just throws them up and not even trying like that and it goes in, one of those nights and if you're the cavs you're thinking to yourself, well, hopefully we can win at home next time. >> a lot of news to get to. we begin with a devastating volcano eruption, guatemala, it's called the volcano of fire near the popular tourist spot antigua, and injured hundreds. you see the pictures, ash over several cities in guatemala right now. want to go to whit johnson. he has all the latest. good morning, whit. >> reporter: george, good morning to you. a violent eruption of guatemala's fuego volcano has resulted in at least 25 deaths this morning, including three children. at least 300 others injured. a five-mile stream of hot lava exceeding 700 degrees flowing through towns there, black smoke and ash raining down everywhere in this catastrophic crisis. so far more than 3,000 people have been evacuated. but as you can see from this video, it's almost impossible to outrun the thick haze of ash clouds blanketing the area.
7:03 am
the volcano's about 25 miles southwest of guatemala's capital city, ash can cover a nine-mile radius causing extreme mudslides and rivers to overflow. this volcano's name means volcano of fire in spanish. in this video taken last year after an eruption, the lava illuminates just the sheer size of this volcano. this explosion is expected to impact nearly 2 million people. >> they're likely to find many more injured. also in hawaii, that other volcano emergency right now. you have residents trapped this morning. >> reporter: yeah, george, the hawaii civil defense service says that some residents were late moving out of the mandatory evacuation area near the kilauea volcano and are now stuck with no power, no cell reception or water. authorities are now planning to air lift people out if the lava spreads farther in the four weeks since the lava began flowing from kilauea, it's covered 5 1/2 miles. the danger of volcanic smog
7:04 am
known as vog continues to be a major factor. george? >> it is just devastating. whit, thanks very much. michael. okay, george. now to that dangerous weather that is coast to coast. flooding in the east and wildfires out west. take a look at flash flooding in the washington, d.c. area. the raging water rushing down those stairs. and a fallen tree split a house in two. abc's gio benitez is there on the scene with the very latest. good morning to you, gio. >> reporter: oh, michael. good morning. it's just incredible, isn't it? apparently this ground was so saturated here that this tree just fell right over. and we actually have a wide shot so you can see how massive this tree actually is. you can see right through the house. it split it down the middle. that is actually the owner's bedroom right there. he left right before this thing bantatinso tv. sousincredible, thankful, that they were not hurt. they were out of the house and out of harm's way at least but, boy, this was just one of the many issues we saw across this country.
7:05 am
overnight, a terrifying flight and urgent emergency landing after hard-hitting hail smashed the nose of this american airlines plane in el paso, texas -- >> we have virtually no forward visibility. >> reporter: -- and cracked the cockpit's windshield. >> it started hailing and you could just hear it on the plane. and the plane just dropped. it was so scary like people started screaming. >> reporter: the 130 passengers on board clapping once they made it safely to the ground. this as nearby in arkansas this airport hangar at delta regional ripped apart. 100-mile-per-hour winds tore through the area and in austin, 60-mile-per-hour winds overturning this trailer, several inside having to be rescued. meanwhile out east, a weekend washout. onit, ng the scene outside our doho steps. and in d.c. that massive tree splitting this home in half. >> felt like an earthquake.

7:07 am
>> we know you will, thank you. now to that breaking headline about facebook under fire this morning over a new report about the company sharing your information with apple, microsoft and more. our chief business correspondent rebecca jarvis is here with the details. a lot of people want to know this morning, rebecca. >> reporter: absolutely, amy. this is more about privacy and questions around it surrounding facebook and according to "the new york times," before facebook was widely available on your smartphones, the social network formed data sharing partnerships with 60 device makers like apple, microsoft, amazon and samsung and those features let phone and tablet makers access users' personal information including things like relationship status, political leaning and upcoming events, and what's even more troubling here is that according to the report, facebook also let these companies access a user's friend's data without their
7:08 am
direct consent even after declaring it would no longer share that information with third parties. one consultant likened the whole thing to putting locks on the doors and then giving your friends the keys. >> that is fairly shocking. so what is facebook saying this morning about this new report? >> overnight facebook has responded, a vice president responding to the report in a blog post last night saying that the company has been winding down these partnerships since april and that these partners signed agreements that prevented people's facebook information from being used for any other purpose than to re-create facebook-like experiences. they also dispute the report that companies could access users' friends' information without their permission, and their argument here is this whole thing started before facebook was widely used. over a decade ago and they had to make these agreements with those partners in order to get it so that people could have it on their phones and tablets. >> wow, so they're denying the whole friends report. >> they're saying, yes, exactly, they're saying they never allowed a user's friend's data
7:09 am
to be shared with any of these partners. >> sure there's more to come. >> a l gy after the leak of a 20-page letter from trump's legal team to special counsel robert mueller declaring broad power to shut down investigations, avoid questions by prosecutors, and the president's top lawyer, rudy giuliani, even suggested to me the president has the power to pardon himself. our senior white house correspondent, cecilia vega, has all the latest. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: good morning to you. the president is now sounding off on this one. he just tweeted i have the absolute right to pardon myself. why would i do that when i have done nothing wrong? president trump's legal team floating the controversial idea just as the russia investigation is heating up. his personal attorney, rudy giuliani, telling george the president can pardon himself, but he won't. >> do you and the president's attorneys believe the president has the power to pardon himself? >> he's not, but he.
