tv   New Day Sunday  CNN  July 3, 2016 3:00am-5:01am PDT

3:00 am
sources telling cnn that right now there's not enough evidence to charge hillary clinton with any crime. >> i think she should be in jail for what she did with her e-mails. ♪ good morning, everybody. >> the next few weeks are crucial for hillary clinton. >> as the political world is waiting for the fbi's next move on the e-mail investigation, the timing of that announcement could make or break the clinton campaign, some say. clinton was questioned by the fbi for three and a half hours yesterday. sources say there's not enough
3:01 am
evidence to file charges, but the interview comes as she's wrapping up her battle against bernie sanders and focusing on donald trump. >> she raised $68 million in june. if the fbi isn't finished by then, would the democrats nominate a candidate who's under investigation. could she lose momentum going into the general election? clinton says she's in the dark about what's coming and when. >> were you given that indication today that no charges will be filed? >> chuck, i am not going to comment on the process. i have no knowledge of any timeline. this is entirely up to the department. >> joining us now, donald
3:02 am
trump's surrogate and political editor at right alerts.com. good to have you back this sunday morning. >> good to be back. >> we heard from the former secretary there. but depending upon the timing, this could be crucial. we're learning that up to this point what we've heard from the justice department is they want to wrap this up before the republican convention. is that excellent timing, shutting down a line of attack potentially from the republicans? or is it terrible timing right before they try to make their case to the american people? >> it's legal timing, if you ask me. remember, under the doj regulations, the timing of this investigation cannot affect a local or federal political
3:03 am
election. here, this investigation is going to be wrapped up primarily because of that. because if you were to bring charges or not bring charges, that could impact the outcome of a presidential election, let alone the ability of the democrats to actually nominate whether it's the presumptive nominee or not. it's got to get wrapped up before then. from a political timing standpoint, of course the democrats and hillary want this over as fast as possible. everyone's who's looked at this, other than the republicans of course, have said there may have been mistakes made, but it certainly wasn't criminal. we will get a decision by the democratic convention at least. >> i want to bring in this tweet from donald trump. you heard there from scott that mistakes were made. and we heard from hillary clinton. she apologized several times for using this, but trump tweets it
3:04 am
is impossible for the fbi not to recommend criminal charges against hillary clinton. what she did was wrong, what bill did was stupid. there is still the space between those two, that yes, what hillary clinton did was wrong. she apologized for her decisions there, but it may not reach the level of an indictment. >> no. you're right. i'm not as optimistic as mr. donald trump in our judicial system. i don't have as much confidence in it. especially when you're talking about an attorney general that was appointed by president obama. i don't necessarily think we're going to see prosecution. once again, we've had this hamster wheel of problems with hillary clinton. it's been benghazi. it's been her past 20 years. there's always been some sort of little spark. somewhere there's got to be a
3:05 am
fire. it's amazing how she continues to escape any sort of justification, any sort of prosecution for any of these things that have happened over the last 20 years. >> these are nonissues. those parks a-- sparks are all being created by the republicans. >> when you say they're a non issue, they are issues for the voters. when we look at the latest quinnipiac poll, donald trump is considered to be more honest and trust worthy when compared to hillary clinton. while individually they may not matter, there is a narrative that's built that she is still fighting. >> after 20 years of those narratives, i'm not surprised at those polls at all. but the reality is there are no
3:06 am
criminal charges. these are allegations, allegations that may be mistakemistake mistakes. colin powell used his own private server. >> no, he did not. >> he had his own private e-mail account. >> own private e-mail account. but the reality is that the system at the state department, which is what the fbi is really looking at, was antiquated here. and unless this information classified when or subsequently was used with any criminal means of trying to take that information and put it somewhere like general petraeus and some of the others have been charged, you just don't have that here right now. >> you said they're looking into it. this is a criminal investigation by the fbi. hillary clinton may say this is a review, but this is a criminal investigation. i think we need to be clear about that. you say the republicans created
3:07 am
this. the republicans didn't put the private server in her home. while there may be other elements here, let's be clear about those elements. >> exactly. there were rules and they were broken. she was told time and time again even by the white house, by those saying when they realized that she did not have a dot gov e-mail address, they said we need you to eliminate your server and bring it back in and use the government server. that is the law. there is a huge difference between server and e-mail. i have a g-mail e-mail but i'm not using a separate server. there is a big difference on this. we do have 2,000 e-mails that have come out to be classified and 22 at least that are top secret. rules and laws were prbroken. will we actually see prosecution from an administration that is
3:08 am
over this? you're basically asking the teacher to police other corrupt teache teachers. >> will donald trump over play his hand? >> absolutely. we all can say there was some major wrongdoing done by the clintons when it comes to these e-mail servers. however, does that make hillary clinton worse of a candidate than donald trump? i don't think so. but this just feed the narrative that she is crooked hillary. >> no one in the history of the state department has ever been criminally charged for this. bangladesh has started two days of morning for the victims of a terror attack that killed 20 hostages and two police officers at that cafe in the
3:09 am
capital. >> and three american students are among those killed. two from emory university in georgia. shae she was a sophomore. she was visiting family and friend for summer vacation. the other student was headed into the university's business school in the fall. people who knew the students say these two were in the wrong place at the wrong time and most likely were not targets of the terrorists. >> they had the bright future. they just wanted to be highlighted that they are next to their embassy. >> the university of california berkeley talks about this student, the third one killed. she was a sophomore. had just started an internship at a bank in dhaka a few weeks ago. this massacre of course
3:10 am
happening during the holy month of ramadan. there's new video that's believed to show commandos moving in to end the terror attack. that siege did end overnight yesterday. the attackers took hostages. they got into a shoot out with police until soldiers moved in and killed them. 13 hostages were rescued. alex fieander field is with us . i understand you have some new details about this. >> i'm speaking to you from the family members of the 20 people who were killed inside the siege at that cafe. the family members have been doing the gut wrenching job of
3:11 am
being asked to identify the remains of their loved ones. these are people who investigators say were stabbed and gassed. isis has claimed responsibility for this attack. there's a website showing pictures of the militants who isis purports carried out these attacks. it also shows pictures of what they identify as the hostages. it certainly suggest that is the people who were carrying out this horrific attack were in communication of others on the outside. we've been at the crime scene this morning. it's still heavily guarded.
