7:03 am
it is not going anywhere any time soon the driver of this car, we saw this driver rescued by firefighters yesterday, one of many trapped in those icy flooding waters. ferocious waves, flooded cities and frozen streets creating chaos in boston. >> unquestionably the worst i've seen it down here. >> reporter: oh, my god, i kept seeing it come closer and closer. it's like oh no. >> it was pounding. it was hitting the seawall and e poles. >> reporter: homes and businesses flooded by several feet of water, that water freezing in place trapp streets of cars this happened all in a matter of 45 minutes. >> reporter: lifeboats deployed in the roads pulling loads of pedestrians to safety and just south a family trapped in their home was rescued by a tractor climbing into the bucket so could escape. plus treacherous driving conditions leaving many without a paddle. one person trying to brave the weather steering straight into
7:04 am
frigid floodwaters only making ay before the headlights flicker and the engine goes dead. the driver then forced to get out of the car and walk to dry land. dozens taken hospital and the bitter bomb keeps climbing. >> we immediately knew there was some sort of taking everyone over. >> a teenage girl killed and three dozen others hospitalized after an entire building filled with carbon monoxide. >> people were laying on the hallway floors. you can't stay here minute. >> reporter: here in boston just to show you these temperatures are and how encased this car is, you can see ice going nowhere. the tire the wind blowingd now i'm having to brace little against the car t keep from getting knocked over and that is the major concern here. these subzero temperatures feels like temperatures we will be ehe days like making this road turn into ice. guys. >> brutal. >> it sure is brutal. also in long island more than a foot of snow there. gio benitez is there. george good morning. yeah, yo than a foot of s and i got to tell you for much of longt
7:05 am
paralyzed by all of the snow. i want to turn to our drone camera and show you what's going on. in other snowstormses what we've seen it warms up after the snow and starts to melt. not the case here because we're talking about frigid temperatures. where i'm standing right now, 11 degrees. with that windchill, negative 15 degrees. how cold is it? you see that back there, it looks like a bunch of snow. that's actually a lake that's just totally frozen over george. >> and that windchill is going to get worse. >> it is going to get worse, george, in fact there is a windchill advisory in effect right now. that's in effect through 10:00 a.m. tomorrow. >> thanks very much. george we in eva's g in ston. a lot of concern about rivers freezing over in this extreme cold.ard ice cutters are out there freeing trapped vessels. abc's adrienne bankert is on one of them in the hudson river. good morning, adrienne. >> reporter: whoo good morning to you too, robin. minus 23 windchill here where
7:06 am
we're standing. me. this looks like the road but it is the river. this is the hudson. that expansive ice coating this body of water. we're here on u.s. coast guard cutter "sturgeon bay" and this 40-foot vessel is here to try to break a path in this ice. we're just about to take off here and just see exactly what this crew does on a daily basis, in fact their trip extended because these temperatures have been so low. they've been out here since monday and they're going to be freeing some other tugs and barges along the river that are stuck that cannot traverse this kind of ice, in fact a vessel like this one can actually move right through 2 inches of ice without even messing around. they can cut through three feet of ice using a ramming technique, robin, back to you. > sounds like they've been mighty busy responding to call, adrienne. >> reporter: they absolutely have. and we'll be actually with them as they try to free up a couple of tugs and barges this morning.
7:07 am
>> we heard whoo how you started. you stay safe out there. >> reporter: yes. down south and road conditions there getting worse as well as plummeting temperatures turn that snow ice. drivers don't have a lot of experience with conditions like this and sometimes salt doesn't even work. >> reporter: that's right, george. you know, what happe here la melted and now there are patches of black ice on then, of cour doesn't colder it gets the closer it gets t degreesdown hereeople have trouble finding it because they don't sell it. essentially the important thing to note anything that melts melts iwater, dissolves in will melt salt and actually used a couple things to try to show you. one is coffee grinds this is baking soda which wasn't as successful but our winner with a bullet is common table sugar. this is sugar that we laid out about an hour ago and is working and anyone looking for a bag of salt and can't find one can use.
7:08 am
much like salt has the same limitations once it gets closer to 10 degrees it won't work either. >> steve, thank you very much. >> got to get creative down south. to that new storm in the white house. reports president trump attempted to stop his attorney general, jeff sessions were recusing himself this as fallout grows from that bombshell book "fire and fury," our senior white house correspondent cecilia vega has the latest on all of this. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: hey, robin, good morning. that book hit the stands earlier than expected this morning actually but it is that old controversy that's back in the headlines. overnight "the new york times" reporting president trump gave firm instructions to the white house's top lawyer to stop his attorney general from recusing himself in the russia investigation saying the president believed it was jeff sessions job to protect him. the paper says after the appointment of special robert mueller the president erupted at mr. sessions for recusing himself and when sent his resignation letter the next day, "the times" reports th rejected
7:09 am
it. and president trump's determination to fire former fbi director james comey l one white house lawyer to take the extraordinary step of misleading the president about whether he authority to remove him. that fallout from the russia probe featured in the explosive ut deite t pre demanding author and his publisher, they moved up the release date. we see "fire and fury" as an extraordinary contribution to our national die. that is not how completely a gossip full of false and fraudulent claims. >> reporter: in the book former chief strategist steve bannon is quoted attacking the president children. saying of daughter ivanka people suddenly realized she's dumb a brick and calling that now infamous trump tower meeting between donald junior jared kushner and a russian lawyerho they thought had dirt on hillary clinton treasonous and un unpatriotic. we asked the president about his old friend. >> did steve bannon betray you, mr. president? any words about
7:10 am
>> i don't know. he called me a great man last night so know obviously changed his tune pretty quick. that's just a misnomer. >> reporter: also facing the threat of a lawsuit from the president's legal team bannon is p >> the president of the united states is a great man, you know i support him day in and day out. >> reporter: but this morning the book has the white house facing questions about the president's mental stability. wolff doesn't name names but he claims advisers had concerns writing, the worry among staffers trump's rambling and g repetitions had significantly increased and that his ability to stay focused never great had notably declined. press secretary sarah sanders firing back.s disgraceful and laughable. if he was unfit he probably wouldn't be there. >> reporter: well, the president feels the same way. he is furious tweeting the book is full of lie, misrepresentations and of the author he says look at this guy's past and watch what happens to him and sloppy steve so a new nickname for steve bannon now hoping to stop thesehisstration
7:11 am
from the start, a new rule. aides can noir personal cel phones into the white ho sean thanks for coming in. >> happy new year. >> happy new year to you. the president said he authorized no access to michael wolff but he did have pretty wide access to the west wing. >> i think there is a question about what the president authorized and whether or not michael wolff set up individual meetings with staffers. i met with him and several authors. as you know you've been in the white house before, i had never met him. he was writing a book on the president an wanted to introduce himself to me and i afforded him the courtesy and spoke to him several types about questions that he had, but it's pretty clear from what i understand that he met with steve bannon on multiple occasions. >> and others in the west wing. >> as far as i'm aware, yeah but those are individual meetings set up with those staffers. steve is the only one that i'm aware of right now that's actually admitted to meeting with him. >> he says quite a bit about you in the book.
