1:00 pm
"homeland." i think reality tv is in. i think that happens because people need change, and with each passing decade they have a thirst for something new and original. >> there you have it. jaclyn smith thank you so much. we loved watching you. >> thank you. >> we still watch the reruns. that does it for me "the lead" with jake tapper starts right now. bloodhounds, put police hot on the trail of those two fugitive murderers. i'm jake tapper. this is "the lead." the national lead -- the search grid for a pair of sociopaths is shrinks after authorities pick up the scent of rich art matt and david swelled six days after their jailbreak. now details on the woman who investigators think helped orchestrate the getaway, including how one of the killers made her feel special. police arrested him for allegedly killing a d.c. family.
1:01 pm
newly unsealed court documents reveal shocking details. linkering questions. our exclusive sit-down former president bill clinton responds to accusations that some donors to the clinton foundation were also seeking favors from the hillary clinton state department. good afternoon, everyone. we have some breaks news national by. the bloodhounds have been released and sources say they have a whiff of twot fugitive murderers thought to be slinking an new york farm country. they picked up a scent about three miles away from the prison sliding and shimmying their way to free do you remember through a tangle of pipes and underground pathways. they also have found patches of gras that seemed different from all the rest discarded food wrappers all signs that the two
1:02 pm
may have slept there. law invitement immediately set up road blocks. state troopers are also manning checkpoints lining this eight-mile stretch of route 374, all of this ongoing while questions circulate off the role of the female person. even as a new york state official told cnn that mitchell admitted to investigators that one of the fugitives, richard matt made her feel special. matt just to remind you, he's the one of cutting his boss's body into piece with his a hacksaw after beating hem to death. miguel, what's going on right now? >> reporter: they are working extraordinarily hard. some 600 tips they have gone through looking for these individuals, some 500 searchers out there, searching through hundreds of home. they have narrowed this area down to but a five-mile square
1:03 pm
area where they are intensely searching. . the search intensifies, bloodhound picked up a strong scent three miles from the prison where murderers richard matt and david sweat escaped. investigators found bedding in the form of matted grass or leaves and multiple food wrappers giving authorities confidence they are closing in on the fugitives. >> we're looking underneath every rock behind every tree inside every structure, until we catch these two. >> reporter: authorities creates a perimeter around the site canvassing -- on edge. >> no they his rally could have been in the backyard the whole time tonight, joyce mitchell a prison worker who sources say may have helped one of escapees made her feel special, but the
1:04 pm
official would not say she was in love. authorities are holding off charging officials, because she's being extremely cooperative, and continues to provide information critical to the case. >> she's probably still giving them some information trying to recall conversations that she's had with him over the last couple years. >> reporter: investigators believe mitchell planned to pick up the inmate but changed her mind at the last minute. her cell phone was used to call several people to matt. it is unclear who made the calls or whether mitchell knew anything about them. now, coming back to a live picture, this truck, this flatbed as it moves in a large number eight it looks like large lighting arrays they probably will be moving into the search area. those are with the new york state department of transportation. a lot -- and several other -- actually another flatbed is coming down the roadway here.
1:05 pm
as they have to detour all the way around here. i should say about mrs. mitchell her family has come out very strongly saying there was no love connection between her and those individuals. she was trying to help them if anything and she was just the wrong person wrong place, wrong time. >> miguel marquez, thank you very much. we're in dannemora outside the prison. paolo, what's next? >> investigators saying they are going to continue to move forward with the search. yesterday we heard from governor governors both of new york and vermont, saying they promise to work behind every rock and every tv and perhaps nobody is watching as closely as the people of dannemora. they tell us there's a bit more tension in the air here as many
1:06 pm
