7:02 am
>> right in the middle of his thanksgiving table. >> a lot to be thankful for. he traveled all through the night. millions traveling today. live on the roads at the airports and train stations on what you expect all across the country. first though, we want to get right to that breaking news. rescue crews searching for survivors after that navy plane crashed on its way to an aircraft carrier in the pacific ocean. this morning, good news at least eight people have been found alive. so let's go right to our senior national correspondent matt gutman for the latest. good morning, matt. >> reporter: hey. good morning, robin. incredibly, the navy is saying that the eight personnel recovered are in good condition, but there is no word about the other three on that plane which typically ferries supplies and people to carriers. now, that giant naval exercise between the u.s. and japan has turned into a very real search and rescue operation. the japanese navy is also assisting. now the incident happened about 500 miles off the japanese
7:03 am
island of okinawa, and is already being investigated according to the navy. it's the third possibly deadly incident involving the u.s. seventh fleet in just the past six months, robin. >> we're thinking of those three still missing. all right, matt, thank you very much. >> we are, robin. now to president trump breaking his silence to back alabama senate candidate roy moore. the president who's faced more than a dozen allegations of sexual assault and harassment dismissed the accusations against moore and attacked his democratic rival. our senior white house correspondent, cecilia vega, has all the latest. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: good morning to you. 12 days after the roy moore allegations first surfaced, president trump is finally weighing in and he is saying essentially that he would rather see roy moore, an accused child molester, win this senate seat than a democrat. overnight, roy moore went on tv in alabama to issue a full-throated denial. >> i didn't have any wrongful relationships, any -- engage in any sexual misconduct with an underage woman. >> reporter: the former judge
7:04 am
going after his accusers, saying he is the one who has been hurt. >> it's very hurtful. not only do my family, but to my reputation because this is something that's -- you just don't do. >> reporter: this as his campaign for senate celebrates a big boost from the white house. >> we don't believe these women. but we're not going to talk about that. we're going to talk about helping donald trump making america great again. >> should roy moore resign, mr. president? >> reporter: after days of dodging questions, the president finally broke his silence coming to roy moore's defense. >> what is your message to women, sir, during this pivotal moment in our country where we're talking about sexual misconduct? you've had your own allegations against you. what do you say to women? >> let me just tell you, roy moore denies it. that's all i can say. he denies it and, by the way, he totally denies it. >> reporter: and attacking moore's democratic opponent, doug jones. >> we don't need a liberal person in there, a democrat, jones, i've looked at his record. it's terrible on crime.
7:05 am
>> reporter: now the president was also asked if he would campaign for roy moore. he left open that possibility, george. he said he would get back to us on that one next week. >> yeah, and, cecilia on sunday mark short the president's assistant was telling us that the fact that the president wasn't campaigning for moore was a sign he wasn't questioning the women's accounts. very sharp evolution in the white house story over the last week. >> reporter: exactly. a real evolution on this. you know for days the white house party line has been this should be up to the alabama voters to decide. ivanka trump was one of the first to come forward and say she essentially believes roy moore's accusers, and then earlier this week, kellyanne conway basically said what the president said yesterday, she bashed the democrat in this race. in the end it seems the president sided with her and, of course, steve bannon, george, in sticking with roy moore. >> yeah, and sticking with his base. okay, cecilia vega, thanks very much. >> george, as president trump defends moore's sexual misconduct, allegations are rocking capitol hill. elder statesman of the house coming under scrutiny. senator al franken facing a
7:06 am
second accuser who spoke exclusively with abc news this morning. our chief national correspondent tom llamas. you sat down with her. just a short time ago. >> that's right, robin. we just wrapped up that interview moments ago. this mother of three tells me she's speak out publicly because she wanted the first accuser to be believed and let her know she's not alone. >> i was surprised and kind of wondering like did that really just happen? >> reporter: for the first time on camera, 33-year-old lindsay menz is detailing how she says senator al franken violated her when they took this photo together at the minnesota state fair. >> you're going to take a photo with senator franken. what happens? >> so my husband steps away from us to take the photo. i stand next to senator franken and he pulls me in towards him, and he moves his happened nd to butt. >> and you thought? >> i was shocked. >> reporter: in a statement franken, a democrat saying, i take thousands of photos at the state fair surrounded by hundreds of people. and i certainly don't remember taking this picture.
