7:02 am
>> that's a really big question. we'll be talking about it with george stephanopoulos. but we're going to start here with the so-called heat-dome bringing stifling temperatures to most of america. there's the map. it's dangerous out there in many spots, especially so in los angeles. where this wildfire has forced the evacuation of 1500 homes already. >> that fire is on the move. in a moment, rob will tell us if there's any relief in sight. but first, to philip mena. who is on the front lines, just outside of los angeles, where firefighters are contending with triple-digit temperatures. philip? >> reporter: dan, paula, good morning. we're on a 450-acre ranch that that used to double as a backdrop for many famous hollywood productions for more than 40 years. but this morning, it's been reduced to a flaming pile of rubble. this dangerous wildfire has now spread from the desolate hills into neighborhoods. >> this is fire station 135. >> reporter: this morning, the fast-moving sand fire has claimed multiple homes,
7:03 am
businesses, and according to officials, possibly one life. the out-of-control wildfire just north of los angeles is forcing the evacuation of 1500 homes. and officials fear it could get much worse. >> if we were to get very extreme fire behavior, we're up to 45,000 homes in those areas. >> reporter: l.a.'s fire chief blaming a dangerous cocktail of triple-digit heat, bone-dry terrain, and high winds for this growing inferno. these firefighters among 900 trying to stave off disaster, rushing into neighborhoods. their hoses, the only things standing between homes and an aggressive wall of fire. others flying dangerous water drops. >> we're kind of getting antsy to get everyone out. everyone has dogs and animals and babies and kids. we're just trying to get out. >> reporter: overnight, the inferno exploding in size. now ten times bigger than the first flames sighted on friday afternoon. just off this freeway in santa clarita. now stretching all the way from there to this canyon lined with upscale homes.
7:04 am
a popular setting for hollywood films and reality shows. >> what we saw was some extreme fire behavior. the kind of things that firefighters who have been doing this for 30, 40 years haven't seen in their career. >> reporter: you can see how smoky it is out here. the air quality is so bad in los angeles that local public health officials are urging residents to stay indoors. paula. >> very dangerous. philip, thank you. and the wildfires are exacerbated by this dangerous heat. it's becoming problematic across the country. rob is here to explain it all. rob, good morning. >> good morning, paula. another day of extreme fire danger across parts of southern california. the coastline will see some cooling today. very hot inland. and very hot and humid across the inland parts of the u.s. again today. we have heat warnings. look at these heat indices. 104 or better in dallas. another day tomorrow. and across the northeast, hotter on tuesday and wednesday. big storms in chicago last night. we'll talk more about that in ten minutes. dan? >> rob, thank you.
7:05 am
much more on this throughout the show. but we're going to turn now to the olympics. with 12 days to go until the opening ceremony in rio, the international olympic committee is holding a big meeting right now with a momentous decision on the table. whether to ban the entire russian team from the rio games over charges of doping. abc's lama hasan is on the story from london. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dan, it is judgment day today. the international olympic committee is meeting this morning to discuss the fate of russia's national team. will there be an all-out ban on all 387 russian athletes from competing in the rio olympics, now only just a couple of weeks away? which is unprecedented. no country hass ever been kicked out for doping violations. but that is the recommendation by the world anti-doping agency. the agency recently issuing a scathing report saying russia had been operating a four-year, state-sponsored doping program across the board. including 30 different olympic sports from 2011 to 2015. the highest court of appeal in
7:06 am
international sports has already upheld a decision banning all russian track and field athletes from the rio games. russian president vladimir putin saying the allegations are politically motivated and a western plot to undermine russia. the ioc's president promising the toughest sanctions available. but there is tension within the ioc, however, between those wanting to send a clear message to russia with an all-out ban and those who think it's unfair to punish clean athletes. so, that is a big question the ioc will be facing today. dan, paula? >> lama, as you said, it would be unprecedented. just 12 days to go. thank you. and the big news at home this week, the democratic national convention, which kicks off tomorrow in philadelphia. >> and hillary clinton was out on the stump on saturday introducing her new vp pick to the nation. virginia senator tim kaine. they'll share the stage at the convention in philadelphia, which is where we find abc's mary bruce this morning. good morning. >> reporter: hey, good morning. hillary clinton will arrive here with a new partner by her side.
7:07 am
one that's she's hoping will give her fresh momentum and help convince those skeptical voters to get on board. a new ticket making its debut. >> my friend, senator tim kaine. >> reporter: in english -- >> i could not be any more honored to stand by hillary's side. >> reporter: -- and spanish. [ speaking spanish ] >> reporter: senator tim kaine from the battleground state of virginia is viewed as a safe and sensible pick. one that clinton hopes will draw a sharp contrast with her rivals. >> senator tim kaine is everything donald trump and mike pence are not. >> reporter: kaine proudly admits, he lacks oomph. >> i am boring. but boring is the fastest growing demographic in the country. >> reporter: and is a bit quirky. ♪ >> reporter: lacking in traditional charisma, but not traditional experience. he's a former governor and mayor. a senator with foreign policy chops. and a winning record. >> i've never lost an election.
