there. what a show that will be, jlo and shakira in miami for super bowl liv. we were talking about it, she's like, oh, the hips don't lie. >> i'm so ready. every latina in the country is ready for that lineup. we are super excited about that. first we want to get to the latest on the white house and whistle-blower. the complaint now revealed showing president trump tried to pressure ukraine to interfere in the 2020 election and that complaint alleges the white house tried to cover it up. >> the president cornered and furious right now. he unloaded on his staffers who cooperated with the whistle-blower. >> i want to know who's the person that gave the whistle-blower -- who's the person that gave the whistle-blower the information because that's close to a spy. >> went on to say you know how we dealt with spies in the past. that veiled threat by the president was met with nervous laughter at the u.n. inside the white house confusion and worry after that explosive complaint that has created their biggest political battle yet. the impeachment threat is real. how fast it will go, how far it will go, two big questions this
7:03 am
morning. our senior congressional correspondent mary bruce starts us off from capitol hill. good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning, george. well, the revelations in this whistle-blower complaint have supercharged the impeachment fight here on the hill. this investigation is now squarely focused on these allegations and democrats here want to move quickly. some telling us they want a vote on impeachment before the end of the year. >> the president of the united states has betrayed his oath of office. betrayed his oath to defend our national security. >> this latest gambit by the democrats to overturn the people's mandate is unhinged and dangerous. >> reporter: this morning the whistle-blower complaint that sparked this controversy is sending shock waves through capitol hill. >> do you solemnly swear -- >> reporter: at the first major showdown of the new impeachment inquiry, the acting director of national intelligence, joseph maguire, defended the whistle-blower. >> i think the whistle-blower did the right thing. i think he followed the law every step of the way. >> you don't have any reason to accuse them of disloyalty to our country or suggest they're
7:04 am
beholden to some other country, do you? >> sir, absolutely not. >> reporter: in the complaint, the whistle-blower claims multiple u.s. government officials informed him that the president of the united states is using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 u.s. election referring to that july phone call where, according to the white house summary, the president asked his ukrainian counterpart to investigate his political rival, joe biden. the whistle-blower was not a direct witness to most of the events described but says the white house officials who told me this information were deeply disturbed by the call and the likelihood that they had witnessed the president abuse his office for personal gain. >> is it okay for a president to pressure, any president, to pressure a foreign government for help to win an election? >> it is unwarranted. it is unwelcome. it is bad for the nation to have outside interference. >> reporter: and the whistle-blower goes on to allege
7:05 am
that senior white house officials tried to cover it up, writing that they intervened to, quote, lock down all records of the phone call, especially the official word-for-word transcript. that they were, quote, directed by white house lawyers to put that transcript in a separate electronic system typically used for classified information, and that this was not the first time under this administration that a presidential transcript was placed there solely for the purpose of protecting politically sensitive rather than national security sensitive information. >> mr. maguire, do you agree that the definition of a cover-up is an attempt to prevent people from discovering a crime? >> i would say that's close. i mean, i'm sure there's others that don't, but i don't disagree with that, sir. >> reporter: the whistle-blower complaint was submitted to the intelligence community's inspector general who determined it was credible and of urgent concern but the acting director refused to forward the complaint to congress. instead, he called the white
7:06 am
house. >> so you went to the white house first. so you went to the subject of the complaint for advice first about whether you should provide the complaint to congress? >> there were issues within this, a couple of things, one, it did appear that it has executive privilege. if it does have executive privilege, it is the white house that determines that. >> but in this case the white house, the president, is the subject of the complaint. >> reporter: republicans were quick to denounce democrats but they offered little defense of the president's actions. and now a growing number within trump's own party are voicing concerns. >> i want to say to the president, this is not okay. that conversation is not okay and i think it's disappointing to the american public when they read the transcript. >> reporter: now, even director maguire says he does not know who the whistle-blower is and when pressed repeatedly, he refused to say whether he's discussed this matter with the president saying only that their conversations are privileged but we do know that the president
