philliewsovernight, at least 11 people are dead, among them children. after a tourist boat capsized in missouri on table rock lake in branson, it happened as a line of powerful storms and winds topping 60 miles an hour rolled through the area. this storm captured is to blame. >> there were two duck boats in the water but only one of them made it back. we do have video moments before the tragedy, but a warning it may be tough to watch. witness video shows the duck boats struggling to plow through the stormy current. it is not clear which one of the two boats capsized. panic unfolds as witnesses from a nearby boat watch in mohorrors one duck boate?ap i need the bough. >> it sank and everybody on board here is trying to get them out of the water.
4:02 am
one off-duty sheriff's deputy working security on the duck boat helped rescue some passengers, but five people are still unaccounted for. dive teams will resume searches later this morning. of the 31 people on board, seven of them have been transported to the hospital. just one suffered critical injuries, but is expected to be okay. in a statement the company that owns the duck bode said it was deeply saddened by the accident vowing to assist victims' families and the rescue. >> severe weather swept through the heart land with tornadoes touching down in iowa including this twister that tore through the city of marshall town. the storm downing trees and leveling buildings. it even damaged a hospital forcing evacuation of 43 patients. local authorities say though several people are injured, there are no reported deaths. >> obviously with this kind of damage you're going to have your bumps and bruises from things bouncetion around. we don't have any reports. i spoke to the hospital and they
4:03 am
don't anybody reporting to them with serious injuries at this point. >> a farm equipment plant was packed for the 70th anniversary celebration. there were a handful of injuries, relatively minor. homes also damaged in the town. the weather service said it won't be able to assess the strength of the tornadoes until later today. to washington where the white house is apparently fuming, the washington post this morning reporting the president and senior aides are in an uproar with the director of national intelligence dan coates after this interview with our own andrea mitchell following this astonishing moment. >> we have some breaking news. the white house has announced on twitter that vladimir putin is coming to the white house in the fall. say that again? [ laughter ] >> vladimir putin coming to -- >> did i hear you?
4:04 am
>> yeah, yeah. >> okay. [ laughter ] >> that's going to be special.a about a white house visit from vladimir putin himself. the west wing apparently did not tell top administration officials about the invitation. it's a moment that's underscoring the tenuous, perhaps fraying relationship between the president and his top brass. with one senior white house official telling the post, quote, coats has gone rogue. >> believe it or not, that wasn't the only major headline. coming out of aspen, nbc lester holt has more. >> two of president trump's top law enforcement and intel officials with remarkable push back. director of national intelligence dan coats on the president standing with vladimir putin, dismissing intel agency conclusions on russian meddling. >> obviously i wished he had made a different statement. but i think that now that that has been clarified. >> and about that one on one meeting between the president and putin.
4:05 am
>> if he hadfere way, but that's not my, its what it . >> is there a risk that vladimir putin could have recorded it? >> that risk is always there. >> and hours after, president trump seemed to deny russia was still trying to meddle in u.s. elections. >> is russia still targeting the u.s., mr. president? >> fbi director chris wray telling me -- >> the intelligence community's assessment has not changed. my view has not changed. which is that russia atted to interfere with the last election and that it continues to engage and malign, influence operations to this day. >> aimed at our political considered quitting. >> i'm a low key guy, but that shouldn't be mistaken for what my spine is made out of.
4:06 am
>> so you have -- >> i'll leave it at that. >> okay. and wray weighing in on the idea of a russian offer to allow u.s. prosecutors to travel to moscow to watch questioning of russian agents under u.s. indictment. >> would you ever envision a world in which you would allow suspects to be interviewed by russia and observe? re: well, i never want to say never about anything, but it's certainly not high on our list of investigative techniques. [ laughter ] >> there has also been the suggestion from putin that he would want to come -- have interview americans. is that something that you would support? >> that's probably even lower on our list of investigative ing at the techniques. >> now with those revelations of anti-trump texts from top agent peter strzok which the inspector general said cast a cloud over the fbi, the president intensifying his attack on the russia investigation. >> that was a total witch hunt. >> is there anything that would allow it to be called a witch
4:07 am
hunt? >> i've been consistent. i get asked this a lot. i do not believe special counsel mueller is on a witch hunt. i think professional investigation conducted by a man that i've known to be a straight shooter in all my interactions with him. >> thanks to lester for that report. >> and it wasn't just the intel and fbi chief speaking out against the president. congress issued a rare bipartisan rebuke unanimously passing a resolution condemning president trump's once touted incredible offer from vladimir putin to interview americans in exchange for those 12 indicted russian hackers. just as a leading republican congressman and former cia official laments the president has been manipulated by putin himself. nbc's hallie jackson has more from the white house. >> reporter: brushing off backlash to his one on one, plans now for part two between donald trump and vladimir putin. >> were you aware of that, just want to clarify, because you seemed to be. >> based on my reaction, i wasn't aware of that. >> reporter: the news surprising
4:08 am
even the president's own director of national intelligence on stage in aspen. >> would you recommend that there not be a one on one without note takers? >> if i were asked that question, i would look for a different way of doing it. >> reporter: it would be putin's first visit to the u.s. since 2015, and the first since his country interfered in the 2016 election. president trump now on defense after a third straight day of muddled messaging over his posture toward putin. >> look at the sanctions i've put on. look at the diplomats i threw out. look at all of the things that i've done. nobody else did what i've done. obama didn't do it. obama was a patsy for russia. getting along with president putin, getting along with russia is a positive, not a negative. now, with that being said, if that doesn't workout, i'll be the worst enemy he's ever had. >> now, after a week's worth of clean ups, another one. after the art of the deal president didn't reject one from russia fast enough, the deal would have let the special
4:09 am
counsel question 12 recently indicted russian intelligence officials if and only if russia could then interrogate 11 americans putin has problems with. that includes the former u.s. ambassador to russia, michael mcfaul, and nbc news international affairs analyst. >> what is your message today, right now to donald trump? >> the president of the united states needs to come out and categorically denounce it. >> the white house is not denouncing putin, but is insisting the president won't play ball on this. quote, it is a proposal that was made in sincerity by president putin, but president trump disagrees with it. >> our thanks to hallie for that report. >> we have stunning footage of of a police who rescued the baby who used the baby as a human shield when they tried to a roast letter f arrest her in texas. they ran outside to her car and grabbed the baby. police were able to safely rescue the infant and then
