10:01 am
grip on the iraqi city. we want to start here at home with hillary clinton where the candidate took questions from reporters for the first time in weeks. kristin welker asked hillary clinton about paid speeches about conflict of interests and use of private e-mail while secretary of state. >> was there conflict of interest in giving paid speeches into the runup of your announcement you're running for president? >> the answer to the second is no. the answer to first is i have said repeatedly i want e-mails out. nobody has a bigger interest in getting them released than i do. i respect the state department. they have their process they do for everybody not just for me. but anything they might do to expedite that process, i heartily support. >> clinton defended her work with the clinton foundation and said she'll let voters decide if anything improper happened. >> i'm so proud of the foundation. i'm proud of the work that it has done and is doing. it attracted donations from
10:02 am
people organizations from around the world. i think that just goes to show people are very supportive of the life saving and life changing work its done here at home and elsewhere. i'll let the american people make their own judgment. >> in regard to e-mail history, the state department had this to say moments ago. >> there was a court order issued this morning which directed the department to provide certain information within a week. that's what we're referring to. this includes directing the department to impose a schedule for rolling productions of secretary clinton's e-mails. we take our legal obligations seriously and will comply to the order. >> alex is following the clinton campaign and joins me live from cedar falls iowa. we should ex plain the judge said
10:03 am
the state department cannot wait until 2016 for the release. tell us what forced hillary clinton to break her silence. why did she take reporter's questions today? >> reporter: that's right thomas. it's been 28 days since hillary clinton answered a question from the press. the pressure has definitely been mounting. the washington post has been running counter on their website counting down days minutes seconds since clinton answered. opponents have been attack ago her. -- been attacking her. i think the campaign recognized it was time for her to address questions and guilty or innocent there. she doesn't typically do this at all. she spoke for five minutes with reporters before leaving. there was many questions left to answer. she did address top things on our minds. >> top being also about iran. she discussed that, true? >> reporter: that's right. this question has been imposed to candidates in the last few
10:04 am
weeks. she acknowledged the question, knowing what you know now, would you have invaded iraq? clinton said she regrets her vote to authorize the iraq war. that was a major issue in the campaign in 2008 against president obama. possibly cost her the election. she says she regrets it. she said the situation is obviously dangerous and has changed a lot. she would not say what she would do other than saying she regretted her decision. >> alex, great to see you. thank you sir. how will all the talks surrounding the e-mails impact her candidacy in 2016? francis has the bing pulse question of the day. >> interesting. how many more will come and follow and who will come to see what she will say.
10:05 am

10:06 am
campaign. we're going live to iowa to talk to ok henderson news director at radio iowa. we shift gears and take you to texas. investigators are working to process the crime scene of the biker brawl that killed nine bikers. meanwhile, we're learning more about what may have led to the brawl. police say it started when an uninvited gang showed up to the planned meeting between invited gang members. >> i have additional information that may go beyond a parking incident to somebody had their foot run over and started the disturbance in the parking lot. >> so 170 suspects, all said to be members of rival gangs, are now in custody, each held on $1 million bond. their charge engaging in organized crime. this the aftermath of that deadly brawl police have been on
10:07 am
high alert for retaliation. they say now that a threat has diminished. >> there have been credible, reliable threats towards law enforcement in and around our area. i will tell you those have toned down a bit in the last 24 hours. we're absolutely thankful of that. >> charles joins us live from waco texas. we heard this may have started by someone's foot being run over. what more do we know about that? >> reporter: yeah thomas. 48 hours ago right now this restaurant parking lot was filled with 135 motorcycles. they were cram into this area. apparently one of the motorcyclists foot got run over by another motorcycle. that started altercation in the parking lot. at almost the same time there was another altercation in the bathroom. that fight spread out into the restaurant then weapons drawn. knives, chains brass knuckles and guns.
10:08 am
that's when the police got involved. >> sounds like a lot more to come from this story. we'll talk about it more. we go back to francis with a look at bandidos past. it's fascinating how these come together collectively, what common interests are and what we played out over the weekend is amazing. >> they're no stranger to crime. bandidos is one of the two largest gangs in the united states. they have 2500 members here and also 13 other countries. let's look at their history of violence beginning with this day, september 2, 1984 in sydney, australia. it was called father's day massacre. seven are killed in re battle. a former police officer said the two biker gangs declared war on each other. february 20, 1985 a massive
10:09 am
bandidos raid across nine states. more than 70 members were arrested. charges ranged from narcotics, weapons, racketeering. now to what's called the great nordic war. the chapter in denmark expanded. a war erupted. in the end, 11 were killed and more than 70 others injured. next up, april 2006 what police call cleansing of the biker gangs. six men were convicted of murder in 2009. thomas, the justice department says the bandidos are growing threat to the united states. in 2011, feds charged 40 members for drugs and other offenses.
