states. abc's alex perez starts us off in wisconsin. good morning, alex. >> reporter: ray, good morning, robin. a lot of the damage happened after dark so many people are just now getting a chance to assess what happened. now, that powerful storm ripped right through this garage tearing down the walls and sucking this big truck out, flipping it over. [ sirens ] >> hurry, tornado. >> reporter: dangerous twisters tearing through the heartland. >> i think it's coming this way. >> reporter: 26 reported tornadoes touching down across four states wednesday from iowa to wisconsin. >> oh, it's hitting the ground now. >> reporter: the storming bringing massive hail. toppling trees and destroying homes. >> this is, you know, fury of nature type of stuff. >> reporter: one family -- >> it hit like that. >> reporter: -- narrowly escaping. this morning the massive cleanup under way.
7:03 am
crews working to clear roads and help those who lost everything. >> just like the world had ended. >> reporter: this as wildfires wreak havoc in the west. more than a dozen structures destroyed in southern utah. >> ask you guys to all leave. >> reporter: the goodwin fire in arizona quadrupling in size on wednesday. firefighters forced to pull back for fear of their safety. so the cleanup here is just getting started. but to complicate things many parts of the midwest today bracing for another round of strong storms. george. >> okay, alex, thanks very much. we want to get more on those wildfires out west. rob marciano has that. >> reporter: 40 of them so expanding this and hot and dry conditions across the intermountain west and red flag warnings still in effect. some of that energy is now in the plains where we got the severe weather yesterday. and that's where we're going to have the severe weather today. a severe thunderstorm watch out for much of northern kansas and a flash flood watch out for kansas city and parts of
7:04 am
today across the plains and tomorrow it's going to actually get into the great lakes and getting closer to the holiday weekend so may impact the plans of our viewers. >> rob, thank you. now to that breaking news. one of the pope's top advisers facing sexual assault charges this morning. cardinal george pell, the highest ranked vatican official ever to face these accusations. our foreign correspondent james longman has that story for us. good morning, james. >> reporter: good morning, robin. yes, a stunning development overnight. the man considered the third highest ranking official in the catholic church is charged with multiple counts of sexual assault. george pell is a senior cardinal from australia and is in charge of vatican finances which makes him a close adviser to the pope. we don't have much detail yet of the allegations but they do go back to his time as a young priest. cardinal pell firing back criticizing what he calls a relentless character assassination adding the whole idea of sexual abuse is abhorrent to me. now, in his official statement he says
7:05 am
his day in court and will defend the charges vigorously. police have instructed him to appear in court on july 19th. as a member of the pope's upper circle this is potentially the biggest scandal to face the current papacy but pope francis indicated his support and given cardinal pell leave in order to face trial. >> the pope has asked everyone including the media to withhold judgment but this is a big test for him. >> reporter: his reaction is going to be under huge scrutiny. many just feel that the vatican has not done enough to deal with this problem. the world will be watching, robin. >> it will, james, thanks. we're following several stories out of washington. senate majority leader mitch mcconnell trying to reach consensus on obamacare repeal hoping for a vote but few signs he's picking up the support he needs. house set to vote on two new bills and president trump will hold his
7:06 am
south korean's president and how to deal with north korea at the top of the agenda. new developments in the russell investigation. one of president trump's closest personal aides is now facing questions. our senior white house correspondent cecilia vega here with the details. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: good morning. this probe is widening. investigators are now looking at the president's inner circle. as you said one of the people they now want to talk to is one of the president's closest aides. he is president trump's longtime former bodyguard turned top white house aide. such close ties he has an office right next to the oval office. and this morning, abc news has learned keith schiller is now on the list of witnesses that house intelligence committee investigators want to talk to as part of their probe into possible ties between team trump and the russians. schiller did not respond to a request for comment. but sources close to the investigation tell abc news people on that witness list have been notified. schiller has known president trump for nearly two decas.
7:07 am
officer who is now director of oval office operations, the president assigning him such tasks as hand delivering the letter to fbi headquarters that told former director james comey he'd been fired. he is rarely heard from publicly. but he is nearly always by the president's side, known for being fiercely protective. during the campaign schiller was seen hitting a protester outside trump tower. >> stop it! >> reporter: he was at the center of this now infamous moment. >> excuse me, sit down. you are weren't called. sit down. >> i have the right to ask the question. >> reporter: after just a look from his boss, it was schiller who ushered univision anchor jorge ramos out of that news conference. >> don't touch me, sir. don't touch me. you cannot touch me. >> reporter: one white house official here tells me they're not surprised to learn schiller's name was on this list, in fact, several white house officials here expect that their names could end up on this list too, george, as this russia probe continues. >> do we have
7:08 am
officials will be? >> reporter: well, george, we're learning a little bit more as this investigation moves forward. we know that investigators want to talk to, for example, the president's son-in-law jared kushner, we know that they want to talk to his longtime friend roger stone. this is essentially a witness list, that's what this is and as this investigation moves forward, more names are being added to it. >> expected to get wider. thanks very much. george, more now on the health care showdown. the senate scrambling to draft a new version by tomorrow before leaving for the july 4th recess. president trump is predicting a great result. mary bruce is tracking it all for us on capitol hill. good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning, robin. well, republican leader mitch mcconnell is hoping to have a revised version by tomorrow but this morning it's still unclear what parts are being tweaked and whether this will be enough to turn some of those no votes into yeses. overnight the president got a harsh greeting as he arrived at his d.c. hotel. [ chanting ] .
