7:02 am
and the patriots. what a match-up. >> tom brady obviously making a lot of headlines with his touchdown on the field but look at this jacket. take a look at this jacket that he was wearing on the sidelines. >> what is that? >> it keeps you nice and toasty and warm, george. you know, he looks like a marshmallow on the bench but once he takes it off he is superman. >> big victory for such a young man. >> in football terms he's an old man. >> i know that. we got a lot coming up. what a weekend in washington, d.c. take a look at the scene there saturday. hundreds of thousands coming out for those marches, those protest marches, at the same time the white house press briefing room, the site of some confrontation. the press secretary called out for going to the room and making false statements about the inauguration. did not take questions then. he will for the first time today likely to be a confrontation and the president has a packed day ahead as well and week. he'll sign executive orders in the oval this morning, meet with house speaker
7:03 am
and head to philadelphia for a gop retreat on thursday and british prime minister theresa may will visit the white house on friday. abc's cecilia vega at the white house. no surprise, the president also taking to twitter this morning. >> reporter: what a way to start the week. why not start on twitter. that's what he just did. he just tweeted from his account busy week planned with the heavy focus on jobs and national security. now if he makes good on his campaign promises he will sign some executive orders that will begin to roll back some policies of president barack obama on everything from trade to immigration. this morning, president trump potentially headed for a new legal battle. a liberal watchdog group planning to sue the president alleging he is violating the constitution by allowing his businesses like his new hotel in washington, d.c. to accept payments from foreign governments. over the weekend the president swearing in his senior staff from omarosa to jared kushner but the
7:04 am
a fight over facts. no questions allowed during press secretary sean spicer's first white house briefing. instead, he ripped into reporters for coverage of the inauguration crowd size. >> this was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period. both in person and around the globe. >> reporter: the problem is, that's not true. there's no official crowd count but there are photos. on the left, president obama 2009 inauguration, on the right, president trump's. the images taken at the exact same location two minutes apart. spicer also claimed there were more d.c. metro riders for president trump's inauguration than president obama's but transit officials say there were actually more than 200,000 fewer riders friday than the 2013 swearing in. when pressed counselor to the president kellyanne conway said spicer offered, quote, alternative facts. >> he had hundreds of thousands of people here. there's no question. i mean i was
7:05 am
where the president was. we saw crowds as far as the eye can see. >> reporter: now some crowd experts telling "the new york times" there may have been as many as three types more people at the women's march in washington than at trump's inauguration. it was that speech by the president himself at the cia that launched the debate. >> it went all the way back to the washington monument and we caught them in a beauty. i think they'll pay a big price. >> reporter: "snl" pouncing. >> if you're going live don't make it so obvious. see you have friends with lebron, not that you are lebron james. >> reporter: that visit by president trump to the cia took -- it took place in front of the agency's memorial wall to fallen heroes and the president spent much of his time bashing the media and rehashing his election win. that did not sit well with the former cia director who through aides said it was a despicable display of self-aggrandizement. >> kellyanne conway told me she thought brennan acted
7:06 am
partisan political hack. you'll see a real confrontation today around 1:30. >> reporter: after what many say was a bizarre display by press secretary sean spicer. he'll have his first on camera briefing starting today, monday, where this time he is expected to take questions, george, and you can imagine he'll get a lot of them. >> no question about it. one of them likely to come from jon karl in the white house briefing room right now and, jon, we've talked about this before. you covered ten presidents, ten white house press seconds. what we're dealing with in that briefing room is unlike anything we've ever seen before. >> reporter: yeah, never anything remotely like that especially on the first appearance in the briefing room of a new white house press secretary to come in and deliver a tongue lashing at the press and state some things that simply were not true and not take questions. i expect we'll see a reset here. sean spicer is somebody who is considered, you know, a pro, somebody who has long relationships, long-time relationships with
7:07 am
to talk about. president trump has a packed schedule. he's meeting with business leaders, labor leaders, congressional leaders. he is signing executive orders. we're not even sure which ones today. there are a lot of unanswered questions, questions far beyond the size of the crowd at the inauguration. >> you're right. there is a lot happening. that's why we have martha raddatz here, as well. two key cabinet nominees are up for votes today. cia director and secretary of state, will they be confirmed and will that help settle things down if they are. >> i think you'll see a confirmation of rex tillerson for state and mike pompeo for cia and i do think that will calm things down especially at the cia. that appearance by donald trump didn't go over well with some people. it was fine with others. i think they know he has a learning curve. he's their number one customer. they want to please their number one customer and i think many were happy he appeared at the cia. it didn't go as planned. they thought it was a little
