7:02 am
hello. katie couric. >> matt lauer. >> glad to meet you. >> this is the first time katie's not back to the show but back to co-host in a decade. >> i know. it's really exciting. i'm so happy to see all of my friends, to see everyone in tv land. does it feel like -- i like that, matt. >> it's great. we'll look back and look ahead. >> i'm happy to help out for savannah. so happy with her with her new baby charlie, so cute. >> we've got a lot to get to this morning. i want to start with breaking news, that search for the gunman who opened fire on a new year's celebration at a popular nightclub in istanbul. nbc's richard engel is there. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we spoke to an american who survived the attack which took place in that nightclub down this street. he said when the gunman opened fire those who could escape did,
7:03 am
others tried to hide or just drop to the floor and pretend to be dead. isis has claimed responsibility for this, the first terrorist attack of 2017. a drag net has been set up across turkey to find the terrorist who rampaged through one of istanbul's ritzy nightclubs on new year's eve killing 39, and injuring dozens. among the injured american jake raak, a defense contractor from pennsylvania. he was recovering at a hospital this morning from a gunshot wound. >> i was shot in the hip. the bullet travelled to my knee and lodged in my knee. probably the luckiest person in the whole thing. i find myself fortunate. i was with dying people, seven of us were shot. >> reporter: he was among hundreds at the club reina popular with 14 tourists, a lone gunman stormed in around 1:00 a.m. >> somebody said there were shots fired and i did not
7:04 am
believe it. and till i saw the gunman. started shooting up the place. rfrnlts as the gunman moved victim to victim, raak dove under a bench, pretended to be dead as the terrorist stood above him. >> he was walking on a bench above my head where my head was underneath. when he shot me i didn't move. i just let him shoot me. >> reporter: he struggled not to flinch so the gunman wouldn't shoot him again. police released this blurry image of a suspect, the militant managed to escape as survivors were fleeing the scene. with each hour that passes it's more difficult to catch this suspect, if he was in fact isis, there's a concern here that he could try to leave turkey, cross into syria, parts of which remain isis territory making it more difficult to be apprehended. >> richard, i know you have more information about the american who was inside that nightclub.
7:05 am
what can you tell us about him? >> reporter: well, he was here to celebrate the new year, he came with some high school friends. they were sitting at a v.i.p. table, they were having what they call bottle service, having a good time. and then suddenly people started shooting and some decided to run away, he didn't really believe what was going on until he saw the gunman. he dove underneath a bench, and as he described in that clip, he was half under the bench with his head underneath, his legs sticking out. the gunman standing on top of him and he had to wait until the gunman fired into him, he said he couldn't scream, couldn't make noise, because he wanted the gunman to think he was dead. luckily he survived, he will be heading back to the states soon later today or soon after. >> richard engel in istanbul, a city he knows quite well. thank you very much. in other niece president-elect donald trump is gearing up for a busy week, he returned to new york last night
7:06 am
after spending the holidays in florida, and with just 18 days to go until his inauguration, this is a lot on his plate. we're going to talk to in-coming press secretary shawn spicer, but first nbc's kristen welker is down the block, kristin, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. president-elect donald trump will hold more transition-related meetings and it comes amid fresh scrutiny of his latest comments about russia, and what it may all mean for future relations between the two countries. president-elect donald trump landing in new york late sunday after a star-studded black tie celebration saturday to ring in the new year. but the backdrop to the glitz and glamour, mounting confusion about what may come next for u.s. and russian relations, on sunday a plane carrying 35 expelled russian diplomats left the united states, their ouster retribution by president obama who announced sanctions against
7:07 am
