declaring, "i am not going away" that is our broadcast. thank you for being with us and good night from nbc news headquarters in new york. news headquarte rs in new york . this morning democrats turn up the pressure on the attorney general, the house judiciary committee chairman is demanding that william barr release the summary of the special counsel probe written by robert mueller's investigators. >> joe biden is hitting back after the president mocked him with a doctored video. this as the former vp was spotted in scranton, pennsylvania with a film crew fueling rumors about a 2020 bid. police call it a devastating hoax. a 20-year-old told authorities he was the boy who disappeared eight years ago. dna tests showed that wasn't
true. good morning, everyone, it is friday, april 5th. i'm ayman mohyeldin alongside yasmin vossoughian. congressional democrats have formally responded to the reports that special counsel robert mueller's investigators were frustrated that attorney general william barr's public letter on the report excluded damaging information about president trump. an official telling "the washington post" that summaries were prepared for different sections of the report with a view that they could be made public and two people telling "post" that barr not releasing them have disappointed team members. in a letter, chairman jerrold nadler demanded immediate release of the mueller team summaries. quote you have already provided an interpretation of the special counsel's conclusions in a fashion that appears to minimize the implications of the report. releasing the summaries without delay would begin to allow the
american people to judge the facts for themselves. >> yesterday the justice department did not deny the existence of the special counsel summaries only that robert mueller labelled them as off limits. a doj spokeswoman stating quote every page of the confidential report provided to attorney general barr on march 22nd was marked macon taken material protected under federal rule 6e. that's a law that protects confidential grand jury information and could not be publicly released. in light of the report, chairman nadler's letter indicated all communications between the special counsel office regarding the report. they disputed the word "summary" saying attorney general barr released to release the bottom line findings and concluings without an attempt to summarize the report with an understanding that the report would be released after the department made its redactions. chairman nadler newly authorized to subpoena the full report said
barr's primary isn't it to protect trump. >> i said that barr is an agent of the president. he was put there for that purpose. sessions was fired because he wouldn't protect the president personally. comey was fired because he wouldn't protect the president personally. the president said who is going to protect me personally not look out for tint of the country and they found barr. >> what's the timeline on the issuance of the subpoena? >> very short order. beyond that i won't describe it. >> president trump is heading to america's southern border over threats of illegal immigration into the united states. it's been quite a week on that front beginning last friday. >> if they don't top them we're closing the border. we'll close it. and keep. it closed for a long time. i'm not playing games. >> there's a likelihood i'll close the border next week. >> it certainly isn't a bluff. you can take the president seriously. >> if we don't make a deal with
congress, the border is going to be closed. 100%. sure, it's going to have a negative impact on the economy. frankly something better less drastic tariff the cars coming in. i'll do it. i don't play games. we're going to give them a one year warning and if the drugs don't stop or largely stop, we're going to put tariffs on mexico and products in particular cars. the whole ball game is cars. it's the big ball game. with many countries its cars. and if that doesn't stop the drugs, we close the border. we will put tariffs on, if they don't apprehend, and ultimately we're going to give it a period of time, but if in a year from now, drugs continue to pour in, we're going to put tariffs on. >> so it's a year? >> no we'll start with the
tariffs and see what happens. >> so a major new study illustrates the devastating effects trump's tariffs are having on the u.s. economy as american consumers bear the brunt of price increases not actually the foreign companies he's trying to target as president trump claims. >> former vice president joe biden will speak later this morning at a union conference in washington, d.c. his first public appearance since multiple women made complaints about their discomfort about the way he touched them at events over the years. yesterday president trump tweeted a video mocking biden's statement where he pledged to be mindful of personal space. taking the video and super imposing a photo of biden holding the shoulders of stephanie carter. biden responded to trump i see you're on the job and presidential as always. in scranton, pennsylvania, spotted biden yesterday outside of the former vice president's childhood home with a film crew.
sources say he was there to film a video but no word yet on official campaign launch. joining us now from welsh, politico daniel littman co-author of the politico playbook. daniel, good to talk to you once again. >> we talk to him all the time. >> get your take on this video and the way president trump went after biden. >> two adults on twitter. >> two grown men. >> i don't think that this is probably the smartest move for the president because, you know, he's been accused of stuff that's way worse than what biden allegedly did. so, you know, for women watching this video, that trump doctored the president of the united states is doctoring a video and putting on twitter on his official account it just doesn't seem like it strikes the right tone and that trump should want to talk about other things. what's interesting is that he doesn't actually condemn the
behavior of any of these me too men, you know, al franken, joe biden, it's more about oh, they look weak, or they are forced to apologize. not hey they should have acted better. >> it's more mocking their response to all of it. >> good point. let me get your thoughts about how all of this, the revelations, some of these claims made by the women over the past several days, speaking out against the former vice president are going to impact his 2020 campaign roll out? >> well, obviously, it's disrupted it horribly for the former vice president. but i think that it indicates that he should have gotten in earlier so he had a proper campaign apparatus instead of using one spokesman who is left to bear the brunt of tons of media inquiries and joe biden has not been on tv. i'm sure you would welcome him on your show. >> gladly.
