7:01 am
an abc news exclusive, inside that deadlocked bill cosby jury room. one of the jurors speaking out this morning revealing how close they came to convicting him. incredible details about those tense deliberations, the moment a juror punched a wall and the two people holding out leading to a mistrial. ♪ 24 karat magic george clooney's magic touch from oscar winner to billion dollar businessman, the new dad of twins hitting the jackpot again selling his tequila brand, how he's celebrating the windfall. good morning, america. and the clooney, well, i think they'll be raising a glass or two sometime today. >> i think they can send us a glass or two. that's right, george clooney, he said he's celebrating the selling of his tequila company for a billion dollars by hav
7:02 am
>> i'm glad something good finally happening for george clooney. >> that's true. >> as we were talking about that in the newsroom. also coming up, a lot of news to get to watching tropical storm cindy making landfall just hours ago along the gulf coast. our "gma" storm drone is flying over the region right now. you're looking at mississippi this morning. >> an area i know, oh, too well. our team is spread out monitoring the storm. ginger tracking the system for us and will have the latest in a moment but first let's go to abc's eva pilgrim. she's on the scene there in waveland. good morning, eva. >> reporter: good morning, robin. you know, one of the major concerns with this storm was the flooding in this area. you can see from our live drone there is still water covering the streets here. basically a river running where a road should be. the water surrounding the houses. we talked to some of the homeowners. they were using atvs and bicycles to get down this street when it was too deep for the cars.
7:03 am
tropical storm cindy slamming into the gulf coast overnight. wind reaching 50 miles per hour making landfall near the texas/louisiana border and bringing a massive amount of storm surge. waterspouts forming and coming ashore off mississippi's coast as waves crash in the gulf. the big fear this morning, flooding. the governors of louisiana and alabama declaring a state of emergency, the areas now under tornado threats. high surf drenching rains hammering the coastal region, cars trying to navigate the flooded streets despite the dangers. some drivers having to abandon their cars. >> no one should be under the belief that this is only going to affect coastal louisiana. >> reporter: in alabama a 10-year-old boy tragically killed after storm surge tossed this 200-pound log ashore hitting the child in the head. and in galveston, texas, beach patrol having to rescue several tourists after their vehicle was stuck on the
7:04 am
we've been watching this area rise and fall for the last day. it is apparently going to rise again, high tide is not until about 10:30 but they will be closely watching the rivers in this area to see what happens. david. >> all right. we're thinking about all those fami familys along the gulf. >> that was an area hit so hard by katrina. phillip mena is right in the storm zone in lake charles, louisiana, for us this morning where they're already seeing flooding. good morning, phillip. >> reporter: david, good morning, cindy made landfall just south of us but here in lake charles, we are in the middle of that circulation so the storm is all around us. we're already seeing flooding. this lake is flooding this boat dock so flooding and even possible tornadoes a major concern today. some schools and some businesses are closed today because of it and the governor here in louisiana already declaring a state of emergency, david. >> all right, phillip. thanks to you, as well. let's go over to ginger for the latest
7:05 am
that life-threatening flash flooding moves inland. >> michael, that is exactly the threat so inland meaning all the way to the midsouth which we'll get to. we can see the center of cindy clearly along the louisiana/texas state line. now the eastern bands will still drop flash flood potential but tornado watches in eastern louisiana, southern mississippi, alabama, even the far western part of the florida panhandle. here's the track. it should die out relatively quickly but that doesn't mean it doesn't have a lot of moisture with it. it squeezes against a cold front. that's why western tennessee, southeastern arkansas, all the way through western pennsylvania will see the remnants plus the cold front creating a potential for flash flooding. see the yelchins and green, up to 6 plus inches. robin, we'll track this and the extreme heat in just moments. >> all right, ginger, thank you. also following a lot of major headlines out of washington. senate republicans are just hours away from revealing a draft of their health care bill. after facing scrutiny for drafting it behind closed doors
7:06 am
