criminal probe, the fbi investigating now and abc's pierre thomas is in washington with the latest. good morning, pea pierre. >> reporter: today the fbi is launching a team to investigate the irs. and what began as a political scandal has taken a serious turn that could lead irs officials in jail for violating the civil rights of taxpayers. overnight the irs acknowledged some of its actions were inappropriate but said it never intended to hide the issue that some agents were targeting tea party members and other conservative groups for years. that statement is not stopping a widening probe. in a surprise move, attorney general eric holder revealed he's already launched a criminal investigation. >> the fbi is coordinating with the justice department to see if any laws were broken. i think everyone can agree if not criminal, they were certainly outrageous and unacceptable. >> reporter: a criminal probe means irs officials in cincinnati, california and washington, d.c., now face fbi agents showing up at their offices to interrogate them.
e-mails could be subpoenaed. >> that's going to change, i think, probably the day-to-day working of a lot of people at the irs. >> reporter: the new inspector general's report released late tuesday blasts the irs for unfairly targeting conservative groups concerning their tax exempt status. report suggests a lack of oversight at the highest levels calling some employees ignorant of tax laws. overnight president obama said he read the report issuing a statement calling the irs actions intolerable and inexcusable. meantime, on capitol hill, outrage. >> this looks like a blatant abuse of power on the part of the irs and it suggests to me there is a culture of rottenness. >> reporter: but some in the gop don't trust holder to investigate. they want a special counsel to pursue this case, george. >> they are holding those hearings on friday. pierre, thanks. to that developing spy story playing out between the u.s. and russia. as we told you, the u.s.
ambassador called into the russian foreign ministry overnight over claims an american diplomat disguised in a really bad blond wig is actually a spy. abc's martha raddatz has more now from washington. martha, this is a weird one. >> reporter: it sure is, amy. this morning, 29-year-old ryan fogle is on his way back to the u.s., the first american publicly accused of spying in russia in more than a decade. the u.s. says ryan fogle is a diplomat. the russians say the young american is a spy, captured red-handed with a crazy blond wig trying to recruit a russian intelligence officer to work for the u.s. the supposed evidence, not one, but two wigs, three pairs of glasses, ziploc bags filled with wads of cash, a microphone and this letter supposedly intended for the russian intelligence officer which reads in part "dear friend, we are ready to
offer you $100,000 to discuss your experience, expertise and cooperation. we can offer up to 1 million a year for long-term cooperation." but look closer at that evidence. that blond wig, it's raising questions. spycraft seems more maxwell smart than -- >> bond, james bond. >> reporter: peter earnest, a cia officer for 20 years says it's an unspoken rule spies don't get caught with a disguise. >> they don't want to get picked up with spy stuff on them. unless as speculation goes it's a total setup in which case you say let's throw a couple of wigs in there. >> reporter: no secret the u.s. and russia still spy on each other. remember anna chapman, the stunning russian spy part of a sleeper cell? she frequented fashionable bars and restaurants in manhattan. but the russians are now claiming outrage over ryan fogle, a russian official in
this video saying, how could you stab us in the back like this? they couldn't be too outraged because one thing has changed since the cold war, spy or not, ryan fogle was returned to the american embassy within hours after his detention. amy. >> all right, martha raddatz, with the very latest. >> we just do not know this story yet. >> no. >> too bizarre and too obvious, right? >> yeah. >> that's the worst wig in the history of wigs. >> we know that. >> that is conclusive. >> very obvious. >> indeed, how about some other news? we'll begin with this developing story. the military's second high-profile sexual abuse case in just two weeks. a sergeant at ft. hood, texas, has been suspended from his position as leader of a sexual harassment prevention program because he himself is being investigated for abuse of sexual contact. just last week, the assault prevention officer at the air force jeffrey krusinski was gel is ordering all thmilitary'
prevention officers to be retrained. >> a surprising headline impacting the economy after a u.s. budget surplus in april, this year's government deficit is expected to shrink far more quickly than we thought coming in roughly $200 billion lower than expected thanks to spending cuts, tax increases and higher payments from mortgage giants fannie mae and freddie mac. but some do worry this may actually hurt the economy because it may tempt congress to delay a long-term budget deal. and a controversial new recommendation may have you thinking twice the next time you order another drink at dinner. the national transportation safety board is now pushing states to lower the blood alcohol level that qualifies as impaired from 0.08% to 0.05%. that for an average woman means two glasses of wine during an hour instead of three. the restaurant industry opposes the change. it says targeting extreme drinkers would be more effective to reduce crashes.
