more than 50% say the hacked e-mails posted by wikileaks shows she has different motives in private than in public. vice president argued sunday clinton is being held to unfair expectations. >> i find myself choking up. everybody looks at me and say, he's a good father and a decent guy. she chokes up and says something, you know, for whatever reason that she is playing the woman, card, man. this is the way -- >> reporter: over the weekend a top house republican raised of a private e-mail server as secretary of state. the fbi gave congress more details about its investigation and congressman jason chaffetz sees evidence of a quid pro quo. he says the documents show under secretary of state patrick kennedy contacted a fbi official in 2016 to dispute the classification level on one of clinton's benghazi related e-mails which had just been marked secret.
7:11 am
fbi official asked kennedy about a longstanding request for additional fbi slot, u.s. missions overseas. the documents indicate kennedy offered a trade and lower classification level in the change for the fbi slots. in a statement the fbi says it looked into it and the classification of the e-mail was not changed and there was never a quid pro quo. the state department denies the quid pro qs well they have been very open about the fact t clinton's e-mails in the way they were classified. they didn't believe that the information was as sensitive as the fbi and intelligence officials did. from a political perspective, charlie, the higher the classification level, the worse it looked that clinton stored those e-mails on her private server for years. >> thanks, nancy. gerald seib of "wall street journal," pleased to have you back. >> thank you. >> what do you think the
7:12 am
campaigns at this point in time? >> i think to excite his base to the maximum extent possible and, in the process, try to drive down hillary clinton's vote and keep his base up and drive her swing voter support down. >> and -- policy? >> basically, that is right. i thinker strategy is a little harder to figure out right now, because she has kind of moved between going on the attack with donald trump, engaging with him on his term, and also trying to sort of like go positive and rise above, as she says. i think the interesting question i think he sticks with the -- i think she drives above that now and higher and positive or stick in the fight. >> is there anything in the wikileaks e-mails you find surprising or on damaging to her? >> i think surprising to her is the tone with the goldman sachs bankers.
7:13 am
in private is cozier with them. >> didn't want to come out at the time? >> yes. >> the "wall street journal" has hillary clinton up 11 points nationally. now a discussion about whether her team with expand the electoral map. do you expect they will fight in georgia, arizona, utah? >> well, they are going to fight in utah because it's the most bizarre state or the most republican state may go independent or democrats i think a real conversation in the campaign about whether georgia and arizona are worth fighting over. i think there is more of an inclination to fight in arizona but a temptation or at least try in georgia. g. has a big african-american population and if you could energize that vote for hillary clinton it might be within reach but georgia is the charlie brown football and looks tempting to democrats and pulled back at the end. >> given that donald trump is trying to suggest that the election is rigged, is there a thought that they need to win
7:14 am
findings in our poll even people who support hillary clinton are not particularly optimistic about hillary clinton victory. what the country would be like, whether it could be governed that way. i think winning big would at least help her create a bigger mandate if that is the way they want to think about it. having watched campaigns over the years campaigns are reluctant to count how largely the victory is going to be and they are happy to have a win at all and i don't think carried away with expanding >> do you expect any surprises? >> if you said we should not expect surprises this year, you would be wrong by every turn. thousands of more wikileaks documents. i don't expect there is something shocking and stunning in those but who really knows? i think the biggest question the way each of them choose to finish this out. is it scorch the earth for donald trump? probably. is it high for hillary clinton? i think we will find out on wednesday a lot more. >> thank you. the final presidential

in a neighborhood recently recaptured soldiers who didn't want to be identified took us into a basement of a ruined building. this is a factory? everywhere there were piles of parts to build a simple bomb. cooking gas canisters sawed in half were packed with explosives and mounted on crude tail fins. the result isn't pretty, but it's lethal. it's not filled with explosives, though, right? the rockets were ordinary piece of steel pipe. the syrian army, too, has improvised weapons like the by now infamous barrel bombs. but put crude weapons in the hand of poorly trained and overstretched fighting forces on both sides of this grinding war
7:19 am
definite station. here in aleppo taken the syrian army to advance about 800 yards to the white building over there and all around misery for civilians who are trapped in a war they didn't ask for and now have no power to end. and the fact that no promise of a cease-fire came out of the talks between the u.s. and russia this weekend is a further blow to people who have lost almost everything. from inside syria, thank you. the pacific northwest is cleaning up this morning from a series of damages storms. in oregon 80-mile-an-hour winds whipped the coast and homes were ripped across and knocked out power to thousands but the storms were not as bad as some forecasts had predicted. a famed black bear who walked on his hind legs is reportedly killed during a legal hunt.

ife is basketball. but that doesn't stop my afib from leaving me at a higher risk of stroke. that'd be devastating. i took warfarin for over 15 years until i learned more about once-daily xarelto... a latest generation blood thinner. then i made the switch. xarelto? significantly lowers the risk of stroke in people with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. it has similar effectiveness to warfarin. warfarin interferes with vitamin k and at least six blood clotting factors. xarelto? is selective targeting one critical factor ng function. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases fatal bleeding.
7:24 am
if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto. there's more to know. xarelto. psh psh lunch is ready! campbell's spider-man soups. made for real, real life.
