FINDING THE AGENCY REPEATEDLY BOTCHED ITS PANDEMIC RESPONSE AND FAILED TO MEET THE MOMENT OF CRISIS. THE CDC, LONG UNDER FIRE FOR ITS MASKING AND VACCINES OVER THE LAST TWO YEARS. >> IT'S JUST REALLY CONFUSING. IT'S LIKE THIS PATCHWORK OF DIFFERENT RULES. >> IT'S CONTRADICTING. IT'S A LOT OF THINGS GOING ON. DON'T DO THIS, DON'T DO THAT. AND YOU HAVE TO LISTEN TO BOTH. >> BUT THE CDC'S OWN DIRECTOR, CALLING FOR THE ETERNALLY INITIATED REVIEW. STUDYING AT THE CDC'S -- THE REVIEW FOUND THE SANDERS COVID RECOMMENDATIONS CONFUSING AND OVERWHELMING AND IT'S WEBSITE NOT EASY TO NAVIGATE. DOCTOR WALENSKY, VOWING A MAJOR OVERHAUL OF THE AGENCY. SHE IS ALSO CALLING FOR INTERNAL STAFFING CHANGES AND SHARING INFORMATION FASTER AND PLAIN LANGUAGE EASY TO UNDERSTAND. THIS COMES AS MILLIONS OF AMERICANS MIGHT SOON BE ABLE TO GET THE NEW COVID BOOSTER, TAILORED TO TARGET THE ORIGINAL COVID STRAIN AND THE OMICRON, BA.4, AND BA.5 SUBVARIANTS. WHITE HOUSE COVID COORDINATOR, DOCTOR ASHISH JHA, SAYING THOSE REVAMPED SHOPPED COULD -- >> THESE ARE SUBSTANTIAL UPGRADES IN OUR VACCINES AND THOSE VACCINES ARE COMING VERY SOON. >> THOSE BOOSTERS, EXPECTED TO BE FOR THOSE WHO ARE 12 YEARS AND OLDER FOR PFIZER. AND 18 YEARS AND OLDER FOR MODERNA, WITH AN EXPECTATION OF THE NEW BOOSTERS FOR YOUNGER CHILDREN TO FOLLOW. >> -- THE DOCTOR SAID THOSE NEW BOOSTERS COULD BE AVAILABLE IN JUST THREE WEEKS. GIVE US THE REALITY CHECK. DO HEALTH OFFICIALS THINK THAT IS POSSIBLE? >> LINDSEY, THAT IS THE BIG QUESTION. THE FDA IS EXPECTED TO GIVE ITS GREENLIGHT IN THE COMING WEEKS. THE CDC ADVISORY PANEL WILL MEET, AND THE CDC DIRECTORS ARE EXPECTED TO SIGN OFF SHORTLY AFTER THAT. OFFICIALS DO BELIEVE THAT THESE NEW BOOSTERS WILL ROLL OUT AS EARLY AS SEPTEMBER. >> ALL RIGHT. RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER. OUR THANKS TO YOU. RUDY GIULIANI APPEARED UNDER OATH BEFORE A SPECIAL GRAND JURY IN ATLANTA TODAY. PROSECUTORS HAVE CURLED THE -- BUT HE IS A TARGET OF THE CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION INTO POTENTIAL CRIMINAL MEDDLING IN THE 2020 GENERAL ELECTION IN GEORGIA. ABC'S -- >> WHEN YOU MET WITH GEORGIA LAWMAKERS, DID YOU LIE TO THEM? >> THIS WAS NOT A TRIP TO GEORGIA -- THAT RUDY GIULIANI WANTED TO MAKE. THE MAN AND A ONCE CALLED AMERICA'S MAYOR, HAS DEFINED HIS REPUTATION WITH LIES ABOUT THE 2020 ELECTION. HE WAS PUT UNDER OATH TODAY IN THE COURTHOUSE, WHERE HE IS SUSPECTED OF TRYING TO HELP STEAL THE VOTE. HE WAS CAUGHT HERE BY A SPECIAL JAMMED -- INVESTIGATING CLAIMS THAT FORMER PRESIDENT TRUMP AND HIS FRIENDS TRY TO CHANGE THE ELECTION RESULT IN GEORGIA SO THAT TRUMP COULD WIN. WHILE TESTIFYING BEFORE STATE LAWMAKERS, HE MADE FALSE CLAIMS ABOUT ELECTION FRAUD, INCLUDING COMMENTS THAT DID NOT SIT WELL WITH BLACK ELECTION WORKERS. >> IT LOOKS LIKE THEY'RE PASSING OUT DOPE, NOT BALLOTS. IT IS QUITE CLEAR THEY'RE STEALING VOTES. >> -- PRODUCING SUITCASES OF ILLEGAL BALLOTS. CHARGES THAT WERE INVESTIGATED AND PROVEN A LIE BY STATE REPUBLICANS. THOSE SAME ELECTION WORKERS TOLD THE JANUARY SIX COMMITTEE THAT PEOPLE STARTED THREATENING TO KILL THEM. THIS COULD LEAD TO A REPORT. IT WOULD TAKE ANOTHER GRANDEUR TO DECIDE IF ANYONE FACES CHARGES. >> -- JUST REMIND US WHO ELSE COULD BE CALLED TO TESTIFY IN THIS PROBE? >> U.S. SENATOR LINDSEY GRAHAM HAS BEEN TOLD HE NEEDS TO SHOW UP IN GEORGIA AND TESTIFY. HE IS FIGHTING THAT CALL FOR AN APPEARANCE. THE GOVERNOR OF GEORGIA HAS ALSO BEEN TOLD THAT HE NEEDS TO APPEAR TONIGHT. HE IS ANNOUNCING THAT HE IS FIGHTING THIS APPEARANCE AND THEN, OF COURSE, THERE'S THE PERSON AT THE CENTER OF ALL OF THIS, AND THAT IS THE FORMER PRESIDENT, DONALD TRUMP, WHO COULD BE CALLED TO TESTIFY IN GEORGIA. >> WE WILL SEE HOW IT ALL PLAYS OUT. STEVE, OUR THANKS TO YOU AS ALWAYS. FOR MORE ON THIS, WE'RE JOINED NOW BY ABC NEWS CONTRIBUTOR -- A FORMER PROSECUTOR -- THANK YOU FOR BEING WITH US. WE SAW RUDY GIULIANI APPEAR TODAY BEFORE THAT GRAND JURY IN ATLANTA. WHAT IS THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THIS ACTION, FOR HIM AND JUST IN GENERAL? >> FOR HIM, IT'S HIGHLY SIGNIFICANT. NOBODY WANTS TO BE TOLD THAT THEY ARE THE TARGET OF A CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION. LAW ENFORCEMENT USUALLY PUTS PEOPLE IN THREE BUCKETS. YOU'RE EITHER A TARGET, A SUBJECT, OR A WITNESS. AND EVERYBODY WANTS TO BE A WITNESS. >> AND COURT IS EXPECTED TO DECIDE TOMORROW, WHETHER OR NOT TO MAKE THAT FULL AFFIDAVIT PUBLIC WITH REGARD TO THE RAID ON MAR-A-LAGO. WHAT IS THE SIGNIFICANCE ON THAT? WE KNOW THE DA TREE -- DOJ HAS PUSHBACK ON THAT. WHY? >> THERE WILL BE AN ORAL ARGUMENT ABOUT WHETHER THE AFFIDAVIT, THE DOCUMENT THAT SUPPORTS THE SEARCH WARRANT ON TRUMP'S A STATE, IS GOING TO BE UNSEALED. THERE WILL BE AN ARGUMENT ABOUT IT. YOU ARE RIGHT. DOJ HAS PUT FORTH A VERY STRENUOUS ARGUMENT, AND A GOOD ONE, THAT THAT AFFIDAVIT SHOULD NOT BE UNSEALED. MY BET IS THE JUDGE WILL DEFER TO DOJ. JUDGES AND COURTS USUALLY DEFER TO LAW ENFORCEMENT. WHEN THEY SAY LISTEN, THIS DOCUMENT IS GOING TO REALLY MESS UP OUR CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION, NO COURT IS GOING TO OPPOSE THAT. SO, IT WILL REMAIN SEALED. >> WHAT IS THE FORMER PRESIDENTS INTEREST IN MAKING SURE THAT IT IS RELEASED? IS THIS PURELY POLITICAL? >> IT'S HARD TO SAY. ONE WAY OR THE OTHER. ACTUALLY, MY VIEW IS, HE REALLY SHOULD NOT HAVE AN INTEREST IN HAVING THIS RELEASED. IT COULD END UP THAT NO INDICTMENT EVER COMES. NO CHARGES EVER COME. AND THE PUBLIC IS GOING TO HAVE SOMETHING VERY DETAILED ABOUT WHAT'S POTENTIAL CHARGES COULD HAVE BEEN MADE. >> WE ALSO LEARNED THIS WEEK THAT FORMER PRESIDENT TRUMP'S TOP LAWYERS HAD BEEN INVESTIGATED OR INTERVIEWED WITH REGARD TO THAT RAID. WHAT IS THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THAT? >> I THINK THAT JUST SHOWS THAT DOJ REALLY DOTTED ALL ITS EYES AND CROSSED ALL ITS T'S WHEN IT LOOKED INTO TRYING TO GET A SEARCH WARRANT. OF COURSE, YOU WILL TALK TO THE PEOPLE CLOSEST TO THE FORMER PRESIDENT. SO, IT MAKES SENSE THAT THEY SPOKE WITH THESE ADVISERS, CLOSE ADVISERS, TO THE FORMER PRESIDENT, IN SEEKING WHETHER THEY SHOULD GET A SEARCH WARRANT. >> FOR PEOPLE AT HOME WHO REALLY DON'T KNOW THE INS AND OUTS AS YOU DO, LEGALLY, WHO ARE SAYING WHAT, THEY JUST INVADED HIS HOUSE AND HIS PROPERTY AND TOOK HIS PERSONAL THINGS, HOW CUSTOMARY IS IT, WITH THE EXCEPTION THAT IN THIS CASE, IT INVOLVED A FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES? >> SEARCH WARRANTS ARE SOUGHT AND EXECUTED IN THIS COUNTRY EVERY DAY. THERE ARE GUIDEPOSTS THAT PROSECUTORS, AGENTS, AND JUDGES HAVE TO USE BEFORE THEY AUTHORIZE A SEARCH WARRANT. THIS HAPPENS. THIS IS NORMAL. IF THERE IS A CRIME THAT LAW ENFORCEMENT THINKS IS BEING COMMITTED AND THEY NEED EVIDENCE OF THAT CRIME AND THEY THINK EVIDENCE OF THAT CRIME IS SOMEWHERE, THEY WILL SEEK A SEARCH WARRANT. >> AND BASED ON WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE WORKS, YOU WOULD SAY THAT THEY PROBABLY DOTTED EVERY I TWICE, CROSSED EVERY T TWICE, BECAUSE THEY KNEW, THEY HAD TO KNOW, THAT THEY WOULD GET PUSHBACK PUBLICLY, IF NOT EVEN BEYOND THAT? >> ABSOLUTELY. THIS IS NOT SOMETHING THAT I THINK ANY PROSECUTOR WOULD EVER TAKE LIGHTLY. AN AGENT INVOLVED, A JUDGE INVOLVED -- EVERYBODY WANTS TO MAKE SURE THAT THIS IS DONE IN THE RIGHT WAY AND THAT THEY ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO DO IT BEFORE DOING IT. >> THERE IS LIKELY SOME THERE THERE. [LAUGHS] FORMER FEDERAL PROSECUTOR -- THANK YOU. AFTER LOSING HER HIGH PROFILE HOUSE RACE, -- MAY HAVE HER EYES SET ON A DIFFERENT HOUSE, THE WHITE HOUSE. SHE