7:10 am
he has no intention of pardoning himself, but he probably does. it doesn't say he can't. >> reporter: giuliani then called the self-pardon unthinkable saying it would probably lead to immediate impeachment. but back in january, the president's legal team wrote a 20-page memo to special counsel robert mueller obtained by "the new york times" and abc news, arguing broad presidential powers saying the president could not have obstructed the investigation because, quote, by virtue of his position as the chief law enforcement officer, that would amount to him obstructing himself and that he could, if he wished, terminate the inquiry or even exercise his power to pardon if he so desired. the president's lawyers also strongly pushing back against a sit-down with mueller. despite the president's repeated assertions that he wants an in-person interview -- >> i would love to speak. i would love to. nobody wants to speak more than me. >> reporter: giuliani now says it's not looking likely. >> i have to just be honest with leaning toward not. >> reporter: one of the reasons changing stories, like the one about what really happened after that now infamous trump tower
7:11 am
meeting with don junior, jared kushner, paul manafort and a russian lawyer whom they were told had dirt on hillary clinton. initially, the white house denied the president himself dictated a misleading statement about why his son took that hceaiy dnta. indeepter: but in thr tte esfit >> this is the reason you don't let the president testify. if, you know -- our recollection keeps changing. >> reporter: so if mueller were to subpoena the president to testify, giuliani says they would fight that in court. he says the mueller team has everything it needs from documents to witnesses. they maintain, george, mueller does not need the president to wrap up this investigation. >> cecilia, on another front we'll see the first lady coming to a public event, the gold star families at the white house for the first time today in three weeks. >> yeah, george, so for now cameras are not expected to be inside this event, but we are told she will be attending this event for those families here at the white house. it's been 24 days since we've
7:12 am
laid eyes on the first lady. of course, she had that benign procedure for a benign kidney condition last month and didn't accompany the president to camp david this weekend. she is not going to the g7 this coming weekend or now the singapore summit next week. her office says she's been busy with meetings and planning for things like the upcoming fourth of july celebration. >> okay, cecilia. thanks very much. let's talk about the president's legal strategy now with our legal team, dan abrams and chris christie, and, dan, let me begin with you. mayor giuliani walked back several claims in that letter but the letter was a pretty stunning assertion of presidential power. >> that's right. we should be clear about that. the letter poses radical legal theories. number one, the idea that if the president were subpoenaed, which i don't think he will be, the fact that he could basically ignore the subpoena. that he wouldn't have to go to court to even fight it. and i think that almost no one in the legal community would agree with that. there are supreme court cases that are relevant to this, not directly on point, but relevant
7:13 am
which would certainly indicate that the president likely would have to testify. number two on the obstruction of justice, yes, it is true that the president likely won't be indicted as a sitting president for anything, but the notion that he simply can't obstruct justice, well, that was one of the articles of impeachment against richard nixon, against bill clinton. so, of course, a president can obstruct justice, doesn't mean he'd get charged as a sitting president. >> they went on to say he could shut down any investigation for any reason. and i guess the bottom line, chris, of this 20-page letter is don't hold your breath for an interview. >> no. this is what we've been saying all along. there's not going to be an interview. there can't be for a whole variety of reasons there shouldn't be so the president as much as he may think he wants to testify and meet with bob mueller he shouldn't. and i would say one other thing that, you know, what you are seeing now is a change in not only legal strategy, but in the quality of the legal team. that kind of letter indicates to you that the president was
7:14 am
operating with a "b" team of legal representatives before this, and now he has people who really understand, i think, much better what his liabilities are, and also what the opportunities are from both a legal and a public relations perspective to move this thing in his direction. >> the president himself yesterday on twitter opened up a new argument as well now saying he should have been told about the investigations both about this fbi informer and the fact that paul manafort, his campaign chairman was being investigated. >> as a candidate he is saying he should have been told, right? this idea that the fbi should start disclosing to a presidential candidate anyone who they're investigating? i mean, the bottom line is -- and i think governor christie can probably -- >> i see him shaking his head. >> i'm sure he can tell you that people probably warned him against manafort and warned him about issues with manafort having nothing to do about knowing about the fbi investigation. >> i did this for seven years. george, as you know, as u.s. attorney. i don't care what you're running for. we're not telling you. we're not a private investigation firm to help you with vetting your people who you employ in your campaign.
