>> reporter: in a move without precedent, the united states secret service acknowledged it was aware of trump's comments about clinton. the agency released this tweet, saying, they are aware of the comments which some perceive, dana, as a threat from one major party nominee against another. >> major, thank you. a poll just released this morning, shows nearly 1 out of 5 republican voters want trump to quit the race. the poll was taken before this latest controversy. clinton campaign, which is already using trump's second amendment comment to help with fund-raising. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the clinton campaign says trump's comments demonstrate why more and more top republicans are defecting to their side every day. in fact, they are unveiling a new evident today to put those republicans to work, recruiting others. >> secretary clinton, any reaction to donald trump's comments about the second amendment of you today?

7:09 am
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 the 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
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 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
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 out 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 say things that 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 a second.
7:12 am
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 up right now 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, she could
7:13 am
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 thereet 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 able to lead even with this kind
7:14 am
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 punta gorda, about 70 miles south of tampa. david begnaud is there with the investigation. >> reporter: good morning. the entire police department is surrounding behind me. of the police department and that is where we are told the 73-year-old lady was shot and killed in what is being described as a horrible accident. here is 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, and he shot her. he should have been using blank round, but, instead, he had live ammo in his weapon.
7:15 am
gorda public safety complex. mary knowlton was about 75 people taking part in the city's eight-week citizen police academy. >> who participants were randomly selected to put through a shoot, don't shoot scenario and they would make decision on using simulated lethal force in a live role play. during the first scenario, in a horrible accident, participant mary knowlton was >> reporter: the elderly victim was transported to a local hospital and pronounced dead. her son gave a statement to cbs news saying, quote, this is a devastating time for us. 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 leader are absolutely devastated for everyone involved in this unimaginable event. >> reporter: knowlton was reportedly shot several times,
7:16 am
charlotte sun. she was active in the punta gorda community and volunteering as a board member for a 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? gayle, i have to tell you in revealed a community and a woman was known for the police department and the police chief knew her personally. >> you raise a 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

good to have you at the table. this is the first time they blocked ads that they have gone against the ad blocks. why is that? >> i don't know exactly why facebook has waited until now. they are dependent on advertising revenue the fact they are trying to counter the add ad blockers is surprising. you look at their recent fcc filings they have put in they are afraid that it is a threat to their business. the reason they are acting now presumably is, a, it's a big enough threat and enough users are using it they are losing subs they can win. a cat and mouse game goes on. the ad blocking companies come back and change their code to make the ads disappear again. facebook thinks they are figured it out and can win. >> how do they do this? >> what they are doing on facebook is they basically feed the ads in the content on to the page in exactly the same way. the way ads software usually works it scans all of the stuff on a page and says that is an ad, that is a story. block the ad.
