7:02 pm
dominican republic today the storm damaged the eastern islands of turks and caicos according to the national hurricane center fiona is likely to strengthen, they say, to a category 4 status tomorrow before threatening bermuda late thursday. it's expected to head towards northern knew found land but will not hit the u.s. main land. will you look at this, two days after fiona made landfall puerto rico is still in chaos right now 55% of the island doesn't have clean running water and more than a million customers don't have electricity. puerto rico's governor warned it could take days before everybody has electricity, but nothing is guaranteed hurricane fiona dropped an inch -- or i should say an average of 10 to 16 inches of rain across puerto rico. more than 30 inches in some isolated areas the surge of water so powerful it washed this ferry ashore. new today, the fema administrator announced she'll
7:03 pm
travel to puerto rico to assess the damage and that she'll deploy hundreds of additional personnel. when hurricane maria hit five years ago, fema admitted or committed $28 billion in federal recovery money for puerto rico but the local officials used only a fraction of it. in fact, last month the island's government had spent about 1/5 of the funds that's according to a director in the government accountability office it's all leading to more calls for more congressional oversight on disaster relief money >> it needs congress to exercise its oversight and its effort to ensure that it doesn't matter that you appropriate disaster money if it doesn't end up going to the people of puerto rico if it doesn't create an energy grid that is resilient so that whenever the next hurricane or natural disaster comes, the lights stay on. >> of course they heard it in puerto rico for years and years
7:04 pm
and now the power's out again. for now much of puerto rico is in the dark. nbc's gabe gutierrez on our top story live near the capitol of san juan. >> reporter: shep, this is what a devastating cleanup effort looks like widespread flood damage as far as the eye can see this area was devastated by the flood waters that started on sunday the river -- nearby river rushed in and flooded many of these homes. some of these homeowners were able to get here for the first time today this afternoon i took an ariel tour of this area and a few others thankfully the flood waters in many parts of puerto rico are receding because the rain has finally stopped in some parts of the island however, the cleanup effort is just beginning in the southern part of the island there is still widespread flood damage and most of puerto
7:05 pm
rico remains without power as for running water, about 55% don't have running water it is a significant -- there is significant devastation here exactly five years after hurricane maria. now fema says that its warehouses are stocked at this point and the governor has told me that he expects the power to come back first and then the water service. but, shep, there is widespread frustration here among many residents who feel that the power grid should have been more effectively rebuilt after hurricane maria. again, they hope that this power returns as quickly as possible the governor is still hopeful that could happen in the next few days shep. >> gabe gutierrez in toa baja. >> a federal lawsuit over migrant flights to martha's
7:06 pm
vineyard a group is now suing him they filed in massachusetts federal court just today accusing governor desantis and other florida officials of carrying out a premeditated, fraudulent and illegal scheme centered on exploiting this vulnerability for the sole purpose of advancing their own personal, financial and political interests. nbc news has reached out to governor desantis' office but has not yet heard back news of the lawsuit came just hours after reports that another flight of migrants may be heading to delaware today. that sent officials and volunteers scrambling. they got a tip that the plane was set to land just miles from president biden's home in rewho he beth beach. the white house said it was aware of those reports and when reporters asked the president about it, he had a message for governor desantis. >> he should come visit. we have a beautiful shoreline. >> governor tdesantis said he
7:07 pm
could not confirm that the possible flight was happening and at our last check the flight had not shown up a sheriff in texas is investigating whether anybody committed a crime by sending the migrants to massachusetts. here's cnbc's perry russom. >> reporter: ron desantis defending the flights. >> volunteer offered transport to sanctuary jurisdictions. >> they're under investigation by the sheriff in bexar county, texas. >> we believe there's a high probability the laws were broken >> a venezuelan migrant was paid to recruit 50 migrants. >> we want to know what was promised to them what if anything did they sign did they understand the document they signed? desantis said they got a packet and a map. >> they were provided an ability to be in the most posh sanctuary
7:08 pm
