7:10 am
this security clearance to jar kushner. what's the impact of all of it? of course, the president does have the authority to grant that to.arance if he wants >> kushner will probably keep the clearance. the impact will be probably largely political. the house oversight committee, th same one that heard this week's public testimony from michael cohen, it's already degun an investi and will undoubtedly call witnesses. that might not lead very far because any of these potential witnesses worked in the white house and will probabllaim executive privilege. >> pete williams in washington, thank you. >> the president also is facing newfallout overhree days of potentially damming testimony on capitol hill from his former laer andixer michael cohen. nbc's white house correspond kristen welker has that part of the sry for us. >> now back at the white house, president trump is facing new criticism from abroad and at home as his political and legal problems mount. >> afteret rning home from washington overnight, president

eset to released this weekend. michael jackson's estate has sued to stop it, his family claiming this is a one-sided attack. in a moment we'll talk to director dan reed. first natalie males with aew look at this much-talked-about film. >> -- in love with michael. he saide loved me. >> reporter: "leaving neveand" tells t story of two boys whose love for jackson brought them to his side, resulting in they say a pattern of sexual abuse. wade robson and james safechuck sa jackson rehearsed with them how to avoid being caught and t groomem for abuse. >> best thing about hawaii? beingithyou. >> reporter: safechuck's mother says the entire family fell under jackson's spell. >> he could be anywhere with anybody in the world and michael cknted to be with our family.
7:33 am
>> reporter: n's family say they never believed the accusations against their brother, en though his sleepovers with young boys might have looked suspicious to outsiders. >> i think -- he said, mom, i would never hurt a kid. he's telling the truth. michael is not lik that. >> reporter: for two decades robson and safechuck said the same rothing, bson testifying under oath at jackson's criminal trial that theinger never touched him inappropriately. jackson was found not guilty. in his early 30s, robson's story changed. >> never forgot one moment of what michael did to me but i wal psychologi and emotionally completely unable and unwilling to understand that it was sexual abuse. >> reporter: robson and safechuck say becoming fathers prompted them to speak out. both made their allegatckns after jan's death, both sued jackson's estate and media companies. those suits were dismissed and
7:34 am
the suits against the medias companre being appealed. >> hello wade. today is your birthday. >> reporter: the ordeal they describe in looks to add a disturbing new chapter to a legacy alreadyed shroudn controversy. >> secrets will eat you up. s you feel alone. >> reporter: for "today," natalie bcmorales, news los angeles. >> we're joined by dan reed the producer and director ofng "leaeverland." good morning. >> good morning. >> a lot of people talking about this film before it even debuts on television. it's interesting it's having such an efenct. in some we've heard these stories for years about michael jackson. what was i about your telling that you think is so compelling? >> i think it's because we have direct testimony from the little boys, the young men now, whoal ac suffered the abuse. i think that's the first time it's happened. wade was briefly on the "today" show in 2013. apart from that, none of theme have c forward on television.
7:35 am
>> as you know, the jackson estate and family has been very critical, flielg a $100 million uit against o, saying it's shamelessly exploiting an innocent man no longer here to defend himself. ho do you respond? >> first of all, the film is nou michael jackson. it's about wade and james. secondly, jackson is dead, but we include the rebuttals he mad when he was alive. we've included that in the film and given him a significant presence and his lawyers. i think this,s far as jackson's right of reply goes, we have met that fully. >> when you first c these stories, here you have two young men who for a long time did deny that it happened. so how did you approach that as afilmmaker? did you come with skepticism?d ou come predisposed to believe their new story? y
7:36 am
how did deal with that fact? >> i've been making documentaries for 30 years, so i don't take everyone at face value. you have to remain skeptical while listening very carefully to what people had to sachlt once i interviewed wade and james which i did at length, i tried to find anything in the record in the investigations of 1993 androm 2003 to 2005, anything to contradict their story and i couldn't find anything. >> one of the other things is this is about criticism for james and wade. have either of them been paid to in the documentary? >> no. nterest cial enter whatsoever. >> others say they hope it helps th appeal where they sued the jackson t estate. >> about money, about jackson's estate's money. it's about protecting an asset that would be at risk if people believed tclaim. >> let's talk about the film and what's in it. what do they say about how this is possible?
7:37 am
where are the families? how does this happen? >> thes film about two families coming to terms with what they discovered two decades later about the truth of the boys' relationship with michael jackson. the mothers a key figures in my four-hour film, they describe how they saw jackson as a son. they felt great love for him,ed accen their home, cooked for him, cleaned his clothes. theys adopted him one of the family. it's chilling because jackson ingratiatedimself into these very ordinary families so he could sexually abuse theirch dren. >> we know how difficult it is for any victim of sexual abuse or alleged victim of sexual abuse to talk about it, share it with the world. what was the moment for james and wade where they said, yes, i've testified on behalf of miael jackson, defended him publicly, i can't live with this anymore? >> i think a big moment for wade, and wade kind of led the
7:38 am
y, was having his own son. so when his son came into the worl and he saw this child and o have azed what it is child in your care, and then he began to imagine michael doing the things to his little boy that he had done to him, to 7-year-old de and he became -- these images were revoltg anddisgusting. when he thought about his own experience with michael, he felt nothgment that's the j traic thing here. a deep attachment forms between the abuse and the victim and the sexual relationship even at such a young age becomes normaliz normal, becomes love. you think i'micspecial. them sees it as a good thing, doesn't see it as abuse. >> that brings me to a part of the film. people should warned it's incredibly graphic. there's no eupmisms used whatsoever. why did you think it was important to be so detaile about what exactly took place
7:39 am
behind closed doors. ichael many years jackson hid in plain sight. he portrayed himself as someone who never had aod child and therefore was living out his childhood in the public eye. he'd be seen everywhere holding nds with a littl boy. he said his interest in little boys was entirely incent. he admitted he slept, spent nights with them but nothing happened. so for many years the public bought into this and everyone bought into this. he was able to spend so muc time in the company of little children without people thinking there was anything strange about this. >> hide eitheram wade or told anybody in their lives, whether a parent, a friend, someone else about the abuse they say they suffered, or have they lived with this up until theyat down with you? >> wade lived with it up until he disclosed to his psychotherapist. that story is in tfilm. of course, he came out on the "today" show in may 2013. james had confided in his mother
7:40 am
in 2009, butoas terrified she might tell someone, he made her swear to keep that secret between the two of them. the secrets of the true nture of telationship with jackson was kept for nearly two decades. that's very typical of survivors of child sexual abuse. fascinating piece of work. airs sunday and monday on hbo. >> sunday and monday. >> thank you very much for being here. coming up, ouron crsation with youtube'so ce on the sweping changes the company is making to protect young hildren onmine. the health scare facing actor luke perry, everything we know as h recovers i the hospital. the well wishes are, of course, pouring in. ahead this morning, the jonasrothers are back. the new music they dropped overnight. the fashion desner who reportedly introduced prince harry and meghan markle and was at her baby shower a few weeks ago. now where will she be? in our studio.
