thank you for being here with us, and good night from new york. the war of words continues. president trump attacks the mayor of london after this weekend's terror attack. is the president's upcoming trip there in jeopardy? plus, hurting his own case. the president fires off several tweets calling for a travel ban, but legal experts say he could be damaging his chances in court. and it's day two in the bill cosby trial. jurors have already heard from one tearful witness who claims the actor drugged and assaulted her two decades ago. . good morning, it's tuesday, june 6th. i'm ayman mohyeldin alongside
2:01 am
louis burgdorf and yasmin. a war of words began sunday when a tweet by the president seemed to mischaracterize a remark khan made saying there was no reason to be alarmed following saturday's terror attack. khan used the phrase in the heightened police presence and the president tweeted, pathetic excuse by london mayor sadiq khan who had to think fast on his no reason to be alarmed statement. yesterday the white house defended the president's tweets. >> the president directly misrepresented what the mayor of london said. >> i don't think that's actually true. i think the media wants to spin it that way. i think the president -- >> he said there was no reason to be alarmed by an attack on the city, do you think that's what he was saying? >> look, i think the point is, is there is a reason to be alarmed. we have constant attacks going on. not just there but across the globe. we have to start putting national security and global security at an all-time high. president trump has been very
2:02 am
clear that's his priority and he's not backing away from that. >> sadiq khan is responding and suggesting president trump's trip to the state capital be canceled. >> to be honest, my focus since saturday working with the police and emergency services and government to deal with the horrific attack on saturday. so i haven't got time to respond to ininformed tweets from the president of the united states of america. >> i don't think we should be rolling out the red carpet to the president of the usa in the circumstances where his policies go against everything we stand for. i think one of the things, when you have a special relationship, its not different -- no different to when you have a close mate up. stand with them in times of adversity but you call them out when they're wrong. there are many things about which donald trump is wrong. >> foreign relations committee bob corker was also asked about the president's tweet targeting the mayor of london.
2:03 am
here's what he told reporters. >> we live in a world today where unfortunately a lot of communication is taking place with 140 characters. it's probably best to refrain from communicating with 140 characters on topics that are so important. >> president trump continues his push for a travel ban following the terror attack in london. on saturday night he tweeted, we need the travel ban as an extra level of safety. yesterday morning the president fired off a series of tweets calling the revised travel ban a watered down version of the original and criticizing the department of justice. last night he tweeted once again saying, that's right, we need a travel ban for certain dangerous countries not some politically correct term that won't help us protect our people. legal experts saying trump's tweets could complicate the administration's efforts to defend the travel ban. the husband of white house adviser kellyanne conway is suggesting the president's comments could significantly hurt his case. quote, these tweets may make

some people feel better but they certainly won't help the officer of solicitor general get five votes. sad. he says he supports the administration and, of course, his wife. police in the united kingdom continue to carry out raids in connection to this weekend's london terror attack. we're learning more about the suspects amid questions whether police did enough to stop them. they say khurum butt was born in pakistan and redouane is a libyan. the third has not been named. as the search continues, london police announced they were releasing the 12 people arrested. they did not say why they were being released, the individuals or what they were taken into custody for in the first place. meanwhile, hundreds gathered near the site of the attack to pay remembrance to those who dies. joining us from london, lucy

