7:02 am
>> you had one big bad pick. >> go wildcats, next year. >> we'll talk about the tournament in a while. top story, so much for spring. it officially arrives on sunday but it's not going to feel that way, especially on the east coast. temperature about to plunge and the storm is brewing. this could bury parts of the region in snow. al, you broke my heart. >> just when i thought i was out, i pull you back? >> exactly. what's going on? >> here's the deal, we're watching this low pressure system kollcoming from the southeast. severe weather saturday morning there. by the afternoon, it's raining in washington, d.c. and cold filters in. a rain/snow mix will start for washington, d.c. saturday evening. snow showers sunday morning for new york city. we have the american model and the european model. they're fairly close early on. as we get to sunday afternoon, sunday morning, you can see they
7:03 am
the european model is closer and the american model is further away. by sunday afternoon, snow from new york city all the way up to maine. heavy snow will continue into new england. gusty winds and it's going to be cold. here's what we're hooklooking at as far as accumulations. new york city, philadelphia on up into the northern new england, 2 to 4, maybe 5 inches of snow. heaviest snow around eastern massachusetts on up to eastern maine. anywhere from 10 to 12 inches. the american model, almost no snow whatsoever. northern maine hits the heaviest. we've also got some in the appalachians. here's what we think. looking at all the models, putting them together, we're going to say about 2 to 4 inches from washington, d.c., new york city and west of boston. boston will see 4 to 6 inches. the heaviest snow will be eastern maine and eastern massachusetts. guys, right now, again, the storm hasn't formed yet.
7:04 am
it's the difference between the european model and the american model, continuing together. >> you have a story on those models and how people come up with that later on. >> that'll be in the 8:30 half hour. >> thank you. the presidential race is dominated by the stop trump movement this morning. the republican front runner now the target of conservative leaders. they're trying to block his potential nomination. he's also being targeted by the hacker group known as anonymous. hallie jackson is on the trail for us with more on all of it. good morning. >> good morning. this morning, as the stop trump movement tries to regroup and figure out a new way to slow down the front runner before the arizona primary, new fallout from the hacker group as it takes aim against trump. not just his politics, but his personal life. >> reporter: now claiming credit for hacking donald trump, the group anonymous, calling him a
7:05 am
>> we're serious about stopping any foreright by the fascist donald trump. >> reporter: they claim to have posted his cell phone and social security numbers but those have been flowning around online for months. law enforcement is investigating those who tried to illegally hack the candidate's account. anonymous probably trying to get attention for their so-called war on trump. in washington, a different battle to try and stop him. less public, too. after a secret huddle of frustrated conservatives, reassessing how to slow trump down. these attack ads haven't seemed to do more. their plan, first call for a unity ticket. if that doesn't work, plot out strategy for a contested convention. paul ryan acknowledging that scenario looks likely. >> we're getting our minds around the idea that could become a reality. >> reporter: now, taking aim at trump for warning what could happen at a convention if he leads in delegates but doesn't get the nomination.
7:06 am
i'm representing millions of people. >> nobody should say such things, in my opinion, because to even address or hint to violence is unacceptable. >> reporter: while the stop trump movement wants unity, they're not saying who conservatives should unify behind. ted cruz and marco rubio teaming up, shot down. >> i'm not going to be anybody's vice president. >> rubio praising cruz as conservative. >> reporter: this poster of "liar, liar" puts ted cruz's head on jim carrey's body. >> if you kill ted cruz on the floor of the senate and the trial was in the senate, nobody can convict you.
7:07 am
the manhattan apartment of donald trump's son eric. he had a letter sent with white powder inside. sources say it was nobody harmful. it's yet another sign of how much attention trump's candidacy and his family are getting. >> hallie jackson, thank you. nicolle wallace is an nbc news policeal analyst and former adviser to the mccain-pallen nccain-palin campaign. >> good morning. >> we talk about this trump thing as it has a ceo and a logo. it's fractured. while trying to get itself together, hasn't it almost missed a moment? >> after new hampshire, the only way to derail trump was to put him in a one on one race. to have everybody coalesce behind one candidate. whether it was ted cruz or john kasich or marco rubio. they were all still in the race at that point.
