good evening. tonight new details about the radical young married couple who walked into a pizza parlor this weekend, ambushing and killing two police officers at point blank range. we're now learning more about who they were and the possible warning signs that this was no ordinary husband and wife. here's abc's ryan owens on their mission to start a revolution and the message they left behind. >> we have two officers down. we're performing cpr on both of them at this time. >> reporter: those two police officers never saw it coming. how could they? a sunday ambush by a young las vegas couple heavily armed and hellbent on murdering police. tonight, those faces of hate. cop killers jerad and amanda miller. he was 31. she just 22. their spree would leave three innocent people dead, a community stunned, and that question. why? >> we believe that they equate
12:41 am
government and law enforcement fascism and those who support it with nazis. >> reporter: at 11:22 sunday morning the millers ambushed those two police officers at this pizza restaurant as they ate lunch. they executed both men. then draping their bodies with a "don't tread on me flag," pinning a swastika on them and a note that read "the revolution has begun." >> i saw the gun in their hand, and he just told me to tell the cops that it was a revolution. >> reporter: the couple didn't stop there. they took the officers' guns and ran to this walmart. >> a whole bunch of people start running toward the back, like the main exit, or the emergency exit. >> reporter: five minutes later at 11:27 they shot and killed an armed civilian who confronted them. then as police moved in the couple carried out a suicide pact. amanda shot her husband several times, then shot herself in the head. the couple's postings on social media are filled with second
12:42 am
amendment patriot rants against what they call a fascist government. the southern poverty law center tracks that sort of speech online. >> the patriot movement has grown absolutely explosively in the four or five years since barack obama came on the political scene in this country. >> reporter: in the days before the rampage miller posted a series of comments on his facebook page indicating that in order to restore freedom to the united states the best men would strike for a free and just world with our blood, sweat, and tears as payment. he also said there is no greater cause to die for than liberty. "i will willingly die for liberty." >> clearly, he felt that the war against the government had begun. people who inhabit these groups by and large are very, very angry. the vast majority of them are not going to go out and murder police officers. but there's a pretty substantial subset of those people who are willing to engage in violence.
12:43 am
glass t that is the courthouse. >> reporter: jerad had a lengthy criminal record and ranted on youtube about his house arrest, calling the county courthouse a monument of tyranny. >> sounds a little like nazi germany to me. >> reporter: he was paranoid about government wiretapping and drones. >> they're already wiretapping your phone, you know, watching your facebook and everything. >> paranoia is really an integral part of the militia groups in particular. these are groups that thrive on conspiracy theories that have no basis in fact. >> reporter: in april the millers joined other anti-government protesters at cliven bundy's cattle ranch a few hours away. here's jerad talking to reno affiliate krnv about the standoff against federal agents over grazing fees. >> i feel sorry for any federal agents that want to come in here and try to push us around. but if they're going to come, bring violence to us, well, if that's the language they want to
12:44 am
speak we'll learn it. >> i think that jerad miller's presence at the bundy standoff is extremely important to trying to understand what happened in las vegas. i think it is very possible that jerad miller saw it as the opening battle in a revolutionary war against the government which he intended to continue. >> reporter: cliven bundy's son says the millers were asked to leave their ranch because even they considered them "too radical." some of the couple's closest friends here in las vegas say they actually talked about killing cops all the time. neighbor kelly fielder says the millers were staying at her apartment right before their killing spree. >> they had, i mean, a cart full of just ammunition, ammunition, guns, everything. >> reporter: fielder says she's now riddled with guilt for not calling police. especially considering some of the couple's facebook posts. last month amanda wrote, "to the people of the world, you're lucky i can't kill you now. but remember, one day, one day i
12:45 am
