2017. from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie. live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. good morning, everyone. welcome to "today" on this monday morning. well past8q]our bed times last night, but from everything i hear this was one of the great world series games ever. >> immediately in the record books and houston is oh so close. we will see what happens. but we have quite a monday morning. we want to get right to this news that has washington frankly the whole nation on pins and needles this morning. the office of special counsel robert mueller set to announce the first indictment into the investigation between alleged ties between the trump campaign and russia during the 2016 election. we have two reports beginning with nbc national correspondent peter alexander. peter, start us off. >> reporter: good morng from here at the u.s. district court house. after five months at the helm of the russia investigation special counsel robert mueller will take a significant step
7:03 am
firsthand knowledge othe process confirming to nbc news that mueller's office will make public an indictment, charges that for now remain sealed by order of a federal judge. as early as today robert mueller's first target could be taken into custody. nbc news confirming a federal grand jury in washington days ago approved the first criminal charges in the special counsel's investigation into russian election interference. >> we haven't been informed of who it is and i don't think it would have been approprteor bob mueller to tell us. >> reporter: the indictment remains sealed but those under scrutiny include paul manafort as well as his former national security adviser michael flynn. mueller previously issuing grand jury subpoenas for documents and testimony related to both men, each of whom has denied wrongdoi wrdo trent to be fuming. after a weekend round of golf and yiet out at his d.c. hotel
7:04 am
president trump unloaded about a barrage of tweets blasting what he called phoney trump collusion which doesn't exist, attacking democrats for conducting a witch-hunt for evil politics and trying to attract attention to allegations against hillary clinton demanding republicans do something. ty cobb insisting the trump tweets are unrelated to the activities of the special counsel with whom he continues to cooperate. what alleged crimes have been committed, that's also unclear. >> it's going to be really important whether or not this indictment involves 15-year-old business transactions or 15 day old conversations with russia. >> reporter: the president's allies already warning that alleged leaking of mueller's grand jury activity was against the law. >> we have to be very careful about this stuff. grand jury secrecy is very important to the effectiveness of a grand jury investigation. >> reporter: that accelerating investigation the latest political challenge for the president whose approval rating just hit a record low
7:05 am
to the new nbc news "wall street journal" poll, just 38% of americans praising his performance. the lowest figure in modern times at this stage of a presidency. and so far the white house has not commented directly on the expected first indictment, but the president himself is questioning the timing, suggesting that this russia talk is effectively just a deliberate distraction saying that it's coming just at the time that republicans are trying to pass tax cuts. back to you. >> peter alexander, thank you. we turn to pete williams. as i go to you there's more that i don't know than do right now but what are the mechanics? how would this work today? >> as you know so well, savannah, it's possible that mueller's office will just tell the defendants what time to show up in court in response to a summons but it's more likely that whoever has been indicted will actually be arrested by federal agents and brought to the courthouse. in past years it's true that defendants cge
7:06 am
nonviolent crimes were simply allowed to show up, but recently the practice has been for even white collar defendants to be arrested. >> after we find out who this is about and what it's about what happens next? >> these people are brought to the federal courthouse in washington, the one you just saw peter standing in front of, that's just a few blocks from the u.s. capitol building. once they get there they will be booked, photographed and fingerprinted and then brought before a u.s. magistrate judge for a brief hearing. these are very short, the judge informs them of the charges, advises them of their rights, including the right to have a lawyer and will decide the conditions of their release. it's very unlikely the prosecutors would ask to have them held in jail pending any trial which would be months away, but whoever is there will be asked to surrender their passports. >> as you know, pete, an indictment can be the beginning of a legal process, it can be the end of an investigation. i mean, the big question is how this one might fit into the overall investigation that mueller is doing. >> well, i think a couple of things. number ont
7:07 am
if it's already starting to spin out indictments and we will know more when we see the actual documents, but one tactic that prosecutors often employ is to turn these early charges into a kind of a building block. they use a potential plea bargain as leverage to get these early defendants to help the government build a case against the higher ups, savannah. >> we will see if that's the strategy at work here. stand by. we have a lot more to get to, including a powerful coastal storm that has impacted tens of millions from the soutth way up in new england, damaging winds, a lot of rain causing damage and travel delays. we will get to al on this in a moment, but first nbc's morgan radford is on cape cod in massachusetts. morgan, looks a little blustery there. >> reporter: especiayhe wind, matt. good morning. in fact, the eye of that storm is currently here over cape cod but we haven't even begun to feel its full extent. this as more than 800,000 people are waking up all along the

