the couples finally got their marriage licenses from the clerks. >> i want to go hug my mom. >> reporter: davis's soldiers say she is a fighter. >> she will not resign. she cannot sacrifice her conscience. she is willing as dr. martin ther king jr. wrote, to pay the consequences of that decision. that's why she's here. >> reporter: davis is getting support from politicians in the race for the gop presidential nomination. mike huckabee, a former baptist minister is planning a rala and visit with davis in jail. >> this is the criminalization of christianity. what she did was follow the kentucky constitution. >> reporter: the aclu and the representatives say her continued choices are keeping her in jail. >> she chose not to comply with the law. for every other citizen in the country, you break the law, there are consequences and there
are consequences for government officials. >> reporter: controversial case that could go on indefinitely. and davis's attorneys are questioning if the licenses issued yesterday are valid since they don't contain her signature. the county attorney and attorneys for the couples assert they are valid. complex issues ethical and legal here in kentucky. peter. >> sarah, thank you. >> matt saber is the founder of liberty counsel and attorney for kim davis. thank you for being here. >> my pleasure. >> you said your client is not going to resign. she holds the jailhouse keys at this point. she won't resign. sht e could go back and simply not issue those licenses to same-sex couples ithe self. she won't do that. in some ways, that could be a win-win? why not take that option? >> because number one, she was
elected by the people for 27 years. they want her to serve. if they change their mind, that's up to them. she i doing a great job. she will return $1.5 million in savings to them. she will continue to serve the team people. she cannot sacrifice her conscience. she cannot allow the marriage license that conflicts with her christian beliefs. it cannot go out under her name directly or someone else doing it under her authority. what she does, whether a deputy clerk does it or she does it, it is under her authority, kim davis, the clerk of rowan county issuing a marriage license that directly collides with marriage of the union of a man and woman. all she is asking for is reasonable an accommodation. that is remove her name and thority title off the certificate.
it put it under the commonwealth kentucky for example. not under her name. >> she is not comfortable with that. thatcs her conscience. how is her imposing that on her staffers? ho cw is that not imposing on them? now they are forced to make the decision. do they disobey their boss or disobey the government? >> she has a great collegiality with her staff and they are long ligme friends. they were coerced by the judge with jail time to issue the licenses. that is understandable. she has nothing but respect for her staff. >> are you saying that is not her imposing her beliefs on them although five of the six said they are okay with it? >> if you had the president under his authority issue something directly, it is the president speaking. in this particular case, whether
it is her speaking or deputy clerk doing it, voluntarily or under coercion, it ih her speaking. it is her authority. it is her license. she is the elected official. they are not. the people put her there. it is her authority. >> mat, at this point how does this end? >> we don't know how it ends. that is part up to the judge and appellate court. there is so much due process violated by the judge. there was no notice for potential incarceration. the judge did not allow si tgnificant briefing. it was a pre-planned situation. all of the things set up with no notice to kim davis. there are lots of issues we will appeal. we are appealing. we are challenging this contempt order. we want to get her out of jail. she doesn't belong there. she is a prisoner of her religious freedom conscience. we call opinion the governor. he could act and resolve the situation with an executive
order and the legislature could convene and resolve this not just for kim davis, but all the clerks in kentucky. >> mat saver, thank you. to politics now and hillary clinton on the campaign trail this morning. just one day after offering a public apology of sorts about that e-mail controversy in an interview with nbc news. nbc's kelly o'donnell is in new hampshire with that. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, peter. the trail can be chaotic and busy place. clinton has gone from the interview in new york to puerto rico to make a campaign stop and now here today in new hampshire to shore up key parts of her democratic base. some of those voters are uneasy about the e-mail issue. to a degree, clinton is acknowledging what this costs her. >> our country. >> reporter: hillary clinton offers this apology. >> at the end of the day, i am sorry that this has been
nfusing to people and has raised a lot of questions and i take responsibility and it wasn't the best choice. >> reporter: clinton is paying a st eep political price for her decision to use a private e-mail server at her home instead of the government system while secretary of state. >> well, i certainly wish i made a different choice and i know why the american people have questions about it. >> reporter: in an interview with nbc's andrea mitchell, clinton defended her actions above board and acknowledging polls show damage to her trustworthiness. >> it doesn't make me feel good. i am very confident by the time this campaign has run its course, people will know that what i have been saying is accurate. >> reporter: often the target of donald trump, clinton rejected his blast your opponent style.
