8:00 am
good morning, america. new overnight, election interference, the new report saying russia intervened in the presidential election. did russian hacking help donald trump win? his transition team responding this morning. winter whiteout. two feet in spots so far. driving treacherous. cars sliding off the highway. others buried and abandoned. >> man, it's crazy. >> plus, brutal windchills making things even worse. watches, warnings and advisories you need to hear. chilling confession. the accused church shooter dylann roof's videotaped statement to police played in court laughing as he describes the killings of nine people in a historic charleston church. >> did you shoot them?
8:01 am
>> yes. >> what kind of gun did you use? >> a glock 45. >> why he says he opened fire. from phone to paperweight, samsung's plan for its unreturned galaxy note 7 phones after reports some of them burst into flames. >> they've been recalled. they're dangerous. >> how samsung is flicking the kill switch. hey, good morning. let's get straight to our top story. donald trump overnight in snowy grand rapids, michigan, his first visit on his ongoing thank you tour to one of the so-called blue wall street that delivered his victory in november. >> his transition team finding itself in a war of words with america's intelligence agencies. now, these agencies according to two new published reports have concluded that russia was
8:02 am
deliberately working to sway the election towards trump through its hacking. >> we got team coverage of this story this morning. we're going to start with abc's mary bruce right there at the white house. mary, good morning to you. >> reporter: for months the u.s. government suspected that russia intentionally interfered with the u.s. presidential election. intentionally hacking into e-mails from the dnc and those close to hillary clinton. but this morning intelligence agencies have reportedly concluded that russia intended to do far more than just meddle. this morning, "the washington post" reporting that a secret cia report found russia interfered in the u.s. election to help donald trump win the white house. individuals connected to the russian government reportedly provided wikileaks with hacked e-mails as part of a wider russian operation to boost trump and hurt clinton's chances. >> russia, if you're listening, i hope you're able to find the 30,000 e-mails that are missing.
8:03 am
>> reporter: and "the new york times" reporting intelligence agencies found russia also hacked the rnc but did not release whatever information they gleaned from the republican networks. overnight trump's transition team was swift to respond questioning the credibility of the cia. in a statement saying, these are the same people that said saddam hussein had weapons of mass destruction. >> i mean it could be russia but it could also be china and lots of other people. it could be somebody sitting on their bed that weighs 400 pound, okay. you don't know who broke into the dnc. >> reporter: u.s. intelligence agencies believe the russians are behind that leak. but trump has repeatedly shrugged it off. >> why don't you believe it? >> i don't know if they're behind it. i think it's public relation, frankly. >> reporter: negotiating relations with russia will be a challenge for trump's next secretary of state. rudy giuliani, once a top contender, has taken himself out
8:04 am
of the running. >> i saw that he had so many good candidates available, there was no reason to complicate his life any longer. >> reporter: in a statement, trump said "giuliani is and continues to be a close personal friend." mitt romney and exxonmobil ceo rex tillerson are still among the contenders for secretary of state, but giuliani is making clear he thinks romney should be off the list. >> my advice would be mitt went just a little too far to -- you can make friends and make up, but i don't -- i would not see him as a candidate for the cabinet. >> reporter: and this morning trump is already tweeting praising giuliani as one of the finest people he knows. now, here at the white house there's no comment this morning on russia's involvement in the election, but president obama's made clear he wants to get to the bottom of this. he's already ordered a full review of the hacking and he wants a report before he leaves office next month. dan and paula.
