2:00 am
first, a move stunning by current standards. republicans on the house intelligence committee declaring no collusion. republicans break from the intel community over the question of russian interference in the election. concluding the kremlin was not trying to help donald trump win. they are shutting down the year-long investigation despite not interviewing key witnesses. >> we interviewed 75 witnesses and looked at 300,000 plus documents to find. we have seen perhaps meetings inappropriate or ill advised to have taken. we have seen coincidences of people bumping into one another. we have no collusion of the trump campaign or the clinton campaign. the preference for trump is not supported by the evidence. >> the president tweeting approval in all caps. praising the intel committee for
2:01 am
no evidence of collusion of the campaign. one republican member tom rooney of florida offered harsh words for the panel. >> we have gone off the rails and basically a political forum for people to leak information to drive the day's news. we, as you alluded to, we lost all credibility. >> the republicans move accelerated into the disintegration of partisan warfare. >> i think it really is all too easy and bit of a cop-out to say that. the reality is the mission of the chairman from the beginning was to protect the president, not follow the facts where they would lead. that was a fundamental problem we had to deal with and it left us in the position of either going along with with essentially a whitewash or
2:02 am
calling out majority every step of the way. that is the course we were forced to take. >> the gop plan to give democrats a 150-page draft report. democrats are expected to produce their own report arguing collusion did occur. >> with the house intel committee and the investigation imploding, robert mueller forging ahead. his deputy attorney general rod rosenstein offering support. rosenstein says the special counsel not an unguided missile. there is no reason to terminate the special counsel. >> joining us is the staff reporter for the washington post. nice to see you this morning. you have been somewhat of a trump whisperer for us. you rightly said a lot of people
2:03 am
took him literally and not seriously. people who love and support trump take him seriously, but not literally. you coined that phrase. that's why we love to have you on here. let's talk about russia. the house intelligence panel saying no collusion. ending its investigation. at the same time, we have the issue with russia and the uk and theresa ma theresa may saying the russians were behind the targeted assassination or attempted assassination. the white house not really mentioning the word russia. where do we stand on the trump administration and russia issue? >> a mess. you know, it is so hard to see through all the noise. it is walking through a fog. you keep bumping into the obstacles and they are all political. it is very hard, i think, for
2:04 am
just your regular consumer of news to take a look at this and not feel overwhelmed and also not feel as though they understand the scope of what is happening. there are so many investigations. everything is so partisanly divided. everyone has an opinion about it. people stand back and say just tell me when it is all over and we know what happened. we're overwhelmed right now. you think the white house understands that. i think they have an instinct for that. they play off of that. >> sometimes it feels they are trolling the media. let's turn to pennsylvania. your back yard. the huge special election today. polls open in two hours. this is a fascinating race. tim murray ran unopposed in 2014 and 2016. nate silver's operation says when they weight this district it is 21% more republican
2:05 am
leaning than the nation as a whole. what does it mean if conor lamb can win in the very red district? >> i think the biggest thing to understand about this race because it is here and local and i understand the people, i think lamb for the democrats, the biggest thing for them is that they should run candidates that fit their district. this is a -- even though there are 25,000 more registered democrats, it leans more moderate to conservative. it is important for the candidates to pick that mold. lamb, democrat is not anywhere on his signs or on his ads. he is almost parallel with rick
2:06 am
sa saccone on almost all his issues. the sort of deciding swing voter in this is the union voter. tim murphy was very, very good with union voter. so was trump. the problem for saccone is he is a right to work candidate. that makes the union vote swing more toward lamb because they believe he has their backs. i don't think as many voters as i talked to who are union voters, they still love trump and vote for him again. because of saccone's right to work stance, they are leaning toward lamb because they see him as someone that is independent. >> it is clear here the trump victory in 2016 has told both parties they can no longer take the working american for granted. both parties for years did that. that is why the trade stuff, l
2:07 am
salena, the democrats and republicans see nostalgia for living wage and decent job zero in on that. >> again, both lamb and saccone support the president's trade stance. support the tariffs. saccone doesn't stand a chance. young, charming, great resume. saccone is not young. even though he has an incredible resume, he served in military for 18 years. intelligence agency. he was the last diplomat in north korea. that story has not risen to the top because lamb is so overwhelmingly different. >> and because trump talked about himself when he went to pennsylvania. >> it is all about trump on saturday night. >> i talked to a ton of people
2:08 am
after they were leaving. i asked them that. they were like hey, we came here for a trump rally. not saccone rally. we got our marching orders. we came here to hear trump. when trump lists off his accomplishments, it is a reminder to the voter this is important to vote for the republican party. so he can continue making those accomplishments or promises and keep the promises they voted. >> this was a lynyrd skynyrd concert and they want to hear "freebird." new information about the package bombings in austin, texas. this is feeding the theory it could be a hate crimes. three in ten days appear to be related. two of the explosions taking place monday killing a