10:10 am
this won't be the last we hear from bandidos and other gangs. >> seems they've flown under the radar until now. thanks so much. coming up in 30 minutes we'll talk to the journalist who's written about motorcycle gangs. we ask you to stay tuned for that. today president obama is taking hits about his policy. criticism from republicans and the president's former defense secretary. >> when a major city in iraq ramadi gets overrun by isil and the administration says that's a temporary setback. it's 70 mile from baghdad. it's time for the president to get serious about this threat. >> given the environment that i think we're going to face in the middle east, i think the first thing is we don't have a strategy at all. we're basically sort of playing this day-to-day. >> all right.
10:11 am
that was robert bgates, former for president obama and president bush. he calls the fall of ramadi a setback. shia militias backed by irana iran must back the area. the new york times had a really interesting article basically saying isis was able to use a sand storm as cover. any estimates on when militias may engage isis? >> that's interesting tom massas. isis will use cloud cover to move weapons afternoon. drones can penetrate the cloud cover. u.s. aircraft can't or won't bomb through it. isis use that to attack ramadi.
10:12 am
shia militia men are said to be assembled at bases close to ramadi to capture the city. we've got no independent confirmation but the news agency is reporting tanks and artillery have been sent to ramadi. they're planning for what they call battle of anbar. they're waiting for advice from teheran. most militias are backed and financed by iran. no sign that battle to retake ramadi is any way imminent. >> bill neely, thank you. appreciate it. we want to go to breaking news happening here in boston. bob kraft, patriot's owner. he is talking about deflategate. >> going to be disappointed in that decision.
10:13 am
i hope they trust my judgment and know that i really feel at this point in time that taking this off the agenda, this is the best thing for the patriots, our fans, and the nfl. and i hope you all can respect that. you know, i would normally take questions, but my desire is truly not to continue the rhetoric. so i'm going to leave this discussion exactly here. thank you very much. >> all right. so listening there to bob kraft patriot's owner saying he's not going to appeal the $1 million fine and loss of a couple of draft picks. this is different than the appeal tom brady filed last week
10:14 am
before the 5:00 deadline i believe on thursday. he was able to meet the deadline for the appeal of his four game suspension. hearing from bob kraft, as a team owner, they're not going to appeal the punishment against them which is interesting. you'll remember out of the wells report belichick and bob kraft were exonerated they knew anything about the underinflated ball. more out of that report came to point fingers at personnel in charge of staffing and also that a it was more improbable than not that tom brady knew about what was taking place with the people with the sports equipment. the big story here that bob kraft is not filing appeal to nfl against his teal. more when we come back. hillary clinton is tries to set
10:15 am
the record straight about her wanting her e-mails when secretary of state released to the public. don't forget to weigh in on our bing pulse question of the day. plus the major break through in the wildly popular serial pod cast series that opens the door for new testimony in this case. you've got to hear this. we'll get you the latest developments in the philly train derailment investigation as the new upgrades are out. yes, ideas are scary and messy and fragile. but under the proper care, they become something beautiful. if you have moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis like me and you're talking to your rheumatologist about a biologic... this is humira. this is humira helping to relieve my pain
10:16 am
and protect my joints from further damage. this is humira giving me new perspective. doctors have been prescribing humira for ten years. humira works for many adults. it targets and helps to block a specific source of inflammation that contributes to ra symptoms. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers including lymphoma have happened, as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. talk to your doctor and visit humira.com this is humira at work

10:19 am
basically teasing reporters that yes she would finally take questions after 28 days of not fielding questions on the trail. minutes later she spoke for five minutes and covered topics about controversies on her e-mails as well as the clinton foundation and what to do in iraq. >> i know there's been a lot of questions about iraq posed to candidates in the weeks. i've made it very clear i made a mistake, plain and simple. i have written about it in my book talked about it in the past. what we now see is a very different and dangerous situation. the united states is doing what it can but ultimately this has to be a struggle the iraqi government and iraqi people are determined to win for themselves. we can provide support, but they're going to have to do it. >> ok henderson news director at radio iowa and joins us now.
10:20 am
great to have you. explain how these conditions impact and concern the voters of iowa right now. >> well, it is a unifying issue for those in iowa. candidates here over the weekend mentioned it. among democrats, it will become an issue if one of the competitors that comes to iowa and meets democrats makes it an issue. right now it's not a huge issue for democrats. if someone like jim web, comes to iowa has foreign policy credentials himself and starts to make this issue on the campaign trail, then it might percolate. right now no. >> clinton was also asked specifically about the specific trade deal supported by obama and opposed by democrats. is this a big issue for hillary clinton as iowa voters get to know her? >> as always pocketbook issues really motivate voters.