7:08 am
they thought -- they didn't like him in front of the wall talking about the media and crowd size but i think having a cia director confirmed will calm things down. it has to and one former cia director told me, look, going forward, we'll have a reset. >> going forward. >> first full week in office, first major lawsuit filed against the president. dan abrams here to talk about that. this is being filed by these ethics experts this, mo. what are its chances. >> this particular lawsuit probably not great and the reason for that is what's called standing. they're suing under the emoluments clause. not conflicts of interest. it's important to separate out from the conflict of interest laws that a lot of people talk about that's not what this is about. this is about the u.s. constitution, basically saying in effect if trump is able to gain something from foreign leaders staying at his hotels or doing deals with his golf course, et cetera, that that's a violation of the constitution. what t
7:09 am
returns. that's what they're hoping to get is part of this process. the problem is, that in order to file a lawsuit you have to be able to show i'm the right person to file it. well, it's calling standing. i suffered as a result of this. and this organization's argument there is a tough one but expect to see additional lawsuits throughout this administration. >> the reason once it goes to discovery they want to get the tax returns perhaps to find out if there are other sources of foreign funding into the president's businesses. >> exactly. to determine this question on the emoluments clause and so even if this lawsuit doesn't move forward, they're going to be other ones. this he'll be a hotel person who works next door to trump's hotel an something where tell say we do have standing and as a result we should be able to sue. >> kellyanne made it clear they do not -- >> they're not going do it. >> this may be a way to see those. back to saturday, jon karl, and getting the white house's reaction to what we saw not only
7:10 am
world. the massive amount of people, men and women, who came out for the women's march. what has been the white house reaction? >> reporter: well, a tremendous event and as you mentioned a global event and also cities all across the united states. the white house reaction, you can really see two different sides of it in as you can imagine two tweets from donald trump. first, yesterday morning he said, watched protests yesterday but was under the impression that we just had an election. why didn't niece people vote? celebs hurt cause badly but then somewhat of an olive branch a couple of hours later from donald trump when he tweeted, peaceful protests are the hallmark of our democracy. even if i don't always agree i recognize the right of people to express their views. robin, i get the sense that the white house knows that they need to reach out to those that did not support donald trump but you're going to see a little bit of yin and yang. >> a real pattern with the president's tweets. two very distinct kinds of
7:11 am
some that seem to be a little more personal and visceral, some to be more strategic. >> and a little time to think about it and come back with a second one. all right, thank you all. to michael. >> thank you, robin. now to dangerous storms stretching across the southeast, dozens of tornadoes, heavy rain and hail leaving a path of destruction and gio benitez is in hard hit albany, georgia, with the latest on that. good morning, gio. >> reporter: michael, good morning to you. truly devastating here. i want to show you this. this is a gas station and that's a gas pump completely ripped out of the ground mangled metal just hanging there. i want you to walk with me to what was the convenience store here in albany. we can tell you that at least four people were killed just in this area alone. crews are out there right now searching for survivors. take a look. you can see the twisted metal here. the destruction in this area simply surreal. >> dude, i think that's a tornado. >> reporter: overnight thousands taking cover as this deadly tornado
7:12 am
georgia at 70 miles per hour. >> i got to move. >> yeah, get us out of here. >> reporter: the storm slicing everything in its path from trees to brick walls, take a look at this mobile home park in adel, georgia, flattened to the ground. residents say all this damage happened in a matter of minutes. >> we covered each other and we just laid there and we prayed. lord, please let it pass over, let it pass over. >> reporter: at least 16 people killed over the weekend. more than 40 injured. jenny bullard injured her arm but she says she's lucky to be alive. >> the whole fall fell in on me. i crawled out from under it and then our back door came by and hit me and knocked me down this. >> reporter: this morning search and rescue operations still under way. >> it looks like a nuclear bomb went off. >> reporter: georgia's governor declaring a state of emergency in seven counties. >> we do have crews out there clearing the roadways, but the neighborhoods are damaged so severely that it's going to take a while. >> reporter: the s
