7:00 am
good morning, america. dangerous heat wave. scorching temperatures spreading across the country. record highs topping into the 90s from the rocky mountains to the east coast. and the new warning, when will the heat break? overnight, president trump's family joins him in the white house as he faces a new lawsuit over his global business empire that takes millions in payments from foreign governments. all this as he takes on fired fbi director james comey calling him cowardly. now his attorney general prepares to take the hot seat before the senate. major air scare overnight. a massive hole ripping through a passenger plane's engine during takeoff. >> all of a sudden it got really loud and it was like da, da, da. >> forcing the flight to turn around. the investigation right now. and the tony's taking center stage. bette midler's big win overnight.
7:01 am
>> i'd like to thank all the tony voters, many of whom i've actually dated. >> her marathon speech refusing to be played off by the music. ♪ >> shut that crap off. i just want to thank -- >> plus, the "dear evan hansen" and "pitch perfect" star -- ♪ step out >> ben platt owning the night. what a night at the tony's with bette midler and also ben platt. what he had to say was so incredibly touching. he said for any young people watching at home, don't waste any time trying to be like anybody else because the things that make you strange are the things that make you powerful. >> he had a powerful performance as well. >> won six tonys last night. >> hard to get a ticket now. >> big night for everybody at the tony's. a big week for the president because his family is finally
7:02 am
moving with him into the white house. >> they moved in last night. the president facing a new lawsuit. we'll get more on that ahead but first that scorching heat wave. record highs from the midwest to east coast and rob marciano is outside the studio. rob, we are feeling it. >> just a week ago we were in the 50s so a rude awakening. for many this is day two, three and maybe four of 98 plus degree heat. check it out from denver all the way to chicago, st. louis and, yes, the northeast, new england records in burlington and caribou over 90 degrees yesterday and more records today. with that across the bigger cities air quality alerts from d.c., philly, new york, could be mid-90s. limit your outdoor activity if you can and drink lots of water and grab shade if you can. another component with this, severe weather. we had it yesterday in wisconsin. look at this roof being blown off. 70-mile-an-hour winds and 80 mile an hour winds in minneapolis and at one point over 100,000 people without power. we have another threat today for severe weather.
7:03 am
we're going to highlight that for you in just a few minutes. george back inside to you. >> a week or so but it is here. another busy week in washington. president trump facing a new lawsuit over his businesses and foreign payments. this as the first lady and barron are waking up in the white house moving in over the weekend to join president trump there full time now that barron is out of school. all eyes are on attorney general jeff sessions as he prepares to testify about the russia investigation tomorrow. this as president trump faces new questions about a conversations with fired fbi director james comey. let's go to our chief white house correspondent, jon karl for more on all this. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, robin. and on top of all that, the president faces a new lawsuit this morning that is unprecedented in american history. overnight the d.c. attorney general's office confirmed to abc news that d.c. and maryland will sue president trump today alleging a breach of anti-corruption clauses in the constitution.
7:04 am
in the lawsuit which was first reported by "the washington post," the attorneys general allege the president has broken his promises to separate his public duties from his private businesses. it's the first time a state government has filed such a lawsuit against a president. meanwhile it was first daughter ivanka trump standing up for her father. >> my father felt very vindicated and all the statements he's been making and feels optimistic. >> the president escaped washington for the weekend spending time in his new jersey golf club. but james comey was still very much on his mind. i believe that james comey leaks will be far more prevalent than anyone ever thought possible he tweeted sunday morn asking totally illegal? very cowardly. in his testimony comey acknowledged he asked a friend to share with a reporter contents of a memo he wrote about a confidential conversation he had with the president.
