7:03 am
conference taking on all the critics of this historic iran nuclear deal and now the fight begins in congress. does the white house believe they can actually block a resolution of disapproval in the congress? the republican majority seems to be weighing in against it. >> reporter: they think they have a chance to do that. you need 60 votes to pass this. a resolution of this approval in the senate. right now the focus is all on democrats. vice president biden is back on capitol hill for the second day in a row meeting with democrats pleaing with them not to abandon the president on this deal. if they can hold democrats they can prevent a resolution of disapproval. >> congress has 60 days to weigh in. thanks very much. george while iran was the focus of the president's press conference he covered much more including allegations of sexual assault against bill cosby. the president asked about revoking the comedian's congressional medal of freedom and abc's linsey davis is here with more on that story. good morning to you, linsey. >> reporter: good morning, amy. no formal criteria for
7:04 am
recipients of the medal of freedom except in some way they have contributed richly to life. bill cosby received this in 2002. 13 years later there's a widespread push to take it back. pressure is mounting this morning for president obama to revoke bill cosby's presidential medal of freedom. so much so he even answered a question about it -- >> there's no precedent for revoking a medal. >> reporter: and then without ever saying bill cosby's name president obama added -- >> if you give a woman or a man, for that matter without his or her knowledge a drug and then have sex with that person without consent, that's rape. >> reporter: the nonprofit group promoting awareness victim empowerment or p.a.v.e. insists the president has several options to potentially get the medal back from cosby. >> when he spoke out today it was a small direction in the right direction but we need to
7:05 am
do more. >> bill cosby is a gifted comedian. >> reporter: p.a.v.e. wrote a letter asking for help from president bush who presented this to cosby. >> this was given to him under false pretenses. >> reporter: the group's petition has more than 11,000 signatures. 100,000 signatures would prompt an official white house response. a legal analyst who has spoken out in cosby's defense says the public needs to consider the details from the deposition in a broader context. >> there was no concession in any of the deposition testimony that was released or in any other document that i've reviewed that there was any drug given by mr. cosby to any other person without their knowledge. >> reporter: several of cosby's alleged victims now rallying on social media to get cosby stripped of the medal. the navy revoked his honor chief petty officer title but the hollywood chamber of commerce confirmed his star will not be removed from the walk of fame. we turn to the latest laser scare last night five different

planes landing in newark reporting a beam in the cockpit. the kind that can blind pilots at crucial moments. abc's david kerley is at reagan national airport with the story. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, george. this is very scary for pilots. the entire cockpit being lighted up by these lasers. this time it was newark and five different aircraft. just after 9:00 p.m. it started. newark air traffic control gets the call. >> 330 right we're now getting a laser at 10:00. >> who is getting a laser? >> united 330. >> reporter: over the next hour five jets hit by lasers approaching newark. >> for your information there's someone shooting a laser about four or five miles off our left wing. >> that just happened. >> affirmative. just maybe about four or five miles back. >> reporter: all of this six miles from the airport. >> laser event 10:00 runway 4 right clear to land. >> reporter: an american airlines flight from charlotte. >> and american 1976 checking in
7:07 am
wean we got the laser also. >> reporter: in the last year newark reported 28 laser pointing incidents. it's an epidemic nationwide with the fbi forming a task force trying to stop this dangerous practice which could temporarily blind a pilot during one of the most important parts of flight. >> it's not just a danger to the pilots as well as to the passengers, but to the people on the ground. >> reporter: now, the fbi is not catching every one of these people using these lasers but have caught some and, amy, they are sending them to prison. up to five years in prison if you're caught and convicted. >> all right, david, thank you for the very latest on that. new details on the escape of the notorious drug lord el chapo. this morning we are learning more about the breakout. a role a bird played and abc is the first american network to go inside his cell. abc's gio benitez has the latest from mexico. good morning, gio. >> reporter: amy, good morning to you. the cell is a lot smaller than you'd imagine.
7:08 am
it's where el chapo spent most of his time tucked away in one of the furthest corners of this prison. overnight abc news the first american media inside the maximum security prison. and up until just days ago held the world's most powerful drug trafficker joaquin "el chapo" guzman. with so many secure areas, an escape seems impossible but apparently not for one of the world's most deadly and dangerous kingpins. >> we are entering chapo's cell cell number 20. the same cell seen on surveillance video. >> here's that camera. there's that surveillance camera capturing el chapo removing his angle monitoring and disappearing in the shower. a blind spot for privacy. this is where he was pacing back and forth almost nervously and walks over here hidden by this wall. that camera couldn't see it. he just ducks and goes right into that hole. now word that officials reportedly found a small dead bird in el chapo's trash can
7:09 am
following the escape suggesting that el chapo's team sent a bird through the tunnel to test the air quality like a canary in a coal mine. el chapo able to breathe just fine through the tunnel ventilated and lit leading right to this half built house used to hide the tunnel's construction. >> quite frankly, nothing surprises me. their ability to corrupt -- they're so well financed. the good guy, we have limited resource and we have to play by the rules. un unlimited resources in organized crime and they make up the rules. >> reporter: authorities still don't know where el chapo is but some think he might be right back in his hometown where he's protected but many doubt he'll ever be caught. amy. >> all right, gio, thank you, like a canary in a coal mine. >> that agent not even surprised, amazing. we move on to caitlyn jenner's big moment accepting the arthur ashe courage award at last night's espys in l.a. robin was there and spoke to caitlyn right after her moving speech. hey, robin. >> reporter: hey, george, it was

7:11 am
people deserve something vital. they deserve your respect. >> reporter: jenner shooting down critics hopeful her journey will pave the way forrer os struggling. >> if you want to call me names, make jokes, doubt my intenses go ahead, because the reality is i can take it but for the thousands of kids out there coming to the terms with being true to who they are, they shouldn't have to take it. >> i knew arthur ashe. sat out there in the audience on many occasions and i thought to myself boy, what if someday i could make a difference in the world and do what i'm doing. i wonder if i did that. tonight was it. >> reporter: jenner moved to tears as she thanked her difference. >> the biggest fear in coming
7:12 am
