7:06 am
but this was a historic investigation. and he was a peripheral figure. and he was not on the radar at the moment. and there was no advance warning of this attack. savannah? matt? >> an investigation getting started this morning. bill neely, thank you. also this morning, new drama surrounding the investigations into possible collusion between members of president trump's team and operatives during the election. this as lawmakers get set to vote on the gop's bill to repeal and replace obamacare. we have complete coverage from capitol hill. and we'll talk about all of this with one of the leading republicans on the hill, senator john mccain. let's start with peter alexander. peter, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. new this morning, the top democrat on the house intelligence committee is making his strongest statement yet. telling nbc news, there's more than circumstantial evidence of collusion between trump associates and the russians. this also comes as lawmakers are trying to make sense of what was a highly unusual back-to-back
7:07 am
news conferences by the intelligence committee's republican chairman. this morning, a new partisan firestorm, after the public airing of traditionally secret information. the president saying he feels vindicated. >> i do. i very much appreciated the fact that they found what they found. >> reporter: the spark, this bombshell from the chair of the house intelligence committee, who advised mr. trump's transition team. >> i have seen intelligence reports that clearly show that the president-elect and his team were, i guess at least, monitored and disseminated out. >> reporter: devin nunes says it does nothing to say that the wiretapping was false. >> there never was. >> reporter: the intelligence was scooped up legally after the election, not collected through spying directed at mr. trump and
7:08 am
his aides. and not related to the fbi's investigation into possible ties between trump associates and russia. what he says is alarming that the names of some trump team members they have been improperly revealed or unmasked. nunes taking that information to the president, before consulting with his committee's top democrat, who fired back. >> the chairman will need to decide if he is the chairman of an inspect investigation into conduct or he's going to act as surrogate of the white house because he cannot do both. >> reporter: nunes defending his decision. >> why is it appropriate for you to brief president trump, given it's his own administration or campaign associates that are part of this investigation? >> the president needs to know these intelligence reports are out there. and i have a duty to tell him that. >> reporter: the top democrat, amping up the stakes, days after saying this about the russian connection to trump associates. >> there's circumstantial
7:09 am
evidence of collusion. there's direct evidence, i think, of deception. >> reporter: the former prosecutor, going even further. >> there's evidence that is not circumstantial. and is very much worthy of investigation. >> reporter: the high stakes back and forth, prompting john mccain to criticize the intelligence committee's behavior as bizarre, and renew his call for a separate investigation. >> no longer does the committee have the capability to handle this alone. >> reporter: the white house is pushing back, that his former chairman, paul manafort, secretly worked for a russian billionaire, to help advance vladimir putin's interests in the u.s. and beyond a decade ago. >> to suggest that the president knew who his clients were from a decade ago is a bit insane. >> reporter: manafort telling nbc news, he never worked for the russian government. dismissing the report as spear and innuendo. both parties are stunned by the head of the house intelligence committee making public
7:10 am
statements about an ongoing investigation. they say i'd doesn't serve public interest and undermines the house intelligence committee and in the process of congressional oversight. matt and savannah? >> peter, thanks. the other big story playing out in washington, the showdown of the republican health care bill. the house is scheduled to vote on it today. and despite pushes from the president and house speaker, one question remains, do they have the votes? kristen welker on capitol hill this morning. good morning. >> reporter: hi, savannah. good morning to you. president trump worked late in the night to try to close this deal. white house officials tell me he reached out to lawmakers directly. and today, he will meet with key holdouts. but he still doesn't have enough votes to pass this legislation. but there is measured optimism this morning, with the white house offering a sweetener to conservatives. this morning, a possible breakthrough, redriviving the
7:11 am
republican health care plan that was once on life support. >> president and i came to an agreement in principle. >> reporter: mark meadows, one of the main holdouts, now hinting there may be light at the end of the tunnel. >> i think what we're trying to do now is to make sure that our agreement is actually something that can be executed in a way that passes the senate. >> reporter: later today, the president will pitch the rest of the freedom caucus at the white house. gop leaders and mr. trump working the phones overnight. lobbying skeptical lawmakers in a last-ditch effort to push the health care bill through. at issue, conservatives say the new health care plan, like the current one, is weighed down by too many regulations. to flip the no votes to yes, gop leaders are considering a change that would allow insurers to sell scaleback plans that wouldn't cover maternity leave. giving more choices. critics argue that could leave people unprotected and alienate
