activity, and then some of the people inside of that building, everybody is silent, while they wait for a response, everybody is silent, like a pin drop. they must have reached a wardrobe or closet or something. just piles and piles of clothes from that hole. they're trying to find, i guess, the family under there. in the first floor of this house about 100 yards in front of the position we're in right now. what we don't see is the construction and heavy equipment and things like that. there's just so much devastation in this area right now, that they don't have enough team to go around. what they're needing is heavy equipment. tear using their hands and a farmers tractor. ambulances going by. the roads are closed. there's very little access into the heaviest areas where we are right now. chaos in a situation like this, it really is chaotic.
you know, there are piles and rubble. and those piles there, you know, several hours into this event, and, you know, you see helicopters over the area. but you don't really have a sense they've gotten control of the rescue operations. they're not sure how many people might be here. this is sort of a holiday community. in a beautiful mountainous area of central italy, where a lot of people from rome have their summer homes here. tourists here as well. these renovated farm houses. it's what's so beautiful about this country. as we see time and time again, that which makes this country so beautiful, these ancient farm houses just become deadly in an earthquake like this. >> barbie nadeau, we'll let you get back to work there covering that earthquake. as the search and rescue
operation continues, the italian red cross mobilizing resourcing. rescue crews are on their way or already onsite in the disaster area. >> first priority to find people in the building that collapsed. and to find the survivors here. from the look of this area, it's very rural, it's a model of longtime valleys. and it's not only small cities like amatrice, for instance, but there's also the entire country alone in the middle of a valley. so, they need to have help as soon as possible. so this is their main challenge. >> all right. will those emergency crews be fighting against the weather. let's bring in meteorologist pedram javaheri. >> boris and christine, the only piece of good news coming out of this is the weather pattern next week. hard-pressed to find much in the
way of cloud cover over this region in the next coming days. in fact, the forecast over the next three days showing a warming trend, in the mid-80s. overnight, close to 60 degrees. all of these fantastic when it comes to search and rescue for folks in this region. upwards of 20 million people feeling the shaking associated with this quake. the usgs does a wonderful job of looking at previous quakes. based on previous data, it would be between 100 to 1,000 people. we take a look at previous ga s quakes, we know in 2009, the l'aquila quake, a 6.3.1, also six miles in depth and happening in the 3:30 in the morning period.
very similar quakes to what we saw of a couple years ago. guys. also breaking overnight, north korea test firing a submarine based ballistic missile off the east coast. it landed 300 miles away in the sea of japan, also known as the east sea. a lunch violated the zone for the first time ever. japan's romney calling that test launch an unforgivable reckless act that significantly damages the peace and stability of the region. the launch comes during a joint military exercise between united states and south korea. the attack based on a new report from the associated press saying more than half the private individuals that met with hillary clinton when he was secretary of state had donated to the clinton family foundation. trump is calling the foundation the most corrupt enterprise in political history. it's line of attack he kept up on the campaign trail yesterday in texas. >> it is impossible to figure
out where the clinton foundation ends and the state department begins. it is now abundantly clear that the clintons set up a business to profit from public office. they sold access and specific actions by and really for, i guess, the making of large amounts of money. >> now, the clinton campaign has rejected trump's claims and the ap reporting that they're based on. cnn's jeff zeleny has more from washington. >> christine and boris, the clinton campaign is pushing back hard on a new report saying that secretary clinton had more than half of her meetings to donors to the clinton foundation during her time as sect secretary of
state. now, clinton campaign spokesman brian falon said this, he said this story relies on utterly flawed data. it cherry picked a limited subset of secretary clinton's schedule to give a distorted portrayal of how often she crossed paths with individuals connected to charitable donations to the clinton foundation. now, the clinton campaign is saying this story is simply not true. it's opened the door to questions here. fueled this fire that donald trump has been calling on for really several days to put an end to the clinton foundation. now the clinton campaign on the defensive here about the foundation already changing rules. just earlier this week, president clinton said he would step down from this foundation. he would stop raising money for the foundation if hillary clinton is elected president. so this latest report is one more example that the nexus between the secretary of state's office and the foundation will remain an issue throughout the rest of this campaign.
today, secretary clinton is in california raising money, looking forwards to a speech tomorrow in nevada where she will question donald trump's temperament in the latest installment in what some call the trump lecture series. >> thanks for that, jeff. joining us to talk about the clinton foundation. cnn's josh rogin he's a columnist for "the washington post" and a good friend of the show. good morning. >> good morning. >> let's start here with this line of attack by donald trump about hillary clinton and corruption. he was on teleprompter yesterday delivering again and again this same sort of theme. listen. >> if our secretary of state can be bought or bribed or sold, look, what's happening right now with government favors, then the whole american system is threatened. so many people for doing so far less are right now suffering tremendous repercussions.
