10 app. >> "today" show starts right now. enjoy the day. good morning, moment of truth. the most anticipated showdown on capitol hill in a generation just hours away. fired fbi director james comey set to testify that president trump repeatedly had inappropriate and concerning conversations with him. the commander in chief allegedly demanding loyalty, pressing him on the russia investigation. overnight, a former top intelligence official calling the russian scandal bigger than watergate. so why does the president say he feels vindicated? "today," thursday, june 8, 2017. >> from nbc news, this is a special edition of "today." the comey hearing with matt lauer live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza, and savannah guthrie live from washington,
d.c. and good morning, everybody. welcome to this special split-edition of "today" on a thursday morning. so glad you're with us. it's a big day here on capitol hill. matt, you're back in studio 1a and the stage is set for some consequential testimony. >> this is the political version of must-see tv. millions of people are going to stop what they're doing and watch from home or from their workplace. but what does it take, savannah, to be one of the lucky one toss actually get a seat in that hearing room? >> well, you have to be an early riser, that's for sure. i can show you a live shot outside the hearing room in the hart senate office building. people are already there. it will be filled with lawmakers, with staff, a lot of reporters, but also spectators willing to wait in line. we'll take you what we think will be happening here today. this hearing gets underway, 10:00 a.m. eastern, former fbi director james comey will begin his testimony before the senate intelligence committee. he's going to begin by reading an opening statement, one that was, in fact, released ahead of
his appearance yesterday. in that statement he recalls nine one-on-one conversations with the president. he details five of them, three meetings and two phone calls, that happened between january and may. >> now, according to comey, those conversations focused on the investigation into possible russian interference in the 2016 election. and he considered the interactions, everything from very awkward to inappropriate. now, following those opening remarks, comey will then face two rounds of questions from a panel of eight republicans, six democrats and one independent. >> as you might expect, we've got every aspect of today's pivotal hearing covered for you. and we'll be talking exclusively to some of the lawmakers questioning mr. comey in a matter of hours, including senator harris that you see right there, but let me start with nbc white house chief correspondent hallie jackson with more on what we are learning from comey's opening statement. good morning to you. >> reporter: savannah, good morning to you. and this room is really the
center of the political universe right now up. this is what it is all going to come down to where james comey will be seated in just a couple hours from now. yes, we're already getting a preview of what he's going to say in his opening statement, but it's the questions coming from senators lined up here that could reveal new information as these photographers behind me here get set up early this morning. the white house, the president's allies, the rnc, already getting their counter-pony strategy ready, e-mailing out talking points overnight to try to bat back some of the criticism the president is expected to get, particularly from democrats on this committee. but remember, some of this testimony that james comey has revealed so far does contradict what the president has said publicly. all of it setting up a kind of he said/he said showdown. not even james comey could wait until today to deliver his testimony, asking the senate intelligence committee to release his opening statement early. in vivid detail, the former fbi director outlines his meetings with the president who fired
him, including the first, january 6th, at trump tower. it's where he says he told donald trump, we did not have an open counter-intelligence case on him, comey writes. i offered that assurance. the president pointing to thatted a validation. his outside counsel says he is pleased that the president was not under a russian probe adding, the president feels completely and totally vindicated. gop allies acknowledge comey said that it would be good to find out if satellite associates of his did something wrong. still, other parts of comey's statement contradict what the president has said publicly, like when comey describes a meeting on february 14th, the day after then national security adviser mike flynn resigned. comey writes, the president began by saying, i want to talk about mike flynn. adding later, he is a good guy. i hope you can let this go. >> did you, at any time, urge former fbi director james comey
