7:32 am
relapses. the "washington post" reports on conservative billionaire charles koch meeting with his network of donors over his refusal to endorse donald trump. koch defended his decision, he wants to focus on senate races instead. but some want to concentrate on defeating hillary clinton. the group would feature clinton in senate campaign ads. and flying debris at a demolition derby in northern utah that hurt three people. two women and a little boy were injured saturday when part of a truck broke off and flew into the crowd. there is little or no protective vladimir putin would not invade ukraine. >> he's not going into ukraine. just so you understand. he's not going to go into

ukraine. you can mark it down. you can put it down. >> he's already there, isn't he? >> he's there in a certain way. but i'm not there yet. obama is there. frankly, that whole part of the world is a mess under obama. with all the strength you're talking about and all the power of nato and ail of this. in the meantime, he takes crimea. >> hillary clinton's campaign said in a statement, quote, this is scary stuff, and yet more proof why donald trump is unfit and totally unqualified to be commander and chief. general michael hayden, good morning. >> good morning. >> do you agree with hillary clinton? >> well, it certainly was a fact-free description of what's going on in the ukraine. >> do you agree with what she said? totally unfit and unqualified to be commander in chief -- >> that would add to a wbody of evidence that would dra one towards that conclusion. there is a chance to recover. right now, that statement there again, devoid of facts and

russians with the americans forgiving previous russian sins and allowing certain forms of russian behavior in return for russian cooperation on other joint problems. now, look, i like the part about the russian cooperation, but i do think actions have consequences. the occupation of crimea, the continued occupation of portions of the ukraine, the threat to the baltics, the unacceptable behavior, the cyber attacks which we're pretty certain that the russians are carrying out. you can't have this accommodation while that kind of behavior continues. >> three questions about the russian cyber attack. number one, are we convinced they did it? is everybody in the intelligence community convinced they did it? did they do it because they want to manipulate the election? three, how do we retaliate. >> i think they did it. you saw jim clapper cutely say only a limited number who could
7:36 am
do this. i think the consensus is they did do this. in the cyber domain, sometimes you can't get to that court of law beyond no reasonable doubt. i think the rab russians did it. the stealing of the data, that's generally accepted state espionage. stealing that stuff is what big nations, including our own do to other big nations. they did something else, though. they weaponized the information. they used the information to at a minimum play with our heads. i really don't think he's got the wisdom, the cleverness, to use the data to affect the outcome of the campaign. putin. i think he's just playing with our heads. he thinks we do this to him all the time. he thinks we did the orange revolution. he thinks we did the rose revolution. he's trying to give us a taste of our own medicine. with regard to retaliation, you

7:38 am
of those thinktank seminars on steroids. this isn't going to be let me show you the covert actions. they're busy, all right? but even candidates less talkative than mr. trump are frightened about trying to sort out in their minds when they get the unexpected question from folks like yourself, did i learn that in the briefing or did i read that in the paper. and they want to keep those challenges to a minimum until election day. >> you have some intelligence officials who have suggested and been reported that they are concerned about donald trump having these briefings. you have paul ryan suggesting that he's concerned about hillary clinton having these briefings. what's your level of concern about each of them having these briefings? >> saying those things is unprecedented. this should be normal. this is just routine run of the american electoral process. you have candidates that have done and said things that make
7:39 am
serious people question their suitability, but they're going to get it. >> do you think they're going to tell these candidates everything they tell the president of the united states? >> the briefings between now and the election will be very vanilla. that will be classified light. somebody after the first tuesday, first monday is getting the president's daily brief. you take ohio, you take florida, you take pennsylvania, that's all you need to get the secrets. >> coming back to ukraine one more time. there was story that paul manafort had a relationship with a woman. but is there anything here we should look at? >> the circumstantial evidence really does suggest an interest plot line. but charlie, to my mind, that's all you have to date. that would be just one hypothesis. this could very well be the

candidate's own view that he likes to side l up to the stuff guy, the guy who makes decisions, and i can deal with the tough guy. now, that can be fed by the relationships that other members of his campaign team have had before. >> he said said maybe if russia can help defeat isis, why wouldn't that be a good idea to form a partnership with them. >> exactly right. that's the point. that's not just trump's campaign plan it's actually the current administration's plan at the moment. >> general, always good to have you here. >> from flooding to terrorism, the rush to keep the rio olympics from being a complete washout. and if you're heading out the door we hope you don't do it right now. you can watch us live on the app. we know you don't want to miss actor david oyelowo. he'll be in studio 57 to discuss. we'll be right back. ning the ov! yeah, i'm cleaning the gutters! washing the dog! washing the cat!

convention. yesterday khan said he had asked his wife if she wanted to speak. >> she said you know my condition. when i see my son's picture, i cannot hold myself together. for this candidate for presidency to not be aware of the respect of a gold star mother standing there, and he had to take that shot at her. this is height of ignorance. >> during his convention speech khan also said that trump had sacrificed nothing and no one. in response donald trump said his sacrifices came in the form of jobs that he has created. an investigation into donald trump's hiring practices shows he recently filed visa applications to bring in foreign workers for his palm beach, florida club. the buzz feed report says he filed applications this month claiming he couldn't find enough americans to do that work and is seeking temporary visas to bring in 65 workers in marlago. trump responded in an interview

