7:02 am
your forecast, a hundred in fredericksburg, 99 washington and la play at that. that is weather back to you at the desk. thank you because of the heat the district is doing everything it can to make sure you stay cool. today and tomorrow, six public pools in dc will stay open later than usual giving people a great place to get relief. they will be open until 8:30 p.m. i can almost smell the chlorine and sun tan lotion. metro helping out too. relaxing its rules to help you stay cool. you can bring water on the trains and buses, but metro is saying if you do use containers that close tightly once the heat wave is over metro will go back to enforcing its no drinks or food policy. that has always been a thing with metro they want to keep the trains the stations clean i have walked down with my starbucks forgetting you can't do that and sir, throw that away. >> it is good they are going to let you have water.
7:03 am
>> next step will be bathing suits on the train. >> i would thing that wouldn't be a bad idea today. if it is feeling like 100, 102 with humidity outside the station i imagine in some of those stations it will feel even worse. meanwhile our top story, the push to bring a vegas style casino to prince georges county, a move just announced last week looks very unlikely. >> a group assembled by governor o'malley could not reach a consensus. lauren demarco has been on the story all morning long and joins us live from national harbour with what is coming up next. good morning. >> reporter: good morning will. after much back and forth about bringing this casino here to the national harbour it does appear all bets are off. the work group formed by governor o'malley, failed to reach consensus meaning no special session on july 9th. you may remember the national harbour announced just last
7:04 am
week it reached an agreement with mgm resorts for a high end casino. again that is now put on hold, the group was also considering whether to allow table games like black jack at maryland's five existing casinos, that also, put on hold acarding to the washington post three -- according to the washington post, three members of the work group were concerned about a part of the plan allowing casino owners to keep a large share of slot proceeds, than currently under existing law. gambling plans in maryland, require full legislative and voter approval if there is no movement this year the next opportunity for the issue to be brought before voters would be 2014. now a spokesperson for governor o'malley said a special session is still not out of the question the governor does reserve the right to call a special session on this issue where any other important issues confronting the state, prince georges county executive said fortunately there is time for them to come to an
7:05 am
agreement and not leave 4,000 jobs over $200 million in additional revenue for the maryland revenue trust fund on the table. while it is possible for the governor to call a second special session it is unlikely, because that would mean they have to find new reason to believe they would come to a different result, than workers came to yesterday. that is the latest here at national harbour back to you in studio. >> thank you very much. the other big story the jerry sandusky child sex abuse trial. of course today, we will hear closing arguments then the case goes to jury this comes, as defense rests without calling sandusky to testify. live to craig boswell outside the courthouse in bellefonte pennsylvania. good morning. >> reporter: good morning will. things get under way in less than a couple hours. some people waiting in line outside the courthouse since 2:30 a.m.

7:08 am
president obama envoked executive privilege to withhold documents demanded by lawmaker. >> why would he claim executive privilege unless there was something very very important he felt should not be made known to this committee and possibly the public. >> the white house says the president is not blocking the documents relevant to fast and furious itself, but shielding conversations of advisors preparing a response to investigation and media enquiries. another political hot potato we are waiting for is the supreme court's ruling on president obama's signature health care law a decision could come down as early as today or any time in the next week or so. most laws major changes which are aimed at extending health insurance to more than 30 million americans have not taken effect including the requirement most people buy health insurance or pay a penalty. a judge found prince georges county councilmember guilty of wreckless driving.

