7:06 am
administration post, and then getting ready to present them to president-elect donald trump. it means that starting today, we'll start to get a better sense of who he will pick to run this city and this nation. donald trump's white house taking shape. his transition team working fast to figure out who goes where. multiple campaign sources tell nbc news high-profile people are in the mix for high-profile positions. like chris christie, newt gingrich, and didn't rule out attorney general rumors. >> i certainly have the energy and there is probably nobody that knows the justice department better than me. >> reporter: former congressman mike rogers giving a "no comment" to word he could be cia chief. all on a specialist for special security clearance. nbc's cynthia mcfadden reports exclusively that the president-elect's team has named nearly 30 people to whom they'd like to give access to the most sensitive details of american foreign policy.
7:07 am
the military, like senator jeff sessions and retired general mike flynn. maybe not outsiders, but some are outspoken. like john bolton, an ambassador to the u.n. under president bush. political insiders hunting for clues in trump's every move. like his decision to bring son-in-law jared kushner to the white house thursday walking the south lawn with president obama's chief of staff. kushner won't get that job. federal law prohibits relatives from taking paid staff positions. that rules out ivanka, donned junior and eric, too. but overnight, trump staffers submitting ideas for other names as the transition team puts together a list of up to five options for each cabinet position. aiming for geographic diversity, not all from new york or d.c. trump values loyalty and that will likely be rewarded with steve bannon, his controversial campaign ceo, reportedly one
7:08 am
another, rnc chair reince priebus. >> i would be honored to continue to help him in any way that i can. >> reporter: trump's transition team has an official government website, not only intended to try to draw in some folks for names for political appointee positions, but also, in true donald trump fashion touts his many trump properties, hotels and golf courses around the world. >> hallie jackson, thanks. andyar george w. bush's chief of staff. of course heavily involved in the bush team's transition to the white house. mr. card, good morning. you are the perfect guest to be here this morning. let's talk about the tone of transition before we get into the mechanics. you were there. the outgoing president really sets that tone. we've seen how president obama has responded. and he gave a lot of credit to your boss, former president bush, for setting a proper tone as well. >> president obama did a wonderful job yesterday kind of
7:09 am
are awkward. i happen to think we celebrate our democracy by best showing that we can transfer power without being ugly. president obama certainly did a good job. president bush created the good precedent. he allowed for the transitions to be done actually before the election. there was a lot of work done. president obama continued that tradition and actually got some support from the congress. so this year, both teams that were competing -- trump and clinton -- had transition teams that had been working since done for this transition than any time in history. >> i know you believe that the chief of staff job is the first one he should address. tell me why. >> well, the chief of staff -- the only bureaucracy in washington that is not kind of dictated by congress happens to be the bureaucracy at the white house. the president gives definition to the country and certainly to the world who about the united states is. but the chief of staff gives
7:10 am
president to name a chief of staff very, very early on. president clinton when he came to office, about the last person he named to be on his inner circle meant most of the people in the cabinet or the white house had already been identified and a matt didn't really have the gravitas given to him to help manage the daily operations of the white house. so i think it is important to name a chief of staff very early. it should be someone who can speak candidly to the it should be someone who is there not to please the president, even though they serve at the pleasure of the president. they've got to tell the president what he needs to know, no the necessarily what he wants to know. even though the little piece of paper that is fancy that hangs on your wall that you all brag about, it says that you serve at the pleasure of the president for the time being. it is redundant and it is insecurity on purpose. but your job is not to win the president's pleasure.
7:11 am
he needs to know to do the job. >> a lot of people have observed that this time of transition before january 20th and the days and months after, in some ways the country is at its most vulnerable because you have new people coming in and learning these jobs, and everybody thinks about national security. tell me what's done -- give some reassurance about how the new administration will be ready. >> the new administration -- first of all, they will be very organized and planned. they'll probably have a 100-day plan and expected to happen click, click, click, perfectly. but the reality is the world doesn't follow the 100-day plan. something bad will happen and someone will test us, one of our enemies will think they have a vulnerable opportunity for the united states to expose it efse and they will do something. you have to be ready for that. you have to plan for it but you don't have to broadcast it. but yes, on day one, the president is the president. it's not like the transition to be president is a process.
7:12 am
the responsibility and you have to be prepared for bad things to happen. >> president bush even implemented -- they called it a table read, almost a drill to have that new team meet with the old team so they'd be ready for anything. >> president bush, george w. bush, did a great job of preparing the obama incoming team with real kind tabletop exercises about a disaster. and it was very helpful. >> andy card, great to have you here. when it became clear on election night that donald trump would be elected, there were street. but thursday the dow surged more than 200 points to close at a record high. ali velshi is nbc's chief business correspondent. he's at the stock exchange. ali, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, lester. good morning, savannah. important to note that the dow was actually doing pretty well, so the idea it hit a record has a lot to do with the idea that markets generally go up. they don't go up in a straight line but they go up in fits and
7:13 am
starts. the concept of a trump presidency combined with the senate and house is making a lot of industries think they'll do very well. industries like coal where donald trump says he will bring it back and banking and finance. it is not really market, it is investors finding companies and industries that are likely to do well under this administration and buying up lots of it. futures this morning indicate that the dow may open lower but again, it is not a sign of larger sentiment. it waiting to sell some stocks and now that the market is at a record, they'll do so. that's basically what's going on on markets today but i'll be here to follow it. >> ali, thanks very much. hillary clinton meantime getting much needed peace and quiet after a long, grueling campaign. take a look at this photo. a woman actually spotted her out on a hike on thursday near clinton's home in chappaqua, new york. man behind that shot, former president bill clinton. margot says secretary clinton
7:14 am
brings clinton supporters some hope or some comfort. newly released video shows the horrifying moments from inside and outside the pulse nightclub at orlando during the shooting rampage in june. body camera video shows police storming the building. you can see officers running in all directions with their weapons drawn looking for survivors and for the shooter, omar mateen. disco lights are still on. you can hear cell much of the video was blacked out to protect the victims. 49 people were killed, 53 others wounded during that rampage. erin shock was indicted on thursday on 24 counts, including wire fraud and theft of government funds. shock was criticized for spending thousands of dollars redecorating his capitol hill office in the style of the television series "downton abbey."
7:15 am
never intentionally did anything wrong and that he is eager to defend his name and reputation. secretary of state john kerry has gone where no high-ranking u.s. official has gone before. he's in antarctica for a two-day trip to talk about scientists about the impact of climate change. during his visit, kerry is going to a research station that the u.s. government operates near the south pole. that's kind of a cool adventure. >> and a nice transition to al and the weather. good morning. >> good morning, guys. ad nino earlier this morning. now we are talking about la nina. that is when we start to see a cooling of the pacific waters, cooler than normal as you get closer to the equator. we get la nina. it pushes the polar jet stream up to the north. from december to february we're looking for cooler, wetter weather from the pacific northwest into the great lakes. warm and dry through the southeast, gulf coast and the southwest. not good news because we've got a really strong drought going on
