THIS MORNING, PRESIDENT BIDEN

IN THE FIRST LADY ARE SET TO

ARRIVE AT THE SITE LATER

ON THE SEARCH AND RESCUE

EFFORTS TROUBLE BREWING

MULTIPLE SOURCES TELL NBC NEWS

THE TRUMP ORGANIZATION AT ITS

CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER ALLEN

WEISSELBERG ARE NOW FORMALLY

INDICTED BY A NEW YORK GRAND

JURY ON TAX CRIMES.

WEISSELBERG JUST MOMENTS AGO,

SURRENDERING TO THE MANHATTAN

DISTRICT ATTORNEYS OFFICE

INSIDE THE CHARGES. AND WHATS

NEXT FOR THE FORMER PRESIDENT.

AND PETITION DASH BRITNEY

SPEARS EMOTIONAL PLEA TO

REMOVE HER FATHER FROM HER

CONSERVATORSHIP DENIED BY A

LOS ANGELES JUDGE HOW THE

CONTROVERSIAL CASE COULD PLAY

OUT FROM HERE.

>> THE BODY, OF COURSE, ALL

EYES ON BRITNEY. AND I THINK A

LOT OF PEOPLE WERE THINKING

THAT SOMETHING MIGHT BE

DIFFERENT AFTER HEARING THAT

INCREDIBLE TESTIMONY. BUT

WERE GOING TO DIG INTO SOME

OF THOSE COURT RECORDS. YEAH.

WERE KEEPING OUR LEGAL

ANALYSTS BUSY THIS ABSOLUTELY.

THIS MORNING WE ARE GOING TO

GET THAT WITH BILL COSBY WHO

IS NOW A FREE MAN AFTER THE

PENNSYLVANIA SUPREME COURT

OVERTURNED HIS AGGRAVATED

INDECENT ASSAULT CONVICTION.

COSBY WAS FOUND GUILTY IN

2018. ONE OF THE FIRST

HIGH-PROFILE CASES OF THE ME

TOO MOVEMENT YESTERDAY AFTER

SPENDING NEARLY 3 YEARS BEHIND

BARS. THE 83 YEAR-OLD COMEDIAN

ACTOR WALKED OUT OF PRISON AND

WENT BACK TO HIS PENNSYLVANIA

HOME. NBC NEWS CORRESPONDENT

RON ALLEN HAS BEEN FOLLOWING

THIS CASE FROM THE VERY START.

HE JOINS US FROM OUTSIDE

COSBYS HOME IN ELKINS PARK,

PENNSYLVANIA. SO COSBY IS BACK

HOME FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 3

YEARS. BUT HOW DO YOU GET

THERE. WHATS BEHIND THIS

RULING ON HIS CONVICTION.

WELL, THROUGH THROUGH IT ALL,

COSBY HAS BEEN WAGING A VERY

AGGRESSIVE FIGHT FOR HIS

FREEDOM CLAIMING THAT HE

WASNT TREATED FAIRLY.

>> DURING THIS ENTIRE PROCESS.

THE SUPREME COURT DIDNT FOCUS

SO MUCH ON THE FACTS OF THE

CASE. THE ALLEGATIONS OF

ANDREA CONSTANDS MADE AGAINST

COSBY. IT FOCUSED ON THE FACT

THAT BACK IN 2000, 4 NOT LONG

AFTER THIS CASE FIRST HAPPENED

THAT CAUSED ME ESSENTIALLY

STRUCK A DEAL WITH THE

PROSECUTOR AT THE TIME TO

TESTIFY IN A CIVIL PROCEEDING

IN EXCHANGE FOR A PROMISE THAT

HE WOULD NOT BE CHARGED

CRIMINALLY THE PROSECUTOR AT

THE TIME. CASTOR DIDNT FEEL

HAD A STRONG ENOUGH CASE SO WE

MADE THIS AGREEMENT IN AN

ATTEMPT AS HE PUT IT, TO TRY

AND GET CONSTANCE A MEASURE OF

JUSTICE. SO COSBY. DID THIS

DEPOSITION THAT LASTED SEVERAL

DAYS RUNS THOUSANDS OF PAGES

AND HE MADE ALL KINDS OF

STATEMENTS THAT WERE ROAD

RELATIVELY INCRIMINATING ABOUT

THE CONSTANT INCIDENT AND ALSO

ABOUT HIS RELATIONSHIPS WITH

OTHER WOMEN WHERE HE TALKED

ABOUT HIS FAME. WE TALKED

ABOUT HOW EVEN USE DRUGS LIKE

WAY LOSE THE 1970S PARTY DRUG

TO TO HELP HIM SEDUCE YOUNG

WOMEN IN HOLLYWOOD AND THE

JUDGE, THE JUDGES ON THE

SUPREME COURT ESSENTIALLY

FOUND THAT THAT THAT THE CASE

NEVER SHOULD HAVE BEEN BROUGHT

AGAINST COSBY BECAUSE HE HAD

BEEN PROMISED THAT HE WOULD

NOT BE PROSECUTED.

>> JOE SO RHYME COSBY SPOKE

WITH THE PENNSYLVANIA RADIO

SHOW ABOUT HIS RELEASE

YESTERDAY. WHAT DID HE HAVE TO

SAY IN HIS OWN WORDS. AGAIN,

HE MAINTAINED THAT HE WAS NOT

TREATED FAIRLY. HE SAYS THAT

THIS IS JUSTICE. HE SPOKE W D

A S HERES SOME OF WHAT HE HAD

TO SAY. TAKE A LISTEN. >> I WENT UP THE STAIRS.

>> I WENT UP THE STAIRS. >> ITS NOT THIS IS FOR SOME

>> ITS NOT THIS IS FOR SOME

HAVE GREEK OF RACE THEY ARE

NOW. I KNOW THERE ARE MANY THE

LIARS OUT THERE. BUT.

>> PEOPLE CANT LAWYERS.

>> ITS IMPORTANT POINT OUT

THAT HE WAS NOT EXONERATED IS

ACCUSERS AND OTHERS ARE SAYING

THAT HE WAS FREED ON A A

TECHNICALITY. HE SAYS ITS

FAIRNESS. ANDREA CONSTANCE,

THE WOMAN WHO MADE THE

ALLEGATIONS THAT LED TO THE

CONVICTION SOME YEARS AGO SAID

THAT SHE WAS DISAPPOINTED IN

WAS VERY WORRIED ABOUT THE

CHILLING EFFECT. THIS COULD

HAVE ON OTHER WOMEN AND OTHER

VICTIMS OF OF OF ASSAULT AND

THEIR WILLINGNESS TO COME

FORWARD. AGAIN, THIS IS ONE OF

THE FIRST BIG CASES. THE ME

TOO ERA AND ITS THE ISSUE. SEE

HOW WIDE THEY SPREAD. BUT A

LOT OF DISAPPOINTMENT, A LOT

OF ANGER AMONGST MORE THAN THE

15 OTHER WOMEN WHO HAD ACCUSED

COSBY OVER THE YEARS OF

ASSAULT OF HERE. COURT IS A

DISGRACE FIGURE IS VERY LITTLE

SUPPORT IN ANY COMMUNITY AND

HES HERE WITH HIS SUPPORTERS.

HE SAID A FEW AND WE HAVE TO

CHECK TO HEAR FROM MORE FROM

HIM. PROBABLY. BUT AGAIN, HE

WAS NOT BUT HE IS A FREE MAN.

AND THE JUSTICES ALSO SAID

THAT THEIR RULING HE CANNOT BE

TRIED ON THESE CHARGES AGAIN.

>> RON, SPEAKING OF THOSE

OTHER ACCUSERS WE ARE HEARING

FROM GLORIA ALL READ THE

HIGH-PROFILE ATTORNEY WHO

REPRESENTS SEVERAL OF COSBYS

OTHER ACCUSERS. WHAT DOES SHE

WANT TO HAPPEN NEXT.

>> WELL, SHE HOPES AND OTHER

ADVOCATES HOPE THAT OTHER

VICTIMS WILL STILL COME

FORWARD AND THAT THIS IS NOT

DISSUADE THEM. ITS A TOUGH

THING TO DO EXTREMELY

DIFFICULT THING TO DO.

