8:02 am
>> more chest bumping. they won game four bringing it to 3-1. they know they've got a steep hill to climb if they want to overtake the warriors. much more from the arena in cleveland coming up but down 3-1 they've been in this position before. >> series goes back to california now. we start here, though, with the intensifying battle between the president of the united states and the man that he fired as head of the fbi. >> president trump speaking out for the first time since james comey testified before congress refuting some of comey's central claims about their private conversations and telling our jon karl that he is willing to testify under oath. >> the president giving cryptic answers, however, to repeated questions about whether he taped conversations in the oval office saying he will let us know soon. >> meantime, sources tell abc news the president's legal team is firing back filing a complaint with the justice department asking for an inquiry into comey for leaking details and memos of those private conversations. abc's mary bruce is in bedminster, new jersey, where the president is spending the weekend. mary, good morning to you.
8:03 am
>> reporter: hi, good morning. well, the president is now on the offensive firing back at james comey saying he lied about their interactions during his sworn testimony before congress and now the president says he's willing to go under oath to prove it. this morning, it's his word -- >> those were lies, plain and simple. >> reporter: versus his word. >> some of the things that he said just weren't true. >> reporter: in his first remarks since james comey's stunning testimony, president trump declared vindication. >> no collusion, no obstruction. he's a leaker. >> reporter: the president embracing some of comey's accounts and flatly rejects others like comey's rekz election of their february meeting in the oval office where comey says the president told him to let go of the investigation into fired national security adviser michael flynn. >> i took it as a direction. >> right. >> i mean, this is the president of the united states with me alone saying i hope this -- i took it as this is what he wants me to do. now, i didn't obey that but
8:04 am
that's the way i took it. >> reporter: but in a heated exchange with jonathan karl trump says it never happened. >> i didn't say that. >> so he lied about that. >> well, i didn't say that. i mean i will tell you i didn't say that. >> reporter: the president also denies asking comey for his loyalty. >> i hardly know the man. i'm not going to say i want you to pledge allegiance. who would do that? who would ask a man to pledge allegiance under oath? think of it, i hardly know the man. it doesn't make sense. no, i didn't say that and i didn't say the other. >> would you be willing to speak under oath to give your version of these events? >> 100%. >> reporter: so who really said what? the answers could be on tape. >> and you seem to be hinting that there are recordings of those conversations? >> i'm not hinting anything. i'll tell you about it over a very short period of time. >> when is that? >> okay. okay. do you have a question here? >> when will you tell us about the -- >> over a fairly short period of time. >> tomorrow? now? are there tapes, sir? >> you're going to be very disappointed when you hear the answer. don't worry. >> reporter: and this morning, we still don't know if those tapes exist.
8:05 am
the president there punting on any firm response. but if there are tapes, the house intelligence committee has given the white house two weeks to turn them over. dan and paula. >> everybody wants to see those tapes if they do, indeed, exist. mary bruce, thanks for your reporting this morning. we want to bring in conservative commentator, tara setmayer and kate shaw, a former obama white house lawyer. thanks so much for joining us. tara, you hear he will testify under oath. what are you thinking? >> that was probably not what was advised to him by staff or his legal counsel. you never want to put your client -- i'm not a lawyer but i've been in politics long enough and seen investigations, i lived through the clinton era, and i was a comms director on capitol hill. you never want to put your member or the principal in that situation. but we all know that donald trump is notoriously litigious and he's been through this process more than once as far as testifying and giving
8:06 am
a deposition but he's also been notoriously untruthful about things and i think that puts him into some jeopardy and if we actually see him do this voluntarily, i'll be shocked. he may now though be compelled to do so because you have a special counsel and he can subpoena the president of the united states if he needs to and he just -- and the president just put himself in a situation where that may happen. >> i just want to follow up with kate because -- by saying that, did the president up the odds that he'll be asked to testify under oath, and if he does testify, what are the risks? >> well, he certainly does seem to invite some very quick requests sort of to follow on. you know, i agree his lawyers are probably going to do everything within their power to resist any request to have the president testify under oath. and i do think a whole sort of universe of new legal risks are opened up. you have the possibility not just of obstruction of justice but also perjury. remember when bill clinton was impeached by the house, of course, acquitted in the senate but the two charges for which he was impeached, obstruction of
