7:04 am
summer season. it's a lot of folks flying, david, and the weather that we're talking about in the last couple of days has been this complicating factor. more than 900 flights canceled yesterday, more than 7,000 delayed and, of course, they're trying to deal with that today to get all these folks where they want to go. >> a big dose of patience needed. what about new tsa procedures for screening carry-ons testing them in certain airports. where is it happening? >> reporter: we're not seeing it here at reagan. ten airports around the country testing new procedures where you have to take out any electronic device bigger than your food, some food products and even big books. the problem is we are packing too much into our bags so tsa is testing this new plan. l.a.x., phoenix, boston, some of the big airports where those tests are going on, david. >> all right, thanks. i'm one of those people, the ziploc bag is broken. get a new ziploc. >> what you should pack is a lot of patience. the roads are going to be packed this morning. so let's go to abc's eva pilgrim

7:06 am
it doing the same thing. >> do you have suggests on how drivers can help themselves in being safe out on the road? >> reporter: well, for being safe -- >> yeah. one of the safe things you can do is not try to report from inside the car. you always have electronic problems. we'll check back with her. other news this morning and another big headline, the montana special election results coming in overnight and the republican candidate for congress who's been charged with assaulting a reporter throwing him to the ground has won. overnight he spoke out about the confrontation and abc's clayton sandell is in bozeman, montana, with much more. hey, clayton. >> reporter: hey, david, there were big questions about whether that explosive recording was going to affect the race here but this morning, montana voters have spoken. this morning, montana republican greg gianforte is set to become the newest member of congress. >> tonight we won a victory for
7:07 am
all montanans. >> reporter: his victory speech just 24 hours after allegedly assaulting "guardian" reporter ben jacobs who asked a question about health care and recorded this response. >> sick and tired of you guys. the last time you came in here you did the same thing. get the hell out of here. >> skwooez. >> get the hell out of here. the last guy did the same thing. you with "the guardian"? >> yes, and you just broke my glasses. >> the last guy did the same thing. >> reporter: gianforte's campaign originally gamed jacobs saying the reporter acted aggressively disputed by a fox news crew that saw the whole thing. >> when gianforte grabbed him by the neck, both hands, slid him to the side, body-slammed him and then got on top of him and started punching and then yelling at him. >> reporter: the sheriff charged gianforte a former software executive with assault. house speaker paul ryan called for an apology and overnight -- >> when you make a mistake, you have to own up to it.
7:08 am
>> reporter: gianforte fell on his sword. >> i should not have treated that reporter that way and for that, i'm sorry, mr. ben jacobs. >> reporter: so far jacobs has not responded to that apology. gianforte will soon be headed to congress but first he'll be headed to court. by june 7th to face that assault charge. >> clayton, thank you. now to president trump closing in on the final days of his first international trip, this morning in sicily meeting with the g7 leaders which includes some of america's most important allies. and back here at home, there are two major developments, a federal appeals court has upheld the block on the president's travel ban. and the trump administration now says they plan to take that fight to the supreme court. one of the president's top advisers, his son-in-law, jared kushner, is now a focus of the russia investigation. we'll have much more on all that ahead but first let's go to our senior white house correspondent cecilia vega in italy for more on the president's big morning. good morning, cecilia.
7:09 am
>> reporter: good morning, robin. not a bad backdrop here for you. this is where the leaders of the seven most powerful countries in the world are gathered today hoping to try to tackle some of the most pressing problems and behind the scenes many of them have plans to lobby president trump hard. this morning, president trump in this scenic town in sicily rounding out his first trip abroad meeting with world leaders like japan's shinzo abe. >> great to have prime minister abe, a friend of mine. >> reporter: their focus, north korea. >> it's a big problem. it's a world problem and it will be solved. at some point it will be solved. you can bet on that. >> reporter: but his presence on the world stage already making headlines for moments like this. the president appearing to push the prime minister of montenegro aside stepping to the front of the pack for a photo-op. and this handshake with france's new president, emmanuel macron. >> congratulations, great job.
