freshman that have come on the hill. >> trace: it's a good point. take us forward now. now you have republicans that are willing to offer a censure movement against her and you have jewish organizations that say she should be removed from the house of foreign affairs committee. what happens next to omar? >> a good question. something that democratic leaders have not answered. they've resisted calls to remove her from the committee and they have rebuffed any talk of censuring her on the house floor, which would be the most extreme. we'll see this resolution voted on tomorrow. it's expected to get broad support. like you said, doesn't mention omar by name so we could see her vote for the resolution. but the question is, do democratic leaders including nancy pelosi to take action to remove her. they said they're not going to
12:07 pm
do that but people are watching to see if she apologizes or if she makes any further controversial statement that may warrant further action. >> trace: you mentioned controversial statements. there seems to be a pattern. you go back to 2012 when omar said israel was hypnotized by the world. she asked allah to help the evil doings of those of israel. but democrats are trying to stop this in their tracks. >> you can see senior democratic leaders, several chairman of powerful health committees including one that congress woman omar is on and several jewish members. they're very uncomfortable with her statements that she made recently and in the past. she apologized for the 2012 tweet but some of the stuff she said recently, this falls in the same line. congress woman omar has her defenders like alexandria
12:08 pm
ocasio-cortez who said no, we're not anti-jewish, we're not against israel but we have a right to question u.s. foreign policy and the u.s. stance towards israel that doesn't make us bad people. so there's clearly a generational divide playing out publicly on the hill this week and, you know, the past couple weeks. >> trace: good insight, heather. thanks so much. >> thank you. >> trace: counter terror place are investigating after three explosive devices turned up in london. according to british police, they were small and inside padded yellow mailing bags. investigators say they're treating the incidents as being linked. officials say they found one near city airport, another in the mail room at waterloo station and third at heathrow. they say part of one of them was burned and nobody has been hurt.
12:09 pm
benjamin hall reporting live from london. benjamin? >> certainly this morning there was disruption across london. but nobody was hurt and those sites are open again. counter terrorist police say they're iud's and not terribly so fphisticate sophisticated. they happened at rush hour and all found within hours of each other at three major transportation hubs. waterloo, heathrow and london city airport. police say the devices were in full size envelopes and capable of ignite ago small fire when opened. which they say in the right place could have spread. fortunately the second two envelopes remained unopened. in heathrow, the areas of evacuated after the first package was opened. staff opened it and nobody was
12:10 pm
hurt. the next two were found the next couple hours. as i said, those sites are now open again but being closely monitored. trace? >> trace: benjamin, what are we learning where the packages came from? >> it seems the only evidence that the police have to go on at the moment, or they're disclosing, all three envelopes had irish stamps on them. we're told the irish police were called. a clear connection there. this comes a year as mi 5, the british security service, down graded the threat of a u.k. terrorist attacks by irish dissident republican groups. the security service lowered they assessment from substantial to moderate, which means intelligence officials consider an attack possible but not likely. there's no confirmation this is irish dissidents. there's been tensions over brexit. but at this point, that's as much as people know. certainly for the moment, all eyes are on ireland. the last time there was an
12:11 pm
attack from ireland in 2014, letter bombs were set over. we wait to see if this is something similar. trace? >> benjamin hall, live for us in london. thank you. we have breaking news coming in to "shepard smith reporting." the attorney general of california just said that the officers involved in the see -- stephon clark shooting will not be prosecuted. there was a suspect reported of vandalizing cars and homes. deputies had night scope vision and police officers on the ground. police officers mistook a cell phone for what they thought was a gun. they opened fire and killed clark. this has been causing protests across northern california. the attorney general in california has now said that they will not face charges for the death of stephon clark.
12:12 pm
this clearly will prompt more protests and more activism on this case. we'll have more breaking news as it comes in live to "shepard smith reporting." identifying the victims in alabama. survivors of the deadly tornado outbreak now facing life without their loved ones. >> our son was the reason i lived when i got up. >> trace: the youngest of the victims, six years old. right now there's a search for people still missing. we're live where the twisters hit hardest. the young sisters that survived all alone in a rugged wilderness. they're talking about how they made it and the lessoned learned. >> we're not going to go on a hike until we get a gps tracker. i switched to miralax for my constipation. stimulant laxatives forcefully stimulate the nerves in your colon. miralax works with the water in your
