1:02 am
counsel, where else, on twitter, alleging his 2016 campaign was spied on, even predicting an ensuing scandal be, quote, bigger than watergate. this high-stakes standoff, pitting president trump, the republican chair of the intelligence house committee devin nunes against the intelligence agencies. they warn publicly identifying the source would put lives in danger and compromise ongoing operations. just yesterday fbi director appoint bid president trump, chris wray, said this. >> the day that we can't protect human sources is the day the american people start becoming less safe. >> white house lawyer rudy giuliani telling the washington post the president believes some have been conspiring against him, giuliani also suggesting that the bureau may have embedded a spy in the trump campaign.
1:03 am
listen to this exchange between a reporter and press secretary sarah sanders. >> does president trump believe that the fbi had a spy, at one point, inside his campaign? >> i haven't spoken with him directly about that but certainly have seen the reports and if there is any truth to that, it should certainly be looked into. >> the idea of an informant inside the trump campaign originated with testimony by glenn simpson. now he is the co-founder of fusion gps, the firm that authored the unverified dossier on the president. simpson testified the former british agent who investigated trump told him the fbi had intelligence frrom, quote, an internal trump campaign source. simpson was actually referring to someone from outside the campaign who contacted the fbi. >> stay tuned there. meanwhile, president trump says u.s. and north korean officials are moving forward with preparations for a summit in singapore next month, despite threats from pyongyang to pull
1:04 am
out of talks over the shall of denuclearization, the president also assuring kim jong-un he will remain in power if he abandons his nuclear weapons program. >> and contradicting john bolton, dismissing the notion of applying the so-called libya model. he was referring to the dismantling of the nuclear program and its weapons of mass destruction but the president seemed to be focused on the military operation that removed qadhafi eight years later. >> we have very much in mind the libya model from 2003, 2004. the libya program was much smaller, but that was basically the agreement that we made. >> the libyan model is not a model we have at all when we're thinking of north decreea. in libya, we decimated that country. that country was decimated. there was no deal to keep qadhafi. the libyan model that was
1:05 am
mentioned was a much different deal. >> got that? let's bring in paula hancocks to unwrap all of this this morning, live from seoul. it appears the national security adviser is talking about 2003, 2004 and the president is talking about some eight years later. what do you make of all this and what's the reaction? >> well, david, it's interesting. even though you've got that disconnect between the national security adviser and u.s. president talking about completely different things, in north korea's mind these two would be linked. when they're saying they don't want to be like libya, they're not just thinking about having that libyan model of the denuclearization deal, they are thinking about what happened in 2011 when the leader, momar qadhafi, lost his life by rebels backed by washington. pyongyang doesn't want to be another libya, another iraq. that's the reason they've given the need for their nuclear weapons, saying it's an
1:06 am
insurance policy. we also heard the u.s. president mentions president xi jinping of china. this article suggesting that they wouldn't want to meet the u.s. if the u.s. was going to push them into a corner, going to insist on unilateral nuclear disarmament. that came shortly after that trip with president xi. mr. trump making a connection there. there is a sense that some realism has been injected into this summit. no one expected it to be smooth. no one expected it to be easy. but at this point, most people do expect it to go ahead. dave? >> paula hancocks live for us in seoul. thank you. china may make a big concession to president trump, offering to buy $200 billion more in u.s. goods. in washington, it's round two of trade talks between the u.s. and china. china offered to buy more merch
1:07 am
goods, slashing the u.s. trade deficit with china by more than $200 billion. reuters is reporting that china denies this. china may struggle, though, to buy $200 billion more. it bought only about $130 billion last year. its two biggest purchases, planes and soybeans. a deal could ramp up sales for boeing. china is its second largest market or eliminate the current tariffs on $4 billion worth of u.s. farm products. also unclear, what china wants in return. though the u.s. is already working to lift a ban crippling the chinese tech giant zte. trump administration set to announce a new rule today aimed squarely at planned parenthood. clinics that provide abortions or even discussed options would
1:08 am
be stripped of federal funding. the new white house policy would force those services to be performed in a different place and by different employees if that facility is to keep federal funding. >> the leak that have horrible john mccain joke leading to some operational changes in the white house communications office. according to a senior white house official, the daily staff meeting has not been held for several days and is not likely to resume. that's because someone leak aide kelly sadler's remark about senator mccain's opinion not mattering since, quote, he's dying anyway. staffers are now gathering separately in smaller groups, we're told, to streamline the operation and maybe make it easier to identify any leakers. gina haspel, president's controversial nominee for cia
