calling her a beautiful girl and signing it "love roy moore." >> mr. moore attacked me when i was a child. i did nothing to deserve this sexual attack. >> i can tell you without hesitation, this is absolutely false. i never did what she said i did. i don't even know the woman. >> reporter: more than 41 republican senators say he should step aside if the allegations are true. >> do you believe these allegations to be true? >> i believe the women, yes. >> we are looking at whether or not someone to mount a write-in campaign successfully. >> reporter: moore fired back, tweeting the person who should step aside is mitch mcconnell. he has failed conservatives and must be replaced. #drain the swamp. he promised to discredit his accusers. the gop says the date will not be moved. moore's name will be on the ballot and she will vote for him. >> if moore's elected next
mondays, his colleagues could choose to expel him with a two-thirds vote. then alabama's governor would name a replacement. and get this, attorney general jeff sessions' name has been floated as a possible appointee to his old seat. sources tell us that session isn't in favor of that. they claim sessions' return to the senate is unlikely. meanwhile, sessions has told senior justice department prosecutors to look into whether a special counsel should be appointed to look into donations to the clinton foundation and the sale of uranium to a russian company. he ordered prosecutors to look into that, ten days after the president said he was frustrated with sessions for not investigating democrats. sessions is sure to face questions about that order today when he testifies before congress. and now to stunning revelations about private twitter messages between donald trump jr. and wikileaks.
the group believed to have been used by russia to influence the election. the correspondence first reported by the "atlantic" newspaper started during the campaign and continued through this summer. in one instance, then candidate trump tweeted that wikileaks had incredible information only 15 minutes after wikileaks contacted his son. don jr. recently turned over the correspondence to congress. he tweeted screen shots of the messages himself saying here's the entire chain with my whopping three responses, which one of the congressional committee has chosen to selectively leak. how ironic. >> reporter: president trump is heading home after two weeks trying to strengthen ties with the pacific rim. he capped off his tour of asia with another summit in manila, saying he made many good friends, among them, controversial leader, rodrigo duterte. the president tweeted that his trip will lead to fair trade deals.
the president also said he'll be making a major statement when he returns to the white house. a huge rescue effort is under way in western iran after that devastating earthquake that killed hundreds of people. along the border with iraq. more than half the victims were in a single town. and the main hospital was damaged. ian pannell is in the middle east. >> reporter: a deadly earthquake and the desperate search for survivors. the quake struck near the iran/iraq border, striking terror and panic, people desperately fleeing a shopping mall. a local tv station was live when a guest said there's an earthquake here, i have to go outside. and watch this as a quake hits a dam. giant boulders rain down. more than 400 killed and over 7,000 injured, the deadliest quake in the world this year. people now desperate for aid, tens of thousands helpless without power or water. we got through to an aid worker in iran. he told me, people are scared and cold but so afraid of more quakes they're sleeping outdoors. and that iranian aid worker says
the temperatures are below zero. people are desperate for blankets and tents. and though some help's getting through, it's not near enough. ian pannell, abc news, london. senator rand paul is back at work. the kentucky republican returned to the capitol in time for two votes, although he's still in pain from six broken ribs. rand told the washington examiner there was no provocation for the attack at his home ten days ago. his neighbor allegedly hit him while he was mowing the lawn. rand says he has no idea why. and president trump is nominating a former pharmaceutical executive to head the cabinet department that regulates the drug industry. while alex azar was president of ee eli lilly, he was credited with raising prices. we have a major new health alert about high blood pressure. the american heart association
has revised the threshold downward from 140/90 to 130/80, just ten points above what for decades had been considered normal. now this revision will increase the number of american adults living with high blood pressure by 31 million, but does this mean millions more americans are in need of medication? >> no, not necessarily. it's estimated that that number will only go up by2%. so the key here is lifestyle modification, things like exercise and weight loss, losing 5% of your body weight. lowering salt intake and increasing potassium like salmon, and avocados. limiting alcohol consumption, no more than two drinks a day for men and one drink a day for women. this can bring down that number by an average of four to 11 points. and every point matters. >> if it's that easy -- this change is outlined in a new report by 21 experts who the american heart association says
do not have ties to the pharmaceutical industry. >> i love avocados, bananas and salmon. >> if it was that easy. >> can i just next on pafocus o that? all right, so swipe left, i still don't know quite the way it goes. >> swipe right, it's right. >> but we've found a creature in the animal kingdom who's more of an expert than i. >> the big guy seems to be telling the human to swipe left, go on to the next picture. >> next thing you know, he'll be asking for his own tinder account. >> i know. >> maybe they've already got it set up. >> she's cute. oh, nice. >> the louisville zoo just acquired another female ape. >> ah, so now he's going to have to do that on the dl. >> she might find it over his shoulder. what are you doing? what are you doing?
