>> you are 100% right, david. snow moving into the northeast and ginger is tracking that. all eyes on capitol hill today as you know, robin. the senate about to hold its first public hearing on russell brand russia's meddling. >> also, we'll have more on that in a moment. first the news about ivanka trump. facing new questions as she takes an official position in her father's administration as an assistant to the president. now she's joining her husband jared kushner as a member of the white house team. our senior white house correspondent cecilia vega has all the details for us. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: hey, robin, good morning. ivanka trump has been at just about every major event at the white house since her father moved in. but not in an formal role but now this famous first daughter is taking on a new job here in the white house, government employee. she's been in the roeoval offic but never in an official role
7:03 am
even though she had a white house security clearance and for that she faced backlash. saying her non-employee status could have allowed her to skirt ethics role. now president trump's oldest daughter taking on that unprecedented job as an assistant to the president, joining her husband, who is president's senior adviser. but now the first daughter says in a statement she's heard the concerns and will instead serve as an unpaid employee. saying, quote, i have been working closely and in good faith with the white house counsel and my personal counsel to address the unprecedented nature of my role. a big shift from her plans right after election day. >> i'm going to be a daughter, but i've said throughout the campaign that i am very passionate about certain issues and that i want to fight for them. there are a lot of things that i feel deeply, strongly about but not in a formal administrative capacity. >> reporter: she appeared to be so involved that last month we
7:04 am
asked the white house, what exactly is her role here? >> i think her role is to be helpful and provide input on a variety of areas that she has deep passionate concerns about especially in the area of women in the workforce. >> but still not a formal role. >> no, i think -- no, nothing more than you've seen now. >> reporter: but it is formal now. now, democrats are already raising concerns, ivanka trump's personal attorney tells us that she will file the necessary financial disclosure forms and be bound by the same ethics rules as all other white house staffers, david. >> all right, cecilia, great to see you this morning. right to our chief white house correspondent jonathan karl for more. jon, we all heard ivanka trump say in cecilia's piece right after the election i'm going to be a daughter helping her dad, not in a formal administrative capacity but not a formal white house role along with her husband jared kushner. but you know, jon, long before he was president he was always a businessman who surrounded himself by family and done it again. is this what he needs? how will this work? >> reporter: look, when you look at their combined role, you
7:05 am
45erd cecilia talk about what ivanka will be doing and already has been doing here at the white house, jared's role ex-steps all the way from combating opioid abuse to trying to craft middle east peace and it's a huge role, the key factor here, david, is that both of them have, of course, the ultimate trust of the president. the others are staff. they are family. but there's ang interesting political dynamic. they are both considered and have been longtime democrats, and i have heard senior white house staff here refer to them as the liberals so we'll see how it plays out in the west wing. >> meantime, you have news on another front. president trump has often taken aim at china and the controversial phone call to taiwan and tweeting did china ask us if it's okay to devalue our currency? i don't think so. word that china's president is coming to the u.s. >> reporter: not just coming to the united states, it's going to be a multiday trip. two days at mar-a-lago. they will be spending time with the president down at his place
7:06 am
in mar-a-lago. a key trip not just because of all the trade issues but one key topic on the agenda will be north korea. this white house like the previous white house believes that china can do much more to combat what north korea is doing on their nuclear program. >> china said enough of this twitter diplomacy. it'll be fun to watch. jon karl, always great to have you. now to new concerns about russians meddling in the election. the senate preparing for their latest or their first public hearing today and reports that fake news was much more widespread than previously thought. our senior justice correspondent pierre thomas has more from washington. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, robin. later today there's mounting evidence that the russian attack on the u.s. election may have been much broader and much more sophisticated than many people realize. investigators this morning are deeply concerned that the russians' attempt to influence the u.s. election went far beyond the hack of the democratic national committee
7:07 am
and the e-mails of clinton campaign chairman john podesta which were then allegedly passed on to wikileaks. >> this is one of the biggest investigations that the hill has seen in my tenure here. >> reporter: the russians, u.s. officials believe, employed an army of military intelligence agents and so-called trolls who blasted negative stories about clinton to social media. the suspected goal, to weaponize fake news to hurt clinton's chances of winning the presidency. >> what really concerns me is at least some reports, and we've got to get to the bottom of this, that there were upwards of a thousand paid internet trolls working at a facility in russia, in effect, taking over a series of computers. >> reporter: allegedly those secretly compromised computers created the effect of making the negative stories popular on the internet, causing them to trend on social media. >> never ceases to amaze me what people respond to. >> reporter: a scene straight out of the showtime hit "homeland" where thousands of fake social media accounts run by professionals propagate
7:08 am
misinformation opposing the recent president-elect and there's evidence that the russians were able to target those negative stories about clinton to voters in key battleground states. senator warner wants to know if specific areas in michigan, pennsylvania and wisconsin were targeted and the fbi director is warning that the rugs will be back in 2018 to target u.s. congressional races. later this morning the senate intelligence committee is holding hearings on the nature of this ongoing threat. david. >> yeah, it's really alarming. thanks to you. we turn to another major headline, the sentencing in the bridgegate scandal. trapping drivers, ambulances on the busiest bridge in america, the george washington bridge right here in new york. prosecutors say it was political revenge orchestrated by new jersey governor chris christie's aides. well, now just as chris christie was at the white house, his two former aides were sentenced to prison and abc's linsey davis is here. chris christie has always maintained he didn't know. >> reporter: that's right. he says he didn't know but his aides are paying the price.
