10 or 12 years old. >> does it mean we have short attention spans? i don't know. >> michael jackson has died. >> farrah fawcett has died. >> south carolina governor mark sanford -- >> another big story on the heels of the one before it. >> i think we've all become accustomed now. there's always another big stories on the heels of the one before it. it seems anthony weiner is forcing the nation to relitigate the entire e-mail controversy and putting hillary clinton's chances of winning the presidency in serious danger. just watch vice president biden learn about weiner's involvement for the very first time. >> i don't know where these e-mails came from. >> apparently anthony weiner. >> well -- oh, god. anthony weiner. >> you can just picture biden repressing that news and going to his happy place, which i

witt. with eight days to go, the bomb shell announcement has rocked the presidential campaign. last night the fbi obtained a warrant to begin reviewing newly recovered e-mails as they race to learn if they are tied to clinton's case, an inquiry that was completed in july with no charges filed, despite a stinging assessment that clinton was extremely careless. then on friday comey sent a letter to congress informing them, "in connection with an unrelated case the fbi have learned of the existence of e e-mails. i agreed the fbi should take steps to allow investigators to review these e-mails to determine whether they contain classified information, as well as assess their importance to our investigation." soon after law enforcement officials revealed the discovery was from a laptop shared by huma abedin and anthony weiner. the fbi began investigating the former congressman in september
2:03 am
for an unrelated case, allegedly sending inappropriate text messages and pictures to an underaged female. weiner admitted terrible judgment but a victim of a hoax. october 3rd agents seized his electronic devices, where they found hundreds of thousands of e-mails and included some that were clinton related. agents investigating knew in early october that messages recovered in the weiner case might be germane to them, but they waited until this past thursday to brief director comey. on sunday afternoon, a clinton aide told nbc abedin does not have access to the computer in question, which is currently with fbi officials, who are now reviewing a portion of the hundreds of thousands of e-mails for evidence related to clinton. the clinton campaign responded with outrage and said it won't change the outcome of the investigation or election for that matter, accusing comey of violating protocol in handling such matters amid an
2:04 am
election season. fbi officials gave the doj a heads-up on thursday. the message from the justice department in response, according to anonymous washington post source, we don't comment on an ongoing investigation and we don't take steps that would be viewed as influencing an election. that official went on to tell the paper, "director comey understood our position, heard it from justice leadership, it was conveyed to the fbi and he made an independent decision to alert the hill. he's operating independently of the justice department and he knows it." the clinton campaign said it was light on facts, heavy on innuen innuendo, and overblown. also saying the e-mails were never withheld by clinton or the campaign, are not necessarily to or from her, and it's likely at least some of the duplicates of ones already reviewed. >> some of you may have heard about a letter that the fbi director sent out yesterday.
2:05 am
it's pretty strange to put something like that out with such little information right before an election. it's unprecedented, and it is deeply troubling. now, of course, donald trump is already making up lies about this. i think it's time for donald trump to stop fearmongering, to stop disgracing himself, to stop attacking our democracy. we can't let him get away with this, can we? >> fbi director comey's letter on friday has overtaken the conversation in the final days for the white house and given new confidence to the campaign of donald trump in what he has called a system rigged against him. >> the system is rigged. and i've been saying it for a long time, but you know what, what happened today, starting
2:06 am
with the fbi, maybe the system will become a little less rigged. beautiful. i'll bet you without any knowledge there was a revolt in the fbi. i'll bet you there was a revolt in the fbi by what they allowed to happen with respect to hillary clinton. there was a revolt. now the fbi has found -- you're not going to believe this one, this just happened. another 650,000 e-mails. how do you get to -- i think that's called the mother load. i think they found them all. the 33,000 she deleted and bleached, i think, is going to be in the 650,000. but how do you have that many e-mails, what do you do, sit down all day and just keep
2:07 am
typing? hey, no wonder nothing gets done in our country. >> donald trump is far from the only top republican who is welcoming the fbi's developments with regard to clinton. house speaker paul ryan reacted on friday calling further investigation long overdue and adding hillary clinton has nobody but herself to blame. ryan renewed his call for intelligence agencies to suspend classified briefings to the democratic national nominee and speaking to young voters in nebraska yesterday, he warned them about the clintons. . tell all the young people here, something that you don't see or don't know because you didn't live in the '90s like the rest of us did, this clinton story doesn't change. it is -- it is scandal after scandal after scandal. we just don't know which one's coming next, and it is not what we want this country to become. so when you see what you are seeing with the new clinton
2:08 am
thing, you need to know that all of us who lived through the '90s have seen this movie so many times before, and we don't want to see this movie again. >> in early voter turnout, hillary clinton has a slim edge over donald trump in several swing states. at least 21 million people have voted across the country and so far registered democrats are outperforming in several states. according to nbc news data analytics as of yesterday, nearly 11 million votes have been cast in 12 battleground states. democratic voters have outpaced republican voters in nine of those states. in the final days of the 2016 election, donald trump's campaign is reportedly redirecting attention to traditionally democratic states. today he'll hold two events in michigan before going to wisconsin tomorrow. hillary clinton is holding events this week in ohio, florida, arizona, north carolina, and pennsylvania. clinton, who's putting increased emphasis on minority communities, has also taped a radio interview, which will
2:09 am
translate into spanish and air tomorrow on iheart latino. hillary clinton's lead over donald trump has narrowed as the election heads into its final stretch, continuing to hold a huge advantage over young voters, but a new usa today rock the vote millennial poll shows support has dropped six percentage points in the space of two weeks from 68% to 62%, and in that same time frame donald trump's support edged up by a point. also new polling from several battleground states, a new york times upshot siena poll shows 46% to hillary clinton's 42%. but the latest nbc news wall street journal poll show the candidates essentially deadlocked with clinton up by one point. in north carolina, clinton holds a six-point lead over trump among likely voters, 47% to 41%.
