7:04 am
bands. the frigid temperatures won't be around for two long by the beginning of next week and the midwest should see normal temperatures once again. >> thank you, linzie. stay inside and be careful if you're out on the roads. we move on to growing calls for alabama senate candidate roy moore to drop out of his race after "the washington post" reported he had sexual conduct with a 14-year-old girl when he was in his 30s. three other women came forward saying moore pursued relationships with them when they were teenagers as well and the charges exploded across capitol hill but moore is defiant and our chief national correspondent tom llamas is in birmingham with the latest. good morning, tom. >> reporter: george, good morning to you. that's right. overnight roy moore on twitter saying he will fight on and that the forces of evil will lie and here in birmingham, caller after caller on both a.m. and f.m. radio stations expressing support for moore wondering if it's a dirty political trick. this as abc news has spoken to nearly every woman mentioned in that "the washington post" article and all of them tell
7:05 am
this morning, the republican party reeling over accusations their senate candidate from alabama, roy moore, allegedly molested a 14-year-old girl and pursued other teenage girls when he was in his 30s. >> it's a devastating nasty story. if the revelations, if that's true, i don't believe that there would be any place for him in the senate. >> reporter: "the washington post" speaking to four women including leigh corfman now 53. she says she was 14 when moore then an assistant district attorney took her to his home and told the payment he took off her shirt and pants and removed his clothes. he touched her over her bra and underpant, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear. she says she remembers thinking, i wanted it over with. i wanted out. corfman's mother who learned about the incident years later confirmed her daughter's account to abc news.
7:06 am
conservative christian and former alabama chief justice. >> homosexual conduct should be illegal. >> reporter: he became a hero to some when he refused to remove a ten commandments monument from a judicial building and as a senate candidate had a far right platform. >> crime, corruption, immorality, abortion, sodomy, sexual perversion sweep our land. >> reporter: now moore may be losing gop support. >> the president also believes if these allegations are true, judge moore will do the right thing and step aside. >> reporter: at least ten republican lawmakers have said moore should step down'allegations are true. moore has denied the accusations calling them completely false and a desperate political attack. and some are still standing by him. an alabama politician telling "the washington examiner," take joseph and mary, mary was a teenager and joseph was an adult carpenter. they became parents of jesus. steve bannon one of moore's
7:07 am
story as a hit piece. >> but it's interesting, the bezos amazon "washington post" that dropped that dime on donald trump is the same bezos amazon "washington post" that dropped the dime this afternoon on judge roy moore. >> reporter: sean hannity saying this on his show. >> there is no sexual -- there's kissing involved and then they're saying this one encounter -- >> and consensual. >> reporter: hannity later said he misspoke. that he didn't mean the 14-year-old gave consent. but he still questioned the timing of the allegations coming just weeks before the december 12th election. >> it is morally repug annapolis, it has no place in our society. here's the thing, in any of these cases, it is sometimes you have to look at the truth here. how do we ascertain what happened 38 years ago? >> reporter: now, moore and his supporters are describing all of this as a plot
7:08 am
destroy moore but "the washington post" says they spoke with more than 30 people during the time of those allegations and that 14-year-old girl who had the relationship at the time who is now older says that she's voted for republicans and recently even voted for president trump. george. >> you're right, tom. you had four women on the record, 30 sources overall. going to bring this to mary bruce on capitol hill. mary, this really hit like a bomb in the middle of the day yesterday for senate republicans and now you've got some senate republicans also saying moore should get out no matter what but there is no way to right now get him off the ballot and it's a real dilemma for them. they might lose the seat or face the question of what they do with him if he wins. >> reporter: yeah, george, this puts republicans in an incredibly tricky position. the condemnation for moore from the hill is swift and resounding. almost immediately republicans said these allegations are disturbing and disqualifying. now, this seat is crucial to republicans for maintaining their slim
7:09 am
moore shows no signs of backing down and too late to replace him on the ballot. if he does win, it's unclear how republicans here would interact with him. how they would work with him but it is clear moore would receive a very chilly reception here on the hill. >> puts even more pressure on them to get this tax bill done before this race takes place, before whoever wins is seated right now at the time when you have huge differs between the senate and house bills. >> reporter: yeah, george, this is another real political dilemma here. major differences between the house and senate plan including how they could impact middle class americans and add to the deficit. ham aring this out will be a real challenge and republicans know they cannot head home for the holidays empty-handed. >> mary bruce, thanks very much. there are also new developments now in the russia investigation. this morning we are learning more about why former trump campaign adviser george papadopoulos lied to the fbi about his russia contacts. his motive a mystery until now.