8:07 am
justice and perjury so when you go under oath you don't know what questions you'll be asked and perjury becomes a real possibility. >> talk about james comey, the president is hitting him calling him a leaker because he did leak moment mes of private conversations. did he do anything illegal? >> you know, government officials using the press to get their version of the facts out is kind of a tale as old as time and i would say it's not unlawful. so long as there's nothing classified, no defense secrets are being divulged, you can call it unethical or distasteful but unlawful i think is a real stretch now. it's possible there were fbi protocols that were violated and so, you know, the inspector general could look at that but unlawful seems like a real stretch to me. >> tara, we've got a few seconds left. nearly 40% of the country still strongly supportive of this president. despite all of these swirling controversies, as a conservative how do you think these folks are viewing all of this news? >> well, i think the president and his surrogates have done a good job of constantly throwing out fake news, fake news any
8:08 am
time there's legitimate criticism so it muddies the water and people don't know what to do. president trump is playing the victim constantly, the media is out to get me. i've done nothing wrong. and he projects on to other people what he's actually doing. so right now what you're looking at is really a crisis of credibility. do you believe the 30-year impeccable record of james comey who testified under oath, or do you believe the president of the united states who we have caught more than one time not being truthful about things from the size of the crowds at his rallies to what his charitable foundation has done, so i think when that is presented in that respect, side by side, i think you're going to find that more people will probably go with the fbi director who has proof, has a record and has done so under oath. >> right. >> what conservatives choose to do and what republicans choose to do, you see them circling the wagons but becomes more difficult when the president continues to tweet and say things that he -- and behaved the way he's behaved. it makes it a little more problematic.
8:09 am
>> right now the base holding strong. tara and kate, thank you very much for your analysis on a saturday morning. we appreciate it. >> our pleasure. >> thank you. we want to turn to the nba finals and cleveland cavaliers staving off elimination winning game four sending the series back to sunny california. and abc's t.j. holmes who has been covering the finals, he consider this is a very tough assignment he has the highlights now from cleefrd. hey, t.j. >> hey, good morning, gang. look, nobody wanted to take this assignment. so, hey, somebody's got to do it but last night, did you see this, after one quarter the cavaliers were on pace to score 200 points in that game last night. they weren't just hot, they were the hottest we've ever seen in nba finals history. that's what it took to beat the warriors so we saw a lot of scoring but we also saw a little bit of pushing, a little shoving and a little jawing last night. >> cleveland is still alive. >> reporter: it ain't over yet. >> as golden state's quest for playoff perfection comes to an end tonight. >> reporter: lebron james and the cleveland cavaliers denied the golden state warriors a chance at wrapping up a
8:10 am
championship and a perfect playoff record friday night. >> curry hits the three-pointer. >> reporter: between kyrie irving's 40 points and lebron james' alley-oop to himself. >> a pass to himself. he throws it down. he went up in the air and had nowhere to go. >> reporter: the cavs had plenty of highlights in what was a chippy, testy -- >> a hard foul by draymond green. >> reporter: -- in your face kind of contest. gloria a rugby scrum has broken out. >> reporter: for the cavs it was simple, win or the season is over. they came out firing, 49 points in the first quarter, 86 in the half. both nba finals records. they also set the record for three-pointers made in an nba playoff game. >> corner three. >> reporter: and lebron james set the record for the most triple-doubles in nba finals history. >> when you're down 3-0 and you're fighting and you're trying to get a win, you know, you do whatever it takes. >> reporter: the cavs and warriors got in each other's
8:11 am