russia for cyber attacks in attempts to influence the u.s. election, but when speaking to reporters over the weekend mr. trump again questioned the u.s. intelligence. >> i know a lot about hacking, and hacking is very hard thing to prove so it could be somebody else. >> reporter: and even hinted at potential revelation in the coming days. >> and i also know things that other people don't know and so they cannot be sure of this situation. >> reporter: when pressed to clarify mr. trump would only say he'll offer more information tuesday or wednesday after intelligence briefing this week. but mr. trump's incoming press secretary turned up the heat questioning whether president obama's response to the russian hacking was over the top. >> you look at 35 people being expelled two sites closed down. the question is, is that response in proportion. you have to think about that. >> reporter: disconnect over the outgoing and incoming presidents creating confusion across the
7:08 am
globe and on capitol hill where signaling there is bipartisan support for stiffer sanctions. >> wur going to see democrats and republicans like mccain and graham and others come twog a strong sanctions package. >> reporter: the current commander in chief president obama is on his way home from his winter vacation in hawaii and announced earlier today he'll deliver thinks farewell address in chicago next tuesday, but later this week he heads to capitol hill to strategize with fellow democrats how to save obamacare with mr. trump vowing to repeal it. >> kristin, thank you very much. shawn spicer will serve as president-elect donald trump's press secretary. happy new year. >> good morning. welcome back, katie. >> thank you, shawn. >> what does donald trump know? he knows how hard it is to prove, he knows things other people don't know and may reveal those tuesday or wednesday. what does he know? >> you know, we'll wait until tuesday or wednesday but he has
7:09 am
been briefed by his team, by his national security team, by outside interests and others as to the severity of the situation. i think as was noted in kristin's package what we're trying to figure out is how certain are they of the intelligence, one, number two, how proportional is the response to what happened. as i noted before, 2015 in april the chinese stole millions of personal documents, classified or information on individuals who have and are serving in our government. and yet there was not a single statement from the white house then. so in this case you have 35 people being expelled, 12 degrees of sanctions imposed, two sites being happened, is this a political response or diplomatic response. >> that was the office of personnel management in 2015, shawn. do you think that is as serious as attempting to tamper with the democratic process and the election? >> let's be honest. they stole millions of people's information, things that they put on security clearances, most sensitive information about who
7:10 am
they are, where they live, their family members. and not a single statement was issued by the white house. in this case frankly, we have to wonder whether or not this is a political outcome. in september of this year the president revealed he met with president putin and quote told him to knock it off. it what happened? nothing. they didn't act then. only until hillary clinton lost the election did they suddenly decide this was a major thing. >> i want to go back to -- >> maybe it was. >> i want to go back to the president-elect saying he knows things that other people don't know. has he shared this information with the cia, with the rest of the intelligence community? because he would be talking about information that would be vital to national security if it involved the hacking of our national election. has he shared it? if not is he holding it out there like some tease for a reality show? >> i think look, the president-elect is briefed by his security team, by the current security team, and intelligence community. i think he does know things.
7:11 am
that's why he's the president-elect, he is informed of things that americans that aren't clear to get thation kno. i think what he is trying to get at is there is a degree of certainty to which this happens. this the report that everyone sees is taken as gospel truth right now is not even final. it's not supposed to be final idesed until later this week so there are questions why we're taking the actions we're taking and the proportion that we are without the report even being finalized. so it's not a question of if, the president-elect will be briefed by senior members of the intelligence community later this week and at that time be able to determine whether or not he believes that the response was proportional to the actions taken. >> is there a chance once he becomes president he reverses the obama administration's reaction to this hacking and allows the 35 diplomats back in the country? >> no, i think what's going to happen the president-elect is going to wait until the information is final, till he can make the clearest judgment what to do and the best interests of this country. what he's not going to do is politicize intelligence and decide to shoot from the hip
