7:06 am
he talks about trump is a national disgrace and says the clinton campaign is trying to pin this on him. who does it help, who does it hurt? will it matter. >> it it solves a mystery as to why anyone isn't endorsed in this race. it's a human being's nightmare to have their most personal thoughts shared around the world. he's a human being. he wrote these things he thought in private and thought they would stay private. that sa respected figure in a political climate where there aren't too many of them. you can count them on both hands. so i think it will cut both of them a little bit. i think his critiques -- he's still a person widely respected by a broad swath of the middle of the country, which is -- we talk a lot in the squeaky wheels get the grease and usually on the far right and far left. the selection will be decided at this point by people whose minds are still hope. and to those people, colin powell has play. >> you know, he calls donald trump an international pariah.
7:07 am
e-mails he's got nothing but disdain and disgust for donald trump. but he does talk a lot about hillary clinton too. and one of the subjects, march of 2015 now. we're talking about he writes this "she doesn't look good," of hillary clinton. "she's working herself to death." questions from people like colin powell, people who are perhaps even partial to her, if you read the e-mails, about her health. >> and he says she doesn't look good on hd-tv. none of us do. but, be seen -- it will depend on which side you're standing, right? which side of the divide you stand on. if you're rudy guiliani and have been pressing this case for a long time, then you'll seize on to this and say, ha! running for president is a grind. it is grueling. you look tired because you are tired. but on the other hand, the comments about donald trump are some of the harshest yet.
7:08 am
a lot of disgust with the tone and tenor of his candidacy. and when you see what someone like colin powell said in private, where he didn't hold back, he called him a national disgrace. >> tough, tough words. >> nicole, you are not done. we have one more thing we want to talk to you about. stand by there. >> all right. that's right. the trump campaign is fighting back this morning after new york's attorney general revealed he's open to inquiry to trump's charitable foundation. hallie jackson has more on that. good morning. >> hi. good morning to you. donald trump's team insisting this new inquiry is purely political, as new york's ag looks into who trump's foundation donated to, and what that money went toward. donald trump's team touting his charity. >> this is a man who has given away tens of millions of dollars. >> donald trump has been incredibly generous over the course of his life. >> but today his philanthropy
7:09 am
post" raised questions about his foundation. the new york attorney general's office opening an inquiry, looking into what a source familiar with the probe calls "trumping transactions." this after the post reported several charities never received the money trump's foundation said it gave. and found $20,000 seems to have been spent on a six foot tall portrait of trump himself. th president obama. >> the other candidate foundation took money other people gave to his charity and then bought a six-foot-tall painting of himself. he had the taste not to go for the ten-foot version. >> reporter: the inquiry, led by new york's ag, erich schneider man. >> we have been looking into the trump foundation to make sure it's compliant with the laws that govern charities in new york. >> schneiderman, a democrat, has tangled with trump before, suing
7:10 am
ag, a partisan hack, adding, quote, this is nothing more than another left wing hit job designed to distract from crooked hillary clinton's disastrous week. trump's recent donations include $1 million to a veteran's group. but the post found he hasn't contributed to his own foundation since 2008. instead, using other people's money to make charitable gifts. >> before this may, before that million dollars he gave to veterans under a lot of media pressure, when was the last time a charity and how much did he give? and what was his history out of his own pocket? >> reporter: questions that could be answered if trump releases his tax returns. >> i give a lot of money to charity. i think i revealed over a period of years, i've given over $100 million to charity. >> reporter: and by the way, we should mention that our parent company, nbc universal, donated $500,000 to trump's foundation back in 2012. this morning, hillary clinton's
7:11 am
video. take a look. hitting trump on some of these questions. trump has already been forced to pay a penalty tax to the irs for a donation to a group associated with florida's attorney general. that was right around the time her office was considering, but did not pursue, an investigation into trump university. both she and trump have denied any wrongdoing. willie, savannah, back to you. >> thank you. let's bring in msnbc's chief legal correspondent, ari melbourne and with us as well. how does an inquiry proceed? >> a review of whether there were any laws in new york state broken regarding these charities. since 2008, this trump family foundation hasn't had a lot of trump or family. and that may be news and make voters take a second look whether this is a charity at all. >> the question is, is there a legal problem? to be clear, this attorney general's investigation would not be a criminal investigation.