7:09 am
cresting up to 25 feet high. the storm barreling dk8tñ on th same area devastated by superstorm sandy fiveea ago, that storm killed almost 150 people, left 8.5 million without power and caused widespread damage. that's why the coast guard is preparing its fleet. >> this storm is going to be a significant event and we recommend people stay off the water. >> reporter: and rests are bracing for impact. >> i think it's going to be pretty bad. >> reporter: the storm is expected to last well into the afternoon and here we are currently under a high wind and a flash flood warning, but as that rain begins to pick up throughout the day the threat of that flood may just be beginning. matt, savannah. >> morgan, thanks very much. boy, did it rain here. >> it really did. what do we have in store today? >> i discovered i have a leak in the skylight. good times. but it's not about me, it's about you. thank you for joining us. and we do, in fact, are
7:10 am
at those flash flood warnings, flash flood watches, the live radar shows the heaviest activity up around northern and central new england and the biggest risk right now as morgan mentioned are the winds, where strongest winds are going to be at the coast, cape cod and the island, gusts of 50 to 60 mile per hour winds, also 50 to 60 mile per hour gusts out on to long island. now, the coastal storm will also cause high surf, coast at flood risk, we're looking for rough surf, large swells and beach erosion going to be a big problem and the rain, although it will be tapering off, we're looking at some areas could pick up another 1 to 2 inches of heavy rain with this system, but that pushes off pretty quickly. behind it, though, much colder air and we will be talking about frost and freeze warnings coming up in the next half hour. >> nothing but good news. >> that's me, mr. smiles. well, we are going to get to the rest of al's forecast in a little while. first there's growing controversy tied to hurricane recovery efforts in puerto rico.
7:11 am
sweetheart deal officials say they will cancel a $300 million contract with a very small montana-based company to rebuild that island's power grid. gabe gutierrez is in san juan for us, he spoke with that company's ceo. gabe, what can you tell us? >> reporter: matt, good morning. the governor says that this had become a distraction and now officials are rushing to choose other companies to fill in because they say scrapping this contract could delay power restoration efforts by 10 to 12 weeks. this morning hurricane ravaged puerto rico is pulling the plug on a controversial contract to rebuild part of its power grid. >> there's a perception risk, our reputation on risk and a delayed risk in continuing with the contract. >> reporter: a small montana company whitefish energy amid mounting questions abo how it had scored the $300 million deal faced audits and congressional investigations. >> i think the peop o
7:12 am
>> reporter: the ceo of whitefish energy tells nbc news he first contacted the puerto rico electric power authority or prepa after hurricane irma in early september. >> i found them on linkedin. >> you found prepa on linked in. >> you bet. >> you used linkedin to get a $300 million contract. >> linked inn is going to love this, but yes. >> he strongly denies that ryan zinke also from whitefish, montana or anyone else in the trump administration helped him land the deal. fema says it had significant concerns about the costs and never reviewed the contract. >> it is corruption. you know, somebody greeced the wheels and did it very nicely. >> reporter: in a written statement whitefish says it's very disappointed in the decision which will only delay what the people of puerto rico want and deserve, to have the power restored quickly. >> show me another contraor that's here that's got the presence that we do that has a positive impact tha reenergizi
7:13 am
>> reporter: the whitefish energy ceo disputes reports that the company only had two full-time employees when maria made landfall saying the actual number was 20 to 40 full-time employees. puerto rico has already paid whitefish more than $10 million and 40 days after hurricane maria about 70% of this island is still without power. >> unbelievable. gabe, thank you very much. now to a new accusation in the wake of harvey weinstein skanld and its rocking hollywood. kevin spacey is apologizing this morning after another actor accused him of making a sexual advance on him decades ago, the accuser said he was just 14 years old at the time. kate snow is with us now. kate, good morning. >> good morning. anthony rapp is best known for his role in the broadway and movie versions of "rent." the actor said he felt compelled to share his story now after so many women came forward with a.m. zagss againsta
7:14 am
allegations after anthony rapp accusing spacey of making a sexual advance at a party 30 years ago when he was 14 and spacey was 26. overnight spacey a two-time oscar winner released a statement that read in part, i'm beyond horrified to hear his story. i honestly do not remember the encounter. it would have been over 30 years ago, but if i did behave then as he describes, i owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior and i am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years. in an interview with buzzfeed rapp says spacey invited him to his manhattan apartment for a party and made the sexual advance after everyone had left. he picked me up like a groom picks up the bride oveth thresholbut i don't squirm away initially because i was like what's going on and then he lace on top