7:31 am
story aired on tv this week. >> when i saw it was $2,000 it was just overwhelming. >> i have a 32-inch snapper commercial lawn mower to give bill for his lawn care business. there is no way he should give up something he worked so hard for. >> you heard it someone donating a lawn mower and the bid for the medal has now topped $3,000. shepherd has received dozens of other e-mails calls and donations. $3,000 is a lot of money when you don't have a job but hopefully he won't have to part with those medals. >> this is a problem many vets are having. getting back into the work force and all of that. >> it is a shame. i know mrs. obama is working to help them. 7:31 a.m., tucker barnes is here with the latest on our forecast. >> an easy one more heat, more humidity more unpleasantly high temperatures maybe 100 this afternoon you know, flirting with records, several hours here as we get into the mid-to
7:32 am
late afternoon yeah, amazing. >> temperatures are going to jump yesterday you pointed out, at 9:00 a.m. it went from 80 degrees to 89 degrees. >> yeah, jumped 9 degrees in one hour. >> now? >> i think 79. >> inching closer to 80. >> yeah. >> hey, yesterday's daytime highs were not one for the record books but awfully close. 98 regan national, dulles 94 and bwi marshall, 98. a record high today, first full day of summer 98 degrees and thinking is that we will be a degree or two warmer today than yesterday. likely, perhaps high or set a new record later this afternoon. one more day of this and then start to get relief by tomorrow currently 79 degrees regan national, 80 quantico, our overnight low, at regan national was 78 degrees. so warm conditions overnight as well and plenty humidity as well. 72 in frederick, 79 annapolis, 77 leonard town temperatures as
7:33 am
you mentioned just jumped between 9 and 10, yesterday morning they will do it again, see temperatures upper 80s low 90s your heat advisory continues right through the afternoon into the evening hours, in effect until 10 tonight combination of extreme temperatures near 100 and plenty of humidity, 105 plus around here later today a heat advisory remains in effect for the afternoon lots of water if you are working outdoors going out to golf, that kind of thing bring along plenty of water. high pressure keeping us nice and dry today and also hot that will continue to dominate our weather here for another 24 hours or so, now slipping towards our south and east winds shifted out of the south that is why i think our temperatures may be a degree or two warmer later today. out to the west towards chicago that cold front will bring sweet relief, later tomorrow, we will likely bring showers and perhaps a thunderstorm and behind the front, cooler and less humid air, here for the weekend, so just hang in there by saturday and sunday high
7:34 am
temperatures will only be, in the upper 80s with less humidity 99 today, sunshine near record heat, winds north and west 5 to 10 real quick tonight humid and warm, 79 the overnight low and of course the weekend forecast highs upper 80s less humidity this weekend after storms tomorrow. that's weather let's do traffic julie. all right on the roads this morning you are going to find we have our hands full, inbound suit land parkway the parkway is below speed from alabama avenue, headed inbound we find delays travelling inbound pennsylvania avenue, rolling down the hill from branch, no problems to report, inbound, slow going south dakota avenue, belatens burg road. -- belatens burg road. inner loop a slow ride from before university boulevard, heading into that construction zone. you will find slow traffic travelling inbound 66 still

7:36 am
full house, the main question here is, is there really something substantive going on here or is this politics? marty. >> well, first of all i think we all can agree number one fast and furious is a horrible thing that happened, shouldn't have happened, and i think democrats republicans, independents all want to know what happened. i don't think there is anybody on the committee who feels differently. the question is, this was started under the bush era, the bush u.s. attorney in phoenix, and as soon as holder came in saw what it was, he stopped it, and he has an ongoing investigation himself, and usually bob, you know in the past if congress -- if the justice department is looking at something from a criminal investigation, usually congress backs off a little bit and let's justice move. it is not as if justice is not doing something if they weren't, i think congress would
7:37 am
have a legitimate say, let's find out what it is. >> should have been able to work this out. >> well, i think the suspicion is, justice is not doing very much but justice is not pursuing this with any kind of vigorous application and that there is certainly some politics involved in it but in large part here this involves congresses institutional prerogative as well. if congress can have its subpoenas just refused, then, we've got a sad state of affairs in the country because the fact is, congress does have a right to look in and even if they can believe that something is going on that is going right in the department, if they want the information, they should be able to get it. >> the attorney general's office and administration are saying we are giving you the information what we don't want to give you is information documents, relating to the discussions about how to handle all of this, and in fact the
7:38 am
president has now served executive privilege. whenever you say that it is very dramatic sounding but not unheard of all president's use it. >> they do and the fact is, that what the congress wants to see is some of those issues about the discussions that went on and the question here is whether or not those discussions involved the white house usually when executive privilege is brought to bare it is because the president was directly involved in the decision. so, you know, the president promised transparency in his administration this is a case where that transparency is brought into question. >> but you look at it, you know, the fore fathers gave the president that authorities, just for the particular case if there is a political witch hunt going on, that the president, separation of powers can protect his prerogative. i think the most amazing thing is, holder met with isa tried to cut a deal and the deal was
7:39 am
