killed by a drone strike, by president trump was brought to his hometown this morning, for burial. iranian state tv reports, that dozens were killed in a stampede that broke out at the funeral. amid the crushing sea of mourners, the head of iran's revolutionary guard making explicit threats saying, we will our enemies we will retaliate. but if they take another action, we will set ablaze the places they like and are passionate about. president trump putting up threats of his own. if iran does retaliate, it would be disproportionate. and even against cultural sites. but his defense secretary, acknowledging the laws of war. prohibit attacks on iconic cultural heritage. the u.n. secretary-general, says he hasn't seen the world so full of risk. >> geopolitical tension hes are at their highest level this century and disturbances are
escalating. >> reporter: overnight, the department of homeland security, issued a general warning, that iran could respond with cyber attacks, improvised bombs, drones, attacks on civilians or use one of its armed proxies. around the u.s. or around the globe. nothing specific. but a clear expression of concern. the americans are sending in troops as reinforcements. in baghdad, troops are hunkering down in training missions and spreading confusion. the pentagon last night, scrambled to correct a letter that strongly suggested all u.s. forces would be leaving iraq for onward movement. defense officials say it was poorly worded and a mistake, saying only a few hundred trainers and administrative personnel are leaving baghdad for safer areas. mainly in kuwait. and this morning in baghdad, a large mural of qasem soleimani
is now hanging from an apartment building facing the u.s. embassy. so u.s. officials literally coming face to face with the man they ordered to be killed. >> richard, perhaps surprising news out of israel and prime minister netanyahu, close ally of the president, and his reaction to the killing of general soleimani. >> netanyahu has long called for action to be taken against iran. so far, israel has been quiet. and netanyahu told his cabinet that israel had nothing to do with this action. that it was american action taken alone. and that israel does not want to get dragged into it. savannah? >> richard engel in the region for us, thank you. the president is defending that strike. and democrats are defending more answers. the white house is set to brief congressional leaders today. peter alexander picks up the story there. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. it is the fundamental challenge at the heart of the president's argument here.
for years, insisting that the intelligence agencies are not to be trusted. and now asking americans to believe, without seeing the evidence, those very same agencies that iran's top general posed an imminent threat. president trump justifying a decision to order a military strike killing qasem soleimani, saying he was the number one terrorist in the world. >> this should have been done the last 15, 20 years. we're safer because of taking him out. >> reporter: many americans remain unconvinced, including house committee chairman, adam schiff. >> i'm not at all confident that this was the right decision. i think it was a very dangerous roll of the dice by the president. >> reporter: schiff telling nbc news that the house should hold public hearings on soleimani's death and its ripple effects. >> why we're sending troops stott region, what the prospects of war are, they seem to be
increased. >> reporter: later today, the top congressional leaders, the so-called gang of eight. soleimani posed an imminent threat. >> if this president did not act with those facts before him, that would be negligent. >> reporter: democrats are pushing for a resolution that would require the president seek congressional approval before taking further military action. >> every member of congress should vote and be accountable for the question of whether another war in the middle east is a good idea. >> reporter: the senate's top republican accusing democrats of politicizing national security. >> some of our colleagues rushed to blame our own government before even knowing the facts. and rushed to downplay soleimani's evil while presenting our own president as the villain. >> peter, what is expected this afternoon at the congressional briefing? >> yes, savannah, the top congressional leaders will be briefed on iran. they will ask a lot of questions about that intelligence, the administration's assertion this
was an imminent threat. while the house and senate will get their own briefings tomorrow from top trump administration officials, including the secretaries of defense and state as well as the head of the cia. savannah? >> peter alexander at the white house, thank you, peter. >> craig now joins the table. another big dispute in washington. >> yes, good morning. lawmakers are also at odds over what comes next in the impeachment showdown. while they remain deadlocked over a senate trial, a potential bombshell witness now says he's prepared to testify if he's subpoenaed. nbc white house correspondent kristen welker has more on that story. good morning. >> that potential bombshell witness -- and good morning to you -- is john bolton, and if he testifies, it could be a game-changer. he's the former national security adviser who has firsthand knowledge of the ukraine controversy that first launched the impeachment inquiry. what witnesses say he described as a drug deal but the question this morning, will americans
ever hear from him? this morning former national security adviser john bolton back in the spotlight after a dramatic reversal monday, announcing he is prepared to testify if subpoenaed by the senate. bolton had initially refused to testify, saying it was up to a judge to decide. bolton, who left the white house in september, witnessed key moments related to the issue at the heart of the impeachment inquiry. the president's decision to withhold military aid to ukraine in exchange for ukraine investigating the bidens. top democrats insisting bolton's testimony is critical, and they argue, any attempt by republicans to block him is a cover-up. >> what are you hiding, president trump? what are you afraid of, president trump? >> and while most republicans oppose hearing from bolton, insisting their role is not to relaunch another investigation -- >> house democrats are treating impeachment like a political toy. >> reporter: at least one republican senator, mitt romney, said he wants to hear from the
former national security adviser. >> i ultimately expect i want to hear from john bolton. he has firsthand information and i think that's something i would like to hear. >> reporter: democrats argue the fact bolton may testify validates the strategy of delaying the articles of impeachment, which house speaker nancy pelosi said she's doing until the terms of the senate trial are fair. >> without a doubt, you know, have we rushed to a trial, i don't think we would have seen bolton come forward the way he did. >> reporter: during a radio interview monday the president did not mention bolton gut instead took aim at the democrats and the process. >> the reason they're upset is they're a joke. there are not crimes. there's nothing there. >> reporter: now the reality check here, it's not clear the republican-led senate will subpoena bolton to testify. and in order to bring him in as a witness, four republicans would need to vote with republicans and it's not clear they have those votes, craig? >> kristen welker from the white house, thank you.
