Hallie Jackson NOW – Feb. 1 | NBC News NOW

>> YOU WANT TO GUESS HOW MUCH?
$15. >> THAT IS THE REALITY FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY. STUFF IS EXPENSIVE. $4.79 FOR AN APPLE, THAT IS A LOT OF MONEY. I FEEL THAT AND I THINK A LOT OF PEOPLE DO. JAY POWELL WAS LIKE OKAY, WE WILL CONTINUE INTEREST RATE HIKES. HOW WILL THAT HELP? >> Reporter: DID YOU INVOKE SOULJA BOY, BY THE WAY? I HAVE NEVER SEEN THAT. >> WELCOME TO THE SHOW. >> Reporter: LOOK, BROADLY SPEAKING WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE FEDERAL RESERVE MAKING BORROWING MORE EXPENSIVE THIS YEAR. THAT IS TO TRY TO LOWER PRICES. THE CHALLENGE IS THAT WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT FOOD, FOR EXAMPLE, A LOT OF IT HAS TO DO WITH WEATHER PATTERNS. THERE IS NOT A LOT THE FEDERAL RESERVE CAN DO. BUT THEY HOPE TO MAKE, FOR EXAMPLE, MORTGAGES MORE EXPENSIVE. MAYBE THAT MAKES CREDIT CARD RATES REMAIN HIGH, WHICH MEANS LESS SPENDING ON THE PLASTIC. THESE ARE ALL THINGS THAT HAVE, AT LEAST SO FAR, HAD A MEASURABLE IMPACT ON INFLATION. WE WERE PACING PRICE INCREASES AT 9.1% IN THE MIDDLE OF LAST YEAR.

IT FALLS TO 6.5% AS OF THE LAST READING, BUT WE ARE STILL FAR AWAY FROM WHERE THE FED NEEDS TO BE, WHICH IS 2%. THEY WILL LIKELY DO A FEW MORE FROM HERE, BUT THEY HAVE BEEN ABLE TO MAKE THOSE SMALLER BECAUSE THEY EXPECTED THE IMPACT OF THE INTEREST RATE INCREASE THEY HAVE DONE SO FAR WILL TAKE A FEW MONTHS. MAYBE THAT TAKES THEM SOFTLY TO THAT 2% TARGET. >> GOT IT. WHEN WE TALK ABOUT THE ECONOMY, WE THINK ABOUT THINGS THAT AFFECT OUR BUDGET, LIKE GROCERIES. PEOPLE ALSO THINK ABOUT THEIR RENT OR THEIR MORTGAGE. IF YOU WANT TO BUY A HOUSE, WHAT DOES THIS MEAN. YOU TALKED TO A REALTOR WHO IS NOT SUPER CONCERNED? >> Reporter: THE NUMBERS DON'T LOOK GOOD WHEN YOU LOOK AT HOME SALES. 4 MILLION IN THE MONTH OF DECEMBER, THE SLOWEST ANNUAL PACE WE HAVE SEEN IN MANY YEARS.

BUT I SPOKE WITH ONE REALTOR IN ATLANTA, WHICH IS A HOT MARKET,
WHO MENTIONED PEOPLE STILL WANT WHO MENTIONED PEOPLE STILL WANT HOUSES, BUT THERE IS HESITANCY BECAUSE OF HIGH MORTGAGE RATES THAT ARE AROUND 6% RIGHT NOW. TAKE A LISTEN. >> DEMAND HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH INTEREST RATES OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. THEY ARE LOOKING AT THAT. HESITATION IS WHAT HAPPENS, BUT THE DEMAND IS STILL THERE. PEOPLE THAT ARE CAPABLE OF PURCHASING ARE STILL THERE. >> Reporter: HERE IS A MEASURE OF THE HESITATION. AROUND THIS TIME LAST YEAR SHE WAS SEEING BIDS $85,000 OVER ASKING PRICE. NOW ONLY GETTING ONE OR TWO STRONG OFFERS. SO IT SHOWS THAT HESITATION. >> IT SURE DOES. BRIAN CHEUNG, ALWAYS INTERESTED TO TALK TO ON THE MARKET OR SOULJA BOY.

WE WILL COME BACK TO YOU LATER ON IN THE SHOW. THANK YOU. WHAT BRIAN LAID OUT IS REALLY THE BACKDROP FOR THE BIG MEETING TODAY BETWEEN PRESIDENT BIDEN AND HOUSE SPEAKER KEVIN McCARTHY TO BASICALLY SAY, LET'S TALK ABOUT THE ECONOMY. SHOW ME YOUR BUDGET AND I WILL SHOW YOU MINE. THEN THE LAST COUPLE OF MINUTES WE GOT SURPRISINGLY GOOD VIBES FROM KEVIN McCARTHY ABOUT THIS. SAYING THERE IS NO AGREEMENT YET ABOUT WHAT THESE TWO WILL DO, BUT BOTH SIDES WILL AT LEAST KEEP TALKING.

