7:03 am

donald trump now the first and only man who's theld presidency to face a felony conviction. there you see the verdict sheet filled out by a new york jury. seven men and five women. guilty on all 34 felony counts of falsifying business records as part of an illegal scheme to corrupt the 2016 election that made him president. this is the third time this year citizen jurors have held trump accountable. juries, ordinary people doing their duty. remarkably convicted felons can run for president, so this year, in this extraordinary time, american voters will be the ultimate jurors. we're going to cover the fallout of this unprecedented event. we start with aaron katersky at the courthouse in manhattan. good morning, aaron. >> reporter: george, good morning. this was an extraordinary trial and it is unlike any other in american history. we are expecting to hear from former president trump today here at trump tower after a guilty verdict that will now echo throughout this year's presidential election. this morning donald trump is a

7:04 am

convicted felon. a jury of 12 new yorkers found the former president guilty as charged of all 34 counts. the historic verdict marks the first time a former president has been convicted of a crime. manhattan district attorney alvin bragg said he simply did his job. >> while this defendant may be unlike any other in american history, we arrived at this trial and ultimately today at this verdict in the same manner as every other case that comes through the courtroom doors. by following the facts and the law and doing so without fear or favor. >> reporter: after five weeks of gripping testimony from 22 witnesses, the jury convicted trump of falsifying business records so voters wouldn't find out he paid hush money to stormy daniels. >> it's a culmination of a lot of the pressure that she's been under the last few years and the assaults really in the social

7:05 am

media realm upon her. just the fear of going through something like this and then coming to court and testifying for two days. there's a lot of emotion. >> reporter: the payment to daniels was meant to silence her claim of a sexual encounter with trump. he denied the tryst but prosecutors said he feared the story would sink his 2016 campaign. they called the subversion of democracy. the jury deliberated ten hours over two days and seemed prepared to go home before a dramatic turn in the courtroom. the judge was preparing to dismiss the jury for the day. then jurors signaled they had reached a verdict. trump, who had been joking and laughing with the defense attorney, suddenly rigid, stone faced, looking down as the jury read the verdict count by count. it took two minutes. trump shut his eyes and shook his head and lashed out as he left court. >> this is just a disgrace. we'll keep fighting. we'll fight until the end and we'll win. >> reporter: trump and his allies cast doubt on his conviction.

7:06 am

harnessing trump's political power and his grip on the republican party to rally around ahead of the election this fall. >> the real verdict is gonna be november 5th by the people. >> reporter: outside court the stunning conviction became a moment of celebration. star witness michael cohen, who the defense called the greatest liar of all time, hailed what he called an important day for accountability and the rule of law. cohen saying the truth always matters. trump's lawyers said there will be an appeal. >> as soon as we can appeal, we will. the process in new york, there's a sentencing and then we appeal there there. >> reporter: the sentencing hearing is july 11th, days before the republican national convention. the former president faces up to four years in prison. >> george: we are joined by the star witness, michael cohen. thanks for coming back. you were here sitting with us in march 2023. you predicted this outcome.

7:07 am

so you're not surprised. >> no, i'm not. next month, george, is when you and i sat down for that historic change in my life. that was july 1th of 2018 when i told you that my wife, my daughter, my son and my country have my first loyalty. this has been one heck of a journey in order to see this. >> george: how about that time in the courtroom? what was the toughest moment for you? >> i really didn't have a single moment that was tougher than the 21 hours they had me on the stand, whether it was on direct or on cross-examination. the whole thing was very tough. it was emotionally draining. you have to be perfect. i knew that any mistake that i made would be just -- it would become the topic of conversation that would just explode. and so i really just needed to stay focused. it wasn't easy with todd blanche.