WARNED OF TRUMP'S LIES. IN HER CONCESSION SPEECH, SHE SAID THE REAL WORK BEGINS. -- >> DONALD TRUMP ABOUT A TAKEDOWN LIZ CHENEY AND HE DID. HIS CANDIDATE IN WYOMING, TROUNCING HER. >> FOR CHENEY, IT IS NOW FULL SPEED AHEAD ON HER NEXT PHASE OF HER MISSION ON DENYING TRUMP'S RETURN TO POWER. SHE DID WHAT TRUMP HAS NEVER DONE, ADMIT SHE LOST. >> TONIGHT, HARRIET HAGEMAN HAS RECEIVED THE MOST VOTES IN THIS PRIMARY, SHE WON. I CALLED HER TO CONCEDE THE RACE. THIS PRIMARY ELECTION IS OVER. BUT NOW THE REAL WORK BEGINS. [APPLAUSE] >> SHE ANNOUNCED TODAY SHE HAD SET UP A NEW POLITICAL ORGANIZATION, NOT JUST TO CHALLENGE TRUMP, BUT ALSO ANY CANDIDATES WHO DENY THE TRUTH ABOUT THE 2020 ELECTION. IT IS A MOVE THAT PITS ARE AGAINST SOME OF THE LEADING PIT -- >> NO AMERICAN SHOULD SUPPORT ELECTION DENIERS FOR ANY POSITION OF GENUINE RESPONSIBILITY, WHERE THEIR REFUSAL TO FOLLOW THE RULE OF LAW WILL CORRUPT OUR FUTURE. >> WE WERE WINNING EVERYTHING. >> SHE ISN'T JUST CALLING OUT TRUMP'S LIES ABOUT THE ELECTION, SHE ACCUSED HIM OF SOWING THE SEEDS OF MORE JANUARY 6TH LIKE VIOLENCE WITH HIS ATTACKS ON FEDERAL AGENTS AFTER THE FBI SEARCHED HIS MAR-A-LAGO HOME. SHE SINGLED OUT HIS TERM -- >> THIS IS YET ANOTHER INSIDIOUS LIE. DONALD TRUMP KNOWS THAT VOICING THESE CONSPIRACIES WILL PROVOKE VIOLENCE AND THREATS OF VIOLENCE. IT IS ENTIRELY FORESEEABLE THAT THE VIOLENCE WILL ESCALATE FURTHER. YET, HE AND OTHERS CONTINUE, PURPOSEFULLY, TO FEED THE DANGER. >> TODAY, CHENEY'S DIRE WARNINGS TO REPUBLICANS WAS ECHOED BY FORMER VICE PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE. >> THESE ATTACKS ON THE FBI MUST SPA -- STOP. THEY ARE JUST AS WRONG AS CALLS TO DEFUND THE POLICE. >> JUST BACK FROM WYOMING, THE FORMER VICE PRESIDENT MAKING SOME NEWS TODAY ABOUT THE JANUARY SIX COMMITTEE. >> HE WAS ASKED IF YOU WOULD BE WILLING TO TESTIFY BEFORE THE COMMITTEE. AND HE SAID THAT HE WOULD CONSIDER IT. HE CERTAINLY DID MAKE A COMMITMENT THAT HE WOULD DO IT. BUT HE SUGGESTED THAT HE WAS OPEN, IF HE WAS ASKED, IF HE WAS INVITED BY THE COMMITTEE TO TESTIFY, TO DO SO. THE COMMITTEE HAS NOT EXTENDED THAT REQUEST YET. ALTHOUGH, AS YOU KNOW, SEVERAL OF FORMER VICE PRESIDENT PENCE'S TOP AIDES HAVE TESTIFIED BEFORE THE COMMITTEE. >> AND JOHN, LIZ CHENEY, VICE CHAIR OF THAT COMMITTEE, IS SHE CONTEMPLATING HER NEXT MOVE, WHICH COULD INCLUDE A RUN FOR PRESIDENT, EVEN THOUGH SHE DID LOSE HER PRIMARY BY 37 POINTS, -- IS THERE A PATH FORWARD FOR HER? >> I MEAN, IT IS REALLY HARD TO SEE A PATH FOR LIZ CHENEY IN A PARTY WHERE DONALD TRUMP REMAINS THE MOST POPULAR FIGURE BY FAR AMONG THE PARTIES RANK AND FILE VOTERS, BUT LOOK WHERE WE ARE NOW, LIZ CHENEY IS THE MOST HIGH-PROFILE, THE MOST OUT PRO GUN -- OUTSPOKEN -- SHE SEES THAT AS A MOVEMENT. A BATTLE INSIDE THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AND OUTSIDE THE PARTY. I WOULDN'T RULE ANYTHING OUT FOR LIZ CHENEY. >> WE WILL SEE HOW MANY FOLLOWERS SHE GETS. JONATHAN CARL, OUR THANKS TO YOU AS ALWAYS. >> THANK YOU. >> WE SHIFT NOW TO THE HORRIFYING STABBING OF FAMED OF SALMAN RUSHDIE. THE SUSPECT GAVE HIS FIRST INTERVIEW AND ADMITTED WHAT HE WAS MOST SURPRISED BY. EVA PILGRIM HAS MORE -- WAS HE INSPIRED BY THE IRANIAN -- 1989 EDICT, CALLING FOR SALMAN RUSHDIE'S THE DEATH? >> TONIGHT, FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE HE WAS SEEN ATTACKING FAMED AUTHOR SALMAN RUSHDIE, HADI MATAR IS TALKING, TELLING THE NEW YORK POST, HE THOUGHT HE KILLED HIM. SAYING, QUOTE, WHEN I HEARD HE SAW BRIBED, HE WAS SURPRISED. -- WITH THAT TO GIVE A TALK AT THE -- WHEN HADI MATAR RUSHED THE STAGE AND ALLEGEDLY STABBED HIM TEN TIMES. HIS OWN MOTHER REPORTEDLY DISOWNING HIM. WELL IRAN HAS OFFICIALLY DENIED ANY INVOLVEMENT, AT LEAST ONE IRANIAN PAPER CALLED IT DIVINE REVENGE. HADI MATAR DENIED BEING IN CONTACT WITH IRAN AND WOULD NOT SAY IF HE WAS INSPIRED BY THE CALL FOR -- BUT HE SAID, I RESPECT HIM. I THINK HE'S A GREAT PERSON. WHILE HE ADMITTED HE ONLY READ A COUPLE PAGES OF THE BOOK, HE DID SAY HE WATCHED HIS LECTURES ONLINE AND ACCUSED THE 75 YEAR OLD OF BEING SOMEONE WHO ATTACKED ISLAM. >> EVA PILGRIM JOINS US NOW. HAS A SUSPECTED ATTACK OR ENTERED A PLEA YET? >> YES LINDSEY. HE HAS PLEADED NOT GUILTY TO ATTEMPTED MURDER. HE IS EXPECTED IN COURT ON FRIDAY. >> ALL RIGHT, EVA PILGRIM, OUR THANKS TO YOU. A FIFTH SET OF SKELETAL REMAINS HAVE NOW BEEN RECOVERED IN NEVADA'S LAKE MEAD AS WATER LEVELS REMAIN SHOCKINGLY LOW DUE TO A PROLONGED DROUGHT. ONCE A VITAL SOURCE OF WATER, IT IS NOW REVEALING SOME DARK REALITIES. OUR CHIEF NATIONAL CORRESPONDENT MATT GUTMAN HAS MORE DETAILS. >> THE EVER RECEDING WATERS OF LAKE MEAD REVEALING YET ANOTHER GRIM FIND. PARK RANGERS AND A POLICE DIVE TEAM RECOVERING A SET OF HUMAN REMAINS ON TUESDAY. >> THEY HAVE BEEN FINDING BODIES EVERY WEEK OR SO. IT HAS BEEN KIND OF CRAZY. >> THESE ARE THE FIFTH HUMAN REMAINS TO BE FOUND IN THE LAKES RECEDING WATERS SINCE MAY. SOME OF THE REMAINS FROM EARLIER THIS SUMMER WERE FOUND IN A BARREL. WITH AUTHORITIES BELIEVE THE VICTIM LIKELY DIED OF A GUNSHOT WOUND, 40 OR 50 YEARS AGO. THEY'RE INVESTIGATING IT AS A HOMICIDE. AS ALARMING AS THESE FINDINGS ARE, IT REVEALS SOMETHING ELSE. THE CLIMATE CRISIS. THE LAKE OF VITAL SOURCE OF WATER FOR MORE THAN 25 MILLION PEOPLE ACROSS SEVERAL STATES, AND MEXICO NOW SETTING HISTORICAL RECORDS. AND FOR MORE THAN A YEAR, WE HAVE BEEN REPORTING THE DRASTIC CHANGES TO LAKE MEAD. DECADES AGO THE WATER LEVEL HERE AT LAKE MEAD WAS SO HIGH THAT THERE WERE ACTUALLY WORRIED IT WOULD LAP OVER THE HOOVER DAM. BUT TONIGHT, LAKE MEAD IS JUST 27% FULL. MORE THAN 70% OF THE U.S. EXPERIENCING MODERATE DROUGHT CONDITIONS, OR WORSE, AMPLIFIED BY CLIMATE CHANGE. >> SEEMS LIKE WE ARE SOUNDING THE ALARM DAY AFTER DAY. MATT GUTMAN JOINS US ONCE AGAIN. MY, THE WATER'S AT LAKE MEAD, THEY ARE ONLY EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TO RECEDE. WHAT COMES NEXT? >> AUTHORITIES ARE SAYING THAT AS THOSE WATERS CONTINUE TO RECEIVE, PROBABLY FOR THE COMING YEAR, IT IS VERY LIKELY THAT THEY ARE GOING TO FIND ADDITIONAL BODIES. NOW, INVESTIGATIONS INTO THOSE DEATHS, THEY TELL US, OUR ONGOING. BUT OF COURSE, WITH LESS WATER, IT MEANS THAT AT SOME POINT IN THE NEAR FUTURE, NEVADA WILL HAVE TO STOP DRAWING WATER FROM THE LAKE, AND IT MIGHT ALSO IMPERIL THE ELECTRICITY PRODUCTION AT THE HOOVER DAM. LINDSEY. >> SOME DEVASTATING IMPACTS. MATT GUTMAN, OUR THANKS TO YOU. WE HEAD SOUTH NOW TO FLORIDA WHERE THE BATTLE OVER ABORTION ACCESS HAS ONE TEAM THRUSTING TO THE NATIONAL SPOTLIGHT. THIS AFTER A JUDGE DENIED 18 ACCESS TO AN ABORTION, CITING HER LACK OF MATURITY. ABC'S VICTOR AKINJO HAS THIS REPORT. >> TONIGHT, A 16-YEAR-OLD GIRL IS NOW AT THE CENTER OF THE DEBATE OVER ABORTION IN THIS COUNTRY, IN THE WAKE OF THE SUPREME COURT'S DECISION TO OVERTURN ROE V. WADE. SHE IS PLEADING TO GET AN ABORTION. BUT AN APPELLATE COURT, UPHOLDING IT LOWER COURTS RULING, THAT THE GIRL IS NOT SUFFICIENTLY MATURE ENOUGH TO TERMINATE HER PREGNANCY. THE TEEN, REFERRED TO AS JANE DOUGH 20 TO BE IN COURT DOCUMENTS WAS TEN WEEKS PREGNANT. SHE IS DESCRIBED AS LIVING WITH A RELATIVE, AND HAS [INAUDIBLE] SHE IS ASKED THE JUDGE TO WAIVE THE PARENTAL NOTIFICATION, AND CONSENT REQUIREMENTS FOR MINORS, ARGUING SHE IS SUFFICIENTLY MATURE, AND IS NOT READY TO HAVE A BABY. ADDING HER GUARDIAN SUPPORTED HER DECISION. RETIRED FLORIDA JUDGE, GARRETT BEGOTTEN, WAS NOT INVOLVED IN THESE LEGAL PROCEEDINGS. BUT CITED COUNTLESS CASES LIKE THIS OVER HER CAREER. >> IF SHE IS FORCED TO CARRY A CHILD TO TERM THAT SHE DOES NOT FEEL SHE HAS THE EMOTIONAL, PHYSICAL, OR FINANCIAL