7:15 am
the tv show ""star trek" discovery." spacey also said rapp's story encouraged me to address other things about my life. continuing in his statement he added as those closest to me know in my life i have had relationships with both men and women, i choose now to live as a gay man. i want to deal with this honestly and openly and that starts with examining my own behavior. that statement so drawing criticism from many who say spacey's apology should not have been tied to the revelation of his sexual orientation. in a statement to nbc news rapp says i came forward with my story, standing on the shoulderers of the many courageous women and men who have been speaking out to shine a light and hopefully make a difference as they have done for me. it comes as more women are revealing shocking new allegations against harvey weinstein. harvey weinstein. annebelabella

8:11 am
>> nbc news has learned that paul manafort, and rick gates will turn themselves in to face charges today. we want to get right to nbc's justice correspondent, pete williams. pete, good morning. we know who are the subjects of these indictments. do we know why? >> no. we don't know why. we haven't seen the court documents. it's interesting this is by summons. they've been told what time to report to the courthouse. they already -- we know mr. manafort left his house about 20 minutes ago, with his lawyer, presumably on their way to the courthouse. this is a picture of the suv that was carrying paul manafort and his lawyer, presumably headed for the u.s. courthouse here in washington. that means they were not arrested. sometimes in these white-collar nonviolent crime cases, they had arrested people and federal agents brought them to the
8:12 am
agreement, where the prosecutors tell the lawyer, you have to show up at the courthouse at such and such a times. the judge issues a summons, which is a command for them to show up. they will be at the courthouse here in washington. they will be booked and have a hearing and federal appearance before a federal magistrate. >> because of the stage of the investigation we're in right now, because the indictments are still sealed, there's a wide range of charges that could be brought here. everything from money laundering, to obstruction to collusion and others. we know nothing about that. >> right. we have to remember to keep our eye on the ball. the special council was appointed to look at whether anybody in the u.s. helped the russians meddle in the election. one key might be if they bring a peripheral charge against these two people, will they be using that charge to try to get them to cooperate more with the investigation? in other words, say, this is the charge you face. if you will agree with us, to
8:13 am
give you a lesser charge, a plea bargain, in essence, to get them to cooperate. we'll see if that's what this is all about. >> let's go over to peter alexander at the district courthouse in washington, d.c. we don't know what conduct is going to be alleged here. and we don't know if it will stem from the work that manafort and gates did for the trump campaign. but so people are familiar, and you were there covering it, what role did manafort and gates play at what time period in the campaign? >> reporter: well, they played a significant role. to be clear, right in the heart of the campaign. burg the summer season. paul manafort was brought in to help candidate trump, with their concerns that the party may find some way to rip the nomination away from him. manafo manafort, the campaign chairman. his proteege was rick gates, wh served as a deputy campaign manager, as well. these two
8:14 am
close to then-candidate donald trump. we're here at the u.s. district courthouse, where we have cameras on both sides, which may be our first opportunity to pose any questions to those men. manafort has spoken through his attorneys has continued to deny any wrongdoing in this. he has been under scrutiny was of his past relationship to foreign countries, including ukraine. it will be interesting to see what the charges are in this circumstance today. we're going to keep a close eye out and hope to have our first opportunity to see them in person a short time from now. >> peter, thank you very much. let's bring in jeremy bash, national security adviser for us. jeremy, based on what we know about paul manafort and we're speculating a bit here. based on what we know about his past, his jobs, his ties to ukraine, as peter mentioned,
8:15 am
>> you think of it as three buckets. i don't think the firing of jim comey is at issue today. the sect is collusion between the trump campaign and russia during the election. we haven't seen the charges. but i don't think we're talk about 2016-related activities here. we're talking about other business deals between paul manafort and other politicians in yaw ukraine, as peter mentioned. he's a conduit in russian-backed interests and activities in washington. that's a chance for bob mueller to further investigate the collusion question. >> i want to go back to pete williams. if manafort and gates are facing charges this morning, as you mentioned, it may be a strategic play by the special counsel. you wouldn't expect this necessarily to be the end of the investigation into manafort and
8:16 am