7:12 am
what we know that anyone would be at risk of going to jail here. the question is whether these laws that governor charities in new york were violated and whether in some way either there was false accounting or this so-called nonprofit was actually being used for enough profitable purposes the hammer would come down. >> the trump campaign has said erich schneiderman is a hillary supporter, has endorsed hillary clinton, has gone after donald trump with a lawsuit on trump university and now going after th interest here? >> no conflict in the legal sense of the word. this is a very serious charge from the trump campaign last night. basically saying that this prosecutor is trying to do this for political purposes. if that were true, that itself would be a crime. the trump campaign hasn't put out any evidence that. we are eight weeks out from an election, it's understandable people are wondering what's going on here. no evidence that attorney general schneiderman is doing anything other than an investigation. >> that brings me nicely to
7:13 am
first of all, do you think that voters who are paying attention will care about this issue, this notion that trump, according to this reporting, is not putting his own money in the foundation, is taking money and then taking credit for donations? and in one case, spending this money that was supposed to be for charity on a portrait of himself? >> yeah -- >> how does that play? >> a portrait of yourself is a thing you need to book a shrink for that. i think this idea that his charity didn't do enough good is really -- to be so rich that you ha a wrap your brain around. and not a lot of people think you're bad if you'r good charit went astray. this is best used as a defensive weapon to guard the clinton camp against criticisms about their charity. >> the clinton foundation -- >> they're not -- >> that criticism has gotten legs. >> because of the interlay with the state department. which is a u.s. government entity. that's where i think she's been vulnerable. not the actual work of the actual charity.
7:14 am
liability because there were allegations that it was connected with some favors for pay by the u.s. government. i think this will become sort of a battle between two charities. you heard president obama frame it up pretty well saying hillary clinton's charity saves lives, donald trump's charity did what you just described, bought a very tall portrait of donald trump. >> we'll see if they use this on the trail. thank you. another high-profile cyberattack getting a lot of attention this morning. the confidential medical information of several star american athletes. here's nbc's national correspondent, miguel almaguer. >> reporter: the victims are some of team usa's top athletes. simone biles. serena and venus williams. and wnba stars. the world anti doping agency says its confidential medical
7:15 am
espionage group and the information made public. it happened one month after most russian athletes were banned from the olympic games after a widespread doping scandal. >> it's really a shame. and quite despicable, frankly, that a group of people would attack innocent athletes to divert attention away from the obvious state-run doping system in the state of russia. >>. >> the american athletes are firing back. simone biles, who has a medical exemption to take a substance after she was diagnosed with adhd, says on twitter, nothing to be ashamed. nothing i'm afraid to let people know. venus williams says she followed the rules. della done, i would like to thank the hackers for making the world aware i take a medication for a condition i've been diagnosed with. >> even your private information is no longer safe.
7:16 am
information was stolen by fancy bears, the same group tied to the recent hack of the democratic national committee. the russian government denies any involvement. this morning, the doping agency says the attacks targeting our athletes may not be over. for "today," miguel almaguer, nbc news. now to that disturbing video we showed you at the top of the show. a driver slamming his car into three police officers in phoenix, arizona. tamron is here with the latest on that story. this is so difficult to watch. authorities say that act was intentional. the three officers standing outside of a gas station when the driver steered directly at them. dramatic surveillance video released overnight shows the moment of a plan plowed his car into three police officers at a phoenix gas station. the force of the impact sending one of the officers flying into the air and through the store's window. another camera angle shows the driver pulling up to a gas pump.
7:17 am
accelerating, heading straight for the officers, including an eight-year veteran, a sergeant with more than 18 years experience. and a rookie who had just completed field training and was on his first official shift. >> our phoenix police officers were targeted. >> these officers could have easily been killed. and i thank god that we're not planning three funerals right now. >> reporter: the two officers struck by the vehicles sustained serious but nonlife threatening injuries. of the third officer was able to jump out of the way. >> unbelievable. our officer that hits glass gets back up and engages in the fight to take the suspect in custody. >> reporter: the suspect, 44-year-old mark payne, struggled with the officers before they were able to take him into custody. he's been charged with three counts of attempted first degree murder. payne was treated briefly at an area hospital. police say they do not yet know what motivated that vicious attack. it is unbelievable to see that. >> hard to watch. >> nonlife threatening. >> tough.
