7:01 am
chicago runway. >> everybody was already running and screaming. >> this morning the ntsb revealing engine parts were found a half mile away. and one game away. cleveland topping the cubs at wrigley. >> three games to one. >> helped by this big blast. >> it is gone! >> they have now got a 3-1 lead in the world series. can they win it all tonight or will there be a cubs comeback? hello. on a sunday morning, we want to say thank you for joining us on "gma." we do begin with an embattled hillary clinton trying to go on offense. >> overnight she ripped into the director of the fbi, james co comey, who rocked the clinton campaign with the announcement days before the election that his agency is now looking into a batch of newly discovered e-mails. e-mails that may be relevant to the investigation into clinton's
7:02 am
in the meantime, donald trump is on offense as well. there he is overnight, out on the stump, pressing his case with renewed vigor. the latest poll numbers have to be putting an added spring in his step. according to the latest abc news tracking poll, clinton's lead has shrunk to just one point. look at the change over the past week. clinton's lead going from 12 points down to 1. >> this thing is tight. and it is late. and we have team coverage this morning. george stephanopoulos is standing by withna we're starting here with abc's mary bruce who is with the clinton campaign in miami. mary, good morning to you. >> reporter: hi. good morning. with the clock ticking this morning the clinton campaign is in full attack mode going directly after the fbi director accusing him on being vague with the facts and opening the door to conspiracy theories. >> some of you may have heard about a letter that the fbi director sent out yesterday. [ boos ]
7:03 am
go, hillary clinton is ripping into a new opponent, fbi director, james comey. >> it's pretty strange to put something like that out with such little information right before an election. >> reporter: clinton questioning the director's motivation and demanding answers. >> in fact, it's not just strange. it's unprecedented, and it is deeply troubling. >> reporter: and she's getting some backup. top democratic senators drew a line in the sands. in a letter to the fbi director setting a halloween deadline for him to release more information about the e-mails and this investigation. abc news has learned the director's announcement sparked a fierce internal feud at the justice department. sources say senior justice officials strongly objected to comey's decision to go public, and announce its review of newly found e-mails possibly linked to clinton's server. it's been tradition for the agency not to take investigative action close to an election for
7:04 am
but in an internal staff memo, comey says he felt an obligation to tell congress anyway. even though there's no evidence of wrongdoing by clinton. now clinton is accusing her opponent of distorting the facts for political gain. >> donald trump is already making up lies about this. [ boos ] he is doing his best to confuse, mislead and discourage the americ p next and first female president of the united states, hillary clinton! ? >> reporter: overnight in miami, clinton tried to shimmy and shake it off at a rally with jennifer lopez. >> no matter what they throw at us, we don't back down. not now, not ever. >> so a big party overnight mary, but one thing that people noticed is that a key clinton
7:05 am
with her yesterday. >> reporter: yeah. they're so close, she's been called clinton's shadow. huma abedin was absent from the campaign trail yesterday. human abedin, the center of the latest controversy. it was a computer she shared a latest controversy. it was a computer she shared with her estranged husband former congressman anthony wiener that led to the discovery of these e-mails that may be linked to clinton's server. dan and paula. >> that's a big question where she is. thank you very much, mary. and a reinvigorated donald trump is tanking the e-mail scandal, calling her actions willful, deliberate and criminal, and maintaining his assessment that this is bigger than watergate. watergate. trump is holding a rally where we find david wright. good morning to you. >> reporter: three guesses what theme he'll be hitting hardest at that rally, whether he intended to or not, the fbi director has thrown trump a lifeline and trump has seized it. >> this is the biggest political
7:06 am
everybody's deepest hope that justice at last will be beautifully delivered. >> reporter: this surprise encore of hillary clinton's e-mail scandal came not a moment too soon. >> hillary has nobody but herself to blame for her mounting legal difficulties. >> reporter: this time, the scandal includes the sexting investigation into disgraced former congressman, anthony weiner. >> haven't we had enough drama with the clintons? >> reporter: trump sure hasn't. now there's new vigor to his claims of clinton cronyism and back room deals. >> the department of justice is fighting with the fbi. that's because the department of justice is trying their hardest to protect the criminal activity of hillary clinton. [ boos ] >> reporter: suddenly fbi director comey is no longer part
7:07 am
