7:02 am
controversies tied to russia facing donald trump and his oldest son. we start with national correspondent peter alexander at the white house this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. with president trump facing fierce new criticism in the wake of his meeting with vladimir putin, there are indications that some within his campaign, including his oldest scan, donald trump jr., were willing to accept potentially damaging information about hillary clinton from a russian lawyer tied to the kremlin. this morning, revealing new details about why the president's son, son-in-law and his then-campaign chairman met privately at june 16 with a russian lawyer. donald trump jr. now acknowledges he was promised information about hillary clinton that might be helpful to his father's campaign, before agreeing to the meeting just after trump clinched the information. mr. trump's son says, an acquaintance suggested the meeting. where he was told, quote, that
7:03 am
individuals connected to russia were funding the democratic national committee and supporting ms. clinton. but trump further states that the russian lawyer's comments were vague, ambiguous and made no sense. and she had no meaningful information. she did talk about russian adoptions. the president's son and his outside legal counsel said donald trump had no naj of the meeting. back at the white house, at the g20 summit, where his daughter sat in for him at the main table, stirring up controversy. i strongly pressed president putin twice about the russian meddling in the election. his chief of staff trying to sharpen the point. >> the president absolutely did not believe the denial of president putin. >> reporter: president trump adding he wants to move beyond
7:04 am
the election interference controversy, highlighting a bold proposed partnership already drawing fire. putin and ities cussed forming a cyber security unit so that election hacking and many things will be guarded. several top republicans expressing disbelief. >> it's not the dumbest idea but it's pretty close. >> vladimir putin could be enormous assistance in that effort since he's doing the hacking. >> reporter: rubio hacking it, partnering with putin on a suber security unit is akin to partnering with assad on a chemical weapons unit. >> this is about having capabilities to make sure we both fight cyber together, which i think is a significant accomplishment for president trump. >> reporter: but 13 hours after the president boasted about it, he quickly dismissed the whole thing. the fact that putin and i discussed a cyber security unit doesn't mean i think it can ha. the president added, it can't. but a cease-fire can and did.
7:05 am
he was referring to syria. back to donald trump jr. one important note is how this story has changed over time. his story has changed over time. when originally approached in march, he denied any meeting occurred. on saturday, he acknowledged it was one, about russian adopti adoptions. 24 hours later, he claims he was promised dirt on hillary clinton. >> thank you, peter alexander. jeremy bash, nbc security analyst. let's pick up where peter just left off. donald trump jr. and the peting with a lawyer that some say has links to the kremlin. how devastating would that be? >> it's devastating they never met with any russian and had no intent to collude with russian operatives. and campaigns often times look for opposition research. but here, we're talking about a foreign adversary government working with a u.s. presidentia.
7:06 am
>> the idea that you would have paul manafort and donald trump jr. with an attorney in a room, does that smell right to you? >> it doesn't. and the meeting was billed by donald jr. to his colleagues on the campaign, to the campaign ja chairman, as a way to affect the outcome of the election. this is what everything people have been looking for. this is not only devastating to the narrative. i think it's potentially incriminating. >> now, we have conflicting stories about how hard the president pressed putin about the election meddling. and the russians say one thing. and now, secretary of state rex tillerson said he didn't think that the president pushed him that hard. >> the secretary of state's narrative was that the president checked the box. he walked into the room and
7:07 am
said, i have to raise this issue, so, i will. the president is saying i pressed him hard. but the russians say the president accept eed putin's denial and wants to move on. it seems like the president missed an opportunity to really push the russian leader on this. >> there's conflicting versions about what came out of the putin/trump meeting. how would you characterize that much-anticipated face-to-face? >> i think it was a missed opportunity for the president. he could have pressed him on a number of issues. on cryou ukraine and syria. >> what about the motion that the u.s. and russia will team up to go after hacking? >> that's laughable. the russians are the culprit here. thanks goodness this appears to be the shortest-lived presidential initiative history.
