7:07 am
mr. sessions has used the awesome power of his office to chill the free exercise of the vote by black citizens in the district he now seeks to serve as a federal judge. >> reporter: but in an extraordinarily rare move senate majority leader mitch mcconnell leading a party line rebuke. >> i call the north to order under rule 19. >> reporter: arcane rule preventing senators from maligning colleagues on the senate floor voting to silence warren. >> it's heard. the senator will take her seat. >> reporter: the #letlizspeak trending overnight. instead, warren reading her speech live on facebook. >> senator mitch mcconnell and the republicans came to the floor to shut me down for reading -- >> reporter: so far 6 of 21 cabinet nominees have been confirmed. the latest betsy devos for education secretary but it took
7:08 am
the vice president called in to cast that tiebreaking vote. george. >> okay, mary, thanks very much. let's get more from our senior white house correspondent cecilia vega. and any word from the white house on what happened to senator warren last night? we know the president is irtayed by how slow his nominees are getting confirmed. >> reporter: he certainly is irritated, george. no word on what happenedover night with elizabeth warren but take a look at what the president did tweet out about the cabinet. he said it is a disgrace that my full cabinet is still not in place. the longest such delay in the history of our country. here's the problem, though, george, that is not true. president obama's full cabinet was not in place at this point either. what is true is that president trump has more unconfirmed cabinet posts at this point than all other previous presidents combined. >> much more stark false claims from the president, this time about crime with the meeting with sheriffs. >> the murder rate is the
7:09 am
right? did you know that? because the press doesn't tell it like it is. >> the press doesn't say it because it's not true. >> reporter: that's not true either, george. we pulled crime stats from the fbi. you can see right there the murder rate hit a high decades ago. it is nowhere near the highest at this point. kellyanne conway, the chief counselor to the president, was pressed on this yesterday. she said she would talk to him about these numbers, that she didn't know where and who gave him these numbers. but, george, as you know, this is not the first time the president has made this claim and talked about this murder rate he says is the highest on the campaign trail also. >> okay, cecilia vega, thanks very much. george, president trump also facing a legal showdown over his travel ban. lawyers for the justice department and opponents to the ban facing off last night in a federal court hearing. abc's chief white house correspondent jon karl has the latest on that for us. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, robin. a decision on whether to reinstate the president's travel ban immediately could come as soon as today. but the legal battle over whether or not the ban
7:10 am
the constitution has just begun. the fate of president trump's travel ban is now up to the courts. a legal battle the president acknowledged could go all the way to the supreme court. >> we'll see. hopefully it doesn't have to. it's common sense. you know, some things are law and i'm all in favor of that. some things are common sense. this is common sense. >> reporter: overnight the trump legal team challenged the district judge who put the travel ban on hold. insisting there's no evidence the president's executive order violates the constitution. >> it is extraordinary for a court to enjoin the president's national security determination based on some newspaper articles and that's what has happened here. >> reporter: the lawyer for washington state which had challenged the ban argued the president's action was not only unconstitutional, but damaging. >> what's the irrepresent recall harm to the state? >> we had students and faculty at our state universities who were stranded overseas. >> reporter: the white house says the president will accept th
7:11 am
>> there's no question the president expects the executive branch. >> reporter: days ago the president attacked the federal judge who put it on hold calling him a so-called judge and tweeting just cannot believe a judge would put our country in such peril. if something happen, blame him and the court system. on tuesday, homeland security secretary john kelly echoed the president's warning that pausing the ban puts american lives in danger. >> it's entirely possible that someone that's coming in, whether it's during this stage or in the court action or previous to this period, will do us harm. >> you don't have any proof at this point? >> not until the boom. >> not until what. >> not until they act and blow something up or go into a mall and kill people. so we won't know until then. >> reporter: at last night's hearing the judges appeared skeptical of the white house's argument. in fact, george, at one point the white house's lawyer
7:12 am
quote, i'm not sure i'm convincing the court. he told that to the judges. >> yeah, that was something. jon karl, thanks so much. let's talk to dan abrams about that. you always have to be careful about reaching conclusions from the questions but that was a pretty stunning concession. >> it was and it's true that you can't tell what they're going to do because they were tough on both sides, right? they intentionally asked provocative questions on both sides but those of us who watch these things still read the tea leaves sometimes incorrectly an i think what we saw from this is i think it is unlikely that they are going to overturn the temporary restraining order, meaning -- >> only thing at issue. >> correct. as a practical matter most people believe that the current halt on it which is just temporary will continue to stay in existence. >> but then you get to the underlying question on the overall executive order and there were a lot of questions from the lawyers about and from the judges about whether or not there was discriminatory intent, whether the intent of the order was to discriminate against muslims.
