7:01 am
and good morning, america. we both love that song. >> great song. >> could be the theme song of patriots fans this morning. wondering where their star quarterback is. we're going to get into that tom brady mystery coming up. and olympian ryan lochte facing more questions about his future after the million-dollar mistake in rio. more sponsors dropping the star. what is next for him? let's get to the race for more e-mails causing more trouble for hillary clinton. donald trump attacking her on the stump last night. striking different chords on his immigration plan. jon karl is on the campaign trail in cleveland. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, george. trump did strike a different tone on immigration in an interview last night on fox news. at his rally in ohio, he was on message, opening up a new line of attack against hillary clinton. overnight, donald trump struck a different tone on immigration, saying he only wants to follow
7:02 am
>> we'll get rid of the bad ones. we have gang members, we have killers, we have a lot of bad people that have to get out of this country. as far as the rest, we're going through the process like they are now, perhaps with a lot more energy. we're going to do it only through the system of laws. >> reporter: he cited president obama's record on deportations. >> what people don't know is that obama got tremendous numbers of people out of the country. i'm going to do the same thing. >> reporter: before a large and enthusiastic crowd in akron, ohio, trump took the fight to hillary clinton. >> i just get the feeling we're to going win in a landslide. >> calling for a special prosecutor to investigate her. >> after the fbi and department of justice whitewashed hillary clinton's e-mail crimes, they certainly cannot be trusted to quickly or impartially investigate hillary clinton's new crimes, which happen all the
7:03 am
teleprompter, trump kept his aim squarely on the clintons. >> the clintons made the state department into the same kind of pay-for-play operation as the arkansas government was. pay the clinton foundation huge sums of money and throw in big speaking fees for bill clinton, and you got to play. >> reporter: before last night's mostly white audience, trump once again told minority voters that democrats had failed th >> crime, all of the problems, to the african-americans, who i employ so many, so many people, to the hispanics, tremendous people, what the hell do you have to lose? give me a chance. i'll straighten it out. >> reporter: while making his latest appeal to minorities, trump sure didn't sound like a candidate who's softening on
7:04 am
>> we're going to build a wall, folks. that wall will go up so fast, your head will spin. and you'll say, you know, he meant it. and you know what else i mean? mexico is going to pay for the wall. >> reporter: trump had planned a big speech on immigration this week. that's now been put on hold. his aides say he's still working on the the details. amy? >> thank you, jon karl. brian ross joins us with more on the newly released e-mails involving the clinton foundation and a top advisor to hillary clinton when she was secretary of state. good morning, brian. >> reporter: good morning, amy. this new batch of the e-mails appears to show how friends of the clintons appear to have sought special access when she was secretary of state, precisely what she promised not to at her confirmation hearings. it was her promise under oath that there would be no special treatment for donors to the clinton foundation. >> that will not influence, it
7:05 am
>> reporter: the e-mails show the crown prince of bahrain, after first trying normal channels, was only able to arrange a meeting with the secretary of state after intervention by the clinton foundation, to which his government had given between $50,000 and $100,000. clinton foundation executive doug ban wrote to clinton's aid, huma abedin, that the crown prince was a gd ours. the meeting was arranged within 48 hours. offering bahrain cp 10:00 tomorrow for meeting with hrc, the initials of hillary rodham clinton. >> mrs. clinton and her staff treated the the state department as an arm of the clinton foundation. >> i'd like to invite to the stage -- >> reporter: as previously reported by abc news, another big foundation donor was appointed to a sensitive international security board by secretary clinton even though he had no known experience in the
7:06 am
mr. fernando, brian ross, abc news. when we first reported on the connection, he went after our cameras and threatened to have us arrested. >> you will be arrested. >> i'll be arrested for asking questions of this man? >> reporter: he resigned after we raised questions about his appointment. we spotted him at that convention as a clinton superdelegate. >> i'm trying to help secretary clinton get elected. >> reporter: the new e-mails were obtained by a group called judicial watch. a clinton campaign spokesperson dismissed as a right wing organization that's been going after the clintons since the 1990s. they said despite those e-mails, clinton never took action as secretary of state because of the donations to the clinton foun foundation. that's their response, amy. >> all right, brian, thank you. >> let's get more from matt dowd. the foundation. 14,900 e-mails now being called to come out before the election. the judge has to decide that. donald trump calling for a
