it is tuesday, january 17. i'm alex witt alongside louis burgdorf. less than 80 hours until donald trump officially becomes president of the united states. and despite the president-elect's larger-than-life personality, the inauguration activities will be scaled back compared to recent years. there will be three days of festivities compared to five for barack obama in 2009. just three for the inaugural balls, 14 for clinton in 1993, and the inaugural parade lasting only 90 minutes, the shortest on record. still trump associates say they have raised $90 million in private money compared to $53 million for obama's first inaugural, ten official balls. the donors to trump will soon become public as a federal law passed under george w. bush requires presidents to reveal
the names of contributors within 90 days of taking office. though his term begins officially at noon on friday, trump said that the work will begin in earnest next week saying he will sign orders beginning, quote, day one, which i will consider to be monday as opposed to friday or saturday. right? i mean, my day one is gonna be monday because i don't want to be mixing it up with lots of celebration. after a heating exchange between congressman john lewis and the president-elect, people paid tribute to dr. king. some by volunteering their time to improve their communities and others by attending church services like the ones at historic ebenezer baptist church in atlanta where dr. king once administered. his pulpit became a political rallying point yesterday once more. >> at the end of the day, donald trumps come and go, but justice will still be here.
we got to have the courage to cross the lines, to meet people with different ideological barriers. we can't keep not talking to each other. >> mr. trump said, atlanta has done a great job, an amazing job, and we are just happy to be here. that was mr. trump's statement ten years ago as he stood preparing to open two towers in john lewis' fifth congressional district. that was ten years ago. i don't know what changed. the city of atlanta has the third largest concentration of the fortune 500 businesses. i think the city of atlanta has given to the united states of america and made america great. what was your problem with the state of atlanta? >> congressman john lewis spoke at a tribute to dr. king where
he did address the controversy head on when introduced by marco rubio. >> i want to talk directly to the young men that are here as well. i want you to imagine being the year you are now, maybe a year older, and believing in something so passionately you're willing to have your head cracked open, you're willing to go to jail 35 times. you're willing to have police dogs sent at you. but i hope the young men will understand that you are sitting in the presence of a true american hero with congressman lewis, one of the most extraordinary figures in america. and so when we think about courage, the 21st century courage is not being unafraid of having a negative story written about you or have people say nasty things about you, courage is the willingness to stand up for your principles no matter what the consequences may be. >> you must never, ever hate.
love is a better way. the way of peace is a better way. never give up! never give in. stand up, speak up. when you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, we have a moral obligation to do something, to say something and t be quiet. >> and back at trump tower, shows of reconciliation. the president-elect was told by andrew young that john lewis is a saint. he's disillusioned right now but he'll come back. he met with the eldest son of the icon. and the president-elect is working with him to make it easier for people to vote. >> did he allay your concerns that he'll be a president for all people, black and white? >> well, certainly he said that,
but he's going to represent americans. he said that over and over again. and i think we'll continue to evaluate that. i think the nation supports -- i believe that is his intent, but i think also we have to consistently engage with the pressure, public pressure. it doesn't happen automatically. my father and his team understood that, did that. and i think that americans are prepared to do that. >> isn't there something that just cuts to your core when you hear the president-elect refer to john lewis as all talk and no action? nothing can be further from the truth, isn't that right? john lewis is not all talk and no action. >> no, absolutely i would say that john lewis has demonstrated that he's action. as i said, things get said on both sides in the heat of emotion. and at some point this nation, we've got to move forward. people are literally probably dying. we need to be talking about -- how do we feed people, how do we clothe people, how do we create
the best education system? that's what we need to be focused on. the trump system picks up on capitol hill with the senate hearing for congressman ryan zinke of montana starting at 10:00 a.m. and potential education secretary betsy devos starting this evening at 5:00 p.m. zinke is a former navy s.e.a.l. and described him as a teddy roosevelt republican who will represent sky country in november. and betsy devos looks to be more contentious with teachers union mobilizing to stop the charter school advocate from becoming the top education official. devos will face questions from elizabeth warren about her experience at public education, but devos has help from senator lamar alexander who says she's swiftly be confirmed by the full senate. and she'll be introduced by joe lieberman. devos' hearing was set for last
week and was delayed by pending closures. and the billionaire admitted to a $125,000 donation to a group fighting the occlusion of collective bargaining rights in the state of michigan. she acknowledged the mistake, louis. and the search for mh370 has been called off. malaysia, australia and china said the crews have finished sweeping the 20,000 kilometers search zone. the flight left kuala lumpur to malaysia in 2013 when the plane went down. the request to find the missing airliner has given few results despite several pieces of debris of the plane washing ashore in africa. the statement from the search organization was, the decision to suspend the underwater search has not been taken lightly nor without sadness.
