7:03 am
the vice president rejected that idea, and in a letter said he would not do so. that opened the door for today's historic second impeachment vote expected this afternoon, exactly one week, almost to the hour, after the siege on the capitol and one week before president-elect biden is sworn in as the 46th president. >> before we begin our coverage, we just want you to see something. these are actually some hopeful images from capitol hill. you're looking at a sea of thank you posters, letters, and notes, saying thank you to the police officers who faced down last week's violence. >> at least one of whom fought and gave his life doing so. we have a lot to get to, starting with nbc's chief white house correspondent kristen welker. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. president trump is defiant and sullen this morning. as he is poised to become the first president in u.s. history to be impeached twice. the proceedings already under
7:04 am
way. in a single article of impeachment, house democrats are formally accusing the president of, quote, inciting violence against the government of the united states. what makes this impeachment very different than the first, the growing number of republican lawmakers who are joining with democrats and calling for president trump to leave office now. overnight, house democrats delivering their final demand to vice president pence, use the 25th amendment to remove president trump from office, or they will impeach him. >> the resolution is adopted. >> reporter: but even before the vote took place, pence rejected the move, citing his refusal last week to follow the president's demands that he try to block the electoral college vote count. pence writing in a letter to house speaker nancy pelosi, "last week, i did not yield to pressure to exert power beyond my constitutional authority to determine the outcome of the election, and i will not now yield to efforts in the house of representatives to play political games at a time so serious in the life of our nation." it comes as a growing number of republicans are breaking ranks with the president.
7:05 am
the third most powerful house republican leader, liz cheney, saying she'll vote to impeach the president for inciting last week's violence in the capitol, accusing him of lighting the flame of this attack with his fiery remarks. >> we're going to walk down to the capitol. we will never give up. we will never concede. it doesn't happen. we fight. we fight like hell. and if you don't fight like hell, you're not going to have a country anymore. >> reporter: in a scathing statement, cheney writing, there has never been a greater betrayal by a president of the united states of his office and his oath to the constitution. cheney is the most prominent republican to publicly back impeachment, and the list is growing. >> the president's role in the insurrection is undeniable. i will vote to impeach this account. >> reporter: "the new york times" also reporting senate majority leader mitch mcconnell has told associates he believes the president has committed impeachable 0 finances and --
7:06 am
offenses and that he is pleased democrats are moving to impeach the president, because that will make it easier to purge mr. trump from the party. nbc news has reached out to the majority leader for comment. meanwhile, a defiant president trump in his first public appearance since the attack, lashing out. >> it's really a continuation of the greatest witch hunt in the history of politics. it's ridiculous. it's absolutely ridiculous. i think it is causing tremendous danger to our country, and it is causing tremendous anger. i want no violence. >> reporter: earlier, the president was pressed by nbc's kelly o'donnell about his remarks to supporters just before the insurrection began. >> what is your personal responsibility? >> it's been analyzed, and people thought that what i said was totally appropriate. >> reporter: president trump clearly not taking responsibility. meanwhile, house speaker nancy pelosi announcing nine impeachment managers overnight. these are the lawmakers who will argue the democrats' case once the articles go to the senate for a trial. now, the lead manager is congressman raskin, whose son
7:07 am
recently passed away at age 25. rudy giuliani is among those expected to represent the president in the trial. proceedings as we said already under way this morning. all setting the stage for a final vote possibly later today. the president defiant. savannah? >> kristen, thank you. that brings us to nbc's kasie hunt for more on how the day will play out on her beat on capitol hill. kasie, first of all, it is extraordinary to see any republican defections on an issue like impeachment. what do you expect today? do you think there will be more republicans who go on the cheney side of the ledger and decide that this is a vote, as she said, of conscience and vote yes? >> reporter: it is extraordinary, savannah. yesterday afternoon, tuesday, i was reporting between six and 12 republicans were prepared to vote for impeachment, and that was before we heard from liz cheney and also from mitch mcconnell. since then, we've seen people say publicly they could do it. now, as i'm talking to sources,
7:08 am
they are looking at what these other republicans are saying. there's a thought, there may be as many as 30 republicans who may be willing to break with the president. the anger is just so raw and at the forefront that many of them think they have no other option, savannah. >> of course, i mean, the vast majority of republicans will vote against impeachment. that we expect. but let's talk about the signal that came out of the senate yesterday. mitch mcconnell, the most powerful man in the senate, maybe the most powerful man in the u.s. right now, reported in "the new york times" that he was pleased that impeachment was going forward, and that he was -- he thought it would be easier than to purge trump, once and for all, from the party. this is the kind of thing that does not happen by accident. >> reporter: that's right, savannah. it absolutely does not. this is the equivalent of white smoke coming out of mitch mcconnell's office, signaling that he is willing to move forward with this trial in a way
7:09 am
that may result in the conviction of president trump. he's said to potentially be coming down on that side. and if he were to vote to convict president trump here, it's entirely possible, perhaps even likely, that they would get the 16 other republicans to vote to convict. that, of course, would likely also bar president trump from future office for the rest of his life. so this could be the final action that republicans in the senate take, as president trump is on his way out of office. savannah? >> there's real suspense today, what happens on the hill. kasie, appreciate it. meantime with the inauguration a week away, federal authorities are stepping up warnings about potential, new attacks. investigators looking into ongoing threats in washington and all across the country, as dozens of arrests are made in connection with last week's violent riot. nbc's tom costello is following that part of the story for us. tom, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. so a week until inauguration, and a lot is happening here in downtown d.c.
