>> reporter: with just hours to go until a shutdown, a beaming democratic leader chuck schumer walked out of the west wing and returned to capitol hill. >> senator schumer, how was the meeting? >> we discussed all of the major outstanding issues. we made some progress. >> reporter: sources say the two new yorkers getting together to hash things out was the president's idea. trump called schumer this morning, inviting him to the white house. sitting down in the oval office, just the democratic senator, the republican president, and their chiefs of staff. >> unlike some of my republicans colleagues, i'm glad they're talking and i think president trump is a good dealmaker and maybe we'll get a deal. >> i hope that the president can talk some sense into senator schumer and the democrats. >> reporter: but for some republicans, the 90-minute sitdown set off alarm bells. "i'm terrified trump is going to hose us," one gop aide told abc. and tonight a presidential tweet -- "excellent preliminary meeting." >> we still have a good number of disagreements.
the discussions will continue. >> progress on what? what did you make progress on, senator schumer? >> reporter: senate republicans are pushing a short-term plan to keep the government up and running, hoping to get democrats on board, it would also extend the children's health insurance program for six years. >> this vote should be a no brainer. >> reporter: but democrats are demanding guaranteed protection for d.r.e.a.m.ers, those nearly 800,000 undocumented immigrants brought to the u.s. as children. >> where's the urgency when it comes to d.r.e.a.m.ers? there is an urgency. there's an urgency in their lives because of the uncertainty of tomorrow. >> reporter: with a shutdown in sight, frustration is growing. >> this is the greatest country in the world, but we do have some really stupid people representing it from time to time. >> reporter: so what would a shutdown mean for you? here's the bottom line -- it could cost the u.s. economy $38 million every hour. hundreds of thousands of federal employees would be furloughed without pay, and if a shutdown extends to february, members of
the military will see their paychecks delayed. >> our men and women in uniform are not bargaining chips. >> reporter: essential services would continue. you'll still get your mail. social security benefits would go out. tsa and air traffic control would keep working. but in the middle of this deadly flu epidemic, the cdc's program tracking the spread of the virus could be shut down. as for members of congress, the ones most directly responsible for a shutdown, their paychecks would keep coming. >> let's get to mary bruce live on the hill tonight. early in the day a shutdown was looking highly likely, then that unexpected meeting. some republicans nervous when they saw president trump inviting chuck schumer in at the oval office. where do things stand at this hour? >> reporter: david, there's still no deal but the mood has shifted. there are glimmers of hope that they may be moving towards a short-term funding deal if not by midnight tonight then perhaps some time over this weekend before all those federal workers
head back into the office on monday. david. >> another long night ahead for mary bruce. mary, thanks. president trump about to finish his first year in office and facing this test now, will the government remain open. i want to bring in our chief white house correspondent jonathan karl for one more question on this tonight because listen to what donald trump said in 2013 about a president's role in avoiding a government shutdown. >> you have to get everybody in a room, you have to be a leader. the president has to lead. you have to be nice and be angry and be wild and cajole and do all sorts of things, but you have to get a deal. >> jon, now it's on this president and this congress and president trump and chuck schumer, both new yorkers, they've known each other a long time and as mary bruce just reported, some republicans were worried about the two of them sitting down today. >> reporter: they sure do have a long history. in fact, schumer even made a guest appearance on "the apprentice" more than a decade ago where he said he always knew that donald trump was going to go places. my sense is that the president really does want to strike a deal here.
white house officials have even suggested to me it could be something as simple as protecting the d.r.e.a.m.ers in exchange for getting funding for his border wall. that is not a deal that would make conservatives happy, but as mary reported, republicans have been worried that the president would ultimately strike a deal with chuck schumer that they just don't like. >> jon, we'll be checking in later this evening. thanks. we're going to turn next to a searing moment in court today. a u.s. olympic star face-to-face with former gymnastics team dr. larry nassar, saying, quote, the tables have turned, larry. that's not all she said. here's abc's linsey davis. >> reporter: larry nassar on the stand today, sobbing. unhinged by testimony from this woman who said she only recently came to terms with her own abuse. >> wow. what have you done? >> reporter: one of more than 100 women and girls testifying at his sentencing. earlier, an unexpected
speaker -- olympic gold medalist aly raisman with a warning. >> the tables have turned, larry. we are here. we have our voices and we're not going anywhere. now, larry, it's your turn to listen to me. i'm no longer a victim, i'm a survivor. >> reporter: raisman showed the strength and grit she's known for in competition, this time to give her abuser, the former doctor for usa gymnastics and michigan state, a piece of her mind. >> the very person who sits here before us now, who perpetrated the worst epidemic of sexual abuse in the history of sports, this monster, was also the architect of policies and procedures that are supposed to protect athletes from sexual abuse for both usa gymnastics and the usoc. >> reporter: no tears, just determination and anger directed at nassar and usa gymnastics. >> an organization that i feel is rotting from the inside. >> reporter: just yesterday usa gymnastics parted ways with the famed training center run by
