first two big headlines out of washington this morning. you're looking live at capitol hill. there's a possible break through for president biden's massive spending bill. the president meeting behind closed doors with democrats about possible concessions. we'll tell you what's at stake this morning from free community college to extended pay family leave. >> they're hoping to get that done this week. we'll begin though with the showdown over trump adviser steve bannon, the house investigating the january 6th attack on the capitol is now recommending contempt charges against him. jon karl has the latest. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, george. the january 6th committee wants steve bannon to go to prison for refusing to cooperate with its investigation, as they referred criminal charges the committee's top republican made it clear this is about much more than steve bannon. overnight the january 6th committee said steve bannon must pay the price for defying a congressional subpoena.
>> no one in this country, no matter how wealthy or powerful is above the law. >> reporter: the committee alleged, quote, the bannon had special knowledge about events planned for january 6th before they occurred. they pointed to his own words on january 5th, the day before the riot when he said on his podcast -- >> all hell is going to break loose tomorrow. just understand this, all hell is going to break loose tomorrow. it's going to be moving. it's going to be quick. there's going to be many moving pieces. >> reporter: bannon told trump supporters this is their moment in history. >> all i can say is strap in. you have made this happen and tomorrow it's game day. >> reporter: bannon could face up to a year behind bars if found guilty. his lawyer told the committee he's refusing to comply at the request of former president trump. as the vote to hold him in contempt moves to the full house, liz cheney had a message for her republican colleagues in congress. >> almost every one of my colleagues knows that in your hearts that what happened on january 6th was profoundly wrong. all of us who are elected
officials must do our duty to prevent the dismantling of the rule of law and to ensure that nothing like that dark day in january ever happens again. >> reporter: cheney told republicans trump has been lying about the election and they know it. >> you all know that there's no evidence of widespread election fraud sufficient to have changed the results of the election. you know these claims are false. yet former president trump repeats them almost daily. >> reporter: the full house will vote on criminal charges on thursday. it will be up to the justice department to decide whether or not to prosecute bannon. as for cheney's message to fellow republicans it may be a tough sell. a new poll from quinnipiac found that 78% of republicans want donald trump to run for president again in 2024. >> that is something. jon karl, thanks very much.
robin? we'll stay in washington with a possible break through on president biden's massive social weeks with democrats at odds - over what to include and how big the bill should be. rachel scott is on capitol hill with the latest for us. good morning, rachel. >> reporter: robin, good morning. the president has been working to break that stalemate in his party for weeks and this morning we're learning he's ramping up the pressure. sources tell me when the president met with democrats behind closed doors at the white house he told them they need to reach a deal on his economic agenda by the end of next week. that some pretty big concessions would need to be made, starting with tuition free community college. the president said that community college will likely need to be dropped from the final package and other priorities will need to be scaled back as well. the child tax credit democrats wanting to make that permanent,
but the president sut significa suggesting it may only be extended for an additional year. also, whether to slash paid family leave from 12 weeks weeks. just under $2 trillion. climate change provisions continue to be the sticking point but democrats are under pressure to come together on that before the president heads off for a global summit on climate change. the white house making it clear in a statement overnight the window to strike a deal is now closing and i'm told the democrats want to reach a deal to give the president something to out to on the world stage. >> there's a vote set on the voting rights bill today. what's at stake there? >> reporter: democrats have been looking for a way to counter the wave of states that have enacted laws making it tougher to vote. they're looking for a key test vote on legislation that would make election day a federal holiday, would set a national standard for mail-in voting, but
