ready to take our concert stage today friday june 22nd, 2012. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and ann curry, live from studio 1, a in rockefeller plaza. >> welcome to today friday morning. i'm matt lauer. >> i'm ann curry. >> country superstar knows how to put on a show. his fans have been lined up for blocks this morning in the heat and they are waiting to see him. we will deliver on that promise a little later in the morning. there's a lot of news to get to this morning. we begin this morning with jerry sandusky. the fate of the former penn state assistant football coach is now in the hands of the jury.
he's accused of sexually assaulting 10 boys over a 15-year period. plus a bombshell. the reason jerry sandusky's son was ready to testify for the prosecution, he says he, too, was molested by sandusky when he was a foster child in that home. it is something the 33-year-old denied until now. nbc's national correspondent michael isikoff has been covering the trial and joins us now. michael, what have you learned about what jerry sandusky's son was prepared to testify for the prosecution? >> reporter: good morning, ann. what we do know, matt sandusky was actually in the courtroom in the trial sitting as a supporter of his father. then he listens to the testimony of victim four, the first witness in the case who describes a shower scene with both him, jerry sandusky and matt sandusky and matt sandusky becomes nervous during that
shower scene. something registered, something clicked with matt sandusky, because right after that he contacted a lawyer who contacts prosecutors to say, yes, information relevant to the case and is willing to testify on behalf of the prosecution. an extraordinary turnaround. so initially it was more what matt sandusky witnessed, what he saw. then yesterday we get this statement from the lawyer saying that he's representing matt sandusky as a, quote, victim of jerry sandusky's abuse, so he's going further. what precisely that abuse was, we still don't know, because obviously he didn't testify. but clearly matt sandusky having lived in that home for so many years knows a lot, witnessed a lot, could be a very crucial witness. >> you talk about this, but the jury presumably has not heard about any of this. what legal impact could this new allegation have, michael?
>> reporter: well, look, immediately none. not on this case because he never testified. but for starters, if for any reason there's a deadlocked jury here and there has to be a retrial, clearly matt sandusky would be a major witness in any retrial. then again, beyond that there's civil suits down the road, endlessly, having the son testify against the father would be powerful evidence, powerful witness for the civil lawyers. and there's ongoing investigations, both at the state and federal level into jerry sandusky, the relationship with second mile, with penn state university. matt sandusky lived in the home for all those years and could provide very valuable testimony in those inquiries. >> all right. a dramatic new development in this case. michael isikoff, thank you so much. it is now 7:04. now, here is matt. >> ann, thank you. one person who has been following the sandusky case very closely is a man named travis
weaver. weaver is the first alleged victim to come forward and tell his story on television. he wasn't a witness in the current trial but he did testify in a grand jury. he sat down with kate snow for a rock center exclusive. kate joins us this morning. kate, how are you? >> reporter: good morning. travis struggles telling what happened to him. in a lengthy interview he said sandusky abused him over 100 times over four years starting in 1992 when he was just four years old. >> if jerry sandusky was sitting right here. >> i would punch him in his mouth. >> would you say anything first? >> no. there would be no reason to say anything. he knows what he did. i know what he did. >> travis weaver said he thought he was the only one with a story about jerry sandusky until he saw sandusky on the news arrested on charges he molested other boys. weaver, now 30, had never told a soul. but last fall he told his family his story for the first time.
