7:02 am
>> waking up with 5 -- >> there's room for growth and but the way my daughters use snapchat, i think they're going to get there. we've got much more on that coming up. first to the firestorm over attorney general jeff sessions now recusing himself from any investigation related to the trump campaign after reports he met with the russian ambassador before the election. our senior justice correspondent pierre thomas is starting us off in washington with more on that. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, amy. sessions' close ties with trump and the controversy surrounding those meetings with the russian ambassador prove too much. he will no longer oversee the fbi's investigation of russians' attack on last year's election. under mounting pressure from capitol hill, attorney general jeff sessions stepping aside. saying he will have nothing to do with any investigations involving the 2016 campaign including russia's effort to influence the election. >> i have now decided to recuse myself from any existing or future investigations of any
7:03 am
matter relating in any way to the campaigns for president of the united states. the decision to recuse himself coming amid reports that sessions met twice with the russian ambassador, during the summer before the election. one of those encounters took place at an event during the republican national convention where sessions used political funds from his re-election account to pay for his expenses explaining he only met the ambassador in his capacity as a senator. the controversy stemming from this statement during sessions' confirmation hearing. >> i did not have communications with the russians. >> reporter: last night on fox the attorney general said his testimony had been taken completely out of context. >> i think it was hyped beyond reason and i think it was unfair. >> reporter: but also stating thursday he wished he had been more precise. >> and in retrospect i should have slowed down and said that i did meet one russian official. >> reporter: he removed himself even though the white house said
7:04 am
he didn't have to. >> he was 100% straight with the committee. >> mr. president, should sessions recuse himself from investigations into your campaign and russia? >> i don't think so at all. >> reporter: overnight president trump releasing a statement saying that while sessions could have been more clear in his testimony, the democrats were engaging in a quote witch-hunt. this morning some are saying that just recusing himself is not enough. house minority leader nancy pelosi tweeting, ag sessions' sorry attempt to explain away his perjury is totally inadequate. he must resign immediately. sessions and his staff maintain his meetings with the russian ambassador were entirely appropriate and his answer during confirmation hearing was solely ailed at any suggestion he was communicating with the russians about the campaign. sessions said he recused himself after consulting with career attorneys at the justice department who recommended that he step aside, amy. >> and, pierre, "usa today" is reporting that two other trump advisers spoke with the russian enjoy at the republican convention this summer.
7:05 am
>> reporter: carter page, one of those associates acknowledged meeting with the russian ambassador. another example of contact. this explains why some investigators are so curious about so many encounters especially given russia is an adversary. >> thank you very much. more from jon karl at the white house. dan abrams our chief legal analyst right here. jon, you got the contacts piling up and you also have this cognitive distance. the white house appearing to disagree with their attorney general on the issue of recusal and agreeing with the russians on the issue of this being a witch-hunt the repor. >> reporter: at some point you get to wondering who didn't meet with the russian ambassador on this campaign. now, these contacts may have been fine. there may have been no problem with them. but the bottom line is we have been asking the question for weeks over and over again, who on the trump team had contacts with the russians and we learn more and more as we go along. this investigation truly is just
7:06 am
getting started. >> even though they've had denials about 20, 21 times. dan abrams, this issue of whether or not the attorney general was straight with the committee during the confirmation, the bar for perjury very high. >> let's separate out political from legal. wrong or inaccurate is not perjury. to get a perjury conviction, you need willful. you need intentional. he has to have done it on purpose and regardless of what you think about why he did it, how he said it, proving that he did it on purpose would be nearly impossible based on what we know right now. so, i think it is beyond unlikely that there's going to be a perjury indictment and, you know, it's not that dissimilar to what we talked about in the hillary clinton e-mail investigation which is wrong doesn't make it criminal. >> but the question is, has he done enough by recusing himself so will this put a damper on any other calls for independent investigations. >> no, i think it's actually going to increase it. why? now you have another official who is apparently having
7:07 am
conversations with the russians and as a result, typically it would be the attorney general who would call for a special counsel. now you're talking about deputy attorney general or an acting deputy attorney general who will make the decision about whether to call for a special counsel. special counsel would then investigate more broadly than just about sessions. that's going to be the big question in my mind which is will this administration appoint a special counsel to investigate beyond just congress and the fbi and the investigation. >> jon, indianapolis papers reporting that vice president mike pence when he was governor of indiana used a private e-mail account for government business. >> reporter: yeah, just as he was criticizing and the republicans criticizing hillary clinton strongly for her use of private e-mail. there are some significant differences here. pence was using an aol account. didn't have a private server. wasn't dealing with classified information. there is no indiana law that
7:08 am
says you cannot use a private e-mail as a government official, whereas at the state department there was a policy that suggested that for sensitive information. but it certainly doesn't look very good that at the very time they were hammering hillary clinton over private e-mail, the governor was using private e-mail. >> jon karl, dan abrams, thanks very much. now to the rapidly intensifying battle with al qaeda. the pentagon confirming to abc news just moments ago there was another new round of air strikes in yemen overnight following that january raid that killed navy s.e.a.l. ryan owens. abc's chief investigative correspondent brian ross is here with that. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. for u.s. navy s.e.a.l.s and the army's delta force this is not what they call go time. commandos being told to expect much more action against al qaeda in yemen following the 20 new air strikes on thursday and now the new ones overnight. these photos were posted on twitter overnight from yemen described by local residents as a new u.s. military operation. u.s. military special operations
