5:10 pm
5:11 pm
5:12 pm
now to decision 2016. for the first time massachusetts senator elizabeth warren joined hillary clinton to campaign in the battleground state of ohio. senator warren is widely considered a top contender to be clinton's running mate, and she lent her star power to clinton during a rally in cincinnati. the senator teed off on donald trump over his 2007 comments about being excited the housing market was about to crash. >> what kind of a man roots for people to lose their jocks, to lose their homes, to lose their life's savings? i'll tell you what kind of a man, a small, insecure, money grubber who fights for no one but himself. >> leer he's what presumptive republican nominee donald trump will to say about the clinton/warren duo today. quote, crooked hillary is wheeling out one of the least productive senators in the u.s. senate. goofy elizabeth warren who lied on heritage. trump and clinton are going
5:13 pm
after each other now, they still have 133 days left until the election so joining us again to break down the presidential race are political analysts jim schultz for the republicans and mark alderman for the democrats. guys, we know all too well these two disagree on just about everything here, trump and clinton. that the includes a major topic on the world stage right now, the brexit. >> yeah, donald trump was in scotland after the united kingdom voted to leave the european union. he was there to promote his golf courses, and his comments led to more attacks from hillary clinton. let's take a listen. >> look, if the pound goes down, they are going to do more business. when the pound goes down, more people are coming to turnberry frankly. >> bombastic comments in touch length times can actually cause more turbulence and who put the interests of the american people ahead of their personal business interests. >> let's start with you. what did you think of trump's comments? >> well, denise, it was another
5:14 pm
f-minus for donald trump as the world leader. while the rest of the world, jim is was reeling from the brexit vote, trump stood in scotland and bragged about the sprinkling system on his golf course. i admit that the resort looked good on television and i guess he knows how to run a hotel, but he should stick to hotels and stop pretending that he's a serious candidate for president. >> well, if you want to talk about golf, mark there, he's no president in history that's played more golf than president obama and as hillary clinton was making her comments the other day, he happened to be on the golf course in rockville but getting back to the seriousness of what went on with brexit, the folks in england were disappointed and didn't believe that their government was governing them appropriately, and they didn't trust them, just like the american public don't trust elitist populations like hillary clinton. come november you're going to see an outpouring of support for
5:15 pm
donald trump because they don't trust hillary clinton and they want to mix it up in washington and they don't want someone who is going to be the same old same old. >> apples andon, jim. we're not the uk. >> let's move on to the next topic. donald trump has sparked his fair share of controversy, of course, but two issues have really dogged hillary clinton throughout this campaign, one being her e-mails and her handling of the benghazi attack number two so today democrats in congress released a report on benghazi that said that clinton never personally denied any requests for additional protection and she did not delay the military's response during the attack. jim, what are your thoughts on that? >> well, the democrats once again are covering the tracks for hillary clinton's failed management at the department of state, and they said that she didn't personally havefully -- have anything to do with it, but for her to now stand up and say she had nothing to do with it, she was the head of that agency, the chief executive of that agency, mark, and as the chief executive of that agency the buck stops with her.
5:16 pm
it was woefully mismanaged. the democrats admitted that and it's hillary clinton's fault. it will be a disgrace if she doesn't stand up and acknowledge it. >> jim, the republicans' favored technology is the repeat button. you play the benghazi fantasy again and again and again. secretary clinton sat for 11 hours in front of a congressional committee. she was interrogated like she's a terrorist suspect but she treated that committee with the respect that the committee did not show her. she answered every question and she acquitted herself honestly and honorably and hit pause, jim, on benghazi and let's talk about what the voters care about. >> instead of focusing on the four tragic deaths that occurred as a result of her mismanagement, the democrats went and covered her tracks, period. >> we'll let the voters judge, jim. >> let's get to the e-mail controversy. clinton could be interviewed by the fbi in the next few weeks and then just last week reports said she did not turn over
5:17 pm
another key e-mail. mark, is this going to haunt her throughout the campaign? >> well, denise, she is going to hear about her e-mails throughout this campaign. bernie sanders said that no one gave a darn about her e-mails, but donald trump does. trump has said she should be in jail. as always, he has distorted and extreme. she is not going to jail. she is not getting indicted. she is not getting arrested. those are all republican fantasies, but she is darn well going to hear about her e-mails from now until november, even though the american people don't care. >> and she darn well should, mark, because what she did was to put our national security, confidential documents in jeopardy and by doing that she may have violated the espionage act and in fact broken the law, whether she did it because she was lays, because she didn't want to carry two phones or she did it because she's paranoid or because she's just trying to,
5:18 pm
you know, cloud what the american people can see, it doesn't really matter. it shows once again she can't manage an agency. she's distrustful and she's not fit to be president. >> jim, you're a lawyer. where's the evidence? where's the evidence? you're a lawyer. there's no there there. >> well, there are plenty of credible folks that former justice department officials who would disagree with you, mark. >> i have a feeling these conversations can continue, the talk and the controversies will continue to swirl in the 133 days until this election. jim schultz and mark alderman, thanks so much for joining us, guys, that spirited conversation. >> thanks for having us on. for the latest on decision 2016 check out the nbc 10 app. a new poll shows how both candidates are less popular than congress, planned parenthood and the nra. well, we continue to see this band of showers headed towards philadelphia area.