7:07 am
i feel badly that ms. menz came away from our interaction feeling disrespected. menz's story comes just days after radio he's leeann tweeden said franken forcibly kissed her and took this photo groping her while the two were working together on a uso tour. the minnesota senator has apologized to tweeden and said he welcomes an ethics investigation but says he is not resigning. >> last night -- >> reporter: this as an ethics investigation is under way into sexual harassment allegations against representative john conyers, the longest serving member of the house and a civil rights icon. buzzfeed reporting two different women accused the detroit congressman of sexual misconduct. in the first case conyers reached a settlement with a former employee who said he repeatedly asked for sexual favors. during one encounter the woman told "buzzfeed" conyers insisted she come to his hotel room and quote, just cuddle up with me and caress me before you go. buzzfeed reporting the case ended with a confidentiality agreement in exchange for a
7:08 am
settlement of more than $27,000. the payout money coming from conyers' congressional budget. in that case, conyers says he expressly and vehemently denied the allegations. the second case involving conyers' longtime scheduler. in court documents obtained by abc news, the woman accused representative conyers of lingering touches. repeatedly rubbing her shoulders and blowing kisses at her. but the former employee dropping her case after a judge rejected her request to seal the case to protect privacy. now, this morning the "detroit free press" is calling on conyers to resign. as for franken, 36 current and former cast and crew from "snl" have signed a letter supporting him. the statement starts with, what al did was stupid and foolish but they go on to write, after years of working with him, we would like to acknowledge that not one of us ever experienced any inappropriate behavior and mention our sincere appreciation that he treated each of us with the utmost respect and regard. >> going back to the second
7:09 am
accuser you spoke to moments ago, does she believe he should resign? >> well, she doesn't live in minnesota anymore so that's for the voters to decide. she said there was another politician at that same event. when she asked for a photo the politician said is it okay if i put my arm around you and checked with her husband. the complete opposite of al franken. >> quite a difference. >> thank you, tom. now to dramatic new video showing a north korean soldier defecting to south korea. you see him first driving then running for his life as bullets fly. he was hit but made it across the border alive and our chief global affairs anchor martha raddatz is in washington with the story. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, george. we've talked so much about threats from north korea's leaders, about its missiles and bombs that you can forget about the terrible conditions in which the people live. this north korean soldier was just 24 years old, but it's clear from the video this was a desperate dash to freedom. you see the north korean military jeep speeding past checkpoints, heading towards the border with south korea.
7:10 am
inside, the soldier bent on defecting as he gets closer to demilitarized zone, north korean soldiers reacting from their post scrambling towards the vehicle. once the jeep crashes into a ditch near the line that divides the two nations, he sets out on foot, running as the north korean guards begin shooting, dozens of rounds fired at the defector. even as he crosses that crucial line to freedom. >> at some point there the north korean soldiers see him and see what he's doing, and they start firing at him. multiple rounds and hitting him and he still survives enough to crawl to safety to get behind a wall. >> reporter: critically wounded, shot five or six times, heat signature from cameras show two south korean security forces crawling towards the defector to carry him out and evacuate him to a nearby medical center. >> here is this man who risked everything that was willing to take bullets to escape the repression, the murderous
7:11 am
repression of the kim jong-un regime and the north. >> reporter: in addition to the bullet wounds, he had severe parasitic infections, likely from water or food that was contaminated. doctors describe him as shy and in a bit of shock but say he is doing better, george. >> okay. thank goodness for that. martha raddatz, thanks very much. >> that video is chilling to see. >> very dramatic. and we're going to go now to the holiday travel rush. millions hitting the road and take a look at chicago. they're seeing some of the worst traffic so far. abc's alex perez is at a traffic control center just outside the city. alex, how is it looking out there? >> reporter: hey, good morning, michael. that's right. this is one of the traffic nerve centers in the chicago area. check it out. take a look at those screens behind me. officials are already keeping a close eye on the roads. now, as you mention, chicago has seen some of the worst traffic jams already, but today specifically in atlanta and houston, this afternoon and this evening, they will be dealing with some severe gridlock but it's not just there. across the country a record
7:12 am
45.5 million motorists getting on the roads. and that's the most we have seen since 2005. well, as far as the price of gas, the national average is up 18%, so that means that motorists will be paying some $800 million more this year compared to last year. michael? >> all right. thank you, alex. everybody is trying to get where they're trying to go, and that does not restrict itself to just car travel. trains and buses are being used this morning as well and abc's erielle reshef is at penn station here in new york and what can you expect, erielle? looks like it's starting to get crowded out there. >> reporter: yeah, michael. it's safe to say the thanksgiving travel rush is well under way. here at penn station definitely starting to pick up. more than 750,000 customers rode the rails to the thanksgiving feast last year. similar demand expected this year, and if you are hopping on the bus this holiday. you'll have company. more than 2 million people expected to use bus lines like greyhound between today and sunday up 10% from this time last year. if you're planning to use mass transportation this holiday,
7:13 am
