7:04 am
city, 10 to 16 inches of snow or more. boston, 8 to 14 inches of snow or more. and the winds are going to be a big factor with this, as will the temperatures. we'll have wind gusts up to 60 miles per hour, from new york up into boston. blizzard conditions very likely. and the temperatures will drop. whatever falls will be hanging around for a while. >> you're going to be busy this morning, al. >> camp out by the weather monitor. as you mentioned, we're seeing the midwest dealing with the snow. blake mccoy is in chicago this morning. it's snowing there for the first time in months. blake, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. we have monday morning flurries in chicago. people have to digging around and finding their snow boots. the last time there was any significant snow here was december 17th. that's a record dry spell. all that changes this morning as much of the country will experience winter is back. ov

7:06 am
the storm and the nor'easter has flight cancellations and delays piling up quickly. tom costello at jfk in new york. >> reporter: we expect this to be an all-stop tomorrow. 1,600 flights canceled today and tomorrow, as airlines start to get ahead of us. here's a list of the breakdown. today alone, we have 767 flights canceled. mostly that's tonight. folks are getting ready for the flights to be canceled. tomorrow, almost 1,000. and here are the affected airports. everything from the washington area, up to baltimore, up to philly, into new york, up to boston. we also expect buffalo to be worth watching. by the way, today, chicago, ord and midway, both affected already. airlines are already waiving their change fees. if you have a flight up the i-95 spine, from washington all the way up to boston, chances are you can change your flight without the penalty fee.
7:07 am
generally, that's about a $200 fee generally. but all the airlines at this point are waiving that. southwest airlines saying that tomorrow, it expects essentially no activity with its fleet on the east coast. or at least the northeast portion of that. it is going to be a very difficult day. of course, as we always say, when you have the i-95 corridor, the east coast, affected like this, there's a ripple effect across the entire country. you could see flights affected in chicago, in denver, all the way out to the west coast, as planes are out of position and simply flights can't make their way to the east coast. guys, back to you. >> tom, thank you very much. we'll have more on this storm throughout the morning, including what you can do now to make sure you're ready. let's move to politics now. top lawmakers asking the trump administration to turn over evidence by today of the president's unproven claim that his phones at trump tower were tapped by president obama during the election. this as the trump teams deals with follow-up of h
7:08 am
at the justice department. going to talk about this with kellyanne conway live in our studio in a moment. let's get to hallie jackson with the latest. hi, hallie. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. and today starts a busy week for president trump, with new developments on his budget proposal and his health care push, with a listening session set for today. but nine days, now, after his explosive, unproven claim about wiretapping, still no evidence, as one of his top advisers suggests perhaps there's even more to the story. deadline day for the administration, as congress looks for proof of president trump's unsubstantiated claim, that president obama wired a wiretap at trump tower during the election. >> i think the president has one of two choices. either retract or to provide the information that the american people deserve. >> reporter: now, a new suggestion from white house senior counselor,
7:09 am
conway, that the alleged surveillance may have gone beyond wiretapping. >> do you know whether trump tower was wiretapped? >> what i can say, is there's many ways to surveil each other. >> do you believe -- >> there's an article this week that talked about how your can surveil someone through their phones, certainly through their television sets. any number of different ways. and microwaves that turn into cameras, et cetera. so, we know that that is just a fact of modern life. >> reporter: the story, still forcing republicans off the message they'd refer to be pushing. >> that wasn't really part of the health care marketing campaign. >> reporter: house speaker paul ryan, questioned. >> have you seen anything to suggest there were wiretaps? >> no. >> reporter: now, the justice department is in the spotlight for something else. the decision to fire 46 u.s. attorneys. it's common practice for a new administration to ask the political appointees to step down. but one u.s. attorney from new york refused
7:10 am
fired. a prosecutor and fighter against financial fraud, said back in november, he had been asked by president trump to stick around. >> i would absolutely consider staying on. i agreed to stay on. >> reporter: the attorney turnover coming one day after these comments from sean hannity. >> every holdover from the obama administration, they need to go. >> reporter: a white house official says that did not affect the timing of the announcement. this week, the gop hopes to keep the focus on health care. party leaders are looking to move fast, to send a new bail to repeal and replace obamacare to the senate in less than a month. even with some republicans skeptical it will get that far. >> i don't want to see the house majority put at risk on a bill that is not going to pass the senate. >> reporter: the vice president, pitching the plan on the road in kentucky this weekend. >> obamacare has failed the people of kentucky. it's failed the people of america. and obamacare must go.
7:11 am
>> reporter: and in texas, at one of his first political events since the inauguration, donald trump jr. saying he hasn't seen much of his father since he took office and handed the business over to his sons. >> i have zero contact with him at this point. >> reporter: as for health care, the congressional budget office is expected to release the cost estimate for the gop bill as early as today. that plan to repeal and replace obamacare, something that may come up at the president's first cabinet meeting later this afternoon. >> a lot going on behind you. hallie jackson, thank you. kellyanne conway is counselor to the president. >> good morning. >> deadline day. this is a day the justice committee wants proof that barack obama wiretapped trump tower during the campaign, as president trump alleged. are we going to have real facts on this afternoon?