and a crisis could be brewing in the coffee industry and it could hit you hard in the wallet, as well. a function gus plaguing the coffee crop in central america is expected to reduce production there by some 17% this year. prices already the highest in months could surge as growers brace for $500 million in losses. that qualifies as a national emergency here at "good morning america." and finally, a truly unforgettable prom night for a group of teens in florida. they are enjoying their well-earned hero status after making an unexpected stop on the way to the prom. >> slammed on the brakes. >> all of a sudden we all got pushed out. >> we all began to help. >> reporter: the high school seniors on their way to the prom when their limo driver saw a minivan flip right in front of them. without hesitation in their gowns and tuxedos they rushed to help a mother and her children in a desperate situation. >> i went towards the trunk, opened the trunk up and the first person i saw was the
little kid. >> i saw this little boy coming towards me. i was just asking him basic questions like what's your name? like, are you okay? where is your mom? >> she was saying, oh, where's my baby. i went over grabbed her baby and showed her, look, your baby is fine. >> reporter: the mother, karen exalien, says the only thing she remembers is the teens reaching in, helping her out of that van. she calls them the best-dressed rescue team ever. >> i'm like, are they coming from a wedding? did we just ruin these people's wedding? thank you very much. they really, really did their thing that day. >> one, two, three. hero! >> everyone is okay. as for those kids they've already picked up several awards for their actions and they say they couldn't have lived with themselves had they not rushed in to help. makes you feel good about the future. >> best prom ever. they will never forget that. >> oh, gosh. let's turn now to that latest
on that dramatic revelation from angelina jolie. brad pitt speaking out for the first time as we learn more about jolie's decision to have a double mastectomy. how she managed to keep it secret and the next surgery she needs. abc's paula faris here with all the details. good morning, paula. >> good morning, george. jolie hinted that the mastectomy and reconstructive surgery were just the start leaving the door and conversation open for her next challenge which we now know. this morning, exclusive new details from "people" magazine that angelina jolie's double mastectomy was just the beginning. >> sources tell "people," she will have surgery to remove her ovaries and will do it as soon as she can. >> reporter: her mother battled both breast and ovarian cancer succumbing to the disease at 56 after a ten-year battle. her maternal grandmother also suffered from ovarian cancer. jolie's doctors said she had a 54% chance of developing it. her fiancee, brad pitt, telling "usa today" "it was really
important to her to share her story and that others would understand it doesn't have to be a scary thing." he went on to call her decision heroic. dr. kristi funk of the pink lotus breast center oversaw her treatment. >> we hope that the awareness she is raising around the world will save countless lives. >> reporter: throughout the month's long mastectomies and reconstructive process jolie appeared anything but scared. >> this violence can be prevented and it must be confronted. >> reporter: we learned it all began with her first surgery. february 2nd. but always a mom here she's photographed taking the twins to the natural history museum with brad only two days before doctors removed breast tissue. then in march, she traveled to the congo on a humanitarian trip. and here she was on april 11th in london at the g-8 summit championing women's rights and humanitarian issues just 16 days before finishing her treatment. >> she doesn't even have a publicist.
so you tell your husband, you tell your doctor, you tell your manager, maybe your agent and that's it and those people keep the secret. >> reporter: on the pink lotus breast center website dr. funk detailed every decision she and angelina made about her treatment reflecting on the day she visited angelina to confirm our biggest hope "all of the breast tissue was benign. i was pleased to find her not only in good spirits with bountiful energy but with two walls in her house covered with freshly assembled story boards for the next project she is directing. brad pitt and the kids trying to make the recovery fun for the entire family setting up their own postop recovery area. when will the power couple get married. brad pitt just wrapped his latest film so should be out and about -- i know. that in the 8:00 hour. thanks paula. >> now to prince harry taking america by storm.

