7:02 am
race in north carolina where president obama will be campaigning with hillary clinton, their first trip together. donald trump has his own event there today. this as our new nbc survey monkey online tracking poll shows clinton leading trump five points nationally. let's start with andrea mitchell in charlotte this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. president obama will go all out in the first campaign appearance with hillary clinton today giving her a ride here on air force one. they've been teammates. even rivals. and today president obama will do what few other incumbent presidents have. lend his political firepower to his party's likely nominee trying to help elect hillary clinton. >> i'm with her. i am fired up. i cannot wait to get out there and campaign for hillary. >> reporter: he'll be the first incumbent since ronald reagan to
7:03 am
campaign actively for his successor. many are too unpopular or too controversial to be asked but mr. obama's popularity is above 50%. a huge benefit to clinton in battleground states like north carolina. president obama is giving hillary clinton a ride on air force one and donald trump has pounced. usually the campaign picks up part of the expense for air force one when used for political travel. today's speech is about clinton and the economy, what's achieved so far and what more needs to be done. officials tell nbc news not a broad attack on president obama but the president has been slamming trump for comments and polici polici policies aides say mr. obama e
7:04 am
sees as offensive. in fact, the president has plenty of motivation to want to defeat trump. starting with trump's birther challenge to mr. obama's legitimacy. >> you are not allowed to be a president if you were not born in this country. he may not have been born in this country. >> reporter: the timing of today's appearance is awkward coming so soon after hillary clinton's interview with the fbi and her husband meeting with the attorney general and donald trump is not going to let any time go by. he's playing tag team coming here to the state to north carolina tonight just after clinton and obama take off. >> thank you. donald trump also stepping up his search for a running mate tweeting about possible picks and responding to the firestorm over an image he tweeted that is viewed by some as anti-semitic. >> reporter: trump is under fire for that tweet that many saw as
7:05 am
anti-semitic and now taking the unusual move of tweeting about who he's meeting for potential running mate. donald trump trying to blame hillary clinton for a tweet he sent out showing clinton over a pile of money with the caption the most corrupt candidate ever in what many consider a star of david. trump deleted the image within hours but not before a firestorm of criticism. hillary clinton's campaign calls it blatantly anti-semitic saying it's a pattern that should give voters major cause for concern and now trump's campaign is defending the tweet arguing the star was really a sheriff's star adding clinton through her surrogates is trying to divert attention from dishonest behavior of herself and her husband. the statement came monday night after trump's tweets on a vp pick were not changing the subject. two weeks before the convention and the candidate is reminding
7:06 am
people he's narrowing down his options tweeting about meetings with two potential picks at his golf course over the weekend. only a day after the sit down and pence was forced to comment on trump's controversial tweet. >> you know, i think the campaign has addressed that. i would just say that my focus is indiana. >> reporter: also on trump's list, newt gingrich but again does gingrich want to do? >> being vice president means you have to go to meetings. you have to sit around. you have to deal with the press all the time. you have to deal with congress. i used to be a congressman. i know what it's like to deal with congressmen. >> the next president of the united states. >> reporter: sources close to governor chris christie say he's interested but with a 26% approval rating in new jersey, it's not clear the governor could even deliver his home state.
