as we keep rolling rokerthon 3. we are attempting to set a record with almost 1,000 students playing the world's largest game of freeze tag. that's right, the guinness world record for largest freeze tag game in the world's largest wooden dome, the superior dome. it's all coming up. we're going to start tagging people coming up in the next hour. tag, you're it. it's going to be big. the world's largest wooden dome, the world's largest freeze tag game. let's do it. >> he's ready. >> all right, al, thank you. >> let's get to the top story first. growing calls for the republican chairman of the house intelligence committee to recuse himself from the investigation into russian mettling after he had a secret meeting on white house ground. trump was
overnight. we'll talk about it with lindsey graham, but first with peter. >> reporter: the president venting on twitter. the this morning top democrats are saying the way the republican chairman of the house intelligence committee is running his investigation is a sham. they argue after his latest revelations that he has lost the appearance of impartiality. a striking new demand this morning from the house intelligence committee's top democrat. adam schiff calling on the panel's republican chairman to recuse himself from the russia investigation. arguing he's compromised his credibility. >> i think that given his role in the transition team and the events of the past week, it has too much called into question whether he has the objectivity necessary to have this role.
congressman not backing down. >> i'm sure the democrats want me to quit because they know i'm effective at getting to the bottom. >> let's hope so. >> reporter: the controversy follows an acknowledgment that he met a secret source on white house grounds to review classified documents. the meeting one day before returning to brief president trump that spies may have picked up communications involving the president and his associates improperly revealing their names. he denies coordinating with the president's aides. >> i could have snuck on to the grounds and nobody would have seen me, but i wasn't trying to hide. >> reporter: he is defending his decision to review it but not in the white house itself, because he says the information had not been given to congress. >> probably at least once a week if not more than that, we have to go to the executive branch in order to read
intelligence. >> reporter: fellow republicans are standing by nunes. >> whether it's the white house or waffle house, what difference does it make if the information is reliable. devin had to do it this way. >> reporter: the mystery is growing with jared kushner volunteering to testify before senators investigating the russia connection. those senators zeroing in on his meetings last december with a russian ambassador and the head of a substitution state-owned banks sanctioned by the obama administration. a white house aide telling nbc news during the campaign and transition kushner was fulfilling his role with foreign governments and officials. >> reporter: also today the president is expected to reverse president obama's efforts to combat climate change. he will sign an executive order on energy independence in the words of senior administration officials that will also
administration's clean power plan. that's sought to reduce carbon emissions from power plants. one official described it to us, the best way to protect the environment is to make sure the economy is strong. peter alexander, another busy day at the white house. lindsey graham is a senator. good to see you. good morning. >> good morning. >> you're a straight shooter. shoot straight with me. >> i wish you had a noon show. >> we know. we got that message. >> bear with us here. if you take all the questions about this classified information that congressman nunes received, who you received it from, where he received it, combine that with the questions about what he did with that information after he got it sharing it with the president and the press and not his colleagues on the intel committee, and you add to that the fact that he was an
to the trump administration, aren't there questions that he should recuse himself from any investigation involving the trump campaign and russia? >> well, i think you put it his objectivity in question at the least. i would suggest the they share the information he was given by this unknown person so they would all know exactly what he's talking about. if he's not willing to the tell the democrats and republicans on the committee who he met with and what he was told, then i think he's lost his ability to lead. the democrats on the committee are becoming prosecutors. one guy last night said on a cable show there was probable cause to believe the russians and the trump campaign collaborated. >> if you go back to your words, he's already put his credibility in question at the least, then doesn't he have to recuse himself? >> i think he has to repair the damage. the house is off track and probably can't get back
