7:00 am
that's it. we brewed the love, right guys? (all) yes. good morning, america. breaking overnight, the russia investigation bombshell. reports that the first charges have now been filed from the probe led by special counsel robert mueller looking into russian meddling in the presidential election. is the first arrest now just days away? deadly storm. the first round of winter weather hitting hard in the midwest. blizzard-like conditions plus the big coastal storm ready to strike the northeast with heavy rain and high winds. who is in the bull's-eye. pulling ahead. the astros take the lead in the world series beating the dodgers in front of a thrilled home crowd. >> the astros take it. >> reporter: but the victory marred by this dugout gesture. the uproar and what this player is saying this morning.
7:01 am
and breaking overnight, an air scare for one nba team. the oklahoma city thunder's rocky postgame flight. players taking these pictures and tweeting thunder strong, so what did they hit? hey, good morning. we got the whole team here on set this morning. paula is off today. very happy though to have ace white house correspondent cecilia vega joining us this morning. >> absolutely. >> good morning to you. >> on a big political headline day, good to be here with you guys. >> absolutely as we take a look at a live shot of the white house. we're going to start with the breaking news that is almost certainly causing reverberations right there in that building. >> very little doubt about that. we are talking about that reported bombshell on the russia investigation. cnn says a grand jury has approved the first criminal charges in the investigation led by special counsel robert mueller. >> we've got team coverage this morning, and we start with abc's senior justice correspondent
7:02 am
pierre thomas, who is in washington leading us off. pierre, good morning to you. >> reporter: dan, good morning. cnn is reporting that mueller's special counsel team has brought charges before a grand jury. we know that attorneys from mueller's office were at the federal courthouse here in d.c. on friday including one of his senior prosecutors who specializes in fraud cases. we've learned that there was a filing in court on friday, but we have no further reportable details. cnn's not reporting who might have been charged or what the charges could be. so this is a very unusual situation, and it's unclear how significant these -- this potential action might be, dan. what we know is that mueller's team has been investigating whether there was collusion between the trump campaign and russian officials in connection with the 2016 presidential election, and he's been investigating the financial dealings of a number of key trump associates including former campaign manager paul manafort and former national security adviser michael flynn. sources close to manafort say they have been given no indication any charges against him are imminent. we reached out to people tied to
7:03 am
flynn and got no comment, but this is a reminder that mueller's investigation is sweeping, complicated, and those who are being investigated are in legal jeopardy. >> absolutely, pierre. thank you. and given the near daily drip on this russia story, it is easy to lose context of it all. >> yeah, so let's bring in abc's gloria riviera with a look at what led up to these charges. gloria, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dan, good morning, cecilia. as you know, president trump has long dismissed the russia probe as a witch-hunt, but new reports indicate the special counsel's investigation could be turning a new corner reportedly issuing the first charges that could implicate the president's own associates. president trump has long dismissed the russia probe as nothing more than a political distraction. >> the whole russia thing was an excuse for the democrats losing the election, and it turns out to be just one excuse. >> reporter: and that message continues to the party line at the white house. >> our position hasn't changed since day one, and i think we are seeing now that if there was any collusion with russia, it
7:04 am
was between the dnc and the clintons and certainly not our campaign. >> reporter: questions are mounting over separate reports by cnn and "the wall street journal" saying the first criminal charges have been filed in independent counsel bob mueller's investigation into the trump campaign's alleged ties to the russian government. the indictments are reportedly still sealed under orders from a federal judge. abc news has not independently matched that reporting. the news comes at a time when we're also learning more about who was behind that infamous intelligence dossier alleging ties between trump and the russians. the conservative website "the washington free beacon" said friday that it originally hired the research firm fusion gps to provide research on multiple candidates but insists it did not pay for the dossier and did not have any dealings with the former british intelligence officer who ultimately produced the dossier citing russian sources. >> it might have started with the republicans early on in the primaries. i think i would know, but let's
7:05 am
