2:02 am
stories about colin powell's e-mails, currently unconfirmed by nbc, including exchanges with condoleezza rice. in december 2015, powell call inquiries into the terror attacks in benghazi, quote, a stupid witch hunt, saying christopher stevens bore much of the responsibility. benghazi is a stupid witch hunt. basic fault falls on a courageous ambassador who thought libyans now love me and i'm okay in this place, powell wrote, but pat kennedy, the intel community, diplomatic community, and, yes, hrc. completely agree, rice responded. in another published by buzz feed, rice apparently criticized former secretary of defense donald rumsfeld for bungling the occupation in iraq.

2:05 am
secret e-mail server pleaded the fifth shows once again why she can't be trusted in the white house. hillary clinton is set to return to the campaign trail tomorrow. she'll have events in north carolina and the nation's capital. her campaign says she spent the day reading briefings, making calls, and watching the president's speech, but her wide network of surrogates maintained her presence in the field. yesterday her husband picked up her events in california. chelsea was on the trail in winston, salem, and tim kaine in michigan. while the campaign struggled to stay on the same page about the bout of pneumonia, it was her running mate that revealed he was one of the last to know. >> when were you notified about this diagnosis? >> we talked sunday and i reached out to her as soon as the incident happened. >> you weren't notified friday? >> i talked to her sunday. >> don't you think that is delayed given the seriousness of the issue? >> i didn't think of it that way, i ran my first city council
2:06 am
race in 1994 and i had pneumonia in the middle of my city council race and powered through it. she did the commander in chief forum, had a busy week, had a round table discussion with national security experts. she does what a lot of people do, like moms, women do, power through things like this. >> we are expecting to get more information this weekend, donald trump's, as well. trump is set to reveal more during a taping of dr. oz today, but according to the tv host, how significant it will be will up to trump. >> what if there are embarrassing things? >> i bet he won't release them. it's his decision. look, the metaphor for me, this is a doctor's office, the studio. i'm not going to ask questions he doesn't want to have answered and i also don't want to talk about anything else. we're not talking about secretary clinton, for sure. >> so when i see what you do on thursday, will i feel i know what donald trump's health is by the end of your show? >> you should, that's the goal. >> meanwhile, democrats are
2:07 am
trying to shift the focus from clinton's pneumonia diagnosis to trump's weight. >> here's trump, he's 70, okay, he's the heaviest president we've had, candidate, since william taft. there's legit gnat issimate iss. >> take a look at this character that's running for president. he complains about her health. what's he do? he's 70 years old, he's not slim and trim. he brags about eating fast food every day. look at his health a little bit. >> donald trump rolled out a new policy proposal yesterday. in his call for six weeks for mandatory paid maternity leave and expanded tax credits towards childcare. previewing the event's importance at a campaign rally outside des moines, iowa. >> i'm going to roll out a plan to help our mothers and our families get affordable, quality childcare for their children. and my daughter ivanka is going to be involved.
2:08 am
she's the one that's been pushing for it, so, daddy, daddy, we have to do this. and it's true. she's very smart, and she's right. >> then last night in pennsylvania, trump's daughter joined him on stage for a rare joint appearance, introducing the candidate, pledging her continued involvement and framing the issue. >> the policy my father is about to outline is one that i'm proud to have helped conceptualize and ensuring its enactment will be one of my top priorities when he's elected come november. this is not a woman's issue. it's a family issue. it's an american issue. it's an issue that's often been discussed, but is yet to be solved. >> for many families in our country, childcare is now the single largest expense, even more so than housing. yet very little meaningful policy work has been done in this area, and my opponent has
2:09 am
no childcare plan. she never will, and if it ever evolves into a plan, it will never get done anyway. >> but clinton does have a childcare plan. 12 weeks of family leave for both mothers and fathers paid at least two-thirds of their salaries. the plan has been in place since before she announced her candidacy in the spring of 2015, which her campaign pointed out last night, posting the website link and tweeting, "it's literally right here." >> mike pence met with house republicans on capitol hill yesterday in an effort to promote party unity. according to "the new york times," pence faced resistance from some house republicans and behind closed doors some of them told about their concerns about trump's performance with women. his young daughter had come to him and said, daddy, donald trump hates women. and after a morning meeting, congressman peter king commented to reporters about the fact many members are supporting a trump
2:10 am
ticket largely because of pence. >> the number of people get up and said when they were asked at home why are you supporting trump, because he picked mike pence to be vice president. >> the meetings on capitol hill came a day after pence refused to call white supremacist david duke deplorable. during an interview he was pressed again during a news conference yesterday. >> for all the world, i have no idea why this man keeps coming up. i mean, donald trump and i have denounced david duke repeatedly. i was -- i was asked a question about that, and i repeated that again. and the simple fact is, that i'm not in the name calling business. but i'm also not going to validate the language that hillary clinton used to describe the american people. hillary clinton wasn't talking about that bad man. >> the army has agreed to provide former army analyst chelsea manning with gender reassignment surgery.
