7:02 am
robin is on a very special assignment in austria this morning. good morning, robin. >> you guys are green with envy. because i'm here. it is beautiful to be here for special olympics. world winter games. it is spectacular. in a word, the incredible athletes from all around the world competing here and did i mention the setting here. the majestic austrian alps. this is inspiring in so many ways and i'll share that with you throughout the morning. >> it looks gorgeous. can't wait to get back to that. first the latest from the white house on president trump's explosive claim that president obama ordered wiretapping of trump tower. the baseless allegation has now been debunked by both houses. the white house standing by the president's tweets. our jon carl had a contentious exchange with sean spicer. in the briefing room yesterday. he jones us for the details. jon, one of the most surreal white house briefings i have ever seen. >> reporter: i've certainly never seen anything like it,
7:03 am
george but the white house is digging in, even as top republicans have joined democrats in saying they have seen absolutely no evidence to justify the president's accusations. white house press secretary sean spicer insists the president will be proven right about the alleged wiretapping of trump tower. >> so, you think he's still going to be vindicated. >> i believe he will. >> reporter: it's getting harder and harder to find anybody who agrees. now the top democrat and top republican on the senate intelligence committee have issued a joint statement saying they've seen no proof to back up president trump's accusation that president obama tapped his phone. we've seen no indications, they said, that trump tower was the subject of surveillance by any element of the united states government either before or after election day 2016. speaker of the house paul ryan agrees. >> no such wiretap existed. we've cleared that up. that we have seen no evidence of that. >> reporter: the white house
7:04 am
says the president isn't backing down. the senate intelligence committee is saying point blank they have seen no indications of surveillance. >> where was your passion and concern when they said there was no connection to russia? where was it then? crickets from you guys. because at the end of the day -- >> so you say the president stands by his allegation that president obama wiretapped his tower. >> i'm making a point. the point is this. number one, it's interesting when evidence comes out and people who have been briefed on the russia connection comes out and say there was nothing they have seen that proves a connection, you choose not to cover that. >> i am asking you to respond to the senate intelligence committee. >> i'm trying to answer, jonathan. if you can calm down. >> reporter: that went on for nearly eight minutes straight. spicer reading from media reports and conservative commentary citing unconfirmed and anonymous sources alleging surveillance of trump tower or of trump associates. so, are you saying that the president still stands by his allegation that president obama ordered wiretapping or surveillance of trump tower
7:05 am
despite the fact that the senate intelligence committee says they see no indication that it happened? does the president still stand by his allegation. >> he stands by it but you're mischaracterizing what happened today. >> reporter: no. think say they saw no indication. i'm reading exactly from their statement. >> i understand that and at the same time they acknowledge that they have not been in contact with the department of justice. >> reporter: the top democrat on the senate intelligence committee said in a statement after spicer's briefing, that the leaders would not have made the statement they made without having been fully briefed by authorities. >> so, jon, the officials debunking it keep on piling up and they're doubling down standing by the tweets but also trying to slide off them at the same time. >> reporter: that's right. the tweets say point blank that president obama ordered wiretapping of trump's phones at trump tower. now they're saying, well, this could have been some form of surveillance short of wiretapping. maybe the president didn't do it himself. so that they are backing away from some of the specifics, by
7:06 am
the way, interesting side note here, george. the president will be holding a press conference today, a joint press conference with angela merkel, the chancellor of germany who is somebody as you remember who actually did have her phones tapped during the obama administration. >> yeah, we learned that from wikileaks. jon karl, thanks very much. the president, george, also in the middle of that battle to repeal and replace obamacare. the gop health care bill passing through a key house committee on thursday, but it still is facing an uphill fight against critics. our congressional correspondent mary bruce is tracking it all on capitol hill. mary, tell us what the next move is and can it survive. >> reporter: health and human services secretary tom price is headed to the hill as house republicans try to strategize the path forward. the white house and house speaker paul ryan now say they recognize the political reality here, that in order for this to have any hopes of passing they'll have to make changes now to satisfy those skeptical republicans. the question though is what changes are they willing to make. just how much wiggle room is
7:07 am
there? now, as they get ready to negotiate conservative republicans who oppose the bill are taking a page out of the president's book literally. they have been reading and studying up the art of the deal. perhaps hoping to use some of the president's own negotiating tactics. >> mary, the president's new budget proposal also getting mixed reviews even from many republicans. >> reporter: yeah, the president's budget is getting a bit of a chilly welcome here from many republicans who say they have serious concerns about the deep cuts to foreign aid and domestic spending. this budget would drastically scramble the nation's spending priorities and boost defense spending by a whopping $54 billion while making deep cuts to the environment, state department and many programs intended to help the poor but, amy, as always the president's budget here on capitol hill is just the beginning of negotiations. >> i'm sure it is. mary bruce, thank you very much. george. >> let's get more from our chief political analyst matthew dowd and martha raddatz and, matt, let me begin with you on these wiretapping claims. almost two weeks now, white house can't seem to shake the story at all. in some ways they don't want to, it appears.
