7:05 am
>> i'm cautiously optimistic that we'll get there in a timely manner. >> reporter: a record 43 million americans are expected to travel this fourth of july weekend. 36 million of them plan on driving. why so many? there's very little pain at the pump. gas prices are at their lowest in over a decade. the average gallon costing 50 cents less than it cost this time last year. >> gas prices have been at their all-time low all summer. so i think it's encouraging more people to get on the road and start driving. >> reporter: if you're one of those planning to get behind the wheel this weekend, it's all about timing. experts at the traffic and navigation app waze sharing their tips for the best and worst times to start your journey. >> if you're planning to leave today, don't leave between 3:00 and 5:00 p.m. try to head out early or head out later if you're waiting for the weekend to start. >> reporter: according to waze, on monday, the actual 4th, traffic will peak late, around 10:00 p.m. nationwide, when many people are heading home after seeing fireworks.
7:06 am
there will be more police on the roads this weekend. to avoid getting a ticket, remember to watch your speed, use your phone hands-free. those police will be out patrolling for drunk drivers. george? >> lots of good advice there. that's the scene on the road. how about flying? expect to wait this weekend. airports all across the country stepping up security after the terror attack in turkey. abc's david kerley is on the scene at reagan national airport. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, george. you're right. there are two factors colliding today. and as you can see, the lines are already long here in washington. as they are at other airports around the country. folks getting out for the weekend. it's expected to be a record summer travel season. one estimate putting the number of fliers just today at more than 3 million. that's 500,000 more than a daily average this summer season. of course the crush comes just days after the istanbul terrorist attack. several major airports have added additional officers. many with tactical gear and assault-type rifles. secretary of homeland security told congress yesterday that the
7:07 am
american people should expect to see additional officers deployed at events over this holiday season. tsa says they're prepared. we're seeing long lines waiting for security. the good news is they are moving so far, guys. that's the good news at this point. >> we'll take what good news we can get. >> a little bit of good news there. what about the weather, though? let's get back to ginger for your fourth of july forecast. >> lara, i wish i had better news for you. if you live anywhere from philadelphia, to washington, d.c., to new york, please pay attention to this. today, tonight, that's our trouble spot. right. so a lot of folks traveling. i have a flight i'm concerned about. from virginia up to vermont. we have the severe weather threat here this afternoon and evening. a cold front is going to come through. damaging wind is possible. hail. the outside shot of a tornado. so watch the timing here with me. through the afternoon. after the noon hour, it starts blowing up. i stopped it here at 6:00 for the line of storms which could become severe, comes right through some of the big cities and right along the i-95 corridor.
7:08 am
i couldn't plan this more poorly if i tried for your fourth of july holiday weekend. coming up we'll look at the forecast for the fireworks and that's looking a lot better for a lot of folks. let's go ahead and head back to lara and george. >> ginger, you just ruined my weekend. >> i know. wah, wah. we're going to turn to the race for the white house. a new firestorm for bill clinton. he's facing criticism from both parties after a meeting on the tarmac with attorney general loretta lynch who is ultimately responsible for the justice department investigation into hillary clinton's private e-mail server. abc's tom llamas joins us now. you asked donald trump about this when you talked to him yesterday. >> reporter: george, donald trump had a lot to say about this. this morning, a major development. abc news confirming that attorney general loretta lynch will announce she'll accept whatever recommendation that the fbi director and prosecutors make on the case involving hillary clinton's e-mail server, essentially take herself out of the equation. lynch's decision in the wake of that controversial meeting she
7:09 am
had with former president bill clinton. this morning, donald trump finding more ammo to accuse hillary clinton of playing by her own rules. >> it's something you don't do from an ethical standpoint. >> reporter: trump sounding off on a meeting between former president bill clinton and current attorney general loretta lynch. her justice department is still investigating hillary clinton's use of a private e-mail server. >> our conversation was a great deal about his grandchildren and primarily social. it was about our travels. there was no discussion of benghazi, the state department e-mails. >> reporter: that meeting on a phoenix airport tarmac. aides to bill clinton and lynch saying it was not arranged but rather a chance encounter. do you take president clinton at his word that the meeting was to be poe lit, that it was sincere, just to say hello? >> when you meet for a half hour, and you're talking about your grandchildren and a little
7:10 am