3:12 am
there's also been the arrival of a japanese government official, a number of italians. family members are arriving in dhaka now to identify these remains and collect those remains. an arizona teenagers is being held without bond for allegedly conspireing to terror attacks in phoenix. a spokesman for the arizona attorney general says there was no trehreat to the public. in baghdad the death toll from two car bombs has risen to 80. isis has taken credit for the first blast. the second bomb went off in an
3:13 am
outdoor market. no one has claimed responsibility thus far. still ahead, today we are hearing from residents in a florida beach town who are outraged. this is all about toxic algae polluting their beaches. newt gingrich has people wondering if he's undermining donald trump as he's being vetted. >> trump's job is to quit screwing up, get the election down to three or four big issues, all of which comes down to a single concept, enough. the heirloom tomato.

3:16 am
the number one definition of the vice president's job is the president. >> right. >> so who knows? some presidents give a lot of power to vice presidents. at least trump has said over and over he needs a vice president who understands washington, because he knows he doesn't. well, if he really means that, again, people often maneuver a lot. i suspect if it did come to anything, we'd have to have a very long talk and sit down with donald and have another long talk. >> it's vice presidential vetting season. that was newt gingrich weighing in on wild speculation that he could be donald trump's pick for vp. >> mike pence and trump spent time at a golf course in new
3:17 am
jersey. lots of business is done on golf courses. senators corey booker, labor secretary as well, all appearing on the networks today, all rumored to be on clinton's list. >> so let's talk about it now. thank you so much for being here. we appreciate it. i don't want to listen here to more of -- >> everything the clinton campaign is going to suppress trump will in the short run suppress trump because he's not trying. it has no meaning. >> so he's basically repeating trump's line that trump doesn't
3:18 am
understand washington, but then went further to say trump has to, quote, quit screwing up. does a comment like that undermine a candidate? >> one week he's absolutely in love with him. on the other week he's criticizing him. i was a huge fan of newt when he ran for president before. at the same time, i give newt credit. he's not compromising his own personality just to get a job. he's not pandering to the presidential candidate. he also went onto slam joe biden saying he feels like president biden obviously could have stepped up his role as vp. governor mike pence has entered the race. a lot of conservatives are very excited about him.
3:19 am
they want him to do kind of what sarah palin did to john mccain back in 2008. she solidified that conservative base. a lot of people are excited about people like governor mike pence. >> corey booker is another name floating around out there, scott. i want to give you a quick prespr preview of what we're going to hear from him. >> two weeks ago you said you were not being vetted to be hillary clinton's vice presidential running mate. >> at this point, i've answered this question, talked about this. i'm just referring questions to the woman who's going to have to make this decision. what i do know is that on the democratic side, there are many fabulous candidates. >> that is not a no, sir. >> that is exactly what it is.