he says he still feels numb. >> you don't cry about it now? >> no. >> when is the last time you cried about it? >> a long time ago. >> weaver says he first met jerry sandusky through the second mile charity as a 10-year-old in a 9 1992. he said sandusky immediately took an interest in him, taking him to football games, inviting him to work out at the gym at penn state campus and to sleepovers at the sandusky home. >> i stayed at his house probably over 100 times. >> after dottie sandusky cooked dinner for everyone, weaver says he would go down to the basement and wait, knowing that as soon as the rest of the family went to bed, sandusky would come down. >> you know, he'd come down and talk to me, try to play a video game a little bit or play pool or something. you know, he'd work his way up to it. >> and you'd know he was going to expect sexual acts. >> yes. >> why do you think his family
thought you were there? >> i don't know. i never asked. >> did they treat you like one of the family? >> the rest of the kids did. but dottie, i don't think she really liked me too much. she was always like distant. she didn't really want to talk to me too much. i always thought she was a mean person just because of how she acted towards me. she never really wanted to talk to me. when she did talk to me, she was just real stern with everything i said to her. >> cold? >> cold, yes. >> did she ever walk in on you, see anything inappropriate? >> no. no, she didn't. >> do you think she had any idea what was going on, in your opinion? >> i can't say for sure, but i mean, how could you not know something was going on. >> it's almost an unbelievable story. >> yeah.
i was scared to say anything. >> because you thought no one would believe you. >> yes. >> was this a guy, in your opinion -- a guy who thought he would never get caught? >> yes. yes. i don't think the thought ever even crossed his mind. >> weaver is now suing sandusky, second mile, and penn tate university. >> one of the things jerry sandusky's attorney has said again and again is that he believes people came forward later in order to cash in. >> that's ridiculous. why would all these kids that never even met each other all have the similar, if not the exact same story about what he did and go in court and go to trial and testify in front of all these people about all this stuff that happened if it never happened.
it's absurd. >> what his lawsuit really is about, weaver says, is finally finding his voice. you're speaking out, you said to me, because you want other kids out there to know it's okay to speak out. >> yes, it is okay to speak out. >> this stuff is really uncomfortable to talk about? >> it's extremely uncomfortable. feel better once you start talking about it to people, letting everybody know what happened. >> people are going to feel for you deeply when they hear your story. they are going to want to know you're okay now, that you're getting help. can you be okay? >> yeah. i'll be okay when he's in prison. >> again, weaver has been talking to authorities since last fall. he was not called as a witness in the current trial in pennsylvania. instead he's part of a group of men who came forward more recently. they are sort of waiting in the wings ready to testify in court
if this current criminal trial does not end up in a guilty verdict. jerry sandusky's attorney in state college, by the way, matt, had no comment, nor did the attorneys -- we weren't able to reach the attorneys representing jerry sandusky in the civil case with travis weaver. >> before you go. we hear matt sandusky, the first foster child and then adopted child of jerry sandusky was prepared to tell the story of abuse. there was a possibility that jerry sandusky might want to adopt travis weaver. >> in fact he asked travis weaver's father, and his father verifies this, he asked to adopt travis weaver after years of abuse, asked to adopt him. so there may be parallel there. >> kate snow, thanks very much. now to ann. thanks. now to the latest on george simds-of- zimmerman, the florida native charged in the shooting death of unarmed teenager trayvon martin. evidence released in the case, both sides speaking out.
kerry sanders has more from sanford, florida. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. they are pouring over the audiotape, which includes a re-enactment by george zimmerman the night he shot trayvon martin. what do they reveal? for the last 24 hours, the re-enactment video has been viewed, dissected. depending on who is reviewing the 19-minute re-enactment, it's either proof the neighborhood watch captain did nothing wrong. >> it's the story on the videos, which he was doing what he thought he should do that night prosecutor off proof of nothing at all. >> trayvon martin isn't here to tell his version of what happened. we've got george zimmerman version and objective evidence. objective evidence shouldoit weigh that. >> reporter: the day he shot and
killed trayvon martin, police brought him back to the scene, with bandages visible on the nose and the back of his head, zimmerman told investigators he told martin, first in his car, then on foot, until he lost the teenager. then without warning, they were face-to-face. >> said you've got a problem? i turned around and said, i don't have a problem, man. >> reporter: zimmerman told investigators martin approached him and punched him in the face and got on top of him and started smashing his head on the sidewalk. >> i thought my head was going to explode and i thought i was going to lose consciousness. >> reporter: zimmerman said as he struggled to get free, martin spotted this 9 millimeter pistol on his right hip. >> looked at it and said you're google to die tonight [ bleep ]. he reached for it. i saw his hand going down to my side. i reached for the firemen and shot him one time. >> reporter: not just re-enactment, video of him
talking to police. a statement written by zimmerman, audio from hours of talking to george zimmerman and challenging. >> as far as 25 and 30 punches, i've consult add lot of people. it's not quite consistent with your injuries. >> reporter: the audio reveals early on the police raised the issue of profile profiling. >> you know you're going to come under a lot of scrutiny over this. the profiling. had this person been white, would you have felt the same way? >> yes. >> okay. gotta ask that. >> like i said, this child has no criminal record whatsoever. good kid. a mild mannered kid. >> reporter: then again a few minutes later. >> you've got problems with black people? >> no. >> okay. had to ask. >> reporter: the defense team says video re-enactment supports self-defense but also acknowledged there's a long way to go. >> talk about plea negotiations you, we've had none of that yet.