10:21 am
that is where folks like martin o'malley who spent a lot of time here started to create a distance between how he would approach wall street reform and trying to contrast that a with perhaps the approach that hillary clinton would make. >> well, and what do you think about the fact she finally broke her silence 28 days in in? everything has been orchestrated for her on the campaign trail. do you think this was a good performance by hillary clinton fielding questions on the fly? >> well it certainly seemed to be a tipping point. it had become sort of a cause among all of the republican competitors who had been out here steaming up the air ways with their criticism of hillary clinton. potential iowa caucus goers were hearing this drum beat from republicans that hillary clinton was not answering questions. when she's in iowa, she answered questions. so now iowa voters will hear
10:22 am
when she was in their state she took questions. >> o kay henderson, appreciate it. >> sure. a housekeeper sends a message hours before she's murdered. burglars climbed down the elevator shaft and busted through the concrete. seven men were arrested after 20 officers raided a dozen locations. no word on exactly how much of the $200 million haul was found. officials say a large number of bags containing significant amounts of high value property have been recovered. at the forefront of advanced electronics. providing technology to get more detail... ♪ ♪ detect hidden threats... ♪ ♪ see the whole picture... ♪ ♪ process critical information and put it in the hands of our defenders.
10:23 am
reaching constantly evolving threats before they reach us. that's the value of performance. northrop grumman. across america people, like basketball hall of famer dominique wilkins, are taking charge of their type 2 diabetes... ...with non-insulin victoza. for a while, i took a pill to lower my blood sugar but it didn't get me to my goal. so i asked my doctor about victoza. he said victoza works differently than pills and comes in a pen. victoza is proven to lower blood sugar and a1c. it's taken once a day, any time.
10:24 am
and the needle is thin. victoza is not for weight loss but it may help you lose some weight. victoza is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. it is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. victoza has not been studied with mealtime insulin. victoza is not insulin. do not take victoza if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include swelling of face lips, tongue or throat fainting or dizziness, very rapid heartbeat problems breathing or swallowing, severe rash or itching. tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck. serious side effects may happen in people who take victoza including inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis)
10:25 am
which may be fatal. stop taking victoza and call your doctor right away if you have signs of pancreatitis, such as severe pain that will not go away in your abdomen or from your abdomen to your back with or without vomiting. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. taking victoza with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. the most common side effects are nausea, diarrhea, and headache. some side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. if your pill isn't giving you the control you need... ask your doctor about non-insulin victoza. it's covered by most health plans. i don't want to continue the rhetoric that's gone on last four months. i'm going to accept reluctantly what he has given to us and not
10:26 am
continue this dialogue and rhetoric. we won't appeal. >> so that was patriot's owner robert kraft addressing the media saying the team will not appeal the punishment handed down by nfl over the deflategate controversy. joining me by phone, jason page with nbc sports radio and about mike barnacle with us in a second. jason, let's start with you. how big of a deal is this bob saying he's not going to appeal? are you surprised by that? >> i'm not incredibly surprised. if he chooses to appeal and loses the appeal he's looking at a situation he has to go to courts s courts. if you're going to sue nfl, you're suing fellow owners. i don't think bob wanted to go with that option. where this becomes interesting is how it affects tom brady. bob may not appeal, but brady is
10:27 am
sure to appeal because of salary loss and what it could do to his reputation. if you're tom brady, you're alone on an island. >> tom brady's legacy is at stake especially after the super bowl win. mike what do you think the demeanor of bob kraft says about how he processed this? earlier he wanted apology from nfl going after brady and his team. this seems like a much more calm bob kraft. >> i think it's realistic bob kraft more than call. once going to san francisco to the owner's meetings he realized absolutely then and on his way out to san francisco, that he wasn't going to get a lot of support from other nfl owners. he is one of the owners been there 21 years. he lived through the last stages
10:28 am
of al davis owner, former owner of the oakland a's who did sue. bob is not that type of person. he's a firm believer of the union of 32. what would he get out of appeal any way? half a million dollars fine and maybe one draft pick instead of two. he was going to be there on the record. he took his losses and continued on. >> do you agree with jason's analysis that tom brady is on an island now with his appeal? >> i agree he's alone. i don't know if i'd describe it as being on an island. i would disagree going forward whether he wins or loses appeal, whether he gets reduced to two games, i don't thinkbz
10:29 am
she said she received a voice message from mrs. savopoulos the night before the fire. >> it said i hope you get this message. my wife is sick, son is sick.
10:30 am
vera offered to stay overnight. her phone is dead. >> she says at 9:30 the next morning, slain housekeeper vera's husband calls. then the husband calls and says she's not there. 9:57 a.m., nellie receives a text from mrs. savopoulos telling her not to come to work. nbc analyst joins me now. nbc has not been able to verify the account from the other housekeeper. what is the time line of events suggest may have happened? >> well it sounds like thomas we had a home invasion. sounds like perhaps the family had been surveyed. this is the president's neighborhood down the street from where he lives.