7:12 am
before he has the complete picture of what's happening. let me answer the question, katie. he is going to make sure that he makes the best possible decision in the best interests of this country and not rush to judgment. what he's doing is making sure he is fully briefed by the most senior members of the intelligence community to make the best decision what he will do once he becomes president. >> should he be fully briefed before he continues to praise and some suggest fawn over vladamir putin? >> no look what happened the other day. the president of the united states made a decision to expel 35 diplomats, close two sites, impose 12 areas of sanctions against the russian government. the russian government immediately announced that they would do what we thought, which is retaliate and match in step the thing. putin decided he would wait until president trump became president. i think that shows the power he is going to have in restoring america's place. the fact of the matter until we have the information and that he
7:13 am
can make a complete and full disclosure what needs to be taken next, he is going to wait. >> all right. shawn spicer, thank you. we appreciate your time this morning. happy new year. we want to move to another story the in coming president has to deal with, kim jung understanding hinted that the test launch of a ballistic missile could be coming soon. in his new year's address kim said preparations have reached the final stage. kim threatened to boost his country's military capabilities further unless the u.s. ends war games with south korea, but he said efforts must be made to diffuse the possibility of another korean war and stressed the importance of building his country's economy. >> meantime, severe weather is creating major headaches for millions of americans trying to get home after the long holiday weekend. janet is at dallas/ft. worth international airport. nice to see you again. >> reporter: katie, good morning to you. welcome back. severe weather here at dfw
7:14 am
already impacting travelers, lightning and strong storms moving through and you know how that goes, it's a ripple effect at airports across the country. and the weather is going to worsen throughout the day, with the possibility of tornados, hail and ice in several cities. so this travel day could go from bad to worse. this morning not a happy new year for many travelers trying to get home after the holidays. wintry weather making the first days of 2017 tough going in some places. in seattle, for the first time in nearly a half century, a blanket of white covering the city on new year's eve. a cool way to ring in the new year for some, but slippery surfaces creating hazardous driving conditions, and slowing operations to a crawl at sea-tac airport. the storm moving east with the possibility of near blizzard conditions in the northern plains. in the upper midwest they expect freezing temperatures and a wintry mess of snow and ice. and the south is in for a
7:15 am
soaking. up to five inches of rain possible in some places. in minnesota, terrifying moments for these drivers. one car stranded on the side of the road, a second skidding out of control. forcing those in the first car to run for their lives. reminder from state troopers on the dangers of winter driving. with the flights running 100% full as people try to get home and cancellations are going to be difficult to reschedule. matt, katie, back to you. >> thanks, janet. >> al has his eyes on storms and much more. he is in pasadena getting ready for the rose parade. as you look in the monitor is it just bizarre? >> wait a second. >> hi, al. >> quhatsyou and i look horribl she still looks fantastic. >> oh, shucks. >> all right. i can't wait to see you back in new york tomorrow. >> they must have vaseline on
7:16 am
the camera lens, al. >> not sure where you were going with that. but let's -- >> nothing changed. >> let's show you -- let's show you what's going on. i mean, where janet is they are under severe thunderstorm watch and you can see we've also got severe weather to the west also heading into parts of louisiana as well, severe storms really firing up. and in fact, we've got a risk of severe weather for over 20 million people, 70 miles per hour wind gusts could be tornados as this pushes east it's going to cause problems. severe storms likely into tonight. and heavy downpours, rainfall amounts basically going to stretch from 2 to 5 inches but locally could be upwards of 7 to 8 inches down through the gulf coast. we're going to get to your local forecast coming up in the next 30 seconds. even a rodent ride-along.