of them had assumed that both sweat and matt had moved on potentially left town left the state, even left the country. now with this brand-new discovery, some of the people some of the neighbors we have spoken to here jake are now concerned. there are system people not even get to work because of the roadblock. also school canceled today. there's still question as to whether or not classes will resume tomorrow. perhaps nobody want this to end as much as law enforcement, jake from our vantage point here at the gates of the facility we have see law enforcement come and go in the large transport advance that have been used to shuttle officers back and forth. you can see it on their face they hopeful that this will end very soon and these two guys will be back behind bars but at the same time you can notice they are fully aware there's so much work left to do. >> less 'bring in mike earp he's author of "u.s. marshals"
1:07 pm
inside america's most storied law enforcement agency. yes, in case your wondering, his an crestor was the legendary wyatt earp. so you've -- how fresh does a scent have to be for dogs to pick it up. >> that's the first thing to determine, how active they hit on it and how far the trail will lead them. that will tell them how current the scent is. that's exactly what they're surrounding, but at the same time they've got to put their perimeter around that entire area because that could have been -- okay we know it was last night, hounk have they been gone and how far did they make? they're all over it, but they have to be vigilant about the rest of the area. >> if a dog picks up a scent, does that mean it could be more than a day or two old? it's been raining up there. >> exactly that. it depends on weather conditions and what type of dog. i've had some dog handlers that
1:08 pm
say, you know this is what my dog is good for, you know 24 hours, and he'll hit on it. others say theirs can go longer so i'm not sure. it would be up to the dog handler. >> do you thinks these fugitives, based on your experience would probably be attempting to move mainly at night? if so does law enforcement continue to search during the night? >> absolutely. the teams out there, the vare injures s.w.a.t. teams, search teams are continuing through the night. they also have aviation support, whether they flir devices to pick up heat signals, things like that. more than likely they are moving at night. being summertime we have more night than nighttime, so laying low during the day generally and moving at night. we've heard there's about 500 state and troopers working on the scene working the grid. is that enough? >> that would be determined by
1:09 pm
the command post there by the state police. >> based on your experience. for the geographical area they are doing, and you've got to remember they're doing -- out there 24 hours and in shifts. they have dogs on shifts. 500 is a lot for the area that they are looking at. but at the same time they're sending leads out all over the country. i know from source marshal's task forces are running all kinds of leads that have developed and come into the command post. there's a lot more 1r06d than just what is there? >> i imagine they have night chef vision gogels. >> right. >> what other technology? >> primarily the night vision. they still have dogs out, and the aircrafts and aviation they'll have helicopters out there, as i want earlier. they'll have plane it is with the heat seekers on it to see if one of the cabins up there, somebody has broken into it supposed to be empty, it resonates with a heat signature, they're going to go search it.
1:10 pm
>> these are drones or manned vehicles? >> from what i understand they're manned vehicles. >> and they just have a special infrared detector that picks up heat? >> yes. >> how can you make sure they're people not animals. this is a wooded area of new york there might be bears, deer. >> that's exactly right. any body heat will resonate. they note the difference generally between them but they'll have to search those. you're exactly right. they can tell usually a figure if it's moving. they have looked at that so long, they are experts on that. >> how do you do this without tipping off the convicts who for all we node are in a cabin watching cnn? >> we've had that a lot. they said we knew where you were that kind of stuff. it does happen. in this day and age, when they went through an elaborate part of their escape they knew how much law enforcement was going
1:11 pm
to exert on them to chase them. after they lost their means of transportation and are on foot they know you know -- well they can hear it if they're in the area they know how much is going on each day and night. you might be right. one of the things that law enforcement worries about is they break in somewhere, make a home invasion maybe have taken the subjects hostage, or broken into a camp and turned on the tv and watched what's going on. a chilling thought. retired u.s. marshal mike earp really appreciate it. the public has been told to be on the lookout, but what do you look for? fugitives don't just cut their hair. they've been dorn to burn off their fingerprints or go under the knife. does that work? have they changed their appearances? that's next. big day? ah, the usual.
1:12 pm
moved some new cars. hauled a bunch of steel. kept the supermarket shelves stocked. made sure everyone got their latest gadgets. what's up for the next shift? ah, nothing much. just keeping the lights on.

