>> go ahead, norah -- what are the challenges for him now, sgla john? >> the challenges are to keep draining the never trump movement from getting fresh anecdotes. he stopped the eruptions we saw every few hours. he's got a new campaign team that's added discipline to the process. he needs to basically keep making his fairness argument, one of the best cases he can make for future contests, telling people to rally around him because he thinks basically the voice of the people should be heard. that's a great pitch for him to make for the rest of the contest. >> bernie sanders outspent hillary clinton by millions of dollars here in new york. he had huge crowds, and yet she crushed him on election day yesterday. will today be remembered as the day that she clinched the nomination? the next three big contests are pennsylvania, new jersey, and california in which she's expected to win panned ly -- handily. ou

it was a decisive win and proved the underlying rules at that clinton team and most democratic strategist have been arguing are in place which is to say in a closed primary with a diverse electorate that she does well, and does he very, very well. it's mathematically really that you can add the numbers up to get a way for sanders to survive. you almost need to do some voodoo to make it work. she's really on her way. other than some miracle happening for bernie sanders, she's going to have the nomination. >> back to donald trump. is it possible that the party now will understand that he is inevitable and that it's necessary for them to rally around him? by that, i mean his competitors in the primary process and party leaders. >> i don't know about the competitors in the primary process. they don't necessarily lose anything by staying in the race. that's different than the case for bernie sanders. it will be interesting to see how he behaves. in terms of party leaders, i think they still, there are a lot of people who write big checks for the party who

7:12 am
the two countries are currently on opposite sides of brutal wars in nearby yemen and syria. the president's going to ask the saudis to pull back. the saudi royals are deeply skeptical of the president's intensions. they already felt betrayed by the u.s.-brokered nuclear deal by iran which gave is new influence in this region. today, the u.s. tried to reassure the saudis by offering yet more military support. they're already the largest buyer of american-made weapons. despite these differences, the two countries still need each other. most importantly in the fight against isis. >> all right. margaret brennan reporting from riyadh, thank you. the first criminal charges related to the flint lead water crisis are expected today in michigan. at least two people connected with the state's department of environmental quality and the city of flint could be charged. michigan's attorney general began investigating after the city switched its water source to the flint river back in 2014. the water was not properly treated. many children have

it probably will be a while until you have a robot who can clean your house in a proficient way. in the meantime, things like checking in to flights and knowing what meeting to go to next, knowing what's on your agenda, that's the simple stuff. where it gets powerful is where we apply artificial intelligence or machine learning to things like how do we solve, you know, different kinds of cancer issues -- >> it's already being done. >> yes. we can actually apply technology to our most pressing problems like education, health care, life sciences, even the government. >> i think one of the most important debates is security. it's not personal security. it's secure from the government and legislation. as you know, your industry is under pressure from law enforcement to share more data. there's legislation in congress that would force you to do that. >> yeah. so one of the biggest issues we're seeing is this collision between our legacy laws, the laws that were built up the past couple hundred years, designed to protect information and protect consumer and protect ze
8:39 am
and give the government certain access to data in the physical world. the problem is is in the digital world, that information needs to be protected in a very different way. and our laws and policies and the way the government interacts with the technology industry sort of assumes that we're still in that physical era. that physical world that is defined by borders and boundaries. and we're not there anymore. so in a world where billions of people are going to be on the internet, where we're going to be accessing and communicating with anyone in the world from any device, we need a different set of laws that are going to ensure the protection of our information. that is going to ensure the protection of data for consumers, brksz and even the government -- businesses, and even the government. that's what we're running into with the fbi versus apple or microsoft versus the government. we're in the very early stages of probably what is going to be a decade of change that's going to be necessary in our laws and practices. >> good on you, aaron levy, 31. you dropped out of college. you have a $1.5 billion company. your parents said, great, son, you'rett

that. but ultimately, they were fine with the proposition. probably up until about five years in, my mom kept asking me when i was going get a degree. that's since subsided. >> doing a-okay. thank you. best-selling author john grisham offers up a plot twist. >> i don't view my books as important. i view my books as entertainment. first and foremost as entertainment.

lives a year. in an alternate ending he's treated with focused ultra sound and lives five to ten years. >> i don't view my books as important. i few my books as entertainment. first and foremost as entertainmentment. >> reporter: that's how grisham feels about his legal page-turners that have entertained millions of readers. >> i'm trying to figure out how far you want to invent. >> reporter: and inspired several blockbuster movies. >> want to talk about the brief? >> everyone i've told about the brief is dead. >> reporter: now for the first time, grisham has written a back that he calls important. so important he's giving it away for free. >> "the tumor" is the only book i've written that has the potential of advancing some technology that will have a profound effect on the lives of millions of people. >> reporter: the focused ultrasound sfoingz based at the university -- foundation is base ted university of virginia. grisham is on the board. he decided he could have a much
8:46 am
bigger impact by writing a nonlegal thriller than doing what board members usually do. you didn't want to sit down and call people and say can you contribute money? >> not going to do that. i've learned a value lesson. when i ask somebody for money, it normally doesn't take very long for them to return the favor. >> reporter: focused ultra sound is a non-innovative outpatient treatment that targets diseased tissue with multiple beams of ultrasound energy with extreme precision. so far, it's approved by the fda to treat prostate tumors, uterine fibroids, and bone metastases. but it could eventually be approved to treat dozens of diseases including parkinson's, alzheimer's, and a long list of cancers. >> the vast majority have never heard of focused ultrasound. >> reporter: grisham met retired brain surgeon dr. neil cassell 15 years ago in virginia where they both. cassell runs the targeted ultrasound foundation and

grisham to join the board. >> one of the key development to the technology is lack of -- key blocks to the development of the technology is lack of knowledge. we have a celebrity on our board who's got a brand, who can tell a story, and who has a following. this is the brain here. >> reporter: cassell admits the technology is in its infancy, and ongoing clinical trials need years more data to prove the procedure's effectiveness. >> it may not work. needs to be demonstrated. for malignant brain tumors, it's only going to improve longevity. for benign tumors, it will be an alternative to surgery and radiation therapy and forms of keep tla-- chemotherapy. >> reporter: you're saying it may not work at all on malignant tumors? >> may have flow value compared to traditional -- have no value compared to traditional treatment. it has to be proven. the technology is revolutionary. the challenge is getting there. >> reporter: grisham is well
8:48 am
the potential to improve the lives of millions keeps him going. >> after 37 books or 38 books, i can look back and say, yeah, that was a good one. i'm proud of that book. others i can look back and say, well, you know, i'm not too sure about that one. i'll never do that with "the tumor." >> reporter: you won't? >> no because it is what it is. if it finds a much bigger market, if it finds people to push our research to get us there, that's the purpose of the book. >> reporter: focused ultra sound is not cheap. grisham put the price of a treatment for a brain tumor in this book at about $75,000. and it is not covered by insurance. grisham and dr. cassell hopes that will change over time as its use becomes more common. norah? >> thank you. i love it -- john grisham such a good guy. >> bravo. >> glad he's bringing attention to this.