>> you say yet. >> i've been doing this for 30 years. i don't think i've ever had a case where somebody doesn't mention plea negotiations. we'll see what happens. >> reporter: george zimmerman remains in jail here at solitary confinement. a hearing for bond is set for next friday. ann. >> all right. kerry sanders this morning. kerry, thanks. it is now 7:14. once again, here is matt. >> all right, ann. thank you very much. it was a video that knaussiated a lot of us, middle school boys brutally taunting an elderly monitor on their school bus. now some of the bullies are saying i'm sorry. nbc's craig melvin in rochester, new york, with more on this. craig, good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning to you as well it has been a whirlwind of a week for her and the boys that harassed her on the bus behind me. crime has gone from victim to spokesperson for civility. the boys have gone from disgustingly mean to, as you mentioned, saying i'm sorry.
>> you don't have a family -- >> reporter: when they were done taunting, cursing and threatening karen klein, one of them online posted it online. more than 2 million have watched the 13 years old bully their 68-year-old bus monitor. now, three of the four boys and their parents are apologizing. in statements released through police, one student writes, "i am so sorry for the way i treated you. when i saw the video i was disgusted and could not believe i did that. i will never treat anyone this way again. a parent says, quote, i would like it if he could do some work for you or help you in some way. i'm embarrassed, angry and sad about the awful way he treated you. the same video that's triggered so much anger and disbelief has sparked nearly as much compassion and generosity.
>> i saw what those kids did to you and it nearly had me in tears. i want you to know how many people are here for you. >> reporter: letters, calls, and flowers have poured in. some of the support is emotional but much of it has been financial. >> never have we seen a campaign raise this much money this quickly in less than 36 hours. >> reporter: more than 21,000 strangers have logged onto indiegogo, a website to raise money for different causes they raised $140,000 to go on a dream vacation and hopefully retire. at a news conference school officials said they were investigating, while they wouldn't give specific promises, strong disciplinary action. police say bullies are being harassed. >> their families, brothers and sisters threatened. >> criminal charges unlikely, partly because klein doesn't
want to prosecute. she wants a private meeting inside. >> i want to find out they really realize how serious it is and why. i want to know why they had to do that, why they don't respect elders. >> reporter: now, karen klein says she also doesn't want to see those boys expelled or suspended but would like to see them banned from riding the school bus for at least a year and also not allowed to participate in team sports. matt. >> craig melvin in rochester, new york, this morning. craig, thank you very much. let's hope this is a story that has been talked about in a lot of households this week and will continue to be talked about this coming weekend. >> let's get a check of the rest of the top stories from natalie morales. >> good morning, matt, everyone. investors on edge this morning after thursday was one of the worst days this year on wall street. the dow plunged 251 points amid worries about the u.s. economy. most troubling, moody's
downgraded credit ratings of 15 of the world's major banks including bank of america, jpmorgan chase and citigroup. courtney reagan at the new york stock exchange. good morning. >> good morning to you, natalie. stocks fell early on thursday on concerns about the health of the global economy. adding stealth to wall street moody's made good on its promise and downgraded 15 local financial institutions, including five of the six largest u.s. banks. the lower credit ratings now mean higher borrowing costs and lower trading revenue for those impacted. elsewhere, however, drivers could be getting some relief with oil prices below $80 a barrel, lower prices at the pump may not be far behind. natalie, back to you. >> courtney reagan at the new york stock exchange, thank you. a violent standoff in afghanistan has ended this morning after a team of taliban insurgents stormed a popular hotel north of kabul. at least 20 people were killed and dozens of civilians were taken hostage.