WATCH. >> I THOUGHT THIS WAS A GOOD MEETING. WE PROMISED WE WILL CONTINUE THE CONVERSATION. LET'S SEE IF WE CAN GET THERE. I THINK AT THE END OF THE DAY WE CAN FIND COMMON GROUND. >> HAS THIS HAPPENED, HERE IS THE POLITICAL BACKDROP. NOT JUST A DISCUSSION OF HER FINANCES FOR THE COUNTRY AND WHETHER OR NOT WE WILL PAY OUR BILLS, BUT ALSO NEW DETAILS ON THE FBI'S SEARCH OF THE PRESIDENT'S DELAWARE BEACH HOME.

THEY ARE LOOKING FOR MISPLACED CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS. THE SEARCH WAS PREPLANNED, THERE WAS NO WARRANT AND IN THE LAST TWO HOURS WE HEARD FROM THE PRESIDENT'S PERSONAL ATTORNEY, LOOK AT THIS, SAYING IN FACT NO CLASSIFIED MARKINGS, NO DOCUMENTS WITH CLASSIFIED MARKINGS WERE FOUND IN REHOBOTH BEACH. THAT IS JUST ONE OF THE POLITICAL BATTLES AND INVESTIGATIONS THE PRESIDENT IS FACING. INCLUDING INVESTIGATIONS INTO HIS SON, HUNTER, AND BY THE WAY NEW IMPEACHMENT ARTICLES BEING FILED AGAINST HIS HOMELAND SECURITY SECRETARY. LET'S START WITH THE IS CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS ISSUE. THE FBI GOING TO SEARCH THE PRESIDENTS REHOBOTH BEACH HOME IS A NEWSWORTHY EVENT. THAT IS TRUE. HERE IS SOMETHING ELSE THAT IS TRUE. IT IS NOT SIMILAR OR THE SAME TO THE FBI GOING AND EXECUTING A SEARCH AT MAR-A-LAGO. EXPLAIN THE KEY DISTINCTIONS, BECAUSE THERE ARE SOME. AT LEAST BASED ON WHAT WE KNOW SO FAR. >> Reporter: THIS WAS AN IMPORTANT DEVELOPMENT, TO BE SURE, BUT NOT A SURPRISE. ONE REASON WE KNOW IT WAS NOT A SURPRISE, WE HAD OUR CAMERAS THERE AND READY BECAUSE WE HAD BEEN EXPECTING THE FBI TO SEARCH THE PRESIDENTS BEACH HOUSE. HE HAS HIS HOME IN DELAWARE AND YESTERDAY WE LEARNED HE HAS HIS OFFICE HERE IN WASHINGTON, D.C.

ONE DISTINCTION, THIS IS BEING DONE, AS THE PRESIDENTS ATTORNEY PUT IT, WITH THE FULL COOPERATION OF THE PRESIDENT AND HIS AIDES AND HIS LAWYERS. SO THAT IS AN IMPORTANT FACTOR, BUT I THINK IT IS IMPORTANT TO REFER TO THE KEY LINE IN THAT STATEMENT. WHEN THEY SAY THAT NO DOCUMENTS WITH CLASSIFIED MARKINGS ARE FOUND, THAT IS VERY DIFFERENT FROM SAYING THAT NO CLASSIFIED MATERIAL WAS FOUND. IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO CALL BACK THE REPORTING FROM OUR COLLEAGUE, CAROL LEE, WHICH WE KNOW WITH THE SEARCH OF HIS WILMINGTON HOME, THERE WERE MULTIPLE AND THE EXACT NUMBER IS SOMETHING WE ARE TRYING TO PIN DOWN, BUT LOTS OF NOTEBOOKS THAT HAVE THE PRESIDENTS WRITING, HANDWRITTEN NOTES FROM HIS TIME AS VICE PRESIDENT. THERE COULD BE CLASSIFIED INFORMATION IN THOSE NOTES. JUST BECAUSE IT DOES NOT HAVE CLASSIFIED MARKINGS DOES NOT MEAN IT IS NOT CLASSIFIED INFORMATION.

