good morning, america. showdown. clocks ticking on the senate health care bill. the crucial vote could come this week. president trump fighting to get his own party on board amid fierce opposition. >> it's a very narrow path but i think we'll get there. >> a huge day at the supreme court. will they rule on the travel ban and is one justice about to step down? raging wildfires. nearly two dozen burning across the west. hundreds evacuated. this man trying to battle a blaze with water from his pool. homes already destroyed. now fierce strong winds will fan the flames. new warnings about that deadly triple-digit heat. abc news exclusive. a jury in the bill cosby trial speaks out on camera for the first time. >> i thought he was guilty. >> you didn't always feel that way. >> no. >> what changed his mind?
7:01 am
inside those grueling 52 hours of deliberation and the one thing they vowed thought to talk about. only on "gma." ♪ i'm on my way and the sweetest swing. jordan spieth defying the odds with this sudden death 60-foot shot. the crowd going wild. what he did that only tiger woods has done before. ♪ good morning, america. great to have george back. >> good to be back. thank you. >> how about that great shot? >> boy, you think of jordan spieth. let's show it one more time. we were just saying we could watch this all day long. he's normally such a cool customer but amazing what he did right after. >> the reaction with the caddie. >> that was so great. >> yep. >> more on that coming up. a very busy morning in washington. supreme court, summer recess
7:02 am
starts today after the justices hand down final decisions, the big one, what will they say about trump's travel ban. all this amid speculation justice ken day may retire. the president focused his tweets on russia taking a new tack appearing to admit russia interfered in our election for the first time and blamed president obama. the showdown in the senate. gop still short of votes and today will the congressional budget office reveal its score, how much the bill will cost, how many millions will lose insurance coverage? a lot coming up and mary bruce starts us off with all the latest. good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning. by the end of the day we are likely to know how many americans could stand to lose coverage. and how premiums could be impacted but this report card is likely to complicate this race to negotiate. republican leaders have just a few days to wheel and deal with members of their own party. they are barreling towards a self-imposed deadline and this
7:03 am
morning the list of republicans voicing concerns is growing. with the clock ticking president trump is cautiously optimistic that senate republicans will pass their health care plan. >> i don't think they're that far off. famous last words, right? but i think we're going to get there. >> reporter: but members of his own party aren't so sure. >> we should not be voting on this next week. >> reporter: republicans can afford just to lose two votes. five others have serious concerns. conservatives say the bill doesn't go far enough to repeal obamacare. >> the obamacare subsidies in this bill are actually greater under the republican bill than they are under the current obamacare law. that is not anywhere close to repeal. >> reporter: during the campaign candidate trump promised not to trump medicaid. >> i'm worried about the medicaid cuts. what it means to our most vulnerable citizens. >> reporter: during the campaign he vowed not to touch medicaid. >> save medicare/medicaid and
7:04 am
social security without cuts. >> reporter: the senate bill is projected to slash spending on medicaid by $800 billion but the white house insists this keeps the president's promise. >> we don't see them as cuts. it's slowing the rate of growth in the future and getting medicaid back to where it was. >> reporter: at least one republican governor disagrees. >> over a ten-year period medicaid funding will be significantly curtailed. >> reporter: across the aisle democrats aren't budging. >> we are doing everything we can to fight this bill because it's so devastating for the middle class. >> reporter: republicans are now scrambling to negotiate with both opposite ends. the challenge is can they strike that balance or will any concessions anger and frustrate the conservatives and vice versa? can they find the middle ground? >> that is the big question, thank you. as george mentioned president trump's tweets focused on russia appearing for the first time to accept the fact that russia
7:05 am
interfered in the election but now blaming president obama for not doing more to stop it. our senior white house choernt correspondent cecilia vega has more. >> reporter: it could be china and lots of other people but now he points the finger directly at moscow. president trump now seems to concede what 17 intelligence agencies previously concluded russia did indeed interfere with the election. his strategy, blame president obama. >> well, i just heard today for the first time obama knew about russia a long time before the election and he did nothing about it. >> reporter: the shift comes after a "washington post" report detailing russia's role in the election and president obama struggled to stop them. president trump tweeting since the obama administration was told way before the 2016 election that the russians were meddling, why no action? focus on them and not ""t."