>> he is great at innuendo and conspiracy theories and really deafaming people. that's not what i want to do in my campaign. >> reporter: now trump has tripped himself up on foreign policy with an interview with hugh hewitt. >> are you familiar with general sulemani? >> yes. >> he runs the quds forces. >> yes. i think the kurds, by the way have been horribly mistreated. >> not the kurds. the quds forces. the bad guys. >> reporter: trump turned on the interviewer by phoning in his complaint to msnbc's "morning joe." >> i thought he said kurds. every question was do i know this one and that one. >> reporter: and that interview is well regarded in conservative circles.
in that very trump way, he came back saying he would know more about foreign policy than hugh hewitt by election day. here today in new hampshire, hillary clinton will meet with democratic women and organized labor. important on this labor day weekend. peter. >> kelly o'donnell, thank you very much. and andrea mitchell conducted that interview with hillary clinton on friday. andrea andrea, good morning. >> good morning, peter. >> you questioned her about the e-mail controversy and the take away was she was more contrite and no more jokes. does this mean the campaign needs to be more serious about the controversy? >> yes. this is clearly a reset. they are going forward. labor day is a good demarcation for them. they know it will not go away. the fbi investigation will continue. the monthly releases, court ordered, will continue. that does overshadow what they
are trying to do on the campaign. they are trying to adopt a different stone. you saw that in the interview. she was trying to explain she is willing to do. knowing this is an issue that has clouded the campaign. >> and andrea, hillary clinton didn't give any full explanation for why she set up the private e-mail server in the first place. you asked if anyone in the inner circle at the time questioned that decision or move. here was her response. >> you know, i was not thinking a lot when i got in. there was so much work to be done. we had so many problems around the world. i didn't really stop and think what kind of e-mail system will be there. >> it cases judgment questions. >> i don't think so. i think the facts are pretty clear that we had a lot of hard work and hard choices to make in those four years.
>> the clinton campaign chairman acknowledged headwinds since the story broke. how damaging has it been? >> they believe they can get their arms around it. there was nothing illegal. they are saying they didn't know what the fbi is going to end up doing. it's clearly been damaging. it has created a headwind. a lot of what he called noise out there. i think they are trying to adopt a different tone. you saw that in the interview. she is saying she is sorry it caused confusion. she did not directly apologize. that is one way i would state it. and when i asked if she was too lawyerly. she came back and said i'm very careful about my choices. in a clear contrast to donald trump, we were discussing at that moment in the interview, when you are running to be president of the united states, you have to be careful about what you say.
she is trying to show herself to be more of a potential leader than some of the owe pponents opponents. >> hillary clinton will testify about the benghazi attacks. this is sure to come up again. andrea mitchell, thank you very much. terrific interview. you can watch "andrea mitchell reports" every day on msnbc. heading overseas now. a glimmer of hope for migrants stopped in hungary. many were finally able to make it to austria. the trip they are desperate to make. nbc's foreign correspondent richard engel is on the border of austria. good morning, richard. >> reporter: good morning, erica. this has created congestion at the hungarian border with austria. buss have begun to cross into
austria bringing migrants trapped in this country. it is creating expectations. they made it. they won. buses took thousands of migrants from hungary into austria this morning. a simple border crossing, but this was a hard-fought victory which they had to earn one step at a time. from there, many were quickly loaded on to trains for vienna. friday, the migrants and refugees, mostly from syria, finally got fed up and hungry and decided to head for the austrian border on foot. 100 miles away. the hungarian government had been giving them a hard time. corralling them into camps and sometimes beating them. one lost his leg in an air strike. like many, he was angry and confused why the hungarian
government was hassling. he said we bought train tickets and they won't let us travel. with many following in step, babies in the sun, two in a stroller, it became embarrassing for the hungarian government, which finally gave the migrants what they wanted. passage out of the country so they can head further north and west to wealthier parts of europe. erica, this crisis is in no way over. the march yesterday was so powerful and embarrassing to hungary, the government relented and sent the buses. today, more people are on the march. more migrants and refugees decided to give it a shot. the hungarian government said what happened is a one-time deal. it doesn't want to get into the business of ferrying people through the country. expectations have been raised. people back on the streets. we will see what happens today.