will get you." and on the day before their rampage jerad's final post. "the dawn of a new day. may all our coming sacrifices be worth it." the real sacrifice? three innocent people murdered. joseph wilcox, the civilian who confronted the couple at walmart. >> i've been waiting for him to walk inside the house, and he's just not going to. >> reporter: and those two las vegas police officers, alyn beck and igor soldo. both husbands and fathers. beck leaves behind three children, and soldo a new baby. i'm ryan owens for "nightline" in las vegas. >> thanks to ryan owens for that report. next, diane sawyer's exclusive interview with hillary clinton. revealing for the first time ever how their family went broke after leaving the white house and what she really thinks about monica lewinsky. with each day,

12:51 am
former first lady can be coy when asked about her political intentions. but when she sat down for an exclusive interview with our diane sawyer, she was very forthcoming about far more personal issues like her age, the sports she loves, and yes, monica. >> new york is really our home. >> reporter: hillary clinton's house is a reminder of the drama shaping her life. the chicago girl who became a star of yale law school, the transformation into a political wife of a charismatic candidate for governor of arkansas. >> it's not an image question so much as a priority question. >> reporter: she also describes what she says was her proudest moment as secretary with the president, the decision to go in and get osama bin laden. >> my heart was in my throat because we were watching on the video screen what was happening, and we saw one of the helicopters' tail clip the wall as it tried to get into the compound. >> you really didn't tell president clinton about osama
12:52 am
bin laden? >> no. when president obama called to tell him, i think the president started by saying something like i assume hillary's told you. he goes, told me what? >> reporter: as we sit together, an old stress has returned. an essay in a magazine making headlines, and political opponents warning they think the topic is still fair game. >> monica lewinsky. >> mm. >> is back in the news. >> well, she's perfectly free to do that. she is in my view an american who gets to express herself however she chooses. but that's, you know, not something that i spend a lot of time thinking about. >> really? >> really. yeah. i mean, i wrote about it in my book, "living history." i dealt with it at the time. i have moved on. and that's how i see, you know, my life and my future. >> you're not looking at me thinking, here she is asking these questions -- >> no. because i knew you would. i knew you'd have to. it's something in the news. you have every right to ask.
12:53 am
and i have every right to tell you how i feel. >> did you call her a narcissistic loony toon? >> i am not going to comment on what i did or did not say back in the late '90s. >> reporter: those words surfaced recently in notes from years ago, written down by her late friend, diane blair. for her part lewinsky writes that her life was overwhelmed by ridicule. >> she has said she has lived all these years as a punchline. is there anything you would say to her about her life? >> well, i would wish her well. i hope that she is able to, you know, think about her future and construct a life that she finds meaning and satisfaction in. >> reporter: tonight hillary clinton's 66 years old. >> wow! >> reporter: on a schedule almost as taxing as a campaign tour. she and her husband, thanks to some big spenders, including wall street companies-r no longer the couple struggling for money. reportedly, they can charge hundreds of thousands of dollars for speeches.
12:54 am
>> it has been reported you've made $5 million making speeches, the president made more than $100 million? >> well, if you -- you have no reason to remember, but we came out of the white house not only dead broke but in debt. we had no money when we got there, and we struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages, for houses, for chelsea's education. you know, it was not easy. first of all, we had to pay off all our debts, which you had to make double the money because there's obviously taxes and then pay off the debts and get us houses and take care of family members. >> do you think americans are going to understand five times the median income in this country for one speech? >> well, let me put it this way. i thought making speeches for money was a much better thing than getting connected with any one group or company, as so many people who leave public life do.
12:55 am
>> reporter: the day is winding down. while she says she's still looking ahead to what is possible and what she would leave behind. >> i probably have as good a sense of how hard the job is as anybody. >> age. >> age, yes. isn't it great to be our age? >> i'm older than you are. >> you are. which -- >> it would be great to be your age again. you would be 69 on election day. that's eightmonths younger than ronald reagan. >> yeah. it matters. age matters. >> it may depending upon who the person is. my mother lived with us until her death at 92, and she was as active and involved and just curious and intellectually capable as people much younger than her. so it's the individual. >> when are you going to decide whether you're running for president? >> you know, i'm going to decide when it feels right for me to decide because -- >> by the end of this year? >> well, certainly not before then. >> hillary's new book, "hard