7:18 am
let's take a turn now. dylan watching the weather and a new storm to worry about. >> as of the 11:00 p.m. update last night, a tropical storm sitting off the coast of florida and georgia. it is bringing heavy rain to the southeast. take a look at jacksonville florida, yesterday. very gusty winds. an inch-and-a-half of much-needed rain yesterday. this is only the first tropical storm ever to form over florida itself. only about 2% of storms form over land. and that's what happed so it was a very interesting case. and now we have most of our heavy rain across northeastern georgia. we also have heavier rain moving into the charleston area. winds still at 40 miles per hour. and this storm, while it will weaken, is really not moving all that quickly. here you see by friday, 2:00 a.m., winds still up to 25 miles per hour. but it's just sitting across parts of georgia. so we are going to see the rain continue with flash flood watches in effect, because of the fact we could see some flash flooding.
7:19 am
much as 5 to 7 inches of rain. so that's an area we need to focus on for the rest of the week. that's a look at the weather across the country. ? there's no one road out there. no one surface... no one speed... no one way of driving on each and every road. but there is one car that can conquer them all. the mercedes-benz c-class. five driving modes let you customize the steering, shift points, and suspension to fit the mood you're in... and the road you're on. lease the c300 for $369 a month at your local mercedes-benz dealer. >> chris: good wednesday morning, everyone. a milder start to the day. a lot of sunshine to start the day, as well. we'll track a cool front in here this afternoon. that will provide scattered showers and storm, mainly between 3:00 and 7:00 p.m. they're hit-and-miss. a few containing gusty winds and brief downpours as that broken line does work on through it.
7:20 am
tomorrow. mid to upper 80s this afternoon. eye to the sky this afternoon. over the weekend, 50/50 split. saturday the pick and that's your latest forecast. >> dylan, thank you. coming up, is the oprah effect at weight watchers already fading? why the ceo is stepping down and what oprah herself is not doing about it. >> and matt in conversation with nfl commissioner, roger goodell. his message to parents about concussions in football and the new initiative to protect players.

7:32 am
weight watchers find a new leader after its vo suddenly resigned. hoda following this for us. good morning. >> a lot of news in this department. when she first teamed up with weight watchers, oprah shed some pounds and helped the kwp get new members. since then, a steady dekrin in membership. now the company is opening oprah can save the day once again. >> i have lost 26 pounds and i have eaten bread every single day. >> the billionaire media mogul bought 10% of the company stock, joined its board of directors as an adviser and helped the value of weight watchers soar $1.4 billion. >> i just love it. >> reporter: but nearly a year after oprah's involvement with weight watchers started, it's now her wallet experiencing a loss, shedding an estimated $117 million as shares of the company have come down 66% since she came on board.
7:33 am
is counting on oprah to it turn things around announcing board members will be actively involved in the search for a new ceo. and look forward to working with her or him in shaping the future of weight watchers. >> she clearly is our most famous board member. she is clearly their most famous customer. so if there is any, you know, magic left in that oprah brand, she's going to be the person that gets them over the hump. >> reporter: immediately after oprah got involved in weight watchers, enrollment in the weight loss program increased dramatically, but those numbers have dropped off and competition from fitness trackers and calorie counting apps have cut into the bottom line. >> many times you look into the mirror and don't recognize your own self. >> reporter: they are hoping a new ceo can attract new members and keep current ones. oprah and weight watchers
7:34 am
and hoping to regain lost revenue in the process. while oprah is one of the board members involved in the search for the new ceo, she is not being considered for the job. so you watch the stock do this thing. i think it was $7 when it started. it was up to $26. now it's back to $9 or 9 something. >> it's interesting. there is no question there was an oprah effect. >> absolutely. >> obviously a shot in the arm. and now we'll see how it all plays out. thank you. let's swing over to dylan in for al and weather. hey, dylan. >> could be the last real hot day we're going to see. >> i hope so. >> up around 90 degrees and then we get back into the 70s and stay that way for at least the next couple of weeks. we are looking at unseasonably warm temperatures from the southeast into the northeast to new york city, 89 degrees today. washington, d.c., 93. you go down to charlotte, atlanta, and temperatures around 90 degrees. likely close to records in d.c., philadelphia, baltimore, even up into boston, but i don't think
7:35 am
though, that will start working in as early as tomorrow. we drop down into the mid to upper 70s as we get into the weekend and mid 80s across the southeast. so we're seasonal and more comfortable and still very nice. >> chris: good wednesday morning, everyone. a milder start to the day. a lot of sunshine to start the day, as well. we'll track a cool front in here this afternoon. that will provide scattered showers and storm, mainly between 3:00 and 7:00 p.m. they're hit-and-miss. a few containing gusty winds and brief downprs they clear it out and cool it down again overnight tonight or tomorrow. mid to upper 80s this afternoon. eye to the sky this afternoon. over the weekend, 50/50 split. saturday the pic and that's your latest forecast. >> all right, dylan. thank you so much. coming up, a staged version of the beloved sitcom "family ties." how one of the big stars feels about that idea. and next, matt's exclusive interview with nfl commissioner,
7:36 am
the league has denied a connection between football and head injuries. that's right after this. if you have moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis, and you're talking to your doctor about your medication... this is humira. this is humira helping to relieve my pain and protect my joints from further damage. this is humira helping me go further. humira works for many adults. it targets and helps to block a specific source of inflammation that contributes to ra symptoms. including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened, as have blood, liver and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores.