2:11 am
her lawyers have revealed the move ends a prison hunger strike. the ban ended on transgender service members. manning was sentenced in 2013 to 35 years in prison for espionage after admitting she spent classified documents to wikileaks. she can still remain in solitary confinement. manning says she is unendingly relieved that the military is finally doing the right thing. i applaud them for that. this is all that i wanted, for them to let me be. adding, but it is hard not to wonder why it has taken so long. well, for more news of the day, let's bring in louis bergdorf. what are you following? >> thanks, betty. shimon perez is in the hospital after a major stroke and heavy bleeding to the brain. doctors say the 93 year old perez is stable but in critical

2:31 am
alongside betty nguyen and louis burgdorf is just over there. with hillary clinton off the trail with pneumonia, president obama stepped in to give her campaign an assist. the president stumped for his would-be democratic successor in philadelphia yesterday and it comes after a rough last few days for the campaign with questions about her health, her declaring half of donald trump's supporters deplorable, and at a time when national polls show her losing some ground against her rival. yesterday with his 58% approval rating, the president tried to throw some energy back into the campaign, praising clinton and mocking trump. >> i keep on reading this analysis that, you know, trump's got support from working folks. really? like, this is the guy you want to be championing working people? this guy, who spent 70 years on this earth showing no concern for working people. this guy's suddenly going to be your champion?
2:32 am
you want to debate who's more fit to be our president? one candidate who's traveled to more countries than any secretary of state ever has, has more qualifications than pretty much anyone who's ever run for this job, and the other who isn't fit in any way, shape, or form to represent this country abroad and be its commander in chief. this is not reality tv. who just last week went on russian state television to talk down our military and to curry favor with vladimir putin. he loves this guy. and when they asked him, why do you support this guy? he's a strong guy. look, he's got an 82% poll rating. well, yeah, so does saddam
2:33 am
hussein had a 90% poll rating. i mean, if you control the media and you've taken away everybody's civil liberties, and you jail dissidents, that's what happens. you know what the pollster calls you up, do you support the guy who if you don't support him he might throw you in jail, you say, yes, i love that guy. i mean, you know, i have to do business with putin, i have to do business with russia. that's part of foreign policy, but i don't go around saying that's my role model. can you imagine ronald reagan idolizing somebody like that? >> of course, donald trump hit back, posting on twitter, "russia took crimea during the so-called obama years. who wouldn't know this and why does obama get a free pass? and why isn't president obama working instead of campaigning for hillary clinton?" the attorney general of new york is looking into donald trump's nonprofit foundations after questions about possible
2:34 am
improprieties. the attorney general announced his office opened an inquiry into the donald j. trump foundation. >> my interest in this issue really is in my capacity as regulator of nonprofits in new york state and we have been concerned the trump foundation may have engaged in impropriety from that point of view and have inquired with it and had correspondence with them. i didn't make a big deal about it, but we have been looking into the trump foundation and make sure it's compliant with the laws that govern charities in new york. >> they've asked about a $25,000 donation the trump foundation made in 2013 to and justice for all. nonprofits are barred from making politically related contributions. now, in response, the trump campaign released a statement calling schneiderman, quote, a partisan hack that's turned a blind eye to the clinton foundation for years and has endorsed hillary clinton for president. this is nothing more than a left
2:35 am
wing hit job. meanwhile, democrats on the house judiciary committee have asked the justice department to investigate the circumstances surrounding the donation made to the political group connected to bondy. in the letter they allege the donation may have influenced the decision whether to open a fraud investigation into trump university. the former state deptment staffer tasked with setting up hillary clinton's private e-mail server is refusing to answer questions on the matter. he was ordered to testify before the house oversight committee yesterday, but did not attend. in a letter to the committee, his lawyers say he will continue to invoke his constitutional right not to testify. the hearing did feature a frosty exchange between jason chaffetz and ranking member elijah cummings sitting next to each other. >> today is our third, third, emergency hearing about secretary clinton's e-mails in
2:36 am
four business days. third. in four days. emergency. >> if anybody's under any illusion i'm going to let go of this and just let it sail off into the sunset, they are very ill advised. >> the other witnesses at that hearing, engineers at a firm that manage clinton's server invoked their fifth amendment right not to speak. the trump campaign released a statement on that move, "the fact that individuals who maintained hillary clinton's secret e-mail server pleaded the fifth show once again why she can't be trusted in the white house." >> we've talked a lot about states not usually in play being in play. consider the case of deep blue maine. hillary clinton leads by a mere three points there, that's inside the margin of error, libertarian gary johnson is polling at 9%. meanwhile, johnson has cleared a major hurdle, his campaign announcing yesterday johnson's name will appear on the ballot in all 50 states, as well as the district of columbia, releasing
2:37 am
