against him? >> and the plot thickens. we're following reports that the hacking of tom democratic officials was more widespread than first thought. >> a wild scene outside of trump tower yesterday after a man scaled more than 20 stories up the building saying he had a message for mr. trump. it's 5:00 a.m. on the east coast, 2:00 a.m. out west. this is "way too early." ♪ i'm on top of the world, hey ♪ i'm on top of the world, hey ♪ i've been waiting on this for a while ♪ ♪ holding it in for a while ♪ take you in if i can good morning, it's thursday august 11th. i'm louise berg dor f alongside betty win. >> a hack is wider than previously reported. potentially affecting the counts. siting officials with knowledge of the case.
we initially learned the dnc were impacted but now it seems the hacking extended to the democratic governor's association and others. the paper sited democrats involved in the fbi investigation. the personal accounteds of clinton campaign officials and party operatives are also said to have been targeted. u.s. national security officials say they're confident russian intelligence agencies hacked the dnc. the content of some e-mails forced top dnc staffers including chair debbie wasserman schultz to resign on the eve of her party's convention. e-mails from hillary clinton's state department staff are once again putting her family's foundation in the spotlight. here is nbc's kristen welker. >> reporter: state department e-mails raising fresh questions about the relationship between the clinton family foundation and secretary clinton's state department. one, dated 2009, a clinton foundation executive e-mailed
secretary clinton's top advisers huma abedin and cheryl mills requesting they set up a meeting between a billionaire donor and u.s. ambassador to lebanon. this is very important he said. critics have bounced on foreign donations whether that brought access to the state department. >> it's called play for play. >> reporter: last year bill clinton defending the foundation to cynthia mcfadden. >> we have never done anything knowingly inappropriate in terms of taking money to influence any kind of american government policy. >> reporter: the clinton campaign telling nbc news these new e-mails don't relate to the foundation's work and they say the donor never met with the ambassador. >> that was kristen welker reporting. hillary clinton is heading to michigan today where she'll deliver a speech laying out her economic agenda. she'll head to the detroit area where according to her complain she'll discuss good paying jobs and economy that works for everyone, not just those at the
top. this comes on the heels of the economic policy speech donald trump made on monday. at a campaign rally in florida last night, donald trump launked an attack against hillary clinton for having the father of the orlando nightclub shooter seated behind her at a campaign event earlier this week. >> wasn't it terrible when the father of the animal that killed the wonderful people in orlando was sitting with a big smile on his face right behind hillary clinton? and by the way, including a lot of the people here, how many of you people know me? a lot of you people know me, right? when you get those seats, you sort of know the campaign. so when she said well, we didn't know. he knew. they knew. but how would you -- how did you like that picture? >> but shortly after saying those words, trump drew his own scrutiny. disgraced mark foley was sitting
behind the republican nominee during the rally. foley was forced to resign his seat back in 2006 after he became embroiled in a scandal over suggested e-mails and internet messages to congressional pages. thomas roberts reached out to foley after the rally and asked him if he is a trump supporter and voting for him. foley replied, yes, he's been a friend of mine for 30 years and one of my biggest contributors. trump donated $8,500 to foley between 1997 and 2006. nbc news has reached out to ask whether the trump campaign knew foley was attending the rally. the campaign did not immediately respond. nbc news does know however that several of the seats in the rows behind trump did have reserve signs. >> also at his rally in florida last night, donald trump tackled the subject of foreign policy and while discussing the war in iraq, he made these claims about president obama. >> we unleashed fury all over
the middle east. and it was a terrible mistake. and then obama came in and normally you want to clean up. he made a bigger mess out of it. in many respects, you know, they honor president obama. isis is honoring president obama. he is the founder of isis. he is the founder of isis. okay? he is the founder. he founded isis. and i would say the co-founder would be crooked hillary clinton. co-founder. so you hear all of, oh, what would trump do with ukraine and what does he know about foreign policy and crimea? they didn't say that crimea was taken. a long time ago. and then they say, would you get
it back? and if you say no, they say you're weak. why was it let go? if you say yes, you start world war iii. this was started during the administration of barack hussein obama. >> last night trump railed against the media's coverage. >> what i said was absolutely everybody was there. they heard it. they thought it was fine. rudy giuliani was there. he defended it this morning and said it was absolutely fine. what we're talking about is political power. there's tremendous political power to save the second amendment, tremendous. and you look at the power they have in terms of votes. that's what i was referring to obviously that's what i was referring to. >> i would actually say that the media is almost as crooked as
crooked eed hillary clinton. i mean that. look at the way they covered that story yesterday. was that disgusting? was that disgusting? and by the way, we have our second amendment. we need our second amendment protected. >> now, one reporter on the ground said rally goers began chanting -- lock them up -- -- referring to the press. hillary clinton campaigning in iowa yesterday she made it clear she saw fault in trump's word describing them as part of a familiar pattern. >> words can have tremendous consequences. yesterday we witnessed the late nest a long line of casual comments from donald trump that crossed the line. his casual cruelty to a gold star family, his casual
suggestion that more countries should have nuclear weapons and now his casual inciting of violence. every single one of these incidents shows us that donald trump simply does not have the temperament to be president and commander in chief of the united states. >> millions were captivated by the spectacle that unfolded 20 stories up on trump tower in new york yesterday. i was one of the people on the streets staring up in astonishment. he was apprehend after scaling the all glass face of trump tower using suction cups. the entire ordeal lasted three hours with the man refusing to give himself up. police say when they saw the opportunity to grab him, they went for it. >> i was lowering the safety line to him to explain to him he should lock himself in.
god forbid something should happen. if you lock this in, at least if you get tired, you will have it anyou won't fall. he refused to take the line. his thing was he wanted to go talk to trump. >> amazing job by new york's finest there. rigatta was taken to the hospital for a psychological evaluation. as you heard the officer say, rigatta claimed he wanted to deliver a message to trump who lives in the penthouse. nbc news has not independently confirmed it's rigatta, it appears to be the same person. >> hello, mr. trump. please do excuse my manner of appearance. i don't know how many people will watch this. i'm an independent researcher seeking a private audience with you to discuss an important matter. i guarantee that it is in your interest to honor this request. believe me, my purpose is not significant i would not risk my
life pursuing it. the reason i climbed your tower was to get your attention. if i had sought this via conventional means i would be much less likely to have success because you're a busy man with many responsibilities. i'll get my contact information to your campaign so that if you are interested you can respond. >> in the video, he encouraged people to vote for trump in the election. trump posted to twitter thanking the nypd for protecting everyone and saving the climber. trump released the statement saying in part, this man performed a ridiculous and dangerous part caused unnecessary deployment of new york's finest to protect the safety and the safety of everyone in the building. he caused the shutdown of traffic on fifth avenue. i'm 100% certain the nypd had better things to do. disorderly conduct and criminal trespass are likely the charges,
though so far none have been filed. >> thank you. authorities in canada say they foiled an alleged suicide bomb plot on a major canadian city. details are still coming in, but so far the government says it received credible information of a potential terrorist threat in southern ontario. according to the cbc, the suspect detonated one device and was planning to detonate another when police shot him and killed him. that according to information reportedly given to the suspect's family by police. authorities believe he was acting alone. the man in his early 20s was arrested last year for alleged ties to terrorist activity. he was under a court order not to associate with any extremist association. at least two dozen people are injured including several firefighters after a massive fire rocked an apartment building in maryland overnight. more than 160 firefighters were on the scene battling the three-alarm fire in silverspring. they made numerous rescues in heavy fire conditions.
