7:03 am
the midwest and into the northeast, we could be talking about another chance to break record low temperatures before that warm-up happens. >> absolutely dylan. thanks so much. again, two inches. they just need two inches to break that record. again, the midwest has been hit hard by this. take a look at this video of why you should not be driving fast? this guy comes off the interstate near st. louis just so fast and, boy, what a mess. major damage. luckily nobody was injured really in this crash. let's show you what else is going on. this is the latest with the blue line that's the area of 32 degrees. this is the top of the rock camera. you can't see anything. i-95 philadelphia. more heavy snow coming down. we've got winter storm warnings advisories, and freezing rain advisories stretching from texas all the way to new england this morning. at 8:00 a.m. jackson, mississippi, winter weather advisories. ice amounts of 1/4 inch. sleet 1/2 inch.

7:07 am
years. should he have had more security? there was no metal detector at the door. and this alleged assailant got in despite previously reportedly attacking the japanese ambassador with a piece of concrete. >> yeah they're going to have to review those procedures and the injuries could have been a lot worse. >> absolutely. >> keir, thank you. big story in politics this morning. hillary clinton responding for the first time to this growing controversy over her use of a personal e-mail account as secretary of state. in a tweet late last night, she says she asked the state department to release her e-mails. she wants them to do that as soon as possible. andrea mitchell has more on all of it. andrea good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. two days a the controversy over her use of private e-mail first erupted, hillary clinton has given her first response on twitter as you say. but that still may not ensure some democrats about the way she handled this issue.
7:08 am
after clinton foundation owners hillary clinton tweeted at 11:35 p.m. i want the public to see my e-mail. i asked state to release them. they said they will review them for release as soon as possible. she did not address why she used a private e-mail system exclusively while secretary of state or registered it to her home. raising questions about whether her e-mails were properly archived. >> it's important to ensure that when official business is conducted on personal e-mail that those records are properly maintained and preserved. >> reporter: clinton aides say she turned over 55,000 panls last year to the state department but have not said whether she held anything back. and now the republican-led house committee investigating benghazi has subpoenaed all of clinton's relevant e-mails. >> i can't do what the house asked me to do which is write the final definitive report on
7:09 am
benghazi if i don't have all of her e-mails. >> reporter: wrote the committee that contrary to report clinton used only one personal e-mail address as secretary of state. then switched to a new address after leaving office. but why would she go to such lengths to avoid using government e-mail? one possible clue, this overheard conversation from 2001. >> reporter: adding to the mystery around the home server it was registered under an eric hotha many rks, the name of a former clinton aide. >> a personal e-mail server even if it's set up very well is going to be more vulnerable to hacking than a government server. >> reporter: they will review e-mails that clinton provided them to decide what to release but it will take some time. clinton defenders point out that jeb bush also used a private e-mail system when he was
7:10 am
governor of florida. but reporters say it will take more than one tweet to get past this episode. savannah? >> all right. andrea mitchell thank you. mark halperin has covered hillary clinton extensively. wrote about her in the book "game change" and is now editor of bloomberg politics. >> good morning. >> is this a passing shower? is it a squall? is it a cyclone? >> this is like boston's third of ten snowstorms going national. it's destructive, it's distracting, and you know you're going to get more. >> some people might say it's the political chattering class who's interested in this. real people aren't paying attention. you think that's true? >> people paying attention are democrat who is want hillary clinton to be president but terrified this shows the judgment she showed previously. not what will help her get elected. >> here's somebody who knows what it would be like to be under scrutiny to use a personal
7:11 am
e-mail account. even if there's nothing nefarious about it, it looks bad. >> it's a testament to how her aides are concerned about this. she's giving in to the republicans and to the press by releasing saying she's going to release some of these e-mails. she never gives in. no history. they know this is a big problem. they're hearing from the same democrats i'm hearing from who say this looks bad. while it might be an inside thing now, the public image while it might just be an inside thing now, the image of hillary clinton, this places all the worst things people thought about her over the years, secretive and playing by her own rules. talk about democrats' reaction. what about republicans? certainly hands them a lot of ammunition and breathes new life, perhaps, into the whole investigation into benghazi. >> what's the main reason that hillary clinton doesn't like to give in when republicans demand she release documents? because she knows all it does is whet their appetite for more. in this case, legitimate questions, reignite benghazi, more people in the media, i think, will be open to saying what was she not revealing about that but reignites the question, why did she turn some of her
7:12 am
private e-mails over to the government and not all of them? that question she doesn't address in her tweet last night, gonna have to address that. >> going to take more than a tweet then? >> going to take more than a tweet. she is going to have to talk. >> mark halperin, thanks so much. >> thank you. >> send it to matt. another day of dramatic testimony expected today at the trial of boston marathon bombing suspect, dzhokar tsarnaev, this after an opening day that featured the surprise admission from the defense, some graphic images of the attack and emotional testimony. nbc national correspondent, peter alexander, is in boston. peter, good morning. >> reporter: matt, good morning to you. punctuating that first day of what you describe was right as emotional testimony, some powerful accounts for the first time from boston bombing survivors facing the man that even the defense admits tried to kill them. when the bombs exploded two years ago, rebecca gregory, who lost a leg, remembers hearing her 5-year-old son repeatedly calling "mommy. mommy." on wednesday, she testified she was thinking, "god, if this is
7:13 am
it, take me, but let me know noah is okay." overnight, gregory wrote about her court appearance on facebook, posting in an open letter to her alleged attacker, hanks, "today, i looked at you right in the face and realized i wasn't afraid anymore. and today, i realized that sitting across from you was somehow the crazy kind of step forward that i needed all along." badly wounded college student sydney corkran also testified, saying, "i remember feeling i'm just going to sleep. it felt almost peaceful. i was fading fast." the long-awaited trial opened wednesday with tsarnaev's defense lawyer making a stunning admission, it was him. looking to spare tsarnaev's life, the defense looked to shift the blame to tamerlan, saying tamerlan who self-radicalized, but prosecutors disagree, adding that dzhokar pretended to be a spectator, had murder in his heart, adding he believed he was in a holy war against americans. prosecutors say dzhokar tsarnaev began reading terrorist writings
7:14 am