7:10 am
correspondent brian ross is here with those new details. good morning. >> reporter: the conviction of george papadopoulos for lying to the fbi was the first major break in the russia investigation and this morning, we're learning it was an apparent case of blind loyalty to protect donald trump. according to a person with direct knowledge, george papadopoulos says he lied to agents so he wouldn't contradict what donald trump had been saying publicly about his campaign's contacts with russia. >> it's all fake news. it's phony stuff. it didn't happen. >> reporter: and this directly to abc's cecilia vega. >> did you or anyone in your campaign have any contact with russia leading up to or during the campaign? >> no, not at all. >> nothing at all? >> reporter: two weeks later george papadopoulos tried to stick to the official line saying his contacts with russia occurred before he joined the trump campaign. when, in fact, they occurred after
7:11 am
papadopoulos as part of his team. and the person with knowledge of the investigation says papadopoulos is upset the man he tried to protect is now trying to distance himself as with this presidential tweet. few people knew the young, low level volunteer named george who has already proven to be a liar. >> you know, you're a senior foreign policy adviser until you do something that exposes the connections of the campaign. >> reporter: it turns out papadopoulos, the so-called low level volunteer was traveling the world during the campaign on his own introducing himself as a trump adviser. this was papadopoulos in athens with the president of greece in may of last year. big news in that country. in september he met with midlevel officials at the british foreign office in london. and later met with israeli settlers both in washington and israel. the group posting this video of papadopoulos describing trump's new policies. >> we're looking forward to ushering i
7:12 am
between the united states and all of israel. >> we're told papadopoulos has told investigators he reported back to his superiors in the campaign about all of his travels. >> all right, brian, we now know trump's former bodyguard keith schiller told congress this week trump rejected an offer of prostitutes in moscow back in 2013. >> that's right, amy. the longtime bodyguard and confidant knocked down allegations in that dossier prepared for the clinton campaign that trump spent time with prostitutes saying he thought the offer of some women was a joke and he rejected it and did not even mention it to trump until hours later. >> this investigation moving fast. we've already learned robert mueller has talked to one of the president's closest policy advisers, stephen miller. >> the most senior member of the circle. he played an important role in crafting a defense for trump's decision to fire fbi director james comey. >> a lot of time with the president that fateful weekend. let let's bring it to jon karl. this always happens to
7:13 am
a lot of news breaks at home and have this news miller and schiller have been investigated by mueller. >> reporter: yeah, now the president's legal team says this is just a matter of the special counsel getting to the end of the investigation there offering to cooperate completely but, george, i spoke to somebody very close to the president who speaks to the president closely who said he's very concerned that we have now entered a new phase of the mueller investigation where those that are going in are in the innermost circle. we have schiller, that was the president's bodyguard, that was the president's director of oval office operations until very recently. obviously you mentioned steven miller top policy adviser coming in later this month, the communications director, one of the first on the campaign trail. the concern this is a new and much more perilous phase
7:14 am
investigation. >> yeah, we also know he talked to reince priebus and sean spicer. this happened as the president talked about possibly meeting with russian president vladimir putin today. that not going to happen? >> reporter: this is strange, george. we've heard the president himself say he expected it would happen. today the president's press secretary say there would be no meeting. perhaps a chance encounter where they would bump into each other and say hello then we heard from the kremlin spokesman pesko 1r6peskov saying one way or another there will be a meeting between the two. >> a question about whether the white house will be able to stand by this if true defense on roy moore. >> reporter: the president, the statement again that came through the press secretary said if true, judge moore will do the right thing and step down so not even a call for him to step
7:15 am
and obviously as you mentioned you have the witnesses that have come out and have the women that have come out. there's not going to be a definitive answer on this before the election. >> jon karl in vietnam, thanks very much. michael. >> thank you. this morning we're learning more about what may have sparked that encounter between senate rand paul and his neighbor that left the senator with six broken ribs. steve osunsami is in bowling green with new reporting. good morning, steve. >> reporter: good morning to you, michael. politically these two men couldn't be further apart and friends of the senator believe that's why his neighbor lost it but homeowners we talked with say this argument was probably over something much more simple. >> commonwealth versus rene boucher. >> reporter: dr. rene boucher, u.s. senator rand paul's neighbor seen in court is out on bond this morning ordered to stay at least 200 feet away from the lawmaker. >> yes, sir. >> reporter: he is accused of attacking the senator last friday and breaking six of the senator's ribs. he is pleading