corcoran knows exactly what the megarich want. what are they looking for? what are tse >> pools, cabanas bigger than you your housegether put together and the biggest status symbol build your own museum to show off your art collection. crazy but, hey, they've got the bucks. >> reporter: you might even have spare change left over for six greek islands recently purchased for $11 million or perhaps you would like a super yacht like the one rumored to be built for the crown prince of saudi arabia, "the topaz" worth $350 million. that's also what it would cost to buy some sports teams like the chicago blackhawks or the boston bruins. some good options there. i'll take the six greek islands. remember, that $360 million jackpot can keep growing before tonight's drawing. if nobody wins we may see a truly record-setting jackpot worth at least $587 million and, george and amy, you have until
10:00 p.m. eastern to get those tickets. >> we'll be back again. gio, thanks very much. now to sam. that record heat coming our way now. >> we shouldn't be surprised by anything on the weather boards these days, george. i'll tell you you'll be surprised by this. in an area that just had snow less than two weeks ago above 100 degrees with record-setting numbers. 101 in omaha. sioux city, 106. minneapolis 98 degrees. that's not the only thing. this area, these temperatures, it's never, ever, ever before been this warm this early in the season in places like sioux city, omaha, lincoln and minneapolis. those are crazy warm numbers and that heat is sliding to the east. washington, d.c. after a chilly start you're up 30 degrees from your morning temperature. new york, you're up to about 70. raleigh, 89, 90 today. rain in the southwest and we'll talk more about that in the next half hour.

testimony about whether she deserves the death penalty. the prosecutor's expected to call just one witness, the medical examiner who performed the autopsy on alexander's body. arias stabbed him almost 30 times and shot him in the face. >> if you have injuries to the backs of the forearms -- >> reporter: the doctor will tell the jury travis alexander's death was cruel and was alive through most of the attack and had defensive wounds on his hands as he fought to get the knife away from jodi arias. next, the defense will try to save her life. arias, who testified for a remarkable 18 days during this trial, will address the jury again, this time to beg for mercy. >> the defense is going to tri to show that the manner in which that she caused travis alexander's death was not particularly cruel. he may well have died quickly so he didn't suffer any incredible mental anguish, but i think that's going to be an incredibly
hard sell. >> reporter: the defense will likely call any of arias' family or friends who will try to convince the jury there is something about this convicted killer that's worth saving. for "good morning america," ryan owens, abc news, phoenix. and now to that other big event today, o.j. simpson in court trying to win a new trial and get out of the extensive prison term he is serving for armed robbery and kidnapping. he's expected to take the stand today and abc's neal karlinsky has the story. >> reporter: when o.j. simpson takes the stand this morning, it will mark some of the most anticipated testimony in any courtroom in years. he never testified in his famed 1995 murder trial for the deaths of his ex-wife and a friend and never took the stand in the robbery and kidnapping case that put him behind bars four years ago either. >> how important is his performance if you can call it that tomorrow? >> some of these will come down to credibility, determined by
the judge. >> reporter: his friend tom scotto who traveled to las vegas just to watch tells abc news simpson runs the gym and coaches a baseball team in prison and is ready to finally speak up for himself in court. what do you think he has to do on the witness stand? >> he needs to be himself. be himself, be genuine like he is. be ka rcharismatic like he is. be o.j. >> reporter: it's built on the allegation his former attorney, yale galanter, wouldn't put him on the stand and didn't do a good or even fair job when he went on trial for this robbery. galanter has remained silent lew will testify later but not before o.j. simpson once again finds himself in the media crosshairs in court finally telling his version of events with his freedom at stake. for "good morning america," neal karlinsky, abc news, las vegas. >> and for more on both cases let's go to vinnie politan, former prosecutor, now host of