7:08 am
the central weakness of the stop trump movement is it never had a horse. it never had a strategy. it never built consensus around anal kerntive alternative. >> we just saw lindsey graham. i asked him what's the temperature in hell because he says hell will freeze over before i support ted cruz. that's where they are as a party, hard choices. what does it say about ted cruz, that he may be the person in the best position to stop trump, but he can't get the party behind him totally? >> it would have been better if he'd not lost all five contests tuesday night. if he had won, if he had a stronger showing this week, you might have seen more people get behind him. the truth about the anti-trump movement exists behind these things. the temperament of trump. two, the substance. he's not a conservative in the minds of the conservative movement. three, they're worried about him
7:09 am
chief role. hillary clinton would be wise to go after the first group, people worried about his temperament and maybe the third, people who think he can't be a confident commander in chief. right now, the stop trump movement's only hope is he doesn't reach 1,237. >> do you think republicans fear donald trump or dislike him more than they dislike hillary clinton. >> nobody in the elite establishment would ever admit to being open to hillary clinton. as we've seen time and time again, they're not the story. they're not the deciders, if i can borrow a word from my favorite former president. the voters are the deciders. a lot want to vote republican. who want to see change. but who are uncomfortable with the idea of trump and cruz at this point. >> thank you very much. good to see you. something else on the president's plate, a historic trip to cuba. "nbc nightly news" anchor lester holt will be live in havana on sunday. he will have complete coverage. now to more on the fight over the president's pick for
7:10 am
it is entering a new phase today. pete williams is at the court for us this morning. good morning to you. >> good morning. senators have left town for the easter break, giving merrick garland a break. but republicans insist his nomination isn't going anywhere. >> reporter: it's a supreme court nominee's ordeal, meeting senators one on one, hoping to win them over for a confirmation vote. so far, the welcome matt is out only at the offices of democrats, like harry reed, the minority leader. republicans insist there won't be any hearing or vote because the next president should choose the nominee to succeed antonin scal scalia. the democrats say normally, the nominee would be up for a vote by memorial day. >> hey, guys, do your job. give him a hearing. ask him questions. >> reporter: some republicans say they're willing to meet with
7:11 am
set up yet, a arizona's flake suggested voting on garland while president obama is in office if a democrat is elected president. >> i would rather have a less liberal nominee, like merrick garland, than a nominee that hillary clinton, if she were president, would put forward. >> reporter: but the republican leadership put out the word that an idea is not an option, and most in the party are following along. >> i don't think we should be moving forward on a nominee in the last year of the president's term. if it was a republican president, i'd say that. >> reporter: the white house released this photo of president obama meeting with garland. he told supporters to make themselves heard in demanding confirmation hearings. >> the supreme court's remaining eight justices are back in the courtroom next week. white house supporters are launching a website to push for garland's confirmation. we need >> thank you. we're hearing more from the alleged american isis fighter
7:12 am
still held there, and what he's saying about how he ended up with the terror group may surprise you. nbc's chief foreign correspondent richard angle has the story. >> he says he joined isis but then had a change of heart. a u.s. official told us this morning that because of the americans alleged time with the organization organization, he does have intelligence. >> reporter: he's the first alleged american isis fighter to surrender to kurdish troops in iraq. >> i'm from the united states. i studied criminal justice in college in virginia. >> reporter: in a taped confessional aired on kurdistan 24 tv, he described how he traveled through turkey, linked up with isis and was transferred
7:13 am
>> the life in mosul, it's really, really bad. the people were controlling mosul and don't represent the religion. >> reporter: these statements were made as he was held in captivity. >> i didn't really support their ideology ideology. that's -- at that point, that's when i decided i needed to escape. >> reporter: to escape from isis, he said he crossed battle lines in search of kurdish forces, knowing they are close allies to the united states. >> at the time, i made a decision to go because i wasn't thinking straight. on the way there, i regretted.
7:14 am
you know, i wanted to go back to america. >> reporter: a u.s. official told nbc news isis is facing a growing problem of desertion, as the group comes under mounting military pressure and now a rare accusation of genocide by the united states. but the charge is mainly a moral condemnation. because the u.s. is already fighting isis, it's unclear if the rhetoric will change u.s. policy. >> a u.s. official told nbc news that american personnel have not yet met with him in custody, but that the kurds are debriefing him and passing that information along to the americans. back to you. >> richard engel in istanbul, thanks. it got tense on capitol hill over the flint water crisis. resignations were called for michigan's governor and the chief of the epa. >> people who put dollars over the fundamental safety of the people do not belong in
7:15 am
governor snyder. >> this was a failure of government at all levels. local, state and federal officials. we all failed the families of flint. >> governor rick snyder testified that michigan's department of environmental quality assured him that the water from the flint water was safe when, in fact, it was contaminated with dangerous levels of lead. both the governor and epa administer expressed remorse. mccarthy said because it was under a state emergency manager, it prevented federal officials to be able to, quote, jump to the rescue. there were scary moments for passengers thursday on a flight from north carolina to new york city. take a listen. >> just got hit by lightning. >> roger, everything okay? >> yeah, don't send us through there again. it's pretty bad. >> the american airlines flight was preparing to land at laguardia in new york when it flew into turbulent skies and
7:16 am
the plane was diverted to jfk airport, a few miles away. officials say it landed safely. 55 passengers on board. the faa will investigate the incident. a hearing is set today to revoke bail on labrie, the student convicted of sexually assaulting a classmate. morgan radford has been following these developments. >> another unexpected twist. owen labrie admitting his missed his curfew but it was for a good reason. a judge must determine what happened and what's the punishment. >> reporter: this morning, owen labrie's future on the line again. a judge will decide whether the prep schooler who is accused of sexual assault against a 15-year-old classmate should be put behind bars for violating conditions of his bail.