1:09 am
director has become confirmed. roller coaster ride for her nomination which appeared to be in serious danger, the post 9/11 interrogation and detention program. republican senators opposed haspel but six democrats backed her. most of the democratic support coming from senators up for re-election in states won by president trump in 2016. house republican leaders vowing to hold a vote on conservative immigration bill. gop leaders are attempting to appease competing interests of immigration on both ends of their party. conservatives were holding up a forward on immigration. but just a few votes away, including the proposal to save the daca program. >> trying to use a procedure that would let them bypass legislative roadblocks. outgoing house speaker paul ryan doesn't see the tactic working.
1:10 am
>> the question is, can we get legislation to the floor that has a chance of making it into law. it's futile to bring a discharge through that would guarantee nothing goes into law. >> many moderate republicans pushing for a vote are facing races, tough ones, in november. member of the house committee on science, space and technology has his own theory on rising sea levels. rocks. republican congressman mo brooks of alabama denying the vast body of research showing rising sea levels over the past 100 years are a product of a changing climate. here is his exchange with climate change researcher philip duffy. >> every time you have that soil or rock, whatever it is, that is deposited into the seas, that forces the sea levels to rise. now you've got less space in those oceans because the bottom is moving up. all of that displaces water, which forces it to rise. does it not? >> i'm pretty sure on human time
1:11 am
scales those are minuscule effects. >> so not rising sea levels but rising sea bottom levels. a day later the republican-led committee tweeted a link denying climate change is causing sea levels to rise. >> rocks. they fall in and they -- that's based on science, right? kilauea volcano erupts, sending ash 30,000 feet into the air. new lava flow from reactivated fissures. more from hawaii, next.

similar eruption in 1924 that lasted 2 1/2 weeks. overnight, several fissures reactivating with lava flows and leilani estates, that entire region devastated. we get more now from stephanie elam. >> reporter: dave and christine, it was an early morning weak-up call as kilauea continues to erupt. a sharp plume came into the sky about 30,000 feet. scientists do believe this was in line with that lava getting below the water table and water and lava mixing, causing these erupti eruptions. there are still people who live in leilani estates and gardens. this was the road. you can see the power lines down and the sea of lava. this road used to drop off, i'm told. now it's rising up into a mountain of molten rock that's
1:17 am
still steaming. you can hear the crunch of the rocks underneath us and these massive fissures that are opening. it's not clear if they will turn into the fissures that will ooze gas and lava but still people here have been watching to see if it will engulf their homes and in some cases, it has already done that. this next story is for you migraine sufferers, first drug for migraines. once a month shot saw their migraines cut from eight days to four on average with some minor side effects. it costs $6900 a year without insurance. three other injectable migraine drugs are expected next year and several pills to prevent migraines are now being tested. delivering that racist rant in a new york city cafe has done it before, two new videos

green, that's where the national weather service has issued the flash flood watch. in terms of rainfall totals, remember, we've had continuous days of rain throughout this region. so this is additional rainfall on what's already fallen, 2 to 4 inches not out of the question for southern maryland, eastern virginia and portions of coastal north and south carolina. due to a stationary front. that will keep our hot and humid conditions in place for these locations. middle and upper 70s for the carolinas. 67 for d.c. 65 for new york city. and a cool day tomorrow with chances of rain but warming up nicely to end off the weekend. 80 by sunday. back to you. >> thanks. if meeting your in-laws was tough, welcome to meghan markle's world. her mom meets the queen today, ahead of tomorrow's royal wedding. we're live in windsor. my name is jeff sheldon,

1:27 am
the waistline. >> do you have a fascinator for tomorrow? do you have a pretty hat? >> i'm not. i didn't actually get an invite to the wedding itself and so on that i'm rebelling and i'm not going to wear a fascinator. >> in your journalistic professionalism you're covering the wedding for us. >> bright pink, dave looks great in it. >> i'll put that on twitter, i'm not afraid. she expose aid different fascinator in my office so now there's mystery over what alisyn will wear tomorrow. one is blue, one is pink. >> interesting. part of an effort to undermine the russian probe, the bureau scrambling to minimize the fallout.

