7:01 am
24 hours after forcing out the homeland security secretary. and now news that even more heads may roll at a department so crucial to our nation's safety. rescues overnight from dangerous flooding out west. a possible cyclone brewing, about to pummel the central u.s., and the states facing blizzard warnings this morning. terror suspect takedown. a 28-year-old inspired by isis accused of plotting a mass terror attack with a stolen u-haul. how officials caught him just in time. wendy williams setting the record straight about recent headlines, and this photo. what she's now saying about substance abuse and life inside that sober house. felicity huffman breaking her silence. now pleading guilty in that college admissions cheating scandal. her apology as the prosecutor tells the judge "the desperate housewives" star needs to go to jail. what a game, what a story for uva, complete redemption. >> what a difference a year
7:02 am
makes. last year, the first and only number one seed to get knocked out in the first round of the tournament, this year the champs. take a look at the celebrations in charlottesville. >> they're celebrating the thrilling game and it went into overtime when virginia overpowered texas tech, pulling away at the end with a solid win, and t.j. holmes was there for it all. he joins us now from minneapolis. good morning, t.j. >> reporter: good morning to you guys from the virginia team hotel. not sure how much sleep they got here at the hotel last night. who needs to sleep, guys, when your dreams come true before you even get into bed? the headline this morning is that virginia won the first championship in school history in an overtime classic, but that only scratches the surface of this story. we just witnessed last night one of the most unbelievable and an all-time sports comeback story. >> and virginia with the all-time turnaround title. >> reporter: the virginia cavaliers have pulled off a
7:03 am
redemption story for the ages, winning the national championship in an overtime thriller. just one year after the humiliation of being the first one seed to ever lose in the first round to a 16 seed, the cavaliers had to outlast a determined texas tech to claim the title. >> you need to go through what you went through last year to get here? >> yeah, absolutely. we said it all year, if you use adversity right, it will buy you a ticket to a place you couldn't have gone any other way. >> reporter: the game was a nail-biter. >> texas tech. >> reporter: going into overtime. but virginia eventually sealed an 85-77 victory to become which champions for the first time in school history. >> it goes from stunned in charlotte to redeemed in minneapolis. >> reporter: the team was stunned by last year's loss. players even received death
7:04 am
threats. kyle guy named most outstanding player, has spoken publicly the past year about his mental health struggles. you guys got death threats. you have been open about going through anxiety. you're standing here as a champion and the most outstanding player of this tournament. >> i'm so joyous and happy right now. at this moment in time, i'm anxiety free, and i'm so ecstatic right now. >> reporter: last year's loss served as motivation. >> it makes it so much more worth it. >> reporter: and overnight, the city of charlottesville erupted to celebrate their cavaliers. >> we just stayed disciplined. we do the little things and, you know, we're built for this. we knew the will to win wasn't enough. we had to do everything possible to win. we left it all out on the court. >> reporter: and remember that loss in the tournament last year is no doubt considered one of the most embarrassing upsets in college basketball history. to go through the year they have gone through, having to hear all that ridicule and to be back in the spot and win it all is truly unbelievable, and on the other side, of course, texas tech, not a lot of people picked them to
7:05 am
be in the game, and guys in tears, he said, i told them i love them. i told them i want to be in their lives when their kids are born, when they have their weddings and also want to be there to tell them not to go into coaching because of the stress of how this feels. >> great advice, but uva made up for last year's big loss. >> they sure did. >> they sure did. >> thank you, t.j. we move onto washington now, and the new shakeup at the white house. less than 24 hours after forcing out the secretary of home land security, president trump has pushed out the head of secret services, and jon karl is tracking it all. >> reporter: good morning, george. it looks like an all-out purge of the leadership ranks of the department of homeland security with the secretary gone, the director of the secret service gone, and possibly more on the way out. there is so much uncertainty at the department of the homeland security right now that ousted secretary kirstjen nielsen who said she was quitting immediately on sunday now said she will stick around for a few more days, but she made that
7:06 am
announcement at home. >> i share the president's goal of securing the border. other than that i'm going to do what i can in the next few days. >> reporter: nielsen heading out, the president also pushed aside the secret service director, randolph alles, with no reason given. the move came as a surprise. alles hastily writing a letter to agency employees claiming he wasn't fired, but was, quote, told weeks ago by the administration that transition in leadership should be expected across the department of homeland security. and there are still more firings expected. at least two more senior officials at the department of homeland security expected to go in the coming days. this after the departure of fema director brock long in february. the president's surprise announcement friday that he wanted his choice to head the immigration and customs enforcement agency to step aside. >> we want to go in a tougher direction.