bit about golf, it sounds like a long meeting. it was a very sad situation to see, tom. that i can tell you. >> reporter: the questionable meeting coming as president obama is set to hit the trail with hillary clinton on tuesday. the president turning up the heat on trump. >> we may look back at something like the trump campaign as the last vestige of a kind of politics of us versus them. >> reporter: trump telling me president obama is twisting his message. >> i think it's just the opposite, you want to know the truth. we want to bring our jobs back, we want to have a strong military. we don't want people coming in to our country that truly hate us. we have people coming in, they could very well be isis and everybody knows it. >> reporter: trump revealing part of his plan to take out isis, using nato, which trump has called obsolete in the past. you would use nato troops to take out isis? >> i like the idea of using nato and also neighbors that aren't in nato and take 'em out. >> reporter: and we're on vp watch this morning. abc's confirming new jersey governor chris christie is being seriously vetted by the trump campaign. and "the washington post" reporting newt gingrich is also
7:11 am
being looked at. george? >> okay, tom, thanks very much. let's talk about all this with kellyanne conway. just hired as senior adviser for donald trump's campaign. thanks for joining us this morning. let's start with the news just breaking right now. the attorney general will not recuse herself from this. but effectively, the decision will be the director of the fbi's james comey. does that end the controversy? >> probably not. this is a smart move for attorney general lynch. i think bill clinton put her in a very difficult position where it would be easy for people to question her impartiality. had she not followed the fbi's recommendation, people would go back to that meeting on the tarmac, george, and say, ah-ha. there's nefarious activity. i think when you're hillary clinton and two-thirds of the country say you're not trust worthy and 58% of the fox poll say you're corrupt, this doesn't help. it plays right into donald trump saying crooked hillary. either recusal or appointing a special investigator, or in this case, taking herself out of the equation were necessary. >> a tough number for donald
7:12 am
trump in the same fox poll. more than half of republicans say they still would prefer another candidate. how does he turn that around? >> that doesn't surprise me. in that voters are always looking for another alternative. these campaigns can be a long slog. i think he turns that around by bringing his case to the people. basically saying to the party elites and establishment, look, i've done my part. i became the republican nominee. almost 14 million people supported me. i need you to do your part. and really -- these republican officials, if they think they've got something to add, george, they should go to him and say, let me help you with policy, let me help you navigate capitol hill. i think it's incumbent on both sides to really try to come together and that will turn that number around. >> finally, we saw tom llamas saying chris christie being vetted. newt gingrich being vetted. what do they bring to the ticket? and does it make sense for mr. trump to pick his vp now or right away so he can get a little momentum going into the convention? >> i wouldn't be surprised if the vp is announced the week before the convention. that's not atypical. and then maybe go on a tour together. so the published report suggest gingrich and christie are the
7:13 am
top of the list. in christie, or gingrich, trump gets somebody like him who is very media savvy. and someone unafraid to go after hillary clinton, bill clinton. it seems like he's not looki ii regionally. it seems like he's looking at somebody to wage this political national campaign. and to help him governing. he's admitted he wants somebody with legislative experience who can be a partner, get things done in washington. >> could lean to gingrich. thank you. let's go back to lara. >> george, thank you. now the big headline overseas. officials revealing new images of the suspects in the suicide bombing at the istanbul airport. and new information on who they were. abc's terry moran is on the scene with the latest. good morning, terry. >> reporter: good morning, lara. this morning, the airport is bustling again. the turks working defiantly day and night to get it back to speed. and investigators are going all out. they're learning more about this terror plot and about the attackers. this morning, this chilling image haunting turkey. the three airport attackers just before they unleashed their
7:14 am
rampage. and they're smiling. this security camera video from an airport kiosk. people scrambling for cover. seconds later, a gunman stalking the terminal looking for victims. turkish authorities say that two were from central asia and one from russia. all recruiting grounds for isis. they lived and plotted here. a working class neighborhood in istanbul. this is where the attackers lived behind this steel reinforced door. one of the neighbors said sunday night, two days before the attack, the chemical smell from there, like paint thinner she said, was so strong she and other neighbors called the landlord to complain. this man, a neighbor, tells us the men wore baseball caps whenever they went out. avoiding eye contact in this tight-knit neighborhood. i saw them looking out from behind the curtains, he says. but they never showed their faces. now turkish officials are cracking down.