learn whether or not there are tapes of president trump's conversations with fired fbi director james comey. the white house says there will be an update this week. the president also making headlines overnight at his rally in iowa talking about the border wall with mexico, immigration and health care. for more on the republicans' plan to repeal and replace the affordable care act to mary bruce. >> reporter: good morning. this game of health care hide-and-seek is coming to an end this morning. senate republicans are finally going to be unveiling theirplan to repeal and replace obamacare but after weeks of these closed door negotiation it's already being met with some frustration. overnight the president set expectations. >> i hope we'll surprise you with a really good plan. i've been talking about a plan with heart. i said add some money to it. >> reporter: after weeks of secrecy and protest -- >> do any of you guys have a copy of the
7:07 am
[ chanting "no" ] >> reporter: but already there's frustration on both sides of the aisle. >> i haven't seen it. how can i be behind it if i haven't seen it. >> in my entire career in politic, i never heard of a more radical or a more reckless process. >> reporter: for weeks the bill has been negotiated behind closed doors. even some republicans who are helping write the bill don't know what's in it. >> i haven't seen it yet either. even though i've been a member of this working group among senate republicans. >> reporter: last month the president celebrated when house republicans passed their version. >> that's the group. >> reporter: but later he privately told them the bill was, quote, mean. the senate version is expected to establish a system of tax credits to help americans buy insurance. and gradually roll back the expansion of medicaid but "the washington post" reports it would enact deeper
7:08 am
cuts to the program for low-income americans. reportedly out of the bill, language restricting federally subsidized health plans from covering abortions. another point of contention, the timing. republican leaders are hoping for a vote next week. but with health care for millions of americans on the line, some republican members are asking, what's the hurry? is a week going to be enough time to digest this bill? >> i don't believe so, no. the public needs time to digest it, i need time to digest it. we need to gather genuine input from our constituencies. it will take longer than a week. >> we shouldn't rush it. >> reporter: before they can vote the bill has to be analyzed by the congressional budget office. that's how we'll learn how many americans could stand to lose their coverage and how this bill might impact your premiums. now, republican leaders are hoping that score could come as soon as tomorrow. but, david, of course, any bill that passes here in the senate then has to go back over to the house to be approved all over
7:09 am
far from over. >> not going away any time soon, mary, our thanks to you. the president meanwhile, as you saw in mary's reporting overnight his first trip back there since taking office and spoke for more than an hour at types veering off script. at times a venting session. i want to bring in jonathan karl this morning. jon, in many ways president trump sounded like candidate trump all over but it was what he said about who he wants to lead his economic team and poor people that's making news this morning. >> our great, brilliant business minds and that's what we need. that's what we have to have so the world doesn't take advantage of us. we can't have the world taking advantage of us anymore. and i love all people, rich or poor. but in those particular positions i just don't want a poor person. does that make sense? >> jon, this is a president who campaigned on the forgotten man. what was this all about? was he planning to say
7:10 am
>> reporter: it doesn't appear to be part of the prepared text but this isn't all that different from what he said during the campaign. if you remember, he promised to put what he called wall street killers in his cabinet. he talked about the fact that they made themselves rich, he would put them to work making the country rich and if you look at his cabinet he's followed through on that. this is perhaps the wealthiest cabinet we've ever seen. certainly his economic team. >> as you point out in the campaign as well, he talked about the wall, hillary clinton, crowds chanting "lock her up" but only this about the russian investigation consuming much of washington. listen to this. >> i mean, they have phony witch hunts going against me, they have everything going -- and you know what, all we do is win, win, win. we won last night. they can't believe it. they're saying, what is going on? what is going on? >> reporter: the win last night he was talking about that georgia special election calling it a witch-hunt, jon.