he also gets to say i told you so about wiener. >> we don't want perverts elected in new york city. no perverts. >> reporter: wanting to pass tweets, calling him a sicko, and a calamity. >> it's called instinct folks. i had no idea i was going to be that accurate. boy, that was right on the nose. >> reporter: the anthony weiner component has brought this race right at trump's rallies the chance of "lock her up" have a new intensity. dan and paula, remember when the presidential contest was about the 3:00 a.m. phone call at the white house? now it's about 3:00 a.m. messages of a very different sort. >> yeah. i think uyou could argue this race has been in the gutter for a while. david, thank you very much for your reporting from vegas this morning. as promised, abc news george stephanopoulos. he will be hosting "this week" later this morning. good morning, sir. if you combine this news out of the fbi with the dramatically tightened abc news tracking
7:08 am
was written off by some people could come back and win this election? >> can't rule it out. there's no question about it. on thursday night before this news broke, hillary clinton was on offense. she was on track to victory. probably more than 300 electoral votes, but everything stopped dead in its tracks when this news came out on friday. our latest polls show that about 30% of the people say this makes them less likely to vote for hillary clinton. most of those were for donald trump anyway. but the question is will this energize his supporters even more? depress her supporters. we don't know the full answer to that yet. we need to learn a lot more abo about what exactly comey is looking at, whether her partisans come back and say, wait a second. this doesn't seem fair, but it makes it possible no question about it. >> speaking of her supporters and members of congress feel there are concerns this could unfairly influence the election and they are phing comey to be more transparent and release some of this information.
7:09 am
>> it's hard to know what's going through james comey's mind right now. you remember back in july. he broke tradition in july when he gave the press conference. rather hand closing the investigation, he said he was doing it because there was intense public interest in this case. you would think that same standard would drive him to release more details, and of course, you now have that request from members of congress and a few senators right now to have them out by tomorrow. but he has shown over the weekend, it appears he defied his colleagues at the justice department who said they believed she should not come out with that report, and he did it anyway. only he knows what he is going to do. >> doesn't have a case? he's getting pounded for releasing this letter close to the election. if we had found out after the election he learned about these e-mails and didn't say anything, until after the election, he would be pounded for that. >> no question. he was in a tough spot because in part, he had come out publicly in the past. what we need to get an answer to, did he know what was in the e-mails when he wrote the letter? >> i think he's saying he
7:10 am
>> there's indication that he doesn't know the full scope of it. but might have had no idea at all. so that's what's creating the criticism for him as well. but no question about it. he was in a very, very tough spot. probably going to get criticized no matter what he did. we'll see what he does in the coming days. >> it's almost certain to affect the election in some way. thank you very much. a reminder george has a big show coming up, going one-on-one with the democratic vicere no, ma nominee. that's tim kaine. and stay with us, for complete coverage on election day led by george and that's just nine days away. >> next tuesday. thanks dan. we are going to move on to some breaking news this morning with a powerful earthquake that has hit central italy. close to the same location as the quake back in august. damage reports are coming in and getting word of cathedrals collapsing, and jennifer eccleston joins us with more from london. hi, jennifer.
7:11 am
morning. another terrifying event for central italy. this is the same area that was hit wednesday with back to back earthquakes. this morning, just after k a7:0 a.m., it was a powerful 6.6 magnitude, and it was centered outside the historic town in umbria. people sent running into the street as clouds of dust and stones from falling buildings filled alleyways and roads. emergency crews on the scene in minutes, rescuing the and some of the town's clergy. this is home to a community of american monks. they tweeted they're all okay but their 14th century basilica is destroyed. italian emergency services say there are some injuries but no reports of death so far but they're still assessing. emergency crews have a huge presence across the region after that deadly august earthquake
7:12 am
which killed nearly 300 people and because of that huge quake, thousands have evacuated the area. those that remain know when they start to feel shaking, get outside and that saves lives. dan. >> jennifer eccleston in london. thank you. now to the harrowing moments caught on camera. panicked passengers on board an american airlines flight rushing for the exits when their plane burst into flames before takeoff. this morning some passengers are telling their stories saying they are lucky to be alive. this as the investigation gets under way, and abc's eva pilgrim joins us now with the latest. good morning, eva. >> reporter: the plane has been removed. the runway is still closed. it is expected to open later this morning. investigators now saying that something broke on that plane. the question now is why. some answers this morning as to what led to this terrifying scene at o'hare international airport in chicago. >> examination of the engine