THIS IS WHY THE CONTINUED SEARCHES OF HIS HOME IS IMPORTANT. ONCE THE SPECIAL COUNSEL IS ON THE JOB FULLY AND HAS THEIR TEETH IN THE INVESTIGATION, IT WILL SOMETIMES LEAD THEM IN UNPREDICTABLE DIRECTIONS. >> THAT IS ONE THING THE WHITE HOUSE AND PRESIDENT ARE DEALING WITH EVEN AS WE GET NEW DETAILS FROM MULTIPLE SOURCES THAT APPARENTLY THE GENERAL COUNSEL FOR THE NATIONAL ARCHIVES TESTIFIED TO THE OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE THAT THEY WERE TOLD NOT TO SEND OUT A PRESS RELEASE ABOUT THIS. THAT IS ONE THING AND THEN THERE IS THE OTHER PIECE OF THIS DEVELOPING ON CAPITOL HILL IN THE LAST 24 HOURS OR SO AND
THAT IS REPUBLICANS HITTING THE THAT IS REPUBLICANS HITTING THE GAS, STARTING OFF WHAT WE HAVE LONG ANTICIPATED BEING INVESTIGATIONS INTO THE PRESIDENT, THE WHITE HOUSE, AND HIS SON AND TRYING TO IMPEACH HIS HOMELAND SECURITY SECRETARY. YOU HAVE REPORTING ON HOW THE WHITE HOUSE IS TRYING TO PLAY DEFENSE. >> Reporter: IT IS INTERESTING. THE WHITE HOUSE KEEPS INSISTING THEY WILL COOPERATE WITH THESE INVESTIGATIONS FROM CAPITOL HILL AND THEY BELIEVE THEY ARE IN GOOD FAITH. THAT IS AN IMPORTANT DISTINCTION AND THE DEFINITION OF WHICH WILL BE SUBJECT TO INTERPRETATION FROM ALL SIDES.

ONE ELEMENT IS THE HUNTER BIDEN INVESTIGATION.
THERE IS NO REPORTING ABOUT THERE IS NO REPORTING ABOUT ALLIES OF THE PRESIDENT AND SOME OF WHAT HUNTER BIDEN'S OWN LEGAL TEAM, RECOGNIZING THE NEED TO RAISE MORE MONEY TO PAY FOR LEGAL DEFENSE. NOW I WANT TO MAKE A DISTINCTION BETWEEN THE PRESIDENT SUPPORTING THIS EFFORT ON THE PRESIDENTS ALLIES SUPPORTING IT, BECAUSE THERE MAY NOT BE ALIGNMENT AS IT RELATES TO THE LEGAL STRATEGY AND THE PUBLIC
RELATIONS STRATEGY. RELATIONS STRATEGY. BUT THIS IS POTENTIALLY A $10 MILLION LEGAL DEFENSE THAT MIGHT NEED TO BE MOUNTED AND HE WILL NEED TO RAISE THE MONEY. >> AND QUICKLY WE TALKED ABOUT THIS DISCUSSION OVER THE DEBT CEILING. HERE IS WHY THIS MATTERS. THIS IS BASICALLY THE OPENING- ROUND IN WHAT IS EXPECTED TO BE A MONTH-LONG FIGHT BETWEEN HOUSE REPUBLICANS, WITH THE WHITE HOUSE. AND HERE COMES KEVIN McCARTHY IN THE LAST COUPLE OF MINUTES AND I WAS LIKE OH, HE IS NOT TICKED OFF.

HE IS SAYING THINGS — IT SEEMED LIKE IF THERE WAS NOT CONSENSUS, THERE WAS A PATH TO CONSENSUS. >> Reporter: WE GOT THE RHETORICAL EQUIVALENT OF THE EXCELLENT SOULJA BOY. >> KNOW WE DID NOT. WE SURE DIDN'T. >> Reporter: OKAY, BUT REGARDLESS IT WAS NOTABLE TO HEAR SPEAKER McCARTHY RATHER OPTIMISTIC. HE EVEN SUGGESTED THAT THEY MIGHT AGREE TO A TWO-YEAR BUDGET DEAL. THAT IS SOMETHING WE HAVE NOT SEEN IN QUITE A LONG TIME. THIS MEETING IS ALL ABOUT POSTURING. THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN CLEAR ABOUT CHALLENGING REPUBLICANS AND I THINK SPEAKER McCARTHY WANTS TO SET THE TONE BY SAYING WE CAN GET TO A DEAL. A LONG WAY TO GO. >> MIKE MEMOLI, LIFE FOR US. THANK YOU. >>> WE WANT TO TAKE YOU TO MEMPHIS NOW WITH AN EMOTIONAL SCENE THERE LATE TODAY. WHERE PEOPLE WHO KNEW AND LOVED TYRE NICHOLS JOINED THE PEOPLE CALLING FOR JUSTICE FOR HIM AFTER.

