7:00 am

7:01 am
presidential candidate and the brothers taking on the ballroom. the whole "dancing with the stars" cast here for their first live interview and our biggest party yet. >> a megasexy megahit. >> you don't want to miss it only on "gma." ? oh whoa whoa ? and good morning, america. that's not all who is here today. look at the cast of "dancing party this morning. we have a lot of fun this wednesday. >> that's right, the full cast as you can see arriving and michael, trust us, it's always a wild and crazy morning. >> yeah, george warned me. george said, michael, brace yourself. laurie hernandez, ryan lochte, the olympian, marcia brady, aka maureen mccormick, is here. vanilla ice is here and former presidential candidate rick perry. every year we say how can they outdo themselves. they've outdone themselves, a
7:02 am
>> our spies say rick perry can actually dance. >> i didn't know we had spies. >> george always has the inside on everything. and speaking of presidential candidates, just 62 days until the election and the war of words reaching a fever pitch. both candidates painting their opponent as a danger to national security. trump's campaign manager kellyanne conway is here. george is going to speak with her live in just a moment. but first, abc's jon karl is on the trail in greenville, north carolina, where trump took on hillary clinton and her e-mails overnight. >> reporter: good morning, robin. trump went after clinton using that recently released fbi report on her e-mails to say that she is unfit for office which, of course, is exactly what hillary clinton says about donald trump. overnight in north carolina, donald trump offered a point-by-point indictment of hillary clinton. he zeroed in on the fbi report revealing how her staff
7:03 am
>> they used hammers to destroy phones so they couldn't be turned over and, by the way, who uses 13 different iphones? in four years? who? the only people who use that many phones are usually involved in very, very and i mean very shady activity. >> reporter: trump called it wo chants of "lock her up" from his supporters. >> let's do better than that. let's win on november 8th. >> reporter: the actual debates are weeks away, but the candidates are already engaged in a virtual debate. on foreign policy. >> putin looks at her and he laughs, okay. he laughs. >> he says he has a secret plan to defeat isis.
7:04 am
-- he has no plan. >> reporter: on care of veterans. >> his whole campaign has been one long insult to all those who have worn the uniform to protect our most cherished american values. >> hillary clinton said everything is working just fine. she doesn't know that people are standing on line for seven days to see a doctor and dying. >> reporter: but as trump hit clinton for lack of transparency. she fired back at him for telling abc news that nobody cares about his taxes. >> i just think he's dead wrong. story that the american people deserve and need to know. >> reporter: but overnight, trump said he would release his tax returns immediately if clinton releases all of her deleted e-mails. >> let her release her e-mails and i'll release my tax returns immediately. >> reporter: now, just a few seconds after making that pledge that he would be open to releasing his tax returns, george, he seemed to take it back saying that would be, of
7:05 am
meanwhile, both clinton and trump will appear on the same stage tonight, although at different times, at a national security forum in new york. >> that's right, okay, jon karl, thanks very much. let's talk about all this now with kellyanne conway, donald trump's campaign manager, and i want to start out with national security because that's what you'll talk about tonight. it's shown you are moving up in the polls over the last week. a clinton super pac is hitting back hard with this new ad. >> i'm really good at -- i love including with nukes, yes, including with nukes. i know more about isis than the generals do, believe me. >> i love war, putting nuclear weapons on the table. the clinton camp says that's irresponsible. >> what's irresponsible is cherry-picking little snippets of what he said. this woman was secretary of state for four years. and i think the reason she's
7:06 am
in part because people aren't fond of that record and she will be held account for that record. she's actually been in control of many aspects of our national security and our troops and defense and i think that given all of her super pac, including her campaign having spent over $200 million most in paid advertising, one wonders why is she not at 50%, 60% in the polls. hillary clinton has a hillary clinton problem. >> what does he mean when he says i love war? >> i'd have to see the entire snippet there but obviously, many commanders-in-chief have made the very difficult decision to go to war. you have hillary clinton as secretary of state calling a russia reset that didn't work, she was wrong on libya, she was wrong on syria and certainly wrong on benghazi, and i think they'll both be held to account for that. but we need to -- this is why it's so important to come out of hiding and i'm glad mrs. clinton has done that because people deserve a conversation with the candidates and don't just do ads against each other.
