7:06 am
>> i'm so sorry all this had to happen. i'm so sorry. >> reporter: the most recent confirmed sighting occurred on monday. just before authorities discovered the car they were last known to be traveling in, a checkpoint has been set up on the only road in and out of the community of gillam, but the dense boggy terrain is making the search for suspects challenging, police say. >> a lotoiinhis stor al aeit. w going tr king s a series of powerful earthquakes hitting a group of islands off the coast of the philippines. at least eight people have been reported dead. another 60 injured. locals scrambled out of their beds in the middle of the night as houses built out of stone and wood collapsed around them. this morning many people are being told to stay out of their homes because officials are worried about aftershocks. in a very rare move an entire platoon of navy s.e.a.l.s has been sent home from iraq following allegations of drinking and sexual misconduct. u.s. officials tell abc news the drinking happened at a fourth of

july party in iraq. they're now investigating allegations of sexual assault on a female service member. the platoon members are said to not be cooperating with the investigation. now to a victory overnight for president trump's effort to fund his border wall even as democrats take a major step that could lead to possible impeachment. abc's white house correspondent tara palmeri is on the north lawn with that story. tara, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, whit. the house is out of session for the summer, but there's still a lot of unresolved issues for the democrats. there's broad opposition to the supreme court ruling in favor of a wall, and there's also the open debate on impeachment. overnight the supreme court giving president trump the green light to spend $2.5 billion in defense funds to build a wall along the u.s./mexican border. the court's conservative majority siding with the white house in a narrow 5-4 ruling lifting an injunction by a lower court that halted construction. in february the president declared a national emergency to
7:08 am
reallocate the pentagon's budget to try to stop the flow of migrants to the southern border. the president calling the supreme court's decision a victory tweeting, big win for border security and the rule of law. 2020 candidate senator kamala harris accusing the president of abusing his executive power tweeting, congress did not appropriate these funds for trump's medieval vanity project. let's be clear. trump's wall has never been about keeping the american people safe. while democrats are united against the wall, they're still split on impeachment after former special counsel robert mueller testified on wednesday that the president had not been cleared of obstructing justice and was not exonerated. 101 house members support impeachment and some house democrats are accusing nancy pelosi of slow walking impeachment hearings. >> let's get sophisticated about this, okay. what we need to proceed. not one day sooner.
7:09 am
>> reporter: house judiciary chairman jerry nadler said their hearings are a part of the impeachment process. >> we are investigating all of this, and we are going to see what remedies we can recommend including the possibility of articles of impeachment. >> the president blasting democrats calling it a fishing expedition. >> they're doing everything they can with the impeachment nonsense. these people are clowns. >> reporter: nadler may be showing that they're taking steps in the direction of impeachment, but the house has not formally voted on whether to impeach or not. whit. >> and, tara, going back to the issue of immigration for a moment, president trump is also announcing a new asylum deal with guatemala to help stop the flow of migrants. >> reporter: that's right. this new deal allows the u.s. to deport migrants who enter the u.s. by way of guatemala and don't actually first apply for asylum in guatemala. now, this new deal is called a safe third country agreement and critics are already calling it
7:10 am
illegal and immoral. it's bound to face a lot of legal challenges in the u.s. and already has in guatemala. whit. >> tara palmeri at the white house for us, thank you. dan. a lot to talk about here on the political front so let's bring in abc news chief political analyst matthew dowd who is joining us from texas. matthew, let's start with this border wall. overnight the president called this decision from the supreme court, which will allow him to use pentagon dollars to start building the wall, he called it, quote, a big win. i know you disagree with the president quite frequently but is he right on this one? is it, in fact, a big win? >> well, i think it's a win for him in at least today or tomorrow or in the short term so, yes, he got the money he wanted, but i think he's still left with a lot of questions on resolve. one is there is a case that will still be pending so a year or a year and a half from now he may lose that case that's currently in play but also in the situation where now he's having the pentagonhe gov
7:11 am
mexico was going to pay for, so -- and the other part of this, dan, that i think that republicans have to be fearful of is how much power do you want to vest in a chief executive? this is another part of power being vested in the chief executive when a democrat, if a democrat ever wins the presidency again, those precedences are going to be in place so in the short term, yes, a win, in the long term it's problematic if they want to fight a democrat in the house over executive power. >> a lot of questions about executive power and the precedent set going forward. let me move on. border security which we've been talking about as well as the ongoing debate over whether to impeach, which we were talking about a few moments ago, both of those issues are likely to be squarely on the agenda when the democratic presidential candidates meet in the coming week for a pair of debates. what is at stake for these candidates as we head into these debates? >> well, dan, i think there's a couple of things. first, as you mentioned, i think they're going to be put in the position and i'm sure by the
7:12 am
questioners is if they disagree with nancy pelosi's strategy. a number of the democratic candidates for president have come out for impeachment or to move toward hearings which nancy pelosi has been very patient about and as she said she disagrees but slow walk this so they're going to be put in the position of do they or do they not agree with nancy pelosi on this. the other part i think there is a huge amount of pressure for the candidates that are polling low because, as you know, in september when the democrats had the debate with abc, there's a whole new set of standards that are going to be put in place. you have to be at 2% of the polls. you have to have 130,000 contributors and many of the candidates are going to be there next week don't meet those requirements today so they're going to have to figure out a way how to jump over that and get to the place they can be in the debates in september. >> yeah, we're heading into a time of some pretty severe winnowing pretty soon. matthew dowd, really appreciate your analysis on a saturday morning. eva, over to you. >> all right, thanks, guys. now to two americans from san francisco detained in rome overnight in the death of a police officer. abc's david wright is in london with the latest. good morning, david.
