7:05 am
matt and katie. >> tammy, thank you very much. you have your hands full. >> we have three big storms and they're not close to being wrapped up. we have light snow in the northeast and new england. you can see the system is really starting to fire up. we have winter weather advisories, warnings, and watches for 32 states, 73 million people literally from coast to coast. so we've got the double-barrelled system. it's going to be moving fairly quickly friday to saturday. the heaviest snow begins overnight tonight into the north in the mid atlantic states and the southeast. the snow will mix with sleet and rain. ice is going to be a problem. we're talking about anywhere from a tenth of an inch to some places a quarter of an inch. that will make a big problem for air travel and for road travel. snowfall amounts through saturday night norfolk could see 6 to 12 inches of snow. raleigh 6-to 8. 4 to 8 in charlotte. atlanta could pick up 1
7:06 am
inches of snow. nantucket almost to a foot. atlantic city 3 to 6. and the lake effect snow will be a big problem, as well. we have the atmosphere river of moisture. heavy rain will continue to fall north of i 80. this is once in five to ten years. south of i-80 once every ten to 20 years. some areas of the foothills could see 20 inches of rain. that's right. so flooding is going to be a big problem going into monday. >> good weekend to stay inside. >> sure is. we'll check in with you a lot this morning, al. thank you. now to "today's" show down at trump tower between the president-elect and top intelligence officials. mr. trump is being briefed on russia's infected hacks during the election. one day after president obama received a report. and this morning we have new information on what it contains. nbc's kristen welker has the latest. good morning. >> reporter: katie, good morning to you.
7:07 am
after details leaked about that intelligence report making the case that russia tried to interfere in the u.s. elections. that causing the president-elect to lash out at the intelligence community once again. all setting the stage for what could be a day of fireworks here at trump tower. in a few hours president-elect will come face to face with the heads of the fbi, cia, that's a and director of national intelligence. the same officials he spent weeks disparages. they'll have a chance to push back. a day after james clapper took his case to congress. >> you'll be challenged tomorrow by the president-elect. are you okay with being challenged? >> absolutely. >> reporter: a tense backdrop escalading amid new details about what is in the intelligence report. a senior u.s. intelligence official telling nbc news that intercepts picked up senior russian officials celebrating
7:08 am
according to a source, the u.s. has also identified russian hackers who turned over stolen democratic material to wikileaks. donald trump called himself a fan of the intel community quickly changed his tune and lashed out. so how and why are they sure about hacking? what is going on? this comes with the intelligence community and some members of congress presenting a united front. >> every american should be alarmed by russia's attack on our nation. >> reporter: senator john mccain calling russia's move an act of war. director clapper firing back. >> i think there's a difference between skepticism and disparagement. >> reporter: adding some fuel, former cia director has been advising trump announced he's no longer serving in that capacity. the former cia director is
7:09 am
insisting his announcement wasn't out of protest but clarify he hasn't advised trump for awhile. >> i didn't want to fly under false colors. i'm not functioning as an advisor anymore. >> reporter: they asked politically appointed ambassadors to leave their post by inauguration day. standard practice but according to the "new york times" they're raising eye brows by not giving a small grace period. among the debate, the current vice president offering strong words to the in coming commander in chief. >> grow up. time to be an adult. you're president. you have to do something. >> reporter: and this morning a possible shift on a major campaign promise after vowing that mexico will pay for a border wall. a top transition official said they're looking into the possibility of having congress pay to jump start construction. the idea is that mexico would eventually pay back the u.s. that's something that trump himself is
7:10 am
the dishonest media does not report that any money spent on building the great wall for sake of speed will be paid back by mexico later! still, the high stakes intelligence briefing is number one here. >> kristen welker, thank you. how is it going to play out inside the meeting at trump tower down the street? we sat down with former cia director leon panetta to get his take. we started with the new reports that russian hacking goes as far back as 2008. >> there's evidence now that russia has been deliberately hacking our country and trying, in particular, to interfere with the election process in this country. that is a serious attack on united states of america. for that reason, it's important we respond. >> secretary
7:11 am
and the cia, you were part of a lot of briefings at a high level. let me pick your brain. let me use your wisdom. take me inside that room as these high-level intelligence officials brief trump. >> my experience is that it's going to be a very serious presentation of the evidence they have. they'll be professional. they'll try to present the facts they have. i think these are the most professional people i've dealt with in the intelligence community and i think they'll do a good job. >> when you look at the people who are going to be in attendance at trump tower, the director of national intelligence, the cia director, the fbi director, and the head of the national security agency. this is the highest level of intelligence in this country. how much of an eye-opening experience do you think this briefing is going to be for president-elect trump? >> when he sits down with our in
7:12 am
what they have to say, i think it's going to realize that this is a very important issue that must be dealt with seriously. he's going to find that, you know, it's easy to tweet about reactions to all kinds of issues. but to seriously deal with our national security and the threats to our country, is the business that ought to be done in the confines of the oval office. >> have you ever seen a dynamic like this where an incoming president or a sitting president has expressed such an amount of distrust for the intention -- intelligence community? >> i've been in public service for over 50 years. i've never seen anything like this in my lifetime. the fact that the president-elect is tweeting on this issue and taking it to the
