7:01 am

7:02 am
savannah continues on maternity leave. we have a lot to get to. potential explosive, yet unverified reports, that the russian government has compromising information about donald trump. the information was included in briefing materials, and it was based on separate, longer document paid for by political operatives and opponents of mr. trump. which included unsubstantiated allegations of sexual activities by him in russia. we're going to talk to mr. trump's chief of staff in a moment. first, our political team has complete coverage, beginning with nbc's andrea mitchell. good morning to you. >> good morning, matt. only nine days before he takes the oath of office, and hours before his first news conference in six months, donald trump is dealing with that potential bomb shell about russia, which he is calling a political witch hunt. >> reporter: two u.s. officials tell nbc news briefing materials prepared for both the
7:03 am
president-elect and president obama included information concerning potentially damaging, but unverified allegations, about donald trump's dealings with russia. information initially circulated among trump's republican opponents and passed to u.s. intelligence agencies. the officials would not say whether the fbi was actively investigating the information. the president-elect tweeting in capital letters, fake news. a total political witch hunt. nbc's lester holt in an exclusive interview asked president obama about it. >> i ordered a report about russia's involvement in the hacking of the dnc and passing on that information to wikileaks because i felt it was important now that the election was over, for everybody to understand exactly what happened in order to prevent it from happening again. in order to make sure we're working effectively with our allies so that misinformation and cyber attacks don't end up
7:04 am
undermining democratic structures around the world. >> reporter: the president-elect's spokesman, spicer, calling the allegation pathetic. while kellyanne conway told seth meyers trump was never briefed on the allegation. >> they appended two pages to the bottom of the intelligence -- >> i believe it said they did brief him. >> he is not aware of it. >> that concerns me. >> reporter: earlier, james comey would not say whether his investigation investigated possible contacts between the trump campaign and the russian government. >> i would never comment on investigations, whether we have one or not, in an open forum like this. >> reporter: surprising one senator, since comey broke precedent, speaking volumes about the clinton e-mail investigation. >> the irony of that statement, i cannot avoid. >> reporter: all this while trump's nominee nor secretary of
7:05 am
state, exxonmobil ceo rex till erms -- tillerson will have his confirmation meeting today. he said, our nato allies are right to be alarmed at a resurgent russia. democrats have questions. >> we understand he was a business person doing business in russia. can he now all of a sudden change and be interested in the foreign policy issues, american values, and not be so concerned about making mr. putin happy? >> and a major question for donald trump once he becomes president, will he continue the investigations into russian intelligence and interference in the american election, or will he cancel the sanctions that president obama ordered against vladimir putin? matt and meredith, back to you. >> andrea, thank you very much.
7:06 am
reince priebus will serve as president-elect trump's chief of staff. good morning. good to see you. >> good morning, matt. >> let me ask you straight ahead, during that intelligence briefing last week at trump tower with the head of the fbi, the cia, dni and nsa, was mr. trump briefed on the contents of this and the two-page summary of that information? >> i'll tell you this, i was in the room, matt. the first i heard of any of these wild accusations was when someone printed it off of the buzzfeed website which, by the way, buzzfeed themselves said it is not even credible. what i can tell you is that this is not an intelligence document. this is some retired agent somewhere out in the world that was doing opposition research on donald trump during the campaign. and i looked into a couple of these accusations. so i brought one of the accusations was that michael cohen, who works in the trump
7:07 am
organization, went to prague to meet with some russian agent. the guy has never been to prague in his life. i told him to give me his passport. i looked through the passport, matt. he's never been to prague. in fact, it was later last evening verified that he was actually in california. >> so are you saying -- >> look -- >> -- the heads of the foreign intelligence agencies would take the time to brief the president and perhaps give a summary of this information to the president-elect if they thought there was a chance this was simply fake news? >> didn't happen. there are certain things i can't say and do say, but what i can tell you is that i was there. these crazy accusations, these -- that i just talked about were never discussed. >> reince, have you read the full report, the 35 pages? >> i've read most of it. but what i can tell you is that
7:08 am
even "new york times" last night refused to public this document, which is not an intelligence document. keep in mind, this is some retired guy somewhere out in the world acting like ian fleming, apparently trying to maybe write a fiction novel. i don't know what he is doing. >> in the past, he has been a credible source. although in this case -- >> in the past, how do you know that? >> he is said to have gotten information from other sources who cannot be verified within russia. >> someone in the past who has been a source, somewhere in something that you don't know about is somehow now attached to this document that not even the "new york times" will publish. which bases its entire report on a meeting in prague that never happened. the guy has never been to prague. here we are on the "today" show, w one of the greatest morning shows in america, talking about stupidity. actually, offensive crap that we shouldn't be talking about.