we again take this opportunity to honor the memory of those who have lost their lives and acknowledge the enormous loss felt by their loved ones. >> that's tough. the main suspect behind the new year's eve nightclub attack in istanbul has been arrested. turkish police released this photo of the suspect after he was apprehended after a police operation in istanbul. istanbul's governor identified him as an uzbekistan national who trained in afghanistan. the previously released selfie video shows the suspect in istanbul days before the shooting. he had been on the run since the attack that killed at least 39 people and left 69 more wounded. at least 16 other people have been arrested in connection with the shooting. isis has claimed responsibility although it's unclear if the attack was directed or inspired by the terror group. a local official said the suspect confessed to carrying out the massive attack after they found his fingerprints to match those of the shooter.
and officials say noor salman was charged in florida yesterday for aiding and abetting a terrorist organization in the june 2016 attack. this video obtained exclusively by nbc affiliate kntv shows federal agents descending on the home of salman where she's been living since shortly after the attack. her attorney said yesterday that salman had no advance knowledge of what her husband was planning and shouldn't have been charged. and that she was abused by her husband. the attorney general loretta lynch said that these new charges show federal investigators commitment to this case. >> this is a matter that we continue to take very seriously. it was always our goal and we said from the beginning, we were going to look at every aspect of this case, of every aspect of the shooter's life, to determine not just why did he take these actions, but who else knew about them. was anyone else involved?
is there any other accountability that needs to be had here in this case? well, former nasa astro gna eugene cernan, the last human to walk on the moon, dies at the age of 82 after health issues. he went twice to the moon. and he holds the title to be the second american to walk in space and the last human to leave his footprint on the lunar surface. the final time nasa sent people to the moon was the apollo 17 mission that took off in december of 1972. upon landing, cernan said, we would like to dedicate this to all those who made it possible. >> one of the things we did in that very early phase was deploy the flag, put the american flag in the surface. i have always said, we didn't do
it to say, this piece of moon belongs to the united states, we did it to say thank you to all those people out there who made it possible for us to be there. >> in all, eugene cernan logged 560 hours in space, and 73 of them were right on the moon's surface. pretty cool. you may be a white sox fan, but yesterday president obama welcomed the world series champion team to the white house. the cubs won their first title since 1908 by defeating the cleveland indians. they provided president obama with several items including a 44 jersey and a lifetime pass to wrigley field. while it was mostly the time for celebration, the president did let politics seen in when talking about the president thoe epstein. >> theo job is to quench
droughts, 108 in chicago, he takes teams and delivers them to the promised land. i have talked to him about being dnc chair. but he has decided wisely to stick to baseball. >> last time the franchise visited the white house was way back in the administration of grover cleveland in 1988 when the team was called the chicago white sox. freezing rain is coating much of iowa in ice creating hazardous conditions for drivers out there. nbc meteorologist bill karins has a check on the forecast across the country for you coming up next.