7:13 am
undermining the credibility of the very intelligence agencies that have to provide information to him in order for him to be president of the united states, this is just unheard of and unprecedented. and i -- you know, i think we have to be concerned about this. this is not the kind of bickering that ought to be going on in public. >> let me talk about the tweeting that you just referenced. in is a tweet from trump in regard to the briefing. he said the intelligence briefing on so-called russian hacking was delayed until friday. perhaps more time needed to build the case. very strange. you don't have to read much between the lines to understand that he is alleging, in some way, that these intelligence officials are cooking the books and this is some kind of a scam. as a former director of the cia, how do you respond? >> if a president is going to be successful, this is no way
7:14 am
the president has to work with the intelligence community. the president has to make tough decisions. he cannot make those tough decisions without the very best intelligence that can be provided to him. i'm concerned that it really is damaging the credibility of our intelligence agencies and the morale of those men and women who serve in our intelligence agencies. >> the president has taken some actions against russia in the wake of the evidence he's seen on this hacking expelling 35 dip mats. donald trump has not ruled out reversing those sanctions and those moves. what message would be sent if after being sworn in donald trump reverses the actions taken by president obama in response to the russian hacking? >> well, it would be a terrible message for the president of the united states to reverse those steps. frankly, i think president obama should have acted much earlier during the summer when we had the first information that
7:15 am
was going on but the president, to his credit, did take action. when we know that these attacks have gone on and the russians are behind it, it's extremely important for the united states of america to take action against that happening. because if we don't, then we are literally saying it's okay to attack our country. it's okay to conduct espionage against our country, and you don't have to pay any price. >> how seriously do you take the threat from russia at this particular stage? is it an act of war? >> one of the debates going on in congress is just -- and in the administration is what kind of cyber attack substitutes an act of war. you know, i can't -- i don't think that's ever truly been defined and i'm not going to say it's an act of war, but it is an attack on our country. it's an attack on our election system. it's an attack on our freedoms. when an
7:16 am
do that, this nation has to respond and we have to do it in a unified way between the president, our intelligence community, and the congress. >> secretary panetta, i appreciate your time tonight. thank you so much. >> thanks, matt. >> you can tell he takes this personally as someone who used to run the cia. >> it'll be so interesting to see if donald trump changes his tone and approach following this intelligence briefing today. if he'll take things more seriously. >> or if his tweets and comments he's kind of put himself in a box on this. it'll be hard for him to get out of it. >> yeah. interesting to watch. also, new developments in the disturbing story we told you about on thursday. the kidnapping and torture of a teenager in chicago live streamed on facebook. nbc's blake mccoy has the latest on that. good morning. >> reporter: katie, good morning to you. the four suspects from that disturbing video will make their first court appearance behind me
7:17 am
ultimately they'll face hate crime charges among others for the cruel and senseless attack. >> they showed their faces on video. today they'll show their faces in court. two black women and two black men charged with kidnapping a white teenager with mental health issues and what authorities are calling a hate crime. the video shows the 18-year-old victim tied up, slashed with a knife, and forced to drink toilet water. the ordeal, according to police, went on for hours. it was posted to facebook live for all to see. the actions of that video are reprehensible. that along with racism have absolutely no place in the city of chicago. >> anybody seeing it is both -- it's sickening and sickened by it. >> reporter: but this morning, the victim's
7:18 am
nbc news she hasn't seen it and won't. >> i don't think i could handle it. i don't want to watch him suffer. i know he did. >> reporter: investigators confirm t victim went to school with one of his alleged asill lants, jordan hill. he met up with hill at a suburban chicago mcdonalds on new year's eve. what started as a sleep over, investigators say, escaladed over several days. officers found the 18-year-old wanring the street on chicago's west side disoriented tuesday afternoon. they located the house they believe he was being tortured in about a block away. the racially charged attack has prompted condemnation from black leaders. >> our community, in fact, is embarrassed by the actions these young men -- their actions are barbaric and we're outraged. >> reporter: as for the victim? his siblings
7:19 am
well as he can be expected. >> we're grateful for the prayers and efforts that lead to the safe return of our brother. >> reporter: in addition to the hate crime charge, the four suspects will face charges of battery of with a deadly weapon, unlawful restraint, and kidnapping. if convicted of the kidnapping charge alone, they could face up to 30 years in prison. >> blake mccoy, thank you. to an embarrassing mistake made by a washington daily newspaper drew heavy criticism. the "washington post" express cover story about the women's march on washington mistaken by featured the male gender symbol. people flooded social media sites to slam the cover. they apologized for the error saying it was very embarrassed. >> i hate when that happens. >> i know. al is back with a check of the weather. >> we'll have more coming up on the nasty winter storms across the country, inclu