faces throughout the game. >> james and durant jawing at each other. >> reporter: including this chat between lebron and kevin durant which resulted in both getting technical fouls. >> durant drives. >> reporter: durant again lit up the cavaliers with 35 points. but stephen curry was a little off his game and finished with just 14 points. 1234r scoop layup. >> it was one of those nights where we just didn't have anything clicking. >> cleveland is a city of champions once again. >> reporter: with memories of last year's comeback lingering, the series is now headed back to golden state. >> one game and it's going to be even tougher in game five but we look forward to the challenge. >> reporter: so it seemed impossible, right? they were down 3-0. no team in nba playoff history has ever come back from that but now, guys, look at this bigger picture. they're down 3-1. the exact spot they were last year when they came back and won the championship and the popular refrain here even when they were down 3-0 has been cavs in seven so they were chanting that pretty loudly last night at the
8:12 am
"q." >> i think t.j. would like toens witness three more games. t.j., we're pulling for you so you can cover the series a little longer. thanks. you can watch game five monday at 9:00 eastern right here on abc. we are going to turn now, though, to a terrifying scene on a highway in texas. police chasing a speeding 18-wheeler. >> the truck ramming several cars before smashing into a barrier and setting off a fire. abc's erielle reshef has the very latest. >> reporter: a harrowing scene on a texas highway at the height of the noon rush hour. police trying to stop a semi they say was swerving and speeding. >> he continued at a high rate of speed. >> reporter: the driver in the rig luis cano olivas leading police on a wild chase slamming into several vehicles before coming to a screeching halt. >> our s.w.a.t. team is trying to make contact with the people that are inside of the trailer. >> reporter: the man behind the wheel of this incinerated car
8:13 am
managed to kick out his window, escaping with nonlife-threatening injuries traffic backed up for miles along i-30 in arlington. >> but this is in no way even over. >> reporter: dozens of drivers lining the highway as officers crouched with their guns drawn. after a nearly three-hour standoff, police coaxing olivas out of the cab. >> our s.w.a.t. team along with ft. worth s.w.a.t. team, we worked together and moving in and we were able to apprehend a single occupant of the semi trailer, and he is in custody right now. >> reporter: some of the lanes of that highway were closed for eight hours. the driver of the semi is out of the hospital and in jail. he is now facing charges of evading police and assault with a deadly weapon. police still don't know why he led them on that dangerous pursuit. >> wild scene, though, erielle. >> really crazy. it has been a week of intense testimony in the bill cosby sexual assault trial. on monday he's going to get his chance to present his defense.
8:14 am
>> but what are the real chances he will take the stand? abc's linsey davis who has been at the courthouse all week has the story. >> reporter: just before prosecutors rested their sexual assault case against bill cosby, they attempted to use the comedian's own words against him. jurors heard from this 2006 deposition where cosby admitted that back in the 1970s, he was prepared to give women prescription narcotic drugs prior to sexual encounters. was it in your mind that you were going to use these quaalude force young women you wanted to have sex with, yes, he said. but in that same deposition, cosby denied giving hem to former temple employee andrea constand who claims he drugged then sexually assaulted her at his home in 2004. he says the encounter was consensual and the pills he gave her were benadryl so she could relax. >> cosby's entire defense is that he was in a romantic relationship with constand and that what happened on that night was consensual. he has to convince 12 jurors that constand, one, was not in
8:15 am
any way incapacitated and that, two, she consented to the sexual activity that took place that night. >> reporter: in a deposition, cosby recounted a conversation with constand's mother who was furious. i apologized to this woman, but my apology was, my god, i'm in trouble saying he was afraid she thought of him as a dirty old man. on monday, the defense will start making its case. >> bill cosby cannot testify under any circumstances. he would be cross-examined in a way that would probably destroy his credibility. >> reporter: at some point next week cosby's wife of 53 years camille cosby is expected to show her support and show up at court. linsey davis, abc news, norristown, pennsylvania. >> our thanks to linsey for that reporting. an incredible story. we will continue to follow. a lot of other news and as always we kick it over to dr. ron claiborne. good morning, sir. >> hey. >> good morning, doctor. >> good morning. just out of surgery and here on to the set. good morning, everyone. we're going to begin in london where overnight a 28-year-old
8:16 am
