tv Good Morning America Weekend Edition ABC March 5, 2017 7:00am-8:01am PST
good morning, america. and new this morning. where's the proof? the firestorm erupting over donald trump's explosive allegations, claiming president obama ordered the fbi to illegally tap his phones at trump tower. >> if it is true, it would be the biggest political scandal since watergate. >> the twitter rage that started it. and what the obama camp is saying this morning. white house turmoil. president trump reportedly going ballistic in the oval office. what set him off? cameras capturing an animated steve bannon, one of his top aides. why trump took off for florida. leaving him and chief of staff reince priebus behind. agony in mosul. residents fleeing isis' last stronghold in iraq. some, barefoot in their haste.
the raging battle with civilians caught in the middle. >> hundreds of thousands of people besieged by isis, starving to death. >> plus, the new evidence this morning of a possible chemical weapons attack. and new patdown procedures. why your airport screen may feel a lot different than before. >> someone who is inexperienced would be very -- could be very threatened. >> the reasons behind it. and who's in line to get one? and good morning, everyone. as you can see, dan harris not here. it's so nice to have tom llamas by my side. tom, thanks for coming in this morning. >> great to be here. busy sunday morning. >> certainly is. we want to get to our top stories. there's twitter video there of president trump in florida on saturday. the first and only images we have seen of him since his tweet storm yesterday. he's back on twitter this morning tweeting again. what he wrote yesterday has the world talking. >> it all started early
saturday. president trump taking to twitter and leveling a dangerous accusation against his predecessor, president barack obama. alleging, without any evidence, that the obama administration wiretapped trump tower during the campaign. >> the president comparing it to nixon and watergate. he called obama a quote, bad or sick guy, end quote. a spokesman for obama has denied the allegation. so where is trump getting his information? and if the allegations are true, how big could this scandal be? >> we have team coverage. martha raddatz is standing by but we start with brian ross. >> reporter: good morning, tom and paula. in its first reaction this morning the white house says trump wants an allegation about president obama. where the president got his information about the trump tower was bugged. the gloves are off this morning.
following president trump's accusation against president obama's alleged actions and integrity. only one of these two men will be proven right. as president, donald trump has used twitter to take on meryl streep. >> i'm the new boss. >> reporter: arnold schwarzenegger. >> are you a friendly reporter? >> reporter: the news media, including abc news. and "saturday night live." >> yes, this is real life, this is really happening. >> reporter: but his early morning accusations from his palm beach club, that his phones were wire-tapped by the obama administration, were by far of much greater consequence. terrible, he wrote, just found out that obama had my wires tapped just before the victory. nothing found. that was followed by four more presidential outbursts. taking on president obama and misspelling tap. how low has president obama gone to tap my phones during the very sacred election process. this is nixon/watergate. bad, or sick, guy. for anyone but the president, it would be a crime to reveal such a secret fbi wiretap on trump tower.
and no u.s. official contacted by abc news would confirm the allegation. >> it's an extremely serious offense. anyone who would reveal the existence of a wiretap would violate federal law. >> reporter: because the president cited no proof, it's not clear whether he based his allegations on a top secret white house briefing. or from reading an article on the conservative breitbart website. posted friday with detailed speculation from a conspiracy-loving talk show host, mark levin. >> how many of trump's people were eavesdropped on? how many had their conversations intercepted? recorded? transcribed? because this, ladies and gentlemen, is the big scandal. >> reporter: a spokesman for president obama quickly called the allegations false. one of obama's former national security aides, ben rhodes, responded to trump. no president can order a wiretap. those restrictions were put in place to protect citizens from people like you. it is true that under president obama, the fbi did open an
investigation into whether anyone in the trump campaign was working with the russians. if there had been an fbi wiretap about russian spies, it would have been approved by a special panel of three federal judges, not the white house. this morning, he's tweeting again, at 6:32. from palm beach writing is it true the dnc would not allow the fbi access to check server or other equipment after learning it was hacked. can that be possible? former dnc chair responded no, sir we cooperated with the bureau and reached out to the rnc to warn them with what we found out. >> we want to bring in kate shaw. an associate law professor and also a former lawyer for the obama white house. kate thanks for joining us. we're talking about a fisa order which stands for federal intelligence security act. it could only be issued by a court. brian just touched on it. what does it take to get that