7:16 am
change its stop, search and arrest procedures, embrace community-based police and recruit higher and promote diverse officers. that, as federal prosecutors cleared former officer darren wilson, saying that he killed michael brown in self-defense, essentially, the same conclusion reached by a grand jury last fall. no comment from wilson, who previously told abc news -- >> the reason i have a clean conscience is because i know i did my job right. >> reporter: brown's parents say they are disappointed wilson won't face justice but their son's death won't be in vain if this sparks change across the country. ron allen, nbc news, ferguson. some good news out of washington, the budget battle is over, for now. president obama signed the department of homeland security appropriations act wednesday, funding the department through the fiscal year. the measure had been stalled because republicans wanted to use the legislation to reverse the president's executive action on immigration, but republicans relented and they were able to pass a clean funding bill. a superbug linked to tainted

8:05 am
resting during the duration of the chemotherapy, not touched by the toxic chemotherapy drugs and when the chemo is stopped, the drug has stopped, fertility is, therefore, preserved. >> what the studies show with fertility rates and pregnancy? >> the main outcome measure was this thing called ovarian failure, essentially an early menopause and they found that the treatment group, the whip who got zoladex, 8% of them were rendered infertile, as opposed to 22% in the control group. a flip side number to that is the number of successful pregnancies was 21% in the treatment group as opposed to 11% in the control group. both of those findings were statistically significant. this is wonderful for the women out there, premenopausal women candidates for getting this medicine, patients who are what we call hormone receptor negative, may have a chance to preserve fertility in a way not as invasive or expensive as traditional methods. >> great news. thanks, dr. aczar.