CAPABILITY TO DO, THAT COULD BE EXTREMELY TRAUMATIZING. >> THE GIRL WHO DOES NOT HAVE A JOB AND IS STUDYING FOR HER GED COULD MAKE HER CASE AGAIN, BUT TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE. FLORIDA REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR RON DESANTIS SIGNED A 15-WEEK ABORTION BAN INTO LAW THIS YEAR. NOW, ONE STATE ATTORNEY SUSPENDED FROM HIS JOB FOR VOWING NOT TO PROSECUTE THOSE WHO VIOLATE THE LAW, DEMOCRAT ANDREW WARREN FILING A LAWSUIT IN FEDERAL COURT AFTER DESANTIS REMOVED HIM FROM OFFICE EARLIER THIS MONTH FOR WHEN THE GOVERNOR CALLS INCOMPETENCE, AND NEGLECT OF DUTY. >> THIS ABOUT THE ILLEGAL SUSPENSION OF THE DULY ELECTED STATE ATTORNEY. THIS IS ABOUT THE GOVERNOR'S ABILITY TO VIOLATE THE LAW. >> VICTOR OQUENDO JOINS US NOW. VICTOR, WE WANT TO GO BACK TO THE TEENAGER FOR A MOMENT. WHAT'S NEXT FOR HER, AND HAS THE GOVERNOR SAID ANYTHING ABOUT HER CASE? >> LINDSEY, NO WORD FROM GOVERNOR DESANTIS, BUT A DISSENTING JUDGE HERE SAYING THAT IF SHE GOES BACK TO COURT AND IS ABLE TO ADEQUATELY ARTICULATE HER REQUEST SHE MAY STILL BE ABLE TO GET A WAIVER FOR AN ABORTION, LINDSEY. >> ALL RIGHT, VICTOR AT CANDO, OR THANKS TO YOU. TONIGHT, 32 MILLION AMERICANS ARE UNDER [INAUDIBLE] EXTREME WEATHER, FLOODING AND ARIZONA, [INAUDIBLE] PEROT MARCELO IS TRACKING ALL OF IT FOR US. HI ROB. >> HEY LINDSEY. YOU KNOW THIS MONSOON SEASON HAS BEEN RELENTLESS. SOME AREAS IN THE SOUTHWEST HAVE RECEIVED OVER 800% OF THEIR NORMAL PRECIPITATION. THE FLOW CONTINUES TONIGHT, AS YOU MENTIONED, WE HAVE A NUMBER OF FLASH FLOOD WARNINGS INSIDE A BIG WATCH FOR MEXICO AND ARIZONA. SAN BERNARDINO A FLASH FLOOD WARNING RIGHT NOW. WE HAVE NEAR FLAGSTAFF AND NEAR SANTA FE, THERE ARE FLASH FLOOD WARNINGS. I THINK THAT IT WILL INCREASE AS WE GO INTO THE WEEKEND, THEY HAVE PUT OUT A MODERATE RISK OF FLASH FLOODING, ESPECIALLY DOWN NEAR TUCSON. SOME OF THESE STORMS ARE GETTING INTO THE NORTHWEST. THEY ONLY STARTED MORE FIRES. WE HAVE DOZENS OF LARGE FIRES THAT ARE ACTIVELY BURNING AND RED FLAG WARNINGS REMAIN UP FOR NORTHERN CALIFORNIA. PARTS OF THE NORTHWEST, MOSTLY BECAUSE OF THE HEAT. THE LONG STRETCH OF HEAT AGAIN WITH EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNINGS IN PARTS OF THE CASCADES, AND EASTERN WASHINGTON. ANOTHER DAY TOMORROW IN PORTLAND THAT WILL GET TO NEARLY 100 DEGREES. IT WILL COOL OFF SOMEWHAT AFTER THAT. BUT CALIFORNIA DOES NOT. THE NEXT THREE DAYS IN WRITING, SACRAMENTO, DOWN TO BAKERSFIELD, TEMPERATURES WILL EXCEED 100 DEGREES. MEANWHILE HERE IN THE NORTHEAST, THE DROUGHT IS ONGOING ACROSS EASTERN NEW ENGLAND. THEN THIS KIND OF SUMMER NOR'EASTER IS SPINNING OFF THE COAST OF MAINE. THEY ARE THE GREATEST RECIPIENTS OF THIS BENEFICIAL RAIN. BUT BOSTON, RHODE ISLAND, AND DOWN THROUGH EASTERN CONNECTICUT AND THE REST OF EASTERN NEW ENGLAND REALLY IS UNDER A CONTINUOUS SEVERE DROUGHT. WE NEED A LOT MORE RAIN THAN WHAT WE ARE GETTING RIGHT NOW, LINDSEY. >> ALL RIGHT, ROB MARCIANO, OUR THANKS TO YOU AS ALWAYS. >> YOU BET. >> WHEN WE COME, BACK AUTHORITIES ARE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT HAPPENED IN THE MOMENTS BEFORE A MAN FILLED TO HIS DEATH WHEN A DRAWBRIDGE OPENED UP AS HE WALKED ACROSS IT. A CONVERSATION WITH ACTRESS ALISON ABOUT HER NEW PROJECT WHERE SHE STARTS AS A MANAGER OF AN ITALIAN RESTAURANT CHAIN WHO GETS SENT TO ITALY WHERE SHE GETS A BIT MORE THAN SHE BARGAINED FOR. UP NEXT, A SOCIAL MEDIA DARLING GONE VIRAL FOR CRACKING COLD CASES FOR FREE. THE FAMILIES, THEY ARE HELPING. >> TONIGHT, AUTHORITIES ARE INVESTIGATING THE MOMENTS LEADING UP TO A MAN WHO FELL TO HIS DEATH FROM A MILWAUKEE DRAWBRIDGE. SURVEILLANCE VIDEO SHOWS A MAN CROSSING IT OUT AS IT IS BEING RAISED WITH HIS WIFE ON THE OTHER SIDE. POLICE SAY HE HELD ON TO THE RAILINGS FOR UP TO TWO MINUTES BEFORE LOSING HIS GRIP. HE FELL TO HIS DEATH, 70 FEET. THE BRIDGE OPERATOR WAS PLACED ON LEAVE, EVEN THOUGH THE BRIDGE WAS RUN REMOTELY FROM A MILE AWAY. NEXT TO A NEW PHENOMENON, CIVILIAN DIVERS CRACKING COLD CASES FOR FREE. THEY ARE CALLED INVENTORS WITH PURPOSE AND THEY HAVE BECOME SOCIAL MEDIA DARLINGS. BUT FOR FAMILIES WHO HAVE ALL BUT GIVEN UP ON FINDING THEIR LOVED ONES, THIS TEAM IS ALSO A LAST HOPE OF SORTS. BOB WOODRUFF HAS MORE. >> THERE IS A HINT OF MAGIC IN THIS FAMILY. TO THE OUTSIDE WORLD, BABY OAKLEY HASN'T A SINGLE CARE, WRAPPED UP IN THE LOVING ARMS OF MOM AND DAD. BUT FOR DESIREE CARPENTER, THE LOVE SHE SHARES WITH A LITTLE OAKLEY IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO GIVE HER BABY GIRL SOMETHING SHE NEVER HAD HERSELF. >> I NEVER GREW UP WITH A MOTHER SO I DID NOT HAVE THAT TO GO OFF OF. I TRIED TO GIVE HER THAT RELATIONSHIP WITH HER MOM THAT I WILL NEVER HAVE WITH MINE. >> ON A WARM, WINDY EVENING IN SEPTEMBER, 23 YEARS AGO, DESIREE'S MOTHER, 19-YEAR-OLD SAMANTHA HOPPER, DROPPED OFF THEN FOUR YEAR OLD DESIREE AT HER GRANDMOTHER DEBBIE'S HOUSE. BEFORE DRIVING OFF WITH HER TWO-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER, COURTNEY. >> I SAT ON MY FRONT PORCH WATCHING THE ROAD. SHE NEVER CAME BACK. >> SAMANTHA DISAPPEARED WITHOUT A TRACE, DESPITE A LENGTHY POLICE INVESTIGATION THAT WENT ON FOR TWO DECADES, THERE WERE NO SIGNS OF HER OR HER YOUNG DAUGHTER, COURTNEY. VANISHED, AND MISSING FOR MORE THAN 23 YEARS. >> I FEEL THAT SO MANY MISSING PERSON REPORTS, EVERY TIME YOU DO THAT, YOU HAVE TO GIVE HER PICTURE. I DO NOT HAVE NO PICTURES LEFT. >> DESPITE THE PAIN, DESPITE THE ANGUISH, SAMANTHA'S CASE TRAGICALLY IS ANYTHING BUT UNIQUE. EVERY YEAR, MORE THAN 600,000 PEOPLE GO MISSING IN THE UNITED STATES. IT HAS BEEN CALLED THE NATIONS SILENT MASS DISASTER, IT TREND THAT PRESENTS AN ALARMING REALITY FOR FAMILIES AND LAW ENFORCEMENT. >> I LOST HOPE. I GOT TO A PLACE WHERE I WAS LIKE, THERE IS NO WAY SHE IS ALIVE. SHE JUST CAN'T BE ALIVE. AND I THINK WHEN I HAD MY DAUGHTER, THAT SEALED IT FOR ME. I WAS LIKE, THERE IS NO WAY. THERE IS NO SCENARIO WHERE I COULD SEE WALKING AWAY FROM MY DAUGHTER, IT ALMOST HURT MORE TO THINK THAT SHE COULD BE ALIVE. >> WHILE HER HOPE MAY HAVE BEEN FLEETING, HER DETERMINATION WAS NOT. UNABLE TO GET ANYTHING CONCRETE FROM LAW ENFORCEMENT, DOES THAT RAISE SEARCH FOR ANSWERS TOOK HER TO AN UNLIKELY PLACE: YOUTUBE. AND A GROUP OF GUYS WITH A BOAT, SOME SONAR, SOME DIVING GEAR, AND IT WILLINGNESS TO CERTAIN PLACES WHERE OTHERS COULD NOT. >> I HAVE A FRIEND, SHE WASN'T A FACEBOOK GROUP WITH ME, SOMEBODY HAD POSTED THAT THERE WAS A DIVER COMING. MY FRIEND SAW IT, TAG ME IN IT AND SAID YOU NEED TO GET IN CONTACT WITH THESE PEOPLE AND SEE IF THEY CAN HELP YOU. >> THEY ARE ADVENTURES WITH PURPOSE. A GOOD TEAM OF VOLUNTEER DIVERS SCOURING THE COUNTRY LOOKING FOR MISSING PERSON COLD CASES. THEY ARE NOT LAW ENFORCEMENT, BUT A COUPLE FRIENDS COMING FROM HUMBLE BEGINNINGS. >> I STARTED A YOUTUBE SERIES CALLED ADVENTURES, AND IN JULY OF 2018. THAT WAS JUST SIMPLY GETTING IN THE WATER. IT WAS OUT OF SIGHT, OUT OF MIND, POPPED CANS AND BOTTLES. >> WHEN DID YOU MAKE THE SHIFT FROM TRYING TO CLEAN SOMETHING FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE LAKE TO SOMEHOW TRYING TO FIND ALL SORTS OF PIECES OF EVIDENCE FROM PREVIOUS CASES. AND FIND HUMAN BODIES. >> IT BECAME A CALLING. WHEN A FAMILY REACHED OUT TO ME IN THE FALL OF 2018, THEY HAD SEEN THESE VIDEOS WE WERE PUTTING UP ON YOUTUBE, FINDING VEHICLES AND PULLING THEM OUT OF THE WATER. I REACHED OUT AND SAID THAT WE BELIEVE THAT WE HAVE A CELL PHONE PING AT THIS VOTE RAMP. CAN YOU COME HELP US BECAUSE NOBODY ELSE IS HELPING US? >> WITH SO MANY FAMILIES FEELING LIKE THERE IS NOBODY TO HELP, JARRED AND