7:10 am
>> reporter: it went on and on, so long it appears president trump tried to pull away. their knuckles turning white and he did not seem to make any new friends with his speech to nato. the alliance he called obsolete during the campaign. >> nato members must finally contribute their fair share and meet their financial obligations. >> reporter: the president telling them it's time to pay up. >> 23 of the 28 member nations are still not paying what they should be paying and what they are supposed to be paying for their defense. this is not fair to the people and taxpayers of the united states. >> reporter: some leaders laughing it off. others whispering, canada's justin trudeau stone-faced. yeah, many of those leaders looked very uncomfortable on that stage there. the president, though, is tweeting this morning he is calling this trip very successful. he says it may have saved the
7:11 am
u.s. billions of dollars and millions of jobs. it's unclear exactly how this trip may have done that. the issue that he is sure to face behind the scenes this morning, david, climate change, many of the european leaders here looking to push him hard on that one. >> big issues ahead and just a stunning backdrop behind you, cecilia. hope you get a chance to enjoy a little bit of it. always busy, cecilia vega, thanks to you. let's bring in our chief white house correspondent jonathan karl traveling with the president in italy. jon, first the developing headline involving the president's son-in-law jared kushner. also one of the senior advisers, now his contacts with the russians are under scrutiny in the investigation by the fbi. what have you learned? what are they looking at? >> reporter: well, here's what's going on. he is a person of interest to that fbi investigation. there is no indication whatsoever he is a target of the investigation. but they will want to talk to him, specifically excuse me, specifically about his contacts during the transition with the russian ambassador and also his
7:12 am
contacts with a top executive in the state owned bank. russian state owned bank. he's clearly going to be -- he's going to have to deal with this and have lawyers deal with this. it will be a major distraction but important to note, david, no indication that jared kushner is a target of this investigation. simply at this point somebody that they want to talk to. >> all right, jon. working around the clock. we watched the president telling nato leaders they're not paying their fair share for defense, not backing down as some leaders looked at each other, some uncomfortable moments and now expected to face tough questions on the g7 on issues they haven't seen eye to eye. what are you seeing? >> reporter: well, it's been a tough reception. you know, the president went to nato and delivered a very stern message, almost a lecturing message telling them that they had to pay their fair share for collective defense. that's not surprising. something he said very strongly as a candidate. but it's what they didn't hear from him that was so concerning. he didn't come out and bluntly
7:13 am
reaffirm america's commitment to collective self-defense, in other words, that an attack on any nato ally is attack on all nato allies. he didn't say that the white house says, of course, the president believes that and shares that commitment that has been around for more than six decades for the united states, but he didn't say it. that hurt. and now issues like climate change, refugees, even how tough to be with russia on all issues disagreements with our strongest allies here in europe. >> jon karl and our entire team traveling with the president, thanks to you all. david, now to a new arrest in connection with the concert terror attack in the uk. british police carrying out more raids trying to root out a possible terror network and matt gutman is on the scene in manchester this morning. good morning, matt. >> reporter: hurricane good morning, robin. authorities say there are eight men total who have been arrested. all of them detained in connection to terrorism and as authorities try to close the noose on any possible accomplices they are scrambling to determine if there is a
7:14 am
second device out there. in raid after raid authorities here racing to roll up a possible terror cell searches sweeping england. for the first time police with long guns patrolling trains. at one rate south of manchester, the bomb squad moved in and hundreds forced out of their homes and into the streets. it is now a global investigation. eight men in custody in england and the father and younger brother of 22-year-old salman abedi who detonated that bomb arrested in libya. authorities telling abc news good progress is being made as they zero in on possible accomplices, they're now revealing more about his movements. in july of last year video shows him in this north african robe and just days before the attack at this shopping mall wearing the backpack suspecteds to have carried the bomb and libyan authorities say just 15 minutes before detonating that device, he called his mother and brother
7:15 am
asking for forgiveness and the last of the victims have been named and at this memorial site for them, we found this muslim man weeping. >> really, really breaks me. >> reporter: he came here, he said because of the major's message of unity in the crowd we tracked down the mayor. i want to introduce you to the man would came up to you earlier. >> if we start thinking like that, we can start making a difference. >> a different philosophy. >> reporter: now the pressure is on that mayor and police here because this weekend the city is holding its biggest sporting event. that as authorities learned that he got through multiple european airports without being picked up three days before the attack. >> matt, thanks very much. michael. we're going to switch gears and all know that graduation season is in full swing and facebook's ceo mark zuckerberg returned to the school he
7:16 am
famously dropped out of, harvard, to deliver the commencement address. take a look. >> because let's face it, you accomplished something i never could. [ laughter ] if i get through this speech today, it'll be the first time i actually finished something here at harvard. there is something wrong with our system when i can leave here and make billions of dollars in ten years while millions of students can't even afford to pay off their loans let alone start a business. the challenge for our generation is to create a world where everyone has a sense of purpose. >> interesting speech. he talked about his best memory from harvard was meeting his wife priscilla. he thought he was going to get kicked out because he started a business there and they wanted to see him. he didn't get kicked out but said he was at a party his friends threw for him and saw his wife and said, hey, i'm going to get kicked out of here in three days and you have to go out on a date with me.