jurisdiction in the world. it's sad that martha's vineyard people deported them. >> they were ferried to joint base cape cod two days after arriving massachusetts governor charlie baker says it was voluntary. the moving of migrants is being praised. >> i personally thought it was a good idea. >> critics are now raising questions over whether florida state funds were properly used in the state budget highlights it reads $12 million was allocated to facilitate the transport of unauthorized aliens out of florida these migrants were flown from texas. they say they are legally here. >> everyone will say between 1/3 to 40% coming across are seeking to come into florida if you can do it at the source and divert them, the chance they end up in florida is much less. >> reporter: the majority of migrants being bussed or flown is from venezuela. according to customers and border patrol, last month there
7:09 pm
were 25,000 stops involving venezuelans at the border, up 43% of the time. >> what's on my watch are v venezuela, cuba and nicaragua. the ability to send them back is not rational. >> today he accused nicolas maduro of releasing people and sending them to the border a spokesperson says it is not only absurd but designed to justify his actions regarding veteransn migrants. >> perry russom live. did former president trump declassify any of the top secret documents found at mar-a-lago? and if he did, which ones? a special master is now on the case and he's pressing the legal team for donald trump for those answers. today was federal judge raymond dearie's first court hearing as special master his job is to review all of the documents that the fbi seized duj their search and to weed out
7:10 pm
anything that might be off limits to investigators because of executive privilege or attorney-client privilege. judge dearie making it clear that he wants to move forward quickly so the investigation can move forward at the heart of the legal battle are roughly 100 highly sensitive documents that fbi agents found in the former president's office and storage room mr. trump's lawyers are suggesting that he may have declassified some of them but they're refusing to disclose which documents. they claim it could hurt their defense in the future. in court today judge dearie pushed back saying my view is you can't have your cake and eat it too essentially if you're going to claim the documents are declassified, then do it they did not the former president's lawyers are also fighting for quick access to the classified material they say it's necessary to defend their client but at today's hearing the doj lawyers argued that today's documents are so sensitive that some of
7:11 pm
the investigators aren't even allowed to look at them and that top secret clearance is simply not enough some are america's most closely guarded secrets and they're on a need-to-know basis when mr. trump's lawyers insisted they need to know the special master shot back the government has a very strong obligation that the information doesn't get in the wrong hands it is a matter of need to know and if you need to know, you will know. let's bring in chuck rosenberg, nbc news contributor and former u.s. attorney and senior fbi official chuck, why was it significant that the special master, judge dearie, questioned the issue whether these are classified or not? >> well, the judge simply wanted the trump lawyers to tell him, to tell the court, whether or not they're going to claim that mr. trump had declassified them. they were saying that to the press. they've been saying that outside of court that claim is floating around. but the only place it matters,
7:12 pm
shepherd, is in court. so judge dearie wanted to hear from them whether they were going to say that in court to your point, they still refused to do it the classified documents are important for a number of reasons, including the intelligence community of the united states needs to do a full damage assessment to see if anything was compromised and if stuff was compromised, to try and fix that compromise. and they need the fbi to help them do it so the judge knows, and he's exactly right, that he needs to resolve this question and resolve it quickly so the investigation can continue and so the intelligence community can do a full damage assessment. that's why it matters. >> you know, the doj has that appeal pending before the 11th circuit asking to retain the right to review classified documents. the lawyer for the doj said today if they lose, they still have other options is he talking the supremes there? >> he might be right? i mean, if you lose in the
7:13 pm
appellate court, you can always try to take it up one level higher i would imagine that's what they're referring to the government wants this to be resolved as quickly as possible. again, so they can continue their investigation and so they can do a full damage assessment. appellate litigation, you know this, shepherd, slows stuff down it's not helpful to the government to slow stuff down. judge dearie said something interesting today. he told the trump team that if you're not going to make a claim in court, if you're not going to assert that this stuff has been declassified by the former president, then i'm inclined to rule against you then the government said something interesting. there's a 1988 supreme court case called egan which says it's really not even for the court to decide whether or not something's classified that's an executive branch decision and an executive branch function and i imagine that the executive branch, the department of justice, is going to prevail on this. >> chuck rosenberg, great to have you thank you.

