>> i'm putting the people on notice that are coming here from syria, if i win, if i win, they're going back. they're going back. i'm telling you. they're going back. >> reporter: right now, the multiple risks in syrian air space include this. what does the u.s. do if the russian air force, and it knows beforehand, is planning to target rebels supported by america? does the u.s. get involved? this has a chance to get intense very quickly. >> thank you. we are also learning that russian-linked hackers tried at least five times to access hillary clinton's private e-mail account while serving as secretary of state. that's one of the headlines to come out of the latest document dump by the state department. kristin welker has more on that. >> reporter: good morning. clinton's campaign stop comes as
7:05 am
$68 million last quarter. that's a few million more than bernie sanders. important to point out, overall, she has outpaced him by a margin of 2:1. meanwhile this morning, there are new questions about the security of her private e-mail server when she was secretary of state. as hilary lary clinton tries to fire up her base in boston, she faces new cite scrutiny. in 2011, clinton was sent several e-mails disguised as speeding tickets, which instructed her to print out the ticket. according to the associated press, security experts say, those e-mails contained so-called mall so-call ed mall ware that can be traced back to servers in russia. her campaign said, we have no evidence to suggest she replied to be e-mail or opened the attachment. as we've said before, there is no evidence that the system was ever breached.
7:06 am
continued e-mail disclosures are taking a toll. >> it's like a drip, drip, drip. >> reporter: the new e-mails are part of 6,000 pages from 2010 to 2011 released by the state department wednesday under court order. in one e-mail, a top aide expresses frustrations with the antiquated e-mail system. hesitant to raise the issue because it might encourage hackers. an article is forwarded about the 2010 mid-term elections. clinton said, i gave to bill, trying to influence trat strategy. this comes as kevin mccarthy suggested the investigation into benghazi is political. >> everybody thought hillary clinton was unbeatable, right? we put together a benghazi special committee, a select committee. what are her numbers today? >> reporter: in an interview with the reverend al sharpton, clinton fired back. >> i think they've showed their
7:07 am
hand. they're worried about running against me so they want to keep knocking me down. >> reporter: as for the newly released e-mails, 215 have been upgraded to classified. the state department released four more batches of her e-mails in the coming months, a reminder this controversy isn't going away soon. >> thanks very much. next monday, we'll have a live interview with secretary clinton, as she also answers questions during a town hall meeting in new hampshire. on the republican side, mitt rotomney is now weighing in on the current race. listen. >> i will support the republican nominee. i don't think it's going to be donald trump. my party has historically nominated someone who is a mainstream conservative. >> with 122 days left until the iowa caucuses, the race for donors is heating up. the third quarter fundraising deadline ended at midnight. jeb bush is expected to add
7:08 am
$120 million campaign chest. that's head and shoulders above the rest of the field. governor bush joins us now. nice to see you. good morning. >> good to be with you. >> i want to ask you about syria. days after meeting face to face with our president, vladimir putin ordered these air strikes in syria, targeted not against isis, as we believe, but against rebels fighting president assad. what would president jeb bush do this morning to let vladimir putin know that is unacceptoble? >> we should reengage in syria, for starters, and make sure thnat, beginning perhaps with part of syria, but we should have a no fly zone. there should be zero tolerance for assad using barrel bombs to destroy innocent life. last night at a town hall meeting, i interacted with nora, providing support for a dozen of her family members who have left. these are christian syrians who will be executed if they stay.
7:09 am
putin fwnm bombing the rebels? >>e if we pull back, if we don't have a strategy, he fills the void. we need a stra gy, and it'll create some form of deterrence. we need to reengage with our european allies. this is outrageous, to attack the syrian free army instead of attacking isis, to support and prop up assad. it'll create more chaos and death in syria. >> let me talk about polling.tlthey're not perfect but they give us a snapshot of where a race is at a particular moment. your polling is not good. you entered the race and had 23% of support in april. now, you're doing to 7%. what's happening in? >> well, 23% was an aberration. nevertheless, we're working for the long haul. we've got a great campaign organization. i'm campaigning hard. we're talking about leadership and the need to fix complex things. i'm the candidate tha gus unveiling policy initiativ, that gives people a sense that we can fix these things. i'm confident i'm
7:10 am
going to be the republican nominee. >> despnte wsat i said about the money you raised in this quarter, the wall street journal quoted sources inside the party as saying your donors are getting nervous. they're worried you might not be the place for them to put their money. a former senior aide to presidengat obama said, if jeb's last name was walker, we'd be out of the race. >> i would like to have him be a supporter of mine, but he's a liberal democrat. we're on the right track. we have a national campaign. i nghave a policy shot that's great. i'm campaigning hard. i think if you ask me in december ohere we stand when it matters, i will be a contender for sure. >> couple of questions about the frontrunner, donald trump. first, his comments on the syrian refugees overnight. saying if he wins, those who come to this country from syria are going back. what's your respons to that? >> it's a horrible thing. he said he supported putin's activity in syria, and ssia is worth supporting,
7:11 am
ompared to isis. i think we need to have a rategy to deal with both of the evil forces. the idea that you would send back refugees, when in american history has that happened? we have to stand for certain values. mr. trump either doesn't have a sense of history about american values or doesn't care about them. either way, it's wrong. >> he talks a lot about you on the campa n trail, not usually in glowing terms. are his comments having an affect on you and your campaign? >> not at all. in fact, i think it's a great way to compare and contrast. look, i have a proven record of leadership. i have 32 years in the private sector, not as grandiose as his, but building a successful business from the ground up. mymi record is one eople should have confidence, that i can sit rehind the big desk and make the big decisions. >> clearly, your resume and pe'sgree are perfect for the job of president. you come from a family with a long history of publi service. your dad was president.
