>> reporter: flyers are in open revolt. >> it's ridiculous. >> reporter: the hashtag #ihatethewait. check out the endless lines at o'hare at 3:30 a.m. this morning. this is newark at 4:30. tucson at 5:00 in the morning. and tonight, dire predictions those lines will just get worse. this summer, expected to be the busiest ever. expectations of 231 million passengers, up from 222 million last year. that's 95,000 more passengers every day. but with 5,000 fewer screeners than three years ago. even in the middle of the afternoon, the lines seem to go on and on and on. late today, behind closed doors, members of congress being briefed by airport officials about what's going so wrong. >> we

him lunging at the cops. >> reporter: david, one of the officers suffered a minor cut in the struggle and one tourist was grazed on the wrist by a bullet. in this extremely crowded area, it could have been so much worse. david? >> thank you. we turn to the race for the white house. and the new poll, this could be a tight race all the way through november. the poll now showing donald trump leading hillary clinton by three points nationally. within the margin of error, but that's a flip from the last poll, that had clinton ahead. donald trump hopes to send a new message about foreign policy. and what his financial disclosure reveals about his wealth. here's tom llamas. >> reporter: he still won't release his tax returns, but tonight a new glimpse into the deep pockets of donald trump. >> i'm really rich. >> reporter: in new campaign financial documents, trump claiming his income last y

6:38 pm
>> many times. >> oh. okay. excuse me. >> what do you -- >> not the most horrible, you're not the most horrible, over your life, you've been called a lot worse. >> reporter: still, trump's softer side does have its limits. >> but i will say this. if i don't go all the way, and if i don't win, i will consider it to be a total and complete waste of time, energy and money. >> tom, we saw donald trump's list of possible supreme court picks. but you said, some of the judges were a surprise to see their names on the list? >> the texas judge we mentioned laughed it off. instead of commenting, judge willett said he's exercising
6:39 pm
and hillary clinton, declaring victory in kentucky overnight. though abc news is not calling it. too close. sanders winning oregon. the math is nearly impossible for him, but he's vowing to fight until the end. here's cecilia vega. >> reporter: these images of angry bernie sanders supporters, in nevada, coming to represent a nasty feud shaking up the democratic party. it got so bad, the state party chair received death threats. sanders, denouncing the violence. but after another hard-fought fight, he's vowing to
6:40 pm
but the reality is, that's nearly impossible. to take the lead among pledged delegate, he needs to win 67% of those still up for grabs. and that defiance from his supporters now has some democratic party leaders worried it's their convention that could take a violent turn. >> it worries me a great deal. i don't want to go back to the '68 convention. i worry what it could do to the electorate, and he should, too. >> reporter: and hillary clinton in the spotlight once again for the controversial speaking fees. her husband, 22 speeches for over $5 million. >> and cecilia vega

6:45 pm
real life. >> and elizabeth joins us now. the producers of the show aren't talking, but she's not the first actress to fight this fight. >> yes, turn it on the flip side. they're famous women that have been honored for being the best in their field. if they're not earning as much as their male counter parts, it raises serious questions. new developments in the national park tragedy. the shivering baby bison before tourists brought him into the car. now, they're trying to explain why. and the dramatic rescue, the firefighter that needed help

love your fiber. new mirafiber. once i left the hospital after a dvt blood clot. what about my wife... ...what we're building together... ...and could this happen again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? i spoke to my doctor and she told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots. and reduces the risk but eliquis happening again. also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... ...turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless you 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.
