7:01 am
why they only asked for a dollar each from the city. and the program they hope will make a change. the interview only on "gma" this morning. ♪ i've got -- and making it rain. hundreds of thousands of dollars flying on to this highway when an armored truck burst open. >> look at all this money. >> now what police are promising if you took that cash. and we do say good morning, america. this is like an episode of "what would you do?" if you came across this scene right here, hundreds of thousands of dollars on the highway, what would you do? >> i know what a lot of people did, possibly, but as they say if it's too good to be true it usually is without a doubt. >> more on that coming up. some big breaking news overnight, president trump is furiously tweeting about that
7:02 am
bombshell from his lawyer rudy giuliani. >> he is one of the president's attorneys in the russia investigation. and trump did repay, this is what giuliani is saying, did repay his personal attorney michael cohen for the $130,000 used to pay off stormy daniels. our chief national affairs correspondent, tom llamas, has the latest developments. good morning, tom. >> reporter: good morning to you. it was a stunning interview last night and now new evidence that president trump did not tell the full truth about the money paid in a hush agreement to porn star stormy daniels. overnight, the president's attorney, rudy giuliani revealing in a live tv interview the president repaid his personal attorney michael cohen for facilitating that $130,000 payment to stormy daniels to silence her about an alleged sexual encounter she had with mr. trump back in 2006. an apparent contradiction to the president's past claims. >> i'm giving you a fact now you don't know, it's not campaign money. no campaign finance violation.
7:03 am
so -- >> they funneled it through a law firm. >> funneled through a law firm and the president repaid it. >> reporter: just last month, president trump told reporters aboard air force one he didn't know about the payment made by his personal attorney michael cohen. >> did you know about the $130,000 payment to stormy daniels? >> no, no. >> then why did -- >> reporter: in a previous statement to abc news, cohen said he facilitated the payment using a home equity line of credit that neither the trump organization nor the trump campaign were ever involved. but according to giuliani, who was also part of the campaign, the payoff was well known. >> everybody was nervous about this from the very beginning. i wasn't. i knew how much money donald trump put into that campaign. i said $130,000? going to do a couple of checks for $130,000. when i heard cohen's retainer of 35,000, when he was doing no
7:04 am
work for the president, i said that's how he's repaying -- how he's repaying it, with a little profit and a little margin for paying taxes from michael. >> well, guess what. that's fraud, that's illegal. >> reporter: stormy daniels' attorney seizing on the bombshell interview. >> i don't care where you line up, you should be disgusted by what has happened in connection with the lies that you have been told over the last three months about this payment. >> reporter: the justice department and the federal election commission already looking into how the payment was handled. but giuliani adamant no major crimes were committed. and as we mentioned at the top of the broadcast, the president just tweeted about this moments ago. want to put up those tweets now. he explains how he paid michael cohen, that it nothing to do with the campaign, and he also makes a major announcement and says he will enforce that nondiclosure agreement with stormy daniels and he also says he is going to seek damages because he believes she has broken that confidentiality agreement. >> you got three tweets from the
7:05 am
president saying he knew nothing about this. in the meantimher major contrad from rudy giuliani last night, contradicting the president's rationale on the firing of james comey. >> there was so much news in that interview. there was another major headline doing with james comey. in that, rudy giuliani says one of the reasons why the president fired james comey was because comey would not say that president trump wasn't a target of the russia investigation. that's also another major contradiction from president trump. his previous statements were that he tweeted just last month, comey was not fired because of the russia investigation. >> a lot to get to. thank you, tom. let's bring in jon karl for more on this as well. jon, rudy giuliani is the president's attorney. might had to have been some strategy there but a lot of the rest of the white house blindsided. >> reporter: absolutely blindsided. as a matter of fact, one of the white house spokesperson. was on television afterwards and air force based about it and said simply i'm not an attorney, i just work at the white house. the white house has kept an
