And that tornado Rambo regard as the deadliest hit the US in the past six years and now rescuers will be working with temperatures. In the twenty's. Turning now to Washington in today's big story or president trump is accusing Democrats of conducting a fishing expedition. After the arched a sweeping investigation digging and everything from his administration. Whose business empire. House lawmakers demanded documents from dozens of people and an eighties linked to the president ABC's Elizabeth her. Joined us in Elizabeth that includes from his sons and son in law. SA today family friends associates you name it Democrats say they want to talk to anyone who might have information who could provide them with documents and notes Bob. Phone conversations and meetings. There'd just doing their job but the president says. That's harassment. Overnight the White House blasting Democrats calling your lead as the investigation into allegations of corruption obstruction and abuse of how work. A disgraceful and abusive fishing expedition. White house Press Secretary Sarah standards writing a statement the Democrats are not after the truth they are after the president. Are you gonna quarry. Yeah.

Let's look beyond the question of collusion House Judiciary Committee wants answers to everything from the firing a former FBI director James coney. To the hush money payments to stormed the annual to the president conversations with Vladimir Putin. And the problems are profiting from the presidency. Committee chairman Jerry Nadler on MSNBC laugh ninth. Our job is to protect the rules law.

Clark was holding a gun while -- police that I don't he was holding. Turned out to DE self. And we have some breaking medical news this morning scientists believe a patient has been cured of HIV. Don't reveal more later today but if true it would be only the second known case of HIV being here. This morning a possible breakthrough in the fight against aids doctors say for only the second time in HIV positive person is now showing no Trace of the virus. It comes twelve years after American Timothy Brown known as the Berlin patient became the first known adult to be cured. Both patients underwent stem cell transplants from donors who carried a rare genetic mutation that made them resistant to HIV. Doctors say this second successful case shows that I'm proud was not an anomaly. We now have reason to believe that the Berlin patient was not a one off case meaning it is possible. To nearly or maybe even completely eliminate HIV from the body of an infected person. The patient in this most recent case known as London patient received the bone marrow transplant three years ago and stop taking medication eighteen months ago. Our doctors say it's too early to say he secured. Highly sensitive tests are unable to measure total amounts of HIV in his body. X were warned these treatments will likely not cure all HIV patients the procedure is expensive into risky and finding a match without genetic mutation is difficult. We're certainly optimistic that the London patients cured. But because we have only one case of confirmed cure so fine Amtrust scientists are working on not only how to cure HIV that helped confirm that HIV's cured. So big news there giving so many people lots of hopes watching happily.
