7:02 am
we're going to have game six, so exciting. >> going back to cleveland, it's going to be a lot of fun. >> how is your back? when you wear high heels you get that lower back pain. thinking of what you're going to be. we'll get to halloween. let's start with the state of the race and bombshells with just eight days to go. the fbi set to begin searching through a reported 650,000 e-mails found on anthony weiner's lap top looking for any connection to the investigation into hillary clinton's private server. >> as that plays out a new poll from abc news and "the washington post" shows the race tighter than ever. just one point now separating clinton and trump which is a statistical dead heat. >> both through states hillary clinton in ohio, at noon her running mate tim kaine in north carolina. and on the republican side donald trump and mike pence heading to michigan and florida. >> we have coverage on all of
7:03 am
this beginning with nbc's peter alexander. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. no matter what if anything new fbi agents find on that lap top, the fbi director's announcement has certainly put a jolt in this case. it remains unclear whether this will have any legal impact, but the political consequences are already playing out with donald trump hyping the news and hillary clinton and her allies criticizing director james comey's announcement as being overblown and wrong. after obtaining a search warrant over the weekend the fbi will begin pouring through a reported 650,000 e-mails found on a lap top belonging to anthony weiner and hess estranged waive whom who searching for e-mails related to the investigation in clinton's private server. with days to go before the election the fbi stunning announcement is igniting a fierce partisan brawl. the top democrat harry reid unloading on james comey in a
7:04 am
scathing letter. accusing him of possibly violating the hatch act that bars government official from using their position to influence an election. writing through your partisan,s you may have broke at any law attacking comey for having a double standard insisting he is in possession of quote explosive information about ties between trump, his advisers and the russian government. a claim trump and the russians deny. this is hillary clinton blasting comey for reviving the e-mail controversy providing few details in his letter to congress friday. >> it's the not just strange, it's unprecedented and it's deeply troubling. because voters deserve to get full and complete facts. >> reporter: former attorney general eric holder seems to agree writing in "the washington post" it's incumbent on comey or the leadership of the department to dispel the uncertainty he created before election day. sources tell nbc news the newly
7:05 am
discovered e-mails were found during the underage sexting investigation of anthony weiner, the disgraced former congressman, his estranged wife huma abedin off the trail this weekend. trump reveling in the news. >> we never thought we were going to say thank you to anthony weiner. >> reporter: trump tries to capitalize, clinton's team is urging comey provide clarity. >> the issue is if the he doesn't come out and get all of the information on the table, he's going to get any one, any conspiracy theory take the day. >> and vote. >> reporter: aggressively trying to power ahead. >> we won't be distracted no matter what our opponents throw at us. we're not going to be knocked off course. >> reporter: with more than 20 million votes cast, both sides are trying to motivate supporters. >> the first female president of the united states. >> reporter: clinton at a jay low concert. trump trying to expand the map.
7:06 am
>> america is tired of waiting, the moment is now. we're never going to have another chance. forget four years from now. it's not going to happen. >> reporter: the 21 million cast is a record. what is noticeable in some key states like florida and north carolina the early vote is up considerably, meaning it's likely one third of the expected vote has already been cast. back to you. >> peter, thank you. >> let's turn to pete williams working sources at justice. what can you tell us? >> reporter: good morning. fbi agents are beginning to sort through the newly discovered e-mails, it's a top priority for the fbi and while it could take weeks officials say there is some chance it could be over quickly. late sunday a federal judge gave the fbi approval to go through the thousands of e-mails written by huma abedin found on the lap top. they will narrow them to look at just those dating from the time
7:07 am
hillary clinton was secretary of state, and then they will weed out any that are not about government business. agents will use some automated software to search what is left for duplicates they have already found during the investigation of the clinton e-mail server, and any that remain will be checked for classified information. officials say there no way to tell how long this is going to take but if it does go quickly and in the event nothing classified is found, the fbi could say so within the next few days. it all depends on how many of the e-mails are duplicates and new to the investigators. the fbi faces new questions this morning about the time line for notifying fbi director comey about the e-mails. some officials say agents first noticed the e-mails earlier this month. and fbi officials says agents got weiner's computer to check for evidence of alleged sexting, then there was no urgency for that search, only recently the officials say that the potential significance of those e-mails became clear. >> pete williams with the latest