7:12 am
you were a successor governor in an important state, florida. you're fluent in spanish. after deliberating for a long time, you decide to get in the race right now. i don't mean to be funny about this. after several months in the race, you're losing in the polls to the host of "celebrity apprentice." how do you g your arms around that? an >> doesn't matter to me in october. when we get closer to february, people want to know, does he care about me? does he have ideas to lift me ? dog es he have the leadership skills to fix these things 3-? at's how it works in politics. in october of eight years ago, john mccain was by himself in an atlanta airport. i was th e, as well. i gave him a hug. tat's going on, man? he had no support. he won the nomination because he had great ideas, and he showed his heart. >> by the way, there's more to do, nald trump's resume than that show, but it's ironic this established candidate comes
7:13 am
seems voters want anything but an established candidate. >> i'm not an established candidate as it relates to d.c. i was a disrupter in florida, and i'll be a disrupter in washington, d.c., as well. the fact that i have experience in governing successfully in a swing state should be a virtue, not a vice. >> says you have low energy, low energy. do you have the passion, governor bush, to fight -- >> matt, you need to get out of here and follow me. come with me to see the town hall meeting i had last night, for example, in front of 250 people. yo gu'll see i have the passion , and energy. i'm working 16 hours a day. i love it. i'm connecting with people, and i'm going to win. >> governor jeb bush, i appreciate you coming in this morning. >> absolutely. thank you. turn to natalie for a developing story out of afghanistan. >> big news in afghanistan. officials there re saying government troops have recaptured much of the northern city of kunduz and forced

7:15 am
when a brown bear calls shotgun, probably best to give it to him. dashcam video out of russia. you'll be shaking your head. you can see the bear sitting in the backseat of the car. apparently, it seems to be playfully biting the hand of the person sitting in front of him, in the passenger seat. russian police say they're not going to cite the driver because the bear had a seat belt on. it wasn't breaking any laws, although lots of things could go wrong there. >> i like the way you said, playfully biting the hand, unless it's your hand and you're not sure it's playfully. >> too big, too, the bear. >> natalie, thank you so much. mr. roker, busy morning for you. >> we have even flooding to talk about. active ongoing breaking news situation. this is in north carolina. i-85, parts of i-85 closed. we have a report of one fatality because of somebody driving into high water. this is a very, very volatile situation. we'll continue to track this.

7:37 am
back now at 7:42 with our series, the hacking of america. today is the deadline for retailers to begin setting the new credit cards that feature the embedded security chips. >> millions of americans have yet to receive them. most stores say they're not ready. nbc's tom costello has been looking into all of this. he's at a walmart in virginia this morning. hi, tom. >> reporter: good morning. a lot of people have received these credit cards in the mail with a computer chip embedded on the face, wondering why. as you mentioned, the deadline is today. retailers must have the cdit cardeaders in place, or they will bear the cost of credit card fraud.
7:38 am
walmart says all its stores are ready. we're used to swiping our card with the magnetic strip. instead, you will insert your card in the bottom, with the chip up. it will take about ten seconds or so. as opposed to a quick swipe, it'll take a few seconds longer. a lot of people have a lot of questions. we thought we'd go through them one by one. question one, why are the banks rolling out the new cards? it's part of a massive upgrade against credit card trade that last year cost more than $8 billion in the u.s. on the face of each new credit card, a computer chip. each transaction generates a unique code that can't be replicated. it makes stealing your credit card information almost useless. question two, will i be required to enter a pin code when i use the card? no. while banks in europe and canada require pin codes with the cards, in the u.s., you'll sign your receipt like you have for years. experts say that's a mistake. the u.s. should also require pin codes. >> they're taking a half step toward the technology known as
7:39 am
chip and signature. the pin is a critical element of security, proven to reduce fraud in europe. >> reporter: what should doi if i haven't received a new chip card? don't worry. it should arrive by the end of the year. meanwhile, you can still use your existing credit card with the magnetic strip. you can always contact your bank about when the new card might arrive. question four, if my credit card details are stolen, who pays? if your card is compromised at a retailer that hasn't upgraded its systems, the retailer is responsible. otherwise, the bank will bear the cost. many retailers haven't yet upgraded. question five, what should i expect at the checkout stand? you'll insert your card for 10 to 20 seconds, rather than slide it. that has retailers concerned. >> the holiday shopping season is almost upon us, and retailers are worried that this is going to cause longer lines. it might because these
7:40 am
bit longer to do. >> reporter: 10 seconds, again, is on average. listen, one important fact, if you put your card in, don't forget to pull it out, right? instead of swiping it, when you keep it in your hand, you put it in there. there's concern people may leave their cards. how will this change or impact your atm experience? should not affect it at all. use your atm, debt it card. they don't have to change for years. neither do gas stations. >> what about online shopping? >> reporter: you'll have the same process. you'll type in your credit card number. one concern here is that if this is becoming more difficult for criminals to steal your credit card information at a checkpoint, at a cash register, they might migrate to online cyber crime. it's always about, you know, the cyber criminals might be a half a step ahead of everybody else. it's a constant battle. >> it is indeed.
7:41 am
>> really good information though, tom. thank you very much. coming up, if you won an academy award, where would you keep it? >> right here. >> the surprising places where oscar resides. kicking off our celebration of breast cancer that pain right here, the bloating, diarrhea; i've dealt with it for years. all you can think about is where is the closest bathroom and how can i avoid embarrassing myself? a gastroenterologist told me that my symptoms were irritable bowel syndrome