find out who it is. i'm sure that will come out. >> do you know who those republicans are? do you have any idea? >> i think -- i think i would have -- if i were to guess, i have one name in mind. >> reporter: the house intelligence committee says it is working with "the free beacon" to verify its claims it had no involvement with the dossier and the man who produced it. cecilia, dan. >> gloria, thank you. cecilia, i want to bring you in on this since you cover the white house every day. what do you think -- how are they reacting to this news about the first charges from mueller? >> well, certainly the public front is that everything is calm, business as usual. one aide last night was tweeting it's a quiet night at the white house. and certainly they're not going to back down from this claim that this is a witch-hunt. that is the narrative. the president was tweeting on it yesterday saying there is no collusion between the russians and me. that is the public reaction. i can tell you from speaking to a lot of sources inside this white house that people are nervous in that they're lawyering up. the president has picked up the tab for some of those lawyers. this is an investigation that is certainly circling in and closing in on some aides
7:06 am
close to the president and know these questions and know this investigation is not going away so privately people are definitely starting to feel this. >> lots of lawyers involved. for more on all this, let's bring in abc news political commentator cokie roberts, who is in washington. cokie, let me ask you, how nervous do you think the white house should be? >> well, once these special prosecutors start going, it's very unsettling for white houses, and grand juries leak, and we start to learn lots of information, and, unfortunately, though, for the principals, they don't leak enough. and so what you have is a lot of speculation and a lot of finger-pointing without a lot of facts, and that goes on for months and months and months often, and that can be very disspiriting to a white house because they're trying to get something done, and they're constantly having to worry about this investigation, and i think that's likely to go on for a long time. >> and it's certainly on their minds if the president's tweets
7:07 am
are any indication, cokie, but i want to ask you about something else that was in the news and has been at the top of all of our newscasts here. those files that were just released in the jfk assassination. you have some personal experience with that. what do you think will come of all this? >> well, my father was on the warren commission, and i do remember actually him being on the phone talking to lyndon johnson and saying, we need to name a blue ribbon commission, otherwise, the american people will never feel like we've investigated this crime of the assassination. now, of course, what happened was just the opposite, they were hoping to bring everything out and let the american people feel comfortable about the fact that they knew who the assassin was and now we've had these 40, 50 years of not knowing or of people feeling like there's something being hidden and by not having all -- every single one of the papers released on thursday, what you have is the conspiracy starting right up again. they're just stirring the pot
7:08 am
of the kennedy conspiracy people. >> cokie, let me ask you about another story that's a little bit more current and a lot of people have been talking about this tiny company out of whitefish, montana, that got hired to restore power in puerto rico. some people are pointing out that the owner of the company has political ties to people in trump's orbit. how big a story do you think this is? >> i don't think this one goes terribly far. after a major disaster, all kinds of funny things happen because there's a whole lot of money being thrown at a problem and people get rich off of it. after the bp oil spill in louisiana, the cynics were referring to spillionaires, so you have all kinds of shady things going on, and this one is likely to be off, not something that we would have recommended on an ethical basis, but i don't think it's likely to rise to a major story. >> not shady, our political guru
7:09 am
cokie roberts. thank you, cokie. great to have you with us this morning. we want to turn to another headline out of washington. the me too campaign is coming to capitol hill now. >> congresswomen now stepping forward sharing their stories about sexual harassment and assault and abc's david wright is here with much more on that. david, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, dan and cecilia. the epidemic of stories about sexual misconduct and outright assault have made it to capitol hill, not in the form of new legislation, but rather new allegations. a congresswoman and her staffers are calling out what they call a culture of tolerance of bad behavior. the congresswoman inspired by the women who began this tough conversation in hollywood. silent no more, the actress rose mcgowan in her first appearance since accusing harvey weinstein of rape 20 years ago. >> i have been harassed, i've been maligned, and you know what, i'm just like you. >> reporter: defiant she says sexual harassment and assault
7:10 am
will not be ignored. >> name it, shame it, call it out. >> reporter: now the me too movement she helped to spark has caught fire on capitol hill. >> many of us in congress know what it's like because congress has been a breeding ground for a hostile work environment for far too long. >> reporter: california congresswoman jackie speier launching me too congress urging lawmakers and staffers to speak out by sharing her own story. >> so i know what it's like to keep these hidden deep down inside. i know what it's like to lie awake in bed at night wondering if i was the one who had done something wrong. >> reporter: she is not alone. senator claire mccaskill says as a young state legislator, she asked an older male colleague for help. his advice? >> he said, well, did you bring your kneepads? i do think he was joking, but it was shocking that he would make
