month of july and for a pg rated film. "the lion king" is the second highest behind these guys. >> this is the fight of our lives. >> this is going to work, steve. >> "avengers" passed "avitar." disney now owns five of the top ten highest grossing films of the year. >> saw "lion king," loved it, highly recommend it. >> thanks for joining us, have a great rest of your monday. for our u.s. viewers, "early start" continues right now. the biggest protests yet expected today. the governor of puerto rico will not seek another term, but many are demanding he leave sooner. >> the report presents very substantial evidence that the president is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors. >> democrats are raising the

will not run for re-election next year. >> translator: i have listened to every puerto rican and i listened to you today. i've made mistakes and i apologize. i admit that apologizing is not enough. only my work will help restore the confidence of these sectors and lead to a true reconciliation. >> another big protest effort today. rossello is resigning as president of the new progressive party. protestors are not in a mood to wait. >> many puerto ricans have been calling for him to step down entirely after a leak of homophobic chat messages. the government corruption is undermining his efforts. cnn's nick peyton walsh in san juan with the latest. >> reporter: dave, christine, a bizarre statement from governor rossello. he stepped forward on facebook
on 5:45 the day before a massive protest against him on monday where organizers hope they'll get a million people out on the streets and say he is not resigning. there was a minor concession in this facebook broadcast in which he said he was not going to be contesting the elections next year. while in all honesty, he was vef unlike is digging in his heels. the reaction was, listen, this man has got to get out. one of the key goals is to lock down a major expressway into san juan. special government offices are closed. the justice department is telling local employees still to come into work but i think there's a real sense that governor rossello is blind to the calls and even the message, a blink from his press
secretary. it hasn't changed his mind. will this change his mind? we'll have to see. >> protests expected today. thank you so much for that. dramatic new audio capturing communications between iranian and british ships in the persian gulf. moments before the iranians seize the british tanker. >> if you obey, you will be save. if you obey, you will be save. alter your tours. they said the iranian revolutionary guard crew had no business telling them what to do. >> i reiterate that as you are conducting transit passage in a recognized international strait, under international law your passage must not be immarred. >> it detained the british
worker though. matthew chance is in the u.a.e. along the strait with the latest. there's the ship and new reporting in the last hour about iranians claiming to have seized cia agents. telling us more. >> reporter: yeah, the weather is absolutely scalding here. 111 degrees here today in this coastal area, but the tensions are also getting hotter and hotter as well. that's the latest development that you just mentioned there. overnight, the iranian authorities saying that they have arrested 17 people, that they have accused of spying for the c.i.a. others will be treated more lenient bely if they confess to their crimes and cooperate with iranian
authorities. as the united states tries to cast iran as the malign player in this region. this is possibly messaging by the iranian government to say, look, united states is being provocative in this region as well. the foreign minister has been saying on public platforms as well, saying that the united states is attempting to draw brittain into a broader conflict with iran. that's a reference to this growing problem, growing british dispute. the oil tanker was seized on friday. it was broadcast on iranian state television. the radio broadcasts which show that the iranians and the british navy in a sort of confrontation over the airways, there's going to be robust action, british officials say, in response to this. what that entails is not clear.
high level meetings underway. there could be sanctions and details discussed to protect international shipping. brittain has deployed another warship. it says it wants to keep this a diplomatic matter and is not looking for a military solution. with the mounting tensions you can see how an incident could spark off something broader, wider and much more dangerous. >> seemingly every day a new escalation hard to see a path that leads to sanctions relief. time will tell. matthew chance live for us near the strait. thank you. back here, for democrats who want to launch impeachment proceedings against the president, this could be a make or break week. robert mueller testifies later this week. democrats have struggled to use the report to make their case. mueller made it clear charging president trump was never an option but he refused to
exonerate him. >> if we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so. >> mueller will appear before the house intel and judiciary committees. here's what the two men are hoping to achieve. >> the report presents very substantial evidence that the president is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors and we have to present -- or led that haven't had an opportunity to read 245. it's a dry prosecutorial effort. we want the people to hear it from him not filtered through bill barr who had his own misleading characterization of it. >> more than 80 house democrats have called for impeachment but the american people may not yet have the stomach for it. according to an nbc news wall
street journal poll say half of them say forget the hearings. a deal on the budget and debt ceiling appears to be taking shape. we still need the president's approval here. the washington post reports the pending deal will set new spending levels for two years. the white house had demapped 1d $50 billion in spend willing cuts. this agreement does not go that far but we don't know exactly how much would be cut. house speaker nancy pelosi and steven knmnuchin say. >> we're willing to go a good ways but the bottom line is the administration has to compromise as well. it seems when mr. mulvaney gets involved, they ask for things that are outlandish. he was one of five congressmen who wanted to shut down the government a few years ago. i'm hopeful that saner heads can prevail and we can come together. we are making progress but we're not there yet.
