7:08 am
worker. >> reporter: but some of trump's critics want more details before they celebrate the incoming president. >> yeah, jobs are good. the question is what exactly is the deal? i mean the first thing you learn when you're talking about deals is let's read all the details. >> reporter: trump also working on filling his cabinet. now a familiar face is under consideration for secretary of veterans affairs. >> thank you so much. >> reporter: a palin aide telling abc trump transition officials in recent days, i feel as though the megaphone i have been provided can be used in a productive and positive way to help those desperately in need. and as trump hosts that event at carrier to show he's fighting for the working class, "the washington post" points out this morning that trump is assembling what could be the wealthiest cabinet in the history of this country. trump campaigned against wall street and he also said he was going to drain the swamp yet

billionaire, millionaires and some washington insiders. >> we will take a look at that. tom, we'll take a look at it now with matthew dowd and carrier, big political win for donald trump and his team is signaling steve mnuchin, his incoming treasury secretary nominee has said that we're going to see more of this. more direct intervention with companies, now, this is opportunity but limits. >> it's real, those thousand families or thousand individuals right before christmas now know they have job jobs that will stay in indiana so i'm sure their children and families are very happy, but, two, symbolism. he's just president-elect but presidents rely a lot on symbolism and the symbolism of this, i didn't forget you in the midwest. i didn't forget you. other people have forgotten you. i'm willing to go through whatever it takes. a broad question what is his economic policy. you can't do one-offs without defining it and in the end donald trump will be defined by 4.9%, the unemployment rate that it is today that is going into
7:10 am
>> meanwhile, as tom mentioned, two billionaires being nominated. steve mnuchin several hundred million and they'll push hard for tax returns from all these nominees as they come up for confirmation. >> you know, before the election was over before election night i described the trump group as a pirate ship. well, some of these nominees it looks like it's a pirate yacht that we've seen unfold in this. i think the confirmation hearings will be some of the most spectacular theater that we have sn questions from the attorney general, from the treasury, from all of those questions that are in such contrast to many things donald trump said during the campaign. >> sarah palin. >> sarah palin, i guess is the elizabeth swan, the keira knightley character in "pirates of the caribbean." she will come in. interesting how folks discipline in this but i think the interesting thing on january 20th he turns the black pearl over to the queen elizabeth ii and it's much more difficult to manage the queen elizabeth ii.
7:11 am
very much. >> do you stay up at night trying to come up with these. >> it just comes to me. it just comes to me. >> all right. thank you, matt. but now to charlotte, north carolina, where protests erupted overnight after prosecutors said they would not charge the officer who fatally shot keith lamont scott in september. abc's eva pilgrim has the latest. >> reporter: overnight people taking to the streets. four arrested protesting over a fatal police shooting. thisor police officer who fired the fatal shots killing a charlotte man. >> i am fully satisfied and entirely convinced that officer brentley vinson use of deadly force was lawful. >> reporter: into keith lamont scott's death while evidence points to the 42-year-old being armed. something scott's family had disputed. his wife saying as much on the tape from the shooting. >> drop the gun. >> he doesn't have a gun. >> reporter: the d.a. also
7:12 am
see a gun prior to approaching scott radioing in before the shooting. >> there was a guy that was parked next to us that was rolling a joint had a gun. >> reporter: as well as releasing this from a 7-eleven showing mr. scott with a bulge around his right ankle and previously released police video you can see his pant leg pulled up. empty holster revealed. the d.a. concluding he failed to comply with commands to drop his gun. justifying the scott's family disagreeing asking why a father waiting to pick up his kid ended up dead. >> but that does not mean that this officer's killing of keith scott was right. all that means is that under the view of the d.a.'s office it wasn't criminal. >> reporter: and the d.a. saying that police found a gun at the scene that they have since identified as scott's. his family saying in none of that video do you clearly see
7:13 am