2:09 am
17-year-old african-american male and injuring a 75-year-old hispanic woman. the first blast on march 2nd killed a 39-year-old african-american man. >> both victims killed are relatives of prominent members of the african-american community. >> the united states postal service has reviewed their records and we do not believe this was a delivery that came through the postal service and we are checking with the other package delivery service as well. the initial indication is this was not a package delivered by any mail service. it was placed on the front door step. >> authorities warning all residents to be careful with packages. austin police responded to 82 calls alone last night. another nor'easter churning from new york up through new england. it could affect 44 million people with hurricane-force gusts, blizzard conditions along the massachusetts coast. winter storm warnings across the
2:10 am
region. schools closed in boston, hartfo hartford, providence and portland, maine. >> expect a rough commute this morning. amtrak suspending service between boston and new york until 11:00 a.m. air travel is affected at logan in boston. meteorologist ivan cabrera joining us live from the weather center with the latest. good morning, ivan. >> good morning, dave. i would say impossible. it is a dangerous go. the area of low pressure in the nor'easter, the coastal storm, is getting going. it is bombing out at this point. if this were a hurricane, it would be equal from a tropical storm to a category 2 hurricane. the winds are heavy with the heavy snowfall we are forecasting. this is not a new york storm. i'm thinking 1 to 3 inches maybe. the ground is warm. it may completely melt. new england is a different story. look at the banding. this is including eastern long
2:11 am
island and points north. gusty winds and heavy snowfall. 30-mile-an-hour wind gusts in providence. 45 in boston. this will continue to be the case through the end of the day. there are the blizzard warnings with cape cod and islands and coastal maine. 65-mile-an-hour winds. i would not be surprised to get up to hurricane-force winds this afternoon. there are the snow totals. 12 to 18 inches. a lot of shoveling no question about it. >> a lot of parents searching for patience. another school day. ivan, thank you. okay. the british prime minister wants answers from the russians today about the nerve agent attack in the uk. >> should there be no credible response, we conclude this action amounts to an unlawful use of force by the russian state against the united kingdom. >> theresa may was crystal clear, but once again on russia,

bring out the bold™ it is highly likely that russia was responsible for the act against yulia and sergei skrip skripal. this was a direct act or the russian government lost control of the damaging nerve agent. >> british prime minister tra theresa may telling the lawmakers the nerve agent used against the former spy has been identified as a substance developed by the soviet union in the 1970s. u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson standing by britain and condemning maoscow. >> tillerson said now the uk. russia continues to be an irresponsible force in the
2:17 am
instability of the world. tillerson went much further than the white house. listen. >> the attack was reckless and irresponsible. we offer the fullest condemnation and extend sympathy to the victims and families and support to the uk government. >> you are not saying russia was behind this? >> right now, we are standing with our uk ally. they are still working through the details of that. >> not necessarily. sanders said after the prime minister blamed russia for the assassination attempt. let's check in with diplomatic editor nic robertson in london. nic, she read from the prepared statement which was missing the word "russia." how much does the uk need the support of the united states? >> reporter: hugely.
2:18 am
no division and no dividing nato allies. we hear the white house did not name russia is going down very well there. we have the spokeswoman at the ministry of russia of what theresa may said was fairy tale. this is an important win on that if you will for the kremlin. they also have a russian senator who has come out and said look, by the way, he says russia stopped producing the nerve agent back in the 1990s. by september of last year it destroyed the last 2.2 pounds of nerve agent under supervision of the international chemical weapons body in charge of supervising. we are checking that out with our group right now. so far they don't have an answer for us. where this puts theresa may, we see the answer from the kremlin. the question is you did it or lost control of the nerve agent. they will not say either way.
2:19 am
this is their position. essentially denial they have not lost anything. this puts theresa may in a tough position. what sanctions can she levy? she needs strong support. you need white house support. >> should be interesting to hear a response by the end of day or not. nic robertson, thank you. march madness is here. we have the first two games in dayton. we have my friend coy wire next with the bleacher report. ...three hundred and sixty degree network of driver-assist technologies... ...and sporty performance... ...what's most impressive about the glc? all depends on your point of view. the 2018 glc. starting at $40,050.

2:32 am
>> we interviewed 73 witnesses and looked at 300,000 plus documents to find where there could be. we have seen meetings inappropriate or ill advised to have taken. we have seen chance coincidences where people bumped into each other. no collusion with the trump campaign or clinton campaign and russians. the preference for trump is not supported by the evidence. >> the president tweeting the approval in all caps. he is yelling at you praising the intel committee for finding no evidence of collusion with the 2016 campaign. one republican member of the committee tom rooney of florida offering harsh words for the panel. >> we have gone off the rails and we are a political forum for leaking information to drive the day's news. as you alluded to we have lost all credibility.