7:16 am
police say he's already admitted to tackling his famous neighbor. people who live here tell us what happened in the grass between their homes can be summed up in two word, yard rage. paul is famous for mowing his own lawn and posting pictures to prove it and he's equally famous according to some neighbors for not bagging all his leaves. >> i mean, they had a big spat, quarreling and that would not have surprised me. >> reporter: jim skaggs built this exclusive gated community in kentucky and says the two men have argued about their lawns over the years. >> it sounds like you believe this is more about leaves and tree limbs than about politics. >> it would seem to me that would make more sense. it really doesn't make a lot of sense at all. that you would be this violent over a leaf. >> reporter: the retired anesthesiologist had at one point been trying to sell his home and move to florida. these are
7:17 am
the listings. he could now spend up to a year in jail if convicted. >> they got into a disagreement and it ultimately resulted in my client being charged with fourth degree assault. i can assure you that he wished it never had happened. >> reporter: just to underline these two men are doctors and this could get more serious. the fbi is now talking to both the senator and local authorities. there is the possibility here of federal charges. michael. >> thank you, steve. as you said makes no sense at all. >> not over yet. guess what, i have some big news for iphone users. take a look. we have been seeing it that weird symbol that popped up if you updated the phone changing your i to an a and a question mark in a box. the glitch making a lot of people crazy

is great to have you here. this movie, we've had mark was on, will was on. >> that's right. >> mel was on. >> yeah, and you saved the best for last. >> we saved the best for last. but "daddy's home 2," the biggest thing about the movie, everybody talks about the kissing scene between you and will. the back story to this. >> right there in the script. the first time i read it, i laughed then. i laughed when i did it and everybody is laughing now. it's -- you immediately see what this movie is as soon -- at least my character and will and me, you know, he did his seven years on "snl." i did my six years in "3rd rock." there's nothing we haven't done. we both of us gave up shame long ago. >> mark said he was egging you on to hold the kiss a little bit longer. >> that's right. he was teases on me, ragging on me, finally i chased him all over the airport. i had
8:33 am
he was mortified. >> so is your character at all close to you in real life? are you a nurturing loving -- i don't think you're kissing on the mouth like that. >> never kissed my sons on the mouth, no. >> but are you -- >> glad we got that on the record. >> you seem like you're a smoosh. >> i'm sloppy, sentimental. i'm a big pushover. i drive my wife crazy because she's always the bad cop. but, you know, i'm not nearly as excessive as don whitaker, but i'm more him than mel. >> let's see don whitaker in action. >> uncle thomas -- >> went. >> tiptoeing. >> into. >> the bar stable. >> where were you going with that. this all took place. at the pancake breakfast ♪ 56 bottles of beer on the
8:34 am
>> georgia license plate. >> quiet game. >> i can't do it! [ applause ] >> that was the product of about a half an hour long improvisation. i just sat in the back of the car and improvised ridiculous car games with mel rolling his eyes. no one rolls his eyes like mel gibson. >> you've been in so many great tv shows and movies. i mean we've seen you in so many incredible roles, but we hear you actually have a guilty pleasure that involves one of your old shows, care to share. >> oh, yes, i watch "3rd rock" reruns. >> me too. it's the greatest show. >> that's mine. [ applause ] i don't know. it's my little guilty pleasure. the amazing thing is it's been almost 20 years no
8:35 am
>> wow. >> and i have a forgotten them all. i always thought i remembered them all. turns out i remember about 15 of them and there were 138 so i watch them and it's like seeing them for the first time and they're hilarious. >> none of us can forget your winston churchill. congratulations. >> thank you, george. >> so good. so powerful. and now you're coming back to broadway too. tell us about that. >> that's right. i'm doing a solo show called "stories by heart" that i actually devised about nine years allege at lincoln center and i've been doing it all across the country. i've been to about 35 cities by now. it's a sort of auto biographical and biographical piece about my dad, the main character in is a big fat book that he used to read stories to me and my siblings when we were kids and i use the same book to read to him when he was old. >> a different kind of daddy stor
8:36 am
i hadn't even realized until this morning it's two daddy pieces in a row, "daddy's home 2" and "stores by heart." you got to come see it. i'm very proud of that. >> can't wait to sea that and can't wait too see "daddy's home 2" in theaters today. it is going to be fantastic. thank you for coming in right now. >> do you work here, man? can you get out of the way. i can't see the desk. i can't help you. 00. >> dude, i just came in from california. i need help to see the desk. >> i said i can't help -- >> okay, no worries, everyone. in case you haven't guessed that was our social experiment.