7:07 am
speculation right now is that the decision could come as early as next week but sources close to the candidate and the campaign remind me that donald trump is unpredictable. he could pick somebody completely different and make the announcement much sooner than you think. savannah and willie? >> katy tur, thank you. nicole wallace, nbc political analyst, good morning. le let's start with the democrats. is it upside for hillary clinton to campaign with president obama or downside for reporters who don't want a third obama term? >> in this climate, a political year where everything is on its head, these horrific tragedies, terrorism really from all around the globe and sadly here at home, she is attaching herself, which she has already done, to obama's foreign policy record and after trump had the worst month of his candidacy, he still edges out hillary clinton on
7:08 am
that single question of who do you trust to protect this country against the threat of terrorism? i think the one risk for her is to attach herself too much to the obama foreign policy widely viewed by republicans and independents to be ineffective on that front. >> so she'll be out with democratic all-stars. what does she need out of these people? is it about the honest and trustworthy question? >> the other places she has a deficit in our poll is the question of honesty and trustworthines trustworthiness. she's running a top shelf campaign. she has the president of the united states who made this fight against trump personal for him in comments in his official role taken on the central tenants of trump and trumpism she has elizabeth warren out
7:09 am
there throwing sharpest knives on the shelf but losing to trump in terms of honest and trustworthiness. >> trump is out there tweeting about who he's meeting with. we all know about it. we've seen names on the short list. complete thing for sentence. the best vp for donald trump is someone who -- >> who tells him how bad things are really going behind closed doors but puts a good face on the campaign in public. i think by that measure chris christie is probably the person he wants to pick. i've seen candidates pick the person they want. i think george bush wanted to pick dick cheney and he did. obama wanted to pick joe biden and he did. they have picked candidates that would make the biggest splash sarah palin was in that category. nobody knows what donald trump is going to do except donald

trump. >> thank you, nicole. to an historic achievement for space exploration overnight. we're geeking out over this. after a five-year journey, a solar powered probe has arrived in orbit around jupiter. >> nasa scientists at the jet propulsion lab in southern california say it's the toughest thing they've ever done putting a spacecraft named juno into jupiter's orbit overnight. it was all for juno, nasa's space probe that successfully entered jupiter's orbit after a five-year journey. >> nasa did it again! that says it all to me. >> reporter: juno's ambitious mission, figure out how jupiter

7:12 am
that was just tens of kilometers large, isn't that incredible? >> reporter: right now aboard juno there's a special camera that will take color pictures of the planet and nasa is helping for your help at home in deciding where to point that camera for jupiter's up close moment and even though juno traveled for a long five years, arrived right on time starting its orbit of jupiter just one second off schedule. willie, savannah? >> just astounding. thank you so much. i was thinking about this this morning. a five-year trip and they nail it within one second. say it again. people at nasa are geniuses. >> imagine whoever did that mathematical equation. impressive. now to this ongoing search for whomever left a homemade explosive in central park that seriously injured a teenager from virginia over the holiday weekend. today craig melvin is in central park this morning with the latest on this. craig, good morning. >> reporter: savannah, good morning to you. connor golden's life was changed

7:14 am
certainly his father and mother do but does he know? >> reporter: police now searching for clues and witnesses. investigators believe the blast was a result of someone experimenting with fireworks and not a terrorist act. >> we would not categorize this as an explosive divide number one. number two, it was not placed there as part of an experiment to have someone be hurt or step on it or touch it or not at all. >> reporter: experts believe it was created by an parexperiment. the tragedy happening on a holiday weekend known for firework injuries. on sunday, several people were injured in kentucky when a firework misfired. in plymouth, massachusetts, a barge caught fire cutting the show short. fortunately no one was hurt. in new york on monday, police were out in full force to protect the 4 million expected

8:01 am
comey. expected to make a statement from washington. at this hour, we do not know the subject of the statement he will make, but a lot of speculation it may have something to do with the department of justice investigation into hillary clinton and e-mail practice. we have a live shot the podium. we expect james comey to take the podium in a moment. let's go to chuck todd. the moderator of "meet the press." we are scratching our heads. we don't know what the press conference is about. >> we would assume and so many wondering they would have waved off. sometimes he does this for terrorism investigations. let's not assume it is what it is. coming now 772 hours removed frm her meeting with the fbi. i know in your experience in your days as a lawyer, that is not a lot of time in the middle of a supposed investigation. so, that did give the clinton people feeling those would experience it, maybe they feel good.