7:09 am
he dropped by a fund-raiser for his re-election campaign. as he eyes four more years that promise of his first term to repeal and replace obamacare is stalled on capitol hill. >> health care is working along very well. >> reporter: republican leaders are still optimistic but still facing opposition from within. at least nine senate republicans are opposed to the current bill. not to mention all of the senate democrats. but that's not stopping the president from predicting a surprise victory. >> we could have a big surprise with a great health care package. so now they're happy. >> what do you mean by big surprise? >> i think you'll have a great surprise. >> reporter: the real surprise would be if republicans are able to pull this off. gop senators i've talked with who are still opposed are on the fence say they don't know if they can get it done and if they can't, well, there is growing talk up here of the "b" word. they may have to do a bipartisan deal. robin. >> all right. and also, of course,he
7:10 am
travel ban and know parts will go into effect today. >> reporter: yeah, that's right. part of his travel ban will be going into effect today and comes after the supreme court earlier this week finally upheld some parts of the ban. >> thank you. > more from our chief white house correspondent jon karl. let's begin with the russia investigation. now reaching deeper and wider into the white house. this is still very much the beginning as it continues to grow, much more difficult for the white house to wall off the investigation from the rest of their work. >> reporter: and it's cast a shadow over the entire west wing. the fact that schiller is now on that witness list is a reminder that virtually all of the president's senior aides at some point are going to be touched by this investigation. even those who aren't even accused of any wrongdoing whatsoever will have to come in, testify. that means it's going to take time, a distraction and, george, legal bill, lots of legal bills, a shadow not just over the current senior staff but those they want to bring in who are
7:11 am
whether or not they want to be dragged that this. >> i lived through that in the '90s. even when you're just a witness it costs you a fair amount of money, could be even tens of thousands of dollars. let's talk about health care. a lot of new polls coming out showing how weak that senate bill s a couple up now. three new polls all showing support for the republicans' health care bill, one as low as 12 according to "usa today" will make mcconnell's job so much more difficult. >> reporter: absolutely and another recent poll from fox news which has the number a little bit higher at 27% approval rating for the republican plan but look at this, george. 52%, a majority of the country now saying in that fox news poll they view obamacare possley. so it's a tough political environment here. they still believe they have a chance to get this passed. but they really need to come to an agreement at least in the outlines of what the bill will finally be to get those wavering republicans on board b
7:12 am
surprise. any idea what he's talking about? >> reporter: i think the surprise he's talking about is winning, is victory on this bill. getting this bill passed in the senate and, george, at this point that would be a surprise. >> it would be a surprise. meantime, the president is meeting with the south korean president tonight. it comes as his national security adviser suggests the president asked him to draw up new military options to take on north korea. >> reporter: that's right. the president himself has asked for the options and it's a much more difficult challenge now because the north koreans as their missile program has advanced, they can now launch missiles with a much shorter setup so much less time to react so what the president has told his national security team is that he wants a new set of options including military options which they, of course, hope it will never come to because there are no really -- there is no good military option on the korean peninsula. >> none at all. okay, jon karl, thanks very much. george, we have more now on the new
7:13 am
affecting thousands of flights heading to the u.s. the department of homeland security announcing enhanced screening for passengers and electronics. abc's david kerley has the details and, david, this morning the airlines are warning this could, of course, lead to significant delays. >> reporter: they're talking about that and actually how much it will cost as well, robin. this is all about terrorists who learned how to put explosives in electronic devices and sneak them through security. the u.s. was considering expanding the laptop ban. instead they're requiring much tighter security from any airline that wants to fly into the u.s. overnight airlines grumbling about the new stricter screening requirements the u.s. is demanding for any jet headed to america. passengers will see more dog units, explosives swabbing and new high-tech scanning machines in foreign airports. the fear terrorists have learned to hide them in electronic devices. we saw it in africa. >> our enemies are c
7:14 am
disguising explosive, recruiting insiders and hijacking aircraft. >> reporter: the u.s. is basically setting a new global standard for airport screening. rather than expanding that laptop ban on eight middle eastern and eight african nations and so it will have to be used by every airline flying to the u.s. that covers 280 airports, 180 airlines, 2,000 flights and 325,000 passengers a day. >> al qaeda and isis bombmakers have spent considerable time seeking to better understand airport security and find ways to build bombs that can get past it. >> reporter: while the international airline association hopes to minimize the cost to airlines, the u.s. airline association says, there should have been more consultation to avoid operational disruptions which it says are likely. now, the airlines are being given a few weeks to implement some of these new restrictions. and a few months for others. their kind of complaining i