7:07 am
saying they're going to have to shut the foundation down. is that the way to fix it? >> it's a big problem, george, for two reasons. it reinforces the idea that you can't trust hillary clinton. all this stuff adds to that. the second thing is it points to washington and says it's corrupt, it's out of control, which is donald trump's message. to me, the only way to fix this is a clean break. if i were them, i'd call up the gates foundation and say, hey, can we turn this whole operation over to you and operation to them and get out of that business. >> donald trump, we're getting some slightly mixed signals on the immigration plan. he said on the stump, we're going to build the wall. he goes on "bill o'reilly" and basically seems to say that he's going to enforce the laws that are on the books right now, sort of intensify what president obama is doing but not repeating that he's going to do a mass deportation force. how much of a shift are we seeing? how much difference will it make? >> i think we saw a slight shift. now we're seeing another shift
7:08 am
i think this is a good message for his base. the group of voters, 40% or 41% of the vote he'll get. the problem donald trump has is he has to get somewhere north of 35% of the latino vote to win the presidential election. the message back and forth and the stuff about the wall is not going to help him there. it does help him with the group of voters that are solid for him. >> meanwhile, all presidential campaigns try to define their opponent. i think what we're seeing here, donald trump's speech last night, hillary clinton planning a speech about what she calls his all right base on thursday, an intensification like we've never seen before, both campaigns making this all about the opponent. >> well, that's what's interesting and different. we have about 75 days left in this, george. you can mark this down. whoever this race is most about in this campaign is going to lose. that's what we're going to see in the course of the campaign. >> that's why we're seeing what we're seeing on the campaign
7:09 am
george, it is hurricane season and we have three tropical systems now brewing in the atlantic. one is gaston, on the verge of becoming a hurricane. ginger is here with the latest. good morning. >> good morning. we're weeks away from the peak of hurricane season. the atlantic is showing up as it typically does. fiona, dying out. gaston as you mentioned but that's going to become a fish storm. our eyes are on this wave in the eastern caribbean right now that looks like modeling trying to take it into the northern caribbean. the next 48 hours, it has a 60% shot of developing into a named tropical depression or tropical storm. the conditions are great water- wise. plenty of warm water, a lot of dry air it has to fight through. i would like to see in the next couple of days, a lot of gelling of our computer models. right now one takes it to florida, another totally kills it. we'll keep our eyes on it.
7:10 am
dozens burning from california to washington, out of control, forcing hundreds of evacuations. clayton sandell is on the scene in spokane county, washington. good morning, clayton. >> reporter: good morning, george. it's a smokey sunshine in washington state. this is one of ten homes that firefighters say was destroyed by the fire south of spokane. this and scenes like it are repeating all over the west this morning. overnight fires across the west, in california six fires burning, firefighters working around the clock, hundreds of homes destroyed. >> sad. just want to help. >> reporter: on california's central coast, a 52-square mile blaze, forcing thousands to evacuate their homes. 34 homes burned to the ground there along with 14 other structures. >> gone up in flames. it's a gut wrencher. it hurts. >> reporter: in washington state
7:11 am
we went to find firefighters on the front line, working hard to make sure that number doesn't go up. we're on the fire line. the flames are moving down the hill, toward this house. right down here, you can see, a line of firefighters hoping to protect that house and keep it from burning down. this morning, crews are working to contain at least seven fast-moving wildfires wreaking havoc throughout the state. and this morning, there are also large fires burning in oregon, montana, and wyoming. officials tell us that means resources, everything from firefighters to air tankers, are stretched thin. amy? >> clayton sandell, thank you. now to a possible isis-inspired attack in virginia. the fbi investigating a suspect known to authorities and is accused of stabbing two people on saturday night. abc's david wright is here with the latest on that. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, amy. apparently he didn't just stab them. authorities believe he tried to behead his victims.
