7:04 am
out from the heavy, wet snow. michael? >> thank you, clayton. the storm is heading to the northeast. rob, you're tracking it. what can we expect? >> another nor'easter. like the one we had last week. this thing is spinning up here. that part of the storm is maturing. this is what it's done in parts of western minnesota. 14 inches of snow. blizzard warnings out for the plains. this energy will be kicked to a coastal low. we have winter storm warnings posted for the northeast. these two lows interchange. by the time it get off the carolina coastline, during the day tomorrow, rain, wind, snow, heavy at times. snow along the i-95 corridor. we could see six to 12 inches of it. less in the bigger cities. a high-impact event. some schools will be closed. more on this lout the show. you know, i'm wait for rob to say, we're going have 6 to 12 days of straight sunshine. >> keep waiting on that. >> coming in june or may.

>> come on. not until then. we have the breaking news overseas now. the leader of nofrt korea making a rare appearance at a high-stakes meeting with south korea. signaling what could be a major change on nuclear weapons. our chief foreign correspondent terry moran has the latest. >> reporter: this looks like major break through. this morning, south korean officials returning from talks in north korea, including the meeting with kim jong-un himself. the north korean regime wants to talk directly with the u.s. government to discuss denuclearization on the korean men nins la and normalizing relations. during negotiations, north korea will halt additional nuclear and missile tests. third, the north has pledged to never use nuclear or conventi conventional weapons with south korea. a direct hotline will be set up between the leaders of north and south korea. the south korean delegation was
7:06 am
told north korea believes if military threats are removed, they have no need for nuclear weapons. >> all of this sounds good. the u.s. government has to be wary. >> reporter: they will certainly start from a position of suspicion, robin. suspicion that kim jong-un is trying to peel korea away from the eye lines with the u.s. make no mistake, what happened today, somewhat happening today, represents an extraordinary new chapter in the tense standoff between the u.s. and north korea. and maybe, just maybe, robin, a hopeful chapter. >> it's promising. >> we'll watch for the president's response. now to the bizarre turn in the russia investigation. former trump aide sam nunberg refuses to appear before the special counsel. but he says he believes mueller may have something on president trump. pierre thomas has the litest. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, george. a little known adviser to
7:07 am
president trump's campaign who was fired, dominated the headlines yesterday. appearances so odd, he was asked if he was intoxicated. by tend of the day it came to this for sam nunberg. a past political adviser. >> i have smelled alcohol on your breath. >> i have not had a drink. no, i have not. >> anything else? >> no. >> reporter: in day of accusations at one point, nunberg suggesting on cnn that the president knew about the trump tower meeting with the russians set up to get dirt on candidate hillary clinton before it happened. >> there's been a consistent message from team trump, which is that donald trump himself did not know about this meeting. >> what do you think? >> you tell me. >> i mean, it's -- the you see there's something he said, i already saw, that within a week, or he said something, we're going find something out about hillary clinton within a week. i don't know why he couldn't just admit he knew about this meeting. >> you believe he knew about
7:08 am
that meeting? >> i think he knew it. >> reporter: nunberg said trump may have done something wrong during the campaign. >> you to think they have something on the president? >> i think they may. >> why? >> i think he may have done something during the election. but i don't know that. for sure. >> why do you think that? >> i can't explain it unless you were in there. >> reporter: the white house having to quickly respond. dismissing nunberg, again saying there was no collusion with the russians. >> as we have said many times before, there was no collusion with the trump campaign. anything further on what his action are, he hasn't worked at the white house. soy certainly can't speak to him or the lack of knowledge he clir laz. >> reporter: nunberg offered no evidence to back up his claims. he says mueller has subpoenaed any communications, text, messages, and otherwise. any communications he may have had. >> they sent me a subpoena where
7:09 am
they asked me after november 1, 2015, did acommunicate with carter page, corey lewandowski? i mean, i despid corey. why would i communicate with him. >> reporter: nunberg said last night mueller had offered immunity but he was frustrated with the special counsel. all day, he said he would refuse to turn over documents and would not testify. at one point saying, arrest me. but by last night, he was suggesting he would end up cooperating. at this point, who knows what's going to happen? >> who knows? thank you, pierre. let's talk about it with dan abrams. he has to cooperate. if he doesn't, he's going to jail. >> that's right. it would be civil contempt. meaning the the idea would be, you've got the key to get out of jail. as soon as you decide to cooperate, as soon as you decide to do what you're legally required to do, you can get out. it's not intended to be a punishment. it's intended to get someone to do it. they would have to go to court. a court would order it.
