7:08 am
according to the paper, this would stop short of the national state of emergency. the president's opioid commission recommend it. experts say any attention directed to this serious crisis could help. the president promising something soon to show how he plans to fight the nation's opioid crisis. >> we're going to be doing a very, very important meeting on opioids. in terms of declaring a national emergency. >> reporter: but this morning, we're learning the president will stop short of declaring a broader state of national emergency and, instead, will declare the opioid epidemic a public health emergency, according to "usa today." the less sweeping proclamation expires after 90 days but can be renewed. the paper says that will give states more lee way to shift federal funding to addiction treatment, free up labor department grants for people seeking help. let patients talk to their doctors over the phone rather in person. tap a special fund to give the heal
7:09 am
more flexibility. the fund only has $57,000 in it. the hope, the administration's moves will put pressure on congress to do more to fight the crisis. with the president's own opioid commission estimating drugs kill, on average, 142 americans every day. that's more than guns and car accidents combined. >> that means we have a 9/11 every three and a half weeks in america. if we had a terrorist organization that was killing 142 americans a day on our soil, how much would we be willing to spend to stop it? >> reporter: governor christie chairs the commission after promises like these from donald trump on the campaign trail. >> it is a huge problem all over our country. >> reporter: and this pledge. >> we're going to spend a lot of time, a lot of effort and a lot of money on the opioid crisis. >> reporter: it has taken time for the president to declare a national emergency, like he promised. stalling progress, his health and human

7:11 am
2009/2010. savannah? >> hallie, thank you. we should mention, we have a lot more of your conversation, matt, with governor christie, including how his state has recovered five years after superstorm sandy. that's tomorrow morning on "today." now new developments in the harvey weinstein scandal with more accusers coming forward, pressure is mounting on the weinstein company to do more. stephanie gosk is here with the latest on that. good morning. >> good morning, guys. another accuser. another allegation of sexual assault. this time, the alleged victims' attorney, gloria allred, leveled a challenge at the weinstein's board of directors. they want to do right by the accusers, she says, they need to pay them. >> it is time for the weinstein company to put their money where their mouths are. >> reporter: attorney gloria l allred is calling on the company weinstein's co-founders to set up a fund and pay his accusers. >> the harm it's caused to their careers and health continue and must be addressed. >> reporter: allred sat next

7:13 am
weinstein when the allegations of sexual assault first surfaced in the media, the weinstein company board said, these allegations come as an utter surprise to the board. any suggestion that the board had knowledge of this conduct is false. >> i'm moving out. >> reporter: actor dominique hewitt accuses weinstein of forcing her to have oral sex. >> as many times as i said no and resisted, i feel like he was not going to let up on the idea. >> reporter: hewitt announced her lawsuit days after a civil rights investigation was opened against the company. women have alleged sexual assault to rape. the powerhouse that won 22 oscars for films like "silver linings playbook" and the "king's speech," hangs in the balance. a company that was going to make
7:14 am
through. we've reached out to the board but have not heard back. at the power woman breakfast this morning in los angeles, survivors of sexual assault are expected to speak. they include at least two weinstein accusers. >> thank you very much. other news, five women have come forward to accuse journalist and author mark halperin of sexual harassment. he is a senior political analyst for nbc news and acknowledged last night that he had engaged in, quote, inappropriate behavior around women he worked with at abc news over a decade ago. in a statement to cnn, he said, i now understand from these accounts that my behavior was inappropriate and caused others pain. for that, i am deeply sorry and i apologize. under the circumstances, i'm going to take a step back from my day to day work while i properly deal with this situation. according to cnn, none of the women reportedly alleged incidents to abc news
7:15 am
management. nbc news has not independently verified the accusations. msnbc issued the following statement. we find this story and the allegations very troubling. mark halperin is leaving his role as a contributor until the questions around his past conduct are fully understood. let us take a turn. today's much-anticipated release of classified government files about the assassination of president john f. kennedy is in the news. what are we going to learn from them, and will they satisfy the conspiracy theorists? nbc national correspondent peter alexander is at the national archives with more on this. peter, what can you tell us? >> reporter: hey, matt. good morning to you. the anticipation certainly building. will this be the final chapter in one of the most defining episodes of american history? among those fueling the suspense, president trump himself green lighting this release, ironically, while on a trip to dallas. tweeting, so interesting. that infamous drive through
7:16 am
conspiracy theories for more than a half century. today, americans could learn new details about one of the country's enduring mysteries. federal law requires the national archives release all of its jfk files by today. among the key questions, did oswald act alone? did the u.s. government know more about the assassin's movements than it's priestly led on? was oswald under cia surveillance during a trip to mexico city, where he visited the soviet and cuban embassies? >> the real story, maybe, is that the cia knew only seven weeks before the assassination that oswald may have threatened the president. he returned. the cia does what it always does, told no one. >> reporter: multiple investigations concluded oswald was the lone gunman. his own story dying when he was shot shortly after his arrest. americans aren't convinced. to this day, more than 60% believe kennedy's assassination
7:17 am
to camelot. >> almost like the film broke in our lives. it broke from wone era of glamor and excitement and hope. the future looked very bright. then it was over in a flash. >> reporter: the national archive says, we assume that much of what will be released will be tangential to the assassination. historians will be pouring over more than 3,000 long-sealed files, hoping they reveal a cia personality profile of oswald, whether the fbi had evidence he was bragging about plans to kill kennedy, and maybe a handwritten letter from first lady jackie kennedy, detailing funeral arrangements. 54 years after his tragic death, the jfk mystery remains alive. >> i think that we will never be able to put a period at the end of the sentence, lee harvey oswald acted alone, and have everybody agree with that. it's a case that will never go away. >> reporter: how will those thousands of documents be
7:18 am
when? even that remains its own mystery, though we assume the national archives will post them to their website, at which point sleuths and scholars alike can dive? >> fascinating. thank you very much. mr. roker is here with our first check of the weather. >> we're looking a a tropical system possibly developing, from florida all the next 30 days could become a days, 40%. here's the five day develop ment zone. no matter what happens, we see we could be looking at three to it continues the coast. low pr develops. upper level trough enhance increa the flood threat. anywhe from three to five you come up the coast from northe be looking