it's likely to fail. they need the support of ten republicans to move forward, and they just don't have it. robin? >> rachel scott, thank you. michael? we'll turn now to that plane crash in texas and the miraculous survival on everyone onboard. bursting into flames, somehow everyone got out alive. zohreen shah is on the scene in texas this morning. good morning, zohreen. >> reporter: good morning, michael. truly a miracle. one passenger telling the houston chronicle he was shaky and running for her life away from those flames. this morning, we're learning more about the ceo who owned the plane and was always onboard. overnight a terrifying scene in texas. >> i do have visual of a plane fully engulfed. >> reporter: this plane bursting into flames after skidding off the runway, but miraculously everyone on board escaping. >> no one is deceased and man that's an awesome feeling for us as first responders. >> reporter: the private jet owned by houston home builder jay allen kent was on its way to
boston for the mlb playoffs, including his wife and 16 others. >> we were thinking that nobody was going to walk away. so that's miracle. >> when i saw the initial wreckage i was just floored. >> reporter: only two people suffering minor injuries. >> this is a good day. this is actually a day of celebration. >> reporter: officials say the pilot aborted takeoff but seconds before the md-87 taxiing with no obvious red flags. it's too soon to tell if this puff of smoke coming from the engine had anything to do with the crash. tire marks can be seen in the grass. one of the surviving passengers saying when the plane came to a stop, everyone screamed get out, get out. with crew assisting passengers, as she fled in her astros jersey without her shoes. >> this particular aircraft
isn't flown by many u.s. airlines anymore, but when it was in service it had an excellent safety record. it was built very strongly. we can see it survived at least lodge enough for these people to get off the airplane safely. >> reporter: they luckily did. most airplane mishaps happen during take off or landing. those are the most critical moments. the big question now is why couldn't that plane stop fast enough. george? >> okay, zohreen, thanks very much. we turn to the fate of the 17 hostages kidnapped in haiti. we're learning more about them. the youngest just 18 months. haiti police official confirms the gang wants $1 million for each hostage marcus moore is in port-au-prince with the latest. good morning, marcus. >> reporter: good morning, george. negotiations under way as officials work to free those hostages. 17 people now held for five days as people here in haiti and the u.s. pray for their free release. this morning secretary of state
blinken vowing to do everything possible to secure the release of the 17 hostages, the youngest 8 months old, the oldest child, 15. acknowledging the difficulties on the ground to secure the release of the 17 hostages. >> gangs dominate many parts of port-au-prince and other parts of haiti. the national police can't even operate in many areas. >> reporter: the 16 americans and 1 canadian were kidnapped saturday returning from this orphanage part of their missionary work with an ohio-based christian ministries. 400 mawozo reportedly demanding $17 million. $1 million ransom per hostage. the same gang is believed to have kidnapped ten priests and nuns in april. the group was released after 20 days, but it's unclear if a ransom was paid. this man was among that group and says the key to survival was
never losing hope. >> the message i have for them is not to be impatient. i do think that one day all of them will be free. >> reporter: a message of hope as this crisis unfolds here in haiti. a haitian police official told abc news they believe the group is being held somewhere close to port-au-prince and negotiations were under way. robin? >> marcus, thank you. now to the coronavirus emergency. the fda expected to authorize the mixing and matching of vaccines for booster shots. this comes as the cdc panel is set to meet today on whether to recommend moderna and johnson & johnson boosters. whit johnson with more. good morning, whit. >> reporter: good morning, robin. by the end of the week the booster shot campaign in this country is likely to expand dramatically. any day now the fda is expected to give the green light to mix and match boosters shots and health experts are citing this new limited study that indicates a single shot of johnson &
johnson followed by one dose of pfizer and moderna could offer more protection than another shot of johnson & johnson. according to the study antibodies were boosted by four times, but when boosted with pfizer they jumped 35 times and 36 times after a boost with moderna. a source saying that regulators will recommend people get the same brand for their boosters, but it won't be required giving patients and required more flexibility. robin? >> whit, talk more about the cdc panel meeting and about the boosters for moderna and j&j shot. >> reporter: the pfizer booster has been authorized for older americans. moderna and johnson & johnson are next in line. that's cdc advisory panel will meet today and tomorrow to review the data. they will also discuss mixing and matching vaccine booster shots as well.