10:31 am
there's been strange activity in the neighborhood. there was overaggressive salespeople banging on doors. one of the victim's cars apparently was stolen by the invaders and then was torched. so what it looks like is probably some time wednesday one or more people came to the door under some type of fuse, able to get into the house took the family captive, took them up to the second floor. this is terrible but we saw it in '06 with a family in richmond in '07 a family where they were tortured, gas poured on them and house set on fire by the invaders. this may have been the same type of case. authorities have a lot going for them. we have a picture of somebody that likely dumped the car they stole. there's a possibility of a lot
10:32 am
of forensic evidence that could come from that house thomas. >> let's talk about the grainy surveillance video we've seen. you mentioned the family a porsche found 15 minutes a way from the house. do you think this is the first big break? >> that's one of -- it's hard to go any place in this country you and i don't come under some type of camera. grocery store, gas station neighbors likely have surveillance outside their homes. law enforcement is tracing the route from the house to where the car was recovered burned out looking for surveillance, pictures they can find. in the meantime the normal csi type of things. fingerprints, dna and other types of evidence. >> we shall continue to watch this. it really is a murder mystery unfolding in washington d.c. former fbi profiler, thanks.
10:33 am
coming up the never ending war. i'm going to talk to the journalist with unique incite into the world of biker gangs. the citi double cash card. it earns you cash back now and cash back later. with 1% when you buy and 1% as you pay. with two ways to earn on purchases,
10:34 am
it makes a lot of other cards seem one-sided.
10:35 am
right now, verizon is offering unlimited talk and text. plus 10 gigs of shareable data. yeah, 10 gigantic gigs. for $80 a month. and $15 per line. more data than ever. for more of what you want. on the network that's #1 in speed, call, data, and liability. so you never have to settle. $80 a month. for 10 gigs. and $15 per line. stop by or visit us online.
10:36 am
and save without settling. only on verizon. breaking news from the pentagon. u.s. officials are tracking two warships that have is linked up with a cargo ship off the coast of yemen. are they carrying humanitarian aid or weapons for the rebels? we are live from the pentagon with mick. what do you know? >> there's a iranian warship. they claim it's carrying humanitarian relief for yemen. if it were carrying weapons and trying to deliver those to yemen, it would violate the arms embargo in yemen. the helicopter carrier is shadowing the group wondering.
10:37 am
u.s. officials aren't certain they'll try to intercept and inspect the ship. it's also believe had the the iranian ship may be carrying humanitarian relief and that for propaganda purposes there are observers a board that iranian ship. for propaganda purposes, iranians are baiting the u.s. to board and inspect the ship. it's a tough decision to make. if they don't intercept that could set a dangerous precedent for future interceptions and inspections. >> we'll see who gives in. we want to update the biker brawl in texas. fish officials are in the process of removing vehicles and motorcycles from the parking
10:38 am
lot. 170 suspects are in jail on $1 million bond each. nine were killed, 18 injured. among the dead are members of bandidos and others. this morning my colleague spoke to a former gang member about the two groups. >> last year they decided they were sick and tired of bandidos telling them what to do. they decided to put on this. this has been building quite some time. >> julian is a producer with the canadian broadcasting network and author of several books on bike gangs. it's fascinating finding out the details of what took place in waco. when you hear about this brawl is this typically how motorcycle gangs operate about a turf war
10:39 am
and are they armed typically like what we saw over the weekend in waco? >> absolutely. you know, the myth of outlaws bikers that occasionally get trouble but fun troublemakers finally explodes when we see something like waco. a casino brawl killed people in 2002. the bandidos and hell's angels killed more than is 100 in canada. the clip you played think about it. talking about a stencil lettering of the word texas. the cops were saying the part of the incident may have started with a foot being run over in the parking lot. these are armed organized crime gangs. when one of them gets hurt, they'll all stand up as soldiers. bandidos use the slogan you cut one of us, we all bleed.
