7:02 am
good morning, america. the question of the morning is that beluga whale a russian spy? >> shall we watch? watch again. take a look. there's the whale. so it had a harness. it had a mount for a camera and, of course, that is leading to this big mystery this morning, could it be used for spying? >> hmm. we'll discuss that coming up. we begin with disturbing new details about that alleged terror plot prevented in southern california. the second plot in the state in just days. authorities arresting and army veteran who they say was planning a major attack on places like santa monica's pier and in long beach where our chief national correspondent, matt gutman, is with the latest. >> reporter: good morning, robin. as you mentioned, this comes just days after that synagogue attack. now authorities say another young man, radicalized recently by those mosque attacks in new zealand. they say he plotted to blow up a white nationalist rally here at this park in long beach, and he wanted to blow up the santa
7:03 am
moni monica pier, even houses of worship. this army vet who fought against terrorism in afghanistan is being accused of planning multiple mass casualty attacks in california. >> the terror plot culminated with plans to bomb innocent people, causing dozens of deaths and serious injuries. >> reporter: according to the affidavit, mark steven domingo allegedly expressed support for violent jihad, searching for pressure cooker bombs to use at a white nationalist rally in long beach, california, this past weekend. officials say his planning only started last month online. he allegedly wrote, there must be retribution for the massacre of worshippers at a new zealand mosque, allegedly writing america needs another vegas event to give the country a taste of the terror they gladly spread all over the world. the department of justice alleging that domingo would swear allegiance to isis if it came to the u.s. >> our biggest fear is this was a rapid what we call radicalization immobilization to violence. >> reporter: the affidavit says the 26-year-old also told an
7:04 am
informant he wanted to target police officers, a military facility and the santa monica pier. he talked of a drive-by shooting with an ak-47-style rifle. the suspect's brother hinting domingo had been troubled and became hopeful when he had recently converted to islam. >> i don't want to assume a thing when someone joins a new religion. if anything, i thought it was a good thing. i thought maybe my brother finally found some sort of guidance in this world. >> reporter: domingo was also looking into targeting jews. that alleged plot coming to light just days after an attack left one dead and three wounded in the san diego synagogue. at an emotional funeral service monday, family members honored 60-year-old lori kaye. her daughter just feet away when her mother was shot. >> there are many forms of hatred that brought this man to do what he did, but his hatred does not shadow the love of my mother and the love of the community she was a part of. >> reporter: the suspect in that synagogue shooting is a
7:05 am
19-year-old nursing student. he's going to be arraigned later today. he faces charges of murder, attempted murder and arson, and if convicted, would spend the rest of his life behind bars. cecilia? >> leaving a community there reeling. okay, matt, thank you. we are now going to turn to that severe weather threat. 20 million americans in the storm zone this morning from texas to illinois on alert for flooding, possible tornadoes and even snow. ginger tracking it all. good morning, ginger. >> hey, good morning to you, cecilia. and good morning, everybody else. check this out, eureka, kansas. these pictures are always a precursor to tell you what is to come. nearly 70-mile-per-hour winds with, that and look at that. the hail, look at it covering the roads in wink, texas. the hail was actually as large as an egg, so egg-size or larger possible today in this region. we start with the flood alerts from, say, iowa city down through st. louis and kansas city. a quick look into oklahoma city and all the flood alerts for up to 5 inches of rain, but real quick if max could hit this, i need to share this enhanced risk area. oklahoma city, norman, we have enough of a low level jet and
7:06 am
what that means to you is we could see some twists in the atmosphere, wind shear which would make tornadoes. george. >> you'll keep an eye on it all day. ginger, thanks. the race for the white house and joe biden's campaign kickoff in the key state of pennsylvania. in his first rally he went straight at president trump. >> donald trump is only president -- is the only president who's decided not to represent the whole country. the president has his base. we need a president who works for all americans. and we can afford this. [ applause ] we can do this. >> that was in pittsburgh and, robin, right before the speech you had a chance to sit down with the vice president and his jill for their first interview. >> and as we all know, biden is facing so much as a front-runner for the democratic presidential nomination. he is facing tough questions about his nearly half century in public life. i began by asking him about anita hill who accused clarence thomas of sexual harassment when he was nominated for the supreme
7:07 am
court in 1991. biden presided over the confirmation hearing and has been criticized for how anita hill was treated. >> in moving forward and deciding to run, you reached out to anita hill. she has recently said when asked if she felt it was an apology that you had extended, she said, no. she said, i cannot be satisfied by simply saying i'm sorry for what happened to you. i will be satisfied when i know there is real change and real accountability and real purpose. >> i was grateful she took the call. i don't want to get into our private conversation, but the point is that, look, i was chairman of the committee. >> professor, do you swear to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth so help you god? >> i do. >> i believed her from the very beginning, but i was chairman. she did not get a fair hearing. she did not get treated well. that's my responsibility and i committed that i am determined to continue the fight to see to it that we basically change the culture in this country where a