7:07 am
>> reporter: the president is looking to go in a tougher direction, a federal judge in california has now blocked one of his tougher policies saying, a ruling that the united states can no longer force asylum seekers to wait on the mexican side of the border while their cases are being heard in the u.s. jon, when you look across the administration now, the number of officials serving without confirmation is stunning. >> reporter: it is stunning, george. take a look at this graphic, george. i count at least ten major positions within the trump administration that now do not have permanent leadership with temporary or acting leaders, and there does not seem to be much of a rush to put in permanent replacements. in fact, the president himself has said that he likes having acting heads of agencies. he appears to believe it gives him more flexibility. >> jon, thanks. as jon mentioned, the department of homeland security hit hardest by the latest moves. take a look at this. ten of the top positions at the department including the head of disaster assistance, immigration
7:08 am
and the border all vacant right now drawing sharp reaction. i want to bring in our senior congressional correspondent mary bruce. even the president's allies are speaking out on this. >> reporter: republicans are clearly alarmed by this chaos at dhs, and we are hearing from even some of the president's top allies. they are warning the president to not fire more top officials and saying the white house needs to be clear in what it wants to do on immigration. senator chuck grassley, the senior senate republican is making this personal plea, warning the white house not to fire the director of citizenship and immigration, and there is clearly no love lost from chairman grassley when it comes to steven miller, the white house adviser who is thought to be pushing many of these changes. grassley saying i think it would be hard for miller to demonstrate he has accomplished anything for the president. >> you are on capitol hill where william barr is expected to testify today. he's going to get tough questions today on the mueller report. >> reporter: the attorney
7:09 am
general facing questions about the mueller report. the chair woman addressing this issue accusing the attorney general of cherry picking the mueller report to draw conclusions favorable to the president. she said the four-page summary is more suspicious than impressive. democrats have questions about how the attorney general came to his conclusions. they want to ask about the report that the mueller team is frustrated with the attorney general for reportedly miss characterizing their george? >> mary bruce. thank you very much. >> robin? there are new developments in the security scare at mar-a-lago. the woman lying her way past two security checkpoints on monday. victor oquendo is there with the latest, and there were startling discoveries in her hotel room.
7:10 am
>> reporter: good morning. those details laid out in court are alarming. yujing zhang, when prosecutors searched her hotel room, they found a device used to detect hidden cameras, nine thumb drives, five simm cards and u.s. currency. she was arrested after telling security officials at the private club she was there to go to the swimming pool. investigators charged her with lying to secret service and entering a restricted space and claimed they found a thumb drive with malware. a secret service agent testified that when he plugged that device into his computer, it tried to install files. zhang's attorney says she made no direct misrepresentation at the club, and she's due back in court next week. robin? >> so many questions. thank you. michael? now to that wild spring weather. severe storms hit the southeast overnight, and now that new storm is taking shape in the
7:11 am
west and could turn into a spring blizzard. ginger tracking it all this morning. >> that's right. >> good morning, ginger. >> april and blizzard. those words are coming together for us this week, but we begin with the look at alabama. this was ef-1 tornado damage they had from yesterday morning. that blew through, and now we have more severe storms possible today during the day. florence, south carolina, fayetteville, north carolina, wilmington, down to augusta, georgia all in the severe form forecast area. let me bring you to the west coast though because this is the storm we're tracking now that has been flooding much of oregon. they're letting water out of the dams in some of the regions, faster than they did in 1996 which was a historic flood event for them, and the storm will make its way through the rockies, wrap up quickly, and people are talking about bomb cyclone. that means 24 drop in 24 hours. even if it doesn't make that level, we're talking 6 to 18 inches of snow. george, that comes with 30 to 55
7:12 am
mile per hour winds. >> thank you very much. to the alarming measles outbreak. 78 new cases just last week. the cdc has tracked 465 cases in 19 states so far this year. that's nearly a record. doctors warn that people with the virus can sparead it before they know they're in fepfectein. most of those sickened have not been vaccinated. health officials here in new york threatening to fine or close schools if they allow unvaccinated students to attend class. experts say the mmr vaccine is 99% effective. now to the takedown. a 28-year-old accused of plotting a mass murder outside of washington, and he was caught just in time. he's making his first court appearance today. chief justice correspondent pierre thomas is in washington with those details for us. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: robin, good morning. he's been charged with interstate transport of a stolen vehicle, but authorities say he has admitted to so much more of having chilling murderous intentions. my sources say it was the closest of calls where a van was
