4:00 am
good morning, everyone. i'm alex witt. we have breaking news overnight. an egypt air, flight 804 is missing. the french president convened an emergency cabinet meeting to discuss the situation, and he spoke to media following that meeting, and said it is his belief that this plane has crashed. he also vowed to provide egypt with any military assistance it may need. it disappeared from radar shortly after reaching egyptian, flying at 37,000 feet. on board, 56 passengers, including three children with seven crew members and three security personnel. the passengers are from 12 different countries, a large
4:01 am
portion french and egypt. greek and egyptian rescue drews. in the areas of the last location. the airbus, maker of the missing plane, released a statement that saith our concerns go to all those affected. airbus will make further factual information available as soon as the details have been confirmed and cleared by the authorities for release. joining me from london is kelly, good morning to you. what's the latest in the search? >> good morning, alex. still nothing official from the egyptian civil air authority ministry. we're waiting for a press conference within the next half hour. we hope. but we have heard from french president francois hollande who was speaking to reporters in the last half hour and essentially confirmed that flight 804 has
4:02 am
crashed. the information we have gathered, ministers, members of government and the egyptian authorities confirm sadly that the plane has crashed. he says it is lost. he was asked if terrorism could be a factor, when asked that question. he said it could be a terrorist hypothesis, but nothing should be ruled out. we should express our solidarity to the families and identify out the cause. the paris prosecutor has opened an investigation already, and we're getting this report from reuters. i should caution, nbc news has not confirmed this. reuters citing the greek defense minister, saying the aircraft, when it was at 37,000 feet, made sudden swerves, again, it is not confirmed. we're trying to contact the greek defense minister.
4:03 am
there have been conflicting reports coming out about the disappearance of this flight. so extreme caution on that particular report. the search and rescue continues in this stretch of mediterranean, eastern mediterranean sea, about 170 north of t auto egyptian coastline, planes, boats, helicopters at this point and the french also offering their assistance. hollande insisting we need all resources at hand to find this plane, to find what is left. find the debris, and figure out what happened. alex. >> yeah, kelly, we should say that it is just past 1:00 p.m. there, so he certainly they're doing the search and rescue operation in broad daylight. i also was told that tegyptian transportation ministry will be holding a press conference.
4:04 am
francois hollande made an official state. it has been a convoluted night. >> it has, we've had several different reports from egypt air, from the aviation authority as well, from egyptair citing different government agencies, for example, about the official word that the plane had crashed. that was then retracted. we had a report from egyptair citing different government officials that an emergency beacon or some sort of signal was received two hours after the plane disappeared. that was then retracted. egyptian army said we have not received a signal. now we have french president hollande saying look, judging from what we have in front of us, it is clear the plane has in fact crashed, and all that's left is to find the debris. so far, alex, no sign of the
4:05 am
debris. >> thank you so much for that. well, as americans are waking up of the missing plane, so are the country's political leaders. donald trump taking to twitter to comment on the missing airline, posting looks like yet another terrorist attack. airplane departed from paris. when will we get tough, smart and vigilant. great hate and sickness. late last night, as donald trump's coverage of his past with women, the presumptive nominee made a bombshell accusation against bill clinton. >> how big an issue should that be in the are they going to interview kathleen willy, in one case, it's about exposure, in another, groping and fondling and touching against a women's will. >> and rape. >> and rape. >> settlements, massive settlements. >> $850,000 with paula jones. >> and lots of other things. >> that instance of rape, cited
4:06 am
by trump, was originally made by one of the women he named, juanita broderick. she told breitbart the times should invest its time in -- she filed an affidavit saying there was no assault regarding the former president and later, recanted that statement. clinton campaign spokesperson, nick meryl, issued this response, saying quote, trump is doing what he does best. attacking when he feels wounded, and dragging the american people through the mud for his own gain. it's not surprising that after a week of still refusing to release his taxes and like inning oakland and ferguson to the dangers of iraq, of course he wants to haj the subject. this comes at the tail end of a wild day for him. katy tur has more. >> another headliner from donald trump. not yet the officialnami, but already unveiling his supreme court picks. a conservative dream team. a play to win over trump
4:07 am
skeptics, including utah judge, thomas lee, brother of senator mike lee, who endorsed ted cruz. texas judge don willett, who repeatedly mocked trump on twitter, calling him darth trump. ex-wife of conservative never trump radio host, charlie sykes. >> i don't believe anything he says, but she would be an outstanding choice. >> republican insider, he is serious, leading with foreign poli policy icon henry kissinger. and those who take campaign cash as corrupt. >> me oor, i'm self-funding. >> he signed a joint fundraising agreement with the republican party. now, trump is work on rehabbing his image. making peace with megyn kelly over the words used in his twitter tirades. >> bimbo? >> well, that was a retweet. did i say that? >> many times.
4:08 am
>> okay, excuse me. >> sending out one of his most effective surrogating, daughter ivan ivanka, to push back on accusations in a new york times article. >> he is not a groper. that's not who he is. i've known him my whole life and he has total respect for women. >> that was katy tur reporting. democrats more fractured than ever. a national poll shows donald trump leading hillary clinton by three points. meanwhile, bernie sanders winning streak, while accusing the party of unfair treatment. andrea mitch andr andrea mitchell has more. >> the democratic party and its leader -- >> state after state, the people have stood up and helped defeat the establishment. >> this, after sanders big win in oregon and hillary clinton's apparent razor thin victory in
4:09 am
kentucky. but it's the growing split among democrats that's raising big questions about how they'll ever unite to defeat donald trump. >> a word to the leadership of the democratic party. open the doors, let the people in! >> clinton supporters want sanders to ratchet down his rhetoric. >> bernie has to focus on the issues that matter, and making sure that donald trump never sets foot in the oval office. >> hoping he'll fall in line once the primaries are over, as clinton did in 2008. sanders campaign manager, telling chuck todd they're fighting all the way to philadelphia. >> the senator has been very clear that we're going to go through the process and he is going to the convention. >> but vice-president down-playing it. >> i'm confident that bernie will be supportive if hillary wins, which the numbers indicate will happen. so i'm not worried. there is no fundamental split or anything in the democratic party.
4:10 am
>> nbc's andrea mitch i recall reporting there. let's go to bill karins. let's take a look what is going on in the mediterranean. >> yes, eliminate what could have happened and the search that's going on and weather conditions for that. this goes over the last 12 hours, the latest image here. it shows clear skies and where the plane was lost. no weather problems whatsoever. in case everyone -- the hoping of finding survivors, water temperatures, 68 to 71 degrees. about 12, 40 hours, big range, someone could last before hypothermia could set in. a block box, it is relatively shallow. air france went down, and that black box was found in 13,000 feet. it is a good possibility we'll be finding and hopefully find out what happened. as far as the weather goes, up in the northwest, storm system went through yesterday, numerous showers, northern idaho,