coaches bela and marta karolyi where several gymnasts say nassar abused them. >> they neglected to mention that they had athletes training there the day they released the statement. usa gymnastics, where is the honesty? where is the transparency? why must the manipulation continue? >> reporter: still, raisman says her love of the sport is stronger than the evil in nassar >> i am here to tell you that i will not rest until every last trace of your influence on this sport has been destroyed, like the cancer it is. >> powerful moments in court today. usa gymnastics is responding. >> they say the final camp will end on sunday. meanwhile the karolyis who run that training center have maintained all along they never had any knowledge of abuse, david. >> thank you, linsey. we turn to the 13 siblings allegedly held captive and tortured by their own parents
and right here for the first time the images from inside one of the homes where the family once lived and what they reveal. tonight our matt gutman with the doctors now treating the children, what we now know about their conditions. >> reporter: tonight new images of the squalid home the turpin family left in texas years ago, showing the stomach-turning interior, walls smeared with human filth, that slim-rimmed tub. images like these are part of a mountain of evidence california prosecutors are pouring through which they say could lead to even more charges against david and louise turpin. >> doesn't sound like punishment. it sounds like sadistic torture. >> reporter: the parents already facing life in prison if convicted, accused of starving and torturing their children. they pleaded not guilty. >> it feels from our perspective that we're looking into a pit and we don't know where the bottom is. >> reporter: their doctors say the siblings' physical condition is slowly improving but they suffered years of near total isolation. >> much of what you're doing now
is sort of teaching them social behavior. >> we are the first stage of their introduction to the outside world. >> reporter: they're now tended to by a hand-picked team that is touched by what they're seeing. >> they will hopefully go on in life and they'll have great lives. it would be nice to see that. >> reporter: david, hospital staff tell me that nearly every time they leave that ward, they weep. just over the past 24 hours, people have been dropping off the kinds of toys that those siblings have been deprived of for all those years, and in fact, donations are piling up including a number of support funds for those siblings now worth over $100,000. david. >> matt gutman, our thanks to you from california again tonight. matt, along with extraordinary access to the medical team, helping these children recover. a special edition of "20/20" later tonight on all this 10:00 p.m. eastern. i'll see you then. in the meantime, major developments in the investigation after the massacre in las vegas, the largest mass shooting in modern u.s. history.
we have never before seen images from inside that hotel room and what the girlfriend has now revealed. here's abc's clayton sandell tonight. >> reporter: tonight new images from inside a hotel room turned sniper's nest. a staggering number of rifles strewn on countertops, chairs, beds, the floor. hundreds of shell casings and a hammer next to glass from the shattered window where stephen paddock opened fire. targeting a crowded vegas music festival below, murdering 58 people, injuring more than 700. >> get down, get down! >> reporter: for more than three months, authorities have provided few details about the deadliest mass shooting in u.s. history. today the sheriff released a report he calls "preliminary." >> i've lost a lot of sleep over this. >> reporter: but after chasing nearly 2,000 leads since october, the gunman's motive is still a mystery. though police say he acted alone. >> he had lost a significant amount of his monetary wealth in close proximity to 1 october and that may have a driving factor associated with it.
>> reporter: the sheriff says he does not expect charges against paddock's girlfriend who had told investigators he had become distant and withdrawn over the last year and began buying more guns. the day before the shooting the report says the gunman twice drove from the mandalay bay to his home, returning with at least six suitcases. police use blow open his bullet-riddled hotel room door, paddock was already dead. >> he believed that we were in close proximity of engaging him and he decided to take his own life. >> reporter: tonight the sheriff says the fbi still has an ongoing case against someone connected to the shooting but he's not saying who that is or why. >> thank you. we turn to the deadly flu epidemic and new numbers from the cdc reveal what so many have suspected. this is the worst flu season in nearly a decade and tonight the 8-year-old girl who died just hours after arriving at the hospital. abc's steve osunsami is at the cdc in atlanta tonight.
>> reporter: the flu epidemic has come to this tonight -- using foggers to spray disinfectant on the walls. this san antonio day care is trying to fight the flu bug like the cockroach. >> if there's one kid in here with the flu virus and that kid sneezes or coughs, guess what? this entire environment is now contaminated. >> reporter: classes are cancelled for a week in this school district north of dallas after nearly a third of their kids came down with the flu. >> the flu is always severe but we have never seen it like this. >> reporter: this third grader in alabama died from the flu on the same night she was rushed to the hospital. she was just 8 years old. new numbers from the cdc show the flu is still spreading wildly, from 27 states reporting high activity last week to 32 this week. tonight more than 8% of all deaths in this country are from the flu and pneumonia, the highest we've seen this winter. >> we're having a lot of activity everywhere all at the same time. >> reporter: 27-year-old katherine gallagher was found
unconscious on her bathroom floor. she had visited an urgent care and was sent home to get some rest. >> if young people hear this, they will realize that this is not to be trifled with and that they're not invincible. >> reporter: a study out of the university of maryland shows that the flu virus can be spread without even sneezing or coughing. nearly 40% of sick college students they tested were spreading the flu by simply breathing. >> simply breathing, that's going to alarm a lot of people. steve osunsami live outside cdc in atlanta tonight, steve you were telling us that health officials are encouraging anyone with symptoms to get help right away because of how severe this year's flu is. >> reporter: that's right, david. the strain of this particular flu virus is the problem. the illness from it can get quite severe quickly and there are more deaths associated with this particular bug than any of the others. already across the country 30 children have died from the flu this season. david. >> steve, thanks for keeping us informed from the cdc all week.
