7:10 am
election. democrats may feel it is more politically advantageous to be up against a president heavily scrutinized by democrats on the hill rather than one who is at the center of ongoing impeachment proceedings. >> but as you say there are a lot of democrats who want her to be more forthright about it. >> reporter: we've already talked with many democrats who are downplaying the speaker's remarks and say, look, we are at the beginning of this process not at the end. while there is a widespread belief among democrats that any impeachment proceedings would need to have wide bipartisan support, they also want to see what the investigations here discover. they want to see what the special counsel robert mueller finds before they make any decisions on impeachment. >> overnight, another new investigation here in new york. >> reporter: this is a new line of inquiry related to the president's finances that stem directly from what michael cohen testified to here on the hill. he told lawmakers that the president inflated his assets to try to secure a loan to buy the buffalo bills. now, overnight, the new york attorney general subpoenaed

7:14 am
this morning, we even heard their battle cries. this fight is not over yet. u.s. jets and coalition artillery lit up the sky until the small hours. the final push against isis is under way. this is as close as anyone gets to the front line in baghouz. we can't have too much light to avoid being targeted ourselves. you can see artillery fire coming from all sides on that tiny town. this is hopefully finally the end of the so-called islamic state in syria. huge balls of fire rising into the sky. the crash of mortars honing in from all sides. 1500 jihadis remain inside, it is thought. coalition forces report dozens of isis fighters dead. despite at least four attempted suicide attacks. u.s.-backed troops are pushing forward into the town but it'sn. booby-trapped buildings, the hallmark of the isis retreat and a network of tunnels stretching for miles. no one knows who or what may be down there.
7:15 am
like i said, during this lull, we can see isis fighters freely walking around. it seems that they're able to to down into the tunnels during the bombardments and then come back up again. i think the tunnels will be a real obstacle for this coalition going forward, and even when this town is cleared, beating their ideology will be far harder to erase. paula. >> all right, james longman reporting from syria. james, thank you. cecilia? okay, paula, let's turn to the chaos on the court. fights erupting at multiple nba games overnight. one of those brawls ending in some players getting ejected. abc's diane macedo has all the details. >> reporter: suffice it to say, tempers were flaring in the nba last night. first, two players got ejected for getting into a fight with each other and then another ended up in an altercation with a fan. >> exchanging blows. >> reporter: it was an ugly wi bwlnb >> grabbed him by the throat. >> reporter: and an altercation with fans in utah.

7:17 am
>> i said sit down and ice your knees, bro. >>orr: it's his comments toward his girlfriend. >> she's five feet tall and 110 pounds, man. i mean, never said a word to him. her first nba game ever. welcome to the nba. >> reporter: well, that fan and a few others were issued warning cards. a remainder to all fans out there verbal abuse actually violates the nba's fan code of conduct. not allowed to do it. >> not a good look for the fans. not a good look for russell westbrook. >> and just not a nice thing to do. >> no, not at all. >> you don't even need a warning card. just don't do it. >> people say it's a part of the game. it shouldn't be. we want to take a look at this. a live look at the first live broadcast from deep below the ocean surface. how beautiful is this? these british scientists on a groundbreaking expedition beneath the indian ocean. one of the world's least explored areas so for seven weeks they're going to dive 200