7:17 am
jumped into him on a subway around 1:00 p.m. and tweeted their conversation. >> had to take a bus to dartmouth and be home by 5:00 p.m. >> reporter: a source said labrie thought the conversation was off the record. prosecutors saw the exchange and filed a motion in court, saying he violated the conditions of his bail. he's supposed to be at his mother's vermont home between 5:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m. he traveled from new hampshire to boston at least eight times since october. the question facing the court today isn't where he went but when he made it home. >> most judges would look at that and say, tough. you knew what the rules are. you've been convicted of a crime. follow the ruling for your bail. >> reporter: labrie's lawyers say, yes, he traveled to boston and admits to violating his morning curfew on the occasions but only to see his lawyers and take classes he wanted to be private, since he's been insulted and threatened in public.
7:18 am
night went. >> reporter: the intense interest in labrie began last year. the country captivated by the elite prep school setting where his accuser said the unthinkable happened. >> i was raped. >> reporter: her voice disgeist disguised, face hidden. >> you were excited to see her because you wanted to have sex with her. >> no. >> reporter: labrie said, i walked out of the courthouse with my chin up. today, labrie back in the same courtroom where it all began. >> we reached out to the prosecutor and labrie's accuser but haven't received a response. labrie is expected to return to court today. if the judge decides he violated his tur cuecurfew, he could be carried out in handcuffs. >> thank you. let's get another check of the weather from al. >> we're also going to be watching an area of heavy showers and thunderstorms through the gulf coast. risk of strong storms from texas to louisiana.

7:41 am
now, there is some 320 million active users on twitter. i think you have 3.4 million followers personally. other than sheer numbers, what's the biggest change from then to now on twitter? >> i think how people use the service. it is the easiest way to see what's happening in the world right now. live. it breaks news for so many people. a lot of people just use it to see what's breaking and what's new in the world. >> it's grown up. has it grown up to be a great kid or, at times, can it be a bratty kid? >> it is a great kid. but it reflects what's happening right now and what people want to talk about it with it. >> i should mention, you're not only the ceo of twitter but also the ceo of square, that helps me use my credit card on devices everywhere. >> small businesses. >> how do you manage both of these big tech ceo jobs, which i understand can lead up to a 15 or 18-hour day?

7:43 am
globally. >> i asked you, has it become, at times, a bratty kid. there are a certain percentage of people on twitter who seem, to me, to use the platform simply to express anger and to hurt people and insult people. does it disappoint you? >> it's disappointing but, i mean, it's reflective of the world. we see as much optimism and positivity as negativity. we are empowering conversations so people can work out the issues. >> i sent out a tweet telling my measly number of followers you were going to be on and asked what questions they'd like you to be asked. there were questions about censorship, so let me ask you point-blank, does twitter sensor the content of its users? does it hide what it would consider inflammatory comments, whether they be social or political? >> absolutely not. twitter has been about controls.
7:44 am
want. it's our job to make sure they see the most important things and the things that will matter to them. >> anybody can say anything on twitter? the company does not go in there and take certain things out that can be dangerous? >> there's certainly tweets that promote violence, which is against our terms of service. people have controls to block and people have controls to mute. >> what about the company? >> not the company. >> who decides the difference between criticism and hate? >> these are the individuals. you can follow who you want, and if it's something you want to see, you continue to follow it. >> do you get nasty tweets personally? >> i get complaints. i get nastiness every now and then. >> as the ceo, can you block people? is that allowed? >> i can but i've never blocked anyone. i want to see what people are saying and i want to hear from them. >> it would be a strong statement if they find out that jack dorsey has blocked them. there was a disturbing thing, development that came about not
7:45 am
in an isis propaganda video. your image was there. it was a threatening message. how did the ceo of twitter end up being mentioned by a group like isis? >> well, you know, there's definitely a microscope on the service. people use it to express themselves. people use it to talk about what they want to see happen in the world and what they're against. >> did you find it alarming? >> i found it alarming. >> took it seriously? >> took it very seriously, absolutely. >> we're going to continue this over in the orange room. let me ask one last question here. if you're going to tweet after this interview to your 3.4 million followers, telling them how it went, what's the hashtag going to be? >> well. >> #well? >> absolutely. >> i'll take it. stick around.