8:02 am
>> and here is director comey. >> good morning. i'm here to give you an update on the fbi's investigation of secretary clinton's use of the personal e-mail system as her time as secretary of state. after a tremendous amount of work over the last year, the fbi is completing its investigation and referring the matter to the department of justice for a decision. what i want to do today is three things. i want to tell you what we did. i want to tell you what we found and i want to tell you what we are recommending to the department of justice. this is going to be an unusual statement in at least a couple of ways. first, i'll include more detail about the process than i orderly would. i think the american people deserve the details in the case. i have not reviewed this with the department of justice or any other part of the government. they do not know what i'm about
8:03 am
to say. i want to thank the fbi employees and the work. once you understand how many we have done, you will understand why i'm proud of their work. first, what we have done. this investigation began as a referral from the intelligence community inspector general in connection with secretary clinton's use of the personal e-mail server during her time as secretary of state. the referral focused on whether classified information was transmitted on the personal system. our investigation looked at whether there is evidence that classified information was improperly stored or transmitted on that personal system in violation of the federal statute that makes it a felony to mishandle classified information, intentionally or grossly negligent way. a second statute making it a
8:04 am
misdemeanor to knowingly remove classified information from the storage facilities. in response to the counterintelligence, we have investigated to determine if there is evidence of computer intrusion by nation states or hostile actors. i have used the singular term so far. secretary clinton used several different servers and administrators of the servers in her four years at the state department. she used mobile devices to send and use e-mail on the personal domain. as new servers and equipment were employed, older services were stored and decommissioned in various ways. piecing that back together, to gain as full an understanding as possible of the ways in which personal e-mail was used for government work has been a painstaking undertaking requiring thousands of hours of
8:05 am
effort. for example, when one of secretary clinton's servers was decommissioned in 2013, the e-mail software was removed. that did not remove the e-mail content, but it was like removing the frame from the huge unfinished jigsaw puzzle and putting all the pieces on the floor. the effect was millions of fragments ended up in the server's unused or slack space. we searched through all of it to understand what was there and what part of the puzzle we could put back together. fbi investigators read all of the approximately 30,000 e-mails that secretary clinton provided to the state department in 2014. where an e-mail was assessed as possibly containing classified information, the fbi referred that e-mail to any agency that is a possible owner of that information so that agency can
tv-commercial tv-commercial
8:06 am
make a determination if the e-mail had classified information when it was sent or received or classify it now if the content was not classified sent or rereceived. that is the process as up classifying. from the group of 30,000 e-mails, returned to the state department in 2014, 110 e-mails in 52 e-mail chains have been determined by the owning agency to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received. eight of the chains contained information that was top secret at the time they were sent. 36 of the chains contained secret information at the time and eight contained confidential information at the time. the lowest level of classification. separate from those, about 2,000 additional e-mails were up classified to make them confidential.
8:07 am
those e-mails had not been classified at the time they were sent or received. the fbi also discovered several thousand work related e-mails not among the 30,000 e-mails returned to secretary clinton in 2014. we found the e-mails in a variety of ways. some deleted and we found some on devices connected to the private e-mail domain. others we found by reviewing the archived government accounts by people in government at the time. including high ranking officials at other agencies. folks with whom the secretary of state would correspond. this helped us recover the 30,000. still others we recovered from the painstaking review of the millions of e-mail fragments in the slack space of the server decommissioned in 2013.
8:08 am
with respect to the thousands of e-mails we found not among those produced to the state department, agencies have concluded that three of those were classified at the time they sent or received. one at classified and two at the next level. none of those we found have been up classified. we found no evidence that any of the additional work relate e-mails were intentionally deleted to conceal them in any way. our assessment is like many e-mail users, secretary clinton periodically deleted e-mails or percenta purged when devices were changed. there was no archives of her e-mails. it is not surprising we discovered some on the e-mail in
8:09 am
2014 when very produced those to the state. it could be some of the work-related he have mail ra e- that were discovered by the lawyers in late of 2014. the lawyers doing the sorting did not read the content of all of her e-mails like we did. they relied on header information and tried to do search terms on the 60,000 remaining on her system at the end of 2014. it is highly likely that their search missed some work-related e-mails and we found them and in the mailboxes of other officials or slack space of a server. it is also likely that there are other work-related e-mails they did not produce to state and we did not find elsewhere and now gone because they deleted all
8:10 am
e-mails they produced to state and they cleaned devices to conclude the forensic recovery. we have discovered the information to attempt how the sorting was done by the attorneys. we cannot fully reconstruct the electronic record of the sorting. we believe the investigation has been sufficient to give us confidence there was not intentional misconduct with the sorting effort. of course, in addition to the technical work, we interviewed many people to whose involved in setting up the server, to staff members to whom she corresponded with e-mail and secretary clinton herself. last,extensive work to try to determine what
