you caught up on. "early today" starts right now. good to be with you on a monday morning. i'm frances rivera. the country has a new reigning super bowl champion. >> and time runs out! >> this is the end of the game. >> and for the philadelphia eagles, the long drought is over. finally. >> fly, eagles fly. that was heard roaring through the stadium and through philly streets shortly after the massive win. thousands going on to celebrate the eagles's first super bowl win in franchise history. dee throning the new england patriots 41-33 in a fourth quarter stunner that had millions across the country glued to their seats. >> wow, the world champions! [cheering and applauding] >> for eagles fans everywhere, this is for them. this is for them. >> not only do we have the best fans in the world. we now have the best team in the
4:02 am
world. >> eagles quarterback nick foles had the game of his life. knocking off tom brady with an impressive 373 passing yards, three touchdowns and a super bowl mvp trophy to boot. to say it was an improbable run for foles is an understatement. the second string quarterback took the lead for eagles midway through the season only to become the first play in nfl history to throw for and catch a touchdown in a super bowl. the eagles led the game for the first three quarters and in the first half after that gutsy catch by foles. only for the patriots to claw their way back, taking a 33-32 lead for the magical touchdown by five-time super bowl champ tom brady. but with over two minutes left in the game, it was an incredible jump into the end zone by zach ertz that gave the eagles the go ahead score. and they never looked back, sacking brady, taking control of the ball, scoring a 46-yard field goal to extend their lead. ultimately leading brady and the patriots with no options and no time outs.
4:03 am

4:04 am
release. arguing that it proves the special counsel's investigation into russia's election meddling cannot be trusted. the president tweeting this memo totally vindicates trump in probe, but the russian witch hunt goes on and on. there was no collusion and there was no obstruction. still there are those with the gop who say otherwise. here was congressman trey gowdy who had a hand in writing that gop memo. >> i actually don't think it has any impact on the russia probe for this reason. >> the memo has no impact on the russia probe? >> not to me it doesn't and i was pretty integrally involved in the drafting of it. >> this all comes as democrats push the congress and president to accept their own competing memo demanding it be released to the public as they accuse republicans of waging opposition campaign against the russia investigation and fbi and as we learn new details regarding one of the former trump aides at the center of that memo. for more let's go to nbc's tracie potts. tracie, good morning.

>> reporter: hi, frances, good morning. that aide is carter page. he was working with russia and wanted to monitor his communications. as evidence they took to the secret fisa court this dossier that had unverified information. it was paid for by democrats, according to republicans. they didn't tell the court that at the time, and then the authorization to spy on carter page was renewed four times without the court knowing that information. but carter page was already on the government's radar. we have reporting now from "the wall street journal" that they knew or suspected carter page of having these links to the kremlin as far back as 2013. in fact, time magazine obtained a letter where carter page himself talks about that, saying that he served as an advisor to the kremlin in preparation for the g-20 summit at that time next month. now, carter page has not been
4:06 am
charged with any crimes. that's important to note. also important to note, he may not be the end of this investigation. >> this completes just the fisa abuse portion of our investigation. we are in the middle of what i call phase two of our investigation which involves other departments, specifically the state department and some of the involvement that they had in this. >> so, here's what you want to look out for today. the republican version of the facts is already out. democrats say they've got their version and that committee could vote on whether to release the democrats' classified version today. frances? >> all right, we'll see what happens. tracie, thank you. an amtrak train traveling from new york to florida slammed into a parked freight train in south carolina killing two amtrak employees. over 100 others were taken to the hospital. authorities say the miami bound train appeared to be on the wrong track when it collude lied with a freight train. it also caused 5,000 gallons of fuel to spill. this is the second deadly amtrak

crash in less than a week and the third since the crash in washington state last december. nbc's jennifer johnson gives us more details. >> reporter: a horrific scene near casey, south carolina, the mangled wreckage of amtrak train 91 and csx freight train. the trains collided just after 2 2:30 a.m. when most were asleep. >> it crossed like you would not believe. >> reporter: sources say just before the crash all csx signals were off line. csx gave verbal approval for amtrak to proceed down a set of tracks but the track switch was in the wrong position sending the amtrak directly into the parked freight train. >> key to this investigation is learning why that switch was lined that way because the expectation, of course, is that the amtrak would be cleared and would be operating straight down like this. >> reporter: most of the 139
4:08 am
passengers traveling from new york to florida were taken to hospitals, most with nonthreatening injuries. >> we should have had a lot more casualties, but we didn't. >> reporter: emergency workers se say removing so many injured was a monumental task. >> we were able to get 116 patients to the hospital in a timely manner. >> reporter: this is the second amtrak crash in less than a week. on wednesday a train carrying dozens of memorandum ers are of congress in west virginia hit a truck killing the truck's passenger. jennifer johnson, nbc news, washington. >> now to more fall out involving gymnastics doctor larry nassar. they will now require gymnasts to be chaperoned by someone other than their coaches at upcoming events. in a letter to staff, coaches and parents, usa gymnastics said it will no longer compete at major events in canada and italy. nassar is accused of sexually abusing more than 150 girls and