wire tap? >> if you want a warrant wire tap, the fbi needs to establish there is probable cause to believe that a crime has been committed or there's an agent of a foreign government involved. if, in fact, an order was issued, it does suggest that probable cause was satisfied. >> president trump, legally did he do anything wrong talking about an investigation? >> i'm sure that there's a real interest in keeping the details of the investigation under wraps until such time as the investigators are ready to come forward with them. legally, they are normally classified proceedings. the president does have the power to declassify. there's nothing legally wrong with that if, in fact, that's what happened. we just don't know. >> senator graham was at a town hall yesterday. he said he's worried about these accusations. i want you to take a listen. >> if it is true, illegally -- [ laughter ]
it would be the biggest political scandal since watergate. >> now, the obama white house has said neither the former president nor the white house ordered a wiretap. but they're not explicitly saying that a wiretap didn't happen. if the allegations are true, could we compare this to watergate? >> watergate took a couple of years to play out in full. so i think -- it feels like we're kind of early in this saga. so i think it's hard to know how much like watergate any of this could look at the end of the day. the former president has denied personally directing a wiretap. it would be quite a scandal if a sitting president personally ordered one of a private citizen, let alone a presidential candidate. it does not sound like there's evidence to suggest that that occurred. what's clear is there are a lot of open questions, new questions based on yesterday's development. so, if anything, i think it heightens the need for some sort of independent investigation with someone at the head who has the credibility to produce findings that everyone can feel confident in. so i think that's sort of the main takeaway from yesterday.
>> we're talking about an independent investigation. thank you, kate. >> thank you. >> tom? now to reports of turmoil inside the white house. sources telling abc news the president had furious exchanges with senior staff inside the oval office. abc's david wright is in west palm beach with the president is spending the week end with what got president trump so fired up. >> reporter: good morning, tom. the president spent his saturday night huddled with attorney general jeff sessions and senior adviser steve bannon. the white house busily doing damage control, trying to put the russia story behind them, but clearly, struggling. on monday, the attorney general is expected to offer the senate judiciary committee a detailed explanation of his failure to tell the truth at his confirmation hearings when sessions denied having had any communications with russian officials on behalf of the trump campaign. >> in retrospect i should have slowed down, and said, but i did
meet one russian official a couple of times. >> reporter: senior white house sources tell abc news the president was so upset when sessions announced he'll recuse himself from any campaign-related investigations that trump went ballistic. according to sources, summoning his top aides for a meeting moments before his departure for florida. and erupting at them in anger. at 10:40 friday morning, marine one, prepped and waiting, a tv camera in the rose garden captured a glimpse of the tense scene unfolding inside the oval office. that's steve bannon gesturing furiously in that meeting. bannon and chief of staff reince priebus were both scheduled to accompany the president to florida. sources say after the meeting, the two of them volunteering to stay behind. white house sources say trump made it crystal clear that a week he had hoped would be a triumph --
>> we'll look back on tonight as when this new chapter of american greatness began. >> reporter: -- should instead end up mired in questions about the campaign's contacts with russian officials. quote, we should have had a good week. we should have had a good weekend. but once again, back to russia, that's how one senior official summed it all up. many trump supporters. still behind him. organizing the march for trump events. which met with counterdemonstrations in california and washington. as for the tense oval office meeting, bannon ended up making his own way down here to florida not on air force one. the white house cautioned us not to read too much into the fact that chief of staff reince priebus did not come down here. he always planned to spend saturday night and sunday in d.c. but the bottom line here -- the white house is struggling with its messaging. that's clearly a source of frustration. tom and paula? >> certainly is. david wright, thank you for your reporting from florida this morning.