DOUG ARE FILLING A CRITICAL NEED, GOING WHERE POLICE AND INVESTIGATORS RARELY HAVE THE TOOLS, TECHNOLOGIES, AND SKILLS TO GO. WHAT IS THE PERCENTAGE OF SUCCESS ON THIS? WHEN YOU START SEARCHING, HOW OFTEN DO YOU GET THE RESULTS THAT YOU WANT? >> FOR THE CASES THAT WE TAKE ON, 15 AND 18% IS WHAT WE ARE CURRENTLY -- >> WE HAVE 18% CHANCE TODAY THAN? >> FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT, I'M SURE THE STATISTICS ARE CLOSE TO A HALF OF A HALF OF A PERCENT OF THEM SOLVING A COLD CASE. >> THEIR ADVENTURE SO FAR ARE MAKING AN IMPACT. THEY HAVE SOLVED 20 COLD CASES AND IN THE PROCESS, HAVE BECOME SOCIAL MEDIA SENSATION'S, WITH MORE THAN 2 MILLION SUBSCRIBERS ON YOUTUBE, RACKING UP MORE THAN 200 MILLION VIEWS. >> TODAY, ON THESE PONDS AND LAKES IN CENTRAL GEORGIA, THEY'RE TRYING TO FIND ANSWERS ABOUT A MISSING FATHER, WHOSE FAMILY SAYS HE VANISHED WITHOUT A TRACE AND HAS NOT BEEN SEEN FOR MONTHS. THEIR WORK IS IN MANY WAYS A DOUBLE EDGED SWORD. A DELICATE BALANCE BETWEEN OFFERING UP HOPE AND SOBERING TRUTH. FAILURE MEANS ANOTHER DAY OF NO ANSWERS FOR THESE GRIEVING FAMILIES. SUCCESS MEANS CONFIRMATION OF THEIR GREATEST FEARS. >> PEOPLE CALL YOU UP, THE FAMILY, THEY CONTACT YOU, WHEN THEY ALMOST KNOW FOR SURE THAT THEY WILL NOT BE FOUND ALIVE. >> THAT'S A TOUGH ONE, YOU KNOW? NORMALLY THEY'RE REACHING OUT TO US BECAUSE THEY HAVE HAD A FRIEND OR A FAMILY MEMBER THAT HAS BEEN OUR SHOW ON YOUTUBE OR FACEBOOK. WE DON'T CHARGE THEM A DIME FOR OUR TIME. SAME THING WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT. WE DON'T SEND THEM A BILL FOR WHAT WE DO EITHER. WE'RE OUT THERE SIDE BY SIDE WITH THEM. >> ON THIS DAY, THEY WOULD NOT FIND THAT SLIM CHANCE OF SUCCESS. NOT EVERY FAMILY GETS AN ANSWER TO THEIR QUESTIONS. NOT EVERY STORY HAS AN ENDING. SOMETIMES, THEY WILL GO YEARS WITHOUT A SLIVER OF TRUTH TO GO OFF OF. SOMETIMES, IN THE SLIMMEST OF CHANCES, AND THOSE MOST WISHFUL OF HOPES, THEY FIND AN ANSWER. >> JACOB HAS A VEHICLE IN THE WATER. WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT THIS VEHICLE IS UNTIL WE DIVE ON IT. I JUST WANT TO ERR CAUTION. PLEASE REMAIN OPTIMISTIC. BUT UNTIL I GET INTO THE WATER -- YES, WE DON'T KNOW. >> IN OCTOBER, 23 YEARS AND ONE MONTH AFTER SHE WENT MISSING, JARRETT AND HIS TEAM FOUND SAMANTHA AND COURTNEY. HER CAR, SITTING IN LESS THAN TEN FEET OF WATER, JUST A FEW MILES FROM HER HOME, EVER SINCE THAT FATEFUL SEPTEMBER NIGHT. >> FOR ME, WHEN I WENT UP ON THE BRIDGE AND SPOKE WITH THE DETECTIVE, WHO WAS ON THIS CASE, IN THAT MOMENT, TALKING TO HIM -- AND HIM PULLING HER PURSE OUT OF THE CAR AND SHOWING IT TO ME, I WAS LIKE, OKAY. THIS IS IT. I DON'T HAVE TO DENY IT ANYMORE. I DON'T HAVE TO TELL MYSELF THAT IT'S NOT HER TO MAKE ME FEEL BETTER. IT'S HER. IT WAS SO PAINFUL. BUT IT WAS ALMOST LIKE A RELIEF. IT WAS LIKE A RELIEF -- SHE DIDN'T LEAVE ME. SHE WOULD'VE NEVER LEFT ME. >> PEOPLE SPEND THEIR LIVES SEARCHING FOR PURPOSE, FOR MEETING -- MEANING. -- BUT SOMETIMES, PURPOSES AND FOUND IN THE THINGS WE DO FOR OURSELVES, BUT THE MOMENTS WE GIVE TO OTHERS, THAT MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE. >> I DON'T HAVE PEACE YET. PEOPLE KEEP TELLING ME, AT LEAST I HAVE CLOSURE. I DON'T FEEL LIKE I HAVE CLOSURE. THERE'S 100 MORE QUESTIONS THAN I HAD YESTERDAY. WOULD I DO HAVE NOW IS I HAVE A PLACE WHERE I CAN TAKE MY DAUGHTER ONE DAY. AND I CAN TAKE HER TO VISIT THEM. AND I THINK FOR ME, OVERTIME, I HOPE THAT I CAN LEARN TO BE OKAY WITH US. >> OUR THANKS TO BOB WOODRUFF FOR THAT. STILL AHEAD, THE DETAILS OF WHAT HAPPENED WITH THE PICTURES OF KOBE BRYANT MOMENTS AFTER HE WAS KILLED. -- TOLD HIM AN ALLIGATOR WAS AT THE FRONT DOOR. WHAT HE DID NEXT. AND LATINOS STREAM MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE. SO MANY OF THE SHOWS WHERE THEY PLAY THE LEAGUE CONTINUE TO GET CANCELED. WE TAKE A LOOK BY THE NUMBERS. FIRST, OUR TWEET OF THE DAY, COURTESY OF OUR COUSINS OVER THERE AT SPORTS CENTER. LEBRON JAMES RESIGNED TO THE LAKERS. FIND OUT FOR HOW MUCH, COMING UP. HERE'S TO EVERYTHING AHEAD. >> WELCOME BACK EVERYONE. MORE LATINOS ARE TURNING TO STREAMING PLATFORMS FOR ENTERTAINMENT. BUT ACCORDING TO NEW RESEARCH, THEY'RE NOT BEING THEMSELVES FULLY REPRESENTED ON SCREEN. LET'S TAKE A LOOK BY THE NUMBERS. 38% OF LATINOS HOMES PAY FOR CABLE OR SATELLITE TELEVISION, WHILE ALSO SUBSCRIBING TO STREAMING SERVICES -- THAT IS COMPARED TO 29% OF THE OVERALL POPULATION, WHICH SUBSCRIBES TO BOTH. ANOTHER 38% OF LATINO SUBSCRIBE ONLY TO STREAMING PLATFORMS LIKE DISNEY PRIZE, HBO MAX -- THAT'S 9% AVERAGE THAN THAT -- DESPITE HIGHER VIEWERSHIP, THERE IS A LACK OF LATINO REPRESENTATION ON SCREEN. BOTH ON STREAMING AND ON THE BIG SCREEN. LATINOS HELD JUST 7.7 OVERALL ACTING ROLES IN FILMS LAST YEAR, DESPITE MAKING UP MORE THAN 90% OF -- WITH SOME 72 FILMS THAT MAJORITY MINORITY CAST RELEASED ON STREAMING IN 2021. BUT ACCORDING TO AXIOS, SOME RECENT STREAMING CANCELLATIONS -- HAVE DRAWN CRITICISM DESPITE A 90 MILLION DOLLAR BUDGET -- RECENTLY CANCELED THE PLANNED RELEASE OF THE FILM BAT GIRL -- AFTER JUST ONE SEASON, HBO CANCELED THE -- THAT HAD RECEIVED CRITICAL ACCLAIM. BOTH PROJECTS WERE REPORTEDLY THE VICTIM OF A SHIFT IN STREAMING STRATEGY -- AND WE STILL HAVE LOTS TO GET TO HERE ON PRIME TONIGHT. -- WHO HE IS ACCUSED OF SHOOTING. HOW TIKTOK IS TRYING TO ADDRESS MISINFORMATION, HEADING INTO THE MIDTERM ELECTIONS. FIRST, A LOOK AT OUR TOP TRENDING STORIES ON ABCNEWS.COM. >> RUDY GIULIANI IS TESTIFYING IN FRONT OF A SPECIAL GRAND JURY. INVESTIGATING -- TO OVERTURN THE 2020 ELECTION RESULTS IN GEORGIA. HIS ATTORNEY SAY THEY HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED THAT HE IS A TARGET OF THE INVESTIGATION AND NOT JUST A WITNESS. >> GIULIANI MOST FAMOUSLY SAT BESIDE LAWMAKERS AND -- WE'RE PRODUCING SUITCASES OF BALLOTS. IT WASN'T TRUE AT ALL. AND THOSE ELECTION WORKERS TILL THE JANUARY SIX COMMITTEE AND WASHINGTON THAT THEY STARTED GETTING DEATH THREATS. >> THE CRUSHING DEFEAT FOR REPRESENTATIVE LIZ CHENEY AND WYOMING TUESDAY. THIS PRIMARY ELECTION IS OVER. BUT NOW, THE REAL WORK BEGINS. >> BUT THE LOSS TO TRUNK -- TRUMP BACKED HARRIET -- HAS BEEN ONE OF THE FORMER PRESIDENTS MOST OUTSPOKEN REPUBLICAN CRITICS. WYOMING -- SHE BECAME THE TRUMP -- SHE WANTS CRITICIZE THE FORMER PRESIDENT, BUT NOW REPEATS THE LIE THAT THE 2020 ELECTION WAS STOLEN. WHEN SHE WON, SHE THANKED HIM. >> WE ARE ALL VERY GRATEFUL TO PRESIDENT TRUMP. >> IN THE MEANTIME, ALASKA, HAS TWO MAJOR RACES. -- WHO VOTED TO CONVICT HIM IN HIS IMPEACHMENT TRIAL, ADVANCING TO THE GENERAL ELECTION -- >> HE APPEARED AND A LOS ANGELES -- THE RAPPER, WHOSE LEGAL NAME IS WRECKING -- WAS CHARGED MONDAY -- HE'S ACCUSED OF FIRING A HANDGUN TWICE AND THE DIRECTION OF A FORMER FRIEND, IDENTIFIED AS RAPPER -- IN HOLLYWOOD LAST NOVEMBER. HE WAS ARRESTED IN APRIL AT LOS ANGELES INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT IN CONNECTION WITH THE INCIDENT. THEY WERE MEMBERS OF THE -- ALSO FILED A CIVIL LAWSUIT AGAINST HIS CHILDHOOD FRIEND AND COLLEAGUE LAST WEEK. >> TESTIMONY CONTINUES AT THE TRIAL OVER PHOTOS TAKEN OFF THE LATE KOBE BRYANT AFTER HIS DEATH. JURORS ON TUESDAY HEARD FROM A SHERIFF'S DEPUTY, WHO SHARED PHOTOS OF THE NBA HALL OF FAMER'S BODY WHILE HE WAS PLAYING CALL OF DUTY AS WELL AS ANOTHER, WHO SHOWED PHOTOS TO A LOCAL BARTENDER. BOTH DEPUTIES DISPLAYED REMORSE. JURORS ALSO HEARD TESTIMONY ABOUT OFFICIALS ALLEGED ATTEMPTS TO KEEP THE SCANDAL FROM REACHING THE PUBLIC AFTER BEING NOTIFIED -- >> WITH A CONSEQUENTIAL MIDTERM ELECTIONS JUST A FEW MONTHS AWAY, TIKTOK ANNOUNCED ITS INITIATIVE TO