7:13 am
the weapon of choice. the deadly plan according to federal prosecutors, to use this stolen u haul van top commit mass murder. the target, the national harbor in maryland. the tourist area with restaurants and a ferris wheel, a place where families go. authorities catching the would-be terrorist in the nick of time. hours perhaps even minutes before he was set to plow his vehicle through a crowd full of people. >> this was not simply a person in a stolen vehicle, but posed a greater threat. >> reporter: according to the criminal complaint, 28-year-old rondell henry from maryland was inspired by isis, and apparently modelled his would-be suicide mission after the nice, france massacre in which an attacker used a cargo truck slaughtering 86 people and injuring hundreds more. i was just going to keep driving and driving and driving, henry allegedly told investigators. i wasn't going to stop. henry fueled he told authorities, by hatred for disbelievers.
7:14 am
police caught up with henry on the grounds of the national harbor the morning after he allegedly scouted the location. the fbi said he had hidden in a nearby boat overnight after parking the stolen van. apparently waiting for more people. henry is due in court this afternoon for a detention hearing where authorities will argue that he's an urgent threat and cannot be released. henry, authorities say, had no escape plan, intending to die while killing others for his cause. george? >> thank goodness they caught him. thank you very much. overseas, we're learning more about the deadly roadside bombing in afghanistan that killed four americans. this morning, mike pompeo condemning the attack. james longman has the latest. good morning, james. >> reporter: actually george we're now learning that three u.s. service members died. that makes it the deadliest attack on american forces in afghanistan this year. we understand a suicide bomber detonated a vehicle packed with explosives. it hit their convoy on a road
7:15 am
near bagram air base which is near kabul. three more u.s. service personnel were evacuated for treatment, and the taliban is claiming responsibility even as they continue talks with the u.s. on a peace deal. secretary of state mike pompeo overnight was tweeting, no cowardly act of terror will impede our efforts to achieve peace. this means seven service members have been killed in afghanistan this year. the administration is keen to bring home as many of the 14,000 or so u.s. troops that are stationed there as soon as possible, but ensuring a political future for a country ravaged by 17 years of war, that takes time. michael? >> oir our thoughts are with those families who are suffering right now. and now the race to find those kidnappers who held that american woman and her tour guide hostage in uganda as she prepares to finally head home. there are questions this morning about whether the kidnappers were paid the ransom, and who paid it. ian pannell is in uganda with the latest. good morning, ian. >> reporter: good morning. that's right, michael.
7:16 am
there is now an intense hunt now tabing place on both sides of this border now making progress, with you arrests now made. this morning ugandan police telling abc news they arrested eight suspects last night for the kidnapping of american tourist kimberly sue endicott and her guide now spreading across two countries. kimberly sue expected to head home after five days in the jungle. she and her driver abducted at gun point on a safari in uganda. >> the victim who had been held captive together with her guide, jean-paul mirenge, were released because first of all of the implicit threat of the use of force. >> reporter: president trump now weighing in, urging uganda to find the kidnappers of the american tourist and guide before people will feel safe in
7:17 am
going there. bring them to justice openly and quickly. she is a small business owner in california. one of her friends praying for her safe release for the last week, and when she heard the news she was free -- >> oh, god, i burst into tears. i'm still a little bit emotional about it because, you know, you just don't know -- when you hear kidnapping and you hear foreign country, you automatically go to that dark place. you think the worst. >> reporter: questions now about the ransom that was paid to get them out. uganda and american policy is don't encourage kidnappers. it's not just president trump tweeting. the president of uganda going online to encourage tourists that uganda is safe. that's why these arrests are so important, to bring tourists back to the country. guys? >> okay, ian. thanks very much. also this morning, prosecutors now calling for jail
7:18 am
time for felicity huffman as she pleads guilty in that college admission scandal. all the details ahead. and tv host wendy williams is trying to set the record straight after recent headlines over this photo. and the doctor at the center of that viral video on a united flight. he's speaking out for the first time. now to ginger who will remind us of anything but spring. >> yesterday, nearly 80 degrees in new york city. don't know if you noticed that, but just about 380 miles north of us, this was happening. new hampshire, that is snow flying for them. we have to look at what eventually could become a historic storm. the national weather service in minneapolis saying that in minnesota, parts of north dakota, we're talking about a foot, even up to two feet of april snow coming. it's coming mid week through the end of the week. yep, it's happening. your local weather in 30 seconds. first though, the tuesday trivia sponsored by amazon echo.