10:40 am
we're seeing an awful lot of blood out will there. >> is the history between cossacks and bandidos always been bad blood? >> bandidos are second only to hell's angels. cossacks are minor players. it doesn't matter if it's cossacks this week and another gang next week. i say guys recreational club members don't take out guns and start shooting at their enemies in a public place. that's the issue. they have a long history of criminal ality criminality. >> you say they see hell's
10:41 am
angels as being too nice. this is about violence. >> i talked to one gang member. he said it's sense of power. you put on the jacket and walk in the bar and know everybody is afraid of you. they found gangs that you and i might find fearful as timid. the nice image the hell's angels try to do. bandidos play on that and see themselves as bad. it's a recruitment drive for the bandidos. this adds to their a lure as the meanest of the heene. >> great point. great to have you on. thanks for your insight. investigators don't know if anything struck amtrak 188 before it derailed and killed people last week. the possibility of a gunshot is ruled out. fbi agents performed forensic
10:42 am
work on a fracture on the left side of the train's windshield. you see it circle there had. mean tile the national transportation safety board trying to figure out why the train accelerated before this crash. ntsb says it could be a year before they determine the kauchltzcause. in the meantime amtrak getting hit with more lawsuits. a conductor of the train is suing for damages. another story we're following and watching is hillary clinton talking in iowa about the e-mail controversy dogging her presidential campaign. she fielded questions from the media and spoke about it on the campaign trail. francis back now tracking responses to our bing pulse question of the day and big one about the e-mail. >> she took this impromptu q&a. wasn't planned but did take questions one of which about the e-mail saying i want to get them out. we're asking you on our bing
10:43 am
pulse question of the day. will hillary clinton's e-mail controversy impact your vote? this has changed since we last checked in. you've seen this grow from single digits up to 17% those of you that say yes, it will impact your vote when it comes to hillary clinton's e-mail. 83% say no. that's dropped a little bit. interesting to see how we've been going in past five minutes. not a single person many the past five minutes has voted yes. overwhelmingly no. we'll see how that moves. this is taking pulse in real time. let's look at gender and see males and female. interesting trend. overwhelming response from men and women say no. see what spiked in the last five minutes here with some males spiking up to yes. at this point again if you want to vote, make your voice heard. pulse.msnbc.com. taking a pulse of this question

10:49 am
we're thrilled. it's unprecedented the court of special appeals without oral arguments and in fact cancelling oral arguments issued this ruling. >> asia had given some testimony saying that she had witnessed this in the library. she was never formally called in to testify. investigators had spoke tonn to her correct? >> no. nobody had spoken to her not his attorney and not the investigator. that's part of the claim we have. after he was convicted i discovered asia mcclain, found her. she wrote an affidavit for me. she wrote letters after he was arrested saying i remember being with you in the library. the lawyers never followed up. >> the lawyer since passed away that he originally had.
10:50 am
did not follow up on the investigation to reach out to mcclain to get her as a potential alibi witness. how confident are you that once this testimony is added to the record that that could potentially affect the conviction? >> i'm more confident than i've ever been. i think we're as well positioned as we could possibly be in this case, beyond asia mcclain being heard by a court her testimony hopefully being accepted by the court. you might not know but me and team of other investigators and lawyers started a podcast a few weeks ago and we have proven essentially that the state's key witness was coached by baltimore city police and we actually showed how he was coached. there was a lot of things that happened that serial didn't cover and the courts are paying attention and baltimore legal community is paying attention. there is pressure on the state to do right by the wrong.
10:51 am
>> if so much attention has been paid to the investigation whether through the baltimore city police investigation through your own private one also through the journalistic one, who killed -- >> i don't think it's outside of the possibility it could have been a random act of violence. there was a similar crime that occurred in the previous six or seven months with oot young girl from the same high school found strangled and sexual assaulted and her body was left in the same park. there's a number of possibilities and beyond that i think would not be responsible for me to commit. >> lawyer and friend of adnon said, we'll look at how it moves forward into the permanent record. good luck with the new podcast. >> a lot more ahead we'll take you back to iowa, now that hillary clinton has broken her

10:56 am
code are completely untrue. but what "people" magazine is saying that cannes makes the oscars look like junior prom and it's full on and full blown in cannes, maybe there's a little bit of truth. maybe a small kitten heel. >> if they can produce images of women in flats getting in it debunks the whole story. until that happens, we're on the case. >> flip-flops and flats are in the car for the switcheroo. >> we'll have much more ahead including hillary clinton answering reporters questions for the first time in weeks and weighing in on her e-mail controversy. >> that is our bing question of the day, we're asking you will that controversy affect your vote? weigh in at pulse.msnbc.com. >> the fear of violence among motorcycle gangs in texas, we'll look back at the history of incidents between gangs and further fallout from the fall of

11:01 am
family and housekeeper killed, a second housekeeper sharing details about the day they died. the conductor suing amtrak over the deadly derailment. we'll tell you what they are seeking damages for. we do begin with breaking news, just a short time ago hillary clinton took questions for the first time in 28 days. kristen welker asked clinton about possible conflicts over her paid speeches and her controversial use of private e-mail. >> was there conflict of interest in your giving paid speeches into the run-up of your announcement you're running for president? >> the answer to the second is no. and answer to the first, i have said repeatedly i want the e-mails out. nobody has a bigger interest in getting them released than i do. i respect the state department. they have their process that they do for everybody, not just for me. but anything that they might do to expedite that process i
11:02 am
hartley support. >> she defended her work with the clinton administration saying she'll let voters decide if anything improper happened. >> i'm proud of the foundation and proud of the work it has done and is doing. it attracted donations from people organizations from around the world. and i think that just goes to show that people are very supportive of the life saving and life changing work it's done here, at home and elsewhere. and i'll let the american people make their own judgment. >> more developments today regarding clinton's e-mails from when she was secretary of state. a george ordered the state department to immediately release her e-mails as they are ready for release. not all at once, next year as they had planned. the state department had this to say about the order moments ago. >> there was a court order issued this morning which directed the department to provide certain information within a week. that's what you're referring to. this includes directing the department to impose a schedule
11:03 am
for rolling productions of secretary clinton's e-mails. of course we take our legal obligations seriously we'll comply with the order. >> alex seitz-wald joins us on the campaign trail with hillary clinton. walk us through the comments that she made today how she answered certain questions and especially about details regarding her e-mails. >> reporter: right thomas, it was the first time in almost a month that hillary clinton has spoken with reporters and obviously the big question was on these e-mails this is the 55,000 pages of e-mails that were on her private e-mail server that she turned over last year waiting for them to release them. state department said this week it two take them until january to process them, vet them and make sure there wasn't confidential information or other things to be made public of the clinton wants that sooner telling kristen welker that she has been pushing along for them to be released as soon as possible.