7:13 am
turbine failed. >> we thought it was going to blow up. >> reporter: federal investigators blaming the accident on uncontained engine failure. >> inside the engine you see blades turning around in there. pieces of the engine came apart and disintegrated. >> reporter: parts of the plane flying in every direction. one piece found roughly 1,600 feet north of the accident. another in a ups warehouse almost 3,000 feet in the opposite direction. inside the plane, panic and chaos. >> the plane started shaking and finally ca t everybody was already running and screaming. >> reporter: flames shooting off one side of this american airlines boeing-767 with 161 passengers onboard. people pouring out the emergency exits down the slides. investigators say the fire never made it into the cabin, but the smoke was everywhere. >> about halfway through getting out, the smoke started to get a little bit heavy, and that was the scariest part of the whole thing. >> reporter: now investigators
7:14 am
collected, as well as kmning the plane's maintenance records. still not sure what caused the right engine to fail. and if you're one of those people worrying about an upcoming flight, experts say it's overwhelmingly safe to fly here at o'hare airport. they say that they haven't had an accident in at least eight years of this magnitude. >> that's really good and useful context. thank you very much, especially coming up. >> you think what would have happened if they would have taken off. >> absolutely. ron, let's check in with you. i know you are tracking the other headlines around the globe. govern -- good morning to you. >> good morning to you paula, dan, diane, robert. good morning everyone. we begin with a toxicology report that found the miami's marlins' star pitcher, jose fernandez had alcohol and cocaine in his body when he died in a boating accident last month. his blood alcohol content was

this happened on saturday. the performance did not resume. it was investigate and turned out the substance was the cremated remains of a friend of that man who wanted to pay tribute to him as his mentor by sprinkling his ashes inside the opera house. the man did not realize he had done anything wrong. >> okay. and in virginia, security video capturing what police say looks like an abduction outside of a holding onto another man, and looks like he's trying to get away from them. they stuff him into the trunk of that car. get in the car and drive away. that's bizarre. and finally, more heartbreak for cubs fans. like paula faris here, is the cleveland indians, yes. they won again at chicago's wrigley field. the indians now one game away from clinching the series. paula gave me the evil eye. would you stop?

7:46 am
welcome back, everyone. in today's weekend download, advice on keeping your kids safe on their search for treats this halloween. joining us is parenting expert, erica suter. happy halloween. halloween is tomorrow, erica. what should we be looking for? >> your kids should trick-or-treat in groups and you know there's safety in numbers. you should go over their candy at the end of the night. to make sure nothing is unwrapped or tampered with. and lastly, you want to make sure they know not to enter a stranger's house. for any reason. >> never go in a stranger's home. my kids are 9, 7 and 2 and hard to keep track of them. they like to go in different directions. but you say there are high tech apps where we can track our kids. >> our moms rave about this app called mama bear. it tracks your kids using gps. it allows them to check in on the app with you when they get to a certain place and also allows you to know when they have left, you know, an area. they have gone into a restricted area, and it can send you an alert to let you know, we need to be picked up right now.
7:47 am
i love that we can track our kid. >> footprints which is similar. it let's you set up boundaries for your kids in the neighborhood. when they have left those boundaries, you get an alert skpur, and we also like this app called next door. it's a private social network and they have a tool where you can have a halloween treat map and know all the neighbors giving out treats ahead of time. >> what about costume dangers? >> because of all the reports of people in creepy clown masks terrorizing children and neighborhoods, a lot of towns and school districts have banned clown costumes. so parents should keep that in mind. >> let's use common sense and keep the tricks out of the treat in halloween. happy halloween. >> happy halloween. >> thank you, erica. we'll be back with more "pop news." ith more "pop news." my doctor said moving more helps ease fibromyalgia pain. she also prescribed lyrica.
7:48 am
for some, lyrica can significantly relieve fibromyalgia pain and improve function, so i feel better. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new or worsening depression, or unusual changes in mood or behavior. or swelling, trouble breathing, rash, hives, blisters, muscle pain with fever, tired feeling, or blurry vision. common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain and swelling of hands, legs and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. until you know how lyrica affects you. those who have had a drug or alcohol problem may be more likely to misuse lyrica. with less pain, i can be more active. ask your doctor about lyrica. there is a world, like no other world. where faraway lands meet distant galaxies. and even families who are together every day