7:09 am
it happened more than three years ago but this morning the fallout from bridgegate continues. back in november two former aides for new jersey governor chris christie were convicted on all counts and heading into court yesterday they had hoped for probation, but what they got is jail time. while governor chris christie was all smiles with the president for a meeting at the white house wednesday, back in new jersey, two of his former associates were sentenced to federal prison. two years for bill baroni and a year and a half for bridget anne kelly described as political revenge against a mayor who refused to endorse him for re-election and caused gridlock for ambulances and hundreds of thousands of commuters. >> i think the message is clear. i think that as the judge said, this was a case about an abuse of power. >> reporter: kelly, a mother of four, who in 2013 wrote in a now infamous e-mail time for some traffic problems in fort lee>> s
7:10 am
far from allow myself to be the scapegoat in this case. >> reporte baroni each suggested governor christie knew more about the lane closures than he has publicly acknowledged, something president trump echoed during his presidential campaign. >> he knew about it. he knew about it. totally knew about it. >> reporter: christie has long denyed wrongdoing and was never charged in the case. prosecutors say there was no smoking gun that implicated him. david wildstein who admits he came up with the idea has yet to be senten was a candidate and said he knew but was at the white house helping out the trump administration. >> exactly right, david. >> thanks. thank you, guys. now to that severe weather hitting the south overnight. multiple tornadoes tearing through texas and now the threat is moving east and ginger is in memphis where they're bracing for the storms.
7:11 am
good morning, ginger. >> good morning, michael. breezy now but it was downright dangerous just hours ago. look at this image again just taken a couple of hours ago in northeastern memphis. trees down, big trees in people's yards there, power out for many and this is after a very busy two days of storms of violent 63 plus storm reports in the last 24 hours and those storms still blasting from chicago to new orleans this morning. >> oh, my gosh, this thing is huge. >> reporter: overnight that same storm producing at least 17 reported tornadoes since tuesday is on the move. damaging wind gusts flipping shipping containers in pasadena, texas. university of houston students taking shelter inside their student center as the storm rumbled outside. taking down trees. >> look at that. right on top of that truck. >> reporter: an ef-1 tornado in houston throwing these cars and ripping the roof off this apartment building. >> all of a sudden the window just broke and luckily i was

7:31 am
is now under way. busy thursday morning. all right, first this half hour we turn to those newly released 911 calls in that deadly home invasion. a son on the phone with police just moments after he shot three masked intruders who broke foo his father's house armed. abc's kayna whitworth is on the scene in broken arrow, oklahoma, with much more. good morning, kayna. >> reporter: david, good morning. i spoke with that 911 great ir. she said zack peters was certified and pleading for help for the teens after shooting them. >> i've just been broken into. three men, two i've shot in my house. >> reporter: new 911 audio of the oklahoma break-in that left three teenagers dead. >> are they bleeding? >> yes, i believe one's -- one's down. one's still talking. you need to get here now. >> reporter: that's zach peters pleading with the operator to send help after shooting three masked intruders. >> what did you shoot them with.