11:04 am
that definitely rings true. politically she wants to get this out of her way as soon as possible, not have it come next year right before the iowa caucuses or before she's trying to win votes. that was the big question today and state department saying they'll comply. we might get a look at the e-mails very soon. of course taking questions on the foundation and iraq and lots of questions left unanswered but something from clinton for a long time of not taking reporters questions. >> alex also explain how she was able to unbundle the huge amounts of money that she and bill clinton have made as we got their financials released the other day and that she still wants to shuffle the deck, making sure that every day americans can have the same god given opportunities that she and bill have. >> right, thomas she made $30 million, she and her husband made $30 million since january of last year. almost all of that from speaking engagements, paid an average of
11:05 am
$250,000 a pop. she was asked about that today and wants to be a champion of every day americans as she calls them. how can she do that making so much money? she says she and her husband are blessed but never forget where they came from. they'll keep that in mind to level the playing field. the deck is still stacked for those at the very top. she wants to make sure everyone has the same opportunities she and her husband does and her granddaughter charlotte has. >> alex seitz-wald, thanks so much. mark murray is nbc news' political editor and he's joining us now. i want to get your take on how she was able to handle the questions about iraq. it's been a trap for other people on the trail. this is how she's handling it today. take a listen. >> look i know that there have been a lot of questions about iraq posed to candidates over the last weeks.
11:06 am
i've made it very clear i made a mistake plain and simple and i have written about it in my book and talked about it in the past. what we now see is ai very different and dangerous situation. the united states is doing what it can but ultimately this has to be a struggle that the iraqi government and iraqi people are determined to win for themselves and we can provide support but they are going to have to do it. >> meanwhile, we've spent $60 billion as taxpayers in trying to rebuild iraq. how do you think that hillary clinton did in handling that question and being able to take other questions on pt fly after this time in iowa today? >> well thomas her answer on iraq was similar -- actually almost wortd for word from her book that she ended up writing last year and for first time saying i made a mistake and owning up to that. it wasn't a surprise by her answer. but as far as the entire press
11:07 am
it was furious, she had a ton of reporters, including alex who were there she answered four or five questions. but this is what happens when you have the presidential front-runner, you get so much more scrutiny and get a lot tougher questions. people wanting to see what you have to say. throughout the democratic primary season she's going to be the democratic front-runner and this is going to be a standard operating procedure. very tough quiz questions from the press. but again i think the bigger thing is this is what happens when you're perceived as the democratic front-runner. >> mark murray great to have you on. thank you. i want to check in with francis rivera the bing pulse question has to do with the e-mail controversy. >> it certainly mattered to reporters in the impromptu q and a she said they are with the state department now but wants to get them out. we launched the pulse question over an hour ago. will hillary clinton's e-mail controversy impact your vote?