cheating scandal. felicity huffman has apologized and taken responsibility as she and 13 others appeared in court. will the parents get prison time? linsey davis here with that. good morning, linsey. >> reporter: good morning. prison time is definitely on the table. the charge carries a maximum 20-year prison sentence, but that being said in huffman's plea agreement, the prosecutor said they will recommend the low end of the sentencing guideline range which is four to ten months, and huffman says she's ready to accept the consequences of her actions. "desperate housewives" star felicity huffman one of the 14 defendants on monday who agreed to plead guilty to using bribery and mail fraud to get their children admitted into selective schools. in statement, the 56-year-old broke her silence about the ordeal saying, i want to apologize to the students who work hard every day to get into college and to their parents who make tremendous sacrifices to support their children and do so honestly. i'm in full acceptance of my
7:33 am
guilt and with deep regret and shame over what i have done, i accept full responsibility for my actions and will accept the consequences that stem from those actions. her husband, actor william h. macy who has not been charged seen here in los angeles monday. >> how's felicity doing? >> thanks for asking, but i can't tell you about that. >> i notice that she plead guilty today. how is she holding up? >> reporter: huffman has been mostly reclusive throughout the scandal. only recently photographed out with her younger daughter, georgia. it's older daughter sofia huffman admits she betrayed, paying $15,000 to have an s.a.t. proctor correct the answers on her exam giving her a 400-point increase on the exam. >> a generous amount will make sure our kids beat her out. >> how generous? >> $15,000. >> reporter: she writes, my daughter knew absolutely nothing about my actions. this transgression to her and
7:34 am
the public i will carry for the rest of my life. my desire to help my daughter is no excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty. last wednesday, huffman appeared before a federal judge in boston along with actress lori loughlin whose name is noticeably absent from the list of 13 parents and one coach who admitted their guilt on monday. loughlin and her husband are accused of shelling out $500,000 in bribes to help get their daughters into usc. they have yet to enter a plea. for those who have not yet entered a plea, april 11th looms large. that's the deadline for the grand jury to hand out additional charges. we're told those who enter guilty prior to that date will not face additional charges. george? >> linsey, thanks very much. let's bring in dan abrams on this. it's clear the plea deal is the path to least resistance. >> right, but the facts are different for each case. you're going to have people who were involved in $500,000 up to
7:35 am
$6 million who may say, look. the potential prison time is really significant here. >> it's a sliding scale depending on what you pay. >> exactly. people forget the amount of money is critical here. the reason felicity huffman is in much less trouble than lori loughlin is because it was $500,000 versus $15,000. felicity huffman will be able to argue that she should get no jail time. now whether she succeeds in that, we'll see. prosecutors will ask for time. the key argument, and it's interesting, will be, is it more or less than $15,000? under the federal sentencing guidelines, if it's $15,000 to $4,000, the guidelines would indicate based on the facts that it is four to ten months. if it's less than $15,000, zero to six. >> some people say wrong is wrong. why does it matter the amount? >> that's what fraud is, right? when you are talking about the crime of fraud in assessing -- there's no question she's guilty. she's going to get some sort of punishment. whether that punishment involves time behind bars is assessed as in every other case, when you
7:36 am
are talking about fraud by the amount of the fraud. >> could that indicate why lori loughlin has not pled guilty? $500,000 is a lot of prison time. maybe she feels she has to fight. >> i think that may be right. i mean, look. we'll see what happens with her and her husband, but when you are talking about that amount of money, the game is totally different. >> wow. >> that's why i'm not surprised to see felicity huffman in court now, and the prosecutor in the agreement leaving open her ability to argue that she should be considered below that $15,000 point and therefore argue she should get no time. >> if there is no time, does that lend itself to the argument of privilege which is what this is about in the first place? >> there would certainly be that argument. i would respond by saying i'm talking about the federal sentencing guidelines which apply to anybody based on these amounts and that prosecutors in a typical case of wire fraud would say if it's under $15,000
7:37 am
probably no prison time. >> especially a first. >> you don't want to be one of these defendants in this case. there is definitely a message that people want to send. >> mm-hmm. >> dan, thanks very much. we'll move on now to wendy williams returning to her talk show after taking the week off and responding to reports saying, she's frail, blaming what she calls a stigma around substance abuse. paula faris is here with that. good morning, paula. >> reporter: good morning to you, robin. wendy williams says one of the great things about having your own talk show is being able to defend yourself from rumors. on monday, she did just that slamming reports calling her frail and thin. [ applause ] wendy williams is firing back after this photo made rounds online showing her at a walmart riding a motorized scooter alongside headlines using words like frail and lonely. >> the headline was poor, lonely wendy needs a hug. then it said, she looked frail. you know i have the graves disease. there's pressure behind my eyes. i have a disease.