7:10 am
to begin with, 9-foot high fencing is now completely circling the perimeter of the capitol building. we have streets all across downtown d.c. blocked off. i'm going to ask my photographer, andy, to pan over to our left because buildings all around d.c. right now are boarding up to protect their glass facades against any potential further violence. andy, do a 360. go completely behind you. i want to show you, we have national guard troop carriers in the streets that are now blocking the streets. we're told national guard troops who come in here, up to 15,000 of them, will, in fact, be armed. meantime, the fbi processing 100,000 tips, arresting dozens of people. that's only just the beginning. with washington already on high alert, growing concerns this morning that far right extremists may be plotting even more attacks at the capitol and around the country. lawmakers briefed about the security situation are raising the alarm.
7:11 am
warning of grave concerns about ongoing and violent threats, even with increased security. >> the idea that these people out there are so hostile and deranged, angry, and violent, they'd still be planning these types of attacks knowing what the security presence is like, it tells you something about their intentions and their state of mind, which is, in fact, chilling and harrowing. >> reporter: the new threats ahead of next week's inauguration come as federal prosecutors opened more than 170 cases, charging people for last week's attempted insurrection. the fbi expects to arrest hundreds more in the coming weeks and months. as investigators say they're now just scratching the surface of a mountain of digital evidence. >> regardless of if it was a trespass in the capitol or if someone planted a pipe bomb, you will be charged and you will be found. >> reporter: the fbi warning of armed protests in all 50 states. some states have already begun boarding up capitol buildings and deploying national guard troops.
7:12 am
but intel officials tell nbc news, chatter about those plans has now shifted in recent days to encrypted messaging platforms. some of them calling for violence against government officials on inauguration day. how big of a threat is the united states facing right now? >> this threat is real. it's present, and the american public should know that law enforcement is working around the clock to make sure that this threat is kept at bay. >> reporter: meanwhile, the incoming senate majority leader is calling on the fbi to add anyone involved in the attack to the national airline no fly list. >> once you're considered a threat to the homeland, you should and must be placed on the no fly list. >> reporter: the fbi says it's considering adding rioters to the no fly list, but the bureau is facing questions about missed intel that could have prevented last week's riot. including an online threat uncovered by the fbi office in norfolk, virginia, that told people going to washington to be ready to fight and "go there ready for war."
7:13 am
complete with detailed attack plans. >> that information, when my office received that information, we briefed that within 40 minutes to our law enforcement partners. >> reporter: also new this morning, according to senior fbi officials familiar with the matter, intelligence analysts at the fbi did not share the threat assessments picked up online with capitol police beforehand, fearing doing so could have violated free speech protections. >> tom, you pointed out the fbi is looking at all the tapes of the rioters inside the capitol. there are reports a u.s. olympic swimmer, a gold medalist, was seen among the group? >> reporter: "the new york times" and "washington post" are reporting that keller, who was on usa's olympic team, swimming with michael phelps, he has been recognized on video inside the rotunda, and teammates also recognized him, in part, because of how tall he is and he was wearing a usa olympic swimming
7:14 am
jacket. an olympic jacket. we've reached out to try to confirm that that is him. we have not been able to reach him. he has, it appears, deleted his social media accounts. both "the new york times" and "washington post" reporting it is him, and teammates allegedly also said that's him. we should make one more point. the fbi is encouraging people across the country, if you were in the rotunda or if you were in the capitol illegally, turn yourself in. the charges the people are going to face are potentially carrying up to 20 years in prison. turn yourself in now. guys, back to you. >> tom costello for us at the capitol, thank you. unfortunately, we have a huge other story we're following, the covid crisis. craig joins us for the latest on it. hi, craig. >> savannah, hoda, good morning. good morning to you, as well. both deaths and the number of americans hospitalized with the virus have soared to new records. take a look at this, folks. take a look at the jump in cases. the united states started the year with 20 million. today, that number is nearly 23 million.
