1:04 am
greeted him. it was a sign of respect throughout the day and a sign of the leverage he has after winning 22 states. he said he has one focus going after this. that is donald trump. >> the american people will not vote for or tolerate a candidate who insults mexicans and latinos and insults muslims, who insults african-americans and women. needless to say, i am going to do everything in my power and i will work as hard as i can to make sure donald trump does not become president of the united states. >> reporter: bernie sanders says he will stay in the race until next tuesday when the district of columbia have their say. he will then get out of the race and campaign aggressively for hillary clinton. we don't know when they will have the first meeting. he may join president obama when he is out campaigning with hillary clinton.

1:06 am
by suggesting because of his heritage he is incapable of being fair. in addition to this, it is racist. in addition to this. >> trump is criticizing judge curiel for following the law instead of bending it to suit the financial interests of one wealthy and oh, so, fragile defendant. now trump also whined that he is being treated unfairly because the judge happens to be, we believe, mexican. now like all federal judges, judge curiel is bound by the federal code of judicial ethics not to respond to the attacks. trump is picking on someone who is ethically bound not to defendadefend himself. exactly what you expect from a thin skinned racist bully.
1:07 am
>> as we watch democrats move to unite, donald trump has a tough job trying to get republicans to line up behind him. paul ryan repeating his message that republicans who support a conservative agenda must back the presumptive nominee even if they don't agree with everything he says. >> we have a far better chance of putting this ideas in place with a trump presidency than clinton presidency. >> do you worry that putting these in place is more important than how the president acts over the next four years? >> it is a legitimate question. that's why i condemned his comments as clearly as i can. i have spoken to him about it. i spoken to him about other things he said in the past. this has to change. he has to fix this. >> today, trump will work to rally the republican base headlines the faith and freedom

1:16 am
to come back. that says resilience. that's what these boxing gloves represent to me. >> so today at 1:30 p.m., we are going to have continuous coverage of the event of the greatest. remembering muhammad ali. on thursday, thousands attended a muslim prayer service where ali was remembered as the people's champ. outrage growing over the sentence of a former stanford student athlete. the sentence he received for raping a woman intoxicated and unconscious. he was convicted of three felonies and will serve six months. many have signed petitions to call for the judge aaron persky to be removed from the bench. vice president joe biden with an open letter on buzzfeed. saying he is awed by the victim's courage for speaking

1:18 am
the victim, it sounds that it is not really like giving her justice in that sense. it is sad. >> i think justice is not served on this issue. this is bringing that to the limelight. >> reporter: this is felt so widely on campus that graduating seniors are planning a demonstration during this weekend's commencement. we are learning a bit more about brock turner's past. in his letter to the judge, he said he was a bit naive. grew up in a small town in ohio who had no experience when it came to drugs and alcohol. apparently prosecutors say that is an outright lie. on his cell phone, they uncovered text messages and photos that reveal he did in fact use alcohol and drugs. even in high school. some of the drugs included concentrated marijuana and lsd. >> so interesting. this is one of the legal stories that did not end at sentencing. it began a national conversation
1:19 am
of sexual assault and fairness in sentencing. the voice of the victim. that letter she wrote. her victim impact statement. many legal experts saying the most profound piece of writing in 20 years of victim advocacad. >> the trick is if that statement and outrage will move change. we will see. dylann roof, the suspect charged with fatally charged with shooting nine people in charleston, south carolina last year, wants a judge, not a jury to decide his fate. attorneys for the 22-year-old roof say he is willing to waive his right to a jury trial, but it appears prosecutors won't consent. roof's trial is scheduled to begin in november. the government will seek the death penalty. day two of testimony at the latest freddie gray trial. baltimore police officer caesar goodson faces second-degree murder. gray suffered a fatal final injury in the back of goodson's

1:57 am
factors for the iraqi government when it came to launches this current offensive against isis in fallujah to drive isis out of fallujah. because the bombs are made in fallujah or the decision to send the bombers to baghdad come from isis leaders in fallujah. these bombings thursday are just another reason why iraqi forces and iraqi government have decided to push this offensive and crush isis and fallujah is only about 40 miles from baghdad. they want to get this job done as quickly as possible to prevent further bombings like yesterday. >> of course, the goal is to get into fallujah and hang on to fallujah as well. ben wedeman live from baghdad. thanks. it is almost the top of the hour. it is friday. let's check on your money. we have dow futures pointing lower. investors instead are pouring into the safety of u.s. treasury bonds as they rush into the bond