OBVIOUSLY MEMBER THIS CASE

TOOK MANY, MANY YEARS TO COME

TO FRUITION. HERES WHAT SOME

OF HIS SOMEWHAT MISS ALL AT

THE SAME.

>> BELIEVE THAT THIS WAS A VERY JUSTICE. AND EVEN THOUGH

VERY JUSTICE. AND EVEN THOUGH

THE COURT OVER TIME IT WAS ON

GROUNDS DID NOT THINK OKAY.

BILL AND IT SHOULD NOT BE

INTERPRETED HOW TO STAY OR

ENGAGED IN THE ACTS WHICH SHE

HAS BEEN SHOES.

>> AGAIN. SHES CALLING IT A

TECHNICALITY COSBY AND HIS

SUPPORTERS ARE CALLING IT AN

ISSUE OF FAIRNESS, WHICH IS

SOMETHING THAT THE JUSTICES

DID IN FACT SAY, BUT AGAIN, HE

WAS NOT EXONERATED. THE IS A

FREE MAN. HOWEVER, AND IN A

VERY UNUSUAL RULING. THE

JUSTICES SAID THAT HE CANNOT

BE TRIED ON THESE CASES AGAIN.

AND ALTHOUGH THERE ARE OTHER

ACCUSERS OUT THERE. ITS

BELIEVED THAT MOST OF THESE

CASES, IF NOT ALL OF THEM HAVE

EXCEEDED THE STATUTE OF

LIMITATIONS. SO IT APPEARS

COSBYS CRIMINAL PROBLEMS ON

THESE MATTERS ARE DONE ALL

RIGHT. RON ALLEN STARTING OFF

OUR COVERAGE THIS MORNING.

RON, THANKS SO MUCH.

>> AND SPEAKING OF COSBYS

ACCUSERS, SEVERAL OF THEM ARE

SPEAKING OUT ABOUT HIS RELEASE

FROM PRISON AND SOME DESCRIBED

IT AS A GUT PUNCH OTHERS SAID

THEY WERE DISGUSTED BY THE

DECISION. NBC NEWS SENIOR

NATIONAL CORRESPONDENT KATE

SNOW HAS MORE ON THEIR

REACTIONS.

>> JOANNE LINDSAY MORE THAN 50

WOMEN OVER THE YEARS HAVE COME

FORWARD WITH ALLEGATIONS

AGAINST BILL COSBY. EVERYTHING

FROM HARASSMENT TO ASSAULT

WHICH HE HAS DENIED. BUT WHEN

HE WAS CONVICTED, THEY SAW IT

AS A VICTORY FOR ALL OF THEM.

SO WEDNESDAYS COURT DECISION

REVERSING THAT CONVICTION WAS

STUNNING.

>> ANDREA CONSTANT REACTING TO

THE DECISION, CALLING IT NOT

ONLY DISAPPOINTING BUT OF

CONCERN IN THAT IT MAY

DISCOURAGE THOSE WHO SEEK

JUSTICE FOR ASSAULT IN THE

CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM. FROM

REPORTING OR PARTICIPATING IN

THE PROSECUTION OF THE

ASSAILANT. HER FELLOW ACCUSERS

DISTRAUGHT JANICE BAKER KINNEY

TEXTED. SHES ANGRY FRUSTRATED

SAD ALL THE EMOTIONS AND SICK

TO MY STOMACH. VICTORIA

VALENTINO SAID SHE DIDNT

BELIEVE IT WHEN SHE FIRST

HEARD.

>> IM OUTRAGED. IM

INFURIATED. HOW ANYBODY COULD ALLOW A LITTLE LEGAL GLITCH TO

ALLOW A LITTLE LEGAL GLITCH TO

RELEASE A SOCIOPATH.

PATHOLOGICAL LYING. PREDATOR

RAPIST WHO HAD NO CONCERN, NO

CEILING.

>> NO REMORSE. COSBY WAS NEVER

CHARGED WITH RAPE AND DENIED

ALL ALLEGATIONS AGAINST HIM.

HEIDI THOMAS WAS ONE OF THE 5

WOMEN WHO TESTIFIED IN SUPPORT

OF CONSTANT ABOUT HER OWN

EXPERIENCE.

>> I AM FURIOUS WITH ALL OF

NEIGHBORS.

>> OVER. >> 5 DECADES OF THE NEIGHBORS.

>> 5 DECADES OF THE NEIGHBORS.

AND TODAY. THE WAY I FEEL. THE

SUPREME COURT OF PENNSYLVANIA

IS AN ENABLER. DO YOU STILL

FEELS INDICATION THAT THE JURY

BELIEVED, YOU KNOW. ITS ITS.

THAT SUCKER PUNCH. IS

BASICALLY SAYING IT DOESNT

MATTER WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU.

IT DOESNT MATTER WHAT

HAPPENED TO OVER 50 WOMEN WHO

HAVE TOLD THEIR STORIES. ITS

AN ABSOLUTE FRONT. ITS A SLAP

IN THE FACE ITS AN INSULT

MANY DO NOT SEE A LEGAL PATH

FOR ANOTHER CASE. BUT SOME SAY

THEYRE NOT GIVING UP.

>> THERES MUCH MORE TO SAY

AND DO IT IN TURTLE SAID IF

THE ME TOO MOVEMENT IS GOING

TO MEAN ANYTHING AT ALL IN THE

FUTURE.

>> WHEN I SAT DOWN WITH ANDREA

CONSTAND IN 2018 EXCLUSIVELY.

SHE TOLD ME THAT SHE DIDNT

FEEL LIKE SHE ALONE TOOK DOWN

BILL COSBY. SHE FELT LIKE SHE

WAS PART OF A BROADER

COLLECTIVE. AND IN THAT

STATEMENT, HER TEAM PUT OUT.

THEY THANKED THE OTHERS WHO

HAD COME FORWARD. THE OTHER

ACCUSERS AND SAID THEY HOPE

THAT VICTIMS WILL STILL FIND

THEIR VOICE. BACK TO YOU.

>> HE SAID AT THE TOP OF THE

SHOW. WERE KEEPING OUR LEGAL

ANALYSTS BUSY THIS MORNING.

LETS BRING IN NBC NEWS LEGAL

ANALYST DANNY CEVALLOS A

DANNY. THIS RULING IS BECAUSE

THAT PREVIOUS PROSECUTOR BRUCE

CASTOR DECIDED NOT TO CHARGE

COSBY AT THE TIME. A SO-CALLED

DUE PROCESS VIOLATION. FIRST,

HERES WHAT COSBYS ATTORNEYS

SAID ABOUT IT. AS FAR AS WE

UNDERSTAND THAT THE HIGH COURT

VACATED, THE CONVICTION.

DISCHARGE HIM. THANKFULLY THEY

SAW THE WAY THAT WE SAW AT

WHICH WE ALWAYS BELIEVED FULL

FULLY THAT HE NEVER SHOULD

HAVE BEEN PROSECUTED BECAUSE

THERE WAS AN AGREEMENT MADE

RELIED ON THAT AGREEMENT AND

YOU CANT HAVE A SYSTEM WHERE

PROSECUTORS.

>> DONT HOLD UP TO THEIR

WORDS.

>> TO DANNY CAN HELP US

UNDERSTAND THIS AND EXPLAIN

HOW THIS WORKS. SURE.

PROSECUTORS DECIDED NOT TO

PROSECUTE SOMEONE.