PROTECT ELECTION INTEGRITY AND FIGHT MISINFORMATION, THE APP IS LAUNCHING AN ELECTION CENTER WHICH WILL GIVE USERS INFORMATION ON HOW AND WHERE TO VOTE FROM THE NATIONAL -- AS WELL AS WHO AND WHAT IS ON VOTERS BALLOTS VIA -- TIKTOK IS ALSO PARTNERING WITH OTHER ORGANIZATIONS TO PROVIDE VOTING INFORMATION FOR DEAF PERSONS, OVERSEAS CITIZENS, STUDENTS, SERVICE MEMBERS, AND PEOPLE WITH PRIOR CONVICTIONS. TIKTOK SAID IT WAS LAUNCHING THE ELECTIONS THAT ARE SIX WEEKS EARLIER THAN IN 2020, AS ONE OF THE IMPROVEMENTS IT HAS TRIED TO MAKE FOR FUTURE ELECTIONS. THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL -- >> THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL CAN BE HECTIC BUT FOR ONE TEXAS FATHER IT WAS MORE THAN HE BARGAINED FOR. A LOCAL RESTAURANT OWNER SAID HE WAS TAKEN HIS CHILDREN TO SCHOOL WHEN HIS DAUGHTER RAN BACK TO HIM AND TOLD HIM AND ALLOCATOR WAS BY THE FRONT DOOR. HE SAID HE THREW A TOWEL OVER THE GATOR AND TOOK HIS CHILDREN TO SCHOOL. WHEN HE CAME HOME, HE SAID HE USED BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU TO WRANGLE THE GATOR, TAPE ITS MOUTH SHUT, AND TIE UP ITS LEGS. HE CALLED LOCAL OFFICIALS FOR HELP ONCE HE SUBDUED THE GATOR, 101 ARRIVED, HE SAID HE LOADED THE GATOR ONTO HIS TRUCK, AND RELEASED IT ONTO A NEARBY POND. >> PRETTY IMPRESSIVE WORK BY THAT THAT. WELCOME BACK, WE ARE LEARNING ABOUT THE CAUSE OF DEATH FOR ACTRESS AND HAITIAN. ACCORDING TO THE MEDICAL EXAMINER'S REPORT, SHE DIED FROM SMOKE INHALATION AND THERMAL INJURIES. ACCORDING TO THAT REPORT, SHE HAD A STONEWALL FRACTURE. HER DEATH WAS RULED AN ACCIDENT. MEANWHILE, A CLEVELAND FEDERAL JUDGE HAS AWARDED HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS WORTH OF DAMAGING -- AND A LAWSUIT AGAINST NATIONAL PHARMACY CHAIN. CVS, WALGREENS, AND WALMART. THE SUIT STANDARD FROM CLAIMS THAT THEY DISTRIBUTED OPIOIDS TO CUSTOMERS THAT CAUSED SEVERE HARM TO COMMUNITIES. 600 AND $50 MILLION ARE GIVEN TO THE COUNTIES TO HELP EASE THE CONTINUED OPIOID CRISIS. THE ATTORNEYS OUTSIDE OF CLEVELAND PUT THE TOTAL PRICE TAG OF THREE BILLION DOLLARS. MANY ONLINE ARE STILL ANNOYED AFTER ELON MUSK CAUSED QUITE A STIR BY TWEETING HE WAS BUYING MANCHESTER UNITED, AND A FEW HOURS LATER SAID IT WAS A JOKE. MANY FANS HAVE BEEN CALLING FOR NEW OWNERS AFTER A DECADE OF SO-CALLED PERFORMANCES, MANY DID NOT FIND IT FUNNY. THE JOE COMES AS A BILLIONAIRE FOCUS FORCES IT -- 44 BILLION DOLLARS. YOU MIGHT RECOGNIZE HER FROM HER HIT SHOWS SUCH AS GLOW, AND MAD MEN, ALISON BREE HAS PRETREAT CHARACTERS WHO ARE USED TO TAKING LIFE BY THE HORNS. OUR PHIL LIPOF HAS SPENT TIME WITH HER TO DISCUSS ROLES -- WHO STRIPPED ITALY WAS NOT LIKE SHE IMAGINED. >> YOU TAKE ALL OF THE TOP MANAGERS TO ITALY! AMBER, PACK YOUR BAGS, YOU ARE GOING TO ITALY! >> WELCOME EVERYONE. I WOULD LIKE TO INTRODUCE OUR CEO, NICK. >> [SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] >> I AM REALLY HAPPY YOU ARE HERE, AMBER. LISTEN, I THINK SOMETHING WEIRD MIGHT BE GOING ON. >> THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME. LET'S START RIGHT IN WITH YOUR CHARACTER, AMBER, SHE MANAGES AN ITALIAN CHAIN RESTAURANT. YOU GET A CHANCE TO GO TO ITALY AND IMMERSE HERSELF. YOU WIND UP GETTING A BIT MORE THAN YOU BARGAINED FOR. TAKE OUR VIEWERS THROUGH WHAT HAPPENS THEN. >> I REALLY DON'T WANT TO GIVE TOO MUCH AWAY BUT YOU ARE EXACTLY RIGHT. WE ARE FOLLOWING MY CHARACTER AMBER, WHO HAS BEEN A MANAGER AT THIS CHAIN FOR NINE YEARS. YOU GET THE SENSE THAT SHE DOES NOT MAKE A LOT OF MOVES IN HER LIFE, YOU KNOW. SHE IS VERY PASSIVE AS A PERSON. SHE KIND OF LETS PEOPLE WALK ALL OVER HER A LITTLE BIT. WHEN SHE GOES ON THIS TRIP SHE IS REALLY EXPECTING MAJOR THINGS TO HAPPEN. SHE IS THINKING SHE MIGHT FALL IN LOVE, AND HAVE A REAL LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE. BUT WHEN SHE GETS THERE, YOU KNOW, THE FIRST LEVEL IT'S JUST LIKE A FACE LEVEL OF DISAPPOINTMENT, AS THE PROGRAM IS A LOT MORE AMERICANIZED THAN IT IS BUILT TO BE. SHE NEEDS A LOT OF INTERESTING CHARACTERS THAT ARE ALSO THERE FOR THIS PROGRAM. BUT SHE ALSO MEETS THE OWNER OF THIS RESTAURANT CHAIN, A RICH, HANDSOME, CHARISMATIC OWNER. AND BEGINS A SORT OF ROMANTIC INTEREST WITH HIM, AND THEN THINGS SORT OF SPIN OUT OF CONTROL. >> YEAH. THE TWIST OF THIS IS GREAT. YOU ARE NOT EXPECTING IT. IT STARTS OUT AS A CASUAL ROM-COM, AND THEN, THAT IS WHAT IS KIND OF NEAT ABOUT IT. AND YOU COWROTE THIS! >> YES. >> WHAT IS IT LIKE TO THAN ACT AND SOMETHING YOU HAVE CO-WRITTEN? >> YOU KNOW, IT IS SO FUN, IT IS SO FULFILLING ON A CREATIVE LEVEL TO START TO RIGHT TO WORK ON SOMETHING REALLY FROM START TO FINISH, FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE IDEA AND THEN WATCH IT COME TO FRUITION WITH AN AMAZING TASK, AND SEEING WHATEVER DIFFERENT PERSON BRINGS TO IT. IT ULTIMATELY FEELS LIKE AN ADVANTAGE, LIKE I AM THE INSIDE MAN HAVING CO-WRITTEN IT AND THEN ACTING AND IT I GET TO BE THIS SORT OF ANCHOR FOR THE TONE OF THE MOVIE. ESPECIALLY IN A CASE LIKE THIS WHERE THE MOVIE IT'S TAKING A TRIP THROUGH DIFFERENT TYPES OF GENRES. AND I GET TO BE LIKE A GUIDING FORCE FOR THE REST OF THE CAST AS I AM REALLY CLUED INTO REALLY WHERE WE WANT THE MOVIE TO GO. IT GIVES ME A REAL HEAD START ON CHARACTER WORK. IT FEELS LIKE I GAVE BIRTH TO THE CHARACTER. AND A BIG PART OF MY PROCESS IS REALLY INFUSING THE STORY WITH MY OWN ANECDOTAL HISTORY. SO THERE IS A FAIR AMOUNT OF PERSPECTIVE THAT I GET TO KIND OF INFUSION TO THE CHARACTER. THEN I ALSO GET TO TAKE A STEP BACK AND SORT OF LEARN THINGS ABOUT MYSELF. >> THAT IS A GREAT COST. IT IS A CAST FILLED WITH A LOT OF FUNNY PEOPLE. A LOT OF PEOPLE WANT TO KNOW IF COMEDIANS ARE REALLY COMEDIANS AND THEIR OFF TIME AS WELL. WHAT WAS IT LIKE SHOOTING WITH ALL OF THEM? >> YOU KNOW, IT ACTUALLY WAS LIKE A REALLY THOUGHTFUL SET. ALL OF THESE ACTORS ARE SO FUNNY. BUT SO TALENTED OF ACTORS, DRAMATICALLY AS WELL, EVERYBODY CAME WITH THEIR OWN VERY UNIQUE ENERGY. SO IT WAS REALLY FUN IN THE SCENES TO WATCH ALL OF THOSE ENERGIES PLAY OFF ONE ANOTHER. AND OFFSET, WE REALLY BONDED AS A GROUP. BECAUSE WE WERE IN A BIT OF A BUBBLE. WE ARE SHOOTING THIS DURING COVID, LAST SUMMER IN ITALY, AND PEOPLE, YOU KNOW, NOBODY COULD REALLY BRING THEIR HUSBANDS OR WIVES OR GIRLFRIENDS OR BOYFRIENDS. WE WERE LIKE THIS TINY CODEPENDENT UNIT. AND WE ENDED UP SHARING A LOT ABOUT OURSELVES EARLY BONDING AS A GROUP. IT WAS VERY SPECIAL. >> IT IS INTERESTING, I THINK PEOPLE IN YOUR OWN, LIFE IN MY LIFE, AND PEOPLE WHO HAD SIMILAR EXPERIENCES. WORKING THROUGH COVID WHERE YOU JUST KIND OF BOND WITH THE PEOPLE. >> IT IS LIKE YOU ARE SO EXCITED JUST TO BE AROUND PEOPLE. >> YOUR CAREER HAS BEEN REALLY IMPRESSIVE AND I THINK THAT IT SPANS SORT OF GENERATIONS OF FANS BECAUSE MY KIDS TOLD ME I HAD TO WATCH BUT JACK HORSEMAN. THEY BROUGHT ME INTO THAT WHOLE WORLD, AND I FOUND YOU THERE, AND ON SEVERAL OTHER THINGS. IT HAS BEEN A GREAT CAREER SO FAR. WHAT IS NEXT FOR YOU? >> THANK YOU SO MUCH. ALSO DURING COVID, I COWROTE ANOTHER FILM WITH MY HUSBAND CALLED SOMEBODY I USED TO KNOW THAT WE MADE FOR AMAZON AND SHOT AT THE END OF THE YEAR LAST YEAR AND JUST FINISHED POST-PRODUCTION ON THAT. THAT IS A ROMANTIC MOVIE AS WELL. AND I JUST SHOT AN ACTION COMEDY IN COLUMBIA. >> YOU ARE SERIOUS? >> YEAH! >> YOU CAN LOOK AROUND WHILE YOU ARE ON THAT SAD TO SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING. >> DEFINITELY. IN THE COLOMBIAN JUNGLE, YOU KNOW, WITH JOHN CENA. IT WAS SO FUN. YOU KNOW, I THANK YOU FOR SAYING WHAT YOU ARE SAYING. I THINK THAT I HAVE BEEN REALLY LUCKY IN MY CAREER. IT HAS BEEN REALLY FUN TO DELVE INTO