7:11 am
that joke to a colleague. >> reporter: a recent survey found that 40% of female congressional staffers cite sexual harassment as a problem on capitol hill. one in six female aides said they experience sexual harassment in their offices. but unlike many workplaces, on the hill there is no mandatory sexual harassment training. to file a complaint, victims must go through counseling, mediation and a cooling off period before filing a legal claim. all while working in the very same environment where the alleged harassment took place. allegations of workplace sexual abuse that have rocked hollywood and politics are also hitting home in the world of journalism. this morning, political analyst mark halperin is apologizing after allegations of sexual harassment when he was political director here at abc news. in a lengthy statement, halperin apologized to the women he mistreated admitting his behavior caused fear and anxiety for women who were only seeking
7:12 am
to do their jobs. now, halperin does not dispute the specific details of the allegations against him but insists that some of those allegations are not true. harvey weinstein for his part has admitted to sexual misconduct but denied the allegations of sexual assault. of course, authorities here in new york, in london and los angeles are investigating him. >> much more to come on all these stories. david, thank you very much. we appreciate it. we want to move on to new information we're learning this morning about the ambush in niger that killed four american special ops soldiers. >> abc's senior attorney correspondent ian pannell is on the ground in niger with the latest on this attack and the hunt for those responsible. ian, good morning. >> reporter: this morning, a new piece to the puzzle regarding the deadly and sophisticated attack here in niger that left four american soldiers dead. a senior intelligence official telling abc news there was a convoy of three trucks fleeing the deadly ambush, two making it out to the so-called kill zone but the third truck was cut off from the other vehicles unable
7:13 am
to communicate with the group. staff sergeants black, johnson and wright were in this vehicle, sergeant la david johnson in the third reportedly opening fire on the attackers, but it's unclear when. the official telling abc the stranded vehicle was hit with mortar and gunfire killing all three soldiers. two hours later french jets came into the battle zone flying low, which officials tell us caused the attackers to scatter preventing more fatalities. the remaining survivors then evacuating by helicopter. but many questions remain back home. above all, what was their mission, and should they have been better supported? and why was sergeant la david johnson left behind, his body only recovered two days later? >> it's a dangerous business, so what, no, i didn't know specifically. i gave them authority to do what's right so that we win. >> reporter: so what we're now hearing from officials this morning is that there is a military operation being planned against the perpetrators of this attack and other attacks in the area. we're being told that this has
7:14 am
been accelerated because of the death of the four american soldiers. we don't know exactly when this is taking place, but we're told it's soon, and it will have american support. dan, paula. we want to turn to a harrowing story from the sports world. >> a close home for the nba thunder during a plane ride and abc's erielle reshef is here with the story. erielle, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dan and cecilia. it was certainly a scare overnight for the oklahoma city thunder. the basketball team landing to find this huge dent in the nose of their charter plane. delta saying it was caused by a bird strike. players on board taking to social media to document the surprising damage. team officials said the flight was a little bit rough but knock seemed terribly out of the ordinary. thankfully no injuries here but the thunder played the minnesota timberwolves friday night and they were on their way to chicago's midway airport. this morning delta says the boeing 757 likely hit that bird on its descent. maintenance teams are now looking into this. the team is set to play the chicago bulls tonight. i have to say, dan and cecilia, thunder up. >> well, good for the thunder. i'm glad they're safe but that looks --
7:15 am
>> my hometown team. my hometown team. what can i say? >> it does look like they hit something more serious than a bird. >> it looks like a pterodactyl. >> a pterodactyl as ron said. thank you, thank you very much. also in the sports world is a controversy to talk about overnight at the world series. it came as a packed hometown crowd cheered the astros to in victory in game three in a night of tributes to the heroes in hurricane harry. >> it was after what happened after a home run victory lap. it has one player faces accusations of racism. abc's marcus moore is in houston with this story. marcus, good morning. >> reporter: well, cecilia and dan, good morning to you. more than 43,000 people watched that game unfold here at minute maid park in houston and, of course, friday night's game did bring about that controversy but for baseball fans, it also gave them another wild show. >> that is smoked. it is gone. >> reporter: smashing hits, dramatic slides and incredible catches captivating the crowd. >> astros taking three. >> reporter: the houston astros