tremendous. for doing so far less, for doing a tiny fraction of what hillary clinton did. it is a disgrace. >> how effective is this going to be for team trump? >> well, it's effective, in the sense that people are not talking about trump. people are talking about hillary clinton. but in typical trump fashion, what he's done here, he's taken the sort of appearance of impropriety and accused of her felonies and actual improprieties. we don't actually have evidence that there was a pay for play. that the clinton foundation said if you donate, you'll get this. what we've seen is coincidental meetings, a series of overlapping relationships, what seems to be a conflict of interest. but what donald trump is do he's taking that and exaggerating it to the point where he's accusing the secretary of state of felonies and turning that into a campaign slogan. it's good politics, but it's
really sort of misleading in terms of the actual facts. >> josh, i want to point out two polls for you very quickly. one monmouth university poll, of voters in missouri, that shows donald trump has a one-point lead over hillary clinton 44 to 43%. month a state that is typically, reliable republic since 2000. also another poll, from virginia, roanoke collins poll shows trump with -- clinton with a lead over trump. despite that the red of the rnc, reince priebus is staying positive. i want to play you some call. >> i think people want to buy the changed product. i think that's what both parties saw all year. but it's going to be important for us and for donald trump to continued down this measured path that he's down. and if he does that, he'll be
tighter ahead or just after labor day. >> a reminder, labor day is only about two weeks away. how much of this is faith in the new leadership in trump's campaign in kellyanne conway? >> this is the most optimistic, semi plausible prediction i've ever seen. it's kind of -- you know, he takes a look at the numbers, and he says something that doesn't match the numbers at all. the transfer of the trump campaign are all going off in the right direction. but reince priebus has no choice, really. what else can he say? he's got to project his air of confidence. the trump organization has no infrastructure, and the clinton team has moved all of their sort of focus away from comfortable light blue states to these states that are now in play. so it's really bad news for the trump organization. and reince priebus is spinning hard here. but the facts are stubborn
things. although they're trying to address this problem and hoping that donald trump will stick to his script and not make any huge errors. if history is any guide that won't last long. >> this script to donald trump, he's pretty deftly delivered some attack lines over hillary clinton the last day or two, while stage on script. one of this this attack line on immigration. list ton him talk about what he says is hillary clinton's position on immigration. >> hillary clinton wants a totally open border. she wants catch and release. she wants obamacare and other things for illegal immigrants, in many cases, more than hour great veterans get. >> okay. there's like five things to fact check in there. but bottom line, she wants a pathway to citizenship for people who are not criminal,
illegal immigrants. she wants to deport criminals. but this plays with him, and even -- it's not -- we're not clear what his position is on immigration when it's said and done. >> right, his positions are all over the place. the bottom line is, even though he's reading offer the teleprompter, it doesn't mean he's telling the truth, the controversy has shifted to the steve bannon and kellyanne conway era, he can be reading from the teleprompter and saying things that are wrong. that's the new donald trump. >> thanks. critical meetings for vice president joe biden as he touches down in the turkey. can biden help restore some calm? that's next. you may be muddling through allergies. try zyrtec® for powerful allergy relief. and zyrtec® is different than claritin®.

in that bedroom in the building. there's been frantic efforts to try to move the rubble. then silence, as they call the names of the people they believe are inside that building. we see even beyond that, though, gist a devastation. this is an enclave with about 20 residents. everybody knows each other's names. everybody's got each other's back. that's why they know exactly where that bedroom is. they're describing a wood floor. people in this area waiting with bated breath. this season repeats itself over and over again. up the country road, on the way to the epicenter. a few kilometers up the road here, where a town of 2,000 was completely devastated. the mayor says half the town is gone, reduced to piles of rubble like you see right here. it's just incredible to see some of these buildings standing upright. others nothing but rocks. and you really get a sense of urgency and community here.