we are back now with on "gma" with veterans day because it is tomorrow and the first ever theatrical documentary filmed and directed by an active duty soldier chaplain justin roberts is premiering today called "no greater love" following them in afghanistan and the problems they mace transitioning back to civilian life. won multiple awards. you can see "no greater love" in select cities nationwide right for majority of the area. - cold & blustery today - sunshine returns! - near record lows overnight. first freeze. - sunny & cold veterans day - 50s sunday through next week today: sunny. cold & blustery. highs: 41-44
8:40 am
mph tonight: clear and cold. near record lows. hard freeze. lows: 19-26 wi all right. lara, michael, time to head up to you. >> all right, ginger, thank you very much. you know it's been an unprecedented three months of disasters and throughout it all our partners at the red cross have mobilized 17,000 disaster workers and opened hundreds of shelters and partnered with them during our day of giving to raise $15 million for victims of hurricane harvey. now american red cross's regional ceo josh lockwood is here to talk about disaster that is can happen to anyone at any time. this stat terrified me. home fires claim more lives than all natural disasters combined. >> yeah, lara, thanks, seven americans die every day in home fires and 36 more are injured. we at the red cross are sounding the alarm about home fires so we can save lives. we're going into
8:41 am
communities with fire departments and local partners and we're installing free smoke alarms and at the same time we sit down with families and we develop fire escape plans. those two things alone can reduce the risk of death by 50%. >> that's what we are partnering on right now. >> yeah so we've gone into over 400,000 homes and we just hit this incredible milestone. we installed our 1 millionth free smoke alarm at the red cross. >> that's awesome. thank you. [ applause ] >> and i am here with lieutenant anthony mancuso, fdny and you have other brave firefighters with you and we'll talk about fire safety things. i think we have smoke detectors here. what do we need to know. >> the first thing is every family should have a working smoke and carbon mo knox identify alarm. this is a battery type. make sure you change them twice a year when you change the clock. you want to test them once a month. we'll test them right now.
8:42 am
know what is they sound like. that's what's going to wake you up, get you going before the fire gets bad. you want to change them. new technology, as of 2014, there's a ten-year sealed alarm. you could put this in, no battery to change, ten-year alarm, 65,000 of these were donated by the fdny foundation to the red cross and they had their volunteers put them in. everyone should have a working plan. have a meeting place. know where you're going. two ways out. no what type of building you live in. >> with your kids as in this sign and continue to reiterate that. don't wait until they start beeping and still too lazy to change them. we have space heaters here and you hear about so many fires started from space heaters. what's the safest way to use split when using one, number one you want to keep anything flammable at the very least three feet away from the space heater at all times. you always want to make sure you put the space heater on and w
8:43 am
once you go to sleep you want to turn that off. shouldn't be running all night while sleeping. when you plug it in make sure you plug it in directly to the wall outlet. don't use extension cords or power strips. >> for those cooks out there grease fires as well what is the best way to put out a grease fire. >> several ways to deal w keep in mind cooking fires are the number one reason we have fires in our home. to deal with it obviously you want to take the air away from the fire. fire does need air in order to sustain itself. baking soda will work well on that grease fire. you'll put it on, with an oven mitt you will direct that baking soda into that pan, creates a film and the fire is gone. of course, something as simple as covering it. that will take the air away. also --s if [ applause ] one thing we should realize, michael, quickly, one thing we should realize, the one thing you never put on a coo
8:44 am
that will extend it. make it that much worse. >> thank you guys so much. we appreciate all that information. and coming up next take a look at this again. this right here. that's our social experiment that happened just moments ago. you got to see what our audience
8:45 am
8:46 am
welcome back to "gma." earlier our audience and all of you witnessed air stage altercation between two actors in our studio but as you probably guess the by now there was more to that altercation than met the eye. we asked do you remember exactly what happened when it comes to solving a crime, eyewitness testimony is key, but just how reliable is it? we're about to find out. take a look. >> the faces that landed behind bars for a crime they didn't commit. some of the thousands who were wrongfully convicted of a crime based on
8:47 am
crimes are fast so witnesses have a limited opportunity to be able to see the perpetrator. >> roughly one-third of cases in which a person was wrongfully convicted of a crime and later cleared of all charges is due to what experts call mistaken eyewitness identifications. that's when a witness gets it wrong about who the perpetrator is and what happened. >> can you get out of the way? >> reporter: this morning we put the accuracy of the eyewitness to test in a live social experiment. our audience wintering a staged altercation on set. what do they remember and what actually happened? it's more than meets the eye. now the results revealed live. >> and we are joined now by security analyst evy poumpouras. evy, thanks for joining out. it was eye opening. we know the innocence project, 70% of convictions overturned by dna evidence were based on unreliable eyewitness testimony. why do they get it wrong so often.