7:05 am
>> this is the president speaking, i hope you can see your way clear to letting this go to letting flynn go. now those are his exact word, is that correct. >> correct. >> reporter: the president told me he firmly denies comey's version of events. >> i didn't say that. >> reporter: so he lied about that? >> well, i didn't say that i mean i will tell you i didn't say that. >> reporter: and did he ask you to pledge -- >> and there would be nothing wrong if i did say it according to everybody i've read today but i did not say that. >> reporter: and the president said he'd be willing to swear that he is the one telling the truth. so if robert mueller wanted to speak with you about that -- >> i would be glad to tell him what i told you. >> reporter: now calling on president trump to tell his side of the story to congress. >> this is serious stuff. we have the former director of the fbi under oath saying one thing. president trump saying another. >> reporter: there's one way to definitively know the truth. it's the president who once suggested there may be recordings of his conversations. when will you tell us about the recordings? >> over a fairly short period of
7:06 am
time. >> the president's legal team by the way says we'll have an answer to that question about the recordings this week. meanwhile, attorney general jeff sessions will be testifying before the senate intelligence committee tomorrow. %-p will be public or private. >> that's right, a lot of legal questions, jon, thanks very much. for more we're joined by the independent counsel who investigated bill clinton, ken starr. thank you for joining us this morning. i want to start out by putting yourself in robert mueller's shoes. you've been there before. after last week's comey testimony and the president's response, would you be investigating possible obstruction of justice? >> oh, you have to look at everything. in light of what the director said in his testimony, you've got to analyze it. so, the short answer is you gather all the facts, you assess all the facts it looks as if it is going to be, george, a he said versus a he said situation but, yeah, you have to look at
7:07 am
everything. that's the job of the special counsel. >> he said/he said. do you think james comey would lie under oath? >> i'm not going to say anyone is lying. people have different recollections of the very same conversation. the key, though, is what even if the president said what the director said he said, does that, in fact, constitute either obstruction of justice or another crime? and i don't think it's even close at this stage. we shall see. there is a requirement of corrupt intent. moreover the word hope, even though it was taken by the director as a directive was not acted upon by the director as if he had been given an order. >> can i stop you there -- >> also say this, george -- the director -- >> doesn't the fact that the president kicked everyone else out of the room, the attorney general, the vice president and his staff at least suggest corrupt intent? >> not necessarily corrupt
7:08 am
intent. it suggests unwisdom, we're using trump tower methodology here to carry on business in washington. that's unwise. i just don't think at this stage we're anywhere near a crime, nonetheless, we have to investigate it. that's what mueller, bob mueller who is a great man and a terrific lawyer, honest is the day is long is going to be doing. i will say this, for the director of the fbi to feel as if he's been given a directive he should have immediately reported that at a minimum to the inspector general and called the white house counsel. he should have said i believe i am being directed to do something that's utterly inappropriate. he did not take any of the steps that a reasonable director of the fbi in my judgment would have taken. >> you say robert mueller is honest as the day is long. you have some of the president's defenders now calling the whole investigation into question because of mueller's friendship with james comey. newt gingrich thinks it's going to be a witch-hunt.
7:09 am
is that a legitimate fear? do you think mueller is compromised by his relationship with comey? >> no, i don't think that there is a legitimate concern about bob mueller. he has decades of very distinguished record of complete integrity. in washington, d.c. people know one another. it's just the way it is. but bob mueller has the integrity and the ability to make judgments to call them as he sees them. he will be a very fair umpire plus the check and balance, george, of the senate intelligence committee which is very ably chaired by senator burr, senator warren. the ranking minority member. that seems to be doing a superb job, as well. >> i spoke with one of the president's attorneys yesterday who didn't refuse to rule out the possibility that the president at some point might direct his deputy attorney general rod rosenstein to fire bob mueller. what would that mean? >> it would be a very serious action but it would again depend
7:10 am
on the facts. what is it that bob mueller did that would justify this sort of thing. firing special prosecutors tends not to work as we learned from watergate so it would be very wise to allow the special counsel to do his work. you'll see he is the one person in washington we're not hearing from. he has his head down. he's doing his job. he's assembled by the way a fantastic team. that is a great, great team of complete professionals, so let's let him do his job. >> finally we had the lawsuit from the attorneys general of maryland and washington, d.c. about those foreign payments to the president's corporation. they say it's a violation of the emoluments clause. how serious a charge is this to president trump? >> you got to take any litigation seriously but allegations are allegations. now, in my 40 years of practicing law, i've seen a lot of allegations that have blown up in smoke. >> ken starr, thanks very much for your time this morning. >> my pleasure. robin. >> all right, george, we bring in our chief political analyst matthew dowd. you were listening intently.