>> that's your latest weather. and a little later this morning, 11:00 a.m. eastern, 8:00 pacific time, we're going to be hosting the 128th rose parade here on nbc. hoda kotb joins me. and the reason it's today on january 2nd instead of january 1st, there's a never on sunday rule. dates back into the 1890s when horse-drawn carriages would be disturbed by the parade. they said never on sunday. it's only happened 15 years in 128. matt and i were there for the first time. it was unbelievable. >> in 1890s when you started anchoring the "today" show. >> i knew you were going to say it. the best offense is a good defense. >> good luck with that, al. thank you very much. let's turn to mariah carey's new year's eve performance. people can't stop talking about
7:19 am
this. >> it was marred from problems from the very start. critics to the pop superstar. chanel jones weighs in with the latest. >> good morning. and nice to meet you. everyone agrees that mariah carey's performance didn't go as planned. but there's dispute as to why. carey and the team say it was faulty equipment. and the sound producers said the only issues she had were nontechnical. 2017 has its first controversy. after being called a disastrous new year's eve performance, that went viral, back and forth over what caused the mariah carey mishap. >> all right. >> reporter: the main dispute, whether or not carey's ear pieces and monitors were working. >> we can't hear. but i'll just get through the moment, okay. >> reporter: a rep for the singer says, they weren't. carey can be seen taking out her ear piece as "emotions" started

playing. later saying the monitors were off. >> get these monitors on, please. >> reporter: the rep said the show's producers knew she was having problems, but sent her on stage as planned rather than trying to fix the problem. >> i'm trying be a good sport here. >> reporter: dick clark productions released a statement, saying, in part, an initial investigation indicated that dcp had no involvement in the challenges associated with ms. carey's new year's eve performance. and claims as deflamtory and absu absurd. earlier, carey said he had problems hearing ryan seacrest. remember when beyonce admitted to lip-syncing at the presidential inauguration. or when ashlee simpson was caught on "saturday night live"
7:21 am
in 2004. >> that was amazing. >> reporter: as for this incident, abc would not comment. but just about everyone else did. one viewer tweeting, mariah carey gave 2016 the ending it deserved, tbh, to be honest. carey took it in stride, tweeting with an expletive that stuff happens. it says that the version was the backing track version, not the full version. that could have, perhaps, thrown her off. guys? >> i feel bad for her. i have nightmares about stuff like that. >> as people who do live television -- >> exactly. >> there's nowhere to hide. >> publicly, she took it in stride. >> it was a little -- >> my son showed me the tape. and all i can think of was, that outfit. i wasn't listening. wow. >> i was thinking, she must be cold, right? still ahead, from pop culture to politics and your money, three things you need to watch for in 2017. and kennedy cousin michael

7:33 am
to life, skakel had had his conviction overturned and was set free by a connecticut judge in 2013 after arguing his lawyer, mickey sherman, did not adequately represent him. the state appealed and in a 4-3 decision friday, connecticut's highest court said sherman provided constitutionally adequate representation. >> in this case, even though i did a good job, it means nothing. i lost the case, michael went to jail. >> now a best selling author, sherman still says skakel is innocent and has mixed feelings about the new supreme court decision. >> what hasn't changed is the fact that michael skakel has been wrongfully convicted. mine has been a small and insignificant price to pay compared to what michael is paying. >> speaking to report eers, the mother of martha moxley said this is the way it should be. i am very, very happy. it is sinking in and i could not be more excited, more pleased. now skakel's new legal team is weighing their options. >> the fight for justice for michael skakel in this case is
7:34 am
far from over. >> his attorneys plan to file a motion for reconsideration and are combatting critics who say skakel has received special treatment because of his famous family ties. >> there's never been any special treatment given to michael during the course of all of the proceedings simply because he is related to the kennedy family. nothing could be further from the truth. >> for decades, the case garnered attention playing out in b tabloids, books, and made for tv movies. placing a new spotlight on one of america's most iconic political families. >> michael skakel would not be in jail if people had not been able to call him kennedy cousin michael skakel. >> in a "dateline" special last saurm, robert skakel talked to matt and made a case for his cousin. dorothy moxley had emphatically that skakel is guilty of her daughter's death.

we've been watching president-elect trump. >> this is new for me. i'm walking. >> better that you came to me. >> we've been watching president-elect trump. we know he's going to surround himself at the white house on the campaign trail. he talked about his world view. it's one thing to talk about it. it's another thing to put into action. what are the early signs you're looking for? >> we spent morning after morning around that table, talking about his affection for all things putin-esque. and what are we talking about three weeks from inauguration? his explaining away what 17 intelligence agencies clearly describe as the hacking into the dnc e-mail server. if what we saw on the campaign is any indication how he's going to feel as president, we're looking at a major overhaul of u.s./russia relations. >> that should be fascinating. meanwhile, a lot of people are speculating about ivanka trump's role and their role in the administration, if they're working in the white house.