you're going to want to get moving early. amtrak says the morning trains are usually the least crowded. but sunday is going to be a doozy no matter what time you travel and amtrak says last year the sunday after thanksgiving was the busiest travel day of the entire year. michael. >> all right, thank you, erielle. i'm not looking forward to that. >> well, you're not going to get relief in airports either. they are packed as well. this morning nearly 30 million passengers expected to fly. our chief transportation correspondent david kerley in charlotte, north carolina, with a behind-the-scenes look of the operations under way. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, george. this is one of the busiest days to fly. look at all these jets lined up here at charlotte. this is american airline's second busiest airport. they took us behind the scenes to see this crush and how they deal with it. american airlines taking us behind the scenes out on the flight line. there are plenty of deadlines and pressures to get jets turned around and people home. >> everything has to be done in
7:14 am
120 minutes otherwise we don't make our time. >> reporter: you may never see a mechanic like brett ebert who checks the equipment inside and outside your jet. the plane doesn't fly unless it's right. >> right. the plane doesn't fly unless it's right and we'll fix it if we can. >> reporter: if you look out your jet window and see a group of baggage handlers in a circle and wonder what's going on -- >> we'll start with our right arm behind our back. >> reporter: this is a stretching exercise before these handlers get your bags in the belly of the aircraft. does it make a difference for them? >> it does make a difference. nobody realizes how physical the jobs in the airport industry are. they are lifting over and over all day. >> reporter: so look out your window. maybe you see the baggage handlers stretching. they say it cuts down on injuries. george, the good news, fewer cancellations the last couple of days than an average day right now everything is moving smoothly in the air, george. >> and the weather is good behind you. david kerley, thanks very much. >> but as we always say pack a lot of patience. >> oh, yeah. this morning we're also

7:33 am
that was never my intent. i deeply apologize. disney, the parent company of abc news, saying we are committed to maintaining an environment in which all employees are respected and empowered to do their best work. we appreciate john's candor and sincere apology and fully support his sabbatical. this as veteran tv journalist charlie rose is facing more accusations of sexual misconduct. three cbs employees came forward tuesday after nearly a dozen women who worked for rose's interview show, "charlie rose," accused him of unwanted sexual advances including unwanted touching, groping and walking around naked. cbs fired the "cbs this morning" anchor and "60 minutes" contributor tuesday. pbs officially ended its relationship with the star after distributing his program for 26 years. rose defended himself in public on tuesday. >> do you want to say anything to those accusers, the people that's accusing you of all these wrongdoings? >> it's not wrongdoings. >> reporter: and the news this
7:34 am
morning from rashida jones who left the production of "toy story 4" is it was due to the studio's poor treatment of women and not directly related to any misconduct on lasseter's part. >> let's talk to dan abrams about this and start out with cbs and charlie rose dismissing him pretty quickly yesterday after the allegations came out. but much more about brand protection than any kind of legal liability. >> well, both. i don't think this was a close call in terms of whether you had to fire charlie rose. there were too many allegations. they were too specific and too disgusting. >> what is the legal liability? >> now you have allegations coming from cbs employees, talking about the time while he was at cbs, because, remember, charlie rose has both his production company which runs his talk show on pbs and then you have his time at cbs where he's the cbs employee. so if while he he's at cbs, cbs employees complain about his behavior, particularly if it's in the last three years which is the statute of limitations, then you have possible legal liable liability for cbs.
7:35 am
>> we see a different strategy from disney and john lasseter proactively taking this leave of absence with the support of the company. >> right. we don't know exactly what happened there, right? so there are a lot more questions there about what was the level of the conduct? i think it's really important as we discuss these to talk about what exactly happened in each case. in the law, every day we talk about first-degree, second-degree, third-degree, et cetera. and i think that it's important in the context of these allegations no the to just sort of lump everyone together and lump them all together and say there are all these allegations out there which is true but also then evaluate them case by case. >> harvey weinstein, you have allegations of sexual assault violence. >> harvey weinstein at least at first what we heard is probably the worst along with bill cosby of what we've heard from these high-profile people and then it goes from there. >> harassment then to bad behavior. >> to very bad behavior. this is not to minimize it, but to say in certain cases you have to decide, even just in terms of their jobs, is this worthy of
7:36 am
the professional death penalty? did this level of conduct rise to the point where this person shouldn't work again or certainly shouldn't work at this particular company and there are going to be tough calls where there was some kind of bad behavior, there was inappropriate behavior, but does that mean that person should never work again? charlie rose wasn't a close call based on in my view -- >> i wonder if it's not only the level of behavior but being in front of the camera and behind the camera. >> it could be part of that. how much scrutiny someone gets. but i think that in the end i hope it's based on the conduct itself, what they did, how often it happened. the same sort of evaluations we would do in the law when sentencing someone i think would apply here when talking about what should employers do. >> a lot of tough, complicated questions going forward. probably not the last one. >> no, it's not the last one. >> let's go over to robin. thank you, george. popular travel website tripadvisor is under fire accused of deleting negative hotel and restaurant reviews.
