tears for both candidates in this hall. and there is considerable suspension in the room right now. what will sanders supporters do when hillary clinton reaches that magic number? eight years after losing the nomination to barack obama, hillary clinton is about to clinch the no, ma'mination. as we come on, she's about 250 delegates away from that magic number. and so many here in the hall, in the democratic party, wondering how much that emotional speech overnight by the first lady, michelle obama, will help hillary clinton. it is all breaking right now here, and bill clinton will give what could be his most personal speech ever as he talks about his wife, later tonight. a woman still so unknown to many in this country, will he say anything that changes their minds? but first, abc's cecilia vega live down in the hall with the roll call vote under way. cecilia, i was just down there on the floor. what excitement in the room. >> reporter: it is electric down here, david. we are witnessing history right now. there are people all around me in tears as they watch this roll
call vote. hillary clinton just minutes away from capturing this nomination. as history is made, tears. >> hillary! >> reporter: from those casting their vote to nominate a woman for president of the united states. >> hillary clinton! >> reporter: to those who saw their chance slip away. bernie sanders' brother crying -- >> it is with enormous pride that i cast my vote for bernie sanders. >> reporter: as the senator himself, in the convention hall, looked on with pride. >> reporter: we are down here on this floor right now. the sense in this hall, history is about to be made, as the democratic party nominates the first woman ever to be president of the united states. this is the democratic party trying to heal itself. prom innocent sanders supporters like comedian sarah silverman urging unity. >> i am proud to be apart of
bernie's movement and a vital part of that movement is making absolutely sure that hillary clinton is our next president of the united states. >> reporter: but the reaction from many sanders die hards, a chorus of boos. >> can i just say -- to the bernie or bust people -- you're being ridiculous. >> reporter: the woman tasked with bringing calm to a house divided -- first lady michelle obama. taking it to donald trump without ever even mentioning his name. >> don't let anyone ever tell you that this country isn't great, that somehow we need to make it great again, because this right now is the greatest country on earth. >> reporter: mrs. obama and and there declir that it is clinton that can protect the future for america's children. >> there is only one person who
i trust with that responsibility. only one person who i believe is truly qualified to be president of the united states, and that is our friend, hillary clinton. >> reporter: and in perhaps the night's most powerful moment, the first lady, emotional, talking about her historic time in the white house, and the history still to be made there. >> i wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves. and i watch my daughters, two beautiful, intelligent, black young women, playing with their dogs on the white house lawn. and because of hillary clinton, my daughters and all our sons
and daughters now take for granted that a woman can be president of the united states. >> reporter: bernie sanders himself calling for democrats to rally behind clinton. >> any objective observer will conclude that based on her ideas and her leadership, hillary clinton must become the next president of the united states. >> let's get right back to cecil cecilia vega live in the convention hall. cecilia, you can feel it in the room. we're about 2,315 delegates. she needs to get to 2,382. she's almost there in making history. what do you know about bill clinton tonight, what he will say in very personal terms, making the case for his wife? >> reporter: david, bill clinton has given nine speeches at conventions over the course of his lifetime, but never one like we will hear tonight. he is here as a former
