6:00 am
was there a quid pro quo the answer is yes. >> trump doesn't want to be the nominee. >> he has stepped down from royalty. >> good morning, welcome to "sunday today" on this >> good morning, and welcome to sunday november 24th we're coming off two weeks of public testimony in the impeachment inquiry, where witness after witness implicated rudy giuliani in an effort to work a shadow deal with the ukrainian government
6:01 am
he has insisted he's done nothing wrong in ukraine, while working on behalf of his client, the president of the united states this, while the president's former national security john bolton, a man congress would like to hear from, is teasing he may be ready to talk a live report from the white house and chuck todd just ahead. then in our sunday spotlight, as democratic presidential candidates campaign against iowa, there is one farmer they all stopped to visit, harry smith stopped to see him, too and later, a sunday sit-down with actress kristen bell as the wildly anticipated an naimated november frozen 2 hits movies this weekend >> i actually don't feel any pressure because i'm just a firm believer that if you bake a cake on monday and you use the same ingredients on tuesday, chances are it's going to taste great. >> a sunday sit-down with kristen bell, plus our sunday closer at the red hot nightclub that is changing the lives of
6:02 am
all those people on the dance floor. those stories and another life well lived all a bit later in the show let's begin with the impeachment inquiry and president's personal attorney, rudy giuliani, justing out at joe biden on saturday, while denying he did anything wrong, despite two weeks' worth of testimony to the contrary. nbc's hans nichols is at the white house for us hans, good morning >> reporter: good morning, willie on friday president trump called rudy giuliani a great crime fighter, but the former prosecutor defending himself yesterday, suggesting later he said sarcastically, but suggesting he had an insurance policy against president trump if he, quo, threw him under the bus. but he didn't withdraw his attacks against joe biden or john bolton. >> president trump's personal attorney, rudy giuliani, defending his own role in digging up political dirt on the bidens in ukraine. >> i don't know. >> i did the right thing i represented my client.
6:03 am
>> while suggesting the former vice president was acting like a mobster. >> poor immigration of the god father. >> and also attacking former national security adviser john bolton. >> for john to say i'm a hand grenade, he's an atomic bomb. >> bolton now in control of his twitter account, signaling he's willing to correct the record as he sees it. >> are you going to provide any information as to why you were fired? >> i resigned. >> but repeatedly avoiding any discussion of impeachment or ukraine, while suggesting that trump's fate should be decided at the polls the presidency and control of the house and senate will all be decided in less than one year. it's time to speak up again, he tweeted. as bolton awaits a court hearing that could compel his impeachment testimony, a federal judge has indicated that she plans on rule by monday on whether former white house counsel don mcgahn should testify before the house with the white house judiciary committee prepared to take up the proceedings when congress
6:04 am
gets back from thanksgiving next month. >> i would love if ambassador bolton chooses to come and testify. >> meanwhile, the president quoting newspaper editorials that democrats haven't made their case, tweeting none of this will move the needle for anyone and now dems in swing districts head home for thanksgiving to hear from voters >> hans, another story that involves the president directly, the secretary of the navy speaking out on saturday amid reports he was considering quitting his job what's the story there >> reporter: so richard spencer who is the navy secretary, said that he didn't threaten to resign nbc news had reported that he was considering it he's up at a conference in canada the back story to this has involved eddie gallagher, who is a navy seal accused of war crimes on thursday, the president weighed in on twitter saying that eddie gallagher should not have his trident, his seal pin removed. there's been back and forth recently eddie gallagher on fox news basically accused his chain of command of insubordination
6:05 am
the president encouraged everyone to go ahead and watch that interview we'll see if the president weighs in yet again, even though the line from the navy is that they haven't received an official order from the president. they're not treating his tweets as an official order willie. >> gallagher knows the president has his back so far. hans nichols at the white house. thanks so much chuck todd is nbc's political director chuck, good morning. good to see you. so a deep breath here at the end of two long weeks of public testimony in the impeachment inquiry. a long list of witnesses told a very similar story about what happened in ukraine and the involvement of the trump administration in that deal. the witnesses we haven't heard from, john bolton, mike pompeo, mick mulvaney on the list as well what do you expect to happen from here, chuck, for the american people watching this, taking it in what are the next steps? >> well, it looks that democrats have decided they've done as much in the public hearing aspect as they can do within a
6:06 am
reasonable period of time. i guess is the way to put it and you brought up all these witnesses that we haven't heard from and i think they would argue it's going to take too long to hear from them and timeliness here matters, too. so it means that we would likely after thanksgiving see about a week or two of hearings in the house judiciary committee, maybe one of them would be public. then you would see the indictment, which is also known as an article of impeachment, setting up a senate trial in january. but i think democrats have to ask themselves with all of the -- on one hand i think the hearings were very successful, both in revealing that there's a lot more we don't know they've proven quite a bit, and maybe in a court of law they could win that case. but they still have a political bar that they haven't met yet and a political argument that they might be able to win if people like bolton testify so i think it's a dilemma that they're facing here. they haven't met the political bar yet. we can see it in the polls they may have met a legal bar.
6:07 am
so what do you do? right now i think they've decided to move forward with the process. it's an interesting political decision. >> we'll have a lot of questions for chairman schiff on "meet the press" coming up there was a snapshot moment of this specific era, but specifically about the impeachment inquiry, which is that long-time friends joe biden and lindsay graham at odds this week as lindsay graham, after the end of the public testimony, announced he's helping to launch his own investigation into what happened in ukraine with biden he asked the state department for documents about biden and burisma. joe biden said on the campaign trail he is, quote, embarrassed for his old friend, lindsay graham what's going on here >> reporter: i don't know. it's an interesting decision by senator lindsay graham, who in november said i don't want to turn the senate into a circus by investigating hunter and joe biden. and this was at the beginning of the month. i think he said it ot november 5th. and now he is indeed at least threatening to do that
6:08 am
look, there's plenty of people in washington that have been trying to figure out what lindsay graham is up to, is this politics, is this south carolina conservatives? whatever it is, bomb line is, i think that is a split now between lindsay graham and joe biden, probably a rift that will never get healed no matter where this heads going forward. >> lindsay graham clearly has chosen the president over his old friend, joe biden. chuck, thanks so much. we'll look for more on "meet the press," as we always also, when chuck is joined by house intelligence committee chairman adam schiff, who has been presiding over the impeachment hearings supreme court justice ruth baiter ginsberg could be released from the hospital today. she was admitted to john hopkins on friday with chills and fever. she has endured lung scares. justice ginsberg is the senior member of the court's liberal

