7:07 am
? happy times happy times ? >> reporter: but this morning, newly released notes from fbi interviews about clinton's private server, in them, what republicans are calling this bombshell. an fbi staffer accuses a top state department official of pressuring the bureau to declassify an e-mail found on that server. the fbi staffer telling investigators that the request amounted to a quote quid pro quo. the e-mail unclassified, state would reciprocate by allowing the fbi to place more agents in countries where they are presently forbidden. the fbi and state department say the deal never happened. there was no quid pro quo and that the e-mail in question remained classified. >> there was no quid pro quo. >> this shows corruption at the highest level and we can't let it happen as american citizens. >> reporter: clinton's team still feeling confident about the election, expanding efforts in republican territory --

7:16 am
they called 911. he was covered in soot. there you see him. but it didn't stop him from giving one of the firefighters a big old hug right there. i just want to say locksmiths are an option. even maybe breaking a window might be better than getting tuck in a chimney. >> just saying. >> the firefighter looked like he was actually receptive of that hug covered in soot. stay away from me, buddy. here's something you don't see every day. indians pitcher trevor bauer forced to leave his playoff game early because his finger started and kayna whitworth is here with that story. and kayna, this all started with an injury from a groan. >> reporter: michael, that is exactly right. trevor bauer sliced his finger fixing one of his drones, and it happened right before the biggest game of his life. and so his start was pushed back. but after just 21 pitches, his finger started bleeding so much, they had to pull him. >> he's got him! >> reporter: overnight the
7:17 am

7:31 am
nobel prize for literature but the committee is still knock, knock, knocking on his door but he's not answered. not returning their calls or e-mails and they say they're not giving up. they'll keep on trying to reach out to him and i guess that's what we're doing right now. >> he did a couple concerts, didn't say a word about it. >> but he feel confident he'll show up. >> maybe he is super humble. who knows. that was silence. did you hear that silence? wow. >> i don't think you get a prize and then keep it quiet on the down low. more from melania trump. as we said she's standing by her husband blaming the media for spreading lies about him and linsey davis has a closer look. >> reporter: good morning. the republican presidential nominee's wife is now talking candidly in her first interviews in months and she dismisses the "access hollywood" recording between the former host billy bush and her husband as simply boy talk and says bush egged trump on and what trump said does not count as sexual
7:32 am
>> he apologized to me and i expect -- i accept his apology. and we are moving on. >> reporter: melania trump not only defends her husband, she goes on the attack. is it fair for the media to bring up bill clinton's past or for donald trump to bring up bill clinton's past? >> if they bring my past, why not? >> so they're asking for it. >> they're asking for it. they st known to keep a low profile is no longer shying away from entering the fray. >> oh, poor melania. don't feel sorry for me. don't feel sorry for me. i can handle everything. >> reporter: per stand by her man position is somewhat reminiscent of hillary clinton in 1998 when her husband was president and faced accusations of sexual misconduct. >> this vast right wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband
7:33 am
president. >> it was left wing and left wing media. >> reporter: the couple first met at a fashion week party in 1998. she told "harper's bazaar" she refused to give trump her phone number. instead she asked him for his and went on their first date soon after. in 2005 they were married and a year later melania gave birth to their son barron. she's mostly stayed off the campaign trail to raise him until her most maligned appearance at the republican convention this summer. >> the only limit to your achievements -- >> the only limit to the height of your achievements is the reach of your dreams and your willingness to work hard for them. >> and your willingness to work for them. >> reporter: since speechgate she's stayed out of the limelyght. last week her legal team demanded an apology from "people" magazine disputing reporter natasha stoynoff's claims that sometime after she says she was assaulted by donald trump she bumped into melania on
7:34 am
conversation with her. >> i was never friend with her. i would not recognize her. >> reporter: so as the campaign wipeds down, mrs. trump is hoping to land some punches before the final bell. >> people won't want to go against him but my husband is real. he's raw. he tells as it is. >> reporter: according to "the new york times," trump's aides urged melania to show her support for her husband by doing a sit-down interview with trump. melania reportedly did not like in her interview with fox news she is very clear she is her own woman and no one will make her do anything she doesn't want to do. robin and george. >> okay, linsey, thanks very much. let's bring had cokie roberts to talk more about it. cokie, as linsey pointed out in the piece right there, real echoes of hillary clinton both in 1998 and 1992, question today is how effective was it? >> probably not terribly effective in the same way that hillary clinton wasn't terribly effective in those interviews. i think that it's keeping the
