>> reporter: good morning. here is an inconvenient fact for donald trump. the accusations of sexual assault made by numerous women are more credible than his charges that this election is or will be marred by voter fraud. nevertheless, trump says the whole question of voter fraud is pure fiction and voter fraud is a real deal. the problem for trump, evidence to support both is hard to find. >> what a waste. what a waste. they all say it won't be a waste. you'll be in the history books. let me tell you something, folks. i don't want to be in the history books, i want to win. >> reporter: amid problematic poll numbers, donald trump continued to whale about voter fraud. >> i will leem immigrants are voting. >> reporter: dredging up research from 2012. trump said it's possible more than 24 million voters are registered improperly and some may be non-citizens. however, trump ignored numerous studies showing actual voter fraud rarely occurs.
>> your politicians don't tell you about this. >> reporter: ever the negotiator, trump said he might take those potentially invalid votes. >> if they're going to vote for me, we'll think about it, right? but i have a feeling her' not going to vote for me. >> reporter: trump has delivered none of the refuted evidence about the sexual complaints. >> hillary clinton is the most corrupt person ever to run for the presidency of the united states. >> hello? how are you? hi. >> reporter: still this famous 2005 "access hollywood" video has had a toxic effect. 40% of registered voters now think worse of trump. a majority now believe the video reflects his current attitude about women. >> he's very passionate about american people. >> reporter: trump's wife melania had this to say. >> he would never do that. that -- everything was organized
and put together to hurt him, to hurt his candidacy. >> reporter: while trump said he has nothing to apologize for. >> you can't apologize for an event that never took place. these events never took place. >> reporter: trump tweeted yesterday that large scale voter fraud is going on now. when pressed on this subject he said, oh, he meant previous elections. three republican secretaries of state said trump's allegations of voter fraud are over blown and voters we talked to in numerous battleground states yesterday told us they are not concerned this election will be tainted. >> all right. 21 days and counting. thank you, major. melania trump could have hard time shifting opinions about her husband. our cbs news poll asked voters if they think trump respects women. 61% said not much or not at all. janet crawford looks at how the candidate's wife is now trying to fight off charges of abuse and sexism against trump. jan, good morning.
>> reporter: melania trump said she does not believe her husband's accusers. it was somewhat of a melania media blitz. she sat down for one interview with cnn, the other with fox news. she said the women who have come forward with claims of groping or sexual assault have no evidence her husband did anything wrong. >> i said to my husband that, you know, the language is inappropriate. it's not acceptable and i was surprised because that is not the man that i know. >> reporter: melania trump insists the man bragging on that 2005 tape after the couple got married is not her donald trump. >> and when you're a star they let you do it. you can do anything. >> do anything you want. >> grab them by the [ bleep ]. do anything. >> she said trump was provoked that day. >> kind of boy talk and that he was egged on from host to say
dirty and bad stuff. >> you feel the host, billy bush, was egging him on? >> yes. yes. >> is that what it is to you, just locker room talk? >> yeah. it's kind of two teenage boys. actually, they should behave better, right? >> he was 59. >> correct. and sometimes i said i have two boys at home. i have my young son and i have my husband. >> reporter: the comments are the first from mrs. trump since the republican national convention when parts of her speech were lifted from michelle obama's 2008 address. mrs. trump told fox news the media never gave her a fair shake and that means bill clinton's history is fair game. >> is it fair ft. meade yeah to bring up bill clinton's past or for donald trump to bring up bill clinton's past? >> if they bring up my past, why not? >> so they're asking for it? >> they're asking for it. they start it.
they start it from the -- from the beginning of the campaign. >> reporter: now miss trump was not asked about the rnc speech in either interview. she said on cnn if she became the first lady she would be focused on fighting online negativity and bullying on social media. she called her husband's decision his decision and he knows the consequences. donald trump is using fbi documents to launch a new attack on hillary clinton. the bureau released interview notes and summaries from its investigation of clinton's private e-mail servers. the files show a top state department official asked the fbi to declassify a single message. that item was left unchanged. nancy cordes has gone through the fbi papers. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the clinton campaign is trying to distance itself from this controversy. aides say they weren't aware of this conversation between a state department under secretary and an fbi official, but it will be harder for clinton to distance herself from some of
the other details just released by the fbi. as part of their investigation into clinton's e-mail servers, fbi agents interviewed a former diplomatic security agent who served briefly on clinton's protective detail. this one agent described a stark difference between clinton and her predecessor, condoleezza rice. clinton, the agent said, frequently and blat taplay tent disregarded protocol. she chose to ride in an armored limousine with her top aide instead of with local u.s. ambassadors which frequently caused complaints who were insulted and embarrassed by breach of protocol. the treatment of agents was so contemptuous that many of them sought reassignment. by the end of clinton's tenure it was difficult to find senior agents willing to work for her. >> this is worse than watergate. >> reporter: trump focused
monday on another fbi interview with an fbi employee who said he felt pressured to change a classified e-mail from classified to unclassified as part of a quid pro quo between the fbi and under secretary of state patrick kennedy. the fbi said in exchange he was told state would reciprocate by allowing the fbi to place more agents in countries where they are presently forbidden. >> this is felony corruption by any standard. this is one of the great miscarriages of justice in the history of this country. >> reporter: both the fbi and the state department insist there was no quid pro quo. one spokesman called it a misunderstanding. >> any really assertion that this was somehow tit-for-tat or quid pro quo exchange in that manner really frankly is insulting. >> reporter: the good news for clinton is that the fbi was releasing its investigation notes in four batches and this was the last batch.