president, of course, he is here as a party leader, but most importantly tonight, bill clinton is here as a husband. and his job is to present a side of hillary clinton, david, that america does not yet know. >> all right, cecilia, stay tuned. we might come ba to you just as soon as we make the headline here that she has, in fact, reached that number. i want to get back to jon karl who is also down on the floor, and jon, what are your sources telling you, what are you expecting when she hits the number and when they finish the entire roll call of these states? >> reporter: over here to the vermont -- vermont will vote last and we expect bernie sanders will be there to, we think, i expect, say let's move to make this unanimous. unanimous for hillary clinton. it will be quite a statement. we'll see how his supporters in this hall play it. they have been enjoying every single moment of having a one more chance to vote for bernie
sanders. >> we're just a couple of delegates away here. the excitement in the hall. now you have that microphone in hand, so, jon, let me ask you that again. you believe that you are hearing that bernie sanders might take part in this history-making moment? >> reporter: david, i expect any minute now that we will see bernie sanders come down over there into the vermont delegation, vermont will vote last. that bernie sanders will announce the vote for vermont. keep in mind, he won vermont with 86% of the vote, so, those are all bernie sanders delegates, but that he will, i expect, move to make the vote unanimous for hillary clinton. we'll see how his supporters take it in the hall. >> all right, jon karl, we'll be coming back to you, as well, jon, thank you. in the meantime, there are major new developments tonight, u.s. authorities do believe russian hackers were behind the hack on the democratic party, revealing those e-mails and fanning the flames here among sanders supporters. vladimir pew tip, of course, has a long history with hillary clinton. they are not the best of friends. the clinton camp has asked, is
russia trying to help donald trump? well, tonight here, reports of popup warnings that might reveal who was spying all along. here's abc's chief investigative correspondent brian ross now. >> reporter: there is growing, specific evidence tonight of the involvement of vladimir putin's intelligence agencies in the cyber attack on the dnc. a smoking gun in the malware code used for the hack. >> it was an ip address that had been previously seen in other russian attributed attacks. >> reporter: leading democrats see a russian conspiracy to help donald trump win the election. >> they have a real motivation here. there is no one they would like more in the white house than a friend like donald trump. >> reporter: putin has frequentfrequent ly praised trump. trump talks about putin in the most glowing terms. >> look, hey, putin likes me. think i'd get along well with him. i respect putin. he's a strong leader. >> reporter: trump is a well-known figure in moscow, where he appeared in a russian music video. >> you're fired.
>> reporter: for his projects around the world, trump has sought investors from the ranks of russian billionaires close to putin, including one of them who hosted trump's miss universe pageant three years ago. and trump's campaign manager, paul manafort, worked as a political consultant for pro-russian candidates in ukraine. he's denied, too, any connection to the hacked dnc e-mails. >> it's absurd. no basis to it. >> reporter: according to one of the leaked e-mails, as first reported by yahoo! news, a democratic party researcher reported she got this popup warning that she was the target of state sponsored actors after she tried to search paul manafort's name online. >> all right, brian ross, thank you. i want to get to jon karl. she's now surpassed that key number, 2,382. she's over that mark. >> reporter: by our analysis, the state of south dakota put
her over the top. i got to tell you, david, it hasn't quite dawned on this hall yet that it has happened. they are still going state by state. they have not officially announced it from the podium. you can imagine when that moment happens, this place will erupt. but that official moment won't happen until vermont. >> you make an important point, jon. as we are in this hall, we should let folks know, there is no total number of delegates up on that screen behind us. so, as you point out, the people in the room -- it's not clear to them that the history has been made by hillary clinton. your sources were telling you, they're going to wait until the very end of the list and there's a very good chance that perhaps bernie sanders will take part in that history? >> reporter: that is exactly right, david. they have not told this crowd that hillary clinton already has enough delegates to clinch the nomination and they're waiting for that moment, at the very end, to go through every last state, getting a chance to vote.