7:12 am
attack may have been an act of terrorism inspired by isis. an urgent call for paramedics in the immediate aftermath of a knife attack saturday night. >> there's two patients. one with a leg laceration. he's got a tourniquet applied by police. one male subject with a necklace rags. >> reporter: the couple returning home to their complex at the pines complex in roanoke told police a stranger jumped them. the attacker shouted akbar, god is great, as he wielded his knife, seriously injuring both people. 20-year-old wasil farooky is now in custody. sources tell abc news, the fbi is investigating whether the suspect was trying to behead his victims in an isis-inspired assault. federal authorities say they've been aware of farouki for some time. and that during the past year, he travelled to turkey and may have tried to sneak into syria, where isis has been recruiting
7:13 am
sympathizers. >> they seek to send operatives to kill people in their name in the united states if they can. >> reporter: the fbi director recently warned that isis is reaching out to troubled souls worldwide, hoping to recruit potential killers. >> if they can't send an operative or inspire someone to travel, they hope to motivate people to kill on their behalf. >> reporter: the fbi director says the bureau is tracking about 800 people in all 50 states who have consumed isis propaganda online. the tricky part for them is trying to figure out who was just watching it and who might be motivated. now to the latest on bowe bergdahl, the army sergeant captured by the taliban after walking away from his post in afghanistan. the army has charged him with dez ergs which could mean life in prison. now his lawyers are moving to dismiss the case. linzie janis is here with more. >> reporter: good morning, george. bergdahl's lawyers are suggesting that the military
7:14 am
charge bergdahl was biased. they want him disqualified and the charges dropped. bowe bergdahl back in court. the 30-year-old's lawyers trying to get the desertion and other charges against him thrown out in a series of high-stakes hearings. >> sergeant bergdahl has been basically in a holding pattern for over two years. >> reporter: he was freed in 2014 in a controversial prisoner swap with the taliban. he had been held prisoner for five years. after walking off his post in afghanistan. the army sergeant's attorneys trying to convince a judge monday that the u.s. military mishandled his case, arguing that general robert abrams, the four-star general who recommended bergdahl face court martial, should not have been able to make that recommendation because of his knowledge of bergdahl's five years in captivity. >> we get bergdahl who was a traitor and they get five of the greatest killers that they've wanted for eight years.
7:15 am
that repeated comments -- >> remember sergeant bergdahl? >> sergeant bergdahl's's >> reporter: could affect his ability to get a fair trial. the judge has ordered general abrams to testify on wednesday either in person or by phone. if the judge were to disqualify him, it would rewind the clock on the case, allowing another commander to decide if he should be punished at all. amy? >> thank you. breaking news from afghanistan. an been killed. another injured in hellman province after their patrol struck an improvised explosive device. this comes just one day after we learn that the u.s. is deploying 100 troops to the capitol of that prove vens which is in danger of being captured by the tel taliban. they were helping afghans boost security in that region. to that football mystery
7:16 am
world is tom brady, the quarterback missing from preseason games and practice. ryan smith is here with the latest. good morning. >> good morning. tom brady is football's ironman, never one to miss a practice when healthy, let alone games. after lining up a series of no shows, fans and even teammates are wondering where he could be. with less than three weeks before the nfl season begins -- >> touchdown! >> reporter: this morning tom brady, football's main man, is nowhere to be found on the field. after missing two straight games to start the preseason, the new england patriots excusing their four-time super bowl winner from practice for personal reasons. what reasons? head coach bill belichick was typically mum on the subject. >> i don't comment on personal situations. >> i don't comment on personal situations. >> reporter: okay, but even the backup at quarterback, jimmy garoppolo, seemed mystified. >> you're guess is as good as mine. >> reporter: the superstar quarterback experiencing a deflating summer to say the least.
7:17 am
games of the season after losing his deflate-gate federal appeal in july, brady is allowed to practice in the preseason. he missed the first two games due to a family member's memorial. before preseason game two, he seemed fired up, posting this on facebook. who's ready for some football tonight? but he wasn't. slicing his finger with scissors, reportedly trying to pry something out of the bottom of his complete the game shortly before kickoff. >> i thought he was going to start. it's how we roll. you always have to be ready. >> reporter: some reports saying brady is expected to practice today. hopefully putting an end to the nfl's version of where's waldo. all right. brady fans, don't panic. star players occasionally miss preseason practices for noninjury reasons. like him missing practice last year for deflategate court dates. when the games do count, his

this is my body of proof. proof of less joint pain. and clearer skin. this is my body of proof that i can fight psoriatic arthritis with humira. humira works by targeting and helping to block a specific source of inflammation that ntributes to both joint and skin symptoms. it's proven to help relieve pain, stop further joint damage, and clear skin in many adults.

