tv First Look MSNBC January 5, 2017 2:00am-3:01am PST
planning say advisers are working on a plan to restructure the cia, cutting back on -- we were talking about a hypothetical. do you think what he was trying to do? that was last night. as of today, that's exactly what he is doing. that was last night. first look is up next. republicans are plotting, and soon will be executing a full scale assault on the three pillars that support the american health care system, the affordable care act, medicare and medicaid. the republican plan to cut health care wouldn't make america great again. it would make america sick again. >> the battle over the fate of obamacare has gotten under way on capitol hill. republicans have begun the long promised repeal effort but president obama is firing up the opposition. plus president-elect donald trump has appeared side with
julian assange over the hacking allegations. and dylann roof addresses the jurors who will decide his fate, offering no apology and no remorse. hey, there, good morning, everybody. it's thursday, january 5th, i'm alex whit alongside lewis berdorf. yesterday, going through the budget process means senate democrats cannot stop them through the fill buster. afterwards, mitch mcconnell spoke to the press. >> we're going to move forward with the obamacare repeal
resolution first and we'll take the second step a little bit later. >> however, president-elect donald trump appear to caution his party about this, tweeting earlier, republicans must be careful in that the dems own the failed obamacare disaster with its poor coverage and massive premium increases, like the 116% hike in arizona. also, deductibles are so high that it is practically useless. don't let the exhumer clowns out of this web. massive increases in obamacare come this year. pence met with congress yesterday about the health care plan. he said that republicans would not just strip away the affordable care act. >> the first order of business is to repeal and replace obamacare. and that was our message today and it will be our message on capitol hill. >> the health care system has been ruined, dismantled under
obamacare. the answer here is not to ignore the problem. we will help americans crying out for relief from obamacare. >> why still no plan to replace it? >> we have a plan to replace it. we have plenty of ideas to replace it and you'll see as the weeks and months unfold what we're talking about replacing it. how we can get better choices with lower prices by not having a government take over health care which is causing all this problem in the first place. >> the anxiety is palpable. one of the most articulate republicans on capitol hill is speaker of the house and he did a news conference today why he was unable to explain why republicans have not put forward their replacement plan. he's a smart guy. he spent years thinking about this. he's smart when it comes when it comes to politics, policy, we have profound different point of view, but there's nobody that questions his intellect and even
he can't articulate exactly why they aren't putting forward a replacement plan. >> meanwhile, less than 400 hours left in office, president obama went to capitol hill yesterday for a meeting with democratic lawmakers where those inside say he told them in two weeks i will no longer be a politician, but i'll still be a citizen. i envoy you so much right now because i would love to be on the field. senator chris murphy shared more of his message. >> his message was first and foremost that we certainly lost some of the messaging on this but that there's still not -- there still isn't a majority of americans that want it repealed. only 25% of americans want it repealed. everybody else wants it to be perfected. >> it's important to note that unlike a repeal, a replacement plan will require 60 votes. the uneasy relationship between president-elect donald trump and intelligenccommunity continued yesterday address --
as a reportmerged that the administration will reorganize the dni and the cia. a 2010 classified report from the president's intelligence advisory board found the office was distracted, not as agile as it should be and prone to turf wars. by the way, dan coats, said to be at the top of the list for national intelligence. trump advisers are also working on a plan to restructure the central intelligence agency, cutting back on staffing at its virginia headquarters. reporting these led efforts are being led by michael flynn and mike pompeo. meanwhile, alarm was expressed at president-elect's agreement with julian assange.
officials tell us while there are a lot of republicans and trump supporters in the spy agencies, there are few if any julian assange fans. yesterday, vice president mike pence responded to a question about julian assange by defending the president's skepticism. >> look, i think the president-elect has expressed his very sincere and healthy american skepticism about intelligence conclusions. the president and i have been receiving since the election regular intelligence briefings. received a presidential daily brief with the president yesterday, and we'll be looking at the facts and the information, but i think given some of the intelligence failures of recent years, president-elect has made it clear to the american people that he's skeptical about conclusions from the bureaucracy and i think the american people hear him loud and clear.
>> this comes as buzz feed reporting that the fbi never asked the democratic national committee for access to its computer servers allegedly hacked. president-elect trump has been critical of julian assange in the past. >> you had nothing to do with leaking those documents? >> no, i think it's disgraceful. >> you should be disgraceful. and several are voicing his distan for his opinion of julian assange. >> what is your opinion of julian assange. >> i really have none other than i think the guy is a sycophan for russia. he leaks, he steals data, and compromises national security. >> he has a history of under mining american interests. i hope no american will be duped
by him. you shouldn't give him any credibility. >> this is very dangerous. julian assange is a bad person with probably american blood on his hands and definitely the information he's put out there has made our country far less safe. >> meanwhile, former gop vice-presidential nominee sarah palin who condemned wikileaks hacker julian assange has made an about-face. back in 2010, she had called him an anti american operative with blood on his hands for leaking classified documents and meanwhile congressman dana rohrabacher is planning a trip to russia to see how we can work with duma. the congressman was coy when asked whether his group would meet with putin. i really can't say that.
