7:02 am
i thought we were watching "as the world turns" right there. >> that's a big one. meanwhile, mr. roker is standing here because this top story is the impending storm and it could be one of the biggest of the season here in the northeast threatening to bring the region to a standstill and also have some snow sweeping across the midwest this morning and al's got it covered with a lot of blue on the map there. >> we certainly do, guys. it's the first part of what will be this big nor easter and it's the snowstorm making its way from omaha, nebraska, chicago, st. louis and fort wayne all pushing this way. the energy from this system will be making its way to the east coast and chicago two to five inches of snow could be enhanced by lake-effect snow. right now from minnesota all of the way to new england, we have 121 million people at risk for some sort of winter weather and then as we drill down you can see blizzard watches for 5 million people including new york city, but we get up to boston and i have blizzard warnings in effect and blizzard
7:03 am
watches for new england. here we go. we start off tuesday morning and d.c., you will have heavy snow changing to a mix, philadelphia, new york city and the morning rush will be snow and strong winds. a lot of blowing snow. we get to midday, new york city and boston. it's snow and wind. the snowfall rates could be one to three inches per hour. locally up to four inches per hour as it moves along and tuesday evening, evening commute from philadelphia up to boston. we've got commuter troubles finally in washington and the snow lightens up and as we get on into wednesday morning and there's still blowing and drifting snow in boston, lessening wind and a frigid morning in new york city and whatever is on the ground is going to stay there. let's go through the totals and what we're seeing right now and you can see a wide swath of heavy snow. washington, d.c., we're calling for six to eight inches of snow. philadelphia, before it is all over, eight to 14 inches of snow. depending on the track of the storm, we could see more or we
7:04 am
could see less, but i think in general, new york city, 10 to 16 inches of snow or more. boston, 8 to 14 inches of snow or more, and the winds will be a big factor with this as will the temperatures. we will have wind gusts of up to 60 miles per hour from new york up to boston and blizzard conditions very likely and those temperatures will drop so whatever falls will be hanging around for a while. >> you will be busy this morning. >> thank you. >> camp out over there by the weather monitor. as you mentioned we are seeing the midwest dealing with this snow. nbc's blake mccoy is in chicago. it's been snowing there for the first time in months. blake, good morning. >> you can see light flurries falling in chicago and there is snow on the ground. folks who live here are having to dig around and find their snow boots. it's been months since we've seen any significant snowfall here. december 17th, that's the longest dry spell here in history here in chicago and for much of the country, winter is back. >> overnight snow piling up in
7:05 am
the heartland making for dangerous conditions and low visibility. this storm already slamming parts of the midwest. >> in minnesota, a major league soccer game went on despite the heavy snowfall and below-freezing temps. on the shores of lake ontario, a winter wonderland so surreal the photographer had to post that it was created by nature, not photoshop. in the carolinas, cars skidding off the slick roads. >> just, like, oh, my god. it's actually snowing. it's real snow. >> the northeast bracing for what could be the biggest snowstorm of the season impacting millions in its path. >> it doesn't seem right. are you kidding me? this time of year? >> reporter: the snow will start falling on the east coast tonight and they'll also be getting high winds this season and gusts up to 60 miles per hour which could topple trees, power lines and also make travel difficult. matt and savannah? >> a preview of coming
7:06 am
attractions. blake mccoy, thank you. that storm in the nor'easter had flight cancellations and delays adding up very quickly. nbc's tom costello is at the always-hectic jfk airport. tom, good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning. we expect this to be essentially an all-stop tomorrow, but here's where we stand right now, 1600 flights already canceled today and tomorrow as airlines start to get ahead of us, here's a list of the breakdown. today alone we've got 767 flights canceled. mostly that's tonight. folks are already getting ready for the flights tonight to be cancelled and then tomorrow almost a thousand and here are the affected airports, everything from the washington area up to baltimore, up to philly, into new york, up to boston. we also expect buffalo to be worth watching. by the way, chicago, ord and midway both affected already. airlines are waiving their fees and if you have from washington all of the way up to boston, chances are you can change the
