7:07 am
tensions are running high here after explosive details leaked about that intelligence report. building the case against russia trying to interfere in the u.s. election. that prompting the president elect to again lash out at intelligence community setting the stage for what could be a day of fireworks at trump tower. in just a few hours, president elect donald trump will come face to face with the nation's top intelligence officials. fbi, cia, and nsa. director of intelligence. same officials he spent weeks dispara disparaging. now have the chance to push back. week after james clapper took his case to congress. >> you're going to be challenged tomorrow by the president elect. are you okay with being challenged. >> absolutely. >> reporter: a tense backdrop now escalating amid new details in the intelligence report. senior u.s. intelligence official telling nbc news, intercepts picked up senior officials celebrating trump's
7:08 am
win as beneficial to russia. according to to a source also identified russian actors who turned over stolen material to wikileaks. trump who called himself a fan during the day quickly changed tune and lashed out after the late night leaks tweeting the democratic national committee would not allow the fbi to study or see computer info after it was supposedly hacked by russia. how and why are they show sure about hacking. what is going on? this comes with the intelligence community and some members of congress presenting a united front. >> every american should be alarmed by russia's attacks on our nation. >> reporter: senator john mccain calling it a act of war. >> i think there's a difference between skepticism and disparagement. >> reporter: adding some fuel. former cia director who had been advising trump announced he's no longer serving in that capacity.
7:09 am
former cia director insisting it wasn't out of protest, but rather to clarify he hasn't advised trump for a while. >> i didn't want to fly under false colors. not really functioning as an adviser anymore. >> reporter: meanwhile the transition team asked ambassadors to leave post by inauguration day. standard practice, but according to "new york times" also raising eyebrows, but anyway giving a small grace period and amid all the debate and discord, the current vice president offering strong words to the incoming commander in chief. >> grow up. time to be an adult. you're president. you got to do something. >> reporter: and this morning, a possible shift in a major campaign promise. after vowing that mexico would pay for the border wall, a top transition official tells me president elect trump is now considering having congress pay to jump start construction of the wall. the idea being that mexico would eventually pay back the u.s.,
7:10 am
something that trump is underscoring in a tweet saying the dishonest media does not report any money spent on billeding the great wall for sake of speed will be paid back by mexico later. still the topic number one, high stakes intelligence briefing. >> kristen, thank you. how is this going to play out inside the meeting at trump tour. we sat down with former cia director to get his take. we started with those new reports that russian hacking goes as far back as 2008. >> there's evidence now that russia has been deliberately hacking our country and trying in particular to interfere with the election process in this country. that is a serious attack on the united states of america. and for that reason, it is important that we respond. >> secretary, in your days in
7:11 am
the defense department and cia, you were part of a lot of briefings at a very high level. let me pick your brain, let me use your wisdom. take me inside that room as these high level intelligence officials brief donald trump. >> my experience is that it's going to be a very serious presentation of the evidence they have. they will be professional. they'll try to present the facts that they have. i think these are the most professional people i've dealt with in the intelligence community and i think they'll do a good job. >> when you look at the people who are going to be in att attendance at trump tower, cia director. fbi director and head of national security agency. this is the highest level of intelligence in this country. how much of an eye ope experience do you think this briefing is going to be for president-elect trump? >> when he sits down with our
7:12 am
intelligence community and hears what they have to say, i think it's going to realize that this is a very important issue, that must be dealt with seriously. he's going to find that, you know, it's easy to tweet about reactions to all kinds of issues. but to seriously deal with our national security and threats to our country, is the business that should be done in the confines of the oval office. >> have you ever seen a dynamic like this where an incoming president or sitting president, has expressed such an amount of distrust for the intelligence community? >> matt, i've been in public service for over 50 years. i have never seen anything like this in my lifetime. but the fact that the president-elect is tweeting on this issue, and taking it to the
7:13 am
