for the republican national convention just released as donald trump's veepsstakes draws to a close after one more round of auditions, he is set to make a decision today and appear with his pick tomorrow. the latest from tom llamas. >> reporter: good morning to you. we now have a day and a time for the announcement. trump tweeting it's going to be friday at 11:00 a.m. now all we need is a name. overnight newt gingrich making his case arguing he and trump are cut from the same cloth because and i'm not joking here they're both pirates. today could be decision day for donald trump. his search for a running mate now down to two people. >> i'm at three, potentially four but in my own mind i probably am thinking about two. >> reporter: sources tell abc news, the two finalists are likely newt gingrich and indiana governor mike pence. >> i suspect sometime tomorrow that mike and i will both get phone calls, and one of us will be packing our bags to go to new york, and the other one will be going to watch it on tv.
7:03 am
>> reporter: pence may have benefited from a mechanical issue that grounded the candidate in indiana. pence ended up hosting the trump family at his home meeting with the trump children. >> nothing was offered. nothing was accepted but we had a great conversation about the country, challenges facing america and my firm belief that donald trump is going to provide the kind of leadership that america needs. >> reporter: but the indiana governor shouldn't pick his seat on trump force one just yet. newt gingrich also flew to indiana wednesday to meet with the trump family. newt, breaking down what trump may be considering. >> in many ways donald trump is like a pirate. he's outside the normal system. he gets things done. he's bold. he's actually like a figure out of a movie. in a lot of ways my entire career has been a little like a pirate. do you want a two-pirate ticket or want to take a solid guy -- >> reporter: trump who has play by his own rules from the get-go
7:04 am
could end up with a surprise pick and going with his gut on this call. >> i want to pick somebody solid, smart. i'm not looking for an attack dog. >> reporter: as the drama builds around the search, he's also dealing with yet another court matter. trump demanding $10 million in damages from former campaign adviser sam nunberg saying he violated a nondisclosure agreement by leaking a story to "the new york post" about an alleged screaming match between ex-campaign manager corey lewandowski and a female staffer. trump's camp says the story is untrue. but nunberg claims he wasn't the leak referring to the matter in his filings as a lover's quarrel. >> neither side is commenting. nunberg is ask the court to drop the matter. we have the speakers list for the rnc and know that all of the trump adult children will be speaking along with melania trump and hearing from speaker paul ryan, ted cruz, chris christie and newt gingrich, guys. >> we don't know exactly when.
7:05 am
>> we don't know when but he'll be speaking. >> on the list. will he be in the vp slot. >> no pirate patch over the eye, just newt. >> good to know. thank you. now to the democrats and hillary clinton's scathing new attack on donald trump saying her opponent is dividing the country and a threat to american democracy. abc's cecilia vega is on the campaign trail in springfield, illinois, good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: amy, good morning to you. it was in this historic building behind me that hillary clinton made that case but she said she's part of the problem too, that some of her words have helped fuel division in this country. in the same chamber where abraham lincoln denounced slavery hillary clinton laid out her newest attack. >> this man is the nominee of the party of lincoln. we are watching it become the party of trump. >> reporter: in the old state capitol in springfield, illinois, where lincoln said a house divided against itself cannot stand, clinton accused
7:06 am
donald trump of dividing the trump for this generation. >> his campaign is as divisive as any we have seen in our lifetimes. it is built on stoking mistrust and pitting american against american. >> reporter: the new attacks come as those polls show a tight race for clinton and trump in battleground states like iowa and ohio and she is now losing ground in florida. her strategy, bring in the reinforcements. clinton hits the campaign trail today with virginia senator tim kaine, rumored to be a potential vp pick and she is laser focused on hammering trump. >> he said that he understands systemic bias against black people because, and i quote, even against me the system is rigged, unquote. even this, the killing of people is somehow all about him.