7:07 am
was watching some of this hearing and, george, he was clearly not happy about it. >> up and tweeting again this morning. mary, thanks very much. cecelia? you mentioned this at the top of the show. the new video showing president trump's furious reaction to the whistle-blower complaint. it happened during a closed door event right here in new york. our senior national correspondent terry moran is at the white house with more on this and, terry, boy, what the president said in that room stunned even people in there. >> reporter: it did, cecilia. some people gasped. some people laughed. the president is venting his frustration and anger behind the scenes in front of cameras, he can't believe he's got to deal with another impeachment threat. so the white house is gearing up and they are staffing up for this long legal and political challenge ahead. >> we're in a war. these people are sick. they're sick. >> reporter: this morning a new video obtained by bloomberg news shows president trump trashing the whistle-blower sources during a closed-door meeting with the staff of the u.s. mission to the u.n. >> i want to know who's the person who gave the whistle-blower, who's the person who gave the whistle-blower the
7:08 am
information? because that's close to a spy. >> reporter: at one point trump even seems to suggest he wishes he could resort to capital punishment. >> you know what we used to do in the old days when we were smart, right, with spies and treason, right, we used to handle it a little differently than we do now. >> reporter: overnight the president's personal attorney rudy giuliani attempted to handle this latest controversy depending the president and himself, doubling down on claims to investigate the president's political opponents were facilitated by the state department. >> the whistle-blower falsely alleges that i was operating on my own. well, i wasn't operating on my own. i went to meet mr. zelensky's aide at the request of the state department. 15 memos make that clear. >> reporter: secretary of state mike pompeo defended his department's actions. >> to the best of my knowledge from what i've seen so far, each of the actions undertaken by state department officials was entirely appropriate and
7:09 am
consistent with the objective that we've had certainly since the new government -- >> reporter: as president trump returned to washington for the first time since the launch of the formal impeachment inquiry, his frustration was on full display. >> i just watched a little bit of this on television. it's a disgrace to our country. it's another witch-hunt. here we go again. >> reporter: and the president also seemed to reveal his potential strategy to combat this investigation. >> there should be a way of stopping it, maybe legally through the courts but they're going to tie up our country. >> reporter: so you hear there the president already threatening legal action. expect a lot of court battles over whether members of the administration can be compelled to testify over a claim of executive privilege, over the production of documents as well and there's one thing for certain, though, the president can slow down impeachment but he can't stop it. it's in congress now, george. >> terry, thanks very much. let's talk to our contributors now. chris christie, former governor of new jersey and former mayor of chicago, rahm emanuel.
7:10 am
chris, let me begin with you. you were last here on tuesday before we saw the memo you said if he had said to the ukrainian president, do me a favor, look into biden, it would be a serious problem. turns out that's exactly what he said. >> listen, the bottom line, george, is that's the way he is. that's the way he talks. as i said to you -- we were off air, maybe i was channeling the way i hear him normally speak. i think in the end -- >> you were channelling your inner trump? >> no, i was channeling him. no inner trump here. he is convinced that there's absolutely nothing wrong with what he said. and that it was said in the context of the entire corruption problem in ukraine. that's his position. no one should expect he'll say anything differently over the course of time. >> you didn't hear republicans yesterday on capitol hill say -- agreeing with that. you didn't hear a defense. >> i'm saying the two things at the same time, george. i said what i said wednesday. i'm telling you what the president is saying. what he is saying is perfect conversation, no problem, that's going to be his position. and here's the problem for the
7:11 am
democrats on this is that when adam schiff does what he did yesterday, it doesn't help their cause. when he starts the hearing by kind of making up dialogue that he wishes would have happened between the president of ukraine, the president of the united states, you know, it makes the whole thing look like a circus. that's helpful to trump, not the democrats' cause. >> you've been on both sides of this. you were in the white house during president clinton's impeachment. you've been part of the democrat leadership. how should the democrats act going forward as they push on impeachment? >> two things, one, there's five cs -- call, coercion, cover-up, complaint and there's a computer. follow each of those streams. be steady, studious and strategic in your approach. and don't -- whatever you do, do not prejudge the judgment of the american people. if you stay -- if you look -- if you put politics in front of the approach, you're going to run into trouble. that's what happened in '98. >> just the facts. >> go to the facts on each of the streams, the call, the coercion part, the cover
