7:08 am
some confusion this morning about whether or not he's about to get the endorsement of house speaker paul ryan. >> yeah, we were told point blank from trump campaign sources that a ryan endorsement is coming but this morning paul ryan's spokesman said he hasn't told him anything but there is little doubt he will eventually endorse him and trust me when, when it comes it won't be because trump suddenly turned a new leaf or changed his tone but because ryan and other republicans are concerned the divisions will really hurt the party. >> meantime, trump is getting called out for promoting conspiracy theories saying there is something fishy about the death of vince foster who worked with the clintons in the white house but the trump campaign completely undeterred. >> senior trump campaign sources tell me that trump will continue to hammer bill clinton on his issues with women, relentlessly from now until november, they are convinced this is effective. it puts bill clinton on the

7:10 am
but you can send a message they can't ignore. >> reporter: hillary clinton is in the golden state too but her attention not on the upcoming primary. clinton not even once mentioning her democratic opponent by name. but she did find time to stop by for "the ellen show" getting big laughs when she chose "scandal" star tony goldwyn over sanders as a possible vice presidential pick. >> bernie sanders. >> tony. >> tony. >> clinton's massive delegate lead this morning, sanders is fighting to stay in the race and every delegate counts. last week's primary in kentucky so close, sanders is now requesting a recanvas, elections officials now preparing to check every voting machine and absentee ballot on the line for sanders, one delegate. the vermont senator now facing mounting questions about whether staying in the race could hurt the party. but he told "the view" he is not going anywhere. >> no, i don't think i'm harming

7:13 am
crippling security lines at our nation's airports. a top tsa official has been removed from his post and the agency is taking new action to cut down wait times ahead of a showdown with lawmakers on capitol hill. abc's david kerley covering it all for us at reagan national airport. >> reporter: congress heard the complaints from passengers who have been in these long arduous lines and the tsa administrator testifying he's taken action in the past couple of days. the question, will that be enough? he created a tsa command center that will work with the airlines and if there's an expected surge in an airport additional canine units and screeners deployed to deal with that workload. also the head of security has been removed from that position. he was in charge when the tsa failed 95% of the tests last year to get in banned substances. he was also given $90,000 in bonuses so he is gone. tomorrow, robin, the airlines are going to be testifying, as well. >> so, david, all that you said, do you think that's going to
7:14 am
satisfy members of congress and will it shorten those lines? >> reporter: it probably won't satisfy congress. there has been some movement into some hubs taking more officers to chicago and in new york to reduce the lines there. many are calling on congress including the white house to fund more officers because more of us are flying this year and there are the same number of officers, the math just doesn't add up, robin. >> of course the holiday weekend right upon us. thank you, david. >> a couple days away. a lawsuit involving one of baseball's biggest stars. the family of the late tony gwynn filed a wrongful death suit against the tobacco industry saying chewing tobacco caused the oral cancer that killed him. abc's ryan smith has the story. >> reporter: tony gwynn was one of baseball's icons inspiring fans around the world until his death at age 54. now his family say big tobacco rode his coattails to big profits targeting the star since his college days. >> there it is, number 3,000 for tony gwynn.
7:15 am