d.a.'s decisions. they are considering pursuing a civil case. robin. >> we'll see what happens, eva, thank you. to the new clues about that deadly plane crash that killed 71 people. david kerley has more on what the survivors are now revealing about the accident. >> reporter: this morning, colombian authorities confirm this jet did not have enough reserve fuel and radio calls suggest it ran out of fuel. as this new video shows the excited brazilian soccer team heading to the finals fo crash. their short haul jet had flown nearly 1900 miles right at its maximum rank but put into a holding pattern above medellin. the pilots radio the tower asking for priority landing. we are having a fuel problem. seven minutes later the pilot calls out, total failure. electric, total and fuel. >> they now have nothing but battery power and they're gliding. they have no electronic aids that can take them to the
7:14 am
calling out for directions. vectors. a minute later the final plea for help. eight miles from the airport the jet crashes, no fire, no fuel found. >> the airplane ran out of gas. why it ran out of gas, why the crew made the bad decisions that they made, could they have saved it if they declared an emergency early on? >> reporter: three players survived. two crew members, one did by curling up in the feet am position and a south american sports network others in the plane stood up and started yelling after the jet ran out of fuel. the black boxes have now been turned over to investigators from the united kingdom. that's going to tell us a lot about what the pilots were saying inside the cockpit an answer a lot of the questions about this tragic plane crash. >> david, just to hear that audio like that, david, thank you. amy has the morning's other top stories starting with another police officer killed in the line of duty. >> that's right. an officer was shot and killed
7:15 am
tacoma, washington. the neighborhood was placed on lockdown as a standoff with the shooter continued into the early morning and then a somber scene as the officer's body was taken away. 133 law enforcement officers in the united states have died in the line of duty this year alone. that is more than during all of last year. well, the fourth and final inmate who escaped from a california jail has been captured. rogelio chavez was arrested at his sister's home in san jose after an eight-hour standoff. police say he ha the attic. and major league baseball owners and players have agreed to a new labor deal avoiding a lockout. both sides reportedly agreed to ban first year players from using smokeless tobacco and the all-star game will no longer determine home field advantage in the world series. instead, the team with the best record will get the advantage. and finally, wow, the shape of your chicken mcnuggets are not as random as you thought. mcdonald's has revealed its
7:16 am
shapes which has apparently shocked even the most loyal mcdonald's fans. each shape even has a name, the bell, the ball, the boot and the bone. and mcdonald's says this -- these shapes are the perfect equilibrium of dipability and fun. >> dipability. >> trying to get that in. dipability. >> yeah. >> they made it one. >> i like the boot because you got a little something to hang on to. >> right. >> we both said dipability and both thinking of same page, robin. thank you, amy. take a look at this video and, yes, that's a man reaching into a truck and walking away with a massive pot of gold and he is not a leprechaun just from times square and linsey davis has the story. >> reporter: a reward leading for information of the recovery of this stolen pot of gold. you heard it right.
7:17 am
$1.5 million. police are calling the investigation operation lucky charms. it was not a sophisticated heist like "the italian job." >> 13 across. 4 high. >> reporter: rather police think the robber just stumbled on to an opening and pounced. >> do you think he knew it was a buck of gold at the time. >> i believe he believed it was a value. it was in an armored truck with armed guards. >> reporter: it happened in new york city's diamond district. the barrel was taken right out of the back of an armed vehicle at the precise moment when one of the armed guards turned his back. the guard reportedly only noticed the buck was missing because that's the bucket he used to rest his feet while he sat. loomis, the armored truck company told abc news their guards were trthed by professional thieves. the container of gold flakes nearly 90 pounds, so heavy the thief had to keep putting it down which might explain why it took him an hour to walk half a mile. he then got into a white car.

i thought about her being there screaming my name. >> that is the husband of sherri papini, that missing mom in california missing for three weeks, abducted came back in terrifying condition, and he gave abc news that exclusive interview about the ordeal his wife went through. that is all coming up. president-elect trump is heading to indiana today with mike pence. kicking off what they're calling a thank you tour after the election. they'll stop at the carrier plant where trump is celebrating a deal saving more than a thousand jobs. a major recovery effort is under way after those devastating tornadoes in the southeast. 48 reported twisters just this week. one flattening a small alabama town. the storm system thankfully is now moving out. and also this morning, dr.
