7:06 am
president obama won. let's talk about the democrats. hillary clinton facing her own troubles this morning. more stolen e-mails, this time purported to include transcripts of speeches she gave to goldman sachs. nbc's andrea mitchell has more on that angle. andrea, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. hillary clinton riding high in the polls but now facing that rolling wave of release by wikileaks of stolen campaign e-mails. including now allegedly what are purported te transcripts of those goldman sachs speeches that she gave before she was a candidate. hillary clinton's motorcade on sunday whisking her to practice for her final debate. but how can she prepare for the drip, drip, drip of thousands of pages of stolen e-mails released each day by wikileaks, especially purported transcripts of those goldman sachs speeches she gave before running for president. bernie sanders wanted to see them during the primary
7:07 am
let everybody see. >> reporter: now clinton talks about cracking down on wall street. >> we still have to crack down on the big banks. >> reporter: but as a highly paid speaker, clinton appears to have told the bankers, "the people that know the industry better than anybody are the people who work in the industry." she also said new banking regulations after the 2008 crisis were passed for political reasons. and the jury is still out on reform law. a stolen e-mail wikileaks said was to campaign chairman john podesta reveals, clinton decided to oppose the tpp trade deal she once supported even before seeing the final version, contrary to her latest claims. an advisor writing, "if she weighs in now without viewing the document, some in labor might wonder why she didn't just
7:08 am

7:09 am
chuck, good morning to you. >> good morning, sir. >> for months and months, hillary clinton refused to talk about or release the transcripts of those speeches to goldman sachs saying that she would do that some time when donald trump released his taxes. now we know, allegedly, what was included in her comments to gold plan sax. do you have a better sense of why she didn't release them? >> i sure do. this was -- i think this would have been more problematic for her in the democratic primaries. look, the democratic party is moving in a direction much faster to the left than hillary clinton ever was. what wikileaks -- what we have learned out of all of this, matt, on one hand, it sort of reinforced what we already thought we knew about hillary clinton. but politically and ideologically, this being exposed during the primaries with bernie sanders, that basically she was making a calculation to move to the left. i think it would have been absolutely damaging in the primary and possibly cost her the nomination.
7:10 am
have been that damaging in the primary, the question then is how damaging, if at all, is it now with three weeks to go until the general election. >> i think in a general election, much less damaging, number one. there are some voters who are going to be reassured that she's in the middle here a little bit, number one. and then second, remember who her opponent is. i think against another opponent this could be more lethal. i think against donald trump, obviously he blocks out the sun with all of his problems. trump. he spent the weekend really honing in on this idea and this message that the whole system is rigged. but if you really think about it, that's the message that not -- not a message to win, it is not a message to turn out voters, because, frankly, people might get depressed and think, why bother. it is a message to explain a loss. >> that's right, savannah. i think it is also a message as a way to not lose either. to not look like a loser. this is going to be donald trump
7:11 am
this is going to be donald trump defining victory in his own way. we've got -- we all know donald trump pretty well, i think, the three of us. one thing he will never admit is losing or failing at anything. to me, this feels like donald trump's way of deciding this fight for the presidency will make him look like a winner even if he gets trounced. >> chuck todd, thank you very much. want to mention, nbc news will bring you that third and wednesday night. coverage begins, 9:00 eastern time. big news overseas. the army launch be an attack of mosul. nbc's chief foreign correspondent richard engel is with troops on the move in northern iraq this morning. richard, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this is a major operation where we are, we've been hearing outgoing rockets and artillery
7:12 am
. it began in the early morning hours at around 60,000 iraqis are taking part. it is also the main focus of the some 5,000 u.s. troops in this country. the biggest offensive against isis anywhere so far has begun. this morning iraqi forces, backed by american air power, and artillery are on the move. it seems like every iraqi in uniform and every vehicle is being brought in for this operation. armor to the front line is moving very quickly. but american commanders say it could slow down considerably if and when they meet resistance. heading into battle, but their mood is upbeat. as the attack convoy stopped briefly, some troops started dancing. and they're getting a warm reception from iraqi civilians. many villagers came out to welcome the troops as they advanced toward mosul where more
7:13 am