in any way, shape or form to close or back down the investigation into michael flynn? >> no. no. next question. >> reporter: then there was a dinner in late january. comey says the president called him with the invitation. here's what the president told lester holt. >> that dinner was arranged, i think he asked for the dinner, and he wanted to stay on as the fbi head. >> reporter: at that dinner, another crucial moment. the president said, i need loyalty. i expect loyalty, according to comey, who writes, i didn't move, speak or change my facial expression in any way during the awkward silence that followed. we simply looked at each other in silence. later, he says he told the president, you will always get honesty from me. >> is it appropriate for the president to ask for a question of loyalty for the fbi director? >> yeah, no, obviously, i don't think that is. that position is treated e independently and he crosses that. >> do you think james comey is
credible? >> i don't have any reason to doubt his credibility. >> james clapper weighing in on the significance of the russia controversy. >> i have to say, though, that i think, compare the two, that watergate pails, really, in my view, compared to what we're confronting now. >> reporter: comey's testimony will cap an intense 24 hours on capitol hill, which started wednesday when the nation's top intelligence officials faced questions on reports that the president asked them to get involved in the fbi's russia investigation. >> i do not ever recall being pressured to do so. >> i do not feel pressure to intervene or interfere in any way. >> reporter: when asked to share more, they declined. >> i'm not going to discuss the specifics of conversations with the president of the united states. >> i'm not going to answer any questions. >> it's inappropriate for me to share that with the public. >> reporter: the committee's top
republican shot this sharp warning. >> at no time should you be in a position where you come to congress without an answer. >> reporter: so expect to get more questions today coming from this lineup right here, this is where the senators will be sitting. and here are the key folks to watch up here, number one, the top republican on the senate intelligence committee, richard burr, also senator rubio aggressive in his questioning question. and seated here is mark warner with a preview of his statement. watch for him to say that this behavior from the president is simply unacceptable. savannah, back to you. >> hallie jackson, thank you. senator harris from california is one of the democratic members of the senate intelligence committee, she's with us exclusively. senator, you're one of the people sitting in those chairs asking questions today. you have read the statement, of course, from director comey. you're a former prosecutor among other things. >> correct. >> if you accept every single word of that statement as true, do you think there's a
sufficient case for obstruction of justice? >> i think there are a lot more questions to ask of mr. comey. i'm looking forward to the hearing today, but there's no question we have to get to the truth in what's going on. comey's statement, the written statement, validates some of the reports that we have been hearing that led us to this point, whether we are questioning if there's obstruction of justice. he outlines conversations initiated by the president that seem to be intended to interfere with the investigation, at least as it relates to flynn. his letter in terms of his written statement, comey's statement, validates that he was asked to take a loyalty oath. you know, when i think about that, i was a district attorney of san francisco, the attorney general of california and then a united states senator. i've taken the oath many times. the oath was to the constitution of the united states, not to an individual. it's completely inappropriate. >> but, on the other hand, there are aspects of this statement that do corroborate what trump himself said. the president said, i was assured personally three times
by director comey that i was not personally under investigation. you were asked about this on an interview. you said, as a prosecutor, you would have never talked to someone who may have been in the zone of the investigation and tell them they are not someone we're looking at. that just doesn't happen. your words. it happened. >> that's right. you are right. and so, at least it is inappropriate. but what it will say today is, we're going to get more facts and more information and see what's there in terms of what should be the next inappropriate, next step for the united states senate and any investigator looking at this matter. >> do you think the comey statement would be more of a smoking gun than what you see? >> i didn't have any expectations. i think there's actually about all of this, nothing that any of us could have expected when we think about the normal goings-on of a president of the united states or a criminal investigation. but i will say that as we go forward, it is very important that we get to the heart of the matter and to the truth. what happened?
