>> good to see you, katie. matt, happy birthday, belatedly. we have strong storms pushing through northern florida and on into the midatlantic states. that moisture is pushing up to the north. and so while we're not going to be looking at weather quite as severe as we saw yesterday, there are going to be big airport delays for this first work day back into the new year as the rain moves northeast, we'll have snow showers finishing things up. we look for about anywhere from an inch to an inch and a half of rain from columbus all the way to boston. the other big pr lot of fog, airport delays along the i-95 corridor. so people are going to have to pack their patience traveling on the roads and in the air today. >> you talk about airport delays. we get a story now coming up, it had nothing to do with weather for a change. now to major chaos at airports nationwide after a customs computer outage. thousands of travelers were stranded for hours. kerry sanders is at the airport in miami with the latest. kerry, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning.
7:06 am
the computer systems are now back up and running. we have seen a few passengers trickling out on a flight that just arrived from brazil, but 8,000 passengers here in miami and many thousands across the country facing quite a delay because of downed computers. imagine you're a passenger and it's your travel day from hell. your in a foreign country, you have to get to the airport two hours early and get on the plane, an eight, nine or ten-hour flight. then you land after getting off the cramped plane and wait in line for four hours with nowhere to sit except on your luggage, wall the while waiting for the customs computers to come back online. overall, a holiday headache for passengers on one of the busiest travel delays of the year. a four-hour computer outage left thousands of travelers stuck in long lines, causing chaos at airports across the country.

7:08 am
outage with its processing systems. global entry, which is a lot like tsa pre, was no benefit to passengers. those who were thought to get around the problem were also waiting in lines. customs didn't having a redundant system to back them up is part of the ongoing investigation. >> kerry sanders, thank you. we have breaking news now on that traffic nightclub attack in turkey. police carrying out new raids overnight as they search for a suspect. nbc's chief foreign correspondent is in istanbul. richard, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, katie. turkish police say they have now arrested 14 people in those raids in operations carried out in istanbul and in the city. they have the attacker's fingerprints and are close to identifying him. the alleged terrorist who gunned down thousands of people in a
7:09 am
popular istanbul nightclub on new year's eve filmed this selfie video days before the attack turkish media report. the video is being broadcast around the clock on local television today in hopes that someone will find him. after killing 39 people in the club, most of them tourists from the middle east, he ditched his coat and dropped his guns. police this morning confirm that's him seen on the attack after getting out of the club. the cabbie threw him out because without his jacket he didn't have money on him. he walks away and is not seen again. isis claimed responsibility for the attack. turkey launched a military attack in response striking the government with 100 isis targets around syria since sunday. as police raided homes in istanbul, the most wanted man in turkey remains at large.
7:10 am
in front of the nice club this morning, there was a small group of people saying they have had enough of terrorism. >> richard engel, thank you. let's turn to politics now, lawmakers are back on capitol hill returning from the holidays with a packed agenda ahead of president-elect trump's inauguration in just 17 days. we'll talk to one of his top advisers, kelly ann conway, in a few minutes. but first we'll go to hallie jackson on capitol hill. good morning to you. >> reporter: hey, matt, good morning to you. this morning republicans are raring to go with the new congress now in control of both chambers. and soon enough, the white house. their to-do list long but before the 115th gets worn in, democrats taken a aim at a gop move that backtracks to drain the swamp. congress counting down and already courting controversy. house republicans in a surprise move bucking their leadership to
7:11 am
gut an independent ethics office created eight years ago after a series on congressional scandals. >> a rein in independence and what i call the fox in charge of the chicken coup committee. >> reporter: the 115th congress gets sworn in with plenty of their plate. number one for republicans? repeal president obama's health care law. >> obamacare repeal resolution will be the first item up. >> reporter: a congressional priority after a campaign pledge repeated by the president-elect on new year's eve. >> we're going to get rid of obamacare. >> reporter: democrats will fight it arguing millions of people could lose coverage. president obama set to make a rare appearance on the hill tomorrow to try to preserve his signature domestic policy. but it's almost assured the gop will get its way. now controlling both chambers of congress and the white house.