TO REMEMBER HIM AS HE LIVED. IMAGES LIKE THE ONES YOU ARE
ABOUT TO SEE. ABOUT TO SEE. NICHOLS, A SON AND FATHER AND AS HE WAS DESCRIBED TODAY, A BEAUTIFUL SOUL GONE TOO SOON. FAMILY MEMBERS DESCRIBING HOW LOSING HIM FELT LIKE A NIGHTMARE. >> I LOST MY FAITH. I CRIED. I SCREAMED. AT GOD. HOW COULD HE LET THIS HAPPEN? >> TYRE WAS A BEAUTIFUL PERSON AND FOR THIS TO HAPPEN TO HIM, IT WAS UNIMAGINABLE. >> WE CANNOT CONTINUE TO LET THESE PEOPLE BRUTALIZE OUR KIDS. >> YES, THIS IS A MOMENT TO CELEBRATE NICHOLS' LIFE, BUT ALSO A MOMENT TO CALL FOR ACTION. VICE PRESIDENT KAMALA HARRIS IN ATTENDANCE. SHE CALLED ON THE WHITE HOUSE TO DO WHATEVER IT CAN DO TO TRY TO STOP THIS KIND OF THING FROM HAPPENING AGAIN. >> WE DEMAND THAT CONGRESS PASS THE GEORGE FLOYD JUSTICE IN POLICING ACT. IT IS NONNEGOTIABLE.
>> THIS FUNERAL COMING THREE >> THIS FUNERAL COMING THREE WEEKS AFTER NICHOLS' DEATH AND THREE DAYS AFTER FOOTAGE FROM THE ENCOUNTER WAS RELEASED WITH DEMONSTRATIONS COAST TO COAST CALLING FOR ACCOUNTABILITY.
TELL US WHAT IT HAS BEEN LIKE TELL US WHAT IT HAS BEEN LIKE TO BE THERE.

>> Reporter: IT HAS BEEN A REALLY EMOTIONAL DAY FOR MANY HERE, HALLIE. PEOPLE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS MOMENT TOGETHER AND CELEBRATE HIS LIFE, FOR WEEKS NOW. AND IT WAS AN INTERESTING CEREMONY BECAUSE IT WAS A CELEBRATION OF HIS LIFE. YOU GOT TO HEAR SO MANY TENDER MOMENTS. THINGS WE HAD NOT HEARD ABOUT TYRE BEFORE. PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT BABYSITTING HIM. WATCHING LOONEY TUNES ON THE TV AS A KID. DETAILS ABOUT HIS LIFE THAT ARE A REMINDER OF HOW UNIVERSAL THIS IS AND HOW OFTEN AS THESE STORIES GROW AND BECOME NATIONALLY BECOMES ALL ABOUT THE HORRIBLE WAY IN WHICH THE PERSON DIED. ACTUALLY THERE IS SO MUCH ABOUT
THEIR LIFE, THESE REGULAR THEIR LIFE, THESE REGULAR MOMENTS, THAT CAN BECOME SO EASY TO FORGET AND DROWNED OUT BY THE REST OF WHAT IS HAPPENING. SO THE CEREMONY MADE A POINT OF TOUCHING ON WHO HE WAS AS A BELOVED PERSON TO ALL OF THE PEOPLE HERE TODAY. BUT AS HISTORIC BLACK CHURCHES, PARTICULARLY IN PLACES LIKE MEMPHIS DO, THEY ALWAYS GIVE YOU A MESSAGE.

THERE IS ALWAYS A CALL TO ACTION AND IT WAS NO DIFFERENT TODAY. EVERYONE WHO SPOKE SPOKE ABOUT THE NEED FOR TYRE TO NOT DIE IN VAIN AND HOW THE NEXT STEP HAS TO LOOK LIKE LEGISLATIVE ACTION. COMMUNITY ACTION. HOW THEY ARE GOING TO TURN THIS MOMENT INTO A PUSH. TAKE A LISTEN AT WHAT WAS SAID AT THE FUNERAL.

>> THE SAME DEPARTMENT AND KEEP CRIME DOWN ON ONE SIDE OF TOWN WITHOUT BEATING FOLKS TO DEATH, BUT YOU CAN'T DO IT ON THE OTHER SIDE OF TOWN AND EVERY TIME YOU KILL ONE ON VIDEO WE ARE GOING TO SAY THE LEGACY OF TYRE NICHOLS IS THAT WE HAVE EQUAL JUSTICE, SWIFTLY. >> Reporter: AND ONE OF THE MOMENTS WHERE PEOPLE WERE ON THEIR FEET AND CHEERING TODAY WAS WHEN VICE PRESIDENT HARRIS CAME FORWARD AND SPOKE POWERFULLY AND SAID THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION WAS COMMITTED TO DOING EVERYTHING THEY COULD TO GET THE GEORGE FLOYD JUSTICE IN POLICING ACT PASSED. PEOPLE WERE CHEERING AND THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY ARE LOOKING FOR NOW AFTER THIS DEATH. >> THERE WAS ANOTHER MOMENT I THOUGHT WAS NOTEWORTHY WHEN WE HEARD FROM THE FAMILY OF TYRE NICHOLS AND YOU HEARD ONE OF THE FAMILY MEMBERS TALK ABOUT THE LIES AND DECEIT AFTER NICHOLS' DEATH.