kafanov. what are we learning about more of them? >> reporter: you're right to point out the growing question of whether authorities could have done more to prevent this. not only was one of the attackers known to authorities here but he was, as you say, featured in a television documentary about radical islamist groups here in the uk. khurum butt, the 27-year-old pakistani british born citizen was known to police and domestic intelligence agencies, mi-5. he was part of a group, a fairly well known radical group on the fringes of british society, one that believes in a caliphate. he was featured in a film about british jihadis shown praying around a black islamist flag at a park here in 2015. he was also apparently reported on an anti-terrorism hot line in 2015. we don't know as much about the
2:06 am
other attacker, rachid redouane, the other man who's been named, other than as you pointed out, that he was 30 years old and claimed both libyan and moroccan heritage. a lot of tough questions. authorities say they have 20,000 radical individuals they are aware of, 500 active investigations. they simply can't police them all. the fact this is now the third attack in which at least one of the attackers were somehow known to authorities at some stage raises lots of tough questions just a few days ahead of the election campaign taking place here on thursday. >> as lucy is pointing out, they're able to identify these individuals but tracking them, monitoring them and doing something about it seems to be harder than what ordinary people think. turning to a controversy that continues here at home. james comey set to testify in congress thursday, an event expected to be covered live by most broadcasting cable news networ networks. the white house now says the president will not assert executive privilege over his
2:07 am
testimony and the head of the senate intel committee had this to say about what's in the director's e-mails. >> did you ask to see the comey memos? >> he knows what's in the memos. >> i think eventually -- i think washington stays locked up forever. >> meanwhile, senator burr confirms they have received some of the documents for which they issued a subpoena looking into michael flynn and his companies. deadline is close of business today. what remains to be seen is how the administration itself will react. the associated press was first to report that efforts to create a war room to handle all things russia has stalled. quote, the process has been bogged down by a lack of decision-making in the west wing over to you to proceed as well as reluctance from some of those the white house hoped to recruit about serving a president who keeps getting in his own way. the onus is expected to fall outside the white house and beltway to the president's

2:11 am
one person who came to support cosby is his youngest tv daughter who played rudy huxtable. >> i don't take these charges lightly. i don't condone sexual assault in any way, shape or form. at the end of the day our court system is set up and the judge said plenty of times in the beginning of this whole thing that you are innocent until you're proven guilty. and the job now is for the two sides to prove their cases. and i accept whatever verdict is handed down. >> the tv legend later tweeted this note to the actress along with a photo thanking her for her support. cosby has repeatedly denied all allegations. testimony resumes today. america's top diplomat in china has resigned in protest of the president's decision to withdraw the united states from the paris climate accord. in a town hall meeting with embassy employees yesterday a charge d'affaires officer at u.s. embassy in beijing, david

2:31 am
consensual. a report from "the new york times" shows drug overdoses are the leading cause of death for americans under 50. preliminary data from "the new york times" shows it rose 90%, likely exceeding 59,000. if the numbers hold up, the opioid epidemic claims more lives than car crashes, hiv and gun violence when those crises were at their worst. donald trump pushed for a travel ban, firing off a series of tweets yesterday which legal experts say could hurt his case. nbc news chief white house correspondent hallie jackson has those details. >> reporter: new questions about whether the president's own words could come back to haunt him as he attacks travel ban, now in the hands of the supreme court, describing the current version as watered down and politically correct. and, yes, the president's reiterating, it is a travel ban. >> i don't think the president
2:32 am
cares what you call it. >> reporter: his administration used to. >> its not a travel ban. remember, it's a travel pause. >> its not a travel ban. >> this is not a travel ban. this is a temporary pause. >> when we use words like travel ban, that misrepresents what it is. >> reporter: why does it matter what it's called? because the president's words can and probably will be used against him in a court of law. other judges in decisions to block the ban already pointed to the president's rhetoric on the campaign trail. even supporters like conservative lawyer george conway, husband of kellyanne conway, says these tweets on legal issues undercuts the president. >> many people would say it undermines their kriblgt before the justices as well. >> does the president support his own travel ban as it's currently written? >> absolutely. >> reporter: president trump's late es travel ban talk comes in response to the terror attack in london. part of a series of statements in which he slammed london's mayor. >> london will see increased
2:33 am
police support. no reason to be alarmed. >> reporter: the president appearing to take that phrase out of context tweeting at least seven dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and mayor of london says there is no reason to be alarmed. >> look, i think that the point is, is there is a reason to be alarmed. >> reporter: mayor khan unphased. >> i don't have time to respond to uninformed tweets from the president of the united states of america. >> reporter: advisers point out the president did called prime minister may to offer condolences and express support to the uk. >> our thanks to hallie jackson for that report. also in the president's twitter rant yesterday, at times lashing out at his own administration saying the justice department should have stayed with the original travel ban, not the watered down, politically correct version they submitted to the supreme court. the justice department should ask for expedited hearing of the

watered down travel ban and seek a much tougher version. jeff sessions and the "new york times" reports now the president is apparently discontent with jeff sessions, one of his earliest supporters. take a listen. >> we have a man here who really helped me. he was the one person i sought his counsel because he's been so spot on. he's so highly respected. has anybody ever heard of senator jeff sessions? he's like 20 years old. unbelievable guy. say hello. come here. >> thank you for the work you've put into the immigration issue. i'm really impressed with your plan. i know it will make a difference. and this crowd shows a lot of people agree with that. congratulations. >> then candidate trump on the campaign trail, "the times" reports, quote, in private the

