Elizabeth thank you for joining us this morning all of more on notre down in a minute but now to the urgent search for eighteen year old woman described as armed and dangerous.

Threat to a specific school investigators say eighteen year old sole parties traveled to the Denver area from South Florida purchased the gun in.

President drugs legal team is putting the finishing touches on a rebuttal that they plan to put out shortly after the Mueller report is released tomorrow. President fired off another tweet yesterday again declared no collusion and no obstruction. But sources say White House advisors are concerned about what else the report might reveal ABC's Brett milky has more. It as attorney general William Barr has of course summarize what's in Robert Muller's report but. Let's be clear here no one outside of a small circle has actually read the thing well that'll changes tomorrow. For nearly two years the White House focuses late on the legal side make sure everyone's on the right side of the law once the investigation wrapped up the focus won't. To the perception decide how do we respond. To the information that is now out there for everyone to see so what is the game plan for the big day. I asked ABC's Catherine folders what she's hearing from her sources in the White House. Well liked so the White House and the president everybody still. Uncertain about what exactly is going to be in this report but that regardless of that Brad there preparing a robust response so we'll see. A lot of that PR from the White House what I'm told is that. Bye bye sources in the White House that the president he's likely to read the full of redacted 400 page report but what's likely to happen. Is White House advisors will go through the report bill briefed the president. And then we'll see a statement from the White House perhaps more measured. In tone. Likely from Sarah Sanders now after that there is expected to be a TV blitz you may see. Some folks from the White House going on TV defending the president and reacting to a report as well. Cute all the skies even if William Barr did reflect Robert wilders findings accurately. There is concern in the White House that there could be details here the world has never seen before even in this for directed report.

Us this morning health officials in Michigan say they found the man responsible for spreading the life threatening measles virus to dozens of people. They're acting it out I think that has to chart that EEK that we have are all related huge New York. According to the Washington Post the unidentified patient zero was reportedly misdiagnosed by doctors twice during a road trip from New York to Michigan last month his cold like symptoms initially thought to be bronchitis. And by the time the mistake was realized 39 people in Detroit had already caught the highly contagious disease and health officials finally tracked the man down and told him what happened he was clearly upset. The head of Oakland county's emergency services telling the post he put his head down and was very emotional. I could tell from the look on his face that he was devastated. He was doing the math in his head counting all the people he'd been in contact with but those sickened in Detroit are just a fraction of a nationwide outbreak that has infected 555. People across when he State's with more than two thirds of those cases from New York Cologne. Despite our best efforts this outbreak is not going away. If anything is now accelerating much as we feared need we wait for someone to die. Health experts in Rockland county New York are struggling to debunk vaccine mitts and taking drastic measures to curb the spread including a 2000 dollar per day fine for anyone who knowingly goes out in public when their infected with measles. We have seen multiple hospitalizations including an infant and even a premature birth. Who was by measles and infant.

We've been following me I'm dying of support for notre drama on social media once you've been seeing. Yeah Tribune so still pouring and people still responding I'm into this tragic fire Libya's. Amazing to say how much an emotional connection so many people around the woes seem to house. On this building and that's reflective I think in the share scale. Owed to nations that the touch has had recently mist net to book was begun talking about is three of France's wealthiest families. French. Power house families and companies have pledged hundreds of millions. Of dog says the companies behind a four under mean weak tone Hennessy. They have pledged hundreds of millions Dulles because. There are fans not that it could take action is and yes possibly even decades. To restore the fatal to its form. Glory president McCord said yesterday that he hopes.

Handmade Coleman's warning that it cannot she take. Decades. To bring the not Saddam back. Two of police are functioning state does a number of reasons for not there is. The sourcing of material of course precious materials and big there's big and convenes at how to be completely. Replaced a holiday gonna get mad there's also into something we mentioned that I Brad is not. The operation to festival studying what the damages day is going to be like can assess what has to be replaced and renovated as. Akin to excavation because people have to Kathleen sift standard debris to see what kind of fragile materials may be salvaged. It's it's fascinating there is. The chief executive.

And of course there is beautiful stained glass windows. The suffering from some real shock how to know how delicate they now how. Tenure says the operation to. And restore and protect them and of course how is that how does the cathedral going to be brought to modern safety standards to trying to insure about such a project.

On Venice when he's claiming this is a major victory he has been of course on the board he's been in Colombia he's been.