7:15 am
the fact is that the reason we operate that way is because in the justice department we're supposed to keep those things secret. we're legally bound to keep them secret unless and until we have some type of charges to announce and people want it that way because you don't want every rumor and investigation that's run down by the justice department out there in public. >> finally, dan, we also saw yesterday the president's team finally admitted he actually dictated that trump tower statement. even though they never corrected the record in public. >> well, and had repeatedly said publicly that it wasn't dictated. this wasn't a sort of gray area. they said he wasn't involved. i mean, jay sekulow told you he wasn't involved in this, and now they are not only saying he was. they are saying he dictated it. >> two different things quickly. you see what happens privately with the lawyers hanging lanterns on the problems created by misstatement s that come from the white house at times. >> thank you both. dan, you'll be back later to talk about another president abe lincoln in your new book "lincoln's last trial." let's go to michael. >> thank you so much. it may be the last trial of
7:16 am
lincoln, but it could be the last stand for the cleveland cavaliers. the finals last night, the warriors are two wins away from taking home the title for the second straight season and that's come after steph curry set that nba finals record with nine three-pointers. abc's t.j. holmes is in oakland and, t.j., steph was in mvp form last night. >> reporter: stra, he put on a show, and he was putting up shots that you and i wouldn't even try in the backyard during a game of horse. once again cavs/warriors gave us something we've never seen before in nba history. >> draymond green. >> reporter: the golden state warriors were back to championship form against the cleveland cavaliers in game two of the nba finals. >> curry back in the corner. nice little fake. sets up another. got it again. led by a barrage of shots from the outside. >>s up for tee curry way outside. another three. steph curry has set a finals record. >> reporter: steph curry hit
7:17 am
nine three-pointers, a new record for an nba finals game. >> never woke up and was like let's get nine threes and get t e record. >> superior offense right now by steph curry. >> reporter: warrior fans greeted cleveland cavalier, j.r. smith, with a standing ovation. after his own coach said he didn't know the score at the end of game one which cost cleveland a chance at victory. >> i get the feeling j.r. didn't know they had the lead. he didn't know the score. >> reporter: and overnight, fans showed him no mercy, taunting him throughout the game with chants of mvp. >> james blows by, no help and finishes. >> reporter: lebron james had 29 for the cavs and was on the court for all but five minutes of the game. the series now moves back east and cleveland is hoping a change of scenery will put an end to their so far shaky finals run.
7:18 am
>> just because we're going home doesn't mean we can relax. they proved they can do it on someone else's floor and do it in any fashion. >> reporter: and this is not where they wanted to be, but the cavs have been here before, stra. the past two nba finals, they left oakland, down 2-0. we'll see you in cleveland on wednesday. >> thank you so much, t.j. look like you got yourself a nice little tan there, my friend. you can see game three of the nba finals wednesday at 9:00 p.m. eastern right here on abc. and now we'll go back to ginger with more flooding in the east. ginger? >> potomac river several spots seeing major or moderate flooding. you'll see more flooding this week. your local weather in 30 seconds. first though, your select cities brought to you by walgreens.