7:13 am
tougher on the washington solicitor general there, because there the judges seem much more skeptical of the argument that this was a muslim ban and they were asking some very hard questions about that. the problem for the administration is that's not the only argument against the law. so even if you say, let's write off the muslim ban argument, there's still a number of statutory arguments, constitutional arguments et cetera. >> i want to get to that. the president weighed in and said if the u.s. does not win this case we can never have the security and safety to which we are entitled. added, politics but as a matter of law he has wide berth in national security. >> very wide berth in immigration law in particular. when it comes to immigration and national security, the president does have wide latitude and in the end probably will be able to enact some sort of executive order very close to what he's got here. the question is just the details which is going to become criticalnd
7:14 am
going to be also how much compromise are they willing to do. >> dan abrams, thanks very much. george, we move from politics to the mysterious death of a young american woman on vacation traveling alone in panama when she disappeared. her body found days later on a hiking trail. abc's gio benitez joins us with the latest on this. so, gio, what are officials saying this morning. >> good morning. we're learning investigators have been conducting raids in panama to figure out how this young woman lost her life. the fbi even offering to help local authorities. but right now that question how did a vacation end in death? this morning, a mystery on a tiny panamanian island. a globe-trotting 23-year-old from new york catherine johannet found dead in paradise. she was visiting an explorary dream, and it shows pristine beaches and posting on instagram from one a week ago. when she didn't return from a solo day trip to a nearby island thursday, she was reporte
7:15 am
missing. after three days of searching a police officer found her body along a hiking trail. her family seen here arriving from the u.s. monday to identify her body. >> i'm going to guess based on the reaction of the panamanians that this probably is -- there's some wrongdoing going on here someplace in this case and it may well be a murder. >> reporter: now investigators are racing to determine whether there was foul play. authorities awaiting autopsy results before declaring this a criminal investigation. the fbi now standing by to help with a possible investigation. >> is there anything at the scene where she was found that would help identify a potential suspect, and then obviously were there any witnesses in proximity? >> reporter: now johannet's sister writing on facebook, my family is thinking of all our beautiful memories with our laughing, adventurous, warm little girl. and this morning the state department has issued a statement saying it will continue to work closely
7:16 am
panamanian officials, no doubt we will keep following this developing story, michael. >> all right, thank you, gio. and turning now to the big super bowl celebration. take a look at the patriots in the streets of boston for the huge victory parade yesterday and this morning, there are those questions about whether tom brady will retire or not. a lot of teams are hoping he does. i'm sure. jesse palmer is here with more. hey, jesse. >> you know what it's like to be in a big super bowl parade celebrating but it's what the mvp revealed about his future that really has patriots fans cheering. he's got enough super bowl rings to fill an entire hand. >> i forgot this one. it's kind of new. >> reporter: this morning brady says his lady has told him it's time to call it quits. >> if it was up to my wife she would have me retire today. she told me that last night three times. >> reporter: relax, patriots nation. number 12 says he'll be back next year. >> i said, too bad, babe, i'm having too much fun right
7:17 am
die-hards braving the rain and snow to celebrate. >> that's number five. >> reporter: that come from behind super bowl win. >> no days off. no days off. >> reporter: at the victory parade, the players riding duck boats through the streets. rob gronkowski may have missed the playoffs but he stole the show. >> hey, boston. who's getting wild tonight? that's what i'm talking about, baby. >> reporter: catching a beer from the crowd and chugging it. whipping off his shirt and gronking it up with super bowl stars james white and legarrette blount. >> yeah. >> reporter: tom brady instagramming this video of his son benny dabbing on the boat with his papa. die-hard fans noticing his boat decorated with this subtle nod to roger goodell.