7:35 am
another is that melania trump in some ways is not terribly recognizable to a lot of voters. during the republican convention i interviewed a number of republican female delegates who basically said that they couldn't relate to her. she was too beautiful, she was too rich and that they didn't see her as an authentic person in the same way that people see michelle obama, for instance. >> she was very much going after the accusers. it seems the strategy in having her come out and speak, cokie. >> well, in some ways i think that -- that in some ways was her most effective part because it was about her as opposed to being about her husband where they went after me so why not. but, again, that brings up her past and gives people excuses to put out nude pictures of her which is not terribly helpful to the campaign. >> i think the other part you would say to be effective is see her publicly accepting her
7:36 am
did in the statement and now she's done publicly, as well but, again, i don't think that that is something that people would expect her to do anything else but accept his apology. but, you know, look, looking at voters who basically say they don't care, we've got a very partisan electorate right now, what i do think might be true is that it might have energized some of hillary clinton's voters to say we don't want this man. >> i know, because martha raddatzas what you were just saying, cokie, martha raddatz was here, she spoke to voters who basically said, it doesn't matter. it doesn't matter what he did. so as a bigger deal being made out of it than it really is? >> well, i think that -- no, i really don't think so. i think even if it doesn't matter to a lot of voters who are very firmly set in their place that it has started a national conversation, robin. >> true, true. >> that women are feeling a
7:37 am
is -- this is not okay and there's a whole twitter site not okay with thousands of women on it now telling their own stories, so i think this has a life even beyond this campaign. >> yeah, the reaction has been extraordinary when you really break it down. all right, cokie, thanks so much. >> good to be with you. >> coming up on the big board? >> a lot. up next what fellow republicans are saying about donald trump's claims the election is and also what one guy did to get himself banned from the tennis court. wait till you see the caught on camera meltdown. all that coming up in just two minutes and we have mr. mcenroe to talk about that. >> patrick mcenroe. >> there he is over there. that was invigorating! you're probably wondering why i've just carved a giant wooden tiger. well, the answer is that a real one would maul me. i've crafted dr. whiskers here as a visual aid to show you that should you visit the lot,
7:38 am
come here to buy a car. dr. whiskers won't pounce. nobody will. ? ? ? life can be messy... but with crayola color wonder... it doesn't have to be. don't you wish life could be this mess-free? color wonder. find it in the crayola aisle. sets each sold separately. if your sneezes are a force to be reckoned with... rough allergies. try zyrtec? for powerful allergy relief. and zyrtec? is different than claritin?. because it starts working faster on the first day you take it.
7:39 am
just talking smack here with patrick mcenroe. we're talking about the '91 u.s. open, go figure. >> thanks for the memories. >> welcome back. time for our big board. our team of insiders standing by live for more on this morning's
7:40 am
we'll get to mac in just a moment. let's start with donald trump. ramping up those allegations that the presidential election is rigged. overnight at a rally in green bay, wisconsin, again hammering home the claim. >> they even want to try to rig the election at the polling booths and believe me, there's a lot going on. did you ever hear of these people. they say there's nothing going on. people that have died ten years ago are still voting. illegal immigrants are voting. smarts of some of these politicians? >> and we got jon karl joining us now from the battleground state of florida which was the e epicenter of the last presidential election controversy. and don't have to tell you, trump is not letting this one go, jon. >> oh, he is up obsessed with this everywhere he is talking about this. this morning he is still tweeting about it and this is a bedrock principle of american democracy, the peaceful
7:41 am
integrity of our election systems. he is saying that they don't have integrity, so i asked one of the republican leaders he's talking about last night, i moderated a debate here in florida last night between the senate candidates and asked marco rubio about this. listen to his response. >> there's been a lot of question about the legitimacy of this election. donald trump has said this election is absolutely being rigged. >> this election is not being rigged and i'll explain to you why is not i hope he stops saying that. why he should stop saying that. we have 67 counties in this state. each of which conduct their own elections. i promise you there is not a 67-county conspiracy to rig this election. >> well, and that -- >> here's noerz thing, robin, when you talk about this, local election officials in much of the country are republicans, fact, in the two biggest battleground states, ohio and florida, the two top election officials are republicans.