and another story breaking overnight. a series of powerful earthquakes and aftershocks have rocked puerto rico. damage and one death is being reported. sam brock joins us with the very latest from there. hey, sam. >> hoda, good morning. officials with the usgs say this morning's earthquake, which struck about 4:30 local time is the largest in a series of earthquakes that struck the island. they're calling the it main shock, all from the same location, part of the same sequence. officials say we're not really going to know the extent of the damage until the sun comes up today but we just confirmed a 77-year-old person has died when the walls came crashing down and at least two other people are injured. the 6.4 magnitude earthquake, hitting puerto rico this morning, five miles of the southwestern coast. it's the largest quake to hit the region since 1970. the power authority tweeting that one of the power plants is
damaged. its aftershocks are being felt this morning. it's the strongest series of quakes striking the u.s. the territory in the last week. puerto rico. this morning's quake comes one day after a 5.8 magnitude tremor struck on monday, causing power outages, collapsing home and creating small landslides. and destroying popular tourist landmarks, such as a stone arch hailed for its natural wonder on the island. this series of quakes come as the island is still recovering from hurricane marie in 2017, the electrical grid in puerto rico still fragile since that storm, which shredded the island apart, becoming one of the worst natural disasters in u.s. history. and the united states national tsunami warning center said there's no threat of a tsunami this morning. the governor of puerto rico saying all nonessential
employees are from the government are excused from work today. >> sam brock, thank you. now, to the desperate fight of the wildfires tearing through australia. we'll show you a map and show you where the fires are burning. 130 burn right now. this has led the u.s. to send additional help. and meanwhile, the largest funding campaign in facebook's history is under way. janice mackie is in australia for us. good morning. >> savannah, good morning. more american firefighters will reach here tomorrow to join these fires. where we are, there's not a hint of green left in this forest. you can see the trees are still kicking off embers and extreme conditions are set to return. that's a worry about people who are exhausted by this crisis but it's a disaster for wildlife and animals. he and wandered from the trees, disoriented, the young koala got
a drink from a young truck driver and firefighter. the animals are facing an unprecedented threat. >> sadly that leaves all populations almost devoid of almost any members. it's going to be a really bigger problem as time goes by the way the fires are continuing and the wildlife continue to be dissipated. >> reporter: the images are heart breaking, the iconic koalas and kangaroos fleeing the plains. >> thirsty. >> reporter: survivors left to scrounge for food and water, people doing what they can to help. chad staples, a zoo director, used buckets of water to keep flames away from the animals and sheltered dozens of smaller species inside his house. >> the animals couldn't protect themselves, they had no one. so that gave you that drive. that gave you a little extra to keep going. >> reporter: australia has always had wildfires but this
year's started earlier and spread along the coast and inland to mountain forests and vast parks. scientists point to rising temperatures to climate change increasing waves and droughts here, creating extreme conditions for fires that could wipe out species of plants and animals completely. across the worst-hit state here, volunteers work as wildlife care caregivers. animals come here to recovery but will struggle to return to habitats that are destroyed. >> it's not their fault for the climate change and what humans have done to the globe. they're the ones suffering the most. >> reporter: authorities today charged 24 people with deliberately setting fires. now temperatures are set to rise again over the next couple of days. the wind is always cairn and there is no sign of rain in the forecast here. so those are all of the conditions that people have come to dread. guys?