of concern. not a huge storm, but the mountainous areas will pick up four to six inches of snow. the good news is, alex, for a lot of the cities, an easy commute with rain. the ski resorts will get snow, so they are happy about this, too. >> a win-win for everybody. thank you, bill, for that. still ahead, tennis superstar serena williams is chasing a new record. plus, bill belichick responds to the harsh words for the patriots ahead of the afc championship game. louis has sports, next. i can stay. i'm good. i won't be late hey mom. yeah. no kissing on the first date, alright? life doesn't always stick to a plan, but with our investment expertise we'll help you handle what's next. financial guidance while you're mastering life. from chase. so you can.

and donald trump's picks will go before the senate hearing today include iing ryan zinke and betsy devos. and monica crowley says she will not be taking a position after plagiarism charges. she says she's bowing out to, quote, pursue other opportunities. and the fbi has made an arrest in connection to the deadly mass shooting at the pulse nightclub in orlando last year. the wife of the gunman omar mateen is set to appear in court today accused of aiding and abetting her husband in the massacre. nbc news justice correspondent pete williams has more. >> reporter: seven months after 49 people were killed in a mass
shooting at orlando's pulse nightclub carried out by 29-year-old omar mateen, the fbi arrested his widow, noor salman. she was taken into custody at this house in northern california since she's been living since shortly after the attack. >> we said from the beginning we were going to look at every aspect of this case, every aspect of the shooter's life, to determine not just why he took these actions, but who else knew about them, was anyone else involved? >> reporter: federal officials say she's charged with obstruction of justice and aiding and abetting in the attack. according to law enforcement officials, the charges say she knew her husband was preparing to carry out some kind of attack but failed to give any warning. the investigators said she told the fbi after the shooting that she drove him to the pulse nightclub at least once because he wanted to check it out. they say she had first claimed she tried to talk him out of doing anything violent. but in a long interview with "the new york times" in november, she denied knowing
what he was up to. and tonight her lawyer said she had no advanced knowledge and prosecuting her dishonors the shooting victims because it punishes an innocent victim. but orlando's police chief john mena says, quote, there's some relief in knowing that someone will be held accountable for that horrific crime. >> our thanks to nbc's pete william for that report. well, the man suspected of killing 39 people in an istanbul nightclub on new year's day has been apprehended. this suspect is an uzbekistan national who trained in afghanistan. let's get right to nbc news' tehran bureau chief, ali arouzi. i'm sorry -- ali is just getting there. ali, can you hear me now? >> okay. >> yep. all right, go right ahead and give us the very latest on the
arrest of the uzbekistan national in this situation. >> well, alex, the turkish police have arrested the main suspect, 39 people at a nightclub on new year's eve in istanbul. a culmination of a massive police presentation on new year's eve with a raid that finally caught the alleged attacker. named by turkish officials as an uzbekistan national. he was found with a cut face, wearing a bloody t-shirt and being held by his throat. in a press conference, istanbul's governor revealed details about the alleged act tacker. born in 1983 in uzbekistan, he received training in afghanistan. he was reportedly seized overnight with a man and three women hidden in an apartment block in the outskirts of istanbul. apparently with his 4-year-old son. now, this arrest is going to come as a massive relief for
turkish authorities who have been hunting this man since new year's eve. but the bigger challenge for the turks is to secure their borders, to step up their intelligence, to avoid the spate of attacks that has engulfed turkey over the last few years. back to you, alex. >> ali arouzi, thank you so much, from london. the troops are increasing support in syria as forces continue to advance on the city of raqqah. the terror group's de facto capital there in syria. the air drops of supplies range from small arms ammunition to vehicles. there are about 45,000 fighters battling isis in syria backed by u.s.-led air strikes and advisers. 16 coalition air strikes were conducted over the weekend. reports indicate that kurdish forces have liberated 230 villages from isis control since euphrates anger began in raqqah. isis launched the biggest attack