7:18 am
a t-shirt with a picture of five rings and the word, roger that. and while tom brady partied in boston, houston police putting up their top investigators on the search for that missing game jersey that nobody can seem to find, guys. >> a lot of people like -- i don't know where it is. that's all i'm saying. you know, something else that warmed my heart. check out this picture of my friend howie long's son, defensive end chris long who spent eight long seasons in st. louis. he's soaking it up and took a ride on top of one of the floats after -- he averaged four games a year and goes there for the first year and wins asob so he and his daddy have won a super bowl each. what a great hug after the game for those two. >> deserves to celebrate like that. how about out west there, ginger. >> the bay area has their own weather headline. you have to see this out of san rafael just north of the bay area. up to 5 inches of rain. people canoeing through their neighborhoods. more flood warnings in place today. your local weather in 30

7:39 am
bottom of the stairs in this campus fraternity house. just before 11:00 a.m. friday ems responding to a 911 call from beta theta pi. they find 19-year-old timothy piazza unconscious, injured but alive. rushing him to the hospital where he dies a day later. fraternity members tell police the sophomore fell down the basement steps around 11:00 p.m. during 12 hours earlier during a party. an autopsy revealing he had multiple traumatic injuries that the coroner believes were caused by the fall, noting he had alcohol in his system. while the coroner believes the death was accidental, what's not clear is why no one called for help until the following morning. >> fraternity members are cooperating and we're in the process of obtaining video from inside the fraternity and we are working closely with pennsylvania office of student affairs. >> reporter: this morning, piazza's family is remembering the engineering major and
7:40 am
his brother mike writing on facebook, his sole mission in life was to make other people smile. this latest death at penn state eerily similar to another in 2009, 18-year-old joe dotto, found dead at the bottom of a campus stairwell of a night of drinking. his death was ruled accidental. and the university temporarily suspending beta as they investigate. the fraternity says they're hopeful that security cameras inside the house will shed some light on exactly what happened. robin. >> oh, yes, eva, thank you. joining us now is sunny hostin. tough to talk about a story like this. your heart goes out to that family of the young man. under what circumstances could the fraternity members be held responsible in some way for the delay in contacting authorities? >> well, i think we don't know enough because perhaps it's been ruled an dent and perhaps they didn't see him at the bottom of the stairs for 12 hours and when they saw him they called.
7:41 am
case, robin is that this is not a one-off. we had this happen in 2009 at the same university and i did some research last night. and do you know that since 2005, on college campuses, 60 kids have died under similar circumstances. here's a graphic. it shows that, you know, you talk about hazing and you think these are hazing related deaths. that is a small percentage. 60 kids have died in this way and so is the fraternity liable? very, very possible. there was underage drinking going on and certainly if the fraternity gave this kid alcohol knowingly that he was a minor there's a problem there, as well but what was shocking to me is that this is not that unusual. >> because when you hear frat house you automatically think hazing which does not appear to be the case here. >> exactly. >> but when we're talking about all these various case, schools all across the country, where do college officials -- what role do they play. >> do
7:42 am
a duty to protect these kids and the courts have sort of been all over the place, but the bottom line is i think so. i think colleges are going to be held responsible. >> important conversation to have. we'll check you out on "the view" today. >> i'll be there. >> michael. >> thank you, robin. coming up on our big board, will these supersize crash test dummies make us safety? david kerley is here to let us know with a live demonstration. plus, could you already have hearing loss and not even know it? dr. besser is here. we'll talk about that when we come back in two minutes.

