7:06 am
>> thank you very much. >> all right, george. the violent storms are not over yet. rob, you're tracking it all. >> i would love to say that the pattern has shifted. but the setup for severe weather remains the same. not only for today, but it increases for the next four days. a lot of jet stream energy. all the way back through denver, a chance for seeing large hail. less of a chance of tornadoes today. but tomorrow, we increase it again. back toward san angelo. maybe oklahoma city. then a punch of energy from a california storm. come saturday, a very likely risk of seeing severe weather. mother's day sunday, doesn't look to be better. serious weather. >> okay, rob. thank you very much. now to the bombshell nfl report on deflate-gate. the investigation finds that tom brady likely knew that patriots' staff tampered with the balls before the championship game. ryan smith with the latest. good morning, ryan. >> reporter: and good morning to
7:07 am
you, george. this report on deflate-gate that took league investigators 103 days to produce puts tom brady in its cross hairs. saying staffers wouldn't have touched the balls without brady's approval. and disputing brady's claim that is he knew nothing. this morning, new england patriots quarterback tom brady hit hard by the investigation into the now infamous deflate-gate scandal. the 243-page report released wednesday stating it is more probable than not that brady was at least generally aware of the inappropriate activities involving the release of air from patriots game balls. the report also says. two long-time patriots staffers, jim mcnally and equipment assistant john jastremski participated in a deliberate plan to circumvent the rules. at the championship game against the indianapolis colts. the report, likely a blow to the
7:08 am
credibility of the super bowl champion quarterback who claimed he did nothing wrong. >> is tom brady a cheater? >> i don't believe so. i feel like i have always played within the rules. i would never do anything to break the rules. >> reporter: three months before the scandal broke, according to the report, brady angrily complained about the inflation levels of the footballs. after an october game. prompting this text message. tom sucks. i'm going to make that next ball an expletive balloon. the report states that in the weeks that followed, a flurry of text messages went between the pair. including this one, seemingly alluding to brady's knowledge that the balls were being tampered with. talked to him last night. he actually brought you up and said you must have a lot of stress trying to get them done. according to the report, mcnally, referring to himself as the deflator, at one point, asking in jest for help to get brady to pay up.
7:09 am
if he wanted balls inflated the way he liked. let's make a deal. come on. help the deflator. brady himself refusing to turn over his texts and phone logs. this morning, the nfl says it's considering what steps to take in light of the report. patriots' owner robert kraft saying in a statement to say that we're disappointed in the report's findings, which do not include any incontrovertible or hard evidence of deflation, would be a gross understatement. brady is not commenting on the report. his dad says i have no doubt about my son's integrity. not one bit and adding quote this was frame-gate right from the beginning. robin. >> dan abrams is here with more on this. we'll have michael weigh in as well. what do you make of the language that was used? >> they're being very careful to say more likely than not. same standard you would use in a civil case, by the way. you hear the patriots saying incontrovertible evidence.
7:10 am
there's not proof beyond any doubt in the case. there's not proof beyond any doubt in courtrooms all the time. this is the evidence they have. we're talking about deflating footballs. not taking someone's freedom away and this is the standard that's appropriate. >> with tom brady, he did not release his text messages. he didn't have to. it's not a criminal investigation. >> that's right. he didn't. he's not going to. now he'll suffer whatever consequences they decide to inflict upon him as a result. there are three possibilities here. big fines. i think that's for certain. possible suspension of brady. that's possible. many people think that's unlikely. and number three, the possibility for the team of the loss of draft picks down the road. we'll have to see if they do that. think about this in the big context of it. compared to a criminal case. murder would be fixing a game. that would be the equivalent of murder. the spy scandal, the equivalent of voluntary manslaughter. this is probably battery. and assault. something a little bit lower
7:11 am
than that and so i think you'll see a slightly lesser punishment than in the spy thing. >> what do you think, michael? the draft just ended. it would have to be the next draft. if there was some sort of penalty. >> i agree with dan. i think more likely a big fine. i don't think the team will have a problem covering. they went on to win the super bowl. everyone said, does it make a difference? in those weather conditions, it does. the fact that they're not sure tom brady is involved. i guess it's guys of a lesser importance with that team, i don't know that you can take draft picks away. >> the investigation showed that robert kraft and the coach didn't have any idea what was going on. >> brady was mentioned 378 times. it's clear they were focused on brady throughout this and he was definitely mentioned in the text messages et cetera. >> gentlemen, thank you. new questions about the clinton foundation, as hillary ramps up her run for president.
7:12 am
an event in morocco is putting more focus on foreign donations to the clinton global initiative. brian ross reports. ♪ >> reporter: morocco is one of the countries from which the clinton foundation says it will no longer take money. but this five-star luxury golf resort in marrakech, morocco, is the setting for a fundraiser this week. gathering over welcomed cocktail cocktails and canopies to help the worlds underprivileged. last night's event was held in great secrecy, with reporters not allowed inside. in his opening remarks, former president bill clinton brushed off criticism about the millions of dollars in foreign money the foundation received while his wife was secretary of state. >> i just work here. i don't know. >> reporter: now that hillary clinton is running for president, the foundation says it has put limits on most future foreign donations, including from morocco. one of the hosts of this week's conference is a controversial

government-owned morocco mining company, the ocp group, which gave the foundation $1 million. human rights groups say the phosphate mines in nearby western sahara, promoted in corporate video, violate u.n. provisions to protect the people that live there. >> when human rights are suppressed, it's a serious concern. >> reporter: but the ceo of the moroccan mining company, who denies the allegations, is front and center at the conference this week. clinton told supporters all the talk about foreign money ignores the good work his foundation does. >> there's one set of rules for politics in america. and another set for real life. you just have to learn to deal with it. >> reporter: with the clinton foundation now turning down big money from previously used foreign sources, the next overseas conference is canceled. if this is the last hurrah, they're going out in style. let's get to amy with the other stop stories. the train derailment. >> the video is so dramatic.