7:07 am
>> reporter: and again clinton has what looks like it could be a vp audition today out there with virginia senator tim kaine. george, her campaign is still vetting possible running mate picks right now. >> thanks very much. more on this from our political analyst matthew dowd. a lot to get to. let's begin with this vee veepsstakes. pretty transparent process if you take donald trump at his word and struggling between his head and heart. indiana governor mike pence consensus pick of his advisers, it appears would pacify some conservatives at the convention, solid safe choice. newt gingrich, a lot more like donald trump, unconventional choice for sure. where do you think he goes? what difference will it make? >> well, george, you and i have watched this for a year. there's no telling where he goes and there's no telling even if it is these two, we think it's these two but there's no telling. i thought actually i can't let go of newt gingrich's pirate reference. there's so many things i could
7:08 am
say about pirates of the caribbean on "stranger tides" will they call their plane the black pearl. who's captain jack sparrow, who is barbosa, no telling. my bet, my gut says he goes with mike pence. it seems the safer choice and it seems the choice that will unite the party which is the main goal i think of his vp pick at this point, uniting the party. >> he needs to have a good convention next week. we got this list of speakers released by the rnc. you know, we'll see the trump kids every single night and donald trump at least once, maybe more than that. you did get the big republican leaders in the house and the senate. but he really needs to find some way to get that bounce out of the convention. it's usually about a four to five-point bounce. >> well, donald trump i think better than anybody and you and i have both been at conventions and around them. he understands that a convention is a broadway production. it is about interesting characters with a compelling
7:09 am
blot and driving message. i think donald trump understands that and i think he's going to produce this convention in a way that he'll probably get maximum bounce but donald trump's already got, it looks like, some bounce coming into the convention. >> that's right. in fact a new poll out backs that. cbs and "the new york times" have a new poll showing the national race tied at 40-40. we know these polls will bounce around but what's striking is that the two major candidates both at 40%. that's pretty low. >> absolutely and i think not only do you see these national polls now converging to even, you've seen all those state polls now converging to very close and within the margin of oreo. it is an amazing thing that the president of the united states again we've seen this in the past could get elected with under 40% and even in this election close to 40% of the vote. it means a very divided country. >> boy, it sure does. matthew dowd, thanks very much. all right, george, now to the espy awards, the top nba stars lebron james, carmelo
7:10 am
anthony, chris paul and dwyane wade issuing a big challenge to go beyond the game and act to end violence and t.j. holmes was there for it all in los angeles. t.j., what an incredible night. >> reporter: it's not what anybody expected, robach. not even the espn producers of the show originally. this wasn't the plan. but what we saw last night on the biggest night in sports was four nba superstars take the stage standing side by side and calling out their fellow athletes for not saying enough and doing enough when it comes to gun violence and race in this country. a night to celebrate great athletes started instead with lebron james issuing a direct challenge to them. >> it's time to look in the mirror and ask ourselves, what are we doing to create change? >> reporter: lebron, dwyane wade, chris paul and carmelo anthony sieged the stage to
7:11 am
address it. >> the endless gun violence in chicago, dallas, not to mention orlando, it has to stop. enough. >> let's use this moment as a call to action for all professional athletes. >> reporter: wade later told me they came up with the idea to do this themselves. then asked and got the okay from espn. >> we said, listen, we have to do something. we have a platform, you know, what can we do and perfect time and espys is coming up so, we all wrote our own piece of what we wanted to say and we wanted our voice to be heard. >> you guys ready to have some fun? >> reporter: the show soon after turned to celebration. lebron didn't get to sit much. he won three individual awards including best male athlete. vice president joe biden was there too, he presented the jimmy v perseverance award to craig sager. >> he teaches us how to live with perseverance and passion, fearless, hopeful, together. >> reporter: the longtime nba sideline reporter who's been battling leukemia.
7:12 am
>> i will never give up and i will never give in. i will continue to keep fighting. >> reporter: sager was mobbed by his tnt colleagues after his speech. >> wherever you're from, whatever you think, whatever your politics are, you can't forget is that every one of those people who dies has a story, this is one of them. >> reporter: one honoree couldn't be there. xavier dobson killed when he tried to shield three girls from bullets. his mother and two brothers accepted the arthur ashe courage award on his behalf. >> now, i urge you to think tonight about why he died and what you can do tomorrow to prevent the next innocent young man or woman from being lost, as well. >> reporter: a celebratory night that struck a serious even somber tone at times. with this lasting message.
7:13 am
>> we all have to do better. >> reporter: and, of course, the espys is always were a celebration, a celebration of great athletes but i have to tell you it's what everybody was talking about last night, that moment at the top and it was a different type of tone to the evening and even lebron james said last night on a guys we're honoring muhammad ali we do a disservice to his legacy if we don't speak up more. >> t.j. holmes, thank you so much. >> boy, and that hero xavier dobson, what a story, what a selfless, selfless act. that should be celebrated. >> it certainly was last night and hopefully it will continue to be so and the espys touched on the heated national debate over race and policing as that was happening a service for philando castile who was killed by an officer in minnesota will be held today and thousands of mourners attending funeral services on wednesday to honor the dallas officers, president obama holding a marathon four-hour meeting at the white house on police and criminal justice reform.
7:14 am
abc's jon karl is at the white house with more on all that. jon, the president meeting with law enforcement and black lives matter activists. tell us what happened? >> reporter: good morning, amy. this was an extraordinary meeting, first of all, as you mentioned, it was long, more than four hours and the president was there and engaged in the discussion for all of it. it included an extraordinary breadth of people including as you mention black lives matter activists, several big city police chiefs, mayors, community leaders. after the meaning was over, the president said that there must be an extended effort to what he said, quote, grind it out to improve relations between police and the communities that they are there to protect. but he said this is going to be frustrati frustratingly slow in the coming weeks and months and will continue to see more tension between the two. >> the president has been speaking about it all week and gave a two-hour meeting with police with law enforcement on monday. he gave that powerful speech in dallas on tuesday.