he said after a pause and half a smile. it's possible. senator john mccain reportedly said there's a lunatic fringe in every party. >> senate minority leader chuck schumer is taking a page out of the republican vote. exhumer -- exhumerd -- schumer. >> has said we are opposed to nominees plain and simple. we haven't talked about hearings or any of these other issues but we will oppose nominees out of the mainstream, period. if it's one, if it's two, if it's three. if they put someone in the mainstream, we'll give them a careful look and we hope they will. >> apparently there's yet a new standard now which is to not
confirm a supreme court nominee at all. i think that's something the american people simply will not tolerate and will be looking forward to receiving a supreme court nomination and moving forward on it. >> shumer's move echoes a speech where he called on the democratic majority to block any of george w. bush's nominations. and president obama bid farewell to the armed forces during a ceremony at a military base in arlington, virginia yesterday. the president received the department of defense medal for distinguished service. during the speech, the president reflected on the burden the military carries for the nation and his responsibilities as commander in chief. >> by stepping forward and volunteering, by raising your right hand and taking that oath, each of you made a solemn
pledge. you committed yourselves to a life of service and of sacrifice. and in turn made a promise to you. which to the best of my abilities i've tried to uphold every single day since. that i would only send you into harm's way when it was absolutely necessary, with a strategy and well-defined goals, with the equipment and the support that you needed to get the job done. a lot of americans don't see the sacrifices you make on our behalf, but as commander in chief, i do. i've seen it when i look in the eyes of young cadets knowing that my decisions could very well send them into harm's way. we are called to remember core principles. that we must never hesitate to act when necessary to defend our
nation but we must also never rush into war because sending you into harm's way should be a last and not first resort. it should be compelled by the needs of our security and not our politics. >> convicted charleston church shooter dylann roof made a brief if bizarre opening statement during the sentencing phase of his trial yesterday. he made the decision to prevent his lawyers from presenting a mental health evaluation. he said i'm not going to lie to you. there's nothing wrong with him psychologically. he previously stated he won't call witnesses or present any evidence during the sentencing phase. he faces the death penalty. meanwhile, previous passages
were released written from jail. one said i do not regret what i did. a new york city train derailed yesterday. officials say none of the injuries are life-threatening. the cause of the incident is under investigation. although officials say that the long island railroad train didn't stop and hit a bumper at the end of the track causing the derailment. a train crashed back in nearby hoboken, new jersey, killing one person in september. a water shortage in the capital damascus. residents say they don't have enough water to do the most basic task like bathe or wash clothes and dishes. the problem is due to rebel groups controlling the valley where most of the water comes from. each side has blamed the other
for sabotaging the water's infrastructure. a spokesman of the u.n. says right now it's impossible to find out who is at fault due to fighting. eric holder has been hired as outside counsel. kevin deleon, assembly speaker anthony rent done, they both stated with the upcoming change in administration, we expect there will be extraordinary challenges for california in the uncertain times ahead. holder served as proposal's books -- president obama's attorney general for six years. he's expected to help in the up coming battles. a scary crash caught on camera in michigan. and winter storms are
welcome back. restaurant owners in michigan have been left with quite a mess on their hands after an suv careened into the building and the whole thing was caught on camera. we've got to take a look at this one. the vehicle crashes into the restaurant just barely missing a booth full of customers. police say the driver had borrowed the suv and wasn't familiar with it. the driver hit the accelerator instead of the brakes. thankfully, no unwith was injured. >> how cool are all those people, they get up immediately, not thinking of themselves and going to see what they can do to help. good people and lucky people. >> very lucky. >> very lucky. will let's check out parts of
california because they are getting pummelled with heavy rain and snow this morning. it's good news for the drought stricken state. the sierra nevada region has seen several feet of snow. >> that looks like where i was, phil cairns. >> up to this point, it's been beneficial. we've gotten good rains and snow in the mountains, but storm two will be so much worse because the rivers can only handle so much. now we're thinking this weekend could get serious situation and some significant damage could occur. that's the yosemite valley. pieces of energy from that storm now streak all the way across