7:11 am
being out of washington. >> reporter: the first time since april we had seen him in one of these campaign-stale rallies clearly enjoying it and spoke for more than an hour and that witch hunt label is now his branding of this investigation. he calls it that over and over again in his tweets, in his speeches. it is a witch-hunt. of course, the interesting thing about that so-called witch-hunt is in the house and senate it is being led by republicans and, of course, the special counsel robert mueller is also a lifelong republican. >> that's not going away any time soon either. jon karl, thank you. want to bring in matt dowd. the president saying all we do is win, win, win, really in one respect he's right, the special election in georgia, the most expensive congressional race ever, the republican winning, the president now 4-0. if democrats are hoping to capitalize they haven't yet. >> as we saw after the november election i don't think either side is learning the right lessons from these election losses or election wins. first, democrats are in a posi
7:12 am
claiming that they're playing well and getting a lot of hits on this but they have to start scoring some runs to prove they can win these elections. i think they need to do two things, figure out the right messenger to deliver the message nationally and at the candidate level but have to have a message that's not personalized towards donald trump. they have to have a message that says, why is what donald trump doing bad for americans especially economically. the second thing, david, is i think republicans better figure out to do some course correction. keep in mind in 2009 when barack obama won the election they had five special elections. the democrats won all five of them and went on to lose the house in 2010. >> all right, we'll see if history is repeated. one quick question on health care. millions of americans finally learn what's in the republican senators' plan. why the secrecy? >> well, you obviously have secrecy because they think they're doing something the american public doesn't want. as if you walk in your living room and kids are trying to hide something under the cushion. you know they did something
7:13 am
problem. >> matt dowd with us this morning. thanks so much for your insight. matt always says it like it is. >> he certainly does. new details about that attacker who stabbed a police officer in michigan wednesday. the fbi is now investigating it as a possible act of terrorism. and that suspect is in custody. abc's alex perez is on the scene for us there in flint with new reporting. good morning, alex. >> reporter: hey, good morning, robin. authorities say the suspect cased the terminal for about 45 minutes coming up this escalator and then stopping at a restaurant and then at a bathroom before attacking the officer who was standing right here. this morning, federal authorities digging into amor ftouhi's past as they search for answers after that attack on lieutenant jeff neville at the bfrn international airport in flint, michigan. the fbi saying they are investigating it as a possible act of terrorism. >> when the subject went up to the officer and stabbed him, he co
7:14 am
made a statement something to the effect of you have killed people in syria, iraq and afghanistan and we are all going to die. >> reporter: about 9:45 a.m. wednesday the calls to 911 start streaming in. >> we have an officer down there, report of a stabbing. >> reporter: authorities say the suspect exited an airport bathroom with a 12-inch amazon jungle survivor knife similar to this one and allegedly ambushed lieutenant neville from behind stabbing him in the neck and back. >> there was a whole bunch of blood everywhere. blood was everywhere and it was crazy. >> reporter: some nearby as the horrifying attack unfolded ju jumping in to help the officer. >> i helped knocked him down and put my foot in his ankle and the other one hold it down. >> reporter: passengers and airport employees evacuated. bomb-sniffing dogs scouring the airport which was completely shut down for some seven hours. the suspect is canadian and due in court o
7:15 am
years behind bars. david. >> alex, thank you. you mentioned he's canadian. authorities searching what is believed to be his home in montreal as suspicions grow about these kind of attacks. pierre, what are you learning about this heightened concern at home and what can law enforcement do to stop it? >> reporter: good morning. in recent months authorities have been sitting on alerts to local law enforcement warning isis is pushing these attacks which a source told me are incredibly difficult to detect beforehand. in part because they're so simple. the source reminded me how someone can get a knife or a vehicle without drawing any suspicions. you just need deadly intentions. isis has stepped up efforts encouraging people following them on social media to attack by any means necessary. while we don't know yet if this suspect in flint was inspired it there is growing concern these low-tech attacks we're seeing happen over and over again are a
7:16 am
>> pierre, thanks so much. we want to turn to amy with the other news this morning starting with a nationwide manhunt. >> a disturbing story. authorities are stenching for the owner of an idaho farm house after the bodies of three women were found in his shed. each had been shot in the head. a motive remains a mystery but police say gerald bullinger should be considered armed and dangerous. he recently moved from utah with his wife who is also now missing. it's unclear if she is among those victims. new video this morning of an american professor held hostage by the taliban. kevin king was kidnapped last summer. this is the first video of him since january. he is pleading for president trump to negotiate his release. we are getting our first look at the moment a national guard pilot ejected from his f-16 fighter jet in houston. his parachute there. the jet caught fire with missiles on board and an investigation is under way to determine what caused a s

during takeoff. then a shocking case of road rage in california. a motorcycle driver kicks a car and cuts off the bike. it loses control hitting the wall and crashing into a truck causing it to flip over. whoo and you know what, with all that video, no serious injuries reported. incredible. >> finally what are your plans for summer vacation. a new poll finds the number one thing americans want to do on their vacations this year is nothing. nothing. that's what robin said, nothing. just chillax. 22% say they'll be able to completely disconnect from their phones or e-mail. i mean, i don't know if you can completely disconnect from phones and e-mail. can you? >> oh, yes, yes. >> that's what i love about robin. >> no issue with that. >> can you? >> no, i definitely -- i spend like one time where i'll check everything but i can't not check. >> here you go. >> you know what i got to say, there's nothing wrong with that.