THEY DID NOT KNOW BECAUSE THE TRUTH WAS NOT TOLD IN THOSE MOMENTS AFTER THE BEATING AT THE HANDS OF THOSE POLICE OFFICERS UNTIL DAYS LATER. THAT IS PART OF WHAT I THINK HAS RAISED SO MANY QUESTIONS. WHY WAS THAT INITIAL NEWS RELEASE SO CONTRADICTORY TO WHAT THE FOOTAGE LATER SHOWED? WE HAVE BEEN HEARING THAT PERHAPS MORE CHARGES MAY COME. THAT MORE PEOPLE MAY BE CHARGED. WHAT IS THE STATUS OF THE INVESTIGATION ON THAT? >> Reporter: HALLIE, EVERY DAY IT SEEMS WE FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE NEXT STEPS IN ALL THIS. NBC NEWS RECEIVED THE ADMINISTRATIVE FILES, THE RECORDS, ON THESE FIVE OFFICERS AND FOUND FOUR OF THEM HAD EXTENSIVE HISTORIES OF INFRACTIONS WITH THE DEPARTMENT THAT RANGED FROM FAILING TO FILE PAPERWORK PROPERLY TO USE OF FORCE INCIDENTS TO EVEN ONE VERY IRONIC INCIDENT OF ONE OF THE OFFICERS RECKLESSLY DRIVING DURING A CALL ONE NIGHT AND CAUSING A THREE CAR CRASH.

IT IS THE KIND OF STUFF YOU CAN'T MAKE UP BECAUSE WE REMEMBER THIS ENTIRE STORY BEGINS WITH ACCUSATIONS THAT TYRE NICHOLS DID RECKLESS DRIVING. HEARING THAT AN OFFICER INVOLVED ENGAGED IN THAT HIMSELF RAISES QUESTIONS ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT, WHAT PEOPLE KNEW OR DID NOT KNOW AND WHY OFFICERS WERE NOT FACING ACCOUNTABILITY AHEAD OF THIS. THOSE ARE THE QUESTIONS WE ARE HEARING NOW ON THE GROUND. >> THANK YOU AFTER WHAT I KNOW HAS BEEN A LONG AND DIFFICULT DAY. APPRECIATE IT. >>> NBC NEWS IS LEARNED THE FBI IS NOW SPEAKING TO A NAVY VETERAN CONNECTED TO REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMAN GEORGE SANTOS. SANTOS RECENTLY POCKETED $3000 IN A GOFUNDME ACCOUNT MEANT FOR SURGERY FOR HIS DYING SERVICE DOG. THE VETERAN SAYS HE IS GIVING THE FBI EVERYTHING HE HAS. A SPOKESPERSON DECLINED TO COMMENT. SANTOS HAS DECLINED THE ALLEGATIONS. JOINING ME NOW IS ALI VITALI. THAT IS WHAT WE KNOW AT THIS POINT. NOT MUCH MORE BEYOND THAT, BUT WHAT IS INTERESTING HERE IS THAT WE APPEAR TO BE CONFIRMING FBI INVOLVEMENT AT ALL.

IF THIS TURNS OUT TO BE TRUE AND IT IS ACCURATE THAT THE FBI
HAS REACHED OUT TO HIM AT ALL, HAS REACHED OUT TO HIM AT ALL, KIND OF INTERESTING. >> Reporter: IT IS PRETTY INTERESTING AND IT IS ANOTHER LEGAL ENTANGLEMENT. THIS GOES BEYOND LIES ABOUT WHERE HE WENT TO COLLEGE. THIS IS AT THE HEART OF WAS THERE SOMETHING ILLEGAL HERE? WE KNOW THERE WERE QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT WAS GOING ON WITH CAMPAIGN FINANCES. NOW A DIFFERENT SET OF FINANCES THROUGH THE GOFUNDME ACCOUNT, BUT NEVERTHELESS THE FBI IS NOW ANOTHER ENTITY WE CAN PROBABLY ADD TO THE LIST. AGAIN, PEOPLE ARE LOOKING INTO WHETHER HE HAS DONE ANYTHING WRONG IN THIS. OUR PRODUCER STATIONED OUTSIDE THERE ALL DAY DID ASK HIM ABOUT THIS. HE DID NOT ANSWER THOSE QUESTIONS. HE HAS NOT BEEN RESPONSIVE TO MUCH OF ANYTHING TODAY OUTSIDE HIS OFFICE, BUT NEVERTHELESS IT COMES AGAINST THE BACKDROP WHILE ALL OF THE DUST AROUND HIM SETTLES.