7:15 am
>> what about the laptop ban already in effect at some airports? >> reporter: yeah, dhs, homeland security is saying if those airlines and those airports can meet these new higher standards they're going to lift the laptop ban on those airports and airlines. >> interesting, all right, david, thank you. we turn to an investigation into what set off an explosion at a college dorm in kentucky. as you can see much of the building at murray state university was gutted. a university employee who was injured is thankfully in stable condition. no students were inside because it's summer break. authorities say a preliminary investigation indicates a gas leak may be to blame investigating whether foul play was involved. we move to a major development in that case that made national headlines last year when orred protesters occupied a national wildlife refuge. an fbi agent is now facing charges accused of lying about the deadly encounter. clayton sandell is in denver with the story. good morning, clayton. >> reporter: and good morning, george. the fb t
7:16 am
no longer working on the bureau's elite hostage rescue team. he's been reassigned after a shooting he says didn't happen. this morning an alleged lie and an fbi agent facing criminal charges. >> you want my blood on your hands? >> reporter: stemming from this attempt to arrest robert "lavoy" finicum during a takeover at a wildlife refuge. they flee and nearly hit a roadblock. that's when investigators say fbi agent w. joseph astarita fires twice missing him as he gets out his hands up a bullet tearing through the truck. but astarita, a member of the fbi's elite hostage rescue team, allegedly told investigators he never pulled the trigger. >> the actions of the fbi hrt in this case damaged the integrity of the entire law enforcement profession. which makes me both disappointed and angry. >> reporter: seconds later
7:17 am
saying he reached for a gun. finicum's wife says my husband was shot in the back three times and should have been afforded his own due process before they killed him. >> the cover-up is worse than the crime because the agent would not have been prosecuted for taking a shot if he felt that that vehicle driven by finicum was a danger to the public. >> reporter: now what is still not clear is why astarita allegedly lied. prosecutors say that will come out in court. the agent faces five felony counts in all and pleaded not guilty. >> five counts. there were other members of the team. what's going on with them? >> reporter: yeah, that's right. there were four other members of the team who were there. the sheriff who investigated the case says the fbi told him that those agents were not disciplined. the sheriff says that is disappointing, george. >> okay, clayton, thanks very much. back to rob for more on those conditions fueling the fires out west. >> george, all those lush hillsides from all that rain this past winter across

of those billion. first we begin with that startling confession from a former nfl star. redskins running back clinton portis earning more than $40 million on the gridiron but life after football led to bankruptcy and almost drove him to murder. jesse palmer is here with that story. good morning, jess. >> good morning. with more than 2,000 carries over nine seasons he signed what was then the largest contract for a running back in nfl history. but just a year after his retirement, he found himself drowning in so much financial trouble that he was considering murder. once a star nfl running back for the washington redskins -- >> touchdown. >> reporter: -- he rushed straight into a $43 million fortune he displayed on "cribs." >> you like the shower. here's a good shower. >> reporter: in a new "sports illustrated" article, portis revealing the life of luxury all came crashing down in
7:32 am
he filed for bankruptcy of his fury turning on his former business advisers getting so upset he says he was ready to take the life of one of 9 men who he says mismanaged his money. portis went so far as to wait for the man outside a d.c. office building, gun in hand. >> he thought that they had taken away his ability to poi for his family and felt that they were not paying any consequences for that. he felt for those few nights that he would have to take it into his own hands. >> reporter: the 35-year-old revealing he was talked off the ledge by a friend who told him over the phone to turn his car around saying you've already lost but the loss you would sustain by killing someone would be greater. >> his friend reminded him of his sons, of his family, of the people who loved him and that he had so much to lose. >> reporter: edge rein james, the former colts star said the 35-year-old was too generous plunking down credit cards for strangers and supporting too many friends and family. portis says the

7:34 am
until it's your own situation, you don't learn. >> i'm not even going to begin to list the many athletes and the many different sports leagues. what can the leagues, can they do anything? should they be doing more to help? >> right now i'd say they need to back off because and this is a weird thing. the nfl has an nfl financial adviser program. that's through the union and the whole idea about this was let's help them and say these are the financial advisors that we approve through our program. the problem is that some of these financial advisers have been the same guys that are part of this fraud. so they say, okay, let's look at the list of people who are approved by the nfl p.a., by the players union and those guys are using that as an opportunity -- maybe they've never done fraud before but now they're using it as an opportunity to say, hey, we're approved and now the players will kind of -- there's the aaffirmation so i think it's very tough. i think the players have to say, never sign over power of