>> ALL THE TIME. WHAT THEY

DONT NORMALLY DO IS RELEASE A

PUBLIC PRESS STATEMENT SIGNED

BY THE D A. LEADING EVERYONE,

INCLUDING CAUSE ME TO BELIEVE

THAT YOU WILL YOU WILL NEVER

BE PROSECUTED AND RELYING ON

THAT PROMISE SUPPORTING THE

SUPREME COURT COSBY GAVE UP

HIS 5TH AMENDMENT RIGHTS AND

SAT DOWN FOR A CIVIL

DEPOSITION WHICH EXPOSED HIM

TO CRIMINAL AND CIVIL

LIABILITY. IN FACT LEAD TO

CRIMINAL RESPONSIBILITY OR

COSBY. EVEN IF THERE WAS NOT A

CONTRACT BEFORE IT APPLIED

WHATS CALLED PROMISSORY US

TOPPLE THE PRINCIPLE THAT EVEN

WORK CONTRACT FAILS. IF ONE

PARTY MAKES A PROMISE TO

ANOTHER. AND THERE IS

DETRIMENTAL RELIANCE ON THAT

PROMISE. THE PROMISE SHOULD BE

ENFORCED AND THE COURT

CONCLUDED. THE ONLY WAY TO

ENFORCE THIS PROMISE WAS TO

VACATE THE CONVICTION AND TAKE

THAT EXTRA STEP BARRING

PROSECUTION.

>> SO DANNY OF NOTE. HERE IS

THE STATE SUPREME COURT SAID

COSBY CANNOT BE RETRIED ON THE

SAME CHARGES. COULD HE FACE A

SIMILAR CHARGE DOWN THE LINE

OR IS IT TOO LATE.

>> OF COURSE ITS POSSIBLE

WITH SOME NEW VICTIM AND SOME

NEW CASE THAT FALLS WITHIN THE

STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS. BUT US

THAT WOULD REQUIRE SOMEBODY

WITH NEVER COME OUT TO COME

OUT AND SAY I WAS ASSAULTED X

NUMBER OF YEARS AGO, IT WOULD

HAVE TO BE WITHIN, SAY THE 12

YEAR STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS

FOR THIS PARTICULAR CHARGE. OF

COURSE, THERE ARE OTHER

STATUTES FOR OTHER CRIMES AND

PENNSYLVANIA. IT UNLIKELY. BUT

OF COURSE, ITS THEORETICALLY

POSSIBLE.

>> ALL RIGHT. DANNY CEVALLOS,

THANKS SO MUCH, DAN.

APPRECIATE YOUR EXPERTISE ON

THIS.

>> PRESIDENT BIDEN AND THE

FIRST LADY ARE HEADED TO

SURFSIDE FLORIDA LATER THIS

MORNING AND THEYRE MEETING

WITH FIRST RESPONDERS AND

LOCAL OFFICIALS AT THE SITE OF

THE PARTIALLY COLLAPSED, CONDO

BUILDING AND THE MEETING COMES

AS THE BODY OF 2 YOUNG

CHILDREN WERE FOUND PUSHING

THE DEATH TOLL UP TO 18 WITH A

145 PEOPLE STILL UNACCOUNTED

FOR NBC NEWS CORRESPONDENT

ALLISON BARBER IS ON THE

GROUND FOR US NOW ALLISON

DEVASTATING NEWS ABOUT THOSE 2

CHILDREN. THE LATEST WITH THE

SEARCH AND RESCUE EFFORTS. AND

LINDSEY, AS YOU SAID, 18 LIVES

NOW CONFIRMED TO HAVE BEEN

LOST IN THIS COLLAPSE. WE

HAVE.

>> THE NAMES OF 4 NEW

ADDITIONAL VICTIMS AMONG THE

18 LIVES LOST. THERE IS AN

ENTIRE FAMILY. THE GARZA

FAMILY MARKUS AND ALLAY AND

THEIR 2 DAUGHTERS LUCY ANM A

ALL LOST THEIR LIVES IN THE

COLLAPSE. LUCY A WAS JUST 10

YEARS OLD, M A ONLY 4. THEY

LIVED ON THE 8TH FLOOR. 2

DOORS DOWN FROM A COUPLE NAMED

OF COAL ANGUS FELT AND WE

SADOVNIC THEY ARE AMONG THE

140 PLUS PEOPLE STILL

UNACCOUNTED FOR AS OF THIS

MORNING. AS FAR AS WERE AWARE

THE RESCUE EFFORTS. THE SEARCH

CONTINUES. I SPOKE TO A MEMBER

OF THE MIAMI DADE URBAN SEARCH

AND RESCUE TEAM, ALSO KNOWN AS

FLORIDA TASK FORCE ONE

YESTERDAY AND SHE SAID THAT

THIS IS CHALLENGING FOR

RESCUERS NOT ONLY TACTICALLY

LOGISTICALLY AND PHYSICALLY

BUT ALSO EMOTIONALLY BECAUSE

THIS IS THEIR COMMUNITY TOO

WILSON HERE.

>> AND GALS THAT ARE WORKING

ON THAT PILE. THERE ARE TIMES

THAT THEY ARE BREAKING DOWN

THEY THEY BREAK DOWN SOMETIMES

ON THE PILOTS SELF BECAUSE IT

IS HARD. IT IS HARD WHEN

YOURE GOING THROUGH THAT PILE

AND YOU SUDDENLY FIND A TOY

AND YOU SUDDENLY FIND. A

PICTURE OF THE FAMILY HAS ALL

OF THESE. KEEPS REMINDING US

THAT WERE LOOKING FOR PEOPLE.

WERE LOOKING FOR PEOPLES

FAMILY MEMBERS WERE LOOKING

FOR THEIR LOVED ONES.

>> THERES A MEMORIAL NOT FAR

FROM HERE. ITS ACTUALLY JUST

OUTSIDE OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH

THAT ACCORDING TO LOCAL

REPORTS, THE GARNER FAMILY

ATTENDED AND WERE HEAVILY

INVOLVED WITH. THERE ARE

PHOTOS OF PEOPLE WHO ARE AMONG

THE MISSING UNACCOUNTED FOR

NOW, SOME OF THEM AMONG THE

IDENTIFIED VICTIMS. THERE ARE

ALSO STUFFED ANIMALS, TEDDY

BEARS, SOME OF THEM WERE

PLACED THERE BY RESCUERS WHO

ACTUALLY FOUND THEM IN THE

RUBBLE. WEDNESDAY. JUST 10 4

YEARS OLD. ITS ABSOLUTELY

HEARTBREAKING AND OBVIOUSLY

THE SEARCH AND RESCUE

CONTINUES. BUT WE ALSO HEARD

LAST NIGHT THAT ENGINEERS FROM

THE SAME ORGANIZATION THAT

INVESTIGATED.

>> THE AFTERMATH OF THE 9.11

ATTACKS. ALSO GOING TO LOOK

INTO THIS. WHAT CAN YOU TELL

US ABOUT THAT. YEAH, I MEAN,

IN ADDITION TO THE IMMEDIATE

EFFORTS OF TRYING TO SAVE

LIVES AS IF POSSIBLE. AND IF

IF NOT RECOVER.

>> THE VICTIMS THAT ARE STILL

UNDERNEATH THAT RUBBLE THERES

ALSO THE EFFORTS AND THE

DEMAND FOR ACCOUNTABILITY. AT

LEAST 4 LAWSUITS HAVE BEEN

FILED RELATED TO THIS. MOST OF

THEM FILED AGAINST THE CONDO

ASSOCIATION, A GRAND JURY IS

EXPECTED TO LOOK INTO THIS AND

NOW MISSED THE NATIONAL

INSTITUTE OF STANDARDS AND

TECHNOLOGY HAS OFFICIALLY

LAUNCHED A FULL TECHNICAL

INVESTIGATION. VERY SIMILAR TO

WHAT THEY DID AFTER 9.11 TO

TRY UNDERSTAND HOW THIS

BUILDING WAS CONSTRUCTED

MODIFIED AND ALSO MAINTAIN

THEIR THEY SAY THEIR THEIR

INVESTIGATION RUN SECONDARY TO

ANY SORT OF CRIMINAL SOMETHING

ALONG THOSE LINES THAT TYPE OF

CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION. BUT

ITS SOMETHING THAT CAN

POTENTIALLY DOWN THE ROAD LEAD

TO CHANGES IN BUILDING CODE

STANDARDS. LISTEN TO SOME OF

HOW THEY DESCRIBED IT. AT A

PRESS CONFERENCE YESTERDAY

EVENING.

>> THIS WILL BE A FACT FINDING

NOT FULL FINDING TECHNICAL

INVESTIGATION. IT WILL TAKE

TIME. A POSSIBLE COUPLE OF

YEARS. WE WILL NOT STOP UNTIL

DETERMINE THE LIKELY CAUSE OF

THIS WERE GOING IN WITH OPEN

MIND. ANY BUILDING COLLAPSE.