7:06 am
>> i know you thought hillary would win. how could you not reveal important information about russia hacking? >> reporter: but democrats too. >> he should have spoken out to the american people and said, this is what russia is doing. russia has had better stop it. >> reporter: not just russia. six months on the job and he's still tweeting about the election and his opponent writing hillary clinton colluded with the democratic party in order to beat crazy bernie sanders. is she allowed to so collude? unfair to bernie. a lot of tweets this weekend but today president trump meets with india's prime minister right here at the white house. they are expected to issue statements together but they are not expected to be taking questions from the full white house press corps, george. the president has only had one full white house press conference since taking office. >> a long time, cecilia, thanks very much. more from our chief white house correspondent jonathan karl and
7:07 am
matthew dowd. welcome to you both. let me begin with you. so much at stake for the president on health care. he is up against a wall right now of republican opposition and it's hard to figure out exactly what he's doing about it. >> reporter: well, i do know this, george. i am told the president made calls over the weekend to some of those wavering senators getting directly involved at least with the lobbying push if not with the negotiations over changing the bill. and i'm told he'll be doing more of that in the coming week, of course, the stakes are incredibly high for the president. he wants to see this pass and he wants to see it pass soon. >> reporter: matthew dowd, stakes incredibly high for the president for the american people as well. >> absolutely. i think what we've learned even when you hold all the leverage of power which the republicans and president do, an unpopular president can't get an unpopular congress to pass an unpopular policy. the problem with this, if this fails all those other policies because if you don't get health care you can't get tax reform, infrastructure becomes more difficult, this really is that
7:08 am
line that if he can't get over it will hard for him to pass anything. >> meantime, the president simply can't help himself on those tweets about russia. >> no, he has an obsession on this and i was thinking about. the one person that questions donald trump's legitimacy the most for holding his office seems to be donald trump. donald trump constantly raises questions about his own electoral victory, about whether or not russia interfered with it and i'm reminded of a quote, to cure one obsession you usually have to adopt another obsession so donald trump would be much better adopting another that was more beneficial for the public. >> doesn't appear he will do that. this appearance from the president that he's accepting that russia interfered in our election now puts the ball back in his court. what is he going to do about it? >> reporter: he's been all over the map on this and his tweets over the weekend, i counted at least four related to russia or the russia investigation, only two on obamacare. but he does now say that he does appear to be accepting the fact that the russians interfered and
7:09 am
he is criticizing the obama administration or president obama for not doing more which raises the question what will he do about it? you don't see much activity on that front. >> they are facing a possible -- the senate vote on sanctions for russia. the president resisting that. >> reporter: well, the president believes that that -- the administration's position is that that kind of hems them in, that they want the flexibility. they have, by the way, stepped up sanctions on russia, you know, laterally so aren't opposed to the idea of sanctions but opposed to congress telling them what to impose. >> jon karl, matthew dowd, thanks very much. to that big day at the supreme court. the last day of the session before the summer recess begins. the court handing down its final ruling today and as we mentioned it could take action on president trump's travel ban so let's go to terry moran who covers the supreme court for us and is there right now and let's start with that travel ban, terry. >> reporter: good morning, robin. this is a huge day for president trump up here and one of his signature policies which has had
7:10 am
a really rough go of it in the courts so far. now the supreme court steps in and the real issue, does president trump as a national security matter have the authority to ban immigration from the six predominantly muslim countries or is that really an unconstitutional muslim ban? the lower courts have stopped this policy from going into effect and pointed to the president's own tweets and words saying that is unconstitutional, what he really wants to do there so the court could do a couple of things. they could take this case, agree to hear it next fall, in the meantime, keep blocking that policy from going into effect. huge defeat for the president or they could take the case and allow the policy to go in effect and say we'll see how it works in the real world, a victory for the president and say we aren't taking it and keep fighting it out in the lower courts and would not go into effect so a defeat as well. >> growing speculation justice kennedy would announce his
7:11 am