his criminal trial continues today in new york. and in l.a., new sex crime charges filed against weinstein. stephanie gosk is watching this for us steph, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the announcement catching a lot of people by surprise in los angeles. the charges in l.a., forcible rape and battery in convicted he faces up to 28 years in prison. but beyond time behind bars, this new case means if he's acquitted here in new york, he won't be off the hook. this morning, a new case against harvey weinstein >> we believe the evidence will show that the defendant used his power and influence to gain access to his victims and committed violent crimes against them >> reporter: the charges in los angeles, connected to two incidents in 2013. prosecutors say weinstein raped a woman after pushing his way inside her hotel room. and then, the next night, sexually assaulted another woman in a beverly hills hotel suite
>> it was very challenging to get those victims to open up and tell us what they needed to tell us >> reporter: weinstein hasn't commented but previously said all of his sexual encounters were consensual. before the new charges were announced, his legal team questioned the l.a. prosecutor's next move. >> the timing would be suspect mr. weinstein is looking to getting this case out of the way. >> reporter: his other accusers, celebrating the news, including caitlin delaney. >> it feels like justice >> reporter: who says weinstein sexually assaulted her in 1996 >> it justifies our bravery and courage for speaking out it justifies everything we went
through. >> reporter: neither woman linked to the l.a. charges, has revealed her identity. one is set to testify in the new york trial to help prosecutors demonstrate what they say is weinstein's pattern of sexual abuse. a trial that is now officially under way, weinstein has pleaded not guilty to the charges, including rape, connected to allegations from two other women. fellow accusers, not part of the criminal trial, stood in solidarity monday, outside of court. >> while the emotion of the day runs high, i join the brave women that are harmed by harvey weinstein, to say, we aren't going anywhere >> dear, harvey, no matter what lies you tell yourself, you did this today, lady justice is staring down a superpredator -- you. >> reporter: today, the attention turns to jury selection. >> we're here hoping to find and pick a fair jury we believe that will be possible we would like to remind everyone that in this great country, you're innocent until proven guilty >> reporter: weinstein can't appear in court in los angeles until the case in new york is
complete the judge needs to decide if weinstein will remain out on bail since prosecutors in l.a. filed an arrest warrant. prosecutors are still there investigating allegations from three other women. >> stephanie, thank you. megan twohey broke the story, in her book, "she said. good morning to you. it was stunning. and the timing, the very day that the new york trial is getting under way, here comes l.a. with two serious charges. is that a coincidence of timing? >> it certainly was stunning and what we know is one of the women in the l.a. charges, the woman in the underlying rape allegation, had reported to the l.a. police in october of 2017 it's been over two years that they had that particular case. why are they bringing the
charges now? we can't answer that with certainty. we know that weinstein's defense team had suggested that if additional charges were brought during the criminal trial, they might seek to use that as a reason to get the trial dismissed. >> let's talk about the two, new accusers that have come forward in the los angeles case. both are anonymous, is that right? >> right >> and i think -- you know the story better than i do, one of the most serious and disturbing allegations leveled against harvey weinstein >> that's right. she tells a story of meeting harvey weinstein at a film festival in beverly hills in 2013 and him showing up at her hotel room that night, uninvited, forcing himself into her room and really forcibly attacking her, pulling her hair, dragging her into a bathroom not just kind of coercion. but real, real force >> let's talk about how the cases play together. one of the accusers in the los
angeles case is also set to testify in the new york case to establish this pattern of predatory behavior that speaks to, presumibly, prosecutors think it's a strong account. >> that's what's so interesting about the l.a. charges, they provided us into a window of who one of the witnesses is going to be in the new york trial a lot of the victim witnesses are question marks going into the trial. we now know some of the details of that particular woman she alleges that she was assaulted by weinstein in 2013, the night after the woman claims she was raped in l.a she's got an interesting story that's recent. one of the things, are they going to ask jurors to go back 10 years, 20 years, or a more recent encounter and that's most significant about her allegation >> and one of the l.a. accusers, also, told others
contemporaneously, according to reports, often in rape cases, the outcry witnesses can bolste happened. and apparently l.a. investigators traveled an account >> that's right. the woman with the rape allegation in l.a., according to news reports, told three people she's from italy and living in italy at the time. she told three people, including a priest, about what allegedly happened and apparently l.a. investigators traveled to italy at the time she made this report in 2017, i think to gather up the witness statements >> we'll continue to watch it, especially with you, megan appreciate it. hoda and craig over to you >> thank you still ahead on a tuesday morning, a major overhaul to protect your children and their privacy on youtube we'll show you what kids will and will not see when they use the popular site that's after this.

feelings by eating something away, all it does is make me feel worse about myself if i have been able to maintain this weight for a few years, i can maintain a different weight for a few years. there's a reason i have gained weight and it's emotional. this is just a symptom of how unhappy i have let myself, you know, feel ever become i'm not going to let any mistakes i make in 2020 define me as a failure. i will find a different way to look at it, a little thing i do in my head, if i'm saying something negative to myself, i will see it as a minus sign and immediately put a plus on it and then think of something positive. >> what are you looking to improve upon in the new year >> my attitude because if i get on the scale in the morning and it's a good number or number that looks like it's improving, i will be like great, i can take it easy today. or if it's a number that's really bad and i wished i had not done whatever i did the night before, it will be like oh, well, screw it.