tv-commercial
8:11 am
indications there may be of hostile actors in the e-mail system. now let me tell you what we found. we did not find clear evidence that secretary clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the hailing of classified information, there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive highly classified information. for example, seven e-mail chains classified at the top secret special access program at the time they were sent and received. those chains involve secretary clinton both sending e-mails about the matters and receiving e-mails about the same matters. there is evidence to support a conclusion that any reasonable person in secretary clinton's position or in the position of those with whom she was corresponding with the matters should have known an unclassified system was no place
8:12 am
for the conversation. in addition to the sensitive information, we found information that was secret by the intelligence community. that is excluding any later up class filed e-mails. none of the e-mails should be on an unclassified system. it is concerning because all of the e-mails were housed on unclassified personal servers, not even supported by full-time security staff like those found at agencies and departments of the united states government or with a commercial e-mail service like g-mail. i think it is also important to talk about the marking of classified. only a small number of the e-mails here bore markings the classified information. even if information is not marked classified in an e-mail, participants who know or should know the subject matter is
8:13 am
classified are still obligated to protect it. while not the focus of the investigation, we also developed evidence that the security culture of the state department in general and with respect to the use of unclassified systems in particular, was generally lacking in the kind of care for classified information found elsewhere in the u.s. government. with respect to the intrusion, we did not find direct evidence that secretary clinton's personal e-mail domain in its various configurations in 2009 was hacked successfully. given the nature of the system and of the actors potentially involved, we assess we will be unlikely to see direct evidence. we do assess that hostile actors gained access to the private commercial e-mail accounts of people with whom secretary clinton was in regular contact from her personal account. we also assess that secretary clinton's use of a personal
8:14 am
e-mail domain was known by a large number of people and readily apparent. she used her personal e-mail extensively outside the united states including sending work related e-mails in the territory of work related adversaries. we assess it is possible that hostile actors gained access to secretary clinton's personal e-mail account. so that's what we found. finally, with respect to the recommendation to the department of justice. in our system, the prosecutors make the decisions about whether charges are appropriate based on evidence that the fbi helped collect. although we don't normally make public the recommendations to the prosecutors, we make recommendations about what resolution may be appropriate given the evidence. in this case, given the importance of the matter, i think unusual transparency is in order.
8:15 am
although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding of handling of classified information, our judgment is no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case. prosecutors weigh a number of facts before deciding to bring charges. the obvious considerations like the strength of evidence and with regard of intent. and the context of a person's actions and how similar issues were handled in the past. in the mishandling or removal of classified information, we cannot find a case that would support bringing criminal charges on these facts. all the cases prosecuted involved some combination of clearly intentional and willful mishandling of classified information or vast quantitiesiquantities of information or indications of
8:16 am
disloyalty to the united states or efforts to obstruct justice. we do not see those things here. to be clear, this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances, a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences. to the contrary. those individuals are subject to security or sanctions. that is not what we are deciding now. as a result, the department of ju justice makes final matters on this case. i know this will be intense debate. what i can assure the american people is this investigation was done honestly, confidently and independently. no outside influence of any kind was brought to bear. i know there were many opinions expressed by people not part of the investigation, including
8:17 am
people in government. none of that mattered to us. opinions are irrelevant. they were all inn informed by inside to the investigation. we did our investigation the right way. only facts matter. and the fbi found them here in an entirely apolitical and professional way. i could not be prouder to be part of the organization. thank you very much. >> you were listening to the news conference to james comey. the director of the fbi. he served the obama administration and bush administration. he concluded significantly that hillary clinton will not face criminal charges in the investigation into her e-mail practices when she was the secretary of state. as he mentioned just there, generally, the fbi makes the recommendation to the department of justice. in this case, it is unusual as i turn to chuck todd. loretta lynch has just in essence recused herself.
8:18 am
saying she would accept the recommendation. here they decided not to prosecute. that doesn't mean they give a free pass to hillary clinton and behavior here. >> it was an extraordinary 15 minutes in the history of the presidential campaign and in the history of presidential polit s politics. director comey felt he had to walk through people. we live in such an era of mistrust and distrust, he felt he had to spend half of his time painstakingly go through everything. if you are hillary clinton, you have a clean bill of health. she does not have a clean political bill of health. it is not going to dump stuff on her. the cloud doesn't go away. this brought back all of the issues they thought. that is the long term damage.