SOME DIFFERENT GENRES UNDER DIFFERENT KIND OF THINGS LIKE THAT. SO I AM JUST KIND OF, I AM EXCITED TO SEE WHAT THE NEXT THING IS. I HAVE NO IDEA. >> I THINK THAT IS REALLY COOL. I THINK THAT IS HOW YOU FOUND YOURSELF IN THE COLOMBIAN JUNGLE WITH JOHN CENA. BECAUSE YOU TAKE DIFFERENT PROJECTS! WHICH IS GREAT AS AN ACTOR. >> TAKE SOME RISKS, RIGHT. >> DEFINITELY HAS MY ATTENTION BETWEEN THE INTERVIEW AND ALSO THAT BACKDROP. THANKS TO PHIL LIPOF FOR THAT. BYE-BYE BALENCIAGA, THE HOT NEW FASHION HOUSES APPARENTLY COSTCO, WE WILL TAKE A LOOK AT WHY INFLUENCERS ARE FLOCKING TO THE STORE TO PICK OUT TRENDY NEW OUTFITS. >> THE DEVIL MIGHT WEAR PRADA, BUT THE HOTTEST NEW FASHION OUTLET IS COSTCO! >> GROUNDBREAKING. >> THESE BOOTS COULD BE FOUND AT 160 AT OTHER RETAILERS, BUT COSTCO HAS THEM FOR 84 99. >> JENNIFER MALDONADO RUNS THE COSTCO COUTURE TIKTOK ACCOUNT. >> THE RAIN BOOTS, THOSE I AM IN LOS ANGELES, IT DOES NOT RAIN HERE. THEY SOLD OUT LIKE THAT! >> JENNIFER WHO SAYS SHE TAKES TWO TRIPS TO COSTCO PER WEEK DOCUMENTING HER FINDS ONLINE. >> JUST THE OTHER DAY THEY HAD A GIVEN SHE, AND CHLOE BAG FOR SALE. THESE ARE THINGS THAT YOU HAVE TO REALLY SOURCE AND FIND. >> CHECK OUT THIS JACKET FROM TOMMY HILL FIGURE! [INAUDIBLE] WHEN SOMEONE COMPLIMENTS YOUR LOOK AND YOU SAID I GOT IT FROM COSTCO, WHAT IS THE REACTION TYPICALLY LIKE? >> THE REACTION IS ALWAYS THE SAME, THE SAME EXACT THING. WHAT! LIKE, BLANK STARE, AND I AM LIKE YEAH, IT IS COSTCO. >> THE SEARCH TERM COSTCO CLOTHING FINDS HAS RACKED UP 1.7 BILLION VIEWS ON TIKTOK ALONE. >> BEFORE YOU HATE ON COSTCO CLOTHES, WATCH THIS. >> THIS IS YOUR SIGN TO GO TO COSTCO. >> TRY THIS FROM COSTCO. >> TIKTOK IS A FANTASTIC COMMUNITY IF YOU WANT TO GET TRENDS. TRENDS GOING FAST. TIKTOK IS THE WAY TO DO IT. >> SOME THINGS JEN HAS LEARNED FROM THE COSTCO COUTURE COMMUNITY, DIFFERENT COSTCO SCARY DIFFERENT PRODUCTS. SO YOU SHOULD HIT UP DIFFERENT LOCATIONS IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING SPECIFIC. AND SHE SAYS TO GO BEYOND THE BRICK AND MORTAR. >> YOU GO TO COSTCO.COM. THAT IS WHERE ALL OF THE GOOD SECRETS ARE. AND THEY DO NOT HAVE IT ALL THE TIME, YOU HAVE TO KEEP CHECKING. >> SOME HOT TIPS THERE FOR THE FASHION CONSCIOUS, SORT OF THINGS. BEFORE WE GO TONIGHT, THE IMAGE OF THE DAY, OF COURSE IT IS SUMMER, IT IS HOT, TAKE A LOOK AT HOW THEY ARE HANDLING THAT IN ONE CZECH REPUBLIC TOWN NEAR PRAGUE. THIS MEANT PEOPLE TRYING TO COOL OFF NEAR A RIVER, ONE OF MANY THAT ARE BATTLING DROUGHT CONDITIONS. THAT IS OUR SHOW FOR THIS HOUR, BE SURE TO STAY TUNED TO ABC NEWS LIVE FOR MORE CONTEXT AND ANALYSIS OF THE DAY'S TOP STORIES. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR STREAMING WITH US. >> AND COMING UP IN THE NEXT HOUR, WE ARE STAYING ON TOP OF A FEW THINGS. THE TINY DEVICE THAT LED POLICE TO AN ALLEGED [INAUDIBLE] WHO STOLE THOUSANDS OF HEY THERE. I'M LINDSAY DAVIS. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR STREAMING WITH US. WE'RE MONITORING SEVERAL -- APPLE -- ARE BEING CREDITED WITH CATCH AN ALLEGED RUG LUGGAGE THIEF. PEOPLE ARRESTED THE LUGGAGE HANDLER AFTER TRAVELERS REPORTED STOLEN LUGGAGE LAST MONTH WITH AN AIR TAG INSIDE. AUTHORITIES SAY THEY TRACK TO THE BACK TO THE SUSPECT'S HOUSE. THEY RECOVERED MORE THAN $15,000 IN LOST ITEMS WHILE THEY WERE THERE. PLANNED PARENTHOOD'S PLANS TO SPEND A RECORD $50 MILLION, POURING MONEY INTO CONTEST FOR ACCESS TO ABORTION. THE EFFORT BREAKS THE GROUP'S PREVIOUS SPENDING RECORD BACK IN 2020, PLANNED PARENTHOOD SAID IT'S SPENDING WILL HELP REMIND VOTERS IN MULTIPLE STATES WHAT IS AT STAKE IN A BID TO TURN -- AND, AS WE REPORTED LAST NIGHT, NASA IS TAKING A BIG STEP IN ITS EFFORTS TO RETURN TO THE MOON. A ROLLED OUT ITS MASSIVE -- NOT TOO LONG AFTER -- THE YOUNG MAN IS SCHEDULED TO BLAST OFF ON AUGUST 29TH AND ORBIT THE MOON FOR SIX WEEKS -- NASA HOPES TO BRING ASTRONAUTS BACK TO THE MOON LATER THIS DECADE. CONFUSING AND OVERWHELMING. THOSE ARE THE WORDS USED TO DESCRIBE THE CDC'S RESPONSE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, WHICH WERE MADE PUBLIC TODAY IN A SCATHING INTERNAL REVIEW. IT'S A PANDEMIC THAT IS STILL KILLING 400 AMERICANS EVERY DAY. IN RESPONSE TO THE REVIEW, -- COMMITTED TO INSTITUTIONAL AND STRUCTURAL CHANGES. >> TONIGHT, A SCATHING REVIEW OF THE CDC, FINDING THE AGENCY REPEATEDLY BOUGHT ITS PANDEMIC RESPONSE AND FAILED TO MEET THE MOMENT OF CRISIS. THE CDC, LONG UNDER FIRE FOR ITS MASKING AND VACCINES OVER THE LAST TWO YEARS. >> IT'S JUST REALLY CONFUSING. IT'S LIKE THIS PATCHWORK OF DIFFERENT RULES. >> IT'S CONTRADICTING. IT'S A LOT OF THINGS GOING ON. DON'T DO THIS, DON'T DO THAT. AND YOU HAVE TO LISTEN TO BOTH. >> BUT THE CDC'S OWN DIRECTOR, ROCHELLE WALENSKY, CALLING FOR THE INTERNALLY INITIATED REVIEW. STUDYING THE CDC'S -- HANDLING OF THE PANDEMIC DURING BOTH THIS AND THE PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION. THE REVIEW FOUND THE CDC'S COVID RECOMMENDATIONS CONFUSING AND OVERWHELMING AND IT'S WEBSITE NOT EASY TO NAVIGATE. DOCTOR WALENSKY, VOWING A MAJOR OVERHAUL OF THE AGENCY. SHE IS ALSO CALLING FOR INTERNAL STAFFING CHANGES AND SHARING INFORMATION FASTER AND PLAIN LANGUAGE EASY TO UNDERSTAND. THIS COMES AS MILLIONS OF AMERICANS MIGHT SOON BE ABLE TO GET THE NEW COVID BOOSTER, TAILORED TO TARGET THE ORIGINAL COVID STRAIN AND THE OMICRON, BA. 4, AND BA. 5 SUBVARIANTS. WHITE HOUSE COVID COORDINATOR, DOCTOR ASHISH JHA, SAYING THOSE REVAMPED SHOTS COULD -- BE OUT IN THREE WEEKS. IF THE FDA AND CDC BOTH GET THE GREENLIGHT. >> THESE ARE SUBSTANTIAL UPGRADES IN OUR VACCINES AND THOSE VACCINES ARE COMING VERY SOON. >> THOSE BOOSTERS, EXPECTED TO BE FOR THOSE WHO ARE 12 YEARS AND OLDER FOR PFIZER. AND 18 YEARS AND OLDER FOR MODERNA, WITH AN EXPECTATION OF THE NEW BOOSTERS FOR YOUNGER CHILDREN TO FOLLOW. >> -- THE DOCTOR SAID THOSE NEW BOOSTERS COULD BE AVAILABLE IN JUST THREE WEEKS. GIVE US THE REALITY CHECK. DO HEALTH OFFICIALS THINK THAT IS POSSIBLE? >> LINSEY, THAT IS THE BIG QUESTION. THE FDA IS EXPECTED TO GIVE ITS GREENLIGHT IN THE COMING WEEKS. THE CDC ADVISORY PANEL WILL MEET, AND THE CDC DIRECTORS ARE EXPECTED TO SIGN OFF SHORTLY AFTER THAT. OFFICIALS DO BELIEVE THAT THESE NEW BOOSTERS WILL ROLL OUT AS EARLY AS SEPTEMBER. >> ALL RIGHT. RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER. OUR THANKS TO YOU. RUDY GIULIANI APPEARED UNDER OATH BEFORE A SPECIAL GRAND JURY IN ATLANTA TODAY. PROSECUTORS HAVE -- TOLD THE FORMER NEW YORK MAYOR AND ATTORNEY TO FORMER PRESIDENT TRUMP THAT HE IS A TARGET OF THE CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION INTO POTENTIAL CRIMINAL MEDDLING IN THE 2020 GENERAL ELECTION IN GEORGIA. -- >> WHEN YOU MET WITH GEORGIA LAWMAKERS, DID YOU LIE TO THEM? >> THIS WAS NOT A TRIP THAT RUDY GIULIANI WANTED TO MAKE. THE MAN ONCE CALLED AMERICA'S MAYOR, HAS DEFINED HIS REPUTATION WITH LIES ABOUT THE 2020 ELECTION. HE WAS PUT UNDER OATH TODAY IN THE COURTHOUSE, WHERE HE IS SUSPECTED OF TRYING TO HELP STEAL THE VOTE. HE WAS CAUGHT HERE BY A SPECIAL -- GRAND JURY INVESTIGATING CLAIMS THAT FORMER PRESIDENT TRUMP AND HIS FRIENDS TRY TO CHANGE THE ELECTION RESULT IN GEORGIA SO THAT TRUMP COULD WIN. AND THERE IS TAPE. WHILE TESTIFYING BEFORE STATE LAWMAKERS, HE MADE FALSE CLAIMS ABOUT ELECTION FRAUD, INCLUDING COMMENTS THAT DID NOT SIT WELL WITH BLACK ELECTION WORKERS. >> IT LOOKS LIKE THEY'RE PASSING OUT DOPE, NOT BALLOTS. IT IS QUITE CLEAR THEY'RE STEALING VOTES. >> HE FAMOUSLY CLAIMED THAT THIS VIDEO SHOWED FULTON COUNTY ELECTION WORKERS PRODUCING SUITCASES OF ILLEGAL BALLOTS. THOSE SAME ELECTION WORKERS TOLD THE JANUARY 