7:12 am
the question then becomes, what will they replace it with while still keeping the most popular protections of the law, like protecting those with pre-existing conditions. the second on the agenda? a contentious fight for the top cabinet picks expected to be among the most controversial picks, recollectix tillerson. >> the coziness with vladimir putin is alarming and shows it should have eliminated him. >> reporter: hearings have already been set for senator jeff sessions hoping to become attorney general. he will probably be asked to address accusations of racism that derailed his 1986 bid to become a federal judge. accusations sessions has denied. still, if senate republicans stay unified, trump will get the cabinet he wants. the third big priority for congress, rolling back regulations. the house will vote this week on
7:13 am
a bill to target regulations put in place under president obama. and there's plenty more donald trump could undue on his own, like actions on immigration and climate change. as soon as he takes office, in less than three weeks, his transition winding down with congress ramping up. and on the topic of that transition, the president-elect's team just this morning naming a new u.s. trade representative. robert lighthizer, one of the few spots donald trump still needed to fill. he tweeted again about nuclear weapons. north korea just stated it is in the final stages of developing a nuclear weapon capable of reaching parts of the u.s. it won't happen. the president-elect not saying how. matt? >> hallie, thank you very much. let us bring in kellyanne
7:14 am
conway and will serve as president-elect donald trump's counselor. they are overseeing police scandal in congress. they stripped the independence and put it under the control of congress, the very group they are supposed to police. donald trump ran a campaign to say i'm going to drain the swamp in washington. doesn't this do the opposite? how does he feel about it? >> it does not. i don't want your viewers to know there's no mechanism to investigate the constituent complaints. there's a new office and the new office will cut down on the overzelousness. >> is that office completely independent of congress? >> the office could be. >> but it's not now. >> the congress will vote on it today. this was a particular committee voting by secret ballot, but the full congress will have an opportunity to speak out on this and to vote today. >> will donald trump weigh in on this? will he tell them how he feels about it? >> he's not at the moment. i'm sure when he feels the urge to weigh in on this, he certainly does.
7:15 am
let me make clear, if a constituent has a complaint, they can still lodge the complaint. they can't do it anonymously. many members and staffers under investigation have complained about the due process rights being violated and being compromised. so they need protections as well. >> let's talk about to bobamaca because number one for congress is to repeal obamacare. have they come up with something to replace obamacare? >> yes and yes, katie. actually, one of the big priorities for president-elect trump and the republican congress would be to make it easier for americans to purchase health care across state lines. the way you would buy auto insurance, for example. currently, you can't do that. we also were talking about a free market system where you have a health savings account. you own it, it has your name on it and you can control your health care spending for you and your family. this particularly impacts women who are the chief health care officers of their households.
7:16 am
>> there are aspects of the affordable care act that donald trump has praised, coverage for people with pre-existing conditions, allowing kids to stay on their health care plans until they are 26 years old. is he committed to maintaining those parts of the law? and how will he do that with out the individual mandate to pay for them? >> he's committed to retain the pieces that are working. i think he'll be talking to his hhs secretary designee about it tom price and other experts in the field. it's an issue where the president-elect has received a great deal of counsel. i was in palm beach last week for meetings when it's been public he met with really the top health care experts in the country, the heads of the mayo clinic and brigham young and the cleveland clinic, john hopkins -- >> is he still committed to those things? >> he's committing to repealing obamacare. we hear about this issue from people more than other things, this and veterans care.
7:17 am
what they say is, one is, i thought i was going to get better coverage but my hours were cut down to 25 to not get the coverage from an employer, now i have two jobs, no coverage. number two, people thought they had great coverage and now feel their premiums have increased, their choices have decreased and the quality is next. >> when is he going to have a press conference to talk about the conflict of interest with his business. the last one was 159 days ago. he famously urged russian hackers to look for hillary clinton's e-mails. when is he going to hold a press conference and divulge what he says others don't know about the russian hacking? >> well, i'll take the second part first. he'll have a briefing by the top intelligence officials early this week here in new york, matt and katie, at which time he'll learn more about what they say. we are tired of the blind quotes and people really leaking to the press rather than directly with what may or may not have happened with the hacking. >> will he tell intelligence officials what he knows?
7:18 am
>> he may, but i think president-elect should know things we don't know, particularly when it comes to intelligence. >> and getting the information from general michael flynn, he does have close ties to vladimir putin. in fact, we have a photo from december 2015 at a dinner with putin. is that where he's getting this information that other people don't know? >> he's getting information from a number of sources. he's the president-elect, katie, he receives a regular presidential daily briefings. in addition to that product, he receives intelligence briefings from many different sources. i would push back on the idea that someone sitting at a dinner with someone else is close ties in a coziness that nancy pelosi is saying. rex tillerson has done business in yemen, in russia certainly, and somebody who understands how to negotiate and how to say no to some of the leaders when necessary. >> kellyanne conway, thanks again. nice to have you here.