that's the most important thing. this certainly is taking on a proportion of drama, and everyone is watching it, but this is not a television show. this is about the office of the president of the united states. and it is critical that we find out what is going on, what has happened, to get to the truth and move on. >> but some people say, look, you look at these facts, if you put them in the light most favorable to the president, this is not a washington guy, this is somebody who came in and maybe did not fully grasp that it's not appropriate, for example, to say, hey, do you need to get to this investigation? or could you say publicly i'm not under investigation, the thing you told me privately? why is it not a reasonable interpretation? why is that not -- to give him the benefit of the doubt, why is that not credible? >> when you take the oath to be the president of the united states, the american public has a right to expect that you know better. period. >> what's the number one question you have for comey today? >> i have lots of questions,
including whether he spoke with jeff sessions about the investigation. was that before or after jeff sessions' recusal? what conversations were initiated by any other member of the staff about what was going on with the investigation? i have questions about whether there were any other conversations with anyone else initiated by the people of comey about the nature of the investigation or asking him to slow it down or stop? >> kamala harris, a busy day for you, thank you for getting up with us. >> thank you. we turn to chuck todd and our national security analyst. chuck, i'll start with you. this is vintage comey because there are things that republicans will like and there are things that democrats will like. and, therefor, nobody is totally pleased by it. >> no, there's not. and it's also very much written with a narrative. and that is something that, i think, if you are in the trump white house, you're really concerned about that because he
knows how to wag the tail. we saw that. one of the things everybody sort of needs to take a breath is, there's another thing about james comey. he doesn't -- he doesn't put it all out there at first. so i have a feeling this is an appetizer as far as he's concerned. and that there is, look, there are three interactions he did not talk about at all or detail at all. he had nine conversations, we're missing three. it will be interesting to hear the story behind those three. >> jeremy, you're a lawyer, do you consider this document standing alone sufficient for a claim of obstruction of justice? >> well, what struck me, savannah, is that the president made jim comey re-audition for the job. the statute says the fbi director serves for ten years to avoid this situation. so what the president was doing is holding a threat over his head saying, if you don't pledge loyalty to me, if you don't shut down flynn, if you don't lift the cloud, i will fire you and he made good on that threat. so i think there is at least a very reasonable basis for bob mueller to proceed here. we need other witnesses. we need to ask other people
involve in the comey firing what was discussed. and that's where the white house could exert executive privilege to shut down those witnesses. >> we'll see because there's a lot more to come here. but, chuck, i know you picked up on an interesting did tidbit in this statement. if there was a satellite person, someone in my orbit, some staffer who did something wrong on, with regard to russia, that would be good to know. it comes very close to acknowledging that perhaps something did go on. he just wants to be clear he himself didn't do it. >> look, there's been by some investigating this, one of the assumptions is, trump himself would not have been told the details. would not have been told much other than, you don't want to know where we got this information or that sort of mindset. and then here is now the president almost confirming his own suspicion on that. at a minimum, that to me is striking news. there's a number of questions if i were a senator up there that you suddenly want to ask when
you ask director comey. he said that, did you immediately take that to the investigation or thes? is that a new line you're pursuing? that could be the most important nugget that comey has shared. >> just about out of time, but jeremy, is director comey liable for that allegation. if this is so bad, why didn't you do something? why didn't you raise it right away? >> yes, he is. but let's not forget the gravity of the situation. he was an investigates an adversary's attempt to interfere in our election. that's about as big as it gets. >> chuck and jeremy, thank you. coming up, we'll have a lot more on what to expect when mr. comey arrives. and yes, we'll take a look at the watch parties being held across the country. and chuck, lester holt and i will have special live coverage of the morning's hearing starting at 10:00 a.m. eastern right here on nbc. for the moment, mat, back to you. we'll get back to you as soon as possible. thank you very much. a lot to talk about here as well including new developments in a desperate search for a military
plane from myanmar that disappeared with 120 people on board. nbc's kelly cobiella has that story. kelly, good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning. they think they found the wreckage of that plane that disappeared mid-flight with 120 people, soldiers, their families, including 15 children on board. this happened off the southern coast of myanmar. the plane was heading north when it vanished. the aircraft, a chinese-made y8 transport plane took off wednesday afternoon local time, lost contact just 29 minutes into flight while at cruising altitude over open water. the military sent out search planes and they are still out this morning. they now have spotted several bodies, including a woman and a child along with some debris. life jackets and debris 15 miles offshore. no reports of a mayday call. they are still hoping to find survivors. >> kelly cobiella, thank you