obama girls. >> that's right. the president and first lady have kept them largely off limits over the last several years. but now with the election about five months away, malia and sasha are stepping forward a little bit. are they a good way to connect with voters? we're going to have more on that coming up. oftentimes we joke about the fashion police. in great britain they're no laughing matter especially at the royal ascot races. we're going to tell you all about that coming up. we begin this half hour with a serious story, our exclusive interview with madonna badger, the woman who lost her children and parents in that house fire on christmas morning. almost immediately after the tragedy, authorities said they believe ashes from the fire place started that fire after they were placed in a paper bag by her boyfriend, michael borcina, madonna badger has serious questions about that explanation. >> your relationship now with michael. i know friends of yours or some people in your life asked you how you could still have a
relationship with him, how you could be near him, quite frankly. >> right. >> how do you answer that question? >> the answer for me is that we were in the fire together. we were in the fire. we spent the last night on earth with my three children and mom and dad and it was beautiful. >> there's another reason as well, and it may surprise you. >> i don't believe that the ashes caused the fire, so i don't believe mike is responsible for starting the fire. >> why doesn't she believe the ashes caused the fire? for one thing, she knows the source of that theory. it was her in the hospital on the morning of the fire when she spoke to a city fire official. >> i was begging him, where are my babies? where are my mom and dad? what has happened? where are my children? he said, well, let me just ask you a question. how do you think the fire was started?
i'm like what? like, you know - i said, you know, it must have been the ashes. there must have been embers. it must have been the ashes, because -- >> that's the only thing you could think of at the time, seemed like the logical -- >> yes. but meanwhile i'm not saying -- i'm saying it must have been the ashes. i'm literally hysterical. >> do you think that became the entirety of the investigation? do you think they just said, okay, it was those ashes? >> what do you think? >> do you think it could have been something else? >> yes. >> she comes by her scepticism honestly. it's how she was raised. >> we used to call my dad, mr. safety man. >> her father, in retirement a department store santa, had worked more than 25 years as a corporate safety manager. >> i mean, he changed the
batteries in my fire alarms every year for me. he and my mom both were incredibly safety conscious. my mother owned an electrical contracting company in louisville, kentucky. she and i would walk through the house and look at the wiring and go downstairs and look at the electrical boxes. >> they all knew her home in connecticut needed plenty of work. >> the electrical system in the house was from the '40s or something. so i was making that house safe. that's what i thought. >> she says she had the whole house rewired. she installed fire extinguishers and, of course, smoke alarms. and yet -- >> as you woke up choking, madonna, because of the smoke, did you hear smoke detectors, smoke alarms, anything going off in that house? >> no, nothing. it was silent. it was the scariest silence. >> she also wants to know why
she saw what she saw after she climbed out of the window. >> i ran to the edge of my house, and i looked down to the left. there i saw a little bit of flame but mostly just sparks, sparks, sparks everywhere coming out of a window. it was in the back right-hand corner. it was near where the electricity goes into the house where the meter is. >> even in her grief, she began to ask questions. >> so how is it that you have a little bit of ashes cause this enormous fire that spreads so quickly with so much smoke that the fire and smoke alarms did not go off? how is it they don't save those alarms? how is it because alarms can be tested after the fact. that's what you do in a fire investigation. that's what i've been told. >> a forensic investigation.