7:11 am
what jumped out to you most? >> a couple of things. we know he is a conservative republican and he's reticent to go too far but basically said you have to investigate anything that's even coming close to obstruction of justice. that we have to wait for the facts to come to bear and that bob mueller is a very, very credible and we should trust what he's going to do in this investigation so like everybody, i know democrats want to come to a certain conclusion, republicans are already coming to conclusions everything is fine but we actually just need to let this go. as i said yesterday on "this week," this is like cleaning our your garage, just in the pull your car out and find out where the mess is. >> we have to continue working in washington and everywhere and last week was infrastructure week. this week the administration is focusing on job creation with the workforce development week. how do they go about still getting work done with all that's going on? >> the only people in the world that think it was infrastructure week with people in the white house because everybody thought it was comey week.
7:12 am
who knows what this week will be. the white house may have some idea but the problem is, abc used to have movie of the week. every week there was a movie of the week. this white house is trying to do a movie of the week but the lead actor keeps going off the plot and the lead actor is donald trump. and whether he wants to do -- whatever that is. last week he was tweeting about comey doing that. if you want to do a movie of the week or infrastructure you got to stick to it. >> i think both sides agree on that point that he has difficulty staying on script if you will. >> yeah, he has very difficult time staying on script. >> jeff sessions, we know he will be testifying tomorrow. still unclear if it's going to be public or closed. what do you expect? >> i think it's significant that he will testify because there's a lot of questions to be answered in that. my guess is republicans want it to be private and closed. democrats want it to be open. they may cut a deal which is what likely happens which is we'll do a segment of this in public and a segment in private. i was thinking about lady antebellum is on this show later
7:13 am
in the show. they have a great song called "i run to you." in the song says when lies become the truth i run to you and i think everybody ought to keep that in mind. when lies become the truth we have to figure out where we run to. >> does all this come to you, lady "a." is this on the fly? >> useless information constantly flows. >> thanks, guys. we move to an insider attack that left three soldiers dead in afghanistan. officials say they were killed by an afghan soldier raising questions about the war as president trump considers sending more troops and martha raddatz is here. martha, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, george. right as the white house is deciding whether to send more americans into afghanistan, a devastating attack on u.s. soldiers. apparently by one of the afghan soldiers they are there to assist. the afghan soldier opening fire on the americans, two were killed immediately. the third after he was evacuated.
7:14 am
another american was also wounded. this is one of the most dangerous provinces in afghanistan. 3 other americans were killed there this year. we have about 8400 americans still in afghanistan and president trump is weighing whether to add several thousand more. commanders have said we are in a stalemate there but in the past president trump called for the u.s. to get out and certainly, george, these most recent deaths and the massive suicide bombing in kabul will be taken into consideration. >> yeah, he seemed -- >> when he makes his decision. >> he seems reluctant to go there. on another front a u.s. air strike in somalia against islamic fundamentalists. part of a new more aggressive policy under president trump. >> it is. we have 50 in somalia advising this was a drone strike targeting an al shabaab and logistics camp that left eight dead. back in march president trump designated a part of somalia, an
7:15 am
active area of hostilities for if next six means meaning the u.s. military is now allowed to carry out air strikes if there is a reasonable certainty. no civilians will be hurt george. >> the new standard. martha raddatz, thanks very much. michael. we turn to bill cosby's showdown in court and the defense making their case for the first time this morning and abc's linsey davis is outside the courthouse in pennsylvania. good morning, linsey. >> reporter: good morning, michael. yes, of course, a very big day for the defense as it begins to lay out its case in defense of bill cosby. it's not clear just yet who they will call to the witness stand, of course, prior to the start of the trial, we heard bill cosby say that he did not plan to testify. the prosecution rested its case friday after calling 12 witnesses including, of course, andrea constand who is at the heart of this case, cosby has pleaded not guilty to drugging and sexually assaulting the former temple university employee. it's also quite possible closing arguments could begin as early as today.