7:13 am
>> reporter: good morning, eva. this is a developing story but here's what we know. italian authorities say these two american tourists have confessed to killing an officer of the carabinieri. that's the italian national police force. a 35-year-old officer stabbed to death apparently as he tried to resolve a dispute over a stolen backpack. police say that the suspect stole the backpack thursday night then tried to ransom it back to its owner. he called the cops and these two plainclothes officers showed up for the handover. that's when a scuffle ensued. the officer stabbed. the attackers fled the scene. these two americans arrested last night. >> david, what do we know about these suspects? >> well, here's where it starts to get a little murky. the authorities rounded up the two americans and several north africans based on some grainy surveillance footage that placed them at the scene, they say. police say they're both students from san francisco. both 19 years old. no names confirmed as of yet. both are being held in a prison
7:14 am
in rome. italian police now say this may have been a drug deal gone bad but in any case killing a cop is a big deal in italy just as it would be in the states. the young officer is a newlywed. he was married just in june so emotions running high. these two americans both we're told from san francisco being charged with aggravated murder and attempted extortion. whit. >> david wright in london. thank you. now to accusations of sexual assault against one of president trump's top military nominees. abc's rachel scott is in washington with the story and we want to warn you, the allegations include some graphic language. >> reporter: army colonel kathryn spletstoser stepping forward to publicly detail sexual assault allegations against her former boss, air force general john hyten, the man nominated to become the military's second most powerful leader. spletstoser told "the new york times" that after a full day at a defense
7:15 am
forum in december 2017, hyten knocked on her hotel room door in the evening say he wanted to talk. once inside spletstoser said he pulled her to him and kissed her on the lips while pressing himself against her levering semen on his sweatpants and on her yoga pants. she said he inappropriately touched her several times earlier in 2017 and later was often apologetic afterwards including after the alleged incident in california which she reported after his nomination was announced in april. military investigators found insufficient evidence to support the allegations and hyten denies they happened. a pentagon spokesperson calling him a principled and dedicated patriot, but the public accusation is now casting a shadow over his nomination to be the next joint chiefs vice chairman. and just days ago in front of the senate committee deciding his fate both hyten and spletstoser testified behind closed doors. initial reports of the allegations alarmed some lawmakers. >> i am taking her allegations
7:16 am
very seriously. my concern is that he's not been treated in the same manner as other military officers who have had similar allegations against them. whether those allegations were substantiated or dismissed. >> reporter: despite those allegations, that senate committee decided to move forward with the confirmation hearing next week. hyten will be in the hot seat and it may be the first time we publicly hear him address those allegations. dan. >> high stakes hearing indeed. thank you, rachel. moving on to another story this morning, nine campus police officers have been fired from hampton university after an investigation found racist and misogynistic posts online. hampton university, which is one of the country's oldest historically black universities called the posts egregious violations of the code of conduct and said the school has zero tolerance for that kind of behavior. >> let's get a check of the forecast now with rob, and we had the heat wave in the east. now they're dealing with it in the west. >> we try to balance things out, whit. >> we got to keep it fair. >> spread the love a little bit. you've been dealing with it in
7:17 am
california especially and a little fire broke out yesterday uth10housand oaks. three-acre fire. nice little pool there. didn't have to tap into that thankfully. the firefighters got a handle on it and put it out relatively quickly but it's a reminder that we are heading into the peak of fire season through august, september and october as things continue to dry out. with the heat on, heat advisories up for san jose yesterday with temperatures getting into the lower 80s. 90s inland areas and san francisco, as well. heat advisories today, heat watches right through the weekend. 107 in fresno, in the shade san joaquin valley. interior valleys. 104 in sacramento and it will continue to build so temperatures will be well into the triple digits. 115 or better in palm springs and 110 or better in las vegas. there is a little cool front that's trying to squeeze some of this out of the atmosphere but i think it's