7:37 am
talk to your rheumatologist. this is humira at work. gary, gary, gary... i am proud of you, my man. making simple, smart cash back choices... with quicksilver from capital one. you're earning unlimited 1.5% cash back on every purchase, everywhere. like on that new laptop. quicksilver keeps things simple, gary. and smart, like you!
7:38 am
o to your head, gary. what's in your wallet? ? my brother and i have always been rivals. we would dream about racing each other, ? we were born brothers. competition made us friends. wish bold in the 2017 camry.
7:39 am
? ? you didn't have to help me like you did, ? ? but you did, but you did. ? ? and i thank you. ? say thank you with merci - the thoughtful collection of individually wrapped european chocolates
7:40 am
? we're back at 7:40. in an open letter in this morning's "wall street journal." nfl commissioner roger goodell. the nfl will dedicate $100 million to medical research, player safety and developing new
7:41 am
goodell, exclusively, and ask him how quickly he believes this money will change the game. >> i think it will change the game immediately. we have invested significantly in the past to further research. but we have also not waited on research. we have made rule changes. we have made changes in our equipment. we have done things to improve the way the game is played. we have changed our protocols to make sure that we are can get care to our players at the earliest possible opportunity. so we're going to invest in science. some of that will take a few years to develop. but we think we're changing the game today, matt. >> i remember 2009, commissioner, you testified before congress. and it was a representative who talked to you and said that she compared the nfl to the tobacco industry. and she said where the tobacco industry denied the connection between cigarette smoking and
7:42 am
between the game and head injuries. >> well, i disagree entirely with that position. because of all of the work we have done. in fact, in 2009/2010, was the time we put that on our poster. it will sit in our locker room. and that poster says that if your brain injuries and repetitive brain contact is not properly managed, then that can lead to long-term health consequences. so i think we have been the leader in this area. we have been very c take to make our game safer. >> so let's talk about changes. i remember an example last season case keenum and the rams. and we all watched as he took a hit and went down and his head hit the turf, and he grabbed his head. and i think everybody watching said "he's got a concussion." and nothing happened. stayed in the game. and when you were watching that footage, what was your first reaction? >> that our protocol was
7:43 am
that case should have gotten medical treatment. and what we did is, we worked to try to evaluate our medical protocols and improve on them and make sure they're properly communicated to every medical personnel in the league. and we did that with the nfl players association. and in the off season, we just announced that -- a few weeks ago, we strengthened that so if anyone does violate our protocol on the team level, they are subject to discipline. >> did anyone get fired for , that? >> no. again, we watch the protocols, we make sure they're followed. it was a medical judgment. it's what we always want to rely on. but, no. but i think in the future, there's going to be discipline if we see protocol being broken. >> it's going to sound like a strange question. do the fans care about this? i mean, for all of the years that the data on concussions and ct and things like that has been mounting, and for all the years that there have been headlines
7:44 am
death of the nfl, the game continues to grow and the ratings on television continue to grow. it's a little hard to understand. do you think the fans care? >> yes. i very much so. and i hear from our fans on that. they care about our players. they care about them today. they care about them in the future. and they want to know that we're taking care of them. and we're doing the best we can to protect them while they're playing. and for the years after they get away from the game. >> some fans who have read the headlines, commissioner, are going to hear about this it this is as much about protecting players as it is protecting the image of the nfl. the brand of the nfl." how would you respond to that? >> matt, i've been in this game for 35 years. i've known players, i care about our players. i respect what they do on and off the field. some of them i've known for 30 years, when i worked for the jets as an intern. and they're still my friends. they're sitting with me at the game on sunday. so i care about these players. >> i did an interview with brett favre a while back. and he said he doesn't have a
