What would have it gets beyoncé if it stop it got to keep going on that and I also think it he's going that fast actually if there that you need to put someone like me next they had many days he had just about you know give breaking records. There's that's pretty cool well a lot to get to this morning we'll get right to the big story and that is in the south where a tornado outbreak is to blame for widespread destruction. ABC's Elizabeth herd joins us with the latest this morning a Elizabeth. They're saying as many as twenty people. Who were killed in this rare outbreak. At last check today with 23 but unfortunately that number is expected to rise and the full scope of the destruction. It still be an asset but officials in hard hit areas say. There is debris just about everywhere they look and that damage done is just heartbreaking. Down south. Cleanup already underway where this one turned deadly leaving a path of destruction Alison their strained as lord protect everybody around it. More then a dozen tornadoes were reported across parts of Alabama and Georgia. Knocking homes off their foundations toppling trees crushing cars and knocking out power to thousands. This man in Georgia showing the devastation in his neighborhood while on FaceBook lied. In Alabama the entire state under a seat of emergency all they went from door to die as Washington is something clouds and am residents. Still in all but stepping in to help pick up the pieces. But here my whole life me personally this is especially get now to open this is this is the worst. With officials in the county warden Deb cold beer is expected to rise. As crews get back out in the daylight to resume their search and rescue operation. Officials say they worked late into the night last night trying to look survivors even fine to bones with heat printing devices attached to them. Again their work is continuing at daybreak today with help arriving from up off the region Kenneth. Just incredible and I know the work will continue Elizabeth her thank you so much and as Elizabeth's Honda that's on that same system moving in northeast bringing snow. On its letter I'm meeting is. A winner and then there's cold comment on top of that that marks coming in like a lion York city to be at a lot of inches of allow us now to brace themselves for not. A president rob slammed Democrats on Twitter overnight accusing them of hurting the country as they got open new investigations into potential obstruction of justice and much more. Apprehend or former tropics an attorney Michael Cohen had to say the House Judiciary Committee chairman is seeking documents from dozens of people including the president's side. This morning house Democrats are prepared to launch a sweeping investigation into president trump and his inner circle. We will be issuing document requests over sixty different people and individuals. From the White House to begin investigations. To present the case that two American people about it that obstruction of justice. Corruption and abusive past. Jerry Nadler chairman of the House Judiciary Committee that would lead impeachment hearings included Donald Trump junior and Trump Organization CFO Alan Weiss oberg. Among those who will be contacted today. President of the United States. Thus wrote a personal check. For the payment of hush money. As part of a criminal scheme Democrats are claiming the bombshell testimony a trumps former fixer Michael Cohen showed more evidence of potential criminal behavior. All of a sudden. They're trying to take you out with. In a two hour marathon speech trump denied the charges is no collusion so now they go in morph into. Let's inspect every deal he's ever done. We're gonna go into his finances wig and a jet ski is deals Wiggins checked. These people's. The president's Republican allies in the house are standing by him I think congressman Nadler decided to impeach the president that day the president. Won the election. On North Korea president Robert suggesting that congressional grilling of Colin. Contributed to the failure of the summit with Kim Jung room. Tweeting for the Democrats interviewer and open hearing for convicted liar and frost or at the same time as the very important nuclear summit with North Korea. It's perhaps a new low in American politics in May have contributed to the walk. The president is also facing him in Couri. And to our son in law what do we gotta top secret security clearance over the objections of career intelligence officials and the White House counsel office. The house oversight committee is set a deadline for today requesting the White House turn over documents related to his security clearances. In your view even though the president has a right to distribute thanks to anyone he wants to give it to is that an abuse of power. Yes I think it was an abuse of power look at the president has a right to do a lot of things but he can abuse his power in doing there. There's another possible political setback for president from there appears to be. No votes in the senate to block its national emergency declaration to build the southern border wall enough Republicans say they will join Democrats in rejecting the move but it doesn't appear congress. Has the numbers to override the president's promise to veto. So we will see what happens there. While group of migrant families made their way back to the US border.
