7:13 am
want to open up. i do think there would be an opening. >> this was leaked. these three pages of that tax return from 1995 were sent to the "new york times." they say there was some sort of postmark on them that identified trump tower so that's either an insider or someone with a flair for the dramatic. >> right. we heard from one of the "new york times" reporters this morning on "morning joe" that there is an investigation under way to figure out how that stamp ended up on the envelope. these old school the way these documents ended up in "the new york times" in-box. they wrote on the envelope that they came from trump tower. on the campaign you have to deal with the situation you have. they have to explain this billion dollar loss and why they haven't paid taxes but there will also be a parallel operation under way to figure out how these documents left trump tower. >> that's a criminal issue"the
7:14 am
>> i would warn the trump campaign if they spend too much time arguing about how they got out it looks like they're trying to hide something which is in direction contradiction to rudy giuliani and chris christie calling it genius. >> all right, guys. thank you. the only vice presidential debate tomorrow night, live coverage starts at 9:00 p.m. eastern, 6:00 pacific. turning now to the deadly train crash in new jersey last week. it happened in hobokhoboken. investigators are have now in at the controls but they've run into a problem when it comes to the train's black boxes. nbc's tom costello has that part of the story for us. tom, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this train station is so unstable, investigators have been using a drone to survey the train in its final resting place. this morning we still don't have much new information about how fast this train was going or in fact what happened. >> reporter: this morning, photos from the ntsb showing the extensive structural damage