gates. it's over, the indictments are out? >> by no means. and we know the special counsel is right in the middle of a pretty intense period of investigating. they had people before the grand jury last week, in that same courthouse you saw peter standing in front of a moment ago. they're deposing witnesses. so, they're right in the middle of it. and just because this indictment is filed, it doesn't mean the government -- that's the ends of the homework assignment on them. they can come back with a superseding indictment and file more charges. that's leverage they have over the defendants. >> knowing what you know about investigations like this, it's been interesting to hear people on both sides of the political aisle, some saying that mueller is moving too fast, and others saying he is moving too slowly. >> well, i think this is a sign he is moving along relatively quickly. it's just been a few months since they've been at this. a lot of
8:17 am
one interesting thing here. they used a fairly heavy-handed approach against paul manafort when they searched his house. this time, they letting him show up to the courthouse. it's a somewhat gentler hand today. >> we're going to have much more on this throughout the day and an msnbc and nbc.com. now, we return most of you to "today." i'm matt lauer, alongside savannah guthrie. this has been an nbc news special report. all right, we want to head >> all right, guys, well, we're watching that big storm, over a million people now without power from washington, d.c. all the way up into new england. in fact, amtrak has canceled trains between boston and new haven because of downed trees, a lot of schools being canceled. winds are going to be the biggest problem now as this storm system moves into canada, the rain will end, the winds

8:22 am

writing the names down. >> we didn't get the names. >> exactly. >> we were promised last time. >> that's why i'm taking the matter into my own hands. this is why i need america's support. i need the world's support because i must make a film with no executives, no v.p.s, no lawyers. >> why do you need $10 million. film students make -- >> that's a film student. i'm going to self-celebrity, self-market, make the film and hire a team of attorneys that will protect me and the film. >> you raised under $200,000. is that right? it's going to take a long time to raise $10 million. >> we have two months. >> you told me, this is prevalent in hollywood. every day you wait, every day you try to raise money, i would imagine you believe that children are being abused by pedophiles in hollywood. >> absolutely. >> why are you talking to me? why aren't you talking to the

8:42 am
8:43 am
we're back. it's 8:42. next year will mark 50 years since the assassination of robert f. kennedy. he was shot and killed at the ambassador hotel in los angeles, shortly after winning the california primary. chris matthews hosts "hardball" looks beyond the tragedy to the man himself, in a book called "bobby kennedy: the raging spirit." you're such a kennedy scholar. last week, we saw some of the kennedy files opened up. what struck you? >> i stayed up until midnight. and i found some interesting stuff on bobby. i had been working for years on bobby. even though he went along with the warren commission, he and ted kennedy, they believed in it for logical reasons. the parade route hadn't been set until the day
8:44 am
how could anybody buput a conspiracy together. he said, maybe going after the bad guys. >> bobby going after the mob. >> going after the god father. he had been going after castro. was one of those guys behind what happened in dallas? >> were they doing it in retribution to dallas? >> he was saying, it could have been me. he was doing the tough work of catching bad guys, especially mobsters. >> the book is such an interesting read. and so much of bobby's life was in comparison to jack, or reference to jack. i'll just stick with that. as little kids, how did their experiences differ? >> jack was a sunny prince. he was a happy-go-lucky, charming guy. it was said that jack was a realist pretending to be a romantic. jack was not a romantic. he was cold-blooded in many ways. but very charming. bobby came off as the
8:45 am
one. bobby was the good guy. he was the one who got us through the cuban missile crisis. he really pushed for civil rights. he said, go on television. you have to do this ping. he was at ole miss, george wallace. he did a lot of good things. this picture, the back of the book. this is what i was inspired to write this book about. this is a middle-class family. those people, saluting the guy. this is the america that's gone now. the unity of african-americans and white working-class people together, the same type of patriotism together. and i think bobby brought them together. and since then, they've been divided. that's the division in this country, now. >> that was bobby later in his political career. earlier in his career, he did a lot of the enforcement stuff. you tell a story, that i cringe over. the part about lbj and how jack
8:46 am
convention in 1960. >> jack picked lbj because he needed the south. he didn't like johnson that much. i need this guy to carry texas, georgia and the southern states. as a roman catholic, i will have a hard time down there. johnson was the one spreading rumors about jack dying, he was sick. saying he was pro-nazi. and bobby did not forget this stuff. >> so, jack gets bobby into lbj's hotel room. and trying to shake him loose. and jack, of course, called up later, and said bobby isn't in the loop. a lot of times he -- >> he threw bobby under the bus. >> he needed him. he needed him to do the job. governors, go in the back room with a governor, and they come out thinking, i spent two hours with bobby. but jack was always loved. you know what it is? a friend of the family told me -- a member of the family. he spent his wholeif