2:10 am
gary johnson has 8% and jill stein isn't on the ballot in the tar heel state. a tighter race in north carolina with clinton leading by three points, 48% to 45%. in pennsylvania, clinton holds an eight-point lead over trump. in arizona, trump is ahead by two points, 44% to 42%. clinton leads trump by three points in colorado. 42% to 49%. and in new hampshire, an inside sources new hampshire journal poll shows donald trump leading by less than two points. meanwhile, with just days to go until election day, donald trump spoke at a rally in albuquerque, new mexico. while there he erroneously claimed hillary clinton's immigration plan would cause hundreds of millions of people to come to the u.s. >> she wants to let people just pour in. you could have 650 million people pour in, and we'd do nothing about it. think of it. that's what could happen.
2:11 am
you triple the size of our country in one week. once you lose control of your borders, you have no country, folks. the immigration office also warned hillary's radical plan would result in the loss, think of this, of thousands of innocent american lives, and an uncontrollable flood of illegal immigrants across the border taking jobs and crime would be rampant. now to breaking news overnight. the intensive man hunt for the suspect wanted in the brutal double murder in oklahoma is over. 38-year-old michael vance was killed overnight following a pair of shootouts with police in western oklahoma, one of which police are describing as a fierce gun battle involving three troopers. a county sheriff was injured in one of the exchanges, but his injuries are nonlife threatening. vance had been on the run since october 23rd after he shot two officers, stole their cop car. he then shot another woman and
2:12 am
stole her car before allegedly killing his aunt and uncle, both of whom authorities say vance may have tried to dismember. still ahead, the chicago cubs kept their hopes of a world series win alive last night in game five. we've got all the highlights coming up. plus, we are getting a new look at the damage in italy after the most powerful earthquake to strike the country in 36 years toppled a number of buildings. those stories and a check on the weather when we come right back. to do the best for your pet, you should know more about the food you choose.

entire country goes to the polls. >> discovered on a laptop belonging to anthony weiner, one of clinton's closest confidants back in the spotlight. good morning, it's monday, october 31st. happy halloween, everyone, i'm betty nguyen alongside alex witt. the end of the presidential race seemed to be settling in for next week, but nothing has happened as expected this cycle and the fbi's letter about the discovery of new e-mails is no exception. last night the fbi obtained a warrant to begin reviewing the e-mails, an inquiry that was completed in july with no charges filed, despite a stinging assessment from fbi director james comey that clinton was extremely careless.