3:20 am
it's telling you, if you have a question like that, please direct it to the clinton campaign. >> do you believe that booker has enough appeal to bring some of those sanders supporters that may have been hesitant to come to clinton's side? >> absolutely. he's a rising star in the democratic party. he's smart, he inspires the base. latino voters are going to be very important to the democrats. he speaks spanish. and quite frankly, energizing the base and not just getting support of latino and african-american voters but energizing them to come out in major droves on election day is going to be super important. he does that actually and i think he would be an ideal vice president candidate to support clinton, especially with young
3:21 am
people and young women as well. so he checks a lot of those boxes. him referring questions to the candidate that's not a no for sure. that's something that suggests he's being seriously vetted and reviewed by the clinton campaign. now the veep stakes are heating up. you just heard what corey booker was saying. there is more of what he said that you'll hear then. also trump's running mate, will he announce next week as we have heard it could happen? watch state of the union this morning at 9:00 eastern on cnn. we've talked at the people in florida upset about this toxic algae bloom hugging the coastline and keeping tourists away. we've now learn it may have

3:25 am
the fourth of july weekend and florida beaches normally are crowded with vacationers on this weekend. instead some are crowding with local residents who are furious with state and local officials for allowing a toxic algae bloom. a young manatee was found dead near the algae bloom, though it's not known why it's died. the town of stuart -- the mosquitos near the water at this hour are a terror. >> reporter: thank got for off. the mosquitos are bad. it smells so bad. it smells about five times worse. it makes your eyes burn. it feels like someone is sitting
3:26 am
on your chest. look at this. this is disgusting. it's crowding in the canals, in the rivers all over this part of the state. four counties under a state of emergency. residents are furious. nearly 5,000 people from this area came together on the beach yesterday and joined in arms spelling out the reference to buy the land. that's in reference to an amendment they passed to buy some land south of lake okeechobee to store this water with all the pollutants and the fertilizers from the sugar issues and the agriculture industries. the governor has not come down to tour the area. senator marco rubio did on thursday. and he said she was goihe was g his best to get some answers. i did have a representative from
3:27 am
the sugar industry call me late last night. he was saying even if the land is not going to be able to put a reservoir on it because of a lease for ten years and so it is getting mixed up in the big political realm. and the people and the wildlife here in florida are suffering for it. >> i want to ask you what we have not discussed this morning. people can see what it looks like. what they can't appreciate is the smell of this algae bloom. give us an idea of another sense of what's happening there. >> reporter: well, it's hard to put in words what it smells like. i did see someone on social media yesterday describe it as imagine sticking your head in a trash can of rotted meat and cat litter and multiply that times ten. porta potty smells like that,
3:28 am
smells like raw sewage, looks like raw sewage. any herbal thing you can think of, that's what -- horrible thing, that's what it smells like mixed together. florida depends on it tourism industry and fishing industry. >> beautiful part of the state. hopefully there's some resolutions soon there for the folks in the tourism industry. hillary clinton questioned for more than three hours by the fbi yesterday. and now the timing of what's coming next is going to be crucial for her campaign. plus, vice president joe biden giving newt gingrich a pretty hard time. tongue in cheek here. over speculation that he's on top of trump's vp list. >> i'd like to ask one question before i begin.

newt, are you going to do it? that's okay. that's all i want to know. and mortgage rates slightly dropped this week. here's your look. quicken loans has asked me to show you just how easy it is to secure financing for a dwelling like this. we need only answer a few quick and simple questions. name. address. income and employment history. now rocket mortgage will pull my credit at no cost and provide a custom solution based on my financial information. and all that's left is to push this button. ♪ [whisper] rocket. ♪ see star trek beyond in theatres. these are awesome! this is my dream car. yeah, i like this. i've been waiting to get in this. real people have a lot to say about the award-winning vehicles at the chevy 20% sales event. wow! the design is great.

3:32 am
it may feel like there's a lot of uncertainty for the clinton campaign at the moment. the political world is waiting for the fbi's next move on the e-mail investigation. she was questioned by the fbi for three and a half hours yesterday. the question now is will the democrats nominate is candidate who is still under investigation? and if the investigation does close with no charges but maybe a rebuke, could she lose some momentum there? >> hillary clinton came to fbi headquarters behind me to sit for a three and a half hour interview investigating the use of her private e-mail server.
3:33 am
out of respect for the investigative process, she will not comment further on her interview. what we do know is this is a routine part of the investigation. hillary clinton's aides have been brought in and have talked to the fbi. and this is part of what happens at the end of an investigation when the fbi brings in a subject for an interview. sources say right now there's not enough evidence to charge hillary clinton with any crimes. and barring any big game-changers in this interview today, they don't expect that there will be any charges brought against hillary clinton. and they may announce that in the next few weeks. that would be welcome news for hillary clinton and the democrats. republicans, though, continue to hit hillary clinton on this issue. in fact, donald trump tweeted this on saturday. he said, quote, it is impossible for the fbi not to recommend criminal charges against hillary clinton. what she did was wrong. what bill did was stupid.