7:12 am
part, the comper pt d e complaint part. and if you do that and do it steady and just get the material out, then -- and i think nancy being -- speaker pelosi being i, done it as an institution, if you put politics ahead of the policy you'll get caught. that's what happened in '98 to the republicans. >> the third "c," cover-up, that could end up as it almost always is a far more serious charge. >> i think there's no doubt -- if you're the white house, to me job one today is to get to the third "c." if there's something there, we don't know, it's second and thirdhand information from a whistle-blower but it's pretty specific. >> deemed credible by the inspector general. >> right, it's pretty specific stuff. but you don't know what's behind it. who are the white house lawyers? who are the white house senior officials? we've gone through this before, right? but if i were there, i'd be saying to them, project one, find out what that is. find out what that is.
7:13 am
you want to reveal it. if there's something there, you want to reveal it. you don't want to hear it on capitol hill. >> that is of the five cs, i would pursue this, but we learned something yesterday. this is not the first phone call of a foreign leader that's ever put away in that computer and that's not for the president 'family treasures. don't go chasing it. stay steady on this piece but there's other material in that computer which is not used in the situation room for the presidential phone calls. that's for the most -- >> isn't that the biggest danger for the president? you're getting at it in your answer. we don't know what happened. >> here's the thing. he can't not know, okay. if you're the guy in charge, you got to say to people, i need to ow eryingan met tdo,obin's rndi. what rob is recoending is smart and what they did was dumb. >> c i tell yoe they're making a mistake having been on
7:14 am
this side? this is where trump is going to work against trump. trump thinks he is the best teller against trump. what we did in the clinton years was president clinton said, look, i know -- to the reporters, you have to do your job but i have to do my job for the american people and i'm going back to work and we walled it off. donald trump will try to own and defend donald trump. he's going to be his worst lawyer, worst client and already his instincts are working against him. >> last thing for me -- that may be true in part because he's done that in the past but that's different than what i'm saying. what i'm saying if you're the guy in charge, and he is, he's got to know what's behind that whistle-blower complaint. >> for both parties there's peril and promise in how they handle it. >> that's where we have to end it. let's go to michael. >> i'm sorry we had to end that but thank you very much. [ laughter ] we'll turn now to that first winter storm of the season. it's on its way to the northern rockies where they are expecting up to four feet of snow and whiteout conditions. rob is here tracking the latest.
7:15 am
and, rob, winter is not coming. winter is here. >> it is. we went from fall to the beginning of this week and skipping ahead to winter for the northern west. potentially historic snowfall. a lot of blue on the map. four states under winter storm watches for northern montana, two feet, great falls north and west, could see over four feet in some spots and will affect some of the interstates with snow down to the pass level so significant snowfall for september and warm side has a severe weather threat we'll talk about in a few minutes. cecelia? >> we're not going to take that personally, rob. thanks. to the latest on the vaping crisis. the cdc reporting an alarming surge in new cases of lung illness. more than 800 people across 46 states and at least 12 deaths possibly linked to vaping. t.j. holmes is here with more. good morning, t.j. >> reporter: good morning, cecilia. cdc is actually starting to use this word to describe what's ppening. outbreak. more and more people are showing up to ers around the country with chest pain, coughing,
7:16 am
ea and doctors are now in diagnosing them the first thing they're starting to ask, do you vape? now 805 probable cases of vape-related lung injuries leaving at least 12 dead in 10 states, up from 7 deaths reported by the cdc just last week. north carolina resident andrew doss started vaping in 2016 to help him quit smoking after 15 years. >> i was surprised that at even getting a lung collapse, i mean, you just don't hear about that and then to hear that it's due to vaping and i figured at worst vaping was as bad for you as cigarettes. >> reporter: health officials say they can't connect the illnesses to any particular compound or product. the new figures also highlight a disproportional number of young people and men being affected. nearly 3/4 are men. 2/3 are between the ages of 18 and 34.