WANT UNDERSTAND HOW THE

BUILDING WITH THE SIGN.

>> I WAS CONSTRUCTED MODIFY

AND MAINTAINS.

>> AND THIS HAS BEEN ON THE

GROUND FOR A COUPLE DAYS NOW.

BUT THEYVE OFFICIALLY

LAUNCHED THIS INVESTIGATION AS

OF YESTERDAY EVENING. THEY SAY

THEY WILL NOT INTERFERE WITH

ANY OF THE ONGOING SEARCH AND

RESCUE EFFORTS ALL RIGHT.

ALLISON BARBER LIVE IN

SURFSIDE, FLORIDA. ALLISON,

THANK YOU FOR YOUR REPORTING.

A MASSIVE FIREWORKS EXPLOSION

IN LOS ANGELES HAS LEFT AT

LEAST 17 PEOPLE INJURED,

INCLUDING 10 LAW ENFORCEMENT

OFFICERS YESTERDAY. EVERYONE

IS EXPECTED TO BE OKAY. LOS

ANGELES POLICE WERE SEIZING

MORE THAN 5,000 POUNDS OF

COMMERCIAL GRADE FIREWORKS IN

SOUTH CENTRAL LA WHEN IT

HAPPENED. THEY TRIED TO

DISPOSE OF JUST 10 POUNDS OF

SMALL IMPROVISED EXPLOSIVES IN

AN ARMORED VEHICLE. BUT THE

FORCE OF THE BLAST DESTROY THE

ENTIRE TRUCK. YOU JUST SAW

THAT RIGHT NOW ON YOUR SCREEN.

THE FORCE OF THAT BLAST. THIS

IS THE AFTERMATH HERE ON YOUR

SCREEN, NOT MUCH OF THAT TRUCK

LEFT THE EXPLOSION OBVIOUSLY

SO BIG IT SHATTERED WINDOWS SO

DAMAGING SEVERAL CARS AND

NEARBY HOMES THERE IN THE

AREA. A 27 YEAR-OLD MAN HAS

BEEN ARRESTED SO FAR. HES

ACCUSED OF IMPORTING THE

FIREWORKS FROM OUT OF STATE BUT PLANS TO RESELL THEM FOR

BUT PLANS TO RESELL THEM FOR

THE JULY 4TH WEEKEND.

>> WERE LEARNING MORE ABOUT

THE DEADLY IMPACT OF THIS PAST

WEEKS EXTREME WEATHER IN THE

NORTHWEST EXCESSIVE HEAT

KILLED MORE THAN 60 PEOPLE IN

A REGION THAT RARELY SEES SUCH

HIGH TEMPERATURE. BILL KARENS

IS JOINING US NOW. SO BILL,

WHAT IS THE WEATHER LOOKING

LIKE NOW AHEAD OF THE 4TH OF

JULY WEEKEND. WE CAN OUT OF

THE WOODS HERE.

>> AS FAR AS THE HEAT WAVE

GOES, ITS STILL HOT IN THE

NORTHWEST, BUT ITS NOT RECORD

BREAKING ITS JUST MAYBE WE

WANT TO CALL UNCOMFORTABLE.

THE NORTHEAST IS OVER WITH

THEIR HE WAITED YESTERDAY BY

THE WAY, NEWARK AIRPORT HIT A

103 DEGREES WAS THE HOTTEST AT

NEWARK AIRPORT HAD EVER BEEN

IN THE MONTH OF JUNE. SO THAT

WAS A RECORD THAT WAS ON THE

EAST COAST SO AS FAR AS WHAT

CONCERNS WE HAVE RIGHT NOW.

35 MILLION PEOPLE ARE UNDER

FLASH FLOOD WATCHES. THATS

PROBABLY THE BIGGEST CONCERN.

WE HAD OVERNIGHT FLASH

FLOODING AROUND INDIANAPOLIS.

THERES SOME VERY HEAVY RAIN

AND SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF OHIO

AND ALL OF THIS WET WEATHER IS

IN A SLIDE TOWARDS THE MID

ATLANTIC. ITS GOING TO MOVE

SLOWLY TO SO AS FAR AS SEVERE

WEATHER GOES YESTERDAY WE HAD

A LOT OF WIND DAMAGE WITH

THOSE THUNDERSTORMS IN THE

NORTHEAST A COUPLE AREAS FROM

ABOUT WASHINGTON, DC BALTIMORE

SOUTHWARDS THE SOUTHERN

PORTION OF THE JERSEY SHORE,

MARYLAND, DELAWARE AND AREAS

FROM NORFOLK, VIRGINIA BEACH

TOWARDS RICHMOND AND

FREDERICKSBURG DAMAGING WIND.

WHAT TO GET ISOLATED. I DONT

THINK THERES GOING TO BE A

TON OF IT OUT THERE TODAY. AND

HOW ABOUT THIS AT 05:00AM THIS

MORNING. THE NATIONAL

HURRICANE CENTER SAID THE UP.

ANOTHER TROPICAL SYSTEM. THIS

IS TROPICAL STORM L. SO THIS

ONE IS OUT IN THE ATLANTIC HAS

ABOUT 2 OR 3 DAYS UNTIL IT

GETS TOWARDS AREAS LIKE THE

WINDWARD ISLANDS NEARLY SAINT

LUCIA. BUT AS WE GO THROUGH

THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND. WE HAVE

TO KEEP AN EYE ON THIS BECAUSE

BY THE TIME WE GET TO MONDAY

NIGHT INTO TUESDAY. THIS

SHOULD BE NEAR FLORIDA AS A

TROPICAL STORM. SO GUYS, YOU

KNOW, THERES NO REST AT ALL

THIS SUMMER. ITS LIKE HEAT

WAVES. FLASH FLOODING.

TROPICAL SYSTEMS. IT LOOKS

LIKE ITS GOING TO ONE OF

THOSE SUMMERS KEEPING YOU BUSY

FOR SURE. BILL. I THANK YOU,

BILL.

>> ANOTHER BIG STORY WERE

FOLLOWING THIS MORNING. NBC

NEWS HAS LEARNED A NEW YORK

GRAND JURY HAS INDICTED THE

TRUMP ORGANIZATION AS WELL AS

ITS LONGTIME CFO ALLEN

WEISSELBERG. 2 SOURCES

FAMILIAR WITH THE MATTER

CONFIRMED THE INDICTMENTS TO

NBC NEWS IN NEW THIS MORNING.

WEISSELBERG HAS SURRENDERED TO

THE OFFICE OF THE MANHATTAN

DISTRICT ATTORNEY THAT

HAPPENED A LITTLE AFTER

06:00AM, THE SPECIFIC CHARGES

WERE NOT IMMEDIATELY CLEAR,

BUT IT IS EXPECTED THE

INDICTMENT WILL BE UNSEALED.

THIS AFTERNOON. ACCORDING TO A

REPRESENTATIVE WITH THE TRUMP

TEAM. WE DO KNOW THAT THESE

ARE STATE CHARGES, NOT FEDERAL

ONES AND THEREFORE POTENTIAL

TAX CRIMES. LETS BRING IN NBC

NEWS CORRESPONDENT HER

INVESTIGATIONS. TOM WINTER HAS

BEEN UP LATE THROUGH THE NIGHT

REPORTING ON ALL THESE TIME,

THESE INDICTMENTS OR 3 YEARS

IN THE MAKING. WHAT DO WE KNOW

ABOUT THE CASE. I THINK THATS

GOING TO BE SPECIFICALLY TIED

TO IN COMPENSATION OFF THE

BOOKS THAT ALLEN WEISSELBERG

AND OTHERS MAY HAVE RECEIVED

AS A RESULT OF THEIR WORK FOR

THE TRUMP ORGANIZATION AND

WHETHER OR NOT THAT WAS

CORRECTLY ACCOUNTED FOR.