8:16 am
cowell also said and this is a huge pet peeve of mine, it irritates him when he's in a meeting and everyone is on their phones. no one is present but he admits he's probably been guilty of that as well. we have all been maybe guilty of that as well, but it's still hard when you are in a meeting and no one is paying attention. >> i've been very guilty of that. you see what the companies are doing to try to lilt it. if you're an individual you think you could be addicted to your phone, what can you do as an individual to limit your time as well? >> i think we all could be addicted to our phone, we're clearly at a tipping point and the irony is some of the best tools are actually apps that you can download on your phone so, for example, there's one that is called moment. moment will track four phone usage. you can set a limit on how much time you would like to use that phone and do this for your whole family. once you start using that over the limit it will send a bunch of push notifications so it's so annoying you want to put the phone down because there's all these notifications. another great app -- >> you or take that app off your
8:17 am
phone and keep going. >> exactly. >> i love that you said this, michael. because it's perfect because it leads me to the next app. it's called flipped. and flipped, you set a limit, it shuts your phone down and you cannot uninstall it. you cannot reboot your phone and undo it. you literally set that limit on the amount of time you're going to use your phone, and once it's up, phone is done. >> and it's called flipped? >> it's called flipd. >> yes and that's the flip phone if you want to make the little switch. >> the flip phone. all right. thank you so much, rebecca, and i will say if your phone shuts down, and you can't open it, you probably will flip out. amy, what you got? >> thanks so much. it's a "gma" health alert. a groundbreaking new study finding tens of thousands of women battling breast cancer can skip chemotherapy. our chief medical correspondent dr. jennifer ashton is here even we all know it is such a huge groundbreaking new study because chemo is probably some of the
8:18 am
most grueling treatments any woman could face. this is targeting a specific type of breast cancer patient but it affects a lot, tens of thousands of women. >> called a landmark trial. here it is right here hot off the presses from the new england journal of medicine. let's start with who. who is this important for? we're talking about women who have early stage breast cancer, the most common type, hormone receptor positive her2 negative without having spread to the lymph nodes. what it found they did a genetic test on the tumor, different than the brca blood test and they actually took, like, a fingerprint of the tumor and it actually gives you a score of 0 to 100. this is used to predict the risk of recurrence. if you're low you can safely say you don't need chemo. if you're high obviously chemotherapy has been shown to be beneficial. the key question is what to do with people in the intermediate range with a score of 11 to 25.
8:19 am
this is the majority of women, over 70%. >> i had a 23. that was my score as well but mine spread to my lymph nodes so chemotherapy is still an effective treatment option for some patients. >> we don't want people to hear this and say no chemo for any type of cancer. it did find a survival benefit and risk -- recurrence risk benefit in women under the age of 50 even if they were in the intermediate range, but we have to balance risk versus benefit. if you can spare people the negative side effects that chemo brings -- >> it's incredible. >> it's big. >> you mentioned cost. there was a financial cost of getting this test to get your score, right? >> this is widely available. the study was partially funded by the maker of one of these tests but there are several out there. it's widespread. almost always covered by insurance and medicare but it does come with a $3,000 price tag but, amy, this is the definition of precision medicine. it's targeted not just for you but for the type of tumor you have. >> it's pretty remarkable. >> this is the exciting news in the world of cancer. >> jen ashton, thanks as always.

8:43 am
project, he's written a fascinating new book called "lincoln's last trial: the murder case that propelled him to the presidency." dan, welcome back and the book is based, yeah. >> thank you. >> the book is based on a handwritten transcript of that murder trial from 1859 and it was found 130 years later looking a little bit like what -- >> like this here. >> there is a story about where this was found. >> this is the only transcript that exists of any case that lincoln ever argued and there it is in this sort of chewed up box found in the home that the great grandson of the defendant had lived in tied in a yellow bow and there you have a transcript with lincoln's own words as the lawyer in a very high-profile murder case and so we took that transcript which is sort of become a kind of footnote to history and told the whole story surrounding that very compelling and close murder case. >> why was it such a
8:44 am
high-profile murder case? >> well, because it was involved two neighbors in a community, a fight, one neighbor stabs the other and the community, of course, wanted justice as we see today very often in cases. people saying we want justice, the question was, well, wait a sec, did the victim bring this upon himself? he did definitely went after the defendant. the question is did the defendant have to pull out the knife and stab him? and we get lincoln cross-examining witnesses, we have lincoln making arguments, we've got lincoln in the courtroom. it's really the best view that has ever existed of lincoln as a lawyer. >> i see your passion. i know obviously you're a lawyer. you're here a lot of times for crime stories. you and i have done them for many, many years now but a history butch. i didn't know you were one. >> i was ever since i was a kid actually. you know, i won a contest once as a kid like some quiz thing and there were like choices like you get like electronics or something and, of course, i
8:45 am
picked a book on the presidents because for me that's just -- i was that kid. >> and now you've written one. >> this is why it was so exciting for me. >> it led to the presidency, how so? >> so, look, lincoln was not very well known. this happened nine months before he got the republican nomination. >> okay. >> and even then in 1859 he wasn't that well known nationally. and this case got him even more profile. he had everything to lose by taking it. remember, criminal defense attorneys are not that popular. right? i mean, you know, you think? and so he took a big risk by taking this case and it paid off for him and so we think it definitely helped propel him to the presidency. >> what an incredible fascinating story. everyone should go out and read dan's book, lick link. it com "lincoln's last trial." it comes out tomorrow. everyone in the audience is going home with a copy.