7:10 am
that's where he would end up. i don't think he'll go to that length. >> nunberg may not be the most reliable nabable narrator. the president has said for months, no collusion. it is clear from the questions mueller is investigating that. >> that's right. you can ignore everything he's saying about the analysis. you can't ignore what he's saying he's being asked to turn over. that tells us what is going on in robert mueller's head. if mueller is asking these sorts of questions, it means he is invest giting possible collusion. with the trump campaign. we've known that. this is further evidence of that. it means this investigation is heating up the. >> so much focus on the trump tower meeting in june of 2016. again, nunberg not the most reliable narrater. what would it mean if president trump knew about that meeting ahead of time? >> this is the single most
7:11 am
important meeting that we know about. it was preplanned. it was to get information about hillary clinton. >> on hillary clinton. >> and, so -- and it's with the russians. and so, if he knew about that meeting, that would be a very important point. in the context of this investigation. i think a lot of this investigation starts from the point of that meeting. who knew about it? why did they go? what were they expecting? how was it set up? why was it set up? what information did they have up to that point? >> and whether, because we know from the questions nunberg talks about, people speaking russian in trump tower. questions about president trump's business interests. 2 he was pursuing this moscow tower. >> that's why, again, they're asking questions. about president trump's relationship with russia before 2016 when it comes to financial connections. because you have to be able to look at this as to pieces in a puzzle.
7:12 am
>> clear the scope of this investigation is wide. dan, thank you. >> we stay with politic. this morning marks a crucial day for the midterm elections. voters are going to the polls in texas to vote in the first primaries. the lone star state kicking off the battle for control of congress. this year, more than 50 women are running in texas. mary bruce sat down with some of them. good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning, robin. welcome to primary season. both parties are closely watching tgs texas this morning, to see how the battle for congress may play out come november. democrats are hoping to seize on enthusiasm. republicans hoping the state will stick to its red roots. deep in the heart of texas this morning, the official kickoff. >> i learned then what it takes to fight back. >> that's why i'm running for congress. >> reporter: democrats are hoping to turn this deep red state blue, fueled by a wave of female candidates. democrat judy canales gets
7:13 am
emotional thinking about the moment a friend convinced her to run. >> they said to me, you said you always wanted to run. and i said, you're right. i did. and i thought, wow. i think this is it. so i thought -- i'm going to go for it. i'm going to go for it. and here i am. sorry about this. >> reporter: no, it's okay. more than 50 women are running for congress. in texas alone. across the country, more than 400 female congressional candidates. that's double the number that ran in 2016. >> we feel like it's time for our voices to be heard and for us to have a seat at the table. >> reporter: this is a critical test. a year ago, democrat gina ortiz jones was working for the trump administration. now she's running against his agenda. >> it can't be surprising the the number of women run, the number of women of color running. that the people that have the most to lose. you cannot be surprised that they have stepped up and said, i'm done assuming somebody is
7:14 am
going to do for me that which i can do for myself. >> reporter: democrats are eyeing the texas seat of senator ted cruz. democrat beto o'rourke has been drawing big crowds and big bucks. the morning, they do have reason to be optimistic. early voter numbers show democratic turnout is skyrocketing. the big question, will all of this enthusiasm stick come november? robin? >> thank you, mary. now to the newly discovered video showing life inside the so-called california house of horrors, where police say 12 children were held captive. one of the daughters appears to post videos on youtube under a different name. >> reporter: good morning, michael. on the face of it, the videos seem like typical teenage stuff. until you learn they were kree kated by the 17-year-old daughter who broke out of the house and alerted authorities