>> YOU CAN BE BETTER IF

THEYRE MOVING FORWARD WITH AN

INDICTMENT. THEYRE GOING TO

SAY THAT IT WAS NOT CORRECTLY

ACCOUNTED FOR IMPROPERLY

HANDLED. SO THATS WHAT I

THINK THIS IS GOING TO CENTER

AROUND TODAY AS YOU SUGGESTED,

ALLEN WEISSELBERG. IS IN AT

THE MANHATTAN DISTRICT

ATTORNEYS OFFICE. HE TURNED

HIMSELF IN AROUND 6.20 THIS

MORNING. THE TRUMP

ORGANIZATION AND ALLEN

WEISSELBERG WILL BE IN COURT

SOMETIME AROUND 02:00PM. WERE

TOLD ACCORDING TO A PERSON

FAMILIAR WITH THE MATTER ON

THE TRUMP SIDE OF LATER TODAY.

AND AT THAT POINT WELL KNOW

THE SPECIFIC CHARGES THAT

THEYRE EXPECTED TO FACE. JOE.

SO TIME THE PROSECUTORS WANT

SOMETHING OUT OF ALLEN

WEISSELBERG IN TERMS OF

COOPERATION. AND IF SO, WHAT

ARE THEY LOOKING FOR HERE. I

THINK THATS EXACTLY WHERE

THEYRE GOING WITH. THIS IS

KIND OF AN OPENING SALVO IN AN

INVESTIGATION THAT AS YOU

SAID, IS OVER 3 YEARS OLD.

ITS BEEN FOR JUST A LITTLE

BIT OVER 4 MONTHS, 4 MONTHS

AND 7 DAYS SINCE THEYVE

GOTTEN DONALD TRUMPS TAX

RETURNS AND REALLY ALLEN

WEISSELBERG AS THE CHIEF

FINANCIAL OFFICER IS GOING TO

BE THE PERSON WHO KNOWS WHY

THE TRUMP ORGANIZATION DID

WHAT IT DID WITH RESPECT TO

ITS FINANCES. AND THATS WHERE

THIS INVESTIGATION CENTERS

AROUND. SO IF YOUVE GOT TO

GET SOMEBODY WHOS GOING TO

EVENTUALLY PERHAPS COOPERATE

TESTIFIED PROVIDE INFORMATION

ALLEN WEISSELBERG IS REALLY

ONE OF THE KEYS TO THAT AND

TOM IMPORTANT NOTE HERE.

FORMER PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS NOT

BEEN INDICTED. BUT DOES HE

FACE PERHAPS ANY LEGAL OR

FINANCIAL TROUBLE DOWN THE

ROAD.

>> WELL, NOT TODAY. BUT I

MEAN, I THINK LONG TERM THATS

GOING TO BE THE ULTIMATE

QUESTION THAT THAT WERE GOING

TO HAVE TO TRY TO FIGURE OUT

JOE, ITS REALLY UP TO THE

MANHATTAN DISTRICT ATTORNEYS

OFFICE. WHAT DOCUMENTS SO THEY

HAVE AND WHAT INFORMATION CAN

THEY GET IF IT DOES IN FACT,

LEAD TO DONALD TRUMP. AND TOM,

WHAT OTHER AVENUES ARE

INVESTIGATORS LOOKING AT IN

TERMS OF ANY OTHER POTENTIAL

CRIMES. YOU KNOW, ONE THING

WERE NOT TALKING ABOUT TODAY,

SOMETHING THAT CY VANCE AND

HIS ATTORNEYS SAID THE

MANHATTAN DISTRICT ATTORNEY

SAID IN THEIR COURT FILINGS,

WHICH IS IDEA OF BANK FRAUD

AND POTENTIAL INSURANCE FRAUD

CRIMES. THEYVE INCLUDED THAT

IN THE PAST IS SOMETHING THAT

THEY ARE LOOKING INTO. THEY

WOULD SAY THAT IF THEY DIDNT

THINK THOSE ARE AVENUES TO

PURSUE. SO WE HAVENT HEARD

ANYTHING ABOUT THAT TODAY.

AGAIN, JUST ANOTHER INDICATION

WHY WE THINK THIS

INVESTIGATION IS GOING TO FAR

BEYOND TODAYS INDICTMENTS AND

WE KNOW YOULL STAY ON A TIME

WHEN OR THANKS SO MUCH FOR

YOUR REPORTING THIS MORNING.

APPRECIATE IT.

>> COMING UP, NEW YORK CITY IS

STILL WITHOUT A DEMOCRATIC

NOMINEE FOR MAYOR MORE THAN A

WEEK AFTER ELECTION DAY. NOW,

THAT ALONE IS NOT SURPRISING.

BUT THE CHAOS SURROUNDING THE

PROCESS IS THE BOARD OF

ELECTIONS BLUNDER AT THE

CENTER OF THE DELAY AND THE

LATEST TALLIES NEXT.

>> A MAJOR BALLOT COUNTING

ERROR IN THE RACE FOR NEW YORK

CITY MAYOR HAS ROCKED AN

ALREADY CHAOTIC PRIMARY

SEASON. THE NEW YORK CITY

BOARD OF ELECTIONS. ACCIDENTLY

COUNTED. 135,000 TEST BALLOTS.

>> ERIC ADAMS WHO STILL LEADS

THE PACK BY A SLIM MARGIN OF

ERROR FILED A LAWSUIT

WEDNESDAY OVER THIS. HES

ASKING FOR A JUDGE TO OVERSEE

THE PROCESS FROM HERE ON OUT.

NBC NEWS HAS ALSO LEARNED THAT

THE NEW YORK CITY BOARD OF

ELECTIONS DID NOT ACCEPT

REPEATED OFFERS OF SUPPORT

FROM THE GROUP BEHIND THE VOTE

COUNTING SOFTWARE, NBC NEWS

NOW CORRESPONDENT BURNS JOINS

US NOW. SO DOSH OF THE BOARD

OF ELECTIONS IS CLASSIFYING

THE VOTE COUNTS AS HUMAN

ERROR. CAN YOU TELL US WHAT

HAPPENED AND HOW THEYRE

EXPLAINING IT.

>> HEY, LINDSAY OF WHAT

HAPPENED IS ACTUALLY FAIRLY

SIMPLE. THE BOARD OF ELECTIONS

AND NEGLECTED TO CLEAR THE

SYSTEM OF THE DUMMY BALLOTS

THAT THEY WERE USING TO TEST

THE SYSTEM. BUT WHAT IS

SURPRISING IS THAT NOBODY

CAUGHT THE 100,000 PLUS

ADDITIONAL BALLOTS BEFORE

RELEASING THOSE PRELIMINARY

RESULTS. AND ACCORDING TO THE

ELECTIONS EXPERTS THAT IVE

BEEN SPEAKING WITH. THEY SAY

IT SEEMS THAT THE BOARD OF

ELECTIONS SIMPLY DIDNT HAVE

THOSE CRITICAL SAFEGUARDS IN

PLACE. THE REDUNDANCY

MECHANISMS FOR DOUBLE CHECKING

THAT ARE SO CRITICAL IN THIS

KIND OF HIGHLY CHARGED

ELECTION AND WHAT WE LEARNED

IN OUR REPORTING YESTERDAY IS

THAT THOSE SAFEGUARDS WERE

OFFERED TO THE BOARD OF

ELECTIONS. I SPOKE WITH THE

PRESIDENT OF THE RANKED CHOICE

VOTING RESOURCE CENTER. THE

GROUP BEHIND THE SOFTWARE THAT

THE CITYS USING IN THIS

ELECTION. THEY SAY THAT THEY

OFFERED HELP MANY TIMES OVER

BOTH IN THE FORMS OF EDUCATION

AND TRAINING BUT ALSO IN THE

FORM OF PARALLEL APPALACHIAN

AND BLIND REVIEW THAT THEY SAY

WOULD HAVE PREVENTED SOMETHING

LIKE THIS. I ASKED THE BOARD

OF ELECTIONS WHY THEY DIDNT

ACCEPT THE HELP AND A

SPOKESPERSON SIMPLY RESPONDED

VIA EMAIL SAYING THAT THIS

WASNT A SOFTWARE ISSUE WAS

DUE TO HUMAN ERROR OF THE

BOARD OF ELECTIONS. ALSO

PUTTING OUT A STATEMENT UP

COLLEGE. I SING FOR SAYING

YESTERDAYS RIGHT CHOICE

VOTING REPORTING ERROR WAS

UNACCEPTABLE. WE APOLOGIZE TO

THE VOTERS AND THE CAMPAIGNS

FOR THE CONFUSION LET US BE

CLEAR, RIGHT CHOICES, NOT

PROBLEM. IT WAS HUMAN ERROR

THAT COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED

LINDSAY. ALL RIGHT. WELL, SHOW

WE MENTION ERIC ADAMS IS

SUING. HOW ARE THE OTHER

CANDIDATES TAKING US.