7:16 am
one local defense attorney said if cosby's lawyer, he is the best closer i have ever seen. this is sinatra at madison square garden in '74. another big headline, abc news has learned that camille cosby, bill cosby's wife of 53 years escorting her husband into court today. this will, of course, be the first time that we have seen her at the trial. michael. >> all right, linsey, camille joining him in court is a huge development. has she made a statement or if not can we expect her to? >> reporter: yeah, two years ago she did release a written statement where she defended her husband and said, he is the man you thought you knew. today i would imagine a statement is unlikely but we'll see. >> all right, thank you, linsey davis and we'll keep an eye on that. amy has the morning's other top stories. >> good morning. church bells around orlando will ring at noon today to mark one year since the pulse nightclub massacre. a procession of angels overnight

7:35 am
he was punched in the stomach. later, his stomach filled up with blood. he was hit in the face. he was body slammed. people stepped over him by their own admissions. they saw him lying in a fetal position on the floor and they would just step over him. what's happening today is a preliminary hearing. and during that, the judge will decide very simply, is there a fact issue? is there enough evidence that this needs to go to a jury and let them decide? i predict it will be sent to a jury. and, robin, when you hear the lawyers say there was no intent, that's not helping them. because these fraternity brothers are charged among many other charges with involuntary manslaughter, which means you don't have to have intent. specifically, you don't have intent to kill. it's when you do something so reckless or so negligent, it results in a death.
7:36 am
that's what it's all about. >> nancy, is there no doubt that that video will be shown because we know that those charged, their attorney, of course, do not want that to be the case. >> well, i guess not. you're right about that. they do not want that video shown. but it will be shown. not just because it shows what happened that evening, and the way this was all disregarded, but that video, believe it or not, they tried to erase it the morning after during the cover-up which is so damning. a cover-up makes everything worse and there is this app where you can talk to each other called groupme, and there are conversations that, of course, the police could pull up where they're trying to delete texts where they say timothy is going to be a problem, guys. where they tell each other to lie to police, to clean the house, to get rid of alcohol and to tell police that timothy's health was paramount.

>> it was hard. i won't say it was easy because it wasn't, but i made it through it. >> reporter: lawyers with the innocence project are not only amazed at their resemblance, but have the same legal name. it's important to note the other man, rickie amos, was not found guilty and was not incarcerated at the time of the hearing. jones is enjoying family, keeping his faith in god and wants to work with the innocence project to give freedom to others. george. >> any chance he can be retried for it? >> there is a possibility but it's very, very slim. the judge in this case was impressed with the new evidence and the fact that any reasonable juror would not have chosen him in a lineup so, again, very unlikely. >> adrienne, thanks very much. over to michael. thank you, george and coming up on our big board, a big shake-up under way at uber. why the ceo may be taking a leave of absence. and tonight is the night. the cavs, can they keep golden state from winning it all? that is the question. also, the fallout after one of the golden state warriors
7:43 am
players insulted the cavs fans. we're going to hear what he's saying now. we're back in two minutes. fallout after one of the golden state warriors players insulted the cavs fans. we're going to hear what he's saying now. we're back in two minutes. atblue diamond almonds wein our almondmilk.ia-grown and we're proud of that. but the whole "care-and-nurturing" part? that idea... ...we borrowed from the experts. blue diamond almond breeze. the best almonds make the best almondmilk. fleas, ticks and mosquitoes. got any ideas?ting you? not all products work the same. my owner gives me k9 advantix ii. it kills all three through contact. no biting required. so they don't have to bite?
7:44 am
that's right. no biting required. k9 advantix ii. wise choice. be the you who doesn't cover your moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. be the you who shows up in that dress. who hugs a friend. who is done with treatments that don't give you clearer skin. be the you who controls your psoriasis with stelara® just 4 doses a year after 2 starter doses. stelara® may lower your ability to fight infections and may increase your risk of infections and cancer. some serious infections require hospitalization. before treatment, get tested for tuberculosis. before starting stelara® tell your doctor if you think you have an infection or have symptoms such as: fever, sweats, chills, muscle aches or cough. always tell your doctor if you have any signs of infection, have had cancer, if you develop any new skin growths or if anyone in your house needs or has recently received a vaccine. alert your doctor of new or worsening problems, including headaches, seizures, confusion and vision problems these may be signs of a rare, potentially fatal brain condition. some serious allergic reactions can occur. do not take stelara® if you are allergic to stelara® or any of its ingredients. most people using stelara® saw 75% clearer skin and the majority were rated as cleared or minimal at 12 weeks.