7:09 am
buzzfeed itself said it is not credible. the "new york times" said it was done by opposition researchers that wanted to hurt trump during the campaign. this is garbage. >> okay. let me ask you this though -- >> shameful is what it is. >> have you taken the time to just look mr. trump in the eye and say to him, here's what they're alleging. can you tell me, point-blank, none of this ever happened? >> he said it was total garbage. and i'm keeping it clean. >> so why do you believe that the intelligence committee would hand over this document if it is total garbage? >> listen, i don't know if they did or didn't. if they did, shame on them. but i don't know who -- where this came from. look, this guy is a paid political operative. it is not like he is a guy that is in the intelligence community in the uk. this is a guy who retired, opened up a shop, gets paid by political operatives to go dig up dirt and create these memos. this is not an intelligence
7:10 am
document. an intelligence document doesn't have handwritten page numbers on the corner. it's not -- and the other thing i can tell you is if this was actually something our intelligence community believed in, it would have been published for the public, and the rest of the report would have been available to the public. obviously, it wasn't credible enough for them to actually put in a document for the public to see. >> the timing of this, reince, comes on the -- came on the eve of this news conference that -- this long-awaited news conference from president-elect trump today. will he address this at the head of that news conference? >> i mean, it might come up, but i would imagine his answers are going to be similar to what you heard me say. which is, honestly, guys, if the thing is based on a meeting in prague, when the guy that was supposed to be meeting was never in prague his entire life -- it is verifiable. the news media is -- this is going to be decided whether he was in prague or not. he's never been to prague in his life. it's been reported he was in
7:11 am
california. i don't even know why we're talking about this. >> there is one other side of this. >> this is a document that has been floating around for months. >> let me, again, because it is important, we're going to -- this story is going to develop or go nowhere. you're right about that. let me ask for the record, can you say with 100% confidence that mr. trump or any aide or former aide, nor his lawyer, had any contact with russian intelligence officials or the russian government during the campaign? >> here's what i can tell you, i questioned folks on this matter. i've been a litigator for 14 years before i took this job. i looked at the passport page by page. it was then verified that this person wasn't in prague. he was in california. it didn't happen. and the other salacious garbage that was in this report didn't happen. so, look, we're talking about fake news.
7:12 am
it is shameful. it isn't a document that came from our intelligence community. it is research that has been floating around for months. >> reince, i'm not sure that's what matt was asking. i think he is asking, can you say with 100% confidence that mr. trump or anybody in his campaign had no conversations with anybody in russia during the campaign. >> no. i mean, i'm just telling you, it is all phony baloney garbage. >> okay. >> i've read this on buzzfeed. there is nothing to it. look, i know you guys are going to keep talking about it, but i think it is one of these shameful thing that is bubbled up at the last second here before the press conference, and it is too bad. >> i don't think you could have stated your side of it any more strongly, and we appreciate that. >> thank you so much. >> all right. thanks, guys. >> let's turn to jeremy bash who served as chief of staff at the cia and department of defense. good morning to you. >> good morning, matt. >> you've heard what reince
7:13 am
priebus said, called it total garbage. agrees with mr. trump's assessment that it is fake news. this goes to the voracity of a source and information, credibility of information. what are your sources telling you? >> well, i do think it makes sense this morning to drive under a caution flag and not race ahead of the facts. here's what we know. here's what we think. here's what we don't know. we know the russian government uses information to try to compromise people and influence our election process. that is what the declassified intelligence report that was published last friday said. it said the russian government was trying to meddle, trying to influence our policies, our political systems. he's wh here's what we think. we think intelligence officials thought the information was important enough to pass on to the president, the president-elect and congressional leaders. they're in a catch 22, matt. if they don't give their boss a heads up that the allegations are out there, they can be accused of hiding the ball.