5:19 pm
it also continues to weaken as expected. you can see the strongest part of it that went through allentown, that was a solid area of yellow and orange and heavy rain. it is just totally broken up, and so you've got little pieces that are headed towards warrington and eventually into princeton, but not nearly as heavy as it was. look at this other area of the supposedly heavy rain. it's just breaking up in chester county and that means less and less will be coming into newcastle county as the system gets closer. but, as it went through lehigh valley, really knocked the temperature down. it was well into the 80s and now it's down to 72 and in cookstown. reading 73 and it was 83 an hour ago and hopewell is 79. bethlehem 74 and easton 75 and they were in the mid-80s as well, so you can see the impact of that heavier rain, but it's
5:20 pm
not going to be as he have as it continues moving south and east. this is the future cast. look what happens as we go through the next several hours. it just continues to break up, and so not everybody is going to be seeing any rain. you've got to take the umbrellas just in case you can see that there is something on radar now, but not a whole lot as we go through the evening. now tomorrow it's a different story. the moisture is going to be increasing, and the showers and thunderstorms will be more widespread. maybe even in the morning. you can see tomorrow afternoon we've got showers, maybe thunderstorms scattered around the area. the red indicating some of that heavier rain so at the same time tomorrow as allentown and reading got hit today, you could be getting hit tomorrow, but it's likely to be heavier. may have a greater chance of having lightning and thunder with it. there's 8:00 tomorrow night. that's a pretty impressive line
5:21 pm
of showers and thunderstorms moving through to philadelphia area that is not going to be happening today, and then it continues to move offshore setting us up for some pretty decent weather on wednesday and thursday. tomorrow, yeah, definitely a stormier day and not totally overcast. a little bit of sun will push temperatures into the 80s, summerton 85 and lansdale 48 and allentown 83 degrees, and some of this activity is going to be lightning and thunder. haddenfield at 84 degrees and galloway at 80 and rehoboth beach at 79. over the next five days, well, we see a big difference at the shore compared to philadelphia, but thursday is looking pretty good overall. we could see a shower or a storm on friday, and then saturday we start to see improving weather, but it's not a guarantee for saturday and sunday that it's going to be dry.
5:22 pm
right now i think the best chance of rain over the weekend would be on friday and then again on sunday but not an all-day thing and most of the models do push the moisture out of the area by the fourth of july giving us a pretty nice day then. >> all right, glenn, thank you. we'll turn to break news now in center city philadelphia. sky norse 10 is gathering around what appears to be a manhole. this is a peco site. crews are responding to it for two men who suffered an apparent electric shock. there's a 40-year-old and a 35-year-old, both men, both headed to area hospitals with burns. as soon as we know more about this story, we'll make sure we get it to you. again, this is happening again in center city at peco site, 23rd and market. two men suffering electric shock. we're working to figure out their condition. as soon as we know we'll get back to you. still ahead at 5:00, why a philadelphia police officer lost
5:23 pm
his job over 38 bucks. plus, will her olympic hopes finally come true? we'll hear from a south jersey athlete hours before the swim of her life next on "nbc 10 news at 5:00."
5:24 pm
5:25 pm

5:26 pm
and for 21-year-old kelsey worrell the road to rio is closer than ever. >> the mt. holly native needs to finish in the top two at tonight's olympic swim trials, and she will fulfill a lifelong dream of becoming an olympian. y. >> kelsey worrell. >> wow. >> in there with a new personal best. >> her team is 56.84 and last night's olympic preliminary heats. it's the second fastest time by an american ever. now when we caught up with her last month, the seniors doing water aerobics at the mt. laurel ymca did not notice that one of america's best swimmers was in their midst and now she is on the verge of an olympic berth. we're profiling worrell for an upcoming special that profiles area athletes called "going for gold." and she told us what kind of an impact being an olympian would have for her. >> i don't know if it's just being there or i think it's the fact that i looked up to so many olympians, and there's something
5:27 pm
like about be about being one of them. that's really special. >> our own jacqueline london will be following her journey and will have more as the olympic games get under way in august. >> jacuzzi putting together awesome stories. first things first. kelsey needs to finish in the top two of the 100-meter butterfly tonight to ensure her olympic spot. you can see her and the other olympic hopefuls tonight on nbc 10. the u.s. olympic swimming trials begin at 8:00 p.m. followed by "american ninja warrior" at 9:00. this was the episode filmed in philadelphia and after, that of course, join us for "nbc 10 news at 11:00." good luck, kelsey. fourth is july is right around the corner, and if you're headed to the shore you'll need to act fast. we'll explain coming up at 5:00. >> plus, two landmark desixes by the u.s. supreme court will hit close to home for millions of women. how the justices ruling will impact abortion rights and
5:28 pm
victims of domestic violence.
