Good morning I'm Jamie Norman and I cannot move you here in the top five things note this Thursday number one on solemn day be marker across the country. It's been one year since the school shooting massacre department Florida today thousands of people come together for a moment of silence to remember the seventeen lives lost that day. Florida's governor is now asking for a grand jury to review school safety statewide saying it's clear that more needs to be done since the massacre 76 gun control laws have been passed throughout the country some Benny Bob stocks and regulating ammunition signs. In Florida a new law raised the minimum age supplier fire arm to twenty wind. In a waiting period to three days on ten number two a federal judge has ruled that former top campaign chairman Paul man a fort continue to lie to prosecutors even after cutting a deal with them. The judge says Mann a port has breached his plea agreement that means he could. He's a longer prison term when he's sentenced next month a judge has made a fort misled special counsel Robert Mueller team about his contacts with the Russian associate. And up payments to a law firm on to number three both houses of congress are expected to pass the border security deal today. Sending it to president trump for signature and that bill provides only a fraction of the money the president demanded for new barriers along the border with Mexico and it makes no mention of a wall. The bill also funds federal agencies for the rest of the year but president trump. Has offered only a lukewarm assessment. They haven't got it yet. Will be getting it will be looking for our land mines because you could have that you know it's been known to happen before to people I don't wanna see shut down. Jet that would be a terrible thing. The bill does not include back pay for covering contractors who went without pay during the recent shut down. We had to Reno Nevada for number forward delta flight had to make an emergency landing after hitting severe turbulence. Jerry stuff videos posted on social media showed the chaos on board that's a drink cart overturned soda cans rolled down the aisle. And belongings flew everywhere after that plane suddenly took a nosedive. Five. People were injured meanwhile at New York's LaGuardia Airport it's scary scene inside another delta jet a battery pack started a fire in this over have been. Before takeoff flight attendant was able to put it out quickly. I finally number five all courtside collision at the New York Knicks game in nearly ended in disaster. For a certain Hollywood actress national treasure yes we give that right there Philadelphia. If this is sarge OMB were running. After a loose ball when he took the leap over the stance slightly rod over and. Oscar nominated actress Regina King alone and only look right beside her own I guess Lacey. War dead star studded events of that McCain will later thanked me for his athletic ability is wow yeah that's Magellan the rightly. Her serve on the lead writer for U we've got so much more to talk about including not leap of faith and that's that's our times day. It morning America. Day. So good it's valid and they ions that. You know what I'm in love where that Regina King was not injured. Absolutely dogs you get the Oscars of the cooking up a lot of things go I don't want to her since 227 and yeah you know when I was little kid OK you weren't born again the and they don't know the route Rick I didn't miss she's okay you Wear me. They were all love it Tracy Morgan had to say I know because I bet it was hilarious. And I just want to I want I have like. Dinner or some thing with. Tracy Morgan I just let me so much for handouts and then. Today today out of we're kind of. Gray area that. So precious and saw some things to get to this morning and certainly the bombshell allegations against a former. US air force intelligence officer she's charged with spying for Iran. And we're learning about what secrets she may have sharing BC's ludicrous RID. Is in Washington with the latest and Monica I'm sorry Lou. Mona we are learning about derby really and he her name is Patrick but I'm nick who wit. Amount of that letter get away with that maybe they brandy. Monica you have a fight with Monica Brady doing his mind and land mine at a it is God's eyes today. We now know and the rail authorities indicted. I think every marriage inexplicably I mean I know why you mix it up because the lady's name is a monocle wet. Now Monica wit is a former air force officer and she's looking at some serious charges. According to this 27 page indictment are saying the FBI is alleging and that she gave it US secrets to being Ron now. She was entrusted with the high is a level. Of security Clarence available and she was sent to Iran to perform some counter intelligence operation work for them. But before she this. Defected to me Ron she when she did she handed over all the information. And that she even helped Iranian hackers target her colleagues. Would spyware now when. Asked why she Erin not asked why she didn't win by the if that looked at some tax message that she sent it looks like. They believe her motive is ideological they say that she. Even at one point mention that she might do like snow then. And didn't put her training to good use in set an evil. So on there's a lot more information that needs to come out but right now she's still in the Iran and this is fascinating because they save issue really played. As some of her American colleagues and potentially great you've. Danger just I mean the crazy allegations and in this case now now according to the FBI and mrs. The information that she let out about the at the Pentagon programs a classified pentagon programs that she disclose information about to you Ron could cause some serious damage. To our national security so again these aren't light charges. Four other Iranians who were though ones who hacked and her colleagues computers have also been indicted but. It would be using this scene what comes to fruition because again she is still believed to be in Iran and not in the United States or anywhere that she might be extradited back here. Amman before we Levy obviously down there in Washington the big story we're following is all developments with potential shut down the president is expected to sign that right that it has changed on that front right.

Everything's indicating that he will sign and that we won't be heading into another government shut down cell but again. That story still developing.
