7:00 am
i i think people made up their i think people have made up their minds about the e-mails. >> this is bigger than watergate. >> you are fascinated with sex. >> we have to stop this pipeline. good morning and welcome to sunday "today," i'm >> good morning and welcome to "sunday today." i'm willie geist. we are nine days away from a presidential election. in both the clinton and the trump campaigns say they want to know more from fbi director comey after the revelation on friday that the fbi has flagged e-mails related to the investigation into hillary clinton's private certainer
7:01 am
development quote very troubling and 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 in just a moment. and later, justin timberlake with a couple of different movies coming out. which sit down and talk about his rise from the mickey mouse club to 'nsync to solo superstar. >> what was the strategy as you left 'nsync and went solo? >> i don't know. it can bring me out of a -- a lot of courage. and at the end of the day you know that you're getting the opportunity to do what you love. >> good conversation with justin a little bit later. and before we get to the presidential campaign, we begin with some breaking news overnight. officials in central italy assessing the damage after a powerful 6.6 magnitude earthquake struck the area early this morning. buildings crumbled to the ground
7:02 am
as if the whole city fell down. the quake could be felt up to 100 miles away in rome. so far, no one has been 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 one killed 300 people. an update this morning on what sparked a huge fire on board an american airlines plane on friday. just moments before the plane took off. the ntsb says a turbine disc broke loose and sent debris flying as far as half a mile away. 20 of the 161 passengers on board suffered minor injuries. all were treated and relied from the hospital. and the cleveland indians now just one win away from a world series title. the indians beat the chicago cubs last night, 7-2 behind ace pitcher corey kluber. so far, the cubs have lost both games at wrigley field. they get another shot tonight with game 5 in chicago.
7:03 am
it will be the franchise's first world series win since 1948. now to the race for the white house. the fafrom the news on e-mails related to the nd new investigation into hillary clinton's private e-mail server. the revelation coming less than two weeks before the election. a move secretary clinton calls unprecedented. let's get the latest from hallie jackson, she is outside trump tower here in new york city. good morning. >> reporter: hey, there, willie, good morning to you. this morning we are learning that the fbi director his decision to notify congress of that new information. a decision that apparently defied the department's recommendations sources tell us. now, he is under fire as hillary clinton's campaign looking to get off defense goes on attack. the newest all-out assault from hillary's campaign, not against her rival, but fbi director james comey. >> it's not just strange it's unprecedented and it is deeply
7:04 am
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. which cited long standing policies about sharing sensitive information so close to an election, according to senior officials familiar with the discussions. but those sources say comey decided 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 not clear
7:05 am
since fbi agents have not analyzed the e-mails yet. 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 chair calling comey's letter light on facts, heavy on innuendo. >> there's no evidence of wrongdoing. no charge of wrongdoing. no indication that this is even about hill trail, backup from bill clinton. >> sometimes the difference between the way people look and the way they are. >> reporter: the new allegations puts a new spotlight on huma abedin and her husband. >> i don't like huma going home at night and telling anthony weiner all of these secrets okay? i had no idea it would be that
7:06 am
fizzling out. clinton aides say they don't see this latest news affecting the electoral landscape, but trump's team, willie, sees it differently and 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. willie? >> thank you very much. we have donald trump's campaign manager. kellyanne conway is with 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 thousands of e-mails according to nbc's reporting but they don't know the content. in fact, haven't even read them. trump said this is the biggest scandal than watergate. do you know something about the contempt of the e-mails that the public doesn't know? >> no, of course not. but when hillary clinton says this is unprecedented what we should remind ourselves is what
7:07 am
private server in the first place. she can't escape that, she's playing the victim now. they're doing an all out assault on jim comey. i mean, really shooting the messenger, plus. a full body slam all day yesterday. i think that's a risky strategy as well. he's remind ourselves, but for hillary clinton violating long standing policies setting up this private server, deleting 33,000 e-mails, failing to turn over the additional 17,000, bleaching them so that they would be permanently deleted, we wouldn't be in this position and by the way, willie, she could ask huma an e-mails. she could ask her right now and tell all, so she can call into the "today" show right now and tell you, willie geist, here's what the e-mails. >> this is an open investigation. it's on the eve of an election that's why the doj recommended director comey not to proceed with this letter because everyone knew it would be leaked out to the public. 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? >> well, comey was in an
7:08 am
had he sat on the information, he may well have been interfering with the election as well. because if you go and you vote for hillary clinton, she becomes the president of the united states. then this investigation is reopened or i guess a separate investigation is launched, then what? she's already president and she's under the cloud of corruption. >> the country has gotten whiplash since it waly should be no prosecution. that was his recommendation in that case. donald trump suggested the process was rigged there, so have you changed your opinion about jim comey and his ethics? >> no, these are two separate things. on july 5th, jim comey told the public we won't prosecute hillary clinton and he undercutted that by calling her reckless and careless in her
7:09 am
congress under oath, willie, and says, well, she didn't have one server, but -- one device, she had in devices, they destroyed evidence. yes, in fact, under oath, there was national security and classified information being exchanged on that server. so he undercut his own judgment. this is different. this is a separate investigation and i think it was an impossible situation. let's not let him be the victim too much either though in that had he done a thorough job to begin with and made sure that devicead this position. this is on huma also. she clearly signed that she confirmed that she had turned over all the devices. that was what was demanded of hillary's team and one we have with 15,000 e-mails. i think it's ironic that this stems from another investigation, has nothing to do with the republican party or the trump campaign into weiner's
7:10 am
contents of the e-mails before election day? >> i have no idea. i know that the general nature of these types of investigations they take a long time. so they're pressuring comey, that's not possible. given the short time. >> let's talk about the trump's path to victory here. you know it's been a tough path, there are many swing states that have gone toward hillary clinton that are swinging in her favor, leaning that way. many people pointed out interesting where donald trump is spending his time, places like colorado. somewhere like michigan. where hillary clinton if you look at the polling averages has pr are you spending your time in the right places? >> yes. he does up to three different states per day. she doesn't do that usually. so he was in three states yesterday, three states the day before. he'll be in a few states today including new mexico where the polls have tightened of late. and michigan on monday. but he'll go back to pennsylvania many times. so we see the map as we have seen it. florida, ohio, north carolina, iowa look good for us. r places we're going.
7:11 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 next nine days that's going to say, you know what, i actually do like her and i 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.
7:12 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 >> 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
7:13 am
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 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.