7:06 am
arm's length arrangement from this not trusting the president's denials on this and, therefore, not repeating them. but, george, we do have some additional details about this arrangement with michael cohen and stormy daniels and the reimbursement. according to a source familiar, the payments from the president to michael cohen began shortly after the president took office last week. cohen had left the trump organization and gone into private practice. the payments we're told were primarily to reimburse for the stormy daniels payment but not only for that there were other legal matters that cohen was reimbursed for. unclear what those were. >> they started after he became president. yesterday, the president bringing in a new white house attorney to deal with the mueller investigation. >> reporter: that's right. emmet flood and ty cobb is out. i spoke to ty cobb right before his news about his announced departure. ty cobb was the person on the president's legal team that was preaching cooperation and even saying nice things about
7:07 am
rosenstein to me yesterday. that is now over. it is essentially war now between the president's legal team and the special counsel. >> okay, jon karl, thanks very much. robin. you bring up the investigation. this morning, we are getting a rare look inside the russia investigation. a witness who has just been interviewed by special counsel robert mueller's team, sitting down with our chief justice correspondent pierre thomas and he joins us this morning. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, robin. that's right, something truly rare. insight from a witness just interrogated by the special counsel's office. he said he was taken aback by the intensity of investigators and the fact that they're still focusing on russian collusion and he says they are nowhere near done. former trump political adviser michael caputo says he won't soon forget the grilling he says he took from two fbi agents and a prosecutor with the special counsel's team. >> three hours plus, they weren't pulling any punches. at some points in time it got
7:08 am
kind of frightening. >> reporter: caputo said the agents new so much about his life it scared him. >> they know more about what i did in 2016 than i do. they're talking about the timing of some things that happened at the campaign. i think they're completely focused on collusion with russia. >> reporter: according to caputo, there was a lot of focus on the hack of the dnc about a russian operative named gusafer. his stark assessment on whether mueller is anywhere near done investigating possible collusion. >> i'm hoping this ends soon. but it sounds to me like they have more digging to do. >> reporter: did they give you any sense that they have anything? >> i believe that they -- they think they're on to something. what that is, i don't know, but they're not messing around. >> reporter: caputo says the investigators peppered him with questions about his friend, the president's personal attorney, michael cohen, paul manafort indicted on money laundering charges and roger stone.
7:09 am
the one thing he says surprised him from the interview -- >> it was remarkable to me that the president wasn't brought up. nobody with the last name trump came up at all. >> reporter: caputo said he knew mueller's investigators would come from him because he's lived and worked in russia but he says he saw no collusion. he said all these investigations are destroying his family and he's really angry at congress. he said he told senate investigators in a hearing this week, quote, damn you to hell. george. >> okay, pierre, thanks very much. a lot to talk about with dan abrams and chris christie. federal prosecutor before serving as governor of new jersey and, chris, let me begin with you. rudy giuliani asked about the dossier. he responds talking about stormy daniels but this is strategy. >> of course, there is. there is an old saying hang a lantern on your problems. he knows there's been different stories told about this payment and how it was made -- >> not just different stories. the president said he knew
7:10 am