7:12 am
republicans. house speaker, paul ryan, remains determined. >> the president is a fantastic closer. he's been getting many votes. >> reporter: the vote today, steeped in symbolism. >> we are done. >> reporter: falling on the seventh anniversary of president obama signing his signature health care plan into law. former vice president joe biden and other democrats wednesday, still fighting to keep it intact. >> thank you, mr. vice president, for helping to pass the bill. and for being with us today and continuing the fight to protect our care. thank you. >> i ain't going anywhere. this is not going to pass. >> reporter: and even as speculation swirls, the vote could get delayed or scrapped altogeth altogether, one white house official insists that won't happen. the question for president trump, can he close his biggest deal yet? >> there's no plan. this is -- there's plan "a" and plan "a." we're going to get this done. >> reporter: by our latest
7:13 am
count, 29 republicans are leaning or planning to vote no. president trump can only afford to lose 21 republicans. in addition to that, there's concern that this latest fix could create a procedural hurdle in the senate. the drama is building with the vote expected in just hours. matt? savannah? >> kristen welker. thank you very much. we're joined by republican senator john mccain. senator, nice to see you. good morning. >> good morning. >> you know washington. you know the role of oversight that congress has. can you explain any reason why chairman nunes would have done what he did yesterday. i've seen reports from the intelligence committee on this subject. and instead of discussing the reports with members of his own intelligence committee and the ranking democratic member, go right to the press and right to the white house? >> i have not seen anything like that. and i'm happy to say in the senate intelligence committee, there's a good working relationship between senator burr and senator warner.
7:14 am
and i've not seen anything like it. and it's very disturbing. >> reporter: you heard what adam schiff said. he said the chairman will need to decide if he's the chairman of an independent investigation into conduct or he's going to be a surrogate to the white house because he cannot do both. has chairman nunes so damaged the credibility of the intelligence committee they should just shut down that investigation? >> matt, i can't make that decision. that's up to the leadership of the house. it's up to the house of representatives. i can say that there's so many moving parts here, including the latest news this morning, that supposedly, there was coordination between the trump campaign and the russians, for which i've seen no substantiati substantiation. but it continues on and on. that's why we need a select committee to clear this whole issue up. and by the way, intelligence
7:15 am
committees and armed services committees always work in a bipartisan fashion. and i'm sorry to see what's happened over there. >> the president said, as you saw, he felt somewhat vindicated from the information he received yesterday. but let's back up. the claim that trump made was then-president obama surveilled him some way before the election at trump tower. what we appear to have learned yesterday is that trump or his associates were somehow incidentally caught up in surveillance after the election. surveillance that was of other legal foreign targets. i ask you, should he feel vindicated? is that accusation of wiretapping by president obama vindicated? >> i think the president, obviously, can express his views and emotions. but nothing has changed since the director of the fbi said that there was no evidence that trump towers had been wiretapped. >> this changing nothing? >> that has not been refuted. that had not been refuted by
7:16 am
anyone. this new story, as you mentioned, apparently has to do with postelection things that happened. but i don't see where the director of the fbi's testimony has changed the facts in the slightest way. >> this story of russian possible connections to trump associates during the campaign, you just alluded to this a second ago. a week ago you said this, there's a lot of aspects that requires further scrutiny. you went on to say, i think there's a lot of shoes to drop from this centipede. do you think that when all of those shoes drop, that they may mortally wound this young administration? >> i have no idea because i don't know what those shoes are. but i've been around this town long enough to know that when there's something this consequences and this enormity, there's always additional information that comes out before it's concluded. and we're already seeing that, by the way. this morning, with the
7:17 am
allegations there was coordination between the trump campaign and the russians. i have seen them before, matt. and so, there's more to come. >> congressman adam schiff was the democrat on the house intelligence committee has said to nbc, there's more than circumstantial evidence of some kind of collusion between trump campaign associates and russia. have you seen that evidence? are you aware of it? do you doubt it? >> i'm not aware of it. i do know, for example, in the republican convention, there was to be included a provision that called for the provision of defensive lethal weapons to ukraine. somehow that disappeared. i'm curious how that happened. there's lots of things going on. >> let me ask you before i let you go, senator, about health care. i know it's happening down the hall from you. it's going to be a tight vote tonight. what is your prediction?