in by isis as human shields. but then, as the convoy drew closer to mosul, an ominous sign. huge plumes of black smoke shut out the sun. isis torched these oil wells, wells it used to fund its terror, rather than allow them to go back to the iraqi government. many iraqis want revenge for over two years of isis abuses. "we will be victorious in god willing," a soldier said. how long it will take depends on what isis has in store for these troops. iraq's prime minister says this mission has one goal -- to liberate mosul from isis, and god willing, he said, we will win. savannah? matt? back to you. >> richard engel in iraq, thank you. we have an update now on a tragic story out of lexington, kentucky where the 15-year-old daughter of olympic sprinter
7:14 am
weekend. police announced last night they arrested a 21-year-old man in connection with that case. trinity gay was shot outside a restaurant early sunday when a group of men in two cars opened fire on each other. trinity was not in either car. she later died at a lexington hospital. like her father, trinity was a sprinter. she ran for her high school team. now to traumatic video we showed you last week, a great white shark busting into a with the driver still inside. this morning that diver is telling his story for the first time. nbc's keir simmons has the latest on that. goo. >> good morning. this is the video that went viral. inside that shark cage had been a lone diver. this is the view from the boat from terrified onlookers. until now we hadn't married from the diver himself. but this morning he tells us this was not the only shark he
7:15 am
furiously, a huge shark inside a shark cage. the animal panicking, trapped. what you can't see is the chinese diver who, just moments earlier, was inside that same small cage. the shark's bloody body horrifying witnesses. watching from the boat. . >> is there anybody in there? >> reporter: seconds later he resurfaces, uninjured. >> i just feel very lucky out and nothing gets hurt. >> reporter: the terrifying sequence lasting less than two minutes. taking the bait, slamming into the cage. >> before he broke the cage, his nose has been locked in the small window. i just tell myself, hey, come on, you don't want to go into my cage. but maybe less than a second after he broke the cage. >> reporter: the diver thrown out into shark infested water.
7:16 am
of the other sharks swim below me. >> reporter: up above, panic. someone opens the hatch. and finally, the diver emerges. >> i don't think he want to attack me. he just panic. i think it's just accident. >> reporter: shark cage close encounters occur when sharks are hunting food. it can look like a shark attack. in fact the animal is unable to swim backwards. but experts warn tourists no the to take risks, like in mexico earlier this year. a diver touching a after this latest frightening incident, the diver says he'll keep diving. >> i will get back to the cage next day. >> he says the shark was so powerful, he was thrown out of the cage and left holding a piece of the torn-off metal. he says that he was not that frightened because everything happened so quickly. matt and savannah, i'm not sure everyone would say that.
7:17 am
not so great outside either. shark infested waters. back to the video we showed at the top of the show. traumatic rescue caught on camera. cell phone video shows palm bay police officers and several bystanders rushing to free the trapped driver as the suv burst into flames. afterhe locked arms forming a human chain. eventually pulling the driver up hill to safety. miraculously, he only has minor injuries. let's turn to dylan now, first check of the weather. al is still on the mend. doing well. >> he pick a good week to recover. it is going to be in the 80s, sunny. it is fantastic this week across the northeast. in fact across most of the country it is going to feel like late august rather than mid-october. summer-like temperatures thanks to this area of high pressure pushing the jet stream way up to the north.

9:09 am
they said was from you. it was krispy kreme doughnuts from harry connick. you were on my local news show when i was 15. >> you were 15 working at local news? >> no. i'm kidding. my age. no. chicago. i was a local news anchor, fox chicago. we had krispy kremes sent to us. >> how many krispy kremes could you eat in a sitting? >> i ate the entire box. what's in a box? took me the whole two-hour show and i ate >> you don't realize until after the fact. >> terrible decision. >> there's a dozen in a box. you actually went and opened a second box zp. >> i busted open a second box. >> i busted open a second box. >> so this part of the show, harry, we go through these different topics that people are talking about all around the country. one of them is beyonce. since you are one of the greatest performers of all time -- >> oh, thank you.
9:10 am
she was performing and her ponytail got hooked in her earring. blood started spilling down her ear. she never stopped performing. what's the craziest thing when you wanted to stop? >> i just remember being on stage when you have bronchitis or you have the flu. and the people who have paid money to see you really don't care. you have to give them their about on "american idol" a lot. the lot of the kids would come on and say i don't feel well. my theory is, well, if you're well enough to be here, then don't tell us. you have to go ahead and do it. if you're sick, you should stay home and take care of yourself. but beyonce i think is a tremendous performer so it is not a surprise at all that she just didn't make a big deal. >> does your ear hurt?