"wall street journal" reported aids organizations -- organized an official twitter intervention explaining certain kind of comments made on twitter would paint him into a corner. on may 7th the journal reported one major change under consideration would see the president's social media posts vetted by a team of lawyers to see if they needed to be curtailed. so the tweets don't go from the
2:36 am
president's mind out to the universe. the importance of president's access to social media has divided his supporters. >> this obsession with covering everything on twitter and little -- >> that's his preferred method of communication with the american people. >> that's not true. >> i think social media for the president is extremely important. it gives him the ability to speak directly to the people without the bisz of the media filtering those communications. at this point he has over 100 plus billion contacts through social media on all those platforms. i think it's an important tool for him to be able to utilize. >> amid all this the president is trying to get back to his agenda with, quote, infrastructure week. the president announced his plan to overhaul the air traffic control system and using it as an opportunity to slam the obama administration. >> we're proposing reduced wait times, increased route efficiency and far fewer delays.
2:37 am
we will launch this air travel revolution by modernizing the outdated system of air traffic control. the previous administration spent over $7 billion trying to upgrade the system and totally failed. honestly, they didn't know what the hell thewere doing. it's time to join the future. at its core our new plan will dramatically improve america's air traffic control system by turning it over to a self-financing nonprofit organization. this new entity will not need taxpayer money. under this new plan, the federal aviation administration will focus firmly on what it does best -- safety. a separate nonprofit entity would be charged with ensuring route efficiency, timely service and a long awaited reduction in

delays. in a ceremony befitting a bill signing, the president went on to sign not a bill but a memo to congress outlining his proposal which has no binding effects. the white house laid out its legislative timeline last night and an infrastructure bill was not on the lis. instead the administration's goal is to pass the health care overhaul before congress adjourns for summer recess followed by tax reform. let's head back overseas to the uk where police in that country continue to carry out raids in connection to this weekend's london terror attack. we're learning more about the suspects amid questions. police have identified two of the three attackers. they say khurum butt was british citizen born in pakistan and redouane is a moroccan and libyan. butt was already well known to authorities. british media is reporting he is also shown in a documentary by the uk's channel 4 last year about islamic extreme iic extr

2:40 am
>> some strong words from the mayor. joining us from london, lucy kavanof. where are authorities at with naming more accomplices? >> reporter: well, they know the identity of the third attacker. they simply haven't released that to the public yet. we did see more raids this morning, but that is, as authorities basically search for other people who may have known the attack was coming or who may have potentially helped out. i want to draw your attention to the scene behind me. where i'm standing right now is a short walk away from both london bridge and borough market. obviously, the crime scenes where these attacks took place. this line of people waiting in the rain, both of those areas have a lot of offices there. there's been a lot of folks who were supposed to go into work who obviously could not go into work because of those attacks. so, they have been lining up here all morning in the pouring rain, as you can see it, trying

to show their identification in order to enter those areas. the authorities not allowing them to enter their offices without showing i.d. this is basically the new normal, unfortunately. life is returning to normal, to some degree. some bridges are being reopened but put up concrete barriers. this in a free and democratic society having to show identification to get into your place of work is a disturbing development. >> that city still very much on high alert. thank you. 25-year-old intelligence contractor has become the first person to be charged with leaking classified information under the trump administration. the justice department announced yesterday that reality leigh winner, an nsa contractor, had been charged with removing classified material from a government facility and mailing it to a news outlet. the official complaint against winner says she admitted to printing out a may 5th intelligence document describing new details about russian efforts to hack voting systems