very much. there's another big story we're following, a new court appearance today for reality winner. she's the 25-year-old nsa contractor accused of leaking a highly-classified document about russia's election meddling into an online magazine. gabe gutierrez is at the courthouse in augusta, georgia. gabe, good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning. the government says reality winter admitted to leaking classified information, but her lawyer says he has not seen the proof. today her family hopes she'll be released on bail while she fights the charges. she's the first leak arrest of the trump administration and today reality winner's lawyers say she plans to plead not guilty. >> the bigger issue is why the government has put so much effort and resources into prosecuting the low-level government employee as opposed to the bigger question, was russia involved in an attempt to interfere with our election? >> reporter: prosecutors say winner admitted to leaking a top-secret document to an online
news site targeting local election officials in a company that provided software for the 2016 election. the 25-year-old yoga instructor was an air force vet who worked for an nsa contractor in a georgia military base. >> she would not jeopardize anybody's safety. she would not. i can tell you that for certainty. >> reporter: the white house says any disclosure of classified information could threaten national security. if she's convicted of violating the espionage act, winner could face up to ten years in prison. matt? >> gabe, thank you very much. a lot of people up late last night because of a big game. the golden state warriors now just a win away from the championship after knocking off the cleveland cavaliers. the final in that was 118-113. game three of the nba final, the warriors ended the game on an 11-0 scoring run. kevin durant led his team with
31 points. golden state has not lost a single game in the playoffs so far. they will try for the sweep and another nba title on friday night. and don't forget, game five of the stanley cup final is tonight. pittsburgh penguins and national predators are all tied up, two games apiece. you can see them at 8:00/7:00 central time right here on nbc. a lot happening. >> i love when you do sports. >> i love sports, you know that. dylan is in for al with a check of the weather. a lot of rain down through florida. take a look at some of the flooding we saw in plantation, florida. cars trying to drive through what was about 11 inches of rain all said and done with this storm system. that's still continuing. but look at this, entire neighborhoods under water, horses out in the fields just trying to survive all of the rain that was out there. and the car still trying to drive through it. and it's not recommended to do that because you just don't know how deep that water is. now, we are going to see more rain today. but take a look at tallahassee, five times the normal amount of rainfall this june.
ft. myers, almost three times. and ft. lauderdale, four times as much rain we would normally see. this cold front is going to stall out across florida as we go throughout the next several days. so that means another round of showers and another round of storms. more rainfall is possible. i would say another three inches is possible in some areas. that's raz, where are you? guys...i'm trapped, my boss wants me here. we are not leaving without you. just go downstairs now. ♪ rapunzel?! ♪ look for my c-hr. ♪ that was fun. wait till you see where we're going. introducing an all-new crossover. toyota c-hr. toyota. let's go places. good morning, i'm meteorologist erika martin. the temperatures are climbing into the 70s for today. 82 on friday. 86 on saturday. we will officially start

7:30 on a very busy thursday morning. it's the 8th day of june, 2017. take a look at that building. the eyes of the world focused on that building, the u.s. capitol, where today fired fbi director james comey is set to testify. probably one of the most highly-anticipated congressional hearings in decades. i'm in new york. savannah is down there getting ready for it. savannah, good morning again. >> hi, guys, good morning to you. the president will be watching today. he's got a busy schedule as well as a speech at a washington hotel this afternoon. he's hosting a summit with governors and mayors. but the real question is, what will he be doing with his device? will he be tweeting during that hearing with director comey which starts at 10:00 eastern? we shall see.
>> we'll find out soon. thank you, savannah. but first a look at other stories making headlines in our world today, including a missile launch from north korea. the regime firing cruise missiles into the waters between the korean peninsula and japan. that's according to south korea's defense ministry. today's launches come a week after the u.n. security council passed sanctions against north korea. and the bill cosby trial, could prosecutors be wrapping up the case against him? his accuser says he sexually assaulted him at his home in 2004. her mother also took the stand. the jurors could get the case as early as next week. we'll have a live report from that courthouse in our next half hour. and here is a fascinating one. scientists say fossils discovered in morocco are the oldest known remains ever found of homosapiens and are around