7:31 am
it's all about olive oil and we're going to tell you what he said that now has him in some hot water. that's all coming up in just a bit. >> we look forward to that. but fist, our exclusive interview with that husband of that kidnapped california mom. abc's matt gutman sat down with keith papini in redding, california. good morning, matt. >> reporter: hey, good morning, george. i spent about four hours with keith papini and the excruciating detail he describes about what his wife went through wasn't just revealing. it was disturbing anything we have heard so far. this morning, keith papini, opening up about his 22-day captivity. >> i thought about her being there screaming my name. >> reporter: and describing to "20/20" his wife sherri's helter-skelter release. >> she was bound, she had a metal -- sorry, a chain around her waist. that is correct. she had a bag over her head. her left hand was in the vehicle chained to something.
7:32 am
out of the car? >> she was chained any time she was in a vehicle. they opened the door. she doesn't know because she had something to free her restraint that was holding her into the vehicle and then kind of pushed her out of the vehicle, and she has, at this point, has no idea where she is at, and then ran to the freeway. >> reporter: but motorists kept whizzing past her. >> she screamed so much she was coughing up blood from the screaming trying to get somebody to, you know, stop, and again, just another sign of how my wife is. she's so wonderful that she said, well, maybe people aren't stopping because i have a chain, and it looks like i broke out of prison, so she tried to tuck in her chain under her clothes. >> reporter: this morning the shasta county sheriff's office revealing new details about sherri's alleged abductors. described as two armed hispanic women. the sheriff says suspect number
7:33 am
accent and pierced ears. >> suspect number two was the older of the two suspects. she had straight black hair with some graying color. >> reporter: but the big question still remains. where was she held, what was the motive and was she specifically targeted, or was this a random act? >> you cut their hair. you beat them. you're really talking about beha extremist group would use to break somebody down. >> reporter: now investigators tell us they are starting to work on a composite sketch of those suspects, but sherri says she only saw their eyes. she was hooded most of the time. so investigators say they're working on digging out the other details, did she hear a train? was she close enough to feel the vibrations? what did the room feel like? anything to get a break in this story, george. >> such a strange story.
7:34 am
it right now. so these details are piling up. chilling details about her captivity. more on the captors, as well but so many big questions still remain. >> oh, there's no question that all these questions remain, but that's what the investigation now needs to focus on which is who are these people? why did they do it? and i think that's the most important question. you heard matt refer to it. which is what was the motive here? was she targeted? is it random? if they can figure that out -- >> doesn't seem like they're any closer. >> we don't know, right. the investigators will try to keep certain details close to the vest on this. but those are the key questions that they need to assess. >> you mentioned keeping the details close to the vest. the sheriff did seem a little bit concerned that the husband's interviews may somehow compromise the integrity of the investigation. >> well, he actually said that, right? and you can understand from the investigator's perspective their saying, look. we don't want the public at large to know everything. you know why? because in a lot of these high-profile investigations, they get tons of tips, they get
7:35 am
and they want to be able to assess who has real information here. who actually knows something? who may be real suspects? and the way a do that is certain information private and secret. now, from his perspective from the husband's perspective you can understand why he wants to go public, right? i mean a lot of people are still saying, come on. this must be some so saying -- >> that's right. no evidence to suggest it's a hoax but you look under this case on google, for example, the number one search term is reeled to a hoax. so you can understand why the husband wants to come forward and say, not only was this not a hoax, but this was absolutely horrific for her and please understand how difficult this must be for her. >> you also see times the sheriff has the claims that the husband is relating, but he doesn't
7:36 am
and there's small -- it seems so far the contradicts have been relatively small because most of the details have been accurate, it seems. that's why the sheriff is not happy about it. right? meaning if you're getting all sorts of details that aren't accurate it doesn't really matter. the problem for the sheriff is when you're getting all this information which, of course, the husband would know, these accurate details, then the sheriff has a little bit less to work with in terms of information that the public doesn't know. but i've got -- i sympathize with the husband in wanting to get it out there even if the answer is, yes, it makes the investigation a little when you have people around the world saying, oh, this doesn't make any sense. i don't get it. and the husband's position is, my wife was branded. my wife was in chains, you can understand why he wants to get out there and say something about it. >> no question about it. dan abrams, thanks very much. and you can see more of that exclusive interview with keith papini on a special edition of "20/20" tomorrow at 10:00 eastern right here on abc. hey, michael. all right, george. coming up on our big board, are we about to see the return of
7:37 am
sa sarah palin? more on the big role she may play in trump's white house. plus, a new show about a pope that has a lot of people up in arms. does it go too far? we'll talk about that plus stephen a. smith is here talking about tiger woods coming back to play golf. that's coming back in two minutes, everybody. you didn't really have to... getting the gift you almost kept for yourself? now that's a holiday mini miracle. with 30 percent off photo purchases, just around the corner.