5:29 pm
5:30 pm
there was celebration and disappointment outside the supreme court. today the justices issued a strong defense of abortion rights, and that was just one ruling that will affect millions of women around the country. >> no question.
5:31 pm
nbc 10's cidney long joins us with the impact and she joins us now with that. >> reporter: that other ruling will uphold laws that keep guns out of the hands of domestic violence abusers even though it's a misdemeanor crime and in new jersey 70% of the domestic violence cases do involve the lighter misdemeanor offenders. >> and we're told approved, denied or pending, period. >> period. >> today's supreme court ruling on keeping guns out of the hands of misdemeanor domestic abusers doesn't change much more gun stores like bob's little sports shot in glassboro. >> of course, we don't want any domestic violence people to have access to anything that can hurt anyone ed. >> but the u.n. held decision will help fall through municipal or cracks on the national database. >> it does happen. we've had some people that went
5:32 pm
through a nasty divorce 10 or 15 years ago and a restraining order was put against the person but was never listed. >> they have lost their chance and they have already committed a crime and already hurt someone. >> reporter: this grandmother and mom agree that the domestic violence and abortion rules are both victories for women. >> and i just feel like taking that option away from someone is taking away their freedom and that's what we stand for. >> reporter: delaware law professor john culane says the supreme court ruling will send a strong message to other states to, quote, stay on the sidelines and not try to pass radical laws and he noted one of the judges cited the case of the abortion doctor kermit gosnell but even that case didn't sway what he believed was a smokescreen to ban abortions. late this afternoon one
5:33 pm
pennsylvania senator applauded the supreme court's decision on abortion saying there was a portion of the law in texas similar to pennsylvania's and it was forcing clinics to close. he does plan to rewrite that legislation and be able to expand reproductive health services for women so that the law is complaint with the u.s. constitution. we're live in gloucester township, cydney long, nbc 10 news. >> this was the last day of the supreme court's term and the justices face several controversial issues. on gull control the court decided it would not hear a challenge to connecticut's assault weapons ban. that means the law will stay in place. now the court also upheld the affirmative action program at the university of texas. but on immigration, the justices ended in a tie vote. that will stop the white house's plan to protect millions of immigrants from deportation. let's turn now to your first alert weather. nbc 10 is tracking rain. look at all that green there. we've been watching the first alert radar as the showers move in from the north and also the
5:34 pm
west. >> and that rain could stick around through the morning. let's get an update on your neighborhood forecast from chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz. glenn? >> the rain is on the doorstep in philadelphia and it has weakened generally south of the lehigh valley, and as you can see here for the philadelphia down to wilmington area it really has just about fallen apart. there's not much left to get to wilmington and up to philadelphia. it should get at least some light rain out of this, but south of wilmington there's even less of a chance of getting anything signature out of it. did have signature rain in the lehigh valley and allentown and even this area has weakened quite a bit within the last hour or so. allentown just about out of the significant rain, but we're getting it into bucks county right now, and it's a fairly seddy rain but not nearly as
5:35 pm
heavy as it was when it came through the allentown area and the future cast as we go through the next couple of hours really shows it continuing to weaken and so there may not be a whole lot left by the time it gets to southern delaware and south jersey, but there's more rain on the way as we head into tomorrow. temperature really got knocked down in the lehigh valley. 73 degrees where it was at least ten degrees warmer before the rain hit. 85 in philadelphia because the rain hasn't reached there yet but as, of course, the rain does come in it will knock the temperature down a bit. we'll be talking more about the next threats of rain, especially tomorrow and if that's going to go into the holiday weekend in a few minutes. right now at 5:30, a worker at a car wash is killed when he's hit by two weeks. sky force 10 was over the krewsin klean car wash just before noon. the 22-year-old worker was
5:36 pm
drying the windows on an suv when the vehicle somehow struck him and the car leaving the car wash struck him again. a philadelphia police officer is under arrest charged with stealing money from a contractor. officer michael winkler was arrested by bristol township police in bucks county. investigators say winkler hired two contractors to do work at one of his properties and lure them there on may 5 by promising them additional money but instead winkler demanded one of them give him all the money in his pockets and winkler took about 38 bucks. he's been suspended from the force with the intend to dismiss. depending on what day you're out on the vine street expressway it can be a night wear. connects to the i-95 to the schuylkill expressway and it's created a negative effect for flaunds around it. the city will help re-establish a connection and they will work with design experts and penndot to possibly redesign that road.
5:37 pm
meanwhile in harrisburg, pennsylvania house republicans have put together their own state budgets. it would partially paid for by higher taxes on tobacco products. the $31.5 billion proposal also includes revenue from legislation that allows online casino style gambling in the state. it's not clear if governor tom wolf, top democrats or senate republicans will support the plan. the new fiscal year begins midnight thursday. that's just three days and six hours away. applications are available right now for atlantic city's summer youth employment program. there are 60 spots available. students can pick them between now and friday. they are available -- they are available at the city's health and human services office in city hall. now students must be between the ages of 14 and 17th and be a resident of atlantic city to qualify. they will be selected through a lottery system. and decision 2016, hillary clinton's campaign will open a