retirement. >> reporter: this in many ways is the kennedy court, the swing vote for more than a decade on crucial issues, abortion, affirmative action and he has been the crucial vote. if he decides to retire and signs that he would, it would be a war for this court. like nothing seen in the past 30 years since the nomination of robert bork was defeated and justice kennedy took his seat. >> that's right. >> all right, terry, thank you. >> everything changes in washington if he retire, seismic. we'll stay on top of that but turn to massive wildfires in the west forcing hundreds of families to evacuate in utah, nearly a thousand firefighters are battling the largest active wildfire in the country, already consumed more than 40,000 acres. abc's matt gutman is on the ground in pafguitch, utah. good morning. >> reporter: officials calling it unprecedented saying they never expected it to grow this big this fast so early in the fire season already consuming an area larger than washington,
7:12 am
d.c. they have 1100 firefighters here already but say they need more. this morning, fast-moving flames in utah forcing more than 1500 from their homes. more than 1100 firefighters keeping an all out assault battling this nearly 43,000-headacher fire. >> relatives on the west side of the valley lost everything. >> reporter: more than a dozen homes destroyed as firefighting planes and choppers battle it from above. >> a fire of this magnitude with this much energy just does what it wants. >> reporter: much like 21 of the wildfires burning across states officials blaming triple digit heat and dry terrain feel the heat. >> oh, my god. >> reporter: this brush fire near los angeles driven by wind and heat racing up hillsides. more than 750 acres burned as the fire jumped a highway and
7:13 am
motorists trying to keep that smoke in their rearview mirror. officials had to shut down a major highway. the fire threatening dozens of homes. this resident frantically trying to battle the blaze using water from his pool. in arizona, the governor declaring a state of emergency, the fry fire chewing up more than 35,000 acres. this time lapse captures the flames consuming the hillside. >> be ready and get out. >> reporter: now there are red flag warnings here today which means more heat and more wind could make this fire again into an intern another and firefighters talking about 100-foot-high flames and concerns it will push it back toward residential areas. >> we'll keep on this and go to ginger with new fire warnings across the southwest. >> robin, matt is right. it's going to be the wind as we get rid of some of the heat and suppress some of it red flag warnings but phoenix has been
7:14 am
110 degrees plus today for ten days in a row so the heat is real then you put on the critical fire danger not just in the rockies, parts of idaho, eastern oregon but through las vegas and into arizona, because that ridge is going to break down, the heat, yes, still very hot, 118 needles. 115 yuma but as that flips through that's where the wind comes from. it also is where the cooler air comes from, burbank, 111 sunday. 79 by thursday. robin. >> see those digits. already. the latest into an airasia flight shaking for a full two hours and the pilot asked passengers to pray and made an urgent plea. david wright with the latest. >> reporter: something you don't want to hear from a pilot. pray but this happened about 90 minutes into the flight, frightening times for passengers as their airbus jet started shaking. you can see the tray tables and seats all shaking.
7:15 am
passengers as well. this happened as they're heading back now. it took them more than an hour and a half to get back. one described it as being in a washing machine. the pilots of the airasia jet from perth, australia, to kuala lumpur pleaded with passengers to pay attention and to pray. >> please, listen to everything. our survival depends on your cooperating. hopefully everything will turn out for the best. >> reporter: upon landing the pilot reportedly told passengers that he thought a fan blade broke in one of the engines. you can see the engine shaking in the video shot by one of the passengers. airasia is just calling this an engine incident saying in a statement that it is investigating with its engine supplier, george, which is rolls-royce. >> they don't know for sure whether it was the air blade that broke. >> reporter: they don't know exactly but i got to tell you, george, that analogy of a washing machine on balance is a pretty good idea because if a fan blade breaks the engine
7:16 am
starts moving even though it's shut down the air start going through and would shake like it did all the way back to perth. >> thanks very much. >> every time you see that. speaking of video turning to that incredible moment on the golf course. jordan spieth winning his -- winning the first major of the year. that shot right there, every time you see it you still can't believe it, paula faris. still can't believe it. >> i don't know if it actually happened. we'll show it to you again, everybody. in any sport it helps if you can actually see the target that you're aiming for. well, jordan spieth couldn't. he hit a blind shot and afterwards admitted it was a whole lot of luck. >> right in the hole. >> reporter: it was a moment of pure celebration. >> unbelievable. >> reporter: golfer jordan spieth defying the odds making an incredible 60-foot blind bunker shot in the first hole of
7:17 am
a sudden death playoff. >> right at it. >> reporter: watch again as he makes the shot. throws his club in the air and leaps into a chest bust with his caddie as the crowd goes wild. >> and the place was shaking. i mean, i've never experienced a roar like that. >> reporter: it may have been an unbelievable shot but at least one person saw it coming. fellow golfer justin thomas actually predicted the shot on twitter right before it happened. >> not an easy shot here. >> reporter: maybe because it's not the first time he's gotten himself out of a tough spot. back in 2013 at age 19 he pulled out from a bunker in a similar fashion winning the john deere . spieth now joins tiger woods as one of only24.
