7:09 am
messages that focuses on ties between the clinton foundation and state department when she was the secretary of state. how is the clinton campaign responding to that today? >> reporter: gayle, the clinton campaign denies any foundation donors received any special treatment, because she was secretary of state. but now, this batch of new e-mails obtained by the group judicial watch has some exchanges with huma abedin and doug band who led the global initiatives. in one exchange, abedin fielded a request from band for a quote, favor, from someone who seems to have been looking for a job. in another, band asks abedin to connect labanes ebill i don't know nares with someone of influence in lebanon. the ambassador there would be a good contact and said she would give him a call. the clinton campaign says the e-mails did not involve secretary clinton herself. or the foundation's work.
7:10 am
and they say, band was operating in his capacity as an aide to former president clinton, and not as a foundation official. charlie. >> thanks, nancy. dan seno was an advisor to the romney cam panl. welcome. >> good to be with you. let's talk about the controversy of the second amendment and donald trump. do you take him at his word that he was talking about political power? >> no. i've watched it, i've watched it probably 20 times. the best you could say, if you really want to give him the benefit of the doubt, he was joke become a subject you shouldn't be joking about. which is about inciting violence, particularly inciting violence against someone who is under secret service protection. they had to put out a statement saying they are aware of the comment. >> a joke or not, but you believe his words should lead you to say he was insightsing violence? >> yeah, well, it has the effect of inciting violence, i'm not sure that was his intention, but it has the effect. look, he has a pattern.
7:11 am
i drew up a list last night. if you look at what he said about megyn kelly, what he said about judge curiel, about what he said encouraging russians to hack and get the e-mails. if you look add what he said during the wisconsin primary about abortion, if you look at what he said about the disabled physically disabled report fer the new york time, after each one of these incidents, he says no, no, no, i didn't mean it. you've got to give me the benefit of the doubt. it was taken out of context, being i misinterpreted. you have pattern where you constantly say things that are highly divisive and inflammatory and extremely provocative, so much so that you have to come back and clean it up, one would think you would shall more cautious with your words, which means when you are talking about the second amendment and something that could allude to violence against a high profile political figure that is under secret service protection, you choose your words carefully. he did not do that. it is just another example for me and other leaders within the republican party that he is extremely reckless. >> let's talk about the leader force a second.
7:12 am
paul ryan who won big last night, a big win in wisconsin, he calmled it a bad joke gone bad. do you think the leadership is worried in the republican party? when you talk to the trump campaign, they have a "mad magazine", what, me worry. do you think the leadership is worried? >> the leadership is absolutely worried. i talked to a lot of them. let me give you some points that illustrate this. the clear average poll, sort of average of polls, has hillary clinton up right now, nationally by 7.5 points. these twice as high as barack obama was at this point against john mccain in 2008 and against mitt romney in 2012. that's nationally. she is even ahead in states that republicans have won in previous elections. she is competitive in places like georgia and north carolina, arizona. if she wins those states, and wins florida and ohio, she could best barack obama's electoral college tally by some 40
7:13 am
electoral college votes. this could be a trounce. you could say -- >> we've still got time. >> you could say that's an outlier, and it won't effect down ballot races. i'm dubious. if hillary clinton gets 350 to 400 electoral college votes, it means the senate is highly unlikely and poses a threat to the house majority. >> does it relate to the e-mail threat to her, because this is the thing that many people say there may be something there in terms of the foundation and some act of connection at the state department? >> what's amazing to me is there is so much material, vis-a-vis hillary clinton, these e-mails are so damaging, it is no wonder her untrustworthy numbers, her unfavorables are so high. any other election with any other republican running against someone with this story and these numbers, they would be trouncing her. but because the republicans have nominated donald trump, she is able to lead even with this
7:14 am
baggage. >> his headlines lead the show instead of what's going on. >> right. >> dan, we appreciate it. a woman in florida was shot and killed by a police officer, and a class about police procedures. the chief called the death a 73-year-old mary nol ton a horrible accident. it happened in punta gorda, about 75 miles north of tampa. david begnaud is there. >> reporter: good morning. the entire police department, the blue tent, on the back property, that's we're told the 73-year-old lady was shot and killed in what is being described as a horrible accident. here is how the scenario usually goes. the officer plays the bad guy, the civilian plays the officer. in this case, the 73-year-old lady, walked up to what was believed to be the bad guy, the officer, and he shot her. he should have been using blank rounds, but instead, he had live ammo in his weapon.