7:18 am
>> oh, boy. >> zero, nothing. >> but there's good news, an update on congressman scalise injured in that baseball shooting last week in the update is a good one. his condition has been upgraded to fair and also taking a look at this from the capitol police officer crystal griner hurt protecting lives in that shooting. she got a chance to throw out the first pitch at the congressional women's softball game. there she is right there and our own mary bruce played and mary bruce scored the first run. >> yes, she did. there you go, mary, raising money for a breast cancer charity and the journalists beat the congresswomen, 2-1. >> we need mary on our softball team. that is wonderful. back to ginger, wildfires and record heat in the west. >> hundreds of homes evacuated in arizona and that fire south of tucson, this thing has tripled in less than 48 hours and look how expansive. southwest oregon to cor

7:32 am
us on the condition of anonymity said two jurors prevented a guilty verdict. 10 of the 12 agreed cosby was guilty of two of the three counts against him having a sexual encounter with accuser andrea constand without her concept and giving constand drugs without her knowledge to prevent her from resisting but the juror told us they were near acquittal on one account that constand was unconscious during the event. the vote 11-1. when they first entered the room and took a nonbinding preliminary poll the jurors overwhelmingly said they thought cosby was not guilty on all three counts. the hold-outs against finding the 79-year-old intentertainer e not moving no matter what. he says the encounter was consensual although one other accuser was allowed to testify at trial, more than 50 other women have come forward with similar
7:33 am
cosby has also denied those allegations. abc news reached out to several other jurors who declined to comment. but the juror we spoke to tells us despite the fiery exchanges and intense pressure the group of seven men and five women are now friendly and keeping in touch by phone and text. linsey davis, abc news, new york. >> this is really fascinating. let's bring in dan abrams. dan, always great to have you. but this notion that the jurors would enter that room a nonbinding vote all of them saying not guilty then over the course of six days 10 out of the 12 would decide guilty. >> it's typical for jurors to take a straw vote when they come in and say where does everyone stand and everyone sort of raises their hands. that's part of the deliberation process. it's not a binding verdict that's not a ruling and doesn't happen until the verdict form goes in. what's astonishing here is that you had all of them saying not guilty and then as the deliberation process went on 10 -- this is out
7:34 am
this is like "12 angry men" the other way. i've never heard of something like this where 10 of the 12 jurors apparently changed their minds to the point from where they were ready to convict. >> tiny room, not even room to pace, this juror apparently said but fists into walls. this could come up again. >> look, i think that you can expect the defense to file a motion and say, look, they were ready to acquit. if the room hadn't been so terrible and the situation hasn't been so bad, bill cosby would have been acquitted and, therefore, there should be no retrial. they're not going to win on that motion. they'll likely make it but that's not the sort of motion you win on. to win on something like that you have to really show juror misconduct. and even when you show juror misconduct typically what you get is a new trial and he is getting a new trial anyway so really interesting, though, this reporting on this. >> a peek inside tt