>> there is much more attention from around the world. richard engel, thanks. another story closer to home. annual pillow fight at west point. sheinelle. >> this is getting a lot of attention this annual summer ritual. it has taken a brutal turn. the military academy acknowledges an august pillow fight meant to let off steam, left cadets battered. pillows stuffed with hard objects injuried 40. one knocked unconscious. officials regret the injuries, but so far no one has been punished and the academy has no plans to end the tradition. a multistate recall underway for salmonella links ed to imported cucumbers. the san diego distribute

military, your head will spin. obviously i'm not meeting these people. as joe biden says he is torn about running for president. >> the most relevant factor in my decision is if my family and i have the emotional energy to run. the staffer who helped set up hillary clinton's e-mail server saying he will plead the fifth before congress. >> he called his decision understandable and disappointed. overseas, the migrant crisis in europe taking center stage as a picture of a little boy who drowned touches hearts. >> he just seen the bodies of his two drowned sons. i tried to catch my children, but it was hopeless. we are not issuing marriage licenses today. kentucky clerk kim davis refusing to issue marriage

united states have been hunting for guzman. also known as el chapo. >> he is one of the powerful. >> reporter: he escaped his jail cell in mexico using a multimillion dollar tunnel. slipping into the shower through the tunnel and carried off with a motorcycle. then a few days ago, his son posted this picture on twitter. the account is not verified by nbc news. that is alfredo in the middle. and partially obscured, a man with a mustache who could be el chapo. >> i saw the photograph. it looks like guzman. i don't think that anybody can say it's him with any great certainty. >> reporter: if the picture is authentic, it may hold a major clue. down at the bottom, a locater
identified that the shot was taken in costa rica. did his son leave the location feature on identifying his father's whereabouts? >> i suspect this was a fraud. el chapo is not going to be in costa rica sitting in a public restaurant. >> reporter: if guzman were caught outside mexico, he could be extradited to the u.s. >> unless he has a death wish, i don't think he would be leaving that mexico border anytime soon. >> to add to the confusion, there is a town in mexico called costarica. >> sheinelle, thanks. we will head outside to get a check of the weather with dylan.

serena williams will be one of only four women to ever win the calendar year grand slam. the match was by no means easy. she even admits the pressure is on. serena williams putting an exclamation point on her latest win. defeating bethany mattek-sands after a tough start. >> serena rarely loses a set to an american at the u.s. open. >> bethany played really well. i had to do things to adapt to her game. i finally was able to get rhythm going to the end of the second. >> reporter: williams turned it around. now the world number one is one win closer to making history. winning the australian, french, wimbledon in a single calendar year.
only steffi graf and maureen connelly have done it before. williams is just four wins away from joining that elite group. williams is no stranger to winning. she has won 36 major titles, including twice what is called a serena slam. four consecutive majors, just not in the same calendar year. the 33-year-old recently told tamron hall she is not trying to get caught up in the moment. >> after i won the serena slam 2.0. >> you heard that. >> you can't get farther than that. obviously it can. i don't think the calendar defines anything in my career. >> reporter: but crowds want to see it. they have been packing into arthur ashe stadium for a glimpse at williams as she tries for the sport's biggest feat. >> the cherry on the greatest career. >> she takes on madison keys on sunday. her toughest competition could

geico motorcycle, great rates for great rides. i sure had a lot on my mind when i got out of the hospital after a dvt blood clot. what about my family? my li'l buddy? and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital wbut i wondered if this was the ght treatment for me. then my doctor told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. pnot only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots, t but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding v than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... turned around my thinking. pdon't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. peliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. pdon't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. pif you had a spinal injection while on eliquis pcall your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. pwhile taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... pand it may take longer than
usual for bleeding to stop. pseek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. peliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. ptell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. v eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. v plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you.
