5:13 am
was the only person that cipollone said that to? that's what the committee wants to know. who else did he say that to and does that group including the president? if it does, that means the president may have been notified from white house counsel that this was a horrible idea. >> danny, the hold up for the committee trying to get cipollone to testify were his claims of executive privilege and attorney/client privilege. what does that tell us about what he would or would not have been able to speak about? >> in reality, these claims of executive privilege probably are not going to fly. perhaps cipollone raised them in order that the committee would force them to testify. number one, president biden has waved executive privilege. number two, what trump was doing on january 6th had nothing to do
5:14 am
with being the president. cipollone was white house counsel. that means counsel for the government. not trump the individual and not trump the candidate. that is a long shot claim as well. already courts have denied this claim of privilege in relation to trump's attempt to block records from the national archives. because cipollone was white house counsel and one counsel has testified for most watchers, that would further weaken the cipollone claim if he makes it of executive privilege as white house counsel. >> danny, we know there will be another hearing on tuesday. what will you watch? >> we're expecting this will focus on the groups. extremist groups who may or may not have been planning in the trump circle. that is where we see the
5:15 am
committee focus. that's what they signalled. we will see what testimony they bring out. either videotape or video of the incidents in question or live testimony. >> we know you will continue to watch it closely. danny cevellos, thank you. basketball star brittney griner will not be at the wnba all-star game in chicago this weekend, but front in center. griner has been jailed in russia since february over a drug charge was named an honorary starter for the game. she pleaded guilty this week and her wife is asking for griner to come home. nbc's meghan fitzgerald has the story. >> reporter: good morning, peter. it is five months that brine griner has been locked up in the russian brings on. cries are growing louder as the wnba star entered a guilty plea with the charges and the idea or hope is the ex-pe diets this
5:16 am
process to a closer release. it's another morning that brittney griner is waking up in the russian prison. the olympian pleading guilty days ago to drug charges after being caught with cannabis oil at a moscow airport in february. >> unintentionally brought to russia. >> reporter: this is leading athletes and reverend al sharpton to speak out. >> bring brittney home. we will stand with her. >> reporter: sharpton joining cherelle ahead of the crowd in the all-star game in chicago. pleading for president biden for her release. >> i'm thankful that the administration took the time to see her as a person and in the middle of what she is going
5:17 am