6TH COMMITTEE THAT PEOPLE STARTED THREATENING TO KILL THEM. THIS COULD LEAD TO A REPORT. IT WOULD TAKE ANOTHER -- GRAND JURY TO DECIDE IF ANYONE FACES CHARGES. >> -- JUST REMIND US WHO ELSE COULD BE CALLED TO TESTIFY IN THIS PROBE? >> U.S. SENATOR LINDSEY GRAHAM HAS BEEN TOLD HE NEEDS TO SHOW UP IN GEORGIA AND TESTIFY. HE IS FIGHTING THAT CALL FOR AN APPEARANCE. THE GOVERNOR OF GEORGIA HAS ALSO BEEN TOLD THAT HE NEEDS TO APPEAR TONIGHT. HE IS ANNOUNCING THAT HE IS FIGHTING THIS APPEARANCE AND THEN, OF COURSE, THERE'S THE PERSON AT THE CENTER OF ALL OF THIS, AND THAT IS THE FORMER PRESIDENT, DONALD TRUMP, WHO COULD BE CALLED TO TESTIFY IN GEORGIA. >> WE WILL SEE HOW IT ALL PLAYS OUT. STEVE, OUR THANKS TO YOU AS ALWAYS. FOR MORE ON THIS, WE'RE JOINED NOW BY ABC NEWS CONTRIBUTOR -- A FORMER PROSECUTOR -- FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK. THANK YOU FOR BEING WITH US. WE SAW RUDY GIULIANI APPEAR TODAY BEFORE THAT GRAND JURY IN ATLANTA. WHAT IS THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THIS ACTION, FOR HIM AND JUST IN GENERAL? >> FOR HIM, IT'S HIGHLY SIGNIFICANT. NOBODY WANTS TO BE TOLD THAT THEY ARE THE TARGET OF A CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION. LAW ENFORCEMENT USUALLY PUTS PEOPLE IN THREE BUCKETS. YOU'RE EITHER A TARGET, A SUBJECT, OR A WITNESS. AND EVERYBODY WANTS TO BE A WITNESS. >> AND COURT IS EXPECTED TO DECIDE TOMORROW, WHETHER OR NOT TO MAKE THAT FULL AFFIDAVIT PUBLIC WITH REGARD TO THE RAID ON MAR-A-LAGO. WHAT IS THE SIGNIFICANCE ON THAT? WE KNOW THE DOJ HAS PUSHBACK ON THAT. WHY? >> THERE WILL BE AN ORAL ARGUMENT ABOUT WHETHER THE AFFIDAVIT, THE DOCUMENT THAT SUPPORTS THE SEARCH WARRANT ON TRUMP'S ESTATE, IS GOING TO BE UNSEALED. THERE WILL BE AN ARGUMENT ABOUT IT. YOU ARE RIGHT. DOJ HAS PUT FORTH A VERY STRENUOUS ARGUMENT, AND A GOOD ONE, THAT THAT AFFIDAVIT SHOULD NOT BE UNSEALED. MY BET IS THE JUDGE WILL DEFER TO DOJ. JUDGES AND COURTS USUALLY DEFER TO LAW ENFORCEMENT. WHEN THEY SAY LISTEN, THIS DOCUMENT IS GOING TO REALLY MESS UP OUR CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION, NO COURT IS GOING TO OPPOSE THAT. SO, IT WILL REMAIN SEALED. >> WHAT IS THE FORMER PRESIDENT'S INTEREST IN MAKING SURE THAT IT IS RELEASED? IS THIS PURELY POLITICAL? >> IT'S HARD TO SAY. ONE WAY OR THE OTHER. ACTUALLY, MY VIEW IS, HE REALLY SHOULD NOT HAVE AN INTEREST IN HAVING THIS RELEASED. IT COULD END UP THAT NO INDICTMENT EVER COMES. NO CHARGES EVER COME. AND THE PUBLIC IS GOING TO HAVE SOMETHING VERY DETAILED ABOUT WHAT'S POTENTIAL CHARGES COULD HAVE BEEN MADE. >> WE ALSO LEARNED THIS WEEK THAT FORMER PRESIDENT TRUMP'S TOP LAWYERS HAD BEEN INVESTIGATED OR INTERVIEWED WITH REGARD TO THAT RAID. WHAT IS THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THAT? >> I THINK THAT JUST SHOWS THAT DOJ REALLY DOTTED ALL ITS EYES AND CROSSED ALL ITS T'S WHEN IT LOOKED INTO TRYING TO GET A SEARCH WARRANT. OF COURSE, YOU WILL TALK TO THE PEOPLE CLOSEST TO THE FORMER PRESIDENT. SO, IT MAKES SENSE THAT THEY SPOKE WITH THESE ADVISERS, CLOSE ADVISERS, TO THE FORMER PRESIDENT, IN SEEKING WHETHER THEY SHOULD GET A SEARCH WARRANT. >> FOR PEOPLE AT HOME WHO REALLY DON'T KNOW THE INS AND OUTS AS YOU DO, LEGALLY, WHO ARE SAYING WHAT, THEY JUST INVADED HIS HOUSE AND HIS PROPERTY AND TOOK HIS PERSONAL THINGS, HOW CUSTOMARY IS IT, WITH THE EXCEPTION THAT IN THIS CASE, IT INVOLVED A FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES? >> SEARCH WARRANTS ARE SOUGHT AND EXECUTED IN THIS COUNTRY EVERY DAY. THERE ARE GUIDEPOSTS THAT PROSECUTORS, AGENTS, AND JUDGES HAVE TO USE BEFORE THEY AUTHORIZE A SEARCH WARRANT. THIS HAPPENS. THIS IS NORMAL. IF THERE IS A CRIME THAT LAW ENFORCEMENT THINKS IS BEING COMMITTED AND THEY NEED EVIDENCE OF THAT CRIME AND THEY THINK EVIDENCE OF THAT CRIME IS SOMEWHERE, THEY WILL SEEK A SEARCH WARRANT. >> AND BASED ON WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE WORKS, YOU WOULD SAY THAT THEY PROBABLY DOTTED EVERY I TWICE, CROSSED EVERY T TWICE, BECAUSE THEY KNEW, THEY HAD TO KNOW, THAT THEY WOULD GET PUSHBACK PUBLICLY, IF NOT EVEN BEYOND THAT? >> ABSOLUTELY. THIS IS NOT SOMETHING THAT I THINK ANY PROSECUTOR WOULD EVER TAKE LIGHTLY. AND THE AGENT INVOLVED, ANY JUDGE INVOLVED -- EVERYBODY WANTS TO MAKE SURE THAT THIS IS DONE IN THE RIGHT WAY. AND THAT THEY ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO DO IT BEFORE DOING IT. >> THERE IS LIKELY SOME THERE THERE. [LAUGHS] FORMER FEDERAL PROSECUTOR -- THANK YOU. AFTER LOSING HER HIGH PROFILE HOUSE RACE, -- TONIGHT, REPUBLICAN -- MAY HAVE HER EYES SET ON A DIFFERENT HOUSE, THE WHITE HOUSE. SHE WARNED OF TRUMP'S LIES. IN HER CONCESSION SPEECH, SHE SAID THE REAL WORK BEGINS. -- DONALD TRUMP VOWED TO TAKE DOWN LIZ CHENEY AND HE DID. HIS CANDIDATE IN WYOMING, TROUNCING HER. >> FOR CHENEY, IT IS NOW FULL SPEED AHEAD ON HER NEXT PHASE OF HER MISSION ON DENYING TRUMP 'S RETURN TO POWER. SHE DID WHAT TRUMP HAS NEVER DONE, ADMIT SHE LOST. >> TONIGHT, HARRIET HAGEMAN HAS RECEIVED THE MOST VOTES IN THIS PRIMARY, SHE WON. I CALLED HER TO CONCEDE THE RACE. THIS PRIMARY ELECTION IS OVER. BUT NOW THE REAL WORK BEGINS. [APPLAUSE] >> SHE ANNOUNCED TODAY SHE HAD SET UP A NEW POLITICAL ORGANIZATION, NOT JUST TO CHALLENGE TRUMP, BUT ALSO ANY CANDIDATES WHO DENY THE TRUTH ABOUT THE 2020 ELECTION. IT IS A MOVE THAT PITS ARE AGAINST SOME OF THE LEADING PIT FIGURES IN HER OWN REPUBLICAN PARTY. >> NO AMERICAN SHOULD SUPPORT ELECTION DENIERS FOR ANY POSITION OF GENUINE RESPONSIBILITY, WHERE THEIR REFUSAL TO FOLLOW THE RULE OF LAW WILL CORRUPT OUR FUTURE. >> WE WERE WINNING EVERYTHING. >> SHE ISN'T JUST CALLING OUT TRUMP'S LIES ABOUT THE ELECTION, SHE ACCUSED HIM OF SOWING THE SEEDS OF MORE JANUARY 6TH LIKE VIOLENCE WITH HIS ATTACKS ON FEDERAL AGENTS AFTER THE FBI SEARCHED HIS MAR-A-LAGO HOME. SHE SINGLED OUT HIS TERM -- BASELESS CLAIM THAT AGENTS PLANTED EVIDENCE. >> THIS IS YET ANOTHER INSIDIOUS LIE. DONALD TRUMP KNOWS THAT VOICING THESE CONSPIRACIES WILL PROVOKE VIOLENCE AND THREATS OF VIOLENCE. IT IS ENTIRELY FORESEEABLE THAT THE VIOLENCE WILL ESCALATE FURTHER. YET, HE AND OTHERS CONTINUE, PURPOSEFULLY, TO FEED THE DANGER. >> TODAY, CHENEY'S DIRE WARNINGS TO REPUBLICANS WAS ECHOED BY FORMER VICE PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE. >> THESE ATTACKS ON THE FBI MUST STOP. CALLS TO DEFUND THE FBI ARE JUST AS WRONG AS CALLS TO DEFUND THE POLICE. >> THE FORMER VICE PRESIDENT MAKING SOME NEWS TODAY AS WELL ABOUT THE JANUARY 6TH COMMITTEE. >> HE WAS ASKED IF YOU WOULD BE WILLING TO TESTIFY BEFORE THE COMMITTEE. AND HE SAID THAT HE WOULD CONSIDER IT. HE CERTAINLY DID MAKE A -- DID NOT COMMITMENT THAT HE WOULD DO IT. BUT HE SUGGESTED THAT HE WAS OPEN, IF HE WAS ASKED, IF HE WAS INVITED BY THE COMMITTEE TO TESTIFY, TO DO SO. THE COMMITTEE HAS NOT EXTENDED THAT REQUEST YET. ALTHOUGH, AS YOU KNOW, SEVERAL OF FORMER VICE PRESIDENT PENCE'S TOP AIDES HAVE TESTIFIED BEFORE THE COMMITTEE. >> AND JOHN, LIZ CHENEY, VICE CHAIR OF THAT COMMITTEE, IS SHE CONTEMPLATING HER NEXT MOVE, WHICH COULD INCLUDE A RUN FOR PRESIDENT, EVEN THOUGH SHE DID LOSE HER PRIMARY BY 37 POINTS, -- IS THERE A PATH FORWARD FOR HER? >> I MEAN, IT IS REALLY HARD TO SEE A PATH FOR LIZ CHENEY IN A PARTY WHERE DONALD TRUMP REMAINS THE MOST POPULAR FIGURE BY FAR AMONG THE PARTIES RANK AND FILE VOTERS, BUT LOOK WHERE WE ARE NOW, LIZ CHENEY IS THE MOST HIGH-PROFILE, THE MOST OUTSPOKEN CRITIC OF DONALD TRUMP IN AMERICA. SHE SEES THAT AS A MOVEMENT. A BATTLE INSIDE THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AND OUTSIDE THE PARTY. I WOULDN'T RULE