to have to evacuate. it's times like these those local communities are turning to their local affiliate. their sister station is now resuming duties on that station. stunning political news overnight. sources tell abc news that michael cohen claims that donald trump had advanced knowledge of the trump tower meeting where russians were expected to offer up dirt on hillary clinton. trump has repeatedly denied having any knowledge of the meeting. abc's pierre thomas has the latest. >> reporter: good morning, george. the president just came out touting the economy. these explosive new allegations, evidence of the growing rift between president trump and his former attorney michael cohen. what did the president know about that infamous trump tower meeting and when did he know it? >> multiple sources telling abc news that michael cohen claims that then-candidate donald trump was aware of the june 2016 trump tower meeting with the russians before it happened. last night, trump's attorney rudy giuliani depicted cohen as a liar.
>> no doubt in my mind that he's not credible. the man is a liar. a prove liar. >> reporter: cohen's attorney lanny davis denying to comment. the stakes could not be higher for cohen if he tell it is story to the fbi. if it's not true, cohen could face prosecution. if it's true, it contradicts repeated claims by the president and the president's own legal team. >> i have to be clear on this george, the president was not aware of the meeting. >> >> reporter: and the president's own son donald trump jr., who was contacted about the russians offering up damaging information of hillary clinton, testified that his dad didn't know about the meeting. trump junior again making the claim on fox news. >> did you tell your father anything about this? >> no, it was such a nothing. >> reporter: prosecutors in new york are examining whether cohen committed financial crimes and looking into his roles of keeping quiet sexual affairs involving trump before he took office. now word that perhaps the most powerful trump organization
official not named trump has been subpoenaed by federal prosecutors. here's trump talking about allen weisselberg on the apprentice. >> replacing george this week is my chief financial officer allen weisselberg. you think george is tough? wait until you see allen. >> reporter: he's mentioned on that controversial you new audiotape where trump and cohen are deciding whether to buy the rights to the story of a playboy playmate who claims to have had a sexual relationship with trump. cohen proposes using a shell company. >> i spoke with allen about how to set the whole thing up. >> reporter: the president is happy about the economic news. he was tweeting about cohen beforehand saying i did not know about the meeting with russia and my son don jr. sounds like somethibody is maki up stories.
>> want to bring in dan abrams and chris christie. let's start, dan, for the sake of argument, assume what michael cohen is claiming is true and that mueller has evidence to back it up, that president trump had advanced knowledge of that meeting. what would it mean? >> it could mean potential legal problems. we talk about collusion. collusion in and of itself isn't a crime. you have to be able to show a conspiracy. you know, could they make a case based on that? yeah, they could. when you're talking about this, this is the heart of the entire investigation which is potential connections with the russians. it's not just mike cone. it's donald jr.'s evolving statements about why the meeting was set up and afterwards what happened. it's donald trump himself's own statements and tweets about hillary clinton and potentially damaging information. it's everything around this. you put that in conjunction
with what michael cohen said and you have a potential problem. again, let's not forget that most people believed that robert a siinpr this will go into a report that goes to congress. >> you're a former prosecutor, what would a prosecutor do with a claim with this. >> this is problematic. first off, if i were the u.s. attorney for the south korean district of new york and michael cohen and people on his behalf are telling the immediaty this stuff, it makes me more and more reluck stand to make a deal with them. >> we don't know that michael cohen -- >> the bottom line is, it's out there now. so, the ability to vet this kind of stuff, the ability to corroborate it becomes diminished. prosecutors work best in quiet and in secret. mueller has shown that over the course of this investigation. whoever's doing this, putting this stuff out there, it's a limited group of people as dan and i were talking about earlier who have access to this information and can be credible. this just hurts cohen.
it makes his ability to get -- >> that's why this speculated it could have come out of the trump. >> that's even worse. that's even crazier. >> it's all hard to figure out. immediately when i first heard it, i thought it had to come from michael cohen's team. cohen's team really distanced themselves. >> this is the question that he wouldn't answer in my interview three weeks ago. >> right. look, he's looking for a deal as chris is pointing out. the last thing you want to do is start frustrating, angering the very people you want to make a deal with and this is the sort of thing that will do that. apparently, they were already irritated about the leak of the tape itself. now this is even worse to some degree. this really goes to the heart of robert mueller's investigation. >> a few things, too, in terms of everybody's reaction to all this, first off, we don't know where this came from. we don't know if this is anything that michael cohen is
willing to say. his response from his legal team was not us. didn't come from us. we don't know if it's true. >> if it's true, it's trouble for the president, trouble for don jr.? >> if it's true, everybody has more questions to answer. but, again, remember this, too, if it's just one person, you know, corroborating this kind of stuff is very difficult. especially if you're going for the president of united states. you better have some serious kr krob ration. >> robert mueller keeps working. thank you very much. we want to turn now in that disastrous day for facebook, the biggest one day loss in wall street history. abc's eva pilgrim is here. some investors are calling for founder mark zuckerberg to step down. >> reporter: that's right. mark zuckerberg is waking up to monumental loss this morning. thursday, facebook's stocks plummeting an astounding 19%. the company losing a historic $119 billion in just 24 hours. no other company has ever lost
more than $100 billion in market value in just one day. some are calling for zuckerberg to be removed from the company. citing concerns he wields too much power and answers only to himself. now zuckerberg personally lost more than $15 billion in stock on thursday. that drops him down to number six. cecilia. >> thanks, eva. a lot of questions how this might impact other stocks. george. the latest now on the murder of an 18-year-old black woman in oakland, california. nia wilson and her sister were both stabbed while waiting for a train. nia did not survive. the attacker is now facing charges. social media has exploded with anger over how police have handled their case. the #sayhername has gone viral. abc's linsey davis. >> reporter: protesters both in the streets and online have already declared this hate crime. police stay they're still searching for a motive and have not ruled race out as a factor.