7:18 am
will it pass? if it doesn't pass, how badly does that damage the president's ability to pass other aspects of his agenda? >> i don't know if it will pass or not, matt. your information is as good as mine. i know there's questions from members from states like mine, that expanded medicaid, from the bill as i've seen it, and they say there's changes taking place all the time, would have significant impact on my state of arizona. so, i don't know how it will turn out. but i do know this. obamacare, as it is, is imploding. and it's not working in arizona, where premiums are going up over 100%. so, we've got to do something. >> yeah. but is this the bill to replace it? >> i don't know because all of us should wait until it gets over here, if it gets over here. and we have an amending process. we have parliamentary
7:19 am
procedures, where we will enact changes that we think are necessary. >> senator john mccain. i know how much you love the early hours. i appreciate you getting up and joining us this morning. >> good to be with you. >> thanks. let's turn to dylan, now. she's in for al. and the threat of severe storms in the midsection of the country. >> the threat of severe weather will spread east going into the weekend. it's this cold front that's moving eastward today. today, we're going to see the biggest threat fire up not until later tonight. you see this stretching down into the panhandle of texas. you see large hail, damaging wind gusts and isolated tornados. the threat of severe weather will continue tomorrow and expand a bit. this orange area, including most of nebraska, through kansas and parts of texas, too. watch what happens. the cold front moves eastward, as we go into the evening time little rock, just west of st. louis, stretching down into

this is something called a cash and counseling program. not every state has it. but if you're the one who is taking time off work to care for your parents, you may be able to get cash for that. contact your state medicaid office to see if it's available. and if your parents have purchased long-term care insurance, you may be eligible to be paid out of that policy, as well. >> should adult children looking at the possibility of taking care of their parents in the future go ahead and buy that long-term care insurance? >> if they're parents can't afford it and you can, absolutely. it's something to look into. it can put off a hassle and expense down the road that you may not be able to come up with the money for later. you may want to look at something called longevity insurance, which is a deferred annuity. it doesn't kick in until your parents are 85 years old. buy them a benefit that will pay them essentially an income by the time they get very old.

8:41 am
>> we use a smaller pan to make a cute, little cheesecake. you press it in. or use a bottom of a cup. and then, we have the filling. we have some sugar. and again, this recipe is so straightforward. some egg. a little vanilla. lemon juice. and what makes it really creamy is the sour cream. we use creme fresh, as well. >> there's not sour cream in every cheesecake recipe. >> it makes it so light. >> we have fans over here. >> we're in a timeout. >> i know. let's see. we make the filling. it will look like this. how do we incorporate the raspberries. >> we're going to put this into the baked crust. the crust bakes about 15 minutes at 350 degrees. and then, i'm going to have you help me make the swirl. you just squirt some of the
8:42 am
raspberry coulis, and take a toothpick. >> like that? should i get it looking swirly, like mess it? up? >> beautiful. >> it bakes for a really long time. and in a low oven. you turn off the oven and let it sit in the oven and cool down. that keeps it from cracking. and you have a beautiful cheesecake. >> carson cooks his in a water bath. >> what? i do? >> you read the book. you cook them in a water bath, it takes it really creamy. >> what does that mean? a water bath? from a water bath, if you take this and put it in a roasting pan and you put the whole thing in the oven. >> matt is showing off. >> how low is the heat of the oven? >> 90 minutes for 350 degrees. not super low. >> like your recipe. >> really good. >> sawesome. that crust, wow.

8:44 am
being patient. >> that's probably why i'm not good at it. now, we take the meringue and we make these little clouds. this is the best part. i'm going to make some divots. and you just pour some of the raspberry into the divots. >> is this the same raspberry mixture we made over there? >> yeah. just raspberries and sugar. >> do i want it to overflow? >> just fill the little hole. perfect. we figured out a trick to make chopsticks. >> while we have a few seconds left to show. >> you're going to dip in and sweep out and go around until you get a swirl. just like that. >> looks like vale helped her out. >> yours doesn't like great, either. >> okay. >> and just let it cool?