7:17 am
>> i saw that in the movie. that was good. that was good. >> a true story. >> all right. michael. thank you. now you have the other top stories and one that's developing right now. >> that's right. it is a developing story unfolding right now actually. gunmen opening fire on a bus full of coptic christians happening in egypt. so far at least 24 people have been killed. dozens more wounded. that bus was headed to a monastery. no immediate claim of responsibility and you'll remember on palm sunday isis attacked a church in alexandria killing dodds there. also breaking overnight more than 30 people were injured when their tour bus overturned in new jersey. it was heading from new york city to atlanta when it collided with a tractor trailer. all of the injuries, thankfully, are said to be minor. and some stunning figures this morning about alzheimer's disease. the number of americans with that deadly condition jumped more than 50% in a 15-year period. the centers for disease control says america's aging population and longer life spans have
7:18 am
contributed to that increase. and a heart-stopping encounter between a hunter and back bear caught on camera. take a look as he was on a spring hunt in canada when he spotted the animal. it suddenly charges and a starts making loud noises to scare it off. he is knocked to the ground, boom, the bear quickly ran off and wesley says he is grateful to be alive and that the bear just bruised his elbow and his ego. >> could have made louder noises. >> yeah, exactly. take a look at this. one reason to obey traffic signs. so, yep, you might end up in wet cement. the driver in nebraska ignored traffic cones thinking i'll go around it. it'll cost him about $10,000 in damage done to the street. we're not even talking about the damage done to his car and perhaps his ego. >> yes, as well. that's right. whoo. got to pay attention. >> all-wheel drive. >> made traffic worse after that. this memorial day weekend and you were telling us tough for you to get back home. >> so differ and this is still

welcome back to "gma," everybody. you're looking at central park this morning. everybody is out there excited and ready to kick off the holiday weekend with a very special friday because we got both florida georgia line and nelly performing live. that means hit after hit after hit. cruise on into the weekend. >> into the holiday weekend. >> that's right. also right now president trump is in italy this morning on the final stretch of his first international trip meeting with some of the world's most powerful leaders. the g7, then he and the first lady will attend an orchestra concert and dine with the italian president and all eyes on the roads and skies as an estimated 3.3 million people will travel this holiday weekend. severe weather hitting the center of the country moving east. thousands of flights already
7:31 am
been canceled or delayed. in the meantime, we'll move on to that new development in the russia investigation. we've learned that under scrutiny now president trump's son-in-law, ivanka trump's husband jared kushner and his contacts with the russians and abc news learned contacts between kushner and russian officials are a focus and abc's david wright is following the developments for us. >> reporter: good morning. jared kushner is not just another white house staffer. he may well be the president's closest adviser, the one guy in the inner circle who can't be fired so the fact that he's now swept up in the russia investigation puts this all uncomfortably close to the president. jared kushner's lawyer promised full cooperation. quote, mr. kushner previously volunteered to share with congress what he knows about these meetings. he will do the same if he is contacted in connection with any other inquiry. fbi sorts tell abc news kushner is not accused of any wrongdoing, nor is he a target of their investigation.
7:32 am
but the fbi is curious about a december meeting kushner had with russian ambassador sergey kislyak and retired lieutenant general michael flynn. flynn's further contacts with that same russian ambassador ultimately got him fired. >> i asked for his resignation. he respectfully gave it. >> reporter: during the transition kushner also met with the head of a russian bank that is subject to u.s. sanctions. >> jared is a very successful real estate person but i actually think he likes politics more than he likes real estate. he's very good at politics. >> reporter: just a few years ago jared kushner was running his dad's company cutting his first big real estate deals in brooklyn. >> the last place i thought i would be would be spending a lot of time in brooklyn. >> reporter: the 36-year-old real estate investor with no prior government experience now is never far from the boss' side. "the week" magazine calls him america's princeling.
