7:06 am
with this facade of a marriage. she was devoted until the second episode and documentary which was devastating. they were hoping to at least get through the campaign through the election. but then it became untenable. >> deeply personal situation. it's a family situation. but she is also a top aide to hillary clinton. is there a political fallout that we can expect from this as well? >> of course there is. there are so many tensions involved. she is the most powerful figure political figure and personal figure in hillary clinton's circle. and there are people who fear her. there are people who respect and adore her. the inner circle certainly. there are criticisms this led to hillary clinton not getting other insights, not having press on the plane, not having press conferences they say those interviews are more controlled situations and the fact she needs to

7:11 am
rain that could lead to flash flooding. and we have tropical storm warnings on the outer banks of north carolina, and it's looking like it should produce rough surf and we could see one to three inches of rain and gusty winds and it's the storm in florida that could bring us the biggest flooding threat. the fbi is telling nbc news that russian hackers were behind two recent attempts. in one instant data from as many as 200,000 voter records were stolen in arizona, but in arizona the attempt was unsuccessful. the russian government may be trying to interfere with the u.s. presidential election. now to a dramatic rescue that was caught on camera, several motor errists jump into action to save a woman

car fully engulfed in flames. ca. a pileup on a highway in upstate new york. you can see a tractor-trailer plow into several vehicles. a white car on the left of your screen bursts into flames. several people rush over to try to pull the door open and free the driver. others attempt to put that fire out. eventually they break the passenger side window and pull the woman to safety. incredibly, she suffered only minor cuts and bruises. an investigation into the crash is now under way. some high drama in rhode island yesterday after a bucket truck overturned on a bridge leaving two workers dangling over the river below. look at that. the workers were in the bucket inspecting the bridge's underside when the truck fell over on its side. rescuers brought in another bucket truck and pulled workers to safety. there were no reports of any injuries and the cause of that accident is now under investigation. a public firestorm over the

skyrocketing price of epipens has led to mylan saying they will produce a generic version for half the price. tom costello is in washington with more on this. >> this may be both a pr move and financial move as mylan pharmaceuticals found itself in the bull's eye of controversy over what many believe is excessive company drug pricing over its epipen. mylan pharmaceuticals say it will offer a generic version. rather than 600, 300 for the generic. a 50% discount but not the common 90% discount with generics. the evidence, say critics, two moms in two different

up to a foot of rain in some areas. the otherould impact the carolina coast later this week. >> one of the best times of the year. the u.s. open kicked off in new york monday night with a performance from rock 'n' roll hall of famer fill collins and alison keys winning at 1:49 a.m. in the coming days here, novak djokovic and serena williams looking to dominate after disappointing showing at the olympics. when owen labrie went on trial for rape last year, the case attracted attention nationwide. by law, his accuser was shrouded in anonymity even while testifying. but today for the first time she's revealing her name and face and telling her story for the first time publicly. up until now this is how chessy
7:32 am
a voice disguised in court. >> i felt like i was frozen. >> this is the first time you've come out and said publicly what happened. >> yes. >> why did you want to do that? >> well, it's been two years now since the whole ordeal, and i feel ready to stand up and own what happened to me. i'm going to make sure that other girls, other boys, know that they can own it too and they don't have to be ashamed either. >> the story starts on the grounds of this beautiful campus in new hampshire. a school where her father, alex, had graduated and her older sister. it was just before graduation when she accepted a date with popular senior owen labrie. a date that she says went horribly wrong and ended with
7:33 am
trial ensued. she faced the defendant and testified for three days on the stand. >> although it was scary and although it was pretty difficult, i wouldn't be where i am today without having been able to speak up for myself during that time. >> what was it like to go through the court process? >> we had been prepared to just receive an apology. we had been prepared to just move forward with our lives and let them move forward with their lives. in the pursuit of justice, i would have done anything. >> one of the things that came out in the trial was that there were messages afterwards and they were friendly messages. >> that brings me to the effects of the crime itself, too, which not a lot of people talk about. a question that i was asked on the stand is, well, why were you so hazy during that period. i looked at the defense attorney
7:34 am
raped. i was just trying to go smoothly and not cause any waves. >> on one hand he was convicted of misdemeanor sexual assault, which means the jury believed that a sexual assault took place. on the other hand, there was a more serious charge that he was not convicted of. how did you feel about the verdict in this case? >> well, they said that they didn't believe that he did it knowingly. that frustrated me a lot. he definitely did do it knowingly. the fact that he was still able to pool the wool over a group of people's eyes bothered me a lot and just disgusted me in some way. >> what do you hope happens to him now? do you ever think about that? >> i don't. i hope he learns. i hope he gets help. that's all i
7:35 am
sort of process like this. if he doesn't learn, he'll do it to another woman. >> she was adamant about returning to st. paul school. what happened when you went back to school. >> everybody knew. none of my old friends that were boys would talk to me. they didn't even look me in the eyes. they were uncomfortable or what. i don't know. and nobody was talking about the issue in itself. they weren't trying to prevent it from happening to anyone else. >> chessy eventually left st. paul's and they filed a civil suit against the school saying it failed to meet its most basic obligation to protect children entrusted to its care. we talked with chessy's family as well. the school obviously denies the allegation in the lawsuit. some will say, oh, a lawsuit. is the family trying to get money. what's the real motive here? why not just let it go? >> we're
7:36 am
we kneel an obligation that this not happen to any future kids at the school. >> you think the campus would say we need to talk about what's happened. we didn't see that happening. and if ever there was a family to work with, it would have been our family. we loved the school. my husband had a great experience there. our oldest daughter had a great experience there. unfortunately it seems like the school's reputation became more important rather than supporting our daughter. >> st. paul says we catego categorically deny there ever existed at the school a culture of tradition of sexual assault. you have an idea of how you can take something terrible that happened to yound
7:37 am
something good for others. what are you hoping to accomplish? >> we have been talking a lot about a woman's bill of rights. i want other people's input. i want other people to feel empowered and just strong enough to be able to say i have the right to my body. i have the right to say no. and i wanted to bring this initiative that would be a hashtag i have the right too and have people contribute to it. >> your family has been right there with you all along and a lot of people don't have that. i can only imagine how helpful that's been. >> somebody has got my back. somebody is going to believe me. somebody is going to help me. even when i get panic attacks and i lock myself in my closet because i don't want my little sister to see me like that. she comes into my room sometimes and she'll come into
7:38 am
when i'm rocking on the floor and punching my legs trying to get myself calmed down, and she'll try to give me the biggest hug and say, chessy, you're okay. chessy, you're okay. and it just -- i can't imagine how scary it is for other people to have to do this alone and i don't want anybody else to be alone anymore. i don't. >> to find out more about chessy prout's new campaign for survivors and her hashtag i have the right too go to today.com. you'll find the full response from st. paul's school including a list of changes the school has made since this happened. she is a very determined young woman. >> she's in another state and another school and applying to college this fall. >> amazing interview. thank you very much. let's get a check of the weather let's get a check of the