7:08 am

he's a meanderer as it goes to questioning. >> george: he called you the greatest liar of all time. are you done lying? >> i want people to also remember, i take responsibility for what i did. but remember that the lie -- we have to remember what it was. it was the number of times that i claim to have spoken to donald about the failed trump tower moscow project. i stated three versus ten. i shouldn't have done it. i did it in coordination and at the direction of donald, ivanka. jared, ty cobb. there was a whole people involve in the creation of that document. i don't ignore my responsibility. i accepted it and in part went to prison for it. but i don't want people to think, you know, just because he lied about that, i didn't really think that it was all that material. but i took responsibility for it. >> george: you're done now? >> absolutely done. >> george: did you have any

7:09 am

moments in the courtroom where you actually had some kind of contact, communication with donald trump? >> only once. the rest of the time he had his eyes closed. he was slumped back, not sure whether he was sleeping or just resting his eyes, as he would say. but there was very limited interaction. not to mention where you sit, it's very difficult to see the defendant the way that the judge's box versus the witness box to see the defendant. it was more to the right. i had a better view to the left of me of the jury than i did of donald. >> george: i'm wondering what that was like for you. you spent years fighting for donald trump, bullying people for donald trump, even lying, as you just said, for donald trump, in coordination with his people. do you wish you'd never met him? >> i do. i do. this has been enormously difficult on my family more than anything. it's been hard on me. but as hard as it is on me,

7:10 am

watching my family suffer as a direct result of my actions and the misloyalty that i gave to donald, it's something that haunts me every day. >> george: how did you file when you heard that first guilty? >> i let out a, just a gasp of air. six years. remember, the first time that i met with the district attorney of new york's people, i was a prisoner in otisville. i was in my greens. they came back two more times after that. three times i met with da's from new york while i was at otisville. so this has been a long time coming for accountability. >> george: as you know, there are a lot of republican office holders including the speaker of the house who are saying this is a disgrace. they are still backing donald trump. what's your message to voters and republican politicians who are still considering voting for donald trump for president? >> i'm not sure how this makes

7:11 am

any sense. this is not just a felon, convict, but it's also a man who has openly stated he wants to rewrite the constitution on day one. he wants to be a dictator. not my words. his words. he wants to destroy our system of government. he wants to get rid of the judiciary and the legislative branch and confer all power to the executive branch, meaning himself, turning himself into a king. this country, for 259 years has followed one simple principle, democracy based on the constitution. he wants to rewrite it as if he could. it's just terrible. so how it is that he's still even in the running, why anybody would want to vote for somebody who is anti-democratic makes no sense to me. >> george: so the verdict is in. start of a new chapter for you. >> i have to figure it out. i'm really not even sure where to go.

7:12 am

don't forget, it's another year before i can even reapply for my law license. my business, i lost. banks, very difficult to work with. they certainly don't make it easy for people coming out to reintegrate into society. i'm a little more fortunate than the average, but it's still difficult, nonetheless. >> george: thank you for coming in today. >> great to see you again george. >> michael: thank you, george. let's go to chief white house correspondent mary bruce. mary the president has not commented. >> reporter: the president has not weighed in. but his campaign says no one is above the law. they are trying to walk a fine line. they want to take advantage of this politically but the biden campaign has also been careful not to celebrate this too much. they don't want to feed into trump's baseless narrative that this was somehow orchestrated by the president. instead, the biden campaign is hammering the point that while donald trump may be a convicted felon, he can still win in november. the campaign, in a somber

7:13 am

somewhat muted statement saying today's verdict does not change the fact that there is still only one way to keep donald trump out of the oval office, saying it is at the ballot box, adding convicted felon or not, trump will be the republican nominee for president. now, don't expect the biden campaign to completely up end its messaging because of this. i'm told they're going to continue to focus on what is at stake in this election, highlighting abortion rights. how much will his campaign lean into the conviction? biden has been largely silent on this trial. he is expected to comment on the verdict at some point. michael, he is back at the white house this morning. we'll see if he takes our questions. >> michael: mary bruce, thank you very much. one of the big questions, what will the verdict mean to voters? our political director rick klein joins us. good morning, rick. >> good morning, michael. this was a long trial with a lot of embarrassing developments for donald trump. but if anything, donald trump is stronger now than at the start of the trial. you see this narrow lead, donald

7:14 am

trump leading by about two points as of now. that said, there are trump voters who have said a verdict in this matter would make a big difference. this was from our poll from a couple weeks ago. we saw 80% of trump supporters say they would continue to support him no matter what. that would 20% that would reconsider or withdraw on conviction. that's one in five trump voters which is an enormous number in an election expected to be as close as this one. here's one example of how this plays out in practice. this is a poll from just a couple of weeks ago. just like most polls, a narrow trump lead if you look at the straight head to head, 44% to 40%. you ask people what if he's convicted you see trump support dropping by five points, biden's growing by three points. a much different race if you talk about conviction. bottom line is we are in unchartered territory. there's really no precedent for this. we've talked to some undecided voters say they are more firmly in biden's camp. even some who say this is