nevada, utah, through colorado. we had snow overnight in kansas city. snow in st. louis. light snow in the ohio valley. there are slippery roads in this section near i-70. winter weather advisory in nashville this morning. later tonight, oklahoma city gets a coating of snow. here's the snowfall over the next 48 hours. of course, the mountains are getting the most as you would expect. the areas of white is only about one inch, maybe two inches at most. that's a large section. this is happening now. later on tonight we're going to get some of that from areas north of washington, d.c., coastal new jersey, new york city, southern portions of new england. just a coating of snow. the timing for friday morning could make it difficult on the roads. it's bitterly cold across the northern plains. then the story for the weekend will be a possible snowstorm coming up in the southeast. it looks like some areas like atlanta, birmingham, charlotte,
raleigh, all could have snow, maybe enough to shovel. >> they are not used to that. >> that's why it's a big deal in the south. still ahead, russell westbrook has had an incredible season. this pass not part of it. louis explains what happened to the superstar next in sports. atd car? yeah! you got it. just say show me millions of used cars for sale at the aew carfax.com. i don't want one that's hada k just say, show me cars with no accidents reported pretty cool i like it that's the power of carfax® find the cars you want, avoid the ones you don't plus you get a free carfax® report with every listing start your used car search at carfax.com you're so cold, come in! what's wrong? it's dry... your scalp? mine gets dry in the winter too. try head and shoulders' dry scalp care it nourishes the scalp and... ...keeps you up to 100% fkeree head and shoulders' dry scalp care

grayson allen returned to the floor after sitting out after one game what duke called an indefinite suspension. he tripped an opposing player against elon last month. the third one he's committed in the past two years. he finished with 15 points in last night's 110-57 route. this is the final game before coach k takes a one-month leave for back surgery. a big east match-up between villanova and butler. the bulldogs, hand defending the national champs they first loss this season, it's butler 12th straight on its home court. now the nba and the milwaukee bucks couldn't be stopped against the knicks last night had in a contest that came down to the wire. car mellow anthony ranked up a

♪ ♪ welcome back, everyone. i'm alex witt alongside louis burrgdorf. snow and cold weather are lurching across the west, heading east. plunging temperatures with it. in nevada an avalanche closed a road and in some parts of oregon they have seen 26 inches of snow so far. in boise, 14 inches. there's hope all the precipitation can begin to help begin to put a dent in year's long drought in california. >> the coast guard is looking

tom costello reports. >> reporter: she's covered under obamacare but having voted for trump she wants to see it replaced. >> what's not working about obamacare for you? >> the red tape. it should be as simple as me paying the premium, me going to a doctor that i want to go to. >> she admits she didn't have insurance before obamacare and her premiums have stayed under $300 a month, but her deductible has gone from $1,700 to $4,500. s that's a lot of money. >> for me it is. >> meanwhile, 600 miles away in crestwood, kentucky, this family voted for clinton. obamacare covered the cost of having a baby. losing that coverage, they say, would be a big blow to their hopes for the family farm. >> like most small business owners, we're kind of bootstrapping this. we've been at it a few years. >> nationwide, the affordable care act or obamacare has brought the percentage of americans without health insurance down from 16% to nearly 11%.
premiums have jumped dramatically in some states but nationally they are up 20%, slower than the rate before obamacare took effect. >> if health insurers feel that everything is uncertain, will they drop out of the aca market places. >> debra admits she's conflicted. she wants obamacare repealed but she needs the coverage. >> i have no issue of paying my fair share but it's got to be a fair share that i can afford. >> in its simplest form that's the very dilemma facing the new republican congress. >> thanks to tom costello for that report. and during the debate on the senate floor over health care, senator bernie sanders tried to use the president-elect's own words against him. trotting out a trump tweet. >> may 7th, 2015, donald trump tweeted, quote, i was the first
and only potential gop candidate to state there will be no cuts to social security, medicare and medicaid, end of quote. if he was sincere, then i would hope that tomorrow or maybe today he could send out a tweet and tell his republican colleagues to stop wasting their time and all of our time. and for mr. trump to tell the american people that he will veto any proposal that cuts medicare, that cuts medicaid, and that cuts social security. >> donald trump will be sworn in as president of the united states two weeks from tomorrow and vice president-elect mike pence says the changes will start right away. >> it will literally begin on day one. before the end of the day, we do anticipate that the president-elect will be in the oval office taking action to
both repeal executive orders and also set into motion through executive action policies to implement, promises that were made on the campaign trail. >> the president-elect yesterday announced his pick for chair of the securities and exchange commission, wall street lawyer jay clayton who is a partner at sullivan and cromwell which "the new york times" describes as the go-to law firm for goalman sachs. hearings for attorney general nominee jeff sessions are scheduled to sta one day earlier on january 10. now, if rex tillerson is confirmed as secretary of state he wilwalk away from his job at exxonmobil with a $180 million retirement package. according to the associated press, tillerson promised the state department he will sell another 600,000 exon shares.