7:07 am
mr. trump was with 88 -- he had 88 military generals come out to support him yesterday and he did a military preparedness town hall in virginia, and then he was in north carolina and got to talk to the voters directly. >> those conversations are certainly coming. mr. trump has been hitting clinton on the clinton foundation saying it's pay to play but, yet, the front page of "the new york times," says a lot of contribution that his foundation made to pam bondi, the time line is, they spoke on the phone. an investigation w a trump foundation accepts a $25,000 check. the investigation is called off. if that were mrs. clinton wouldn't you be calling that pay to play? >> well, i would ask her what happened, and in the case of mr. trump and attorney general bondi, they both said they never discussed the trump university lawsuit. mr. trump -- >> they did talk on the phone at that time period. >> they may have talked about anything. he has a residence in florida. >> and she asked for a contribution. >> for her re-election. he has supported many, many republican candidates. but we do know that mrs. clinton, secretary clinton used
7:08 am
concierge for many foreign donors. that's been evidenced. half the meetings by those who gave money. there's actually no comparison of a man who gives consistently to republican candidates in the re-election and had her official staff that we pay for, bartering for position and bartering for state dinners and, you know, just making contributions that are inappropriate, the state department is a very busy place. we should be getting human rights for those women and girls who are disrespected around the world and not worry about foreign governments coming in. >> roger ailes, fox news paying a $20 million settlement over that sexual harassment lawsuit. a lot reporting mr. ailes is helping with attack lines. is that appropriate in light of this settlement? >> so, i'm at trump tower every day. i'm the campaign manager. i've never seen mr. ailes there. i saw him one time for lunch recently. he was at lunch and -- >> but he is giving mr. trump advice, isn't he?
7:09 am
know because mr. trump speaks to many people on the phone when i'm not there and they have known each other for 30 years pre-fox news and pre-presidential politics. >> kellyanne conway, thanks. >> thanks for having me. >> thank you, george. now to that deadly hurricane to hit mexico on the move this morning and the tropical storm could make history in the u.s. and ginger has been tracking the storm and, ginger, what do we have? >> newton is now a tropical storm in northwestern mexico about to cross the border into arizona. that's right, i said a tropical storm in arizona and that is rare. so, if it does indeed stay a tropical storm and make its way right there over tucson, not only see wind and a lot of rain but it only be the sixth time in recorded history that arizona has direct impact from a tropical storm. so what does that mean for you? you can get 2 inches to 4 inches of rain falling quickly. it is so dry in the southwest as we know with a lot of drought in place, that's going to be a big issue. you can also see the moisture get trapped as far north as wisconsin so, michael, not only is this a big deal for a huge
7:10 am
mother-in-law lives in tucson so, there is a lot of work here and, janice, i got you, all right. >> may be moving in with you. >> right. >> a little bit. >> that's right. >> thank you, ginger. we're going to get the latest now on bill cosby. he appeared in a pennsylvania court yesterday where a judge set a june trial date for his sexual assault case. abc's linsey davis has been covering it from the start, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, george. bill cosby's lead attorney says his client has been the victim of racial bias and prejudice. and while he contends that for the past 14 months the sexual assault allegations against cosby have played out in the court of public opinion nine months from now they will be laid out in criminal court when his client goes to trial. bill cosby will have his day in court no later than june 5th of next year. his legal team says they welcome the trial date. >> the time has come for somebody somewhere to shine a spotlight on the trampling of this man's civil rights and that time is now. >> reporter: the three counts of
7:11 am
incident in 2004. former temple university employee andrea constand alleges the 79-year-old entertainer drugged and molested her at his pennsylvania home. she is one of at least 50 women who have accused the comedian of sexual assault. prosecutors hope to paint cosby as a serial offender and are asking the judge to allow 13 accusers to testify at the trial. women that they say could demonstrate a pattern of behavior that's consistent with constand's allegations. >> if it wasn't important we wouldn it. >> reporter: cosby has maintained all along that the encounter with constand was consensual and long denied the other allegations. >> women should not be objectified but not at the cost of sacrificing every person's fundamental right to be deemed innocent before proven guilty. >> reporter: cosby's lead attorney says they'll likely ask for a change of venue but the judge points out that due to the