7:45 am
be the you who talks to your dermatologist about stelara®. we are back with our big board. rebecca jarvis, fresh back from sweden. all those great pictures that you sent. we'll start with what could be a major shake-up at uber. the ride-hailing giant reportedly considering a forced leave of absence for its ceo, travis kalanick after the company's reputation faced a series of recent scandals including kalanick being caught on tape arguing with an uber driver. we know that the board of directors have met. what are you hearing? >> well, they spent a number of hours meeting yesterday, robin. this is a company in crisis at this moment, and this really started earlier in the year when a former employee and engineer, susan fowler, wrote a blog post describing rampant sexism and sexual harassment at the company talking about superiors who were
7:46 am
totally crossing the line and tote atlee crossing the line and a company that looked the other way. the suggestions yesterday were about what to do and what this company does as it moves forward. >> uber stood beside their ceo despite his missteps, but what could happen if they part ways? >> as robin said, michael, at the beginning there's a question now about his future inside of this company and that question has been taken somewhat slightly to the internet where there is a website now called istravisstillceo.com. it says right now if you check it this morning, yes, for now. the question is, how does this company move forward? because the description of allegations right now really make it look like this is rampant. he is the leader of this company. what happens next, that's the question they're discussing and we're going to get more details tomorrow. >> and, of course, we know he's gone through a lot of personal things with his mother and father being in an accident. >> a terrible tragedy. >> yeah. mother dying. we know that former attorney general eric holder has been tapped by uber to look into these allegations that you have been talking about. so where does that stand do you think?
7:47 am
>> what we know is that all of these allegations eric holder has looked into them. the board yesterday decided unanimously to vote and adopt all the recommendations in the holder report. they're going to be released to employees tomorrow. and the question really is this company's culture going forward, from a driver experience, it might change things. the drivers who drive for uber might see things change, but from a rider experience and customer experience, you might not see a big change, but it's a big one coming for the company. >> thank you, rebecca. now we turn to tonight's big basketball showdown. golden state on the verge of winning it all. they're up 3-1 in the series against the cleveland cavaliers who avoided a sweep with a 21-point blowout on friday. game five is kicking off in oakland and espn's bruce bowen is joining us now and, bruce, the cavs, they showed some grit, seven technical fouls in the game so what is the strategy now? just be physical?
7:48 am
make it a slugfest. what do you think about that? >> i like the strategy. they've tried other strategies. they tried to run with golden state. that didn't work. they came back home in game three, and they still tried to run with golden state. that didn't work. so now you're running out of options, michael. you know that as a defensive player, you got to bring some fight to the game. you got to bring that grit. this is an east coast style play. they are accustomed to doing that. they are not accustomed to the golden state warriors. you have to try to effect kevin durant and his onslaught is the only way. >> trying to slow down kd. >> nobody says -- >> i know. he's got the eyebrow. element like a rock. we know the game is in oakland tonight. i don't think that they wanted to go back to cleveland, especially after what draymond green said about the cavs' fans not being the sharpest i mean, come on. that can only get the other side fired up. >> now, robin, i know you played
7:49 am
basketball, and you didn't want to give your opponents billboard material. that's what that is. they are talking about my city? they are talking about my fans? that's how cleveland responds to it. but i'll say this to you. draymond green owned up to every single word he said. it wasn't one of those someone hacked my account. i don't know how it happened. he owned up to it, and when you have a player that focused, he is the heart and soul of that group. when he can own up to those things, it sends a message to the other players, hey, we got to come out here and get things done. >> obviously to make that statement he doesn't believe cleveland can come back and win the series. no team has ever done it from being down 3-0. do you think the cavaliers can shock the world and make history? >> i believe this, michael, that if there's any team that can do it, it is the cleveland cavaliers. we saw it last year. >> yes. we did last year. >> when you have this team, this group they can reflect on last year. now, it will shock the world, but will it be shocking if lebron james happens to do something like this?
7:50 am
this is a young man who went back home because he wanted to bring a championship to cleveland, and i must do it right now, michael. cleveland, this is for you! >> we can't top that. we can't top that. bruce, thank you. rebecca, thank you. i got to tell you, one of the perks of being off the last two weeks being up late and watching the games. you can see game five of the nba tonight at 9:00 p.m. eastern on abc. coming up, a health alert about anxiety. what's causing a rise in some cases? and katy perry opening up about her feud with taylor swift, and she has got that exclusive announcement, doesn't she? >> yes, it's right here. >> on "gma." that exclusive announcement, doesn't she? >> yes, it's right here. >> on "gma." y 3-month old busin. plus...what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? so i made a point to talk to my doctor. he told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots
7:51 am
and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. eliquis had both... ...and that turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you. only new tena intimates has ♪ it'pro-skin technologyiend