2:33 am
>> republicans move accelerating the disintegrate for the committee. committee democrats were forced into battle with the republicans. >> i think it really is all too easy and a cop-out to say that. the reality is the mission of the chairman from the beginning was to protect the president. not follow the facts where they would lead. that was a fundamental problem we had to deal with and it left us in the position of going along with a whitewash or calling out the majority every step of the way. that is the course we were forced to take. >> the gop staff this morning plan to give democrats a 150-page draft report. democrats expected to produce their own report arguing collusion did occur. >> with the committee and russia probe implodimploding, special l robert mueller is forging ahead. his boss overseeing the
2:34 am
investigation, rod rosenstein offering his support. rosenstein says the special counsel is not an unguided missile. i don't believe there is any justification at this point for terminating the special counsel. >> joining us this morning is contributor salena zito. she gets into the swing states like pennsylvania. she is with us from pittsburgh. salena, good morning. let's start with the findings of the house taenintel committee. on the far right, no evidence of collusion. on the far left, they are waiting for bob mueller and the special counsel report. if you are in the middle and sick of this crap, you listen to tom rooney. what can we make of the finding? >> tom rooney from pittsburgh by the way and part of the steeler family.
2:35 am
rooney expresses the sentiment of a lot of people. whether you are a trump hillary. this is difficult to wade through and weigh out every piece of evidence and every statement and say this is conclusive and this is what is happening. a lot of people are stepping back from the constant swirl and waiting to see what mueller says. i think once that happens, there will be more clarity not only for washington, but also for the american people. >> the leaks and the pieces of information and trying to talk to people who have been deposed. it is a lot of swirling around. let's talk about what is happening in your district. p.a. 18. what will decide that race?
2:36 am
>> well, it is really fascinating. as we all know, special elections are difficult to figure out in terms of who will win. all polling points to conor lamb having the lead. special elections you don't know who will show up on a cold tuesday to vote for a member of congress in a seat that doesn't exist anymore. the pennsylvania state supreme court redrew all of the seats. the seat these two men, rick saccone, the republican and cono rer r lamb, the democrat, doesn't exist anymore. this makes the race interesting. today, i'm looking for in terms of the deciders, i'm looking at union voters. they have not weakened their support for trump. when they look at lamb and
2:37 am
saccone, they have two men on the same page with the exception of right to work. that is taking them away from saccone and toward lamb because lamb is a right to work democrat. both men are running on the same issues. lamb has refused to criticize trump. he supports his tariffs. he is not running as a democrat, but more as an independent. >> both running against nancy pelosi. that may hold implications down the line in 2018. we will ask about the rally on saturday night. you are not just part of the districdi distri district. you were at the rally when the president came. the president talked about maxine waters and nancy pelosi and then rick saccone was the star. seth meyers put this in the proper speculative.
2:38 am
listen. -- proper perspective. listen. >> as the republican, rick saccone, he barely came up. president trump is the guy you show to the birthday party and doesn't bring a gift and sinks "stairway to heaven" ten times in a row. >> the president has made this race about him. what does that mean if saccone loses? >> well, first of all, seth has pittsburgh roots. i thought i would point that out to you. look, i tooalked to people who attended the event. the people were there for the president. what this means for the president is saccone loses is you got to put more pressure in the races. you cannot just show up a couple days ahead of time. i really do not believe based on
2:39 am
the people that i interviewed across the vast district. it took me an hour to get to a coal miners rally the other day for lamb. this is a massive district. i think that what it tells the trump administration is you have to tell better stories about your candidate. saccone did not have the best message about what he has done and what he accomplished in life. you have to have less of a race about nancy pelosi. that did not work in this race. you have to talk more about his accomplishments. i think if saccone loses, that is the trump administration has to remember going forward into the mid terms. >> it is all about pittsburgh. right? you made that very clear. >> center of the universe. >> do some exit polling for us today. we will follow you on twitter.
2:40 am
>> nice to see you. okay. stormy daniels wants to talk. her attorney sending a letter to michael cohen offering to wire $130,000 back by friday if it allows her to speak freely. cohen and the white house deny the sexual relationship with the president and adult film star. >> the source close to the president says he has been asking friends how he should handle the scandal. we are told the president is advised not to fight attempts to break the agreement. it would make him look guilty. here is stormy daniels' lawyer. >> they can run. they can hide. we are not going home. i have one out of superlatives to describe mr. cohen who expects the american people to believe he took a home equity loan out to pay $130,000 on behalf of the billionaire