7:12 am
says your personal mantra was you can't make this blank up. something i can't say on morningtrue. >>e question about whether or not some of these instances were -- i said you can't make this up but, again i think one of the problems that we're seeing with this book and it's not just trump staffers and white house officials pushing back but seeing a lot of mainstream media members calling into question the soueven the author's note at the beginning of the bookes that in many cases he took anecdotes and sort of rephrased them. the sourcing as -- >> basically t a story you think is basically true. >>hink there's some anecdotes that may true but the problem i have george with this book as with many stories is if you can't -- if it's or 50% that the reader io know and which is >> the stuff he wrote you is true. >> some of the quotes he has but the context in which they're given aren't and i think that's the problem. i can say something to you right now and you could weave it into a story in three weeks. is the quote accurate.
7:13 am
affect in which i'm giving it in no. >> you were one of the sources. is it smart for the president to try to stop publication of this book? doesn't that run against the first amendment? >> i think there is a difference between defamation and reporting and in some cases where you're making wild accusations about the president and his family he has a right to defend himself. >> a lot of focus oibility of obstruction of justice. we learned from "the new york times" again this morning that spert mueller is investigating that in the white house. >> i don't think that's any -- i think that's been previously reported that that was being looked at so that's not some kind of shocker. >> thought shocker but there were new details where we see the president asking his counsel to try to stop jeff sessions from resigning, from recusing himself from the russia investigation. were you aware that have. >> i wasn't at the time but i think it's no secret the president's made it very clear that he didn't want -- he didn't feel as though attorney general sessions need to recuse himself from this matter. and that he wanted a robust defense of something he doesn't
7:14 am
think that he's been wrongly accused of. >> did he really say according to "the new york times" where is my roy cohen? >> i don't know what he said. that's "the new york times" according to anonymous sources not that i'm aware of. >> what you do know? you know a fair amount about the firing of james comey. you had to go out the night that happened. you laid it all on the deputyrney general rod rosenstein at that time. >> correct. >> that turned out no the to be true. >> i went with the information i had at the time. >> who gave you that information. >> i think the counsel's office laid it out very clear how the process had worked authority to fire rod rosen or the fbi director laid solely with the deputy attorney general as far as organizationally how that worked out that there was a letter that the deputy attorney general had written to the president, to the attorney general laying out the case for the firing of jim comey as fbi director. the attorney general concurred and brought it to the president. that was the information that i was given and that was the information -- >> we know now for several days at least the president had been talking about firing james comey, had talked to reince priebus your direct boss about
7:15 am
that as well. you weren't aware of that at all. >> no. >> this article says brooeb priebus turned over notebooks to the special counsel and also been notebooks as well from your time in the rnc and white house. did you turn those over to the special counsel. >> all i'll say is that as a press person it shouldn't come as any surprise you write down this reporter called, this is the time they called. this is the questions they had and sometimes the response that you're going to give. beyond that i'm not going to comment on the special counsel or anything going on with respect to that. >> it gets into the episode when you were still at the white house where the president was working on a false statement about don junior's meeting at d it talks about you being out of the loop on that and being h was wr >> correct and, again, all i'll say is that i'm not even going to get into the merits of the statement or not but just say i was not aware of the drafting of that statement. >> it taste mark corolla resigned because he thought it could be justice. are you confident the president did not wrong? far as aspect?
7:16 am
as far a collusion, absolutely. i was there for most of the end part of the campaign. i know that didn't happen. there were several folks in the media that didn't give us credit for colluding with ourselves never mind with any kind of foreign government. so to suggest that happened and the underlying premise of this whole thing i think is pretty clear that there was no collusion. >> b're not confident the president did nothing wrong with respect to his actions in the white house, the firing of james comey, the putting out of this -- >> i think as far as the firing of james comey, it's been pretty clear the president has the authority to fire anyone within the federal government that he sees fit isn't doing the duty that is appropriate for that job. so, i don't think there's any question about his ability to fire jim comey or anyone else in th a >> i don't but, again, it's a investigation. i' of it but as far a and from what i saw, no there was nothing done tha i was inwrote or il>> thanks. back to ginger. even colder windchills tomorrowlder windchills tomorrow morning, philadelphia beating out bismarck. let's get to the weeke