7:16 am
taking game three in the series against the los angeles dodgers. a city now in the midst of triumph over tragedy in the wake of hurricane harvey. nfl star j.j. watt throwing out the first pitch in friday's world series game. the texans' defensive end out for the year with a leg injury raised $37 million for hurricane harvey relief but there is controversy this morning. astros player yuli gurriel under fire after what appears to ab racist gesture. he reportedly apologized and said he didn't mean to offend. [ speaking a foreign language ] >> translator: he felt offended, i want to apologize to him. >> reporter: this morning espn says the mlb plan to talk to him about the incident for a city back on the ride aiming for a win. and back to that drama in the dugout. pitcher yu darvish responding overnight via an interpreter saying the gesture was disrespectful but he also adds
7:17 am
that no one is perfect and that this is a learning moment for all of us. the dodgers and the astros take the field once again tonight here at minute maid park once again just after 7:00. cecilia, dan. >> showing some understanding and forgiveness, sportsmanship, one might say. thank you very much. we really appreciate it. let's get it over to rob for a look at the weather. rob, you got a lot cooking. >> yes, some startling pictures. brace yourself, here you go. snow. 10.2 inches of it falling in duluth, minnesota. accidents all over minneapolis. 200 accidents in the state and two fatalities, unfortunately, there and big waves across lake superior. look at that biker almost getting taken out by some of the waves doing some damage along the shoreline. all right. that's the northern part of the system. by the way, snow mixing in outside of cincinnati. this is the southern part likely to become a tropical storm staying just south of florida but we've got tropical storm warnings up for cuba and gets picked up part into the northern part and tomorrow will be a mess. enter tomorrow night into monday flood watches are out and winds could gust over 50 miles an hour
7:18 am

7:19 am
cecilia, adrienne, robert and good morning, everyone. we're going to begin in spain with an unprecedented show of force by the country's leaders, the national government there taking political control of the region of catalonia overnight. this after catalonia's leaders voted for independence. abc's chief foreign correspondent terry moran is in barcelona, that region's capital and he has more. terry. >> reporter: good morning, ron. according to the government, many of the people here, i am standing in the world's newest country, catalonia. they seceded from spain, and that's caused this crisis because spain says that's illegal. the spanish constitution holding that this is an indivisible nation and no other country in the world has recognized this declaration of independence. the u.s. state department issuing a very tough statement against what they've done here and backing spain to the hilt. and now spain has issued orders that all the political leaders who issued this declaration of independence are fired. the government is dissolved and they are taking over direct control of this region from madrid, so what happens next?
7:20 am
well, no one really knows, and while it looks like a very normal day here in beautiful barcelona, there is a threat of violence in the air. for spain to take political control, they'll probably have to take physical control at least of the government buildings. the leader of the 20,000 strong police force here says he won't obey their orders, and so this is a region and a country on edge. ron. >> terry moran reporting from barcelona. and back in the u.s. in california, a 54-year-old man named marlon coy is under arrest charged with three felony counts for arson for allegedly starting the bear fire that scorched 331 acres of santa cruz county. that happened earlier this month. that fire lasted for ten days destroying four homes -- two homes, four buildings and 17 vehicles. more than a dozen firefighters injured in that blaze. and tiger woods pleaded guilty in florida to reckless driving. the palm beach county judge placed him on probation. this happened on friday avoiding sending him to jail but on the condition that he stays out of further legal trouble.
7:21 am
woods was, of course, arrested last may for failing a police roadside sobriety test. prosecutors say he had five different drugs in his system including vicodin, xanax and ambien. and there's a new rich or richest man in the world. it's rob. it's not rob. okay. it's amazon ceo jeff bezos reclaiming the top spot from microsoft co-founder bill gates. bezos' net worth now more than $90 billion edging ahead of gates and his 88.5 billion bucks. the two could keep trading places depending on markets. the last time that bezos was number one, it only lasted a few hours. and if you're wondering about the richest woman, up until last month it was liliane bettencourt of l'oreal, but she died last month. okay, moving on, hopefully. we're not moving on? i'm done. they got the hook on me. i'm out of here. >> we want one more story. >> i'm out of here. i got another story but i'll save it for tomorrow. >> okay. all right. >> it's a tease.
