7:04 am
prior to that face-to-face meeting to get alleged dirt on hillary clinton, that the information was part of an effort by the russian government to help the trump campaign. in a moment, we'll hear from that attorney exclusively. but first, nbc national correspondent, peter alexander, is at the white house. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the latest headline, the president's son, receiving an e-mail that the russians were hoping to boost his father's campaign. by far the biggest revolution yet. this morning fuelling new questions about the trump campaign's possible ties to moscow, as donald trump jr.'s explanation keeps evolving. this morning, new revelations about what donald trump jr. knew and when he knew it. "the new york times" reports that before taking a meeting that the russian lawyer tied to the kremlin, who he believed would offer damaging information about hillary clinton, donald trump jr. was informed in an e-mail that the material was part of a russian government effort to help his father's
7:05 am
candidacy. that e-mail was sent by this man, rob goldstone, a publicist who helped set up that june 2016 meeting. a meeting was also attended by the president's son-in-law jared curb her and then-campaign chairman paul manafort. late monday, trump jr. let his newly-hired attorney do the talking. in a statement to nbc news the lawyer wrote, in my view this is much ado about nothing. don jr. had no knowledge as to what specific information, if any, would be discussed. adding, the bottom line is that don jr. did nothing wrong. but the top democrat on the house intelligence committee disagrees. >> if the report about the e-mail is accurate and the e-mail said the russian government is trying to help your father, then there's no mystery about what this lawyer is up to, and who she's representing. >> reporter: now, senate investigators want to bring trump jr. in for questioning. the president's son on twitter saying he's happy to work with the intelligence committee. earlier, trump jr. dismissed accusations that his story keeps changing.
7:06 am
tweeting, no inconsistency in statements. meeting ended up being primarily about adoptions. in response to further questions, i simply provided more details. the white house says the president only learned about the meeting in the last several days. insisting there was no collusion between the president's campaign and russian operatives. >> don jr. did not collude with anybody to influence the election. no one within the trump campaign colluded in order to influence the election. >> reporter: more than a month after the meeting, trump jr. attacked the clinton campaign for suggesting a russian plot to help trump and hurt clinton. >> it's disgusting. it's so phony. i can't think of bigger lies. that goes to show you what the dnc and what the clinton camp will do. they will lie and do anything to win. >> reporter: the president's son this morning back on twitter lashing out, writing media and democrats are extremely invested in the russia story. if this nonsense meeting is all they have after a year i understand the desperation.
7:07 am
as for that e-mail he received, it's raising all sorts of new questions. did he reply? did anyone else from the campaign? and if the trump campaign was willing to take this meeting, what other meetings might they have taken that we don't know about. savannah? >> all right, peter alexander at the white house. thanks. now, to the key figure in all of this. for the first time, we're hearing directly from that russian lawyer who met with donald trump jr. she spoke with nbc news exclusively today. nbc's keir simmons is in moscow with what she's saying about all of it. keir, good morning to you. >> reporter: savannah, good morning. we just wrapped up that interview with natalia veselnitskaya. she tells a fascinating story about getting a phone call from a man she didn't know and being told to come to trump tower to meet with the trump campaign. she says they wanted information on the clinton campaign. information she says, she didn't have. this is the woman, natalia veselnitskaya, in a storm over a meeting with donald trump's son.
7:08 am
in june 2016. >> translator: you wake up and you find you are the focus of all the high-ranking media. >> reporter: on june 9th, two weeks after donald trump secured the nomination, his son, donald trump jr. along with jared curb her and former campaign chair paul manafort, met with the russian attorney. in june, you met with donald trump jr., with jared kushner, with paul manafort. what was the purpose of that meeting? >> translator: i never knew who else would be attending the meeting. all i knew was that mr. donald trump jr. was willing to meet with me. i could recognize the young gentleman who was only present in the meeting for only the first seven to ten minutes. and then, he stood up and left the room. it was mr. jared kushner. and he never came back, by the way. and the other individual at the same meeting, was always looking at his phone. he was reading something. he never took any active part in the conversation. that was mr. manafort.
7:09 am
>> reporter: they had the impression, it appears, they were going to be told some information that you had about the dnc. how did they get that impression? >> translator: it's possible that maybe they were looking for such information. they wanted it so badly. >> reporter: and this morning, she denies claims she is connected to a russian government effort to aid donald trump's presidency. have you ever worked for the russian government? do you have connections to the russian government? >> translator: no. >> reporter: what she was doing, she says, is lobbying against u.s. legislation that imposes sanctions on russian individuals. guys this is a long interview. we're still picking through it. we'll have more through the day. >> all right, keir, thank you so much. in fact a lot more of this exclusive interview tonight on nbc "nightly news" with lester hold. let's bring in jeremy bash. jeremy, good morning to you. >> good morning, guys.