7:45 am
how to put it. >> that's a nice way to put it. >> david kerley is here with us. he's at the test site actually right now and one of the test dummies is 100 pounds heavier than the previous design and i think we pretty much know why, david. >> reporter: yeah, you actually probably do, robin fshlth because we've been changing -- these are the dummies we've used for 50 years now. you see them in cars being crashed all the time. here's the workhorse. this is the 50 percentile dummy. 50% of men were like this about 50 years ago back in 1970 but we have put on some weight. look 59 these numbers. in the last 50 years the average man has put on 21 pounds. the average woman has added 20 pounds so this company is working on an obese dummy which russ go going to get set up for this test there working with the university of michigan on elderly dummies too because of the aging population and driving and that's a real problem so
7:46 am
russ, let's pull up the pendulum and test this. the idea is these dummies will be in the cars that you see crash by all the crash test folks including carmakers as well and let this -- go ahead and come on up to give you a sense of whether or not this dummy can withstand what we're about ready to throw at him. >> don't get in front of that. get away. also, david, i read where, you know, if you're a little larger because of the seat belts you slide under the seat belts because of the weight that people have added over the years. >> reporter: right. i'm going to show you that in just a second, michael. but as this pendulum gets up to the top here, what we want to talk about is whether or not this dummy is ready to go into a car. so what the company is doing is trying to certify this dummy, does he provide the kind of data and information you need to get by. here we go, three, two, one, go.
7:47 am
>> oh. >> so does the obese dummy have a name, russ? >> it does not? we don't have a name for him but he got pushed back significantly. let's show you in slow motion what that looks like, what an impact would be like in a vehicle. here's the slow motion version of what just happened to an obese dummy here. >> you can learn so much through that. >> now, right, michael mentioned submarining. a real problem because the weight has come down in obese and elderly folks, the pelvis area has more weight and now take a look at this vehicle. this is what happens when somebody in a crash and goes underneath the restraints, that's called submarining. they're hoping these dummies, the elderly and obese may help us fix that in the long run. >> thank your friend there. that was a very dramatic way of letting us know what could possibly happen. wow. thank you. i know you approve of that, dr. besser. >> yeah. >> these new guices. >> so
7:48 am
very few are so important to know for planes, buses, not just cars. >> just added the weight to the dummies now. i'm glad that they did. both are. and next up, you might think you have good or excellent hearing. but a troubling new report finds that one in four american adults who assume they're okay actually suffer from hearing loss and dr. besser, that's what you're here to talk about. you're the former head of the cdc. what does this tell us. >> it tells us noise-induced hearing loss is very common. 40 million adults under the age of 70 have problems with their hearing because of noise. and half of them don't have noisy jobs so they're getting it from everything they're doing throughout their life. >> i know you would think because you being in football stadiums and always around the noise, it's noise and i found through my chemotherapy -- through my treatment it led to
7:49 am
i'm surprised by that. >> 40 million doesn't even include people who have hearing loss from other reasons. >> you got a device here. >> so, this is a decibel meter and what this does is measures the loudness of sounds around us and what you need to worry about is any level that's above 85. the longer you're exposed to that the more there is as a risk so we took this out and about to see what kind of noises people are exposed to. this first one here, this is at a basketball game. and at this basketball game they're getting a level above 90. at that level two hours at that level can cause hearing damage. >> wow. >> you were in stadiums for hours and hours exposed to -- >> some stadiums you can't hear yourself think. >> this next one is a blender. people have that in their homes. this hit levels in the 100s. 14 minutes at that level, that can cause damage and our last one is our audience. take a look upstairs. when they go wild and excited about what's going on there, we hit 110. at 110 two minutes at that level
7:50 am
very dangerous. >> what i was disappointed about, not just losing my hearing but you can't get it back. you can -- there are things that can be done to slow it down but you can't recoup. >> once those cells are dead there's nothing you can do. you want to wear hearing protection but other things, never turn up your music to drown out noises around you. that is one way you can damage your hearing. >> if you're a parent, watch your kids. i can hear music coming out of the headphones. we don't want to deter our audience from being loud. >> short and sweet is there thanks so much. coming up take a look at this mudslide out west. splitting a home in two. now another storm is in the forecast. ginger will have the latest on that next. >> wow. i was energetic. then the chronic, widespread pain drained my energy. my doctor said moving more helps ease fibromyalgia pain. he also prescribed lyrica. fibromyalgia is thought to be