>> exactly. none of those things happened, because nobody knows where any of the pieces are. >> nobody knows, because the day after the fire city officials had her house torn down. >> after the funeral, i had an interview with police. the first question they asked me was why did you have your house torn down. >> and you said? >> i said, i didn't have my horse torn down. what are you talking about? you know. they said, well, we were told you had your house torn down. i was like no. then i asked them if they could help me get anything out of the house, that i wanted to know where my things were that were in the house that might have -- >> been salvageable. >> they said, we'll find out. so within a three- or four-day
period, they brought a bag of stuffed animals, black contractor bag stuffed animals. >> that was it. >> that was it. >> in his official report, the state's attorney concluded the fire was most likely caused by the disposal of fireplace ash. but he also wrote, regrettably the structure was demolished before the state fire marshall's office or any other expert could make an independent examination and determination. the state's attorney decided not to file any charges related to the fire. but madonna badger says she won't stop asking until all her questions are answered. >> is it imperative for you to answer those questions for lily, grace, and sarah and your parents? >> absolutely. to honor them with the truth, you know. i believe they deserve that. >> and if the truth is that a
bag filled with ashes from a fireplace set their house on fire, that's okay too, in terms of an answer? >> i mean, absolutely. i have to live with them being gone every single day. the cause of that fire is important for me to know in order to somehow find some peace. >> the city of stamford, connecticut, declined to address specific questions madonna badger raises citing the possibility of future lawsuits. stamford's legal counsel says the city's actions were consistent with its obligations to protect life and property. let's get of the check of the weather now from al. >> announcer: today's weather brought to you by american cancer society, the official sponsor of birthday. looking ahead toward our weekend, we can show you that we're watching the trop ibs, 70%

the first daughters are typically shielded from the public spotlight but lately we have heard a lot about them, on the campaign trail. >> i want my daughters to have the same opportunities as your sons. >> reporter: during serious moments like the president's endorsement of same-sex marriage last month. >> malia and sasha, they have friends whose parents are same-sex couples. >> reporter: just this week the first lady got emotional while talking about them in colorado. >> that is what i think about every night when i tuck my girls in. i think about the world i want to leave for them. and nor all of our sons and daughters. i think about how i want to do for them, what my dad did for me. >> reporter: so are the president's references careful campaign calculation, political analysts say intentional or not, the mention could resonate to key voters. >> the fact he's pitching to women voters is a big reason he's been talking so much about his daughters in the campaign so far and will continue to do so.
>> analysts also say the obama girls humanize their dad who has at times been criticized as being aloof. presidential historian doris kearns goodwin knows malia and sasha are the youngest white house residents since john john and caroline kennedy. >> we've had young families in the white house, whether it was abraham lincoln, jfk, there was a merriment in the white house of vitally and the country responded to presidents even more. >> adult children can be just as powerful on the trail. >> as you can tell, this is a family affair. >> reporter: mitt romney often seen as robotic has turned to his five sons to help show off his lighter side. >> true or false your dad's hair is chiselled out of imported african mahogany. >> that is true. >> true. okay. >> reporter: personalized accounts that can open a window into their parents' character, a window which might otherwise remain closed. the spotlight can be harsh. as a mother of five sarah palin
reached many soccer moms, but also faced scrutiny for her daughter bristol's teen pregnancy and first daughters going back to amy carter have struggled growing up in the public eye. still analysts say, the benefits likely outweigh any potential downside. >> people very much understand politics is a family business and they expect to see and get to know the family because after all they're going to have the first family in their lives too and in their living rooms for the next four years. >> analysts also point out that today's media saturated world plays a big role in all this, things like facebook and twitter. voters expect to get an up close look inside a candidate's life. ann. >> all right. kristen welker this morning, thanks. >> coming up next, the wild outfits and serious fashion police at the royal ascot races coming up right after this. from the first ever hands-free dispenser, and micro-climate controls powered by twinchill™ technology,

have that choice. it's better to have gone out the way i did. >> didn't have sponsorships they do now. >> they were there, we just couldn't take advantage of them. michael has a big play -- when i look at the times he's done the olympic games in athens, winning six gold medals, he was continually improving. in baseball terms, he was in a little slump over the hass several years but i would never bet against him. >> we look forward to hearing more from you, mark spitz. >> what a great honor. olympic swimming trials starting monday 8:00, 7:00 central time on nbc. additional coverage throughout the week on nbc sports network. now a check of the weather. >> well, believe it or not, yes, we are now well into summer, and we have rain on the way. getting some drizzle, a steady drizzle right at the coast this morning, but the showers still holding off for now. about 44 minutes away from
places like santa rosa, 56 minutes away from novato, and then we'll get some very light pesky showers throughout the day today. we're not expecting a whole lot. temperatures will remain cool, 71 in redwood city. we'll stay cool all weekend long. >> next, hang on for the brand-new transformers ride. really hang on, kenny chesney takes to our concert stage.