300,000 years old. that's 100,000 years older than previously discovered fossils in ethiopia. and the search continues this morning for your voice. what happened there? >> i know. a late night in nashville does not bode well for any of us. >> tea, honey and lemon, hoda. >> gotcha. back here in washington, james comey's testimony before the senate intelligence committee today has been months in the making. it will mark the first time he's spoken in months since that abrupt firing last month. but just how exactly did we get to this point? nbc national correspondent peter alexander has part of this story this morning. peter, good morning. >> reporter: hey, savannah. good morning to you. new details this morning, a senior white house aide telling me, president trump will be monitoring james comey's hearing as time permits in a white house dining room alongside his legal team and close advisers. comey's testimony today marks the most consequential day in prurp president trump's nearly 20 weeks in office, in what he says
will shape his legacy and our understanding of this complicated relationship. at 6 footfoo6'8", james comey h looming over this relationship. this relationship dates back to the 2016 campaign. >> they were extremely careless in the handling of the highly sensitive information. >> reporter: comey's review of hillary clinton and her colleagues talks about ending the investigation without criminal charges. >> after reading all these findings of her being so guilty, he let her off the hook. >> reporter: comey informed congress he reopened the inquiry after discovering new e-mails prompting mr. trump to change his tune. >> it took gut, i'll tell you what. what he did, he brought back his reputation. >> reporter: their first
face-to-face meeting early january in trump tower. there the president briefed mr. comey about being involved with something in years before. something trump denied. their paths soon crossed again, a one-on-one dinner a week after the inauguration. comey stunned when the president said, i need loyalty, i expect loyalty. his answer? you will always get honesty from me. the next bump in the oval office. according to comey, the president asking him to back off an investigation into ousted national security adviser michael flynn. after acknowledging the russia investigation, comey would return to capitol hill in may to defend the decision to discuss reopening the e-mail case. a call clinton claims cost her the election. >> it makes me mildly nauseous to think that we might have had some impact on the election. >> reporter: he was fired six days later. the president offering this
assessment to lester holt. >> he's a show bug, he's a grand stander. >> reporter: a day after meeting with russian officials in the oval office, privately dismissing him as a nut job. but ahead of today's testimony, the president tempering his tough talk. >> i wish him luck. >> reporter: i just hung up with a top white house aide moments ago, they insist president trump is feeling very good going into today. that he did feel vindicated as his attorney insists. we'll hear from him today. he has the midday speech before a friendly crowd at the conservative coalition. but again, his public schedule is clear this morning. so will he tweet or will he leave the rebuttal to his rapid response team? we'll be watching. and apparently so will he. matt, back to you. >> peter, thank you very nicolle wallace is the host of e.m. ari melber, ourom is out tt the tab i'm going to swear you both into the
sena nicolle, i'll start t opening with you, w comey today? >> he met w president typing up his report. he started ki car. what happened at gutel sense th donald trump waship was going to be anywhere closen'tait unti got back to the office t first interaction? >> you? what's the question to ask gym comey? >> does jim comey think he was fired because of his resistance to all of the contacts he describes by donald trump, including interfering with the flynn investigation? >> and then i think for people who are still talking about possible obstruction of justice, that's where they put the period on the sentence. you've got the demand for
loyalty. you've got, can you back off of and get away from the flynn investigation. jim comey or james comey does not agree with either of those things that he's fired. does that complete the sentence? >> that's the question that savannah posted to camala harris there. what is obstruction in the short answer is it's not made of words. it's made of words plus action. so jim comey could outline further today whether he thinks subsequent actions were punishment for his resistance, what he views is his integrity. >> nicolle, if you read that statement, you say, this is my take on it. this is a guy who happened to be the president of the united states sticking up for a pal, mike flynn, who had a bad day the day before, he was forced to resign, he's saying to james comey, hey, can you do us a favor, can you back off? he's already gone through a tough time. as you could say, this is a guy who is a businessman, donald trump. he's used to surrounding himself with loyal employees. and what he's doing here, he's
demanding loyalty from a guy who is in a key job. it might be icky, it might be awkward, it might be inappropriate, but it's not illegal. >> well, it may be. listen, this is where the white house has landed. they have landed on the stupidity defense. he just didn't understand that the fbi is an independent law enforcement agency and was doing what you just described. this is where they have landed. this is where they have landed on foreign policy. he just didn't understand that you don't blow the cover of undercover agents. so he didn't get the intel. he didn't understand it was inappropriate to ask for the arms of your press operation and rapidly respond to stories you don't understand. if this is where they have landed, this is where they are going to have problems over and over again. >> let me play you a quick sound bite, ari. listen to this. >> did you, at any time, urge former director james comey in any way, shape or form to close or back down on the investigation into mike flynn? >> no. no.