7:18 am
he's impressive. so rare to win from a bunker shot his caddie took something unusual as a memento. he took the bunker rake, you guys. that sounds like a great idea until you get it home and then what do you do with a bunker rake? it doesn't fit in with the motif? >> not going to forget that. go back to ginger. severe weather coming to the plains. >> tough to put it in a shadow >> let's get to the select cities brought to you by carmax.

7:33 am
if we all said it a million times in the room, if there's other evidence, more substantial evidence. we would have had a better verdict than deadlock. >> you can't say your opinion one way or another about where you fell. >> in my opinion, yes, i can. i thought he was guilty. >> but you didn't always feel that way. >> no. >> what swayed you? >> people's opinions and hearing their arguments and just hearing what they have to say about everything. >> can you say what one particular strong point was that made you think, boy, he's guilty. >> what he said himself, i think it was the 2005 deposition, when they were asking him would you use the word concept, he said i wouldn't use that word. i was like, pretty much said it there yourself, man. somebody brought it up inside the room, deliberation room and so when we went back out to hear it, just like lit a light bulb

7:35 am
room that the idea that this was bill cosby, that that played large in the room? >> definitely. i think if it was like a regular, average joe it wouldn't wouldn't have taken that long. >> reporter: he says the group still keeps in touch and vowed to not talk about one thing. >> what was the pact? >> not just the vote. >> why not. >> the judge told us not to. we didn't want to mess up a future tliel. >> do you think another jury will have a better chance at a different outcome? >> i can't say for definite. i mean i hope there is one because the mistrial i don't think was right. you should always have a verdict or -- one way or another. >> reporter: bobby says the jurors grew extremely close. they still keep in touch regularly on texts and ultimately plan to have one big group dinner but he says for now they're just trying to recover after what he calls two weeks of agony. robin. >> linsey, thank you. we bring in dan abrams and

enlightening listening to that young man. what did you make -- ? first of all that's exactly what jurors are supposed to do. they're supposed to listen to the other jurors, keep an open mind, the judge tells them in every case keep an open mind and try to reach a verdict. but let's be clear. it's really rare that you have people sort of swaying the way we've heard this jury swayed going from almost all of them if not all of them from not guilty to so many of them to guilty, et cetera, but one thing he said really struck me which is he's saying in effect if it hasn't been bill cosby we would have been able to reach a verdict, he thought, and it sounds to me like what he's saying is i think there would have been a conviction because he was for a guilty verdict and it sounds like he is suggesting that if it had been somebody else they might have been able to reach a unanimous verdict. >> we're listening closely to what he is saying to the other jurors. how closely are the defense and
7:37 am
prosecutor listening. >> very closely. interviews will go and interview the jurors after the case. this judge put very firm restrictions in a very unusual way on what these jurors can and can't say about the deliberation process. but no question, each side is going to want to know what did we do right, what did we do wrong? how do we change our strategy next time around to present a better case? >> have you heard anything so far that leads you to believe that there will or will not be a retrial? >> i think it's pretty clear there will be a retrial. you know, the prosecutors have come out and said that they're going to retry bill cosby and i think take them at their word and i think the prosecution's going to be at a little advantage the next time around. >> all right. thanks so much. coming up here that terrifying six flags ride. see a 14-year-old dangling two stories above the ground. two good samaritans who helped her are taking us inside that moment. lilly.