7:08 am
>> no, well, happy st. patrick's day. erin go bragh. the white house today, it would be akin to saying leprechauns are real and there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. it just doesn't exist. the white house is their version right now of march madness, started march 4th when he put the tweets out saturday morning from mar-a-lago saying that the former president wiretapped him. there is no way this president is going to get out of this unscathed. >> and the question, martha raddatz, is, you know, on this huge question of trust and credibility what's it going to mean for the president in a real national security crisis? >> you can talk about leprechauns but believe me, people have to trust the president. they have to and in a national security crisis in some sort of catastrophe not only do people here have to trust the president, they have to trust his spokespeople and you have sean spicer with that exchange with jon karl. you have to believe what that press secretary says and when he
7:09 am
says things like that, again, it's a credibility problem and our allies, george, they are listening to this as well. can you believe the president when he talks? >> driving that point home the secretary of state is in asia this morning, raising for the first time the possibility of a preemptive strike against the north korean nuclear threat. >> exactly. rex tillerson said today the use of preemptive action is an option, it's threat from weapon programs reaches a level that we believe requires action. the policy of strategic patience has ended. those are very strong words. what would that mean? if north korea had a missile that we believed was a threat on the launchpad and believe they were perfecting it would we try to take it out. >> serious stuff and want to go back to matt. one of the things bedeviling the president's health care and budget plans, how hard the cuts are going to hit the people that voted for him the most. >> well, interestingly, george, we've seen this in the last 25 years and seen this rodeo before. we've watched -- every time a
7:10 am
president delves into health care it's like somebody who works in a medical lab. unless you're very protected you'll get sick. hillary clinton's hillary care hurt the president in the short term, president clinton. george, george -- barack obama's health care hurt him in the midterms and now president trump's -- his health care is likely to hurt them in the midterms. there is very little likelihood he will get out of this with either his plan or with his political capital intact. >> matthew dowd, martha raddatz, thanks very much. of course, much more on "this week" on sunday. all right, george, now to that massive five-alarm fire tearing through an apartment building in raleigh, north carolina, overnight, take a look. this is a live look at the flames right now, flames were raging there earlier this morning and abc's gloria riviera is in raleigh with all of the latest. good morning to you, gloria. >> reporter: good morning, amy. we have heard helicopters over head this morning as firefighters are on the scene at this five alarm fire. residents poured into the
7:11 am
streets. they were filled with heavy, heavy smoke. they were evacuating as this fire ripped through nearly an entire block. the blaze began shortly before 10:00 p.m. in a six-story apartment building. now, that building was under construction and officials say the raw materials on every floor, that untreated wood may have caused the fire to spread so fast, just 12 minutes in we saw that massive crane collapse. 70 firefighters initially responding to this. that number would nearly double. but just one was injured. a firefighter injured when falling glass punctured his chest. but he is going to be okay. and a bit of good news. nobody else was injured. amy. >> wow, that is truly remarkable. gloria, thank you for that. from fire to snow and ice, michael. >> to snow and ice and, you know, we'll talk about the new winter storm that's taking aim at the midwest right now. it is moving into the northeast and, ginger, you've been following it all. we said new. we're not over the old one yet. >> and spring just a couple of days away. starts monday.