EVEN AS WE SAW PULLING OUT OF HIS DISTRICT. A LOT OF PEOPLE THERE. REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS DO NOT WANT HIM SERVING THEM. >>> COMING UP ON THE SHOW, THE GOAT IS GONE FOR GOOD. HOW THE FOOTBALL WORLD IS REACTING TO THIS YEAR'S TOM BRADY RETIREMENT. >>> BUT SOME GOOD NEWS ON THAT MISSING RADIOACTIVE PELLET IN >>> A YEAR TO THE DAY AFTER TO >>> A YEAR TO THE DAY AFTER TO BRADY SAID HE WOULD RETIRE, TO BRADY TODAY SAID HE IS RETIRING THE LEGENDARY NFL QUARTERBAC ANNOUNCING ON SOCIAL MEDIA HE' WALKING AWAY FOR GOOD THIS TIM AND HE WOULDN'T CHANGE A THING >> AND WE WOULD BE LONG WINDED YOU ONLY GET ONE SUPER EMOTIONAL RETIREMENT ESSAY, AND I USED MINE UP LAST YEAR.

THANK YOU, GUYS, FOR ALLOWING ME TO LIVE MY ABSOLUTE DREAM. >> POSTING EVERYTHING FROM CONGRATULATIONS TO SIMPLY THE GO EMOJI AS YOU KNOW, THE GREATES OF ALL TIME. AND A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK HE'S THE GOAT 11 SUPER BOWL WINS HE WAS THE MVP IN FIVE OF THEM ONE VERY NOTABLE SUPER BOWL LOSS TO THE PHILADELPHIA EAGLES, IN CASE YOU FORGOT. AND HE HAS THREE LEAGUE MVPs IN THE PASSING YARDS AND TOUCHDOWNS FOR BOT THE REGULAR SEASON AND THE PLAYOFFS SAM BROCK IS FOLLOWING THIS FROM MIAMI. I'M NOT TOO SMALL OF A PERSON TO KNOW TOM BRADY LOST TO THE EAGLES LET ME THROW THAT OUT THERE. IS THIS FOR REAL HE SAID LAST TIME WAS REAL ALSO, AND THEN HE DIDN'T HE SORT OF UNRETIRED HERE.

SHOULD WE BUY THAT THIS IS I FOR HIM? >> HOLD UP ARE YOU AN EAGLES FAN? IS THAT WHY YOU BROUGHT THAT UP NOW THAT YOU LOST TWICE TO THE NEW YORK GIANTS. IT DEPENDS ON WHAT YOU PERSPECTIVE IS BUT I'M ALSO WONDERING, WHAT ARE WE GOING TO TALK ABOUT NOW THA TOM BRADY IS RETIRING? I'M JUST TRYING TO FIGURE THIS OUT. I'LL SAY THIS, IN TERMS OF WHA THIS MEANS MOVING FORWARD FO TOM BRADY, IS IT FOR REAL? IT'S PRETTY HARD TO ARGUE IT'S NOT. WHAT ARE HIS PATHWAYS? THEY BARELY MADE THE PLAYOFF LAST TIME AND HE'S LOOKING FOR ANOTHER RANK AS THEY GO TO SAN FRANCISCO WITH A YOUNG QUARTERBACK NOW IN BROCK PURDY AND MIAMI WHERE I AM THEY'RE STICKING WITH TUA.

