7:06 am
extended reach. this is grasping at straws. >> is it too late? >> it is too late for a closing statement. you had an audience of 70 million people and then in the first debate an audience of 80 million people. this is the only chance you have to talk to the undecided voters. he missed. it. >> i want to get your take here. 45% of republican voters are accept the election loss for the candidate. do you find this surprising? is trump's rhetoric working? >> this is the most troubling aspect of the campaign. it is unprecedented for the nominee to signal they would not respect the results of an election. we have never had that happen before. so because trump supporters are artent, it is bleeding in the

7:11 am
line turn into a botnet and attack the united states is a problem. >> reporter: so far, there is a lot of speculation on who is to blame. a senior u.s. intelligence official now telling nbc news this is a classic case of internet vandalism. it does not appear to be a state sponsored attack. what is clear, a new weapon has been deployed as companies and countries try to prepare for a possibility of cyber war. experts tell usot devices used in attacks like these are located in vietnam. right now, the department of homeland security and fbi are investigating. stephanie. >> thank you, gadi. testimony resumes in new jersey in the bridgegate trial. the question is did governor chris christie know about the george washington bridge closures? he says he didn't, but during testimony on friday, one former aide insists he did.