i said you do? she said oh, my goodness, yes. i think he's great. >> you are the one who actually drove her to the meeting where she fled where she would meet the person who took her to him. did she talk about how long she was gone. >> margaret, i'll only be gone three months. just a little trip, i'll be back. it dawned on me she might never be back. >> she was going off with whitey bulger. she told you that. >> yes. >> grew up in boston, i grew up in boston for a while. the name whitey bum ger. you said that name, people stopped. knowing your sister was on the run with him had to be pretty shocking. >> you have to understand, jimmy wasn't just -- we knew him. he came to my house. he came to my mother's house.
he did all kinds of nice things for my family. he was a gentleman at all times with us. >> clearly some people watching now. gentleman yet who is accused of participating in some way in 19 murders. >> yes. >> so this is a dr. jekyll mr. hyde thing. >> i have no idea. i did not think he had done that. i did not think he had murdered 19 people. >> margaret admitted to authorities in the year after her sister fled the two spoke on the phone several times. but she says that was it. the next 15 years, no contact whatsoever. she had absolutely no idea what happened until 2011 with bulger and grieg's capture. >> she said even in hiding her sister went out of her way to help strangers. >> on occasion she did nice things for people.
>> very nice things. >> if they saw a family that didn't have anything, they would drop off clothes and leave. again, dr. jekyll and mr. hyde. >> things normal people wouldn't do. there was a little boy, i forget the town, that was suffering terrible because he had to have glasses. nobody had the money to bring him the glasses. she took him for glasses. >> greig may have been kept in the dark about the specifics of why they were hiding according to richard lane the family's attorney. >> jimmy bulger is not the type of guy that would compare notes with his girlfriend or partner. >> if i was were accused of something, i think if i were to pick up and take off and disappear for 17 years, people would assume i did it. >> if you stayed around and said let's work with this, that's being naive, i think, very much naive. >> i think that the situation of going and hiding, people think, they assume that you have a reason to run off and hide.
>> good point. i feel like you don't understand that she is a good person. >> i never met her. >> right. i sense that from you. i'm sorry. but she is being -- it's a conspiracy almost. it's crazy. it's simply crazy. >> do you understand from the public's point of view, a woman who stays with one of the most wanted people in the country for 16 years, a guy who is accused of 19 murders, that people aren't going to say she had a chance to do the right thing and she didn't do it. >> she's been accused. >> a chance to do the right thing and turn him in and let him have his day in court. >> i understand that, but she is my sister and i love her. i will always be behind her. >> what don't we know about your sister that you think is imperative for us to know. >> i mean, she is a very intelligent, loving lady.
i don't think they know that or they don't believe it. >> margaret's twin sister katherine has filed a notice of appeal for the eight-year prison sentence. james whitey bulger is set to stand trial this coming november. >> it's going to be hard for a sister to reconcile all that. >> yeah. you have a twin. she disappears for 16 years and you know she's off with this person who is accused of these horrific things. there's no question that certainly has a major impact on your family. >> living with that secret, too. >>l be back tright after this. we'll be back right after this.