next question. >> you have read the seven-page statement, opening statement from james comey. if he's telling the truth, can the president be telling the truth? >> no. i don't think so. this is an area where there was a very clear assertion by jim comey. by the way, he's under oath. and that goes to the problem with the so-called stupidity defense. is the defense that you did these things, but you didn't know what you were doing? or that you didn't do them, because that's different if you were misleading the public and potentially, at some point, potentially investigated bodies. the president has a lot of power. the question here is whether he went beyond that power. and jim comey's testimony might shed some more light on that. >> ari, nicolle, thank you very much. i know you'll be watching. let's get another check of the weather now for dylan in for al. thanks, matt. we have pretty wild weather out of north dakota yesterday. we saw a pretty wicked tornado on the ground there. you can see just how dark it is. that indicates it is picking up a lot of dirt and debris off the ground. no injuries were reported. it was in a pretty rural area.
but it is incredible to see that product on camera just spiraling around there. now, we are not really looking at that area across eastern north dakota to see storms today. it's a little farther to the west across most of montana where they could see a few isolated tornadoes. but the bigger threat will be for large hail and damaging wind gusts, including helena, montana. high pressure is building in through the middle of the country. that warm ridge is going to start shifting to the east. so temperatures today, minneapolis, 84. 84 in st. louis. birmingham, alabama, 80 degrees. but then we are going to notice temperatures get even warmer as we head through the weekend. by saturday, minneapolis, should hit 95 good morning, i'm meteorologist erika martin. temperature trend for the next couple days include temperatures in the 70s today. 82 on friday. 86 on saturday. we will track a heat wave with temperatures in the 90s by sunday. 93 is the expected high temperature. 9 on monday. we are flirting with 100 degrees to kick off the following
workweek. 96 on tuesday. the record high is 95 degrees. i think we'll break that record. so keep in mind you definitely want to stay hydrated. >> and you can find youd your f forecast 24/7 on the savannah? dylan, thank you. coming up next watergate, james washington's long history with washington's long history with high-profile on imy hand. i decided to see if there was a way for design to play a... ...positive role in what was going on in the world. there's a jacket that's reflective for visibility...es i usually do my fashion sketches on the computer. there's no lag time at all. it feels just like my markers. with fashion, you can dresspe it's really cool to sou i looked for reald ingredients for real taste.

welcome back to a special split-edition of "today." we learned last week former fbi director james comey would be testifying here on capitol hill this morning. and the countdown clock has been eagerly ticking down ever since. very soon, that hearing will take its place alongside other historic washington showdowns. and nbc's andrea mitchell has more on that. hi, andrea, good to be in your neck of the woods. >> it's great to have you here. in just a few hours, former fbi director james comey's words will be broadcast over three social networks and cable news, putting all eyes on bombshell rell ovations about his dealings with president trump. throughout history whenever a high-profile hearing happens on capitol hill, the whole country turns to watch. there are moments so dramatic, so compelling the nation comes together to stop, watch and listen. in 1954, a powerful senator joe

sign ever. can i kiss you right here? all right. hi! well, this must be you. why are we all holding your face? >> celebrating 50 years here in the big apple. >> that's awesome. do i look just like him? and good morning, everybody. welcome back. thank you for joining us on this special edition of "today." we are anticipating the hearing of james comey. and matt and hoda are back in new york. >> you talk about how anticipated this is. i thought it was an interesting decision that former director comey wanted the senate intelligence committee to release that opening statement in a day in advance of him appearing at this hearing. >> yeah, usually witnesses will release an opening statement, but it usually comes the morning of, maybe an hour before. this was unusual in that it came the day before. it was clear that director comey
wanted this to digest the complex narrative and perhaps give a hint to the intelligence committee members of questions he may be asked. so we'll see what happens. it could be the most pivotal day yet in the russia investigation. the fired fbi director james comey testifying before the senate intelligence committee. we already know some of what he's going to say because of that statement. let's go right to nbc's chief white house correspondent hallie jackson. hallie good morning to you again. >> reporter: good morning to you. the chairs are everyonety but you know every seat in here will be fill in a couple hours. no seat is as important as this one. this is where james comey will be sitting as he looks straight ahead at the senators asking him questions. i actually snapped a picture of that a couple minutes ago. i want to show you what james comey's view is essentially going to be for this thing. the questions that you just talked about with matt and hoda are going to be crucial in providing information about the president's actions. all of it, of course, the testimony from comey, what the president said publicly before, setting up a he said/he said