7:17 am
as emergency rooms across the country see more of these cases doctors are enacting new measures to quickly identify potential illnesses. >> i think it's important to ask the important questions first off. you know, have you been vaping or have you ever been vaping in the past several months or years. that really is the crux of the issue. if you fail to ask, you may kind of miss some of the early signs. >> reporter: and the cdc recommendation now if you don't vape, don't start. and for young people, guys, do not vape at all and if you are vaping, stop right now. >> all right. sounds like good advice there, t.j., thank you so much. now to a really powerful moment for prince harry. let's take a look. the royal is in angola walking in his mother's footsteps retracing the route princess diana once walked 22 years ago visiting a minefield to champion the issue of land mine clearance. we'll have much more on this coming up in our next hour. >> so touching. we're following a lot of other stories this morning. new details about the super bowl halftime show. michael is shaking it already. what jennifer lopez and shakira are revealing and is jay-z plg a and the baggage handler
7:18 am
arrested in that major airport heist stealing nearly $300,000. now the money is missing and we'll have the details on that ahead. now we go to rob. >> talking about snow and we get all sorts of weather. flash flood along the california/arizona border, two to three inches of rainfall. the warm side, boy, it's been warm along the southeast and another front bumping into that heat so we have a severe weather threat, davenport, peoria, getting up into chicago and certainly the risk of seeing flash flooding. time for your weekend getaway brought to you by walmart. brought to you by walmart.

7:38 am
is focusing more on the conduct. in effect, how bad was what you did here? how much effort did you make to defraud the system, et cetera? and it seems that in these last two cases the judge is basically saying, yeah, one was $400,000, one was $250,000 but in essence it was the same sort of scheme and as a result has given a four-month sentence to both of them but very different for felicity huffman. >> right. what we know, though, they've all pled guilty. >> yeah. >> they all showed remorse to the court which has to have an effect. lori loughlin right there is, of course, fighting the charges. does that suggest that if she's found guilty she will definitely get more than four months? >> i would certainly think so. it would likely be a different judge. this is the judge who is sentencing most of the people pleading guilty but this is kind of the floor. this is saying, you want to accept responsibility -- prosecutors by the way have been asking for more in each of these cases than the judge is giving. but if you view the fact that lori loughlin has been charged with an additional charge in addition to just this services

allegation and you have the fact that she hasn't pled guilty so if she goes to trial and is found guilty, i don't see how she doesn't get more than four months. >> i could imagine someone coming up to lori loughlin and saying, listen, you'll fight it, it will take forever and you're likely to face more prison time if you're found guilty. why not take the deal. could she get a deal? >> i don't think she could get the four months at this point, but, again, the issue has been the prosecutors are recommending these higher ranges, so the quote/unquote deal she was being offered by prosecutors was in essence to plead guilty and then recommend two years in prison. the judge is now coming down from those. that's certainly an indicator that even if you plead guilty, you can get a more lenient sentence. if she pled guilty, i don't think she could get four months at this point. >> that ship has passed. dan abrams, thanks very much. cecilia? coming up, the baggage handler accused of stealing $300,000 straight from the tarmac and now the search for that money.