2:31 am
then on friday comey sent a letter to congress informing them the fbi has learned of the existence of e-mails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation. i agreed that the fbi should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these e-mails to determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to assess their importance to our investigation. soon after, law enforcement officials revealed the discovery was from a device once shared by top clinton aide huma abedin and her husband anthony weiner, now estran estranged. allegedly sending inappropriate text messages and pictures to underaged female. at the time weiner admitted terrible judgment but claimed he was the victim of a hoax. on october 3rd, agents seized weiner's iphone, ipad, and a laptop, where they found hundreds of thousands of e-mails, including some that are clinton-related. agents investigating clinton's private server knew in october
2:32 am
messages recovered in the weiner case might be germane to them, but they waited until this past thursday to brief director comey. on sunday afternoon, a clinton aide told nbc abedin does not have access to the computer in question, which is currently with fbi officials who are reviewing a portion of the hundreds of thousands of e-mails for evidence related to clinton. the clinton campaign responded with outrage and said it won't change the outcome of the investigation and won't cost them the election. they have accused comey of violating justice department protocol in handling such matters amid an election season. former obama administration attorney general eric holder writes, james comey is a good man but made a mistake. re-enforcing established policy. and the campaign dismissed the letter as vague, inappropriate, light on facts, heavy on innuendo, and overblown. the clinton campaign also says the e-mails in question were never withhold by clinton or the
2:33 am
campaign, are not necessarily to or from her, and it likely some are duplicates of ones already reviewed. doesn't give us any useful information, just serves republican attacks against hillary. >> i know most of you were surprised, stunned, puzzled. it is kind of revved up some enthusiasm, a little bit of righteous indignation when director comey went to congress and he was asked, okay, you said no reasonable prosecutor would do anything, tell us about the decision. he said, even that wasn't even a close call a month after doing that. this letter comes out friday. so i'm going to ask you this, are any of you going to be distracted? i tell you this, hillary is not distracted. . the latest tracking poll shows for nearly two-thirds of all likely voters the latest chapter
2:34 am
regarding the e-mail server makes no difference, but nearly a third say it has made them less likely to vote for her. still of those, just 17% are democratic party supporters, the rest are republicans or independents who lean republican. democratic leaders are also stepping into the fight against the decision regarding the clinton investigation with some calling on him to resign. in a letter to comey, harry reid writes, your actions have demonstrated a disturbing double standard for the treatment of sensitive information with what appears to be a clear intent to aid one political party over another. i am writing to inform you my office has determined these actions may violate the hatch act, which bars fbi officials from using their official authority to influence an election. patrick leahy, thomas carper, dia dianne feinstein sent a joint letter demanding more details from comey by today about his decision. they want information, including
2:35 am
details on the investigative steps taken and number of e-mails involved. congressman steve cohen called on comey to resign. the congressional black caucus defended clinton on saturday, questioning comey's actions. >> this letter, i read it over and over and over again. provides little new information to the public. all it does is give republicans a new basis of which to attack hillary clinton. why would the fbi director go so far as to send this high ly unusual letter? it does not make any sense to me. now, on top of that, you don't hear the director talking about any other investigation he's involved in. is he investigating the trump foundation? is he looking into the russians
2:36 am
hacking into all of our e-mails? is he looking into and deciding what's going on with regards to other allegations by the trump organization? >> all of this has given new confidence to the campaign of donald trump. at stop after stop throughout the weekend he railed against what he's called a system rigged against him. >> the investigation is the biggest political scandal since watergate, and it's everybody's hope that justice at last can be delivered. i have to tell you, i respect the fact that director comey was able to come back after what he did. i respect that very much. and when the other side is complaining and complaining and
2:37 am
complaining, there was no reason for it, because all of the crimes that were committed, something should have happened then. not now. was publicly reported that sources close to hillary clinton said, and she actually, i think, said it to the papers, that she was thinking of reappointing attorney general lifrmg and effectively, i guess, you'd call that a bribe. to cover up her crimes, she bleached and deleted 33,000 e-mails after receiving a congressional subpoena. i have a feeling they've just found a lot of them, don't you think? huma. they just found a lot of them. we never thought we were going

2:40 am
revelations into her private e-mail server during a rally in florida yesterday. instead, clinton kept up her attacks against donald trump, focusing on a washington post story from saturday that questioned trump's history of philanthropy. >> "the washington post" published a report that was truly stunning. it starts with the story of a ribbon cutting back in 1996 for a nursery school serving children living with hiv and aids in new york. unannounced and uninvited, guess who barges in, donald trump. he walks right up to the stage, he sat down in the seat that was being saved for a local developer who had made a generous donation. none of the people working for the charity knew why he was there. he wasn't a donor at all. he had never given a single dollar to help build the school. he just wanted people to think
2:41 am
he had. and a months-long investigation by "the washington post" found that trump had sought credit for charity he had not given or had claimed other people's giving as his own. >> "the washington post" says trump's campaign responded to the article saturday saying in a written statement trump has personally donated tens of millions of dollars to charitable causes, saying the campaign did not provide evidence of the donations when asked by the post. still ahead, a landmark deal for canada. we'll talk about a free trade plan that's gotten the green light. later, paul ryan as a comedic hero. neil patrick harris gives the speaker of the house a voice to broadway. don't worry, we'll explain.

let's turn now to business, where canadian prime minister justin trudeau signed a historic trade agreement with the eu today. joining us live from london to talk about this, nancy, what effects will this deal have on the future of both economies? >> well, the fans of free trade will tell you the pact could boost trade in the multibillions, so that is good news, but from a political standpoint, it's also very good news for canadian prime minister justin trudeau, who as you mentioned flew into brussels to sign the deal, because just a few days ago there were fears the pact was going to be held up by opposition in belgium. we're talking about a province holding it up, a province of just 3.5 million people or so, so this is extremely good news, not just on the free trade economic standpoint, but also when you talk about future trade deals from the eu, potentially with the uk, and what a trade deal they may be able to negotiate once the uk actually leaves the european union.