>> the bottom line here, every day there is less time. getting a deal locked in becomes more essential. if the debt ceiling is not raised, the government can default. a brutal heat wave straining power grids over the weekend. overnight up to 53,000 customers in new york city were without lights and air conditioning at one point. that number cut in half. con ed said it took 33,000 customers in brooklyn off the grid deliberately to protect vital equipment. in detroit, severe storms left 290,000 people without power and an unidentified woman hiking in brittain. >> good morning, guys. finally getting a break in the forecast after the upper 90s and
low 100s. laguardia, atlantic city, in and across bridgeport, connecticut. all of these setting or climbing records. it is the latter portion of july into early august where you see the hottest. that was saturday and sunday morning, low on sunday morning in boston, an incredible 83 degree afternoon. what if i tell you we don't make it there by this afternoon? highs only 81. of course you factor in the humidity yesterday, felt warmer than that. new york city's 100 gives way to that. throughout the next couple of days we will see the grate dual
warming trend. anything is bet jar. brexit and relations in the united kingdom. but perhaps this year, a more exhilarating endeavor awaits. defy the laws of human nature,at the summer of audi sales event. get exceptional offers now. sun care is self care. i used to not love wearing an spf just because i felt like it was so oily and greasy and that it was going to clog my pores. but what i love about olay regenerist whip with spf 25 is that it's lightweight, it's barely there.

16 minutes past the hour. the most divisive politician in brittain is just hours away from fulfilling his dream. his bid for power could make the brexit issue even messier. nina dos santos is live. >> reporter: thank you, christine. things are already getting messy. we're seeing a future boris johnson premiership. many are starting to resign from the cabinet theresa may is chairing this morning. the last cabinet meeting of her
tenure. by 5:00 u.k. time line in the late day we'll know who has triumphed in this leadership between boris johnson, a slightly divisive man. they said boris johnson could have done more to support the outgoing minister. we'll see phillip hammond, the chancellor, the finance minister in the u.k. and the justice secretary hit the air waives on the sunday meetings. he said that the country should come out of the e.u. by the latest deadline, by october 31st, do or die. they say that is economic
suicide leaving the relationship that the u.k. has with its largest trading partner, the eu, without another game plan. either way though, with this ton of resistance from the back benches, from senior cabinet members today, what we may see is the question of not so much whether boris johnson be prime minister by this time tomorrow but how long will a boris johnson tenure hold? christine? >> wow, the plot thickens. thank you so much for that. nina dos santos in london this morning. >> wow. meanwhile, irish eyes are smiling this morning after shane lowrie wins his first career major on home turf and did it in domination. anty scholls has that i the bleacher report. yo, jer! we gotta get to the show. ♪ i was looking for a sign. get on the bus. ♪ i need something to believe in.

last year, we ran the largest youth voter mobilization in history - helping double turnout and win back the house. i'm tom steyer and i approve this message. let's make change happen! i was in the united states' army for 12 years. i served two tours in korea, two tours in iraq. and if we were in a stressful environment or had a stressful time, or we just wanted to go talk, hey, we'd say, hey let's go smoke a cigarette. and that would be the office. you know, wherever that office was, be it next to a trash can or a light pole. now that we have our cigarettes, we're in meeting. interestingly enough, the further i got away from the military, i'd- i started noticing. you know, being in corporate environments and it not being as prevalent, being around smokers. so i would tend to be- become the odd man out. i became very self conscious because you're working in an office and then you go take a smoke break. you know, if you- you have any sense about you, you figure, well i'm kinda the only one taking a break- five times a day.
yeah i'll never forget it. the first time i actually tried juul i uh, popped a pod in it and took a couple of puffs and i was surprised at how similar it was to a cigarette and i wasn't expecting that. nlash serum solution. with our lash caring complex... see a thicker-looking lash fringe in just 4 weeks. over 10,000 women tried it and love it. my husband has noticed a difference. i really love lash serum. try new lash serum solution. from l'oreal paris.

