7:01 am
his outraged family speaking out. the s the annual trooping the color and the queen's poignant message to the people. hey, good morning and we start here with the developing story overseas involving that u.s. navy destroyer. seven sailors missing right now after their ship collided with a tanker off the coast of japan. >> questions abound as to how this could have happened. we want to you look at this video of "uss fitzgerald" limping back into port in japan. this as u.s. and japanese ships and aircraft are frantically conducting search and rescue missions. >> five people were medevacked off the boat. we'll kick off our coverage with abc's matt gutman reporting from los angeles. matt, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, dan
7:02 am
incident this was. the navy is still b because of the damage you just saw it's so severe it's also possible those sailors could still be in the wreckage on board. just minutes ago we learned that a total of five sailors had to be medevacked including the commander of the ship. this morning the "uss fitzgerald" has been tugged back to port but at least seven sailors remain missing. the navy saying multiple sailors were injured in the monstrous collision with the container ship, five sailors hurt badly enough they had to be medevacked. one of them the ship's commanding officer. the japanese coast guard leading the initial rescue. you can see responders crowded near the wreckage to extract the wounded. helicopter footage shows the destroyer's mangled midsection, the damage caving in compartments, destroying ship
7:03 am
the navy saying damage both above and belowater those red hoses seen pumping seawater out of the belly of the ship which typically has a crew of nearly 300. the navy says this 30,000-ton container ship and the much smaller 9,000-ton u.s. destroyer collided in open water 56 miles southwest of yokosuka, japan. the navy telling abc news this morning that the extent of the personnel injuries aboard the ship is still being assessed. now, there are two major questions going forward. which of the ships had the right of way and perhaps a bigger issue that even though it was the dead of night, how did a ship with some of the most sophisticated radar and sonar on the planet neither see or manage to avoid something the size of a small island bearing down on it. dan, paula. >> questions we'll be addressing j
7:04 am
joining us now from washington is retired marineabc ns questio the most glaring one that we all have, these ships aren't traveling swiftly on one another's radar. how could a collision have happened? >> it's hard to imagine how it could have. as matt said two sophisticated ships and they should have seen each other. on the other hand this happened really just about ten miles outside of the mouth of tokyo bay which is one of the busiest ports in the world. it was the middle of the night and so oftentimes what happens in these collisions at sea it's a series of mistakes on both ships that lead to a tragic event. >> we are as everybody knows at a time of heightened fears over north korea. what kind of impact could taking a destroyer like this out of commission, what kind of impact could that have on our ability to defend ourselves and allies. >> it's one of the
7:05 am
sophisticated ships and has a special radar and special set of ss south korea or u.s. bases in the region so the navy is going to want to backfill this quickly because the "fitzgerald" will be out of service for a long time. >> thank you. back at home this morning we're hearing reports of an increasingly frustrated president trump who is dealing with that unremitting drumbeat of news about the russia investigation. >> the associated press quotes trump advisers and confidants describing an angry president yelling at television sets covering coverage. he has told associates he believes he has the legal authority to fire robert mueller. abc's david wright is at the white house for us. david, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, paula and dan. this weekend the president is off to camp david. his very first trip to the presidential retreat and this father's day getaway
7:06 am
one where his frustrations do seem president trump drove another stake into president obama's legacy. signing an executive order to scrap obama's policy of detente with cuba. >> effectively immediately i am canceling the last administration's completely >> reporter: cuba lasted back rejecting what it called manipulation for political purposes and double standards in the treatment of human rights. but trump upstaged himself acknowledging for the first time in a tweet that he is indeed under investigation after firing fbi director james comey. i am being investigated for firing the fbi director by the
7:07 am
man who told me to fire the fbi director.ctor,girich clearly felt differently in the's 90s when he voted to impeach bill clinton for obstructing justice during the monica lewinsky investigation. just in case the president and president's men are lawyering up. trump added a high-profile washington attorney to his personal legal time. vice president pence has hired a person attorney. even the president's longtime lawyer is getting a lawyer. for all its frustrations the presidency does seem to be good for donald trump's bottom line. a new financial disclosure form released overnight lists assets worth nearly a billion and a half dollars, his golf courses, his hotels are doing a booming business. he still owns them but one former ethics czar for
7:08 am
administration tells us what we don't know is where he borrows money from. pollster kristen as dan lovingly refers to as ksa. >> she'll love it, right? kristen, as we mentioned the president believes he has the legal authority to fire robert mueller and according to the ap some of trump's circle are preaching cautions but others including his son don jr. say mueller must go. if he were to fire mueller how do you think that would go down. >> it would be explosive if he made that decision because as soon as it was announced there will be a special prosecutor and it would be robert mueller a figure respected across the political spectrum here in washington, this gave a lot of trump's allies on capitol hill, republicans, the opportunity to say, look, this is good. he's a good investigator. this will clear this all up and we can move on.