7:07 am
flight without the penalty fee and that's a $20 fee, generally, but all of the airlines are alrea already waiving that. southwest airlines says tomorrow it expects no activity on the fleet with the east coast on the northeast portion of that, so it will be a difficult day and of course, as we always say and when you have the i-95 corridor and the east coast affected like this there is a ripple effect across the entire country. you could see flights affected in chicago and denver all of the way up to the west coast as planes are out of position and simply flights can't make their way to the east coast. back to you. >> tom, thank you very much. we'll have more on the storm throughout the morning including what you can do now to make sure you're ready. let's move to politics now. top lawmakers asking the trump administration to turn over evidence by today of the president's yet unproven claim that his phones at trump tower were tapped by president obama during the election, this as the trump team deals with follow-up from an abrupt house cleaning at
7:08 am
the justice department. we'll talk about all of this with kellyanne conway in the studio moments from now. let's talk to hallie jackson. good morning. >> reporter: hi, savannah. good morning to you. today starts another week for president trump with a budget proposal and health care push with a listening session set for today, but nine days after his explosive and unproven claim about wiretapping, still no evidence as one of his top advisers suggests maybe there's even more to this story. deadline day for the administration as congress looks for proof of president trump's still unsubstantiated claim that president obama ordered a wiretap at trump tower before the election. the house intelligence committee asking the justice department to send any evidence of it by today. >> i think the president has one of two choices. either retract or to provide the information that the american people deserve. >> reporter: now a new suggestion from white house senior counselor kellyanne
7:09 am
conway that the alleged surveillance may have gone far beyond wiretapping. >> do you know whether trump tower was wiretapped? >> what i can say is there are many ways to surveil each other now, unfortunately. >> do you believe that was -- >> there was an article this week that talked about how you can surveil someone through their phones, through their -- certainly through their television sets, any number of different ways and microwaves that turn into cameras, et cetera. so we know that that is just a fact of modern life. >> sure. >> the story still forcing republicans off the message they'd prefer to be pushing. >> that wasn't really part of the health care marketing campaign. >> reporter: house speaker paul ryan questioned. >> have you seen anything to suggest there were wiretaps? >> no. >> now the justice department's in the spotlight for something else. the decision to fire 46 u.s. attorneys. it's fairly common practice for a new administration to ask those political appointees to step down, but one u.s. attorney from new york refuseded to. preet bharara tweeting this
7:10 am
weekend. i did not resign. moments ago i was fired. bharara, a prominent public prosecutor and fighter against financial fraud said back in november he'd been asked by president trump to stick around. >> i said i would absolutely consider staying on. i agreed to stay on. >> the attorney turnover coming one day after these comments from fox news' sean hannity. >> every hold ore from the obama administration, they need to go. >> reporter: a white house official says that did not affect the timing of the announcement. this week the gop hopes to keep the focus on health care, party leaders are looking to move fast, to send a new bill to repeal and replace obamacare to the senate in less than a month, even with some republicans skeptical it will get that far. >> i don't want to see the house majority put at risk on a bill that is not going to pass the senate. >> the vice president pitching the plan on the road in kentucky this weekend. >> obamacare has failed the people of kentucky. it's failed the people of america and obamacare must go. >> reporter: and in texas at one
7:11 am