8:18 am
cost to the health care system, false positives. you know this well. it might show something that's not cancer that then might generate biopsies, but again, there is just -- there is not even consensus and agreement amongst organizations. this should be patient/physician centered decision-making and it should be individual. >> what do you say to people what's the harm in having a test? >> there are always harms, and risk versus benefit. there is cost and pain, potential risks involved there. begin, you have to weigh pros and cons. >> yes, you do. the other big headline. very vaccine for lymphoma? >> this is generating a lot of buzz in the world of oncology. this is experimental, but a one-two punch for a vaccine, not to prevent cancer, but prime the immune system and launches it on a seek and destroy mission

>> ain't no little red. henry, did you get her kicks? those will hurt you. >> i know. >> nicely done there. >> thank you. >> so good to see you. this all started. it's a brilliant, beautiful, powerful little book. it started with your commencement address last year, and it went wildly viral and i want to play a little bit of it. here it is. >> demand seats for women, people of color and marginalized people. call out each other's wins. claim the success of one woman as the collective success for all women. >> thank you. [ applause ] thank you for that. thank you for that. were you surprised by the reaction? >> i mean, look. i feel like especially last may, we live in a political climate with a lot of issues, a climate with actual issues, you know, we
8:32 am
have to start creating solutions to these problems, and this was, like, my attempt, and the beautiful thing is, like, that speech got turned into, like, this beautiful book that i'm so proud of, and, you know, my team and my publishers, i just -- i'm so excited the world gets to see it now. >> i am too. it's eight basic rules and the central theme here is for women not to be little red riding hood, but to be the wolf. >> yes. >> tell us what you mean by that. >> flipping the fairy tale on its head. little girls and boys are given messages when we're young and growing up of what it means to be a girl and a boy, and little red riding hood is one of those very common fairy tales we all hear, and for me, the most success that i have ever gotten is only when i venture off the path and took risks. so for me if i could tell my younger self anything, it would be, abby, you were never little
8:33 am
riding hood. you were always the wolf. [ applause ] >> i have to be honest with you. there was one that i was, like, huh, and i want you to explain this. you said, gratefulness can hold back women. >> yeah. >> what do you mean by that? >> i found myself on stage with kobe bryant and peyton manning. it was a beautiful moment and they were giving us this icon award and i felt this overwhelming sense of gratitude, and when we turned to walk off stage, i realized we were walking into very different retirements and anger started to bubble up towards the top because the only emotion that women oftentimes are allowed to feel is this idea of gratitude. so i try to tell women, you know, you can be grateful. both things can be true at the same time. you can be grateful and also demand what you want. so for me, that moment kind of led me down the path of figuring out what it was i wanted to do for the rest of my life. it's fight for equality, and not just in my sport, but for women
8:34 am
everywhere in every industry. >> this book is not just -- [ applause ] it's not just for women, this book. men as well. >> yeah. i make a point at the beginning of the book -- it's the note to the reader. it's one of the most important parts of this book and it's an invitation for men to be apart of this process and to be apart of this book. women for centuries have had to find themselves inside the work that has been written by men, and what better way to teach your daughters, to teach your sons about what it means to be a woman, than by reading content that's been created for women by women and also this is an invitation for men to step into understanding what women have been going through for time memori memorial. got a fan club here. >> you have a cheering section back there or what? >> my wife is back there, and her -- my team. [ applause ]
8:35 am