showdown. it's the most anticipated congressional hearing in years with fired fbi director james comey already offering a preview of what's to come. >> his statement reads more like a tom clancy novel. >> reporter: in his opening statement, comey describes telling the president-elect in january, we did not have an open counter-intelligence case on him. i offered that assurance. the president pointing to that as validation of what he's been saying. >> he said, you're not under investigation. >> reporter: this outside counsel writing, the president feels completely and totally vindicated. but comey appears to c describes a discussion about former national securitymikefly. comey quotes the president as saying, i hope you can see your way c t to letting flynn go. he is a good guy. president said last month. >> did you, at any time, urge irrmer fbi in any way, shape or form to
close or back down on the and also -- >> no. no.eporr: comey describes another crucial moment at a dinner in january. thesi need loyalty. comey, who writes, i didn't move, speakr expressio during the awkward silence that followed. we simply looked at each other in silence. >> is it appropriate for the president to ask for a question of loyalty for the fbi director? >> yeah, no, obviously, i don't think that is. fbi directors are supposed to be independent. that's something that is very, very critical. >> reporter: today's testimony by comey comes just one day after the president announced his intention to nominate christopher wray to replace him. the former head of the department of justice's criminal division now in line to become the next fbi director. so this room really is center of the political universe. there is a lot of media here. i'm stepping over some of the still cameras here to show you where the senators will be
seated along this row to ask these questions of james comey. people will be watching, not just live on network television, but through these doors is a line of people that have been waiting here for hours already. it stretches, this is a live shot here, it stretches around the corner. we don't see this every day here on capitol hill. we rarely see this, in fact. and it is a sign of just how many eyeballs will be in this hearing on this room today. matt, back to you. >> hallie, thank you very much. it's getting a lot of attention, not only here but in other parts of the world, especially in moscow. nbc's chief foreign correspondent richard engel is there for us. richard, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt. russia seems to be the one actor, not taking the stage today. we have spoken to analysts and officials close to the kremlin, and they effectively are presenting donald trump as a victim. as someone who is being attacked by the so-called deep state, by the cia, the fbi, the entornado
watched entrenched bureaucracy. so the president wants a better system, he kremlin has repeated denied that it tried to place sympathetic individuals in the white house close president, has denied that it tried to hack the elections, but as you have seen time and time again, whenever president hacking, even when he does it in sort of a coy way, i think that if, in se of satisfactions fact, russia may have manipulated the american political process, t rsians sho feel proud of. savannah? back to you. >> richard engel, thank you. we're joined now by two p chanc question james comey this morning. two members of the senate intelligence repuican senator j langford of oklahoma and joe manchin of west virginia. senators, it is nice to have a little bipartisan cooperation
this morning. you have both read the comey statement. if you take every fact as true, do you think what he alleges is inappropriate conduct by the president? for example, asking for loyalty oath? is that true or inappropriate? >> it is inappropriate. that's the first week of the presidency and it describes that trump is saying this to everybody, we know that from other cabinet officials. he made the same statement he's treating comey the same way. >> do you believe comey's statement then? >> it sounds like the president would say that to other cabinet officials. comey said it felt awkward but didn't get close to saying it was criminal. >> do you think it is inappropriate? >> i don't think anybody thinks it was inappropriate. it's something i wouldn't do. as a former executive, you know the dos and don'ts. you don't mess with your intelligence. you don't mess with the law enforcement or your security details. >> that is step one then. the next part is, according to comey, the president saying, i hope you can see clear to let this flynn matter go. up to interpretation what exactly he meant.