of his first political events since the inauguration, donald trump junior telling a gop fund-raiser he hasn't seen much of his father since he took office and handed the business over to his sons. >> i basically have zero contact with him at this point. >> reporter: and new this morning, a senior administration official tells nbc news that secretary of state rex tillerson on his trip to asia will make final arrangements for the chinese lead tore come to the u.s. to visit president trump at mar-a-lago. matt, savannah, back to you. >> lots going on behind you, hallie jackson, thank you. >> kellyanne, good to see you. >> this is the day the house intelligence committee wants the justice department to turn over any and all evidence they have that proves that barack obama wiretapped the phones at trump tower during the campaign as president trump has alleged. are we going have real facts on this this afternoon? >> the president called for the house and intelligence committees to add this piece of
7:12 am
the investigation to an existing investigation and he's pleased that that is happening. we won't really comment further until those findings are -- >> why wouldn't the president say to jeff he's pleased that's happening. we're not going to comment further. >> why wouldn't the president say to jeff sessions, his appointee to attorney general, turn over to the american public, evidence on this subject that i can be proven right when i accuse barack obama of a crime during the campaign. >> that sounds like an incendiary allegation. what jim clapper has said on other networks, if not this one, he can say those organizations under his purview did not do this. that doesn't discount the rest of the obama administration. we know kevin lewis, the president's spokesman said a week ago, matt. he said he can tell you that the president and people in the white house weren't responsible. >> you said incendiary accusation. it's president trump who made that accusation. >> we're very happy that the house and senate intelligence committee see enough to go ahead and add this to an investigation. >> aren't they doing it as a
7:13 am
courtesy? in essence, the president is saying, hey, congress, can you find this out for me? when it's something that he, himself, could pick up the phone and find out. senator john mccain said this weekend, either retract the statement to president obama or provide the information. this is information he has. he tweeted about it. he brought it up. he has the power to clarify. why not? >> i can't comment on the private conversations he has with his attorney general and other officials on this topic. we're aware of the deadline and glad it's happening. >> if he doesn't provide some sort of proof, don't we risk going down the road to september 16th, 2016, when candidate trump had to stand in front of the microphones, after years of insinuating that the president obama was not born in this country, the phony birther thing, had to say he was born here? don't we risk running down this
7:14 am
road again? >> i'm not surprised you're conflating the two. i fail to see a comparison. we're talking about a big agenda here. i know it's your show and you can talk about what you want. but there's 20 million people just last year who said no to obamacare. 6.5 million of them paid a penalty. >> can i stop you right there? the media did not bring up this topic. president trump did. >> i didn't say that you did. but there's so much going on that the american people want to hear about. >> all the more reason to question why it is that he would bring that up and then therefore throw the discussion -- it isn't like something that a blogger wrote. it's something the president of the united states accused his predecessor of tapping his phones. >> and it's under investigation. >> so, in fairness, the media are just trying to find out if there's any voracity to the claims. >> i understand. but there are so many other things going on as well that matter to americans. they heard what he said in his joint session. they're still listening to that message. they're happy that a health care plan that has left millions with skyrocketing premiums and no care -- there's literally
7:15 am
thousands of people in this country that can't use the insurance card because they can't afford the premiums and deductible s >> paul ryan was asked, how many . people are going to lose health care insurance as compared to obamacare. he couldn't come up with an answer. can you give me a number? >> yes. the fact is that what speaker ryan said below that comment was he can't give you an answer because he doesn't know what people will do. >> because it's up to them. >> it's up to them. once they have more choice and freedom in the marketplace, they'll have tax credits. those not on medicaid and don't have employer-sponsored plans. he doesn't know what they will do. we know what they will have. they will have more choices and competition. >> but access to health care is different than having health care. >> we want people to have care. we want everybody to have care. and there's inequitable tax treatment, those who -- 175 million americans who get the health insurance through the employers. those on medicaid will continue to be on medicaid.