7:32 am
>> an ar-15. >> reporter: in broad daylight police say three teenagers armed with brass knuckles and a knife shattered the glass back door of this home. peters was there and opened fire. >> do you know where they both are, sir? >> one is in the kitchen. one crawled into the northeast corner bedroom and a third one i did not shoot. he ran outside. >> reporter: the suspects have been identified as 19-year-old maxwell cook, 17-year-old jacob redfearn and 16-year-old jaykob woodrier. mirai rodriguez allegedly the mastermind behind the heist and her friend claiming she called him right after the three boys were killed. >> she said that they thought that the house was e. t all she knows she heard over 12 gunshots so she freaked out and left. >> reporter: after turning herself in, rodriguez was arrested under an oklahoma law that says someone can be charged with murder if they take any part in a fatal crime.
7:33 am
she's now facing three counts of felony first degree murder and three counts of first degree burglary. now, ellison telling police rodriguez took the boys to that same house earlier that day and they made off with liquor and speakers but it wasn't enough for her to pay her rent so they went back and that's when they were killed. david. >> wow, incredible they went back a second time. kayna, thank you. let's bring in nancy grace, good morning, always great to have you back and a lot of talk about this being a test of these so-called stand your ground laws but a lot of people listening will say three masked intruders, armed themselves, that the homeowner's son had every right to protect himself and shoot them. what are the prosecutors examining here? >> well, you are darned right. this is stand your ground. although stand your ground laws really got a bad rap after george zimmerman used that when he gunned down a teen boy trayvon martin, so that's why everyone has it in their mind
7:34 am
that stand your ground is a bad thing. it's not. what it is really is a souped up self-defense and in this case, you've got a 23-year-old young guy at home. he lives with his parents. he hears a break-in. he goes down, skids into the kitchen and sees three guys dressed in black with masks, gloves, the works, brass knuckles, a knife, they have an exchange of words and he unleashes the weapon. it is an ar-15. that's considered bad in a lot of ways of the it's discuss like m-16 military rifle. it is semiautomatic and that has really turned a lot of heads but it doesn't matter if you're using an ar or an bb gun, if somebody comes in your house you have a right to defend yourself and imagine coming in your kitchen and seeing three guys standing there. so i really think this boys down to self-defense. and i'll tell you what is going to be the hangup.
7:35 am
here's the sticky part that felony murder charge they're looking at for rodriguez. she's looking down the wrong end charges. she masterminds tcording to rep the burglary to pay her hears the gunshot, bam, she's out of there and leaves them to die. so, yeah, she's in a lot of trouble. i would not say the shooter, zach is in trouble. >> those are the only charges right now are against the young woman you talk about who was waiting in the car. you believe those charges stick. >> oh, i think they're absolutely going to stick. you know, at first everyone was wondering, well, stand your ground in oklahoma, i guess in homage to dirty harry. they call it the make my day instead of stand your ground. everyone was wondering, you know, he uses a semiautomatic weapon on these three charged?
7:36 am
no, d it's going to be open and shutee one, elizabeth rodriguez is facing three charges of felony murder. >> all right, nancy grace with us this morning, nancy always cuts to the chase. thanks, nance. coming up, that real-life medical mystery involving "grey anatomy's" star chandra wilson's

back with that real-life medical mystery for a "grey's anatomy" star. chandra wilson opening up about the rare illness that suddenly struck her daughter. abc's matt gutman shot down with her and is live from l.a. with all those details. good morning. >> reporter: we know chandra wilson as dr. bailey on "grey's anatomy," but when her daughter started having debilitating abdominal pain, the real-life
7:39 am
momma had to crack a real-life medical mystery. this one wasn't solved in an episode. it took nearly a year of tests. the worst part, she said, not knowing what this mystery disease was. >> this tumor is dangerous. complicated and smart. >> reporter: for 13 seasons on abc's hit show, "grey's anatomy," chandra wilson's character, dr. miranda bailey, has saved lives and solved the toughest of medical mysteries. >> this job was made for me. >> reporter: but this morning the five-time emmy nominated actress is opening up about a real-life mystery illness affecting her 23-year-old daughter sarina. it's one she couldn't treat with tv magic. >> it presented itself like a real bad case of food poisoning and it didn't go away for about four or five days so because of that we went to the e.r. >> reporter: we caught up with chandra on the set of "grey's anatomy." so, does the tv doctor in you at this point start to think, all
7:40 am
right, these symptoms don't add up. this is not food poisoning? i've got to look deeper into this? >> yeah, i started looking for pattern, right. when you are the parent of someone ho is a chronic pain sufferer you end up creating these binders for all of the hospital stays so you can keep track of every visit and any new thing that comes out. this one is a year old. >> it's only one year's worth of medical -- >> yeah. >> reporter: after ten months of tests sarina was diagnosed with sick lick vomiting syndrome or cvs. genetic experts say it's difficult to pin down just how many suffer from the disorder because it's so hard to diagnose. >> sarina was very lucky because of the care and persistence of her mother. most patients go many years without a diagnosis. >> reporter: did it feel better once you actually had a diagnosis and knew what it was. >> the name gave us a direction to go in. >> cyclic vomiting syndrome.