7:08 am
woman is put in a position where she is disbelieved. as the committee chairman i take responsibility that she did not get treated well. i take responsibility for that. >> i hear what they're saying. i understand it and i'll be much more mindful. that's my responsibility. my responsibility and i'll meet it. >> you put out the video and it was a very powerful video right after these accusations from women who said that you made them feel uncomfortable. >> and i get it. i get it. >> but then shortly thereafter you're addressing a group, mainly men, and you make light of it. >> i just want you to know i had permission to hug lonnie. i had permission. >> and some people were wondering do you really get it? >> i really do. i've learned -- here's the deal. i've always thought that part of leadership, part of politics was listening to people, hearing them, making them feel comfortable, getting them -- letting them know i hear them
7:09 am
and i empathize with them. whenever they have a problem. it's my responsibility to be more sensitive to whether or not someone wants me to reassure them or wants to say hello or wants to show affection and support, and that's my responsibility. >> but, robin, i think what you don't realize is how many people approach joe. men and women looking for comfort, but going forward, i think he's going to have to judge, be a better judge of when people approach him, how he's going to react, that he maybe shouldn't approach them. >> how did you react when those first accusations were made? > you know, i've known joe for 44 years and one of the things i've always admired about him is the way he does connect with people, and in 44 years i -- you know, i hadn't heard negative comments, but now is a different time. women, men are in a different place now and so we have to
7:10 am
honor that. >> have you ever experienced a similar situation when a man made you feel uncomfortable by their actions or inappropriate language of any sort? has that ever happened to you? >> yes, it's happened to me. and i have come home and i've told joe about it. >> she'd never tell me the names, though. >> but, yes, i've felt that, you know, men were in my space. >> and how did you handle it? >> you know, it was -- i just sort of stepped aside. i didn't address it. like you said, i mean, things have changed. there was a time when women were afraid to speak out and i can remember specifically it was in a job interview and -- and, you know -- and so that's where we've moved from now if that same thing happened today i'd turn around and say what do you think you're doing? so i think it's totally different.
7:11 am
>> the president has a motto, make america great again. do you have one? >> make america moral again. make america return to the essence of who we are, the dignity of the country, the dignity and treating our people with dignity and this god awful deliberate division that's being taken in order to separate people to aggrandize his own power. >> he's making the differences between the two. pennsylvania, yesterday, iowa today, hitting all the stops. >> looks like they're going at this as a team. >> very much so. dr. biden will be here next week. she's written a book but very much by his side and the entire family. they said they got together with the grandkids, everyone. they're fully behind him running for a third time and will talk to him more about that in our next half hour. to the white house where president trump, his family and the trump organization is suing two of his longtime banks to prevent them from complying with demands from congress for trump records. it's a dramatic escalation in the showdown between trump and democrats in congress.
7:12 am
let's bring in our chief white house correspondent jon karl and, jon, this is a long shot for the president. >> reporter: it's certainly unusual, george, and democrats say the trump lawyers know full well that even if this lawsuit loses, it could succeed in delaying their investigation. so we have a statement, a joint statement from the chairs of the financial services and intelligence committee calling this a meritless lawsuit, another demonstration of the depths to which president trump will go to obstruct congress' constitutional investigative authority. george, these committees subpoenaed deutsche bank and capital one for a long list of records related to their business with the trump organization as part of an investigation into foreign influence in the trump organization. the trump legal team says that the subpoenas are, quote, unlawful and illegitimate, every citizen should be concerned about the sweeping lawless invasion of privacy and, george, -- >> one of the most wanted
7:13 am
men has resurfaced. it's the first video of al baghda baghdadi. he was vowing the terror group will keep fighting. this is despite being announced defeated by president trump. we have martha raddatz from washington. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning. there is a $25 million price tag on al baghdadi's head. he is the number one isis target in the world, but this morning, it appears he is alive even after the relentless pounding the u.s. and others have conducted on isis. in the 18-minute video from the images are taken, the man identified as al baghdadi acknowledges of the loss in syria, and he goes on praising the sri lanka attackers. the last time he was seen in public was five years ago in a mosul mosque.