hln's "after dark." you heard o.j.'s friend. when he takes the stand for the first time we'll see him in one of these trials taking the stand. his friend just wants him to be himself. is that going to work. >> he can't just be himself. he has to do something much, much more which is somehow say his attorney messed up in a huge way and i think what he might say, george, is that his attorney was with him in vegas the night before the big caper, the robbery and this kidnapping and his lawyer knew what he was going to do and his lawyer may have actually been involved and knew his plans and as a result had some sort of kong applicant of interest to represent him at the trial to protect himself. i think that's his only chance, but is a judge really going to believe him? >> of course, the attorney will have a chance to come back and rebut the testimony, as well. let's move on to jodi, jodi arias, now in the sentencing phase of her trial. we know what the prosecution is going to do with their medical examiner witness, try to prove
cruelty. >> yeah, and to prove the cruelty this is what i think the prosecutor has to do in court today, juan martinez, say, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, she had a gun, she had a knife. she could have shot him in his sleep, one shot back of the head. he never would have known what happened. instead, she chose to stab him 29 times, why did she do it, ladies and gentlemen? because she wanted him to suffer. she wanted him to know he was going to die and she wanteded him to know who was doing it and that, ladies and gentlemen, is cruelty. i think that's his best argument today. >> we also saw the interview from jodi arias who says she wants the death penalty. do you think the jury is going to buy that? >> no, because it came out of jodi arias' mouth. they know that she is a liar. she lied to them in court under oath on the witness stand. she lied to investigators. that's all she does. i think she thinks she's smarter than everybody and is trying to use some sort of reverse
psychology. don't give me the death penalty hoping she gets life in prison. >> is there anything she can do to save herself? >> well, here's the thing, you know, with the death penalty, it's a very personal decision for a lot of jurors. the fact that she's a woman, that she's a young woman is probably her best bet because you've only got about 64 women on death row out of 3,000 in this country. so odds are she has a better chance than a man might have. but in light of everything this jury has heard, especially from jodi arias herself, i think she's got a difficult, difficult task here. >> vinnie, thanks very much. >> sam? >> cool breeze that works to the west coast. we've talked to a lot of folks out west, the heat this early in the year has been a issue for them. very dry. concerned about the fire season so getting a momentary break here from this cooler air backing in, 67 in san diego, 70 in l.a., san francisco, this runs all the way up by the way to seattle where it's a little cooler along the coastline.

we have a very excited crowd outside here in times square for the backstreet boys coming up in just a bit. but first it is now time for our gma "heat index," the hottest angelina jolie's decision to h have that double mastectomy. dramatically decreasing her risk of breast cancer and now more surgery is ahead for her. of course, she was inspired by her mother. her mother was only 56 when she died of ovarian cancer, that was a major factor in angelina's decision. >> it was a surprise announcement intended to raise awareness and save lives. the timing, just two days after mother's day, perhaps a valentine to the woman jolie once called grace incarnate. after divorcing actor jon voight in 1978 marcia leiber tra transraised angelina and her brother james alone. jolie described their loving bond in a 2011 profile in "vanity fair." my mother and brother and i were