a statement that says in part, "we now know for certain on election day every voter in america will have that alternative opinion." johnson's victory marks the first time since 1996 a third party presidential candidate appeared on every state ballot. libertarian harry brown and ross perot were the last ones to accomplish that. a man seen in an altercation in the grand stands at a trump rally has turned himself into police. this video was shot in asheville, north carolina, on monday. police obtained warrants for the man they say assaulted another person and thomas velanti jr. later turned himself in. a handful of others were arrested separately, as well. campaign reports say a message was played for people in attendance at trump's rally in clive, iowa, asking them not to hurt protesters. the message used to be commonplace, but hadn't been played during recent stops. the hacker who broke into the democratic national committee systems this summer has released another batch of internal documents, including
2:38 am
what appears to be vice presidential nominee tim kaine's personal cell phone number. the hacker made the data dump at a cyber security conference in london yesterday. in addition toaine's cell number, the cache also included the contact information for several current and former top white house initials. interim dnc chair donna brazile is again blaming russia, releasing a statement that says in part, "the dnc is the victim of a crime and illegal cyber attack by russian state sponsored agents who seek to harm the democratic party and progressive groups in an effort to influence the presidential election. there's one person that stands to benefit from the criminal attacks and that's donald trump." >> let's turn now to business and the big news when it comes to wages. the u.s. census bureau reports the biggest rise in incomes in 50 years. also a big decline in the percentage of americans living below the poverty line. nancy hungerford joins us live from london. what can you tell us about these
2:39 am
numbers and what you're following this morning? >> good morning, louis. that is correct, despite all the doom and gloom you hear on the campaign trail about the economy and the middle class, this data from the u.s. census bureau, as you point out, is showing a median household income rose 5% from the previous year, that's the best increase on record since these records began in 1967, so that's good news. also when you talk about the americans living in poverty, that rate has dropped to 8%. so again, this should be perceived as good news, but when you look at the overall employment picture in the u.s., as well, some are still saying there's more room to go. meanwhile, i want to bring your attention to the ongoing dispute over wells fargo and the scandal there. some fresh questions raised over the unit leader there who is leading the company with a near $125 million golden parachute, so to speak. this comes as the ceo of wells fargo, john stumpf told c nbc he's sorry but has no plans to
2:40 am
resign. the stock took a hit yesterday and falling more than 3% it fell below jpmorgan to become the number two largest bank by market cap in the united states. and finally, a big deal to keep your eye on today. we are expecting a major acquisition that is from german giant bayer for monsanto to create the largest agricultural services provider. we're talking about an all-cash deal. sources have said both parties have agreed in principle to the deal but questions will remain over whether or not regulators give it the green light. back to you for now. >> live from london, thanks so much. one more business headline to tell you about this morning, oprah winfrey is taking a major loss after announcing their ceo would resign at the end of the month, the stock dropped nearly 7% yesterday with winfrey taking a loss of around $117 million. the media mogul bought a 10% stake in the company this past october. we saw shares nearly double on
2:41 am
enthusiasm of her involvement. the company has struggled to keepp with the excitement. shares are down 66% overall since they peaked when winfrey came onboard. alex and betty, back to you. >> that's a huge drop. >> that's so not oprah-like. >> everything she touches turns to gold. >> thanks so much, louis, for that. still ahead, whistle-blower or trader. the debate over nsa leaker edward snowden is about to heat up again. not only because of the new biopick starting joseph gordon levet. and there is an encouraging sign it may actually hold. help on the way, we'll get a live report.

aid trucks are preparing to deliver supplies, including to the rebel-held eastern aleppo area where an estimated 250,000 civilians have been trapped since july due to a blockade. the nationwide cease-fire between government and rebel forces continues to hold after taking effect monday night. since then, both sides have accused the other of violating the agreement. let's talk more about that. joining us from london, matt bradley. matt, what is the latest on this cease-fire? we understand it's holding for the moment. >> good morning, betty, that's right, it's all quiet on all fronts in syria this morning. the country woke up to the rare sound of, well, normal life nearly 42 hours into a nationwide cease-fire. the syrian observatory for human rights reported no civilian causalities since the guns fell mostly silent monday night and a u.n. special envoy for syria said, quote, calm had prevailed. it's something of a surprise considering the pessimism that surrounded this deal when

russian and american diplomats signed it late last week. the two sides will re-evaluate the progress and if everything goes as planned, russia and america are going to extend the cease-fire for another 48 hours, but, betty, there's one element that's still missing, the syrian government has been blocking aid convoys from reaching rebel-held eastern aleppo, a city that still holds, as you mentioned, some 200,000 civilians. the u.n. envoy said that convoys carrying much needed supplies have reached the border, have reached into syria, but only two of them. there's still about 20 convoys that are still idling on the other side, on the turkish side of the border, so there's still some homework to be done. still, optimism among diplomats appears to have spiked, so syrian civilians are waiting to see whether these positive signs will prevail into next week. >> the aid is desperately needed. matt bradley, thank you.