if they sign off, the final recommendation then goes to the cdc director. it is possible that millions more americans could be eligible for booster shots by this weekend. robin? >> all right, whit, thank you. michael? robin, now to that major announcement from a retail giant. procter and gamble raising prices on many common household items. this as gas prices sky rocket. we're covering all the angles. we'll start with kaylee hartung at the port of l.a. in california. good morning, kaylee. >> reporter: this morning, razors, paper towels could be more expensive. the consume giant proctor & gamble announcing they're raising prices pro products. they're pointing to the shortage of truck drivers and the record backlogs at our ports like the one here in l.a. they're changing up some of their shipping routes and
they're limiting how much products consumers can buy to prevent hoarding. in the last year the average price of ground beef has gone up about 24 cents a pound. one expert's telling us the increase in inflation is adding up to about $175 in additional costs per month. that's for the typical american family. michael? >> that's big jump. kaylee, thank you so much. now we're going to turn to gas prices at a seven-year high and expected to keep rising. let's bring in gio benitez. good morning, gio. >> reporter: michael, good morning. experts tell us relief at the pump is not coming any time soon, in fact prices are only going up from here. let's take look at the national average right now, $3.35 per gallon, a spike over a nickel in just the past week. aaa saying it will cost you $17
more to fill your vehicle. why is this all happening? the cost of crude oil is still very high over $80 a barrel, that natural gas shortage in europe having a lot to do with this. the most expensive states right now, california and hawaii, both seeing average prices well above $4 a gallon. it's looking like we'll see another spike of 5 to 10 cents per gallon. the bad news is, we may see these prices keep going all the way through thanksgiving. we're going to switch gears now to the nba, season opened last night. there was a celebration for the milwaukee bucks. they received their ring, raised their championship banner in front of a soldout crowd. and they picked up right where they left off. beating the brooklyn nets and a big night for giannis antetokounmpo. a triple-double to lead the warriors over lebron james and the lakers.

vaccinated. >> john joining us live right now. good to see you. appreciate it. that didn't look planned. >> good to see you, george. it wasn't planned. on front of my mind for a long time through covid crisis. we were talking about covid vaccines and covid misinformation in the wake of the death of general secretary of state colin powell. it was said by some commentators on you know what network that vaccines don't work. one of our medical experts was talking about why that's reckless. why can't we have a shared sense of community to protect people like general powell and people with conditions like he had. so it just came out. it wasn't planned. something on the front of my mind for some time. it's just so reckless. >> it's hard to imagine how this has become a debate. >> right. that's a great point. look, we've known each other a long time, george, so we can go back 30 years and we thought back in those days our politics was as broken and fractured as it could be. those times seem pretty quaint right now.
i get it. you've been around this for 30-plus. we understand political moments are pretty divisive. today is more polarizing than ever. but the strength of america, what makes america great those big moments we learn to set that aside. 700,000 of our friends and neighbors are died from covid. by november, the population of denver will have be wiped off the map by covid, why is not that big enough? to set that aside and you come from a great faith tradition, i remember the lessons of my mothers and the nuns, love thy neighbor. do what you can to help other people. we're not in january or february. back then questions about the vaccines were legitimate. we know now. tens of millions of people are safe. they are effective. they are driving down the covid case numbers. if you want a debate about mandates, fine. do it based on fact, not reckless, dangerous misinformation. the one thing that m.s. has taught me is so much of this is hidden. you don't know if the person in front of you at the coffee shop,
or the person at the super market needs help. put this on. >> you've had ms for 13 years, very private about it. it seemed on air like you haven't missed a beat. >> i'm glad it looks like that way. that can be a struggle sometimes. you're sitting next to today's one of the greatest cancer warriors. she looks like she hasn't missed a beat. there are days when it's very frustrating. today i'm having a problem with my hands. i haven't been able to have full sensation in my legs since late in the clinton administration. there are some days this knocks me on my you-know-what. other days it's just nagging. i'm lucky. i'm lucky. i have what's called relapsing, remitting ms. my medications have been remarkably successful in slowing the growth of the lesions. there are other people for whom this disease is more cruel and more punishing. i consider myself lucky and blessed.