7:12 am
difficult to find prospective jurors anywhere who are not familiar with the details of the case. robin. >> all right, linsey, thank you. now to that big break in the case of a missing child who vanished nearly 27 years ago, a minnesota man confessing in chilling detail about abducting and killing 11-year-old jacob wetterling in 1989. abc's alex perez has all the details for us. good morning, alex. >> reporter: hey, good morning, robin. investigators say the man responsible for jacob' had been a suspect for years but it wasn't until they nabbed him on a separate case that he finally confessed. after nearly three decades jacob wetterling's family and friends in a minnesota courtroom finally learning the horrific truth about his disappearance. >> i want to say, jacob, i'm so sorry. >> reporter: danny heinrich confessing in federal court tuesday as part of a plea deal. the 53-year-old already behind bars for child pornography charges. >> danny heinrich is no longer a person of interest but the
7:13 am
of jacob wetterling. >> reporter: heinrich revealed grim details of his death admitting he abducted him and sexually abused him before shooting him. >> last week, an 11-year-old boy was kidnapped from the streets of st. joseph, minnesota. >> reporter: in 1989, wetterling vanished riding his bicycle with his brother and friend. police reporting a masked gunman kidnapped the boy, leading to a massive search for any leads behind his disappearance. >> mornings are i think the worst for me. >> reporter: the case growing cold until heinrich gave the fbi a tip last week. >> he led investigators to the burial site, finally we knew, finally the wetterling family could lay their son to rest. >> for us, jacob was alive till we found him. >> reporter: over the last 27
7:14 am
become national advocates for missing children. heinrich under the plea deal will spend 20 years behind bars. robin. >> all right, alex, thank you. we're definitely thinking of jacob's family this morning. let's go to amy with today's other top stories, starting with a nationwide manhunt. >> that's right. this story breaking overnight, a murder suspect who escaped from police custody in las vegas has been captured after a four-day manhunt, alonso perez. he escaped from his handcuffed after he was left unattended. in a police interrogation room. and a developing story in paris at this hour, word of a potential terrorism plot outside notre dame cathedral. police now confirm they found a vehicle packed with gas cylind cylinders is out the cathedral sunday. and there are new details on the $1.7 billion the u.s. paid iran this year. the obama administration now
7:15 am
critics claim the payment was ransom for the release of american hostages. but the white house insists it was a settlement stemming from the 1970s and says cash was necessary because sanctions blocked iran from using the global banking system. well, a record-breaking american astronaut has returned to earth joining two russians in a soyuz capsule landing in central asia. jeff williams spent six months on the space station during four missions, he spent a record 534 days in orbit. and an unusual landing for a suspected drunk driver in connecticut. his car ended up lodged into this building eight feet off the ground. police say he fled but was caught just a short time later but what a stunning photo there. and finally, basketball superstar steph curry is on a promotional tour overseas and he decided to join a game in taiwan but watch what happened when he tried to make one of his famous three-point shots, boom, he was blocked. >> whoa. >> by a 17-year-old. everyone was shocked.
7:16 am
and then invited him to join his basketball camp in the u.s. but, you know, he made 402 three-pointers last season alone. just took that one 17-year-old, i don't think so. not so fast. >> every kid will try to block his shots so they get invited to his camp. >> picture his whole life. that's fantastic. >> absolutely. and another thing everybody is excited about, big apple announcement. a lot of people are anticipating this, lots of talk that an iphone 7 will be revealed later today, and abc's neal karlinsky is in san francisco outside the auditorium where the announcement is expected. good morning, neal, how are you? >> reporter: michael, good morning. big day out here. >> really big day. you remember when your iphone was this size. that's about the size of my thumb right now. but now what do you remember -- what do you expect from this new iphone 7? what can we all look forward to?