8:19 am
>> it doesn't end the presidential campaign with an indictment. i turn to andrea mitchell where clinton is campaigning with president obama today. there is no question a lot of material here for her political opponen opponents. james comey did not give her a free pass. it was careless for her to have a server with classified information on it, andrea. >> he did say that. he said he could not rule out hostile actors penetrated her e-mail and those e-mails with whom she was communicated. he described a careless procedure. the facts that she was as careless as he described if his -- basically this was a political indictment of how she handled e-mail. it discounts her explanations she made for the course of a year as to the security of the e-mail system. it will be fodder for her
8:20 am
critics and frankly for a lot of supporters it will be troubling for the key voters, independent voters, who are critical of the campaign. the fact also of the timing which is extraordinary. she is supposed to be heading here to charlotte today on air force one. embraced by barack obama. how difficult is this? the other thing we should point out which is amazing, the fbi director would never in an ordinary case reveal this much about the case as chuck was saying in advance of the recommendation to the justice department. >> he gave a lot of information about what exactly that investigation had found. we should mention we are looking at a live picture of hillary clinton on the campaign trail now. chuck, it was interesting. how many times have you heard and andrea heard and i heard asking secretary clinton. i never knowingly sent or received classified information that was marked classified at the time. comey took that on directly.
8:21 am
even if something is not marked classified, people who know or should know have a duty to protect it. he is saying she should have recognized how sensitive this information was whether or not it had a marking that said classified. >> he took it to a point. essentially said i have two examples where she should have known better. he walked through two specific examples of e-mail chains where she both sent and received that she should have known better. let's talk about the big picture. if this gone the other way, we are nine days from the first convention. this could have created an entirely different situation in the democratic party. today is a sense of relief in brooklyn. a bunch of people watching on tv. they thought it felt good considering saturday to today. that was the sign of the good thing. they were nervous.
8:22 am
>> it never happens in washington. a general feeling of suspension. nothing leaked. i have pete williams on the phone. pete, you are the person to remark upon how james comey said the recommendation, but walked everyone through. the thought process and investigatory steps. >> they have been thinking whether to do this if no charges were filed. as soon as they said the fbi director was making the announcement, i thought he would say what he said. the first thing to point out, savannah, the fact she used a personal e-mail server is irrelevant to the question to how classified information was handled. it would have been the same problem if she used the unclassified state.gov system. that was the problem with the classified information in the unclassified system. using the personal e-mail made it worse because it was less protected. the main problem was putting classified information on the
8:23 am
non government non classified system. basically the conclusion was it was sloppy, but not criminal. i can tell you that he senses the justice department did not know what he was going to say. i was trying for the last hour. i have been talking to people at the fbi for weeks now saying if you don't file or recommend charges, how will we know you are done. within the last couple weeks, they were saying we're discussing that now. it is unusual for the director of the fbi to layout the recommendations to the justice department are. it is not over. justice will still make a decision. the attorney general said last week that she will be guided by the recommendations of comey and the career people at justice. i would be very surprised if this goes any way other than no
8:24 am
charges. >> pete, you make a good point. the issue of whether or not she had a personal server is not directly related. the issue was the hostile actor or nation state was able to access the information. andrea, he said the fact she had the private e-mail was known to a large number of people and used this overseas. we not see any direct evidence, but we probably won't. i felt it is likely there was intrusion there. >> exactly. the fact she used her private device overseas in hostile territory. most likely in russia and china and place where is they would have such access. he said it is likely it was penetrated, although he had no evidence of it. pete is a better expert on one piece of this, but i think it is
8:25 am
also justice department ruled that you do not make decisions very close to a presidential election. i think in that case, they were already getting very close to that moment. they had to say something before she is officially nominated. it would be that much worse in august after the democratic convention. there is a down side here. there is no criminal prosecution because as he points out, in all of the past cases and i know a number of them personally as do you, where we had a former cia director, two in fact, involved in mishandling classified information. it was intent and the quantity of the information in those cases that led to prosecution. >> no question about it. whether to prosecute for this fbi director seemed to hang on the issue of whether there was
8:26 am
evidence of intentional misconduct. criminal charges will not be filed. we will continue to follow this on nbc.com and tonight on nbc news with lester holt. i'm savannah guthrie. this is an nbc news spec overnight fire that heavily 8:26, firefighters say illegal fire works caused an overnight fire in valet ho. started about 1:00 this morning at a house on devenger and spread to the main house. crews say parts of the home were savaged, but few now, it is uninhabitable. they blame illegal fireworks, but the homeowner says a faulty refrigerator. most of the bay area, a very, very light drive. in fact, the earlier crash in
