6:00 am
. we have reached a deal to end the shutdown. >> i intend to plead not guilty. >> i was not disrespectful to mr. phillips. >> to his family just like we said we were going to do. >> on to super bowl liii they go. good morning. welcome to "sunday today." january 27th. i'm willie geist. the 35-day federal shutdown is over but the problems it's causing is lingering. visit os at many washington traer attractions are still finding
6:01 am
closed days and workers wondering when they will get their back pay and are we headed for another shutdown over the border wall when the funding bill conspires expires in less weeks? yes, it's winter and supposed to be cold but not like this. the midwest is about to face some of its coldest temperatures in 25 years. windchills as low as 60 below zero. we will have a look ahead for millions of you. a sit-down with william h. macy, the actor whose name conjures thoughts of jerry londongard a role so good macy told the director ethan cohen he had to get it or else. >> i said, nathan, you give this to somebody else, i'll just shoot your dog. i don't recommend that, folks. it's not a good thing to do. don't you, actors, don't do that, but it struck his sense of humor.
6:02 am
>> a sunday sit-down with william h. macy. harry smith also in another life well lived later in the show. what happens next? the federal government will be open tomorrow with the end of the shutdown. could we be right back here where we started, though, in less than three weeks? nbc correspondent kelly o'donnell has the later. >> reporter: a feeling and routine they have not none since before christmas. hundreds of thousands of federal workers are back on the job tomorrow with lump sum back paychecks the next few days. with the new normal a new countdown to the next budget deadline february 15th. washington's reboot is taking time. visitors to d.c. attractions still faced closed doors this week. >> we are here and we can't go to the smithsonians or any of the museums. >> reporter: the national park service resumes operations today
6:03 am
and the sismithsonian museums w open on tuesday. lingering fallout, a weary public. >> the function of the government is stay open. >> the white house, the president stayed home on friday and put this on twitter. harsh headlines jabbed at the president's handling of the impasse with a new deadline february 15th. negotiations with democrats will start immediately. will not be easy to make a deal. both parties very dug in. conservative radio host mark levine is not pleased, but will give the president more time. democratic presidential candidate senator elizabeth warren posted her expectations. >> let's be clear. in three weeks, we cannot hold
6:04 am
federal workers hostage again. that's no way to run a government. >> reporter: from impasse to indictment. seeking out cameras in ft. lauderdale, florida. >> i will lead not guilty and fight the charges. >> the president's long time political operative and colorful ally roger stone professed his innocence. >> i find it extraordinary that i am accused of lying to congress, which i most definitely did not do. >> reporter: federal prosecutors allege stone lied to congress and urged a friend to lie in connection with wikileaks s publication of stolen emails from wikileaks in 2016. the president and roger stone vr frien have been friends for decades and no surprise he talked about it. the key line is he says roger stone didn't even work for me anywhere near the election.
6:05 am
of course, part of the allegation is they were phone friends continuously even though stone did officially leave the campaign long before these allegations. prosecutors say he never really stopped working on behalf of the president, making it a thorny issue for this white house now. willie? >> kelly o'donnell, thank you very much. chuck todd is nbc political director and moderator of "meet the press." good to see you. >> well, good morning. >> the shutdown is over after 35 days and looks like nancy pelosi got the better of donald trump. did the president get anything out of this? is there anything he can say to his supporters, we won? >> i don't think is there a thing he can say. i mean, not at all. the only difference between the deal that he rejected on day one and the deal he took now is february 8th to february 15th. that's it. all that happened was he helped solidify nancy pelosi's place as
6:06 am
speaker. he helped, frankly, do what nancy pelosi has never been able to do which is establish herself as the leader of the democratic party. in many ways, if you were to look at what is the biggest accomplishment that came out of this? i would say it belongs to speaker pelosi and it belongs to her ability to be the leader of the party and keep the party united. >> in a lot of ways, chuck, we are back where we were in december where it looked like trump might step away from the wall to get some kind of border security. he heard from conservatives who said, wait a minute, you promised us this wall and one of the big reasons we voted for you and why you're president of the united states. president trump is hearing from conservatives he caved, he lost. if we believe it, what makes us believe we are not back here in less than three weeks. ? >> i think the reason we won't be back here as far as a shutdown is, i think congressional republicans have no patience for the shutdown. i'm actually fairly optimistic we will see legislation that
6:07 am
will eliminate the ability to have a shutdown. i think there is that much exhaustion from this. mitchell mcconnell likes to say there is no education in the second kick after mule. this is like the 15th kick of a mule to congress at this point. i'm optimistic about that. i think he is going to do this national emergency because he has put himself into this box. i had somebody very close to him say to me earlier this week, for some reason the president thinks his read my lips moment, referring to george h.w. bush, no new taxes. he think no new wall is read my lips. a year ago it wasn't but now it is. in an odd way, he has made it this important to his base, where a year ago, i think his base would have had more flexibility. >> that is why he is going to have trouble walking away from the wall in a couple of weeks. you're right. he might have to go to the national emergency to get that. let's talk about the people damaged and hurt of the last 35
6:08 am
da days. federal workers many missing a second paycheck on friday. we know from government shutdowns in the past that a lot of these employees have not been made whole. it took several years to get that money back. what does it look like to a federal employee this morning? >> here is what it is. we have somebody here on our crew that has a lot of familiarity with, for instance, how voice of america works and they were one of those impacted by the shutdown. i can only speak to one agency here. but there is an attempt to essentially expedite everything that would make this upcoming friday a special pay period that would give everybody all of their back pay. but this is just for full-time government employees item rig. . >> right. >> subcontractors and things like that like that subsidized. people who take care of the garage that are contractors.
6:09 am
some folks may not be made whole and i'm pretty confident why i think congress is actually going to pass a bill that might make a shutdown impossible to ever happen again. >> it's outrageous. let's hope has is the one good thing that comes out of this 35-day shutdown. roger stone, the long time political aide to president trump who started in an official capacity on the president's campaign and moved to an unofficial capacity in 2015 was arrested in the early morning in florida and indicted on seven counts. what does this mean to donald trump as someone so close to him and what does it mean as we get a window again into the mueller investigation as we read through that indictment? >> i think for the president this is another test of personal loyalty, right? remember michael cohen? i'd take a bullet for the president? >> yeah. >> the indictments come and then, all of a sudden, he is cooperating and perhaps becomes the democrat star witness in congress.
6:10 am
roger stone has said, i'll never bear false witness and, already, he has indicated, well, let's see what the prosecutors have. the point is i think for the president, he is going to find out just how loyal is stone going to be to him and he is probably asking himself, how loyal have i been to stone over the years? does he have reason to be worried about me? >> right. michael cohen, of course, cooperating now with that investigation. we will see about roger stone. chuck, thanks so much. a lot of ground to cover this morning on "meet the press." he will talk about what is next with the shutdown with house minority leader kevin mccarthy and house democratic caucus chairman hakeem jaeffreys. in the phillips, two bombs exploded inside a mass in a cathedral. people were killed and some were injured in the southern philippines. no one has yet claimed responsibility. the region has hit repeatedly by terror attacks from a muslim