7:33 am
he rarely speaks publicly but has the king's ear. >> he is a great guy. >> reporter: the point guy for the generals, the back channel for world leaders. in charge of reinventing government and brokering middle east peace. kushner has so much on his plate he's the butt of late night jokes. >> okay, that's a little much for one family member, maybe they should give middle east peace to tiffany. >> reporter: so the fact that kushner's name has now come up as part of the ongoing investigation into russian meddling and possible collusion by trump associates -- >> the entire thing has been a witch-hunt. >> reporter: -- has got to be a sore subject. well, at this point we learned the fbi has not even reached out to kushner nor have they requested any documents yet but sources tell us he's being considered in a different category altogether from paul manafort, michael flynn and some of the people that are more directly implicated. >> as you point out no contact with the fbi. we know that robert mueller is
7:34 am
now special counsel heading up the investigation. any kind of time frame? >> none whatsoever and this fbi investigation is very different from the congressional ones because there they're negotiating with friendly ally, republicans in congress. here robert mueller operates on his own timetable. >> reaching into the west wing. >> yeah. >> all right, david, thanks. david, thank you. now to that mysterious death in miami. a federal prosecutor's body found on hollywood beach raising a lot of questions. abc's linsey davis is here with the latest in the case. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, robin. beranton whisenant was working his way up and accepted a job working in the u.s. attorney's office in miami in its major crimes unit. now his own death is being investigated as a crime. this morning police are investigating the death of miami federal prosecutor and father of three, beranton whisenant jr. the 37-year-old's body was found in the water close to shore on hollywood beach in florida by a civilian walking on the beach early wednesday morning. police say he suffered a head
7:35 am
wound, possibly caused about a gunshot or another type of trauma. they're currently investigating his death as a crime. witnesses say he was found fully dressed and that personal effects were found on his body. whisenant had recently joined the u.s. attorney's office in january working in the major crimes unit. according to court records he had been handling several visa and passport fraud cases while also teaching a paralegal program at the university of miami. the u.s. attorney's office tells abc news we will miss him deeply. he was a wonderful lawyer and great colleague. no comment from the u.s. attorney's office about the circumstances surrounding his death. if this winds up being a case of foul play he would join a short list of prosecutors killed on the job. according to a monument in texas that memorializes prosecutors, 14 have been murdered in the last 100 year. >> really? what are investigators telling you this morning? >> so detectives are saying they're looking into this either as a homicide, suicide or something else trying to figure
7:36 am
out. there are reports there was head trauma but still waiting for them to release the cause of death and the fbi is investigating here. >> absolutely, linsey, thank you. coming up here on "good morning america," just two minutes away an abc news exclusive. could a popular russian anti-virus software on your computer be a security risk? we'll be right back.

we are back with that abc news exclusive. there is growing concern about a widely used anti-virus software made by a russian company and installed on millions of computers and smartphones all around the world. our senior justice correspondent pierre thomas has more. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: robin, good morning. top officials from the nsa, fbi and homeland security were called to capitol hill this week for an urgent classified meeting to discuss growing concerns about a russian software company that has broad reach inside the u.s. its products installed on countless american cell phones and computers. based in moscow with 400 million
7:39 am
customers worldwide, kaspersky lab sold at target and best buy highly regarded for its ability to protect computers and cell phones and may have seen their commercials. >> i got it covered. we switched to -- >> reporter: top officials are concerned they could pose a grave fat security threat. word that russian spies could try to use it to attack critical infrastructure or snoop on american customers and dramatic senate hearing this assessment from the nation's top intelligence officials. >> very concerned about it, sir, and we are focused on it closely. >> would any of you be comfortable with ksapersky lab on your computers. >> a resounding no from me. >> that's dan coat, the director of national intelligence. sources tell abc news the fbi is in the midst of a counterintelligence investigation of the company and the department of homeland security issued a secret report about them and in a secret memo last month the senate
7:40 am
intelligence committee demanded the trump administration address, quote, this important national security issue. >> we are very much concerned about this and about security of our country. >> reporter: here's the worry. to work effectively anti-virus software typically needs complete access to user files and hard drives. if misused it could be the ultimate insider threat. but even as a concern mounts abc news found not just private citizens but federal agencies like the u.s. bureau of prisons and some defense department systems using the russian software. >> the fact that a foreign company would be so penetrated into our supply chain, it poses enormous vulnerabilities. >> reporter: eugene kaspersky who founded it said such concerns are completely unfounded. >> we don't share our customers' data with anyone. >> reporter: speaking with us exclusively from moscow he rejected any claim his company is or would allow itself to be a tool of the russian government. >> there are rumors about our partnership with the government

agencies. that's false. >> reporter: so if they asked you to spy on american, if they asked you to spy on government agencies, your response would be what? >> my response if i'm asked to spy on anyone coming from any state, any government, not only russian will be definitely no. >> robin, when i asked him about why so many are expressing concerns about his software, he said it's because his company's market share is increasing and, quote, someone doesn't like it. >> pierre, there have been some questions raised about the company's past ties with the kgb. >> mr. kaspersky attended an academic institute associated with the kgb. you're right. a number of officials did work for the kgb and russian military but mr. k aspersky said they ended many years ago but some see i as a cause for concern.
