7:09 am
mcfadden, who has been covering the case since that trial. i know you were watching that parole hearing as closely as all of us were. to me, it seemed like the parole board knew what they were going to do. >> as you know, the parole board has very specific guidelines for what they need to do. and o.j. checked all of the boxes. at the beginning of the hearing, we heard the risk factors were low, the aggravating factors, to keep him in, was because the victims feared for their safety. we had one of the victims, the only surviving victim was saying, it's all cool with me. >> and i'll pick you up. >> you knew they were going to release him. but i have to tell him, o.j. simpson did himself no favors yesterday. what he said to the parole board, my jaw was hanging down. >> he looked like a guy that knew what the parole board was going to do. he was confident, he was

7:11 am
conditions that if you violate, you're back in jail. >> he will have two parole boards. if he goes to florida, which is his preference, his house there was put up -- was taken from him, essentially. if he goes to florida, it would be nevada and florida, would set conditions. and so, he'll have to make sure he walks the straight and narrow. and with social media out there, which wasn't there in 23 years ago, or even 9, every public move will be recorded. >> cynthia, thank you for having here. appreciate it. we'll have more on o.j. simpson next half hour. there's a lot more to get to, including developments out of washington. there's reports that the white house is trying to turn the tables on the special counsel leading the russia investigation. and president trump is shaking up his legal team. and there's fallout from when the president went after his own