3:34 am
donald trump there talking about bill clinton earlier this week meeting with loretta lynch on the tarmac of phoenix international airport. came under huge criticism for that. of course, as the attorney general, loretta lynch is overseeing this investigation. but certainly republicans are going to continue to hit hillary clinton on this no matter what the outcome of this fbi investigation is. let's dig deeper now into the investigation and the questioning. tom fuentes and former assistant director of the fbi. so clinton was questioned for roughly three and a half hours yesterday. our legal analyst says that is a relatively short period of time when compared to other meetings with the fbi for questioning. is there anything that you glean or can be gleaned from three and
3:35 am
a houf hoalf hours of questioni >> it's a complicated case. as we know, this has gone a very long time even with a great number of investigators and analysts aside. having said that, oftentimes the subject interview at the end of a case is when it comes. that's one reason why it could be short. it could be -- they already have all the evidence they need. it doesn't matter really what she says. they have physical and documentary evidence to substantiate the case. or they were asking her questions that may lead to additional interviews. we don't know that. but oftentimes a short interview with a main subject at the end of a case usually means the case has already been made and the evidence already obtained and they don't really need other
3:36 am
than if the subject can offer reasons or mitigation for the information the fbi already has. >> let me get to something that hillary clinton said to msnbc about the interview. >> it was something i had offered to do since last august. i've been eager to do it. and i was pleased to have the opportunity to assist the department in bringing its review to a conclusion. >> something i'd offered to do since last august. >> you're an expert in this process of course. does that correspond with what you know about the process, that clinton was, as she suggests here, ready to do this in august and she was poeshtentially wait for the fbi? >> no, i don't believe that's true. she may have been offering to do the interview last august when
3:37 am
the fbi didn't have all of the information. in the interim since last august, they even gave immunity to one of the people who set up her servers. the fact that that person needed immunity to even want to talk about it was a bad sign for hillary clinton. but they didn't have all of the facts, all of the documents reviewed yet, all the witness statements. when they were ready to talk to her in recent times, she hasn't been as quick to be interviewed. and i've heard discussions about the timing of that. but i must say in this particular case, you know, we're hearing these statements that people are saying there's no evidence, she's not going to be charged. i don't know where they're getting this. this is one of the most tightly held investigations ever. agents that work next door to the agents working on this case have no clue of what they found, what's going to happen, what the recommendations are going to be.
3:38 am
the report goes to the department of justice and other people start reviewing it outside the fbi, i think more will be known and that should happen pretty soon. >> important point there you make. one thing i want to pull in, the reporting from justice correspondent pamela brown. the justice department's aim was to wrap up the probe before the republican and democratic conventions later this month. you've characterized the bureau as famously apolitical. that doesn't sound apolitical if they're going to wrap this up before these major political events. >> no. when i say they're apolitical, i mean it doesn't matter whether there's a democratic administration or republican administration. when they work these cases, the facts are the facts and they'll present the facts. the timing of it, the bureau is
3:39 am
well aware of the political process and tries not to be used in that process. for example at the height of a campaign, one candidate will make an allegation through surrogates about the other candidate hoping the fbi will immediately open a case and then they can say my opponent is under investigation. the bureau is mindful of the political process in wanting to get this done to not interfere one way or the other with the election. whether they recommend charges or not has nothing to do with a democratic president being in office or the president's appointee loretta lynch. >> quickly, there's nothing that prevents them, legally or otherwise, from announcing an indictment, no indictment, a rebuke, a statement that says there's nothing to see here,
3:40 am
during, before or after these conventions correct? >> correct. that will come from the department of justice, the actual decision. >> thank you so much. >> you're welcome. a little bit lighter moment in politics now. vice president joe biden put newt gingrich on the spot yesterday as to whether gingrich would be trump's number two. take a look. >> i'd like to ask one question before i begin. newt, are you going to do it? that's okay. that's all i wanted to know. i want to get to the important things. >> and uh -- the question was should i -- >> should he be vice president? anyway it's a hell of a job.
3:41 am
>> we may know the answer soon. trump is expected to announce his vice presidential pick prior to the convention which is just a couple of weeks away. now we're hearing we could hear sooner. let's turn now to the terror in turkey. istanbul investigates the massacre that killed more than 40 people. and now we're learning the identifies of those suicide bombers. life insurance automobile insurance i spent 20 years active duty they still refer to me as "gunnery sergeant" when i call being a usaa member because of my service in the military to pass that on to my kids something that makes me happy my name is roger zapata and i'm a usaa member for life. usaa. we know what it means to serve. get an insurance quote and see why 92% of our members plan to stay for life. wannwith sodastream®er? you turn plain water into sparkling water

3:44 am
we're learning more this morning about the investigation into the attack on istanbul's airport. it's revealing details about the terrorists. two of the three attackers have been identified. and ivan watson is with us with the latest. what are you learning this morning? >> reporter: well, we haven't really gotten any updates on the suspected suicide bombers in some 48 hours from turkish authorities. aside from knowing that they seem to be citizens of russia, kurdistan and uzbekistan.