we will show you the documents provided you don't go forward with the contempt proceeding. that seems to be a pretty good deal to make. >> but is it? essentially you are saying here is what you want to see but i don't want you to do anything about it. >> no, here is what you want to see in the hearings in terms of actually having a vote on contempt isn't necessary any more. >> but this is not unusual. when janet reno had the contempt citation brought against her, as well as newt for speaker but between the time that the committee voted the contempt citation and it went to the floor the justice department decided that discretion might be the better part of valour that is still an open -- >> this could still -- >> hopefully that will happen. seems absolutely silly, both parties are trying to figure out what happened. >> let me get to a different topic quickly a new ap jfk poll shows romney and obama are pretty much neck and neck right
7:40 am
now and most people are saying this is the result of the economy. if these numbers don't get better if the jobs numbers don't get better marty i will start with you is the president in trouble. >> well, i think today, in the election were held today, the answer is it would be a tight race, it could go either way polls today don't mean as much as september and october when people start to begin the look at what the candidates stand for. i heard you know the other day, guys were talking about you mow what is romney's position on immigration no body knows. what is romney's position on economy i will do a better job than obama. you better have a betterrance inner september and october than today. that is true but what you have to remember about national polls, california and new york weigh heavily on those polls obama will probably win those states big. for the polls to look at, are the swing states that are going to make the difference in the election and so on and there,
7:41 am
it is a very tough battle, we will continue to be well into the fall i think. >> bob walker marty russo enjoy the conversation. always do. come back soon appreciate it. will over to you. 7:41 a.m., coming up we have seen sinkholes swallow cars but for one florida woman it took her home video you don't want to miss straight ahead. a candy thief on the run. that thief may have butter fingers but it is reeses he is after. you won't believe how much he is accused of taking after the break

state football coach jerry sandusky he did not take the stand in his own defense joining us now to talk about this case, former federal prosecutor, university law professor, paul butler. sandusky not taking the stand everything though in general are just very calculated as i am sure you know. was this the right thing not to have him take is stand? >> this is a tough call the prosecution made a very effective case they presented eight witnesses all who more or less heard the same sordid story of abuse. if mr. sandusky has take on the stand he would have had to answer cross-examination are you saying accuser number one when he said what you did he was lying. number two, so forth, eight times that is a very difficult call, on the other hand, because the prosecution case has been so effective, defense has to do something all they
8:18 am
need is one or two jurors to get a hung jury. that is a victory for them maybe that would have helped with that juror who just wanted to hear him deny to them he did it. >> we will have to wait and see on that. earlier this week, we know bob costas did an interview with sandusky late last year the network -- there was some very interesting things observingly that came out -- obviously that came out, the network aired a clip that did not guilty air before this past -- not air before this past tuesday. >> it is entirely possible you could have helped young boy a while not objectionable taking advantage of boy bcd ande isn't that possible. >> you may thing that i don't know in terms of my relationship with so many many young people, i would guess that there are many young people who would come forward,
8:19 am
many more who would come forward and say my methods and what i had done for them made a very positive impact on their life and i didn't go around seeking out every young person for sexual needs that i have helped there are many that i didn't have -- i hardly had any contact with, who i have helped in many many ways. >> now obviously i mean -- that -- you look at it very potentially damaging there i haven't -- you know sought every young person out that i have helped that as far as we know that didn't come out until this week is there some reason the prosecution wouldn't have gotten that or brought that out in court? >> when you hear it, it is very damaging, one reason may be that they just didn't know about it, prosecutors are very
8:20 am
careful about subpoenaing information approximate journalists there is a lot of privileges and constitutional reasons while they are concerned about it and they may have felt they didn't need it. again they have eight victims who came in and said this is what happened to me and they have something else you usually don't get in these cases they have eyewitnesses people who say well, i saw him in a shower with a boy or i heard this or that, so abegan they put on a very effective -- so again they put on a very effective case >> you mentioned someone who said they saw the acts occurs, one of the only witnesses on the stand who was talking about that. but then there was also a friend that came out and said, well, that is not the story that he had told me before, you know, so did defense do a good job at all? how good of a job did they do trying to poke holes in the prosecutions case? >> so there are a couple stories defense is trying to tell one is that all of the witnesses were coached by the police the second is that they
8:21 am
are trying to make some money from this case they have some kind of financial incentive and the third is that mr. sandusky has this mental condition, which makes him flier they house but doesn't cause him -- flirtatious but doesn't cause him to abuse kids. prosecution today are you going to say all eight witnesses are lying. >> defense will say, you don't get convicted unless there is proof beyond a reasonable doubt, 95% certain. >> we should know here, shortly hopefully what that jury has to say. paul butler, with gw thank you so much for coming in. >> always a pleasure sarah. >> all right tony back over to you. >> thank you. more fall out at university of virginia appears some board members are ready to reinstate the school's ousted president. and holly is hanging out at the georgetown water front this