>> they are cheering you on back there. but talk about -- talk about -- for women who say, you know, we were blessed to be apart of a sports team, and the wonderful attributes that we learned, but you don't necessarily have to be on a sports team to understand the wolfpack meantality. how do you teach that? >> i was able to learn it because of the women's national team and this beautiful ecosystem. they were still learned skills. they were things that i witnessed and i saw other people do and try to impart that into my life. in creating your own wolfpack, i mean, listen. i have to work out by myself now, and, you know, it's harder when you are alone, to go out and also, like, i hate running. every single step. i do, but i have to do it. it's part of the process, and for me, like, it made me realize, like, i have to create my own -- my own wolfpack to make those kind of things that are essential in life, to feel less like suffering, right? that's why i wrote this book, so
8:36 am
that women everywhere have a place to go, something to look at, a playbook to carry with them throughout their day, and to give them the invitation to create the wolfpack, that i know i needed to be successful. >> you can do it in your church. you can do it in the pta. >> yes. >> there are several ways of doing it. >> it's not just the soccer players or just the athletes. >> soccer players, suing for gender equality. [ applause ] thought they were just -- discrimination. what do you say to your team members? >> here's the deal. the big argument that i hear about the women's national team lawsuit is that the men's team brings in more women -- more money. more money than the women's team, and at the end of the day, that's why the men's team should make more money. the truth is in 2015, the women's team brought in $6.6 million, and the men's team brought in only $2 million. so enough there. [ applause ] and that's just evidence that it's just a discrimination case,
8:37 am
and i want to back my teammates. i want to be able to say the things that i can say for them because i know it's different when you are inside it and you're a little bit worried about making the team and getting to the world cup. i'm proud of them, and they're pushing the game forward and they're pushing women and the experience of women everywhere. >> victory can be a victory for all of us. all right, abby. >> yes. yes.

8:42 am
so you go to work at, like, 6:30 a.m., and we start maybe call time. so that means i'm in the chair at 3:00 a.m. which means you're getting out of bed at 2:30 which is not a reasonable hour for a human being to be waking up. >> i agree. >> yeah, and so when i start your day at 3:00 a.m., and you'll wrap at, you know, whatever, 8:00 or 9:00 or something, and you get a solid five hours of sleep, it's going to wear on you after awhile. >> the snoring is coming. >> the snoring is coming. i would put on headphones and lay back and they do this thing where the mask takes the most time and they would have about four or five team just like little ants all over my face. >> put you to sleep. >> it's, like, a beautiful, you know, beautiful little facial. you wake up with the worst skin tone ever though. the worst chemical peel ever. >> i tell you what. we have a beautiful clip. >> oh, nice. >> of you in the movie. here's mr. harbour.

[ applause ] >> and you star opposite mila djokovic. does she help you stay in character? >> yes. she's lovely. i mean, she's a lovely human being, but she has just been doing this so long, and she's really smart. so i get a little nutty. i mean, i'm a half demon, so, you know, you have to go to a place of a little crazy, and so i would have these days where i would just, you know, you're hanging out with people on the set and i would just sort of drift into my crazy place, and we had a real nice connection where she would sort of see me go there and just kind of gather
8:44 am

8:47 am
just because he wasn't criminally indicted doesn't mean he met the standard of conduct for a candidate for president. >> what do you think we'll see from robert mueller? >> you'll see his family, his team did not say no any time they were offered information by the russians and eagerly asked the russians to keep bringing more and when they came into power, took actions to help the russians, reduced sanctions, pulled us out of syria, trashes a nato any chance he gets. that's what the russians wanted. >> robert mueller did not reach the conclusion that rose to the level of conspiracy. >> that's a different standard than what we would want for a president of the united states, and the russians are going to do this again in the 2020 election, and if we want to know how they did it, who they worked with, what we need to do as a government to protect against it, we need to see the full report. >> your parents -- both republicans? >> both of my brothers. >> they have the trump/pence