7:15 am
and then he will be present at that town hall meeting this evening. this is the top priority for him. >> reporter: absolutely and spent an hour and a half with the victims, with the families of the murdered police officers in dallas. i expect that this will be a sustained commitment for the president that goes beyond his presidency. this will be one of his major causes after he leaves the white house. >> all right, jon karl at the white house, thank you so much, jon. president obama as we just said will join our town hall tonight to discuss the recent tragic shootings and how we can move forward. you can see "the president and the people" starting at 8:00 p.m., 7:00 central right here on abc. >> okay, we'll move on to those powerful storms creating flash floods in pennsylvania, hundreds of thousands without power in missouri, ginger, more is comeing. >> almost 400 severe storm reports in the last 24 hours from florida to wisconsin. kansas to virginia. this may look like a busy game of poke go, it is not. it was a dangerous afternoon in the midwest.

it inside. thanks, david. >> all right. thank you, david. now to an abc news exclusive. we're going to have the latest on the tragic death of a navy s.e.a.l. trainee. a san diego medical examiner is labeling his death by drowning a homicide. i sat down with his sister and family attorney speaking out for the first time. james derek lovelace was just one week into his navy s.e.a.l. training when the unthinkable happened. drowning during a swimming exercise. why did he want to become a s.e.a.l. so badly? >> he said i want to defend my country. i want to fight terrorism. he wanted to help this country and make a difference. >> reporter: last wednesday a medical examiner's report was made public ruling the 21-year-old's may death a homicide, saying while some could consider his death an accident, the actions and the inactions of the instructors and other individuals involved were excessive and directly contributed to the death. you found out your brother's death was ruled a homicide. >> yes.
7:35 am
>> how? >> by reading the autopsy report on facebook. we had no clue that the autopsy report was going to come out and be shown to the public before the family. >> reporter: navy s.e.a.l. train something considered to be the most rigorous training in the u.s. military. while the report says lovelace was reported to not be a strong swimmer, his family disagrees saying he sent home letters writing, the pool here is so nice, i love swimming in it. i'd say i'm one of the most fit guys in here. i'd rather die than quit so i know i'm going to make it through. >> i talked to him the day before he passed away. he said he was going through these exercises like nothing, something wasn't done right. >> reporter: while instructors are supposed to create adverse conditions like splashing and yelling, dunking goes against training regular laces. the medical examiner and ncis officer watched surveillance video showing him struggling and an instructor approaches and
7:36 am
dunks him continually 134r5shing him for several minutes as he continues to struggle before dunking him again. >> i think it's fair to say there is a few bad apples and kind of rogue instructors that took it too far and that's really the problem here. >> reporter: according to the report he was still breathing when he was eventually pulled out of the pool but soon turned unresponsive. >> i think the medical examiners came to their conclusion that the dunking started his initial drowning and from then on, they caused what happened to him ultimately. >> do you believe that you'll be allowed to see that video. >> i believe when the ncis investigation is over we will be. i mean, if not i won't stop until i have my hands on it. >> reporter: while defense officials say the medical examiner's ruling does not mean a crime had been committed the navy tells abc news it is fully cooperating with authorities and remains committed to providing the lovelace family as much support as possible in this difficult time. what does justice look like to you? >> i want to see the instructors
7:37 am
held accountable for their actions. >> reporter: derek's sister lindsay and his girlfriend rachel are starting justice for derek raising money for boys who want to become s.e.a.l.s to go to crossfit if they can't afford it. derek had intended to propose to rachel with his late mother's wedding ring in june. sadly, he came to such a tragic end there in may but despite what happened to him, the fact that the family wants to encourage other young men to join the s.e.a.l.s is pretty remarkable. that's their support for the military and what derek would have wanted. >> they do deserve a lot of answers. >> they do. >> thanks very much. coming up when we come back on our big board, tom brady's big setback. will deflategate go the supreme court. road rage revelations, nearly 0% of us admit we get angry behind the wheel. is "game of thrones" set to crush the competition at the emmy, our insiders are back in just two minutes. to severe plaq, isn't it time to let the real you shine through?

with more of today's top stories and we'll start with deflategate, it's still around. legal battle between tom brady and the nfl could end up in the supreme court after brady was denied a rehearing by the 2nd circuit court of appeals. we talk about that with sunny hostin. the question is is tom brady going to give up or go to the supreme court? what do you think the chances are. >> well, i got to tell you, i don't think there are very many chances. this is a real hail mary by tom brady. the supreme court review is discretionary and takes less than 5% of its cases and so the bottom line is out of 7,000 to 10,000 cases only about 80 are taken so it's very unlikely. >> so unlikely that it be taken. i also heard ruth bader ginsburg could be back in the news with this one because he could dir t directly appeal to her. what are the chances, by the way, if she or the court decides to hear 9 case that he could win? >> i don't think that the notorious rbg is going to give him a win here.