so we want to bring in abc's chief global affairs correspondent, martha raddatz, joining us from washington where she'll host "this week" later this morning. martha, good morning to you. >> good morning. >> where do we begin? let's go back to the statement. from president obama's spokes person who said, quote -- neither president obama nor any white house official ever ordered surveillance on any u.s. citizen. now, martha, that's what the statement says. but what is it not saying? >> it's kind of what kate said to you. what it's not saying is whether or not there actually was a wiretap ordered through fisa. we don't really know that for sure. donald trump clearly thinks there was something ordered. some sort of wiretap ordered. but he has, as we have said all morning, not offered any proof. >> martha, the president gave a speech to congress on tuesday. by most accounts, a home run. how does this now slow his agenda? >> well, tom, you and i were both sitting here on this set on
tuesday night and talking about a pivot. that president trump was very presidential in that speech. he stuck to policy questions. he outlined his agenda. but, days later, he's the one who tweeted and changed all of that. and the focus is now on what he started and what he's accusing president obama of doing. so i think that speech seems about two months behind us now. >> it was only a couple of days ago. now, if trump was trying to change this subject from russia with this tweet storm, martha, did he succeed? >> boy, he sure did not. he may have put the focus back on himself. back on the investigation. maybe a little off jeff sessions and the recusal, which we're reporting he was apparently angry that he did recuse himself. but still, everyone is going to focus on russia because that's what the president of the united states keeps talking about. >> he certainly does. it's an understatement to say
you have a busy morning. >> we do. we're going to get the white house to talk about this. >> okay. look forward to it, martha. we'll let you get back to action. thanks, martha. as martha said, she's going to be going one on one with the trump and obama spokespeople. former obama press secretary josh earnest. republican representative sarah huckabee sanders. coming up on this week on abc with martha raddatz. >> let's turn to big travel news now. get ready for changes at airport security. the tsa is unveiling a new hands-on procedure. eva pilgrim has more on how all patdowns will be more thorough. >> reporter: this morning, a backlash. over the tsa rollout of its new plan for comprehensive patdown screenings. >> someone who is inexperienced would be very -- could be very threatened. would be traumatic. >> reporter: tsa officers used to evaluate the perceived risk associated with each passenger in question. and then choose one of five different patdown options. now there's one option.
a full patdown. airports across the country already putting out warnings. denver international saying the patdowns will be more thorough and may involve an officer making more intimate contact than before. >> no discretion. if you're going to pat someone down, you have to do it the same way. >> reporter: the tsa saying this is not a new style of patdown. this does not involve any different areas of the body than were screened in the previous procedure. this new plan comes two years after a report on the tsa finding some officers missed guns and other weapons during screenings. >> we know we're not carrying a concealed weapon. but they don't know. and they've got to find out. >> reporter: who gets the patdown? anyone who opts out of the standard screening. those who alarm the machines or a canine. and sometimes, it's just random. this new, more comprehensive screening is not supposed to cause any security delays unless you're the one getting the patdown. in that case, the tsa warning. be prepared. it will slow you down. paula?
>> maybe we should get to the airport earlier. eva, thank you. we want to move to the humanitarian crisis in iraq. thousands of civilians are fleeing mosul. as coalition forces battle isis for control. and some may have been exposed to chemical weapons. the united nations warning against war crimes. abc's jennifer eccleston reports from london. >> reporter: they're fleeing the terror group's last stronghold in iraq. the escape from western mosul so hasty, many residents leaving without shoes. iraqi forces and civilians facing a fierce pushback from isis, who have controlled the city for nearly three years. now evidence of a possible chemical weapons attack. a rocket landed on our house, this mother says. it exploded and sprayed us with oily material. she and her children, and seven other patients here showing signs of gas poisoning. an emergency response plan implemented by the world health
organization is now in effect. >> some people have breathing problems like a spasm, like in an asthma attack. and the majority of the patients have developed different size of blisters. >> reporter: the battle has raged for five months. the iraqis are taking back the city. but the advance is slow. workers with preemptive love an american charity operating in mosul, paint a dire picture. >> the hardest thing that we're seeing right now across this conflict is hundreds of thousands of people besieged by isis starving to death. >> reporter: thousands more remain trapped behind isis lines, waiting for any chance to escape. jennifer eccleston, abc news, london. >> the global community wanting to know what they can do to help. humanitarian organizations are operating completely independently, autonomously from the u.n. going where the u.n. can't reach at this point. completely funded by private citizens, civilians like you and
i. but they're the first international humanitarian organization to reach that particular area in mosul, which is isis' stronghold. isis doing everything they can to hold on. >> we can see it. these families dealing with chemical attacks. war. mother nature with the mud and rain. it's incredible. organizations are needed. >> they're doing the brave work so few of us are willing to do. so kudos to them. all right. let's turn now to weather and rob, and a lot going out there, right, rob? >> yeah, tom. especially the cold air. for many, this morning is the coldest morning of 2017. look at the wind chills. minus 8 in boston. that's the coldest morning for sure since december for you. 7 is what it feels like in new york city. 20s in the deep south. wind chill advisories almost down into the new york city area. this is dangerous stuff across northern new england and upstate new york. freeze warnings across the carolinas. we had all the warm air. a lot of the trees and plants are blooming early. so they're going to do some damage there. on the backside, big-time warmup temperatures. 60s and 70s today.

