good morning. i'm kendis gibson. >> i'm diane macedo. here are some of the top headlines we're following on "world news now." president trump is under fire from members of his own party, getting called out for untruthfulness by senators jeff flake and bob corker. flake announced his surprise retirement and warned colleagues about being complicit in undermining american values. we have full coverage ahead. two congressional investigations involving hillary clinton are now under way. republican lawmakers are looking into the fbi's handling of the inquiry into her private e-mail server and they're trying to figure out if russian donations to the clinton foundation influenced a deal during the obama years. justin turner's home run for the dodgers was the difference in last night's first game of the world series. l.a. beat the astros, 3-1.
2:31 am

2:32 am
scapegoat. and flake told colleagues that now is the time to risk their careers. >> when the next generation asks us, why didn't you do something? why didn't you speak up? what are we going to say? the personal attacks, the threats against principles, freedoms and institution. the flagrant disregard for truth and decency. the reckless provocations, most often for the pettiest and most personal reasons, when such behavior emanates from the top of our government, it is something else. it is dangerous to a democracy. we have fooled ourselves for long enough that a pivot to governing is right around the corner. a return to civility and stability right behind it. we know better than that. mr. president, i rise today to say enough. >> his fellow senator, john
2:33 am
mccain, called him a man of honor integrity and decency. senator flake continues and writes in the washington post. >> he writes nine months of this administration is enough for us to stop pretending that it's somehow normal and that we're on the verge of some sort of pivot to governing, to stability. nine months is more than enough for us to say i loudly and clearly, enough. >> and he finishes by writing this. for the next 14 months, relieved of the structures of politics, i will be guided only by the dictates of conscience. so as a gop civil war comes to a boil, these blistering attacks by flake and corker are considered a rebuke by members of his own party. >> for more insight on what it all means, let's turn to abc news political director rick klein. good morning. >> this is a major moment in the republican party and a major moment in the trump presidency. senators corker and jeff flake are now out in the open saying things that no republican senator has ever been free to say before.
2:34 am
it's not just that they are free to speak their minds and not running for re-election, but they are free to vote their conscience. that has big implications for the rest of the trump agenda. starting with the tax push. he has a 52-48 edge party wise. he can only lose two senators. that's how many are saying he is essentially unfit for office. this is a moment that there are no turning back from. it may free up other republican senators to say and do similar things. diane and kendis? >> our thanks to rick. and most republicans did, however, manage to agree to hand the victory to the nation's banks. >> vice president mike pence cast the final vote to break a 50/50 tie in the senate to repeal an obama-era banking law that would have allowed consumers to join class action lawsuit toes sue their banks or credit card companies. >> republicans say the law would have harmed the free market. senators lindsey graham and kennedy broke with their party in voting against the bill. we're also getting a look at what may be a new piece of the puzzle into the deadly ambush on troops in niger. investigators are combing

3:02 am
going. it's the hottest it's ever been to start a world sear ris game. and the dodgers were hot from the very beginning. in the bottom of the first, chris taylor gave them the lead with the solo home run, that makes 1-0 and it stays there until the fourth when the score was tied with another home run. >> dodgers' starting pitcher, clayton kershaw is actually pretty good. he was smooth through seven innings, struck out 11 astros. but the game ate biggest play came when the birdied wonder, l.a.'s red headed nome, justin turner slammed that two-run homer in the sixth. >> i knew i hit it really high and i knew it was about 98 degrees. when it's that hot here, the ball does travel a lot better. if it's 10 degrees cooler that's a routine ball left field.
3:03 am
>> i know heat rises. i didn't know that applied to baseball, too. the dodgers win 3-1. last night wasn't only the hottest world series ever. at 2 hours, with 28 minutes, it was the fastest played since 1992. >> wow, so a very fast game. game two is tonight in los angeles. justin verlander, you may have heard of his girlfriend, he's going to face off l.a.'s rich hill, relatively freezing temperatures in the mid-90s. >> the guy's an all-star pitcher and he is most famous for his -- >> best known for kate upton. so all this heat got us thinking. what's the coldest world series game ever played? can you guess? it took place in cleveland on october 22nd, 1997, between the indians and marlins, 35 degrees with wind chills dipping to 18. >> wow. >> indians won that game 10-3 but did lose the series. no help from the weather in those home runs. >> what was the heat index at that game? >> 93.

3:05 am
>> the threats against principles, freedoms and institution, the flagrant disregard for truth and decency. the reckless provocations, most often for the pettiest and most personal reasons. when such behavior emanates from the top of our government, it is something else. it is dangerous to a democracy. we have fooled ourselves for long enough that a pivot to governing is right around the corner. a return to civility, civility and stability right behind it. we know better than that. mr. president, i rise today to say enough. >> reporter: the white house dismissed the comments of both flake and another republican senator, bob corker. >> i think that they were not likely to be re-elected. and i think that shows that the support is more behind this president than it is those two individuals. >> reporter: earlier in the day, senator corker said president trump who he had supported in the election failed to rise to the occasion as president.