7:15 am
for the families of the 44 people killed here, there is only the loss and the grieving. turkey has become a terrorist battleground. it's spill-over from the syrian civil war right next door. it is also, many say, the price turkey is paying for looking the other way for years while so many jihadists used this airport to go and join isis. lara? >> thank you, terry. now to allegations of hazing in the marine corps. more than a dozen drill instructors under investigation after a 20-year-old recruit died at the parris island training camp three months ago. abc's steve osunsami has the latest. good morning, steve. >> reporter: good morning, george. the muslim family of the 20-year-old at the center of this investigation was told he committed suicide. but the family believes there's much more to the story. that he was harassed. raheel siddiqui was a high school valedictorian with dreams of one day joining the fbi. but just 11 days in the marine
7:16 am
boot camp at parris island, marines say the 20-year-old committed suicide. >> oh, my -- >> reporter: his mother and sister don't believe for a second that he killed himself. >> i don't believe this. i do not believe my son never, never do suicide. no. something happened over there. >> reporter: the marines say he jumped 40 feet to his death during training in march. this morning, his family believes he was hazed. they're asking the military to save all surveillance videos, reports and audio recordings involving their son. >> i think it was hazing that had gone too far. i don't think everything we know today is the truth. i think some of them are lies. >> reporter: because of this investigation, we're learning that the marine corps has been looking into allegations of hazing, physical abuse, assault, and failure of supervision against 15 drill instructors at parris island since november. in siddiqui's case, they say a drill instructor was improperly placed in charge of recruits while he was subject to an ongoing investigation.
7:17 am
a battalion commander was relieved of his duties. >> the commanding officer has been relieved. his commanding officer has been relieved. the marine corps has found rot within a single unit. the real question is, did it spread to other parts of this recruit training depot? >> reporter: a commanding general says we take every allegation of misconduct seriously. we'll review each investigation carefully. the marine corps says the safety of their recruits and the integrity of their recruit training program are some of the top priorities. those 15 drill sergeants are being kept away from recruits during the investigation. george? >> a lot of questions. okay, steve, thanks very much. you have this huge problem with tesla. >> yeah, there are some real concerns about the safety of this so-called self-driving technology. a navy s.e.a.l. was killed when his new self-driving tesla crashed into a truck at a florida intersection. police say the car was in autopilot mode, which failed to pick up the truck's white siding and apparently did not signal the brakes.
7:18 am
the government looking into the system to design and performance. could be so scary. and we're going to get back to ginger right now with another somewhat dismal look of the weekend weather. >> as if i could have more bad news. oh, i do, don't worry. >> terrific. >> if you're camping in the mountain west, flash flooding can happen in an instant. you've got all that monsoon moisture. it falls on a burn scar and then it rushes down the mountainside. that could be an issue. if you're near kansas city, you could see up to six inches of rain fall quickly. keep that in mind. and then tomorrow, the severe weather threat heads to north carolina. i think i'm done with the bad news now.
7:19 am

7:32 am
in prison for murdering his high school ex-girlfriend, hae min lee. >> it is what it is. if someone believes me or not, i have no control over it. >> reporter: all along, he's maintained his innocence. while his initial attempts to appeal were unsuccessful, now at 36 years old, after spending more than half his life in jail, a judge signed an order for a new trial. >> the conviction is erased. it's gone. he's not -- as of this date, he's not convicted anymore. >> reporter: in the order, the judge cites the defense's decision to not cross-examine a state witness about the reliability of cell tower evidence. the judge also questions why the defense had not spoken to a possible al by witness. >> if there was some technicality that would then prove his innocence, great, you know? >> but i think asia, like, you might be that technicality. >> reporter: asia mcclain, a classmate of syed's says she was with him in the school library at the time prosecutors allege
7:33 am
lee was killed. >> do i think adnan killed hae? honestly, i wouldn't tell you. by coming forward, i hope i was able to provide enough information for the judge, for him to be able to make a rational decision. >> reporter: on thursday, mcclain, who just gave birth, tweeted, wow, i'm speechless. new baby, new trial. >> statistically, it was over. so, um, we have come back from that. i can't emphasize enough that there's a lot more work to be done. but, we're feeling pretty confident. >> reporter: the maryland attorney general's office released a statement to abc news saying the state's responsibility remains to pursue justice and to defend what it believes is a valid conviction. lee's family has long said they believe syed was the killer. george? >> thanks. joining us is adnan's syed attorney, c. justin brown. mr. brown, thank you for joining us this morning. have you had a chance to speak to your client? >> actually, i have not. my office has been -- we've been
7:34 am