11:08 am
let's get a check on this and notice how this has been creeping up as far as those who responded yes, very very slowly that's creeping up with a number of percentage points. 81% of you are saying no, it will not impact hillary clinton's controversies as far as you're vote goes. let's take a look how you're voting in the past minute, especially having that discussion with mark murray and alex seitz-wald. in the past majority of those voted overwhelmingly are saying no. let's take a look at this. it may be tough to decipher from the beginning. it seems like those of you at least when it comes to younger viewers, 18 to 24 seen in red. 25 to 34 in blue. and 35 to 54 right here a lot of them mostly voting yes. so hillary clinton's e-mail controversy will impact your vote. older voters as we've seen dipping down at this point towards no. so again, invite you to keep
11:09 am
those votes coming, pulse.msnbc.com of the we'll see if it impacts the way the voters vote. we'll following new developments in the deadly texas biker brawl. waco justice of the peace released a preliminary autopsy report to the nine people killed in sunday's brawl. we're learning more about what may have started all of this. police say it may have all started due to an uninvited gang showing up to a meeting between other gang members. >> i have additional information this morning that that may have been gone -- may go beyond a parking incident to somebody had their foot run over and started the disturbance in the parking lot. >> investigators are working to finish processing the crime scene. they still have to remove motorcycles and other vehicles from the twin peaks restaurant parking lot. 170 suspects are now in custody
11:10 am
on a $1 million bond each. nbc news correspondent charles hadlock joins me. what do we know about the prelimb autopsy reports and how this all got started? >> reporter: mcclendon county justice of the peace released the namsz they range from 27 to 65. there are seven white males and two hispanics although race is not expected to be a factor in this fight that broke out here at this restaurant parking lot some 48 hours plus ago. as you mentioned, there was an altercation in the parking lot over a parking space. there were 135 motorcycles crammed into this parking lot behind me. and almost the same time, there was an argument taking place in the bathroom that spilled out into the restaurant with knives brass knuckles and chains and guns. that's when the police got involved. engaging in the fight, they shot several of the gang members. it's unclear exactly who shot
11:11 am
whom and that is going to be key to this case. that's why it's going to take so long. we have the preliminary autopsy results but up in dallas they are going through a forensic autopsy to determine exactly where the bullet struck the body and where it exited and where they were at the crime scene where the police were where the other gang members were to try to piece together which shots killed which people. charles hadlock in waco texas thank you. now to breaking news from the nfl, just about an hour ago new england patriots owner bob kraft announced his team will not fight the penalties. >> i'm going to accept reluctantly what he has given to us and not continue this dialogue and rhetoric. and we won't appeal. >> the patriots were fined $1 million and docked two draft picks, first rounder in the 2016
11:12 am
draft and fourth rounder in 2017. i want to bring in dave zirin what do you make of this surprise announcement? is this a classy move by bob kraft? >> it's not a classy move because tom brady is still appealing his suspension. he's sawing tom brady you're on your own, bill belichick you're on your own. he's acknowledging the power that roger goodell has at this point and realizing a lot of other owners as we heard in the press lined up behind goodell. bob kraft is accepting the reality that at the balance of forces in the ownership level he was a man standing alone. >> when we see tom brady now file gs his motion for appeal and got it in just under the wire last week. how do you think that's going to advance? he's kind of -- he's on his own here. how do you think that's going to
11:13 am
advance under goodell? >> it's going to make it much more difficult for him to argue that this was all about air pressure and atmospherics and random happenings of how a ball gets inflated or deflated because the team is effectively saying they accept the ruling that there was -- i think what brady is hoping for at this point is the more formalistic outcome, any time a player appeals say a four-game suspension it gets knocked down to three games and everybody goes about their merry way. guess who the patriots are playing in the week four game. it's a big 4:30 p.m. game against the cow boys and i'll eat my hat on tv if tom brady is not starting for the patriots. >> you'll eat your hat on tv? >> hat fedora it would break my heart but i'll do it. >> we want to book you on this show and we'll even give you

peaks parking lot restaurant. 170 suspects are in custody on a $1 million bond each. and we're going to check in now with frances who has more information about the banditos gang and the modus operaendi. >> it is undoubtedly once of the worst incidents of biking gang violence in history. let's look at others throughout the year of the on december 6th of 1969 the rock felt vast in livermore, california, the rolling stones were playing and they hired tell's angels to release for 500 bucks of beer. they tried to get on stage and a tell's angel's member fatally stabbed a man. the biker was later acquitted. but a 2008 documentary says they

inflaters are defective. it is recalling these inflaters and these recalls nationwide. >> so joining me now from chicago phil lebeau how significant are these recalls? >> it's huge, they are doubling the number of vehicles being recalled in the united states because of defective air bags. prior to this there were 17 million vehicles that were under a recall order because of a defective air bag inflaters that needed to be replaced. but those recalls were largely done by auto manufacturers companies like honda that said we think it's a defective air bag inflater and bring it in. now they are saying we're recalling a total of 33.8 million vehicles nationwide. takes huge, huge recall. >> phil, thanks for joining me.

