question is, is it a maintenance problem with southwest? is it a design problem with the manufacturer? or is it some new failure mode that we didn't know about that comes when the airplanes begin to get old? >> and linzie janis with us live tonight from philadelphia. and linzie, we were all trying to remember the last time there was a deadly incident involving a domestic plane. i remember being on the scene in buffalo, new york, that was the last deadly incident in 2009? >> reporter: that's right, david. nearly ten years ago. and tonight, ntsb investigators are going to be taking apart that engine and looking at the plane's maintenance records to try to figure out how this happened. southwest says it is devastated and expressed its deepe esest sympathies to the family of the woman who lost her life. >> linzie, thank you. we're going to move on tonight, and to new drama unfolding with the president and his personal attorney's legal battle. and tonight, stormy daniels responding to what the president said recently on fa lly on air .

>> no, no. >> did that surprise you at all? >> let me just say, i'm in the adult business, and i'm a better actress than he is. >> reporter: daniels and her lawyer michael avenatti also now releasing this sketch which they say is based on her memory of the man who allegedly threatened her and her baby in a parking lot in 2011. >> i just remember him saying, "that's a beautiful little girl, it would be a shame if something happened to her mom. forget about this story, leave mr. trump alone." >> this is a very detailed sketch and it was created by a woman by the name of lois gibson. she has the world record for the most identifications. she works with the fbi and law enforcement all around the country. we're offering $100,000 reward for information leading to the identification of this man. >> reporter: and stormy daniels isn't the only one talking after yesterday's courtroom drama. >> some recent news about yours truly that came up today. >> reporter: it was revealed michael cohen had just three clients last year.
one, president trump. the second, republican fund-raiser elliot broidy. "the wall street journal" reports broidy arranged a $1.6 million payment to a model who became pregnant during her affair with him. and in court, audible gasps when it was revealed the third client was sean hannity. >> my name was mentioned in court proceedings earlier today. >> reporter: hannity, who tweeted this photo with cohen in 2015, says he relied on cohen for advice and it never involved a third party. >> michael cohen never represented me represented me in any legal manner. i never retained his services. i never received an invoice. i never paid michael cohen for legal fees. my questions exclusively almost focused on real estate. >> reporter: but sean hannity never disclosed to his audience that he was a client of michael cohen's. even as he defended cohen on his show. >> liberal mainstream media, they've gone totally off the rails over the fbi's highly questionable raid on michael cohen. >> reporter: hannity defending
cohen on the same day president trump tweeted, "big show tonight on sean hannity." overnight, well-known defense attorney, alan dershowitz, criticizing hannity on his own show. >> well, first of all, sean, i do want to say that i really think that you should have disclosed your relationship with cohen when you talked about him on this show. >> and abc's kyra phillips joins us again tonight. fox news now responding to what was revealed in court? >> reporter: david, fox news says they were surprised by the hannity reveal. they say they didn't know about hannity's, quote, informal relationship with cohen. they also say hannity continues to have full support from fox news. david? >> kyra phillips with us tonight. kyra, thank you. let's get to dan abrams for more. and dan, we know that michael cohen and the president were trying to protect a lot of what was seized in those fbi raids. so, bottom line tonight, who seems to have the upper hand in this current fight? >> reporter: well, look, the president and michael cohen lost in their effort to be the initial ones to go in and
determine what's privileged and what's not. the prosecutor goes in, they put it on a database. both sides are going to have access to it. the only remaining question is, who should make the first decisions? federal prosecutors or an independent individual? but regardless, the defense is going to have a continuing say in this battle. >> in what stays and what goes. >> exactly. >> you have pointed all along here that fbi agents can't go in there to get everything they can find on the president. they just simply can't do that. >> and this wasn't about the president. this was about michael cohen. they had evidence that they brought to a judge that michael cohen may have committed a crime and that there was a risk of destroying evidence. that's the only way you get a judge to sign off on something like this. >> to actually raid an attorney's office, which is very rare. >> very, very rare. and there are specific procedures in place you have to follow when that happens. >> all right, dan abraabrams, t you. we turn next tonight to a sweeping decision revealed by starbucks this evening. they're now planning to close more than 8,000 stores for a
time, all on one day. they say, for training, after accusations of racial bias. it comes after those arrests in philadelphia, two black men led away in handcuffs by police after asking to use the bathroom. and now tonight, another video now emerging. here's abc's linsey davis. >> reporter: tonight, for the first time, we are hearing the 911 call from the starbucks manager who sparked protests and nationwide outrage. >> i have two gentlemen at my cafe who are refusing to make a purchase or leave. >> reporter: police say that call was made after the men were denied access to the bathroom. the two black men were arrested for trespassing and handcuffed but this man says the men were there for a meeting. >> what did they get called for? because there are two black guys sitting here meeting me? >> reporter: on monday, the ceo of starbucks apologized to both men in person. and today, the company announced it will close all locations the afternoon of may 29th to train all 175,000 employees in "racial-bias education geared toward preventing discrimination
and to ensure everyone inside a starbucks store feels safe and welcome." what happened in philadelphia is now prompting this man to to share what happened to him at a california starbucks. brandon ward says he was denied the code to the bathroom because he hadn't yet made a purchase. but he says this white man had no problem. >> i just asked for the code. >> you just asked for the code and they gave it to you, right? >> yeah. >> before you made a purchase, right? >> yeah. >> reporter: ward then confronts the store manager. >> i just tried to use the bathroom like you did, and they gave it to you. is it my skin color? is it my skin color? is it my skin color? >> and linsey davis with us again tonight. linsey, what is starbucks saying about this latest video? >> reporter: starbucks says they take the video very seriously, and they're working closely with their team to learn from their mistakes. now, as for the manager who was at this philadelphia location who called the police, she's now out of a job. david? >> linsey davis in philadelphia. and from sacramento tonight, troubling new quells about the police shooting of stephon clark in his grandmother's backyard. tonight, there's now newly released audio and video clips. and you'll remember those first

>> fancy seeing you all here. >> muted. >> reporter: officers seen on tape muting their body cameras multiple times. >> are you muted? >> i'm off all the way off. >> okay. >> that will be part of our investigation, determining why they muted their body cameras. >> reporter: david, sacramento police are now enforcing tougher body cam rules, including when an officer wants to mute a camera, they have to state the reason into the microphone first. david? >> whit johnson with us tonight. thank you, whit. former first lady barbara bush is surrounded by her family tonight, and this evening, a very personal reveal. her son, neil, reporting the entire family is now taking comfort in reading to her. neil reading to his mother from her own memoir. abc's dan harris is in houston for us. >> reporter: even in failing health, former first lady barbara bush retains her signature sense of humor, according to her son, neil, who spoke with houston cbs affiliate khou. >> she's been answering the phone when people call in and

point. while doctors will not be treating her underlying medical conditions, they will likely be aggressively treating any symptoms she has, such as pain or trouble breathing or anxiety. the whole point of this kind of care, david, is to make sure that whatever time remains is at the highest quality possible. >> so many prayers for barbara bush tonight. dan harris, thank you. next tonight, to the unexpected nightmare on this tax day for so many. the irs now reporting tonight widespread problems with its website. as millions of americans rush to file their returns before the midnight deadline. the agency reporting a breakdown involving e-filing. taxpayers having problems using tax software including turbo fox and h&r block. a government official telling abc news those who could not submit returns electronically will get an extension. the irs says there are other filing options available. there is still much more ahead on "world news tonight" this tuesday. new developments in the nationwide manhunt, and they need your help tonight.
