betty nguyen. in a case ripped from the pages of a novel, an active duty u.s. navy commander has been charged with spying for a foreign nation. according to multiple news sources, including "the washington post," lieutenant commander edward c. lin faces several counts of espionage and other charges including prostitution and adultery. there are reports that he passed secret information to china. although nbc news has not independently confirmed those reports. the navy has withheld his identity but "the washington post" reports a u.s. official disclosing it under condition of anonymity citing the sensitivity of the case. according to his heavily redacted charge sheet released by the navy, lin is accused of stealing secret information, quote, with intent or reason to believe it would be used to the advantage of a foreign nation. he reportedly had access to sensitive u.s. intelligence, and served on some of the navy's most sensitive intelligence gathering aircraft. lin, who was originally a taiwanese national and later became a u.s. citizen, was
apparently arrested eight months ago, but information about the case was highly secretive and did not become available until a preliminary military justice hearing on friday. now, to the campaign trail, and trump 2.0. this comes as the front-runner is fighting for delegates, trying to secure the nomination before the convention. but for now, the focus is centered on next week's new york primary. nbc's jacob rascon reports. >> reporter: there is little doubt rochester, new york, is trump territory. >> there is no rally like a trump rally. and nobody gets the people. that i can tell you. >> reporter: sporting a new haircut, and a sharper message. >> rochester lost 90,000 jobs since 1970. 4,000 jobs in the last six months. >> reporter: but even some true believers here say, they're ready for trump 2.0. >> he says it like it is. and i think he means what he says. but it just doesn't come out the
right way. >> reporter: so a change would be okay with you? >> for trump? a little bit maybe. >> reporter: on "meet the press," trump's new right-hand paul manafort confirming a change of course. >> trump was doing very well on a model that made sense but now as the campaign has gotten to the end stages a more traditional campaign has to take place. >> reporter: predicting there will be no open convention. >> i'm confident, we have several ways through june 7th to go over 1,237. >> reporter: while the boston globe, foreshadowing a future trump presidency with a fake front page they hope to never have to print. mass deportations, riots, trade wars, the editorial labeling trump's vision deeply disturbing, and profoundly un-american. >> the whole front page is a make-believe story. which is really no different from the whole paper for the whole thing. i mean the whole thing is made up. >> reporter: back in battleground new york, the show must go on. ♪ singing trump for president >> reporter: for trump faithful, not just a front-runner, their
political savior. >> that was jacob rascon reporting. the democratic candidates continue to battle in the big apple. hillary clinton's adopted home state. and brooklyn-born bernie sanders. sanders hopes to keep the momentum from his string of recent victories, even as clinton keeps climbing in the delegate count. meanwhile, president obama is speaking out about clinton's continued e-mail scandal. nbc's kelly o'donnell brings us up to speed. >> reporter: with delegate-rich primaries around the corner, this was no day of rest. >> we are taking on all of the establishment. >> let's do this together! thank you. >> reporter: hillary clinton and husband bill put their faith in african-american congregations. making visits to six churches in harlem and queens. >> she was your senator, she was a great secretary of state. >> reporter: clinton aligned herself with president obama and implied bernie sanders had not been as loyal. >> we have someone who rejects
the idea that president obama has made progress. doesn't give him the credit that i think he deserves. >> reporter: sanders made the rounds on four sunday talk shows. and challenged clinton's suitability to be president, but not her qualifications. >> she may have the experience to be president of the united states, no one can argue that, but in terms of her judgment, something is clearly lacking. >> reporter: although senator does not raise it, the issue of the private e-mail server resurfaced in a new interview with president obama. he was asked if he still thinks there was no compromise to national security after classified documents were found on that clinton server. >> hillary clinton was an outstanding secretary of state. she would never intentionally put america in any kind of jeopardy. >> reporter: helpful praise, though the president has no endorsement planned. staying in new york -- sanders got a taste of coney island.