after two geographical places. made me think of that. >> news you can use. rob, way to button up that forecast. >> brought it home strong. >> there you go. >> i feel like we're getting a disturbing window into your mind. >> tst tng. sadly, we know. >> i'm going to step in and save rob's career right now. rob, love you. let's talk about the honeymoon hike that went horribly wrong. by the way, there is a happy ending here but the hike did force a new wife to climb into a volcano to save her husband and abc's maggie rulli is on the desk with more on the story. good morning. >> good morning, dan. the story is incredible. the wife, okay, she's just 5'2", barely more than 100 pounds yet somehow she was able to drag her new husband, who, by the way, is more than 60 pounds heavier than her down a mountain to save his life. the couple is calling it a miracle. their caribbean honeymoon almost ended in tragedy. >> i was just completely terrified that my husband was going to die on our honeymoon. >> reporter: but this morning clay chastain is alive and recovering thanks to the strength of his new wife
7:20 am
acaimie. the newlyweds were out hiking in st. kitts when clay decided to climb down a dormant volcano by himself. >> i'm usually pretty cautious so it's possible that i slipped but i find it more likely a rope broke on me. >> reporter: moments later acaimie says she hears clay calling out for help. >> i started climbing as rapidly as i could down into the crater. >> reporter: finally she sees clay bloody and disoriented about 50 feet down. >> at this point in time i'm literally shrieking his name, i'm screaming his name. >> reporter: with no cell service and no one else around it was on acaimie to save her husband's life. >> i was just praying to god that i wouldn't have to be flying back to the united states by myself without a husband anymore. >> reporter: for almost three hours acaimie guided and pushed clay up out of the crater and down the mountain until they were able to reach cell service and call 911. >> it was just incredible how d s good to uand

7:32 am
pounds of cocaine. spki feignan this comes just two weeks after this harrowing moment the coast guard pursuing a suspected drug smuggling submarine. one guardsman jumping onto the narco sub banging on the hatch to open. once inside they arrested five suspects and seized 17,000 pounds of cocaine worth hundreds of millions of dollars. in the past few months officials have nabbed nearly half a billion dollars in cocaine. now, so far this year the coast guard has made more than 100 busts detaining more than 400 suspected smugglers in the pacific and you see the technology is just advancing in these narco subs that they call them now chasing them down and tracking them as best they can. >> high stakes cat and mouse game and dangerous. incredible video. thank you, whit. we turn to a mother's warning to other parents during

7:34 am
in adam's case his mother realized what was happening describing the awful terror on facebook writing, a million thoughts were flying through my head as i stumbled around not knowing what i was doing, screaming. i ran to him and watched and cried and talked to him as my friend tirelessly and relentlessly continued cpr. >> i don't know how many rounds of cpr i did. i know at one point it was like god was telling me, he's going to come back, just keep doing it. >> reporter: that cpr saving his life. >> if that was not available, he never would have made it. he would have come out, he would have laid there while we waited on someone to come help him. >> now, the expert we spoke with says anyone can drown, even an olympic swimmer. that's why it's so important to know cpr and what drowning really looks like. as for adam, doctors say he is going to be completely fine. and maribeth has actually come forward to share her family's personal trauma despite attacks on her parenting because she wants to save other lives.
7:35 am
>> coming forward may save a lot of other lives. >> one of my biggest fears as a parent especially when kids go to a different pool and you're not there, you never know. >> number one killer of kids 1 through 4. >> seeing that one child in the picture drowning, you can't really tell when you look. >> they think they're playing. >> yeah. thanks, lana. >> well, time now for the weather and rob marciano. >> i always have an eye on whit's kids when they're at my pool. >> we're usually at your pool when you're not there. >> exactly, misbehaving. we're in the height of pool season, so certainly be careful there. you're probably tempted to cool off, no doubt about that. there are storms. you want to get out of the water when lightning strikes and that often comes with hail . this is out of -- near minneapolis, st. paul. in some areas up to four-inch diameter hail, these about the size of peas banging off the pavement there. we had 75-mile-an-hour winds in nebraska from some of the storms and the cold fronts as they are typically this time of year scooting across the northern tier so the great lakes, parts of wisconsin, this front will kind of press off towards the east. another one comes through riding that summertime jet stream but thunderstorms are arriving into milwaukee late tomorrow night