7:12 am
how about we get another hit of snow. chicago started with it. now a cold rain, detroit gets into it tonight as we time it out and goes through the w and saturday through saturday night where it begins in the northeast, some of the heaviest hit areas, not a lot of snow but on sunday looks like it may wrap up in long island in the cape through boston, could get more. i think overall it's a one to three-inch snow still insult to injury and a lot of cold air behind it, michael and george and amy. >> we are going to move on to a tragic killing overnight. an emt with the new york fire department run over by her own ambulance after it was carjacked in the bronx and abc's gio benitez is here with the story. >> reporter: we don't usually hear about medics hurt on the job, certainly not killed so this came as a shock. we're told it happened too fast to save the medic. >> oh [ bleep ]. ambulance run over this guy. >> reporter: an fdny medic run over and killed by her own ambulance after it was carjacked in the streets of new york city. the ordeal began just after 7:00
7:13 am
p.m. when 44-year-old yadira arroyo, a 14-year veteran of the new york fire department was told by a pedestrian that a man was riding on the back of her ambulance. the mother of five and her partner monique williams got out of the vehicle to confront the man. he jumped past them into the driver's seat and began careening the ambulance through the city streets. >> they tried to get him out of the ambulance. he struck the one emt who was injured. >> reporter: a policeman nearby raced to help but it was too late for arroyo who was pinned under the vehicle. monique williams could be heard nearby screaming, my partner. >> my partner. >> reporter: police took jose gonzalez into custody and are charging him with murder. colleagues remembering arroyo as a hero this morning. and the mayor of new york said she started her day like any other. then a senseless act of violence took her life and as we said, a mother of five. she's leaving five children -- >> so sad. okay, gio, thanks.
7:14 am
>> and now to those terrifying moments on one of the world's most active volcanoes, italy's mt. etna erupting injuring tourists, journalists and a scientist and terry moran has the latest. >> reporter: this morning, mt. etna is quiet but as a group of tourists and bbc news crew discovered in an instant everything can change. molten rock and boulders shooting hundreds of feet into the air. the bbc crew dropping their camera to the ground, people fleeing as the superheated debris rains down and a dense cloud of steam engulfs the slope. as they're pelted with rocks from the eruption they scramble for the safety of the mountain vehicle, a window there shattered. ten people injured. three hospitalized. all were badly shaken. wow, that was a close call. we spoke with the bbc's rebecca morelle. >> suddenly there was one small
7:15 am
explosion sending a plume of white steam into the air and thought that seemed a bit strange then seconds later there was a second huge explosion sending boiling rocks, boulders, steam up into the air. >> reporter: so there was a moment when you thought you were going to die? >> yeah, a volcano with a huge explosion, you do think for that -- that might be it. >> reporter: it's one of the most active volcanoes erupting for the past two days, a spectacle visible from space. italian authorities have closed down that area of the mountain with good reason. you know, thousands of tourists go up mt. etna every year and usually it's a pretty cool vacation memory but not this time, george. >> boy, not, okay, terry, thanks very much. now to a much more serene mountain. robin is in the austrian alps. for the special olympics world winter games and robin, as you were saying, what a terrific spot for these inspiring games. >> it truly is, george, in fact, this is the second time that the world winter games have been
7:16 am
held here in austria and for good reason. we have 27, over 2700 athletes from all around the world competing from 100 different countries and they're competing in winter sports from alpine skiing with the finish line here, snowboarding, figure skating. it goes on and on and on and had a chance to hang out with some of the athletes earlier. make no mistake. they're serious about this. this is a competition for them but really much more than that and you keep in mind they overcame some great challenges, some great odds and they are so proud, they are so proud to be here at the world games and their families are too, george. >> robin, you've got a real history with the special olympics. such a unique event. >> it really is. i started back taking part when i was a cub reporter in mississippi and then worked on the connecticut special olympics on the board of directors there and have worked here with special olympics for many, many years and there's something different. i wish i could really explain it to you. it's about inclusion. it's about acceptance.