7:41 am
the bottom line is that because she comes from the 2nd circuit, yes, she is the justice that will hear this petition but four out of eight of the justices have to agree to take this case so this is a really juicy sports controversy, a legal one, not so much. >> what's his best argument? >> he has an argument that nfl commissioner roger goodell did him wrong. he's saying roger goodell shouldn't have suspended him for four games. he's saying roger goodell acted outside the scope of the collective bargaining agreement and didn't give him adequate notice of the rules. he is pretty upset with the nfl commish but the supreme court taking deflategate case with all the things that are going on in the world, doubtful. >> don't bet on it, okay, thanks. >> fair enough. now to an alarming new report on road rage. the american automobile association revealing this morning nearly 0% of drivers admit to expressing significant anger behind the wheel at least once in the past year.
7:42 am
dr. elizabeth lombardo, a clinical psychologist joins us now, dr. lombardo, i have to say that i'm not surprised by those numbers. we're saying it's outrageous about i don't think it is having driven a few times in my life. what do you think why people are so quick to rage when they're behind the wheel? we can all be mild-mannered and get behind the wheel and change. >> stress levels are higher than ever. when we stress out we tend to personalize other people's behavior, they're insulting me by doing that and the anonymity of driving, you don't see them face-to-face an a lot of types we give ourselves permission to act more aggressively. >> if you feel this coming on and boiling up h. is for amy more than anyone he, what do you do? >> quick intervention, amy. >> so what tips do you have. >> what you want to do, first is take a deep breath or turn up your music. laugh even if something isn't

funny, do something to reduce your stress. stress is on a continuum from 0 to 10. when we are at a 7 or higher we don't think rationally. so first decrease that stress. and then play the game i call i wonder why. i wonder why they reacted like that. we tend to assume it's because they're being insulting to us but really maybe they're on their way to the hospital because someone's having a baby or maybe they're trying to get away from their in-laws as quickly as possible. when you change your perspective it can change your life. >> put yourself in the other driver's shoes. >> get away from their in-laws. that's hilarious. if i'm alone i try to pretend my children are in the car and react differently or hopefully when our children are in the car. >> all right, thank you, dr. lombardo. that was great. now we move on to the emmy nominations. they're set to announce them later this morning and choose from 8,000 submissions over 100 categories and nick watt joins us from l.a. this morning. hey, nick. you're looking dapper this morning there by the stage. what kind of story lines are you

8:34 am
best series nominee. i think in the comedy series category, there's a couple of dark horse, there's a netflix show called "master of none" starring aziz ansari a lot think could get in and "black-ish," there is a lot of sentiment around "black-ish." people want that to get a nomination. didn't get a series nomination last year and i think this year could. >> what about the stars? who do you think the breakout stars will be. >> the big breakout, if "mr. robot" gets nominated could be rami malek ho is the star of that show. i mean it's got a lot of critical buzz and premiered the second season last night on usa and if he gets a nomination that could really be a star-making move for him. and i think all of the people on "the people v. o.j. simpson," that has a huge ensemble cast and you could see nominations for almost all of them from john travolta to sterling k. -- to sarah paulson to the actors who played johnnie cochran and christopher darden, all of them could get nominated. >> and, nick, give us a dark

horse prediction. >> well, i think "the americans" is a great tv show and not one nearly enough -- constance wu, connor jessup cfrom "american crime" and an seize azari from "master of none." pretty amazing show. he's not the best actor in the world but that show is groundbreaking, is very amusing, very entertaining, very watchable. >> i love how nick has an opinion about everything. that's hilarious. matt, i want to ask which categories do you think are the most difficult to predict on this one? >> you know, i think the interesting thing will be the best actress category, whether some of these shows that are on their last legs, final season like "the good wife" and "downton abbey," whether julianna margulies, michelle dockery will get nominations on the way out.
8:36 am
sometimes shows get the, you know, sort of crowning achievement when their final seasons are nominated and the actors are, sometimes they don't. so we'll maybe have a jon hamm situation or not. >> we will see soon enough. matt and nick, thank you both. watch the 68th emmy awarded hosted by jimmy kimmel on september 18th right here on abc. out to ginger now. you're not happy because it's stormy. you can't understand rapids, michigan for -- grand rapids, michigan, i love that. severe storms in the center and new england. that's the big picture, let's get a check closer to your home. >> reporter: all right, ginger we're sweating across the region today. a lot of clouds, no rain, right