closer because there wasn't another parent. we sat up in bed at night watching tv. by the time i was older my mother was like my sister. they remained remarkably close until bertrand's death at age 56 after a ten-year battle with cancer. jolie had become a mom herself just five years earlier. she told cynthia mcfadden her mom taught her the meaning of motherhood. >> she was completely full of love and kindness and it's the legacy she left. she didn't do anything other than love her children and raise them with so much care so she's tog me a lot about the importance of that. of just being -- just everyday kindness and i think it's the most important thing about being a mom. >> reporter: in "the new york times" jolie wrote of cherished yet bittersweet memories of her mother who held out long enough to meet the first of her grandchildren and to hold them in her arms but my other children will never have the chance to know how loving and gracious she was. >> what she was was a fantastic mother to angelina and angelina wants to pay that forward and be
a fantastic mother to her children. >> reporter: jolie says she decided on surgery after her doctors told her the brca1 gene gave her an 87% risk of breast cancer. after the surgery her risk drops to 5%, which she hopes will help her keep the role of a lifetime, that of mom. >> the most important thing to let them know what a joy they are for you and what a pleasure it is to be their mother. >> reporter: for "good morning america," i'm juju chang in new york. >> i want to thank juju for that and bring in also abc's senior medical correspondent dr. jennifer ashton to talk more about this because this is something now everyone is talking about and a lot of people are wondering who should get the brca test. >> in medicine before you do a test in theory you should know what you'll do with the results before you get the test and this test is absolutely not for everyone. there's a long list, however, and some important groups, number one if you've had two first degree relatives with breast cancer where one person is diagnosed at the age of 50 or younger so that's mother, sister, daughter. second big group is three
or second degree relatives diagnosed with breast cancer at any age so then we're talking about a grandmother or an aunt and the third group ovarian cancer. if you have two or more relatives with ovarian cancer at any age or male breast cancer in the family you want to talk about it. >> only if you have all three in no, only if you have one of those and there's a long list. there are more that we didn't mention but, you know, this is something you want to talk to a doctor about. >> it's important to note because this is an expensive test. it's $3,000. >> a lot of controversy and misinformation that came out yesterday about the cost. it can be as high as $3500. it can also be free and the test -- then the company who does this test has done 5,000 tests completely for free over the last three years. should it be more than that? absolutely, but, again, there are options available for people who can't afourd it. >> angelina is 37 years old. her age was a factor in this, correct, in terms of when you should get the test. >> amy, i think we have to distinguish between a world renowned celebrity and an everyday regular woman.
it's a very individual one. >> all right. we thank you very much for those very important things. switching gears now to something else burning up the "heat index," a surprising way that some husbands are making themselves actually useful at home. it's all about this upscale salon in new york offering blow drying classes to teach men how to style their wife's hair, but can this new beauty school actually be a way to save big bucks and maybe a marriage? abc's linsey davis has the story. >> reporter: blow, twirl, repeat. that's the drill at a blowout bar. a salon not about coloring or cutting your hair just wash and blow. they've become all the rage across the country because they tend to be faster and cheaper than a full service salon. a typical blowout costs $35 and many women go as many as three times a week which once you add tax and tip we're talking
roughly $500 a month. that's $6,000 a year. but what if your husband could do it for you? just think of the savings with time and money. >> always keeping the brush away from the face. >> that's where arson comes in. >> once they have the rhythm of the brush and blow joer, it's easy. >> reporter: he came up with a lesson at louis licari salon. a hair-raising $2400 for six two-hour classes. >> hold it tight. >> got it. >> reporter: this is jeff langberg's second class. the investment banker by day realizes the potential is here. >> what's the most difficult part so far. >> making sure i don't burn her. >> reporter: he says it comes down to effectively we willing a 200-watt machine in one hand and a hairbrush in another.