crimea, ukraine and the build-up of russian forces. allegations were made about leaking or about dishonesty. that's where i think the lines are crossed. 117 cia officers who are forever memorialized on our wall of honor that their loved ones who gave their lives were akin to nazis. telling the cia officers who are serving in harm's way right now and their families who are worried about them that they are akin to nazi, germany. i found that repugnant and will forever stand up for the patriotism of my officers who have done much over the years to sacrifice for their fellow citizens. many democratic lawmakers are taking the feud between the president-elect and john lewis to say they will sit out the inauguration. more than 30 democratic lawmakers will skip trump's swearing in. some like john yarmuth of
kentucky who is not happy with the way he's conducting himself. and some republicans are pushing back. >> i agree with john lewis that the legitimacy is in question. since november 8th, there are no signs that trump is rising to the mantle of the office of president. on the contrary, there's been no efforts of reconciliation. the attacks on representative lewis is a prime example. >> do you agree with congressman lewis that it is -- that this election was illegitimate? >> i believe it was. i think the facts will have to come out. jim comey is probably investigating this. if he's not, he's negligent. >> i say john lewis is pouting. he lost, it's like a spoiled child, we have seen it with others, they can't get over the
fact that they lost. what do little kids do? they run around and throw a tantrum. >> tomorrow will be jam-packed with confirmation hearings with wilbur ross, environmental protection agency scott pruitt, governor nicki hailey for united nations ambassador, and tom price set to testify as health and human services nomination. however, john price is drawing scrutiny as new insider trading allegations are being levelled. cnn reports that last march price bought between $1,000 and $1,500 in shares of zimmer holdings. he would have delayed a regulation that could have ultimately drawn down that company, according to that report. and we are also told that he also purchased shares in an australia firm looking to seek
approval for a new drug. "the wall street journal" previously uncovered that price had traded 300,000 shares in health-related companies since 2012, at the same time he was sponsoring legislation to affect those stocks. on thursday price told ethics officials he's going to divest from the investigations if confirmed. but nancy pelosi is calling for confirmation to be delayed with schumer saying last night, the office of congressional ethics needs to conduct an immediate and thorough investigation into these potential violations of the stock act before representative price's from nation moves forward. and any effort to connect the introduction of dr. price's legislation, co sponsored with democrats, to a campaign contribution is dmon strawbly false. the campaign team also pointed out that the zimmer stock was
purchased by a brokered account and the congressman did not purchase the stock directly. and a familiar face will go before the senate on thursday as former texas governor rick perry testifies on his nomination to become energy secretary. the report yesterday suggested that andrew, the department of number, was having second thoughts of his nomination. he was weary of the public disclosure of his financial information. yesterday andy puzler tweeted, i am looking forward to my nomination. ebenezer baptist church for years has hosted religious and political luminaries. and yesterday senator bernie sanders reflected on the message
of dr. king then and now. >> you know what he was working on? he was working on a poor people's lunch. he was saying that in this country, this is back then in the '60s n this country of incredible wealth, why do we have so many people living in poverty? it is east for politicians to be saying nice words about dr. king today at the same time they are suppressing a vote. >> still ahead, new details on who will not be performing at donald trump's inaugural celebration. plus, a big day for the european union as british prime minister teresa may prepares to outline her brexit plan. we'll get a live report from london. plus, the storm that pummeled the heartland with ice and freezing rain is now on the move. not so much like that lady, though. bill karins has the latest for

president donald trump, she may take comfort knowing that she's still got a friend in washington. >> thank you very much, nancy hungerford. well, the prime minister is being investigated for a private investigation into a bo hemoan island of a spiritual leader. justin trudeau may have violated the nation's ethics code during his trip with other liberal lawmakers to visit aga khan who is a close family friend. they are also looking into the prime minister's use of a private helicopter to get there. this is the first time the ethics commissioner has investigated the actions of a sitting premier. the prime minister is happy to answer any questions the commissioner may have. and the obama administration is working through its final days, and it announced a new agreement with cuba on a number of law enforcement and security issues. the state department signed the memorandum yesterday with the cuban interior ministry in havana at an event closed to press. according to officials, the two countries have agreed to share