7:16 am
and the health savings accounts, the interstate across lines. the ability of mechanics and farmers and small business owners to pull their sources together and get health care together. >> another important issue to people. economy, jobs. got a good jobs report. the unemployment rate has dropped to 4.7%. we know during the campaign when these very same jobs figures would come out, the president said they were fake, the obama administration was making them up and they were a hoax. sean spicer was asked about this. let me play you his response. >> i talked to the president prior to this. and he said to quote him very clearly. they may have been phony in the past. but it's very real now. >> okay. it's like a funny line but, in a sense, he can't even answer that question with a straight face. because he knows that the president is saying numbers that were fake when they were under his predecessor are now real because they're good. what gives? how do you explain that? >> if you are one of the miners or somebody in manufacturing, construction, that's receiving one of these 135,000 new jobs
7:17 am
created in the president's first full month on the job, savannah, that's the only number that matters to you. >> why wasn't the miners' jobs real under president trump but not real under president obama? that's what you just said. >> and half the media laughed at the comment. it was a lighthearted moment. we have less than 5% unemployment. you have ceos coming to the white house and making announcements to unleash investments, to create new jobs. >> that's not what the issue is. >> not take jobs to mexico. >> pardon? >> that's not what the issue is here. the issue of credibility. he is saying these are -- the labor department has been doing these numbers the same way for decades. love them or hate them, think they're right or wrong, the process hasn't changed. the method has not changed. so, the question is, where is the credibility there? saying those numbers were fake but now they're real because i happen to be in the office. >> the credibility is in the $7 billion intel took off the shelf and is going to unleash the investment because they're working with president trump to do so. the credibility is in the
7:18 am
235,000 new jobs created. in other words, he's the president now and we're looking at what this president is doing in short order. >> with all due respect, what savannah is asking is, if we couldn't believe what he was saying during the campaign, if he was calling these numbers fake, when they were real, because they're real now, where is the credibility in that? >> he's also talking about things that were fake. like you can keep your doctor if you like your doctor. you can keep your plan if you like your plan. there was a lot of fakery going on for people that were promised something that never came to be. and health care is a prime example of that. he's saying to americans who feel like they can't get care, they can't get coverage. we have five states in 1,021 counties, roughly one in five americans in this country live under one choice. that's not a choice if you only have one insurance provider. >> in fairness that, doesn't answer the question. you're mentioning health care. on this issue of the job numbers, fake then, real now. >> i'm talking about numbers that matter to americans right now.
7:19 am
and president obama is his legacy. president trump is just getting started. but the stock market likes his presidency. job creators like his presidency. the miners do. he rolled back a terrible regulation that was hurting them. and they're along with manufacturing and construction, industries that are benefitting in an outsized way in his first initial jobs report from february, his first full month on the job. >> kellyanne, thank you for being here. we appreciate it. >> thanks. let's bring in mr. roker. now, it looks bad on that. that's just a graphic. >> we have real numbers to talk about, as far as blizzard is concerned. a blizzard is defined, required conditions for three hours, sustained winds of frequent gusts, 35 miles per hour or more, blowing snow and dropping visibility to less than one-quarter mile. we are going to have a good portion of the northeast and new england that will probably reach that. we're going to be watching this very, very closely over the next 48 hours. we're going to get to your local forecast coming up in the next 30 seconds.

7:31 am
enough? peter alexander with the story. good morning. >> reporter: hey, matt and savannah, good morning to you. that intruder is due in federal court today. this morning, we're getting a better sense of how he got over the white house grounds, climbing a fence on the side of the treasury building, seemingly unnoticed for up to 200 yards and got approached as he was coming up to the back door. a stunning breach at one of the most secure residences and the first since trump back office. reaching the south of the presidential mansion. it was just shy of midnight friday, while the president was home. the intruder, wearing a backpack scaled a security fence between the white house and the treasury building. hiding behind a pillar before he was stopped on the south lawn. court documents say the suspect, jonathan tran, told a secret service officer, i'm a friend of
7:32 am
the president. i have an appointment. officials say tran was carrying two cans of mace, a u.s. passport, a laptop computer, a book written by mr. trump and a letter to the president about russian hackers. he's been called schizophrenic. trump praised his security the next day. >> secret service, fantastic job. it was a troubled person. very sad. >> reporter: at a white house reception in january, the president complimented joe clancy, who retired a week ago. >> what a job. from day one, i have felt safe. >> reporter: over the last two years, several people have tried and succeeded getting to the white house grounds. including fence-jumper omar gonzales, who was armed with a knife in 2014, when he made his way deep into the white house. gonzales pled guilty in 2015. last year, the secret service added small stripikes to the tof the fence at the white house. and the federal agency signed
7:33 am
off on plans to raise the height of the fence to 11 feet by next year. there are still a lot of unanswered questions. most significantly, how that spr intruder was able to go so far on the white house complex grounds before he was seen. the court documents don't make any mention of alarms sounding or being heard. the secret service is now investigating. matt and savannah? >> peter alexander in washington. thank you. let's go to san francisco, now, where the lyft driver who was attacked by bikers in a horrendous case of road rage is speaking out from his hospital . >> reporter: there's been no arrests in this case, even though the so-called biker gang is a known and dangerous presence in this area. as for the victim, he remains hospitalized here in fair condition. after the beating that nearly took alex quintana's life, this morning, his story is surviving.