7:08 am
from washington. thank you. >> let's bring in nicolle wallace, and chief legal correspondent, good morning to all of you. nicole, back to october of 2015, a year ago. when bernie sanders said at that debate with hillary clinton americans are sick and tired of your damn e-mails, what are we talking about now with eight days to go until the election. the question is it an october distraction or october game changer? >> well, it's on october surprise, and i think you start at the right place. the original sin is hers, but the question that none of us here knows the answer to is have voters taken this into account already. we know this will thrill the trump voter, this will depress and discourage hillary clinton supporters, make them anxious. what we don't know is all those voters and i wouldn't even call them undecided. they are people who don't like either choice. will that push them one way or the other. >> can we talk about what james
7:09 am
comey did. i assume he felt when his agents came to him to say we need a warrant to search this lap top, he figures okay, that's going to leak out. and that information is going to get out so i might as well get ahead of it and write this letter. on the other hand the letter is so vague that it has the same effect, partial information that's out there, that anybody can use to their advantage. >> right. two pieces of that. on the election i think this headline clearly not good for hillary clinton, because it says clinton and fbi. but if you actually read these articles over the course of the week going into monday morning it's not bad for hillary clinton because the letter vague as you point out savannah, didn't say they found anything yet. they just want to look whrks jim comey got too far out over his skis is a question. >> it's vague but like hiding cheese in your desk drawer. whether you intend it to cause a commotion everyone's talking about it. >> and jim comey made choices. it didn't name the other case
7:10 am
but in hours other leaks did that it's anthony weiner and huma abedin. did jim comey do more harm than good even if he felt what he felt and says was prudent. >> we're not ignoring you steve but to nicole you got to love washington, the very people, the democrats who are exstoling the independence of jim comey when he said i'm not going to prosecute are now saying shame on him, and the republicans trump who was ripping the fbi for its lackluster investigation now jim comey is a hero. >> why everyone says you want a friend in washington get one of the canine variety because they are the only ones that won't turn on you with the news. what we'll be tested. i know you'll get to this. what will be tested a week ago the same poll that has hillary clinton ahead by one had her ahead by 12. they are both wrong. she was never ahead 12, probably not in a one-point race. the polls will probably always about four to six points. what this is going to test is the durability of her lead going into the scandal. >> i'm going to get you up to
7:11 am
the board but donald trump, how does he play this hand? does he have to play it a little more carefully than he's started to play it? >> what he has to do is something he has been incapable of doing over the long entire campaign, that is be disciplined. he has been handed the dream message for the home stretch after campaign. if he can stay on the attack and stay focused on this message, in not take to twitter at 3 in the morning and pick a fight with somebody, not get baited into a fight off topic and creates a new distraction that seems simple for trump. a difficult thing to do. >> you have some new polls taken before this comey news. >> right. so we can go here and show you. you've got that poll we showed at the top that show as one-point race. that was indicating there may be new enthusiasm from republican voters. so before all of this started here's what the road to 270 looked like. two new polls coming out yesterday again these do not, do not take into account wa we had the news on friday.
7:12 am
look you see hillary clinton here in florida, ahead by a point. basically a dead even race there in florida. this is a must win race for donald trump. then look in north carolina, again, must win state for donald trump, this is the challenge for trump why they need this is story. 6 points behind in a must win state. again if you are donald trump when we say you need a jolt from this news you need every state that is gray on this map right now, you need to win and then you need to also pick up one of these blue states now. you need a surprise and as peter said more than 20 million votes already cast. >> all right. thank you all. we're not used to having three of you here. >> bigger. >> we're going to have a little more on this later including a closer look at the relationship between hillary clinton, huma abedin and anthony weiner. to a dramatic end and deadly as well to the nearly week-long man hunt for a suspected gunman in oklahoma. blake mccoy has that. good morning. >> reporter: savannah, good morning.