3:45 am
13 of the total of 27 suspects who have been detained since the airport attacks are now being arraigned in a courtroom here in istanbul. three of those suspects are foreigners. and legal procedures to decide whether or not they will be formally arrested if there's enough evidence to formally arrest them. in the meantime, the turkish military has been carrying out artillery attacks against suspected isis positions, claiming to kill 11 isis fighters and destroying several vehicles. just to dgive you a sense of ho complicated this part of the world is. the same day the turkish military carried out bombing flights to northern iraq against another militant group that turkey is fighting. this is the kurdistan workers
3:46 am
party or pkk. >> you mentioned a raid this morning where three more people were arrested. what more do you know about that raid? >> reporter: that's about it. turkish authorities are being very tight-lipped now. if you compare it to the awful nightclub attack, san bernardino, within five days of those attacks we have a much more complete picture of the people who have carried out those attacks. in this case, we know very little except for the apartment that the three suspected suicide bombers rented in a neighborhood just a couple miles from where i'm standing. we know they are believed to have come from syria, from isis controlled syria about a month ago and they're believed to have brought their explosives with them. authorities are giving their cards close to their chest
3:47 am
either because they don't want to tip them off, or they're trying to control the message now in a society where the media is somewhat censored by the turkish government. still to come, a powerful voice for human rights falls silent. world leaders pay tribute to remarkable legacy of holocaust survivor i lelie wiesel. toujeo® is a long-acting insulin from the makers of lantus®. it releases slowly, providing consistent insulin levels for a full 24 hours, proven full 24-hour blood sugar control, and significant a1c reduction. and along with toujeo®, i'm eating better and moving more. toujeo® is a long-acting, man-made insulin used to control high blood sugar in adults with diabetes. it contains 3 times as much insulin

today we're hearing a lot of kol do condolences for elie wiesel. he was one of the great moral voices of our time. and in many ways the conscience of the world. >> his work touched people across the globe. his legacy stands as a monument to human dignity, compassion and justice.
3:51 am
>> he would become the most famous survivor of the holocaust. but at the age of 15, elie wiesel had no fears when his family was rounded up in hundghy by the nazis. >> i knew something terrible. it was something terrifying was in store for us. >> arrival at auschwitz, the extermination camp. an older inmate advises him tell the germans you're 18 years old, a candidate for work. it saved his life. trapped in a nightmare he sustained himself by keeping his father alive. father and son were later taken to buchenwald camp.
3:52 am
>> the gates swing open for german concentration camps. >> this picture was taken after liberation. he's in the second level of the bump. he would later say he didn't recognize himself. he lamented, there was no grave of his father to visit when he toured buchenwald in 2009. >> what can i tell him, that the world has learned i am not so sure. >> he started asking questions after the war, becoming a journalist. it took years before he talked about the horrors he experienced in his book called "night." in 1985 as he received the congressional gold medal he implored president reagan unsuccessfully not to visit a german cemetery filled with members of the ss. he won the nobel peace prize.
3:53 am
he would later speak out against over atrocities. >> it's not a matter of war. it's a matter of intervention. i'll tell you this man is a disgrace. >> he was named a messenger of peace by the united nations. he would ask the u.n. security counsel -- >> why am i involved in tragic events that occur to people i have never met on the other side of oceans and continents? it is because i belong to a t m traumatized generation, haunted by the world's indifference. >> in 2008 he and his foundation learned they were among the victims of bernard madoff. he always said he was a writer
3:54 am
and a teacher. he said he never spoke for all the holocaust victims, but serves to remind nations not to let it happen again. >> as a teacher i always believe in questions. the question is will the world ever learn? thank you.

ward. he'll join us live for tonight's and the marlins. hines has been there all weekend and will show us how the base is honoring military families. good stuff. >> it's a big deal. >> i'm glad for him. good for him. >> it makes it exciting. because you go and you think we know how this is going to end. you were just at the french open. >> i'm halfway through my grand slam. but yeah that moment when there's a surprise, the unfortunate surprise for the french open was that serena didn't win. but you were so happy for -- and here's the thing, i don't remember who she was.
4:00 am
at this point, we will wrap this up. >> thank you for being with us. >> much more coming. next hour of new day starts right now. hillary clinton has met with the fbi. >> sources telling cnn there's not enough evidence to charge hillary clinton. >> i think she should be in jail for what she did with her e-mails. >> newt, are you going to do it? it's a hell of a job. >> none of you should bet on all this. it's wild speculation. >> two weeks ago you said you were not being vetted. >> the former u.s. ambassador to bangladesh believes that the targeting of foreigners was intentional. >> at least three of the victims were college students studying here in the u.s.
4:01 am
renowned holocaust survivors and noble peace laureate elie wiesel has died. good morning. >> hillary clinton could be facing really the most crucial stretch of her campaign thus far. and it has nothing to do with what her opponents are going. >> the timing of that announcement could make or break the clinton campaign. she was questioned by the fbi for three and half hours yesterday. sources tell cnn there's not enough evidence to file charges but this interview comes as clinton's wrapping up her battle against bernie sanders and is turning to take on trump. >> clinton raised $68 million in june and she's prepared to
4:02 am
accept soon the nomination at the democratic convention at the end of the month. if the investigation closes with no charges but a harsh rebuke of clinton, could she lose momen m momentum. >> were you given that indication today that no charges would be filed? >> chuck, i am not going to comment on the process. i have no knowledge of any timeline. this is entirely up to the department.