>> he needs to respond -- >> any time. >> he needs to get out there to set his own narrative, and the fact that he's letting other candidates kind of pile on and say well i believe the women, that has made it much harder for him to really respond. >> you bring up a campaign apparatus or lack thereof and i wonder maybe that's one of the reasons why he hasn't gotten into the race quite yet. when you're someone like a former vice president joe biden you can't necessarily roll out your campaign without everything in place. it's not like beto o'rourke who is new to the scene. >> no. you need the proper campaign manager and communications folks and logistics. but i think he still wants to get in. he views himself as one of the unique candidates who can actually fight back against trump pretty well. but, you know, he's always had these type much controversies when he has run.
remember a couple of times ago he plagiarized speeches and said not everything has to be attributed. he clearly is trying to find his way about in this very crowded el preview of the twitter wars to come in the 2020 campaign. >> this is just the my friend. >> we'll talk to you again in just a little bit. there's been a stunning result in the case of a man who claimed to be timothy pitzen who went missing as a child eight years ago after his mother was found dead in an illinois hotel room. dna tests show that's true and investigators are calling it a painful hoax. >> reporter: 24 hours after getting word that timothy pitzen who has been missing for eight years might have been found heartbreaking news for his family. >> devastating. it's like reliving that day all
over again. >> reporter: the fbi says a dna test proved a person who showed up in a kentucky neighborhood is not timothy. he's 23-year-old brian michael renny and has a criminal record including serving time for burglarier and vandalism in ohio. the family disappointed but not angry. they have dealt with false sightings before. >> i would reserve all judgment and pray for the young man involved. >> reporter: timothy disappeared in 2011 from aurora, illinois. his mom took him out of school early. her body was found three days later in an apparent suicide. >> we have this child who said he ran way. >> reporter: the person told him he escaped from two men who had been holding him for two years. back in timothy's hometown his bike sits at a neighbor's house given by his dad to a family of a boy he played with.
>> this was the timothy's house, his playground. >> reporter: jacqueline lives in the house that timothy once called home. >> i had hoped one day he'll pass by and say that was my playground. >> reporter: now the question why would anyone impersonate a missing child. >> we know you're out there somewhere, tim. we will never stop looking for you. praying for you. and loving you. >> completely heartbreaking. so our thanks to ron mott. chicago's law department is moving forward to sue jussie smollett after the actor refused to reimburse the city for $130,000 that it spent investigating a staged hate crime. chicago sent jussie smollett and his attorneys a letter on march 28th demanding he pay the city for overtime work by detectives and officers that looked into his claims. they set april 4th as the deadline for the payment

waivers to 6% of the applicants during the ban. the trump administration has argued that the waivers are proof that the policy was not aimless but needed to protect national security. in its june 2018 ruling upholding one of the administration's revised versions of the ban the supreme court cited the waiver program to support the government's stance that it served a legitimate national security interest. in a entertainment to reuters democratic senator chris van hollen says this data paints a clear and deeply disturbing picture of the trump travel ban. the administration repeatedly swore to the supreme court and the american people that this was not a de facto muslim ban and that there was a clear waiver process to ensure fairness. that count be further from reality. let's bring in nbc meteorologist bill karins for the weather. >> we have an ugly friday or a beautiful saturday or vice versa? >> i would rather have a beautiful saturday. >> right.

welcome back, everybody. i'm yasmin vossoughian alongside ayman mohyeldin. it is the bottom of the hour. let's start with the morning's top stories. president trump's former mixer michael cohen appears to be making a last ditch effort to delay his prison sentence. in a letter to congressional democrats, lawyers for cohen insist he can still when their oversight ininquire rice. according to his legal team cohen had discovered new files that could be relevant to their investigations but would need to remain out of prison in order to sift through the millions of documents. cohen's lawyers say he was recently given access to the files that were seized by federal investigators during a search in april of 2018. the files reportedly include voice mail messages and recordings as well as 14 million
other documents. cohen's lawyers are asking democrats to provide documentation of his cooperation which could help convince federal prosecutors that he's still necessary for their investigations and prompt a postponement or even reduce his prison time. cohen is scheduled to begin serving a three year prison sentence on may 6th. president trump says that democrats demanding to see his tax returns will have to speak to his lawyers. the chair mapp of the house ways and means committee sent a letter requesting six years of trump's business and personal tax returns. here's how the president responded to questions about that yesterday. watch. >> speak to my lawyers. speak to the attorney general. >> they will speak to my lawyers and speak to the attorney general. so top republicans are also weighing in on democrats who move to see the president's tax returns.
