good morning to our viewers in the west. it's monday, july 24th, 207. we're learning more about what jared kushner is telling the senate committee this morning. more details including one with donald trump jr. inside of trump tower. plus we'll talk to o.j. simpson's lawyer about the plan after he walks away from a nevada prison. but first, here's today's eye opener. >> new details about a deadly human trafficking tragedy in texas. >> many suffered from extreme ded dehydration. >> more than 100 people packed inside an on on wheels.
>> jared kushner arrived at capitol hill. he released a detailed 1 page opening statements. president trump believes he has a communications problem and not a political one. >> people across the northeast are under flash flood watches and warnings this morning. the massive system already hammered the midwest. >> as you can see behind me, it's already 2 feet above it's flood stage and it's expected to rise even further. >> in a new documentary prince william and prince harry share memories of their mom. >> what we're learning is how much in private they just adored her sheer playfulness. >> a new jersey man played his cards and now he is 8 million dollars richer. >> scott bloomstein won the world series of poker. >> a deuce and a deuce only will get him the main event title. >> it's the deuce. the river comes home.
>> nora is off. white house senior adviser jared kushner is testifying this morning about his contact with russia officials and business men. the senate intelligence committee is expected to question the president's son-in-law about why he initially failed to disclose the meetings. >> in a statement released this morning kushner denies that the trump campaign colluded with russia. nancy is on capitol hill with a preview of kushner's testimony good morning. >> good morning, he knows he is a key focus of the russia investigation and he has released 11 pages of testimony aimed at showing that he has nothing to hide. in it he says that any meetings that he had with russian dignitaries were brief and routine and he goes into quite a bit of detail about that now infamous meeting that he attended with don jr. and a russian lawyer in june of 2016. kushner says he didn't read
through the entire e-mail chain beforehand so he didn't know that trump jr. had said that he was open to getting russian dirt on hillary clinton. kushner says he got to the meeting late they were talking about adoptions and he felt the meeting was so pointless he e-mailed his assistant asking can you please call me on my cell i need an excuse to get out of this meeting. kushner also disputes reports that he tried to set up a secret back channel with russia. in a meeting before his father-in-law was inaugurated. kushner says he did ask about using the russian embassy to communicate but only to discuss syria during the transition. after he is grilled in the senate intelligence committee today, jeff, kushner is expected to go before the house intelligent committee to go through the same ordeal tomorrow. >> thank you very much. president trump is set to deliver new remarks this afternoon on health care. the president criticized republicans last night on twitter. he warned if they do not, quote,
repeal and replace the disastrous obamacare the repercussions will be far greater than any of them understand. the senate plans about tomorrow on health care. what's in the legislation remains a history and it's not there if republicans have the votes necessary to begin debate much less pass the bill. >> they'll work to refocus white house messaging. new communications director promises a reboot, the wall street investor appeared frequently on cable tv defending the president before he joined the administration in a series of sunday show interviews scaramucci said he would create what he called a positive mojo with the media. some seemed to be directed at one particular viewer. >> we'll operate a strategy that will knock the sox off of people. i love the guy. i spent the last 18 months supporting him unyieldingly. he's a phenomenal fighter for the american people. he's very very good to the people that are super close to him. look at how great his kids
turned out. you can't fake good kids. if i said some things about him when i was working for another candidate, mr. trump, mr. president i apologize for that but i'm going to be working for you and i'm going to serve the american people and get your agenda out into the heartland and we're going to turn this thing into a movement. a bigger movement than we have already. >> i love how you're talking to one specific viewer already. the most important audience that there is. >> what viewer is that? i'm thinking the president likes his style. >> i think he loves him as much as scaramucci says he loves the president. >> he said he'll take action to stop leaks in the white house. >> o.j. simpson is serving his final months in prison after winning parole. they believe he's a potential target for other inmates. they granted him his freedom last week after serving 9 years of his 33 year sentence for armed robbery and kidnapping.