7:14 am
this new tape clearly an effort to say isis can pose a serious threat anywhere in the world. robin? >> all right, martha. thank you. now to the frightening measles outbreak growing nationwide. the cdc just released new numbers. there are now a record 704 cases across 22 states, the most in 25 years. hundreds are quarantined at two universities in california and this morning adrienne bankert has the latest. >> reporter: this morning the measles outbreak in the u.s. is at a 25-year high. the cdc announcing it has identified more than 700 cases in 22 states since the beginning of this year, an increase of 78 cases in the last week alone. the cdc says 89% of those cases have been found in people who are not vaccinated. the cdc's director exclusively tells abc's dr. jen ashton he fears for the worst. >> you can anticipate that it won't be surprising if, unfortunately, we do see a death. >> reporter: last week in l.a. ucla and cal state los angeles
7:15 am
put more than 1,000 students and staff members in quarantine last week after possibly being exposed on campus. this morning more than 200 remain quarantined, meaning that the university's barred students and staff until the health department verifies they are vaccinated and virus-free. >> there are a few of my colleagues who are still under quarantine. i would imagine they are scared as well because an outbreak like this, it's easy -- it's easy to be worried over. >> reporter: and here at cal state, l.a., some students and staff have been quarantined up to three weeks waiting to get that all clear from doctors. the cdc says in a third of the cases we're seeing nationwide, they are children under the age of 5 years old. they are saying they want everyone to get into the doctor and get vaccinated as soon as possible. george, back to you. >> how many times can you say, you have got to get the vaccine. adrienne, thanks very much. we have breaking news. let's go to tom llamas. >> reporter: george, we're monitoring an escalating
7:16 am
situation out of venezuela. we saw footage of what sounds and looks like exchange of gunfire of military units and demonstrators. this is after the interim president posted this video standing with members of the military. nicolas maduro, the president, has called this a coup attempt. we have heard from the united states government, both national security adviser john bolton and mike pompeo have said they support guaido, and we'll continue to monitor it out of caracas. george? a man shot and killed a man in his own apartment. the officer said she mistakenly thought it was her apartment and 911 recordings from that night. marcus moore has the story. >> this is an off-duty officer. can i get -- i need ems. i'm in number -- >> you shot someone? >> yes, i thought it was my apartment. i'm [ bleep ]. >> reporter: that shaky voice is
7:17 am
former police officer amber guyger calling 911 after shooting 26-year-old botham jean inside his own home. >> we have help on the way. >> i know, but i'm -- i'm going to lose my job. i thought it was my apartment. >> reporter: 19 times she tells the dispatcher she thought john was in her i sat down with daryl washington, the attorney representing jean's family in the separate civil trial. he is hearing the tape for the first time. >> when i listen to that call, not one time did i hear amber guyger say she was in fear of her life. >> reporter: after days of protest authorities charged guyger with murder in jean's death. an arrest affidavit says jean disobeyed guyger's commands and she opened fire. we reached out to her attorneys for this recording, but they couldn't comment because this is under a gag order. they did say in a statement, quote, when we get to a fair
7:18 am
forum in front of 12 dispassionate citizens, we believe the law and evidence will show that amber guyger is intercep innocent. she is out on bond, and she's set for a court case in september. guys? >> okay, thanks, marcus. it's hard to hear those tapes. >> it really is. we are following a lot of other stories including the passing of john singleton. the youngest person nominated as director for "boyz n the hood" passed at just 51 years old from a stroke. we'll discuss risk factors for stroke when we come back. first, let's go to ginger. >> i have to show you these pictures because, yes, we are in late april, early may, but in ft. collins, colorado, they had averages of more than half a foot for a month but had a couple of fresh inches. look at the heavy rain coming in. it will be may. lance bass will be here and we'll be talking about rain for awhile. >> it's gonna be may. >> it's gonna be may. local forecast in just a bit but first tuesday trivia sponsored by samsung galaxy phone.