shame on you, donald trump. >> clinton will appear today in nebraska with billionaire investor warren buffett. trump campaigns in ohio and pennsylvania. tomorrow, donald trump's son eric will be here in studio 57. in florida this morning, it is all but certain four zika cases came from local mosquitos. we've been reporting on the victims in the miami area. more are expected in that region. well over 1,600 travel-related cases are reported in the continental u.s. and hawaii. and there are more than 400 pregnant women with signs of zika. in the meantime, congress went on summer recess without approving funds to fight zika. now senate democrats want members to cut their break short. dr. anthony fauci leads the national institute of allergy and infectious diseases. he's in bethesda, maryland, this morning and joins us. hello, dr. fauci, good to have you here. >> good to be with you. >> a lot of people worried this morning. why are authorities so confident these are local mosquitos in
8:06 am
florida? >> well, they are local mosquitos because there's no evidence at all these individuals did not travel out of the continental united states. there's no evidence that they've had any kind of contact with other people who have zika. and so the obvious conclusion to this, which is almost incontrovertible this is local spread through mosquitos, which was not at all unexpected given the number of travel-related cases that we know are in the united states, many of which are concentrated in florida. >> do you expect to find additional local cases? >> you know, charlie, i think there will be no doubt that we're going to see additional cases. this is something that was expected. it was predicted. the critical issue now is to prevent these locally acquired cases from becoming sustained and from becoming disseminated. so there's a lot of activity going on locally by the local health authorities of very aggressive mosquito abatement control in order to prevent the spread beyond that area in the
8:07 am
dade county area where we're talking about. >> how do you do that? >> you do it by several ways. you can actually eliminate standing water, which mosquitos very vigorously procreate there. they lay their eggs in water, get larvae and get adults. i'm saying pots, pans, small bottle caps. one way is killing the larvae with insecticides spraying either with backpack type spraying or aerial spraying. so they're putting a full court press on that right now. >> dr. fauci, as gayle mentioned the white house asked for big funding $1.9 billion in february. that has not been approved. congress is now in recess. how big a problem is it that that money is not available to fight this disease? >> well, it fundamentally is a big problem to begin with. but what's happening now as we're getting now into august, the beginning of august, we have had -- when i say we, i mean the cdc and nih and others have had to borrow money from other areas of things that we do to get our
8:08 am
effort going. we are very soon going to completely run out of money to do that. and then things are going to start to slow down. so it really is unfortunate that that money is not been appropriated. >> so they come back early from break as is being suggested? >> well, i don't know what the mechanism is going to be, gayle, but something needs to be done. >> all right. dr. anthony fauci, we thank you, sir, for joining us this morning. >> good to be with you. it could take months for a small maryland town to recover from devastating weekend flooding. surging water killed at least two people in ellicott city, west of baltimore. many residents helped each other to survive. dramatic video shows people linking arms to save a woman from her car. the cars were swept away. >> pictures tell the story there. flash flooding destroyed several homes and businesses. cars ended up stacked on top of one another like toy cars. the governor toured the devastation declared a state of emergency for the county. flash flood watches this morning are posted in parts of

>> i can see why she never came here. >> oh, she just didn't. >> look how that turned out. >> that wasn't my fault. >> no? >> no. >> i saw how she came back from here. that was you. >> boy, david oyelowo welcome back to the table. >> thank you. >> you're a producer on this movie, too? >> i am, i am. i really wanted to see this one made. >> because? >> i think -- well, it's a universal theme. we're ail whether we like it or not, are going to have to deal with bereavement at some point in our lives. it's something as a society we shy away from. when i read the script, its was a beautiful treatment of thing we all go through. >> was it a learning experience? >> it was a learning experience. what drew me to it was also the thing that made me scared of it. i'm married to a very wonderful lady myself. when you're an actor, you have to pit yourself in the position of what you're playing. the idea of having to entertain
8:46 am
the loss of her was something i didn't want to do. >> that scene was very powerful. i wondered if you were thinking about her at that moment and what that would do to you, when you get the news that she has died. >> if you're playing someone like dr. king, you're able to put yourself in their shoes and their experiences. something like this, you have to feel what it would be like for you. that's not a pleasant thing, but you have to go through, which is something i chose to subject myself to for the sake of the story. >> do you feel like you walked away with lessons about grief and bereavement? >> i walked away feeling very blessed that my wife is alive. that's not an easy thing for anyone who has suffered that to go through. what we try to do with the film between myself and diane who plays the mother of my wife in the film is to show how people can heal. >> and you wanted her for this role, as a producer. >> who wouldn't?

two-time oscar winner. >> did you think you would get her? >> no. no. but thankfully the strength of the script was enough. >> you've worked for four female directors. >> yeah, more actually. i actually had the opportunity to work with foyer female directors in a row. i have three films coming out. i did a film i've got coming out later this year called "a united kingdom". >> do women direct differently? >> i would say women do direct differently than men. one of the reasons "five nights in maine" has the emotional impact it has is due to the fact it was directed by a woman. films i've been in directed by women are, i've found that even "selma," she went for the
8:48 am
familial side of things over what a male director would gravitate towards. i think there needs to be a balance. that's why i'm a big champion for female directors. >> yoiu've spoken out about diversity in hollywood. have they gone far enough and what else needed to happen in order to solve that problem? >> i think in terms of the diversity and inclusion issue, we need to go past talking about it and actually just do it. i think the academy is doing that. for me, i actively look for projects that showcase people of color. that to me is doing it. to actively look for female directors as opposed to talking about it. i think if we ail decide to just do it, the change will come. >> you and your lovely wife became u.s. citizens two weeks ago. >> we did. >> so you'll be voting this year. >> i will be voting. that was a big reason to do it. also we've made a very real life
8:49 am
here. we thought let's go all in. you also can't play dr. martin luther king in a film about voting rights and not be able to vote. we felt we needed to do it. >> are you looking forward to voting this year? sg >> i am. >> what are your thoughts about -- we're kind of asking you to share. >> for me, it's a pivotal time in america's history. i think the decision made in november is going to have huge ramifications. rather than complain about it, you want to be part -- >> don't mean to cut you off. we got to go.