7:42 am
>> all right, pierre, thank you very much. michael, what's coming up on the big board. >> we got lebron james and steph curry about to clash for the third time in the nba finals. third time in a row. would will come out on top? we'll find out when we come back in two minutes. get to kohl's memorial day weekend sale

7:45 am
you know, i was thinking about this. he's kind of like austin powers but instead of an international man of mystery he's the international mystery of manners. and we -- i don't know if we can really, really tell the tale of all those things he did. >> you know what, matt, we can't help but notice a few interesting handshakes on this trip, as well. what is that about? >> you know, freud said sometimes a cigar is just a cigar but for donald trump a handshake is not just a handshake but the manner he's done over the years, pictures of him over the last 20 years, this is what he does and exerts dominance and how he acts. >> it's a very strong handshake. i think that's definitely duly noted. but there were stronger images visiting the western wall in jerusalem, matt. his meetings in the middle east so do you think some of these awkward moments have overshadowed or will have an impact on foreign relations? >> well, there's two audiences, amy, two he harkes one is the american public. i don't think the trip will have
7:46 am
effect on them. international trips hardly ever do. he's going to come back and next week we'll talk about something else he's in the middle of. the other audience more importantly is the leaders. i don't think he gained any stature among those leaders. i think you see pictures of smirks and people rolling their eyes and so in those audiences at best it was neutral and in some cases -- one thing he needs to do probably got to hire a chief of protocol which he doesn't have which allows him to tell him what things he ought to do. what we tell our kids before they go to kindergarten, don't do this. don't cut in line. say this. he needs a chief of protocol. >> all right, matt, i think you just auditioned for the job. there you go. >> exactly. >> you passed the test. all right, thank you, matt. now to the clash of the basketball titans. lebron james and steph curry are set to go head-to-head again in the nba finals after the cavaliers crushed the celtics last night, 135-102 setting up the third straight championship
7:47 am
match-up between cleveland and the golden state warriors and on the way, lebron james passed michael jordan as the league's all-time scoring leader and new champ who wears the number 23 as a tribute to jordan. talking about it after the game. this is what he had to say. >> i think i fell in love with the game because of mike. just seeing what he was able to accomplish. but i felt like mike was so, you know, when you're growing up and you're seeing michael jordan it's almost like a god so i would never believe i could be mike. >> well, he's well on his way to being just like michael jordan. some people think he's exceeded him already and as for the finals james said he didn't even want to think about it because the warriors cause him a lot of stress and espn's ryan smith joins us now. this is the first time in nba history that two teams are in the finals three years in a row, they're bringing probably the best two basketball players on the planet and steph curry and lebron james. >> you got that right, michael. a three match. who doesn't love that.
7:48 am
a four-time mvp in lebron facing off against a two-time mvp against steph curry and took it to a game seven last year when they went at it. each one won a title each the other. this year will determine who is boss. the big "storytellestory is kev. golden state took him to a game seven last year and added another mvp to their lineup. so when you talk about nba super teams it's the two of these guys and to me this is a match -- a match made in nba heaven. >> i got to ask, you got two dominant players, two dominant teams, three years in a row, is this a good thing or is this a bad thing? i'm just saying. i'm asking the question some people are asking. robin, robin is -- >> robin is upset. >> yeah, robin is upset. don't be. i got hope for you. i'm like you. i'm a guy from philly. you know what, hope looks like a far away thing for us. but if you look at this team, if
7:49 am
you look at the situation, it took lebron three years to make the playoffs and a bunch of years to win a title. the dubs and warriors weren't that great and took time to build up. lebron was a great player from the beginning but it took time and had to surround him with a great team and eventually moved to miami. came back but when you talk about the development of both of these team, they had to be surrounded by great players. the great team made it work and so for the teams out there who are looking on the outside looking in, there's hope because over a few years you can make it to this level. >> there's hope. >> there's hope. they can be a dream team just like that dream team i see over there in times square. >> ah. >> thank you very much, man. we miss you by the way. very quickly, you guys, matt, included in this. who is going to win? who is taking it home, cavs or warriors. >> golden state. let's not forget stanley cup finals start, pittsburgh -- >> pittsburgh won game seven last night. >> yes, they did. well done, matt. >> who you dot. >> dubs in six, kevin durant,
7:50 am
steph curry, too much to overcome, mike. >> wow, okay. >> all right. i'm not going to ask you because i know how you feel about it. everybody, nba finals are coming to abc, game one is next thursday at 9:00 p.m. eastern. >> is robin going to talk to me after this? >> i know. we have to go over here and bridge that and coming up, the new warning about one of the most popular toys out there. what every parent needs to know about fidget spinners and, everybody, get ready because we have florida georgia line and nelly in central park and as robin said earlier we are going to cruise into the holiday weekend. coming up "gma's" summer concert series presented by king's hawaiian. irresistible since 1950.