jere land's shane lowrie blowing away the competition at the open championship in front of a friendly crowd. andy scholls has that story. unfortunately tiger, phil, rory, everybody weren't there. not a lot of chatter about a dominating performance. >> yeah, dave, but it was still a pretty awesome scene. when the royal championships started, all eyes were on rory mcilroy. shane lowrie hoisted the claret jug. he grew up 150 miles from the course. check out the fans chasing lowrie up 18 trying to get a glimpse of him win his first major. he had tons of family and friends make the trip to watch him close this out.
this wasn't even close in the end. lowrie winning by six strokes. winning his first major so close to home, it was just a dream come true. >> it was just incredible to walk down, the crowd going wild. it's like something that, you know, i just can't -- i couldn't believe was happening to me. all right. scary moments at the indians oi oi royals game. a 3-year-old boy was struck taken to the hospital. after the game lindor said more needs to be done to protect the fans. >> it sucks. you don't want that to happen to anybody, especially a little kid. i encourage every mlb team to put nut nets down. i completely get that.
you want to have that interaction with fans giving autographs and stuff, but at the end of the day we want to make sure everybody comes out of this game healthy. >> lindor said he heard the boy was doing okay. the netting at progressive field does go to the end of each digout, these. national basketball hall of fame enshrining six new members. yankees mariana rivera. the first ever unanimous decision. roy halladay died in a plane crash in 2017. his wife brandy took the stage to given his induction speech. >> roy would want everyone to know people are not perfect. we are all imperfect or flawed in one way or another. we all struggle but with hard
work and dedication, imperfect people can still have perfect moments. >> watching that must have been bitter sweet. >> yeah, it was a nice job by brandy. their boys were there. brayden recently drafted by the toronto blue jays. tough day but nice to see him go into the hall. andy, thank you my friend. >> romo, what's coming. many protesting the scandal plagued governor. he says he won't seek another term, but he's also refusing to step down.

crimes and misdemeanors. >> democrats raising the stakes ahead of robert mueller's testimony this week. will the testimony help or hurt the push for impeachment? if you obey, you will be save. if you obey, you will be save. alter your course. >> a british vessel seized after being warned by iran to change course. the u.k. vowing a robust response. and power is still out for thousands in new york and detroit. no air conditioning as one of the hottest, most unbearable weekends in memory comes to a close. welcome back to "early start," everyone. this monday morning. welcome back from your vacation. >> thank you. >> good to have you back. i'm dave briggs, 5:31. we begin in puerto rico, a major change coming there but not just yet. in response to a week of huge protests, embattled governor roberto rossello announcing he
will not run for governor next year. >> translator: i listened to every person and i've made mistakes and i apologize. i admit that apologizing is not enough. this will lead to a true reconciliation. >> another big protest set for today, the biggest of the six days. rossello resigning as president of the new progressive party but protestors are not in a mood to wait. >> many puerto ricans are waiting for him to step down after sexist and homophobic private chat messages. protesters say government corruption is undermining efforts to deal with high poverty rates, crushing debt and the aftermath of hurricane maria. cnn's nick peyton walsh is in san juan with the latest. >> reporter: a bizarre statement from governor rossello,
unthought of that he would step forward at 5:45 a day before a massive protest against him on monday where organizers hope to get a million people out on the streets and he says he is not resigning. there was a minor concession in the facebook broadcast in which he said he was not going to be contesting elections next year while in all honesty he was very likely to win those. the governor digging in his heels. the reaction from people behind me is, listen, this governor has to get out. one of the key goals is to lock down a major expressway into san juan. the malls are closed, federal governments are closed. the justice department is telling local employees still to come into work. i think there's a real sense that governor rossello is blind. he should leave a message, possibly the press secretary
didn't want to be associated with the corruption. it hasn't changed his mind. well, the protests are monday. we'll have to see. >> a critical day there. dramatic new audio capturing communications between the iranians and the persian gulf moments before they seized a british tanker. >> if you obey, you will be safe. if you obey, you will be safe. alter your course. >> a royal navy warship in the region telling the crew that the iranian revolutionary guard crew had no business telling them what to do. >> i reiterate that as you are conducting transit passage in an international strait, under international law your passage must not be impaired. >> iran detained it for a group.