>> i hope that on april 19th we will have the largest voter turnout. >> reporter: while sanders has won seven straight contests, clinton holds the lead in the big blue states that vote next. kelly o'donnell, nbc news, baltimore. in an nbc news exclusive, our chief foreign correspondent richard engel asked cia director john brennan if his agency would consider using harsh interrogation practices, ones that would include water boarding, which critics say is torture. president obama banned it in 2009. but donald trump and ted cruz have said that they are open to it. director brennan said he would not authorize it, even if ordered by a future president. >> absolutely i would not. i would not agree to having any cia officer carrying out waterboarding. >> you can catch more of richard's exclusive interview with director brennan tonight on "nbc nightly news." bond has been set at $1 million for the man accused of killing former new orleans
saints defensive end will smith. it appears to have started with a car accident leading to an argument between the drivers, and ended with smith's shocking death. nbc's dan schenemen has details. >> reporter: near the scene of the fatal shooting saints fans paid their respects to one of the most beloved players in team history. >> a good guy. everybody loves him. and just an absolute shame. >> reporter: police say it was about 11:30 saturday night when smith's mercedes was hit from behind by a hummer driven by cartel hayes. smith and hayes exchanged words and then investigators say hayes pulled out a gun and began to shoot. >> we located mr. smith partially inside his vehicle, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to his body. he was later pronounced dead on the scene. >> reporter: smith's wife was rushed to the hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. cardel hayes is now behind bars, charged with second degree murder. bond was set at $1 million. hayes' attorney believes there's much more to this story. >> one of the parties besides
mr. hayes -- >> reporter: will smith played college football at ohio state and won a national championship there. drafted by the saints in 2004, the defensive lineman spent nine seasons in new orleans, and he helped the franchise win its only super bowl. when he left football, he and his wife settled in louisiana, where he was active in the community. a community that is now in mourning. dan schenemen, nbc news. well the reigning masters champion in what can only be described as a meltdown for the ages. the leader jordan spieth hits his fourth birdie in a row on the 9th. and then trouble begins. a missed putt here on 11. then to the 12th, and amen corner where he makes a major mistake sending the ball in ray's creek. there it goes. still on the 12th. spieth hits this one fat and drops another ball. yep, into the water. now to his fifth shot on par 3. watch where this one goes. wait for it.
in the sand. he finished with a 7 on the hole. meanwhile, danny willett has managed to take the lead with a couple of clutch shots, including finishing strong on the 18th hole, capturing the lead in the masters. while waiting in the clubhouse to see if spieth could catch him he finds out that he's won the masters talking on the phone. and a bitter moment for spieth, who was last year's winner as he presents the 2016 coveted green jacket to new masters winner danny willett. only the second englishman to take the title. congratulations. some of the best highlights included a number of players not even in the running on the 16th hole. we're speeding it up a bit so you can see this one first up, shane lowry hits a beauty right in the cup. also on 16, here's davis love iii. and you guessed it, he hits a gorgeous shot. right in the hole. but, the shot of the day may just be this one by south
african louis oosthuizen. >> i have never seen an afternoon like this. >> all right. >> that's one. >> i mean, seriously. what are the chances of that? that is the third hole in one on the 16th in the same day at the masters. just incredible. and a quick mention, golden state warriors have tied the '95 -- '96 season for most wins. golden state can break the regular season record with a victory in their home finale against the grizzlies on wednesday. so stay tuned. and straight ahead, bill karins with some severe weather
to tell you about for today. plus, a historic moment this morning at the site of the atomic bombing in hiroshima. they said it wasn't possible... to make a sunscreen you can apply to wet skin. a wrinkle cream that works in one week. and a shampoo that washes away the residue hair care products can leave behind. but we did it. no wonder dermatologists recommend neutrogena® 2 times more than any other brand. we're always re-thinking what's possible in skincare.