7:15 am

pushing them towards trump. we're not going to know. in an election this close, everything will matter. this clearly could be a huge development. george? >> george: let's bring in dan abrams and rachel scott. dan, let me begin with you. walk us through what kind of sentence donald trump will be facing. >> anything from no time to up to four year. we hear the term 34 counts. yes, it's true. but effectively for sentencing it's one count. it would all be served concurrently, at the same time. there's no way this would be happening consecutively. the real question would be, even if there is no jail time. most people expect no jail time. >> george: first time offender. >> low level felony. lowest level in new york state. the question becomes, okay, what about the possibility of home confinement? what about the possibility of community service? what about the possibility of probation? question two is when would it be served? it would likely happen after all the appeals. >> george: one other question on that. in florida convicted felons cannot vote until after they've served their sentence.

7:16 am

there's a quirk in the new york law that will allow donald trump to vote? >> florida law defers to the place where the conviction occurred. it occurred in new york so new york law applies. in new york, the only way you can't vote is if you are a felon currently serving time in prison so it won't prevent him from voting. >> george: rachel, remarkably, and yet predictably, republican politicians falling in line to support a convicted felon. >> donald trump has a tight grip on the republican party and the indictments didn't really matter for most of the republican party. neither does the conviction on all counts in this case. the speaker of the house, second in line to the presidency, who showed up outside that manhattan courthouse to show support for the former president calls this a shameful day, calling it a political exercise, not a legal one. even some of trump's toughest critics in the past, florida governor ron desantis, his former rival said the indictments sucked the air out of the republican primary, he blasted this verdict as did mitch mcconnell who has a very

7:17 am

icy relationship with donald trump. in a lot of ways the republican party is closer to the former president. >> george: what do we know about what trump is going to do next? >> the reality is the play book for trump remains the same. doesn't matter what the verdict was going to be. the trump campaign was going to fund raise off this, use it as a rallying cry. for a lot of trump's advisers, this is something that was unthinkable a year ago, the idea this case would even be brought to daylight. not alone would he be convicted on all 34 counts, donald trump is now faced with something we have never seen before in american history. he is going to be campaigning as a convicted felon. the question now, how does that settle with the american voters? >> george: completely unchartered waters. thank you both very much. rebecca? >> rebecca: coming up the friend who was with johnny wactor when the general hospital star was killed tells us about his last moments. >> michael: less than a year after the deadly submersible implosion, two men are going down to the titanic wreckage.

7:18 am

>> rebecca: the winner of the national spelling bee joins us. first we go to ginger. >> ginger: it's been just over two weeks since houston was smacked with those 80 to 100 mile winds that knocked out power. they're gonna get hit again in just minutes. it's over cyprus. severe thunderstorm warning with 60 mile per hour winds has already moved through college station. and just yesterday, midland texas had a land spout and tornado. both recorded. if it felt like it's been a busy may and busy season, you are correct. since 1990, this is the second most tornados that we have seen. we could add another one today, probably more like a monroe, louisiana, parts of greenville, mississippi or southeastern arkansas. your local weather in 30 seconds.

7:41 am

certified and would never have been. >> ocean gate could not be reached for comment. connor said they are designing a new, safer and certified submersible known as the explorer which will cost $13 million to $15 million. it will carry two people, have an acrylic hull and offer a near panoramic view. ready to go, guys? >> yeah. >> five years ago i went to the bottom of the atlantic ocean in a submersible similar. how confident are you this will work? >> very confident. but the moment we don't meet one standard the project is done. we will not compromise safety. >> are you afraid to go? >> i will not go anyplace or do any dives if i'm not 100% convinced that the submersible is safe. >> deep sea exploration carries risk. >> i don't think submersibles

7:42 am

should be abandoned for a similar accident. if you think about space travel, we lost an entire crew. but that tells us what we have done wrong in the past and how to get it right in the future. >> connor said if it passes all the safety requirement, the explorer which won't be ready until at least the summer of 2026 will make three trips. two for scientific research and one to view the titanic wreckage. >> george: thank you, will. coming up how one kidney donation saved three lives and created an extended family. it's an abc news exclusive. and next the winner of the scripp's national spelling bee as our play of the day. and start getting automatic deals.