7:09 am
trump's allies on the hill continue to say this would be a good thing and put a b president, is frustrated, friends say and unsure what to do apart from tweeting which he views as the most direct and effective way of defending himself and venting his anger. so in your view are these tweets hurting or helping him? >> i think donald trump is his own worst enemy when it comes to these tweets. i.d. understandable if you are him and think you're innocent and want to get your message out, donald trump's been never shy about saying he's a fan of the media but with these tweets he's continuing to stir up trouble, keep the focus on the story when, for instance, folks in -- on capitol hill would rather be talking about things like infrastructure, health care, tax reform. it shifts the narrative and makes it so that he's continuing to seem like he's struggling against this
7:10 am
cover-up where he claims there's no crime. >> now, it >> his numbers have not been great but they have stayed ons of his presidency and this russia investigation is one in particular where most of his supporters tend to think that's in the right. this isn't what will break them away from him but rather if there isn't delivery on things like health care reform, tax reform, economic growth, these are the thicks that would make voters come back to him or begin to leave him in bigger numbers. >> the base seems to be holding firm, kristen soltis anderson, aka, ksa, thanks for joining us on a saturday morning. we appreciate. we turn to another story break overnight, the protesters out in the streets in minnesota after a jury there acquitted an officer in the fatal shooting of philando castile. >> now, the case made headlines all over the world when castile's girlfriend, remember she took to facebook live in the aftermat
7:11 am
her boyfriend dying in the seat next to her. a m acquitting the officer who fatally shot philando castile moments before this infamous video was live streamed on facebook by his girlfriend. >> he's licensed to carry. he was trying to get out his i.d. and his wallet out his pocket and he let the officer know. >> reporter: the police officer holding that gun then 29-year-old jeronimo yanez, castile's girlfriend calmly recording as her young daughter reassured her from the backseat. >> it's okay. i'm right here with you. >> reporter: castile there in the driver's seat fatally wounded. prosecutors charging yanez with second degree manslaughter. at trial arguing the officer panicked and lost control. >> i told him to the to reach for it. i told him t

>> reporter: castile's family saying he was raciallte for his. this morning, yanez's team satisfied with the verdict while castile's family says they've been denied justice. castile's mother taking to facebook live after the verdict was announced. >> now they got free rein to keep killing us, any kind of way they want to. >> reporter: and yanez will not be returning to the police force. the city of saints anthony saying it's not in the public's best interest. the two sides are now negotiating a voluntary separation agreement. >> so much anger here. is eva, thank you. overnight bill cosby breaking his silence speaking out for the first time since going on trial for sexual assault. >> this as jurors are going to be
7:13 am
of deliberations this morning and abc's days, their honest work. >> reporter: an appeal that specifically targeted the jurors. >> i think bill cosby and his publicist are trying to send a subtle message to the jury to wrap things up. >> reporter: cosby's statement addressed a sequestered jury supposedly isolated from the media and his statement. >> oftentimes in these cases, things they get played out in the media have a way of making their way back to the jurors. >> reporter: the jury of 12 has already deliberated for 52 hours without a verdict. the trial itself was only 36 hours. and now the defense is calling for a mistrial. the judge chastised the defense for repeatedly calling for a mistrial due to the length of deliberations and added if the jury comes back ad
7:14 am
mistrial. so far, the jury has asked more from 2005 where he talked about obtaining other women prior to sexual encounters though he never admitted to do so without their knowledge. the jury also asked to hear the definition of reasonable doubt. for "good morning america," linsey davis, abc news, norristown, pennsylvania. >> we will be following that trial every step of the way. a lot of other news and for that over to dr. ron claiborne. good morning, sir. >> i knew that was coming. diana and paula, good morning to you, adrienne, good morning, everyone. we begin in washington, d.c. where an investigator say they found a list of a dozen republican lawmakers on the gunman who opened fire on a group of kongmen. police say james hodgkinson shot and wounded house majority whip steve scalise and
