7:09 am
a newly released batch of messages that focuses on ties between the clinton foundation when she was secretary of state. how is the clinton campaign responding to that today? >> the clinton campaign has always denied any foundation donors received any special treatment, because she was secretary of state. but, now, this batch of new e-mails obtained by judicial watch includes a few e-mails exchanged between huma abedin and doug band who led t clinton's foundation global initiatives. in one with exchange, abedin requested a favor for someone who seemed to be looking for a job. in another, band asked abedin to connect a liberty knees billionaire who is one of the top donors of the foundation with someone in lebanon. abedin said she would give him a call. the clinton campaign says she's
7:10 am
secretary clinton herself or the foundation's work and they say band was operating in his capacity as an aide to former president clinton and not as a foundation official. >> thanks, nancy. dan senor was a senior adviser to the romney campaign in 2012. >> good to be with you. >> first, a controversy with the second amendment and donald trump. do you take him at his word he was simply talking about political power? >> no. i've watched it probably 20 times. the best you can say, if you really want to give him the benefit of the doubt, is he was joking about a subject that you shouldn't be joking about. which is about inciting violence, particularly insetting violence particularly someone under secret service protection and particularly for secret service putting out a statement saying they are aware of his comments. >> do you believe his words should lead you to say he was inciting violence? >> well it had the effect of inciting violence and i'm not sure his intention but the
7:11 am
he has a pattern. i drew up a list last night. you look what ed about megyn kelly and judge curiel and encouraging russians to hack and get hillary clinton's e-mails and the wisconsin primary what he said about abortions and about the physically disabled reporter from "the new york times," what ed, after each one of these incidents, i didn't mean that. give me the benefit of the doubt and it was taken out of context and it's misinterpreted. if you have a pattern where you constantly sayng highly divisive and inflammatory and provocative so much so you have to clean it up one would think you would be more cautious with your words. when you're talking about the second amendment and something that could elude to violence against a high profile political figure under secret service protection, you choose your words carefully. he did not do that which is just another example, for me and other leaders within the republican party, that he is extremely reckless. >> let's talk about the leaders
7:12 am
night, as you know, a very big win in washington he called it a bad joke gone bad. do you think the leadership is worried in the republican party? because when you talk to the trump campaign, they sort of have a "mad" magazine out, me worry? do you think the leadership is worried? >> the leadership of the party is actually worried. the real clear average poll, the sort of average of polls has hillary clinton nationally by 7.5 points. to put that in context, that is twice as high as barack obama was at this point against john mccain in 2008 and mitt romney in 2012. that is nationally. she is even ahead in states that republicans have won in previous presidential elections. she is competitive in georgia and north carolina and arizona. if she wins those states and wins florida and ohio,dana. shd
7:13 am
college tally by some 40 electorate college votes. this could be a trounce. >> we still got time, though, dan. >> you could say that is an outlier and it won't affect the races. i'm dubious. if hillary clinton gets, you know, 350 to 400 electorate college votes, it means the senate is highly unlikely to keep senate majority hands and i think it poseses a real threat to the house majority. >> do the release of the e-mails threaten her? this is the thing many people say there may be in terms of foundation and act of connection at the state department? >> what is amazing to me there is so much material to mind, vis-a-vis hillary clinton. these e-mails, again, are so damaging. it's no wonder that her untrust worthy numbers and unfavorable numbers are so high. in any other election with any other republican running with someone with this story and these numbers, they would be trouncing her. because the republicans nominated donald trump, she is
7:14 am
>> once again, his headline sort of lead the show instead of what is going on with her. >> right. >> dan, appreciate it. >> a woman in florida was shot and killed by a police officer in a class about police procedures. the chief called the death of 73-year-old mary knowlton a horrible accident and it happened in >> here's 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. he shot her. he should have been using blank rounds, but instead he had live
7:15 am
it happened at the punta goreda public safety complex. mary nolton was among the 35 people taking part in the eight-week police academy. >> two participants were randomly selected to be put through a shoot-don't shoot scenario. they were using decisions on making simulated lethal force in live role play. during the first scenario in a horrible accident participant mary struck with a live round. >> the elderly victim was transported to a local hospital. there was a statement made to cbs news saying my mom was a saint. 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 our city leaders are devastated for everyone involved in this unimaginable event. >> reporter: nolton was
7:16 am
photographer that was covering the event for the charlotte sun. nolton 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 is why was a real gun being used in a fake situation? gale, i have to tell you in speaking with the police spokesman this morning, she really small community, and the lady who died here was known to everybody, including the police department who knew her personally. they say even for the law enforcement, it's a personal devastating loss. >> i'll say. her son describes her as a saint, but you raise a really good question? what was a live gun doing there? thank you, david. thousands of delta airline passengers face a third day of delays and cancellations after the carrier's computerer meltdown. the airline is still scrambling