7:10 am
>> now this woman we just heard from the russian lawyer tells a very different story than the one that's being reported in "the new york times" this morning. according to "the new york times," donald trump jr. went to this meeting or took this meeting because he was told there was damaging information that he could have been hillary clinton and the "times" goes on to say that prior to the meeting he was sent an e-mail that the information he would receive was part of a russian government effort to help the trump campaign. how many alarms go off in your head if that story is true? >> many, matt. this is the first direct link between the trump campaign and the russian government. on the effort to influence the 2016 election. prior, we had a lot of, i would say, circumstantial evidence. but this, potentially, is the first direct evidence, that someone very senior in the trump campaign knew and knowingly accepted support from the russian government. >> and this woman said she had no contact or connection to the russian government.
7:11 am
but if you receive, if you're donald trump junior and receive that e-mail about this effort by the russian government is that a meeting you simply don't take? >> actually it's more than that, matt. not only should he not have taken the meeting. he should have alerted the fbi. i was involved in the 2000 presidential election, working for vice president gore. we received some damaging information about the opposing candidate, bush. we immediately alerted the fbi. that's what you need to do. >> you get a differing opinion, if every fact, if that amounts to something criminal, something illegal. >> well, savannah, under the law, a foreign government is not allowed to donate anything of value to a u.s. federal election. and if you have a kremlin-backed operative offering to support the presidential election, i would say that comes darn near close if not right over the line. >> all right. jeremy bash, thank you very much. appreciate it.
7:12 am
>> thank you, guys. now, to the ongoing battle over health care, raging on capitol hill. police arrested 80 people monday outside the offices of senate republicans. they were protesting a plan to repeal and replace obamacare. with just three weeks before the congressional august recess, the stalled republican bill is facing an uphill climb. opposition by some senate republicans has grown in recent days. now senate democrats are calling on republicans to work with them on a bipartisan fix to obamacare. a u.s. army sergeant behind bars in hawaii accused of trying to support isis. sergeant kang made his first appearance in honolulu on monday. the 34-year-old was arrested saturday after months of meetings with undercover fbi informants he thought were isis members or supporters. court documents said he told the informants that he wanted to go overseas to train in hand-to-hand combat. his attorney told nbc news that

his client may suffer from service-related mental health issues, of which the government was aware, but neglected to treat. we have more to get to this morning, including the faa investigating a very close call at san francisco international airport. an air canada flight nearly landed on a taxiway loaded with other passenger jets. officials say the quick actions of an air traffic controller helped avoid a potential disaster. nbc's tom costello covers aviation for us. tom, good morning. what more do we know about this? >> savannah, this happened friday night. it was, in fact, a very close call. four other passenger jets, loaded with passengers, and fuel, lined up on that taxiway waiting to depart. had controllers not waved him off, the air canada plane could have plowed right into a line of planes carrying hundreds of people. air canada flight 759 was an airbus a-320, told runway 28 right but the pilot confused taxiway charlie for the runway.
7:14 am
he even radioed controllers that he saw the lights on the runway, thankfully, at the very last minute, other pilots saw him headed straight for the taxiway and controllers ordered the air canada pilot to pull up and go around. >> tower, just want to confirm, this is air canada 759. we see some nights on the runway there. >> confirm, there's no one on 28 right but you. >> okay. >> where is this guy going? he's on the taxiway. >> air canada, go around. >> in a go around. >> united one, air canada flew directly over us. >> yeah, i saw that, guys. >> in a statement, the faa tells nbc news on friday just before midnight an airbus a320 was cleared to land on run way 28 right at san francisco. however the pilot inadvertently lined up for taxiway c which runs parallel to the runway.
7:15 am
an air traffic controller sent the air canada jet around the plane, made another approach and landed without incident. the faa is investigating how close that pilot came to the other planes on the taxiway. air canada says it, too, is investigating. guys, this could have been disastrous. >> absolutely. >> too close for comfort. tom, thank you very much. big news on the olympics to tell you about this morning. looks like the summer games are headed back to los angeles. the international olympic committee is meeting in switzerland right now, and according to reuters, the ioc is expected to ratify a recommendation to award both the 2024, and 2028 summer games at the same time. so what does that all mean? well, it means both los angeles, and paris, will be awarded the games. this is an unusual move. the ioc would need to decide which city would go first. an official announcement is expected in september. los angeles, as we know, hosted the olympics in 1984. >> it would be good if they let those cities know. >> for planning purposes. >> before it's too late. >> yeah, exactly.

8:52 am
you just pulse it. do not let it run. you get a rice that looks like that. >> great. what do we add to it? >> to make the fried race, you start with some carrots and scalli scallion. i like to add peas. if you want to add snow peas or anything. lots of garlic and ginger. that's where a lot of the flavor is going to come from. >> i notice you're cooking the vegetables first. is that because this gets soggy the longer you cook it? >> exactly. cauliflower does not release water. you're not going to add it to the last bit. you add some soy sauce. i would rather you season it with the salt. you don't want to add more liquid. and then, you add some sesame oil. you're going to saute all of that. okay? >> roker, look what we have here. >> yeah. >> what is that? >> that's it. go to the chinese restaurant, get some barbecue park. if you're going to keep this