4:03 am
>> even if the charges are not filed here and the guidance that our justice correspondents have received is up to this point there has not been enough evidence to file charges. what will be the impact of a harsh rebuke going into the conventions? >> i think the first thing is that hillary clinton spent three and a half hours basically answering every single question that the investigators asked her yesterday. let's not forget this is also at a time where earlier last year she spent 11 hours responding to a politically motivated benghazi committee. her spokesperson says they welcome this investigation. we knew for a very long time that she was going to be a part of the questioning. as far as a rebuke, it's something that republicans get very very excited about but i think it's also going to rally
4:04 am
democrats around hillary clinton once all the evidence comes out. >> what's your response? >> i do think we have to wait and see what comes out of that. but 175 agents on this, there's something there. they wouldn't be spending the resources to do this if not. but we're just going to have to wait and see. i know that the american people are tired of the political class has a different set of rules than regular people. that's why you've seen this uprising this cycle. it's going to be interesting what happens. on friday or one day last week they sent a thing to the judge requesting for 27 extra months for e-mails for the clinton foundation. they originally said there were 6,000 e-mails. now there's 34,000. what's going to happen with that? they're asking to extend that 27
4:05 am
months. that's part of it. we all want to have that too. >> number one, hillary clinton did nothing illegal. >> that's still to be determined. >> what's being investigated is whether she violated the rules with the e-mails. number two, she didn't hide anything. amy points out these additional e-mails. >> we're waiting for the potential if there's an indictment. the inspector general did the investigation. that part's done. we're waiting to see if there is a criminal indictment. that's what the fbi was involved with. >> right. a lot of experts that have come on the show say it's highly unlikely she'll be charged or indicted for any sort of criminal charges. when i say it's a breath of fresh air, she welcomed this interview. >> only because she would have been subpoenaed had she not done
4:06 am
this interview. this whole investigation is about her and her staff. it's easy for her to say i volunteer to go do that, but she really had no other option. >> let's be fair. let's look at the countless amount of people and the staff being interviewed for the last two years. the secretary has been very transparent about what she did. she's apologized for it. while the investigation is going on, she can't really comment because there's a legal investigation. but i think there's been a high level of transparency from her. >> thank you both again. as we wait to hear the outcome for hillary clinton, we're also waiting to here who she's going to choose as her
4:07 am
running mate. >> what i do know is that on the democratic side there are many fabulous candidates, people that could really be strong vice presidential candidates. >> that's not a no. >> that's exactly what it is. if you have a question like that, please direct it to the clinton campaign. bangladesh has started two days of mourning for the victims oh of a terror attack in dhaka. three american students are among those who have died. two were from emory university in georgia. the other student was headed into the university's business school in the fall. our affiliate in atlanta spoke to friends of the students about
4:08 am
what happened. >> the news and the images out of bangladesh have devastated friends of two students among the hostages killed friday. >> we don't know how to grasp this yet. no one ever could see it coming. >> they were both students at emee emory university. >> he reached out and offered to help. >> they were at a cafe together in the city of dhaka when terrorists stormed in. hours later they were dead. >> i don't even want to think about it. i'd rather to remember her with that smile that she had. >> she had just finished her
4:09 am
freshman year at the campus in oxford. hussein was preparing to transition to the business school in the fall. >> the chances of this happening is just so low. unbelievable tragedy. the university of california at berkeley says a student of the school was the third student kill kil killed. it was the deadliest, it was the boldest terror attack in the country. starting today thorauthorities have increased security around the attack site. this is video believed to show
4:10 am
commandos moving in to end the terror attack. take a look. the siege ended early yesterday morning. the attackers took hostages, got into a shootout with police. 13 hostages were rescued. cnn cannotindependently confirm the video's authenticity. >> at the crime scene we have seen part of a japanese delegation arrive. we also know that japan is sending in counter terrorism experts. that restaurant is sealed off while investigators do their work inside.
4:11 am
japanese family members of the victims with also set to arrive in dhaka where other family members are already doing the very grim job of being asked to identify the remains of their loved ones. >> bangladesh authorities have consistently denied an isis presence at all in the country despite previous isis claims of past attacks. in the past two years a wave of murders across bangladesh have targeted. isis has taken credit for the first blast which ripped through a busy commercial district. the second blast went off in an outdoor market. no one has claimed responsibility. rumored donald trump vice president pick newt gingrich has some advice for trump. he says get your act together.