7:15 am
that means almost 3 million cases added in less than 2 weeks. this morning, the government is taking new steps to curb the spread. nbc's erin mclaughlin joins us from los angeles with more on that. erin, good morning to you. >> reporter: craig, good morning. the cdc has announced new travel restrictions in an attempt to stop new strains of the coronavirus from entering the country. 30 states are now reporting a rise in confirmed covid-19 cases, as the dreaded post holiday surge begins to take hold. this morning, the cdc announcing it will require all passengers to test negative for covid before being allowed into the united states. according to the new rules which go into effect in two weeks, international passengers must be tested within three days of departure. if the passenger does not comply, the airline must deny boarding. it's part of an all-out effort to stop new strains of covid from entering the country. with a more contagious uk
7:16 am
variant now found in at least 11 states, including most recently, maryland. >> we may have found it faster than other people, but i think it's pretty much everywhere across the country. it's much more contagious. >> reporter: this as a deadly wave of covid-19 crashes across california. >> we had a vision that 2021 would be different, but the fact that it could get worse is kind of unimaginable at this point. >> reporter: in the bay area, icu capacity has dipped below 5%. some hospitals in the north now seeing the kinds of numbers that have plagued the southern part of the state for weeks. >> i think this is the tip of the iceberg. that's my concern, is that we're still on the upswing. >> reporter: at harbor ucla medical center, makeshift isolation rooms are packed with desperately ill patients. oxygen supplies for two are being stretched to four, as medical staff scramble to make it work. >> we have nurses and nursing assistants who are kind of working in teams to try to provide icu care, but many of
7:17 am
the people providing that care are, in fact, not icu-trained personnel. >> reporter: so every day, you're kind of having to make it up as you go? >> it's like puzzles and a jigsaw. we're just moving pieces around, trying to make things fit. >> reporter: the cdc says the travel restrictions are meant to slow the current surge. not only does it require international travelers to get tested before departure, it recommends they get tested three to five days after arrival, as well. they also suggest people self-quarantine for a week. craig? >> erin mclaughlin in los angeles. we should note just ahead, we're going to take a closer look at major, new changes when it comes to who now qualifies for that vaccine, ladies. >> big story, craig. thank you. let us get our first check of the weather. al, good morning. >> good morning, guys. got a coast to coast system going on. it starts out in the pacific with all this moisture, this tropical plume, this atmospheric river. it is a narrow band that comes up and over the cascade ridge.