and a scary moment for amusement park riders. a hershey park roller coaster came to a stop, stranding riders for 30 minutes before they could safely get down. officials investigating why the ride came to a halt. and take a look at this movie poster. it's getting a lot of reaction this morning because of something that's there that shouldn't be. can you spot it? we're going to get into that coming up in just a bit. >> it doesn't look like anything is in the right place. that's all coming up. we're going to move on now to a gripping courtroom drama in georgia. a former executive is accused of murdering the the husband of his mistress. he admits to the shooting ou 2010. jurors decide if he is mentally ill or a cold-blooded murderer. abc's linsey davis is tracking the case. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. what motivated hemy neuman to kill a man outside of that georgia daycare depends on who you believe. prosecutors say he's an adulterer or a murderer. now it's up to a jury to decide.
7:32 am
that's good old-fashioned murder. >> reporter: this morning, for the second time, a jury is deliberating the case of hemy neuman, a former g.e. executive who admits he shot rusty sneiderman outside a day care in 2010 but claims he's not guilty by reason of insanity. >> if hemy neuman was faking his mental illness, if he planned this thinking all along, i'm going to say i was mentally ill, he could have done a better job. >> reporter: but prosecutors say neuman had a premeditated plan to kill sneiderman, a father of two, as he dropped his 2-year-old son off at daycare. the motive? neuman was having an affair with andrea and was obsessed with her. >> rusty had something he wanted. the only way he was going to get that something was to kill the man that had it. >> reporter: back in 2012, a jury found neuman guilty but mentally ill.
7:33 am
overturned the conviction, ruling his mental health records should not have been a part of the evidence. in the second trial, his defense team is weighing heavily on the testimony of a psychologist. >> that he had undiagnosed and untreated by polar disorder. >> reporter: they say he was visited by a demon with the voice of barry white and an angel with a voice like olivia newton-john. >> you will come to the right verdict. that is hemy neuman is not guilty by reason of insanity. >> reporter: if delusion does not exist, you must convict. >> reporter: prosecutors say he isn't delusional. he's simply a selfish murderer. >> he wanted something that someone else had. he was going to do whatever it took to get it, including that, committing murder. >> reporter: the victim's wife, andrea sneiderman is out on parole after being convicted of perjury for lying under oath.
7:34 am
to do with the murder of her husband. the question is not if he's guilty. the question is, is he insane? >> let's take that question to nancy grace. nancy, the host of "nancy grace" on hln. thanks for joining us again this morning. convicted the first time. gets the retrial on a technicality. how much of a chance does he have? >> well, i tell you, i think it's going to be second verse same as the first. the defense can't get over the hurdle that they're lying about a sex affair. this is old as david and bathsheba. he sees her. she works for him. he falls in love with her. there are hundreds and hundreds of e-mails between the two. they would go on trips together. work trips. where she would ask for adjoining rooms. he asked her to marry him. dinners. flowers. romance. i don't know how they can deny the elephant in the room. they're saying that the sex affair was just a delusion. well, right there, you lose the
7:35 am
not only that, there are videotapes of him talking behind bars where he says, well, poisoning would be impossible. stabbing would be too messy. a week before, this young father is gunned down outside the day care where he drops off his 2-year-old son, he was caught lying in the bushes outside the people's home, trying to kill him then. i'll tell you what happened the first time. they got guilty but mentally ill. that's the worst possibility for because, you go to a treatment facility and then when you get well, you go to jail. and he had great lawyers the first time. as a matter of fact, one of his first lawyers, bob ruben, was my public defender for years. i tried cases against him. very good lawyer. i don't see how they can pull this out. >> you made a strong case for the prosecution. last time around, andrea sneiderman played a key role in the case. she was used by both the prosecution and the defense.