7:31 am
i'm kidding. the winners are eventually going to get here, we believe. champs val and nyle, ginger and val and paige and mark. you know what happens when you're tired, surprises. we have lots of surprises for them. we'll wake them up when they get here. so much fun in just a bit. >> until then we have other news including that bill cosby bombshell. he will stand trial on charges he drugged and sexually assault women in 2004. abc's linsey davis is outside the courtroom in philadelphia. good morning, linsey. >> reporter: good morning, george. the face-to-face encounter between bill cosby and one of his accusers andrea constand didn't happen at yesterday's hearing but she is expected to testify at the trial. still, there was lots of drama in the courtroom. the 78-year-old actor waved to fans on his way into court tuesday where he learned the fate of his effort to avoid prosecution. a pennsylvania judge ruling
7:32 am
there is enough evidence for him to stand trial in a sexual assault case. >> she was unable to consent, you know, that's the crime. >> reporter: not present in court, andrea constand who prosecutors say was drugged and sexually assaulted by the comedian at his pennsylvania home in 2004. according to the criminal complaint constand told investigators cosby urged her to take three blue pills and after ingesting them everything became blurry and dizzy saying she was unable to move or speak during the assault and describing her condition as frozen and paralyzed. cosby never criminally prosecuted and the prosecutor declining to press charges at the time. in a civil deposition related to the same alleged encounter cosby admitted to kissing and heavy petting with constand but maintained it was consensual. >> there was no evidence of a crime here. and that the inconsistencies that plague this investigation from the beginning continue to plague it now. >> reporter: during the 3 1/2-hour hearing cosby's
7:33 am
attorneys gave insight into their possible defense. >> after the so-called incident, the complainant continued to contact mr. cosby, the complainant accepted a dinner invitation from mr. cosby. >> this is wrong. >> reporter: this morning, a group of cosby supporters say they've spent thousands of dollars to get ads on the air in defense of the embattled comedian calling the case against cosby a witch-hunt. more than 50 women have accused cosby of sexual assault. you can expect that the prosecution is likely going to fight vigorously to try to get their testimony included in this case. cosby's defense team has repeatedly denied the allegations against him. robin. >> linsey, thank you. joining us now is nancy grace, host of "nancy grace" on hln and here in the studio our chief legal analyst dan abrams. nancy, let me begin with you, prosecutors at the time of the alleged assault did not file criminal charges so how strong is this case against bill cosby?
7:34 am
>> well, i find that very disturbing that they did not go forward, but what i think is more important than the prosecution's decision not to go forward way back in 2005 is the fact that she went to authorities. it's not as if she sat back and thought about it all these years, took a money settlement and then at the last moment just before the statute of limitations runs she goes forward with criminal charges. she went to police and made as we call it in the law an outcry. she told people what happened at the time. that's very significant. >> yeah, people need to keep that in mind, of course. constand as we have heard in linsey's report one of many women who have come and accused bill cosby. will that -- will others come forward. >> that's the most important legal question in the case. they've come forward. the question will they be able to testify? >> exactly. >> if they are, this case against bill cosby is going to be a very powerful, strong one. if they can't, if a court deems that they cannot testify as part
7:35 am
of this case, this is not going to be that easy a case against bill cosby. yes, they have statements from his deposition which fundamentally change things. yes, they'll have her account. but keep in mind, it took her many months if not almost a year to come forward to report the crime. there's the time that has passed since then, there is the he said/she said element of this and let's not just presume because it's moving forward it will be a slam dunk for prosecutors. >> the defense, nancy -- >> he's right. you can't presume anything. >> right. you know the defense was vocal in the preliminary hearing yesterday. they were even shouting at times and constand was not there for the preliminary hearing and, of course, she would have to be in court at some time, wouldn't she? >> well, yes, under the constitution the accused who is bill cosby has a right to confront and cross-examine his accuser. but, you know, all that blustering and grandstanding by the defense, that didn't mean a
7:36 am
hill of beans to me. she did not have to be at the preliminary hearing. that is standard in most jurisdictions. i expected the defense attorney to bluster his way and complain and scream but i think, dan, you really hit the nail on the head in that -- there have been cases for i got up to ten similar transactions in on the case in chief. if they come in, this case is over and i think cosby's own words under oath are going to haunt him. >> would you expect her to take the stand. >> she will take the stand. the fact she didn't testify in the preliminary hearing doesn't mean anything. she will testify in the criminal case. >> dan, nancy, nancy, always good to see you. thank you very much, both of you. >> likewise. >> okay. thank you. coming up you've seen ads for video doorbells. it lets you answer the door even when you're not home but can it really help catch crooks?

investigates" and this morning we're looking at video doorbells. they let you pretend you're home when you're not and claim they can help catch thieves who steal packages outside your house and abc's linzie janis is giving the smart cameras a try. >> reporter: from knoxville to las vegas, doorbells equipped with video cameras are recording suspected burglars at their owner's doors. one even capturing this curious bear. you've probably seen the ads. >> i invented rings you can see and speak to whoever is at your home from your smartphone. >> reporter: so how well do video doorbells work? "gma investigates" trying out two, ring and its main competitor skybell. both work via an app on your phone and both have motion
7:42 am
detectors that trigger the camera to record movement and send you an alert. even if someone doesn't actually ring the bell. >> all right. there's motion at my front door. >> reporter: first how well do they allow us to communicate? we arrange for two package deliveries for each video doorbell. >> hi there. >> making a delivery. >> reporter: using ring i could talk to the delivery person both times, even though i was in my office far away. the same with skybell. we used the hd version. no problem. >> have a nice day. >> reporter: but could these video doorbells really help identify a package thief? we asked staffers to take the packages. we also installed traditional surveillance cameras to compare the video. first up ring. it notified us both times. but when our pretend thief moved quickly, we only got a side view of his face. for skybell, our first pretend thief as seen on our surveillance cameras is very fast. no alert video.
7:43 am
and our second pretend thief is slower. we do get an alert but the recording only captures the side of her face and her back making it hard to identify her. we showed the video to criminal investigator glen bard. >> i would want to inhabit so they would catch her as she's walking up. >> reporter: when it came to nightvision both outperformed our security camera. >> they both are pretty clear. >> i spoke with both companies about our findings. first ring. when we had someone take a package off of the stoop, we didn't get a good look at their face. >> sometimes you get in that wi-fi not having a great signal to that area can cause things like slight delays and so we do work with our customers so we capture great face shots of everyone coming up. >> reporter: then skybell. >> so the software of the skybell that you tested is actually set to trigger an alert for motion that happens for ten seconds or more. >> reporter: since our experiment skybell tells us it's