1:34 am
he is even predicting an ensuing scandal will be bigger than watergate. the high-stakes standoff pitting president trump and the republican chairman of the house intelligence committee devin nunes, against the justice department and intelligence agencies. their leaders warn identifying the source would put lives in danger. chris wray, the fbi director, appointed by trump, said this. >> the day that we can't protect human sources is the day the american people start becoming less safe. >> white house lawyer rudy giuliani telling the washington post the president believes some law enforcement officials have been conspiring against him. giuliani also suggesting that the bureau might have embedded a spy inside the trump campaign. listen to this exchange between a reporter and press secretary sarah sanders. >> does president trump believe that the fbi had a spy at one point inside his campaign? >> i haven't spoken with him
1:35 am
directly about that but certainly have seen the reports, and if there is any truth to that, it should certainly be looked into. >> the idea of an informant inside the trump campaign originated with testimony by this man, glenn simpson, co-founder of the firm that authored the unverified dossie rch on the president. he testified he was told that the fbi had intelligence from, quote, an internal trump campaign source. but then a source close to simpson later said he was referring to someone outside the campaign who had contacted the fbi. >> i need another cup of coffee. president trump says u.s. and north korean officials are moving forward with preparations for a summit in singapore next month despite threats from pyongyang to pull out of talks over the issue of denuclearization. the president also assuring kim jong-un he will remain in power if he abandons his nuclear weapons program. >> contradicting his own national security adviser john bolton, dismissing the notion of
1:36 am
applying the so-called libya model to north korea. bolton was refer together dismantling of the libya's weapons of mass destruction but the president focused on the military operation eight years later that removed moammar qadhafi from power. >> we have the model from 2003, 2004. there are differences, the libyan model was much smaller. >> the libyan model isn't a model that we have at all when we're thinking of north decreea. in liba we decimated that country. that country was decimated. there was no deal to keep qadhafi. the libyan model that was mentioned was a much different deal. >> let's bring in paula hancocks live from seoul. clearly, we know these remarks from bolton really angered the north koreans. where do we stand now? >> well, christine, at this
1:37 am
point, as far as we know, the summit is being planned as expected, but certainly the north koreans were annoyed by those libya comments. the fact is even though john bolton was talking about something different than what the u.s. president was talking about when it comes to libya, for the north koreans that, is one in the same thing, when they've been talking consistently over recent years, saying that they didn't want to be a libya, they didn't want to be an iraq, they are talking about how the ending came for the leaders of those countries. so for them it's one in the same. we do have some information just coming into us in the past few minutes as well that north korea has rejected the visa applications for all south korean journalists who were wanting to go to the shutdown of the nuclear test site. earlier, they said north korean and south korean journalists would be invited to witness that shutdown along with experts.