11:32 am
this time to talk to reporters came after meeting with supporters and addressed the press and covered controversies surrounding her e-mail and foundation and unflattering stories about clinton insider sidney blumenthal who was advising then secretary of state on libya, even as he was advising businesses seeking contracts there. and here is how secretary clinton addressed that story. >> he's been a friend of mine for a long time and sent me unsolicited e-mails which i passed on in some instances and i see that that's just part of the give and take. when you're in the public eye and in an official position you do have to work to make sure you're not caught in a bubble and only hear from a certain small group of people. i'm going to keep talking to my old friends whoever they are. >> joining me in washington is onthan onjonathan allen. chief political correspondent
11:33 am
for vox. after 28 days hillary clinton breaks her silence with reporters. i mean, obviously she doesn't really need us out there. she gets her message out regardless. what do you think of how she did? i mean she was pretty great on the fly answering these questions and didn't hedge on much of anything. she buckled to the pressure of the fact that she has hasn't answered questions in a.m. a month. >> she seemed fairly koim fortable, 28 days it is the day it would take for a biblical flood. i think she fielded the questions well and her answer on sid blumenthal is probably the right one. she has a tendency to stay in touch with all sorts of people, some more savory some better advisers and worse advisers but does have a tendency to let her friends and associates over time continue to have access to her. we don't see anything in those
11:34 am
e-mails that suggests she was really acting on them other than to forward them to somebody else and say figure this out. >> out of these stories whether it's about the e-mails and hearing names come up. what do you think is more worry some for hillary clinton on the campaign trail? >> i think the biggest problem for her is the e-mail server that was wiped clean. i think when you talk about a congressional investigation that could be going on into the throws of this campaign and members of congress being able to talk about that ad naus yum and push and push to find out what was there that's a problem that is easy for the american public to understand the destruction of documents. i think that's a problem for her probably more than anything else. it's one that's latent and one we might not feel the full effect of until later in the campaign. >> jonathan allen, chief political correspondent for vox. i want to touch in with frances rivera for an update on bing pulse question of the day and whether or not people really
11:35 am
care about the e-mails. >> we asked will her e-mail controversy impact your vote. let's check out the xoor board so far, creeping up has been the trend, 20% saying yes and 80% saying no, saying it will not impact your vote. let's look at how you're voting based on the past minute or so especially when you've taken into consideration the discussion we're having finally answering this question. this is what we've been seeing throughout the hour and a half on hair. majority you can see majority of viewers saying they will not be impacted. let's take a look at age here and see how we're looking with just younger people actually 25 to 34 seen in red. most of you saying yes, 35 to 54 years, kind of more of the neutral side as well. we invite you to keep answering your question more of those
11:36 am
results throughout the hour here thomas. >> thanks so much. now we want to turn our attention to this thickening plot and murder mystery that rocked the washington, d.c. area. sources telling wrc that save poulous and housekeeper we are held cappive overnight before they were murdered last week. investigators believe more than one person was involved in this crime. this is according to wrc. there are also questions over a series of messages in the hours before the victims perished in a house fire. wr wrc spoke to a second housekeeper that she was told not to come to work that day and she is asked not to be identified in the interview. >> i hope you can get this message. my wife sick, my son is sick and better off to stay overnight
11:37 am
but -- >> meanwhile police are still looking for a person of interest who could be the key to unlocking this mystery. antonio olivo joins me now with this story. your last report digs into ms. figueroa's family background. what more can you tell us? >> it's still as you mentioned a moving story there are a lot of unanswered questions related to the actual investigation. and with respect to the family in el salvador, they are waiting to see what happens with the body yet to be transported. they are waiting to find out when they could receive her and pay their respects sfwl this is in the neighborhood of vice president joe biden. what more have you been able to uncover about the family and whether or not they had created any enemies or is this something
11:38 am
that your sources are telling you could be completely random as a home invasion? >> we don't know yet. there were no signs of forced"bbt entry. so all signs point to somebody perhaps being let inside their home. the family itself very involved in the local community. local charities and mr. savopoulus's business was a very prominent business, done work at the ver size on center and other structures around the city. well known family. we don't know if they had enemies or exactly what happened. we're waiting to hear back from the police as they sort through the evidence and find out whether there was something more obvious at play. >> we know that the police are working from grainy video they have, the porsche was stolen and burned 15 miles from the home but a terrible tragedy all
11:39 am
together. antonio olivo with the "washington post," thank you. >> thank you for having me. >> there are at least 32 class action lawsuits filed alleging the so-called fight of the century between pacquiao and mayweather was a fraud because pacquiao didn't disclose a preexisting shoulder injuries. fans in bars may not have paid big bucks for the pay per view fight if they knew that the fighter, one of them anyway, wasn't in the top shape. joining me is robert bianchi. what do you say? we talked before about this fight. do you think the lawsuits have legs? >> absolutely not. pacquiao is knocking this one out without any question. they are ridiculous and predatory and frivolous. i say it doesn't get in front of a jury. >> talk about evidence prosecutors could use to prove their case and using pacquiao's own words after the fact, to
11:40 am
make it morrell vant? >> i think the biggest thing here, we need to look at the form he signed and everybody is reading a couple of words and asking whether he requires evaluation or examination, his answer was no. he didn't require evaluation or examination, didn't ask do you have an injury that requires treemtd or we need to know about? the only reason the form is put into place to protect the boxing commission should there be a injury to say we're not libel. the people watching it and buying a ticket have no right to an expectation of a certain performance. >> did he bring this on himself? did pacquiao bring all of this on by saying afterwards, i wasn't in top shape and had a shoulder injury and trying to beat his chest a little bit to the fact ep wasn't up to snuff to go into the ring with floyd mayweather? >> you're dealing with two different things rng the court of law and court of law they
