7:21 am
relative's office in northwest d.c.. apparently that intern was paid for his or her time and the trip took place during the workday. also she had staff pick up her child at school because they she said schedule aid meeting for her during the pickup time and also incident where she left her 8-year-old child at the office unsupervised while attend aid meeting. she told investigators that relative was supposed to pick the child up in 30 minutes and was late because of car trouble and said she never asked anybody to look after her child and investigators found it would be realistic that people would expect they would have to pay attention to the child if there was no one else. there mayor bowser as you mentioned remained supportive of snowden. her communications director telling "fox5" deputy mayor has been helping vulnerable citizens help their potential. the mayor has full confidence in her ability to deliver for district residents. in thatom

7:23 am
any parent would do in order to get their child into an appropriate school. now, kia henderson up suspect tore general report found she acted improperly and city council did put more restrictions in place on the current chancellor so that that sort of preferential treatment cannot happen again. >> melanie alnwick, thanks so much, mel. >> mane tile more fallout involving michael flynn. in-depth look ahead at 7:30. >> roy moore coming out sw swinging against his accusers. we'll hear from him next 7:23 now the arctic national wildlife refuge.

7:30 am
weeks, alabama senate candidate roy moore speaking out against his accusers during a campaign event last night he connelled to deny sexual assault allegations against him calling the claims completely false and malicious. >> when young lady is abused and i've represented many victims in cases such as this i have not seen one who wants her picture posted on national tv especially in political advertisement. the truth is, this is not really odd at all. this is simply dirty politics. >> meanwhile the white house says president trump will not campaign for moore because he's too busy. his schedule just won't allow for it from the white house. special election is set for december 12th. >> in the meantime ivanka is in india she arrived overnight attend a global entrepreneur summit focuses on empowering women. the first daughter's visit raising questions about her own fashion line which is made by a mostly female work forc
7:31 am
india her brand refuses to dent fight factories that produce her goods or give details how the workers are treated or paid. lawyers for former national security adviser michael flynn reportedly met monday with members of the special prosecutor's team investigating russian interference in the 2016 election. >> the meeting has led to speculation about what is going on behind closed doors and what general flynn might be willing to negotiate or reveal in order to avoid legal troubles for himself and for his son. joining us former federal prosecutor jacob frankel now the chair. written extensive bowel michael flynn on his blog. first of all do we have a meeting has taken place. what's lead people to believe these meeting mike taking place. >> we only know that from the reports. but the fact is prior to any plea discussion particularly high profile case a lot of contact that goes on between the prosecutors and the defense counsel so this lee system natural and even someone such as
7:32 am
indicted realistically there are discussions that go on to see if a deal can be reached because it's always in the interest of both sides to try to work something out if that's pos possible. >> would in this case they might be holding out for that bigger fish or that higher profile person here and if so, who might not. >> we don't know who who that person is. it depends on the information that someone such as a michael flynn actually has. and part of this discussion that actually goes on interplay is do you have anything that's worthwhile? are you in a position to give us information that we can then use to prosecute as you describe it a bigger fish. that bigger fish can be anybody within whom -- with whom michael flynn met. obviously there's a real interest for michael flynn to protect his son. in other words for his son to avoid prosecution. but in terms of the who, a lot of it really depends on the contact. the other piece of that is, let's not forget the government has appending case with a
7:33 am
case against paul manafort. while there may have been some expectations the fact that michael flynn may be in a position to help them as a government witness as well against paul manafort. >> still michael flynn has not been charged at this point. you mentioned his son is involved in this as well. pitting family members against each other is nothing new. but with no charges what is the -- i guess the inn ken seive for michael flynn to cooperate at this point? >> to avoid being charged. really what this is all about. because typically what happened in this situation the prosecutor says, here's what -- here are the charges we are preparing to do you wanted to a deal with us or don't you wanted to deal? ultimately that's what it comes down to. the person has to make that decision. i mean in what i wrote, you can go back to the andy fastow, lee fastow enron going back 15 years but some of those prosecutors part of really part of this team as well so there are comparisons to be drawn, the fact is, those discussions actually took
7:34 am
and the discussions broke down. ultimately andy fastow and lee if as tow both were charged criminally and a plea deal was work out where lee plead guilty, end plead guilty. lee went to jail first and andy went to jail second for much longer sentence much there's no assurance that there will be a resolution but this is the process to figure out if there can be one. >> so in a situation like this, and you're former federal prosecutor, you've been in these situations before, if michael flynn is to cooperate, and this is all at this point speculation. if he is to cooperate would he do it more so as history plays out to safe himself or safe his son. >> the answer is part -- yes and yes. in other words, obviously he has a interest of saving his son but the government has to have an independent basis -- >> is there a strong case against his son, though? >> the short answer we don't know. >> what is his involvement here, because we've basically heard it's michael flynn and now -- >>er
7:35 am
because all we've ever heard is that michael flynn's son attend meeting in russia with the chi of staff at flynn's company. so it could tie into, you know, it could tie into the disclose insures that were made on the various forms that have to be filed witness government. fair registration, you know, security disclosure. i mean,. sf86a lot of possibilities as to what it may be. but the government has to have an independent ability to prosecute michael flynn's son in order to threaten the prosecution one of the things that flynn's lawyers will do is evaluate whether they think that threat of the prosecution of flynn's son is credible. but that's totally independent of whether there's a basis for prosecuting the elder michael flynn, and that, too, that's where michael flynn goes in and looks at what is my potential liability here? am i going to be better off cooperating? what is the deal that is being offered to me? in the mix of all this we always have to think about at what point in the process could we see
7:36 am
presidential pardon? >> going on hyped closed doors. >> it seems like we saw twist action with paul manafort and his sorry. michael flynn's name has been floating with this whole russian investigation. what don't we know in the couple of seconds. >> i know it's a were big question. what don't we know the public as far as sees swift action, who is still out there waiting for a decision. >> what we don't know criminal intent to be able to bring these cases to prosecutors have to be able to establish there was criminal intent involved. it's pretty -- it's pretty challenging when you're talking about these disclosure forms where people were active participants in meetings. and are not disclosing them. i think we've always seen that the risk to lot of individuals whether we talked about martha stewart, talk about others over the years, it really boils down to if they make a false statement, that's where the liability attaches and that's often where that leverage is. false
7:37 am
be the two touch points for a prosecutor. >> jacob always good to talk to you. get your insight as well. 7:00 arthritic. let's neck with tucker barnes. >> overnight lows back in the 20s and 3 30s outside the beltw. featuring another wonderful warmup with daytime lose in the low 60s. lots of sun soon to look forward to. 39 in washington. take a jacket or winter coat as most of the area here is waking to temperatures around the freezing mark earl. boston this morning 23 degrees. 39 in pittsburgh. 37 in columbus. so chilly temperatures out th there. we are featuring sunshine, dry conditions, quiet conditions, tranquil conditions and temperatures about 10 degrees above normal later today with i love this time of year bright sunshine. enjoy it. >> me, too. >> 63. >> few changes on the seven day. details in just a minute. erin? >> that forecast makes me happy. right now unfortunately westbound central avenue there's a water main break blocking two left lanes. sky fox should be there shortly if we have we'll pull i
7:38 am