7:15 am
it happened just before 7:00 p.m. tuesday night at the public safety complex. mary nolton was among 35 people taking part in this. >> they were selected to be put through a shoot, don't shoot scenario, which they would make decisions lethal force in a live role play. during the first scenario, in a horrible accident, participant, mary nolton was mistakenly struck with a live round. >> reporter: the elderly victim was transported to a local hospital and pronounced dead. her son gave a statement to cbs news, saying this is a devastating time for us. my mom was a sanlts. such a tremendous loss of a wonderful human being, and the best mom a kid could ever hope for. >> our entire police department and all of the city leaders are absolutely devastated for everyone involved in this unimaginable event. >> reporter: nolton was reportedly shot several times,
7:16 am
according to a photographer who was covering the events for the charlotte sun. she was active in the community, volunteering as a board member for her local library group. >> everyone involved is in a state of overwhelming shock and grief. >> reporter: the officer who fired those live rounds is on paid administrative leave this morning. one of the questions people want to know, why was a real gun being used in a fake situation. gayle, i have to tell you, speaking with the police spokesman this morning, she conveyed to me this is a really small community and latddy who died heredy who died here was known to everybody including the police department, who knew her personally. even for law enforcement, it is a personal, devastating loss. >> her son describes her as a saints. you raise a good question. what was a live gun doing there. thousands of delta passengers face a third day of cancelations after the carrier's meltdown. the airline is still scrambling to rebook the flights two days
7:17 am
after the outage. they expect to cancel 90 flights today. canceling 800 yesterday. they're offering a voucher to anyone who was delayed more than three hours. re-rat the rio olympics, mil phelps, the greatest olympic swimmer ever, added two more gold medals to his tally last night. rising star katie ledecky won her second in the pool. women's gymnastics, the u.s. team wiped out the field. ben tracy is near the olympic caldron. >> reporter: good morning, guys. a little dreary here in rio this morning. look what we found for you. this is the official olympic caldron. they tell us it is intentionally small to limit emissions. if you want to look at something really on fire, look at the u.s. teams in the pool and on the
7:18 am
mat. michael phelps let his swimming do the talking, like he always has. the 31-year-old, five time olympian proved he has plenty of gas in the tank, snatching gold. not even a scramble to replace a swim cap could derail phelps from bringing home gold. despite his record setting gold medal haul, which standing at 21, he led the emotion of what will likely be his final olympic show. taking to the crowd to embrace his son and family. the future of american swimming, that might be katie ledecky. the 19-year-old phenom from
7:19 am
maryland. on the mat, the americans grabbed yet another gold. with the women's gymnastics team putting on a clinic. led by 19-year-old simone biles. it was a total team effort, with douglas and koshan, hernandez on the beam, and raisman on the vault. the final five, they call themselves, crushinged the competition, winning by a staggering eight points. so take a look at this. this is what the olympic diving pool looked like yesterday. yeah, that's green water. it is not supposed to look like that. this is what it should look like. crystal blue water. officials here in rio, they don't know why this has happened. the olympic divers say they're keeping their mouths closed. back to you. >> that's a little scary looking. thank you very much, ben. go usa. a hungarian swimmer just won

i drive a golf ball. i drive to the hoop. i drive a racecar. i have a driver. his name is carl. but that's not what we all have in common. we talked to our doctors about treatment with xarelto®. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto® is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, taking warfarin, i had to deal with that blood testing routine.
8:44 am
i couldn't have a healthy salad whenever i wanted. i found another way. yeah, treatment with xarelto®. hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is the number one prescribed blood thinner in its class. well that calls for a round of kevin nealons. make mine an arnold palmer. same here. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®.