this morning, a grieving family is preparing to bury 18-year-old nia wilson. the teen girl brutally stabbed in an unprovoked attack while exiting a train in oakland, california. >> my daughter was everything to me. i was supposed to be planning her graduation not her funeral. >> reporter: her murder is now being investigated as a possible hate crime. the accused murderer appeared in court on wednesday as nia's family watched. >> there has to be evidence to show it was motivated by hate. in this case whether it was motivated by their gender or by their race, we're still gathering evidence to look at that. >> reporter: according to police, the 20-year-old approached nia and her sister as they heading home from a family party, stabbing them both. before disappearing into the crowd. >> all of a sudden, we transfer and just to get blindsided by a maniac. for what? i don't know why.
>> reporter: cowell was arrested 21 hours later, charged with murdering the young woman who had planned to join the military after school. but what was seen as a lack of coverage in the aftermath of nia's murder led to protests and outrage online. more than 68,000 people taking to twitter with the #sayhername. celebrities urging justice for nia wilson. tracy ellis ross tweeting our bodies and humanity deserve safety and joy. anne hathaway calling out white privilege, saying may she rest in the power and peace she was denied here. adding white people do not have equivalence for this fear of violence. cowell has not entered a plea. the district attorney says they are not worried about his competency to stand trial. nia's dad said he was supposed to be planning her graduation not her funeral. her funeral will take place next week. >> so senseless. thanks so much. >> gone too soon. but some uplifting news this morning.

>>ot yet. >> i'm sure there are companies looking at you right now. kennedy walker from lsu. >> for those of us who have to go back to school in the fall, how do we make sure that our bosses don't forget about us? >> if you're going back to school and you're going to be pushing on a boss for a job offer, it's in poor taste. it's like asking a girl out on a date and asking her to promise you to marry her one year out. every boss knows that people that put pressure on their plate is no good. people that take pressure off their plate are the ones you want to hire. you must ask, you must ask in a diplomatic way. staying in touch and thanking them for the job offer that you already had and making it personal as to what you learned from them sticks in people's minds. you're more apt to get that jo >> okay, finally, lewis from

okay, all of you love a great steak. we're back with a meat lover's diet that's catching up. abc's zachary kiesch here to explain. welcome. >> reporter: this is really an extreme diet to say the least. imagine eating meat and only meat for every single meal. well, there's group of people who are taking that to the next level. they believe it's the way to optimal health and performance and you should know this, the benefits are still up for
bate. ke a look. ♪ >> reporter: travis stateman is say simple dude, but he's strict about his diet. he eats the same thing for every meal. >> meat. >> reporter: do you consider your diet extreme? >> no, because i'm not eating carbs that are making me hungry all the time. >> reporter: he's part of a movement called carnivory, no veggies, no fruits. no carbs. their argument, meat worked for the cave mern amen and it can w us, too. i don't think i have seen so much meat in someone's fridge. travis said it was meat that helped him eliminate cravings, build muscle and shed pounds and he's not picky. any meat will do. even when it's raw. >> the hard part is raw, takes more chewing. >> reporter: i'm going to have to take your word for it. dr. drew pinsky tried the diet himself. >> three, four days, i felt better. my sleep went down and my energy
went up. >> reporter: now travis' girlfriend is on board. >> so, for me, i lost 30 pounds without exercising over the course of a summer. there was no afternoon burnout. >> reporter: most days start with a coffee. lunch today is fast food. you got four patties, cheese and bacon. and this is how you live your life? >> yeah. this is how i live my life. >> reporter: and for dinner, it's a pork chop. travis runs a facebook group for meatheads where dieters share stories about how they cut the size, adopted this strict diet and are feeling better than ever. >> i think everyone should be willing to experiment. >> travis and his girlfriend go through ten pounds of meat every three days. in terms of overall health, some big question marks. travis hasn't been to the doctor since adopting the diet. in terms of me, i'm more of a fruit and veggies kind of a guy.