nothing about it. >> those are different stories. rudy has to clean it up. that's what lawyers are hired to do. he puts it out rather than having some reporter give breaking news that the president reimbursed it, so it's a typical -- it's a typical thing to do and it wasn't surprising at all. >> but it also shows you that they know mueller knows this. they know in particular after the raid of michael cohen that mueller knows exactly what happened with that payment. they also know that mueller knows why donald trump fired james comey. they talked to a lot of people who were there at the time and i think at this point they're saying let's get this out there so when it comes out later, just as chris says, where it's not going to be a surprise or news, let's just put as much out there as possible. >> meantime, the president and rudy giuliani both saying there's no campaign finance violations, not necessarily. >> yeah, but, george, i've always thought that was a weak case no matter which iteration of the story you were going on. bob mueller is look at much bigger things. when you look at the questions he put out it backs up what we
7:11 am
said, you can't let this guy be interviewed. you cannot let the president be interviewed. you look at the list of questions, and without follow-ups, that's 10, 12 hours of questioning there. you don't want to expose your client to that. >> the challenge of campaign finance violations is can you prove it was done for the purpose of influencing the campaign as opposed to protecting him from melania. right? finding out -- >> that's the big question. >> by the way, he's still denying he even had an affair so sort of shocking we're seeing in the tweets he's still denying the affair. yet, he's admitting he repaid michael cohen now for the amount through rudy giuliani. >> right. >> so to some degree the entire story makes even less sense. >> and the problem is that the motivation for it, whatever it was, is all subjective. you're not going to see a memo, an e-mail from donald trump saying, i'm worried this will hurt my campaign so pay her the money. okay, it's a subjective thing, and it's just as easy for people
7:12 am
to believe that he didn't want his wife to know if there was some affair. >> but one thing that's not subjective is donald trump did not report it on his financial disclosure, another vulnerability as well. >> if it's determined to be a loan. you don't know that's what it would be. >> what we're also seeing and jon karl brought it up, you got emmet flood in there, you've got rudy giuliani in there. going to your point, this is clear now that donald trump does not want to talk to robert mueller. >> and i think it goes beyond that. i think he wants to go after robert mueller, right? he wants a legal team who are going to be his spokespeople, not just who aren't going to necessarily cooperate but who are willing to attack and undermine robert mueller. because up to now that has not been the position of his attorneys. >> george, listen, i've been saying for months that he had a below grade legal team and that everything that was going on including waiving of certain privilege, not only on the president's behalf but on behalf
7:13 am
of people who worked in the white house was an awful strategic decision. and now what he's got in giuliani and in emmet flood are two very experienced warriors, flood having been through it with the clinton situation and rudy giuliani having been through enough wars himself to know how to fight them. >> a lot more to come. thank you both very much. michael. we're going to turn to that military plane crash in savannah, georgia, that killed nine people on board. a surveillance camera capturing the moment a puerto rican national guard plane went down on a busy highway. president trump tweeting his condolences saying, please join me in thoughts and prayers for the victim, their families and the great men and women of the national guard. the military is investigating the accident. also making headlines, another scare on a southwest jet. this time a window cracking midflight forcing the piles to make an unplanned landing. this incident comes just two weeks after that engine explosion that killed a mother
7:14 am
of two. abc's david kerley is at reagan airport with the details. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, michael. that incident two weeks ago on the mind of all those passengers on board that southwest aircraft. especially when they heard a loud noise yesterday. this crack in a jet window -- >> there was a loud pop. >> reporter: -- sent shivers through the southwest 737. >> all the seats around the window just kind of -- they ran away, and it was cracked through. >> reporter: it was less than an hour into the flight from chicago to newark when this window cracked. >> you're on the plane and you saw the pictures of what that window looked like. >> reporter: the pilots deciding to divert to cleveland to have that window checked but many on board immediately flashing back to that incident just two weeks ago when a window on another southwest jet broke partially sucking out a passenger who was pulled back in to the jet but did not survive. while this jet is 20 years old, this window had been replaced in the past and was inspected just last month. the jet did not depressurize, that's because the windows are layered.