>> how will you work towards finding the true joy >> i want the "today" show audience to help me. i think if we lean on people and when the "today" show audience is going through something and they have a trick they can help me with, or if i find a trick i can help them with, i think we can do it together. >> and so this journey begins. >> i'm setting a let me feel good in my jeans goal. however the jeans feel, i want to just -- i want to know what true joy feels like. let me just feel jeans like jeans are supposed to feel, you know, comfortable. >> which first and foremost means accepting the slipups. >> something always goes wrong for everything that goes right, things are still going wrong but it's about moving forward. >> how much of this has to do with the milestone birthday coming up this spring? >> i mean, i'm going to hit 60 time to get your act together. time to enjoy this beautiful, blessed life i have.

today" with valerie bertinelli she will be sharing her wellness journey with us over the next few months she has created tailored meal plans, including a seven-day menu you can find it on today.com/starttoday and on top of all of that, valerie is inviting you to share yours. >> help me >> good morning. >> this is a two-way street.
we want help from the audience the first recipe is italian wedding soup i love it. but it can be with the pasta and the greasy meatball. maybe it's not that healthy. >> a little high in the carr count. what i'm really trying to do is cut back on the carbs, really cut back on the sugar and really pump up some veggies what we're going to start with is the meatballs i've got an onion in here. an onion in here, some garlic, some parsley and you're going to get that chopped up this thing will save your life so you don't have to sit and chop forever you want turkey, dark meat or life meat, whichever you prefer. and bunch of parmesan cheese. >> mind your manners because martha's over there. >> i know. >> valerie is like, no pressure. >> this can be pretty sticky so sometimes i will use a two-spoon method and just get them going like that and form them. or you can use this little guy but i broke mine right before i
was testing this recipe. >> a melon slicer. >> or ice cream maker. >> and it's turkey meat so it's lighter. >> it is lighter but we're still having a lot of healthy fat in there parmesan cheese is great because it lower in fat but has saltiness. we got our meatballs, put them into this pan and get them nice and brown. >> little oil in there. >> little oil but tablespoon of olive oil, healthy, good fat for you. all of the meatballs go in obviously, there will be a lot more meatballs than this you just get those browned on every side we're not going to have time for all of that but i want to show you next what happens. so take all of these meatballs out and put them to the side then you want to start the pace of your soup, mirepoix, onion and celery
so you want to get them nice and small. and then get a little oil in there if you need some so it sops it up then get the mirepoix in here. >> is this the country pot that had the meatballs? >> same pot. don't dirty a bunch of pots either this is pretty much a one-pan meal once those get softened the onions and carrots and celery, you want to add in a couple -- >> the whole thing >> whole thing, chickaen broth o stock. >> i thought they were the same thing? >> chicken broth is not made with bones, is that right, martha oh, look she's eating my soup. >> i think it's light and tasty and vegetables are good, perfectly cooked are they turkey meatballs? >> turkey meatballs with a lot of parm. >> i like that. >> and then we add the meatballs
back in for a nice -- it's not wedding soup without escarole. but i suggest you really clean these guys out because they can get really muddy what i will do is chop it all up and put it into my salad spinner and give it a couple washes and it's good and throw all of that in there it's going to feel like a big mound of escarole. but it slowly starts to wilt. >> you corner it or just leave it hanging >> leave it open and pop it down with your tongues or whatever you're using and then this gorgeous soup is beautiful. >> traditional italian wedding soup would have pasta. >> cute little pasta like oorzio or pearls. >> i, carson daly here, longtime listener, first-time caller. valerie, going back to the meatballs, do you fully cook them or take them out slightly under known they will be in hot broth? >> take them out slightly under and build your soup. as the soup simgers back up again, the meatballs will cook
for you. >> how long do you keep it all in there >> it doesn't really matter. depends on how long it takes for the escarole to wilt down. >> got it. good tip take them out a little early. >> thank you. >> you stole mine! >> i know. >> thank you very much, valerie. i'm so happy we're on this journey together you really inspired us for that recipe and entire seven-night dinner plan, go to today.com/starttoday valerie's coming back in the fourth hour. but first, suzanne somers on the very good morning to you. it is 8:56. laura garcia. today is first day back from winter break for students at dublin. they'll return with heavy hearts, mourning the taet of three classmates -- death of three classmates in a car class. they died when their car struck a tree and then a utility pole.