7:09 am
personnel tell abc news that commandos based in the region have been told to expect a lot more action against suspected terror targets under the trump administration. not deterred, they say, by the loss of a u.s. navy s.e.a.l. in a raid on this suspected terror compound in yemen in january. and possibly the deaths of many civilians. local residents showed pictures of a $75 million u.s. aircraft that was abandoned and purposely destroyed in the operation. but u.s. officials continue to maintain that what happened here was a success based on documents discovered in computers and phones seized in the raid including officials tell abc news what they are calling a global address book of al qaeda operatives. president trump alluded to it all in his speech before congress after introducing the widow of the dead s.e.a.l. ryan owens. >> i just spoke to our great general mattis just now, who reconfirmed that and i quote,
7:10 am
ryan was a part of a highly successful raid that generated large amounts of vital intelligence that will lead to many more victories in the future against our enemy. >> reporter: the al qaeda group in yemen is considered the group most likely to carry out an attack against the u.s. its master bombmaker has been a top priority but no indication these latest raids or air strikes did anything to take him out, george. >> boy, that was really something. they are intensifying. >> absolutely. >> thanks, brian. back at home health care battle heating up on capitol hill as gop leaders try to unite around a plan to repeal and replace obamacare. they're being hit by democrats and some republicans for keeping their plan secret under lock and key. our congressional correspondent mary bruce tracking the search. what's going on here and what do we know about the new bill? 20 million americans are waiting to see what's going to happen with their coverage and now there's a new draft to overhaul
7:11 am
obamacare and a bit of a new fight to go along with it. house republicans are keeping this new draft under wraps for now as they make revisions but that is not sitting well with democra democrats who are eager to see what they're up against and republicans who opposed an earlier version. now, senator rand paul is blasting the secrecy and yesterday he went on a bit of a public hunting expedition going through the basement of the capitol to try to find the document but he said it's being held like a national secret and even leader pelosi offering to help tweeting she would be willing to release the hounds, george. >> they are going after it and they have to keep it secret because they know the trade-offs are tough here and once the details get out it's going to anger and enrage one faction or for. >> reporter: absolutely and house republicans here are simply being extra cautious especially after an earlier version leaked and then was met with some pretty swift opposition so for now just the republicans on this house committee that are drafting the bill are able to see it. but, george, that could change soon expecting to bring it up
7:12 am
for consideration next week. >> they want to get it done by easter. >> let's bring in matt dowd to talk about it. the original affordable care act was also drafted in secrecy but how often does this sort of thing happen? >> this reminds me of the "highlight" magazine your kids do, find the hidden picture. it's not unusual for them to be drafted confidentially in a way that is not shared. it is unusual that members of your own that want to see it they won't show it to them. >> president trump's week started off with a high note with the speech. now we have the sessions situation where he recused himself. how should the trump administration be handling this big turn of events? >> if you took a strategy of how not to handle it they've done the strategy of how not to handle this. first they have to tell the truth and be honest. that's the overall arching thing. i looked at this like a traffic light strategy which is green, go ahead and get all of the information out there as quickly as possible and don't let the press drip, drip, drip this.
7:13 am
yellow, caution. use your words correctly, concisely and don't parse. if you're parsing, you're losing. stop using the word witch-hunt. last time it was wrong was in salem, massachusetts. so in this case usually in a witch-hunt there is a witch around. >> seems like on all three the white house going in the opposite direction. do you think they're going to be able to hole the line against these other investigations? >> no, i think this is full scale where there's smoke and where there's a lot of smoke there's fire. when you talk to republicans in the course of this, they know there's a problem here, they're going to have to figure a way to clear it up as fast as they k the russian ambassador, i have to say feels like the forrest gump. everywhere there's something going around the russian ambassador seems to be pictured
7:14 am
this morning, though, cleveland, ohio, 77 a week ago waking up. they feel like.
7:15 am
>> reporter: that's 18-year-old nicholas dike ma running from police. he crashes into a ditch. and now sheriff's deputies are trying to get into the lead of vehicles. he hits the gas but police drag them out of the side door. this morning his family admits he was on drugs but they feel what happens next is murder. >> taken from the vehicle, put him in the road and got on top of him. >> reporter: you see it clearly. one of the deputies keeps leaning his knee onto their son's neck and then turns him around and does it again. a state autopsy says it's one of the reasons he died. compression of the neck and tore sew.
7:16 am
>> turn him on his side. >> nicolas, wake up. >> reporter: the family waited too long. >> we're not getting anywhere. >> they are suing. >> it killed him and i got a problem with them. they should be held accountable. >> reporter: the deputy was fired after being criminally charged. the other three this morning are on regular duty. the family says their son was struggling with addiction and shouldn't have run from police in 2015. but they say that was no reason for him to die. amy. >> all right, steve osunsami, thank you. a consumer alert this morning. the cdc sounding the alarm about an e. coli outbreak across several states and says the likely source is i.m. healthy soy nut butter products. if you have them it is recommended that you do not eat or serve them. the outbreak has so far affected at least a dozen people and
7:17 am
expected to learn today which states are affected. michael. >> amy, turning now a little lighter subject, former president who is back in the spotlight, george w. bush has been on tour talking about his new book of paintings and stopped by jimmy kimmel and had funny stuff to say. take a look. >> when your vice president dick cheney, when he shot that guy in the face, did it ever seem funny at all to you? >> well, every time cheney would come in, a lot of people would yell duck. >> were you jealous of the size of the crowds at trump's inauguration? >> i was there. >> i know you were. there. >> i was the guy trying to put the -- >> the poncho. >> yeah, we noticed that actually. >> how are your parents doing, by the way. >> thank you for asking. they're doing great. [ cheers and applause ]