7:17 am
of my old ones too. it looks like a toy next to the iphone 6. look at that. a huge difference that they've come but now i think the new iphone we'll see today is not going to be as drastic a change at least in appearance from the iphone 6. >> the big thing everyone is talking about is no headphone jack. a lot of us have bought headphones, i know have. some really expensive. what is going on with the no headphone jack? is that something that's reality? >> reporter: here's what we're expecting from the new iphone 7 and it is actually one of the smallest parts right down there, you're right. it's that headphone jack. we think apple is taking that away. taking that real estate back. possibly for another speaker, possibly to make the phone more waterproof. possibly for a larger battery. another big change we're expecting is for the first time that home button won't be an actual physical button that you can push in. it'll be a touch sensitive area on the phone and one other big thing, it's not as sexy but it's important to a lot of people, that's possibly more storage, 32 gigs in the base model.
7:18 am
to delete photos and movies to make room on their phones. but you're right, it's that headphone jack that has a lot of people buzzing. you'll likely get an adapter or have to buy an adapter so you won't have to throw out those expensive headphones and there might possibly be some wireless headphones too. >> i don't know about you, neal, but i think more storage is very sexy. very sexy to me. always use more storage. >> you're heading into dangerous territory right there. neal, thank you, and hopefully we can see that iphone 7 on the shelves soon. let's go back to ginger with snow in the rockies and heat in the east. >> yes, you know it's autumn when we're looking at this. this is montana so this is higher elevation, right. but they did get the snow and then summer not over at all. the heat and humidity building and it will feel like the 90s and 100s from the mid-atlantic through the northeast through

? welcome back to "gma." take a look at that winning moment from season 22 of "dancing with the stars." nyle and peta crowned the champs. this morning, the brand-new cast here live coming into times square. the dancing has already begun. we got a big performance ahead. >> we can't wait for that, just moments away from that. but also right now, donald trump and hillary clinton trading attacks ahead of the first debates which are just weeks away. trump's campaign manager spoke live with george, kellyanne conway, and she questioned hillary clinton's record on national security and says she doesn't know if roger ailes is giving trump advice. and president obama is overseas this morning making history with his trip to laos. the first sitting american president to visit there touring a centuries-old buddhist temple this morning and revealing he'd
7:31 am
once he leaves office. and also this morning, the boss, bruce springsteen, he's used to making millions of fans happy at his concerts rocking out for nearly four hours but this morning the very surprising revelation from the boss himself opening up in a way he's never done before about some dark days and what's behind them and we'll have all those details on our big board. >> chris connelly talking about that. >> serious revelations right there. but we begin with those news. they agreed to pay gretchen carlson a staggering $20 million to settle a sex yal harassment suit against roger aileshg s. amy is here with the latest and, amy, that other surprise longtime anchor greta van susteren announced she is out, as well. >> greta is out and gretchen is getting a big settlement. when she filed her lawsuit two months ago no one knew what would happen taking on one of the most powerful men in the news business, it seemed like a big risk, but now she has won a
7:32 am
may be far from over. >> big lawsuit, big payout. >> $20 million. >> settled a sexual discrimination lawsuit. >> reporter: fox news making headlines of its own just two months after the bombshell lawsuit from former "fox & friends" anchor gretchen carlson against the powerful fox news chief roger ailes for sexual harassment. the network's parent company is settling for $20 million. the announcement after a scathing "new york" magazine article alleging carlson had been secretly recording conversations with him since 2014. according to the report in one recording he allegedly told her, i think you and i should have had a sexual relationship a long time ago and then you'd be good and better and i'd be good and better. >> the parent company wanted this to be over and done with. they're trying to have this be part of the past, not part of their future. >> reporter: in an unprecedented public apology to carlson 21st century fox said we sincerely regret and apologize for the fact that gretchen was not treated with the respect and
7:33 am
colleagues deserve. carlson, whose contract expired in june responded saying, i'm ready to move on to the next chapter of my life in which i will redouble my efforts to empower women in the workplace. as roger ailes who has always denied the allegations resigned from fox news two weeks after the lawsuit was filed, his lawyers told abc news, he is not contributing to the $20 million settlement and, just minutes after that settlement made news, an abrupt statement announcing the departure of greta van susteren, who supported ailes when the allegations first surfaced. >> there's so much going on beyond on the record. >> reporter: fox news saying we are grateful for greta's many contributions over the years and wish her continued success. later that day, greta writing on her facebook page, fox has not felt like home to me for a few years. a source close to greta told abc news that she exercised what is called the key man clause in her contract which allowed her to leave if ailes was no longer at the helm. miss van susteren's husband said