we are back with that close encounter in colorado where a woman pulled into her garage, came face-to-face with a black bear. there it is. t.j. holmes with the video. >> hey there, this video is a little scary at times. fascinating. even funny when you hear some of her commentary. i want you to keep in mind this bear is essentially signing its own death warrant because it's displaying behavior in which it's so unfazed by human beings that wildlife officials consider it too great of a risk. >> aagh. oh, my -- >> reporter: this is the moment danielle back trom realized she has an uninvited guest. >> kind of open my door and the bear was right there. freakin' bear, get out of my garage. >> reporter: she just pulled into her colorado garage tuesday when this
7:40 am
followed her inside. at one point it even climbs up on her car and starts sniffing around. >> shoo, bear, shoo. >> i quickly hop back in my car, keys are in there, i roll up the window as fast as i can. >> reporter: the mom tries to scare it off and makes some noise, even tries to nudge it out by backing up the car. the bear barely even notices as you can see in her car's rear view camera. >> i can't go because there's a bear behind me. come on, bear. move. >> reporter: the bear eventually runs away. she calls wildlife authorities to report the sighting. >> go away, bear. oh, my god. >> reporter: officials think the bear is the same one seen here just one day earlier eating ice cream from a nearby garage. they say this video highlights a growing problem. >> it's not cute. it's eating my ice cream. >> reporter: that by leaving food so easily accessible the bears forget to fear humans
7:41 am
the repercussions could be deadly. >> this bear has clearly learned that people can provide food and that garages are a place that it can find food and unfortunately when that happens, you know, it can make the situation dangerous. >> we see some of these close encounters and we play them, again, the woman was kind of funny. this is a serious matter to wildlife officials. that bear was about 400 pounds. it should be around 120 and 300. it's clear it's not eating out in its natural environment. people are leaving out and it's eating things it shouldn't be eating. this is one of the keys. you have to keep a wild animal wild and do it by making sure you put things up and animals can't get to the stuff around your house. >> makes sense. >> thank you. coming up, the "fast and furious" series heading for a roadblock? one of its stars now threatening to quit and we'll tell you why next.

week of filming last year, dwayne "the rock" johnson taking to facebook expressing his loyalty to his female co-stars touting their professionalism on set calling them always amazing. as for rodriguez, she's hoping her star power can turn the wheels of change. and there are a lot of people rooting for her this morning. rodriguez explaining in a recent interview that the imbalance of power weighs heavily on her mind not just because of her role but the diminished roles of other female actresses in the franchise and says the only leverage i have as an individual is my participation. as an actor that's your leverage. >> it is. she wasn't specific in what her concerns were. what do you think. >> i'm not surprised. she's not going to start saying i need seven more lines but the interaction she finds
7:48 am
embarrassing. the times they speak to each other about something other than a man and this movie fails that. she's been in it with 16 years with another character and the times she's said something to her is five times. the fact of the matter is these movies can change. they're not just testosterone parades. "wonder woman" being a case in point. starring in the "fast and furious" franchise, it's a great idea and i think she's put the studio and filmmakers on their heels. >> what would happen if she left? >> i don't want to say conclusively but probably not much. paul walker who was one of the co-stars died in 2013 and the now movies are making more money than they've ever made. this wouldn't be just about her character leaving but about the circumstances of her character leaving. all this attention now being paid. if she walks away from the franchise because the filmmakers in her mind were unwilling or unable to give meaningful roles

kind of comic book settings that's not a good thing. >> you bring up "wonder woman" and that's a good point. it wasn't just a powerful female cast but the director as well. you would think hollywood would want to jump on a bandwagon. it was a huge success in the box office. >> more successful than a number of other superhero flips that have done quite well. there was unbelievable pressure on "wonder woman." patty jenkins, the director and filmmaker talked about the unbelievable pressure she felt in making this film a success. the fact that it was successful means very likely we're going to see a sequel and pore follow because we know now there is interest. if there are consumers there will be films for them. >> but you point to a broader issue here. "usa today" has a statistic in the paper, 149 movies coming out next year. 92% are directed by men. the fact of the matter is it is -- >> 92. >> incredibly male dominated business and while there is success in this particular franchise, i think michelle rodriguez is being very smart. she's not going to have this podium forever.
7:50 am
franchise forever. >> seems like she's using it for something beyond money. >> talking about the way women are portrayed in the film. there are women in the films like charlize theron and helen mirren has joined the cast so there's some consciousness of that but she says just because these are kind of action movies and what takes place is a fantasy it doesn't mean portrayals of women can be equally as simplistic. >> it's how they're portrayed. thank you both very much. dwayne johnson giving us a sneak peek at the brand-new "jumanji."