house minority whip say americans are shocked that congress can review tax returns whether it's a blue collar worker or the president of the united states. they deannounced the move as an abuse. tremendous wrote a letter to mnuchkin weaponizing the tax code sets a dangerous precedent. as you know bylaw all americans have a fundamental right to the privacy of the personal information found in their tax returns. really raise that question again about what is on those tax returns. >> what is on those tax returns. joining us now from washington daniel littman. what is in those tax returns? do you have the answer to this? my friend if you do have the answer to this -- >> break the story. >> i do not have inside access to the irs. i do think it's interesting that the "new york times" revealed that trump was obsessed with
getting the general counsel of the irs confirmed, that was a higher priority for him than even the attorney general bill barr's confirmation because he wanted a top lawyer at the irs to make sure that they are batting down the hatches to guard against this request. but, you know, if trump has nothing to worry about then he should let the returns speak for themselves. and this seems to be a matter of when not if democrats get access to this because in the statutory authority they have a right to see any filer's return and past presidents, of course, have released their taxes. >> the context, though, that republicans are trying to make saying that this is an invasion of a private american citizen's, his privacy of an american citizen and that they are worried about the precedent this sets for ordinary americans whether it's a blue collar worker or president.
does that hold any truth to it? >> well, obviously, they can look at anyone's tax returns but i don't think congress is going to get mocked for looking into, you know, joe schmo's tax return. the president is different from someone who is an average american. he's the most powerful person in the world. and i think democrats view this as an issue that they ran on in 2018 and they won saying that we need transparency. this is a guy that's not just an average president who rose up through the political rank, he is an international businessman. >> what michael cohen said on capitol hill, there was some financial irregularity. >> i'm wondering if there's l.g.ation presented which nancy pelosi has talked about mandating every person running for president in the united states has to show their tax returns especially considering
the fact this has been the common thread from when donald trump announced he was running for president until now two years into i had presidency. >> you have to show it to buy a house. >> bernie sanders has got encriticized for saying he's going release his tax returns. >> and he hasn't. >> thank you very much. congressman tim ryan of ohio is joining the crowded 20 presidential field. watch this. >> this country, as you all know is divided. if i can just say that this has been going on a long time. our country has been divided for a long time. i can go back into the late 1970 when my father-in-law lost his job when youngstown sheet and tube closed. he was off 13 months. just bought a newhouse. i can go back a few weeks where my daughter called crying from school her friend evers crying to her, her dad just got
transferred at the local general motors plant, the kids had to move. my daughter called me and said, you got to do something. and i said i'm going to do something. and i'm going to run for president of the united states. >> so ryan plans to officially kick off his campaign with a rally with local union leaders in youngstown, ohio on saturday afternoon. congressman ryan will be coming up on "morning joe" to discuss his 2020 run. >> michael bennet of colorado was diagnosed with prostate cancer late last month. he sat down with chuck todd on "meet the press" daily. watch. >> do you feel any different knowing this diagnosis? >> no. you don't -- nobody likes hearing they have cancer, that's for sure. i mostly feel overwhelmed how lucky i am. >> if you get cancer free you're
100% in. >> right. >> no ambiguity. >> any time you hear the "c" word, it doesn't reorient you maybe about what you want to do. did this actually -- does this focus you more? a >> this is something i want to do. i think i have something to contribute. we need to focus on what the country needs us to focus on which the fact that incomes haven't risen for americans in the last 40 years. that's where the focus needs to be in this campaign. we need to be disciplined about it or we can lose to donald trump. >> certainly be praying for him during this treatment. investigators are sharing what they now know about the final moments before the deadly ethiopian airlines crash last month. findings show the pilots followed all of boeing's emergency procedures but still could not regain control. tom costello has the latest on
this. >> reporter: within seconds of taking off ethiopia ran flight 302 was in trouble. one of the plane's external sensors seemed to fail possibly after a bird strike sending data to suggest the plane was nose up and could stall. the pilots control column began shaking violently with a stall warning. then the plane's new mcas anti-stall system pushed the nose down. two and a half minutes into flight, pilots followed boeing's procedures and cut the power. >> the crew followed april procedures but of not able to control the aircraft. >> reporter: turning off mcas turned off the plane's electric trim feature that keeps it level and the plane was flying much faster than it should. so fast the pilots struggled to fly the plane nahinu ally. they turned the automatic system back on which re-engaged mcas putting the plane in a fatal nose divisive. >> the fact they turned it back