7:34 am
>> i definitely was afraid for my life. >> reporter: it started when a gang on wheels took over a san francisco freeway for wild stunts. >> there's about 20 motorcycles involved, yelling at motorists. >> reporter: a dangerous scene familiar to bay area law enforcement, but not to quintana in his white camera. he tried to get around the group, when they befwgan to bre his side mirrors, causing this near-collision. >> i couldn't believe it was starting to happen like that. it was like, what did i do to deserve that? >> reporter: when he tried to pull over, he was boxed in. the bikers smashing his car windows. >> every time they hit the window, it was like, what the heck is this guy doing? and after it breoke, i'm like, oh, man. i have to get out and do something. >> reporter: that's when the real beating started. >> just going one after another. boom, boom, boom, boom.
7:35 am
>> reporter: on the ground, quintana feared for his life. >> the guy who thought i was trying to run him over, he had looked at me directly in the eyes and turned on his motorcycle. and ran over my leg. >> reporter: quintana's broken leg, needing multiple surgeries. the 35-year-old drives for lyft in san francisco, trying to earn money for his newborn. it was witnesses who came to his aid. >> they pulled up and told me, they saw everything. they're sorry they didn't get out of the vehicle to help or anything. like, they got it on videotape. >> reporter: images that captured his beating. and now, the video, he hopes, may lead to an arrest. a lyft spokesman tells nbc news, they are horrified by this incident. and this type of violence has no place in our society. matt and savannah, back to you guys. >> miguel, thank you very much. thank goodness there is video. let's move to the weather.

7:44 am
and go straight. don't twist and do this. learn your legs and throw it off to the side. very, very important. or, as our production manager grace just said, have one of your kids do it or hire a kid to do it. a lot of power may go out across the northeast and mid-atlantic states during this big storm. so many deaths this year from people who put their generators inside their house. you can't do that no matter what. some people think it's okay to even put it in your garage. you can't do that either. even with the garage doors are open, they run on gas according to the cpsc. one of the leading causes of carbon dioxide deaths in the home from generators. you want it 20 feet from your house. hugely important tip, life and death. by tomorrow morning at this time, we're going to have ice and snow. so many of you go to the store to by calcium chloride, rock salt. stores are running out. we had a hard time finding this yesterday. here's a really cool home remedy
7:45 am
to do it yourself. take some hot water. we have some hot water in here, some rubbing alcohol, put it in like that. take some dish soap, guys. stick some dish soap in, mix it together with whatever you got at home. i got a spaghetti strainer here. then when you have ice and snow on your walkway for example, wait until there's ice and snow here, pour it right over. i've tried this, guys. it actually melts the snow and ice in case you can't find that stuff in the store. we're going to go inside the house now for a couple of other tips. come on in. how are you? welcome. see you soon. okay, when you come in, you have your boots on and obviously it's full of snow and ice like mine are right now. you don't want it to get all over your floors. take a storage bin like this, get rid of the bin part. you want the lid. pour some rocks on top like that. pour rocks on top of the lid, spread it out. put the boots right on top so they're a little elevated. now you're not going to ruin
7:46 am
your hard would the floowood fl. the water is going to seep into the ledge. also super annoying is how wet these are. an hour later you want to go back outside, you change your socks, it's comfy, then this is wet. take some newspaper, shove them inside the boots. they're going to sop everything up and be comfy as soon as you want them. thermostat, keep nighttime and daytime the same so your pipes don't freeze. this is an obvious one, guys, but it's worth it. fill up with batteries today. if you're anything like me, when you need the flashlight, you don't have batteries. consider that the no duh tip of the day for you guys. >> jeff, you had us until you started dumping the rocks in the house. >> it works. >> okay. >> it could also make like a ter air yum or something like that. >> don't put it in the house. put it on the lid. >> you could also put it in the deeper part of the bin, couldn't you, so it doesn't get all over the house?