sounds like a great way to bond with your spouse which is why i recruited this guy. paul, my husband of just two months to see how well he could handle the heat. >> this is the way turn it on. >> a transformation in a matter of minutes, not just my hair but my husband. >> she has products in her hair. >> reporter: maybe this will be a new way for him to smooth things out when things in our marriage get a bit hairy. >> oh, he's good. >> and thank you, paul, for doing that. a blowout can cost you $85 or more in new york so there might be savings in training the hubby in hairstyling over the long term. >> how did he do? >> he was pretty coordinated. he wasn't so bad. i don't know that we'll try it at home. >> 4:00 a.m. every morning. >> right. >> george, when you do this for ali, promise somebody will film it. >> so far below zero the chances --
>> the mere question -- >> still weird because i feel like that would be weird -- >> it is strange. a lot of like pulling and strands -- >> is this something you can't do yourself? >> no. it's really difficult. you need two hands and coordination and holding the hair dryer. and twirling. >> all right. and on that note we are going to move on to "dancing with the stars" next, the gma "heat index." 300th episode. so many of our favorites showed up for the celebration. time for one more couple to say good-bye. >> the couple with the lowest combined total of judges' scores and viewer votes and therefore leaving right now is -- ingo and kym. >> here they are now, ingo rademacher, kym johnson, thank you very much for getting up early this morning. there you guys are. ingo, come on. you made it a long way for an underdog. >> yes, i couldn't be happier. i said to my wife when we first decided to come out here that

they do and can't believe i've been on, you know, such a great tv show for four years, and we're all looking forward to going back. you know, we have a good thing going there. we all love each other and get along great and our writers are fantastic, so we're all eager to get back in august to start season five. >> this the up-front season when all the networks show the new shows to advertisers here in the city and i was struck just yesterday how many single camera shows there are. how good does it feel to be part of an ensemble that really reinstituted that as an effective way to tell a story? >> yeah, there were a lot of shows before us that were that way, but there's no doubt that "modern family" hit something in hollywood and, you know, lightning struck and people run to that and try to re-create it when they can, so it feels good to know that other shows want to be a version of "modern family" somehow, but, you know, it's good for tv. it's good for people. i love that people are watching comedies and letting actors act and writers write and maybe get rid of some of that other stuff on tv a little bit. >> yeah.
you know, on twitter i follow you. i always feel your pain as a sports fan, as well. >> yeah. >> yesterday in kansas signing the great andrew wiggins. k. state fan. >> yes. >> are the wildcats ready? >> well, we have to get ready. we're not ready but i love kansas state. that's where i went. you know, i actively root against k.u. as much as i can. >> yeah. >> i just did it right there, but, no, the kansas state/k.u. rivalry is awesome and proud to be a wildcat just like jayhawks are proud to be jayhawks. i just don't get them. >> what's this rock talk? we did see clowns in the audience and this is actually -- i understand -- like the clown, this was a big thing for you. >> oh, yeah, when i was a kid, i wanted to be a clown in the circus. i wanted to travel with ringling brothers and i didn't get that opportunity but i said it all worked. now i get to be a clown in the biggest circus of all, hollywood. >> what goes into auditioning
for clown school? >> well, i don't think there is a clown college anymore but i went to kansas city in chicago twice or each once and auditioned and i had to do a little clown sketch and try my best to show that i could be a clown. >> can you do like the balloons? >> yeah, but it's more physical comedy and falls and gags, you know, you have to realize you have to communicate with the top ring of the top row of an arena. >> i would argue it's worked out for you. >> it's worked out. >> it's really worked out. again, it is obviously a phenomenal show for us each and every week. "modern family," 9:00, 8:00 central. >> something fell in times square. they are flowers and they are down. the flowers are down. >> the patch is down. the patch is down. >> did you knock these over? did you knock these over? >> samuel champion, the patch is down, sam. >> help them. >> the patch is down. >> that's virtually impossible because our very real, very live flowers at the patch couldn't possibly be laying on their
side. they couldn't possibly -- very real. very real flowers. good morning, everybody. how are you? where are you from? >> green bay, wisconsin. >> green bay. >> dallas, texas. >> dallas, texas. >> dallas, texas. >> dallas. >> nebraska. >> nebraska. and, wait, you're hiding from the camera. you can't come to television and hide from the camera. tell me your name. >> roz. >> where are you from, roz? >> georgia. >> let's get to the boards. you cannot hide from the camera. you just can't do it. here's what the twitter and facebook pictures look like outside. we've got one from new jersey this morning. a lot of folks talking about when you see a halo around the moon or the sun, normally that's very high cirrus clouds that give you that effect when you see something like that. absolutely beautiful. a little bit of clovis. good morning, everybody. here's what's happening. we've got this area of storms that will follow the warm front as it lifts in. might not get all the way to new york and boston but to pittsburgh to philadelphia to washington, d.c., there's a potential of strong storms today lining up with gusty winds. here's where the heat is. st. louis, today, 89 degrees. this part of the country all the way to kansas city just had snow falling on the ground a couple