phenomenal writer. and i thought that the first season was just incredible dialogue and story and turns and kind of a rich subculture to kind of get into. and, you know, for me, it's a chance to go and play a very unique character, something that's dramatic and be a part of something that i think is really exceptional. >> movie's funny, "unfinished business" opens tomorrow in theaters. >> love vince vaughn. >> your guy. saying the "swinger" era of vince vaughn is your ultimate man. >> he is. he was. seriously. >> i like the "dodgeball" vince vaughn. >> of course you do. speaking of new comedies that are out tomorrow, the tina fey creation "unbreakable kimmy schmidt" hitting netflix about four women getting reacquainted with the world after 15 years in a cult. and guess who has a still star turn. take a look. >> thousands of dollars to the mole women fund. and we are so grateful, but honestly, we don't love that

8:33 am
remarkable story, hi kate. >> good morning. matt look at possible i now, never know what he has been through, a wonderful 13-year-old boy, ready to go back to school when he is well enough but getting here took years. >> bobby was a happy and healthy child. he was in the gifted program at school. and he played many sports. >> reporter: but at 9 years old, bobby started having stomach pain that grew worse and worse. >> a would eat, woe get these what is sive pains, double over and start crying. >> reporter: carrie and tom started eliminating foods from his diet to see if he would feel better. >> eventually ended up only eating blue berries and chicken, it was pretty drastic. >> rep bobby needed a feeding tube and that wasn't all. he had headaches, tremors. he was unable to control his body temperature. >> reporter: doctors figured out bobby had a system affecting systems in his body that should
8:34 am
be automatic, temperature regulation blood pressure digestion. >> really horrendous pain and i couldn't hold my head up more than ten minutes at a time. >> bobby's health deteriorated he was in a wheelchair and losing his vision. >> we bent from doctor to doctor trying to find answers. >> everyone really helped -- helped out. it took a toll on everybody. >> reporter: then another diagnosis, doctors said bobby had a disorder affecting the strength of his ligaments but even that didn't seem to explain all of his problems. from her home in florida, carrie started doing her own research online. >> and i talked to all different moms that had children with similar problems and learned from them and i started putting the pieces of the puzzle together. >> the whole time we are looking at some black pain never imagining that the problem could be another part of his body his brain. >> reporter: the internet led carrie to dr. harold with cohen children's medical center, hundreds of miles away in new
8:35 am
york. she sent him scans of her son's skull and spine. so when you see bobby's scans, do you know immediately what's going on? >> yes. we see that the brain is distorted. i knew that he could be helped by surgery. i knew that the chronic pain that he was in could be helped that we could change his life. >> reporter: bobby's ligament condition was affecting his brain. >> the ligaments holding the head on to the spine are too loose. that allowed the bone to be pushed backward into the brain and caused the pain and some of the neurologic problems he was having. >> reporter: in december bobby went to new york for a surgery the doctor invented. during the six-hour procedure, he realigned bobby's skull with his spine and then screwed it in place. >> when you look at the boss on you see that there is noing an lation. there's no distortion of the brain. >> the pipe is looks straight. >> completely straight. >> reporter: they expected bobby's pain to go away but even the doctor didn't expect what
8:36 am
happened next his stomach trouble, light headedness all those things controlled by the autonomic nervous system they got better too. >> all of a sudden he just started getting better and walking around. >> it felt up real. i couldn't believe it. >> to me it's a miracle. it really is a miracle. >> doctors can't say for certain why his gastrointestinal and other nervous systems got better but may be because the spine was impacting his brain stem which, of course controls all those bucss. the doctor wants to be clear they need more research on this but i think the thing that's so compelling about this story, guys is that his mother did all this research and would not take no for an answer until she found someone and that's ultimately what led to his recovery. just like yesterday, takes one trained eye to look at something and say, wait a minute no. >> has to do with your ligaments and your brain. who would have known? >> a mom would couldn't give up.