malcolm laverne represented him at the parole hearing. he joins us now from las vegas. tell me why he's in protective custody? >> mr. simpson is a hybrid. he's not in protected custody or general population. it's a hybrid and they're making sure no one takes shots at him or no one on the outside is asking people on the inside to take some last minute shot for fame or knnoterity. he is a people person. loves people. loves to interact with them and always enjoyed restrictions at the prison for nine years this is a bummer for him but i made it clear would he like for his parole to have been denied and stay in gen pop or his parole have been granted and be restricted and he's in between and he's going to have to deal with it. >> have there been threats against him? >> from my viewpoint, yes. yes, there have been threats
from the outside against him. >> i want to go back to the parole hearing that day, last week did you cringe when o.j. simpson said i basically lead a conflict free life? many people were very upset about that remark considering the well-known documentation of his abuse against nicole brown simpson? >> no, i didn't cringe at all. i thought that's an appropriate remark to make. he's age 70. he is very very, he's one of the most famous and notorious people on the planet and if you look at the 70 years you're thinking of a couple of incidents in his life but for most of his life he's lead a very good life as a good citizen. >> but it was really more than a couple of incidents. it wasn't just a couple of incidents. >> well, yeah i think it's just a couple of incidents and, in fact, this is the only time that he's actually been convicted and i think people have to realize that he's now a convicted felon. he's going to be on the outside living his life as a convicted felon on parole. society has had it's pound of flesh against mr. simpson and
when it comes out that needs to be respected that whatever society had against mr. simpson it's time to move on from that and he's going to try to enjoy his life with family and friends. >> the goldmans were on here last week and they said that mr. simpson has paid less than 1% of the civil payment against him. they have received less than 1% of that. does he plan on paying more? >> no, nobody cares about the goldman's judgment. >> the courts care about it don't they? >> no, it's a private lawsuit between the goldmans are free to do whatever they want with that judgment and do whatever, collect on it. i have gotten a big judgment against some people and it's by obligation to collect on that judgment. the goldmans can go around doing whatever they want collecting on the judgment and also getting their book advances for half a million dollars, $250,000, anything they want to do. that's up to the goldmans. >> but your client doesn't want to willingly pay any money. >> it's not his obligation to pay them any money. >> it's not his obligation even
though there was a judgment? >> no. >> a legal judgment against him. >> it's a civil judgment. it's their obligation to use, there's all kinds of things to collect on a civil judgment but that's not even on mr. simpson's radar screen. >> what is on his radar screen? what does he plan to do with his life? >> he is going to go out and do what he was doing right before which is to golf and spend a lot of time with his family and a lot of time with his friends. >> he also said he wants to go to the grave of nicole simpson. i'd like to hear your thoughts. >> no he hasn't. he didn't say that. >> there are reports that he plans to go visit the grave. is that true? >> he's planning to visit, there are family members that passed away since he has been incarcerated and that bums him out that he wasn't there to grieve with his loved ones and these people have been burr rid so he plans to go to honor the graves of the members that passed away while he was incarcerated. >> the report said he was
planning to go to nicole brown simpson's grave, is that incorrect? >> yeah, that's false. >> well, that's good to know a lot of people consider that insensitive. that's good to know that you can clear that up. where does he plan to live? there are reports he's going to live in florida. is that true? >> that's the plan. correct. and that was discussed at the parole hearing that's why they had the interstate compact, the guy that did that is a specialist and he's good. all the people at the nevada department after parole very highly skilled people. it's in the works right now. a lot of paperwork has to be done and completed for him to be able to be released timely so that's going to be the location that he's going to wind up at. that's not 10% but that's where he's going to wind up is in florida. >> what are your concerns as he prepares to leave prison and face life on the outside? what concerns do you have for him? people have negative feelings. he has positive feelings i know but there's still a lot of negative feelings about o.j.
simpson in this country. >> he's going to focus on the people that have positive feelings about him. what good does it do him to focus on what people think about him negatively. he's polarizing and i get that and he's going to focus on the positives and one of the things that we'll address as a focal point i'm not sure what his plans are other than to just remain a retiree but he feels he is being pimped out a lot by people capitalizing on his notoriety and you see it every day, people writing books, eem doing tv shows so that, that kind of rubs him the wrong way and i'm not sure why people have been doing it for a quarter of a century but it's rubbing him the wrong way right now so to the extent that we can we'll start addressing. >> hanukkah for your time this morning. >> thank you very much. it's a pleasure. >> could the food you eat slow the spread of the disease? whether a diet of fruits vegetables and whole grains can slow the symptoms of multiple

than the standard treatment. eliquis had both... ...and that turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you. intrzero alcohol™.ine® it delivers a whole mouth clean with a less intense taste. so it has the bad breath germ-killing power of this... with the lighter feel... of this.