7:12 am
>> the president called for the house and senate intelligence committees to add this piece to the investigation to the ongoing investigation. he's pleased that's happening. we're not going to comment further. >> why wouldn't the president say to jeff sessions, his appointee to attorney general, turn over to the american public, evidence on this subject that i can be proven right when i accuse barack obama of a crime during the campaign. >> that sounds like an incendiary ail fwallegatioalleg. what jim clapper has said on other networks, if not this one, he can say those organizations under his purview, did not do this. that doesn't discount the rest of the obama administration. we know kevin lewis, the president's spokesman said a week ago, matt. he said he can tell you that the president and people in the white house weren't responsible. >> you said incendiary accusations. it's president trump who made that accusation. >> we're happy that the house and senate intelligence committees see enough to add this to an investigation. >> are they doing that as
7:13 am
courte courtesy? in essence, the president is saying, can you find this out for me? when it's something he can pick up the phone and find out. senator john mccain said this weekend, retract the statement to president obama or provide the information. this is information he has. he tweeted about it. he brought it up. he has the power to clarify. whi not? >> i can't comment on the private conversations he has with his attorney general and others on this topic. we're aware of the deadline and is glad it's happening. >> don't we risk going down the road to september 16th, 2016, when candidate trump had to instandront of the microphones and after years of insinuating that the president obama was not born in this country, the phony birther thing, had to say he was born here. don't we risk running down this road again? >> i'm surprised you're conflating the two. i fail to see a comparison. we're talking about a big
7:14 am
can talk about what you want. but there's 20 million people just last year who said no to obamacare. 6.5 million of them paid a penalty. >> can i stop you right there. the media did not bring up this topic. president trump did. >> i didn't say that you did. but there's so much going on that the american people want to hear about. >> all the more reason to question why it is that he would bring that up and then therefore throw the discussion -- it isn't like something that a blogger wrote. it's something the president of the united states accused his predecessor of tapping his phones. >> and it's under investigation. >> so, in fairness, the media are just trying to find out if there's any voracity to the claims. >> i understand. but there's so many other things that matter to americans. they heard what he said in his joint session. they're listening to that message. they're happy that health care plan that has left millions with skyrocketing premiums and no care. there's people in this country that can't use the insurance card because they can't
7:15 am
the premiums and deductibles. >> paul ryan was asked, how many people are going to lose health care insurance as compared to obamacare. he couldn't come up with an answer. can you give me a number? >> yes. what speaker ryan said below that comment was, he can't give you an answer because he doesn't know what people will do -- >> it's up to them. >> once they have more choice and freedom in the marketplace. they'll have tax credits. those not on medicaid and don't have employer-sponsored plans. he doesn't know what they will do. they will have more choices and competiti competition. >> but access to health care is different than having health ca care. >> we want everybody to have care. and there's inequitable tax treatment those who get 175 million americans who get the health insurance through the employers. those on medicaid will continue to be on medicaid. and the health savings accounts, the interstate across lines.
7:16 am
farmers and small business owners to pull together. >> another important issue to people. economy, jobs. got a good jobs report. the unemployment rate has dropped to 4.7%. when the same jobs figures would come out, the president said they were fake. the obama administration was making them up and they were a hoax. sean spicer was asked about this. let me play you his response. >> i talked to the president prior to this. and he said to quote him very clearly. they may have been phony in the past. but it's very real now. >> okay. it's a funny line. but in a sense, he can't even answer that question with a straight face because he knows that the president is saying numbers that were fake when they were under his predecessor, are now real because they're good. what gives? how do you explain that? >> if you are one of the miners or in
7:17 am
receiving one of the jobs created in the president's first full month, that's what matters to you. >> why wasn't the miners' jobs real under president trump but not under president obama? that's what you just said. >> and the media laughed at the comment. it was a lighthearted moment. we have less than 5% unemployment. you have ceos coming to the white house and making announcements to unleash investments, to create new jobs. >> that's not what the issue is. >> not take jobs to mexico. >> pardon? >> that's not what the issue is here. the issue of credibility. he is saying these are -- the labor department has been doing these numbers the same way for decades. love them or hate them, think they're right or wrong, the process hasn't changed. the method has not changed. so, the question is, where is the credibility there? saying those numbers were fake but now they're real because i'm in the oval office. >> the credibility is in the $7 billion intel took off the shelf and is going to unleash the investment because they're working with president trump to do so. the credibility is in t
7:18 am
he's the president now. and we're looking at what this president is doing in short order. >> with all due respect, what savannah is asking is, if we couldn't believe what he was saying during the campaign, if he was calling these numbers fake, when they were real, because they're real now, where is the credibility in that? >> he's also talking about things that were fake. you can keep your doctor if you like your doctor. keep your plan if you like your plan. there was fakery going on for people that was promised something that never came to be. and health care is a prime example of that. he's saying to americans who feel like they can't get care, they can't get coverage, we have five states and 1,021 counties. one in five americans in this country, live under one choice. that's not a choice if you only have one insurance provider. >> that doesn't answer the question. you're mentioning health care. on this issue of the job numbers, fake then, real now. >> i'm talking about numbers that matter to americans right now. and president obama is his ga