7:08 am
it's back to business after the holiday break. and the health care battle will be front and center once again. kristen welker has more on that. good morning. >> reporter: hi, craig. good morning to you. republicans are returning from their july fourth recess to a harsh reality. opposition has grown to the health care bill. now, a frenzy to try the fix it to get it over the finish line. and the president weighing in this morning in a tweet, writing, i cannot imagine that congress would dare to leave washington without a beautiful, new health care bill fully approved and ready to go. the stakes couldn't be higher this morning, as congress returns with one goal, repeal and replace obamacare. this, after republicans faced growing outrage from constituents. >> health care for all. >> reporter: with protests and tense town halls during the recess. the senate's current plan scales back many of obamacare's tax credits and ends its medicate expansion. as many as 22 people could lose
7:09 am
coverage. a growing number of republicans have opposed the bill, with some openly saying it's going nowhere. >> in my view, it's probably going to be dead. >> reporter: majority leader, mitch mcconnell, push backed a vote, with changes to the bill. with a reality check to his party, pass the bill or work with democrats. >> if my said is unable to agree on an adequate replacement, some kind of action, with regard to the private health insurance market must occur. >> reporter: but he's facing pressure from the right and president trump, who tweeted, for years, even as a civilian, i listened as republicans pushed the repeal and replace of obama care. now, they have a chance. >> they will get a repeal and replace bill done. >> reporter: the president also floating the idea that if the senate can't pass the current bill, they should immediately repeal and then replace at a later date.
7:10 am
but that's the exact opposite of what mr. trump said a few months ago. and some congressional republicans tell nbc news, that idea is a nonstarter. now, the gop is struggling to come up with alternatives. senator ted cruz is proposing an ameantment that could bif insurance companies more flexibility. but that is being criticized by those who say it could limit coverage. and chuck grassley of iowa writing 52 republican senators should be ashamed that we have not passed health reform by now. we won't be ashamed. we'll go from majority to minority. >> kristen, thank you. a lot more going on, including wildfires in california that have forced nearly 8,000 people out of their homes. the governor, jerry brown, has declared an emergency for brute county. ten buildings have been destroyed and 5,400 are

7:13 am
june, likening it to a fraternity get together. >> slapping each other's back, kidding and joking. that was distressing to the piazzas. >> reporter: the charges range from evidence tampering to involuntary manslaughter. >> joseph ems is charged with reckless endangerment. >> did they participate in back-slapping. quite the contrary. >> reporter: luke is charged with aggravated assault. >> with a charges of my client, they are factually and legally unfounded. unjustified, and unwarranted. >> reporter: the defendants have pleaded not guilty. several of their attorneys say there's more of this story to be told. and they plan to cross-examine the witnesses at this hearing, which is expected to last through tomorrow. >> gabe gutierrez at the courthouse. thank you, gabe. many are calling it the

7:42 am
it, until now. the air national guard protecting the skies and giving us rare access. >> when the president moves around, the federal aviation administration puts a temporary flight restriction in place and we defend it. >> reporter: what happens if an unidentified aircraft flies into the no-fly zone, right into the president of the united states. we set up a demo with this cessna and the air national guard. i'm going to be inside this cessna and we're going rogue. we're going to fly into that no-fly zone and see how the air national guard does it. they scramble the fighter jets near us and how they get us down to the ground and safe. we barrel down the runway. >> takeoff, we're off. >> reporter: flying for miles and miles. until -- we just asked the no-fly zone. our pilots aren't talking to air traffic control, ignoring their calls to reach them. that triggers an alarm at the
7:43 am
air national guard base. these fighter pilots scrambling to their jets. they're on alert and ready to take action 24 hours a day. today, racing to their f-16s. suiting up, climbing onboard and rushing to the runway. taking off to intercept our rogue cessna. reaching the target in just minutes. this is the view from the f-16. that's my cessna right there. whoa. you can actually hear -- i don't know if you can hear it on camera, you can hear that fighter jet coming by. there's no way you tonight hear this or notice it. coming up on the left side of our plane. that's as intimidating as you think it would be. that's the fighter jet on our wing. another fighter jet swooping in on the right. you have been intercepted. if you hear this call, identify yourself. >> reporter: we're a rogue aircraft. we're not going to respond at all and see what the fighter jet does. the fighter right on our wing.
7:44 am
scanning us inside. what's he trying to do? >> trying to figure out who we are, what's inside and what we're up to. >> reporter: and make radio contact and tell us to do what? follow him? >> that's correct. >> reporter: the fiegers want to escort us out of the area. the f-16 makes a bold move. swooping in right there. he's crossing right in front of us. the f-16 crosses right in front, just feet from us. hard to miss and that's the point. that's an aggressive maneuver. >> he's trying to get our attention. >> reporter: this is restricted air space right above the president's vacation home. >> are you ordered to turn to the northwest. >> reporter: the fighter jet giving us one last morning, turning away, hoping we follow. if after all of this, the plane won't leave the air space, will you shoot them down?
7:45 am