THERE IS NOT A TEAM OUT THERE TO JUST DROP THEM IN AND INSTAN FORMULA. HE'S READY TO GO TO THE SUPE BOWL THAT'S A PART OF IT TOO AND HE'S 45 YEARS OLD AS HE STARTED LAS SEASON AS THE OLDEST PLAYER IN THE NFL. THAT WAS LAST YEAR EVENTUALLY I DON'T CARE HO MAGICAL THE ELIXIR IS TO BECOM ACTIVE AT 45, PLAYING LIKE YOU'RE 25. BUT EVENTUALLY FATHER TIME CATCHES UP WITH YOU. >> THE RAVAGES OF TIME WILL MAKE US ALL GROTESQUE EVENTUALLY. BUT THE POINT IS WE'RE GOING T SEE TOM BRADY AGAIN. HE LITERALLY HAS A MOVIE ABOUT HIM COMING OUT TOMORROW, STARRING VERY FAMOUS PEOPLE. HE'S PROBABLY GOING TO END UP IN THE BROADCAST BOOTH, RIGHT ISN'T HE GOING TO BE A TONY ROMO KIND OF ANNOUNCER? >> YES, YOU CAN SEE HIM BEIN INCREDIBLY SUCCESSFU BROADCASTER WITH A 10-YEAR $37 MILLION CONTRACT ALREADY LINED UP WITH FOX SPORTS SO YES, THAT'S MOST DEFINITELY IN THE CARDS IN TERMS OF THE OTHER VENTURES HALLIE, HE HAS THE HEALTH AN WELLNESS BUSINESS.

YOU TALKED ABOUT THE FIL INDUSTRY 80 FOR BRADY I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW WHO THE TARGET AUDIENCE IS FOR THA MOVIE. BUT HE WILL BE PLENTY BUSY BUT A LOT OF FOLKS ARE REALL GOING TO MISS THE FACT THIS GUY, HE HAS DONE THINGS WE'VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE. HE'S WON THREE SUPER BOWLS IN HIS 20s, TWO IN HIS 30s, TWO IN HIS 40s. A HALL OF FAME CAREER FOR THIS GUY. NO ONE ELSE IN PROFESSIONA SPORTS YOU COULD THINK OF AT THE TOP OF YOUR HEAD THAT HAS RESUME LIKE THAT >> WHEN YOU PUT IT LIKE THAT THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I CAN'T WAIT IF WE'RE GOING TO GET HATE MAIL OR FAN MAIL. >>> SPEAKING OF SPORTS, BRITTNEY GRINER COULD CREATE AN UNPRECEDENTED NEW QUESTION FOR THE LEAGUE ONE THEY HAVEN'T HAD TO ADDRES BEFORE GRINER IS A FREE AGENT SHE SAID SHE'S GOING TO GO BAC TO THE PHOENIX MERCURY SHE COULD SIGN A CONTRAC TODAY.

BUT AFTER SPENDING NEARLY TE MONTHS BEHIND BARS IN RUSSIA AND RETURNING TO THE U.S. IN A DRAMATIC PRISONER SWAP WITH TH U.S. SAYING SHE WAS WRONGFULLY DETAINED GETTING GRINER TO AND FROM ROA GAMES SAY SHE MAY NEED SPECIAL ACCOMMODATIONS LIKE MAYB CHARTERED FLIGHTS, OKAY. WELL THE WNBA DOES NOT LET INDIVIDUAL TEAMS CHARTER FLIGHTS. EVERYBODY IS REQUIRED TO FLY COMMERCIAL ANY CHANGE IN THAT WOULD HAVE TO BE APPROVED BY BOTH THE UNIO AND THE LEAGUE KATHY PARK IS JOINING US NOW KATHY, NUMBER ONE THING HAS GO TO BE, YOU THINK, THE SAFETY O BRITTNEY GRINER HERE THE ISSUE OF CHARTER TRAVEL FO THE WNBA HAS BEEN A PROBLEM FO A WHILE. TALK US THROUGH THE DYNAMICS HERE AND THE WAY THEY NEED T GRAPPLE WITH THESE QUESTIONS >> Reporter: YEAH. SO IT HAS BEEN A PAIN POINT FO THE WNBA IN QUITE SOME TIME. BUT OBVIOUSLY WITH BRITTNE GRINER IN THE PICTURE NOW, THI HAS CHANGED THE SITUATION. SAFETY IS TOP OF MIND. THE WNBA COMMISSIONER AND AS WELL AS LEADERSHIP WITH TH MERCURY IF SHE WILL BE JOINING THE TEAM LATER ON IN THE SUMMER THEY'RE ALREADY TALKING TO SECURITY EXPERTS WHO ENSURE HE SAFETY, BUT HALLIE AS YO MENTIONED, ALL OF THE PLAYER WITH THE WNBA, THEY'RE REQUIRE TO FLY COMMERCIAL ONLY AND IF THEY DO HAVE TO CHARTER THESE FLIGHTS, THEY HAVE TO GE THE APPROVAL FROM THE LEAGUE A WELL AS THE UNION.