7:38 am
hi, i'm paul. i used to be with verizon, but i switched to sprint. me too! and me. when will you? can you hear that? (vo) don't let a 1% difference cost you twice as much. happy holidays to you and your family. for people with hearing loss,
7:39 am
welcome back. time now for our big board and we're breaking down more of this morning's top stories. stephen a. smith is here at the table. as my grandma would say, hmm, hmm, hmm. >> i feel the same way. >> we can't wait to get to story. but first, could sarah palin be headed to washington? the former vice presidential nominee and trump loyalist is reportedly being considered for secretary of veterans affairs. abc's cokie roberts joins us now to weigh in. what are you hearing about this, cok cokie? >> well, what we're hear something what abc news has been reporting and sarah palin has been taking our story and posting it on social media saying veterans affairs. i have to say, robin, that fair
7:40 am
a laughing stock, and donald trump was so adamant throughout the campaign about the great care that he was going to show to veterans, that putting her in that position could be a problem for him. >> well, cokie, also if he does appoint her do you think she's going to have trouble with congress? >> sure, she is. i mean, absolutely. she's -- you know, she's a very controversial figure. now, she was for trump very early in the campaign, so he probably does feel he owes her something. but this is more than he probably wants to take on and think of poor john mccain. someone who cares desperately about veterans, who picked sarah palin as his running mate and has been very careful not a criticize her, but then have to vote on her. that's a tough one. >> that would be a tough situation. controversy and we have another one too. >> yeah, we have another controversy. this one involving a new tv show, hbo's new show "the young
7:41 am
sparking outrage over jude law's portrayal of a not so conventional vatican leader. take a look. >> your holiness, your sins. >> i don't have any sins to confess. i'm a contradiction. >> i think i can see why a lot of people -- larry hackett is joining us. this pope is portrayed as a borderline anti-christ reality but compares himself to god. so what is the bit ere -- bitter reaction to this show? i have an idea what you're going to say. >> he smokes and drinks cherry coke so you can imagine, you know, the wrath that will fall on him. it debuted in italy to critical raves and for viewership, and as a former altar boy, and choir boy i can assure you that, you know, as surely as the eucharist follows the homily there will be people who find this completely offensive and one more attack on the catholic church. as you saw in that clip, the
7:42 am
that make it a fantastic vehicle for drama. er it has power, it has mystery, and it has unbelievab pageantry and outfits. this lends itself to people recreating it and thinking preposterous things about it. we checked with the pope, the office -- the pope's office says he doesn't even watch television so they're not losing a lot of sleep about this but it's driving the controversy that people are going want to see it. >> well, we're talking about it. >> absolutely. >> we have to, you know, again, say this is not based on any particular pope, obviously. >> no, he's an american pope in this, right. >> all right. and cokie, you have covered m popes, and of course, your mother, the u.s. ambassador, so i saw you watching the clip as larry was talking. what do you think? >> actually i was thinking as he was talking, pope benedict drank orangeade so it's not that crazy. we watched this just now in the makeup room. lots of clips of it, and what i have to say, is it's awful. it's really just tedious and boring and, you know, all of
7:43 am
it gets lost in these long, long speeches, and really don't -- it's not worth getting exorcised over because it's just so bad. >> i think it'll be the "game of throne" of st. peter when it comes out. >> stephen, would you watch it. >> i'm going to at least watch it once. first of all, jude law is a great actor. no question about that and, secondly, controversy sells. i'm going to see what everybody is in an uproar about before i decide whether or not i'm going to watch it. >> leave it to stephen love that. now what could be the comeback for tiger woods? that's what you are here to talk to us about. he hasn't played professionally in 15 months. >> right. >> he is back now. a lot of people are talking about it. he looks good. >> he always looks good in recent years until he has to swing that golf club, and then obviously he doesn't look so good when you're ranked 257th in the world at the time. it's been a bad time. hasn't won a major since 2008 and when you think about tiger
7:44 am
