we're learning more how law enforcement handled the nightmare. the justice department releasing transcripts of the gunman's 911 call. among the revelations, police stormed the club after the shooter threatened to strap explosive vests to some of the hostages. authorities emphasize there was no gunfire in the three hours that it took to take down that gunman. >> i think there is this misconception that we didn't do anything for three hours. i'm just trying to clarify that's absolutely not true. >> the justice department originally released an edited version of the transcript which removed references to isis house speaker paul ryan was among many who slammed the move calling it preposterous, a full unedited transcript was released monday afternoon. >> now to politics. a potential tragedy averted on the campaign trail. a british nationalist charged with allegedly trying to carry out a plot to kill donald trump. the suspect was caught at a weekend campaign rally. abc's pierre thomas has the details. >> reporter: as the donald trump rally got under way this weekend at the treasure island hotel and
3:35 am
police officer stationed at the event and asked for an autograph. then, without warning, the man went for the officer's gun, trying to take it away, only to be quickly subdued. authorities now say that michael sandford, 19, allegedly told the secret service that this was an attempt to "kill trump." a complaint obtained by abc news claims sandford, who has a british driver's license, had been planning to assassinate trump for about a year. he allegedly told the secret service he had driven from california to las vegas on june 16th to kill trump after seeing news reports that the candidate would be there. a day later, he went to a vegas gun range to learn how to shoot. it's the latest security scare involving trump, who also had a man try to rush the stage of an ohio rally in march. no word on motive. but he allegedly told the secret service that if he were on the street tomorrow, he would try this again. and he allegedly said if he didn't get a chance to attack in vegas, he had a backup plan to go to an upcoming trump rally in
3:36 am
phoenix, arizona, to try to kill him there. pierre thomas, abc news, washington. and donald trump is also coping with a dramatic shake-up firing his campaign manager corey lewandowski. trump described lew wan dow ski as a good man, but he said it was time for a different kind of campaign. now, there's word that trump's children wanted corey out amid sliding poll numbers. sources say lewandowski was dismissed largely because of the campaign's worsening relationship with the republican national committee and gop donors. and trump's also facing an uphill battle when it comes to paying for his general election campaign. new financial reports show that the trump camp began june with $1.3 million in cash on hand, while hillary clinton's campaign started the month off with $42 million in the bank. after raising just over $3 million in may, trump loaned himself another $2.2 million. to the west coast now and two new large wildfires raging in southern california. only a canyon separates the fish and reservoir blazes which have

3:38 am
first quarter up $100 million. reservation changes or cancellation fees were another profit center, $745 million in the first quarter alone. >> that's a lot. we've got more numbers for you. so the announced attendance at yesterday's philadelphia phillies game was 22,118. three of those fans got a little bit more attention than the others. >> that's because there they are. decked out in their nun's habits and sunglasses. just enjoying a day at the ballpark. >> is that coors light? >> that is a cold miller lite my friend. >> it is. miller lite, sorry. >> they also took some selfies. >> and then they got -- >> they got jiggy with it. >> so things got really wild when the philly phanatic got them up on top of the dugout for dancing. truth be told, they're not nuns at all. they're part of a production of "sister act" running at a theater in philadelphia. >> i really wanted to believe they were