7:36 am
>> i think that is a mistake. because, last time, the defense said, yes, hemy neuman had the gun in his hand. but andrea sneiderman pulled the trigger because of their relationship. it's not going to work. they're trying to deny this relationship. they're claiming he saw a demon that was barry white. remember him? i can't get enough of your love, baby. and the angel was olivia newton-john. that's the extent of his mental il no jury in their right mind is going to buy this. i can tell you this much, juries don't like it when you hide something from them. it's best to just put the whole thing out there and argue your case. and with the defense arguing there was no sex affair and no motive for murder, they're going to lose the jury and the beginning of the closing statement. >> you put your case out there. nancy grace, thank you very much. >> thank you. all right, now to a terrifying home invasion caught
7:37 am
a burglar with an assault rifle breaking into a home. police believe this was just one of his stops in georgia. abc's steve osunsami has the latest. >> reporter: georgia investigators are hoping someone who sees this video can identify this gunman, caught on nanny cam, robbing a young couple's home in atlanta. watch as the man is seen here entering the home while the family was away with what police believe was an ak-47. police say he stole a flat screen, a laptop and jewelry. >> he seems to be by himself as far as we know. we're not sure. >> reporter: this is not where police say he began thieving. investigators say the same man is a suspect in at least three other robberies four miles up the road. and just an hour earlier, police believe he was robbing another home, and this time, barbara lyles anderson was home. >> he said lay on the bed with your face in the pillow. and that's when i thought, okay, he's going to rape me and then he's going to murder me. >> reporter: she says he got in
7:38 am
and kept her in the bedroom while he searched for cash, jewelry, and then walked off with her flat screen tv. >> i started to cry a little bit. it was after i had given him everything. he said, don't cry. you'll be okay. i'm leaving. >> reporter: police believe he's the same person who robbed a woman a week ago in a park nearby. they produced this police sketch to help find the suspect, and they're underlining this morning how helpful the home videos can be. for "good morning america," steve osunsami, abc news, atlanta. >> boy is th our thanks to steve osunsami for that. coming up on our big board. million-dollar mistake. the major sponsors dropping ryan lochte after his scandal with rio. can the olympian recover? and fashion giant zara accused of duping customers. did they overcharge millions? and cheap flight day is officially here. how you can save big bucks on airfare. we'll talk about it in two minutes. air fair.

we'll get to your story in a bit. we're going to begin with another tough day for ryan lochte. speedo, ralph lauren, airweave, all ending their sponsorships of lochte after that scandal in rio. espn's darren ra vel joins us now. pretty devastating day, a million dollar hit. when you think about it, ryan lochte actually faired well. what am i talking about? actually, most of the marketing is done leading up to the olympics and t olympics. ryan lochte made off with most of his money. the ralph lauren deal had ended. they just said they will not renew him. it's not clear that he'll be back for the 2020 games so what would speedo have to do with him coming to an end of a ten-year deal. ryan actually faired pretty well. yes, $1 million loss. but he did make most of his money. >> ryan did release a statement regarding speedo's announcement. he said, i respect speedo's decision and am grateful for the opportunities that our partnership has afforded me over the years.
7:42 am
can he parlay this into something good? >> first let's talk about the details. overnight there has not been anything new from the brazilian authorities and you can consider that new in itself. because, one, the fight that they said happened did not happen as we know yet. the vandalism in the bathroom, we still haven't seen any evidence of that. no broken mirror. no broken door. it seems like they were paying for a sandwich advertisement. that's one. if the story does not change, ryan lochte is looking better. so that's one. two, it depends on what ryan lochte wants to be. does he want to be an a-list star? b-list star? with the medals around his neck? or does he want to do the whole bar scene, club scene. he could make a lot of money in vegas at the day clubs. i would say one more thing. remember this, his social media following is up 15% since the olympics started.
7:43 am
thank you so much, darren. we appreciate it. now to a new lawsuit that could send shock waves through the fashion industry. the suit is claiming that zara, the fashion giant frequented by celebrities used deceptive practices in the u.s. unjustly enriching the brand to the tunes of billions of dollars. sunny hostin is here now. what exactly, sunny, does this suit allege? >> it's alleging that zara used bait and switch pricing. you think you're getting this high-end fashion at affordable prices. more. for example, in the lawsuit they say this customer, devin rose, loved this shirt, saw the price of $9.95. actually, it was $9.95 euros. he goes to the cash register, ends up paying $17.90 per shirt. the actual true converted rate should have been $11.26. we're talking about zara, the company everyone loves, i use all the time, but people may be