9:11 am
still can't wear earrings. >> your ears are not pierced? >> yeah. but i've never had one rip out of my ear before. >> you mean it ripped through the lobe of her ear? >> mine was almost through the lobe and we had to get this guy to sew both of my ears up. i still can't wear earrings. >> how many earrings is too many? my daughters are old enough to decide for themself. they say i want a double >> i have one, two, three, four on this side. >> four. >> i have two on this side. but i want five. i don't think there is a limit. >> just whatever you're feeling. do you ever wear four on the air. >> >> i do. i let this one close up because every time i pick up the phone to answer, i hit it. it hurts. it hurts. >> do you sleep with those in? >> yeah. seems like a lot of work to take them all out. >> these i leave in. hopefully next week i can finally get these pierced again.
9:12 am
everything? >> i sleep with them. >> it doesn't hurt when your head's on pillow? >> sometimes. i got to cope with it. cope with it. >> we got a double take for you this morning. >> aren't you proud of me for trying to understand? >> you genuinely seemed interested in this conversation. >> i am. >> you are outnumbered in your house. >> jill is in the house. georgia, my oldest, is working with me on the show. charlotte is my and kate my younger daughter is in school. three female dogs and a female cat. >> you don't have a choice. >> i don't have a choice in the matter. i haven't had a choice since i met my wife. that was 26 years ago and i have been choiceless since. i got y'all, brothers. >> you're interested in earrings. >> so this we saw this morning. it made us do a double-take.

really crispy. >> that's hard to do. >> i'll start with a breast that has the bone and the skin. it is hard to buy boneless skin-on breasts. we're going to take it off which is a really simple technique. a sharp paring knife, cut down along the ribs here. >> is this just a simple one-two kind of thing? >> yeah. basically just follow the curvature of the ribs. >> that's intimidating, to be honest. >> you are intimidated right now? >> little bit. little bit. >> it's really >> you cook a lot, tamron? >> i do cook like four times a week. i've never gotten comfortable deboning. >> you can't buy a breast, boneless with the skin? >> no. >> come over and poke it 30 or 40 times in the skin. this is a key step. you have a lot of fat under here and you have to render out the fat giving it a bunch of channels to come out.

[ speaking french ] >> sounds so nice. >> what is with that voice? had. >> we know it is beautiful. both of these guys can't stop talking about it.
9:50 am
this revival? >> we're still in the early days, so we're still kind of going, oh, okay, here we go. a bit nervous and we're still rehearsing during the day. but i think it is going really well. people seem to be enjoying it, don't they. we're sort of finding our feet with it and really starting to have serious fun. be naughty and dangerous and all the things they're supposed to be. that's good fun. >> were you guys ever overwhelmed during the rehearsal process? what i understand is that y'all didn't have a whole lot amount is dialogue is immense. >> i have never called line in my professional life once. calling line is when you can't come up with a line and you call line and someone hopefully reads the line to you. on our first preview, i broke that and i called "line" about halfway through the show. i must have taken like a seven or ten-second pause which on stage is an eternity.
9:51 am
like ten seconds, i'm out, i need the line? >> it's pride. i'm never going to do it. after ten seconds i just went, line? i didn't say it loud enough so the girl didn't hear me so i had to do it again. line! she couldn't understand what i was saying. i actually called "line" three times. >> i tried to help him out. i really did. >> what did you do? >> his f l he missed was maybe belle rush can do it. >> how about the rush? >> that's terrible. >> horrible. >> liev, i read that -- or i think you heard you say at one point that you were aching to act this play with janet. where did that come from? was it just from seeing her? >> from watching her work.
9:52 am
times. but then something sent me a video of the production that she did in london when she originated this production, and i don't know how to describe that. you just see somebody. i think the best metaphor is like sports. i think people might understand that. you see another athlete doing something and you go, i want to play. i want to work with them. i want to do something with them. i was right. there is -- we have a similar kind of acting. we have a kind of tenacity and a kind of energy and wit and it's -- it's just we're really well matched. i'm having the time of my life. >> janet, your turn. she's like let me soak it in. yeah. the same. i'd seen liev on stage. obviously in his film and tv stuff. he's just a brilliant, brilliant actor and i thought that would work. that's fun. that's dangerous.
9:53 am
>> being able to finally have like level eye contact with a woman. yeah. >> you're very tall. >> you did first walk out and i thought am i sitting low or are you just very tall. >> no. i'm really tall. people follow me on streets. women do this all the time. they look at me, they see me coming and they always do it, they always look at my feet to see if i'm wearing shoes. >> see the things you learn on this show? thank you so much. this is "today" on nbc.