all of that is contingent on his confirmation. he spent yesterday on capitol hill meeting with senators of both parties, including mitch mcconnell, marco rubio, lindsey graham and john mccain. many hoe-proceed -- many high profile republicans are skeptical. yesterday, he was asked whether he can support tillerson's nomination. mccain told reporters, sure. there's also a realistic scenario that pigs fly. >> if rex tillerson, donald trump's nominee for secretary of state, if he does not agree with your assessment, if he does not what and other see with russia, will he get your vote? >> the russians are under mining democracy throughout the entire world. they did hack into our political system. they are doing it to other
political systems and they need to pay a price. sanctions are coming, president-elect trump. >> "the washington post" reports that behind closed doors tillerson has sought to deliver a tough message how he sees russia and vladimir putin. tillerson stopped short of naming specifics of how he would handle sanctions and his interpretation of russia's involvement in u.s. elections. we go to south carolina where dylann roof gave his opening statement during the sentencing phase of his trial yesterday. it's the first time he's spoken publicly about the june 2015 shooting at a church that left nine people. >> reporter: jurors had already seen these videos of dylann roof planning his massacre and unanimously found him guilty. he spoke to them in person for the first time. >> i'm not going to lie to you, he said. there's nothing wrong with me slol zsh psychologically.
he offered no apology for the killing of nine black churchgoers at the historic ame church. instead, prosecutors read portions of what he wrote in a journal. i'm not sorry, he wrote. the prosecution's first witness, the widow of the reverend pinkney. she huddled in a locked office after hearing the gunshots, her six-year-old daughter whispered, daddy's dead? no, no, baby. she knew her husband of 16 years was gone. after the emotional testimony, roof chose not to cross-examine her. mental health experts say it's exceedingly rare for defendants to represent themselves in death penalty cases. >> just because he's been found competent to stand trial doesn't mean he hasn't been found to have a serious mental illness. he does fit the profile of
somebody with scis zoe freen -- schizophrenia who doesn't understand he's ill. president-elect trump is continuing to offer praise for ford after the company announced it was abandoning plans for a plant in mexico. it will invest $700 million in a michigan plant, creating 700 new jobs. trump had urged ford to abandon the mexico project out on the campaign trail and yesterday he tweeted thank you to ford for scrapping a new plant in mexico and creating 700 new job in the u.s. this is just the beginning. much more to follow. ford's aouncement came hours after trump's public spat general motors. >> the last 24 hours has been filled with closings and lay-offs in some of the big he have names in retail.
we're join live from london by nancy. macy has said it will close more stores across the country due to lack luster holiday sales. >> the share prices of macy's taking a tumble as low as 11%. macy will go ahead with 68 store closures. blaming the tough christmas period and saying the results they have seen are reflecting tougher times for the retail industry as a whole. those tough times are being felt over at sears as well. an internal memo received by business insider says that sears is moving ahead with additional store closures as well. altogether you are looking at about 150 sites that will be closed. that includes 108 k-mart stores and 42 sears stores by april. now, that represents about 10% of sears' total base and
according to business insider, employees were just informed on wednesday of those closures. elsewhere, we're talking about digital publishing company medium that's also laying off workers. 50 employees at this company which may not sound like a lot, but it represents a third of its staff. it does provide a base for bloggers and publishing companies to post stories on line, said it's ad-driven revenue model is broken. they are looking to preposition this company as part of the transition, they are talking about closing offices in washington and new york because the home base is in san francisco. keep an eye on jobs because we're expecting the adp report showing a jump in private sector payrolls for the month. >> keep an eye on that. thanks so much and a couple more business headlines for you this morning. positive signs from the auto industry here. car sales reach another record in 2016. boosted by lower gas prices and improving economy and easy credit according to analysts.

even though trump has 18 million followers, he only follows 42 accounts. he doesn't even follow barack obama and he's literally about to follow barack obama. but this weekend, trump followed somebody new on twitter. this is true. emergency kittens. a twitter account devoted to adorable cats. the feed features cute kitty photos and memes like this one that says you win at life if you cat cuddles with you. >> well, that is true. anyway, welcome back everyone. near white-out conditions in mix's upper peninsula creating mes messy conditions. we're going right to bill karins to find out who is getting hard by this. >> if you watch enough tv in the

little bit of slick stuff out there for a lot of areas that don't get a lot of snow. we have winter weather advisories here covering southern ohio valley and tennessee valley. here's how it's going to play out. this is 2:00 p.m. on friday. this little blew is a little bit of snow, pink the ice. 7:00 p.m. on friday, the first round just a little bit, but there's a second round behind it. the second storm, and this is the one that's going to give the higher snowfall total and it really looks like the bull's eye is going to be upstate of south carolina and also a few spots in eastern north carolina. the best chance for getting that 6 to 12 inches of snow will be the eastern half of north carolina. by the time the storm is over with, areas like raleigh would have more snow this winter than new york city and boston. >> wow. really? that's a lot of snow. >> it sure is. just one day after announcing a proposal for free college tuition for new york students, governor andrew