welcome back to "gma." happening right now, where's the proof? president trump accusing former president obama of spying on him at trump tower by wire-tapping his phones and offering no evidence or even what prompted those allegations. a spokesman for obama firing back, saying neither the former president nor the obama white house ordered any such surveillance. also right now. vice president mike pence taking to twitter to demand an apology from the associated press after the news agency published his wife's private e-mail address. the address was disclosed earlier this week while reporting on the use of the vice president's aol account to conduct state business while the governor of indiana. and fashion magazine "vogue" is hitting news stands in the middle east. launching its first edition of "vogue arabia." the inaugural issue.

that was his goal. >> reporter: that's prosecutor craig williams. he's accusing brian claypool, the defense attorney representing dalia dippolito in her second murder for hire trial, of trying to taint potential jurors in dippolito's upcoming third trial, with media appearances like these. >> you tell me if that's not motive. oh, good. good. tell them, we can't wait. they want to make sure that they reach the right decision in the case. >> reporter: in court documents, the prosecution accusing claypool of threatening the right to an impartial jury. indicating the press conferences and statements serve no legitimate purpose other than to improperly influence potential jurors. they want him off the case. dippolito's counsel is firing back. accusing them of trying to deprive her of the right to counsel of her own choosing. >> when you request removal of chosen counsel, that's a very weighty issue. and one i'm not going to shoot from the hip on. >> we were not conducting press
conferences on daily basis. the media would ask us what happened during the day. >> reporter: it's the alleged murder for hire plot that went viral. reality tv cameras rolling as the police in florida staged a crime scene to deliver this news to the 34-year-old. >> is your husband michael? i'm sorry to tell you, ma'am. he's been killed. >> reporter: but michael was not dead. and investigators say her reaction was all for show. dippolito was convicted and sentenced to 20 years in prison in 2011. despite her attorneys arguing it was all just a scheme to launch the couple into reality tv stardom. >> it was a stunt. it was a hoax. >> reporter: that conviction was thrown out. and her second trial ended in a hung jury. >> did you want your husband dead? >> no. absolutely not. >> reporter: and the judge in the case says he'll consider the prosecutor's request and another request for a gag order. that would prevent either side from talking to the media until the trial is over.
and the judge says he'll issue a ruling in the coming days. pretty extraordinary to remove a defense attorney but could happen. >> certainly is. ron, thank you for bringing us that story this morning. rob marciano back. we were talking about fires in the plains yesterday. it's still going on today? >> it is. we've been talking about the cold winds across the northeast. on the other side, it's been warm, dry winds across the central u.s. fires across oklahoma. this one just outside wichita, kansas. dealing with the grass fires. over 200,000 acres burned this year alone. we're ahead of schedule. we haven't gotten to the middle of march. we have fire alerts and wind warnings. energy coming into the west. winds could crank 30, 40, maybe 50 miles an hour in the next 24 hours. and then as this front comes on board, we may see severe weather, too. a threat more so tomorrow as this bumps into some of that warm air and some of those thunderstorms could become severe in the way of straight-line winds. maybe a couple of tornados.

i was absolutely hooked. i thought it was the coolest thing in the world. the dream started to develop in my mind. i'm going to run the iditarod. >> reporter: the trail, while beautiful, is no easy feat. mushers battle minus 40 degrees temperature, barren terrain. with little resources. >> it's been fun. a lot of work. there's a steep learning curve. it is not just standing on the back of the runners. >> reporter: but professionals make it look easier than it is. there you go. i got the chance to try my mushing skills on for size with chris hoffman, a former iditarod racer who shared a few key pointers about the race. >> first rule of dog mushing, don't let go. second rule of dog mushing, don't let go. >> reporter: when you're on the trail, behind the dogs, it's easy to leave behind the training. and the stress of the competition. >> the key is, you feel beat up and broken down. it's the dogs, they're the ones that want to keep going. the stars of the show. >> reporter: it's truly an incredible sensation and one