7:13 am
this week-long manhunt is over. this morning michael vance is dead, after police received a tip from a property owner that he had been camping out. as police feared he did not go down without a fight. overnight the manhunt for michael vance coming to a dramatic end after the oklahoma fugitive opened fire on police, not once but twice. >> about 8:30 this evening the sheriff of dewey county attempted to make a traffic stop on a white flatbed pickup. the vehicle stopped, the driver exited the vehicle and started shooting. >> reporter: the 38-year-old vance fled after that shoot-out and following a wild 25-minute car chase by patrol officers he exchanged in gun fire with police again. >> they confronted vance just north of here where there was a pretty fierce gun battle. ultimately vance was killed a it the scene.
7:14 am
>> reporter: wellston police officer james hampton was among the first to encounter vance a week ago taking target practice on tvs close to homes before turning his gun toward officers. >> i was thinking about a lot of things. >> like what? >> family. you know. i didn't know if i was going to see them again. >> reporter: vance shot hampton in his foot and another officer in the leg before police say he took off in a stolen truck and posted this taunting video live to facebook. >> this ain't a joke, this ain't a prank. >> reporter: he is accused of carjack jag a woman and murdering his aunt and uncle. police say vance had been acc e accused of sexually assaulting a child and that may have sparked his anger. >> it's a huge relief. not only for us but i'm sure for the public as well, this guy has been on a pretty bad crime spree

>> for halloween. we're going to run and jump into our costumes in just a few minutes. >> looking forward to it. but first, here is a check of the headlines at 8:00. good morning. we begin with the race for the white house. i'm hallie jackson in warren, michigan where donald trump supporters are there are fired up for his rally here. but the big headline of the day -- the fbi now looking at 650,000 newly discovered e-mails according to a source familiar with the investigation, to see if they're related into the inquiry surrounding hillary clinton's private server. the fbi director himself now under fire after the latest twist in an already unprecedented campaign. today, democrats finding a new target in the battle for the white house. fbi director james comey. >> the fbi director took an unprecedented action. >> this is unprecedented. >> it's not just strange, it's unprecedented, and it is deeply troubling. >> reporter: top senate democrat
8:03 am
harry reid doing battle, accusing comey possibly breaking federal law by telling congress so close to the election about new e-mails related to the inquiry into hillary clinton's private server. part of a complicated story that intertwines some of this year's most explosive political plot lines. here's the latest development. the fbi today has a warrant to go through e-mails found during a separate investigation into anthony weiner accused of sexting an underaged girl. the e-mails come from a family computer that weiner shared with his estranged wife, huma abedin, one of clinton's closest aides. the clinton campaign sees comey's move as purely political. >> you believe this could cost you the election? >> i don't think so. >> reporter: now clinton is demanding comey share more, to show these new e-mails aren't bombshells, but duds, maybe even duplicates of what the fbi already knows. republicans want comey to give more details, too, for a different reason -- to confirm their suspicion clinton did something wrong. though right now, nobody really
8:04 am
knows what the e-mails show and may not until well after the election. that hasn't stopped donald trump from trying to capitalize. >> now the fbi has found -- you're not going to believe this one. this one just happened. another 650,000 e-mails. i think that's called the mother lode. >> reporter: to his campaign, it's an october surprise that's surprisingly helpful with the race getting tighter in battleground florida, starting to catch up to clinton nationally just eight days out. and new this morning, a law enforcement source familiar with the investigation says abedin and her attorneys have told the fbi she didn't know these e-mails were on that computer. so will any of this move the needle with voters? we're taking a look at a new online "politico" poll taken entirely after the story broke that shows clinton with a three-point lead over trump, the same margin as before. so the bottom line -- this race is tight, but not dramatically

8:36 am
same thing, 30-second intervals so it doesn't burn. i like to use two forkses so then you don't get your hands all messy. you sort of flip them over. i'm not kidding, these are butterfingers. >> i got to try one of these. that's hard though. >> these have been in the fridge too long. if you don't put them in the fridge, they'll be kind of soft and choosey. >> can i have my tooth back? it's in there. >> then there is a slime cake also. it's basically just a boxed chocolate cake mix with pudding. that's the slime on the top. neon green food coloring. it kind of just gives off that oohy gooey slime feel. >> super cute. >> is there ever a holiday that's better for food coloring sales than halloween? >> i don't think so. >> siri, thank you so much.