just the latest escalation in the strait of hormuz critical for trait and matthew chance is in the united arab emirates. has breaking news for us. matthew, good morning. >> good morning to you as well, dave. so many issues rachetting up tensions in this persian gulf region. overnight. one breaking they have arrested 17 people in their country. they're accused of spying for the cia. now they haven't given many reasons but they've recruited on the getting jobs, health care, some of them who showed reports will be treated leniently. others that don't will be executed and subjected to the iranian judiciary. so that is also rachetting up tensions here in the persian gulf regions. you mentioned that standoff with brittain over the seizure on
friday of a u.s. -- sorry, of a british flanked oil tanker just a few miles where i'm speaking to you now over there in the gulf of oman and that busy shipping strait of hormuz. dramatic video of the iranian special forces from the revolutionary guard. a helicopter is here. the intersected radio broadcasts as well between the british and the iranian navy. the british navy couldn't get there in time but it did issue a verbal confrontation with the iranian navy but it wasn't able to stop the tanker being seized. the british are absolutely furious. they say there are going to be robust measures put in place in response to this. what exactly they are we don't know yet. british officials are working to discuss what ways they can take
forward. a possibility of more sanctions and international cop voi to protect shipping in the gateway and they want this a diplomatic one not a military one. matthew chance live for us along the strait. thank you. back here, for democrats who want to launch impeachment proceedings against the president, this could be a make or break week. special counsel robert mueller testifies before congress on wednesday. democrats have struggled to effectively use his report to make their case. mueller made it clear in may that charging president trump -- charging the president was never an option he could consider but he refused to exonerate him. >> if we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so. >> mueller will appear before the house intel and judiciary committees. here is what the two chair men
are hoping to achieve. >> the report presents very substantial evidence that the president is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors and we have to present -- let mueller present those facts to the american people and see where we go from there. >> since most of our -- americans in the busy lives haven't had a chance to read the report. it's a pretty dry prosecutorial work product. we want the people to hear it directly from him, not filtered through bill barr who had his own misleading characterization of that. >> more than 80 have called for an impeachment. according to the nbc wall street journal poll, half of them say forget the hearings. joining us this morning, julian zeletzer.
>> good morning. >> congressman shiv saying they want to bring this dry report to life. instead of reading the book, you watch the movie. is bob mueller going to give them a movie to re-animate it? >> no, he won't. it will help him reiterate but he's not going to go much beyond the report. these are very short hearings where there hb it won't be brought to life by the end of july for many americans who aren't paying attention. >> they'll need 100 additional votes to get through the house and impeachment wouldn't get through the senate. what is this about? is it about the election? >> yeah, if it was a few months ago it would be about impeach
bein beings. creating a record of what he's done. meantime, the president has elwill he the face of the party and he 1250e78s to have really doubled down on this this weekend tweeting yesterday morning, tweeting again, keeping this alive about these four congressmen. i don't believe the four congressmen are capable of loving our country. they should apologize to america and israel, et cetera, et cetera. you know, they are destroying democratic party but people will never destroy our great nation. is this going to work for the president? >> well, the strategy is to make the democrats look extreme and then to stir up white nationalism. it could help in a lot of electoral college areas where his core remains strong. the question is does it isolate
a lot of other people who can't vote for that even if they would vote for someone with a strong economy with low unemployment. we don't know. but clearly there is an appetite for some of this, which is unsettling for a lot who are watching. >> the face of a lot of these policies is steven miller. there's trash talking of the country, they still came back with this message. here's steven miller. >> there's a gigantic, enormous distinction between donald trump saying i'm going to get on the world stage and put america first at every single thing we do versus a view that says americans should never come first which is their view and that's what we're going to take to the ballot box. >> are they doing it respectfully. they have to respond and be
forceful that that's not true. criticism and protests and they're trying to defend them. democrats have to be forceful because if not, these arguments kind of creep out there and they become part of the public. >> but don't they also have to show who the party is led by if, in fact, it's not these four women? they're into the doing that. >> they could either do that or they could make an argument we are a coalition. they could stand by everyone in the coalition and they could try to rebut this argument rather than distancing themselves from the four, which i think actually sometimes plays into what the president wants to say. let's be clear, steven miller saying america say this shouldn't come first. they have never said that? they say the kind of ideal that draw people to seek asylum or
refugee are the very ideals. >> this is an old argument that's been made against liberals, republicans. you can go back to the cold war. they don't support america first. they don't support the country. it's a way to dismiss the protests that they're trying to achieve. >> thank you so much this morning. >> thank you. a deal on the budget and debt ceiling appears to be taking shape but it still needs president trump's approval. the pending deal would extend it and this agreement does not go that far. we still don't know exactly how much to cut. the august recess is just around the corner. here's what senator chuck schumer said about the negotiations. >> we're willing to go a good ways but the bottom line, the administration has to compromise
as well. it seems when mr. mulvaney gets involved, they ask for things that are outlandish. he wanted to shut down the government a few years ago. i'm hopeful that saner heads can prevail and we can come forward. we're not ma are making progres >> the u.s. government could default on its debt in early september if the debt ceiling isn isn't. they weren't the only ones in hot pursuit. >> oh, my god! >> i got it on video. i got it on video. and it really shows. with all that usaa offers why go with anybody else? we know their rates are good, we know that they're always going to take care of us. it was an instant savings and i should have changed a long time ago. it was funny because when we would call another insurance company, hey would say "oh we can't beat usaa" we're the webber family. we're the tenney's we're the hayles, and we're usaa members for life.