majors. he has won since then, but not in a major. it's all about whether or not he will catch jack nicklaus '18 majors. that's it. that's all anybody cares about. >> he's got 14. you don't think so. >> i don't think so. i think because of everything that he endured psychologically he was warped. when you come across as if you have been living a lie skpurks get exposed for that, it's a lot to overcome. i think physically, and in terms of his with anybody in the world when he's at the top of his game. but his edge was also psychological. he intimidated opponents and intimidates nobody now. you have guys feeling sorry for him and hoping he resurrects himself because when he's successful you get paid. >> i was intimidated watching him on tv. i felt bad for the guys he was going against. i didn't realize it was 2008, it's been that long. we've seen great comebacks. all of us have seen them is
7:45 am
>> i want everybody to answer this question. question for everybody. do you think tiger woods can be successful in his comeback? maybe not this weekend but at some point? >> no, i don't see it. i really -- i've seen nothing in his game that tells me he can come back to the level that we were accustomed to seeing. >> if i can follow up on his psychological point, when you have athletes shooting for something, nicklaus' trophy you need the crowd and audience behind you. i don't think there's a reservoir of good will for tiger. he is going to be doing this alone. i don't think the public cares about him and has a factor in how he performs. >> come on, cokie. >> i don't know whether he can come back or not, but i'm thrilled to have him back because he's so cute. and it's really fun to look at him. >> oh. cokie! >> we're all rooting for him. >> i'm rooting for him. i think there's -- i always hold out hope when people say you can't do something, and he'll prove them wrong, and larry's point, you need the fans behind you, but i've never -- i love to

8:14 am
statistics show that 70% of women who experience workplace sexual harassment never report it. why? the fear of job retaliation. >> i think it always feels like an uncomfortable choice and i have to really think about my values and what's important to me and weigh them against my career. >> i often feel like in the grand scheme of things, i'm just not that important to this company. in that moment i feel like there's an erasure of yourself. >> reporter: and yet all the women facing the problem in their own way. >> i just like left, never returned bac i didn't even try to get a paycheck. >> i work in engineering with a bunch of guys, and i'm very up front with them, and i tell them, look, you're allowed to make comment, i understand, but the minute you start coming off me we'll have issues. >> reporter: jenny yang leads the federal commission tasked with investigating those claims and says gender-based putdowns can also be a form of sexual harassment because it's harassment based on one's gender. >> sexual harassment is very
8:15 am
harassment does not always involve propositioning. it can involve demeaning comments, crude language that makes women feel like they're in a hostile work environment. >> how many of you have been referred to, show of hands, as a girl, a doll, a babe or honey at work? >> sweetheart belongs on that list, as well. vp >> how many of you have heard you're too emotional? >> you're being too emotional. now don't get so emotional. that's the now word for sexism and they put you down but if you say anything you're emotional because you're a woman. >> reporter: and when we asked what can be done to stop this behavior. >> it starts in the home and it starts with the parents and it starts with our discussion with our young men and saying this is not okay. >> reporter: and from the family room to the boardroom. >> it starts from the top. it requires your leadership to message clearly that harassment is not tolerated. >> reporter: and a message from our forum of women in the workplace that part of the
8:16 am
>> i'm raising my voice because i want to be an agent of change. >> to encourage other young women -- >> that they too can take a stand. >> to break out of silence. >> i'm speaking out against sexual harassment because it exists. >> because it even exists. >> because it exists, and it shouldn't. >> and it shouldn't, and as you saw there, when we asked how many women filed a complaint with the hr after experiencing or witnessing harassment, just two of them did, which is typical in these situations. statistics tell us as many as 70% of women do not report it and what happened next is very telling. i asked how many of you felt your report was met with something positive? every one of those women put their hands down. i was also struck, george, and we were talking about this, by this idea that it starts in the home. leslie, one of the women on the panel, raised this idea that you have to teach your children, relatives, siblings, we have to be doing a better job of drawing the line in the home and