7:42 am
and because of what donald trump is saying do you think this year they're extra careful? >> reporter: oh, yes, i think there will be an eagle eye on all of the election largely because of what donald trump is saying but really this was the case before donald trump uttered the word rigged. i mean, i was down here covering the florida recount in 2000, believe me, after that process, people did a big scrub of the election process, teams of is something that has been looked at very carefully for a long time. >> good point there, jon. >> all right. well, thank you, jon. now to outrage over a 911 dispatcher accused of hanging up on more than 800 emergency calls. she's now facing two misdemeanor counts with potentially more to come legal analyst areva martin joining us now. investigators say she may have hung up on even more callers than the 800 they know about
7:43 am
fatality, but have you ever heard of anything like this? >> no, michael. this is an outrageous case. this woman crenshanda williams may have hung up on thousands of callers and as you said two really serious cases, one involving an armed robbery where there was a fatal shooting and a second one involving a woman who became unconscious. her husband's calling 911 talking to miss williams trying to administer cpr and she hangs up on him. now, fortunately for this woman, she's reviv survived this ordeal. but these are very serious accusations against someone who was entrusted with a very serious job of providing emergency assistance and she just said she didn't have time for the callers. >> accusations, areva and also charges. two misdemeanor charges. what do you make of that? >> well, i think the law that's being used to prosecute miss williams wasn't really designed for someone in her situation. it wasn't designed for a
7:44 am
provide assistance. but at least she is facing some jail time. possibly up to a year and her supervisors are also being disciplined. >> boy, that's the last thing you expect when you call 911. >> areva, thank you. we move on to the controversy surround a top ranked it ennis playing, australia's nick kyrgios banned the rest of the season when he seemingly just quit during a match. take a look. doesn't even try for it. so, patrick mcenroe, let's talk -- >> horrendous. >> you played at the top level. sport if thank you for saying that. >> you have. >> that's up for debate, but, okay. >> not at all. when you see something like that -- >> well, your first reaction is one of disgust and disdain, okay, but then when you take a step back i think you have to realize that this really in a
7:45 am
i mean to hit a serve like this, to literally tap the serve as he did is basically telling everyone that i don't care. i don't want to be here. i want no part of competing in this match. this guy has a history of doing things like this. let's also say that he's a very talented player. he's got some swagger. he's got some personality. he could be a grand slam champion if he gets his act together so i think the atp tour did the right thing, they banned him for the rest of this year but gave him an option that if he goes to see a psychologist and gets some help which i believe he needs that he could get the ban reduced and be ready to play at the australian open start of next year. i think that was the right decision by the tour. >> maybe that will take him to the next level. >> it should. it could and i think for him he's got to look in the mirror and realize that he's got a problem. i think he realizes that and he has said in some facebook comments and some twitter comments that he realizes he made a big mistake because
7:46 am
professional out there. he yelled at the people in the crowd. he yelled at the chair umpires and said get me out of here as quickly as i can. i mean, michael, can you imagine you letting a running back just go -- just right past you. >> no. >> no, i don't think so. >> not on purpose. >> that's what this guy did, did it on purpose. >> you think it's a bigger issue here. >> there's a bigger issue that he has and i think we need -- he needs to understand that there are consequences for his actions but he also understand -- we need to understand in the tennis world this guy needs some help and we should give him some help. >> hopefully he'll heed the advice and can end up being a great player you said he could be. now, thank you, pat, areva and jon, thank you all so much. coming up in just two minutes "the price is right" is making history, the moment that had these contestants jumping for joy is coming up next.

so i had an important conversation with my dermatologist about humira. he explained that humira works inside my body to target and help block a specific source of inflammation that contributes to my symptoms. in clinical trials, most adults ting humira were clear or almost clear, and many saw 75% and even 90% clearance in just 4 months. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. ask about humira, the #1 prescribed biologic by dermatologists.

? ? i want it all ? that tango got jana kramer a perfect score on "dancing with the stars." it was latin night. of course, one couple did have to come home and we're going to talk to maks in just a little bit. >> first, though, we've got that new health headline about diabetes and exercise and why when you work out really matters. abc's chief health and medical editor dr. richard besser joining us now with that and
8:14 am
>> exactly, exactly. >> and you got nearly 10% of americans have this and one in three are sort of so-called prediabetics so that's a lot of people right there. how much exercise do people need to reduce this risk? >> so this is really interesting. they looked at 28 studies that followed thousands of people over many years to try to address that and what they found was if you do the 30 minutes five times a week, which is recommended, it greatly reduces the amount -- your risk of getting type 2 diabetes. if you do more than that, your risk goes down even further but what reay if you do less, if you do only ten minutes a day, you get some benefit compared to people who do nothing so every bit helps. you shouldn't be put off by the fact i don't have enough time. >> right, but more is more and timing was also very important in the study, correct? >> so, a separate study looked at people who had type 2 diabetes and said, okay, you've got your 30 minutes to do, do you do it as one block or do you break it up? so they had people for one period of time do it in one block of 30 minutes and the
8:15 am
after eating a meal and what they found was if you do the ten minutes, just go for a ten-minute walk after you eat your meal, it greatly reduces blood sugar, 22% lower blood sugar with just a ten-minute walk. >> the science behind common sense. >> yes, exactly, exactly. >> is that just because your engines, so to speak, are working and processing food better. >> it was always like, well, walking helps you digest but it's controlled by a hormone called insulin and when you exercise, it helps our cells use the insulin and also causes our muscles to burn up that sugar so, you know, there's good reasons for why that bounces out your sugar and a great thing to do. >> in addition to exercise what else can people do? >> we talk about it all the time. if you can maintain a healthy weight or if you're overweight losing just 5% of your body weight, that's enough to dramatically reduce your risk of having type 2 diabetes. it's hard to do but it's really worth that effort. >> all of it doable too. >> it is. >> even a little bit of exercise. even a little bit of weight. >> yeah, and getting a partner
8:16 am
to get started. it really helps your chances of succeeding. >> good information. >> richard besser, thanks very much. coming up we'll hear from maks. he's joining us live. he's off the ballroom getting ready for diaper duty.