ANYTHING OUT FOR LIZ CHENEY. >> WE WILL SEE HOW MANY FOLLOWERS SHE GETS. JONATHAN CARL, OUR THANKS TO YOU AS ALWAYS. >> THANK YOU. >> WE SHIFT NOW TO THE HORRIFYING STABBING OF FAMED OF SALMAN RUSHDIE. THE SUSPECT GAVE HIS FIRST INTERVIEW AND ADMITTED WHAT HE WAS MOST SURPRISED BY. EVA PILGRIM HAS MORE -- ON THE INTERVIEW AND THE QUESTION SO MANY ARE WONDERING -- WAS HE INSPIRED BY THE IRANIAN -- 1989 EDICT, CALLING FOR SALMAN RUSHDIE'S THE DEATH? >> TONIGHT, FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE HE WAS SEEN ATTACKING FAMED AUTHOR SALMAN RUSHDIE, HADI MATAR IS TALKING, TELLING THE NEW YORK POST, HE THOUGHT HE KILLED HIM. SAYING, QUOTE, WHEN I HEARD HE SURVIVED, I WAS SURPRISED. -- WAS SET TO GIVE A TALK AT THE CHAUTAUQUA INSTITUTION IN WESTERN NEW YORK, WHEN MATAR RUSHED THE STAGE, ALLEGEDLY STASHING HIM MORE THAN TEN TIMES. HIS OWN MOTHER, ALLEGEDLY DECIDING HIM. -- AT LEAST ONE IRANIAN PAPER CALLED IT DIVINE REVENGE. HADI MATAR DENIED BEING IN CONTACT WITH IRAN AND WOULD NOT SAY IF HE WAS INSPIRED BY THE CALL FOR -- BUT HE SAID, I RESPECT HIM. I THINK HE'S A GREAT PERSON. WHILE HE ADMITTED HE ONLY READ A COUPLE PAGES OF THE BOOK, HE DID SAY HE WATCHED HIS LECTURES ONLINE AND ACCUSED THE 75 YEAR OLD OF BEING SOMEONE WHO ATTACKED ISLAM. >> OUR THANKS TO EVA FOR THAT. NOW, A FIFTH SET OF SKELETAL REMAINS HAVE BEEN RECOVERED. THE DISCOVERY COMES AS DROUGHT CONDITIONS HAVE CALLED THE -- NOW DRAWING UP, REVEALING SOME DARK REALITIES. CHIEF -- THE EVER RECEIVING WATERS OF LAKE MEAD REVEALING YET ANOTHER GRIM FIND. PARK RANGERS AND A POLICE DIVE TEAM RECOVERING A SET OF HUMAN REMAINS ON TUESDAY. >> THEY HAVE BEEN FINDING BODIES EVERY WEEK OR SO. IT HAS BEEN KIND OF CRAZY. >> THESE ARE THE FIFTH HUMAN REMAINS TO BE FOUND IN THE LAKES RECEDING WATERS SINCE MAY. SOME OF THE REMAINS FROM EARLIER THIS SUMMER WERE FOUND IN A BARREL. WITH AUTHORITIES BELIEVE THE VICTIM LIKELY DIED OF A GUNSHOT WOUND, 40 OR 50 YEARS AGO. THEY'RE INVESTIGATING IT AS A HOMICIDE. AS ALARMING AS THESE FINDINGS ARE, IT REVEALS SOMETHING ELSE. THE CLIMATE CRISIS. THE LAKE OF VITAL SOURCE OF WATER FOR MORE THAN 25 MILLION PEOPLE ACROSS SEVERAL STATES, AND MEXICO NOW SETTING HISTORICAL RECORDS. AND FOR MORE THAN A YEAR, WE HAVE BEEN REPORTING THE DRASTIC CHANGES TO LAKE MEAD. DECADES AGO THE WATER LEVEL HERE AT LAKE MEAD WAS SO HIGH THAT THERE WERE ACTUALLY WORRIED IT WOULD LAP OVER THE HOOVER DAM. BUT TONIGHT, LAKE MEAD IS JUST 27% FULL. -- >> BUT TONIGHT, LAKE MEAD IS JUST 27% FULL. MORE THAN 70% OF THE WESTERN U.S. EXPERIENCING DROUGHT -- >> WE KNOW THOSE LEVELS ARE EXPECTED TO CONTINUE RECEDING FOR THE NEXT YEAR. OUR THANKS TO MATT GUTMAN. STILL TO COME, THE EUROPEAN CITY INUNDATED WITH EXTREME WEATHER. PLUS, WHY MORE BARS ARE >> WELCOME BACK. WE ARE TRACKING SEVERAL HEADLINES AROUND THE WORLD. 16 TONS OF DRUGS SEIZED BY PERUVIAN AUTHORITIES WENT UP IN FLAMES. ACCORDING TO AUTHORITIES, THAT DRUGS INCLUDED COCAINE, MARIJUANA, AND VARIOUS OTHER CHEMICAL SUBSTANCES IN DIFFERENT STAGES OF PRODUCTION. THE UNITED NATIONS HAVE REPORTED THAT -- FOR THE TOP COCOA AND COCAINE PRODUCERS. LOOK AT THIS HAILSTORM, LASHING A HOSPITAL ENTRANCE IN FRANCE. THIS IS ALSO BEING FELT IN PARIS WHERE STREETS WERE FLOODED AND RAINWATER WENT DOWN STAIRWELLS. -- AFTER THE RAGING WILDFIRES TORE THROUGH THOUSANDS OF ACRES. TEAMS OF AND IN ASIANS CLIMBED OVER EACH OTHER TO REACH PRICES AT THE TOP OF SLIPPERY TREE TRUNKS IN A COMPETITION HELD TO CELEBRATE THE COUNTRY'S INDEPENDENCE DAY. THIS IS A FIRST EVENT SINCE INDONESIA SUSPENDED PUBLIC EVENTS FOR CROWDING IN THE SPREAD OF COVID-19. THE COUNTRY CELEBRATE 77 YEARS OF INDEPENDENCE FROM DUTCH RULE. LAST TWO YEARS HAVE FORCED MANY OF US TO TAKE STOCK OF OUR DRINKING HABITS. IF YOU ARE STARTING TO CUT BACK, IT MIGHT BE PART OF THE GROWING SOBER CURIOUS MOVEMENT. BUT WHAT'S JUST IS SOBER CURIOUS, AND HOW ARE BIG NAMES GETTING INVOLVED? MIREYA VILLAREAL TAKES A LOOK AT THE MIND SPACE OF THIS SWEEPING TREND. >> OF ALL OF THE THINGS TEXAS CAN CLAIM, SUBTLETY IS NOT ONE OF THEM. >> I DON'T KNOW. I MEAN, I MIGHT BE ABLE TO GO TO A BAR WITH YOU. >> WELCOME TO AUSTIN, HOME OF BIG FOOTBALL, BIG BOOTS AND OF COURSE BIG PARTIES! AND YOU WOULD BE HARD-PRESSED TO FIND A PLACE THAT IS NOT A BAR. ON FRIDAY NIGHT, JUST A FEW BLOCKS FROM DOWNTOWN, SAM IS BARR IS JUST AS BUSY. 30 MINUTES AFTER OPENING. BUT THE COCKTAILS MADE HERE HAVE NO ALCOHOL. >> PEOPLE WILL JUST BE BAR HOPPING, AND THEY WILL JUST COME THROUGH THE DOOR. AND WHEN THEY WALK IN, IMMEDIATELY, THEY KNOW THAT SOMETHING IS NOT THE SAME. >> IS IT THAT MOMENT? >> IT'S LIKE, THEY LOOK AROUND, THEY HEAR MUSIC, THEY SEE PEOPLE ARE LAUGHING, DRINKS ARE BEING CLINKED AROUND. SOMETHING IS DIFFERENT. AND IT IS THE ENERGY. >> A FIRST OF ITS KIND IN TEXAS, THIS BAR IS FUELED BY A GROWING MOVEMENT KNOWN AS SOBER CURIOUS. IT MEANS ASKING YOURSELF IF BEING SERVED ALCOHOL IS SERVING YOU. THE EXPRESSION COINED BY AUTHOR RUBY WARRINGTON IN 2016. >> WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT QUESTIONING YOUR DRINKING, WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? >> PERHAPS WHEN IT CAME TO DRINKING, IT WAS NOT QUITE AS BLACK AND WHITE AS YOU ARE A NORMAL DRINKER, OR YOU ARE AN ALCOHOLIC. >> SHE QUICKLY DISCOVERED SHE WAS NOT ALONE. PRE-PANDEMIC, SHE HOSTED SOBER CURIOUS EVENTS WITH HUNDREDS AND ATTENDANCE, AND ROPED TO BEST SELLING BOOKS ABOUT GIVING OUT BOOZE. >> [INAUDIBLE] OR NOT BE AS FUN. FRAMING IT AS, COULD MY LIFE BE BETTER WITHOUT ALCOHOL? IT ACTUALLY OPENS THE DOOR TO ALL SORTS OF POSSIBILITIES. >> IN THE EARLY DAYS OF THE PANDEMIC WE ALL SAW THE HEADLINES, AND THE TIKTOK'S. DRINKING IN LOCKDOWN, A 2021 STUDY PUBLISHED IN JAMA FOUND THAT THE FREQUENCY OF ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION INCREASED 14% FROM THE PREVIOUS YEAR. FOR WOMEN, BINGE DRINKING SURGED 41%. >> A LOT OF PEOPLE GOT TO A POINT WHERE THEY WERE ACTUALLY STARTING TO QUESTION THEIR DRINKING. >> IT IS A POPULAR ENTRY POINT, INCLUDING FOR OUR OWN DOCTOR JAN ASHTON. >> YOU ARE HAVING A DRY -- >> ONCE AND AGAIN, P.J. AND I ARE DOING DRY JANUARY, THEY FUNCTION BETTER, THEY ARE DOING BETTER, THEY'VE DONE THIS EXPERIMENT THE THEMSELVES AND THEY HAVE FOUND POSITIVE RESULTS. THAT IS WHAT LIFE IS ABOUT. >> THEY'RE GROWING NUMBER OF PEOPLE DIPPING THEIR TOES INTO THE SOBER CURIOUS POOL IS PUSHING THE BEVERAGE INDUSTRY TO MAKE ROOM FOR NEWBIES. IN FACT, ALCOHOL FREE PRODUCT SALES SHUT UP 33% IN 2021 ACCORDING TO NIELSEN IQ. EVEN DEDICATED SHOPS OPENING UP. BIG NAME CELEBRITIES LIKE KATY PERRY, BLAKE LIVELY, AND MACKLEMORE CASHING IN BY CREATING THEIR OWN NON ALCOHOLIC DRINKS. SUPERMODEL BELLA HEADED TEAMING UP WITH A COMPANY, AS A PART OF A WHOLE NEW CLASS OF SO-CALLED ADULT FUNCTIONAL BEVERAGES. THIS DIETARY SUPPLEMENT, A CONCOCTION OF INGREDIENTS LIKE CAFFEINE, AND VITAMIN B SIX. >> I LOOK TO HERBS, I LOOK TO MEDICINE, AND I LOOK FOR STRESS MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUES. >> SHE SAYS THE SUCCESS SPEAKS TO SOMETHING GREATER, A GENERATIONAL TREND. >> JEN Z IS DUBBED THE SOBER GENERATION. THEY JUST DIDN'T PICK UP DRINKING. THEY DON'T EVEN HAVE THE SAME QUALMS THAT ME AND MY FRIENDS DO ABOUT, OKAY, ONE IS A GOOD TIME TO STOP DRINKING, HOW AM I GOING TO DO THIS, AND PLANNING AROUND IT. THEY ARE JUST LIKE, IT IS PRESUPPOSED THAT EVERYTHING THEY PUT IN THEIR BODIES SHOULD BE GOOD AND EUPHORIC. >> IT IS BASED IN AUSTIN, ONE OF THE MANY OPTIONS STOP BEHIND CHRIS'S BAR WHERE HE SHOWS US HIS SIGNATURE NON ALCOHOLIC COCKTAIL. >> HERE YOU GO. >> I CAN SEE WHY PEOPLE COME HERE.