8:05 am
any kind of symptoms at all. then when you look at those 5%, some will get what we call systemic symptoms, fever, body ache, chills, the other part will get central nervous system involvement. that is the group that has the highest risk of death, 30% mortality rate so, again, this is rare, but if you get brain involvement, that's very serious. >> so if you're feeling any early symptoms make sure you go to your doctor and get checked out. what can people do to reduce the risk of being exposed to eee? >> the silver lining we know very well how to protect ourselves against mosquito-borne illness. number one the most important thing, use insect repellant, wear protective clothing covering your arms and legs and limiting time outside when mosquitoes are at their peak particularly dawn and dusk. it is common sense. you'll see local spraying and, again, restricting activities out of an overabundance of precaution. >> rather restrict activities than getting sick and possibly dying. thank you so much. coming up here, selena gomez is opening up about one of her

[ applause ] we are back now with my interview with tiger woods. i met up with the golfing legend here in new york this week while he hosted his first ever nexus cup, a special golf tournament that raises money for students who follow their passion and education. when we got together tiger really took me to school on the golf course. >> last time on "gma" we had a little putt-off.
8:39 am
if i remember correctly -- >> i won. >> no, no, you did not win. >> i didn't. >> if i remember correctly, time was up and you hit a putt that went in after. >> one ball left for tiger. >> yeah! >> i won. >> no, you didn't. >> we were tied. >> reporter: golf legend tiger woods and i need to settle on old dispute. >> you want to go closer so we can make it? >> oh, that's very offensive. i'm biting my nails. >> right to left. >> get in the hole! oh, no, you better not. oh, no. >> oh! >> whoo! >> you know what -- >> next! >> if i make this, i'm second greatest putter ever. >> winner. congratulations. >> reluctant loser i am. >> reporter: woods is in town for the nexus cup, a tournament he's hosting to benefit his charity, the tgr foundation which started out teaching golf but has expanded to support education and science, technology, engineering and math. >> what brought that change?
8:40 am
>> i wanted to go back to how i was raised. it was family, school and then sports. why is golf out front? we should flip it. >> reporter: they also created the earl woods scholar program named after his late father with the goal of supporting kids through college. >> it was important for my dad that i had that support system when i went off to college. part of being a scholar, not only are we sponsoring you, you get a mentor as well. >> so many of these kids never had a thought or realized they can go to college. >> we didn't think it was going to be that impactful or we didn't think that there were going to be that many kids who had never been to college in their entire family history so that was what drives us to this day. >> reporter: he's also driven by winning, despite multiple surgeries for back and knee injuries. >> plenty of people who were like he'll never make it back. >> i never thought i would actually play the game again,
8:41 am
but post that, once the nerve pain went away, it was just a matter of time before i started to piece it together. >> the return to glory. >> reporter: he did, making an epic comeback, winning the mast ers. >> in all the years i've been at the masters and participated since '95 i never heard chanting before. and so that was -- that was crazy. >> lately you've had your fifth knee surgery. >> i did. >> how is the recovery coming? are you back on the golf course? are you practicing? >> i got the clearance last week to start full practice so i played nine holes the other day. sore, yeah. it's sore but now i can start lifting and getting my muscle back and getting my weight up and doing all that stuff again. >> reporter: during his recoveriry, he took a family trip to see rafael nadal play in the u.s. open. by his side were his two children, sam and charlie, even his girlfriend erica herman. you both have the same mannerisms. it's crazy.
8:42 am
>> we were 20 at the time. but we're both in the moment. that's what makes it special. >> what do you think your kids are learning from watching you? >> no matter how bleak it is you continue to push. you continue to fight and you give it everything you have. even though sometimes that moment is not very much, but you keep at it. >> and that is one thing you can say about tiger. he never gives up and he never stops giving. all of the proceeds from the tournament go to the tgr foundation which by their estimates, cecilia, they've been able to reach over 1 million kids. >> wow. what a great story. [ applause ] he's doing a really great thing. you're not so bad on the golf course. >> since tiger has came off his knee surgery and is sore, i think i can beat him. tiger, i challenge you again. yeah, that's right. all right, rob, what you got? >> i loved that segment, michael. nice work. to the southeast, you guys have been baking with heat and dry weather. 105 in columbus, georgia. macon, 102. you kidding me? that doesn't include the humidity. today's heat indices near 100