7:14 am
if it is out there, it is risks of leaks and misinformation and people start talking about it. of course, what we don't know, matt, at this hour, is whether any of the underlying allegations are accurate or fair. >> when it came to hacking the intelligence community had a very high sense of confidence about that information. do you think they feel the same way about this 35-page report? >> oh, i don't know how the intelligence community views the 35-page report. i think in their minds, in the minds of people whose job it is to guard the security of the united states, their view is that donald trump is going to be the 45th president of the united states. president obama said last night he was freely and fairly elected. he is going to take the oath of office. when a foreign intelligence service tries to use information, any information, to try to use leverage over our president, that affects all americans. that's not a democratic issue, republican issue. he is the president of all americans. and if some other government is going to try to use leverage over us, that becomes a national
7:15 am
security threat. >> all right, jeremy bash, thanks for your insight. we appreciate it. >> thanks, matt. as we mentioned, president obama delivered his farewell address to the nation last night. the 50-minute speech covering everything from his achievements to the challenges that lie ahead. nbc's kristen welker is here with more on the speech. good morning. good to see you. >> great to see both of you. it was an emotional night last night in chicago. president obama saying good-bye while also facing a legacy that's in jeopardy. >> reporter: president obama returning to his adopted hometown of chicago and bidding a final farewell to an electrified crowd and a divided nation. >> made me a better president. and you made me a better man. >> reporter: the president giving a robust defense of his legacy, which could all but there dismantled by his successor. >> if i had told you we would open a new chapter with the cuban people, shut down iran's nuclear weapons program without firing a shot, take out the mastermind of 9/11, you might
7:16 am
have said our sights were set a little too high. >> reporter: while the president didn't directly rebuke donald trump, he acknowledged, for him, this moment marks a setback. >> for every two steps forward, it often feels we take one step back. >> reporter: the speech was also a call to action to protect the nation's democracy. >> america is no fragile thing, but the gains of our long journey to freedom are not assured. >> reporter: and the president warned the biggest threats, hyperpartisanship, corrosive political rhetoric and discrimination in all its forms. >> that's why i reject discrimination against muslim americans. who are just as patriotic as we are. >> reporter: emotions overflowed when the president paid tribute to his family. >> michelle, for the past 25 years, you have not only been my wife and mother of my children, you have been my best friend.
7:17 am
>> reporter: and his vice president. >> you were the first decision i made as a nominee, and it was the best. not just because you have been a great vice president, but because in the bargain, i gained a brother. >> reporter: after eight years and with his legacy on the line, america's first african-american president brought his historic journey full circle, returning to his original rallying cry. >> yes, we can. yes, we did. yes, we can. thank you. god bless you. >> so the question everyone was asking last night, where was the president's younger daughter, sasha? white house officials say she had an exam, something that parents and kids all across the country can probably relate to. last night also marked one more bookend. the president's final trip on air force one. >> what was sasha's teacher's name? you think you could get out of
7:18 am
one exam at that moment. >> serious student. >> it was quite a speech. >> emotional night. great throb. >> -- to be there. >> lester holt interviewed the president before his final speech and you can see it on "barack obama, the reality of hope." friday at 10:00 p.m., 9:00 p.m. feder central here on nbc. >> mr. roker is here. we've been talking about the west coast and we're going to continue. portland is getting hammered. some places picking up 12 inches or more. schools throughout the region, closed down. portland's airport open, technically, but there is going to be massive delays as they clear runways. and more is coming, especially from central and southern california up into the north. we're looking at more snow. it is going to continue to pound, especially this next storm coming in for southern california today on into tomorrow, with more snow into central california. then what we're looking at basically is a lot of rain.

9:14 am
i took warfarin for over 15 years. until i learned more about once-daily xarelto®... a latest-generation blood thinner. then i made the switch. xarelto® significantly lowers the risk of stroke in people with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. it has similar effectiveness to warfarin. warfarin interferes with vitamin k and at least six blood-clotting factors. xarelto® is selective. targeting one critical factor of your body's natural clotting function. for people with afib currently well-managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle-related signs or symptoms.
9:15 am

9:23 am
i actually had a very specific situation where i met with this kind of gruff, abrasive man over the telephone. we were going to actually have a contact in person. i researched out to his assistant ahead of time and said, can you tell me about him? she said, he is into bass fishing. i don't know if that'll help. i made the effort to do research, watched bass masters and kind of wove that into the conversation. he just lit up. it really changed the whole experience. it made everything else go smoother. >> i think in interviews, one of the things that i've learned doing this job is that it is good to be prepared but you have to listen. >> absolutely. >> to the person that is either interviewing you or you're interviewing. >> what is their mood? are they under the weather, upbeat, seem like they'll be more focused on the practical, tactical nature of the conversation or looking for your style, your personality and your condoleezza ri charisma? >> match the tone.