you know, when he came out to flip the coin at the super bowl, it was a very joyful moment. >> i would imagine so. i think it was for the whole country really -- >> he's a great guy. >> i can't help but feel like maybe he was faking it a little just so he didn't have to go to the inauguration. he's no dummy. >> he got a real laugh out of the president there. >> i love to see that natural laugh out of him. talking about also the first time he went to the white house, the 1969 -- pulled up in his purple gremlin to take richard nixon's daughter trisha on a date. >> what? >> that was set up by his dad. oh, yeah. talk about pressure. >> the things you learn on "kimmel." >> okay. let ago back over to ginger. >> it could end up in washington, d.c., the earliest cherry blossoms on record. actual air testers in washington, d.c. 35.

7:42 am
the quality of the photo and audio clip, the only people that know who this is is somebody who's had a long relationship with this person whether family or friends and they're probably struggling with loyalty but this is a horrible person and we thought $200,000 is a life-changing amount of money. and hopefully we just spread the word across the country and find the monster and get him off the street good for america and indiana and good for everybody and this will be a great story about the world coming together to catch one monster. >> let's hope so. i know you're hoping to go to delphi soon and meet with the families. >> yeah, i can't wait to get up to delphi and meet the people because this is such a small town as it was reported in the story, only 3,000 people and we just want people to know and i think this is -- there's a lot of division that is publicly stated and talked abouten 0 the news but i think america as a whole, a community, if you're from a small town we got your back and i can't wait to get up there and meet the families and hopefully although this is a terrible time for delphi and the families with the loss of two

back now with our big board and dan abrams is here at the table. we'll get to your story in just a second there, dan. first we got that big question, could your rental car company be ripping you off? the city of san francisco is suing hertz paying excessive amounts in toll fees across the golden gate bridge and david kerley is joining us now. what is the city accusing hertz
7:46 am
of doing? >> when you rent a car it often as a transponder and going through a toll it will trigger it and the companies are charging a convenience fee and what san francisco is alleging hertz is charging that every day even if you don't go through another toll up to 25 bucks for your rental. and hertz says they won't comment. they're in the middle of a lawsuit but it's not just in san francisco, a new mexico senator sent this letter to the ftc saying, listen, sometimes rental companies are charging five times the tolls in these convenience fees. one estimate puts it at $250 million that the car companies, the rental car companies are making from these fees. >> when you get the bill and sometimes you're like, wow, that was more than i thought. what did people need to know when they rent a car. what questions should they ask? >> looking for is the point,
7:47 am
amy. you feed to look at the fine print, right. it says, listen if you trigger a toll we'll charge you this convenience fee. so look at it, try to opt out. in that san francisco case, san francisco is saying that hertz makes it difficult to opt out. if you have a transponder bring it along with you and use your transponder if it works in the city you're in and ultimate thing stay away from the tolls. take another route. use your gps to say go around the tolls. don't want to be charged. >> good advice. i'm digging the vest. safety first. >> thank you, david. all right, next up we've got a battle of the trump impersonators after the president announced he is skipping the white house correspondents' dinner. a slew of actors including alec baldwin offering to stand in for trump but baldwin on wednesday night's "jimmy kimmel" taking aim at a rival comedian. take a look. >> interesting how there are people now that he's not going to the white house correspondents' dinner there are people lobbying to play trump at