7:15 am
two structural panes and the one you touch inside. this crack appeared to be on the outside layer. >> so the passenger sitting next to that window really wasn't in danger but i'm sure the loud bang and the thought of, oh, my, gosh, is that window going to let go was a scary situation. let go was a scary situation. >> reporter: it has been flying for 50 years, this we're told is only the 27th time that a window layer has cracked in flight. this is rare, passengers were not at risk but the closest to that other incident, which is still unsolved, reminds us all that nobody likes a mystery when it comes to flying, michael. >> yeah, you're right about that. thank you so much, david. robin. now to those severe storms tearing across the heart of the country. this morning, nearly 40 million are in the storm zone on alert for tornadoes, huge hail and damaging winds. our gio benitez is in raytown, missouri, with more. >> reporter: hey, robin, good

7:17 am
and back here in missouri, we just learned there's a new severe thunderstorm watch for southern oklahoma and northern texas. if you're there, just be very, very careful. no doubt a rough day ahead for you. michael. >> all right, thank you, gio. be careful, indeed. now to rob and that severe weather is stretching from texas to massachusetts today. >> yeah, really widening out. day four of our severe weather outbreak and this is one of six tornadoes that dropped in frederick, oklahoma. big winds across a wide stretch. 106-mile-an-hour winds here and in pratt county, nebraska, 92-mile-an-hour winds and six states reported winds over 70 miles an hour. we had damage in places like chicago, places like missouri, and there's where you see the storms this morning. we got a new thunderstorm watch out for the texas/oklahoma border. a number of storms have been posted there and flash flood watches earlier today from the storms rolling through chicago. a lot of heavy rain with this

and the president also suggesting there could be developments with north korea and tweeting that the past administration has long been asking for three hostages to be released from a north korean labor camp, stay tuned. breaking news just out. former ne news on charlie rose. sexual misconduct allegations against him were more widespread than previously thought and "the washington post" reported an additional 27 women say he sexually assaulted them and it was flagged to managers as early as 1987. rose responded saying your story is inaccurate. >> we're just learning this new information. we'll continue with new developments in a case that sparked outrage across the country. the two men arrested at a philadelphia starbucks have now reached a settlement with the company. they've also reached a settlement with the city of philadelphia. but first, their story. >> what did they get called for?

because there are two black guys sitting here meeting? what did they do? what did they do? >> reporter: this is the video that's gone viral. >> they didn't do anything. i saw the entire thing. >> reporter: now counting over 11 million views when two black men, rashon nelson and donte robinson were arrested inside a philadelphia starbucks store on april 12th. the incident sparking outrage and protests nationwide over racial profiling. [ chanting ] >> reporter: starbucks acting swiftly issuing an apology and ceo kevin johnson telling us on "gma" that the company plans to focus on increased training to avoid a situation like this in the future. >> i'd say there's training, more training that we're going to do with our store managerd, not only around the guidelines but training around unconscious bias. >> reporter: starbucks announced they would shut down their stores may 29th for an unconscious bias training day and said there was an agreement made with donte and rashon
7:33 am
including a confidential financial settlement among other and they reached a settlement with the city of philadelphia. they only asked for $1 so symbolic $1 each and the city promising though to invest in a program for young entrepreneurs with $200,000 in funding. earlier this morning, i spoke with donte robinson and rashon nelson along with their attorney stewart cohen. gentleman, thank you very much. it's good to see all of you once again. when you were last here, you both said you wanted to make a difference. are you pleased with how things are working out so far, donte? >> yes, we are. we're here to focus, you know, the foundation and the program to help young entrepreneurs, particularly high school students in the public school district in philadelphia. >> now w the starbucks settlement, i know the financial aspects of it cannot be disclosed.
7:34 am
anything else about your agreement with starbucks that you can share with us? >> well, the most important thing is the foundation, the fact that we have a seat at the table, you know, to work on, you know, reforms that be included in racial bias, you know, leaning forward and hopefully other companies take what's starbucks put an end to and they'll follow. >> because we know that later this month starbucks is going to close some of their stores for this training. will you be a part of that? what do you want to see happen with that? >> we want to come in and have our voices heard with general holder and, you know, hopefully other corporations will follow suit that starbucks is doing and also to answer your question another thing that we can speak on with starbucks is they gave us the opportunity to take courses to complete our bachelor degrees, so we appreciate the opportunity also. >> will you take them up on that opportunity? >> right now i can't say i will
7:35 am
right now but definitely when i feel as though it's needed i will. >> you appreciate the opportunity. >> definitely appreciate the opportunity. >> you were referring to former attorney general eric holder who is going to be a part of these meetings. so, what did we learn from this right now, mr. cohen? >> well, what i've learned from these young men is the importance of action. not words. they said they were going to take a very bad situation and turn it into something good and they did. and they did it through dialogue and cooperation, the ceo of starbucks is going to personally mentor these two young men going forward. after they met, he was so impressed and they were so impressed with one another that they're going to have a continuing relationship, so not only do they have a seat at the table, and not only do we have this settlement, but we have the beginning of a relationship.