welcome back to "the lead. "i'm jake tapper. we have more on the national lead on the search for those two fugitives. bloodhounds are thought to be on their tracking now, while the whole region is on edge. would the people in the area recognize these fugitives? the mugshots have been plastered across tvs, billboards and newspapers for six days plenty of time for the two fugitives to have changed their appearance, even alter their tattoos. tom, you have been digging into ways that they can evade capture. >> sure. when you find them they may not look at all like the guys you're looking for. in movies like "the fugitive" and "gone girl" people on the run undergo dramatic changes.
1:17 pm
>> seen anything like that around? >> every time i look in the mirror pal. >> but in real life it can be even more startling. audible ray lee price in georgia, authorities say he bilked investors of millions, faked hi death, and then left his white-collar appearance far behind becoming homeless doing odd jobs and collecting a stash of fake ids. on you in california officials believe scott peterson was about to run when he grew a goatee and went blond. he was caught and convicted anyway. it has happened over many generations. 1930s, alvin "creepy" kravis and around the world a convicted murderer had cosmetic surgery on himself. in colombia this man who broke out of jail got breast

1:19 pm
to check this some other way, because this just does not look like the guy. yet it is. ronald hoska joins my a former director for the fbi criminal investigation and now president of the law neverthelessment legal defense fund. thank you so much. you could see someone on the street and not recognize them an hour later. how does law enforcement change for something like this? >> i don't see this as a law enforcement fear today because of how recent this escaped was, but law enforcement is constantly looking at not only pictures at boy metrics, which there are great advances. there are automated fingerprint readers that the fbi has put out to the field offices. they can fingerprint in the field and say match or no match very quickly. >> the cops that are looking for these guys i mean are they -- are there also alternate versions like make these guys have shaved?
1:20 pm
shaved their heads completely? >> today i don't think that's relevant because you have the lead descriptors, white males of certainly physical description, with tattoos, and so those things are going to be fixed today. they're going to change over time. i don't see any law invitement officer being fooled by five days of beard growth or a shaved head or dyed hair on these guys today. anybody who is in these woods today is going to get identified. >> look at the tats right there, could that be significant? could they be covered up and removed? >> unquestionably. you can tattoo over it, or remove it but it will leave another mark that tells you that snug was under here. over time if they were to slow down and take the time to get tattoos written over that may be relevant. that may be something that's important. not today. they're on the run. >> state records suggest that most new york escapees are captured within 24 hours,
1:21 pm
between 2002 through 2013 only one fugitive managed to evade capture for more than two days. does it price you they have lasted out there for six dates? >> well these guys are in big woods, we assume right now. and we thought at first they may have had a way out of this area but now it looks like they may be on foot and much closer. law enforcement will look at their network. if you have a facilitation network. it's going to enhance your chances of getting lost and disappearing. i think they're going to get caught caught near term. i believe this investigation is being very well coordinated by new york state police. the leads will lead to their capture. this will be intelligence driven gull back to the interviews being conducted at the facility increasing circles around their friends, so they're going to crack this case. they're going to get these guys. >> do you think they're still together? >> because they escaped together because it appears as
1:22 pm
though they have a close bond i think in their minds, while one sleeps the other can be looking out and listening for footsteps coming through the woods or for helicopters approaching. so i think my estimation is they're better together than they are separately right now? >> cases like this that you're familiar with where have they been hide snug do they find a cabin somewhere in the woods? the back room of a motel? somewhere where people don't even no they're there? maybe in somebody's toolshed? >> it all changes. if you look for further south than a couple hours, ed freen, he didn't go very far at all the, but these are big woods. that's why you hear and sea the value of some of the surveillance assets that are on site much there. these police can get in a helicopter or plan and use forward look infrared that may be more effective than trying to look through the canopy of

leaves in the day. >> and they're presumed dangry no matter what? >> because of their backgrounds, you have to assume these are, a, you know they're dangerous appeared you have to assume they are armed. >> that's got to challenging for people searching, you're not only looking for somebody, but somebody that might snap your neck at any moment. >> if they were to have long weapons in woods like this it is incredibly easy for them at a distance tore covered up with leaves take a shot and hurt or kill law enforcement. terrifying work. thank you so much. the nation's capitol is full the interns, but rarely quite like this. a 167-year-old honors student faces a judge, accused of dropping out of school to work for isis. plus bill clinton not holding back in our one on one interview. i asked him what did hillary clinton know about the foreign donors when she was secretary of state? his candid answer is ahead. ♪ ♪

concluding that the v.a. did not deny services that miles had not requested long-term mental health condition. hopper today blasted the report in an interview with me calling it quote, a whitecash, since it does not mention among other things miles ask for help. if the v.a. is not to give extra consideration to people like miles, the policies should change. the v.a. however, disagree. how is that works? questions about the clinton foundation i sit down with former president bill clinton. no question is off-limits. that's next. also the decade that changed the way we watch television to lange wang that may make you wince today.

1:39 pm
meetings. nothing was off-limits as we also agreed to ask him about questions about issues his foundation is working on, such as the economy. >> i want to address a couple issues having to do with the clinton foundation since it has been in the news a lot lately. i've heard you say that there's no evidence that any of the donors who have given to the foundation received anything in response from the state department while secretary clinton was there. >> nobody even suggested or talked about it or thought about it until the political season began and somebody said what about this? now, some of the companies that supported the foundation for years, many of them before she was ever secretary of state. she was a senator when i left office though -- >> right. >> they do this they do philanthropy too. no one had ever asked me for anything or any of that. >> let me ask you about that. i think a lot of people might
1:40 pm
say, okay you say there's no evidence that anything was done for them but can you really say that these companies, these wealthy individuals, these governments, none of them sought anything? i mean some of them did have business before the state department. >> i don't know. you never know what people's motives are, but i'm pretty sure that everybody gait to haiti and their aftermath saw on television and were horrified. >> you're not saying you don't know if anybody sought any favor, just that there was no -- >> no and i don't think hillary would know either. you know she was pretty busy those years. i don't -- i never saw her study a list of my contributors or -- and i had no idea who was doing business before the state department but i will say this. she believed that part of the job as secretary of state was to advance america's economic interests around the world. if she hadn't been doing this economic diplomacy work nobody
1:41 pm
would have been doing it. and -- but i never thought about whether there was any overlap. i'll just give you an example. america has always having to lobby for american-made airplanes, because we believe other competition overseas is more heavily subsidized by government. boeing is less subsidized than airbus and we believe it's hard to get a fair deal. i did it when i was president. i thought it was good good for american jobs good no america's economy, good for the national security of the countries involved. so i wouldn't be a bit surprised if some of that wasn't going on when boeing announced they wanted to invest money in haiti to help them recover from their adversity. but i don't think that they did it to make america the government like them better. >> someone recently described
1:42 pm
the clinton foundation's purpose as using the powerful to help the powerless. who do you see as the powerless in america today? >> well i would say this. we try to get people who have money to give it to people who don't and give it in a way that's empowering so that it actually changes their lives. but i think people who are working as hard as they can, who don't have enough money to support their kids and immediate basic human needs are powerless. i think people who would die -- give anything to go to work and can't get employment or are stuck in part-time jobs i think people who live in pockets of america, which have been totally untouched by the recovery rural, coal country, the eastern part of the country, the native-american reservations that don't have casinos, they don't have enough population density, many places in the