at coachella. looking forward to, that but first, our top headlines. a 26-year-old army vet is now in custody accused of plotting a terror attack in california. targeting the popular santa monica pier and long beach. the fbi stopped him just in time. also this morning, 20 million people bracing for severe weather. texas to illinois on alert for flooding. possible tornadoes and even snow. and we've been talking about this one all morning. take a look. this is the surprise at sea. a beluga whale seen approaching a ship in norway wearing a harness that said equipment, st. petersburg, and there was a mount for a camera that was on the whale, but the big question is, is this whale being used to spy for russia? the russians deny it but it's not a crazy question. the russians have trained dolphins for military purposes in the past. the norwegian fisherman who spotted this took all the gear off and sent it back out. >> friendly whale. >> the u.s. has done it as well. it's not that unusual. we move on and remember john singleton.
7:32 am
>> yes, we are. >> he's the youngest director ever nominated for an oscar for the groundbreaking ho hood." singleton died after suffering a stroke being remembered across hollywood, samuel l. jackson, ava duvernay and barbra streisand and so many more paying tribute, and we have a look back at his career, good morning, chris. >> it comes one month after luke perry died of a stroke at age 52. the film world is remembering how the career of john singleton opened doors for so many african-americans in hollywood while his movies opened eyes to realities that had long been ignored. >> reporter: this morning, hollywood is grieving the loss of writer/director jo john singleton. the 51-year-old passing away after suffering a stroke. >> either they don't know, don't show or don't care about what's going on in the hood. >> reporter: the trailblazing director was just 23 in 1991
7:33 am
when his debut film "boyz n the hood" sparked a national conversation. the cast that included cuba gooding jr. and regina king and in a star-making performance ice cube. singleton gave names, faces and deep emotion to the life and death struggles of the inner city. >> someone tries to make a film about black folks and they're not from the culture, how are they going to know what's up? >> reporter: he became the first african-american ever to be nominated for a best director academy award and the youngest person ever. >> any person who has passion about something and wants respect for whatever he or she does, it's nice to be getting depth. >> reporter: he paired janet jackson and tupac shakur for "poetic justice." he directed samuel l. jackson in a reboot of "shaft." and helmed "too fast too furious."
7:34 am
his success opened doors for his african-american casts and for black filmmakers who had been shut out of hollywood for so many years. tributes from across the industry pouring in on social media. samuel l. jackson tweeting in part, he blazed the trail for many young filmmakers, always remaining true to who he was and where he came from. from oscar winner jordan peele, john was a brave artist and true inspiration. his vision changed everything. john singleton died on monday after suffering a stroke at the age of 51. >> i'm not going to do anything i don't have my heart in. i have to do something i can look at ten years later and say, yes, i did that and i'm proud of it. >> just a massive loss. a statement from singleton's family stated he had quietly struggled with hyper tension adding more than 40% of african-american men and women have high blood pressure and urging all to please recognize the symptoms by going to
7:35 am
heart.org. >> chris, thanks very much. let's talk about that now with dr. carolyn brockington from mt. sinai hospital in new york. john singleton, 51. luke perry, 52. is it this common? >> we keep hearing about this over and over again and everybody is asking what's going on but really the truth is that stroke can occur at any age, right? we know the incidence increases as people get older but doesn't mean because you're young you can't have a stroke and emphasizes everybody should know their risk factors, the symptoms and what to do. >> well, let us know. what are the risk factors? what are the symptoms? what should we look for? >> a good question but a lot of risk factors we know. medical conditions that increases someone's increase of stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, smoking, inactivity, all those things are risk factors so it's time to partner with your doctor to figure out, hey, do i have any of these risk factors because really the good news is 80% of strokes we think can be prevented but you have to identify what your risk factor is and modify it appropriately.
7:36 am
if you have blood pressure, maybe have to diet and exercise and take medicine but if you control it you can reduce the chance of stroke and other conditions that happen from high blood pressure, heart disease, kidney disease, et cetera, it's just prevention, prevention is key. easier to deal with something before it happens than after. >> you just mentioned it. this is the bottom line. we can't say it enough. things you should be on the lookout for, if you are trying to reduce this risk. >> the thing about stroke is that it happens suddenly, right? it's not going to happen over weeks and months but seconds and minutes. >> you got to act fast. >> act fast is the key because we want people to realize if they have symptoms right away it's not time to figure this out on the phone and ask somebody but go to the emergency room right away. we know that time is brain. the longer the time the brain isn't getting enough blood flow, the more likely you'll have permanent injuries. if you come right away, people do well. >> remind me what the symptoms are. >> if you think of act fast, face, if your face is drooping.