7:36 am
wouldn't that be something good to see come out of bad things and messes. >> it's a teachable moment and you're making your mess a big message here. but we have seen since your video went viral there have been other posting across the country with similar kind of situations. what -- what can we do here? >> well, that's where this program and foundation came about. we feel as though it starts with us, our communities, our, you know, quote/unquote underserved communities and just teaching them. it's not just about entrepreneurship and proper etiquette but proper literacy and knowing about taxes and how to use money as a tool so it's much deeper than just starting a business. we give you these tools. we're working on this curriculum to provide these tools to these young students. >> and this $200,000 is only going to last a year. how will we fund this afterwards and make this program grow?
7:37 am
>> you know, the goal is to bring people together so that we can continue it on for generation after generation. not just something we want to do, you know, for a year with the grant that we are blessed with. this is something we want to bring together and get commitments so people can come together and raise money and continue this program, not just in philadelphia but in other cities worldwide. >> what do you want people to remember most about your story? >> looking at how we took a negative and turned it into a positive, that's really all we want. you know what i mean, not to focus on the negative, you know, but just to focus on a positive outcome. people out there with other solutions so we can keep moving forward like we truly want to. >> yeah. >> robin, i think they have an ask for you too. >> okay. >> if you would like to be a part of it in any way, form or fashion. >> i'd be honored. i would be honored. it is a necessary discussion. we know that you have limited the number of interviews that you have done and we -- i personally appreciate you coming here to "good morning america," our audience appreciates it very
7:38 am

one thing, so there's people overwhelmed with makeup advice. if there's one tip that people could learn, what is it? >> i would say to start with less and build up in layers for more coverage. i have perfected the pigmentation and coverage on this and you need less than you think. oftentimes cruelty free means sheer and not coverage but that's not true. >> wait till you see this deal. depending on the piece you choose $8 to $28, but mom, show us that discount. 50%. $4 to $14. you guys recognize this is one of your favorites, my audio pet, and these are teeny little creatures but adorable but they pack a big punch in sound and, michael, i know you like your morning music. >> you got me pegged. you know i love my morning music, tory. i understand this was developed by two husband and wife teams, they've been friends for 20
8:25 am
years so how did this happen? how did this get started? >> well, we decided we were going to do a company together and we wanted to do something that would bring a little more laughter and fun and joy into people's day and we were thinking, what would be the best way to do that and we think, you know, music is awfully powerful so wanted to do something with music and thinking about music, we thought if we could do a speaker that was fun and portable and that people could just take anywhere and have a portable party with, that would be ideal. how do we really make that different? what we were thinking, my pet shadow walked into the room and thought that's the perfect idea and my audio pet was born so you can take a pet and music with you wherever you go. >> shadow gets the credit. brand-new celebration. a variety even more than what you see on line. you're going to like this deal and i have got some students from greenville middle school to come and help us with the deal. normally, any of the speakers range from $30 to $50, but turn those critters. 50% off.
8:26 am
$15 to $25, and michael, i see you jamming in your dressing room next week with some critters from my audio pet. >> absolutely. you know i will be jamming in my dressing room. i won't be the only one jamming because everybody in our studio will go home with it too. tory's not done. she has more deals coming up from atlanta. and guess who is here in times square. we have tv legend carol burnett, the one and only.