is that inappropriate? >> well, i would think that -- did mr. comey anticipate or think that might lead towards his dismissal? if he wasn't submissive? those types of things, what he felt at that time. because in his testimony, he said, he thought he had already been named for a ten-year term. and all of a sudden he was asked, do you really want this job? is this a job you want to seek? do you want to stay in this job? i understand that you wouldn't want to be there. so there's a lot of questions in his mind. and he thinks he was threatened. so that will be a question to be asked. >> but when you look at this, you look at these facts and we know how it ends in the fact that comey was fired. he was fired from a ten-year position. does this amount to obstruction of justice on the fact that is you see in this statement? >> a couple reasons to say no for that. comey comes back to say it was awkward and uncomfortable in february. it was february the 14th, in particular, in this conversation about michael flynn, to say, can we let this go? but he also, comey, at that same moment said he was not pressured
to stop the russia investigation. he was not pressured to back off anyone else. he felt like it was just about flynn, not about the rest. and comey states that in testimony. that's very different. and one of the things i want to ask is, what happened after that? any other conversations with white house officials? >> comey does have many statements in here that would in some way be beneficial to president trump. president trump says he feels vindicated by this statement. on the other hand, what comey describes is, asking others to leave the room and having comey stay behind. doesn't that suggest to you some kind of consciousness on the part of the president that maybe it was not appropriate behavior? >> i've been in a setting with the president before and he's asked people to leave to talk about different things we were going to talk about. this pertaining to west virginia, how to help west virginia, things of that sort. so i don't find that alarming whatsoever. i think you ask the question to james about do you think that's obstruction of justice? it's not whether we think it is obstruction of justice, it is whether comey thought it was obstruction of justice.
but he has to answer that. he was -- he had a ring-side seat, did he fill that? i'm not a lawyer, he's a lawyer. >> if you were a fbi director, perhaps it would matter if it felt like obstruction of justice. but now it's in the hands of congress. on these facts, does that rise to the level of obstruction of justice? >> i would tell you, he doesn't get close to that in his written statement. in seven pages he reaffirms, yes, i told the president three times you're not under investigation. never felt pressured to stop the russia investigation. never felt pressure, in fact, he articulates that the president said, you told me i'm not under investigation. if therein the president described in comey's statement, if there are satellite individuals part of the campaign, continue to the move forward. he continues comey to move forward on the investigation. but he seemed to say, clear my name at least because i'm not in this. >> do you agree we the president in a former tweet when he said the russia investigation is in his words a taxpayer-funded charade? >> no, i don't. this is about the president and
the presidency. i think we need to get all the facts. this is what this investigation really is. let's go after the facts as they are and resolve the fact issues and move on whenever cway it goes. >> the facts show russia got more involved and have done more than ever before. there's no doubt whatsoever on that. >> you're a republican, do you hope he tweets through the hearing? >> it doesn't matter whether i hope he's going to. >> at the end of the day, james and i said on this committee, we have to sign off on a report at the end of the day. but the facts have been presented to us. this is one committee that will sign off on the facts. and no one is above the law. no matter if the president or anybody else in his not going t sign off. it will be good to watch.s doc thank you very d areminder, we' special coverage of theightere . yst for us until

to go next. we do know that there's a key piece of evidence they haven't introduced yet. a 2005 deposition with cosby where he discusses buying a prescription quaalude and giving them to women he wanted to have sex with. >> stephanie gosk, thank you very much. take a look at this one. a graphic video that appears to show police officers kicking a man who was on fire. and it's triggering outrage this morning. this happened after a car chase on sunday in jersey city, new jersey. the car crashed into a utility pole and then burst into flames that also engulfed another car. prosecutors say the man in this video is the innocent driver of that second car. and an investigation underway, the mayor of new jersey of jersey city is calling for the officers to be fired. however, the police officers union says the officers were actually trying to put out the flames. the driver's family says he suffered severe burns and
fractured ribs. well, the search for a suspect is over this morning after a break-in at a medical supply store in logan, utah. store owners a arrived to find this mess, glass was shattered everywhere, but investigators concluded nothing was missing. the surveillance video revealed all. the intruder was actually a duck. it's not the first time the webbed bandit struck the office. the dentist office upstairs was also once the victim of fowl play. >> so a story that is funnier with your voice. we've got a lot for you today, including one of the reasons i lost my voice a little bit. we had such fun at the cmt awards last night. we'll talk about that right after this.

can always switch. if you wait later with more people and less inventory, you don't have options. >> misty, a lot of people are taking road trips, they want to rent a car. it seems so convenient at the airport to rent one, but that will be more costly. >> it is. so rent at a non-airport facility because the rate is likely going to be lower and you'll bypass the airport taxes which can be a lot. >> misty, thank you so much. we appreciate you coming to see us. we have more of the summer travel tips on the "today" app. coming up next, our girl siri daly is here with an ideal menu for father's day. but first, this is "today" on nbc.