1:38 am
surface we know at this point those visa applications have been rejected. >> that's a big reversal. didn't the north koreans invite the foreign press corps to come and see this digs mantling of this facility? >> that's right. when they announced that they were going to shut down this nuclear test site in the northeast of the country, they specified south korean journalists and american journalists, because they said they wanted it to be transparent. they wanted to have expert there is as well. this is a site where all six of the nuclear tests have taken place. so they made quite a thing about wanting this to be very public. but now we know, at least from the south korean side, that the visas have been rejected. >> fascinating. paula, thank you so much for that, in seoul for us this morning. excitement overnight. u.s. officials say china plans to buy $200 billion in u.s. goods, making a big concession to president trump and now this morning china's foreign minister throwing cold water on that. in washington it's round two of
1:39 am
trade talks between the u.s. and china. u.s. officials say china offered to buy more in u.s. goods, slashing the trade deficit by $200 billion. and then china denies it. that top line number matches what the u.s. demanded in beijing two weeks ago. if this were to happen, china would struggle to buy $200 billion more in u.s. goods. it only bought $130 billion overall last year. the two biggest purchases were planes and soy beans. a deal could ramp up sales for boeing if they were to try to reach that $200 billion number, or china would have to eliminate the tariffs on farm products. also unclear what china wants in return. though the u.s. is working to lift a crippling ban on china company zte. news just now from china's foreign ministry that, no, they have not offered to do that. bilateral consultations are still under way, an untrue rumor
1:40 am
coming from the u.s. side. they say don't over interpret or overthink their investigation of u.s. sorgum. >> they want high-tech goods after tianamen square. trump administration set to announce a new rule today aimed squarely at planned parenthood. clinics that provide abortions or even discuss the procedure with patients would be stripped of federal funds under the new regulation. family planning laws prevent direct federal funding of abortions. they still accept federal dollars for annual screenings and checkups. those services would be forced to be performed in a different place than abortions and by different employees if that
1:41 am
facility is to keep its funding. gina haspel, trump's nominee for cia director winning confirmation by 54-45 vote, culmination of a roller coaster ride, her nomination, which appeared to be in danger over haspel's role in the post 9/11 interrogation and detention program. three republican senators opposed haspel but six democrats backed her, most of those supporte supporters up from re-election in states where president trump won in 2016. mo brooks of alabama denying the vast body of research denying that rising sea levels are part of a climate change. here is his exchange with researcher philip duffy. >> every time you have that soil or rock, everything that it is
1:42 am
deposited into the seas, that forces sea levels to rise now. you have less space in those oceans because the bottom is moving up. all of that displaces water, which forces it to rise, does it not? >> i'm pretty sure on human time scales those are minuscule effects. >> on human time scales. a day later republican-led committee tweeted a link denying climate change is causing sea levels to rise. all right. the kilauea volcano erupts from its peak. ash, 30,000 feet into the air. overnight, new lava flow, reactivated fissures. more from hawaii, next.

volcano shooting ash 30,000 feet into air. officials warning everyone to stay indoors after handing out masks. so far this event is mirroring a similar eruption in 1924 that lasted 2 1/2 weeks. several fissures reactivating overnight. leilan estates, that entire region devastated. more now from stephanie elam. >> reporter: dave and christine, it was an early morning wake-up call as kilauea continues to erupt. a sharp plume came into the sky about 30,000 feet, they stim. they've not been able to look inside just yet but scientists do believe it was in line with that steam event, the water getting below the water table and the lava and water mixing, causing these eruptions. while that is happening there's still the issue of people who live in leilani estates and
1:56 am
gardens. it also looks like we're on a different planet when you get to see up close what the lava has done inside the estates. this is the first real look we've been able to have, to see what it's done to this neighborhood. it doesn't even look like homes were here. this was a road. you can see the power lines down and the sea of lauva. this road used to drop off, i'm told. now it's rising up into a mountain of molten rock that is still seam iing. you can still hear the crunch of the rocks underneath us and these massive fissures that are opening. it's not clear if it will turn into the fissures that will ooze gas and then lava. still, this is what people in the neighborhood have been watching to see if it will engulf their homes and in some cases it has already done that. >> stephanie elam, thank you. the first drug designed to prevent migraines approved, the sale of aimovig in one month.