7:41 am
>> reporter: chand dra directed an episode scrambling to diagnose this mysterious disease. >> hear it a that's my kid, my husband, my aunt, that means so much because i remember what it meant to us. >> reporter: the mother/daughter duo posing for the upcoming issue of "people" magazine hoping their story will help others suffering from this disorder. >> that's something i can do sitting on the chair on this set, my daughter said, go ahead. do that. she says, go ahead and do it. >> reporter: her daughter's been battling this disease for six years. so why talk about it now? because after being dormant for years her daughter has suffered another crippling bout of the illness and while they have a diagnosis, that's only part of the battle for people who suffer from cvs. there's no known cure or way to
7:42 am
control these painful episodes, so, robin, still very much a mystery. >> yeah, it is. matt, thank you. going to bring in dr. richard besser for this. great that they're shining a light on it. just tell us a little more on how rare it is. >> it's very rare. we don't have an accurate number of the people who are affected but what she's experiencing is typical where you're totally normal then have episodes where you're having intense bouts of vomiting. it's one of those conditions that's hard to make a diagnosis because there's no blood test for this. so, it's looking for that pattern and having many years before you make a diagnosis like she did is pretty typical. >> how often do people find themselves this this situation that they know something is wrong, the doctors can't identify it, what do they do? >> you know, it's more common than you might think. they've cataloged more than 7,000 rare disorders and these are disorders that may affect just a few people or up to 100,000 people or 200,000
7:43 am
people. with those conditions, it's really, really hard because any one doctor you see may have never seen them before and that makes it challenging and you want to start with your regular doctor and -- but if you're not getting it there, you want to push, follow up and get to see a specialist. >> rich, you have been our regular doctor here at abc and i'm going to try to get through this without crying. i won't be here next week when you're saying good-bye because you're going on and you're doing something wonderful and i wanted to say thank you personally. you have helped me through my health challenges and everybody else here and just love you and just so appreciative of everything you've done for us at abc news. >> the time i've spent with you here has been an honor. it's been a privilege. talking with you and through you about health to our audience has just been -- it's been one of the greatest things in my life and thank you for everything. you've given me. >> bless you. michael. >> i got to say, robin, doc, you

7:49 am
report the location but never take it out of the environment. his heart was in the right place but meme need to be educated. you got to let the animal -- the mother may have been taking care of it still or an animal meant not to survive. >> this reminds us of that story from last year, that father and son that tried to rescue that baby bison by putting it in their car. sadly that bison had to be put down and officials say they didn't have the resources to care for it. what could happen to the bear cub in this case? >> you know, amy, i'm hoping they find a place for it. it's gotten a lot of attention. i'm sure they'll probably find a sanctuary for the one bear. more often than not animals taken out of the wild cannot find a home for it end up being euthanized. that's what people need to understand. nature selects animals. if an animal is not meant to survive it's because it's not healthy enough. that's how nature makes sure a species is as strong as possible. only the survival of the fittest keeps them alive. it's not a domestic dog or cat thaw want to rescue, a wild animal and the wild nature
7:50 am
selects which animals will survive. >> ron, what this young man did was illegal. he could have been charged but he was just fined and he's walking away with a warning. do you think that was the right decision? >> absolutely. this man had no malintent. he wanted to do the right thing but thank god for people like you doing this story. wild animals, leave them alone. especially babies. the mothers still taking care of them. give them a chance to do so. >> thank you very much, guys. great job, robach. coming up, this incredible 7-year-old basketball phenom. she is here and we got a big surprise for her as she's going to love it. plus, "deals & steals," everything is 50% off. you guys are going to love that. it's late it's an all nighter when are we even going to sleep? got a little all nighter refuel going on
