6:00 am
i i think people made up their minds about the emails. >> this is bigger than watergate. >> you are fascinated with sex. >> we have to stop this. ♪ good morning and welcome to sunday "today," i'm willie geist. we're nine days from a presidential election that feels like it began a lifetime ago.
6:01 am
both campaigns say they want to know more from fbi director james comey after the revelation that they have flagged e-mails, stoking the story right before the election. clinton on saturday calling the new development, quote, very troubling, calling out director comey to explain. donald trump seizing the opportunity to remind voters of the e-mail controversy. we'll speak live to his campaign manager kellyanne conway later. and justin timberlake to talk about his rise from mickey mouse club, to 'n sync, to solo career. what was your strategy? >> i don't know. it can bring out a lot of courage. at the end of the day, you know you're getting the opportunity to do what you love. >> good conversation with justin a a little bit later. before we get to the presidential campaign. we begin with breaking news overnight. officials in central italy assessing a damage after a powerful 6.6 earthquake struck the area early this morning. buildings crumbled in the historic city of norcia. one city official is saying it's
6:02 am
as if the whole city fell down. the quake could be felt 100 miles away in rome. so far no one has killed or trapped in the rubble, but there are several reports of people being hurt. this was a tremor from a quake that struck the same area in august that killed 300 people. an update this morning of what sparked a huge fire on an american airlines plane on friday just moments after it took off. the ntsb says a turbine disk broke loose, sparking the fire and sending debris as far as a half miles away. 20 of the 61 passengers suffered minor injuries. and the cleveland indians just one win away from the world series title. the indians beat the chicago cubs last night 7-2 behind ace pitcher, corey kluber. they've been waiting 71 years. so far the cubs have lost both games at wrigley. they get another shot tonight with game 5 in chicago. if the indians take it, it will be the franchise's first world series win since 1948. now to the race for the
6:03 am
white house. the fallout from the news on friday that the fbi found new emails related to the server investigation. a move secretary clinton calls unprecedented. let's get the latest from hallie jackson. she's outside trump tower here in new york city. hallie, good morning. >> reporter: hey there, willie. good morning to you. this morning, we are learning that the fbi director surprised even the justice department with his decision to notify congress of that new information, a decision that apparently defied the departments recommendation, sources tell us. now he is under fire as hillary clinton's campaign looking to get off defense goes on attack. you newest all-out assault from the hillary clinton campaign not against her republican rival, but fbi director james comey. >> it's not just strange, but unprecedented and deeply troubling, because voters
6:04 am
deserve to get full and complete facts. >> reporter: clinton pushing back hard against the letter from comey about the fbi's review of new e-mails relating to the inquiry into clinton's private server e-mails sources say that come from the laptop of anthony weiner. he's the estranged husband of huma abedin, and under investigation for allegedly sexting a teen. now we are learning that that koemey sent that letter against the advice of the justice department, which has longstanding policies against sharing information so close to an election. those sources say comey himself deciding telling congress was better than waiting and hoping news of the discovery wouldn't leak. >> very, very serious things must be happening, and must have been found. >> reporter: but it's still not clear exactly what has been found since fbi agents have not even analyzed the e-mails yet,
6:05 am
with both sides calling on the fbi to share more. four top senate democrats now demanding the fbi give them answers by tomorrow, pointing out the e-mails may be duplicates of what the fbi already has, with clinton's campaign says the letter is light on facts, heavy on inknew endo. >> there's no evidence of wrongdoing, no charge of wrongdoing, no indication this is even about hillary. >> and even back up by bill clinton. >> there's sometimes a big difference between the way things look and the way they are. >> reporter: the controversy put a new spotlight on abedin and her estranged husband with trump taking aim at weiner. >> i don't like huma going home at night and telling anthony weiner all of these secrets. i had no idea i was going to be
6:06 am
that accurate. >> team clinton standing by abedin hoping to show that what looks like a bombshell is actually fizzling out. trump's team really obviously sees it differently, an adviser telling me he will go on offense big time. watch for him to hit this today at his rally later on in battleground nevada. >> lucky for us we have one of those advisers, donald trump's campaign manager kellyanne conway is with us. let's start with what we know about this, which is not very much. we know in the course of investigating anthony weiner, the fbi found several emails, thousands of emails, according to nbc's reporting, but don't know the content. haven't even read them. last night donald trump said this is the biggest scandal since watergate. do you know something about the content that the rest of the people, including the fbi, doesn't know? >> no, of course not, but what we do know when hillary clinton says this is unprecedented what we should remind ourselves what is unprecedented, indeed unnecessary is her having that private server in the first
