8:05 am
its most sophisticated rescue systems. and abc's stephanie ramos is on the story in our washington bureau. stephanie, good morning to you. >> reporter: dan and paula, good morning. it has been four days since the naval submarine "ara san juan" first went missing. while there's been no visible sign of the crew, it looks as though they may be trying to reach out for help. this morning, there are new signs of hope as authorities desperately search for 44 crew members on board a missing argentinian submarine. seen here, before it vanished. emergency signals believed to have come from the submarine have been detected. argentine officials say seven failed satellite calls were picked up. this, as one of the u.s. navy's most sophisticated underwater rescue systems travels to argentina to help look for the sub. >> the problem here, although the navy is sending its best rescue gear, if you don't know where the submarine is, you can't effect that rescue. >> reporter: one system can save up to six people at a time.
8:06 am
and reach a sunken submarine at depths of 850 feet. no one appears to know exactly where the submarine is. it's been missing since wednesday. the argentine navy says it lost contact with the decades old sub while it was on a routine trip from a base in ushuaia on the southern tip of the continue intercept to its home base. one theory is that a fire may have knocked out power, cutting off their communication system. this is not the first submarine to go missing. august 2000, the russian nuclear submarine "kursk" sank after an exer side, killing over 100 sailors. in 1968, the "uss scorpion" sank beneath the atlantic ocean with 99 crewmen. and two nuclear torpedos. why it went down is still unknown. with the u.s. navy's two
8:07 am
undersea rescue systems on the way to argentina to look for the submarine, everyone involved is hoping for a different and positive outcome. dan and paula? >> stephanie, thank you. let's bring in retired marine colonel steve ganyard. he's an abc news analyst. you saw him in stephanie's piece. we have more questions for you, in.ve. do you think these repord satellite communications could really be from the missing sub? to you, is this an optimistic sign? >> i don't know, dan. i'm a little bit suspect. when did they come in? right after the sub was reported missing? did they come in yesterday? if this submarine tried multiple times and tried different bases, did nobody pick up the phone? how could that be? in a lot of ways this reminds me of malaysian air flight 370. there was a lot of rumor, inknew when -- innuendo. and unfortunately, incompetence.
8:08 am
in a lot of ways, unfortunately, this rescue mission mirrors that. >> we're going on four days. realistically, how long could people survive on a submarine once it's been distressed or disabled underwater? >> that's a two-part idea. if it's underwer. this is what's called a diesel electric submarine. so it's an older design. the diesel engine recharges the batteries. they can only stay underwater with those batteries for about 36 hours. if that submarine is still underwater, there is not much hope left. >> if, though, the sub has surfaced. unquestionably, they'll deal with extreme weather conditions. if the sub has somehow surfaced, is it possible it hasn't been detected yet? >> it is possible. if they are on the surface, they would be quite uncomfortable, as you note, the weather is very bad. the seas are high. but they could survive. they have enough food and water. as long as they have oxygen, they can bob around and wait for a rescue. the p-8 airplanes that the u.s.
8:09 am
navy has sent have very sophisticated radars. they're designed to pick up submarines on the surface. with those p-8s in action, i think we have the best shot today to find the submarine, if it's on the surface. >> we're holding out hope that the 44 members of that crew will be found alive. steve, thank you for your analysis this morning. we want to move to the latest on the sexual misconduct allegations that are rocking the senate race in alabama. >> this weekend, faith leaders gathering in birmingham to condemn the republican candidate, roy moore. who, as you know, has been accused of having sexual misconduct with a minor. david wright is covering the story from the white house this morning. david, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, dan and paula. the outcome of this open senate seat smack in the middle of the bible belt matters to the white house. it comes at a time when institutions across the country are grappling with the abuse of the patriarchy. one liberal pastor is calling this contest a battle for the is
8:10 am
out of the nation. in alabama, plenty of religious conservatives still have faith in judge roy moore. even after at least eight women have accused him of inappropriate behavior. including allegations of sexual assault. most say they were teenagers at the time. moore vehemently denies he's guilty of any such thing. >> they're not only untrue, but they have no evidence to support them. >>eporter: a growing number of liberal preachers are calling the republican senate candidate out. more than 50 pastors have signed a letter declaring him unfit for office. >> what is happening right now in alabama matters for the soul of the nation. just like the march cross the edmund pettis bridge mattered. >> reporter: on saturday, the former head of the north carolina naacp, addressed an anti-moore rally in birmingham. >> he's been empowered by folks like steve bannon, and white nationalists and white supremacists.