saturday and it's mason rudolph who has been hit hardest in the wallet the cleveland browns and the pittsburgh steelers are back on the field today for the first time since their nasty broawl. >> that's one of the worst things i've ever seen. >> the nfl slapped wide-ranging penalties on both teams. pittsburgh steelers quarterback racen rudolph fined $50,000, the most of any player, for his role in the fight with cleveland browns defensive end miles garrett, who has been suspended indefinitely on wednesday, rudolph apologized for his actions. >> bottom line is i should have done a better job keeping my composure in that situation, and it falls short of what i believe it means to be a pittsburgh steeler and neb of the nfl. >> in all, the league disciplined 33 players earlier this week garrett told league officials at an appeal hearing that rudolph directed a racial slur at him just before the drawl, according to espn rudolph's attorney calling garrett's claim in the report a
6:11 am
lie, as well as reckless and shameful an nfl spokesperson telling nbc news, we looked into it and found no such evidence on thursday, the nfl rejected his appeal garrett, apologizing on twitter, in part writing i know what i heard. whether my opponent's comment was born out of frustration or ignorance, i cannot say. but his acts do not es cues my lack of restraint in the moment and i regret the impact this has had on the league, the browns and our fans an age-old rivalry will be tested when the two teams face off in pittsburgh. >> it will certainly be a game to watch and the bengals will host the dolphins. now in san jose 44 degrees, it's going to be another quiet day with a mild afternoon. we are waking up to a cool

6:13 am
sustainable farming. his place has become a must-stop for democratic candidates. his message, iowa can help cure the climate ills that plague the planet. >> it's all coming up on "sunday today. and as we head to break, our photo of the week, bei bei, enjoying one last snack. he took a trans continental flight on a private plane provided by fedex, arriving on thursday at his new home in china, as part of the original agreement between the american and chinese government when you shop small you help support your community - from after school programs to the arts! so become a regular, more regularly. because for every dollar you spend at a small business, an average of 67 cents stays in the community.

morgan is back for our highs and lows of the week. as lieutenant colonel vindman testified on tuesday. a woman sitting over his left shoulder disstratracted viewers tipping back her coffee aggressively. she takes further to drink every last drop. the caffeinated photo bomber is the reporter, emma duman. like many of you, these are the jolts to get through these days this week. she woke up with her 19 months old daughter and needed the coffee badly. the nearly vertical ankle she took, it was a narrow cup and i was really trying to get the last drop. i don't typically drink coffee

6:20 am
dent. musk told the audience the truck is bullet proof and the windows are unbreak lk. they were not going to shoot the gun in the crowded room. they had tesla's lead designer to prove again the windows simply can't be broken. >> oh my god. well, maybe that was a little too hard. >> oh man. it didn't go through. >> whoops, both windows broke where the guy throwing the ball at them. elon did not seemed too worry as he laughed and went back to business. he said in a tweet, excuse me, they got 146,000 orders for that truck. >> on that unbreakable truck. >> a for effort?