7:13 am
the weekend. in this drone video of hattiesburg, you can see the path of destruction residents now have to clean up. and back out here live in albany, i want to show you our other camera. that is a live look at a massive tractor trailer just a block from here completely on its side. it just shows you how strong this was and i got to tell you i met with a resident yesterday who said his whole family survived but he opened up his door and looked outside and he saw his entire neighborhood just gone. robin. >> those images hurt your heart. we're thinking about everyone in the storm's path. a major storm moving into the northeast bringing wind, rain and snow and rob marciano is on the jersey shore with much more on that. good morning, rob. >> good morning, robin. this is the same storm that brought tornadoes to the south and east and ear the winds and waves are picking up. low tide now but when the tide comes in later and the front comes in there will be coastal

7:17 am

new year, time to get rid of stuff. simplify, declutter, unplug, purge, or even quit cold turkey. i raise turkeys without growth-promoting antibiotics, hormones, or steroids. if you're looking for little ways to simplify life, feeling good about what your family eats is a pretty simple place to start. my name is tammy plumlee, and i raise honest, simple turkey for shady brook farms. we are back with newly released video that shows an ohio divorce lawyer hypnotizing and molesting a female client now behind bars. mara schiavocampo has the story. good morning. >> reporter: george, good morning. that secretly recorded video showing an unbelievable crime in action. that woman, one of six who have since stepped forward and now we're hearing from another one of this man's hypnosis victims.
7:37 am
of an ohio divorce attorney hypnotizing a female client. >> two, three, sleep. >> reporter: so he could take advantage of her. >> one, two, three. >> reporter: watch as 59-year-old michael fine puts the woman into a trance without her knowledge or consent. saying it's just a breathing exercise. >> let's take a deep breath. >> reporter: but fine uses his hypnosis to make the woman walk over to the douche where he initiates a sexual encounter. >> your entire body is a vessel of pleasure. >> reporter: before awakening her and acting like nothing ever happened. >> okay, so we have some papers to go over. >> reporter: that's when police bust in and nab him. >> police officers. step over here. >> yes, sir. >> reporter: the video part of a 2014 sting operation. the woman alerting authorities after noticing her clothing would be dis

appointments. >> the basic law of hypnosis is that you cannot make people do what they don't want to do. however, we canffect the things that you want that you desire. >> reporter: she wasn't the only one. >> he ruined a lot of people's lives. >> reporter: melissa who doesn't want to reveal her last name said she too was hypnotized and molested by fine. >> he liked to hold your hand. he's right there with you and will protect you and he was the one that was the predator. >> reporter: now fine is serving 12 years in prison for hypnotizing six female clients after pleading guilty to five counts of kidnapping and one count of attempted kidnapping, all with a sexual motivation specification and now faces six civil lawsuits. >> she unfortunately met a very bad lawyer who took advantage of her. who was a predator. who breached her trust. >> reporter: now to add insult to injury fine was even billing these women for his services as a lawyer during
7:39 am
hypnotizing and taking advantage of them. he has since been disbarred. as for civil trials no date was set. we did reach out to fine for comment but we did not hear back. george. >> boy, the outrages pile up. thanks very much. let's bring back our legal team dan abrams along with sunny hostin. sunny, you know, when you first heard about this case it was horrifying. seeing the tape makes it so much worse. >> it's so much worse. heartbreaking because as an attorney we do know as attorneys our clients are people we protect. our clients are people that we are sworn to protect and when you see this sort of violation in the inner sanctum, dan and i were discussing this, it could be up to 25 women he did this to. only six he pled guilty to. >> he's behind bars. does he have any chance. >> no chance to win the civil suits. the question is damages. he's going to lose them but the
7:40 am
the number? is he going to defend them at all? i mean, because when you're talking about a civil lawsuit you're talking about money damages. and the questions are going to be does he come forward and use the kind of defense he might have used in a criminal case which is, well, you know, let's not blow this out of proportion as you just heard in the piece. >> can't make them do something they don't want to do. >> exactly. so, therefore, what should damages be? you know, my guess is that he's going to be able to somehow resolve these. file for bankruptcy. and pay, you know, these women a significant amount of money if he has it. >> if he has it. that's the thing. maybe these are just paper judgments. you have to enforce the judgment but the other thing that i'm thinking about is because he pled guilty what kind of defense does he have? i mean he already admitted to the behavior. >> he's going to be found responsible. the question is just going to be what is that payout. >> does he have any money. >> what are the damages. >> insurance companies don't have to pay the money?
