coverage coming up. >> that's really big question. we'll be talking about it with george stephanopoulos. but we start here with the so-called heat-dome bringing stifling temperatures to most of america. there's the map. it's dangerous out there in many spots. especially so in los angeles. this wildfire has forced the evacuation of 1500 homes already. >> that fire is on the move. in a moment, ron will tell us if there's any relief in sight. first, to philip mena. who is on the front lines, just outside of los angeles, where firefighters are contending with triple-digit temperatures. philip? >> reporter: dan, paula, good morning. we're on a 450-acre ranch that has doubled as a backdrop for many famous hollywood productions for more than 40 years. this morning, it's been reduced to a flaming pile of rubble. this dangerous wildfire has spread from desolate hills into neighborhoods. >> this is fire station 135. >> reporter: this morning, the fast-moving sand fire has claimed multiple homes. businesses. and according to officials,

international sports has already upheld a decision banning all russian track and field athletes from the rio games. russian president putin saying the allegations are politically motivated and a western plot to undermine russia. the ioc's president promising the toughest sanctions available. there is tension within the ioc between those wanting to send a clear message to russia with an all-out ban and those who think it's unfair to punish clean athletes. that is a big question the ioc will be facing today. dan, paula? >> as you said, that would be unprecedented. just 12 days to go. thank you. the big news at home this week, the democratic national convention. which kicks off tomorrow in philadelphia. >> hillary clinton was on the stump on saturday introducing her new vp to the nation. virginia senator tim kaine. they'll share the stage at the convention in philadelphia, where is where we find abc's mary bruce this morning.

sanders supporters? david wright joins us with more. hi david. >> reporter: hi, paula. just when hillary clinton was hoping to put the whole notion of an e-mail controversy behind her, here comes an entirely different e-mail controversy. and one that threatens the unity the democrats are hoping to show in philadelphia. >> secretary clinton has won the democratic nominating process. >> reporter: the clinton campaign thought it successfully had put the bitter primary battle behind her. >> i can't help but reflect how much more enjoyable this election is going to be now that we're on the same side. >> reporter: as the democrats get ready to start their convention, leaked e-mails from the democratic national committee now show that sanders may have been right all along, when he claimed the party had its thumb on the scale for clinton all along. >> rigged is when somebody changes the rules in the middle of the game. >> reporter: wikileaks leaked 20,000 e-mails from seven top dnc officials. during primary season. does he believe in a god?
wondered one official. he had skated on saying he has a jewish heritage. i think i read he's an atheist. this could make several points difference with my peeps. some dnc officials refer to sanders as the insurgency. the dnc chairwoman, debbie wasserman schultz called his campaign manager an [ bleep ]. sanders made no secret his contempt for wasserman schultz. telling cnn in may he would fire her. >> with all due respect to the current chairperson, if elected president, she would not be re-elected to be chair of the dnc. >> reporter: according to the leaked e-mails, wasserman schultz decided not to respond to that, writing, this is a silly story. he isn't going to be president. well, donald trump seems to be enjoying all this. tweeting that the e-mail release was so bad that sappeders -- for sanders that it will make it impossible for him to support clinton, unless he's a fraud, says trump.
sanders' former campaign manager says somebody has to be held accountable. no comment from the dnc. we're told that they're in negotiations to significantly downgrade debbie wasserman schultz's role. at the convention. >> she's not speaking is she? >> she may be speaking. but probably, not so much. >> david, thank you. >> thanks, david. let's get out to abc news chief anchor george stephanopoulos who will be hosting "this week" later this morning. he's in philadelphia already. good morning, sir. >> good morning, guys. how's it going? >> we have to talk about wikileaks. you have politicians calling on bernie to recuse his endorsement of clinton. are you expecting chaos on the floor, like we saw at the republican convention last week? >> i think that is a little strong. there is a lot of upset here in philadelphia. no question about that. those wikileaks e-mails are startling, when you read them. it sort of proves what a lot of bernie sanders supporters thought all along.
i think you are definitely going to see some downgrading of debbie wasserman schultz's role. a lot of things being considered from getting a new ceremonial chairman to having her not speak in primetime. it's pretty clear sanders supporters would boo her pretty lustily if she appeared on the floor in prime time. it's something they have to work through today. there were long negotiations yesterday. they'll continue through sunday. >> a complication the campaign did not need. how do you think the selection of tim kaine is going over? we're hearing rumbling from the left of the party. how problematic is that? >> they were not too happy with the idea of tim kaine. no question. his support of trade deals in the past. he's recant his support of the transpacific partnership. they say he hasn't always been out front on the fight for things like gay rights. he's pro-life, though he supports a woman's right to choose, as well. he's against abortion. there have been questions in the progressive movement for tim kaine. issues about the banks, as well. i think his performance
yesterday went a ways to quiet some of that criticism. especially reaching out the latinos with all that talk in spanish at the event. there's still some grumbling. a lot of people will key off how bernie sanders reacts to the pick. we'll talk to him about that this morning on "this week." >> another big week for you, george. best of luck. and a reminder, george will anchor "this week" this morning from philadelphia. as the democrats gear up for their convention. also, we'll have complete coverage of the dnc all week.

morning. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, paula. that's right. music has just started up here at this memorial. outside the shopping center where all of this happened. we're getting a clearer picture this morning of the attacker. neighbors and friends saying he was shy and showed no outward sign of aggression. all the while, harboring an obsession with mass murders. it's a picture of a disturbed young man that munich authorities this morning are painting of the 18-year-old who carried out this horrific attack. identified as ali sonboly. he was allegedly obsessed with mass shooting rampages. this book, "why kids kill" found in his apartment. a study of school shootings, including columbine and virginia tech. >> he may have been immersing himself in the world of mass killings and looking for people he could emulate. >> reporter: the police also saying there's an obvious link between the munich attack and the fifth
anniversary of the killings of 77 people by anders brevik. most of them at a youth camp. he had allegedly hacked into a girl's facebook account and tried to lure people there by saying, i'll buy you something you want, but not too expensive. a duke university senior, tamina stoll, was on her way to the center when people were fleeing. >> i could tell they were so scared. >> reporter: she ran upstairs and filmed the chaos from her grandmother's balcony. >> i can't even find words. it's just horrible. >> reporter: in all, nine people would be killed. almost all of them teenagers. before the attacker turned the gun on himself. his body found half a mile away from the scene with 300 more rounds in his backpack. authorities are still trying to figure out how he got his hands on the gun. a glock 17, semi-automatic pistol. the same gun used by the attacker in the norwegian massacre.
now, germany has very strict gun control laws. he almost certainly got the gun on the black market. >> sounds like a disturbed young man. thank you. >> 300 more rounds on him. a lot more damage could have been done. let's get to ron. good morning, sir. >> dan, paula, good morning to you. sara, rob. good morning, everyone. we're going to begin in afghanistan where isis is claiming responsibility for a deadly suicide bombing in kabul. that killed 80 people and wounded more than 200. the bombing, the terror group's first in the afghan capital, targeted a peaceful demonstration over a power line. the white house called the attack heinous. the taliban also condemned it. back in the u.s., a small plane crashed into a house in haddam, connecticut. shortly after taking off from a nearby airport. the pilot was air-lifted to a hospital where he's said to be in critical condition. a man who was inside that house at the time was unharmed. and the wnba doing an about-face this morning.