xfinity watchathon week starts april 18. the greatest collection of shows free with xfinity on demand. welcome back to "first look." storms moved across oklahoma late last night bringing heavy rain and golf ball sized hail. the system almost produced a few tornadoes. a couple spinoffs but none hit the ground. near the texas panhandle the roads looked like they were covered in snow as large hail fell. hail so big, even cracked this storm chaser's windshield. there goes an insurance claim. imagine those stories they have with those insurance agents. last night the storms were in oklahoma, north texas, now arkansas. still some lightning with them on interstate 40 and up 44 near springfield going to get a good soaking here shortly. there's also a batch of light rain and light precipitation through pennsylvania upstate new york even mixed in with some snow showers as that cold air finally exits. you may need the umbrella in areas from philadelphia to new york city. but it's going to be very light. not a lot of heavy rain.
all the bad stuff today will be late this afternoon through this evening. we've got about 13 million people at risk of severe storms. that goes from houston all the way to little rock. but it's this enhanced orange area that has the best chance of seeing any isolated tornadoes. we're not going to have an outbreak today but we have a chance for a few at least. we will have a lot of large hailstorms just like we did yesterday. so unstable air is in place. the timing of this, here's 6:00 p.m. all these little red cells, an indication of where we could see those thunderstorms. and then overnight as it heads towards mississippi it weakens. heavy rain possible, maybe some flash flooding, too. we can watch that tomorrow morning. it was such a cold weekend, one more chilly day from minneapolis through the great lakes. we're starting to warm it up. 60 in new york today and the red sox have their season opener in boston today. should be all right, 58. >> thank you so much for that, bill. it was a solemn day in hiroshima, japan. secretary of state john kerry along with members of the g-7 laid a wreath at the hiroshima peace park memorial. . he is the highest ranking u.s. official to ever visit the place where an estimated 140,000 people lost their lives in the
usa-bomb attack during world war ii. now to belgium, prosecutors announced a startling revelation on sunday. the terrorist who carried out the deadly suicide bombings in brussels last month originally intended to strike a major financial district in paris. but, authorities were moving too quick with their investigation so the terrorists rushed to attack belgiubelgium. all this according to mohamed abrini. he confessed to being the man in the hat seen on airport surveillance. he's now charged with mass murder in brussels and paris. now to baton rouge, louisiana, police have made an arrest in a shooting that killed two college students on sunday. officials say 22-year-old earnest felton began shooting at another man outside of an apartment complex and two students were caught in the cross fire. investigators are now awaiting the results of the ballistics tests. and some lighter fare, in d.c. police are searching for one hungry burglar. why? after he broke into a five guys burger joint, and then he started to make himself a late night snack.
some people, i tell you. all right, john kasich's challenge to conservative states. plus bruce springsteen and now bryan adams taking stands against new state laws and canceling shows. (avo) i've always been a dog person. my name is barbara and i make dog chow natural in davenport, iowa. now that i work there and see all of the care and the ingredients that go into it. i value the food even more. i feed yoshi dog chow natural because there's no artificial colors, preservatives and it's made with real chicken. he's got so much energy. his coat is so shiny. and he just seems over all happier. i'm so proud to make dog chow natural in davenport, iowa. trust number one doctor recommended dulcolax constipated? use dulcolax tablets for gentle overnight relief
made in the past five years has actually come from his own money. "the post" analysis shows that many of the gifts were actually in the form of activities such as free rounds of golf at his club. governor kasich is weeking out about north carolina's new anti-lgbt law. >> so everybody needs to take a deep breath, respect one another, and the minute we start trying to write laws, things become more polarized, they become more complicated. obviously i don't want to force people to violate their deeply held religious convictions. but we'd have to see what that's all about. i wouldn't have signed that law from everything i know. can we figure out just how to get along a little bit better and respect one another? >> speaking of the law, reaction to bruce springsteen canceling a show in the state yesterday had north carolina representative mark walker saying, quote, i consider this a bully tactic. another musician is following the boss' lead. bryan adams has canceled his upcoming show in mississippi over their recently passed