>> YOU CAN IMAGINE THEYRE

PRETTY FRUSTRATED. MANY NEW

YORKERS ARE WITH THIS. I WANT

YOU TO HEAR WHAT KATHRYN

GARCIA HAD TO SAY TO MY ID

TAKE A LISTEN.

>> RANKED CHOICE VOTING ISNT

THAT COMPLICATED TO DO WANT TO

HAVE ALL THE DATA. I CERTAINLY

IF YOU HAVE INFORMATION IN,

THATS NOT CORRECT AND ITS

GOING TO BE PROBLEMATIC. BUT

IT SOUNDS LIKE IT WAS JUST

HUMAN ERROR AND IT REMINDS ME

OF, YOU KNOW, MY 5TH GRADE

TEACHER, PLEASE DOUBLE. CHECK

YOUR WORK.

>> AND THE ADAMS CAMPAIGN ALSO

PUTTING OUT A STATEMENT ABOUT

THEIR NEXT STEPS SAYING THAT

THEY PETITIONED THE COURT TO

PRESERVE A RIGHT TO THEIR

ELECTION PROCESS. AND TO HAVE

JUDGE OVERSEEING REVIEW THE

BALLOTS OF NECESSARY SAYING

THEYRE INVITING OTHER

CAMPAIGNS TO JOIN THE PETITION

IS WELL, LINDSEY. I MEAN, THE

STATEMENT READ JUST A COUPLE

MINUTES AGO I SENSE A LITTLE

BIT OF DEFENSIVENESS THEIR IN

THEIR RESPONSE TO YOU. I MEAN,

LETS BE REAL. THIS IS THE

BIGGEST RANKED CHOICE VOTING

TEST FOR THE COUNTRY. YET.

>> HOW ARE NEW YORK STATE

LEADERS HANDLING THIS. THATS

RIGHT. AND WHATS INTERESTING

AND IMPORTANT TO NOTE IS THAT

THIS ERROR REALLY HAD NOTHING

TO DO WITH THE RIGHT CHOICE.

AS A SYSTEM. BUT YOU IGNORE

THE FACT THAT THIS IS COMING

WITH THE BACKDROP AND THE

CONTEXT OF THE 2020 RACE AND A

LOT OF AMERICANS WHO STILL

BELIEVE IN THE FALSE CLAIMS OF

VOTER FRAUD FORMER PRESIDENT

TRUMP. A LOT OF FOLKS THAT ARE

STILL VERY SKEPTICAL OF OUR

ELECTION SYSTEM. SO THERE ARE

A LOT.

>> OF EYES ON THIS AND YOU

TO BE WATCHING VERY CLOSELY.

THE NEW YORK STATE SENATE

MAJORITY LEADER ANDREA STEWART

SAYING THAT THE SITUATION IN

NEW YORK IS A NATIONAL

MASSIVE PILEUP IN THE OPENING

SUSPECTED TO HAVE CAUSED THAT.

NOW THE VIDEO OF DAYS AND THEN

SHOWS A WOMAN WHO WAS HOLDING

THESE BIG BY THE ROADSIDE WAS

HOLDING A BIG HOMEMADE

CARDBOARD SIGN WITH GRANNY AND

GRANDAD IN GERMANY. THE

PROBLEM WAS THAT SHE WAS

LOOKING AT THE CAMERAS RATHER,

THE WRITERS AND THE WRITER. SO

WERE COMING FROM THE BACK OF

ONE OF THE CYCLIST RODE

STRAIGHT INTO THE SIGN FELL

THAT CREATED A DOMINO EFFECT

AND A PILEUP OF CYCLISTS WHAT

RESTRICTIONS THAT ARE STILL IN

PLACE ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

WELL, WERE SEEING THAT LOCAL

GOVERNMENTS ARE RECONSIDERING

THEIR INDOOR MASK MANDATES. SO

OF COURSE, BACK IN MAY WE SAW

THAT THE CDC CHANGED THEIR

GUIDELINES SAYING THAT PEOPLE

WHO ARE FULLY VACCINATED NO

LONGER HAVE TO WEAR MASKS

INDOORS. HOWEVER, RECENTLY WE

HEARD FROM THE WORLD HEALTH

ORGANIZATION EARLIER THIS WEEK

SAYING THAT THEY STILL

RECOMMEND THAT EVERYONE

REGARDLESS OF THEIR

VACCINATION STATUS WEAR MASKS

INDOORS BECAUSE OF THE

VARIANT. SO WEVE SEEN THIS

WEEK LOS ANGELES COUNTY IN

CALIFORNIA FOLLOWING SUPER

REVERSING THEIR INDOOR MASK

MANDATE SAYING THAT AS A

PRECAUTIONARY MEASURE, I YOU

KNOW, RECOMMENDING THAT PEOPLE

STILL WEAR THOSE MASKS. WERE

SEEING THAT IN THE STATE OF

MANDATE FOR SCHOOLS FOR THE

UPCOMING SCHOOL YEAR. YET

UNTIL HE GETS MORE INFORMATION

ON THE DOWNSIDE VARIANT FROM

FEDERAL HEALTH OFFICIALS.

HERES DOCTOR FAUCI.

>> THERE ARE CERTAIN POCKETS

OF UNDER-VACCINATED AREAS OF

THE COUNTRY. WELL, WE COULD

SEE A THREAT WITH THIS

VARIANT, WHICH HAS THE

CAPABILITY OF SPREADING.

>> QUITE EFFICIENTLY FROM

PERSON TO PERSON.

>> EXPERTS HAVE REITERATED

THAT THESE MASKS TO PROTECT

PEOPLE WHO HAVE NOT YET BEEN

VACCINATED AS WEVE SEEN IN

RECENT STUDIES SHOW. AS RECENT

AS THIS WEEK, WE SAW A NEW

STUDY FROM MODERNA SHOWING

THAT OUR 3 VACCINES THE J AND

J THE PFIZER AND MODERNA TO

PROTECT AGAINST THE DELTA

VARIANT. NOW, MEANWHILE,

HEALTH OFFICIALS IN CITIES

LIKE CHICAGO AND NEW YORK CITY

HAVE SAID THAT THEY DO NOT

PLAN ON REVISITING THE CHANGE

IN THEIR INDOOR MASK MANDATE

AND THE CDC HAS ALSO NOT

INDICATED THAT THERE WOULD

REVISITING THEIR GUIDANCE

EITHER A FRENZY WHEN HE

DOCTORS ARE NOW SAYING THAT

PEOPLE INFECTED WITH THE DELTA

STRAIN MAY HAVE SYMPTOMS

SIMILAR TO A BAD COLD. WHAT

PEOPLE NEED TO WATCH OUT FOR.

>> YET LINDSAY DOCTORS ARE

SEEING MORE RESPIRATORY

COMPLAINTS SO SYMPTOMS LIKE

CONGESTION RUNNY NOSE,

HEADACHE. HOWEVER, THERE ARE

WARNING THAT JUST BECAUSE

THOSE ARE THE SYMPTOMS THAT

YOU HAVE. YOU SHOULD NOT BE A

BRUSHING OFF. YOU KNOW,

SYMPTOMS, THEYRE URGING THAT

YOU STILL GO AND GET TESTED

LUNG PROBLEMS COULD STILL

DEVELOP LINDSAY.

>> SO FINALLY A GRAND JURY HAS

DECIDED NOT TO CHARGE A

HOUSTON DOCTOR ACCUSED OF

STEALING DOSES FOR THE COVID

VACCINE FOR FRIENDS AND FAMILY

EARLY IN THE ROLLOUT. WEVE

COVERED THIS BEFORE. WHAT WAS

BEHIND THAT DECISION.