7:08 am
>> reporter: and it's clear, kaine is ready to play attack dog. >> you want a trash-talking president or a bridge-building president? >> reporter: punching back, donald trump is out with a new nickname, dubbing him corrupt kaine. tweeting just saw crooked hillary and tim kaine together. isis and our other enemies are drooling. they don't look presidential to me. >> reporter: now, the first big test of this ticket comes tomorrow. in 24 hours, this place will be packed with politicians, celebrities, and delegates. first up speaking, michelle obama tomorrow night. and a head liner you might not expect -- bernie sanders, clinton's former rival taking center stage. paula. >> sounds like a star-studded affair. mary, thank you. we want to move to the controversy brewing this morning on the eve of the convention. wikileaks released thousands of e-mails from the dnc appearing to show favoritism towards hillary clinton. so, the big question -- could
7:09 am
this create chaos on the convention floor among bernie sanders supporters? abc's david wright joins us with more. hi, david. >> reporter: hi, paula. just when hillary clinton was hoping to put the whole notion of an e-mail controversy behind her, here comes an entirely different e-mail controversy. and one that threatens the unity the democrats are hoping to show in philadelphia. >> secretary clinton has won the democratic nominating process. >> reporter: the clinton campaign thought it successfully had put that bitter primary battle behind her. >> i can't help but reflect how much more enjoyable this election is going to be now that we are on the same side. >> reporter: as the democrats get ready to start their convention, leaked e-mails from the democratic national committee now show that sanders may have been right all along, when he claimed the party had its thumb on the scale for clinton all along. >> rigged is when somebody changes ththe rules in the midd of the game. >> reporter: wikileaks, the internet watchdog group, leaked
7:10 am
20,000 e-mails from seven top dnc officials during primary season. does he believe in a god, wondered one official. he had skated on saying he has a jewish heritage. i think i read he's an atheist. this could make several points difference with my peeps. some dnc officials refer to sanders as the insurgency. the dnc chairwoman, debbie the wasserman schultz referred to his campaign manager as an [ bleep ]. sanders made no secret his contempt for wasserman schultz. telling cnn in may he would fire her. >> with all due respect to the current chairperson, if elected president, she would not be reappointed to be chair of the dnc. >> reporter: according to the leaked e-mails, wasserman schultz decided not to respond to that, writing, this is a silly story. he isn't going to be president. well, donald trump seems to be enjoying all this. tweeting that the e-mail release was so bad for sanders that it will make it impossible for him to support clinton, unless he's a fraud, says trump.
7:11 am
sanders' former campaign manager tells abc news that somebody has to be held accountable. no comment from the dnc. but we're told that they're in negotiations now to significantly downgrade debbie wasserman schultz's role at the convention. >> she's not speaking is she? >> she may be speaking. but probably, not so much. >> david, thank you. >> thanks, david. let's get out to abc news chief anchor george stephanopoulos who will be hosting "this week" later this morning. george's in philadelphia already. good morning, sir. >> good morning, guys. how's it going? >> we have to talk about wikileaks. this is casting a dark shadow over the convention. you now have politicians calling on bernie to recuse his endorsement of clinton. so, are you expecting any sort of chaos on the floor, like we saw at the republican convention last week? >> i think that is a little strong. there is a lot of upset here in philadelphia, no question about that. those wikileaks leaked e-mails are startling, when you read them. it sort of proves what a lot of bernie sanders supporters
7:12 am
thought all along. i think you are definitely going to see some downgrading of debbie wasserman schultz's role. here at the convention. a lot of different things being considered from getting a new ceremonial chairman to having her not speak in primetime. it's pretty clear that sanders supporters would boo her pretty lustily if she appeared on the floor in primetime. it's something they have to work through today. there were long negotiations yesterday. they'll continue through sunday. >> a complication the campaign certainly did not need. so, how do you think the selection of tim kaine is going over? we're hearing rumbling from the left of the party. how problematic is that? >> well, they were not too happy with the idea of tim kaine. there's no question about that. his support of trade deals in the past. he's since recanted his support of the transpacific partnership. they say he hasn't always been out front on the fight for things like gay rights. he's pro-life, even though he supports a woman's right to choose, as well. he says he's against abortion. there have been some questions in the progressive movement for tim kaine.
7:13 am
issues about the banks, as well. but i think his performance yesterday went a ways to quiet some of that criticism. especially reaching out to latinos with all that talk in spanish at the event. but there's still some grumbling. i think a lot of people will key off how bernie sanders reacts to the pick. we'll talk about that to him this morning on "this week." >> another big week for you, george. best of luck. and a reminder, george will anchor "this week" this morning from philadelphia. as the democrats gear up for their convention. also, we'll have complete coverage of the dnc all week. "world news tonight." "nightline." "gma." all live from philadelphia. then, a network special every night, led by george, 10:00 p.m. eastern. and gavel to gavel coverage on our online livestream channel. paula? >> thanks, dan. and now to the investigation into the deadly shooting rampage in munich. authorities are painting a very troubling portrait of the 18-year-old shooter. includes disturbing evidence equating this to a school shootings.
7:14 am
alex marquardt is there the morning. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, paula. evidence that the gunman was suffering from anxiety and depression. it's a picture of a disturbed young man that munich authorities this morning are painting of the 18-year-old who carried out this horrific attack, identified as ali sonboly. various prosecutors said he had been treated in a clinic for two months last year and took medication for depression and social anxiety. authorities also found what they called a manifesto, along with this book, "why kids kill" found during a raid on his apartment. a study of school shootings, including columbine and virginia tech. >> so what this shooter may have been doing, immersing himself in the world of mass killings and looking for people he could emulate. >> reporter: the police also saying there's an obvious link between the munich attack and the fifth anniversary of the
7:15 am
killings of 77 people by anders breivik. most of them at a youth camp. the young jerman-iranian opened fire at mcdonald's friday. the gunman had allegedly hacked into a girl's facebook account and tried to lure people to the center. a duke university senior, thamina stoll, was on her way to the center when people were fleeing. >> i could tell they were so scared. it was just terrifying. >> reporter: she ran upstairs and filmed the chaos from her grandmother's balcony. >> i can't even find words. it's just horrible. >> reporter: in all, nine people would be killed. almost all of them teenagers. before the attacker turned the gun on himself. his body found half a mile away from the scene with 300 more rounds in his backpack. as for that gun, a semiauto mattic glock, they found a chat
7:16 am
