the japan prime minister in iran hoping to ease conflict. the morning's incidents coming weeks after saudi arabia accused rifle iran of striking four tankers in the gulf. a preliminary investigation blaming an unidentified state actor. iran has denied the accusations and at times played down the prospects of war with the west. president trump speaking out about relations with iran earlier this week. >> when i came here, they were all over the place, causing terror, causing problems. they're not doing that right now. >> reporter: but this morning the region on a knife's edge again, iran's supreme leader saying why iran does not want an atomic bomb america could do nothing to stop it. >> this has been a time of escalating tensions in this region, keir. have we heard from the white house this morning?
7:05 am
>> reporter: nothing yet, savannah, but inevitably there will be reaction. the administration has taken multiple steps going back to last year, pumping out of the nuclear agreement with iran, ramping up sanctions on aran and amid tensions sending more troops to the region. the aim has been to deter iran, savannah. the urgent question this morning, what happened here. there will be cool heads in washington asking this morning why would iran attack japanese-related ships just when the japanese leader was there trying to work for peace. but, clearly, if it was iran it will strengthen the hand of those within the trump administration who have been urging a tough approach like the national security advisor john bolton. again, savannah, we are in the early hours of trying to find out what really occurred. without doubt, this is a dangerous moment, savannah. >> reporter: keir is on the breaking news. thank you. now to the stunning admission from president trump revealing in a new interview that he would listen for information on his 2020 rivals
7:06 am
from foreign governments nbc white house correspondent peter alexander joins us with more on what the president had to say and the reaction as well. peter, good morning. >> reporter: craig, good morning to you you're right these were remarkable comment, especially after an investigation that consumed nearly two years of donald trump's presidency, focusing on his campaign's interactions with russians in 2016 the president in this new interview says he might not necessarily alert the fbi if foreign governments offered damaging information, what he called opposition research on his 2020 opponent, suggesting he would put his own political future above the rule of law president trump, asked by abc news where he would accept information on his 2020 opponent from a foreign power or call the fbi? >> i think maybe you do both i think you might want to listen there's nothing wrong with listening. if somebody called from a country, norway, we have information on your opponent oh, i think i would want to hear it. >> you want that kind of
7:07 am
interference in our elections? >> it is not an interference they have information. i think i would take it. if i thought there was something wrong, i would go maybe to the fbi, if i thought there was something wrong. but when somebody comes up with op research, right, they come up with op research, oh, let's call the fbi. the fbi doesn't have enough agents to take care of it. >> reporter: just last month fbi director christopher wray made his position clear. >> if any public official or member of a campaign is contacted by any nation state or anybody acting on behalf of a nation state about influencing or interfering with our election, then that's something that the fbi would want to know about. >> reporter: the president disputing that. >> oh, let me call the fbi give me a break. life doesn't work that way. >> reporter: the fbi director says that's what should happen. >> the fbi director is wrong. >> reporter: it follows donald trump jr. testifying gen behind closed doors. >> are you here to correct your testimony. >> reporter: the president's oldest son hosted that 2016 trump tower meeting between
7:08 am
campaign officials and russians promising dirt on hillary clinton. the president defending his son, who was not charged with a crime in connection with robert mueller's investigation. >> reporter: should he have gone to the fbi when he got the e-mail >> let's put yourself in a position you're a congressman somebody comes up and says, i have information on your opponent, do you call the fbi? i tell you what. i have seen a lot of things in my life, i don't think i have ever called the fbi. in my whole life you don't call the fbi you throw somebody out of your office. >> reporter: it comes as one of the president's most trusted confidante, hope hicks, will be the first to testify before the house judiciary committee investigating whether the president tried to obstruct justice. what hicks will be permitted to say is unclear since the president may assert executive privilege over her testimony related to her time at the white house and earlier this month directed hicks not to cooperate with a congressional subpoena for white house documents.
7:09 am
>> peter, let's go back to the comments from president trump about accepting information from foreign governments. has there been reaction yet and do we suspect there will be some fall-out >> reporter: strikingly, republicans have been silent, but democrats from the campaign trail to congress, they quickly condemned the president's comments chuck schumer calling them disgraceful, tweeting, when the president talks like this, it's no wonder mitch mcconnell is blocking what does it mean for the wider impeachment debate amongst democrats. nancy pelosi, the house speaker, has resisted calls within her party to begin impeachment proceedings. we will hear from her this morning, a weekly news conference it is not clear these comments from the president will change her calculus >> peter alexander at the white house for us thank you. there's growing reaction to the first sentencing connected
7:10 am
to the widespread college admissions sentencing. nbc national correspondent miguel almaguer joins us with the latest. >> reporter: good morning, savannah prosecutors wanted to send a message that it will end in prison time but they didn't get it it is being watched by others, including hollywood actresses, as they face time behind bars. >> coach, any message to your former athletes that looked up to you in. >> reporter: prosecutors wanted him to spend 13 months in pritson, but the former coach of the stanford sailing team formerly, he was sentenced to two years supervised probation and a $10,000 fine he apologized outside federal court. >> i have taken responsibility for my actions and i'm accepting the consequences of the actions. >> reporter: after pleading guilty to federal racketeering charges in march, he admitted to
7:11 am
making more than 610,000 in bribes to get students from wealthy families admitted into stanford as sailing recruits in federal court where he and his family wept, his attorney asked for leniency instead of lining his own pocket, he said, he used the money to pay for sailing uniforms, boats, equipment and staff costs. >> in no way could i have used the money for personal suspenses or personal gain my actions were wrong. i see that now. >> reporter: prosecutors were unable to get a stiffer sentence, but after the hearing releasing this statement we will continue to seek meaningful penalties in these cases. with 22 defendants pleading guilty or agreeing to plead guilty, the judge's decision likely got the attention of others like felicity huffman who faces possible prison time the actress this week attending the high school graduation of her older daughter, whose college entrance exams were rigged
7:12 am
>> lori, lori, pay for my tuition! >> reporter: but some parent like hollywood celeb lori loughlin and her husband plan to fight the charges. the nation's largest college entrance cheating exam, ending for one defendant as dozens more wait to learn their fate. >> miguel, as you said there will be many more sentencing hearings what about new indictments or charges? there's always been that notion perhaps there's more to come >> reporter: that's right. we know the investigation is wide open and several more parents could be indicted. the necessary court dates for lori laughlin and felicity huffman remain sometime away we should mention while the coach didn't get prison time he is now a felon. >> thank you very much now to the new arrests and details of the shooting of david ortiz. prosecutors in the dominican republic now say he was the target of a murder-for-hire plot nbc's morgan chesky is in santo domingo with the latest on this.