IF THEY BREAK THESE PROTOCOLS, THEY COULD BE LOOKING AT A PRETTY HEFTY FINE. BUT BRIANNA STEWART HAS BEEN ACTIVE ON SOCIAL MEDIA WITH ON OF THE VISIBLE HIGH-PROFIL PLAYERS WITH THE FREE CLASS THIS YEAR SHE SAID LOOK, SHE IS WILLING TO OFFER UP HER NIL MONEY TO CHARTER THESE FLIGHTS. AND IT'S GETTING SOM TRACTION FROM CURRENT PLAYER WITH THE WNBA AS WELL AS FORME PLAYERS. WE WILL SEE IF THAT IS SOMETHING THEY MOVE FORWARD WITH >> AND SO LISTEN, THE WNBA IS VERY DIFFERENT SIZE LEAGUE THA LET'S SAY THE NFL, RIGHT VERY DIFFERENT SIZE BUSINESSES WE'RE GOING TO PUT UP TH REVENUE THAT EACH MADE BACK IN 2021 BUT IF YOU LOOK HERE, THE NFL, THE NBA, MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL GETTING A TON OF MONEY, THEY ALL CHARTER FLIGHTS EXCEPT IN A FE CASES WHERE THE TEAM OWNERS HAVE THEIR OWN PRIVATE JETS, RIGHT? THIS FEELS LIKE AND AGAIN TH WNBA DOESN'T MAKE MUCH MONEY BUT FEELS LIKE ANOTHER ISSUE O THINGS ARE JUST NOT THE SAME RIGHT?
IN THIS LEAGUE AND MENTALLY.

IN THIS LEAGUE AND MENTALLY. >> YEAH. WHEN YOU PUT ALL THOSE NUMBERS TOGETHER, HALLIE, YOU'RE COMPARING BILLIONS VERSE MILLIONS IN REVENUE FOR TH WNBA WHEN YOU LOOK AT THESE CHARTER SITUATIONS, THE WNBA COMMISSIONER SAID LOOK, THEY CAN'T MOVE FORWARD WIT CHARTERING FLIGHTS BECAUSE IT' GOING TO COST ROUGHLY $2 MILLION IF THEY CHARTER THES PLAYERS ACROSS ALL 12 TEAMS. HOWEVER, SHE IS OPEN T DISCUSSIONS. SHE SAID LOOK, IF BUSINESSES ARE WILLING TO PAY UP, SHE'S ALL EARS >> KATHY PARK. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THAT WE APPRECIATE IT >>> LET'S GET YOU TO THE FIV THINGS YOU NEED TO KNO TONIGHT.

NUMBER ONE, THE U.K., SEEING THE BIGGEST STRIKE IN MORE THAN DECADE TODAY AS WE ARE TALKING ABOUT HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WHO WALKED OUT OVER PAY AND PENSION. AND THE TEACHERS, THE TRAI CONDUCTORS, AIRPORT STAFFERS FIRST RESPONDERS THIS IS NOT THE END OF IT, MOR STRIKES TO COME. >>> NUMBER TWO, OFFICIALS IN AUSTRALIA. ARE YOU READY FOR THIS THEY SAY THEY FOUND THAT RADIOACTIVE PELLET, YOU SEE IT THERE THAT WENT MISSING IN THE OUTBACK. THE SEARCH AREA WAS 870 MILE LONG, LIKE THE LENGTH OF CALIFORNIA THIS TEAM DRIVING WITH SPECIAL RADIATION DETECTIO DISCOVERED IT OUTSIDE A MINING TOWN HEY MAN, GOOD FOR THEM THEY DID IT.

FORMER SOUTH CAROLINA GOVERNOR AND THE FORMER U.N. AMBASSADOR SAYS SHE WIL ANNOUNCE THE PRESIDENTIAL PUSH LATER THIS MONTH ACCORDING T SOURCES FAMILIAR HAILEY IS SENDING INVITES OU FOR A SPECIAL EVENT ON FEBRUAR 15 THIS HAPPENED TO MAKE HER FORMER PRESIDENT TRUMP'S FIRST OFFICIAL GOP PRIMARY OPPONENT AND OF COURSE IF ANYONE JUMP THE GUN ON HER WITH THAT AND PEOPLE IN NEW YORK CITY AR GOING TO HAVE TO START ASKIN FOR PLASTIC FORKS AND SPOONS WHEN THEY GET STUFF DELIVERED. THAT'S BECAUSE MAYOR ERIC ADAM SIGNED A BILL TODAY THAT WOULD BAN PLASTIC UTENSILS, EXTR NAPKINS, EXTRA CONTAINERS, UNLESS PEOPLE SPECIFICALLY SAY THEY WANT THEM OFFICIALS SAY THIS IS NECESSARY STEP TOWARDS A CLEANER, GREENER CITY. IT GOES INTO EFFECT THIS SUMMER >>> NUMBER FIVE, A GREEN COMET IS FLYING BY EARTH AND HE MIGH BE ABLE TO SEE IT.