7:17 am
it's about celebrating different abilities, not disabilities but realizing we all have different abilities and when you see the volunteers and the coaches and the players, like we're going to dinner and from all different countries and everyone is screaming at each other supporting one another. you'll hear later on interest tim shriver, the ceo of special olympics and it was his dear mom, eunice kennedy shriver who started -- founded special olympics almost 50 years ago. it is a wonderful, wonderful organization as you know. >> we can see how excited you are. cannot wait to get back to you. >> we'll get back to robin in a little bit. she has a lot more ahead. now to march madness and take a break and look at this video of one of last night's biggest upsets. vanderbilt star matthew fisher-davis. he lost track of time. that was left in the game. he fouled a player from tournament sweetheart northwestern and after this foul, it led to two last-second free throws and those free throws sealed the game for northwestern and sent the wildcats into a wild celebration, of course, hit
7:18 am
those two free throws in crunch time and make your coach run through the gauntlet and doused with water because they're in college and probably underage. water. douse him with water and their most famous fan, julia louis-dreyfus getting emotional as their son is on that team and she's been following that journey the entire way. we've been following her and northwestern. >> so great. >> congratulations. >> tears of joy. >> yeah, tears of joy and we'll have much more on march madness coming up. and, you know, you got more weather. >> the weather is madness, ginger. it's madness. >> perfect march madness watching weather. so cold you don't want to do anything. look at this. the freeze warnings that extend all the way still this morning into north florida. charlotte, 27 the actual air temperature this morning. and you can see it there, columbia, south carolina, 31. this video that we have is actually from strawberries they are trying to insulate. so many farmers concerned this morning. we'll know a lot more as we go through the weekend. first your weekend getaways brought to you by walgreens.

toxicology reports back in order to zero in on a cause of death. those could take weeks. amy. >> all right, neal, thank you. let's bring in former dallas police chief and abc news contributor david brown for more on the story. chief brown, thanks for being with us. this is such a sad and disturbing case. there was no vehicle. these teens were found on the shoulder of the road in a remote area. does that tell you anything about what may have happen? >> really all the options of what may have happened is on the table. such a tragic event that police are going to be tight-lipped because they're going to have evidence if they were able to call it a homicide of homicidal violence so they want to keep that tight-lipped so when they do identify a suspect, the suspect doesn't create an alibi from the information that they've heard or seen on television or other sources. >> as investigators are going through the forensics of this we see them there on the crime scene.
7:34 am
was a targeted act of violence or was a targeted act of vice or just a random act of opportunity, unfortunately? how do they make that distinction? >> well, if you're listening closely to what the family and reporting has been, there's some cell phone evidence of texting, so they'll be going through their cell phones looking for evidence of who they might have met and what areas they might have been in, also, they will be looking for any kind of close captioned television or any type of video that might have shown them on walking through or who might have been next to them or vehicle license plates, so any type of evidence like that will piece together the story of what transpired prior to time of death once that's determined by the medical examiner. >> so many heartbroken families and so many concerned families within that community. we hope they get answers soon. chief brown, thanks for being with us today. >> thank you, amy. >> george. >> coming up, chilling never before seen broadcast of charles manson. you see it first on "gma."

7:49 am
he's compared his son to steph curry, he has said that he can beat charles barkley in one-on-one, he can beat michael jordan. back in november when i talked to him he guaranteed that ucla would win the national title. this is a guy again that's not going to tone it down. right now there's a lot of people in college basketball that can't really stand him. but then there's a lot of people that really enjoy him. i've never seen anybody like him. any parent in 20 years that i've been covering this sport. he's entertaining. you can't argue that. >> yeah, kind of fun to watch this morning but how about the two younger sons. both committed to ucla. how good are they? >> yeah, gelo and melo. one signed to ucl. the youngest a sophomore who had 92 points in a high school game earlier this year. i've seen them both play. the middle one is probably a four-year player at ucla. will be a solid player. now, lavar said all three will be one and done. meaning in college for one year and off to the nba.
7:50 am
ne has a chance, again, 92 points, can really shoot the basketball. but like lonzo has a funky form on his perimeter shot and they'll have to fix that at the next level in college and certainly in the nba if he makes it that far. >> jeff, thanks very much. get a kick out of gelo and melo. >> passively entertained. thank you. that was good. >> everybody thought richard williams was a little unorthodox the way he believed in serena and venus. maybe he's on to something. >> could be on to something. coming up, ginger has your forecast. when spring is coming. we'll get into that. when spring is coming. we'll get into that. best-selling brand? you're not going to make it. do you think you can make it? uhh... make it... every time. nice! going further to keep drivers moving freely.