7:13 am

7:42 am
holding a hearing on them today. nbc's morgan ratford is here with a real eye opener deep, deep fake, some are really good. >> really good and kind of scary good if you haven't heard of deepfakes already, you better get to know them because the technology that makes them is becoming easier to access than ever before. already, numerous doctored political videos created with simple editing techniques have been debunked, but as we're about to show you the technology used to make deepfakes is already very convincing and only getting more sophisticated >> sir elton. >> who can forget this moment at the grammy's when lady gaby acevedo honored sir elton john. >> thank you, elton. >> or when she took the stage at the golden globes with bradley cooper but look now. >> it is an honor -- >> that's not lady gaga standing next to bradley cooper

that's me, my face replacing lady gaga. >> michael douglas. >> and at the grammy's, there i am again. >> thank you, elton. i love you. >> sure, it is innocent enough, but the technology that makes this possible makes it easier than ever to manipulate video, even putting words in people's mouths it is called a deepfake. >> we're at a point right now where deepfakes are sri real et cetera tick and the technology is only going to get better. >> jeff smith studies deepfakes at the university of colorado and he made those lady gaga deepfakes for us. >> every facial expression lady gaga makes morgan makes. effectively, we've put morgan at the golden globes. >> and how did he make such a convincing fake? with free software, a regular desktop computer and some basic programming. >> this is what the software generates after about a few hours of training, and after about 24 hours of training we
7:44 am
get a much more well-defined face. >> there have already been a number of prominent deepfakes spread online, and just last week artists uploaded this deepfake video of facebook ceo mark zuckerberg delivering and only necessa ominous message. >> imagine this for a second one man with control of billions of peoples stolen data. >> with the 2020 election getting into swing, there's growing concern deepfakes could be used to disrupt u.s. elections and this has members of congress scrambling to act. >> the potential for harm is tremendous. >> congressman adam schiff, chairman of the house intelligence committee, called for a hearing on deepfakes. >> do you think that this technology could disrupt the 2020 election? >> absolutely it could and what psychologists will tell you is if you see a video of someone saying something distasteful or racist or criminal or whatever, even if you're later persuaded that wasn't them, you can never
7:45 am
completely lose the lingering negative impression of that person. >> while not a deepfake, just last month a doctored video of house speaker nancy pelosi racked up millions of views on social media this is the original >> most currently that he was engaged in a coverup. >> here is the edited video which makes it appear she is slurring her words. >> most currently that he was engaged in a coverup >> but it is not just washington hollywood is taking notice, too. actresses like alyssa milano, gal godot and johansson have had their faces plastered on other women's bodies in pornographic videos in a statement in december to "the washington post", johannason wrote nothing can stop someone from cutting and pasting my image or anyone else's on to a different body and making it look as eerily realistic as desired and with the technology rapidly evolving, smith says it is getting harder to dwrish the real and the fake.
7:46 am
although there are still some telltale signs of a fake. >> so if you are looking at something that might be a deepfake you will see there's blurriness, less detail or definition in the eyes but for what it is worth, morgan is now at the golden globes with bradley cooper presenting an award. >> you looked great with bradley there. >> thank you, and blonde hair? >> seriously, there's a story on the website right now,, about a guy in czechoslovakia producing these videos as well that are eerily good the videos that originate in other countries, in foreign countries, what can be done about them what can be done about the ones here >> that's great question we reached out to facebook and youtube and they said they're working to update their technology and policies to combat disinformation. but the house intelligence committee, which is meeting hours from now, says they're working on tracking and sourcing those videos, because especially when they're made on foreign soil it is something they have to be concerned about because they're not exactly sure what role the u.s. can play.
7:47 am
>> all right >> it is so disturbing, and especially when you are talking about the election upon us people have to be very good consumers and smart and shrewd about what they're looking at and ask good questions morgan, thank you very much. >> good story, morgan. thank you very much. still ahead, what happens when you turn professional organizers lose on the messiest part of your house savannah guthrie just found out. wait until you see the results eye opening, is that fair? >> yes, eye opening and to dab my tears of joy when it was all done. >> first, these messages ♪