TESTIMONY AND ULTIMATELY THE

GRAND JURY CONCLUDED THAT THEY

AGREED WITH THE TEXAS MEDICAL

BOARD AS WELL AS A JUDGE WHO

EARLIER THIS YEAR DISMISSED

THE STATES MEDICAL BOARD SAID

THAT THE DOCTOR APPEARED TO

HAVE ADMINISTERED THOSE 10

DOSES TO PATIENTS THAT WERE

PROPERLY CONSENTED IN THE

ELIGIBLE PATIENT CATEGORY AND

THAT ULTIMATELY THOSE DOSES

WOULD HAVE OTHERWISE BEEN

WASTED. THE BOARD ALSO FOUND

THAT THERE WERE NO PROTOCOLS

AT THE TIME. BACK IN DECEMBER

WHEN THIS HAPPENED FOR THE

DOCTOR TO FOLLOW AND THAT HE

RELIED ON STATE GUIDANCE NOT

TO WASTE THE VACCINE BY GIVING

THEM OUT. NOW DOCTOR AGO CALL

FOLLOWING THE ALLEGATION WAS

FIRED FROM HIS GOVERNMENT JOB.

HIS HAS BEEN LIKE YOU SAID IN

NEWS HEADLINES ACROSS THE

WORLD. I AND HIS ATTORNEY SAYS

THAT THIS DECISION BY THE

GRAND JURY ENDS THE ATTEMPT.

FILINGS. JAMIE SPEARS INSISTS

HE HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH HIS

DAUGHTERS. POOR TREATMENT AND

INTO HER SINCE HER VERY PUBLIC

BREAKDOWN IN 2008. THE POP

SUPERSTAR HAS BEEN UNDER A

COURT SANCTION CONSERVATORSHIP

ATTORNEY FOR MONTGOMERY SAYS

SHES BEEN A TIRELESS ADVOCATE

FOR BRITNEY AND FOR HER

WELL-BEING ALSO NOTING THAT

DECISIONS ABOUT MARRIAGE OR

FAMILY PLANNING ARE NOT

AFFECTED BY CONSERVATORSHIP.

BUT ONE EXPERT SAYS THE RULES

AND DYNAMICS IN A

CONSERVATORSHIP ARE RARELY

STRAIGHTFORWARD. ITS MY

IMPRESSION THAT.

>> BRITNEY HAS BEEN UNDER THIS

CONSERVATORSHIP FOR SO LONG

SHE TRULY FEELS COMPELLED TO

HAPPENED IN JANUARY. THAT WAS

PART OF THEIR OUTAGES IN

CRITICAL SYSTEMS. WHEN

THIS FRENZY THAT THEY WERE

CITED FOR. YEAH. THAT VERY

REASON WE KNOW ROBYN HAS BEEN

IN THE NEWS A LOT THIS YEAR.

HOW IS THE COMPANY RESPONDING

TO THE ORDER AND COULD THIS

IMPACT THE COMPANYS BID.

>> TO GO PUBLIC. THEY SAID

THEY MADE THE NECESSARY

INVESTMENTS TO ADDRESS THESE

TRIPLING ITS SUPPORT STAFF TO

A TOTAL OF 2,700. IN A

STATEMENT THEY SAID THEY

INVESTED HEAVILY IN IMPROVING

>> THE 4TH OF JULY WEEKEND IS

ALMOST UPON US. AND ACCORDING

TO DATA FROM AAA, MORE THAN

40 MILLION AMERICANS ARE

EXPECTED TO HIT THE ROADS OR

SKIES TO CELEBRATE THE

HOLIDAY. HOW A WEEK OF RECORD

BREAKING HEAT AND A NOR-EASTER

AFFECT YOUR TRAVEL PLANS.

LETS GO AHEAD. BRING IN THE

POINTS GUY BRIAN KELLY THAT

HELP US NAVIGATE THIS FRYING,

GOOD MORNING. GOOD TO SEE YOU.

SO OF COURSE, MUCH OF THE U.S.

ARE RECOVERING FROM SCORCHING

TEMPERATURES ACROSS THE

COUNTRY. NOW, LOT OF AREAS

EXPECTING RAIN. THERES ALSO

THE DELTA VARIANT TO KEEP IN

MIND. SO WHATS YOUR ADVICE

THIS WEEKEND.

>> WELL, IF YOURE GOING TO

TRAVEL, JUST BE PREPARED. YOU

KNOW, THE TRAVEL SYSTEM. ITS

ITS ON THE VERGE OF A YOU

KNOW, WEVE SEEN AMERICAN

AIRLINES CANCEL HUNDREDS OF

FLIGHTS BECAUSE OF THEIR PILOT

AND LABOR SHORTAGE. YOU KNOW,

THEIR LABOR SHORTAGES ALL

ACROSS THE TRAVEL INDUSTRY.

SO, YOU KNOW, IF YOURE GOING

TO BE OUT THERE. JUST BE

PREPARED. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND

DOUBLE CHECK YOUR AIRLINE

RESERVATIONS, YOUR HOTEL AND

CAR RENTAL RESERVATIONS. THERE

BEEN A LOT OF CHANGES AND JUST

DOUBLE CHECK THAT EVERYTHING

IS IN LINE. BEFORE YOU LEAVE

YOUR HOUSE.

>> SO WE KNOW THAT LAST YEAR

THE PANDEMIC HAD A HUGE IMPACT

ON THE HOSPITALITY AND

RESTAURANT INDUSTRIES. THEY

OBVIOUSLY LOST A LOT OF MONEY

DURING HOLIDAY WEEKENDS,

ESPECIALLY THOSE PLACES THAT

RELY ON TOURISM. SO WHAT MIGHT

BE THE IMPACT IF THERES BAD

WEATHER THIS TIME AROUND. I

MEAN, MIGHT BE AS BAD AS LAST

YEAR. BUT HOW MUCH OF AN

IMPACT DID THAT HAVE ON SOME

OF THESE BUSINESSES.

>> WELL, THE TRAVEL COMPANIES

ARE BACK TO MAKING MONEY. YOU

KNOW, UNITED AIRLINES JUST

THIS WEEK. ANNOUNCE ARE

PROFITABLE AS WE SAW JUST NOW,

HERTZ IS EXITING BANKRUPTCY

SOME DO LOOK GOOD ON THE

HOWEVER, ALL IT TAKES IS ONE

STORM TO REALLY THROUGH OR OUR

WHOLE AVIATION SYSTEM OUT OF

WHACK. BUT, YOU KNOW, IN

GENERAL, YOU KNOW, THE FUTURE

LOOKS BRIGHT. THE BIG CONCERN

FOR EVERYONE RIGHT NOW. SO

DONT TO BURY IN THE EU IS

OPEN TO AMERICAN CITIZENS IF

YOURE VACCINATED, ITS SUPER

EASY TO TRAVEL TO THE EU.

HOWEVER, IF THIS DELTA VARIANT

WE COULD SEE CLOSURES AGAIN.

SO WERE NOT OUT OF THE WOODS

YET, BUT THINGS DO LOOK GOOD

FOR THE TRAVEL INDUSTRY.

RIGHT. BOOKED AND CANCELED NOW

2 SEPARATE TRIPS BECAUSE I

DONT KNOW. IT JUST WASNT

CLEAR. IM NOT WORRIED. SO I

DECIDED TO GO SOMEWHERE A

LITTLE BIT CLOSER WHERE WE

LIVE. YOUVE BEEN TRAVELING.

WHATS YOUR ADVICE FOR PEOPLE

WHO DONT WANT TO GO REALLY

FAR. WELL, THERES CERTAINLY

SO MANY BEAUTIFUL PLACES TO GO

IN THE U.S. OUR NATIONAL PARK

SYSTEM IS INCREDIBLE. JUST

NOTE THAT EVEN SOME NATIONAL

PARKS YOU NEED TO MAKE

RESERVATIONS IN HAWAII. THERE

ARE SOME PARTS THAT YOU HAVE

TO MAKE RESERVATIONS TO EVEN

HIKE. SO MY MY TIP IS DONT

ASSUME THINGS ARE BACK TO

PREPANDEMIC LEVELS ACTUALLY

HOTELS. YOU MIGHT BE PAYING

THROUGH THE NOSE AND NOT EVEN

GETTING THE PERKS BECAUSE FOR

EXAMPLE, NO HOUSEKEEPING SO

JUST UNDERSTAND WHAT YOURE

PAYING FOR BEFORE. JUST

ASSUMING THAT EVERYTHING IS

BACK TO NORMAL BECAUSE ITS

NOT.