in a cost-cutting measure. now, that massive mega millions jackpot we've been telling you about, good news and bad news this morning. the bad news is there were no tickets matching all six numbers in last night's drawing, so no one takes home the prize which brings us, of course, to the good news. the jackpot is on the rise $750 million up for grabs in friday's drawing if you can't manage to wait until then, there's always powerball. that's tonight that drawing worth a cool $550 million. now to a new concern tied to the threats of more extremist violence in washington and at all 50 state capitols. ahead of next week's inauguration. >> as police and the military work to tighten security, there are mounting questions this morning about potential sympathizers in their own ranks. >> nbc's gabe gutierrez is at the michigan state capitol in lansing. hey, gabe. good morning. >> reporter: hoda, good morning. michigan's attorney general tells us that authorities plan
7:33 am
to put up new fencing to protect the state capitol behind me. lansing's mayor is calling on the governor to deploy the national guard across the country, there are also concerns that some in law enforcement may sympathize with the extremists this morning, from virginia to texas to michigan, state capitols are bracing for potentially violent protests this weekend. >> this is not what american democracy looks like. >> reporter: but there's also growing scrutiny of those tasked with keeping the peace police departments from philadelphia to seattle are opening investigations into allegations that some off duty officers may have been involved in last week's insurrection in washington >> if any spd employee participated directly in assaulting the u.s. capitol, i will terminate them >> reporter: officers in virginia and maryland have already been put on leave, and several capitol police officers have been suspended. at least ten more are under investigation. >> clearly, chiefs have got to make sure that every person within the ranks has a clear expectation of their behavior
7:34 am
and is not in any way facilitating or participating in any of these extremist activities. >> reporter: meanwhile, the military's top generals are reminding service members that any act to disrupt the constitutional process is not only against our traditions, values, and oath, it is against the law. several people involved in last week's attack had served in the military, including jake angeli, who became one of the faces of the riot, donning a fur hat and horns. he served two years in the navy. larry rendall brock jr. is a retired air force officer. they've both been arrested officer ashli babbitt was shot and killed by police during the chaos. concerns over far right extremists are especially tense here in michigan where armed militia members crowded into the capitol last april to protest covid lockdown restrictions. michigan's attorney general says some officers sympathized with that movement. >> you'll see a number of law
7:35 am
enforcement agents who were taking selfies with the individuals that had taken over the capitol. so is it a concern to me it is a concern. >> gabe, she's very concerned, michigan's attorney general we just heard from. she's saying their capitol is not safe why not? >> reporter: hoda, just this week, michigan banned open carry of firearms inside the state capitol, but concealed carry is still allowed. michigan's attorney general said the move didn't go far enoug because you might remember last year the armed militia members that came into the capitol, some of them were later arrested, months later, for the alleged plot to kidnap michigan's governor hoda >> gabe gutierrez, thank you. coming up next, we'll go back to the covid crisis and the major changes to expand the vaccine rollout and make shots available to more americans. >> but people who do qualify are finding it's not so simple to get one. we are live with a closer look at the confusion, coming up right afteter this

7:41 am
vaccinating every adult 65 or older, as well as people with pre-existing conditions. >> with the case counts we face now, there is absolutely no time to waste we need doses going to where they'll be administered quickly and where they'll protect the most vulnerable. >> reporter: federal officials say they are confident pfizer and moderna will come through with the supply needed, announcing that vaccines being held back to ensure enough second doses will now be released instead what about the people at home saying, wow, you know, i'm 67. now i qualify. fantastic. when am i going to get it? >> yeah. i think if you're above 65, you absolutely should be, ideally, able to get it in the upcoming few weeks. states need vaccination sites, they need vaccinators. there's a bunch of work to be done. >> reporter: there are already signs of trouble with the first wave of vaccinations the cdc says only 9.3 million doses have actually been given, out of more than 27 million distributed. frustration and confusion is a common theme

a caregiver in georgia struggling to schedule an appointment. >> such poor planning. i mean, seriously. i called again this morning, starting at 8:30, 194 times on my cell phone, and never got through. >> reporter: this couple in upstate new york, who are now eligible themselves, still can't get vaccines for their 90-year-old parents. >> it is confusing it's confusing the process of getting to a website for an elderly person is confusing and making the arrangements confusing. >> stephanie, the federal government now is releasing those second doses that had been being held off and safeguarded so that there would be enough for folks to get that second dose now, they're saying let them all out at once. why are folks, the officials, so confident there's going to be enough >> reporter: well, savannah, they're getting good news from
7:43 am
the pharmaceutical companies about the production of the vaccine. they say that just as notable as the development of the vaccine has been this manufacturing process. pfizer now says the company is on target to manufacture 2 billion doses in 2021. that's about double their original projection for this year so it's pretty good news on that front. savannah >> it is stephanie, thank you very much hopefully soon, they'll be able to flood the zone, you know, and people can get the vaccines they so badly need. >> absolutely. speaking of someone eligible for a vaccine, mr. roker. >> thank you for pointing that out. >> i'm just saying it is great news. >> thank you very much okay [ laughter ] anyway, 30 degrees above average in the plains. feeling like fall. look at this bismarck, 55 degrees 30 degrees above average wichita, 64. 41 in chicago. tomorrow that all moves east buffalo, 41. eight degrees above average. raleigh, warmer than usual, nashville, as well don't get used to it we have an arctic blast coming in on friday morning look at some of the temperatures