>> if i could jump in here, the one thing i think that does differentiate you is his experience. i mean, he doesn't need any on the job training. he jumps right in. he's been vice president. so from day one, joe can take everything. >> you also have referred to yourself as an obama/biden democrat. people look at that and say, are you running for a third obama term? how would your presidency be substantially different? >> i'm really proud of serving with barack, with the president. but look. it's a new time, a new day. we're moving on to deal with the things that are in our grasp. i have worked my whole life. finishing the job for equality for women and in terms of what we're going to do about the environment, make bold, new steps forward. >> what would you say to the trump voter, the trump supporter who looks at the economy and sees very strong numbers? here in pennsylvania where the unemployment is at a record low of 3.9%.
7:43 am
>> well, what i'd say is did you get any benefit from the tax cut? have your wages really gone up? do you think like you deserve? do your employers treat you with any more respect and dignity than they did before? what's the story? ask these folks. ask the folks in this state. i know this state pretty well and the fact of the matter is they're not getting their fair share. the american people, the people who built this country are ordinary americans who have done extraordinary things from neighborhoods like we come from and this president does not show a great deal of respect and he continues to divide the country. for example, ask him how hard it is to get their kid to college. six in ten jobs require a high school degree. ask him how easy it is to afford it. why do we give a tax break to wall street but we don't give a tax break for -- significant tax break for day care or for child care? why don't we do that? >> is it hard to get that message across when people look at their bottom line, and it's better than it was two, four
7:44 am
years ago? >> but the bottom line for the vast majority of working class and middle class people is not significantly better. it's not significantly better. and, they know they're not being treated very well. this is about restoring the dignity, the dignity of work and it's not happening right now. >> the mueller report, what was your initial reaction to the findings? >> one, there was russian interference without any question, russian interference, number one. number two, there are elements of the report in the second fade of the report, about seven or eight things that are left undone. the congress is attempting to take that up, and what they should do, and they are doing is investigate that, and if, in fact, they block the investigation, they have no alternative to go to other than impeachment. in the meantime, is make sure he's not back as president of the united states of america. >> donald trump is very confident that should you win the nomination he can beat you
7:45 am
easily. are you as confident you can win the nomination and defeat him? >> whether or not i win the nomination is going to depend on the democrats and whether i beat donald trump is going to depend on the american people. but as i said, everyone knows who donald trump is. >> i'm confident. >> his wife jumping in like that but it's interesting his take on the economy because people look at it at face value and were there in pennsylvania. the unemployment rate is at an all time low there, and you heard his response. >> the campaign is going to turn on whether the democrats can make that case or whether president trump can effectively run on the economic record. >> and we'll hear from his wife too. >> and have much more on "nightline" with the interview. >> cue the music. you know what that means. what is our "play of the day"? >> great interview, robin. coming up, cue the music. you know what that means. what is our "play of the day"? and ask your doctor about biktarvy.
7:46 am
biktarvy is a complete one-pill, once-a-day treatment used for hiv in certain adults. it's not a cure, but with one small pill, biktarvy fights hiv with three different medicines to help you get to undetectable. that means the amount of virus is so low it can't be measured in lab tests. serious side effects can occur, including kidney problems, and kidney failure. rare, life-threatening side effects include a build-up of lactic acid and liver problems. do not take biktarvy if you take dofetilide or rifampin. tell your doctor about all the medicines and supplements you take, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or if you have kidney or liver problems, including hepatitis. if you have hepatitis b, do not stop taking biktarvy without talking to your doctor. common side effects were diarrhea, nausea, and headache. if you're hiv-positive, keep loving who you are, inside and out. ask your doctor if biktarvy is right for you. tuit's a flash sale you can't afford to miss! take an extra 20% off hundreds of incredible deals storewide!...

to islam just recently, and converted himself to violent jihad, and he started to plan large scale attacks that could have left hundreds of people dead now. he allegedly told an fbi informant that he wanted to attack police stations, military bare racks and set up bombs here at a white nationalist rally in long beach. that informant apparently got him these bombs, but they were plants, fake fbi bombs and when he took possession of them, the fbi moved in, arrested him. if convicted, he faces 15 years in prison. >> such great work by the fbi. okay, matt. thank you. we're going to turn to that severe weather threat bringing hail, heavy rain and widespread flood alerts. 20 million americans in the storm zone this morning. let's go back over to ginger tracking it all. hey, ginger. >> hey there, cecilia. we wanted to start with snow because these images are always tough to see the day before may unless you're in grand marais,