it has taught me, it's made me stronger. it's made aware again a lot of these symptoms, stress people are going through is hidden. you cannot see it. we should be aware it's out there. we should be willing to do hard things to help other people. rolling up your sleeve and getting a safe vaccine is easy. putting on a mask is easy. why can't we do the easy things? let's debate the hard things. these things are easy. they can help a friend or a neighbor or a stranger get through the day. >> was it especially hard for you during the pandemic? >> at the beginning it was frightening. i decided to come to work every day. at first i was scared, remember, we didn't know if we could touch things. we weren't sure how it was transmitted. i was a little worried about myself. more worried about being the weak link if you will because immune system is compromised and bringing it home. i have a 10-year-old son. even now he can't get vaccinated.
his grandmother like robin is a great cancer warrior. i was worried that i would be the weak link that somehow brought it in to my family and the people around me. that was of great concern. i was extraordinarily careful. i'm grateful to my employer and the people who work in the building that they were careful. then, the day the vaccines were available i was first in line, trying to get first in line, i had to wait a little bit, when the boosters became available my doctor said you should get one. i think it was the second or third day i was in line for that because the data is so overwhelming. i don't like being told what to do. george, you've known me for a long time. i don't like my employer telling me i have to get a vaccine. i don't like the government telling me. this is bigger than that. it should be bigger than that. at moments in american history when we're all challenged, we're supposed to come together and set the politics aside j thy n. >> you mentioned robin roberts. one of her favorite messages is
make your mess your message. >> i don't like talking about myself. i'm not supposed to be part of the story. i'm supposed to cover the story. if i made a mistake that if my personal experience can help anybody, help people understand that the person next to you, you may not know it, in the subway, in the coffee shop might need your help, you can do a couple of easy things to make them feel safer. if i can help with that, so be it. >> john king, thanks for coming on this morning. >> thanks, george. john, bless you. i know it's not easy to share as you did. vulnerability is a strength. it's not a weakness. i concur with you, very grateful my colleagues did the same as yours. they got vaccinated they knew that i was compromised. thank you again for being here. >> thank you. >> wishing you all the best. take care, john. >> thank you. let's go to ginger. >> robin, thank you all for shining light. the waxing gibbous hunter's

enough. >> repter: after two decades of silence, shame and nightmares paris hilton is on a mission to protect children from abuse and taking a powerful message to washington this morning. >> children deserve to be treated like human beings. these kids are treated worse than some would be in prison. it's horrifying. >> that's what you endured, something worse than prison in. >> worse than -- it's literal hell on earth. >> reporter: in her 2020 documentary, "this is paris," she came forward with allegations that she was abused as teenager while attending boarding school in utah. >> i started remembering who i was before. it makes me sad they took that away. >> can you describe what you experienced at boarding scol? le, just every day wishing that i would wake up from this
nightmare. being physically abused, yelled at, restrained, locked in rooms, forced medication, being watched by male staff while i was taking a shower. i had basically no human rights. >> reporter: since speaking out, paris said she received thousands of letters and talked to hundreds of survivors. >> the stories that i hear are identical to what i've experienced and there are thousands of these facilities. it's a multibillion industry. >> reporter: this 12-year-old was one of those survivors. she said she was abused at a facility in montana and will be by paris' side when she testifies today. >> i'm just happy that she's going to be helping. she's amazing. >> reporter: they want private boarding schools that promise to treat troubled teens regulated. >> there needs to be oversight, regulations, accountability, transparency. >> i see that shutdown provo sign just behind you.
that school is still running. what is your message to the people who hurt you? >> i actually had another sign during that rally, children you abuse today will take you down tomorrow. that's what we're going to do. >> reporter: the hotel heiress has helped change laws in five states and northern ireland and vows this is just the beginning. >> state protection is not enough. these kids need to be protected on the federal level in all 50 states. i won't stop until i see change. i just know the little girl in me would be so proud of the woman i am today. >> reporter: provo canyon school in utah is still operating today. when we reached out the school said it was sold in 2000 and is now under new management. they said they can't comment on anything that happened during the time paris was there. the school doesn't promote any form of abuse. michael? >> all right, kaylee, thank you so much. see more of kaylee's interview with paris hilton tonight on "nightline." robin? all week long, you kicked it off. >> i sure did.