trying to reach him in the prison. but so tar we haven't had any luck. if i had to guess, i would imagine word has made its way to him. and he knows about the decision. >> you're going to have a new trial. first challenge, getting your client out on bail. how likely is that? >> we're just starting to look into that. i think we have a very compelling case that if that's what we try to do, that he's not a flight risk, and he is not a danger to the community. and therefore, he should be allowed out on bail. >> would you be getting this retrial right now if it weren't for the podcast, "serial "? >> it's undeniable that it's helped us and it's generated so much interest in the case and it's generated so much new investigation. that i would say, but for the podcast "serial," we would not be sitting where we are today. >> and what's your biggest
7:35 am
challenge going forward in the retrial? no guarantees. >> no, i mean, it's a -- it's a new trial. i think even before we get to that stage, though, it's possible if not likely that the state would want to appeal the judge's decisions. but we're pretty confident that the opinion is very solid and it's based on the facts. it's based on the law. and, um -- you know, we feel pretty good about the fact that it will hold up in the appellate court. >> what is the number one move you're going to make that wasn't made in the original trial? >> as the judge pointed out in his opinion, there are very substantial questions about the reliability of the cell tower evidence that the state introduced at trial. and, it would be a no-brainer for us to try to initially get that thrown out. >> are you confident your client didn't commit this murder? >> i am. i've been representing adnan for
7:36 am
almost eight years now. he has always maintained his innocence. and, um -- you know, you get to know someone over that amount of time. i have full confidence in his innocence. >> mr. brown, thank you for joining us this morning. >> my pleasure. thank you. >> and lara, "the big board" coming up? yes, we do. coming up on "the big board." quarterback johnny manziel is in more hot water with the nfl. dr. drew is standing by live with the latest. and that incredible "star spangled banner" singer is about to make her national debut live for us, kicking off our party in the park. we'll be back in two minutes here on "gma." ♪ and the home of the brave of course you go all out for date night... even if you're just staying in.

>> you know, look, lara. good times going the cabo. but not for somebody with this kind of disease. it's very common for people to set a date. i'll be surprised if -- even though he intends to be in today, i'll be surprised if we don't see something like midnight on the fourth of july. and if he survives this -- people, very commonly when they decide to go in for addiction, they decide to go out on one last binge. and it can be dangerous. >> he still hasn't been picked up by a team. let's say a team wanted to take the risk and gamble on him. what kind of conditions would they have to put on him? if you were advising that team, what would you say to them to say to him? >> unfortunately, i almost have never seen an employer do the kind of aggressive measures necessary to keep somebody like this sober. unfortunately, he needs 6 to 12 months of sustained treatment. he has a serious illness here. if he doesn't take that time and not even think about football. i talked to todd marinovich, a guy with a similar story. if you remember him. he said, look, surrender is what's necessary to get well in
7:41 am
addiction. you're a professional athlete, surrender means losing. just being a professional athlete works against the process of getting somebody sober. >> if johnny manziel were serious, what we would see is forget about the four-game suspension, i'm sitting out next season. i'm going to rehab? >> absolutely. probably what you would see is actually nothing. he would sort of drop out and reemerge a healthy man and pursue an active career. in the meantime, his life is in jeopardy. >> that is so concerning. i'm wondering, should his team do that for him and just say, you know, let's do it right. don't do it halfway. do it right. >> i don't expect an employer to do that. it's not their responsibility. you see the family trying to do it. as my recovering friends remind me, the family is the one that suffers. when somebody is in their disease, they're high. they're doing their thing. the family is watching somebody die. for them, it's very painful. they're fairly helpless. >> all right, dr. drew. very upsetting. thank you so much for your take on johnny manziel. i do want to move on now.

this is a story, walmart versus amazon. the retail giants are facing off in an online shopping showdown, if you will. walmart offering free unlimited two-day shipping service for 30 days. a direct shot at amazon prime which also offers two-day shipping. joining us now is becky worley. becky, will this make a difference? can they compete with amazon? >> oh, amazon versus walmart. battle of the titans online. bring it. prime is huge for online shopping. that's because people who are members, they convert more. meaning they buy more and they buy more frequently. you know, when you look at amazon's business model, jeff bezos, way back, he talked to jim sinegal who's the founder of costco, the ultimate original membership -type of business model for us consumers. that's what amazon has built their business on. walmart wants in. they're going for the jugular.

also, opportunities for different interviews with national broadcasting networks. so there have been a lot of amazing things happening. >> we're glad that you're with us. and how about amazing opportunities? has anybody talked to you about pursuing a career in singing now? >> um, yes, of course. there are plenty of people asking about what are my plans, you know from this moment forward? i have always dreamed of singing professionally. this is not my first time -- i don't just do it for fun. although it is fun, but -- i'm hoping that, you know, this will allow me the opportunity to continue to share my voice with the world. >> you're doing that. we can't wait to hear you in our next hour. star, thanks very much. thanks to becky and dr. drew as well. we'll be back with star in a minute. she'll be our hot shot of the day kicking off our party in the park for fourth of july weekend. rth of july weekend.