7:41 am
malpractice angle to this because lawyers aren't supposed to do this kind of thing so if he was insured then perhaps, perhaps they'll get some sort of money. >> he has a family too and i only say that to point out he has a wife and kids and as a result he may try to fight to protect whatever assets that he has. >> that's true. >> can you bring in a new defense you didn't use before? >> sure, you can try. >> in a civil case. >> but it's going to be used against him that he's already admitted the conduct. he could then say, though, but with that said the damages should still be minimal because of x, y and z. >> these go way beyond what we saw in that -- on that tape in that room. we're talking about the intentional infliction of emotional distress. these women will have a lot of trouble trusting anyone especially someone that was supposed to be -- >> medical fees. psychologist, a lot of expenses. >> clearly you don't think it's going to be a close call. >> no. >> no, whether he's responsible, no. >> to michael.

coming up on our big board, a travel nightmare. the computer glitch that grounded united airlines flights for hours last night. plus the backlash that's growing over the movie "a dog's purpose," could this video change every movie with animals going forward? we'll talk about that when we come back in two minutes.
7:43 am
7:44 am
we are back with our big board and larry hackett is here at the table with us. welcome, larry. love having you here. we always talk about hollywood and you have those hollywood good looks. we're going to talk about something that has hollywood and a lot of people are in an uproar. a lot of outrage growing over the movie "a dog's purpose." the film premiere was canceled after tmz released this video appearing to show its canine star in distress while filming a stunt for the movie. now, warning, you know, these are disturbing images. take a look. >> we saw those. >> we just saw these. that's -- we were talking before we came here and
7:45 am
would it be hard for us to watch this film and when you see those images. >> it's hard. >> it's really hard. now peta is calling for a boycott not only of this film but in any film featuring real animals. >> right. people for ethical treatment of animals say going forward. this is the last thing the producers need. their premiere canceled and this is not good for this film at all. >> it's not and not good for the industry. there's so many that are involved in the film and when you call for a boycott and you know you're affecting a lot of people's lives but it's hard. i'm a dog lover. it would be hard to sit there and not think about what could have gone through that dog that was there. so what does it say about the industry? what do you think the impact will be. >> for the industry, i mean in a world now where you have computer generated graphics
7:46 am

8:24 am
>> snoring is the noise that your body makes when air moves through narrowed airway passages. look at this. when you're lying on your back and fall asleep the muscles relax and tissues come closer together and there's vibration, that causes the noise of snoring. >> and what have you done to help john with this? >> besides kick him. let me just say i don't want to mislead anybody. i can be disruptive with tug-of-war with the covers and getting up at ungodly hours but with john specifically he had a deviated septum so recently have a septoplasty. he's still snoring. i said i don't want to sleep in separate rooms. can you please explore whether or not you have sleep apnea and he agreed. >> there are different reason, not just ha. >> i think if someone is a big-time snorer they should be evaluated for a condition treatable. the big one is obstructive sleep apnea. air stops flowing. you're not getting
