"new york times" reports aides to the potential presidential candidate took no action to have her e-mails preserved, possibly violating federal rules. clinton recently turned over more than 50,000 pages of e-mails at the request of the state department but reportedly not all of them. israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu addresses a full session of congress today. the controversial invitation came from house republicans who did not consult with the white house. netanyahu plans to appeal to lawmakers to oppose president obama's negotiations with iran over its nuclear program. this move is polarizing views on the nuclear talks and on israel. >> i regret some people have misperceived my visit here this week as doing that. israel has always been a bipartisan issue.
2:35 am
israel should always remain a bipartisan issue. >> reporter: turn to abc's molly hunter on the line with us live from israel. hello to you. the prime minister setting the stage wanting to make it clear, both sides sound like they want to strike a conciliatory tone here. how much of a preview did we see yesterday. what can we expect today? >> good morning, t.j. >> we got a teaser, an appetizer before today's main course. let me tell you, there's nothing is israeli prime minister's love more than speaking to a roaring crowd of 16,000 pro israel americans and netanyahu played to his base. he talked about the u.s. relationship. he said he wasn't here to give a speech about disrespecting obama. he wasn't here to give a speech to disrespect obama but analysts say it's too little too late. >> molly, we know the white house was not happy about netanyahu's speech. do we know anything more about relations between the white house and netanyahu? have they patched things up at all? anything more about what is going on between those two?
2:36 am
>> that's right. it has been disastrous, absolutely disastrous for the relationship. the u.s. has up until recently been sharing information with israel, with netanyahu about these ongoing iran nuclear talks. now, yesterday, secretary of state kerry and white house spokesperson josh earnest warned netanyahu if any of that sensitive information, any of that information they have been sharing turned up in his speech today they would consider that nothing short of betrayal. >> wow, that is interesting. we know elections are going to take place in israel very soon. how is all of this fallout with the white house playing out with israelis on the streets? >> we are two weeks out from elections. honestly, from netanyahu's talk about iran being a threat here in israel and about national security, this speech is much more about his own job security and that's exactly how israelis are viewing it. don't get me wrong, every israeli channel will show the speech tonight at 6:00 p.m. local and israelis will tune in.
2:37 am
but israelis see this as an election stunt with potentially a huge price to pay back in washington. with that said, analysts tell me if he gets a strong, thoughtful speech today and congress rises to their feet, that could move the needle in his favor. so clearly he's made the calculation that it is worth it to go to washington, make this speech for the domestic gain, even if that means a massive price with his relationship with washington. >> okay. abc's molly hunter live for us from jerusalem. thank you so much, molly. we love having her there in the middle east with these reports. >> thank you so much, molly. fallout from the killing of russian opposition leader boris nemtsov. a model with him the night he was murdered gave an emotional recounting of their last dinner together. the young woman said she did not see who pulled the trigger. here's abc's hamish mcdonald. >> reporter: the security camera captures the final moments of boris nemtsov's life. he circled in the distance.