people are sort of sitting in a nearby soccer field across the road here, trying to wait for news. trying to get shade. it's slightly warm here. you've got one of the things, you notice, the absence of heavy equipment. these people are using their hands. garden tool, all of those things to try to find the people in the area. there's just so much devastation that some of the civil protection equipment is being used in other areas. they're trying desperate to get as much equipment to get the rubble out of the way and rescue as many people as possible. one of the things they know how many people live here permanently. but they don't know how many people were here on vacation. this is a very popular vacation area for people who live in rome trying to escape the heat of the city. for internationals, people who come and rent some of the village. that's part of the complication. >> one of the main challenges as barbie record is getting the heavy equipment where it needs
to go. neighbors apparently using hands. anything they can get their hands on at their disposal to try to rescue those under the rubble. thank you. the italian red cross immediately mobilizing all of its resources. a spokesman telling cnn, medical personnel, ambulance, search and rescue crews are already onsite in the disaster area. >> the first priority is now to find people under the building that collapsed. and so to find the survivors. and from the way of this area, it's very rural. it's mountains and valleys. in small cities like amatrice, obviously, but other regions but also they are in the middle of a valley. so, they need to have help, as soon as possible. so this is their main challenge. >> it's really a recipe for disaster. an area prone to earthquakes. you had one 6.2 magnitude
happening at 3:00 a.m. the question now, will the emergency crews be fighting against the weather. let's bring in meteorologist pedram. pedram. >> boris and christine, the only piece of news is coming out of the weather pattern the next week. hard-pressed to find much in t way of cloud cover over this region in the next coming days. in fact, the forecast over the next three days showing a warming trend, in the mid-80s. overnight, close to 60 degrees. all of these fantastic when it comes to search and rescue for folks across this region. of course, the bad news is the amount of people who felt the immense quaking associated with this quake. upwards of 20 million people feeling the shaking associated with this quake. the usgs does a wonderful job of looking at previous quakes. learning from them, as far as damage potential left in place from this quake. and the highest likelihood of fatalities, they're estimating based on previous data would be be between 100 to 1,000 people. we take a look at previous quakes, we know in 2009, the
l'aquila quake took almost 300 lives, it was a 6.3.1, stronger than the one we just saw. six miles in depth and happening in the 3:30 in the morning period. very similar quakes to what we saw of a couple years ago. guys. >> pedram, thank you for that. to politics now, donald trump and republicans with a new criticism of what they call a pay to play culture at the state department. it's a new report from the associated press saying more than half the private individuals meeting with hillary clinton agency secretary of state had done tated to the clinton family foundation. trump calling it the most corrupt in history. a line he kept up on the campaign trail in texas. >> it is impossible to figure out where the clinton foundation ends and the state department begins. it is now abundantly clear that
the clintons set up a business to profit from public office. they sold access and specific actions by and really for, i guess, the making of large amounts of money. >> a spokesman for the clinton campaign says the report relies on flawed data and, quote, cherry-picked a limited subset of clinton's schedule to give a distorted portrayal of the situation. joining us to talk about this and more on the 2016 race. josh rogin, he's a columnist for "the washington post." good morning. what do you make of the ap story, finding half of the events on her calendar are people who donated to the clinton foundation? >> right. it's going to be a huge party and the clinton campaign is working hard to push back. 85 donors out of 154 private meetings. if you're secretary of state,
you have thousands of meetings. 85 is really not half. it's a small message. that's going to be the clinton campaign's message. that the ap report distorts what the secretary of state was doing at the time. at the same time, 85 is a large number. it's a lot of donors. even though it doesn't technically break the rules that clinton and the clinton foundation agreed to, it looks bad, okay? and it seems that all the relationships that hillary clinton had with the clinton foundation donors is all intermingled. so there's no smoking gun. and it's not really, you know, a straight-up conflict of interest or evidence of corruption. but it will be enough for the trump campaign to run with for the rest of the week, at least. >> trump not holding back when it came to that ap report. he's also going after hillary clinton on immigration even after he softens what has been a hard line stance of his own on immigration. i want to play sound, donald trump during a town hall with
sean hannity on fox news. listen to what he says. >> okay. >> you have years and year of people waiting online, and they've gone through a process and they've filed -- legally, they filed. and they're great people, in some cases. i guess in some cases, maybe not. but you have really great people wanting and so proudly wanting to come into a country -- >> is there a part of the law that you might be be able to change that would accommodate those people that contribute to society, have them law-abiding, have kids here? >> there certainly can be a softening because we're not looking to hurt people. we want people. we have some great people in this country. we have great, great people if this country. so, we're going to follow the laws of this country. >> there's certainly a marked difference between that and mexicans are rapists and criminals. so, this kind of plays into the softening, not just on immigration, but the softening of trump himself. his outreach to minority groups. do you see this change in the
candidate as something that could potentially help him? or is this just his last resort as he watches the polls slide more and more towards hillary's direction? >> sure, i think you're exactly right. we're seeing a softening. it's not surprising considering that the original plan was to create a deportation force to expel 11 million people. it's basically unworkable. nobody really thought that was going to happen. we're seeing him adjust, right? the question is is it too little too late? if you talk to the hispanic community leaders, the vast majority of them would say that trump is too little, too late. the numbers clear. trump is trailing starkly with all minorities, especially with african-americans. this adjustment is not going to convince those people that trump is better for them than hillary clinton. so, it shows an evolution of the campaign. but in terms of getting actual support from these communities it's unlikely to proceed. >> i still don't know what the
policy is. we're going to follow the laws. and then we hear the laws are outdated and they don't work. the laws have led us to this position here. i still don't know what the policy is on that to determine. it's up to kellyanne conway. nice to see you, thanks, josh. vice president joe biden making a critical stop in turkey with the country fighting a wave of terror in the wake of a failed military coup. can joe biden help. restore some calm? more on that, next. ♪