6:07 am
place. she set off the chain of events. she can't escape that. she's playing the victim now. they're doing an all-out assault on fbi director comey, shooting the messenger plus, a full body slam, all day yesterday, and i think that's a risky strategy as well. let's remind ourselves, but for hillary clinton violating long-standing policy setting up this private server, deleting 33,000 emails, failing to turn over an additional 17,000, bleaching them so they would be permanently deleted, we wouldn't be in this position. by the way, she could just hue ma andi zblsh -- telling huma abedin, what is in those emails? she could call us -- call into the "today" show and tell you, willie geist, here's what in the e-mails. >> this is an open investigation on the eve of an election. that's why the doj recommended not to proceed with the letter. if you were on the other side of this, would you think this was the right thing to do on the eve of an election to be so vague about it without knowing the content? >> comey was in an impossible
6:08 am
position from my view. had he sat on the information, he may well have been interfering with the the election as well. if you go and vote for hillary clinton and she becomes the president of the united states, and this investigation is reopened or i guess is a separate investigation is launched, then what? she's already president under this cloud of corruption that really has defined the last couple years. >> the country has gotten whiplash, because it was just july when your campaign was going after james comey when he announced there should be no prosecution. that was his recommendation to the attorney general in that case. donald trump suggested the process was rigged there, that in fact james comey was acting with the doj on behalf of hillary clinton to help her win the election. have you changed your opinion about jim comey? and his ethics? >> no, these are two separate things. here is why. on july 5th, james comey came forward and told the public we're not going to prosecute hillary clinton, then he went on to completely under cut that conclusion by calling her reckless and careless in her handling of the
6:09 am
situation. two days later goes in front of congress under oath and says, well, she didn't have one server -- she had many devices, they destroyed evidence. yes, in fact under oath there was national security and classified information being exchanged on that server. so he under cut his own judgment. this is different. this is a separate investigation i think he was in an impossible situation. let's not let him be the victim too much either, in that had he done a thorough job to begin with, maybe we wouldn't be in this position. that's also on huma. she signed, as i understand from the evidence, she clearly signed that she confirmed she had turned over all the devices that was what was demanded of hillary's team, yet we have one with maybe 15,000 e-mails. i think it's incredibly ironic this stems from another investigation, has nothing to do with the republican party, the trump campaign into anthony weiner's sexting. so this is on them. >> do you expect we'll learn the contend of those emails before election day? >> i have no idea. i know that the general nature of these types of investigations is that they take a long time.
6:10 am
so i think the clinton campaign is pressuring comey to do something that may not be possible given the short time. let's talk about the trump campaign's path to victory. you know as well as i do looking at that map every day that it's always been a tough path. there are many swings states that have gone toward hillary clinton, that are swinging in her favor, leaning that way. many people have pointed out interesting where he's spending his time, places like colorado, michigan, where hillary clinton has pretty comfortable leads, pennsylvania as well. are you spending your time in the right places? >> yes, and he does up to three different states per day. she doesn't do that usually. he was in three states yesterday. throw states the day before. he will be in a few states today, including new mexico, where the public polls have tightened of late. michigan on monday, but he'll go back to pennsylvania many times, so we see the map, florida, ohio, north carolina, iowa look good for us, and then we add nevada, new hampshire, maine too, and we have a lot of other places we're going. >> is your internal policies
6:11 am
-- internal polling different than the public polling? you mention new hampshire, pennsylvania, michigan, she has leads in much of -- >> she does does indeed, but she never gets beyond 46%. i would worry, if you're an undecided voter, willie, what are you going to learn in the next nine days that's going to say, you know what, i actually do like her and i do trust her, and i've been wrong all along. those undecided voters generally go against the status quo, against the person who represents more of the same. we feel emboldened. we also like the early returns, the information we're getting from the rnc every day, they provide us with information about the early returns, compared to where we were in 2012. >> look at the front page this morning of "the washington post," a story from a reporter david faronhold who is doing exhaustive reporting on donald trump's charitible giving over the years. the conclusion of this piece is