7:34 am
new york times" on tuesday, there is so much chaos it's very hard to work there. and as a part of ailes' severance package he received a reported $40 million payout which would be double what carlson will receive in her settlement. george. >> yeah, and he's not paying any part of the carlson settlement. let's talk to dan abrams about this right now. pretty unusual to see that apology from fox news -- i mean from 21st century fox in addition to paying the $20 million. we also have known reports of other cases being settled. will that open the door to new cases? >> well, i think the $20 million will open the door to new cases. wow, they're willing to pay 20 million in a case like this. keep in mind, nationally, the average sexual harassment settlement is five figures, meaning 50,000 to $100,000 range. you're talking about 20 million. gretchen carlson was not one of the higher paid people at fox news. so this is a gigantic settlement number from fox and the fact
7:35 am
written apology is incredibly unusual and you know that that was part of the settlement agreement. >> the demand. >> right. this was not just something fox decided to put out. it's incredibly unusual to see this kind of number and apology. >> the other unusual element she sued roger ailes personally, yet 21st century fox comes up and makes the settlement. >> look, it was always clear that it was going to c to 21st century fox because he was working for them. you can try to sue him personally and try to make him the one accountable but when he's working in his capacity as the chairman of fox news, they're going to be the ones that have to pay for it in the end. >> so you won't be surprised to see more suits? >> there's still the statute of limitations. you can't start bringing stuff up from many, many years ago. there has to be stuff relatively recent, last few years or so for it to be a legitimate lawsuit. >> how about this greta van susteren case. her husband a prominent
7:36 am
new york times" there's more here than meets the eye. litigation could be coming. what could that be about? >> it seems what happened greta tried to play hardball when interest came to negotiations and saw an opportunity, had an opportunity legally to get out of her contract if roger ailes was no longer there. she basically says to fox, i want out of my contract. and they say, well, we're not going to negotiate. it's over. we're done. so, she may have overstated her import to fox and as a result, made a bad call when it came to the negotiations but it sounds additional legal wrangling between her and fox as well. >> okay, dan abrams, thanks very much. >> all right, very interesting. coming up on our big board, rock 'n' roll legend bruce springsteen opening up about his difficult battle with depression. what's behind it, and the latest on how he's doing. plus, the colin kaepernick debate is heating up again as team usa's hockey coach steps in threatening to bench players who

7:40 am
east street band might not have noticed even though he did a song called "this depression" but at home it was definitely a factor and credits his wife patty with being able to spot when something is wrong and this man needs a pill. it's a sobering thing from someone. he's heard the cheers across the country, a lot of them in the same stadium, michael, where you heard them back in the day. >> he heard it more than we did. more than we did. >> but when you leave the stage it's just not the same. >> a different thing. it's real life after that. when he talked to "vanity fair" this is what he said depression. he was afraid he would go down the same path that his father did. he said you don't know the illness's parameters. can i get sick enough to where i become a lot more like my father than i thought i might, which is what? what was his father like? >> "vanity fair" telling us that he was prone to paranoia and bursts of tears and things like that. their turbulent relationship deeply chronicled in many of his most powerful songs and some of
7:41 am
at concerts as well, and the "vanity fair" story chronicling a history of mental history on his father's side. it's an example of how insidious this condition is that someone who is so familiar with the joy he brings to audiences and who gets so much joy from the people who cheer for him would face this on an ongoing basis and share it with the world. >> sharing -- how big -- no one wants to talk about it. people they look at it. pull yourself out of it. >> in locker rooms, in cubicles. pull yourself up. exactly, cheer up. he understands intellectually what he faces and he's going forward with the full knowledge and support of his family so that's got to be a positive thing around the country. >> one of the highlights of the career of "gma" -- remember when we had the -- was it asbury park and to be there with him and he took over our entire show several years back, what a morning that was. >> he is the key popular figure for so many people. >> i think this announcement is going to help a lot of people. >> i hope so. >> we're pulling for him and everybody else. >> so much of his great music comes from that deep