anti-lgbt bill writing quote i find it incomprehensible that lgbt are being discriminated against in the state of mississippi. and were you thinking hillary clinton's metro card mishap last week was perfect for "snl"? well, it was. >> the new york city subway is the best way to get around. it's been awhile. is this a working metro card? is this -- i'll just go in the old-fashioned way. >> a cab is the best way to get around. >> she's not alone. i've ricocheted off that turnstile many times. that's your morning dish of "scrambled politics." you know, jane, right? you felt it yourself? >> absolutely. >> happens all the time. jane is here this morning. always good to have you. talk about ted cruz. he is really mastering this
delegate game. how is he doing this? >> ted cruz has had a strong organization. it's getting in to every state to make sure that his supporters are the ones getting elected to these delegate positions that are unbound. that aren't dictated by state results to go and vote for them at the national convention. it's a hard thing to do. you have to know every single state's peculiar rules and get your supporters elected state conventions. these aren't the places that usually have to get their personnel but they're doing it well. >> he's done his homework is what you're saying. >> yes. and it is not easy. even reporters trying to understand these rules have had to study quite diligently. >> well, it is infuriating donald trump. i mean, he is mad. so i think what he's trying to understand is, a lot of people, too, am i losing support? or is it just a case of him not being as organized as ted cruz? >> i think it's a big part of organization. and it's also the people who don't like donald trump are the people who are likely to get those delegate spots. so delegate positions usually go to party activists, party insiders who work sort of in
fargo, north dakota, perhaps and they work for the party all year long and as sort of a reward they get sent to the national convention to support their constituents. now, those people have been republicans for 20, 30 years. they're not likely to be donald trump supporters, new to the party, brought there by donald trump. but there's a lot of organization problems. we saw the guy in charge of getting delegates on the colorado slate this weekend, got fired last week and they had to bring in a new person halfway through the delegate selection process for donald trump. >> it's going to be interesting to see how this shakes out. i want to shift gears just quickly because in an nbc news exclusive we heard the cia director say he will not allow waterboarding, even if future presidents order it. now is this something that trump and cruz are really going to use to stir the pot? because they said they're open to it. >> you know, ted cruz said he wouldn't widely use it. i think that's his way of not condemning it but not making that a big issue. donald trump's made this a huge issue. he says waterboarding would be just fine by him.
i think this is an opportunity for donald trump to bluster and say, you're fired, you know. i mean he's going to say i'll get someone else in there who will listen to me. we've seen him time and time again say, they'll listen to me. whether they will, i think it pushes toward the general election conversation. if you have the cia director condemning something you'd put as a central campaign position, does that look good in a general election? i'm not sure it does. >> thank you, jane. we appreciate your insight, as always. and just ahead, have gas prices finally bottomed out? well we'll go to cnbc's landon dowdy for the answer. from bank of america to buy a new gym bag. before earning 1% cash back everywhere, every time and 2% back at the grocery store. even before he got 3% back on gas. kenny used his bankamericard cash rewards credit card to join the wednesday night league. because he loves to play hoops. not jump through them. that's the excitement of rewarding connections. apply online or at a bank of america near you.

the markets will try to get a positive start out of the gate this week. the stocks coming off their worst week since february. investors will get detail sales, inflation and the consumer. and earnings season kicks off with results from alcoa and jpmorgan. meanwhile gas prices keep edging higher. the average price of regular unleaded rose eight cents in the past three weeks to $2.10 a gallon. and analysts say that that mostly had to do with an increase in demand. more people on the road as the weather improves, and the days are longer. also move over batman and superman there's a new boss at the box office. melissa mccarthy's new comedy "the boss" taking the stop spot with $23.5 million. that narrowly beat out batman versus superman. mccarthy stars as a business mogul trying to make a comeback after being convicted of insider trading. >> all right, landon thank you so much. finally russia's black sea resort of sochi has smashed the world record for bikini skiing. >> there are guys there, too.

anything. this is the only time. >> donald trump slams the primary system after getting outhustled by ted cruz in the hunt for delegates, with one trump strategist accusing the cruz campaign of using, quote, gestapo tactics. meanwhile bernie sanders picked up his eighth win in a row and kept the heat on hillary clinton. he also had some words for her husband after last week's run-in with black lives matter protesters. plus collapse in victory. the front page of "usa today" sums up the story at this weekend's masters. a new father heads home with a new jacket. it's 5:30 here on the east coast, 2:30 out west, this is "way too early." hey there, everyone. good morning, it is monday april
