7:05 am
now with matatthew dowd, our matthew, you think hillary should make another new year's clinton that much. clinton at home in the course of one, we all know he's popular. the problem is he rereinforces of the past. even if you like that past, it's part of the past. and voters always want the the other thing i think is this republican primary. it helps him because hillary clintois despised by republican voters.. and it's a bank-shot through bill to get to hillary. that's why i think in the end, in the short term, this helps donald trump. >> so he's attacking bill clinton. meanwhile, you see all these other republican candidates in this final four weeks until the iowa caucuses really starting to attack each other. >> yeah, we're in the time of the thing w where it' musical chairs but there's no teacher in the classroom to keep the rules. more chairs have been pulled out. limited space so see who can stay in. we have green eggs and ham and fantasy foototball andimited chairs and people are trying to dance arn and get the last few

7:31 am
to abc news,rosecutor ken kratz alleges important evidence was left out of the documentary. idence like avery had drawn a torture chamber while in prison, that avery called the victim's job to specifically request halbach the day she died. and that he called her cell phone three times, twice using the star 67 feature to hide his identity. the filmmakers say they were always concerned with fairness and accuracy. >> from my perspectivet's a fair representation of what we witnessed going on and that the prosecution and the victim's family have voices in this series we hear them talking about how they're feeling. we hear the prosecutor talking about why he thinks his case is strong. >> reporter: when abc news approached netflix, we were told there was no further comment. for "good morning america," linsey davis, abc news, new york. >> thanks, linsey. we are joined by the former prosecutor at the center of that case, ken kratz. thanks for joining us.
7:32 am
left out. why do you think they left it out? >> obviously this wasn't a documentary y at all. this was a defense piece. itas generated by and for steven avery by his defense team. it wasn't until netflix decided to repackage this as a documentary that both sides were invited to participate. and so if some of the evidence at was selected, i would call it handpked or cherry-picked over an8-month period, didn't fit with the narrative or the conclusion that mr. avery s the product of a conspiracy or some planting of evidence, it's my belief that the filmmakers just wouldn't include that information. my bgest concern about this whole process was their decision then to call it a documentary. >> you think steven avery should have a new trial? >> this docudrama i think it's called, itself is not going to form the basis of a new trial.
7:33 am
attention it receives, unless there's a legal challenge that comes forth, there shouldn't be any reason for a new trial. >> the filmmakers also included information about you in the domentary. something we covered in years office because of a sexting scandal. do you think that was relevant and is that why you didn't participate in the film? >> well, that part of the casese is rather disturbing. they included some p problems at i engaged in which were deplorable. there wasn't any excuse for that kind of behavior. bu they happened three yearsrs after the conclusion of the avery case, and s so the revapsevance didn't make any sense to me, and really a lot of the people that watched it. they don't havanything to do however with the steven avery case. the filmmakers knew that and to include it, i think, was unfair. >> finally several hundreded ousand people have petitioned
7:34 am
what do you say to them? >> well, as i understand, the president, since it's a state case, wouldn't have any pardon opportunity. and i doubt that any executive officer, whether it's the president or the governor, is going to weigh in on this in any substantial way. it's unfortunate, however, that the victim's family really has to go through questions and this kind of nonsense that law enforcement is responsible for the death of their family member rather than those that were convicted of the crimes. >> mr. kratz, thanks for your time this morning. >> all right. george, have a good day. >> he's right about that. the president really has no grounds for stepping in here. >> a lot of people are talalking about this documentary. coming up caught on camera, a woman escaping from a carjacker. how she was finally able to break free.
