8:05 am
countries. >> clearly there is no e-mail that says i will do x for y. there are not tens of thousands of e-mails because they have been erased from an e-mail server and there is a lot of questions around that. but the bottom line is all of this laid out, the clinton campaign pushes back a tangled web of conspiracy theories and raises questions about ethics, politics and the interaction of a transactional political system. and questions that hilary clinton will likely have to answer at some point whether from a group of reporters on the trail in nevada or a one-on-one interview. we have interviewed her before and she is welcome on special report any time. >> the head of the clinton organization is going to refile tax forms suggesting it is more about housekeeping not

8:07 am
is it? >> they are. and they are putting out a memo we are turned the corner according to the memo out this morning. the author has conceded his conspiracy theories lack any evidence. i think there are more questions about the ethics and interactions and one thing leading to another thing. whether this sticks we will see. you will have to hear from hilary clinton herself probably. >> let's talk about somebody well about the pack of people running against her on the democratic side for the presidential nomination. new concerns about the crowded republican field for the 2016 presidential race. there are fears that the evangelical vote which is prominent in iowa and south

8:09 am

8:10 am
the worst mass shooting in the history and the amount of evidence is overwhelming this is by no means a slam dunk. he has pled not guilty of reason of insanity in colorado where the pressure is on to prove he is insane. the defense doesn't have to show anything but they will. the defense will say he didn't know right from wrong during his psychotic break and that is the clue knowing right and wrong. >> reporter: opening statements are underway. survivors and family members of those killed will be in the courtroom today. we heard from the families with who joined in the signed letting urging media outlets to remember who this is about. not the suspect but the victims.

8:20 am
[applause] >> the reason eric's been so nice to me as valerie can tell you is he was on the two-person committee to decide who to chose as vice president. he owed me for what he did. no i am joking. that is a joke. chris, that was a joke. it has been a great honor of my life but he is also one of the great friends in my life. we sat next to each other in cabinet meetings. there was a protocol where he would be seated. you will sit on my left during those cabinet meetings and eric sat there and i don't know how many meetings we have had in the situation room likely the fbi director here issue after issue nasa security terrorism,

8:22 am
is a baptist minister and preacher, will teach you how to make things better. so as i read your dad always taught you to stand up for what is right, speak out for what is just get up when you get knocked down, and move on. if there is anything you should know about lynch, she acceled in everything she did from the time she was a child. she was never lowered by the expectations of others and always exceeded the expectations set for herself. top of the class in high school, got into a lot of universitiess dicideed to go to harvard, harvard undergrad, law school and did well as an inspiring lawyer. for 30 years she has been a first-rate fair minded

8:24 am
director comb. she said she is a great prosecutor because of it. she has the ability to strengthen the relationship between law enforcement and communities. folks say i trust those people patrick heard me say this many times in public life, who arrive at the right decision not through a new examination and arrives there starting with the gut, going to the heart and spoken with a fine mind. that is how this woman is. that is how loretta gets it right and the president and i can't wait to start working with. her priority is using every tool available to disrupt attacks against the homeland and terror to justice. she will enhance the capacity to combat cyber attacks and cyber
8:25 am
crimes and continue to pursue and prosecute those who prey on the most need of our protection. and she will meet with the humble and fierce determination to stand up for what is right and not yield to anyone. i will close with this. i imagine being the daughter of an english teacher my angels' words have never been too far from loretta and her thinking. my angela once said in a straight forward manner if someone shows you who they are believe them. if someone shows you who they are believe them. a very simplistic phrase but pretty profound. she has shown us her entire life who she is so believe her.

[applause] >> i hope you know without him
8:31 am
i would not be standing here before you today, having just been sworn in at the 83rd attorney general of the united states of america. just one week after his 83rd birthday. and of course my mother who could not be here today but who was never far from my heart or thoughts. my mother grew up in a world where she was told what she could not do but she knew she could swore and she did in her small north carolina town. she raised a daughter who she told whatever your dream is -- to be a lawyer prosecutor or attorney general -- of course you can. i thank her as well. i have to thank my wonderful husband who supported all of my
8:32 am
choices and dreams. i would not trade his love and support for all of the riches in the world because to me they are all of the riches in the world. [applause] >> tremendous thanks to my colleagues and friends in the department of justice in the eastern district of new york and beyond. even more than that thanks goes to the people who could not be here today, the literally thousands of people many of whom i have never met personally who expressed their support throughout the process. from the sisterhood of my sorority and all of the greeks who came together to the churches and schools who rote letters and calls. from the people on the street that stopped me with a word or two please know sometimes those word made all of the
8:33 am
difference to me as i travelled the road and thank you. i thank you again as i stand prepared to join this amazing group. it has been the honor of my life to stand shoulder to shoulder with you twice before from the eastern district of new york. you are the ones who made real the promise of justice and redress for all-americans. i am honored beyond word to step in the this larger role as your attorney general as we continue the core work of our mission; the protection of the american people. all of us here at the department are here because at some point and maybe we were just a little girl or boy we had i want to be a lawyer. i want to be a law enforcement officer. i want to be a federal agent. i want to be someone's hero. at the heart of that, for me certainly and for all of us whether attorney or agent, staff
8:34 am
or principle it a desire to leave this world a better place for us having been a part of it. and the challenge in that for you, for me for all of us that love this department and the law, is to use the law to that end. to not just represent the law and to enforce the law. but to use it to make real the promise of america. the promise of fairness and equalty, liberty and justice for all. i have been reminded recently we are all just here for a time. whether in this building or even on this earth but the values we hold dear will live on after we leave this stage. it is our responsibility and our mission while we are here to breathe life into them and view them with the weight of our efforts. i know this can be done. i am here to tell you. if a little girl from north
8:35 am
carolina who used to tell her grand father in the fields to lift him up on the back of his mule so she could she up high can grow up to become the chief law enforcement officer of the united states of america we can do anything. [applause] >> we can improve our criminal justice system with strength and fairness for the protection of the victims and rights of all. we can restore trust in our laws and in those of us who enforce them.