public, and in many ways, undermining the credibility of the very intelligence agencies that have to provide information to him, in order for him to be president of the united states, this is just unheard of and unprecedented. and i -- i think we all have to be concerned about this. this is not -- this is not the kind of bickering that ought to be going on in public. >> let me talk about the tweeting you just referenced. this is a tweet from donald trump in regard to this briefing. he said the intelligence briefing on so-called russian hacking was delayed until friday. perhaps more time needed to build a case, very strange. you don't have to read much between the lines to understand that he is alleging, in some way, that these intelligence officials are cooking the books. and that this is some kind of a scam. as a former director of the cia, how do you respond to that? >> frankly, if a president is going to be successful, this is
7:14 am
no way to start. the president has to work with the intelligence community. president's got to make tough decisions. he cannot make the tough decisions without the best intelligence that can be provided to him. i'm concerned that it is damaging the credibility of our intelligence agencies and the morale of those men and women who serve in our intelligence agencies. >> the president has taken some actions against russia in the wake of the evidence he's seen on this hacking. expelling 35 diplomats. donald trump has not ruled out reversing those sanctions and those moves. what message would be sent if after being sworn in, donald trump reverses the actions taken by president obama in response to the russian hacking? >> well, it would be a terrible message for the president of the united states to reverse those steps. frankly, i think president obama should have acted much earlier, during the summer, when we had the first information that this
7:15 am
was going on. but the president, to his credit, did take action. when we know that these attacks have gone on, and that the russians are behind it, then it is extremely important for the united states of america to take action against that happening because if we don't, then we are literally saying it's okay to attack our country. it's okay to conduct espionage against our country. and yu don't have to pay any price. >> how seriously do you take the threat from russia at this particular stage? is it an act of war? >> one of the debates that's been going on on in congress and in the administration is what kind of cyber attack constitutes an act of war. you know, i can't -- i don't think that's ever truly been defined and i'm not going to say it's an act of war, but it is an attack on our country. it's an attack on our election system and an attack or freedoms.
7:16 am
when an adversary is willing to do that, this nation has to respond. we have to do it in a unified way between the president, intelligence community, and the congress. >> secretary, i really appreciate your time tonight. thank you so much. >> thanks, matt. >> thanks, matt. >> you can tell, he takes this personally, as someone who used to run the cia. >> you know it will be so interesting to see if donald trump changes his tone and approach following this intelligence briefing today. if he'll take things more seriously. >> or if with his tweets and
7:17 am
>> reporter: this is a bond hearing ultimately facing hate charges and others. >> take it easy. >> they showed their faces on video. and today we'll show their faces in court. two black women and two black men charged with kidnapping a white teenager with mental health issues. what authorities are calling a hate crime. the video shows the 18-year-old victim tied up. slashed with a knife. and forced to drink toilet water. the ordeal according to police went on for hours. posted to facebook live for all to see. >> the actions in that video are reprehensible. that along with racism have absolutely no place in the city of chicago. >> anybody seeing it is both it's sickening and sickened by
7:18 am
it. >> this morning, the victim's grandmother tells nbc news she hasn't seen it and won't. >> i don't think i can handle that. i can't want to watch him suffering. i know he did. >> investigators confirm the victim went to school with one of his alleged assailants. jordan hill. he met up with hill at a chicago mcdonald's on new year's eve. investigators say what started as a sleepover escalated over several days. officers found the 18-year-old wandering the street disor conseque yented. then located the house. >> the racially charged attack has prompted condemnation from black leaders. >> our community in fact is embarrassed by the action of these young men. their actions are very barbaric. and we are outraged. >> as for the victim, his siblings say he's doing as well
7:19 am
as can be expected. >> we're grateful for the prayers and efforts that led to safe return of our brother. >> reporter: in addition to the hate crime charge, also facing charges of battery with a deadly weapon, unlawful restraint and kidnapping. if convicted o on the kidnapping charge alone, could face up to 30 years in prison. >> blake, thank you. now to an embarrassing mistake made by a washington daily newspaper. drew heavy criticism on thursday. "washington post" expressed cover store about the women's march on washington mistakenly featured the male gender symbol. soon after. >> it was pink. >> soon after it tweeted with what the cover should have looked like featuring the correct gender symbol. apologized for the error saying it was very embarrassed. >> i hate when that happens. >> i know. al's back, with a check of the weather. >> we're going to have more coming up on the nasty winter storms across the country,
7:20 am
including what you can expec cottonelle asked real people about cleaning... their bums. what?