sawhill, what else does this call for and does it have any chance to pass >> it has a very real chance of passing. the bill is expected to get a vote in the house of representatives likely tomorrow and it's expected to pass with liz cheney in terms of what's in the bill, let's put this graphic up on the television it makes abundantly clear for anyone that doubts that that the vice president's job is to count the votes, nothing more, nothing else to 1/3 of both chambers. it would force states and governors to certify only lawful winners of the election on the basis of state law and it would prevent states from changing rules after the election to certify a different winner now after it passes the house it goes to the senate which is working on a very similar version which is optimism among senators i've spoken about about

getting this over the finish line there are differences with the senate having 1/5 versus 1/3 there is a federal cause of action for aggrieved presidential candidates in the house bill that senate republicans are not particularly fond of. as for cheney, this is a mission which she has staked her political career on. it's the reason she lost her primary. she stood up to donald trump and she's willing to go down politically for the cause of standing up to donald trump and preventing another january 6th from happening let's have a listen to what she said about what this bill is about and what it's not. >> i want to be very clear that this is to prevent future attacks during election processes so no one should take our effort to reform the electoral count as any indication that donald trump did not violate the existing law or did not violate the constitution. >> now looking at the calendar, shep, this is all headed for a big vote in the house and senate in terms of final passage in the
7:26 pm
lame duck session. this is one piece of the january 6th legislative committee's recommendations and there will be others. >> sahil, thanks very much. the justice department is under counting the number of deaths in prisons and jails across the country just last year the federal government failed to count nearly a thousand deaths that's according to a newly released bipartisan senate report the senate subcommittee on investigations found that the doj did not count at least 990 deaths in custody in 2021. under federal law the justice department is required to collect data about inmate deaths inside allstate and local correctional facilities that accept federal funding the subcommittee says the doj is failing at that responsibility >> today after a 10-month bipartisan investigation we can reveal that despite a clear charge from congress to determine who is dying in prisons and jails across the country, where they are dying and why they are dying, the
7:27 pm
department of justice is failing to do so >> the senate subcommittee said congress is still waiting for a mandatory report from the doj about preventing deaths in local prisons and jails. the doj expected to submit that report in 2024 and if it does, it'll be eight years overdue first responders in chicago rushing eight people to hospitals after an explosion destroys part of an apartment building what we're learning about the investigation. ford stock tanked. the worst day in more than a decade the news behind the plunge and russia now plotting to annex parts of occupied ukraine. reporting from the ground and analysis from a former u.s. ambassador to ukraine as we approach the bottom of the hour and the top of the news on cnbc. g

7:36 pm
president putin can do but as you say, no one is going to take this seriously no one outside of russia is going to take this seriously sign of desperation. he is facing all kinds of problems this is a playbook, shep you remember that in 2014 the russians annexed crimea and then did a sham referendum just like they're talking about now. they got 97% of the vote, shep that's what they say they got, 97% of the vote. it was a sham then it was done at the barrel of a gun. this is not going to be convincing to anyone so this is a sign of desperation on putin's part >> authorities have dug up bodies from a liberated city investigators say most of them are civilians. ambassador, is that a last straw? can the west no longer give putin a sort of off ramp to this war? >> ukrainians are not willing to give him an off ramp for this
7:37 pm
war. ukrainians see those kinds of atrocities they recognize genocide. they know what putin is trying to do to all ukrainians. he's trying to wipe ukraine off the map so the ukrainians are not eager to show an off ramp. they're not eager to show any kind of interest in negotiations with this butcher. these war crimes just further isolate him. >> ambassador william taylor, thank you. we're getting new details of a routine military training flight that went completely wrong. a navy fighter jet hit a bird, then crashed into a texas neighborhood that was back in september, but today military officials released this cockpit video of the thing. the two pilots see that preparing to land. boom alarms start blaring moments later as they try to make it to the airport.