>> thank you, chris. now to the latest sports figure wading into the colin kaepernick debate. john tortorella, head coach of team usa, telling espn if any of my players sit on the bench for the national anthem they will sit there the rest of the game. we have espn's stephen a. smith joining us now and there he is. there is the guy right there. >> buckle up. >> what's going on? >> you look a little like a preacher with that black suit on. black tie. it's such a divisive issue. why even enter into the conversation? >> well, it beats me. he really had no business ingratiating himself into the situation. but what i really have a problem with john's position on this. it's one thing if you're representing the nfl or the nba, a private industry. but we're talking about team usa, we're talking about first amendment rights under the united states constitution, and when you consider it from that perspective, to be a

then want to sit and pooh-pooh u.s. values seems a bit nonsensical to me and i think it's beyond the pale and if john tortorella doesn't change his position on that matter, i think he's somebody that should be replaced as team usa coach. there's simply no excuse for that. >> some would argue with that, stephen a., here he is talking about his son serving in the military, and when you talk about that, that really gets people going on both sides of the issue and it's interesting that we saw many reports. kaepernick's jersey reportedly is the top seller. >> yeah. >> right now. what do you think that says? >> well, i think it says that we're a divided nation. you have some people that are looking and highly sensitive to what colin kaepernick had to say in terms of bringing up the police violence and brutality as it pertains to the african-american community and then you have those on the other side that don't appear to be as sensitive to that particular plight. no matter what way you slice it, robin, here's what it comes down
7:44 am
a nation we are, we're still one nation, the greatest nation in the world and one of the reasons why is because of the rights that individual liberties come with. and if you have the freedom of speech in this country under the united states constitution's first amendment that ultimately supersedes everything. and so we can respect where tortorella is coming from and we can certainly respect where people from our military men and women are highly sensitive to this and have every right to be. what we stand for is what it comes down to and if colin kaepernick is exercising his fi usa coach shouldn't say i am going to sit you down if you don't abide by what i think. you should abide by that. that's as un-american as it gets. >> a lot of passion there in if he does step down you may have to take over. >> stephen, oh, gosh. >> checking line. >> i'll go with chris connelly first. >> i don't know. >> hey, thanks, stephen a. now to a san francisco
7:45 am
wedding video going viral. they filed a federal lawsuit against the company that shot it. it captured an awkward movement when the groom tried to remove the bride's garter. sunny you're going to weigh in on this. but i want to read something here. the company said we are very disappointed and upset by the situation and we have spent considerable time removing our video from the internet. they said our video. what do you read into that? sunny. >> they said our video because the video belongs to the company, the defendant in this case. that's what's so interesting and it's a little-known fact. videos and photos taken by wedding photographers are owned by the company. the photographers and the videographers. under copyright law they own it and can do whatever they please with it, including disseminating it on the internet. >> uh-oh. >> okay, so, before you -- i just learned something from that.
7:46 am
>> mine was so long ago my wedding images are in cave paintings. >> but, sunny, if you have somebody videoing, is there a way you can have a contract that give you the rights that you own the pictures of yourself and your family. whatever it may be. >> absolutely, because my wedding video is in my safe at my house because of all the stuff that's on it and that's because as a lawyer i knew to negotiate. negotiate. negotiate. so the little-known fact that you can negotiate is very, very important so, you ask the videographer and you ask photographer, listen, transfer those copyrights to me and that way you have full ownership. the other thing in this case is, no judgment here, but maybe drink just a little bit less so that your wedding video doesn't necessarily go viral. i mean, wedding is one day. your video going viral is forever. >> yeah, what's that stuff on your video that you got it all
7:47 am
>> it's in a safe, robin, it's in a safe. >> for a reason, i'm sure. chris, thank you. stephen, thank you, sunny, thank you as well. and coming up, t.j.'s got the scoop on taylor swift and tom hiddleston. t.j. >> yeah, this is a tough one for this actor. he might have lost his girlfriend, the biggest pop star in the world but maybe lost out on one of the most coveted jobs in acting, george, i've got your hiddleswift update coming next. acting, george, i've got your hiddleswift update coming next. . alzheimer's disease is out there. to make it happen by funding scientific breakthroughs, advancing public policy, and providing local support to those living with the disease and their caregivers. but we won't get there without you. visit alz.org to join the fight. wish your skin could bounce