the white house correspondents' dinner and a couple guys on the internet, no, please, i'm the only man who should play trump. >> all right. so we've got dan abrams here and apparently baldwin's comments on kimmel sparked a twitter war. tell us what happened. >> there are two guys who have been doing this impersonation of trump and bernie sanders, anthony tamanac and james domi and clearly tamanac believes it's a reference to him and makes a comment about baldwin and baldwin makes a snarky response. adamian says anthony atam nuke auditioned for "snl" last year and then they used his audition tape to rip. alec baldwin never shy to a fight says, oh, james, i'd sue for you but the only thing you have is bitterness and obscurity. bottom line is alec baldwin is
7:49 am
not going to sue. i didn't that you can to alec baldwin but this but i am telling you as a matter of law when looking at the tweets he's not going to sue. but it is interesting -- an interesting legal question on the impercent nations. >> well, you know, let's look at the impersonations talking about them, let's judge for ourself. here they are back-to-back. >> i am so excited to live in the white house. i'm even going to have a little pet like all the presidents do, bill clinton had socks, barack obama had beau. >> i love christie. i threw a paper clip at him during one of the debates and it went into orbit and i promise you if i become president we will name it a moon in our solar system. >> so, both clearly believe that alec baldwin kind of knocked off that -- >> aren't they just knocking off trump? >> exactly, exactly. >> he's knocking off somebody. >> how much different can you be when you're -- >> one of the big claims is the use of the word jina for china.
7:50 am
no one is suing anybody but it's interesting to think about this idea of could someone sue -- >> can you? >> it would be really hard. really hard. >> that's good. >> to win. >> can't we just laugh? >> so, i don't think it's going to happen. >> let's enjoy both of their impersonations. >> exactly. but the fight -- i enjoy watching the twitter wars, as well. >> dan, david, thank you both. coming up next ginger has the story about a snow tornado moving through colorado and then paris jackson's breakout moment. how she is honoring her father michael jackson's legacy.

8:24 am
turning color. >> exactly. this is an oil stain that has not been treated. to be clear it wasn't take the stain out. something you have to remember, some stain removal will not come out right away, takes a little effort and time, however, you will need to get this dry cleaned. if you don't treat it, the dry cleaner probably can't get it out, if you do this, they will. >> two things you need to tell a person, i'm doing this to take the stain out. >> yes, i watch "good morning america" and read "good housekeeping," i know what's up. >> and secondly, the second thing is with all of these things, these are things you do immediately which is only going to help you later on. may not come out immediately. >> you have to have patience. you have to have a little patience and put a little effort. i'll come around you, sir. >> i've seen this ketchup on the rug? here we go. so first thing you want to do if you have ketchup like this, anything that makes like a mound, gently scrape it off so

don't rub. the idea with stain removal. you never want, see, i just scraped it off. >> don't rub and don't use the ketchup. throw it away. >> exactly. you can't use that for your five and the next thing, blot. do a dry blot. >> blotting is a common denominator. take nothing else away know the importance of the blot. then what we've done here is made a solution, one tablespoon dish liquid, one tablespoon white vinegar, two cups of warm water then dip it. michael, never pour the solution ag to remember you always want to work from the outside in, why? because you don't want to spread the stain. you'll want to rinse that, doing this a little quickly because we're short on time. the key thing that our cleaning director always says, her little trick and works brilliantly, put this on overnight, take something heavy. just layer the paper towels,
8:26 am
take something heavy and let it sit 24 hours, whichever stains were in the pile will rise up. >> rise up, everybody. yes, they are. lori, thank you very much. more hacks go to our website and get all the details. freddie stroma and josh bowman are here when we come back. mora

[ applause ] so, how excited are you that tesla is actually using your idea? >> i'm really, really excited and i didn't think that would happen. i didn't even think he would answer. and i was just -- i'm so, so happy. >> do you have any suggestions of what they should do in terms of this ad? what would you write? what would you say? >> something that will like entertain people and like get their attention. >> so, bria, how did you get into tesla? >> well, my dad writes about cars and he is always talking about it so i kind of like learned about it from him and other family members.
8:37 am
>> and you think it's a pretty cool car? >> yeah, i think it's really cool. >> good taste. so are you going to get involved in the contest? do you have an idea for an ad? >> well, i don't know have a tesla car but i might -- i don't know though. i'm still deciding. >> well, you know what, bria, you know what this means, your dad has to buy you a tesla car. how about that? >> i like that. [ applause ] >> i think elon musk can spring for one after you gave him the idea. >> i do too. he's going to get a free marketing campaign. we love that. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> good to talk to you. >> she's got six years before she can drive. >> great to see somebody so young and so smart -- writes that letter and throws it out there and gets a response from elon musk which is awesome on his part as well.