8:11 am
>> reporter: moore's campaign is raising big bucks off the controversy. record reportedly collecting more donations since the scandal broke than in the six weeks since he won the primary. the white house is very interested in the race. they're keeping close tabs on it through intermediaries. steve bannon, the president's former chief strategist, is one of roy moore's biggest supporters. paula? >> in that race, the election just around the corner. the 12th of december. david, before we let you go, one more question. we learned that the president son don jr. had an encounter with a russian banker in may at an nra dinner. what can you tell us? >> reporter: we can confirm the meeting took place. they had a brief conversation at the dinner. went back to their separate tables. why this matters is that investigators are trying to piece together what contact high-level trump associates may have had with russians during the campaign.
8:12 am
this banker is someone that has been reported to be one of the people trying to set up a direct meeting between putin and trump. dan and paula? >> all right, david, thank you very much. >> let's bring inopoulos, who h week" later this morning. good morning. >> good morning, guys. >> let's talk about roy moore. the front page of "the birmingham news" says stand for decency, reject roy moore. it goes on to endorse the democratic rival. doug jones. so given all of the pressure roy moore is facing here, there's quite a lot of pressure, could he still pull out a win? >> well, alabama is still a very republican state. there's still a chance. roy moore's core supporters stand in defiance of the establishment. you're seeing the establishment speak out against roy moore there. you have the major newspapers. the republican leadership in the senate right now saying, they can't work with roy moore. the president is a bit of a question mark. he has said that roy moore should step aside if the
8:13 am
allegations are true. he and the white house have not come down one way or the other on if the allegations are true. seven different women have come forward now. even the attorney general says the allegations are credible. the president hasn't yet taken a stand on that right now. the latest polling, one poll shows doug jones, the democrat, does have a lead. but i think that's just one piece of the evidence. the election is still 3, 3 1/2 weeks away. anything can happen there. >> they seem to be getting a record number of donations since the scandal broke. the republicans desperately looking for the first legislative win of the year. the house passed the tax bill this week. they have passed the baton to the senate. you have susan collins on the show today. she could realistically kill the bill. what are the odds of passage? >> they can only lose two senators. senator collins says she has a lot of problems with the bill. she doesn't like that they have included the repeal of the obamacare mandate in the bill. she doesn't like the estate tax.
8:14 am
she doesn't like the fact that this could cause medicare cuts in the future. will that be enough for her to say no to the bill? that's one of the questions i'm going to ask her. she's not the only one with real questions out there right now. you have senator john mccain. senator bob corker both concerned about the process and the deficit. another senator, ron johnson, of wisconsin, says he doesn't like the way the tax cuts for small businesses are structured. you lose three senators, the bill doesn't go anywhere. one of the big, big problems. a couple of problems for the bill. as it stands is that it's tremendously unpopular. this would be the most unpopular tax bill ever put before the congress right now. a huge problem. number two would be, in their attempt to try to keep the deficit numbers down, they have made the corporate tax cuts permanent but the individual tax cuts temporary. that's drawing the fire of people like senator collins as well. weighed against that, republicans need a win. they need a win going into the midterms. there's a lot of pressure for the entire party to hold together. >> really high stakes here for everybody.
8:15 am
thank you, george. >> thanks, george. >> i want to remind everybody, george has a big show this morning. he'll speak with maine senator susan collins. he'll have more on the debate over sexual harassment now rocking washington. all coming up on "this week." right here on abc. >> thanks again, george. time to check in with ron claiborne. >> i'm wearing my glasses as an homage to you. >> well, thank you. i'm wearing minias an homage to you. >> dan? >> i pay homage to no one. we begin in pennsylvania. new kensington police are releasing a photo of a suspect wanted for killing a police officer friday night. police say 29-year-old rahmael holt shot officer brian shaw just outside of pittsburgh. they believe they have found the vehicle involved. police warn he is considered armed and dangerous.