the bad news is congressional republicans say they think that this supposed quid pro quo between the state department and fbi was a violation of the law and they're vowing to hold more hearings. susan page is "usa today's" washington bureau chief. it raises questions. >> it does. it looks inappropriate for them to be pressuring the fbi to change the classification of an e-mail for what is essentially a political purpose. we don't think it happened. it wasn't reclassified. it raises questions. it would be very serious if we weren't so consumed on other things. >> there's also the question of ip tent. >> yes. and the -- whether there is a cover up, whether there is collusion on trying to handle and minimize the political damage from this e-mail scandal that has dogged hillary clinton all year. >> "usa today" front page of
your paper, susan, raising a very interesting story about the intersection of the clinton foundation donors, the state department lobbyists and fundraisers for the clinton campaign. what are you all finding out? >> well, we're finding out things that are not illegal but may alarm americans, which is a kind of coziness among different things. >> something that's never good in politics. not a good thing. >> here's an example. they give 1 to $5 million to the clinton foundation. they lobby the state department on provisions of the state partnership, the t.p.p. deal in the works. one of their lobbyists becomes a fund-raiser for the hillary clinton campaign. none of that is illegal, but americans might look at that and say, who is looking out for me when this kind of thing is going on? >> people with money have special privileges. >> not surprising, not illegal but maybe disturbing. >> the state of this campaign, we learned from hillary clinton's campaign yesterday they are going to expand the
map, specifically the traditional red state of arizona. michelle obama who has probably given the two most important political speeches at the convention and last week is going to arizona. can they expand this map? will it work or is it political jujitsu? >> look at the states they're expanding into. states with competitive senate elections, arizona, indiana, missouri. those aren't the senate races that will get her to 50, get democrats control of the senate but they would pad the democratic majority. so you see hillary clinton feeling confident enough about winning the election that she is looking down ballot to help other democrats. >> millennials will be the largest voting lock in this election. you wrote a piece today. are they going to turn out? who are they going to vote for? >> you know, we've been looking at whether the very negative tone of this campaign is going to increase or not because people will be afraid of the alternative or will it depress
turnout because of the tone being so negative and contentious. in the "usa today" rock the vote poll, we find millennials are getting turned off. enthusiasm is declining from the last poll declining since it peaked in march. that was a time that bernie sanders was getting a lot of support from millennials. that enthusiasm has not been replaced despite big efforts. >> you have a 20 something voter. it's like your brother and sister fighting only dirtier. that has not left others feeling like there's something they're voting for instead of voting against. >> susan, always good to have you here. thank you so much. >> thank you. the final presidential debate is tomorrow night and gayle and i will be in las vegas along with major, nancy and john dickerson. our coverage is 6:00 p.m. eastern time. the secret service is joining the investigation of a firebombing at a local republican headquarters. campaign volunteers returned to work outside the orange county office yesterday. this attack destroyed campaign

aftermath of four u.s. coalition airstrikes that destroyed them. colonel lewis told us the extremists fought to their death. do you think that isis has dug tunnels underneath mosul as well? >> translator: for sure, he told us. suicide car bombs and tunnels. that's how isis fights. these u >> reporter: these used to be farming communities, but they fled two years ago. now it's an apocalyptic landscape. in the days before the offensive began the u.s. coalition softened the ground with airstrikes inside the city of mosul. these are strikes on isis weapons facilities according to the coalition. there are thought to be fewer than 5,000 isis fighters left in mosul but also around 1 million civilians. isis is preventing them from leaving using them as human shields, but some are managing to get out and coming to over crowded camps like this one.
here's an english teacher who fled the town south of mosul. >> you cannot -- you cannot sleep well without fear. what's the fear? the fear is you cannot guess whether they will take you from your bed and kill you. >> reporter: the kurdish fighters say they killed 80 isis extremists yesterday eradicating isis in a city of 1 million people will be much more difficult. many people here in iraq expected to take months. norah. >> holly williams in iraq. thank you so much. russian and syrian war planes have reportedly halted airstrikes this morning on aleppo. the pause comes to let the rebels leave the besieged city along with sick and wounded people. human rights group says russian war planes pounded aleppo before the strikes were suspended. a retired general who was one of america's top military