8:05 am
>> so many questions for that and we want to bring in two of our abc news contributors, colonel stephen ganyard, who is in washington and also with us, political analyst matthew dowd who is in austin, texas. okay, guys, where do we begin but let's begin with the intelligence reports. steve, let's begin with you. what do you make of these reports that russia was specifically trying to help trump? is this conclusion credible? >> paula, i think there's really nothing new in this report that we're seeing. much of this was put out by the dni in okay. what is new apparently the intelligence community has come to some conclusion here that the russians were favoring mr. trump. i don't think there's any doubt that the russians interfered with u.s. democracy but the real question is what did it do and how did it influence the outcome of the election. >> matt, what's your take on trump's response here? he said these are the same people that said saddam hussein had weapons of mass destruction. does he have a point here? >> well, it's an amazing
8:06 am
response from not only an american but american who is president-elect. he is basically attacking the cia in order to defend vladimir putin and russia in this. and keep in mind that russia has been a rival of ours nearly as long as the army/navy game in this, but for a sitting president-elect to attack a u.s. agency to defend russia is quite an amazing situation. >> so, steve, if it's true that the russians deliberately intervened in this, what can the u.s. do about it? >> well, in some ways, paula, the horse is out of the barn. they can use cyberforensics to see if there were particular individuals involved. i think we've seen where the u.s. has indicted chinese hackers by name who have been stealing ip from the united states, so they can do this sort of name and shame and the u.s. also has very sophisticated capabilities in terms of offensive cyberhacking. but that's a big pandora's box that gets opened and so apparently the obama
8:07 am
administration knew about this a few months ago and has yet to do anything about it. the real question is what does the commander in chief think about this now? this is really on his watch. >> it's a huge pandora's box because if you counterattack, there will be responses and a response to the responses and it can spiral out of control. matt, while we have you, let's talk about the news that rudy giuliani is out of the running for secretary of state, as mary bruce mentioned a minute ago. trump said, giuliani is one of the finest people i know, end quote. so who is left in the hunt for this job now? >> well, it reminds me a little bit of a "seinfeld" episode episode with george costanza saying you can't break up with me, i'm breaking up with you. >> i think donald trump broke up with rudy giuliani long before rudy giuliani said take me out of this. we've seen that in reports over the last few weeks and only leaves a few candidates. mitt romney has fallen way down. and i think if you were going to
8:08 am
do mitt romney, you were going to do him weeks ago. it looks like it's settling on probably someone like rex, the chairmaner or former head of exxon. interesting because he has a very close relationship with russia and vladimir putin as well. so another complicating factor in this. >> one last question to touch on, you know, we learned this week that trump is going to stay on as executive producer of "celebrity apprentice" but newt gingrich is now even saying that is a weird decision but trump tweeting this morning saying "i have nothing to do with 'apprentice' except for the fact that i conceived it with mark b. and have a big stake in it. i will devote zero time." >> i think, paula, as we talked and me you and dan talked i don't think the policies will be ultimately problematic but potential conflicts of interest that surround him. he is going to get a monthly check from nbc and "apprentice" while he is president of the united states. that's going to present a series
8:09 am
of issues that he's going to have to deal with in the course of his presidency. >> matthew dowd and colonel steve ganyard, our thanks to both of you. this morning. we are going to move now to the other big story this morning, that's the heavy snow hitting several states from michigan to new york as a big blast of cold air sweeps across much of this country, so let's get it out to reunion who is in new york's central park with the unenviable duty of being outside. this morning. hey, rob, good morning. >> good morning, dan, paula. cool, crisp, 29 degrees, feels like 21 but it's a slap in the face and a large chunk of the country getting a piece of it. look at the alert, watches, warnings, advisories, northern tier, from snow to frost to freezing rain in the pacific northwest and the big story continues to be the cold air diving down to the south, 21 is what it feels like in atlanta, 9 in chicago and we've got even more cold air building up that will be diving down next week.
8:10 am
so, if you think this is cold, wait till next wednesday or thursday, of course, with all this cold air going across the relatively warm waters of the great lakes, that is big-time lake-effect snow for jamestown, new york, which is where we find abc's adrienne bankert this morning. good morning, adrienne. >> reporter: good morning to you, rob. you know exactly what this is like standing out in the snow and we've got to tell you, as you mentioned, heavy snow across the great lakes. it's also been snowing very heavily in jamestown making for treacherous conditions and visibility reduced to half a mile making for a long messy and at times dangerous ride. overnight heavy lake-effect snow pounded new york, ohio and michigan. >> there is a lot of snow. it's still snowing. look at this. >> reporter: in chautauqua county, new york, 22 inches of snow already on the ground. up to two feet of snow expected to fall throughout the great lakes region. >> man, it's crazy. >> reporter: in cleveland,
8:11 am
parking lots filled with abandoned cars. >> this is a mess. i'm out here getting my abominable snowmanman. >> reporter: cars sliding off 90 in new york as plows worked to clear the snow. we caught up with big rig driver bob smith. >> i never put one in the ditch yet. so i feel pretty confident in my ability to drive in this but it's the people around me that scare me. >> reporter: in perrysburg, new york, homeowners try to clear out. >> i don't wait for it to get too deep. you won't be able to do anything with it. >> reporter: the snow coming down at a rate of two inches per hour, and it's not over yet. >> i like the snow or i would probably have moved. there's nothing wrong with this. this is heaven. so, how can you beat it? >> reporter: yeah, heaven, at 20 degrees with a windchill in the teens and again this is just the first major snowstorm of the season so we better get ready for more. >> i hate to hair that.