6:12 am
that donald trump basically hasn't given as much as he's claimed he's given. there's a simple way for us to know how much he's given. that would be to release his taxes. you've made it a year and a half without releasing them. why won't you release the tax returns? >> for the same reason mr. trump always states, willie, the lawyers and the accountants said don't do it while under an active audit. but he has put forward a 104-page financial disclosure form. >> that's not tax returns. >> that journalist and that paper are way against mr. trump, we know that, but from my personal knowledge and from -- this man is a very generous person with his time and with his money and has helped a lot of people over the years. that foundation, the trump foundation, no one is on the payroll, no family member, there's no overhead. all of the money -- >> you acknowledged, though, kelly anne, the irs says he could put forth his tax returns. that's just the advice of his tax returns. >> that's the same organization that's audited him, of course they think that, but he has advice from his accountants and
6:13 am
lawyers. i think talking about disclosing one's tax returns versus here we are under the second fbi investigation in a year, most people i know are not under fbi investigation, let alone two of them. i think people will look at hillary clinton and saying this has been my hesitation and my reelectric tans in froet -- reluctance in voting for her all along, and i simply can't elect somebody like that. it's too risky of a choice. she does not believe in full disclosures and transparency. >> you're not going to surprise in nine days and release the tax returns? >> we're going to surprise everybody and win the election. dylan is here with a quick check of the weather. >> on this sunday we are looking at heavy rain across northwestern california. we'll see two days of rain, today and tomorrow a second round of storms. we could see all in all about four inches of rain, some of that rain stretching up into oregon as well. we could even see 5 to 10 inches of snow in the sierra nevada.
6:14 am
even more in the higher elevations. elsewhere across the country, it's all about the record warm temperatures. we're looking at highs running about 15 to 25 degrees good morning, bay area. get ready for a day of rain along with breezy to windy conditions. right now all is calm. this is before the storm. 59 degrees in the south bay. peninsula, 61. and over the next couple hours we may start seeing some light rain in the area. now, no rain is approaching just yet, but we are tracking a storm system that is expected to bring a significant amount of rainfall throughout the day with the possibility of isolated thunderstorms. here is a live look right now at our radar. and that's your latest forecast. >> dylan, thank you very much. straight ahead, the highs and lows of the week, including the 97-year-old cubs fan who was there at both pearl harbor and the team's last world series, now back at wrigley 71

horror experienced briefly by drivers along colorado's interstate 25 when they looked over and saw a beer truck barreling down the highway without a driver. it was not in fact a runaway beer truck. it was the successful test of a self-driving anheuser busch truck carrying 2,000 cases of budweiser. the start-up company otto successfully sent out the truck in the cabo wabo spring -- there it is -- good new there was a driver in the backup sleeper cab. i know they have the technology figured out. i'm just not quite ready for it. >> if it goes over the side of the road, a free for all for everyone. >> that was a perspective i hadn't thought about. free beer if it wrecks, from dylan drier. our final high to the chicago area family that found the most entertaining way imaginable way to break the

dj san francio bigad/2sh you're watching "today in the bay." thanks for waking up with us. a live look there at san francisco. good morning, everyone. we're going to have a look at the forecast. how are we looking vianey? >> a pretty strong cold front. current temperatures still nice in the 50s. you may start seeing some light rain throughout the early morning. we're not expecting the heaviest of the rainfall just yet. it's still pretty offshore. a pacific system is sitting off to the northwest and it's expected to make its arrival throughout the day. the strongest storms are offshore. i want to make mention this system will be more along the

6:28 am
people were in outrageous outfits. >> it's perfect now. now it's a neighborhood event. it's a family event. doesn't every family celebrate halloween this way? >> police have not reported any major incidents at this year's celebration. new developments in the east bay police sex scandal as the fallout continues. nbc bay area has confirmed that the richmond city manager plans to fire four richmond police officers. they're accused of exploiting the teen who was underage when some of the officers allegedly had sex with her. dozens of officers from other east bay agencies have also been linked to the scandal. and take a look at this video. captured by a neighbor of a large house fire in san jose. it happened at a home on mount diablo drive just before 9:00 last night. one person was trapped in the home, but firefighters were able to get the victim out alive. >> we did find one unresponsive adult male fire victim who we extricated, rescued, and resuscitated and transported to