8:38 am
show host and a fox news con tributer. alan will that affect campaign? >> no. you know peter was on two shows saying no evidence no smoking gun, those who want to smear her wile try to use this to do so. we have a history of money in politics. the average voter's eyes accept this is the way it is done. whether it is cheney and halliburton or bush and the carisle group with the defense contracts. don't hold the clinton's to a different standard. >> he said there is no smoking gun but there is a troubling pattern of behaviors and results. >> there is a smokeing server. this is and what is interesting about the book is it a
8:39 am
collection of information from news resources and previously reported details, and the importance is the context and collection that shows the pattern. it is not new with the clinton's either. we know the clinton pattern in general. we know what they are made of and this confirms that. it is never really i don't think about criminality which may be a factor but the question is do the american people want to go through this again? did i believe they need better? do they believe they can find better? >> the author ran into a real brick wall of spectism at abc over the weekend. watch this. >> we found no proof of direct action and an independent government expert wrote this saying there is no smoking gun, no evidence policy was changed
8:40 am
based on donations. is there a smoking gun? >> it is in the pattern of behavior. it is like insider training is the analogy i would give you. >> why a double standards? let's have the same standard for everybody. diane swayer worked for nixon. >> yeah but she is not covering nixon now. someone should have dealt with that who didn't have a tie. abc had to assign someone differently to do that interview. i think the author should be grilled and the american people will make up their own mind. but for someone like this it is ridiculous. >> isn't the parent company from fox publishing this?
8:41 am
there are so many interlookingckinterlocking parts you could find conflict everywhere you go. >> david burke noted how shocking this was. if your line in the campaign is there is no evidence you have a problem. elect me for president there is no evidence. >> prove the evidence there is a quid pro quo. >> sometimes if is circumstantial efforts circumstantial evidence. >> that will not end the campaign. >> and it is not going to make her president. >> we will leave it there. thank you, both. a story you have to hear before booking your family vacation. my europe maybe more affordable than you think suddenly.

you are planning a vacation. this summer is a great time to go to europe. here with tips summer hoe who is a travel bloger and renea who is a driver bloger for delta points. thank you were joining us. >> good to be here. >> summer what is your first tip? i will start with you. and the best way to get a cheap air airfar air airfare. >> they are tweeting out $600 or less to europe. if that is too rich turn your airline miles and credit card points and use them to get over there while the dollar is so strong. >> i will ask you renea about that. in terms of using the points what should people be aware of? >> points don't get better with
8:47 am
time like a fine wine so definitely use them. look at whatever program you are with. delta is having amazing value redeeming to get over to europe and enjoy the values. summer, specific areas, are there some areas that are cheaper than others -- >> -- >> southern europe heading into eastern europe is better deals like spain, headed to instanbul, all of those and many others the local currency is going farther. >> what about where you are flying from? does that make a difference in terms of the rates you can get? >> it does. there is a lot of competition coming from carriers like norwegian air. you are seeing the deals from 6-700 which is amazing when it
8:48 am
is normally a thousand plus. and the same thing from new york there is value there as well. >> i was looking at the airlines suggesting you may take and get the lower fares and some i never heard of it one being a wow air? summer what do you know about that? >> they are new to the united states. so i think they just started operating flights from the united states recently and started advertising $99 flights to europe and they will be higher in the summer and everything cost extra pretty much with wow air but you can get good deals on this airline $600 or less. just be ready to pay for every little extra. scombl >> you have to have a place to stay once you are there. how do you get a good deal? >> different points can be used
8:49 am
like using points or prices are coming down because of the dollar being stronger you are getting a cheaper price than you would have a year or two before. >> is that important to bear in mind when you chose where you want to travel in europe? >> oh definitely. for example, if you want to go somewhere using the pound you will not be getting the same deal as you will with the euro. but totally right the average price of a hotel in europe is less than the average price in the united states. >> you know i like to use those rental by owner like vrbo is the website. is that a good idea for families? >> yes it can be. in europe you will hit occupancy limits with hotels like two people in the room. looking to air bnb or vrbo is going to be more economical.
8:50 am