4:12 am
>> trump's job is frankly to quit screwing up, get the election down to three or four big issues. >> he had more to say about the vice presidential role. plus, history will be made at fort brag at a baseball game. but before that, our newest sports contribute hines ward got a feel for the base from above. >> i'm definitely going to scream like a little girl. >> has anyone passed out before? >> absolutely. >> you're not a ravens fan, are you? ok team, what if 30,000 people download the new app? we're good. okay... what if a million people download the new app? we're good. five million? good. we scale on demand. hybrid infrastructure, boom. ok. what if 30 million people download the app? we're not good.

4:16 am
i suspect if it did come to anything, we'd have to have a very very long talk and depending on that talk have another long talk. >> newt gingrich weighing in on chatter that he could be donald trump's top pick for vice president. even vice president joe biden got in on the action. >> newt, are you going to do it? that's all i wanted to know. i wanted to get to the important things off the bat. >> and uh -- >> he needs the help, yes. >> the question was, should i -- >> should he be vice president. i tell him anyway it's a hell of a job, get a big pay raise. it's all work. >> cnn politics reporter eric
4:17 am
br bradner with us now. i want to hone in on something mr. gingrich said there. he said trump needs a vice president who understands president because he knows he doesn't. was that a dig at trump? or was that promoting the fact that his spoupporters love him because he is not establishment? >> he's speaking trump's language and saying, look, the message is enough and we don't need to worry about what the establishment says. and then he's speaking establishment washington's language and saying that trump's great, but he needs to really reign it in. and trump has always said he needs someone who can help him on capitol hill. this is a skill that he has not developed. and gingrich is someone who obviously has experience at speaker of the house. he's highlighting a trump
4:18 am
weakness that trump personally sees as something he can speak about himself, that he's acknowledged and sort of touts, like it's great that i'm an outsider but i do need someone who can help me play the inside game. >> let's talk about some of the inside names. chris christie, jeff sessions, mike pence. who do you think is resonating most and how important is that vice president pick when you're talking about presidential elections? is it more important, do you think, this time around than it has been in the past? >> i think it's possible, yes, it is more important. but it depends on which direction trump wants to go. this is something that could really help him soothe a lot of conservative donors picking someone that they find palatable. chris christie on one hand is sort of like trump.
4:19 am
he's bombastic. he's known for sort of saying, you know, throw out the establishment. whereas mike pence on the other hand is a diehard conservative. but he's also someone that is not really a big fan of raising a ruckus. you'll never see mike pence in an angry confrontation. he's got a really wide range of options here. he has to make the decision on temperamentally who he'd like to go with, what kind of style he wants as his number two. >> eric bradner, good to see you this morning. thank you. let's turn to the democrats now. he's been a top campaign surrogate for hillary clinton for months. could corey booker get the spot on the clinton ticket? you're going to hear his answer just ahead. also in florida take a look
4:20 am
at what's happening. thousands of residents are furious and demanding action after their toxic algae bloom is coating their coastline and scaring away tourists. >> reporter: it's disgusting. it looks gross and smells worse. residents are furious. they're hoping that we will come to a resolution on this in the near term. we'll have a full report coming up. oooh!

let's think about the florida coastal residents here for a second. they are furious about this toxic algae bloom that spoiled their beaches for the fourth of july holiday and beyond. look at all the people that came out here. 5,000 for a protest in stuart, florida, where thick, stinking scum makes it impossible for anybody to enjoy the water. >> our jennifer gray is joining us from stuart, florida, where it's just miserable. let's just call it what it is. the smell is terrible. i've been watching you in the preview monitor here. give us an idea of what's there and what the response has been from the people who live in that community. >> reporter: it's absolutely disgusting. it smells like a porta potty. it smells like sewage. it smells atrocious. and now that the sun is out, it
4:24 am
marinates it and makes it worse. florida, flown for their pristine waters, the recreational fishing, the tourism, now dealing with this in their backyards. those 5,000 people were protesting, spelling out with their bodies by the land. and that was in reference to an amendment that they passed in 2014 to buy the land south of lake okeechobee to store all of this disgusting water that has the fert lieilizers from the su industry to store that. but nothing has been done. they're shouting at lawmakers to say what's going on, we need this fixed. it's spilling into thee estuaries. it's a crisis here in florida. and so the governor has not been

it's a hell of a job. >> none of you should bet on all of this. it's wild speculation. >> two weeks ago you said you were not being vetted. is that still the case? ♪ a time of a bit of uncertainty ahead for the clinton campaign as the political world waits for the fbi's next move on her e-mail investigation. clinton was questioned by the fbi for 3.5 hours on saturday. the interview comes as clinton has wrapped up her battle against bernie sanders effectively and has turned exclusively to donald trump.