man was arrested in connection with the london bridge terror investigation. now we're also seeing the first images of the weapons used in those attacks. police recovering three 12-inch knives with pink blades. investigators also revealing they found multiple gas bombs in the back of the van that was used to plow into the crowd on that bridge. six other men remain in police custody in connection with that attack. in minnesota, a police officer charged in a fatal shooting during a traffic stop last summer took the stand on friday telling a court that he pulled the trigger because he thought he was going to die saying, quote, i was scared to death. officer jeronimo yanez is charged with manslaughter in the death of 32-year-old philando castile who admitted to the officer that he had a gun in his car. television host bill maher made his return to tv friday night, exactly one week after coming under fire for using a racial slur. maher saying, quote, i did a bad thing. >> it wasn't said in malice. it wasn't -- if it brought back pain to people -- >> right. >> then i -- that's why apologize freely and i reiterate
8:17 am
it tonight. >> and later in the show maher's guest ice cube called what maher said a mistake, a teachable moment for all. the new york state attorney general's office says it's investigating the eric trump foundation for possible misappropriation of donations. a new report from "forbes" magazine sparked the investigation which is looking into allegations that the charity overcharged donors for use of trump properties then redonated some of that money to trump-friendly charities. take a look at this. fiery crash in southern florida. a tractor trailer carrying an airport luggage carousel was exploding on interstate 75. police saying the truck hit the guardrail causing the fuel tavpg to rupture and explode. the driver in critical condition with burns to 40% of his body. finally one atlanta braves fan found out the hard way never challenge the freeze. check this out. fans have been competing in a competition where they're given a 200-foot head start against a masked sprinter.
8:18 am
you see him there. this guy almost won. >> oh, no. >> he celebrated prematurely. it cost him. looking over his shoulder there. dugout there, the players having a laugh. his team, however, look at that. >> what! >> you'll remember the old satchel paige saying, never look back because you don't know what is going to be gaining on you. this guy could have learned a lesson. >> how much of a start are they given? >> 200 feet. >> that's incredible. >> that's incredible. >> he's fast. >> you could beat him. >> oh, absolutely. >> yeah. >> you are lightning mcqueen. >> lightning quick. >> he was the freeze.check it o, this inflow has winds cooking 80 miles per hour and down the road in rugby, 100-mile an hour wind gusts. a little bit of damage with trees down there, but certainly about video. we have heat building across the plains here, thunderstorms maybe across the minnesota today, but temperatures in the 90s today

8:20 am
talking about the weather, yeah, exactly, well, this story is getting a lot of us talking. a young soccer player is getting big support from her team. they claimed that they were disqualified from a semifinals game in nebraska last weekend because 8-year-old mili hernandez looked like a boy. the tournament's director saying the team was disqualified but because of allegations of player sharing and incorrect paperwork, not because of her appearance but her teammates are showing their solidarity and they're also getting a lot of support from some top players. a soccer team taking a stand on and off the field. >> for mili. >> girl power. >> this is for mili. >> reporter: 8-year-old mili hernandez and her entire team disqualified from a tournament. >> my brother, he said, it's only because the looks, like when they look at me, they think i'm a boy but i'm really not. >> reporter: in a remarkable show of unity, mili's teammates lined thumb week to get their hair chopped off. >> everybody cut their hair for
8:21 am
me. >> reporter: mili is receiving support throughout the soccer world. olympic gold medalist abby wambach sending her this message. >> you can do anything you want to do, and you can be anything you want to be. and guess what, you can look like whatever you need to look like to do it. >> reporter: some of mili's teammates cutting off more than 12 inches. >> when i woke up i was like, all this is going to be gone today. >> it's going to be weird. i used to see them when their hair was long, but it's going to be short. >> well, no matter what the reason was the team was disqualified. there's no denying the team's spirit but again, this tournament director claims it has nothing to do with the way she looked. in fact, he hadn't even seen the girl and that he has grandkids. he would not want this to happen to them but he had to abide by those rules and, again, player sharing allegations. >> great teammates, though. >> certainly hope it had nothing to do with that. appreciate it. coming up on "gma" on this saturday morning, take a look at this video of a midair collision between hot air balloons. how this happened and