>> ALL RIGHT. SO BRIGHTEST BIG

PICTURE LOOKING AHEAD HERE AT

2021 AND FOLKS ARE WEIGHING

WHAT THEY SHOULD BE DOING,

WHAT THEY SHOULD BE THINKING

ABOUT WHAT IS JUST YOUR

BIGGEST TIP FOR FOLKS. THE

BIGGEST THING YOU HAVE TO

POINT.

>> FOLK STORIES ARE

CONSIDERING WHAT TO DO LATER

THIS YEAR. I SAY, YOU KNOW,

SOME MOST OF THE AIRLINES LUV

FREE CHANGES. BUT IN MAY BE

MADE A SNEAKY LITTLE CHANGE

DID AND TOOK AWAY 4 CHANGES

FROM BASIC ECONOMY TICKETS,

WHICH IS WHAT MOST PEOPLE MY

NUMBER ONE TIP IS USE THOSE

FREQUENT FLYER MILES AND A LOT

OF US HAVE BUILDING UP FROM

CREDIT CARD SPENDING. WERE

NOT TRAVEL LANES. SO IF YOU

WANT TO BOOK SOMETHING. BUT

USING YOUR FREQUENT FLYER

MILES. AND IF YOU WANT TO

CANCEL FOR ANY REASON YOURE

NOT GETTING HERE, LINED OUT OR

GO ACTUALLY GIVE YOU YOUR

MILES AND BACK. SO GIVES YOU

THAT ADDED LEVEL OF

FLEXIBILITY.

>> AND YOU KNOW, USE THE MIGHT

AS WELL BUY REAL QUICK, BEFORE

WE LET YOU GO, ONE THING THAT

ACTUALLY LIKED AS A RESULT

FROM THE PANDEMIC. IS THIS

CHANGE FEE BEING WAVED A LOT

OF PLACES ARE SAYING, YOU KNOW

WHAT, IF YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND,

YOU CAN KEEP YOUR MONEY WITH

US. BUT YOU KNOW, YOU CAN USE

IT FOR SUBSEQUENT TICKET. DO

YOU THINK THATS GOING TO

STICK AROUND.

>> ABSOLUTELY

>> SOME WAYS WERE ALREADY

SEEING TIMES OF BOGUS FEES

BEING ADDED IN CLEANING FEES.

COVID THESE I RECOMMEND EAGLE.

I HEAR YOUR RESERVATIONS AND

PUSH BACK ON THESE BOGUS FEES,

ESPECIALLY IF YOURE AT A

HOTEL AND THEYRE CHARGING,

YOU KNOW, A COVID FEE. BUT

THEN YOU DONT ACTUALLY GET

ANY OF THE PERKS THAT HE PAID

FOR. YOU CAN ACTUALLY DISPUTE.

DOES THESE A LOT OF A HOTEL

APPS. YOU CAN SEND A MESSAGE

TO CUSTOMER SERVICE PAY A $40

RESORT FEE. WHEN I COULDNT

EVEN USE THE POOL. SO YOU GOT

TO THINK OF THAT YOU MY DREAMS

A LITTLE BIT. BUT THEN HE.

YEAH. AND YOU KNOW, THEM AND

THANK YOU FOR THOSE 40 BUCKS

ALL RIGHT. THE KELLY, THANKS

SO MUCH. EVERY SENSE

>> COMING UP AS THE

POST-PANDEMIC HIRING CRISIS

LOOMS, SOME MAY HAVE FOUND A

WORKAROUND THEIR SUMMER

SOLUTION TEENAGERS. EXPLAIN

NEXT.

SUMMER JOB IS A GREAT WAY TO

MAKE A FEW EXTRA BUCKS. WERE

OUT OF SCHOOL. BUT FOR

BUSINESSES WITH THOSE YOUNG

PEOPLE ARE FILLING A CRITICAL

GAP IN THE LABOR MARKET WAS A

SANDWICH ARTIST MYSELF IN MY

DAY AND THEN A MORE THAN A

FROM 16 TO 8.19 HAD JOBS AND

THATS THE HIGHEST LEVEL SINCE

2018 ACCORDING TO THE BUREAU

OF LABOR STATISTICS. NBC NEWS

SENIOR BUSINESS CORRESPONDENT

STEPHANIE RUHLE TAKES A CLOSER

LOOK.

>> HEY THERE, LINDSAY IN JOE

AS THE ECONOMY IS RECOVERING

EMPLOYERS ARE STRUGGLING TO

HIRE ENOUGH WORKERS AND ITS

CREATING THE BIGGEST TEEN

HIRING BOOM IN OVER A DECADE.

>> A TEAM OF CELEBS ON THE

FAMOUS 4TH STREET COOKIE

COMPANY IN PHILADELPHIA.

THATS AS RESTRICTIONS EASE

CUSTOMERS ARE COMING BACK. BUT

WHEN IT COMES TO GETTING

EMPLOYEES BACK. THATS BEEN A

DIFFERENT STORY FOR 8 WERE SO

LOOKING FOR 4 MORE TO FILL

THOSE JOBS. SHES TURNED TO AN

UNLIKELY GROUP TEENAGERS. IF

THERE WERE DIFFERENT SUMMER.

>> WOULD YOU BE TAKING THE

RESUMES IN BRINGING ON 1516,

YEAR OLDS.

>> IF YOU ASKED ME THAT

BEFORE, I WOULD SAY NO,

BECAUSE I KNOW THEY HAVE TO

COME BACK TO SCHOOL TO HOLAHAN

OF THE NEARBY BUSINESS AND

SAYS SHES EXPERIENCING THE

SAME THING RIGHT NOW. WE ARE.

>> CURRENTLY HAVE 3 TEENAGERS

WORKING. AND I WOULD SAY

THATS PROBABLY 3 MORE THAN WE

HAD 15 MONTHS AGO IN MAY. MORE

THAN 33% OF 16 TO 19 YEAR OLDS

HAD A JOB. THE HIGHEST LEVEL

SINCE 2008 PART OF WHATS

CAUSING MORE KING YEARS TO BE

HIGHER. NOW.

>> ITS REALLY THEIR

AVAILABILITY AND WILLINGNESS

TO TAKE MANY JOBS THAT PERHAPS

OTHER ADULT OR NOT FOR HUMAN

BEINGS YOU RIGHT NOW. BUT

HIRING TEENS IS COMPLICATED

THEIR REGULATIONS ABOUT THE

JOBS THEY CAN HAVE ANY HOURS.

THEY CAN WORK AND COME FALL.

MANY WILL QUIT TO RETURN TO

SCHOOL. BUT WITH A RECORD 9.3

MILLION JOB OPENINGS MANY

EMPLOYERS ARE WILLING TO

ACCEPT THAT EVEN IF ITS JUST

A TEMPORARY THING.

>> WE ARE NOW TEENAGERS ARE

FILLING AN IMPORTANT GAP

HELPING THE ECONOMY AND

HELPING TEENS THEMSELVES GROW.

THE BEST PART ABOUT HAVING A

JOB IS.

>> BEING ABLE TO MAKE MONEY ON

YOUR OWN, NOT RELY ON ANYONE

ELSE BUT YOURSELF, YOU KNOW, I

GET MY TO SAVE IT GIVES YOU A

CHANCE TO LET GO OUT INTO THE

REAL WORLD.

>> NOW THIS TEAM HIRING SURGE

MIGHT NOT LAST THE ON SUMMER

AS WERE EXPECTING OLDER

WORKERS TO RETURN ONCE THE

EMPLOYMENT BENEFITS FROM THE

PANDEMIC START TO RUN OUT JOE LINDSEY.