8:12 am
thank you, adrienne and rob. we appreciate. we do want to move now to the breaking news in the fight against isis. america's secretary of state ash carter announced that more american troops are heading over to syria and abc's lama hasan is on that story from our london bureau. lama, good morning to you. >> reporter: and good morning to you, dan. well, this morning, defense secretary ash carter announcing that 200 more additional u.s. fors will be heading to syria. the troops will include trainers, advisers and bomb disposal units to help the coalition of forces fighting isis and recapture its stronghold of raqqah. the troops will join the other 300 special forces already on the ground in syria. the announcement coming as the coalition carries out its largest air strike to date pounding and destroying 136 tanker trucks near the ancient city of palmyra. all belonging to isis. cutting off their supply. meanwhile, the battle for syria's largest city, aleppo, is almost over with syrian government forces backed by russia claiming they control
8:13 am
now more than 90% of the city. residents fleeing the fighting streaming out on foot. more than 8,000 leaving since friday. just days after abc news tracked the return to the city with images showing buildings leveled and streets destroyed. paula. >> yeah, those images tough to see. la lama, thank you. we want to move to the dramatic comments as dylann roof's chilling and disturbing confessioning to killing nine people inside a church is played for the jury. at times he was laughing during his confession and abc's steve osunsami has more. >> reporter: for the first time we hear this accused racist and mass murderer try and explain himself this morning. >> i was sitting there and i was like just thinking about whether i should do it for the. >> reporter: in this disturbing video confession recorded by agents from the fbi 22-year-old dylann roof acts as if he's talking about a night out on the town. >> did you shoot them? >> yes. >> what kind of gun did you use? >> a glock 45.
8:14 am
>> reporter: in surveillance videos played in court from outside this historic black church in june of 2015, we see the faces of the nine parishioners roof is accused of killing. these are their last moment as live. 87-year-old susie jackson, cynthia hurd and reverend pinckney, he left behind these two little girls. >> why did you have to do it? >> well, i had to do it because somebody had to do something because black people are killing white people every day. >> reporter: he says he bought the gun seen here after his 21st birthday. >> how many times did you reload? >> all the times. when i shot a magazine it's like i went pop, pop, pop, pop. you see what i'm saying. >> reporter: at times he laugh telling the story. he calls himself a white nationalist and says that the trayvon martin case in florida woke him up.
8:15 am
for "good morning america," steve osunsami, abc news, atlanta. >> steve, thank you. just horrifying to listen to and to watch, especially to see those victims in their final moments. we have to switch gears yet again now. we're going to talk about the radical new step taken by samsung as part of their massive recall of those galaxy note 7 phones. >> now, samsung has already recalled the phones after reports that some caught fire. some, however, holding on to those phones, so samsung is planning a software update that will make the remaining phones note 7s inoperable. gloria rivera has details for thus morning. hi, gloria. >> reporter: hi, paula. it's been a long and costly road for samsung and it's not over yet. the tech giant appearing to throw a hail mary rolling out an update to make sure every last phone that could pose a threat is disabled. after months of phones on fire, samsung is rolling out a virtual kill switch. that will shut down the last
8:16 am
remaining note 7s sold in the u.s. the over the air update already agreed to by three of the country's biggest wireless providers will prevent the note 7 from charging at all and will eliminate their ability to work as mobile devices. >> this is samsung's last-ditch effort to get these phones out of people's hand. >> reporter: samsung hoping this extreme step will be the last one. shortly after the company's newest flagship device launched in late summer, reports emerged of devices smoking, cracking, even bursting ghoo flames reportedly setting off fires in customers' pockets, homes and cars. >> i saw a small red burst and then it started to smoke, sizzle and burn on the nightstand. >> reporter: even after the south korean tech giant started this worldwide effort some of those new devices too were tied to spontaneous fires. 93% of all recalled note 7s sold
8:17 am
in the u.s. have been returned but according to samsung u.s. customers are still hanging on to more than 130,000 of those phones. >> people do need to return these phones. they've been railed. they're dangerous. >> reporter: samsung is still offering replacement devices when note 7s are turned in. but at least one major carrier, verizon, is pushing back refusing the update saying it does not want to let users who do not yet have a replacement without a phone especially in an emergency situation especially, verizon says, during the holiday season. >> samsung trying to take matters in their own hands. thank you for that report this morning. we do have more serious weather to tell you about in other parts of the when the cold air is in place it is a matter of time when the moisture gets into it. that's what we're seeing, the pacific rain and snow is making inroads to the plains. this snow will be traversing the

welcome back to "gma" on a saturday morning. happening right now, donald trump and his team in a war of words with america's intelligence agencies. those agencies according to two new published reports have concluded that russia was deliberately working to sway the election for trump by hacking into e-mails from the dnc and people close to hillary clinton. a mark of respect. flags flying at half-staff at the white house all public buildings and embassies abroad in honor of the late john glenn. the late retired astronaut and former senator died thursday at the age of 95. the vatican unveiling a addition to this year's nativity scene. rubble from the area that was destroyed by a massive and deadly earthquake last october has been placed to the life-size