4:30 am
her campaign said in a statement this, secretary clinton gave a voluntary interview this morning about her e-mail arrangements while she was secretary. she is pleased to have had the opportunity to assist the department of justice in bringing this to a conclusion. she will not comment further on her interview. >> for a closer look, attorney general paige pate is with us. >> i think that was funny. it's always voluntary. no one is compelled to talk to the fbi, even if you're a defendant, you have a right not to talk to them. what i find very interesting here is the timing of all of this. this is an unusual investigation. think about it for a second. we have the presumptive democratic nominee sitting down with the fbi for 3.5 hours this close to the investigation.
4:31 am
the way they normally handle this investigation, you will start out talking to witnesses to try to find out more about the facts. if they thought hillary clinton was simply a witness, they would have gone to her earlier. but the other tact they take sometimes is if they're focusing on the person as a potential subject or targeted investigation, then they'll talk to the witnesses, gather the facts and wait until the end of the investigation, sit down with that person and either confront them with the evidence or try to get them to explain what they believe are inconsistencies. >> since she is the last interview, what do you take from that? >> i take that there's something there. if they did their investigation -- they've been looking at this for months -- and they found nothing, then why do they need to talk to her for
4:32 am
3.5 hours? >> there have been a lot of questions as well about the bill clinton and loretta lynch meeting on monday and the timing of that. what do you make of the fact that she has said i have been available to the fbi since august to talk to them. why this week? >> i think the timing is incredibly coincidental. it's hard for me to believe that over the past several months -- i know her lawyers have been talking to the fbi. >> she's been campaigning. >> of course. but this is a priority. you're going to want to have this interview as soon as they are willing to talk to you. i know they wanted to wait until close to the end of the investigation before they talked to her. before this weekend, i think that must have been prompted by the meeting between loretta lynch and bill clinton. >> both have come out and said we would have handled this differently.
4:33 am
no doubt about it. if loretta lynch, who has said she will take the recommendations of in this, if she's not the one who is going to make this final decision, who does that fall on? >> right. who is in charge of this investigation? if the attorney general is basically saying i'm not going to make the final decision here, then who is? if there's that much of a problem even if nothing really happened in the meeting -- but there's now this perception that something's wrong. why not have somebody else step in? why not appoint a special prosecutor to come in at this stage and review what's been done and make a final decision? >> we appreciate your insight on this. >> thank you. we're about two weeks out now from the start of the republican national convention and speculation is of course ramping up over who donald trump will choose as his running mate.
4:34 am
topping the list, newt gingrich. here's what the former republican house speaker said about the vice presidential job on saturday at the aspen ideas festival. >> the number one definition of the vice president's job is the president. so who knows? some presidents give a lot of power to vice presidents. at least trump has said over and over he needs a vice president who understands washington, because he knows he doesn't. well, if he really means that -- because people often maneuver a lot. i suspect if it did come to anything, we'd have to have a very, very long talk. and depending on that talk, we'd have to have another long talk. >> let's turn to the democrats now and the talk heating up over the possibility of a hillary clinton/corey booker ticket. watch this. >> two weeks ago you said you were not being vetted to be
4:35 am
hillary clinton's vice presidential running mate. is that still the case? have you, has your staff provided any personal documents to the clinton campaign? >> at this point i've answered this question, talked at this. i'm referring questions about the vice president to the woman who's going to have to make that decision. >> that is not a no, sir. >> that's exactly what it is. >> last hour we talked with a panel about what booker would bring to a clinton campaign. >> absolutely. he is an inspiring rising star on the democratic party.telegte. he speaks spanish.
4:36 am
energizing the base and not just getting support of latino voters and african-american voters but energizing them to come out in major droves on election day is going to be super important. he does that, actually. he would be an ideal vice president candidate to support clinton. he checks a lot of those boxes. and him referring questions to the candidate, that's not a no for sure. and that's something that suggests that he's being seriously vetted and reviewed by the clinton campaign. >> not a no for sure. be sure to watch the full interview on state of the union coming up at 9:00 eastern right here on cnn. history's going to be made today at fort brag. major league baseball honoring the troops this weekend hosting its very first major league

we have heard from so many today world leaders on the passing of elie wiesel. as president i was honored to have consulted with this fine citizen of the world. he was an example of a gracious life. that earned him the noble the extraordinary legacy of ellie wessel. he would become the most famous survivor of the holocaust. at the age of 15 elie wiesel had no fears when his family was rounded up and hungry by the nazis. >> i wasn't worried.
4:50 am
we had no idea that auschwitz existed. >> it changed when he was transported which cattle car with hundreds of others. >> i knew it was something terrible, it was something terrifying that was in store for us. >> arrival at auschwitz, the extermination camp. an older inmate advises him, tell the germans you're 18 years old, a candidate for work, it saved his life. or what would pass as life in the death camps. trapped in a nightmare, wiesel sustained himself by keeping his father alive. father and son were later taken to buchenwald camp. his father, shlomo, died weeks before the u.s. army arrived. >> the gates swings open from german concentration camps. >> this picture was taken after liberation. wiesel is in the second level of the bunk next to the beam. he would later say he didn't recognize himself.
4:51 am