with the very last one, the state of vermont, and bernie sanders. and i expect he's going to be down there any minute. >> all right, jon karl. we should let our viewers at home know that when that moment happens, we will bring it to them live. in the meantime, donald trump tweeting throughout the first night of the democratic convention, and to, he tweeted this question. why haven't the democrats speaking about isis? his running mate, mike pence, was asking the same question tonight, and our george stephanopoulos sat down with the vice president, asking, why aren't the democrats talking about isis? >> mike pence this morning at the vfw, it is extraordinary to think that yesterday in philadelphia, 61 speakers came to the podium and not one of them named isis by name. this man, donald trump, will name our enemies would apology and he will defeat them. >> we have the single-most significant homeland security of any country in the world. we have the finest special forces in the world and what are they doing? pence and trump? what they're doing is, they're
breaking up our alliances. these guys don't know what they're talking about. >> are they right when they say, 61 speakers last night, no mention of isis. politifact says that's true. >> well, that koushgs bcould be there's a lot more speakers to come. >> will you talk about that? >> there's a lot more speakers to come. >> george stephanopoulos, his full interview tomorrow on "good morning america." i'll be joining george and the entire political team later tonight in primetime, 10:00 eastern, for full coverage of bill clinton's speech. and when news breaks here on the floor, when that history happens and perhaps bernie sanders playing a role, we will go right back down to that floor. in the meantime tonight, there is a lot of other news to get to. a major headline developing this evening in france. two men storming a catholic church, forcing an elderly priest to kneel at the altar and then brutally murdering him. police rushing to the scene, killing two attackers. one of them had tried to go to syria to join isis, according to authorities. a third man later arrested. tonight, isis is now claiming responsibility and abc's alex
marquardt is right there, on the scene for us. >> reporter: the two attackers burst into the 16th century normandy church just as morning mass was ending. "they forced the priest to his knees," a nun said, "and recorded a kind of sermon, in arabic." they stabbed the throat of 86-year-old father jacques hamel in front of two parishioners and three nuns, one of whom escaped. elite police set up a perimeter. and as the attackers came out, they were shot dead. a short time later, isis claimed the killers as their followers. one of them was 19, arrested twice for trying to go to syria. he was under house arrest with a tracking bracelet. this is the fourth isis-inspired attack in europe in just two weeks. following the bastille day tragedy in nice that left 84 dead, and two others in germany. a stabbing rampage and a suicide bomb. the vatican said today that pope francis is horrified by this barbaric attack on a church.
and tonight, the french president warned his country that this will be a long war. david? >> alex, thank you. >> i do want to get back down to cecilia vega, who has been covering the clinton campaign from the start. there are reports, cecilia, that bernie sanders is on his way to the vermont delegation. they have moved vermont to the end of the list here, just a couple of states away. we could be witnessing that unity that the clinton campaign had so hoped for. >> reporter: and something they've been needing for the last couple of days here in philadelphia, david, hillary clinton just put out a tweet right now, it had one word, the word "history." and a photo of her. there will be a generation of children after today who will grow up knowing that a woman can be nominated for president of the united states of a major party, than is a first. no matter the political leanings, if you are for bernie sanders or hillary clinton in this room right now, there is a sense that history is being made. we are seeing tears, we are seeing photos being taken. and all of this, david, as jon
karl mentioned, this is just in this moment, this crowd still does not know that hillary clinton has reached that threshold. >> cecilia, stay right there on the floor. i want to bring in jonathan karl. jon, what are you hearing about senator sanders? >> reporter: bernie sanders is here. he just came in and sat down. his wife jane standing up there. he's standing right behind the vermont sign, and he's getting ready. it will be bernie sanders that steps to that microphone and tells this convention hall that hillary clinton has won the democratic nomination. quite a moment. what remains to be seen is how his supporters take that. when he walked in just a short while ago, just moments ago, this place erupted into chants of "bernie, bernie." >> jon karl, we know that hillary clinton has just tweeted one word, perhaps that says it all for her, rushing eight years later and clinching the noll nation, her tweet, simply, "history." >> reporter: she knows what this crowd does not yet know, which is that she has clinched the
nomination. and this crowd, once again, cheering -- we're at washington state right now. very soon, we will hear from the state of vermont. you can hear the chants right now, chanting for bernie. remember, washington state, which is voting right now, was a bernie sanders state. >> all right, we're going to take a break here, a very short break. stay tuned with abc news, we'll show you the moment as it happens in a moment. i had so many thoughts once i left the hospital after a blood clot. what about my wife... ...what we're building together... ...and could this happen again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? i spoke to my doctor and she told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots. but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... ...turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless you doctor tells you to.
eliquis can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you.