on was that the final nail in the coffin? if so then they should have followed procedure. >> reporter: the crew never reduced speed. if they had they might have been able to fly manually. >> the environment in that cockpit was one of chaos. it was complex. things were happening very quickly. there were multiple failures. they ran out of time. >> reporter: boeing acknowledged the mcas sensors in ethiopian and indonesian crashes. >> most accidents are caused bay chain of events. this, again, is the case here. we know we can break one of those chain links in these two accidents. >> reporter: so as boeing is now working on the software upgrade for mcas that could take a few more weeks. they identified one other software issue related to this integration of the new software into the overall computer system. and that's the concern. as they work through the computer problem they may identify other lines of code
that may need to be corrected. >> there's been so much back and forth as to whether or not these ethiopian airline ploirts pilots were trained to deal with this mcas system or not. still ahead, everybody, some breaking news concerning brexit. prime minister theresa may -- >> no? >> is looking for another delay. >> what a surprise. plus how lawmakers rebuff the president with a vote to end support for the area in yemen setting up president's second veto. we'll tell you about that coming up next. (burke) at farmers, we've seen almost everything,
you should be mad at tech that makes things worse. but you're not, because you have e*trade whose tech makes life easier by automatically adding technical patterns on charts and helping you understand what they mean. don't get mad, get e*trade. welcome back. into some breaking news across the pond this morning where with one week to go until the newest date for tcu to leave the european union, british prime minister theresa may, guess what? has formally requested another brexit extension. this time until june 30th. parliament has rejected may's brexit deal three times and has already rejected every other
brexit alternative put forward in a series of nonbinding votes. you get a sense parliament doesn't want to leave the eu, i think that's what they are saying. the eu has agreed late last month to conditionally delay the brexit until april 12th. we're waiting to see what the eu says next. in a major reypudiation of the president, they have voted to end all military support for yemen. the senate has twice passed the resolution, most recently last month. the house passed a similar resolution in february after being barred from taking any action on the senate's bill under then speaker paul ryan. it's the first time a resolution to end military action under the quote war powers act of 1973 has
reached the president's desk. trump is expected, though, to veto the measure. it does not appear congress has the votes to override him. let's switch gears and bring in bill karins with a check on your weather. >> you know the northeast in the fall, people drive to go see the fake leaves and great lakes. in california thousands of people are going and clogging these roads to see what they are calling the super bloom. it's a once in a generation event. they had such a wet winter, now a pretty warm nice spring. flowers -- this is what it looks like. this is antelope canyon in california. one hour wait times to drive through to see this gorgeous scenery. if you actually are flying above california and you look down this is what it looks like. this is walker canyon. you can see these are the poppys. all the orange and there's even some green in here too. it's really amazing event going on in california right now. let's get from your weekend forecast and severe weather will
be the area of concern. 27 million people from dallas to little rock through louisiana on saturday. it's going to be all the typical hazards. we'll get large hail, damaging winds, isolated tornadoes. on sunday we spread to it missouri into areas of the tennessee valley, into areas of manipulates. 42 million people. weekend forecast that's going to be the big concern is where we deal with our severe weather. on saturday nice day mid-atlantic. northeast. ohio valley looks good. there's our storm for area of the northwest especially. then by sunday we're still pretty good in the northeast but then rainey weather moves into the ohio valley and there's your strong storms there in the south but i never seen as many beautiful pictures than that super bloom. >> i've been seeing beautiful pictures as well, cherry blossoms on the east coast. >> last weekend they got the peak. >> where are those canyons in the state of california? >> antelope canyon. that takes a google maps request. i'll be right back. >> a question bill doesn't know. you stumped him.
thanks a lot, yas. >> i think if you're showing pictures of canyon you would know which part of the state those canyons were. >> still ahead jpmorgan chase chairman jamie dimon sounds the alarm telling shareholders the american dream is alive, but frail. >> we have a preview of today's jobs report. we're back in a moment. n a momet video games have evolved. why hasn't the way you bank? virtual wallet from pnc bank helps make it easier to see what you're spending, stash more into savings and stay on top of your finances in a digital world. just one way pnc is modernizing banking to help make things easier. pnc bank. make today the day.