warner doing a great job. but as to whether or not he should step down, i'll leave that to the house leadership. i think most americans want to know who did he meet with and what did he see? >> do you think he received that classified information from someone at the white house? >> i have no idea. i think you should know that and i should know that. i think he owes that to his fellow committee members. if he was given classified information that suggested impropriety about the trump campaign, he needs to share that with his fellow committee members. senator, the suspicion is maybe it's the trump team that orchestrate third down whole thing, that this information, that supposedly vindicates president trump came from the trump administration. do you think it's fishy he went to the white house to get it? >> yeah, i think it's a little bizarre. there's nothing been suggested -- revealed to suggest that the obama administration
that's not even what nunes is saying. he's saying there's collection outside of russia. the problem he's created is he's gone off on a lark by himself, kind of an inspector investigation trying to find unmasking information about collection incidental with the trump campaign and some foreign agent outside of russia. the only way this thing can be repaired, the tell people who he met with and what he saw and let them look at the same information. >> jared kushner, son-in-law to president trump revealed he met with the head of a russian bank, a bank sanctioned by the u.s. during the transition. does it bother you? >> the bank, yes. the fact he met with the banker, i think he needs to explain himself. >> on health care, if replacing obama care proved to be a 10 in the terms of degree of
to tax reform, knowing that some democrats and members of the freedom caucus now feel emboldened and a lot of interest groups want a piece of the tax reform pie, what's the degree of difficulty on that? >> the east german job, 9.4. the it's going to be the tough. out of this collapse if this crash and burn in the house, the ashes of a failed republican attempt may spring up true bipartisanship. i hope the moment will arrive where democrats and republicans will work together to replace obama care. >> if what does the east german judge say about the chances of that? >> about 6 .4. there's no other option. >> on that bipartisan note, we have what's going on with judge gorsuch's nomination. the democrats threatening to filibust filibuster. on the otr yo t democrats saying wait a minute, president obama nominated america garland
even get a hearing. an impartial observer might think you deserve each other. >> well, i voted for sotomayor because i thought they were qualified. i've got no problem with what happened with garland. he was a fine man. we don't put people on the court after the campaign started. we haven't done it for over 100 years. gorsu gorsuch, trump couldn't ve picked a better choice. highly qualified. >> senator with a rare pink panther reference on the program. >> i love that inspector. i wouldn't pick him to do this investigation, though. >> senator, come back and see us often. >> thank you. breaking overnight other news. two miami dade county police ofic

>> reporter: the sheriff says her diary called for the attack on april 5th. she was immediately taken out of class and sent to a local hospital for evaluation. the school says she was struggling with mental health issues. >> this was a student who needed some intervention and help. and i think the silver lining is that she's going to get the help she needs now. >> reporter: once she's released from the hospital she'll face charges. the sheriff says he's not sure whether she had the will to carry out her plan. >> pete, thank you. a high profile fight over fair pay. the u.s. women's hockey team threatening a boycott unless they see progress toward settling a wage dispute. >> reporter: they were hoping for a deal overnight. but there isn't one. the women's ice hockey world championship kicks off this friday in the u.s. but the u.s. team, the current world champs may be
when the winter olympics kick off in less than a year, the usa women's hockey team will be a metal favorite. right now the team is so angry with the sport's national association they are threatening to boycott this week's world championship tournament. >> we need more visibility and gapes and need to be paid properly. >> reporter: they were expected to vote on monday. but no announcement. the team says they don't get nearly the support the men get flying coach instead of business class, sharing hotel rooms instead of getting their home. the men can practice full-time and travel to games relying on nhl salaries. women don't earn anywhere near that kind of money playing professionally. the captain of the women's team says all they're asking for is a living wage. and equitable benefits. support for the women players is
major league baseball and the nhl. members of the men's hockey team may boycott their own championship in solidarity. >> we support them. we would like to think they can work something out. >> a group of 14 u.s. senators dialled up the pressure with a letter to usa hockey to express their serious concerns. account boycott looming, usa hockey went looking for replacements. at least some of the high school and college players refused. the fight looks a lot like the one the u.s. women's soccer team wijed to get equal pay before the games in 2016. some of the players spoke with matt hear on "today." >> why does it come to a head now? >> i think the timing is right. we've proven our worth. >> now women's hockey is saying the same thing. if no one listens, they don't play. >> in a statement usa hockey says they have increased their level of direct srt