8:48 am
event or you're having this stress response and adrenaline kicks in so when you're watching it you're hyper focused on what is happening, the action, not paying attention to the description of the clothing or description of the person's face which is why so many people get it wrong. >> so, audience, we want to see just how much you remember about the incident that took place a short while ago. grab your clickers and ask a series of three multiple choice questions about what happened so click in your best answer so the question we first asked was the perpetrator wearing glasses? click a, b or a. "a" is yes, "b" is no and "c," not sure. and the results, look at that. we've got "b," 91% which is true. no glasses so they got it right. >> we have reliable eyewitnesses. [ applause ] >> but if you notice we did have a couple of people who actually did click that yes the perpetrator was wearing glasse
8:49 am
trance posing. it's a source confusion where you're literally take the accessories and clothing from one person and transpose them onto the other person. sometimes it happens with victims. they'll actually confuse the clothing and description from a perpetrator on to a person who was actually come to help them afterwards. >> right, because sometimes it's not just ten minutes later it's a day later or a week later and memories get confused. our second question. what color was the perpetrator's hair? click in your answers, a, dark brown, b, light brown, c, black or d, dirty blond and we have the results in right now. so they're still growing but if looks like a, dark brown is going to win it and that is -- >> yeah, that is true. so what's interesting though, we had some people -- >> good job, audience. >> but some picked the last choice which was light blond. excuse me, dark blond went with that situation when people don't know what to pick they default
8:50 am
to their last choice, also hair -- >> really. >> we don't know what to pick it's always the last choice, d. air color is subjective so, for example, i have very light hair color. when i see somebody with brown hair i may interpret that as dark brown or black whereas you have darker hair so you might -- >> yes, i do. >> you might look at somebody's hair colorly differently. >> our third question, what was the age of the perpetrator? a, 29, b, 36, c, 42, or d, 51. so click in your answers. and is it looked like most people think he was a, 29. but i believe the real answer is -- >> we're actually not going to say the real answer yet because we want to share something else afterward. let's talk about age for a moment. when somebody is closer to us in age we are more accurate at describing that person's age. when we are farther apart from that person in age we are less accura
8:51 am
you could argue that some people -- i guess because i'm argue, 29, 36, all looks the same. i don't know. we also -- police lineups a key component and we have one of our own and bring them out right now. >> ah. okay, everybody, take a good look. and then we want to know if you can identify the person involved in the incident, click a, b, c, d or e for none of the above. >> ooh. all right. most people are going with e, none of the above. >> yeah, so that is correct. because the situation is -- [ applause ] >> you guys are good. >> yes, but we do have some people who picked other choices so this is what happens in these situations with police lineups. sometimes a person feels compelled that they feel lik
8:52 am
the lineup and because of that they end up choosing someone that sometimes is not even there. >> all right. so what's the big takeaway from this experiment. >> the big takeaway, if you are somewhere and you see something just be a good witness. remember what we just discussed today. try to remember what you're seeing and all those descriptions will really help law enforcement. >> don't feel compelled to give an answer if you don't know. >> yes, you can say i don't know and that's honest. sometimes the brain actually plugs in information for us and we say we're not sure if it's truth or if it's false so if you don't know just say i'm not sure. >> i wonder what difference it would have made. the audience did do quite well but the fact we also showed the incident again a little bit. and there was a fairly short period of time in it was, yes, so you have time to think about how long it takes police to get to an event, sometimes many -- in minutes, maybe it's an hour or couple of hours before they interview someone. >> so the audience, most of the audience believed the perpetrato
8:53 am
>> actual age was 42 of the perpetrator. >> how big of a difference does that make when police are looking for someone. >> it can be. they're looking at someone in their 40s versus someone in their late 20s. >> one of the other things we saw working, it seemed like some of the witnesses were interested in what was going up on the board. can you be influenced by other people? >> yes, you can be and also influenced by other people. when you interview people you want to isolate people anticipate don't want them listening to the answers of somebody else and the way police can ask a question you can influence someone's answer as well. >> really interesting. thank you so much, evy and turing technologies for providing us with our survey soft ware. cub scribe to abc podcast "murderer orchard street." watch the entire series on street. where is the
